Watch: Declan Bonner pays tribute to Manus Kelly on day of ‘mixed emotions’

first_imgDONEGAL SENIOR football manager Declan Bonner paid a touching tribute to the late Manus Kelly last night.As Bonner led Donegal back into Donegal having been crowned Ulster champions yesterday, the Donegal manager told of the mixed emotions in the group following the tragic death of Glenswilly man Kelly.Kelly lost his life as a result of a horror crash as he competed in this year’s Donegal International – an event he won in each of the previous three years. News filtered through just over an hour before throw-in in the Ulster final.Tributes have been pouring in for the popular county councillor, businessman, rally driver and county councillor.“I knew Manus Kelly very well,” Bonner said at the homecoming in Donegal Town.“It was very, very difficult, I have to say.” Declan Bonner during Sunday’s Ulster final.

News of the tragedy was conveyed to the Donegal dressing room after their win over Cavan in the Ulster final and the mood was sombre as they processed the news.Murphy did not attend the homecoming with vice-captain Hugh McFadden carrying the Anglo-Celt into Donegal Town and addressing the crowd.Bonner said: “The players were kept away from it.“Manus wasn’t just a rally person. He went into politics and he was a real, massive Donegal GAA follower. It was difficult to keep it from the Glenswilly guys, who were very close to him. “There is a feeling of mixed emotions. Last year, it was great to be back in charge personally and win against Fermanagh.“There are mixed emotions for the group, for the Kelly family, who are massive Donegal GAA followers.”Yesterday morning, MK Rallying’s Facebook page posted a picture of Manus Kelly and his co-driver Donall Barrett holding a Donegal flag with the message: ‘Best of luck to Donegal today from Manus Kelly and Donall Barrett💚💛’This evening, the Donegal County Board released the following statement:  “Our sympathies are with the family of Manus Kelly, his friends and his close associates in CLG Gleann tSúilí following his tragic death yesterday.“Donegal reveres its sporting hero’s and Manus was certainly one of those. While motor rallying was his chosen sport he also had a special association with the GAA through his involvement with Glenswilly as a player, manager and coach and he was a quiet and unsung, but generous, sponsor of the county team.“He was one of life’s gentlemen and will be sorely missed by all. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.” Advertisement Watch: Declan Bonner pays tribute to Manus Kelly on day of ‘mixed emotions’ was last modified: June 26th, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare 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:2019 Ulster SFCDeclan BonnerDonegal TownFanad HeadglenswillyHugh McFaddenManus KellyMichael Murphylast_img read more

