DONEGAL LEAGUE – ALL THE RESULTS, REPORTS AND FIXTURES

first_imgDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUEREPORTS SUNDAYUlster Junior Cup Clonmany Shamrocks 0 Gweedore Celtic 1The Donegal Junior League will, once again, be represented in the Final of the Ulster Junior Cup. Despite a disappointing League campaign, by their standards, Gweedore Celtic have proved more than capable when Cup football is the order of the day. Pitted against Clonmany Shamrocks of the Inishowen League their task on Sunday was all the more difficult as they had to travel to contest the semi-final. From the opening exchanges and what followed it soon became clear that one goal may be enough to win the tie. This is exactly how it panned out and it was the men from An Screaban who got the all important strike. Recently awarded Player of the Month for January in the Donegal Junior League, Chris Porter played his part in the build up to the deciding goal. After making a run along the wing he crossed for Brendan Mc Geady who timed his run to perfection and calmly flicked the ball past the local custodian with ten minutes remaining in the fixture. Clonmany pushed for an equaliser and Gweedore had another chance in the closing minutes but John Walsh saw his effort saved by the home net minder. Gweedore will play Glengad F.C. in the Final in three weeks time.Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionLifford Celtic 2 St. Catherines 1Played in blustery conditions in Greenbrae Park, St Catherine’s attempted to de-rail Lifford’s title challenge. Chances during the first half were few and far between with both defences coming out on top. St Catherine’s hit the front with a freak goal on the half hour mark. A Jason Noctor shot was caught by the wind and was chested to the net from the edge of the box by Willie Hakkenun. Lifford protested for handball but to no avail, half time score 0-1.Lifford stormed out of the blocks early in the second half and grabbed their equaliser as Alan Gethins finished following a through ball from Lee White on 50minutes. Lifford should have hit the front on the hour mark but Gethins fluffed his lines from the penalty spot. The diminutive forward made amends for his miss, calmly finishing another through ball from Lee White on 75 minutes. White, Lifford’s number 1, almost got on the score sheet as he brought a fine save from his opposite number from a 60 yard free kick as full time approached. The result keeps Lifford in the hunt at least for another week. Battling performances from both teams.Kilmacrennan Celtic 0 Rathmullan Celtic 3Rathmullan Celtic cruised to a win over struggling Kilmacrennan Celtic at the Flagpole with Dara Patton and inspirational striker Eamonn Sheridan netting the goals for the Hoops as Kilmacrennan were reduced to ten men to compound their misery for the final five minutes at the Seaside.The Hoops now go into their final fixture away to Glenea United on April 27th knowing that a victory at Glasserchoo over Tom Coll’s troops will at least guarantee them a play-off with Lifford Celtic who won at home to St Catherine’s but need to win their game in hand away to Curragh Athletic in order to tie up proceedings with the Hoops at the top of the table. Paddy Burger and Paddy Sheridan’s table toppers dominated proceedings all afternoon with pass and move football orchestrated by Paddy in midfield with Eamonn Sheridan menacing up front. They only took the lead on 41 minutes when in form striker Dara Patton hit the net after a scintillating dribble past the Kilmacrennan defence, finishing off with a low strike into the bottom corner from the edge of the area. Chippy Barrett almost doubled the advantage on the stroke of half time following a goal mouth scramble but was denied by the outstanding Kilmacrennan keeper Mark Gallagher. In the second period Eamonn Sheridan was denied twice on two separate occasions by Gallagher when it seemed inevitable that goals were on the horizon. Kilmacrennan faced a daunting wind, which the Hoops took full advantage of, and struggled to make any impression on a resolute Hoops defence. The Seasiders continued to push for a second with Shea Coyle heading inches over from a corner on 62 minutes. Yet again the Kilmacrennan shot stopper Gallagher denied Eamonn Sheridan with a finger tip save on 70 minutes but the keeper could do nothing to stop Sheridan finally