BREAKING NEWS BRIEF
A 129-foot lift vessel capsized off the coast of Louisiana early this morning, officials said, sending 19 passengers overboard. The U.S. Coast Guard received an emergency beacon notification at 4:30 a.m. and were able to bring six people to safety. The search remains, however, for the 13 other passengers.
According to a meteorologist, a wake low moved through that area, meaning the crew encountered winds of speeds between 70 and 80 miles per hour. This system spun out of a thunderstorm that had pushed through the southernmost part of the state.
So far an ocean sentry plane, four private vessels, Coast Guard ships, and a helicopter have been deployed in the search for the missing 13 passengers. What else should you know about this?

The famed Ever Given cargo ship is stuck in the Suez Canal again, but it’s not what you think.
Though the Ever Given cargo ship was finally freed from the Suez Canal recently, the ship is officially grounded again thanks to Egyptian authorities. Egypt officials have seized the cargo ship and are demanding a whopping $1 billion before they will let it leave, due to the amount of money it took to free the ship after it ran aground last month and blocked the canal entirely. Until the money is paid, the ship will remain anchored with the crew on board.
While the crew is still on the ship and under strict orders not to leave, Egyptian authorities stress that they are in no danger and are not being held imprisoned. The owner of the Ever Given is trying to get insurance to cover the bill, while it has been rumored that companies with containers on the ship may also have to pay up in order to access their cargo and help free the ship again.

It’s no secret that when parents are involved with their children, kids do much better in all phases. However, there’s another level to this, and that is engagement. The sharp difference is: involvement means parents are aware and supportive of what their kids are doing. At the same time, engagement is a collaborative relationship between parents and family members to improve child development in all categories.
Child development experts say family engagement benefits not only your kids but parents, teachers, and other family members as well.
