GAA President Liam O’Neill added his sympathies and said: “Dermot’s passing is an enormous loss to the GAA, his county Offaly and his club Coolderry.He held a very special place in the hearts of his local community and was involved from the grassroots up.O’Neill praised Mr Hogan’s “outstanding” commitment to his club and said: “He was a true GAA man and I know the sense of shock and loss throughout the local community has been widespread.”Mr Hogan is survived by his wife Marie and his daughters Lisa, Rachel and Ciara as well as his parents Kieran and Margaret and brothers Kevin and Eugene.– First published 11.46 Source: Shane Dooley/Twitter Updated 17.55OFFALY GAA IS in mourning following the sudden death of U21 hurling manager Dermot Hogan.The 45-year-old died yesterday following a tragic accident while working at his home.County chairman Padraig Boland led the tributes to the Coolderry man who was a stalwart of hurling in Offaly.He took charge of the U21s for the first time this year following club success and a stint as a selector with the county minors last season.“Dermot’s positivity towards Offaly hurling was infectious,” Boland said.“While Dermot’s loss to Coolderry and Offaly hurling will be huge, it pales into insignificance when compared to the loss that will be felt by his wife Marie and family and our thoughts and prayers are with them at this extremely sad time.” Deepest sympathies to the family of Dermot Hogan. Very nice man and very passionate about hurling. RIP.— Shane Dooley (@shanedoole) July 25, 2014

It was the next logical step.“We threw the dice a little a few years ago,” he adds, referencing the split from Newstalk where they presented Off the Ball.The five-strong team spent months researching models that could work commercially for the company but also fit with their cult-like listenership.According to Horgan, consumers are now more likely than ever to “pay for quality” but they were anxious to come up with a “fair price that wouldn’t put people off but was still competitive”.Tight-lipped on how many of their over 200,000-plus followers they expect to get across the line, Horgan would not be drawn on their hopes or expectations.It’s a shot in the dark for us. We feel it’s the right thing at the right time but some people, naturally, won’t come along and that’s completely cool.

Source: Alex Sheridan“NEXT MONDAY 13 February, we are launching our brand new Second Captains World Service,” Eoin McDevitt announced on Monday’s installment of the popular podcast.McDevitt, along with his colleagues Ken Early, Simon Hick, Mark Horgan and Ciarán Murphy, was delivering on a previous promise of big news.“This will be a completely member-led, online station that gives you the chance to listen to all your favourite SC podcasts every day of the week,” he explained further.Listeners of Second Captains will be charged €5 per month for the imminent daily installments, which will include guest presenters (former footballer and regular contributor Richie Sadlier is already confirmed), non-sports shows (Ken Early will be launching a political iteration) and immediate reaction to breaking news.Those who don’t join will now only have access to Monday’s two shows.Brave and ballsy were the two words being thrown around this week after the big reveal.But that’s not exactly ringing true for the gang.“We’re giddy with it, it’s unbelievably exciting,” director and producer Mark Horgan tells TheJournal.ie. To distribute its daily output, Second Captains will be using Patreon – a platform which allows “creators” to earn “sustainable income, directly from fans”. In return, it takes five percent of successfully processed payments.“It has been proven to be successful for [shows with] dedicated followings,” continues Horgan, noting they took inspiration from US political podcast Chapo Trap House. Charging $5 per month, it now has more than 9,000 subscribers.Fans of Second Captains like being in on the joke. They know what the deal is with the ‘You’re amazing’ sign-off, delight in Planet Earth references and can tell their Rashers Geraghty from their Black Puddin’ O’Toole.So will people tune in to keep up with the story? The Coronation Street of podcasts?Horgan insists there’ll be no cliffhangers or ‘tricks’ to get people in as signed-up members.