Their support has been very much appreciated.“This is a critical time for the aviation industry as it is faced with the worst crisis in its history. If we are to get aviation off the ground in a meaningful way then the industry will need a stimulus package to allow it to survive and ensure that vital connectivity, suspended due to COVID-19 is restored.“Airports like Shannon are the lifeblood of regional economies, supporting tourism, hospitality, indigenous and FDI jobs through the air services that bring tourists to the region and allow businesses to trade globally while living locally.“We would hope that the National Economic Plan due to be published in November, will provide this much needed stimulus to support the airline industry.”Commenting on other measures in Budget 2021 the spokesperson said: “We welcome the extension of the Employment Wage Support Scheme and the commercial rates waiver which are very important supports for businesses across our region.” Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Advertisement Roisin Upton excited by “hockey talent coming through” in Limerick
Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 28, 2018 at 4:09 pm Contact Billy: [email protected] | @Wheyen3 Digna Strautmane entered Sunday’s game with a career high of two made 3s in a game. Her new career high after Syracuse’s win over Boston College: five.“Got her going early, she got some good looks and she knocked them down,” SU head coach Quentin Hillsman said.Syracuse (17-5, 5-4 Atlantic Coast) picked up its first ACC road win, 75-57, over Boston College (6-15, 1-7), behind a career-high 25 points from Strautmane. All four of the Orange’s conference losses have come on the road. But four first-half 3s from Strautmane made sure that wouldn’t become a winless 5-for-5.“We needed that,” Hillsman said. “We were starving for one.”SU has struggled on the glass at times this season, but the Orange crushed BC on the glass on Sunday at Conte Forum. Syracuse tallied 16 offensive rebounds to the Eagles’ five, and won the overall rebounding battle 38-25.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse hit its “target number” of 3s in the game, 10, Hillsman said. SU is 11-1 in games it makes at least 10 3s.Boston College never led in the game. Syracuse led by as much as 25. SU pulled away behind a big second quarter from beyond the arc. Strautmane canned three 3s in the frame and Gabrielle Cooper added two of her own. The Orange won the second quarter, 21-10, and led by 14 points at the half.Strautmane was joined in double figures by Tiana Mangakahia and Amaya Finklea-Guity. Mangakahia scored 19 points to go with seven rebounds and nine assists.Finklea-Guity, a freshman playing near her hometown of Dorchester, Massachusetts, scored 11 points and added six rebounds.“She had a really good crowd, high school team was there, all of her family was here,” Hillsman said. “It was good for her to come out and have a good showing coming back home.”Syracuse entered the game at Boston College undefeated at home in conference and winless on the road. Behind a career day from Strautmane, the latter half of that is no longer true. SU has a road conference win. Strautmane has new career highs in points and made 3s.Now officially in the second half of its conference schedule, Syracuse is off the schneid on the road.“It’s just about growing up, we have a very young team, playing on the road is tough,” Hillsman said. “The more experience we can get playing on the road, the better off we’re gonna be.” Comments

14 June 2009South African athletes struggled to make an impression as foreigners once again dominated the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon in Cape Town on Saturday, with John Wachira of Kenya and Elena Nurgalieva of Russia claiming the men’s and women’s wins respectively in the 56-kilometre ultra-marathon.Zimbabwe’s Marco Mambo, after wins in 2004, 2005, and 2008, was the man to watch, with his previous record of success. His win in 2008 was the fourth in five years for Zimbabweans; Moses Njodzi won in 2006, while Bethuel Netshifhefhe won for South Africa in 2007.Like a wise veteranWachira, meanwhile, was contesting the Two Oceans Marathon for the first time, but the man from the famed Rift Valley, ran the race like a wise veteran, timing his run perfectly to catch Mambo near the end and pass him with the finish in sight.He crossed the finishing line in three hours, 10 minutes and six seconds, with Mambo in second place 46 seconds behind him. Third place went to Mpesela Ntlotsoeu. Butiki Jantjies, in sixth, led the South African challenge.The Nurgalieva twins were the hot favourites to win the women’s race. Elena had previously won it twice, in 2004 and 2005, while Olesya’s win in 2008 was in the second fastest time ever recorded in the race, 3:34:53, trailing only the record set by Frith van der Merwe in 1989 of 3:30:36.Comfortable and enjoyableRunning together, the sisters ran what they described as their most comfortable and enjoyable Two Oceans ever.They finished in 3:40:43, their slowest time yet in the event, but enough for a huge margin of 18 minutes over third placed Samukeliso Moyo of Zimbabwe.Maybe they were saving something for the Comrades Marathon, which has been moved forward this year so as not to clash with the Fifa Confederations Cup. It takes place on 24 May.While the Nurgalieva twins opted to contest the Two Oceans Marathons, a number of other leading runners chose to skip it because of the limited five-week break between the country’s two leading ultra-marathons.SA’s bestSouth Africa’s best performer was Farwa Mentoor, who claimed fourth place in 15 seconds less than four hours, while Adinda Kruger ended fifth in 4:03:36.Mentoor has been South Africa’s most consistent ultra-marathon performer for many years now. Before Riana van Niekerk finished sixth in the 2008 Comrades Marathon, two places ahead of her, Mentoor had been South Africa’s leading runner for six consecutive years.Stephen Mokoka was the sole South African to be crowned champion. He captured line honours in the men’s half-marathon, finishing eight seconds ahead of runner-up Wirimai Juwawo in 63:42. Lusapho April was third in 63:55.Namibia’s Helaria Johannes won the women’s half-marathon in 73:34. Over two minutes behind her, Mamarolla Tjoka claimed second place, with Tabitha Tsatsa in third. Annerien van Schalkwyk, in fourth, was the leading South African.RESULTSMEN 56-KILOMETRE ULTRA1. John Wachira 3:10:06, 2. Marco Mambo 3:10:52, 3. Mpesela Ntlotsoeu 3:11:56, 4.

Oracle’s new offerings are graphical utilities that allow both end users and ISVs to create pre-packaged virtual machines, and they’re free to boot. One is open source and based on Oracle Enterprise Linux JeOS (Just enough OS). The other is for Oracle’s Siebel CRM, and to top it all off its an extension of the Validated Configurations program for testing a stack for deployment.JeOS, which was originally thought up by Canonical, basically means that users can whip up just enough of the Linux stack to support a particular set of applications. That allows both a high level of customization, but it’s a system still backed up by enterprise-class support from your vendor, in this case Oracle. The availability of a VM template builder means developers can create these slimmed-down implementations of Oracle Enterprise Linux (but not other versions of Linux) within a VM image. While Oracle is mostly touting it as a graphical utility, you can work from the command line too, if you’re familiar with JeOS scripts. The proprietary counterpart of the new VM template does much the same thing, but for Siebel CRM instead of Linux. All three offerings are free at this point, though a license is required to actually use Siebel CRM. These releases come on the heels of Oracle acquiring the proprietary Virtual Iron, which it later killed, and this is the first big step into virtualization for Oracle since then.
