BY JAMES MORRISON in CLONES: It may not have the glamour of the Munster Championship, but Down showed real class in despatching Donegal from this year’s Ulster Senior Hurling Championship in Clones.In the end Donegal were well beaten by a resurgent Down side, with 24 points between the sides in the quarter-final match – the curtain-raiser for the footballers of Monaghan and Tyrone.Down’s 1-31 to 0-10 win was fully deserved. But for the first 15 minutes or so, Donegal had held their own despite missing Danny Cullen and Enda McDermott, the latter to a one match ban and the former to a nasty cruciate ligament injury.Ciaran Mathewson had hit five points by that stage to keep Donegal just two points behind the Mourne men (0-08 to 0-06) but he also missed a penalty and it was Down who kicked on, Ryan Brannigan finding the net and giving them a 12 point half-time lead (1-16 to 0-07).Even the best optimist’s hopes of a comeback were soon destroyed as Down’s Scott Nicholson and Johnny McCusker ran riot in the second half, pointing 13 times between them as Donegal managed just three more points in the game.

The solidarity protest held in Muff in support of the people of Gaza.People from across Inishowen gathered in Muff for a vigil in solidarity with the people of Gaza.A large crowd gathered with Palestinian flags and other banners calling for freedom in the the oppressed region.Cllr Jack Murray in GazaCllr Jack Murray, who visited a refugee camp in Palestine this year, paid tribute to the many people who turned out for the event. “I want to commend the huge amount of people who turned out to our vigil in Muff which was held in solidarity with the people of Palestine.“It was an expression of the support of this community with a beleaguered people. It was an opportunity for the people of this area to express our horror at the slaughter of the Palestinian people by Israeli forces,” he said.Cllr Murray visited Palestine recently and said he was dismayed by the second class status which the Palestinians live under.“They are ruled by an apartheid state which refuses to acknowledge their rights as human beings. “The current assault on Gaza is indiscriminate slaughter of men, women and children. Hospitals and schools are seen as fair targets. The UN has recently stated that there is nowhere safe in the Gaza strip for the 425,000 people who have been made homeless by the bombardment.“With this in mind, I welcome the successful passing of a Sinn Féin motion in Donegal County Council which called for the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador to Ireland and condemned the cowardly stance of the Irish government in abstaining on a UN vote on human rights in Palestine.”He added he believes strongly the ambassador should be expelled and that Ireland should not acquiesce with modern day apartheid.PEOPLE OF INISHOWEN SHOW THEIR SUPPORT FOR PEOPLE OF GAZA was last modified: August 2nd, 2014 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 Jack MurrayGAZAInishowenmuffsolidarity

The Border Cave, located in the Lebombo Mountains between South Africa and Swaziland, has been occupied for at least 120 000 years.Archaeologists working on the dig at the Border Cave. (Image: University of Colorado)Lucille DavieThe Border Cave, a rock shelter on the cliff face of the Lebombo Mountains in the far north-east of KwaZulu-Natal, offers a spectacular view 800m down into the plains of Swaziland, but that’s not the best reason to visit it.The cave is remarkable because it reveals a continuous record of occupation for 120 000 years – a valuable reference source for anthropologists.An almost complete skeleton of a child was found among the fossils unearthed – it dates back almost 82 000 years – as well as the remains of five adult hominins in excess of 66 000 years old.For some time now scientists have pondered the question of when human cultures similar to ours emerged. Until the Border Cave findings were made, archaeologists believed that the oldest evidence of the San Bushman hunter-gatherer culture in southern Africa dated back 20 000 years ago.Of significance is the fact that the child was buried in a ritual way, covered in ochre. Although the exact meaning of the ochre is not known, it indicates that 82 000 years ago humans were engaging in symbolic cultural practices.The findings also reveal that 44 000 years ago the inhabitants of the cave were using digging sticks weighted with perforated stones, they wore ostrich egg and marine shell beads, and used notched bones for notational purposes. In addition, they shaped bone points for use as awls – pointed bones for leather working – and poisoned arrowheads, just as modern Bushmen do today.One arrowhead is decorated with a spiral groove filled with red ochre, for easy identification by the owner. A mixture of beeswax, tree resin, and possibly egg, wrapped in vegetable fibres, may have been used for attaching bone points or stone tools to the shaft. A wooden poison applicator retains residues of ricinoleic acid, derived from poisonous castor beans.The child skeleton is stored in the Wits Medical School archives in Johannesburg. The other Border Cave artefacts are stored at the McGregor Museum in Kimberley in the Northern Cape.International scientific co-operationThis research was conducted by an international team which included Wits University researchers Lucinda Backwell and Prof Marion Bamford, and was led by Francesco d’Errico of the University of Bordeaux in France.