Trauma Tuesday: Ski Lift Fail Edition (with bonus hotdogging)

first_imgThis clown (too harsh?) tries to get on the lift mid-mountain and pays for it.Ah, the ski lift fail. Most people have an unhealthy relationship with the lift. Getting on and off is one of the scariest, and biggest, huddles there is when learning how to ski and continues to give even the most seasoned riders trouble on occasion. Take myself for example. I’ve been shredding slopes since before I can remember, and yet I am legitimately frightened EVERY SINGLE TIME I have to disembark from a chair lift. This is not a joke. This is an actual problem. I once knew a person who couldn’t ski; not because they didn’t have the talent or desire, but because they were afraid they would throw themselves off the lift, voluntarily and without reason. That’s a little weird, but you get the point. There is even a whole movie based on the fear of chair lifts.I have a long history of terrible ski lift stories. There was the time I tried to ride a pommel lift early in my ski career and got my pole straps wrapped around the bar so that when I fell after about 10 feet of riding, I got dragged up the rest of the way by my arm. Or the time I tried to ride a steep t-bar almost to the top before catching an edge and taking out half the other riders on the way down. I’ve also broken highbacks, been clipped in the head, had my pack ripped off, dropped a glove (the WORST), and lost a ski while trying to drop snow on the skiers below (karma is also the worst/best). Yet, given all this, the chair lift is an essential part of the resort experience. Not only does it get you to the top, but it allows you to take a breather and chat with your fellow skiing stranger. There is a lot of other stuff that goes on on a chair lift, but we’ll save that for another post.If that didn’t get your goat, here’s some bonus footage of 1970s hotdogging. Epic bails, and even more epic ballet. Those were heady times. Love the guy drinking a beer as he warms up.last_img read more

Colombian Forces Arrest Eleven FARC Collaborators

first_img On August 17, during operation JERICHO 2, aimed at disrupting FARC’s Terrorist Support Networks (RAT), and continuing the process that began last June with a joint effort of the Southwestern Joint Command and National Police, the 6th battlefront ONT-FARC was raided once again in the Corinth and Caloto municipalities in the Cauca Department. The operation was the result of hard work and coordinating intelligence between the National Army and the police, where they gathered strong evidence regarding the participation of at least 11 people in different terrorist actions carried out by the ONT-FARC. These actions account for the assassination of three members of the Apollo Task Force on February 20th in the town of Palo, the Caloto municipality, where the attack with tatucos (homemade grenades) killed Mayor Dixon Castrillón, corporal Luis Enrique Rojas and soldier Mauricio Botero. The collaboration of the state forces strengthens the work that is being done in the Northern Cauca Department to combat FARC terrorist actions, which are based on the use of unconventional explosive devices, and actions that do not require direct confrontation, therefore, these arrests are important for the destabilization of the RAT. The investigation was conducted as a result of the comprehensive search for information, through the effective management of human sources with access to areas intruded by terrorist groups who commit frequent criminal acts, such as selective killings, forced displacement, arms trafficking, drug trafficking, and attacks on military and police units. Those arrested are being brought before a judge for Control of Guarantees to answer for the alleged crimes they are accused of. By Dialogo August 21, 2012last_img read more

