COUNCILLOR DEMANDS ANSWERS ON CONNECTION TO SEWERAGE SCHEMES FOR DONEAGL ESTATES

first_imgCllr Patrick McGowanA county councillor has welcomed major sewerage projects in Donegal especially Convoy but questions when will the unfinished estates in Convoy be connected.Cllr Patrick McGowan said that two estates, Greenfields and Flaxfields, are ready to be connected but says no final arrangements have been agreed between the Council and IW about the connections.He said the same situation arises in KillyGordon where there is a plan and funding to connect Dromore NS to the main sewerage treatment plant in KillyGordon but no plans agreed yet between the Council and IW about connecting Dromore park housing scheme next door just a few metres away. “This funding opportunity must not be lost by the Council to sort out these estates once and for all said Cllr McGowan,” said Cllr McGowan.Irish Water has commenced work on the €18.4 million Donegal Group B project which includes the development of new sewerage schemes in Killybegs, Bundoran, Glencolumcille and Convoy.This forms part of the €70 million investment committed by Irish Water to wastewater infrastructure in Co Donegal. Veolia Water Ireland in partnership with BAM Civil Limited are carrying out the works on behalf of Irish Water.Initially the focus will be on Bundoran and Killybegs, and works have now commenced in both of these locations including upgrading the access road to the Bundoran Waste Water Treatment Plant and work on the new Killybegs Waste Water Treatment Plant site and access road. Work will also be commencing shortly at the main Bundoran Pumping Station and works here are expected to last for 26 weeks. During these works a section of the public car park, and the green area along the foreshore adjacent to the Bradogue River, will be cordoned off to facilitate construction. Commenting on the investment Eunan Canavan, Irish Water’s Capital Delivery Regional Lead North West said: “Killybegs and Bundoran are two of 44 towns in Ireland where untreated sewage is being discharged directly into the sea. Irish Water will ensure that wastewater treatment in the four towns is compliant with required EU Urban Wastewater Treatment Directive standards while also allowing for future economic growth in the towns.”COUNCILLOR DEMANDS ANSWERS ON CONNECTION TO SEWERAGE SCHEMES FOR DONEAGL ESTATES was last modified: June 22nd, 2016 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:cllr patrick McGowanconvoydonegalsewerage schemelast_img read more

Half-time: Spurs 0 QPR 1

first_imgBobby Zamora’s goal gave QPR a deserved half-time lead at White Hart Lane after they had much the better of the opening period.R’s boss Mark Hughes had a major reshuffling job to do in defence before kick-off with Anton Ferdinand, Armand Traore, Fabio and recent signing Stephane Mbia all ruled out with injuries.And to make matters worse, Jose Bosingwa limped off in only the third minute after pulling up with what appeared to be a hamstring strain and was replaced by Kieron Dyer.But it did not stop Rangers from threatening repeatedly on the counter-attack, and Zamora was able to fire home Alejandro Faurlin’s through-ball to put them ahead.Adel Taraabt was also missing from the matchday squad after pulling up with a hamstring problem of his own in training on Friday.QPR (4-5-1): Cesar; Onuoha, Hill, Nelsen, Bosingwa (Dyer 3); Faurlin, Granero; Wright-Phillips, Hoilett, Park; ZamoraFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

