first_imgDonegal County Museum is to hold  ‘The Glass Album’ exhibition in the Donegal County Museum starting on Friday 5th July at 7pm.This exhibition tells the story of Derry photographer James Glass who took a unique series of photographs of the Gweedore and Cloughaneely areas in the late nineteenth century.These photographs which have not been on display since they were first taken, are connected to the famous 1889 “Land War” trial of Fr McFadden and some of his parishioners following the killing of District Inspector Martin in Gaoth Dobhair. It is believed that James Glass was commissioned by the defence to take a series photographs depicting tenant life in Gweedore. These photographs subsequently became known as the Glass Album.This was the first use of photographs as evidence in an Irish court. There are two known copies of the Album – one in the collections of the National Museums of Northern Ireland, the other on display for the first time in this exhibition.As part of the exhibition the Museum is seeking to make contact with any relatives of those who were directly associated with the trial.The exhibition will run from 5th July – 31st August.

first_imgThis year Smoky Mountain was invited to the State Dual Championship for the second year in a row.  The Mustangs were seeded 5th in the top of the West bracket and slated to face number 4 seed Hunter Huss at Chase High School.  Chase was the 1 seed and they were facing 8 seed Monroe High School.When I matched us up against Hunter Huss on paper it looked like a close match.  I knew our lightweights were going to have a really tough night as all of the Huss lightweights were solid up to 138.  We knew we were getting a forfeit at 106 which Hunter Lassiter picked up but the rest were experienced upper classmen against our lineup of freshmen and one sophomore.  I adjusted our lineup to cover the opening we hat at 132 and to create a better match up at 120 but it didn’t work out as well as I had hoped.  We didn’t pick up a win until Jeffery Woodard stepped on the mat at 138.  He matched up against an excellent wrestler and fell behind in the first period but never lost his cool and wrestled at his pace and kept intense pressure on his opponent wearing him down and pinned him late in the second period.  Following Woodard’s win Andy Houston at 145 took a quick 1 minute pin and things picked up for us.  Tony Houston at 152 ran into an excellent counter wrestler and lost along with Gabe Rodriguez at 160.  Coleman Elders stepped in at 170 and at the end of the first period fought to a 0 to 0 score but took control in the second period and pinned his opponent with 30 seconds remaining in the period for the win.  From there we had a tough run through 182 to 220 but Andrew Lillard at 285 closed out the match with a hard fought decision win 6 to 1.The final score was Hunter Huss 51, Smoky Mountain 27.  This ended out dual meet season.  We are now focusing all of our efforts on the regional tournament set for 10 and 11 Feb at West Lincoln High School.last_img read more

