Hundreds of householders and business owners in and around east Donegal today (Sun) are without water again following a burst pipe between Ballindrait and Tober. It is understood that Irish Water are currently at the scene addressing the issue.It is expected that the normal supply will return around 4pm on Sunday. Cllr Gerry Crawford told Donegal Daily: “The water from Ballindrait to Tober has burst and is off again this morning.“This is the norm here burst to fix, burst to fix, which results in no water supply to the community in these areas, who rightly feel that their right to a water supply is being completely ignored.“Irish Water has been informed and will repair but the necessity is clear. (They have to) replace the water pipe (and) treat this community with respect.”Anger as residents left without supply yet again following water burst was last modified: September 22nd, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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)
6 March 2012South Africa’s Kevin Anderson captured the second ATP Tour title of his career on Sunday when he defeated Australia’s Marinko Matosevic 6-4, 7-6 to win the Delray Beach International Championships. Previously, Anderson lifted the South African Open title in Johannesburg in 2011.“It feels fantastic. It’s my first one in the United States, which is great,” Anderson told the ATP Tour’s website.“I feel apart from South Africa, this is my new home. My wife Kelsey was here for the weekend.”Former winnersFormer winners of the title include, among others, Lleyton Hewitt, Stefan Koubek Tommy Haas, Mardy Fish, and Juan Martin del Potro.The victory lifted Anderson up to 30th in the world rankings and came not long after he had slipped a little to 37th a month ago after being sidelined by an injury.The tall South African was seeded seventh for the tournament in Delray Beach and had to overcome some tough matches to make it through to the final. It all began relatively easily with a 6-4, 6-1 over Austin Krajicek, but in the second round Anderson faced Xavier Malisse, the champion in 2005 and 2007. The match went to three sets, with Anderson claiming a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 victory.Wonderful contestIn the quarterfinals, Anderson faced fourth seed Andy Roddick. In a wonderful contest, the South African star fought back from a set down and saved three match points on his way to a superb 2-6, 7-6 (11-9), 6-4 win.Anderson’s reward was a semi-final showdown with top seed and world number 11 John Isner. Like the showdown with Roddick, the match pitted two big servers against one another.Tie-breakerIt proved to be a very tight contest, but Anderson broke Isner once in the first set and the big American served a double fault in the second set tie-breaker, which was enough for Anderson to triumph 7-5, 7-6 as Isner dropped a tie-breaker for only the second time in 11 tie-breakers this year.Anderson faced Marinko Matosevic in the final after the Australian became only the second player in the 20-year history of the event to make it through qualifying to the title-decider. The Croatian-born player had scored some impressive wins himself on his way to the last two.He solved the problem of the big-serving Ivo Karlovic in the first round, winning 6-3, 6-4, and then defeated sixth-seed Alexander Bogomolov 4-6, 6-1, 6-3.Winning streakIn the quarterfinals he saw off 2010 champion Ernests Gulbis 3-6, 6-1, 6-1 to set up a semi-final match against Israel’s Dudi Sela. After a very hardfought contest, Matosevic emerged a 5-7, 6-4, 7-6 victor to take his winning streak to 12 matches.After his victory in the final, which lasted just short of two hours, Anderson said his mental approach had played a big role in his success. He told the ATP Tour: “I think at the end, I felt I was mentally composed throughout [the tournament]. I didn’t let any patches of bad tennis affect my mindset [this week].”‘I think we have done well’On court, after receiving the winner’s trophy, Anderson paid tribute to his coach, Louis Vosloo, saying: “Thanks for all the patience. Each day I try to work as hard as I can. I know I can be pretty difficult sometimes, but I think we have done well, so let this be the second [title] of many.”He also thanked his parents for the opportunity that they had given him to play tennis and thanked his wife of three months Kelsey, whom he met when both were students at the University of Illinois.“Thanks for coming out, I love you, and I’m so glad you were here to share this with me,” Anderson said to her.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Three undertrial prisoners facing charges of dacoity escaped from police custody while being taken to Silvassa from Thane Central Jail in Maharashtra for a court hearing, an official said on Thursday. The accused, Jairam Dalvi (21), Ganesh Dalvi (20) and Martin Madha (30), were arrested last year by Silvassa police in the Union Territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli and subsequently lodged in the Thane prison, senior police inspector Vilas Chowgule said. On Tuesday, while the prisoners were being taken for a court hearing in Silvassa, they complained of nausea and got down from the escort van on Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway near Vasai in Palghar where they gave police the slip, he said. The escort team later approached Valiv police here and lodged an offence against the accused under Indian Penal Code Section 224 (resistance/obstruction by a person to his lawful apprehension).The three prisoners were facing several cases of dacoity in Thane, Palghar, Mumbai and Gujarat, Mr. Chowgule said. A manhunt has been launched to nab the absconding accused, he added.

