Regina woman suing after tip of sons penis cut off in circumcision

first_imgREGINA — A Regina mother has filed a lawsuit alleging negligence after the tip of her baby’s penis was severed during a circumcision.In an interview, the woman says she and her husband are worried about their son’s self-esteem as he grows up. The circumcision happened last November when the boy was nine-days old. The mother has filed a statement of claim against the doctor, his business, and an unidentified intern she believes did the procedure.The woman, whom The Canadian Press is not naming to protect the identity of the child, said she and her husband took their newborn to the Victoria East Medical Clinic in Regina for the procedure.The mother is of African descent and said circumcision is part of her family’s culture.“It was already taking too long,” she said, remembering how quick the procedure had been for her older son eight years earlier. “I could hear the baby crying so much.”She said Dr. Owen Miller, the physician they understood was going to perform the circumcision, came into the waiting area and was apologetic.“He came out and he said, ‘There’s a problem. We have to call the ambulance,’” the mother recalled.The lawsuit adds, “After the botched surgery, Miller informed the plaintiff (mother) that his intern performed the surgery.”The mother said she broke down and couldn’t control her crying.“Someone just told me he was performing some practice on my baby, that’s what it sounded like,” she said. “I couldn’t even talk.”Lawyer Kolade Oladokun, who’s representing the mother, said any damages awarded in the suit could help pay for future cosmetic surgery for the boy.The boy’s father said the family doesn’t care about money.“We just want to know if our son’s going to be OK,” he said. None of the allegations has been proven in court.In an email, Miller declined to comment, but in a statement of defence filed with the court he denies acting negligently.“At the close of the procedure, it was noted that a small piece of the glans of the infant’s penis (tip) had been removed with the foreskin,” the statement reads.“Immediate steps were undertaken to treat the wound and arrangements made to transfer the infant to specialists at Regina General Hospital for further treatment.”Miller is a longtime doctor who specializes in family medicine and has no previous disciplinary history listed on the Saskatchewan College of Physicians and Surgeons website.The mother said her baby bled for hours and wailed in pain while he was in the emergency room.Photographs taken by the woman show the infant lying in a hospital bed, hooked up to machines and a tube to carry urine.She said a surgeon informed them he was too young to have the severed tip re-attached.Dr. Todd Sorokan, a pediatrician based in British Columbia, said circumcision remains a relatively common procedure in Canada, with between ten to 30 per cent of babies having it done.Saskatchewan has seen an average of about 430 circumcisions performed annually out of medical necessity in recent years. Non-medically necessary circumcisions aren’t insured by the province, so those numbers aren’t tracked.Last year, a doctor in Regina was fined more than $10,000 for not dealing appropriately with complications arising from a circumcision done in 2014.Sorokan said it’s a straightforward procedure where minor bleeding can occur, but that’s estimated to happen in only one to two cases out of 100.“It’s certainly not a good result to trim part of the glans penis (tip) along with the foreskin,” he said. “I’m happy to hear that the family went and got urgent attention.”The boy’s next followup appointment is in September. His penis is mostly functional, but is disfigured, said his mother.“It’s healed up, but it doesn’t look normal.”The mother kept the severed part of her son’s penis and stored in the freezer, she said, in case he someday has questions about his body.“I just hope this doesn’t get to that point where the boy is feeling less of himself,” she said. “We don’t know.”Stephanie Taylor, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

AsiaPacific region faces triple threat to economic development warns UN report

26 March 2009The triple threat of the global economic recession, volatile food and fuel prices, and bearing the brunt of the world’s natural disasters has hit countries in the Asia-Pacific region particularly hard, a new United Nations report warned today. With almost two-thirds of the world’s poor and half of its natural disasters, the region is at the epicentre of these crises, according to the report by the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP).The report, entitled “Addressing Triple Threats to Development,” noted that record high oil prices in 2008 of $147 dollars a barrel, in combination with hoarding and price speculation drove the price of rice – the region’s staple – up by 150 per cent, hitting the poor the hardest.At the same time, another ESCAP report showed that almost a quarter of a million people died in 2008 as a result of natural disasters in the region, representing 97 per cent of fatalities worldwide. “The converging triple threat highlights the need for a more comprehensive, inclusive approach to development,” stressed ESCAP Executive Secretary Noeleen Heyzer.“Not only is there an urgent requirement to resume economic growth, but we have to re-think where that growth takes place and whom it benefits,” added Ms. Heyzer.Prudent macroeconomic policies, implemented in reaction to the previous economic crisis which swept the region in 1997, bolstered the Asia-Pacific at the beginning of the current slump. However, that resilience started to erode, when in the fourth quarter of 2008, trade – the region’s engine of growth – moved from double digit growth to double digit declines. Among the reasons for this reversal in trade is that the region’s economy is more integrated with the rest of the world than with itself.Ms. Heyzer noted that “intra-regional trade among developing countries accounts for only 37 per cent of exports in our region, compared with NAFTA [North American Free Trade Agreement] at 51 per cent and the EU [European Union] at 68 per cent.“By strengthening our domestic markets, the region can provide a buffer to global market fluctuations and move from being crisis resilient to crisis resistant. A key component in this will be how governments use fiscal policy as a tool of development.” The Survey calls for more intra-regional trade and investment by accelerating the implementation of regional economic cooperation agreements, as well as improved basic social protection. Currently only an estimated 30 per cent of the elderly receive pensions and 20 per cent of the population have access to health-care assistance. read more

