STAND BY YOUR SAM! EIMEAR HOPING FOR ALL-IRELAND DOUBLE

Posted on by

first_imgSAM MEETS EIMEAR IN 1992IT’S a wonderful picture from 1992.A little girl, aged just six months, is lifted inside Sam Maguire as the trophy came to Co Donegal for the first time.The ‘little girl’ has of course grown up now – and Eimear McCann is hoping to meet Sam again in Donegal in the not too distant future. “Of course I don’t remember it because I was far too young,” says the now 20-year-old who works at Kia Motors.“I’d love to get my picture taken with Sam again – that would be a real All-Ireland double.“I’ve a wee boy myself now – Odhran – so I want to get his picture taken with the trophy. We just hope that 2012 can be another winning year for Donegal.”Eimear is from famous GAA stock herself. She is the grand-daughter of St Eunan’s legend and Hall of Fame Footballer, Seamus “Iron Man” McCann, who passed away earlier this year.Affectionately known as “The Chap”, Seamus won two Senior County Championship medals with St. Eunan’s (1956 & 1960).He also won several underage titles and captained the St. Eunan’s Juvenile team to their first ever 3-in-a-row of Co. Championships in 1952  – a year in which he also won a Senior Co. League medal at just 16 years of age.EIMEAR AND ODHRAN STAND BY YOUR SAM!

Wind Power Getting Cheaper, Turbines More Efficient

Posted on by

first_imgBack in 2007, the output capacity of utility-scale wind turbines in the U.S. was a little over 16,500 megawatts – a tiny fraction of what would be required to meet overall demand, but still enough to make the wind industry a viable, emerging player in electricity generation.Since then, wind power’s stature as a renewable-energy alternative has continued to grow. By 2016, economies of scale in the manufacture of wind turbines and improvements in their output capacity will reduce the cost of wind-generated electricity by 12% – enough to make wind power competitive with electricity generated by gas-powered turbines, according to a report published this month by Bloomberg New Energy Finance, which specializes in analysis of the clean-energy industry.According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance, “The best wind farms in the world already produce power as economically as coal, gas and nuclear generators; the average wind farm will be fully competitive by 2016.”Manufacturing costs over the past 27 years have dropped about 7% for every doubling of installed turbine capacity. Global average turbine prices, the BNEF report notes, have shrunk from $27 million per megawatt of capacity in 1984 to $1.85 million in 2011. By the end of this year, there will be an estimated 240 gigawatts of installed capacity worldwide, up from 0.3 gigawatts in 1984.Bigger, taller assembliesThe increase in output capacity is due to the fact that turbines have been getting bigger and more aerodynamic, and are mounted on taller towers and equipped with gearboxes and controls that combine to produce electricity more efficiently. Per-unit capacity has increased about 13 percentage points since 1984, to 34%, BNEF says.According to government estimates, average wind load is heavy enough for power generation on only about 6% of the land area in the contiguous United States, so it remains to be seen how big a role wind will eventually play on the grid. But Justin Wu, lead wind analyst at BNEF, says that both wind and photovoltaic technologies are becoming cost-competitive at a rate that will soon make them major players in the energy market.“In the next few years the mainstream world is going to wake up to wind cheaper than gas, and rooftop solar power cheaper than daytime electricity,” Wu said in a BNEF summary of the study. “Add in the same sort of deep, long-term price drops for power storage, demand management, LED lighting, and so on – and we are clearly talking about a whole new game.”last_img read more

