Three tourists injured in Times Square shooting

first_imgkali9/iStock(NEW YORK) — Three people were injured after shots were fired in New York’s Times Square, including a 4-year-old girl who was shot in the leg. All of the victims were taken to Bellevue Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The 4-year-old was struck in the thigh by a bullet and will undergo surgery.New York Police Department Commissioner Dermot Shea said the incident started as an argument between a group of two to four men when at least one of them pulled out a gun and started shooting. The shots missed and struck the victims, who police say were innocent bystanders. The group of men involved fled the scene and police have no suspects in custody. Shea confirmed that the NYPD is looking for at least one shooter and one person of interest.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Kids cooking

first_imgBy Faith PeppersUniversity of Georgia With the first day of school just around the corner, now is a good time to start sharpening skills. And the kitchen is a fun place for children of all ages to refresh math skills and reinforce lessons learned in school, a University of Georgia expert says.“The important thing to remember to make the kitchen fun, educational and safe, is to give children age-appropriate tasks,” said Connie Crawley, a UGA Cooperative Extension nutrition expert in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences.Letting children help in the kitchen is a good way to practice measuring skills. Learning to double or cut a recipe in half is a fun way to use and practice math skills, she said. “It is also a good exercise for children to check recipes, list ingredients needed, make a shopping list, help purchase the food, store it properly, plan a schedule for preparation, do the preparation and then clean up,” Crawley said. More skills can be used by having children search for coupons, clip and sort them, and help figure out how much money can save with the coupons. When it comes to actually preparing food, middle school students can be fairly independent.“They can handle more complex recipes like casseroles, desserts, soups and special salads,” she said. “And they can certainly prepare simple meals for the family if instructed by parents.” Crawley doesn’t recommend allowing kids to fry or grill foods unless parents closely supervise. “At this stage,” she said, “they may begin being interested in the creative side of food and want to make complex desserts, breads and other more adventurous recipes.”Fuel their creativity, she said, but expect outcomes to be sometimes less than perfect.Elementary-school-aged children can get in on the action, too. “With supervision, children actually can make a simple recipe,” she said. “They can cook on the stove with supervision, but there are many other options for them.”Crawley recommends letting elementary school students prepare sandwiches and salads, knead and shape homemade bread or make pizza. Depending on their manual dexterity and the amount of supervision they need, some children may be able to cut and chop ingredients. Breakfast and snack foods are an easy place to start.Preschoolers love to play kitchen. Helping prepare a real meal is an added treat. “Most of the things they can do at this age must be totally supervised by an adult,” Crawley said. “Their tasks will mainly be pour-and-dump type activities like pouring a liquid from a measuring cup into a recipe.”Preschool children can also count the number of eggs needed for a recipe, help crack the eggs with assistance and let them fall into a batter, she said. Other skills right for the preschool set include spooning an ingredient into a measuring cup, cutting cookie or biscuit dough, stirring ingredients with a spoon or topping a pancake or waffle with cooked fruit.“Many preschoolers can help spread frosting on cupcakes or spoon muffin batter into a pan,” Crawley said. “They can help decorate holiday foods as long as you aren’t expecting perfection. One of their favorite ways to help is to gather ingredients for a recipe and help with clean up afterward.” In addition to math and writing skills, the kitchen is a good place to teach children about their family heritage and other cultures. “Children are often interested in learning to prepare traditional foods that family members have passed down,” Crawley said. Cooking family cultural dishes or other international recipes provides a good opportunity to learn about the countries where the foods come from and brush up on geography and social studies.(Faith Peppers is a news editor for the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)last_img read more