hitting the target on 73 minutes after super sub Ryan Connolly crossed in from the right wing on his introduction with Sheridan clinically scoring with a bullet header inside the area. The contest was over when referee Ed Moore awarded the Hoops a penalty following a push on Connolly from Gavin Gorman, who was shown red for dissent on 86 minutes. Eamonn Sheridan made no mistake from the resulting spot kick to round off a fine performance from the title chasing Hoops.Paddy and Eamonn Sheridan inspired the Hoops all afternoon with Mark Gallagher producing a master class in goal keeping for Kilmac. Referee: Ed MooreWatson Hire Division OneKeadue Rovers 1 Drumoghill F.C. 2 Keadue Rovers lost out to Drumoghill at Central Park in a crucial game on Sunday. The game was played in difficult conditions with a strong breeze throughout making play a bit broken overall. Keadue had the brighter opening against the wind with Adrian Hanlon forcing the away keeper into a good save on ten minutes. It was hard for either side to get a grip as the game went on. By the half hour mark Drumoghill were starting to take control and Richard Moore had a fine curling effort tipped on to the post by Keadue keeper Ben Boyle. Keadue went close on thirty three minutes when Corey Gallagher’s free kick almost caught the Drumoghill keeper off his line but it went just over the bar. A few minutes after this Drumoghill had a goal disallowed when their forward was caught offside having lobbed the keeper On forty minutes Keadue took the lead when good work from Adrian Hanlon led to the ball being flicked into the path of Corey Gallagher who finished well, beating the keeper to the ball. It stayed at 1-0 until half time. Into the second half and Drumoghill were quick out of the blocks with a shot over the bar on forty seven minutes. However Keadue had a great chance to finish the game on fifty two minutes when Corey Gallagher’s shot hit the post. Ben Boyle in the home goals made a couple of good saves and the home side had another good chance on sixty eight minutes when Adrian Hanlon’s shot was cleared off the line. Drumoghill were level though on seventy one minutes when following a goalmouth scramble Carlos Rodgers poked home at the near post after a couple of attempted efforts. A number of chances followed for Drumoghill and Keadue’s defence had to be on alert, doing well each time an attack came from Drumoghill. Corey Gallagher also had a half chance on eighty five minutes but just missed his touch at the far post. It looked like finishing in a draw but in the last minutes Drumoghill grabbed a winner when Richard Moore took down a ball and finished past the keeper with a left foot strike to cue great team celebrations.A good team effort from both sides. Drumoghill have one game left at home to Bonagee next Sunday while Keadue make the trip to Eany Celtic. Referee: Ronan Floyd.CT Ball Division TwoRaphoe Town 3 Deele Harps 1Raphoe Town came from behind in this local derby played at Deele College in Raphoe. Brian Breslin gave Deele Harps an early lead which they held until the interval. Raphoe Town then produced a purple patch which lasted for fifteen second half minutes and saw them score three without reply and in doing so win the match and climb into third position in the CT Ball Division Two table. Gavin Mc Brearty got the equaliser before Kieran Mc Gowan, under pressure from Jamie Gallagher, scored an own goal to put Raphoe into the lead. The busy Gallagher then secured the points when he scored from inside the box with the Deele keeper, Christopher Roulston, stranded. With only one round of matches remaining any one of three teams. Raphoe Town, Convoy Arsenal or Deele Harps could take third spot and get into the Promotion/Relegation play-off. After this match it is advantage Raphoe Town.WEDNESDAYWatson Hire Division OneCappry Rovers 5 Bonagee United 1The home team started very well and could have been one up in the first minute when Kevin Mc Glynn crossed for Alan Patton who saw his shot saved. Cappry took the lead in the 8th minute when Brian Lafferty’s corner was headed home by Stephen Mc Dermott. Bonagee came back into the game after this but the Cappry defence was well on top. In the 31st minute Stephen Mc Dermott added his and Cappry’s 2nd following a good passing move involving Brian Lafferty and Kevin Mc Glynn. Stephen Mc Dermott and Brian