The next day, however, the record-breaking snowfall had only made things worse. Taylor and Ally tried to hike through the snow for help, but the snow was so deep, he knew that it would be too risky to try and find help. Taylor and Ally then hunkered down in his car and waited for rescuers to arrive. The two of them spent the next five days in his car, during which he would periodically eat leftover Taco Bell fire sauce for energy and turn on his car for occasional heating during the frigid nighttime temperatures.MORE: Rescuers Pull Car From Frigid Water, Find a Driver Who Survived for 5 Hours Using an Air BubbleAfter days of slurping down hot sauce packets, Taylor was finally found by a snowmobile rider who discovered his car and called the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.“Jeremy and Ally were found to be in good condition, but hungry after being stuck in the snow for five days,” the department wrote in a Facebook post.Upon being brought back to civilization, Taylor made his own social media post to thank his friends and family for their support, saying: “I’m safe, my Ally dog is safe. I really appreciate all the help. Got lucky, lets never do that again. I’ll be in touch with everyone soon.”CHECK OUT: Heroic Momma Hiked 26 Miles Through Heavy Snow to Save Husband, SonIn addition to his tale of survival being shared by news outlets from around the world, a Taco Bell spokesperson reportedly reached out to Taylor in order to offer him a year’s worth of free food.Though we are not yet sure whether Taylor is destined to be the new Taco Bell poster boy, he did jokingly praise the fast food chain’s hot sauce in a Facebook comment, saying: “Taco Bell fire sauce saves lives.”Fire Up Your Friends With The Good News By Sharing It To Social Media – Photo by Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Oregon Facebook / Jamie, CCAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more

Vermont Tech Respiratory Therapy Program Partners with VIT to be featured at national conference

first_imgVermont Technical College. 3.30.2012. An innovative virtual learning partnership between Vermont Technical College’s Respiratory Therapy Program and Vermont Interactive Technologies (formerly known as Vermont Interactive Television, and commonly referred to as VIT) will be featured at the United States Distance Learning Association’s (USDLA) 25th annual national conference in St. Louis in May. ‘This program has resulted in a unique and highly successful distance learning recipe that blends synchronous and asynchronous learning with just the right measurement of in-person classes, virtual classes via video, and online content,’ said Tara Lidstone, executive director of VIT, Vermont’s largest public videoconferencing network. Last year, VIT received the USDLA Best Practices award and was also recognized internationally as a Computerworld Laureate.Students in the Respiratory Therapy Program learn to treat patients of all ages, from premature infants to the elderly. Health conditions that require respiratory care include asthma, emphysema, chronic obstructive lung disease, pneumonia, cystic fibrosis, infant respiratory distress syndrome, and conditions brought on by shock, trauma, or postoperative complications.The Respiratory Therapy Program is based on the Williston campus and reaches out to students throughout the Northeast Kingdom. Lectures are delivered from VIT studios in Williston and Newport. Students at the remote site can attend all classes and labs within their community. All students must travel to hospitals in Vermont, New York, and New Hampshire for their hands-on experiences. In 2011, the national professional journal ‘Respiratory Times’ featured the program’s innovative, blended learning model. ‘Our unique distance learning program is truly a ‘win-win,’‘ said Faye Tolar, Vermont Tech’s program director for respiratory therapy. ‘We have provided many Vermonters with employment in areas where unemployment is very high, and we have provided rural hospitals with respiratory therapists. The program has been able to meet the needs of patients throughout Vermont, especially in and around Burlington, and hospitals in neighboring cities in New York and New Hampshire.’last_img read more

Beck & Pollitzer spruces up London

first_imgThis year’s tree – a 20 m tall Norwegian spruce, affectionately known as ‘queen of the forest’ – was shipped from Norway to the UK port of Hull, before being transported by Beck & Pollitzer into the heart of London.On arrival at Trafalgar Square, Beck & Pollitzer’s specialist rigging team unloaded the iconic tree, which weighed 4 tonnes, and manoeuvred it into position using the company’s cranes and specialist lifting equipment, before securing the tree in place.Beck & Pollitzer ceo, Andrew Hodgson, was also invited to attend the official Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Trafalgar Square on December 4, which saw the mayors of London and Oslo illuminate the famous conifer.Since 1947, Oslo has presented the UK with the tree annually, as gratitude for the British support of Norway during the Second World War.View a timelapse video of the tree’s installation below:   www.beck-pollizer.comlast_img read more

