We will have three trainings each day, team talks and I believe this will help us achieve the target of being a strong team,” Kerr told Capital Sport.Gor had initially planned to have their pre-season camp outside the country but have since vacated the plans owing to the exit of their sponsors which has left their bank accounts yawning, according to officials.While in Narok, Gor will play friendly matches against league new boys Wazito and Kakamega Homeboyz on top of two other locals clubs.Kerr says he has been impressed with the spirit shown by his players in the last one week of training and is optimistic as they take the gear higher for the next 12 days, he is going to see more hunger and determination.“I came in here in July and had to work with what was there which we did well. Now I have the opportunity to start fresh and I am really looking forward to the new season. I know the expectation on me is higher than last year and I am prepared for it,” said the British coach.Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr during a training session at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on September 7, 2017.Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBULUHe has likened the team to English premier League runaway leaders Manchester City who are constantly under pressure, but says he trusts his squad not to crack.“Everybody wants to beat Manchester City now and I think that’s the same with us. It becomes harder but I believe that will bring out the best in us,” the tactician further noted.Biggest on his mind as the year begins is the CAF Champions League with Gor kicking off their campaign at home to Equatorial Guinean side Leones Vegetarianos Fútbol Club and if they win they will square out with the winner between Esperance du Tunis and Mauritania’s ASAC Concorde in the first round.“I am very positive in this and I believe that it is a possibility. I have watched a lot of African football and I know that in our best element, it is an achievable target to get to the group stages. I am just hoping that the players can have as much belief as me,” Kerr noted.He added; “We can match anyone in the continent and beat them. I think we demonstrated that very well with Everton.”Meanwhile, two of Kerr’s core players from 2017 might not be part of his team this season. Kenneth Muguna and skipper Musa Mohammed are both linked with a move to KF Tirana in Albania.While Mohammed’s contract lapsed last week and leaves as a free agent, Muguna’s move has been topsy-turvy as there hasn’t been an agreement between Tirana and Gor with the player still remaining with three years on his contract.Newly signed Gor Mahia midfielder Kenneth Muguna controls the ball in training under pressure from Meddie Kagere at the Camp Toyoyo Ground in Nairobi’s Jericho Estate on January 12, 2017.PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluThere had been an alleged 40,000-dollar transfer fee agreement, but nothing official as yet.Kerr is however against the move to the Albanian league, though he is more or less resigned to the fact that both players will leave.“To be honest I don’t think I will bank on Kenneth, he seems to have his mind made up already. Musa has been at the club for over five years and I think it is good for him to seek a new challenge. But to be honest, with all due respect I don’t think Albania is an upgrade,” the outspoken tactician further noted.But he is content with the kind of squad he has put together, saying they will compete for titles even with the exit of the two.Gor kick off their season on January 28 with the season opening Super Cup against arch rivals AFC Leopards before switching attention to the Champions League.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

SKIPPER OF ARRANMORE FERRY IS BANNED FOR DRINK-DRIVING

first_imgThe skipper of the Arranmore Ferry has been fined €350 and disqualified from driving for two years for drink-driving.Letterkenny court.James Bonner, 62, appeared at Letterkenny District Court yesterday to face the charge which relates to an incident on October 20th 2012. Gardai told the court they stopped a car at Tully Mountain, Ballyare, outside Letterkenny at around 9.10pm.Officers said they suspected the man who was driving the BMW car had consumed alcohol and asked him to undertake a breath test which he failed.Solicitor for Mr Bonner, Gerard Doyle told the court that his client was a very well-known local character who was involved in maritime activities and was involved in many local rescue missions.“He has brought nothing but positivity to the area,” added Mr Doyle.He said he suffered from a hiatus hernia and that he had suffered from reflux which may or may not have affected the breath test on the evening.Mr Bonner had worked on the ferry for 12 years and no had no previous convictions for any offence.Mr Doyle said the accused did not live in Burtonport and from where the ferry sailed and needed his car to get to work.He asked for a postponement of the mandatory disqualification until after the summer season.Judge Paul Kelly fined Mr Bonner €350 and disqualified him from driving for two years but deferred the ban until October 7th.SKIPPER OF ARRANMORE FERRY IS BANNED FOR DRINK-DRIVING was last modified: April 7th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:Arranmore Ferrycourtdonegaldrink drivingGardaiJames Bonnerlast_img read more

