first_imgDONEGAL will play Mayo in the All-Ireland final as the men from the West saw off a startling Dublin comeback to win an incredible match at Croke Park.The Mayo men finally saw off the All-Ireland champions by 0-19 to 0-16 in today’s semi-final. The referee played an extra seven minutes of the match; two more than had been called as the Dubs went for goal.It was a pulsating game – and a sometimes violent match – as repeated Dublin fouls on Mayo players left one of them in hospital and another with blood pouring from a head wound.Mayo had gone in at half-time leading 0-12 to 0-06.And they stormed ahead in the second half, leading at one stage by ten points. But Dublin staged one of the great comebacks in front of 81,364 at Croke Park reducing the deficit to just three points.And then Bernard Brogan went for goal, only to see his shot saved brilliantly saved by Clarke.Within a minute O’Connor missed a sitter for Mayo – putting a goal chance wide.The Connacht champions held on to set up a first ever All-Ireland final clash with Donegal.TV pundit and 1993 All-Ireland winner Joe Brolly said the Mayo win was “a victory for Donegal” saying the Ulster Champions will fancy their chances in a final against Mayo rather than Dublin.Brolly – who will be at O’Donnell Park on September 14th – also poked fun at Pat Spillane after the game. The Kerry legend said that teams like Donegal and Mayo had been too nice in the past.“The Donegal fans weren’t too nice to you last week Spillane – and quite right too after what you said,” said the Derryman.DONEGAL TO PLAY MAYO IN FINAL AFTER DUBS BEATEN AT CROKER was last modified: September 2nd, 2012 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:DONEGAL TO PLAY MAYO IN FINAL AFTER DUBS BEATEN AT CROKERlast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Clements: Proposed changes to the Federal Milk Marketing Order by the American Farm Bureau Federation could mean more democracy and a more equitable program for all dairy farmers. John Newton, AFBF Chief Economist, says the working group of Farm Bureau members identified four priorities.Newton: All dairy farmers should have a voice and a vote on changes to milk pricing regulation, and that deals directly with the ability of co-ops to bloc vote. Farmers on the working group wanted to see improved risk sharing among farmers, cooperatives and their processors. The working group recommended improved price discovery for milk prices. And finally, some provisions to streamline and simplify the pricing and pooling provisions in the southeast U.S.Clements: Newton says several years of low milk prices prompted the effort.Newton: The voting delegates in January asked us to convene this working group following several years of low milk prices and some struggles in the marketing chain for dairy products. So, this working group was tasked to find a way to update and modernize these Federal Milk Marketing Orders so that dairy farmers and their co-ops and processors can be more successful in the future.Clements: Farm Bureau members will consider adding the recommendations to the Farm Bureau policy book during the 2020 AFBF Annual Convention & Trade Show in Austin, Texas.Newton: Now we need to do what we do best and that’s engage our grassroots members across the country, and go through that grassroots policy development process, ultimately culminating at our business session in January, we’ll have an opportunity to update Farm Bureau policy on federal orders.Clements: Micheal Clements, Washington.last_img read more

first_imgInzwischen sind drei Jahre vergangen, seit Moritz seine Mission begonnen hat. Auch 2019 wird es wieder ein Event im Bürener Land geben. Diesmal aber nicht in der Stadt, sondern etwas außerhalb direkt an der sehenswerten Wewelsburg. Fast 700 Geocacher haben ihr will attend bereits geloggt und dafür gesorgt, dass Moritz diesmal ein MEGA-Event veranstalten darf! Moritz war 13 Jahre alt und hatte noch keine 100 Geocaches gefunden, als er 2016 ein Projekt startete, das ihn bis heute beschäftigt. In seiner Heimatstadt Büren wollte er ein großes Geocaching-Event ausrichten! Er sah sich Event-Listings an, knüpfte erste Kontakte und traf bei der persönlichen Vorstellung in der Tourismus-Abteilung im Bürener Rathaus auf sehr positive