PICTURE OF THE DAY! DONEGAL BANK IS CLEAN OUT OF FUNDS!

first_imgThe bank machine in Letterkenny is “cleaned out.”A lot of us feel cleaned at the end of the month when we have little cash left in our bank accounts.But this picture taken at the AIB cash machine in Letterkenny yesterday took that to a new meaning.Queuing customers were asked to wait a couple of minutes while a service engineer “cleaned out” his account. Most of us would like to “wipe out” our debts with the bank but not even this method worked! PICTURE OF THE DAY!

ASTRONAUT CHRIS HADFIELD TO BEAM INTO DONEGAL IN MASSIVE TOURISM BOOST

first_imgCanadian Astronaut Chris HadfieldBY RACHEL McLAUGHLIN: The Canadian astronaut who tweeted ‘as Gaeilge’ from space last year will visit Donegal to brush up on his language skills.As part of a nationwide holiday, Col. Chris Hadfield will travel to Inishowen and visit a Buncrana school to learn a ‘cúpla focal’ from the local pupils on Friday.Chris will also attend a traditional music session and see the spectacular Inishowen Peninsula, the starting point of the Wild Atlantic Way. Indeed many eyebrows were raised when Buncrana Town councillor Ciaran McLaughlin officially invited the astronaut to Donegal but it now appears that the idea certainly was ‘out of this world.’­­­­­The astronaut tweeted a photo of Donegal from the International Space Station last March:“Donegal, one of the many famous places I’ve only seen from space.”Donegal from space – Photo taken by Col. Chris HadfieldHe also tweeted a few words in Irish: “Tá Éire fíorálainn! Land of green hills & dark beer. With capital Dublin glowing in the Irish night.”Soon Chris and his wife Helene will get to experience the county at ground-level. His visit to Ireland will be documented in three short films featuring different themes like our spectacular scenery, Irish culture and traditions, as well as major visitor attractions.The films will be shared online and will surely put Inishowen and Donegal on the map as a top tourist destination, highlighting the many great things to see and do here on holiday. Top international travel and lifestyle media will also see the footage through the Tourism Ireland publicity campaign.Chris will also be tweeting his experiences during the five-day ambassador tour, inspiring his more than one million Twitter followers to begin planning their own holiday to Donegal and Ireland this year.CEO of Tourism Ireland Niall Gibbons said: “We are delighted to welcome Chris Hadfield to Inishowen and the North West. I would like to personally thank him for his tremendous generosity in agreeing to help us promote Ireland around the world. “Of course, he already began promoting Ireland last year, with the dramatic photos he tweeted from the International Space Station to his huge Twitter fanbase.“Chris is an enormously popular, global figure and I am confident that our films of his visit to Inishowen and Ireland will be seen and shared by millions of potential holidaymakers around the world – inspiring them to come and sample the destination for themselves.”ASTRONAUT CHRIS HADFIELD TO BEAM INTO DONEGAL IN MASSIVE TOURISM BOOST was last modified: January 10th, 2014 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:astronautbuncranaChris HadfieldInishowenlast_img read more

SNOW JOKE – SANTA’S DONEGAL GROTTO IS ALREADY SWAMPED WITH BOOKINGS!

first_imgSanta with some of his elves from Santa’s Island at Doagh Island. Pic by North West Newspix.A Santa visitors’ attraction has been swamped with bookings – 134 days before Christmas Day!Santa’s Island on the Inishowen Peninsula launchd its 2015 website yesterday outlining its plans for the coming festive season.And although it is still summer and children have yet to go back to school, families are already thinking ahead. Owner of Santa’s Island, Pat Doherty, has revealed that they have been inundated with hundreds of bookings in a few short hours.“There has been a tremendous reaction. People just can’t get enough of Christmas. We have had hundreds of bookings already,” he revealed.Although the attraction at Doagh Island, Clonmany, does not officially open until November 22nd, the attraction is already taking shape.The attraction enjoys a super reputation with people coming from as far as England to visit   the attraction which opens on the site of the popular Doagh Famine Village. As well as live animals, a Santa workshop and office, a life-size Santa sleigh, Santa’s Island features a live Elves Disco.Pat revealed that the attraction, which has been open since 1999, hosts visitors from as far away as England and across the length and breadth of Ireland.He says the only think thing is usually missing from Donegal’s version of Santa’s Lapland is the snow.But he added “We think that’s a good thing because you simply couldn’t get around Donegal if it was snowing.“We are located on the Inishowen Peninsula and many of the roads would be impassable if we got have snow. “We have everything lapland has but the snow but everyone has a once-in-a-lifetime experience when they come here.”The popularity of Santa’s Island has also led to a huge spin-off to hotels on the peninsula with hotels offering special packages for families coming to visit Santa’s Island.SNOW JOKE – SANTA’S DONEGAL GROTTO IS ALREADY SWAMPED WITH BOOKINGS! was last modified: August 11th, 2015 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:CHristmasclonmanydonegalPat DohertySanta’s Islandlast_img read more

