The new season matches are out and every fan I meet is already counting down the days until the action starts on Saturday August 13th.

Without a shadow of a doubt, the Irish League currently represents the best value for money football entertainment in the UK and the steady increase in attendance figures over the last few years certainly testifies to this assertion.

However, although our game is seeing a steady rise in the popularity rankings, I guess there’s still no harm in aiming for perfection and having a wishlist for the upcoming season.

Personally – and I admit that I am probably in the minority here – I really feel that the level of refereeing is also improving. Sure, there will be games when the referee stinks, but haven’t we all had bad days at one time or another in our lives?

Credit where credit is due to our match officials, but there is still room for improvement.

We have a few referees who have understood our game – and the crooks trying to trick them – well and truly understood.

I would now like to see the rest of our officials follow their lead and crack down on the divers who plague our game and are a growing embarrassment to the vast majority of solid, genuine players who entertain us week in and week out in the Irish League.

It was abundantly clear, especially last season, that when top referees ignored drama queens who fell to the ground as though they had been rammed, they quickly got back to their feet and continued play as soon as they hit. they realized they had been discovered.

We badly need more of this quality from match officials and believe me we will soon see the scammers, divers and cheaters who make a living from our game properly exposed. This needs to happen for the betterment of our game, together we can take them down – and the sooner the better.

The inconsistency on this issue amongst our officials is really bothering fans and managers alike, so the aim must be for more of our referees to develop a set and regain both control and the respect of everyone involved.

With attendance figures steadily rising, I also want our clubs to freeze admission fees for at least the new season.

A welcome boost in numbers clearly likes their weekly dose of Irish League football, but with inflation set to soar and the country in the midst of a cost of living crisis, it would be a fitting move if officials of the club could recognize that hardship and keep the prices fixed in extremely difficult times for everyone – especially the beleaguered parents who are also taking their children to games, putting a huge strain on an already stretched weekly budget. Clubs need to recognize this and help where possible.

Another big factor last season was the coverage provided by the BBC.

As well as the usual extensive Sportsound Saturday radio show and live commentary, we now have more games shown and delivered via the normal channels or streamed on the iPlayer.

This much broader approach has proven to be a huge success and I guess I could be accused of being a tad greedy when I say that not only would I like to see that extended coverage maintained, but I would also like to see it increased there where possible.

I loved reuniting with Ian Lewers in Northern Ireland

It was great to have a catch up and a golden round with my good friend Ian Lewers at my beloved Galgorm Golf Club on Friday.

The international hockey star from Ireland, England and Great Britain – who was at home a few days before returning to London – plays with a handicap of 4 and, believe me, if he had not become a world-class hockey player, he might well have made it as a pro on the golf tour.

He hits the ball an absolute mile and has every other shot as well, although his dad David and I still showed him that we can putt long too.

While Ian loves his football and uses Sunday Life Sport to keep an eye on developments in the Irish League, it is hockey that this multi-talented and humble lad has chosen and his career highs include being a double Olympian – 2012 in London and Rio in 2016 – in addition, he is a bronze medalist at the Commonwealth Games.

He is another outstanding sportsman who has flown the Northern Ireland flag around the world and he still loves to come home as often as possible. He loves this place and has never forgotten his roots.

Good to see Niall Horan extend his friendship with the World Invitational

Music star Niall Horan has once again confirmed his attendance at the annual ISPS Handa World Invitational Pro-Am golf tournament at Galgorm Castle Golf Club on August 10.

This event brings together some of the best male and female golfers.

Our very own Stephanie Meadow, who won the 2019 edition of the competition, will join Leona Maguire – Ireland’s first-ever winner on the LPGA Tour – in the women’s competition.

On the men’s side, DP World Tour winners Guido Migliozzi and Ewen Ferguson are set to play alongside Daniel Gavins, who will defend the title he won in style last year after posting a seven-under final round. normal 65.

Undoubtedly, we are going to have a summer of top sport – lots of choice and, in many ways, we will be spoiled for choice.