“The shows will be the same,” he says.It’ll be what people are used to. We’ll be putting out really good shows as often as we can.There will be benefits for paying customers though, including an induction pack (complete with an Early original doodle), advance notice of tickets for live shows, discounts on annuals and what will likely become much-coveted badges. Source: Alex SheridanThere are risks with paywalls – a quick google of ‘how to make money from a podcast?’ will highlight the dilemma of trying to get people to fork out cash for something they’re used to getting for free.The company, however, has other revenue streams from sponsored live shows (a December event sold out within hours) and work with RTÉ Radio One during the summer months. With a mobile studio, it also has the ability to be flexible and vary its own production company model.Making the announcement, McDevitt emphasised the importance of becoming an independent broadcaster, saying they are ready to “try a different way of doing things”.Breaking from a four-year relationship with the Irish Times, Horgan says Second Captains – as a production company – now has to stand on its own, a prospect he is relishing.“We’ve had a really good relationship with the Times. They’ve been behind us since we joined them. [The five of us] have been working together since 2004… [we’re] doing this for a long time. We’ve been able to build up the elements of Second Captains.“We’ve built the infrastructure, we have the studio. There comes a time when you have to be ambitious for yourself – without needing a separate media company or a wealthy backer. We don’t need the support of something else now.”Except their dedicated listeners. And they’re willing to bet on them.More: Second Captains announce daily podcasts with introduction of new world serviceRead: Second Captains’ Murph and Ken on their new book, podcasting and the UFC phenomenon Feb 11th 2017, 7:00 AM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article
The Columbian is making it easy for you to help take care of some neighbors in need this holiday season.Our People In Need program is kicking off its 32nd year of collecting donations Tuesday — with an envelope inserted into this newspaper.Give whatever you can and mail it back in. The Columbian forwards your donations straight to the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington and its People In Need family fund, which was started by Columbian publisher Don Campbell in 1979.About a quarter of that fund goes to the Salvation Army of Clark County and its Adopt-A-Family program. The local branch of the nationwide Christian charity provides assistance of all sorts to people in need — from food boxes to emergency rent and utility assistance, to case management for people seeking stability and employment. The Salvation Army of Clark County recently reported a $250,000 budget shortfall, resulting in layoffs of four out of its 16 staff members. Now down to 12 staffers, the Salvation Army has also cut back on programs and is considering more cuts in the future.You can read the stories of local families in need, go online and choose one to “adopt” with specific donations and gifts. (For example, there’s a single mother of three children with reduced work hours and a fear there’ll be no Christmas this year. Her 5-year-old wishes for a camera; her 8-year-old loves Legos; the 11-year-old girl just wants clothing; and Mom would love some boots and “a cord of wood if possible.”) Or, you can make a general donation to our People In Need fund via the envelope provided. Or, you can drop off donations of needed goods — clothing, toys, gifts, food — at the Salvation Army, 1500 N.E. 112th Avenue.The Campbell family and current Columbian Publisher Scott Campbell also choose other worthy nonprofit organizations to accept the rest of the donations throughout the year.Visit http://columbian.com/adoptafamily to learn more. Or call The Salvation Army directly at 360-448-2880.
Firefighters continue to mitigate hotspots within the fire perimeter. Information gathered by drones provides coordinates allowing firefighters to go directly to hotspots. Progress towards expanding the width of the fireline continues each day. Excavators will be used to remove trees threatening the Skilak Lake Loop Road. Fire Update: Swan Lake Fire behavior was minimal on Sunday. The Northern Rockies Team 4, arrived at the Swan Lake Fire Incident Command Post. They received an in-briefing from the Great Basin Team 1, and will work with them all day Monday. The Northern Rockies Team 4 will take command on Tuesday, September 10. The Fire acres remain at 163,686, containment is now at 34% and 562 personnel are still assigned to the fire.

