AllIreland final report ODonnells dream day fires Clare to victory

first_imgClare defenders unable to stop Nash (INPHO/James Crombie)The Rebels’ resurgence continued after the break and they managed five points to just one for Clare in the third quarter, a Pa Horgan free levelling the match at 3-10 to 1-16.That was as close as Jimmy Barry-Murphy came to a 31st All-Ireland title for the Rebels. Clare scored 2-6 to Cork’s 2-0 in a blistering finale that served as a perfect crescendo to the summer.Winter might be bleak but on a day like today, that hardly seems to matter.Points from O’Donnell, John Conlon and Colin Ryan steadied the ship for Clare but when Seamus Harnedy placed the ball in the corner just out of Kelly’s reach with a deft groundstroke, Cork were poised for one last chance.O’Donnell hoisted up in front of Hill 16 by his team-mates (INPHO/Donall Farmer)But a stunning solo effort from Conor McGrath, topped by points from Kelly and O’Donnell gave Clare a firm grasp on the title with five minutes to play.Late goals from Stephen Moylan and Clare sub Darach Honan made sure the drama kept up till James McGrath’s final whistle. It sounded the end of one of the great hurling summers, but Clare won’t mind.Scorers for Clare: Shane O’Donnell 3-3, Colin Ryan 0-7 (0-6f, 0-1 ’65), Conor McGrath 1-1, Darach Honan 1-0, Tony Kelly 0-3, John Conlon 0-2.Scorers for Cork: Patrick Horgan 0-9 (0-7f), Seamus Harnedy 1-2, Stephen Moylan 1-1, Anthony Nash 1-0 (1-0f), Conor Lehane 0-2, Patrick Cronin, Lorcan McLoughlin 0-1 each. Clare 5-16 Cork 3-16IMPOSSIBLY, IT WAS a final that did justice to the vintage Championship that preceded it.After 72 classic minutes that can stand proudly alongside the best in memory, living or otherwise, Clare are the 2013 All-Ireland Champions.In a final with more twists and turns than a game of snakes and ladders, it was fitting that the man who stole the show wasn’t even on the team-sheet this morning.Shane O’Donnell was a late inclusion at full-forward for Clare. By the 19th minute, the 19-year-old from Eire Óg had scored a hat-trick in front of 82,276 in Croke Park; by the final whistle, he had 3-3 and an All-Ireland medal.O’Donnell’s third put Clare 3-6 to 1-6 up in a battle which very quickly lived up to the thrilling memory of the drawn game three weeks ago.There was just five minutes on the clock when captain Pat Donnellan, lining out in midfield, burst down the centre of the field and shipped off to O’Donnell who finished past Nash. Eight minutes later, Conor O’Sullivan’s slip was punished by Conor McGrath who laid the chance on a plate for his ravenous full-forward.O’Donnell celebrates his second goal with Podge Collins (INPHO / Donall Farmer)This was always a game that Cork keeper Anthony Nash was going to play a part in and, in remarkable fashion, he drew the Rebels back into the game on 16 minutes. Twelve Clare defenders, including keeper Pa Kelly, stood between Nash’s 21-yard free and the goal but with power and precision, he found a way.O’Donnell’s hat-trick goal pushed the gap back out. Clare were eight up before Cork closed the half with four unanswered points to leave it 3-9 to 1-11 at the break, a lot closer than Clare’s dominance deserved. Clare: Patrick Kelly; Domhnall O’Donovan, Cian Dillon, David McInerney; Conor Ryan, Brendan Bugler, Patrick O’Connor; Pat Donnellan (c), Colm Galvin; John Conlon, Tony Kelly, Colin Ryan; Podge Collins, Shane O’Donnell, Conor McGrath.Substitutes: Cathal McInerney for Galvin (52), Nicky O’Connell for Collins (60),Darach Honan for O’Donnell (67), Seadna Morey for Kelly (71).

