Huskies open playoffs against Blades Wed.

first_imgBeaverlodge’s leading scorer, Aaron Dumas, lost the overall scoring race by just one point, to Fort St. John’s Cody Kalb, and is the Blades’ biggest offensive threat. Taylor Jones also provides excellent speed on the wing, and some finishing ability to go with it. As well, Cody Moulds remains one of the NWJHL’s top defencemen, though he will have his hands full with a deep Huskies attack.Kalb says the Huskies will start Ty Gullickson in goal tonight, though he stresses Gullickson and Garrett Muir both remain the teams’ equal number ones. Kalb says he’ll stick with a rotation “as as they keep playing the way they are.”The bad news:The Huskies have learned that two of their key players will be missing for at least the first few games. Captain Payden Wongstedt has been served a three-game suspension for his second match-penalty of the year. Wongstedt allegedly sprayed a Wolverine with a waterbottle in the Feb. 14th win over Whitecourt, earning the misconduct. Wongstedt plays a lot of minutes on the blue-line, and also typically matches up against the opponents’ top lines, meaning the pups will need other defencemen to step up in shutting down Aaron Dumas and co. “We use him on the powerplay situations as well” says Coach Kalb, adding “it’s just one of those things we just have to through.”Advertisement By Jon ZacksThe Huskies are riding a high as they head into the playoffs.The Huskies played their best game of the season, when they beat Whitecourt 4-2 in the final game of the regular season, to ruin the Wolverines’ bid for a perfect season.- Advertisement -After finishing second overall, Fort St. John now takes on the seventh-ranked Beaverlodge Blades.

first_imgCockhillKnockalla Cup Cockhill Celtic 1 Clonmany Shamrocks 0Clonmany started the brighter and Niall Mc Laughlin almost broke the deadlock after 2 mins when he broke on the left and flashed a shot across Cockhill’s goalmouth. In a scrappy 1st half, chances were very few with neither team finding any good passages of play. Jazza Mc Laughlin had an effort after 20 snuffed out by Harkin in the Clonmany goal. Half time 0-0.Cockhill introduced Liam O Donnell and Garbhan Friel at half time and the experienced duo made the difference in the 2nd half as Cockhill began to dominate.Clonmany’s defence was almost breached after 60 mins when Peter Doherty’s long range effort narrowly missed the Clonmany goal. Mark Moran missed a gilt edged chance on 65 mins after a Gerry Gill cutback.Derek Doherty should have scored when he hit the post from 6 yards with the goal at his mercy. Clonmany threatened on the counter on a few occasions but Cockhill finally broke the deadlock after 80 mins when Gerry Gill’s corner was met by Garbhan Friel’s head, the effort was cleared on the line but as the ball fell it was brilliantly finished by Friel when he acrobatically scored an overhead kick into the far top corner. Clonmany threw everything at Cockhill in the last few minutes but couldn’t find an equaliser. Credit to Clonmany who pushed Cockhill all the way and gave as good as they got for long spells. 1-0 to Cockhill final score. KNOCKALLA CUP: COCKHILL CELTIC 1, CLONMANY SHAMROCKS 0 was last modified: March 2nd, 2014 by John2Share 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:Clonmany shamrocksCockhill CelticKNOCKALLA CUPlast_img read more


first_imgAn Anti Bullying Art Exhibition in The Exchange in Buncrana has been a huge hit with the public.The exhibition, which runs for two days only, opened yesterday and continues today between 1 and 7pm.Yesterday was a huge success with almost 300 visitors including a visit from Minister Joe McHugh who was extremely supportive and very impressed by the art included. There is art from children and adults of all ages, and there are approx 250 submissions on exhibit. The purpose of the event was to create a clear representation of how children feel about bullying and how it effects them, and seeing their work all displayed together, and alongside the art submitted by the teen and adult artists, it is a very powerful display.We invite everyone to come along if they are in the area for a few minutes and to bring their children too. It really is beautiful and it shares a strong message that bullying hurts, it leaves scars and children and indeed adults have so much to say about it through their art. ANTI-BULLYING EXHIBITION PROVING A HUGE SUCCESS was last modified: November 29th, 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)last_img read more


