first_img Patrick Bamford 1 Patrick Bamford is understood to have opted to end his loan stint at Crystal Palace and return to Chelsea, although it seemed like news to manager Alan Pardew following Monday’s 0-0 draw with Swansea.It has been suggested the 22-year-old striker told reporters he has asked to return to Stamford Bridge, ahead of seeking another loan move in January.Bamford, who was named the Championship Player of the Year last season after an impressive spell with Middlesbrough – scoring 19 goals – missed a gilt-edged chance to claim a late victory at Selhurst Park.Bamford blasted a point-blank effort straight at grateful Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski when he should have buried the winning goal in front of the home support.His goalless nine-game stint with the Eagles now looks at an end, despite manager Alan Pardew insisting Palace were yet to talk to Chelsea on Bamford’s future.“Strikers will always tell you they need five games,” said Pardew of Bamford’s form.“Managers ain’t got time for five games. You’ve got to come in and do it.“But that chance was normally one he would take.“Patrick nine times out of ten would have buried that and we’d have got three points. But I can’t be disappointed.“Maybe he just needs that goal to give him that spark that strikers need.”When asked if Chelsea would recall Bamford in January, Pardew added: “I think it’s a conversation we’ll have to have with Chelsea for sure, but we haven’t had it yet.”last_img read more

first_imgBURBANK – Walt Disney Studios is expected to lay off as many as 10 percent of its employees this summer as part of cost-cutting connected to the recent purchase of Pixar Animated Studios, according to published reports and studio sources. The Pixar deal resulted in the longtime Disney movie supplier merging with Disney’s existing animation division, causing some job replication. The studio’s spokeswoman, Heidi Trada, declined Tuesday to confirm any impending layoffs, saying only, “We are constantly evaluating our business to make it better and more efficient.” The New York Times reported that the layoffs are likely to be 5 percent of the staff but could climb as high as 10 percent once a review of the studio’s operations is complete. Sources said Tuesday the cutbacks are expected to affect all units at the studio. Last year followed a similar pattern after the success of “The Pacifier” with such flops as “Dark Water” before the studio was able to stage a fall comeback with the hits “Flightplan” and “Chicken Little” before ending the year with “Narnia,” one of the highest-grossing releases of 2005. “They did seem to have a lot of disappointments,” said Brandon Gray, president of Box Office Mojo. “But Disney seems to be as consistent as any studio.” greg.hernandez@dailynews.com (818) 713-3758160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The movie division of The Walt Disney Co. is currently in third place so far in 2006 in terms of market share. After a record year in 2003, the studio slipped from first place to No. 3 in 2004 and fell to fourth place last year. In its May 9 quarterly earnings report, Disney reported that revenue had fallen by 22 percent to $1.8 billion compared to the same quarter a year earlier despite the success of the blockbuster “The Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” and the hit “Eight Below.” Disney executives and box office observers are bullish on the studio’s next two releases: the Pixar title “Cars,” which bows June 9, and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest,” a sequel to the summer 2003 smash that, with Pixar’s “Finding Nemo,” led Disney’s movie division to its most successful year in history when they earned a combined $645.1 million domestically. But the next year, the studio endured several expensive flops, including “The Alamo,” “Hidalgo,” “King Arthur” and “Home on the Range” before rebounding with the Pixar title “The Incredibles,” the fall smash “National Treasure” and “The Village.” last_img read more

There was no jackpot winner.The winner of the €50 lucky ticket was Sadie Rose, Blue Cedars.Next weeks jackpot is €3950.Remember if you’re not in, you can’t win!!!CAPPRY ROVERSCappry Rovers played host to Drumoghill FC on Thursday evening last in Cappry Park. Cappry took the lead through Brian Lafferty in the 1st half. Drumoghill equalised early in the 2nd half but an Aaron Kelly strike proved to be the winner for Cappry to put them into the next round. They will travel Glengad FC on Sunday with a 1.30pm kick off. We would like to wish the players and management all the best in their next challenge.CAPPRY ROVERS RESERVESCappry Rovers are back in action next Saturday when they travel to Killybegs to play St Catherine’s. Cappry currently sit one place above St Catherine’s although St Catherine’s have a game in hand.CAPPRY ROVERS U14’sCappry Rovers were up against Glenea Utd last Saturday in the Ulster Semi-Final of the National Cup. The lads were missing a few players through injury but the players who turned up played very well and on another day things could have been so different. They went down 2-0 but Cappry pulled a goal back through Thomas McMenamin and they created another few chances but just couldn’t find a way past the Glenea keeper. Glenea grabbed another goal before the final whistle which proved to be the last goal of the game. Final score 3-1.All at Cappry Rovers would like to express how proud we are of their efforts in this competition. Well done lads.CAPPRY COLTS U14’sThe Colts were at home to Ballybofey United at Cappry Park on Friday night last.  