Roslyn’s Center Cuts Customers Can Now ‘Meat Again’ in the Hamptons

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Doug Cohen and Justin Aronoff are a young pair of butchers whose passion for meat has spread far beyond their Center Cuts store in Roslyn.Out on the East End some loyal customers won’t go for even a weekend without having their culinary creations to enjoy. To satisfy those roving carnivores, these two men are taking their show on the road…to the Hamptons and beyond.“We went out and bought a big refrigerated truck,” said Cohen, who just turned 27 over the Memorial Day holiday, “and we’re going to be doing home deliveries on Fridays and Saturdays out there.”Cohen is the elder of the pair; his partner, Aronoff, is only 22, but they talk about their craft like two old-timers who’ve been in the business for generations. After graduating with a degree in hospitality and restaurant management, Cohen was managing the now-defunct Meat House on Northern Boulevard in Roslyn when Aronoff came in one day looking for a job.“We hated each other instantly,” recalled Cohen, making Aronoff burst out laughing. Soon they were spending late nights at Starbucks talking about the butcher business.“And that was before we even knew what we were going to do,” he added. “But we both knew that we wanted to own our own place.”Another thing they had in common was their close connection to the area and their clientele. Aronoff went to Roslyn High School and Cohen went to The Wheatley School in Old Westbury.“You can’t get closer to the neighborhood than that,” said Aronoff.While they were plotting their future, The Meat House and its nearby rival, Prime Time Butchers, were going under. Far from seeing that decline as a sign that the vegetarians had taken over and everybody would be eating nothing but tofu from then on, these guys saw it as an opportunity.Dry Aged Ribeye from Center Cuts. (Credit: Center Cuts/Facebook)As for going organic, when they opened Center Cuts in 2014, they stocked 100-percent grass-fed beef but the demand for it wasn’t as strong as they anticipated.“In all honesty, it’s a little tougher, a little less tasty than a prime steak, which has that really buttery, really rich flavor,” said Cohen. “A lot of our customers are looking for that, so that’s what we sell more of.”All the meat and poultry in Center Cuts is free of hormones and antibiotics, Cohen claims. He says they’ll gladly order grass-fed beef to please a customer “but it’s just less popular” so they don’t keep it around.Wait a minute: Considering on online MBA? There’s many benefits to pursuing a master’s in business administration online rather than the traditional in-class settingAs the summer heats up, so does their schedule. These days Cohen and Aronoff are busy barbecuing for families other than their own because the catering side of their operation is simply sizzling.“We’re going to be out in the Hamptons, doing a party at somebody’s house,” said Cohen. “We have parties all over the neighborhood. We go there, we bring our chefs and servers and everything, and we cook for them.” They’re booked up through June and July is filling up fast. And that’s their weekend plans. On weekdays they’re often catering lunches to financial firms and companies in the area such as Morgan Stanley, Wells Fargo, and UPS. A typical order might entail five or six full trays of food.“The offices love our maple-bourbon chicken breasts, sliced, with an orzo salad and sweet mashed potatoes,” said Aronoff. “It’s healthy and it’s clean. That’s really popular.”Aronoff says that another one of Center Cuts’ specialties is their “signature house steak tips,” which consists of marinated sirloin steak tips that they place in a vacuum-sealed tumbling machine.“We have two marinades that we do,” said Cohen. “We put the meat in there with the marinade, and it gets really infused into the meat. People go crazy for it. They’re perfect for the grill. Kids love them; adults love them.”They also have a special burger blend of ground brisket and ground boneless short ribs.“They’re both prime cuts,” Cohen explained. “It’s hamburger but it’s like the juiciest, tastiest hamburger you’ve ever had.”As could be expected, the pair was tight-lipped about listing all the ingredients in their marinades.“Our house marinade is a mild Italian [blend],” said Aronoff. “It’s got garlic, onion, and black pepper. We put a little bit of mustard seed in there, and add a little bit of red wine vinegar to give the meat some tenderness. That’s our special house marinade. The other flavor we do is maple bourbon, which people love.”They also have a home-made barbecue rub that they make in-house.“We toast all the spices and we grind them down,” Aronoff explained. “If we do barbecued-style pulled beef, or barbecue-style pulled pork—anything like that—we use that rub in combination with a homemade barbecue sauce, too.”So, you might ask, what do these young men have for lunch, assuming they have the time to sit down and enjoy it?“This is where Justin is really going to shine,” said Cohen. “I’ll let him tell you what he eats.”“We do a steak and cheese hero that we’re known for,” Aronoff said. “We take our house steak tips, and we slice them up. They’re sautéed with peppers and onions, and topped with white American cheese. And that’s our signature sandwich. We put it on regular Italian bread.”That’s about as close to the Philly cheesesteak as Center Cuts gets.“For me,” said Cohen, “I would take a brisket burger, medium rare, with American cheese and smoked bacon. That’s just one man’s opinion.”Just then Gail Aronoff, Justin’s mom, who frequently helps out at the butcher store, happened to be in the office when the young men spoke to the Press.“What about a woman’s opinion?” she volunteered. “Women like the Roslyn!”“We have a sandwich called ‘The Roslyn,’” noted Cohen.“The Roslyn is marinated grilled chicken with roasted red peppers, fresh mozzarella, which we make in-house, and a homemade balsamic dressing that we make in-house, too,” Aronoff helpfully explained.His mom admitted that she “never, never” would have predicted that her 22-year-old son would have become such an accomplished butcher. “I’m proud every day,” Gail Aronoff said enthusiastically. “It’s amazing!”And apparently that’s become an increasingly common reaction from Center Cuts’ customers, who get to savor what Cohen and Aronoff routinely serve up at their meat counter in Roslyn.last_img read more

