We can win with Gayle – Patriots fans confident after Jamaican’s arrival

first_imgKittian journalist Loshaun Dixon says that fans of the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots believe their team can win next season’s Hero Caribbean Premier League Twenty20 cricket competition following the addition of star batsman Chris Gayle. Gayle’s shocking move from the Jamaica Tallawahs was announced by the St Kitts and Nevis franchise on Thursday, with the Jamaican leaving a team that won the title twice in the competition’s four years, for a club that struggled in its first two seasons. The move has left many wondering about the reasons behind it, with some speculation that it may be that Gayle has been offered a higher salary than he earned at the Tallawahs, despite the Tallawahs saying that his decision was for what he calls personal reasons. However, Dixon, a writer for the St Kitts and Nevis Observer, says that Gayle may have made the switch because of his partner. “He has a link to St Kitts and Nevis,” Dixon says. “This is where his partner is from.” He says that Gayle may also have made the move to keep himself motivated and says that fans are pleased to have one of their favourite players from the league, as a whole, playing his home games at Warner Park in Basseterre. “He is a fan favourite here; even in a Tallawahs uniform, people always turned up to see him,” Dixon says. “There are actually fans of the Tallawahs here, because of him. “He’s a big name; he’s a household name here. He, being in a Patriots shirt, will obviously cause a big stir among Kittians and Nevisians.” Fans are hoping that Gayle’s arrival may mean a return for his West Indies teammate and fellow Jamaican Marlon Samuels. But Dixon says that the team board has not yet said anything about a possible return for their former captain.last_img read more

LYIT LECTURER USES ROBOTS IN SUCCESSFUL AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMME

first_imgfe (left) Eibhlin Doherty Crana College, Buncrana working on their project in the after -schools “Mobile Robot programme” developed by LYIT Lecturer Martin Bradley.Encouraging young people to build and program their own robots has proved to be a big hit with school children in Donegal. Martin Bradley, a lecturer in the electronic engineering department at Letterkenny Institute of Technology (LYIT), pioneered an after-school robotics programme to help encourage students to become inspired by engineering.The Mobile Robot programme was first introduced in December 2011 at Crana College with Sean McFadden, an engineering teacher at the school. The programme taught young students how to program a light-following robot and older students how to build and program it. “I felt if we could engage young students in engineering in a practical way it would make the subject enjoyable and accessible. Robots seemed to me to be an imaginative way to get the students’ attention,” explains Martin. He had previously introduced robot building and programming into the “Introduction to Electronic Engineering” module at LYIT. Major US Multinational Texas Instruments, whose microcontroller is the brain of the robot are very excited and have published an article about the programme “ The Luck of the Launchpad in Ireland” on their website.What started out as a pilot sparked such huge interest amongst the students that Martin decided to expand it. The Mobile Robot Programme has been rolled out to 8 other schools and will be available to the general public in Inishowen this summer through a “Technology Club” which is to be set up in the new Sliabh Sneacht Centre in Drumfries.The success encouraged Martin to broaden the curriculum to teach students how to build and program seven different types of robots. The LYIT lecturer has posted a video on YouTube that showcases the various robots that have been created such as , light-following robot, Android app remote control, noise-following robot, line-following robot, tilt control using an Android app, voice-controlled robot and Play-Doh controlled robot. Have a look http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqeEKaEtx-c. Sean Deehan, a student at Crana College, says he got a lot from Mobile Robots, “I enjoyed learning about the chips in the robots. It’s interesting to see how this links to real life applications. It was brilliant making and controlling the robot.”Liam Galbraith, Principal at Crana College, adds, “It was great to see students engrossed in something that obviously captivated them. This will benefit these students a great deal.”The impact of the programme didn’t go unnoticed. In May 2013, Crana College received the Science, Technology, Education, Arts and Math (STEAM) Awards at the Donegal Vocational Education Committee awards ceremony. Last Year, four students from Crana College showcased their robots on the Institutes of Technology Ireland (IOTI) stand at the BT Young Scientist exhibition in Dublin.What’s next? Bradley hopes to integrate Texas Instruments SimpleLink™CC3000 Wi-Fi and CC1101 Sub-1 GHz connectivity modules on future robots and expand into the new Junior Certificate programs across Ireland.“A synergy has resulted from this and I believe the impact on the local economy will be seen in the future. I’d like to thank all of the people who help run the Mobile Robot programme and the students who participate. They keep us on our toes.” Bradley said.The Mobile Robot programme has since moved to other secondary schools such as Magh Ene College Bundoran, Carndonagh Community School and Scoil Mhuire Buncrana. Primary schools Scoil Cholmcille Newtoncunningham, Scoil Iosagain Buncrana, St Mary’s National School Malin Head and Scoil Naomh Padraig Drumfries have also been introduced to the programme.

