first_imgBUNDORAN Town Council was within its rights to hold a meeting in committee – in other words excluding the public – yesterday, understands.The council went into committee when a member of the public – Patricia McCafferty – refused to sign a certain undertaking.She has made a complaint to gardai about the matter today. But sources told that the Council acted within the law and “does not have a case to answer.”One insider told us: “We are not sure of the nature of Ms McCafferty’s complaint to gardai but the council acted on proper legal advice.”The row has been ongoing for some time.Council members have objected in the past to Ms McCafferty’s interruptions of council meetings. They had asked her to work within local government rules on future matters but she has refused to given a written undertaking to the authority.Town Manager Gerry Martin said today that he hoped December’s meeting will be held in public.Follow us on us on anything on BUNDORAN COUNCIL ‘NO CASE TO ANSWER’ IN PUBLIC ROW was last modified: November 2nd, 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:Bundoran Town Councillast_img read more


first_imgWith their hopes of finishing in the play-off spots now gone, Finn Harps’ season now rests on progression in the FAI Cup and on Sunday they face a trip to Intermediate Cup holders Avondale United in Cork (kick-off 2.00pm).Harps have booked a place in the FAI Cup quarter finals!While Avondale may be a non-League of Ireland side, Harps manager Ollie Horgan is warning his players and the clubs supporters that Sunday’s opponents are a formidable side.“I know Avondale well over the years,” said Horgan. “I had many battles with them while with Fanad United. I think we played them in two quarter-finals and one semi-final of the Intermediate cup with Avondale winning on all three occasions. “They have won the last four intermediate Cups – an incredible achievement – with a group of very experienced players,” continued Horgan.“They are physically very strong but have players of serious ability in all areas of the field from goalkeeper O’Leary through to Danny Long up front. They are an extremely well run club, with past players coming back to help out, with Dave O’Keefe now taking over in charge,” he said.Harps aren’t going into the game in the best of form. Their 2-1 victory over Wexford Youths last month in the previous round of the Cup brought their run of results to just one defeat in fifteen games.But, since then, Harps have recorded back-to-back defeats against the bottom two sides in the First Division with Shamrock Rovers ‘B’ and Cobh Ramblers both winning on 1-0 scorelines over Horgan’s Harps in the last fortnight. “No time is a good time to go on a bad run,” says Horgan. “While we had plenty of possession in both games, we didn’t score in either with poor finishing and good defending from the opposition.“We started well on Saturday down in Cobh but it was similar to the previous week where we had a few good chances but didn’t take them,” he said. “When Cobh scored a good goal from a free kick, we struggled to break them down, they defended very well and could have scored a second on the break.”Horgan will have to plan for Sunday’s trip to Avondale without the suspended duo of Damien McNulty and Shaun McCarron. Kevin McHugh hasn’t recovered from injury and also misses out while doubts remain over the fitness of Packie Mailey.Having waited ten years to appear in the last eight of the competition, Harps will now do so far the second time in successive seasons having reached this stage of the competition last year also. Then, after a 1-1 draw against Drogheda United at Finn Park. Harps lost 2-0 in the replay at United Park.A victory on Sunday would see Harps reach the semi-finals of the Cup for just the sixth time in their history with the last of these appearances coming fifteen years ago with a Terryland Park meeting with Galway United. Should Sunday’s game in Avondale Park finish in a draw, a replay will take place at Finn Park next Wednesday night (17th September) with a 7.45pm kick-off.AVONDALE STAND BETWEEN HARPS AND A PLACE IN CUP SEMI-FINAL was last modified: September 12th, 2014 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:AvondaleFAI Cup Finalfinn harpslast_img read more

