CHERRY HILL — A man has been charged and arrested after cocaine and fentanyl were found in a 2-year-old girl’s system after she died on July 23.

Police were called to a house on Evergreen Avenue around 7:45 p.m. after the toddler stopped breathing, according to Camden County District Attorney Grace MacAulay. First responders took the unconscious child to Cooper University Hospital where she was pronounced dead just after 9 p.m.

The inquest into her death revealed illegal substances in the girl’s system. Drug paraphernalia was also found in the house near where the child was found, according to MacAulay.

Walter Clark has been charged with first-degree manslaughter, second-degree aggravated assault and two counts of second-degree endangering the welfare of a child. He is being held in Camden County Jail.

MacAulay did not reveal the relationship between Clark and the child.

Cherry Hill Police Chief Robert Kempf says NJPen.com that Clark and his girlfriend were babysitting for a friend.

What would happen to NJ if we were attacked by nuclear weapons?

We used NUKEMAP by Alex Wellerstein to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington or New Jersey.

Models show what would happen during an air detonation, meaning the bomb would be detonated into the sky, causing extensive damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a detonation on the ground, which would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from the fallout.

As a state, it’s no surprise that Google cuts nearly more than any other state in the country. In fact, we’re number two nationwide in coupon usage.

And it’s no wonder. We’re probably the most cash-strapped with all the taxes we pay here. Not only that, but apparently we’re also a coupon-savvy bunch.

I admit there’s almost nothing I buy that I’m not looking for a coupon for. You just know they exist, so why waste 10% or 20% off when all it takes is a quick Google search to find that discount?

an interesting new research study by Forbes Advisor find that we are in the top five states that are looking for the most coupons. Number one is Tennessee, followed by numbers 3, 4 and 5 by Maryland, Alabama and Texas.

As I said above, this is not surprising. What is surprising are the coupons we search for the most and these are for Wayfairthe famous furniture e-commerce site.

If you know, you know. Wayfair has everything you could need for home furnishings, from rugs to beds to linens, kitchen utensils, art and just about everything in between. And some of the homes you most admire are decorated entirely in rue du Wayfair website.

According to the research, search interest was highest in areas of New Jersey closest to the major cities of New York and Philadelphia. This makes sense since if you’ve ever seen the furniture on Wayfairyou know they do a great job of replicating many of the sophisticated and elegant styles that designers in town offer for a lot more money.

But it’s pretty easy to figure out which coupons are the most searched nationwide, and those are for clothes. SHEINThe ultra-popular women’s clothing site. SHEIN is a phenomenon in itself. In December of last year, searches for SHEIN coupons increased 1231% above average levels in South Dakota. In Kentucky, research SHEIN coupons increased by 497%. I guess a lot of people across the country have quelled their pandemic boredom by shopping for trendy and inexpensive women’s clothing.

Other coupons that remain extremely popular across the country are those for Softpet supplies website, GoodRx pharmaceutical discounter and several different food delivery services.

Everyone has their favorite coupon finding sites, but some seem to give you more than others every time. Some give you digital coupons, some give you coupons you can print out, some offer codes, and many show side-by-side price comparisons across all the different websites. Some of the best ones I’ve found and use regularly are:

Retailmenot.com

CouponFollow.com

DealNews.com

Groupon.com

GoodRx.com

ShopSavvy

The lesson to be learned is simple. Never buy anything without first researching a coupon, discount or promotional code. Especially in times like these when your money isn’t going that far, it’s crazy to forgo an available discount when all it takes is a quick Google search to find one. Buying without a coupon is leaving money on the table.

LOWELL – The sound of live music, mingling with crowds and the aroma of food from around the world, signaled the return of the Lowell Folk Festival on Saturday night, after a two-year hiatus.

Downtown Lowell was already buzzing before the first note was played by New Orleans’ Treme Brass Band, who kicked off the festival’s 35th anniversary by leading a spirited parade through Boarding House Park.

Kevin Dwyer, the executive director of the Lowell Folk Festival Foundation, couldn’t help but smile as he recalled the event, which had to be canceled the previous two summers due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“It’s so exciting now that we’re on the precipice and it’s actually about to start again for the first time since 2019,” Dwyer said.

Organizers say the Lowell Folk Festival typically draws more than 150,000 people for three days of music, food and art. Among the crowd on Saturday night were Concord residents Judith Schwartz and her husband Michael Furstenburg, who wore a 2017 Lowell Folk Festival t-shirt.

Schwartz, who describes the Lowell Folk Festival as his favorite event of the year, has attended the event for more than 30 years. She remembers being devastated to learn that the festival would not take place in 2020, and then again in 2021.

