Keeping it Together on a Boat Trip to Kadavu, Fiji

 Cache   

Imagine you and your friends, riding out into the open ocean aboard a trusted boat with the wind at your back and your hands at the helm. Living on a country made of over 300 islands, venturing to one of the outer islands by boat is often the best way—and sometimes the only way—to get there. Kadavu, Fiji is an island group that’s largely undeveloped with the main island of Kadavu covered in...

A Grip on Sports: Young Zags and an old story highlight a Cougar-less Saturday

 Cache   

A GRIP ON SPORTS • It’s a rare fall Saturday the past couple decades in which we haven’t had to work. Which opened an almost unlimited vista of opportunities on a clear, crisp day. We stayed (or went) inside. But that doesn’t mean we didn’t watch sports. And learn some things.

•••••••

• Thanks to a family friend, Kim and I were able to attend the Kraziness in the Kennel with some VIP perks. What does that mean? Our line was shorter, we got to mingle and watch TV, enjoy a cold beverage – don’t worry, I had diet soda – and sit in decent seats.

Oh, and catch up with some old friends, which is always nice. Then find out the oldest of Gonzaga’s friendly men’s basketball players is out again, though Mark Few wouldn’t term Killian Tillie’s absence Saturday injury-based. Sure, Tillie had surgery again, but it was preventative, sort of like why we take a cholesterol pill every night.

We do it to make sure there are no problems down the road.

As John Blanchette points out in his column this morning, that would go down easier with the Zag faithful if it applied to anyone other than Tillie, the most snakebit player Gonzaga has had since at least Josh Heytvelt.

The guy sitting in front of me sure had a lot to say about that, none of it positive. His response to the news of Tillie's surgery seemed a little out of proportion, venom-wise. And we thought GU fans were more of the nurturing, loving type.

Few is going to have to be a bit more nurturing and loving this season, that’s for sure. All but three players on the court yesterday afternoon were new to the roster (four when you count Tillie). Two are senior transfers (Admon Gilder and Ryan Gilder, both guards and both players who will contribute). The rest are freshmen.

Six of them.

Do they have talent? Of course they do. They wouldn’t be at GU if they didn’t. But nothing can make them older except time, practice and a tough non-conference schedule.

The Zags will scrimmage with Michigan State, a lot of folks’ pick to win the NCAA title. They will play at Texas A&M, Gilder’s old school. They will face quality in the Bahamas at a Thanksgiving tournament. They play at Washington and Arizona, two of the Pac-12’s better teams, in December. And they host North Carolina, the bluest of blue bloods.

No wonder Few told the crowd it would play a bigger-than-usual role in helping his team this season.

Their voices and support won’t help, though, as much as the passage of time.

• There is one nice perk when the Pac-12 team you follow (in my case, for work) has a bye. You get to focus on the conference’s other games. Sometimes that isn’t good.

If you happened to watch Stanford’s upset of Washington (and I did) last night, you were able to experience a little of why the conference has such a poor reputation concerning its officiating.

Sorry to go there, but there were so many little things done poorly, it undermines the fans’ confidence the conference’s representatives will get the big things right.

Case in point, a first-half punt. What happened seems minor, but it isn’t. Mainly because it was so embarrassing.

With time running down in the half and Stanford hoping to extend a 13-10 lead, the Huskies’ Joel Whitford uncorked a line-drive punt. It was so short it hit a Washington player in the leg at the Stanford 27-yard line, then kicked forward and rolled dead at the 10.

Everyone in the stadium knew it happened, including the officials and the ESPN announcers. What the former group didn’t know, however, was exactly where. Those of us at home did – as should of the folks in the replay booth. All we (and they) had to do was hit one button on the remote to see. It was the 27. That’s where the ball should have been marked. It wasn’t. When referee Kevin Mar came on our screen to explain, he told us about the touching and where it occurred. He said the 20-yard line, a point at which the ball had been rolling free. He and his crew were wrong.

