KILCAR LIFT COUNTY U-21 TITLE FOR FIRST TIME IN 37 YEARS

first_imgKilcar 3-9 Naomh Conaill 2-10Kilcar are Donegal U-21 Champions for the first time since 1974 – just edging out Naomh Conaill by two points in a thrilling final at O’Donnell Park in Letterkenny today.Kilcar county star Patrick McBrearty had an inspired game, particularly in the first half as his side raced into an early lead. Dermot McGinley fired in a superb goal and when McBreaty fired into the net, the Kilcar supporters were on their feet.Naomh Conaill seemed to wake up after that and there were a few moments when the tempers got the better of the players before Dermot Molloy found the net with a great effort.But the Kilcar fans couldn’t believe their eyes when McGinley raced onto a through ball and scored his second – and Kilcar’s third – goal of the first half which ended on a scoreline of 3-06 to 1-03.Naomh Conaill lads must have had a roasting at half time as they came flying out and points from Seamus Corcoran and Dermot Molloy reduced the deficit. And when a ‘nothing’ ball from Eunan Doherty went over the Kilcar keeper into the net, it looked as though Naomh Conaill would pull it back. Molloy added another score from a free to reduce the deficit to just three points.Ryan McHugh scored for Kilcar as his side looked to re-establish a foothold on the game but Naomh Conaill – with Molloy in top form – continued to press and the supporters were delighted when John O’Malley levelled.There was nothing in it terms of score at this stage – or on the park.But then Mark McHugh won and coverted a free-kick to put Kilcar in the lead again; a lead extended a few moments later when McBrearty pointing – to give Kilcar the win by 3-09 to 2-10.It was an incredible advertisement for U-21 county football. Congratulations to everyone at Kilcar. And commiserations to a good Naomh Conaill side.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldaily Follow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comKILCAR LIFT COUNTY U-21 TITLE FOR FIRST TIME IN 37 YEARS was last modified: December 18th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:GAAkilcarNaomh Conaillunder 21 finallast_img read more

SA-DRC pact paves way for Grand Inga

first_img20 May 2013 With South Africa confirmed as a key partner, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has announced October 2015 as the launch date for construction of the first phase of what could eventually be the largest hydroelectric plant in the world. The Grand Inga project on the Congo River is expected, once all the phases are complete, to generate a massive 40 000 MW of electricity, bringing renewable power to half of the African continent. The initialling of a historic energy cooperation treaty between the DRC and South Africa in Lubumbashi in March was a key milestone in the process of bringing the project, first conceived in the early 1970s, closer to fruition. At a meeting in Paris on the weekend, organised by the DRC government and with a high-level South African delegation in attendance, a range of stakeholders consulted on the implementation of the first phase of the project, Inga 3, which is expected to cost in the region of US$12-billion and produce almost 4 800 MW of electricity. Two existing dams, Inga 1 and 2, have been in operation since 1972 and 1982 respectively, together generating nearly 1 800 MW. In terms of the March treaty, South Africa “expects to purchase a significant share of the electricity production of the new dam, thus confirming itself as a key partner,” the DRC government said in a statement on Saturday. “As such, the Republic of South Africa will take 2 500 MW of the 4 800 MW of future power production of Inga 3, thereby becoming the principal purchaser.” Garrith Bezuidenhoudt, chief of staff in South Africa’s Department of Energy, said in the statement that the South African government had “affirmed our commitment to the project by already provisioning for this purchase in our budgetary plan”. Inga 3 is expected to fill the power gap in the DRC, with its fast-growing population and expanding industries, and to help meet burgeoning demand in South Africa. Subsequent phases, adding up to an eventual total capacity of 40 000 MW, will allow countries in southern Africa, north-east Africa and parts of west Africa to benefit from production at the site. “Grand Inga will thus provide more than half of the continent with renewable energy at a low price,” Bruno Kalala, the DRC’s minister of water resources and electricity, told Saturday’s meeting. However, Kalala said, issues around transport and connectivity had yet to be addressed. “Inga is a factor for integration, at both a regional and international level.” According to the DRC government, three consortia are competing to develop the project: Sinohydro and Three Gorges Corporation from China, the operator of China’s Three Gorges dam, currently the world’s largest; Actividades de Construccion y Servicios, Eurofinsa and AEE from Spain; and the Daewoo-Posco-SNC Lavalin consortium from Korea and Canada. The Africa Development Bank, which has been involved in the project since 2009, is financing the base studies and consultants, and has been joined by the World Bank, the French Development Agency, the European Investment Bank and the Development Bank of Southern Africa. “The question of financing is a major issue in the selection process,” said Hela Cheikhrouhou, director for energy environment and climate change at the African Development Bank. “It is the public-private partnership financing solutions which will be vital for the success of the project.” SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

