Outdoor Updates: Lost Hiker Found on Foothills Trail

first_img“Bears are NOT Billboards!” HAB said in a Facebook post. “HAB is offering a $5,000 reward for information on the person(s) responsible for putting this political sticker on this beautiful bear who has already been trapped, tranquilized, and collared unnecessarily.” Courthouse Creek Road on North Carolina’s Pisgah National Forest is temporarily closed to motorized use until December 31, 2020. Non-motorized use is allowed. The road is closed due to active timber operations involving the use of heavy equipment and large trucks in the area. The closure helps to ensure the safety of forest visitors. Hikers and bikers are asked to be aware of increased truck traffic.  Building rock cairns or flipping over stones in creeks to search for salamanders may seem like a fun way to spend the day, but naturalists want to remind the public that rock cairns aren’t art and flipping or moving rocks in waterways disturbs the habitat of aquatic creatures. “The avoided deaths are valued at more than $37 trillion. The avoided health care spending due to reduced hospitalizations and emergency room visits exceeds $37 billion, and the increased labor productivity is valued at more than $75 billion,” Drew Shindell, a professor at Duke, told lawmakers.  Virginia teens embark on 21-mile hike to raise money for childhood cancer research Rock stacking is of particular concern to the Hellbender salamander, which lives in silt-free mountain streams. These threatened salamanders are the largest in the United States and are nocturnal, spending most of their day hiding beneath rocks. To learn more about the Hellbender and the negative effects of rock stacking, check out this 10 minute documentary.  Two North Carolina catfish state records broken in July Photo: Headwaters of the Chattooga River in the dense forests of the Appalachian Mountains of Western North Carolina courtesy of Getty Images by mtilghma Catfish anglers in the Tarheel state had an impressive month after two of them caught record catfish, breaking state records. On July 5, Joey Baird of Lawrenceville, VA caught a 121-pound, 9-ounce blue catfish from Six Pound Creek at Lake Gaston. Just 15 days later, Tyler Barnes of Pikeville, NC broke the 15-year-old freshwater fish state record for a flathead catfish, reeling in a 78-pound, 14-ounce fish from the Neuse River.  Reward offered for information on who put ‘Trump 2020’ on Asheville bear Clean water activist and adventurer, Katie Spotz, will run through the entire state of Maine to raise funds for non-profit Lifewater International in their global mission to ensure every child has safe water. On September 5, Spotz will begin her run at the Canadian border, running south until she reaches Belfast, Maine—an anticipated 30-36 hours of non-stop running. She will be the first person ever to complete the 130-mile journey. The distance represents 10% of the total distance someone in a village without water travels annually to access a water source that is often not clean or sanitary. “Partners like Katie make this life-changing work possible,” said Gary Weyel, Lifewater Director of Communications. “Because of her efforts, vulnerable families in very remote regions of Tanzania will have clean water, improved health, and hope for the future.”  Three 14-year-old teenagers from Virginia are hitting the trail for a good cause. Lifelong friends Joseph Campione, Erik Gunderson and Lauren Allen will soon hike 21-miles through West Virginia to raise money for childhood cancer research. Campione, who has made the hike alone the past two years, is a survivor of a rare childhood cancer that still impacts him today. “During cancer, radiation stray beams hit my hip and ultimately destroyed part of it,” he told WJLA. Runner plans nonstop endurance feat across Maine to raise money for clean water New study warns eating protein at night can raise blood sugar the next morning Earlier today we reported that authorities in Oconee County were searching for a 27-year-old man from Texas who became separated from his friends while hiking the Foothills Trail near the Chattooga River. Richard Gonzalez lost his friends on the trail between Nicholson Ford and Burrells Ford, Oconee County Emergency Services said on their Facebook page.  Researchers found that healthy young men and women who consumed protein in the middle of the night had significantly higher blood sugar levels after eating breakfast a few hours later than when they only had water overnight, Runner’s World reports. Though the reason for this is unclear, one theory is that the body doesn’t need or expect much food at night, so instead of using protein the way it would during the day, the body turns the protein into sugar instead.  Courthouse Creek Road on Pisgah National Forest closes temporarily To qualify for a N.C. Freshwater Fish State Record, anglers must have caught the fish by rod and reel or cane pole; have the fish weighed on a scale certified by the N.C. Department of Agriculture, witnessed by one observer; have the fish identified by a fisheries biologist from the Commission; and submit an application with a full, side-view photo of the fish.  Wednesday, August 5 Athletes may be tempted to eat a protein-heavy dinner after an evening workout and then consume protein again after a morning workout, but research presented at The Physiological Society’s virtual conference warns that consuming protein later in the evening and then again when you wake up in the morning can result in higher blood sugar levels in the morning. Bear activists in Asheville, NC are furious after someone put a ‘Trump 2020’ sticker on a bear’s tracker collar. The group, “Help Asheville Bears” (HAB), is offering a $5,000 reward for information on who is responsible for putting the sticker on the bear.  Naturalists remind the public not to move rocks in waterways Study shows fighting climate change could help US avoid 4.5M early deaths A study out of Duke University concludes that the U.S. could avoid 4.5 million premature deaths if it works to keep global temperatures from rising by more than 2 degrees Celsius, in alignment with the Paris Climate Accord, The Hill reports. The study also found that reducing climate change could prevent about 3.5 million hospitalizations and emergency room visits and 300 million lost workdays in the country. A lost hiker was found on the Foothills Trail in South Carolina’s Jocassee Gorges area. The friends embark on their hike August 15 and have raised $12,000 so far for Curesearch, a National Childhood Cancer Foundation.

