THE BEST WEDDING PRESENT EVER AS MISSING FREDDIE THE PUG IS FOUND!

first_imgHappy couple Kevin and Laura McDaid recently had the most perfect wedding.Kevin and Laura on their wedding down – without Freddie the Pug!But there was one very special guest missing from the nuptials.As they walked down the aisle, they couldn’t help thinking of their beloved pet dog Freddie who went missing just days before the ceremony. Freddie, a black pug, had vanished from outside the couple’s home in Letterkenny on May 25th last.And despite a massive search and exhausting every avenue looking for Freddie, loving Kevin and Laura had resigned themselves to the fact that they may never see Freddie again.The couple married at St Eunan’s Cathedral and then had the most amazing wedding with 400 guests at the Mount Errigal Hotel on June 14th.They went on honeymoon with Freddie still in the backs of their minds. However while the well-known DJs soaked up the sun and their first days as Mr and Mrs, a lot of work was going on in the background.Unbeknown to them, a dog matching Freddie’s description had been found at a market in Cavan.Save some cake for me! Freddie is home even if he did miss the big wedding!A couple got in contact with a friend of Laura and despite a Skype call, friends of Laura and Kevin could not be 100% sure it was him.In stepped Donegal Pet Rescue who loaned Kevin’s brother Brian their Microchip Scanner to check if it was indeed Freddie.And two hours later Freddie’s true identity was confirmed. Kevin and Laura were told the brilliant news with just a couple of days left of their honeymoon.There were truly emotional scenes when the happy couple were reunited with their “baby.”Laura said “We had the most amazing wedding and everyone was so good to us.“But as much as we tried we couldn’t help but think of what happened to Freddie and where he was. “We can’t even describe how we felt when we got the call that Freddie was safe and coming home. We were speechless.“Our life together is now just perfect – now that Freddie is back.”THE BEST WEDDING PRESENT EVER AS MISSING FREDDIE THE PUG IS FOUND! was last modified: July 15th, 2014 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:DOGDonegal Pet RescueFReddieKevin McDaidLaura McDaidletterkennyPuglast_img read more

WITNESS HEARD LAST WORDS OF DONEGAL MAN BEFORE HE WAS BATTERED TO DEATH

first_imgTHE trial of two men accused of the racially aggravated murder of a Co Donegal man has heard how his last words were heard over a mobile phone.Asif Rehman, 20, and Adel Ishaq, 19, are on trial in Kilmarnock for the killing of William McKeeney, 57, in a street in Pollokshields in Glasgow.William was from Malin Head and had been living in Glasgow with his partner. Yesterday witness Imran Khan, 19, told the court he had a call from Ishaq before the alleged attack.He said he heard Mr McKeeney ask: “Is there a problem here, lads?”He said: “I answered and said ‘hello’ but there was no reply. I could hear their voices talking in English.“They were running with that shaking, windy noise although it wasn’t a windy night. They sounded drunk and hyped.”Mr Khan said he recognised Mr McKeeney’s voice. The Donegal man was his neighbour.He said: “It was an Irish voice and my first thought was that it was Willie’s voice.“I heard the Irish voice saying, ‘Is there a problem here lads? What’s the problem?’”.Mr Khan told the court: “I didn’t look outside my window because I didn’t know it was happening outside my house.”The witness said that about five minutes later Mr Ishaq phoned back and asked where Mr Khan was.“He said it very aggressively and it was like whispered shouting, like he was hiding somewhere,” Mr Khan added.He said Mr Rehman then took the phone and warned Mr Khan not to walk out as they had just “splattered” someone outside his house.Mr Khan admitted giving a statement to police in which he refused to supply names.Asked why that was the case by advocate depute Tim Niven-Smith, Mr Khan said: “Because I didn’t want to be a grass.”Mr Khan flinched as he was handed a picture of Mr McKeeney lying dead in hospital. Mr Niven-Smith told him: “You are here to give evidence.”Mr McKeeney died at the city’s Victoria Infirmary.Mr Rehman and Mr Ishaq are alleged to have repeatedly punched and kicked William, and stamped and jumped on his head and body.The prosecution allege William was attacked because he was white.WITNESS HEARD LAST WORDS OF DONEGAL MAN BEFORE HE WAS BATTERED TO DEATH was last modified: October 6th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:WITNESS HEARD LAST WORDS OF DONEGAL MAN BEFORE HE WAS BATTERED TO DEATHlast_img read more

