US hospital told to remove life support

first_imgA Texas judge has ordered a hospital to remove the life support of a brain-dead woman being kept alive because she is pregnant.Judge RH Wallace gave John Peter Smith Hospital until Monday evening to cease life-saving measures for Marlise Munoz.Mrs Munoz, 33, was 14 weeks pregnant when she fell unconscious in November. It is believed she had a blood clot.The hospital had argued that a state law prohibits denying life-saving treatment to pregnant patients.‘Legally dead’Mrs Munoz’s husband, Erick, filed suit against the hospital on 14 January, arguing that life-support efforts go against her wishes as a paramedic familiar with end-of-life issues.“Marlise Munoz is legally dead, and to further conduct surgical procedures on a deceased body is nothing short of outrageous,” he claimed in court documents.The court filing also stipulated that, as Mrs Munoz is technically deceased, “she cannot possibly be a ‘pregnant patient’” under Texas health and safety codes.Mrs Munoz, 33, has remained unconscious since her husband discovered her on the kitchen floor on 26 November while pregnant with the couple’s second child.A blood clot has been listed as a possible cause.Mr Munoz’s lawyers subsequently revealed that Mrs Munoz’s foetus – believed to be at 22 weeks gestation and to have been without oxygen for some time before medical intervention in November – was “distinctly abnormal”, according to hospital medical records.On Friday, Judge Wallace ruled the Fort Worth hospital must remove Mrs Munoz’s life support by 17:00 local time (23:00 GMT) on Monday.BBC News Tweet Share 28 Views   no discussions HealthInternationalLifestylePrint US hospital told to remove life support by: – January 25, 2014center_img Sharing is caring!

VanCamp Walks Off With An Argonaut Win

first_imgVanCamp Walks Off With An Argonaut Win Share April 13, 2007Box Score DECATUR, Ala. – With the score tied at two in the bottom of the seventh inning, Nicky VanCamp (Davenport, Iowa/Kirkwood CC) drove a 3-1 pitch over the right center field fence for a walk-off home run as West Florida defeated Southern Arkansas, 4-2, on Friday. West Florida (27-20, 7-7 GSC) improved to 4-0 at the GSC Crossover, while Southern Arkansas (23-21, 11-8 GSC) dropped to 0-8 all-time against West Florida.”I just wanted to get a good solid hit to move the runners over,” said VanCamp. “I really wasn’t sure whether the ball was over the fence when I hit it. I wanted to help out Emily (Burge) and get the weight off of her shoulders since she pitched a great game.Trailing 2-1, Melissa Chastang (Saraland, Ala./Satsuma HS) led off the bottom of the seventh inning with a walk. Chastang advanced to second on Whitney Gay’s (Cantonment, Fla./Tate HS) ground out and eventually advanced to third on a passed ball. Down to their final strike, Taren Walton (Pensacola, Fla./Daytona Beach CC) hit a line drive that went off the leg of Southern Arkansas pitcher Cheyenne Savony. Chastang scored the game-tying run as Walton was safe at first base. VanCamp then delivered the opposite field, walk off home run over the right field fence. It was the first Argonaut walk-off home run since Erica Olson’s game-winning blast in a 1-0 win over Florida Southern in the 2005 NCAA Division II South Region Tournament.”Anyone could have got that hit, I just got lucky,” said VanCamp. “Taren (Walton) helped take the weight off of my shoulders with the game-tying hit. It took the pressure off of me.”West Florida opened the scoring in the bottom of the third inning. Chastang led off the inning with a double down the left field line. After Southern Arkansas starter Rebecca Forse retired the next two Argonauts, Walton singled up the middle to give West Florida a 1-0 lead. The lead was short-lived as Whitney Brannon led off the top of the fourth inning with Southern Arkansas’s first hit, a home run over the center field fence off of Emily Burge (Pace, Fla./Pace HS).West Florida put two runners on in the bottom of the fifth inning, but did not score. Southern Arkansas took their first lead of the game on a lead off home run by Stephanie Beason in the top of the sixth inning. The two home runs were the only two Southern Arkansas hits.Burge (13-11) earned the win by only allowing two runs on two hits while striking out seven in a complete game win. Savony (10-9) suffered the loss after allowing three runs on two hits in 1 2/3 innings of relief. VanCamp and Walton combined for five hits and drove in all four Argonaut runs.West Florida will continue action in the GSC Crossover with a pair of games on Saturday. West Florida face Ouachita Baptist at 2 p.m. CST and Arkansas Tech at 4 p.m. CST.

