Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener A life-long fascination with aviation achieved a perfect take-off last Tuesday with the official opening of a permanent public exhibition of the world’s largest private diecast model aircraft exhibition at Shannon Airport.The entire collection comprises 2,300 diecast model aircraft, with more than1,500 of them on display and the rest to be rotated over time.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Located in the airport departures lounge, the collection was assembled over the past five decades by retired Limerick city man Michael Kelly (67), whose love affair with aircraft started as a boy at Shannon in the late 1950s.The unique collection includes model aircraft of 40 years old and more, with all 1:200 in scale and replicas of aircraft dating back to the 1940s.“Today is a dream come true. I fell in love with aircraft in the late 1950s, the first minute my Dad brought me to Shannon Airport to spot aircraft as they landed and took off. So, to have spent a lifetime assembling this collection and bring it back to where it all started is more than I could have hoped for,” he said.The collection, which Mr Kelly began assembling from his mid-teens, outgrew his old farmhouse home at Farranshone, Limerick but the retired plumber/fitter has decided to bring it all back ‘home’ to Shannon. The majority of it is on display, with other aircraft held back and set to be rotated as time goes on.Among the better-known are a range of Concordes that perfected take-off ability at Shannon; the Sunderland aircraft owned by Al Capone from the 1930s and the McDonnell Douglas DC6 – the oldest aircraft replicated in the collection. Also included are the Antonov 225, the world’s largest aircraft to fly commercially, which has also transited Shannon; the first Ryanair Boeing 737 aircraft and the full Aer Lingus collection.Launching the permanent exhibition, Shannon Group chairperson Rose Hynes: “Shannon is a place of homecomings and this is certainly among the best of them. This permanent display is a superb addition to the airport, a gift to passengers. Making our passengers happy, making their time in our airport go by easily, letting them know we care, is something we work hard at. This exhibition is an example of that.”Airport Director of Operations Niall Maloney said that Michael Kelly, through his determination and love of aviation, had managed to amass the largest collection of model aircraft in the world.“It’s in keeping with an airport that has probably broken more frontiers than any other of its size in the world,” he added.

During the peak of the crisis, though, levels of homes in foreclosure rose to 4 percent while properties that were delinquent rose to levels of 11 to 12 percent. These heights came precisely at a time there was the highest number of homeowners in the history of the country. This meant that not only were the percentages off the charts but they were high percentages against high homeownership.The update says that now levels are down to 7 percent for both loans in foreclosure and delinquent, about two points higher than normal. These levels are about one and half times the normal level but are down more than half from the worst of the crisis. Sharga cites RealtyTrac, saying 80 percent of the loans in foreclosure today are on loans issued prior to 2010. These old loans are extraordinarily delinquent and Sharga says there is almost no chance that these loans are going to be rehabilitated.“They are very often the cases when the borrower hasn’t made a payment in 2, 3, 4, or 5 years,” says Sharga. “These are loans coming out states like New York, or New Jersey and Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, Florida, and Illinois where there has been a backlog of judicial processes in executing foreclosures.”Now, though, delinquency rates are down and continue to go down on a year over year basis for many months. Sharga says there may be an occasional blip when some of the old loans work their way through the system, but in totality these levels are trending down on a year over year basis.“This poses challenges for companies or people whose business depends on a lot of distressed inventory coming to market,” says Sharga. “My belief and most of the economists I’ve talked to agree with this is that by next year in 2017 at some point in the year we will be back to pre-crisis normal levels of foreclosure activity.”Sharga feels there is also a very good chance that an inversion will be seen in 2018 where for the first time in decades there will be a lower number of properties in foreclosure. The update attributes this to the strict lending standards over the past few years.Click HERE to view the entire market update.