Best BigCo of 2009

first_imgTags:#2009 in Review#Features#web#Year in Review In one of ReadWriteWeb’s longest-running traditions, every year we review the top Internet companies and their impact over the past 12 months. Today we’re announcing the 6th annual Best BigCo, a.k.a. big Internet company. Next week we’ll announce Best LittleCo and Most Promising Company.In 2008 the Best BigCo went to Apple, due largely to the iPhone and App Store. Facebook won in 2007, Google in 2006 and 2004, and Yahoo! in 2005. Who will be Best BigCo of 2009? Will Apple be the first company to win it two years running? Will Google win the honor for a 3rd year? How about Facebook, which grew significantly this year. Let’s find out…Best BigCo of 2009 The ReadWriteWeb team has chosen Google as our Best BigCo of 2009! Google last won it in 2006 and this is the third time we’ve honored the Mountain View company.Google is without question the predominant Internet company of our time; in large part because it continues to innovate and stay one step ahead of its competition.In our top 100 products list for 2009, seven Google products made the cut:Android platformGoogle App EngineGoogle Apps Google Chrome Google Maps Google Search Options and Rich Snippets Google VoiceAnd we didn’t even include Google Wave, its biggest launch of the year. We think Wave has a lot of potential, but it’s clearly at the experimental stage still. The web browser Chrome was probably the Google product that had the biggest impact this year. Launched in late 2008, Chrome still only holds a small share of the browser market and doesn’t offer a stable version for OSX or Linux yet. However it has already changed the browser market. As we wrote in our Top 10 Consumer Web Apps of 2009 review, Chrome’s relentless focus on speed helped to reignite the browser wars, and is changing the way developers and Google’s competitors think about browsers.Chrome is also the basis for Google’s upcoming Chrome OS, designed for netbooks – a growing fad in computers. So expect to see a lot more of Chrome in 2010.Runners-Up: Apple, Facebook It’s been another good year for Apple and its iPhone platform. The iPhone is the leading smartphone in the market and the App Store now features over 100,000 applications. This year, as we mentioned in our Top 10 Web Platforms of 2009 review, Apple extended the SDK with version 3.0 of the iPhone OS. The updates included better support for 3D gaming, augmented reality apps, easier access to maps, in-app purchases and support for push notifications. With these kinds of improvements, we expect Apple to continue its success on the mobile Web in 2010 – despite increasing competition from Google’s Android platform.Facebook had a stellar year too, passing the 300 million active user mark in September. It also continued to add features to the site, ranging from vanity URLs to a new sharing widget and a focus on real-time updates of its users’ news streams. Facebook’s user base is increasingly diverse, and it is now clearly the number one social network in the world, leaving MySpace in its dust. What’s more, Facebook’s user base is now bigger than the population of all but three countries in the world.Honorable Mentions: Microsoft, Amazon, AdobeWhile Microsoft continued to struggle with its Windows Live brand, it did come out with at least one compelling new product in 2009. Until earlier this year, Google didn’t have any serious competition in the search market. But with the launch of Microsoft’s Bing in July, users suddenly had a new choice of search engine. Bing bills itself as a “decision engine” and its market share has climbed steadily over the last few months. Microsoft keeps adding interesting new features like visual search, hover previews, integrated Twitter search and a smart integration of some of Wolfram Alpha’s most compelling features.We also recognized Windows Azure, Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, among our Top Products of 2009. Amazon had another good year in 2009. Its Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) was one of our top 100 products this year. However Amazon had the most impact this year with a piece of hardware: its e-book reader, the Kindle. In May, Amazon unveiled the Kindle DX, featuring a 9.7-inch display that is about two-and-a-half-times larger than the Kindle 2. November was Amazon’s best month ever for Kindle sales, and, according to the company, the Kindle is the “most wished for, the most gifted, and the #1 bestselling product across all product categories on Amazon.” Very few Web platforms have the cross-platform reach of Adobe AIR. It allows developers to create one application and run it on all of the major operating systems. This year Adobe launched AIR 2, which now allows developers to access mass storage devices, drag-and-drop support for remote files and rudimentary support for P2P networking. In addition, AIR 2 enables developers to use the multi-touch capabilities of modern screens.Also Rans Unfortunately, the less said about Yahoo!, AOL, Mozilla, eBay – the better. It hasn’t been a great year for any of them. Yahoo! struggled gamely and impressed us with its YQL (Yahoo Query Language) and SearchMonkey. But it is far from the Internet force it was in 2005, when we named it our Best BigCo. Yahoo still has a wide reach and is very popular amongst mainstream audiences, but it just isn’t the force it once was.AOL has resorted to becoming a content farm in order to compete, eBay has squandered a valuable asset in Skype, and Mozilla – while continuing to innovate – has been hurt by Google’s Chrome browser entering the market.Now let us know your thoughts. Do you think that Google deserves the Best BigCo of 2009?Ed: Thanks Frederic Lardinois, one of our writers whose year-end posts I liberally quoted from to create this article!

