I jumped at it Mikmaw firefighter tackles the big blaze

first_img(Gary Falkenham at work in Nova Scotia. Photo: Angel Moore/APTN)Angel MooreAPTN News SaturdayGary Falkenham finishes putting his gear away in a tall green locker at a fire station in Sheet Harbour, Nova Scotia.For Falkenham, fighting wildfires is his dream job.“I was the first Mi’kmaw to be trained to fight wildfires,” he says. “If I could preach anything to anyone, it would be to get into it because it’s a good career choice.”When he started, he had no experience and trained for three months.Four days after his training finished, he was on a plane heading west, to the other side of the country – to fight a raging wildfire in British Columbia.“The hardest thing was leaving the kids, that was the first time I’ve been away from the kids since they were born,” Falkenham told APTN News.“My wife was 100 per cent supportive, she was the one who said to go, it would be a great experience. I got to spend 14 days in the woods fighting fires, it was phenomenal,” Falkenham says.Falkenham, 36, has six children and has lived his entire life on a small piece of reserve land in Sheet Harbour on the Atlantic Ocean east of Halifax.The land is administered by the band council in the Millbrook First Nation 90 km to the north.Falkenham says his community has given him a lot of support.Millbrook Chief Bob Gloade says Falkenham is admired in the community.“As representative of the community, it is both an honor and a privilege to have somebody step up help other people in need, especially when it comes to a major disaster like this, going across the country, not only putting his life on the line,” says Gloade.Before last spring, Falkenham was a carpenter and a lobster buyer.“For the last eight or nine years I was the middle man, I worked directly from the fisherman, bought lobster and transported them,” he says.It was a good job, but he wanted to be in the woods and protect the environment.Three years ago, Falkenham decided he wanted to fight wildfires with a group called the Sustained Action Team.“They are the ones that travel, they save the woods. That is the team you have to be on to be exported across Canada to fight fires. But, I did not have a whole lot of fire experience.”When the job came up to work for the Department of Lands and Forestry of Nova Scotia, he knew it was a good career.“I jumped at it, I love being in the outdoors, the wilderness, hunt, trap, fish, and this job came up that I could spend time in the woods and that would be a perfect fit for me,” he said.His perseverance paid off.(Falkenham, right, at work on the Burns Lake fire in British Columbia.)Last spring Falkenham started training. He says a big part of why he got the job was his carpentry skills.“When we are not fighting fires, we do a lot of maintenance around buildings, camps, and parks.”Falkenham is part of the Sustained Action Team of Nova Scotia, a group of 40 specially trained wildfire fighters.Each province has a team that are sent to wherever they are needed during the fire season which is from April to September.Falkenham says last year the team went to Alberta, Manitoba, and Ontario.This year, four days after Falkenham finished his training, his team was called to the wildfires in B.C.They joined about 300 to 400 firefighters at a camp near Burns Lake.“Everyone does 14 to 20 days, some just arriving, leaving, people from everywhere. I didn’t know what to expect but the guys I worked with were excellent,” he says.Moments later, his mother Shelley arrives at the station.She is sporting a big smile, and gives her son a bigger hug.She says she was glad he became a fireman, but was worried that he was sent to a fire right after training.“I was happy for him, but the day that he flew, and I got a message from my cousin in B.C.  and they saw him on the news, I thought wow, he is really there.”(Gary’s mother Shelley says she’s happy for him but it took a bit to realize that he was actually in B.C. battling wildfires. Photo: Angel Moore/APTN)Falkenham says he didn’t have time to be scared.He says they started working right away. The days were 14 to 17 hours long, and by the time they returned to the camp they would eat and go to sleep.“First couple of days, we were going to scout out areas, but I was a little nervous because I was still new, and my experience was out of the textbooks,” he says. “But in the end, we went and started fighting the fire and I was more comfortable with that.”They fought the fire on the ground and did a lot of structure protection – attacking fires that were encroaching on homes.In the end, they didn’t lose one house to the fire.“It is hard to tell if we made progress, you are fighting a smaller picture inside a big picture, but we kept the fire back from the houses.”On their last day, they stopped at a local A&W and Falkenham remembers a local man came up to them.“He shook our hands and thanked us for saving his house,” he says. “I could hear the emotion in his voice so that was pretty cool. Makes you feel good.”Shelley says she’s had a lot of positive responses about Gary.“Everyone is saying they are proud, and he is a hero I got a lot of positive messages, and locally, people will go up to him and say you are doing good out there.”His chief agrees.“He is a great young man and definitely a role model in our community,” says Gloade.The job of a wildfire fighter is seasonal, the fire season ends in September and begins again in April.This suits Falkenham just fine.He says this will give him time to be a dad.“My kids are in hockey. Our winters are wrapped up at the rink. My family is the most important thing in my life. I hope to be a good role model for them and my community,” he says.amoore@aptn.ca@angelharksenlast_img read more

