Comprehensive medicinal cannabis bill drawn – Shane Reti

first_imgMedia Release National Party Dr Shane Reti 23 July 2020My Member’s Bill to implement a comprehensive medicinal cannabis regime that would widen access to medicinal cannabis and license high quality domestic production, has been drawn in Parliament, MP for Whangarei Shane Reti says.“New Zealanders deserve greater access to high quality medicinal cannabis products to ease their suffering, but we must have the right regulatory and legislative controls in place.“My bill is a more comprehensive alternative to the Government’s cannabis bill. The Government has said it will increase access now and leave it to officials to think through the controls and the consequences later. That’s typical of this Government but it’s not acceptable.“The Government declined the bill 18 months ago, if they hadn’t New Zealanders would have access to affordable medicinal cannabis right now.The Misuse of Drugs (Medicinal Cannabis) Amendment Bill (No 2) will achieve the following:Medicinal cannabis products will be approved in the same way a medicine is approved by Medsafe. No loose leaf cannabis products will be approved.Medical practitioners will decide who should have access to a Medicinal Cannabis Card, which will certify them to buy medicinal cannabis products.Medicinal cannabis products will be pharmacist-only medicine.Cultivators and manufacturers must be licenced for commercial production. Licence holders and staff will be vetted to ensure they are fit and proper persons.A licensing regime that will create a safe market for medicinal cannabis products. Cultivators and manufacturers will not be able to be located within 5km of residential land, or 1km of sensitive sites such as schools and wahi tapu.No advertising of medicinal cannabis products to the public will be permitted.The Ministry of Health will review the legislation in five years.“National is determined to be a constructive opposition working on new ideas and new policies. This bill is the result of significant work, including a study I conducted overseas and reflects a blend of international best practice, tailored to New Zealand.“I recognise there is a delayed medicinal cannabis process underway by the Government, but I encourage them to pick up the enormous amount of work done by National in Opposition and implement our comprehensive reforms to ensure this is done once and done right. So that New Zealanders in need can access high quality medicinal cannabis products to ease their suffering.”http://www.voxy.co.nz/health/5/369707last_img read more

CALIFORNIA-BRED BIG BOOK PREVAILS BY A HEAD UNDER PEDROZA TO WIN $58,000 SANTA ANITA ALLOWANCE FEATURE; TRAINED BY YAKTEEN, KRIKORIAN HOMEBRED GETS 1 1/16 MILES IN 1:44.76

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (May 20, 2016)–Idle since facing the mighty Beholder in late September, California-bred Big Book was all heart late as she prevailed by a head under Martin Pedroza to win Friday’s $58,000 allowance feature at Santa Anita. Owned and bred in California by George Krikorian and conditioned by Tim Yakteen, Big Book covered a mile and a sixteenth in 1:44.76.Racing in the middle of a three-horse spread leaving the three furlong pole, Big Book appeared to ease back for several strides but when longshot Slip of the Tongue tired suddenly to her outside, Pedroza angled three-wide turning for home and in a rousing stretch duel, outdid runner-up Savannah Sky.Off at 5-2 with Pedroza in a field of eight fillies and mares three and up (six of which were Kentucky-bred), Big Book paid $7.60, $3.40 and $3.00. Pedroza, who was joined in the Winner’s Circle by his 21-year-old son, Tyler, notched his second win of the afternoon.When asked if he was concerned about overcoming crowded conditions, Yakteen responded, “I was concerned, but she overcame my training. We were hoping for a good, clean race and hoping this could be a steppingstone to bigger things. She’s got a lotta heart and she’s a racehorse, for sure.”As for Krikorian, who also serves as a commissioner on the California Horse Racing Board, he was understandably elated with Big Book’s return to action.“It’s nice to have her back,” he said. “She got a little tired, but she tried really hard.”A well beaten fifth to three-time Eclipse Award winning Beholder in the Grade I Zenyatta Stakes at Santa Anita Sept. 26, Big Book, a 4-year-old filly by the Dynaformer stallion Mr. Big (also owned by Krikorian), got her first win in open company and improved her overall mark to 6-3-1-0. With the winner’s share of $45,240, Big Book increased her earnings to $139,640.Trained by Richard Baltas and ridden by Rafael Bejarano, Savannah Sky moved into contention leaving the half mile pole but proved second best as she finished 1 ¼ lengths in front of Light Striker. The second choice in the wagering at 5-2, Savannah Sky paid $3.40 and $2.80.Ridden by Drayden Van Dyke, Light Striker, who was a distant last with a quarter mile to run, finished with a rush to be third, 1 ½ lengths in front of Swissarella. Off at 63-1, she paid $9.40 to show.Ridden by Mike Smith, Street Surrender, who added blinkers today, appeared rank early and faded badly to finish last as the 8-5 favorite.Fractions on the race were 23.17, 46.42, 1:10.76 and 1:37.70.Santa Anita will open early, at 7 a.m. on Saturday, Preakness Day, for simulcast wagering in the Paddock Room, located under the Grandstand.

