They made the right call by letting me play.”Thompson said he had no regrets about anything he did, adding, “I thought I walked off pretty quickly. I got an early shower.”Thompson said physical play and intense emotions are inevitable from teams playing in a fourth consecutive final, an unprecedented feat in North American sport.“When you’ve been to four straight finals you start out not liking each other. In any playoff series you get irritated. for us it’s in game one,” Thompson said.“It’s competitive. Of course, we’re going to get irritated with each other.

Pipeline fire kills dozens

first_imgIGBAGBON, Nigeria – A ruptured gasoline pipeline exploded in flames, killing at least 34 people near Nigeria’s main city of Lagos as they tried to scoop fuel from the gushing leak, police said Wednesday. A witness said he saw 40 bodies. The government blamed criminal gangs breaking into pipelines. The explosion, on a line that carries imported gasoline from the Lagos port to inland depots, occurred Tuesday morning at Igbagbon, a village near Lagos. It was a stretch of pipeline in remote swamp waters, and news of the fire only filtered out Wednesday morning. A charred section of bush littered with hundreds of burned and unburned jerry cans and buckets was all that remained of the disaster site Wednesday after firefighters put out the blaze and engineers clamped the rupture.

DONEGAL LADIES GAA IN PLEA TO TEAMS OVER FIXTURES

first_imgDONEGAL Ladies GAA have appealed to clubs to field teams for fixtures. Clubs which have failed to field sides for recent games have now had points deducted“After a lengthy discussion at the County Board meeting last night it was decided that teams who had failed to field in games up to now lost the points. This excludes teams who rescheduled matches,” said the Ladies Board. “A big plea is being made to all clubs to play their games at the allocated dates. In extreme circumstances the game should be refixed to an agreed date.“Players just want to play. Nobody wants to gain points due to teams not fielding. We all play our registration and should be getting to play games regularly. The loss of points and a possible fine will be incurred if fixtures aren’t fulfilled.“Lets all make a huge effort to get our leagues running well,” they added.  DONEGAL LADIES GAA IN PLEA TO TEAMS OVER FIXTURES was last modified: April 11th, 2013 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 LADIES GAA IN PLEA TO TEAMS OVER FIXTURESlast_img read more

County reveals flu clinic locations

first_imgOfficials on Tuesday announced the locations of area flu shot clinics, confirming that ample vaccine will be available at county- operated clinics. In this area, flu clinics are scheduled to be held in Whittier, Pico Rivera, Santa Fe Springs and Montebello. That’s good news for seniors at the Whittier Senior Center, where officials were forced to cancel flu clinics last year, shifting the burden to Adventure County Park in South Whittier. There, seniors stood in long lines waiting for flu shots. This year, county officials will operate four flu clinics on different dates at the Whittier center, including one in December. So far this year, two cases of flu in children have already been diagnosed in the county, according to the Department of Health Services. The cases were in children with chronic health conditions, underscoring the importance of having those in that high-risk group vaccinated, said Fielding. Beyond those two cases, no significant number of people has been diagnosed with the flu so far, he added. The typical symptoms of the flu include a high fever, cough, headache and muscle aches. In an average year, the flu can cause 36,000 deaths and more than 200,000 hospitalizations in the United States, according to Dr. Alex Wu, a physician at Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital in Whittier. L ast flu season, vaccine manufacturer Chiron Corp. had its license suspended, leading to shortages of shots in some areas. But supplies this season are coming from four vaccine makers, including Chiron, which has since been cleared to produce the vaccine, officials said. The companies providing the vaccine are Sanofi Pasteur, which is delivering 60 million doses; Chiron, with as many as 26 million doses; GlaxoSmithKline, which is providing 8 million doses; and MedImmune Inc., which will distribute 3 million doses of nasal-spray vaccine. “Manufacturers have told officials to expect roughly 100 million doses nationwide this year,’ said county Public Health Officer Dr. Jonathan Fielding. “We are optimistic there is enough vaccine, particularly for those at high risk.’ @tagline columnist:Debbie Pfeiffer Trunnell can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028, or by e- mail at debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

County officials advised people in high-risk groups to get vaccinated as soon as possible, before the peak flu season of late December to early March. High-risk groups include seniors 65 and older, residents of long-term care facilities, children ages 2 and older with chronic disease conditions, children ages 6 months to 23 months, and pregnant women.