The team thought about it and even let fans vote on 3 helmets designs that used the alternate logos of the time. The profile Raven (the original version) won big time, but the Modells wanted to figure out a way to incorporate Baltimore more…thus the B. Also, David Modell made several comments about wanting more purple in the design (the original Raven profile was black), so the new primary was created.It’s a solid look that you see EVERYWHERE in Baltimore. You should see their new practice/office complex…that logo is etched in everything. Don’t look for any major changes ANY time soon.This was the profile that was included in the vote. I voted for it because I thought it flowed better on the side of a helmet. However, if I had known it would morph into the current logo, I wouldn’t have voted for it.

2019 FIBA World Cup: Australia On Revenge Mission Against Spain As Argentina Look To…

first_imgThree years ago, Australia believed they would stand on the 2016 Summer Olympics podium in Rio de Janeiro, but Spain denied them via an 89-88 result in the bronze medal game.The Boomers have not forgotten that painful experience, and it’ll be foremost in their minds when they collide with the Spaniards in tomorrow’s FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 Semi-Finals in Beijing.Patty Mills, in particular, should be raring and ready to go. He scored 30 points the last time Australia and Spain met at a major senior level tournament, but it wasn’t enough for Australia in what ultimately turned out to be a one-point loss at the Carioca Arena in Rio de Janeiro. Mills has been on a mission here in China, leading all players in total points scored, and he’s got this matchup with Spain marked in his head.After Argentina’s convincing win over Serbia, it seems the Argentinians may be peaking at the right time, but that theory will be tested when they try to hurdle a determined France in the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 Semi-Finals.Both teams are getting to Beijing on a high after pulling off upsets against Serbia and USA. They deserved the headlines, they celebrated their wins, and both are now one win away from the World Cup Final.Argentina won the inaugural World Cup in 1950 and played the Final in 2002, while France have never taken part in the title game. Their third place finish from 2014 was France’s only time on the podium.Remember that the last time Argentina met France at the FIBA Basketball World Cup was in 2006, which Argentina won, 80-70. In fact, France have never beaten Argentina at the World Cup in three tries. The French have beaten Argentina just once at the world senior level, and that was seven years ago in London 2012. Defeating Argentina would be another milestone they can notch with a win in the Semi-Finals.Related2019 FIBA WC: New Winner To Emerge After Defending Champions USA CrashoutSeptember 12, 2019In “BasketBall”2019 FIBA WC: QF Pairings Complete As D’Tigers Get 17th PositionSeptember 10, 2019In “BasketBall”2019 FIBA World Cup: Record Number NBA Players On Team Rosters In ChinaSeptember 3, 2019In “BasketBall”last_img read more

