first_imgThe Donegal Road Safety Working Group are joining forces with the Ulster GAA to highlight road safety through the “Live to Play” campaign at the Tyrone V Donegal semi-final in Breffni Park this Saturday 8 June 2019.Too often communities across the country have been devastated by the death of a motorist, pedestrian or a cyclist in road traffic collisions.Now, with the help of Jamie Brennan, Road Safety Ambassador, one of the youngest players on the Donegal senior team, the DRSWG and CLG Dhún na nGall is urging all road users to please look out for each other stressing the need for safety on our roads. Games are as follows:2.45pm: Tyrone V Donegal Ladies5.00pm: Tyrone V Donegal – Ulster Senior Championship Semi-FinalBrian O’Donnell, Road Safety Officer said: “This is a great opportunity to remind all road users about their road safety responsibilities. “Far too many communities in Donegal have suffered the loss of a loved one as a result of a road traffic collision and we hope this initiative will help to prevent further deaths.“The support received from Maura McMenamin, Community, Health & Wellbeing Manager, Ulster GAA, CLG Dhún na nGall and Donegal player Jamie Brennan for this campaign, has allowed us to highlight that road safety is a shared responsibility and this responsibility must be the number one priority for all road users,” he added.“Road safety is everyone’s responsibility and ultimately it is up to all road users to be aware of the dangers and to treat the roads with the respect they deserve. Too often motorists take a risk and make the wrong decision. Is that risk worth a life?”Activities on the day will include the following: – Road Safety article in the match-day programme.  – A public announcement about the campaign at half-time of Senior game – Distribution of Live to Play (LTP) merchandise at FanZone and at other entrances, with the assistance of Donegal Youth Council volunteers. – Carrying out of large LTP jersey onto the pitch at half-time of the senior game (Donegal Youth Council volunteers) – Features with Jamie Brennan and Neamh Woods as Donegal & Tyrone LTP Ambassadors on social media in the run-up to the game this week.  – Highlight campaign on National and local media.Kevin Mills, Chairperson, County Health & Wellbeing Committee stated: “This road safety campaign is supported by Donegal GAA Health & Wellbeing committee in association with the Ulster Council, Donegal Road Safety Working Group and the Alcohol Forum.”Donegal’s GAA family get behind the road safety message ahead of busy weekend was last modified: June 5th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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:Donega Road Safety Working GroupDonegal GAAlast_img read more

Brown still out and Raiders offense has a tough day

first_imgNAPA — The Raiders continue to worry about things they can control, and it was clear Tuesday they have no control over Antonio Brown.Brown wasn’t at practice, and any rehabilitation on his blistered feet is being done out of sight. Brown, whose Instagram photo (since deleted) is the only clue as to why he’s not practicing, has been quiet on social media.After the Raiders had a less than crisp day offensively, coach Jon Gruden had little to say about Brown and when he might return.“I have …last_img read more

Every Sales Call, Every Opportunity, Every Time

first_imgOpportunities are too rare to take for granted. Engagement is a gift, and one that deserves your respect. A dream client with a compelling reason to change is a starting point for a competitive displacement. Every opportunity deserves your best effort, your very best shot.Every interaction with the people who are going to decide whether to work with you is an opportunity to create a preference. It can move them towards working with you. And it can just as easily be an interaction that moves your contacts to consider a competitor—or to move towards them.Believing that sales is business as usual, that it’s simply punching a clock and going through the motion, is taking opportunities too lightly. Not preparing for meetings, not determining the outcomes you need to achieve, and not planning to create compelling value for the contacts sitting across from you in a sales call is to take half measures.Without a real pursuit plan, a strategy to win, you leave yourself susceptible to a loss. Without spending the time to decide how you are going to win—and how you might lose—you risk losing where a win is possible. It takes effort to think, to strategize, to consider possibilities.The opportunity you are pursuing may not be available to you again in the future. It may be years—or decades—before your dream client decides to reevaluate their partner. A poor showing may make it more difficult to get another shot in the future. You need to be impeccable in every interaction, in every opportunity, every time. It is important to win, but if you are going to lose, you must lose having made it an impossibly difficult decision for your dream client.last_img read more

