(Daisuke Suzuki/Kyodo News via AP)GANGNEUNG, South Korea — In a rare sight, North Korean flags flew in South Korea on Thursday as the South prepared for the first Winter Olympics on its soil that has brought a temporary lull in tensions surrounding the North’s nuclear weapons program.The Olympic village in Gangneung turned into a selfie site as volunteer workers posed under a North Korean flag that has been raised in the country for the first time since a hockey tournament in April last year.ADVERTISEMENT North Korean flags were also raised at the other athletes’ village in Pyeongchang and stadiums in both Pyeongchang and Gangneung, where North Korean athletes are expected to compete during the Feb. 9-25 games, according to Pyeongchang’s Olympic Organizing Committee.The flags’ hoisting came hours before 10 North Korean skiers and skaters arrive on a rare flight between the war-separated rivals. North Korea is sending a total of 22 athletes, and the rest 12 all female hockey players have already been practicing in the South with South Korean teammates for a unified team competing at the games..FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“If feels amazing (that they are coming),” said Choi So Eun, a college student who volunteered for translation and other work during the Olympics, after taking a selfie with a fellow volunteer under a North Korean flag at the Gangneung athletes’ village.“I thought only high-level officials in South Korea could see a North Korean in person, but I think I can see them here so I’m excited,” Choi said.

Another volunteer, Choi Sangyoung, said he hopes that the Olympics would help ease animosities between the rivals and lead them toward a “peaceful and good” direction.South Korea is preparing to host hundreds of other North Koreans during the games, including a 230-member cheering group and a 140-strong art troupe who are due to arrive next week. The Koreas have agreed to jointly march under a single “unification” flag during the opening ceremony.The Koreas’ Olympics-inspired reconciliation steps came after an extended period of animosity and diplomatic stalemate over North Korea’s advancing nuclear and missiles programs. Seoul sees the developments as an opportunity to revive meaningful communication with Pyongyang. Some outside experts say the North may aim to use improved ties with South Korea as a way to weaken U.S.-led international sanctions.North Korean flags also flew during the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, the last time the North sent a big delegation to a sporting event across the border. Displaying North Korean flags in public is banned under South Korea’s anti-Pyongyang security law, but the South has allowed exceptions when it hosts North Koreans for international events.Pyeongchang, a relatively small ski resort town, will host the ski, snowboard and sliding events during the Olympics. Gangneung, a larger coastal city about an hour’s drive away, will host the skating, hockey and curling events.ADVERTISEMENT Slow and steady hope for near-extinct Bangladesh tortoises 2 ‘newbie’ drug pushers fall in Lucena sting View comments LATEST STORIES NEXT BLOCK ASIA 2.0 introduces GURUS AWARDS to recognize and reward industry influencers Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC AFP official booed out of forum Read Next Ginebra signs big man Prince Caperal Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding
Share on LinkedIn Share via Email It was tough for him but he has great expertise, great intelligence. People say he is pragmatic and I guess that is true in the sense he will strive to get the best out of every situation, whatever has happened, whoever is out injured or off-form. He is precise, demanding but capable of listening to his players. There is a generation gap, of course, but he is smart enough to bridge it when it is necessary and put up barriers at other times.He likes to control everything around him, which is why he builds his support staff so meticulously. It is not easy to work with him because, if he feels he is not totally in control he will walk away. We have seen it in the past at Juventus and at Marseille. Didier has character, and with his record as a player and now as a manager he knows what he wants and expects his employer to back him all the way, which I totally understand. He will not stand being undermined and will not suffer fools gladly. At the same time he is modern in the sense that he is always ready to evolve, take on new ideas and move forward.This France squad has different qualities from the one he played with and became world champion with back in 1998. Today’s France team has less experience, for example. A number of us in 1998 were around 30 years old whereas today they are much younger and bring other qualities to the table. They have grown up in a totally different culture and with different values but Didier has shown he can cope with all that and still retain their respect. Losing the Euro 2016 final to Portugal was very tough for him. He thought he had the right players to go all the way but France fell short, fell at the final hurdle and he understood immediately he would have to get rid of certain players and build again. Some complain in France that the national team is not spectacular enough or moan that Didier could be more fun in his communication. Well, for a start, we are in the World Cup final – and our game against Argentina was perhaps the most exciting of the tournament.Didier, though, has built a team to do a job, to win the competition, not to score points