LADIES GAELIC ANNUAL CONVENTION COMING TO DONEGAL IN 2017

first_imgTHE LADIES Gaelic Football Association will hold its annual convention in County Donegal next year.Delegates in Sligo this weekend were told the destination of next year’s convention.Earlier Donegal county chair Hugh Devenney, from the Four Masters club, was reappointed as national culture and language officer. There were also some rules changes and defeated motions at the convention in Sligo.Amended rules will see the clock stopped at games for the administering of yellow and red cards.The advantage rule has now been extended – and comes in from April – referees allowing a five second advantage to the fouled player in games.A motion extending the kick of 45m from the hands to adult football however was defeated. Injury fund payments will remain at a maximum of €5,000, delegates agreed.A new rule also means that all adult players must wear gum shields at games from 2017. Underage players are already covered by the rule.There is another new rule about players who wear glasses.“Players who require corrective eyewear and want to wear glasses to participate in Ladies Gaelic Football must wear glasses that use durable unbreakable polycarbonate for the lens and have durable unbreakable frames as advised by an optometrist to play gaelic games”. LADIES GAELIC ANNUAL CONVENTION COMING TO DONEGAL IN 2017 was last modified: March 5th, 2016 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:donegalLadies Gaeliclast_img read more

GIRL, 12, TREATED IN HOSPITAL AFTER BEING FOUND DRUNK

first_imgA 12-YEAR-OLD schoolgirl had to be treated in hospital after being found drunk on Letterkenny Main Street, donegaldaily.com has learned.The shocking incident has caused alarm amongst Gardai and medical staff.For Garda sources say they are dealing with an alarming increase in the number of underage drinkers they are having to deal with in recent months. No-one from the HSE would comment on the latest incident last week under new policies.However we understand the girl was prevented from entering premises in the town after being spotted by a member of staff.The girl had consumed alcohol before attempting to get into the premises – and tried to smuggle booze in with her.The incident comes just a few months after medical chiefs in Co Donegal warned of the escalating number of alcohol-related admissions. The manager of Letterkenny General Hospital Sean Murphy was furious in October – after 26 admissions to the Emergency Department in just one night.Mr John Hayes, HSE Area Manager for Donegal said at the time: “We have been increasingly concerned at the growing practice of low cost selling and its impact on both the health of the population and the demands on our services. With this most recent experience in the General Hospital, I truly worry that the situation will escalate unless action is taken to stop promotions that fuel our binge drinking culture.”© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe 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/donegaldaily Follow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailyGIRL, 12, TREATED IN HOSPITAL AFTER BEING FOUND DRUNK was last modified: February 21st, 2012 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:12donegalgirlletterkennytreated for alcohol abuselast_img read more

Gardaí ahead of St. Patrick’s Day: “Don’t ruin the fun by doing something stupid like drink driving”