Column Every day X case legislation is delayed is a day womens

first_imgLAST FRIDAY, over 100 civil society organisations, trade unions, politicians, activists, artists, and academics signed a statement calling on the government to enact legislation for the X case before the summer. The statement demanded that this legislation include the risk of suicide as grounds for abortion as well as provision for termination if a foetus has a fatal abnormality and cannot survive.Opinion polls have consistently shown that a significant majority of people support abortion when a woman’s life is at risk. Yet, twenty-one years on from the X case, and several months after the death of Savita Halappanavar, legislation to protect women’s lives is still not in place. Every day this is delayed is a day women’s lives are at risk.Abortion in cases of suicideIn December 2012, the government committed to introducing a combination of legislation and regulations to implement the existing constitutional right to a lawful abortion in Ireland. At present, however, there is a real danger that this promised legislation could be stalled further and made so restrictive as to render abortion in cases of suicide risk inaccessible.A memo about the proposed legislation was set to go to Cabinet at the beginning of February only to be withdrawn last minute and replaced by a “verbal update” from Minister Reilly. Media reports stated that the delay was due to a proposal by the Minister which would require up to five doctors to approve abortion where there is a risk of suicide. Such a proposition is entirely unworkable and will fail to deal adequately with what the European Court of Human Rights called the “striking discordance” between the theoretical right to a lawful abortion in Ireland and the reality of its practical implementation. The assertion in the Action on X statement that no more than two medical practitioners should be required to approve abortion is a direct response to this impractical proposal.In addition to this setback, there are indications that the legislation may be further delayed. Minister Reilly has been quoted on several occasions as saying that he expects to bring forward the Heads of a Bill before Easter on 31 March. However, in response to a parliamentary question on 21 February, he stated that the government intends to publish the Heads of a Bill “in the next few months”. It is therefore critically important that the 85 per cent of us who support this legislation make our voices heard by contacting our TDs.State-wide access to abortionThe Action on X statement also calls for State-wide access to abortion – a woman whose life is at risk because of her pregnancy should not be denied a termination because she lives in a rural area. As well as this, provision should be made for abortion in cases of fatal foetal abnormality. Every week, women and their partners travel to the UK to terminate much-wanted pregnancies because the foetus has no chance of survival. Liverpool Hospital alone sees two couples a week. Every week we force women to endure unnecessary psychological, physical and financial hardship. Yet, as the Irish Council for Civil Liberties has highlighted, the Irish government itself has argued in the European Court of Human Rights that it is possible to interpret Article 40.3.3 of the Constitution as permitting termination of pregnancy in cases of fatal foetal abnormality.We have already waited too long. We have watched the unnecessary and tragic deaths of women like Sheila Hodgers, Michelle Harte, and Savita Halappanavar. This must never happen again. Legislation for X must be introduced by summer with no restrictions that make abortion unavailable in practice. The government must acknowledge that women’s lives matter.Alison Spillane is a member of Action on X and the Abortion Rights Campaign. Action on X will hold a Rally for X starting from the Central Bank on Dame Street at 6pm this evening. For more information on the 10 Days of Action see www.abortionrights.ielast_img read more

Paypal hands over 1000 IP addresses of Anonymous attackers

first_imgWhen Anonymous took up arms against Paypal last year for freezing Wikileaks‘ account and launched DDoS attacks against the billing and payment company, some of the attackers apparently left behind enough information to be traceable. Paypal is reporting that they’ve handed over a list of 1,000 IP addresses to the FBI of individuals they believe to be behind part of the attack.The problem with investigating DDoS attacks is that they’re usually orchestrated by zombie computer systems – or computers that are infected with Trojans, often unknown to the user. Those systems then, without the owners’ knowledge, take part in large-scale attacks against websites. Similarly, masking your IP address is a basic skill for hackers – it’s essentially the equivalent of hiding your face when you rob a bank: if you don’t, you’re not terribly clever.To that end, there’s no way to know whether the list of IP addresses are just a dump of attacking systems or whether Paypal’s investigation turned up some indication that these thousand IP addresses were orchestrating the attack. The statement from Paypal claims that the dump contained IP addresses that “sent malicious network packets” during the attacks, which isn’t very descriptive. They do allude to the notion that the addresses they handed over are some of the IPs that sent the most data.For example, one of the IP addresses belonged to a computer in a home of a family in Arlington, Texas, and the PayPal data was used as evidence to get a warrant to search that home. Expect the same for the other systems on the list, if they can be found as easily. There’s no doubt that the FBI is already sifting through the list to determine whether any of the other addresses match individual households or known activists.via The Hacker Newslast_img read more

