Wildland Fire Incidents - 8 hours 4 min ago
September 25, 2017 - 9:00 a.m. Fire Information: 541-378-6944 (8:00 am to 8:00 pm) Start Date: August 11, 2017 Cause: Lightning Fuels: Timber, forest litter, grass & shrubsAcres: 43,140 Percent Completed: 60% Current Situation: With the improving weather, warming temperatures and drying of muddy roads and dozer lines, fire suppression repair efforts on the 10 separate wildfires that comprise the Umpqua North Complex made great progress yesterday. Again, the Great Basin Incident Management Team #3 is not saying the fires are completely out. There are still plenty of isolated pockets of unburnt fuel, smoldering stumps and individual downed large logs that will continue to smolder and possibly burn more vigorously as temperatures continue to rise over the next few days within the various fire perimeters. Most are well within containment lines and pose little danger of escaping or spreading outside of containment lines. However, such as in the case of a section of line on the...

Why EMS Stands for The Flag

Flightsafetynet.com - 8 hours 6 min ago
—And why NFL stars should get off their knees.

 

America is the best country in the world.

“Proud to be an American” is more than a catchy slogan.

It’s our way of life.

If you or someone you love serves our country in the armed forces, you get my instant respect and gratitude. No discussion or debate required.

And here’s the best part: I believe most Americans share this viewpoint. Most Americans respect and appreciate those who serve now, and those who served our country in the past.

Why NFL Stars Should Get Off Their Knees

Why should National Football League (NFL) players get off their knees and stand for the national anthem?

Because standing is about respect.

Standing for the national anthem is about showing respect for those who made the ultimate sacrifice and gave their lives for this country. It’s really that simple.

Stand to show respect.

NFL players who kneel before football games do so to draw attention to racism in America. But they disrespect everyone who ever served in uniform by doing so.

NFL players don’t see it that way, because they don’t really see anything through the same lens as regular people. NFL players believe in their cause and believe it’s their right to kneel if they choose.

And you know what? They’re absolutely right. It is their right to kneel.

The constitution and first amendment guarantees this right to every American. The irony is the service men and women who died to give them this right — is the group they’re disrespecting the most, by kneeling. That’s the rub, or at least part of it.

The bigger rub is how NFL players are completely out of touch with average Americans. How NFL players believe their opinions are somehow more valuable than the average American’s opinion.

Newsflash: the average American thinks football players should stick to playing football. The average American thinks NFL players are overpaid and out of touch with reality. The average American thinks kneeling during the national anthem (for almost any reason) is unpatriotic.

But none of that explains why kneeling during the national anthem is stupid.

Why Kneeling is Stupid

Is shining a spotlight on racism important?

Yes, of course.

But bringing attention to racism by disrespecting every American who ever served or died for our country, is a stupid way to do it.

But don’t take my word for it. How do you know kneeling during the national anthem is a stupid way to draw attention to racism? Easy answer. The NFL already proved it.

Colin Kaepernick, a free agent quarterback famous for kneeling before football games, can no longer find work in the NFL.

Why can’t Colin Kaepernick find work? Why won’t an NFL team hire him?

The answer has nothing to do with Colin’s skills as a quarterback. The answer is that Colin Kaepernick is damaged goods. No team will take him because of all the bad publicity that comes with hiring him.

The Cleveland Browns also proved how stupid it is to kneel during the national anthem. You can read how Paramedic and Police unions boycotted the Cleveland Browns opener for kneeling during the national anthem.

Watch the NFL Take a Stand This Week

If you’re bothered by all of this, stand-by for a little poetic justice to come your way this week.

The Pittsburgh Steelers forced the issue center stage.

The entire Pittsburgh Steelers team, except for Alejandro Villanueva, ex-Army Ranger, stayed in the locker room for the national anthem before their game with Chicago.

The backlash was quick and severe.

The American public is irritated and threatening to boycott the NFL. Now the NFL commissioner and team owners really have no choice but to start talking about the issue publicly. Even the president commented about the owner’s lack of control over the situation.

Stand-by to see the NFL commissioner and team owners ‘patriotism’ shine through like no other week this season. Now that their revenue is threatened, you’ll see a whole new appreciation for those who served.

Why EMS Stands for The Flag

It’s easy for Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to stand for the flag.

Why?

Because EMSers are patriots. EMSers live in the real world. EMSers work hard for a lot less money and appreciation than the average NFL player.

But those aren’t the only reasons.

EMSers identify with our service men and women.

EMS is different than serving in the military, but it is about service.

Service is the bond the two communities share.

