Simpsons Premiere Energizes Business Community

first_imgD-oh! Vermont means businesses! Over the past week the Vermont Hospitality Council of the Vermont Chamber of Commerce has served as a clearinghouse, offering opportunities to the business community to market Vermont and their products by rallying around the Simpsons premiere. The Vermont Chamber Hospitality Council reached out to the business community to secure donations for gifts for the premiere, and companies to exhibit at the premiere street fair. The Vermont Chamber supported the Springfield Regional Chamber in their immediate needs to raise funds for security, safety, and sanitation.As part of the effort, the Vermont Chamber Hospitality Council partnered with longtime Vermont Chamber member Radio Vermont to run a day-long promotion awarding two tickets to the Simpsons screening. “Ever since the announcement that Springfield would host the movie, we’ve had a lot of interest. It was great to have the opportunity to offer our listeners a chance to actually be there, and the response to the promotion was tremendous,” stated Eric Michaels, WDEV co-anchor and Radio Vermont General Manager. “People were knocking the door down at 5 p.m. last night to submit a last-minute entry.” Chris Yager of Williston won the tickets.The Vermont Hospitality Council also spread the word that products were needed for gifts in sap buckets. Offers came fast and furious. “Our members know the value of placing their products directly into the hands of 50 Hollywood V.I.P.s,” stated Vicky Tebbetts, Vice President of the Vermont Chamber’s Hospitality Council. As soon as we sent the notice, we were flooded with willing donors. Soon we were wondering how everything would fit in a sap bucket!”Each sap bucket also includes a copy of the Vermont Chamber’s Vacation Guide and Attractions Map, published in cooperation with the State Department of Tourism and Marketing; as well as the Ski and Maple Map, published by the Vermont Chamber, the Vermont Ski Areas Association, and the Vermont Maple Foundation. Collectively these publications market nearly one thousand Vermont hospitality businesses.In addition, many Vermont Chamber member businesses jumped at the offer to exhibit at the street fair, to take place on Saturday directly prior to the premiere.The Vermont Hospitality Council of the Vermont Chamber worked in partnership with the Vermont Grocers’ Association, Vermont Specialty Foods, and the Vermont Farms! Association to offer the opportunity to their members as well. The Vermont Chamber continues to enjoy a close and established relationship with the Vermont Film Commission and the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, two primary organizers of the event. Can’t keep all these partnerships straight? Don’t have a cow, man!last_img read more

