PROUD TO SERVE: Shiver reflects on D-Day offensive

first_img You Might Like Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Like many young boys of his time, James Shiver dreamed of flying an airplane. But he knew it was only dream … until the start of the war in Europe in September 1939.Shiver had two brothers who were serving their country so, instead of going to school the morning of his beginning the 12th grade, he ran off, fibbed about his age and joined the service.                 Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By The Penny Hoarder Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Shiver served with the 2nd Armored Division under Patton. His division went ashore on Omaha Beach on D-Day + 1.  Shiver said he prayed all the way that he would just make it to the beach. The M-4 Sherman tank that Shiver piloted was among those in the U.S. armored division that were deemed death traps.In the heat of battle, it was said that it was as dangerous inside a M-4 Sherman tank as it was outside. Shiver said the German tanks, the Panther King and the Tiger, were much larger than the M-4 Shermans. The Allies had to fight their way across Normandy and it took six weeks to gain control.“We had to fight our way through the thick, heavy hedgerows,” Shiver said. “The Germans hid their tanks in haystacks. One stack would be hay and another would be a tank. We would come out of the hedgerows and our tanks would be like sitting ducks.”Shiver said he saw many American tanks knocked out. Once, his tank was hit and one crew member was killed, maybe two, he didn’t know for sure.When his tank was disabled, Shiver hid one night in a school building. During the night, he heard the clanging of German soldiers’ boots on the cobblestone streets. Fear was a daily companion.Shiver said he was among the fortunate and blessed to make it home. He was certain that it was, in part, because he had a praying father, Willie Shiver.Now, in his 90s, Shiver’s memory is not as exacting as it once was. But he remembers clearly the pride of service that he experienced. He is just as committed to country as he was that early morning in 1940 when he decided he had something more important than school that day. So, he joined the United States Armay without any regrets – ever.

He believed it was his duty as well as a high honor to serve, whether in the air or on the ground. Shiver served from 1940 until 1945.He first served with Gen. George Patton at Fort Benning, Georgia and then with the Louisiana Maneuvers before going to North Africa with Patton and then to Sicily.Before Shiver could make it to the shoreline in Sicily, he was slammed against the ship with such force that his arm was temporarily paralyzed.

US in peril as Urena double delivers for Costa Rica

first_imgThe Americans are now six points adrift of leaders Mexico and Costa Rica, who both have 14 points and look certain to lock up the top two automatic qualifying spots.But the US now face a battle for the third automatic place, with Panama one point behind and Honduras favoured to go level with the Americans later Friday if they beat Trinidad and Tobago in Port of Spain.The result leaves the US with little margin for error as they face a tricky away trip to Honduras next Tuesday before games against Panama and Trinidad next month.Arena must now somehow turnaround his team’s display for next week’s clash with Honduras. “We’ll take a day to reflect on this and come up with a plan,” Arena said. “But clearly walking away without any points tonight is very disappointing.“We’ll move on. This is how you deal in competition sports. You don’t win every game.“Tonight was not our night. We didn’t play well, but we still have three games left in the competition. We’re still in position to qualify for the World Cup.”Warning signs came early on Friday when Urena seized on a wobble by US defender Tim Ream to steal in.That early scare was a foretaste of things to come for the American defence, which never looked completely comfortable in the opening 45 minutes.At the other end the US carved out a series of promising chances, with Christian Pulisic at the heart of the action.Costa Rica’s David Guzman, who had escaped sanction for an ugly challenge on Portland Timbers midfielder Darlington Nagbe, was booked for tripping Pulisic in the 13th minute as the youngster darted forward.The Americans looked to have genuine claims for a penalty in the 24th minute when Kendall Waston appeared to haul down Jozy Altidore but referee John Pitti waved away the appeals.Six minutes later disaster struck for the US. A poor clearing kick from goalkeeper Tim Howard was headed back towards the US territory and with Ream and Geoff Cameron out of position, Urena burst through the middle.The San Jose Earthquakes striker turned Ream inside out before angling a low shot across Howard into the far corner to make it 1-0.As tension mounted in the second half Costa Rica’s Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas twice pulled off superb saves from Pulisic and Altidore to preserve the visitors lead.With the US pushing forward Urena then grabbed his second, punishing another blunder to stroke home his finish past Howard.Share on: WhatsApp Harrison, United States | AFP | Costa Rica striker Marco Urena scored twice to leave the United States’ World Cup qualification hopes in jeopardy here Friday as the 2014 quarter-finalists grabbed a 2-0 away victory.San Jose Earthquakes forward Urena exposed slack defending in the US back four in the 30th minute to fire Costa Rica ahead at the Red Bull Arena.Urena then pounced on another sloppy piece of US defending eight minutes from time to complete a miserable night for the hosts.It was Costa Rica’s first win in a World Cup qualifying game on US soil since 1985.The defeat — the first in a competitive fixture since coach Bruce Arena took over last year — leaves the US campaign to reach the 2018 finals in Russia in the balance.last_img read more

