Northridge Earthquake Anniversary Prompts Reminders for Pasadena Residents

first_img More Cool Stuff Make a comment Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy This week marks the 23rd anniversary of the 1994 Northridge earthquake — the magnitude-6.7 shaker that caused widespread damage to freeways, office buildings and homes.The cost to rebuild or repair homes has increased by about 170 percent over the past two decades, and authorities estimate that if the Northridge quake occurred today residential damage in the area could be as high as $79 million.“As we commemorate the devastation from 23 years ago, we also need to listen to what is forecast for the future,” California Earthquake Authority (CEA) CEO Glenn Pomeroy said. “The U.S. Geological Survey says there is a 93 percent chance of a magnitude-7.0 earthquake occurring in California in the next 30 years—a massive quake that would be three times as strong as the Northridge catastrophe.“With major earthquakes occurring across the globe, there is a growing sense that our time is coming,” Pomeroy said. “Fortunately, a growing number of Californians are becoming financially prepared for the next big earthquake by taking out an earthquake insurance policy.”In 2016, CEA began offering more coverage choices and deductible options, and larger discounts for retrofitting older houses. Since it was established in 1996, CEA has lowered its rates by more than 55 percent. CEA grew by over 50,000 policyholders last year, a growth rate seven times higher than average over the previous 10 years.“More Californians are becoming aware of the earthquake risk we all face and are taking steps to become financially prepared,” Pomeroy said.Homeowners insurance does not cover damage caused by earthquake shaking. Without a separate earthquake insurance policy, Californians bear the cost to repair or replace alone.“The anniversary of the Northridge earthquake should remind us all that devastating earthquakes have happened in our beautiful state, and they will happen again,” Pomeroy said. “We don’t need to live in fear of the next big earthquake, or the expensive damage it will cause, but we do need to be prepared.”About CEAThe California Earthquake Authority (CEA) is a not-for-profit, privately funded, publicly managed organization that provides residential earthquake insurance and encourages Californians to reduce their risk of earthquake loss.

#VIDEO Inquest hears that baby’s death was avoidable

first_img Previous articleBasketball Ireland: National Cup Round-UpNext articleKicking out the Jams with Bressie’s Urban Dreamers Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie by Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up THE LIMERICK doctor who treated a woman who lost her baby has said that the infant would have been born alive if the mother was kept in hospital.Consultant Gynacologist Dr Mark Skehan told Limerick Coroner’s Court that he saw expectant mother Amy Delahunt a month before her baby died. Both mother and baby were doing well “and nothing was expected to go wrong”.Ms Delahunt (34) from Borrisoleigh Co Tipperary, wept as she recounted the events leading up to the stillborn birth of her daughter Mary Kate Kelly at the Maternity Hospital in Limerick, on May 28 2013.Before she started her evidence, Ms Delahunt asked if she could pass around a photo of Mary Kate “so everyone knows why we are here”.Ms Delahunt was a patient with consultant gynacologist Dr Mark Skehan in Limerick but on May 21, 2013, she was working in Portlaoise when she sought help regarding her concerns over her baby’s reduction in activity in the womb.She learned of four previous infant deaths at the same hospital in Portlaoise after watching a Prime Time investigation programme.Ms Delahunt told the inquest how she and her partner Oliver Kelly had been trying for many years to start a family and were overjoyed when they finally conceived with the help of fertility treatment.The pregnancy continued as normal until 34 weeks, when Ms Delahunt became concerned about lack of foetal movement. Dr Skehan said that he had seen Ms Delahunt one month earlier and all was well and “nothing was expected to go wrong”.On May 21, 2013, she went to the Maternity Assessment Unit (MAU) in Portlaoise hospital, five minutes from the school where she works as a secondary teacher as she was worried about her baby.She was monitored on CTG, a cardio monitor which gives a trace or graph of the baby’s foetal movements and an ultrasound was carried out.Registered midwife Sally Hanford told the inquest how she aired her concerns to the on-call Registrar Dr Chuck Ugezu about three unprovoked decelerations in the baby’s heart rate as picked up in Ms Delahunt’s CTG trace.Dr Ugezu said it was unnecessary to repeat the trace which he said was normal for this period of pregnancy and he performed an ultrasound scan which he said was fine.Ms Hanford said she told Dr Ugezu that he could not stand over the trace and they needed to contact consultant obstetrician Dr Miriam Doyle who was on duty in the maternity ward to review the trace.Ms Delahunt was subsequently discharged and told to keep a check of foetal movements overnight, ahead of her scheduled anti natal appointment in Limerick, the following morning.When she went for the appointment, she was told by midwives in Limerick that they could find not find a heartbeat on the scan, and that’s when she knew her baby girl was gone.“I just wanted them to deliver the baby straight away. I didn’t want to be carrying around a baby bump with a dead baby inside and people thinking I was going to have a healthy baby.”She had to wait six more days before she finally gave birth to baby Mary Kate.Dr Chuck Ugezu, a former registrar at The Midland Regional Hospital in Portlaoise, apologised for the “understandable upset caused”. He also acknowledged he should have insisted she be admitted on the day she presented at Portlaoise, for further observations and for steroid injections and further CTG traces.Consultant Obstetrician Dr Miriam Doyle said she had no recollection of Ms Delahunt on May 21,  2013 or speaking to midwife Hanford about her case. She said that Ms Delahunt should have been admitted.She also agreed that if she had been kept in hospital, the baby would have born been alive, although it was uncertain how healthy.During the second day of evidence, Dr Skehan said he agreed that Amy Delahunt should have been immediately admitted to Portlaoise hospital.Many of the staff in Limerick were in tears over the death of little Mary Kate and all they could do was “help the mother and try and get through the situation. It is terribly sad and quite difficult in the hospital when there is such an occurrence”.Pathologist, Dr Peter Kelehan, said the cause of death was uncertain but delayed maturation of the placenta, a lateral insertion and hyper coiling of the coil could have contributed.The jury returned a verdict medical misadventure and a number of recommendations were made including that HSE promote lifelong learning amongst medical staff; maternity medical staff should receive adequate and ongoing CTG trace training; the HSE national policy on open disclosure should be implemented in full; there should be clear written instructions on the escalation of care; that patients with non-reassuring CTG traces or with concerns over foetal movements should not be discharged from hospital unless done so by a consultant; expectant mothers discharged from hospital should be given clear written instructions on monitoring foetal movement and that the HSE should publish and be obliged to adhere to adequate staffing levels in all hospitals.Speaking afterwards, the parents of Mary Kate Kelly had these comments.