Why You Shouldn’t Always Be Shooting RAW

Posted on by

first_imgWith raw shooting cameras so readily available, many filmmakers are opting to shoot raw as much as possible. Although there are some huge benefits with regards to raw image capture, there are also some major downsides. Raw isn’t always the best choice.There is no denying that a raw image will almost always look better than the same image captured with a compressed format. Just like shooting raw still photos (as opposed to JPEG) raw video delivers a final image that has maximized dynamic range, detail and overall image quality. If you’re reading this article, chances are you know very well just how beneficial the raw format can be. While I personally love shooting raw and use it for many of my narrative projects, there are many instances where it isn’t the right choice and I decide to shoot straight to ProRes, or to another compressed codec. Throughout this post, I want to touch on some of the reasons why you might NOT want to shoot on raw, since most of us already understand the many benefits of capturing a raw image.Limited Camera ChoiceMany shooters make the mistake of believing that they need to shoot raw in order to achieve the results they are looking for – specifically when it comes to narrative. This unfortunately leads them to limit their camera choice severely by eliminating many other great camera options than may not shoot raw. This can be particularly problematic in a number of scenarios, one of which being low-light shooting situations. For example, you might want to shoot a scene for your film at night using available street light, which in itself is a difficult task. If you don’t have a lot of experience with many raw shooting cameras (let’s use the RED Epic as an example in this case), you might not realize that most of the current raw cameras that are on the market don’t perform well in low light. So if you were to go out and rent an Epic to go and shoot your night scene, you might end up with some really grainy and unusable footage. Yes, it will be raw, but no that doesn’t mean it will look good. Conversely if you were to shoot on a camera like the Canon C300, you would likely be able to get much better results even though the camera itself isn’t nearly as powerful, and is recording to a heavily compressed format.The key takeaway when it comes to camera choice, is that the ability to shoot raw should never be your number one concern unless you are shooting something very specific that absolutely needs the additional flexibility of raw. Having the ability to shoot raw when you need it is great, but if it is going to mean that you are choosing a camera that limits your shooting options in other ways – it’s never going to be the best choice.Massive Data RequirementsAny raw camera is going to require a lot of storage, which can become very costly and cumbersome to deal with. While some cameras (such as REDs) will shoot to a compressed raw format, many others (like the BMCC) shoot uncompressed raw, and either way the file sizes for any given raw clip are going to be very large.When you consider the amount of storage that you need not only to store your dailies, but also to make backups of everything – you’re looking at a pretty big expense and a much more involved post process. You might feel like these particular issues aren’t a big deal for you, and maybe they aren’t…but it’s worth pointing out that a huge amount of television series and feature films that shoot on the Arri Alexa (which can shoot raw or ProRes), opt to shoot ProRes in order to streamline their workflow. Any great DP that I have ever worked with that owns or shoots with an Alexa regularly have no problem shooting to ProRes, even though it’s a compressed format since they know how great that image can look and they are confident enough in their skill set to not have to rely on raw to save them in post.Color Grading Is A MustIf you plan to shoot raw, you need to plan for a pretty involved color grading session. Chances are, even if you are shooting to ProRes or any other compressed format you are going to be color grading to some degree, but when shooting raw the overall workflow becomes more dense.I make a good portion of my living as a colorist and work with raw footage as well as compressed footage nearly every day, and from first hand experience I would say that I normally prefer working with compressed material if it was well shot. This may come as a surprise as obviously raw is a better format for color grading on a technical level (as it holds way more data in each clip), but how much does it matter?Raw can be immensely helpful when dealing with a blown out window, or any number of other situations that were difficult to shoot on the day of. But in many cases you simply don’t need the power that raw offers. When an experienced DP hands off a ProRes project to me, I know that I’ll likely be able to color grade it a lot more easily than when an inexperienced DP hands off a raw project to me. The reason of course being that the experienced DP has lit and exposed their image in a way that calls for a less intensive color grading session, and therefore needs to rely less on the raw image format.ConclusionRaw is a great format, and I appreciate the benefits of shooting with it. Many of my own films have been shot on RED or BMCC in raw. However, there are some major considerations when it comes to shooting raw including the limited camera options you have, the big data requirements, and the need for a more involved color grading process. There is something to be said about shooting with a camera that is simple to use (especially on a small scale shoot) and will allow you to stay light on your feet and not miss critical shots as a result of becoming bogged down with the raw format. You need to approach your choice carefully.last_img read more

