Donations of Gloves and Masks Sought in Cape May County

first_imgCape May County’s government is seeking the public’s help in gathering necessary medical supplies for those at the frontline of the COVID-19 outbreak. The Cape May County Health Department and the Cape May County Office of Emergency Management are seeking donations of sealed boxes of gloves, masks and personal protective equipment from businesses that are closed during the pandemic. Businesses, salons, schools and others may have access to some of these materials that could be vital to medical personnel as time goes forward, according to a county press release.The request is that these donations would be brought to Cape May County OEM, but people should call ahead before making the donation at 609-600-5055.“I have seen our community step up time after time over the years in Cape May County,” said Freeholder Jeff Pierson, liaison to the Health Department. He continued, “If anyone has these gloves, masks, or PPE, we ask them to donate these materials for the doctors, nurses and all first responders on the frontlines.”The need for this equipment is well-known across the United States. It is expected that the need for these medical supplies will increase as testing becomes more available and more positive tests come from residents of Cape May County. “Our OEM and Health Department are working with the state and local medical professionals to ensure that all of the necessary medical supplies are made available,” said Freeholder Director Gerald M. Thornton, liaison to the county’s OEM. Thornton added, “This is an issue across the entire country and any way our local businesses can reduce our need for these medical supplies would be very much appreciated.” Thornton and Pierson are urging Cape May County residents to stay safe and follow current health recommendations to stem the spread of the coronavirus.last_img read more

Dominican Air Force Leads Reforestation Efforts

first_imgAnd last year, the National Department of the Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARENA) declared October National Reforestation Month. SEMARENA proposed intensive tree planting throughout the month, particularly on ranches that had suffered deforestation and along rivers in those areas. A platoon of the Dominican Republic’s Air Force (FARD) is executing an important mission not in the air, but on the ground – by working with the Ministry of the Environment and volunteer organizations on a reforestation project along a major highway. The Dominican federal government sponsors and encourages other reforestation projects carried out by the Armed Forces and other agencies. “Historically, in the Dominican Republic, the Armed Forces, above all the National Army, has been closely tied to preserving the forests and the country’s natural resources,” said Daniel Pou, an associate researcher at the country’s Latin American College of Social Sciences (FLASCO). This sensitive task has helped preserve the tributaries of the Biodiversity Park, where there are three important waterways whose beds are protected by a healthy population of trees: the Yabacao, Cachón and Salto de Socoa Rivers. For example, in 2011 the Military helped plant more than two million trees under the Green Quisqueya plan, which also included the efforts of 15,000 volunteers from different civil society organizations, including private businesses, students and teachers from schools and universities, business associations, government and non-government organizations, and banks. “Historically, in the Dominican Republic, the Armed Forces, above all the National Army, has been closely tied to preserving the forests and the country’s natural resources,” said Daniel Pou, an associate researcher at the country’s Latin American College of Social Sciences (FLASCO). Troops protect the environment by deploying to remote areas of the different mountainous and forested areas of the country, he said. But this practice isn’t recent. The Armed Forces have conducted preservation efforts periodically over the past 15 years. They have taken an active role in preserving tropical trees by maintaining healthy forest areas to help preserve river beds. Air Force members, Ministry of the Environment workers and civilian volunteers have planted more than one million trees during the current reforestation effort, for which the Ministry of the Environment provides the seeds and saplings. The Dominican Republic currently celebrates National Reforestation Day on the last Saturday of each month, during which people plant thousands of trees throughout the country. THE NICARAGUAN EARTHQUAKE The Dominican federal government sponsors and encourages other reforestation projects carried out by the Armed Forces and other agencies. The current reforestation effort is led by Colonel Francisco Gómez Gómez, an Air Force parachutist. The goal of the initiative is to plant enough trees to reduce the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and to improve the quality of life for people who travel along Las Américas Highway, the colonel explained, according to a FARD press release. Preserving and protecting the environment has long been part of the mission of the Dominican Republic’s Armed Forces. The Military’s history of protecting the environment Since December 14, members of the Air Force have performed reforestation work alongside the Nordeste Highway, from the Las Américas Highway to the province of Samaná and near the San Isidro Air Base. The project stretches over some 100 kilometers of highway, where travelers along that important road can see the saplings of calla lilies, cedar, mahogany, oak, acacia, azteca, fiddlewood, olive, rain, beech, ceiba, and other trees that Air Force personnel and other volunteers have planted along both sides of the road.