in a beauty competition. And if you think he is not funny, maybe you missed the TV show I work on in France when, after the semi-final win over Belgium, we had him with us on a live link-up.I started to congratulate him and to formulate a question only to be interrupted by Didier, laughing, who told me to stop talking to him as if I were a journalist. “It’s me, Dédé, your old pal – talk to me normally!” he said. At the end of our conversation I told him to keep the players under control ahead of the final and he replied: “I managed to keep you out of trouble 20 years ago, so I don’t think this bunch will cause me any headaches!”Didier was always mature for his age. You might find it hard to believe now because he is not the biggest guy around, but when he was a young teenager he was actually physically ahead of most of his generation. We caught up with him, of course, and then most of us overtook him. But even though he did not have the same athletic qualities that I possessed, say, he was always rigorous in the way he thought about the game, always ready to make the sacrifices to get to the top, always a step ahead.After an amazing playing career where he won everything going, he has succeeded where many fail. It is much tougher than people might think for a former player to become a coach, a manager – at least a very successful one. Think about it. How many examples are there compared with the number of former great players you have grown up watching ? Share on Pinterest Share on Twitter World Cup 2018 Thomas Hitzlsperger I respect his energy and will-power. He is an all-or-nothing guy. Didier cannot do anything half-heartedly. If he is going to take on a challenge, it will be with everything he has, 100%, every day. You know with Didier you are getting someone who will give you his all.He has the obsession, the love of the game that every manager needs to be successful. And now he has a great opportunity to make history and join Mario Zagallo and Franz Beckenbauer in the very elite club of those who won the World Cup and then came back and won it as a manager.This France team is very much his team. I think it was not easy for him at first because Didier is the kind of guy who wants to be with his players all the time. I think it was tough for him to get used to the idea of no longer having that full-time involvement that you have as a club manager. He has always been interested in the psychology of our sport, the importance of knowing your teammates or, today, knowing your players.When you are with a club, like when he was with Marseille and when he won the French league with them, he could work daily with his players, get to know what makes each one of them tick, how to get the best out of them individually and collectively. I know he misses that day-to-day interaction but he has adapted. He has had to get used to seeing his players turning up two or three days before an international game and then flying off just hours after the match is over. World Cup France v Croatia is the final a World Cup full of surprises deserves Kylian Mbappé: the fast learner who takes it all in his rapid stride Captain Didier Deschamps receives the World Cup from Michel Platini in 1998, closely followed by friend and teammate Marcel Desailly. Photograph: Gabriel Bouys/EPA Twitter Share on WhatsApp Topics Read more The Observer Read more This is where Didier is strong, insightful and, yes, pragmatic. Two years ago we did not know we would have Kylian Mbappé today. Only two months ago we thought Benjamin Mendy and Djibril Sidibé would be starters at full-back but Didier picked Lucas Hernández and Benjamin Pavard as back-up and they have been two of the great success stories of France’s tournament.Is that luck? I prefer to think Didier is smart and has an eye for a player. He has managed to turn the inexperience and insouciance of some of the younger players into a real strength. Didier was always a leader but a leader through the collective. He has always known how to gee his teammates up and help get the best out of them. And now he is showing the world his ability to do that as a manager. There is only one more game to go. One more win and the second star will be on the France shirt.I am confident that, 20 years after Didier won the World Cup as France captain, he will lift the trophy again as our manager. Share on Messenger France Facebook comment The Recap: sign up for our weekly email of editors’ picks. It feels as if I have known Didier Deschamps all my life. We played together at FC Nantes as kids in their academy and we shared a room then and continued to do so as we both climbed the international ladder in the French junior sides – he was my captain when we played in the European Championship for the under-14s, and then when we were with the U15s, the U17s and the U21s.We both ended up moving to Marseille and we won the Champions League there together – to this day the only success in Europe’s most prestigious competition for a French club. We moved to Italy, I with Milan and Didier with Juventus and we ended up playing together again in England, of course. I admit I was a bit involved in his transfer to Chelsea and we won the FA Cup together in 2000 along with George Weah, of course. I had spoken to Colin Hutchinson, then the director of football, about both of them.I am godfather to his son, Dylan, and he is godfather to my son Virgil. So, of course, you will not catch me saying anything negative about my friend Didier. But that is also because there is not much bad to say about him even if you wanted to.