Warriors encouraged with DeMarcus Cousins’ progress

first_imgOAKLAND – Do the Warriors have a third Splash Brother?DeMarcus Cousins joked he once was during the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup. Now that he is in a Warriors uniform, though, Cousins has a chance to earn the nickname. He auditioned fairly well at least at the end of Wednesday’s morning shootaround.Then, Cousins splashed a mix of 3-pointers and pull-up jumpers on the first day he participated in team non-contact drills. What will that be like when Cousins can show that in an actual game?“ …last_img read more

Runs an issue as Crabs succumb to Seals

first_imgThe Humboldt Crabs certainly had chances to put runs on the board Tuesday night but, minus a two-run home run off the bat of Damian Henderson in the sixth inning — his second out-of-the-park shot this season — the Crabs, once again in front of their home fans, struggled to bring runs home as they fell 6-2 to the visiting Seals Baseball Club and to 1-6 at the Arcata Ball Park in 2019.Early on in Tuesday’s game the Crabs had a pair of opportunities to keep pace with the Seals.

The $64 Yi Action Camera Might Give GoPro a Run for its Money

first_imgYi Action Camera Test FootagePricing and AvailabilityUnfortunately the Yi Action Camera isn’t available in the United States yet, but it’s safe to say that due to high demand, we’ll likely see the Yi Action Camera very soon. It is currently retailing for $64 in China.To learn more about the Yi Action Cam, check out a few of these resources:Chinese Company Launches a $64 Competitor to the GoPro Hero with Beefier Specs – PetaPixelChinese Company Xiaomi Releases a $64 GoPro Competitor – NewsShooterXiaomi Introduces A GoPro-Style Action Camera That Costs Just $64 – Tech CrunchWhat do you think of the Yi Action Camera? Will it be serious competition for GoPro? Anybody have family in China that can pick a few of these up for us!? Share your thoughts in the comments below.   Stills FPS  7 fps   Frames per Second>  Up to 60fps   Resolution  Full 1080p   Field of View  155° (4mm equivalent) This camera is going to drop the price of action-cameras significantly.Every now and then, a revolutionary product hits the market and changes the way the video world is structured. Historic examples include the Canon 5D Mark ii, the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, and more recently, the Sony A7S.However, when it comes to action cameras, it’s really been all about GoPro. Sure, you’ll be able to find other action camera alternatives out there, but GoPro is to the action camera market what Kleenex is to the tissue industry. However, a recent announcement may make GoPro a little less dominant in the action camera market. Behold: The Yi Action Camera.The camera, created by Chinese camera manufacturer Xiaomi, bears a striking resemblance to the GoPro. Its specs are almost identical to the GoPro Hero 3+ Silver, a camera that retails for $299. The new Yi Action Camera retails for about $64, making it about 5x cheaper than its GoPro equivalent.The Yi Action Camera features 1080p video at 60fps and it can take up to 16MP images at up to 7 frames per second. Max card storage is around 64GB with a 155 degree field of view, which is the equivalent of a 4mm lens on a full frame sensor. The camera is also waterproof to a depth of 40 feet, and it weighs a mere 72g, compared to the 111g GoPro.The Camera is also controllable from a smartphone via built-in WiFi capabilities. Users have the option of purchasing a variety of mounts, ranging from a selfie stick to perhaps the greatest rig ever created – the cat rig (see the image above!)Yi Action Camera Specscenter_img   Memory  64gb   Weight  72g (.16 lbs)   Water Resistance  Up to 40ft   Stills  16MPlast_img read more