“The findings at Border Cave show the oldest human behaviour as we know it,” says Backwell, a senior researcher at the Bernard Price Institute for Palaeontological Research.Whereas other finds, like shell beads and stone tools at Blombos Cave and Still Bay, are much older, going back 75 000 years, it is not yet known what they were used for.Backwell was involved in research in 2012 on organic material found at the site, in particular bone arrowheads, ostrich eggshell beads, engraved bones, bored stones, and digging sticks. These artefacts belonged to people who lived in the area, and many of the items are still largely used by Bushmen in Botswana and Namibia, living a traditional lifestyle, hunting and gathering, with their language intact.These artefacts also reveal the shift from the Middle Stone Age to the beginning of the Later Stone Age in South Africa some 56 000 years back, a process that began by “internal evolution”. This shift involved the disappearance of stone spear points in favour of the bow and arrow, and new forms of personal ornaments and gathering equipment.The cave is several kilometres from the small town of Igwavuma in KwaZulu-Natal. It is reached by a rough dirt road and is some 100m below the mountain top, with a 800m drop into Swaziland. The cave is semi-circular, about 40m across and 15m deep.Fortunate discoveryTogether with the Wonderwerk Cave, Klasies River and other sites, Border Cave is on the Unesco World Heritage tentative list.It was discovered in 1940 when WE Barton came from Swaziland to collect bat guano to use as fertilizer. His excavations brought several human bone fragments to light – they were examined by renowned paleoanthropologist Prof Raymond Dart. He had originally visited the cave in mid-1934 but a superficial examination revealed nothing.In 1941 and ’42 a team sponsored by Wits University conducted a more thorough survey. Then again in the 1970s researcher Peter Beaumont of the McGregor Museum in Kimberley uncovered rich rewards – besides the infant and five hominins, more than 69 000 artefacts and the remains of more than 43 mammal species, three of which are extinct, were recovered.Also uncovered was the Lebombo Bone, the oldest known artefact containing a counting system, dating to 39 000 years ago. It is a small piece of baboon fibula incised with 29 notches, believed to be similar to the calendar sticks used by modern Bushmen. It’s older than the Ishango Bone, discovered in Central Africa and thought to be around 20 000 years old.Animal bone fragments revealed the diet of the Border cave people – bushpig, warthog, zebra and buffalo.60 000 years agoIt is generally accepted that by 60 000 years ago all people in southern Africa were anatomically modern, but this is based only on a scant fossil record of human remains from a few sites – Klasies River in the Eastern Cape, Border Cave, and Die Kelders Cave 1 in the Western Cape, and to a lesser extent on the identification of modern features in human remains from Ethiopia, such as Herto.They indicate that the initial divergence of African populations was followed by expansion and local and inter-regional migration.“These processes have contributed to the genetic make-up of contemporary South Africans. The implications of DNA studies are that everyone in the world today can trace their ancestry back to an African origin,” write HJ Deacon and Janette Deacon in Human Beginnings in South Africa, uncovering the secrets of the Stone Age.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Mute your microphone when you are not talking so your breath, background noise, etc. is not being picked up. Clear your schedule for the entire webinar time frame.Let your coworkers know you are not to be disturbed. If possible, close your door and/or let your co-workers/family know that you will be unavailable.Turn off your cell phone. and remove any other potential distractions.Come prepared. Read any related material before the session starts.If calling into the session via phone, do not put your phone on hold if doing so plays music or a message.In most cases, headsets are best. If you are using your laptop’s built-in microphone, realize that any typing you do will be heard by everyone. It will also pick up your