Unable to pull the mother out, he comforted the boy while they waited for help. The woman died a short time later. “He stayed with him, told him that everything was going to be all right,” Estrada said. As temperatures dropped, he gave him a jacket, built a bonfire and stayed with him until about 8 a.m. Friday, when hunters passed by and called authorities, Estrada said. The boy was flown to University Medical Center in Tucson as a precaution but appeared unhurt. “We suspect that they communicated somehow, but we don’t know if he knows Spanish or if the gentleman knew English,” Estrada said of the boy. PHOENIX – A 9-year-old boy looking for help after his mother crashed their van in the southern Arizona desert was rescued by a man entering the U.S. illegally, who stayed with him until help arrived the next day, an official said. The 45-year-old woman, who eventually died while awaiting help, had been driving on a U.S. Forest Service road in a remote area just north of the Mexican border when she lost control of her van on a curve on Thanksgiving, Santa Cruz County Sheriff Tony Estrada said. The van vaulted into a canyon and landed 300 feet from the road, he said. The woman, from Rimrock, north of Phoenix, survived the impact but was pinned inside, Estrada said. “For a 9-year-old it has to be completely traumatic, being out there alone with his mother dead,” Estrada said. “Fortunately for the kid, (Cordova) was there. That was his angel.” Cordova was taken into custody by Border Patrol agents, who were the first to respond to the call for help. He had been trying to walk into the U.S. when he came across the boy. The boy and his mother were in the area camping, Estrada said. The woman’s husband, the boy’s father, had died only two months ago. The names of the woman and her son were not being released until relatives were notified. Cordova likely saved the boy, Estrada said, and his actions should remind people not to quickly characterize illegal immigrants as criminals. “They do get demonized for a lot of reasons, and they do a lot of good. Obviously this is one example of what an individual can do,” he said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Share This!A giraffe watching us closely during our private SafariHave you ever had an extra magical experience at Disney? Maybe a Cast Member or even another guest found a way to throw some pixie dust your way? From the smallest gestures, like a departing guest passing on their still inflated balloon to a new guest, to the biggest surprises, say winning a night in Cinderella Castle, Disney is perpetually full of fairy-tale moments. My husband and I were lucky enough to experience that very thing when we were chosen as ‘First Family’ at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.I knew there was a First Family at Magic Kingdom. When chosen, those lucky ducks are invited to open the park from the train station platform as part of the Magic Kingdom Welcome Show. Families arrive to the entrance gates super early every morning in matching outfits for a shot at joining the characters up on stage. As someone without kids of my own, being that First Family never really interested me personally. I’d rather see a family with little kids enjoy it instead. Plus, the thought of being up on stage in front of that many people is terrifying to me. Visions of baby Simba hoisted above all the animals at Pride Rock in Disney’s Lion King would haunt my dreams. So, without realizing other parks participated in the practice of selecting a First Family too, I gave up on any notion of being one.It was with that lack of knowledge and with minimal expectations that we woke up bright and early one morning to rope drop Animal Kingdom. We successfully arrived before the gates opened which gave us a distinct advantage. Once they started letting people through the gates past The Oasis in Animal Kingdom and into Discovery Island, we were at the very front of the hoard of people who would head towards Kilimanjaro Safaris when the park opened. As luck would have it, we were also right in front of the tower where all the macaw birds land during the official opening announcement as well. While watching all the beautiful birds flying overhead to perch in front of us, I kept thinking this can’t get any better.Zebras as seen on Kilimanjaro SafarisThen we started our walk back towards Kilimanjaro Safaris, and at this point, I was practically itching with excitement for the first attraction of the day. When we reached the bridge to Africa, a Cast Member in safari gear approached us and started a casual conversation with us. She commented that she liked my Lion King shirt, congratulated us on our anniversary, asked us if we were having a good day so far, questioned how many were in our group, etc. This is when I probably should have caught on, but most Cast Members are so friendly that I thought nothing of it.As we approached the entrance for the line, she said, “Okay, everyone’s going to go that way, and you’re going to follow me down the FASTPASS Line”. I obviously wasn’t going to argue with that, so off we went! Barely containing my excitement, I looked up at my husband and tried to signal that something special might happen. I still wasn’t sure what was transpiring and didn’t want to embarrass myself by announcing an incorrect assumption out loud in front of the lovely Cast Member. I’m pretty sure I just looked at my husband and mouthed ‘Something’s happening”. And he probably looked at me with a ‘Well, duh’ expression.Thankfully, the Cast Member didn’t keep us waiting long. She finally told us we were selected as First Family, and as such, we would get a private Kilimanjaro Safaris tour to open the park for the day. At that declaration, I’m pretty sure I squealed out of excitement to the point that the animals were probably ready to accept me as their own (or hunt me down as their next meal). Either way, we were off on our own with a driver and two Cast Members.The lioness and tail of the male lionThe male lion perched on his rockThe tour was similar to the regular Kilimanjaro Safaris expedition for the most part. However, the smallest changes made all the difference in the world. The tour guide Cast Member was able to turn sideways in her bench and talk to us face to face since she wasn’t driving. I think because of that and because we were the only two on the tour, it was much more interactive. We were encouraged to ask tons of questions and learned more about backstage things that they don’t talk about on the regular safari. True to Disney theming, the normal version of the attraction is intended to emulate a real safari experience where you see animals in their natural habitat. During our private tour, however, our guide was able to break through that barrier a little bit regarding the animals and their upkeep. It was incredibly interesting and a very unique experience.Gorillas posing for the cameraBefore we knew it, we were back at the unloading zone. We said our goodbyes (and plenty of thank you’s) before heading off to our next adventure –Pangani Forest Exploration Trail, now known as Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail. Our luck continued there too! The first Cast Member we spoke to near the gorilla habitat told us that the gorillas were on their way out and would be crossing in front of us shortly. Thanks to being First Family, we were in and out of Kilimanjaro Safaris so quickly that we got to witness some extra magic there too. Even the baby gorillas were out to play.Since returning from the trip, I’ve heard that some Animal Kingdom First Families get pictures, certificates, and even extra FastPasses. Though that was not the case for us, I still had an amazing time. I know from now on, I’ll be trying a little harder to get to Animal Kingdom and Kilimanjaro Safaris bright and early in the hopes of experiencing it all again. If it sounds like fun to you too, my tips are to arrive early, wear your celebration buttons, and dress accordingly. While I’m not sure that my Lion King shirt guaranteed us the honor, I’ll bet it didn’t hurt. And as always, stay positive. Even if you’re not selected, you’re still in for a wonderful safari experience.Have any of you had the privilege to be First Family at any of the parks? I’d love to hear about it, your attempts, or your thoughts on the whole idea of First Family in the comments below!
