GARDAI CHANGE LOCKS AT DISPUTED HOUSE AS ‘JOHN DOE’ FLEES

first_imgJohn Doe, aka Daniel Greene has fled the house.Gardai move into the house in Newtowncunningham this morning.Gardai have changed the locks at a house of a dead Church of Ireland Minister after a family living illegally at the house fled.The house at Rooskey, Newtowncunningham has been at the centre of a court battle for the last few months. The house was left to charity by the late Church of Ireland Minister Samuel Reede after he died in 2010.However when estate agents called to the house in February, they found the locks changed and a ‘No Trespassing’ sign up.A man known only as John Doe eventually appeared in court in July and claimed he had deeds to the house and had paid a deposit.The case was adjourned until today after Gardai called to the house yesterday looking for Daniel Green aka John Doe, who was living at the house.Judge Petria McDonnell yesterday ordered Gardai to break down the door of the house at 8.30am this morning if necessary in order to bring Green to court today.Solcitor Fiona Brown called to the house yesterday to serve a notice of motion on Green and was met by his partner Marikie.However, when Gardai arrived at the house this morning there was nobody in the house.A locksmith has changed the locks and the house has been secured.The court was told that belongings of Mr and Mrs Green were still in the house.However barrister Fiona Crawford said there were fears that Green could return to the house and change the locks as he has allegedly previously done.Judge Petria McDonnell adjourned the case until Friday to see if there any developments in the case.GARDAI CHANGE LOCKS AT DISPUTED HOUSE AS ‘JOHN DOE’ FLEES was last modified: October 16th, 2013 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:Daniel GreenJohn DoeNewtowncunninghamRev Samuel Reedelast_img read more

Take that, clown! — Pennywise the Clown (GC3XB2Z) — Geocache of the week

first_imgI admit it, I really dislike clowns. For instance, if there’s one on the street handing balloons to children, I’ll cross to the other side of the street so I don’t have to get within a few feet of him/her. While I know I’m not alone, I think I’d definitely get over my dislike of clowns for a chance to find this week’s Geocache of the Week.One of the geocache creators trying his luck. Photo courtesy of geocacher Paladium_Pennywise the Clown (GC3XB2Z), hidden in western Germany, ranks pretty high when it comes to geocache innovation, fun, and skill.  When asked about the time and commitment that went into creating this geocache, the creators, Paladium and Paulicacher, said “We think that we needed around three month’s from the scratch and around 150€. We think that the cache-building is only one part of the project. After a while you have to rethink parts of the cache according to experiences from loggers and update the cache. Also after some destructions you have to rethink the cache again and repair and rearrange parts of the cache. So it is a ongoing process.” When asked about the theme, it was a simple answer,”We think that every more sophisticated cache should have a story. So shooting a clown… hmmm… Stephen King’s IT??? :)”At first glance, this geocache is pretty terrifying. However, once you get over the fear, you’re ready to have a great time—so long as you bring the right tools for the job. According to the geocache details page, geocachers wishing to earn their smiley for this geocache will have to come prepared with at least 10L of water, some sort of water-gun, six AA batteries and at least four people. Luckily, you won’t have to carry these items through any tough trails—the terrain rating is only 1.5. However, using them might prove to be a little harder—the difficulty is 3.5. Once you’re at the cache, it’s time to have some fun.A brave geocacher next to the terrifying clown. Photo by geocacher -geosil-So far, over 600 geocachers have followed the instructions, aimed their water-guns and defeated Pennywise. Of those, 463 have awarded this geocache a favorite point. One such geocacher is jumuyou, who said (translated from German), “Since we do not have the necessary equipment, we hired our 8 year-old nephew to accompany us on our mission to protect the world from evil. He was very enthusiastic and provided us with everything that was needed. Together we set out to search for Pennywise and eventually tracked him to his hiding place. Although he resisted and ridiculed us, we did not give in and, finally overwhelmed him even faster than I thought. It was great fun. Thank you for this great cache!”More geocachers trying to defeat Pennywise. Photo by geocacher Team EhreshovenIn response to all of the positive logs and favorite points, the geocache creators said, “We are really overwhelmed by all the positive logs and personal statements from other cachers. More overwhelming is the fact that a lot of cachers come from far away only to play this cache.”This geocache requires you to perform a special task before you’re able to open the container.

