Wishing for a wild raccoon

first_img That has never been more evident to me than on Christmas night when my nine-year-old grandson was walking into doors and stumbling up steps with only the tuff of blond hair visible as he was connected to an iPod and oblivious to the merriment of Christmas all around him.What stark contrast that was to just a few days before when we were in the mountains and he was hiking rocky trails, fishing his granma out of an icy mountain stream, plucking pine cones from high in a tree and cupping his hands over his mouth giving “crow” calls that bounced off the mountains right back to him. Like a wild raccoon.Makes me wonder if we are giving our children too much and leaving them with too little. Wishing for a wild raccoon Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Some years back, Sis, Tater Bug and I were on our way to Colorado. The “old” among us thought it would be fun to have a picnic in the shadows of the Gateway Arch. But, no, Tater Bug didn’t want to stop.“But you want to see the Gateway Arch,” we said in an effort to entice him.“I’ve already seen it.”“No, you haven’t.” Email the author Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Acid Reflux (Watch Now)Healthy LifestyleIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

On TV.”And, children have “seen” it all. But too often they have not experienced “it” with wide-eyed wonder. Like a wild raccoon.Maybe I was “deprived” as a child. We only took two family vacations. One to Louisiana to visit an air corps buddy of Daddy’s and another destined for Dayton Beach. We never made it to Daytona. After we toured the Old Jail at St. Petersburg, Daddy had seen enough of Florida. He turned the car around and took us back to Ida Cason Calloway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Ga.But, when I did get a chance to “experience” the world outside of home, it was with wide-eyed wonder.When I was 11 years old, Daddy said I could go off to Camp Grandview north of Montgomery. Mama said I was too young to go that far from home. But what Daddy said, went. I went.A month before my date of departure, I got a brochure in the mail detailing everything I was to bring – towels, wash cloths, toothpaste, toothbrush, insect repellent – things like that. I was so excited. I read and reread that brochure so many times that the folds were as sharp as a razor blade.I can still remember the thrill of standing at the top of the 100 steps to the swimming pool and knowing that I was finally there in a big, new world.And, when I saw the Gulf of Mexico for the first time, it actually took my breath away.And, years later, when I peeped out of a sleeping bag at sunrise to see the Teton Mountains for the first time, it was such an awesome sight that I couldn’t keep my eyes from filling with tears.Over the years, there have been many wild raccoon experiences in my life – things as simple as lying in the pasture at night looking at the stars or hearing Aunt Beatie singing as she came around the corner of the house or when Mama plugged in the lights on the Christmas tree for the first time each year. So many wonderful wild raccoon experiences and I cherish each and every one of them.Now, the words “New Year’s resolutions” are not part of my vocabulary. I’m toting around about 40 extra pounds as testimony to that. So I don’t make resolutions. But if I could have any wish for the New Year 2009, it would be that each of us could experience life as a wild raccoon.What an awesome year that would be.

European Commission to fast-track Capital Markets Union reform

first_imgSlippage of both dates could be possible, the Commission official admitted. However, the projected speed makes the new Commission’s motives to succeed with CMU reform clear, with lawmakers conscious of the potential of the initiative to help solve the EU’s economic problems by facilitating cross-border investments.It was only on 1 November that Jonathan Hill, the new commissioner for financial stability, financial services and capital markets union, was instructed by Jean-Claude Juncker, Commission president, to “develop and integrate capital markets as a source of financing for innovative projects and long-term investment”.Hill has previously identified the underdeveloped European private pensions market as a hurdle to creating the CMU.External advisers to the team working on the CMU have recommended that the Commission define policies well ahead of future action. Diego Valiante, head of research at the Brussels-based European Capital Market Institute, said objectives should be clearly expressed but not “blurred”.Somewhat guarded in his enthusiasm is Syed Kamall, leader of the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) Group.The MEP welcomed any Commission proposal that would lead to “well functioning” capital markets in the EU.However, he warned that if the plans turned out to be more “institutional”, and aimed at building yet another ‘regulatory union’, then “there will be resistance”.Fabian Zuleeg, chief executive at the European Policy Centre, a Brussels think tank, was even more pessimistic in the view that, on matters of economic reform, progress is hindered simply because the EU member states “are not ready for it”.For more on the role of sustainability and green investment in the CMU, see the current issue of IPE The European Commission is fast-tracking its programme to reform the EU’s Capital Markets Union (CMU) by planning to publish a ‘green’ paper, or consultation document, on the subject before the end of January 2015.A Commission official, who confirmed the deadline, added that a large team had already been set up and was working on the project.Previously, leaked information from a Commission source put the target date for the policy paper as before Christmas this year. In fact, the Commission plans to arrive at a ‘white’ policy paper before the summer of 2015, as its official target. last_img read more

