first_imgThe jobs of a number of workers in Elvery’s Sports Stores in Letterkenny and Donegal Town hang in the balance after the appointment of an examiner.Elvery’s Sport Shop in LetterkennyThe Sinn Féin EU candidate for the Midlands Northwest constituency, Matt Carthy, has voiced his support for workers.Carthy said Elverys Sports is Ireland’s oldest sports retailer, is fully Irish-owned and employs 700 people across 23 counties. “There are two branches in County Donegal – in Letterkenny and in Donegal town and every effort must be made to save the jobs in these branches.“Workers in Elverys are unsurprisingly concerned for their future despite communications from the examiner that jobs will be “protected at all costs”.“Saving all 700 of these jobs must be of the utmost priority in any deal.“NAMA took the decision to seek the appointment of the examiner. While NAMA’s overriding commercial objective is to generate the best achievable financial return for the taxpayer, its work must also contribute to employment and economic recovery and to the achievement of broader social and economic policy objectives. “The saving of 700 jobs and the creation of a healthy Irish business, sustainable into the future, must be central to the achievement of these goals.“I support the Elverys workers in their fight to hold on to their jobs and livelihoods.” SUPPORT FOR SPORTS SHOP WORKERS AS ELVERYS GOES INTO EXAMINERSHIP was last modified: March 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:donegalElverys Sport Shopexaminershiplast_img read more

The Audio Ramp-Up: The Best Transition You Should Be Using

Enter the audio ramp-up transition.This is by far one of my favorite transition processes, and it has nothing to do with the visuals. It’s super powerful, and the best part is that hardly anyone uses it in short-form content.So here’s one way to improve your transitions without using snappy video plugins — the audio ramp-up. How to Use the Audio Ramp-Up TransitionFirst, find the clip you want to transition from. Then layer either a sound effect, foley element, or song below it.Next, set your audio level to how you want it throughout your clip — not too loud, not too quiet. Make sure that audio track ends right at the tail of your transitioning clip.Finally (the most critical part) ramp up the volume in your selected audio track so it becomes more prominent than any ambient sound. Do this by selecting the Pen Tool and creating a keyframe marker about six seconds before the end of your shot. Create a second keyframe marker at the end of your audio track — only this time, raise it so that it becomes very noticeable. You don’t want it to be overpowering, but you do want it to be clear in the final cut.When your audience watches playback, this effect will create a sort of jarring cut, lending a unique feeling to both scenes.And if you’d like to try a slightly different approach, check this tutorial on transitioning with audio swells.last_img read more

I don’t want to think about things that are out of my control. I’ve had no conversations with Eddie but every player has international aspirations.”The 27-year-old is clearly resilient, having featured in every league game this season, and has been pleasantly surprised by life in the Premiership compared with the slower-paced Top 14. “The speed of the game and the conditioning are quite different to what I experienced in France. It’s more similar to back home in South Africa. There are also a fantastic group of people here. We care about each other and I think that shows.” Sign up to the Breakdown for the latest rugby union news Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Share on LinkedIn Support The Guardian For the Newcastle game Paolo Odogwu and Luke James start at left wing and inside-centre respectively, with the tighthead prop WillGriff John returning to the front row and Byron McGuigan named at full-back. The 18-year-old Cameron Redpath, the English-qualified son of the former Scotland international Bryan, is poised to make his Premiership debut off the bench.Newcastle’s lineup features Gary Graham, who is back after injuring his neck at England training in early February, with Joel Hodgson, the league’s most accurate goalkicker this season, chosen ahead of Toby Flood at fly-half. “For us it’s a must-win game in terms of keeping our top-four hopes alive,” said Dean Richards, the Falcons’ director of rugby. “If we don’t win we can almost kiss the semi-finals goodbye.” Not since Sale won their only Premiership title 12 years ago have English rugby’s northern lights shone so brightly. With three rounds left both the Sharks and Newcastle are strong contenders for Europe’s Champions Cup qualification with a top-four spot hinging on the outcome of Friday ’s shoot-out at Kingston Park.

Wasps and Leicester will not be easily denied play-off places but fifth-placed Newcastle, with two of their last three games at home plus a trip to face the Tigers, can still shape their own destiny.Sale will have to dig even deeper, with a long hike to Exeter and a final home fixture against Leicester rounding off a tricky run-in, but their confidence has been given a timely lift by last week’s dramatic win over Wasps. Trailing 17-0 in the first half they came back to win 28-27 courtesy of Marland Yarde’s last-second try.According to their captain, Jono Ross, the trick now is to reproduce their dominant home form on the road. This season they have won away against only the bottom three teams in the league and will need to find an extra gear to outwit the Falcons and the Chiefs. “We think we’re a good side but we haven’t been as good as we’ve wanted to away from home,” Ross said. “We need to replicate the performances we’ve put in at the AJ Bell. Hopefully that will be enough.”A big finish would also improve Ross’s chances of a place on England’s tour to his native South Africa. The Johannesburg-born back-row forward is qualified for England via a grandmother from Essex and Sale’s director of rugby, Steve Diamond, said Eddie Jones and England’s forwards coach, Steve Borthwick, have been making inquiries.
