Obituary: Melvin O’Shea April 9, 1929 – Aug. 10, 2020

first_imgMELVIN CHARLES O’SHEA April 9, 1929 – Aug. 10, 2020Melvin (Mel) O’Shea was welcomed into the gates of Heaven on Monday, August 10, 2020. He was born April 9, 1929 in the family farmhouse in Cascade, Iowa to James P. O’Shea and Veronica Strang. He was their fourth child of five.He is predeceased by his parents, 2 brothers, Lloyd and James, and a sister Aloise, and his beloved wife, Annabelle.Mel grew up on the farm with cattle, horses, pigs, and growing crops. He never liked the cold and bitter winters of Iowa. He served in the Army and found out he liked the Southwest. After leaving the Army, he married his longtime sweetheart, Annabelle Zoller, on October 16, 1954, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Cascade, Iowa. Mel worked for Ford and Nabisco before settling down into his lifelong passion of being a Farmers Insurance Agent. This job decision took him and Annabelle from Iowa to Oklahoma City, OK. There the family grew with the addition of two daughters, Renee in 1962, and Teresa (Tesh) in 1968. In 1972 Mel had the opportunity to start a Farmers Insurance office in a small town, Los Alamos, NM. He loved the mountains so much, so he loaded up Annabelle, 2 kids, a dog and a hamster and set out to start a new adventure.  He loved being a Farmers Insurance Agent, mostly because he loved socializing with his clients, which he considered friends and family.  He loved his job from January 1972 to his retirement in January 2008. His retirement came too early for him as he retired to take care of Annabelle until her death on April 18, 2010, due to Alzheimer’s. Mel was a parishioner at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Los Alamos, NM and a member of the Knights of Columbus.Mel loved being outdoors right up to the very end. Even when his body gave out and he could no longer fish, hunt and ride horses, he still wanted to be out in the mountains he loved. Mel’s love of the outdoors, hunting, fishing and horses has been passed down to the family, and we are all extremely grateful. He had so many wonderful stories to tell of all the great adventures he had doing what he loved – good and bad times – the stories could always bring a smile and a laugh. We will miss his laugh and his sense of humor, but we will continue to carry on his legacy. He was a great mentor to many people and always willing to help. Mel was a lifelong member of the Ducks Unlimited, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and NRA. He also liked to have a good sip of whiskey or brandy, a good cigar and good beer! Any time you see a stream or lake, remember Mel with his fishing pole.Mel leaves behind two daughters – Renee O’Shea-Randolph and husband Blaine Randolph of White Rock, NM; Tesh O’Shea-Payton and husband Donald Payton of Los Lunas, NM; four grandchildren – Corlaine Hughes of Santa Cruz, CA; Tyler Randolph and wife Melissa of Los Alamos, NM; Trae Randolph and fiancé Victoria Young of White Rock, NM; and Gavin O’Shea of Los Lunas, NM; and one great-granddaughter, Ava Randolph and one great-grandson on the way, Gauge, of Los Alamos, NM. He also leaves behind one brother, Robert O’Shea and wife Mary of Sun City, AZ, several nieces and nephews scattered all over the U.S.; his beloved companion, Marge Ziegler of Osprey, FL., and so many hunting and fishing buddies.Due to Covid-19, services will be postponed. To honor Mel, the family would like to request that anyone that is able to please send a story you have to share of your adventures with Mel – be it hunting, fishing, horses, rodeo, dirt bike races or insurance – we would love to hear your stories. Email to melvinoshea@aol.com or mail to 484 Ridgecrest Ave., White Rock, NM 87547.The family of Melvin (Mel) O’Shea has entrusted their loved one to DeVargas Funeral Home & Crematory of the Española Valley. 505-747-7477 – www.devargasfuneral.com.last_img read more

