Businessman vows to reopen after blaze destroys clothing stock

first_imgThe owner of one of Letterkenny’s best-known businesses has vowed to reopen after his shop was severely damaged by last night’s mystery fire in the heart of the town.Leonard Watson of Watson’s Menswear told Donegal Daily he was left gutted when he arrived at his shop early this morning.A fire in a car park at the rear of the premises on the Main Street had sent smoke billowing through the building destroying thousands of euro of stock. Leonard revealed that he had just stocked his store with Christmas stock which must now be destroyed.“I’m gutted to be honest as we had the Christmas stock in.“When I arrived at the shop and opened the doors I was just met with a wall of thick, black smoke. There is no huge physical damage to the shop but the smoke damage is very serious,” he said.Five employees at the store have also been left shocked by the fire with Christmas coming down the line. The adjoining business, O’Hehir’s Bakery, also suffered smoke damage as a result of the fire.Leonard said his business will have to close for a number of days but he is hoping to reopen as soon as possible.“Everything is up in the air at the moment but we will reopen as soon as possible. We will remain on the Main Street and get stuck in to getting the shop reopen again,” declared Leonard.An Garda Siochana including forensic officers and Insp Goretti Sheridan, who is leading the investigation, at the scene where 9 cars were destroyed in Letterkenny.

Water burst leaves residents without supply yet again in Falcarragh

first_imgHundreds of householders and business owners in and around Falcarragh are without water again following a burst pipe in the Rocktown area. Irish Water are currently at the scene addressing the issue.It is expected that the normal supply will return around 5pm on Saturday. Earlier this month Irish Water held a constructive meeting with elected officials from the Gortahork and Falcarragh area to discuss the utility’s plans to replace two sections of water pipes that are prone to frequent bursts.Councillors were told that Irish Water is committed to delivering water improvement works in Falcarragh and financial approval has been given to progress this through the National Leakage Reduction Programme.Roisin Gallagher, the owner of Roisin’s Beauty Bar, said her business couldn’t afford to wait till October for new pipes to be installed.” (It was a) booked out day with communions and weddings and we will lose a full day again due to the neglect we are receiving from Irish water. “We can’t afford to wait until autumn for this new system with how frequent we are losing water.“We can’t deal with the stress of going through a full busy summer losing days and disappointing customers.”Another business owner said Irish Water were failing the people in the Cloughaneely area.Batch Donegal said on Facebook: ‘This issue is way to frequent and is putting businesses in this town under serious pressure.‘We are losing hundred’s if not thousand’s of euro each time this happens and we are not receiving any compensation or support whatsoever. ‘Irish Water give no warnings of outages and we have to wait until our taps run dry to know that we will be without water.‘By the time this happens we have food baked and prepared for the day and most of this then has to be discarded. They have been of no help any time I have been on the phone to them.‘I have left numerous requests for a callback and sent many emails to which I have got no reply.

