first_imgSunday Star Times 10 Feb 2013There are  growing calls for women to be able to buy the contraceptive pill over the counter. Thousands of women face the costly chore of visiting their GP for a pill generally considered safe by health professionals. Pharmacists already provide the morning-after pill without prescription, leading some women to ask why this could not be extended to the oral contraceptive pill. Even conservative lobby group Family First does not object to the idea, though it said a line should be drawn, barring teenagers from being granted easier access to birth control. Currently women must return to a GP every six months for a prescription for the birth control pill.…. Taranaki DHB is due to make a decision this month on whether the morning-after pill should be available at pharmacies to girls as young as 12. Family First national director Bob McCoskrie slammed the idea as “morally bankrupt” and medically flawed. He also came out swinging against the idea of offering teenagers the oral contraceptive over the counter, but did not object to easier access for adults. “The issue is not contraception per se. The issue is making it free to teenagers without parental permission.”http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/8283585/Calls-for-pill-to-be-over-the-counterlast_img read more

Share Tweetcenter_img Share Clico policyholders will get another day in court on February 1.PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad and Tobago, Thursday January 12, 2012 – Yesterday (December 11) a group of CLICO policyholders went again before the court to challenge government’s refusal to pay them the full amount due on their Executive Flexible Premium Annuities (EFPA). When the United Policyholders Group and four other applicants went before the Port-of-Spain High Court yesterday, they were granted a judicial review application to challenging the state’s refusal to act on a promise to pay CLICO EFPA holders’ their full sum is expected to be heard on February 1.The policyholders, represented by attorney Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj and Peter Knob, QC, had prior to the court hearing held a meeting at Centre Pointe Mall in Chaguanas, in which Maharaj had said he was optimistic that ruling will be made in the policyholders’ favour.They were seeking an interim court order that Government give details of the assets of CLICO which has been sold and how the proceeds of the sales were applied. Maharaj said the lawsuit also sought to compel Government to give details of the EFPA policyholders who have been paid in full since January 2009.Maharaj said he hoped the matter should be resolved by March. “The EFPA policyholders are very upbeat. They want to get their full compensation but they have indicated if the government decides to enter into discussions to resolve the matter, they are prepared to give and take so the government can get some concessions from the EFPA policyholders.”The matter was heard in the Hall of Justice, Port of Spain, where Justice Joan Charles, who is presiding over the matter, ordered that all submissions be filed by January 27.

first_img Nowell’s experience at full-back should bolster England’s positional play in the back three, with Bath’s Anthony Watson also as comfortable at 15 as on the wing. Ireland’s confident march to nine consecutive victories since their 13-10 defeat to England in last year’s Six Nations has been built entirely around supreme tactical nous. Half-backs Conor Murray and Johnny Sexton seize territory first, then seek to dictate the tempo: Nowell’s inclusion is a clear bid to counter the Irish’s kicking-game acumen. Zebo believes England will not suffer for the loss of Brown, who was voted last year’s Six Nations player of the tournament. “I don’t think it will weaken them, to be honest,” Zebo said. “The two guys who are coming in are quality operators and have played a lot at the highest level as well. “I don’t think it will take away from their back three. “The threats of pace, aerial ability and finishing are all still there, so we’ll have to be on top of our game to nullify their attack.” Press Association Munster wing Zebo has warned Ireland to guard against Goode’s ability to join the line as an auxiliary playmaker when Joe Schmidt’s side take on England in Dublin on Sunday. Saracens full-back Goode will replace Brown in England’s last line of defence, after the Harlequins flyer failed to recover from concussion suffered in 47-17 victory over Italy. Alex Goode will spearhead England’s counter-attack threat and ease the loss of Mike Brown for the pivotal RBS 6 Nations showdown with Ireland, according to Simon Zebo. Ireland are fully expected to bombard England’s re-jigged back three with an aerial assault in the Aviva Stadium Grand Slam eliminator, but Zebo remains wary of Goode’s attacking qualities. “We’ve played Saracens a lot in the past couple of years, and he has probably some of the best footwork I’ve ever seen attacking the line at pace and still being able to change direction,” Zebo said of Goode. “It’s a very exciting back three for them, and we know how dangerous they are, so Alex Goode, his counter-attacking ability will probably lead the line for them. “So we’ll be doing well to keep him quiet. “I suppose it’s a big blow to lose Mike Brown in one way, but Alex Goode is a top-quality player if he comes in. “We’ve seen his attacking ability and prowess at full-back at Heineken Cup-level consistently, so for him to come in, in our opinion as a back-three player, he doesn’t take away anything from their threats out wide.” England boss Stuart Lancaster has dropped Jonny May as expected, after the Gloucester speedster botched a straightforward try-scoring opportunity against Italy. Exeter’s Jack Nowell is primed for his first Test action in a year after recovering from long-term knee trouble and regaining top club form. last_img read more