World Cup 2011

first_imgPiyush ChawlaYou do not have to try very hard to listen to the buzz about Piyush Chawla’s selection for the Indian team that will play for the World Cup. After waiting for more than two years in the sidelines, when others such as fellow leg-spinner Amit Mishra and left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha travelled with India’s Test and ODI teams, the 23-year-old was picked for the Cup ostensibly because captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni wanted variety in his bowling attack.While there is still some time for the first ball to be bowled in the World Cup, Chawla’s showing in the final game of the South Africa tour at Centurion, where he was picked ahead of left-arm seamer Ashish Nehra, was anything but magical and did his cause no good. It only added to the growing debate over the Uttar Pradesh leg-spinner’s inclusion in the World Cup squad.Coming on the heels of some frenetic bidding for him in the IPL auction when he was retained by Kings XI Punjab for $900,000-the same price for a certain Adam Gilchrist and a good $100,000 more than Praveen Kumar and Abhishek Nayar-Chawla’s selection has sparked a variety of emotions, ranging from applause for the selectors to consternation. All of these will combine to put extra pressure on his young shoulders when he gets to the bowling crease in any of the World Cup games.He may find it heartening that former India captains like Ajit Wadekar and Dilip Vengsarkar have welcomed his selection as one that will give Dhoni an additional bowling option. Others are hedging, and some like Bishan Singh Bedi wonder what the selectors were really thinking, calling Chawla’s inclusion in the World Cup squad baffling.advertisement”I am amazed that they preferred the leg-spinner who now bowls with a chest-on action ahead of Ojha, whose left-arm spin would have been really handy,” says Bedi, adding, “I remember watching Piyush along with Erapalli (Prasanna) at the National Cricket Academy a few years ago and thinking that this was a lad with immense potential. But somewhere down the line he seems to have lost the edge that a match-winning leg-spinner should have.””I am amazed that they preferred the leg-spinner who now bowls with a chest-on action ahead of Pragyan Ojha, whose left-arm spin would have been really handy.”BISHAN SINGH BEDI Former Indian cricketerBedi is from the school of thought which believes it would have helped to pick an extra batsman like Rohit Sharma or even Manish Pandey in the squad.”That would give the team management some insurance against batting failures,” says Bedi. “With Yuvraj Singh bowling really well and looking good to bowl eight to 10 overs himself and others like Yusuf Pathan, Suresh Raina, Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag, I wonder if India will ever play two specialist spinners in a match. The team may end up having both R. Ashwin and Chawla in the reserves, even if Ashwin deserves to be looked at a first choice for the off-spinner’s place. If indeed, Dhoni and others in the team management believed that Chawla could make a significant contribution, they should have played him in each of the matches in South Africa so that he could get some match practice.”Chairman of selectors K. Srikkanth said that his panel factored in expectations that the pitches could be dry and spinner-friendly and Chawla was the most experienced spinner among the contenders. Dhoni is quick to rush to Chawla’s defence. “It is good to have Piyush in the side, as he provides that variety to the attack. He is one guy who can bat a bit. If we plan to play with five bowlers, he can be a handy No. 7 or No. 8 batsman,” says Dhoni.In the past two seasons, Chawla scored 1,086 runs averaging 36.20 in 23 First Class games in India and England. But the big question is: what has Chawla done in the shorter versions of the game to emerge as one of India’s most valuable fringe players? The leg-spinner has taken two wickets in three Twenty20 games for India. In the 50-over format, he has 28 wickets from 22 matches. Nothing much to write home about, his critics say.Critics of Chawla’s selection point out that Dhoni’s statement in Cape Town is a clear indication that the leg-spinner would come into the fray only if India thinks of playing five specialist bowlers. The last time Team India played with a full complement of bowlers was against Australia in the ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa in 2009. So what other reason can explain Chawla’s presence in the squad? He is Dhoni’s lucky mascot, says a former India player.”The captain believes that Chawla helped by being part of the squad that won the ICC World Twenty20 in South Africa in 2007. He also played in the two victorious finals against Australia in the Commonwealth Bank Series in March 2008,” he says.advertisementChawla’s selection may have baffled a few but his real challenge will begin when he gets to play a World Cup game and is given the task of rattling batsmen with his brand of leg-spin. Indeed, the ball is really in his court. After all, in his Aligarh home, he is called Paras, the stone whose touch turns everything to gold. Perhaps he can work some magic and ensure that the team realises the dreams of a billion Indians.last_img read more
