Considering his plea, the court noted that the first bail application was dismissed with an observation that the accused can file a fresh petition for bail once he is removed from the hospital to the jail.”After dismissal of the earlier petition, there is admittedly a change of circumstance as far as the health condition of the petitioner is concerned. As far as the contents in ground (H) of the bail application and the certificates produced by the petitioner, the State Attorney submitted that there is no dispute on that. If that is the case, I think the petitioner can be released on medical ground with stringent conditions. There can be a direction that the petitioner shall not leave the jurisdictional limit of Ernakulam district along with other conditions”, Justice PV Kunhikrishnan observed.The court has also imposed several conditions.Ebrahim Kunju was arrested by the Vigilance and Anti Corruption Bureau on November 26. A vigilance court had earlier dismissed the bail plea filed by former minister V K Ebrahim Kunju, arrested by the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau (VACB) in a flyover scam case. The Muvattupuzha Vigilance court also dismissed a vigilance application seeking his custody but permitted the agency to question the ailing former minister few hours a day at a private hospital in Kochi where he is admitted for treatment of cancer.

Carr Fire in Northern California 20 percent contained

first_imgJustin Sullivan/Getty Images(REDDING, Calif.) — Firefighters are making progress in battling a deadly wildfire in Northern California that’s leveled hundreds of homes and forced thousands of residents to flee the area.The Carr Fire was about 20 percent contained as of late Monday afternoon, up from about 17 percent on Sunday, as fire crews raced to smother the massive blaze before the weather turned against them.At least six people have died and more than 950 homes and buildings have been destroyed since the fire ignited last week, fire officials saidAmong the dead were two firefighters and a 70-year-old woman and her two great-grandchildren, who died when the fire swept through their home in Redding, California. The sixth victim, who was not identified, did not evacuate despite receiving a warning, authorities said.The National Weather Service had forecast more hot and dry conditions for Monday, along with high wind gusts a day after crews battled in difficult conditions.“Extreme fire conditions continued today while Firefighters worked to build control lines,” Cal Fire said in a statement on Sunday. “Shifting winds, dry fuels and steep drainages contributed to rapid growth.”The fire, ignited by a vehicle on July 23, has scorched 98,724 acres of land, destroying 723 homes and damaging another 159, officials said Monday. Three commercial structures and 240 outbuildings were destroyed.Tens of thousands were ordered to evacuate, with four local centers opened to handle the inflows.Nearly 3,400 firefighters are battling the blaze from the ground and in the air, as officials have deployed 17 helicopters, 334 fire engines, 68 bulldozers and 65 water tenders.The Carr Fire was one several uncontained wildfires raging in California as the state deals with brutal temperatures and dry conditions.Another large fire, dubbed the Ferguson Fire, has killed two people, both firefighters, and burned more than 54,481 acres in Mariposa County, California, near Yosemite National Park, authorities said. That fire was about 30 percent contained as of late Sunday.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Initiative brings millions of meals to children in need in rural areas

first_imgABC NewsBy WILL CARR, ENJOLI FRANCIS, and GINA SUNSERI, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — Before her family started receiving boxes of food from the Meals-to-You initiative, Julie Estes-Gibbs said she was forced to drive to six different stores in her rural Mabank, Texas, community just to get the basics she needed to feed her family.“I’ve got six kiddos. … And there’s five growing boys so they like to eat a lot,” she told ABC News on Thursday. “We weren’t able to get eggs at the grocery store. We weren’t able to get more than a gallon of milk at the grocery store and that lasts about a day with this many kids. And several other families that I’ve talked to, that, you know, we go to school with and stuff, that are large families that were battling the same thing, we were communicating with each other about where to go to get what you needed because we were having to go all over to find it.”Thursday’s unemployment numbers highlight what many families, like the Estes Gibbs’, already know: Millions of Americans are suffering the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Last week, just shy of 3 million people filed for unemployment, bringing the total number since the coronavirus crisis began to 36.5 million Americans — by far the biggest loss in U.S. history.And as the job losses have climbed, so has the need for food, particularly as meat production has plummeted, farmers have turned to throwing out product due to lack of demand and grocery stores have started rationing items and raising prices.Estes Gibbs, a teacher, said the food shortage in her area amid the COVID-19 pandemic brought out the family’s creative side: She bought and started to raise her own chickens.“I go through five dozen eggs a week so I resorted to getting my own chickens that are already laying and the kids take care of those. That’s a project for them. They really love it,” she said. “But, if I didn’t have those resources at hand, then what would I do?”She’s also getting much-needed help from a program called Meals-to-You program, which is being spearheaded by Baylor University and the USDA.The program started before the pandemic in 2019 to help feed children in rural America. With the help of the federal CARES Act, the program was significantly scaled up.Inside a McLane Global warehouse in Houston, Texas, there are stacks of foods including juice boxes, cereals, etc. that are packaged and are sent to provide millions of meals to families across the U.S. every week.“We can put together 5 million meals,” said Todd Avery, McLane’s CEO.Denton McLane, the chairman, said the program is expected to reach about 500,000 children. It had originally fed 4,000 children.Each box that is shipped out is packed with 20 meals, loaded onto UPS trucks and sent to 38 states and Puerto Rico.“It’s like Christmas morning. They’re all anxious to see what they’re going to get. And then, we sort it into stockpiles and then organize it in the pantry and baskets,” Estes Gibbs said.Estes Gibbs, whose husband is still working as a truck driver, said her shipment contained about two weeks’ worth of food for the family. Thursday’s shipment contained crackers, milk, grapes, juice and oranges.“It’s an amazing gift,” she said. “This is making a huge difference and I hope that this program continues for our community in the years to come. … It’s a game-changer. … Now I’m not having to spend the majority of my time going to six different grocery stores to find what I need. This program has been a huge blessing for our families.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Needs assessment is key to good practice

first_imgNeeds assessment is key to good practiceOn 1 Dec 2000 in Clinical governance, Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. How should occupational health nurses be addressing the key healthinequalities in the wrokplace?This thorny problem was the subject of the keynote speech given by CarolBannister, national adviser in occupational health at the Royal College ofNursing. Bannister’s address pulled no punches. “We hoped there would be aminister here, but they were frightened away,” was her opening remark. On the subject of the public health agenda, however, there was someback-handed praise for the current ministerial agenda. “In the past fouryears, whatever our politics are, occupational health as an issue has beenraised high on the government agenda. I’m amazed at the amount of informationand challenge to occupational health nurses this government has provoked,”she said. Bannister conducted a survey of the key government policy documents andtheir effects on the different parts of the UK. She pointed out that members ofthe profession were working to improve government policies to take account ofoccupational health issues but that it was hard to make change happen withoutmassive lobbying support from the profession. “We are pressing hard for all OH services to be audited and to lookseriously at clinical governance,” she said. “There are nationalstandards on occupational health and you need to be clued up on them. If youare not meeting NICE standards then you are falling short of best practice andcould be sued, or audited,” she warned. Bannister’s message was that nurses need to review their service to see ifit is meeting the new policy agenda. That means developing a needs-assessmentapproach to practice. “The whole of nursing is moving to acompetence-based model, and you may be seeing your re-registration linked toit,” she said.