This is what replay is meant for. The clock is stopped, the mistake is obvious. Buzz down and fix it. Nope. The ball stayed at the 20. Thousand of people watching at home, including the folks in charge of the conference’s officiating and those in charge of its image, knew it was wrong. Fix it. Nope. The ball stayed at the 20.

By the way, those seven yards may have ultimately cost Stanford a shot at a long Jet Toner field goal attempt. We will never know. But we do know the Cardinal didn’t start their possession in the right spot.

•••

WSU: Even though Theo Lawson was enjoying the bye week by celebrating friends’ nuptials (hey, he put his plans on Twitter, so I don’t feel bad sharing), he still talked with Mike Leach and let the Cougar coach enlighten us on defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys’ departure. Though Leach’s comments didn’t shed a whole lot of light on the change. …The letters to the editor on Leach's comments following the Utah loss were mixed in nature. … Elsewhere in the Pac-12, the standings seem a bit upside down right now. … Stanford controlled the line of scrimmage, made plays when it had to and ultimately held off Washington in the upset of the day. The Huskies never found their rhythm in the loss. … California shut outOregon for a half, then the Ducks asserted themselves to gain a tight home win. The Bears' lack of offense cost them in the end. … The Arizona offense came alive behind a healthyKhalil Tate and the Wildcats won in Colorado. The Buffs might be better than their record, however. They certainly are beat up. … UCLAcertainly isn't all that good. The Bruins looked poor again as Oregon State went into the Rose Bowl and outscoredthe host team, adding to Chip Kelly's woes. … The college athletic model will change.

Gonzaga: The Kraziness in the Kennel was just that, especially in the way the Gonzaga students went out of their way to make a quartet of recruits feel wanted (Justin Reed has a story). Besides the Killie injury (as we said, covered in John’s column), the news was a nearly new roster for the Zags. In Mark Few’s years on campus there has probably a season with more turnover – after more than three decades as an assistant and a head coach, it’s hard to imagine anything new – but we can’t think of one. Jim covers that aspect of the day. … Jim has another story as he passed along the news freshman Oumar Ballo, the most physically impressive player on the court, is still waiting for the NCAA to rule on his eligibility. … Jesse Tinsley braved the crowds of cameras for the best shots in this photo gallery.

EWU: Our Ryan Collingwood was in Sacramento, probably to catch up with his yearly quota of In-N-Out, but also to cover the game. He has this story. … Around the Big Sky,

Idaho: A week after dropping a road game to woeful Northern Colorado – the Bears are 1-5 after losing at Northern Arizona yesterday – the Vandals looked like a Big Sky contender again Saturday. But fourth-ranked Weber State was able to hold on for 41-35 win in the Kibbie Dome. Peter Harriman has the coverage.

Whitworth: The Pirates finally played at home Saturday and my, how did they play. How does winning 82-7 sound? Dan Thompson was at the Pine Bowl and has this game story.

Preps: There was one football game left over from Friday night, pushed back to Saturday after some lightning around Albi Stadium. The was some lightning yesterday, but it was all confined to the playing surface and most of it supplied by Lewis and Clark’s Keani Guthmueller. Dave Nichols was there and he has this story on LC’s 43-36 win over Post Falls. … Gonzaga Prep wing Liam Lloyd announced his college commitment yesterday, going on social media to tell everyone he will be playing at Grand Canyon College. Dave has a story on that as well. … Mead golfer Matt Jones was under par last weekend in an event at Pebble Beach. That news is part of our local briefs.

Chiefs: Spokane’s offense stayed hot, rolling Tri-City 7-1 last night in Kennewick.

Seahawks: No game today. Isn't that odd? Let's look ahead instead.

