Visitors from International Appalachian Trail take a hike in Donegal

first_imgU.S and Canadian walkers were given a taste of one of Donegal’s best walks during a recent visit to the local section of the International Appalachian Trail.Twenty walkers from the International Appalachian Trail and Northern Ireland enjoyed a hike at Leghowney (near Donegal Town) earlier this month.DLDC’s Inga Bock, Rural Recreational Officer and organiser of the International Appalachian Trail was delighted to welcome the delegates. The walk stretched from Kelly’s Bridge, Killeter to Leghowney Hall, with local walkers coming out to welcome the international visitors to the area. It was the end of a five day visit to Ireland North and South, discussing walking trails in the community and the knock on benefits economically to a region. The 5 day forum included walks along parts of the International Appalachian Trail on the island of Ireland, group discussions, presentations, local food and plenty of laughs.The International Appalachian Trail is the longest hiking trail in the world today. It is a long-distance walking trail that extends beyond borders to all geographic regions once connected by the Appalachian-Caledonian mountain terrain, formed more than 250 million years ago. Donegal was officially added to Appalachian Trail maps in 2010. “DLDC would like to thank everyone who took part and give a big Bualadh Bós to everyone including Regional Recreation Officer Inga Bock and James Mc Crudden National Chairman of Country Markets Ltd Association and Leghowney Country Market on organising such a successful international event,” a spokesperson said.“Thanks to everyone from the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, Appalachian Mountain Club, Maine Chapter of the IAT, IATNL, Tourism Ireland, Failte Ireland, Mountaineering Ireland, International Appalachian Trail of Ireland and all of the others who joined the event. Thanks also to Mark Flagler of Flagler Films who gave us permission to use his footage of the event.” This would not have been possible without the financial support of funders including: DLDC, Derry City & Strabane District Council, Mid & East Antrim Council and The Ulster Federation of Rambling ClubsVisitors from International Appalachian Trail take a hike in Donegal was last modified: June 29th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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:International Appalachian Traillast_img read more

Arty milk cans raise cash for kids

first_img7 June 2004An art campaign sponsored by Clover has raised R150 400 for the Peninsula School Feeding Association (PSFA) to assist them with feeding over 86 000 children per day.Sixteen milk cans, transformed into works of art by well-known local artists, including two cans decorated with the paintings of Western Cape school children, were auctioned off at the Association for Visual Arts (AVA) Gallery in Cape Town on 26 May.Contributing artists were Beezy Bailey, Cecil Skotnes, Willie Bester, Tyrone Appollis, Francine Scialom Greenblatt, Jill Trappler, Louis Jansen van Vuuren, Selwin Pekeur, Arlene Amaler-Raviv, Kevin Brand, Mark O’Donovan and Paul du Toit.In addition, craft collective Hand and beader Khoni Mdludli each decorated a can using colourful beads and intricately beaded wire.Two of the cans featured collages made up of reproductions of drawings by children from 80 Western Cape primary schools where Clover ran a children’s art competition.The artistically re-worked aluminium milk cans, on display at the AVA Gallery in the lead-up to the auction, attracted much attention, due both to their novelty and to their artistic value.PFSA fundraiser Rosemary Kahn said all 16 milk cans were sold, with Clover buying six. “The turnout was excellent, with people spilling over into the street”, Kahn said. “In addition to the number of companies that attended, we also had several private buyers and art lovers at the auction.”Companies that attended the auction included Investec, African Nova, Joe Public and FCB Redline.The Peninsula School Feeding Association has been feeding primary school children in the Western Cape for 46 years.Until 1994 this was managed entirely through public funding, and later with the help of a government grant. However, says Kahn, fundraising is essential as more and more children depend on the scheme, which provides many with their only meal of the day.The Association for Visual Arts (AVA) is a non-profit, membership-based arts association which promotes visual arts and artists, and seeks to uplift disadvantaged art communities.The AVA’s Artreach programme assists emerging artists with materials, workshops, framing and sponsored exhibitions in its special gallery space, the Artstrip.Source: Clover SAlast_img read more