ANGER AT LOYALISTS’ DONEGAL PROTEST

first_imgNORTHERN protestant youths walked out of a Donegal dinner event because of the presence of a Sinn Fein member – even though a former loyalist paramilitary helped organise the event!And even a former garda PJ Hallinan says he was perplexed at the actions of the youths who had just completed a successful cross-Border workshop looking at the world wars.The walk-out happened at the Inishowen Gateway Hotel – and their representatives later told the News Letter that they walked out because Derry Sinn Fein MLA Martina Anderson had made “an IRA speech.” But PJ Hallinan dismissed the idea that there had been an IRA speech and appeared completely perplexed as to why anyone could have objected to the content of the speech.“There was nothing in what Martina Anderson said that anyone could have taken exception to,” he said.Around 140 young people were attending the dinner on Saturday night in Buncrana when Mrs Anderson delivered a speech, described by one participant as “glorifying” the IRA’s role in the Troubles.Now it has emerged that no such “IRA speech” took place – and the walk-out was organised in response to a row in Belfast where the Sinn Fein Lord Mayor had refused to give an award to a British Army cadet. The Inishowen Development Partnership said the initiative was about looking at “Ireland’s experience in World War One, and the brotherhood that arose between Irishmen on the Western Front to forge new relationships and new hope for our common future”.In a statement, a Sinn Fein spokesman confirmed Ms Anderson’s attendance at the event, saying she had “recalled her experiences of the conflict” – including her period in prison – and talked about communities emerging from conflict and “the need for understanding of others’ experiences”.He added: “Unionist/loyalist groups need to realise that if they are going to participate in these cross-community projects they are going to hear opinions and accounts of the conflict that they may not like or agree with.“But if they expect to hear republicans apologise for their past or to stop being republicans then they are going to be disappointed.“Unfortunately, rather than be mature about what they heard and participate in debate this group decided to leave the event. “This is unfortunate as Martina would have relished the debate.”© 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.comANGER AT LOYALISTS’ DONEGAL PROTEST was last modified: December 8th, 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:buncranainishowen gatewayIRAloyalistsrowSinn Feinlast_img read more

Quantas orders boost Boeing

first_img Airbus spokesman David Voskuhl expressed disappointment with the Qantas decision but said the “flagship of their fleet” would be the A380 superjumbo. “We respect the airline’s decision,” Voskuhl said. “We would certainly have liked to win, but they have decided in favor of the 787 and we would certainly not criticize that.” The Airbus A350, a planned long-range competitor to the Dreamliner, is set to enter service in 2010, two years after the Boeing plane. Neither Qantas nor the rival aircraft makers indicated whether delivery schedules were an important factor in the decision. The new plane orders announced Wednesday come on top of a multibillion dollar deal to buy 12 new Airbus A380 superjumbo planes – the world’s largest passenger jet. Qantas will begin taking delivery of the A380s early in 2007. Qantas chairwoman Margaret Jackson said the airline would fund the Boeing 787 purchases from the company’s operating cash flow. “This fleet plan will give us a modern fleet offering maximum flexibility, lower seat mile costs and greater fuel efficiency,” Jackson said in a statement. Investors approved of the announcement, sending Qantas stock soaring 3.2 percent to close at $3.87 Australian dollar ($2.91). The announcement signals that Qantas will not begin flying nonstop between Sydney and destinations like London. The company had talked to both Boeing and Airbus about buying planes capable of making the flight without a refueling stop. Qantas said it had sought tenders from Airbus and Boeing for ultra-long range variants of the Airbus A340 and Boeing 777 as part of its current fleet renewal plan. “However, neither the B777 nor the A340 provide an economical solution to our desire to have some of our services overfly midpoint hubs,” Dixon said. “We will continue to talk to Airbus and Boeing on further developing the options for longer-range aircraft,” he added. Last week, Qantas announced its domestic budget carrier, Jetstar, would begin international flights by early 2007. The company said Wednesday some of the newly ordered 787s would go to the Jetstar fleet and others to Qantas. Initially, Jetstar will fly four A330-200 planes internationally until it takes delivery of new 787s. Dixon said the new carrier later would expand to fly to Europe and other regions around the world. According to its Web site, Qantas currently operates a fleet of 201 aircraft, comprising Boeing 747s, 767s, 737s and 717s, Airbus A330s and A320s, Bombardier Dash 8s and British Aerospace 146s. The company flew 32.7 million passengers in the year to June 30, 9.4 million of them on international routes.

