Police searched the players’ personal belongings and the team bus before identifying Ball, Hill and Riley, he said.

The North West City Region is seeing the benefits of a new collaboration thanks to its strong focus on investment, growth, and prosperity for the region, members were told at their bi-annual meeting in Derry yesterday.The North West Strategic Growth Partnership is a unique partnership established in 2016 through the North-South Ministerial Council that brings together senior Government officials from all Government departments in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.A meeting with Donegal County Council and Derry City and Strabane District Council was recently held to deliver on the strategic priorities aimed at bringing real and positive change for the North West City Region. The Partnership met at Ulster University at Magee where members were given an update on regional growth activities by the two Council Chief Executives on the ongoing collaborative work that is being carried out.Members of the Partnership were also informed about the positive work being done to respond positively to the challenges and opportunities presented post-Brexit, including information on the work that is being done on Brexit data analysis and ongoing communication with other councils and with officials in London, Dublin and Brussels.Dr. Malachy O’Neill, Provost of Ulster University at Magee, provided an update to members on the North West Education Collaboration between the University of Ulster, the Letterkenny Institute of Technology, the North West Regional College and the Donegal Education and Training Board.Representatives from ICLRD also provided an update on the NW Regional Dashboard Project outlining the opportunities that exist for everyone to benefit from the data sharing opportunities the project will bring. Speaking following the meeting, Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr Seamus O’Domhnaill, praised the work of the North West Strategic Growth Partnership and the commitment shown by its members.He said: “This is a very unique partnership that allows us to outline the key strategic priority needs for our region including critical transport and infrastructural requirements, industry and the economy as well as the work we can do to build on our strong existing cultural, heritage and tourism assets.“At the meeting today there was a real commitment from all of the members to assist in developing our resilience in a changing environment and working through sustainable engagement to achieve our vision for growth and prosperity.”Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council Cllr John Boyle said the meeting was hugely significant and evidence of the two Government’s commitment to the North West City region.“The importance of this unique partnership cannot be overstated, it is hugely significant that we have senior representatives from various departments from both Governments around the table talking about how they can work collaboratively to achieve growth for our region,” Boyle said. “This group has the potential to make a real difference to our region by giving us the tools to maximise our potential to drive real growth.”North West City region thriving under collaborative partnership was last modified: December 14th, 2018 by Shaun KeenanShare 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:DerryDonegal County CouncilSeamus O’Domhnaillstrabane
A TV3 Junior HeadChef series hosted by Donegal chef Conrad Gallagher has been postponed to allow him time to sort out his financial affairs.The TV station is said to be unhappy that two of the Letterkenny man’s restaurants went bust last month owing the taxman €160,000.There was also an unsavoury row over unpaid wages to members of staff at some of his restaurants. Junior Head Chef was to have featured up and coming cooks aged between 13 and 18.It was due to be broadcast this autumn – but unhappy television executives have postponed the show until 2012 to allow Gallagher to sort his financial affairs.Salon de Saveurs in Dublin and Conrad’s Kitchen in Sligo both closed down last month.It is understood employees of both claim they are owed wages. The top chef – a former Michelin star award winner – continues to operate the Dining Room at La Stampa in Dublin.A TV3 source told donegaldaily.com: “The relationship between us and Conrad is fine, but we do have concerns over some of the bad publicity surrounding him in recent weeks.“It was felt that it would be better to postpone the next Junior series to allow for some outstanding matter to be resolved.”REVEALED: CONRAD’S TV SHOW POSTPONED was last modified: August 6th, 2011 by gregShare 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:conrad gallagher donegal hoteldonegal restaurantJunior head chefletterkennyTV3 Head Chef

BY EMMET RUSHE: January 2015 is here.The new wave of ‘New Year’s Resolutions’ will have started as people set out to undo the Christmas excess and ‘finally’ reach their goals. There are literally hundreds of options available to help you along your way this January.Yet with all these options available, statistics show us that 90% of New Year’s Resolutioners won’t make it to the end of January. Why then is it so hard to stick to our New Year’s Goals?Quite simply, you are expecting too much of yourself too quickly at the beginning.If you were planning to run a marathon, you wouldn’t turn up on race day with all your new training gear and expect to finish the race, would you?So why is it that most people think they can simply change a lifetime of bad habits in the first 4 weeks of January? The truth is, it isn’t your fault. We have been lead to believe through the media, television and internet, that huge rapid weekly weight loss is the norm and anything else is simply a failure.This is simply not true.Weight loss is not linear.Your weight will fluctuate day to day and week to week.You weight loss will stall; do not panic when it does. If you see every slight set back as a complete failure, you are destined to fail before you even begin.Try not to run head first into January with all guns blazing.Take a step back and have a look at what you are trying to actually achieve.For the majority of people, an