Letterkenny’s Cathedral Quarter committee will host its first ever AGM this Tuesday, 24th March in Dillon’s Hotel, Main Street, Letterkenny at 8pm.Letterkenny’s Church LaneThe committee is actively seeking new members to help build on the momentum that has been generated to date. Everyone is welcome and membership costs €5.The Cathedral Quarter originally began as the Save the Church Lane campaign and since its formation last year, the project has gone from strength to strength in its efforts to regenerate the historical Church Lane and surrounding areas. Last week, the committee had a highly successful St Patrick’s Day, hosting the Cathedral Quarter’s first ever Church Lane concert. The Cathedral Quarter committee also took part in the parade alongside Letterkenny Community Heritage Group, marking the first collaboration between the two groups. Thomas Brogan from the Community Heritage Group had some wonderful costumes and the committee is already looking forward to next year’s event.Committee member Donnan Harvey said: ‘Our first ever Church Lane Concert was a huge success and we would like to thank all who took part including the Letterkenny Senior Accordion Band – LSAB, Maria Mc Cormack Singer/Songwriter, Finnian O’Donnell, Sinead Gallagher and Irish dancers Maria McKinney and Kayleigh Barry. We’re already planning more concerts for later in the year’.Adding to this, Donnan said: ‘The Cathedral Quarter is delighted to announce that we have submitted a bid for a grant from The Heritage Council. We are seeking funding so to prepare a conservation plan for the area. Our group would like to thank Duncan McLaren from Dedalus Architects for his help in submitting the bid. We are also grateful to Dessie Larkin, the town centre manager, Toni Forrester from Letterkenny Chamber and Anne McGowan from Letterkenny Tidy Towns for endorsing our bid’.Donnan continued: ‘We are also part of another exciting proposal for a Cross border project based on conservation and architectural projects. Mary Kerrigan from Derry has asked to be part of a ‘Streets Alive’ initiative and we will be teaming up with Chamberlain St and Fountain St in Derry as we examine ways to regenerate our streets. Although we have different backgrounds, we all share something in common, because we want to re-energize our areas – a goal that is very achievable in time. We hope that the Council looks favourably on our proposals as it would really help kick-start our project’. The long term goal for the Cathedral Quarter is to create a hidden treasure in the heart of Letterkenny for locals and tourists to enjoy.

HOUSTON – Draymond Green fell and his head slammed hard on the ground.That moment did not just capture Green feeling in a state of pain. It marked the latest back-and-forth he has had with Rockets guard James Harden in the Warriors-Rockets playoff series.First, Green had injured Harden’s eyes in Game 2 after delivering an inadvertent elbow. Then in the Warriors’ eventual Game 4 loss to Houston on Tuesday, Harden took a 3-pointer over Green before his left arm struck Green’s left shoulder and …
19 August 2015South African golfer Brendan Grace says he is not backing down as one of the world’s top contenders in professional golf.The 27-year-old finished third in this year’s final golf major – the PGA Championship – held at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin, United States from 13 to 16 August. Grace put himself in contention with a remarkable 64 on 15 August, but shot 69 the next day.His score was 15-under par, five shots behind champion Jason Day of Australia and two behind the US’s Jordan Spieth. “I’m getting closer in the majors, which I want to do,” Grace said in an interview published on the Sunshine Tour’s official website. “I feel that the game is keeping up and the standard of golf that I’m playing is showing. And I don’t have to step down for these guys.”Grace has two wins on the European Tour and in the Dimension Data Pro-Am on the Sunshine Tour in the bag.His reward – besides the satisfaction of knowing he belongs in the rarefied company of the world’s best players – was his own little climb in the Official World Golf Rankings to 20th, just seven spots behind the top-ranked South African player, 2010 Open champion Louis Oosthuizen.The sense of belonging is a critical contributor to why he has had such a good year: “I think you just kind of relax as you go into the major weeks now,” said Grace.“I just told my caddie Zach [Rasego] as we were walking up 18, it’s amazing how these weeks turn out. My first two rounds of golf weren’t spectacular at all and I just grinded away and look where I finished up.“I made a couple of silly mistakes around the turn. That disappointing double bogey on the 10 got me back, too far back.”He admitted that Day was a tough competitor this week. “He played some marvellous golf and I don’t think anybody would have caught him this week. But if those silly mistakes weren’t in there, you never know what could have been at the finish.”Grace’s year is already a success. He can relax and chase victories wherever he chooses now, and get himself up for a renewed attempt to unlock the door to a major victory next year.“This year after Augusta, my approach to the majors been a lot quieter,” he said. “I’ve been much more relaxed and I’m just taking it as it comes, really. Play maybe one, maybe two practice days and just go with it. And I think that’s been a key to getting to where I am.”He was not the only South African taking part in this year’s final major. George Coetzee was the second best placed South African, finishing on 12-under par after shooting 67 in the final round at Whistling Straits on 16 August.Ernie Els finished tied for 25th on 5-under par, while Louis Oosthuizen (-4) and Charl Schwartzel (-3) were further back. The other South Africans competing in the event – Tim Clark, Rory Sabbatini and Johan Kok, who was born in South Africa – had missed the cut.Source: News24Wire