Dr Mario World Is Nintendos Next Mobile Game

first_img Mario Kart Tour, Nintendo’s upcoming smartphone version of the massively popular kart racer, won’t be hitting iOS and Android until this summer. However, when it does arrive (hopefully with fewer microtranscations) it won’t be the only new mobile Mario game. Nintendo announced that its next mobile game is Dr. Mario World, also coming this summer. Check out this new trailer for the game coming July 10 and try to figure out how Bowser got a medical license.All we got was this logo, but it’s safe to assume the game will bring Dr. Mario’s classic puzzle gameplay to phones where it’ll be a great fit. If your only experience with Dr. Mario is playing as him in Smash Bros., Dr. Mario the game is about matching colorful pills onto the correct viruses to eliminate them. It’s similar to something like Tetris but requires different kinds of strategies.Nintendo says Dr. Mario World will be a free-to-play game with optional microtransactions. While we would love it if more people would just pay for mobile games, after the underperformance of the premium Super Mario Run I guess Nintendo just can’t ignore the business models that actually succeed on mobile no matter how exploitative they are. It worked for Fire Emblem Heroes. Maybe it’s just a commentary on the broken economics of the health care system, just like Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp and the housing market.One last curious detail about Dr. Mario World is that it is being co-developed with LINE Corporation and NHN Entertainment. LINE is a massively popular Japanese messaging app, so that should give the game a lot of reach at least in its home country. It also suggests that maybe Nintendo is rethinking its ongoing mobile collaborations with DeNA, a mobile gaming company it bought a percentage of. Mario Kart Tour will be the last of the initial five-game DeNA deal (kicked off by the now-shuttered Miitomo), and Nintendo has already published one mobile game with no DeNA help at all, Dragalia Lost by Cygames.Nintendo politics aside, Dr. Mario World should be a great way to vet that plumber’s medical license on your phone this summer. Here’s what we think some future Nintendo mobile games might be. Stay on target ‘Super Smash Bros.

The New Turks and Caicos is Less Environmentally Appealing Than the Old

first_img Local Atty says Govt going against public consultation; says NO to taller resort plan Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 4 Nov 2014 – The new Turks and Caicos is less environmentally appealing than the old one. “Can we cope with more people now? Are we in a position to handle it, can we deal with the garbage, can we deal with the plastic, can we deal with oil from engines and cars, can we deal with more anchors on the reef and more sun creams in the ocean. And there is an endless amount of reasons as to why I think we should question the next step forward rather than jumping with two feet because we need development.” Is the Turks and Caicos going to fall into the pattern of other global hot spots by becoming too developed to maintain luxury status? “So, the real question is, ‘A’ is this going to be strategically a high end destination or is this going to go toward the mass market? And can we actually we actually afford the environmental impact of the mass market and (if so), for the benefit of whom?”And questions about what size do we want to grow the nation’s resident population; currently at around 31,000. Some of the ideas last night at the Natl Tourism Strategy public meeting held in Providenciales. Those who have been functioning in the industry for decades piped up at the meeting, calling for stronger education and environment protections to preserve the essence of the TCI experience. “I believe it isn’t too far gone that we cannot turn it around. But if we continue to concentrate on mass tourism, high buildings and more… and not take into consideration the environment and the educational program that pass on down into the school to make the child grown to understand to respect the environment”Mass tourism with skyscrapers and extreme development for some was not the way forward. And along with losing some of the eco-appeal, one said the country is also losing its friendliness due to the animosities among workers in the industry. When the TCI Tourism Board Director, Ralph Higgs responded to these concerns he said there is no plan for mass tourism for the islands, but the plan is a national one. “But in North and Middle Caicos and South Caicos and Salt Cay it has not happened fast enough and as a result we see our communities dying. Forty years ago you would recall in Salt Cay there may have been two to three hundred people; today there are probably 60. In Middle Caicos, years ago there used to be a thousand plus people, now there are two or three hundred, so this plan also has to address what is not happening in our sister islands and how we can tweak or adjust or adopt a policy that will give these islands a chance.”On a more highly critical side, Lloyd Stubbs, President of the Independent Taxi Drivers said the Hotel and Tourism Association is dictating to the Tourist Board. “In essence although you say mass tourism doesn’t exist; the all-inclusive have branded themselves as mass tourism and the other resorts are taking that. Grace Bay Club as much high end as they are doing, they are involved in contracts. Before even the tour operators were able to sell, now the only way you sell now is if you pay those companies a percentage. The indigenous Turks and Caicos is being shut out of tourism daily and that’s what is part of the frustration.”And said the entire process seems designed to shut locals out of contributing. “Put a sign by Sweet T’s, one sign, Sweet T’s if you need a location. All of us in this room go to Sweet T’s if you advertise to check this thing here, you will be more than the Hotel Association, they are not a Tourism Association… more than the Hotel Association, here.” That thought of disregard was naturally refuted by the panel which included Kingsley Been of the Tourism Board, Wesley Clerveaux PS at the Office of the Premier and Gary Brough, Managing Director of hired consultants KPMG.