Lafferty were controlling the game for the home team from midfield. In the 34th minute Brian Lafferty played Alan Patton through who saw his shot saved by the keeper, Patton squared the rebound for Kevin Mc Glynn to tap home from 6 yards. Kevin Mc Glynn turned provider for Cappry’s 4th goal in the 40th minute when he split the defence for Aaron Kelly who finished well. Cappry started the second half brightly and added a fifth in the 54th minute when Stephen Mc Dermott played Alan Patton through and he made no mistake from the edge of the box. Cappry had a few more chances but failed to convert any of them with Conor Laverty going closest for the home side. Bonagee got a late consolation goal when Reece Shortt scored with a header at the near post. Best for Cappry: Stephen Mc Dermott, Brian Lafferty and Benny Kyle. Best for Bonagee: Sam Murphy. Referee: Liam Farren.SATURDAYOld Orchard Saturday Division OneFintown Harps AFC 1 Mulroy Celtic 3Mulroy broke the deadlock on the 20th minute, after great team-work Enda Coll found the net. Fintown pushed hard to get an equaliser and got their just rewards on the 31st minute when Christopher Mc Glynn found the net. The second half began with all to play for. Mulroy’s Enda Coll got on the ball from a mistake from the Fintown defence and had a pop at goal and made no mistake, putting the away side in front again. Seamus Coll then made it 3-1 shortly afterwards. Fintown continued to make scoring opportunities but all to no avail. Referee: Victor RaineyCastlefin Celtic Reserves11 Ramelton Mariners 0Right from the off Castlefin pressured the Ramelton defence with Gary McNulty hitting the post after one minute. The first of the goals came after four minutes, Paddy Dooher’s cross caused trouble and a Ramelton midfielder put the ball into the roof of his own net. Four minutes later Ronan Tourish doubled Castlefin’s lead when he had the simplest of tap-ins. Paddy Dooher then found Peter Bryson free at the back post and Bryson’s volley went straight into the bottom corner in 19th minute. A minute later James McMenamin got Castlefin’s 4th goal when he picked the ball up on the edge of the box and gave the Ramelton keeper, Kevin McCahill, no chance with his strike. Castlefin had numerous chances to make it five only for the Ramelton keeper to make a number of good saves. Ronan Tourish got Castlefin’s 5th and his second in 34th minute when he took on the Ramelton defence and slipped the ball under the keeper.The second half started much the same as the first when Castlefin began to run at Ramelton’s defence. Paddy Dooher made it six when he ran from the half way line and finished it himself into the bottom corner in the 55th minute. Ramelton continued to compete despite the score. Dooher got his second when he rounded the keeper to make it seven to Castlefin with 67 minutes gone. Minutes later Paddy Dooher’s corner found Keith Nelis in the box. Nelis was given time to take the ball down and fire home. Keith Nelis got his second when Peter Bryson sent him clear and he completed his hat-trick when Thomas Devlin crossed the ball into the box and Nelis was in the right place to tap home on 78 minutes. Peter Bryson finished the scoring and made it 11 for Castlefin when his 25 yard strike went straight into the top corner in the 90th minute. Best for Castlefin: Team Performance. Best for Ramelton: Kevin McCahill. Referee: Bran O’ KaneSt. Catherines Reserves 0 Glencar Celtic 1Glencar Celtic came to Emerald Park on Saturday looking for the point that would secure their first league title since they joined the league ten years ago. A youthful St. Catherines Reserves side didn’t crumble against their more experienced visitors and as they have done all season they represented their club with pride and direction in their play. A closely fought first half failed to produce any clear cut chances and it remained level at the break. The second half was played in similar fashion to the first with both teams committed but unable to breach each other’s defensive lines. The game’s only goal came on eighty five minutes and it is a goal that will go down in the history of Glencar Celtic football club. Christopher Malseed started the moved from the central back position. He played the ball to Paddy Collins on the left wing. Collins skipped past two St. Catherines’ players before centering to Stephen Browne who