It was a tough match. But you were very close to winning it.“You know, you definitely have a lot more time in your career and I’m sure that you will get one of the Grand Slam trophies. And more. More than one.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 – Nerveless start –The Serb, 32, was the overwhelming favourite, but the supremely fit and fast Thiem, 26, always had the weapons to trouble him, which he deployed successfully for much of the match, taming his serve and unleashing some explosive groundstrokes.It was a nerveless start from Djokovic, who comfortably held then put big pressure on the Austrian’s serve, with a forehand into the net giving him an immediate break and a psychological edge after some monster rallies.Thiem, though, is as strong mentally as he is physically and he finally got on the scoreboard after another tough service game.And against the run of play, with Djokovic seemingly in control, he broke back, unleashing pinpoint groundstrokes to make the most of some loose Djokovic shots.But the world number two was unrelenting, breaking again as Thiem served to stay in the set, with the Austrian sending down his first double fault of the match at the crucial moment.Remarkably, a rare Djokovic double fault handed Thiem a break to go 2-1 up in set two with the courageous Austrian refusing to go away.The Serb was getting frustrated, looking at his coaching box and pointing at his head.He refocused and once again began attacking the Thiem serve, breaking back for 4-4, pumping his fists when the fifth seed sent a backhand wide.But two time warnings on his serve in the next game rattled Djokovic and he was broken again, with the Serb losing his cool by patting the umpire’s foot at the changeover and telling the official: “Great job… you made yourself famous.”– ‘Tough luck’ –With Djokovic still looking distracted, Thiem served out the set – the first the Serb had dropped in an Australian Open final since 2015.Djokovic appeared dejected and was immediately broken twice in set three as Thiem raced to a 4-0 lead, having won six games in a row with Djokovic imploding.The Serb was heard telling a trainer he was tired and after losing the set, he went for a medical timeout. The indomitable Serb stretched his unbeaten streak this season to 13 but he had to rally from two sets to one down to beat the courageous fifth-seeded Austrian 6-4, 4-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 in a nearly four-hour marathon. It was his 17th Grand Slam title, moving him within two of Rafael Nadal and three of Roger Federer on the all-time list.“Definitely my favourite court, my favourite stadium in the world and I’m blessed to hold this trophy once again,” said Djokovic.Victory put him alongside his fellow legends as only the third man in history to win eight or more titles at the same Slam after Nadal (12 at the French Open) and Federer (eight at Wimbledon).It also ensured he will once again be world number one when the new rankings are released on Monday, usurping Nadal. Federer remains third with Thiem moving up a place to a career-high fourth.But it wasn’t easy with the Serb looking lethargic and out for the count in sets two and three before regaining his mojo after a medical timeout to grind down the talented Thiem.Djokovic had never before won a Slam final in seven previous attempts when finding himself two sets to one down.“You and two other guys (Nadal and Federer) brought men’s tennis to another level. I am happy I can compete in these times,” said Thiem.“I fell short today but I hope soon I can compete with you again.” Novak Djokovic battled through a five-set thriller with Dominic Thiem to maintain his dominance at the Australian Open Sunday, claiming a record eighth title and returning to world number one in the process.Advertisement Loading… Promoted Content7 Universities In The World Where Education Costs Too MuchBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever Made6 Extreme Facts About Hurricanes8 Fascinating Facts About CoffeeThe Absolute 10 Greatest Shows In HBO History9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic BombsLook At Something Beautiful That Wasn’t Made By A Human Being40 Child Stars Who Look Incredibly Gorgeous As AdultsTop 10 Tiniest Phones Ever MadeBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemSuch A Sweet Life Story Of The Youngest Queen In The World
But many voters see a poor boy from the slums who made good against the odds.“I believe that whenever we give him a chance, he will be able to give a better Liberia to the youth and the homeless,” Andrew Janjay Johnson, a shoeshiner in a Monrovia market, told AFP.Embed from Getty Images– ‘Vague’ platform –Other critics accuse Weah’s Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) of having too vague a political platform, and have challenged his long absences from the senate since being elected in a race he won over Sirleaf’s son.Weah has also fended off barbs over his vice-presidential pick, Jewel Howard-Taylor, the ex-wife of jailed former president and warlord Charles Taylor.Howard-Taylor is however also a respected senator in her own right, bringing him important votes in the key county of Bong, and along with Sirleaf is one of few powerful women in Liberian public life.Weah is married to Clar Weah, and his son, Timothy, signed a pro contract with Paris Saint-Germain in July. Weah after meeting with the leader of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani recently. He led the Liberia polls but will feature in a run-off after failing to get 50% in round one.Monrovia, Liberia | AFP | George Weah, 51, emerged from Liberia’s slums to become a superstar footballer in the 1990s, and has leveraged his status as a revered figure among young people in his second run for the presidency.Now Weah has a confirmed place in the runoff round against incumbent Vice-President Joseph Boakai on November 7, the result of 12 years spent seeking to build political credibility to match his huge popularity.The first African player to win both FIFA’s World Player of the Year trophy and the Ballon d’Or, Weah was largely absent from Liberia during the 1989-2003 civil war period, playing for a string of top-flight European teams including PSG and AC Milan.After running unsuccessfully for the presidency in 2005, when he was defeated by Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Weah — whom he now hopes to succeed — says he has “gained experience” since becoming a senator in 2014.Another fruitless run for the vice-presidency on the ticket of presidential candidate Winston Tubman in 2011 brought him to further prominence among the nation’s voters, many of whom say it is “Weah’s turn” this time.Weah has put education and job creation at the centre of his platform, in line with most of Liberia’s 19 other presidential candidates.Surrounded by cheering supporters after casting his vote on Tuesday, Weah declared his “love for this country will make me a good president”.– Beloved by young and poor –Younger voters overwhelmingly favour Weah, who is idolised in his country as “Mister George”.A member of the Kru ethnic group mired in poverty, Weah was raised by his grandmother on a reclaimed swamp in one of the worst slums of Monrovia.