The bodies of two divers were found in a submerged cave in Florida, after a group of teenagers alerted authorities to a man floating face down in the water, according to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators identified one of the divers as 52-year-old Todd Richard McKenna. The other man’s identity is being withheld pending notification from his family, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

“Neither of the divers showed any obvious signs of trauma and both appeared to have the proper diving equipment,” the sheriff’s office said.

“We don’t know at the moment if all the equipment was working properly. Both victims were handed over to the medical examiner.

A vehicle linked to the divers was found near the cave, which has been identified as Buford Springs Cave in Chassahowitzka Wildlife Park. The site is about 55 miles north of Tampa in the Weeki Wachee area.

Investigators say a 911 call was made at 12:20 p.m. on Wednesday June 22 by one of three teenagers, aged 15 and 17, who watched divers enter the cave pool at 11 a.m. .

The divers surfaced and then returned to the cave, although one complained of a leak in his air tank, the teenagers told authorities.

“A short time later, the juveniles observed one of the divers come to the surface. The diver was floating face down, which the youths believed he was doing on purpose, to look for the other diver who had not yet surfaced,” officials said.

“Soon the juveniles noticed that there were no bubbles rising to the surface like there had been earlier. The juveniles swam out to check on him and received no response. The three juveniles were able to get the diver to the dock, but were unable to pull him out of the water.

He was later confirmed dead by two deputies who arrived in response to the 911 call. Deputies then waited for the second diver.

“As time passed and the second diver did not surface, it was assumed that he most likely encountered some type of problem in the cave,” officials said.

“Several members of the International Underwater Cave Rescue and Recovery (IUCRR) responded to the scene to attempt a recovery mission for the second diver. … IUCRR divers located the second diver approximately 137 feet below the Apparently deceased, the diver was recovered and brought to the surface.

An investigation into the deaths is ongoing, officials said.

The men died in a spring fed 150 deep underground pool and ranked among “Florida’s finest dive sites,” reports The Florida Guidebook.

However, it is only recommended for advanced divers, due to the small swimming area “hard to reach (and) possibly dangerous”, the guide says.

LONDON, June 21 (Reuters) – The Japanese yen plunged on Tuesday to its lowest level against the U.S. dollar since October 1998 as the Bank of Japan’s ultra-loose monetary policy continued to weigh.

The yen fell 0.9% to a fresh 24-year low of 136.330 to the dollar, extending losses that have already seen it lose more than 18% of its value against the greenback this year.

“The trend is your friend after the Bank of Japan last Friday stuck to its ultra-dovish political mantra,” said Kenneth Broux, FX strategist at Societe Generale.

The currency lost further ground after the Bank of Japan dashed any expectation of a policy shift on Friday and continued to stand alone in its commitment to ultra-loose monetary settings.

Instead, he stepped up his bond buying to keep 10-year yields within a target range of 0% to 0.25%. But despite his efforts, the yield remains at the upper end of this target.

Earlier in the day, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida effectively gave the green light to selling the yen when he said the BoJ should maintain its ultra-accommodative monetary policy.

He dismissed calls for the policy to be changed to target the rising cost of living. Read more

The yen’s decline was also accelerated by some broken stop losses around the 135.60 levels, analysts said, who noted traders in New York were absent on Monday, a U.S. holiday.

At 12:30 GMT, the Japanese currency was at 136.19 yen, just off the 24-year low. The yen also fell 1.2% to 143.655 per euro, its lowest level since June 9.

The yen lost more than any other major currency against the greenback, as the dovish policy stance of the BOJ stands in stark contrast to the general warmongering of global policymakers.

Northman’s directors’ commentary delves into most jaw-dropping moments https://divegearjp.com/northmans-directors-commentary-delves-into-most-jaw-dropping-moments/ Sun, 19 Jun 2022 20:25:00 +0000 https://divegearjp.com/northmans-directors-commentary-delves-into-most-jaw-dropping-moments/ 2022 has been an amazing year for movies so far.

2022 has been an amazing year for movies so far. One of the most underrated gems this year has been Robert EggerThe man from the north. The Vikings’ Revenge epic has received critical acclaim across the board and was recently released on Blu-ray earlier this month. Now, Universal has released a scaled-down version of Eggers’ directors’ commentary found on the home press release.

