Donegal author going digital for second book launch

first_imgDonegal-based author Sharon Thompson is planning a book launch with a difference when she releases her second novel ‘The Healer’.Sharon Thompson’s previous debut novel ‘The Abandoned’ was a bestseller on Amazon and in her latest novel, ‘The Healer’ she tackles the subject of healing.The book will be launched next Tuesday, 22nd January.

I’m convinced that busy people will engage with more online events and gatherings in the future.”However, Sharon does love a good party and although her launch will be online via crowd-cast, she says, “Book launches can be stressful, but I am determined to enjoy the 22nd January and have fun.” Sharon began writing some years ago for a change of direction in life.

11th World Cup soccer tournament: All eyes are on Argentina

first_imgIf this is June 1978, there must be football in the air. From the coffee fields of Brazil to oil-rich Iran, from industralized Germany to Third World’s Tunisia, from Europe, Asia and America all eyes are on Argentina, the scene of the eleventh World Cup soccer tournament. Fifteen nations from,If this is June 1978, there must be football in the air. From the coffee fields of Brazil to oil-rich Iran, from industralized Germany to Third World’s Tunisia, from Europe, Asia and America all eyes are on Argentina, the scene of the eleventh World Cup soccer tournament. Fifteen nations from across the globe, “armies” bristling with zealous optimism are battling for honours in the four-yearly soccer jamboree that grips the world for nearly a month.Can ageing West Germany retain the cup that their superstar captain Franz Beckenbauer won for them at Munich in 1974? Can the Brazilians aspire to new levels of soccer magic? Will home advantage see the hosts through? Right from its inception in 1930 the game has set new levels of Latin American fanaticism.The Uruguayans, the hosts, in that inaugural year were celebrating a century of independence. Their opponents in the final were Argentina, old rivals from across the turgid, churning waters of the River Plate. Ten steamers were chartered to take the Argentinian fans across to Montevideo. People were packed abroad like cattle, but thousands were left behind.Brazil’s captain Rivelino (left) leaves Kasperczak of Polland behind on the way to goalThere were protest marches in the streets of Buenos Aires as they demanded more boats. Then, as the steamers left, thousands of fans lined the quayside chanting “Victory or Death”.Uruguay won 4-2, their last goal being scored by a one-armed reserve called Castro, and the country went delirious with joy. The brooding Argentinian supporters stormed the Uruguayan Consulate back in Buenos Aires, complaining of brutality and unfair refereeing, and police had to fire to disperse them. The World Cup had been launched….advertisementSince then it has been a kaleidoscope of contrasting styles and skills – a confrontation between the artists of Latin America and the methodical men of Europe, whose style and form can match the best blend of individual flair the Latin Americans can produce.In Argentina ’78, the odds are loaded against the iron men from West Germany, the holders. They are without superstars Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Mueller and Wolfgang Overath. Training matches and their first outing in the tournament – a goalless draw against Poland – indicate that the holders have slender chance of emulating Brazil, who have won the cup thrice.Can Argentina, playing at home in front of frenzied crowds vociferously rooting for them, pull it off? On six occasions out of ten World Cup championships held so far, the host nation has reached the final, and, of these, four have won. The Argentinians are temperamental players.They can be brilliant on a day and totally devoid of their basic skills on the next. The other temperamental team, the Italians, star-studded as they usually are, suffer from the big handicap of their top men not being able to play the same game on two successive days.This World Cup may lack the dynamism and artistry of Pele, Cruyff and Beckenbauer, but clearly, it is not devoid of soccer talent. Among other, Holland’s Rob Rensenbrink has risen as one of the outstanding wingers in the world.Brazil has never lacked the ability to produce brilliant footballers. Along with the 1970 World Cup veteran Roberto Rivehno, the Brazilian team boasts of a powerful forward-line with Reinaldo and Zico. The presence of Cerezo and Nelinho in the midfield and defense provides a balance which may once again win the championship for Brazil.The West Germans, though depleted without Beckenbauer, Mueller and Overath, still have Rainer Bonhof, the man who changed West Germany’s fortunes in 1974 and Sepp Maier, whose experiences in the 1970 and 1974 World Cup tournaments will surely be useful.The Argentina attack is again led by 23-year-old Mario Kempe. Four years ago, when he played for his country in West Germany, he provided entertaining football, making good use of his physique and speed. Since then, he has matured into a prolific goal-scorer which makes him fearsome to defenders and goalkeepers alike.THE JUNTA: WARNING WHISTLEArgentina’s military junta holds a veritable threat for soccer fans in the country.Two years ago, Gen Videla, after a successful coup, launched a crusade against terrorists by killing those persons who did not conform to the ethics of civilization. In the process, many people ‘disappeared’, and ‘why’ was a question, which no one dared to ask.Now, this malaise is spreading into the realm of sports. Only a few day before the start of the World Cup, the junta warned that soccer fans in Argentina are “likely to be shot on sight” if they fail to respond to army orders.advertisementIt appears, that the rulers in Argentina, not unmindful of the “Munich massacre” and recent bursts of terrorism in West Germany and Italy, are determined to have the tournament completed without any awkward incidents.The monteneros, the country’s urban guerillas have promised peace during the competition, but this has scarcely reassured the junta. The omnipresence of troops, with fixed bayonets, is evidence that the military rulers of Argentina have certain ideas about security, which may not be relaxed before the championship is over.last_img read more

Taylor opens new wastewater lift station

first_img“We appreciate the joint effort between the Province and the Government of Canada to help rebuild our critical infrastructure,” said Taylor Mayor Rob Fraser. “To receive approximately a million dollars for our rural community is a tremendous support for our sewer infrastructure. This funding will help the future needs of our community, and I want to thank the Province and the federal government for this significant contribution.” The lift station has a pumping capacity of around 22 litres per minute.

The project is the third of four phases of the District’s sewer upgrades.“The Government of Canada is very proud to have contributed to the construction of this new lift station for the District of Taylor,” said Infrastructure and Communities Minister Amarjeet Sohi. “We are committed to investing in infrastructure that helps build cleaner, stronger and more sustainable communities. This project is an impressive example of a system that will better serve residents while supporting future growth and protecting the environment for years to come.” “The safe movement and treatment of wastewater is not something people always want to talk about, but it is essential for the health and wellbeing of communities,” said Municipal Affairs and Housing Minister Selina Robinson. Thanks to this partnership between all levels of government, people in Taylor have a new, efficient lift station that will improve the way they treat wastewater in their community for years to come.” TAYLOR, B.C. – The District of Taylor held a ribbon-cutting ceremony this afternoon for a new $1.2 million wastewater lift station facility.Lift Station 3 was funded by contributions from both the federal and provincial governments, as well as from the District itself.

Medina – July 17, 2019 The Manchester United manager wants to end the speculation that the Frenchman is leaving the Red Devils.“Hooligans do not exist anymore in English football and all the countries who suffer from this thing take England as an example to solve the problem.Bielsa said: “You don’t have this kind of thing in football. It doesn’t exist because the authorities don’t allow it.