England star excited to show the world his talent against Tunisia

first_imgHarry Kane says he can’t wait to show the world what he’s got as England prepare to take on Tunisia at the Volgograd Arena on Monday night.The Three Lions skipper said he was looking forward to showcasing his talent in England’s opening match against Nabil Maâloul’s men in Group G. 2 Harry Kane performs his media duties as England captain Kane said: “The last few years I’ve improved and now I’m here, and I can’t wait to get out there and show the world what I’ve got.“Obviously all the fans are back home watching and we want to make them proud.”The striker hopes to be awarded the Golden Boot when the tournament wraps up next month, joking that Cristiano Ronaldo had put him “under pressure” after scoring three goals against Spain on Friday.He said: “I’ve got a lot of scoring trophies in my career. I’d like to be sitting here with a big gold one in a few weeks.“He [Ronaldo] has put me under a little bit of pressure for sure. He’s a fantastic player and had a fantastic game but as always for me it’s about concentrating on myself and the team.“Hopefully I can score a hat-trick tomorrow and we’ll be level, but it’s not something I’ll think about much until hopefully towards the end of the tournament.” 2 The England skipper said he also hoped to win the golden boot Kane was confirmed as England’s captain ahead of the tournament and is relishing his role as team leader.“I am enjoying it for sure,” he said. “For me, not a lot changes. I am still the same person, the same team-mate.“Maybe I’ve been scoring a few more goals in training. I am proud to be England captain and can’t wait to get going.”He added: “The team are all very close. We’ve done a lot of stuff for the fans so they can see what we’ve been up to and that’s not always been the case. It’s about doing it on the pitch first and foremost.”England have only ever met Tunisia twice and the teams haven’t faced each other in two decades.

MYSTERY AS DONEGAL’S ICONIC BASKING SHARKS DISAPPEAR FROM OUR COAST

first_imgThe huge Basking Shark is usually found in Donegal waters in summer months.One of Donegal’s most unusual summer visitors has disappeared and left scientists baffled as to why.In recent years our waters have become a hotbed for giant Basking Sharks.Hundreds of the magnificent creatures are usually spotted swimming off our coast from Malin Head to Bundoran, with their huge mouths trawling for plankton. The docile creatures have become a favourite for maritime tourists.However there have been unusually few sightings of the creatures which grow up to an average of eight metres long (26ft).Even more worrying has been almost no sightings of the creatures in the normal hotspot around Malin Head up until last week.Scientists investigating the disappearance suspect the sharks may have by-passed Ireland and traveled to the waters off Scotland instead. They believe the sharks may have gorged themselves earlier in the year and traveled to Scotland instead.Emmett Johnston of the Basking Sharks Study Project, who is based in Inishowen, says unusual winds may have pushed the sharks further out to sea.He said “Preliminary investigations suggest that the sharks travelled from Irish waters to Scottish waters after gorging themselves off Slea Head and the Blaskets early in the year.“In previous seasons the sharks have passed close by Malin Head in mid May to early June but this year we believe that the sharks as a whole may have travelled further offshore than previous years because the Malin front was pushed further west than normal by unusually prevalent Northerly winds in the early summer.”A year on year tracking study currently being undertaken by Scottish Natural Heritage and the University of Exeter also suggest this may be the reason for the shark’s disappearance from Irish waters. Scientists are hoping the sharks will return to Irish waters before the end of the summer so they can continue their research about the mysterious creatures.“Our research teams are ready and waiting with lots of new initiatives aimed at discovering more about these iconic animals to further our campaign to gain protection for the species in Irish waters,” added shark expert Emmett.MYSTERY AS DONEGAL’S ICONIC BASKING SHARKS DISAPPEAR FROM OUR COAST was last modified: July 31st, 2014 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:Basking SharksdisapperancedonegalEmmett Johnstonlast_img read more

