Man rescues police officer from fiery crash

first_imgiStock/NadejdaReidBy: EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News (NEW YORK) — When a Pennsylvania police officer crashed his patrol car on the way to a call, a bystander stepped in to save him, authorities said.The fiery, two-car accident took place on Sunday in Uniontown, about 45 miles south of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Robert Broadwater told ABC News.Daylan McLee was at his dad’s house for Father’s Day when he heard a “big boom” and people screaming, he told ABC News.That’s when McLee jumped into action, Broadwater said.McLee went outside to find a Uniontown police officer pinned inside his car behind a door that wouldn’t open, he said.McLee said he could smell the fumes and feel the heat — and that’s when the front of the car became “engulfed in flames.”McLee said he pulled the door open and dragged the officer away from the burning car.“I don’t know where I mustered the strength,” he said. “My heart was beating, I was scared to death thinking we were gonna blow up. But something in me wouldn’t let me leave him.”The officer hurt his leg, Broadwater said, but neither the officer’s injuries nor the second driver’s injuries were life threatening.“I don’t know how anybody walked out alive,” McLee said.To McLee, this close-call should serve as a lesson.“I just think this is a lesson that no matter what we’re going through with the police brutality or with the people brutality on police, whichever way it goes, this is the way things should be handled and this is the love we should give and help our community as civilians,” he said.The cause of the crash remains under investigation, Broadwater said. The Uniontown Police Department declined to comment.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

5 ways to earn your co-workers’ respect

first_imgBeing respected gives you a great sense of purpose in the workplace. If you want to be respected by your co-workers, you can start by respecting yourself. Here are five other easy ways you can gain respect from your teammates.Be nice, but not too nice: Nobody likes the jerk in the office. When you’re not nice to your co-workers, they usually won’t want to have anything to do with you. On the other hand, if you’re too nice, always doing favors for others, you can actually start to come across as ‘soft.’ If your co-workers think you’re a pushover, they may like you, but the respect probably won’t be there.Admit your mistakes: No one likes people who think they’re right all the time. Even if you’re right a lot, nobody’s perfect. When you know you’re wrong, you should own up to it. Your colleagues will be very impressed if you can be humble enough to admit your mistakes.Stand up for yourself: Sometimes, no one’s wrong. Sometimes, people just disagree. Don’t feel bad for standing up for your opinions even if no one else agrees with you. When you’re part of a team, you won’t agree with every decision that is made, and that’s perfectly normal. Just know that you can’t win them all.Lend a hand: We all have a lot of work on our plates. Any chance you get to help someone lighten their load, will definitely be appreciated. If you’re someone your co-workers can count on, you’ll be a valued member of the team.Give out respect: One of the simplest ways to be respected by your co-workers, is to give them respect first. It’s easy to respect someone who acts respectfully towards you. Be a good communicator and don’t waste anyone’s time. 30SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

Orange and Elettra Boost Cable Route Survey Capacity

first_imgOrange and its Italian subsidiary Elettra have recently expanded the fleet with a freshly-revamped vessel dedicated to subsea cable route surveys.The Urbano Monti was launched in the port of Catania in Sicily, Italy, at the end of February, after being refitted and restored.Following sea trials, the vessel is ready to carry out its first survey operation in the Mediterranean Sea for ASN (Alcatel Submarine Networks).After its acquisition in September last year, the vessel arrived in Naples in mid-October to be revamped and equipped with state-of-the-art bathymetry equipment, equipment to study the nature of the seabed and a new dynamic positioning system.“This ship will strengthen the position of Orange Marine and Elettra in the market of marine activities related to subsea cables, in addition to the traditional missions of cable installation and maintenance performed by the existing cable ships fleet,” Orange said.last_img read more

