Watch: Deputies Help Bear Family Rescue Cub Trapped in DumpsterCouple Uses Baseball Bat, Fists to Fight Off Bear That Entered Home Stay on target We usually hear about the dangers of lightning strikes — the U.S averages 51 annual lightning strike fatalities in the last 20 years, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). But humans are not the only victims of lightning strikes — animals are, to0.On Monday night, a bear in Colorado was killed when the tree it was sitting in was struck by lightning, according to wildlife officials.The bear was in a tree and died instantly, Colorado Parks and Wildlife SE Region said on Twitter. (Photo Credit: CPW SE / Twitter)“[The bear] died instantly,” Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s (CPW) Southeast Region said on Twitter on Tuesday.The incident occurred in Woodland Park in Teller County, Colo.The agency cautioned that lightning doesn’t just kill people in the state, but wildlife also can suffer a similar fate.CPW officer Tim Kroening estimated that the bear weighed around 300 pounds.Lightning doesn’t just kill people in Colorado. This tree in Woodland Park was struck by lighting late Monday night. Unfortunately, this old bear was in the tree. It died instantly. @COParksWildlife officer Tim Kroening estimates the bear weighed around 300 pounds. pic.twitter.com/LLSK5umxIo— CPW SE Region (@CPW_SE) August 13, 2019The age of the bear was unclear, but based on his weight, he was determined to be an older bear, CPW spokesman Jason Clay told the Denver Post.According to Clay, while it’s also possible that the bear died from the fall if he was located very high up in the tree, park officials are certain lightning was the cause of the bear’s death.In June, two giraffes were killed by lightning at a Florida safari park. But perhaps the most famous lightning strike victim (and survivor) of the animal world is Sparky the bison at Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge in Iowa, who was struck in 2013.Sparky the bison was struck by lightning in 2013, but survived.

Anyone outside near a lightning strike is potentially a victim of ground current.More on Geek.com:Watch: Woman Films Dangerous ‘Positive Lightning’ Bolt in FloridaFirefighters Find Eerie Tree Burning From Inside After Lightning StrikeLightning Strikes: New Report Reveals 10 Most Struck U.S. States
WhatsApp Facebook Pinterest Adam Martin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Live Podcast: Reviewing and discussing WWE Clash of Champions from Charlotte According to a new report by CNN on Monday, the Saudis are currently preparing a report that will acknowledge the death of Saudi national and United States resident/Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.The report, according to two sources, will admit that Khashoggi’s death was the result of an interrogation “that went wrong” and one that was intended to lead to his abduction from Turkey. The same report is also expected to indicate that it was carried out “without clearance and transparency and that those involved will be held responsible.”Khashoggi was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in Turkey on October 2. As reported earlier, Turkish authorities told the Washington Post they have audio recordings proving Khashoggi was “killed and dismembered at the behest of the Saudi government ” inside the consulate, noting he was detained by a Saudi security team upon entering.WWE has received media backlash since this past weekend for continuing to go forward with the upcoming Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia at King Saud University Stadium in Riyadh on November 2. Any advertising for the event on WWE.com is no longer listing any references to the country of Saudi Arabia at the time of this report.When reached for comment on Monday, a WWE representative informed Wrestleview.com that they are sticking with the same statement issued over the weekend, which stated the company was continuing to monitor the ongoing situation in Saudi Arabia.According to The Hollywood Reporter, Endeavor Content is set to pull out of its $400 million deal with Saudi Arabia in the wake of Khashoggi’s disappearance.“Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” on HBO did a segment profiling the situation currently in Saudi Arabia, including WWE’s current relationship with the country.WWE is pushing two World Cup qualifying matches for RAW tonight, promoting that the tournament will take place in three weeks at Crown Jewel.So, as of now, it would appear WWE has no plans of canceling the event or relocating based on recent statements in the last few days.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — President-elect Donald Trump ditched his press pool once again, traveling to play golf at one of his clubs without a pool of journalists on hand to ensure the public has knowledge of his whereabouts.Before he went golfing Saturday, Trump tweeted an unusual New Year’s message to friends and foes: “Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love!”The president-elect planned to spend New Year’s Eve at his private Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach. He was throwing a private party expected to draw hundreds of guests, including action star Sylvester Stallone.A member of Trump’s golf club in Jupiter, Florida, posted a photo on Twitter of Trump on the greens Saturday morning and said about 25 U.S. Secret Service agents accompanied the president-elect. Reporters had not been advised of the visit to the club.Transition aide Stephanie Grisham confirmed that Trump had made a “last-minute trip” to Trump National Golf Club Jupiter, which is about a half-hour drive from his Mar-a-Lago estate, where Trump has been spending the holidays. He returned to the estate at midafternoon.
