Men’s Basketball returns to Heritage City as WKMBL tips off season at LVR Hangar

first_imgBasketball kicked off a little earlier than in past years as Men’s League hoops returned to the Heritage City for the first time in decades with the arrival of the West Kootenay Men’s Basketball League.Three Nelson teams — Empire Coffee, Kootenay Lake Electrical and Nelson Toyota — joined teams in Castlegar, Rossland, Trail and Northport, Wash., to form the eight-team league.“The Men’s League started because alumni wanted something more than the open gyms and (playing) games against the high school team at LVR,” said organizer Jeremy Phelan.“Something organized and competitive,” Phelan added.“It was easy to convince guys to come out one night a week and play basketball with against their friends.”The last time there was a Men’s League in Nelson was more than 20 years ago when the Nelson Basketball Association was up and running. In its heyday, the NBA had as many as six teams in the league. Phelan said, organizing games in Nelson was easy. It was convincing the well-established Trail Men’s League to form the West Kootenay League.“The Trail Men’s League was established and was able to provide good guidance on what needed to happen in order to organize the four team North Division of the Men’s League,” Phelan explained.The WKMBL consists of two four-team divisions.Three Nelson teams and Selkirk College play in the North Division while Rock Island, Flying Steamshovel, Mota and Northport, Wash., for the South Division.Games are played Mondays at L.V. Rogers Hangar in Nelson, Selkirk College Gymnasium in Castlegar and the former Rossland High School in the Golden City.“The Trail Men’s League organizers were excited to see expansion of their four-team league in order to see some diversity of competition week to week, and were very supportive as we worked together to book facilities, referees, and scorekeepers,” Phelan said.The league kicked off the season Monday in Nelson as Empire Coffee held off a late-charge from Kootenay Lake Electrical to post a 39-35 victory.Joel Devito and Clay Rickaby led the Empire Coffee attack with 11 and 10 points, respectively.In game two, Nelson Toyota looked to be in mid-season form as the club dumped Selkirk College 54-28.The league shifts to Selkirk College and Rossland for games next week before returning back to the Hangar Monday, November 21 with Nelson Toyota meeting Northport, Wash. at 6:30 p.m. and the Flying Steamshovel from Rossland meeting one of the other Nelson teams.last_img read more

Breaking the Addiction to the Social Apps

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now Two weeks ago, I removed all the social apps from my iPhone.This meant deleting my favorite, even if troll-infested, social platform, Twitter. I also removed Facebook, a primary source of negativity and divisiveness for many, especially around politics and cultural issues. Instagram, the perfectly manicured version of life, and also the polar opposite of Facebook in that its content is far more positive. I also deleted LinkedIn and YouTube. I would have deleted Snapchat, but it never made sense to me, even when the social crowd make-believed it was a B2B platform.All of the apps I deleted now reside on my backup iPhone. That phone lives in the very back of the bag I carry, and I have never had cause to use it. As it turns out, I still don’t.The first day without social apps, I found myself picking up the phone without reason. There were no notifications other than text messages from my children and updates about my flights. I must have picked up the phone a half a dozen times, each time being reminded there was nothing there for me.The second day, I picked up the second phone again. Because I had powered down the phone, I had to wait for it to boot up before I could look at the social apps. By the time the apps launched, the moment had passed. I shut the phone down, and was forced to start the process over again when I went to update the social apps later in the day.The third day, I never took the backup iPhone out of bag at all. Nor did I take it out to look at the social apps on the fourth day or the fifth day. On the sixth day, I went to my main phone to look at social sites and remembered I deleted them. When I picked up the backup phone, it was dead. I had thought I turned it off, but I must have turned it on when I placed it in my bag.And by then, I was cured. I no longer reach for my phone, as there is little reason to do so. The social app phone is still in my bag, and it now has no power over me. On Saturday night, I had dinner with one of my friends from law school and his lovely spouse, and the only time I looked at the phone was to update the table on the score of the football game. Other than that, no one touched their phones.It took almost no time at all for the small screen of infinite distractions to lose any power it held over my behavior. As quickly as you can become its slave, in that same time, you can liberate yourself from its grasp.Right now, the phone with the social app is across the room in the back of a bag where it now resides.As a side note, I also deleted my email. But being stuck on a tarmac for 90 minutes, I found it valuable to be able to scan and delete in moments when there is little else to do. The mail application is reinstalled.last_img read more

7 days ago​Solskjaer insists Man Utd right to sell Alexis, Lukaku

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say ​Solskjaer insists Man Utd right to sell Alexis, Lukakuby Ansser Sadiq7 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveOle Gunnar Solskjaer is sticking by the decision to sell Romelu Lukaku and loan out Alexis Sanchez.The Red Devils manager is under increased scrutiny after his side made a poor start to the season.Their biggest problem is a lack of goals, but Solskjaer does not regret letting two experienced attackers leave in the summer transfer window.Speaking about those departures in an interview with Gary Neville, Solskjaer said: “In one-off games, you think we could’ve had a number of extra players with experience. “Alexis and Rom are goalscorers and good players, but at the moment, we made those decisions and they were the right decisions.”That’s the only way you’ve got to look at it. All the players here want to give everything for the club and for the shirt – that’s a big thing.”Every day that they come in training, and every day that they put the shirt on, they’re going to give everything that they have. So you can’t really say, ‘oh I wish I didn’t do that’.”Giving a couple of the lads the chance to show themselves, maybe it was a little bit too early for a few of them. But Mason Greenwood has stepped in and scored a couple in the midweek games, so it’s a great experience for them.”We know we haven’t had the results that we wanted, but I wouldn’t have kept the players we sold. It was the right decision.” last_img read more

