A great winter sport without a big commitment of time or money.

Othe snow and the freezing temperature of the interiors may end some sports that define summer, but they open the door to many other sports and outdoor activities. One of them is arguably one of the most fun and beginner-friendly winter activities: Nordic skiing, aka cross-country skiing.

“Cross-country skiing is kind of the entrance to a lot of things in the winter because you can do it inexpensively and you can do it at your own pace,” says Mark Beattie, sales associate and technician at Fitness Fanatics. , a long-running local Nordic bike and ski shop in Millwood. “It gives you the sense of movement on poles, which then makes it easier to get into downhill skiing or other things.”

And it’s a gateway to a plethora of other winter sports, like snowshoeing or backcountry hiking. So, if you’re trying Nordic skiing and want to take up a faster or more controlled sport, you’ll already have learned some techniques that will make these other activities easier.

And unlike other types of skiing, which require steeper slopes or sloping areas to descend, you can Nordic ski almost anywhere. Beattie says the area offers groomed areas, like Mount Spokane or 49° North, which are great to start with because the trails are already groomed and don’t require you to go off the beaten path at all.

Farragut State Park near Athol, Idaho also has good, flatter trails that are good for beginners, he says. Some interior northwest golf courses also allow people to Nordic ski on their courses in the winter.

NOTski ordic does not require a big monetary or time commitment, says Beattie. “If I go to a ski resort and spend $90 or $100 on a lift ticket or $200 if you go to one of the big resorts, I’m going to be there from dawn till dusk,” says -he. “But I can cross-country ski and I can spend 45 minutes or two hours and really have fun, and I haven’t had to invest a huge amount of time or money.”

He also advises people to avoid overdressing, especially in the beginning, because you can get into almost anything as long as you have somewhere to go to change or dry off and warm up if you’re wet. The most savvy Nordic skiers advise dressing in layers and choosing materials that are breathable, moisture-wicking and wind-resistant, such as wool or polyester rather than cotton, down or Gore-tex, as well as to wear a hat, gloves and sunglasses.

“You assume that because it’s cold outside, you’re going to be cold, but because you’re moving and your body is working a bit, you’re producing a fair amount of heat,” says Beattie. “So you can carry a little extra clothing in a backpack, but you want to dress more lightly than expected the first time around.”

He says it’s a good idea to bring things like an extra pair of gloves in case you fall and get your original pair wet; also bring food and water with you, especially if you plan to be away for a long time. When you go somewhere you don’t know, carry a map or bring someone who knows.

Beattie says a major element of Nordic skiing that can make or break your experience is the quality – or poor – fit of your equipment.

“Boots have to fit. If they’re too big, you won’t have fun; if they’re too small, you won’t have fun,” he says. “And skis are based on your weight, so you might find a $10 pair of skis at a yard sale that aren’t the right size for you, and you won’t have fun because they won’t let you won’t go forward or let you stop, one or the other.”

Luckily, places like Fitness Fanatics offer services to help you choose the right equipment, and they have rental services so you can try Nordic skiing without committing to buying gear.

They also partner with Mount Spokane State Park to host a variety of group lessons and private lessons at Selkirk Lodge. The City of Spokane Parks and Recreation program also offers group classes and beginner classes.

“We have great instructors there, and they do a really good job of making it fun and making it something you want to come back and do again,” says Beattie. ♦

Comments on SFPD shutdowns gathered at Glide’s Police Free Community Meeting https://wvhgc.org/comments-on-sfpd-shutdowns-gathered-at-glides-police-free-community-meeting/ Thu, 27 Oct 2022 16:02:55 +0000 https://wvhgc.org/comments-on-sfpd-shutdowns-gathered-at-glides-police-free-community-meeting/ After some difficulty getting input from community members on a police policy regulating when officers can arrest a driver, a cop-free listening session at Glide Memorial Church on Wednesday night showed new promise and attracted about twenty residents.

After some difficulty getting input from community members on a police policy regulating when officers can arrest a driver, a cop-free listening session at Glide Memorial Church on Wednesday night showed new promise and attracted about twenty residents.

