The department’s goal is to help people understand what officers are trained in and how they respond to certain situations.

“We wanted to kind of demystify what we do, and hope that people will better understand and see that we’re people like them. We’ve just been given a job to do, and we want to do this to the best of our ability. our capabilities for the community,” Bowling Green Police Chief Tony Hetrick said.

“A few years ago, with the George Floyd incident, the city council thought it would be a good idea for the police to do more community engagement,” Hetrick said.

Lt. Ryan Tackett wants people to walk away with a greater sense of transparency from the department and an appreciation for what police officers are up against.

“I think they will better understand what law enforcement does, why we respond to calls the way we do, what our expectations are on a call, and how people react to what we do.”

Bowling Green therapist who recovered from anorexia says eating disorders are often hidden https://gatongchenghui.com/bowling-green-therapist-who-recovered-from-anorexia-says-eating-disorders-are-often-hidden/ Mon, 09 May 2022 20:06:00 +0000 https://gatongchenghui.com/bowling-green-therapist-who-recovered-from-anorexia-says-eating-disorders-are-often-hidden/

A newly formed support group in Owensboro called Aubrey’s Song is raising awareness about eating disorders and developing local resources for treatment.

The band is in memory of Aubrey Michelle Clark, who began battling an eating disorder in college and lost her life to complications from the disease in 2005 at the age of 22.

One of Aubrey’s Song’s board members is Hillary Bacon, a therapist who works in crisis mental health services at LifeSkills in Bowling Green. Bacon, 28, knows firsthand the insidious way an eating disorder develops.

“It was more and more exercise with less and less fuel, until I was finally in the gym for a few hours a day with very little to no food.”

Hillary Bacon

Bacon decided to eat healthier and develop an exercise routine, so she took a women’s weightlifting class as a student at Western Kentucky University. She drastically restricted her food intake, as well as extended hours in the gym, and the combination caused her to lose weight rapidly.

She realized her perceptions were warped and she finally called her parents.

Bacon developed anorexia during his sophomore year of college. She spent several working with a therapist, physical therapist and dietitian and balancing her diet and perspective.

She says she has now recovered from anorexia and has achieved the balance and normal life she has been working towards for years.

After becoming a licensed clinical social worker, Bacon pursued doctoral studies in clinical social work.

Note: Aubrey’s Song meets the fourth Thursday of the month from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at the Logsdon Center in Owensboro. The group is for friends and families of people with eating disorders. For more information, call 270-852-6514.

Yuzvendra Chahal surpasses bowling idol Shane Warne to pull off massive feat for RR https://gatongchenghui.com/yuzvendra-chahal-surpasses-bowling-idol-shane-warne-to-pull-off-massive-feat-for-rr/ Sun, 08 May 2022 03:30:00 +0000 https://gatongchenghui.com/yuzvendra-chahal-surpasses-bowling-idol-shane-warne-to-pull-off-massive-feat-for-rr/

Yuzvendra Chahal of the Rajasthan Royals has had a fantastic run in the Indian Premier League so far, atop the list of top wicket takers. On Saturday, Chahal won another three-wicket hit of the season, finishing with a bowling figure of 3/28 from 4 overs against the Punjab Kings. Before entering the game, Chahal had a record 19 wickets but with a three-iron he has now eclipsed legendary spinner Shane Warne and Shreyas Gopal to become Rajasthan Royals’ highest wicket taker among spinners in a season.

Shane Warne topped the list of top spin bowling wicket takers for Rajasthan in a season thanks to his tally of 19 wickets, which he recorded in the inaugural edition of the IPL. However, Warne’s record was broken by Shreyas Gopal in the 2019 edition of the cash-rich league when the latter picked 20 wickets in 14 matches. Yuzvendra Chahal has now passed Warne and Gopal to become the Royals’ leading single-season spinner. Chahal currently has 22 wickets in 11 matches, including a hat-trick, which he picked against Kolkata Knight Riders on April 18.

Chahal is currently tied with former Pakistani pacer Sohail Tanvir in the list of highest wicket takers for Rajasthan in a season (overall). Tanvir had chosen 22 wickets in 11 matches in the 2008 edition of the IPL. Chahal is expected to surpass Tanvir in the next game. Meanwhile, James Faulkner holds the record for most wickets for Rajasthan in a season. He picked 28 wickets for the franchise in 2013. It will be interesting to see if Chahal can surpass Faulkner to become the most wicked bowler for RR in a season.

RR vs. PBKS

As for the late night game, Rajasthan beat Punjab by 6 wickets to further cement their place in the points table. Running in second, Rajasthan went on a whopping 189 runs in 19.4 overs. Yashasvi Jaiswal has shattered an incredible half century to help his team pursue the target. Jos Buttler, Shimron Hetmyer, Devdutt Padikkal and Sanju Samson all contributed a few runs with their bats. Jaiswal was named player of the match for his outstanding stroke with the bat.

The giant bowling pins on top of Japanese buildings often serve a second, hidden purpose https://gatongchenghui.com/the-giant-bowling-pins-on-top-of-japanese-buildings-often-serve-a-second-hidden-purpose/ Wed, 04 May 2022 15:03:05 +0000 https://gatongchenghui.com/the-giant-bowling-pins-on-top-of-japanese-buildings-often-serve-a-second-hidden-purpose/

Your eye ain’t the only thing they’re supposed to catch.

bowling alleys are incredibly easy to find in Japan. That’s not to say they’re everywhere, but if there’s one in your vicinity, you’ll often be able to spot it right away, because chances are it has a giant bowling pin on top.

