LEAVING’S A CERT FOR B.J. AND HARPS!Banda-monium has hit Donegal. PIC by Geraldine Diver.Well, that’s the Leaving done and a bloody tough one it was. Seven years we’ve been at it, testing times all round, but we’ve finally done it. Leaving the First Division and heading to Premier ranks.Not, of course, all thanks to B.J. Banda but there’s no doubt the 17 year old Leaving Cert student has passed his way into Finn Harps folklore with that late, late header that sealed promotion and left those of us with nerves of soft tissue eternally grateful that we wouldn’t have to endure a penalty shoot-out.Not that I was going to endure it. I had plans to vacate the ground at the end of extra-time and head up Ballybofey Main Street to somewhere quiet – a veteran of too many failures in such shoot-outs where Harps are concerned. Okay then, two defeats in penalty deciders but that’s still two too many.If you missed Finn Park on Friday night, I’m extremely sorry for your trouble. You missed one of the experiences of a lifetime, an enthralling match that could have gone either way and was finally settled by a teenager who wasn’t even born when Kevin McHugh began knocking them in.Walshyby lifelong Finn Harps fan Paddy ‘I’m No Banda-wagon Jumper’ WalshFinn Park has seen some big games down the decades but few, if any, can have rivalled this one for atmosphere and drama.Due to the availability of tickets – the only ones left in Michael Murphy’s shop in Letterkenny left choice limited – I found myself with regular fans, the two Brians, on the opposite side of the stand. That’s a rare vantage point for this fan’s perspective – indeed it may be that I’d have to go back to 1969 and Harps opening competitive fixture against Shamrock Rovers to remember the last time I watched a match from there.Due to the absence of elevated ground, I couldn’t see Mickey Funston squeezing home the opening goal from an angle so tight he ended up on the by-line watching the ball roll – just about – over the Limerick goal-line (I did view it later courtesy of social media sites and the drone that was flying overhead at the time) but I certainly heard the reaction. 1-0 to Harps and the tie all square and all to play for.And that penalty shoot-out looming large in the minds and fears of all home fans until B.J. twisted his neck to glance that header home and send us skywards and most of the bench racing across the pitch to join in the manic merrymaking on the touchline.And a few more minutes of agonising over every Limerick foray into home territory – what a save by Ciaran Gallagher in those closing stages – until the referee’s whistle signalled absolute euphoria and the leaving of the First Division behind. GLORY MOMENTJust a minute before a certain Leaving Cert students gets an A for his stunning extra-time winner. Pic by Geraldine Diver.Just over three minutes of extra-time left. Throw-in to Harps on the right. McNamee prepares to take it and sees McNulty’s hand going up in the penalty area. He flings the ball over and the Derryman reacts quicker than the Limerick defenders and brings the ball to the by-line.From almost on the penalty spot, Banda drifts into position on the near post. The ball comes over at knee height and the ‘ooooooh’ goes up among the crowd as he goes close to connecting. He holds his head in his hands. But quickly realises that the ball has spun back out to McNulty on that right by-line. And dances back into position back again. And then crucially advances a step or two in front of his defender.And the ball comes over and he rises into the night air and glances a header goalwards and the ball arcs over goalkeeper, Freddy Hall, and into the far corner of the net. And the teenager races down the same by-line and performs a knee dive and is soon submerged in a body of blue as Finn Park erupts. And the promotion dream comes alive.And I watch it all again on the Finn Harps twitter feed. And again. And again. Sixty-seven times at the last count.And still counting.PROMOTIONAL NIGHTIt’s forty-eight hours after that night of magic and the teams, both players and management, back-room staff and officials are tucking into a meal in the Clanree Hotel owned by chief sponsors, the McGettigans group.Forty-eight hours but we’re all still dining out on that incredible night when promotion was won in the most dramatic of circumstances.Every player from veteran, Kevin McHugh, and what he calls his “apprentice”, BJ Banda, is there, still on a high like the fans who have gathered