Officers who were involved in a shooting in Broek in Waterland with the suspected robbers of an armored truck last year will not be prosecuted. The Public Prosecutor’s Office (OM) said the 13 officers had been justified in opening fire. The agents used their weapons because of the emergency situation, and to allow them to apprehend the suspects, concluded the OM of Noord-Holland after investigation.

The shots killed one of the suspects, a 47-year-old man from France. Two others were injured, having suffered gunshot wounds to the legs.

The vehicle was stolen on May 19 last year from the premises of Schöne Edelmetaal on Meeuwenlaan in Amsterdam-Noord. Several hooded robbers fired bullets with automatic firearms, according to OM. After the robbery, they left with millions of euros in loot in three cars, and a separate police chase followed. Six suspects were eventually arrested in a meadow in Broek in Waterland. Several other arrests took place subsequently, notably in Belgium and France.

When evaluating the actions of the police, two situations were considered. The first was that police fired shots as the thieves transferred the cash and fled in waiting cars. At that time, automatic firearms were also fired at the police, according to OM. The second situation in which the officers opened fire was when the robbers fled into the meadow. According to the justice, it was not clear if the suspects were still armed.

Later it turned out that one person was armed. Although no shots were fired at the officers at the time, officers were still allowed to use their weapons to apprehend the robbers, according to OM. Just before that, the officers were placed in a life-threatening situation, the prosecution said. “There was a constant threat both to the police and to others. The robbers had to be stopped as soon as possible and that was only possible in this situation, using the gun.”

It was “an unprecedented situation of violence in broad daylight which many people witnessed”, according to OM. “The incident had a major social impact. It is of course regrettable that one person was killed and two others injured.”

NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City girl who was just 11 months old when she was hit in the face by a stray bullet in January was released from hospital on Friday after learning to talk and walk again.

Catherine Arias was discharged from Blythedale Children’s Hospital in Valhalla, Westchester County, with her father and mother, who called the 16-month-old a ‘beautiful miracle baby’. The police outside cheered as the family left the building.

“Our journey has been long, but in the end there is light at the end of the tunnel,” said her mother, Miraida Gomez. “We are definitely happy, we can’t wait to start this new chapter in our lives, and just happy that everyone can witness a miracle.”

Catherine was sitting in a parked car with her mother when a man on a Bronx street opened fire on another person. A bullet hit her in the cheek and exited through the top of her head, causing brain damage and leaving half of her body paralyzed.

The shooting was part of a series of high-profile crimes in the weeks after Mayor Eric Adams took office, promising a safer city and leading to calls to reduce gun violence.

No arrests have been made in Catherine’s case.

RAPS today wrapped up the final day of Euro Convergence 2022, which took place live and in person in Amsterdam after being held virtually the previous two years. Euro Convergence is the premier annual event for European regulatory professionals. This year’s event attracted over 500 participants from six continents and 33 countries.

Attendees gathered for three days of educational sessions, expert presentations and panel discussions hosted exclusively by European regulatory leaders and focused on the most pressing medical device, IVD and regulatory topics. pharmaceutical for the European market. This year’s Euro Convergence also provided the European regulatory community with a long-awaited opportunity to meet again in person to discuss issues, share ideas and network.

“It was great to be able to meet in person again,” said conference committee co-chair Siegfried Schmitt, vice president, technical, PAREXEL. “The European regulatory community continues to face significant changes in EU regulation, even as we continue to address urgent pandemic-related healthcare needs. Bringing health authorities, notified bodies and regulated industry together in the same room has been invaluable. »

Euro Convergence 2022 featured over 50 training sessions and over 120 expert speakers. Presenters included more than 30 representatives from health authorities: European Medicines Agency (EMA), European Commission (EC), Swissmedic, Austrian Agency for Medicines and Medical Devices, UK Medicines Regulatory Agency and Health Products (MHRA) and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or notified bodies, such as BSI, TÜV SÜD, Dekra and Kiwa Dare. The agenda also included poster presentations, sponsored sessions and networking events, as well as several pre-conference workshops.

