Peru’s Fujimori hospitalized for neurological and lung issues

first_imgTopics : Aguinaga said he had “told [the clinic’s doctors] to have the neurologist take a look” at Fujimori, who would also undergo a lung scan.Although the former leader’s lung “is not ventilating perfectly, it is under control,” said Aguinaga.Prison doctors realized Sunday night that Fujimori was not breathing well, so they gave him oxygen. Shortly thereafter, they decided he should be transferred to the clinic.A source close to the family told AFP earlier that Fujimori had been transferred to the clinic for neurological issues, facial paralysis and an increase in blood pressure. “He is under observation in [the clinic’s] intermediate care unit,” where he has been hospitalized several times in previous years, the source said.Fujimori, who was in office from 1990-2000, was pardoned in December 2017 on humanitarian grounds by then-president Pedro Pablo Kuczynski.Critics said the move was in exchange for Fujimori’s son helping Kuczynski avoid impeachment.The former president, who is of Japanese descent, has been held at a police base east of Lima since the pardon was revoked by a Peruvian court in October 2018.Fujimori’s last public statement was made five days ago, expressing regret that his daughter — 44-year-old opposition leader Keiko — had been sentenced to 15 months in prison for corruption charges.center_img Peru’s jailed ex-president Alberto Fujimori was hospitalized Monday in Lima after suffering neurological and lung problems, his family doctor told AFP.Fujimori, 81, is serving a 25-year jail sentence for ordering two massacres by death squads in 1991 and 1992.”[The former president] is under evaluation,” said his doctor, Alejandro Aguinaga, after visiting Fujimori in the Peruvian-Japanese Centennial Clinic.last_img read more

Wintershall Dea comes up dry in Norwegian Sea appraisal well

first_imgOil and gas company Wintershall Dea is in the process of concluding the drilling of an appraisal well on the 6604/5-1 (Balderbrå) gas discovery in the northern Norwegian Sea. The well is dry. Scarabeo 8 rig; Author: SP MacThe appraisal well 6604/5-2 S is located in PL 894 where Wintershall Dea is the operator.The well has been drilled about 113 kilometers southwest of the Aasta Hansteen field in the northern part of the Norwegian Sea.The 6604/5-1 gas discovery was proven in Upper Cretaceous reservoir rocks (the Springar Formation) in 2018. Prior to drilling the appraisal well, the operator estimated resources at between 7 and 19 billion standard cubic meters (Sm3) of recoverable gas and between 1 and 3 million Sm3 of recoverable condensate.The objective of the well was to delineate the Balderbrå discovery. The well encountered the Springar Formation in three intervals totaling 210 meters, with a total of about 140 meters of sandstone with poor reservoir quality. Only traces of gas were encountered, and pressure communication with the discovery well has not been confirmed. The well is classified as dry.Resource estimates for the discovery have been reduced to between 3 and 8 billion Sm3 of recoverable gas and between 0.2 and 1 million Sm3 of recoverable condensate. The licensees will assess the discovery together with other discoveries in the area for further follow-up.Extensive volumes of data have been collected and samples have been taken.This is the third exploration well in production license 894, which was awarded in APA 2016.The well 6604/5-2 S was drilled to a vertical depth of 3816 meters and a measured depth of 4121 meters below sea level, and the well was terminated in the Springar Formation in the Upper Cretaceous.Water depth at the site is 1207 meters. The well will be permanently plugged and abandoned.The well 6604/5-2 S was drilled by the Scarabeo 8 drilling rig, which will now drill wildcat well 6406/3-10 in production license 836 S in the Norwegian Sea, where Wintershall Dea Norge is also the operator.The oil company has already received safety consent to use the Saipem-owned Scarabeo 8 rig to drill this well.Spotted a typo?

How to pick a time to have difficult conversations.