Love them or hate them, trips to Aroostook County a way of life for local high school teams

first_img Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 Bio BAR HARBOR — Locating the escape hatch on the average coach bus wouldn’t require a passenger to walk more than a few feet. Locating the escape hatch on the coach bus used recently by the Mount Desert Island cheer team, on the other hand, would require a trip to an unknown field off Interstate 95.On the afternoon of Jan. 12, the Trojans were making their way to Caribou to compete in the Big East championships when the hatch at the front of the bus came loose. When the team arrived in Old Town for the scheduled bus driver switch, the hatch was tightened, and the bus was deemed fit to continue traveling.Soon after MDI got back on the road, though, what appeared to have been a minor malfunction earlier turned into a near disaster for everybody involved. As the team reached the home stretch of its journey, a strong headwind came about and blew the hatch straight off as a stunned group of cheerleaders, coaches and traveling parents looked on in disbelief.“I’ve never seen anything like that,” MDI head coach Missy Leland said. “The wind just picked it up and completely took the thing off the top of the bus. It was crazy.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textThe incident, which took place during a rainstorm near Houlton, didn’t have much of an effect on MDI, which finished third at the competition after arriving in Caribou in plenty of time following a stop for repairs. Local teams, after all, are used to making these long trips to Aroostook County, which have been staples for local teams across all sports for many years.Ellsworth’s Charlie Hughes takes on a wrestler from Fort Kent during a high school wrestling tournament Jan. 7 in Caribou. The Ellsworth wrestling team was one of many to compete in Aroostook County throughout the 2017-18 high school sports season. SHA-LAM PHOTOGRAPHY PHOTOWith a limited number of high schools scattered throughout the 20,000 square miles that span the state’s five easternmost counties, traveling long distances for games is a must for teams throughout the region. Matchups between Hancock County and Aroostook County opponents are among the longest of these treks, which force some teams to make trips that total 10 hours over both legs.No local school has been spared from that fate. Even teams that don’t schedule games in the area during the regular season occasionally travel to The County for playoff games, which is what the Deer Isle-Stonington girls’ basketball team had to do when it had to play a preliminary game against Fort Fairfield in the Class D North playoffs three years ago.“I swear it took us nearly five hours,” Deer Isle-Stonington head coach Randy Shepard said. “When you live around here, you have to travel. That’s just the way it is.”One of the most frequently scheduled arrangements between schools in the two counties pits the Ellsworth and MDI varsity teams against Caribou and Presque Isle. The two teams participate in the same conference in nearly every sport offered by both schools, a setup that requires multiple bus rides between the state’s northern reaches and coastal lands no matter the season.“It’s long, and it’s easy to get bus legs if you’re not careful,” said Andy Pooler, who makes the trip two or three times per year as head coach of both the Ellsworth girls’ basketball team and the MDI baseball team. “You have both teams on the same crowded bus, and the drive up isn’t easy.”Mount Desert Island’s Alexis Clarito defends against Presque Isle’s Kasey Haley during the second half of a high school girls’ basketball game Jan. 27 in Bar Harbor. MDI and Ellsworth play four of their 18 regular-season basketball games against Presque Isle and Caribou. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELLBasketball meetings between the two factions are particularly challenging. Ellsworth and MDI play four of their 18 regular-season games against Caribou and Presque Isle, which battle the Eagles and Trojans on back-to-back days in one county in December before traveling to the other at the end of January to do the same.In order to save on fuel costs and avoid more than a day’s worth of combined travel over the course of each season, the road teams stay in hotels following their Friday night games. As soon as the Saturday contests come to a close, the players pack the buses and head home with their parents traveling close behind them.“Parents pretty much do everything separate from us [for basketball]. Sometimes they will book rooms in the same hotel, but a lot of them will stay in a different hotel and travel in their own vehicles and everything,” Ellsworth senior Zach Harris said. “It’s pretty separated, but they still come and support us, which is awesome and very important to us.”To add to the importance of such weekends, all eight varsity teams are frequently among the state’s best. Depending on whether a team wins both games, loses both games or earns a split, it could find itself anywhere from the top of the standings to fighting simply to earn a bye in the prelims.Members of the Presque Isle boys’ basketball team board the team bus after a game against MDI on Jan. 27 in Bar Harbor. The Presque Isle and Caribou boys’ and girls’ team travel to Hancock County one weekend every season to play games against MDI and Ellsworth on back-to-back days before heading home. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELL“No matter who you are, those two days are going to test you,” Pooler said. “You’re up against some of the best teams in the state in what’s really not even two full days. Even when you’re at home, it’s a different environment.”The state’s abundant wildlife also has been known to affect trips to The County. Such was the case with the John Bapst girls’ basketball team, which had a startling encounter on its journey to Presque Isle last week when a wild turkey flew into the bus windshield and made a large crack in the side of the glass.Fortunately for the John Bapst players and coaches, the team made the trip on a large coach bus rather than a typical school bus, just as the MDI cheer team had done two weeks earlier. That minimized the damage to the window and allowed the team to continue its drive without needing to stop for repairs.“It just happened out of nowhere, but our bus driver did a good job of handling the situation” John Bapst head coach Chris Woodside said. “It’s a good thing it was just a turkey and not a moose or a large deer because that would have been a much bigger problem, obviously.”Before the team got back on the road, the John Bapst players decided to hold a mock funeral for it. They also named it “Sherman” in honor of the Aroostook County town through which they had been passing at the time.Even for Woodside, who’s journeyed across the state for games many times before as a player and coach at Calais, the experience was one of a kind — and a reminder of what can take place on long road trips along Maine’s northern highways.“I guess you never know what you’re going to see when you’re going through The County,” Woodside said. “It’s a big area, and a lot can happen.” Latest Posts Mike MandellMike Mandell is the sports editor at The Ellsworth American and Mount Desert Islander.