A woman wearing an ‘Unapologetically Black’ hoodie has described her ‘horrifying’ and ‘dehumanizing’ experience of being arrested with her partner, who was immediately asked by the officer whether he was on probation or parole. Because he was on probation, she said, officers were able to search the entire car.

The SFPD proposal New policyas written, would end these “fishing expeditions”, in which police can ask questions about probation status during a routine traffic stop.

Listening sessions like Wednesday’s are taking place as the police commission reviews a San Francisco Police Department blanket order prohibiting officers from arresting drivers for minor violations. So-called pretext stops — in which officers use a low-level offense as an excuse to find evidence of criminal activity — disproportionately affect communities of color.

Sheryl Davis, director of the Human Rights Commission, told Mission Local in a recent interview that community participation has been low, which is why her team extended the month-long listening sessions to a second month and continues to add more sessions.

During Wednesday’s session, participants from Glide and the wider community discussed their lived experiences with traffic police.

As a church choir blared in the background, an incarcerated former attendee said his encounters with police generally go well as he keeps his hands on his steering wheel at all times, has his license and registration ready in his hand before the officer approaches, and repeatedly insists that “from now on, I remain silent”.

Many do not realize that refusal is within their rights. And even if they do, encounters with the police can quickly go sour. As things stand now, once an officer learns that a person is on probation or parole, they can search that person without a warrant. This is something the new policy seeks to discourage.

Meanwhile, he expects the price of oil to drop from US$108 per barrel to US$100 per barrel and the price of LNG to fall from US$934 per tonne to $630 per tonne.

According to the documents, “the budget assumes that the slip trajectories for iron ore, metallurgical coal and thermal coal start from their recent averages in late September, and decline over the December 2022 and March 2023 quarters until at their assumed long-term fundamental price levels”.

Yet he acknowledges that there are disparate forces at play.

“In light of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, there is substantial upside risk to thermal coal and LNG price assumptions, while China’s weakening growth outlook poses downside risk. the drop in commodity prices, especially iron ore.”

The treasury too highlights the impact of commodity price movements on the Australian economy.

For example, if commodity prices were to remain high in the last three months of 2022 and then decline in the first half of 2023, this would increase nominal GDP by $43.8 billion – $35 billion in 2022-23 and $8.8 billion in 2023-24.

Government tax revenues would also be increased by $9.9 billion – $2.5 billion in 2022-23, $6.5 billion in 2023-24 and $0.9 billion in 2024-25 (l delayed impact on tax revenue reflects delays in tax collection).

The budget projects a 1% increase in mining exports in 2021-22, due to temporary production disruptions including wet weather, operational disruptions and maintenance.

Mining export growth is then expected to rebound to 5% in 2022-23 as production disruptions ease and production increases at new iron ore mines, including BHP’s South Flank projects, Gudai Darri from Rio Tinto and Eliwana from Fortescue Metal.

Mining export growth is then expected to decline to 2.5% in 2023-24, reflecting a slowdown in production capacity growth.

Mining investment is expected to increase by 0.5% in 2021-2022, before jumping to 9.5% in 2022-23, then falling back to 1.5% in 2023-24.

The budget indicates that while investments in iron ore continue, they are primarily aimed at maintaining production capacity. At the same time, LNG investments are expected to increase in the coming months as construction work begins on recently announced projects.

Roller skaters slide gruesomely at Halloween-themed rink party – NBC Los Angeles https://wvhgc.org/roller-skaters-slide-gruesomely-at-halloween-themed-rink-party-nbc-los-angeles/ Tue, 25 Oct 2022 01:52:17 +0000 https://wvhgc.org/roller-skaters-slide-gruesomely-at-halloween-themed-rink-party-nbc-los-angeles/ What there is to know Moonlight Rollerway at 5110 San Fernando Road in Glendale The Halloween-themed skating party for all ages takes place on Sunday, October 30 from 8-11 p.m. $19 general admission; $7 skate rental Roller skating has a lot in common with Halloween, and we don’t even have to go too far, or […]]]>

What there is to know

  • Moonlight Rollerway at 5110 San Fernando Road in Glendale
  • The Halloween-themed skating party for all ages takes place on Sunday, October 30 from 8-11 p.m.
  • $19 general admission; $7 skate rental

Roller skating has a lot in common with Halloween, and we don’t even have to go too far, or perform too many complicated figure eights or scissor maneuvers, to come to that conclusion.

suit ? The popular recreational activity and the weird October holiday are both super awesome, and by “snazz it up” we mean sparkly socks, colorful tops, and the like.

