Batting fails again for struggling Red Force

first_imgBASSETERRE, St Kitts, CMC – Beleaguered Trinidad and Tobago Red Force struggled with the bat on the opening day of their sixth round contest against Leeward Islands Hurricanes here yesterday. Lying fifth in the six-team standings with just one win this season, Red Force failed to overcome their woes and finished the day on 161 for seven, following a delayed start at Warner Park which saw play start 1-½ hours late.Isaiah Rajah, in his first four-day appearance in two years, top-scored with 41 while Joshua DaSilva stroked 37 and veteran right-hander Jason Mohammed, 30.Fast bowler Jeremiah Louis spearheaded the attack with three for 32 while new-ball partner Sheno Berridge supported with two for 50. Bidding to turn their disastrous season around, Red Force suffered an early blow when they lost Jeremy Solozano for six with the score on seven in the sixth over of the day, steering Louis to gully where Montcin Hodge took a low catch.Left-hander Rajah then helped repair the damage, first by adding 33 for the second wicket with captain Yannick Ottley (12) and then by putting on a further 51 in a third wicket stand with Mohammed.All told, the 26-year-old Rajah faced 102 balls and struck four fours and a six before he was third out, caught low down by wicketkeeper Jahmar Hamilton diving to his left, off Berridge in the third over after tea. Ottley had earlier perished at the hands of seamer Nino Henry before the interval, slapping a rank long hop to cover.Mohammed faced 78 deliveries, counting two fours and sixes but failed to build on the start when he was bowled by Louis, offering no shot and losing his off stump.DaSilva then attempted to shepherd the middle order until he was the day’s final victim, drawn into a false stroke by Louis and taken behind by Hamilton.last_img read more

British baby Charlie Gard dies, was center of legal battle

first_imgFILE- In this file photo dated Wednesday, July 26, 2017, Connie Yates, mother of critically ill baby with a rare genetic disease Charlie Gard arrives at the Royal Court of Justice in London. British media are reporting a family announcement that 11-month old Charlie Gard, has died Friday July 28, 2017. (AP Photo/Frank Augstein, FILE) LONDON | Charlie Gard, the critically ill British baby at the center of a contentious legal battle that attracted the attention of Pope Francis and U.S. President Donald Trump, died Friday, according to a family spokeswoman. He would have turned 1 next week.Charlie suffered from a rare genetic disease, mitochondrial depletion syndrome, which caused brain damage and left him unable to breathe unaided.His parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, raised more than 1.3 million pounds ($1.7 million) to take him to the United States for an experimental medical therapy they believed could prolong his life. But Charlie’s doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London objected, saying the treatment wouldn’t help and might cause him to suffer. The dispute ended up in court.Charlie’s case became a flashpoint for debates on the rights of both children and parents, on health-care funding, medical interventions, the responsibilities of hospitals and medical workers and the role of the state.Alison Smith-Squire, a family spokeswoman, confirmed to The Associated Press that Charlie died Friday but no further details were released. In a statement, Yates was quoted as saying “our beautiful little boy has gone, we’re so proud of him.”After months of legal battles, High Court Judge Nicholas Francis ruled Thursday that Charlie should be transferred to a hospice and taken off life support after his parents and the hospital that had been treating him failed to agree on an end-of-life care plan for the infant.Under British law, it is common for courts to intervene when parents and doctors disagree on the treatment of a child. In such cases, the rights of the child take primacy over the parents’ right to decide what’s best for their offspring. The principle applies even in cases where parents have an alternative point of view, such as when religious beliefs prohibit blood transfusions.The case made it all the way to Britain’s Supreme Court as Charlie’s parents refused to accept decisions by a series of judges who backed Great Ormond Street. But the Supreme Court agreed with the lower courts, saying it was in Charlie’s best interests that he be allowed to die.The case caught the attention of Trump and the pope after the European Court of Human Rights refused to intervene. The two leaders sent tweets of support for Charlie and his parents, triggering a surge of grassroots action, including a number of U.S. right-to-life activists who flew to London to support Charlie’s parents.The hospital reported that its doctors and nurses were receiving serious threats over Charlie’s case and London police were investigating.The intervention of two of the world’s most powerful men made the case a talking point for the planet. Images of Charlie hooked to a tube while dozing peacefully in a star-flecked navy blue onesie graced websites, newspapers and television news programs.Medical ethicist Arthur Caplan said the case shows how the medical profession is struggling to adjust to the age of social media, which puts the general public in the middle of decisions that in the past would have been private issues for doctors and the family.“I do think that in an era of social media, it is possible to rally huge numbers of people to your cause,” said Caplan, of New York University’s Langone Medical Center. “The medical ethics have not caught up.”The heated commentary prompted Judge Francis to criticize the effects of social media and those “who know almost nothing about this case but who feel entitled to express opinions.”But in the end, the increased attention did little for Charlie.While offers of help from the Vatican’s Bambino Gesu children’s hospital in Rome and doctors at Columbia University Medical Center in New York were enough to reopen the case, the High Court ultimately decided the proposed treatment wouldn’t help Charlie. His parents gave up their fight on Monday after scans showed that Charlie’s muscles had deteriorated so much that the damage was irreversible.“Mummy and Daddy love you so much Charlie, we always have and we always will and we are so sorry that we couldn’t save you,” his parents wrote when they announced their decision. “We had the chance but we weren’t allowed to give you that chance.“Sweet dreams baby. Sleep tight, our beautiful little boy.” FILE – In this file photo dated Monday, July 24, 2017, Chris Gard, the father of critically ill baby Charlie Gard reads a statement next to mother Connie Yates, right, at the end of their case at the High Court in London.
