first_imgElection candidate Manus Kelly has called for Donegal County Council improve road safety in the Letterkenny Municipal District.The Glenswilly man, who is standing for Fianna Fail in the local elections, is normally found behind the steering wheel of a rally car.But the company director said that his recent canvass around Letterkenny has opened his eyes to a need for road safety improvements. He said “During my canvass over the past 10 weeks I have been met by concerned residents in all areas of the Letterkenny Municipal District highlighting the dangers they face with regard to road safety in their communities.“These areas include Manorcunningham, Woodlands, Ballymacool, Glenswilly, Churchill, Glenmaquinn and particularly around schools in these areas where there is an obvious lack of speed deterrents and adequate pedestrian crossings.“It is vital that we make Road Safety a major priority in our communities and currently this issue does not seem to be high enough on the agenda list of priorities being addressed on Donegal County Council.”He added that consideration must be given as a matter of urgency to the adequate provision to a number of areas including speed ramps, street lights, pedestrian crossings, crash barriers, vision lines, road surfaces, signage and footpaths. Kelly added “If elected to Donegal County Council it is my intention to ensure the provision of Road Safety is greatly improved and brought up to a satisfactory standard for the pedestrians and road users of the Letterkenny Municipal District.”Kelly says Letterkenny road safety needs ramped up was last modified: May 14th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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:donegalletterkennyManus Kellyroad safetylast_img read more

first_img14 December 2014The Springbok Sevens defeated New Zealand 26-17 in a pulsating final in the Cell C Nelson Mandela Bay Sevens, a week after they claimed the Dubai Sevens title.The hosts trailed Fiji by two points coming into their home event, but now lead the standings with 59 points, with Fiji (51), New Zealand (47) and Australia (46) completing the top four places that would esnure automatic entry into the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016.More than 63 000 people attended the event in Port Elizabeth and they were left in raptures after the Blitzboks again came from behind to claim the title they won a year ago. The team, who had also trailed Australia in the semifinals (10-0), conceded an early try in the final, as Sherwin Stowers dotted down for New Zealand.Tries by Philip Snyman and Cecil Afrika gave the home side the lead, but Afrika was yellow-carded shortly after and New Zealand used that advantage to claim a second try before the end of the half.Try scorerLeading tournament try-scorer Seabelo Senatla scored early in the second half to push the lead out to nine points, but again New Zealand came back within two minutes with a try by Joe Webber, his second of the final.The deal was sealed for the home side though when Kwagga Smith scored, with Afrika’s conversion providing the necessary buffer for any late All Blacks Sevens counterpunch.Coach Neil Powell was pleased with his side’s ability to stay calm under pressure and to play to their strengths.“We had to dig deep. We had three very worthy opponents today and each asked very different questions. We had to come from behind in each match today, but this team has shown they have the determination and belief to succeed.“We used sport psychologist Dr. Jannie Botha this week and it helped the guys to stay focused in a week full of the pressure that comes with hosting the tournament. A late second half surge by the Springbok Sevens team helped them to a hard-fought 19-10 win over Australia in the semifinals earlier on Sunday.Three second half tries gave the home side a win that looked unlikely after Australia scored twice in a minute and the Blitsboks had Afrika sin-binned as well. Australia’s 10-0 lead was first cut by a try from Branco du Preez, before Kyle Brown and Werner Kok ran in from a distance to clinch the win.In their quarterfinal match against England, they had to overcome an early try by England’s Alex Grey to score a 31-7 win.A brace by Kwagga Smith, another long-range effort by Seabelo Senatla and a well- worked try by Werner Kok secured the passage into the next phase.Earlier the USA won the Plate Final by beating Fiji 21-14, Portugal won the Shield by beating Samoa 19-14 and Canada outlasted Kenya 24-7 for the Bowl.In the bronze final, Australia beat Argentina 34-19.The standings after three rounds of the HSBC Sevens World Series are:South Africa 59Fiji 51New Zealand 47Australia 46Argentina 40England 37Samoa 29Scotland 27USA 26Wales 25Source: SA Rugby Unionlast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) is taking President Donald Trump’s more protectionist moves on trade this week in stride, despite AFBF’s long-held support of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)Trump’s executive order to withdrawal the United States from TPP is not what the nation’s largest farm organization wanted, but it was no surprise after President Trump vowed to make that a priority during his campaign. Many in agriculture are now wondering what the new administration has planned for other trade deals, namely the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).