World Cup: two million tickets sold

first_img11 February 2010Two million 2010 Fifa World Cup tickets were sold in the first three sales phases, according to Fifa.“We are content with the ticket sales results so far. We still have two more ticketing phases to sell out the event,” said Horst Schmidt, chairman of Fifa’s World Cup ticketing sub-committee.The announcement comes after the fourth phase of ticket sales kicked off on Tuesday. A minimum of 400 000 tickets for a total of 53 matches have been made available until 7 April.‘First come, first serve’However, Fifa has warned that these tickets will be allocated on a “first come, first serve” basis subject to availability.“It is important for football fans to note that time is very important when one applies for a ticket. The first come first served principle means that if you do not apply on time, you run the risk of not getting a ticket,” said Schmidt.Tickets for all matches in Mangaung, Nelspruit, Polokwane and Pretoria are available, as well as for matches at Nelson Mandela Bay (except Slovenia vs England) and Rustenburg (except England vs United States).Tickets for 11 matches out of the 64 will not be available at this stage.More tickets ‘possible’The football body said a few tickets could still be made available for all matches at a later stage as some tickets, initially allocated to teams or commercial partners, might be returned to the general public sales process.Applications can be made on the Fifa website or at FNB branches (South African residents only).Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Box.net Unites with Fuze Meeting

first_imgsteven walling Box.net has partnered with Fuze Meeting to add real-time online meetings and screen sharing. Now the SaaS file-sharing and collaboration suite, which is going after SharePoint head on, has the added component of Web conferencing. For those unfamiliar with it, Fuze Meeting is a fairly slick alternative to popular options like GoToMeeting, Dimdim and WebEx. The company — formerly a public one listed as Callwave — was recently revitalized and now revolves around its online software service. Both software as a service offerings are on a freemium basis, so there’s a complete spectrum of payment options. The limited personal versions are free, while real enterprise use will require an annual fee. Using Fuze as part of your Box account will allow you to conduct meetings, share your desktop (which requires a download), and upload your Box files to a Fuze collaboration space.Box has added the Fuze Meeting support as part of its OpenBox system, which allows users to share their files with a plethora of services. Everything from Gmail to Zoho and beyond can be connected to a Box account, so this is really just another addition to the ecosystem for Box. But Fuze is competing against some extremely entrenched services, namely WebEx and GoToMeeting. To draw in Box account holders, an enterprise user base that is naturally more open to new SaaS tools, might be a big boost in its quest to gain market share.