first_imgThe Road Safety Authority (RSA) and An Garda Síochána are appealing to all road users to make this St. Patrick’s weekend safe for everyone on the roads.As the country prepares to celebrate St Patrick’s Day with events taking place all across the country drivers and pedestrians in particular are being reminded that any amount of alcohol can cause impairment. The advice is ‘if you are planning to head out plan how you are getting home’.Since 2012 a total of 54 people have been killed and seriously injured on Irish roads over the St. Patrick’s Day holiday period, while there were 749 arrests for driving under the influence of either alcohol or drugs. A report published recently by the RSA, that examined the toxicology reports of those killed in road crashes in 2014, found that one third (33%) of drivers/motorcyclists that died had alcohol in their system at the time of their deaths.The examination, which was conducted by the Health Research Board (HRB) as part of the National Drug Related Death Index (NDRDI), also found that 28% of pedestrians killed had a positive toxicology for alcohol.Ms. Moyagh Murdock, Chief Executive Officer, Road Safety Authority, said: “It’s going to be an action packed weekend and we want everyone to enjoy what it has to offer.“So whether that’s getting out for a walk after the ‘cabin fever’ of Storm Emma, joining in the many St Patrick’s day celebrations that are taking place all over the country or cheering on the Ireland Rugby team to hopefully a third Grand Slam, please don’t ruin the fun by doing something stupid, like drink driving or walking home drunk. “If you are heading out plan how you are getting home.”Ms Murdock also cautioned drivers in relation to the morning after.“10% of fatal collisions where the driver had consumed alcohol, happen between 7am and 11am. It’s a real danger zone for drink driving. So drivers also need to be aware that they may not be safe to drive the morning after a night out, as they may still have alcohol in their system.“If you have done the right thing the night before by leaving the car keys at home, thank you, but you also need to make alternative arrangements for the morning after.”Assistant Commissioner David Sheehan, Roads Policing, An Garda Síochána, said: “Members of An Garda Síochána will be out in force over the St Patrick’s Weekend and while there will be a focus on drink driving we will be on the lookout for other killer behaviors such as speeding, non-seatbelt wearing and using a mobile phone while driving.”He added that: “We are concerned about the number of vulnerable road users, particularly older pedestrians who have been killed on the roads to date this year. “Our advice to all pedestrians is to please be seen when out walking. Wear bright clothing or better still wear a high visibility armband or hi-vis jacket.“Lastly, pedestrians need to understand that if they are drinking they need to make arrangements to get home safety as research shows that alcohol could be a factor in almost a third of pedestrian deaths’.The RSA and An Garda Síochána have the following advice for people planning to socialise over the bank holiday weekend:Plan ahead. Make sure you know how you’re getting home, whether by taxi, with a designated driver or public transport.Don’t walk home if you’re drunk. Almost a third of pedestrians killed on our roads have consumed alcohol.Never ever drink and drive. Any amount of alcohol impairs your driving so either leave the car at home and arrange alternative transport, or stick to the soft drinks.Don’t forget that you could still be over the limit the next morning so take the necessary precautions. It takes roughly one hour for your body to get rid of one unit of alcohol which is a half pint or a standard glass of wine, so if you got to bed late and didn’t get a good night’ sleep, the effect of the alcohol will be more significant.Approximately 1 in 10 drink driving arrests happen between 8am and 2pm so if you have had a heavy night out, leave the car at home.Passengers are reminded to wear seatbelts and to understand that there is a close link between alcohol consumption and the non-wearing of seatbelts in fatality statisticsA total of 29 people have been killed on Irish roads to date in 2018. This represents a decline of six deaths compared to the same date last year.Gardaí ahead of St. Patrick’s Day: “Don’t ruin the fun by doing something stupid like drink driving” was last modified: March 14th, 2018 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:drink drivingGardaipatrick’s daylast_img read more