Contentious IOC meetings kick off with Olympics set to open

(AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — IOC President Thomas Bach called it “a lively and spirited debate.”That’s an understatement.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Pound then asked for time to respond. And he shot back.“I think it’s extremely inappropriate to turn this in to an ad hominem (a character attack),” Pound said. “The fact I have a different opinion from others … does not mean I am not entitled to the opinion. I think it’s very unfortunate in a collegial gathering like this to suggest that I am not entitled to give that opinion.”As Pound and Werthein clashed, 32 Russian athletes on Tuesday filed yet more appeals with the Court of Arbitration for Sport seeking spots in the games. The 32 failed to pass IOC vetting and were not invited.The CAS decision is expected on Wednesday.“We’re not fearful in any way,” IOC spokesman Mark Adams said. “We wait for the decision tomorrow. We’re very confident with the stance we’ve taken.”The IOC expects 168 Russian athletes who have been deemed “clean” to participate in the games under the banner of “Olympic Athletes from Russia,” absent any national flags, uniforms or national logos.The contentious issue of the Russian ban, and the way it was handled by the IOC, threatens to overshadow the games themselves with 3,000 athletes expected to compete.“We have to change and learn from this difficult situation,” Bach said.The IOC will hope to shift the focus to good news as North Korean and South Korean athletes compete alongside each other under a symbolic deal aimed at easing tension on the Korean peninsula.

Murder accused dies in gunfight 5 hours after killing woman

first_imgGunfight IllustrationA murder accused was killed in what police called a gunfight with them in Bakalia area of Chattogram early Sunday, just five hours after he allegedly killed a woman.The gunfight took place in Bolirhat area of Bakalia around 3:15am, said Shah Md Abdur Rouf, additional deputy commissioner (south) of Chattogram Metropolitan Police.Deceased Shah Alam, 32, was involved in the murder of Bubli Akhter, 27, in Bolirhat area, police claimed.The law enforcement said Bubli, mother of two daughters, came to her father’s home in Bolirhat area two days before the incident. Shah Alam and several other young men attacked them around 10:00pm Saturday due to previous enmity with Hasan, a local youth and friend of Bubli’s younger brother Rubel.They pointed firearms at Rubel and asked him Hasan’s whereabouts. When Rubel said he did not know anything about Hasan, they tried to shoot him. But Bubli intercepted them and a bullet hit her on the head, which killed her on the spot, police added.Abdur Rouf told Prothom Alo, “A case was filed in connection with the murder on that night. CCTV footages of a nearby house showed Shah Alam coming out of the house with two pistols in two hands. He fled the scene while shooting. All of the other youths were carrying arms.”“Acting on a tip-off, police conducted a drive in Bolirhat area to arrest Shah Alam. Sensing presence of the law enforcement, his cohorts opened fire on police, forcing them to retaliate. At one stage police recovered a body. Papers in his pocket confirmed his identity,” he added.Police recovered two pistols from the scene and sent the body to Chittagong Medical College Hospital morgue.Two more incidents of killing took place in Chattogram on Friday night.According to the human rights organisation, Ain o Salish Kendra (ASK), at least 421 people were killed in alleged gunfights, crossfire or shootouts with the law enforcement agencies in 2018.In January and February of 2019, the number of such killings was at least 50, the rights body said on its website.last_img read more