Candy? You’ll find a candy zone at the snack counter of a classic roller rink, just like you’ll find festive candy in a pumpkin-shaped bucket after a series of tricks.

And orange? Well, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but slide with us: the wheels and orange bumper of a classic rental skate are still reminiscent of the classic Halloween color.

So when the vibes of wicked, whimsical occasion mingle with a special night of roller skating, we’re in for a spooky ride. And that’s exactly what will happen, or perhaps “askate” is more appropriate, at Moonlight Rollerway on the eve of Halloween.

That’s right: it doesn’t happen on Halloween night but rather on October 30, the Sunday just before the haunting holiday.

Guests at Destination Glendale can enjoy three hours of monstrously cheerful music and, yes, the costumes are fine (but read up on the ruleslike that anything you wear “shouldn’t interfere with vision or skates”.)

The Halloween themed skate party may feature some of the Halloween inspired melodies that you love the most or you may discover a cool and spooky song that you love. That’s the beauty of those seasonal hits that come back every year: some you know by heart and others that suddenly capture your fancy for the first time.

General admission is $19, and if you need skates, you can rent them “at the door” for seven dollars.

Add to the festive air?

October is National Roller Skating Month, so strap on your favorite boots for a shake-up session at one of the world’s best-known ice rinks, it’s the perfect way to commemorate it.

And Moonlight Rollerway, which crept into our skate-obsessed worlds more than six decades ago, truly deserves the title of “one of the world’s best-known skating rinks” as it regularly appears on television and in the movies, making him a skating star. for the ages.

Gotham Knights brings open-world superhero action to modern consoles and pc. With four varied heroes to use, this action RPG offers many progression mechanics. These include heroic traversal abilities, each unique to the chosen playable character. Moreover, it allows players to quickly navigate the world of Gotham City.


Batgirl’s Glide Cape in Gotham Knights Will Look Familiar to Batman Fans

The only way to unlock Batgirl’s Glider ability is to complete Knighthood missions. This includes completing a series of activities. Unlike leveling up, it does not apply to all characters. Players must therefore complete the Knighthood quest four times, once for each of the four characters: Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing and Red Hood.

Knighthood includes the following prerequisites:

  • Complete the Timed Strike formation
  • Stop 10 premeditated crimes
  • Defeat 3 mini-bosses

The first, Timed Strike, can be easily completed with the least amount of effort. Simply visit the training arena marked with a training dummy in the Belfry. Here, select Timed Strike from the Advanced Training section. Quickly skim through the session to complete the first part of becoming a knight.

The next two activities will take place outdoors in the open world of Gotham Knights. As players explore, they will come across a variety of events to engage in.

These include cavalcades of enemies that can also house minibosses. These enemies are tanky and require some level of strategy to take down. This is the second least troublesome aspect to complete.

Finally, premeditated crimes require jumping through a few hoops. Essentially, players will need to gather information on possible future crimes. These are dropped by defeated enemies and can be transmitted to Belfry’s computer to reveal their locations.

Alternatively, players can interrogate henchmen to learn more about them. Whichever method you choose, these premeditated crimes are more important than traditional enemy encounters and incite you to undertake set objectives, including fighting enemies.

Once all the objectives have been completed, return to Belfry. Visit Batman’s Sanctuary as Batgirl to trigger a cutscene, after which she can use her Glide ability. It works quite similar to Batman’s gliding mechanic in the Batman Arkham series.

This will allow him to quickly traverse the open world. Considering the plethora of sectors and districts present in Gotham City, this ability is quite useful.

So far, Gotham Knights has been criticized for being generic and repetitive. The tedious nature of its resource gathering and activities does not help alleviate player fatigue. Unfortunately, these Knighthood missions exacerbate things because you’re forced to repeat the same monotonous gameplay dozens of times.