“When NAFTA was first implemented, the U.S. had only $9 billion of ag exports with Mexico and Canada,” said Dave Salmonsen, Trade Adviser with the AFBF. “Today that number is $38 billion, so this trade deal has been beneficial to agriculture.”Leaders of both Mexico and Canada are open to new talks about trade. Those conversations will deal largely with manufacturing, though agriculture is also expected to come up.“There are some issues in the ag sector that we could move forward with, including remaining border barriers from Canada on dairy and poultry exports,” Salmonsen said. “If everything is back on the table we also have some issues with Mexico to hash out.”With recently becoming the number one corn importer, Mexico is proving to be an important market for U.S. farmers. In the 2015-16 crop year, Mexico imported nearly 13 million tons of corn. During the 2016 calendar year that number is 14 million tons, accounting for two straight years of record corn imports Mexico, knocking Japan out of the corn customer top spot.“It would be a pretty bad situation for American farmers if NAFTA was weakened or changed or thrown out of the window,” said Ryan LeGrand, the U.S. Grains Council director in Mexico. “What you would probably have is an increase in tariffs and that would cause Mexico to look south to Brazil and Argentina for more of their corn, cutting into our market share and eventually affecting the price of U.S. corn.”Mexico has the potential to grow as an importer of U.S. grains in the future, according to LeGrand.“Mexico’s animal producers are very technologically advanced, they’re progressive and they’re growing,” he said. “That means more production for Mexico and more need for grains, which should be U.S. grains as long as we keep NAFTA in place.”Commerce Secretary nominee Wilbur Ross, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and White House Trade Council head Peter Navarro, will negotiate the new bilateral trade deals with countries once related to the TPP, while Trump will meet soon with Canada and Mexico’s leaders on NAFTA.last_img read more

first_imgrichard macmanus The popularity of Twitter has produced a number of clones in China, just as there are Facebook clones. Some of China’s Twitter clones have been closed down by the Chinese government, but some have survived. We take a look at both cases in this post. We also assess Twitter’s chances of success in China, should it ever be freed from the ‘Great Firewall of China.’ Fanfou, Jiwai and Digu were some of the first Twitter clones to become successful in China. Howeverall three – plus Twitter itself – were blocked by the Chinese government in July 2009, because of their usage during the uprisings in Ürümqi. According to an AFP article, Chinese authorities blamed online agitators for helping to stoke violence in that region. Prior to being shut down, Fanfou had been dubbed “China’s Twitter” and had almost reached 1 million registered users by the end of June 2009. An October 2009 report by China Daily noted that Fanfou was founded in July 2007 by Wang Xing, a young entrepreneur who also founded China’s current most popular social network Renren (formally known as Xiaonei). Both Renren and Fanfou were almost carbon copies of their U.S. equivalent services – Facebook and Twitter respectively. Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Weibo Rises to Take Fanfou’s PlaceSince the closure of Twitter, Fanfou, Jiwai and Digu, other services have risen to take their place. Taotao (owned by the company that produces popular IM service QQ) andZuosa.com are two examples. However it isWeibo that has emerged to become the biggest micro-blogging service in China. Weibo is owned by Sina.com, a huge portal company in China, and is connected to Sina’s blogging platform. Weibo is very much like Twitter, in that it allows users to post short messages 140 Chinese characters or less via the Web, SMS or MMS. Although according to Chinese Internet expert and Beijing resident Kaiser Kuo, in Chinese 140 characters can actually produce quite a long message.The major difference between Weibo and Twitter, according to Kuo, is that Weibo is censored. Or in the parlance of Chinese Internet users, it is “harmonized.”Sina’s Weibo probably has a much greater chance of surviving than its counterparts like Twitter and Fanfou, because it knows how to self-censor. Meng Bo, deputy editor-in-chief of Sina.com and project manager of Sina Weibo, told China Daily in October that “Sina is playing by the rules as they are laid down, with strict word filtering in operation.”According to Meng, there are two teams of staff “keeping close watch to ensure there is no vulgar content or anything that violates the rules.” Would Twitter Succeed in China Anyway?China’s surviving micro-blogging services are tightly controlled by the censorship climate in China. However even if Twitter became available again in China, would it take off with mainstream Chinese Internet users? Kaiser Kuo thinks that it wouldn’t, because of the popularity of currently operational services like Weibo and Taotao. He remarked that although there would be an uptake in the number of users on Twitter, if it was ever to be made available again, Weibo and others will have gained too much momentum by then.
