Assisted Suicide: Is there a suicide contagion effect?

first_imgAlex Schadenberg 11 November 2014It is well established that a single suicide can encourage other suicides, which is called a “suicide contagion.” If the additional suicides use the same method, they are “copy cat” suicides. Moreover, as explained below, this encouragement phenomenon is relevant to Compassion & Choices’ media campaign.A famous example of a suicide contagion is the suicide death of Marilyn Monroe, which inspired an increase in other suicides. This encouragement phenomenon can also occur when the inspiring death is not a suicide. An example is the televised execution of Saddam Hussein, which led to suicide deaths of children worldwide. An NBC News article begins:“The boys’ deaths – scattered in the United States, in Yemen, in Turkey and elsewhere in seemingly isolated horror – had one thing in common: They hanged themselves after watching televised images of Saddam Husseins’ execution.”Groups such as the National Institute of Health and the World Health Organization have developed guidelines for reporting suicide to prevent suicide contagions. Important points include that the risk of additional suicides increases “when the story explicitly describes the suicide method, uses dramatic/graphic headlines or images, and repeated/extensive coverage.”Please consider the following:● Oregon’s physician-assisted suicide law went into effect in 1998.● By 2000, Oregon’s regular suicide rate was “increasing significantly” See (“After decreasing in the 1990s, suicide rates have been increasing significantly since 2000”).● By 2007, Oregon’s other (regular) suicide rate was 35% above the national average.● By 2010, per the most recent report, Oregon’s other (regular) suicide rate was 41% above the national average.Margaret Dore is an attorney in Washington State where assisted suicide is legal. She is a former Law Clerk to the Washington State Supreme Court. She is President of Choice is an Illusion, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit corporation. Choice is an Illusion welcomes everyone opposed to assisted suicide and euthanasia regardless of your views on other issues.

Time Machine: Syracuse knocks off No.1 Nebraska in 1984 for only upset of top-ranked team in SU program history

