first_imgResidents of the Garrygort community close to Kerrykeel and Milford have expressed serious reservations over plans to construct two wind turbines in their neighbourhood.Members of the local community told the Tirconail Tribune that they do not want these turbines in such close proximity.They point to the unacceptable noise levels, visual pollution and intereference to daily life of the people and animals, flicker effect along with the potential for serious deterioration in the value of land and sites in the area. A number of residents who contacted the newspaper this week say that leaflets on behalf of Garrymore Windfarms Ltd. were delivered to households this week inviting them to an information evening on Tuesday.The event in the supper room of the Milford Parochial Hall on Tuesday evening will run from 7.00 to 9pm.Householders in the area that these turbines will be fully visible from the town of Milford and they do nothing to enhance the landscape.The Tribune reports that the names of an architect’s office in Northern Ireland are on the leaflet for those seeking further information. The residents of the Garrygort area said it is important for the wider community to come to the information evening and to make their concerns known to the developers of the project.Kerrykeel and Milford residents opposed to wind turbines plan was last modified: November 21st, 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:KERRYKEELmeetingMilfordwind turbineslast_img read more

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#cloud#news Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img audrey watters Drupal software, support, and hosting company Acquia announced that its Drupal Gardens leaves private beta today. Drupal Gardens is a content management & social publishing system, offering “Drupal-as-a-service” and greatly simplifying the creation and management of Drupal websites. Prior to Drupal Gardens, those wanting to utilize Drupal to build their sites had to download and install the code themselves. In some ways then, Drupal Gardens is the WordPress.com for Drupal, although Drupal and Drupal Gardens are feature-rich, offering more than just a blogging platform. But like WordPress.com, Drupal Gardens may be an avenue that facilitates the open source platform’s adoption. Drupal Gardens is hosted on Acquia’s servers; there are no downloads or installation, and there are multiple templates for users to design and customize their own site layouts. Drupal’s adoption has been on the rise with its implementation by a number of high-profile websites, including NASA, The Onion, and the White House. More than 500,000 websites are now registered with drupal.org. The Drupal Gardens project has been in development for more than a year and already boasts over 12,000 sites. One of the features as part of today’s release is simplified site duplication. This allows users to clone an existing site, including its design, functionality, information architecture and content. This is a play for the enterprise, says Acquia co-founder and Drupal creator Dries Buytaert, as it will allow site builders to quickly roll out new microsites.Drupal Gardens will be free for all users until the end of 2010, when it will implement a pricing structure based on site size and traffic. The platform also features a one-click export button, so there is no lock-in to Drupal Gardens. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement In the opera, which is set in ancient Beijing, the steely princess subjects all her suitors to three seemingly impossible riddles. The price of a wrong answer? Death, of course. But when Calaf (played here by Argentine tenor Marcelo Puente) falls in love with her, he gets all the questions right. Turandot still refuses to marry him, and that’s when he turns the tables, posing a puzzle of his own to the princess.READ MORE Advertisement Facebook The common perception of Turandot’s title princess is that she is a fearsome, all-powerful ice queen with a penchant for chopping her suitors’ heads off. But in Vancouver Opera’s new production of Giacomo Puccini’s outsized final work, American soprano Amber Wagner is tasked with bringing much more to the role.Acclaimed Quebec director Renaud Doucet is focused on finding Turandot’s humanity. “He’s more interested in making it a story that’s believable,” says Wagner, who’s taking on the monumental role for the first time, after years of specializing in Richard Wagner. “Rather than saying ‘Here’s this frozen ice princess,’ how can we make it human so the audience believes it?“This is what opera is really about now,” she adds, on a break before rehearsal, sitting at the O’Brian Centre for Vancouver Opera, sipping on tea to preserve a voice the New York Times has called “powerful, gleaming and richly expressive”. “Renaud’s done quite a good job building a layered and multifaceted back story for her.” Login/Register With: LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Twitterlast_img read more