Celtic captain Scott Brown believes that former team-mate Kieran Tierney could end up at Barcelona or Paris Saint-Germain if he performs well at Arsenal.The Scottish left-back, 22, joined the Gunners in a deal worth £25m (€27m/$30m) on transfer deadline day and will compete with Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal for a starting spot once he recovers from his hernia operation.And 34-year-old midfielder Brown feels that, should the young defender excel, he could earn himself another big move. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? “You don’t know what could happen,” Brown told The Herald. “He could have a fantastic couple of seasons and end up at Barcelona or PSG or wherever.”He also insisted that there are no ill feelings from the Celtic squad towards Tierney for moving on and claimed the club would welcome him back one day if he chose to return.“There are pictures on the wall all over the club of players who have left, and everyone would wish them all the best. They can come back as well, that’s what this club is all about, he said.“I see Ajax bringing players through and selling them on – and they have a party for them leaving. We try and criticise. It’s a different level.“We wish him all the best. We just concentrate on now and [new left back Boli Bolingoli] has to push on and try to get to the levels that Kieran did.”Bolingoli signed as Tierney’s replacement from Rapid Vienna and started the season as Celtic’s first choice left-back while the former’s future was resolved.He made 42 appearances across all competitions in Austria last term, scoring two goals and recording five assists.Those numbers mirror Tierney’s attacking output almost exactly, with the Scotsman managing one goal and six assists from 40 appearances in all competitions last season.The last Celtic defender to make a high-profile move to the Premier League was Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk, who then joined Southampton, and Tierney will hope he can be as successful as the Dutchman has been in his time in England.
zoom Despite reduced passenger volumes due to late Easter, Danish-based shipping and logistics company DFDS reported strong performance in the North Sea in the first quarter of 2017, where freight volumes were up by 10% compared to 2016.The growth was highest on the Netherlands-UK and Sweden-Belgium corridors where capacity was increased, the company said.Cargo volumes in the Baltic Sea were 19.2% above 2016 during 1Q 2017 and flat after adjustment for the addition of a new route between Hanko, Finland, and Paldiski, Estonia. Last year, DFDS acquired the route from Estonian company Navirail OÜ.Additionally, freight volumes in the Channel rose by 3.3% while passenger volumes decreased by 14.4% in 1Q.In France and the Mediterranean, freight volumes in 1Q were 2.8% above 2016 while passenger volumes declined by 17.3% primarily driven by the Eastern timing difference.Overall passenger volumes were 10% lower than last year mainly due to Easter falling in 2Q in 2017 vs 1Q in 2016.What is more, the company’s financial results show that DFDS recorded a 4.3 percent increase in its revenue during 1Q 2017 which rose to DKK 3.2 million from DKK 3.1 million posted in the same period last year.The group’s revenue increased by 4.3% in 1Q and stood at DKK 3.2 million (around USD 0.5 million), against 3.1 million posted in the same quarter a year earlier.“We achieved a 1Q-result ahead of last year. Combined with a continued positive outlook for growth in Europe, we are on track in 2017 to further improve on the all-time high results of last year,” Niels Smedegaard, DFDS’ CEO, commented.In its outlook for 2017, the company said it expects the revenue to increase by around 4% excluding bunker surcharges.In addition, investments are expected to amount to around DKK 1.7 billion in 2017. This includes the purchase of two Channel ferries in June 2017 which were delivered in February 2016.
