Plaintiffs have the option to object or opt out of the settlement within 90 days following the notice date, according to court documents. “We believe that these meaningful and important changes go a long way toward strengthening our University,” Austin said. In a memo, Interim President Wanda Austin said the preliminary approval allows the settlement administrator to notify plaintiffs about their compensation, which ranges from $2,500 to $250,000. “This is a very important step forward in healing our community,” Austin wrote. “It is an important milestone for those former patients seeking certain resolution without reliving their painful experiences.” Gloria Allred, who represents 62 plaintiffs in the class-action, said she is against the settlement. Joseph Chen | Daily Trojan “This is a very important step forward in healing our community,” Austin said in the statement. “It is an important milestone for those former patients seeking certain resolution without reliving their painful experiences.” Additionally, it requested that USC submit all documentation about Tyndall’s tenure before moving forward with the settlement, the Daily Trojan previously reported. Two weeks ago, the University made public a 600-page report detailing decades of complaints against the former gynecologist and USC’s handling of his misconduct. “Awarding victims $2,500 to no more than $250,000, in my opinion, is inadequate compensation for the emotional distress that the victims suffered,” Allred wrote in a statement to the Daily Trojan. “I believe that most of more than 700 individual victims who have already filed suit in state court, including my 62 clients, will opt out of the class settlement if the settlement is approved by Judge Wilson.” A federal judge granted preliminary approval of the proposed $215 million class-action settlement between USC and alleged victims of former gynecologist George Tyndall Thursday. A final approval hearing is scheduled on Jan. 6, 2020, when the court will reexamine if the settlement terms are fair and reasonable. U.S. District Court Judge Stephen Wilson originally denied preliminary approval of the settlement in April, citing a lack of information and further amendments. The settlement provides tiered compensation to nearly 17,000 former patients. The court called for additional stipulations regarding widespread institutional reforms, such as appointing women’s health advocates, improving methods of reporting misconduct and increasing scrutiny of healthcare professionals, following the original proposed settlement.

Martin O’Neill’s side were beaten 1-0 at Celtic Park. Shaun Maloney’s brilliantly-taken goal in the 75th minute was enough for Scotland to claim a fully deserved win against an Irish side that struggled to create many chances on goal.Scotland keeper David Marshall was called on to make two good saves from Shane Long and from Aiden McGeady, but the closest Ireland came to getting an equaliser was deep into stoppage time when a free-kick by Robbie Brady was sent crashing off the crossbar by Scotland defender Grant Hanley.

Upton is expected to get days off more frequently than usual, at least initially, as Ausmus tries to “ease him in a little bit,” he said. The artificial turf at Toronto’s Rogers Centre is further reason that Upton may get a day off, or be the designated hitter, during the four-game series.The Angels will have to make a difficult roster decision to create a spot for Upton. Both Goodwin and Puello have performed well, and neither can be optioned. They also could make room by moving an infielder, like Wilfredo Tovar or Luís Rengifo, but that would leave them with no one on the bench who plays second, third or shortstop.They also could option Justin Bour, but Bour has homered in each of the two games he’s played since he’s come back. Bour fits as a platoon partner with Albert Pujols at first base because he hits left-handed.The Angels are also preparing for the return of Andrelton Simmons, perhaps by the weekend. Simmons, who had a Grade 3 ankle sprain, is scheduled to face live pitching early in the week and then do a rehab assignment.Related Articles ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Justin Upton, who was hurt just days before Opening Day, is finally set for his 2019 debut.Upton will be activated for the Angels game on Monday in Toronto.“It’ll be good to have him back,” Manager Brad Ausmus said. “Obviously he’s been an offensive performer for a long time. It’s a big bat to add to our lineup.”Although the Angels have gotten better than expected production out of Brian Goodwin and Cesar Puello, they nonetheless rank 26th in the majors with a .706 OPS out of left field. Last year Upton had an .808 OPS, and his career OPS is .826. Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros A normal rehab for a Grade 3 sprain would be eight to 12 weeks, and Simmons could be back in less than five weeks. Last year he had a Grade 2 sprain from slipping on the dugout steps, and he missed just 10 days. Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone “I don’t want to jinx him because he’s not all the way back, but it seems like two years in a row, with similar injuries, he’s come back a lot quicker than anticipated,” Ausmus said.ALSOTrevor Cahill, on the injured list because of a back problem, threw a bullpen session on Sunday and “looked good, felt good,” Ausmus said. Cahill is scheduled for another bullpen on Tuesday. The Angels haven’t decided yet if he’ll make a rehab start…The Angels became the first team since 2010 to have four straight victories by the same score.

Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netMANILA, Philippines—Magnolia guard Jio Jalalon denied that he and his teammates threw punches during Game 4 of the PBA Governors’ Cup Finals against Alaska Wednesday night at Smart Araneta Coliseum.Although the game was heated and had its physical moments, especially in the last three minutes when Mark Barroca hit Chris Banchero in the groin, there wasn’t any ejection or a long delay of play.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Furious Alex Compton says Magnolia played ‘dirty basketball’ in Game 4 Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

Liberian delegation posed with two of Lantmäteriet’s International Services staffs at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala, Sweden.By Arthur R. Tucker (Contributor)The Liberia Land Authority (LLA) and the Swedish Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registration Authority, Lantmäteriet, have recommitted to fully implement a five-year capacity-building project for inclusive Land Administration and Management, a release from the entity has said.According to the release, during the implementation of the project, LLA staff will receive short-term training locally and internationally to enable them carry out the activities associated with the project.Recently, a 15-member delegation from the LLA and the Mayor of Barclayville City, Grand Kru County, Madam Benetor Blamo visited Lantmäteriet in Sweden as part of a knowledge exchange program to prepare themselves for the full implementation of the project, which starts in July this year.While in Sweden, the Liberian delegation along with their Swedish counterparts agreed on some key activities that will be carried out during the project implementation, including women’s participation in land administration and management, whereas local government structures and municipalities will be capacitated to establish and enforce land use plans in accordance with the guidelines that the LLA will formulate.It was also agreed that Communication and Customer Service Units at the LLA will be equipped and shall work together so that those at home and abroad, who wish to process their land documents and to seek information on land can do so through the LLA website, and other electronic means.As part of the mission, the Liberian delegation visited several facilities and historical sites, including the Land Registration Center in Norrtälje, the Cadastral Services in Globen and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala to acquire and exchange knowledge on land information systems that exist in Liberia and Sweden.At a brief program marking the close of the two-week visit, Lantmäteriet, Deputy Director General, Anders Lundquist, who is expected to pay a four-day visit to Liberia this week, lauded the Liberian delegation for visiting Sweden, and reaffirmed his organization’s support to the LLA in achieving the desired outcomes of the project.On behalf of the Liberian delegation, the LLA Commissioner for Planning and Policy, Cllr. Kula L. Jackson, thanked Lantmäteriet for the training opportunity, which he said will go a long way in addressing those critical issues related to capacity-building in the land sector.In another development, the executive director of the Swedish based International Land and Forest Tenure Facility, Madam Nonette Royo, has assured authorities at the LLA that her organization will continue to provide technical assistance in the land sector of Liberia.By that, Madam Royo said it would ensure the successful implementation of the Land Rights Act, especially community land rights.She described the Liberia Land Rights Act as a milestone model that should serve as a mirror to many countries of the world that desire to undertake land reforms.Madam Royo pinpointed several international forums that Liberia can best showcase the trends that resulted in the formulation and promulgation of the Land Rights Act.She promised to address those potential concerns on how the LLA will continue to work with civil society organizations in the implementation of the Land Rights Act in rural communities.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Liam Porter from Raphoe is owner of Liam Porter Media, a PR business that works with a range of clients to offer a full suite of PR services. In his spare time he coaches youngsters mostly at Raphoe Town FC and Finn Harps Academy, but he’s also been known to lend a hand with St. Mary’s GAA Club in Convoy. Or indeed, you could find him asking questions at the local community table quiz or popping in to take a picture for the Raphoe boxing or running club – basically helping out whenever he can with his local community.(1) What is your favourite place in Donegal and why?There are so many to choose from and so many I love: Killydonnell Friary in Ramelton, Glenveagh, Ards Forest Park, Sliabh Liag, the list could go on. But if I had to be pressed into choosing one overall favourite, it’s closer to home for me and Beltany Stone Circle just outside Raphoe. I love the history of my home town and it always amazes me that this massive stone circle could have been built where it is, considering how long it has been standing. (2) If you could change one thing about Donegal what would it be?Honestly, I’d love to see somebody sit down and work out a traffic management plan for Letterkenny that gets traffic moving in and out of the town a lot better than it does.