The charities are Francis House, Christie’s, The New Children’s Hospital Appeal, Rainbow House, The Children’s Society and Cystic Fibrosis Trust.The Children’s SocietyThe Children’s Society is a leading national charity, driven by the belief that every child deserves a good childhood. It provides vital help and understanding for those forgotten children who face the greatest danger, discrimination or disadvantage in their daily lives; children who are unable to find the support they need anywhere else. The Children’s Society’s network of projects helps over 50,000 children and their families each year. Through its pioneering research and influential campaigning, it defends, safeguards and protects the childhood of all children.www.childrenssociety.org.ukCystic Fibrosis TrustCystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common life-threatening inherited disease in the UK affecting over 380 people in Greater Manchester. Each week five babies are born with Cystic Fibrosis and three young people die – 90% from lung damage. Average life expectancy is just 31, although improvements in treatments mean a baby born today is expected to live longer. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the UK’s only national charity dealing with all aspects of Cystic Fibrosis. It funds research to treat and cure CF, supports families and tries to make sure everyone gets the right care.www.cftrust.org.ukNew Children’s Hospital AppealRoyal Manchester (Pendlebury) and Booth Hall Children’s Hospital will be relocated in 2009 to a brand new state-of-the-art children’s hospital in Central Manchester The New Children’s Hospital Appeal will help ensure the new hospital, which will be the biggest children’s hospital in the country providing specialist services to the Region’s poorliest children, has equipment and facilities that are second to none.www.newchildrenshospitalappeal.org.uk/Francis HouseFrancis House Children’s Hospice offers the families of terminally ill children a respite from their role as carers and gives the children a loving home from home. The children are all suffering from illnesses for which there is no known cure. Whilst medical science can offer the necessary relief, Francis House gives support, comfort and care in the form of:• Skilled nursing for children in a homely, happy and secure place.• An essential break for parents and for the rest of their families.• Friendship, encouragement and relief, enabling the whole family to return home refreshed.• A flexible service to suit the needs of the family, including home support and bereavement care.• A lifeline by just being available day or night.www.francishouse.org.ukThe Christie CharityThe Christie NHS Foundation Trust is one of the leading cancer treatment centres in Europe, and an international leader in cancer research and development.The Christie is based in Manchester, but because of its specialist nature, patients are treated from all over the North West and beyond. Around 40,000 patients are treated each year and medical staff share their expertise with colleagues in hospitals across the region.In addition to NHS funding, The Christie receives a significant amount of money every year through its charity. The money raised is used both to fund cancer research and to contribute to the provision of specialist medical equipment and extras that give the hospital its special comforting and therapeutic atmosphere for patients undergoing treatment for all types of cancer.www.christies.orgThe Legacy Rainbow HouseRainbow House was established in Eccleston near Chorley in 2001 by Joe Mawdsley in response to the needs of her two children. The charity now supports over 120 children and their families from across the North West, specialising in helping children with neurological problems, such as cerebral palsy, and children who have suffered brain injuries, to lead more independent lives. The charity now offers an outreach service in Cumbria and has a new purpose-built centre of excellence, The Legacy, in Mawdesley near Ormskirk.The Legacy Rainbow House uses a wide range of teaching methods including conductive education which is a unified system of learning for children with neurological disorders. At The Legacy Rainbow House children are challenged to overcome everyday obstacles which they may find in their community such as road dangers, and are involved in classroom learning through drama, physiotherapy, speech, language, music and art.www.thelegacy-rainbowhouse.com • Get festive at the Santa Run Family Day, Old Trafford Stadium, 14th December, 10:30am• Race around the stadium dressed as Santa for charity• Ho Ho Ho holly smoke it’s a sea of Santa’sDate: Tuesday 4th NovemberFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEOn Sunday 14th December, Manchester United will challenge supporters and their families to don Santa suits and running shoes and race around the famous Old Trafford stadium dressed as Father Christmas; all in the name of charity.Old Trafford will play host to thousands of sponsored runners on the day, who will make a festive dash for the finish line in aid of the Manchester United Foundation and the club’s six charity partners: The New Children’s Hospital Appeal, The Legacy Rainbow House, Francis House, The Christie Charity, Cystic Fibrosis Trust and The Children’s Society.There are two courses on the day, which run for over a mile around Manchester United’s iconic stadium and the surrounding area.