Played under the lights in damp and wintry conditions, the Colts produced another great effort and once more are showing massive improvement game on game.  The young Colts side kept the visitors at bay for a large period of the first half before Ballybofey eventually took the lead midway through the half and added two more before the half-time break.  Luke Gallen, who impressed throughout for the Colts, pulled a goal back for the home side early in the second half which was just rewards for his efforts and that of his team.  While Ballybofey went on to add further to the scoreline late in the game, it proved to be a thoroughly entertaining derby game played between two very determined sides. CAPPRY ROVERS U12’sCOCKHILL CELTIC 1-3 CAPPRY ROVERSCappry were in National Cup action on Saturday when they travelled to Buncrana to play Cockhill Celtic in the Ulster Final. This game was played in wet and cold conditions but the playing surface was in immaculate condition. Cappry took the lead in the first 5 minutes when Mark Mbuli pounced on a mistake in the Cockhill defence and Mark forced the ball to the back of the net. Cappry’s lead only lasted 5 minutes when Cockhill scored following a corner kick. Cappry controlled the game from then on and created a couple of chances with the Cockhill Celtic keeper pulling off a couple of great saves and there was also a shot cleared of the line. The scoreline stayed 1-1 until the break.In the second half things started evenly until midway through the half when the Cappry management and supporters were left scratching their heads when Mark Mbuli was denied a stonewall penalty. To add salt to the wounds Cockhill were awarded a penalty of their own when a Cappry defender was adjudged to have handled the ball on the edge of the area. From the resulting penalty Cappry felt justice was served when the penalty was kicked wide. This seemed to instill spirit into the Cappry lads and with 10 minutes to go Daniel Marley’s corner was goal bound and despite the efforts of the Cockhill defender his header could not stop the ball hitting the back of the net. 2 minutes later another Cappry corner was whipped in by Shaun Ward and Luke McGlynn headed the ball to the net to seal victory for Cappry and they now progress to the round of 32 in the National stages.A very good team performance with Joseph Gillespie doing well in goals, Oisin McGlinchey, Shaun Ward, Gavin McCormick and Daniel Marley solid in defence, Sean McMenamin, Andrew Murray, Luke McGlynn and Jack Long working hard in midfield,Evan Long and Kevin McCormack who also worked hard along with the outstanding Mark Mbuli on the day.Everybody at the club are very proud of the achievements of this young team. We would like to wish Martin McMenamin, his management team and the players the very best of luck in the next round.CAPPRY CRUSADERS U12’sCappry Crusaders were in action last Thursday evening when they hosted Ballybofey Utd Cubs. The game was played in very difficult conditions with driving wind. Credit has to be giving to both teams for their efforts in putting in a great display of football. Cappry had the best chance of the game when Dylan Gallagher hit a shot from almost 20 yards that looked to have went over the keeper only for the keeper to get a hand to the ball to push it onto the crossbar. The game ended scoreless in what seemed like a fair result.On Saturday Cappry hosted Convoy Arsenal in very tough conditions with driving rain at times and strong winds. Convoy capitalised on a couple of defencive errors to open up a 3-0 lead with the aid of the wind at their backs. Cappry were attacking Convoy in waves but the Convoy keeper was immense and dealt with all Cappry could throw at them up until Martin Mbuli unselfishly squared a ball and Patrick Carr tapped in at the far post to get Cappry of the mark. Martin Mbuli grabbed Cappry’s 2nd when he drilled in a shot from the right of the box which went right across the keeper and into the side netting to bring Cappry back to within a goal. Convoy were always a threat on the break and were unfortunate to have a goal ruled offside when it appeared to have been fine.In the 2nd half Cappry upped their game and brought the game to Convoy. The Convoy keeper again excelled and made things difficult for Cappry. Aaron Lyons eventually got Cappry back on level terms when a ball broke out of the Convoy defence and Aaron hit a clean shot to the far top corner and didn’t give the keeper a chance. Dylan Gallagher will feel disappointed not to have scored after he had a lot of chances that went narrowly wide or the keeper saved. Cappry’s winner came when Darragh Boyle broke down the right wing and earned a free kick when he was pushed over the side line. Darragh took the resulting free which was half cleared from the Convoy defence only for Conor McGinty to pounce and hit a low drive to the bottom left hand corner of the net. It was a much improved 2nd half from Cappry with all the lads showing great commitment and desire to grind out a very tough victory.THANKSWe would like to thank everybody for all their help on our recent fundraisers.