PC renewal deadline extended as SRA struggles

first_imgThe Solicitors Regulation Authority has extended the deadline for practising certificate renewal to the end of February for all solicitors. The first renewals were due to be completed by Monday but delays caused by the new online mySRA system meant many solicitors had not been able to finish the process. Earlier this week it was confirmed more than a third of practitioners had yet to even start the renewal process, with just 14% of renewals completed. In a statement today, the SRA said it was receiving a large volume of calls to its contact centre and urged those with queries to look for information on the website before ringing. The statement added: ‘The renewals process will not close before the end of February to give the profession more time to renew their practising certificates. ‘This applies to all those renewing. It is important, however, that you complete your renewal as soon as you can.’ PCs, registrations for registered European lawyers and registered foreign lawyers, firm recognitions and sole practitioner authorisations will remain valid in the meantime. The PCs will not be sent in the post but will instead be stored in mySRA as a portable document that can be printed. Antony Townsend, chief executive of the SRA, commented: ‘We are aware that some of you, including in the larger firms, have faced technical difficulties which, coupled with a high demand for telephone support, has caused delays to your registration. It makes sense to leave the renewals process open for a while longer. It will not close before the end of February. ‘No one will be penalised for not completing their renewal while the system remains open, but we would ask you to assist us by renewing as soon as possible. We’re very grateful to all those who have already renewed. ‘This is the first year of operation of a new system which will transform the way in which we deliver services to the profession and regulated individuals. The long-term benefits of mySRA are numerous, but I know this has been an unsatisfactory process for some, so I repeat my earlier apology and thank you for persevering with the online system as we refine it.’ Law Society chief executive Des Hudson said: ‘I am sorry that the SRA’s new process hasn’t worked as well as they or we would have liked. It is clear that this year’s PC renewal system – online for the first time – has suffered technical problems which have led to significant frustration and delays for some solicitors and firms. In the last few weeks I and my colleagues have spoken to dozens of members about their experiences with the system. We have relayed these concerns as they have emerged to the SRA and I am pleased that they have acknowledged problems with the system and extended the renewal deadline. ‘In addition, I have written to local law societies, offering support from our regional managers for those firms with the most intractable issues. The SRA’s own relationship management team are also available to help.’last_img read more

US Diplomats’ Mystery Illness Could be Attributed to Pulsed RF/Microwave Radiation