SPORT-LD IND 2

Posted on by

first_img(REOPENS DEL 17) (REOPENS DEL 17) It was Ronchi, who handed India the opening when he went for a sweep slog against Jadeja and ended up handing a top-edge to Aswhin at point. The mistake ended his 102-run stand with Santner, who scored his maiden Test fifty and kept fighting in the second session. After Ronchis departure, Santner remained solid from one end and defied the Indian bowlers for the next 10 overs with BJ Watling (18). Together they were involved in a 36-run stand, which was broken by paceman Shami, who trapped the wicket-keeper batsman LBW. In his next over, Shami breached the defence of Mark Craig. In a double blow to the Kiwis, Craig was also ruled out of the series due to a side strain. Jeetan Patel has been named his replacement in the squad. The two wickets in successive overs, pegged New Zealand back and they were on the verge of a huge defeat. Santner struck seven fours and two sixes in his 179-ball fighting knock, before an Ashwin delivery jumped and turned from outside leg, took an edge and went straight to silly point fielder Rohit Sharma. India needed only three wickets in the second session and the in-form Ashwin took all three as he sent back Sodhi and Wagner. At the start of the day, batting with utmost caution, the overnight New Zealand players took 19 balls to score their first run but after getting their eye in, Ronchi and Santner negotiated the spin confidently to keep the hosts waiting for an early opening.

Crown wants 2 years for man who took girl to US to

Posted on by

first_imgCRANBROOK, B.C. — A special prosecutor is recommending up to two years in prison for a former polygamous leader in Bountiful, B.C., convicted of removing a child from Canada to marry a member of his fundamentalist sect in the United States.Peter Wilson said that as an ex-bishop of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, James Oler is culpable for facilitating the directives of church leader and prophet Warren Jeffs, who ordered him to bring the underage child to the U.S. to be married in 2004. Wilson said aggravating sentencing factors against Oler included the girl’s age at the time, his position of trust and his position as a bishop and religious authority in the community.“He occupied the highest priesthood office in the community of Bountiful because he was the bishop and that office made him directly answerable to Warren Jeffs,” said Wilson, in front of Justice Martha Devlin in Cranbrook Supreme Court.During Oler’s trial, court heard that church records seized by American law enforcement indicated that Jeffs called Oler on June 23, 2004, and ordered him to bring the 15-year-old girl to the U.S. to be married.A trial witness, whose identity is protected by a publication ban, was also named by Jeffs in the directive to come to the U.S. and be married as a child bride.The witness testified she travelled with two adults to the United States on June 24, 2004, crossing into Idaho at the Porthill crossing south of Creston and pulling into a rest area shortly after. She went into the woods to relieve herself, and when she returned, another van containing Oler and the 15-year-old girl had arrived.All but one piled into the newly arrived van and headed to Cedar City, Utah, and later to Mesquite, Nev.Church records indicate 18 marriages took place on June 25, as the witness, the 15-year-old girl, and Oler himself were all married in separate ceremonies.Wilson suggested that the judge could exercise her discretion to consider Oler’s conduct in the removal of the trial witness even though she wasn’t included in his indictment.“It’s my submission that no unfairness to Mr. Oler will result in the event you choose to exercise your discretion to consider his role in the removal of (the witness) from Canada,” Wilson argued.However, Devlin questioned whether she could be satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that Oler was guilty of all the same elements of the child removal offence involving the trial witness, given that Oler may not have known she was under 16 at the time.Oler does not have a lawyer. Joe Doyle, who is serving as a friend of the court to ensure a fair trial, suggested a sentencing range between six to 18 months in prison, drawing parallels to an earlier ruling against Brandon James Blackmore and Emily Ruth Gail Blackmore.They were convicted and sentenced for the same child removal charge after being ordered to bring a 13-year-old girl to marry Jeffs. Brandon James Blackmore was sentenced to 12 months in jail, while Emily Ruth Gail Blackmore was given a seven-month jail term.Oler, however, was acquitted because the presiding judge was unable to determine, based on the trial evidence, whether he did anything within Canada’s borders to arrange the girl’s transfer to the U.S. The acquittal was successfully challenged by the Crown and a new trial was ordered by the B.C. Court of Appeal.Devlin found Oler guilty of the child removal charge in a new trial that was held in Cranbrook earlier this year.The court has set Aug. 29 as a tentative date for sentencing.The court heard that Oler is living in isolation in Alberta after being stripped of his bishop’s appointment and excommunicated from the Bountiful community nearly a decade ago for participating in legal proceedings examining the constitutionality of Canada’s polygamy laws.He was also charged and convicted of polygamy alongside Bountiful leader Winston Blackmore and sentenced to three months house arrest in 2018.(Cranbrook Daily Townsman)Trevor Crawley, Cranbrook Daily Townsman, The Canadian Presslast_img read more