(3) Who is the one person that you look up to and why?I really couldn’t name just one because there are just so many! I find myself constantly in awe of all the brilliant volunteers we have in this county in sports clubs and community groups and charities. The work they do is immense and totally undervalued and I’d say every single week I’m inspired to try to follow the example they set. (4) What’s your happiest Christmas memory in Donegal?I’ve been blessed to have many amazing Christmas memories from my own childhood up to the present day. I think the ones that give me most joy when I think back, are in more recent times with my own daughters when we used to take Christmas photos every year. We had lots of fun doing that.(5) What has been Donegal’s proudest moment in recent years?It has to be the Donegal team winning the All-Ireland in 2012. That gave everyone in the county such a lift and Donegal was a brilliant place to be that entire summer – and then after that famous day in September, for the rest of the year too. (Followed closely by BJ’s goal against Limerick and the Harps promotion that it led to!)(6) If you found a magic wand that allowed you to grant one wish, whatwould it be? I’d wish that all my family and friends could live for the rest of their days without worry, stress or pain. Happily ever after I suppose.(7) What is your favourite Donegal-made product?I have to say that I don’t think people actually realise the extent of the talent we have in the county or the range of outstanding products that are actually made right here in Donegal. Asked to pick a favourite from among all of them I simply couldn’t, so instead I’ll pick my own book ‘Dance In The Rain’ – written, designed and printed right here in Donegal – because I am still truly very proud of it.(8) Who is Donegal’s greatest ambassador around the world and why? I don’t think I’ve been around enough of the world to know who people abroad really know from the county.I think Daniel O’Donnell has always been a fantastic amabassador for Donegal, but then again I also think that Seamus Coleman, Michael Murphy, Shay Given and Packie Bonner have all been terrific as well.(9) What has been the biggest compliment you’ve ever received?I took a punt and asked the love of my life if she’d marry me – and she said yes! Still can hardly believe it.(10) Who is your favourite Donegal sportsperson of all time?Well I have to say that coming from a small place, to have a three-time Olympian from the same wee town is amazing, so Chloe Magee is right up there for me in terms of what she has achieved.My favourite though has to be Shay Given. I watched him play for Lifford teams as a youngster. I was at home the day my late father got the call to say Shay was called into the Irish U16 squad and later I was in the old Landsdowne Road, for his debut for the Irish senior team. To see him go all the way to the World Cup, to play week in and week out in the Premier League and so many times for Ireland was just amazing. Best of all, he remained always so down to earth and approachable and he never forgot his roots here in Donegal. An absolute gentleman and a sporting hero for sure.(11) What is your favourite Donegal restaurant?I don’t really get out often enough to eat to really have a favourite. Maybe that will be the New Year’s resolution for 2018!(12) What is your favourite Donegal saying or expression?Up the Harps.(13) What is the biggest challenge facing the people of Donegal today?I don’t think there is any one challenge that affects everybody. It’s more a case that everybody faces different challenges every day, some bigger than others. I suppose the biggest challenge is the test of resilience those tests bring. Whatever they are, those tests, they will pass. Nothing lasts forever. It’s temporary. Be patient.(14) What is your favourite food that you associate with Donegal?The spuds!(15) Is there anything that really annoys you about Donegal or its people?Some of the stuff you hear from the sidelines when young people are playing sport.(16) Do you have a favourite local band?The musical talent we have in this county is outstanding. I love the stuff I’ve heard from Little Hours – but also check out the brilliant Without Willow and my old neighbour and current quiz adversary Dean Maywood has a top notch sound that kinda reminds me of Josh Ritter!(17) If you had a million euro to improve something in Donegal what would it be?I don’t know where I’d even start. I think I’d see first if I could try to distribute it a bit wider, give some to all the sporting and community clubs in Raphoe and some to Finn Harps and maybe some charities like the Childhood Cancer Foundation.(18) Where’s the most unusual place you’ve logged on to Donegal Daily?Standing on top of The Rocky Steps in Philadelphia.(19) Is there anything about Donegal that you are very proud of?I think the people of Donegal are brilliant. They are friendly and generous and in my experience they are just downright really good.(20) What is the most rewarding thing about what you do?I get to meet so many interesting, resilient, talented, determined people who all have amazing stories and who are working so hard to make Donegal a brilliant place to be. They are the small businesses who are the lifeblood of the economy of this county and it is real a joy to work with them and to try to help them.My Donegal – with PR man (and football coach) Liam Porter was last modified: December 30th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Liam PorterMY DONEGAL