Waiting For Unredacted Declassified Transcript of Trump’s Ukraine Call

first_imgPresident Trump says the secretary of state has received permission from Ukraine’s government to release the transcript of a phone call between Trump and Ukraine’s president. And, Congress could see a whistleblower complaint about a phone call between President Trump and Ukraine’s leader this week. The White House is reportedly preparing to release the complaint along with an inspector general report on the issue. During the phone call in question, Trump reportedly pressured the Ukrainian government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. The phone call has prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to launch an impeachment inquiry against Trump. Meanwhile, Rudy Giuliani says he got involved in U.S.-Ukraine relations at the request of the State Department. Those relations are now at the center of an impeachment inquiry against President Trump, accused of withholding military aid in order to get dirt on former Vice President and 2020 Democratic hopeful Joe Biden. Speaking last night with Fox News’ Laura Ingram, President Trump’s personal attorney said the department thought he would be better suited than the FBI.Giuliani said he reported every conversation he had back to the State Department.last_img read more

TFA Chief Executive Officer, Colm Maguire said the meeting was a success and that he looks forward to the implementation of the ideas discussed. “At the beginning of this year we identified key areas of focus, one of which was participation and the need to address participation opportunities for people within our sport but also addressing the important area of growth. “All bodies in Touch Football are looking to grow the sport and present more opportunities for people to participate. The meeting was a key opportunity to get together representatives from across Australia in terms of New South Wales, Queensland and some of the other states as well as the key staff at Touch Football Australia charged with the responsibility of delivering products to support growth and we honed in on some key areas we think can solve that. “I was truly energised by some of the ideas that actually came out of today and I really believe with a unified and collaborative approach to the delivery of the various things that we put on the table, we should realise a lot of the growth outcomes that we’ve set for ourselves as a long term strategic goal. Our Participation Plan is the map that will guide any of the strategies that we put in place but the meeting really resulted in people having buy in to some of those outcomes and saying that we will commit to the delivery of various elements over the next 12 to 18 months and see what the outcomes are.“To have the people in the room contributing the way that they did, I truly believe that we have the right people and the right ideas, now it’s about turning it into action and the coming months will see us develop an action plan from the initiatives we’ve talked about today and hopefully the sport is the beneficiary,” Maguire said. NSWTA General Manager, Dean Russell said that the meeting was positive and he looks forward to seeing the outcomes achieved from the items discussed. “The NSWTA is looking to work with both TFA and all the states to come up with initiatives to both grow the sport and participation. The outcomes from the meeting have been a positive first step in achieving this goal. We look forward to further developments for the betterment of all our current and also future members,” Russell said. QTA General Manager, Gary Madders, also took lots of positives from the meeting.  “There are definitely positives signs in the four areas we’ve targeted to focus on for the sport, there will certainly be a lot of work done in those areas in the coming months and into next year in particular to try to regrow the sport around Australia,” Madders said. TFA General Manager, Sport Operations, Marianne Maguire said that there are some exciting opportunities ahead in the area of participation.“TFA remains committed to our strategic objective to ‘substantially increasing participation’ and achieving results within our Participation Plan.  The meeting continues to build on the strategies and outcomes identified in the Plan in a collaborative and consultative manner with our key partners.“There are some exciting opportunities to diversify our participation models and revenue sources, which will help the sport adjust with today’s changing sporting environment.  We look forward to building on these with the ASC and the rest of the unified states at a proposed meeting in June,” Maguire said.  TFA Participation Manager, Adam Raptis, said that the meeting was a ‘fantastic opportunity’ to work together and develop ideas. “The main focus of my role is to develop initiatives and programs that are geared towards achieving the major outcomes of our Participation Plan; those being the increase of our participant base and the development of support mechanisms to provide a quality experience for our members. The meeting provided a fantastic opportunity to brainstorm and further develop some of these ideas with staff members from our partnering states in New South Wales and Queensland,” Raptis said. TFA General Manager, Regional Operations, Matt Bamford, was also pleased with how the meeting went. “The meeting presented an opportunity to bring together a range of ideas and initiatives for the future of Touch Football in Australia.  The scope for innovative and diverse participation ideas beyond the traditional is an area of real opportunity for the game, and one we need to embrace and move forward with,” Bamford said.The Australian Government provides Touch Football Australia with funding on an annual basis.