Shattered Glass Tutorial in Adobe After Effects

first_imgIn this video tutorial you’ll discover how to create a dynamic shattered glass effect in After Effects – great for titles, trailers and promo videos!Add a slick shattered glass effect to your motion design and video editing projects – great for giving logos and title sequences maximum impact. Shattered glass is easy to simulate using the AE built-in Shatter effect.In this video tutorial we walk through step by step through the process of creating this glass effect in your own After Effects video projects.First we’ll add the shatter effect to shape layers in After Effects. Then, we’ll make the animation more dynamic with the After Effects virtual camera. Lastly, we’ll apply this effect to text.Learn the basics of creating shattered glass in After Effects and then tweak this animation for your own custom effect:Full Video Transcript:[color-box color=”gray”] This is Evan Abrams for PremiumBeat.com and today we’re going to be shattering glass in After Effects. We’ll be making use of the built-in shatter effect and you don’t even need to use external 3D programs to make it happen. So let’s get into After Effects and start breaking things.So the first thing to do in After Effects is create a new composition and we’re going to go with the HDTV 1080 24 pre-set and duration of 1 minute long, background color black, and click OK. The first thing to do is to make the actual thing we’re going to shatter. So to do that we’re going to create a new solid and we’re just going to leave that solid as black because we’re using a very dark scene. So we’re just going to be shattering a black piece of glass, but you can use any piece you’d like. So if you use, say, like a gray, we’d use blackness of 10. And then we’ll put some text on top of it, for example, just type in the word, “glass.” Scale it up and put it in the center of the composition there.  This will serve as our glass. If you want to put other things, like a texture or any type of element that you want to shatter, it could be a logo, it could be anything, make sure you put it in this first composition. So select both of those and then we’re going to go layer pre-compose, and pre-compose both of those elements. And we’ll call this “Glass to shatter” so we know this is the glass we’re going to shatter. Good. Now to this we’re going to apply the shatter effect, and this will determine all of the attributes of the glass that we’re shattering. So as you can see by default, that actually shatters a bunch of bricks which is not exactly what we’re after.So go into the shape and change the pattern to be glass instead of bricks. So you can see by default, also, it has fairly large chunks. We want to simulate the glass shattering in large chunks and then those chunks becoming smaller chunks. So in order to do that, we’re going to change the repetitions. So I’m just going to zoom in here on the timeline and we’re going to set key frames for the numbers of repetitions. So call up the keyframes by hitting U and I’m just going to zoom right in here. And all the action on these key frames can happen in the first five frames. So on frame one we want the repetitions to be 10. On frame two we want the repetitions to be 25. Frame three, we want them to be 35. Frame four, we want them to be 50. So they’re getting quite a bit bigger, quite a bitfaster. The extrusion depth we want to take down to .05 to make them a lot thinner, because we don’t want thick glass chunks coming out. We want a thin pane of glass shattering. And this is all a matter of scale so if you want thicker glass, of course leave the extrusion depth up.The next thing to change is the force and the force is going to have a depth of .01 and strength of 4. It doesn’t need to be as strong as the default. And we’re also going to key frame the radius. So click on the stopwatch there and the radius we want on frame one to be .11. And then on frame two we’d like it to be .12. And then on frame four we’d like it to be .17. This is causing the radius to expand into that first line of chunks and then on the next step to make sure that those chunks are still consistent with the first key frame we made. And if you’re not scaling the size of the thing coming through the glass, here, it’s going to become a little bit strange as the size of the glass changes and it changes where the edge of the break is. So these numbers help keep this within the bounds of what would be an expected shatter pattern.Now we leave the gradient and the physics alone, and we just come down here to the texture. We change the opacity down to .75. And in order to observe what we’re really doing, change it from wire frame and force to rendered, so we can actually really see the work we’re doing. Now the front mode is fine to be the layer, so it will display whatever the layer is. The side mode, however, we want to be color plus opacity, so the sides of the shattered pieces are going to be white and 75% transparent. And the back mode, we’re going to have that set just to be color, because we’re trying to fake sort of a shine that happens when light reflects off of the pieces. And we can fake this, quite simply, by having the back of the pieces be bright so it seem kind of like they’re tumbling in a light.Now speaking of lighting, we have to change some of the lighting settings. And on those settings we’re going to change the light intensity to be at 5. So quite bright. And