For the first time, Euro Convergence delegates voted to select the best poster, which was awarded to “Regulatory intelligence, to protect and serve your medical device strategy globally” by Raquel Carnero with IQVA.

“Euro Convergence 2022 has been a huge success,” said conference committee co-chair Alex Laan, senior director of medical research, NAMSA. “It is remarkable that RAPS has been able to organize such a dynamic, substantial and well-managed face-to-face event after two years of virtual meetings. The fact that this is the largest European conference ever organized by RAPS is a testament to the dynamism and dedication of the regulatory community.

Next year’s euro convergence is set to return to Amsterdam, May 10-12. More information and updates on Euro Convergence 2023 will be available in the coming days at www.raps.org/euroconvergence.

AMSTERDAM — Patients seeking treatment for addiction are often at a low point in their lives, making it vital the relocation of St. Mary’s Healthcare’s Chemical Dependency Inpatient Services Unit to a brand new space with easy access to related services, according to Kayla Egan, Director. behavioral health.

“People come here because they want to recover,” Egan said. “We know how incredibly important this service is to the people who walk through that door every day.”

The 14-bed chemical dependency unit on the second floor of the Memorial Building on Route 30 in the city of Amsterdam opened on April 1. Previous program space at the Guy Park Avenue main campus had been limited to serving up to 10 patients during the pandemic.

Renovations were undertaken last year to create the new unit. The spring move-in was timed to coincide with the end of inpatient treatment whenever possible.

The unit refreshed with modern equipment and furnishings is welcoming to patients and staff with ample space for supportive program services.

“Our patients don’t feel so good about themselves. We want them to know that we are proud of them for coming. We want to show how proud we are with the beautiful space we’ve built for them,” Egan said.

The redone wing features single and double patient rooms, a nurses station, unit coordination area, examination rooms and a group activity room that can be used for counseling or recreation .

All-substance addiction treatment is available through the program for anyone 18 years of age or older. Amid the ongoing opioid epidemic, spurred by over-prescription at the behest of pharmaceutical companies, it’s no surprise that patients are most often seeking treatment for these substances.

“Over the past five years, we have seen a tremendous increase in the number of patients seeking treatment for an opioid use disorder,” Egan said.

Patients typically stay on the unit for just over 20 days and receive individual, group and family counseling to help them recover. Medication can be prescribed and adjusted as needed.

Medication can be crucial in blocking withdrawal symptoms and cravings, according to Kelly Underwood, manager of substance abuse services at St. Mary’s.

“It’s an important part of their treatment package that we can offer,” Underwood said. “Even when someone detoxes and is no longer in withdrawal, there is such an urge that surrounds it that is a real driver and makes it difficult to have a more stable recovery.”

Using drugs to treat addiction is not the same as switching from one drug to another, Egan said. This unfounded belief has created stigma around a recovery resource that can help people feel just normal and able to get through their day.

“They don’t get high on this drug. They feel what we feel when we wake up every morning,” Egan said.

The chemical dependency program specializes in the dual management of addictions and mental disorders. The move of the Chemical Dependence Unit to the Memorial Building, which houses outpatient substance abuse, opioid treatment, children’s mental health and adult mental health services, is part of ongoing efforts to streamline access to coordinated care.

“It gives us the ability to collaborate seamlessly, when it’s not all in the same building, it’s a little more challenging,” Egan said.

People who initially seek outpatient addiction services who providers believe would benefit from inpatient care may sometimes be reluctant or afraid to enter the program, Egan added. The ability to simply walk to another floor of the same building to visit the chemical dependency unit and interact with staff can go a long way in convincing patients.

Additionally, anyone seeking both mental health and addictions treatment unsure of where to go can easily be directed to the appropriate services and providers by visiting one site or calling the 24/7 Helpline. 7 of St. Mary’s.

“There is no wrong door,” Egan said. “We want people to have access to treatment when they need it.”

Patients in the Chemical Dependency Unit undergo physical examinations to identify and address any issues related to physical health and general well-being. Addiction can lead to health problems, Egan acknowledged, while persistent issues causing discomfort can contribute to relapses.

