Letterkenny residents told works for huge mast was Irish Water works

first_imgResidents in the Glencar area of Letterkenny were misled about works on a telecoms mast by claims that the works were for Irish Water, it has been claimed.The issue was raised at today’s meeting of Letterkenny Municipal Council by local county councillor Gerry McMonagle.The Sinn Fein councillor, who lives in the locality, said locals were left irate because no discussions had taken place before the mast was erected. Because of this, misinformation went out as to the reasons for erecting the mast.Initially rumours went around that this was to be used as a 5G mast while another claim was that the mast was to boost telephone coverage.Cllr McMonagle added that up to one thousand school children pass by the mast each day.He said a consultation process with local residents could have saved a lot of trouble brought about by misinformation. The motion was second by Cllr Jimmy Kavanagh who said the lack of consultation over the mast had left a bad feeling in the mouths of locals.“It is hard to even talk to the local residents about it now because they have a certain view on it and it’s hard for them to get beyond that,” he said.Director of Services with Donegal County Council, Liam Ward, said the council can bring the issue of non-consultation to the attention of the department to allow for a facility for members of the public to air their concerns before a decision is made on masts.Mayor of Letterkenny, Cllr John O’Donnell said he had met with the company behind the mast and had been assured it was not for a 5G signal. Letterkenny residents told works for huge mast was Irish Water works was last modified: November 14th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalglencarletterkennymasttelecomworkslast_img read more

Proteas into ICC World Twenty20 semis

first_img30 March 2014 The Proteas booked a semi-final place with a three-run victory over England in the ICC World Twenty20 in Chittagong, Bangladesh on Saturday. The win took South Africa to the top of the Group 1 standings, with three wins from their four round-robin matches. Victory was actually a little more comfortable than the final margin would suggest as England were left requiring 20 runs off the last three balls of their innings, and all Dale Steyn made sure of doing was not bowling a no ball or a wide. Tim Bresnan took advantage of that by smashing a six, a four, and a six off those deliveries. Put in to bat in very humid conditions, the Proteas responded well, despite a couple of breaks for faulty floodlights.Serious momentum Hashim Amla again provided serious momentum at the top of the order, smashing 56 off only 37 deliveries before he was the first man out in the 11th over, caught by Alex Hales off Chris Broad for 56. Fellow opener Quinton de Kock followed eight runs later for a less fluent 29 from 33 balls. JP Duminy missed out, making only five, while next man in David Miller contributed 19 off 15 deliveries and Albie Morkel three off of three. However, that did not matter as AB de Villiers, captaining the team in the absence of the suspended Faf du Plessis, played an inspirational, gem of an innings, cracking an unbeaten 69 off only 28 balls, with nine fours and three sixes.Fireworks De Villiers’ fireworks began in the 16th over, which he began with 25 runs off 15 balls to his name. At the end of the over, bowled by Stuart Broad, he stood on 36 off 19. After the next over, bowled by Johannesburg-born Jade Dernbach, he had reached 50 off 23. He then added a further 19 runs in the remaining two overs to help the Proteas to 196 for 5, the highest total of the tournament by any team. Hales, the scorer of a big century in England’s win over Sri Lanka in their previous match, struck two fours in the first over of the English innings, bowled by JP Duminy, but was then caught at point off the bowling of Albie Morkel in the following over. The umpire called no ball, however, and Hales stayed on. Incorrect call Replays showed the umpire had been incorrect in his call, but Hales was unfazed, immediately hitting the next two deliveries to the boundary. Wayne Parnell broke the opening stand in his first over when he had Michael Lumb caught by Miller for 18, with the England total on 46 in the fifth over. Brought back into the attack in the eighth over, Parnell again did the trick, with Miller catching Hales for 38 off 22 balls, and Moeen Ali being caught behind by De Kock the very next ball for 10. The left-arm paceman went on to finish with 3 for 31 in his four overs.Standout The other standout performance with the ball came from leg-spinner Imran Tahir, who removed Eoin Morgan for 14 and Jos Buttler for a hard-hitting 34 off 24 deliveries. The slippery ball forced Tahir to bowl a little quicker than he usually would, but he nonetheless finished with 2 for 27 in his four overs. Ravi Bopara showed some fight with 31 off 18 balls lower down the England batting order, but when Steyn had him caught in the deep off the first ball of the final over, the writing was on the wall for England. When Bresnan managed only a single off of the second ball and Broad another single off of the third, the result was decided. In the end, England tallied 193 for 7.‘It was a great game’ Proteas’ skipper AB de Villiers was an obvious choice for man of the match. “It was a great game. The boys did extremely well,” he said at the post-match ceremony. “They were very tough conditions to field in. I knew from the start we had to be unpredictable and mix things up, but once again the execution of the bowlers was amazing. “I’ve lost a few as captain in T20s and it was important for me to get the guys through and get Faf back [and] pumped for the semi-finals,” he added.‘Heartbroken “It was a fantastic game. Credit to the players for that,” England captain Stuart Broad said. “We’re heartbroken to come out on the wrong end, but AB has taken the game away for us. “It didn’t go to plan in the last three overs, but apart from that it was a good game for us. We’ve had some guys get going this innings, but no outstanding score, which you need chasing such a big total.”last_img read more