first_imgEditor’s note: This was a game story written by Joe Guise after Syracuse beat No. 1 Nebraska that was published in The Daily Orange on Oct. 1, 1984. Dick MacPherson knew something special was going to happen on Saturday afternoon.The night before, the Syracuse University football coach and his staff made their usual rounds at 9 p.m. to “check on the players and bring them lunches.” This time, however, most of the team was sound asleep.“They have to get up at 7 a.m., so we usually give them the food at nine and they’re asleep by 10,” MacPherson said. “Only on Friday night, I knew something was up because we had to wake up 70 percent of the guys.“It reminded me of the time I was coaching at UMass and we were playing Western Illinois the next day for the championship,” he continued. “Those guys were sound asleep early also, and we went on to win that game. So I knew we were going to do something special this Saturday. It’s amazing they were asleep, because you know how hungry football players get.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn Saturday, the Orangemen showed just how hungry they can be by feasting on some corn. Well, Cornhuskers to be more exact, as SU registered a stunning 17-9 upset of top-ranked Nebraska before 47,280 delirious fans at the Carrier Dome.For SU, the victory marked the school’s biggest win since the 1959 Orangemen defeated Texas, 23-14, in the Cotton Bowl to win the national championship. And it was the first time in 95 years of football that the Orange beat the nation’s top ranked team. SU’s previously highest-ranked victim was No. 4 UCLA in 1967, when the Orangemen held Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Gary Beban to just 17 yards in a 32-14 victory.The win may not have put Syracuse in the same position as that illustrious team, but it did put Nebraska Coach Tom Osborne inane unfamiliar situation. For the first time in 24 regular-season games, Osborne had to explain why his team last. Not since the Cornhuskers dropped a 27-24 decision to Penn State back in 1982 was he forced to do that.But the nation’s third winningest active coach behind Oklahoma’s Barry Switzer and the Nittany Lions’ Joe Paterno had a simple explanation for the biggest college football upset of the year thus far.“They were more physical than we were,” said Osborne, who has featured a program of virtual man-eaters for the past 11 years. “We got banged around pretty good today, and their defense probably played as good a game of football as anybody has played against us in three or four years.“I said before the season that Syracuse would be one of the two toughest teams we’d play this year,” he continued. “They certainly showed that today. We made too many mistakes (including two fumbles and one interception) and they didn’t make many at all. Syracuse just outplayed us.”One week ago, that didn’t seem possible. After a humiliating 19-0 loss to Rutgers in its home opener, SU entered the game a 25-point underdog. But the Orangemen (3-1) used stingy defense and ball-control offense to hand the Cornhuskers their worst defeat since a 20-7 loss to Alabama in the 1978 opener.“We went from the doghouse to the penthouse in one week,” MacPherson said. “We played outstanding defense. Anytime you hold the nation’s premier offense to just seven points, you have to be happy.“But you also have to give a lot of credit to our offense,” he continued. “They bounced back from all the turnovers last week and moved the ball really well today. If they hadn’t held on to the ball for so long (SU enjoyed a possession time margin of 37 minutes to 23), our defense may not have been had the game it did.”Sparking defenseExcept for the Orange’s two touchdown drives, though, the defense did steal the spotlight. Ranked fourth in the nation in total defense and second in pass defense prior to the game, SU held the Cornhuskers’ 531-yard, 40.7 point-per-game offense to just 214 total yards and a lone first-quarter score. It was Nebraska’s lowest output since a 6-0 victory over Missouri in 1981, and it marked the eighth consecutive time the Orangemen held their opponent to only one touchdown.“We said to ourselves that they had 11 men on the field just like we did,” said SU defensive tackle Tim Green, who recorded two sacks and breezed past Nebraska’s left offensive tackle Mark Behning so often the 6-foot-7, 290 pound giant looked more like a Dome revolving door.