“We fail if we only deal narrowly with addiction,” Egan said. “We have to look at the whole person.”

The presence of the Rao Outpatient Pavilion and the Amsterdam Family Health Center on the same campus allows patients easy access to physical health services.

Addiction inpatient services had an average occupancy rate of 94% before the pandemic. St. Mary’s anticipates that the chemical dependency unit will exceed these levels to achieve full occupancy.

The health care agency is preparing to meet the need for addiction services by adding six additional inpatient beds and program space through new renovations to space on the third floor of the Memorial Building planned for the year next.

Hospital administrators are still considering how to reuse the former Chemical Dependency Unit space on the Guy Park Avenue campus.

Previously Atlanta: An upper-class white married couple in New York find themselves wondering what to do next when their son’s nanny, an elderly Trinidadian named Sylvia, dies unexpectedly.

THE STORY SO FAR: Paper Boi and Darius decide to get high on hallucinogens and take a walk around Amsterdam together.

WHAT’S GOOD IN THIS EPISODE? : Darius attempts to pay for the Nepalese Spacecakes he and Paper Boi will ingest to get high, only to be told he doesn’t have enough money for them. “Well, I’ll let fate take care of that.” (“And by “fate” he means Paper Boi rushing in and paying himself) Paper Boi’s response to whether he’s willing and able to handle getting high like this: “My nigga, I had to watch the movie Cats sober with a bitch who lied to me about having excellent, okay? So I know the extremes. (And no, Darius, Cats is do not underrated, and I say this as someone who drank four Moscow mules to prepare to see Cats in a theater on the opening weekend). Paper Boi is chased by a group of white teenagers who recognize him and demand his autograph, then snatch a baby from his stroller and throw him around like a soccer ball when they can’t find him. (Fortunately, this ends much better than the last time he was ambushed by fans while alone). Paper Boi ends up in an art gallery where he meets Lorraine (Ava Grey), who escorts him around Amsterdam while Darius is nowhere to be found. Paper Boi and Lorraine meet Lorraine’s friends in an underground bar where their drinks (two dirty martinis, gin and Hpnotiq, cleanly served white Hennessy, aka “two dirty, a Blue Lagoon and a Chris Evans”) are paid for by …an older white man and someone dressed head to toe in a Dalmatian costume. (Is that God hanging out in Amsterdam this time instead of New Orleans?). Paper Boi and Lorraine confront each other in the middle of the street, where he clarifies that he doesn’t trust her, and Lorraine tells him it’s because she’s telling him what he needs to hear, not what he wants to hear, including how his family and friends are getting ahead of him now that he’s successful. Their argument ending with the revelation that Paper Boi was in fact raised this entire episode, and that the drug addicted tourist wearing a Goofy hat lying in an alley and shaking all over as he lay under a blanket that Paper Boi and Darius went to the beginning of the episode after having their coffee and their Nepalese space cakes? It was Paper Boi. (Lorraine is also the name of Paper Boi’s late mother, so when she described herself in the art gallery as an angel who came at the right time wasn’t entirely inaccurate). Earn to prove once again that he is good at his job and supports Paper Boi when Paper Boi asks him whether or not he owns the master recordings of his music, to which Earn tells him that he has them. possesses.

ALL THE CAST CAMEOS OF COMMUNITY? : No.

HOW MANY BUMPS DID FY HAVE IN THIS EPISODE? : About two or three, courtesy of Paper Boi and Lorraine.

ALL THE CAST CAMEOS OF SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY? : No.

ON A SCALE OF 1 TO “WHAT WILL I WATCH?” How weird and terrifying was this episode? : Nine. It wasn’t terrifying, but it was so weird.

ARE THERE TIME-TRAVELING ALIENS IN THIS EPISODE? No. And even if they did appear, they won’t even be the weirdest thing to appear in this episode.

CHET HANKS DOESN’T APPEAR IN THIS EPISODE AS WELL, DOES IT? No, Chet Hanks and his wacky Jamaican accent can’t be found here, but Liam Neeson is.

