It was an exciting game of football that was not short of some heated exchanges.The first half saw a well taken goal by Derek Maguire and Donegal looked like they may have had the edge over the Tones. Ciaran Williams had a missed chance at goal when the ball hit the post and it was point for point between the teams. White, Mc Guire and Clancy finished with 4 points and at half time the sides were drawn at 1-04 to 0-07.The Wolfe Tones were on a mission in the second half with three successive points and Donegal were struggling to break through their defense. Ferghal Clancy brought the Tir Conaill men back to within a point but it was not enough. Final Score : Donegal 1-07 – Wolfetones 0-12Donegal: P. Boyle, M Canny, J Gallagher, K Mulhern, G Reynolds, K Mc Colgan, B. White, B. Donnelly, D. Maguire, S O Hanlaon, F Clancy, K. Williams, G. FrielWolfe Tones: R. Mc Keown, P. Mc Guirk, D. Dalton, B.

DoyleDonegal Jr B Vs Aidan MacanespiesDonegal Junior Bs were the favorites in their clash against Aidan Macanespies at the Irish Cultural Center in Canton last Sunday. An unsteady start however saw Donegal kick several wide balls but it was not long before the Tir Conaill men settled.Urris man Brian Kelly was a welcome return to the squad having recovered from a knee injury which left him out for the beginning of the season. Neil Brummie and Jonathan Byrne delivered well to the forward line and points were flowing from Pauric Mc Laughlin and Ryan Mc Cready. Mc Cready scored four in quick succession and netted a goal to finish off the first half in Donegals favor.Aidan Macanespies were an improved side at the start of the second half, scoring a goal within two minutes but their domination was short lived with points again from Mc Laughlin and Mc Myler.A Chance at goal came for Macanespies when they won a Donegal kickout but the shot went just wide of the post.A point from Jonathan Byrne and another from Pauric Mc Laughlin was racking up the scoreboard and Donegal were leading comfortably with only minutes to go.

In The Push, Grant Korgan explores the power of possibility through positivity. In this interview, he shares the insight gained through loss.Grant Korgan took the most devastating moment in his life and turned it into an affirmation and a journey.The Push: A South Pole Adventure PremiumBeat: It takes about eighteen minutes into the film before the audience experiences the injury that fractured your spine. And, although we know going in that you suffered it, it still manages to be a horrifying shock. I can only imagine the emotions you must have surrounding the film. What is the experience like for you viewing the film?Grant Korgan: Our goal in making this film was to make a positive impact with our collective efforts, above all else. I truly believe we are most connectable where we are most vulnerable. And, if I believe my own words here, then I knew I was going to need to be all-in — committed fully to share my whole truth — all of it. The emotions I might feel when reliving the worst experience of my life is secondary to sharing my truth — unimportant in the big picture of the film’s ultimate goal.Diving deeper here, knowing the film is touching the audience’s hearts and minds, and is having the positive impact in the world we all hoped it would, was and is the ultimate intention of the film. I have likely seen this film thousands of times, and there are many parts that still bring me to tears. I believe this is a testament to the team that curated the story, and their ultimate success in achieving such an emotive product. That said, I always avert my eyes during the accident footage. I do not need to relive the feelings and experiences that transpired on March 5th, 2010.Grant Korgan in The Push.PB: How did you take the determination to use the footage of your accident and build this documentary on your healing process?GK: This was a decision based on necessity rather than creativity. Ultimately, our team found The Push narrative required this intensive character development, in order for elements such as the South Pole expedition to achieve a desired impact. At this point, it came down to the question of my willingness to “go there.” Unanimously, our post-production team locked arms in a desire to not just tell the story, but tell the whole story. I am extremely proud of the vulnerability and courage everyone on this film showed in expressing our collective truth.Grant Korgan in The PushPB: The film obviously details your horrific injury and your recovery, but it’s about something so much deeper. It seems to be about how goals are necessary to achieve mind over matter, but that cracks let the light in and should be embraced too. Is that in the ballpark of your exploration?GK: The truth is this: We all suffer and we all go through struggle. What happens to us, the difficulties we set out for ourselves, and the challenging happenstance experiences that life inevitably brings to our doorstep, is not what’s important — it is how we deal with our struggle that matters. More specifically, it’s who we become through our frictions that defines our characters and ultimately writes our stories. Bottom line, we are at a choice. No matter how dark the day, there is always something to be grateful for, a micro element that can be nurtured into a macro element, a flicker of light that can be fully developed (you have to do the work) into a flame! When we utilize the unlimited power of positivity, we become unbreakable.The Push.PB: What has the response been from audiences? Anything surprise you about reactions from strangers and friends?GK: It has been a beautiful experience to watch people open their hearts and minds to the messaging of The Push story. Our team has been consistently blown away by the impact, authentic reach, and depth by which audience members have allowed this film into their worlds.Each of the beats in this film mean different things to different people. With open hearts and minds, our team has received messages of hope, forward-movement, love, and personal growth/empowerment — along with “Why on earth would you go to a place that is 40 degrees below freezing!” This human experience is the exact reason we wanted to invest years of our lives into the act of filmmaking — to make a positive impact in the lives of one or many, all around the globe.Grant Korgan in The Push.PB: What’s next for Grant Korgan?GK: Another project has begun! In addition to traveling the nation as a motivational speaker, sharing my book Two Feet Back with new audiences, and recently achieving a life dream of becoming a pilot, my next project will launch on our social media channels and www.grantkorgan.com in the coming months!

