Tennis: Roddick up, Blake down

first_img“You can’t sit back and hope that he loses because that’s not going to happen a lot.” Roddick is off to a 16-3 start in 2007, but looking for his first title. Each of his threedefeats came at the hands of the eventual tournament champion, including a loss to Federer in the Australian Open semifinals, a semifinal loss to Andy Murray at San Jose, and a runner-up finish to Tommy Haas at Memphis. Roddick also won both his matches in the United States’ 4-1 victory last month over the Czech Republic in the first round of Davis Cup play. Blake, asked what went wrong in his match against Benneteau, said, “Everything.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! No. 3 Roddick finished the match on a sweltering afternoon in the desert with a crosscourt forehand winner that the Belgian couldn’t reach. Roddick thrust his fist into the air briefly in triumph, then used his shirt to wipe the sweat soaking his face. Julien Benneteau of France bounced another highly ranked American, No. 6 James Blake, out of the tournament with a 6-2, 7-6 (1) victory in their third-round match. Blake had trouble keeping the ball in play, committing 41 unforced errors to Benneteau’s 18. Guillermo Canas, who a day earlier upset Roger Federer to end the Swiss star’s winning streak at 41 matches, was ousted by Carlos Moya in the third round. Moya beat Canas 6-4, 6-4. No. 2 Rafael Nadal beat Fernando Verdasco 6-4, 6-4 in their night match, running his record to 5-0 against his fellow Spaniard. In men’s doubles, second-seeded Mike and Bob Bryan, of Camarillo, were knocked out in the first round by Robert Lindstedt and Jarko Neiminen 6-4, 6-4. Roddick said having Federer, who has won the tournament the past three years, eliminated is both a plus and a minus. “I want to beat Roger. Obviously, it helps out everybody, it takes the toughest player out of the draw,” Roddick said. “But at the same time, I’m going to have to figure it out one of these times anyway. center_img INDIAN WELLS – Andy Roddick served 18 aces, oneclocked at 147 mph, on his way to a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory over Olivier Rochus in the third round of the Pacific Life Open on Monday.

DONEGAL SUPPORTERS FURIOUS WITH “BANDWAGON FANS”

first_imgDonegal supporters have taken to Twitter and Facebook to vent their fury at the so-called Donegal supporters who have labelled the team an ’embarrassment’ and have called for Jim McGuinness to step aside following Sunday’s crushing 16 point defeat to Mayo. Jim McGuinnessThe real Donegal supporters are furious with fans they call “Bandwagon fans” who only support the team when things are going well and are usually the first to criticise the players and management when results don’t go in their favour.Some of these so-called supporters posted on Facebook. “Well that was embarrassing, it doesn’t get much worse than that, total joke, systems are fine until they meet superior alternatives, we couldn’t adapt to what was happening, we were found out and teams now know how to beat us and beat us easily at that, changes needed now!!,” said one.“Players don’t care they’ve been partying all year and some speculation that partying has continued throughout the summer. Players looked flat and so did Jim, we couldn’t do anything to stop what was happening, surely one of the worst performances ever from All-Ireland champions, terrible stuff,” said another.“We’re back to the dark old days of leaving Croke Park with 20 minutes left to play getting hammered, how have we got so bad in such a short space of time, management and players need to take a long hard look at themselves.”Donegal supporters stunned by these posts that were becoming a recurring feature of content on their Facebook timeline responded. One wrote: “Some fans didn’t take long to get off the bandwagon, the only embarrassment is the fact they call themselves fans, the boys owe us nothing and they have been unreal for the last 3 years and they expect to get abuse of their own so-called supporters disgrace. This team will be back!!”Another wrote: “Some fans are a joke, couldn’t wait to get on Facebook and slate these boys that have brought pride to their county, they are all legends and need our support NOW when there hurting after such a defeat, people have short memories and people calling for Jim McGuinness to step away need to be taking away by the men in white coats #lunatics”Other posts include:“Donegal will be back, today was a bad day we’ll get over it you don’t win an All-Ireland in the fashion we did and become a bad team overnight, the bandwagon brigade should be ashamed of themselves, THESE BOYS OWE US NOTHING!! Proud to be from Donegal, Jim and the boys will be back next year. #Donegalforsam2014“Come on guys Jim took us from rock bottom to the summit within two years, the man is a genius and him and this group of players will be back as good as ever next year.” “Let’s be proud of their achievements over the last 3 years and support them now when they need it most.”DONEGAL SUPPORTERS FURIOUS WITH “BANDWAGON FANS” was last modified: August 6th, 2013 by John2Share 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:Bandwagon BrigadeCroke ParkdonegalFacebookFuriousResponseSupportersTwitterlast_img read more

