MINISTER’S DELIGHT AT JOBS BOOST AS KILLYBEGS TO GET WORLD’S LARGEST MARINE FOOD PLANT

first_imgDeputy Joe McHugh: Welcoming the Killybegs jobs boostMinister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Simon Coveney has warmly welcomed plans by the Killybegs Fishermen’s’ Organisation (KFO) and a Norwegian partner, to build the largest marine food ingredients plant in the world in Killybegs.Donegal Daily revealed the plans last night.The plant, due to become fully operational by the 1st of January 2017, will produce valuable high- end marine protein for human consumption. It’s expected to create up to 120 new jobs.The Minister said: “This facility will become a ‘game-changer’ in the seafood sector. It will position Killybegs and Ireland as a global leader in supply and research around new products and benefits from protein, oils and calcium associated with the sea.“This new processing facility arises from the new boarfish fishery which was developed by Irish fishermen over the past few years.“In 2012, the EU introduced quota shares for the stock and Ireland secured 70% share of the fishery and has a quota of 88,000 tonnes in 2014. I am delighted that the new food ingredients project will maximise the value of a significant part of this fishery and centre the associated economic activity and jobs in the heartland of Ireland’s fishing community.” Minister Coveney said “These plans are at an early stage and discussions are underway to finalise the full funding of the project. I look forward to the successful conclusion of these negotiations and to a formal announcement of this project in Donegal. KFO Chief Executive, Sean O’Donoghue, has invited me to Donegal to announce specific details of the project on 9th May which I’m very pleased to accept subject to successful conclusion of the on -going discussions.”The Minister is attending the BIM National Seafood Conference today in Dublin. The focus of this conference, attended by seafood business leaders, global industry thinkers and world renowned fisheries experts is ‘Capturing Ireland’s share of the global seafood opportunity.Minister Coveney said: “We all need to challenge our thinking and inform ourselves of best international practice so that Ireland will be able to position itself to maximise its share of the global seafood opportunity. Ireland may currently be a small player in the context of world seafood, however, given the huge resources around our coast it is clear that we should have major ambitions for sustainable growth of our seafood sector. This Conference will contribute to making these ambitions a reality and the Killybegs food ingredients projects shows what can be done.”Donegal TD Joe McHugh says the Killybegs development is a result of the hard work of the government in Europe to secure greater quotas.“It’s a superb boost for Killybegs,” he said, “coming as it does just a few days after the new Coast Guard station was officially opened by Minister Varadkar.” Pat The Cope Gallagher also welcomed the jobs.Pat the Cope was centrally involved in introducing legislation in the European Parliament in 2011, which facilitated the exploitation of the boar fishery by ensuring the use of the most appropriate fishing gear type.This helped Ireland to secure 70% of the Total Allowable Catch for the entire fishery. It would not be possible to establish such a facility, if not for the exceptionally high quota which Ireland secured. This is in no small measure due to the years of exploratory fishing by a number of vessels in the Irish Pelagic fleet, according to Pat the Cope.Pat the Cope has paid tribute to the KFO for attracting an international partner specialising in bio marine ingredients. “This is a welcome jobs boost for Killybegs and the County of Donegal which will result in the creation of up to 50 jobs during the construction phase and a further 70 direct and indirect jobs when it goes into full production,” stated Pat the Cope.MINISTER’S DELIGHT AT JOBS BOOST AS KILLYBEGS TO GET WORLD’S LARGEST MARINE FOOD PLANT was last modified: April 2nd, 2014 by John2Share 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)Tags:jobs boostKFOKillybegsprocessing plantsealast_img read more

We will take our chances and win, vows Phala

first_img23 January 2015Bafana Bafana midfielder-cum-striker Thuso Phala says they are prepared to fight to the bitter end to get out of the deep hole they find themselves in.Phala was referring to the 1-3 loss to Algeria in the opening clash of the CAF Orange Africa Cup of Nations Equatorial Guinea 2015 touranment on Monday at Stade de Mongomo.The result has put South Africa in a difficult position to qualify for the knock-out stages.“The dressing room was sad,” he said. “We were very disappointed because, in all honesty, that was a game we were supposed to win and by a big margin. We let the coach down, we let ourselves down and the country down – but it is important for us to forget about the game as soon as we can so we can focus on the challenge ahead.Lessons“The lesson we got out of this match is that we have to take our chances, because if we miss them we will be putting ourselves under pressure. We could have wrapped that game early,” said Phala who scored South Africa’s solitary goal in that match.Bafana Bafana will be hoping for a positive outcome when they face Senegal on Friday, 23 January, at the Estadio de Mongomo.Coach Ephraim Shakes Mashaba has made two changes to South Africa’s starting 11. Jackson Mabokgwane will start in goals in place of Darren Keet, who played against Algeria in the opening match that Bafana Bafana lost 1-3.Playing in front of Mabokgwane will be the back four of Anele Ngcongca at right-back, Thabo Matlaba at left-back, and the central defence pairing of Erick Mathoho and Thulani Hlatshwayo.Coetzee outMathoho returns after a one-match suspension following two yellow cards in the qualifying stages of the tournament. He takes the place of Rivaldo Coetzee, who is out due to a knee injury sustained in the match against Algeria.Both Mathoho and Mabokgwane are playing in their first Afcon tournament.The midfield remains unchanged with Dean Furman, Andile Jali, Oupa Manyisa and Thuso Phala, who scored South Africa’s only goal in the opening match, given the nod. Furman will once again captain the side.Tokelo Rantie and Sibusiso Vilakazi also retain their places upfront.“We all come from teams who have lost games before; we have all been in a hole before,” Phala said. “We came together as players and spoke about it. We keep motivating ourselves because we know we are a good team and we will come back strongly in the remaining two games.”Bafana play Ghana in their final Group C match on 27 January.Kick off is at 9pm SA time (8pm local time) at Stade de Mongomo. How they will line up:SA XI vs Algeria: 22-Jackson Mabokgwane (GK), 6-Anele Ngcongca, 11- Thabo Matlaba, 14-Thulani Hlatshwayo, 3-Eric Mathoho, 15-Dean Furman (C), 5-Andile Jali, 20-Oupa Manyisa, 18-Thuso Phala, 10-Sibusiso Vilakazi, 23-Tokelo Rantie.Subs: 16-Darren Keet (GK), 1-Brilliant Khuzwayo (GK), 21-Ayanda Gcaba, 13-Thamsanqa Sangweni, 19-Themba Zwane, 12-Reneilwe Letsholonyane, 7-Mandla Masango, 8-Bongani Zungu, 17-Bernard Parker, 4-Siyabonga Nhlapho, 9-Bongani Ndulula.Injured: 2-Rivaldo CoetzeeAFCON 2015 FIXTURESAll times CAT (SA, GMT+2)Friday 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 5 February 2015Quarterfinal 2 Winner v Quarterfinal 3 Winner – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 9pmSaturday 7 February 2015Semifinal 1 Loser v Semifinal 2 Loser – Nuevo Estadio de Malabo: 8pmSunday 8 February 2015Semifinal 1 Winner v Semifinal 2 Winner – Estadio de Bata: 9pmSource: South African Football Associationlast_img read more

