Med Wars

By on December 30, 2020

first_img 1 2 3 4 You’re standing in the swamp, rescuing a man that has been bitten in the leg by an alligator. All of a sudden—WHAM! The alligator is attacking you, too.“The lesson here is pay attention to your surroundings and think before you act,” says Michael Caudell, an emergency room physician and director of the MedWAR Challenge. MedWAR is a bizarre adventure race in East Georgia that blends trekking, canoeing, and mountain biking with wilderness medicine. Over the last decade, the adventure race has grown from Caudell’s pet project into a cult phenomenon amongst doctors and med students, drawn to the race for the chance to test their medical chops in the wild.Beyond the sheer joy of spending a day running, paddling, and biking in the woods, the MedWAR Challenge is designed to underscore a single fundamental truth: most of us are clueless when it comes to handling emergency situations in the woods. Surprisingly, that rule applies to most doctors too.Fort Gordon is a U.S. Army base just west of Augusta, Ga., with 56,000 acres of undeveloped wildlands used for training soldiers. The terrain is a brutal combination of sand, dirt canyons, swamp, and creeks—the signature terrain of MedWAR Southeast. Half the teams that start the challenge don’t finish the full course, and the competitors that do cross the finish line usually come out cussing Caudell’s name.“I’m into all that bored-white-guy high adventure stuff,” says Luke Smith, a second year medical student at the Georgia College of Medicine and two-time MedWAR racer. “MedWAR is exhausting. I’m already training for next year.”It’s not so much the sand that slows racers down, or the canyons, or the heat, which can be brutal in this corner of Georgia. It’s the swamp. Trekking through waist-deep muck for miles can kill even the fastest runner’s momentum.“When you first enter the swamp, you try to daintily jump from log to log. But that takes too long, so eventually, you have to jump in and slog through waist deep mud,” Smith says. “It’s awesome. It’s like you’re in Predator, or one of those other Arnold movies I grew up watching.”And right in the middle of this swamp leg of MedWAR, you and your team of four have to figure out how to stop an alligator attack victim from bleeding to death while not getting bitten yourself. Caudell has six medical scenarios scattered throughout the 15-mile course, along with half a dozen checkpoints with multiple choice questions stapled to a tree. The questions are taken straight out of a wilderness medicine handbook, but they tend to be really obscure. There might be pictures of five plants presented, for example, and you have to choose which one is poisonous. Finding the checkpoint with the questions alone will get you a five-minute time bonus. Answer the question right and you get an additional five-minute time bonus. last_img read more

Two killed in Burundi as forceful search for weapons continues

By on September 27, 2020

first_imgAt least two people have been killed in Burundi in the ongoing forceful disarmament exercise by security forces, and a police officer was also wounded in gun battles in the capital, Bujumbura.The clashes came on the second day of a huge security operation launched after a government weapons amnesty ended on Saturday night.Hundreds of police officers and soldiers have reportedly entered opposition strongholds in search for weapons.The operation has raised alarm in the international community over fears that it would unleash further clashes in the country that is still recovering from a 13-year civil war that ended in 2006.Gunmen reportedly attacked a bar late on Saturday and killed nine people, just hours before the amnesty ended. Bujumbura was however reported to be largely calm overnight on Sunday.Many residents living in parts of Bujumbura that are considered opposition strongholds have fled the capital, nearly living the districts empty.The UN Security Council is due to meet on Monday to discuss the deteriorating situation.But Burundi’s government has dismissed concerns over its deadline to hand in illegal weapons, saying it wanted only to crush “terrorism”.last_img read more

Andy Ruiz’s a pretender — Joshua’s manager

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Anthony Joshua, Okolie plot world title double Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight Eddie Hearn thinks Andy Ruiz Jr has managed to trick fans into thinking he has lost weight by posting carefully positioned pictures on Instagram.  The IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion has surprised his followers with recent pictures in which he looks far trimmer than he did on the night when he handed Anthony Joshua his first defeat.However, Hearn believes it is nothing more than an optical illusion.Joshua’s promoter told iFL TV: “I thought he looked quite tubby.“I actually thought he looked heavier than he did previously.“Make your own mind up. That clip that I saw, which was him training in San Diego, I didn’t think that he looked slimmer than he did last camp.“There was one picture of him leaning forward.“The old ‘lean forward’, tucked back, with a little pout, can make you lose half a stone. Maybe he’s done that.”Ruiz shocked the world earlier this year when he stopped Joshua to become the first Mexican heavyweight champion.The rematch will take place on December 7 in Saudi Arabia and Ruiz has previously stated: “I think being 10lbs lighter, I’m going to be a better fighter.” Tags: Andy RuizAnthony Joshualast_img read more