Daffy Duck Found in Dino Park

first_imgA fossil duck from the Cretaceous has been discovered, indicating that the branch of birds including waterfowl already coexisted with the dinosaurs.  A press release from NC State explains the significance of the paper published in Nature1 this week.  Dr. Julia Clarke and colleagues say this means that “at least duck, chicken and ratite bird relatives were coextant with non-avian dinosaurs.”1Clarke et al., “Definitive fossil evidence for the extant avian radiation in the Cretaceous,” Nature 433, 305 – 308 (20 January 2005); doi:10.1038/nature03150.Wow, those early birds must have evolved from dinosaurs pretty fast.  This seems to require a dramatically accelerated rate of lucky mutations per year.  Beware, Charlie: gambling is addictive.(Visited 30 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

What Has Your Attention Isn’t What Needs Your Attention

first_imgThe reason I created the Outcomes Planner is that Time Management (which is really “Me Management”) is the difference between success and something less. Being able to know what your most important outcomes are and devoting your time and energy to those things before doing anything else will radically change your results.But there is more to producing the outcomes you need. You also need to remove distractions. Let me ask you a couple of questions as a way of diagnosing whether you are distracted, or more likely, how distracted you really are.When you are working, is your email open or closed?How long did you wait after waking up to look at your email?How far is your smartphone from you right now?How many apps do you allow to provide you with a notification?How long after waking up did you check Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Instagram?One of the primary reasons salespeople don’t produce the results they need—or the results they are capable of—is that they are so distracted that they literally don’t do the work.Things That Are Not SalesLet’s start by looking at email. Most people I know work with their email open, as if the most important work they have to do each day is answer email. Not only does it pull their attention away from the most important outcomes they need to achieve, because most of the emails are work-related in some (often small) way, it feels like work.If you work in sales, you have two primary outcomes: 1) create new opportunities by scheduling appointments with prospects and clients to explore change, and 2) capture (win) those opportunities. Everything else is simply a commentary on those two things. It’s not that you don’t need to deal with your email, but rather what is your priority. Your work is not answering email.I am sticking with salespeople here as we wade into a tough conversation about the smartphone. The smartphone is designed to make you more productive, but some of the apps make that next to impossible. Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter are designed to control your attention in the very same way that a Casino is designed to separate you from your money. These apps, and others like them, are not products that you use; your attention is the product these companies sell to advertisers.When you add in notifications for every text, email, direct message, and flight status (one I refuse to turn off), you have allowed a single device to have more control over your attention than any device deserves. Have you recognized how much power this small device has over your attention?Are You a Poor Example?Now, I am turning my focus to sales leaders, leaders, entrepreneurs—and anyone else in a leadership role with one single question: Are you providing the people in your charge with an example of the behaviors you want to see from them? Or, alternatively, are you not all that different than they are?If you are with a client, your phone is turned off and your email is closed. When you are in a meeting, you aren’t checking the social site every 12 minutes. You are right to give your client your full focus and attention, but that being true, why then would you not give the rest of your most important priorities that same respect?Want to do twice as much work in half the time? Follow this plan:Close the browser and your email.Turn off all notifications and put your phone on Do Not Disturb (if you have kids, put them in your favorites list so their texts and calls come through even when your phone is on Do Not Disturb).Work for 90 minutes on what is most important without checking email, the smartphone, or the social apps.Recognize how much work you completed and how good that felt.If what has your attention doesn’t deserve your attention, shift your focus to the bigger outcomes and avoid making small choices.

Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Nowlast_img read more

CWG 2014, Day 5: Indian shooters bring 1 gold, 2 silvers

first_imgJitu Rai’Pistol King’ Jitu Rai kept his reputation intact by clinching the gold medal before Gagan Narang and Gurpal Singh claimed a silver each to continue the shooters’ heroics while Vijender Singh led the charge in boxing by advancing to the quarterfinals on the fifth day of competitions in the 20th Commonwealth Games here today.The 26-year-old Rai, world number 4 in the event, gave ample display of his class by taking the honour in the men’s 50 m pistol event as the Indian shooters continued to dominate the ranges.Gurpal Singh also took the spotlight with his silver-winning effort in the same event while Narang, taking part for the first time in the 50 m rifle prone event, had to be content with a silver as the shooters did the bulk of the medal shopping during the day.Star Indian boxer Vijender (75kg) continued his sublime form to enter the quarterfinals along with gritty youngster L Devendro Singh (49kg), but there was heartbreak for Shiva Thapa (56kg), who went down to Olympic bronze-medallist Michael Conlan of Northern Ireland.Vijender, a former Olympic and World Championships bronze-medallist, outpunched Namibia’s Mujandjae Kasuto 3-0 in a lopsided contest to make the last-eight stage.Such was the former world number one’s domination that he managed a perfect 10 score from every judge in each of the three rounds.With the addition of three more medals, India’s overall haul swelled to 25 with seven gold, 11 silver and seven bronze and were placed fourth in the medal standings.Australia were at the top with 27 gold, 21 silver and 27 bronze medals, followed by England (24 gold, 17 silver, 19 bronze) and hosts Scotland (12 gold, eight silver and 11 bronze).advertisementRai shot 194.1 to bag his first Commonwealth Games gold on debut while Gurpal had an aggregate of 187.2 to win the silver, his first international medal. Australia’s Daniel Repacholi was third.With the three medals, India’s medal tally from the Barry Buddon Shooting Center has shot up to 12 (4, 7, 1), three more than England who have eight, including three gold medals.Nepal-born Rai, who won a gold (in 10m air pistol) and a silver (in 50m pistol) in the World Cup last month, was third in the first series but then recovered quickly and led the field throughout after that.last_img read more
