Each person at Geocaching HQ brings their own unique talent to advancing the adventure. Some write code for the website, others design images for the apps, and some shoot videos explaining it all. Cindy or  Frau Potter works with geocaching community volunteers. This is her Mega-Event experience.Cindy a.k.a. Frau PotterAt Latitude 61, this time of year days are long and nights are short. With sunrise at 4:00am and sunset at 11:00pm, I found this left plenty of time for meeting geocachers at Mega Finland 2014 – Amazing Geocaching. In fact, more than 1,600 geocachers attended this event and I needed all that extra time to meet them all! My weekend began with a 3-hour train ride from Helsinki, Finland to the event location at Himos holiday resort near Jämsä, Finland. I arrived just in time to witness hundreds of geocachers helping to set up the geo-village, including erecting tents and preparing campfires. It was terrific to see all the collaboration. The event organizers (Gnutcha&Joorz) are veterans at hosting Mega-Events. This was the third and biggest, Mega-Event they organized. They were understandably proud of this free event. The Himos resort supplied the location, showers, toilets and water free of charge in return for the paying campers and cottage rentals. Gnutcha&Joorz said the official expenses for the event came in at about 60 Euros.Team Papan PoppooMega-Event Organizers Gnutcha&JoorzMy amazing team – Jarom, arnevela, tuulituuli and Gandal491The primary activity at the Mega-Event were two Adventure courses (one competitive and one leisure) and 10 fun Lab Caches. Geocachers were divided into teams to complete these courses. A highlight of my weekend was working with my team – Jarom, arnevela, tuulituuli and Gandal491 – on the course and Lab Caches. We had a lot of laughs together.My favorite stations were “Flaming Tower, “Robin Hood” and “Bingo”. The Flaming Tower required three geocachers – one to pump water, one to aim the spray at the target and one to grab the container as it floated to the top. What a great activity for such a hot day!Careful aim brings geocache container floating to the topRobin Hood looked like a modern practice for Hunger Games, except no one got hurt. And the Bingo activity was a creative Lab Cache that required you to get signatures from event volunteers who had completed certain geocaching accomplishments. The Bingo activity was a brilliant way to make sure participants talked with volunteers.Geocachers prepping for Hunger GamesGaldal491 signs for Bingo lab cacheQueue waiting to sign coffee event logbookIt was terrific to see why geocaching is so popular in Finland and to meet so many new friends.

India vs Australia: MS Dhoni hits 1st ODI fifty since December 2017India vs Australia: MS Dhoni hits 1st ODI fifty since December 2017

