Street collectors are collecting in the Euston area of London on behalf of BEST, the Benevolent Ex-Servicemen’s Trust. The Charity Commission confirmed to ICFM that no such charity is registered with them. ICFM recommends that you inform local police if you come across any other sightings.Given Euston is just around the corner from the Directory of Social Change’s Charity Centre, which is frequented weekly by hundreds of charity staff attending training courses, let’s hope that the fraudsters get caught out by trying to fundraise from real fundraisers.

Former President Aristide’s car after attack.The Haitian cops claim, according to Jean Alix Pierre-Louis, a vice commissioner of police, they were just responding to the chaos that erupted March 20 in Port-au-Prince when a substantial crowd of Lavalas supporters of former Haitian President Jean Bertrand Aristide met a small group from the Bald-Headed Haitian Party (PTKH) of current President Jovenel Moïse.Pierre-Louis charged that there was rock throwing and use of firearms from the supporters of both Aristide and the PTKH. Another police official, Prenel Duval, admitted to the web service Haiti Hollywood that the cops fired real bullets directly at the crowd in order to disperse them.“The motorcade came under fire, and this is tantamount to an assassination attempt,” said Mario Joseph, one of Aristide’s lawyers. There are bullet holes in Aristide’s car and blood was on a headlight and the hood.Haïti-Liberté reports: “A widely diffused video of the confrontation, however, clearly shows the police shooting with leveled weapons. There are no images of Aristide’s retinue firing or even carrying weapons.” (March 20) Aristide was returning home after testifying as a witness in an investigation of a money laundering case.While president of Haiti, Aristide was forced into exile on Feb. 29, 2004, by U.S. and French mercenaries backed by imperialist interests. Aristide was granted asylum in the Central African Republic two months later until his return to Haiti in March 2011, thanks to worldwide protests inspired by the Haitians’ mass protests in the streets.Today Haiti remains the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere due to the deepening super-exploitation of its people and its resources mainly by U.S., French and Canadian corporations. These rich capitalist countries are using the ongoing United Nations occupation of troops as a cover for their oppression of the Haitian masses.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

COVID-19: “Crooks & Black Sheep Deriving Gains “: Patna High Court Asks State To Book Black Marketeers Of Oxygen, Drugs
News UpdatesCOVID-19: “Crooks & Black Sheep Deriving Gains “: Patna High Court Asks State To Book Black Marketeers Of Oxygen, Drugs Sparsh Upadhyay28 April 2021 10:41 PMShare This – xTaking up the matters relating to an alarming surge in COVID-19 cases in the State of Bihar in its second wave and reported lack of healthcare system in the State of Bihar, the Patna High Court on Wednesday (April 28) issued a slew of directions to the Bihar Government. The Bench of Justice Chakradhari Sharan Singh and Justice Mohit Kumar Shah dealt with a series of issues and accordingly issued necessary directions. Oxygen supply The State of Bihar submitted before the Court that the Central Government had allocated 194 MT of oxygen for the State of Bihar as against the request for allocation of 300 MT of oxygen. It was also submitted that with the available cryogenic tankers, an effort was being made to procure liquid oxygen. It was further stated that the number of oxygen generation plants had also increased in the State of Bihar Lastly, it was submitted that as on 26th April 2021, the State of Bihar was not deficient in terms of availability of medical oxygen for meeting the challenge arising out of COVID-19 in its second wave. However, noting that several complaints from various hospitals were received related to lack of supply of oxygen for treating COVID patients, the Court said, albeit tentatively, that it was difficult to accept this stand of State of Bihar for the reason that spike in the number of COVID cases in the State was admittedly exponential and unhindered. Further, the Court directed the Government, “To take all possible measures to procure its quota of oxygen, as allocated by the Government of India, per day so as to ensure continuous supply of oxygen in all Government and private hospitals as also to ensure that the healthcare system in the State is prepared to face the challenges in coming days.” Also noting that there was no platform made available by the State Government from where oxygen/ oxygen cylinders could be procured, the Court asked the State of Bihar to examine this aspect and inform the Court as to what steps were contemplated. Testing capacity for COVID-19 It was submitted by the State of Bihar that there were 19 RT-PCR laboratories functional in the State of Bihar and in addition, in the district of Motihari a RT-PCR laboratory has been established, validation of which by the ICMR is underway. It was also made known that once 18 proposes machines are installed in various laboratories in the State, the number of RT- PCR test per day would further increase by 8000-10000. During the hearing of the proceeding, it had emerged that the result of RT-PCR tests was not being made available soon or within a reasonable time, after the samples are taken and normally it takes more than 5-6 days for sending the outcome of such tests. The Court observed, “Identification of a person as to whether he is suffering from COVID-19 disease or not as soon as he is infected with it is crucial not only for the individual’s treatment but also to ensure that the disease is not spread among others, considering the virulent behaviour of the infection.” Further, the Additional Solicitor General for India informed the Court that a technical team had been deputed by the Central Government and was already on the job, to assess the deficiencies in the health care facilities in the State of Bihar and make suggestions. In view of this, the Court directed that the team to examine the aforesaid aspect of RT-PCR testing and availability of other confirmatory tests for COVID-19 and to inform the Court as to how the number of tests per day can be optimized and the number of days in reporting results of COVID-19 tests can be reduced, for this Court to pass appropriate orders in this regard on the next date Black-marketing of oxygen and other drugs relevant for treating COVID patients At the outset, the Court noted, “It is true that when humankind is undergoing one of the darkest periods because of an unprecedented outbreak of the pandemic, there are crooks and black sheep who attempt to derive gains through illicit means, taking advantage of the human sufferings.” Further, the Court said that if the black-marketing of oxygen/ oxygen cylinders/ drugs essential for treating COVID patients was within the knowledge of the officials of the State, the concerned officials were obligated under law to take appropriate action by the institution of cases under various statutory provisions which are in place; else they can be blamed for being party to these grave misdeeds in the wake of the challenges which the society at large is presently facing. The Court also asked as to whether the State officials have registered any case alleging black-marketing of drugs essential for treating COVID patients. The Court observed that it would be a grave failure on the part of the executive if no strict action is taken against those indulging in such misconducts, having criminal liability. Offences against healthcare personnel Regarding offences against healthcare personnel, the Court remarked, “It is about time for the State officials to take stern action against those found to be committing offences against healthcare personnel.” Regarding the shortage of beds, the Court remarked, “The shortage of COVID beds can be to some extent overcome by permitting the private hospitals to enhance number of beds for COVID treatment. Alternatively, applying the provisions of Disaster Management Act, 2005, the State Government may requisition such private hospitals and other establishments for treatment of COVID patients in case of emergency.” Considering the grave situation prevailing in the State of Bihar, the Bench has decided to take up this matter on a day-to-day basis.

