California amusement park ride The Log malfunctions, injuries family

first_imgABC News(LOS ANGELES) — A woman was critically injured and her husband and child were also hurt when a water log ride at a California amusement park malfunctioned and flipped over, throwing them from their seats, officials said.The incident occurred at Castle Park in Riverside on the Log Ride, which, according to the park’s website, features a 48-foot drop.Riverside Fire Department officials said they were called to the park at 4:37 p.m. and said three members of one family were tossed into the water after something went haywire with the log they were riding in and overturned.“One of the injuries we categorized as critical. With the two others being minor. All were transported to a hospital,” a fire official at the scene told ABC Los Angeles station KABC-TV.Witnesses said a 10-year-old boy injured in the incident appeared to suffer a cut to his ear and head injuries, while his father suffered scrapes to his arm and back.The names of the injured family members were not released.Video of the incident showed the injured boy and his father in the water after the log they were in flipped over.Fire department officials said a mechanical problem with a ride’s water pump apparently caused the accident.An investigation is underway by the California Department of Health and Safety to determine the exact cause of the malfunction.The Log Ride was immediately shut down pending the outcome of the probe, officials said.A spokeswoman for the Castle Park told KABC that the ride had been inspected earlier Saturday and nothing was found wrong.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgSOCCER: Finn Harps welcome Cobh Ramblers to Finn Park tonight knowing a victory will put them back on top of the First Division. Wexford Youths were scheduled to play UCD on Sunday – but that game has now been postponed due to the students Europa League commitments.So if Harps can defeat Cobh tonight it will them send them one point clear at the top of the table for at least a week. Harps are looking to record three successive victories on the bounce if they can overcome Stephen Henderson’s plucky Cobh Ramblers outfit.Harps had lost three games on the bounce – but have responded superbly by recording consecutive wins over Cabinteely and Waterford.Harps will be without Keith Cowan who is heading to Italy to get married, while Tommy McMonagle is a doubt after he limped off with an ankle complaint in last weekend’s victory over Waterford.Apart from that Ollie Horgan should have a fully fit squad to choose from as Harps look to return to the top of the table. Kick-off at Finn Park is at 8pm and a big crowd is expected to turn up to hopefully see Harps go back to the top of the table.We’ll have a full-match report on all the action at Finn Park later this evening. FINN HARPS HOST COBH TONIGHT KNOWING A WIN WILL PUT THEM BACK ON TOP was last modified: July 17th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Cobh Ramblersfinn harpsnewssoccerSportlast_img read more

