Hertel among prosecutors to attend ‘Opioid Summit’

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — County prosecutors from all over the state were in attendance on July 25 for the Indiana Court system’s statewide substance abuse summit. The Indiana Supreme Court invited county leaders and stakeholders to attend the summit, from prosecutors and judges to law enforcement officials and doctors. All 92 counties in the state were represented in some capacity at the event. Attendance by numerous prosecutors shows a commitment to confronting the state’s ongoing substance abuse problem and learning best practices for how to deal with and treat people struggling with addiction.“As a prosecuting attorney, public safety is paramount and if there is an opportunity to make our communities safer we have a responsibility to explore those options,” said Ric Hertel, Ripley County prosecutor. “It was encouraging to see the varied disciplines come together with like goals in mind.”Attendees heard in-depth discussions about Medication Assisted Treatment to help combat the cravings and withdrawals of substance abuse. Medication Assisted Treatment must have proper assessments and protocols in place to avoid diversion and misuse of these medicines. Careful monitoring and accountability is a must for these programs to be successful.Whether it is opioids or some other abused drug, every county in Indiana has felt a strain due to substance abuse. Pat Harrington, prosecutor for Tippecanoe County, said the effects of the ongoing drug crisis is manifesting itself in his office via loaded court dockets dealing with drug issues.“Across the state, everyone is loaded down with drug cases, we don’t have enough people in our office,” Harrington said. “And I’m hearing that from everyone I’ve talked to.”The hope with a carefully and competently monitored Medication Assisted Treatment is that people regularly taking medication to suppress the urge to abuse drugs may be less likely to re-offend or overdose. Often it takes up to two years for the brain to heal from the damage caused by substance abuse. Fewer people going through the justice system will give some relief to courts, attorneys and local jails. Most importantly it will make Indiana healthier and safer.last_img read more

Martin: Laila Ali Would ‘Smoke’ Claressa Shields

first_img Martin, who admits she “talked a lot of shit” during her own ring career, is at pains to point out how she would do so with a smile on her face, with a funny quip following the trash-talk. Martin says Shields – who in her opinion “cannot fight going backward” and has a low KO percentage with just 2 stoppage wins on her record – “just wants to be a tough guy.” Shields has fired back, saying how Martin “boxed against strippers and ballroom dancers to skyrocket her career,” and she apparently has no appreciation for the path Martin pave for her and other female fighters. But what about that possible (though probably not too likely) Shields Vs. Ali fight? If it did happen who would win? Is Martin right, or would Shields, active, around her peak and unbeaten, prove too much for “She Bee Stingin’?” read also:Ali Jeje’s Mother gets Minister’s palliative As for who the best current female fighter in the world is, Martin says Katie Taylor probably deserves the distinction. There was a time when practically everyone turned up their nose at female boxing. Thanks must go out to Christy Martin for this no longer being the case. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Martin, when she was 14 years into her ring career, was stopped in four rounds by Ali, and even today Martin feels the daughter of “The Greatest” would be way too much for current champ Claressa Shields. As fans may know, Shields, unbeaten and a three-weight world champ, and Ali, retired for well over a decade, have been going at each other via social media and on TV chat shows, each claiming they would defeat the other. Ali never lost during her career, while Shields is for many the best female fighter in the world right now. If the money was there, and if Ali agreed to end her retirement at age 42, Shields Vs. Ali could prove to be a big deal. “I think Laila smokes her. It takes her now six or seven rounds whereas back when she fought me it would probably take her the same amount of time that she got rid of me. At least that fast, if not faster,” Martin, now a boxing promoter, said. “I think Claressa is very full of herself. Why somebody doesn’t talk to her and say ‘Look, say some positive things once in a while, be a little nicer.’ A quote from her was, boxing doesn’t deserve her, are you freaking kidding me? Like she’s gonna go to the UFC, good, go over there, they’re gonna smoke your ass over there.”Advertisement Long before Claressa Shields, even before Laila Ali, Christy Martin was the trailblazer; the female fighter who was a star allowing a number of other female boxers to get in there and do their thing.