Both companies say the decision by five partners _ a consortium of state-owned and private investors _ to move forward with LNG Canada’s $40-billion joint venture in Kitimat, B.C., bodes well for major resource projects in the country.But energy consultant Tom Adams says the British Columbia development makes the prospects of a Nova Scotia LNG facility in the near future less likely.He says there is a finite global market for LNG, and that if the B.C. project moves ahead it weakens other projects.“Every time there is a new entrant it puts competitive pressure on all the other proposals,” the independent Toronto-based analyst said.Adams says the “really big boys” have invested in B.C. _ Royal Dutch Shell, Mitsubishi Corp., the Malaysian-owned Petronas, PetroChina Co. and Korean Gas Corp. _ but the Nova Scotia proposals have yet to attract the same calibre of investors.“The majors have by and large stayed out of it, and I think that’s another indication of the relative strengths and weaknesses of the development plans,” he said. “It’s another reason for my continued skepticism with respect to LNG in Nova Scotia.” However, Goldboro LNG has managed to secure a customer.Uniper SE, a German energy firm, has signed a 20-year off-take agreement for half of Goldboro’s permitted output, a coup for the Nova Scotia project. The contract comes with a German government-backed debt guarantee.Mark Brown, vice-president, business development for Pieridae Energy, the firm developing Goldboro LNG, says the B.C. project is good for the entire industry.“Given the global nature of the industry, it sends a positive message to the world that Canada is back,” he said in an email, noting that the Goldboro project is aiming for a final investment decision in the first quarter of 2019. HALIFAX, N.S. – Some see it as a signal of investor confidence in liquefied natural gas megaprojects. Others say it could edge out less competitive LNG proposals in Canada.Either way, final approval of a massive LNG project in northern British Columbia has renewed interest in the fate of two projects slated for Canada’s East Coast.Bear Head LNG, a subsidiary of Australia-based Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd., has a site on the Strait of Canso while Goldboro LNG, a Pieridae Energy Canada project, is adjacent to the Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline on Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore. Meanwhile, Micah Hirschfield with LNG Ltd., the proponent of Bear Head LNG, says the Kitimat investment increases the viability of exporting Canada’s stranded natural gas resource from both the West Coast to Asia and the East Coast to Europe.“The amount of gas being used by LNG Canada barely scratches the surface of the more than 300 years of stranded gas supply that the resource has,” he said in an email.“Both Western Canadian producers and European customers recognize the importance of being able to export Canadian gas from both coasts and we continue to progress and remain committed to bringing LNG from Bear Head to the global energy market.”(THE CANADIAN PRESS)
New Delhi: Excessive consumption of protein can have unwanted side effects on the kidney.Since kidney disease often goes undiagnosed, one should not take additional protein supplements without proper consultation.

In my work with the Victoria Order of Nurses “several” years ago, I met some of the nicest people and have remained friends with many.We often lose track of people as they pursue careers and move on to new places and endeavours. So, it is always nice when some of those friends return to the area for a visit. One such friend is James Boraski.Boraski spent a good part of his life in the Brantford and Waterford areas. He is faithful in returning to visit his mom, Caroline, to wish her a happy birthday. This year, he has a busy schedule planned for this return in early May.After spending many years in the Northwest Territories with his work, he moved to Thunder Bay, Ont., upon retiring. And he has kept himself busy with one of his true loves – his music.Boraski’s musical genres include roots, traditional blues, as well as rock ‘n’ roll. His blues music has won him accolades and awards in Canada and in Memphis, Tenn., at the International Blues Festival. He and his band, Momentary Evolution, were inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame as a master blues band.True to the title of one of CD titles, Comin’ Home, Boraski will be here for two shows on Saturday at the Polish Hall, 154 Pearl St., Brantford.From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., he will be joined by Peter Melkert to present an acoustic show, featuring “some new songs, along with some standard regulars,” states Boraski.And, from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m., Boraski returns to the hall with Momentary Evolution, and featuring Dwayne LaForme and his Boogie Blues Band.Boraski says LaForme is a “good friend and an awesome blues guitar slinger.”Special guest will be Paul James.“These are the only shows I am doing while in the area for an abbreviated family visit back home,” says Boraski.His performances will feature selections from Comin’ Home and his second CD, NVR2L8.Boraski credits his late dad, Leo, for his love of music and inspiring much of his writings.He says he hopes to pass on that same love of music to his own children.Once back in Thunder Bay, Boraski will continue to entertain people at local venues, keeping busy almost every weekend.Brenda Dredge is a freelance writer who lives in Waterford.

