Cannabis ‘hikes schizophrenia risk’

first_imgStuff.co.nz 28 November 2013Some heavy cannabis users are up to 11 times more likely to develop schizophrenia, a drug symposium in Auckland has been told.People with a certain gene combination that exists in 25 percent of the population  had that heightened risk, Otago University’s Professor Richie Poulton told the Cannabis and Health Symposium.Risk of psychosis was elevated for those who used the drug when they were young, the Dunedin Longitudinal Study showed, but not at the levels of that gene combination.For people who used cannabis heavily before the age of 18, the risk of schizophrenia increased by 10.3 per cent, Poulton said.For those who used it heavily after 18 years-old, the risk increased by 4.7 per cent.This year, and for the first time in New Zealand, Fairfax Media is partnering with the Global Drug Survey to help create the largest and  most up-to-date snapshot of our drug and alcohol use, and to see how we compare to the rest of the world.http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/9453354/Cannabis-hikes-schizophrenia-risklast_img read more

ABS-CBN asks SC to stop, junk NTC’s closure order

first_imgThe NTC on Tuesday ordered ABS-CBN to cease the operations of several of its radio and television stations purportedly because of the company’s lack of a valid franchise from Congress. Its franchise renewal bills have been pending for years. (GMA News) In a petition for certiorari and prohibition, ABS-CBN asked the SC to issue a temporary restraining order against the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) directive that led to a signoff Tuesday evening, the day after the company’s franchise expired. “Our main argument is premised on due process and equal protection and the patent illegality of the cease and desist order,” Michelle Go, a lawyer for ABS-CBN, told GMA News. The petition asks the highest Philippine court to nullify and set aside the cease and desist order, arguing that the NTC acted with grave abuse of discretion and violated ABS-CBN’s rights to equal protection of the law and to due process, as well as the public’s right to information.center_img MANILA – ABS-CBN Corp. has asked the Supreme Court (SC) to stop and then nullify the cease and desist order that forced the media giant to go off the air for the first time since the Martial Law era.

Reds Management

first_imgThe Cincinnati Reds definitely chose a new direction for their baseball team.  With the hiring of David Bell, they went younger and with Bell I assume they will play a much more aggressive style of baseball.  After two laid back managers in Bryan Price and Jim Riggleman, we should see a more up-tempo brand of baseball.The Reds also hired two big-time assistants, Turner Ward and Derek Johnson.  Ward came from Los Angeles where he found a way to get Yasiel Puig to play team baseball and help the Dodgers get into the World Series.  Johnson was a pitching coach of the Milwaukee Brewers.  He obviously turned the Brewers pitching staff into one of the best in major league baseball.  All of these moves show that the Reds will be very aggressive this upcoming season.None of the above will help unless the Reds can go out and get pitching help.  Their bullpen was turned around last year, but their starting pitching was near the bottom for all major league baseball.  It should be an interesting upcoming season for the Reds.last_img read more

Mason’s move frustrates Laudrup

first_img He added: “All season I’ve said that after a game we have three or four chances to see things and then we can decide whether we thought it was or wasn’t. The referee only has two or three seconds . “But we are talking about decisions whereas what happened with the disallowed goal is against the rules. How on earth can you disallow a goal when the ball comes off an opponent? It’s like giving an offside after a throw-in! Everybody knows you cannot be offside after a throw-in. “Equally everybody knows you can never be offside if the ball comes from an opponent – and in this case it’s not coming from one opponent it’s coming from two! From the defender, to the goalkeeper and back to Roland. So how on earth can you disallow that goal?” Swansea midfielder Wayne Routledge tweeted: “Can’t even write what I want to say here or I’m definitely getting fined. Unbelievable! Watch the replays..” Even Baggies boss Steve Clarke admitted that the goal should have been given, saying: “We got a lucky break. It should have been given. It was a goal. I think it came off Ben Foster last so that is fortuitous.” Luke Moore put Swansea in front only for Romelu Lukaku to equalise with his 13th goal of the campaign before an own goal from Jonathan de Guzman earned Albion victory. Clarke added: “We got a lucky break but sometimes when you put in the effort, energy and quality we did into that game…I think we earned that little break. We deserved to win the game. Don’t be writing down that we didn’t deserve to win the game. I’m delighted because we came from behind.” Press Association Swansea boss Michael Laudrup slammed referee Lee Mason after he disallowed a last-gasp effort from Roland Lamah as his side went down 2-1 at West Brom.center_img Replays showed the ball struck Baggies goalkeeper Ben Foster and defender Gareth McAuley before substitute Lamah put the ball in the net. But Mason ruled Lamah was offside and West Brom hung on for their third win in four Barclays Premier League matches. Laudrup said: “I think after every game we’re always discussing decisions taken by the referees or the linesmen. Should penalties be given or not given? Should a card be given or not given? Was it too harsh or not? One thing or the other thing.” last_img read more

Meyler faces no action

first_img The referee, Craig Pawson, has told FA officials that he was looking directly at the incident which took place during Tuesday’s 3-1 win for United at Old Trafford. Under the rules allowing cases to be dealt with retrospectively, as the referee had a clear, unobstructed view it is not classed as the incident having not been seen by match officials, Press Association Sport understands. Hull City’s David Meyler will not be banned for the FA Cup final for his apparent stamp on Manchester United’s Adnan Januzaj after the Football Association decided not to take retrospective action against the Irish midfielder. United’s stand-in manager Ryan Giggs was incensed by the injury suffered to the 18-year-old winger. He said: “I didn’t see [the incident] but I have seen his leg, it goes from his knee to his ankle. It is the second time it has happened to him this season and it’s not great to see. “It is terrible, his leg. He needs protecting. He is a brilliant player, he is exciting and the authorities need to stamp down on it, whether that can happen now… but it was bad. I have not seen the stamp but I have seen his leg and it is bad. It is a joke.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