The Opposition in Bihar demanded action against Union Ministers and BJP leaders Giriraj Singh and Ashwani Choubey for allegedly “inciting communal strife in different districts after the bypoll results”.“Is this the politics BJP wants to pursue in Bihar? It seems BJP has gone into panic mode after the results and the party leaders are desperate to foment communal disharmony in society for electoral gains in 2019,” Leader of Opposition Tejaswi Yadav said.Earlier, Bihar BJP chief Nityanand Rai had said that “if the RJD candidate Sarfaraj Alam wins the bypoll, Araria would become a hub of terror”. Soon after the result, Mr. Singh seconded Mr. Rai saying, “Araria would now become a place of traitors”. Mr. Yadav took a dig at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar who, on Monday was, obliquely, expressing his displeasure over controversial comments of BJP.“He (Nitish Kumar) should walk the talk and act against people like Choubey, Singh and Rai who are trying to create communal rift in the society”, he said, while adding, “we’re sure his (Mr. Kumar’s) claim of being against divisive politics is as much of a sham as his anti-corruption posturing”.Mr. Kumar, though, has been asserting for the last two days that he would not make any compromise on the issue of “ maintaining communal harmony”.A video which allegedly shows Mr. Singh inciting a crowd to raise slogans against a local police official who belonged to the minority community went viral. The Opposition also demanded the immediate arrest of BJP arrest Arijit Shashwat as well as his father, Mr. Choubey.In Bhagalpur, a clash broke out between two communities after some local BJP leaders led by Mr. Shashawat took out a procession under the banner of Bhartiya Navvarsh Jagran Samiti through Nathnagar without any permission from district authorities. Several people were injured when the clash broke out between members of two communities. The police booked Mr. Shashwat and others but no arrests were made in the case.
West Indies fast bowler Shannon Gabriel plundered five wickets as they scored a stunning victory by bowling out Pakistan for 81 on the final day of the second Test in Barbados on Thursday. (Scorecard)Gabriel, bowling within himself with a focus on hitting line and length on a deteriorating pitch, took 5-11 as the tourists crumbled in their second innings against an impressive West Indies pace attack at Kensington Oval in Bridgetown.Captain Jason Holder claimed three wickets, while Alzarri Joseph picked up the other two as the hosts won by 106 runs.Pakistan’s second innings score matched the lowest Test total at Kensington Oval set by India 20 years ago. It was also their lowest score in the Caribbean and 10th lowest anywhere.Wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed top-scored in Pakistan’s second innings with 23.The series, tied at 1-1, moves to Dominica for the deciding Test starting on Wednesday, where West Indies will have a spring in their step after their first home Test victory in two years.”I think I was trying too hard and trying to bowl too fast (in the first innings), so I just made the decision to stay calm in the second innings,” man-of-the-match Gabriel said at the victory presentation.”It did reverse a bit but I still had to put the ball in the right areas. It was an up-and-down fifth-day pitch, so we knew that all we had to do was put the ball in the right areas.”BEST HAULThe right-arm, fast-medium Gabriel, who took four wickets in the first innings, finished with match figures of 9-92, easily his best haul in 25 career Tests.advertisementHolder hoped for the best after his team collapsed in their second innings to set Pakistan a modest target of 188 but he and his fellow pace battery did not have many runs to play with.”Using cutters and cross-seam deliveries was going to give us help on this pitch,” he said. “It was an important win we needed to keep the series alive. It was important for us to show consistency and we were able to do that here.”Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq lamented having to bat last but also heaped praise on the West Indies bowlers.”You can easily say that it’s about batting on a day-five pitch. We all knew from the first day that it was going to get worse, so that was the difference,” he said.”First innings, we should have got a bigger lead. And finally, on the last day, West Indies bowled their heart out and we were left with no answers.”Because of the height — all the bowlers are tall — it was a tailor-made pitch for them to keep hitting the deck hard and making the ball jump around.”