first_imgSINGER Daniel O’Donnell choked back tears today as the people of Kincasslagh came out in their hundreds to say a sad farewell to his mother Julia.Hundreds of mourners turned up for the funeral of the gentle 94 year old who lived for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.The coastal church of St Mary’s in Kincasslagh was packed to capacity an hour before the funeral mass was due to begin. The church nestles on a small hill overlooking the sea with Owey Island in the distance where Julia and her late husband moved from to the mainland to marry and have children.Daniel O’Donnell’s wife Majella comforts him at his mother Julia’s funeral today. Picture by Joe Boland.No less than eleven priests concelebrated the funeral mass.They included Fr Brian Darcy, Fr John Joe Duffy and chief celebrant Fr Brian Logue who was present at Julia’s husband Francie’s funeral almost 50 years ago.Julia’s remains were brought into the church by her sons and daughters James, John Bosco, Daniel, Margaret and Kathleen. Daniel’s wife Majella and a large following of family followed close behind.A large wreath of white roses and lilies sat on top of Julia’s coffin.Parish priest Fr Pat Ward said his mother always asked him after funerals how many priests were at the mass.He said his mother would have been proud of how many priests turned up to concelebrate Julia’s funeral mass.Fr Logue, a local priest, returned from Scotland to conduct the service at the request of Julia. Julia’s remains are brought to the church today with her native Owey island in the background. Picture by Joe Boland.He said Julia was simply a wonderful mother who had many talents including knitting and composing songs.“The children were also blessed, as I would know, with a wonderful father Francie. I have no doubt now that he and Julia are together again in the Kingdom of God.“She was a gifted and talented person. She was very well known for her knitting, she knitted for the Pope, she knitted for the Queen and she received ‘thank you’ letters from both of them.”To laughter from the congregation, he joked: “I cannot count the number of clerical black socks she knitted for me. “She was also a composer of songs. When Daniel was nine years old he was at our home in Kincasslagh he offered to sing a song for us and it was called ‘there’s a shop at the corner called Logues’. My father’s shop.“It was the first ever recorded song by Daniel. We still have the tape, the very first recording. And the studio it was composed was Logue’s kitchen.”He looked at Julia’s coffin and said “Now Julia, I’m going to bid you farewell.“Whenever I reach the golden gates, I hope, I hope you will be there to welcome me with a new pair of socks…and a song. One day I will meet you and we will sing together again.”The funeral hymns, in both Irish and English, were sung by Daniel’s close friend Mary Duff.Julia’s grand children and great-grandchildren read the prayers of the faithful.Among the prayers was a request to pray of the staff of Dungloe Community Hospital where Julia was so lovingly cared for in her final days before she passed away in the early hours of Sunday morning.Among those in the packed congregation was hotelier and Donegal GAA All-Ireland winning manager Brian McEniff and Daniel’s official biographer Eddie Rowley.Throughout the mass Daniel managed to remain composed but broke down in tears as his mother’s coffin was led from the church.Outside the heavens had opened into a gentle drizzle as Julia was led to her final resting place at nearby Belcruit Cemetery alongside her husband Francie.With her island birthplace in the distance through the mist and rain, Julia O’Donnell’s long journey had finally come to a peaceful end.DANIEL IN TEARS AS HE SAYS FINAL FAREWELL TO HIS BELOVED MOTHER JULIA was last modified: May 21st, 2014 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:daniel o’donnellfuneralJULIA O’DONNELLKINCASSLAGHlast_img read more

first_img From December 2003 through April of this year, Friends of Animals held 233 howl-ins across the nation. But the campaign had little impact on Alaska tourism, according to Dave Worrell, spokesman for the Alaska Travel Industry Association, a trade organization of about 1,000 Alaska businesses. In fact, the number of summer tourists rose from 1.3 million in 2002 to an estimated 1.5 million this past summer, he said. Friends of Animals will continue its call for a tourism boycott with ads on television and in print, Feral said. Ads have already appeared in publications including The New York Times, Good Housekeeping, National Geographic, and Oprah Winfrey’s and Martha Stewart’s magazines. Feral said Friends of Animals also is fighting the wolf program in court. This past week, the group asked a judge to expedite a ruling on its latest challenge, which questions the state’s scientific evidence to support the program. Matt Robus, director of the state Division of Wildlife Conservation, said state laws require management strategies when crucial moose and caribou herds decline below certain levels. “We are not casually going out and deciding to do this,” he said. “One of the important uses under Alaska history is taking animals for feeding families, for the meat, for the food.