MacLOCHLAINN IN TV3 DUEL WITH FINE GAEL TD

first_imgDONEGAL North East Deputy Padraig MacLochlainn was involved in a political duel with a Fine Gael TD on TV3 last night.Deputy MacLochlainn praised Limerick TD Kieran O’Donnell on Tonight with Vincent Browne for getting proposed cuts to disability payments reviewed.Deputy O’Donnell and local TD Joe McHugh had led a revolt against measures which would have seen severely disabled people lose their benefits. But the Sinn Fein TD accused Fine Gael: “In ancient China there was a form of capital punishment called ‘death by a thousand cuts’ and that is what you are doing to this country.”The Inishowen man said “fair play to you for fighting the cuts on disability” but said Fine Gael had failed to tax the rich, adding: “The top 1% in this country own 20% of the wealth and nothing was taken off them.”The budget, instead he said, was an attack on “lone parents, families and ordinary people.”© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights Reserved The 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/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comMacLOCHLAINN IN TV3 DUEL WITH FINE GAEL TD was last modified: December 7th, 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:DONEGAL North East Deputy Padraig MacLochlainnTonight with Vincent Brownelast_img read more

Kindhearted woman seeks to help Inishowen children with toy donations

first_imgA Kildare woman is hoping to pay forward some generosity she received by helping children in Inishowen.Orla Mayock suffered her own disaster when her Montessori Preschool in Maynooth was destroyed in a fire in May.Everything in the nursery was destroyed, but Orla received overwhelming kindness from people in her community who donated toys and educational materials. She had two van loads of goods in storage in the hope of using them again in September. However as the new term came along Orla was unable to reopen her school. She now wants to share the many donations she received with the children of Inishowen.Homes, schools and businesses faced unimaginable destruction in the flash flooding of August 22nd in Inishowen. After reading of the victim’s plight, Orla made contact with a local childminder in Moville to offer two van loads of toys.“It is such a lovely gesture even after her own disaster with her preschool,” said Angelina Mc Laughlin, who’s childminding business was unaffected by the flooding. Orla’s message to Angelina shares the story of her own misfortune and extends an offer of help to preschools and creches in Inishowen.Orla wrote: “I know the community here would be more than delighted to help and pass them on to ye if we could. Please let me know if anyone or indeed yourselves would benefit from the use of these toys.”Angelina has shared Orla’s message on social media in the hope of finding a school or playgroup which will benefit from the donations.

Cross-Laminated Timber Condos Planned in Portland

first_imgA Portland, Oregon, architectural firm is planning an eight-story condo building that would become the tallest structure in the country to be built with cross-laminated timber (CLT), an alternative to conventional steel-and-concrete construction.The building, called Carbon 12, was designed by PATH Architecture and recently won a $45,000 grant from Oregon BEST and the newly formed National Center for Advanced Wood Products Manufacturing and Design. The grant will help with acoustic and moisture testing.CLT is an emerging technology in which panels up to 10 feet tall, 60 feet long and 18 inches thick are made by gluing dimensional lumber together in perpendicular layers. Panels can be used for walls, floors and roofs. Proponents say the panels are an untapped resource of green building because they make use of short pieces of lumber and, unlike steel and concrete, sequester carbon.The material has proved popular in Europe, Oregon BEST said, but U.S. architects and builders have been stymied by requirements for added documentation, unusual modeling requirements and building code hurdles. And the panels are hard to get — an Oregon company, D.R. Johnson, is apparently the country’s only producer of panels certified for structural applications, at least so far.

