Battle Ground woman held in death of motorcyclist

first_imgA Battle Ground woman accused in the death of a motorcyclist she rear-ended while he was stopped at a traffic light Friday told investigators “she did not know how the crash occurred and said the motorcycle came out of nowhere,” court records state.Investigators say they believe Regina Mae Milam, 60, was under the influence of a drug at the time of the crash. A preliminary breath test found she had no alcohol in her system. However, Milam’s speech was slow, she slurred her words and repeated herself, her eyes were bloodshot and pupils constricted, and she performed poorly on field sobriety tests, according to an affidavit of probable cause. Her blood was seized for toxicology testing; those results are pending.Milam appeared Monday in Clark County Superior Court on suspicion of vehicular homicide. Despite Milam’s lack of a criminal history, Judge Jennifer Snider set Milam’s bail at $100,000, citing concerns for community safety. She will be arraigned Aug. 16.Authorities have not yet identified the motorcyclist. But family and friends identified him as 20-year-old Andrew Harig, according to a GoFundMe account.“Andrew was an amazing young man. His kind heart and caring nature could be felt by all who knew him,” the memorial fund states. “He excelled at everything he did. If you called him for help at any time of the day, he would be there without question.”last_img read more

OHSU approved to resume heart transplant program

first_imgPORTLAND — OHSU Hospital has revealed the names of the three cardiologists it hired this summer to restart the hospital’s heart transplant program.The announcement comes with days left before a deadline that would require the hospital to go through a lengthy recertification process. Now the program must perform a transplant to retain its status with the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.The United Network for Organ Sharing, which is a national body that organizes and regulates organ transplants, gave a go-ahead to OHSU to start transplanting hearts again, according to OHSU.Transplant programs need at least one experienced doctor to be approved by the network. OHSU hired Johannes Steiner into that role.Steiner comes from Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington.He is joined by two junior cardiologists: Nalini Colaco from the University of California San Francisco, and Luke Masha from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.“With the successful recruitment of cardiologists from some of the preeminent programs in the country, we are pleased to resume the full spectrum of care for Oregonians with advanced heart failure in need of heart transplantation,” said OHSU President Danny Jacobs in a statement.Oregon’s only heart transplant program shut down in August last year when all its cardiologists quit. Transplant surgeons followed.Jacobs called for internal and external reviews of the heart transplant program and how it fit into the hospital more broadly.The head of the Knight Cardiovascular Institute, Sanjiv Kaul, stepped down from his leadership position months later. Officials said that there could be more significant management changes once a new program head is hired.last_img read more

Cascarino Solskjaer may sell Pogba this summer

first_imgOle Gunnar Solskjaer may decide to cash in on Paul Pogba this summer should he become the permanent Manchester United manager, says Tony Cascarino.The French midfielder had a low-key outing in Saturday’s FA Cup exit at the hands of Wolves upon scoring nine goals and eight assists in his opening 20 games under caretaker boss Solskjaer.Following a 2-0 Premier League defeat to Arsenal, Solskjaer was handed a second consecutive loss at Molineux as Wolves defeated United 2-1 in a quarter-final tie following goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota.And former Chelsea striker Cascarino wasn’t the least bit impressed by Pogba’s display.“Pogba has done brilliantly since Solskjaer came in but against Wolves, on Saturday, he reminded me of the in-and-out player that he was under Jose Mourinho,” Cascarino wrote in his column for The Times.“He was doing what he liked at times but not affecting the opposition. I don’t know whether the past few weeks are as good as it gets with him.”English media claim that Solskjaer will be named the permanent United manager during the international break following a strong start in the Old Trafford dugout.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.The Norwegian has won 14 of his opening 19 matches in charge and lost just three as United reached the Champions League quarter-finals and returned into the thick of the Premier League top-four battle.In light of this, Cascarino has suggested that Solskjaer may decide to get a nice fee by selling the inconsistent Pogba in favour of signing someone more reliable.Cascarino added: “If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gets the Manchester United job in the summer, Paul Pogba will present one of his biggest dilemmas.“If so, Solskjaer may wish to cash in on him for a lot of money. I would be tempted to replace him with someone he can trust a bit more.“It will be a real challenge of Solskjaer’s management skills.”Pogba is currently away on international duty for France, who will take a trip to Moldova on Friday for their first EURO 2020 qualifier in Group H before hosting Iceland in Paris three days later.WOLVERHAMPTON, ENGLAND – MARCH 16: Paul Pogba of Manchester United reacts following defeat in the FA Cup Quarter Final match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester United at Molineux on March 16, 2019 in Wolverhampton, England.