Resonanz. Geocacher Gernot Schmeller (SchmelliDE) ist ein deutscher Geocaching-Blogger, der mit seinem Wohnmobil und Gleichgesinnten oft unterwegs ist, um kleine sowie große Events im In- und Ausland zu besuchen und dabei ausgiebig cachen zu gehen. Im August 2019 fährt er zum dritten Mal in Folge zum Event in Büren, wo ein junger Event-Organisator für Aufmerksamkeit sorgt. SchmelliDE stellt Euch Moritz und seine wichtigsten Begleiter vor: Warum findet Büren 2019 nicht wieder im Frühjahr statt? Ganz einfach: Der Moritz hat in diesem Sommer seinen Schulabschluss gemacht und musste sich erst einmal auf anderes konzentrieren! Jetzt hat er aber Zeit und wir freuen uns auf Europa in Büren 28-1 am 24. August 2019! Zwei Musiker mischten sich unter die Cacher und sorgten für Stimmung: Von Beginn an unterstützte ihn der als Geocacher, Autor und Shop-Betreiber bekannte Markus Gründel, der nicht nur vor Ort dabei war, sondern bereits bei der Vorbereitung im Hintergrund wertvolle Impulse einbrachte. Waren die Caches 2017 noch arm in der Zahl, schlecht ausgemessen und unspektakulär, gab es diesmal richtig schöne, exakt vermessene Dosen: Tolle Bastelarbeiten begeisterten die Cacher genauso, wie das Thema: Für alle Länder der EU gab es eine Dose mit dem dazu passenden Koch-Rezept. Das kam richtig gut an! Moritz mit SchmelliDE beim Project Märchenhaft in Kassel am Event-Stand Interessante Führungen auf der Burg und am Flughafen Paderborn-Lippstadt erwarten uns. Weitere bekannte Persönlichkeiten haben ihr Kommen angekündigt. So wird diesmal neben Lackey Chris aus Seattle auch Mario Kahn mit seinem bekannten LaserLogoShop in Büren zu Gast sein. Und zum Abschluss gibt es diesmal noch einen musikalischen Leckerbissen. Das Europa-Thema führte die Gäste durch Büren. Einen Cache gab es auch bei dem Schild zur Erinnerung an die Partnerstädte: Mit 232 Attended-Logs konnte Moritz die Besucherzahl innerhalb eines Jahres nahezu verdoppeln. Jetzt sollte es aber noch größer werden. Für die Ausgabe 2019 war Büren nicht nur beim Mega-Event in Kassel vertreten… Schon bei der Anreise 2018 in der Nacht war Büren anders. Ein großes Banner machte auf das Event aufmerksam: Europa in Büren 28-1 Moritz brachte es im ersten Anlauf auf bemerkenswerte 120 Attended-Logs. Die Stimmung bei der Tombola am Samstagabend in der Stadthalle war ausgezeichnet: …sondern es gibt auch das Cacher-Auto vom enthusiastischen Unterstützer Stephan, das Werbung macht… Als Location diente diesmal nicht wie zuvor die Stadthalle mit Eintrittsgebühr. Die Besucher feierten kostenlos im Innenhof des Rathauses von Büren – und das diesmal bei herrlichem Cacher-Wetter. center_img Inzwischen war auch nichts mehr von „mugglefrei“ zu hören. Das Motto lautete „Europa in Büren“ und hatte mit Euronice ein Maskottchen mit Wiedererkennungseffekt gefunden. Hier die Begrüßung 2018: In Büren lässt es sich wirklich schön cachen. Nur spielte bei der Premiere 2017 das Wetter nicht wirklich mit: Nicole, Markus, Moritz und Kerstin am Gründel-Stand beim ersten Event in Büren. Ich bin ganz bestimmt wieder dabei! Share with your Friends:More Mir ist bei meinem ersten Besuch in Büren aufgefallen, dass der damals noch sehr zurückhaltende junge Mann bei den Cachern sehr schnell beliebt war und für sein Engagement große Anerkennung fand. Anstatt aber erst einmal durchzuatmen und sich über den Erfolg zu freuen, fragte Moritz bereits beim Abschiedsfrühstück in einem Bürener Café am Sonntagmorgen die Besucher, was man bei einer Neuauflage besser machen könnte. Schon von Beginn an begleitet der Geocaching-Podcast aus dem Kreis Steinfurt das Event und hat großen Anteil daran, dass in den ersten beiden Jahren viele Steinfurter den Weg nach Büren gefunden haben. Hier die Podcaster beim Interview 2018 mit Kerstin vom Orga-Team: Aus Belgien fanden beliebte Rätsel-Dosen, die Birre TBs, den Weg nach Büren: Und das Geotemporale Institut war mit einem großen Info-Zelt vertreten: Anregungen und Verbesserungsvorschläge gab es reichlich. Moritz setzte sie mit seinem Team beherzt um und veranstaltete 2018 eine Neuauflage in einer Qualität, die man nicht für möglich gehalten hätte. Moritz plante, organisierte und am 22. April 2017 war es endlich soweit. Mit Kerstin als organisatorische Unterstützung aus dem Rathaus und ein paar Freunden startete er mit Mugglefrei an der Afte die Premiere seiner Event-Reihe. Interessante Gäste aus der deutschen Geocaching-Szene fanden den Weg nach Büren, zum Beispiel auch Susanne Fletemeyer, die den Geocaching-Roman „Finde mich!