Mary Davis Fisher, a prominent US-based writer, artist and motivational speaker who travels around the world advocating for those who share her HIV-positive status, has been appointed as Special Representative for the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).“For more than a decade and a half, Mary has been an eloquent voice for compassion and action,” said UNAIDS Executive Director Dr. Peter Piot in a statement today. “I am confident that the warmth, talent and presence she brings will help UNAIDS send a powerful message that can open hearts, minds and doors of opportunity throughout the world.”About a year after she was diagnosed as HIV positive, Ms. Fisher delivered a landmark speech at the 1992 Republican National Convention, moving the audience in the hall and millions more around the world with her call for action against AIDS. Since then she has been internationally recognized as a chronicler of the global AIDS epidemic.“UNAIDS has worked tirelessly to help every pilgrim on the road to AIDS – and we with AIDS, around the world, are in the debt,” said Ms. Fisher in accepting her appointment as UNAIDS special envoy. “There is so much more to do – and thanks to medical sciences, there is so much more we can do to prevent babies and young people from becoming HIV positive.”Currently, nearly 40 million people are living with HIV/AIDS worldwide, according to UNAIDS, which estimates that every minute a child either dies of an AIDS-related illness or becomes infected with HIV.A former White House assistant and television producer, Ms. Fisher recently returned from a UNAIDS fact-finding trip to Zambia, where she focused on the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls. In 1992, Ms. Fisher founded the Family AIDS Network, which she closed down in 2000 in order to establish The Mary Fisher CARE (Clinical AIDS Research and Education) Fund. Based at the University of Alabama at Bingham, the Care Fund supports long-term, practical research to help people living with HIV, especially women, both in the United States and Africa. Ms. Fisher, who has authored five books, is also an active member of the leadership Council of the Global Coalition on Women and AIDS.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Foreign Minister Bob Carr has answered allegations made to him in relation to FYROM, by Perth federal MP Luke Simpkins. In written questions put to Carr in Parliament last September, Mr Simpkins made a number of accusations, one of which suggested Greek diplomats in Australia – in collaboration with unnamed anti-Skopje activists – were involved in drawing up a ‘blacklist’ of Australian citizens with connections to FYROM; the contention being that the ‘black-list’ was then used by the Greek government to decline those listed entry into Greece, on the basis of them being “a threat to public policy or internal security”. Minister Carr’s answer – published in Hansard on Thursday – said that he was not aware of any such allegations, but that the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade “is aware that the Greek government maintains a National Record of Undesirable Foreigners. “As it is for Australia, it is the discretion of the Greek government to decide whom it allows to enter its territory,” said the Foreign Minister. In response to Mr Simpkins’ other line of questioning in relation to Australian passport holders being refused entry into Greece because of Greece no longer recognising certain village and town names, Mr Carr said that on 6 September 2012, “the Australian Embassy in Athens made representations to the Greek Ministry for Foreign Affairs about three separate cases of Australian citizens who were denied entry into Greece. “These representations were made on the basis that the Australians were allegedly carrying ‘invalid’ passports. “The Greek government has advised that these individuals were denied entry because Greece does not accept official documents from third countries which contain ‘inaccurate denominations’ of Greek geographical places.” The Minister’s statement added: “This measure is applied by the Greek government to the passports of all foreign nationals. The smartraveller website maintained by the Australian Government cautions individuals in its travel advice for Greece that they may encounter problems entering Greece on travel documents that use place names not officially recognised by Greece.” The Minister said that the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade was “unaware of any cases where individuals were denied entry to other European Union countries on the basis of denied access to Greece”. Mr Simpkins’ allegations were described last week as “pandering to FYROM nationalism” by the Australian Macedonian Advisory Council, who with the Australian Hellenic Council, expressed disappointment at what they referred to as the Liberal MP’s “irresponsible” actions.
