The name pays tribute to the 30-year collaboration between the bank and the AHA. For three decades, both have united in the fight against heart disease and stroke, the nation’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers of both men and women. Survivors of heart disease and stroke, heart health champions and AHA advocates each with unique, inspiring stories will ride on the float as it travels through Pasadena on New Year’s Day. It will be decorated with more than 15,000 flowers and will include a daytime fireworks display. Phoenix Decorating Company will design and build the float that will stand 25 feet high, 18 feet wide and 55 feet long and is estimated to weigh 25,000 pounds.To add to the celebration, the familiar song by the Bee Gees,“Stayin’ Alive,” will be playing in the background. As the lyrics appropriately point out, “whether you’re a brother or whether you’re a mother, you’re stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive.” The tune aligns with Union Bank and the AHA’s mission to save lives by reducing the number of deaths attributed to heart disease and stroke. Furthermore, the AHA often uses the tempo of the song to teach people the correct rate of chest compressions when performing CPR. Studies show that when CPR training uses this song to teach the technique, people are more likely to remember the correct rhythm and feel more confident performing the life-saving skill.For 30 years, Union Bank has been completely engaged in multiple aspects of the AHA’s work, including fundraising, education, volunteer leadership, employee involvement and health messaging. In the last eight years alone, the bank’s employees and clients have donated nearly $7 million in support of the AHA’s critical research, education, and prevention programs.Union Bank’s support for the AHA is one facet of its broader commitment to community reinvestment throughout the areas where it operates. Last year, Union Bank contributed more than $13.7 million in charitable contributions to a wide range of non-profit organizations, and its employees donated nearly 75,000 hours of volunteer time to make a difference in their communities.“We are truly excited to participate in the parade and all the tradition and pageantry that it has come to represent. This latest manifestation of our long-standing relationship with the AHA speaks directly to the heart of our mission to empower men and women to live longer, healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke,” said Pierre Habis, head of the Consumer and Business Bank for Union Bank.“We are honored to join Union Bank at the Tournament of Roses in celebration of three decades of collaboration to save lives and create a culture of health in our communities. Our alliance has made a huge impact through critical research funding and community outreach. We look forward to beginning our 30th year by bringing a healthy message to the millions of people who watch the Rose Parade,” said Kathy Rogers, Executive Vice President for the American Heart Association Western States Affiliate.The 127th annual Rose Parade will take place on New Year’s Day 2016 in Pasadena, California. Originally started on January 1, 1890, the event is produced by the non-profit Tournament of Roses Association. The Rose Parade is an integral part of America’s New Year Celebration® and includes decorative floats, marching bands, and equestrian units. This year’s theme grew out of the unique partnership between the Pasadena Tournament of Roses and the National Park Service.About the Tournament of Roses®The Tournament of Roses is a volunteer organization that annually hosts the Rose Parade®, the Rose Bowl Game® and a variety of associated events. Nine hundred thirty-five volunteer members act as ambassadors of the organization and contribute upwards of 80,000 hours of manpower each year. The 127th Rose Parade presented by Honda and themed “Find Your Adventure,” will take place Friday, January 1, 2016, followed by the 102nd Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual.

By Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsNow the fun begins.The Kootenay Ice kick off the 2011-12 B.C. Major Midget Hockey League season with plenty of optimism as the interior based squad heads to Vancouver Island for a two-game set Saturday and Sunday in Nanaimo against the North Island Silvertips.And new head coach Mario DiBella isn’t shy about what his goal is for this new group of 15-17-year-old midget hockey players.“We are looking to make the playoffs for the first time in Ice history,” stated the veteran bench boss.That goal will not be easy to achieve after the Ice, under the coach last season of Simon Wheeldon, lost the likes of 18-goal scorer Jesse Knowler of Castlegar and Nelson’s Dryden Hunt to the Western Hockey League and sniper Luke Bertolucci to the Trail Smoke Eaters of the BCHL.However, DiBella believes he has the players ready to fill the skates of the rookie Tier I hockey players.“We have Jake Lucchini (Trail), Darren Medeiros (Castlegar) and Quinn Klimchuk (Castlegar) who are equally as talented as the (Hunt, Knowler and Bertolucci),” DiBella said of his three second-year players.“We’ve also added Mitch Foyle (Fruitvale), Jeremy McGregor (Christina Lake) and Brandon Savaia (Grand Forks) as talented first years that can put the busier in the basket.”The Ice has three grads from the Nelson Minor Hockey Association in Colton Dachwitz, Greyson Reitmeier and late edition Brandon Sookro.Cole Arcuri, thought to be a lock to make the Ice at defence, decided to return to the Okanagan Hockey Association.After the Island trip, the Ice are idle until opening the home part of the season October 8-9 at the NDCC Arena against Okanagan Rockets.The home dates will shift around rinks in the West Kootenay, with stops in Castlegar, Trail and Grand Forks.DiBella likes the idea of showcasing the players throughout the region.