US Coast Guard Responds to Sinking Fishing Vessel Outside Gloucester Harbor

first_img View post tag: vessel View post tag: Gloucester View post tag: News by topic A fisherman was rescued from a sinking 35-foot commercial fishing vessel Thursday just outside of Gloucester Harbor after the boat began taking on water.U.S. Coast Guard Sector Boston was notified at 8:23 a.m. that the fishing vessel Little Hunter was taking on water near Eastern Point in Gloucester Harbor. Coast Guard personnel from Station Gloucester launched a 25-foot Response Boat – Small and arrived at the sinking vessel at 8:33 a.m. Once on scene, rescue crews asked the operator to put on his lifejacket as they began to set up a pump to try and dewater the fishing vessel.A Good Samaritan also responded to the sinking vessel and took the fisherman aboard just before the Little Hunter sank. The Little Hunter had approximately 40 gallons of diesel fuel on board, and Coast Guard personnel are monitoring the area because of the spill caused by the sinking.The cause of the sinking is under investigation.As with any industry on the water, commercial fishing can be a dangerous occupation. Safety and survival gear that were aboard the Little Hunter allowed the operator to summon assistance. The marine band radio, lifejacket and the Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon assisted the fisherman in notifying the Coast Guard and ensured no one was seriously injured.“I am very proud of the way the crews conducted themselves, and I am very glad that everyone made it home safely,” said Chief Warrant Officer Luis Munoz, Station Gloucester’s commanding officer.“We aren’t just Coast Guardsmen,” said Munoz. “We’re members of this community and our most important goal is to ensure the safety of our crews, the commercial fishermen, and all boaters.”The owner of the Little Hunter is arranging for commercial salvage to raise the vessel for repairs.[mappress]Source: U.S. Coast Guard, August 5, 2011; View post tag: coast View post tag: US View post tag: harbor US Coast Guard Responds to Sinking Fishing Vessel Outside Gloucester Harbor View post tag: fishing View post tag: Navalcenter_img View post tag: outside August 5, 2011 View post tag: Guard View post tag: Responds View post tag: Sinking Back to overview,Home naval-today US Coast Guard Responds to Sinking Fishing Vessel Outside Gloucester Harbor Share this article View post tag: Navylast_img read more

Wuhan next-of-kin accuse China of blocking COVID lawsuits

first_imgWuhan pensioner Zhong Hanneng endured every parent’s worst nightmare when coronavirus claimed her son in February, and — alongside other bereaved relatives — she wants to sue the local government she blames for his death.But they have had their lawsuits abruptly rejected, dozens of others face pressure from authorities not to file, and lawyers are being warned against helping them, according to people involved in the effort.The families accuse the Wuhan and Hubei provincial governments of concealing the outbreak when it first emerged there late last year, failing to alert the public, and bungling the response, allowing COVID-19 to explode out of control. Topics : Plaintiffs are each seeking around two million yuan ($295,000) in damages and a public apology.But the court has rejected suits on unspecified procedural grounds, said Yang Zhanqing, a veteran Chinese activist now in the US.Yang, who is coordinating two dozen lawyers in China who are secretly advising families, said the rejections have come via curt phone calls — not through official written explanations, as legally required — apparently to avoid a paper trail.Staff at the Wuhan court refused AFP requests for comment. It has killed nearly 3,900 in the city and over 900,000 globally so far.”They say the epidemic was a natural calamity. But these serious outcomes are man-made, and you need to find who’s to blame,” said Zhong, 67.”Our family is shattered. I can never be happy again.”At least five lawsuits have been filed with the Wuhan Intermediate Court, said Zhang Hai, whose elderly father died of the virus and who has emerged as a vocal advocate and spokesman for families of virus victims.center_img Stonewalling The virus emerged in Wuhan last December but city authorities initially dragged their feet, pressuring whistle-blowing doctors to keep quiet.The Communist Party continues to downplay responsibility, even questioning whether the pathogen originated in China, while trumpeting its later success in suppressing domestic infections.It held a grand ceremony in Beijing last week, where President Xi Jinping declared the nation had passed an “extraordinary and historic test” through a swift and transparent response.But Zhong tells a different story.By late January, the contagion was spreading rapidly in Wuhan, but officials had still issued no citywide alarm.With the extended Lunar New Year festival approaching, Zhong and her son Peng Yi — a 39-year-old primary schoolteacher — happily shopped at jam-packed stores. Millions of others left Wuhan for the holiday, taking the infection global.”We had no idea the buses were full of the virus… So we went out every day. We didn’t even know about masks,” Zhong told AFP.On January 24, as Wuhan finally began locking down, she and Peng fell ill. She soon recovered, but he worsened.Fear gripped their household, which included Zhong’s husband, Peng’s wife, and his seven-year-old daughter.For the next two agonizing weeks, they spent long hours in overwhelmed hospitals begging to get him admitted, but without a positive result — and with testing kits scarce — he was repeatedly turned away.Peng was finally hospitalized Feb. 6.His family never saw him alive again. He died on a respirator two weeks later.”He must have been so scared, so unhappy, with no family around. I can’t imagine how sad he was,” said Zhong, breaking down repeatedly.”Did he call out ‘Mother’? ‘Father’? I don’t know.” Never give up Zhang Hai believes his father was infected at a Wuhan hospital during treatment for an unrelated ailment.He says authorities are waging a campaign to discredit him, suspending his social media accounts and circulating disinformation that the legal efforts are a scam to bilk families.Others also have reported official intimidation, and next-of-kin chat groups have been infiltrated by police, Zhang alleged, blaming Wuhan’s government.”They know if I succeed in filing a case, many other families will sue, too,” he said.Wuhan’s government did not respond to AFP’s requests for comment.Zhang said dozens of bereaved relatives have coalesced in chat groups, but most are fearful of taking action.With his initial suit in Wuhan rejected, Zhang filed recently with a higher, provincial-level court. Zhong, the elderly pensioner, plans the same.Yang, the US-based activist, believes it “very likely” the government will quietly meet some families’ demands eventually, though a public apology is inconceivable.Until then, Zhang intends to appeal all the way to China’s highest court in Beijing, regardless of the personal risks.”My father is my motivation,” he said. last_img read more