If anything goes wrong, a human pilot steps in and takes over the controls from a remote station.The EHang currently costs around US $340,000 but the company hopes to eventually reduce the price to around $110,000.“The idea is that in the future [traveling in] this vehicle will be much cheaper than a taxi because in a taxi you pay for gas, the driver and maintenance due to the wear and tear of the car . . .” Wilmes said.The CEO said that in the future, passenger drones could be a solution to traffic congestion in Mexico’s large cities.To that end, Wilmes plans to visit several cities around the country in 2020 to talk about the viability of introducing passenger drones.Chinese-made autonomous aircraft carries two passengers“We want to show that the Chinese are already flying [in passenger drones], that this is a reality. We’re committed to teaching about it and it will be up to Mexicans to decide what they will do with this technology . . . With a long-term vision and a lot of innovation, it will have a productive and positive impact,” he said. Source: MNDcenter_img According to Mexico News Daily, a Tulum-based real estate developer will bring the first passenger drone to Mexico before the end of the year.Nico Wilmes, CEO and co-founder of the company Los Amigos Tulum, told the newspaper El Economista that the plan is to offer scenic flights over the Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve as well as lagoons, cenotes and archaeological ruins located in and around Tulum, Quintana Roo.“Everyone goes to Tulum for [new] experiences and this will be part of that,” he said.The flights will take off from the company’s Panoramic residential development, which opened in May, and the Central Park Lagunas development, which is currently under construction and slated to open in 2020. The latter will feature Mexico’s first landing pad for passenger drones.Wilmes, who moved to Mexico from Germany 10 years ago, said that after he became aware of Chinese passenger drone manufacturer EHang, he went to China to see the unmanned aerial vehicle with his own eyes, take a flight and purchase one.last_img read more

He made his film debut with Tamasha and his TV debut with ‘Gangs of Haseepur’.Abijit Ganguly is one of the faces of the talented comedy culture thriving in India today.  He is popularly referred to as the best looking Bengali man after Bappi Lahiri and is known for his anecdotal style of observational comedy.Excerpts from an interview: Also Read – Add new books to your shelfHow excited are you to be performing at Hard Rock Cafe – Gurgaon? Jeeveshu Ahluwalia (JA) and Abijit Ganguly (AG): We’re damn excited about this show. Always wanted to feel like a rockstar and guess this is the closest it will get for us comedians. Now all that is left is Groupies for stand-up too.How long have you been performing stand-up comedy? JA: I started doing this on 7th March 2013, the best day of my life.AG: I started out in 2010, when I was pursuing my Masters degree from Delhi School of Economics. Kept doing it by the side till 2014, when I was a consultant in Deloitte. And I have been doing it full time since 2014. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveWhere do you get your material? Who is your inspiration?JA: Life in general is a huge inspiration, so I derive my comedy from anything and everything around me.AG: I’m forever making observations and small notes about everything happening around. And in a country like ours, there’s always something or the other happening. Also, I’m married, so that gives enough material.Jaspal Bhatti had a lasting impression on me. It’s brilliant how, stuff he wrote decades back is still relevant today. Among English stand-up comedians, I like Kevin Hart, Jim Jeffries and Louis CK. How would you describe yourself in three words? JA: Short, Fair and CuteAG: Funny, Impulsive, Spontaneous What happens if the audience doesn’t find your quips funny? How do you deal with hecklers? JA: I revel in them. Hecklers can make average shows great.

You keep doing something till they do.   What has been your best gig? JA: The last one, you are only as good or as bad as your last gig. AG: It is hard to pinpoint at a particular show because mostly all public shows go pretty good. But since college shows are mostly fun, I guess performing for the students at IIIT-Delhi, IIT Roorkee, VIT, Ramjas, etc have been pretty amazing. I also had one of my most fun shows when I was performing for a corporate, Value 360. Super set of people, so it was a great show.What would you be if you weren’t a comedian? Who is your favourite comedian?JA: If I wasn’t a comedian, I would have been dead and my favourite comedian is my mum.AG: I would be one of those vagabond travellers or probably a hermit running a cafe somewhere in Kasol. My favourite comedians are Kevin Hart, Chris Rock, Jim Jeffries and Louis CK. What are you working on right now? Say something funny.JA:  If I tell you that then I would have to kill you!AG: The famous Joker from Batman comics said ‘if you’re good at something, never do it for free’.last_img read more
