AIDS-free. He states that this can be done by working together as a team to increase the pace and scale of HIV prevention as well as treatment efforts for different people that have this condition around the world.
According to Mr. Clinton, one of the major problems in putting an end to AIDS epidemic is early detection. “New data from 51 countries suggests 70 percent of HIV-related deaths could have been prevented. The evidence continues to build that early treatment helps prevent further transmissions”, he stated on Wednesday in the 20th International AIDS Conference held in Melbourne.
There are more than 35 million people suffering from HIV around the globe out of which only 13 million of them have an access to ART (antiretroviral treatment). Annually, two million people get infected with this disease, including 20,000 children and infants.
“We are here on this 20th anniversary of the conference to celebrate so much of the progress that has been made because the world has made the right decision to fight against AIDS and to create a generation free of it,” added Mr. Clinton that made the participants applause enthusiastically.
Arizona: The condemned inmate of Arizona snorted for around an hour and a half at the time of his execution of Wednesday. He then died in an episode, adding the scrutiny surrounding death penalty.
Tom Horne, the attorney general of Arizona stated that Joseph Rudolph Wood’s death was announced at 3:49 PM, approximately two hours after his execution began.
The lawyers of Wood filed an emergency appeal to the Supreme Court of United States as the execution was in progress. They demanding it to be stopped, stated that Wood was « gasping and snorting for more than an hour. »
According to the reports, Justice Anthony M. Kennedy did not accept the appeal that was made half an hour after the death of Wood.
Wood gasped for more than 600 times before dying. According to Dale Baich, the defense lawyer, the execution was carried on in a careless manner and the court should have given at least 10 minutes to the victim.
On the other hand, the victims’ family members stated that they had no problems with the progress of the execution.
Richard Brown, one of the witnesses of the murders, said, « This man conducted a horrifying murder and you guys are going, ‘Let’s worry about the drugs.”
It may have been a year since Paul DeWolf was murdered in his bedroom, but for his family, it may as well have been yesterday. With no resolution in the continuing court case, the family will commemorate Paul’s death with some family members visiting his grave at Fort Custer National Cemetery in Augusta. Other family members will visit Ann Arbor to meet with University of Michigan medical school staff and students who knew Paul, and spend time with the police investigators who worked on the case.
Paul DeWolf was killed in what appears to have been one of several break-ins carried out by three men that night. He was shot once when he approached the gunman upon waking to find the three men in his bedroom at the Phi Rho Sigma fraternity. His body was discovered the next day when he did not turn up for work at a local medical center. All three have been arrested and are currently standing trial. Although the case has been adjourned until September, the suspects remain in jail with no bail granted. Stolen items and forensic evidence linked the men to the scene, but police are unable to give further comment as the case is ongoing.
A recent trip to a favorite family vacation spot near Lake Michigan as well as the upcoming anniversary has made this a difficult month for the DeWolf family. Instead of watching their son enjoying the beach, chasing seagulls with a remote control car as he had in years gone by, the family is remembering the life that was taken a year ago. Paul would have been a newly qualified doctor by now, about to join the United States Air Force. In his memory, the family is setting up a scholarship fund for the U-M medical school.
The day will be an emotional one for family and friends as they reflect on the stolen future of a much-loved son and brother.
This has been the second time this week that rockets have been found in one of the schools in Gaza. According to the organization, “Today, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip.”
Right after the discovery of the rockets, UNRWA staff was made to leave the premises, leaving them with no confirmation about the exact number of rockets found there. The school is located between two different UNRWA schools that, at present, accommodate around 1,500 displaced individuals, internally.
Just like it happened last time when missiles were discovered in another school earlier, UNRWA stated that it, “strongly and unequivocally condemns the group or groups responsible for this flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law.”
The recent discovery of rockets made the Israeli officials furious. Yigal Palmor, the spokesperson for Foreign Ministry, told The Times of Israel, “How many more schools will have to be abused by Hamas missile squads before the international community will intervene. How many times can it turn its head the other way and pretend that it just doesn’t see?”
Hamas fired a rocket at the main airport of Israel, leading to a ban on all the flights from U.S. and several Canada and Europe flights as well, as the aviation authorities were shocked to see a civilian jetliner being shot down over Ukraine.
However, the officials in Israel stated that Ben Gurion Airport was secured and sage and hence there was no reason to make the terrorists happy by halting the flights from different countries.
After the attack in Gaza Strip, a soldier has still been missing, increasing the possibility of his abduction, which has complicated the diplomatic efforts taken by various authorities to put an end to this two week conflict between Israel and Hamas.
More than 2,000 rockets have been fired by the Palestinian militants towards the Israel right from the beginning of the conflict, which started on 8th of July. However, thanks to the ‘Iron Dome’ defense system of Israeli military, many of the rockets were shot out in the sky itself, making them harmless or less harmful on the ground.
The rocket attack that took place on Tuesday was very close to the airport, as reported by Luba Samri, the police spokeswoman.
