the north face gilet womens Campaigners welcome ticket office U

The petition, which was headed Save York Station Ticket Office and Staffing Levels and urged Virgin to retain the office and staffing, and their knowledge and expertise, was signed by more than 2,700 people.

The Press reported on Saturday that under proposals going shortly to City of York Council, there had been a U turn by Virgin and it now planned to have staff behind desks in an area of the new customer zone, situated in the current ladies toilets.

“The staff are friendly and helpful and have a depth and breadth of knowledge and expertise in assisting people to plan their journeys, especially if they are complex ones: advise on the best times and routes to travel and achieve the best prices,” she said.

“Many people do not like using ticket machines and some people have difficulties using them. This includes people with disabilities,

for instance visual problems, people with learning disabilities and some with mental health problems, as well as those with physical disabilities. Some people prefer face to face interaction.”

Micklegate councillor Jonny Crawshaw said:”I am pleased that Virgin have listened to the views of a great many rail users who, like Ms Leadley and I, really value the face to face contact, knowledge and advice that is currently on offer via York Station’s ticket office.

“Our primary concern was to ensure no cuts to the current service level and in particular to protect more vulnerable rail users who may struggle with complicated ticketing, using ticket machines or making online purchases.”

He said that having spoken with Virgin and the TSSA union, which represents ticket office staff, he was pleased to note there would be no changes to the opening hours and staffed counters would remain part of the offer. He was also reassured that a fair deal had been reached for those staff affected by the proposed changes.

“It should be acknowledged however that there have been voluntary redundancies as well as changes to staff rostering which may need time to bed in,

“We the undersigned are opposed to the downgrading of services provided by Darlington Memorial Hospital.

With a population of more than 106,000 people, Darlington and surrounding areas would be greatly affected by any downgrade in services. County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust are preparing to consult on plans to downgrade A maternity and other vital care units.

By signing our petition you will be helping to bring this matter to the attention of the wider public and media, protect services for local residents, and to send a message to County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust.

Please Help us Save Our Services at Darlington Memorial Hospital!”

There’s also a Save Our Services at Darlington Memorial Hospital Facebook page.

County Durham and Darlington NHS Trust say

In response, County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust sent us the following statement.

“As an NHS organisation we cannot stand still advances in medical science, technology and the specialist skills of NHS professionals have made huge contributions to improved survival rates, outcomes and quality of life over the past few decades.

If we want to be able to continue driving improvements and delivering high quality, sustainable services which meet the needs and expectations of our patients now and into the future against a backdrop of pressures in recruiting specialist staff, delivering quality and access standards and within financial constraints then we need to consider ways in which care and services could be delivered differently.

Senior consultants from the Trust are working with colleagues from across all the hospitals in Durham, Darlington and Teesside together with GPs on a programme of work which is about how we can improve outcomes and experience for patients when they need care, especially in an emergency.

This programme of work is called The Better Health programme and is aimed at identifying how we could improve clinical outcomes for the populations that we all serve.

However, no decisions have been made and importantly the next stage of engagement work with public, patients and staff has just begun allowing everyone to have their say. The series of engagement events will feed into a formal public consultation later in the year.

the north face london Camp X has rich history as Canadian spy school

TORONTOA German soldier dies silently as a World War IIspy trained near Oshawa quickly and efficiently slits his throat.

A trainee is killed while crawling under barbed wire during a live ammunition exercise. EST EST when History channelairs Camp X: Secret Agent School echo the grim realities of agents who risked their lives while preparing to destroy enemy power plants and bridges.

Yap documentaries include a bit of archaeology to help viewers relate to history, Halpern said.

Opened Dec. 6, 1941, Camp X wartime role absolutely phenomenal particularly when it came to bringing the British, the Americans and the Canadians together, O said.

A farm between Whitby and Oshawa was selected, becoming what ex staffer Winnifred Gardner called first place the Americans, Canadians and the English all worked together. Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the Central Intelligence Agency precursor, wanted a secure facility far from war torn Great Britain, but until Japan attacked Pearl Harbour in Hawaii on Dec. entered the war, Americans were not involved officially.

By then, Canada had more than 100 British Commonwealth Air Training Plan stations, including No. 31 Bombing School, RAFPicton. Located south of Belleville, the cast and crew used its grounds and largely intact wooden buildings last fall.

Spies were vital, since Great Britain couldn stop Nazi advances and resistance fighters were hunted down, narrator Michael Allcock said, describing Camp X as deadly school for dirty warfare, that changed the world of espionage. Sir William Stephenson, who as head of the British Security Co ordination used the code name was assigned to create the secret base.

Actor GrahamGauthier portrays Major William Fairbairn, the hard eyed chief instructor whose hand to hand close quarter combat methods are still taught.

