Mississippi State’s mascot Bully narrowly avoids disaster vs. Auburn Lots of Clemson fans at UNC game pic.twitter.com/V8GWRyj9Ut— Jay Robbins (@HeelinPa) September 28, 2019The caption suggested one group of fans “thinks that Clemson is in Georgia.” The caption for another group said the fans “can’t name Clemson’s last head coach,” while others think “‘The Fridge’ is just a kitchen appliance,” in reference to former Clemson All-America defensive lineman William Perry’s nickname.The Greenville News notes Cunningham “also has responded to all of the emails he has received so far about the video board spot.”With Saturday’s loss, the Tar Heels fell to 2-3 while the Tigers improved to 5-0. “We regret that it was produced. … We addressed the inappropriateness of the spot with the responsible staff members immediately after it was shown, and we will continue to address this week the breakdown in process that led to it.”During a timeout in UNC’s 21-20 loss to Clemson, several Tigers fans were featured on the video board with accompanying captions, implying Clemson fans were bandwagon fans.

Former murder suspect in the Laing Avenue shooting, Negus Lamaizon and his alleged accomplice, Corinth Taylor, made their final court appearance on Wednesday before Magistrate Dylan Bess at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts as their robbery trial closed with a guilty verdict.In April last, the two were arraigned before the court and remanded to prison forJailed: Negus Lamaizonrobbing four church members at gunpoint when they crashed a farewell party on Regent Road in Georgetown. They had denied the allegation and were remanded to prison.On Wednesday, the Magistrate declared that the prosecution had successfully proven its case against the two beyond reasonable doubt.After taking into consideration, several mitigating factors in the circumstances, Magistrate Bess was inclined to deduce some time from the sentence he otherwise would have handed down, considering the length of time spent on remand.Lamaizon was sentenced to four years and two months in jail, while Taylor would serve four years and six months in total.The men were found guilty of robbing Adidre Liverpool, Robin Tibruce, Lester Andrews and Quacy Waldron, of a quantity of jewellery, smartphones and other valuables totalling over $500,000.In a separate incident brought earlier this year, Lamaizon was hauled before theJailed: Corinth Taylorcourts after he was implicated in the murder of Orin Malik David, but was freed by Magistrate Bess after the prosecution’s evidence was ruled to be largely insufficient to commit him to stand trial in the High Court. He was slapped with the robbery charge two weeks after the murder charge was dismissed.The second suspect, Samuel McIntyre also walked away a free man while their alleged accomplices, Jermaine “Smokey” Jeffers and Howard “Spleen” Rambarose were committed by Magistrate Judy Latchman in a separate Preliminary Inquiry (PI) as the prosecution managed to make a prima facie case against them.
By Brendan Riley THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MINDEN, Nev. – High above a landscape of canyons and shadows, veteran pilot Jim Herd sees a tiny flash on a mountainside. A mirror? A piece of wreckage? A closer look reveals a prospector’s small mine, the reflection most likely coming from metal fencing or some broken glass. Despite the absence of clues, searchers remain hopeful, knowing that Fossett has a Houdini-like history of escaping from seemingly impossible jams. He has held 116 speed or distance records, including being the first to circle the globe alone in a balloon. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! It was just another false alarm during a week of mysteries and dashed hopes in the search for millionaire adventurer Steve Fossett. The other-worldly terrain of northwestern Nevada has bedeviled the many search crews who have been hunting around the clock since the 63-year-old aviator disappeared on Monday after setting out in a single-engine plane. “When you stare down at the desert long enough, you’ll know it when you see something that doesn’t look normal,” said Herd, guiding his Beechcraft Bonanza toward a barren ridge, its gentle folds looking like a rumpled blanket from 2,000 feet overhead. The skies over the search area – more than 10,000 square miles, or an expanse the size of Massachusetts – have swarmed with aircraft since Fossett was reported missing on a flight to scout out desert locations for his latest adventure, an attempt to set a land-speed record in a jet-propelled car. On Friday, 26 planes and helicopters took off from the search headquarters at the Minden airport.

15 September 2011South African website wine.co.za is offering free QR-codes – codes that can be read by smartphones – to local wine estates for use on their bottles, giving consumers quick and easy access to information about the wine on the internet.QR-codes (Quick Response Codes) are a kind of barcode that is printed on a product or label, which can then be photographed and interpreted by a smartphone. They usually contain links to enable easy access to websites, negating the need for consumers to have to type in long addresses or URLs.“By placing a QR-Code on say a back label, a wine producer can supply much more detailed information about their wine, directly to the consumer, at the time of purchase,” wine.co.za said in a statement this week. “In the case of wine.co.za, we have already created a mobi-page for every wine in our extensive database.“This page will present the full technical analysis, tasting notes, accolades, contact details of the producer.”Adding value to marketingAccording to wine.co.za, Wines of South Africa recently requested producers to take a look at QR-Codes as they add huge value to marketing wines, at very low cost, and with the free QR-Codes the cost remains very low.All wine producers need to do is to ensure that their information is kept up to date on wine.co.zaTo check out QR-Codes in action, go to www.wine.co.za/mobi and select a winery name to show a list of wines that wine.co.za has generated QR codes for.Then use your cell phone’s barcode reader to “photograph” that image. A web page will appear on your browser with everything about the chosen wine.Many smartphones come preloaded with QR-code readers. Otherwise, QR-code readers can be downloaded from the native “app” store.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material
Check out these 3 easy ways you can use SFX to add depth to your next video.Cover image via Shutterstock.The proper use of a single sound can change the entire feel of your production. Your audience might not notice it, but their their viewing experience will be better for it.Let’s have a look at three ways you can use SFX to improve your next project. 1. AtmosphereUse ambient sound to help create an atmosphere. The ambiance is simply the background sounds of your environment, whether it’s a crowd at a football stadium, a chorus of frogs croaking in a swamp, or the low rumble of a thunderstorm. I love watching a film that relies heavily on ambiance and natural sound. It brings me right into the environment. Watch the video tutorial and see how I’ve added several sound effects to help create the atmosphere of the interior of a commercial airliner.2. Logos and GraphicsAgain, the sound effects you choose help to communicate a mood or feel. Just as visuals contribute to branding, so too can audio elements. I’ve just added a text graphic to my airline clip, and I want to use a sound effect to help reveal the graphic. To do this, I’ve simply timed an airplane ding sound to match up with the first frame of the text graphic. I could pull from a wide variety of other travel-related SFX to reveal my main graphic. You can search through a variety of sounds here.3. MovementWhether it’s a character moving through the scene or simply a camera movement, sound effects can add life. From a snap zoom to a swish pan, a punch or a swinging sword, a good sound effect can complement a camera move. In this example, I show a gear-up style sequence wherein I’m prepping a backpack. The short montage includes a rapid-fire edit of close-up shots of the backpack. By adding a few whip and whoosh sound effects, I can make an entertaining sequence.Download 15 Free Ambient SFXLooking for some ambient noise?
