TORONTO – The family of an 81-year-old Toronto man in need of a kidney transplant has taken to putting up flyers pleading for a donor with the hope someone will step forward.The efforts of Marcel Rozen’s wife, who posted the notices on message boards around the city, have highlighted the difficulties faced by thousands of Canadians waiting for a kidney transplant.“I’m on a waiting list, but how long do you wait? That’s the question,” Rozen said in an interview. “It’s very hard. And I’m not a young kid either, so that doesn’t help”Rozen’s kidneys function at 5 per cent or less of their normal capacity. Every night for nearly three years, he has hooked himself up to a dialysis machine that, over the course of nine hours, cycles eight litres of medical fluid through his body.“You don’t sleep that well,” he said. “Sometimes when it drains the liquid from your body it starts to hurt, so even when you sleep you wake up.”Rozen will remain on dialysis until he can get a transplant, he said, but doctors told him when he began his nightly treatments that it could take up to eight years to get a new kidney.There are currently over 1,000 people in Ontario waiting for a kidney, the Ministry of Health said.Each of them will spend, on average, four years waiting for a transplant. In 2017 alone, 37 Ontarians died while on the waiting list for a kidney, the ministry said.“Priority for patients on the wait list is based on medical urgency, blood type and … DNA type matching and wait times,” ministry spokesman David Jensen said.In Ontario, a deceased donor’s kidneys are matched to a patient on the waiting list by the Gift of Life Network, the province’s organ and tissue donation agency.“One kidney (from each deceased donor) is allocated to patients in the transplant program within the donor’s region first and, if no match is found, the kidney is then allocated to a patient listed at another provincial transplant program,” Jensen explained. “The other kidney is shared nationally for specific patients first and, if no match is found, the kidney is allocated to a patient at a provincial transplant program.”Advocates say the greatest challenge facing Canadians in need of a kidney transplant is an overwhelming lack of available donors.“The need for organs, in particular kidneys, outpaces the supply,” said Elizabeth Myles, national executive director of the Kidney Foundation of Canada.There were over 3,400 Canadians on the kidney waiting list in 2016, but only about 1,730 transplants performed that year, she said.“Our pool for available kidneys is through a deceased donor, somebody who has registered to donate their organs after they have passed away, (but) only about three per cent of deaths qualify for organ transplant,” Myles said.“And then there’s the living donors … but that is certainly not a decision that somebody would make lightly. The kidney is a complicated part of your larger body so there is a lot of challenges or steps one needs to go to.”Patients often have a loved one willing to donate a kidney, but they may not be a match, said Myles.Canadian Blood Services runs a kidney “exchange” program, however, that connects mismatched pairs of donors and recipients with people they do match with.For instance, if someone wants to donate a kidney to their partner but they are not a match, Blood Services will connect the couple with another set of donor-recipient candidates who don’t match each other but could benefit from the partner’s kidney.This donation chain can include several pairs of people exchanging kidneys, Myles said.In Rozen’s case, doctors have ruled out his wife and his brother-in-law as potential donors because they are not healthy enough to survive with only one kidney, Rozen said.“Everybody else in my family, most of them are dead so I just don’t have anybody else,” he said.Rozen’s wife, Julia, has consequently taken on the search for a donor, posting flyers around Toronto asking for help.She was inspired by a recent story about a New Jersey man who went to Disneyworld wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with his phone number and the words, “In need of kidney O Positive.” Photos of the man were shared on social media and, ultimately, led to him finding a donor, the Washington Post reported.“She said, ‘well if he can do it, I can do something similar,’” Rozen said, noting that his family has since received six or seven calls from people who want to help but have yet to be approved for donation by a doctor.“What is going to happen to me tomorrow or the next day? I don’t know,” he said. “You just hope for the best.”— With files from Nicole Thompson

New Delhi: The Ministry of Home Affairs Friday said it has not asked the Assam government to conduct any inquiry against some editors in the state who have opposed the Citizenship Amendment Bill, terming the information as “absolutely baseless” and “mischievous”.In a statement, the ministry said it has been reported in a section of media that the MHA has asked the Assam government to take action against some editors opposed to the Citizenship Bill. “This is absolutely baseless and a mischievous interpretation of facts. This is to clarify that the Union home ministry has not asked the government of Assam to initiate any enquiry against any editor or member of the press/media,” it said.

