Rebels close in on Murdoch Division title, edge Hawks 4-3

first_imgBy The  Nelson Daily SportsTwo seasons ago the Castlegar Rebels made it to the Murdoch Division only to be swept in four games by the Nelson Leafs.There’s not much of a resemblance between the two Castlegar teams.Taylor Anderson had three points to lead the Rebels to within one game of advancing to the Kootenay Conference Final after Castlegar edged Beaver Valley 4-3 in Murdoch Division Final action Tuesday in Fruitvale.The Rebels lead the best-of-seven playoff series 3-1 and can advance to the next round with a win Thursday in the Sunflower City.The difference Tuesday was a 20-minute span from late in the first and into the second frame when Castlegar scored four consecutive goals — three on the power play — to take a 4-1 lead.Nelson Minor Hockey grad Ryon Sookro scored to cut the lead to 4-2 before the period ended.The Hawks’ leading scorer during the regular season, Sookro, added a power play goal late in the third but that would be as close as the host team would get.For the second straight game on the road the Rebels out shot the Hawks 26-14, including 12-4 in the third period. In the two games in Fruitvale, Castlegar held a 69-28 advantage.Ryan Aynsley, Stuart Walton, Anderson and Kootenay Ice affiliate player Jesse Knowler, scored for the Rebels.Tyler Collins scored 36 seconds into the game for the other Beaver Valley marker.Around the KIJHL . . . .Hewitt pulls Cats even with RidersA goal by Ryan Hewitt with nine seconds remaining in the second period proved to be the winner as Creston Valley Thunder Cats edged the Fernie Ghostriders 2-1 to even the best-of-seven Eddie Mountain Division Final at 2-2 Tuesday in Creston.

Jennifer Ellison Brown: Indentifying and treatment principles for sport injuries

first_imgThe following injuries are considered as dangerous conditions: – Concussions: Injury to the brain after a knock on the head. Sometimes there is a delay between the injury and losing consciousness. The casualty may be unconscious, sick or drowsy, get confused, stare and suffer memory loss. These signs may not appear until hours after the injury. – Shock: When enough blood is not circulating around the body due to fluid loss from severe bleeding or burns, vomiting, diarrhoea, or heavy sweating. The signs and symptoms are cold clammy skin, blue lips, rapid weak pulse, rapid shallow breathing, thirst, dizziness, nausea. The casualty may become restless, anxious and aggressive, may yawn and gasp for air and may even become unconscious and dies. – Hypothermia (freezing): The internal body temperature becomes dangerously low (below 350C). This happens when the body is being exposed to cold and wind or in very cold water for too long. The signs and symptoms are shivering, cold, pale dry skin, slow shallow breathing, slow weakening pulse, feeling confused and lacking energy. The casualty may collapse, become unconscious and die if not treated. – Hyperthermia (overheating): The body temperature has risen above 390C and can lead to several different conditions such as: • Heat exhaustion: the body temperature rises and water and salt is lost through excessive sweating. Signs of heat exhaustion includes headaches, lightheadedness, pale grey skin, weak rapid pulse, dizziness, muscle cramps. Shock may develop if water loss is severe. • Dehydration: this is like heat exhaustion, but less severe. The individual feels weak and dizzy through the loss of water and salts from the body. – Heat stroke: this is when the body suddenly stops sweating and the temperature rises out of control. This usually happens during long, vigorous physical activity in a hot and humid environment. The signs and symptoms are sudden lapses into confusion or delirium, rapid strong pulse and hot dry skin. He or she may become unconscious and die if not treated quickly. This routine is used in the case of most soft tissue injuries. Such injuries must be treated as soon as possible after they occur to prevent them from getting worse. The purpose of RICE is to reduce pain, swelling and bruising around an injured area and speed up the healing process. Rest: Stop activity and support the injury in a comfortable position to prevent further injury. Ice: Put an ice pack on the injury for 10-15 minutes every hour. Remove the ice pack after every 15 minutes. This reduces blood flow and swelling. Compression: Wrap a bandage firmly around the injured area. This reduces internal bleeding. Elevation: Raise the injury above the level of the heart. This reduces internal bleeding, swelling and throbbing. We also need to continue to treat the injury properly throughout the recovery. First 48 hours: Ice 10-15 minutes every hour. Avoid using heat because it increases blood flow, avoid drinking alcohol, it increase swelling, avoid activity and do not massage. 48-72 hours: Apply ice and heat alternate for 5 minutes periods to increase blood flow to and from injured area. This encourage healing. 72 hours and after: Heat baths, hot water bottles etc, start rehabilitation activities. (Active movement, passive stretching and active strengthening). Rice should not be used for fractures and dislocations. These should be moved as little as possible and professional medical assistance sought. Treatment principles for common sport-related injuries The R.I.C.E Principle The immediate action to be taken when an individual suffers an injury during physical activity is to get the person from the pitch or playing area and seek appropriate help. We can reduce the time before we return to sport by acting quickly when we are first injured. The following procedures are used: DRABC Principle This routine is used when a person has collapsed and may be unconscious. The aim is to keep the casualty breathing until an ambulance arrives. Lack of oxygen very quickly leads to brain damage. D: Danger – check for danger, this could mean stopping the game. R: Response – shake the casualty gentle to get a response. If the casualty is conscious and can speak find out where the pain is. Stop any bleeding and support broken bones. Send for an ambulance. If the casualty is unconscious move on to resuscitation (A, B, C) A: Airways make sure the tongue is not blocking the airways. Loosen tight clothing, raise the chin and tilt the head backwards, remove obvious obstructions such as gum, or vomit. B: Breathing – look for signs of breathing. If the casualty is breathing, stop any bleeding and support broken bones. Place in the recovery position while you get help. If no sign of breathing move to C. C: Circulation – feel for the carotid pulse in the neck. A pulse will show that the heart is beating. If there is a pulse, give mouth-to-mouth ventilation to restore breathing. If there is no breathing, phone for an ambulance as quickly as possible. Give cardiac massage and mouth-to-mouth ventilation to restore circulation and breathing.