SA thump NZ to win Las Vegas Sevens

first_img“I’m just so glad for the guys. They deserve this win because they work so hard during training. We were all very disappointed after what happened in Wellington, but they showed great heart, commitment and determination to bounce back and deliver such outstanding performances against Samoa and New Zealand,” said Treu. South Africa were in stunning form in the final with Branco du Preez, back in the side after missing three tournaments because of injury, putting in a stellar performance, scoring two tries and contributing a haul of 18 points overall. Bounced backDespite being hit by injuries, the team, superbly led by Frankie Horne, bounced back in dramatic fashion after a very disappointing tournament in Wellington last weekend, where they managed to win only one of their matches. South Africa become the fifth team to win a title this season, showing just how competitive the World Series is. Afterwards, SA Sevens coach Paul Treu described the achievement of his team as “a huge and gusty performance”. SAinfo reporter Not only did the South Africans register their biggest ever Cup Final win over New Zealand, they also reclaimed second position on the HSBC Sevens World Series log. It was the team’s first Cup success in two years. Their last had been in Scotland in 2011. CreativityChris Dry (2), Warren Whiteley and Du Preez all scored converted tries as South Africa displayed creativity on attack and a solid defence, which never allowed the Kiwis to gain any momentum. Semi-finalsEarlier in the day, South Africa won their semi-final 12-7 against defending champions Samoa, thanks to a try in extra-time by speedster Seabelo Senatla after Cornal Hendricks had scored in the first half. EmotionalAn emotional Paul Delport could not hide his delight after the final whistle. Delport added: “This is huge for us. We put in so much effort back home – there are just no words to describe this winning feeling.” “We set such a high standards for ourselves, we need to come out and perform like that every time,” he said.center_img Two more tries after the interval, scored by Du Preez and Stephan Dippenaar, stretched the South African total to 40 points and out of reach of New Zealand. The Kiwis, however, refused to give up and a late rally saw them scoring three quick tries through Pat Lam, Tim Mikkelson and Gilles Kaka. Their victory in the final was built upon a superb first half after which they led 28-0 against the Series leading New Zealanders, having run in some superb tries. 11 February 2013 “It was just a tremendous fight from the boys.

