Adopt-A-Pet Dog of the Week

first_imgFacebook8Tweet0Pin0My name is Abby, I am 6 ½ years old, and I love everyone and everything!  I enjoy walks, car rides, playing in the play yards with other dogs & volunteers!  I also like kids and cats. I am currently looking for a family that is willing to work with some of my environmental, climate, food allergies. I must find a family or person who lives in a warmer climate, either east of the mountains, or south. This climate would be ideal for me, and I would no longer suffer from the allergies. I am a yellow lab and will make the perfect companion and family member for years to come. I hope to meet you soon!

Bombers blast past J. Lloyd Crowe Hawks

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily SportsFreshman point guard Garrett Perry had a breakout game as the L.V. Rogers Bombers blasted the J. Lloyd Crowe Hawks 76-44 in Kootenay High School Boy’s Basketball League action Thursday night at the Hangar.Perry checked in with 20 points, but it was his fine distribution of the ball that caught the attention of Bomber head coach Blair D’Andrea.“Garrett stepped up at the point guard position,” D’Andrea said. “He hasn’t been playing with a lot of confidence of late but tonight he distributed the ball well and hit a lot of his shots.”“He deserved the 20 points he got tonight,” he added.Bombers turned a close game early into an easy win, especially after struggling Tuesday against Mount Sentinel Wildcats.Jason D’Andrea led all scorers with 24 points, including three from three-point land. John Zak had 18 points before spraining an ankle.Maverick Seed was a force on the boards for LVR. Jesse Zak also left the game with an ankle injury.“I’m happy with my UN (United Nations) team on the bench,” D’Andrea said with a chuckle. “They (David Chen, Jae Tak and Leonard Batubura) all chipped in with valuable floor time.”LVR is idle until Feb. 4-5 when the Bombers host a four-team tournament. The event is combined with four girls teams.On the boy’s side are Mount Sentinel, Selkirk Storm of Kimberley and Kalamalka Lakers of [email protected]last_img read more

PSG see off Monaco to seal fifth straight League Cup

first_imgKylian Mbappe was a constant menace and perhaps the difference between the two sides, as his current team beat his former club for the second successive final after last year’s 4-1 victory.“Tonight there was a great Kylian on the other side, he was the difference in the game,” said Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim.“I think we played with the right attitude, always tried to look for a goal after the penalty.”The capital club’s win also extended their all-time record amount of League Cup crowns to eight and stretched their winning streak in domestic Cup competitions to 40 matches since a French Cup defeat by Montpellier in January 2014.The holders were awarded a spot-kick after only four minutes, as Polish centre-back Kamil Glik brought down Mbappe.After a three-minute wait for the decision to be confirmed by VAR, Cavani stepped up to beat Subasic and grab his 34th goal of the season.Paris Saint Germain striker Edinson Cavani celebrates after scoring during their French Ligue 3-0 victory over Monaco on March 31, 2018.Monaco responded well and Belgian midfielder Youri Tielemans fired over after some quick build-up play.But PSG doubled their advantage in the 21st minute as Mbappe set Di Maria through on goal with a wonderful pass, and the Argentinian international fired a low shot under goalkeeper Subasic to score for the third League Cup final in a row.Rony Lopes wasted a golden opportunity for Monaco to halve the deficit as he chipped wide with only PSG goalkeeper Kevin Trapp to beat.Just seconds later it was Cavani’s turn to squander a magnificent chance, miskicking off target after Mbappe had laid the ball on a plate for him with the goal gaping.Trapp’s blushes were spared shortly afterwards, as after his error allowed a Radamel Falcao header to drop into the net, VAR ruled the goal out for offside.Jardim’s Monaco put up a much better fight than 12 months ago, and Portuguese winger Lopes came agonisingly close early in the second half when his curling effort flicked the top of the crossbar.Mbappe, who joined PSG from Monaco in a 180-million-euro deal last year, continued to look dangerous but proved wasteful in front of goal as he prodded past the post just two minutes after Subasic had saved at his feet.But the 19-year-old continued to create opportunities, and it was his jinking run which ended with Cavani slotting into the corner.The striker has now scored eight goals in French League Cup finals, after previous doubles in 2014, 2015 and last year.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Paris Saint Germain players celebrate after winning the French Ligue One with a 3-0 win over Monaco on March 31, 2018.BORDEAUX, France, Apr 1- Paris Saint-Germain claimed their fifth consecutive French League Cup title as an Edinson Cavani double helped them ease to a 3-0 victory over Monaco in Saturday’s final at Bordeaux.The Uruguayan gave PSG an eighth-minute lead from the penalty spot after a lengthy delay for a video assistant referee review, before Angel Di Maria beat Danijel Subasic at his near post to make it two and Cavani completed the scoring late on.last_img read more

