Blue Bin program being removed from Fort St John

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The North Peace Gymnastics Association (NPGA) and the Canadian Diabetes Association (CDA) have jointly agreed to remove all the Blue Bins from Fort St. John due to the constant vandalism of the bins.As of Friday, October 11th, 2019, the clothing collection program will no longer be available. Chantelle Yates of the NPGA shares, although this has been a fantastic fundraiser for our club for the last two years, unfortunately, the damage to the bins and the safety of our volunteers has become a significant concern and is becoming very costly to NPGA and Diabetes Canada.An ongoing problem for the club was the bins being intentionally and regularly broken into, which created a loss for the club when trying to clean up the soiled and damaged donations.Yates shares the CDA was unable to repair the bins in a timely manner due to the remote location of the bins and in combination with people continuing to drop off donations when the bins were damaged, clothes and donations are scattered causing the donations to lose their value once exposed to the elements and becoming soiled.A concern for Yates and her volunteers was the discovery of needles amongst the damaged donations.“For safety, we have asked our volunteers to stop emptying the unlocked bins,” said Yates.The club has thrown out as much as it has saved from the program as the NPGA pays out of pocket to dispose of the damaged donations. This fundraiser brought in $3000-$5000/year for the club and Yates is very sad to see it go, but for the safety of all involved, she shares, they have not been able to get a handle of the vandalism and dumping of garbage since the issues with the red bins last year.January 31st, 2019 story on the vandalism of the bins; CLICK HERE. last_img read more

Army says no evidence to back white van allegation

“On the instructions of the Secretary Defence and the Commander of the Army, the Military Police are conducting a parallel investigation and the Military Police have been asked to fully cooperate with Police investigations too. Like in previous instances, impartial investigations, despite ranks are underway and more information could be revealed afterwards upon completion of investigations,” he added. Jayaweera, speaking to reporters at the Media Centre for the Ministry of Defence today, said that those three soldiers in question were not involved in any political agenda or any other illegal act as alleged by some, according to the investigations by the Military Police. Preliminary investigations of the Sri Lanka Military Police into Monday (20) night’s arrest of three civil-clad army soldiers with a weapon in the Mirihana area while travelling in a white van, have confirmed that neither those soldiers, nor the vehicle in question, were involved in any criminal act whatsoever.Military Spokesman, Brigadier K.J Jayaweera said that necessary legal action would be instituted against the breach of military law, if any, upon completion of Military Police investigations . He pointed out that the vehicle has been issued to Major General Prasanna Silva. Asked by media personnel whether any action had been taken against Major General Silva, to who the weapon and the vehicle had been assigned, Brigadier Ranjith Rajapathirana, Judge Advocate General of the Army, said that such action would be meted out only upon the findings of the Military Police investigations in the future in accordance with Army judicial procedures.Brigadier Ranjith Rajapathirana, Judge Advocate General of the Army and Colonel Edward Jayasinghe, Director Legal Services were also present at the Media briefing. read more

Mens soccer OSU hopes to find a winning path versus Oakland

Senior forward Danny Jensen advances the ball down the field against a UC Santa Barbara defender. Credit: Ohio State AthleticsAfter losing its past four games, the Ohio State men’s soccer team returns to Columbus looking to string together some wins at the tail end of its season. The Buckeyes will take on Oakland University at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium this Tuesday, the start of a two-game stretch at home. OSU fell victim to undefeated No. 1 Maryland on Friday night. Despite losing 2-0, coach John Bluem was impressed with how his team performed.  “That’s a real tough environment to play in. To be down early and not give up and battle like they did for the remaining 70 minutes was a great effort,” Bluem said. “In the second half we outshot them and out corner-kicked them. We made some adjustments and I think we played really well overall. I was really proud of our guys.”The Buckeyes have hit a bit of a drought in the scoring department — not scoring any goals in their last two contests. As a result, the game plan is going to have to change through the team’s remaining six games. “We are definitely going to have to be more aggressive moving forward,” said senior midfielder Henry Chancy. “The time for sitting back is no more. We have to go after every team and get them on their heels. We have nothing to lose now.”Oakland comes in struggling, much like the Buckeyes. At 4-6 on the season, the Golden Grizzlies had won three straight before losing their past two contests. Oakland’s leading scorer is redshirt senior Chase Jabbori, who has netted three goals on only 10 shots through the team’s first 10 games. Jabbori is tied in points with redshirt freshman Nebojsa Popovic and junior Austin Ricci, each with two goals and two assists apiece. The Golden Bears have been outscored 13-10 on the season, splitting time between two of their goalkeepers. Redshirt sophomore Zach Walker has gotten the bulk of the work, starting in 10 games while making 25 saves. For the Buckeyes, it was announced Friday that Tyler Kidwell and Danny Jensen were named candidates for the 2016 Senior CLASS Award. The award is given to a Division I senior that has notable achievements in four different areas: community, classroom, character and competition. “They are both really good leaders, strong students and great players,” Bluem said. “It says a lot for our university that we are producing these kinds of student athletes. I am happy for the two of them and proud of both of them. “The OSU men’s soccer program has had the past two award winners, with Alex Ivanov and Zach Mason taking home the award in 2014 and 2015, respectively. While excelling off the field, if the Buckeyes want to excel on the field, they know they must build off their performance against Maryland. “If we keep fighting like that and play the way we did, we can get on a hot streak and show that even though we don’t have everyone healthy right now, it’s still possible for us to make a good run,” said junior defender Hunter Robertson. “This next game is crucial for us.”Players and coaches alike understand that with just six games remaining on the schedule, they must put the past behind them and focus on the task at hand, even in games that are out of conference. “We can’t have a letdown because it’s a nonconference game,” Bluem said. “We have to play with intensity right from the start. We are going to treat this game as if it’s a conference opponent out there. We are going to keep doing what we do well and hopefully we catch some breaks and get some wins.” read more