then we’re going to move that light to be behind the plane of the shatter, so it’s casting light from the back. And we’re going to put the ambient light up to .5 and we are going to change the light color to be sort of a light blue. So I’m going to go with something like, somewhere in the blues here, not a lot of saturation and brightness all the way up to 100%. So a nice and bright light blue. And that should do for the shatter.And the next thing we’re going to want to put in is a camera so we’re able to control how we’re looking at this. So back in the effect we want to make sure that the camera system it’s using is the comp camera. So now when we move this camera around in the scene, it’s going to change the way we’re looking at the glass. So as you can see, you can move around all parts of this thing with the camera to get a better look at it. In order to control the camera better, we’re going to make a new null object and we’re going to parent the camera to the null object and use the null object’s rotation and position to move the camera around. So make the null object 3D, pull up its rotation, just use moving the null object around on the screen to change its position around. So we’d like to change its wirerotation a little bit, so it’s kind of exploding out, and maybe set the camera a little bit below it. And something like that, and now we’ll just grab ahold of that Z access and just push ourselves in closer. Now you can see we’re nice and close, and it explodes right into the camera. So that’s quite good. Move us back so we can see the full frame of that break, and that should be good.So we have this thing breaking and it creates a hole, so that’s all good. If you’d like to put a background, something in behind here, now is definitely the time to do that. So I’m going to create a new solid and make the solid completely black. Hit OK, good. And just move it in behind so it’s a light window that breaks and there’s nothing but blackness in behind. So take all of these elements and we’re going to pre-compose those and we’re going to call this “glass animation.” And now we’re going to time relap this make it more dramatic. So just go layer, time, enable time relapping. Now, we want to go to where that first shatter kind of happens, so it’s breaking. And we want the pieces to be right in our face, so that’s a good spot to start. And you can just go ahead about five or so frames, put a key frame there, as well.Now we’re going to just go ahead to where all the pieces have fallen off and away and set a key frame there. Advance the last key frame and remove it, because really our animation is done after all our pieces are off. What we’re going to do is grab these last two key frames here, and we’re going to move them away from the first two key frames. And After Effects fills in the rest of the information to make this floating glass happen for us. Then we’ll just pinch the last two together a little bit, so that it’s floating and then it speeds away. And now take these center two keyframes, so they’re the start and end of the slowdown, pull them control or command, click on them, turn them into these nice circles to auto their values. And then you can see that it kind of gradually gets into theslowing and then it comes out of the slowing, as well.And the last thing to add to all of this stuff is what’s called a force motion blur, which will force these things to be blurry. So that it’s blurry and then it slows down like the camera is speeding up to catch these things, but you still have that nice motion blur when it breaks open. So stylistically, we’re also going to want to make a new adjustment layer and on that adjustment layer I’m going to put a curves. I’m going to use this curves just to kind of make these things brighter and a little more contrast. I’m going to go into the red and pull some of the reds out. I’m going to go into the blues, and add some blue. Just to give it a blue look, because for whatever reason things at nighttime are blue and we associate blue with dark things.Now we’re going to create a new, solid, maybe comp size, keep it black and put it below everything. And on this layer we’re going to put a ramp and make the start of the ramp to be sort of a lighter color, so maybe a 20%. And the end color, make it fully dark. Good. Set the start of the ramp to be in the center. Set the end of the ramp to be out of frame, down in the corner. And then set your glass animation to be on add so that you can see we’ve got this nice gradient just behind, coloring everything. And maybe change the gradient to a radial gradient. And that looks quite nice. Although, the linear gradient, you know, there’s something to be said for that, as well. So just make this a little darker, I’m happy with those results. So now you have a nice, shattering title of whatever you put on that first layer.And you can always go back to that layer, the glass to shatter layer, and then change this. So if you don’t want it to say “glass,” it can say, “EC Abrams from Premiumbeat.com.” And then you can have a nice, little title here. You might just want to size that up and put that in a better spot, but all told, that pretty much sums up what we’re making. The last thing to do is, of course, export it, where you’ll just set your work area and render it out.So, this has been Evan Abrams for PremiumBeat.com, your source for tips and tricks in After Effects and other applications, on our blog.

