The people of Glenties are asking candidates in this year’s local and European elections not to cover their town in election literature.Glenties Community Development Group are asking all political parties and their candidates not to erect political posters or any material promoting candidates in the town in the run-up to the May 24th voting.The area includes all roads and areas with the town boundary of Glenties or within the 50kph speed limits. Secretary of GCDG, Richard Quigley said this request is being made, as in previous years, to ensure the appearance of Glenties remains as pristine as possible approaching the summer months.He said “We have an exceptionally hard working Tidy Towns Committee whose preparations for this year’s competition will be in full swing come election time.“Additionally we are also planning a major project for the town’s streetscape under the Town and Village Renewal Scheme and the presence of election material and associated cable ties only detract from the town and the hard work that is going on to improve the town’s appearance.“We hope that all political parties, and their candidates, will respect this request and understand the reasoning behind it and also understand that this is something we have requested of political parties for some years now and the co-operation of all parties and candidates has been much appreciated thus far. “We wish all candidates in the elections well and look forward to continued co-operation between us all.”Glenties asks candidates not to become poster boys and girls during election was last modified: April 4th, 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:donegalGlentiespostersrequest
8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market mike melanson Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Sometimes, it’s the community that makes a site what it is. It’s that unique thread of personality, inside jokes and general rules of engagement that gives it the je ne sais quoi and separates it from the crowd. What would Reddit be without Narwhals and bacon, for example? For anonymous message board 4chan, its that unique community identity that’s lead to such wondrous Internet memes as Pedobear, Rick Rolling and Chocolate Rain.So, with4chan founder Chris Poole launching a new site, can we expect more of the same or will a new venture attract a new crowd?According to Michael Arrington over at TechCrunch, Poole has “taken what works [at 4chan], changed other things, and created something wholly new.” That new endeavor, called Canvas, is a service that lets users interact around images, remixing them to form newer, better, and likely ever more vulgar and disturbing imagery from such sacrosanct stock as pudgy babies and teddy bears. And this is the thing – because it is a service started by the creators of one of the most vile, immature locales on the Internet, can expect more of the same? Take a gander at the screenshot: Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Poole told TechCrunch that “Canvas is all about discovery, sharing and play” and that other types of content, such as video, audio and rich text, are on the way. “Our goal,” writes Pool on the company’s launch announcement, “is to create the best place to share and play with images.”Canvas will have accounts and user profiles – as opposed to 4chan’s completely detached, userless experience – but they will be “nothing more than a gathering of the various content [the user] added to the site.” The service opened up today to several thousand beta testers and you can request an invite by logging on to the site using your Facebook account. But this connection to your Facebook identity is tentative at best and only exists for purposes of onboarding new users. That means the most important 4chan characteristic – anonymity – will remain in tact. This point seems to be the primary for many taking a first look at the service today.Arrington finishes his discussion of Canvas by noting that “Canvas is a separate entity from 4chan, with no connection other than Poole. But my guess is more than a few of the 4chan crowd may head over to Canvas to take a gander.” ReadWriteWeb alum Adrianne Jeffries finishes with a similar caveat, warning that “If Mr. Poole wants Canvas to appeal to the big kids, he needs to ditch some of his old crowd, and real ID seems to be his solution.”From the looks of things, though, it looks like only a matter of time before pudgy “babbys” with mouths for belly buttons devolves into the standard 4chan fare that, as Jeffries notes, “runs ads almost exclusively for anime and porn.” Related Posts Tags:#news#web
PASADENA, CA – JANUARY 01: A B-2 Stealth Bomber flys over before the 2018 College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Oklahoma Sooners at the Rose Bowl on January 1, 2018 in Pasadena, California. (Photo by Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images)The song is surely burned into the memory of every college football fan. So much so that one likely can’t listen to the lyrics without thinking about Ohio State or Oregon or Florida State or Alabama or ESPN. Some legends are told, some turn to dust or to gold But you will remember me, remember me for centuriesIt’s Fall Out Boy’s “Centuries” and it was the theme song of the inaugural College Football Playoff. It was played an insane amount of times during the two semifinal games and the championship game. How many times, exactly? According to the Reddit user, Emperor_of_Orange, 45 times – 10 times in the Rose Bowl, 18 times in the Sugar Bowl and 17 times in the CFB Playoff National Championship Game. Here it is for hopefully one, final time.