I’M SORRY, WHAT? IS LIAM NEESON IN THIS EPISODE? : Yes it is.

LIAM NEESON? THE WHITE LIAM NEESON? : Yes, Socks! Liam Neeson makes an appearance here, where he meets Paper Boi in the underground bar Lorraine brings him to.

I… GOOD… WOW! SO… WHAT EXACTLY IS HIS ROLE HERE? : Paper Boi sees Liam sitting at the bar enjoying his drink, and they talk to each other. Liam is curious how he got to this bar (which is called Cancel Club), and what he said or did to get there, then he’ll explain his latest bullshit (in which he actually felt the need to confess in an interview that he wanted to find a random black man and kill him after a close friend of his was sexually assaulted) which got him into trouble and put his career and reputation at risk. Paper Boi expresses relief that Liam saw the error of his ways and is happy to know that he doesn’t really hate black people. To which Liam corrects him and explains that because they tried to ruin his career, he definitely hates them now and considers them his mortal enemies. As to whether he’s learned that he really shouldn’t say things like that, Liam’s response is: “The best and the worst about being white is…we don’t have nothing to learn if we don’t want to.”

HE JUST… HE JUST REALLY SAID THE QUIET PART OUT LOUD, HUH? : Indeed, he did.

TO SUM UP: A season of Atlanta which takes place almost entirely in Amsterdam wouldn’t really feel complete if we couldn’t see at least one character get higher than the p-ssy giraffe, and we see that happen in Paper Boi. He finds himself once again on a solo adventure where he is forced to confront his fears about himself and his career, then decides to face the reality of the situation at the end of his escapade. Yes, Lorraine asked him questions and told him things that needed to be said. But was “Lorraine” just talking bullshit to get under her skin, or did she just want Paper Boi to ask those questions himself and confirm whether or not the people around him could really be trusted when he s about him and his future? (Earn has already proven more than once that Paper Boi can be trusted. Darius and his non-paying ass? The jury is still out…) Not to mention the fact that she kicks him out of the Cancel Club because, according to her, they were about to force him to perform on stage for the crowd. The fact that Cancel Club is a predominantly white establishment that looks like something off Mulholland Drive and where “New Jazz” bands are presented as if they were King Kong? It could also be seen as a sign that “Lorraine” wants Paper Boi to be more careful and more careful about what he does, how he does it, and the audience he’s supposed to do everything for. And not just because he was recently sued by white fans who were far too authoritative and aggressive to get what they wanted from him.

Liam Neeson’s appearance on ‘New Jazz’ marks the second Atlanta episode in which a problematic white man appeared on the show, and if you asked some viewers about it, it’s not something they’re happy to see while watching Atlanta, whether or not Liam or Chet Hanks are in the joke that Donald Glover and his collaborators tell. There have been complaints before about the show losing its way, how it doesn’t focus enough attention on the main cast, how it’s even been gentrified and isn’t as black as it used to be. because of all the whites that keep popping up on the show, and how he seems determined to keep talking too much about whiteness. I’ve already said how I feel about these complaints, so there’s no point in repeating myself. What I can and will say is it was another smart well done episode, Ava Gray was a fantastic breath of fresh air in her scenes with Brian Tyree Henry, and if that you didn’t already know Atlanta is the work of a few sick and twisted geniuses, so the scene with Paper Boi and Liam Neeson will make sure you know by now.

But if Rachel Dolezal appears in these last two episodes of the season, then I’m going to have something to say about it.

A flight to Amsterdam descended into chaos after a huge fight broke out between passengers. Look here :

The flight departed from Manchester yesterday, May 5, and was heading for the Dutch capital – but the short trip across the North Sea was marred by a fight between two groups of ‘unruly passengers’.

Footage posted to social media – which has been viewed nearly two million times – shows at least four men struggling in the seats and swinging a flurry of punches at each other.

All the while, passengers can be heard screaming and urging the men to pack their bags, as staff and members of the public attempt to break up the fight.