Wildlife tally says mosquitoes and blackflies are not among species at risk

first_imgOTTAWA – If you’re planning to enjoy the great outdoors this summer, there are good reasons to stock up on bug spray.The latest edition of a national report on wild species in Canada shows there are 160 different species of blackflies and 80 different species of mosquitoes in the country and the majority of them are flourishing.Wild Species 2015, is the fourth version of a report on the general status of species in Canada which is required every five years under Species at Risk Act.The report collected data from provincial and federal departments which monitor wildlife, assessing nearly 30,000 of the country’s 80,000 known species, ranging from mammals and reptiles to lichens and insects.Dan Kraus, national conservation biologist with the Nature Conservancy of Canada, said the report is a pretty good check list on the status of about one-third of the wild species in Canada.“Which is pretty good although, you know, here we are one of the wealthiest countries in the world and we can’t even assess the status of over half the wild species that occur here,” he said. “It’s good progress but clearly there is a lot of work to be done.”The 2015 report assessed more than twice as many species as the 2011, report, when fewer than 12,000 species were looked at closely. In 2000, when the first version was completed, only 1,670 species were assessed.The 2015 report lists 122 species which are extinct or possibly extinct in Canada including the black footed ferret, Blanchard’s cricket frog and the frosted elfin butterfly.There are 39 insects on this list — three butterflies, two kinds of ants, 22 different beetles, and 10 grasshoppers.To every camper’s frustration, there are no mosquitoes or blackflies among them.There are 456 species in critical danger of going extinct in Canada including the common grey fox, the eastern prickly pear cactus, the spruce-fir moss tarantula and the Oregon spotted frog.There are 88 insects on the critically imperilled list but again no mosquitoes or blackflies. One species of blackfly is on the verge of being labelled critically imperilled, and four are imperilled, but 106 of the 160 species of blackflies are considered to be secure. Another 42 are unranked because there isn’t enough information about them to determined their status.Of the 80 types of mosquitoes, 65 are secure, while 12 are unranked.There are 11 yellowjacket wasps considered at risk, out of more than 100 different species of wasps.Threats to wild life in Canada take many forms including habitat encroachment, pollution and disease.According to the report, the American black bear is secure, but both the polar bear and the grizzly bear are vulnerable.Canada’s fabled beaver is also doing just fine.Of species which were given a ranking and are not extinct, they are assessed on a scale of one to five, with one being critically imperilled and five being secure. Level three is considered vulnerable.Kraus said one of the species that jumped out at him for its changed ranking was the early hairstreak butterfly, which is now considered imperilled. The butterfly feeds on beech trees and those trees are in trouble because of an invasive disease which is leaving the butterfly at risk, he said.-follow @mrabson on Twitter.last_img read more

Austin Mahone Supports Global Youth Traffic Safety Month

first_imgThe Allstate Foundation and singer Austin Mahone are challenging teens to #GetThereSafe during Global Youth Traffic Safety Month this May and throughout the summer, the deadliest season for young drivers on the road.Austin Mahone – Get There SafeStarting today through August 8, teens across the country will have a chance to show where and how they get there safely by entering the #GetThereSafe Challenge. The winning high school will be determined by a random drawing and will receive a meet and greet with Austin in the fall.Car crashes continue to be the No. 1 killer of American teens, causing more teen deaths each year than homicide, suicide, and cancer. The Allstate Foundation’s #GetThereSafe program asks teens not to engage in three risky behaviors that cause teen crash fatalities: speeding, failure to wear a seatbelt and distractions caused by passengers in the car. To demonstrate smart driving and to enter the Challenge, teens must upload photos of themselves or their destination and select a specific driving behavior hashtag – #slowdown, #seatbelt and #nodistractions via the free #GetThereSafe app (available on iTunes and in the Google Play stores).“We should always have each other’s backs, and this program lets us do that when it really counts – behind the wheel,” said Mahone. “The fact that nearly eight teens die each day in car crashes motivated me to get involved so that my friends, family and fans can all get there safe every time they get into a car.”The #GetThereSafe program also encourages teens to flag the issue of teen safe driving in their schools and communities through social media conversations and raising a #GetThereSafe flag. High schools in the states with the highest number of teen crash fatalities – California, Texas and Florida – will highlight the teen driving issue during the month of May at #GetThereSafe flag raising events on school campuses. The flag serves as a symbol of solidarity and a visual reminder for teens to practice smart driving behaviors every time they get in the car as a driver or passenger.“We understand that driving provides teens with a sense of freedom and fun, but there is a serious responsibility that teens take on every time they get behind the wheel,” said Steve Sorenson, Allstate executive vice president of product operations. “We believe that small behavior changes, such as wearing a seatbelt and slowing down, can help teens focus on the critical task of getting to their destination safely.”According to the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety: • Fifty–six percent of American teens in fatal car crashes were not wearing a seat belt. • Speeding is a factor in one out of every three teen fatal crashes. • For teens, adding one teen passenger to a car increases their crash risk by almost 50 percent and that risk grows exponentially as more teen passengers are added – 202 percent more likely to crash with two teen passengers and 439 percent more likely with three or more teen passengers.The #GetThereSafe program supports the commitment that The Allstate Foundation has made to help reduce teen crash fatalities.
