HSE warns of ‘widespread cancellations’ of appointments next week Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Pinterest Dail to vote later on extending emergency Covid powers Man arrested in Derry on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences released Google+ Google+ 365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic Facebook WhatsApp Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry Pinterest Twitter Facebook By News Highland – July 30, 2012 A man has appeared in court in Derry charged with assaulting, kidnapping and falsely imprisoning his wife of ten days.Martin McDonagh, 21, from Iskaheen View in the Waterside, denies the allegations.The city’s magistrates’ court heard that the incident is alleged to have happened on Saturday.A police officer told the court that police received a 999 call on Saturday afternoon stating that a woman was lying on Strabane Old Road after she had been assaulted by a man.On the way to the scene, police received another 999 call that a man was seen lifting a unconscious woman off the road and pushing her into a van.A police officer said they stopped a van five miles away in the village of Magheramason.There, the woman who was in a distressed state told police officers that she had got married the previous week.She said she had an argument with her husband earlier in the day in Altnagelvin hospital.She alleged that her husband had punched her and that during the alleged assault she threw herself out of a moving van.She said the alleged assaults started after she had told her husband she no longer loved him.The officer said the injured party had bite marks to her left and right shoulders, bite marks to her right arm, bruising to her cheek and nose, scrapes on her right hip and she complained of a severe pain to her stomach.She said her husband had previously assaulted her using a stiletto heel.The police officer said she objected to the defendant receiving bail because of the gravity of the offences.She claimed that while in custody the defendant asked family members to contact his wife to try to persuade her to withdraw her allegations.The officer said the woman complained that she has been assaulted by her husband on three separate occasions and was so afraid of him she had returned to her family home.Applying for bail, defence solicitor Ciaran McGuinness said the defendant denied the allegations.He said the defendant, who has no criminal record, claimed that his wife had grabbed the steering wheel of the van while he was driving it and jumped out of the vehicle.He said McDonagh then stopped the van, picked her off the ground and put her back into the vehicle.Mr McGuinness said the alleged injured party had yet to record a statement and the police had yet to interview the two people who dialled the 999 emergency number.The district judge refused bail and described the allegations as “extremely serious”.McDonagh will appear againon August 23.

An undated listing on PopShop said about 6,000 square feet at the building was previously leased on a short-term basis starting at $5,000 per day for a minimum of five days and going up to $75,000 per month. Last fall, the median asking rent in the area — Broadway between Houston and Broome streets — was $358 per square foot, or 25 percent lower than a year earlier, according to a report by the Real Estate Board of New York.The landlord’s brokers — the Maglio, Shuster, Zisholtz Commercial Team at Douglas Elliman — said the new lease brings “much needed energy” to the area, but declined to comment on pricing. Newmark Knight Frank, which represented Serhant, also declined.While the renovation, led by INC Architecture & Design, occurs over the coming months, the large windows will be plastered with pop-culture quotes and references to the city. Among the sources will be Jay-Z, the television show “Friends” and comedian Jerry Seinfeld, whose face and words graced the facade of one of Miki Naftali’s condominium projects on the Upper East Side last year.The ground level will house the firm’s in-house film studio. A lounge, show kitchen and iPad displaying listings will occupy the building’s lower level and part of the ground level, with meeting rooms and co-working space for agents on the top two floors.Serhant said his new office, dubbed “SERHANT. House,” was the result of his now 42-person firm outgrowing its inaugural office space in Tribeca. The Soho building, when ready, will become the firm’s headquarters and the team will leave the Tribeca property.“All company resources will be under the same roof,” said Serhant, though he noted that the new lease isn’t a move toward a traditional office. His agents are still outfitted to work remotely; the office is designed to be a meeting hub and will also be accessible to non-agents and employees. Clients and agents in the firm’s membership programs will have access too.To be a Serhant member, agents must have completed the broker’s $500 introductory course. Monthly membership fees start at $10, while “pro” membership packages costing $10,000 to $24,000 include mentorship from Serhant and other coaching services.Serhant is not the only brokerage investing in office space in the city. The Corcoran Group is also renovating an office at the IBM Building in Midtown, which will serve as its new corporate headquarters and the home office of 400 agents.Contact Erin Hudson Email Address* Share via Shortlink Office LeasingResidential Real EstateRetailryan serhantsoho Message* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Celebrity broker Ryan Serhant and his firm’s future office.