“They execute better than any offense I’ve ever seen, but it wasn’t like they had twice as many guys on the field as we did, though it sometimes looks that way on the field,” he continued. “Who’s to say just because it’s Nebraska or the Pittsburgh Steelers that we can’t beat them?”That attitude surfaced in the game’s opening series as the Orangemen forced the Cornhuskers to punt for only the ninth time all year. Nebraska did, however, open the game’s scoring 7:09 into the first quarter as quarterback Craig Sundberg followed a beautiful play-action fake to running back Doug Dubose with a perfect 25-yard touchdown strike to tight end Todd Frain.But that was the last time the Cornhusker offense put any points on the board. Sundberg, bothered by a sore shoulder, did not throw the ball particularly well, completing just five-of-13 passes for 60 yards and throwing an interception to SU’s Ron Hobby in the second quarter that looked more like a dying quail plummeting to earth than a forward pass.The running game was also not up to par. Though DeBose led all ball carriers with 107 yards, the Nebraska backfield’s longest run from scrimmage was only 20 yards. And even that came on a broken play when Sundbuerg was flushed out of the pocket. In defense of the Cornhuskers, the unit may have suffered slightly from the loss of I-back Jeff Smith, who rushed for 476 yards in Nebraska’s routs over Wyoming, Minnesota and UCLA but sat out Saturday’s contest with a sprained ankle. But Osborne doesn’t agree.“With or without Jeff Smith, this was a tough game for us and I hope they don’t get any tougher,” he said. “I don’t think he would’ve made any difference because they beat us at the line of scrimmage, both offensively and defensively, and that’s where games are won.”That the Orange were able to dominate the trenches was quite a surprise, especially when the Nebraska program has always been known for the players at those positions with the strength of a moving freight trains. But the SU offensive line began to take charge late in the second quarter as the Orange drove from its own 17-yard line to the Nebraska six, using up more than eight minutes. Though the Orangemen hat to settle for a 24-yard field goal, it gave them confidence that they could move the ball against the nation’s second-ranked defense.“We got killed by them last year (63-7 at Lincoln) and they just beat UCLA, 42-3, the week before, so that drive and being down only 7-4 really got our confidence up,” said SU halfback Jaime Covington, who rushed for 99 yards on 30 carries. “At that point, we knew we could sustain a drive with no problem. We were just mad we didn’t punch it into the end zone.”There was plenty of time for that. SU did find the end zone with 4:50 left in the third quarter. On a second-and-21 situation, quarterback Todd Norley (9-18-1 for 106 yards) threw a 40-yard rainbow to Mike Siano at the gaol line. The 6-foot-4 junior wide receiver out jumped Nebraska defensive backs Dennis Watkins and Bret Clar and grabbed the ball to give the Orangemen their first lead of the game.Strangely enough, Norley never saw Siano catch the ball. The junior was on the ground at the time after Cornhusker defensive and Scott Strasburger leveled him from behind.“I looked up from the ground and saw the referee’s hands go up,” said Norley, who suffered a slightly sprained knee and had to be helped off the field. “The crowd’s reaction was enough to know we’d scored.”While it first appeared Norley might be finished for the game, the Warriongton Pa. native came back on the very next series. And even though the dramatic Norley-Siano connection was all the scoring SU needed for the victory, fullback Harold Gayden provided some insurance 1:29 left in the game. He capped a 60-yard, 13-play drive with a one-yard touchdown run around right end — the first rushing touchdown this season against the previously miser-like Nebraska defense.CelebrationThat play initiated a celebration in the stands that filtered on to the field for almost an hour after the game had ended. SU punter Jim Fox closed out the game’s scoring by deliberately taking a safety as time ran out.“Everybody had piece of this victory,” said Steve Villanti, SU’s right guard, who made the key block on Gayden’s touchdown run. “This type of game can only happen when everybody helps. They (Nebraska) come at you so hard, but we just went right back at them and maybe even a little harder. That’s the kind of football I like. It was great, great, great.”Now, all that remains is whether the upset will be enough to catapolt the Orange into either the AP or UPI Top Twenty or both. Those polls will come out on Monday and Tuesday respectively. But for the time being, the Orangemen can sit back, relax and enjoy the fact that they shocked the college football world.“This wasn’t a fluke,” MacPherson said. “We played hard. I’m sure they’ll tell you that. Maybe now, some people will realize that we have a decent football team. That’s what we’re after — some respect.”And they certainly earned it Saturday.“We’re not embarrassed,” Nebraska’s All-American center, Mark Tranowicz, said. “Like Coach (Osborne) said, we didn’t fall on our face. Down deep, I don’t quite understand what happened to us — except that they just played better than us.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 10, 2014 at 1:20 amlast_img read more