Seamus O’Domhnaill Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council spoke of his pride in Ballyliffin, in Donegal and in the North West Region during his time at the tournament telling Ballyliffin Golf Club that “you were the pride of Donegal and it was a privilege to be associated with you in the hosting of this prestigious event”.John Farren, General Manager, Ballyliffin Golf Club signing the Distinguished Visitors Book in the presence of Cathaoirleach Cllr. Seamus O’Domhnaill during the Civic Reception hosted by Donegal County Council in the County House, Lifford on Monday night in honour of Ballyliffin Golf Club’s successful hosting of the Irish Open.Cllr O’Domhnaill added: “There were many doubters at the outset of this process, Ballyliffin was too rural, there was not enough accommodation, the infrastructure was not good enough, but you had the determination, the raw drive and the hunger to make it happen and you did. The Irish Open was a huge success and you have created a template not only for other locations in Donegal but for every rural community along the western seaboard. You showed that it is possible to not just host a world class event in such a location but that it can be a roaring success and a game changer for the development and prosperity of that area.” Presentation by Cathaoirleach Cllr. Seamus O’Domhnaill to Paddy McDermott, Captain of Ballyliffin Golf Club during Civic Reception in the County House in Lifford on Monday night in honour of Ballyliffin Golf Club’s successful hosting of the Irish Open.Chief Executive of Donegal County Council Seamus Neely thanked the Ballyliffin Golf Club for being proactive partners during the preparations and the hosting of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open saying “it was a pleasure for myself and my team to work with you on the hosting of this iconic event. It was a truly collaborative effort and was a great exemplar of what can be done in a small rural community with such a unique asset when everyone works together.“There were significant challenges and I have to give credit to you, Ballyliffin Golf Club, for making the brave decision to invest all your reserves to proceed with the hosting of this event. I am very proud of what you have achieved and what we have achieved by working with you. I am very pleased with the outcomes and the value that the success of the Irish Open has had and will continue to have for the people of Ballyliffin, Inishowen and Donegal as we work collectively in the months and years ahead.”at the Donegal County CouncilCivic Reception for Ballyliffen Golf Club. Photo Clive WassonSpeaking on behalf of Ballyliffin Golf Club, General Manager John Farren thanked Donegal County Council for hosting the Civic Reception in their honour and said that this honour should be in recognition of the people of Donegal and not just for Ballyliffin.He also acknowledged his staff in Ballyliffin Golf Club and spoke of their great pride in the club and the importance of their welcoming attitude and how this all contributed to the Ballyliffin Experience. He also noted that the spirit of co-operation went way beyond the club and that over the course of the tournament over 550 volunteers gave up their time to support the smooth running of the event and he thanked them sincerely for their hard work over those days.John also referred to the foresight of past members of the club saying “if it was not for the vision of those men who in the 1950’s had the foresight to buy 365 acres for the club we would not have the product we have today”.He also thanked Seamus Neely and his team in Donegal County Council who he described as the ‘biggest contributors’ to the success of the event saying “the co-operation between Donegal County Council and Derry City and Strabane District Council got our proposal over the line in that the hosting of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open was not just a gig for Donegal or Derry but for the entire North West Region”. John believes that the most important work must be done from this point on to secure the legacy of the event. “It is now about how we maximise our return for the people of Donegal. This event showcased Donegal in all its glory, it instilled pride, confidence and enthusiasm in the community and it was an opportunity for our diaspora to come home or to enjoy watching their home county on TV. The whole of Donegal deserves a massive clap on the back for what the county achieved. We now have a seat at the table and we showed the world that we can host a world class event like the Irish Open.”(Pictured: John Geoghegan, President of Ballyliffin Golf Club, Seamus Neely, Donegal County Council, John Farren, Ballyliffin Golf Club, Paddy McDermott, Captain of Ballyliffin Golf Club, Marlene Kane, Lady Captain of Ballyliffin Golf Club, Anne Butler, Lady President of Ballyliffin Golf Club and Cllr.

Delhi Police to take Israeli diplomat attack to Georgia and Bangkok

first_imgThe Delhi Police said on Saturday they were sending teams to Georgia and Bangkok on the trail of evidence in connection with the bombing of an Israeli diplomat’s car in New Delhi.The police’s special cell also made its first official mention of a connection to Iran in an in-camera hearing at a Delhi court, according to sources.The police have already arrested Indian journalist Syed Mohammad Kazmi in connection with the February 13 attack, which allegedly saw a man on a motorbike attach a bomb to the car carrying Israeli diplomat Tal Yehoshua-Koren. A similar attack appeared to have been foiled in Tbilsi, Georgia the same day, with a driver for the local Israeli embassy discovering a bomb under the car and getting the police to defuse it. The next day, Bangkok police claimed that Iranians were behind a series of explosions that injured five people in the Thai capital.The special cell believes Kazmi was in touch with the perpetrators of these attacks. He was arrested on March 6, with the special cell claiming he had been in touch with four Iranians who allegedly carried out the attack.According to sources, the application to extend the probe moved in the court of chief metropolitan magistrate Vinod Yadav included references of the evidence recovered from Kazmi’s cell phone records connecting him to the other alleged attackers. It also mentioned the alleged involvement of Iranians, likely to be connected to a number of people from that country for whom the court has issued non-bailable warrants previously.advertisementBut the information won’t directly enter the public domain or even be given to the accused after the police invoked a section of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act that would keep it a secret.Kazmi, meanwhile, wants a probe into his ‘missing’ remand papers. After getting some relief from a sessions judge who ordered that Kazmi be given his remand papers despite the secrecy concerns, the journalist’s counsel has now moved a plea, looking into the documents that appeared to have gone ” missing”. Court staff had been unable to locate the remand papers for several weeks before suddenly finding them on the day a plea regarding the documents was being heard.last_img read more