sent the ball to the St. Catherines net past a helpless Brian Smith who had done well throughout the game. The goal was enough to win the match and give the Letterkenny based club their first league title. For their part St. Catherines Reserves will look back on their first year in Saturday football with the knowledge that their conveyor belt of young players is continuing to produce talented players who will be capable of representing the club for many years to come. Referee: Martin Mc Anenny.Orchard F.C. 2 Erne Wanderers 1Erne Wanderers opened the scoring in this match played at Letterkenny Community Centre.Erne were well in control and went close again but Ward saw his shot saved. Orchard started to settle after this and Niall Bonner went close from close range. Orchard levelled the game on the half hour when Eddy Moore slotted home from inside the box after a nice lay-off from ChuckySweeney. The second half continued much the same with both teams working hard to get in front Orchard hit the Crossbar through Rory O’ Gorman and Erne also went close when Ward did the same. In the seventy fifth minute Orchard got their nose’s in front when Joe McCarron shot home from the edge of the box. Orchard withstood some intense pressure until the end to take all three points. Best for Orchard: Eddy Moore, Krissey McLaughlin and Nail Bonner. Best for Erne: Team Performance. Referee: Kevin LogueGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoCurragh Athletic Reserves 1 Arranmore United 3Curragh started of brightly and were unlucky to see a Marty Mc Laughlin’s shot narrowly missing the target. Arranmore took the lead after 35minutes when Daniel O’ Donnell scored. Curragh should have equalised but the Arranmore keeper saved well from Gary Heaney. Arranmore doubled their lead on 40 minutes from a well worked free kick from Danny Rodgers. The second half saw Curragh score early when the Dylan Irwin found Gary Quinn who played in Gary Heaney to place the ball past the Arranmore keeper from 18 yards. Curragh should have scored again but the Arranmore cleared well. Arranmore scored their 3rd from Chamajack Porski in injury time from a corner . Best for Curragh was Dylan Irwin..Team performance from Arranmore.Tullyvinney Rovers 2 Glenree United Reserves 4It was Glenree who did most of the running in the first half and should have been two or three up at half-time, only for some woeful finishing this game would have been over as a contest. Out of the blue however Tullyvinney scored from a corner through Renato. The second half was only a minute old when Glenree scored from a free kick after poor defending. Karol Mc Elhinney then put Glenree ahead when he beat the offside trap to drive home. Tullyvinney then made it all square when Mervyn White blasted home from twenty yards. Tullyvinney then pressed the self destruct button again to let Glenree in for two late goals, firstly Damien Neilis beat the offside trap again and chipped the Tullyvinney keeper. In the last minute a poor back pass gifted Karol Mc Elhinney his second goal to wrap up the points. Best for Glenree: Damien Neilis and Nicolas Neilis .Best for Tullyvinney: Meryvn White and Mc Kinney .Referee: Marty Mc GarrigleCranford United Reserves 7 Gweedore United Reserves 2Gweedore got off to a great start when John Paul McFadden broke free and finished well into the corner to put Gweedore one up after 10 minutes. Cranford responded well and in the 15th minute they were rewarded for their pressure when a Gweedore player put the ball in his own net. Cranford then went 2 – 1 up when Brendan Giles reacted quickest to score from inside the box. Gweedore made it 2-2 when a quick break saw Stephen O’Donnell scored at back post. With chances falling to both teams, Cranford took the lead when Philip Hegarty scored from a tight angle. After half-time Cranford started the game on top and got their 4th when Kyle Black turned his marker and ran from halfway line and then finishing past the Gweedore keeper. With Gweedore needing to take chances they were caught with Kyle Black getting another three goals with some fine finishing to make it 7 – 2. Martin Mc Bride, Darren Lynch and Philip Hegarty were best for Cranford. Team effort from Gweedore.DONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUERESULTSWEDNESDAY 02-04-2014Watson Hire Division OneCappry Rovers 5 v 1 Bonagee UnitedSATURDAY 05-04-2014Old Orchard Saturday Division OneFintown Harps