UK weather Heavy rain in Northern England sparks flash flood chaos

first_imgFlooding in Dewsbury, West YorkshireCredit:Charlotte Graham/Guzelian Northern England has experienced heavy downpours and flash flooding, leaving commuters facing road closures and delays.West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said it received 23 flood-related calls between 9am and 11am on Wednesday, of which seven were attended by crews.The callouts, mainly around Leeds, included three people stuck in vehicles, and one lightning strike damaging a property in Wetherby. A road leading to Scarborough seafront is floodedCredit:TONY BARTHOLOMEW Road leading to Scarborough seafront which flooded  Flooding at Parker road, Thornhill Lees, Dewsbury  First Bus services in York suffered “severe congestion” after one central A-road was closed due to flooding in the Fishergate area, causing diversions and compounding delays due to extra traffic associated with events at York Racecourse.A First Bus spokeswoman said: “Most of our services are delayed due to flooding and race day traffic. We would urge customers to keep checking our website and Twitter feed for the latest updates.” North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service also warned the public of the dangers of driving through standing water, and asked people to take care following reports of flooding in Scarborough.The Met Office said some areas had had as much as 40mm of rain on Wednesday morning, but the worst had passed. Mr Claydon said the worst of the downpours were moving east, creating drier conditions for the coming days.He said: “The flooding would most likely have been due to the intensity of the showers, but the main intensity started coming through around 9 o’clock this morning and is moving east fairly quickly, so it will clear out to the east in the afternoon.”center_img Choppy water in Scarborough on Wednesday afternoon Met Office spokeswoman Nicky Maxey said that early, unverified figures indicated the UK had already had around 96 per cent of the expected rainfall for August, with the potential for more to come.However, she said the weather systems were generally in keeping with the types of rainfall the UK experiences in summer months.”It’s not particularly unusual to see these heavy bursts.”The ones which went through Leeds and Northern Ireland overnight were particularly heavy, but it’s common for our summer rainfall to fall in a few heavy bursts rather than frontal rain that can last for a few days in the winter.” Spokesman Oli Claydon said the heavy, thundery downpours were the result of weather systems related to those affecting Northern Ireland on Tuesday, where emergency services responded to 60 flooding instances between 7pm and 11pm.

Jury BG man guilty of attempted murder in hammer attack

first_imgA Clark County jury found a Battle Ground man guilty of bashing his then-girlfriend and best friend in the heads with a hammer when he found them in bed together.The jury found Marcus Morrison, 31, guilty of two counts of first-degree attempted murder with egregious lack of remorse. The jury found Morrison not guilty of second-degree attempted murder charges. The finding of egregious lack of remorse allows Superior Court Judge Robert Lewis to sentence Morrison to time in excess of the state’s standard sentencing range.Jurors began deliberations at about 10:30 a.m. Thursday and continued before their verdict was announced about 11 a.m. Friday.“Justice prevailed,” said victim Rena Donnelly, Morrison’s ex-girlfriend. “I was nervous and scared. They were out for a long time.”Morrison’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.During the weeklong trial, prosecutors argued that Morrison intended to kill his best friend, Aaron Warner, and then-girlfriend, Donnelly, while they were sleeping at Warner’s house in Vancouver on Nov. 23.“If you hit someone with multiple blows to the head with a hammer, the intent is murder,” Deputy Prosecutor Luka Vitasovic said.Morrison’s defense attorney, Jeff Sowder, argued that Morrison acted in the heat of passion after seeing “his girl” in bed with his best friend.“If he intended to kill, why didn’t he keep pounding?” Sowder asked. The elements of attempted murder have not been proven, the defense attorney said.last_img read more