Chiefs hold Man United to a draw

first_img21 July 2008Manchester United had to be satisfied with a come-from-behind 1-1 draw with Kaizer Chiefs in the opening match of the Vodacom Challenge in front of a capacity crowd at Newlands in Cape Town on Saturday.It was a pre-season outing for both clubs and Chiefs will, no doubt, be more satisfied with the outcome than the English Premier League and European Champions League title-holders.The Amakhosi, rather than being overawed by their illustrious opposition, clearly saw the match as an opportunity to make a name for themselves, rather than a game from which they hoped to emerge with a draw. Yes, it did end in a draw, but it was not a defensive effort from Chiefs, who took the game to the Red Devils.First shotThe South African team was the first to have a crack at goal through David Mathebula, but his shot from distance was safely dealt with by United goalkeeper Tomasz Kusczak.Siphiwe Tshabalala had a half-chance only a minute later, but his slight hesitation before shooting gave United’s defenders time to block his shot.Wayne Rooney, whose hair-trigger temperament was unfortunately on display, had an opportunity after 10 minutes with a free kick, but his show flew harmlessly over the crossbar.Chris Eagles had a shot blocked by defender Tinashe Nengomashe before Tevez came close with the head. Captain Gary Neville then picked out the Argentine striker on the near post, but his header passed narrowly wide of the goals.PenaltyWith 37 minutes played, Chiefs were awarded a penalty when Neville fouled Siphiwe Tshabalala as he burst onto the ball and into the area at an angle. Jonathan Quartey took the spot kick and easily beat Kusczak by sending him the wrong way.The Amakhosi took that 1-0 lead into the break.Tevez was again wide with a header after six minutes of the second half and two minutes later the Red Devils very nearly had the game taken out of their reach.A half-cleared ball inside United’s fell to new Chiefs’ striker Jose Torrealba, but he rushed his shot and failed to connect properly. The ball hit Wes Brown and passed off of the defender to Kusczak’s right and wide of the post.EqualiserThe English champions finally drew level on the hour mark. A deep cross by Tevez found Chris Eagles at the back post and his powerful header skipped off the back of Jimmy Tau’s head and into the back of the net.Rooney was replaced when he picked up a yellow card for a late challenge on Nengomashe. Earlier in the match he had lashed out at Onismor Bashera, but the referee had missed the incident. United manager Sir Alex Ferguson had seen enough, however, and replaced the star striker.Despite falling behind, Chiefs were not about to try and play out for a draw and Gert Schalkwyk was just off target after Bhasera found him with a good cross.Ultimately, however, both teams had to be satisfied with a draw.Praise for KhuneAfter the match, Ferguson said Chiefs had performed well and he singled out Amakhosi goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune for praise, saying he was especially impressed by the 21-year-old’s distribution, which often put his team onto the counter-attack.Kaizer Chiefs’ coach Muhsin Ertugral said he was pleased with the commitment shown by his players, but said he is still working on combinations. He said the performance augers well for the new season. Last season, Chiefs finished a sixth in the PSL.The side’s new captain Jimmy Tau felt his team had learnt a lot and said he was proud of the way they played.Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Euro 2016: Germany call up defender Tah to replace injured Ruediger

first_imgGermany coach Joachim Loew has called up Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah to replace the injured Antonio Ruediger at the European Championship.The 20-year-old Tah, who made his only Germany appearance on March 26 in the 3-2 friendly loss to England in Berlin, was not included in Loew’s preliminary list of 27 players for the tournament in France, but he was given the nod Wednesday after Ruediger tore a cruciate ligament in his right knee in training on Tuesday.Tah, who played 29 league games for Leverkusen in his breakthrough season, missed the side’s last games because of food poisoning.”I sent Jonathan an SMS and wished him luck,” Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voeller told the Koelner Express newspaper. (Full Euro 2016 coverage )The 23-year-old Ruediger is expected to miss about six months after sustaining the injury in a tussle with Thomas Mueller. The Roma defender had been first choice to fill in for Mats Hummels, who has been struggling with a calf injury and is unlikely to feature in any of the group games.Only 15 outfield players took part in team training Wednesday at the Camille Fournier Stadium in Evian-les-Bains, along with the three goalkeepers.Loew said Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich has a cold and Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl has a slight muscle strain in his calf. Hummels underwent an individual training program but worked with the ball for the first time.Lukas Podolski, who was excused Tuesday because of the birth of his daughter, was expected back in Evian on Wednesday evening.advertisementGermany opens its campaign against Ukraine in Lille on Sunday. Poland and Northern Ireland are also in Group C.last_img read more