We respect Supreme Court’s verdict, says Rajeev Shukla

first_imgIPL chairman Rajeev Shukla said on Monday that the BCCI respects Supreme Court’s verdict and will look to implement the recommendations made by the Lodha panel.”We respect SC’s decision. Will look into how we can implement the Lodha panel recommendations,” Shukla was quoted as saying by television channels.The Supreme Court accepted the major recommendations of the Lodha Committe on reforms in the BCCI which included a bar on ministers and civil servants being a part of the cricket board. It also accepted the bar on people above the age of 70 being the boards member but left it to Parliament to decide whether it should come under RTI. (Also read: Supreme Court gives BCCI 6 months to implement Lodha reforms, ministers barred)Former India cricketers Bishan Singh Bedi and Kirti Azad too accepted the verdict of the apex court.”Let’s all accept Supreme Court’s verdict gracefully & humbly-after all isn’t health of Indn Crkt more imp than any personality pol/otherwise!” tweeted Bedi.Azad took to Twitter as well to express his views.”My stand vindicated, #SupremeCourt accepts Justice Lodha committee report.

Lloris banned & fined £50k after drink-driving guilty plea

first_imgTottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been banned from driving for 20 months and fined £50,000 after pleading guilty to drink-driving.The France international attended a hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday after he was stopped by police on August 24.The court was told the 31-year-old provided a sample containing 80 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, more than twice the legal limit in England and Wales. Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! An unmarked police car had spotted Lloris – who captained Les Bleus to World Cup glory in Russia on July 15 – as he drove his Porsche Panamera in the early hours, with prosecutor Henry Fitch claiming the player went through a red light before being stopped.Fitch also told the court that police saw Lloris driving at 15mph in a 30mph zone, and veering towards parked cars before correcting himself. Vomit was discovered within the car, and Lloris had to be helped from the vehicle by officers.David Sonn, defending, said Lloris had been dining in a restaurant where he received drinks from fellow diners.”On July 15 he was arguably the proudest man on the planet [after France’s World Cup triumph],” Mr Sonn said.”Just 40 days later, he was arrested. He experienced the indignity of being handcuffed and put in a police station overnight.”The spectacular fall from grace is not lost on Mr Lloris,” he said.The keeper issued a statement after his arrest, featuring a fulsome apology.“I wish to apologise wholeheartedly to my family, the club, my team-mates, the manager and all of the supporters,” he said.“Drink driving is completely unacceptable, I take full responsibility for my actions and it is not the example I wish to set.”The club stated that they would deal with the “extremely serious” matter internally.He featured in Spurs’ first game after his initial arrest – a 3-0 victory at Manchester United – but was left out of the squad for the following game against Watford due to injury.Earlier this week, Lloris spoke about the ‘mistake’ he had made, telling RMC, he stated: “Like everyone, I have my private life. I made a mistake. You have to accept responsibility for it. I have to stay focused on the most important things to me, the pitch, my friends, my family. I always want to go out onto the field to have fun and keep improving myself.”Lloris has been nominated for The Best FIFA Goalkeeper award, along with Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois and Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel.Mauricio Pochettino’s side return to action against Liverpool this weekend, but it remains to be seen if Lloris will feature.