Graziano Under Fire Over Sex Abuse Allegations

first_imgPublic housing residents hold up signs prior to demonstrating outside the offices of the Housing Authority of Baltimore City on Oct. 26. (Photo by Roberto Alejandro)A union official has been fired from his job with the Housing Authority of Baltimore City (HABC) in what he, advocates, and residents are calling a retaliatory firing for daring to speak openly about the conditions and sex abuse at public housing properties.On Oct. 26, HABC executive director Paul Graziano met with two public housing residents, Rochelle Barksdale and Camay Owens, and the co-director and head organizer for Communities United, John Comer, who has been organizing public housing residents since 2012. The residents presented Graziano with a list of demands that included the extermination of rats, mice, and other pests, the replacing of broken windows and door locks, as well as the repair of broken heating units before the winter cold fully sets in.At a press conference after the meeting, Comer added that residents also demand that Lucky Crosby, health and safety officer for AFSCME Local 647, and, until Oct. 21, a maintenance mechanic at public housing properties for HABC, be reinstated after he was let go in what many are calling a retaliatory firing over Crosby’s at times public outspokenness regarding the deplorable living conditions at public housing properties in Baltimore as well as the sex abuse taking place there.Crosby arrived at his home on the evening of Oct. 21, to find a termination notice from HABC taped to his front door. Crosby had been suspended as of Oct. 9 over a verbal altercation with another maintenance worker that took place on Oct. 5, but which union officials, including AFSCME Local 647 president Anthony Coates, had called a pretext to punish Crosby for his outspokenness over the living conditions and allegations of sexual abuse at Gilmor Homes and other HABC properties.The {AFRO} has reported widely on both the living conditions and claims of sex abuse at Gilmor since last July. According to one public housing resident who preferred not to be named but was demonstrating outside the HABC office building as Barksdale, Comer, and Owens met inside, “I don’t have heat. I have to use my oven to warm up my house; we have blankets and everything. They say I can’t use my dryer, I’ve gotta unplug my microwave. I shouldn’t have to do those things if the wiring [in the unit] was appropriate.”Another demonstrator said her name was Stephanie but did not want her last name used and who also says she lives in Gilmor, said she was promised a larger unit within three months of moving in. That was three years ago, and the problems inside her unit have forced her grandchildren to take residence with their other grandparents.“When it’s in the winter, it’s like being outside. Children should not have to double up on quilts [in]side the house. The window’s coming out [of the frame]. I’ve been trying to get them to fix my unit since I’ve been there, and I’ve been there going on three years, and I didn’t know this has been going on there for years,” said Stephanie.The residents and organizers who met with Graziano on Oct. 26 were hoping to receive a firm timeline for the completion of all repairs in the public housing units, but said they did not receive one. Comer also said that the sex abuse allegations were discussed at the meeting, though Graziano was limited in his ability to comment due to the lawsuit filed in late September by attorneys Cary Hansel and Annie Hirsch, on behalf of what are now 11 female public housing residents over the abuse.Crosby spoke at the press conference that took place after the meeting, addressing the living conditions in Baltimore’s public housing.“I have worked in every development in housing, and they all are horrible because of the conditions that are allowed to fester.  You have low staff, you have no moral among the [maintenance workers], you have no materials [for repair].  In cases you’re putting a band-aid on a bullet wound, you cannot have that,” said Crosby, adding later, regarding the sex abuse claims and HABC’s response, “If they were Caucasian women, would we allow this?”last_img read more