Magath hails Fulham feelgood factor

first_img Having struggled to keep their heads above water all season, a 2-1 victory at Aston Villa last weekend moved the Whites up to 18th in the table and five points behind Saturday’s visitors. It was only Magath’s second league win since he became Fulham’s third manager of the season following the 1-0 success over Newcastle on March 15 and the former Bayern Munich boss wants to see that result matched against the Canaries, who will be under the stewardship of Neil Adams for the first time. Fulham manager Felix Magath is hoping the extra spring in the step of his players during training can translate into a second straight Barclays Premier League win at home to Norwich. “It helps us a lot – this feeling and the atmosphere,” he said. “You feel it this week, the players are free, laughing and so I think it was an important win to go on in fighting against relegation. We need another win in the next game and we will try against Norwich. “They are not afraid to make mistakes and that is how we have to play and why I’m convinced we will stay in the league. The whole club now believes after the win at Aston Villa.” For Adams, the game at Craven Cottage will be seen as a crucial fixture if he is to keep the Canaries afloat with their last four games coming against Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal. Fulham’s run-in is less daunting but Magath feels that every game between now and the end of the season is pivotal to his side’s survival bid while suggesting Norwich may have left it too late to replace Chris Hughton in their own fight against the drop. “For us it doesn’t matter who is the opponent because we have only important games now,” he said. “Norwich have a very bad schedule, they have very, very difficult games ahead. They have changed their manager now and this will give them new energy so we will have to be careful. “You can never say what has happened at another club but they took a manager who knows everything about the club – it is a chance to change something and I think it was a good decision. Maybe it was just a little bit too late.” Former Ipswich striker Darren Bent, currently on loan at Fulham from Villa, will be hoping to start against Norwich having scored in the FA Cup third-round replay victory against the Norfolk club in January. The England international has not featured on a regular basis under Magath as the German looks to give every player in his squad an opportunity to impress. He said: “If I come here as a new manager I have to take care of all the players, not only of Darren Bent. “I have to give everyone a chance to show the fans, the club and me how good he is and I think everybody has had their chance. He will get another chance. Everybody wants to play, if I ask the players everyone tells me they want to play. “I’m only regarding the training sessions and I have to choose after training who was good and who has convinced me and then I decide who is playing. He is fit this weekend.” Bent will battle it out with Villa Park match-winner Hugo Rodallega and youngster Cauley Woodrow to lead the line on Saturday, with club-record signing Kostas Mitroglou once again ruled out with injury. The Greece international has made only two appearances since moving to Craven Cottage from Olympiacos in January but Magath did confirm he hopes to have the 26-year-old available for the short trip to Tottenham in a fortnight.

Woman Purposely Coughs on Produce at PA Supermarket, Causes $35,000 Loss

first_imgA grocery store in Pennsylvania was forced this week to throw away about $35,000 worth of food, after a woman intentionally coughed on its fresh produce, bakery products, and meat case.Joe Fasula, a co-owner of Gerrity’s Supermarket, says the incident happened Wednesday afternoon at a store in Hanover Township.According to Fasula, the woman is known by police and likely committed the act as a “very twisted prank.”He adds, “Working closely with the Hanover Township health inspector, we identified every area that she was in, we disposed of the product and thoroughly cleaned and disinfected everything.”Fasula says the police were called immediately, and the case has been escalated to the area’s district attorney’s office.Courtesy: Gerrity’s Supermarket/Facebook“They have assured me that they will be aggressively pursuing numerous charges,” he explains. “In addition, while we do not believe the woman is truly infected, they will make every effort to see that she is tested.”The grocery chain is checking whether its insurance company will cover the loss.The woman’s actions come at a time when Americans are being cautious to not contact or spread COVID-19, the illness which is caused by the coronavirus, and are practicing social distancing.“While it is always a shame when food is wasted, in these times when so many people are worried about the security of our food supply, it is even more disturbing,” adds Fasula.last_img read more