Henson: Analyzing scouts’ evaluations of some UW prospects

first_imgQuite often, NFL scouts are wrong.They have a challenging job. A job that requires them to predict the future success of collegiate athletes for teams prepared to spend millions.They attend everything from the scouting combine to pro days and private workout sessions, charting every move a prospect makes, hoping to deliver an accurate grade to their respective war rooms.It’s widely understood that there will be inexplicable busts each year. That just comes with the territory of being a scout.But you’d assume all the proper research is done to ensure teams make the best pick possible.You’d assume they know everything there is to know about each player they scout.Well, that’s not always the case.Yesterday, Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had a story that provided unnamed scouts’ takes on various players from Wisconsin high schools or colleges, leading up to the draft.For the most part, the scouts’ insights made sense. Their evaluations of the former Badgers were in line with what we saw here at UW throughout the past couple seasons.But then I got to Bill Nagy and Scott Tolzien.Both players are expected to be late picks or free agent signees. For them, each scout’s view is critical as they try to get one team to take a chance on them towards the end of the draft. Most coaches and general managers aren’t spending a lot of time studying film of Nagy and Tolzien – it’s the scouts who get paid to find those late-round contributors.But sometimes these scouts’ logic makes you scratch your head.We’ll start with Nagy. Here’s what one scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:“There’s just no reason why he can’t come to an NFL team and be a center-guard for at minimum four years, Every time he went into a game he played well. Between that kid and that coach there’s something going on. They don’t talk him up. They don’t seem to think he’s much of a prospect, but the tape to me shows different. I don’t get why he didn’t start at center or guard.”Lets break this down.The scout spoke highly of Nagy, noting his ability to come into games when needed and perform at a high level.Then the scout hints there may have been a player-coach dispute, which explains why Nagy wasn’t named a starter.That’s news to me. That’s news to anyone who covered the Wisconsin football team this past year.Nagy was the odd-man-out for the deepest offensive line in the country. He had a shot to win a starting job at right guard heading into the season but lost out to Kevin Zeitler – one of the top interior lineman in the Big Ten. And as for the center position? Some scouts say Peter Konz was the best O-lineman the Badgers had last season (including Carimi and Moffitt). Nagy wasn’t slighted. He played behind some of the best lineman in college football.What’s worse is the other part of the scouts’ take could be interpreted as one of those “character issues” we always hear about come draft day. What did he do to lose favor with the staff? Why does Nagy have a poor relationship with head coach Bret Bielema?There is no evidence that shows these are questions that need to be asked.Bielema constantly praised Nagy for his hard work and dedication to the team. The senior played three positions for Bielema (guard, center and tight end) and did what he could to get on the field.His performance against Iowa, when he replaced the injured Konz, drew tons of praise.“Billy Nagy pops in, takes off the tight end jersey number and steps in there. Unbelievable, selfless act to give us that win,” Bielema said.Here’s what Nagy had to say after the 31-30 victory: “That’s my role, and I’m doing whatever I can to help the team win.”But that’s not the only questionable perspective I found.Here’s what a scout said about Tolzien to the Journal Sentinel:“He will be a third and smarter than the starting quarterback. He manages the game. He can’t win a championship for you. He couldn’t bring them back against TCU. He’s just not gifted enough to do it.”Everyone agrees Tolzien is probably destined to hold a clipboard in the NFL. He doesn’t have ideal measurables or arm strength, but he’d be a reliable backup quarterback – a guy who won’t make costly mistakes and who’ll know the offense perfectly.No problem with that sentiment.But it’s not fair to say Tolzien can’t win a championship because he couldn’t bring the Badgers back against TCU.You’re going to discount Tolzien because Horned Frogs’ linebacker Tank Carder made an incredible individual play to knock Tolzien’s game-tying 2-point try down? If Carder loses his footing, gets pancaked by the UW O-line and Tolzien completes that pass, does that give him a higher NFL grade?That’s absurd.Point to his mechanics or question his arm strength if you want, but Tolzien proved he could win the Badgers a game with his arm.UW’s running game was so good last year, Tolzien rarely needed to sling the ball around and engineer a comeback.But in that same game in Iowa City where Nagy impressed, Tolzien led a game-winning, 15-play touchdown drive. UW went with an empty backfield, shotgun formation and Tolzien delivered against the Hawkeyes at a point in the season when they still cared enough to try.Takes a pretty gifted signal caller to pull that off.Sure, Tolzien and Nagy aren’t perfect.Neither are the scouts.Max is a senior majoring in journalism.