Scientocracy Is Coming

first_imgThe scientocracy C. S. Lewis feared is seriously being considered by left-leaning, abortion-promoting scientism communities.“Time for science to seize political power” blazes a headline on New Scientist by Michael Brooks.In your wildest dreams, could you imagine a government that builds its policies on carefully gathered scientific evidence? One that publishes the rationale behind its decisions, complete with data, analysis and supporting arguments? Well, dream no longer: that’s where the UK is heading.But why would they need to “seize” political power instead of use the methods of democracy?  Brooks used the either-or and loaded-words tactics of portraying anything but scientocracy as “hunch-based politics,” failing to define evidence in “scientific evidence,” a philosophically vexed notion.  His description of science fits the classic definition of scientism: the belief that the scientific method is the only sure pathway to truth.If a scientific government sounds appealing, it will not grant equal rights for all. The scientific community is largely controlled by leftists who abhor conservatives and embrace Darwinism, with its principle of survival of the fittest.  They also embrace liberal causes like unfettered abortion.  Look how leading science news outlets portrayed the 40th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized it:Live Science: “40 Years After Roe vs. Wade, Most Don’t Want Abortion Decision Overturned.”Science Daily:  “Abortions Are Safe When Performed by Nurses Practitioners, Physician Assistants and Certified Nurse Midwives, Study Suggests” [safe for whom?]Science Daily: “more young people — all of whom were born at least 20 years after the decision — identify as “pro-choice” rather than “pro-life”The last article provided some balance, saying that the results may obscure a deeper divide on the issue, and that young people don’t consider the potential of overturning Roe v. Wade as important as some other issues, like war or terrorism.  Still, Live Science employed typical leftist talking points, such as describing Roe v. Wade as the decision that “protected a woman’s right to have an abortion.”  They were not so concerned about the right to life for the unborn, or the millions of aborted babies since 1973 who never had a chance to experience their right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.Consequently, advocates of scientocracy may have less concern than conservatives about the lives of other humans: the elderly, the mentally ill, the disabled.   Ironically, they will promote the rights of criminals to escape punishment on the grounds that evolution made them do what they do.  Meanwhile, their idealistic schemes of protecting the planet will undoubtedly severely weaken individual rights and national economies.C. S. Lewis respected science, but he deeply feared a scientocracy: scientists aggrandizing themselves with their presumptive authority to grasp political power.  He portrayed the potential consequences in his dystopic novel, That Hideous Strength, based on real ideologies and developments underway around World War II.  Those developments have not slept in the interim.Update 1/22/2013: On the 40th anniversary of Roe v Wade, another pro-abortion “scientific” article biased against pro-lifers appeared on Medical Xpress.Update 1/23/2013: New Scientist’s editors inserted scientism into gun control.  “It is time for the scientific evidence to trump ideology,” the article began, continuing the false dichotomy that science offers “evidence-based” guidance, while gun rights advocates are motivated by money and greed without evidence.  The article assumes from the beginning that governmental control is the solution.  PhysOrg played games with statistics, advocating political policy on a website presumably concerned with science.Read The Magician’s Twin: C. S. Lewis on Science, Scientism and Society so that you can be forewarned of what is coming and know how to stand up against it before it’s too late.  Another possible outcome, though, since scientists tend to take the liberal line of appeasing terrorists rather than fighting them, is that the members of the scientocracy will all be beheaded, leaving their weakened countries to suffer under rule of Islamic tyrants.  Pick your poison.

