Trauma Tuesday: Longboarding Fails Edition

first_imgIn honor of us anticipating stepping on a Freebord for the first time, here are some longboarding fails for your Trauma Tuesday.Is there anything more terrifying than going really, really fast on a longboard? If you have not had the pleasure, let me assure you it is. Just stepping onto a longboard on flat ground is enough to send shivers down the spine, for one reason: they are built for speed and there is no control. The longboard is the toboggan of concrete, the land rocket of asphalt, the derailed train headed right for the side of a mountain. One high speed wobble and you are picking your teeth out of gravel, getting a skin graft, or looking at your own bones poking through the skin. The results are stunningly blunt, and the consequence severe.As this video can attest, the worst part is you don’t even have to be going fast for things to go horribly wrong. My personal favorite is the robust gentleman at :53 who appears to be maching down a busy street with cars coming the other way as he gets a little cattywompass, narrowly misses an oncoming car, starts a long, hilarious groan as he anticipates his own demise, and then tries to run out the crash going 45 mph. At least he made it to the relative safety of the grass before going ass over teakettle.Wear a helmet.See more of Trauma Tuesday here!last_img read more

Why your child most likely won’t be going back to school in May

first_imgFurther complicating this decision in Dr. Buyck’s opinion is the rest of the economy, including the reopening of non-essential businesses. He expects schools and businesses to reopen at roughly the same time. He said because the current New York On Pause deadline is May 15, schools will be unlikely to open back up before June. (WBNG) — Despite progress being made, there are still several hurdles that need to be cleared before students can return to school. Dr. Buyck said it is possible schools will still open up some time this school year. He told 12 News the state will most likely be the one to make the decision on whether districts need to extend their school year further into the summer. Dr. Allen Buyck, superintendent of Broome-Tioga BOCES, laid out a plan for 12 News on Wednesday about what will need to happen in order for local school districts to reopen. Many parts of the plan include questions that haven’t been answered, such as will all students come back to school immediately, will lunch be eaten in the cafeteria and what will happen if someone at a school tests positive after the school has reopened.center_img Dr. Buyck said most of the important decisions will come from the state level, like when New York cancelled Regents Exams for all students this year. He said the state health department along with local departments will have most of the say in determining what’s safe or not as well as which social distancing measures will be implemented. This could include taking the temperature of anyone who walks in the door, or making sure people stay at least six feet apart at all times. “If I follow the governor’s reopening strategy and I just do some of the math, he’s talking about having some manufacturing and construction to start after the 15th, then we want to wait for two weeks to see if there’s a continued decline in the data,” Dr. Buyck said Wednesday. “That automatically takes us to June 1st.” Moving forward, Dr. Buyck believes there are many lessons to be learned from this whole experience. First and foremost, he said it shows distance learning could be a viable option for some students. Additionally, he said until a viable vaccine has been created, he expects districts to still take precautions.last_img read more
