Nine WorkSafe BC claims submitted by School District 60 this school year

first_imgSo far this school year, School District 60 has submitted nine WorkSafe BC claims — ranging from back injuries to slips and falls.There are a few more incidents that have not been filed yet, and Supervisor of Safety and Custodial Services Wally Miedema estimates that the amount of cases in total is under 15.He said icy conditions played a part in many of these claims, and called this an ‘average’ amount, considering the entire school year sees up to 20 claims on average.- Advertisement -He told the School Board during yesterday’s Committee of the Whole meeting that he plans to look into more awareness training and providing more safety bulletins to promote injury prevention.One accident had a bus driver off work for a few weeks due to back injuries stemming from an accident — and Miedema confirmed that she had returned to work.How these incidents will factor in to WCB rates percentage-wise and cost-wise is not yet known, but Miedema said he is going to prepare a report with these numbers in the near future.Advertisementlast_img read more

Chinook system across the Peace brings warmer temperatures

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The original usage of the word Chinook was in reference to ‘a wet warm coastal wind in the Pacific Northwest,’ but now it is used to describe systems, like the current one in this area, and this is certainly not the first time its presence has been felt locally, in the middle of winter.Often, a chinook wind in the Peace will push the temperature 10 to 20 degrees above the seasonal norm, and the sustained wind often exceeds 50 kilometres per hour, with peak gusts over 80.However, those readings pale when compared to posts in southern Alberta and the U.S. state of Montana.- Advertisement -The greatest recorded 24 hour temperature change as the result of a chinook wind was on Jan. 15, 1972, when the temperature near Great Falls, Montana — measured on the Fahrenheit scale, rose 102 degrees.On this side of the border, chinooks are most prevalent, not far north of Great Falls, in the zone from Pincher Creek, in the Rocky Mountain foothills, to Lethbridge — where on average close to three dozen chinooks occur each year.In that area, a chinook wind often results in gusts beyond hurricane force — or 120 kilometres per hour, and on Nov. 19, 1962, there was one, which resulted in a gust recorded at the Lethbridge Airport weather station of 106, miles per hour — or 171, kilometres per hour.Advertisement That was back in the days when temperatures in Canada were also recorded in Fahrenheit degrees, and during that same hour the temperature in Pincher Creek rose 74 degrees, from two below zero to 72 above zero.Putting that in today’s terms — it’s a 41 degree jump in one hour, from minus 19 to plus 22, and it makes what’s occurred here in the past week — a temperature increase of about 20 degrees — pretty pedestrian in chinook terms.Still, we need go back only 28 years to determine that’s also pretty remarkable since on this day in 1988. Our airport weather station posted the one day January snowfall record, of 21.4 centimetres — more, than the month-to-date total, this January.last_img read more

La Liga side plot shock swoop for Man United striker

first_img1 Sevilla are lining up a shock move for Radamel Falcao if Manchester United decide not to sign the forward at the end of the season.Falcao joined Manchester United on a season-long loan last summer with a view to a permanent deal at the end of the current campaign.However, the Colombia international has struggled to assert himself at Old Trafford as he continues his comeback from a knee injury – scoring three goals in 12 Premier League appearances.It is still uncertain whether Manchester United will exercise their right to buy Falcao from Monaco at the end of the season.And if they don’t, according to Spanish news outlet fichajes.net, Sevilla are planing an audacious move for the 28-year-old.Other clubs around Europe have also expressed an interest in Falcao’s services, who has three years remaining on his current contract with Monaco.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger fears Premier League will be damaged by Brexit

first_img Arsene Wenger 1 Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has warned the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union could have a lasting effect on the Premier League.The Frenchman professed his surprise at the result of June’s EU referendum which saw the country vote in favour of Brexit – with the UK planning to withdraw membership as a result.Football Association chairman Greg Dyke has said it would take two years to know just what consequences the vote could have on English football while Premier League officials said the global appeal of the division ‘will continue to be the case regardless of the referendum result’.Wenger, who has been in charge of the Gunners for nearly 20 years, believes the effects will not be felt straight away but that leaving the EU could impact upon the Premier League in the future.“It worries me, it shocks me too,” the 66-year old told France Football.“Nobody knows how exactly this is going to translate into a practical plan. Nobody really knows where we are going.“But the shock, is that we discover that in England there is a majority of people who want to leave the European Union.“The players will see their wages come down a bit and the competition with Germany, for example, will be stronger.“In my opinion, it is overwhelmingly in the long-term that there are questions to be answered. The way in which England will leave the European Union will dictate the future of the Premier League.“If the league becomes less attractive, the broadcasters will offer less money for the rights, club revenues will decrease and the Premier League will suffer the consequences. There lies the problem.”With a new multi-billion pound television deal coming into force for the new season and beyond, Premier League clubs should still be able to afford the continent’s best players.But Wenger, who has so far this summer splashed in excess of £30millon on Switzerland international Granit Xhaka and agreed a deal in principle to sign Japanese striker Takuma Asano, believes Britain’s exit from the EU could impact the appeal of a move to the Premier League.“We thought that one day the best players from Real and Barca would say ‘I also want to go to England because everyone is over there’,” he added.“All of that is now uncertain and Brexit is a spanner in the works. It will have consequences, not in the very short term, but in the long term, yes.“The big English clubs have the means to keep hold of their biggest assets. The most important thing lies elsewhere. Currently, the league is seen as the most attractive one and that image could disappear.”last_img read more

Jokinen’s move gets Stars over Bruins

first_img Jokinen, a teammate of Thomas’ in Finland four seasons ago before the pair played against each other last year, slid the puck across the crease before reaching back and tucking it into the net. “Tim Thomas played in the same league as me last season, so I had to change something,” said Jokinen, a perfect 5-for-5 in shootout chances this season. “On the bench before the shootout, I was talking to (backup goalie) Johan Hedberg and he said that I should try something new.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita Stars goalie Marty Turco made 26 stops before turning aside Patrice Bergeron, Marco Sturm and Sergei Samsonov in the shootout. Thomas, making his first start since April 5, 2003, made 37 saves before the shootout. The Stars improved to 5-0 in shootouts, while the Bruins dropped to 0-3. The Stars tied the score at 1 when Sergei Zubov completed a two-on-one break with Mike Modano 8:42 into the third period by firing a wrist shot inside the right post. The Bruins took a 1-0 lead on Milan Jurcina’s goal 6:05 into the second period. BOSTON – Jussi Jokinen figured Boston goalie Tim Thomas knew what to expect, so he gave him a completely different move. Jokinen scored the only goal of the shootout to lift Dallas to a 2-1 victory over the Bruins on Saturday, the Stars’ season-high sixth straight win. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