What You Need to Know About Resolve 14’s Latest Media Page

first_imgLewis McGregor is a certified BlackMagic Design DaVinci Resolve Trainer.Looking for more information on Resolve? Check out these articles.How to Create a Realistic Lens Flare in DaVinci ResolveWorking with DaVinci Resolve 14’s Powerful Face Refinement Plug-inCheck Out The Newest Audio Features in Resolve’s Edit PageLearn How To Create A ‘Deakinizer’ Tilt-Shift Effect In ResolveMaster Resolve’s Built-In Film Grain with This Rundown The changes that come with software updates can take weeks to fully uncover. Here’s what’s different in DaVinci Resolve 14’s Media Page.When the new version of a popular piece of software gets released, everyone rushes to see the shiny new gizmos that will, most certainly, increase efficiency and output. However, it’s only over the course of the weeks that follow that you start discovering all the slight internal changes that roll out with the new version — to your benefit or detriment.Let’s have a look at some of the subtler changes you’ll find on the media page — and how you can use them or deactivate them.Live ViewIn previous versions, when you hovered over the thumbnail in the media page, you could scrub through a mini-preview of the clip within the thumbnail itself. In Resolve 14, this is slightly different. When you hover over the thumbnail, the thumbnail preview now jumps to the preview monitor.At first, this may seem like a great feature, and I’m sure to many it is. You get a quick preview, and you can see the content instead of squinting at the small thumbnail. However, it’s also the cause of much confusion. Here’s why.In the still below, we can see that clip P1011142 is the active clip because it’s outlined in red. However, in the preview monitor, we see a preview of P1011151 because the mouse cursor is currently over that clip in the media storage panel (circled in blue).  I might like what I see with P1011151 and decide I want to scrub through the clip more precisely, which I can do with the scrub button (circled in yellow).Yet, when I move the cursor away from the thumbnail to the scrub button, the preview monitor jumps back to the selected clip and not P1011151. That’s because the thumbnail we were hovering over wasn’t actually selected.Secondly, if your clips carry sound from the camera itself, the live view also plays back the audio. If you’re working with a DSLR and listening to its unfiltered camera sound, you’re only going to hear unpleasant, choppy sound bites.You may find this new feature useful, or an annoyance. If you find it beneficial to your media management, then there’s nothing you need to do as it’s on by default. If you find yourself annoyed by the constant sound stream and intrusive clips in the preview monitor, you can turn it off by clicking the ellipsis above the preview monitor and selecting Live View off.Open In New WindowOne of my previous quarrels with Resolve 12.5 was that you couldn’t open folders in new windows like you could in Premiere Pro. There may be a situation when I want to see what’s in both bins (folders). Previously, you could only open one bin at a time. In 14, that’s changed. If you right-click on a bin in the media pool and select open in new window, the bin will then pop out into its own window.The beauty here is that you can virtually stack as many panels as your screen can accommodate. If your master bin has three bins, Scene 1, Scene 2, and Audio, you can open all three bins at the same time and compare the media in each bin. Like browsing folders on Windows, you can move back a bin level and switch bins within the pop-out window itself.Create A Bin From A ClipCreating a bin isn’t a strenuous task. You right-click in the media pool or within the bin panel, select add bin, and you then drag the desired clips into the bin. This is perhaps one of the more straightforward tasks outside of clicking play. However, Blackmagic has been kind enough to make this job even quicker and more precise by offering the option to create a bin from a clip itself. Just right-click the clip, and select Create Bin From Clip. Upon choosing that function, the clip goes automatically into a new bin. You can also perform this task by selecting multiple clips.Double windowWhile this isn’t directly a media page feature, I do want to mention the ability to have a single preview window on the edit page. In previous versions of Resolve, the only way to have a single preview window was to open the effects panel open along with the metadata or inspector. This took up too much user interface space, and as a result, the source monitor collapsed — and you were left with just the timeline monitor. More of a defensive action rather than a direct user input. In Resolve 14, you can close the source monitor by hitting this button.last_img read more