Mudslides isolate 300 tourists in Alaska national park

first_imgDenali National Park: Three hundred tourists are stranded in a national park in Alaska after heavy rains triggered mudslides and caused excess water from a culvert to damage a road. The superintendent of Denali National Park and Preserve closed Denali Park Road to all traffic at mile 30 on Friday. The road is the only one inside the vast park. The National Park Service said in a news release it anticipates reopening the road Saturday. The park service says officials are working to ensure the safety and comfort of those effected. Shuttle buses are gathering people at the Toklat Rest Area temporarily while road crews continue to address hazard areas. Similar debris flows led to daylong traffic restrictions last week. Continued heavy rains since kept the road and surrounding tundra saturated with water. (AP)last_img

Alberta politicians rejoice over Court decision against the provinces bitumen shipment restrictions

first_imgVANCOUVER – The B.C. Court of Appeal says the province cannot restrict oil shipments through its borders, in a decision that marks a win for the future of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.#BREAKING Unconstitutional: In a unanimous decision by the B.C. Court of Appeal, a panel of judges has ruled B.C. cannot move ahead with a law to allow it to control the flow of heavy oil moving through its borders. #cdnpoli #bcpoli— Martin MacMahon (@martinmacmahon) May 24, 2019The province filed a constitutional reference question to the court that asked whether it had the authority to create a permitting regime for companies that wished to increase their flow of diluted bitumen.A five-judge Appeal Court panel agreed unanimously that B.C.’s proposed legislation was not constitutional because it interferes with the federal government’s exclusive jurisdiction over interprovincial pipelines.The news is welcome to Alberta politicians who fought this proposed law when it was introduced.“When the B.C. government threatened to block our oil, we used the wine ban to force them to court,” said NDP leader Rachel Notley. “We worked hard to talk directly to British Columbians about the importance of Canada’s energy industry and today, the majority are in support of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. The case for the pipeline just got stronger and investor certainty in Alberta along with it. Turns out BC’s toolbox was more Fisher Price than DeWalt.”Premier Jason Kenney also responded, calling on Prime Minister Trudeau to push the pipeline project forwardIt’s official: Courts have unanimously ruled that B.C. has no authority to ban Alberta oil in a [email protected], it’s time for you to do the right thing.

