Runner hides in tree overnight to escape charging bear

first_imgA college runner recently had a campout to remember after spending the night up a tree because she was chased by a bear. Runner’s World reports that Rachel Smith, 19, set out on a seven-mile run on the Big Otter Trail in the HaDaRonDah Wilderness Area of the Adirondacks. Before leaving home, she told her mom she’d be back in 90 minutes or less—but Smith didn’t return that night. Jordan Metzl, M.D., a sports medicine physician at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, told Runner’s World that in one instance, a strong athlete and CrossFit enthusiast in her early 30s contracted COVID-19. Feeling tired and sluggish she went for a run to feel better and died of a heart attack. “She was young and healthy and had no pre-existing cardiac history,” he said. “It’s very important to be conservative with COVID-19.”  Runner hides in tree overnight to escape charging bear Fall colors may be subdued in the mountains this year While the general rule of thumb maintains that exercising through minor illness is safe and can even benefit the body, new evidence suggests that exercising while infected with COVID-19 may have serious consequences. A study published in JAMA Cardiology found that out of 100 adults that had recovered from COVID-19 after being asymptomatic or experiencing moderate symptoms, 78 of them had structural changes to their heart 3 months after recovery.  Hoping to take some hikes beneath a colorful canopy this fall? Experts say that the typical vibrantly hued leaves my be muted this year thanks to all the rain and warm weather the region has experienced. Western Carolina University biology professor Beverly Collins told ABC 13 News that the warm and wet weather delays photosynthesis and can especially impact the red color in leaves. Overall, Collins predicts that the colors this year may be more “subdued.” center_img Regardless of how the weather impacts the color of the leaves, the same rules for leaf-peeping still apply. To catch the first changing colors of fall, head to the higher elevations where the color shows first.

The bear pursued her, and Smith eventually found a small tree she could climb to escape the bear. The terrified runner spent the night there, squatting or standing on one leg the tree was too small to sit in, as the bear circled below her. In the morning, Smith was able to leave her perch in the tree and make the long run home.  Evidence shows exercising while sick with COVID-19 can make symptoms worselast_img read more

