US radio hosts sing Donegal’s praises to 16 million listeners

first_imgPresenters from six of America’s most popular radio stations have been visiting Donegal and the Wild Atlantic Way on an action-packed programme to promote tourism. The hosts, who are guests of Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland, have a combined audience of some 16 million listeners.That huge audience – or potential US holidaymakers for Ireland – have been keeping up with the radio presenters’ travels here via social media. The radio presenters’ adventurous programme included a tour of Donegal Castle, a guided walk at Slieve League with Paddy Clarke, as well as a visit to the Glencolmcille Folk Village. They stayed in Lough Eske Castle.Each of the presenters has been conducting interviews throughout the visit with local tourism operators and personalities. The various interviews will air to some 16 million Americans later this month.Tour guide Barbara Hunter (left), with US radio presenters, during their fact-finding visit to Ireland.Alison Metcalfe, Tourism Ireland’s Head of North America and Australia, said: “We were delighted to invite these radio presenters to visit Donegal and Ireland. Their interviews will be heard by around 16 million people across the US – helping us to spread the word among American travellers about the many things to see and do on a vacation in Ireland. Visits like this are an invaluable part of Tourism Ireland’s overall promotional programme, delivering positive exposure for Donegal and Ireland through the American media.“Tourism Ireland has prioritised North America as a market which offers a strong return on investment, in terms of holiday visitors and expenditure. In 2019, Tourism Ireland aims to surpass the record-breaking performance of 2018 and to grow revenue from North American visitors by +8% to €1.99 billion, generated by 2.17 million visitors.” US radio hosts sing Donegal’s praises to 16 million listeners was last modified: April 8th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:Failte IrelandtourismWild Atlantic Waylast_img read more