to join in the specially organised celebration night.Well, nearly every player. Keith Cowan and Raymond Foy have gone to Liverpool. Always the way of it, these big clubs come in and snatch up your players before you can say two-one to Crystal Palace.Both ‘Pool fans should quickly get over the disappointment of that particular result given what transpired on Friday evening. On so much of a high they probably didn’t even require a plane to fly over though midfielder Foy did miss his personal big moment back home in the Clanree – named Harps Player of the Season for 2015.No such absence for the Young Player of the Season, Tony McNamee, a deserved recipient. The First Division runners-up medals are handed out also and later Damian McNulty hands his to long-time loyal Harps supporter and recently appointed Disability Access Officer at Harps, Frank Larkin.“I’m gobsmacked,” says the Letterkenny man who is present along with his spouse, Pauline. “I can’t get over Damian’s generosity in giving me his medal. It’s one I’ll treasure.”Another Liverpool supporter who quickly forgets the Palace defeat.On the night the players pen countless autographs in countless match programmes – Joe Doherty, are there any left as I arrived too late to get my mitts on one? – and pose for equally endless photographs, patience never wearing thin.And there’s young Banda savouring every single moment and the plaudits coming his way around every corner. And him with school in the morning.And our other goalscorer on Friday night, Mickey Funston, whose proud parents, Eric and Marian, are there wearing smiles as broad as the Bonagee road.And Ciaran Coll who marked his hugely impressive season with one remarkable tackle that stopped a menacing Limerick attack in its tracks.And McHugh who has seen some big nights before and some European adventures in the colours of Derry City but surely nothing as close to his heart as this.Harps officials, Aidan Campbell and chairman Sean Quinn, and manager Horgan address the gathering handing out tributes and presentations to a huge number of individuals who have worked tirelessly during the season.And the night wears on but the memories of a Friday night in November won’t ever wear out. BANANA REPUBLICSo it’s official. R.T.E. doesn’t believe in fairytales. Not if we’re to go by the season’s final edition of ‘Soccer Republic’, it doesn’t.The scene had been set for them on Friday night. A 17-year old Leaving Cert student comes on in a crucial play-off tie and heads home the decisive goal in the closing stages after only a handful of appearances for the senior team.You’d have imagined that would have been the cue for our national station to leap through the hoops and afford it the magical attention it merited after showing edited highlights of the game. “Incredible,” young B.J. Banda summed up his emotions at the end of that epic drama at Finn Park.Er- not so incredible, reacted R.T.E. Because apart from the briefest of comments by studio panellist, Stuart Byrne, on the teenager’s heroics, it may as well have been a pre-season friendly in which the Letterkenny lad netted that dramatic winner.Where was the romance of it all in the ‘Soccer Republic’ coverage?In some ways, this was the story of the season outside of Dundalk’s double but Peter Collins and the R.T.E. panel – and the regulars were all there to mark the end of season show – seemingly failed to get the picture. You can lay a safe bet that ‘Match of the Day’ would have afforded it fairtytale status had a 17-year old snatched a season defining goal.Perhaps, had said 17 year old achieved the feat for Shamrock Rovers, Bohemians, St. Pat’s or U.C.D., we might have had a different story but, no, R.T.E. preferred to dwell on Limerick’s failure to complete the great escape – a feature of all the national coverage in the build-up to the second-leg – and to sharpen the axe where Harps were concerned, Brian Kerr choosing to highlight the necessity for much improved facilities at Finn Park instead of focusing on the attendance and atmosphere at the venue on Friday night and how Ollie Horgan, on the proverbial shoestring budget, had managed to get his team into the Premier League. Oh, and THAT goal and the youngster that scored it which helped put them there.Sure, we know facilities must be greatly enhanced before that step-up but this wasn’t the night for reminding us.What it should have been was an occasion to call to mind that sporting romance is alive and well and living in Ballybofey