Airline KLM said cabin crew and the captain had to intervene to break up the fight, and everyone involved was arrested on arrival at Schiphol airport.

A spokesperson told LADbible: “[Yesterday] We had unruly passengers on our KLM 1070 flight from Manchester to Amsterdam.

“The captain and cabin crew broke up a fight between two groups of passengers.

“All those involved were arrested upon arrival at Schiphol Airport. No delays occurred.

“KLM does not tolerate any aggression against employees or passengers. We apologize to our passengers who may have been affected by the incident.”

The fight broke out en route to Amsterdam. Credit: Twitter

Earlier this week, a man who groped two flight attendants and punched a third on a flight in the United States was jailed.

Maxwell Berry was sentenced to 60 days in jail for his behavior on a Frontier Airlines flight from Philadelphia to Miami last July.

Trouble started after the 23-year-old ordered a third booze and rubbed his empty cup against a flight attendant’s behind.

He then managed to spill his drink on his shirt, went to the bathroom and came out shirtless.

He continued to walk around the plane for about 15 minutes, before hitting two flight attendants at least twice and punching a male flight attendant, authorities said.

Jordan Galarza, the flight attendant who was hit by Berry, described the 60-day sentence as “a disgusting miscarriage of justice.”

Speaking to WPLG Local 10 News on Tuesday May 3, he said: “You can tell [the taping] looked a little barbaric, but it worked perfectly and no one was hurt because of the way we did what we did.

“He made an enemy of everyone on that flight.

“People on that plane saw justice coming – more than we saw today.”

AMSTERDAM Upon entering the Walter Elwood Museum in Amsterdam several years ago, artist Brent Birnbaum felt a connection to the place.

At the time, he was looking for a studio apartment outside of the Rockaway Beach neighborhood in Queens, where he lived.

Birnbaum stumbled upon much more than that at the museum, where he has since not only secured studio space, but also opened a contemporary art gallery called Walter’s.

“A lot of my artwork that I’ve been cultivating for 20 years is about objects and building collections,” Birnbaum said. “So when I first walked in here in 2017, I immediately thought, ‘This is for me. It’s not just by chance.

The museum is a maze of around 20,000 objects, from portraits to mugs to stuffed animals, collected locally and around the world. The collection was started by Walter Elwood, an educator in the Greater Amsterdam School District in the early 1900s. He opened a museum at Fifth Ward School in hopes of bringing items from his travels and trips to other people to students who might not have the opportunity to see the world. The museum has moved several times over the years and is currently located at 100 Church Street in the former Sanford Carpet Mill industrial complex.

The Walter Gallery opened last year and was born out of a partnership between Birnbaum and the museum, led by general manager Ann Peconie.

“He saw a space we had that we used for storage [and] he said it would be a great contemporary gallery,” Peconie said.

Birnbaum had experience running galleries in Rockaway Beach storefronts that had been abandoned due to Hurricane Sandy. The purpose of the galleries was to rebuild the neighborhood while helping artists.

“It was the kind of thing that interested me. something for the community, not just for the artists,” Birnbaum said.

Walter’s has a similar story.
Birnbaum cleaned up the museum’s old storage space, had some display walls installed and painted it over. He also commissioned artist Lauren Clay to design a zine room that functions as a store and exhibition space.

Walter’s began hosting exhibitions last year, featuring artists from the Greater Capital Area and New York area.

“I like finding artists who haven’t had a ton of opportunities yet and I think they deserve them. I like to research artists who are not recognized,” Birnbaum said.

This includes Jeff Wigman and Panayiotis Terzis, whose works will be on display until Sunday when there will be a closing reception from 2-4 p.m.

Wigman is a Troy-based artist whose oil paintings have intense narrative lines that are at times carefully chaotic. His exhibition, titled “The Air We Breathe,” features an eerie painting with skeletons walking hand in hand on a sunny day down a mountainous path. Another work depicts a large ornate tower leaning towards two figures standing near a displaced portable toilet.