Samson1976/iStockBy IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The hiker rescued after going missing during a mountain hike praised the team of doctors who revived him after his heart stopped for nearly 45 minutes.Michael Knapinski, 45, told ABC New’s Good Morning America that he’s grateful for the staff at Harborview Medical Center who saved his life after he was caught in a whiteout situation while hiking in Mount Rainier National Park in Washington state last week. Doctors said Knapinski’s heart stopped when he arrived at the hospital, and for over 45 minutes, they used CPR and other methods to get it pumping again.“I mean, there were hundreds of people looking for me and a humongous team of doctors working for me. I’m already a pretty grateful person, but this is just life-changing,” Knapinski told GMA from his hospital bed.Knapinski said he went hiking with his friend on Nov. 7; along the way, they decided to split up and explore different parts of the mountain. Knapinski, who had gone on a 15-mile hike the day before, said the weather picked up as he hiked alone and his surroundings began to get into whiteout conditions as night fell.“I couldn’t see anything down there, zero visibility, even with a headlight or anything,” he said, adding that he has no memory between getting lost and waking up in the hospital. “I don’t know what happened.”National Park crews searched the park until early into the next morning, and temperatures had already dipped to below freezing, according to park officials. A Navy search and rescue team used a helicopter the next morning to find Knapinski.Dr. Nick Johnson, the emergency medicine and critical care specialist at Harborview Medical Center, told ABC News that when Knapinski arrived at the hospital, his body was 70 degrees Fahrenheit and his heart went into an “abnormal rhythm where it stopped pumping blood to the rest of the body.”“I would say the odds were against him,” Johnson said. “We certainly see a lot of people who spend nights in a cold, but he was one of the coldest people that I’ve seen arrive at the hospital, lose their pulse, have a cardiac arrest and survive.”The hospital activated its extracorporeal membrane oxygenation or ECMO team to treat Knapinski and revive him, according to Johnson. The team put tubes into the hiker’s major blood vessels, took the blood out of his body, warmed it up, provided it with oxygen and put it back in, according to the hospital staff.“I mean, essentially, we’re just we’re faced with a patient whose brain has been shut down by the cold. And we’re hoping that we’ll be able to buy enough time to reboot the most complicated computer in the world, essentially,” Dr. Jenelle Badulak, a member of the ECMO team at Harborview Medical Center, told ABC News.Knapinski woke up two days later, much to the relief of the hospital staff, Johnson said.“We had a little telephone celebration first and then all of us have taken turns doing a socially distant mass visit just to say hello, and actually get to talk to them in person,” he said.Knapinski said he was still regaining his cognitive abilities when he woke, but was in awe when the medical professionals told him what happened and how they saved his life.“I was like, ‘Holy moly,’” he said.“A lot of the people that worked on me didn’t really expect me to recover from this,” he added. “They came through my room, introduced themselves, said, ‘Hi, I’m so-and-so, I did this for you and I did that for you.’ I’m really glad they did that because it got me a chance to think a lot of people in.”Doctors said Knapinski will have a long road to recovery, including therapy to restore his memory and cognitive ability. Knapinski said he has some frostbite, stitches and bruises throughout his body.The hiker said he plans to give back to the hospital and the community through volunteer work. As for his future in hiking, Knapinski said he’d consider hiking the mountain again under better weather conditions.“I’ll be safer next time,” he said. “I won’t split up with anybody and definitely learn from my mistake.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