Mozilla Bringing Firefox to the iPhone With “Get Up and Go” Browsing

first_imgRelated Posts “Firefox Home for iPhone is part of a broader Mozilla effort to provide a more personal Web experience with more user control,” the company said in a blog post Wednesday night. “For devices or platforms where we’re unable to provide the ‘full’ Firefox browser (either technically or due to policy), we aim to provide users with ‘on the go’ instant access to their personal Firefox history, bookmarks and open tabs on their iPhones, giving them another reason to keep loving Firefox on their desktops.”Fans of Firefox with iPhones may be disappointed they aren’t getting a full browser on their device like Android, Windows Mobile and Maemo users, but this app is still pretty useful due to the over-the-air syncing. The inability to browse at will may turn some off, and it remains to be seen how well the Firefox Sync technology works, but this could be an interesting spin on mobile browsing from Mozilla. Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … chris cameron Tags:#mobile#web Mozilla is following in Opera’s footsteps by porting an AppStore-friendly version of its browser over to the iPhone with an free app called Firefox Home. Due to Apple’s restrictions the app will not offer a full-fledged browser experience, and thus you will not be able to simply navigate to any website. Instead, users will be able to sync their browsing history, bookmarks and open tabs onto their iPhone using Mozilla’s encrypted Firefox Sync technology.As shown in an early demo video embedded below, users will be able to search their history, browse their bookmarks or load the tabs they left open on their desktop – all with the handy Awesome Bar functionality that allows for minimal typing. Mozilla says this is useful for “get up and go” situations, such as pulling up a ticket confirmation at the airport, or remembering directions to a restaurant you looked up on your desktop.