“I feel it’s good for the program and it provides home games where the players live,” said DiBella, who has former Nelson Leaf assistant coach Sean Dooley with him behind the Ice bench.The B.CMMHL was established in 2004 to provide elite level 15, 16 and 17 year olds the opportunity to play at a high level within their age group.Each year all Major Midget League teams have the opportunity to compete for the National Midget Championship.Kootenay finished the 2010-11 season in 10th spot with a 8-25-7 record with the Vancouver Northwest Giants winning the BCMMHL [email protected]
Comments CHESS–Ugandan chess players will be involved in a National Chess Championship this month for the first time in four years.The championship, slated October 19-22 at Hotel Africana in Kampala, was last held in 2013, with officials blaming lack of funds for putting the prestigious game of wits in a coma.But with the Garry Kasparov Chess Foundation Africa coming on board as sponsors, the championship is off the life support not headed for the mortician’s garney but out to feel the fresh breeze again.The championship has been held just twice in recent times, and International Master Elijah Emojong won the very last edition.IM Arthur Ssegwanyi won the other in 2011 ahead of the then National Junior champion FM Haruna Nsubuga on a tie-break.While it’s not held regularly, the national championship is actually used to select a couple of players for the national team.Winning the event automatically earns one a slot in the national team in both the Open and ladies category.IM Arthur Ssegwanyi earned his maiden appearance in the national team in 2011 following his triumph at the championship.It is supposed to be that way but because it’s held occasionally, UCF has been using the Olympiad qualifiers to determine who takes the number one slot in the team like the most recent in 2016 and 2014 when Ssegwanyi and Kawuma topped the qualifiers, respectively.This usually happens in the Olympiad years. Because the nationals were last held in 2013, Emojong will go into this one as the defending champion.
9 July 2014 South Africa’s men’s and women’s hockey teams will be aiming to build on successful endings to the recent World Cup when they take part in the Investec Cup in London from Wednesday. On Wednesday, the women open their challenge against Scotland, while the men’s first outing will be against Ireland. With the Commonwealth Games starting in Glasgow on 23 July, the competition is an excellent opportunity for the South African teams to fine-tune their games in London. The Investec Cup will also celebrate the opening of the new London Olympics 2012 legacy venue, the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre, which has now become England hockey’s national stadium.Line-ups England, Scotland, Ireland and South Africa, all Commonwealth Games contestants, make up the men’s line-up in London, while the women’s teams are also Commonwealth Games sides, namely England, Scotland, Wales and South Africa. “We will only have one training here before the Scotland match so we be looking at getting our processes right in that game,” South African women’s captain Marsha Cox said on the bus to the venue on Tuesday afternoon. World number 11 South Africa beat Japan, the world’s ninth-ranked team 2-0 to finish ninth at the World Cup and if they get can back into the groove quickly it will stand them in good stead. They also scored an impressive 4-1 win over England, who went into the tournament ranked third in the world. Double Olympian defender Lenise Marais, so cruelly denied a World Cup experience after serious injury forced her out at the eleventh hour, returns to the women’s team.Tough Irish challenge Looking ahead to his side’s opener, South African men’s captain Austin Smith said after arriving at the team’s accommodation at East London University (ELU) that the Irish punch above their weight. “The last time we met, before the Olympics in 2012, they beat us, and we will only have had one training session (Wednesday night), so we will be focusing more on getting ourselves familiar with the game plan and carrying on where we left off during the 6-2 win over Malaysia at the World Cup in June,” said Smith. He also said former South African men’s assistant coach Craig Fulton, who is now the head of the Ireland coaching staff, will be familiar with the South African style of play.South African Investec Cup fixtures (SA time) 9 JulySA women vs Scotland 12:00SA men vs Ireland 18:15 10 JulySA women vs England 14:15SA men vs England 20:30 12 JulySA men vs Scotland 10.45SA women vs Wales 18:15 13 JulyPlayoffs for final placings SAinfo reporter

WASHINGTON — U.S. industrial production climbed 0.6 per cent on surging output at mines and utilities. But manufacturing production was flat.The Federal Reserve says that utility output rose 3.3 per cent as power companies were busier because of unusually cold weather. Mining output rose 1.7 per cent on higher production at coal mines and oil and gas drillers.But manufacturing was flat in November after falling 0.1 per cent in October. Factories are contending with a stronger dollar that makes their products more expensive in foreign markets, slowing global growth and import taxes that raise their costs.Paul Wiseman, The Associated Press