Big East : West Virginia reaches settlement with conference, set to join Big 12 next season

first_img Published on February 13, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Stephen: | @Stephen_Bailey1 The Big East Board of Directors voted to terminate West Virginia’s membership in the Big East at the end of June, according to a statement released by the Big East on Tuesday.The vote stipulates that WVU must fulfill obligations agreed upon between WVU and the Big East, which resolved a lawsuit between the school and conference. West Virginia will be released from the conference on June 30, 2012.‘West Virginia University has acknowledged and agreed that the Court in Monongalia County, West Virginia, will enter a judgment that the Big East Conference Bylaws are valid and enforceable, and will dismiss with prejudice all of West Virginia’s claims against the Conference,’ Big East Commissioner John Marinatto said in the statement.The conference bylaws state that when a member unilaterally withdraws from the conference, it must pay an exit fee and undergo a 27-month waiting period. However, the bylaws also state that a three-quarters vote by the Big East Conference Board would allow a program to leave immediately, as is the case with WVU.West Virginia will officially join the Big 12 conference in July and begin play in the conference this fall. The conference released its football schedule Tuesday and the Mountaineers will play their first Big 12 game on Sept. 29, when Baylor visits Morgantown, W. Va.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn making its decision to terminate West Virginia, the Big East factored in the accusations that WVU made against the Big East in a lawsuit which is being dismissed, according to the statement. It also considered the process WVU planned to take to resolve the litigation. Those steps included the payment of a higher exit fee than that required by the bylaws, according to the statement.Athletic Director Oliver Luck said in a statement that the agreement prohibited releasing its details. However, no state or taxpayer funds, tuition or academic support funds were used in the settlement, Luck said.‘Our membership in the Big 12 offers WVU significant advantages,’ WVU Athletic Director Oliver Luck said in a statement. ‘The Big 12 is a strong and vibrant conference academically and athletically. We look forward to the potential academic and athletic partnerships and financial opportunities that membership in the Big 12 offers.’WVU President Jim Clements emphasized the importance of the school’s move to the Big 12.‘We are in great company in the Big 12, joining a group of world-class research universities – many of them large public land-grant flagship institutions like WVU,’ Clements said in a statement. ‘These schools have quality academics, research, athletic programs, winning traditions and loyal, passionate fans.’The early termination sets a precedent for other schools currently serving that two-plus year exit notice, including Syracuse and Pittsburgh. Both programs informed the Big East of their move to the Atlantic Coast Conference in late September. The Big East is set to add Central Florida, Houston, Memphis and Southern Methodist for all sports in 2013. Boise State and San Diego State will also join in 2013 as football-only members.

