There were a total of 47 people, including 24 Australians and several children, on the privately-owned island when the volcano exploded at 2.11pm local time on Monday. Six people have been confirmed dead and 30 survivors – 25 of them in a critical condition – are being treated in hospital. Of the 30, 27 have suffered burns to at least 30 per cent of their body, authorities say. “There are still some very, very seriously injured people in hospital. We’re not out of the woods yet,” NZ Police Minister Stuart Nash said this morning. “We’re working very closely with a number of agencies to ensure we get this identification right. There are a number of people in hospital who cannot communicate because they have significant burns not only to skin but to internal organs.” Eight people, presumed dead, remain on Whakaari/White Island but cannot be retrieved because further eruptions are predicted.

An online petition demanding that hospitals take consent before feeding formula milk to newborns has slowly gained momentum, crossing one lakh signatures. Started in 2017 by software engineer Jincy Varghese (33), the petition brought together several mothers and triggered a larger conversation on the blatant practice of feeding babies with powder milk soon after birth, thereby depriving them of mother’s first milk that contains rich nutrients and provides immunity. Ms. Varghese, a resident of Panvel, started the petition after her son was fed formula milk soon after birth. “I had a caesarean section but I was conscious throughout the procedure. My baby was shifted to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) soon after birth as doctors had to monitor his sugar levels. That’s when he was fed formula milk,” she said, adding that this was done despite the hospital having a human milk bank.Breast milk is the natural first food for babies that protects them from … [Read more...] about My baby, my decision: mothers unite in fight against hospitals
CAS said an “agreed-upon written transcript” from the hearing, including Sun’s testimony from Chinese into English, is being prepared to help the judging panel who heard the appeal in open court last month. “In view of these circumstances, the (verdict) is not expected to be issued before mid-January,” the court said. Sun is facing a ban from next year’s Tokyo Olympics if the three-judge panel decides he broke anti-doping rules by refusing to co-operate with officials who visited his home in China in September 2018. He disputed their credentials to take his blood and urine samples and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) appealed against a ruling by swimming governing body FINA to simply warn Sun over the confrontational incident. Lawyers and the three judges often had difficulty following proceedings, including cross-examination of Sun early in the 10-hour hearing in Switzerland as translation issues plagued the case. CAS rules allow parties to … [Read more...] about Sun Yang verdict delayed because of translation troubles
