. . . . from John, awaiting Nancy’s draft of her week’s news.
Item #1: No injuries reported …
About 1.5 miles north of Lake Erie’s north shore, or about 60 miles north of Cleveland, Ohio — no one was hurt. That’s the good news.
The other aspect is good or bad depending on your view of wind towers. I suspect this one will be available cheaply — if you want one.
Canadian authorities are investigating.
Item #2: It will stink no more …
One of the biggest rubbish dumps in South America has closed in Brazil after almost 60 years.
The Estructural dump, about 18 miles from the country’s capital, Brasilia, had processed more than 1,000 tonnes of rubbish every day.
Good news, then, that it has been closed. But maybe not in the short term for the people of the nearby favela, Portuguese for slum. Folks have made a living for 67 years by sorting through the garbage. They have been offered new employment in a cleaner environment, a recycling job.
Some are not happy with the change, but this seems like good news to me. Maybe in a year or so, they will think so too.
Item #3: Mother and daughter …
Rose, an ER nurse, and daughter Morgan, just a regular nurse were flying from Charlotte, NC to Utah. A man needed medical help so the airline provided the equipment and the mother-daughter team provided the know-how.
The man was unresponsive, had vomited, and had blood pressure of 56/30. That’s not good! Very dehydrated.
They got an IV going and hand squeezed 4 liters of fluid into him.
A Pittsburgh area physician was linked-in and offered advice, the plane stayed on its flight path at a pedal to the metal velocity.
And the interesting part: For the first time ever, Morgan forgot about her fear of flying.
And that, for this week, is the not so nasty news.