The week in football: German TV deal done, Liverpool title wait

first_imgLiverpool need help if they are to clinch a first domestic championship in 30 years this week and a familiar face could say farewell to the Bundesliga, which will also reveal new television deals.In Spain meanwhile, the title race continues apace. After a low-key draw at Everton on Sunday, Liverpool can only clinch the title at home to Crystal Palace on Wednesday if Manchester City slips up at home to Burnley on Monday.But after 30 years since their last English championship, a few days more is unlikely to make much difference.A direct duel with City, in Manchester on July 2, would be their next chance to seal the deal if Pep Guardiola’s side also wins at Chelsea on Thursday.How much will the German football league (DFL) pocket for the next batch of television rights for four seasons from 2021/22?On Monday, the league will officially approve the results of rights auctions both for live games shown on subscription channels or streaming services and highlights packages.

OSU, IU tough tasks for tennis

first_imgThe Wisconsin men’s tennis team hopes to continue its hot streak when it hits the road this weekend.UW will play at Indiana Saturday and then make the trek over to Columbus to face Ohio State Sunday.The first match of the road trip will pit the No. 35 Badgers, winners of eight of their last 10 matches, against the No. 39 Hoosiers. Indiana, currently 12-5 overall and 2-2 in Big Ten play, is led by senior Thomas Richter. Richter holds a 3-3 record versus top 100 opponents this season.The Hoosiers also boast a strong No. 3 doubles tandem of Peter Antons and Santiago Gruter. Antons and Gruter have won 11 of their past 13 matches.“I think Indiana is looking at it as an opportunity to pick up a good win against a good team like us,” head coach Greg Van Emburgh said. “We just really have to be ready to go for every team that we face from here on out.”One thing that will be different for UW this weekend is the opportunity to finally play a conference match outdoors. Wisconsin has not played an outdoor match since the Blue-Gray Classic in Alabama two weeks ago.“I think [the matches] are going to be outside,” Van Emburgh said. “It’s supposed to be nice this weekend, so we should be able to play both matches outside. It’ll be our first conference match outside.”After beating Illinois for the first time in 14 years last weekend, the Badgers hope to break some more streaks this Sunday. Ohio State has a 65-match winning streak at the OSU Varsity Tennis Center and has won 30 consecutive Big Ten matches. The No. 2Buckeyes are also the two-time reigning conference tournament champions and have defeated four top 10 teams this season.Ohio State, 21-1 overall and 4-0 in the Big Ten, boasts three singles players and all three doubles teams in the top 40. Sophomore Justin Kronauge is No. 17 in the nation, and juniors Bryan Koniecko and Steven Moneke are ranked Nos. 18 and 33 respectively. The Badgers will counter with three ranked players of their own in 44th-ranked Moritz Baumann, No. 100 Nolan Polley and 113th-ranked Marek Michalicka. Van Emburgh is confident UW will be able to draw upon their momentum gained from the upset victory over 16th-ranked Illinois.“Hopefully our guys really understand how good they are and that they should be confident heading into these matches,” Van Emburgh said. “But they still need to remember that you have to go out and execute and prove it.”Ohio State head coach Ty Tucker has led the Buckeyes to seven 20-win seasons in his eight years as head coach, including an 11-0 record versus Wisconsin.“From here on out, every match is going to be tough,” Van Emburgh said. “The matches that are left are conference matches, so they’re all going to be tough. We’re playing [Indiana and Ohio State] away, so it will be a challenge.”With a 4-1 start in Big Ten action, the Badgers have put themselves in good position to finish very near the top of the conference. Still, Van Emburgh knows his team will have to fight hard to finish the way it wants to.“I think Ohio State and Indiana are great teams,” Van Emburgh said. “Our conference is getting stronger and stronger. You really have to be prepared to play every match.”last_img read more