For 21-year-old Jake Cushman, the drive to be a crime scene investigator starts with his dad.The recent Portland Community College graduate said that growing up in Vancouver, he was proud of his father, Adam Cushman, who worked as a criminalist for the Portland Police Bureau. The two were close, enjoying the same “nerdy” interest such as “Star Wars” and superheroes. Together, they loved watching the show “Smallville,” a show that depicts a young Clark Kent as he comes to terms with his superpowers.But one Sunday night in February 2010, Adam Cushman was killed in a crash on his way home from work.A dump truck driver was driving in the 7300 block of Northeast 182nd Avenue when his engine stalled. His truck was partially in the northbound lanes, and the driver turned off the truck’s lights to restart it. The truck was rolling backward when it was struck by Cushman’s Honda Accord.Adam Cushman was pronounced dead at the scene.“He was supposed to be bringing us pizza, and he didn’t make it home,” Jake Cushman said. “It’s always been tough to deal with it. Nobody has to be at fault; it was just a fluke.”Jake Cushman, who was 13 at the time, said the loss shut him down. But one of the things that helped him through that time and the next few years was his father’s co-workers. They brought him and his little brother Christmas presents and came out to help with the yardwork.And because they knew that Jake Cushman wanted to be a criminalist, like his father, they started taking him to the shooting range, something he said his dad would have eventually done with him.
Two people were arrested, and a driver who drove a pickup nearly through several protesters was detained, following a rally thrown by local conservative activist Joey Gibson at the Vancouver waterfront.Around 4 p.m., after the rally, counterprotesters had begun to disperse, heading downtown and toward Esther Short Park, some to follow and continue to engage with people leaving Gibson’s event.A driver in a pickup and protesters along Columbia Street, near the entrance to the Vancouver Convention Center, apparently goaded each other, and protesters started kicking the truck.The man driving then reversed, prompting the crowd around the pickup to scatter.Shortly after, the pickup — a black, lifted Chevrolet Silverado with two American flags flying from its hood — swung back around to Sixth Street.Some in the crowd tossed rocks and water bottles at the pickup.The driver pulled past three vehicles waiting in front of him and accelerated through the Washington Street light at Sixth Street. A police officer immediately stopped and detained the man driving.The driver’s identity was not immediately clear. Vancouver Police Department spokeswoman Kim Kapp said the man was not arrested.The Vancouver police said officers arrested two people: Shawna L. Gonzalez, 34, was arrested on suspicion of reckless endangerment. Kapp said Gonzalez tossed chunks of wood at a crowd. Gonzalez’ residence was not available.