Ivory Coast out as DRC march on, top group

first_imgChamps Ivory Coast out as Renard-led Morocco winOyem, Gabon | AFP | Title-holders the Ivory Coast were dumped out of the Africa Cup of Nations Tuesday after a superb Rachid Alioui goal gave Herve Renard-coached Morocco a 1-0 win in Gabon.Clinching a quarter-finals place was particularly sweet for Frenchman Renard, the coach of the Ivorians when they won the biennial tournament two years ago.The blond, bronzed 48-year-old, wearing his lucky white shirt, hopes to become the first coach to win three Cup of Nations titles with three different countries.He guided outsiders Zambia to glory in 2012 and repeated the feat with perennial underachievers the Ivory Coast three years later.The winning goal came on 64 minutes from France-based Alioui and set up a last-eight showdown against the Group D winners in Port-Gentil Sunday.Democratic Republic of Congo beat Togo 3-1 in the other Group C match to top the standings with seven points followed by Morocco (six), Ivory Coast (two) and Togo (one).As the match kicked off twice champions Ivory Coast knew they had to win while a draw would suffice for Morocco, whose only title came 41 years ago. The Ivorian Elephants and the Moroccan Atlas Lions were renewing a long rivalry with the last episode a 0-0 World Cup qualifying draw in Marrakech two months ago.Both teams rattled the woodwork during a first half which ended 0-0 after the Ivory Coast dominated possession in the northern town of Oyem.Moroccan Faycal Fajr struck the crossbar from a free-kick on 25 minutes with his curled right-foot attempt eluding goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo.Rival shot-stopper Munir Mohamedi made a good reflex save eight minutes before half-time to push away a shot from Wilfried Zaha, who was set up by a superb Salomon Kalou pass.Veteran Kalou went even closer just before the break with a far-post header that beat Mohamedi but went wide of the post.As the game passed the hour mark the scoreboard operator remained unemployed due to a cagey clash in which even half-chances were scarce.The deadlock ended, however, with a world-class goal from Alioui.When the ball was played inside to him, Alioui steered a lofted shot from well outside the box over Gbohouo and into the corner.With a quarter of the match remaining in a stadium surrounded by rubber plantations, the defending champions had to score at least twice to survive but never looked like doing soShare on: WhatsApplast_img read more

BC Hockey to discuss raising the age for legal bodychecking

first_imgWilf Liefke, president of BC Hockey said this is an apropo time to raise the issue, explaining, “Many local associations are holding their AGMs in the weeks leading up to the provincial AGM, so this is a good opportunity to discuss the issue and make informed decisions.”But not everyone’s taking a neutral position on the issue.”Increasingly medical research confirms that the adolescent brain is especially vulnerable to traumatic brain injury,” said Bill Barrable, CEO of the Rick Hansen Institute. “A growing body of research is also telling us that body checking in youth rep leagues is a major risk factor for spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury. It’s very important that minor hockey associations promote awareness among all parents, coaches and players with these facts.”Quick Facts:* The BC Hockey Annual General Meeting will be held June 7-9 in Sun Peaks near Kamloops.* Hockey Canada rules do not allow bodychecking below the age of 11. Each provincial or territorial association sets its own rules for bodychecking for players 11 and above.* Many health organizations, including the BC Provincial Health Office, Canadian Paediatric Society, Rick Hansen Institute, BC Injury Research and Prevention Unit, Sport Med BC, BC Health and Safety Council, and the Canadian Maternal and Child Health Network recommend that bodychecking should not be allowed in peewee (ages 11-12) level hockey. Bill Bennett’s Castlegar visit today coincided with a press release issued from his ministry regarding bodychecking in youth hockey. Bennett, B.C. Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, didn’t speak to the release, as he was here to acclaim BC Liberal candidate for the West Kootenay Riding Jim Postnikoff, but the issue is sure to garner some attention from sports fans in the region.“In light of research highlighting the frequency and severity of injuries as a result of bodychecking … Bennett today encouraged education and awareness about youth bodychecking for parents, coaches, and all involved in youth hockey,” the press release read.“In June, members will consider a resolution at the BC Hockey Annual General Meeting to raise the age of the introduction of bodychecking in youth rep hockey. BC Hockey is encouraging members to let their associations know if they support raising the age.”Bill Bennett didn’t take a stance on whether he supports the change.”I played defense in hockey. Both of my sons played, I coached and I managed hockey teams, but I don’t pretend to be any sort of an expert,” he said.“I just want parents and coaches to be aware of the medical information available today on the impact of bodychecking at a young age, so that they can make an informed decision.”last_img read more