“ geschrieben hat: … und viele Eventbesuche folgten, wie hier beim Mega Brugse Beer im April 2019 in Belgien mit Lackey Audrey vom Geocaching HQ in Seattle. Büren ist eine historische Stadt in Nordrhein-Westfalen, die nicht nur einige Sehenswürdigkeiten und die Wewelsburg zu bieten hat, sondern auch in einer wunderschönen Wandergegend liegt. Das touristische Angebot und die Interessen der Geocacher lassen sich hier ideal verbinden.

first_imgNow 83 years old, Arthur Rosenfeld probably understands as well as anyone on the planet the consequences and opportunities inherent in our approach to energy use and conservation.Perhaps the best thing about Rosenfeld’s analyses of the costs, benefits, and potential drawbacks to increasing energy efficiency is that most of them yielded recommendations that were relatively easy to follow and produced remarkable results. Turn off the lights when you leave the room. Shut down appliances when you’re not using them. Build energy efficient buildings and cover their exteriors (especially roofs) with light-colored material. Design appliances to operate more efficiently.In California, where Rosenfeld served on the California Energy Commission, the state’s principal energy planning and policy agency, energy conservation mandates have helped keep per-capita energy consumption flat for the past 30 years. The implementation of these mandates was, of course, incremental and often slowed by businesses and citizens interested in maintaining the status quo, but ultimately the state found itself using less electricity and petroleum-based fuel – and saving on energy costs – by applying remedies that required fairly straightforward changes in behavior or design philosophy. That, as Rosenfeld emphasized time and again during his long tenure with the commission, is cheaper and more ecologically beneficial than building more power plants.Battling profligacyRosenfeld, who recently retired from the commission, comes from an academic background that emphasizes the theoretical as much as the practical. As a recent Los Angeles Times profile points out, he studied particle physics (under Enrico Fermi) at the University of Chicago for his doctorate, but discovered his true calling in the early 1970s during the Arab oil embargo, when he realized the most expedient way to prevent or offset similar crises was to push policies that would reduce energy waste and increase energy efficiency.Rosenfeld and his colleagues backed up their recommendations with solid research – more than enough to help generate many of the initiatives that have made California a global leader in energy conservation and in energy efficient construction. Fortunately, too, Rosenfeld is adept at deploying a couple secret weapons when facing skeptics: his knack for self-effacement and elegant explanations that, as the Times notes, make “science understandable to people who couldn’t screw in a light bulb.”If you haven’t already seen the profile, consider checking it out. It’s a fitting tribute to a man who has done a lot to lead us down the green path.last_img read more

first_imgColor correction tools like DaVinci Resolve are more affordable and accessible than ever, but working with color takes more than just the right software. Here are three tips for building a color correction suite that will improve your output.Top image via Digital ProductionMuch like editing bays, color correction suites come in all shapes and sizes. On the top level, a color room at a high-end facility might have hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of equipment in it, while an at-home setup will naturally be more modest. With that said, just because you might be working from home or from a small facility doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t follow the same principles as the larger color suites.You may not need a $30,000 color board or a 4K projector, but what you do need are a number of basic components that will make or break the quality of your work. Let’s take a look at three of the most important aspects of any color suite.1. Light