The legacy of Albert Luthuli

first_imgANC president from 1952 to 1967, and winner of the 1960 Nobel Peace Prize, Chief Albert Luthuli was the most respected African leader of his era. The Albert Luthuli Legacy Project keeps the story of Luthuli – and the millions of people he represented – alive for a generation of South Africans born into freedom.‘No true peace and progress can be secured in any country as long as there are others in that country denied full democratic rights and duties’ – Chief Albert John Luthuli (Photo: Wikipedia)Brand South Africa reporterPresident-General of the African National Congress from December 1952 until his death in 1967, and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1960, Chief Albert John Luthuli was the most widely known and respected African leader of his era.Luthuli’s home in Stanger, KwaZulu-Natal, a meeting place for people linked to South Africa’s freedom struggle during the years of Luthuli’s banishment, was proclaimed a museum in August 2004.The opening marked the completion of the government-driven Albert Luthuli Legacy Project, which included the launch of an annual memorial lecture, and the unveiling of a bronze statue of Luthuli at the KwaDukuza Municipal Chambers, and of a memorial at the Groutville Congregational Church where Luthuli’s grave is located.The house that is now the Chief Albert Luthuli Museum was under constant police surveillance when Luthuli lived there.Although Luthuli had been banished to his home by the apartheid government, many people travelled there to seek his counsel – among them United States attorney-general Senator Robert Kennedy, who arrived by helicopter for an unofficial visit in 1966.The Order of Luthuli is South Africa’s highest award for contributions to democracy, human rights, justice and peace. See: South Africa’s national orders.Luthuli and his guest held a private discussion on a wooden bench that is still positioned under a tree outside the museum. The two men discussed the ANC’s vision of a united South Africa, and before leaving Kennedy gave the ANC leader a portable record player and recordings of speeches made by his brother, former US president JF Kennedy.The ventilation shafts running beneath the floorboards were once used to conceal documents. According to the Arts and Culture Department, during restoration work on the building, workers uncovered a number of papers dating from that historic era.A latecomer to politicsAccording to SA History Online, Luthuli – who preferred his Zulu name Mvumbi (“Continuous Rain”) to his Christian names Albert John – was a latecomer to politics, nearly 50 when he first assumed national political office.Born near Bulawayo in what was then Rhodesia (and is now Zimbabwe) in 1898, Luthuli was sent back to his family’s home at Groutville mission station in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa in 1908.After completing a teaching course at Edendale near Pietermaritzburg, Luthuli took up the running of a small primary school in the Natal uplands. At around the same time, he was confirmed in the Methodist Church and became a lay preacher.The language of the Bible and Christian principles “profoundly affected his political style and beliefs for the rest of his life”, SA History Online states in its biography.In 1920 Luthuli studied further, then took up a teaching post, at Adams College. In 1935 he agreed to accept the chieftaincy of Groutville reserve, and returned home to become an administrator of local tribal affairs for the next 17 years.Luthuli’s public support for the 1952 Defiance Campaign finally brought him into direct conflict with the South African government, who demanded he resign from the ANC and dismissed him from his post as chief when he refused to do so.In response, Luthuli issued “The Road to Freedom is via the Cross”, in which he condemned apartheid as degrading to all who are party to it and expressed both his belief in non-violence and an optimism that whites would sooner or later accept a shared society.“The notoriety gained by his dismissal, his eloquence, his unimpeachable character, and his demonstrated loyalty to the ANC all made Luthuli a natural candidate to succeed ANC President James Moroka”, SA History Online states in its biography.Luthuli was elected ANC president-general by a large majority in December 1952, winning re-election in 1955 and 1958.“Bans imposed in early 1953 and renewed in the following year prevented him from giving direction to the day-to-day activities of Congress”, SA History Online states, “but as a country-bred ‘man of the people’, combining the most inspiring qualities of Christian and traditional leadership, he provided a powerful symbol for an organisation struggling to rally mass support.”Between the end of 1957 and May 1959, during a lapse in restrictions on his movements, Luthuli made a number of highly publicised addresses to whites and mixed audiences, his polished speeches and balanced appeals for reason in race relations earning him the praise of many white South Africans.Six days after the Sharpeville emergency in 1960, Luthuli sought to rally Africans to resistance by publicly burning his pass in Pretoria and calling for a national day of mourning. On 30 March he was detained and held until August, when he was tried and given a six-month suspended sentence.‘How easy it would have been to hate’Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1960, Luthuli was allowed to travel to Oslo to receive the award the following year.In his acceptance speech on 10 December 1961, Luthuli said: “It can only be on behalf of the people of South Africa, all the people of South Africa, especially the freedom-loving people, that I accept this award, that I acknowledge this honour. I accept it also as an honour not only to South Africa, but for the whole continent of Africa …“Quite long ago my forefathers extended a hand of friendship to people of Europe when they came to that continent. What has happened to the extension of that hand only history can say, and it is not time to speak about that here, but I would like to say, as I receive this prize of peace, that the hand of Africa was extended. It was a hand of friendship, if you read history.”In his Nobel lecture, delivered at the University of Oslo on the following day, Luthuli said: “How easy it would have been in South Africa for the natural feelings of resentment at white domination to have been turned into feelings of hatred and a desire for revenge against the white community.“Here, where every day, in every aspect of life every nonwhite comes up against the ubiquitous sign ‘Europeans Only’ and the equally ubiquitous policeman to enforce it – here it could well be expected that a racialism equal to that of their oppressors would flourish to counter the white arrogance toward blacks.“That it has not done so is no accident. It is because, deliberately and advisedly, African leadership for the past fifty years, with the inspiration of the African National Congress, which I had the honour to lead for the last decade or so until it was banned, had set itself steadfastly against racial vaingloriousness.“We know that in so doing we passed up opportunities for an easy demagogic appeal to the natural passions of a people denied freedom and liberty; we discarded the chance of an easy and expedient emotional appeal.“Our vision has always been that of a nonracial, democratic South Africa which upholds the rights of all who live in our country to remain there as full citizens, with equal rights and responsibilities with all others. For the consummation of this ideal we have laboured unflinchingly. We shall continue to labour unflinchingly.”At the end of his lecture, after much applause, Luthuli sang the African anthem, Nkosi sikelel’ iAfrika.On 21 July 1967, while taking a walk near his Natal home, Luthuli was killed, reportedly when he was struck by a train.Source: SA History OnlineWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Is the AJA CION the Biggest Bust in Modern Filmmaking?