German clubs buoyed by potential mid-May season restart

first_imgTopics : German football clubs are hoping a return to action is on the horizon, even if it means playing in closed stadiums, after the country’s health minister and regional leaders said matches could potentially resume from May 9.The Bundesliga has been suspended since mid-March due to the outbreak of the new coronavirus, which has infected more than 143,000 and killed over 4,500 in Germany.Regional leaders in Bavaria and North Rhine Westphalia said on Monday that any league resumption would be without fans and that there would be no action before May 9. “These are very positive signals for any resumption of the season,” said Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge in a statement.”It is important that we carefully adhere to any legal and medical guidelines in order to minimize any health risk.”Borussia Dortmund also welcomed the news, saying politicians had been convinced by the league’s plans and that it was now up to clubs to stick to it.”This is a show of faith from politics if it means we can play again from May 9 onwards,” Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke said.center_img “If the league did not have such a well thought-out plan then politicians would have taken a different decision. We now have an obligation to deliver.”German Health Minister Jens Spahn told Bild newspaper on Sunday that a resumption on May 9 would depend on the infection risk.”What is crucial is that the infection risk is minimized,” Spahn said. “That would be for millions of football fans from May 9 onwards a bit of normalcy even with empty stands.”The German Football League will meet on Thursday to discuss the latest developments and consider a possible start date. Bayern are top of the Bundesliga, four points clear of Dortmund, with nine games left in the campaign.The League has warned that many clubs in the first and second divisions faced an uncertain financial future and several would be in an “existence-threatening” situation if play did not resume by June.Some German shops opened for business again this week after a month of lockdown in an agreement with the leaders of Germany’s 16 states, all keen to start the long haul of pulling the economy out of recession.last_img read more

Total Eclipse for Mukhadram

first_img A slightly unlucky third last year when attempting to make all, Paul Hanagan sat just behind True Story’s pacemaker Somewhat this time before kicking on with fully two furlongs to run on the William Haggas-trained winner. Trading Leather was another to sit close to the pace and while he made some headway, two lengths separated the pair at the line. The 100-1 shot Somewhat stuck on for third. Press Association Mukhadram landed his first Group One victory in the Coral-Eclipse Stakes at Sandown Park, with the Jim Bolger-trained Trading Leather running a fine race in second.center_img Derby runner-up Kingston Hill stayed on to finish fourth after all the talk about his participation, but The Fugue disappointed in the race for the second year in succession after being held up way off the pace. Hanagan said: “We went a nice gallop and it just suited perfectly. If there is a horse that deserves that, it’s him. He’s been second in the Dubai World Cup and could have been second in this last year, I’m just so pleased for him. Everyone at the yard has done a fantastic job with the horse. I’m chuffed to bits.” Haggas added: “I’m absolutely thrilled to bits, he so deserves to win a good race. It went well for him, but he was always travelling well. I’ve lost my voice I shouted that much. We’ve always believed in him and I’m thrilled for everyone he’s gone and done it today. I hope the King George is next.” Bolger was much happier with the run of Trading Leather after he was beaten in a messy affair at the Newmarket Guineas meeting. He said: “I’m delighted with his effort after the Newmarket debacle. The winner wasn’t stopping, but he was happy where he was. We’ll look at the King George and later on the Arc and the Irish Champion Stakes.” Roger Varian, who had left it late before giving Kingston Hill the go-ahead, said: “Frankie (Dettori) thought he felt like a mile and a half horse who was running a very good race at a mile and a quarter. The ground was fine, I don’t think that was an excuse. All in all it’s not a win, but he has run another fine race. “At some point we are going to have to focus on his autumn campaign, that’s where his strengths will lie on the ground, but he’ll tell us where we need to go next.” The Fugue’s rider William Buick pointed firmly to ground conditions as a reason for her effort. He said: “The ground has become loose and she doesn’t like it, simple as that. It was that last shower. She ran well in defeat and she’ll be back.” last_img read more