•••       

• Because Kim and I were out and about yesterday, I didn’t get anything I wanted done. Which means my Sunday will be busy. At least the sun will be out and  temperature is going to be in the high 50s today, making the mowing and raking and fertilizing a little more enjoyable. Until later …


          

U.S. Sows Confusion Over How Bahamas Residents May Enter After Hurricane Dorian

 Cache   
Updated at 8:57 p.m. ET The Department of Homeland Security has released additional guidance on visa requirements for Bahamians trying to travel to the U.S. after Hurricane Dorian. The details follow a day of U.S. officials sending mixed signals about how Bahamians, especially those traveling by boat, will be allowed into the U.S. "Bahamians arriving to the United States by vessel must be in possession of a valid passport AND valid travel visa," the department said. Visa waivers could be granted for some travelers who fly to the U.S. and get pre-clearance. "Travelers who would otherwise qualify for the Visa Waiver Program and who travel by air from a CBP Preclearance facility in Freeport or Nassau may not need a U.S. visitor's visa." Freeport Airport was devastated by the hurricane . Monday afternoon, acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan said his agency has processed "thousands of folks" from two cruise ships as well as aircraft.

Fratelli e sorelle, benvenuti.

Ringrazio il Reverendo Padre Bernard Ardura, Presidente del Pontificio Comitato di Scienze Storiche, per le sue cortesi parole — vedendolo così sembra il vice-papa — e mi congratulo con il Comitato e con la Pontificia Commissione per l’America Latina per aver voluto commemorare, con il Congresso che si sta svolgendo ora a Roma, i 40 anni della III Conferenza Generale dell’Episcopato latinoamericano a Puebla de los Ángeles.

Sono lieto di poter incontrare, anche se brevemente, i relatori e gli organizzatori di questo evento. Vi assicuro che mi sarebbe piaciuto avere più tempo e condividere tanti vissuti ed esperienze con voi.

Se mi consentite qualche ricordo personale, a quel tempo ero Provinciale della Compagnia di Gesù in Argentina e ho seguito con molta attenzione e interesse tutto l’intenso e appassionante processo di preparazione di quella III Conferenza. Ho tenuto presenti tre fatti importanti che avrebbero di certo orientato l’evento.

Il primo è stata la decisione di san Giovanni Paolo II di realizzare il suo primo viaggio apostolico proprio in Messico e di pronunciare il discorso inaugurale della Conferenza, che ha indicato con chiarezza i cammini per il suo svolgimento. È stata come l’inaugurazione del suo lungo, itinerante e fecondo pontificato missionario.

Il secondo fatto che fin dall’inizio della preparazione della Conferenza mi è sembrato fondamentale è stato di prendere l’Esortazione apostolica Evangelii nuntiandi di san Paolo VI come sfondo e fonte di riferimento per tutta la sua realizzazione. Evangelii nuntiandi è il migliore documento pastorale del post-concilio ed è valido ancora oggi. E una cosa personale: quando sono dovuto restare a Roma, per ragioni estranee alla mia volontà, ho chiesto che mi portassero pochissimi libri, molto pochi, non più di sette, e tra quelli c’era il primo testo che ho avuto della Evangelii nuntiandi sottolineato, Redemptoris Mater di san Giovanni Paolo II, con tutti i fogli che avevo preso per dare ritiri spirituali, e il documento di Puebla tutto evidenziato con diversi colori. Questo per dirvi come in quel momento ho seguito tutto questo da vicino. Non poche volte ho ripetuto che, per me, la Evangelii nuntiandi è un documento decisivo, di grande ricchezza, nel cammino post-conciliare della Chiesa. Non solo, l’Evangelii gaudium è un elegante plagio di Evangelii nuntiandi e del documento di Aparecida. Sappiatelo, è saltata da lì. Seguendo la sua scia e insieme al Documento di Aparecida, è giunta l’Esortazione apostolica Evangelii gaudium.

Il terzo fatto importante è stato di prendere come punto di partenza le intuizioni e le opzioni profetiche della Conferenza di Medellín per compiere, a Puebla, un passo avanti nel cammino della Chiesa latinoamericana verso la sua maturità.