extreme lifestyle shift quite often ends in failure. So what do we do?We look for what is going to give us the MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF RESULTS WITH THE MINIMUM AMOUNT OF EFFORTWe will be using the ‘2 week rule’ with this.The ‘2 week rule’ will determine if you are able to stick to one habit change before moving onto another one.What we are trying to do with this is to breed habits that will last.Change your breakfast from high sugar cereals; have an omelette with vegetables in it, or have porridge oats with berries. Try and stick to this every day for 2 weeks.Once you can master this without missing, it is time for another habit change.If you snack on high sugar cereal bars or chocolate and crisps, try changing these for a portion of fruit and nuts.A portion size is one piece of fruit and a palmful of any nut except peanuts. Again, aim for a 2 week period of time and if you can master this, without failing, it’s time to change another habit.If you drink a lot of fizzy high sugar drinks, try and swap them for the ‘diet’ or ‘free’ variety rather than cutting them out altogether.If you go ‘cold turkey’ after drinking a lot of sugary drinks for a long period of time, you will have withdrawal symptoms. This can lead to you slipping back into old habits before long. Switching to the diet or free alternatives can help you to cut calories without feeling too deprived from what you were used to.This system is not a quick fix. It is not intended to help you to lose a large amount of weight in a short period of time, but rest assured, if you start making small dietary changes, not only will you lose weight, you will be more likely to keep it off.These small changes can help you to breed new habits and because you are allowing a suitable time frame to adjust to these changes, you are more likely to succeed in keeping them. It will take slightly longer to achieve your goals, but you will achieve them.P.S . If your New Year’s plans are the same ones that you have tried and failed at for the past few years, maybe it’s time to try something else. Try stepping outside your comfort zone and try something new. You might just love it.#TrainSmartTo keep up-to-date with tips and information on how to stick to your goals in 2015, check out my page through the link below.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: NEW YEAR – NEW YOU? was last modified: January 4th, 2015 by John2Share 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:columnDonegal Dailydonegaldaily.comemmet rushefitnessJanuaryNew Year

Bengaluru, Jul 13 (PTI) JSW Bengaluru FC today revealed its plans of a full-fledged residential academy at the JSW Township in Vijayanagar, Bellary. The announcement was made at a press conference addressed by club COO Mustafa Ghouse, CTO Mandar Tamhane and new Head of Youth Development John Kila at the club offices at the Bangalore Football Stadium. The club will conduct trials in five different locations across the country – Bengaluru, Kerala, Mizoram, Punjab and Chandigarh – in the Under-16 (January 2000 to December 2003) and Under-18 (January 1998 to December 1999) age categories. The shortlisted players will then be put through a final round of trials in Bengaluru after which the selected players will relocate to the academy in Bellary. The Bengaluru leg of trials will be held from July 23 to July 30 at the Bangalore Football Stadium and interested players can register and obtain further information on the official BFC website,www.bengalurufc.com or on the clubs social media platforms. The dates of trials at the other venues will be announced shortly. The fully-funded youth development program, which will be overseen by Kila, will provide for the players accommodation, education and nutrition. “Youth Development has always been a part of the clubs philosophy and a residential academy is something weve wanted to put in place for quite a while now. John (Kila) comes with a rich experience of having implemented youth programs at various clubs and we are sure that under his guidance, our youngsters will progress through the ranks and make it to the clubs first team and in time, the Indian National Football Team as well,” said Ghouse. With licensed coaches, physiotherapists, professionals in strength and conditioning and sports science, the BFC Academy will work in tandem with the clubs first team. With regards to the infrastructure, the facility comprises a full-length sand-based football pitch equipped with floodlights, a gymnasium and a swimming pool. Kila, meanwhile, expressed his excitement at the project. “It is a privilege to be a part of this club as we are looking to put our youth in the first team, which I am very excited about. The BFC residential academy and talent hunt is a fantastic project and I am looking forward to working with the coaches and players,” said Kila. PTI SSR KHS KHSadvertisement
Left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj got a first-ever One Day International call-up when he was named on Wednesday to South Africa’s 15-man squad for three matches against England next month, followed by the Champions Trophy.Maharaj, who helped South Africa to Test success in New Zealand last month, bolsters the spin options alongside Imran Tahir for the ODIs against England. Their first group match of the Champions Trophy will come on June 3 against Sri Lanka at the Oval.Cricket South Africa convener Linda Zondi said the selectors have picked a strong squad that covered all the combinations and conditions on offer for the eighth edition of the eight-team event.”We have been working with this group of players for the last two seasons where our key emphasis has been consistency in selection,” he said in media statement.”That has shown in how this group has performed over the last while, which has resulted in winning three consecutive ODI series.”The squad will leave for England on May 16 and will begin their preparations with two 50-over tour matches against Sussex and Northamptonshire.Squad: AB de Villiers (captain), Hashim Amla, Farhaan Behardien, Quinton de Kock, Faf du Plessis, JP Duminy, Keshav Maharaj, David Miller, Morne Morkel, Chris Morris, Wayne Parnell, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir.
