‘Schizophrenia at its very depths’ drove mother to kill eight children

first_imgStuff co.nz 4 May 2017Family First Comment: Myth – Marijuana never killed anyone…. “Along the way the court heard details of the 40-year-old’s descent into “schizophrenia at its very depths”, likely exacerbated by years of heavy cannabis use, and culminating in her being in a psychotic state when she killed eight children under the age of 15…. The court heard cannabis was commonly linked to the onset of schizophrenia in those already vulnerable to the illness.” #saynopetodopeThe first to die was the family’s pet duck, killed in an attempt to rid the house of evil.By then, Raina Thaiday had already been on a cleaning frenzy for a week, scrubbing the ceilings of her Australian home and tossing possessions out into the yard in a bid to “cleanse” the house.But it was when she heard a dove’s call, which she interpreted as a sign from God, that she decided she must “kill her children in order to save them”.The Mental Health Court of Queensland last month ruled, in a decision not made public until Thursday, that Raina Mersane Ina Thaiday was of unsound mind when she stabbed to death seven of her children and a niece in her home in Cairns on December 19, 2014.“To her way of thinking at the time, what she was doing was the best thing she could do for her children. She was trying to save them,” Justice Jean Dalton said, exempting the mother from trial and confining her to mental health treatment.Along the way the court heard details of the 40-year-old’s descent into “schizophrenia at its very depths”, likely exacerbated by years of heavy cannabis use, and culminating in her being in a psychotic state when she killed eight children under the age of 15.The court heard cannabis was commonly linked to the onset of schizophrenia in those already vulnerable to the illness.Thaiday kicked a 10-20 cone a day habit in the months before the slaughter, leading psychiatrists to question whether her “psychosis” was a form of withdrawal, before mostly rejecting the notion.Instead, Dr Jane Phillips and Dr Donald Grant agreed it was more likely the illness began to affect her while she was still using cannabis, causing to her to develop “religious delusions” that “forced her to live a clean life”.“Altogether it amounts to a very convincing body of evidence that Mrs Thaiday was psychotic at the time of the killing,” Justice Dalton said.She ruled Thaiday had the defence of unsoundness of mind available to her and issued a forensic order for ongoing mental health treatment.READ MORE: http://www.stuff.co.nz/world/australia/92210576/schizophrenia-at-its-very-depths-drove-mother-to-kill-eight-childrenKeep up with family issues in NZ.

The club of one billion euros: Mou, Pep, Ancelotti …

first_imgIn second place is Carlo Ancelotti. The Italian was Mourinho’s successor on the white bench and they brought him to, by then, most expensive signing in football history, Gareth Bale. Carletto, with a long career in the best European benches since it began in 1995, He has enjoyed several of the most expensive investments in addition to Bale as Fernando Torres, for which Chelsea paid 58 million euros to Liverpool.The podium is completed by Pep Guardiola, whose single-player investment record was by Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Barcelona spent almost 70 million on the Swede who never fit Pep’s idea and would only last one campaign. The Catalan accumulates a total investment of 1,168 million euros between Barcelona, ​​Bayern Munich and Manchester City, where he has paid authentic millions, especially to strengthen his defense. This billion-dollar club is closed by Pellegrini. The until a few weeks ago West Ham coach led the last great reform of Real Madrid from the bench in 2009 when he brought Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Benzema and Xabi Alonso the same summer among others. The Portuguese was his record signing but the figure also increased in his seasons at Manchester City and with the hammers to make a total of 1077 million euros.

Mourinho increased this figure in a substantial way in Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United with Paul Pogba as his most expensive signing in a top where Modric or Didier Drogba also appear.last_img read more

The calendar prepares for a second semester without respite

first_imgEI calendar has become in the big puzzle for the leagues and UEFA to end this season. They are preparing different stages, from the most optimistic (return at the end of April) until more pessimistic (end in July). The latter would cause a domino effect for the following season, forcing the clubs and UEFA to tighten the belt and change their plans, especially summer ones.In the next six months we will find a overbooking of competitions. Starting in July, since it is probable that the current season ends in the first fortnight of said month (It is already being studied how to extend the contracts that end on June 30), which would lead to delaying the rest of the dates. The first to jump through the air will be the preseason. Players usually go on vacation in June. For this year, everything indicates that the preseason will not start until the first of August. Since players by agreement have a minimum of 21 consecutive days of vacation.Starting in August would leave just two weeks of preseason for the teams if LaLiga maintains its start around August 15 and 16, as usual. It could even be delayed by a week or two, but it would further collapse the calendar (there would be no free Wednesday to recover games postponed until March or April 2021) if the current format is to be maintained. This would increase the risk of injury to players, unless the limit of footballers per squad is extended. This would present a new problem: the more players, the more spending on salaries. It would upset the teams’ accounts, already affected by this break. Such a short preseason will also impossible to perform stages by USA, China and other countries as usual. Tours that contributed great income to the clubs, mainly for those who participated in the International Champions Cup. Although it will mean the resurgence of Spanish summer tournaments, which have languished in recent times, One of the alternatives to extend the preseason would be to compress the campaign. Door that has already opened several presidents of different federations, including that of the Spanish. “If it can end on June 30, perfect. No, it It will end later. And if later you have to start later or with another format, it will be done, but agreed by everyone, “Rubiales said last Tuesday. It could be a league with a regular phase and then a playoff for the title and relegation.The one that will have to tighten the belt and change its format is UEFA. Both for the Champions League and Europa League qualifying phase. They usually start on June 29 and end at the end of August. Two months for ten games. Now there will have to be six, only in August. Reducing the qualification phase would allow the Champions League to maintain its group phase format and start in September as usual. What it can do are the final heats and play a single match. The Euro Cup has been relocated and set for June 11, which leaves no room for maneuver and a schedule that will not give a break.last_img read more