Cosmopolitan Legend Helen Gurley Brown Dies at 90

first_imgHelen Gurley Brown, who made Cosmopolitan an American and worldwide institution during her 1965-1997 stint as editor-in-chief, passed away this morning (Aug. 13) at New York’s Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. She was 90 years old.Hearst Corp. president/CEO (since 1979) Frank A. Bennack, Jr., said in a statement that “it would be hard to overstate the importance to Hearst of [Brown’s] success with Cosmopolitan, or the value of the friendship many of us enjoyed with her. Helen was one of the world’s most recognized magazine editors and book authors, and a true pioneer for women in journalism—and beyond.Below is the tribute that FOLIO:’s sister publication min paid to Helen Gurley Brown when she turned 90 on Feb. 18: It is well-known that the Arkansas-born Helen Gurley Brown’s “résumé” when hired in 1965 by the late Hearst Magazines president Richard Deems (1913-2009) was her seminal Sex and the Single Girl (Simon & Schuster/1962), but what is less known is that Brown had zero editorial experience when she first met Deems and the Hearst hierarchy. As min reported (April 11, 1990) at Brown’s 25th anniversary:She went to Hearst with the idea for a new women’s magazine…one that would be sexy, uncompromising, and with an editorial philosophy of women to fulfill themselves in all aspirations from career to fashion to home life to relationships.Impressed, Hearst executives reasoned that instead of starting something new, why not adapt Brown’s innovative approach to a magazine that needed an infusion of fresh thinking—their own [since 1886] Cosmopolitan. And the rest, as they say, is history.Indeed. In 1965, Cosmo’s circulation was 782,000; ad pages, 355; and ad revenues, $1.5 million. The latter was chump change next to the $159 million generated in 1995, so who would argue that Brown is the greatest magazine turnaround artist in history?Under current Cosmo editor-in-chief (since August 1998) Kate White, the 2012 rate base has soared to 3 million (nearly half from the newsstand) and the $390 million ad revenues reached last year makes the 1995 sum look like chump change. But the soul of the Fun, Fearless Female branding by White and publishing director Donna Lagani (whose since-1995 tenure intersected her with Brown) in print, digital/apps, events (Fun, Fearless Males/Females, Bachelors, etc.), radio (Sirius XM), television (Canada), and more is Brown’s Cosmo Girl.The magazine’s candidness about sex and relationships has gone from Brown’s one-of-a-kind (remember the Burt Reynolds pictorial in 1971?) to many imitators, but there is only one Cosmo.And only one Helen Gurley Brown. That Cosmo International has expanded to 60-plus editions in such heretofore unthinkable places as Armenia, Israel, Malaysia, Mongolia, and Vietnam gives true meaning to Make Love, not War. Sex and the Single Girl was the first of 11 books by Brown (many were best-sellers), and she serves as a role model and inspiration for women throughout the world.Now, she is a philanthropist, with the $30 million donated by her in the memory of her late husband David Brown (the Jaws/Cocoon/Driving Miss Daisy producer was a legend in his own right) to the journalism school at Columbia University and to the engineering school at Stanford University. The David and Helen Gurley Brown Institute of Media Innovation is quite a legacy to a woman whose influence will be long remembered.And we are honored to step into her parlor.last_img read more

MS DhoniVirat Kohli relationship Ravi Shastri reveals what keeps them going

first_imgBack in 2012, Virat Kohli was struggling to get runs in Test cricket and was very close to losing his place in the side, but he found a vocal supporter in his captain MS Dhoni. He vindicated this decision by slamming a century in Adelaide and has not looked back since. And now, when Dhoni was struggling to get going in ODIs, Kohli threw all his support behind the former captain. The two combine beautifully on the field and Indian cricket prospers.The two blokes who are stark opposite to each other add the perfect balance to the side and head coach Ravi Shastri spoke at length about how the duo have been contributing to the Indian side. “Each one has his own style and each one is different. When you mention Virat and MS, yes, they are different, the way they play and the way they captain. MS was the senior man when Virat was coming through the ranks,” Shastri told Mirror Now.’Mutual respect for each other is massive’ MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli combine beautifullyReuters”Virat gave him the respect he deserved. Now MS is not the captain, Virat is, so MS does the same thing. The mutual respect for each other is massive and that’s all you want as a coach,” he further added.Such is the bond between the two players that Dhoni has a free hand to conduct the way bowlers and fielders strategise on the field even in the presence of Kohli. The players too have said that Dhoni’s tactical nous and advice from behind the stumps is exceptional.Former Australian cricketer Shane Warne too said that Kohli is a terrific leader but the presence of Dhoni in the side gives him the tactical edge as well as he a wealth of experience to guide him. He also believed that India and Kohli needed Dhoni’s calmness in the World Cup when the pressure will be extreme. MS Dhoni, Virat KohliRobert Cianflone/Getty Images”Virat Kohli is a terrific leader but several times we can have experience of MS Dhoni to help Virat when pressure is on. It’s easy to captain a side when things are going well but when it’s tough you need experience like you saw in MS Dhoni. MS Dhoni is a great player,” Warne said.last_img read more
