first_img Women allowed to play Despite admitted financial constraints, the Institute of Sports (INSPORTS) has affirmed its ideal of supporting sports at the grass-roots level through a $215,000 sponsorship for the upcoming INSPORTS/JTTA National Table Tennis Club League, scheduled to tee off next Thursday. The event was launched at the INSPORTS Board Room, at the National Arena, yesterday. Ian Andrews, executive director of INSPORTS, said he was passionate about seeing the sport return to the “glory days” of the 1950s, which motivated many students during his time as a student and former player at Jamaica College. “As an agency, we are struggling with funds, because funds aren’t easy to come by these days, and sports, unfortunately, sometimes get the bad end of the stick, so to speak. But we decided to dig into our reserves to come up to sponsor this tournament,” he said. “First of all, we have the passion and we know the potential that the sport has,” continued Andrews. There are 15 teams in the current league structure, with matches to be contested on a home-and-away basis in divisions one and two. There is no current women’s league, but women can play in Division Two, and new participants can contact INSPORTS at 906-6389. Jamaica Table Tennis Association president, Godfrey Lothian, who is also an ethics officer at INSPORTS, said: “Today, I am extremely happy because in these difficult times when money is hard to come by, the Institute of Sports has come on board to sponsor this competition, and we want to give them thanks. “INSPORTS is working to ensure that every man, woman and child is involved in sports in this country,” he added. Jamaica’s National Table Tennis Club League was first won in 1998 by the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) in Division One, while Pembroke Hall won the women’s category and Purples of Kingston College took Division Two. Joy Foster, sister of former West Indies cricketer, Maurice Foster, is Jamaica’s long-standing record holder, having won the title at only age eight. Besides the cash injection, INSPORTS also handed over table tennis rackets and balls to the participating clubs.last_img read more

first_imgVICTORIA, B.C. – Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, has provided an update on the measles immunization catch-up program that was launched April 1, 2019.According to the Government, since April 2019, more than 551,000 letters were sent to families with school-aged children, 129 in-school clinics were held, 1,343 clinics were held in the community and 3,807 doses of measles-containing vaccines were administered by health authorities to K-12 students – a 106% increase compared to last April.In April 2019, health authorities’ efforts focused on reviewing all students’ immunization records and informing families and schools. This preparation was necessary to effectively plan the immunization clinics, which focus on students who are under-immunized or unimmunized for measles.- Advertisement -Community pharmacists and primary care providers are key partners in the catch-up program. Pharmacists administered 219 doses of vaccine for measles for children and youth aged five to 19 years in the past month.The Government says efforts will continue through May and June, with 594 in-school clinics, 1,912 regularly scheduled public health clinics and 148 additional community immunization clinics planned at this time. Health authorities will continue to work with schools to notify parents of upcoming measles immunization catch-up clinics and what to expect if their child needs a measles immunization.On March 20, 2019, the Province announced the measles immunization catch-up program to immunize children from kindergarten to Grade 12 who were not previously immunized against measles and for those who may not have received both recommended doses.Advertisement As of May 6, 29 confirmed cases of measles have been reported in 2019 among B.C. residents. These include: nine cases in the Fraser Health region; 10 in the Vancouver Coastal Health region; eight cases in the Island Health region; and two in the Interior Health region.Since the start of January 2019, more than 13,515 doses of measles-containing vaccines were provided to school-aged children. From Jan. 1 to March 31, 2019, there was excellent uptake on the immunizations, with more than seven months of the doses of the vaccine used already.The Government shares the catch-up program is the first step in the government’s two-phase plan to educate people about the importance of immunization and to help them become aware of their immunization status. Offering the measles immunization catch-up program now will also help prepare parents for mandatory reporting of vaccination status, which is planned for fall 2019. Details on the reporting requirement will be announced.For more information; CLICK HEREAdvertisementlast_img read more