World’s safest airlines for 2017

first_imgAirlineRatings.com, the world’s only safety and product rating website, which was launched in June 2013, has announced its top twenty safest airlines and top ten safest low-cost airlines for 2017 from the 425 it monitors.Top of the list for the fourth year is Australia’s Qantas, which has a fatality free record in the jet era – an extraordinary record. Making up the remainder of the top twenty in alphabetical order are: Air New Zealand, Alaska Airlines, All Nippon Airways, British Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways,  Delta Air Lines, Etihad Airways, EVA Air, Finnair, Hawaiian Airlines, Japan Airlines, KLM, Lufthansa, Scandinavian Airline System, Singapore Airlines, Swiss, United Airlines, Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Australia.In making its selections AirlineRatings.com takes into account numerous factors that include; audits from aviation’s governing bodies and lead associations; government audits; airline’s crash and serious incident record; profitability and fleet age.AirlineRating.com’s editorial team, one of the world’s most awarded and experienced, also examined each airline’s fleet history and its track record of initiating new safety technology to arrive at its top 20 safest airlines.The AirlineRatings.com top twenty have always been at the forefront of safety innovation and launching of new aircraft and these airlines have become a byword for excellence.AirlineRatings.com editors also identified their top ten safest low-cost airlines.These are in alphabetical order:  Aer Lingus, Flybe, HK Express, Jetblue, Jetstar Australia, Jetstar Asia, Thomas Cook, Virgin America, Vueling and Westjet.Unlike a number of low-cost carriers, these airlines have all passed the stringent International Air Transport Association Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) which has over 1000 audit items and have excellent safety records.Suggested read: How we work out each airline’s safety rating Of the 425 airlines surveyed, 148 have the top seven-star safety ranking but almost 50 have just three stars or less. There are 14 airlines with only one star and these airlines are from Afghanistan, Indonesia, Nepal and Surinam.In selecting Qantas as the world’s safest airline for the fourth year running AirlineRatings.com editors noted that over its 96-year history the world’s oldest continuously operating airline has amassed an amazing record of firsts in operations and safety and is now accepted by the British Advertising Standards Association as the industry’s most experienced carrier.The Australian airline has been a leader in; the development of the Future Air Navigation System; the Flight Data Recorder to monitor plane and later crew performance; automatic landings using Global Navigation Satellite System as well as precision approaches around mountains in cloud using RNP. Qantas was the lead airline with real-time monitoring of its engines across its fleet using satellite communications, which has enabled the airline to detect problems before they become a major safety issue.Despite some high-profile accidents in 2016, the number of crashes has shown a steady and persistent decline over the past two decades.Air crashes are big news but statistics from the Aviation Safety Network show that 2016 was the second safest year on record to take a flight.The Netherlands-based ASN, which compiles a global accident database, looked at crashes worldwide of civil aircraft carrying at least 14 passengers and found there were 19 fatal airliner accidents involving 325 deaths. The network’s statistics include acts such as suicide, sabotage and hijackings that can be excluded from some analyses.Although this was up from 16 accidents in 2015, it still made 2016 the second safest year ever by number of fatal accidents as well as in terms of fatalities.By comparison, 560 people died in 2015, while the year of the lowest number of fatalities, 2013, recorded 29 accidents.Eleven of the accidents and 288 deaths involved passenger flights but the ASN noted this translated to one fatal passenger flight per 3.2 million flights.This means aviation is still by far the safest way to travel and provides a context for the widespread media coverage of high-profile crashes such as the LaMia tragedy in Colombia involving a Brazillian football team.The ASN’s analysis also found the five-year average trend showed accidents occurring during approach and landing fell to their lowest point in 45 years.last_img read more

An injustice to the values of ubuntu – Brand South Africa condemns attacks

first_imgAs the country celebrates 25 years of democracy, South Africans are encouraged to reflect on how the country has, for decades, been at the forefront of the struggle for human rights.

South Africa has continuously played a significant role in the economic development and progress of a democracy gained through open, inclusive dialogue with the spirit of Ubuntu.The country’s values as reflected in the constitution, entrench the rights of all its people, affirming respect for human dignity, equality and freedom. The recent attacks on foreign nationals in KwaZulu Natal are in contradiction of what we fought against and are a threat to who we are as a nation.Brand South Africa condemns these attacks and appeals to citizens to play their part in fighting against any form of violence against humanity, understanding the impact of these actions on the reputation of the country. This country has become home to many foreign nationals, this is why we are known to be a warm and welcoming nation. President Ramaphosa said “Xenophobia has no place in our democracy and we must do everything to root it out. As South Africans, we owe our freedom to the solidarity and support given to our liberation struggle by people across our continent and around the world”.In the true spirit of Ubuntu, South Africa’s largest disaster response NGO; Gift of the Givers has responded to the attacks by providing, amongst others, food, blankets, sanitary pads, disposable nappies, and hygiene packs to the displaced foreign nationals.Dr Imitiaz Sooliman, Founder of the NGO said: “Never must it be said that South Africans, in general, did not lend a helping hand or remained silent when fellow humans were suffering.”It is to this end that Brand South Africa calls on all citizens to take a stand against these violent attacks. “Whilst we make a call on all South Africans to support our initiative to show that we are a nation that cares, we also call on government, community and religious leaders to sit down and finally resolve this untenable state of circumstances permanently,” adds Sooliman.                                            South Africa is also assisting hundreds of thousands of people affected in the wake of Cyclone Idai, in Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Collaborative Relief efforts from the South African National Defense Force, South African Police Services and the Department of Health, offering defence helicopters to airlift people from flooded areas, trained dogs and their handlers to assist with the search and rescue efforts and humanitarian relief.The President of South Africa and Minister of International Relations and Cooperation have called on individuals and organisations, locally and internationally, to donate non-perishable foodstuff, blankets, clean water, medical supplies and financial aid to assist.