So che voi state studiando in proiezione i contenuti della conferenza di Puebla. Ricordo qui alcuni dei più significativi: la novità di un’autocoscienza storica della Chiesa in America Latina; una buona ecclesiologia che riprende l’immagine e il cammino del popolo di Dio nel Concilio Vaticano II; una mariologia ben inculturata; i capitoli più ricchi e creativi sull’evangelizzazione della cultura e della pietà popolare in America Latina — riguardo all’evangelizzazione delle culture, Puebla ha posto fondamenta molto serie per andare avanti —; la critica coraggiosa al mancato riconoscimento dei diritti umani e delle libertà in quei tempi vissuti nella regione; e le opzioni per i giovani, i poveri e i costruttori della società.

Molti di voi lo hanno vissuto da vicino, e abbiamo qui “l’enfant terrible” di quell’epoca, che ha saputo profetizzare e portare avanti le cose.

Si può dire che Puebla ha gettato le basi e ha aperto cammini verso Aparecida. È curioso che da Puebla si salti ad Aparecida. Santo Domingo, che ha i suoi meriti, è però rimasto lì. Perché Santo Domingo è stato molto condizionato dai compromessi. E il santo vescovo di Mariana, che è stato il redattore lì, ha dovuto negoziare con tutti affinché uscisse. A qualcosa serve, perché è buono, ma non ha l’invito né di Puebla né di Aparecida. Certo, sono le alterne vicende della storia; senza sminuire la qualità di Santo Domingo, Puebla è stata un pilastro e si è saltati ad Aparecida. Basterebbe affermare solo questo per evidenziare la bella opportunità di commemorare i suoi 40 anni, non solo guardando indietro, ma proiettandola verso il nostro presente ecclesiale.

Continuate per favore a lavorare a queste cose, a questi documenti dell’episcopato latinoamericano, che hanno molto succo, molto midollo, molto succo. E che sono capaci di portare avanti ricchezze molto grandi dell’America Latina, soprattutto la pietà popolare. Alcuni in Argentina si chiedevano però perché la pietà popolare è tanto ricca. Perché non è stata clericalizzata. Dato che ai preti non importava, il popolo si è organizzato a modo suo. È vero che san Paolo VI al numero 28 di Evangelii nuntiandi ha dovuto dire che alcune cose andavano purificate, ma dopo aver lodato il movimento e averne cambiato il nome. Prima era religiosità popolare, ora è pietà popolare, è stato lui a cambiare il nome. Aparecida va oltre e parla di spiritualità popolare. Grazie per tutto quello che state facendo. Vi invito a pregare insieme la Vergine di Guadalupe e a chiedere la sua benedizione.

Daily News Links Are Below These Opening Questions And Warnings
How much carbon monoxide are you in when in any motor vehicle?

Did you know that many people do not measure the air they breathe?

After prevention there is no greater awareness than measurement.
Awareness leads to quick thinking. Measurement leads to quick action.

Are you in the know?

Do I know enough about carbon monoxide and carbon monoxide poisoning to justify never knowing how much is in the air I breathe every day, everywhere I go?”

There are some people who want to be notified of the presence of carbon monoxide at levels or concentrations as soon as the gas is present, at concentrations well below those that can instigate poor health symptoms but not be high enough levels to sound the CO alarm they own.

There are some people who do not want to push a button on their CO alarm to see what low, aggravating levels of the poison might be in their home, or anywhere.


The most recommended CO Alarm in U.S. is a high level alarm

We have all been CO poisoned, some more than others
We have all inhaled carbon monoxide. We are a world of fire users.

What is in the air you are breathing right now?

What will you be doing today; walking into poison?
Who will be responsible for the air you breathe?
You may be the only person who can prevent your own poisoning.
We are all vulnerable to carbon monoxide exposure and poisoning.
Everyone has been poisoned by CO and will be poisoned again. The degree of the poisoning depends upon allowing yourself to be in a situation where someone else controls the air you breathe and the mechanisms for alarming notification.

Please read the alarm information on the package and in the instructions that come with the carbon monoxide alarm. Know that if it is a U.L. 2034 Listed product (or CSA 6.19 Listed), it is a high level alarm that has been tested to alarm no sooner than 70 PPM at the lowest (the alarm must resist for one hour when above this level) and when over 400 PPM before 15 minutes at the highest concentration, after resisting alarming for 4 minutes when over this level.