Show your support for João Silva

first_imgSupporters can visit the new websiteto help injured photographer João Silva. MEDIA CONTACTS • Greg Marinovich+27 83 258 8908 RELATED ARTICLES • The everyday beauty of Soweto • Opening up SA’s heritage • South Africans leading the world• Tutu speaks out for press freedom• Bang Bang Club lives on in filmJanine ErasmusSouth African photojournalist João Silva stepped on a landmine in southern Afghanistan in October 2010 and lost both his legs below the knees. Silva was travelling with the Fourth Infantry Division of the US Army at the time, on assignment for the New York Times.Now, a new website allows supporters to help raise money for the father of two and his family through either a donation or purchase of a print.Photojournalist, author and film editor Greg Marinovich, a former colleague and close friend of the injured Silva, and his wife Leonie have created the website to support Silva through his recovery and convalescence, which could take as long as two years, according to Marinovich.Prints are available in two categories. The first is From the Edge of History, which documents Silva’s recent assignments in Iraq, Malawi, Lebanon and Afghanistan for the New York Times, and includes some historic photos from South African townships in the 1990s.Vintage Work Prints feature South African scenes captured between 1993 and 1996. Silva printed the images by hand and has signed, dated and captioned each one. There are only 181 prints in the set, and only one of each. A number have already been snapped up.Fans of Silva’s work can also make an outright donation, leave a message of support, or view his images by visiting his official website.Selfless and courageousHailed by his colleagues as selfless, committed and courageous, Silva continued taking photos even as the medics worked to save his limbs, according to New York Times executive editor Bill Keller. A team of minesweepers and dogs had already surveyed the scene and pronounced it clean, but the mine was small enough to escape detection.Keller added that he’s certain that not even serious injury will keep Silva away from his work, and that the photographer would return to duty as soon as he is able.“We have little doubt he will continue photographing, but he will certainly not be able to go to war zones,” said Marinovich in an entry on the New York Times blog.Silva has worked across the African continent, in the Middle East, Russia, the Balkans and Central Asia. His often harrowing images have earned worldwide acclaim and many awards, including the prestigious World Press Photo in 2006.He is known for his work as a member of the Bang Bang Club, a group of four photographers who covered unrest in South African townships during the late 1980s through to the mid-1990s. The other regular members were Greg Marinovich, the late Kevin Carter, and the late Ken Oosterbroek. Carter won the Pulitzer Prize for his now-famous image of an emaciated Sudanese toddler stalked by a vulture.Silva is still in intensive care at the Walter Reed Army Medical Centre in Washington DC.last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, March 12, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest High pressure moves over the state today and will yield good sunshine all day long!  Temperatures today will be mostly near normal, and will even climb a bit late in the day as south winds start to really kick in.Tomorrow clouds will be on the increase, and we wont rule out a few scattered showers developing in the NW part of the state. The southern half of the state may be able to stay partly sunny through the entire day, but even with clouds around most of Ohio does not see precipitation through the day tomorrow. Overnight tomorrow night rain potential picks up, and we see a fairly wet 24-30 hour period from there through Friday morning  Rain will be moderate to heavy in spots and we also will not rule out a few afternoon and night time thunderstorms Thursday night. Rain totals for the 2 day period will be from .4”-1.4” with coverage at 90% of the state. See the map at right. Thunderstorms should be limited mostly to the southern half of the state, but we won’t completely rule out a little action farther north. Mild temps will be seen tomorrow as we move into the 50s and 60s, and on Thursday, we would not be surprised at a move to highs near 70! All of that temperature move comes on strong south flow.Friday early morning we should be done with precipitation, and clouds will give way to some sun. Temps are likely to start to moving back just a bit. WE still think we will see temps in the 50s and 60s, before we revert back to normal over the weekend. Saturday can feature a few more clouds and perhaps a few spits and sprinkles or even flurries in the morning, but that will be very limited, and moisture only ends up with around 25% coverage.Beautiful, dry, sunny weather arrives on Sunday with high pressure dominating. The dry pattern holds all the way through next week into the start of the 11-16 day period next Friday. Temperatures will be near normal through the period. Unfortunately, we can’t keep that pattern going for the balance of the extended window.Scattered showers are back starting Saturday the 23rd, a day that starts with sun, but sees clouds quickly move int .The showers for Saturday will be mostly from I-70 north by sunset, and can bring up to .3″. On Sunday , we see showers from US 30 north can bring up to another .3″, and then morning showers on Monday the 21st bring up to another .3″ from US 30 north. This time, though, by late in the day, we see that rain spreading south. Rain continues Monday night, Tuesday and Wednesday, the 25th through 27th  statewide. Combined rain totals for the entire 5 day period will be 1 to 3 inches from US 30 north, and 1-2 inches from US 30 south. Rain coverage will be 100%.last_img read more

Prime Minister says Future of Petrojam is Secure

first_imgStory Highlights The Prime Minister was making his contribution to the 2019/20 Budget Debate in the House of Representatives on March 19. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says the future of Petrojam is secure, as governance systems have been established at the entity that must be followed. He said the Government has had to make several decisions about the oil refinery, but the most “significant” one was the buy-back of the shares held by Venezuela, which has cleared the way for Jamaica to make “strategic decisions about its energy security without encumbrances”. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says the future of Petrojam is secure, as governance systems have been established at the entity that must be followed.He said the Government has had to make several decisions about the oil refinery, but the most “significant” one was the buy-back of the shares held by Venezuela, which has cleared the way for Jamaica to make “strategic decisions about its energy security without encumbrances”.The Prime Minister was making his contribution to the 2019/20 Budget Debate in the House of Representatives on March 19.“Petrojam has a secure future in whatever form we may choose to continue the business. Without that action, credible investment in the refinery would have been limited if not impossible to obtain. Without this action, it was clear that it would have become increasingly difficult to do business with suppliers and bankers, once sanctions remained in place,” he told the House.Mr. Holness said the Petrojam Review Commission, which he appointed last October, will submit its report in June, and notwithstanding its finding, he has directed the Board and management of the entity to ensure that it continues to pursue opportunities and take decisions that will preserve and enhance the existing value of the business, that going forward, “it will have significant commercial value”.He said Petrojam has been mandated to pursue markets in CARICOM to sell heavy fuel oil (HFO) that will not be used by the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS), when that company transitions to liquefied natural gas (LNG), and to supply the bunkering market.Meanwhile, the Prime Minister said that under new governance rules, Board chairmen will have to notify and get the approval of Ministers before they travel; Board members will have to disclose residency to Ministers and the Cabinet; a system now exists for detailed procedures on how public bodies can make donations, which include limits to be set by the Ministry of Finance and the Public Service.He outlined that there are now “tighter procedures” around the use of retainer contracts, which require that all such contracts that are to be sole source must get approval of the Cabinet, and that connected party interests with the Board or management must be declared to the Cabinet and in annual reports.On the issue of non-disclosure agreements and confidentiality clauses in human resource (HR) settlements in public bodies, they cannot be concealed from the Parliament, and the monetary value cannot be subjected to confidentiality, the Prime Minister said.last_img read more