Why All Directors Need to Take Up Acting

first_imgIndie film directors today have largely become more concerned with gear, effects, and post-production than with story and acting, which is one reason so many indie films fail to have any success. While the technical side of filmmaking is critical in today’s filmmaking environment, it is raw performance that will always be what captivates audiences most.It’s interesting to look at how many high budget blockbuster films have completely failed over the last few years, and how many small independent films have done better than ever. This summer the film ‘Boyhood’ which is an experimental drama has done exceptionally well at the box office, while huge films like “Edge of Tomorrow” are unable to break even. While there are many factors that contribute to this situation, I would suggest that the largest of them is the lack of emphasis on story, character, and most importantly performance. Not all blockbuster films are flops, and they certainly aren’t all bad. It’s interesting though to recognize that big blockbuster hits like Chris Nolan’s Batman films, had a heavy emphasis on character and performance, and ultimately those elements helped to elevate and compliment the technical and visual aspects of the film.Image from TrivialMattersYou might think that it’s only on the large scale blockbuster films where these issues occur, and where performance has become a lost art. But truthfully, I see it happening more than ever in independent film today which is likely a direct result of the easy access to equipment and knowledge. Just about anybody can pick up a camera today, learn how to set it up on YouTube and then go out and shoot something that looks half decent. But that certainly doesn’t mean their film will be strong or that the most important ingredient will have been delivered on – the performance.It goes without saying that for a film to be successful a certain level of quality must be there in terms of production value, and of course story as well. But I would argue that performance is the single most important element for any given film, and unfortunately as I mentioned above – probably the most overlooked element too. Films with flawed scripts, but great performances can still be successful – take a look at August Osage County for an example of this dynamic. That film had some problem areas in regards to the script and structure (it really was better suited for the format of a stage play), but exceptionally strong performances by the cast helped to make it an enjoyable and memorable film. On the other hand, films with fantastic scripts and poor acting are destined to be flops. It is the actors and their performances that represent the words on the page, so unfortunately no matter how good those words are, without great actors to deliver them they are going to fall flat.This may seem obvious, but unfortunately for many filmmakers today it isn’t. Most independent directors that I talk with don’t know the difference between Meisner and Method. They don’t understand what an actor needs to warm up, how they need to be spoken to on set, and what tools they use to get into character. Without these pieces of critical knowledge, it’s really impossible to communicate with an actor in the best way possible and to get the most accurate performance from them. The good news is, you don’t need to be an expert on acting to understand how actors think – you just need to take some initiative and interest in their craft.I’ve taken a number of acting classes and they have been undeniably the best assets for me as a director, and far more beneficial than anything I’ve ever learned with regards to blocking, cinematography, or screen direction. Earlier on in my career I fell into the trap at least once or twice, of focusing so heavily on the wrong aspects of my productions, and ultimately they were not up to par in my mind because of the lack of attention to performance.In the early days of cinema, a directors job was simply to direct actors. That was it. The DP shot the film, the editor edited the film, and a writer wrote the film. Today, many directors (myself included) do all of these things (and then some) because of the accessibility to technology and the shift in production from a technical perspective. This is all well and good – in fact, I personally love being very hands on with my film work and shooting/writing/editing much of it myself, but never at the expense of performance. If I ever feel that the amount of time or effort that I am putting into any given facet of the production is taking away from time that I could spend with my actors, I will have someone else fill in for me. There is a certain hierarchy in my mind to my approach on set, and at the very top of that pyramid is performance. If I can successfully direct my actors and focus on the cinematography at the same time, I may go ahead and do that. But the moment that I am focusing too much on camera and not enough on talent, it starts to show on screen.My suggestion to any aspiring directors out there, is to simply learn how to act. Take a class here or there and just understand the basics of the craft. You don’t need to be an expert, but you do need to understand the fundamental principles that drive the people that are ultimately representing your film – the actors. While everyone else is struggling to get a bit more resolution out of their cameras, or learning how to use a new piece of editing software, you will be jumping by leaps and bounds by actually focusing on directing – something that many directors no longer do.last_img read more