speakers and everyone but you will hear an echo of everything coming from your speakers. Some software does a much better job of noise cancellation than others.If you will have the opportunity to interact, a microphone is much better than typing in the chat window. If you don’t have a microphone, everyone has to wait for you to type.If it is a video conference, have a camera. If you are the only one without a camera, your input will have less impact and influence. It’s much easier to talk to a face than a blank screen.Connect early enough to configure your microphone and speakers. If this is the first time using the software, connect at least 20 minutes before the start of the conference. There may be software required for you to install. If it only takes you a few minutes to connect and get setup, feel free to do something else until the meeting starts. Just leave the conference window open.If someone else is in the conference early – ask them if your sound level is okay and to say something so you can verify your speakers volume level.During the session Over the last several years, I’ve taught hundreds of classes online and been a participant in many classes and other web conferencing sessions. Here are what I would consider some basic ‘rules of etiquette’ for participating in an online conference or webinar. There are times when it would be okay to break any of these rules, but be aware of the implications when you do.All of these rules could be summed up with one rule: “Act as you would in a face-to-face meeting”. If you were meeting with the others in a face-to-face meeting or attending a class, would you walk in late? Would you start balancing your checkbook? Would you take other calls? If it’s worth your time to attend, give it your attention. If you had to travel for this meeting, you would be away from your desk and work for a lot longer than just the length of the class or meeting.Guidelines for ParticipantsBefore the session starts Use the chat feature to ask questions or make comments without interrupting the speaker.Keep chats on topic. Remember that everyone can see the public chats. Give feedback. If you don’t have a camera on you, all the speaker knows is that you are signed in. They are assuming you are keeping up with them and understanding everything that is said. They can’t see you yawning, falling asleep or walking away from your computer or your body language. You have to let them know if they are going too fast or have lost you.If you have to leave early, type something in the chat window (private chat if possible) to let the speaker know why you left. Otherwise, they won’t know if you were mad, disinterested, confused or had an emergency.Stay engaged! Resist the temptation to check your email, surf the net, balance your checkbook, etc.Guidelines for Moderators, Presenters, and Discussion LeadersBefore the session startsKnow how to use the web conferencing software you will be using and how to configure your microphone, speakers, and how to use any features you will be using.Practice using the features of the software.Connect early to configure your mic and speakers and make sure everything is loaded properly.Connect early to help others with technical difficulties. If you don’t feel confident enough to answer basic technology questions invite someone to help you.Change your screen resolution if you will be sharing your whole screen or resize the window to the smallest size that will show what you want to show if sharing just a window.Have the windows you will be sharing open and sized correctly.Turn off IM, auto email notifications, and any other possible interruptions – especially if you will be sharing your screenHave a helper who can alert you to problems such as audio or desktop resolution issues or chat questions/comments you may have missed.Welcome people as the join the session.At the start of the sessionStart and end on time (people usually don’t mind if you end early).Make sure the attendees can see your screen or slide before you start.Let everyone know if you are recording the session.Set the ground rules for the session. Explain how you want the participants to participate. Will you be taking questions via chat as they come in or at the end?Be aware that the participants may not have a screen with the same resolution as yours and they probably have only one monitor.During the sessionGo slow. Slower than normal, especially when showing content on your screen. Often there are latency issues that cause your audience to be a few seconds behind you.Keep an eye on the chat discussion.At the end of the sessionThank the participants for coming.Tell where the recording will be found if there is one.What ‘rules’ would you add? What are your pet peeves when attending or leading a conference?This post was published on the Military Families Learning Network blog on March7, 2013.

