Hoosiers are encouraged to prepare for frigid temperatures during Winter Weather Preparedness Week

first_imgStatewide—The Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) encourages Hoosiers to use Winter Weather Preparedness Week, Nov. 10-16, as an opportunity to properly prepare for upcoming winter weather.During winter, Hoosiers should always monitor local radio, TV stations and social media for weather updates. It is also important to understand the differences between watches, warnings, and advisories:Watch: Winter weather is possible.Advisory: Winter weather will begin soon, but conditions are less serious than a warning.Warning: Severe winter weather will begin soon.The National Weather Service reports 36 Americans died due to cold weather in 2018. Prolonged exposure to bitterly cold temperatures increases the chances of cold-weather illnesses like frostbite and hypothermia. Common symptoms of winter weather-related illnesses include:Uncontrolled shiveringDiscoloration of the skinFatigueWinter Travel SafetyWinter weather creates hazardous travel conditions, and IDHS encourages Hoosiers to limit traveling during severe winter weather as much as possible. If driving is unavoidable, Hoosiers should consider:Downloading the County Travel Advisory Map in the App Store and Google Play Store to see county travel statuses from emergency management agencies across Indiana.Creating an emergency preparedness kit for every vehicle. A few suggested items for kits include blankets, non-perishable food, jumper cables, and spare winter clothing.Schedule an appointment with a mechanic for a thorough check of each vehicle before a winter storm hits. Important items to have checked include brakes, battery, and tires.Home Heating SafetyAlternative heating sources are popular during the winter, but are also one of the leading causes of house fires in the U.S. Indiana State Fire Marshal Stephen Cox urges Hoosiers using alternative heating sources to practice proper heating safety and maintenance:Home appliances, such as ovens, should never be used for heating. Doing so can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.Use only dry, seasoned wood in a fireplace or woodstove to avoid the buildup of creosote. Do not use artificial logs in wood stoves.Keep all flammable materials, such as draperies, blankets, bedding or upholstered furniture, at least three feet away from space heaters and other types of heating equipment.Snow, ice, high winds, and extremely cold conditions are also capable of causing power outages. If the power goes out during winter weather, follow these tips until professionals can make repairs:Gather warm blankets, sleeping bags, and clothing layers to help household members stay warm.Insulate rooms with blankets or other barrier materials over windows and doors.Know how to determine if it is safe to travel and know where to go should the power go out. Identify a friend or family member’s house, or a nearby shelter.For more winter weather preparedness information, visit GetPrepared.in.gov.last_img read more

Former Italy head coach Arrigo Sacchi defends himself against claims of racism

first_imgFormer Milan Coach Arrigo Sacchi says he’s been ‘misrepresented’ after criticising the number of black players in Italian youth teams.Speaking at an awards ceremony in Tuscany, the 68-year-old appeared to take issue with the number of foreign players in the country.Sacchi, who has also coached AC Milan and Real Madrid, was quoted by La Gazzetta dello Sportas saying: “I’m not racist and my history as a coach shows that, but watching at the Viareggio Cup (a youth football tournament) makes me think there are too many players of colour.”Business interests now come first. Italy has no dignity, it has no pride: you shouldn’t have squads including 15 foreigners.”Sacchi has employed black players during his career, with Frank Rijkaard and Ruud Gullit playing alongside fellow Netherlands international Marco van Basten as part of a successful attacking trio at Milan, a factor he highlighted when trying to clarify his comments.”I have been misrepresented, do you really think I’m racist?” he later added in Gazzetta. “I was just saying that I’d watched a match in which there was a team that included four boys of colour.”My history speaks for itself, I’ve always trained teams with diverse players of colour and they won a lot, both at Milan and in Madrid.”I just wanted to underline the fact that we’re losing our national pride and identity.”In November, newly-elected Italian Football Federation (FIGC) president Carlo Tavecchio was banned from involvement with FIFA for six months after making derogatory comments about African players.UEFA imposed a similar sanction on the, 71-year-old but the FIGC cleared him of any wrongdoing.last_img read more

