LETTERKENNY AC SHAPING UP FOR FESTIVAL OF INTERNATIONAL ATHLETICS

first_imgThe Letterkenny AC Sub 4 Minute Mile Challenge Event will be bringing international athletics to Donegal on the 18th May 2013.Details of the Four Minute Mile Challenge are announcedPreparations are well underway for what promises to be one of the most eagerly awaited and exciting track and field fixtures of the season on Irish soil.As part of the official opening of the Danny McDaid Athletics Track at the Aura Leisure Centre, the event will incorporate a curtain raiser of juvenile events, followed by the elite senior programme, with an exciting array of Irish and international athletes on show. The feature event will be the Mens Mile where it is hoped we will witness the first ever sub 4 minute mile in Donegal. Kenyans Jonathan Kiplimo and Hillary Kipkorir will come with an eye on taking victory from the Irish hopefuls. Paul Robinson, fresh from his success in the Great Irish Mile, leads the Irish charge, and along with the Letterkenny trio of Darren McBrearty, Danny Mooney and Ruairi Finnegan, and Derry’s Conor Bradley, it will be interesting to see how many Irish men can dip under the magical 4 minute barrier.The mens 800m will feature one of Ireland’s brightest young talents, Letterkenny’s Mark English. He will be looking to hold off the challenge of Brian Hill of the USA, in a bid to impress the home crowd, and along with his recent 47.30 seconds over 400m, will use the race as key preparation for the European Under 23 championships in Finland in July.Brendan and Danny McDaid at the launchDouble European Cross Country Champion Fionnuala Britton is set to start her track season in the womens 3000m. A recent European Indoor Bronze medal in March shows that Fionnuala’s talent also lies on the track. She will be looking towards posting a fast time over 3000m, with a view towards the World Track and Field Championships in Moscow in August.Another Moscow hopeful, and also talked about as one of Ireland’s next stars, Brian Gregan leads the field in the mens 400m, and will be looking forward to making further breakthroughs this year following his European final last year, where he narrowly missed out on a medal. In the mens 100m and womens 200m, some members of the Irish 4 x 100m relay squads will be looking to post some fast early season times to help with their preparations for the European Team Championships in Dublin in June.The womens 200m will see double Olympian Joanne Cuddihy stepping down a distance against National Indoor champion Kelly Proper. Proper will also double up in the Long Jump, where she will face tough opposition from Tir Chonaill’s Mary McLoone, who will be looking to steal a victory on her Donegal soil.The mens shot putt promises to be one of the best competitions seen in Ireland in years with London Olympian Kim Christensen from Denmark and Daniel Stahl from Sweden doing battle with Seán Breathnach, multiple Irish champion.The mens 3000m will feature the fast improving John Travers, fresh from the European Indoor Championships, and along with Joe Sweeney, both coached by Jerry Kiernan, will be seeking a fast time. The 1 hour track race, a unique event, will bring some of Ireland’s best long distance talent together on the track, with Barry Minnock looking to have a go at John Treacy’s Irish record of 19625m.In the womens race, the winner will be assured of an Irish record, as the distance has never been recorded for Irish women before, and Olympian Maria McCambridge will be looking to establish this Irish record. In the womens 800m, Laura Crowe will look to show some early season form, in what is developing into one of the most competitive Irish events, with many Irish 800m women making the breakthrough to international level. In the mens javelin, Matthew Martin will be challenged by Strabane’s Aaron Crawford. The womens shot putt features Niamh Murphy and Andrew Heney features in the mens high jump.The last event of the evening will be the mens 4 x 400m relay event, where a number of teams will have their eyes on Irish records, and we hope that this event will provide a fitting finale to our festival of International Athletics in Letterkenny on Saturday 18th May.LETTERKENNY AC SHAPING UP FOR FESTIVAL OF INTERNATIONAL ATHLETICS was last modified: April 24th, 2013 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:Danny McDaidFour Minute MileLetterkenny AClast_img read more

