Judge saves Christmas cheer as he grants village drinks license

first_imgA Judge has saved Christmas for revellers in a small Co Donegal town.Gardai had objected to a dance license for the Fleets Inn disco in the seaside village of Downings on Christmas night for two hours from 12.01am until 2am.Garda Inspector Barry Doyle said they had concerns as there would be only ‘skeleton staff’ on call that night. He told Letterkenny District Court that he was concerned that it would be difficult to get emergency response staff such as Gardai and ambulance personnel because it was Christmas night.He also had concerns about the lack of taxis in the area at the time when up to 250 people piled out onto the street after the disco on Christmas night.Solicitor Conor McLaughlin said there had been the same objection last year.However, the license was refused in the district court but was successfully appealed to the circuit court. He said that three premises across Donegal had been granted licenses for Christmas night dances last year.He said a limit of 250 patrons had been put on the Fleets Inn last year but only 187 people attended the disco.He said that up to five bouncers would be employed on the night, a taxi firm operated in the area and that there had been no trouble during or after the dance.He said that as far as he knew this premises was the only one in Donegal applying to have a disco on Christmas night this year.Judge Paul Kelly said perhaps it could be the case then that people from all over Donegal would come to Downings for the only Christmas night dance. He asked Mr McLaughlin if the premises planned to advertise the event.He was told that it was unlikely at this late stage because print companies were too busy.Judge Kelly said he was granting the license but said he was limiting the tickets to a total of 250.He said that he also wanted tickets for the event numbered and that if it was being advertised then those attending should be told that it is by ticket only.

Security: Security Budgets Grow as Sophistication of Threats Increase

first_imgGartner defines the security infrastructure market as the software, services and network security appliances that are used to secure IT equipment.  The security infrastructure market segment is expected to grow between 9 and 11 percent annual both this year and next.  Worldwide spending on security is expected to rise to $60 billion in 2012, up 8.4 percent from $55 billion in 2011. Gartner expects this trajectory to continue, reaching $86 billion in 2016.Within security infrastructure, the fastest growing industry segments include: IT outsourced security services, secure Web gateway appliances, and security and event management (SIEM).Gartner finds that 45 percent of businesses are increasing their budget for security while  most other companies are keeping their security spending at the same level.Driving the growth in demand for security infrastructure products is the increase of sophisticated threats.  Threats include hacks, malware, phishing, and other software exploits.  BlueCoat, a Web security company, for example, estimates that the amount of activity related to malicious sites on the internet increased by 240 percent in 2011. Tom Cross, director of security research for network security company Lancope, said that “The significance and sophistication of computer security threats is growing with each passing year.  Today’s enterprises have to worry not only about widespread malware attacks and hacktivism, but also more stealthy, targeted attacks from various parties including unfriendly nation states and corrupt insiders.”The following InfoGraphic created by security company F5 show how the nature of security threats has been rapidly changing:last_img read more