The NFL draft starts Thursday night, and during the coverage you’ll probably hear about safe and risky picks. In some cases, the risk is specific to the player. Perhaps Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is a risk for his history of alleged off-the-field misconduct, while his counterpart at Oregon, Marcus Mariota, comes with worries that his stock was inflated by the Ducks’ spread offense. But some of the risk is also considered intrinsic to certain positions, while other positions carry a reputation for being particularly low-risk.The trouble, though, is that there’s no way to prove which positions consistently offer good returns on draft investment — at least not with football data in its current state. And in large part, that’s because we can’t really evaluate on player performance as accurately for the so-called non-skill positions.For instance, taking a quarterback (like Winston and Mariota) might seem like a hazardous bet to make early in the draft. But it’s possible that QBs only appear risky relative to other positions because we can more readily measure a quarterback’s performance statistically. In other words, when Ryan Leaf posts a 39.0 quarterback rating as a rookie, he’s easy to identify as a bust, but his linebacking equivalent might be harder to recognize.Here’s another example. You could use Pro-Football-Reference’s Approximate Value (AV) to estimate the odds that a player’s performance1We’re looking at the first five seasons of a player’s career. will live up to the expectations of where he was drafted, and break those numbers down by position:You’d find that the average offensive lineman2Weighted by the expected value of the pick, so that successful high picks are rewarded more — and highly-touted disappointments are more heavily penalized. meets or exceeds the median AV expected of his draft slot about 59 percent of the time — the NFL-wide average across all positions is, by definition, 50 percent — while the average receiver3Lumping together wide receivers and tight ends. provides positive value for his pick slot only 41 percent of the time. And quarterbacks wouldn’t be far behind receivers on the “risky” list, beating expectations at a rate of only 43 percent.But there’s another clear pattern in the AV data: The positions that seem like the riskiest picks are also the ones where we have the most data to differentiate between good and bad performances. Coincidence? Probably not.An offensive lineman’s AV is based solely on his team’s offensive performance, his own playing time and any accolades he receives (like Pro Bowl or All-Pro nods). So, short of being outright benched, there’s very little he could do to distinguish himself negatively under the structure of the study above (or those like it). A skill-position player struggling to meet expectations, on the other hand, can be identified via his inferior yardage, touchdowns, turnovers and the like. (To the extent that those metrics are even good descriptors of player performance.)It’s similar to the phenomenon that causes linemen to boast a far higher Pro Bowl “retention rate” than other offensive positions, particularly quarterbacks. The less information voters have to go on, the more they rely on a player’s priors (and perhaps rightly so). And the same can go for the draft, where certain positions can feel safer simply because we don’t have glaring, easily-quantifiable evidence to the contrary.The answer, of course, is more data. When Chase Stuart conducted a more granular (if anecdotal) look at offensive tackles using ProFootballFocus grades, for instance, he found what seems to be a healthy bust rate even for a position often tagged as one of the most reliable. Then again, PFF grades aren’t universally accepted as gospel, either; besides, they only go back to the 2007 season (as opposed to 1950 for AV).That’s why, for now at least, it may not be possible to truly say whether certain positions are more or less likely to live up to their draft-day expectations. It’s another unanswerable question to throw onto the pile of things about the NFL draft that we just don’t know. read more

Columbus Crew vs. Real Salt LakeThursday, 8pm at Crew StadiumGame 1: RSL 1, Crew 0Players to watchColumbusForward Guillermo Barros Schelotto.  Because the Crew are entering the game in need of two goals to advance, Crew coach Robert Warzycha must employ his top goal scorer if the Crew wish to advance.Real Salt Lake Goalkeeper Nick Rimando.Real Salt Lake knows that the Crew will be pulling out all the stops when it comes to scoring goals. Rimando will surely face an onslaught for the Crew forwards, especially if the game is scoreless late.Key to the MatchWith the Crew already in a one-goal hole, Warzycha must employ his top goal scoring lineup. They don’t have the luxury of playing their usual game, as they must score at least two goals to advance. The Columbus Crew are losing 1-0 in their second playoff game of the season and the referee hasn’t yet blown the opening whistle.The first-round format in the MLS Cup playoffs features a home and home series in which the winner is determined by which team scores a higher total of goals over a two-game stretch.This makes it effectively a 180-minute match where the half-time is days, not minutes.The Crew will take the field Thursday evening in the hole. Their play as of late does not easily lend itself to confidence in their ability to dig themselves out. They don’t even appear to be using all of their shovels.Columbus coach Robert Warzycha’s constant lineup shifting has been well documented this season. Last season’s MLS MVP and current Crew leading scorer, Guillermo Barros Schelotto, has been kept out of games when the opponent has artificial turf.Imagine, by way of comparison, if Jim Tressel had held Beanie Wells out of a game against Penn State because they don’t play on FieldTurf.Warzycha will need to put his best goal-scoring combination on the field without sacrificing the integrity of the defense.When asked about sitting his top goal scorer in the first match against Real Salt Lake, the Crew’s first round opponent, Warzycha simply said he wanted to try something new.“We didn’t score any goals in the last five games when they were on the field,” Warzycha said about Schelotto and Crew forward Alejandro Moreno. “I thought we’d go with a different combination.”Even the opposing coach appeared surprised by Warzycha’s decision to sit Schelotto, but that didn’t make him unhappy about the turn of events.“I don’t know what’s going on inside of their locker room,” Kreis said. “I don’t have all the information that goes into the decision, but we’re feeling good about it.”Regardless of the reason for the 1-0 victory, RSL forward Robbie Findley can smell the blood in the water.“We’ve been talking all week about this home game being our chance to get out on top,” Findley said. “Now we’ve got to go over there for a tough game, a hard-fought game, and now we’ve got to leave it all on the field.”Columbus will run onto the field at Crew Stadium Thursday night knowing they have their work cut out for them. A one-goal victory, such as they’ve recorded eight times this season, will not suffice. Fans can hope they won’t make the task more difficult on themselves by leaving their biggest producers off the field.Crew captain and defender Frankie Hejduk isn’t sounding an alarm just yet.“[Being down a goal] doesn’t change anything,” Hejduk said. “We’re going to come out firing and we’re pretty solid at home, so we’re not too worried about it.”Somebody had better start worrying about it. Otherwise, the Crew’s road to a repeat will come to an unhappy end. read more