“On top of the pandemic and all of the other societal woes, having to miss it was just tragic,” Schwartz said.

Steve Christopher, from Westford, also expressed his excitement to be back in Mill City for the festival. Christopher has operated the Hawaiian shaved ice stand, set up in front of St. Anne’s Episcopal Church on Kirk Street, since 2015.

“It feels good to be back,” Christopher said. “I think most people are looking forward to it, you know, with COVID and everything, people got sick of being home. Whenever they can go out, have fun, and get back to normal, they will.

After the parade, which marched from City Hall to Boarding House Park, several city officials addressed the large crowd that had gathered there, including Mayor Sokhary Chau, who described the folk festival in Lowell as “the largest folk festival in the country”.

“We’ve endured two tough years in our past, but that’s part of our past,” added City Manager Tom Golden, who also energized the crowd with a spirited address. “The town of Lowell is here, you are here, and we are ready to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Lowell Folk Festival with all of you.”

For this year’s festival, Dwyer said he booked slightly fewer performers than normal and also set up four stages instead of the usual five. These decisions were made to ensure they had the necessary support and staff to keep the festival running smoothly.

“But we hope to come back with five stages next year and the same number of artists that we usually have,” Dwyer added.

The festivities are expected to continue Saturday noon. For more information, including the performance schedule, visit Lowellfolkfestival.org.

Bega Valley Driving School was founded in 2003.

Run by Alan and Deb Close, the school has educated many locals, the majority of whom are in the final stages of high school.

They cover an area roughly from Narooma to Eden and have two manual vehicles, three cars and two qualified instructors.

Their newest addition, Michael, joined the team in 2021. “His calm and friendly manner will put even the most nervous driver at ease,” said Deb.

Meanwhile, Alan has been teaching for 20 years. He is also qualified to deliver the Keys2drive courses, has been a facilitator and trainer for the NSW Safer Drivers course since 2014 and has also been a facilitator for the RYDA program since 2006.

Let’s talk about these three government initiatives.

Firstly, as described by Service NSW, “Keys2drive is an Australian government funded program that offers learner drivers and their parents/supervisors a free driving lesson with an accredited professional driving instructor. The lesson lasts one hour and the learner will receive training in the best ways to practice their conduct.”

NSW learners can claim this free driving lesson through Service NSW at any time after obtaining their learner’s permit.

Alan says it is also very beneficial for the parent or other guardian who will be supervising the learner at other times.

“By the end of the lesson, the parent has generally learned as much,” Alan said.

He also pointed out that a Monash University study found that since its inception in 2008, this program has halved the crash risk of drivers who have participated in it. This suggests that refresher training for each learner’s supervisor is also important.

The second program, the NSW Safer Drivers Course “can help you understand speed management, gap selection, hazard awareness, safe following distances and how to continue driving safely when distracted”, explains Service NSW.

By doing the three hour group discussion and two hour coaching session in a vehicle, NSW learners earn 20 hours of credit in their logbooks.

Alan says these classes take place about once a month in Merimbula or Bega.

And third, we have the RYDA program, which takes place in various locations across Australia.

“By adopting, in large part, an inquiry-based learning approach to students, RYDA is part of the school culture from the first to the last day of a young person’s high school life,” says Road Safety Education Limited.

Alan also praises this program, noting that it imparts a lot of useful, first-hand information to the youngsters in the class about the seriousness of things that can go wrong, and also takes them on a closed circuit. local (Frogs Hollow kart track in this case) to demonstrate some of the physics, especially stopping distances.

One of the hard things to figure out is the speed at which the speed is reduced, which is usually about half the speed that occurs in about the last quarter of the distance. This means that even a slightly higher cruising speed will result in noticeably longer stopping distance, or a surprisingly harder impact if you don’t stop in time.

Another thing they do to really push the point is put a dummy on the track, and it’s usually cleaned up, which serves as a reminder that the responsibility of controlling a motor vehicle is a life or death situation.

Kentucky by Heart: Legendary railroad engineer “Casey” Jones spent much of his childhood in Western Kentucky. https://center-hostel.com/kentucky-by-heart-legendary-railroad-engineer-casey-jones-spent-much-of-his-childhood-in-western-kentucky/ Tue, 26 Jul 2022 04:33:58 +0000 https://center-hostel.com/kentucky-by-heart-legendary-railroad-engineer-casey-jones-spent-much-of-his-childhood-in-western-kentucky/ By Steve FlairtyNKyTribune Columnist John Luther “Casey” Jones was a boy raised in Kentucky who grew to achieve a beloved stature as a railroad engineer, known throughout America.