Gotham Knights is developed by WB Games Montreal and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. It is available on computer, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Discover our exam game to find out more.

45 Years Ago Today – Revisiting Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Tragically Triumphant ‘Street Survivors’ https://wvhgc.org/45-years-ago-today-revisiting-lynyrd-skynyrds-tragically-triumphant-street-survivors/ Wed, 19 Oct 2022 20:45:00 +0000 https://wvhgc.org/45-years-ago-today-revisiting-lynyrd-skynyrds-tragically-triumphant-street-survivors/ Despite the pretentious cover graphics, Lynyrd Skynyrd isn’t much of a different band on Street survivors (released 10/17/77) than that of their debut album four (tumultuous) years earlier.

Despite the pretentious cover graphics, Lynyrd Skynyrd isn’t much of a different band on Street survivors (released 10/17/77) than that of their debut album four (tumultuous) years earlier. And it’s not so much the number seven in training as the staff themselves: as the revealing bio-photo tells Gone with the Wind: The Remarkable Rise and Fall of Lynyrd Skynyrdoriginal guitarist Ed King had left in 1975 (returning from 1987 to 1996), eventually being replaced by rookie guitarist and songwriter Steve Gaines.

Based on four and a half decades of hindsight (plus the bountiful contents of a two-CD Deluxe Edition of this fifth effort from studio Skynyrd), the repercussions resulting from the aforementioned former member of the Strawberry Alarm Clock’s exit have ​were as significant as the Dixie rockers’ severing relationship with former mentor/producer Al Kooper (he knew Dylan, Blood Sweat & Tears and Super Session).

A group so naturally inclined to go their own way found themselves in the midst of circumstances compelling them to do just that. Accordingly, the approximately thirty-five minutes that make up the album released in 1977 are a compendium of two separate recording efforts. The protracted process, including early work with famed producer Tom Dowd (Clapton, ABB, among others), and subsequent independent recording and production, ultimately led to the final result(s). ) that Ronnie Van Zant and company hoped for.

In this respect, while King’s studio and arranging expertise was undoubtedly sorely lacking, Skynyrd managed to transcend flippant provincial labels as well as the somewhat undue influence of UK great band Free (whose they shared admiration with Kooper). And it’s more than the two extra numbers on the aforementioned reissue that prove the group’s deliberate direction: the last-minute addition of “One More Time” comes from Lynyrd Skynyrd’s 1971 Muscle Shoals demo, further reaffirming the distinction of this group as rock and tread.

This carefully arranged majestic semi-ballad is emotionally as complex as Gaines’ “I Know A Little” is flippant. The latter’s boogie in numbers suggests that more covers like this one of Merle Haggard’s “Honky Tonk Night Time Man” might have populated the long-player better, but only at the risk of sounding too “southern” for them. themselves. good (as suggested by the periodic use of a giant Confederate flag as a backdrop).

The newly enlisted Oklahoman’s tune isn’t so far off from lead singer Ronnie Van Zant’s cautionary tale of “That Smell” (a slower, longer rendition than the one eventually released appears on this expanded package). The autobiographical honesty of the new recruit’s “Ain’t No Good Life” solo authorship is worthy of his other co-writings with the singer on “You Got That Right” and “I Never Dreamed.”

Meanwhile, Gaines’ touch work is also not to be overlooked. As captured on the older track (and live cuts on the double set), it’s a distinctly fluid instrumental style that both complements and contrasts that of his new guitar partners Allen Collins and Gary Rossington. . And in this sense, “I Never Dreamed” represents a real departure for the band, especially after the dominated riff give me back my balls (particularly produced by Dowd). Van Zant has clearly become more nuanced as a vocalist, while the integration of acoustic guitar and organ prevents stylistic stasis even with the multiple electric guitar breaks; A more extensive inclusion of such interludes would presumably make the track comparable to Skynyrd’s signature song “Freebird”.

Three days after the release of Street survivors, the plane chartered by the group crashed en route to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, killing the pilot, co-pilot, assistant route manager of the group and three members of the group – Van Zant, Gaines and the older sister of Gaines, backup vocalist Cassie Gaines (who had recommended him to the band on King’s departure). Most of those who survived the crash were seriously injured, including Rossington and Collins (who later formed a band under both of their names).