Larry Whittlesey has much to say about the choices we face every day and how our handling of those choices will determine whether we make a difference in our community or not. “Making a difference in our community will be determined by the choices we make as a group of people, as individuals, as organizations, as families, as churches, as YMCAs, as nonprofits,” he told a group of several hundred breakfast attendees. “It’s the choices we make that will determine whether we make a difference in our community.”Whittlesey was the keynote speaker of this year’s Clark County Prayer Breakfast. In his event biography, Whittlesey is described as “always being the community pastor.” He was born in Portland but has lived around the western United States before returning several decades later. He serves as the national director of the U.S. Mission Network for the YMCA, a role that causes him to travel the country and promote the Christian aspect of the YMCA’s mission. In his speech, Whittlesey said that people are full of all kinds of motivations, including building wealth, leading successful careers and filling their memories with a lifetime of unique exciting experiences.But he believes people are truly enriched through service. “I believe what really fulfills us is making a difference in the world around us,” he said, “so that we can lay our head on the pillow for the last time and think something good happened because we were around. … Now, like many things in life, that truth is simple, but it’s not easy.”
Kristin Tufte thinks the journey toward smart cities can be simplified into three words: People, intention and coordination.“It’s data and technology and service of people,” said Tufte, Smart Cities Liaison for Portland State University. “Is the pedestrian on the street safer because of our work? Does the woman taking the bus to work know it will get her to work on time so she can relax on the bus?”Tufte was one of three speakers Wednesday at Regional Transportation Council’s Smart Cities Workshop, which focused not only on smart cities but some regional opportunities.The general aim in being a smart city is to use information technology to not only increase efficiency and improve government but to better share information with the public while improving their lives.Connecting communitiesJesse Berst, chair of the Smart Cities Council, said the only way cities can move forward is to communicate with each other and share data.“Many American communities are falling behind in this race,” Berst said. “It’s a race for the connected lifestyle but also for a better government. If you believe in accountability, in transparency, we have the tools now.”
Jill Kurtz, an attorney known for being a sleeves-rolled-up leader in many community clubs in north Clark County, died of a pulmonary embolism Sunday at her home in Battle Ground. She was 63.Kurtz is survived by her husband David, three children and two grandchildren.A full-time probate attorney and serial volunteer, Kurtz is remembered by friends and family for mixing persistence with patience. She was a partner at her family’s law firm, an avid gardener, an equestrian and a member of numerous community organizations.Yet she made time for both clients and coworkers — who were often her family, too.“Clients felt they could just walk in and see her. She would make time,” said son David Kurtz, who practices probate law at the firm alongside his two uncles, brother and cousin. “She was extremely generous with her time to the point I felt she was overextending herself. But she just enjoyed it. It was never something she felt was a burden.”For Kurtz, family and law seemed to go hand in hand.After graduating from Gonzaga University School of Law in 1981, she began practicing law with her father, Earl Jackson Sr. After his death four years later, she and her two brothers founded the firm Jackson, Jackson & Kurtz, with a bailiwick in estate planning and real estate law.By then she had married a lawyer, too, and had given birth two sons who would join the family firm years later.“After school, we’d hang out at the firm and wait until she was done to take us home,” said David Kurtz. “We did spend quite a bit of time in the conference room, now that I think of it. I think it was kind of destined we were going to be attorneys.”
President Donald Trump signed bipartisan legislation addressing the opioid crisis into law Wednesday. The bill contains federal funding expected to provide treatment and services in Clark County.The bill focuses on preventing addiction through improved access to treatment centers and eliminating some coverage restrictions for patients on Medicare or Medicaid.Nationwide, nearly 48,000 people overdosed from opioid use last year. In Clark County 39 people died as a result of opioid overdose, and 732 deaths occurred statewide.“Together, we are going to end the scourge of drug addiction in America,” Trump said at an event celebrating the bill’s signing. “We are going to end it or we are going to at least make an extremely big dent in this terrible, terrible problem.”Trump declared the epidemic an emergency last October. A report from the Government Accountability Office, released this week, evaluated the results of Trump’s emergency declaration at the request of Democrats, including Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash. The report found the White House fell short on its promises. In the last year, only three new authorities were granted as a result of the emergency, which included giving two states permission to progress faster with programming and providing support for proposed research initiatives.In a statement, Murray said, “While President Trump’s repeated failures to live up to his promises are disappointing, I’m glad Congress has been able to lead the way on taking meaningful steps to help the families and communities on the front lines of this crisis by providing additional funds and passing a comprehensive bill to address the root causes and ripple effects of this epidemic.”

