An Independent TD for Donegal has raised the issue of potential loss of earnings for Irish fishing crew in the case of a no-deal Brexit.After speaking at the Committee for Agriculture, Food and the Marine this week, Thomas Pringle was given confirmation that crew fishermen, as well as boat owners and skippers, will be able to access compensation for loss of earnings from the European Maritime Fisheries Fund (EMFF).The Donegal Deputy said: “I think this is a very positive confirmation, particularly for a fishing crew as they will likely suffer the loss of earnings if no-deal Brexit is in sight. “However, I did raise concerns that because compensation must come out of existing funding within the EMFF this could inadvertently impact on existing projects.“It will be important to take into account any impact compensation will have on existing projects.“Another point I raised was the fact that factory workers in the fishing sector will not be able to access compensation in the same manner as fishing crew, boat owners and skippers.“I believe this is wholly unfair as factory workers depend on the fishing sector for their income. “The department stated that factory workers would have to claim income supports from social welfare which I do not believe will be sufficient enough to compensate for the loss of earnings.“This could unfairly impact on seasonal workers in Donegal and elsewhere.”Donegal fishermen to receive earnings compensation in event of no-deal Brexit was last modified: March 6th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Deputy Thomas PringleDonegal TownLaghy
richard macmanus Although we think SimpleGeo has a lot of potential, we should note that geolocation is a very crowded field. As Marshall Kirkpatrick explained last month, SimpleGeo is competing in some way with entrenched enterprise geodata megaliths like Esri; slow-baked open source standards-based technologies such as OpenGeo; hip startups like Locationlabs, Factual and Foursquare; BigCos like Facebook and Google; and free open-source geodata backed by big mapping companies. As a sign of things to come, earlier this month SimpleGeo launched into public beta two free application programming interfaces (APIs) that offer a large amount of information about 13 million places in the United States. This information will be available for free, forever, to anyone building an application that needs local context.Let us know in the comments if you agree with our choice for Most Promising company for 2011, or whether you think another company should’ve been selected.

In this post we select a company that we think has the potential to be Best LittleCo of 2011. Next year we’re expecting a lot from data-centric companies and one in particular. This company provides a platform for developers to create location-aware applications: SimpleGeo.This is the 7th year that we’ve chosen a Most Promising company. Looking back at our results, we’ve hit the mark sometimes: for example, Feedburner in 2004 and Digg in 2005. Other times our picks have been accurate on the trends, but flew wide of the dartboard when it came to picking the successful companies. We chose sync app Sharpcast (now SugarSync) in 2006, but DropBox is better known now. We chose Brightkite in 2008, which ultimately lost out to Foursquare in the battle of the check-in apps. However, we think we have a winner here in SimpleGeo! SimpleGeo comes out of Boulder, Colorado – one of the most innovative startup scenes in the U.S. currently.As ReadWriteWeb’s Chris Cameron explained in May, SimpleGeo evolved out of an earlier company: CrashCorp, created by SocialThing founder Matt Galligan and former Digg Chief Architect Joe Stump. The original plan of CrashCorp was to create mobile games using augmented reality, but the young company soon learned that the hardest part was developing the back-end geolocation infrastructure that would support their applications. Thus was born SimpleGeo. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market
A powerful new feature in the next version of Premiere Pro will aid in synchronizing footage for multi-cam productions. Sync up footage based on AUDIO. In this post we’ll show you how!The next version of Premiere Pro (dubbed “CS Next”) offers up a new way for working with multi camera footage. This ability to auto sync footage based on clip audio will speed up your post production workflow! The first step in working with the new audio sync feature in Premiere Pro is to create a new bin and import all the footage you wish to sync into that bin.Footage to Sync in a New BinNext, right-click on the bin and look for the option ‘Create Multi-Camera Source Sequence…’ option.Right-Click on Bin – Menu OptionsThis will give you the following options box:Create Multi-Camera Source Sequence Options BoxNote all the options to sync your footage multi-cam footage in Premiere Pro (including, In and Out Points and Timecode). The most exciting thing though is you now also have the option to sync the audio of your clips. As an example, if you have lots of different clips say camera phones from a gig and each one is from a different part of the gig you can add them to the bin and still get them to sync perfectly as long as they have audio! Think of the creative possibilities of this function! You can get crowd footage as well as professional footage and create multi-camera perfectly synced sequences.In my Premiere Pro bin I have footage from 2 sources, however, one of them was recorded on a hard drive recording device that uses a FAT32 based file format. Because of the structure of FAT 32, it breaks up the footage into 4 gig clips. So in effect I now have 6 shots or 6 cameras that need to be synchronized!In the dialogue box you will also see that I have the ‘Move source clips to Processed Clips bin’ checked. What this will do is move all clips that have been processed to a new bin created inside your present bin. This shows you instantly is if any clips have not been synchronized for any reason, which you would then either need to sync with another method or sync manually.When you click ‘OK’ you will get the following dialogue box showing the processing progress.Processing – Won’t Take Too LongThis project with 6 cameras and a 20 min talk only took a couple of minutes to process. Once processing has taken place your project panel will look like this:Project Panel After Audio SyncIf you need to ‘tidy up’ your multi-cam sequence you will have to open it with a right-click option (as double clicking it will only open it up in the source monitor).Right-Click Options on Multi-Cam SequenceMulti-Cam Sequence Opened Up in TimelineNotice that the clips for the hard drive recorder are perfectly lined up showing a perfect sync. Also, each 4 gigabyte section has been treated as a separate camera. For my purposes I will need to move all the 4G clips onto one video track as they are all part of the same talk.Clips Moved to a Single Video TrackNow I am ready to move ahead with my multi-cam edit.First, right click on the Multi-Camera sequence in your project panel and choose ‘New Sequence From Clip’.This will create the sequence that you will actually do your multi-cam edit with. Now you need to look for the little spanner icon at the bottom of the ‘Program Monitor’, click on that and choose ‘Multi-Camera’ which is about a third of the way down the list.Spanner Menu in Program MonitorThis opens the Multi-Camera window inside of the Program monitor (a change to the workflow for CS6).Multi-Camera Window in Program MonitorYou may notice that the clips are not well matched because of a white balance issue – this was addressed with RE:Visions’ RE:Match plug-in in a previous blog post.When multicam editing in Premiere Pro, you can switch between cameras by either clicking on the camera you want to use in the left hand side of the program monitor or use the keyboard shortcuts (which are 1 – 9 in the normal part of your keyboard, not the num pad). Once you hit the play button or push the space bar or ‘L’ to play your timeline any change you make to the active camera will be recorded and you will be making your multi-camera edit.Multi-Cam Edits in the TimelineThis new multicam feature in Premiere Pro will quickly synchronize a footage bin and (especially to synchronize by audio) and is a timesaving addition to Premiere Pro. Now that you know how to use this feature and the small changes to the multi camera workflow, you should be up and running as soon as the new version is available to the public!