Growing number of mentally ill Dutch choosing to be killed at euthanasia clinic

first_imgLifeSiteNews 7 August 2015 A growing number of Dutch patients whom their family doctor is not willing to euthanize, including many who are mentally ill but otherwise healthy, are obtaining “help” at the End-of-Life Clinic that opened its doors in 2012, according to half-year statistics just released by the private organization based in The Hague, Netherlands.In the first six months of 2015, almost as many cancer patients were killed by euthanasia at the hands of the clinic as during the whole of 2014: a total of 49 from January through June 2015, as compared to 53 in 2014.Nineteen psychiatric patients obtained euthanasia from the End-of-Life Clinic from January to June 2015: one more than in the whole of 2014, when 18 psychiatric patients who were not dying or otherwise in bad health obtained death from the Clinic.Compared with national euthanasia statistics – about 5,000 a year in the Netherlands – these numbers may seem insignificant. But they underscore growing pressure on the part of euthanasia activists to make access to “chosen death” more easy to obtain, especially for those patients whose suffering is not associated with intolerable pain or a terminal illness.The End-of-Life Clinic was created three years ago by the Dutch Association for a Chosen End of Life (Nederlandse Vereniging voor een Vrijwillig Levenseinde, NVVE), with a view to catering for patients who fall within the recognized categories for legal euthanasia, but whose doctor is either unable or unwilling to honor their request.The clinic’s offices are in The Hague but euthanasia is provided by 40 mobile teams who are expected to work within the limits of the law, mostly for patients who are in a hopeless situation but not terminally ill, dementia patients, people with psychiatric disorders and elderly people suffering from multiple but non-fatal complaints. They kill patients in the “comfort” of their own homes.The fact that the End-of-Life Clinic can exist in the Netherlands was certainly helped by an ever-widening interpretation of the legal criteria for “careful” euthanasia – inversely, its existence is attracting more and more people to take avail of its services and in turn is causing the legal criteria to widen even more.https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/growing-number-of-mentally-ill-dutch-choosing-to-be-killed-at-euthanasia-cllast_img read more