At the request of the family, the original work representing the fanfare in flames was quickly replaced by a group portrait of the septet represented on a black background for a completely funereal effect. Intentional or not, the image may well symbolize the long-term activity of ensembles recording and performing as Lynyrd Skynyrd a decade after the tragedy.

The posthumous success of Street survivors was an idea of ​​the support that fostered the existence of the reconfigured unit throughout the farewell roadworks: dubbed ”Big Wheels Keep On Turnin” a tour that began in 2018 and now extends through 2023.

The Southern men who once excoriated (then befriended) Neil Young continued to thrive as Street survivors ultimately suggests that it would. Lynyrd Skynyrd was on the verge of reinvigoration at this point, thanks not only to Gaines’ presence but also to their own innate persistence in solving the internal issues that had plagued the group just prior to enlistment.

The cruelty of the tragedy that afflicted the band nearly half a century ago, however, has not deterred the loyalty of the surviving members to the legacy or that of its still staunch supporters.

The Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) rose 36 cents to 1,271 c/kg clean for a much reduced volume of 32,107 bales, while the Western Market Indicator (WMI) gained 44 cents at 1,407 c/kg clean.

Earnings were typically between 30 and 80 cents on top ranges of merino wool across the three outlets, according to Australian Wool Innovation (AWI).

Greater activity among the usual list of buyers pushed prices up and reversed their downward trend for the first time in three months at Australian wool auctions this week. The Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) rose 36 cents to 1271c/clean kg on a much reduced volume of 32,107 bales, while the Western Market Indicator (WMI) gained 44 cents to 1407c/clean kg.

Such volatility does not inspire confidence for those operating in the trade,” the AWI commentary added.

Nevertheless, marginal gains in national terms were also seen for larger wools with increases of up to 20 cents, while prices for merino carding remained relatively stable.

The Yukon government is monitoring a stretch of the North Klondike Highway near Dawson City where a series of at least 10 landslides occurred in September.

As the New Reported landslides triggered by heavy rain caused the road to be closed and trapped up to 40 travelers between the two areas of fallen debris along the road.

The highway is the main artery between Dawson City and Whitehorse. The road has since been fully reopened with no time restrictions.

The cost of the repairs remains to be determined, according to the Department of Highways and Public Works.

Jim Regimbal is the Northern Area Superintendent of the Department’s Transportation Maintenance Branch.

In an interview on October 6, Regimbal provided insight into the monitoring that takes place in landslide areas.

“There was little to no movement, especially with the cooling temperatures,” he said.

He said engineers had visited the site about three times to check the four monitoring devices in the two landslide areas.

The equipment senses ground and air temperatures to give an indication of slope movement. A geologist collects data to get accurate readings of how the slope moves at different temperatures.

“This way we can better develop a plan together with the geologists [and] it’s up to the other engineers to put the right plan in place to mitigate what’s happening,” he said.

Regimbal said the ground is not moving like it used to be now that cooler temperatures are setting in.

“The permafrost has loosened up, and as the weather gets colder it’s slowing down,” he said.

“We hope that the likelihood of landslide occurring in cooler temperatures will be minimized.”

Regimbal said the results will help predict the likelihood of another landslide and better understand how these types of sites behave after a major landslide event.

He said people who depend on the road for transport and access to goods and services should not worry too much about the potential for more landslides, despite the inevitability of more landslides due to the impact of climate change.

“I don’t think they have to worry about them because we’re watching them,” he said.

“They’re going to happen because Mother Nature gave us fires and removed a lot of vegetation that would prevent mud and debris from sliding down, so we opened those doors.”

Regimbal said the possibility of him descending and crossing the road is “minimal”.

“However, he is still there,” he said.

He said geologists, engineers and other professionals strive to be more proactive than reactive. This could mean relying on monitoring indicators to make decisions on whether to close one lane or both lanes of the freeway for a certain period of time depending on levels of movement.

The Government of Yukon recently issued a request for proposals for consulting services to undertake a full-scale climate vulnerability and geohazard mapping study for the Yukon highway system.