John Luther “Casey” Jones was a boy raised in Kentucky who grew to achieve a beloved stature as a railroad engineer, known throughout America. But that broad success came after his tragic – albeit heroic – death by a train wreck in Mississippi.

Jones’ life and story reached dramatic heights when in 1909 two vaudevillians, Eddie Newton and T. Lawrence Seibert, published the first copyrighted version of “The Ballad of Casey Jones” as their names. Previously, Wallace Saunders, an illiterate windshield wiper in Canton, Mississippi, composed the song about Casey and sang it while he worked, and others also covered it.

Casey, according to most sources I’ve read (besides being noted by his wife), was probably born in southeastern Missouri in 1863 (the date according to the Bible of Casey’s mother’s family ). It is known, however, that as a child he moved with his parents in 1876 to the small community of Cayce, Kentucky in the western part of the state. Laura Beaver, director of the Casey Jones Home & Railroad Museum, in Jackson, Tennessee, explained how he got his new name. She said, “The nickname ‘Casey’ was given to Jones by other railroad workers because when they asked where he was from, Jones replied ‘Cayce, Kentucky’.”

As an adult, Casey lived in a boarding house in Jackson, Tennessee, and he fell in love with the owners’ daughter. After his marriage to Janie Brady, the two resided in Jackson, and he is generally accorded the terms “family man and sober”.

He worked as a brakeman for Mobile & Ohio Railroad on the route from Columbus, Kentucky, to Jackson, Tennessee, then as a firefighter on the route from Jackson to Mobile, Alabama. In 1891, Casey Jones achieved his life’s goal by becoming a locomotive engineer on the Illinois Central Railroad.

Although the event is not as well known as that of her death, she has been credited with saving the life of a little girl in 1895, five years before her heroism in the same condition that cost her death. life.

Beaver shared the story of the child’s rescue.

“When Casey and Bob Stephenson were coming to Michigan City, Mississippi, Casey got out on the running board to oil the wastegates and then on the pilot beam to adjust the spark arrester,” she said. “A group of children were playing among carriages on a nearby siding when the group, following a small girl, crossed the tracks in front of Casey’s train. When she froze on the rails, Casey bent down and lifted her off the rails.

Casey was known and respected by railroad men as “an entertainer with the engine,” said author Billy Reed quoted in his book, Famous Kentuckians. Reed added: “Famous for his heavy hand on the accelerator, Casey has also built a fine safety record. Until the night of his death, he was never involved in an accident in which anyone was killed or seriously injured.

And then the fateful day of April 30, 1900 arrived and it would enshrine Casey in American history. That day he pulled out locomotive No. 382 from Memphis at 12:50 a.m., one hour and thirty-five minutes late. He would hit speeds of 100 mph to make up time, and by the time he reached Grenada, Mississippi, he had made up sixty minutes. As time went on, he gained more time and was only fifteen minutes behind when he passed through Winona, Mississippi.

When Casey’s locomotive approached Vaughan, Mississippi, there were problems. A train was stuck on the track and when men tried to move it an air hose gave way and froze the wheels. Although Casey was able to decelerate No. 382 from seventy-five miles per hour to thirty-five, a collision in the caboose of the disabled train occurred. The firefighter jumped ahead, but Casey remained in the cabin and died in the collision – the only fatality.

It appears Casey Jones’ actions saved the lives of others in the cars. Billy Reed explained that when rescuers got to Casey, “they found his hands locked in a deadly grip on the brake and throttle.”

As mentioned earlier, the influence of the ballad of Casey Jones helped bring him an iconic legacy, and over time movies and television programs have made his life. Unfortunately, part of the ballad involved Casey’s wife having had an affair with another railroad worker.

The director of the Beaver Museum insists this is untrue and that Casey’s wife fought this story from the start. Beaver said of the writers, “They added what would appeal to audiences…it was in a loud era, featured in places where people were drinking.” In other words, the mention of the affair was a lie, and for very selfish reasons.

Casey Jones is buried in Jackson. You can learn more about his incredible life by visiting the Casey Jones House and Railroad Museum Facebook Page or by emailing caseyjonesmuseum@gmail.com.

On Thursday, an IndiGo flight due to take off from Jayprakash Narayan Airport (PAT) in Patna was grounded after a passenger claimed to be carrying a bomb in his bag. Authorities arrested the passenger and performed a thorough check of all bags on board the flight, finding no signs of explosive material. The flight, bound for Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL), was later canceled as a precaution.

Sequence of events

IndiGo Flight 6E 2126 is a scheduled service from Patna, the capital of the Indian state of Bihar, to DEL. The flight was to be operated by a 6-year-old Airbus A320neo registered VT-ITL, departing PAT at 8:20 p.m. local time for a 10:10 p.m. arrival in the nation’s capital. All times are IST.