first_img Sharing is caring! 36 Views   no discussions Share By Shauna ZamarripaPick the right time to have a difficult conversation. Photo credit:, fnavarro My home is full of very high-strung, alpha personalities. Because of this, difficult conversations are difficult to have in a productive manner; especially when a difficult conversation is one rife with a difficulty or problem you are experiencing with another member in the household. Over the years, I have constructed a plan to help me have difficult conversations that usually don’t end in door slamming and silent treatments….well, okay, at least half the time, it isn’t perfect, but it’s a good start. Use what I’ve learned to help you time those less than stellar moments for challenging conversations in your own life.1.Outline what you want to sayIt helps me a lot when I outline what I want to say. This keeps me on target and on point. For instance, if I want to say, “The way you constantly belittle everything I try to do isn’t helpful to our relationship,” and outline the ways in which it affects me along with productive (not finger pointing) examples, I can stay on message.2.Write it downSimilar to when I am writing an article or a blog, I write it down; almost like a speech. Okay, in my case, I type it out, but it’s still the same concept. Choose your weapon; pen and paper or fingers and keyboard. There really isn’t a wrong answer. Getting your frustrations out on paper not only help you figure out what you want to say, but also help you vet the frustrations, and evaluate if your “complaint” is a meaningless gripe, or something a little more valid.3.Lean it outI am a “bottler”. In a sense, I take things in, bottle them all up and tend to explode like Mt. Vesuvius, going off on tangents and missing the point of my message –it doesn’t help that I’m hot tempered either. Once I’ve written down what I want to say, using my outline as a guide, I can lean it out. Then I print it out. Having something in front of me to reference, helps me say what I need to say in a very straightforward, direct manner. (Is there really any other way?)4. Pick some “one on one” timeLet me tell you, in a family of five, you don’t want to have a conversation in a group setting; someone either takes you off topic, or will defend whomever you have an issue with. Go for a ride in the car, take a walk, go to the park, but whatever you do, make it one on one.5. Choose your location…carefullyMake your location conversation appropriate. You don’t want eavesdroppers or “Nosey Nellys” overhearing sensitive family material that gives them fodder for gossip cannons. Select a venue that’s appropriate for a conversation. For instance, if you want to discuss sexual awareness with your teenager, a local restaurant might not be the best location.Five steps to one solution: A conversation that can be had in a calm, direct format, where you are heard and the offending party is given an opportunity to respond calmly and in kind. I can’t guarantee that it will work for every conversation, or for every personality type, but it’s worked pretty well for me, and it’s definitely a method more folks should try to learn how to handle confrontation and difficult communication more effectively. From there, I wish you good luck!Source: Yahoo Shine Magazine Sharecenter_img Tweet Share LifestyleRelationships How to pick a time to have difficult conversations. by: – July 14, 2011last_img read more

Chile cancels APEC summit hosting – Palace

first_img Pinera said in an interview with Agence France-Presse that “common sense” had dictated the decision to withdraw from the APEC summit as it struggle to restore order there.

Chile is grappling with its worst social crisis in decades that shows little sign of abating despite Pinera announcing a raft of measures aimed at placating protesters./PN “This has been a very difficult decision, a decision that has been deeply painful because we know exactly how important APEC and COP are for Chile and the world,” said Pinera.center_img Had the APEC Summit pushes through, the presence of President Rodrigo Duterte was also doubtful as his attendance will depend on the advice of his doctor after figuring in a motorcycle accident last week. “When a father has problems, he must always prioritize his family over other options. The same goes for a president, he must always put his own compatriots first, ahead of any other considerations,” he added. “Per President Pinera of Chile, the APEC has been cancelled due to the ongoing turmoil in that country as related to me by Chief Protocol Robert Borje,” Panelo said in a statement.last_img read more

“Stop the comedy and fight well”- Nii Lante Vanderpuye tells Gameboy Tagoe

first_imgMember of Parliament for Odododidoo Constituency, Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye, has advised Emmanuel “Gameboy” Tagoe to eliminate the shenanigans he usually gets involved in and stay focused during bouts if he will be a world star.Tagoe became the new International Boxing Federation International (IBF) and World Boxing Organisation (WBO) Global Lightweight title holder after he defeated Vyacheslav Gusev on February 25 in Accra.Tagoe is relocating to the United States after signing  a 3-year promotional deal with Lou DiBella’s DiBella Promotions and he is expected to get more opportunities at capturing the major boxing crowns in the lightweight division.However, Hon. Nii Lante Vanderpuye, who is a former Sports Minister, believes the big time may elude Tagoe if he does not walk away from excessive showboating and complacency.“Gameboy Tagoe is my boy and so, I give him a lot of support. He is a very classy boxer but he is sometimes over confident. He thinks that he is unbeatable. He has lost once in his career and that should have been a lesson for him,” he said to Godfred Akoto Boafo on Citi TV’s current affairs programme, Face To Face.He continued:“He enters the ring and sees his opponents as people has can toy with but I have told him to be careful in his weight class. There are tough South American and Asian boxers in there and he needs to be more serious.Tagoe has quick hands. He is intelligent and smart but he does not have the punching power that is needed. So, what he needs to do is let his hands always work. He has to reduce comedy and focus. People need to fear him for his work in the ring.”Tagoe heads to America with a fight record of 30 wins, 1 loss with 14 knockouts with his latest victory being a 120-107, 118 – 109, 119 – 108 over Gusev at the Bukom Boxing Arena. –By: Nathan Quao/ read more