SYDNEY, Australia – Australia’s flagship carrier Qantas said Wednesday it could order up to 115 new Boeing Co. Dreamliners in a deal that may net Boeing at least $14.4 billion and help it land a heavy blow in its battle with rival Airbus. Qantas said it has placed firm orders for 65 new Boeing 787 passenger jets and has secured rights to buy another 50 of the so-called Dreamliners to cope with future growth. In a statement, Chicago-based Boeing said the aviation company and Qantas were finalizing an agreement that will include orders for 45 Dreamliners, with 20 options plus purchase rights for an additional 50 airplanes as Qantas moves to renew its fleet. Boeing lists the price for the 787 on its Web site as $125 million to $135 million, but airlines frequently negotiate discounts. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake The deal means that Boeing pulls far ahead in its quest this year to sell more aircraft than its archrival Airbus, which also had been lobbying Qantas to buy its planes. As of the end of November, Boeing had won 800 orders – not including the Qantas order – more than any year in nearly two decades, and more than the previous three years combined. Airbus sold 687 planes during the same period – up from 370 in 2004. Boeing shares rose 71 cents, or 1 percent, to $71.30 in pre-market trading. Boeing said the deal with Qantas was an important development with a key customer for the aviation company. “They are obviously one of the premier airlines in the world and obviously have been a very good customer for Boeing and have operated a number of our aircraft,” Boeing spokesman Peter Conte in Seattle said. “This is a very, very big commitment by Qantas to growth,” Qantas Airways Ltd. Chief Executive Geoff Dixon told reporters. last_img read more

Glenties to be lit up with memories of loved ones this Christmas

first_imgThe town of Glenties has come up with a beautiful way of remembering lost loved ones this Christmas.The current lights have been illuminating the town during the festive season for the past 17 years.But with the need to replace the lights, the town’s Development Group face a cost of more than €10,000. The committee, under chairperson Brian Carr, has come up with a touching scheme to sponsor 1,000 new bulbs to light up the town.Each bulb can be purchased for €3 each and the name of each lost loved one can be written on each bulb.The bulbs are for sale in shops around the town and are selling really well and will remain on sale until November 30th.The balance of the €10,000 will be made up by donations. The switch on will take place on Sunday 4th of December and we will have a remembrance service on the Main Street and of course Santa and friends will also be there.Chairperson Brian Carr “People think it’s a really good idea and it is a nice way of not just funding our new lights but also of remembering all our loved ones who have passed away.”Glenties to be lit up with memories of loved ones this Christmas was last modified: November 15th, 2016 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)last_img read more

Amphibians yield new parasite species

first_imgProfessor Louis du Preez from North-West University has discovered five new parasite species in the rain forests of French Guiana in South America. The worm-like caecilian in which the rare polystome was found. A microscopic image of a polystome. The 120-kilometre journey upstream on the Approuague River was undertaken in a banana boat. All equipment had to be taken with and because it rained every day, everything had to be covered.(Images: North-West University)MEDIA CONTACTS• Prof Louis du Preez North-West University+27 18 299 2372Wilma den HartighA renowned South African researcher has discovered five new parasite species – considered by many scientists to be nigh impossible to find – in the rain forests of French Guiana in South America.Professor Louis du Preez from North-West University (NWU), who is an expert on flatworm parasites that live in amphibians and fresh water turtles, didn’t know that his research mission to the remote South American forests would yield such a remarkable find.Du Preez says the parasite species were found in a caecilian, a legless earthworm-like amphibian, in turtles and in a frog.“We knew beforehand that chances of finding this caecilian were slim, and those of finding the parasite in one even slimmer,” he says.“Our best scenario was to get one, and we got five.”Answering questions about amphibiansHe says although the discovery is not of veterinary or economic importance, it will help researchers to answer important evolutionary questions about amphibians and their geographical location.“Now that we have the DNA of the parasite we can find out how its hosts evolved,” he says. “Amphibians were around long before dinosaurs, yet they survived when dinosaurs became extinct.”Du Preez, who is also an authority on frogs, says it is important to research these amphibians as their survival is critical for a healthy ecosystem.Frogs are the most threatened vertebrate group in the world because of habitat destruction and the threat of disease and fungi.“Frogs are important because they eat vast quantities of potentially harmful insects and serve as staple food for some birds and reptiles. Wherever frog numbers are in decline, there is a disruption in the ecosystem.”An unusual research tripDu Preez’s search for the parasites started when the National Museum of Scotland contacted him about a parasite they discovered in a caecilian which had been preserved in a bottle of formalin for 120 years.Scientists were examining the specimen as part of a study on the reproductive organs of caecilians.But the scientists couldn’t study the DNA as it had been destroyed by the formalin.The only solution was to find a living sample – and the aim of the research mission was to find the parasites in a caecilian so that the DNA could be extracted.“We needed to search for a live parasite,” Du Preez says. “It was a huge gamble because we were told that we didn’t stand a chance, but we decided to go and look anyway, and on day two we found it.”Into the jungle in a banana boatA team consisting of Du Preez, Oliver Verneau from the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and an NWU postdoctoral student, Mathieu Badets, travelled to the virtually inaccessible area of the French Guiana forests in search of the elusive parasite.Du Preez describes the research mission and discovery as one of his career highlights.They first stayed at the CNRS base in Cayenne before embarking on a gruelling 120-kilometre trip upstream on the Approuague River in a dugout canoe, also known as a banana boat.“It took seven hours to travel up the river to reach our destination,” he tells.The team was based at a remote French scientific research base in the Nouraques Reserve next to the river.“There are no roads to access it, and the only way is by helicopter, which is very costly, or a banana boat, which is much more cost effective,” Du Preez explains.They had to take all their equipment and microscopes with them, but the base is well equipped with basic infrastructure and food kept in freezers.The base lies only four degrees north of the equator and du Preez says the team had to work in hot and rainy tropical conditions, with a constant threat of venomous snakes and jaguars.“We never slept on the floor. I spent two weeks sleeping in a hammock while at the research base,” he says.Finding the parasitesDu Preez explains that they were only allowed to catch two kinds of aquatic turtles as part of their research.The turtles were kept in containers filled with water, after which the water was examined for the parasites. Three aquatic caecilians were also caught in the reserve and in one of the caecilians they found the rare polystome, or flatworm.“Now, at last, we could extract the DNA from the parasites to see where they fit into the evolutionary development process,” Du Preez says.He says these discoveries can help to establish how the parasites developed and how they spread across the earth over geological time, as this group of parasites is species-specific.He adds that amphibians are the first group of vertebrates that moved onto dry land, even before dinosaurs.“The parasites found in the group of aquatic animals consequently give us a good indication of when this movement occurred in geological time.”Answering more questionsDu Preez says the discovery of the unique parasites will be keeping scientists very busy in months to come. He is in the process of analysing the new species and describing them, but their research has created even more questions.He expects to return to the rain forests to do more research next year.“It was an incredible place to do research and we have been invited by the CNRS to visit the base again.”last_img read more

