Rare Video as Couple Flees Oregon Fires

Unfiltered Raw videos set to Amazing Grace capture 1st person accounts from the horror of Oregon's 2020 Fires

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - Sept. 16, 2020 - PRLog -- Renowned American composer, World Maestro Colin O'Donohoe and his new Turkish bride Ceren O'Donohoe had just arrived in Marcola to live and work throughout the fall. They chose Marcola Oregon after a year fraught with tragedy and adventure. They had chosen this area for the natural beauty and peaceful environment.

Three weeks into their peaceful relocation they awoke to a surreal horror. At first they were stunned by the orange sky. Since they've been living in Mongolia, Brazil, and Turkey over the past year, they thought perhaps Oregon has red skies in the fall. Their landlord quickly told them it was not normal and that they should prepare to flee.

Quickly packing up their home studio into their van, the couple fled for the west coast. Ash continued snowing down on them all the way to Florence. They captured video of their escape and beautifully combined it with peaceful video they had taken before the horrendous fires.

The result is a unique glimpse into one personal account of the Oregon fires. The immensely vast size of the fire becomes impossible to comprehend without accounts like this reminding us how important each one of us is in our response to tragedy.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Sep 24, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Sep 24, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

New Sept. 11 exhibit stages the hunt for Osama bin Laden

Sep 24, 2020

NEW YORK — Declassified U.S. government documents and artifacts will be part of a new exhibit about the decade-long search for Osama bin Laden at the site of the New York terrorist attack he masterminded. "Revealed: The Hunt for Bin Laden" opens Nov. 15 at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, a multimedia account of the mission that ended with bin Laden's death in Pakistan in 2011. With direct access to the operatives who led America's feverish post-9/11 hunt for the top terrorist, the exhibit presents a sort of whodunit drama with graphics, videos and the voices of the...

China says US has 'weaponized' visas to target exchanges

Sep 24, 2020

BEIJING — China on Wednesday accused the U.S. of having "weaponized" the issuance of visas following the reported inability of a top Chinese space program official to obtain permission to travel to a key conference in Washington. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters that the head of the Chinese delegation to the International Astronautical Congress wasn't able to obtain a visa following an Oct. 12 interview, making it difficult for Chinese representatives to attend important events at the meeting. Reports said the vice chairman of the China National Space Administration, Wu Yanhua, had planned to attend the congress. Hua...

Cracks were found in a key structural part on 38 Boeing jets

Sep 24, 2020

Inspections of some older Boeing jets have turned up structural cracks in more than three dozen of them, raising a new safety issue for the company already dealing with two deadly crashes involving a newer version of the same plane. Boeing said Thursday that airlines worldwide have inspected 810 planes following an order from U.S. safety regulators. Of those, 38 — or 5% — had "findings" requiring repairs. Airlines are under orders to inspect certain Boeing 737 NG planes for cracking in a part that helps keep wings attached to the fuselage. Boeing declined to identify which airlines found problems,...