first_imgAustralia vs India, 1st ODIFull Scorecard MS Dhoni hit his first half-century in 13 months as India continued to fight in the first ODI of a three-match series against Australia in Sydney. Playing his 50th ODI against Australia, Dhoni walked out to bat when India were in deep trouble at 4 for 3 before stitching up a crucial partnership with Rohit Sharma for the fourth wicket.Dhoni had a poor run in 2018 when he scored only 275 runs with a best of 42 not out against South Africa in Johannesburg on February 10. Despite a sensational time in the 2018 IPL, MS Dhoni struggled in international cricket and was even booed during the second ODI against England at Lord’s where he ploughed his way to 42 in a steep chase.Dhoni now has 68 half-centuries from 333 ODIs. On Saturday, he also became the fifth batsman to score 10,000 ODI runs for India when he got off the mark with a single.Dhoni was out for 51 off 96 balls when Behrendorff trapped him LBW with a fuller delivery on the stumps.India are out of reviews and Dhoni has to go… #CloseMatters#AUSvIND | @GilletteAU pic.twitter.com/WRYVQPxwIMcricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 12, 2019India vs Australia 1st ODI in Sydney – Live ScoreExperts have called for MS Dhoni to play first-class cricket to regain his form ahead of the World Cup but the World Cup-winning captain has stayed away from domestic cricket. On Saturday, Dhoni looked a little rusty in the early stages of his innings but showed his class with a huge six off Nathan [email protected] brings up his 68th ODI FIFTY #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/EilrChK5eZBCCI (@BCCI) January 12, 2019Dhoni’s form over the last couple of years have raised several questions but skipper Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri have stood strongly behind the former captain.It was a typically gutsy Dhoni innings. Sunil Gavaskar had told India Today he expected Dhoni to work singles, twos and threes on the large-sized ground and that is exactly what he did. MS Dhoni waited for his chances and was unfazed even as the asking rate climbed up.This knock must bring a sigh of relief for MS Dhoni, who had last scored a half-century against Sri Lanka on December 10, 2017. He had scored 65 even as India were bowled out for 112 on a green pitch in Dharamsala.MS Dhoni, for long India’s first choice-wicketkeeper across formats, retired from Test cricket in December 2014. Recently, Dhoni has been under pressure with the emergence of Rishabh Pant, who made his Test debut against England, scored a hundred in only his third Test match.Against West Indies at home, Pant scored 92 in each Test before smashing 350 runs and taking 20 catches in the four-Test series against Australia.Also Read | Rohit Sharma hits fifty in 1st innings after becoming a dadAlso Read | Bhuvneshwar Kumar 4th slowest Indian to reach 100 ODI wicketsAlso Read | Rayudu comes on to bowl, questions raised on the legality of his actionlast_img read more

Newly Appointed JPs Called to be Standard BearersNewly Appointed JPs Called to be Standard Bearers

first_imgThe parish of Kingston has 53 more Justices of the Peace (JPs), who were sworn in on April 30.The ceremony was held at the Leslie Ridout Hall, Kingston Bookshop Limited, in downtown Kingston, and presided over by Custos of Kingston, Hon. Steadman Fuller.In his charge to the new JPs, the Custos urged them to hold fast to the principles of integrity and honesty in carrying out their tasks, adding that their role is not only to sign documents.“We are determined to move the role of Justices of the Peace beyond that of signing documents. I firmly believe that we can assist in the transformation of the justice system that we have. For example, we play our roles as mediators in the communities in which we live and work; volunteer our service in the courts; and assist the critical area of visitation in lockups,” he said.The Custos encouraged them to be standard bearers in their communities, adding that his intention is to have JPs in Kingston making a significant contribution in the areas in which they have been trained.He informed that currently, Justices of the Peace are being trained to serve more effectively in the Lay Magistrate’s Court.“The long awaited roll out of the new curriculum for Lay Magistrates was finally approved and the specialised training that is required to serve in this area commenced recently, so we are serious about those we have pledged to serve,” the Custos said.Mr. Fuller noted that the group represented one of the largest cohort of new JPs to be sworn in, and that they were drawn from many areas of national life – business, civil service, law, education, social work, religion, media, administrators and medicine.He emphasised that the support and involvement of all citizens are needed for the dedicated Justices of the Peace to effectively fulfil the purpose for which they are being commissioned.Meanwhile, Children’s Advocate, Diahann Gordon Harrison, said the JPs are expected to discharge very important duties, “in pursuit of the just society for which we all crave.”“You have increased responsibilities, are expected to exhibit behaviour which members of your communities can emulate and with all this, you have your everyday lives to live. It’s no small task that you have taken unto yourselves and you must recognize this,” she reminded them.Mrs. Gordon Harrison said three critical words are associated with Justices of the Peace – commitment, service and integrity.“Expectation is very high and we don’t want to be disappointed. We at the Office of the Children’s Advocate look forward to working with you,” she added.With the new members in place, there are now 700 Justices of the Peace serving the parish of Kingston.Training was carried out over three to six weeks by Judge, Sonia Bertram Linton, Q.C., in conjunction with the Justice Training Institute.By Chris Patterson, JIS Reporterlast_img read more