For 99 this batterypowered security camera fits over your front door

first_imgRemo+ In this day and age, a front-door security camera probably makes sense. However, unless you’re willing to wire it to your home network — a pretty big installation hassle — Wi-Fi connectivity can be problematic.Here’s a product I didn’t know existed until today, and that solves the Wi-Fi issues in a clever way. For a limited time, and while supplies last, eBay has the Remo+ DoorCam over-the-door security camera for $99 shipped. Original price: $199.See it at eBayThis is clever. The camera part sits on the outside of the door, while the batteries and other electronics are on the inside. That means you should have no problem getting a solid Wi-Fi signal.I have limited experience with security cameras (and no experience with this product), but I will say this: I tried a Blink XT outdoor camera just outside my front door and placed its sync module just inside the door. The connectivity was terrible, to the point where the XT’s batteries typically died in about a month and I constantly received no-signal errors from the app.CNET hasn’t reviewed the Remo+, but this preview from late 2017 provides a lot of details. Meanwhile, around 37 buyers on eBay collectively rated it 4.6 stars.The key thing to know is that, as with most products like these, cloud storage for video recordings isn’t free: It’ll cost you $3 per month or $30 annually. Also, the inside module is pretty large (in part because it has to accommodate three D batteries, which should last you about a year), so it looks like a brick on the back of your door.If you’ve tried one of these yourself, by all means hit the comments and share what you do or don’t like. I like the concept on paper, and $99 seems like a reasonable price.Your thoughts?Bonus deal: If you’d been hoping to snag an iPhone SE before Apple clears them out for good, here’s good news: For a limited time, the iPhone SE is back on stock, starting at $249.See it at AppleThat’s for the unlocked 32GB. You can also get it with 128GB for just $299. Although these are all to be found in Apple’s online clearance store, they’re new, not refurbished.Might there be a new entry-level iPhone coming later this year? It’s definitely on Scott Stein’s wish list. If that happens, SE prices could dip a little further still — though I kind of doubt it. I think if you want a small but capable iPhone, this might be the time to jump.CNET’s Cheapskate scours the web for great deals on PCs, phones, gadgets and much more.

EN ESPAÑOL Los refugios para evacuados en Texas no preguntarán por el

first_imgAPVarios residentes esperan en un colegio antes de ser evacuados en prevención ante la llegada de Harvey, el 25 de agosto de 2017, en Corpus Christi.  Residents wait at a high school gym before they are evacuated as the outer bands of Hurricane Harvey begin to make landfall, Friday, Aug. 25, 2017, in Corpus Christi, Texas. Harvey intensified into a hurricane Thursday and steered for the Texas coast with the potential for up to 3 feet of rain, 125 mph winds and 12-foot storm surges in what could be the fiercest hurricane to hit the United States in almost a dozen years.(AP Photo/Eric Gay)Las autoridades de Texas han asegurado que los refugios abiertos en todo el estado para acoger a evacuados del huracán Harvey no preguntarán por el estatus inmigratorio de las familias que lleguen a ellos.El gobernador de Texas Greg Abbott, republicano, dijo el viernes que el principal foco de Texas en este momento está en la seguridad y “la protección de la vida”.Harvey, un huracán de categoría 3 que según los pronósticos de los expertos tocará tierra el viernes en la noche, llega al estado justo una semana antes de que la llamada ley de ciudades santuario, o SB4, entre en efecto. La ley fue firmada por Abbott tras ser aprobada en la pasada Legislatura y autoriza a los efectivos de las fuerzas de seguridad a preguntar el estatus inmigratorio de los detenidos en una parada de tráfico e informar sobre este estatus a las autoridades de inmigración. También amenaza con llevar a la cárcel a jefes de policías locales y sheriffs de condados que no cooperen con las autoridades federales.Las mayores ciudades de Texas, incluidas Houston y Dallas, han pedido a un juez federal que pare la implementación de la ley, que entra en vigor el 1 de septiembre.Abbott también dijo que no se siente preocupado por la posibilidad de que los puntos de control de la Patrulla Fronteriza obstaculicen las tareas de evacuación cerca de la frontera entre Texas y México.
