Both mother and baby were doing well “and nothing was expected to go wrong”.Ms Delahunt (34) from Borrisoleigh Co Tipperary, wept as she recounted the events leading up to the stillborn birth of her daughter Mary Kate Kelly at the Maternity Hospital in Limerick, on May 28 2013.Before she started her evidence, Ms Delahunt asked if she could pass around a photo of Mary Kate “so everyone knows why we are here”.Ms Delahunt was a patient with consultant gynacologist Dr Mark Skehan in Limerick but on May 21, 2013, she was working in Portlaoise when she sought help regarding her concerns over her baby’s reduction in activity in the womb.She learned of four previous infant deaths at the same hospital in Portlaoise after watching a Prime Time investigation programme.Ms Delahunt told the inquest how she and her partner Oliver Kelly had been trying for many years to start a family and were overjoyed when they finally conceived with the help of fertility treatment.The pregnancy continued as normal until 34 weeks, when Ms Delahunt became concerned about lack of foetal movement. Dr Skehan said that he had seen Ms Delahunt one month earlier and all was well and “nothing was expected to go wrong”.On May 21, 2013, she went to the Maternity Assessment Unit (MAU) in Portlaoise hospital, five minutes from the school where she works as a secondary teacher as she was worried about her baby.She was monitored on CTG, a cardio monitor which gives a trace or graph of the baby’s foetal movements and an ultrasound was carried out.Registered midwife Sally Hanford told the inquest how she aired her concerns to the on-call Registrar Dr Chuck Ugezu about three unprovoked decelerations in the baby’s heart rate as picked up in Ms Delahunt’s CTG trace.Dr Ugezu said it was unnecessary to repeat the trace which he said was normal for this period of pregnancy and he performed an ultrasound scan which he said was fine.Ms Hanford said she told Dr Ugezu that he could not stand over the trace and they needed to contact consultant obstetrician Dr Miriam Doyle who was on duty in the maternity ward to review the trace.Ms Delahunt was subsequently discharged and told to keep a check of foetal movements overnight, ahead of her scheduled anti natal appointment in Limerick, the following morning.When she went for the appointment, she was told by midwives in Limerick that they could find not find a heartbeat on the scan, and that’s when she knew her baby girl was gone.“I just wanted them to deliver the baby straight away. I didn’t want to be carrying around a baby bump with a dead baby inside and people thinking I was going to have a healthy baby.”She had to wait six more days before she finally gave birth to baby Mary Kate.Dr Chuck Ugezu, a former registrar at The Midland Regional Hospital in Portlaoise, apologised for the “understandable upset caused”. He also acknowledged he should have insisted she be admitted on the day she presented at Portlaoise, for further observations and for steroid injections and further CTG traces.Consultant Obstetrician Dr Miriam Doyle said she had no recollection of Ms Delahunt on May 21, 2013 or speaking to midwife Hanford about her case. She said that Ms Delahunt should have been admitted.She also agreed that if she had been kept in hospital, the baby would have born been alive, although it was uncertain how healthy.During the second day of evidence, Dr Skehan said he agreed that Amy Delahunt should have been immediately admitted to Portlaoise hospital.Many of the staff in Limerick were in tears over the death of little Mary Kate and all they could do was “help the mother and try and get through the situation. It is terribly sad and quite difficult in the hospital when there is such an occurrence”.Pathologist, Dr Peter Kelehan, said the cause of death was uncertain but delayed maturation of the placenta, a lateral insertion and hyper coiling of the coil could have contributed.The jury returned a verdict medical misadventure and a number of recommendations were made including that HSE promote lifelong learning amongst medical staff; maternity medical staff should receive adequate and ongoing CTG trace training; the HSE national policy on open disclosure should be implemented in full; there should be clear written instructions on the escalation of care; that patients with non-reassuring CTG traces or with concerns over foetal movements should not be discharged from hospital unless done so by a consultant; expectant mothers discharged from hospital should be given clear written instructions on monitoring foetal movement and that the HSE should publish and be obliged to adhere to adequate staffing levels in all hospitals.Speaking afterwards, the parents of Mary Kate Kelly had these comments.

