‘Chaotic’ Government in disability cuts U-turn

first_imgNews Previous articleLetterkenny hoax callers tying up Emergency ServicesNext articleMan cleared of Michaela McAreavey murder speaks out News Highland Opposition parties are accusing the Government of chaotic management of the health service – after Health Minister James Reilly last night announced a climbdown on some of the cuts targeted at people with disabilities.After a lengthy cabinet meeting yesterday, Minister Reilly said he would order the HSE not to cut the hours of personal care assistants to people with diabilities – and find the savings elsewhere.Controversial cuts in spending on home help hours will go ahead however, as the HSE aims to make savings of 130-million euro by the end of the year.The U-turn came after disability groups threatened to hold an all-night protest outside Government buildings.

UFC fighter Anthony Smith details taking down home intruder: ‘I went into that fight ready to die’

first_imgAnthony Smith is a hero.The 31-year-old UFC fighter is used to being in fights, but not like this. Early Sunday morning, Smith warded off a home invader that threatened the health and well-being of his wife and three daughters.  Smith said the intruder displayed an array of emotions, from confusion, anger, sadness to politeness. After police arrested the man, he offered a few final words for Smith:”He looked up at me, with the saddest look on his face — he’s cut, he’s bleeding, his face is swollen, he’s covered in blood,” Smith said, “and so calmly he looked up at me and said, ‘Hey, man, I’m sorry.'”You always just think you’re a badass,” Smith said. “I just don’t feel like one. I feel like … insufficient, a little bit. I didn’t know it was possible to be that terrified.” In an interview with ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, Smith detailed the confrontation with the invader:ICYMI: @lionheartasmith is a hero. He took down a home intruder Sunday morning.https://t.co/3vkDqTnuYZ— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) April 7, 2020MORE: UFC 249 full fight card announcedThe intruder gained access to the house through an open garage door, something Smith said is customary in his neighborhood. After being awakened by his wife, who heard a man screaming in the house, Smith confronted the invader and began to subdue him.”He was only 15 or 20 feet max from me when I came out of the bedroom,” Smith said. “So, as soon as I came out, he just looked at me and kind of flexed, and looked like he was trying to scare me. And he was coming my way, so I paused and kind of thought to myself, ‘I don’t know him.’ And just panic. It was the most terrifying moment of your life.”Smith mentioned that he was unaware of any weapons that the intruder might’ve had, and he feared hearing a gunshot or being stabbed. Smith said he knew he had about “two minutes” before adrenaline subsided and the intruder might have the upper hand.Even though Smith outsized the intruder by about 70 pounds, he admitted he had a difficult time wrangling the intruder while trying to find answers, eventually getting an assist from his wife, who grabbed the intruder’s legs as Smith and the man tussled. The scene was left bloody, Smith said.”I’m by no means the baddest dude on the planet, but he’s a regular Joe, and I had a hard time dealing with him,” Smith said. “He took everything that I gave him. He took every punch, every knee, every elbow. He took every single one of them and never slowed down. He kept fighting me.”Smith was uncertain whether the intruder was on drugs, and he was also unsure whether there was a second intruder in the house, as the intruder was screaming the name “Luke,” which may have been a plea for a second intruder.At that point, Smith asked for a knife from his mother-in-law, and he held the knife against the intruder as police rushed to the scene. Smith, who lives in Nebraska, said that “99.9 percent of the time,” he sleeps with a gun next to his bed, but hadn’t the morning of the intrusion. The gun was in another bag, away from his customary spot in his bedroom.Fortunately, Smith and his family — wife, three daughters and mother-in-law — were safe. It turns out that other neighbors had been victimized, with Smith’s house the second house in a matter of minutes terrorized by the intruder. Smith said the intruder had been entering cars and banging on doors as he worked through the neighborhood.Later, police mentioned that the intruder had a history of mental illness and domestic violence.”I’m not lying when I say it was one of the toughest fights I’ve ever had in my whole life,” Smith said. “That adrenaline happens. When I went into it, I went into that fight ready to die.”last_img read more