Firefighters completed a successful test of the network of pumps, hoses and sprinklers for structure fire protection in Cooper Landing. Yesterday, firefighters exercised several different fire scenarios. Firefighters were challenged to consider what their actions would be if a building caught fire or if they lost water pressure.While this exercise prepared firefighters for Cooper Landing, it also provided valuable realism that is rarely experienced on the training ground. At this stage in the fire, it is unlikely that the “plumbing” will be needed in Cooper Landing. Closures:The area closures for public lands surrounding and including the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and Chugach National Forest remain in place to provide needed public and firefighter safety. Information on these closures is available at https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/6387/. The Upper Kenai River remains open between Cooper and Sportsman’s Landing from 6:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Firefighters continue to patrol and mop up fire control lines near west flank of fire near Sterling, east flank of fire by Fuller Lake and Resurrection Trail, Sterling Highway and Skilak Lake. Firefighters in the southeast area of the fire removed some tree canopy over hot spots to allow rain to soak in.Firefighters continue to work near the Sterling Highway.

Kolkata Police with a cheeky campaign.Kolkata Police TwitterRavichandran Ashwin has been a major talking point in the world of cricket recently because of his ‘Mankading’ dismissal of Jos Buttler and leveraging this, Kolkata Police has launched a campaign asking people to stay within their designated lines.The controversial incident happened on March 25 during the fourth game of the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League when Kings XI Punjab was playing Rajasthan Royals. Punjab had posted 184-4 batting first and in pursuit of the tall target, the Royals were cruising at 108-1 in 12.5 overs. This is when KXIP skipper noticed Royals wicketkeeper had drifted out of the crease at the non-strikers’ end. Seeing this, he proceeded to dislodge the bails in front of the umpire instead of bowling his delivery.Buttler looked bemused but Ashwin did not withdraw his appeal and the third umpire eventually gave him out. The Englishman was livid at the entire incident and walked off letting out a few expletives. The incident divided the cricketing world as one school of thought said that by the laws of the game, Ashwin was well within his right to ‘Mankad’ Buttler. But the opposing opinion stated that the KXIP skipper did not adhere to the unsaid code which is often referred to as the ‘spirit of the game’. Jos Buttler mankaded by AshwinNever too far away from pop culture, the Kolkata Police tweeted a collage of two pictures from their official Twitter account and captioned it, “Crease ey hok ba rastay, aage porle postay” which roughly translates to “Be it on the road or on the crease, if you cross the line, you will regret the outcome” in English. Of course, the Bengali version was scripted in a rhyming couplet.pic.twitter.com/mlcI1qsXeV— Kolkata Police (@KolkataPolice) March 26, 2019″No really argument to that (Mankading incident) and it’s pretty instinctive. I actually didn’t load and he left the crease. That’s always been my take on it because it’s my half of the crease. I was not even at the crease, he wasn’t even looking at me and he just left the place,” Ashwin said in the post-match prize distribution ceremony.The Marylebone Cricket Club, custodian of the laws of cricket defended Ashwin. “To clarify, it has never been in the Laws that a warning should be given to the non-striker and nor is it against the Spirit of Cricket to run out a non-striker who is seeking to gain an advantage by leaving his/her ground early,” read a statement from the MCC.Meanwhile, this is what the experts had to say about the incident on Twitter.Dean Jones: Don’t blame Ashwin here. As it’s allowed in the Laws of the game.. how is it disrespectful or against the spirit of the game if it’s allowed within the Laws of game? Blame the administrators for making the Law.Eoin Morgan: I can’t believe what I’m seeing!! Terrible example to set for young kids coming through. In time I think Ashwin will regret that.Michael Vaughan: If Jos Buttler had been warned well that’s fine … if he hasn’t and it’s the first time I think Ashwin is completely out of order … watch how often this happens from now on !!!!!!!Mohammad Kaif: It’s within the laws of the game but Jos Butler should have been warned by Ashwin before that. Very Surprised ! Remember Ashwin doing the same in an international game where Sehwag withdrew the appeal.RP Singh: Ashwin was completely within his rights to dismiss butler there. Don’t understand how Spirit of Cricket can be questioned. How many times have u seen a batsman wait for Umpires decision when he knew he was out?
