€14.7m quay extension for Killybegs Harbour welcomed

first_imgMinster Joe McHugh has said the new €14.7million investment to extend the quay at Killybegs Harbour in Donegal is guaranteed to drive business for the fishing sector, cruise liner operators and associated business and tourism.“This is brilliant news to get confirmed for Donegal – Government has confirmed a major pot of money for next phase of works to begin in the coming weeks,” Minister McHugh said.“Some €14.7million will be invested in Killybegs harbour in the coming year under Project Ireland 2040. “It will help to fund a 120m quay extension at Smooth Point – a significant development for the north west coast and a big boost for the county.“The work will improve quay space and ultimately that is good for safety at the peak of the fishing season when congestion can build. But it will also help to grow the industry in the port and the associated marine businesses as well as transport and service sectors and also tourism.“Investment of this scale is helping to support an important coastal and rural community. It is helping to make Killybegs among the best ports in Europe for the fishing industry. It is good for the wider seafood sector. It is good for tourism and it is good for helping businesses to grow and diversify. A bigger port means more opportunities.”The Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine said the work to extend the quay is expected to start in September. The timeline is for the work to be complete within 9 months. This is the second phase of the Smooth Point project after €6.6m investment in recent years to remove sediment.Minister McHugh said: “Previous work on the pier was hugely successful in supporting the fishing industry, supporting businesses and drawing in other marine traffic and business.“The next phase of the major quay wall extension will provide long-term berthing for approximately 10 large pelagic fishing trawlers and will facilitate safe stern-on berthing.“It will also help support Government policy to see Ireland become the hub for all the marine activities that can be generated by the sustainable harvesting of these renewable resources in our marine sphere.”€14.7m quay extension for Killybegs Harbour welcomed was last modified: August 2nd, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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)last_img read more

Free Camera Log for Film and Video Productions

first_imgStay organized on-set and in the editing bay with this free camera log for use on film and video productions.When it comes to filmmaking or video production, there’s always a lot of information to remember when you sit down in the editing bay. If you’ve ever been an editor on a disorganized set, you know it can be incredibly frustrating to not know which audio clips go with which video clips. This is where a camera log comes into play.By using a camera log on-set, cinematographers and directors can convey information to the editor for each shot. By taking the time to fill out this form on set you can save you or your editor a lot of time in post.With that in mind, we’ve created a camera log for you to use on your next production – and it’s totally free. To download it, simply click the download link below. If you’ve never used a camera log on-set, here’s some quick information about how to use one:What is a Camera Log?A camera log serves as a tool to communicate information between the cinematographer and the editor. While on set, the cinematographer (or camera assistant, depending on the size of the production) will fill out information related to the camera settings for each shot. This helps both the editor and cinematographer understand details pertaining to each shot. On the form there is also a field for notes, where you can add any on-set notes that are important for post-production.It’s important to note that a camera log is different than an editing log. Unlike an editing log, the camera log doesn’t have timecode information, which might be useful if you are working on a large-scale production or working with film. However, in the digital age you can usually get by with not physically writing down timecode information on-set. So depending on your shoot, you can probably simply replace a traditional editing log with a camera log like the free one provided below.When is a camera log used?A camera log is used anytime the cinematographer wants to save camera information for post-production or external referencing. While you probably won’t use a camera log if you are a director/cinematographer on a small shoot, having a camera log on a medium to large scale shoot can help you stay organized and help streamline the editing process.Once inside the editing bay, an editor can use the camera log to help sync the correct audio and video together. The notes tab can also be used to convey information regarding the shoot and special considerations in the editing bay.How is a camera log used?A camera log is a fairly straight-forward form to use. Simply fill out each respective field for each shot. Let’s break down each field below:   Lens     Focal Length   Scene     Scene # You will typically print out a few camera logs and bring them to the set. While on set, either the cinematographer or assistant camera operator will fill out the camera log with the appropriate information. After a shoot has wrapped, the camera log will be saved and given to the editor to be used in post production. If you are a cinematographer,  you might also want to save a copy for yourself to reference in the future.You can download the form by clicking the text below. There are two templates included in the download: One to fill out by hand and another to fill out on a computer. You can use Preview on a Mac or Adobe Acrobat on a PC to edit the computer template. The interactive file can also be uploaded and filled out on an iPad if you want to go paper-free.DOWNLOAD FREE CAMERA LOG HEREInterested in learning more about filmmaking?

