The Red Deer Senior Rustlers drop second and third straight games in Eckville and Morinville

After a six-game winning streak to open their inaugural North Central Hockey League season, the Red Deer Senior Rustlers have procured a three-game losing streak after a pair of losses over the weekend to two of the league’s top teams in the Eckville Eagles and the Morinville Kings.

In their first game in two weeks following their first bye weekend of the season, the Rustlers dropped a 3-0 decision to the Eckville Eagles on Friday night, the second straight game they were held scoreless.

With a shortened roster on Saturday night, the Rustlers rebounded with a spirited effort in Morinville, but, after leading 2-1 for much of the game, were handed a 4-3 loss after a late game-winner by the Kings.

“Obviously we were hoping for a better result this weekend, but as a new team, our focus is still process over outcome,” said Assistant Captain Kyle Pess. “You can’t win a championship in November. We let some important points slip away this weekend, but we’re determined to learn from our mistakes and grow as a team.”

After a bit of a flat effort on Friday night, Pess said other than the final score, there was a lot to like about the Rustlers’ game on Saturday.

“We came out with a lot of energy and played well with a shortened bench against a very good team in Morinville,” he said. “I think if we can harness that effort and bring it every night, we’ll get back on track in no time.”

The Senior Rustlers are off again this coming weekend, but will have their shot at redemption against the Kings on December 8 in Penhold, the team’s first home game since November 3.

They’ll close out the 2018 portion of the season with another home game against the Eagles on December 15, and a road game in Sylvan Lake December 21 against the Pirates.

Understanding My Own Grief was Life changing for Me

Understanding My Own Grief was Life changing for Me

A personal story:

“…I connected with the PCN program through my doctor’s recommendation. I have always been a thirsty learner of better ways to navigate through life. The Coaches of the program Journeying through Grief showed up every day with their humanness and wisdom.

I appreciated their loyalty to improve our wellness through learning to manage our grief. They were willing to be vulnerable in a way I have never seen in any kind of therapy or counselling. Their own histories with grief nurtured my trust and receptivity to the information.

They shared their personal experiences in dealing with life’s challenges. For me, I would describe my experience as emotional debridement. I am thankful for the contribution and support of everyone in the class. Several of us had mastered supporting others but needed to learn how to do this for ourselves.

Connection with empathy as in this group is nothing less than GOLDEN in creation of a better life of wellness in arguably a better world. Reflectively I now feel that my own grief was due initially to the loss of my dreams too quickly as important people did not believe in me. Not learning how to handle this made subsequent losses more difficult to manage.

I learned that dealing with grief is a journey and to never give up. If things get tough, have faith that things will get better soon…”

Germany reaches to younger audience with viral Covid-19 public service campaign

Published on

Sometimes in the tsunami of news coming from south of the border, we forget there are other countries fighting wars, having elections, and trying to win the battle against a pandemic that is wreaking havoc with their people and their economies.

Germany has been a leader in this since the start and after a summer of relatively low infection rates, is now facing a far bigger second wave. They’ve been leaders in testing and tracing initiatives and while its caseload climbed in the early stages, the number of deaths remained lower than many countries hardest it. Now the country is seeing its second wave and it’s much more dramatic with nearly four times as many infections.

A series of public service announcements have been produced to help convince the population to stay at home, and they’re funny.

The humorous campaign focuses on the idea of “Coronavirus Heroes”.  It’s shot in a documentary style and features older people reflecting on how they fought the pandemic when they were young. The three clips are featured below and they all contain English sub-titles.  Enjoy!