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio Department of Agriculture announced that eight land trusts, four counties and 15 Soil and Water Conservation Districts will receive funding to help preserve farmland across the state. These organizations will receive allocations from the Clean Ohio Fund to select, close and monitor easements under the Local Agricultural Easement Purchase Program (LAEPP).LAEPP sponsor organizations will accept applications from Ohio landowners interested in selling an agricultural easement on their farms. A total of nearly $8.5 million will be made available in this funding round. Local sponsors have been certified to accept applications in 34 counties. Interested landowners should contact the certified local sponsor in their county for application details.The program allows landowners to voluntarily sell easements on their farms to the state of Ohio. The easement requires the farm remain permanently in agriculture production. Selected farms must be 40 acres or more, actively engaged in farming, participate in the Current Agricultural Use Valuation program, demonstrate good stewardship of the land, have the support of their local government and not lay directly in the path of development. Landowners may use the proceeds of the easement in any way they wish, but most reinvest it in their farm operations.Funding for the program is derived from the Clean Ohio Conservation Fund, approved by voters in 2008. When combined with easements from all programs, 449 family farms in 59 counties have collectively preserved more than 73,500 acres in agricultural production.

What gets to define “passive house”?In their accompanying comments, most of the signatories seem to have no problem with PHIUS’s plan to modify criteria for the colder parts of North America, though they agree with Robinson’s contention that, should PHIUS modify its criteria, marketing the revised standard as “Passive House” would create confusion.“ ‘Passive House’ is not a trademark or brand, but it does have a recognized meaning internationally and in the U.S.,” wrote Greg Duncan, an architect and certified Passivhaus designer based in Brooklyn, New York. “I believe that if PHIUS starts certifying buildings that do not meet this standard, they should use a different term.” UPDATED 4/5/2012 with new blog linksProduct names, program names, brands, and logos can be potent symbols of identity, so much so they’re often at the center of all kinds of marketing initiatives, corporate litigation, and cultural iconography. For people in the building industry, the term “passive house” – or Passivhaus, as we call it here – has come to mean a specific performance standard, and some say that if the criteria behind the standard are loosened to accommodate, say, climate conditions, a name other than Passive House (or Passivhaus) should be used.That is the core idea of a petition that has been circulating on the Web since March 16 via SignOn, a petitioning tool sponsored by civic action group MoveOn.org. Hayden Robinson, an architect and certified Passivhaus consultant based in Seattle, launched the petition to suggest to Passive House Institute U.S. – which has been examining data from 100 PHIUS-certified projects and fielding comments from the building community about possibly relaxing the Passivhaus standard for some projects in extremely cold climates – that the group’s initiative, while worthy, should proceed with a name other than Passive House. Several of those who signed the petition are in Western Europe, a few are in the U.K. and Canada, and at least one is in Australia. Multiple standards would create confusionHere’s the text of the petition: “The Passive House building energy standard is widely recognized in North America and internationally. In the United States, the standard is used by hundreds of businesses and professionals, and its criteria are maintained by a number of certifying agencies offering services across the country. In its blog post, ’15kWh is dead. Long live 15kWh,’ PHIUS publicized a plan to create its own certification criteria and promote them using the Passive House name. PHIUS’s desire to innovate is commendable, and the larger conversation around potential improvements to the Passive House standard is healthy; however, having multiple standards competing under the name Passive House would create confusion and controversy. We therefore ask PHIUS to distinguish its program by giving it a distinctive name.” RELATED ARTICLES Redefining Passivhaus The Passivhaus Institut in Germany Disowns Its U.S. Satellite The American Passive House Institute Responds to Dr. FeistRound 3: Wolfgang Feist Discusses the PHI-PHIUS SplitPassivhaus Combatants Continue To Speak OutPossible Relaxation of Passivhaus Standard Stirs Debate PHIUS Tries to Trademark ‘Certified Passive House Consultant’PHIUS Draws a Line in the SandA Bridge Over Passivhaus Waters Katrin Klingenberg respondsPHIUS director Katrin Klingenberg told GBA she regards the petition as a “pretty normal response to our proposal for change” – a response, she said, that stems in part from misunderstandings about PHIUS’s study of building science and building performance as it relates to climate zones in North America.