Board approves new procedures for ethics opinions

first_imgBoard approves new procedures for ethics opinions Senior Editor New procedures for handling ethics and advertising opinions have been given final approval by the Bar Board of Governors.The board also, at its recent Jacksonville meeting, asked the Professional Ethics Committee to prepare opinions on two issues, heard an ethics appeal, and acted on eight advertising appeals.The changes to The Florida Bar Procedures for Ruling on Questions of Ethics and The Florida Bar Procedures for issuing Advisory Opinions Relating to Lawyer Advertising and Solicitation have been extensively discussed at past meetings and were approved on the board’s consent agenda. The changes clarify that the board has the authority to issue its own opinions without going through the PEC. Board members have said they expect that authority to be rarely, if ever, used.Changes were made to the advertising rules to mirror procedures for ethics opinions and appeals.On the requested opinions, the PEC had asked the board to authorize it to prepare opinions in two areas. The PEC had been reviewing these questions prior to the change in procedure which requires the PEC to ask the board for authorization. One deals with a lawyer’s obligation to third parties who make claims on funds held in trust by the lawyer. The second deals with lawyer’s ethical obligations when approached by a represented client seeking a second opinion.A third issue was raised by a lawyer appealing a PEC action to the board. The lawyer asked about requiring indemnity from the client before releasing escrow monies from the lawyer’s trust account. The lawyer sued the client under the indemnity agreement and asked the PEC for advice when the client claimed the agreement was unethical.The PEC ruled that it couldn’t answer since the inquiry involved a past action rather than a prospective one, as required by Bar rules. The Board Review Committee on Professional Ethics recommended the board ratify that decision, but that the board also request an advisory opinion from the PEC on the issue posed by the inquiry as a subject of interest to a large number of Bar members.The board approved the BRCPE recommendation.The May meeting marked the first time the governors used a new advertising appeal procedure where ad appeals go to the board consent agenda as affirming SCA decisions. The board then automatically approves those unless either the BRCPE or any single board member requests it be discussed first.The board discussed two of the eight advertising appeals; the rest were automatically approved in the consent agenda.On one of the advertising cases, the board upheld the BRCPE action in saying a lawyer could use an image of the American flag in the background of Yellow Pages ad. The Standing Committee on Advertising had said that was not allowed because it was not objectively related to the need of potential clients for legal services.Board member Steve Chaykin said he was concerned about the exploitation of the flag and whether the Bar would be able to prohibit lawyers using the flags of other countries. But board member David Welch said the board had allowed flags in other types of ads and it should be allowed in this ad.In the second appeal, Chair Richard Tanner said the BRCPE voted that a lawyer could not use the Bar-approved logo for trial lawyer certification in a TV ad because it violated the rule which says a lawyer may not show any visual image other than the lawyer in front of a single solid color, a set of plain law books, or the lawyer’s own office. The rule on TV ads allows “safe harbor” information listed in another rule, which includes the board certification logo.In response to a question, Tanner said proposed rule changes would allow the image next year, but he said the committee felt it had to uphold the current rule. The BRCPE based its decision on statutory construction principles that a more specific provision controls a general provision in a rule. But board members, who voted to reverse the BRCPE action, said other rules encourage use of the logo and the board had the authority to interpret which portion of the rule controlled.Jacksonville attorney Jake Schickel, representing the Board of Legal Specialization and Education, agreed.“Commentary to the rule adopted in 1999 indicated the purposes of the rule were to prevent abuses and incorrect public assumptions,” he said. “We do not believe the intent of the rule is to preclude the use of the certification logo, which was approved by this board.”“It’s relatively hypocritical on our part to prevent this person from placing this certification logo in a television ad when we allow it in every other type of advertising under the rules,” board member Andrew Needle said. “All it requires is an interpretation that one part of the rule controls over another.”On other advertising appeals, the board upheld the Standing Committee on Advertising in finding that:• An unjustified expectation could be created in ads by using the language, “Trusted by Thousands,” “If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence turn to people you know and trust” and “We’ve worked as a team for over 25 years to help families pay medical bills, rebuild their lives and gain a sense of peace.”• An ad touting a law firm as pioneer in community association law, being known as the “condominium law firm,” and being recognized as a leader in that area of law was an improper characterization of the quality of services.• A Web site of a local bar’s real estate section must comply with the advertising rules because it contains contact information for the attorneys.• A direct mail solicitation from a criminal defense lawyer created unjustified expectations or made misleading statements with several claims, including that sealing a criminal record would prevent it from ever being disclosed, the attorney could persuade prosecutors not to file charges, the attorney could help the client avoid charges, and similar assertions.• An unjustified expectation was created by using the language, “This office can help clients comply with Medicaid eligibility requirements while preserving assets to the full extent under the law.” July 1, 2002 Gary Blankenship Senior Editor Regular News Board approves new procedures for ethics opinionslast_img read more