10 Lessons in Creativity From the ArtGame Weekend in Paris

first_imgguest author 1 Related Posts What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Tags:#mobile#web Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagementcenter_img ArtGame weekend is a creative and collaborative challenge that brings together developers, game designers, and artists to create mobile artgames. The first ArtGame weekend took place in Paris, France last month. By combining art plus gameplay plus open collaboration, nine ideas became nine artgames – and more than 40 artists, developers, and video game professionals an intense teamwork experience. As you can imagine, we learned a lot. Here are 10 lessons we’d like to share with you.Guest author Julien Dorra organized the first ArtGame weekend in Paris with Nod-a and Silicon Sentier. Charlotte and Howie Liu assisted in the editing.1: “With more time, we would have created a less good game,”Brice RoyHaving a tight time constraint forces you to find the core idea, the thing you can’t do without. Constraints are good for creativity – they make you create better artwork, better games, better projects.DIY color test chart with sticky notes for Balade2: Starting to build something answers all the questions about what to do next.Idea, prototype, test. Start to build something in small iterations, just like the Number32 team did. They started out with strictly no idea about what type of gameplay to use, but ended up adopting the one most appropriate to the small world they created. Iterate and you’ll end up answering your questions about what your creation must look like.3: You can build great teams out of complete strangers. Instantly.Here is the recipe for instant team building: Give each potential team member the opportunity to talk in front of everyone about what she likes and which ideas she wants to push further. Give some general directions about diversity and size in a team. Finally, just let everybody match themselves with the right team.4: Comfort, good food, and care help people focus on their creation.Create an environment where people don’t even have to think about getting food, Wi-Fi, and support because it’s already here when needed. When a full support team cares for you, you can focus more on your goals and how to attain them. Permanent test bench for Number325: “You need to lose a little time to gain more time,”Ebene ZolliEven when facing a brutal deadline, you don’t have to rush. Sleep and take breaks. You will more than regain the time spent. Jonathan Perret used the Pomodoro Technique to force himself to take five minutes breaks every 25 minutes. The result? He had an iPad artgame completed at the end of the weekend.6: Steps and goals are useful, but help people create ad-hoc processes as they go.You don’t need to set-up a full-blown methodology before starting. You do need to choose the right creative and organizational process for the task at hand. But as tasks change, you will need to change how you manage them too. Your methodology is an iterative creation.7: A team needs regular reality-checks by outsiders. Who is your coach?You will be blinded. You will lose sight of your core goals and objectives. Having an outsider asking you the right questions can help you stay on track. At ArtGame weekend, around 10 coaches and facilitators helped the teams get the most of the weekend.8: You can mix good competition with great cooperation. That is coopetition.Competing doesn’t mean working against others. Outcomes are far greater for everybody when you cooperate with your competitors — just look at the open source ecosystem. Find something that you and all your competitors can share and build in common, publicly.Sunday, presentation of Générations9: Hardware matters on mobile. Camera, accelerometers, multitouch changes everything.The hardware is the key to innovative software on mobile platforms, just as the browser is the key to innovative web apps. For example, gyroscopes will add a new level of precision in measuring how a mobile phone is moving.Keep an eye on hardware adoption. Beware of fragmentation.10: Working in the open brings help, attention, and fresh points of view.Obscurity is the real enemy for most of the new projects you want to launch. Be open and bring outsiders in. Working in an open way will get you more visibility, will push people to give you advice, and will make it easier to ask for help when needed.11: Bonus lesson: Networking is not exchanging business cards. It’s sharing views, goals, and experiences with people.Most networking events fail to really connect people. You gather business cards, maybe send an email or two… but really, you just don’t know the people you met, so what’s the point?When you share a real experience with others, be it at a Barcamp, online, or during an intense weekend of work and fun like the ArtGame weekend, you know the people, what they think, what they like, and what you could do together.You are networking at a far more profound level.