Dhoni Captain Uncool

first_imgIt’s a rare feat and a rare sight too. Chennai Super Kings’ MS Dhoni achieved a major landmark on Thursday to become the first-ever captain in IPL cricket to win 100 matches. “The history of the world,” wrote Thomas Carlyle, “is but the biography of great men.” And if his ideas have been discredited since, in sport, at least, they’ve still some truth to them. For the rest of his life as captain of the Indian cricket team, Dhoni has led India to victory in the 2011 World Cup and the 2013 Champions Trophy. He is the man who brought himself on to bowl for four overs in the Champions Trophy semi‑final against Sri Lanka, took off his gloves so that he could better carry out a run-out off the last ball to beat Bangladesh in the World T20 meet. He is also the one to promote himself up to No. 5 in the order during the World Cup final in Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium though he had barely made a run all tournament long. Dhoni is the only cricketer who has been picked as one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people on the planet. His aggression, attitude and captaincy have shaped the entire landscape of the modern game. He is a winner, a great mentor, charming and humble as always. But his recent feat was marred by a long debate. An emotionally-charged Dhoni, who had just been dismissed after a stunning performance, stormed on to the ground from the Chennai Super Kings’ dugout and confronted the umpires on why they had failed to call an above-the-waist delivery from Rajasthan Royals’ Ben Stokes a no-ball. Dhoni argued that Ulhas Gandhe, the umpire standing at the bowler’s end, had raised his arm to signal a no-ball. But he quickly realised that it was not his call and reversed his decision after square leg umpire Bruce Oxenford considered it a legal delivery. Oxenford stood his ground and refused to go upstairs to the third umpire which was kind of unfair. Dhoni was furious at Gandhe for backtracking after initially signalling it as a no-ball. However, CSK eventually beat Rajasthan Royals by four wickets in a last-ball cliffhanger. Dhoni has been fined 50 per cent of his match fees for breaching the IPL Code of Conduct. With the pressure getting to him, MSD totally lost his cool and the world finally got a glimpse of ‘Uncool Dhoni’. Whoever the player is, he is definitely not bigger than the game. The decorated captain set the wrong precedence and considering his level of maturity and composure, he will surely realise that he shouldn’t have done it in the first place.last_img read more

Senior UN relief official visits Philippines to review humanitarian needs

Catherine Bragg, the Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator, will also meet with Government officials and humanitarian partners in the capital, Manila, to discuss how best to provide those in need with better protection and assistance.“At least 698,000 people continue to require humanitarian aid in central Mindanao,” said Ms. Bragg. “This includes those displaced, people who have returned home or resettled elsewhere, as well as other vulnerable groups in need of assistance.” UN humanitarian agencies and partners have this year appealed for $33.3 million to fund relief operations in Mindanao.

Womens Hockey No 5 Ohio State records first loss of season against

Ohio State then-freshman forward Emma Maltais (17) heads back out on the ice to start the second period of the game against Minnesota on Jan. 19. Ohio State won 3-2. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Managing Editor for DesignNo. 5 Ohio State (3-1) lost its first game of the season in the second game of the weekend series against No. 8 Colgate (2-2) by a score of 5-2.Ohio State head coach Nadine Muzerall said she saw a different team than the one that defeated the Raiders last night.“You don’t know why a team can play so dominant yesterday and the first 20 minutes of the first period and then disappear,” Muzerall said. “Against a good team like Colgate, they are going keep coming back at you, so you can’t wait until the third to try and win the hockey game.”Ohio State struck first less than eight minutes into the first period off a strike by sophomore forward Liz Scheppers to give the Buckeyes a 1-0 lead. Senior forward Madison Field and redshirt junior defenseman Jincy Dunne recorded assists on the goal. This assist was Dunne’s third on the season in only four games. Still early in the game, the Buckeyes extended their lead off a goal less than three minutes later when sophomore forward Tatum Skaggs scored her fourth goal of the season in as many games to make the score 2-0. Sophomore forward Emma Maltais received an assist on the play. However, momentum quickly shifted to Colgate as the game moved into the second period.Colgate struck back just 36 seconds into the second period to close the gap to 2-1 when freshman Nemo Neubauerova knocked a shot by freshman goaltender Andrea Braendli with an assist by senior defenseman Olivia Zafuto. Taking advantage of a power play, Colgate tied the game up at two all 5:10 into the second period off a power play goal by freshman forward Delani MacKay with assists by sophomore forward Malia Schneider and senior forward Jesse Eldridge.The domination of the second period by Colgate continued as a goal by senior forward Shae Labbe 14:59 into the second period gave Colgate the lead for the first time, 3-2. Senior forward Bailey Larson got an assist for the play. “It was unfortunate that we gave up in the second, which dominantly, we don’t,” Muzerall said. “We usually dominate the second period, so when we had such a great first period, I was very excited for the second knowing that we usually are in control of it, but Colgate came to win, and Saturday games are always tougher.”Throughout the entirety of the second period, Ohio State was held to just four shots on goal to Colgate’s 14. The Buckeyes outshot Colgate 19-8 in the first period. “I think our first period was great, but then Colgate came out flying in the second period,” Dunne said. “You got to give them credit, they are a national championship contender. They don’t quit, and they don’t give up. I think we were a little on our heels and they took advantage of that.”The Buckeyes continued to lose momentum, as with just 2:10 left in the third period, sophomore forward Coralie Larose added an insurance goal for Colgate to extend their lead to 4-2, marking the fourth goal that Braendli gave up. Larose was assisted by senior forward Bailey Larson and sophomore defenseman Shelby Wood.In Braendli’s first start of her collegiate career, she recorded 32 saves and gave up four goals. “If you look on the scoreboard, that doesn’t tell you everything if you watch the hockey game,” Muzerall said. “She couldn’t see two of the goals. We had way too much traffic and if we’re going to do that, we have to block it. The other two, you have to give Colgate credit. They scored four goals on us this weekend with that top shelf goal shot. Her angling was pretty good on both of them, they were just good shots.” Just over a minute later, senior forward Shae Labbe scored her second goal of the game with an empty net goal to make the score 5-2 and end all chances of an Ohio State comeback. “I don’t think you ever put yourself in a good position when you have to play desperate,” Dunne said. “We were given chances and we just got to capitalize. I think it’s opportunity for us to learn how to play when we’re down, and when we do need an extra goal, what do we need to do to get that.” read more