Know when your fire department and emergency responders begin wearing their breathing apparatus and what their civilian evacuation levels are for carbon monoxide; it may be as soon as the gas is present in your presence. Pregnant women, infants & children, people with heart & respiratory struggles, those suffering depression or chronic headaches and all people of vulnerable health should be alerted as soon as the gas begins to concentrate, around 10 PPM (parts per million) or lower.

You most likely need a low level carbon monoxide detector to sound off when carbon monoxide hazards are just beginning, not after you’ve been exposed to levels that make you have headaches, flu-like symptoms, increased tiredness, heart stresses or worse.

Do not take risks with carbon monoxide. Take responsibility for the air you breathe and the combustion systems you are responsible for. If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for others, unless you think $45.00, high level protection is good enough.

Help prevent injuries and deaths; don’t guess about carbon monoxide. Measure carbon monoxide for safety and knowledge. The more you test the more you learn. GET BUSY

Measurement is continuing education at its best. Bob Dwyer, CSME Carbon Monoxide Safety

U.S. Carbon Monoxide Laws for each state
National Conference of State Legislatures
As of March 2018, a majority of states have enacted statutes regarding carbon monoxide (CO) detectors, and another 11 have promulgated regulations on CO detectors. Alaska requires detectors approved by the state fire marshal be installed in all dwellings. Connecticut requires them in all new construction, as does New Hampshire, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia. Florida also requires them in new construction, and in every room with a boiler. Minnesota passed a law requiring detectors in motor boats.

CO Detectors in U.S. Homes
27 states and the District of Columbia require carbon monoxide detectors in private dwellings via state statute: Alaska, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia (via adoption of the International Residential Code), Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Certain states limit the installation to buildings with fossil-fuel burning devices, others only require the device be installed upon the sale of the property or unit.

Another 11 states require carbon monoxide detectors in private dwellings regulatorily through the adoption of the International Residential Code or via an amendment to their state’s building code: Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wyoming.

CO Detectors in U.S. Schools
California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maine and Maryland require carbon monoxide (CO) detectors in school buildings.

CO Detectors in U.S. Hotels and Motels
Fourteen states require the installation of carbon monoxide detectors in hotels and motels under the statute. - Three of those states (New Jersey, Vermont and Wisconsin) have complementary administrative regulations. - Two states (Kansas and Washington) have requirements through administrative regulations alone.

Carbon monoxide safety, we are all in this together, now!

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865, bio link)


Daily News Links Are Below These Opening Questions And Warnings
How much carbon monoxide are you in when in any motor vehicle?

Did you know that many people do not measure the air they breathe?

After prevention there is no greater awareness than measurement.
Awareness leads to quick thinking. Measurement leads to quick action.

Are you in the know?

Do I know enough about carbon monoxide and carbon monoxide poisoning to justify never knowing how much is in the air I breathe every day, everywhere I go?”

There are some people who want to be notified of the presence of carbon monoxide at levels or concentrations as soon as the gas is present, at concentrations well below those that can instigate poor health symptoms but not be high enough levels to sound the CO alarm they own.

There are some people who do not want to push a button on their CO alarm to see what low, aggravating levels of the poison might be in their home, or anywhere.


The most recommended CO Alarm in U.S. is a high level alarm

Standard for Single and Multiple Station Carbon Monoxide Alarms
UL 2034
1.3 Carbon monoxide alarms covered by this standard are not intended to alarm when exposed to long-term, low-level carbon monoxide exposures or slightly higher short-term transient carbon monoxide exposures, possibly caused by air pollution and/or properly installed/maintained fuel-fired appliances and fireplaces…

Please Note: "Place a carbon monoxide alarm with a digital display on a seat in the motor vehicle when you are out driving in emergency snow conditions (or always for that specific). Harmful levels of carbon monoxide (CO) can penetrate inside a motor vehicle just due to prevailing winds and exhaust not moving away from the vehicle but under it. If you want to learn more about carbon monoxide, begin measuring it with a personal CO monitor everywhere you go." Bob Dwyer, CSME Carbon Monoxide Safety

We have all been CO poisoned, some more than others
We have all inhaled carbon monoxide. We are a world of fire users.