Taunton Ends CEO Search Shifts Dan McCarthy From Interim to Permanent Role

first_img “I didn’t advance myself as a candidate at the outset because that would not have been practical given my role as a consultant,” McCarthy tells Folio:. An immediate priority, he says, will be a focus on generating more business. “The emphasis is sustaining the commitment to quality content and expanding our engagement with our core customers. In the short term, this means bolstering our focus on sales and marketing, developing new products and services that will be useful and compelling to our customers and extending our marketing reach across our digital platforms.” See Also: Taunton President Steps Down, Industry Veteran Dan McCarthy Takes Over as Interim CEO In an internal memo sent to employees yesterday, Taunton named Dan McCarthy as the company’s new CEO. McCarthy, who had been working with Taunton since mid-2014 in an advisory role, took over on a temporary basis in February when Taunton president Tim Rahr announced he was stepping down. The Cheyenne Group was secured to manage the search, which circled back to McCarthy, who did not place himself in the initial search pool. Across all of its channels, McCarthy says the company attracts more than 8 million people each month. Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the the CEO search conducted by the Cheyenne Group did not turn up a candidate before selecting McCarthy for the role. McCarthy has leadership experience in enthusiast markets himself. He previously served as CEO of Primedia Enthusiast Group, later becoming CEO of Network Communications, Inc. McCarthy will report to the Taunton Inc. board of directors, where he’ll also have a seat. Newtown, Conn.-based Taunton, an independent, family-owned company, serves enthusiasts and professionals alike in several markets: woodworking, home building, cooking, gardening and crafts. But in the last few months, McCarthy says his time as an interim CEO has been productive. “There are great people here who are passionate about making the company better,” he says. “The Board approached me recently about continuing in the role permanently and I found it an exciting opportunity.”last_img read more