Semi-Private Sharing: YouTube Gets Unlisted Videos

first_imgTags:#news#NYT#Video Services#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Google just announced that it will now offer a new option for YouTube users who want to share their videos with a large group of viewers without having to make the video either private or fully public. Currently, there is a 25-person cap on YouTube’s private sharing option, which makes this feature unusable for anybody who wants to share a video with a larger class or club, for example. Now, YouTube users will be able to choose an option that is already a standard feature on many other content sharing sites: unlisted videos. Unlike private videos, where users need to invite others so that they can see these videos (and to make things even more complicated, these users also need YouTube accounts), unlisted videos can be viewed by anybody who has access to the private link. These videos aren’t indexed in YouTube’s search engine and won’t appear on a user’s personal channel. Related Posts frederic lardinois Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… As Google notes in its announcement today, it’s worth noting that these videos can still be viewed by anyone with access to the link. If you are worried that your friends will share a video on Twitter, Facebook and their blogs, then using the ‘unlisted’ option is probably not a good idea. last_img read more

APL Further Cuts Fleet CO2 Emissions in 2017

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: APL Singapore-based shipping company APL managed to cut its carbon dioxide emissions per transported container per kilometer by 50.7% in 2017, compared to its base level in 2009. The company said that the achievement marks APL’s eighth consecutive year of improved environmental performance.“We are proud to raise the bar in reducing the carbon footprint of our fleet operations once again. APL’s concerted efforts to improve our environmental efficiency year after year underscore our commitment to a greener and more sustainable maritime industry,” Dennis Yee, APL Global Head for Safety Security and Environment, said.While APL saw almost a 3% improvement from the 48% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions per transported container per kilometer in 2016, APL-operated vessels also recorded fuel savings of almost 5% in 2017, compared to a year ago.The achievements are attributable to APL’s holistic approach in driving operational efficiencies, fleet and voyage optimisation, as well as the deployment of a fuel-efficient fleet of vessels.Coupled with route optimisation systems that have been installed onboard its vessel fleet, APL saw ship bow modifications and retrofitting of propellers to vessels that aided in minimising wave resistance and improving propulsion efficiency respectively.Navigating forward, the ocean carrier said it has resolved to reduce carbon dioxide emissions per TEU transported by 30% between 2015 and 2025, a target set by its parent group, the French shipping major CMA CGM.last_img read more

TCE earnings for were USD 19.1 million, up from USD 9.3 million seen in the previous quarter.The company managed to shrink its net loss to USD 8.9 million from a net loss of USD 19.3 million in the second quarter.last_img read more

City of Fort St John gets approval to sign firefighting agreement with

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The City of Fort St. John has gotten approval from the Peace River Regional District Board to sign an agreement to provide fire protection services to the consortium responsible for building a major component of the Site C dam.According to a letter to the PR Board from Protective Services Director Jim Rogers, the City was approached earlier this year by the Aecon-Flatiron-Dragados-EBC partnership – which won the contract to build the generating station and spillways at Site C – to provide the consortium with fire protection and rescue services for a five-year term while the component of the dam is being built.He said that staff began preliminary discussions in March, and in late May began negotiations with AFDE about the range of services that would be provided, along with the pricing. The Fort St. John Fire Department is the only fire department north of Prince George that is listed as a rescue provider under the BC Construction Safety Alliance Technical High Angle Rope Rescue Program that can provide the Tower Crane & high angle rescue services that were being requested by AFDE.Rogers explained that the proposed agreement is similar to those that the City signed with ATCO and Tembec, under which the Fort St. John Fire Department currently provides fire protection services to the worker accommodation camp at Site C, and formerly provided services to Chetwynd Mechanical Pulp.In a closed meeting on June 25th, Fort St. John City Council approved a motion to have a letter sent to the PRRD Board asking the Board’s permission to enter into an agreement with AFDE, similar to what was previously done when the City entered into agreements with ATCO and Tembec.However, at the PRRD’s Board meeting on June 28th, Chair and Electoral Area ‘C’ Director Brad Sperling voiced opposition to the request, citing concerns about the agreement’s impact on the Mutual Aid Agreement between the City and the Regional District.During the discussion, Sperling stated that his opposition was based on a lack of notice from the City about the agreement, and that there was nothing in the letter from Fort St. John’s Acting City Manager David Joy that addressed the Mutual Aid Agreement.Despite a request from Director Byron Stewart, the PRRD Board declined to hear Fort St. John Fire Chief Fred Burrows – who was present at the meeting – come forward to explain the request. The Board then voted against granting permission to the City. At last Thursday’s meeting, the Board then discussed Rogers’ letter that further detailed the proposal, which would see the PRRD compensated for the Charlie Lake Fire Department attending to assist with a fire if the Fort St. John Fire Department were called out to a fire at the dam construction site.Footage from both Board meetings can be found at the two links below.http://prrd.bc.ca/board/agendas/2018/2018-20-247804065/AGENDA.htmlhttps://prrd.wistia.com/medias/6tjj92nieglast_img read more