SonicLQ: Reconnecting Acoustics and Airtightness

first_imgThere’s an ASTM standard for thatUsing sound to track air leakage is not a new idea. An ASTM standard, ASTM E1186 – “Standard Practices for Air Leakage Site Detection in Building Envelopes and Air Barrier Systems,” has longed contained an option (“Generated Sound in Conjunction with Sound Detection”) that uses acoustic information to characterize air leakage. RELATED ARTICLES How to Keep the Noise DownPinpointing Leaks With a Fog MachineBlower Door Basics What about long tortuous leak paths?Gary Nelson is president and founder of The Energy Conservatory, one of the oldest companies building blower door systems. Nelson is not so sure about SonicLQ.Nelson said, “Sonic leak detection has been around for a long time and sometimes is very useful. But [it does not] work for all types of leaks, especially long tortuous paths, sometimes going through or around sound absorbing insulation. I’m very skeptical that it will ever be able to measure the same leakage that a blower door does on a whole building. Blower door testing big tight buildings can be pretty easy.”I will keep you posted as SonicLQ is put through its paces in the field in the upcoming year. Back in the early days of airport noise mitigation programs, there was a pretty strong link between air leakage and sound. A document titled “Tips for Insulating Your Home Against Aircraft Noise” noted, “Sound travels from the exterior to the interior of the home in two ways: through solid structural elements and through the air…. Wherever air can infiltrate a home, sound can as well.”In fact, in around 1986 — when the price of oil dropped from $32 to $11 a barrel and President Reagan slashed funding for a slew of energy-efficiency program started by President Carter — it was airport noise and the passage of the Airport Noise and Capacity Act of 1990 that served as a bit of a bridge for programs such as the pioneering Minnesota Energy Office program. In addition to acting as GBA’s technical director, Peter Yost is the Vice President for Technical Services at BuildingGreen in Brattleboro, Vermont. He has been building, researching, teaching, writing, and consulting on high-performance homes for more than twenty years. An experienced trainer and consultant, he’s been recognized as NAHB Educator of the Year. Do you have a building science puzzle? Contact Pete here. You can also sign up for BuildingGreen’s email newsletter to get a free report on avoiding toxic insulation, as well as regular posts from Peter. The new approach has promiseI decided to check in with Terry Brennan of Camroden Associates on this new technology for air leakage testing.“This is definitely real,” said Terry. “The math holds up. I am not sure that this approach will be a real advantage over existing approaches for new, tight, buildings, but this has real promise.”Brennan has some particular questions regarding how well SonicLQ will do with complex, circuitous air leaks — for example, air leaks through wall assemblies that include steel studs with fiberglass insulation, gypsum sheathing, and brick veneer (leaks that sometimes extend past the top of wall into a soffit or coping). He also says that the SonicLQ might do better than existing depressurization techniques for features such as trash chutes.Brennan is also very interested in the Department of Defense comparative testing project, emphasizing how important it will be to have experienced blower door experts working with SonicLQ on the testing.Brennan also had the following insight: “The test standard I recommend is the ABAA Standard Method for Building Enclosure Airtightness Compliance Testing. I recommend it for the following reasons:It was developed to be used to determine whether or not a building meets an airtightness target, including methods for determining how to interpret the results and calculated uncertainty.It contains requirements for building setup that includes handling things found in large buildings (e.g. elevator shafts, linen and rubbish chutes, laundries, fire egress stairwells, isolated boiler rooms with makeup air, mechanical rooms with entrances to outside and inside.It allows the use of E779 (multipoint shell pressure regression analysis) and E1827 (single and two point repeated reference pressure tests)It was developed by an ABAA committee that included testing agencies, envelope consultants, air barrier systems manufacturers, architects, engineers, test and balance contractors, and the manufacturers of blower door testing equipment over the course of three years, including two rounds of voting and two rounds of external review.The ABAA board of directors voted to accept and publish the standard.I’d like to get word out about this standard, as I believe it is the best one to reference for conducting large building tests.”NOTE from Brennan: “The only caveat regarding this ABAA standard is it’s hard to find the right place to click on the ABAA whole building test page. While you might think it should be in the list of standards in the list at the top of the page, it’s not. It’s at the end of the paragraph below that is headed ‘ABAA – Standard Method,’ where it says, ‘For a copy of this standard, click here.’”center_img But note that ASTM E1186 is all about qualifying air leakage in buildings, not quantifying it: ASTM E1186 techniques are only about site detection. Researchers have applied for a patentSo how would this work on a two- or three-story home or a multifamily building?The microphone array is lightweight enough that a drone can be used to track with the internal speaker location (see Image #5, below.)Will the equipment work? Muehleisen continues, “We have published our patent application, started testing our field prototype, and have funding from the Department of Defense to do comparative field testing of conventional blower door and our ABIMS. We will be ready for pilot projects within the next 9 months.” The new connection: SonicLQBuilding innovatively on the sound detection option within ASTM E1186, researchers at the Argonne National Laboratory have developed SonicLQ, a system that uses sound to locate and size air leaks in building exterior enclosures (the LQ stands for Leak Quantifier).The system can be used to test any building, during construction or after the building is completed or occupied, and during any season of the year. (You don’t need the temperature difference that infrared imaging requires). Acoustic data are presented to the user in a visual format that identifies where air leaks are located on the building façade — as well as the size of specific leaks — so that informed decisions can be made to seal the largest leaks and realize the greatest energy savings while minimizing assessment and diagnostic costs.Image #1 (above) is a schematic of how the Acoustic Building Infiltration Measurement System (ABIMS) (the approach used by the SonicLQ equipment) works. Image #2 (below) shows the components. Image #3 is a close-up of the microphone array. Image #4 shows how the ABIMS is actually a two-step process.Essentially, low-frequency sound (about 60 decibels or so, roughly the same as conversation in a restaurant or background music) is generated from the speaker and picked up by the microphone array. The sound data are wirelessly sent to a laptop computer, which translates the data into a “sound” picture, which can be overlaid with a digital one. Testing an office — one measuring about 12 feet by 12 feet — would take 2 to 4 minutes.“Distant” acoustic measurement identifies target areas of air leakage; these measurements currently cover about 100 square feet of exterior enclosure, but the goal is to increase this significantly. The near-field acoustic measurements assess 3 feet by 3 feet areas of leakage. Summing up the identified and quantified targeted areas of leakage involves simple proportional surface geometry.Inventor Ralph Muehleisen, principal building scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, adds, “The keys to this technology moving from a lab concept to real-world measurement are the recent advances in near-field acoustic holography (NAH) and the digital micro electrical-mechanical system (MEMS) microphones. The NAH advances have dramatically improved our acoustic capabilities while the MEMS advances have decreased their cost by a factor of ten while making the microphone arrays much lighter weight and more rugged.”last_img read more
