first_imgThurstonTalk aims to be your source for positive information and events happening in Olympia.  If you have a suggestion for a story, send us a note at [email protected]  For more events and to learn what’s happening in Olympia and the surrounding area, click here. Undeniably, the top posts this week centered around ways to stay cool during record high temperatures.  It’s not often that Thurston County residents brace hot weather and need a reprieve.  Luckily, ThurstonTalk came to the rescue and published information about ways to chill out.  Now that the thermometer has returned to a manageable 70 degrees, it’s hard to think about heat exhaustion and cooling stations.  But, to prepare for “next time” (which incidentally may not be until next August), here is a summary of our posts related to combating the heat.Heat Hot!  Ideas To Stay Cool In Thurston CountyDr. Diana Yu, the Health Officer for Thurston County, quickly rallied her resources and pulled together some great tips for staying cool.  ThurstonTalk also published a list of cooling stations to help residents find a safe place to wait out the heat wave.  And, many parents relied on our post summarizing the  downtown Olympia fountain hours before heading out.Thrifty Thurston Visits The New East Bay Public PlazaThis article has been soaring our charts for ten days.  Not only is the East Bay Public Plaza a fabulous addition to downtown Olympia but the running stream was a welcome sight for hot feet earlier this week.  Many kids (of all ages!) waded in the stream throughout the week, cooling off in a beautiful public park setting.  Flip through our photo set to see more East Bay action.Kayak Opportunities Galore and Paddleboarding – The Perfect Summer Activity On The WaterReaders also turned to our summaries of kayaking and paddleboarding.  (Sneaking out of the office early to enjoy bright sunshine?)  Regardless of your athleticism, these two activities can be enjoyed right here, in Olympia waters.  Whether you are renting a kayak at West Bay or launching a paddleboard in Boston Harbor, an increasing number of Olympia area residents are finding pleasure in these outdoor activities.And, no weekend summary would be complete without a shout-out to the beloved Pet Parade.  Completing its 83rd year touring downtown Olympia, the popular event was visited by hundreds of two- and four-legged friends.  Scan the photos shot by our ThurstonTalk photographer by clicking here.  If you missed this year’s parade, mark your calendar for August 17, 2013 (third Saturday of the month) when pets will, once again, parole the downtown Olympia shopping core.

Powered by Firework It has been four years since the Indian cricket fandom saw the entry of Jasprit Bumrah into the international squad. The young Gujarati pacer quikcly turned heads and made headlines with his astounding performances, and has been hailed as one of the greatest bowlers in the world at present. However, the only thing that the former ICC World No. 1 ODI bowler narrowly missed to clinch was the esteemed Arjuna Award, an honour he came very close to grasp last year. However, this year, Bumrah has been nominated by BCCI to be the front runner of the category of cricketers in the award ceremony for this year!Advertisement Image Courtesy: PTI/123RFDespite his marvellous consistency with the ball, Bumrah couldn’t emerge as the winner of Arjuna Awards in the past two years.In 2018, the pacer had only completed two years with Team India, a year less than the minimum criteria of three years of cricket at international level. In 2019, Bumrah came close to be the winner, but again it was the men in Blue stalwart Ravindra Jadeja regarding seniority.Advertisement However this year, with BCCI about to give out their list of Arjuna Award nominees by the end of this month, its high likely that the Gujarat fast bowler will come out on top.“He (Bumrah) certainly has the best credentials. He was ICC’s No 1 ranked ODI bowler. He is the only Asian bowler to pick up five-wicket hauls in South Africa, England, Australia and West Indies,” a source from BCCI was quoted by PTI.Advertisement Since his international debut against Australia in January 2016, Bumrah has made 12 Test, 58 ODI and 45 T20I appearances for India, and has picked up 62, 104 and 59 wickets in the three formats respectively. With 719 ratings, he is currently ranked no. 2 in ICC’s ODI bowler rankings, 8 points behind New Zealand star Trent Boult in the top spot.Indian Women cricket team icon Smriti Mandhana was the Arjuna Award winner in 2018, and her teammate and legendary bowler Poonam Yadav was the joint winner with Jadeja last year.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-Costly can: IPL 2020 cancellation could cost BCCI Rs. 40 billion!Here are the Bundesliga games you can look forward to after football resumes on May 16!