The two heads of state will discuss bilateral relations and will also address business leaders from both countries at a forum in Pretoria on 3 May.Patil is accompanied by a government minister, four parliamentarians, government officials from various departments, and representatives from business.“This is a significant state visit because relations between India and South Africa date back many decades,” said Zuma.“It is more important as it takes place during the year in which the country marks 100 years of the oldest liberation movement in Africa, the African National Congress (ANC).”The two countries established diplomatic relations in 1993, with numerous high-level visits resulting from the relationship. Furthermore, cooperation agreements have been signed in the trade, investment, education, defence, ICT, health, agriculture, and science and technology sectors.Boosting South Africa at home and abroad, forging international relationships, encouraging trade and investment and supporting tourism efforts are all vital components of Brand South Africa’s vision.Strong historical ties President Patil meets the various cabinet ministers in the South African government.“Our two nations share a history of struggles against colonial oppression and racism,” Zuma said.He added that the ANC’s centenary is important to India as well, as evidenced by the high level delegation sent from that country to the official celebrations in January.Zuma noted also the deep social, economic and cultural ties shared by the two countries.“In our talks we reflected on how we can further translate our historical ties into meaningful socio-economic development cooperation. Progress is being made in that regard.”The Indian delegation held private talks with their South African counterparts and then addressed the media, saying that there is a need for further cooperation in a number of areas, especially infrastructure development, training, trade relations and tourism.Investing in and visiting South Africa President Patil addresses delegates at the   meeting.(Images: GCIS)“We have once again extended an invitation to Indian business to invest in our infrastructure development programme, which will run until 2014 and is worth more than R800-billion (US$104-billion).”Of that investment, R300-billion ($39-billion) will go towards the energy sector and R262-billion ($33-billion) towards transport and logistics projects.The delegates identified a definite need for skills transfer with India in the areas of engineering; ICT; computer science; finance; economics and accounting.According to South African Tourism, between 2005 and 2010, there was an increase of 122% in the number of Indian tourists to South Africa.In 2011, the number in the first nine months of the year had already surpassed, by 29%, that of the same period in 2010. As a result, India is now ranked seventh in the top 20 source markets for South African tourism.“The Southern African Tourism Association is training more than 1 000 Indian travel agents and tour operators in India to ensure they have the skills and experience to market South Africa,” said Zuma.“We are doing this because we want tourism from India to South Africa to increase significantly, especially after this state visit.”Trade between the two countriesAccording to the Department of International Relations and Cooperation, trade between the two countries stood at R48.2-billion ($6-billion) as of November 2011, with South African exports at R21.9-billion ($2-billion) and imports from India at R26.3-billion ($3.3-billion).The two countries have set a bilateral trade target of R111-billion ($14-billion) to be reached by 2014.“During our discussions, I also thanked the president for India’s continued development support,” said Zuma.Source: Mediaclub South Africalast_img read more

A Look at The Masterclass Sound Editing of “A Quiet Place”

first_img“A Quiet Place” uses sound design and editing as powerful narrative elements. We took a closer look to see how it crafts this unique soundscape.From playing everyone’s favorite buddy in The Office to writing, directing, and starring in the recent hit indie horror film A Quiet Place, John Krasinski has achieved an inspiring career transition. And while the feature is a great example of genre filmmaking and suspenseful acting, it’s also a surprisingly excellent source of sound editing information and inspiration.So, based on the featurette above, let’s look at some masterclass lessons provided by Krasinski and the team behind A Quiet Place.There’s Always Some Sound“There’s always backgrounds on in a movie, always some sort of ambiance. From a room tone to outside to crickets to wind. And there’s two or three times in the movie where we turn it off completely.” —Producer Andrew FormOne of the first things you realize when you remove dialogue from a film is the power of sound and sound effects. There’s always something, as producer Andrew Form explains. However, once it’s highlighted, it becomes even more powerful when you remove what’s left.The Shades of Quiet“People might assume that a film that’s really quiet and has a lot of silence is a lot easier to do for sound designers than a big bombastic wall-to-wall extravaganza. And in fact the opposite is true, it’s just as hard to do a quiet film if not harder. Every little detail becomes a huge thing. —Supervising Sound Editor Erik AadahlThroughout the film (for those who have seen it, or are interested in seeing it), there is a richness to the sounds, and there are different levels of quiet. Krasinski’s sound team was one of the tops in the business, having worked on many of the Transformer movies and other Michael Bay films; however, they had to find new ways to create dynamics in their design.The Importance of Foley“The foley team, Foley One in Toronto, they did a fantastic job because this a really demanding movie to work on. All those little details are exposed. They’re going to hear every single footstep and it’s got to be just right.” Co-Supervising Sound Editor / Sound Designer Brandon JonesTo keep audiences on their toes, the small and detailed sounds become just as important as the visuals. Foley production (which you can read more about here) became a huge element in the final mix as every little nuance was part of the rising stakes and the film’s suspense.All images from A Quiet Place (Paramount Pictures).For more sound design and editing tips and tricks, check out some of these articles.Sound Editing vs. Sound Mixing: What’s the Difference?Improve Your Edits with Better Audio in Premiere ProOver 120 Free Sound Effects for Videos, Apps, Films, and GamesAudio Gear: 10 Super Cheap Accessories for Your Audio Kit5 Quick Tips: Mixing Audio for Film and Video Projectslast_img read more
