Giant-slaying Ceres will show Tianjin respect, not fear, says Schrock

first_imgMOST READ The Busmen travel to China to face Tianjin Quianjian on Tuesday in a playoff with the winner advancing to the group stage. No Filipino club has gotten this far in the most prestigious club competition in the continent.But for Ceres, the rise has been remarkable considering that the club was just formed in 2012 and played in the now defunct AFC President’s Cup where it failed to progress past the group stage.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“We absolutely deserve the win, and we as a team are so proud of this achievement,” said Ceres midfielder Stephan Schrock. “This is the biggest success for Philippine club history, and I think also the biggest upset in the history of Australian football.”Two goals from Bienve Maranon and another striker from Omid Nazari proved enough for the Busmen to overcome the Roar, prompting the Australian club to apologize for its performance. Even after a tough outing against Shan United of Myanmar, Schrock said the Busmen never wavered in their belief that they can create a stir in the tournament. “We will show them respect as all the other teams we faced, but we have to be fearless and with a clear belief,” he said.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Developer promises land for 2010 school

first_imgCASTAIC – Easing parents’ concerns, a developer vowed Thursday to provide land and public services for Castaic High School in time for a 2010 opening. Parents were worried the campus would be delayed if the housing market slumps further because the high school is tied to the 4,000-home NorthLake development. “The high school is in our first phase of the development,” said Ray Pearl, spokesman for SunCal developers, which recently located to Santa Clarita. “Our No.1 priority is providing the infrastructure for the school; the houses will come second.” Pearl also said Thursday that the much-anticipated environmental impact report for the NorthLake site was available for public review at local libraries and, Pearl said, would be online soon at The Los Angeles County Regional Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the report at 9a.m. April11. SunCal agreed to provide a 60-acre construction-ready site to the Hart Union High School District – something it has to do by March 2008 to complete Castaic High School in 2010. Not everyone was convinced the campus will be ready. “I hate to be pessimistic, but I do not believe we will see a high school in 2010,” said John Kunak, a member of the Castaic school board.

After 99 years, Whittier Paint fading from scene

first_img“We’re going to be real sorry to see him go,” he said. “He’s a real anchor in the Uptown. We hope whatever business comes in and replaces him will be an added benefit.” Whittier Paint has a long history in the city, dating back to 1907, when it apparently was founded by a man named Houser, according to an article by Sherril Neece, Langan’s father-in-law. The paint store originally was located where the Marsden’s Shoe Store on Greenleaf in Uptown is now. Houser eventually sold the store to Ellis Emory, the father-in-law of Bob Downey. Downey and Neece went into business together, opening up West Whittier Paint in 1945. A year later, they purchased Whittier Paint from Emory. In 1950, the two decided to split up. Neece kept Whittier Paint and Downey took over West Whittier Paint. In 1960, Neece moved the business to its current location. Seven years later, Langan entered the picture when he was hired as a stockboy. In 1970, Langan and Neece’s daughter, Susan, married. Today, he and his daughter-in-law, Candice Langan, operate Whittier Paint, where Langan typically puts in 10- to 12-hour days, six days a week. As he nears a June 30 closing date for his store, Langan said one chapter of his life is ending, but a new one is beginning. He and his son, Matt, this year started up a racing business, racing off-road trucks in the desert. “He’s 23 years old, a designer and has all of these great ideas about how he can make better parts and trucks out there,” Langan said of his son. “The whole idea of he and I working together is really intriguing to me,” he added. “Most sons don’t want their old man around. He and I have a great relationship.” But there also are his seven grandchildren, who he wants to see more of, Langan said. Langan said he considered turning the store over to a family member but none wanted it, and he couldn’t find a buyer to sell it to who he could trust to not ruin the business. So instead, he is looking for someone to lease the space. “I’ve come here six days a week for 40 years,” said Langan. “It’s going to be culture shock. It’s going to be a real different experience. “The best part is dealing with the customers,” he added. “I liked the idea of helping people make their houses, rooms and atmosphere better. I’ve developed some great friends over the years.” (562)698-0955, Ext. 3022160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