Facebook Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Login/Register With: Advertisement FILM: Ordinary DaysDIRECTED BY: Renuka Jeyapalan, Kris Booth, Jordan CanningWHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR FILM?The film was inspired by two separate thoughts about the human experience. The first was about exploring lives in transition; specifically when it comes to parent and child relationships. The natural march of time forces family structures to change but it’s always a challenging, messy and sometimes, painful process. In Ordinary Days, we have struggling empty-nesting parents, a father-to-be who can barely take care of himself and a young woman determined to follow her own path alone. The second thought is that we all have these ordinary, normal, boring days: we work, we study, we sleep, we pick up the kids from school, we vacuum, we pay the bills – our time is spent on all this minutiae. But everyone has experienced those moments when suddenly something extraordinary happens – there’s a phone call with happy or tragic news, or, as in the film, an unexpected incident occurs and those ordinary days are interrupted and possibly, lives are changed forever. How do we react? Do we panic or stay calm? Can we rise to face the adversity? What happens to us afterwards? It’s always under this type of pressure and stress that we find out who we really are.WHAT WERE THE GREATEST CHALLENGES YOU FACED DURING THE FILM?I would say one of the biggest challenges was figuring out how to make a self-contained story cinematic and emotional. I directed the third segment of ORDINARY DAYS called “Cara.” It was a unique section in that it was a very self-contained story. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but there were many story restrictions in the Cara section and I had to work hard to make sure the story never felt boring, but always kept moving.WHAT APPEAL DO YOU THINK YOUR FILM WILL HAVE FOR AUDIENCES?This will appeal to anyone who enjoys a crafty suspense thriller. The film is a emotional rollercoaster with slow burn tension that builds to a twisty but satisfying ending and features an intriguing lead female character. It’s a bit of a mystery-box story in that each new chapter reframes the one before, allowing the audience to play along, picking up clues and connections as more is revealed.WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME A CREATOR?I’ve always loved movies and have been obsessed with them for as long as I can remember. But I never thought it could be a career until I took a film class at university. We analyzed a scene from THE GODFATHER where we discussed how the form and aesthetics of the film were used to tell the story and elicit emotion. Something clicked with me in that moment and I realized that I could do that. I could use all those cinematic elements to tell a story. From then on, I knew I couldn’t do anything else. Ultimately, what inspires me to keep creating and telling stories for the screen is a desire to express a feeling or emotion that will connect with an audience in a meaningful way. Telling stories is a form of self-expression, but it’s also a means to connect.WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NEXT?I’m currently developing a half-hour workplace comedy called GIRL IN THE BOYS ROOM for the CBC. I’ve also started to mull over ideas for my next feature film.WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO ASPIRING FILMMAKERS?If you know that filmmaking is 100% what you want to pursue, without any reservations, then go do it and don’t let anything or anyone stop you. The only way it won’t work out is if you give up. So don’t give up. There will be highs and many, many lows. But if you keep going and keep learning and bettering your craft, it will happen.WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 3 FAVOURITE FILMS OF ALL TIME?This is an impossible question. But I’ll say: THE GODFATHER, IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE, and Kieslowski’s DECALOGUE.IF YOU HAD TO DESCRIBE YOUR FILM IN THREE WORDS … WHAT WOULD THEY BE?Tense. Emotional. Hopeful.IF YOU COULD RESHOOT ANY FILM MADE IN THE PAST 20 YEARS, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND HOW WOULD YOU CHANGE IT?I would never want to reshoot any film.WHO ARE YOUR MENTORS? (AND WHY)Al Magee. He’s the producer of my show GIRL IN THE BOYS ROOM. He’s also a story genius. I have learned so much about how to tell a rigorous story by working with him. He’s such a collaborative, patient, and positive person and he loves what he does. It’s very inspiring to work with him and I have learned so much.WHISTLER FILM FESTIVAL SHOWTIMES:– DECEMBER 2, 2017, 9:30 PM – MYACGET YOUR TICKETS AT: https://whistlerfilmfestival.com/film/ordinary-days/SYNOPSIS: Cara Cook is a bright, athletic, college student who disappears without a trace.