Magheroarty Rescue: Heroic cousins praised for saving lives

first_imgUpdated: 2.30pmThree local men are being hailed as heroes for saving the lives of 11 students during the rescue at Magheroarty Beach.Cousins Daniel Ferry, Eugene Ferry and Christopher Mc Garrigle rushed to help after 15 Gaeltacht students and staff were swept out by a riptide on Tuesday evening. A tragedy was avoided thanks to the young fishermen, who used a surfboard to save 11 of the students from the water.Christopher, who was home from Canada for the week, and his cousin Donal went out on a boat when the emergency signal came from Malin Head Coast Guard. Meanwhile, Eugene sped to the students’ aid on a surf boat.Daniel Ferry, Eugene Ferry and Christopher Mc Garrigle pictured at Machaire Rabhartaigh following the rescue on Tuesday 13th August. Photo: Anna Ni FhearraighThe swimmers had been in the water for some time as emergency services and the Rescue 118 helicopter scrambled to the scene.“The quick actions of these local men undoubtedly saved lives,” said Anna Ni Fhearraigh, who was at Magheroarty after the emergency. “Rescue services arrived on the scene very quickly after being contacted and did a fantastic job of transporting those rescued to Letterkenny for medical assessment.”The students were all discharged from hospital on Tuesday night, while college principal Rory MacManus was kept in overnight for treatment for water ingestion. Mr MacManus was not part of the swimming group, but he had entered the water to help when the alarm was raised. He returned to work the following day.Antoine Ó Coileáin, Chief Executive of Gael Linn, which runs the summer college, also paid tribute to the local heroes of the day.Ó Coileáin visited the college in Machaire Rabhartaigh on Wednesday, where all students are back in class.“I would like to pay tribute to the local boat men and surfers who successfully took the swimmers from the water. The assistance of the Irish Coastguard  and Rescue 118 is gratefully acknowledged. The college staff responded magnificently to the alarm and took the greatest care of students,” Mr Ó Coileáin said. “The local community, particularly the mná tí, have given massive support to everyone affected by the dramatic rescue.“We thank God that everything worked out so well,” Mr Ó Coileáin said.This near-tragedy has sparked widespread calls for a lifeguard to be stationed at Magheroarty.Daniel Ferry said: “There’s an urgent need for a lifeguard during the summer months. “Thankfully a tragedy was avoided here, however it doesn’t deflect from the matter that a lifeguard is needed.”Magheroarty Beach is not a life-guarded area as it is not a Blue Flag beach. However its popularity, particularly during Gaeltacht summer courses, has led members of the community to say that a lifeguard is vital.“Does the colour of the flag suggest the importance of the people in the water?” Daniel said.Magheroarty PierCllr Michael Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig has raised the matter with Donegal County Council.He said: “I believe that such a busy beach like Machaire Rabhartaigh, with all the students and all those that swim, should have a full-time lifeguard. The community has asked for this.”Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig is also raising questions over the emergency response on Tuesday. He is calling for an investigation into why the Mulroy Coast Guard was tasked to the scene instead of the local crew at Bunbeg.“We know that minutes, if not seconds is a matter of life and death. To my understanding, the Bunbeg response time from launch would have been 15 minutes, from Mulroy it is half an hour. There is concern about why Bunbeg wasn’t called and I have asked for an investigation into why,” Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig said.Magheroarty Rescue: Heroic cousins praised for saving lives was last modified: August 19th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:GAELTACHTMagheroartyWest Donegallast_img read more

SA delegation attends Africa-Arab summit

first_img19 November 2013 Minister in the Presidency for Performance Monitoring and Evaluation Collins Chabane is leading a South African delegation at the third Africa-Arab summit which got under way in Kuwait City on Tuesday. Over 60 leaders are attending the two-day summit organised by the African Union Commission and the League of Arab States. Aiming at strengthening co-operation between the two regions, the summit will focus on trade and investment, infrastructure development, transport, energy, agriculture and food security, and private sector development and co-operation. Other issues on the agenda are increasing the role of women in development, migration, and the need for peace and stability in the two regions. International Relations spokesperson Clayson Monyela said on Monday that South Africa’s participation in the summit was aimed at strengthening the continent’s participation in global issues as an equal partner, as well as gaining support for Africa’s development priorities. “South Africa believes that the summit comes at an opportune time when the African continent is seized with redefining her destiny and role in the globalised world,” Monyela said in a statement. The leaders are taking a mid-term review on the joint action plan, which covers a five-year period from 2011 to 2016, adopted at the previous summit in 2010. The Kuwait Declaration will be adopted at the end of the summit. South Africa’s relationship with Arab states remains cordial, with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates being the country’s biggest trading partners. South African companies such as Sasol and MTN have large investments in the Middle East, including in some countries belonging to the Co-operation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC). According to 2011 statistics, trade between the GCC and seven sub-Saharan African countries amounted to approximately US$16.7-billion. GCC-Africa two-way trade increased from about $2.7-billion in 1990 to about $6.8-billion in 2008. Accompanying Chabane at the summit are senior officials from the Department of International Relations and the Department of Trade and Industry. Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