High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.  Shortly after the CME impact, a burst of Northern Lights appeared over the US-Canadian border. Shawn Malone photographed the display from the shores of Lake Superior   MAJOR SOLAR FLARE 7/3/12 Big sunspot AR1429 has unleashed another major flare. This one is the strongest yet, an X5-class eruption on March 7th at 00:28 UT. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the extreme UV flash This eruption hurled a bright CME into space, shown here in a movie from the Solar Dynamics Observatory. Although the CME is not squarely Earth-directed, it appears direct enough to deliver a glancing blow to our planet’s magnetic field on March 8-9. This would add to the magnetic unrest already underway at high latitudes. The flare also accelerated energetic protons toward Earth, triggering an S3-class solar radiation storm, in progress. Such a storm is mainly a nuisance to satellites, causing occasional reboots of onboard computers and adding noise to imaging systems. WEATHERShowers forecast for tonight but clearing around midnight. If current weather patterns persist it could be a good night over Co Donegal. NORTHERN LIGHTS ALERT AGAIN – HOPES WEATHER WON’T CLOUD VIEW was last modified: March 7th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:NORTHERN LIGHTS ALERT AGAIN – HOPES WEATHER WON’T CLOUD VIEWlast_img read more

first_imgDonegal GAA legend Declan Bonner believes Celtic could do worse than offer Jim McGuinness the manager’s job if it becomes vacant again.Jim McGuinness after he was appointed by former Celtic boss Neil Lennon.It’s the last thing Donegal fans and McGuinness will want to hear as they prepare for the All-Ireland battle of their lives against Kerry on September 21st.But former All-Ireland winner and minor boss Bonner says Celtic could do a lot worse. He has even discussed the situation with the Glenties man about a possible move to the big job at Parkhead.“They (Celtic) could do a lot worse. I was just chatting to him (Jim) about it. I asked him did he take his A coaching badge.“I don’t think he has. I was surprised saying it was the first thing he could be getting done at this stage. I would be getting them done if I was over there.“This guy Ronnie Delia came in from wherever – stranger things have happened,” said Bonner. But Bonner admits that he has nothing but admiration for McGuinness in not leaving Donegal and hopes he will lead them to another All-Ireland title before any thoughts of his future.“I felt after last year that he possibly could have walked away, himself and a number of players could have walked.“The way they came back, it’s all very well winning one All-Ireland and disappearing after that but he has come back, and won an Ulster title this year,” he added. CELTIC COULD DO WORSE THAN OFFER JIM CELTIC JOB, SAYS BONNER was last modified: September 2nd, 2014 by StephenShare 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:all-irelandCelticDeclan BonnerdonegalJim McGuinnessKerrylast_img read more

first_imgCreating a picture-in-picture effect in Premiere Pro is simple, but understanding the animation fundamentals to pull it off is imperative.  In this post, we dig into animating fixed effects in Adobe Premiere Pro.As we explore the fixed effects in Adobe Premiere Pro we’ll be using a picture-in-picture (PIP) effect for demonstration purposes.  First we’ll explore exactly what ‘fixed effects’ are and then we’ll put this dig through the Premiere Effects Control Panel and put this knowledge into action.  This is fundamental knowledge for ALL Premiere Pro video editors.  Here is the final product of what a PIP effect will look like:Fixed Effects in Premiere ProWhen you select any clip in a Premiere Pro video editing timeline, and go to the ‘Effect Controls’ panel, you have access to what are called the fixed effects for that clip. Unlike more specialized effects, fixed effects are applied to every clip in the timeline.  No matter if it’s a video clip or a PSD file (Photoshop), all elements in your timeline will have fixed effects.Note: the only difference between which fixed effects are available is based on whether the clip has audio or not. If it has audio it will also have audio fixed effects, if not it will only have the video fixed effects.Fixed Effects for a Clip in the Timeline with Audio(Motion Tab ‘Twirled’ down)First, notice the yellow numbers next to some of the properties.  These are the current assigned values for the property.  You can either numerically change these values or hover over the values and scrub.  