and Letterkenny and attending the Royal & Prior Comprehensive School in Raphoe on Monday morning a hero.THE GRAPES OF WRATH‘I’ll need two bottles for all the wine that’s coming from my sour grapes,” suggests Limerick boss Martin Russell.After the opening leg of the play-off tie with U.C.D., the students’ manager, Collie O’Donnell, referred to Harps’ time-wasting tactics and the team’s “physicality”.So it probably should have been no surprise to hear Limerick boss, Martin Russell, who had been given the run-down on Harps by his U.C.D. counterpart, deploy the same term to label the Donegal side.And then to go on and compound it after last Friday night by commenting on what he called the “shocking pitch” at Finn Park and the “horrible game” played on it. And voicing the hope that they would have a “strong referee” in charge as Harps had got away with a few challenges at the Market’s Field. Neatly neglecting to mention the one that, even home fans believed, should have resulted in instant dismissal for Shaun Kelly.Harps are no more or less physical than any side in either League of Ireland division but it appears that certain managers, disappointed as they may have been, were left with nothing but a basket of sour grapes to chew on after their respective outings against the Harps.CUP FINAL RESULT: DUNGLOE 1. BALLYBOFEY O. As if it’s not enough enduring the heartache of an F.A.I. Cup Final loss, Ballybofey’s Johnny Dunleavy has a tricky decision to make in the coming days.No, not whether to join his home county club for their return to the Premier League – though I heard a strong rumour that Ollie did have a chat with him at the Aviva on Sunday – but whether or not to attend his good friend, Jason Quigley’s next fight in Las Vegas on Friday week. Normally, not a problem but his Cork City team-mate, Mark O’Sullivan, is getting hitched on the same day and Johnny’s name is on the invitation list.Dunleavy recalled this week playing under-14 Gaelic football and a “bit of soccer” with his fellow Twin Towns sportsman before they went their separate ways though still keeping in touch over the years and distance.Tough one, Johnny, though I’m sure not as hard to take as that Cup Final defeat to Dundalk, particularly after having put up such a valiant performance, not least from the Donegalman himself.Instead the honours and the Cup went to the Lilywhites and their man with Donegal links, Stephen O’Donnell, whose father P.J. hails from Dungloe.This was O’Donnell’s second double in his career – having achieved it previously with Bohemians.A little slice of Cup joy around The Rosses.UP A GUMTREE?Seamus ColemanJust when we thought we could take a break from the drama and tension of the play-off scenario along will come Friday night next to remind us we still have one to go.Our very own Seamus Coleman was, he told the ‘Irish Daily Star ‘ this week, engaging in some friendly exchanges with his Everton team-mate, Muhamed Besic, who plays in midfield for Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Republic’s opponents in the Euro qualifiers showdown.Not banter, he insisted (apparently the Killybegs man doesn’t do banter) but some formal talking about the big games ahead. “In my eyes, I’m quite a serious person and this is too important even for banter,” Coleman declared.What, not even a dig at Besic who misses the first-leg after getting sent off in a qualifier against Andorra earlier in the campaign? His crime? Throwing his chewing gum at Andorran player, Victor Rodriguez.Apparently, U.E.F.A. made that one stick and so Besic misses out. Come on, Seamus, you could have had some fun with him on that score. Chewed him up and spat him out if you’d wanted to.But, let’s face it, we know Martin O’Neill’s men will be up against it even if Bosnia H. are minus their influential midfielder. No John O’Shea or Shane Long for the away leg either and a couple of other injury concerns to add to the Irish worries.Still I’m sure the Republic boss can get a hold of Ollie Horgan and find out just how to get through tricky play-off assignments.PLAY-OFF LEGS Quote of the promotion-relegation play-off from, who else, but one Oliver Horgan, referring to the extra-time period:“We ran out of legs but then seemed to find new ones,” he maintained afterwards.SHIRT SHIFTIn the final few weeks of the season, I ventured into a number of sports shops around the Letterkenny area in search of a Finn Harps jersey but failed to locate one amidst the gallery of Liverpool, United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Celtic shirts.There’ll be plenty of young ones who might want a Harps one for Christmas to emulate B.J. in their back gardens and dream of the real thing.Over to you sports shops. It might just be worth your while and your profits. Though, of course, the blue jerseys are available in the Harps club shop I should hasten to add.AND FINALLY………For those sports fans who have no interest in Finn Harps but would prefer a few words on boxing, gaelic football or snooker then here goes……boxing, gaelic football or snooker.