And Southgate spoke about when he first saw Mount play several years ago.When asked what he thought about Mount after training him for a few days, England boss Southgate told reporters: “Exactly what I thought of him when I saw him at 16 playing for our U16s, he’s a quality player, an intelligent footballer, presses well, has a real eye for goal, good quality.”So, nothing I’ve seen surprises me at all. We’ve had him marked as a player from the first time I saw him at St. George’s [Park].”Chelsea would be the same on that, I think, but of course he’s now been able to have the opportunity to play in the Premier League and display that against top teams.”I think you saw his penalty in the Super Cup, [that] was a nice cameo of what he’s about, really.” last_img read more

Review Liverpool – Roma

first_imgAfter a slow start, Liverpool woke up and thanks in large part to the magical Egyptian Mo Salah (2 goals, 2 assists) defeated Roma 5-2.There were no surprises in Jurgen Klopp’s starting lineup. Karius was on goal, Andy Robertson, Van Dijk, Lovren and Alexander-Arnold formed the defense, Milner, Henderson and Oxlade-Chamberlain were the midfielders and Mo Salah, Firmino and Mane was the deadly trio up front. After the rare tactical switch versus Barcelona, Eusebio Di Francesco went back to his regular formation. As usual, Alisson Becker was Roma’s goalkeeper, Juan Jesus, Manolas and Fazio were the three central defenders, Florenzi and Kolarov were the wing backs, while De Rossi, Strootman and Nainggolan were the midfield destroyers. Cengiz Under was the player who was supposed to be the second striker behind Edin Dzeko.It was a grey, rainy night in Liverpool, but you wouldn’t know it based on the rocking atmosphere at the stadium. The most interesting moment of the first 15 minutes was the breaking of the assistant referee’s flag and the failure to find a suitable replacement. He had to “wave” the plastic stick for a couple of minutes. Liverpool appeared phlegmatic, unable to handle Roma’s high press and defensive formation. It didn’t look like the Liverpool we’ve got used to seeing this season.Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain hyper-extended his knee while making a tackle and had to be subbed off in the 17th minute of the match. Gio Wijnaldum came onto the pitch to replace him. In the 18th minute, Kolarov took a long-range shot. The ball swerved and faked out Karius, who managed to get some fingertips on it, just enough for the ball to hit the cross bar instead of the net. In the 29th minute, Sadio Mane broke loose and had an enormous opportunity to score. He was one on one with Roma’s goalkeeper, yet failed to find the net. A few seconds later, he had another chance, as Salah found him in the box, but once again, he missed badly. Then, Salah had a shot of his own saved by Alisson. The Reds were finally waking up.Mo Salah did what Mo Salah does best in the 36th minute – score wonderful goals. He set himself up for a fabulous curling left-footed strike from the edge of the box that ended up in the upper corner. No keeper in the world could’ve stopped that. The rocky start was officially over. Thanks to some Salah magic, Klopp’s men were up 1-0. A couple of minutes later, Lovren was left all alone during a Liverpool corner. His header hit the cross bar, but it should’ve hit the net. The Reds were riding their momentum. Alisson was forced to make another save on a Wijnaldum effort.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…The game had turned from a lull to a drag race in a heart bit. At the stroke of 45 minutes, the little Egyptian struck again. Liverpool beat Roma’s high press with a couple of passes. Firmino started pushing the ball and saw Salah making a run. He passed the ball to Premier League’s Player of the Year, who then elegantly chipped the ball over Alisson’s outstretched legs for a 2-0 Liverpool lead. The Brazilian keeper was unnecessarily way out of his goal line. Roma’s former player wasn’t celebrating his goals, but was punishing his former team nevertheless. The Italians were shell-shocked going into the break and their coach was understandably concerned.The Czech international Patrik Schick replaced the invisible Cengiz Under at half-time. Roma was having real trouble coping with Liverpool’s speed. Salah beat an offside trap, went into the penalty area and had all the time in the world to pick out a pass. He found Mane, who simply couldn’t miss from that position. 3-0 Liverpool. The Reds had total control and were turning a Champions League semi-final into a stroll in the park. Roma’s players didn’t know what hit them. They were constantly shouting at each other, annoyed at the inability to counter their opponent’s play.Klopp found the weak spot in Roma’s tactical positioning and his players were exploiting it. Salah was finding acres of space and in the 61st minute, he used it once again. This time, he freed himself up by dribbling past his opponent and then found an open Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian striker tapped the ball in and the advantage rose to four. Maxime Gonalons and Diego Perotti for De Rossi and Juan Jesus were Di Francesco’s first moves from the bench. Moments later, Firmino scored his second goal in succession and The Reds’ 5th of the contest through a corner kick header.With 15 minutes to go, Klopp decided to take off Salah. He received the most deserved standing ovation of the season. Ings was his replacement. Roma got a goal back courtesy of Edin Dzeko in the 81st minute. Nainggolan sent a long ball from the center of the midfield. Lovren misjudged his jump, leaving Dzeko alone with Karius. The Bosnian calmly scored into the near corner and it was 5-1. Then, Roma grabbed a second away goal when Nainggolan’s shot hit Milner’s hand in the penalty area and Perotti converted the ensuing penalty kick. Roma didn’t give up, Liverpool fell asleep and all of a sudden, there was light at the end on the tunnel for the Italians. Can they repeat the comeback against Barcelona? Probably not, but it can’t be ruled out.last_img read more
