Easter Sunday for Christians from Louisiana, to the Ile de la Cite (ILL-day-lah-SEE-tay), the island where Notre Dame Cathedral sits surrounded by the Seine (SANE) River, took refuge, amidst the ashes, in the Hope of Resurrection. “What does the Lord want to tell us through this ordeal?” asked Archbishop Michel Aupetit of Paris, referring to the Two Churches being burned down, “Here we move from the scandal of death, to the mystery of resurrection. Our hope will never disappoint us, because it is based not on buildings of stone, which we will rebuild, but on the Risen One who remains forever.”

Within the next two years, Duke Energy expects to boost by a fifth its supply of solar power in North Carolina and South Carolina. A total of 14 new projects will add roughly 600 megawatts of solar power to 3,000 that the Charlotte-based utility currently deploys across the two states. Duke Energy officials estimate that over their first 20 years in operation the new solar projects should save power customers roughly $375 million.

Gretna, Virginia EMT’s rushed to help a 59-year-old man with a racing heart at work. The squad had a 20-minute drive ahead, to the emergency room, during which the patient’s heart rate got as high as 200 beats per minute. During the 7-mile ride to Lakeside Hospital, however, something happened that isn’t covered in the treatment plan — Potholes. Apparently, the jolt of the pothole “converted the patient’s” racing heart to “normal” rhythms. “Classically, you’ll see it on television,” a staff cardiologist said, “The paddles — ‘clear’ — and a big jolt. Turns out you can do that with a pothole.” https://myfox8.com/2019/04/20/man-with-racing-heart-possibly-saved-when-ambulance-hits-pothole-on-drive-to-hospital/