Global stocks mixed after Wall Street rebound

BEIJING — Global stock markets were mixed Thursday following Wall Street’s rebound as investors looked ahead to a speech by the U.S. Federal Reserve chairman for clues about possible interest rate cuts.Investor reaction was muted following Wednesday’s release of notes from the latest Fed meeting showing conflicting opinions about rates.Benchmarks in London and Frankfurt declined in early trading. Hong Kong closed down while Shanghai and Tokyo advanced.Investors are looking to Chairman Jerome Powell’s speech Friday for guidance about whether the Fed might cut rates at its next meeting in September. The Fed cut its key policy rate on July 31 for the first time in more than a decade, citing President Donald Trump’s tariff battle with Beijing and other possible threats to economic growth.Markets have a “high degree of policy uncertainty” ahead of Powell’s speech and U.S.-China trade talks in September, said Stephen Innes of Oanda in a report.Mixed views rates among Fed leaders are “well documented,” but the notes are a “reminder of how challenging it could be for Chair Powell to meet the market’s exceedingly dovish expectations,” said Innes.In early trading, London FTSE 100 lost 0.4% to 7173.92 and Frankfurt’s DAX shed 3 points to 11799.69. France’s CAC-40 dropped 0.2% to 5424.47.On Wall Street, futures for the S&P 500 index and the Dow Jones Average both lost 0.1%.In Asia, the Shanghai Composite Index edged up 0.1% to 2,883.44 and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng fell 0.9% to 26,046.47.Tokyo’s Nikkei 225 was 0.1% higher at 20,612.17. Sydney’s S&P-ASX 200 rose 0.3% to 6,501.08 and India’s Sensex shed 0.5% to 36868.14.Seoul’s Kospi declined 0.7% to 1,951.01. New Zealand and Taiwan were up while Southeast Asian markets declined.On Wednesday, the S&P 500 rose 0.8%. The Dow and the Nasdaq composite added 0.9%.Traders see strong quarterly results from retailers as a sign of health among consumers who account for 70% of U.S. economic growth.Target notched its biggest-ever gain, while Lowe’s had its best day in more than a year, leading a broad rally in companies that rely on consumer spending. Nordstrom, Kohl’s, Gap and other retailers closed higher.Technology companies accounted for a big share of the gains. Financial stocks rose as bond prices fell, pushing yields higher. Real estate and materials stocks lagged the rest of the market.The Trump administration has imposed a 25% tariff on $250 billion in Chinese imports. A pending 10% tariff on another $300 billion in goods would hit everything from toys to clothing and shoes that China ships to the United States. But 60% of the new tariffs wouldn’t go into effect until mid-December, and others were taken off the table altogether.ENERGY: Benchmark U.S. crude gained 23 cents to $55.91 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract lost 45 cents on Wednesday to close at $55.68. Brent crude, used to price international oils, gained 18 cents to $60.48 in London. It gained 27 cents the previous session to $60.30.CURRENCY: The dollar dropped to 106.44 yen from Wednesday’s 106.62 yen.

