first_imgMarathon Runner Rescues Drowning Man and Dog Kellner threw off her running shoes and swam out to the man and dog, who both initially clung onto her. The weight of both of them was too much for Kellner which led her to make the difficult decision of pushing off the dog. The dog luckily began to swim back to shore as Kellner drug back the man. Kellner stayed with the man until EMT’s arrived to take him in for observation. Mysterious Neurological Disorder is Sickening Florida Panthers In four counties in Florida, camera traps have recorded cats stumbling and collapsing to the ground in various stages of the illness. Based on what scientist are seeing in the footage, the disorder hits kittens the hardest. State and federal wildlife officials are working to determine the root cause of the sickness and prevent a possible epidemic before it spreads. Florida wildlife officials are asking for the public’s help in figuring out what’s disabling wild cats in the state. Submit observations at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Panther Sightings page. Katie Kellner, 28, a member of the BAA racing team, was running part of the Boston Marathon course at the Chestnut Hill Reservoir in Brighton when she noticed a man and a dog in the water. Short after Kellner spotted them, the man’s head started bobbing and he began shouting for help. A mysterious neurological disorder that has stricken panthers and bobcats in the sunshine state over the past two months has increasingly raised concern over the past year. No one knows what causes it or if theirs a way to cure the already endangered animals. The man and dog are expected to be just fine thanks to Kellner, who not only became a hero but who also finished the remaining 5 miles of her run that same day.last_img read more

‘Bundesliga has done it, why can’t we?’ – Lyon President wants decision to end season early reversed

first_imgPresident of French Ligue 1 club, Lyon, Jean-Michel Aulas has urged French authorities to reverse their decision to end the current season early.PSG were crowned French Champions for the 2019-20 season following the premature termination of the campaign due to the COVID-19 pandemic.The French Football Federation decided to recognise the current league standings as final.The German Bundesliga’s restart had increased the hopes of other leagues that they can also continue their truncated campaigns, with plans far advanced to resume the seasons in England, Italy and Spain.Aulas believes football in the country would face an “unprecedented economic and social crisis” should the decision to end the season remain in place.“The Bundesliga resumed matches on 16 May, Spain will resume matches on 8 June. Italy, Russia and Portugal have resumed collective training and England is working on a resumption after 19 June. How can France not be downgraded very quickly and see its professional football devalued?” He said in a letter to France’s Prime Minister and Sports Minister.Aulas believes that like the other European countries, the French league can gradually work towards a restart.“Many developments and hopes are expected on this date, so that France can gradually regain a good dynamic. Could we imagine that 2 June is also a great opportunity to rectify the mistake concerning French football and to allow, with a health protocol used everywhere, a gradual resumption of training and, why not, a resumption of the 2019-20 season over the months of July or August?”France banned all sporting events, including those behind closed doors, until September effectively ending any possibility of resuming the current league season.Paris St-Germain were 12 points clear of Marseille at the top of Ligue 1, with 10 games to play, although PSG had one outstanding match as well.It was Paris club’s third straight league title.Lyon were in seventh place and miss out on a Europa League place.With football in the country being frozen since mid-March, there had been hopes that the season could resume in June.However, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said the decision to ban sports was to ensure compliance with social distancing directives.“The 2019-20 season of professional sports, including football, will not be able to resume. It will be possible, on sunny days, to practice an individual sporting activity outdoors, obviously respecting the rules of social distancing,” he said.“It will not be possible, neither to practice sport in covered places, nor team or contact sports.”Championnats pro terminés.