Announcing TypeScript Roadmap for January 2019 June 2019

first_imgToday, Daniel Rosenwasser, the Program Manager of TypeScript, released a roadmap to be followed for TypeScript starting from January 2019 to June 2019. This roadmap outlines the priorities that the team will be focussing on, over the next 6 months, which will serve as a set of guidelines to accomplish the listed goals by June 2019. These goals (as listed on GitHub) include: Types on every desk, for every JS developer Using strong tooling to increase productivity Improved Approachability and UX More Community engagement Better Infrastructure and engineering systems In order to achieve these goals, the Typescript team will focus on tweaking the following domains: #1 Language design and innovation Under this domain, the team will focus on the core ‘type’ system. They plan to enable popular JS patterns in a type-safe way, while also proving relationships between types. The latter simply means generalizing patterns between type operators and encoding them in type relationships. They also plan to implement ECMAScript features with stricter settings. In terms of Committee representation, their goals include prioritizing forward compatibility with proposals/features adopted in the earlier stages of developing TS. They also want to be involved in other features like Class fields (public and private), decorators, ES/CJS module interop, and much more to ensure that ECMAScript grows to ‘make a developers’ life easier’. #2 Developer productivity tools and integration The team plans to introduce ‘quick fixes’ that will be proactive in nature. This includes a class of code modifications and fixes that are applicable, which will be useful for teaching users about language features and patterns, making it more approachable to work with TypeScript/ JavaScript. Proactive fixes also imply that TypeScript can analyze code and can surface suggestions and code changes for improvements rather than just fix an error. This is in contrary to most of the current quick fixes that are reactive in nature and are created and triggered after a user has seen a definite error. They also plan on focussing on more targeted workflows like ‘migration’. They will come up with ways to ease migration to TypeScript and typed JavaScript to improve the process of adding types. In the field of ‘Linting’, the team noticed architectural issues with the way TSLint rules operate that impacted performance. They will be working towards fixing these issues. Since ESLint already has the more-performant architecture, the TS team will be focusing on leveraging ESLint rather than duplicating work. For scenarios that ESLint currently doesn’t cover, they will be sending contributions to bring ESLint’s TypeScript support to parity with TSLint. To build co-located TypeScript projects, the team will be making improvements such as functionality for automatically swapping projects in and out to save memory. They will also investigate the emit-time regressions seen in the last few versions of TS. Finally, they plan to investigate surfacing language service operations on the command line. #3 Education and UX The team says that the documentation provided for TypeScript needs to be improved for a more seamless learning experience. They will be working on a new version of the handbook with  three different parts: Tailored introductions for the core handbook The core handbook for everyone Reference pages (eg. appendices) They believe the segmentation of this documentation will help developers from all backgrounds–right from complete novices to experienced developers–to learn TypeScript without any hassle. They will also be improving their error UX to make it more ‘approachable’ for inexperienced users. Their website will also be undergoing an upgrade along with the examples mentioned on the same. #4 Community investment TypeScript’s ‘DefinitelyTyped’ is the 10th most popular open source project on GitHub. The team will be focussing on weekly PR rotations–where members of the TS team review external PRs to DefinitelyTyped–and DefinitelyTyped’s surrounding infrastructure such as the types publisher, dtslint, and dt-mergebot. They also plan to ease the process of external contributions to the documentation and investigate improving rich editing experiences. This year, users can also expect more public talks, meetups and blog posts on TypeScript. #5 Team Infrastructure The team will be focussing on faster builds by converting them to avoid bootstrapping themselves outside of CI, adding/migrating lint rules, and much more. This will, in turn, improve TS stability, productivity, and ease of contribution. Besides this, they also plan on providing internal guidance on TypeScript-first API designs, assisting internal partner teams with best practices for projects and addressing major Microsoft-internal build regressions. You can head over to TypeScript’s GitHub page for more insights on this announcement.

This woman used an Ikea hack to outsmart NYCs nobigdogsonsubway rule

first_imgThis woman used an Ikea hack to outsmart NYC’s no-big-dogs-on-subway rule Share Tuesday, June 4, 2019 NEW YORK CITY — Everyone’s got a favourite Ikea hack, whether it’s transforming a planter into a chandelier or turning a plain desk into a stylish bar cart. But one woman’s hack may have trumped them all after she was spotted on a New York City subway platform.To get around a pesky city policy that permits only dogs small enough to fit in a bag to travel on trains, the unidentified woman used an Ikea blue bag – yes, that Ikea blue bag – to get her dog onto the subway.But even though she could have carried her dog in the bag (everyone knows how roomy those blue bags are), the woman did one better – she cut out four leg holes in the bottom of the bag so that her dog could walk freely on their own.Genius!my favorite lifehack is NYC residents who follow the “your dog must fit in a bag to ride the subway” rule on the slimmest technicalities possible pic.twitter.com/O7ZTprwNWk— Christopher Sebela (@xtop) June 1, 2019Writer Christopher Sebela witnessed the woman’s stroke of genius and snapped a quick pic while waiting for the train. He then tweeted the photo and wrote: “My favourite lifehack is NYC residents who follow the “your dog must fit in a bag to ride the subway” rule on the slimmest technicalities possible.”More news:  Virgin Voyages de-activates Quebec accounts at FirstMates agent portalThe photo is reminiscent of another pic taken earlier this year of a man waiting for the subway with his shaggy dog casually slung over his shoulder in a big burlap sack. Despite his attempt at convincing the train conductor that the sack was, in fact, an extra-large tote bag, the conductor refused to let him board.No word as to whether the woman and her dog ended up making it on the train, but Ikea hacks very rarely let us down so the odds are good!Saw this guy arguing with an @MTA conductor about bringing his dog on the subway.