TD CEO bullish on US economic recovery warns Canada losing competitive edge

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Lauren Krugel, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 3, 2014 2:56 pm MDT TD CEO bullish on U.S. economic recovery, warns Canada losing competitive edge CALGARY – The CEO of TD Bank expressed a bullish view of the U.S. economic recovery on Thursday, while warning that Canada risks losing its competitive edge if small and medium businesses don’t export more of their goods.Much has changed since the onset of the financial crisis in 2008, Ed Clark told shareholders at the bank’s annual meeting in Calgary.“The big news is that the U.S. is back,” he said.“Indeed, America, which was once described as the epicentre of the global financial crisis, is now viewed as the potential growth engine of the world.”Clark listed off a number of factors that are contributing to the brighter picture south of the border. For instance, the real estate recovery is picking up steam, consumer spending is improving, America’s energy sector is booming and the U.S. is now seeing the “on-shoring” of jobs.That’s good news for a bank that has a strong U.S. presence. TD has more retail locations in the U.S. than it does in Canada — nearly 1,300 along the east coast. It opened 24 new branches last year and anticipates opening 34 more this year.There’s the opportunity to do more in that market, he told reporters following the meeting.“We know that there are a lot of upper commercial or lower corporate companies that would love to do business with us,” he said.But TD isn’t keen to get into more “sophisticated stuff” than that in the United States.“We do not want to be Goldman Sachs in the United States. We don’t think we can be Goldman Sachs there.”There’s also the opportunity for “more plain vanilla security dealer business” in the U.S.“That’s all very profitable business and that’s where we’re trying to grow.”Meanwhile, Clark said when it comes to non-commodity exports, “Canada is losing its competitive edge.”Canada’s market share of U.S. non-commodity imports has dropped by about 30 per cent over the past decade and less than 10 per cent of Canada’s small and medium-sized businesses export their wares, Clark said in his speech.In Canada, 50 companies make up 50 per cent of the country’s exports, he added.Speaking to reporters, Clark said governments need to engage more with small businesses to figure out why they aren’t exporting. As well, colleges and universities should do more to foster entrepreneurship.“We educate business people as if they’re all going to go into big bureaucracies, big corporate bureaucracies,” he said.“If we’re going to have the next generation that’s going to drive growth in Canada, we have to create more entrepreneurs and they have to be more willing to go outside of Canada for their activity.”Clark has announced he’ll retire as CEO this November. His successor will be chief operating officer Bharat Masrani, who played a key role in establishing TD’s U.S. business. read more

Emirates Airlines cancels order for 70 of Airbus troubled A350

by The Associated Press Posted Jun 11, 2014 2:04 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email PARIS – Emirates Airlines has cancelled its order for 70 Airbus A350 aircraft, a blow to the manufacturer that has seen its share price sink 4 per cent in morning trading.The A350 is intended as Airbus’ best hope for catching up in the long-haul market that is dominated by Boeing’s 777 and 787 but has been plagued by years of delays and a multibillion dollar revamp.In Wednesday’s announcement, the companies said Emirates cancelled the order after a “fleet requirement” review. The carrier is owned by the government of Dubai and is by far the largest in the Mideast.Emirates has been rapidly adding the Boeing 777 to its fleet, and last year placed an order for 150 of the planned 777x model in a deal valued at $55.6 billion.

Marking Day of Families Ban stresses growing importance of intergenerational solidarity

Supportive relationships between family members from different generations are more important now than ever before to face unemployment and other current social and economic challenges, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today, marking the International Day of Families.“Unemployment is forcing many young people, often eager for independence, to rely on their parents longer than they would have hoped. The lack of affordable and quality childcare is complicating efforts by parents in dual-earner families to combine their work and home obligations. Inadequate pensions and care for older persons demands more attention as we succeed in our goal of extending lives,” Mr. Ban said in his message for the Day, observed annually on 15 May.“These challenges make family support more important than ever – for the young person seeking a job while living with their parents, for the grandparent who relies on their children for shelter and care and for the many members of extended families who take on childcare responsibilities.”Mr. Ban stressed that family members deserve support from policy-makers, public institutions and private businesses, and he called for strengthening policies that promote intergenerational solidarity.“Evidence shows that adequate pensions and caregiver support help not only older persons but whole families,” he said. “Intergenerational programmes promoting volunteering among the young and old benefit all generations. Opportunities for people of all ages to bond revitalize whole communities.”He added that these types of initiatives also address global development priorities as they counteract inequality and exclusion and encourage active citizenship and through community-based projects.“On this International Day of Families, I call on Governments, civil society, families and individuals to support initiatives that bring people together across generations toward building a healthier world for all,” he said. read more