The agents not ordinary soldiers, said.

In addition to British instructors, Major Paul Dehn, a pre war film critic and Camp X political warfare instructor, wrote most of its training manual, which the OSS adopted for seven spy schools.

is the first time I actually seen the primary source, said O who examined the previously secret document in England.

a prisoner if you are armed, kill him first, wrote, adding in chillingly wry tones: that is inconvenient knock him out then search him. Attack your opponent weakest points. He will attack yours if he gets the chance. former agent Richard Holmes recalled softly, of my friends paid with their lives. stressed the need for being exchanging properly coded messages and destroying enemy sites.

Canadian Dave Lapsley portrays skilled Toronto telegrapher Norm Delahunty, whose signals successfully misled German operatives in South America, resulting in fewer submarine attacks on convoys carrying supplies and troops to Great Britain.

Viewers are also told of a Camp X decoding invention still used decades later.

To increase the chances of agents avoiding capture, immigrants with knowledge of European languages, cultures and customs were recruited.

Estimates of Canadian and American trainee ranks vary, but exact numbers and many names are unknown.

Camp X was, after all, a spy school.

Some say Fleming failed a staged assassination assignment and lived briefly across from St. James Bond United Church on Avenue Rd. in Toronto, but Halpern said researchers able to find any hard evidence of him being there. however, co wrote the script for the 1964 movie Goldfinger, the first Bond film.

One famous visitor billeted at what became a Royal Canadian Corps of Signals spy listening station was cipher clerk Igor Gouzenko, who told RCMP,British and FBI officials of global Soviet spying, using proof he had smuggled from the USSR Ottawa embassy in 1945.

For the documentary, his daughter Evelyn Wilson revisits the Durham site, where she was born, before the renamed Gouzenko family resettled in Mississauga.

the north face nuptse 2 jacket Camp Lakeside renovations to make facilities more accessible

There are a number of adaptive camps in the southeast, but they’re limited, and fill up fast.

“It makes all the different in the world. For many kids, its the difference of them being able to go to camp, or not go to camp,” said President of the Augusta Family Y,

Danny McConnell.

“It’s an opportunity for this part of Georgia to take a giant step forward in helping children with chronic diseases and disabilities have the opportunity to experience the great outdoors,” said Governor Nathan Deal.

Deal recalled some of his own camp memories at the event.

“I started going at least when I was 3 years old. I actually learned to swim there,” said Deal.

“I like going swimming,” said Harris.

It’s an activity a lot of the kids seem to agree on. This will be a place where they will be able to do just that without having to focus on set backs.

“Discussions about their illness happen, but it’s not a planned kind of thing. The kids really just enjoy being with each other, and know that they’re not the only person in the world that has juvenile arthritis or cancer or heart problems,

the north face jester Camouflage shows fashion versatility

The print that at one time was only a tool for military troops to go unnoticed has become a front and center look in fashion. It’s been adapted in luxe fur, sequin sweaters, athletic wear and casual kicks. It’s for girls and boys, women and men.

“The irony is that camo is anything but camouflaged right now,” said Zanna Roberts Rassi, Marie Claire’s senior fashion editor.

She points to recent examples where the runway has led to the trenches, including the oversized version on Michael Kors’ fur jackets, on Christopher Kane cocktail dresses and Valentino shoes. “It comes from the military, but it’s being made now for a night on the town,” she said.

Some versions have maintained more utilitarian roots, including vests and parkas at J. Crew and jeggings at Aeropostale. For spring, North Face has camo inspired workout gear.

“Camo is peaking,” according to Emilia Fabricant, Aeropostale’s executive vice president of design, merchandising and production. “It’s hitting everything, from sweaters to outerwear. It’s so graphic. It’s edgy but it’s also completely neutral.”

That’s the beauty of it: it dresses up, it dresses down. It is as urban or as country as you want to make it.

“Think of it as the non print print,” said Heather Archibald, director of merchandising at online retailer Piperlime. “It’s like the paisley of a million years ago. . It has found a way into our wardrobe as a staple.”

It’s evolved into something like the cheetah print that was, at one time, considered edgy and a little risque but is now offered in everything from sweet ballet flats to toddler clothes.

Camo retains its cool, though, especially when it’s worn with a wink, said Tom Mora, head women’s designer at J. Crew. It’s wearing the print in a feminine fabric a georgette blouse, perhaps or something like a parka over slim cargo pants and a lacy tank top or high heels, he said. “I like the sexy take on the classic hunter look.”

Mora said he also likes the irony when camo is worn in a slick urban way. He likes to see it mostly in neutrals maybe a version in makeup colors such as blush and beige with a pop of navy or yellow. Orange looks good, too, but is maybe a bit cliche.