(AP Photo/Tony Dejak)CLEVELAND — Their fierce rivalry is over, reduced to only memories.The Warriors and Cavaliers had something special, four straight NBA Finals that Steph Curry will one day savor.ADVERTISEMENT Some day.“It was historical,” Curry said. “I’ll definitely sit back on the couch in 10 or 12 years when it’s all over and think about what it was like to play here, and how high the stakes were every time we came into this building.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefRight now, Curry and the Warriors aren’t ready to reminisce.Curry made nine 3-pointers and scored 42 points, Kevin Durant added 25 and Golden State returned to face a very different looking Cleveland team for the first time since winning another NBA title and beat the Cavaliers 129-105 on Wednesday night. Fully healed after missing 11 games with a strained groin, Curry scored nine points in less than a minute midway through the fourth quarter to help the Warriors pull away for their eighth straight win over their former Finals rivals. Curry added nine rebounds and seven assists, and Durant had 10 rebounds and nine assists.It was Golden State’s first visit to Cleveland since June, when the Warriors completed a sweep to win their third championship in four years.Nothing in Quicken Loans Arena felt or looked the same.“The energy before the game, after the game,” Durant said, noting the changes in Cleveland. “There were more media members here the last couple of years. We were talking about that before we ran out on the floor. That was a circus right here during the Finals. You start thinking about the great memories you had, especially the championship.“I’m sure we’ll feel those feelings every time we walk into the building.”ADVERTISEMENT Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss PLAY LIST 02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games SEA Games: PH dancesport looking to sweep golds Hotel management clarifies SEA Games footballers’ kikiam breakfast controversy MOST READ LATEST STORIES Judiciary Committee set to take over Trump impeachment probe Hotel says PH coach apologized for ‘kikiam for breakfast’ claimcenter_img Another case filed vs Cardema This was the first matchup between the Warriors and Cavaliers since LeBron James left as a free agent last summer. The Cavs are starting from scratch after a four-year run as Eastern Conference champions, and they’re struggling without All-Star Kevin Love, who is recovering from foot surgery and while forward J.R. Smith is on a forced hiatus.There are no playoff plans in Cleveland, where fans are keeping as close an eye on Duke’s talented freshmen players as what the Cavs are doing.Tristan Thompson, one of the only holdovers from those powerful Cavs teams, had 19 rebounds and 14 points. Rookie Collin Sexton scored 20 points for Cleveland.For Warriors coach Steve Kerr, the Golden State-Cleveland Finals, a four-act play loaded with drama and intensity, had it all.“Some of the best basketball I’ve ever seen in my life,” Kerr said before the game. “Obviously, they have a new team and so you move on. Part of me is a little nostalgic for that.”But those days are gone.“It’s not a rivalry, it’s another game,” Kerr added. “They’re trying to build something and we’re trying to continue our run for as long as we can.”The Warriors had trouble shaking the Cavs until Curry took control.Golden State’s lead was just 10 when he got fouled while hitting a 3-pointer and completed the four-point play. He then buried another 3 and followed that with two free throws to put the Warriors ahead 116-99 with 5:34 left.Kerr isn’t surprised Curry is back to being himself. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “It’s pretty rare, but Steph is rare in general in everything he does,” he said. “We’ve seen it before where Steph was out with an injury and comes back and starts lighting it up right away. The guy keeps himself in amazing shape, which allows him to come back pretty quickly if there is an injury.”Rodney Hood’s off-balance heave — he caught the ball in and flung it toward the hoop — gave Cleveland a 64-58 lead and capped an action-packed first half.With Hood scoring nine quick points, the Cavs opened with a 12-2 run, fell behind by eight and then made three 3-pointers and scored 11 points in the final 1:10.Curry scored 25 in the opening half, making six 3-pointers.TIP-INSWarriors: Kerr said F Draymond Green (sprained toe) could return as early as Monday when Golden State hosts Minnesota. Green has gradually increased his on-court work of late and Kerr said he “had another good day today. He’s really making strides.” Green rode the stationary bike in the hallway outside the Warriors locker room before the game. … On a five-game road trip without a single back-to-back for the first time since 1985-86. … C DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) has started practicing and is making progress, but the team does not have a specific timeline for his return. … Durant and Shaun Livingston were assessed technicals.Cavaliers: Thompson, too, said the Warriors-Cavaliers rivalry is officially over. “It’s in the past. New season. New team. Our ballclub is different and they’ve made some changes, but predominantly the same. That’s all the last four years,” Thompson said. “That was great for the NBA. We’re in a new chapter for our organization.” … Coach Larry Drew said there is one positive to the Cavs no longer being an elite team. “I get Christmas off this year, so I’m excited about that,” he joked. Turning serious, Drew said he’ll savor the best run in Cleveland history. “I’ll look back personally and just say, ‘Wow I was in the Finals four straight years’ and that’s something I’ll always remember,” he said.UP NEXTWarriors: Conclude five-game trip Friday night at Milwaukee.Cavaliers: Host Sacramento on Friday night.

