first_imgDaily Mail 11 May 2016Family First Comment: No slippery slope?   Yeah right!A former victim of child sex abuse has ended her life under Dutch euthanasia laws because she could not live with her mental suffering.The woman, in her twenties, was given a lethal injection after doctors and psychiatrists decided that her post-traumatic stress disorder and other conditions were incurable.It went ahead despite improvements in the woman’s psychological condition after ‘intensive therapy’ two years ago, and even though doctors in the Netherlands accept that a demand for death from a psychiatric patient may be no more than a cry for help.The woman, who has not been named, began to suffer from mental disorders 15 years ago following sexual abuse, according to the papers released by the Dutch Euthanasia Commission. The timescale means she was abused between the ages of five and 15.News of her death angered anti-euthanasia MPs and disability campaigners in Britain. One Labour MP said it meant sex abuse victims were now being punished with death.READ MORE: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3583783/Sex-abuse-victim-20s-allowed-choose-euthanasia-Holland-doctors-decided-post-traumatic-stress-conditions-uncurable.htmlEuthanasia debate reignited by 20yo sexual abuse victimNZ Herald 16 May 2016When we think about euthanasia, many of us picture an elderly person.They’ve had many good years, but an illness has ruined their quality of life.

Longtime infielder Ryan Zimmerman and pitcher Joe Ross are opting out of playing as Major League Baseball tries to get back amid the COVID-19 pandemic. ZANARDI INJUREDSecond surgery for ZanardiSIENA, Italy (AP) — Italian auto racing champion turned Paralympic gold medalist Alex Zanardi has undergone a second brain surgery. It comes 10 days after an emergency operation following a crash on his handbike. The latest surgery lasted 2½ hours. Zanardi was then returned to the intensive care unit in a medically induced coma at the Santa Maria alle Scotte Hospital in Siena. The hospital says in a medical bulletin, “His condition remains stable from a cardio-respiratory and metabolic viewpoint, grave from a neurological viewpoint.” The 53-year-old Zanardi lost both of his legs in an auto racing crash nearly 20 years ago. Associated Press General manager Mike Rizzo says the team supports Zimmerman and Ross deciding not to play the 60-game season that’s set to start in late July. Zimmerman says his family situation factored into his decision. His mother is at high risk for the coronavirus because of multiple sclerosis, and he has three young children including a newborn. The 35-year-old says the decision doesn’t mean he’s retiring.VIRUS OUTBREAK-MLB-LEAKEDiamondbacks pitcher Leake opts outPHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Mike Leake is opting out of the 2020 season due to concerns about the coronavirus. Ontario Premier Doug Ford says city, provincial and federal authorities “kind of gave their approval,” but the Toronto Blue Jays are waiting for a letter of support from the federal government. He also says Dr. David Williams, Ontario’s chief medical officer, requires a few tweaks to the plan. MLB requires an exemption, as anyone entering Canada for nonessential reasons must self-isolate for 14 days, and the U.S.-Canada border remains closed to nonessential travel until at least July 21.NBA-WIZARDS-WALLWizards rule out John Wall returning this seasonWASHINGTON (AP) — John Wall will not join the Washington Wizards for the resumption of the NBA season this summer, ending the chances of the five-time All-Star guard playing his first game since 2018. CLEVELAND (AP) — A person familiar with the deals says the Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to terms with free agent forward Jordan Bell on a two-year contract and signed forward Dean Wade to a multiyear deal. The person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the deals says the additions fill two roster openings for the Cavs ahead of the NBA reopening its transaction window. The 6-foot-8 Bell was a second-round pick in 2017. He spent his first two seasons with Golden State. Wade played in 12 games for Cleveland last season. MLB-ATHLETIC SIGNINGSA’s top draft pick Tyler Soderstrom gets $3.3M signing bonus General manager Tommy Sheppard effectively ruled out Wall returning this season when he said Monday the 29-year-old wouldn’t be part of the Wizards’ traveling party to Central Florida. Among the factors in the decision was a cap of 35 people per team in the quarantined bubble at Walt Disney World. The COVID-19 pandemic also hindered Wall’s progress in his rehab from multiple surgeries.Wall hasn’t played an NBA game since December 2018. Surgery for bone spurs in his left heel ended that season; while he was working his way back from that, he tore his left Achilles tendon and needed another operation in 2019. He declared himself “110 percent” healthy in late May.PGA-WATNEY RECOVERSWatney bored in isolation, nervous about how he got virusMonday marked the 10th day of self-isolation for Nick Watney, the minimum required for PGA Tour players who test positive for the new coronavirus. Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen did not elaborate on Leake’s decision during a Zoom call, but the pitcher’s agent issued a statement saying he made a personal decision not to play during the pandemic. Hazen also said two players on Arizona’s 60-man roster tested positive for COVID-19, as did another player not in Arizona.VIRUS OUTBREAK-MLB-CANADAOntario premier says approval near for Toronto gamesTORONTO (AP) — The premier of Ontario says Major League Baseball is close to winning approval to play in Toronto amid the coronavirus pandemic. He said he is feeling good except for some minor fatigue, perhaps brought on by a major case of boredom, and except for the distinction of becoming the first of what now is five players and two caddies who have tested positive since the PGA Tour returned amid the COVID-19 pandemic.He lost his sense of smell, a sensation he described as “gnarly,” but said that is coming back. And perhaps the strangest sensation is being at a golf resort without playing golf. He remains in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, as the PGA Tour has moved on to Connecticut, and now Detroit this week, and then two weeks in Ohio. The show goes on.Three more players tested positive during the Travelers Championship — Cameron Champ before the tournament started, Denny McCarthy after his first round and Dylan Frittelli after he missed the cut. Two caddies tested positive, which caused a chain-reaction of withdrawals. Harris English tested positive Monday at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit.NBA-CAVALIERS-BELLSource: Cavs agree to 2-year deal with free agent Bell KAEPERNICK-NETFLIXNetflix to dramatize Kaepernick’s path to activismLOS ANGELES (AP) — Colin Kaepernick is joining with Emmy-winning filmmaker Ava DuVernay on a Netflix miniseries about the teenage roots of the former NFL player’s activism.