“I’M NO BANDA-WAGON JUMPER” – IT’S WALSHY ON WEDNESDAY! was last modified: November 11th, 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:donegalfinn harpsPaddy Walsh
The biggest market value losers in 2019, including Bale and ex-Liverpool star Maguire has also been linked with United Perisic scored in the World Cup final Bosnich, a former Red Devils goalkeeper, suggests that while Jose Mourinho’s side are in good shape to challenge for the league, signing the Inter Milan winger could hold the key.He told talkSPORT: “I would say they need one more player. I would love to see them go and get Perisic.“They tried very hard last year to get him from Inter Milan. I think he would be an absolutely fantastic addition to the squad.“I still think they do have the players there that can go on and win the title. They’re not as far away as a lot of people are making out.“If they get off to a decent start, I really think that they can go close to winning the title with the current squad that they have. But I would love to see them go and get Perisic.” Tony Cascarino backs Everton to sign two strikers for Carlo Ancelotti 2 Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ Cavani ‘agrees’ to join new club and will complete free transfer next summer LATEST TRANSFER NEWS Kevin De Bruyne ‘loves Man City and wants to keep winning’, reveals father LATEST Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January IN DEMAND REVEALED Man United joined by three other clubs in race for Erling Haaland Mark Bosnich believes Manchester United can win the title this season if they get Ivan Perisic.The Croatian has been a long-term target for United and their interest will have only grown stronger after an incredible World Cup.Perisic scored in both the semi-final and the final as his country ended the tournament runners-up to France. moving on 2 targets Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade LIVING THE DREAM Another World Cup star, Leicester’s Harry Maguire, has been linked with a move to Old Trafford and Bosnich says the club should pounce on any opportunity to sign the Englishman.He added: “Maguire was absolutely fantastic at the World Cup.

Promoted Post Today, Thursday, is the start of the Evolve Menswear Easter Denim Sale. There’s a massive range of jeans reduced from top denim brands like Wrangler, Eto, Crosshatch, Levi’s and G-Star. Plus there are many more promotions in store – Jack & Jones 3 for 2; Pre-End 3 for 2; €100 off Como Suits; 25% off Carhartt. With all these exceptional offers, there’s no excuse for you to not be looking your absolute best this Easter.The denim sale is expected to bring large crowds to Evolve for great bargains.The experts at Evolve Menswear have shared a few tips on choosing jeans during this Easter Denim Sale, particularly the fit which is one of the most important factors when investing in a new pair of jeans.With denim continuing to play a major role within the modern gent’s wardrobe, even the smallest tweak to your current collection can help instantly bring your look up to date. Trying a new wash, fit or even a different brand can add a new dimension to your personal style and ensure your wardrobe doesn’t become stale.The Fit: Low-rise, straight-cut, skinny – these are just some of the styles that you’ll be able to choose from when shopping for a good pair of jeans. The trick is to figure out which cut suits your body type the best. For example if you’re quite tall, you’ll want to stay away from skinny jeans as they will elongate your frame. Similarly, a low-rise pair of jeans on a shorter person just won’t look good. If you’re a bit overwhelmed, opt for a no-nonsense straight cut, which is a look that almost anyone can pull off. Also make sure that when you’re trying on your jeans that the back and crotch areas aren’t too tight. Sit down in the dressing room or in the store and check if the jeans are cutting into your waist or are too