Brazil’s Air Force Conducts Combat Rescue Training and Air Show

first_imgFollowing the five days of training, nearly 500 service members put on an air show for residents of Campo Grande and the surrounding region. The Open Doors event brought 35,000 visitors to the Air Base — 10,000 more than in 2014. The service members at Campo Grande trained with H-60 Black Hawk, H-36 Caracal, AH-2 Sabre, H-34 Super Puma, H-50 Esquilo and H-1H Iroquois helicopters and were supported by the First Central Communications and Control Group for the Anti-Aircraft Artillery Brigade. “Only through continual, comprehensive and annual training is it possible to maintain their abilities needed to conduct missions,” Colonel Rodrigues said. From June 29-July 3, 350 service members using 15 airplanes participated in CSAR training at Campo Grande Air Base (BACG) facilities in Mato Grosso do Sul. “The exercise also helps solidify task doctrine among participants,” said Air Force Colonel Rodrigues, who coordinates the annual program that’s FAB’s primary training operation. Civilians got a close view of A-29 Super Tucano and A-1 fighters, C-105 Amazonas transport planes and some of the helicopters involved in the training. Service members simulated search and rescue actions using rappelling and hoisting techniques. During the exercise, each service member performed his or her specific task. The first pilot is responsible for maintaining flight; the second pilot communicates with the control tower and assists the first pilot; the mechanic helps the pilot in checking the aircraft’s instruments; and the equipment operator checks the landing strip, in addition to operating the rescue winch, if necessary. For low-light operations, service members use night vision goggles. “Crew members must be prepared to take actions in wartime or peacetime,” Air Force Colonel Rodrigues said. “I am a big fan of aviation, and my son adored the combat helicopters,” said Leandro Mossa, a 35-year-old banker who, along with his 8-year-old son Miguel, attended Open Doors and visited Camp Grande Air Base for the first time. Miguel was impressed by Brazil’s peace missions, said Mossa, who got a picture of him and his son in Air Force gear sitting inside a helicopter. He also won a panoramic flight in one of the exhibit planes. “Service members must be very well trained in rescuing persons from hostile territory or under enemy control,” said Air Force Colonel Eduardo Rodrigues da Silva, Chief of Staff for the Second Air Force (II FAE), the organization responsible for operational preparations for Air Force Search and Rescue at Ponta do Galeão in Rio de Janeiro. The greatest challenge for the 350 service members from 10 mobilized squadrons at Campo Grande is synchronizing and standardizing their actions. The FAB service members assigned to these units with rotating-wing aircraft suitable for rescue missions participate in this kind of training annually, spending most of the year conducting domestic search and rescue missions on land or sea that often involve helping victims of vehicular or boating accidents. center_img Squadron training includes units from throughout the country By Dialogo July 21, 2015 Very nice. Combat experience always encourages service members. It’s horrifying that humans still think in war. It’s cruel. How could man want to destroy the world and life that God has given us? Everything in this world has a price. If you want to live in peace, always be prepared for war. It’s been like that since the beginning of time. EXACTLY MY FRIEND…!!!! ALWAYS BEING PREPARED and “ADSUMUS”! —– THESE CONDITIONS ARE THE KEY FOR PEACE TO EXIST! Congratulations to the colleagues in the Brazilian Armed Forces for opening this event to the civilian population. It can only encourage young people to love and appreciate the military. ADSUMUS Air show attracts 35,000 visitors Over five days, squadrons from Belém (PA), Santa Maria (RS), Rio de Janeiro (RJ), Anápolis (GO), Campo Grande (MS), Manaus (AM) and Porto Velho (RO) practiced and tested tactics, techniques and procedures for combat search and rescue missions. The training gauges the squadrons’ skills, which include verifying the efficiency of the equipment and crews in their compliance with doctrine manuals. Brazil’s Air Force (FAB) recently participated in Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) training to improve its precision and teamwork during dangerous rescue missions behind enemy lines. Meanwhile, spectators each donated a kilogram of non-perishable food that the Military gave to the needy. Seven tons of food were collected in two days, according to Air Force Colonel Potiguara Vieira Campos, Campo Grande Air Base’s commanding officer. “With this equipment, it is possible to land safely by sight, even at night,” Colonel Rodrigues said. “The event is a healthy integration of civil society and Air Force service members,” Air Force Colonel Rodrigues said. “It was a bit of history, but taught in a very different way.” The Open Doors program helps bring the Air Force closer to the community and motivates young people to join the Armed Forces. “It is part of our doctrine, and we try to communicate positively with citizens with our structure and our equipment,” Air Force Colonel Campos said.last_img read more

Elevated charges becoming more common in fatal overdose cases

first_imgFrom left: Batesville Police Detective Blake Roope, Chief Stan Holt and Prosecutor Ric HertelBatesville, In. — While Nathaniel Walmsley, 36, and James Alvin (Al) Trimnell wait at the Ripley County Jail for their initial court hearing for murder in connection with the overdose death of Rachel Walmsley in July of 2017, prosecutor Ric Hertel explains the decision.Indiana Code 35-42-1-1 says murder charges can be filed against one who knowingly or intentionally kills another human being through dealing a Schedule I, II or II drug. Hertel says the decision was made after consultation with Batesville Police chief Stan Holt, the detective in charge, the Indiana Prosecuting Attorney’s Association and the Indiana Attorney General.Murder charges are becoming more common as more fatal overdose cases involving Fetanyl and carfentanil are confirmed. The legal argument is that many dealers knowingly sold the lethal substances as heroin while knowing the drugs had the potential to kill. Officials in other cases believe holding dealers accountable for deaths caused by their products may deter others. Murder or manslaughter-related charges have been filed in Ohio, Tennessee, Minnesota, Florida and now Indiana.Rachel Walmsley, 36, of Batesville, died July 30 after her husband, Nathaniel injected her with a toxic mixture. Court documents say Walmsley had Trimnell deliver the drugs that day to their Batesville home. An autopsy completed by Dr. Thomas Sozio determined Walmsley died of acute fentanyl and ethanol intoxication.Nathaniel Walmsley and James Alvin Trimnell were arrested Tuesday evening without incident. If convicted for felony murder they could receive 45 to 65 years in prison.last_img read more