Hungary haunted by post-WWI ‘dismemberment’, 100 years on

first_img‘Betrayed by the West’ “The great powers led by France unjustly punished Hungary, no matter the cost,” Csaba Pal Szabo, director of a state-financed Trianon Museum, told AFP at the museum’s archive in the city of Szeged near the Serbian border.”We were betrayed by the West.”Szabo objects to what he says were unfairly drawn borders “not reflecting ethnic populations on the ground”.Among the historical maps and memorabilia on display are 1920s propaganda material proclaiming “No! No! Never!” — and calling for territorial revision.Hungary’s interwar leader Miklos Horthy later allied with Nazi Germany, partly in a bid to reclaim lost lands. But another treaty in 1947 confirmed the borders set out at Trianon.During the subsequent four decades of communist rule, any mention of Trianon was taboo in case it riled fellow socialist states.This was despite widespread discrimination endured by Magyar minorities — especially under Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. “The Trianon borders split up villages and families,” Molnar told AFP, pointing at church towers across the fields — each in a different country.Hungary, as part of the defeated Austro-Hungarian empire, was forced to sign away two-thirds of its territory, and half of its multi-ethnic population.At a stroke, more than three million ethnic Hungarians — or Magyars — a third of the total, as well as key economic resources and several historic cities became part of neighboring states. ‘National Cohesion’ EU membership for Hungary and most of its neighbors has since 2004 brought more cross-border freedom of movement. Even so, moving on from Trianon has proved difficult.On coming to power in 2010, Orban adopted an assertive “national policy” aimed at uniting Hungarians after what he calls the “dismemberment”.Orban, 57, swiftly declared June 4 a “Day of National Cohesion”, and has since sent lavish financial aid to schools, cultural and religious groups in the diaspora. He also granted dual citizenship and voting rights to more than a million non-residents — many of whom have voted for his Fidesz party in Hungarian elections.A “National Cohesion” monument will be unveiled soon in Budapest bearing the Hungarian-language names of villages, towns and cities in pre-WWI Greater Hungary.After historians spotted that many of the localities listed on it were never populated by ethnic Hungarians, a government official denied the edifice expressed a desire to turn the clock back.Orban’s fondness for Greater Hungary nostalgia encourages an idealized picture of relations between Hungarians and other ethnic groups before WW1, according to analysts, and appeals to ultra-nationalistic voters in particular.In recent speeches, he has made what appear to be more conciliatory calls for regional cooperation to “build Central Europe”.But Orban’s critics worry that his policies have frayed relations with Hungary’s neighbors — and could harm the prospects of the diaspora communities.In Romania, Hungarian aid to Transylvania is seen as meddling. Orban is accused by nationalists there of fomenting demands for autonomy in the mostly ethnic-Hungarian Szeklerland region.Many new dual citizens in non-EU members Serbia and Ukraine meanwhile have used their Hungarian passports to emigrate to Hungary or richer western Europe rather than stay home. For Hungary’s nationalist leader Viktor Orban it marks the country’s darkest day: “June 4, 1920,” a date carved into a triangular column marking the spot where the Hungarian, Romanian, and Serbian borders meet.It was on that day, soon after World War I, that a treaty was signed in the Trianon palace in Versailles, France, defining Hungary’s new shrunken frontiers after the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian empire.”Flags here will be at half-mast on June 4,” said Robert Molnar, mayor of Kubekhaza, a village beside the tri-border, ahead of the centenary Thursday.center_img Moving on The diaspora population in Hungary’s neighbors has dwindled to under two million, mainly due to emigration and assimilation over the past century.But many Hungarians still have relatives or roots there, ensuring that Trianon remains an emotive issue.Budapest’s liberal mayor has called for a minute of silence across the city Thursday, a sign that the trauma cuts across party lines.”It’s unclear how Hungary can ever get over it,” historian Gabor Egry told AFP.”Official commemorations emphasize only the suffering, not the nuances or diversity of the minority experiences in the different countries, or how things have changed.”Balazs Erlauer, a 34-year-old Magyar from Serbia’s multi-ethnic Vojvodina region who moved to Hungary when his family fled the 1990s Yugoslav wars, said he “would happily forget about discussing Trianon” if he was allowed to do so.What bothered him, he told AFP, was not “lines on a map as much as nationalistic aggression”.

Pochettino welcomes Walker return

first_img The north Londoners will face a Europa League group winner or one of the best-performing Champions League drop-outs, meaning the mouth-watering prospect of facing Zenit St Petersburg, managed by former Spurs head coach Andre Villas-Boas, is on the cards. “We need to look forward,” Pochettino said. “We have to see the draw on Monday. “It is a shame because we would have finished top of the table (with a point), but now we need to look forward. “We have to be focused not just on this competition, as we have the Premier League on Sunday and, after, on Wednesday against Newcastle in the Capital One Cup.” “We need to see the draw on Monday and to win the Europa League. It’s a shame we didn’t finish on the top of the table.” The England full-back admitted he was a “little rusty” in the 75 minutes he managed in Turkey, but Pochettino was impressed by his display in the 1-0 Europa League defeat to Besiktas. “I think that he did well,” the Spurs head coach said. “He had a very good performance. He showed that he is fit and we decided only to play him for 75 minutes because it is good for his first official game after his injury. “I am happy. I am happy because he is a very good player and an important player for us.” Walker’s return was one of few highlights on a disappointing evening for Spurs at the Ataturk Olimpiyat Stadium. Pochettino was frustrated by the “laughable” floodlight failures at Besiktas’ temporary home, although he was more annoyed by his players’ poor showing in front of goal. Roberto Soldado was the main culprit, with those missed opportunities allowing Cenk Tosun to secure Slaven Bilic’s side the victory which saw them go above Tottenham at the top of Group C. Both sides were already assured of a place in Monday’s last-32 draw heading into the match, but the defeat means Spurs, in theory, will now get a tougher draw. The 24-year-old had been laid low since March with a pelvic complaint which caused the right-back to miss the World Cup and the start of the Argentinian’s reign in north London. Walker suffered a setback in September and underwent lower abdominal surgery – a move the north London club had hoped to avoid – but on Thursday he at last made his first-team return. Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino was impressed by the way Kyle Walker performed on his comeback from a nine-month injury lay-off. Press Associationlast_img read more
