Police killings, deaths a public health issue

first_img Read Full Story Black men, compared to white men, were at a five to 19 times greater risk of a law enforcement-related death over the past 50 years, according to a study led by Nancy Krieger, professor of social epidemiology at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. She recently spoke to Voice of America about a report she published last year that has gained renewed attention in the wake of police shootings of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota, and the shootings of five white police officers in Texas. The report calls for all law enforcement-related deaths—including people killed by police as well as police killed in the line of duty—to be reported and treated as a public health issue.“We are starting with the basic principle that first you need to know what the patterns are,” Krieger said in the July 13, 2016 article, “and then you start doing the kinds of research to try to understand why.”Krieger and colleagues propose that law enforcement-related deaths be treated not just as criminal data but as a “notifiable condition,” and that they be reported to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) by public health and medical professionals and published on a weekly basis, as are a host of other conditions ranging from poisonings to pertussis to polio.last_img read more

Lara and Tendulkar roll back the years as bushfire relief fundraiser brings in millions

first_imgSACHIN Tendulkar and Brian Lara rolled back the years as Cricket Australia raised over 7.7 million Australian dollars (£3.9million) in the fundraising Bushfire Cricket Bash on Sunday.At Melbourne’s Junction Oval, a Ricky Ponting XI beat an Adam Gilchrist XI by one run, with superstar line-ups turning out in support of the relief effort.Former Australia captain Ponting made 26 from 14 balls and West Indies great Lara plundered 30 in the 10-overs-a-side match, as the Ponting XI made 104-5 from their allocation.In the reply, Gilchrist scored 17 before he was bowled by former Australian rules star Luke Hodge, before Shane Watson cracked three sixes in a nine-ball 30 and Andrew Symonds added 29.Ponting, Lara, Watson and Symonds all retired to give others a chance to shine in the charity contest, which saw bowlers including Peter Siddle, Courtney Walsh, Wasim Akram and Dan Christian come in for some uncharitable treatment from batsmen.Brett Lee’s 2-11 from two overs bucked the trend, as the former Baggy Green paceman took the wickets of Gilchrist XI stars Brad Hodge and Yuvraj Singh.Tendulkar, who was named coach of the Ponting XI, made a crowd-pleasing cameo between innings when he faced an over shared by Ellyse Perry and Annabel Sutherland.The Gilchrist XI then needed five from the final ball of their 10 overs, but ex-Aussie rules footballer Nick Riewoldt, attempting to club a six, could only scramble a three to leave his team just short on 103-6.Cricket Australia centred the match around its Big Appeal campaign, with television coverage taking the match to a large audience, and its fundraising was boosted by an online auction.At least 33 people died in Australia’s bushfire crisis, with wildlife taking the brunt and homes and large areas of land being destroyed.last_img read more

F-M, CBA football join ESM, J-D in Class A in 2020

first_imgWhat was announced earlier this year – the addition of Fayetteville-Manlius and Christian Brothers Academy to Class A football and the return of Jamesville-DeWitt – was confirmed by Thursday’s announcement of the Section III schedules for the 2020 season.F-M, CBA and J-D all join long-time member East Syracuse Minoa in the Class A ranks, while Bishop Grimes remains firmly entrenched in eight-man football for its fourth season.Among the many changes in Section III for the upcoming autumn was a longer regular season for large-school teams. Instead of seven games, Class AA, down to nine teams with the departures of F-M and CBA, will go with a nine-game schedule and just four teams will make the November playoffs. The realigned Class A includes 10 teams in two divisions. J-D, who is back after a season in the Developmental division (now Independent League), is in the American division with ESM and CBA, plus Auburn and Indian River.F-M, meanwhile, got put in the National division with Carthage, Central Square, Fulton and Whitesboro and will have just seven regular-season contests, the Hornets opening Sept. 11 against Auburn, the first of three straight home games with Central Square and Fulton to follow.A week earlier, on Sept. 4, ESM opens at Waverly and CBA takes on Rome Free Academy. The Spartans and Brothers will have eight regular-season games, but J-D will stick with seven and start its season a week later at South Jefferson. Tags: Bishop Grimes footballCBAESMF-MJ-Dcenter_img Due to the varying lengths of their respective seasons, Class A will continue to utilize an eight-team playoff format, with opening-round games Oct. 30, semifinals a week later and the finals on the second weekend in November under the new roof at the Carrier Dome.As for Bishop Grimes, it will play eight regular-season games as part of a nine-team league in eight-man football.