5 things to watch for Ohio State basketball season

Junior center Amir Williams (23) attempts a lay up during an exhibition game against Walsh Nov. 3 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 93-63.Credit: Kelly Roderick / For The LanternThe Ohio State men’s basketball season tips off Saturday against Morgan State. Here’s a look at five things The Lantern’s sports editors believe will loom largely this winter as the Buckeyes look to advance deep into the NCAA Tournament for the third year in a row.1. Does Aaron Craft continue to develop on offense?Since coming to campus in 2010, senior guard Aaron Craft has been known as a defensive force on the basketball court. In his second season with the Buckeyes in 2011-12, Craft earned Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year honors for his ability as an on-ball defender. But the difference between Craft and some of the nation’s best point guards is his inability to be a leading threat in scoring. Although Craft did average a career-high 10 points per game last season, he only averages 8.6 per contest over his career. That number that will need to increase if Ohio State hopes to achieve the lofty heights it has reached each of the last two seasons. Craft spent the offseason working on his jump shot after never shooting higher than .500 in a single season. The defensive presence will be there, but OSU needs to Craft to be a more prolific scorer to continue the program’s recent success.2. Does LaQuinton Ross step up as a leader?Junior forward LaQuinton Ross is talented — there is no denying that. Just look at what he did during OSU’s NCAA Tournament run last season. Ross averaged 15 points a game in the tournament, including hitting a game-winning 3-pointer in the Sweet Sixteen against Arizona. But now Ross will be a starter for the Buckeyes for the first time in his career, and most fans expect him to step up in a big way. Although his career scoring average is only 7.1 points per game, the flashes of brilliance last year show the dynamic that Ross could bring to the team as a big man who can hit 3-pointers. In 2012-13, Ross finished second on the team behind junior forward Sam Thompson in 3-point percentage at .389. If Ross can keep up his upward trend, expect a big season from the Jackson, Miss., native.3. How long is Thad Matta willing to wait on Amir Williams?Although he stepped in valiantly when Jared Sullinger was in foul trouble two years ago in OSU’s 77-70 Elite Eight victory over Syracuse, the junior center has not yet blossomed into his full potential. At times last year, Williams seemed finally ready to take the next step and be the dominant force down low OSU so desperately needed. But at other times, he would commit silly fouls, forcing Matta to go with a smaller lineup. Williams said at OSU Media Day Oct. 10 he has bulked up in the offseason in preparation to take more hits in the paint. But if he is unable to show he can rebound and defend consistently without fouling, don’t expect Matta to wait on him too long. Junior center Trey McDonald could see more playing time, or we could see more of the smaller lineup that the team used last year.4. Are the Buckeyes ready for another brutal Big Ten season?When it comes to college basketball, the Big Ten is the best. Although perennial powers Kentucky, Kansas and Louisville are always tough, their respective conferences do not hold the same weight as OSU’s. With the loss of Deshaun Thomas leaving scoring in question, the Buckeyes will need to defend like they always do in order to compete. OSU was 27th in scoring defense last season in the country, only giving up 59.4 points per contest. In a loaded conference, team defense like that again will be key. Any injury to a starter, particularly if it is a leader like Craft or Lenzelle Smith, Jr., could really test the depth of the team as it slugs through the Big Ten part of its schedule starting New Year’s Eve.5. Lenzelle Smith Jr.Smith has been a staple to the Buckeye starting five for two seasons already, and is nothing short of a solid player. He rebounds well for a guy who is only 6 feet 4 inches tall and is always willing to defend bigger guys in order to shut them down for OSU’s benefit. However, Smith seems hesitant to shoot the ball despite his 37.4 shooting record from beyond the arc. It is no secret the team as a whole needs to score more because of the void left by Thomas, but Smith and Craft need to be the guys who lead the charge. read more

The Week Debuts New Cover Design

first_imgThe Week quietly debuted a new cover design for its June 26th issue.The design brings the cover in line with its UK and Australian versionswhile also leveraging some of the newsstand magic the magazine hasoutside of the U.S. where it is  primarily a subscription-drivenpublication.According to U.S. publisher Jed Hartman, the English team hadinitiated a redesign to capture more single-copy sales in thatcountry’s much more dynamic newsstand environment. “Our brethren in theUK had been experimenting with different covers, which we were involvedwith as well,” he said. “They have a much higher newsstand presencethan we do. Here, we’re a more subscription-driven publication, but thenew format is more newsstand friendly. We also, as a global brand,wanted to remain uniform.”The new design drops the left “sidebar” format, instead placingcover lines across the top of the masthead where newsstand browsers aremore likely to see them. The leftover space also created an opportunityfor bigger coverline treatments. While the sidebar may have been less noticeable on the newsstand, itdid provide a specific function: It acted as an unofficial table ofcontents, which the magazine doesn’t have. “Readers tend to read TheWeek from cover to cover,” said Hartman. “Although we do like to give alittle guide to the reader and that’s what the sidebar did. So we movedthat [function] to the top of the magazine.” The magazine’s subscription-driven model can’t be overstated.Published 48 times per year, The Week has a total paid and verifiedcirc of about 516,000. Its newsstand sales average only .4percent—about 1,800 copies—according to the December 2008 publisher’sstatement with ABC.According to Hartman, the new design was a “tweak,” but asignificant one. “This was a major change. We’re a formatted magazinethat’s working, so we’re very careful about what we change,” he said,adding that it’s always better to make changes when a magazine isenjoying some success. “Tweaking a product when it’s doing well is astrategy we’d rather do than to completely overhaul it when it’s notdoing well.”last_img read more