Your Guide to Working with Project Files in DaVinci Resolve

first_imgBacking Up ProjectsAbove, I said I sometimes use the export option to back up a project file off-drive because I’m incredibly paranoid about losing an edit. However, in Resolve 15, we also have a dedicated backup system. First, let’s distinguish between creating a backup and autosaving. When Resolve automatically saves your project, it overwrites the existing save with a new version that includes all of the changes since the last save — the basics right? A backup, however, will be of an older variation of the project, depending on when you create it.For example, Resolve creates backups every X minutes, every X hours, and every X days. If you generate backups every 20 minutes, you’ll have three backups until the creation of the hourly backup. The first hourly backup is inherently going to be different from the third hourly backup. This system is ideal if you accidentally delete an important timeline and don’t realize it until it’s too late. With backups, you can revert to an earlier version of the project.To find the project backup option, hit Ctrl+ to open the preferences panel (also located under DaVinci Resolve in the top menu), and select “Project Save and Load.”With this setting activated, Resolve will save multiple backup projects comparable to the grandfather-father-son backup rotation. By default, this setting is inactive; therefore, if you’re loading up Resolve for the first time and want to automatically back up your projects, you’re going to need to turn this feature on.As you can see from the menu, there are a lot of backup options, and after a day of editing, you’re going to have many backups of your project. You don’t have to worry about there being too many, as they only generate when changes are being implemented — and they write over themselves on a first-in-and-out basis. Once you reach your maximum X-minutes backups, the first one will get replaced with the next X-minute backup and so on.To find your backups, head to the Project Manager, right-click, and hit “Project Backups.” From here, you can load and delete individual backups. Interested in Resolve’s capability as an NLE? These guidelines will help you navigate working with project files in this renowned application.When you initially open Resolve, you’ll see a project window called the Project Manager. Here, you can load an existing project, or you can create a new project from scratch. However, you may notice that you don’t get to choose where the project file will be stored. Even when saving your project through the “Save Copy As” function, you still don’t get to choose the location — only the name. This is because Resolve operates within an industry-standard database system. Any item that isn’t a media file will be stored in the database. Admittedly, if you haven’t worked with a system like this, it can seem daunting at first. A quick Google search for “DaVinci Resolve save location” will bring up hundreds of frantic search queries from worried users.In hindsight, I can say it makes a lot of sense. All projects are stored in the same place on your system drive, but if you need to back up, transfer, or import a project, you do so within Resolve and not in explorer or finder as you would with Premiere. In fact, renaming or moving projects outside of Resolve can result in a project becoming corrupted. It’s a big no-no.Let’s have a look at how you execute these tasks.Transferring and RestoringIn your Project Manager, right-click on a project and select archive.This will copy all of the media in your project to the destination folder. Rest assured: the original media will remain untouched in its original location. It’s important to note that if you’re using hundreds of gigabytes of media, not only is the process going to take a while, you’re also going to have to make sure the new drive has enough available space.How an archived project folder will appear. With your project fully archived, you need to restore it to use in Resolve. Back in the project window, right-click anywhere, and hit “restore.” Navigate to the archived project folder, and select open. Resolve will then import the project, bins, and media exactly as you left them prior to archiving. If you were previously a Premiere Pro user, you might find yourself in familiar territory with this process.Import and ExportWhen you open the contextual menu in the project manager, you’ll also see an option to import and export a project.At first, this may seem like the same thing as archiving and restoring, but the primary difference is that you are only exporting the project files — the timelines, bins, settings. Everything but the media.This is for when you need to work from a different computer, and you already have the media on the other machine.  If you’re hyper-cautious, you could also use this function to make a backup of your project to store in the cloud or on a flash drive.A quick note regarding this process: if you export a project, then place it on the desktop of a new computer, you will be unable to open the project directly from the file itself. It doesn’t matter if you associate the file type with Resolve, it still won’t open the software. Even if you have Resolve open, the project will not load. You have to import back through the project window.However, when you import a project from another computer, you’ll notice that all of the media is offline — even if you have the same media on your computer. Therefore, you will need to relink your media.Thankfully, this is a very straightforward process. You don’t want to individually relink media clips, as that’s a tedious process — as is relinking individual bins. Instead, right-click on the master bin, and select “Relink Clips for Selected Bins.” From here, navigate to your media folder, click open, and Resolve will relink the missing files. Save AsFinally, we have the “Save As” function. I’m sure everyone will know how Save As works, but it’s important to know that when you use Save As, you will immediately switch over and begin editing the new copy, not the original.Perhaps the most crucial bit of information about the way Resolve handles project files is their deletion, as deleting a project from the Project Manager is permanent.As you can see in the popup above, you cannot undo the action — you will not find the project file in the recycling bin, and if you go to the database folder on your hard drive, you won’t be able to bring it back by hitting Ctrl+Z.Lewis McGregor is a certified DaVinci Resolve trainer.Looking for more on Resolve?
