Squaw Valley Saw Record Snowfall and a Devastating Rain Event in the 2016-2017 Ski Season

Irony is a force that exists in all areas of human life. We plan a day of kite flying, but there is no wind. We go to the beach, and the clouds open up ruining our plans. There was an instance of irony for Squaw Valley, the iconic ski resort in the Lake Tahoe area, they were preparing for an early snowstorm in November, but what they received instead of snow was ten inches of rain. The rains fell rapidly, and in unusual volumes that were not absorbed by the natural filtration system of the ground, rivulets accumulated and unfortunately flowed over the soil picking up contaminants and deposited into a freshly constructed water supply at the newly established Upper Mountain Area of Squaw Valley. The restaurants there at the Upper Mountain were dutifully closed and resort guests were notified of the condition and were provided with bottled water for drinking, but the effect on Squaw Valley had to be disheartening.

This ironic turn of events and the subsequent fouling of the Upper Mountain water supply was first reported on November 8, to the Placer County Department of Environmental Health.

Since then the water has been treated and shows signs of improvement. No health issues have been reported, but Squaw Valley skiers are prohibited from drinking the water until the Placer County Environmental Health Agency gives their seal of approval for the quality of the water to the resort.

This season Squaw Valley has been blessed with near-record and record snowfalls. The previous monthly high of 202 inches was exceeded this January when 212 inches were recorded even before the end of the month. After the unfortunate rainfall of last year, this will serve the resort and their skiers very nicely. As the ski year winds down, Squaw Valley will have a hard time forgetting the irony of a rainfall at the beginning of the ski year for 2016-2017.

Securus Technologies Challenges Their Main Competitor, GTL To A Bake-Off

Securus Technologies works in close partnerships with the corrections departments and with the public safety sector to monitor and evaluate communications systems dealing with prisoners. Earlier this year, they announced a challenge bake off competition against GTL, their main rival.


Efficiency and Costs


The challenge was meant to gauge which firm was offering the better product. The criteria used by the independent judges on the competition were focused on efficiency and cost implications of the technologies being assessed. Speaking at a news conference, the CEO Richard A. Smith remarked that the challenge was inspired by the need to disapprove the sentiments aired by their rival, GTL.


Independents Judges


GTL has always reiterated the fact that their products and services are comparable in every sense of the word to those offered by Securus Technologies. According to Rick, the CEO, however, nothing could be further from the reality.


The CEO is convinced that the challenge is akin to a one-horse race especially considering the amount of time, effort, and resources Securus has already invested-heavily- in the industry. Ricky went ahead to quote a staggering figure of $700 million as the money his firm had used to acquire related franchises and to develop and market their unique communication platforms.


$700 Million


The $700 million has been utilized in coming up with a robust tech platform which has a myriad of useful and intuitive features. The funds have catered to building the behemoth state of the art communications center as well. Securus has ended up with an entirely centralized platform, whereas GTL is still using the outdated localized platforms. The latter are more prone to fails. Hopefully, the challenge will put the matter to rest once and for all as to which company is superior.

Securus is defined as a non-profit prison calling technology firm. Its headquarters are in Dallas, Texas and it got founded in 1986. Currently, the firm employs over 1000 people in the over 2500 prisons across the nation and abroad.

New Clinical Trials Give Positive Results and New Hope for Multiple Sclerosis Patients

Results from clinical trials conducted by the immune tolerance network (ITN) under the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a part of the National Institute of Health (NIH) gave promising results in the form of possible long-term remission of multiple sclerosis in the participating patients. Multiple sclerosis is a condition that causes the body’s immune system to attack and destroy the central nervous system in its victims. The most prevalent symptoms of multiple sclerosis include chronic pains, general weakness, fatigue, and difficulties while communicating. Currently, the most common type of treatment for MS is medication.

However, in most cases, the condition relapses and the symptoms eventually worsen. 69% of the participants completed the treatment without any cases of new brain lesions, recurring multiple sclerosis symptoms, or any progression in their disability. This new MS treatment, dubbed High-dose Immunosuppressive Therapy, and Autologous Hematopoietic Cell Transplant (HDIT/HCT) gives a flicker of hope to patients suffering from this devastating conditions. However, experts maintain that more trials need to be done until higher success rates can be guaranteed. The clinical trials lasted for five years, and during that period, most of the participants’ MS remained in remission, and the condition appeared to have been stabilized.