Death toll from Michael seen rising as Florida towns remain cut

Chris O’Meara/Pool via REUTERSMEXICO BEACH, Fla. (Reuters) – The death toll was expected to rise this weekend in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael as hundreds remained unaccounted for along the Florida Panhandle where decimated communities remained cutoff and in the dark.As of early on Saturday, state officials were reporting that at least 18 have been killed in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.Rescue teams, hampered by power and telephone outages, were going door-to-door and using cadaver dogs, drones and heavy equipment to hunt for people in the rubble in Mexico Beach and other Florida coastal communities, such as Port St. Joe and Panama City.“We still haven’t gotten into some of the hardest-hit areas,” said Brock Long, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on Friday, noting that he expects to see the number of people killed climb.The Houston-based volunteer search-and-rescue network CrowdSource Rescue said its teams were trying to find about 2,100 people either reported missing or stranded and in need of help in Florida, co-founder Matthew Marchetti said.Social media websites were crowded with messages from those trying to reach missing families in Florida’s Bay and Gulf Counties.Marchetti said his volunteer search teams, consisting mostly of off-duty police officers and firefighters, had rescued or accounted for 345 others previously reported to CrowdSource Rescue.Michael crashed ashore near Mexico Beach on Wednesday afternoon as one of the most powerful storms in U.S. history, with winds of up to 155 mph (250 kph). It pushed a wall of seawater inland, causing widespread flooding.The tropical storm, which grew in less than two days into a Category 4 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale, tore apart entire neighborhoods in the Panhandle, reducing homes to naked concrete foundations or piles of wood and siding.DOGS AND BULLDOZERSFEMA crews have been using bulldozers and other heavy equipment to push a path through debris so rescuers can sift the rubble using specially trained search dogs.More than 1,700 search and rescue workers have been deployed, Governor Rick Scott’s office said in a statement, including seven swift-water rescue teams and nearly 300 ambulances.Except for the emergency 911 system, authorities in Bay County, the epicenter of the disaster, were virtually without telephone or internet service until late on Friday, making communications internally and with the public difficult.Ruth Corley, a spokeswoman for the Bay County Sheriff’s Department, said local television stations were knocked off the air for two days, and authorities were relying on the Gulf State College radio station to transmit public service bulletins.By Friday morning the storm remnants were about 275 miles (445 km) southwest of Nantucket, Massachusetts, packing maximum sustained winds of 65 mph (100 kph).More than 940,000 homes and businesses on the U.S. East Coast were without power and it could be weeks before power is restored to the most damaged parts of Florida. read more