Terzis, whose work is featured in the zine room, is a New York-based artist, printer, and publisher. The exhibit at Walter’s is titled “Mega Pan” and includes a wide range of works by Terzis, including gouache paintings, serigraphs on Plexiglas, books and more.

Student showcase
Starting Thursday, Walter’s and the museum will host an exhibition of works by students from the Greater Amsterdam School District.

From Peconia’s perspective, the museum is going back to its roots.

“We are so excited to network with the school district again because this museum was part of the school district for so many, many years because Walter was a teacher,” Peconie said.

The museum once hosted a student showcase, but has not been able to do so for over a decade.

“It’s like the Greater Amsterdam Art Show is coming home,” Peconie said.

For students, seeing their work exhibited in a gallery/museum can have a big impact, according to Donna Marek, longtime art professor at the Marie Curie Institute of Engineering and Communication, who is one of the teachers. involved in the exhibition.

“It’s such a pride for them to show their work to the community and to their parents because they’ve worked so hard at it,” Marek said.
“For us as art teachers, it’s just wonderful to show students’ work, but it’s also important to us that the community understands how important the visual arts are in the world, how many different careers you can get in the arts.”

The show will not necessarily include the work of all students in the district, but it will provide insight into many mediums and projects that students have worked on over the past year.
“It instills that pride in their work and their ability. We want them to gain pride and that’s the most important thing,” said Marek.

There will be an opening reception from 5-7 p.m. Thursday and the show will continue through Sunday, May 15.

More foot traffic
Since Walter opened, Peconie said it has drawn more people to the museum.
“We meet the kind of people who wouldn’t necessarily come to the museum,” Peconie said.

To get to Walter’s, visitors must first walk through the museum and so even those who come to see the work of Wigman or Terzis end up wandering through the museum, which has around 15 different exhibition halls.

The vastness of the collection piqued Birnbaum’s interest years ago and since learning more about Elwood, he has felt closer to the educator.

“A lot of my artwork that I’ve been cultivating for 20 years is about objects and building collections,” Birnbaum said.

Previously, this included vintage board games, which he deconstructed to create intricate collages. Recently, he collected colorful toilets, which were popular in the mid-1900s, to create a large-scale installation. He also collects Pound Puppies, toys that were popular in the 1980s whose advertisements assumed that children had to save the stuffed dogs.

Peconie sees similarities between the artist and the educator.
“Walter collected a lot of [objects] that didn’t make sense anymore and Brent’s art takes things that don’t make sense anymore and makes them magical. There are a lot of connections between them,” Peconie said.

Birnbaum also created an online presence for Walter’s, with a website and an Instagram account.
“Some people on Instagram will call me Walter because my username is Walter Elwood,” Birnbaum said. “I feel like it’s become a pseudonym for me. And I feel like I’m really honoring what Walter Elwood was doing.

As you prepare for New Amsterdam season 4 episode 18 airing on NBC next week, things are going to be emotional – absolutely.

At the end of this past episode, we learned that Helen Sharpe had lost her voice after the emergency operation to remove the blood clots. While part of her is getting better, there’s a devastating twist that could be extremely difficult to overcome.

So what exactly happened here to cause this? Speaking to TV Insider in a new interview, executive producer David Schulner notes that Freema Agyeman’s character “suffered a massive stroke as a result of the blood clots.” Meanwhile, fellow EP Peter Horton sets up some of the story to come:

The challenge is whether she will ever get it back, whether she can speak like herself again. Being able to speak is one of the cornerstones of your identity, especially for someone like Sharpe, who is so articulate and articulate. If she loses that, what does it do to her life, her identity, and her relationship with Max?

It is true that most of this story goes against the idea of ​​”More Joy”, which was presented as one of the central themes of the season. Between Max’s cancer and Helen’s, these two have been through a LOT over the past few years. We tend to believe that Helen will eventually find her voice again – promos for the sequel show her working on it.

Will there be a happier ending to this season? We sure hope so, but don’t be shocked if there’s at least one more dramatic twist at some point. After all, the writers are going to do everything they can to set the stage for Season 5.
