DANNY O’DONNELL says Milford are capable of bouncing straight back from the disappointment of their relegation from Division 1 in the All-County League.Shorn of the services of several key players this summer, relegation has been on the cards for the Moyle View side for some time now.The likes of Tony McNamee, Ronan Docherty, Ryan McMahon and Kane Barrett have been unavailable to O’Donnell at key periods. “There’s disappointment because when you set out at the start of the League, the one thing you don’t want is relegation,” O’Donnell told Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub after Sunday’s defeat to Division 1 winners Kilcar.“The boys have been in Division 1 for three seasons now. Last season was very good and we finished on 18 points and beat the teams that we had to. That didn’t happen this year.”However, O’Donnell has backed Milford to hit back.He said: “They never put the heads down and never gave up. We just didn’t win the games during the summer that we had to when the squad was weak. Had we our full squad, I’d be very confident that we’d have survived. “The future for the club is right and if they have the hunger for it, they’ll bounce straight back.”Listen to the full interview below …Listen: Danny O’Donnell says Milford will bounce back from relegation was last modified: August 28th, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare 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:2019 All-County Football League2019 Donegal SFCDanny O’DonnellMilford

Elsewhere, Barrie McKay has been speaking about his future at Rangers and whether he feels he is ready to make the move down south. Meanwhile, Manchester United are plotting an astonishing £70m swoop for Monaco and Portugal playmaker Bernardo Silva. Will they partner him with Antoine Griezmann? It’s all in today’s Transfer Talk. Robbie Neilson is set to raid former club Hearts with a move for striker Robbie Muirhead, with the 20-year-old close to joining MK Dons.Muirhead will link up with his former manager in English League One as Neilson builds his team at MK Dons, with The Scottish Sun reporting the move could be completed as early as Thursday.In other transfer news, Souleymane Coulibaly has impressed a lot of people this season, including some from Egypt it would seem.The Kilmarnock striker was reportedly the subject of a bid from Zamalek, although Lee Clark was quick to clarify no offer has been received for the Ivorian.
The Kilmacrennan Community Development Group are advancing their ambitious development of a new community facility by launching a major fundraising draw – with a top-prize of a six-night trip to Dubai – next week.The development is to incorporate a sports complex housing a full-size soccer pitch, a basketball court, tennis court and the facility, located on a 15-acre site just outside Kilmacrennan village, will also include a community playground.On the site, work on the entry road, a car park, stone work and site work has already begun. Until now, the entire project has been self-funded. In 2015, a country music festival in Kilmacrennan raised over €10,000 for the fund, while the steering group have also benefitted from the Gartan Adventure Race and allocation from Donegal County Council’s Strategic Development Fund. Local County Councillor John O’Donnell is a member of the group.“We are now launching it to the public as we want to try and get people to row in behind so we can form an official committee,” he said.“Kilmacrennan is in bad need of a development like thus. There is neither a playground nor a pitch in Kilmacrennan.“We have already done a lot of work. We managed to secure the site on a long-term lease with the option to buy. We got planning permission and we’ve applied for a Sports Capital grant. We’re also currently applying for LEADER funding so all is gingery good so far. “The whole thing has been self-funded until now. We want to push the tickets to gather money so we can have matching funding. We’ve done all this work already without reaching out to the community. We have no debt or liability which is great.”Kilmacrennan Celtic’s senior teams have not been able to use Lurgy Park in recent years as it is not deemed the correct size to play adult matches on. The teams have been playing at venues such as Letterkenny Community Centre and Errigal College since then.The launch of the draw takes place on Friday-week, June 30, in Kilmacrennan National School at 8pm.The top prize is an a holiday to Dubai, sponsored by the McGettigan Hotal Group. The prize includes flights and accommodation in the Bonnington Jumeirah Hotel.The second prize is €500 sponsored by McTaggart Insulation; third prize is a €500 oil voucher sponsored by DS Environmental Services; fourth prize is a two-night B&B trip to the Great Northern in Bundoran; fifth prize is a two-night B&B trip to Castle Dragan, Sligo; sixth prize is a pair of tickets for a Republic of Ireland international; seventh prize is four green fees for Galway Bay Golf Club; eighth prize is a €100 voucher for Wet & Wild; ninth prize is a meal for two at Dillon’s Hotel; and tenth prize is a meal for two at the Lagoon, Termon. Tickets cost €10 or three for €20 and the draw takes place on December 30th.Major fundraiser to be launched in aid of ambitious community development in Kilmacrennan was last modified: June 20th, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare 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:Councillor John O’DonnellkilmacrennanKIlmacrennan Celtic

