Lancet commission to study gambling as “public health predicament”

first_imgThe publication will work with Heather Wardle from the University of Glasgow in the UK; Louisa Degenhardt of the University of New South Wales in Australia, and Shekhar Saxena from Harvard University in the US through the commission. The commission will therefore push for science-led, transformational change in policy and political action, with a core aim of helping reduce the impact of disordered gambling on poverty levels in regions around the world. “The normalisation of gambling in many countries, its widespread and easy accessibility, and governments’ addiction to revenues from gambling could be a threat to reaching the sustainable development goals,” Gambling addiction, it noted, was now recognised in the International Classification of Diseases 11th Revision (ICD-11) and Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5th Edition (DSM-5).

It was been formed with problem gambling and addiction increasingly viewed as a health-harming addictive behaviour, the Lancet explained.

This barn-inspired home offers a striking reference to rural vernacular. Long and lean, the form is remarkably simple. A monolithic roof plane sweeps up past the large established walnut tree to form a double-height concert hall living space with mezzanine viewing gallery for the two retired musicians to practice, play and entertain friends.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe owners moved to be closer to family in Wellington but settled in the Wairarapa, wanting to make the most of the more temperate climate and beautiful sunny evenings. Their musical interest drove the design to create an acoustically, environmentally conscious and accessible home that felt compact but could effortlessly accommodate extended family.Save this picture!© Jason Mann PhotographyMuch like a hay barn, in this design form follows function. The double-height roof cleverly accommodates a double garage and workshop at ground level and guest two bedroom and bathroom loft above. Adjacent to this, the open-plan kitchen / living / dining room takes advantage of the high ceiling. To the northeast end of the house, the main sleeping quarters domestic-scaled 2.4m stud height creates more modest volumes. The terrace wraps around the eastern façade offering the perfect sheltered spot for a quiet morning coffee. Services are efficiently oriented along the southern spine of the house, with generous laundry, kitchen, bathroom and separate WC facilities. A highly insulated nearly airtight envelope clad in corrugated iron and shiplap redwood is practical yet warmly references the redwood groves surrounding their previous family home.Save this picture!© Jason Mann PhotographyThe awning, a reinterpretation of the Wairarapa veranda shelters the northern façade from the hot summer sun while creating an impressive entrance.

As a result, the Trust has committed additional funding to build on the work highlighted by the two programmes. The Trust is now seeking to identify a small number of refugee-led projects that: Advertisement help to break down barriers faced by individuals or communities in the field of asylum, immigration and resettlementprovide new solutions to, or test ideas about the delivery of public services and / or community resources to asylum seekers and immigrants in the UKhave the potential to shift public opinion so that refugees are seen as an asset to society rather than a burdenprovide good practice lessons that can influence policy makers and the media ideally will be completed by the end of 2003Barrow Cadbury Trust also wants to identify a small number of locally-rooted, voluntary-based activities led by disabled people which:help people overcome barriers to living independent lives and / or contributing to their communityfacilitate real change to the way in which public services are delivered to / experienced by disabled peopleprovide good practice lessons that can influence policy makers and the mediaideally will be completed by the end of 2003The Trust is a grant-making foundation which seeks to encourage a just, equal, peaceful and democratic society. It uses income from its endowment fund of £75 million to fund organisations, normally charities, which share the objectives of the trust.New Barrow Cadbury Trust Director, Sukhvinder Stubbs said: “Barrow Cadbury Trust believes strongly in self advocacy and the potential of grassroots projects to affect change. Our recent pilot programmes in asylum and immigration, and disability and inclusion have built networks across our funded projects and demonstrated good practice that has empowered individuals and whole communities. They have also created opportunities for projects to talk directly to policy makers. This new funding programme builds on that work and takes it a step further.” Grant applications need to be completed by 15 November 2002.

But the organisation deplored the fact that enquiry was not ordered sooner. The decision to hold the enquiry was reported to ITN by Col. Ray Sheperd of Centcom in Qatar on 28 April.”It was high time the US army decided to investigate this tragic incident,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said. “It is a safe bet that it was ITN’s independent enquiry in the field rather than Colin Powell’s promises that forced the US military to end their silence on the incident and offer an explanation.”While on an official visit to Brussels on 3 April, US secretary of state Colin Powell gave a “personal” undertaking to Fabienne Nerac, the wife of one of the two missing ITN crew members, to obtain information about the fate of her husband. She has so far not received any information from the Americans.”ITN and my family have been asking the Americans to launch an investigation for the past 40 days,” Fabienne Nerac said. “Now they finally have, and I hope we are going to receive information quickly. The Americans have promised to question their marines, locate the videotape recording they made at the site of the incident, and to give us a report on the progress of the investigation each week,” she said.In the 22 March incident, a four-member crew from Britain’s Independent Television News (ITN) came under fire near the southern city of Basra. The gunfire probably came from a group of US marines. ITN reporter Terry Lloyd, 51, was killed and Belgian cameraman Daniel Demoustier was wounded. The two other members of the crew, French cameraman Frédéric Nerac and Lebanese interpreter Hussein Othman, have been missing ever since.

While taking the suo moto cognizance of the issues, the Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel, Justice Siddharth Mridul and Justice Talwant Singh have ordered that all such interim orders shall stand automatically extended till 31/08/20 or until further orders, except where any orders to the contrary have been passed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in any particular matter, during the intervening period. Taking the suo moto cognizance while exercising its extraordinary jurisdiction under Articles 226 and 227 of the Constitution, the court has passed the said direction for the interim orders passed by itself as well as by the subordinate courts. ‘Needless to clarify that in case, the aforesaid extension of interim order causes any hardship of an extreme nature to a party to such proceeding, they would be at liberty to seek appropriate relief, as may be advised’, the Bench noted. During the course of the hearing, Chief Justice DN Patel highlighted that 4-5 employees of the High Court have tested positive for COVID19, however, all of them are asymptomatic. The Health Department of the Delhi Government has set up a 3 days camp for Rapid Antigen Testing for the officers and the officials of the Delhi High Court. The court further noted that there’s a need to address the issue of the released prisoners returning to prison as possible carriers of the virus. The court said: ‘The idea is to ensure that the released prisoners do not return to prison as asymptomatic patients of COVID19, especially when the prisons are overcrowded.’ The court has also directed for the said order to be uploaded on the website of this Court and be conveyed to all the Standing Counsel, UOI, GNCTD, DDA, Civic Authorities, Delhi High Court Bar Association, all the other Bar Associations of Delhi, as well as to all District Courts subordinate to this court.  Next Storylast_img read more
