first_img*Ignite cinnamon stick and smoke the glass while preparing cocktail. Pour cocktail into smoked glass. ELEVATION REMEDY 1 oz Breckenridge Espresso Vodka Top with coffee Breckenridge Distillery- Earning your turns in the backcountry requires sacrificing some luxuries. But, something that you don’t need to sacrifice is a spectacular après cocktail to cap your amazing day. Leave the Kool-Aid drink mix, Country Time Lemonade powder, and Crystal Light squeeze bottles at home. Instead, think ‘elevated cocktail experience’ and pack ingredients like a mini bottle of bitters for an Old Fashioned or cinnamon sticks for a hot smoked cider. Breck Distillery’s Liquid Chef Billie Keithley created 6 easy cocktails to take your drinking experience to new ‘elevations.’ Photo Credit: Jessie Unruh/Breckenridge Distillery & Ian Fohrman/The Public Works TIP: Cinnamon sticks are flammable. Use them to help start your fire, as a potpourri for the hut, or as the perfect garnish or added flavor to your cocktail. *Pack a mini bottle of bitters. Recycle your orange peels and use berries from your trail mix. CABIN TEA TIP: To make a smoked cocktail, use a smoking log from your fire. Safely remove the log, turn the glass upside down over the smoke, wait a few minutes and add the cocktail mixture to the glass. Swirl it around to get that smokey flavor. Do the same thing with a cinnamon stick to add a cinnamon kick to your cocktails. See the Hot Smoked Cider below. *Shake all ingredients in water bottle. TIP: once the honey stick is empty, snip the other end of the honey stick and reuse it as a straw. Snowball Old Fashioned **Booze is not included in online purchases of this Backcountry Cocktail Kits Backcountry Tea 1 oz Breckenridge Vodka 6 oz hot water Teakoe Tea – Try it with the Berry Bodacious or the Nirvana Limòn Teas Honey stick, clip one end and put open end down Add a squeeze of lemon for added flavor 1 oz Breckenridge Vodka1 packet Emergen-C1 jelly packet6 oz water Optional: Smoke using a fire log The Breck Distillery offers their own Backcountry Cocktail Kit. These Backcountry Cocktail Kits make the Snowball Old Fashioned, Backcountry Tea and the Hot Smoked Cider. Our kits come with a 1000ml Breck Distillery water bottle | $30. Leave the heavy glass bottles behind and use a bladder or a light weight water bottle to transport your booze. Using a bladder allows you to collapse it and save room in your pack for the haul out. Note, one 750 bottle of booze typically serves 17 cocktails. Keep that in mind when you are trying to gauge how much to bring.No need to pack extra ingredients just for a cocktail. Reuse your snacks and tea bags. Use your orange peels for an Old Fashioned. Save some berries from your trail mix and add that as a delicious garnish. Reuse a tea bag more than once.Go mini. There are a ton of bitters companies that make mini bitters bottles. Check out Strongwater Herbal Bitters. If you can’t find one, take a small baggy of bitters.Use the environment. Melt and boil snow for extra water. Need ice? Get packing….snowballs, that is. If you can’t leave them outside overnight, pack the snowballs tight, otherwise they will melt quicker once dropped into your cocktail. Snow is the perfect chilling method.Pack items with multi-use (Emergen-C, coffee, bacon, ciders and teas).Don’t over pack ingredients and think small. You should be able to pack everything in one small baggy. HOW TO PACK YOUR COCKTAILS INGREDIENTS…EFFICIENTLY: When it comes to packing for après, keep it simple. Using fruit rinds, dehydrated fruits from trail mix, or snow can reduce the amount of ingredients you need to haul in. Read more below about how to efficiently pack your booze and ingredients.

