This means that in one month, PMH raised enough money for two freezers towards its ultimate target of ten – enough to properly house in deep-freeze safety all the fragile negatives in the Museum’s archival storage.“We are thrilled at this enthusiastic response, and deeply grateful to everyone who contributed financially, through their time and talent, and by helping us spread the word far and wide,” says Laura Verlaque, PMH Director of Collections.Updates on all aspects of this continuing preservation project will be posted on the PMH website at http://pasadenahistory.org/history-freeze/ and also on the Museum’s Facebook page.

igorkov/iStock(KETCHIKAN, Alaska) — A pilot and a passenger were killed in southeastern Alaska on Monday when a floatplane crashed into a harbor, officials said.The victims were the only occupants on the Taquan Air floatplane when it crashed near Ketchikan at around 4 p.m., marking the Alaska-based airline’s second fatal incident in a week. Federal transportation authorities said the flight was a commuter flight, but didn’t offer any other details on the crash.Ketchikan officials declined to release the circumstances of the crash.“The names of the deceased will not be released until next of kin have been notified,” Ketchikan Gateway authorities said in a statement Monday. “Both individuals were brought to the Annette Island Service Unit. Good Samaritans have the aircraft in tow and are bringing the Beaver to the beach until it can be secured.”Taquan Air directed all inquiries about the incident to the National Transportation Safety Board, which is investigating the crash along with the Federal Aviation Administration.The crash came exactly one week after a Taquan Air sightseeing plane collided with another aircraft over Alaska on May 13, killing six people. The FAA is investigating the cause of that crash as well.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
It was a tense day for those at the Head of the River yesterday.While Christ Church men held their lead, fending off Pembroke’s advances with a more comfortable gap than Wednesday’s close finish, the Magdalen boys were in hot pursuit. The Headship remains up for grabs.Magdalen women have also been on top form, closing the gap with St Catherine’s earlier in the afternoon.After a long struggle up the division, their bump with Christ Church on Wednesday put headship in the Magdalen girls’ sights, and they will be upping the pressure on St Catz this afternoon.Yesterday, Magdalen were just a hair’s-width away as the klaxon went and St Catz were saved by the bell. Not so lucky were the four other boats who were bumped in time, seeing Wadham, New, SEH and Balliol move on up the division.The klaxon had been rung after a Hilda’s rower caught an ejector crab and was propelled into the water right in front of Balliol’s boat. St Catz cannot rely on that sort of luck to keep their place in the lead. The competition so far has also seen impressive form from both St John’s and Hertford men. Having both moved up a position on Wednesday, Thursday saw John’s bump New within the first 35 seconds of the race, Hertford taking Exeter seconds later.Balliol will have to watch out today with John’s right behind them.

We are building 20 mini-stadia across the state and four of the stadia can be used as practice fields”.The governor added that the fibre optic cables being laid across Benin City metropolis would provide the infrastructure to broadcast matches, adding that the Benin Specialist Hospital would provide the needed medical services.In Asaba, Delta Governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, assured FIFA officials that they do not need to worry about venue for the tournament as the Stephen Keshi Stadium Asaba will serve as an excellent venue.Okowa expressed readiness of the state government to provide any further improvement in the facility as might be necessary to make the stadium the best venue for the competition.He observed that several international sport events like the 21st Africa Senior Athletics Competition as well as the Super Eagles matches with Seychelles and Egypt, were among major events that had been hosted at the Keshi Stadium without hitches, stressing that hosting the Under-20 Women’s World Cup would be a great event that would be welcomed by football enthusiasts in Delta State.Okowa said, “I am glad that you are here to inspect sporting facilities in our state. As a government, we have continued to do the best we can to develop sporting facilities and we have done very well in that area.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