Browsing YouTube with IE6 at Work? Those Days May Soon be Over

first_imgRelated Posts Image Credit: Ajaxian. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#news#NYT#web frederic lardinois Internet Explorer 6 is the browser that just doesn’t want to die, even though it has now been superseded by two generations of Internet Explorer, and Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and Opera offer great alternatives. Slowly, however, we are seeing that web developers are phasing out support for IE6, and the latest service to join this movement is Google’s YouTube. According to some reports, a message now appears on YouTube when a user accesses the site with IE6, informing users that the service will be “phasing out support for your browser soon.” The logos of Google Chrome, Firefox, and IE8 appear right next to the text. Who Uses IE6?Most users who have a choice would probably switch away from IE6 in a heartbeat, but if the stats for YouTube are anything like what Digg found in regards to phasing out support for IE6, then most YouTube users who are actually still using IE6 do so from work. Digg found that 90% of its IE6 users were using this antiquated browser at work, where they probably have no other option. About 80% of those who responded to Digg’s survey couldn’t change to another browser because they had no administrator access to their computer, weren’t allowed to upgrade, or simply couldn’t upgrade because they were still running Windows 2000, ME, or 98. About 17% of Digg’s users simply didn’t feel the need to upgrade and 7% said they preferred IE6 to other browsers (we wonder how many of these people were serious, though).Of course, it is also important to note that Google also uses messages like “Gmail runs better in Chrome” to push its own browser regularly and regularly runs ads for Chrome on YouTube.

Burn After Calling: Disposable Phone Numbers

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting adam popescu There’s always a pause after someone asks, “Can I have your number?” Someone’s silently wondering if complying will mean trouble.What if you didn’t have to worry about about that?  Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#apps#web No, disposable phone numbers don’t go hand in hand with crime, Carter explained. For one thing, they can be traced. Calls still go through your cell carrier and Twilio, the third-party company that dispenses numbers for the Burner App. Carter admits his company keeps backups and logs of calls for a short time in order to debug and offer customer support. “We’re not trying to sell ourselves as encrypted, 100 percent secure,” he said.The app is limited to iPhone owners now, but Ad Hoc Labs plans to extend to Web and Android platforms. Marc O’Krent, president of The Telephone Connection of Los Angeles, a voicemail service provider for doctors, thinks the app could be a hit. “I think it’s a great application,” O’Krent said. “The limitation is that it uses a customer’s existing message and data plan.”center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Enter the Burner App. For $1.99 per use, iPhone owners can get a disposable, short-term phone number to use for business, pleasure or any combination of the two. From within the app, you choose an area code and ask for a number. But like a prepaid phone card, when the time expires, no more calling. The number is “burned,” or quarantined for two weeks before being recirculated.Fresh Burner numbers are good for talk and text for seven days. During that week, you get up to 20 minutes of talk and 60 texts. You can add time to a burned number, too. An additional 30 days, 50 voice minutes and 150 texts costs about $2.50.Burner requires you to have a phone plan in order to get a temporary line. Nefarious deeds aside, burnable phone numbers can be useful when conducting transactions on sites like Craigslist, dating and connecting side businesses and short-term projects. And for those of us who just plain don’t like giving our numbers to someone we just met. The beauty of the app is the freedom people feel with a number they have no attachment to, says Will Carter, chief tech officer of Ad Hoc Labs, the company behind the Burner. Changing numbers to shake loose the wrong caller is even more inconvenient than changing an email address.“Phone numbers are so caught up in people’s identities that it’s a limiting factor,” Carter said.  Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Former Maharashtra cabinet minister expelled from Congress

first_imgNagpur: Former Maharashtra cabinet minister and senior leader Satish Chaturvedi was expelled from the Congress for alleged anti-party activities on Friday.The expulsion order issued by the State unit Congress secretary Ganesh Patil states Mr. Chaturvedi was accused of “putting and encouraging” rebel candidates during the 2017 municipal elections in Maharashtra.“You encouraged and openly supported rebel candidates against the official party candidates during the 2017 municipal elections in Nagpur. We have received reports that you openly flouted the party discipline by campaigning for rebel candidates and by supporting them. An inquiry was conducted over the allegations against you. You were also served a notice by Nagpur district Congress Committee on January 23, 2018. But you neglected this notice and refused to come clean on the allegations against you,” the letter issued by Ganesh Patil reads.“Taking into account all the allegations and an inquiry, the state Congress president has decided to cancel your primary membership of the party and expel you from the Indian National Congress,” the letter added.No contactMr. Chaturvedi could not be contacted despite repeated attempts on Friday.However, while speaking to this reporter last month, he had claimed that the Nagpur District Congress Committee had no authority to send him any notice.The expulsion of Mr. Chaturvedi is being considered as a win of the Nagpur DCC led by Vikas Thakare and his mentor and former Nagpur MP Vilas Muttemwar.The Nagpur unit of the Congress is divided into two factions — one led by Mr. Muttemwar and the other by Mr. Chaturvedi, and former Maharashtra cabinet ministers Nitin Raut and Anees Ahmad.The Muttemwar group had also accused Mr. Chaturvedi of being involved in an ink throwing incident on Maharashtra Congress chief Ashok Chavan during the municipal elections last year.Mr. Chaturvedi, however, had denied the allegations and said that the Congress unit of Vidarbha region should be separate from Maharashtra unit.last_img read more