“We haven’t been doing our best to communicate what we’re doing more clearly,” she said, noting in an e-mail that PHIUS’s data analysis “will address climates that are very different from the central European climate. Some climates might see a slight relaxation in the annual energy target (Duluth, MN, very cold), some will see a tightening (San Francisco, CA, much milder). It only makes sense to not make Passive House cost-prohibitive/impossible in very cold climates.”Klingenberg also wrote, “Modifications will be in line with critiques of Passive House from leading building scientists and energy experts in North America like John Straube, Marc [Rosenbaum], Martin [Holladay], etc.”Klingenberg pointed out that in dry, sunny climates of the sort found in New Mexico, hitting the annual energy target could lean less on superinsulation and more on the output of a solar thermal system.“Modification doesn’t change the core value of PH,” she wrote, “it only makes it more accessible and cost-effective, and enhances its chance to become mainstream (without compromising comfort and envelope). It makes it the best it can be.” Discussion heats up in the blogosphereSeveral bloggers have chimed in on this dispute, including:Mike Eliason of Brute Force Collaborative: On Peti- & Certifica- tionsLloyd Alter of Treehugger: A Plague On Both Their Passive HousesAndrew Michler of Inhabitat: Passive House Debate Heats Up Mike Eliason again: Monitoring the Petition FalloutMatt Hickman of Mother Nature Network: Active AggressiveRoger at the EdgewaterHaus blog: When is a Passive House NOT a Passive House?
Sagnol urges PSG to go for Liverpool midfielder Keitaby Paul Vegas9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Bordeaux coach Willy Sagnol believes PSG should move for Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita.PSG are in the market for a new midfield signing as a replacement for wantaway Adrien Rabiot.And Sagnol says: “With (Marco) Verratti, you have a player who is very good technically, able to organise the game from deep. But he needs a player with a large volume of play at his side. “Naby Keita (Liverpool) is a player who knows how to do everything, who recovers balls, can also project with and without the ball. Verratti and Keita could form a beautiful duet if we assume that (Thomas) Tuchel retains his defence with three men behind.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Liverpool boss Klopp insists Keita close to top formby Paul Vegas2 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists it wont be long until Naby Keita hits his full stride.The Guinea international put in an impressive cameo in last Sunday’s draw with Manchester United and is expected to start against Genk on Wednesday.Asked when fans can expect to see the 24-year-old’s best form, the manager replied: “Soon.”I don’t know when he will start but Naby is one-and-a-half or two weeks in full training roundabout. And he looks good in training, really good.”They all look good in training, that’s why we made the changes that we made [at Old Trafford] because we really knew they can have an impact in that game. I was really happy.That was the best news of the whole day – not the result, not the goal we scored, which was nice – but that these three guys, very important players for us, in a moment when it’s not easy to have rhythm or get rhythm when you don’t play that much, can perform like this in a game.”In training I see it a lot, so that was the best news. It will not be long anymore.”
INDIANAPOLIS – APRIL 03: Head coach Mike Krzyzewski of the Duke Blue Devils gestures as he coaches in the first half against the West Virginia Mountaineers during the National Semifinal game of the 2010 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship at Lucas Oil Stadium on April 3, 2010 in Indianapolis, Indiana. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)No. 4 Duke defeated Georgia Tech 72-66 at home last night. The victory gave Blue Devils head coach Mike Krzyzewski his 423rd career ACC victory, surpassing Dean Smith for the most all-time. After the game, Krzyzewski addressed the crowd as part of a ceremony honoring his 1,000th-career win, which came against St. John’s on Jan. 25. As part of the tribute, the Duke players all wore “Coach 1K” shirts, with the number 1 embedded as part of the letter K. Krzyzewski touched on both milestones during his time on the mic, and thanked the Cameron crowd for its support. There might not be any more coach in American more synonymous with his program than Krzyzewski is with Duke basketball. Pretty cool moment.