Google Defends Android’s Openness…in a Less Than Full Rebuttal

first_imgTags:#Google#mobile#NYT#web sarah perez Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Google VP of Engineering Andy Rubin has taken to the official Android Developers blog to defend Google’s commitment to the “openness” of the Android mobile platform. The move was likely prompted by last week’s Bloomberg Businessweek article, which, citing nearly a dozen executive-level sources, claimed that Google is now exercising more control over what its partners can and cannot do with the Android mobile operating system.“As always, device makers are free to modify Android to customize any range of features for Android devices,” said Rubin. “Our approach remains unchanged. There are no lock-downs or restrictions against customizing UIs [user interfaces].”However, what went unaddressed in Google’s defense are the very claims that made Bloomberg’s article so newsworthy and notable.Rubin: Nothing Has ChangedRubin says that Google’s policies surrounding Android haven’t changed – the company has always had basic compatibility requirements and an “anti-fragmentation” program in place. It does not restrict manufacturer customizations nor does it plan to standardize on any single chipset, Rubin explained.Claims in the press, he says, were ” a lot of misinformation.”But What About Early Access?But in the Bloomberg piece, the news was not that Google is now restricting access to the Android mobile operating system, which is what the Google rebuttal appears to be refuting. The news was that Google is restricting early accessto the device makers who don’t play by Google’s rules.One more salacious claim said that Google even went so far as to try to delay the release of Android devices from Verizon which used Microsoft’s Bing search engine instead of Google’s. In addition, the article said Google wanted to approve the changes that Facebook, Google’s top competitor in many areas (search, social, advertising), had planned for its own Android-based device, the long-rumored “official” Facebook-branded phone.To put it more simply, the biggest news from Bloomberg was that Google now wants to approve all of its licensees’ plans, including those for new partnerships, plans for interface changes, the addition of new services and other code changes before giving partners early access to code.Quoting Bloomberg:“From now on, companies hoping to receive early access to Google’s most up-to-date software will need approval of their plans.”That phrase – “early access” – is of utmost importance here. As we noted last week, not getting the most recent version of Android’s code affects time to market, and therefore, a company’s bottom line.What’s interesting is that nowhere in Rubin’s defense of Android, which also addressed its delays in open-sourcing the latest code changes (i.e., Android 3.0, aka “Honeycomb”), did Rubin say anything about “early access” or the lack thereof.Of course there are often two sides to every story – CNET, for example, notes that disgruntled phone makers looking for more leverage in negotiations may have leaked this info to the press on purpose. But in this case, by choosing to ignore the real claim regarding any “early access” restrictions, and only addressing the “access” part of the situation, Google’s defense appears weak.