Delhi Daredevils pacer Kagiso Rabada said that his side lost to table toppers Mumbai Indians in their IPL match here due to some soft dismissals of their batsmen. (POINTS TABLE | SCORECARD)”It was a good outing. Unfortunately, we just did not pull it off. We bowled really well and had a few dismissals, run outs, soft dismissals in the first six (overs). That’s when you are capable of chasing much more than that, said Rabada after the Daredevils lost by 14 runs. (Rohit Sharma praises bowlers after Mumbai Indians defend 142 vs Delhi Daredevils)Rabada was referring to the suicidal run-out of opener Aditya Tare in the fourth ball and the tame dismissals of the other opener Sanju Samson and number three and number four Karun Nair and Shreyas Iyer when a more cautious approach was called for to overhaul the modest target of 143.South African Rabada, used first-up, took 1 for 30 and also led the fightback in the run-chase later, after the Daredevils were reduced to 24 for 6, by making 44 before getting dismissed in the penultimate over.”The pitch was nice to bat on. Unfortunately, this was not our day. They were getting wickets of decent deliveries, nothing spectacular,” he explained.”It’s disappointing that we are losing. At the end of the day, we did not execute quite well. The numbers talk for themselves. But we have trust in our batsmen, we have some young talent. The tournament is far from over,” said Rabada with some optimism after the Daredevils slumped to their fourth defeat of the season in six games.advertisementHe said his side would need a reassessment of their performance but certainly not out of this IPL.”It’s just that last push. We have been in a few tight situations. Actually, all our games have been tight, none of our games have been swinging either way. So, I think we just need to close that up. We are not out of this (IPL) for sure.”Today, our game again got close whereas it should have never been. So, we are a fighting team. We play right till the end. We always throw the first punch most of the time. It’s just about closing it up,” said Rabada.Rabada also had a word of praise for former India stalwart Rahul Dravid’s role in the Daredevils’ team.”Rahul Dravid was a magnificent player. And he has proved to be a good mentor. He knows the game very well and his experience is priceless. He has played the game at the highest level and he has done it exceptionally well,” he said.”He is a great guy to have in the change room specially since we have a lot of youngsters and they are definitely learning from him.
Apoel suffered a 2-1 defeat away to Astana on Thursday, but the night ended in celebration for the Cypriots as Olympiacos’ 1-1 draw against Young Boys in the group’s other game means they are through to the knockout stages of the Europa League for the first time in their history.Astana had to come from behind to defeat ten-man Apoel, but the Nicosia club quickly got over the loss after Olympiacos stopped Young Boys from winning, meaning they cannot be caught by the third or fourth-placed sides with one more game still to play.The game in the Kazakhstan capital was in doubt earlier in the week with temperatures reaching -30 degrees Celsius, but the eventually rose to a modest -8 ahead of kick-off.The home side got an early foothold on the game and the first good effort on goal came on 25 minutes when Apoel defender Astiz cleared the ball into the path of Astana full-back Shomko who hit a rasping effort with his left-foot which whistled past the post with Waterman helpless.But just as they did in three of their previous four Europa League group games this season, it was Apoel who took the lead. A long ball out of defence was flicked on by Aloneftis and Efrem, without taking a first touch, hit the bouncing ball with the outside of his left boot which flew into the top corner, for one of the goals of the competition so far.The joy was short lived however, as Apoel were quickly reduced to ten men. A poor touch from Astiz, allowed Kabananga to intercept and the Spaniard made the hasty decision of bringing him down, leaving the referee no other option but to send him off as he was the last man.Despite being a player down, Apoel started the second half on the front foot, with De Camargo having an effort on goal before Efrem nearly picked out Sotiriou for what would have been a close-range tap-inAstana nearly equalised on 57 minutes when Apoel’s Lago slipped in his attempt to clear, presenting Despotovic with a fine chance, but Waterman spread himself well to deny the striker from six yards.On the hour mark however, the hosts were level. What should have been a routine collection of a harmless corner by Waterman, the Dutchman let the ball slip out of his hands allowing Anicic to equalise from close range.From then on, it was backs to the wall stuff for the Cypriot side, as Astana piled on the pressure. On 64 minutes, after a free-flowing move, Beysebekov lashed into the side netting.Astana’s momentum continued to grow, with Kabananga going close minutes later. The Congolese striker again threatened with a sharp volley on the turn with ten minutes remaining, though Waterman appeared to have it covered.Apoel’s resolve was finally broken on 84 minutes when Shomko’s cross found Despotovic, who edged ahead of Carlao, then hit the post with his first attempt but made no mistake from the rebound.The defeat was quickly forgotten however, thanks to Olympiacos preventing Young Boys from winning in Piraeus and the fact that the Greeks drew rather than won means Apoel can finish group winners with just a draw when the pair meet in the final group game on 8 December in Nicosia.Source: cyprus-mail.comTweetPinShare0 Shares