The nine-minute video highlights some of the film’s best moments and takes us through various aspects of Eggers’ amazing approach. Everything from camera work, lighting, action, costume design, and sound design is covered here. It’s always fun to listen to what happened behind the making of a film. Especially when it’s someone as thorough as Eggers. The director is known for his historical authenticity, practical cinematic style and long camera moves. It’s all covered here, but it’s also interesting to hear the director talk about his film as if he doesn’t know if the final product works or not. It’s kind of funny to hear someone at the top of their game like Egger talk about their job like that when The man from the north is one of the best movies of the year so far. For this reason, the filmmaker is very humble here.

COLLIDER VIDEO OF THE DAY

In the commentary itself, Eggers touches on some of the movie’s most impressive doll shots, like the tense opening scene when a young Amleth is chased by his uncle Fjölnir after murdering Amleth’s father. Other highlights include a fun Conan the Barbarian easter egg/connection and Eggers’ discussion of the film’s lighting. Especially when it comes to Nicole Kidman‘s Gudrún, Amleth’s mother, in the now infamous scene where she reveals her backstory and intentions to Amleth. The scene where Gudrún recounts how she was once a slave under Amleth’s father is nothing short of heartbreaking, but it quickly turns into a deeply disturbing scene where Gudrún embraces his son. Eggers in the commentary explains how he wanted the lighting in this scene to make Gudrún vulnerable before he was quickly consumed by harsh shadows. Hearing Egger compare his grim transition to Boris Karloff in a Universal Monster movie is very weird and will put a smile on any fan of the genre. It’s one of many moments where Egger’s horror past is terrifyingly alive in this tragic tale of revenge.


RELATED: Is ‘The Northman’ Based on a True Story?

Whereas The man from the north is probably Egger’s most accessible film compared to his horror films The witch and Lighthouse, the film took everything the director learned from those two masterpieces and applied it on an epic scale. However, despite this new, larger scope, Eggers never lost the intimately emotional and frankly terrifying storytelling found in his last two features. This is highlighted in this commentary, but Eggers is one of a rare breed of filmmakers who effortlessly immerses their audience in the landscape of the story. As The witch and Lighthouse before him, the Icelandic decor is a major character The man from the north. Eggers goes into the cold days that each actor endured on set, which can be felt while watching the film, and it’s one of the reasons this epic is as effective as it is.


However, this is only a small sample of what can be found in this director’s commentary. To see what Eggers had to say about Bjorkfrom costume design to the final volcano showdown, you can watch the full commentary below. You can also buy The man from the north on Blu-ray or stream this Viking epic on Peacock now:

TR PHOTOS BY SUSANNA MEYER — Stacia Foster recently took the reins as director of Le Grand Pioneer Heritage Library, as her predecessor, Shelley Barron, retired after more than three decades.

LE GRAND — After more than 30 years as director of the Le Grand Pioneer heritage library, Shelley Barron has retired, leaving the library in the care of her successor Stacia Foster.

Barron announced his retirement in the spring, and Foster began training for his new position in March. After several months of working with Barron after hours and on weekends, Foster has taken the reins and is excited to immerse herself in her role as director.

“Those are big shoes to fill. And (Shelley) knows everything. Learning from her was great, I mean the clients came and she knew all about the national parks, about the animals. She is so knowledgeable. It’s impressive,” Foster said.

Prior to serving as Principal at Le Grand Library, Foster spent 24 years working with at-risk students in the East Marshall Middle School building in Gilman, and for the past three years has worked in the college library as a librarian.

In the summer of 2021, Foster accepted a position as temporary director of the Gilman Public Library and realized that she really liked it. At the end of the summer, she returned to the college library, but her acting job had piqued her interest.

The new director of Le Grand Pioneer Heritage Library, Stacia Foster, rearranges the books on a shelf in the library. Prior to her new position, Foster worked at Gilman College for 24 years. Three of those years were spent as a librarian in the college library.