He’s run well at a mile and a quarter.” Flamboyant won the Grade II San Marcos at a mile and a quarter in 2016.Asked if a mile and a half marathon was “a jockey’s race,” Gallagher quipped, “It’s a jockey’s race as long as they have the horse.”Brice Blanc, who rode Flamboyant in this year’s San Marcos, says he could have had better racing luck when beaten just 2 ½ lengths.“I got fanned out, but otherwise had a perfect trip,” said the native of Lyon, France. “The rider inside me kept moving out and pushed me a little bit, but my horse ran well anyway.“It’s going to be tough to beat Ashleyluvssugar, but if Flamboyant takes to the distance, I really have a good shot, I think.”The San Luis Rey, the ninth and final race: Inordinate, Corey Nakatani, 8-1; Power Foot, Kent Desormeaux, 15-1; Flamboyant, Brice Blanc, 6-1; Ashleyluvssugar, Gary Stevens, 5-2; Liam the Charmer, Victor Espinoza, 12-1; Syntax, Rafael Bejarano, 15-1; Buster Douglas, Santiago Gonzalez, 30-1; Papacoolpapacool, Edwin Maldonado, 10-1; Texas Ryano, Joe Talamo, 7-2; Itsinthepost, Tyler Baze, 5-1; Some in Tieme, Tiago Pereira, 30-1; and Site Read, Stewart Elliott, 30-1.

The lightly raced son of Smart Strike trained by Michael McCarthy for Mr. and Mrs. W.K. Warren Jr. bobbled at the start of his last race but closed from ninth and last to win anyway.“This distance is exactly what he wants,” Espinoza said of Liam the Charmer, bred byRon and Deborah McAnally. “The first time I rode him, at a mile and a sixteenth, it was too short for him (he raced willingly but finished fourth). He came back at a mile and a quarter and it was an ideal distance.“He broke a little slow but still won easy. I think a mile and a half is definitely going tohelp him.”ESPINOZA SAYS FAMILIARITY WOULD HELP ARROGATE, SMITHVictor Espinoza knows his way around Meydan Racecourse whether the saddle is on properly or not.Last year the Hall of Fame nominee who turns 45 on May 23 piloted California Chrome to victory in the $10 million Dubai World Cup despite riding with a saddle that slipped early on in the mile and a quarter race.Espinoza will be watching from afar Saturday when Arrogate is favored to vanquish 13 rivals in the World Cup under Mike Smith, no stranger to the Meydan course, although he is winless in his lone try in the lucrative event.Espinoza says it helps to have ridden over the course at least once before a race like the World Cup.“Things change,” Espinoza said, reflecting on what a difference a year makes for him. “Last year I won the race; now, I’m watching it. Everything is different about that track except the distance. That’s the same everywhere you ride. In Dubai you’re competing against a lot of different horses and you really don’t know how they’re going to run.“As for me, when I was there, I was just guessing what all the horses and jockeys were going to do. I just did my thing and I think that was best. If a jockey tries to study every single horse in the race, he’s really going to get confused.“I didn’t worry about any other horse or study anything. I just broke out of there and did my thing, but I think it helps a lot if a jockey has at least one race over that surface before the big race. Any other track in the world, it doesn’t matter.“It took me twice to really nail it, but the first race helped me a lot when I won last year. That was a bonus.” TOP NOTCH SHOULD FANCY A MILE ON SUNDAY J.

