first_imgW&W, the DJ duo of Willem van Hanegem & Ward van der Harst, hailing from The Netherlands (big surprise), released their new single “Thunder” on Mainstage Music, a sub-label of Armin Van Buuren‘s label Armada Music.  According to Armin himself, “W&W truly are the rising stars of trance. If I have to put my money on somebody, I put it on W&W.”  This track follows in the footsteps of W&W’s first chart topping hit “Mustang” and makes it clear why Armin has such faith in his Dutch prodigies.With characteristic W&W ear quaking bass and a classically cheerful upbeat progressive house melody, “Thunder” has the ability to make the floor quake of every club it meets.Check out “Thunder” here:last_img

Providers Indicted in Certification Scam

first_imgThe cot stuck out of the voting booth while Gorby fulfilled his civic responsibility, but his vote still counted. Get Him to the Polls on Time Wissinoming (Pa.) Volunteer Ambulance Operations Manager Mike Fasone says it’s not unheard of for patients being transported to ask to make a stop along the way. “We get a lot of requests for fast food,” he says. These are primarily from people who don’t get out of their homes much. The other four people involved–two paramedics and two EMTs–were employed by private ambulance companies in the Boston suburbs and by the Boston Fire Department. They reportedly collected names of colleagues for the rosters the instructor submitted. Fraudulent BehaviorIn November 2010, five EMS providers were indicted in Massachusetts for falsifying their recertification training records. Johnson says that once another ambulance arrived and they’d transferred care, all that was left to do was put on bunker gear and put out the fire in his own ambulance. Johnson says the lights and sirens came on, but the siren soon succumbed to the heat of the fire and wound down to silence. They moved the stretcher about 50 yards away, shielding it from the burning ambulance. “The patient was as cool as a cucumber,” says Johnson. We applaud the Wissinoming Volunteer Ambulance crew for their extra special customer service, helping a patient cast his vote and keep his patriotic record intact. In the first week of November, EMT Anthony Maresca made such a run. Maresca was one of the crew members who picked up Charles Gorby, MD, 83, from Lankenau Hospital near Philadelphia. Gorby was headed home when he asked about making a slight detour. The detour was “just a few minutes out of the way,” says Maresca.With chronic health issues, Gorby is no stranger to the ambulance company, so the crew was happy to oblige. It seems the retired physician hadn’t missed voting in an election since he turned 21, and it was Nov. 2–Election Day. Fortunately, his polling place was a fire station, so there was plenty of room to wheel in the ambulance cot after clearing it with election officials. “We allege that the conduct of these individuals severely undermined the state’s EMT certification process,” Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley says. “These acts posed a risk to public safety and public health, and our office is continuing our probe into this matter.” We give Johnson and Dahms a thumbs up for their quick, reasoned reactions that helped avert a potential catastrophe. A New Hampshire paramedic who worked for a Massachusetts ambulance service was named as the “central operator.” Between 2006 and 2009, he was approved by the state Office of Emergency Medical Services to teach more than a dozen training sessions. Next, Johnson pulled the monitor, IV pump, oxygen, pediatrics kit, trauma kit and narcotics out of the ambulance and then secured the narcotics in a police vehicle on scene. This article originally appeared in January 2011 JEMS as “Last Word: The Ups and Downs of EMS.” Johnson and his partner, Cory Dahms, were transporting a stable patient who was “in the middle of a myocardial infarction” to a higher level of care hospital when they noticed smoke entering the cab of their ambulance. Dahms pulled off the road. Johnson says, “We de-boarded rapidly.” When Johnson saw flames under the cab, “the sense of urgency increased,” he says. An Exciting RideYou don’t always need lights and sirens to have an exciting trip in an ambulance. If you don’t believe us, next time you’re in Jacksonville, Texas, ask paramedic/firefighter Madison Johnson about that fiery patient transfer in October. We give a thumbs down to these providers for their attempts to cut certification corners. These fraudulent actions not only reflect poorly on the professionalism of EMS, but they also put future patients at risk. JEMS The allegation is that he conspired with four others to submit attendance rosters for sessions that were either incomplete or never occurred. According to the state attorney general’s office, more than 200 EMTs fraudulently qualified for recertification under the scheme.last_img read more