Aubameyang close to signing new three-year Arsenal deal

first_imgArsenal skipper, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, is almost set to sign a new contract that is expected to take him to another three-year journey with the FA Cup winners. The new contract that Arsenal have offered will run until 2023, covering final 12 months on the existing deal and extending it by further two years According to the Telegraph Sport, talks have advanced to the stage where Arsenal are now drawing up the final proposal for Aubameyang to sign, following a positive round of talks in which verbal promises were made. As long as Aubameyang, his representatives and his lawyers do not find any problems in the contract or differences from what has been discussed, then it is expected he will sign the contract and commit himself to the Emirates. The new contract that Arsenal have offered would run until 2023, covering the final 12 months he has on his existing deal and extending it by a further two years. It is likely to be worth in excess of £250,000 a week and include lucrative bonuses. While the £350,000 a week earned by Mesut Ozil has again come under scrutiny following Arsenal’s decision to make 55 redundancies of club staff, there have been widespread calls for the Gunners to find an agreement with their star man Aubameyang. Other than being offered a pay rise, Aubameyang has also received encouragement that Arteta will be allowed to strengthen his squad sufficiently this summer to try to challenge for a top-four place next season. Willian is expected to join on a free transfer from Chelsea, having been offered a three-year contract with the option of a further 12 months, while Arsenal are also tracking Lille central defender Gabriel Margalhaes and want a central midfielder, having already enquired about Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid. Philippe Coutinho has been offered to Arsenal, who are not currently pursuing a deal for the Barcelona midfielder but it remains to be seen whether or not they show interest later in the window with the Spanish club hoping to offload him. read also:Aubameyang offered £300,000-a-week Arteta will undoubtedly have to sell players to help finance the incoming business he wants to do and Hector Bellerin could be a surprise departure if Arsenal receive a bid for the right-back. Bellerin is believed to be keen on the prospect of a new challenge, having spent nine years at the club after joining from Barcelona. The scout who helped to bring him to England, Francis Cagigao, is the most high-profile of Arsenal’s redundancies. Alexandre Lacazette is another first-team player Arsenal may listen to offers for, while out-of-favour midfielder Matteo Guendouzi can leave. Questions have been raised over whether or not Arsenal should be spending money in the transfer market while making redundancies and there has been surprise among the squad over the announcement. Some club employees have also questioned why director Josh Kroenke, who is largely responsible for the running of the club, did not make sure he was in the country when the announcement was made to deal with the anticipated fallout. Arsenal players believed that they were helping to protect the jobs of club staff by agreeing to take a 12.5 percent pay cut during the coronavirus lockdown. Those players will get some of that money back, with the cut dropping to 7.5 percent for qualifying for the Europa League, and there is a disappointment that winning the FA Cup did not help to protect jobs. The club believes they would have been forced to make more redundancies had the players not taken a wage cut and also hope they will now be able to deal with any further financial impact that could follow as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Following postponement due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Paralympics are now scheduled to take place in the Japanese capital from August 24 to September 5 in 2021. It is still uncertain whether the Games will take place next year, given the global health crisis, but Koike claimed the competition could be a “symbol of humankind.” “The Para-athletes, who have overcome a range of difficulties, are truly looking forward to demonstrating the incredible skills they acquired through extensive training for the Games,” she said. “The people of the world are also waiting to witness the Paralympic Games. “In order to respond to everyone’s hopes, we will first devote all of our efforts to winning the fight against an invisible enemy – the novel coronavirus. “We will work closely with all parties concerned and advance preparations to hold a successful Games brimming with hope, which will serve as a symbol of humankind bonding even more strongly as the world came together as one to overcome this difficult situation.” The Tokyo Metropolitan Government began celebrations marking one year to go earlier this week. Six buildings in the city were lit up in the Paralympic colours of red, blue and green to support athletes preparing for the Games today, including the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium, Tokyo Stadium, Ariake Arena, Tokyo Aquatics Centre, Olympic Tower in Komazawa Olympic Park and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government No. 1 Building. Posters of each Paralympic sport drawn by popular manga artists will also be displayed at the Tokyo Metropolitan Government No. 1 Building. The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) celebrated the occasion by launching #WaitForTheGreats, a campaign that will run until September 6 and include a range of engaging content. A television advert featuring American Paralympic 100 metre champion David Brown and his guide Jerome Avery has been released as part of the campaign. Other #WaitForTheGreats activities are set to include a 24-hour Instagram Live relay, Twitter polls to determine the greatest Paralympic moment, and a musical performance to bring the campaign to a close next month. The launch of #WaitForTheGreats has been complemented by the release of Rising Phoenix, the Netflix movie about the Paralympic Movement.center_img Coronavirus countermeasures are viewed as key to the Games taking place next year following their postponement. Tokyo 2020 President Yoshirō Mori today assured that organisers were still working on such countermeasures. “I am convinced that one year from today, the performances of Para-athletes from around the globe will have special value as a symbol of solidarity, and a demonstration of human strength and the power to persevere,” Mori said. “Furthermore, we have made steady progress in ensuring that Games venues will be accessible to all. “I believe that as numerous athletes, spectators, and officials experience such an environment firsthand it will serve as an important step forward in building an inclusive society. “We will continue to work closely with the national government, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and other related organisations in all aspects of preparations, including COVID-19 countermeasures, as we work to deliver a safe and secure Games.” read also:Olympics boss reluctant to hold Tokyo Games behind closed doors Paralympics Australia is among the National Paralympic Committees to be preparing for Tokyo 2020, with the organisation currently formulating contingencies for multiple scenarios to ensure the safety and success of competitors and staff at the Games. Kate McLoughlin, Australia’s Chef de Mission, revealed she was working with counterparts in Britain, New Zealand and Canada to share information. “A problem shared is a problem halved,” she said. “There’s no competitive advantage to be gained by not sharing information with other countries around how we’re going to approach the Games within the COVID-19 environment. “We all realise we have to think outside the box. “Everything we’re doing is focused around giving our athletes the best possible performance environment and ensuring their health and safety is well looked after.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more

