‘Narco-deforestation’: cocaine trade destroying swaths of Central America Drug trade s efforts to launder profits by creating agricultural land results in loss of millions of acres https://www.theguardian.com/environm…entral-america
Hey all, I have been working for the last 20 months as an emt (tech) in the UK and I am currently completing a foundation degree in paramedical science with a view to being HCPC registered around December. I was hoping that someone may be able to give me some advice as to what courses I will need to complete next in order to become a suitable candidate as a rig medic. I have read around MIST, NEBOSH, The offshore medic course HSE Approved, and the helicopter safety training.
Are these all requirements? I have also seen on some forums that Paramedics are not as attractive as nurses to employers? If this is true what can I do to make myself a more desirable candidate? I am a qualified firefighter with 8 years frontline experience, not sure if that would make me more eligible? I really would appreciate any help or words of advice.

Golf star Rory McIlroy was expected to marry his sweetheart Erica Stoll in an Irish castle on Saturday. Security was tight as helicopters and blacked out cars brought guests to the ceremony at Ashford Castle in Co Mayo, Republic of Ireland. A steady stream of locals who wandered up to the gates were kept at bay by guards. The four-time major winner’s representatives said his wedding was private and anti-drone experts were even brought in alongside boat-based security teams to patrol the waters of Lough Corrib.

Celebrations include a fireworks display and musical entertainment from Stevie Wonder, who created a buzz in the city of Galway when he popped into a few shops on Friday, according to reports. The guest list is said to include One Direction singer Niall Horan, recent US Masters winner Sergio Garcia and Ryder Cup players Martin Kaymer and Paul McGinley, racehorse owner JP McManus and possibly singer Ed Sheeran.
McIlroy, 27, is from Holywood in Co Down in Northern Ireland and met New Yorker Ms Stoll, 29, when she worked for the US PGA and was living in Florida.
The 350-acre Ashford Castle estate can be rented for around 84,000 a day at this time of year and has already been in use by the wedding team for several days.