You’re not alone.See also: iOS 8.0.1 Kills More Than It Cures, So Apple Pulled It The first update to the week-old iOS 8, Apple’s new operating system for iPhones and iPads, ended up crippling cellular reception and the Touch ID fingerprint scanner for many users—primarily those with the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. Apple yanked the update pending a fix.In the meantime, you may be among those stuck with this dud of an update. But take heart: A few minutes with iTunes and you can revert your phone back to the previous version of iOS 8. Here’s how.Restoration Hardware, iPhone StyleEssentially, you’ll be downloading and installing the old software, a process that will erase everything else on your device. That’s why it’s crucial to back up your phone first. This ensures you won’t lose stuff like messages, apps or settings.In fact, the process is very similar to the way you’d downgrade your phone back to iOS 7. If for some reason you’ve decided iOS 8 just isn’t for you at this moment, it might be time to check out our guide to downgrading. (It might not be possible for much longer, though, so you may want to hurry.) See also: How To Downgrade iOS 8 Back To iOS 7For our purposes here, though, all you really want to do is get back the functionality iOS 8.0.1 slapped off your big new expensive Apple smartphone. Here’s how: Download the last official stable build of iOS 8, i.e. version 8.0.0, onto your desktop computer. Those show up as IPSW files, available for the iPhone 6 here and iPhone 6 Plus here. These are the official versions from Apple.Connect your iPhone to your computer using the USB/Lightning cable, and launch iTunes.On the iPhone page in iTunes, perform a backup by choosing “this computer” and tapping “Back Up Now.” This saves your current iPhone data to your computer. Forget this step and you’ll end up with a clean and empty, factory-fresh iDevice.Now use iTunes to restore. In the Windows version, you press and hold the Shift key while hitting “Restore.” Mac OS X users, do the same thing—just hold the Alt key instead of Shift as you choose “Restore.”In the window that pops up, pick the IPSW file for your specific device. Then follow the prompts. (If a nag warning tells you to shut off “Find my iPhone,” go to your iCloud settings and deactivate it for now.)Now tap “Restore backup,” pick the iTunes backup you just made a few moments ago and let the program do the rest.Voila! When you’re done, you should have an iPhone running iOS 8.0.0 with full cellular reception and Touch ID fingerprint scanning. And maybe, just maybe, a new wait-and-see approach whenever Apple sends out new software. Photo courtesy of Apple, adapted by Adriana Lee for ReadWriteUpdate: iOS developer Devran Ünal reached out to say that a full restore isn’t even necessary. He states that simply getting the older iOS 8 files and choosing “Update” in iTunes instead should do the job. No need to restore after 8.0.1.iPhone 6: 6 Plus: on “Update” via iTunes.— Devran (Cosmo) Ünal (@maccosmo) September 24, 2014If this doesn’t work for you, and performing a restore doesn’t help, you have one more option: putting your device into recovery mode. Apple outlines the steps for that here. Let us know which method works for you in the comments below. (Thanks, @maccosmo!)

We should expect a funky design for Pod Zero, which RDM claims is perfect for airports, shopping centers, and theme parks, where transport is limited. “This is a massive day for our company and puts us right at the forefront of driverless pod manufacturing,” said David Keene, chief executive of RDM Group. “Pod Zero represents the next generation of pod and features different drivetrain, steering systems and a new striking interior that is dominated by video screens that can play adverts, information videos or showcase the view from outside.”Looking for revenue from…ads?RDM is banking on advertising to be the money maker for its driverless project. Instead of the person sitting inside the pod focusing on the road (or path), it wants them to interact with the iPads during their journey.“We have taken learning from the LUTZ project and moved it on significantly so we now have a manufacturing process that could be ramped up to meet more than £15m of anticipated new orders,” said Keene. The LUTZ project was part of the UK Government’s Transport System Catapult Autodrive project. The new pods will have a range of 60 miles, not great when compared to cars, but enough for short trips in public places. It has a top speed of 15 mph, which should allow Pod Zero to remain on the pathways. RDM has also ensured that the pod is accessible for disabled people and has provided wheelchair access. Pods might be one of the emerging technologies that we’re just starting to see enter the market. We’ve already heard that disabled and old people will benefit the most from self-driving, and the pods could be another way for people with difficulties walking long distance to get around easily.  IT Trends of the Future That Are Worth Paying A… 5 Ways IoT can Help to Reduce Automatic Vehicle…center_img For Self-Driving Systems, Infrastructure and In… David Curry Break the Mold with Real-World Logistics AI and…last_img read more