Roblox 101 What is Roblox and Who Plays It

first_imgStay on target Roblox 101: How To Make Actual Money In The GameRoblox 101: How To Make Your First Game Roblox has reached a popularity level with the young gamer demographic that few developers could ever dream of achieving with their releases. But at the same time, a shocking number of people have never heard of it. As it turns out, games starring player-customized faux-Lego figures just aren’t very popular among adults, but they’ve taken the world by storm for those under the age of 14.If you’re unfamiliar, Roblox is a game on PC, mobile devices, and Xbox One that lets users create their own avatar and play any number of thousands of games that are all created by other players. In addition to playing games online with friends, anyone can also start building their own world and release their very own Roblox game.What makes Roblox so genius from a pure design perspective is how insulated everything is within its own ecosystem. Users don’t even need to download anything as the entire platform and all of its games can be launched directly in your web browser. Once you customize your avatar you can jump into a knock off Pokemon game, go shoot some zombies with friends, or live a pretend life in a fictional Roblox city. There are racing games, shooting games, adventure games, roleplaying games, platforming games, and anything else you could think of. All a kid has to do is type in what they want or click on what looks most appealing and they’re good to go.AdChoices广告The vast majority of games on Roblox are all free-to-play with advertising and microtransactions, similar to games found on the iOS App Store or Google Play. Players can even subscribe to the Roblox Builders club to earn daily credits and other special rewards. Everything in the business model from the games users play and worlds they build to the subscriptions and advertising all feed back into the same gameplay loop of getting eyeballs on the website. It’s a deliciously powerful machine that, according to website-ranking portal Alexa, has been so successful it’s actually earned the 107th most popular spot in the entire United States.As remarkable as that all sounds it’s anything by an overnight sensation. Roblox, as a platform, has existed for well over a decade and easily surpasses 30 million active users per month with a large fraction of that base also contributing to its growing catalog of content.That user-generated content idea is often a throwaway feature in a video game. Developers will craft a long, detailed experience with dozens of hours of content and then throw in some modding tools or level creation options to give the illusion of replayability, but in reality you never use them. That’s a big reason why it’s so hard for developers to succeed with games that are seemingly founded upon the idea of world building and creation.Minecraft is the best example out there. Chances are that if you’re nerdy enough to visit a website called, then you’ve heard of Minecraft. But what if I told you that Minecraft wasn’t the first game geared towards players that like to make stuff? In fact, Minecraft didn’t first hit its developmental testing phase until 2009, whereas Roblox was in beta testing as early as 2005. Today that doesn’t really matter as both games are immensely successful, but it’s important to keep in mind that just because a game lets you build things doesn’t necessarily mean it copied Minecraft.When considering Roblox, it’s important to keep in mind that it isn’t just placing blocks in a virtual world like in Minecraft. In the case of Roblox, you’re opening up a program called “Roblox Studio” and actually building models of objects and characters, you’re creating NPCs and giving them dialog, or even writing some code to make things act a certain way. You could liken Minecraft to a restaurant with a really thorough menu that lets you pick and choose your combo platter, but Roblox is more like the world’s largest buffet, featuring every type of food, but then the kitchen is also open to just make something from scratch instead if you want.Even though Roblox is designed for kids very carefully and directly that doesn’t mean parents should just let their children play it without any regard for privacy and safety. With the way the internet works if you let loose your underaged child onto a platform that’s powered by and reflective of its community, a community that exists and identifies with the internet as a whole, it’s a risky proposition. Internet Gutter meme culture is rarely PC or kid-appropriate. Generally speaking, not many parents really have a good idea of what their kids do on the internet these days. Sure, they might know the name of the popular YouTubers they watch the most or have general familiarity with the fact that their teenage son plays World of Warcraft, but the majority of parents aren’t overly engaged with their kids’ online identity. That should absolutely change and Roblox is definitely a risky playground that should be monitored more.With so many possibilities of what to do, games to play, and worlds to build, it’s no wonder that kids these days can’t get enough of Roblox.—David Jagneaux is a tech and gaming journalist with bylines on several prominent media publications such as IGN, Polygon, Playboy, UploadVR, Motherboard, Gamecrate, VICE, GamesMaster Magazine, and many others. He is also the author of The Ultimate Roblox Book, an upcoming book for anyone interested in learning more about Roblox and how to get started with building their own worlds. It’s being published by Adams Media and is due to release in January of 2018. You can pre-order your copy on Amazon right here.last_img read more

Possible second Viking site discovered in North America

first_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. © 2016 A team of archeologists has found what may be the remains of a previously unknown Viking settlement on a south west shore of the Island of Newfoundland. If the remains can be confirmed, the site would make it just the second ever discovered that has given proof of Vikings inhabiting parts of North America. The team has been videotaping their work and a documentary of their efforts will be presented this month on PBS. Explore further The “Lofotr” viking ship and the smaller “femkeiping”. Both recosntructions based on excavations from the Gokstad find. Credit: Geir Are Johansen/Wikipediacenter_img Leading the research is archeologist and National Geographic fellow, Sarah Parcak, who has been described as a “space archaeologist” because of her groundbreaking use of satellite technology to uncover Egyptian ruins. In this latest effort, she and her team have altered their methods to uncover what appears to be evidence of Viking iron smelting.To find hidden artifacts, especially those that have been buried by some amount of dirt, using a satellite, the researchers used computer tools to help them scan images, looking for human-like angles or long straight, unnatural lines. In the case of the newly discovered Newfoundland site, called Point Rosee, the team looked for changes in the richness of the grasses that grow near the sea—those that grow over stone, or other material are less robust, and can be made out from a distant satellite. The team also used magnetometer surveys to help isolate images below the ground once they were on site. That led to an initial excavation which revealed an iron-working hearth (with 28 pounds of slag in it) and what appeared to be the remains of turf walls. Radiocarbon testing has dated the site to between 800 and 1300 AD, which would coincide with the time of the Vikings.Prior to this possible discovery, the only site ever officially designated as evidence of Norse activity in the New World was L’Anse aux Meadows, hundreds of miles north, on the tip of the same island. Archeologists do not have much to go on when attempting to prove that a settlement was made by Norsemen, rather than Basque fisherman or Native Americans—the one true hallmark of Norse travelers was the use of iron nails to build their boats, thus the discovery of an iron-smelting oven would be strong evidence of Viking activity.If additional excavation and testing indicate that the site was indeed made by Vikings, it will likely lead to changes being made to the history books—it would mean they found and settled North America five centuries before Christopher Columbus arrived.