Cardiff to be active in January window says Warnock

Hasselbaink backs Sarri at Chelsea

first_imgThe former Chelsea footballer believes Maurizio Sarri can still do well in the English Premier League.Chelsea started the 2018-2019 English Premier League season with a bang, winning 12 consecutive matches.But then they fell into a slump, and have struggled recently to pick up points.The Blues are currently in the fourth position of the standings with 50 points, seven behind third-place Tottenham Hotspur and 12 behind second and first place, Liverpool and Manchester City respectively.And for Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, a former Chelsea striker, boss Maurizio Sarri can still lead the team to greatness.“I think the criticism is a little unfair towards him, he had a really good start to the season,” Hasselbaink told Sky Sports News.“You need to give him the time, it’s only six or seven months that he’s been in the building, so you need to give him the time and you need to give him the trust.”“He’s put Kante in a different position because he sees that position in a different way and that’s where it (the criticism) started,” he added.“Whatever you say, Kante’s the best defensive midfield player at winning the ball back, so that has raised eyebrows.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.The ex-Netherlands international played for Chelsea from 2000 to 2004, scoring 70 goals in 136 matches.He also played for Telstar, AZ, Campomaiorense, Boavista, Leeds United, Atletico Madrid, Middlesbrough, Charlton Athletic, and Cardiff City.And now he’s a coach, having managed Royal Antwerp, Burton Albion, Queens Park Rangers, and Northampton Town.“He believes in playing football in a certain way and that is dominating the ball in possession,” the 46-year-old continued talking about Sarri.“That’s how he believes Chelsea is eventually going to win titles and cups.”’I want to see him happy.’— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) February 8, 2019last_img read more

Local Legislators Talk Possible Second Special Session

first_imgRepresentative Sarah Vance: “There’s many of us in the House minority, the House Republicans, who believe we can accomplish the work now. The operating budget could have been completed before the 120 days expired, but because people were holding out for what they want they did not move it. There was not any new things done this week that could not have been done prior.” KSRM News spoke with each of our local legislators on Tuesday, and none of them seemed optimistic that the Legislature will be able to find agreement prior to the end of the first special session on Friday. Representative Gary Knopp: “A second special session to address the capital budget and the PFD is really what I think needs to happen. We’re just out of time. We can’t pass a capital budget now and expect the Senate to rubber stamp it and concur, and no time to conference it. That is my belief. Unless something strange happens, I think that’s what needs to happen. We are simply out of time.”  The Senate unanimously passed the Fiscal Year 2020 operating budget during a floor session on Monday.  The Alaska House of Representatives passed the same operating budget on Sunday which does not include a PFD. Representative Ben Carpenter: “It is a possibility if the House Majority fails to act in the next three days on a capital budget then we would have to go into a second special session in order to have a capital budget. We are at the mercy of people who are not thinking logically. I do not understand why we can’t do the job the state has asked us to do in a timely manner.” center_img Senator Peter Micciche: “We unfortunately clearly need another special session to settle the PFD issue. Although half of us, including me, in the Senate voted for a $3,000 PFD and tried to get it back into the budget yesterday we couldn’t get an 11th vote. At this time the House has not made any kind of a definitive statement on a dividend. A legislative session should be over in 90 days, 110 at the most, unfortunately the House was late to organize. We had to pass a budget and send it to the governor so that the process can continue on an operating budget, and so he has opportunity to veto what he believes is right.”  Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Lawmakers won’t be packing their bags anytime soon amid a looming second special session, where they’re expected to reach a compromise on two major issues… the PFD and a capital budget. House and Senate leaders expect the budget bill, HB 39, to be ready for Governor Mike Dunleavy’s review within three days. The vote averts a government shutdown and allows state services to continue with the next fiscal year beginning July 1.last_img read more