Everton future looking bleak for Alex Iwobi

first_img Loading… Marco Silva, the manager who recruited him, was already in the dying throes of his miserable tenure, and Iwobi found himself added to a disjointed team who already appeared to be losing faith in their head coach. The midfield, unbalanced since the exit of Idrissa Gueye, lacked control, destabilising the whole side, and the horrific November injury to Andre Gomes was yet another blow to an already troubled area of the side. The arrivals of Allan and Doucoure threaten to solve a problem area, which could have meant an upturn in fortunes for Iwobi, so often feeding off scraps last season, but the arrival of James from Real Madrid—and accompanying shift information—threatens to reduce him to irrelevance. Everton’s own malaise exacerbated some of the issues Iwobi had already endured at Arsenal, where he had sometimes struggled to find his place in the team under Unai Emery. No one could question his fitness, work rate, or movement, but what exactly had Iwobi been signed to contribute? He doesn’t have the pace of a winger, doesn’t have the creativity of a No. 10…what exactly was his purpose? “Iwobi doesn’t do it for me,” former England and Spurs striker Darren Bent told Football Insider. “His end product’s not good enough, he doesn’t score enough goals, doesn’t create enough goals so he’s not really doing anything.” Damning words, but few Everton fans would disagree at this stage. While it’s easy to say he needs a fresh start—a move to Crystal Palace has been mooted—would a switch to playing alongside ‘lesser’ players expose Iwobi’s own limitations, which were perhaps masked at the Emirates Stadium. The likes of Bolasie, Besic, Sandro and Cenk Tosun; and even Bernard, Sigurdsson, Kean and Fabian Delph face uncertain futures under Ancelotti. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 These are exciting new times at Everton, but not, it appears, for 2019 signing Alex Iwobi, who is increasingly looking bound for the exit doors at Goodison Park. Carlo Ancelotti invested in James Rodriguez, Allan, and Abdoulaye Doucoure during the summer, a raft of new arrivals who underpinned the Toffees’ successful start to the Premier League on Sunday as Tottenham Hotspur were defeated 1-0 on Sunday. Everton were outstanding in North London, and followed that up by cruising past Salford City in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening. Ancelotti gave his second-string a run-out, with only Michael Keane retained from the Spurs victory, giving hope to the likes of Theo Walcott and Moise Kean—both omitted from the starting XI against Tottenham—that they remain in his plans. Iwobi, however, despite appearing to be fit and available, didn’t make the matchday squad for a second consecutive game. It wasn’t that he failed to make the team, but he failed to make the coach’s 18 on the day. Here is a player who increasingly appears to be surplus to requirements under Ancelotti. It’s a remarkable fall from grace for a player who cost the club £34 million just last summer, but he’s now in danger of finding himself among the Merseysiders’ other outcasts, alongside the likes of Yannick Bolasie, Muhamed Besic and Sandro Ramirez. After not being linked with a move away from the club for the majority of the brief offseason, the rumours have begun to fly around that Iwobi is destined for an imminent exit from Finch Farm. According to the Daily Mirror, he’s one of several fringe players who could be offloaded by Director of Football Marcel Brands as he looks to balance the books. There has been plenty of poor transfer decisions over the last few years at the club, and in the context of some of their other flops—Davy Klaassen, anyone?—the the arrival of Iwobi hasn’t (yet) been an emphatic failure. Admittedly, he struggled to make his mark last season, registering a risible return of one goal and zero assists, but there were caveats, not least a season of transition and turmoil at Goodison Park.center_img Promoted ContentThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.