PDM says PNP Leaders sold Crown Land and access to Taylor Bay

first_imgThe PDM Chairman also charges the immediate past premier, Rufus Ewing of selling out on crown land at a beach, saying the current Government Administration is now busy trying to sort out these predicaments.“The people want access to their beaches.  In fact, the latest selling of beach access in this country took place not too long ago under a Rufus Ewing led PNP Government.  Our Leader and Premier is correct when she says, “we are constantly bogged down by having to fix and clean up PNP mess”.By law, public access to beaches has to be designated and registered.   There is no registered access at Taylor Bay Beach because all of the land was reportedly sold off to private developers.#MagneticMediaNews#TaylorBayBeach Related Items:#magneticmedianews, #TaylorBayBeach Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaicos, January 4, 2018 – Providenciales – The PDM Administration says the Taylor Bay Beach problem where beach access is absent for the General Public wanting to enjoy the spot in the Chalk Sound area is a monster of the PNP’s making.Chairman of the PDM, Doug Parnell joins the fiery discussion on Taylor Bay Beach which erupted following an enraged confrontation on New Year’s Day.   The argument and our subsequent report is gaining national and international attention on Magnetic Media social media strings; and most find the homeowner who argues that no one is allowed onto the beach because ‘he owns it’ to be in the wrong.The PDM Party Chairman turned his attention to revelations of what caused the beach access problem in the first place.   According to Douglas Parnell, it was under a former PNP Administration that Crown Land was sold on Taylor Bay Beach.   Parnell in a media release says it is that maneuver which now makes it problematic for residents to access the public spot without crossing private land.“It is of their own manufacturing which when we fast forward the clock to 2018 from their 1991-1995 decision making we see a young Turks and Caicos Islander being choked off from some of the remaining beaches because of their decision 23 years ago to sell off choice pieces of crown land.” Twenty three years ago, current Leader of the Opposition PNP, Washington Misick was the Chief Minister.   Parnell said the Wednesday press conference held by the Leader of the Opposition was more about an internal political rivalry at the Progressive National Party.“In fact, what is comical is that Mr. Misick’s, Washington that is, press conference was a political volley attempt at the young people who he fears will rush head first into a revolution on the beach at Taylor Bay at the call of his younger brother.  The sibling rivalry is well alive in the PNP.”Indeed, Michael Misick on Wednesday announced a demonstration, of a most unusual kind.   The younger brother of Washington Misick and former Premier is promoting a party with DJ music for Taylor Bay Beach this Saturday, January 6.   In a move he has themed, ‘stand up for our rights’ and ‘let’s save our country’, Michael Misick said the entire country is invited.Parnell, Member for Cheshire Hall and Richmond explained in his Wednesday statement to media that, “We take note too of the call by Mr. Michael Misick to take back the beach he choked off from us poor Turks and Caicos Islanders and ask him to tell the truth to the people.  He should clear his name of the wrong doing he has inflicted on the good people of the TCI while sitting in office from his many decisions which are not before the court.” Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Manner of pedestrian death undetermined

first_imgThe Portland man struck by a truck on Interstate 5 early Monday died of severe blunt force trauma, but the manner of his death is undetermined, according to the Cowlitz County Coroner’s office. Zeus Perez, 41, was standing in the freeway north of Woodland shortly after 2 a.m. Monday when he was hit by a tractor-trailer, but Washington State Patrol troopers said they did not know why Perez was standing there.

Reich moved the rig into the center lane and struck something. Perez, the driver of the Prius, was apparently in the center lane of the freeway wearing dark clothing, Finn said. Perez was pronounced dead at the scene. There were no other passengers or witnesses present.last_img read more