Barkley defends underfire Chelsea coach Sarri

first_imgRoss Barkley is confident that Chelsea will overcome their rough patch of form under Maurizio Sarri and become a success with time.The pressure on Sarri has reached a boiling point lately on the back of Chelsea’s recent results in the Premer League, which has seen suffer heavy defeats to both Bournemouth and Manchester City in the past month.Currently, the Blues are down in sixth-place in the standings and in danger of missing out on Champions League football for a second consecutive season.Today’s Carabao Cup final against City at Wembley is being viewed as one of the three key games Sarri has left to convince the Chelsea board to stick with him amid reports they’ve grown increasingly concerned by the club’s struggles.Speaking to reporters on Saturday, the former Napoli coach lamented the fact that he must deliver right now while “lucky” City counterpart Pep Guardiola was given all the time he needed.But Barkley is confident the team are adapting to Sarri’s footballing philosophy and urged the Chelsea board to give the Italian time.“He [Sarri] tries to improve every player. Throughout his career, you can see at Napoli how well he did with the players he had, how well he improved them,” said Barkley, according to The Telegraph.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“You can see on the training pitch a lot of things improving in each individual. We went through a bit of an up and down spell in the last couple of weeks, but we’re confident we’ll come through it and achieve success.“With each individual, everybody takes instructions in a different way. We’re all top-class players and we all want to learn more. With the manager, we’re learning on a day-to-day basis.“If you compare Pep Guardiola’s first season, they went through a bit of an up and down spell. When I was at Everton, we beat Manchester City 4-0.“The Premier League is the most competitive in the world. You can have an off day one day, a good game the other. It’s more repetition in training and results will come through.”The 25-year-old added: “We’ve got the ambition to be one of the best footballing sides in the world. We’re one of the biggest clubs in the world. The style of play the manager wants to play it’s not where it’s at right now. Over time it will come.”The English midfielder has managed five goals and assists in 36 appearances under Sarri at Chelsea this season.The Carabao Cup final between City and Chelsea will begin at 5:30 PM (CET) at Wembley today.BURNLEY, ENGLAND – OCTOBER 28: Ross Barkley of Chelsea celebrates scoring his teams second goal during the Premier League match between Burnley FC and Chelsea FC at Turf Moor on October 28, 2018 in Burnley, United Kingdom.

Past another wooden board with a runic symbol carved on it — it is customary to knock on this board — is a green clearing where visitors have tied ribbons around trees and placed eggs at their bases as a gift and left the dark remnants of a fire.“All that is brought there has to be eaten there or burned in the ritual fire,” said 28-year-old Tõnu Rehela, who has been a member of Estonia’s nature-oriented, neopagan Maausk community since he was 16. “Through the fire, the gods eat. Through the holy tree, the gods drink.”The board at the entrance to Tammealuse Hiis, a sacred grove in the forest near Samma, Estonia, on May 13, 2019. RNS photo by Aliide NaylorWhile pagan and folk religions may seem archaic to the wider world, they are thriving across the Baltic states. The Maausk community, along with Estonia’s other prominent neopagan group, the Taaraists, tripled in size from 2001 to 2011, the latest figures available from the national census. Meanwhile, a 2014 study from the University of Tartu indicated that 61% of Estonians believed that neopaganism was the “true” religion of Estonia.There is a similar situation in both Latvia and Lithuania.The increase in popularity is “mainly young people,” said Inija Trinkūnienė, the high priestess known as the “Krive” of Lithuania’s Romuva community.“More and more people are asking for us to (perform) wedding ceremonies. … They want to have their children blessed by the ancient traditions,” she said, adding this is true even of people who aren’t officially in the community. “People more and more are becoming aware of what they really are.”In 2001, only 1,200 people identified as Romuva, but, by 2011, about 5,100 did, according to online Baltic news portal Delfi.While Trinkūnienė performs rituals for births, marriages and deaths, they are still not acknowledged by the government. Official debates over their official recognition started in May 2018.People gather at the Lokstene Shrine, where Latvian neopagans hold ceremonies and annual celebrations, on May 6, 2017, in Pļaviņas Municipality, Latvia. RNS photo by Uģis Nastevičs“Wedding ceremonies are still not recognized by the state, but we are waiting for Parliament to make their final decision,” she said. “According to the law of religions in Lithuania — 25 years (after) our official registration, we can apply for getting a higher status.”Lithuania was the last nation in Europe to officially Christianize (1387), but it took much longer for the religion to take root. Under the Soviet Union, which occupied the Baltics after World War II until 1991, the native religions were suppressed along with nationalist sentiment.The Baltic states, lower right, on the western edge of Russia. Map courtesy of Creative CommonsStill, these religions lingered partly because fostering a connection to the land, old languages, old gods and tradition was a way of preserving a form of national identity and local memory in the face of an occupying power.“It was completely banned,” said Aldis Pūtelis, a researcher at the University of Latvia’s Institute of Literature, Folklore and Art. “It was the reaction to the perceived danger to perceived Latvianness. This whole movement was started as another way of strengthening it, and it was really popular among the exiled Latvians. Its main purpose was to strengthen the feeling of Latvian-ness.”The old religions also offered more than Christianity, according to proponents. “People say they seek such spirituality that is not available in other religions and a way of fostering Latvianness,” said Uģis Nastevičs, a spokesperson for Latvia’s Dievturība. “The community has been gradually growing over the last 10 years.