tight in certain areas.The fit determines how they feel. How they feel determines how you look. And how you look is what good jeans are all about. Choose the fit accordingly. Slim FitSlim…not skinny! Slim-fit jeans should slightly hug the thighs, knees, and calves while loosening up around your ankles. The presence of fabric against your calf might take getting used to, but how they look — crisp, sharp, clean — makes it worth it.Straight-Leg Fit A little more forgiving than the slim fit, the straight-leg fit is cut more or less the same all the way down, meaning the jeans feel close in the thighs but looser in the knees and calves. To help ease that closeness in the thighs, look for denim with a touch of stretch.Classic FitCut loose throughout, these jeans are for guys who want their thighs to breathe. Only hitch: A loose fit below the knee can result in some flare (or, worst case, a bell-bottom effect). Opt for a length with about an inch-and-a-half break (which will minimize the bunching of any extra cloth), and if that doesn’t do the trick, feel free to roll up the cuffs a bit.Relaxed Fit The roomiest of all the options, blessed with a fuller leg and seat. For them to look their best, the jeans should sit snugly at or just below your natural waist, found right above your hipsThe ColourBlue may be a classic colour for jeans, but in the past few years there has been an explosion of colour when it comes to denim. You can find almost any colour under the rainbow, so there’s no excuse for you not to try on something other than blue. Try out black, grey or even maroon for a very different look. A pair of dark denim is a wardrobe essential, as it can be worn to the office with a smart shirt and shoes or worn casually with a tee and jacket.The WashAnd we are not talking about taking care of how you wash your jeans, but to the wash that’s sometimes applied to jeans or the fabric during the manufacturing process. Different washes produce denim of different shades and textures. Avoid jeans that have been faded out too much as they tend to attract a bit too much attention. Also stay clear from jeans that have excessive fading on the thigh or crotch areas. Choose a pair that’s been lightly treated and one that also suits your complexion a bit better.FASHION – TODAY IS THE DAY DENIM BEGINS TO EVOLVE! was last modified: April 10th, 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:denim saleEvolve

In his daily Breakpoint commentary, Chuck Colson briefly reviews William Dembski’s new book Uncommon Dissent: Intellectuals Who Find Darwinism Unconvincing. Colson was especially taken by the interchange between David Berlinski and the pro-Darwinists. It led him to think, “Suffice it to say, after reading this chapter, and better yet this book, you’ll realize that Darwinism is in for a grilling like none it has experienced before. And it’s about time.” He also mentions this unusual factoid from another chapter:Another new name is Edward Sisson, an attorney who used to direct avant-garde theater. His chapter sheds some much needed light on the Scopes trial. For example, did you know that the very textbook from which Scopes taught advocated eugenics and promoted racism? Indeed, it divided humanity into five races and ranked them in terms of superiority, concluding with “the highest type of all, the Caucasians, represented by the civilized white inhabitants of Europe and America.” This is the book Darwinists insist Scopes had a right to teach?(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

Premiere Pro defaults this to to user/documents/Adobe/Premiere Pro (your Scratch Disks and Preview files follow the project by default). Be aware that if you are working with tapeless media, you have to manually move your files from the card to your scratch disk, as tapeless files are considered imports and not captured media.Personally, I save my media/projects to a folder on my media drive (fastest drive). I put my Premiere Auto Saves & Previews/Renders on a separate drive and back up the projects to Dropbox daily. Whatever strategy you choose, please back up your project! If you forget or need to change your scratch after launching the project, go to Project>Project Settings>Scratch Disk to make modifications.Post Haste is a free software application that will help you with this file organization. It creates a folder structure for you, and you can modify the defaults and create your own templates.An additional resource is this handy guide for disk setups on the Adobe forums. 