How (and When) to Use a Steadicam Shot

first_imgFluid cinematic movement has been a staple of filmmaking since the 1975. Let’s explore the Steadicam shot and learn how to use it properly.Top image from SuperiorPicsA few weeks back, we explored some stabilizer options in the article, Questions to Ask When Picking a Camera Stabilizer. Now let’s look at one of those stabilizers a little more in depth.Just about every film and video production made today at some point will make quality use of Garrett Brown‘s invention known as the Steadicam. And why not? It’s an amazing tool to have at your disposal. But as is the case with any creative tool, there’s a time and place to use it. So we’re going to take a good look at when and how to use a Steadicam for both film and video productions.Who is This Garrett Brown Anyway?Since we evoked the name of Mr. Brown in the opening, it’s only fair to tell you a little about him before we move on. Working in Philadelphia, Garrett Brown began his filmmaking career in the early 1970s. However, Garrett wanted to be able to move with the camera without the use of dolly track or cranes. So he set out to figure out how to make a rig that would allow him to move with the camera and capture a smooth shot.By 1975 he had developed a prototype of the Steadicam and sold it to the first company he showed it to. To get a quick look at how Brown’s invention has revolutionized the industry, here’s a great supercut of the very best Steadicam shots in film history, some of which we’ll breakdown further.Video from Refocused MediaWhen to Use the Steadicam ShotNow, while you could use a Steadicam for an entire film or video production, the question is why would you? The fluid motion of the Steadicam is great and looks fantastic, but there are plenty of times in a film when it would be better to put the camera on sticks. Just like we said in the opening, there is a time and place for using the Steadicam and we’re going to give you some examples of those moments.Scorsese and the Goodfellas Steadicam ShotIn this scene from Goodfellas, Martin Scorsese uses the Steadicam to take the audience on a full tour of what it’s like to get the star treatment as a gangster. Our impression of the scene mirrors that of Karen, who is getting her first taste of the mob life with Henry.Steadicam Operator: Larry McConKeyVideo from 805BruinWere Gonna Fly Now with RockyIn this scene from Rocky, the director John G. Avildsen wanted to show Rocky going through his training regime without using static shots of him running by the camera. He wanted the movement and pacing to match that of Rocky as he was making his way from the shipping yard to the iconic shot on the steps of the Art Museum.Steadicam Operator: Garrett BrownVideo from MovieclipsDanny, his Tricycle and the Girls in the HallFor this scene from The Shining, Stanley Kubrick had Garrett Brown follow young Danny’s tricycle ride around the hotel. Just moments before the scene below starts, the framing of Danny was tight and close… but when we get the kitchen hallway, Danny gets some distance, which Kubrick uses as a way to convey that he is now drifting off on his own. We then follow Danny in a hallway where he turns the corner and is met by the Grady twins.Steadicam Operator: Garrett BrownVideo from MovieclipsDocumentary Style Brilliance in The Tree of LifeOne of the best outcomes of using a Steadicam is total scene immersion. For instance, in Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life, two-time Academy Award Winning cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki worked closely with his Steadicam operator Joerg Widmer to create imagery that felt close and personal. Much like a documentary film. By doing this they pushed the audience into the space with the characters, thus allowing for a more emotional connection. While a large portion of the film was shot using a Steadicam, it works because it has the look and feel of a “fly on the wall” documentary film.Steadicam Operator: Joerg WidmerVideo from Herbert KapfingerHow to Capture a Steadicam ShotYou would think that this is an easy question to answer, right? You just load up the Steadicam and start filming. Well that sounds right in theory, but there is a lot that goes on before you even mount a camera… and that has to do with balance. This is the most important aspect of a Steadicam. Here is a great video tutorial with Steadicam operator Jerry Hol in which he goes through the steps of making sure a rig is good to go, taking both static balance and dynamic balance into accountVideo from steadivisionThe reason you’re using a Steadicam is to capture smooth flowing shots around your characters or subjects, so you need to be creative in how you go about this. You have a wide range of motion when operating a Steadicam, so put that to use for you. Find dynamic ways in which you can improve and enhance the visual narrative. Don’t use a Steadicam just because you can. Be sure there is a reason for using it versus just putting the camera on sticks.Joining Forces with the 3-Axis GimbalOver the last few years we’ve seen the introduction of the 3-axis gimbal rig, and many peoplesaid it would be the end of the Steadicam. Just don’t say that to Garrett Brown and the heads of Freefly, creators of the MoVI 3-axis gimbal. Here Teradek gives us a great interview with Garrett Brown and the folks from Freefly at NAB 2014, where they talk about the possibilities of combing the benefits of the Steadicam and the MoVI 3-axis gimbal.Video from TeradekDo you operate a Steadicam? Are you looking to get into Steadicam work? Do you have any tips to give us? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.last_img read more