first_imgIrish Water has reassured fed-up residents in the Churchill area that it is working towards fixing their water issues.The bottled water on the right and the tapster on the left as shown in the baby’s bottles.Residents contacted Donegal Daily to say they simply cannot use the water in the area because it is unfit for human consumption.The local water supply, which is run off a Private Water Scheme, has resulted in the water regularly turning brown. Locals say they simply cannot bath children or give them water to drink.Instead hundreds of householders are being forced to spend an average of €1,000 on bottled water.But now Irish Water say there is light at the end of the tunnel for the residents.A spokesman told us that they are now working to take over the local water scheme. “The Churchill Group Water Scheme is a collection of private water schemes.“At the request of the Churchill Group Water Scheme Committee, Irish Water is working through a process with the Committee to enable the take over of the scheme by Irish Water.“Engagement is ongoing with both parties working to have the Scheme taken over as soon as possible,” said a spokesman.IRISH WATER SAYS IT WILL MEET WITH CHURCHILL RESIDENTS OVER ‘BROWN WATER’ was last modified: September 15th, 2015 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:Churchilldonegalgroup schemesIrish Waterlast_img read more

Gweedore grandad goes on wild 2,500km cycle for Bumbleance

first_imgKeen cyclist Hughie Gallagher has been inspired to take on an incredible 2,500km challenge this week around the Wild Atlantic Way.The Gweedore man was so touched by the story of a local tot who flew to hospital with BUMBLEair that he wanted to do something himself for the BUMBLEance charity transport service.Three year old Oisin Campbell from Derrybeg recently flew by helicopter to an appointment at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Dublin. The short journey in the arms of his mother, Fionnuala Ni Dhochartaigh, was so much more comfortable than a car journey for little Oisin, who has a rare chromosomal abnormality. The family’s story prompted Hughie to use his passion for endurance cycling to raise funds for more BUMBLEance and BUMBLEair journeys.Hughie Gallagher.

NFC Gets More Flexible with “Open NFC” for Android

first_imgTags:#Android#mobile#news What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Related Posts What he means is that, without something like Open NFC, any smartphone manufacturer that wanted to build phones using chips from another company besides NXP would have had to rewrite a substantial portion of the code found in the Android OS to allow the stack to work with a different NFC controller or combo connectivity chip.What Else Open NFC DoesThe code referencing the NXP hardware is not confined to a thin hardware-specific layer, Martineau said, but is found throughout the stack. With Open NFC’s hardware abstraction layer, however, adapting that stack to new hardware is much simpler.Open NFC itself is not new – it was introduced last year. This is just the first time it has been ported to Android. The Android version of the stack includes the ability to both read and write tags and it supports peer-to-peer communications, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi pairing, interactions with single-wire protocol SIMs and other secure elements and is compatible with smart cards and RFID tags.The stack is also available for WinCE 6.0, Windows Phone 7, Linux 2.6, MeeGo and other mobile platforms in addition to Android. The software download will be available for Android 2.3/2.4 via Inside Secure’s website at the end of the month. It’s free and open-sourced under the Apache License. Developer documentation is available here.Why NFC Matters NFC, a short-range wireless communications technology, has been widely used in other parts of the world, especially in regions within Europe and Asia, but has not yet caught on in North America. But with the launch of Android 2.3 and the newest Google Android flagship phone, the Nexus S, NFC support is built right in.The technology forms the basis for upcoming mobile payments platforms which would allow you to wave your phone at a device at the point of sale in order to make a purchase – no credit cards required. Google is working on a mobile payments service of its own, which would tie together several of its products, including Google Places, Hotpot (local business recommendations) and, of course, Android. Both Apple and RIM have plans for NFC in their phones, too, although less is known about their particular initiatives.More importantly, three of the four leading U.S. mobile operators – AT&T, Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile, have teamed up on a mobile payments service called Isis which will utilize NFC technology. The service will be rolled out over the next 18 months in key markets, says the group.And other startups are taking advantage of NFC as well. For example, person-to-person mobile payments company mPayy interfaces with NFC technology in its mobile payment services for public transit and brick and mortar retailers. Another startup, Bling Nation, is offering stickers that NFC-enable phones that don’t include the necessary hardware.Forrester research analysts pegged NFC as one of the top mobile trends for 2011, saying that in some regions in the U.S. where NFC infrastructure is in place, the technology will begin to move from the trial stages to broader adoption this year.Note: We’ve reached out to NXP for comment and will update when it arrives. Stay tuned.Update: The following is NXP’s statement from Henri Ardevol, Vice President and General Manager, secure transactions, NXP Semiconductors:NXP is committed to the open-source development of NFC APIs and protocol stacks. We’re working with partners from across the eco-systems which include many parties such as Google, handset manufacturers, mobile network operators to support the development of NFC devices and applications. The NFClib from NXP has a classical layered structure, with a Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) providing a clear abstraction of the underlying Hardware and the Operating System.This HAL represents a fraction of the total software stack, as is typical in any connectivity technology implementation. NXP is the only supplier to provide the full stack in open source, including the HAL.The HAL API is located in phHAL4Nfc.h file and is also available to any other HW manufacturer willing to map their Hardware. Ultimately a standard API for Hardware abstraction will be provided by the NCI currently in specification phase at the NFC Forum. NXP plays an active role in the NFC-Forum to drive NFC related standards. The rest of NXP’s code is developed to support a broad range of industry standards, and is not proprietary to any specific hardware platform. By supporting the industry in this way, we believe that this will drive the creation of compelling NFC applications by handset manufacturers and independent application developers alike.” sarah perez Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Semiconductor solutions provider Inside Secure has released an open source NFC protocol stack for Android 2.3, code-named “Gingerbread,” which it will provide to chip vendors, smartphone manufacturers, wireless carriers and software developers for free. The stack, called Open NFC, is the first hardware-independent implementation of NFC (near field communication) for Google’s Android mobile operating system.Prior to this launch, Android’s support for NFC code would only work with NFC chips from the vendor NXP Semiconducters. With Open NFC, however, different NFC chips can be used in Android phones, with less effort than would have been required before.Why Open NFC?Explains Philippe Martineau, executive vice president of the NFC business line for Inside Secure, “Open NFC relies on a separate, very thin and easily adaptable hardware abstraction software layer, which accounts for a very small percentage of the total stack code, meaning that the Open NFC software stack can be easily leveraged for different NFC chip hardware.”“This has tremendous cost, time-to-market and flexibility advantages for NFC chip vendors, smartphone manufacturers and software developers who would otherwise have to contend with rewriting the hardware-specific elements of the Gingerbread NFC protocol stack,” he said.