Brayden Simpson is one of the stars of ‘Fences.’On October 21, the Pulitzer Prize winning August Wilson drama “Fences” comes to the Everyman Theatre in Baltimore. The play, set in 1950’s Pittsburg, tells the story of a working-class black man named Troy Maxson and his family. “Fences” is part of Wilson’s 10-play Pittsburgh Cycle – a series of plays dedicated to portraying varying aspects of the black experience.The Everyman production is directed by Clinton Turner Davis, who worked backstage at the original Broadway production of “Fences,” which featured James Earl Jones.The AFRO sat down with Alan Bomar Jones, who plays Troy, and Brayden Simpson, who plays Troy’s youngest son Cory.In the play, Troy is a strong man who makes hard choices. Those choices have painful consequences for those closest to him – especially Cory. Because of that, Jones and Simpson must capture the often contentious relationship between father and son. The duo said that the chemistry necessary to bring that relationship to life was there almost from the beginning.“When I first met him, the first thing that struck me about him was that he was very controlled as an individual,” Jones said. “When I’m in the mode of what I feel on stage, I automatically raise my voice and start projecting. So I did that, and he gave it back. Even though we were reading, we were constantly making eye contact and I just started feel like ‘man, if I get this, I hope he’s my son.’ It was like, everything I did, he gave back.”“When we read, there was a very strong, immediate connection,” Simpson said. “Those two energies coming together made that magic.”Jones said this was his third time stepping into Troy’s shoes, although the last time he did it was over 15 years ago. He said the added time means he can bring even more life experience to the role.“I would say that I have more experience to add to Troy today. I’m not a father but I father a lot of young actors and people that I run across. I have more grit and more gut to add to him [than I did] 17 years ago when I was in my 30s.”And does he think that Troy, who eventually ruins his marriage to his faithful and goodhearted wife Rose, is a bad person?“Troy is a good guy in his own mind,” Jones said. “He is from a generation of ‘this is the way a household is kept.’ So in his mind, he thinks and he feels that he is good so therefore he really is a good person.”Simpson, a Maryland native who graduated from the Baltimore School of the Arts, said he has wanted to play Cory since he was 14 years old. He said that his character struggles to become his own man – in spite of his father and because of him.“It’s that story that we know of a young boy trying to become his own over an overbearing father dominating his life. It’s something that we’ve seen in tropes over and over and over. I don’t think Cory is Troy but I think that Cory has more Troy in him then he recognizes.”Everyman has a special arrangement with six Baltimore City high schools where they will bus students over to see five different shows, at no cost to city schools. After the shows, actors go to the schools and discuss the plays with the students. Simpson said he is most excited about that.“We don’t know how many kids we’re going to inspire to do anything – become a literary agent, become an actor…Even if you’re going to be a lawyer, you need to have an artistic foundation. That’s what this play does. This play touches on not just American culture, but African American culture. You watch your history unfold.”Fences runs until Nov. 22 at the Everyman Theatre, 315 W Fayette St, Baltimore, Maryland 21201.
Stay on target Here’s a Closer Look at the Nike Kyrie 5 SpongeBob PackNike Reveals Commemorative Kyrie 5 ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ Sneakers They might as well shut down E3 2019 because THQ Nordic just made the biggest video game announcement you could possibly imagine. And they didn’t even have to go on 8chan to do it. Imagine our surprise this morning when the publisher dropped the absolute bomb that the one and only SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom is coming back. No, you aren’t dreaming.Check out this first teaser for SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated!Okay, so why is the return of this random licensed cartoon kids game from 2003 being treated like a bigger deal than the Final Fantasy VII remake? As usual, you can blame the internet. The original Battle for Bikini Bottom seems like a fine enough game of its kind, a mascot 3D platformer with a Donkey Kong 64-esque character switching mechanic you don’t really see a lot these days. But it’s definitely not something worth remembering.AdChoices广告And yet for some inexplicable reason the internet latched onto this game as an ironic cult classic to keep championing. There’s a vibrant speedrunning community surrounding this game. People hired weird old men on YouTube to make new trailers for this game. Combine all that with developer Heavy Iron Studios expressing interest in a remake (along with THQ Nordic surely trying to foster the good relationship with Nickelodeon its namesake once had) and now we can look forward to this remaster. It’s the video game equivalent of those SpongeBob meme toys.So look forward to SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom coming in 2020 to all consoles and PC. Along with upgraded visuals we can also expect a new multiplayer mode. And if that’s not enough, there’s a new SpongeBob prequel cartoon coming, too. Following next summer’s film It’s a Wonderful Sponge, the prequel Kamp Koral will follow a 10-year-old SpongeBob at summer camp. And we thought the SpongeBob broadway musical was a lot.