When her son graduated, Foster decided to pursue a career outside of the East Marshall School District and chose to apply for the position of Library Manager at Le Grand, something she was drawn to because of her lifelong love of literature. Foster said the passion was sparked by the adventures she had as a child in Grinnell.

“My sister and I used to – the library kept us in the summer, and then there was a bookstore in Grinnell, and I don’t know why they let us, but they let us lay on the floor and look at through the books,” Foster said. “I love to read. I love books. I love everything about it.

Foster is currently working on getting her online library director endorsement. While larger libraries often require a bachelor’s degree, the Pioneer Heritage Library is a Level 3 library that only requires completion of the endorsement program.

Planning library programs and getting to know library patrons are just two aspects of the job she looks forward to, but learning about the new job and all of its nuances is also an exciting prospect for Foster – whether he’s acts to decide what content is ordered or to be responsible for the administrative tasks associated with running a library.

Local divers offer tips for staying safe on Lake Lanier this summer https://divegearjp.com/local-divers-offer-tips-for-staying-safe-on-lake-lanier-this-summer/ Tue, 14 Jun 2022 20:51:58 +0000 https://divegearjp.com/local-divers-offer-tips-for-staying-safe-on-lake-lanier-this-summer/ It’s no secret that Lake Lanier has seen its fair share of boating accidents, drownings, and injuries.

It’s no secret that Lake Lanier has seen its fair share of boating accidents, drownings, and injuries. But can people really attribute this to rumors of spirits floating beneath the waves, or is there something else boaters and swimmers are missing?

According to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, in 2021 Lake Lanier had four drownings, 24 boating accidents, 74 BUIs and five fatalities.

As the boating season begins this summer, we’ve interviewed officials who know the dangers of Lake Lanier and have the best tips to keep you informed this year. After all, a knowledgeable boater is a safe boater.

Tan lines to be proud of

sergeant. Chris Tempel, commander of the Hall County Sheriff’s Office dive team, has been diving on Lake Lanier since 2000, responding to boating accidents and drownings.

After 22 years in the business, he said the No. 1 rule that is broken is that people don’t wear a life jacket or other personal flotation device.

Tempel said people should wear a life jacket while a boat is moving. If a boat has stopped, he said life jackets are not necessary but are still recommended for children, people with medical conditions and poor swimmers.

“I know they can give you funny tan lines, but it’s always better to be there to laugh about it than [not]“, said Tempel.

According to the Georgia DNR, every person aboard a personal watercraft, such as a jet ski or a Sea-Doo, should always wear a US Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device.

While not always the most stylish, he said life jackets and other personal flotation devices can literally save lives, and he encourages people to use personal flotation devices.

Who has the right of way?

Lake Lanier doesn’t have lanes or yellow lines to help navigate the canals, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t “rules of the road.”

Richard Pickering has been “safe boating” for over 40 years, riding everything from jet skis to 120ft houseboats and hasn’t had a single accident. He also oversees safety briefings for the Poker Run each year, an annual boating event on Lake Lanier.

“Boating on Lake Lanier can be very dangerous when people don’t know the rules of the road,” Pickering said.

Like a highway, he said boaters want to keep “generally to the right” when crossing the lake.

If you are looking to pass another boat or vessel ahead of you, keep left and keep a distance of at least 100 feet, as required by law.

If a boat or ship crosses in front of you, Pickering said the ship on the right always has right of way.

“It’s your responsibility to slow down and allow them to pass in front of you while maintaining a safe distance of 100 feet or more,” Pickering said.

He said this rule is often overlooked by novice boaters and those using jet skis and can result in people in serious trouble with maritime law. His suggestion is to take a free online boater safety course, which is provided by the US Coast Guard and DNR.

Another rule to remember is that sailboats under sail always have the right of way, as they are at the mercy of the wind and waves. If a sailboat is under engine, it must respect the same rules as boaters and personal watercraft operators.

Pay attention and understand the markers

Lake Lanier is riddled with poles, buoys and flags, but not because it looks cool. The beacons are there to keep people safe on the lake, and it’s important to know what they mean.