Porzingis finished with 29 points on 28 shots, and Enes Kanter added 22 points and 16 rebounds.“We weren’t able to get going downhill all night,” Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said. “We only got six free throws, so there wasn’t a lot of penetration and we took a lot of outside shots.”The Pistons pulled down four offensive rebounds in the first two minutes on their way to a 12-2 lead. Drummond had six points and six rebounds early, but the Knicks got back into the game when he went to the bench with two fouls.Drummond was limited to seven minutes in the half, but the Pistons still led 52-44 at intermission. Harris and Anthony Tolliver each scored 10 points, while Porzingis had 10 points and six rebounds for the Knicks.Kanter’s follow shot gave the Knicks a 69-68 lead with three minutes left in the third, and he followed with another on the next possession. New York finished with an 18-2 run to move the margin to 75-70, but the Pistons scored the quarter’s final four points to get within one.“We really have to work on our third-quarter defense, because this is three games in a row where it has gotten us into trouble,” Van Gundy said. “It’s really the whole second half, but especially the third quarter.”Detroit kept that surge going in the fourth, starting the period with a 10-4 run to lead 84-79 with 10:03 to play.The Knicks tied the game with 3:45 left when Drummond was called for goaltending, and Porzingis followed with a mid-range jumper to put New York ahead 95-93.

We have included below some recent commentary from a variety of Apple software and hardware engineers that speaks to pressure and other workplace factors they have been up against to remain highly competitive in today’s tech environment. Over and over we find that one of the most common complaints about working at Apple are the long hours and the challenge to maintain work/life balance. Here are some noteworthy examples of engineer gripes about working at Apple: Just this past week a Senior Software Engineer in Cupertino commented that Apple is a huge disappointment. “Working 7 days a week makes people’s total output go DOWN. Set the right weekly milestones and have people go home and recharge on the weekends. They will get MORE done every week.” “Great company but long hours,” –Senior Hardware engineer Another Software Engineer suggests to senior management: “Value your employees more, try to keep them from getting burned out. They are not always replaceable.” “Many departments, and their VP’s, directors, and managers have unrealistic expectations of their employees. Particularly on the hardware engineering side of Infinite Loop (buildings 5 and 6), people get driven very hard and are regularly expected to work weekends.” Software Engineer IV “Apple is very secretive. It can be difficult to know what’s going on ahead of time, and then all of the sudden, you need to shift and adapt. Schedules are very rough and change a lot. Releases, and crunch-time seems omni-present. It can be overwhelming.” – Senior Software EngineerWill Steve Job’s re-entry into Apple full time reinvigorate the engineers from possible burn out? Or will life at Apple continue to be full throttle? Stay tuned as we track engineer sentiment, Steve Job’s approval rating and Apple’s company satisfaction score. Excitement surrounding a possible Steve Jobs appearance at the World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco comes as no surprise given that he is among the top five highest rated CEOs on Glassdoor with an approval rating at 91%.

MHTF is supporting their project, Working on Integration Issues of HIV/AIDS and Maternal Health. More information on MHTF supported projects can be found here.Written by: CEDPACEDPA with the support of MHTF started an initiative to advocate for integration of HIV and Maternal Health programs and policies at the state (Rajasthan) and India. The specific objectives are to review and compile strategic information on integrated programs and policies. By building consensus through consultation at state and national level among policy makers, recommendations on strategies will be developed to address and advocate the issues of integration on HIV and maternal health. We are conducting a desk review of information on integrated programs and policies highlighting replicable lessons related to services and convergence. CEDPA proposes to review evidence and collate and document information on programs and policies which will include gaps, needs and best practices to further improve services and efficiency with regards to integration of HIV and Maternal Health. This document will include global level policy commitments and guidance towards integration, systematic review of evidence on integration, lessons from India and the global context, and evidence from ongoing programs on convergence of MH-HIV in India. For documenting best practices and case studies on the integration issues, we have shared the matrix with different forums and organizations like Solution exchange, Eldis community and Saathii network (Solidarity and Action Against The HIV Infection in India).In our quest for finding linkages and integration, we participated in a meeting of about 30 individuals on November 2, 2010 at Delhi. This meeting was organized by Impact to get feedback and input for a comprehensive policy that would be helpful in designing and implementing a minimum support package of schemes and services for women living with HIV and children affected by HIV in the state of Rajasthan. Many people from NGOs, multilaterals, UN agencies, government and the private sector participated in the consultation meeting. CEDPA too participated, since we are in the process of collating, documenting and analysis of information on programs and policies with regards to integration of HIV and Maternal Health in India and specifically in Rajasthan. This initiative is being supported by UNIFEM. Various consultations have been undertaken with local partners at villages, district and state level to gather inputs to draft a policy. This draft policy is to be submitted to Government of Rajasthan in December 2010.The draft document shared at this meeting highlighted the need to integrate and converge with various other schemes and services which thereby will strengthen the existing service delivery networks of people living with HIV. Further to this discussion, it was felt that there should be service integration of maternal health and HIV including activities to bring about behavioral and social change. Other topics of inclusion in the policy draft were on mental health issues and financial implication of actions undertaken. It was decided to relook at the mentioned aspects and develop a comprehensive policy. We hope to be involved in this process and create linkages with our current work on advocating for integration of HIV and Maternal Health programs and policies.Share this:
