first_imgHOLDERS Donegal fell to defeat to Sligo in their opening game in the North-West Under-21 Cup at O’Donnell Park today.Donegal 2-7 Sligo 2-13Declan Bonner’s team, minus a number of regulars, were gunned down by Sligo, who had goals from Paul Kilcone and Kyle Cawley, whose late three-pointer put a gloss on the scoreline. Naomh Colmcille’s Daniel Clarke, playing competitively in the Donegal shirt for the first time, netted a 24th minute goal to bring Donegal back on level terms after Sligo began brightly.Kilcoyne’s goal on 12 minutes had fired Sligo in front and the Yeats men were 1-3 to 0-1 ahead midway through the half.Gavin McBride’s point in the first minute had started the Donegal ball rolling, but it ground to a halt until Lorcan Connor drilled over on 20 minutes.Clarke fired in from close range after Connor laid on a pass across goal. Connor himself struck gold in the 28th minute and Donegal led by two, 2-4 to 1-5, at the break.Paddy O’Connor struck four first-half frees and, after Donegal squandered a series of chances, O’Connor nailed another two beauties to bring Sligo onto an even keel.Another by O’Connor, in the 44th minute, put Sligo in front with a raft of changes on the Donegal side having been made at that stage – including the withdrawal of the injured Stephen McBrearty, who’d just been put on at half-time.Sub Darragh Black added a brace of points, one of either foot, kept Donegal in check, but the on-song O’Connor was almost single-handedly ticking the scoreboard for the visitors.O’Connor ended with nine points aside his name and Cawley’s late goal sealed the deal.Donegal: Danny Rodgers; Danny Monagle, Gary McFadden, Daniel Gallagher; Niall Friel (0-1), Tony McClenaghan, Daire Ó Baoill; Michael Lynch, Daniel Clarke (1-0); Christian Bonner, Conor Doherty (0-1), Ciaran Diver; Adam Neely, Gavin McBride (0-1), Lorcan Connor (1-1).

first_imgShameless Donegal Garda killer Martin McDermott has demanded an investigation into how it was revealed he will be getting out of prison early.Garda killer Martin McDermott is to get early release from jail.The Raphoe criminal, whose car killed Garda Gary McLoughlin in Burt in 2009, is due to get out of prison 21 months early for “good behaviour.”This is despite the fact that McDermott escaped from prison and went on the run before being recaptured in Derry. The Star newspaper revealed that the 27 year old is due for release next June.But now brazen McDermott has demanded the Irish Prison Service find out who leaked the information that he was getting out early.It has also been revealed that McDermott was only given an extra 14 days in jail for escaping from prison during which he also assaulted a PSNI officer in Derry.McDermott was jailed for seven years in July 2011 and his release next June means that he will have served just three-quarters of his sentence.  DONEGAL GARDA KILLER DEMANDS PRISON SERVICE INVESTIGATION INTO EARLY RELEASE CLAIMS was last modified: October 13th, 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:donegalearly releaseGarda killerMartin McDermottRaphoelast_img read more