This exterior style is particularly common in Round 1. Branches of the entertainment center chain usually also have arcades, karaoke boxes, and pool and darts areas, but it’s a bowling pin that sits on the roof by about 70% of the 99 Round 1 locations in Japan. Obviously, the pin works as an advertisement, but it’s not just meant to catch the eye. Turns out a lot of these pins are there for catch lightning also.

According to Japanese building codes, a building over 20 meters (65.6 feet) high must have a lightning rod at its peak. 20 meters would correspond to the sixth floor of an apartment building, and with the higher interior ceilings of a commercial building like Round 1, it is quite easy to exceed 20 meters, especially if there are also other tenants in the building. So for Round 1 pitches that are over 20 meters high and have a bowling pin on their roof, the tip of the pin has a lightning rod protruding from it.

The protrusion isn’t always noticeable at ground level, but Round 1’s brand management department recently confirmed the lightning rod functionality of its roof pins. There is a bit of a chicken and egg here though. Normally, if a building is less than 20 meters high, there is no lightning rod. However, even if the main structure itself is below this limit, if there are antennas, advertisements, or other things attached to the building that extend more than 20 meters above the ground, then the lightning rod requirement comes into play. It is therefore possible that in addition to the branches of round 1 which already needed a lightning rod and therefore integrated it into the roof pin, there may also be branches on which it is the pin itself which places them beyond 20 meters. Anyway, these pins are not only advertisements, but often also security features.

Twitch streamer ExtraEmily panics after a perfect game of Switch Sports Bowling https://gatongchenghui.com/twitch-streamer-extraemily-panics-after-a-perfect-game-of-switch-sports-bowling/ Mon, 02 May 2022 16:43:12 +0000 https://gatongchenghui.com/twitch-streamer-extraemily-panics-after-a-perfect-game-of-switch-sports-bowling/

Rising Twitch streamer Emily “ExtraEmily” Zhang found a brilliant strategy in Switch Sports Bowling that allowed her to pitch a perfect game in Nintendo’s latest release.

ExtraEmily has had a pretty impressive few weeks. In April, she was named the winner of Mizkif’s Twitch show “Schooled,” taking home a whopping $50,000 prize. Now, the first week of May, she hit a 300 in Switch Sports.

Much like Wii Sports before it, Switch Sports gives gamers the convenience of “bowling” in their living room without the need to rent bad shoes or lift heavy balls.

Already we’ve seen Switch Sports make an impact on the gaming scene and ExtraEmily has been no exception, wanting to play a perfect game and dedicate a whole stream to it.

ExtraEmily plays the perfect game in Switch Sports Bowling

On May 1, Emily began her quest for the perfect game, but was nowhere closer to achieving her goal than when she started, around three and a half hours.

Luckily, after checking her vods and doing some research, she seemed to develop a winning strategy of lining up the ball the right way before bowling to seemingly guarantee a strike.

After a few tries, the streamer was confident in her technique and unleashed blow after blow, leaving no pin safe before finding herself one hit.

“The cat was there,” she said before throwing her last ball. “Oh my God! Let’s go!”

With the last pins knocked out and the perfect game achieved, Emily stood up and jumped for joy, shouting “perfect game” over and over dancing in victory.

It remains to be seen if Emily can put her Switch skills to bowling and try a 300 in a real bowling alley, but if her determination with the Nintendo game is any indication, she could very well make it a reality.

PDRA Drag Racing comes to Bowling Green https://gatongchenghui.com/pdra-drag-racing-comes-to-bowling-green/ Fri, 29 Apr 2022 00:27:00 +0000 https://gatongchenghui.com/pdra-drag-racing-comes-to-bowling-green/

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) — Rev up your engines and get ready for drag racing this weekend at Beech Bend Raceway Park.

“We came to Bowling Green thinking it would be a good place for our second event of the year here for the PDRA Series,” says Tyler Crossnoe, Series Manager at the Professional Drag Racers Association.

An event that usually highlights drag racing but also attracts an influx of visitors.

“So the Beech Bend Drag Race is always busy this time of year and it kicks off our car show season,” says Bowling Green Area’s Nora Bryant. Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.

“These events put us on a map with people who would never even really think about Bowling Green, their interest is drag racing, but then they come here and find that we are so much more than the event they come to, we have the restaurants, we have the attractions,” adds Byrant.

“We will see thousands of visitors this season entering and staying at our hotels, spending money at our local businesses and dining at our local restaurants. It’s just really great for Bowling Green and Warren County,” Bryant also said.

Those with PDRA like to come to Bowling Green.

“Coming to Bowling Green is very special for us. I grew up a few hours from here. It’s kind of like home, I raced here for many years, and I was able, to be able to come back and bring our form of drag racing to this facility. It’s very special, and we’re going to put on a hell of a show this weekend,” adds Crossnoe.

The Bowling Green Area Convention and Visitors Bureau says people come for one reason, but stay for another.

“You hear it all the time. Oh my god we’re coming back next year, oh my god I want to move here or they’re looking for a move for their business. And so these events really help promote Bowling Green,” says Bryant.

Drag racing fans can expect quite a show this weekend.

“We only see pro mods, we have two modded pro classes Extreme Pro Stock 632, Top Sporty Top Dragster is just a lot of bad fast door cars. They looked like a ’69 Camaro and a ’67 Mustang like you’d get back home, but they sure don’t ride like the ones that drive down the street. So you’ll see guys running three seconds, 200 miles an hour all weekend. Our show is only, I think, about eight or nine years old. Thus, being able to bring new era drag racing into an older model facility. It’s really cool, added Crossnoe.

Beech Bend Raceway Park is located at 798 Beech Bend Park Rd.