How the Dragon Got Its Beard

first_img(Visited 31 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Scales are not feathers are not hair, but evolutionary tales get hairy sometimes.It’s evolutionary storytelling time in Geneva, where Darwinians conjure up bearded dragons evolving into bearded men. It all started when two researchers from Switzerland found thickenings in crocodile skin, then had visions of birds taking off into the trees, with mammals scampering in the underbrush. The tale is told on Science Daily, “Hairs, feathers and scales have a lot in common.” More recondite jargon is supplied in Science Advances to satisfy the academics.But of course hairs, feathers and scales have some things in common, being composed of keratin, but don’t the differences swamp the similarities? Not to these evolutionists. To understand their thinking, we have to learn a new word: placode. Wikipedia defines it as: “A neurogenic placode is an area of thickening of the epithelium in the embryonic head ectoderm layer that gives rise to neurons and other structures of the sensory nervous system. Placodes are embryonic structures that give rise to structures such as hair follicles, feathers and teeth.”Mammalian hairs and avian feathers develop from a similar primordial structure called a ‘placode’: a local thickening of the epidermis with columnar cells that reduce their rate of proliferation and express very specific genes. This observation has puzzled evolutionary and developmental biologists for many years because birds and mammals are not sister groups: they evolved from different reptilian lineages. According to previous studies, reptiles’ scales however do not develop from an anatomical placode. This would imply that birds and mammals have independently ‘invented’ placodes during their evolution.The story ramps up the tension, heading toward the resolution: lo and behold, the Swiss researchers find evidence for placodes in reptiles. They examine eggs of crocodiles, corn snakes and bearded dragons (a kind of lizard) and found local thickenings of the epidermis—at least briefly during development. Common ancestry is saved!Jump to the Methods section in the paper. One notices that they did not do any work on birds or mammals: just on 3 species of reptiles, and there, only on their eggs. Environmentalists will be relieved to hear that no animals were harmed in the process: “Maintenance of and experiments on reptilians were approved by the Geneva Canton ethical regulation authority (authorization GE/82/14) and performed according to Swiss law.”The researchers scraped some scale protein, took photos, and studied DNA sequences from these reptile eggs. That’s about it. No feathers or hairs were found on the reptiles, but they found a gene that disrupts scale formation in bearded dragons, just like it disrupts beards in humans. If disrupting a gene can’t allow a placode to form for a dragon beard scale, or a placode for a hairy human beard, that must prove Darwin right. “These data all coherently indicate the common ancestry between scales, feathers and hairs.”Here’s how the story came out for the press: “The single evolutionary origin of placodes revealed.”Today, Nicolas Di-Poï and Michel C. Milinkovitch at the Department of Genetics and Evolution of the UNIGE Faculty of Science and at the SIB put this long controversy to rest by demonstrating that scales in reptiles develop from a placode with all the anatomical and molecular signatures of avian and mammalian placodes. The two scientists finely observed and analysed the skin morphological and molecular characteristics during embryonic development in crocodiles, snakes and lizards. ‘Our study not only provides new molecular data that complement the work of the American team but also reveals key microanatomical facts, explains Michel Milinkovitch. Indeed, we have identified in reptiles new molecular signatures that are identical to those observed during the development of hairs and feathers, as well as the presence of the same anatomical placode as in mammals and birds. This indicates that the three types of skin appendages are homologous: the reptilian scales, the avian feathers and the mammalian hairs, despite their very different final shapes, evolved from the scales of their reptilian common ancestor.’They need to fine-tune the story a little; just a little mop-up work, that’s about it. All in a day’s work for Darwin storytellers.The next challenge for the Swiss team, and many other researchers around the world, is to decipher the fine mechanisms explaining the diversity of forms of skin appendages. How has the ancestral scaly skin given rise to the very different morphologies of scales, feathers and hairs, as well as the astonishing variety of forms that these appendages can take? These future studies will hopefully fine-tune our understanding of the physical and molecular mechanisms generating the complexity and the diversity of life during evolution.A bird-of-paradise’s plumage or a fashion model’s coiffure couldn’t be far behind. Just give those epidermal thickenings a few million years.The evolutionists in Geneva might want to see how the evolutionists in Australia are doing. They’re trying to figure out if snakes evolved in the sea or on the land. PhysOrg shows a fossil Tetrapodophis, a very long slender lizard with tiny limbs that appears adapted for aquatic life. But the provenance of this fossil is “highly problematic.” Scientists are concerned that the “reproducibility crisis” will taint the reputation of this fossil and claims built on it.Meanwhile, snake enthusiasts (or snake-o-phobes) may wish to learn a little more about rattlesnakes from Simon Worrall of National Geographic, who intereviewed herpetologist Ted Levin about them; “far from being scary monsters, these elusive predators are surprisingly social,” he says. The venomous beasts may actually reduce Lyme Disease in humans by cutting down on their mammal vectors—chipmunks and mice. As for the snakes themselves, “They are fascinating and gorgeous to look at,” Levin says. From a distance, of course. “They can see colors we can’t see and read the world with the tips of their tongues. They communicate through pheromones, in a language we don’t really understand. The more you look into them, the more fascinating they are.”Update 6/28/16: Remains of bird wing feathers have been found in Burmese amber. National Geographic has a picture; says the feathers look just like modern feathers, even though they are claimed to be 100 million years old.Levin takes a swipe at Genesis when asked about why we fear snakes:It’s not just rattlesnakes. I think we fear all snakes. Until I began to research this book in earnest, I thought it all went back to the Book of Genesis, the Judeo-Christian story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. But now I realize that that story goes way back to the dawn of primates, when venomous snakes were their principle predators. I think we carry that with us, like the fear of the dark.Thus he trades one miracle story for another. He can’t accept a talking snake in Genesis, which neither Adam or Eve feared at the time, and if they learned to fear snakes later, could not have invented a mutation to pass on that fear. So instead, he believes that some mutation in a mouse in the Jurassic keeps modern humans afraid of snakes, like a fear of the dark, that we haven’t been able to shake in 200 million years while growing larger and smarter than snakes. Go figure.The Swiss evolutionists think they are doing their job by weaving stories from “physical and molecular mechanisms.” They think that tiny, evanescent thickenings in the epidermis of a crocodile egg led to the luscious locks of the Breck Girl. They think that switching off one gene in a bearded dragon proves the evolution of Grizzly Adams’s beard. See? Everyone believes in miracles. And the evolutionists believe in the supernatural, too. They believe that logical and moral truths emerge from physical and molecular mechanisms. That’s the only way they could write scientific papers purporting to express truth. Unless truth is supernatural, eternal and changeless (i.e., it doesn’t evolve), they could never know that—or anything.last_img read more