It’s time for NFL players to stand with EMS and their fellow Americans. It’s time to give respect to those who made the ultimate sacrifice and paid for our freedoms and privileges with their lives.

What do you think? Should NFL players stand for the national anthem? Is it disrespectful not to stand? Leave a comment below. It’s important and we appreciate your input.

NHC Atlantic Tropical Weather Discussion

NWS Weather - 8 hours 6 min ago

000
AXNT20 KNHC 251557
TWDAT

Tropical Weather Discussion
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
1156 AM EDT Mon Sep 25 2017

Tropical Weather Discussion for North America, Central America
Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, northern sections of South
America, and Atlantic Ocean to the African coast from the
Equator to 32N. The following information is based on satellite
imagery, weather observations, radar and meteorological analysis.

Based on 1200 UTC surface analysis and satellite imagery through
1800 UTC.

...SPECIAL FEATURES...

Hurricane Maria is centered near 31.2N 72.9W at 25/1500 UTC or
about 270 nm south-southeast of Cape Hatteras North Carolina,
moving north at 6 kt. Minimum central pressure is 963 mb. Maximum
sustained winds are 70 kt with gusts to 85 kt. Scattered moderate
convection is within 180 nm in the northeast semicircle from the
center. See the latest NHC Forecast/Advisory under AWIPS/WMO
headers MIATCMAT5/WTNT25 KNHC for more details.

Hurricane Lee is centered near 30.8N 49.9W at 25/1500 UTC or
about 770 nm east of Bermuda. Lee drifting slowly to the south-
southwest. Estimated minimum central pressure is 980 mb. Maximum
sustained winds are 80 kt with gusts to 100 kt. Scattered moderate
convection within 90 nm of the center. See the latest NHC
Forecast/Advisory under AWIPS/WMO headers MIATCMAT4/WTNT24 KNHC
for more details.

...TROPICAL WAVES...

A tropical wave extends along 33W/34W from 07N to 20N, moving
west at 10 kt. The wave shows up well in GOES high density winds
in the lower to mid levels of the atmosphere. No significant
convection is associated with this tropical wave.

A tropical wave is in the eastern Caribbean along 65W/66W, from
the U.S. Virgin Islands to central Venezuela, moving west at 10
to 15 kt. The position of the main axis of the wave was aided by
12Z sounding data. The wave is on the southwestern periphery of a
700 mb ridge and the western periphery of an upper- level trough
axis to the east. No significant convection is noted at this time,
but earlier convection was active through the Leeward Islands due
to divergence aloft between the upper ridge and upper trough.

...ITCZ/MONSOON TROUGH...

The monsoon trough extends from Senegal coast near 15N17W to
10N31W. The Intertropical Convergence Zone extends from 09N35W to
07N55W. Scattered moderate convection is from 11N to 19N and east
of 20W.

...DISCUSSION...

GULF OF MEXICO...

A sharp mid to upper-level trough reaches from the Great Lakes to
the western Florida Panhandle, supporting scattered showers and
thunderstorms off the Panhandle coast. A broad surface trough has
formed over the north Gulf related to the mid to upper level
trough. Another surface trough is located over the far southwest
Gulf, the remnant of the overnight troughing that forms off the
western coast of the Yucatan peninsula and drifts westward
overnight. A weak pressure pattern has set up overall, supporting
minimal winds and seas. Little change is expected in overall
conditions. By Tuesday night into Wednesday, easterly flow will
increase slightly into moderate to occasional fresh conditions as
ridging noses in from the lower Mississippi River valley region
into the eastern Gulf waters.

CARIBBEAN SEA...

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are active across much of the
western Caribbean this morning. This activity is enhanced by
divergence aloft on the southeastern edge of a sharp upper trough
reaching into the far northwest Caribbean, and a broad mid to
upper ridge extending from Nicaragua through the Windward Passage.
Northerly flow aloft over the eastern Caribbean is limiting
convection. Surface ridging over the central Atlantic building in
the wake of the tropical wave in the eastern Caribbean will
support fresh to strong trade winds, which will gradually shift
from the southeast Caribbean to the south central Caribbean
through mid week.

...HISPANIOLA...

Slightly drier northerly flow aloft associated with a mid to
upper level ridge across Hispaniola will limit widespread shower
and thunderstorm development, although lower level moisture
remains high, and some development is still possible this
afternoon over higher terrain. Scattered showers and thunderstorm
may form off the south coast tonight, especially ahead of tropical
wave moving into the central Caribbean.

ATLANTIC OCEAN...

A tropical wave is moving across the basin. Refer to the section
above for details. Outside the influence of Maria in the west
Atlantic and Lee in the central Atlantic, surface ridging prevails
across much of the remainder of the region.

