Email* SIGN UP The Calgary Stampede has reported that during training exercises this morning, two separate incidents occurred.Driver Tim Haroldson was a passenger on a wagon driven by fellow driver Jerry Bremner. The wagon rolled while coming around one of the barrels during morning training. Haroldson was thrown from the wagon and taken by ambulance to hospital for evaluation and treatment. Bremner was not injured. “We are hoping for the best for Tim,” says Paul Rosenberg, vice president Programming at the Calgary Stampede.The Stampede is reviewing the circumstances of the incident to determine what happened. Initial indications are that there was nothing out of the ordinary with regards to the wagon, the horses or the tack.Also during morning training, a wagon horse belonging to the outfit of Reg Johnstone collapsed and died after completing the team’s training run. No other horses in the outfit were injured. The horse was a 12-year-old thoroughbred named Denny, which had been owned by Johnstone for approximately 5 years. It was acquired from another chuckwagon driver after its initial career as a racehorse in the Vancouver area. The horse had last raced about a week ago at the Ponoka Stampede. A post-mortem will be performed to help determine cause of death.

A team of researchers at the Swansea University in Wales have discovered that they can now recognize when a patient will develop cancer because of a mutation that occurs in blood cells.Using a simple test that tracks down the mutated cells, doctors can now detect the illness in someone’s blood stream even if won’t develop for years.RELATED: ‘Lost’ Memories in Alzheimer Sufferers May Be Recoverable, Says StudyProfessor Gareth Jenkins, who led the study, said: “The test can be likened to a cancer smoke detector because a smoke detector does not detect the presence of fire in our homes but it’s by-product – smoke. This test detects cancer by detecting the ‘smoke’, the mutated blood cells. The old adage of no smoke without fire also applies to ‘no cancer without mutation’ as mutation is the driving force for cancer development.”The figurative ‘smoke detector’ has so far only been used to look for cancer in the oesophagus, due to victims’ low survival rates from not recognizing symptoms in time for treatment, but researchers are confident that the test will work just as efficiently with other forms of the disease.MORE: Geneticists Uncover Major Clue To Understanding SchizophreniaThe $46 test is currently undergoing trials of detecting pancreatic cancer, and researchers are predicting that the life-saving procedure could be available to the public in just 5 years.Though the test is simple, cancer treatment is always more effective when initiated as soon as possible, making this easy procedure a discovery that could save thousands of lives.Spread The New: Click To Share – Photo by AldenChadwick, CCAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMore

VBSR played a prominent role.”VBSR’s 2017 legislative agenda also includes work on revamping state procurement practices to attract more “high road” employers, making quality child care more affordable for working Vermonters, and reforming the state’s tax code by putting a price on carbon.VBSR’s Complete 2017 Legislative Agenda:· Reform state laws around the definition of independent contractor to allow for more flexibility while still retaining strong employment rights and protections for a vast majority of the Vermont workforce.· Change state procurement procedures to give incentives in state contracting to companies that create livable wage jobs with robust benefits.· Increase the opportunities for working families to find affordable and high quality child care so that talented employees can stay in the workforce.· Invest in a Clean Water Economy by cleaning up Lake Champlain and Vermont’s other waterways before our state brand and quality of life are irreparably harmed by the loss of these resources.· Reform Vermont’s tax code and make the state more economically competitive by putting an appropriate price on carbon pollution.VBSR is a statewide, non-profit business association with a mission to advance business ethics that value people, planet, and profit.

BRGR at Corinth Square will be changing hands under a sale agreement announced today.Bread & Butter Concepts, which got its start with BRGR Kitchen + Bar at Corinth Square in Prairie Village, today announced that it has sold BRGR and Taco Republic to a company formed by Whitney VinZant, the proprietor of Louie’s Wine Dive and Prasino restaurants.In an announcement of the sale, Bread & Butter founder Alan Gaylin said the sale would allow his company to focus on “the upscale dining side of our business, which is something I’ve wanted to do for a while.”Alan Gaylin won the Prairie Village Community Spirit Award in 2013 for Bread & Butter’s support of local events and fundraisers.In recent years, Bread & Butter has launched the high-end Plaza eateries Stock Hill and The Oliver, as well as an event space called Cherry Hill. The company will continue to operate those restaurants as well as Urban Table at Corinth Square in Prairie Village and Gram & Dun on the Plaza.“The overall dining experience at Stock Hill is really taking hold, and we continue to see more and more recognition for the innovative things we’re doing there,” Gaylin said.VinZant said he was drawn to the opportunity to purchase the portfolio of restaurants in part because he appreciated their involvement in the Kansas City community and wanted to keep them locally owned.“By keeping BRGR and Taco Republic local, each will continue its mission of serving the community, and partnering with the charities and events doing important work and making Kansas City a better place to live,” he said.VinZant’s company will take over the three BRGR locations — the original at Corinth as well as locations at Power & Light in downtown Kansas City and a Leawood location on 135th Street — as well as the Taco Republic restaurant at Mission Road and 47th Street and its mobile catering taco truck operation.He indicated that the company intended to bring some ” fun and quality focused restaurant ideas coming your way” after the transition.The parties did not disclose the terms of the sale, including the price. The deal is expected to close by the end of March 2019.
