Crews can be deployed out-of-province for up to 19 days, but can be recalled at any time.The BC Wildfire Service recognizes the importance of sharing firefighting resources given the invaluable assistance Alberta has provided to B.C. during the last two wildfire seasons, which were the worst in the province’s history. KAMLOOPS, B.C. – The Province of B.C. will send 267 wildfire personnel to Alberta to help with firefighting efforts.Firefighters and support staff will start arriving on Wednesday and Thursday and will be deployed as needed in the Province.Of the people being sent, the majority will be firefighters which include the following:
Conley and Turner cash in with new salary cap
Day 1 of NBA free agency on Friday was an unprecedented start to what will become the most lucrative offseason in the history of the sport.The increase from $70M to $94M in team cap space has given owners the ability to offer substantial contracts to many players who would’ve never sniffed $20M per year under the previous salary cap.Two of those beneficiaries are former Ohio State Buckeyes Mike Conley and Evan Turner. Conley re-signed with the Memphis Grizzlies for a five-year, $153 million deal. Turner etched a four-year, $75 million deal with the Portland Trail Blazers.Conley’s deal marks the richest in NBA history, which could be surpassed by free agents LeBron James and Kevin Durant.Conley is now bringing in more money per year than any other point guard in the NBA despite never being named an All-Star. Since being drafted at No. 4 overall in the 2007 NBA draft by the Grizzlies, Conley has widely been regarded as the league’s most underrated point guard.He has averaged 15.7 points per game and 5.9 assists per game over the last four seasons with the Grizzlies. His season was cut short after 56 games because of an Achilles injury.Conley played one season at OSU and averaged 11.3 ppg and 6.1 apg in 2006-07, leading the Buckeyes to their first NCAA final since 1962.Turner played with the Celtics the last two seasons averaging 10.5 ppg, 4.4 apg, 4.9 rebounds per game in 2015-16 as Boston’s sixth man.Portland will be Turner’s fourth team in the NBA since being selected No. 2 overall by Philadelphia in 2010.Turner was AP Player of the Year in 2009-10 with OSU averaging 20.4 ppg, 6.0 apg and 9.2 rpg.
David Beckham plans for star arrivals for Miami team
David Beckham has reportedly begun planning to recruit star names after his MLS franchise Miami were given their license to compete in the league from 2020According to the Daily Mirror, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star is targeting some big names from the outset with Carlo Ancelotti reportedly being the leading candidate to lead the new team out for their debut campaign.Should Beckham fail to acquire his former AC Milan manager’s services, he then plans to target his former teammate Zinedine Zidane who currently manages Real. Although it is unlikely that the Frenchman will join Miami anytime in the near future.Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.The English newspaper has also reported that Wayne Rooney is another target that the former England captain has in mind for the squad. The forward has recently re-joined his boyhood club Everton and has recently revealed his desire to manage the club one day in the future, but has hinted at an interest in playing in the MLS in the past.The biggest surprise target is Cristiano Ronaldo, who succeeded Beckham as the new number 7 at United back in 2003. By 2020, the Portuguese star will be 35 years old and may see the move as an ideal prospect in order to maintain his global status.“I want Miami to be the best in the MLS,” insisted Beckham.
TCI Hospitals vying for medical tourism clients in Canada
TCI Hospital Gets New Executive Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Providenciales, 03 Sept 2015 – Despite competition from regional medical hubs like Cuba and the Dominican Republic, the TCI Hospitals were present and accounted for at the recent Destination Health expo held in Montreal, Canada. The medical tourism trade show in late August, which was said to be the first of its kind event held on Canadian soil allowed medical services companies to vie for the over $400 million dollars Canadians reportedly spend on health care outside of their country every year; Destination Health says some 800,000 Canadian travel for care. Magnetic Media spoke to PR executive at the TCI Hospitals Takara Bain who revealed the strongest selling point for the TCI three person delegation, is the fact that Providenciales is the World’s #1 Island. The fact was featured on the hospitals showcase set up at the expo where Interhealth Canada was named as a sponsor and the trip from the Turks and Caicos was funded by InterHealth Canada Global, 100% according to Ms. Bain. Already knee and hip replacement surgeries are being done at our two hospitals thanks to a liaison the TCI Hospitals have with Global Med Choice. When asked if the local facilities could spare the beds for the visiting patients, Bain explained that the current out of town patients are usually shorter stays at the hospital during their treatment with longer stays at any TCI resort, where the patient’s recovery time is also spent. Admittedly it is new territory for the TCI Hospitals; the plan is to attend Destination Health again next year.

Gun owner groups sue over California age restrictions
Gun owner groups sue over California age restrictions SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gun owners’ rights groups are asking a federal judge to overturn a California law raising the age to purchase a rifle or shotgun from 18 to 21.The Calguns Foundation, Firearms Policy Coalition, Firearms Policy Foundation, and Second Amendment Foundation sued Monday in federal court in San Diego. They contend that those over 18 are legally adults and can’t be deprived of their Second Amendment right to bear arms.The higher age limit already applied to handguns, but supporters of last year’s legislation argued that some of the nation’s worst mass shootings have been committed by young adults using rifles.The law by Democratic Sen. Anthony Portantino of the Los Angeles area includes exemptions for young adults who have hunting licenses or are in the military or law enforcement.