New facility for aircraft engines

first_img29 November 2004Public Enterprises Minister Alec Erwin opened Turbomeca Africa’s new manufacturing and maintenance facility adjacent to Johannesburg International Airoport on Friday.The new facility will manufacture gearboxes and civil and military helicopter engines.Turbomeca Africa is a joint venture formed two years ago by South African arms manufacturer Denel and French group Turbomeca, a subsidiary of Snecma.The company manufacturers engines for both domestic firms and international companies such as Rolls-Royce and General Electric, and gives support to repairs and overhauls of civil and military helicopter engines in sub-Saharan Africa.Denel owns 49% of Turbomeca Africa, while the French group owns the remaining 51%.Turbomeca Group chairman Emeric d’Arcimoles said it was a vote of confidence that Turbomeca France was transferring its workload to Turbomeca Africa.He said that engines from the French and British ministries of defence would be overhauled in South Africa from 2005, and that engines for Swedish and Malaysian military aircraft would also be exported by Turbomeca Africa.“We are in the process of re-employing additional competency at the right place to support the growing 2005 demand from Snecma Group, international markets for manufacturing, repair and overhaul, and from the South African Air Force”, d’Arcimoles said.Erwin said the establishment of the new facility was in line with the government’s plan to expand South Africa’s aerospace capabilities and gain entry into the global environment.The venture was also part of the government’s initiative to restructure state-owned enterprises and strengthen their global competitiveness by allying them with foreign partners.“Its an important area for us … to begin to invest in new technology so that we develop our capacity to export”, Erwin said. “We are confident that once we form partnerships with foreign companies, we will attract more foreign partners.”Denel CEO Victor Moche said the new facility would be geared to become a “centre of excellence for engine manufacturing … We want to achieve a standard and be at a stage where the world knows that certain engines are made only in South Africa”.According to Business Day, Denel was recently awarded a US$2-million contract by European military aircraft manufacturer BAE Systems to supply aircraft components for the production of Hawk jets for India’s airforce.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Inbound Marketing at a Maasai Village in Kenya

first_img Don’t forget to share this post! AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to Email AppEmail AppShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to MessengerMessengerShare to SlackSlack Originally published Jun 17, 2008 10:38:00 AM, updated October 01 2019 Don’t advertise. All the safari guides know that there are a number of native villages that will accept outside guests, but you will not find any advertisements to tour the villages or any promotion of it as an activity. The only way we knew about it is that we have friends who have gone on safari before and the sent us pictures of their visit to a village and told us about it. If you think about it, advertising would probably have a negative effect on “business” since the village might feel a lot less “authentic” if there were pamphlets about it at the concierge desk including a $2 off coupon.Encourage user participation. Right from the first few minutes of our visit, the Maasai were asking us to join them in a number of activities, including dancing the “welcome dance” like in the photo above with me in the white t-shirt. (Yes, there is actually video of me dancing with the Maasai. No, you will not get to see it.)  Encouraging feedback, comments and interactions with your users or customers is an important part of inbound marketing because the company no longer controls or owns the market – the customers are in charge now, and you really want to give them a voice and listen to it.Generate lots of content. One fundamental principle of inbound marketing is that companies should act more like publishers, because publishing lots of content relevant to your market creates a magnetic effect of drawing more people toward your content and your company website. The Maasai have embraced this concept. Though they do not create much content themselves – they embrace user generated content because they were always encouraging us to take more and more photos.  Literally, every three stpes in the village, they asked us to take more and more photos.  The marketing benefit of this is that the more photos people take the more likely there will be good an interesting photos that people will share on photo sharing sites like Flickr, continuing to spread the word about visiting a Maasai village.Gather customer feedback. Our guide asked us twice during the visit if we were enjoying ourselves and what they could do differently. At the end he specifically asked a couple questions about certain parts of the visit and if a couple of the other villagers had been helpful or not.  If you are an inbound marketing guru, you know that only if you have a remarkable product will others spread your message for you.  Our guide was very interested in making sure we had a remarkable experience and were more likely to tell others.Ask for recommendations. Finally, if you have a remarkable product, there is something you can do to encourage your customers to spread your message even more.  Ask them.  After we had given some feedback to our guide and said our visit was enjoyable, he asked us to tell our friends to come to Kenya and visit a Maasai village during their trip.Note: I know that it is highly unlikely that someone from a Maasai village in Amboseli, Kenya is reading blog articles and books from places like HubSpot, David Meerman Scott and Seth Godin and then devising an inbound marketing strategy based on that information.  The likely scenario is that all of this just evolved.  However, it is still interesting to me the way that it evolved, and that their strategy embraces inbound marketing so much.What do you think?  Have you seen other interesting and unexpected examples of inbound marketing? Topics:center_img I recently returned from a safari in Kenya (it was a great trip and I recommend it to everyone).  On one of the days, we visited a village of Maasai, which are a semi-nomadic indigenous people.  I wasn’t expecting to pick up any interesting marketing tidbits that day, but on the drive back to where we were staying, I realized that maybe there were some relevant inbound marketing takeaways… Inbound Marketinglast_img read more