Leon Balogun Calls for Collective Fight against Racism

first_imgSuper Eagles defender, Leon Balogun, has said that tackling racism is a collective responsibility and that more ‘extreme punishments’ are needed.The 31-year-old Brighton defender also supports players walking off the pitch, but admitted it is only part of what needs to be done.Balogun wants those not being targeted on the pitch to fully support their team-mates who feel that leaving the pitch is their only option, so that not too much pressure is put on the individuals. “It’s like they are afraid because the manager might say ‘if you don’t want to play, even though you might be an important player to us, we can replace you’ and so that’s something you will think about at least twice,” Balogun told BBC Africa.“That is what a team is supposed to be. We are a family. We are walking off [together], this would empower so many players who are racially abused because that way they then wouldn’t feel alone.”Balogun says in order to get the message across, fans who do not take part in the abuse must also get involved in the battle against racism.“You really take away what they love so much so that they understand we need to rethink here for a minute,” he explained.“So it will also affect people who are not involved in the racial abuse of the players.“People who just happen to be in the stadium and they will be like ‘wait a minute’, those ones, let’s call them idiots are taking away what we love, what we are passionate about.”A recent rise in incidents of racism across Europe has been met with financial penalties and partial stadium closures.He is also adamant that the kind of sanctions being handed down are simply not having the necessary affect.“At the point it’s at right now I think you have to be extreme, even banning a team or like deducting points,” he added.“You need to shock people the same way racism shocks players.“You probably have to go to a place they never expect, where you can actually hurt [punish] those involved in racist behaviour.”The Germany-born player has experienced racism first hand and points to one incident in 2018 when playing for Mainz and he was subjected to monkey chants from Hannover fans.Balogun says authorities also have to make an example of the clubs when their supporters become involved in the racial abuse.“When they are punished, clubs that are affected by the actions of their fans will have to do something about it,” he added.“They will have to find a solution. ‘We are fighting for the championship here or we are fighting for relegation’. We need every point. So they can’t allow or afford to lose points over something which is as stupid as racism.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Leon Balogun last_img read more

MLB Suspends Marlins’ Season Through Weekend Amid Outbreak

first_imgMIAMI (AP) — Major League Baseball suspended the Miami Marlins’ season through Sunday, and the Philadelphia Phillies will remain idled by the coronavirus pandemic until Friday, while the rest of baseball forges ahead with trepidation.“There’s real fear, there’s real anxiety for me, for all my teammates,” Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun said Tuesday. “I think we’ve found it very difficult to focus on baseball at all the last couple of days.”In the wake of a virus outbreak that infected half the Marlins’ team, Braun said MLB players are constantly assessing whether they should keep playing. Infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci said the season could be in jeopardy.But MLB came up with a patchwork schedule for the rest of this week and said that among more than 6,400 tests conducted since Friday, there were no new positives involving on-field personnel from any team other than the Marlins.In a statement, MLB said it wanted to allow the Marlins time to focus on providing care for their players and to plan for a resumption of play early next week. MLB also postponed the three remaining games in this week’s Phillies-New York Yankees series.The Marlins remained stranded in Philadelphia, where they played last weekend. The Phillies-Yankees games were postponed “out of an abundance of caution,” MLB said, although no Phillies players have tested positive.The Marlins received positive test results for four additional players, bringing their total to 15, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The person declined to be identified because the results had not been publicly released.Nine players on the 30-man roster, two taxi squad players and two staff members tested positive earlier.The Marlins had been scheduled to play at Baltimore on Wednesday and Thursday. Instead, the Yankees will play at Baltimore on those days.Miami’s three home games this weekend against Washington were postponed. Nationals players had voted against making the trip, manager Dave Martinez said.“We all decided that it was probably unsafe to go there,” Martinez said. “It had nothing to do with the Miami Marlins. It was all about Miami and the state of Florida, this pandemic. They didn’t feel safe.”The Marlins underwent another round of tests Tuesday, as their outbreak raised anew questions about baseball’s attempts to conduct a season.“This could put it in danger,” Fauci said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “I don’t believe they need to stop, but we just need to follow this and see what happens with other teams on a day-by-day basis.”His comments came before word of the Marlins’ latest test results.“Major League Baseball — the players, the owners, the managers — have put a lot of effort into getting together and putting protocols that we feel would work,” Fauci said. “It’s very unfortunate what happened with the Miami (Marlins).”Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, speaking to reporters in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, expressed reservations about sports such as baseball and football being played during the pandemic, especially in the wake of the Marlins’ wave of infections.“It seems to me that when you have to travel, when you have to be in a hotel room and places that are different than you’ve been the day before, when you are in a position where you’re walking, going into an area where there is a high concentration of spread of COVID, all those things add up to a real problem,” Biden said, “and we’re not going to really overcome that until we follow science and get a vaccine.”In Cleveland, Chicago White Sox manager Rick Renteria returned to the team Tuesday after awakening with some COVID-19 symptoms a day earlier and being isolated for 24 hours.And everyone across baseball seemed to be feeling uneasy.“It’s important that we are able to provide a source of entertainment and an outlet for people who are dealing with such a challenging time in their lives,” Braun said. “But at the same time, the health and safety should be the top priority for all of us at all times. …“You think about all the hotel employees, bus drivers, pilots, flight attendants, anybody else all the Marlins guys might have come into contact with, and it’s obviously scary.”The Marlins planned to remain in Philadelphia until at least Wednesday. The Philadelphia Department of Public Health said it was working with the Marlins and Phillies on contact tracing to contain the spread of the virus.“All of our players, coaches and staff are, understandably, having a difficult time enduring this experience,” Marlins CEO Derek Jeter said.Additional MLB rescheduling during the week of Aug. 3 will be announced later this week. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo offered up his state to any team needing a place to play.While baseball deals with its logistical challenges, the NBA and NHL are resuming their seasons in bubble environments, with basketball at Lake Buena Vista, Florida, and hockey at Edmonton, Alberta, and Toronto.The NFL has opted not to create a bubble environment as training camps open this week.“It might be that they have to go in a bubble,” Fauci said, “but I think they’re conscientious enough and want to protect their players and protect the personnel that they will do the right thing.”last_img read more