How to Setup and Promote Your First Marketing Webinar

first_imgYou do not need to be a rocket scientist to host a webinar. All you need is a webinar checklist – and here we are to provide it. To unveil all the steps and tips and tricks we’ve learned along the way hosting hundreds of marketing webinars over the last 4 years. First we’ll start with the basics of how to host your first webinar. For the advanced webinar hosts out there, stay tuned for a future post on more advanced tips.Download Now: Free Webinar Planning KitHow to Host Your First Webinar – Part 1: Before the Webinar Stage 1: Prepare 8 weeks before the webinar Choose a Topic – Think about your customers’ problems and questions. These are the same ideas you may brainstorm for blog posts. Choose a Speaker – Choose a presenter who can be a face of the company, someone with expertise and experience presenting (or make sure they practice). Consider also acting as a moderator to handle Q&A and make the webinar more interesting for listeners. Choose a Date – No one date/time works for every company. Think about your target audience’s time zones and choose a time you think will work for them. For example, for webinars for US attendees choose afternoon eastern time / morning pacific time. Choose a Webinar System – For a typical webinar, you likely won’t find a better value than GotoWebinar . It’s inexpensive and easy-to-use and they even have a 30-day free trial so you can test it out for free for your first webinar.GotoWebinar Functionality Overview Broadcast type: Share desktop Audio options: Phone and internet VOIP Interactivity: Polls, Q&A via chat Recording: Records screen and audio, saves WMV file to computer Reporting: View attendee login details, Q&A and poll response details Number of attendees supported: 1,000 Originally published Mar 24, 2011 12:30:00 PM, updated October 14 2019 Topics: Don’t forget to share this post!

Also, reserve a conference room or other quiet room for your event, including 1 hour before your scheduled start time and 30 minutes after the scheduled end. Your room will need, among other things (to be discussed in my next post), a phone and internet connection. 4 weeks before the webinar Create You Webinar Slide Deck – Start with an outline and formulate an agenda. Be sure to use images – you don’t want people to just sit there reading your slides instead of listening to what you have to say. Then make sure to practice your presentation and gauge the right length for the time allotted. Budget time for Q&A as well! You may also want to have pre-webinar slides at the beginning to show while attendees arrive. ( Learn some really advanced presentation tips here. ) Create Your Registration Landing Page – This will allow you to collect registrants as leads for future follow up and set them up to get reminder and follow up emails if you integrate your landing page with a system like GotoWebinar. Be sure to follow the usual landing page best practices . Set Up Your Event with Your Webinar System – The process will be different for whichever system you use; GotoWebinar has a wizard that lets you set up your event. Set up includes scheduling your event, designating presenters who will get a special login to broadcast their audio and screens, and setting up reminder and follow up emails to automatically go to attendees. Practice, Practice, Practice – Practice both your presentation to get comfortable with delivering the content and also the technology to make sure you know how to launch the event. Stage 2: Promote   2 weeks before the webinar Promote via Social Media – Let your social media following know about your webinar. Post an update to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or any other social media site where you are active. Promote to Your Email List – Send a webinar invitation to your house email list or an appropriate segment of your leads and customers. Promote on Your Website/Blog – Add a call to action to your webinar landing page in prominent places on your website, like your homepage. Write a blog article or two relevant to the webinar topic and include a call to action to register for the webinar to learn more. Promote via Free Webinar Listing Sites – There are a number of free sites that let you list webinars, like webinarlistings.com and webinarhero.com . You can also find relevant industry community sites where you can post links to virtual events and webinars. 24 hours before the webinar Remind Your Registrants – Some people will register for your event far in advance and forget that it’s approaching. Be sure to remind them – you can set up a reminder email to send from a system like GotoWebinar – as you near the event, particularly 24 hours before.Now watch the registrants roll in!