Rabat – The Spanish judge who had originally decided genocide charges for several current and former Moroccan officials in connection with alleged ethnic-cleansing crimes in the Moroccan territory of Western Sahara has been replaced by another judge, El Pais reported. The judge, Pablo Ruz, upheld last week charges against 11 Moroccan officials he accused of “killings and torture” in the Western Sahara from 1976 to 1991.He was reportedly replaced by another judge named Jose de la Mata as the new head of the Central Court of Instruction (Juzgado Central de Instrucción No.5) of the Audiencia Nacional, a special and exceptional high court in Spain. The Moroccan government expressed “astonishment” over the judge’s decision that Moroccan former officials should stand trial on genocide charges in a statement on Saturday.Morocco’s foreign minister Salaheddine Mezouar downplayed the recent adverse development in a meeting with his Spanish counterpart, Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo.“Morocco will defend itself with legality and veracity,” he said. “Those who are always trying to create problems between our countries are wasting their time.”In 2008, Pablo Ruz was appointed to Spain’s central court, the Audiencia Nacional, on a temporary basis. In 2010, he was re-appointed, filling the vacancy left by Baltasar Garzon.
“The rapidly evolving and transnational threat from ISIL presents a difficult challenge for Member States and the international community,” said Vladimir Voronkov, the head of the UN Counter-Terrorism Office at a Security Council meeting,on threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts.“ISIL is no longer focused on conquering and holding territory. It has been forced to adapt and focus primarily on a smaller and more motivated group of individuals who remain committed to inspiring, enabling and carrying out attacks,” he added.Countering the changing threat implies the “need to stay one step ahead of ISIL” as it continues to adapt and evolve, stressed the UN official.In particular, Mr. Voronkov called for a strong international framework to counter the threat from ISIL through the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy as well as relevant General Assembly and Security Council resolutions, as well as effective implementation of existing multilateral tools and legal instruments, conventions and protocols.Addressing the ISIL threat also requires addressing its underlying conditions which sway young men and women towards violent extremism, he added.He also urged the international community to address the “deficit” in counter-terrorism cooperation at the global, regional and national levels and called on countries to engage fully at the first ever UN Summit of Heads of Counter-Terrorism Agencies (to be held in June.)The UN official informed the 15-member council of the evolving activities of ISIL and its affiliates in different parts of the world, including efforts to fund its illicit activities and spread propaganda.He also warned that ISIL members and its sympathizers continue to abuse social media, as well as technology such as encryption methods and communication tools within the dark web, to communicate, coordinate and facilitate their activities and perpetrate attacks.