ALS patients taking antipsychotic drug in Calgarybased trialALS patients taking antipsychotic drug in Calgarybased trial

first_imgCALGARY – Cliff Barr has no illusions about how his life is going to end but he still has hope.The 70-year-old from Okotoks, Alta., is one of 100 patients taking part in new Canada-wide clinical trial to treat ALS — a debilitating and ultimately deadly neural disease that has few treatments and no cure.“It is a difficult and an awkward disease,” Barr said Thursday at the University of Calgary, which is running the trial.“I found the idea of the clinical trial promising. It gives you a little more hope.”Barr was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, in October. It causes paralysis because the brain is no longer able to communicate with the body’s muscles.Over time, as the muscles break down, an ALS patient loses the ability to walk, talk, eat, swallow and, eventually, breathe. Experts say one in 400 Canadians will die of ALS.Even on good days, Barr said, the disease is always there.“The disease kind of reared its head and I’m a little weaker than normal,” said Barr, who retired 10 years ago. “This morning, I couldn’t do my pants up. I couldn’t brush my hair. I needed help doing the zipper up on this sweater.”Dr. Lawrence Korngut from the University of Calgary’s Cumming School of Medicine is running the clinical trial over the next 1 1/2 years at nine different Canadian universities.He said an anti-psychotic drug called pimozide slowed down the disease in zebra fish, worms and mice, as well as in humans with ALS in a limited six-week trial a couple of years ago.Korngut said the drug doesn’t address the primary cause of the disease, which destroys nerves. But he adds that it’s now believed that there’s an electrical failure that accompanies the breakdown.“This treats that electrical failure. We’re hoping by preserving that electrical function, even if the cable keeps breaking down, that will buy people time.“It will prolong life.”Korngut said people shouldn’t jump to any conclusions about how well the trial will turn out and he’s only “cautiously optimistic.”“We’ve been through this before. We know that sometimes animals behave very differently from humans and we just have to do things properly and find out these answers.”Barr said he has been told he is likely to have between three and five years to live. The research is a double-blind study so only half the participants will receive the drug. The rest get a placebo.“I am a fighter. You pay your money. You take your chances,” Barr said.“It can’t make it better. It can’t repair the muscle damage … but it can slow down the progression which would in effect help me maintain the quality of life for longer than I would have.”Korngut said it could be years before all the results are known and he grateful for those willing to volunteer.“ALS is a disease of weakness but these are the strongest people I know. These people fight this disease so courageously.”— Follow @BillGraveland on Twitterlast_img read more

Neville says England can win the womens World CupNeville says England can win the womens World Cup

first_imgThe national team manager believes his team has what it take to win the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup this summer in France.Phil Neville started working as England women national team manager in 2018.And he set his objectives very high, as he wants to win the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup with the Lionesses this summer in France.“It’s probably going to be the most open World Cup in terms of who’s going to win it. And we’re preparing to make sure we have to be at our best,” Neville was quoted by Sports Illustrated.“I said on day one I want to win the World Cup. That wasn’t me being arrogant or big-headed, that was the challenge I set myself and for my group of players.”“At Canada 2015, we came third. So progression is to get to the final, progression is to become better than third,” he added.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“USA are the No. 1 favorites. You’ve got to say France are No. 2 because they’re the home nation.”“You can never rule out Germany – we played them in SheBelieves last year and they were physically a fantastic side,” he explained.“So we’ve got to be at our very best. But so too have USA, France, Germany.”“I went to an awful lot of games – I still do now, of course – and met a lot of people in the Women’s Super League (WSL), women’s football, the managers, players etc.”“But you’re judged on your results and I felt as if, the minute we beat France 4-1 in my first game, up until then people were waiting for me to fail,” he continued.“And then we beat France – with the style of football that we played – and all of a sudden, it had almost put it to bed. From then onwards it felt as if I could start relaxing a little bit and not have to prove to people every minute of every day that I’m going to know about women’s football.”last_img read more