Share This!One of the news pieces that popped up all over Twitter over the holiday weekend was that select Walt Disney World Resort Restaurants are now going to be available for Guests to book via the popular reservation site, OpenTable. It seems that several Disney Springs and Walt Disney Swan & Dolphin dining establishments had been on the site for a while, but actual Walt Disney World owned and operated restaurants are now popping up for Guests to be able to make reservations. Options for Walt Disney World restaurants that are now included on OpenTable are:Flying Fish at Disney’s BoardWalkBoatright’s at Disney’s Port Orleans RiversideSanaa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom LodgeOlivia’s Cafe at Disney’s Old Key WestArtist Point at Disney’s Wilderness LodgeGrand Floridian Cafe at Disney’s Grand Floridian ResortThe Wave at Disney’s Contemporary ResortKona at Disney’s Polynesian Village ResortIn order to book a reservation via OpenTable, you will need to create an account so that you can receive details regarding your reservation.One of the biggest differences between using the Walt Disney World Advance Dining Reservations system vs using OpenTable is that with OpenTable, you won’t need to put down a credit card on file to make a reservation. Do keep in mind that you don’t want to abuse OpenTable’s system because you could be blocked from using in the future if you abuse it too much.Currently, reservations are only available through the end of February for these Disney specific restaurants, however, if you are wanting to dine at one of these restaurants and they are unavailable via the MyDisneyExperience app, this is a great place to look. I suspect if this option works well for these restaurants, you will see additional dates open up.
24 March 2003The South African government has given the East London Development Zone Corporation a license to operate on the West bank of the Buffalo River, in the Buffalo City metropole. There are a number of other IDZ’s in South Africa, including IDZs at Coega (outside Port Elizabeth), Richards Bay, and Johannesburg International Airport. So far only the ELIDZ and Coega have received government permits to operate an IDZ.The idea behind the IDZ is to encourage export investment by providing a duty free customs secure area and associated industrial park, manned by full time customs officials, next to good quality transport infrastructure (port and airport), allowing duty free imports and VAT-free purchases of SA goods, and combine with major investment incentives.The ELIDZ comprises 1,500 hectares of prime land located next to the port, the N2, and next to the airport. 20 hectares is already serviced and 2 manufacturers are already committed to development.The next phase of the development will provide a further 300 hectares, including a 250 hectare duty free area for exporters. The customs secure area will open for business in mid 2004, paid for by R100m ($12.5m) in local government funding for the next financial year.The SA and Eastern Cape governments are committed to providing funding for major infrastructure improvements, including the creation of the office park, the building of an access road, the upgrading and complete electrification of the EL – Gauteng railway line and an extension of the port at East London. East London is the only river port in SA and already has the most sophisticated car terminal in the country. The idea is to position East London as a major automotive hub port.Funding for these infrastructure upgrades has all been agreed in principle by the South African government and will be announced in detail at the end of April 2003.Taking into consideration the long lead times for new investment projects, the East London IDZ is beginning its marketing process now with a view to moving the first major businesses into the IDZ in mid 2004.Source: EL Industrial Development Zone
The Trump administration’s immigration policies have sparked public debate and protest. The figure of 10,000 comes from a tally of 50 institutions. Some 27 institutes requested that their data not be published, AAU says, either because of low numbers that could identify individuals or for other reasons. Several universities have made similar arguments in suits against the Trump executive order and cited data from their campuses. AAU has broadened the picture by surveying its 60 U.S. members. (Its two Canadian members—McGill University in Montreal and the University of Toronto—were not included.) Top U.S. universities host 10,000 students and researchers from nations covered by Trump travel ban By Jeffrey MervisFeb. 17, 2017 , 12:00 PM @iamsdawson/Flickr (CC BY-NC 2.0) Sixty top U.S. research universities have roughly 10,000 students and researchers on campus from the seven countries covered in the travel ban announced last month by President Donald Trump.The new data are included in an amicus brief filed yesterday by the Association of American Universities (AAU) in a suit pending before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York (Darweesh v.Trump). Several tables included in the brief detail the number of students, faculty members, postdocs, and other researchers from the seven Muslim-majority nations at 23 universities that are members of AAU (see graph, below). Last week a federal appellate court in San Francisco, California, blocked implementation of the 27 January executive order, which the Trump administration says it will reissue next week in a way that it hopes will pass legal muster.The AAU brief argues that one big reason U.S. higher education is the envy of the world is its “ability to attract the very best students and faculty from the United States and other countries.” That ability, in turn, “depends on ensuring predictable travel to and from the United States.” Any obstacle to the free flow of people and ideas, the brief asserts, could jeopardize U.S. global leadership in higher education and research.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)