Citation: Removing ‘black sheep’ could make Internet run more efficiently (2012, February 28) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-02-black-sheep-internet-efficiently.html As a consequence, removing these black sheep links significantly increased the network’s transmission capacity. From a practical perspective, removing these few links is easier than redesigning the entire network or developing a complex routing strategy. However, the researchers noted that there is a limit to removing links, where removing too many will lower the overall efficiency.In their most recent study, the researchers show that, in order for this method to work effectively, the network structure must be heterogeneous in terms of node betweenness values. In other words, the method works best for networks that have nodes with a greater diversity of betweenness values. In this way, networks with large heterogeneity, which can be measured by the well-known Gini coefficient, have more significant effects.“Our recent paper doesn’t further improve network capacity of the method, but points out that heterogeneity of network structure is a necessary condition for the effect’s existence, highlights the rationality based on betweenness, and discusses the effect’s applications in engineering practice,” Zhang said. “It also shows that the greater the heterogeneity of a network is, the better the effect is. In essence, our method can reduce the heterogeneity, hence load balance, and then capacity is enhanced.”Because the black sheep links often use the highest bandwidths, removing them provides another advantage: it saves energy and reduces the cost of bandwidth, construction and maintenance. The researchers hope that the combination of increased transmission capacity and reduced cost will motivate the wide application of this method to a variety of communication and transportation networks.“Edge removal is only an abstract concept, it may have different forms in different contexts,” Zhang said. “Let me take urban transportation networks as an example: blocking the entrance ramp can relieve congestion and help traffic move more smoothly during rush hour. Here, blocking the entrance ramp logically means edge removal. For the Internet, building overlay routing is an important way to improve network reliability. This can be achieved by setting up relay nodes to obtain path diversity and enhance forwarding efficiency. A relay node needs to close some key links during heavy load. Closing links can be easily implemented and automatically finished by software. In the second instance, closing links mean edge removal. In a word, edge removal has many variants in practice.” © 2011 PhysOrg.com Greedy Routing Enables Network Navigation Without a ‘Map’ The researchers, Guo-Qing Zhang, Di Wang, and Guo-Jie Li, from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, published the strategy in 2007. In their most recent paper, published in Scientia Sinica Informationis, they have continued to build on this idea by determining the necessary conditions for the effect’s existence.“Our main findings reveal the effect of enhancing network capacity of edge-removal in networks and the prerequisite of the effect,” Zhang told PhysOrg.com. “However, the results of capacity expansion depend on specific networks. For the popular BA model network, this method increases network capacity more than 10 times.”The Internet is a combination of many interconnected networks, each of which consists of nodes (e.g., computers and routers) and links (e.g., cables and optical fibers). Structurally, this framework is similar to all networks in areas as diverse as biology, sociology, and statistics. In the case of the Internet, data is stored as bits, and thousands of bits are combined in packets that are directed by routers to their destinations. Routers use certain strategies to get packets to their destinations as quickly as possible, sending them along links from one node to another in a split second.The many different strategies proposed so far for increasing the Internet’s transmission efficiency fall under two categories: developing better routing strategies and optimizing the network itself. The researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences show that modifying the network does not necessarily require a complicated redesign; instead, deleting just a few well-chosen links is relatively easy and effective.The key is choosing which links to remove. To do this, the researchers analyzed a network model that simulates packet traffic. In the model, routers use a shortest path routing strategy to direct packets to their destinations. Then the researchers analyzed each node to see how often it lies along the shortest path between two other nodes. For instance, if the shortest path between nodes A and B passes through node C, then C would be between A and B, increasing C’s value of a quantity called “betweenness.” Because nodes with large betweenness values are part of a greater number of shortest paths than peripheral nodes, they become congested more easily. To decrease this congestion, the researchers removed a fraction of the links connecting two nodes with some of the highest betweenness values. As a result, packets had to detour around these hub nodes, taking a slightly longer path but easing congestion in the most congestion-prone areas.

DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevE.76.017101 (PhysOrg.com) — Whether dealing with Internet traffic or vehicle traffic, congestion can slow everything down. One team of researchers working on improving network transmission efficiency has developed a strategy that identifies certain links or edges that can be removed to decrease the overall congestion. Somewhat counterintuitively, these links – which the researchers call “black sheep” – are those that connect the busiest hubs. In a sense, the strategy is similar to closing some of the busiest roads during rush hour, and finding that vehicles reach their destinations faster than before.
Set up a local account if you want a custom user folder name by Martin Brinkmann on April 22, 2019 in Windows – 13 commentsWindows administrators and users who set up new accounts on devices running the Windows 10 operating system have two main choices when it comes to that: they may set up a user account using a Microsoft Account, or set up a local account.Microsoft pushes Microsoft Account user accounts and prioritizes them during account creation. Both account types differ significantly.Microsoft Accounts may be used across devices, enable syncing of date such as passwords or themes, resetting of the password, and may be used for other Microsoft services. Microsoft Accounts support two-step verification, security keys, and you may link Windows 10 licenses to accounts.Downside for some is that Microsoft Accounts provide Microsoft with additional data; that is no the case for local account. Microsoft Accounts may also be attacked online even if the PC is not online at the time.Windows User Folder name depends on Account typeThe choice between a Microsoft Account and a local account affects the name of the user folder as well. Microsoft Account user folders are limited to five characters; Windows 10 picks the first five characters of the Microsoft Account email address and makes it the name of the user folder.If you asked yourself in the past why your user folder appeared cut off, that is the likely explanation. The user folder on a Windows 10 Fast Ring test system has the name marti, and I always asked myself why it had that name and not the correct name martin which another of my PCs uses.The difference was that I used a Microsoft Account on the Insider Build PC, and a local account on the other PC.In other words: if you want a custom name for the user folder, you need to create a local account on the device (first) to do so; this makes no different for users who use a five character email address but anyone else may prefer a properly named user folder.If you select local account, you are free to pick the name for the account; that name is automatically the name of the user folder on the device for that user.You can switch to a Microsoft Account after the local user account creation if you prefer to use one; doing so won’t change the name of the user folder. (thanks Deskmodder)Now You: local account or Microsoft Account, which do you prefer?SummaryArticle NameSet up a local account if you want a custom user folder nameDescriptionThe name of the user folder on Windows 10 devices is limited to five characters if you select a Microsoft Account during setup.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement

Share Canadians stranded in Cuba after plane crash returning home By: The Canadian PressSource: The Associated Press Tuesday, May 22, 2018 MONTREAL — Hundreds of Canadians who were stuck in Cuba since a plane crash last week are returning home. Montreal-based Caribe Sol said Monday that Cubana Airlines was resuming operations after the passenger jet crash on Friday killed 111 people. The agency said on its Facebook page that 346 tourists who had booked through Caribe Sol would be flown back to Canada Monday and Tuesday. It said some other passengers had already returned home on other airlines. Cuba’s largest airline grounded all its flights on Friday after a Boeing 737 crashed soon after takeoff and landed in a fireball on the outskirts of Havana.