first_imgWe had high hopes for the AJA CION – but it seems like the camera might flare out before it even gets started. Let’s take a look a the CION situation.Top Image Courtesy of Film and Digital Times.If you’ve been following us here at PremiumBeat you might recall the NAB 2014 post we wrote about the AJA CION. If you don’t remember the article, well, it basically said that we were excited to get our hands on the camera. In 2014 things were looking good for Cion, but the camera quickly ran into problems. Namely, it wasn’t released on time. While it’s not uncommon for a camera to be delayed, the Cion was released almost 6 months late on December 22 2014, to the dismay of all those who pre-ordered.It was only a 3 months later at NAB 2015 that Blackmagic announced updates to the URSA, and then introduced us to the URSA Mini. Suddenly things seemed bleak for the CION. So, while at NAB 2015, AJA decided to lend the CION to filmmakers, as a way to show professionals what the camera could do. AJA President Nick Rashby said in a statement:AJA is known for its generosity to customers with our support, return, and warranty programs, and as a private, diverse company we can make bold moves to show the community that we’re very committed to the professional camera market. We’ve invested heavily in building out a special try-and-buy loaner pool of CION cameras that we’re making available so that any interested shooters can experience this camera and the incredible film-like beauty of these images for themselves before committing to a purchase.This move was seen by many as a move of desperation, almost as if they couldn’t give the CION away in light of low sales numbers. However, when you actually sit down with the camera and look at what all it can do, you come away impressed — and before NAB 2015 the $9000 price point seemed reasonable. But again, Blackmagic dropped the URSA update and the URSA Mini.Now you can buy a 4.6K camera with 15 stops of dynamic range for $5000 and a standard 4K Mini that utilizes 12 stops of dynamic range, the same as the CION, for $3000. In order to compete with this, AJA announced their “Summer of Savings” promotion which cuts the CION price nearly in half, down to $5000. But is it enough? Only time and sales will answer that question. And to be honest, AJA may be extremely limited on time.The Dynamic Range ProblemCinema5D did a comprehensive overview of the CION which shows us the ins and outs of the camera. They also made the discovery that while the camera is listed to have 12 stops of dynamic range, it actually measures out at 8.2. Even if the dynamic range measurement of the URSA fell short, it would still be around 11 stops.With all of the doom and gloom, it hasn’t stopped directors and cinematographers like TJ Derry from using it on pro-level commercials. And we have to say, the image quality does look great, but is it worthy of dropping $2000 more on a camera, or even paying the same price for a 4.6K URSA Mini?ConclusionSo, the original question was: Is the AJA CION the biggest bust in modern filmmaking? It has the potential to be if AJA can’t right the ship and garner strong sales. But I’m not calling it yet, as others have. I say this because there are filmmakers out there who have used it and love it. Had the camera been released earlier it may have had a little stronger footing and an install base to really compete. But then again, given what they are having to compete against, going toe-to-toe with Blackmagic is easier said than done.Want more up to date news and cameras and gear?

first_imgJames: Romero has improved Man Utd teammate De Geaby Freddie Taylor8 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveDavid James says Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero’s foot skills have improved David De Gea.The Argentine will replace De Gea for Sunday’s clash with Liverpool after the 28-year-old went down with an injury in Spain’s draw with Sweden.And former England goalkeeper James believes Romero, who joined United in 2016, has helped De Gea increase his proficiency in playing out from the back.”I’ve analysed him and there are a few ‘keepers who are highly-rated who just put the ball out there in a general area. But he’s as good as Ederson and Alisson using his left foot and right foot,” James told Goal.”David de Gea is, of course, the number one, but I looked at Romero when Manchester United bought him and I was amazed at how good the guy is with his feet – then I saw an improvement in De Gea.”What you tend to find is when you’ve got two ‘keepers or two players training with each other day in, day out, you start picking up positive habits from the other player.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Province and ICBC announce increased treatment for people injured in motor vehicle

first_imgVANCOUVER, B.C. – The B.C. government and ICBC announce new regulations for the treatment of people injured in motor vehicle accidents.The province says these changes create a care-based car insurance system in B.C. that will provide increased care. New regulations, coming into effect April 1, 2019, will increase ICBC accident benefits for anyone injured in a crash regardless of fault. Customers will also have access to an expanded list of treatment providers, and updated treatment fees.Christine Bradstock, CEO for PABC says this announcement is positive news. “Working together with ICBC, we see this announcement as positive news for people injured in a motor vehicle accident, as they will have access to enhanced physiotherapy coverage. This is also excellent news for physiotherapists that treat ICBC patients as it allows for early intervention and increased treatment time for patients.”The regulations include updated treatment fees and types of treatments covered by ICBC for both new and existing claims. They also define a minor injury as it relates to payouts for pain and suffering, building on the legislated definition.Treatment protocol guidelines for examination, assessment, diagnosis and treatment of minor injuries to provide more consistent care for people injured in a crash are also included in these changes.For more information on this announcement, you can visit http://www.bcphysio.org/last_img read more
