‘Lucky To Be Alive’ Woman’s Near-Death Experience Sparks Change In Folsom

FOLSOM (CBS13) — Doctors are calling a Folsom woman the “1% girl.” In early June, a former high school water polo coach at Bella Vista High School suffered cardiac arrest. She was without oxygen for 10 minutes. Her story is now inspiring an entire community to get CPR training. Lori Durrant works at the D’Artagnan Winery Tasting Room. But on Wednesday the tasting room became a training room, as merchants on Sutter Street get free CPR training. It’s all in honor of Durrant who beat the odds. Doctors say it’s a miracle she’s alive. “It feels good to be back,” Durant said.

Judy Collinsworth with the Folsom Historic District Association says what happened to Durrant outside the tasting room in June shocked the entire community. “Anybody that knows Lori loves her,” said Collinsworth. “She’s such a physically fit person to have this happen to.” “I put my keys in there, and I was just doing that and that was it,” Durant said as…

Bryant’s HR In 8th Gives Cubs Wild 12-11 Win Over Giants

CHICAGO (AP) – Kris Bryant hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning to give the Chicago Cubs a 12-11 comeback victory over the San Francisco Giants in a wild, back-and-forth game Wednesday night at Wrigley Field. Nicholas Castellanos and Kyle Schwarber also connected for Chicago, which has won four straight despite losing leads twice in the last four innings. The Cubs moved back into first place in the NL Central by a half-game over St. Louis, which lost to Milwaukee in a rain-shortened game. Castellanos, who went 4 for 5, has homered in three straight games for the second time in his career – he also did it with Detroit in 2016 – and has nine in 19 games since being acquired in a trade before the July 31 deadline. He is batting .392 (31 for 79) with the Cubs. Evan Longoria, Mike Yastrzemski, Stephen Vogt and Kevin Pillar homered for San Francisco, which has dropped three straight. Castellanos led off the eighth with an infield single to set the stage for Bryant, who stroked a 1-1 pitch from Reyes Moronta (3-7) into…

Is It A Bird Or A Bunny? This Optical Illusion Of An Animal Is Confusing The Internet

(CNN) — It’s a bird! It’s a rabbit! No, it’s definitely a bird. But hey, you be the judge. A video of a black animal getting a nice scratch is spreading quickly around the internet as people take sides in yet another great debate. Daniel Quintana, a scientist at the University of Oslo in Norway, is responsible for all this — he found the video on an image-sharing website on Sunday and tweeted it, saying, “Rabbits love getting stroked on their nose.” You see it, right? Since then, it’s blown up — all because Quintana played on a famous optical illusion wherein a rabbit looks like a bird, and a bird looks like a rabbit. His video alone has been viewed millions of times. But here’s the thing: CNN has in fact verified that not only does the video show a bird, it’s specifically an African White-necked Raven named Mischief. He belongs to the World Bird Sanctuary in Valley Park, Missouri, and is 18 years old. Look — here he is saying, “Hi.” The video Quintana posted was taken, at some point, from Paige Davis, Curator of Bird Training…

Q&A: GM David Forst discusses the state of the Oakland Athletics’ present and future

OAKLAND — September is fast approaching and the Oakland A’s are tied with the Tampa Bay Rays for the second wild card spot. With a rotation patched together with deadline acquisitions and next-man-up standouts outperforming and an offense that delivers night after night despite injuries and prolonged slumps to expensive sluggers, Oakland is looking primed for an exciting postseason push. I spoke with general manager David Forst about how the team came together and a bright 2020 that is hard to ignore despite 2019’s fun. Here’s a breakdown. QUESTION: You’ve taken three-of-four from Houston. You got the first win against the Yankees, you’re about to approach September. How do you feel about the team now? What are the teams strengths and weaknesses as you push toward the postseason? DAVID FORST: This is a team that is a lot like 2018 where, we’re playing about as well as we have all season going into September, which is a great place to be. Obviously taking three out of four from Houston is a really good sign. It not only allows us to pick up a few games…