“Grassroots citizens identify with George Weah, considering that he is close to their day-to-day experience,” explains Ibrahim Al-Bakri Nyei, a Liberian political analyst at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS).One of his most fierce critics, longtime opposition leader Charles Brumskine, has derisively called Weah “a rather accomplished football player,” saying he is not prepared to run a country.“Senator Weah who talks about change is completely out of his league, we are talking governance here, we aren’t talking to sports,” Brumskine said during campaigning.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest For the third year, Beck’s Hybrids has surveyed Practical Farm Research, or PFR trials, at their London, Ohio facility. The purpose of the PFR program is to test situations that farmers need to make decisions about for upcoming seasons, like how to manage nitrogen, whether or not to foliar feed a crop, testing products that are currently available and studying different cultural practices used by farmers all over Ohio.Tile was put into some of the ground in March and by April 18th the 2015 planting season began for Beck’s Ohio PFR trials.“Planting dates on corn and soybeans is something we test every year,” said Alex Johnson, Beck’s Sales Team Agronomist for Ohio. “Looking at the data, 2015 was nothing new as planting early gave us more yield. We know that to hold true for corn, but that was the case for soybeans as well in 2015 and those soybean seeds proved the value of seed treatment to protect those plants early on.”There were some freezing conditions on the PFR plots 2 inches into the soil after the earliest planted mid-April dates. Those plants still yielded higher than later planted fields in last year’s trials.Farmers spend at least $100 per acre, on average, on nitrogen. That called for Beck’s to test out some new equipment on their London PFR’s, like 360 Y-Drops, high-clearance spreaders with urea and some of the different ways of applying nitrogen.“A lot of rain caused some nitrogen loss early on in our plots,” Johnson said. “That means that any of the practices that got the bulk of nitrogen on later were the ones that paid the best and the more nitrogen we put on was generally better than less nitrogen last year.”Beck’s also tested some unconventional ideas that would cost a farmer little or nothing to implement, like putting sugar in the furrow on corn seed, which resulted in a 10 bushel yield bump. Johnson said that this was just the first year of that kind of test, but something he will be keeping an eye on.“Another economically friendly test we performed was moving our sidedress coulter over to only 7.5 inches away from the plant and that gave us a yield increase as well,” Johnson said. “That is something that can be done at little or no cost to the producer that may put money in their pocket.”As far as the fungicide application studies on Ohio’s PFRs in 2015, a treatment did pay off even though the disease pressure at the London location was considered on the low side.“We tested different timings, with fungicide applications at the V5 and VT stages,” Johnson said. “The VT timing gave us a return on investment and because of no disease pressure in V5, that application was not economical.”Take a look at all of the Beck’s Hybrids 2015 Ohio PFR results.
Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… The global recession, the consumerization of IT, the great cloud migration and other factors are changing the role of the CIO. Past failures of enterprise technology to live up to its promises and IT’s lack of agility caused by legacy technology have decreased the influence of the CIO, explained R “Ray” Wang in a piece for Forbes last year.Now in a new paper he has written for his own firm, Wang is exploring the future of the role that the CIO plays. He comes to the table with considerable insights. Wang is a global traveler who meets with CIOs on a constant basis in his role as principal analyst and CEO of Constellation Research, an independent firm with a key focus on the transitions the enterprise is experiencing.In the report, he proposes four new types of CIO: Chief “Infrastructure” Officers, Chief “Integration” Officers, Chief “Intelligence” Officers, and Chief “Innovation” Officers.“The top CIOs will seek mastery of all four personas,” Wang writes. “Others will bring expertise within the four personas into the team.”Chief Infrastructure OfficersInfrastructure officers will do much of what is expected of modern CIOs: reduce infrastructure costs, manage legacy technology and ensure smooth IT operations. Top priorities for infrastructure officers will include eliminating “shelfware,” adopting virtualization and cloud technologies, and renegotiating contracts.Chief Integration OfficersAnother term for this might be “Chief Connection Officer.” The integration officer will connect various IT systems. One important task will be bridging legacy and cloud services. Chief Intelligence OfficersWe don’t need to tell you that data is the future. The intelligence officer will be tasked with getting the right data to the right people on the right devices. Their top priorities will be establishing and measuring key performance indicators, improving data quality and choosing the right business intelligence and analysis tools.Chief Innovation OfficersWe’ve seen this title thrown around a lot over the past few years. A few months ago, Business Week did a piece on this role. According the article, AMD, Citigroup, Coca Cola, DuPont, Humana and Owens Corning all have chief innovation officers.According to the Constellation report, innovation officers will focus on identifying disruptive technologies and finding ways to apply them in the enterprise. What do you think?Does this seem like a reasonable forecast to you? Where do you see yourself fitting into this framework?If you want to read more, check out Wang’s article for the Harvard Business Review. 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… klint finley Tags:#enterprise#Trends IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Related Posts

Dutch pundit Derksen: No comparing Vilhena with Liverpool ace Wijnaldumby Paul Vegas25 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveDutch pundit Johan Derksen has slammed the Holland call of FK Krasnodar midfielder Tonny Vilhena.Comparing Vilhena with Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum, Derksen blasted Ronald Koeman’s selection.The former FC Cambuur star told Veronica Inside: “I don’t think Hateboer is international. I don’t think Vilhena is an international either. I think that is a run-your-rot show. He plays simple football running with the ball and then a bit wide. You can’t do it anymore. “A player like Georginio Wijnaldum is corrected by ten other players at Liverpool. Vilhena was able to run and fly at Feyenoord. People in the media said he was doing so well, so he started to believe in himself. You don’t have time for that at a club like Liverpool.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