SIMPLEFLYING VIDEO OF THE DAY

However, the passenger announced the bomb threat shortly after boarding was completed. Naturally, the plane was not allowed to take off and all passengers were disembarked. Airport security officials were alerted as well as the bomb disposal team, who then checked all bags and the entire aircraft.

Even sniffer dogs were called, but no bombs were found and the plane was declared safe after around three hours of investigation. Nevertheless, flight number 2126 was canceled, which caused additional inconvenience for the traumatized passengers. Local police arrested the unruly passenger, and several reports emerged saying he was mentally unstable. Another passenger said he was taken to hospital with his parents.

Station agent House Vinod Peter told The Times of India,

“According to Bedi’s parents, their son works in a private company in Patna and they live in Delhi. A few days ago they received a call from the company stating that their son was not feeling well and that they should take him. They arrived in Patna and were returning to Delhi on Thursday evening. After the trio boarded, the man hesitated to leave. Before closing the plane door, he started shouting that there was a bomb in the flight. Immediately, CISF staff detained him for questioning. The baggage of all passengers and aircraft will be carefully checked.

Simple Flying wrote to IndiGo for various details of the incident. This article will be updated when a response is received.

Passengers supported

After Flight 2126 was canceled, a passenger’s son took to Twitter to give a detailed account of what the passengers were going through. The user said IndiGo accommodated passengers stranded on another flight to Delhi which was due to depart the following morning. He also said airline staff provided his mother with a hotel room and airport transfers, due to “her medical condition”. However, it is impossible to verify whether all passengers benefited from such facilities.

The replacement flight, number 2999, departed PAT at 9:27 a.m. the next morning, 27 minutes after its scheduled departure time, and reached DEL at 10:45 a.m. safely, according to data from flightradar24.com. This flight was operated with the same aircraft as before.

Victoria Harbor Lumber Company and Store.

John Waldie’s factories in Victoria Harbor employed a large proportion of men from Tay and elsewhere to cut, haul, float and mill the mighty old growth forests of this region and further north to meet the needs of a country in full growth. Gone now.

For single men there was a pension if you worked at the mill. In the bush, it was a cabin.

These salt houses seen on map #1, beyond the VHL company store, were built by Waldie for his employees. The two-storey director’s houses were on the hill near the Presbyterian Church.

Locals called it the Canary Town because most of the houses were a creamy yellow.

John Waldie, it was said, would build a library and a town hall if the citizens voted to make it a “dry” town.

try to remember where you could go for a drink in Victoria Harbour, except the Royal Canadian Legion.

About one-eighth of what remained of all eastern forests was around Georgian Bay.

Michigan had already been cleared, and loggers were eyeing the issuance of logging permits for Simcoe, the district of Parry Sound and Muskoka, which were being auctioned off by a revenue-seeking government.

Logging, it was said, opened up the country, encouraged settlement, trade and brought people.

The names Cook, Dodge, Waldie and Playfair are just a few of the names that recall the booming lumber trade in Georgian Bay and its impact on the landscape.

The development comes a day after Speaker of Parliament Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena clarified that Gotabaya Rajapaksa is still in the country, shortly after reports emerged that the president had left the island nation.

Sri Lankan President Rajapaksa, who announced his resignation on Saturday, is believed to have previously fled and was in a third country.

“Sri Lanka’s President Gotabaya Rajapaksa is still in the country, I made a mistake in the (BBC) interview,” President Abeywardena told ANI in a phone call.

Asked about the whereabouts of Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and the Sri Lankan President, the speaker said both were still in the country.

The development comes after thousands of people stormed into the president’s home in Fort on Saturday. The dramatic visuals came from PM’s official residence where they were seen playing carrom board, sleeping on the couch, enjoying the park premises and preparing food for dinner.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe also announced he would step down from office amid ongoing protests. However, protesters who occupied the president’s and prime minister’s residences said they would continue to occupy their homes until they resign from office.

The worsening economic situation in the country has led to growing tensions and in recent weeks several clashes between individuals and members of the police and armed forces have been reported at gas stations where thousands of citizens desperate lined up. for hours and sometimes days.

Sri Lanka is going through its worst economic crisis since its independence in 1948, which follows successive waves of COVID-19, threatening to undo years of development progress.

The oil shortage forced schools and government offices to close until further notice. The reduction in national agricultural production, the lack of foreign exchange reserves and the depreciation of the local currency have fueled the shortages.

The economic crisis will plunge families into hunger and poverty – some for the first time – adding to the half a million people who, according to World Bank estimates, have fallen below the poverty line due to the pandemic.