15 Nigerians herders killed by gunmen

first_imgGunmen believed to be cattle thieves killed 15 herders in the latest bout of violence in northern Nigeria’s herding communities, police and a local official said Thursday.“Armed bandits attacked Bawon-Daji village yesterday and killed 15 people,” the police spokesman for Zamfara state, Muhammad Shehu, told AFP.His account was corroborated by a senior local government official, Gado Anka.Anka told AFP motorcycle-riding gunmen stormed the remote village in Anka district around 1:00 pm (1200GMT), shooting dead 12 residents before fleeing to a hideout in the bush.“They returned two hours later and attacked mourners during the funeral of the victims in the cemetery, killing three more and injuring several others,” he said.Rural communuties in the agrarian state are under siege from gangs who kill, loot and torching homes.This has prompted villages to form vigilante groups-which in turn are often accused of extra-judicial killings of suspected cattle thieves, prompting deadly reprisals by the gangs.It was not clear if the latest killings were as a result of reprisals.In February, dozens of people were killed when gunmen opened fire on traders and villagers at Birane, in the Zurmi area of the state.last_img read more

That includes holiday classics that aren’t available on other services. The hard part is going t0 be figuring out which one I want to watch. The paradox of choice is real, people.Let’s see, should I go for National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation? That’s a favorite. Elf will make the family happy. We could do Frozen and get sick of “Let It Go” all over again. I would do Muppet Christmas Carol, but this version doesn’t have “Love Is Gone,” so we’re better off dragging out the laserdisc player for that. Ooh! They have the best Christmas movie ever made: Die Hard. Yeah, that’s the one.Ho Ho Ho. (Screenshot from Die Hard. Via 20th Century Fox)If you’re absolutely sick of the holidays at this point and just want to watch a normal movie, there’s plenty of those available too. They have Event Horizon if you’re looking for the exact opposite of a holiday film. There are even a few newer releases like Suicide Squad, Star Trek Beyond, and Ghostbusters. Don’t believe the haters; that movie was fantastic.You can get a 99 cent movie rental by entering the code MOVIE99 at checkout. The deal lasts through January 23rd but remember: You can only use it once.Google Play has a 99 cent rental deal too.

He reflected on the 2018 season which saw Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd invest in the ultra-luxury cruise company.Martinoli admitted that the arrangement with Royal Caribbean had involved “very demanding negotiations” over a window of more than 12 months. But once finalised, he said the “serious business” discussions were able to be undertaken.“The good thing is the first question I had from Richard Fain, the Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean, was ‘What can we do better at Silversea? Do you have [a] wishlist?‘ And of course my wishlist was very long, and I was expecting a negotiation on that. And when I presented the list of product enhancement that we’re hoping for, he said ‘Yes, that’s fine. Go ahead.’ So we started the ‘Invictus’ project that has brought a very important product enhancement to all of our fleet.”Between now and 2023, Silversea will be adding five newbuild ships, a “sizeable increase in our capacity, and enlarging even further the number of destinations that we are already visiting,” Martinoli said, adding that Australia is a “very important market”.“We are very close to making Australia our second largest source market, and hopefully this will happen very soon. Adam Armstrong, I am sure, will want to have this sooner rather than later, so we are very excited about being here,” he added.Without detailing exact figures, Armstrong himself said Australia was “not very far off” becoming the second biggest market for Silversea, with the goal to achieve the position in the next two to three years.“We are going to do that with Muse and with Silver Explorer, and we are going to do that by sending more Australians on all of our ships around the world,” Armstrong said.Joining Marinoli was Barbara Muckermann, CMO, attending from Monaco. They gathered to welcome friends and travel partners of Silversea to the magnificent vessel. Stephen Mahoney, GM Destination NSW, received a print of a 1744 RGS map of Australia surveyed by Abel Tasman by Emanuel Bowen, considered to be the first map published in England wholly devoted to Australia. The gift to Destination NSW was presented by Silversea Cruises and its partner, the Royal Geographical Society.Destination NSW General Manager Stephen Mahoney receiving a 1744 RGS map of AustraliaThe ship offers uncompromising levels of comfort, service and quality for the world’s most discerning travellers.