How to Use High-Key Lighting Without Looking Like a TV Movie

first_imgHigh-key lighting is for more than just reality TV. Let’s take a look at a few cinematic examples and examine a couple ways to get the shadow-free look.What is High-Key Lighting?High-key lighting (unlike low-key lighting) is a lighting technique in which shadows are minimized. High-key lighting has its roots in the era of classic cinema, when a set would simply be doused with light in the same manner in which a theatre stage is lit. In modern days, you will typically see high-key lighting more in sitcoms and comedies than dramatic action thrillers.There’s no defined point at which low-key lighting becomes high-key lighting, it’s more of a general rule of thumb. For example, if you’re shooting outside in the shade, you’re probably going to have a more even distribution between light and dark areas on your subject. It would be safe to say that this would be considered high-key lighting. However, different lighting directors might have different opinions about what’s high-key and what isn’t.In short, high-key lighting is a cinematic effort to reduce shadows in your scene. In general, high-key lighting gives audiences the perception of lightheartedness and a lack of drama.Notable High-Key Lighting ExamplesNone of this is meant to suggest that high-key lighting doesn’t have a place in modern professional cinema. There are plenty of great examples of effective high-key lighting in modern films. Just take a look at a few of the following examples:AvengersIn this example from the first (and better) Avengers movie, we can see high-key lighting in action. In fact, it’s interesting to see how the lighting in the scene changes as the conflict escalates. At first everyone is evenly lit except for Nick Fury, but as the scene progresses we begin to see a shift to a more low-key light setup.Inglourious BasterdsThis is another great example of a complex lighting scenario that uses high-key lighting to create something deeper. In this scene from Inglourious Basterds, we see Hans Landa subtly interrogating Perrier LaPadite. But instead of the “bad” guy (Landa) being put into shadow, Quentin Tarantino decides to evenly light Landa’s face when we cut to the close-up. This is probably to emphasize the fact that Landa is a terrifying person with nothing to hide, unlike the guy sitting across the table.Moonrise KingdomWes Anderson is probably the most famous habitual user of high-key lighting in modern cinema. In this example from Moonrise Kingdom, we see both subjects evenly lit despite the fact that the scene takes place outside. 3 Simple Ways to Create High-Key LightingDepending on your situation, high-key lighting can be either incredibly easy to produce or incredibly difficult. Let’s take a look at how to get a high-key look using some simple lighting setups.1. Bounce Light Off the CeilingIf the ceiling in your location isn’t incredibly high, you could try simply bouncing a bright light off of the ceiling. This will essentially create a large soft-box above your subject. This technique can work well, but (just like when shooting outside) you’ll want to watch for dark circles in your subject’s eye sockets.2. Use Multiple Lights to Fill in the GapsAnother way to create a high-key lighting look is to simply find the shadows and fill them in with light. This tutorial by Denis Rule shows us how to create such an effect in a studio.As you watch the video, you’ll probably notice that Denis uses quite a few lights to get the high-key look. Depending on how evenly lit you want your scene to look, it can take a lot of lights to even out the shadows. The video was made for photographers, but the basic concepts remain the same for continuous lighting scenarios.3. Outdoor ReflectorIf you’re shooting outside, it’s advised to use an outdoor reflector to soften your shadows. This is normally done by simply holding the soft white side of your reflector under your subject so that light can softly bounce from below and fill your subject’s eyes.Want to learn more about lighting for film?