With Nokia, Microsoft Has No More Excuses

first_imgRelated Posts Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … “[The alienation of smartphone manufacturers] may even extend to tablets, as Nokia will probably now assume the leadership position within Microsoft of designing and building tablets (especially in light of the rumored Nokia RT tablet),” Gold said. “Microsoft may gain a competitive posture against Apple (which in my opinion is vulnerable to attack on this front), but it may not easily achieve what it is looking to do.”Microsoft’s Fate is Now Firmly In Its Own HandsMicrosoft is not going to become a “Devices and Services” company overnight. It takes a long time for a ship the size of Microsoft (and even bigger with Nokia now in tow) to correct course once the rudder is moved. Between the company’s massive “One Microsoft” reorganization, the eventually “retirement” of CEO Steve Ballmer, the integration of Nokia and the naming of a new CEO, Microsoft is going to be in a state of flux for the foreseeable future.  Tags:#Microsoft#Nokia “The steadily diminishing investments by other Windows Phone licensees has left Microsoft with essentially a single bearer of the standard—Nokia—and they now appear poised to adopt a vertically integrated strategy more akin to Apple’s,” said Forrester research analyst Charles Golvin. The question for Microsoft will be whether having Nokia around to build smartphones will extend to alienating its other manufacturing partners that build laptops and tablets based on Windows 8. Nokia has been rumored to build a Windows RT tablet to be released this fall. At Microsoft’s Build developer conference in June, the company showed off a litany of tablets, laptops and dual-mode devices that can essentially be bother laptop and tablet. These came from a variety of manufacturers such as Lenovo, Acer, Dell and others. Nokia will be leading the design of its tablets with its own hardware division going forward, activating Nokia’s well of talent for the purpose.  Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces When it all settles down, though, Microsoft will have all the tools it wants to turn itself into a success… or failure. It will have the hardware designers, engineers, marketing and distribution in house for its smartphones and probably tablets. It will have Windows 8 and its manufacturing partners. It will have its cloud services through Azure and other services like its Office suite of apps. It will have Bing to add as its Web linchpin to all those devices. Add all the legacy enterprise tech (including new additions like Yammer) and Microsoft has everything it needs to transition into the 21st Century of innovation and technology.But no clear guarantee of success. Google has been contemplating the future of the Web, services and mobile devices and has a very competent strategy for the future, with fail-safe mechanisms in place in case of disruption. Apple may be vulnerable on a short term basis to market fluctuations, but is still the singular global powerhouse in mobile devices and computing. Samsung is a wild card manufacturer that can adjust to market conditions on the fly and perform extremely well. Amazon, Facebook, Intel, IBM and others lurk on the edge of big time technology and make billions of dollars doing so. Nokia will be an important piece in the Microsoft machine but just the ability to build your own smartphones does not mean that the company will find victory in the mobile industry. There are just too many external forces to contend with, all of which push the envelope on a quarterly basis.“At the end of the day, Microsoft has to compete on the attractiveness to the end user for its products, and just having a device producer on board doesn’t get them there,” Gold said. The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology dan rowinski Nokia is now a part of Microsoft. When the dust settles, the new Microsoft will have its guns aimed directly at Google and Apple.Microsoft has made a big deal recently of transition itself to be a “Devices and Services” business. Buying Nokia’s device business is the easiest way to make that transition happen in one kit and kaboodle. Microsoft expects the deal to be approved in the first quarter of 2014.Then what?Game Of Phones: Apple Vs. Google Vs. Microsoft Define Next DecadeFirst, Microsoft becomes a vertically integrated device company with the capability to design everything about its mobile products from the operating system to how the hardware looks and runs, along with the manufacturing chops to build and distribute those devices itself. Microsoft didn’t just buy an existing unit and the sales that go with it, but an entire operation that it can integrate top to bottom. Lumia 1020 with Samsung Galaxy S4 and Motorola Moto XThis is just like Apple does with its iPhones and iPads. And like Google has started doing with Motorola and the Moto X smartphone. Nokia as part of Microsoft sets up a direct battle between the three computing giants that will dictate how gadgets are made, used and sold for the next decade.“This acquisition is a clear stepping stone in Microsoft’s transition from a software company to a software-led multiproduct company,” said Forrester research analyst Ted Schadler in a blog post this morning. “Apple pioneered the model of vertical integration in devices: device+software+services. Google quickly mastered it. Microsoft has now proven that it is willing and able to make the tough decisions to make a vertically integrated product a cornerstone of its business model.” Patents Wars: Is Microsoft Weaponized Or Will There Be A Forced Détente?Microsoft strengthened its patent portfolio by licensing Nokia’s 30,000 utility patents and directly acquiring 8,500 design patents. With these patents come all of Nokia’s previous licensing and patent agreements with a variety of companies in the mobile industry including Qualcomm, Apple, Motorola, IBM, LG and others. The patents cannot be ignored and give Microsoft a distinct strategic lift when battling both Apple and Google (and, to a certain extent, Samsung) in patent courts across the globe.Microsoft seems to have taken the opposite route in acquiring the use of Nokia’s patent portfolio than Google did when it bought Motorola in 2011. Google’s acquisition was seen at the time as mostly a patent play, subsuming some 17,000 patents (with 7,000 pending at the time) to defend its Android mobile operating system against lawsuits from the likes of Apple, Microsoft and Oracle.Lumia original lineup from Nokia World 2011Do these patents mean that Microsoft will be on the offensive in trying to limit Apple and Android devices from reaching the market? Probably not, in either the short nor long term. Nokia has successfully navigated the patent landscape without many major court cases (with the exception being with Taiwanese manufacturer HTC) by coming to agreements with the major players in mobile with a variety of licensing deals. Microsoft and Apple also have a mutual agreement to not attack each other on the patent front. So, Microsoft and its cadre of patents could create a détente between Apple, Google and its manufacturing partners and other mobile players. Each have the capability to sue the other over very specific issues meaning that patent lawsuits could become zero-sum battles. “It is about wanting to avoid the potential litigation around monopoly that Microsoft could face (Nokia patents are licensed by many other vendors) and also avoiding the legal hassle of enforcement, since now essentially a holding company (Nokia that’s left over after acquisition) will deal with that,” said mobile analyst Jack Gold of J.Gold & Associates in a note. “Much cleaner just to license the patents without the baggage.”Microsoft’s Place In The Smartphone Manufacturing EcosystemJuniper Research expected Nokia’s smartphone shipment to be 6% of the market in 2013. With the sale not expected to be final until the first quarter of 2014, that number is not going to change substantially. Nokia introduces its first Windows Phones at Nokia World 2011For Microsoft, its Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system has not made huge gains Apple and Android. In the second quarter of 2013, Microsoft had 3.3% of the smartphone operating system marketshare with 7.4 million devices shipped. Android held the global lead with 79% of devices shipped with Apple steady at 14.2%, according to research firm Gartner. The 7.4 million Windows Phones shipped last quarter can be attributed almost 100% to Nokia, if Gartner’s numbers are correct (Nokia-reported sales numbers for the second quarter were squarely at 7.4 million). Microsoft licenses Windows Phone to other manufacturers (Samsung and HTC being the major ones) but none have become popular with consumers. For Windows Phone, Nokia is the one and only partner that matters. Now that Microsoft owns Nokia, there is little reason for other manufacturers to license Windows Phone. Microsoft may try to keep other manufacturers in the fold (the way Google has with companies like Samsung, HTC, Huawei, LG, ZTE even after the Motorola acquisition) but it is more likely that Microsoft will move towards a more centralized process in the same mode that Apple does with the iPhone. last_img read more