Guardiola repeats call for player protection as City forge ahead

first_imgManchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola urged officials to better protect his star players after a 3-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday.The result left his side with a commanding 15-point lead at the top of the Premier League but Guardiola was unhappy with a series of challenges, the worst of which saw Matt Phillips booked for a high-flying lunge at young City substitute Brahim Diaz. — Vincent Kompany (@VincentKompany) January 31, 2018– ‘Poor challenge’ –But Albion manager Alan Pardew believed Guardiola’s weekend comments had provoked City supporters into trying to put pressure on referee Bobby Madley in a bid to get him to hand out harsher treatment to the visitors than might otherwise have been the case.Pardew also pointed out that City were not faultless, highlighting an early incident in which home midfielder Fernandinho appeared to stamp on Grzegorz Krychowiak, who had to be replaced later in the first half.“He’s a winger and in desperate situations wingers can make poor challenges. It was a poor challenge, make no mistake about that,” said Pardew of Phillips’s challenge.“But I think Fernandinho made a similar one in the middle of the pitch. I’m not sure if the referee saw it.“I thought Pep’s comments at the weekend affected the crowd. Every challenge, they were saying ‘you’re not protecting our players, referee!’.A brilliant way to end the month! ? #cityvwba pic.twitter.com/giHfdLkoJX— Manchester City (@ManCity) January 31, 2018“There were a few songs sung about him but I actually thought he (Madley) had a decent game.”Officiating aside, it was a routine victory for Guardiola’s team, with goals from Fernandinho, De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero sealing victory.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 The incident followed City’s FA Cup victory at Cardiff on Sunday where Leroy Sane suffered an ankle ligament injury which will sideline him for up to seven weeks — prompting Guardiola’s call for his players’ protection.However, he was in a more conciliatory mood on Wednesday, although he did have an animated discussion with fourth official Kevin Friend on the final whistle.“I’ve said what I said so we spoke with Kevin, the fourth official,” Guardiola told reporters. “They have an opinion, I have another one, they’re the bosses, I accept that. I have to accept it.”The Spaniard added: “Today we were lucky, three or four days ago we were unlucky with Leroy.“The image speaks for itself. I could repeat what I said after the last game but it’s not necessary. The chat was good, that’s all.”Guardiola was also unhappy with a late lunge by James McClean on Kevin De Bruyne, which earned the West Brom man a yellow card, and an Allan Nyom foul on Kyle Walker.All going well boys.

Coutinho at his best with aims of adding to his impressive record vs Spurs

first_imgPHILIPPE COUTINHO is out to haunt Tottenham once again when they host Bayern Munich tonight.The rejuvenated Brazilian is showing the same form that earned him that big money move from Liverpool to Barcelona in January 2018.3 Philippe Coutinho is back and ready to haunt Spurs againCredit: ReutersWhether it was the price-tag or the pressure of playing for Barcelona, Coutinho failed to live up to expectations and eventually left for Bayern after 18 months.A move to the Bundesliga champions has provided him with a fresh start and he appears to be revelling in his new-found freedom.The 27-year-old has scored twice and assisted two in three league starts and he’ll be desperate to light up the biggest stage of all in the Champions League.Coutinho will feel he has a point to prove but to Spurs fans across the country, they are fully aware of the damage he can inflict on the field.He has played 13 times against Spurs throughout his career, winning seven and losing just twice.One of those came in the Champions League for Inter Milan in 2010 when he was introduced in the final 26 minutes of a 3-1 defeat at White Hart Lane.The other came in October 2017 when Spurs ran out 4-1 winners over Jurgen Klopp’s side.He has found the net three times including for Barca in 2018 as the Catalan giants came out on top at Wembley in a 4-2 victory.If Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino had his way, then Coutinho would be lining up in the colours of Tottenham tonight.The Argentine attempted to sign him in the summer on a loan deal in the summer after hearing of his availability.Coutinho’s record vs SpursGames: 13Wins: 7Losses: 2Goals: 3Assists: 2most read in footballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himREF RAIDChampions League ref Vincic ‘arrested in raid into drugs and prostitution ring’STIR IT UPBohemians post cryptic response to FIFA promoting a jersey with Bob Marley on itBut Coutinho turned them down before eventually completing his switch to Germany.A defeat for Spurs will leave them in a tough spot following their disappointing draw to Olympiacos in their last outing.Bayern top the group after their opening 3-0 win over Red Star.3 The Brazilian is rejuvenating his career at Bayern MunichCredit: Reuters3 Coutinho scored against Spurs for Barcelona almost a year agoCredit: Times Newspapers LtdTottenham vs Bayern Munich – Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and betting odds for Champions League matchlast_img read more