SPC Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook

SPC Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook
Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1043 AM CDT Mon Sep 25 2017 Valid 251700Z - 261200Z Previous outlook remains on track and no changes are necessary. See discussion below for more details. ..Leitman.. 09/25/2017 .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0155 AM CDT Mon Sep 25 2017/ ...Synopsis... The persistent upper trough/low centered over the Great Basin will begin to lift northeastward into the northern Plains and adjacent Canadian provinces throughout the period. Northerly mid-level winds of 35 to 45 kt are forecast over much of CA along the western periphery of the upper trough. At the surface, high pressure will remain anchored over the Great Basin and northern/central Rockies through the period, which will support a weak to locally moderate offshore wind event across portions of southern CA. ...Portions of the Sacramento Valley and Adjacent Coastal Ranges of Northern CA... Enhanced mid-level winds, combined with diurnal heating, should allow for modest northerly surface winds to mix to the surface this afternoon across portions of the Sacramento Valley and adjacent Coastal Ranges of northern CA. Sustained winds up to 15 mph appear possible, with stronger gusts occurring at higher elevations. RH values will once again decrease into the 10-20% range given an antecedent dry low-level airmass and diurnal heating. These forecast meteorological conditions combined with continued dry fuels support an elevated designation across this region. ...Portions of Southern CA... Elevated fire weather conditions are ongoing early this morning and will develop again Tuesday morning across portions of southern CA when the surface pressure gradient will be maximized. During these periods, offshore winds will increase to 15-20 mph, with stronger gusts possible in higher elevations. RH values will likely remain low through much of the period owing to downslope warming/drying effects, and overnight RH recovery is forecast to remain poor. 06Z surface observations support these forecast trends, particularly at high elevations where winds are gusting to 25-30 mph and RH lowering to near 20% in a few locations. The continuation of drying fuels across this region supports the elevated area. The lack of an even stronger forecast surface pressure gradient and related winds continues to preclude a critical designation. ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov/fire for graphic product... Read more

New recruitment drive for Police Community Support Officers

Wiltshire Police (UK) - 8 hours 20 min ago

Wiltshire Police is launching its autumn recruitment campaign for Police Community Support Officers - known as PCSOs – who play an important community facing role within Community Policing Teams across Wiltshire and Swindon.

Applications are being accepted until Sunday 15 October 2017 and successful candidates will start training in April 2018.

PCSOs provide a visible patrolling presence, acting as an effective crime deterrent, especially with regard to minor crimes. PCSOs connect schools, community organisations and local authorities, working on issues such as anti-social behaviour and safeguarding vulnerable adults and children.

Wiltshire is a diverse county and the PCSO role can be hugely varied. As well as community liaison, they can also be called on to support operational teams with intelligence gathering for cases, ranging from cracking down on rural and cross border crime, to human trafficking, drugs networks and counter terrorism. 

Successful candidates do not need formal educational qualifications and must be at least 18 years old at the time of application.  Confidence, good communication skills, decision making and problem solving skills are all important.

They will join more than 100 PCSOs, including the latest 11 recruits who began their training at Devizes HQ four weeks ago.  They include Muhammad Hamid, known as Kashif, from Swindon who was previously a taxi driver and Kimberley Orza from Amesbury who is looking forward to her new posting in Salisbury post training.

Kashif said “I wanted to become a PCSO to act as a bridge between communities and the police and help the wider public. Joining the police has made me feel really proud.  I can’t believe I am really here doing my dream job.”

Kimberley used to be a Special Constable before successfully applying to be a PCSO, “I felt that my skills and abilities fitted this role really well. I fancied a change from being an estate agent and wanted to go full time and try something different” she said.

PCSOs work a 37 hour week including shifts. Shift patterns are decided locally, but consist of a mix of day and evening shifts covering a span of 16 hours from 7am to midnight. Weekend working forms part of the shift pattern.

The starting salary is £19,737 per annum rising to £20,763 plus up to 14% shift allowance. Benefits include pension scheme, 22 days annual leave and access to gym facilities and wellbeing services.  Career progression opportunities are good, learning transferable skills for roles such as Police Constable, Local Crime Investigator, or Contact Centre Operator.

For more information, please visit the Wiltshire Police website www.wiltshire.police.uk/jobs and search for PCSO. 

Wiltshire Police recruitment team can be contacted at applications@wiltshire.pnn.police.uk  or the dedicated recruitment phone line on 01380 861121 (Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm).   Please do not call 101 for information about the recruitment process.

Find out more about Kashif and Kimberley's role as a PCSO.