The long-vacant storefront was last occupied by Tommy Hilfiger.“We’re just growing too fast,” said Serhant. “So we went on the hunt for a trophy building and found one.”Serhant declined to reveal terms of the lease, but said his firm has taken possession of the landmarked building on the corner of West Broadway and Broome Street and is in the process of a custom built-out.Read moreInside Ryan Serhant’s new brokerageSerhant hires first cohort of agents, executives“Brooklyn Point is a leap up for him”: Gary Barnett on why he tapped Serhant Tags Full Name*
By TIM KELLYThe 11th annual Run for the Fallen once again originated near the tip of Cape May on Wednesday and proceeded North through the county, including a dozen stops in Ocean City on Thursday.Run for the Fallen is one of the more unique and interactive events to honor and recognize members of the United States military who have made the ultimate sacrifice.The event is designed to honor servicemen and women from New Jersey who gave their lives in war or in the line of duty.A team of active duty military members run at one mile intervals to recognize the fallen heroes.Markers are placed at each interval, where the runners and support caravan stop briefly for an individual ceremony.One of the 12 ceremonies in Ocean City was held at Veterans Memorial Park.From its southerly origins in Cape May, the run winds its way north to Holmdel, Monmouth County, at the site of the Gold Star Family Monument at the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans Memorial.In all, 279 fallen servicemen and women are being honored over 196 miles.Frequently, friends and family members and people who wish to say thanks gather at the markers.That was the case at the stop on the Boardwalk near 15th Street, where family members and friends of fallen heroes, father and son Nicholas DiMona II and Nicholas DiMona III, were joined by a contingent of Ocean City officials, residents and visitors.DiMona II was 32 at the time of his death in 2004, and his son was just 20 when he gave his life on March 30. Both were residents of Medford Lakes, Burlington County.Runners travel up 15th Street and the Boardwalk to honor father and son Nicholas P. DiMona II and Spc. Nicholas P. DiMona III.Among those present representing the city were Council Vice President Tony Wilson and Councilmen Antwan McClellan, Bob Barr and Michael DeVlieger.Wilson said he was moved by the ceremonies and was particularly struck by the sight of veterans of the Vietnam War, now in their 70s, embracing. He called it “pretty moving.”The military members who took part in the ceremony were “incredibly respectful” in their reverence toward the fallen and in their interactions with the family members and friends, DeVlieger said. “It was really beautiful,” he noted.Relatives and friends on hand included mother and grandmother of the fallen, Elma DiMona, Michael Saunders, Susan Ebbitt, Carl and Barbara Obermeier, (uncle and aunt of the heroes) Kris Saunders, Tracey Feighery and Alex Feighery, a member of the run team and the best friend of Nicholas DiMona III.Councilman Antwan McClellan, third from left holding miniature American flag, joins in honoring fallen father and son Nicholas DiMona II and Nicholas DiMona III.The Ocean City stops and those honored were:Captain Maria Ortez and Sgt.

SAINT CLAIR, Mo. – Performance Engineering and Manufacturing returns to the IMCA sponsorship ranks this season with product awards for Deery Brothers Summer Series and Hawkeye Dirt Tour drivers. The Saint Clair, Mo., company will give a set of standard quick change gears to the pole starter at main events in both the Late Model and Modified series. PEM had given awards to Deery competitors during its initial stint as an IMCA marketing partner from 2008-2010. “We had worked with the Summer Series for a while and wanted to get involved again with IMCA,” explained PEM Sales Manager Randy Harrison. “We had good response to our involvement with the Deery Series and want to do the same with the Hawkeye Dirt Tour.” Certificates will be mailed from the IMCA home office the week following each event. Product certificates will be redeemable through PEM dealers. The Deery Series opens April 4 at Crawford County Speedway while the first Hawkeye Dirt Tour show is slated for Tuesday, May 12 at Benton County Speedway.Recent expansions to the company’s product line are quick change spools, ring and pinions, lower shafts and yokes. In addition, the new PEM-manufactured quick change rear ends have recently been displayed at trade shows around the country.“We really like IMCA racing. It’s the backbone of our sport,” Harrison said. “We look forward to working with these racers again and we are excited to add some of the IMCA crown jewel events like the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s and The Duel In The Desert.” PEM also manufactures drive train components such as 9-inch Ford gears, GN Floaters and gun-drilled axles. More information about PEM products is available by calling 636 234-0975, on Facebook and at the www.pemracing.com website. “The return of any former partner is welcomed, but the renewal of partnership with PEM is especially timely with the new rear end options in place for IMCA Modified drivers in 2015,” noted Kevin Yoder, director of marketing for the sanctioning body. “We hope to see a real variety of drivers securing the pole starting position in both tours throughout the season and receiving a free set of gears from PEM.”