Satara bypoll: suspense over Chavan contesting continues

first_imgSenior Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan, who is being pressed by the top brass of both the Sharad Pawar-led Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and the Congress to contest the Satara Lok Sabha by-election, on Sunday said he would announce his decision in a day or two, even as his supporters urged him to contest the Assembly polls instead.“We will come to a decision in one or two days by taking into account your wishes, by respecting the high command’s opinion as well as my own survey,” the former chief minister said at massive gathering of his supporters in Karad.The meeting had been called to discuss the opinions of Mr. Chavan’s supporters.Earlier, in emphatic representations, the Congressman’s ardent followers unanimously urged him not to contest the Satara by-election but fight and win the Karad South seat in the Assembly polls. “Karad does not wish to be indebted to the ‘kindnesses’ of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) State chief Chandrakant Patil,” was the refrain of Mr. Chavan’s supporters.Mr. Chavan said, “My firm bond with Karad began in 1991 … today, our democracy, our Congress party is in danger as the BJP government is out to destroy democracy.”Mr. Chavan represented Karad thrice as MP before being elected as MLA from Karad South in the 2014 Assembly polls.Mr. Chavan accused the State government of breaking opposition parties by either misusing probe agencies or by buying out opposition leaders and MLAs. “The BJP’s plan is impose a dictatorship of a single party. They want to destroy the ideology of the Congress, but ours is the party of ideals … Karad shall be the centre of the renaissance of a new Congress,” Mr. Chavan said.According to a close aide, Mr. Chavan would be entirely dependent on the NCP for help if he chose to contest the Satara by-election, as only the Karad seat is with the Congress at the moment and the district is predominantly an NCP bastion.“Furthermore, Mr. Chavan’s work is prominent in his Assembly constituency, and people have immense respect for him as a person,” he said.Meanwhile, speaking in Mumbai, NCP State president Jayant Patil, too, acknowledged Mr. Chavan’s reluctance to contest the Satara Lok Sabha by-election.“It appears that he [Mr. Chavan] and his supporters are not very enthusiastic about him contesting the bypoll. We are holding discussions with the Congress leaders and will reach a decision soon, perhaps by Monday afternoon,” Mr. Patil said.The Satara Lok Sabha bypoll has been necessitated by the resignation of former Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MP from Satara, Udayanraje Bhosale, who recently switched alliances to join the BJP. The Election Commission has announced October 21 as the date of the by-election, the same day as the Assembly polls.NCP chief Sharad Pawar, who suggested Mr.Chavan’s name, does not wish to contest the bypoll.last_img read more

Local Government Officials Exploring Strategies to Enhance Operations

first_img Minister of Local Government and Community Development, Hon. Desmond McKenzie, says the staging of the inaugural conference on local governance provides the opportunity to explore strategies aimed at enhancing operations.He noted that with the local authorities being responsible for 75 per cent of the services provided to the public, it is important to review and examine measures to improve the direction of local governance.“The Ministry is responsible for roads, minor water supply, garbage collection, street light, cemeteries, public recreation, markets, butcher licence, infirmaries, community development… you name it.“All these services that the entire country needs require the input of local government, so we must have conferences of this nature to revisit and improve on how we approach matters,” he said while addressing the event being held at the Jewel Grande Montego Bay Resort in St. James.Among the critical areas being addressed at the three-day event, which got under way on July 17, is the enhanced training and sensitisation of staff about their roles and responsibilities. “This should improve the question of accountability to prevent deficiencies in the system,” Minister McKenzie pointed out.He welcomed the involvement of municipal members from other regions and noted that their participation in the conference signals the value of partnerships in strengthening and improving operations in Jamaica.For her part, Acting Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Marsha Henry Martin, shared that the conference is an important milestone for local governance in Jamaica and the wider Caribbean.“At the end of this, we anticipate that the local government practitioners will be rejuvenated and recognise the requirement to be more accountable and responsive to the people,” she said.“A barber in his shop or hairdresser, the butcher, the developer and even the homeowner who desires to get an approved plan, persons who require welfare of cemetery services must engage the local authorities, and we want everyone to benefit from the highest quality of service from local practitioners,” Mrs. Henry Martin pointed out.She said that space has been created for interface and dialogue about these and other matters that are in support of the national growth thrust. Minister of Local Government and Community Development, Hon. Desmond McKenzie, says the staging of the inaugural conference on local governance provides the opportunity to explore strategies aimed at enhancing operations. “The Ministry is responsible for roads, minor water supply, garbage collection, street light, cemeteries, public recreation, markets, butcher licence, infirmaries, community development… you name it.