first_imgChelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has his eyes set on David de Gea’s number one jersey in the Spanish national teamThe 23-year-old has made just the one appearance for Spain at international level in a friendly win over Costa Rica last November.But, following De Gea’s lacklustre World Cup campaign, Marca conducted a voting poll which saw fans vote for Kepa to become Spain’s new number one.However, the shot-stopper himself is refusing to get carried away and will instead attempt to convince new boss Luis Enrique of starting him ahead of De Gea on the training ground.“Being in the squad is already a reason for joy. We all want to be here and we all want to play; I work for that,” said Kepa, according to FourFourTwo.“We’ll meet the coaching staff in the first few days and get ourselves going, because we have two big games ahead.“It’s a question for the coach. What I will do is work, although obviously, we all want to play.“The coach will decide the best thing for the team, but in the training sessions, I’ll try to put in the effort, for the good of the group most of all.“All players work to compete and to play. The coach decides and we accept whatever it is, always with good harmony.“De Gea is a great goalkeeper and the goal is perfectly covered with him. The World Cup was how it was, we came back too early, but I don’t pay attention to polls or what people say. I try to isolate myself and focus on myself.”In case you were wondering how to pronounce @kepa_46’s name… ?(Cheers, Dave). pic.twitter.com/S7QbIF3zksDavid Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) August 10, 2018Chelsea made Kepa the world’s most expensive goalkeeper after forking out €80m to sign him from Athletic Bilbao last month.And the Spaniard has since kept two clean sheets in his first four Premier League games.He also insists that the €80m price tag has not brought any more pressure in his shoulders.“It’s the price it is because the market is like that, too,” Kepa said.“Higher and higher fees are being paid and I see it as a consequence of the market.“I’m getting used to my new life: a new city, new team… but it’s been positive because when things start well on the pitch, it makes everything easier.“I have felt valued. In the last few years, a lot of Spaniards have done important things here and that’s good for those of us to arrive most recently.“This is a great club, who in recent years have won the Champions League, Europa League, the Premier League… it’s a team with great players.“It was an important gamble and I’m happy to take this step.

first_img Posted: March 12, 2019 March 12, 2019 KUSI Newsroom, SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Two transients were behind bars today on suspicion of fatally stabbing 63-year-old Marjorie Gawitt during a predawn residential burglary in a neighborhood near Agua Hedionda Lagoon.Ian Forrester Bushee, 37, and 26-year-old Malissa Deanna James were arrested late Monday morning a few blocks from the site of the slaying of Carlsbad resident Marjorie Gawitt, according to police.Gawitt made a 911 call about 12:30 a.m. Monday to report that she had been badly wounded in an assault at her home in the 1800 block of Outrigger Lane, Lt. Greg Koran said. Medics took the mother of three to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead about an hour later.Investigators believe that Bushee and James — both of them on probation in connection with a burglary in San Bernardino County — broke into Gawitt’s home, where at least one of them stabbed her before the pair stole her car and fled.Deputies found the vehicle abandoned on Grand Avenue in San Marcos about five hours after the fatal assault occurred, sheriff’s Lt. David Buether said. Shortly before noon Monday, the suspects were captured in an open, brushy area off the 4800 block of Park Drive, about one-tenth of a mile from the victim’s home.Last April, the suspects were arrested after a homeowner in Upland walked in on them as they were allegedly ransacking the victim’s home, according to The Press-Enterprise in Riverside. The pair allegedly fled with thousands of dollars worth of jewelry and electronics, including $70,000 in collectable coins stuffed in a sock.Late Monday evening, Bushee and James were booked into county jail on suspicion of murder, burglary, conspiracy and auto theft. They were being held without bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
