Press Release, Veterans, Women’s History Month Continuing the Wolf Administration’s effort to support women in the commonwealth and recognize those women who have served their country through the military, the Pennsylvania Commission for Women is seeking statewide nominations for its fifth annual Female Veterans Day Ceremony as part of Women’s History Month in March 2020. The event will take place at the Governor’s Residence in Harrisburg and veterans selected will be honored by Governor Tom Wolf and First Lady Frances Wolf.“Every March, Frances and I have the distinct honor of saying ‘thank you’ to a small representation of the vast population of brave women veterans in Pennsylvania,” Governor Wolf said. “There are currently more than 70,000 Pennsylvania women serving in the military and I know that every single one of them has made profound sacrifices – each deserves much more than this honor, but it is our small way of recognizing women who serve and letting them know how grateful we truly are.”“Over the last four years since the Commission for Women launched this initiative, we have honored over 80 Pennsylvania women who have served their country proudly,” Commission Chair Randi Teplitz said. “The Commission recognizes the unique challenges faced by women in the military, as women only comprise about 20 percent of the armed services. I encourage anyone who knows a deserving woman veteran to nominate her for this honor.”The Female Veterans Day nomination form should be filled out online. Nominees must be current Pennsylvania residents and have served at least four years in any branch of the U.S. military. The deadline for nominations is February 1, 2020. All final honorees will be notified via email by February 28, 2020.For additional information on the nomination process, please contact the Commission for Women at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Cubs are thankful they landed Jonathan Lucroy.Chicago needed a catcher after trading away backup Martin Maldonado at the deadline shortly before Willson Contreras suffered a hamstring injury that is expected to keep him out for about a month. Jon Lester calls himself ‘weakest link’ in Cubs rotation after allowing 11 runs Craig Kimbrel injury update: Cubs put closer on IL with knee inflammation But, despite the elimination of August waiver trades this season, the Cubs managed to add Lucroy — a two-time All-Star — after he was released by the Angels and became a free agent Wednesday.”To get a player of that caliber right now with everything that’s going on for us, the misfortune, we’re pretty fortunate with the new rules,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon told reporters, via MLB.com. “If you just put everything in a box and talk about them all, it’s pretty fortunate.” Related News “We had Maldonado traded away,” Hendricks said. “So yeah, to kind of just fall into that, have a guy available of (Lucroy’s) stature, I think it’s unbelievable. To have him be able to come in, obviously, it’s going to be a pretty easy transition, I think. He’s a guy that’s been around, knows what he’s doing, and he knows some of the guys on this team.”The Cubs finished play Wednesday in first place of the National League Central with a 62-52 record. Lucroy missed about three weeks after he broke his nose and sustained a concussion in early July when he was involved in a collision at home plate with the Astros’ Jake Marisnick. Lucroy is fully healthy now and he’ll split time with fellow Chicago catcher Victor Caratini, Maddon said.”Victor’s done well. This doesn’t put Victor on the shelf,” Maddon said. “They’ll both play. I’ll just try to figure out the best way to do that. I’ve not been around Jonathan a lot. I know he’s had that pretty severe injury this year. But apparently everything is well, but I want to talk to him and see how he’s doing and keep an eye on all of that stuff. It definitely makes us deeper again.”Lucroy, 33, has struggled this season as he’s slashing just .242/.310/.371 with seven home runs and 30 RBIs in 74 games. But, he’ll provide tremendous value for the Cubs behind the plate, pitcher Kyle Hendricks said. Willson Contreras injury update: Cubs catcher (hamstring) expected to miss 4 weeks, report says

Was it the ultimate flight and ultimate ailrine meal? Well if you love the 70s the answer is a resounding yes and probably no matter what era is your favourite, this culinary delight – and flight – ticked every box.The meal served between Honolulu and Nadi on the delivery flight of Qantas’s latest and 75th Boeing 737-800 adorned in a 1970s retro colour scheme was designed by culinary master Neil Perry.Mr Perry took some 70s favourites and gave them the famous Rockpool signature contemporary twist using the best seasonal produce.Mr Perry explains; “These dishes were on the dinner party menu in the 70s and are timeless and delicious. Whilst we stayed true to the original concept, over the decades palates have evolved and quality ingredients have become more easily available so we have introduced some subtle twists to the classics.” Our 70s experience started with a Hawaiian flavour – the famous Mai Tai. Invented in fact at Trader Vic’s restaurant in Oakland, California in 1944, Mai Tai is an adaption of the Tahitian word for “good”.And it was so good that its inventor Victor Bergeron was hired by the Royal Hawaiian hotel to develop the drink adding pineapple juice. And adding to the 70s theme the three flight attendants, Peta, Amy and Jasmine were adorned in the stunning Pucci designed vibrant green uniforms with floral dresses.The Mai Tai’s were quickly followed by Hore d’oeuvres from the 70s. Stuffed tomatoes, devils on horseback, chicken liver pate and stuffed eggs.The big favourite was the devils on horseback – prunes stuffed with mango chutney and wrapped in bacon and served hot.Entrée was a choice between consommé printanier and smoked salmon pillows with pickled cucumber and melba toast. The consommé printanier is a delicious chicken based dish with carrot, turnip, peas, beans and asparagus tips but for me it was the smoked salmon and icy cold champagne, that had replaced the Mai Tias.Main course was a choice of four magnificent dishes. And from next month Qantas will be progressively offering four main courses to all economy passengers on international flights. What is more, the airline is not only doubling the offering but doubling the size of the portions. Qantas is also offering something you could never do in the 70s – online ordering of your preference. But back to the 70s classic mains and they were indeed classic! Mushroom vol au vent, lobster thermidor, duck a l’orange or beef wellington.I couldn’t go past the lobster thermidor which was mouth watering to use a 70s phrase.And the sides? Waldorf salad, peas bonne femme and potatoes dauphinoise. The Waldorf salad brought a smile as I flash backed to the famous John Cleese 1970s classic series Fawlty Towers, where an entire episode was built around the bumbling efforts by Basil Fawlty to create a Waldorf salad for an American couple.Luckily for us Qantas decided not to roll out 1970s white wines such as Moselle and instead served what has become a classic of the current decade – Shaw and Smith SB.We were really on the ultimate nostalgia trip with wonderful memories flooding back.I was taken back to wonderful teenage days when my mother, Una, put on dinner parties that became legendary. And the sweets capped it off.Sherry trifle and chocolate mousse. I couldn’t resist the sherry trifle just to see if it was a good as mum’s. It was.Of course delivery flights are very special and particularly one built around nostalgia for the flying kangaroo and the late James Strong, who the plane is named after.But Qantas is clearly on the rise after a few tough years and one gets the feeling that the retro 737 is a symbol of a new Qantas – revitalised, engaged and committed to the travelling public.Geoffrey Thomas travelled to Seattle as guest of Qantas and Boeing.