Kirk Herbstreit Says 1 College Football Team Needs A Lot Of Help

first_imgKirk Herbstreit On College Football's Most "Intimidating" StadiumESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit believes one major college football program needs a lot of help moving forward in order to seriously get into College Football Playoff contention.Unfortunately for this major college football program, Herbstreit is probably right.Washington State has just one loss and is ranked No. 8 in the country, but the Cougars still appear to be a ways out from legitimate College Football Playoff talk.Herbstreit says they need help.Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Oklahoma, Michigan, Notre Dame and Ohio State, among other programs, all probably have better paths to the College Football Playoff.The ESPN college football analyst believes that Washington State needs some help from the Big 12 and the Big Ten in order to potentially reach the College Football Playoff. A loss from Notre Dame would probably help, too.If Oklahoma and West Virginia can beat each other once in the next couple of weeks and the Big Ten East Division champion loses in the conference championship game, it’s possible that Washington State could end up getting into the top four.Still, it’s probably a longshot for Mike Leach’s program.Herbstreit believes Washington State needs plenty of help moving forward and he is most-likely going to end up being right.last_img read more

PM Opens Festo Training Centre at CMU

first_imgStory Highlights Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, on Wednesday (September 19), officially opened the region’s first Festo Authorised and Certified Training (FACT) Centre at the Caribbean Maritime University (CMU) in Kingston.The state-of-the-art facility, which will deliver international certification in industrial automation and mechatronics, is the result of a partnership between the CMU and globally renowned German training institute, Festo Didactic.The Centre, which is the largest to be established globally, has the capacity to train and certify more than 4,000 students annually.Prime Minister Holness, who delivered the keynote address, said the facility’s development is consistent with Jamaica’s commitment “to develop our human resources, so [that] they are second to none and to develop our institutions, so that they are modern and internationally competitive”.He noted that the world is on the cusp of the fourth industrial revolution, which integrates physical, digital and biological technologies, and the scope and complexity of transformation requires that “we must be cutting-edge and ensure that high standards are the norm and not the exception”.He said the Centre will ensure that graduates are “instilled with analytical and creative habits of thinking and an aptitude for discernment and sound judgement that can guide them through a lifetime of achievement and success”.“It is through equipping our human resources to be productive and competitive that we will attain the potential and will for positive growth and development,” he pointed out.In his remarks, Education, Youth and Information Minister, Senator the Hon, Ruel Reid, said the FACT Centre has provided the Caribbean with the largest cutting-edge engineering training capacity.“The CMU, as we all know, has already soared to national, regional and international acclaim… and now partnering with Festo… will bring the university to even higher heights. I am confident that this addition to the CMU campus will yield fantastic results,” he added. The state-of-the-art facility, which will deliver international certification in industrial automation and mechatronics, is the result of a partnership between the CMU and globally renowned German training institute, Festo Didactic. Festo Didactic Regional Director for the Americas, Dr. Theodoros Ktistakis, noted that the FACT Centre’s opening culminates six years of discussions with the CMU, and will provide training opportunities for young people in a “modern and motivating environment”.He said that the training and certification that will be provided at the CMU, through the FACT Centre, “will have worldwide acceptance”.“The training facility, which we inaugurate today, and the CMU’s team, which are trained and certified, are the guarantors that education and skills development correspond to international standards. Festo, as a long-time partner of CMU, will constantly support you and will be at your side,” he assured.For his part, CMU President, Professor Fritz Pinnock, described the FACT Centre’s establishment, as a “journey with a vision”, adding that “this is only the beginning, as we [will be] leapfrogging into the future” through the training and certification provided.Other key partners in the development of the FACT Centre include the PetroCaribe Development Fund, which provided US$402 million of the US$700-million-plus expenditure on the facility, and HEART Trust/NTA, which will partner with the CMU in programme delivery.