“Moving forward, we need that expertise from the professionals so that we don’t impulsively put in place something that we shouldn’t do because it could potentially be more of a safety hazard than helping. really the condition,” Regimbal said.

The Glide School District is responding following a chief inspection of the district’s former college building.

A statement from Superintendent Patrick Mayer said the Archie Creek Fire in the fall of 2020 caused significant damage to homes and other structures in the Glide community. The Federal Emergency Management Agency got involved and made resources available to Glide residents. Glide Revitalization, a local non-profit organization, took on the task of distributing FEMA resources to Glide residents. The group needed a space to coordinate their work and approached the school district to rent the old college building, which was not being used for instruction at that time. The district agreed and entered into a lease with the organization. In exchange for using the building, Glide Revitalization agreed to work on updating the old school building.

The district release says the task of distributing FEMA funds is now complete, but Glide Revitalization has sought to develop a new use for the old college building – a daycare center. Earlier this year, the district heard about the idea for the organization. Due to the age of the structure, the district was concerned about the safety of the building for children. The district paid to have the building inspected and tested for lead.

At the beginning of September, the district received the results of this inspection. Tests showed unacceptable levels of lead in some of the paint samples collected. The report also described evidence indicating that lead paint was likely disturbed during renovation activities, presenting a potential concern for lead exposure from lead paint dust.

The statement said the district informed Glide Revitalization of the district’s concerns. The two organizations are not involved in litigation. However, the district continues to have serious concerns about the proposed use of the building as a child care center. The neighborhood is considering its options.

Mayer concluded by saying the district wants to assure Glide residents that it will not allow children into the old college building until it is safe to do so, and will address any legal issues that arise if necessary.

  • Bright lights and blue flashes could be seen for 40 minutes in northeast Bradford in 2010.
  • On March 4, 2003, three shocked campers reported seeing a boomerang-shaped craft—for about 20 seconds—over Haworth.
  • Haworth was the site of another sighting on April 17, 2008. A faint white light was observed, followed by a brighter silver “ball” – moving slowly at first. They were visible for about three minutes.
  • At Keighley, a sphere was spotted for several seconds on April 27, 2004. The observer said: “Looking at the moon, I saw a distinct round ball-shaped object gliding past the bright moon. I could not follow the object.
  • A sphere was also seen above Keighley – for about ten minutes – on October 8, 2007.
  • On December 19, 2019, more than 30 lights were seen streaking across the sky above Keighley – in a perfect line – for around five minutes. But the UFO reporting center potentially attributed this to satellites.

According to the data, Yorkshire is the second most prolific region in the UK for UFO activity – with a total of 152 sightings.

Only London beats it, with 256 reports.

Third behind Yorkshire is the West Midlands, where 136 sightings have been recorded.

On the European stage, England leads the rankings in sightings – with 2,678, each averaging 13.32 minutes in length. The recordings are mostly inexplicable bright lights.

Joyce Olsen of PsychicWorld.com told us, “UFOs, or Unidentified Flying Objects, have been around for centuries.

“With sightings dating back to ancient times, humans have always been fascinated by the thought of otherworldly lifeforms. While explanations for strange occurrences in the sky may be more explainable now than they seem. were in the past, some events are more difficult to unpack.

“And while Hollywood may have us believe that aliens and UFOs are attracted to desolate, uninhabited landscapes, many UFO hotspots around the world are in towns and cities, as this data shows. .

“Whether you think the strange lights you spot in the night sky are due to extraterrestrial visitors, or you’re more likely to attribute it to a meteor or satellite, UFOs that lack a simple explanation open up a universe of possibilities.

“And, although there is still no definitive answer as to whether extraterrestrial life forms are roaming the skies, the high concentration of unexplained UFOs in the UK certainly offers the possibility that there is something more there.”

It’s suspected the official data doesn’t show the full picture either, as many other people – over the years – have spoken of seeing strange objects in the sky over the Bradford district.

In 2007, there was a flurry of reports of people seeing bright lights and “balls of fire” above the city.

One person feared witnessing an “Independence Day” style event, a reference to the sci-fi movie that features an attack by an alien race.

And in 2013, a mysterious ball of light was seen in the night sky above Cross Roads.