City wins for marketing

first_imgThe city of Santa Clarita won two first-place and one third-place award during the annual conference of the City-County Communications and Marketing Association. The city’s three entries consisted of marketing or community relations programs the city completed in 2004. Santa Clarita’s programs were among 700 applications submitted for awards this year. Santa Clarita was awarded third place for the “David March for Justice” Rally/Video in the category of Communications Marketing Tools for TV and Videos for One Time Special Programming. In an effort to draw national attention to the issue of extradition from Mexico for those who have committed major crimes in the United States, the city of Santa Clarita took on the cause by hosting a rally at College of the Canyons stadium and created a video tape to help sway lawmakers who were needed to force a change in Mexico’s extradition policy. First place was awarded to the city in the category of Communications Marketing Plans and Tools for the “Shop Santa Clarita” program. In 2004, the Santa Clarita City Council wanted to make sure that area residents understood where the city’s boundaries are and that shopping outside the boundaries yields no revenue for the city of Santa Clarita. The six-month “Shop Santa Clarita” campaign included radio, television, print advertisements and more, all promoting the benefits of shopping locally. Santa Clarita was also awarded first place in the category of Communications Marketing Community Visioning for “The Big Picture.” “The Big Picture” was not only the city’s new community strategic plan name, it was also the theme, featuring a 1940s old-time movie theater in all outreach materials. The brochure describing the program included a pair of 3-D glasses showing the the dates, time and place of the public meetings and “The Big Picture” hotline number. “I think these awards and national recognition show that Santa Clarita is cutting-edge when it comes to marketing and communications,” said Gail Ortiz, public information officer for the city. “The fact that Santa Clarita’s creative work was recognized nationally is a tremendous compliment to the work being done on behalf of our city.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast September 9, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The big chatter for the week is that we are going to see a massive “heat dome” envelope the eastern corn belt. Before you get too excited, let’s bring this talk back to earth just a bit. We are going to be much more conservative in our look at this.  Yes, it will be significantly warmer this week. But remember, we have been cooler than normal almost every day this month so far…so we maintain that the “warmth” we see for most days in the up coming pattern will just be enough to manage a return to normal September weather for the month. I also think that models are also way over stating the heat potential…the European thinks we get to 94-95 degrees, and the more conservative GFS still says lower 90s. Don’t get us wrong…Wednesday-Thursday will be rather warm. I do think we end up well above normal over most of Ohio those days, but we also have a threat of moisture coming late Wednesday, which will likely cap any big run in temps just a bit. Anyway, the take-away here is that there is potential for the warmth story to not be as dramatic as what has been promoted through multiple other sources over the past few days. Time will tell, and hopefully we do get some warmth. Our feeling is that it ultimately will not be anywhere what we truly need – which is warmth like Wednesday-Thursday for about 2-3 weeks straight. But, that is a story for another day. Back to the local weather pattern for the next 10 days to 2 weeks.Today we see a mix of clouds and sun as the remains of the moisture that trekked across the eastern corn belt yesterday moves off to the east. We see better sunshine tomorrow through midday Wednesday with dry weather all the way through that period. Clouds will be increasing Wednesday afternoon, and we have to watch for a few scattered showers Wednesday evening past midnight over northern Ohio. From I-70 north, we cant rule out picking up a few hundredths to a few tenths, but coverage only about 40%. Thursday will bring partly to mostly sunny skies to central and western Ohio, but the eastern third of the state, particularly in NE Ohio, will see an additional .25″-.75″ of rain as action from that Wednesday wave amplifies just a bit.Clouds increase again on Friday with rain developing as a frontal boundary sweeps through. Our action likely holds off until mid afternoon ,but then goes through evening and past midnight before ending. The showers bring .25″-.6″ to about 60% of the state. Action will be done before sunrise Saturday morning.Sunny, drier and slightly cooler weather returns for the weekend through next Tuesday. Clouds will start to builds Tuesday afternoon, with a chance of scattered showers Tuesday night in far SW Ohio. We end up with a quarter of an inch or less there overnight Tuesday night, and only 20% coverage. Wednesday turns out partly to mostly sunny again, as rains stay farther west in to IN and KY.10 day rain potentialThe extended period has a nice dry start, with sunshine Thursday through Saturday the 21st. On Sunday the 22nd, clouds increase, and we should see some shower action by afternoon. The rains continue and pick up intensity to start the following week Monday the 23rd. Rain totals there can be .25″-1″ with coverage at 90%. Then we turn much cooler and dry again for Tuesday the 24th.last_img read more

Bing Shopping Grows 169% in June

first_imgfrederic lardinois Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Microsoft#news#NYT#web Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…center_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Bing Shopping, the comparison shopping tool that is part of Microsoft’s new search engine, saw some impressive growth last month. According to Hitwise’s Heather Dougherty, visits to Bing Shopping increased 169% last month and Bing is now the 4th most popular shopping comparison site in the US. Just last month, Bing was still in 8th place. Clearly, Microsoft’s marketing muscle behind Bing.com and consumer interest in Microsoft’s Double Cashback promotion brought a lot of new users to Bing Shopping in June.According to Hitwise, about one third of all the visitors to Bing Shopping came from Bing.com and MSN. What is interesting, is that Hitwise found that 66% of the visitors who came from Bing and 50% of those who came from MSN hadn’t been to Bing Shopping in the last 30 days. Given that Bing is only now getting on a lot of consumers’ radar, these numbers make a lot of sense.Given this growth for Bing Shopping, it doesn’t come as a surprise that most of Bing’s competitors lost some market share during the last month. All of the top 3 shopping tools (Yahoo Shopping, Bizrate, and Shopzilla) lost between 2% and 5%. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more

