Donegal launch for amazing ‘This Man’s Wee Boy’ book

first_imgTony Doherty’s This Man’s Wee Boy, an acclaimed memoir of growing up in the Brandywell area of Derry in the 1960s and 70s will receive its Donegal launch in The Exchange, Castle Avenue, Buncrana on October 7th at 7pm.This Man’s Wee Boy is a uniquely-crafted memoir of the author’s early childhood (1967–1972), the third oldest in a working-class Catholic family from the Brandywell in Derry.Written with the authentic voice of a child, this snapshot of his young life unfolds in a series of stories evoking the innocence of childhood, family dynamic and tensions, street friendships and characters, the onset of civil strife, and a family protecting itself from conflict, with CS gas coming in through the door and tracer bullets flying past the windows.. Described as ‘a treasure’, it draws the reader into a child’s world, his innocent view of the harsh reality of life and the horrifying events unfolding around him.It has bags of humour and paints a picture of a lost world of children running wild in play, unsupervised by or worried over by adults. The book is also very moving, to the point of provoking tears at the end.About the authorTony DohertyTony Doherty was instrumental in setting up the Bloody Sunday Justice Campaign in 1992, which led in 2010 to the exoneration of his father and the others killed and wounded on Bloody Sunday, and to a public apology from the British Prime Minister in the House of Commons. He has worked extensively in community regeneration in Derry, is a member of the Big Lottery Fund’s NI Committee and is currently Regional Coordinator for Northern Ireland’s Healthy Living Centre Alliance. What has been said about the book:‘It’s a wonderful memoir. So simple, so truthful and, at the end, so profoundly moving.’ – Jimmy McGovern, screenwriter“An emotive memoir of childhood and a valuable social history of Derry.” – Freya McClements, Irish Times‘An inspirational memoir. The voice of innocence never slips. I was in awe!’ – Sue Leonard, Irish ExaminerDonegal launch for amazing ‘This Man’s Wee Boy’ book was last modified: September 30th, 2016 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)last_img read more

Underestimate us at your peril, Phala warns Afcon opponents

first_img8 December 2015Bafana Bafana have arrived in Gabon to continue their preparations ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon), Africa’s most prestigious sporting event, which takes place in Equatorial Guinea from 17 January 17 to 8 February.The South Africans’ preparations for the CAF Orange Africa Cup of Nations Equatorial Guinea 2015 tournament, include a warm-up match against Cameroon on Saturday, 10 January, in Libreville.There is also another warm-up against hosts Gabon on the cards, the South African Football Association (Safa) said in a statement on Wednesday.‘Winning mentality’At a press conference ahead of the team’s departure, Safa president Danny Jordaan praised coach Shakes Mashaba for instilling a winning mentality in Bafana Bafana, KickOff magazine reported.“Previously we used to fight for draws in away matches. Shakes has changed that thinking,” Jordaan said.He said 2015 was lining up to be a very challenging year. “We currently have three teams in camp. I can’t remember the last time this happened in South Africa.“Equatorial Guinea is not the end of the road, it is the beginning of the road. We are in a group where only the best are.”Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula urged the team to make the country proud.“The players have come of age. This is a special moment for South Africa. We’re going to Afcon as competitors.“You have restored the pride and glory of the nation. If you win Afcon, it will be a glorious moment.“Go there and make South Africa proud. Our flag and national anthem will be restored among those nations.”‘Favourites’In an interview with Safa on Wednesday, Bafana Bafana winger Thuso Phala said anyone underestimating South Africa would be doing so “at their own peril”.Phala has returned to the national team, having played his last match in March last year against New Zealand in Auckland. Phala, who has been capped 14 times, scored his first international goal last Sunday, 4 January, helping Bafana Bafana to defeat Zambia.“I don’t think we can be seen as underdogs,” Phala said. “Going to the tournament most countries will be more prepared for us because perhaps they have been watching our tapes during the qualifiers … but if the other countries want to see us as underdogs, it will be to their disadvantage.“With the players we have, we booked our place in Equatorial Guinea with a game remaining,” the winger said. “I see us as one of the favourites in our group.”Phala said he believed the most difficult part of the competition was to qualify for the knockout stages. “But once you are through there, it’s anybody’s game.”He said this year the team’s focus will be on qualifying for the next round – “and then we could go all the way”.FULL BAFANA SQUADGoalkeepers: Brilliant Khuzwayo, Darren Keet, Jackson MabokgwaneDefenders: Siyabonga Nhlapo, Patrick Phungwayo, Anele Ngcongca, Thulani Hlatshwayo, Mulomowandau Mathoho, Rivaldo Coetzee, Thabo MatlabaMidfielders: Themba Zwane, Andile Jali, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Bongani Zungu, Thamsanqa Sangweni, Dean Furman, Thuso Phala, Mandla Masango, Oupa ManyisaStrikers: Bernard Parker, Tokelo Rantie, Bongani Ndulula, Sibusiso VilakaziGROUP C FIXTURESJanuary 19 – South Africa v Algeria – Estadio de Mongomo: 9pmJanuary 23 – Senegal v South Africa – Estadio de Mongomo: 9pmJanuary 27 – Ghana v South Africa – Estadio de Mongomo: 8pmAFCON 2015 FIXTURESAll times CAT (SA, GMT+2)Saturday 17 January 2015Equatorial Guinea v Congo – Estadio de Bata: 6pmBurkina Faso v Gabon – Estadio de Bata: 9pmSunday 18 January 2015Zambia v Congo DR – Nuevo Estadio de Ebebiyin: 6pmTunisia v Cape Verde Islands – Nuevo Estadio de Ebebiyin: 9pmMonday 19 January 2015Ghana v Senegal – Estadio de Mongomo: 6pmAlgeria v South Africa – Estadio de Mongomo: 9pmTuesday 20 January 2015Cote d’Ivoire v Guinea – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 6pmMali v Cameroon – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 9pmWednesday 21 January 2015Equatorial Guinea v Burkina Faso – Estadio de Bata: 6pmThursday 22 January 2015Zambia v Tunisia – Nuevo Estadio de Ebebiyin: 6pmCape Verde Islands v Congo DR – Nuevo Estadio de Ebebiyin: 9pmFriday 23 January 2015Ghana v Algeria – Estadio de Mongomo: 6pmSouth Africa v Senegal – Estadio de Mongomo: 9pmSaturday 24 January 2015Cote d’Ivoire v Mali – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 6pmSunday 25 January 2015Gabon v Equatorial Guinea – Estadio de Bata: 8pmCongo v Burkina Faso – Nuevo Estadio de Ebebiyin: 8pmMonday 26 January 2015Cape Verde Islands v Zambia – Nuevo Estadio de Ebebiyin: 8pmCongo DR v Tunisia – Estadio de Bata: 8pmTuesday 27 January 2015South Africa v Ghana – Estadio de Mongomo: 8pmSenegal v Algeria – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 8pmWednesday 28 January 2015Guinea v Mali – Estadio de Mongomo: 8pmCameroon v Cote d’Ivoire – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 8pmSaturday 31 January 2015Group A Winner v Group B Second Place – Estadio de Bata: 6pmGroup B Winner v Group A Second Place – Nuevo Estadio de Ebebiyin: 9pmSunday 1 February 2015Group C Winner v Group D Second Place – Estadio de Mongomo: 6pmGroup D Winner v Group C Second Place – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 9pmWednesday 4 February 2015Quarterfinal 1 Winner v Quarterfinal 4 Winner – Estadio de Bata: 9pmThursday 05 February 2015Quarterfinal 2 Winner v Quarterfinal 3 Winner – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 9pmSaturday 07 February 2015Semifinal 1 Loser v Semifinal 2 Loser – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 8pmSunday 08 February 2015Semifinal 1 Winner v Semifinal 2 Winner – Estadio de Bata: 9pmSAinfo reporterlast_img read more

