Raphoe school and hockey club and LYIT gets €250,000 funding

first_imgMinister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh has heralded sports funding worth almost €250,000 for a new hockey pitch at Royal & Prior Comprehensive in Raphoe and gym and training equipment at Letterkenny IT.“The Royal & Prior and Raphoe Hockey Club have a strong tradition producing top sports talent, including Olympians,” Minister McHugh said.“A grant of €112,500 has been approved – a huge reward for the school and the community. Now they have got the green light for special resurfacing works to the hockey pitch as part of funding through the Regional Sports Capital programme. “I want to thank Minister for Sport and Tourism Brendan Griffin and the Department for seeing the benefits of this project especially as this comes on the back of €1.4m for dozens of clubs in the first round of Sports Capital last week.”Some €112,500 funding was approved under the Regional Sports Capital Programme for Royal & Prior and Raphoe Hockey Club while Letterkenny IT was approved for €98,000.The Minister said: “This is a huge boost for LYIT as well, providing new gym and outdoor equipment for the teams, clubs, students and everyone else using their facilities.“In the long run it will help keep people involved in sport, encourage more people to keep fit and train.” Minister McHugh added: “Hockey is riding the crest of a wave with our women’s team going from strength to strength and bringing players from across the island to compete in the green shirt and set their sights firmly on Olympic glory in Tokyo 2020.“I hope the investment on the ground in Royal and Prior will reap more rewards by providing a top quality surface to help the current crop of players excel and to encourage more young people to take up the sport.“Raphoe and the Royal and Prior have a brilliant sporting tradition with the likes of Richard Eaton and Sabrina Barnett in hockey, Olympic badminton star Chloe Magee and family not to mention all those behind the scenes, coaching and playing sports and knows where these top class facilities will take the school and the local team. I wish you every success.”Fine Gael election candidate Councillor Martin Harley said: “This is tremendous news for the area. There is a big community in the county who are so supportive of the sports at Royal & prior and the Raphoe Hockey Club. It is a great boost for everyone associated with hockey and with only a small number of applications being approved it’s a sure sign of how the Government will support sports in the regions.”Raphoe school and hockey club and LYIT gets €250,000 funding was last modified: November 20th, 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)last_img read more

Organize Your DaVinci Resolve Work Area with New Compound Nodes

first_imgIn a fast-paced session, it’s easy to lose track of each node’s function in the tree, especially when time doesn’t allow for labelling each one. DaVinci Resolve 12’s compound nodes offer a solution.When time doesn’t allow for proper labeling, it’s easy to lose track of each node’s function in the tree. New to DaVinci Resolve 12, the compound node condenses the complexity of the node tree, which can organize client comments or help otherwise clean up the node editor. Compound nodes can also allow for various workflow applications, like applying one correction that affects multiple nodes.Or, consider a scenario: perhaps you’ve been addressing an art director’s comments for several minutes, creating multiple serial nodes that can be stepped back through if needed. Let’s say the art director now wants to toggle the result of all of those changes. The easiest way to show this would be to enable and disable a single node. In this case, compound nodes can also help.To use this new feature, nodes must be in direct sequence with each other; the first and third node in a serial node tree can’t become a compound node. First, command-click on each node to be included. The active node doesn’t need to be one of these nodes.Below, the third and fourth node are selected, denoted by the red bar above the thumbnail. The second node will not be included in the compound node even though it is the current node, as seen by the red box highlight.Right-click on any node and select Create Compound Node at the bottom.Create Compound Node is revealed when several nodes in sequence with each other are highlighted.The selected nodes will be grouped and the new node will be identified by a thicker border resembling a stack of cards. It’s subtle, which is why Blackmagic probably thought it was a good idea to label the node by default.The red border becomes thicker than when on a single node, but it’s subtle, so it’s best to keep the compound labelled to avoid confusion.From here, you can step into the group by right-clicking on it and selecting Show Compound Node.This will focus on only this group, functioning like the main node graph area and allowing for further corrections. To leave the nested group and return to the master correction, right-click in the work area and choose Exit Compound Node.Additional corrections can be performed directly on the compound node without stepping into it, or it can be enabled and disabled to satisfy the client scenario described above.Compound nodes can be nested again if needed. One useful application is to limit the compound node with a qualifier, especially if applying something from the Powergrade that features a lot of processing.Change the name of the compound node to something less generic by right-clicking it and selecting Change Label, the same functionality as other nodes. Inputs, outputs, and options for alpha channels can also be added.Labelling the compound node something more specific aids clarity, especially in long, grueling sessions.I hope a feature to destruct a compound node will be implemented by the time of the official non-beta release of Resolve 12, but at the time of this writing no details have been given.What are your favorite new features in DaVinci Resolve 12? Let us know in the comments below!last_img read more