Startup Founders Share Their Inspirational Heroes

first_imgHow to Cultivate the Skill of Being a Creative … Tags:#startups scott gerber AI Will Empower Leaders, Not Replace Them How to Meet the Demands of the Socially Conscio…center_img Who’s your hero? Who do you want to emulate, and why?To find out who inspires startup founders to create and grow their companies, we asked eight successful young entrepreneurs from the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) about the individuals that they looked to emulate in their businesses and their lives. 1. Elon MuskAs a serial entrepreneur myself, I envy anyone that can successfully juggle multiple projects at once. It’s one thing to do it with moderate success, but it’s astounding to see it carried out at the multi-million dollar revenue level. Elon Musk, the current CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, is also the Chairman of Solar City. Previously, he was a co-founder of PayPal. The fact that all of the aforementioned brands have such immense success is very inspiring to me. It’s obvious that Elon has learned to optimize his time and focus on his priorities every single day. While I don’t expect to ever come close to mirroring Elon’s success, he is a great example of a well-diversified entrepreneur that has found success through a great deal of hard work and innovation. – Logan Lenz, Endagon 2. Daniel PinkDaniel Pink, author of A Whole New Mind is one of my heroes because he thinks about where culture as a whole is going and what that means for business owners and leaders, which is what I strive to do for the branding industry. Pink always manages to make me walk away with great ideas for my business but doesn’t do the thinking for me. He is able to take data and trends in culture behavior and make sense of them in a way that can be valuable to anyone in any industry. – Caitlin McCabe, Real Bullets Branding 3. Steve JobsWhile this may be controversial, Steve Jobs was always a respectable man. He had great imagination and visionary skills. Although he may not have had the social skills to treat employees properly, he made them grow better and develop more to be the best they can be and to create the most revolutionary products. Steve would turn them down and force them to edit what they’ve done if it wasn’t satisfactory. His management skills worked and he was a great leader. Steve was a genius marketeer of any product you wouldn’t expect to need, but Steve always found a reason for why you’ll need “one more thing.” His presentations were enthusiastic, life-changing, and changed industries and life to be more social whenever, wherever and however. As Steve did, I aspire for success to change the world. – Lane Sutton, Social Media From A Teen 4. Amelia EarhartAmelia Earhart embodied every quality that I try to sow into my own life: determination, audacity, bravery, ambition, compassion. She was a trailblazer and a dreamer who wouldn’t take no for an answer when she was determined to accomplish something. Amelia Earhart also became a major personal brand, licensing her name and image on a variety of products. As a woman, I also love and respect that she opened doors for other women in the male-dominated world of aviation. The legacy she left behind is astounding and she’s still inspiring people today – like me! – Natalie MacNeil, She Takes On The World 5. John ElwayAs odd as this may sound, I am mentioning a football player, John Elway, because of his willingness to never be out of a game and knowing he could pull it out at the end. He faced a lot of disappointment in his career, yet ultimately retired a champion. As an entrepreneur, you face numerous set backs and you encounter projects you don’t know how to get through. If you believe you can get it done – no matter the obstacles, as long as you apply the right strategy and have the right team – you can come out with the win! – Raoul Davis, Ascendant Group 6. Richard BransonGrowing up, Michael Jordan was my hero. These days, I have a ton of respect for serial entrepreneur Richard Branson. His Virgin Group has started over 400 companies. It is one thing for entrepreneurs to make millions in one thing, that takes guts and dedication. But it’s another thing when someone replicates success after success with entirely different business models, products and services. That takes a person with massive ADD, a lot of coffee and one amazing team! – Peter Nguyen, Advertiser360 7. My Kids – And Making Them ProudI recently listened to a podcast on parenting called “Love, Dad,” and one of the hosts suggested you should act as though your kids are watching you all the time. He was applying that philosophy to his personal life (drinking, smoking, gambling), but I have realized it would be a great way to guide actions at work as well. I can look at what I am doing and ask, “Is this what I would do if my kids were watching me? Am I treating everyone the way I should be? Am I working as hard as I should, or am I being lazy? Am I doing something meaningful?” Answers to these questions help guide me and identify the type of person I want to be. – Brant Bukowsky, Veterans United Home Loans 8. All The OvercomersI am inspired by the tales of people who overcome hardships, who exhibit leadership, and who fight against all odds and succeed. Though I have lived through many ups and downs, my struggles pale in comparison to what many others have faced in life. When I hear those stories, I can only wish that I could be like them, and have their extraordinary courage and perseverance. I believe that limiting myself to only one hero would limit my ability to see the best in myself and everyone around me. I want to emulate the best business leaders, the best athletes, the best political leaders, and especially the everyday hard working men and women who make a difference every day in the lives of others. Anyone who makes a difference in the life of one other human being is truly someone to be emulated. – Michael Seiman, CPX InteractiveThe Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) is an invite-only nonprofit organization comprised of the world’s most promising young entrepreneurs. In partnership with Citi, the YEC recently launched #StartupLab, a free virtual mentorship program that helps millions of entrepreneurs start and grow businesses via live video chats, an expert content library and email lessons.