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting curt hopkins Related Posts Tags:#TWiOT#web center_img Before covering the events that have taken place this week in Egypt, I think it’s important to examine those stories that are in danger of being lost to the public’s consciousness because of the dramatic nature of what’s happening in Tahrir Square. Also, in one case, it’s instructive to talk about one case which came about as a direct result of Egypt. In fact, let’s start there, with Syria. Syria lifts Internet bans. Syria is an enthusiastic banner of social media tools. Facebook and YouTube have been banned in that authoritarian country for four years. But now, that ban has been lifted. This is a result of the Tunisian and Egyptian uprisings. Like those countries, Syria has labored under a prolonged tinhorn tyranny; in this case, it has endured two generations of Assad-family rule. Perhaps it’s hoped this relaxation will act as a pressure release. Perhaps it is also hoped that trouble-makers in the Syrian regime will be more easily identified if they are lured out in the virtual open. “It seems like a policy to curry favor with the youth,” Syrian dissident Ammar Abdulhamid told us. The relaxation was accompanied by the announcement of a food subsidy for the needy. Thailand prosecutes another blogger under lèse majesté. The trail for the prosecution of Chiranuch Premchaiporn, the webmaster of the Prachatai website, is ongoing. The charge of lèse majesté is a popular one in Thailand when the government finds anyone it wishes to muzzle. The charge is one of bad mouthing the king and queen, who are very popular in Thailand. It is the Thai equivalent of “insulting the leader” or “insulting religion.” Burma sentences imprisoned blogger to more time. Kaung Myat Hlaing, known by the blogging name of Nat Soe, has been sentenced to an additional ten year sentence on top of the two years he’s already serving. In a secret “trial,” Hlaing was convicted of being part of a poster campaign in support of dissident Aung San Suu Kyi and others. He was deprived of food and water for ten days until he “confessed” to being part of the postering group. China bans “Egypt” as search term. Most of the countries terrified by the people who are rising up in Tunisia and Egypt are Arab ones, like Saudi Arabia. But China is nothing if not forward thinking and accounts of people forcing their governments to account are definitely outre in the Middle Kingdom. So “Egypt” has joined “Tiananmen” and “falun gong” as banned terms on the Chinese Internet. Malaysia announces Internet censorship regime. The Malaysian government is drawing up “guidelines” (read: laws) for online behavior (read: speech). The fact that these rules are in conjunction with the country’s Sedition Act tells you everything you need to know about the motivation behind them. Blogging is popular in Malaysia and several of its more prominent bloggers eventually even ran for office; one of them, Jeff Ooi, becoming a member of the Malaysian parliament, which makes the limitations all the more unfortunate. American university a hot-bed of censorship. No country lives up to its ideals, but when the place where those ideals are most openly trodden on is the country’s university system, you know something’s wrong. The U.S. is big on free speech, enshrining it in the country’s highest law, the Constitution. But over the past decade or more, more and more university systems have outlawed speech that is “offensive.” Offensive speech is the only speech that requires constitutional and legal guarantee of course. The right to say “good morning” or “nice shoes” or “I like sunshine” is not one likely to be abrogated. The University of Massachusetts Amherst has made – I swear I am not making this up – on-campus rallies on “controversial” subjects (vague, much?) subject to a set of regulations that make them difficult if not impossible to stage. That’s right. At this point, it is easier for Egyptians to protest for the end of the Mubarak regime than UM students to protest against the continuation of U.S. presence in Iraq. I would call the administration of the University of Massachusetts a bunch of douchebags but it probably breaks the school’s speech code. This week in Egypt characterized by blogger abductionsSandmonkey abducted, beaten, freed. Well-known Egyptian blogger Sandmonkey was “arrested,” beaten up, then let go. His blog was also hit, “due to problems related to traffic and attacks (many from IPs in Saudi Arabia),” and has been taken offline “temporarily suspended until the problems can be resolved.” That was on the third; a post appeared again on the sixth. Kareem Amer. Kareem was a cause celebre internationally. He served four years in Egyptian prison for criticizing Islam as well as his country’s leadership. Although many Mideast youth defended his right to speak his mind and conscious, he was reviled in the Egyptian press and elsewhere. He was beaten and otherwise ill-treated by his jailers, repeatedly during his time in jail. He went missing around 11:00 p.m. local time on February 6 after leaving Tahrir Square with a friend. Wael Ghonim. The Google middle eastern marketing executive was held blindfolded by Egyptian security forces for 12 days. When he was released, he admitted to being one of the founders of the We are all Khaled Said group, whose Facebook page organized a lot of the protests. His subsequent TV interviews and speeches have rejuvenating a protest movement that showed signs of flagging before Ghonim was released. What do you like about This Week in Online Tyranny?

first_imgNew Delhi, Dec 4 (PTI) Delhi Daredevils was renamed as Delhi Capitals on Tuesday with a hope that it would bring a change in fortunes of the franchise after a poor track record over the past 11 IPL seasons. Co-owners Parth Jindal, representing JSW Sport, and Kiran Kumar Grandhi of GMR, unveiled the new name of the team. Jindal, whose JSW sport acquired a 50 per cent stake in the Delhi franchise last year, also announced that Shreyas Iyer will continue to lead the team despite the presence of Shikhar Dhawan. Dhawan returns to Delhi for the 2019 season after being traded by Sunrisers Hyderabad. Australian great Ricky Ponting will continue to coach the team. Jindal explained why his team zeroed in on the new name of the team. “Delhi is the power centre of the country, it is the capital, therefore the name Delhi Capitals,” he said. The team has retained the old red and blue colour in the new team logo. “Our logo has been inspired by the design of Parliament House. Tiger is our national animal and the three tigers idea is derived from the Ashok Chakra,” said Jindal. Delhi have Rs 25 crore to spend at the IPL auction on December 18 and Jindal said the team has its plans in place. “We obviously can’t share them with you. The core of the team has remained the same for the last couple of years. We need to invest more in the youth and going forward, that is something we will continue to focus on,” said Jindal.advertisement “With Dhawan, we have got more solidity at the top. And the young guys who have been with us (Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant) are doing well for India. The captain and coach are the same, there is continuity there,” said the JSW Director, when asked about the team’s dismal run season after season. Pravin Amre remains a part of the support staff and joining him next season will be Mohammad Kaif. The team had finished at the bottom of the standings last year when Gautam Gambhir stepped down as captain midway into the IPL. Iyer was then given the leadership role. A CEO to oversee day-to-day running of the team will be named soon. Under the current ownership, the chairmanship will change every two years between JSW and GMR. PTI BS PDSPDSlast_img read more
