At Yellowstone National Park a man has always held the highest ranger position—until now. Sarah Davis, a 20-year veteran of the National Park Service, has been named the park’s 18th chief ranger and the first female chief ranger to officially serve in the roll. In her new position, which Davis begins in December, she will oversee law enforcement, search and rescue, emergency services, fires, special permits and trails, among other things.  Watch for pedestrians as you approach areas with parked cars.Check for signs that restrict roadside parking.Choose a spot that will not be damaged by tires on soft ground.Do not park on a narrow shoulder with a steep drop off.Park vehicles with all wheels off the road.Check for oncoming traffic before exiting your vehicle.Know before you go as cell service is limited.

first_imgBy Kay Valle April 15, 2020 About 4,000 elements of the Honduran Armed Forces deliver food to the most vulnerable populations in the country, who are on lockdown as part of the government’s measures to curb the coronavirus spread.Food distribution efforts, which began on March 25 in Tegucigalpa, will continue in other departments to deliver about 800,000 bags of supplies during the first stage. Authorities expect to reach more than 3 million people in poor areas and in the cities with the most coronavirus cases.Honduran service members climb a steep hill in a Tegucigalpa neighborhood to deliver food to families in need, who are in quarantine due to the coronavirus spread. (Photo: Honduran Armed Forces’ Public Affairs)“We are doing everything in our power to save lives,” said Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández in a televised speech. “This includes ensuring that the most vulnerable people have food on their table, so they can be safe, even under the pressure of being quarantined.”The bags of supplies include, among other foods, rice, sugar, ground coffee, beans, flour, margarine, pasta, and instant chicken soup. They also include a hygiene kit with masks, antiseptic gel with alcohol, soap, toilet paper, and information about the coronavirus.The Logistics Directorate of the Armed Forces’ Joint Chiefs of Staff has been carrying out the food delivery plan day and night, executed by elements of the Humanitarian Rescue Unit (UHR, in Spanish), who are highly qualified to confront all kinds of challenges, such as traveling in hard-to-reach areas.“Some areas can only be reached on foot; our soldiers climb hills carrying the bags,” Air Force Colonel Yuri Chávez, director of the Armed Forces Public Affairs, told Diálogo.According to Private Luis Miguel Rivas, assigned to the Honduran Army’s UHR that has been distributing food in Tegucigalpa, the blessings that service members receive when delivering supplies are worth the steep hill climbs. “They remain in our hearts and give us the energy to continue delivering food,” Pvt. Rivas told Diálogo.While Pvt. Rivas, like his military comrades, has left his children and his family behind, he expressed pride in serving the Honduran population and providing support to people in need at a time of crisis. “I remember a special case, in the Los Pinos colony, Tegucigalpa; an elderly woman had eight people under her care. It made me really sad knowing how much need people have,” the soldier said.According to World Bank data, 60 percent of the 9.2 million Hondurans live in poverty, and in rural areas about one in five Hondurans lives in conditions of extreme poverty.In addition to food distribution, the Armed Forces have mobilized drinking water tanks to supply Tegucigalpa’s residents, who are undergoing a severe water shortage due to the drought that affected the country in late 2019. Since early April, the Armed Forces have also been manufacturing around 3,000 masks per day, while a team of engineers is working on prototype respirators to equip health centers.last_img read more

