Mr Connors, Mr Murphy and Dr O’Connor speak to the mediaHEALTH bosses have nailed rumours surrounding the future of jobs at Letterkenny General Hospital.They’ve also slammed claims that maintenance and work at the site hadn’t been carried out and this contributed to the flood which caused millions of euro worth of damage three weeks ago.They spoke out as the hospital’s interim Emergency Department begins operations today, taking some ambulance patients until Sunday night, with walk-in patients from north Donegal from Monday. Sean Murphy, the hospital manager, dismissed what he called “all sorts of rumours” about the future of catering services.Meals had been brought in from Mayo over the past fortnight but the cooking of all meals will resume in Letterkenny in two weeks’ time when new temporary facilities are opened.“There have been rumours and they’re not true,” said Mr Murphy.“We are working to do as many things as possible in as short a time as possible and catering will be back on site in the next two weeks. “Catering facilities are being organised and will be on site so that all meals for staff and patients will be prepared at the hospital in a couple of weeks time.”It’s understood management were keen to dismiss rumours that catering at the hospital was going to be outsourced to another company.Mr Murphy insisted staff would all be back on site and preparing meals.And Paul Connors, the head of the HSE’s Communications Department, said he wanted to “nail” the suggestion that the hospital had failed to comply with works in 2002.He said council officials and HSE officials had discussed the claims and concluded they were “rubbish.” Mr Connors said the HSE were “totally committed” to restoring all services to Letterkenny General Hospital in as short a time as possible.He and Mr Murphy confirmed that the Government waived red tape to allow work on the site to proceed quickly.Several local contractors won sub-contract work on the site including joiners and electricians.Dr Paul O’Connor, the hospital’s Clinical Director, said staff were pleased at how quickly progress had been made to begin the restoration of services.

An avid fisherman recently made an annual return to Clear Lake and wound up reeling in a potential all-tackle world record.Vacaville native and chiropractor Sean Moffett was fishing for trophy bass on his boat Saturday morning accompanied by his wife Stacy to celebrate their 29th wedding anniversary.Instead of a monster bass, however, he unexpectedly caught a mammoth catfish that was far too big for his 18-inch net. “I saw the tail come out of the water and it was a dinosaur,” Moffett said. …
A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Tags:#Google#news#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… We have been hearing rumors about the Google Drive online storage service for years now. This mythical GDrive would give users the ability to easily store and access all of their files in the cloud. Lots of other services already offer this, of course, but few of them are at the center of our online lives as much as Google is. Yesterday, Google Sites, a service that lets users build their own websites without ever having to touch the HTML or CSS code, just launched an update to its unified ‘insert’ dialog. This dialog brings together all of your files from almost all of Google’s services and looks a lot like we would imagine the GDrive to look like.Even more interesting, as Alex Chitu at the Google Operating System blog point out, is that you can use this link to access the ‘document picker’ used in Google Sites directly – though most of the items in it are meant to be inserted somewhere else and don’t open in the standalone dialog (yet?). Internally, according to Chitu, Google calls this service OnePick, though we weren’t able to find any other references to this so far. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting frederic lardinois What makes this dialog interesting is that this is likely the first time Google has brought all of these services together and also made it easy to search for documents across all of these services. Of course, in the context of Google Sites, it makes perfect sense to see all of these assets in one dialog, but until now you couldn’t directly access Picasa’s albums from Google Sites, for example.We can’t be sure if this is really a harbinger of the Google Drive, but hopefully Google will bring this interface to other services like Gmail or even Google Wave.
Buying used gear can be a great investment, but it can also involve risks. Let’s discuss which ones to take and which ones to avoid.In today’s film and video marketplace, it feels like everyone’s chasing the latest, greatest cameras and trends. From Full HD to 4K at 60 fps to whatever the heck it is that people want to do with 8K internal recording. It seems like every few months there are some big announcements and big technical breakthroughs.For a filmmaker or videographer simply looking to purchase a camera, it can be a bit overwhelming. You don’t want to go out and buy a new $3,000 camera just to see it become old news by the end of the week.Because of this overflow on the market, many filmmakers who have saved and are ready to make an investment — big or small — a smart choice is often the used gear route. But buying used also means that you need to really research and know what you’re getting.That is, if you’re cautious when considering all the risks that come with your used investments.Make Sure You’re Actually Getting a Good DealSo, before you dive into making a used gear investment, you’ll definitely want to do your due diligence and research the market. To start, you can always look up what every camera (or piece of equipment or gear) currently costs new. From there, you can also check around to get a ballpark estimate for the used piece of equipment.Big wholesale websites like B&H and Adorama can be good places to start. But for used, it might be best to check around on Amazon and Ebay, as well. From there, you should start to understand what used gear is actually worth.BUT! For many of these resale websites, used gear is actually refurbished, and often represents at least some type of care. Once you start shopping around from friends, colleagues, or just through online marketplaces like Craigslist or Facebook, you’re really dealing with true USED gear that hasn’t been touched up, or perhaps even tested, recently.As such, the price should drop. You should never pay the same price for something used as you would new. And, it might very well be best to not even pay the “used” price online for a used camera from a friend — without checking it out first, that is.Check the SensorImage via Hayati Kayhan.If and when you do get a chance to check a camera out in person, you’re going to want to look it over as thoroughly as possible. But one part that you should absolutely be sure to check out is the sensor. Cosmetic damages to cameras or gear should be easy to identify, but any small scratches or build-up inside the camera could be the biggest problem.When you can, inspect the sensor from the outside first for any noticeable damage. From there, you can give it an actual test.Record Test FootageHaving bought used cameras for both video and photography, for me, this seems to be pretty standard practice and probably the best way to test to make sure the secondhand gear you’re investing in is truly functional and working properly. For photography, you can simply take some test photos. Try to shoot at different F-stops and get some shots of clean backgrounds — like a blue sky or a white wall. This’ll help you when inspecting the images to see if there are any dots or blemishes.For video, you can try the same things, but of course, by actually recording video. Try recording at different frames per second. Try different lenses. (If you can, bring your own lenses to make sure they fit, as well.) Try, as best as possible, to replicate your intended workflow with the new camera or gear. If you can, bring your own cards and laptop so that you can make sure the footage will upload and isn’t damaged for your edits.Read Reviews for Common ProblemsImage via SKphotographer.Along with your initial research into pricing for your used gear and cameras, it is also helpful to research reviews to find common problems associated with cameras that could pop up after a couple years. Make a list of all the potential issues that people have reported, and ask if any of those problems (or warning signs of those problems) have been noticed with the gear.Check Shutter Count (If Applicable)While not always an issue with all video cameras, for many DSLRs back in the day, checking the shutter count for your hybrid video and photo cameras was perhaps the biggest piece of information about just how much wear and tear the camera had. It might not be the true equivalent of miles from the odometer of a car, but it’d at least give you an idea of just how often a camera has been used.If you’re looking strictly at video cameras, you can ask about its usage. Red flags to look out for are cameras or gear that have been used in extreme weather conditions (hot or cold), as well as in sandy environments like on the beach or on long hikes or trips.You’ll perhaps never know the true story of your used cameras or gear, but if you follow these steps and ask the right questions, you should mitigate the chances of investing in a piece of gear that might break down on you well before you expected.Cover image by nampix.For more film and video gear advice and tips, check out these articles below.Tips for Selling Your Cameras and Video Gear Online6 Online Resources for Renting Camera GearHow To Make Your Expensive Gear Investment Last ForeverIndustry Trends: The Most Popular Gear Rentals of 2018What You Should Buy After You’ve Purchased a Camera