Wimbledon 2011: Kvitova stuns Sharapova, wins title

first_imgMaria Sharapova had talked about getting some good sleep a day before the final. On Saturday, she seemed to be in a state of stupor as cherubic Petra Kvitova stunned her with a clinical 6-3, 6-4 verdict to clinch the ladies’ singles title at Wimbledon.In its 125th edition, there had to be something special about The Championships. That Kvitova would soar like a kite in the clear blue sky over the Centre Court was not expected against the former champion whose aggressive brand of tennis was missing.Left-handers in any sport are natural and graceful. Kvitova was no different as the Czech Republic native, the first left-hander after Martina Navratilova to win the title here, churned out smart tennis against the seasoned champion.Petra Kvitova vs Maria SharapovaAs the match progressed, Kvitova was on fire. She got the vital break for a 4-2 lead in the first set when Sharapova hit two straight double faults from 30-all. She eventually served out the set at love.Each fan lucky enough to be present inside Centre Court loved the brand of tennis which Kvitova played. But what caught the attention of the fans’ was her unflappable temperament in the biggest match of her career.Shouts of ‘Maria… Maria..” rent the air initially, as the Russian is better known here and has been coming to the Mecca of tennis for such a long time.The high decibel grunts were accompanied by heavy forehands as well. But where Sharapova came short was in her own service games, unable to hold as well as she is capable of.advertisementBreaks exchanged hands quickly in the second set. Finally, Kvitova made the big surge ahead for a 4-2 lead. More unforced errors crept into Sharapova’s game and Kvitova knew all that she had to do was play her natural game.There were times when Kvitova missed the ball in the speedy rallies. But with the crowds changing loyalties, she was fully focused. Serving for The Championship at 5-4, Kvitova blasted two forehand winners for a 30-0 lead. Sharapova then slammed a return into the net.Championship point for the 21-year-old. The six feet tall Kvitova took a deep breath, cranked her left arm up and let fly an ace. A new champion was born and Kvitova sank on her knees and then stood up after a short while. She kissed Sharpova across the net and threw her sweaty wrist band into her racquet bag and buried her face in the pink towel.Maria Sharapova sits in her chair after being defeated by Petra Kvitova. APIt had just taken an hour and 25 minutes to seal the title but her tennis journey from the old club courts in Bilovec (Czech Republic) to holding the Venus Rosewater Dish on Centre Court at Wimbledon was indeed emotional.”It’s hard to find words standing here with the trophy and seeing all the great players in the Royal Box,” she said just after lifting the trophy.”Of course I was nervous, because I thought I could win Wimbledon. But I did what was important and focused on each point,” added the new diva of women’s tennis.As she came for the post-match conference, Kviotva let her hair loose. She was first asked a question if there were tennis courts back home in Czech Republic!She replied calmly and then described the emotions her father has gone through. “My father is still crying and he has been crying after every match. It’s an unbelievable feeling to be a Wimbledon champion,” she said in an emotional voice.Asked on Sharapova’s game, Kviotva was reserved in her observations. “I was surprised how I was focussed on the point and the game. It was about the serve for sure and the return. Maria he made some double faults, even though I was prepared for a fast player,” she added.Kvitova has earned 1,100,000 British Pounds for her win on Saturday and this is a huge pay cheque for a player winning her first Grand Slam title.ResultsWomen’s singles final: Petra Kvitova (CZE x8) bt Maria Sharapova (RUS x5) 6-3, 6-4Men’s doubles final: Bob and Mike Bryan (USA x1) bt Robert Lindstedt (SWE) and Horia Teacau (ROU x8) 6-3, 6-4, 7-6Women’s doubles semi-finals: Sabine Lisicki (GER) and Sam Stosur (AUS) bt Marina Erakovic (NZL) and Tamarine Tanasugarn (THA) 6-3, 4-6, 8-6Mixed doubles semi-finals: Mahesh Bhupathi (IND) and Elena Vesnina (RUS x4) bt Paul Hanley (AUS) and Su-Wei Hsieh (TPE) 6-2, 3-6, 7-5last_img read more