2. Workspace ShortcutsCreating workspace shortcuts will speed up your editing work. My rule of thumb is to make a shortcut for anything you use on a daily basis.Here’s a general guide to customizing shortcuts in Adobe Premiere Pro that’s worth a look. A few of the workspace shortcuts I use religiously:Control + U – Reset my current layout when it gets disorganized and messyCommand + 1 – Audio WorkspaceCommand + 2 – Color Correction WorkspaceCommand + 3 – Editing Workspace3. Working with Clips in a SequenceBy default when you drag a clip into a Sequence from the Source Window you perform an Overwrite Edit. If you’d like to perform an Insert Edit instead (pushes other clips down the timeline) hold Command (MAC) or Control (PC) when you drag the clip to the sequence.Often you will want to rearrange the order of clips in a Sequence. Select the clip, drag the clip to a new location, then hold Command/Control + Option/Alt before you let go of the mouse (make sure snapping is turned on). This is called a Swap Edit.4. Maximize Window ShortcutEnlarge the window you’re working in by placing your cursor over the window you want to maximize and press tilde (below the escape key). Press it again and it reverts back.I use this constantly.5. Render from “In and Out”The work area defines what clips and effects are rendered. I prefer to use “in and out” instead, as this is a standard editing convention. This setting is in the Sequence Menu pulldown. When you change this, it also changes the Sequence Menu settings to “in & out” instead of work area.Here’s two Premiere Pro render shortcuts that are worth memorizing and using!Render In/Outs – Command + RRender Effects – Option + R6. Show Audio Time UnitsThis lets you work with audio in smaller increments – particularly helpful when removing a pop or other audio issue. In the Timeline Menu pull down select “Show Audio Time Units”.You can read more on this here.7. Clip Usage in SequencesThere’s a quick way to find out where and how many times a video clip has been used in a Premiere Pro sequence. If you select a clip in the project window, at the top of window to the right of the thumbnail viewer, you will see details about the clip, including how many times it has been used in a sequence. If you click on the “clip usage” pulldown, select the instance of the clip you want to see and it will open that sequence if it is in multiple sequences. This is a handy way to find clips.8. Change Track HeightIn FCP 7 you could change the track height in the Timeline of video & audio tracks with the shortcut Shift +T or by clicking the Toggle Timeline icon. In Premiere Pro you can assign a shortcut to increase/decrease the video/audio track height (unfortunately however it’s not a toggle).You can use the FCP shortcut of Shift +T, but it conflicts with the default “Reveal Nested Sequence”. Instead, I use Cmd + H to increase track height and Option + Command + H to decrease track height. Note: The tracks have to be expanded for this to work successfully.9. Sync LockUncheck Sync Lock when you want a Premiere Pro track to stay in place. A common use for this is when you don’t want your music track to get pushed down when you perform an Insert Edit. See the highlighted sync lock button below.By default Insert Edit will push all tracks down unless Sync Unlock is off or the track is locked.10. Creating MarkersTo create a marker in a Premiere Pro sequence, use the shortcut “M”. You can see your markers in the markers Panel, change their length and add comments (very useful for adding editing or producers notes).To create a marker on a clip, load the clip into the Source Window & press “M”. The Marker Panel with show sequence markers if the Sequence is selected, or clip markers if the Source is selected.Selecting the Marker in the Marker Panel will take you to the marker in the clip or sequence – a big Premiere Pro timesaver!BONUS TIP: Using Hover ScrubPremiere Pro CS 6 defaults to Icon view, instead of list view like previous versions. Put your cursor over an icon, and the clip will play backwards or forwards as you drag your mouse. If you click on the clip you you get a yellow bar (shows the “in & out” points) and a playhead.You can drag the playhead, or use the J, K or L shortcuts to play the clip. You can set in & out with I & O.The filmstrip icon indicates clip usage in the project and the waveform icon indicates the clip has linked audio.Got a Premiere Pro tip to share?Share it in the comments below!