Later I had the privilege to meet him … and we became good friends in football.

Minnesota Vikings rookie Cordarrelle Patterson has set the NFL record for longest kickoff return, a 109-yard touchdown to start the game against Green Bay.The entire length of an NFL field is 120 yards, including both end zones. The field of play is 100 yards with each end zone extending an extra 10 yards at either end. Patterson was as far back as he could be in the end zone when he caught the opening kick from Tim Masthay on Sunday night. He needed a full 12 seconds to evade 11 would-be tacklers and reach the far end of the field.The rookie wide receiver gave the Minnesota Vikings to an instant 7-0 lead over the Green Bay Packers for his second kickoff return touchdown of the season. He set a new record for the longest kickoff return in NFL history, three players shared the previous record of 108 yards: Ellis Hobbs for New England in 2007, Randall Cobb for Green Bay in 2011, and Jacoby Jones for Baltimore in 2012.Despite the Patterson record-breaking run, Green Bay still managed to come out on top beating the Vikings 44-31.
“I couldn’t hear anything,” he said. “Emotions were flying, and words can’t even describe how good that felt.” After suffering a rough first half, which included a pass interference call that led to a second PSU score, Torrence sought to redeem himself in the second half. The Buckeyes made adjustments at halftime to get back in the game. So did Torrence. “I just told myself, ‘I am just going to be more aggressive, and if you all throw anything into these flats or try and run any type of screens, it’s going to be a wrap for you,’” he said. “That was just my halftime adjustment for myself.” It worked. After senior captain Brian Rolle challenged his fellow defensive teammates on the sideline to make a big play, Torrence delivered. “That was big,” Rolle said. “I remember before that telling all the guys, ‘Who wants it? Who wants to be great?’ Sure enough, he picked the ball off and ran it back, and I told him, ‘That’s how you be great.’” The interception deflated the sinking Penn State offense and proved to be the difference in the game. Torrence’s score gave the Bucks a three-point lead, one they would not relinquish. “Those kinds of plays take games over,” said defensive tackle Dexter Larimore. “It hurts their offense and quarterback … It was big for momentum change. Tonight those made the difference.” One play. That’s all it takes to change the course of a game. The Penn State Nittany Lions realized that Saturday as they saw their 14-3 halftime lead quickly turn to a 38-14 pummeling by the No. 9-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes. With the Nittany Lions trailing by four points midway through the third quarter, it appeared that momentum was shifting toward the Buckeyes. Cornerback Devon Torrence helped continue the shift. Facing a second-and-nine from their own 37-yard line, Nittany Lions quarterback Matt McGloin dropped back to pass. As he fired short to his left, Torrence made a break for the ball and came away with it. “I just saw it and just jumped it,” Torrence said. “I think it was maybe a low throw and I had to kind of tip it to myself to put it into position for me to catch it.” Tipping the McGloin pass twice before securing the ball and returning it 34 yards for the go-ahead touchdown, Torrence turned a docile crowd of 105,466 into one of pure pandemonium in a matter of seconds.