ControlImage of The Vanity VFX color grading station in Toronto via BTL News If you come from an offline editing background, then you might be used to editing on your laptop on set, in a coffee shop, at the kitchen table, or anywhere else you can find space to set up shop. Unfortunately, things aren’t as simple when working with color, as ambient room light can pose big challenges when handling color work.Imagine attempting to color correct a photo on your iPhone in a dark room. Now imagine trying to color the same photo on your iPhone in broad daylight. Obviously you’ll have a much tougher time working outside, since the glare from the sun makes a perfectly clear view of your screen nearly impossible. The same principle applies inside your color room.Any little bit of light that seeps into your room through a window, door, or elsewhere will negatively impact your color session. Not only does ambient light make it more difficult to view your monitor properly, but it’s inconsistent nature will also throw off your results. For instance, you might start your session in the morning while the sun isn’t yet overhead — but by noon, it’s shining straight through the window. Whether you realize it or not, you’ll be compensating for this extra light in the room by making color adjustments in your footage.For these reasons and more, the first thing you need to do when setting up your color suite is control the light. Buy blackout blinds and install them on every window in your suite to block any and all uncontrolled light. With the house lights off, your room should be pitch black inside, so make whatever changes you need to ensure that your space achieves this.2. Room ColorImage via the Toast AgencyAmbient light isn’t the only variable that can affect your ability to see color objectively — the colors in your room can pose just as many challenges.If you’ve ever worked in a professional color suite, you know that almost all of them have walls that are painted grey. The reason for this is quite simple: if your room is any color other than a neutral grey, your eyes will adjust to the ambient color of the room. Therefore, you’ll be making inaccurate judgements when it comes to coloring your footage.Think of what happens when you wear blue sunglasses for more than a few minutes and then take them off — everything now appears yellow, or warm. This is because your eyes have an ability to “white balance,” so to speak, and this phenomenon can occur just as obviously when you’re inside your color suite.If you were to attempt to color a project in a room that’s painted a bright vivid color (let’s say cherry red), there’s no question that your images would all have a very distinct color cast to them. Your eyes would adjust to the red in the room pretty quickly. In an unconscious attempt to balance the color of the image to your eyes, you’d be inadvertently adding more red to your images than called for.So, if you plan on doing professional color work, be sure to paint your room neutral grey to avoid headaches and technical issues with your projects. It’s also ideal to use light fixtures that have a color temperature of 6500K for greater consistency and accuracy.3. Calibrated MonitorEven if your room is light controlled and painted neutral grey, you aren’t quite out of the woods yet. The other huge variable to consider when working on color projects your monitoring system set up — more specifically, how it’s calibrated.Regular computer monitors are not designed for critical color work. Some monitors are warmer than others, some have too much contrast, others are oversaturated, and so on. The bottom line is that a $150 monitor from Best Buy is never going to display colors to meet a professional standard, and attempting to use monitors like this to color with is ill-advised.If you’re serious about color, you really need to invest in a proper broadcast monitor that can take an SDI video signal and be calibrated professionally. You may not need to invest in a color board right away, or a huge office space to work in, but investing in a monitor is an absolute must. In many ways, your monitor is the heart of your color operation — so if there’s one area you’re going to want to invest your money, it’s here.Interested in learning more about color grading?

