artran/iStock(HONOLULU) — After a dramatic rescue in Hawaii’s high surf, ocean safety officials on the island have doubled down on the importance of adhering to posted warnings.A married couple from Oklahoma on vacation in Oahu allegedly ignored warnings for a photo opp and got swept out to sea by one of the biggest swells of the year.Witnesses told ABC News that the couple fell into the ocean after they went down a cliff, past warning signs to a remote area in hopes of taking photos. While witness Chevz Rafael took video, his wife, who did not want to be named, called 911.The raucous waves separated the couple, and Rafael captured footage of the woman drifting away as waves began to crash overhead.Lt. Kawika Eckart, who oversees the lifeguards that conducted the couple’s rescue Sunday, told ABC News the team in Hanauma Bay was prepared for anything.“We had a jet ski operator in the ocean already due to the high surf; they responded from around the coast and met up with the [other] two lifeguards,” Eckart said. “We put them on our jet ski and brought them into Hanauma Bay.”Shayne Enright, the PIO officer for Honolulu Emergency Services Department, told ABC News she reached out to the couple, who has not been identified, and confirmed they are in stable condition.Eckart, who has been a lifeguard for 30 years, said this is not the first time onlookers have risked their safety for a picture in unsafe conditions on a cliff coastline with no lifeguard on duty.“People tend to want to take that picture and end up getting swept out into the ocean. For us to respond, it takes time. You’re not at a guarded beach,” he explained. “By that time there could be trouble.”The lifeguards, who arrived within nine minutes, credited the bystanders for keeping an eye on the couple and immediately calling for help.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Unique in his quality and atmosphere of Croatian seaside, International Handball Goalkeepers Camp in city of Omis provoken a lot of attention and confirmed status of prestigious event for handball goalkeepers between two seasons.The number of 150 young goalies, from U13 to senior, from USA to Algeria, who spent fantastic seven days in Camp, describe experience in the best possible way.Young goalies had a chance to work twice a day with some of the older colleagues who can only watch on TV during VELUX EHF Champions League Final4 in Cologne, where Roland Mikler (Telekom Veszprem) and Borko Ristovski (FC Barcelona Lassa) were fighting for an European title.The Camp’s guest was also Vive Tauron Kielce goalie FIlip Ivic, while other demonstrators were Croatian goalies who are also playing abroad, Sandro Uvodic (Bregenz Handball), Mario Percin and Dino Spiranec (Germany) supported by Croatian NT goalie Ivana Kapitanovic (RK Podravka Vegeta).The list of coaches was also impressive. The “handball father” of Roland Mikler, Telekom Veszprem goalkeeper’s youth coach Haris Porobic was there, but also EX-CL winner with RK Zagreb, Vladimir Vujovic, legendary Yugoslav goalie from 80’s Mirko Basic, EX-ZRK Buducnost and Montenegrian NT goalkeeper’s coach Vlatko Djonovic, Fikret Handan from Swedish Savehof HK Fikret Handan, Polish coach Tomasz Blaskiewicz, while inovative approach to training process brought Vanja Radic, goalkeepers coach from Finland, with reach experience of working at Camps in dozen countries.Something new in terms of psychical preparation, young goalies could see in work with Marina Skrobot, fitness coach from Pula.FANTASTIC CONDITIONS IN OMISInovative approach in a work with goalies was established through partnership with Sports Science Innovations company. Camp participants could work with Witty lights, but also Neurotrackers and 3D glasses, with the clear goal – improvement in reaction. We did our best to raise level of Camp in comparation with previous years. Camp is worldwide known for our target group, but we tried to put whole event a step up with moving to Omis. We had two brand-new halls only 100 meters from the Camp where participants were based, two minutes from the beach. That made training process and complete experience of players, coaches and parents much more colorful – said Camp director Mario Čaljkusic.Omis becoming a real home of handball. Masters Handball World Cup took place in Omis earlier this year, but organizers already book the same place for second edition between May 10-13, 2018. Goalkeepers Camp will take place in the June 2018 on the same place. Omis and handball – successful story.

