first_imgThe society is behind on their Annual Milk & Miles Fundraiser which is an essential campaign to ensure their program and society can continue to do the work they do.The ‘Milk’ refers to the intake of new cubs and the milk and food they will need to be nourished and grow and the ‘Miles’ refers to the gas required during transportation.Currently, there are 30 black bears and two grizzlies that require funding as they are being released currently across B.C., back to these bears home areas in which they were found. The two grizzlies are going back to Bella Coola which includes the gas to drive to the connecting point and $4000 per bear/ helicopter flight.Langen says they greatly appreciate anyone that shares their fundraising events as it is so important to them and the bears they continue to receive funding to continue rehabilitating and saving these bears.Advertisement To view the FB Page; CLICK HERE To view the Website; CLICK HERE The NLWS is on the 3rd Season of their TV series, CLICK HERE FORT ST.

As of recent the Rescue has been to Fort St. John to receive young bear cubs to help give them a second chance at life.The NLWS runs solely on donations which is quite a feat as they have taken on the responsibility of rescuing, raising, rehabilitating and releasing these majestic creatures back to the locations in which they were found.Advertisementlast_img read more

We lost two games by one point. It’s not like we’re getting blown out. The game against Alaska, we got blown out, but before that, games against NLEX and Star were decided by just one possession,” he said. “I felt like we’re not playing bad even though we’re at 3-3. We’re always one possession away.”Ross agreed that looking back, the Beermen made a mistake on replacing Wendell McKines with Terik Bridgeman.But with Terrence Watson now in the fold, he believes that San Miguel is back to its old dominant self as it seeks to make it to the top four and ultimately capture the Grand Slam.“When we changed imports, I guess you could say they made the wrong decision, but I felt we’re playing good enough to win games. We’re just not making plays at the end of the game. But now that we got an import that competes and fits in well with us, plus we’re getting healthy and coach is finding our way with our rotation, then we’re starting to play a little bit better which is causing us to win games,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT “I was just taking the challenge,” shared Ross on Sunday. “He was really a prolific import. He puts his shirts on like I put my shorts on in the morning, so I just go out there and compete.”It may seem like a mismatch but the veteran guard showed he is the right man to slow down Brownlee, who was limited to just 14 points on 7-of-18 shooting from the field.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutRoss, who had four steals, was also stellar on the offensive end with 20 points, four rebounds and five assists.“We’re desperate for a win and Ginebra is playing great basketball, so I’m just happy that we’re able to pull this win out,” he said. “Everyone played well.

World Cup 2018: Cristiano Ronaldo ‘happy’ with 4th goal in Russia

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo stamped his authority on the field as Portugal edged past Morocco in their second Group B game in Moscow.The Portuguese scored in the fourth minute of the match at the Luzhniki Stadium to take his team to the top of the table as of now.Ronaldo drilled in a header from a corner and take his goal tally at the tournament to four and lead the line for the golden-boot award early in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.Morocco did try and put together some good moves over the two halves but ultimately failed to score and lost the match 0-1 to Portugal and are now eliminated from the tournament.The 33-year-old’s fourth goal was also his 85th for Portugal and now he is the leading scorer in world football from an European nation. He overtook Hungarian legend Ferenc Puskas (84 goals)to go on top of the list. They are followed by his compatriot Sandor Kocsis (75) and German great Miroslav Klose (71).2018 FIFA WORLD CUP: FULL COVERAGE Ronaldo has scored 85 international goals now (Reuters Photo)Not only that, Cristiano is now the second Portugal player to net at least four goals at a single World Cup after Eusébio (9) in 1966 and is in second place on the all-time international top scorer list behind Iran’s Ali Daei — and the highest among the active players.With four points in the bag and Morocco almost out, Portugal’s chances of making the next round was handed a slight boost but a lot will depend on the late night kick off between Iran and 2010 World Champions Spain. However, the Real Madrid star is not ready to think about that is happy with the three points from this match.FIFA WORLD CUP: FIXTURES | POINTS TABLEadvertisement”I’m happy I scored the goal but the most important thing is that we won the game. We have to think match by match in order to progress,” said Ronaldo.Before coming into the World Cup, Ronaldo had scored three goals from 70 shots in his previous three World Cup tournaments combined for Portugal (2006, 2010 and 2014). But this year, at the 2018 World Cup, he has scored three goals from his first four shots.Since November 9, 2012, the forward from Madeira has scored in more games for his Portugal than he has not scored in. He has played 55 games since 55 games and has scored in 28 of them. His goal today was the 48th goal since then and Portugal will be hoping their captain and star man continues to rake in the goals as they mount a challenge for the World Cup.Portugal coach Fernando Santos however, was not too pleased with the performance despite the win.”We have to look at this and we have to talk about it,” Portugal coach Santos said. “We lost control of the game, we misplaced a lot of passes, we lost confidence.”It was inexplicable. If in a match against players like they have, if you don’t have the ball, they will wear you down and you get into trouble,” said Santos.But, he was all praise for Ronaldo, who he thinks is like port wine.”Cristiano is like a Port wine,” Portugal coach Santos said about his talismanic captain. “He knows how to refine his capacity and age at his best. He is constantly evolving, contradictorily to the other players.He knows himself and he knows what he can do. What he does now is not what he did three or four years ago, and not what he will be doing in a few years from now,” said the 63-year-old. Rui Patricio made some important saves to keep the scoreline 1-0 in favour of Portugal (Reuters Photo)Goalkeeper Rui Patricio had loads of work to do throughout the match as the North Africans kept finding pockets of space and create opportunities. The new Wolves goalie made some crucial saves to earn three points for his team.”Of course, no World Cup match is easy even against teams that are theoretically weaker,” said Portugal defender Jose Fonte.”Today, again it was the same situation. They are a team which caused a lot of trouble. We knew how to suffer,” he added.last_img read more

Porsches Taycan covered 21281 miles in 24 hours at Nardo

first_img Porsche The reason why those figures, especially the average speed and temperature numbers, matter is that electric vehicles have historically had the problem of losing power and efficiency as their battery packs start to heat up with use. That the Taycan was able to maintain such high average speeds over such a long distance at such high ambient temperatures tells us a lot about the level of engineering that Porsche has put into the Taycan.This is part of why we’re so excited for the first all-electric Porsche, even more so than with other carmakers, because there are very few other organizations that have Porsche’s resources, engineering ability and bull-headed commitment to avoiding compromise.Porsche’s Taycan is slated to make its global debut on Sept. 4.  Share your voice 42 Photos Enlarge ImagePorsche’s electric Taycan managed to travel over 2,000 miles in 24 hours at the Nardo test track in Italy. Porsche Everything that Porsche builds has some kind of sporting pretenses as well as a serious commitment to build quality. To see if its first fully-battery electric vehicle, the Taycan, can live up to Porsche buyers’ expectations, the company decided to take it to the Nardo test track in Italy and run it until it broke.Except it didn’t break. Porsche announced on Monday that the Taycan ran for a nearly continuous 2,128.1 miles in 24 hours with breaks only for fast charging and driver changes and was able to maintain an average speed between 121 and 133 mph. And it was able to do that with track temperatures well above 120 degrees and ambient temperatures of up to 107 degrees.