I gradually took it over,” he said. Now, however, Langan, 58, is closing Whittier Paint, which was originally founded in 1907. Although it lasted for 99 years and through four different ownerships, the store was simply no longer able to compete against the big-chain, home-improvement retailers, Langan said. “I’m just simply tired of trying to compete with big boxes,” he said. “Price-wise, I’ve been able to do it. But the profit margin is less now than it was 10 years ago.” Larry Trujillo, executive director of the Uptown Whittier Association, said Langan will be missed. WHITTIER – Jeff Langan started as a stockboy at Whittier Paint, Wallpaper and Art Co. in 1967, little knowing then that one day he would own the store. After moving away to attend Arizona State University in the 1970s, he got a job at a paint store there and “found I had developed a talent for colors,” he said. After returning to Whittier, Langan wanted to become a teacher but thought the pay was too low, so he went back to work at the paint store at 6531 Greenleaf Ave. in Uptown that his father-in-law purchased in 1950. Eventually, he bought the place. last_img read more


first_imgGARDAI investigating prostitution rings in Co Donegal are targeting online pimps, clients and landlords who let flats for high rents, has learned.Officers are focusing on the Letterkenny area and a number of businessmen they believe are involved in selling mainly foreign prostitutes for sex to local men.Mobile phone, email and computer traces have led gardai to identify a number of local individuals who are making thousands of euro every week from the illegal practice. Prostitutes are flown into Ireland from several eastern European countries.Their pictures and details are available on a number of so-called ‘escorts’ sites.Sources have told us that landlords who let properties in Co Donegal to people they know are using them as brothels could face prosecution.We have also learned that Gardai here are following up a direction from the Garda Commissioner to target men who use the brothels for prosecution.More than 60 men were named and shamed as part of Operation Kerb in Dublin six months ago. The Commissioner has told senior officers to follow that scheme throughout the country.The tactic represents a departure from the Garda’s traditional approach to prostitution, which has usually been to target women selling sex rather than men buying it.Sixty-four men have been arrested and charged by a team of gardaí based in the Bridewell Garda station in Dublin’s north inner city.The arrested men have already been before the courts. A range of penalties were imposed including fines and the Probation Act.Earlier today a court in Derry heard the PSNI have obtained sim cards containing the details of clients of prostitutes on both sides of the border.You can see that story here: YOUR COMMENT BELOW© 2011, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on us on anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comGARDAI HAVE DETAILS OF DONEGAL’S ONLINE PIMPS – CRACKDOWN ON LANDLORDS was last modified: January 19th, 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)last_img read more

