Hikers Reassess their Adventure Preparedness As Another Fatality was Reported from Half Dome Cables in Yosemite

Six people die every week in National Parks according to National Park Service

Woodbridge, United States - September 12, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

A park visitor tragically died after slipping and falling to her death while scaling the steepest section of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park, officials said in a statement released on Friday.

29-year-old Danielle Burnett, from Lake Havasu City, Arizona, fell 500 feet at about 11:55 am Thursday into the steep, rocky terrain. She was deceased when park rangers found her. National Park Public Affairs Officer, Scott Gediman, said in a statement that the incident remains under investigation.

Over the years, Half Dome has claimed the lives of 13 individuals, with about 300 accidents reported in the area. Many of these accidents occur near the smooth granite portion of the cliff where Burnett fell., Yosemite recorded three significant incidents, including one fatality, weeks before the accident which claimed Burnett’s life. Park officers said in their statement that "although others may be engaging in the same activity, do not perceive popularity as an endorsement of your safety."

This new incident prompted park officials to strongly advise visitors to take extra precautionary measures and act responsibly during their excursion. When a fatality or other serious incident befalls a national park or other well-known area, adventurers and tourists tend to look to themselves, wondering if they are best prepared for any incident or scenario. Though no amount of gear would have helped Ms. Burnett in her tragic, untimely fall, hikers should take this catastrophe to reassess their adventure preparedness.

China lets currency sink to 11-year low after Trump threats

Sep 20, 2019

BEIJING — China allowed its yuan to sink to an 11-year low Monday after President Donald Trump sent jittery financial markets tumbling by announcing new tariff hikes and threatening to block American companies from doing business with this country. The escalation in the fight over trade and technology prompted warnings that chances for a settlement were disappearing. The yuan declined to 7.1468 to the dollar, a relatively modest change from Friday's low point of 7.0927 but its weakest rate since January 2008. The yuan has lost 6.5% from this year's high on Feb. 28. Chinese leaders have promised to avoid...

China threatens retaliation if US tariff hikes go ahead

Sep 20, 2019

BEIJING — China on Thursday threatened retaliation if Washington steps up their war over trade and technology by going ahead with planned Sept. 1 tariff hikes on additional Chinese imports. Beijing will take unspecified "necessary countermeasures," the Cabinet said in a one-sentence statement. It gave no details or any indication plans for trade talks in Washington in September might be affected. The mounting tension has unnerved financial markets that worry the global economy will tip into recession. President Donald Trump says he plans to impose 10% duties on an additional $300 billion of Chinese imports, extending penalties to almost everything...

China's Xi gets tougher on Trump after new tariff threat

Sep 20, 2019

BEIJING — Facing another U.S. tariff hike, Chinese President Xi Jinping is getting tougher with Washington instead of backing down. Beijing fired what economists called a "warning shot" at Washington by letting its yuan currency weaken in response to President Donald Trump's latest threat of more punitive import duties on Sept. 1. Chinese buyers canceled multibillion-dollar purchases of U.S. soybeans. Regulators are threatening to place American companies on an "unreliable entities" list that might face curbs on their operations. Both sides have incentives to settle a trade war that is battering exporters on either side of the Pacific and threatening...

US says new round of talks with China were 'constructive'

Sep 20, 2019

SHANGHAI — U.S. and Chinese envoys held "constructive" trade talks on Wednesday, the White House said, after President Donald Trump rattled financial markets by accusing Beijing of trying to stall in hopes he will fail to win reelection in 2020. The meeting, aimed at ending a tariff war over trade and technology, ended about 40 minutes ahead of schedule. Neither delegation spoke to reporters before U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin left for the airport. But White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in a statement hours later that "the meetings were constructive," and that talks are...

China imports from US plunge 31% in June amid tariff war

Sep 20, 2019

BEIJING — China's imports from the United States plunged in June amid a tariff war with Washington while exports to the U.S. market weakened. Imports of U.S. goods fell 31.4% from a year earlier to $9.4 billion, while exports to the American market declined 7.8% to $39.3 billion, customs data showed Friday. China's trade surplus with the United States widened by 3% to $29.9 billion. U.S.-Chinese trade has weakened since President Donald Trump started hiked tariffs last year on goods from China in a fight over Beijing's technology ambitions. China retaliated with penalty duties and ordered importers to find non-U.S....