BRIAN JOHNSON ON OUTDOORS: Cold-weather hog hunting

first_img Unlike a deer that will often stop and stomp a few times when he is scared, a hog simply runs out of sight. I can’t say it enough … make sure the wind is in your favor!3. Trail cameras are your friendIf there has ever been a device that makes hog hunting easier, it would be the trail camera.Once a hog finds feed, he is very predictable. A trail camera will tell you exactly when hogs are showing up. I usually wait until they have been regular for three or four days in a row, then I plan my attack.It is wise to show up at least an hour before the time the pigs are showing up. Remember that many times, pigs will wait in the area before the feeder goes off. The early bird gets the worm.4. Don’t be afraid of the darkMany of the hogs I have killed in the past have been taken well after dark.  If the camera shows pigs after dark, then plan your hunt accordingly. A red light for your bow or gun is a great help for these late night adventures.Other options include night vision or a feeder light. If you plan your hunt on a bright full moon, you can cover the area under your feeder with flour. A black hog on white four in the moonlight will give you a good silhouette to shoot. Regardless of the option you choose, if you stick with it, you should have night-time success.5. Shot placement is everythingAs the old saying goes … “practice makes perfect.” Whether you are shooting a bow, crossbow, rifle, pistol, muzzleloader, or shotgun, you still need to be able to hit the kill zone.Keep in mind that the bigger boars have an extremely thick armor plate that guards the vitals. The best shot for a bowhunter is low behind the shoulder with a slight quartering away angle.For rifle hunters, the most lethal is behind the ear or right between the eyes if you can pull it off. Regardless of the shot you choose, by practicing regularly with your weapon of choice, you be more confident when it comes time to make it count. Join a gun club or archery club and practice as often as you can.When in the hog woods, take a minute to look around and admire the beauty that God has created.  Sunrises and sunsets visible from a stand are some of His greatest masterpieces. Remember the best hunts are not judged on the kill but rather the memories you make with family and friends. By putting these time-tested tips into practice, you should be able to make some great hog hunting memories that last a lifetime.•Brian Johnson, originally of Port Neches, is pastor of the Outdoorsman’s Church in Winnie, owner of DuckDogTrainer.com and outdoors writer for The News. The main thing is to keep the feed out on a regular basis. Sometimes I dig a hole with post hole diggers and pour the feed in. This seems to buy me a few extra days without having to re-bait. If a pig shows up once or twice and there is no feed, he is likely to change his pattern.2. Pay attention to the windIf you have ever been busted by a deer and thought that it is hard to beat a deer’s nose, multiply this times 10 and that is a hog’s nose.If you don’t have the wind in your favor, simply change locations or stay home. If a big boar comes in down wind, he will smell you. Now that deer season has wrapped up in my neck of the woods, I am turning my big game pursuits toward the infamous wild hog.Hogs are a serious problem to the ecosystem, and I have decided to do my part to help reduce their ever-increasing numbers. I have hunted hogs, mainly with a bow and arrow, for close to 20 years.  During this time I have learned some things that have helped me become more successful in my pursuit of these pork chop-toting beauties.Below are a few tips that will help you to bring home the bacon and maximize your effectiveness in the woods:center_img 1. Pour on the feedKeep in mind they don’t call them “hogs” for no reason. These animals love to eat. The more feed that is put out, the more the hogs will visit your location.As far as what kind of feed to use, it is hard to beat regular deer corn. If you want to get fancy, you can mix in some red Kool-Aid or some hog wild. Horse and mule sweet feed is very effective as well.last_img read more

Matt Mueller on Finding Out He Got His Harry Potter Role at a Truck Stop & Why Jessie Mueller Makes Him Feel Like a ‘Proud Grandpa’

first_imgMatt Mueller(Photos by Caitlin McNaney for Broadway.com) from $40.00 Related Shows View Comments Matt Muellerin Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Photo by Matthew Murphy) Flash forward to Mueller driving in sleet “somewhere in the middle of Wyoming.” “I had finished a gig and was on a road trip,” he explained. “I was like, ‘I’ve got to get gas.’ I had just pulled up, and had a call from my agent. I went up to the truck stop and wandered around on the phone.” With the delight of earning the coveted Cursed Child role comes great responsibility. “What’s so wonderful is that they’re all these same people we fell in love with in the books. They are these people that we love that so many of us have literally and literarily grown up with. It was a little daunting to be like, ‘Everybody knows this guy,'” Mueller said. “The theatricality of it gives us license to be our own person. He’s one of the most courageous [characters] because he’s probably the most scared. He always steps up and always has. It’s a glorious thing to get to do.”Mueller’s sisters include Six-bound star Abby Mueller and Tony winner Jessie Mueller. He spoke about what it was like to witness Jessie’s Broadway debut in On a Clear Day You Can See Forever with Harry Connick Jr. “It was just such a wacky thing. I remember the day she left. We were outside of her apartment, and she got into a big black car and drove away like some sort of song,” he said. “It was all just incredibly exciting. I will never forget going to see Clear Day. That was definitely sort of a proud grandpa moment. Any time I see one of my siblings do what they do, it’s a joy.” Fingers crossed that audiences can catch all three Muellers on Broadway together one of these days!See Matt Mueller shine in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at Broadway’s Lyric Theatre!Watch the full #LiveAtFive episode below!  Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 30:19Loaded: 0%00:00Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently behind liveLIVERemaining Time -30:19 1xPlayback RateChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedEnglishAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

[Rehearsal was like] going to Hogwarts. We went to Hogwarts for three months,'” Mueller told Paul Wontorek in a recent interview on Broadway.com’s #LiveAtFive. “I auditioned initially in Chicago. My agent told me it was happening. I said, ‘That sounds like a lot of fun. There’s no way.’ I never thought anything would happen.”Mueller proceeded to participate in the audition process for the Broadway juggernaut. “You had your little family for the 90 minutes that were in the movement call. Everybody had a chopstick that was a wand,” he recalled. “The audition process for this has been and will probably remain one of the best audition processes ever. There’s so much love for the piece and what it is and the people who are involved in it. It was very apparent from the get-go. It’s a great vibe to have. Everybody’s there for the same reason. Everybody’s excited to see you and what you’re going to bring. It was just really, really cool.” Star Files Front Row Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Matt Muellerlast_img read more