Old Mutual makes Fortune 500

first_img14 July 2005Financial services group Old Mutual has joined Anglo American and BHP Billiton as South African-based companies which have made it into the top 300 global firms on the prestigious Fortune 500 list, Business Day reports.The Fortune Global 500, to be released by Fortune magazine later in July, puts Old Mutual at position 278, up from 304 the previous year.Fortune measures companies by their revenue rather than market capitalisation, the newspaper reports. Old Mutual’s revenue grew by 22% to US$20.9-billion in 2004. The average revenue growth for the top 500 companies was 13%.Despite a few slow years after it listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1998, Business Day reports, Old Mutual’s growth has taken off in the past couple of years largely because of a turnaround in fortunes at its US asset management and insurance business.“We have performed well in all our key geographical areas and we look forward to more of the same in the years to come,” Old Mutual CEO Jim Sutcliffe told Business Day.Last year, Old Mutual’s US life business increased its contribution to about half of total new life business at the group. Nearly three-quarters of its asset management clients are now in the US and UK.The inclusion of Anglo American, BHP Billiton and Old Mutual on the list shows that multinational South African companies have used their global presence to boost revenue, according to the newspaper.Anglo American moved up from 275 to 213 on Fortune’s list, while BHP Billiton increased revenue 47% in 2004 to move up 100 places to 241, Business Day reports. Mittal Steel enters the Global 500 for the first time at 253, thanks to record steel prices. Surprisingly, brewing giant SABMiller is not included on the list of the 500 biggest companies.SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

The festival ran from 20 to 24 September, in Polokwane, Limpopo.Heritage Day, an annual national public holiday, is observed on 24 September. South Africa expands activities throughout the month of September, which has become known as Heritage Month.The festival was hosted in partnership with the City of Polokwane and the Limpopo department of sport, arts and culture, as well as the national Department of Traditional Affairs.The theme of the occasion was translated as “Our indigenous sport, our heritage: towards the identification, promotion and preservation of South African’s very own sporting codes and heritage”. The mantra “My games, My roots, My future” became the hashtag on social media for the festival, which featured nine sporting codes.Festival aimsAccording to Sports and Recreation, the initiative was a platform for the country’s diverse citizens to reflect on the games’ rich history and their influence on shaping the daily and future interactions of culture. “This is a rich, measurable offering responsive to driving the National Development Plan’s vision of 2030 of driving social cohesion and nation-building through sporting platforms which drive active citizenry participation in sporting codes whose origins are rooted in South African’s rich history, heritage and culture,” said Minister Fikile Mbalula.Watch Mbalula talk about the importance of indigenous games:A gala dinner was held on 20 September and the games were opened on 21 September.The colourful opening was tweeted:#IndigenousGames2015 RT @MbalulaFikile: The streets of Seshego are colorful today #MyGamesMyRootsMyFuture pic.twitter.com/3d7yUB8I1I— Moreku Aphane IG: (@Iam_matome) September 20, 2015Today, in Limpopo we Open the Indigenous Games – pic.twitter.com/ghAejndM0h— RSA Min of Sport (@MbalulaFikile) September 20, 2015Exec.