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A woman who wanted to work as a hairdresser applied for a licence at an Athens municipality in September 2011. The license was not issued until 2013 and only after the intervention of the Ombudsman, who had to appeal to the municipality and two ministries to get the job done. The reasons why something so simple became so complicated are well known to Greeks; foot-dragging, indifference, red tape and poor management.There are plenty of similarly ludicrous tales to be found in the annual report of the Greek Ombudsman. Some make you want to laugh and others cry, while in many cases the Ombudsman has had to step in and act as arbitrator to cover the gap when state institutions simply could not deliver the services required by citizens.How easy, however, is it for citizens to gain access to the authorities and institutions whose job it is to protect their rights and interests? This was the focus of an 18-month study conducted for the Ombudsman by a team of scientists. The findings are enlightening and reveal a political culture that needs to change radically, as well as an interesting reading of Greek society.The main conclusion that arises from the study is the lack of access certain population groups have to independent authorities.“Although technically they have the right, they have no recourse to what we call ‘lawful rights’,” Nikos Nagopoulos, an associate professor at the University of the Aegean’s Sociology Department and one of the researchers, told Kathimerini.The academic argues that while there are laws ensuring that citizens are not excluded, this is not enough on a practical level. He cites the adoption of European Union (EU) legislation on non-discrimination in the 2005-06 period, but says that this was never fully put into practice.“We became complacent. We believed that as long as we had an advanced law, all legal rights could be enjoyed and claimed by every citizen. The issue is that there are obstacles of a socioeconomic nature which means that certain people cannot really engage in civic life. They may be interested in making a claim for themselves or their families, but they are largely excluded from public goods and rights.“This creates a democratic deficit, because democracy is not only about ideological confrontation, but also about people’s everyday lives. As a result, those who need citizen rights most are deprived of them.”Greece has made many steps in terms of putting rights into legislation, but findings show that this has not registered with the public. Three in four of those questioned, out of a sample of 1,020 people, had never turned to the Ombudsman for help. Of those who did, two out of three say the Ombudsman had helped them with their case. This is where issues of political culture come into play.“So the question is, if the legislation is in place, why are people not doing enough to claim their rights?” says Nagopoulos.“A first explanation is the far-reaching clientele system. People know that in order to service their demands, they rather make use of connections, not public goods,” he says, adding that the situation is adverse to a participatory understanding of democracy.“Furthermore, past research in social trust has shown that Greeks have blind trust in their family environment while being sceptical and distrustful of institutions. In Europe, on the other hand, people have moderate trust in their family environment and stronger confidence in the institutions. In foreign countries, institutions enjoy a strong status and ethical reputation. The legal and the moral go hand in hand. Something which is legal also has to have a strong moral element.”Public discontent with state sector services and agencies is very deep, studies show. Repeated changes in legislation and staff cuts have made the situation even worse. People are expected to constantly catch up with changes in the legislation, which is not always possible. Many of them turn to the Ombudsman about issues over which the citizens’ advocate has no competence, such as pension cuts. It is very worrying that there has been a recent increase in offences by public sector employees. To make matters worse, people tend to be hostile toward using computers.“The more technology becomes part of the state apparatus – be it the legislative, judicial or executive branch – without the people catching up with these new possibilities, the more citizens will be alienated from their rights,” says Anastasios-Ioannis Metaxas, a political science professor at the University of Athens. For Metaxas, the state and other institutions will always be one step ahead of the individual in terms of this new knowledge. This, he says, raises the issue of fast and accurate information regarding how people can protect their rights. Metaxas says this is extremely crucial with regard to two independent authorities, namely the Hellenic Data Protection Authority (HDPA) and the Ombudsman.“The former receives a great number of claims and complaints and always has to strike a balance between two goods: on one hand, it has to decide whether it will limit information because it could be to the disadvantage of a third party and, on the other, whether it will spread the information, thereby preventing the state from having a monopoly on data on the grounds of the public interest,” he says.As far as the Ombudsman is concerned, Metaxas says, every individual in this country should know what they can ask, what they can protect themselves against and, above all, decode the technical terms and fuzzy bureaucratic details with which they can honour their freedom.“And I use the word ‘honour’ because whoever exercises the freedom he or she is entitled to is at the same time protecting other people’s freedom.”Source: ekathimerini

Ahead of Paris Saint-Germain’s Coupe de France match against Strasbourg, manager Thomas Tuchel called in for a new winter transfer.Paris Saint-Germain’s midfield problem reached a whole new tipping point this past weekend, as manager Thomas Tuchel just lost Italian Marco Verratti due to a nasty ankle injury he suffered against Guingamp.This situation has taken the club to act under extreme circumstances, mainly because Adrien Rabiot is also officially out of the club and won’t play more for PSG after deciding to not renew his contract.The situation has taken a whole new level after Verratti’s incident, it has pushed manager Thomas Tuchel to emergency mode and to publicly beg the PSG board of directors to act quickly before the winter transfer window ends.The major urgency is obviously for a new midfielder, but the market is not as accommodating as it may appear for a club like PSG.Chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi has always been a tough negotiator with other clubs, which means that they tend to return the favor and make things very difficult for when he is the one in dire need of new players.Tuchel is aware of this and he is scared that things won’t go his way before the window closes, this may leave PSG very exposed for the rest of the season as they won’t have a proper replacement for their absentee players.It is very, very serious for us – PSG boss Tuchel wants midfielder in January window https://t.co/xRoyA1tV5R pic.twitter.com/pmXKJ4DQus— Goal Ghana (@goal_ghana) January 22, 2019“It’s January 21 and we have needs,” Tuchel revealed to reporters ahead of a Coupe de France home match against Strasbourg on Wednesday via Goal.“We lost Adrien Rabiot, Lass Diarra and Marco Verratti, the situation has not improved. We stay with our decision [on Rabiot] because Marco returns in a few weeks. We stay with our basic choice.”“We have recovered Dani Alves in this role but it is very, very serious for us. Who do I want? Yeah, yeah, I know. Unfortunately I cannot tell you!”“Julian Draxler has the quality to play with us because he can adapt and he is very, very reliable in many positions.”“Dani Alves will play in the middle against Strasbourg, with his quality and mentality he has done incredible workouts. Draxler has a more offensive profile than he and Marquinhos.”“I have already talked a lot about Adrien and this subject. I can only repeat that it’s a thing between the club and him.”“This is the second-best attack in Ligue 1, they are also very strong in the defensive game, they are in a phase with four wins in a row away,” Tuchel added.Opinion: Neymar needs to apologize to PSG’s supporters Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After such a dramatic summer during the transfer window, Neymar truly needs to apologize to all the PSG supporters this weekend.When Neymar finished last…“It has been experienced there [in Strasbourg] that they are very serious and aggressive. It was very difficult to have opportunities and score.”“It’s a big challenge to play against Strasbourg. We must play at a top level,” he concluded.Tuchel on Borussia Dortmund’s Julian Weigl: “I cannot talk about players who play for another club. Julian was a player of mine, but he is still a Dortmund player today. We are working hard to bring in a defensive midfielder.” #PSGEAG— Jonathan Johnson (@Jon_LeGossip) January 18, 2019For PSG things are very clear, they are currently fighting against Barcelona to sign Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong but the negotiations are proving very difficult.There are very few other options that the French club is actually considering, they wanted Denis Suarez to be part of the deal with Adrien Rabiot but Arsenal seems to be getting in the way of that negotiation.Paris Saint-Germain’s clock is ticking, they are quite desperate to get this new midfielder as soon as possible and not finding one could mean that they won’t be able to compete in the Champions League against Manchester United.This might be the very last chance that manager Thomas Tuchel has to prove that he is the right man for the job, because getting eliminated by the Red Devils will bring about his dismissal and quite possibly the exit of either Neymar or Kylian Mbappe.The most immediate worry for the French giants is Strasbourg, they don’t want to get eliminated from this tournament as they did from Coupe de la Ligue last week against Guingamp.📰 [SPORT] | Tottenham ready to bid for Rabiot in January.🔶According to Mirror, Spurs has joined the list of bidders for the PSG midfielder which includes Barça.🔷He finishes his contract in June 2019 and has already rejected the last offer of PSG despite Tuchel’s praise. pic.twitter.com/qWflq5zzX4— BarçaTimes (@BarcaTimes) October 3, 2018Which midfielder would you like PSG to sign during this winter transfer window?

CHULA VISTA (KUSI) — A repeat DUI offender who drove drunk and hopped curb on a Chula Vista street, killing a man sitting on a bus bench, was sentenced Friday to 20 years to life in state prison.Nicholas Ruben Ramirez, 29, was convicted in December of second-degree murder, vehicular manslaughter while impaired, hit-and-run and DUI with injury. Judge Dwayne Moring sentenced the defendant to 15 years to life on the murder charge and an additional five years for leaving the scene.Chula Vista police said Ramirez had just left a bar in the 1400 block of Third Avenue in Chula Vista about 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 4, 2016, when he crashed his car into a parked vehicle and drove off.Ramirez returned a few minutes later, and witnesses to the non-injury accident confronted him, police said. He then sped off again and lost control of his car, which hopped a curb on Third Avenue near Orange Avenue and struck 65-year-old William Gerling, severing one of his legs. The victim was pronounced dead at a hospital.Ramirez has two prior DUIs from 2009, according to Deputy District Attorney Cally Bright.

An apparent domestic disturbance led to a report of a child being shot at in the Hazel Dell area Thursday morning, but Clark County sheriff’s deputies quickly determined the report was likely unfounded.The initial report indicated that a gunman had shot at a child during a possible traffic-related incident around 9 a.m. in the 9800 block of Northeast Tenny Creek Drive in north Hazel Dell. The incident occurred on a residential street not far off the Highway 99 strip.Deputies arrived but found no victim, and in the first few minutes, discovered no evidence of a shooting, said sheriff’s Sgt. Fred Neiman. A man was detained for questioning at a nearby shopping center in the 1200 block of Northeast 99th Street, near Interstate 5, deputies said.So far, Neiman said, it doesn’t appear a gun was involved. “It appears to be a domestic disturbance with adults,” he said. A witness had reported the incident.Because deputies never identified a victim, they wrote a report and suspended the investigation. There is nothing more to go on, Neiman said, but the information is on file in case a victim comes forward or another incident is reported at the location. Neiman said that when someone calls 911, the information they give dispatchers is occasionally off base.When these reports come in with misinformation, Neiman said, “a lot of times, (the reporting person’s) perception of something might not be completely accurate. It doesn’t mean they’re being untruthful or exaggerating or anything.”
Kylie and Madison show off their matching necklaces which read “You are my anchor.” (Hillman/KSKA)Last spring, for our series “The Blind Spot” we spoke with a young couple we’re calling Madison and Kylie. Those aren’t their real names since one of them is a minor. They were both battling addictions to methanphedimines. To escape, they moved to Wasilla to get away from their friends and families who were still using. Being around them makes staying sober a thousand times harder, they said.Since then, Madison and Kylie have lost their housing in the Valley and have moved back to Anchorage. They came into KSKA to talk about how they’re doing now. Initially they were staying with Kylie’s dad, who was still using meth…Download AudioTranscript:Kylie: And we did see some of our old friends, but it wasn’t as bad I thought it would be.Madison: We basically ignored them though… Even though it’s not good being around them. It was actually really hard for us being with her dad because we knew what they were doing in the back room and so we’re just out there, in the living room.K: We were just alone all the time. We didn’t really see him even though we were living with him.Anne: How did you keep resisting [using drugs]?M: By looking at all the people who were in the house.K: And how far we’ve seen them fall.M: Like how crappy they were compared to how awesome we were basically.A: Did you start job searching? Apartment searching?M: We didn’t want to start job searching at that point until we had a stable place to live because we knew we weren’t going to stay with her dad for very long and we didn’t really want to. It’s really hard to get a job when you don’t have a stable place to live because it just is not.A: So how did you end up finding a stable place to stay?K: We actually ended up moving back in with my cousins, which we had stayed on and off with them when we were trying to get sober before we actually did stay sober.A: How does it feel being around someone about your own age who is clean?K: I really like being around my cousin all the time. It’s like a good environment. He helps us a lot more than most people do. He’s there for us more than most people are.M: He really wants us to do good.K: It’s really nice having that as an influence.M: He’s like a parent.K: It’s really nice having him around.M: He has a car and he’s always like OK. And he checks in on us if he’s at work and we’re supposed to be at work. He calls just to make sure we’re awake and whatnot. He’s very motherly. And I say motherly because he’s so gay, also. Not fatherly but motherly.A: Is it nice to live with someone else who is gay, too?Kylie and Madison joke about their shoes. (Hillman/KSKA)K: Yeah, it make it’s a lot easier.M: Yeah, because you can just relate on a different level, even though he’s a gay guy.K: There’s like jokes you can make with him that you can’t make with other people. They’d be like, ‘How do you not get offended at that because you’re making fun of gay people?’ It’s okay with us because we know we’re all joking and not being serious.A: You have a stable place to live. You have positive influences in your life. Are you working?K: I work in the 5th Avenue Mall. I like the environment with everybody. I like being able to help people and feel like I’m actually helping somebody with their day, even if it’s something small like selling shoes to them.M: Well, I actually recently lost my job because I was late one time. But I’m trying to get a job just anywhere. I don’t even care where. I just want a job. Actually, I want a job at the Teen Center, which is where I worked before I went to Wasilla.A: What about school?K: We’re kind of like in between schools right now. I’m hoping to maybe go to S.A.V.E.A: How are you two doing? Last time we talked you talked about how you get annoyed with each other when you’re on drugs but you’re better when you’re off.K: We still fight.M: She’s still annoying some times.K: So are you… We’re actually planning our wedding in two months. She doesn’t do very much of the planning.M: Well that’s what my best friend is for. They’re planning away and I’m like ‘thank god!’K: She tried telling me she was going to wear jeans to the wedding. And I told her I would turn around in the aisle.M: I said black skinny jeans, that’s classy, right?A: So why marriage? I’m sure you’ve heard it a thousand times before. You guys are real young.K: Yeah, a lot of people have given us their two cents on why we shouldn’t get married.M: We’ve been together for like a really long time.A: Like a year.K: A year and a half. But we’ve been through a lot more than most people would in like 20, 30 years of marriage. We’ve put each other through a lot more, too. We know we can get through it all.M: We’ve actually come really far.K: Than how we used to be. And talking things out.M: I feel like we’ve come to a whole different level of ourselves.K: I really like what we do. I really like the way we are now. Like drinking and all the things most kids our age do is not entertaining at all to us anymore. Like the most entertaining thing we tried to do is we tried to go geocaching. And we’ll like go home and eat a lot of candy and watch horror movies and stuff.M: We do old people stuff. We do stuff that like older people do and people think they’re boring.K: I don’t know, I think it’s really fun.You can listen to their previous interview here.
TV network execs have long complained that Nielsen’s TV ratings undercount audiences because the measurement firm doesn’t always account for consumers watching shows on digital apps.Now, internet viewing on Comcast’s Xfinity Stream app and website will be integrated into Nielsen’s official linear TV ratings, under an expanded pact between the U.S.’s largest cable operator and Nielsen.Nielsen is targeting early 2019 to bring measurement of Xfinity Stream computer and mobile viewing of TV programming into its official linear currency. Currently, television viewership across Xfinity TV set-top boxes including the operator’s X1 platform is included in Nielsen’s national and local ratings.“People are consuming content differently and across a variety of screens,” Marcien Jenckes, president of Comcast Cable Advertising, said in a statement. “With this expanded relationship, our aim is to provide marketers with a more holistic view into how people are engaging with content and foster better exchanges between marketers and consumers.” Popular on Variety ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

In addition to the expanded linear TV measurement, under the pact Xfinity Stream viewing will be included in Nielsen’s Digital Content Ratings (DCR) product.The Xfinity Stream apps let Comcast’s TV subscribers watch their full live TV lineup on devices at home and more than 200 channels out of the home over any broadband connection in the U.S. The app, available for iOS and Android devices, also provides access to Xfinity On Demand titles.
Artist Ekta Jain is soon going to display her solo painting exhibition with the theme of her exhibition titled Hope and Never Despair. The exhibition which will begin on 9 May will display her abstracts which are reflective of hope and faith and of assurance and conviction. Ekta Jain is a promising star on the horizon of art and artistry. Ekta’s artwork is autobiographical and bears a close resemblance to her never-say-die spirit and cheerful demeanour, finding vivid translation in her aesthetically pleasing formations and fabrications on the canvas. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The core theme of Ekta Jain’s portrayals remain Hope and never to despair which cannot escape the on-lookers attention.