Hirsch Stakes at Del Mar on Aug. 1, while Bal a Bali, who disappointed in the Shoemaker Mile, finishing last of five, “wrenched an ankle in the race, but it was a minor blow.”Mandella added, “I don’t think it will amount to much and we’ll look at the (Grade I) Eddie Read (at Del Mar on July 18).”SMITH LIKES RHYTHM OF ‘TANGO’ ON STRETCH OUTTara’s Tango stretches out in Saturday’s Grade II Summertime Oaks. Mike Smith is looking forward to it.The Hall of Fame jockey has ridden the gray daughter of Unbridled’s Song in each of her previous three races, none beyond seven furlongs, including the Angel’s Flight on May 16 in which she was second in a field of five.“This is what she’s been wanting,” Smith said of the added distance. “I really like this filly. I think a lot of her. Down the road she’s going to a really, really nice one.”Trained by Jerry Hollendorfer for Stonestreet Stables, LLC, Tara’s Tango won her first race last July 20 by 3 ½ lengths, going five furlongs at Del Mar in 57.40.The field for the Oaks, race eight of nine: All Star Bub, Rafael Bejarano, 20-1; Sheer Pleasure, Tyler Baze, 4-1; Danette, Fernando Perez, 15-1; Guild, Flavien Prat, 30-1; Roksana, Felipe Valdez, 12-1; Tara’s Tango, Mike Smith, 4-1; Conquest Curlgirl, Joe Talamo, 12-1; Scat Means Go, Gary Stevens, 8-1; Stellar Wind and Victor Espinoza, 5-2.Fantastic Style was scratched, and trainer Keith Desormeaux said Friday morning that the maiden Danette also would be scratched.

Palma1642225%$133,910 FRESHENING IN STORE FOR AMERICAN PHAROAH?While Bob Baffert has mentioned the Haskell, the Jim Dandy and the Travers as“options” for American Pharoah’s next race, any firm commitment for the immediate future is on hold as the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978 recovers from the Rock Star treatment he’s received since capturing the Belmont Stakes on June 6.The horse has had more requests for personal appearances than Elvis, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones combined. Now, it’s time for some good old R&R.“Every time we have an experience like we had yesterday, it sort of brings back the feeling of winning the Triple Crown and seeing all the people,” Baffert said Friday, the morning after American Pharoah arrived home at Santa Anita following a flight from Kentucky, a police escort from Ontario Airport, and a horde of media and fans on hand to welcome him.“It was nice to see the horse back, but I can tell he was a little bit tired from being shown so much, so now that he’s here, we need to tighten up the show circuit a little bit. He probably needs a little bit of freshening, because this wears on him. When he was in Kentucky, they were bringing him out a lot and showing him to people, sharing him with everybody.“But now that he’s here, it’s a different life. He handles it well because he’s so smart.”Asked if he had a horse for the Gold Cup at Santa Anita a week from Saturday, Baffert said, “I might want to run Hoppertunity. He just ran, and I think I’m looking at him right now.”Hoppertunity finished third in the Grade I Stephen Foster at Churchill Downs on June 6.