As shown below, by hovering your mouse over the values and holding down the mouse button, you can change the values (more negative or positive) by pulling left or right with your mouse.Icon Showing the Numbers can be ‘Scrubbed’ to Change Their ValuesPRO TIP: You can scrub faster by holding down the Shift key while scrubbing. For a slower, more nuanced srub down down Control (on a PC) or Command (on a Mac) while scrubbing.Additionally, you can adjust some of these values in the Program Monitor as well.  Scale, rotate or move your clips.  To do this in the program monitor (without having to modify the text) click the word Motion in the Effects Control Panel.  After, you will see the following in your program monitor:Handles and Anchor Point Show When the Word ‘Motion’ is SelectedBy selecting any of the handles on the outer edge of the frame (marked above) you can rescale the clip as needed.  By clicking on the clip in the Program Monitor you can drag with your mouse anywhere in the frame.  Working directly in the Program Monitor may not be as precise as modifying the numerical values, but it is a quick way to eyeball adjustments.Additionally, you can also rotate clips in the Program Monitor.  The same as above, you’ll first need to select Motion in the Effects Control Panel.  Then, hover slightly above and outside of any of the corner handles until you see the following icon.  Click and drag to rotate the clip as you require.Rotate Icon on a Clip in the Program MonitorIn the Effects Control Tab you’ll also see a Anti-Flicker filter.  This is useful when you are working with interlaced footage and you are getting a moire effect in your shot (common when talent is wearing a striped or tightly patterened shirt).  Dial in the flicker filter to blur the video fields to reduce the strobing effect.  Add too much of this effect and you’ll over soften your image – so use with care!Anchor Points in Premiere ProOne effects parameter that can often cause some confusion is the ‘Anchor Point’ of your footage.  This confusion often stems from the fact that it starts at the same number as position.  In fact, anchor point and position are two very different parameters!The anchor point is the place where all the other fixed effects will work from. In other words, if I rotate my clip it will rotate around the anchor point.So, if the anchor point is in the middle of the clip (as it is by default) then it will rotate around the middle of my clip. However, if I were to move my anchor point to the top left of my clip then the clip would rotate around the top left of my clip (as shown below).Rotation Around the Default Central Placement of the Anchor Point(Scale set at 38% for demonstration) Rotation Around a Moved Anchor Point to the Top Left of my Clip(Scale set at 38% for demonstration)It is worth noting that the top left of the clip is actually the 0, 0, point on the X and Y axis. So when you set the anchor point position to something like 720, 540 it tells you that the anchor point of the clip is 720 pixel across from the top left corner of the clip and 540 pixels down from the top left of the clip.If you look at the second screenshot above, you will see that the anchor point is still in the middle of the screen but is also at the top left of the clip! This means that the position of the clip is 720 pixels across and 540 pixels down from the top left of the program monitor while the anchor point is at 0, 0 ( it is locked to the top left hand corner of the clip).  If I now moved the clip’s position to 0, 0, with the anchor point also set to 0,0 it would be locked to the top left hand corner of the program monitor as shown below.Clip Anchor Point at 0, 0 and Clip Position Moved to 0, 0(Scale set at 38% for demonstration)But, if I reset my Anchor Point to its default settings of 720, 540 but keep position at 0, 0 I would get the following effect.Default Anchor Point (720, 540) With Position at 0, 0(Scale set at 38% for demonstration)As you can see, where your anchor point is set will make a big difference as to how your clip will behave. It’s best to experiment with anchor point position to get a handle on the concept, and see how it differs from the position of the clip in the frame.The only other thing to mention at this point is that sometimes you may want to scale an item in a non-uniform way. To turn off Uniform Scale in Premiere just un-check the box in the Effects Controls Panel.  Now, you will be able to scale X (across) and Y (up and down) separately.  Use intentionally, as it can cause some quite odd aspect ratios!Uniform Scale Checkbox Are you a Premiere Pro power user?Share your tips and advice in the comments below!last_img read more