Erickson: Schutlz, Zengerle end scoring drought, may not be enough

first_imgFriday night – as the Wisconsin men’s hockey team was blanked for the first time at home this season in a 3-0 decision against No. 10 Denver – I had the unsettling feeling I would soon have to eat my own words.Sitting next to former Heralder Ben Worgull in the press box, witnessing the frustration on the Badgers’ bench only a few levels below, Worgull leaned over and remarked, “Has Justin Schultz already gone pro”?The sarcastic one-liner could not have summed up Schultz‘s second half of the season in a more perfect way.Schultz leads the team with 13 goals, but only four of those goals have come in the second half of the season. While he’s managed eight assists in that span of time – for a season total of 27 – Schultz hasn’t made a mark on the stat sheet in seven of the Badgers’ 12 games since the break.Now it isn’t extremely unusual for most players to go stretches at a time without scoring, but for a player like Schultz, it’s downright weird.Only a few months ago he led the nation in points alongside sophomore Mark Zengerle (who we’ll come back to later). While his 40 points this season are impressive for a defenseman and earn him the No. 9 standing nationally, he was easily on pace to break his 47 points from a year ago headed into the break – something I boldly predicted he would do. With four games left in the season, he’ll have to average at least two points a game to beat last year’s mark by a single point.Similarly, Zengerle, who leads the Badgers with 41 points, went four games straight without posting a single point before Saturday night. There are only two other games this season when he hasn’t scored: the season-opener and the 3-0 shutout at Minnesota State on Jan. 14 that snapped his 20-game point streak.In a strange phenomenon that has epitomized the Badgers second half, Wisconsin’s two Hobey Baker hopefuls found themselves in a severe scoring drought, and I was starting to question whether I had counted my chickens too soon.Only a few weeks prior I had heralded Schultz‘s chances for a successful run at the Hobey Baker Memorial Award. After the first series back from break he looked more on top of his game than he ever has been. But then he had a rare weekend off the stat sheet, which soon became a trend.Then Zengerle seemed to be following in Schultz‘s lead, and the Badgers faced a five-game losing streak.The duo seemed to disappear and the offensive threat they carry became a faint memory.Waiting in the Kohl Center pressroom Friday night, I couldn’t help but to continually ponder over this strange disappearance, but the frustration that was emanating from these two – specifically Zengerle – could not have been more palpable.Throughout their disappearance from the box score, head coach Mike Eaves has addressed the need for them to find a way to make big plays and get back on the score card, but after Friday night, he simply wanted them to relax.And that’s exactly what they did.My fears subsided, only slightly, as the Badgers’ starting centerman put the Badgers back on the board and scored his first goal since hosting Alaska-Anchorage on Jan. 20.By his reaction, it was clear all frustration and worry of needing to score had melted away as did a classic bow-and-arrow celebration.“I don’t think I tried to do as much,” Zengerle said. “[Friday] night I tried to do a little too much; skating it in, I was losing it. Tonight I just tried to play [and do] what I was doing back my 20-game streak when I just tried to play my game and it worked out.”With just over five minutes left in the third, the Badgers had a comfortable 4-2 lead and were headed on the power play. So far they had been 0-7 with the man advantage throughout the series.That’s when Schultz finally broke his unwanted streak. From the point, the junior defenseman ripped one on net and DU sophomore goaltender Sam Brittain just couldn’t get a pad on it.While the duo can’t completely right the season, they’ve put themselves back on the map as they hold onto those No. 7 and 9 spots in the nation in points.Both Zengerle and Schultz posted a goal and an assist and showed that the lowly 11th place team still has some fight, taking down a team that is in contention for the conference title and giving its home crowd one final game to get stoked about.After the game ended, Schultz stayed out and lingered at center ice taking it all in – the band, the fans, everything. Zengerle went and gave him a hug and they headed into the locker room.“I was just kind of taking it in, who knows, this could be my last time playing here,” Schultz said. “I’m not saying it is but just kind of taking it in just in case I never get to play here again.”Kelly is a junior majoring in journalism. Think Schultz and Zengerle can still help UW make something more of this season? Send her a Tweet @kellymerickson.last_img read more