What is in the air you are breathing right now?

What will you be doing today; walking into poison?
Who will be responsible for the air you breathe?
You may be the only person who can prevent your own poisoning.
We are all vulnerable to carbon monoxide exposure and poisoning.
Everyone has been poisoned by CO and will be poisoned again. The degree of the poisoning depends upon allowing yourself to be in a situation where someone else controls the air you breathe and the mechanisms for alarming notification.

Please read the alarm information on the package and in the instructions that come with the carbon monoxide alarm. Know that if it is a U.L. 2034 Listed product (or CSA 6.19 Listed), it is a high level alarm that has been tested to alarm no sooner than 70 PPM at the lowest (the alarm must resist for one hour when above this level) and when over 400 PPM before 15 minutes at the highest concentration, after resisting alarming for 4 minutes when over this level.

Know when your fire department and emergency responders begin wearing their breathing apparatus and what their civilian evacuation levels are for carbon monoxide; it may be as soon as the gas is present in your presence. Pregnant women, infants & children, people with heart & respiratory struggles, those suffering depression or chronic headaches and all people of vulnerable health should be alerted as soon as the gas begins to concentrate, around 10 PPM (parts per million) or lower.

You most likely need a low level carbon monoxide detector to sound off when carbon monoxide hazards are just beginning, not after you’ve been exposed to levels that make you have headaches, flu-like symptoms, increased tiredness, heart stresses or worse.

Do not take risks with carbon monoxide. Take responsibility for the air you breathe and the combustion systems you are responsible for. If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for others, unless you think $45.00, high level protection is good enough.

Help prevent injuries and deaths; don’t guess about carbon monoxide. Measure carbon monoxide for safety and knowledge. The more you test the more you learn. GET BUSY

Measurement is continuing education at its best. Bob Dwyer, CSME Carbon Monoxide Safety

Cão é encontrado vivo sob escombros cinco semanas após furacão nas Bahamas

 Cache   
Apelidado de 'Miracle', ele sobreviveu sem comida, bebendo água de chuva, e agitou a cauda ao ver que seria resgatado. Localização foi possível graças a uso de drone com infravermelho. Cachorro é encontrado vivo semanas depois da passagem do furacão Dorian, nas Bahamas Um cachorro foi encontrado vivo debaixo de escombros mais de um mês após um furacão destruir completamente o local onde ele vivia nas Bahamas. O vira-latas, com cerca de um ano de idade, sobreviveu bebendo água da chuva e estava extremamente magro ao ser resgatado, mas ainda assim balançou a cauda ao avistar as pessoas que o salvariam. Apelidado de “Miracle” (milagre, em inglês), o cão morava em Marsh Harbour, nas Bahamas, uma região atingida pelo furacão Dorian, em 1º de setembro. Ele só foi localizado em 4 de outubro, graças ao infravermelho de um drone. O porta-voz da ONG responsável pelo resgate, a Big Dog Ranch Rescue, explicou à CNN que Miracle quase foi esmagado. Segundo Chase Scott, depois que o prédio desabou, o animal ficou preso debaixo de vidros quebrados, um aparelho de ar condicionado e destroços da construção. Apesar de conseguir beber água de chuva, ele não teve como se alimentar, e por isso suas costelas estavam aparentes quando foi salvo. Agora, recebendo alimentação e cuidados veterinários, além de muito carinho dos voluntários da ONG, ele aguarda que seus donos apareçam. Se isso não acontecer, será encaminhado para adoção após se recuperar completamente. De acordo com Scott, a Big Dog Ranch Rescue conseguiu resgatar 139 cães de áreas atingidas pelo Dorian, e já reuniu muitos deles com seus donos. A passagem de Dorian pelas Bahamas deixou pelo menos 50 mortos e milhares de desaparecidos.