Edwards and Dr. Fernando Diaz-Barriga, reported that although the fire at the landfill on March 5 can be characterized as an acute health risk, the exposure to health risk threats from the landfill should be considered as a chronic health risk for both the communities close to the landfill and those who work there.The government of Bahamas requested the help of the Pan American Health Organization to conduct a study related to the risk of human health from the fire.The New Providence landfill fire was said to be caused by arson. The fire forced residents of Jubilee Gardens, Victoria Gardens and surrounding areas to evacuate their homes due to the fumes of smoke that covered parts of New Providence. The PAHO visited the island in the first week of April to conduct their study.Many sources of waste at the landfill were identified including waste from cruise ships, marine litter, hospitals and clinics nearby, households and commercial businesses in the area. The PAHO team stated that this is a cause for concern, as the landfill has negative effects on the air, soil, dust and fresh water in New Providence.The team has since provided the Ministry of Health with a list of actions to reduce exposure.#magneticmedianews#newprovidencedump

The properties total about an acre. Only city properties which are not in current use by the city or have no foreseeable city use can be considered for sale.Although there is no requirement that all the units be built as affordable housing, Councilmember Georgette Gomez, who chairs the City Council’s Smart Use and Land Use Committee said, “I’m hoping to see a 100 percent affordable housing project that is maximizing the land to create more units. That’s what I’m hoping.”Ken Sauder, the CEO of the development company that’s negotiating with the city said, “There is not a lot of lands to be sold and the land that’s available is often in areas where it’s very expensive.This is definitely a good deal. This is definitely an opportunity to create some affordable housing.”The full San Diego City Council which must approve the deal later will also look at whether the sale can produce greater economic value for the city.

Preview • 2018 Tesla Model 3 Performance: The future, quicker Enlarge ImageIt’s unclear if Tesla’s OTA update following the investigation was pushed to global Model S and Model X vehicles, or if it was limited to Chinese cars alone. Manuel Carrillo III/Roadshow In April, video surfaced of a Tesla Model S catching fire while parked in Shanghai, China. At the time, Tesla told Reuters it sent a team to investigate the conflagration and determine a cause. Now, a couple months later, Tesla put out a statement — and an update — to close the case of the mysterious blaze.Tesla on Friday posted a statement to its Chinese-language Weibo social media page. According to a translation, Tesla sent an investigative team comprising both Chinese and American technical experts to determine a cause and work with local government departments. The investigation determined that the fire was caused by a single battery module failure at the front of the vehicle. The statement points out that the battery system worked as intended, attempting to contain the fire to its initial location while expelling heat to protect the remainder of the battery pack. Tesla said anyone who had been in the vehicle when the fire started would have had time to leave the vehicle.Tesla said that it also pushed an over-the-air update to Model S and Model X vehicles in order to “protect the vehicle battery and improve battery life,” through updates to the charging and thermal management systems. It’s unclear exactly what has changed, and if this OTA update is limited to Chinese-market vehicles. Tesla did not immediately return a request for clarification on these fronts.All vehicles, electric or otherwise, are more than capable of catching fire. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has, in no veiled terms, been quite adamant that his vehicles are significantly safer from fire than your average gas-powered vehicle. It’s important to note, though, that there are major chemical differences between the two, which is why it wasn’t necessarily the scariest thing when the NTSB reported a Tesla battery catching fire twice after it was involved in a crash. Tesla explicitly recommends monitoring a post-crash battery with a thermal imaging camera to ensure that untouched stocks of lithium aren’t at risk of reigniting a subdued battery fire.

Salman KhanInstagramSalman Khan is yet again in trouble as a Jodhpur court has warned the actor that his bail will be rejected if he does not appear in person in the next hearing of 1998 blackbuck poaching case.According to ANI, the court issued the warning after Salman failed to appear in the last hearing of the case. Salman was convicted in the case on April last year, following which the court had sentenced him five years of jail.However, he was granted bail after spending two nights at the Jodhpur jail. The case dated back during the shooting of Hum Saath Saath Hain. Salman and his co-stars including Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Neelam Kothari and Tabu were accused of killing two endangered blackbucks.While, Salman was found guilty by the court, all the others were acquitted due to lack of evidence. But the Rajasthan government had later filed an appeal against the acquittal of the other actors, following which fresh notices were issued to them.