first_img Comment Share your voice 1 A gunman in New Zealand livestreamed his attack on two mosques in March.  NurPhoto/Getty Alleged Christchurch gunman Brenton Tarrant will no longer be allowed to send and receive mail after a letter he wrote while in jail was posted this week to 4chan, one of many imageboards that have become destinations for people espousing hateful and extremist views. Tarrant is accused of killing 51 people at two mosques in New Zealand this March, in an attack that was streamed on Facebook Live. New Zealand Corrections chief Christine Stevenson apologized on Wednesday and said Tarrant “will not be able to send or receive any mail until we have absolute assurance that the process in place for screening and assessing his correspondence upholds the safety of the public, both in New Zealand and internationally.”Stevenson added, “It is a fine balance to uphold our lawful obligations and mitigate all potential risks posed by the prisoner, however we are absolutely committed to ensuring that he has no opportunity to cause harm or distress, either directly or indirectly.”A six-page handwritten letter that appears to be from Tarrant was posted by an anonymous user on 4chan this week. The letter, dated July 4, appears to have been sent to someone in Russia.Imageboards, which long been dark backwaters of the internet, have become the focus of public attention in the wake of a spate of hate-motivated killings. A man who allegedly killed 22 people in an El Paso, Texas, Walmart is believed to have posted a racist manifesto to 8chan, another imageboard, just before the attack. Tarrant was linked to an 87-page white nationalist screed that also appeared on 8chan. 8chan has since been taken offline and its owner, Jim Watkins, has been requested to testify before Congress.The letter marks the second time this week that 4chan has grabbed headlines. A post on Saturday appeared to provide details of Jeffrey Epstein’s death before the first news reports of the disgraced financier’s suspected suicide. The 4chan post was published more than a half hour before the initial news reports that Epstein, who was held on charges of sex trafficking, was dead.4chan administrators didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.Originally published Aug. 14, 11:08 a.m. PT.Update, 12:47 p.m.: Adds additional comment from New Zealand corrections chief.   Now playing: Watch this: 3:25 Why AT&T blocked 4Chan Internet Tagslast_img read more

The forensic tent, covering the bench where Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found, is repositioned by officials in protective suits in the centre of Salisbury, Britain, March 8, 2018ReutersThe US imposed its second round of sanctions on Russia over the poisoning of spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia Skripal in the United Kingdom in 2018.The sanctions were imposed under the Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act of 1991 (CBW Act). “The United States is announcing the second round of sanctions on Russia for its use of a “novichok” nerve agent in an attempt to assassinate Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia Skripal in the United Kingdom on March 4, 2018,” US State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said in a statement released on Saturday.The sanctions include US opposition “to the extension of any loan or financial or technical assistance” to Russia by international financial institutions such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). It also imposes export licensing restrictions on Department of Commerce-controlled goods and technology.The sanctions will come into effect following a 15-day congressional notification period – around August 15 – and will remain in place for a minimum of 12 months, the statement read.Nerve agent poisoningThe US government had initially imposed sanctions on Russia in 2018 after Russian spy Sergei Skripals and double agent for the US was exposed to a nerve agent.The sanctions included restrictions on arms sales and exports of critical goods as well as the termination of US assistance in Russia. The recent sanctions echo the previous one and details that the act endangered “thousands of lives in Salisbury and Amesbury and caused the hospitalisation of the Skripals, a British police officer and two civilians, one of whom subsequently died from her exposure.” IBTimes VideoRelated VideosMore videos Play VideoPauseMute0:01/1:05Loaded: 0%0:01Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVE-1:04?Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedSubtitlessubtitles settings, opens subtitles settings dialogsubtitles off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