Phil’s stunner silences Anfield

first_img It still leaves Everton without a victory at Anfield since 1999, but rarely will a point ever have felt so sweet. There was a surprise in the Everton team, with veteran full-back Tony Hibbert making his first league start since December 2012 in place of the injured Seamus Coleman. Midfielder Muhamed Besic made his first league start for the visitors while Liverpool were again without influential striker Daniel Sturridge, who had targeted a return in this game from a thigh injury. The Merseyside derby has not disappointed in recent years, although the red half of the city has had much the better of it. As well as their long drought at Anfield, Everton were looking for a first derby win of any kind in four years. Roberto Martinez was hoping the fact the game was being played exactly 15 years to the day since their last win at Anfield could be a good omen. Both managers saw the match as a potential injection of life into their respective seasons, with Brendan Rodgers looking back to January, when a 4-0 win began a sequence of 37 points from a possible 39. The game started at a frenetic pace and referee Martin Atkinson might have given two penalties and a red card in the opening 10 minutes. Press Association Gareth Barry was booked for a foul on Adam Lallana inside the first minute and the Liverpool fans were baying for blood when he brought down Balotelli, but Atkinson kept his cards in his pocket this time. Everton were the first to appeal for a spot-kick when Alberto Moreno appeared to bring down Romelu Lukaku but Atkinson said no, as he did four minutes later when Raheem Sterling’s shot struck Barry’s arm. The hosts were attacking with verve and lots of pace, keen to get on top of Everton’s leaky defence early on. Following Barry’s second foul, Balotelli drew Tim Howard into a first save with a deflected free-kick, and from the corner the American reacted brilliantly to keep out Lallana’s header. The boyhood Everton fan looked particularly bright, and the space down the flanks created by Everton’s narrow midfield was giving full-backs Moreno and Javier Manquillo plenty of space to attack into. Applying the finishing touch was the problem, though, and Balotelli, Liver bird sculpted into his hair, lacked the necessary conviction on a number of occasions as he sought his first Premier League goal for the Reds. Everton’s attacks were ponderous in comparison, although Leighton Baines did get away down the left and rolled the ball across goal, where it was scrambled clear by Dejan Lovren. The visitors were dealt a blow on the half-hour mark when Kevin Mirallas appeared to pull a hamstring in full flight and was carried off to be replaced by Aiden McGeady. The good news for Everton was the league’s worst defence was holding up well and, when Liverpool did get through, Howard was on form, keeping out shots from Jordan Henderson and Sterling as the half drew to a close. Liverpool were straight on the attack after the break and James McCarthy did superbly to foil Lazar Markovic as he looked to convert a Sterling through ball. On the hour mark the Serbian was taken off to be replaced by Philippe Coutinho, and five minutes later Liverpool finally made the breakthrough. Baines was judged to have brought down Balotelli 22 yards out and, although Howard got a hand to Gerrard’s free-kick, he could not keep it out. Two minutes later it should have been two as Sterling got away down the left before crossing for Balotelli, who hit the top of the bar from six yards. Martinez responded by sending on 20-year-old Tyias Browning for his debut in place of Hibbert, while Samuel Eto’o came on for Besic in a final throw of the dice. Everton piled on the pressure without really looking like finding a leveller until Jagielka’s dramatic intervention, and Barry could even have won it with a late back-heel. Phil Jagielka rifled a shot into the top corner in injury time to earn Everton a dramatic 1-1 draw in the Merseyside derby at Anfield. The hosts looked to have earned what would have been a deserved victory through Steven Gerrard’s 65th-minute free-kick – a record ninth Barclays Premier League goal in the fixture for the Reds captain. But, with 91 minutes on the clock, Jagielka, who had not scored for Everton since April 2013, let fly with an effort that gave Simon Mignolet no chance. last_img read more

Hillary Clinton to speak at cyber defense summit

first_imgThe event is meant to inform executives on cybersecurity, as well as security practitioners on how to “mitigate, detect, and respond to cyber attacks.”Clinton’s narrative will follow a series of appearances in which she attributed her 2016 loss mostly to Russian cyber activities in her email server used to interfere in the election.In May, she said the election was “stolen” from her.“I think it’s also critical to understand that, as I’ve been telling candidates who have come to see me, you can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,” said Clinton.That loss, according to her, was also influenced by former FBI Director James Comey’s decision to notify Congress about his agency’s investigation into her email servers.The scandal hungover Clinton’s head through the duration of the campaign, creating doubt of her trustworthiness among her constituents. Former Democratic presidential nominee will serve as a keynote speaker at the Cyber Defense Summit 2019, the cybersecurity company FireEye announced on Thursday.We are pleased to announce that Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will be a featured keynote at our #FireEyeSummit in October!
