It’s a situation that many people have found themselves in at one point or another, so even though you may feel alone in the moment you certainly aren’t.  While you might not be able to make the problem go away immediately, you can control your response to it.1.

Deer-Vehicle Accidents More Likely In The Fall

first_imgA deer in the headlights is one hazard of driving through Southeastern Indiana.October and November have historically been the worst months for deer-vehicle collisions and the amount of accidents have been on the rise in recent years.In fact, animal-vehicle collisions have gone up dramatically by almost 69 percent since the 1990’s.The rise in deer-vehicle accidents in the fall can be directly linked to multiple factors including the mating season of deer, farmers in the field and more cars on the road, according to District 9 Conservation Officer Bill Beville.“All of those factors are probably the reason why accidents have risen over recent years,” Officer Beville said.“Annually we do see an increase in car-deer collisions in the fall, mainly because of the harvest and mating season.”Hunting season and improved technology that allows farming operations to continue around the clock are also contributing factors.Deer are most active during dawn and dusk. According to Beville, “Drivers should be especially cautious during the two hours window before and after sunrise and sunset.”It is important to always scan the roadway, use high beams, and if a collision is imminent, stay calm and don’t swerve.“Drivers need to be alert and watch for animals entering the roadway. Just by keeping your eyes up and not being distracted by other things, you can greatly decrease the possibility of a deer-car collision.”last_img read more

DEBATE: Is Mats Hummels decision to leave Dortmund for Man United sensible?

first_imgGermany defender Mats Hummels seems increasingly likely to join Manchester United as rumours continue to swirl regarding the 26-year-old’s future at Borussia Dortmund.Hummels, a World Cup winner with the Mannschaft in Brazil last summer, has repeatedly said that he is happy in Dortmund and has no desire to move – despite Juergen Klopp’s men being in the midst of one of their worst domestic seasons for years.But with a number of big clubs including United desperate to shore up their defences this summer, Hummels has become one of the most sought-after players in world football.And reports on Tuesday suggest that the 2013 Champions League finalists would be prepared to let him go for £36 million – a price that Louis van Gaal is apparently happy to pay.The Daily Mail also claims that Hummels himself has now changed his mind about staying put: “After years of staying loyal to Borussia Dortmund and resisting overtures from United, the Germany centre-back has decided he’s ready to cut his ties with the fallen Bundesliga giants and move on,” the paper reports.”Repeated approaches for Hummels always met with stubborn resistance from Dortmund, but they have been forced to back down after their cultured defender indicated he was unhappy with their fall from grace this season… “Hummels feels he has remained loyal long enough and is hoping United’s negotiators can come up with a package that will smooth the way for his long-awaited arrival at Old Trafford.”–last_img read more