By Louise JobeThe Director of Administration and Public Relation Officer of the Brikama Area Council, Ebrima Sawaneh, on Thursday said the council will invite the youth-led group called ‘occupyBAC’ for a dialogue to look into their demands.The group that identified itself as ‘occupy BAC’ demanded for better social service to the people of their region such as good roads, standard market facilities, proper waste collection system, good drainage amenities and proper utilization of the council rates and taxes for the development of the region.The protest, according to the demonstrators, was prearranged to manifest their dissatisfaction over what they called the poor management of the Brikama Area Council. They said the Council has failed to provide the area with good roads, standard markets and garbage collection system. In addition, the protesters said the people of the Region pay rates to council and yet they do not realize the benefit of being tax compliant. They also said the region has a poor drainage system as well. According to the protesters, the authorities are not sensitive to the plight of vendors.PRO Sawaneh told Foroyaa the council will invite the demonstrators for a dialogue in which some of the things stated in their petition as concerned youths of the West Coast Region, would be clarified by the council management. He added they would tell the youths the limits of the council and its responsibilities because some of the demands are not within their mandate as a council.“We have received their petition and we have looked at it, in fact, we are going to invite them and tell them that the demands written on their document such as good roads, electricity among others are not the responsibilities of the council; perhaps they do not understand that some of those things do not lie on the area councils,” the BAC PRO said.He said he did not blame them maybe they do not know what the responsibilities and functions of the council are.“Some of the things stated in their demand are not the council’s duties,” he said.He added the CEO of the council is going to invite them and tell them what is the responsibilities of the Brikama Area Council are.He said the council is currently facing difficulties in terms of provision of some social services to the people of the Region because taxes levied on sand mining, car park fee, cattle tax and billboard fee are collected by the Central Government and the National Revenue Authority respectively.
Arsene Wenger has dismissed concerns over the lack of attendance in Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Stoke City on Saturday’s league matchThree late second-half goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (twice) and Alexandre Lacazette secured the three points for Wenger’s side. But the match was largely overshadowed by the notable lack seats being unoccupied in the stands.Arsenal found themselves being booed by their own supporters at the end of the first-half with Aaron Ramsey having clipped the crossbar in what was their only chance in the opening 45 minutes.However, a foul by Bruno Martins Indi on Mesut Ozil gave Arsenal an unexpected penalty with Aubameyang slotting home to give the Gunners the lead. The Gabon international then later added his second of the game by heading in a Ozil corner.Arsenal were later awarded another penalty when Badou Ndiaye’s pushed substitute Lacazette inside the box. The Frenchman then coolly slotted home the penalty to secure his side a 3-0 win at the Emirates.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…Speaking after the match, Wenger insisted that it was due to Arsenal no longer being involved in any challenge that had resulted in the large absence of supporters during the win. But the Frenchman is confident that they fans will return for their Europa League quarter-final clash against CSKA Moscow on Thursday.“It’s just down to the fact that we’re not fighting for the championship,” said the Arsenal coach, according to the BBC.“People know that will not change now. They will be back on Thursday, don’t worry.“It’s explainable by the fact that it’s Easter. It’s a family happening where people go away and it’s a fact that we don’t think about a lot in the Premier League. There’s also the fact that we had a break.”Arsenal remain in sixth place in the Premier League standings with their only realistic chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League depending on whether they will be able to win the Europa League.
