Orkney researchers have found the vessel used by HMS Royal Oak sailors to escape the sinking battleship in Scapa Flow.While the whereabouts of the wreck of HMS Royal Oak, which sank in the first weeks of the World War II, are known, researchers struggled to locate the battleship’s steam pinnacle in which some of the sailors escaped.Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology (ORCA), the University of the Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute and SULA Diving announced they can now confirm the position of the missing pinnace.HMS Royal Oak was a Royal Navy battleship which was moored in Scapa Bay as an anti-aircraft platform to help defend a vital radar station on the cliffs. On the night of 13 October German submarine, U-47 manoeuvred into Scapa Flow and finding the Royal Oak at anchor fired torpedoes which led to the sinking of the huge ship. 834 men were lost of the 1,200 crew on-board with the few survivors struggling in the cold oil-covered water.Research shows that two 50-foot picket boats were on onboard HMS Royal Oak when she was torpedoed. Number 749 was built by J Samuel White of the Isle of Wight and number 752 built by Rowhedge Ironworks, Wivenhoe Shipyard, Essex.Documentary evidence indicates that around 100 crew members abandoned ship via her port side pinnace, which had a lifesaving capacity of 59. The Starboard side pinnace went down with Royal Oak and can be seen on the seabed a short distance from the wreck. The small pinnace had not got up steam so boards were used to paddle the vessel away from the sinking Royal Oak. The pinnace began to rock due to being overloaded and the chief buffer tried to counter the movement by shouting instructions ‘’Lean to starboard, lean to port’. Some on deck were ordered below to make more room as more men tried to climb on board.Dick Kerr who was hanging on the side of the small vessel says, he heard someone start singing ‘Down Mexico way, south of the border’’ and a few others joined in. A short while later the pinnace capsized throwing those on deck into the water and trapping those who had gone below. Some crew scrambled onto the upturned hull but many were lost. The vessel then righted herself, capsized once more and then sank.The location of this little ship was not known – until last month when the Shiptime Maritime Archaeology Project pinpointed the shipwreck on multibeam sonar, 300 metres from the main wreck site. The site was surveyed by Triscom Enterprise as part of the Shiptime Maritime Archaeology Project. The site had been previously side scanned by SULA Diving as part of a survey for OIC Harbours, but the identity of the craft had not then been established. As part of the project, a dive survey was conducted by SULA Diving of Stromness on the contact to establish that this was the missing port side pinnace.

Read Full Story Two out of three Americans would be willing to use digital wearable devices to track health as part of health insurance wellness programs, according to new research co-authored by Eric Ding, visiting scientist in Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health’s Department of Nutrition and a health economist with General Dynamics Information Technology.The study surveyed 997 Americans across 46 states and presented several scenarios for them to consider in determining whether they’d be willing to use a digital health wearable tracking device. The researchers found that the most significant natural motivators for consumers to adopt the use of digital wearable devices included the promotion of healthy behaviors, disease prevention, and the possibility of early disease detection.While study participants were somewhat skeptical about issues pertaining to having their personal health information tracked and how insurance underwriters may use the information, the researchers found that the majority of participants were still willing to adopt wearables, under many financial, data privacy and accuracy-related conditions.In each of the scenarios that study participants were presented with, financial incentives — including cash compensation, insurance premium discounts, and discounts on wellness products — were found to increase the willingness to adopt wearables for participation in many programs.

Free training and Naloxone kits are available locally through:Evergreen Health, 320 Prather Ave., Jamestown – (716) 847-2441Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services – (716) 753-6724Officials say anyone using opioids, whether for recreational purposes or otherwise, can be at risk for overdose. Other risk factors include:Using or taking drugs alone;Mixing opioids with other drugs like alcohol, benzodiazepines (Xanax and Ativan) and prescription stimulants (cocaine and Adderall);Having lower tolerance due to recent detox/drug treatment, incarceration, or illness; andNot knowing what drugs one is consuming such as using heroin cut with fentanyl.“An overdose can happen when the amount of drugs ingested causes suppressed breathing in a way that oxygen cannot reach vital organs, and the body begins to shut down,” said officials. “It is important to note that an overdose can occur anywhere from 20 minutes to two full hours after drug use.”Signs of an overdose include:Face is clammy to touch and has lost color;Blue lips and fingertips;Non-responsive to his/her name or a firm rub to the sternum (Center of the chest) using the knuckles;Slow breathing, erratic breathing, or no breathing at all;Deep snoring or a gurgling sound, what would be described as a “death rattle;” andHeartbeat is slow or has stopped.If you suspect an overdose, call 911 immediately.