McCatty: Refs to blame for basketball foul up

first_imgVeteran basketball official, Howard McCatty, has agreed with the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association’s (ISSA) competition’s director, George Forbes, that the referees are to blame for the incident which forced game one of the ISSA Southern Conference under-19 basketball final to be ruled null and void and ordered replayed.McCatty, a former basketball president and currently a referees’ trainer and technical commissioner, said the match officials erred by not ensuring that the teams were checked, even though others are sometimes assigned to fulfil this task.”They (referees) should have checked the identification cards before the game started. But, here in Kingston, we usually have someone checking it, and they (refs) thought it was checked by the table,” he explained.CHECKING ID’S”But I would put the blame on the referees because a technical commissioner should be at the table to check all IDs. In Northern (Conference), I check all IDs before the games starts,” he added.Calabar won game one of the series, only for Camperdown to launch a protest against their opponents for not having their IDs available for the game.However, ISSA investigations revealed that Calabar had no IDs. Camperdown did not have their full complement either and, as a result, a replay was ordered. Forbes blamed the match officials for not upholding the rules.”Our rules are quite simple, and that is you must have an ISSA-issued ID. The referees are the ones causing the problem. How do they know that a player has an ID? If I am the referee and I know you and I say you can play, that does not mean you satisfy the criteria,” Forbes said recently.McCatty admitted that sometimes schools have ID issues when they come to games, and insists that once it can be verified that a player is legitimate, they try to accommodate the schools as best as they can. However, he says next season, there will be no room for such leniency with the regulations.last_img read more

After a holding the No. 1 Florida Gators scoreless earlier on Sunday, the Cowgirls ran out of steam to the tune of a 5-0 loss. Florida wins the Gainesville Regional and will host a Super Regional against the winner of the Tuscaloosa Regional.After being held scoreless in the first game of the day, Florida’s Nicole Dewitt opened the game with a two-run homer in the 1st. After runs in the 2nd and the 3rd innings, the Gators built a 4-0 lead through four innings and the Cowgirls were never able to get their bats going — thanks in part to Florida’s ace Delanie Gourney.On the other side, Florida’s early hitting necessitated two pitching changes by the 2nd inning. Shea Coats and Logan Simunek each had their shot before Kenny Gajewski went back to Brandi Needham who pitched seven innings earlier in the day.Oklahoma State ends their season 38-25 and makes postseason play in both of Gajewski’s first two season as head coach.“Going to the postseason consecutive years just means we have a lot of kids bought in,” head coach Kenny Gajewski said. ” That’s the bottom line.