5 Options When Shooting Concert Footage for Musicians

first_imgShooting a concert for a solo artist or a band? Here are some tried-and-true approaches you can use to pull the project together.We’ve all been there. You have a friend who plays drums in some killer new band, who found out that you “do film and video stuff” and is begging you to come film his band’s concert next weekend. And, of course, because you want to be a good friend, you agree to do it.How much does it pay? Well, if they’re just starting out, probably nothing, but you can at least get in the venue for free — and maybe a few free drink tickets. If this exact scenario has happened once, it’s happened a thousand times. At this point, it’s just part of the industry. If you own a camera and know how to use it, your friends, family, and loved ones are going to ask you to film — often for free — and you’ll do it more often than not because it’s good experience, and it’s fun. (And you don’t want to feel like a bad person for turning them down.)So, here are five ways to make your concert videos really stand out.(Note: For all the approaches mentioned in this article, recording quality sound and audio are key! Here’s a good article that breaks down some audio tips — including how to hook up to the board and where to put your audio recorders.)1. The Old-Fashioned Camera on a TripodImage via Marochkina Anastasiia.So, your first option is going to be the easiest (read: laziest). Alternatively titled the High School Talent Show Setup, this setup is still a favorite among some filmmakers and videographers. You set up a camcorder in the very back of a venue and shoot the concert as wide as possible. (If the concert footage is for some sort of civil lawsuit, this is what you’d expect to see.)As a style, it’s pretty much the worst. So unless you’re looking to own it and make it ironic, sarcastic, sardonic, or whatever, you might satisfy the minimum requirements of “shooting a concert,” but said friend may never speak to you again.2. The Single TakeOne of my favorite creative approaches could also be called lazy in the sense that it’ll require minimal editing, but it can actually create a much more engaging and fun video. The single-take style is just what it sounds like: you start recording at the beginning of a song and — ideally — move your camera slowly around the performance, highlighting the different aspects and musicians.An even more creative approach would be the “La Blogotheque“ style, where you actually begin your handheld recording far away from the concert (even outside the venue all together), and you make your way inside. When done right, this can be quite engaging — and very vérité. 3. Musician by MusicianIf you have the luxury of multiple cameras (and hopefully multiple shooters), this might be your best option. It’s also definitely the most professional way to film a concert — if you’ve got the budget for it — as it gives you complete flexibility in the edit. Ideally, you’d have one camera on every band member. These camera shots could be static on a tripod or monopod, so they can follow (and adjust focus) as the performer moves around. From there, since you’ll be splicing them all together in the edit, you can have some fun with the cinematography and try different camera tricks like reveals and rack focuses.4. POV Band MemberIn many ways, the GoPro (and other action cams) has changed the way we record concerts. While they don’t record the highest quality (or the most cinematic) footage, their rough-and-tumble design and universal mountability make them very practical for filming from hard-to-reach places.Another style that has sprung up is the point-of-view camera. You’ll most often see this with one of these ridiculous head mounts or sports kits. Since it worked for motorbikers, it didn’t take long for bands to jump on the trend.5. Social Media StylePhoto via  Ververidis Vasilis.These days, if you go to a concert and watch the crowd, you’ll see an ocean of fans holding up their smartphones and taking pictures — and more often than not, recording part or all of the show. Love it or hate it, it’s the way of the world.However, it’s a style you can embrace — if you’re willing to do some legwork to put it all together. While I wouldn’t recommend recording an entire show through Snapchat (which can get pretty annoying), if you can track down some smartphone recordings, it can be a cool stylistic break for a few shots in your video. Or, if you don’t want to track down everyone at the show who recorded on their phones, you can always edit your footage to look as if you shot it on a smartphone.Cover image by Andriy Solovyov.For more videography and filmmaking resources, check out these articles:Tips for Photographers Transitioning to VideographySix Videography Tips for Shooting in Bright Sunlight7 Things You Need to Start Your Own Video Production CompanyIndustry Insights: The Ins and Outs of Real Estate Video Production7 Things All Video Professionals Should Share with Clientslast_img read more

‘PM Modi should take over Railways’

first_imgGoa Congress president Shantaram Naik said on Friday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should stop making empty boasts about his efficacy and take over the Railways portfolio if he wanted to prove his capability as an administrator.In a statement issued soon after 23 people were killed in a stampede at Mumbai’s Elphinstone Road station, the former Goa Rajya Sabha MP questioned the need to spend crores of rupees on the bullet train project when existing rail infrastructure in India was poor. Mr. Naik said, “If Modi takes over the Railways, he will have to judge himself on merit and resign as Prime Minister if a tragedy takes place.” Mr. Naik added, “The Prime Minister who thinks of taking loans worth crores of rupees to start a bullet train has no right to be in office when railway infrastructure is crying for improvement and thousands of citizens sleep on railway platforms and footpaths.”last_img read more

India go down fighting against the Netherlands in hockey at Olympics

first_imgReturning to the big stage after a gap of eight years, erstwhile champions India put up a brave fight before going down 2-3 against the formidable Netherlands in their opening Group B match of the men’s hockey competition at the Olympics in London on Monday.Ranked 10th in the world, the Indians meant business as third ranked Netherlands had to sweat it out to start their campaign on a winning note.The first half, however, did not go according to the script for the Indians as they conceded two goals to go into the breather trailing 0-2.Robert van der Horst (20th minute) opened the scoring for the Dutch with a fierce hit from top of the circle and then Roderick Weusthof doubled the margin nine minutes later, converting a penalty corner.The Indians, however, came out with vengeance after the change of ends and scored two goals within a span of three minutes to level the scoreline.Dharanvir Singh (45th minute) scored India’s first goal after capitalising on a rebound and then striker Shivendra Singh tapped home from close quarters three minutes later after receiving a ball from Gurvinder Singh Chandi.But it was not to be India’s day as Mink van der Weerden converted another penalty corner in the 51st minute to restore Netherlands’ lead.Thereafter, the Indians pressed hard in search of the equaliser which eluded them inspite of getting numerous chances.India will next play New Zealand in their second group match on Wednesday, while the Netherlands will be up against Belgium the same day.advertisementlast_img read more