Forest Whitaker Narrates Sewing Hope Film

first_imgSister Rosemary Nyirumbe, a Ugandan educator and CNN Hero, will attend the Chicago debut of “Sewing Hope,” a film that documents her work restoring the lives of women and girls brutalized by Joseph Kony’s rebel army.She will visit DePaul University Feb. 16-20 and will attend the screening and discussion Feb. 19 from 5 to 8:30 p.m. in the lower level theater at 14 E. Jackson Blvd. The event is free and open to the public. RSVP here.“Sewing Hope” follows Nyirumbe as she leads a vocational school in Gulu, Uganda, where she teaches practical skills to restore independence to women and girls who were kidnapped and sexually assaulted by Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army. Filmmaker Derek Watson mixes first person accounts and edgy animation as actor Forest Whitaker narrates Nyirumbe’s fight to bring hope back to her troubled nation. Sister Rosemary’s story is also chronicled in a novel that is available on Amazon by Reggie Whitten and Nancy Henderson titled Sewing Hope.DePaul’s School for New Learning recognized Nyirumbe with an honorary doctorate in December 2013 in partnership with Tangaza College in Nairobi, Kenya. Founded in 1898 in Chicago, DePaul is the largest Catholic university in the United States. Tangaza College is also a Catholic institution and prepares graduates for ministerial and social work.“Sister Rosemary is a living example for DePaul and Tangaza College as we work together to develop leaders for Africa,” said Derise Tolliver Atta, associate professor in DePaul’s School for New Learning. “She stood up to Kony’s army and works unabashedly for social justice, and that resonates with DePaul students in Chicago and Africa.”Traveling the world to advocate on behalf of her school that was developed in partnership with Pros For Africa, — St. Monica’s Girls Tailoring Center — Nyirumbe also brings attention to the ongoing violence caused by rebel groups in Uganda. In 2007, she was named a CNN Hero. U.S. President Bill Clinton and his daughter, Chelsea, praised her mission and determination earlier this year during a visit to Uganda.Under Nyirumbe’s leadership, St. Monica’s has adapted to the practical and trauma-induced needs of a population suffering in a civil war. Women and girls at the school receive psychological support and literacy training, as well as vocational skills like sewing and planting crops. Nyirumbe developed a program to help students earn money by creating purses from soda pop tabs. Since 2002, annual enrollment at St. Monica’s has surged to more than 300 from 31, and most leave the school with permanent jobs.The School for New Learning at DePaul University provides a distinctive approach to learning for adults, with customized programs that build upon abilities and experiences, add knowledge and develop skills to help achieve personal and professional goals. This event is presented by the Africa Diaspora Committee at DePaul during Black History Month. More information is online at www.snl.depaul.edu.last_img read more

Auditor General takes aim at access to health care for remote First

first_imgThe Canadian Press OTTAWA _ Canada’s auditor general is taking issue with the quality of health care in remote First Nations communities, lacklustre efforts to rehabilitate prisoners and the dearth of oversight governing boutique tax credits _ the Conservative government’s election bauble of choice.Many of the findings in Michael Ferguson’s spring report to Parliament touch on some key planks of the government’s likely election platform _ protecting Canadians and cutting their taxes _ while exposing more shortcomings in how the country’s Aboriginal population is treated.Ferguson says despite their big-ticket status, tax-based expenditures _ boutique tax credit measures such as the children’s fitness tax credit, for example _ are not properly evaluated or subject to adequate oversight by Parliament.The report also finds that Health Canada can’t say for sure that all eligible First Nations individuals in remote communities in Manitoba and Ontario can access sufficient clinical and client care services and medical transportation.He says Canada lacks a national strategy to deal with the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance _ the emergence and spread of drug-resistant infections, or “superbugs,” due to the misuse of powerful antimicrobial drugs.The audit also says National Defence should have kept a closer eye on its former watchdog, who extended consultant contracts without proper authorization and approved his own hospitality expense claims.Ferguson also finds that lower-risk offenders are being released from prison later in their sentences and with less time supervised in the community because Correctional Service Canada recommends early release less often.Some 80 per cent of offenders were behind bars beyond their first parole eligibility date, while more offenders are being released directly from medium- and high-security penitentiaries.last_img read more