LINCOLN, Neb. — Ohio State football players and coaches had their sights set on Saturday’s game at No. 16 Illinois before they even boarded a plane back to Columbus following the disappointment of last Saturday’s game at Nebraska. For two-and-a-half quarters of the Buckeyes’ game against the No. 14 Cornhuskers, it appeared that OSU had possibly turned a corner in the 2011 the season. OSU ran out to a 27-6 lead against Nebraska, scoring on their first drive to silence the Memorial Stadium crowd of 85,426. The Buckeyes continued to pile the points on from there. Buckeyes’ offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Jim Bollman said he had seen significant improvement in his team’s practices leading up to the game and wasn’t surprised to see the team succeeding against Nebraska for large parts of the game. “It’s hard to put your finger on one thing because the guys worked real hard in practice,” Bollman said. “You could see some more production. You could see some guys improving. (Freshman quarterback) Braxton (Miller) showed a lot more confidence, which was really good. “In the end, we weren’t good enough.” Miller, who was 5-of-8 passing for 95 yards and a touchdown with 91 rushing yards as well, exited the game with an ankle injury in the third quarter with a Buckeyes’ lead still intact, but momentum had already shifted to the home team. Nebraska’s now-famous second-half rally, which saw the Cornhuskers score 28 unanswered points, resulted in a 34-27 win. The comeback was the largest in Nebraska football history. Since the loss, OSU players and coaches have said they’re confident about this weekend’s game against Illinois. That was the message to members of the media just minutes after the historic loss to Nebraska too. “We’re about to start into our divisional schedule,” sophomore wide receiver Corey “Philly” Brown said. “So, we’re just going to move on and try to get to the Big Ten Championship game and try to win out the rest of these games.” After the loss to Nebraska, Brown said the confidence level was still high in the OSU locker room. “We fought hard out there. We did good out there,” Brown said. “We know what our defense can do, so we should be good going against (Illinois).” OSU junior tight end Reid Fragel said that having people doubt his teammates for the past several weeks has been frustrating, but said that he also remains confident. “We know as a family and as a team what we can do and what we’re capable of,” Fragel said. The Fighting Illini are 6-0 on the season, but first-year OSU head coach Luke Fickell said his team has already faced comparable adversity in recent times. “These guys are resilient. They’ve been through a lot,” Fickell said. “It’s going to come down to their commitment to each other. They’ve got a lot of pride in what they do. They’re going to have to call upon their pride and their pride in this university.” Senior left tackle Mike Adams returned from a five-game suspension and made his 2011 debut at Nebraska. After the game, Adams said the team still has plenty to play for. “Kudos to Nebraska — they played good enough to win the game,” Adams said. “We just have to get better and keep going. I can’t wait to keep on rolling through these next weeks and get some wins.” Fickell agreed, saying there’s only one way to get overcome disappointment in football. “That’s get back out there and do it again,” he said. Saturday’s game at Illinois’ Memorial Stadium kicks off at 3:30 p.m. and will be televised on ABC. read more

first_imgAbout 9:00 p.m., the USCG helicopter located the wreckage on a steep snow-covered mountain at 2,000 ft elevation. The AKANG helicopter lowered a pararescueman to the site and he observed that the pilot, Andrews, had received fatal injuries. The AKRCC coordinated a ground and air search with the Civil Air Patrol throughout the day, however weather at the accident site prevented access to the location in the mountains. Brett Andrews, 31, of Anchorage was flying from Merrill Field to Valdez, when his Piper PA-28-180 crashed about a mile south-southeast of Whittier. According to the Alaska Rescue Coordination Center (AKRCC), an ELB signal was received about 9:40 a.m. However, the ELT was not registered to the airplane owner and there were no overdue airplane reports in Alaska. The following day, the Alaska State Troopers search and rescue command coordinated the recovery of Andrews by the Alaska Mountain Rescue Group and the Alaska Department of Public Safety Helo 3. The airplane was outfitted with an emergency locator beacon (ELB) that was designed to instantly transmit a distress signal to search and rescue satellites, thereby alerting rescue personnel within minutes of the location of the crash, and specifically to whom the ELT was registered.center_img Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享According to the National Transportation Safety Board, the emergency beacon on the plane that crashed near Whittier, on May 12, was carrying the wrong information. After a concerned family member reported an overdue airplane to the Kenai Flight Service Station, the Federal Aviation Administration issued an alert notice at 3:16 p.m. The AKRCC coordinated the launch of an Alaska Air National Guard HH-60 helicopter and a U.S. Coast Guard MH-60T helicopter from Cordova to continue the search in the Whittier area. According to the NTSB, the registered owner on file for the emergency transmitter was an overseas government agency marked with a country code from Ireland. The report does not indicate if the beacon’s registration issues played any role in the crash itself. Pilots are required to register a plane or transmitter when it changes ownership and every two years after that. The cause of the crash has yet to be determined.last_img read more