Ricardo Rodriguez, who was popularly known for his times with Alberto del Rio, announced his retirement from in-ring competition.He was famous as an announcer, manager and talent inside the squared-circle when he used to come out with Del Rio in the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).The 31-year-old made his debut on SmackDown back in 2010 as Alberto Del Rio’s personal entrance announcer.Although he won’t feature much inside the ring but he would often help Del Rio win matches by distracting or disrupting opponents.He did have stints on his own but they were mostly related to Del Rio storylines.He was drafted to RAW in 2011, where he got involved in an infamous incident after running over the Big Show’s leg with Del Rio’s car.Some of his notable feuds were with John Cena, CM Punk and The Miz during his time with the WWE.The California born entertainer left WWE in 2014 and went on to wrestle in independent shows across the US and Mexico before joining as a head-trainer in The Great Khali’s wrestling school in India.He took to Facebook to announce his retirement.”So I have decided to hang up the boots and just train/teach,” he said.He also talked about his time in India where he was training aspiring wrestlers.”I was training at the Great Khali’s academy over there, which is actually the official school in India. I had 23 students, but, at the time I was done, I had 100. It was just me by myself. So, basically, I was training from nine o’clock in the morning til like nine o’clock at night, with about an hour between for lunch.”advertisement
TweetPinShare0 Shares INDIANAPOLIS — Ryan Nassib finally showed the New York Giants how this new offense should look. Crisp, efficient and potent.After three quarters of bumbling around in Indianapolis, the second-year quarterback led New York to two touchdowns in the final four minutes Aug. 16.The second came on a 4-yard TD pass to Corey Washington with 55 seconds left —to give the Giants an improbable 27-26 victory against the Indianapolis Colts.“It was definitely a strange game in that way, but it shows that we have some perseverance,” Nassib said. “We’ll play until the game’s over.” For three quarters, the Giants stumbled around.Two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning finished 1-of-7 for 6 yards and was fortunate to have an interception wiped out by a Colts penalty.Backup Curtis Painter, the one-time Indy starter, completed one pass during a first half that the Giants managed only 48 yards and wound up 6 of 15 for 64 yards and one TD.The defense allowed 177 yards in the first two quarters, struggling to force punts, and kickoff returner Quintin Demps even lost a fumble.“Whatever words you want to use to describe it, there was no production,” coach Tom Coughlin said when asked about the offense. “There’s nothing to look at from a production standpoint and that’s disappointing.”Things looked so bleak that when Painter finally got the Giants (3-0) on the scoreboard with 10:16 left in the fourth quarter, on a 3-yard TD pass to Kellen Davis, the smattering of fans left at Lucas Oil Stadium thought it was more of a gimme than the start of a comeback.Sixteen seconds later, though, Spencer Adkins recovered a fumble in the Colts’ end zone to make it 26-14, and then Nassib started working his late-game magic.He led the Giants on a 92-yard drive, capped by Michael Cox’s 2-yard TD run, and then found Washington in the back corner of the end zone. Washington has caught a TD pass in each of the Giants three preseason games, including the winning scores each of the past two weeks.“He’s proven that he’s made those big plays before and he did it once again,” Nassib said of Washington.The late rally, against Indy’s backups, ruined what had been a big night for Hakeem Nicks, who signed with Indianapolis (0-2) as a free agent in March after helping the Giants win the Super Bowl in their last trip to Lucas Oil Stadium in February 2012. He showed his old team that he could still play.Nicks caught five passes for 53 yards, accounting for most of Andrew Luck’s production on a night Reggie Wayne was again held out. Luck wound up 12 of 18 for 89 yards with one TD.All week Nicks held his emotions in check, telling reporters all the right things. He looked as if he had all the right moves, too, with the exception of a couple of goodbye waves to his ex-teammates as he headed out of bounds.The second time he did it, the refs flagged him for unsportsmanlike conduct wiping out a 36-yard gain and getting a brief lecture from coach Chuck Pagano. “He knew what he did, what that discussion was going to be like,” Pagano said.The penalty didn’t stop Nicks or the Colts. On the next play, he caught an 8-yard pass for a first down, and opened the second quarter with a 17-yard catch that eventually led to Adam Vinatieri’s second field goal of the game, a 42-yarder that made it 13-0.Matt Hasselbeck replaced Luck on the next series and promptly threw a 14-yard TD pass to Da’Rick Rogers to make it 20-0 at halftime, and two field goals from Cody Parkey made it 26-0 early in the fourth — a lead that looked safe.Painter’s TD pass and Adkins’ fumble recovery gave the Giants a glimmer of hope and Nassib made it happen by overcoming two offensive penalties and converting two fourth-down chances by hooking up with Washington for the winner.“We challenged them at halftime,” Coughlin said. “I wanted us to come out in the second half and see who loved football. It was primarily the end of the second group and then the third group that did it.”(MICHAEL MAROT, AP Sports Writer)