first_imgFrom late 2016 through early 2017, as many as 24 US diplomats in Cuba and several Canadian diplomats complained of hearing loss, nausea, loss of balance, and headaches. Recently at least two more US officials in Guangzhou, China, complained of similar symptoms – ranging from vertigo and sleeplessness to cognitive impairment. Many described hearing loud or disconcerting sounds before the onset of symptoms, or pressure sensations in their ears akin to the baffling that occurs in a moving car with the windows cracked open.According to Beatrice Golomb, MD, PhD, professor of medicine at University of California San Diego School of Medicine – publicly reported symptoms and experiences of a “mystery illness” afflicting American and Canadian diplomats in Cuba and China strongly match known effects of pulsed radio frequency/microwave electromagnetic (RF/MW) radiation.Writing in advance of the September 15 issue of Neural Computation, Professor Golomb’s conclusions may aid in the treatment of the diplomats (and affected family members) and assist U.S. government agencies seeking to determine the precise cause. More broadly, Golomb said her research draws attention to a larger population of people who are affected by similar health problems.Golomb said – She looked at what’s known about pulsed RF/MW in relation to diplomats’ experiences and everything fits. The specifics of the varied sounds that the diplomats reported hearing during the apparent inciting episodes, such as chirping, ringing and buzzing, cohere in detail with known properties of so-called ‘microwave hearing,’ also known as the Frey effect.And the symptoms that emerged fit, including the dominance of sleep problems, headaches and cognitive issues, as well as the distinctive prominence of auditory symptoms. Even objective findings reported on brain imaging fit with what has been reported for persons affected by RF/MW radiation.Beginning in 2016, personnel at the U.S. Embassy in Havana, Cuba (as well as Canadian diplomats and family members) described hearing strange sounds, followed by development of an array of symptoms. The source of the health problems has not been determined. Though some officials and media have described the events as “sonic attacks,” some experts on sound have rejected this explanation. In May of this year, the State Department reported that U.S. government employees in Guangzhou, China had also experienced similar sounds and health problems.Affected diplomats and family members from both locations were medically evacuated to the U.S. for treatment, but despite multiple government investigations, an official explanation of events and subsequent illnesses has not been announced. At least two early published studies examining available data were inconclusive.In her paper, scheduled to be published September 15 in Neural Computation, Golomb compared rates of described symptoms among diplomats with a published 2012 study of symptoms reported by people affected by electromagnetic radiation in Japan. By and large, she said the cited symptoms – headache, cognitive problems, sleep issues, irritability, nervousness or anxiety, dizziness and tinnitus (ringing in the ears) – occurred at strikingly similar rates.Some diplomats reported hearing loss. That symptom was not assessed in both studies so rates could not be compared, but Golomb said it is widely reported in both conditions. She also noted that previous brain imaging research in persons affected by RF/ EMR “showed evidence of traumatic brain injury, paralleling reports in diplomats.”David O. Carpenter, MD, is director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University of Albany, part of the State University of New York. He was not involved in Golomb’s study. He said evidence cited by Golomb illustrates “microwave hearing,” which results “from heating induced in tissue, which causes ‘waves’ in the ear and results in clicks and other sounds.” Reported symptoms, he said, characterize the syndrome of electrohypersensitivity (EHS), in which unusual exposure to radiofrequency radiation can trigger symptoms in vulnerable persons that may be permanent and disabling.Golomb, whose undergraduate degree was in physics, conducts research investigating the relationship of oxidative stress and mitochondrial function – mechanisms shown to be involved with RF/EMR injury – to health, aging, behavior and illness. Her work is wide-ranging, with published studies on Gulf War illness, statins, antibiotic toxicity, ALS, autism and the health effects of chocolate and trans fats, with a secondary interest in research methods, including placebos.Golomb said an analysis of 100 studies examining whether low-level RF produced oxidative injury found that 93 studies concluded that it did. Oxidative injury or stress arises when there is an imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen species (free radicals) and the body’s detoxifying antioxidant defenses. Oxidative stress has been linked to a range of diseases and conditions, from Alzheimer’s disease, autism and depression to cancer and chronic fatigue syndrome, as well as toxic effects linked to certain drugs and chemicals. More to the point, Golomb said, oxidative injury has been linked to the symptoms and conditions reported in diplomats.The health consequences of RF/MW exposure is a matter of on-going debate. Some government agencies, such as the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the National Cancer Institute, publicly assert that low- to mid-frequency, non-ionizing radiation like those from microwaves and RF is generally harmless. They cite studies that have found no conclusive link between exposure and harm.But others, including researchers like Golomb, dispute that conclusion, noting that many of the no-harm studies were funded by vested industries or had other conflicts of interest. She said independent studies over decades have reported biological effects and harms to health from nonionizing radiation, specifically RF/MW radiation, including via oxidative stress and downstream mechanisms, such as inflammation, autoimmune activation and mitochondrial injury.Golomb compared the situation to persons with peanut allergies: Most people do not experience any adverse effect from peanut exposure, but for a vulnerable subgroup, exposure produces negative, even life-threatening, consequences.In her analysis, Golomb concludes that “of hypotheses tendered to date, (RF/MW exposure) alone fits the facts, including the peculiar ones” regarding events in Cuba and China. She said her findings advocate for more robust attention to pulsed RF/MW and associated adverse health effects.last_img read more

Cottonwood Creek Trail Reopened after Bear Mauling

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The trail where a young woman was mauled earlier this week reopened by the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge today. Deputy Refuge Manager Steve Miller said the circumstances surrounding the mauling on Cottonwood Creek Trail are still being investigated. 20-year-old Gabrielle Markel received bites and scratches to her head, arms, and torso during the mauling Tuesday evening. Miller gave tips for people on any trails of the Kenai Peninsula. Miller: “Two people went out there yesterday, they did not find anything and we sent out a larger crew today as well to get a bit farther back away from the trail. We did go ahead and open Cottonwood Creek Trail today for the public to use, we still have some warning signs up there notifying the public that a bear has been spotted in the area and a mauling did occur.” The refuge ruled that attack defensive based on the injuries sustained. Miller: “People just need to be bear aware, 12 months out of the year bears can occur anytime, especially this time, especially around salmon streams, so make sure you are bear aware and make sure you are making noise while out hiking or doing any other recreation activity and be safe.” last_img read more