According to the US Army Corps of Engineers, underwater hazards are usually marked with a diamond symbol, such as submerged rocks, trees, and sandbars.

Pickering said it’s important to avoid driving a boat between a marker and the shore, as markers typically indicate shallow water; Always sail around the beacon on the far side of the shore.

“Always give the marker a good distance as well,” Pickering said.

Danger, “no wake” and “do not allow” signs are usually white, with lake navigation markers in green. More information on the specific meaning of the signs can be found on the US Army Corps of Engineers website at www.usace.army.mil.

Pickering also encouraged boaters to “leave the lake” at sunset, as many markers are unlit and can present more danger in the dark with people bumping into them and obstacles below.

Understanding Topography

While Pickering encourages all boaters and those using jet skis to drive vessels with their heads “on a swivel” to look for the markings, he said not all hazards have been marked on Lake Lanier.

Surveying topography and examining the shoreline can help boaters gauge water depth, according to Pickering.

“One of the biggest challenges for boaters on Lake Lanier is not knowing what’s underwater,” Pickering said. “If you look at the topography of the land and study it, you’ll start to see a pattern emerge.”

Pickering explained that if you see a chain of islands in the lake close together, there’s a “very good chance” the islands are connected under the waves by low areas, rocks or other obstacles. “which stand up and could cause an accident with your boat.

He said that generally if the shoreline is steep, “then there is a very good chance that the steep slope will continue underwater and give you a safe passage into deep water”.

If a shoreline slopes gently, has a beach, or you see “brown in the area”, you should give the shoreline a wide berth as this may indicate sandbars and “very shallow water”.

Stay sober and alert

In Tempel’s 22 years of experience on the lake, he has not seen the “Lady of the Lake”, an apparition some claim to have seen, or any other spirits said to suck people under the skin. ‘water.

“I’m still diving, aren’t I?” Temple said. “The first time I meet the ‘Lady of the Lake’, I believe I will end my diving career.”

He said another big factor on the lake is another type of spirit: alcohol.

According to the Georgia DNR, Lake Lanier has seen at least 30 BUIs per year for the past five years, including 84 in 2020 and 74 in 2021.

“People come to the lake for recreation and unfortunately, [alcohol and drugs] do not mix with water,” Tempel said.

He said driving a boat or jet ski under the influence is like driving a car and it is imperative to drink responsibly.

“The best way to stay safe on [Lake Lanier] is to really use common sense and good judgment and stay sober.

According to the US Coast Guard, “the operator of a boat is likely to become impaired more quickly than a driver, drinking for drinking” due to engine vibration, lake movement and sunlight.

Tips for avoiding a BUI this summer include bringing plenty of snacks and food on a day, drinking plenty of water, wearing clothes that will keep you cool, and considering having bigger parties ashore rather than onshore. a boat.

Other Resources

Whatever your style of enjoying the lake, it’s important that you keep your boat and others afloat this summer so you can cruise back and forth to see all that Lake Lanier has to offer. And show off those weird tan lines.

Coinbase shares were down more than 14% on Monday morning. Shares were down more than 21% before markets opened.

Coinbase makes a commission when people buy and sell cryptocurrencies. Monday’s decision appears to be tied to the fall in the crypto market.

Bitcoin is now trading at the lowest levels since December 2020, below $24,000, according to data from CoinDesk. Over $200 billion has been wiped from the cryptocurrency market since the start of the weekend.

Crypto lender Celsius may be partly responsible for the drop in digital currency prices. The company said on Monday that it was suspending all withdrawals, exchanges and transfers between accounts due to “extreme market conditions”. Binance also temporarily suspended bitcoin withdrawals on Monday, but said the choice was due to a “stuck transaction causing a backlog.”

Coinbase stock is down 76% year-to-date, after May first-quarter results showed revenue fell 27% year-over-year as usage fell decreases. “We believe these market conditions are not permanent and we remain focused on the long term,” the company said at the time.

CAESAREA, Israel — Divers visiting the ancient seaport of Caesarea on Israel’s Mediterranean coast occasionally find treasure, but on Friday they searched for trash.