There’s a 747 inside that 818

first_img“Times have changed dramatically in California,” she said. “We now have 37 million people. Everybody and their brother has a cell phone, a fax, a pager. “Some have two or three telephone lines. They all require area codes and prefixes, so it’s no surprise that they would be running short.” The change, however, is expected to generate strident opposition from residents who don’t want to have to dial 11 digits to reach their neighbors and from business owners who don’t want to reprogram all their machines and print new stationery. There are also some who just feel the lone area code of 818 helps define the Valley as a single, unified region. “We have fought to have our own census district, our own statistical district – all these things we’ve been fighting for to make the Valley a unique place,” said City Councilwoman Wendy Greuel. “This would challenge that ability.” The 818 area code was created in 1984 when the Valley was split from the Los Angeles 213 code. Some longtime community residents recall few protests at the time, in part because Valley people saw the code as a reflection that their area was developing its own identity. In popular culture, 818 has sometimes been used as a shorthand moniker for the Valley itself. The projection that the Valley will run out of 818 numbers by late 2009 comes from the North American Numbering Plan Administration. The service is operated by Virginia-based NeuStar Inc. and oversees the national telephone numbering system. And this is not the first time the administration has made such a projection about 818. In 1999-2000, the PUC also considered adding 747 to the Valley, based on administration projections that 818 would be exhausted within a year or two. But local residents loudly protested, and lawmakers forced state and federal officials to admit there were thousands of numbers still within 818 that were sitting around unused. At the time, federal rules called for numbers to be allocated to phone companies an entire prefix at a time, meaning a block of 10,000 numbers. In many cases, smaller carriers needed only 500 or 1,000 numbers per prefix, leaving large chunks simply unassigned, yet unavailable to other carriers. Amid the protests, the federal government changed the rules so numbers are now allocated in blocks of 1,000. The PUC then backed off its proposed 818 split. But some telecommunications experts say an 818 split may now be inevitable because the numbers truly are being exhausted, and there is no easy fix this time.

You’re all set! “One would hope that the PUC would be reaching out to local business groups on a policy change as significant as this,” said Brendan Huffman, president of the Valley Industry and Commerce Association. “But you can’t rely on governmental agencies to always do that, especially when they’re located in Northern California.” Susan Carothers, spokeswoman for the commission, said the agency plans to publicize the plan soon and has scheduled a series of public hearings in the Valley next month. But while Valley residents’ comments are welcome, there is virtually nothing that can stop the new area code from coming, and the hearings will focus more on how to implement it rather than whether it is necessary. Carothers said the change is driven by the region’s growing population and the proliferation of multiple electronic devices that require additional phone lines. Forget living in “The 818.” Overwhelmed by demand for new lines, the telephone area code that has defined the San Fernando Valley for more than two decades is quickly running out. And the California Public Utilities Commission now is considering adding a 747 area code to the Valley because the remaining 818 numbers are expected to be used up within the next two years. Options include dividing the Valley geographically into two area-code zones, roughly along east-west lines, or simply assigning the new 747 code to all new phone lines no matter where they are in the Valley. But the plans came as a shock Thursday to many Valley officials and activists who have long touted 818 as a virtual symbol of the Valley’s unique identity and who had no idea a Valley 747 was in the works. last_img read more

Ben Stokes to be pulled out from England’s ODI team vs Australia

first_imgBen Stokes will not be playing in the five-match One-Day Internationals (ODIs) series between England and Australia, starting January 14 in Melbourne.Ben Stokes’ name in the England ODI squad, announced by England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), had raised a few eyebrows and now it is certain that the all-rounder won’t be a part of the ODI series in Australia.Dawid Malan is likely to replace the all-rounder in the English squad.ECB had included Stokes’ name in the England squad and had made it clear that his eventual selection is subject to the outcome regarding his Bristol incident.As Stokes still awaits a decision into the case from Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), he will not be able to play for England.Alex Hales, who was with Stokes during the Bristol brawl, was not charged by the police and has been cleared to play for England in the upcoming ODI series Down Under.Ben Stokes was arrested after an incident in Bristol and was detained before being released without charge.Having been left out of England’s Ashes squad post the incident, Stokes signed a short-term contract with Canterbury.Apart from his 47-ball innings of 93 against the Otago Volts in a Twenty20 Super Smash match at Hagley Oval last Thursday, Stokes had largely been mediocre.Stokes scored just 36 runs from three 50-over matches and went for 1-144 with the ball. In the T20 Super Smash, he took just two wickets and notched up 133 runs from three innings.He has already returned to United Kingdom post his short stint in New Zealand.advertisementIn a statement, Canterbury said on Saturday that Stokes has cited ‘family reasons’ for ending his cameo with them.Despite an underwhelming performances ‘back home’, Canterbury CEO Jez Curwin said that the English all-rounder has made a good impression at the club.”We can’t fault his attitude or his all-round contribution in his time with us and we are sorry that he couldn’t stay with us for longer but Ben knows that he will always find a welcome here should the opportunity arise for him to return,” Curwin said in a statement on the team’s website.Stokes said he had “thoroughly enjoyed training and playing with Canterbury”.”It’s a wonderful club and I couldn’t have asked for any more from my time here,” he said in the statement.last_img read more