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Wally Hickel stopped a wolf-hunting program after 53 howl-ins in 51 cities. State biologists estimate that Alaska has 7,000 to 11,000 wolves. They say that’s enough carnivores to drive down the number of moose and caribou that many residents rely on for food. Murkowski remains a strong supporter of the program, said his spokesman, Mike Chambers. “This has always been a responsible predator-control program that is intended to manage our game populations, and it is working,” he said. “We are happy that Friends of Animals realizes that feeding people is more important than protecting animals that are not threatened in the first place.” The wolf-control program started in 2003. More than 400 wolves have been killed under the program so far, and the state has set a goal of 400 more this winter, when snow makes the animals stand out. The state issued more than 100 new permits this month to hunt wolves on the ground and from the air. ANCHORAGE, Alaska – The howling has stopped. An animal-rights group is dropping the “howl-ins” it conducted as part of a nationwide campaign to stop the killing of wolves in Alaska, but members will continue their call for a tourism boycott of the state. Over the past two years, Friends of Animals helped stage hundreds of demonstrations in cities across the country to protest Alaska’s predator-control program, intended to allow moose and caribou to increase in numbers. Some activists dressed in wolf outfits at the gatherings, and some howled in imitation of wolves to protest the hunts. But the campaign failed to convince Alaska Gov. Frank Murkowski that killing wolves is wrong, said Priscilla Feral, president of Friends of Animals, based in Darien, Conn. “If the boycott was designed to get Murkowski to sacrifice an attitude, it didn’t happen,” Feral said. last_img read more

first_imgThe infrastructure development boom is set to continue creating thousands of jobs. Ministers have to devise job creation plans. The private sector is expected to create most of the required jobs. (Images: Bongani Nkosi) MEDIA CONTACTS • Themba Maseko Government spokesperson +27 12 314 2150  RELATED ARTICLES • Budget big on education, jobs • Zuma’s 2010 plan of action • One million jobs in four years • R4-billion for 4.5-million jobs • Teaching jobless how to find jobsBongani NkosiThe South African government has unveiled its plan to create 5-million jobs over the next decade and reduce unemployment by 10%.Cabinet ministers have endorsed the government’s new growth path programme, which details its employment plans. The path will prioritise job creation in the government’s economic policy, Minister in the Presidency Colins Chabane said in a statement on 26 October 2010. Chabane is responsible for monitoring and evaluation.“The new growth path is a broad framework that sets out a vision and identifies key areas where jobs can be created,” he said.The government’s target is to reduce unemployment from 25% to 15% within 10 years. Jobs are planned to be created in both the public and private sectors, but with greater focus on the latter.Statistics South Africa confirmed on 26 October that the current unemployment rate in the country is as high as 25.3%, with young people being the most affected.“The new growth path is intended to address unemployment, inequality and poverty in a strategy that is principally reliant on creating a significant increase in the number of new jobs in the economy, mainly in the private sector,” added Chabane.All departments have to draw up detailed implementation plans and submit them to the Cabinet over the next six months.Six targeted sectorsThe government has identified six sectors that could provide thousands of new jobs each year. They are infrastructure, agriculture, mining, tourism, green energy and manufacturing.Interest in the infrastructure sector is driven by the “massive expansion” of transport, energy, water, communications capacity and housing projects.“In each of these areas clear targets of the jobs potential have been developed and state agencies have now been directed to work on implementation plans,” Chabane said.It’s predicted that about 400 000 jobs will be created in the green energy sector by 2030 through the manufacturing, construction, operation and maintenance of new, environment-friendly infrastructure.“Additional jobs will be created by expanding existing public employment schemes to protect the environment, as well as in production of biofuels,” he said.The Industrial Development Corporation has been allocated R12-billion (US$1.7-billion) to stimulate growth of the green industrial economy.Chabane said the government will need to be more decisive in order for its new plan to bear fruit. “It will require the state to be more effective in implementation.”The not-for-profit sector will also be targeted to increase employment in mass empowerment schemes like cooperatives.“Critically, this employment target can only be achieved if the social partners and government work together to address key structural challenges in the economy,” he added.Metros have a roleIt’s not only the national government that’s tasked with job creation; municipalities and provincial government also have a role to play. Mayors of metropolitan districts, which employ millions of people, have approved the job creation resolution and “committed to revising their strategies to reflect the new, unifying vision”, said Chabane.“The new growth path will … provide the basis for coordinated policies and programmes across the state.”Leaders of private businesses and labour organisations, as well as community leaders, are to be formally introduced to the plan.South Africa’s economy shed more than 1-million jobs as a result of the recent global recession.last_img read more