People are gawking at people in the London Zoo, each probably wondering what side of the cage they belong on. In one of the primate exhibits, eight scantily clad white people are on display, reports AP (see MSNBC and Yahoo). Wearing fig leaves pinned onto their swimsuits, they play, they scratch, they groom each other, they wave to the onlookers. The idea is to show that humans are nothing special, but just like other animals. Unlike the apes and chimpanzees in the other primate cages, however, the humans get to go home at night. The stunt is drawing visitors who had never visited the zoo. Some viewers were disappointed to find the humans wearing clothes; didn’t fig leaves come from the Genesis tradition? they wondered. Children, confused by the message of the display, have been overheard asking, “Why are there people in there?” An apocryphal story has one of the chimpanzees asking, “Am I my keeper’s brother?”At least they’re using white people this time (see articles by Carl Wieland and Jerry Bergman). Mark Looy at Answers in Genesis couldn’t keep silence any longer, especially when he had a Londoner on staff, Dr. Monty White, to interpret the zoo’s actions in light of Darwinian theory. The Darwin Party leaders need to give the rest of us a demonstration. They should get into the cage and show us how to act like a primate – where to scratch, how to shriek and club each other, how to draw figures of prey on the wall, and how to make rock music. After we lock the door and take the key, we’ll promise to take good care of them (feed them all the bananas they want, etc.) as we laugh all the way to the school board meeting.(Visited 16 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
dan rowinski Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… “The thing that really stood out for me was how American the NSTIC proposal is,” Blakley said. “Spain has, since 2006, has had an electronic identity card for all citizens. A number of the conversations I had with businesses and government entities is to how to get businesses to accept an identity credential that was produced by the government. NSTIC frames the problem exactly in the opposite way.”There are a number of ways the Identity Ecosystem could manifest itself. From a “smart card” – digital identity – that houses your trusted identity, to smart grid authentication, to the ability to have bankcards or university ID cards validated as Identity Ecosystem-approved credentials. The implementation of NSTIC could force some companies, like Facebook, to change the way it does business. Overall NSTIC is an ambitious agenda set out to create a more secure Web. For the idea to come to fruition it will take the cooperation of all the primary stakeholders involved, from the federal government to the tech companies and most importantly, the user. “NSTIC paints a utopian picture of a user-centric identity management system in a business environment that does not commoditize on identity,” said Aaron Titus, the privacy director of the Liberty Coalition in a conference call April 18. “Of course, we support that vision but success is far from assured.” There are four guiding principles that govern the notion of the Identity Ecosystem:1. Identity solutions will be privacy-enhancing and voluntary2. Identity solutions will be secure and resilient3. Identity solutions will be interoperable4. Identity solutions will be cost-effective and easy to useThat stipulation comes as a big sigh of relief for some advocates and pundits who feared a Big Brother approach that would be mandated by the federal government. NSTIC is designed to allow the private sector to carve out the parameters Identity Ecosystem.“Only the private sector has the ability to build and operate the complete Identity Ecosystem, and the final success of the Strategy depends upon private-sector leadership and innovation,” the report says.That is a different approach from other countries, like Spain, where Bob Blakely, VP, distinguished analyst, and agenda manager for IT1 Identity and Privacy Strategies Service at Gartner, spent time earlier this year and noticed the complete opposite approach. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Government#NYT#security#web An example from the report:Mary is tired of remembering dozens of user names and passwords, so she obtains a digital credential from her Internet service provider that is stored on a smart card. Now that she has the smart card, she is also willing to conduct more sensitive transactions, like managing her healthcare, online. One morning, she inserts the smart card into her computer, and uses the credential on it to “run” some errands.The plan outlines the strategy for the Identity Ecosystem, which it says will be completely voluntary. Neither the federal government nor corporations can mandate that users sign up for the Identity Ecosystem; it is designed to ensure anonymity on the Web, especially for users that could be harmed if their true identity was known. “The government will neither mandate that individuals obtain an Identity Ecosystem credential nor that companies require Identity Ecosystem credentials from consumers as the only means to interact with them,” the report says. On April 15 the Obama Administration released its official report on a plan to safeguard online identities across the Internet that will protect individuals and entities and create a secure backbone on which to do business on the Web.The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) will be a department within the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) that will work with the private sector to give Internet users a secure identity. The idea is to create an “Identity Ecosystem” – “an online environment where individuals and organizations will be able to trust each other because they follow agreed upon standards to obtain and authenticate their digital identities,” according to the report.