Does Observing Flight Explain Its Evolution?

first_imgIn various research labs, evolutionists are studying the origin of flight.  Recent articles, though, only show them observing animals or fossils that already fly or flew.  Does this provide any insight into how flight might have originated by a purposeless material process?Birds:  With a quote from Charles Darwin decorating the heading, PhysOrg announced a book by Gareth Dyke and Gary Kaiser (Wiley, May 2011).  Darwin speculated on a straightforward evolutionary path from dinosaurs to birds via Archaeopteryx, a new fossil discovered in his day.  “Yet in the centuries [sic] following this discovery the rise of modern birds remains greatly debated,” the article began, with rise signifying an evolutionary rise.    So what do Dyke and Kaiser offer to win the debate?  The article said they “set out to unite ornithologists and paleontologists to form a modern understanding of the evolution of birds at the beginning of the 21st century.”  They don’t believe birds evolved beginning in Y2K, of course; they just wanted to get the debating wingless humans to join hands.    But first, they had to sweep away the simplistic march of progress imagined by Darwin and Huxley.  “After slumbering for more than a century avian paleontology has been awakened by startling new discoveries on almost every continent,” co-author Gary Kaiser said, undoubtedly thinking of discarded ideas that Archaeopteryx represented a transitional form.  “Old controversies have been swept away and replaced by new and more difficult questions, such as how did birds learn to fly and how did they survive the great extinction that ended the Mesozoic Era?”    This replacement of old controversies with newer, more difficult ones indicates that not much progress has been made in the last 150 years of Darwinian theory.  The authors are still trying to figure out the most basic question: how did birds learn to fly?  Any answers are in future tense: “Answers to these questions may help us understand how the different kinds of living birds are related to one another and how they evolved into their current niches,”  PhysOrg just reproduced this press release verbatim from Wiley publishers.Flies:  What about insect flight?  PhysOrg in a separate article announced cheerfully, “History of flies takes flight.”  The headline suggested that an explanation of the origin of flight in flies would be forthcoming.  Unfortunately, again, a team of 25 international scientists led by Simon Fraser University only had flying flies to exhibit.  They used “genomic sequencing and morphological information to plug gaps in the 250-million-year history of Diptera” (true flies).    By definition, though diptera (two wings) already had wings, and presumably already flew.  Did the article provide information on the origin of fly flight?  A look at the body of the article finds discussion of fly radiation, fly survival and fly extinction, but nothing about how the first non-flying insects evolved wings, muscles, and brains that allow these tiny acrobats to dazzle Caltech engineers (12/08/2003, 11/20/2006).    The work was all “part of a large-scale effort to place all living organisms into a comprehensive tree of life,” the article said.  Strange that they left out the most important limb of all: the one leading to flight.Have wings, may fly:  Scientists at the University of Illinois discovered the oldest known flying insect.  In PNAS,1 they announced the following.  Look for any explanation of how flight evolved:Insects were the first animals to evolve powered flight and did so perhaps 90 million years before the first flight among vertebrates.  However, the earliest fossil record of flying insect lineages (Pterygota) is poor, with scant indirect evidence from the Devonian and a nearly complete dearth of material from the Early Carboniferous.  By the Late Carboniferous a diversity of flying lineages is known, mostly from isolated wings but without true insights into the paleoethology of these taxa.  Here, we report evidence of a full-body impression of a flying insect from the Late Carboniferous Wamsutta Formation of Massachusetts, representing the oldest trace fossil of Pterygota.  Through ethological and morphological analysis, the trace fossil provides evidence that its maker was a flying insect and probably was representative of a stem-group lineage of mayflies….But mayflies not only may fly, they do fly.  Where did their ancestors learn how to get from desire to accomplishment?  National Geographic News posted a photo of the fossil imprint.Each of these articles spoke confidently about the evolution of flight, but as evidence, only showcased flying things.  Wouldn’t arguing that flight evolved require showing a sequence of animals progressing from flightless to flying? 1.  Knecht, Engel, and Benner, “Late Carboniferous paleoichnology reveals the oldest full-body impression of a flying insect,” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, published online before print April 4, 2011, doi: 10.1073/pnas.1015948108 PNAS April 4, 2011.What a scam artist this Darwin was.  His science doesn’t fly.  Don’t invest in his company’s promissory notes; they’re already 150 years old and not backed by any collateral.  But oh, did Charlie know how to hire fast-talking hot air salesmen.  Put your stock in biomimetics.  Those are the guys who know design when they see it (03/15/2011, 02/20/2011).(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