Arsenal advance despite Ostersund setback

first_imgArsenal 1 Ostersunds 2 (4-2 agg): Gunners through despite Emirates shock Joe Wright Last updated 1 year ago 05:56 23/2/2018 ken sema - cropped Getty Images Arsenal were beaten at home by Ostersunds but their first-leg win was enough to see them reach the Europa League last 16 on aggregate. Arsenal survived a huge scare to keep their Europa League campaign alive, progressing to the last 16 with a 4-2 aggregate win over Ostersunds despite a 2-1 loss at home on Thursday.The Gunners cruised to a 3-0 win in the first leg in Sweden last week but found themselves 2-0 down at half-time of the return fixture at the Emirates Stadium.A strike from Sead Kolasinac early in the second half eased some of the nerves in north London, though, and ensured their place in Friday’s draw for the last 16.

Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Ostersunds, who were only founded in October 1996, after Arsene Wenger had been appointed Arsenal manager, were fearless in their approach and sent the visiting fans into raptures when Calum Chambers’ own goal and Ken Sema’s strike put them 2-0 up in the space of 70 seconds in the first half.A Gunners team including Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck offered little by way of a response until the second minute of the second half, when Kolasinac lashed home from close range.Graham Potter’s visitors could not find the two goals they needed to complete a shock turnaround, but the performance will have given Wenger plenty to consider ahead of the EFL Cup final against Manchester City in three days’ time.6 – Arsenal have conceded in each of their last six games at the Emirates in all competitions; their longest run without a clean sheet there since April 2014 (seven consecutive games). Woes. pic.twitter.com/ESv5NmGM97— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) February 22, 2018Arsenal, no doubt with one eye on Sunday’s showdown at Wembley, made little effort to add to their aggregate lead during the early stages in front of a sparse home crowd.Ostersunds sensed the hosts’ complacency and Hosam Aiesh stunned the Emirates 22 minutes in, latching onto Saman Ghoddos’ long ball in behind Kolasinac and firing across David Ospina, with Chambers deflecting the effort into the net.Before the visiting fans had even finished celebrating, Sema capitalised on more slack defending from Arsenal, leaving Chambers for dead with a clever drag-back before rifling the ball into the bottom-right corner from the left of the penalty area.70 – There were just 70 seconds between Östersunds’ first and second goals at the Emirates. Unfazed. pic.twitter.com/PJqkveZv4x— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) February 22, 2018Arsenal responded with a spell of possession but offered very little going forward, with a flicked header from Danny Welbeck, which was comfortably held by goalkeeper Aly Keita, the closest they came to a goal back in the first half.However, 90 seconds after the break, they eased some of the anxiety around the Emirates. Full-back Ronald Mukiibi swiped at Hector Bellerin’s cross and missed, allowing Kolasinac to take a touch before smashing the ball into the net from 12 yards out.Arsenal began to look a little more relaxed, with Mohamed Elneny and Danny Welbeck each denied by good saves from Keita, but Ostersunds looked a threat until the end and the Gunners will have to improve significantly if they are to claim the first major trophy of the English season this weekend. Key Opta stats:- Despite progressing into the next round, Arsenal have now lost each of their last six home games in the knockout rounds of European competition.- Graham Potter is just the sixth English manager to win at the Emirates in all competitions (after Alan Curbishley, Phil Brown, Harry Redknapp, Michael Appleton and Garry Monk), but the first to do so in European competition.- Arsenal’s defenders have contributed 20 goals in all competitions this season, the most of any Premier League side (Chelsea 16, Man City 10).- The Gunners have conceded in each of their last six at the Emirates in all competitions; their longest run without a clean sheet there since May 2014 (seven consecutive games).- Ostersunds are the first Swedish side to win an away European match in England since Osters IF beat Tottenham in the 1995 Intertoto Cup.- Arsenal have scored nine own goals since Calum Chambers debuted for them in August 2014, while he has been responsible for 33 per cent of them (3 of 9). read morelast_img read more

Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp And Vidic — who won the Champions League and five Premier League trophies during his eight years in Manchester — feels United are equipped to succeed in Europe.”It’s Man United. I know the Premier League is bigger, but I think the Champions League could happen,” Vidic said via ESPN.”When the season started, I said that I thought United had more chance to win the Champions League than the Premier League because the players they signed didn’t have the time to fit in.”Also, Mourinho is a tactical coach, knows Europe very well. He knows there are going to be scrappy games and how to get through them.”That’s my belief. To win, you need a bit of luck, but there is a chance to get to the semi-final or final. You never know. And if you win a Champions League, the players start to believe. They think: ‘OK, speak about me now.’ Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, they will look different than now.”Vidic, who said he wants to become a manager, was speaking ahead of United’s showdown with rivals Liverpool in the Premier League Saturday.United are second and two points clear of Liverpool, and Mourinho’s side can extend that gap with victory at the Theatre of Dreams.Previewing the mouth-watering clash, former Serbia international and United favourite Vidic again spoke about how he almost joined Liverpool before moving to Manchester in 2006.”In Rafael Benitez’s time. I spoke to him about a few things, but my wife was the main one who spoke to him,” the 36-year-old added. “He was interested in signing me, but I don’t know what was the problem at the time. I spoke to him before I signed for Manchester United, though. I didn’t meet, but we spoke over the phone, in my car in Moscow, with my wife translating.”I didn’t say no. They said just that they were interested, they want me. It was going to happen, going to happen. Then someone came and said: ‘Do you want to play for United?’ and I said yes. After two days, everything was done. Then Liverpool said they wanted to do the deal, but everything was done.”last_img read more

Looking Back at the 2012 Fiesta Bowl: Wide Left

first_imgThis has been a lot of fun thus far. We enter the fourth quarter of the Fiesta Bowl with Oklahoma State trailing Stanford 28-24. Here are some links if you need to catch up.Part 1Part 2Part 3• Stanford starts the fourth with a 30-yard Jordan Williamson field goal, the only field goal he’d make in the game. It’s 31-24 Stanford.• Williamson’s ensuing kickoff went out of bounds. Talk about a rough day at the office.• Oklahoma State goes 60 yards in eight plays and caps its drive off with a 17-yard Justin Blackmon touchdown reception. Make it six catches, three touchdowns and 158 yards for Blackmon to this point. Nuts. It’s 31-31.• I’m not sure what this strut is, but I like it: While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

Help us keep that up. • It was a big drive for Josh Cooper, who caught four balls for 34 yards.• Justin Southwell sighting:Screenshot (389)• Stanford responds with another classic Stanford drive, going 69 yards in 13 plays while taking 7:13 off the clock. It ended with a 1-yard Stepfan Taylor touchdown run. It’s 38-31 Stanford. OSU still hasn’t led in the game.• The clash of styles is so much fun to watch. It’s like if Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather were somehow in the same weight class. One team is seemingly going for knockout blows only, the other is taking a more methodical, tactical approach.• On the Cowboys’ next drive, they get stuck in an early fourth-and-4 from their 30. Gundy goes for it with under four minutes to go, and Justin Blackmon turns a simple slant route into a 21-yard gain. Every one in the tri-state area knew Weeden was going to Blackmon, but there was nothing Stanford could do about it.• That play seemed to suck the air out of Stanford’s defense. Weeden follows that fourth-down play up with completions for 19 and 16 yards, and those Nor-Cal boys are gassed.• Now at Stanford’s 4, Weeden gives it to Joseph Randle, and he takes it in to tie it up at 38. Randle struggled all night and finished with only 23 rushing yards, and, as a team, the Cowboys finished with 13 rushing yards AND WON THE GAME (spoiler alert).• It took four full quarters, but finally the Stanford defense was on E. Here’s a look at the Stanford defenders at the snap:Screenshot (391)• With fewer than three minutes to go, the Stanford offense has to pick up it’s pace, and the Cardinal look good doing it. I don’t think I appreciated how good Andrew Luck was watching this game live.• Stanford gets it to the OSU 17, smack dab in the middle of the hashes, and out comes Williamson with three seconds left.• Timeout Gundy, as he ices the redshirt freshman.• Stanford resets. The snap is good, the hold is good, but the kick might have not went through a set of goal posts sat up next to the actual goal posts. He hooked it left, just as he did in the first quarter.Tomorrow, we’re going to overtime.last_img read more