Role-4 BroadcastThere is need for the mass media channels to broadcast the signal to the intended recipients. Radios, Internet (Streaming) and Television are the commonly used channels.Role-5 Marketing and SalesTaking football for the fans to watch on Television or listen to on radio does not make commercial value to the product chain until commercial partners that pay are brought on board. It is therefore paramount that marketing and sales efforts must be put in place like any other business to get the money. Professionals must be recruited to play this roleRole-6: The Consumers RoleBecause of the popularity of football, many companies would love to position their brand and sales messages to the football fans consuming football off the media. Most times the fans pay subscription fees for the access to football channels. This is the source of money to football that is used to pay all value addition entities along the product production chain and also pay FUFA, the Clubs and Players to reinvest into making a better productThe Current TrendsThe old school football persons still don’t understand that every player in the product chain must be paid. Many people are stuck in the era of volunteers who did not have the expertise to make money.CAF and its Members sold the television rights of the CAF Competitions and Events to French Company called “Lagardere”. This company does not own any TV Channel nor any Camera but has turned around CAF & Its Members Revenues tenfold.Let us welcome Sports Broadcasting, an indigenous Ugandan Company that has the vision to put Ugandan Sport to the living rooms of Ugandans. They don’t have to own a channel when Bukedde, UBC, NTV, NBS, BBS are in the business of Channels. Is it not that simple?***Magogo is the President of FUFA***Share on: WhatsApp The recently signed deal between UPL and Sports Boradcasting LtdKampala, Uganda | MOSES MAGOGO | COMMENT | My experience is that leadership is about seeing tomorrow from the position of today. Humanity naturally resists change and introducing new ideas definitely meets a lot of resistance of moving from the comfort zone. It is also true that you cannot achieve what you have failed to achieve over years using the same means.When I first said that Football today needs people to provide the brains more than the money, I was quoted out context, ridiculed and my comments were politicized to mean to target certain individuals. As a leader I had seen what tomorrow can bring and here we are.I am very proud that today many voices have joined my call and belief that Ugandan Football can generate its own money if brains are put to useHowever, in the days of liberalized media and the advent of Social Media where everyone has direct access to masses without control of quality of content, a new challenge has emerged of a few individuals positioning themselves to claim to understand what they have no idea about.I am an Engineer and I can never criticize nor challenge a surgeon. This is what professionalism calls for. Many pundits and bloggers with the experience of watching television football have become experts of Broadcasting Business. I have found it prudent to share my one cent of understanding;Football eMedia Business is a huge industry that is employing many people and making profits for those involved. It is a new thing in Uganda and definitely not many people understand the conceptThere are 6 Roles involved to make the business a going concernRole-1: Rights OwnersFUFA, Clubs and the Athletes create the sport of football that is loved and followed by many people. The modern game now demands lots of monies to identify, nurture, prepare and present players or teams that entertain fans. Therefore the owners of the sport have the treasure of the ownership of a product (Media Rights) that can be sold to masses. Therefore Role-1 is to allow other parties to record the proceedings of the matches.Role-2: ProductionUsing Media (Television, Radio and Internet), proceedings of a match are brought to the fans wherever they may be. Rights are useless if not commercialized. Role-2 is played by the Production team that uses the Cameras, and related equipment to capture the proceedings of the matches in textual, pictorial, audio and video formats. It is at this point that football has become what is called a signal.Role-3 TransmissionThe signal that is created at the match venues has no commercial value if not transmitted for the access of the fans. Transmitting a signal from one part of the world or country to the other takes it through several hands. There is a whole engineering of transmission that will ensure quality and timely reception of the signal is achieved. This is when High-Definition, Digital and Satellite terminologies come into play.