Legislation Would Repeal Fossil Fuel Ban

first_imgIn a law passed in 2007, the federal government was directed to phase out the use of fossil fuels in new and renovated federal buildings by 2030. Two U.S. senators, one Democrat and one Republican, have introduced a measure that would repeal that plan and replace it with an “all-of-the-above” energy conservation law.Senator John Hoeven (R-N.D.) and Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va) said that their proposed legislation would direct building managers to make efficiency improvements that were identified in congressional audits, and require that existing buildings meet new efficiency standards when they are renovated, E&E News reports. But the bill would repeal the fossil fuel phaseout that’s currently on the books, known as Section 433.“Instead of prohibiting the use of fossil fuels in new federal buildings, we should rely on all of our available energy resources,” a statement at Hoeven’s Senate website says. “By encouraging the use of innovative technologies and practices, instituting reasonable goals and allowing building managers flexibility, we can achieve better environmental stewardship in a cost-effective manner.”The two senators introduced similar bills in 2013 and 2015, setting off a debate that could be repeated this year.The Sierra Club and the American Institute of Architects were among those opposing the repeal when the plan was debated in 2016. In a joint letter, the two organization said, “We simply cannot address the threat of climate change without addressing carbon pollution from the building sector, and Federal facilities must represent the best in American design, technology, and innovation.”The American Gas Association, the Alliance to Save Energy, and others supported the repeal of Section 433, arguing there were more practical ways to increase energy efficiency. A competing letter from two dozen industry and trade groups said that the fossil fuel provision was too complicated for the federal government to enforce. “Thus,” the letter said, “there are continuing concerns that it could discourage comprehensive energy efficiency renovations, stifle innovations and result in increased energy costs for the federal government.”Both Hoeven and Manchin are members of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, and both represent states where energy is an economic powerhouse. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, coal production in West Virginia in 2016 was more than 79 million short tons, the most of any state in the country. North Dakota produced 392 million barrels of crude oil in 2017, second only to Texas.The new bill, unlike earlier measures, does not require that federal buildings reduce energy use by certain percentages each year, E&E said.last_img read more
