Seniors Tommy McNamara, Thomas House and Nick Boden led the rest of the group down the mountain. The run looked sleek, but nothing seemed out of the ordinary until McNamara and Boden hit moguls — or bumps. House, who was behind them, watched as McNamara and Boden went airborne. “I guess the air kind of caught Nick by surprise and he tried to regain control,” House said. “Then he hit the second kicker and tried to regain control. Then both Nick and Tommy wiped out when they landed.”According to House, McNamara went with the wipeout. Boden tried to adjust and regain control – he went over the edge of the cliff, flailing like a ragdoll. He slammed face first into a tree before plummeting 15 feet into the snow.“I was right behind him yelling down to him, trying to get him to respond,” House said. “I thought he was going to pop up and be like, ‘I’m good.’ Boden is always the one to jump off of railings and land on his back and pop up and be okay.”All he could hear was his friend’s moans.House took off his skis and tried to get down the mountain. “The snow was going all the way up to my knee, and I was running down to him full speed so I kind of fell down the hill to get to him,” he said.A thick layer of snow covered much of his body. House checked Boden’s extremities and his neck, making sure they weren’t broken. As House lifted the neck of Boden’s jacket, Boden briefly regained consciousness. “The first thing I noticed was how badly my leg hurt,” Boden wrote in an email. He added that he couldn’t feel his face. He was also bleeding into his nasal cavities, causing him to pass in and out of consciousness.Ski patrol was called while the rest of the group waited at the edge of the cliff. House held Boden’s head up to keep his airway open until help arrived. Rescuers arrived in about 15 minutes. “Ski Patrol basically said, ‘We need to start taking him out of there,’” House said. So over the next 20 to 30 minutes it took all 10 people in our group and six ski patrol to get him out of the snow, he added.

He also needed a feeding tube because the swelling was so bad he couldn’t even drink through a straw.“One of my doctors told me I was lucky my neck didn’t break, and he was surprised it didn’t,” he wrote. “I could have had serious spinal issues or even brain damage but I don’t.”He also wrote the Aspen hospital estimated he would stay in the hospital for more than a month. He was released after just 10 days. Boden is recovering at home in Atlanta, Georgia. He still needs to use a straw, but wrote that he feels better with each day.“Being home has been absolutely amazing,” he wrote. “It’s a lot less depressing than being in the ICU or in the hospital in general.”Boden is scheduled to get the wires out of his jaw by mid-March. Until then, he’s relaxing, making music and catching up with friends.Senior Nick Boden (right) and friends on vacation.His plans for the future remain the same. “Everything is likely to be delayed, but I don’t think much will change,” he wrote.He still plans to graduate from TCU, then work in Dallas.Boden has accepted his situation. He explained in an email:“Initially, I had a pretty bad outlook on everything. I was mad that this happened to me, that I wasn’t going to graduate on time, that I was missing out on my final semester in college with my friends, that my face was going to look different etc…However, eventually I came to peace with situation because I realized it could have been much worse.”He wrote that the whole thing was a blessing in disguise. He has grown in his relationship with God and now values each day so much more.When asked if he had anything he wanted included, he said:“I want to thank the following people: my friends who saved me, the people who transported me to the hospitals, the incredibly talented doctors who worked on me, the nurses who took care of me, the people who took the time to visit with me in the hospital, the TCU community, my friends back home in Atlanta, all of the people who wrote letters to me, texted me, and messaged me, all of my family and especially my mom who was the best nurse of all. Finally, I would like to thank God because I truly believe he kept me alive and I would not be here without Him.” Kat Matthewshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kat-matthews/ Kat Matthews “My jaw, nose, cheeks, chin and everything were shattered,” Boden wrote.Boden was taken to St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood, Colorado before being flown to Denver where he underwent two surgeries.“The longer surgery lasted over 10 hours and included a lot of plastic surgery on my face, eyes and nose,” he wrote.