What is surprising is that it’s the most impressive draft class in modern history. At the most basic level, there were just a lot of Buckeyes taken in the draft. Twelve Ohio State players were selected during the 2016 NFL draft, the 25th time a school has had such a distinction. And, in fact, it’s the fourth time Ohio State has sent at least a dozen players to the pros via the NFL draft:But although Ohio State was not exactly hurting in the quantity department, the quality of those picks sets the team apart. Consider, for example, that although the Texas Longhorns had 17 players drafted in 1984, eight of those players were selected with the 180th pick or later; conversely, all 12 Ohio State players were selected in the first four rounds, with Jones being the last pick at number 139. Using the draft value chart, which assigns the average marginal approximate value produced by each draft pick, we can give more weight to the best picks to provide a more accurate measure of class strength. Here is how many points of draft value were used on each Ohio State player in the 2016 draft: 1950Minnesota13 Total 1987Miami (FL)7108.1 2006Ohio State9111.5 WRMichael Thomas4710.1 WRBraxton Miller856.3 YEARSCHOOLPICKS FSVonn Bell618.4 Using this methodology, the best draft class between the 1970 merger and this year came out of Miami in 2004. And yet this class beat that mark by 31.7 percent! That Hurricanes draft was great, with Sean Taylor (fifth overall), Kellen Winslow Jr. (sixth), Jonathan Vilma (12th), D.J. Williams (17th), Vernon Carey (19th) and Vince Wilfork (21st) all selected in the first round. But after those six players, Miami didn’t have another player drafted until the seventh round. By contrast, the Buckeyes had five first-round picks, two more in the second round, three in the third and two more in the fourth. As a result, it stands out as the most impressive draft class in modern history.

In his first season, the Buckeyes went 12-0, although the team was ineligible for a bowl game or postseason play. In 2013, the team began 12-0 again before being upset by Michigan State in the Big 10 championship game. Two seasons ago, Ohio State won the national championship, going 12-1 in the regular season and defeating Wisconsin, Alabama and Oregon in the postseason behind third-string quarterback Cardale Jones.

New West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has hinted that he will be making more signings this summer following Andy Carroll and Winston Reid’s injury blows earlier this monthBoth players have provoked old injuries during the club’s pre-season training program at their camp in Switzerland and have now been sent home, upon confirmation that they will likely be out for the next three months.Since his appointment in May, Pellegrini has been busy in the transfer market for West Ham and has already acquired eight new players with the midfielders Felipe Anderson and Jack Wilshere the latest recruits.But Pellegrini has suggested that more may be on the way in wake of Carrol and Reid’s latest injury setbacks.Report: Rice is committed to West Ham not a United move George Patchias – September 4, 2019 Declan Rice is committed to his West Ham contract and not a move to Manchester United.In an interview reported by football.london, Rice opens up…“We are obviously very sad to hear that Andy and Winston have suffered setbacks,” the Chilean told Football London.“This is a big blow for them and us, but we hope to see them back in action as soon as possible.“It does mean that we have lost two senior players in key areas, though, and we’ll continue to work hard with the owners to make further additions to strengthen the playing squad, beyond the five new signings already confirmed.”Pellegrini will take charge of his first competitive game at West Ham on August 11 in a trip to Liverpool for their opening game of the Premier League season.
Italy international Mario Balotelli reveals that the coming of new coach Vieira affected his decision.Speaking to the OGCNice TV as reported by Football Italia, Balotelli said:“That’s for sure. That changed 80 per cent of my decision.”Marseille were openly courting SuperMario and there were reports he had a medical with them.“I had proposition from Marseille, I spoke with them, I have a good relation with the Coach of Marseille and they were one of the five clubs.“I don’t know why only Marseille came out, as I never spoke about that. I had a proposition from them, just as I did from other teams.”Corini tells Balotelli to “raise his game” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 According to the Brescia coach, Mario Balotelli “needs to raise his game if he wants to face Juventus” as his team is set to host Bologna.Considering the bitter rivalry between Nice and Marseille, Balo’s supporters weren’t happy with the speculation.“I look at my career, to be honest, I cannot worry about what supporters say. I am sorry if they are sad, but that’s part of my job and I can’t do much about that. All I can say is that when I am in Nice, I give everything for Nice, but one day I won’t be here. That’s normal.“I understand the supporter’s way of thinking, but they have to understand me too. For example, Nice are not in Europe this year and Marseille are, that’s one of the reasons why I considered them as an option. I look at what is best and in the end I chose to stay here.“I had a very big offer from China and I said no, not for now. I love to play football and my objective is to have two very important years, as I want to play in the European Championship and that would be difficult if I went to China.“I love football and still love football, so money can wait. I tell my supporters thank you, I’ll try to make you happy this season and try my best. As for Nice supporters, they should always follow this club.”