Spencer named Lions tour manager

first_img The Lions announced 66-year-old Spencer’s post on Wednesday, together with ex-Ireland wing Tom Grace being made chairman of the British and Irish Lions board in a role that sees him succeed Welshman Gerald Davies. Spencer will become the third English Lions tour manager in rugby union’s professional era, following Fran Cotton (South Africa 1997) and Bill Beaumont (New Zealand 2005). Yorkshireman Spencer won 14 England caps between 1969 and 1971, captaining his country on four occasions. He also toured New Zealand with the 1971 Lions. He has been Rugby Football Union representative on the Lions board since 2008, while he has also served on the Six Nations Council and with the International Rugby Board. “It is a huge privilege and honour to represent the Lions as tour manager, 46 years after I did so as a player,” he said. “My predecessor Andy Irvine did a fantastic job in Australia (2013), and I am looking forward to following in his footsteps.” The Lions’ 2-1 Test series triumph in Australia two years ago was their first since defeating then world champions South Africa in 1997. Their last New Zealand tour nine years ago, which was headed by England’s World Cup-winning supremo Sir Clive Woodward, produced a 3-0 Test series whitewash. Grace, meanwhile, toured South Africa with the 1974 Lions and won 25 caps for Ireland, eight as skipper. “It is an honour to be appointed chairman of the British and Irish Lions,” he said. “The Lions represent the core values of our sport, and I am grateful for the opportunity to represent them as chairman. “It is a privilege to take over from Gerald Davies, who has been a wonderful ambassador for the Lions as a player, tour manager and more recently as chairman.” Press Associationcenter_img Former England captain John Spencer has been appointed as British and Irish Lions tour manager for the trip to New Zealand in 2017.last_img read more

Dundee prevail in thriller against Edinburgh

first_imgThe Dundee Stars won a remarkable Elite League shootout 11-9 against the Edinburgh Capitals on Sunday as Bobby Chaumont and Trevor Gerling traded hat-tricks. Gerling added to the lead but by the time he completed his treble, Chaumont had scored twice with John Dolan and Gray, for a second time, also on target. Chaumont’s third proved the game-breaker before Doug Clarkson rounded off a wild win. The Nottingham Panthers-Sheffield Steelers grudge match was another high-scoring affair, the South Yorkshire side coming out on top 6-4. Robert Dowd scored twice while former NHL player Guillaume Desbiens netted his first Steelers goal. The Coventry Blaze beat the Cardiff Devils 4-1, the Manchester Storm won 3-0 against the Belfast Giants and two goals from Stefan Meyer helped the Braehead Clan past the Fife Flyers 3-0. Gerling and Callum Boyd gave Edinburgh an early two-goal lead but Brett Switzer’s double left the scores tied after the first period. Taylor Dickin restored Edinburgh’s lead and though Lou Dickenson and Riley Wetmore put Dundee ahead for the first time, Craig McCallum, Dickin, Ryan Hayes and Kyle Bigos put the Capitals up 7-5 after two as only Jason Gray responded. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Le’Veon Bell’s best fits in 2019 free agency: Dolphins, Jets, Raiders make most sense