Mayor: Freedom was fought, not to destroy us but to bring us together & these games embody that spirit. #MyGamesMyRootsMyfuture— Dep. Sport & Rec (@SPORTandREC_RSA) September 19, 2015The nine sporting codes at the festival were:DikebeDikebe is a kick-and-run ball game pitting two teams of 12 players each against each other. Each team must have an equal representation of male and female players. Also required is a scorekeeper from each team to count team and individual player runs during the game.The teams take turns to attack and defend. A player from the defending team is deployed in a central role as a roller of the ball and players from the attacking team take turns as kickers as and when they are called out by the roller to do so.Kho-KhoTwo teams of nine players each compete in this running game. The two teams take turns to be runners or chasers. When the game starts, a player from the running team is nominated as the runner and one from the chasing team is selected to chase.MorabarabaMorabaraba is a board game played with two players, each with 12 tokens, also known as “cows”. To distinguish between the opposing players, the tokens must be of different shape or colour.Three squares are drawn on the board inside each other, such that there is an outer square, a middle square and an inner, smallest square. The squares are subdivided into 24 equidistant junctions with straight lines.IintongaTwo sticks are used in this stick-fighting game. A longer stick is used for attacking and a short stick is used for defending. Children can start playing this game from the age of five, upwards.NcuvaNcuva is a board game played by teams of one to six players a side per game. Four rows of four holes each are dug on flat ground or sculpted on to the board to make a total of 16 holes. A line divides the board into two rows of eight holes each.To play, each player uses 32 “cows”, or tokens, made of marula fruit kernels or small stones. The stones are placed in sets of four in the holes for the game to start. Ncuva is one of the nine sporting codes played at the 10th annual Indigenous Games Festival, running from 20 to 24 September 2015. (Image: Screengrab via YouTube)JukskeiThis is a target game played by two teams of four each; each team has a leader. The players use skeets made of rubber, wood or other material of between 300mm and 460mm in length, weighing no more than 1.8kg for seniors and 1.1kg for juniors.The aim of the game is to score points by using the skeets to hit targets placed on the field.DiketoDiketo tests one’s hand-eye co-ordination. The game is played with 10 small stones or marbles placed in a round hole, about 5cm deep, and one hand-held ghoen or bigger stone. The game can be played by both girls and boys of any age. Only two players can compete at a time.Drie StokkiesA running and jumping game, drie stokkies pits two teams of five players each against each other. Three sticks are placed on the ground approximately 1m apart. Competing players line up to run and jump over the sticks, stepping only once between the sticks. Participants have to test their running pace and long jump abilities when they take part in drie stokkies. (Image: Screengrab via YouTube)KgatiKgati is a skipping rope game wherein several girls can skip the rope simultaneously or one at a time. The skipping rope should not be longer than 5m. Two players swing the rope while the other players take turns to skip.Other activities at the festival included kraal school debates, traditional council court, and cultural exhibitions.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Don’t Let This Happen to You

first_imgDoor design detailsThe photo at right is from an entry that’s just 15 years old. Fortunately, it was able to be repaired. I haven’t always been so lucky. Let’s just say that replacing subfloor and framing is no fun. A safe assumption is that, for one reason or another, doors always leak. They shouldn’t, but they do. Seals wear out. Wind blows. Jambs rot. Sills crack. Weepholes clog. Following are some ways to mitigate the chance of damage.Always use a sill pan. I used to make my own out of lead, a practice (and a material) I would not recommend. Then I used custom-soldered copper pans, but only on the most exposed locations, due to cost. Less-exposed locations received pans made from bituminous membrane. It is imperative that the corners are sealed, which is hard to do. Simply adhering the membrane to the subfloor without creating sealed, upturned corners only relocates the water. Now it’s easy: I specify one of the ready-made sill pans. It is important, however, to seal the sill pan to the subfloor and the door sill to the pan to prevent air leakage and flexing of the door sill.Choose the right sill type. When it’s important to be historically correct, I call for real wood sills, protected with epoxy paint or a penetrating sealer such as Penofin or Sikkens. Otherwise I prefer adjustable aluminum or fiberglass sills. They are usually available in brown or tan, if mill finished aluminum is not desired. Turning a few screws is enough to snug the sill against the door to stop water and air from getting through. Where the side jamb meets the sill there is usually a big dollop of butyl caulking. Don’t cut it away the way I did as a novice carpenter—it is necessary for sealing the transition between components. I like to order doors with “long horns” on the sills, meaning that the sill extends to the outside edge of the casing instead of the inside edge, where a vulnerable corner is susceptible to moisture. It takes more care to work with and is usually a special order, but I’ve repaired enough doors to consider it a worthwhile detail.Use rot-proof jambs. An added benefit to an adjustable sill’s air-sealing capability is the fact that it’s rot-proof. Rot usually starts at the bottom of the jambs. The end grain wicks water and rots the wood from the inside out. It shows up as paint failure after it’s too late to fix. This can be minimized by priming all sides of the jamb and leaving the caulking at the sill joint. Some manufacturers offer an even better alternative: rot-proof lower jambs. While as a rule I don’t consider pvc or composites to be green, this is one case where it solves a real problem.Storm doors are often discouraged because excessive heat buildup can damage the doors they are meant to protect, and if you live in a warm climate, you wouldn’t want them anyway. Anywhere that’s cold part of the year, though, I would still like to use them. They are a first line of defense, the same way siding takes the brunt of the weather but has housewrap behind it. Plus, in warm weather the storm panel can be swapped out for a screen panel, allowing for natural ventilation.Overhangs should protect every door. I know it’s not always possible, but a porch roof or some other form of protection is a good goal. Not only does an overhang keep rain from hitting the door on its way down, it also minimizes damaging splashback. An overhang also keeps the summer sun from baking south-facing doors. My favorite reason for overhangs: They offer a protected location to ease the transition between indoors and out.last_img read more

