Joe Russo’s Almost Dead has been tearing it up recently, as evidenced by their smokin’ New Orleans run at the Joy Theater on the heels of their arena debut in Colorado earlier in the month. Clearly, the group has been thinking of new ways to innovate and keep the fan experience fresh. Yesterday, the band announced their new partnership with nugs.net to allow fans to stream their live shows.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Ends New Orleans Run With A Bang [Photos]However, to those of us who live for Almost Dead’s soundboards on archive.org, fret not. The band will continue to release their shows for free download and streaming via archive.org. “Our intent is to duplicate our “Band Released” content that currently exists on Archive.org on nugs.net as well. As we record, mix & master more shows, they too will find their traditional home on Archive as well as a new home at http://nugs.net/app/,” said a statement on Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s Facebook page.To coincide with this announcement and to prove the group was serious about still releasing all their soundboards for free, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead released their recent New Orleans shows on May 6th and 7th from the Joy Theatre.

Euthanasia Prevention Coalition 21 January 2018Family First Comment: More flaws in so-called ‘safeguards’ “[Dementia] is more erratic and patients often live longer. A lot of things can happen during that period. For instance, a patient might say that she would want euthanasia if she no longer recognizes his relatives. This could happen. But at a next visit she can still recognize her partner or her children. What is the right moment to grant euthanasia? “Exactly. Circumstances change. Conditions change. Health and well-being improve. Make a submission today against euthanasia in NZ – www.protect.org.nzA medical ethicist has resigned from a Dutch regional assessment committee for euthanasia over a law which allows non-consenting demented patients to be euthanised. For ten years Berna van Baarsen helped to assess whether euthanasia had been performed in accordance with the law in the North Holland region. She resigned on January 1. “’I do not believe that a written declaration of intent can replace an oral request for incapacitated patients with advanced dementia,” she told the magazine Medisch Contact.Under Article 2.2 of the Dutch euthanasia law, a doctor may euthanize a patient who can no longer make clear what he wants, but who had previously left a written declaration. The law says:If a patient aged sixteen or over who is no longer capable of expressing his will, but before reaching this state was deemed capable of making a reasonable appraisal of his own interests, has made a written declaration requesting that his life be terminated, the physician may comply with this request unless he has well-founded reasons for declining to do so. “In people with a terminal illness like cancer, in whom euthanasia has already been agreed but who suddenly ended up in a coma because of their illness, that’s fair,” says van Baarsen.However, dementia is a very different kind of ailment, she told Trouw. “That disease is more erratic and patients often live longer. A lot of things can happen during that period. “For instance, a patient might say that she would want euthanasia if she no longer recognizes his relatives. “This could happen. But at a next visit she can still recognize her partner or her children. What is the right moment to grant euthanasia? ”Furthermore, the suffering of a dementia patient is difficult to assess.“It is fundamentally impossible at this stage to establish that the patient is suffering unbearably, because he can no longer explain it”, says van Baarsen.Sometimes patients act aggressively after being admitted to a nursing home, even shouting that they want to leave. “It is of course possible that the patient is suffering unbearably,” she admits. “But does the same applies to a nursing home resident who is sitting quietly in a corner? If you are not entirely sure, you cannot presume that they are suffering unbearably.”Van Baarsen is not the only member of a euthanasia review committee to resign over the interpretation of the law. Three years ago ethicist Theo Boer also stepped down and has become a harsh critic of the Dutch euthanasia system.http://alexschadenberg.blogspot.co.nz/2018/01/euthanasia-assessor-resigns-over.htmlKeep up with family issues in NZ.