How to Create a Wildly Successful Facebook App

first_img Don’t forget to share this post! AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to Email AppEmail AppShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to MessengerMessengerShare to SlackSlack If you haven’t had a lollipop lately, you should try this one. I promise you’ll enjoy it.No, I’m not offering real candy, but I am offering an experience you’ll still find sweet (your teeth can thank me later). Take This Lollipop, a new Facebook application, is a creepy but fascinating interactive video that brings out the spookiness in social media. Launched just two weeks before Halloween, it’s already gained almost 10 million Likes, making it one of the fastest-growing Facebook apps ever.The application, created by Jason Zada (also the creator of the very popular Elf Yourself), took only 30 minutes to script and just four weeks to produce the video. Another amazing fact: no promotion was put behind the app. It just went viral.“It really started as a social experiment — the old adage ‘don’t take candy from strangers’,” said Zada. People did the hard part for me — they convinced each other to try it. You have this lollipop that you know you shouldn’t take, but if your friends tell you to try something that’s potentially really scary, would you do it?”So what are the reasons behind this app’s rapid, viral growth? Here are 6 takeaways from Take This Lollipop and how you can incorporate these characteristics into your campaigns to help them get shared virally:1. Make it an ExperienceThings that go viral are not stale or boring. Oftentimes, they are exciting, educational, entertaining, fun, distinctive, foster strong emotions, or many of these in one. When creating a campaign you hope to go viral, give it a “wow” factor. Most of the time, it’s also best to avoid being too commercialized, meaning the use of over-saturated company branding that takes the life right out of it. Take This Lollipop focuses on the experience. The emotional factor in this case is fear, but it’s also fun and entertaining.2. Make it SimpleWhen something is complicated, people will resist using it or sharing it. Your campaigns need to be simple to understand within seconds, easily digestible and easy to use, touch, or hear. Take This Lollipop is no more complicated than accepting Facebook permissions to watch the video. And the video is short. That’s it. Always think ‘keep it simple stupid.’3. Make it Easily ShareableDon’t create friction with your campaign, which can make it difficult to access or share. Don’t put it behind a pay wall or account registration (in most cases). Even though Take This Lollipop requires granting Facebook access (a requirement for all Facebook applications), it’s still really easy to connect the app with your profile. Also, add social media sharing buttons in visible places so people can share your amazing content!4. Make it UniqueWe like new things, especially if they are unique. If you create a campaign that’s cliché and has been done before, it’s going to make it a lot less exciting. Campaigns that go viral have never been seen before. When creating your campaign, focus on creating something truly original.5. Make it Somewhat ControversialThere’s a lot of debate right now regarding Facebook privacy and the lack of confidentiality in social media. You never know who might be watching and who can see what information about you. Take This Lollipop capitalizes on this controversy by highlighting that exact fear (and plays off of ‘don’t take candy from strangers’) in an interesting way, which is why it has people talking. Zada further explains; “It’s kind of a horror movie that has no blood, no guts, but there’s this person that you don’t want looking at your information. And that to me was the scariest of all.”6. Make it PersonalizedOne reason that Take This Lollipop and Elf Yourself are so popular is due to their personalized experiences. People can upload their own photos or Facebook profile, and as a result, they become part of the experience. This can make a campaign even more engaging. Look for ways to make your campaigns customized or personalized, if possible.Credit: Zada quotes from Mashable Inbound Marketing Originally published Nov 14, 2011 2:00:00 PM, updated July 03 2013 Topics:last_img read more