Joshua Jackson in Children of a Lesser God The Waverly Gallery Content Producer Lindsey Sullivan”Michael Urie had big shoes to fill stepping into the role Harvey Fierstein nabbed Tonys for penning and portraying in 1983, and he has risen to the occasion. Breaking hearts and landing laughs as Arnold Beckoff, this is wonderful performance that I won’t soon forget.” The year is almost at a close. In addition to an endless amount of holiday parties and last-minute gift shopping, we’ve also spent our time at the end of 2018 reading up on best-of-the year lists. The only thing more fun than reading them: making them, of course! We’ve asked fans to choose your favorite Broadway show of 2018, and the Broadway.com editorial staff had a heated (in the best way) debate to determine the best performances, debuts and shows of 2018. Of course, not everything we loved this year could fit into those slots. As a result, we’ve each shouted out a show or performer that we think deserves a little extra love. Check them out below! Michael Urie in Torch Song Alexander Gemignani in Carousel Photo Director Caitlin McNaney”I was so impressed with Bryan Cranston’s performance in Network, and director Ivo van Hove has such a phenomenal way of storytelling. I loved his production of View from the Bridge, and this makes me all the more excited to see what he will do with West Side Story next season.” Editor-in-Chief Paul Wontorek”Though it doesn’t really fit the format of our best performances list, I want to give props to the 14 stage stars (10 onstage puppeteers, three offstage puppeteers and one crew member) who bring King Kong to life. Their combined muscle and talent have given real emotion to the big guy in ways I never dreamed possible.” Site Producer Joanne Villani”Stephanie J. Block’s performance as Star in The Cher Show blew me away! On top of taking on Cher’s classic costumes and style, she also channels Cher’s unique voice and one-of-a-kind mannerisms. She truly brought heart and tenderness to Cher’s biggest moments.” Editorial Assistant Eric King”I’d like to shout out Alexander Gemignani’s singing, specifically in ‘Mister Snow,’ specifically during the line, ‘I aim to make Miss Pipperidge change her name to Mrs. Enoch Snow.’ He belts an A on ‘Mrs.’—there aren’t even any vowels in that word! What a gorgeous, jaw-dropping tenor!” The King Kong Puppet Crew News Editor Andy Lefkowitz”Kenneth Lonergan’s gently devastating The Waverly Gallery played just 70 performances off-Broadway in 2000, remaining a powerful memory to those lucky enough to see it. In its Broadway premiere, Lila Neugebauer’s fresh look at a grandmother’s struggle with dementia told through the eyes of her grandson moved me deeply—and the onstage pairing of Lucas Hedges and the legendary Elaine May couldn’t have been a better match.” View All (5) Nicolette Robinson Taylor Louderman in Mean Girls Stephanie J. Block in The Cher Show National Editor Ryan Lee Gilbert”I could use this space to praise this musical’s delightful performances, great choreography and nimble direction, but instead I’ll just say that Head Over Heels was the fabulous and whimsical celebration of queer love that I’ve wanted on Broadway for a very long time.” View Comments (Composite by Ryan Casey) Network Star Files To Kill a Mockingbird Alexander Gemignani Social Media Manager Caitlyn Gallip”I first saw Nicolette in Invisible Thread and fell in love with her spirit and voice. She brings such grace to every role she takes on, and Jenna was no exception. Nicolette was the first mom to play the role, and her performance changed the way I think about this musical.” Michael Urie Stephanie J. Block Head Over Heels Video Director/Editor Mark Hayes”I absolutely loved Mike Birbiglia’s one-man show, The New One. His take on parenting, specifically fatherhood, is one of the most raw and honest that I’ve ever heard. It’s also hilarious and surprisingly sweet. By the time it was over, I couldn’t wait to get home and give my own daughter a hug.” Managing Editor Beth Stevens”The great American novel reimagined for our time with precision and care by Aaron Sorkin, To Kill a Mockingbird is a riveting courtroom drama as well as a hard look at core values like tolerance and justice. The cast is crowded with masterful actors, led by Jeff Daniels, who turns in a nuanced performance as one of the greatest literary characters of all time, Atticus Finch.” The New One Taylor Louderman Illustrator & Animator Ryan Casey”When I saw Taylor Louderman slither onto the stage during ‘Meet the Plastics,’ my heart skipped a beat. Her vocals, cunning stare and perfect blonde locks gave me everything I needed for a wonderful night at the theater. You girls keep me young, I love you so much!” Nicolette Robinson in Waitress Content Producer Caitlin Moynihan”Not only did Children of a Lesser God mark Josh Jackson’s Broadway debut, but he learned a completely new language to take it on. Sign language is complex and beautiful, and he truly threw himself into the role. Watching him and Laura Ridloff together on stage was magic.”