Breath of the Wild’s Hyrule keeps yielding secrets. Nintendo It might have two years since The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild basically ruined all other video games through its sheer magnificence, but Hyrule has yet to reveal all its secrets. YouTuber GameXplain outlined a delightful reference to a 2002 classic The Wind Waker. It turns out sleepy Lurelin Village, which lies in the southeast of Breath of the Wild’s Hyrule, is a whole lot like Wind Waker’s super chill starting area, Outset Island. The layout of the trees, buildings, a ladder leading up to a lookout point and the mountain in the background are all uncannily similar. 0 Now playing: Watch this: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild goes epic on Nintendo… 2:14 29 Photos Tags Video Games Gaming Post a comment Share your voice “It’s just crazy that this one village is hiding such a big secret, and it’s just been staring us in the face the entire time,” GameXplain says in his video.If you take the series’ confusing timeline into account — Wind Waker’s flooded Hyrule eventually becomes Breath of the Wild’s wide-open world — it’s entirely possible that Outset Island eventually became Lurelin Village as the waters receded and the topography shifted.Let’s hope Breath of the Wild 2 proves to be just as rich, whenever we get our hands on it. You can’t play Wind Waker on Nintendo Switch at the moment. The game originally came out on GameCube and got re-released on Wii U in 2013. But Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa gave us hope last week by saying the company is “thinking about” extending its Switch Online subscription service to include N64 and GameCube games — so Wind Waker might come to the hybrid console in future.Nintendo didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on the Easter egg.

There’s no timeline for reopening the $24 million Bethel pool, which closed right after the grand opening this past Saturday due to a sprinkler system issue.Download AudioActing City Manager Pete Williams says the city wants to have experts look at the system, in light of the recent devastating fire at the new Alcohol Treatment center.Bethel residents enjoy the new pool. (Photo by Ben Matheson / KYUK)“As we speak they are trying to determine what the problem is, until they can determine what it is and what’s needed for the fix, it’s hard to give a timeline of when it will be open again,” said Williams.Doug Cobb works for ProDev, the project management firm, and is in Bethel trying to figure out the issue.“We have pressure at the hydrant and there’s something inconsistent in the building, we have gotten the system to work successfully several times, but to pass that test that has to be done over and over, and over. That’s what we’re troubleshooting,” said Cobb.Williams says the crews thought they had found the problem Thursday morning, but another issue popped up.The state Fire Marshall granted the city an exception last Saturday to host the grand opening, even though inspectors the day before found the pressure to run the sprinkler system to be inadequate.Cobb says a fire sprinkler specialist from the Lower 48 has been consulted in the troubleshooting.
Roy McPherson looks at the David Rubin mural on the back wall of McPherson Music. (Photo by Leila Khiery, KRBD – Ketchikan)McPherson Music has been the cornerstone of Ketchikan’s music scene since the 1980s. The shop has been much more than just a music store. The McPhersons have offered music lessons and led jazz and concert bands to help entertain the whole community through cold, rainy winters.Now, though, McPherson Music is for sale.Listen nowMcPherson Music survived the population decline after Ketchikan’s pulp mill closed, multiple recessions and competition from direct-mail catalog companies.But the internet, with its promise of low prices and free shipping, was the final blow.Roy McPherson leads the way through the bare, echoey shop. Walls that once held hundreds of guitars on display are empty. The pianos, amps, speakers and drum sets are gone.Roy McPherson points out signatures of some of his former students on a pole at McPherson Music. (Photo by Leila Kheiry, KRBD – Ketchikan)“Of course, it was all covered with photographs and things all down the hall. This room was full of pictures,” McPherson said. “But, we have to get it ready in case it goes because there’s so much to move.”The store hasn’t sold yet, but Roy and Tina McPherson are prepared to vacate. They even have a spot ready in their home for a colorful mural by Ketchikan artist and musician David Rubin. The mural on the back wall depicts longtime members of various McPherson-led bands, along with Roy himself.The bands are a huge part of McPherson Music. They started in the late 1990s, when Roy – a former high school band teacher — and Tina – who plays trombone — decided to form a youth jazz band.McPherson said forming the Windjammers was Tina’s idea, but the band members picked the name.