This New Augmented Reality Film Uses a Magazine Cover for a Screen

first_imgAugmented Reality is becoming more common on film sets and productions, and now it has joined forces with traditional print publishing.Cover image via W Magazine.W magazine has collaborated with filmmaker Steven Klein, The Mill, and Katy Perry to bring an augmented reality experience to the cover of its September 2017 issue. This unique AR experience allows viewers to see the depths of AR content and a glimpse of where it could be heading. Users can simply download an iOS or Android app and use it to scan the magazine’s AR cover to reveal a series of short films, interactive features, and AR-enhanced fashion portfolios.As filmmakers, we have all seen the growth of augmented reality in our field. This application is proof of the growing concept and its ability to marry print, video, and other media. Steven Klein lensed the cover, and he worked as director to craft this AR experience.After users scan the page with the app, the AR experience begins with a video and an audio message from Perry. As you thumb through the magazine, you find many other areas that you can scan to unlock additional AR content. By scanning these images and pages marked with an AR-activated W icon, you experience beautifully crafted visuals; films; and a panoramic, 360-degree view of the shoot’s set all by simply scanning the magazine.Here’s what filmmaker Steven Klein had to say about bringing film and print together in this arrangement.We perceive magazines as flat planes of expression. Photographic and print materials as static, firmly held in place by the laws of time and space. But now, through new technology, we have broken those laws and can render a picture as a living entity, as in the case of my W magazine cover story with musical artist Katy Perry. Like Alice looking through the looking glass, you are invited, through the use of an app, to step into the wonderland we have created with the technical assistance of The Mill.Creating this cinematic and colorful world was no easy task. With help from The Mill, Klein brought his vision to the screen and pushed the limits of what was possible. Angus Kneale, The Mill’s chief creative officer, had the following to say:With this collaboration with W magazine, we wanted to push the boundaries of what’s possible in print, while unlocking a new kind of viewing experience through augmented reality. This is an incredibly exciting time to be at the forefront of emerging technology and digital storytelling, and we’re looking forward to further exploring how it can complement and expand the print medium.Augmented reality content is poised to be the future of the filmmaking process as more and more media come together to create new experiences for hungry audiences. We can all expect to see more work like this in the very near future.Interested in bringing augmented reality to your own project? Check out this article to find out how.last_img read more

Price Is An Expression of Value

first_imgPrice isn’t value. But price is an expression of value.When your prospective client tells you that your price is too, what they are saying is that they don’t perceive enough value to pay that price. So the question you have to answer is “Do you sharpen your pencil or do you sharpen your value?”Sharpening your pencil reduces the perception of value; it’s an admission that you aren’t creating enough value to command that price. Sharpening your value increases the perception of value (and sometimes, believe it or not, you can actually improve your value by raising your price).Even though there is nothing you can do about your competitor’s price, often times that is what your price is being measured against. If you can’t justify what you do different and how that makes a measurable difference for your prospective client, then you can’t expect to command a higher price.You need to understand your prospect’s perception of value.You need to ask your prospect how are they assessing value. You need to uncover what they need to see that would increase their perception of value?Price is an expression of value. Your prospect is objecting to your price. But the way you overcome that objection is to treat it like they are objecting to the value you are proposing.The Other SideIf no one ever objects to your price, then there isn’t any question that you are creating a perception of value. Instead, the question is whether or not you are capturing enough of the value you create.If no one every pushes back on your price then it’s likely you aren’t charging enough.QuestionsIs price really the objection? Or is the perception of value too low?How do you understand your prospect’s perception of value?How do you change your prospect’s perception of value? Get the Free eBook!