How You Lose Deals

first_imgThis is how you lose deals.Selling when there is no compelling need: You are not going to win a deal when no deal is possible because your prospective client has no compelling need.Skipping stages of the sales process: Skipping stages of the sales process means not taking the actions you know are necessary to win.Failing to control the sales process: Much of the time your buyer’s process doesn’t serve you. Agreeing to that process ensures you lose.Failing to gain the commitments you need: By failing to get the commitments that you know you need you endanger your deal and increase the odds of a loss.Failing to create value for your prospect during sales calls: It’s difficult to gain a commitment that moves an opportunity forward if you haven’t done the work to deserve that commitment. You do that by creating value for your dream client in every interaction.Focusing on low levels of value in your solution: Unless you’re calling on an end-user, the lower levels of value in the features and benefits of your product are not compelling enough to get you a win.Failing to elevate the discovery conversation to strategic: Without identifying the strategic outcomes worth pursuing, you make a “no” more likely.Not developing a compelling case for change: The most difficult sale you make is the compelling case for change. Without a compelling case for change, you lose, or you get a no decision.Transactional behaviors: Transactional behaviors are behaviors that make your prospective client feel as if all you were trying to do is get a quick close. There’s no focus on value creation. Unless what you sell should be sold transactionally, this will kill your deal.Choosing to communicate using lesser mediums: The most important conversations you have should be held using the best and most effective medium. This is NOT an email. And it will cost you an opportunity.Being self-oriented: The more that your prospective client feels that your motive is about your commission check, the more likely you are to lose that deal.Failing to identify the buying committee: In small sales, you may be dealing with a single decision-maker. But in larger, more complex business-to-business sales, that is unlikely. If you don’t identify the stakeholders and understand their needs, you end up with a big L.Failing to build consensus: One of the easiest ways to lose an opportunity is to fail to create consensus within the stakeholders that will eventually vote on whether or not to choose you and your solution.Not tailoring the value to individual stakeholders: It isn’t easy to give each stakeholder what they need in a solution, but without customizing the value to the different stakeholders you are unlikely to gain their support. This often results in a loss.Not dealing with obstacles: There are all kinds of obstacles you need to overcome on the way to a deal. These can be barriers that prevent your solution from being acceptable. An obstacle might be a single human being. Without addressing these obstacles, you jeopardize a “yes.”Selling without a conversation about money and budget: At some point, you have to talk about the money. You have to be willing to talk about the investment your prospective client needs to make to get the results they want.Focusing on price: Believe it or not, you can lose opportunities because you are so focused on price when you should be focused on creating value in a solution.Solving the wrong problem: If the customer tells you exactly what they need to address the problem, and you present something different without having gained agreement that that was the right answer, you lose. You need to solve the right problem to win.Presenting poorly: “Show me that picture of your corporate office and the image of your executive management team.” Said no one, ever.Presenting a solution that your client hasn’t already said “yes” to. There is no reason that your prospective client should be surprised by what you show them in your presentation. That’s a “no.”Allowing the customer to believe price and cost are the same thing: Your dream client thinks price and cost are the same thing unless and until you do something about it.Failing to justify the delta between your price and your competitor’s price: Your price is higher for a reason. If you can’t explain that reason, you don’t deserve to win.Failing to provide the necessary proof: If your dream client needs you to provide evidence of what you have said and what you promised, you need to provide it. Otherwise, it’s a loss.Trying to match your competitor’s price or strategy: If your competitor has a lower price, that may be their strategy, but it isn’t yours. You have to play your game, not theirs.Poor deal strategy: If you haven’t tested the ideas that you believe make up your strategy with a red team, you aren’t anticipating how you might lose. Without toughening up your deals, you risk a loss.Correct these and you’ll win so much you might get sick of winning. But I doubt it.last_img read more