“And we had about 32 kids sign up, something like that,” McPherson said. And more kids wanted to join so they started a second one. That became the Soundwaves. Soon, both bands were full.“And then, we decided well, let’s start a class,” McPherson said. “We’ll call it Discovering Jazz Fundamentals. We thought we’ll have a dozen kids, maybe. We’ll get them ready for the Soundwaves. 33 signed up.”The Windjammers perform at McPherson Music. (Photo by Keila Khiery, KRBD – Ketchikan)Youth band enrollment later declined as the population of school kids dropped. So McPherson scaled back to just the Windjammers. They recruited adults to fill some holes in the band, and the kids grew up.“And now the Windjammers are all adults,” McPherson said. “And it’s a red-hot band. There is not a weakness in that band. They can play anything.”A few days later, the Windjammers gather for a free concert at the store. Drummer Kim Kleinschmidt warms up before the performance, drumming out a rapid beat on a table top. He worked at McPherson Music for decades, and said the store gave him a second chance at a career in the music business,“Because I didn’t complete my college degree in performance,” Kleinschmidt began. “To come back and work with Roy – the finest educator I ever worked with, even including all the college career I had in Washington State.”Windjammers tenor sax and flute player Jamie Karlson is the music teacher at Schoenbar Middle School. She was a toddler when she first walked into McPherson Music.“I grew up in this store,” Karlson said. “I think my Mom had us coming in when I was two. And so, coming in and growing up with them has been awesome. I started playing flute in their Discovery Jazz Band, their youngest ensemble, when I was in seventh grade.”Karlson said she’s not sure she would have had the same career if McPherson Music hadn’t been there for her. And, she said it will be a sad day when the store sells. Karlson points to some of the metal support poles in the shop, covered with signatures.“You see all these names of these kids that have been here years and had these experiences. Some of them have gone on to do incredible things and some of them have passed away and we honor their memory,” Karlson said. “It’s just — this place has a lot of history.”One of the kids who passed away was Sam Pitcher, who died in 2003 at age 16. A music scholarship was founded in his name, and there’s a display of photos on the back wall showing scholarship winners.Roy McPherson leads the Windjammers during a free jazz concert at McPherson Music. (Photo by Leila Kheiry, KRBD – Ketchikan)Karlson’s photo is there, along with many others. Earlier, when the store was empty, Roy McPherson gave a rundown of what instrument each of those kids played, where they ended up and what they’re doing now.“She went through school at Brigham Young University and is now a teacher,” McPherson said, pointing to one girl, then the next. “She has a degree in music. She still plays French horn. She played in community groups in Portland. She’s now an engineer. No, yeah, she’s an engineer.”Like Karlson, some of the kids pictured on the wall are in the Windjammers. There’s also a City Council member on saxophone; a boat captain on trombone; and a physician on guitar. It’s a true community band.A good crowd shows up for the concert. McPherson leans against one of those poles covered with his students’ names as he introduces the band and the Count Basie song they’re about to play.“We used to pull this piece out every once in a while, see if the band was maturing,” he told the audience. “It would beat us up and we’d put it away. Next year, we’d pull it out again and get a little closer. Now we just pull it out and play it, because this band can do it.”And they did.The store might be for sale, but the band isn’t going anywhere. McPherson plans to continue leading the Windjammers and his concert band, keeping that music magic alive.

A phone listing for her could not be found.

gene-editing therapy The patient named Layla received modified immune cells from a donor Nature reports the second-ever trial of the gene-editing therapy and the first for cancer All other treatments for Layla failed leading her doctors to obtain special dispensation to try the largely untested procedure Several months afterwards her doctors say she is doing very well The therapy works by taking immune cells called T-cells from a healthy donor and modifying the genes by exposing them to a particular enzyme This step allows the foreign T-cells to be changed in a way that the patient’s immune system won’t attack them once they’re injected into the patient The gene modification also protects the cells from cancer-fighting drugs the patient takes The immune system of the patient is then destroyed Nature reports and replaced with the new cells The procedure isn’t intended to be a permanent cure says immunologist Waseem Qasim of Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust in