Call it the Aldo Strategy: If he can get Mayweather feeling both confident and angry, there’s a chance Mayweather will let down his defense enough to attempt to finish McGregor in brute style — and maybe McGregor will have an opening.Mayweather hasn’t seemed interested in McGregor’s typical trash talk during the buildup to the fight, but perhaps he could waver the champion’s focus with the wrong word, an errant elbow or a rabbit punch behind the head — enough to draw a warning, but not lose a point.McGregor amplified his boasts this week, calling Mayweather “a broken man” and vowing to finish him within two rounds. Nobody knows whether McGregor actually believes his bluster, but the Irishman has defiantly vowed he will win.It’s not probable. But with McGregor, anything is possible.

Mayweather isn’t the fighter he once was, and his competitive fire is dwarfed by his need for the mammoth paycheck from this endeavor.Conor McGregor speaks during a news conference Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2017, in Las Vegas.

In his professional boxing debut, McGregor must figure out how to beat Mayweather at his own game — something the best boxers in the world have never done.McGregor is a massive underdog, and deservedly so. But stop pretending the improbable doesn’t happen in combat sports, particularly when the self-proclaimed Mystic Mac is involved.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSBoxers Pacquiao, Petecio torchbearers for SEA Games openingTo declare McGregor can’t possibly win this fight displays more arrogance than, say, spending every night at a strip club the week beforehand, as Mayweather is currently doing.Of course the hard-hitting Irishman has a chance — and there are several tactics he could employ to pull the biggest upset in boxing history. He throws hundreds of punches from every angle with the goal of setting up the vicious left hand that has turned out the lights on MMA opponents.And if none of that is successful, McGregor could bend the Marquess of Queensberry rules to their breaking point in hopes of goading Mayweather into a brawl.None of it is guaranteed to work. But it’s definitely worth a shot.Looking back at Mayweather’s history is a daunting task, given his 49-0 record, but it contains clues for tactics that could magnify McGregor’s chances.For instance, McGregor could amplify the strategy used by Marcos Maidana and Jose Luis Castillo. Both boxers pressed Mayweather constantly, using roughhouse tactics on the border of legality, and bombarded Mayweather with punches, many from unorthodox angles.Mayweather won both fights, but definitely looked uncomfortable for long stretches. McGregor doesn’t have the hand speed of those professional boxers, but he should strive to emulate their urgency.He should also attempt to show Mayweather things he’s never seen before in the ring, and his decision not to hire a boxing trainer for the bout might actually help in that regard. The UFC star should switch stances and try just about any punch, including the looping overhand shots rarely seen in high-level boxing matches because they’re easily countered, but common in MMA bouts because of the distance they create from the opponent.If McGregor gets hit, so be it. Every punch absorbed is the price for a chance to reply.McGregor believes Mayweather made a mistake by agreeing to fight in 8-ounce gloves instead of the typical 10-ounce pillows, but he shouldn’t rely solely on the unicorn one-punch knockout. While McGregor has definite power, only the biggest Mac homer would think it’s something Mayweather hasn’t seen from boxers — and Mayweather has shown a solid chin and excellent recovery skills on the few occasions he has been hit.Instead, the key is to use that energy to get in a good position to unload the left hand or a combination through Mayweather’s shifty defense. McGregor could repeatedly tie up Mayweather and attempt to land shots in the clinch.