Not the Opposite

first_imgA lot of what is written is written in a way that suggests that the opposite of what is being discussed would be better.Yesterday I happened upon an article in the Economist titled “In Praise of Laziness,” in which the author suggested that there is too great a focus on working hard. He suggested that Sheryl Sandberg’s advice that women should “lean in” was problematic. He also suggested that John Bernard’s idea that one should do “Business at the Speed of Now” and my friend, Michael Port’s book title “Book Yourself Solid” were indicative of a world in which people are trying to do too much.Reading the first paragraph would give one the idea that they should “lean back,” being passive and reactive instead of intentional and proactive about their careers and their work. If business at the speed of now is a bad idea, perhaps one should do “business at the speed of later?” Even though it’s clear the author has never read Port’s book, one would believe that you should book yourself in such a way as to ensure that you have less business than you need to sustain your business.These are poorly chosen straw men, having nothing whatsoever to do with the primary suggestion to spend more time reflecting and thinking and less time with unnecessary meetings, make work, and email. But the article provides an excellent example of describing something as negative in a way that makes it appear as if its opposite is better.The opposite of cold calling is portrayed as being social media. The opposite of interrupting the client is waiting for them to initiate a conversation. The opposite of outbound is inbound. The opposite of gaining commitments is allowing the prospective client to determine what comes next and when.What is wrong with each of these examples is that they are shown as opposites. They are presented in such a way as to make them appear mutually exclusive. One prospecting medium does not preclude another. One choice to interrupt your prospective client with a call doesn’t suggest that other approaches are not helpful. The decision to gain the commitments that move deals forward in no way eliminates a collaborative conversation about what comes next.It’s not “this” or “that.” It is “this” and “that,” in the right measure, at the right time, as it pertains to a certain outcome.

Delhi govt discontinues road try test for recalibrated fare metres

first_imgNEW DELHI: In a major relief to auto-rickshaw drivers, the Delhi government on Wednesday announced to discontinue the practice of ‘road try test’ after recalibration of auto fare meters. The announcement was made by the Delhi Consumer Affairs and Legal Metrology Department Minister, Imran Hussain following directions from the Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal.Hussain said that the Chief Minister had directed him to hold consultation meeting with all stake-holders to simplify the procedure for re-calibration of auto fare meters. This initiative of Kejriwal government will benefit the auto rickshaw drivers as well as the commuters, as recalibration will be done faster, which will also save cost and time. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderThe Delhi government had recently revised the auto fares. This has necessitated re-calibration of auto fare meters after upgradation of their software. The re-calibration of auto fare meters is about to start shortly. Hussain also noted that the Auto Rickshaw drivers were also complaining about charging of exorbitant prices by Manufacturers, Repairers and Dealers of Auto Rickshaw fare meters for up gradation of software. The Minister announced that for providing relief and succour to Auto Rickshaw drivers, an advisory has been issued to the Manufacturers, Repairers and Dealers of Auto Rickshaw fare meters for not charging more than Rs 400 per meter plus applicable GST for undertaking software upgradation post revision of auto fares. Previously, after re-calibration and initial verification by Weights & Measures Department (now renamed Legal Metro logy) in its laboratory at Wazirpur, the Auto Rickshaw drivers had to go for the road try test at Rewla Khanpur, Najafgarh. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsThe Auto Rickshaw drivers were demanding that road try test at the far away location at Najafgarh was inconvenient to them and it was also causing loss of a day’s earning. They were requesting for making the re-calibration process smooth and convenient and for conducting at central location. The Department has so far been testing the Auto/Taxi Fare Meter with the help of electronic pulse generating machine in the lab situated at Taxi Meter Unit which checks the auto/taxi fare meter on the basis of pulse generated for distance travelled and calculates fare. Thereafter the meters were being tested on road through Road Try Test at Rewla Khanpur. From now on wards, the Auto Rickshaw drivers will not go for the Road Try Test at Rewla Khanpur and the verification certificate of Auto Fare Meter Testing will be issued after testing at Wazirpur Laboratory only.last_img read more