Twenty-six scuba diving volunteers removed around 100 pounds of rubbish from between sunken pillars and submerged ruins at the historic site of Caesarea Maritima as part of a United Nations World Oceans Day initiative.

Dozens more at sites along Israel’s Mediterranean coast and on Red Sea reefs in the Israeli resort of Eilat removed more than 330 pounds of trash. The cleanup included bottles and bags, ghost nets, fishing lines, aluminum cans, stray towels and other strange objects, including a beach lounger, that were polluting coastal waters.

The events were organized by the Israel Diving Federation with support from the Environmental Protection Ministry and the Nature and Parks Authority, which manages coastal areas, including the Roman port of Caesarea.

The UN marked World Oceans Day on Wednesday, but scuba diving volunteers went into the water to clean up the sites on Friday and Saturday, Israel’s weekend.

Planet of Lana’s trailer delves into its gorgeous gameplay https://divegearjp.com/planet-of-lanas-trailer-delves-into-its-gorgeous-gameplay/ Thu, 09 Jun 2022 20:10:30 +0000 https://divegearjp.com/planet-of-lanas-trailer-delves-into-its-gorgeous-gameplay/ A new trailer for the gorgeous side-scrolling adventure Planet of Lana has been released during the Day of the Devs stream, featuring developers Wishfully Studios and showing more of the game world and types of puzzles and situations. that you can expect to encounter.

A new trailer for the gorgeous side-scrolling adventure Planet of Lana has been released during the Day of the Devs stream, featuring developers Wishfully Studios and showing more of the game world and types of puzzles and situations. that you can expect to encounter. Planet of Lana is coming to Xbox and PC later in 2022.

– ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW –

After debuting at E3 2021, we’re now seeing a lot more of what the game entails. Lana is on a mission to save her sister who has been kidnapped by an army of invading robots. It’s not Earth, but rather an alien world, and Lana soon bumps into and befriends the little creature called Mui.

This is where the confusing comes in because you can also guide Mui to go sit on switches and trigger things in the world that help Lana progress and then Mui catches up. Mui also has the ability to control some of the weird creatures and mechanics in the world, such as talking a large blobby monster into filling a pool with water that was contained within. Mui, as it happens, is afraid of water, so you might have to work around that, but he’s small and nimble and able to reach places Lana can’t.

Of course, there are also many dangers in the world. Lana will have to avoid robots and monsters using a stealthy approach, hiding in thick grass, etc. to go forward.

The game comes with a gorgeous art style, mixing hand-drawn art, parallax overlay, and some subtle 3D graphics to try and look like an interactive painting. It will look crystal clear on high-end PCs and the Xbox Series X where it will run native 4K. We can’t wait to see more as it releases later this year.

International marine conservation organizations and local fishermen removed more than 25 tonnes of sea ​​trash around the Greek Ionian island of Ithaca, WPTV reported. Divers have removed about 25 abandoned or lost fishing nets called “ghost nets” from the sea in the past two weeks.

A clip shared by Now this news on Twitter showed the divers picking up fishing nets from the seabed. A crane attached to a barge was also seen lifting and depositing the waste in large bins.

The cleanup activity was organized by Healthy Seas and an international non-profit group, Ghost Divers, ahead of World Oceans Day on June 8.

Healthy Seas said in a press release that the waste collected would be recycled into yarn to make socks, swimwear, sportswear and mats. He also noted that most of the trash was left behind by a fish farm that closed.

The press release also states that 6,40,000 tons of fishing gear are lost or abandoned every year in the seas and oceans. “The phenomenon takes on the name ‘ghost fishing’ because the nets seem almost invisible underwater, trapping and killing all sorts of marine animals,” the press release said.

Veronika Mikos, director of Healthy Seas, reportedly said in the press release: “The main difference of this ghost net cleanup project is that the owner of the derelict fishing gear we have discovered and removed has a name. We have confronted this environmental crime 2 years in a row, worked to restore it, as well as to understand who is responsible and in a position to do something about it. The case is very complicated. »