DuPont Pioneer Introduces New Soybean Varieties with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend Technology

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest DuPont Pioneer today announced 12 new Pioneer® brand T Series soybean varieties with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ technology that will be available for pre-ordering this fall in the United States. The products are being made available for pre-orders in anticipation of a commercial launch of the trait for 2016 planting, pending applicable regulatory reviews.“Pioneer® brand soybeans with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ technology will provide farmers an improved way to manage tough-to-control weeds while delivering the outstanding yield and service they expect from Pioneer,” said Steve Reno, DuPont Pioneer vice president, regional director – U.S. & Canada. Soybeans with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ technology will enable applications of labeled dicamba herbicides, pending herbicide registration, as well as glyphosate herbicides. Dicamba herbicides will provide farmers a new way to manage tough-to-control and glyphosate-resistant broadleaf weeds such as waterhemp, marestail and palmer amaranth.“DuPont Pioneer sales, agronomy and seed production teams have been gearing up to launch the new trait in Pioneer soybeans,” said Reno. “We will have the agronomic data to help our customers get the right products on the right acres to meet their needs and the product volumes to support what we anticipate to be the largest soybean product launch in our history.”Soybeans with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ technology are approved for food, feed and cultivation in the United States and Canada. Sale and delivery of Pioneer® brand soybeans with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ technology will be completed once applicable regulatory reviews are concluded.Reno noted that if Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ technology is not commercially launched in time for the 2016 crop year, Pioneer expects to have good supply of other elite soybean varieties to meet the needs of its customers who have pre-ordered varieties with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ technology.AUDIO: The Ohio Ag Net’s Ty Higgins visited with DuPont Pioneer’s Business Director Randy Minton about the launch of new soybean varieties with RR2X technology.Ty’s Wrap for Fridaylast_img read more

Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netNLEX has found itself in a 0-2 rut in the start of PBA’s Philippine Cup, but coach Yeng Guiao firmly believes that they just need time to recover their confidence“We just turned the ball over too many times. We had 23 and three or four of them came in the crucial part of the game,” Guiao told the press shortly after the Road Warriors lost to NorthPort Batang Pier on Sunday night.ADVERTISEMENT Guiao, though, clarified that he is not talking the loss lightly. He said matter-of-factly that he is disappointed. But in the same breath, he said that his squad isn’t waving the white flag just yet.“We’re bound to get better,” Guiao said. “We’re staying positive. We’ve improved on our rebounding which was a really bad [part of our play] in the first game.“We’re a bit better with our execution of plays, too. We were close but again, the problem is that we committed our turnovers in a crucial part.”Guiao hopes that the game on Wednesday heralds the turnaround he and his team is waiting for.“We have two more games [on deck]—on Wednesday and Sunday. If we can start winning again, I think all we need is a little time to regain our confidence.”ADVERTISEMENT NLEX faces listless sister team TNT first before going for Columbian next.