Hurricane Jose Not A Threat to The Bahamas, For Now Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppSalutation….It is said that, “yesterday is already a dream and tomorrow is only a vision. But if today is well lived it makes every yesterday a reflection of satisfaction coupled with happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope.”A very good afternoon to each of you as we celebrate the 2nd Annual Straw Vendors Appreciation Day!As Minister with responsibility for the Straw Market Authority, I am proud of my association with such a powerful and influential group of proud Bahamians.I do not know of any other single group of Bahamians who love their job so much. When addressing the concerns of the Straw Market Authority, I am reminded that our lives are filled with simple joys and blessings and one of the greatest joys in life is to have a job that you love. That would be the job of our vendors.It is truly a splendid thing to create beautiful work that brings joy to others. People just love beautiful things!Recently, I presented gifts to the president of New Zealand and his wife on behalf of the people of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. These gifts were indigenous Bahamian items made in this Straw Market by a Bahamian straw vendor and a wood carver. I beamed with pride while presenting.Vendors ought to be happy and know how privilege they are to be working in an environment that is always full of excitement… especially as so many countries are so unsettled and full of turmoil.Honourees, the joy that you have given to others through your craft is coming back to you today. We love you, respect and appreciate you for all that you have done and continue to do.Brotherly love is a fruit in season at all times and within reach of every hand. I admonish you to create a peaceful work environment, showing love to neighbouring vendors and visitors. If only we could learn to love like God… for God loves each of us as if there was only one of us.I have charged the Straw Market Authority to work with straw vendors ensuring that 90% Bahamian made products be sold from the markets in the near future, with the ultimate goal of 100%. In achieving this feat, you will cause there to be an increase in the amount of straw practitioners and crafts people, the net result being more jobs created for Bahamians.Joy come from simple and natural things: a clean environment together with honesty, integrity, respect and good manners should all be practiced to become normal and natural characteristics.Today as we recognize some vendors for their stability and service to the straw and wood carving industry, it is truly our sincere way of showing gratitude and giving thanks for what you have done and continue to do; bringing them into clear focus.When we celebrate the years behind us, they become strength and joy for the years ahead.I challenge each of you to make the remainder of 2014, and all of 2015 a new beginning of something great in your life. Continue to create a positive culture within the various straw markets that visitors are anxious to experience. All vendors are encouraged to get involved and strive to get all visitors to our shores to purchase goods from our straw markets. In doing so, please adhere to the rules of the Straw Authority.Another realistic goal should be to raise your standard in the ensuing year. I guarantee you that it can easily be achieved. You must never be happy to settle for mediocrity.You are encouraged to be vibrant, energized, visualize, improve your product, become motivated and invigorated.To all vendors, I say that you are privileged to occupy a booth. You are renting space that others are appealing for daily. Therefore, create your own ideal space, with thoughtfulness and cleanliness being of paramount importance.Having a well organized booth within your boundary gives you the freedom to decorate tastefully and present your products creatively.“A space for everything and everything in its place.” Decorate with purpose, to keep your space beautiful and clean.Vendors, even when you are complaining about business affairs, dress appropriately. Take personal pride and care in how you present yourself to the world. Your craft is your life insurance, control your destiny.To the Board of Directors, Management and staff, I commend you for having had a very productive year. The Straw Market Authority’s new secret ingredient is self-sufficiency. By developing a cohesive team spirit you have become more spontaneous and flexible in your business relationship with vendors.Once again I say congratulations to all honourees. Good Morning…Enjoy your day!

Fusing together some of the finest works from well established artists, the art exhibition at All India Fine Arts and Crafts Society aims to serve the audience a visual bonanza. Titled Genesis-18, the art show will be held from June 1-7. Genesis-18 is an exposition by 34 artists in a manner that traces a timeline of developments in style, themes and schools of what has emerged today as Indian contemporary art.The striking feature of the works of the participating artists is the manner in which they straddle diverse cultures whilst still voicing the present context of Indian social, cultural and political life. The canvases provide an introspective and sometimes uneasy glimpse into modern India, yet are collectively global in their presentation. This exhibition is a recognition of and respect for the influential antecedents of this genre of art. Clearly, the map has changed as these works demonstrate figurative and abstract, impatient yet unhurried, ancient spirituality fused with modern culture.It is amazing to discern the similarity in the direction of thoughts of all artists, coming from diverse milieus and diverse backgrounds.