Fernando Torres has insisted that he is more focused on winning his first title at Atletico Madrid, rather than think about the lack of minutes he has received this seasonLos Colchoneros will be facing Arsenal at the Emirates for the first leg of their semi-final clash in the Europa league with the Gunners determined to win the trophy for the departing Arsene Wenger.But Torres, who himself will be leaving his beloved Atletico at the end of this season, is hopeful of overcoming Arsenal and finally winning his first piece of silverware with his boyhood club.“I prefer to think about possibly winning my first title with Atletico,” answered Torres, when asked about how many minutes he’s getting, as reported on Marca.“It doesn’t help to think about other things.“It’s important that we’re all excited about being two games away from a European final.”The former Liverpool and Chelsea forward paid tribute to his former international teammate Andres Iniesta, who is set to confirm his future plans within the week.“Iniesta hasn’t announced his future yet, but he’s earned the right to decide,” he confirmed.“He left his family when he was young in order to fulfil a dream, everyone will respect his choice.Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“It’ll be a great loss for LaLiga if Iniesta isn’t here, he’s been performing at the top for so many years.“I’ll be both happy and sad should he decide to leave.”Torres is aware that Atletico cannot take Arsenal’s struggles this season for granted.“Our squad is showing a fantastic attitude at present,” he admitted.“It’s difficult to drop LaLiga to think about the Europa League and vice versa, but the team is trying to do it and that’s helping us grow.“Thursday is one of the most important games we’ve had.“We know that, we know how to play in England and it will be a privilege to fight for that trophy.”

However, there were fears the 20-year-old could be forced to miss some or all of the opening group games with an injury.

The Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea in yesterday’s match between Spain and Portugal let a shot from Cristiano Ronaldo slip through his grasp before half-time as Portugal restored their lead for a 3-3 draw.“He’s my boy,” said United manager Mourinho via Sky Sport.“It hurts me to say but he knows, he knows, it’s a bad mistake. But that happens to the best, the good thing with the best is he will be there next match, not afraid.”Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…In summarizing the game, Mourinho said he thought the second-half substitution of Diego Costa, who scored twice, hurt Spain.“For me there was a game with Diego Costa and a game without Diego Costa – the game changed.“I don’t think the game was perfect. I don’t think either team was able to be dominant for 90 minutes, I think some of the goals are some goals that make us want to not sleep.”
Juventus new signing Mattia Caldara has revealed that Mario Mandzukic is ‘the toughest player I’ve marked’ as his ‘most impressive opponent’ was Douglas Costa.“The objective is to play as much as possible. I’m aware that it’ll be complicated, but I’ll try to play for my chances and show I’m worthy of this jersey,” he said via Football Italia.“Family? Without them, I wouldn’t be here. I’ve always been close to them during times of difficulty, so I thank them, as well as my girlfriend, who is always close to me.“I’m lucky to be surrounded by people who love me. Gasperini? He gave me so much in these two years, he told me not to be afraid and to show my qualities.“I’ll always be indebted to him.

It’s always been Mandzukic in terms of physicality and character.“Ronaldo? It’s better that I don’t have to think about marking him! Thank goodness he’s my teammate…“Allegri? I understood him immediately because he’s won so much. He knows how to manage great players, he knows when to have a joke and when to be strict.“We haven’t said much until now, but he also agreed with my arrival. Most impressive opponent? Douglas Costa.“He always gets past at least two players, he’s phenomenal. I lived those games [against Juve] with even more motivation because I wanted to show that I was good enough for them.”
Former England goalkeeper Rob Green has emerged as a shock target for Chelsea in a free transfer, reports talkSPORTThe Blues are on the hunt for a new goalkeeper this summer with current number one Thibaut Courtois edging closer than ever to completing a dream move to Real Madrid.In light of this, Chelsea have rather surprisingly offered Green to chance to continue his playing career for at least one more season by acting as cover for them.The 38-year-old spent last season on the bench at fellow Premier League side Huddersfield and was released by the club at the end of last season.Chelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.With few options available, Green had contemplated calling time on his rapidly declining career.But in a new twist, the former Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper could now be set to make a return to London this summer with Chelsea and will compete with Argentina international Willy Caballero for the No.1 jersey at Stamford Bridge.Both Stoke City’s Jack Butland and new AC Milan signing Pepe Reina have also been linked with moves to Chelsea.
