Resolve to give blood in January for National Blood Donor Month

Resolve to give blood in January for National Blood Donor Month

NORFOLK, VA Dec. 18, 2014 — The American Red Cross asks eligible blood donors to make a resolution to give blood regularly in 2015, beginning with National Blood Donor Month in January. National Blood Donor Month recognizes the importance of giving blood and platelets while honoring those who roll up a sleeve to help patients in need. It has been observed during January since 1970, and that’s no coincidence. Winter is an especially difficult time to collect enough blood to meet patient needs. Unpredictable winter weather can result in blood drive cancelations, and seasonal illnesses, like the flu, may cause some donors to be unable to make or keep blood donation appointments.   Donors of all blood types are needed, […]

Kevin Keatts Carries UNCW Seahawks To Face No. 4 Louisville

WILMINGTON, NC Dec. 13, 2014  – The sparkling red, black and white decor of the palatial KFC Yum! Center will be very familiar to Kevin Keatts, but UNCW’s new men’s basketball skipper will be watching and coaching Sunday’s game from not-so-accustomed vantage point as he carries his Seahawks to the Bluegrass State to face No. 4 Louisville. The Seahawks, 3-2, just concluded first semester exams and haven’t played since walloping St. Andrews, 105-47, in a record-setting performance 11 days ago at Trask Coliseum.

Carolina Panthers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Hello sports fans. I would like to begin by welcoming everyone to my articles. Today I would like to input my opinion on the Carolina Panthers and their chances not only this weekend but in the rest of the season. On Sunday they will be playing the Bucs with a 1 pm kickoff. As has been well documented, Cam Newton was in an unfortunate car accident earlier this week and will be sidelined with two process fractures in his back. That opens up an opportunity for Derek Anderson to have the starting position. Anderson played well back in week one leading the Panthers to a victory over the Bucs 24-17. That was Week 1. This is Week 15. Both teams […]