The latter stages of this season’s Champions League could go ahead in August in Lisbon in a “Final Eight” format, according to reportsParis, France | AFP | As football around Europe returns after a long suspension, UEFA is set to announce the format for the latter stages of the Champions League at a key meeting on Wednesday which will also raise the thorny issue of the postponed, pan-continental Euro 2020.The Champions League was frozen in mid-March before the last-16 stage had been completed, as the sport ground to a halt when the coronavirus pandemic began to take hold.Initially, European football’s governing body had hoped to finish its flagship competition — along with the Europa League and women’s Champions League — by the end of June.It soon became clear that such an outcome was overly optimistic, and during the peak of the pandemic in Europe any prospect of finishing the season at all looked slim.Nevertheless, UEFA has for some time been working on a way of completing its season in August, which looks feasible as leagues restart and the European death toll from Covid-19 slows.With that in mind, the Executive Committee meeting, to be held by videoconference, is set to approve the idea of a “Final Eight” in Lisbon, as widely reported by media across Europe in recent days.That would mean finding a way to play out the four remaining last 16, second legs before bringing together all the quarter-finalists in Portugal’s capital for a series of one-off games to crown the European champions. According to reports, the final would be on August 23.In the current context, grouping all teams together in one place and reducing travel is the wisest solution, although it remains to be seen how many fans, if any, could attend.Football in most countries is being played behind closed doors, yet UEFA’s meeting comes in the same week many EU member states — Portugal among them — opened up once again to foreign visitors.The final was scheduled to be played in Istanbul on May 30 and only last week Turkey’s Sports Minister, Mehmet Kasapoglu, expressed confidence that the city would not lose out.“I have no doubt it will take place in the best way in Turkey. We’re confident that we will receive good news on June 17,” he said.However, last month the New York Times reported that Istanbul could instead be awarded a future final, when it is safe for fans to travel in large numbers. – Fewer hosts for Euro 2020? –Gdansk in Poland was slated to host the Europa League final but that competition also looks set to finish in a watered down “Final Eight” format.German newspaper Bild reported last week that the closing stages would be switched to the region around the western city of Cologne.A similar format could be brought in for the women’s Champions League, the final of which was due to be played in Vienna.UEFA’s announcements will have a knock-on effect on when next season can start around Europe. Everything could be derailed by a second wave of coronavirus infections.Euro 2020 was meant to be in full swing by now, but postponing the tournament by 12 months was one of the first big decisions taken as the crisis intensified.Staging the European Championship in 12 different countries, from as far apart as Baku and Saint Petersburg to Dublin and Bilbao, already looked questionable before the virus struck.Now UEFA must potentially make some big decisions about its format, and president Aleksander Ceferin recently hinted that the number of host cities could be reduced.In an interview with beIN Sports, he admitted to having “some issues” with three unnamed cities. “In principle, we will do it in 12 cities. But if not, we are ready to do it in 10, nine or eight,” he said.That could leave some hosts — just like Istanbul — less than happy, making this week’s meeting a potentially delicate diplomatic operation for UEFA to go along with all the logistical challenges.

Gardaí in Donegal are advising the public to take extra precautions to secure patio doors following recent break-ins.The warning comes following a burglary and attempted burglary in Ballybofey last week.Two houses were targetted in Blackrock Drive between 1am and 3am on Wednesday 27th March. Entry was gained to one home through the back patio door. A handbag and sum of money were taken, along with items of sentimental value to the owners.A neighbouring house was also targetted but no entry was gained, according to a garda spokesperson. A lock on the back patio door was damaged in the attempted break-in.“The locks pop on the patio door,” warned Garda Grainne Doherty in the weekly community update.“There are locks specifically for patio doors which are a good investment,” she added. An appeal has been launched for information relating to the incidents, anyone who may be able to help is asked to contact Letterkenny Garda Station on 0749167100.Gardaí are specifically calling on taxi drivers who may have had dashcams in operation while working in the estate in the early hours of Wednesday 27th March to get in touch.Witnesses can also provide information to the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.Warning over patio doors following home burglaries was last modified: April 3rd, 2019 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:Ballybofeyburglariescrimepatio doorssecurity
6 November 2008Following a strategic cooperation agreement between Fifa and the African Union of Broadcasting (AUB), spectators in sub-Saharan Africa will be able to view the 2010 Fifa World Cup free of charge.According to Fifa, the agreement ensures the broadcasting of all 64 World Cup matches live on free-to-air television and radio in 41 African territories in English, French and Portuguese.Fifa has selected the AUB as its partner for the region based on its capacity to reach the largest possible audience, as well as its commitment to broadcasting development and tailored programming and content exchange in sub-Saharan Africa.“The AUB has shown considerable strengths in uniting broadcasters under one umbrella to ensure that all sub-Saharan Africans will be able to have access to the radio and TV coverage of and around the 2010 Fifa World Cup,” Fifa President Sepp Blatter said in Cotonou, Benin, last week.“We always promised that 2010 would be an African World Cup, and with today’s cooperation agreement we have made a big step towards achieving this goal.”‘Win in Africa with Africa’The partnership extends to the coverage of the men’s and youth tournaments to be staged in Africa in 2009 and 2010, as all broadcasters have to meet jointly agreed criteria in the framework of Fifa’s “Win in Africa with Africa” initiative to be eligible for the rights.The criteria covers a range of commercial and technical requirements designed to ensure the development of football’s technical and commercial infrastructure on the African continent far beyond 2010.African production centreFifa and the AUB will also establish an African production centre at the International Broadcast Centre in Johannesburg during the World Cup to ensure customised, high-quality coverage for African viewers.The strategic cooperation agreement also provides for the establishment of the AUB-Fifa Broadcast Academy“It accords with the goals of our union for sustainability and will facilitate the achievement of one of the goals we adopted as legacies for Africa from the world cup in South Africa, namely capacity development of broadcasting in Africa,” said AUB chief executive Lawrence Atiase.“We are fully committed to playing our part, and we thank Fifa for placing their trust in the AUB’s ability to deliver.”Source: BuaNews