But then a poor drop shot hit his side of the net tape. Next came a double-fault that gave Anderson a set point and prompted Kyrgios to spike his racket, which got mangled and bounced so far it landed at the feet of a line judge behind the baseline.That drew a warning from the chair umpire for racket abuse. But Kyrgios was hardly done. After gifting Anderson the set with a second consecutive double-fault, Kyrgios trudged to the sideline, head bowed, sat down and proceeded to whack his racket six times against a metal box. The loud reverberations caused Anderson to turn to his right and check out what was going on — and drew a point penalty, assessed at the beginning of the third set.ADVERTISEMENT “I don’t know if that’s the best role model you want,” Kyrgios acknowledged with a smile, after being told by a reporter that a boy sitting in the front row at Court 3 was following this display from close-up. “But, I mean, I’m not trying to show anybody, really, my frustration. I just do it for myself.“I’ve been doing it my whole career, really. I think it’s just a habit now.”As for getting in his own way during the course of a match, well, that has become something of a habit, too.And opponents are aware.Here was the way Anderson described his own mindset as they moved into the third set: “I really felt if I could stay on top of him early on, there was a chance that maybe he would give me a couple games here and there.”Kyrgios’ explanation for his collapse was that he hadn’t been able to have the proper practice or preparation heading into Roland Garros, in part because he was troubled by injury issues. He hit only four aces over the last two sets after producing 12 over the first two, but dismissed the idea that he was dealing with something physical.“The surprising thing is, I was in a winning position today,” Kyrgios said, “and I still could have won.”What really matters, of course, is that he did not. As men’s tennis searches for the face of its next generation, perhaps someone who one day will fill a void left by folks such as Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray, there are those who believe Kyrgios, 22, has the flashy game and attention-attracting personality to fit the bill.Still, it takes on-court success to lead a sport, and Kyrgios’ uneven attitude during matches can derail him at a moment’s notice. That happened Thursday, and it was noticed by Anderson — a 31-year-old South African ranked 56th and only once a quarterfinalist in 31 appearances at Grand Slam tournaments.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“While he was sort of getting into his own head and struggling with some (of) his own battles,” Anderson said, “I didn’t give him a way to get back in the match.”Other seeded players lost on Day 5 of the clay-court major, when No. 1 Andy Murray and No. 3 Stan Wawrinka moved into the third round.

Three Decades of PETA To Be Debated At Ad Week Panel With

first_imgOn September 24, New York’s 10th annual Advertising Week will feature PETA’s first-ever panel, with Pamela Anderson and PETA Vice President Dan Mathews—the man behind the iconic “Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign.“Extreme Marketing: PETA’s Unconventional, Enduring Presence in Pop Culture” will show how PETA’s provocative tactics have redefined how a charity can keep its issues relevant for decades.Anderson will screen her viral video Cruelty Doesn’t Fly — a parody of airport security, featuring her as a sultry TSA agent stripping passengers of any clothing made from animals. Anderson appeared on PETA’s first Times Square billboard and posed for this pro-vegan poster mimicking a butcher’s diagram.The panel will also include BBDO Director Toygar Bazarkaya, who will screen the ad agency’s brand-new PETA spot, narrated by Oscar winner Adrien Brody.

A lively Q&A will follow the presentation.Anderson and Mathews, who have lectured together at Cambridge and Oxford universities, will greet Advertising Week attendees and the media before the talk. Mathews is among this year’s “Out100” most influential gays and explained PETA’s unorthodox approach on Alec Baldwin’s podcast last month.