Syracuse rotation keeps players fresh despite quick turnarounds

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Fitting a 17-game regular season into a span of just more than two months gives Syracuse little time to revel in its record-breaking season. Each time the Orange’s next match rolls around, it’s still recovering from its last.Weekends on the road and weekday games against central New York opponents — against Cornell, Colgate and Albany and at Binghamton — have become the norm.On Friday at 7 p.m. at SU Soccer Stadium, No. 4 Syracuse (10-1, 3-1 Atlantic Coast) will play its third game in seven days with a match against Wake Forest (6-5, 2-2). Despite the quick turnarounds, the team has gotten off to its best start in program history, and currently holds its highest-ever national ranking.The Orange takes on the Demon Deacons just three days after Tuesday’s 2-1 comeback victory over Albany.“Winning (against Albany) will make it better,” said head coach Ian McIntyre. “It makes you feel a little bit lighter on your feet. But it’s about management of the bodies.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThough McIntyre’s rotations have helped the players’ freshness and health, SU’s schedule may slowly be taking a toll on its players.This past weekend, the Orange spent 20 hours on a chartered bus to and from Blacksburg, Virginia, after leaving a day early to save the players’ legs, McIntyre said. The team rode through the night — starting at 10:30 p.m. — back to Syracuse after its 1-0 victory over Virginia Tech.“If you need anything in the next 10 hours, give me a call,” McIntyre said jokingly that night as the team boarded the bus.Syracuse beat the Hokies, but it took a double-overtime effort and a goal in the 107th minute from Emil Ekblom to seal the victory. McIntyre said his team’s performance that night was “gutsy,” a word he also used to describe the team’s win over then-No. 2 Virginia on Sept. 27.After a three-day layoff, Syracuse came out flat to start both halves against Albany. Early in the first half, McIntyre yelled from the sideline for midfielder Juuso Pasanen to “please win” a header, for midfielders Nick Perea and Julian Buescher to “get on the ball” and for the entire team to get tighter and “go get it.”“It’s tough to come from an ACC game and then turn up for a Tuesday night game,” Pasanen said after the match.But McIntyre’s use of player rotations and substitutions has helped produce four 1-0 victories over Binghamton, Clemson, St. John’s and Rutgers.Midway through the first half, the coach usually replaces starters Chris Nanco and Buescher with Alex Halis and Stefanos Stamoulacatos. Whenever Korab Syla enters, it’s usually for Oyvind Alseth, and Noah Rhynhart often replaces Ekblom. Louis Cross has started most weekday games and Tyler Hilliard has started most weekend games.On Tuesday, Syracuse used six subs in the second half alone, something McIntyre said the team needed to “freshen things up.”“We’ve been putting a lot of minutes on (Hilliard),” McIntyre said after the Albany game, in which Hilliard replaced Cross in the 60th minute. “T’s been awesome, very good, and I think Louie’s had a good season. So ultimately to allow (Cross) to have minutes gave (Hilliard) a little bit of a rest tonight.”Though Cross started 13 of the 17 games he played for Akron last season, the defender said he never started more than three or four games in a row.Said Cross: “I’m quite used to resting one game and playing the next. It keeps me on my toes.” Comments Published on October 9, 2014 at 12:25 am Contact Josh: [email protected]last_img read more

Adoree’ Jackson declares for NFL Draft

first_imgOn the final day to declare for the NFL Draft, junior cornerback Adoree’ Jackson announced that he will forego his senior season to enter the professional league.Known for his explosive performances on both sides of the ball, Jackson led the team in punt returns, kick returns and interceptions in his final season. He totalled over 1,000 yards off of returns alone, dazzling fans and teammates alike with his leaping dashes from one end zone to the other. His impact off the field was equally renowned. Whether it was turning backflips during practice or wearing the red “C” of a captain into every game, Jackson’s presence was felt throughout the team.Jackson’s decision was closely watched following the Rose Bowl, as he posted cryptically on social media about his chances to return to win the Heisman or the National Championship. The announcement comes after junior wide receiver JuJu Smith Schuster decided to enter the draft as well.It also comes on the heels of an ankle injury in the third quarter of the Rose Bowl that kept Jackson off the field for the remainder of the game. Though the injury did not keep the Trojans from their last-minute defeat over Penn State, it weighed into how Jackson viewed the decision to stay or go.“After the Rose Bowl, I had many thoughts running through my head,” Jackson said. “What was on my mind is that nothing is guaranteed in life and to take advantage of every opportunity that is put in front of you.”At USC, Jackson also excelled as a track athlete, winning the Pac-12 Championship in long jump and anchoring the 4 x 100 meter team to fourth place in the NCAA Championship meet. That team’s final time of 38.75 remains the second-fastest in school history. Despite his revered status as a Trojan, Jackson’s draft stock is widely debated. A mock draft by Walter Football puts him at first overall, while Bleacher Report drops him out of the first round at 60th overall. The ultimate decision won’t be made until April 28th.The possibility that Jackson would leave a year early was well-known throughout the Trojan fanbase, and his final game in the Coliseum was filled with rumbling chants of “One more year.” Although he couldn’t give the fans what they wanted, Jackson left them with the second-best thing — a Rose Bowl victory and a legacy that will be impossible to forget anytime soon.“It’s been an incredible three years playing for one of the greatest traditions in college football,” Jackson said. “I made the best decision of my life when I chose to come to USC, and finishing it off with a Rose Bowl win is one of the best ways I could ever hoped for it to end. Being a Trojan was the best time of my life and I’ll never ever forget my time here at USC.”last_img read more