Gyatso was imprisoned for seven months after being interrogated and tortured.At the time, RSF launched a petition in support of Wangchen that ended up gathering nearly 14,000 signatures. He was finally released in June 2014 but remained under a form of house arrest.“Many recent cases, including those of Liu Xia and Gui Minhai, have shown that the Chinese authorities can no longer be believed when they say a prisoner of conscience has been released, so departure from China is the only real proof that they have recovered their freedom, although pressure can always be put on family members still in China,” said Cédric Alviani, the head of RSF’s East Asia bureau.China is one of the world’s worst countries in terms of the freedom to inform and is ranked near the bottom of RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index – 176th out of 180 countries.

Reporters Without Borders expressed its concern over the decision in a letter to the president.”In a country where radio broadcasts are the principal news source, and justas peace talks are underway, it is unacceptable that Burundian citizensshould be left without access to certain news stories,” stated RobertMénard, the organisation’s secretary-general. Reporters Without Borders urged the president tolift the ban and see to it that journalists are allowed to work in a freeand safe environment in the country.On 4 March, President Buyoya summoned management representatives from allpublic and private radio stations in the country. He ordered them to ceasementioning or airing statements from two rebel groups, the Democracy DefenceForces (Forces pour la défense de la démocratie, FDD) and NationalLiberation Force (Force nationale de libération, FNL), who have neithersigned nor implemented the cease-fire agreements. The ban comes a few daysafter negotiations between the government and the FDD broke off.The head of state did not specify what the consequences might be should theradio stations ignore his order. One private radio station director told Reporters Without Borders that journalists would be forced to ignore news about certain rebel groupsfrom now on and would be unable to perform their job duties properly.Reporters Without Borders recalls that the Burundian government took a similar decision on 16 May2002. At the time, the defence minister,Major General Cyrille Ndayirukiye, had prohibited media outlets frompublishing or broadcasting interviews with rebels.

But we don’t now what will happen next year. We could all be gone”.Deputy O’Sullivan is to raise a parliamentary question regarding the future for St. John’s Hospital.

This week’s guruAsk me no HR questions’ and I’ll tell you no liesGuru had the pleasure of joining Nicky Campbell on Radio Five Live last weekin an intellectual debate on the rights of single people at work. In the pursuit of media glory, Guru had to argue that the raft of workplacelegislation introduced over the past few years protects married employees whohave children. As everyone knows, this places an unfair burden on the young,free and single. There was just one problem with this line of argument – Guru has sevenchildren at the last count and has been married for what seems like decades. Fortunately, though, the listeners weren’t interested and before Guru gotrumbled, they were phoning in to ask what Guru’s favourite Jack Lemmon film is,and whether PFI would deliver improved public services – subjects that Gurucould at least give an honest answer to. (“Some Like It Hot”, and”possibly”, for those too busy to tune in to Nicky Campbell.) Law will ensure leaner fat catsWhat’s the difference between a shopping trolley and a non-executivedirector? Shopping trolleys have a mind of their own, and you can get more foodand drink into a non-executive director. While this is still the view the media holds of those important bastions ofbusiness, Guru was told in no uncertain way at the Watson Wyatt/CIPD conferenceon directors’ pay, that this is no longer the case. While legislation rapidly approaches which will force companies to justifyhow directors’ remuneration is determined, non-executive directors need notfear media accusations of idleness. They’ll be kept busy as fully paid-upmembers of the remuneration committees. Full house at every meetingMeetings at PPG Industries haven’t been the same since it got gripped bylingo bingo. Guru’s HR pals at the US multinational reckon they have come upwith the definitive list. They defy anyone to get through a meeting without hearing one of thefollowing: “results driven; proactive not reactive; a win-win situation;think outside the box; the full nine yards; core business; put this one to bed,left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing, box it off, the big pictureand finally (more appropriately) let’s kick this one into touch.” deliverchange.