Virat Kohli reminisces Rakshabandhan with a throwback picture

first_imgAdvertisement AdvertisementImage Courtesy: Cricket CountryThe life of a cricketer can be rough sometimes with a load of travelling involved in the sport. The time spent away includes missing special moments with the family and while the Indian contingent is away on tour in England on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, Indian skipper Virat Kohli stepped into social media to reminisce the festival with a picture.The 29-year-old posted a picture close to his heart involving his family where a young Virat is seen cutting a cake as his sister Bhwna Dhingra and mother  Saroj Kohli look on. The Indian captain dedicated the picture to all the sisters in the world as he prepares for the fourth test starting on August 30. Here’s the tweet Kohli posted.Throwback to fond memories with @bhawnadhingra2 Didi 😊Wishing a very Happy #Rakhi to all the sisters around the world. #Rakhshabandhan pic.twitter.com/ZaBwuqaDNu— Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) August 26, 2018The Men In Blue are set to take the field in Southampton for the all-important fourth test against the hosts England. While the team collectively contributed to a convincing victory at Trent Bridge, it has been Kohli who has stood out for the Indian side with a complete turnaround of his performance in the 2014 tour.Having already scored 2 hundreds and narrowly missed out on one, the Indian skipper has been nothing short of magnificent and will look to continue his sublime touch in the crunch fixtures ahead to complete the turnaround after being 2-0 down at one stage.While Virat Kohli the batsman has excelled, Kohli the captain has not exactly been pinpoint in the series so far. After facing flak for the inclusion of Kuldeep Yadav in the second test, the Royal Challengers Bangalore captain made amends with his selection in the third tests.The headache continues for the skipper as Ravichandran Ashwin remains a major doubt for the fourth test with Ravindra Jadeja, Umesh Yadav and new call-ups Hanuma Vihari and Prithvi Shaw in the sidelines in contention for a place in the lineup.With the pressure not seeming to wane anytime soon, Kohli will need the blessings of the sisters to keep achieving more than what he has so far in his illustrious career.Read Also:KL Rahul bumps into Chelsea’s N’Golo KanteCricket: Virat Kohli obliges to a young fan’s request in a heartwarming gesturelast_img read more

In 2 yrs 10 persons died due to manual scavenging in Ggn

first_imgGurugram: Death of workers due to manual scavenging does not seem to cease despite various governments announcing that there will be the usage of technology to deal with the challenge.In Gurugram alone, as many as 10 workers lost their lives in the last two years while cleaning sewers. The data collected by the National Commission for Safai Karamcharis (NCSK) shows that at least 50 workers died cleaning sewers in the first six months of 2019. This data, according to the commission, is a gross underestimate and includes figures of only eight states — Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Delhi, Punjab, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Despite officials of MCG insisting that manholes are cleaned with machines, the situation on the ground paints a different picture.last_img