Adding the flash of color, or the glitzy necklace, or the pencil skirt keeps camo from being too serious. Try a motorcycle boot or a “fierce” ankle strap shoe, suggests Archibald, and accessories in metallic or camel will elevate the look and make it seem more ladylike.

Her other tip is a polished beauty look. “Paint your nails, put on your lipstick. You want an amazing look, not be sloppy.”

For the guys, it’s about the camo sneaker with dark denim, or a jacket or hoodie over more tailored trousers.

Not many prints a plaid could be the exception move so seamlessly between men’s and women’s clothes. Either way, camouflage evokes a lived in look, so don’t be fussy or too polished, advises Fabricant.

the north face base camp Cameron wants Cotswold Line section upgraded

THE last single track section of the Cotswold Line rail route through West Oxfordshire should be redoubled as a matter of urgency, according to Prime Minister and Witney MP David Cameron.

He has written to Chancellor George Osborne and Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin calling for funding to be committed for reinstatement of the second track from Charlbury to Wolvercot junction, north of Oxford, before the end of the current Parliament next year.

His intervention follows pressure from MPs in Worcestershire, who said that even though 20 miles of the line saw double track reinstated in 2011, including the four miles from Charlbury to Ascott under Wychwood, services on the route between Oxford and Worcester were still not reliable enough and should be speeded up.

John Ellis, the chairman of the Cotswold Line Promotion Group, which represents passengers, said that reinstatement of more double track would bring a range of benefits.

He said: “We expect this will lead to more frequent, faster and more reliable services.

“The reason the PM is intervening is that services from Worcester are still very slow, there has been no significant improvement in frequency, nothing like the regular hourly services we are calling for.”

As well as the nine mile single track section of the line in West Oxfordshire, there is another of similar length at the western end of the line, between Evesham and the edge of Worcester.

West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin said: “This is an important intervention by the Prime Minister, who uses the service and is aware of the problems Cotswold Line passengers face.

“We got a phone call from the victim who was watching the burglary remotely through her security device,” said King County Sgt. Jason Escobar. “She was able to see the female suspect and male suspect inside her home committing the burglary and they stole several high end electronics and jewelry. We are concerned that they may do this again. Who knows. It might lead to a violent crime and the homeowner might come home and interrupt them. It could lead to something far worse than a burglary.”

the north face sandals cameraman found in melting glacier

The bodies of a renowned mountain climber and expedition cameraman who were buried in a Himalayan avalanche 16 years ago have been found.

The widow of Alex Lowe said in a statement Friday that two climbers attempting to ascend the 26,291 foot Shishapangma in Tibet discovered the remains of two people partially melting out of a glacier.

The climbers described the clothing and backpacks seen on the bodies to Conrad Anker, who was climbing with Lowe and cameraman David Bridges at the time of the October 1999 avalanche and survived. Anker concluded that the two were Bridges and Lowe, the statement said.

He told Outside magazine that although he hasn’t seen photos of the remains, he’s convinced they are those of Lowe and Bridges.

“They were close to each other. Blue and red North Face backpacks. Yellow Koflach boots. It was all that gear from that time period. They were pretty much the only two climbers who were there,” Anker said.

Lowe,

Anker, Bridges and several others were on an expedition to climb Shishapangma, the 14th highest mountain in the world, then ski down it. They were scouting out routes at about 19,000 feet when they saw a slab of snow break free 6,000 feet above them.

Anker concluded that the two were Bridges and Lowe, the statement said. “Alex and David vanished, were captured and frozen in time. Sixteen years of life has been lived and now they are found. We are thankful,” Jenni Lowe Anker said. She married Anker, her husband friend and fellow elite climber, in 2001. They live in Bozeman, Montana, and run the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation together.

Anker said the discovery has brought closure and relief to him. He told Outside magazine that although he hasn seen photos of the remains, he convinced they are those of Lowe and Bridges. “They were close to each other. Blue and red North Face backpacks. Yellow Koflach boots. It was all that gear from that time period. They were pretty much the only two climbers who were there,” Anker said.

Lowe was regarded as the world greatest mountain climber when he was swept to his death at age 40. He was known jokingly as “Lungs With Legs” for his incredible strength and stamina. He had made difficult climbs all over the world, including Nepal Kwangde and Kusum Kanguru, and twice reached the summit of Mount Everest. In Peru, he climbed the southwest buttress of Taulliraju.

He was credited with rescuing several climbers in Alaska in 1995, a year when six climbers died on Mount McKinley. Bridges, 29, of Aspen, Colorado was an accomplished high altitude climber and cinematographer.

“There was also hats and gloves of theirs that were found. It was in the area where they were discovered and there may be even more of their equipment that will surface as more snow melts.”