Women of Troy dominate UCLA to halt losing skid

first_imgUSC (15-9, 8-4 Pac-12) never trailed in what was a crucial game as the team heads into the final stretch of its Pac-12 schedule.With the win, the Women of Troy sweep the season series against the Bruins (11-13, 5-7), who continue to struggle in conference play. It also keeps USC in third place in the Pac-12 standings.“We played a complete basketball game,” said USC head coach Cynthia Cooper-Dyke. “And the results speak for themselves.”Saturday’s matchup was not as close as the last time the two teams met in December when USC narrowly edged out the Bruins, 56-54, at Pauley Pavilion just before the new year.Senior forward Cassie Harberts led the way for the Women of Troy with 17 points and nine rebounds.She was once again the catalyst for USC’s success on the block as they outscored the Bruins 38-22 in the paint. Saturday might have very well been the last time Harberts would face the rival Bruins.The team’s constant activity on defense, something that Cooper-Dyke has continued to preach, allowed the team to create turnovers and get in the open court. The Women of Troy converted 15 turnovers into 14 fast-break points.“Our defense allowed us to get out on some fast breaks,” Cooper-Dyke said. “Coming into the game, we knew that we wanted to run.”The UCLA bench, which was weakened by injuries, also had a tough time keeping up with the Women of Troy — USC’s reserves outscored UCLA’s 21-0.Junior guard Ariya Crook started the game off on the right note for the Women of Troy with a step-back three-point jumper that set the tone for the rest of the game. Crook finished the game with 10 points.The Bruins tried to catch USC off guard by coming out in a couple different zones and presses to begin the game, but the Women of Troy would not be rattled.An 8-0 run to start the game sparked by senior forward Desireé Bradley’s four-point spark off the bench allowed the Women of Troy to jump out to a 13-4 lead. Bradley netted seven points in her last home game against the Bruins.“I’ve always tried to be a spark off the bench for my teammates,” Bradley said. “I think I was able to get back to doing that and I hope it gave my team a boost.”There was really no looking back from there, as the Women of Troy took a 33-20 lead into halftime.The second half would begin a lot like the first, with USC coming out of the gates on a 13-5 run in the opening minutes to jump out to a commanding 46-25 lead. The team was able to rally behind behind a fairly loud Galen Center crowd, most of who stuck around for the men’s contest that would follow.“[It was] one of our best starts to a game and starts to a second half,” Cooper-Dyke said. “We started the game with the correct level of intensity, we played great defense and we executed on the offensive end.”USC would go on to shoot a little more than 40 percent for the game and nearly matched that from long range, going five-for-13 from the three-point line.Two of those three-point field goals came from freshman guard Courtney Jaco, who was a perfect two-for-two from long range and finished with eight points.“Coach Cooper just told me to stay ready, be ready to shoot, and my teammates found me the ball and I knocked it down,” Jaco said.If there was an area where the Women of Troy showed weakness, it was at the free-throw line. USC shot a dismal 7-for-15 at the charity stripe, which was good for just more than 46 percent — well below the team’s season average of 66 percent.The Bruins would not concede the game easily, scoring nine straight points to cut the lead to 52-42 with a little more than six minutes remaining.Another Crook three-pointer would halt that UCLA momentum, though, making it a 13-point game. USC would never allow the Bruins to get back into the game, adding on to their double-digit lead to pick up another important conference win.The USC women’s basketball team will go back on the road this weekend to take on the Oregon schools, whom USC swept at the Galen Center in their previous matchups. The Women of Troy will take on Oregon in Eugene, Ore. at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, before meeting up with Oregon State for a 12 p.m. Sunday matinee in Corvallis, Ore. On Saturday afternoon, the Women of Troy ended a three-game losing skid in dominant fashion, downing crosstown rival UCLA 68-54 in a blowout at the Galen Center.Primetime performance · Cassie Harberts powered the Women of Troy with 17 points and nine rebounds during the team’s win over UCLA. – Corey Marquetti | Daily Trojanlast_img read more