first_imgEven before Le’Veon Bell chose not to report to the Steelers and sit out the entire 2018 NFL season, one thing was already a near certainty: The 27-year-old running back will play for a different NFL team in 2019.Bell is set to become an unrestricted free agent this week. While 27 near the older side for his position, he has limited wear after five incomplete regular seasons and will be refreshed after his year away from the field. Le’Veon Bell free agency 2019: Good fitsAFC: Ravens, TexansNFC: BearsBefore Lamar Jackson took over at QB, Baltimore was a pass-happy team in 2018 with limited power-running results from Alex Collins. The Ravens were disappointed enough in their backs to trade for Ty Montgomery, and now they are in line to field a new offense next season with Joe Flacco out of the picture. In Bell, Jackson would have a dangerous outlet in the short passing game. The Ravens also should think about how Bell, a former player for their AFC North rivals, will be motivated to help them.In Houston, Lamar Miller is starting to look pedestrian, and once-promising D’Onta Foreman is recovering from a torn Achilles. Bell could take the Texans’ offense to the next level alongside Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins.Chicago tried to plug the square peg that is Jordan Howard into the round hole that is Matt Nagy’s wide-open offense, but it didn’t work. The Bears love Tarik Cohen, but he is best suited to be a pure receiving back. Bell is a versatile workhorse who could handle both the power running and the spread receiving. Imagine Bell supporting Mitchell Trubisky and all his weapons.And the Bears, like the Rams, realize it is smart to be aggressive and load up around a first-round QB who’s still on his rookie deal.Teams that will be tempted to sign Le’Veon Bell in free agencyAFC: BillsNFC: BuccaneersBuffalo (passing offense) and Tampa Bay (passing defense) have other priorities in free agency. The Bills also have LeSean McCoy signed for one more year at $6 million. The Bucs need help at running back, but the Jameis Winston project under new coach Bruce Arians is the bigger quandary. NFL FREE AGENCY: Tracking signings, rumorsBell might not break the bank the way he wants in free agency, but somebody will compensate him with good guaranteed money in relation to the market.The question: What teams will be willing and able to spend on Bell, and what teams can we rule out? (2019 salary cap projections via Overthecap.com)Le’Veon Bell free agency 2019: Best fitsAFC: Dolphins, Jets, Raiders As well as Frank Gore played in Miami last year, he will hit free agency before his age-36 season. And as talented as Kenyan Drake is, the Dolphins might not trust him enough to give him consistent double-digit touches. Bell could provide Miami a hard-running veteran who could run for chunk yardage and be dynamo in their passing game. And based on social media, we know he doesn’t mind Miami.The Jets in 2018 did not get justifiable returns from Isaiah Crowell, and Bilal Powell will be a 30-year-old free agent coming off neck surgery. Elijah McGuire and Trent Cannon have flashed, but they are change-of-pace types. Sam Darnold needs a legit back to ease the pressure, as Baker Mayfield (Nick Chubb), Josh Rosen (David Johnson) and Josh Allen (LeSean McCoy) had to varying degrees as rookie first-round QBs. Bell could be a major asset for new coach Adam Gase.The Raiders lost Marshawn Lynch to a season-ending groin injury last year, and at 32, he is unsigned for 2019. Doug Martin ran hard in Lynch’s place, but he also was on a one-year deal. Given how much coach Jon Gruden seems to love big-name veterans in his offense, he would sign off on making Bell a hefty offer.MORE: Bell and Brown are gone, but Steelers’ failures with them will endure Teams that can afford Le’Veon Bell but don’t need himAFC: Colts, Titans, BroncosNFC: Redskins, Packers, 49ersThe Colts suddenly have a nice young committee with Marlon Mack, Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins. The Titans suddenly are feeling better about their Dion Lewis-Derrick Henry combination.The Broncos and 49ers have proved they can find undrafted gems in Phillip Lindsay and Matt Breida, then plug in system power backs to complement them. The Redskins, who will be limited in cap space for 2019, will hope for a healthy rebound from Derrius Guice.Bell might have made sense for the Packers before they finally trusted Aaron Jones enough to let him loose in their offense late in the season.MORE: NFL’s highest-paid playersTeams that can’t afford Le’Veon BellNFC: EaglesBefore the 2018 trade deadline, rumors suggested Philadelphia was interested in keeping Bell in the Keystone State with a midseason trade. The Eagles’ running game struggled all season, in part due to injuries. But coach Doug Pederson likes the committee approach. Bell also is a luxury the Eagles can’t afford in 2019, when, per OverTheCap.com, they will face the league’s worst salary cap situation.Teams that don’t need Le’Veon BellAFC: Patriots, Jaguars, Bengals, Browns, Chiefs, ChargersNFC: Cowboys, Giants, Falcons, Panthers, Saints, Lions, Vikings, Cardinals, Rams, SeahawksThese teams have either drafted a running back they like over the past three years or locked up a young veteran to a lucrative, long-term deal. Bell won’t be hearing a ring tone from any of these 16 teams in 2019.last_img read more