first_imgBy now, one win or one loss means little to the Dodgers’ collective confidence. But for Avilan, who had allowed a .345 batting average to right-handed hitters entering the weekend, two big outs on an August afternoon can mean a lot.“That gives you a lot of confidence, especially because I had an opportunity to get out of that inning in that situation, the eighth, winning by one,” he said. “It’s really good for your confidence.”That, more than one game, might bear fruit for the Dodgers come October. The count was full when Pirela, a .295 hitter, swung and missed at Avilan’s 95-mph fastball off the outside corner. Solarte grounded out weakly on a changeup, the sixth pitch he saw in the at-bat.“With that part of the order and (Avilan) having not pitched, I trust him in that spot,” Roberts said. “To get the top three guys and potentially the fourth and fifth guy, I felt that it was Avilan’s inning.”Avilan said he was well-rested after the long layoff. Perhaps his wife was not, after giving birth to the couple’s first child, Sebastian, on Monday. They’re in Miami while Avilan auditions to become the primary left-handed reliever out of the Dodgers’ bullpen. LOS ANGELES >> Dodgers pitcher Luis Avilan hadn’t thrown a pitch in nine days before he took the mound in the eighth inning Sunday against the San Diego Padres. In the blink of an eye, the tying runner was on third base with one out. The Padres’ No. 3 and No. 4 hitters were due to bat, both from the right side of the plate against the left-handed Avilan. No one was warming in the Dodgers’ bullpen.When you lead your division by 18 games on Aug. 13, this is what passes for high drama.Come October, Dave Roberts might manage the Dodgers with more caution. Sunday he challenged Avilan, and the pitcher responded by striking out Jose Pirela and retiring Yangervis Solarte on a groundout. The Dodgers held on to win, 6-4.Justin Turner hit a pair of home runs, Yasmani Grandal added another, and the Dodgers improved the major leagues’ best record to 83-34. Starting pitcher Kenta Maeda (11-4) won his fourth consecutive decision, buoyed by the Dodgers’ five-run fourth inning. “There’s another reason why I keep coming to the park and doing my best,” he said.Maeda allowed four runs (three earned) in 5 1/3 innings. He walked one batter and struck out eight. Cory Spangenberg tagged him for two home runs, including a first-inning blast that gave San Diego a 2-0 lead, but Maeda allowed just two singles otherwise.Since June 9, when Maeda was temporarily demoted to the bullpen and recorded a save, he’s lowered his ERA from 4.95 to 3.76. Only eight National League pitchers, including teammates Clayton Kershaw and Alex Wood, have won more games than Maeda (11).After the first inning Sunday, Grandal said, “I pretty much told (Maeda) to stop shaking and just concentrate on locating. By doing that, we took everything aside from what we want to throw outside of the equation and he just concentrates where he wants to throw to me.”After San Diego starter Luis Perdomo (6-7) did not allow a baserunner for three innings, the Dodgers scored five runs in the fourth inning to take a 5-2 lead. All five runs scored as a result of home runs by Turner and Grandal.Turner also hit a solo home run in the bottom of the eighth inning against Jose Valdez. It was the seventh multi-homer game of Turner’s career. Three have come this season, including two in the last week.“One of ‘em was in Arizona, where the ball flies really well,” Turner said. “The other one was a day game in Dodger Stadium, where the ball flies a lot better than a night game at Dodger Stadium. I’m just trying to take good at-bats and hit balls hard. When it’s daytime here, you get it up in the air, it’s got a pretty good chance to get out of here.”Turner leads the National League with a .346 batting average. He has 17 home runs.Dodgers left fielder Chris Taylor made a diving catch in the ninth inning to rob Wil Myers of a potential hit. That helped preserve Kenley Jansen’s perfect ninth inning — his second save in as many nights and his 32nd this season.The only thing that can slow down the Dodgers now is a day off, and they’ll get two this week — one Monday, another Thursday. This is not hyperbole. The Dodgers haven’t won fewer than three games in a week since April 16-22. That includes the week of the All-Star Game in July, when they played three times and did not lose.For the season, the Dodgers are winning more than 70 percent of their games (a .709 clip, to be exact). The Houston Astros’ .615 winning percentage is the next-best in baseball — an unusual 11-game gap between the sport’s two best teams.Sometimes, like in the eighth inning Sunday, it’s easy to appreciate the Dodgers’ mastery of a difficult task. Often, though, they make it look easy. Grandal said the players don’t take it for granted.“A lot of teams can talk about executing a plan and at times during a game they get away from it,” he said. “With us, you can have a no-hitter, a perfect game going through three or four innings. At some point we’re going to get you. We’re not going to deviate from the plan. We’re going to stick with it.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
