first_imgKale Casey with the State Division of Forestry: “The southwest corner of the fire, which burned off a couple days ago and created that heavy smoke, that held yesterday during those winds. That is the best news we have for the community of Sterling is that corner is holding.”  FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Swan Lake Fire has grown and is now estimated at roughly 22,847 acres as of Friday with 291 personnel.  The primary growth has been towards the eastern flanks. Casey: “During the early morning hours today the Sterling Highway was impacted by heavy fog from the marine layer and heavy thick smoke from the black spruce stand burning east of Mystery Creek Road. Law Enforcement temporarily closed the highway between mileposts 63-70 after a minor vehicle accident and utilized pilot cars as soon as the road conditions improved. Motorists should expect delays and are encouraged to be patient and drive cautiously while traversing the Sterling Highway.” Hotshot crews from the Lower 48 are working today to aggressively establish control lines with the highest probability of success, according to Casey. Crews are working to establish and connect fire lines in the Mystery Creek Road area as the fire continues to burn through the thick black spruce stands in a southeasterly direction. Fog and heavy Smoke Caused delays on Sterling Highway early this morning near Mystery Creek Road.  The eastern flank of the fire east of Mystery Creek Road continued to move east in a long narrow finger and is now approximately 4 miles from the Sterling Highway. An air quality advisory has been issued until Monday, June 24 for southcentral Alaska for smoke conditions related to current fire operations. The Department of Environmental Conservation advises people with respiratory or heart disease problems to avoid smoke impacted areas.last_img read more

Iniesta bids farewell, as curse remains

first_imgThey had a favourable head-to-head record against Russia and went into the game as heavy favourites. But Spain were unable to conquer a curse that has haunted them since 1934. For many years, La Roja were plagued by a quarter-final hoodoo at the FIFA World Cup™, with the last eight representing a glass ceiling that they simply could not break through. They finally overcame that obstacle at South Africa 2010 and duly lifted the Trophy. On Sunday afternoon in Moscow, however, another curse reared its ugly head again. Spain have still never beaten World Cup hosts at ‘their’ tournament. As if the loss were not painful enough for the Spanish fans, they then found out that the man whose goal made the country world champions in 2010 is retiring from international football. “This is the end of a long chapter for me. Everything has a beginning and an ending. Sometimes farewells don’t go the way you’d like them to,” a crestfallen Andres Iniesta told FIFA after the game. “We gave it our all, but the opposition stuck to their task and penalties are cruel. We came up short; we weren’t able to take that final step. No-one can be blamed for missing a penalty in situations like these,” he added. “It’s a tough pill to swallow, but we’ve got to all learn from this experience.”last_img read more


The infection strikes a representation. There will be no Czech…

first_imgPhoto: Aleš Krecl, Czech hockeyDue to the recent occurrence of the disease among members of youth selections and the related quarantine measure, the CSLH decided to cancel the August representation events. Representatives of Czech hockey informed about it in a press release. The Czech hockey games, prepared in an alternative date in Brno, as well as the preparatory camps, matches and tournaments of the youth national teams were canceled. There will also be no Summer Camp of Czech Hockey for players of the years 2010 and 2011, which was to take place at the beginning of the month.Representative events are attended by players from different clubs, and in a situation where the occurrence of an infection with a single team member usually means a fortnightly quarantine for the entire team and sometimes the closing of the stadium, club hockey and the coming year of competitions are in jeopardy.“Under the currently set quarantine measures, the competition season could probably not take place,” said the president of Czech Hockey, Tomáš Král. “We negotiate daily with representatives of state institutions on how to deal with the situation of clubs organizationally and economically. We are working hard on it, but while we could handle other restrictions, we cannot compete without players, training and matches. ”Photo: Martin VoltrOther restrictions also complicate the international season. Under the current conditions, the Russian team, for example, would not be able to take part in the Czech Hockey Games, and Finnish hockey players would also have to apologize.The development of the situation and the start of the competition season will be addressed by the meetings of the ČSLH Executive Committee in August and early September 2020, which will address, among other things, possible adjustments to the schedule, game rules and competition model.The management of ČSLH is in regular contact with the head of the group for dismantling epidemiological measures Rastislav Maďar, the chairman of the National Sports Agency Milan Hnilička and together with representatives of state institutions and other sports associations they are looking for ways to start and implement the competition season. “We still have some time and we do everything to make it happen,” added Tomáš Král.

Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry are ‘best shooters to ever walk the earth,’ Kevin Durant says

first_imgKevin Durant hailed Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry as “the best shooters to ever walk the earth” after another historic night for the Warriors.It was Thompson’s turn to take center stage Monday in Chicago, the swingman hitting an NBA-record 14 3-pointers and scoring 52 points in just more than 26 minutes on court in a 149-124 win over the Bulls. Five crazy stats from Klay Thompson’s record-setting performance against Bulls Curry set the previous record of 13 3s two years ago and played his part in helping Thompson take his record.Durant felt fortunate to see both teammates make history. Related News Watching Klay go off is a lot of funGet a closer look at tonight’s win in our Game Rewind, presented by @verizon. pic.twitter.com/IW0BiDjBZE— Golden State Warriors (@warriors) October 30, 2018″Two great moments, great to be a part of it,” Durant said. “To see Steph break the record first two years ago and to see Klay break it. It’s only fitting that those two hold the records, hold the most 3-point shots in a game.”The best shooters to ever walk the earth, and probably nobody will ever shoot like those two ever again.” Curry had no problem losing his record to a fellow Warrior.”Records are obviously meant to be broken,” he said. “I’m just happy it’s my teammate and nobody else. And I got to witness it in person.”He added: “It was like a pitcher throwing a no-hitter. Like, you don’t really mention anything to him. It’s kind of just everybody else figuring out ways we’re going to keep feeding him the ball and running our offense to obviously cater to him to knock down shots.”last_img read more
