The following seconds saw Australia score the opening goal of the match in the 3rd minute as Ogilvie managed to get the final touch.      The 8th minute saw Mandeep Singh win a penalty corner for India, but the resulting execution was wasted as Nilakanta Sharma could not trap the ball properly.

Mitton found himself in a great position on the right side of the striking circle as Joshua Simmonds played a great pass to him, and Mitton turned and fired the ball past PR Sreejesh into the back of the net to make it 3-1 after 24 minutes.      In the 29th minute, Gurinder Singh was dubiously fined for a push inside the 16-yard line by the umpire, and the resulting penalty corner saw Blake Govers fire a shot past Sreejesh’s left side into the back of the net to make it 4-1 at the half-time.     The third quarter saw Australia maintain possession but were not able to create any opportunities in the opening few minutes.      The 40th minute saw Blake Govers run down the right flank beating a few defenders but could not keep his shot on target, while on the other end, India struggled to stitch passes together.     In the 43rd minute, Armaan Qureshi had a glorious chance to score India’s second goal but Johan Durst made a fine save on his left side, and it was Australia who managed to score on the counter as Tim Brand pushed the ball past Pathak to make it 5-1 with just one quarter to play.     India needed to score heavily in the last quarter and they tried to create chances but the Australian defence made sure that they did not give them space in the circle.      It was only in the 53rd minute that India managed to score their second goal as Rupinderpal converted a penalty corner as he fired the ball past Durst’s left side to make it 5-2.

How can you have only one favourite place in Donegal?(2) How do you like to spend time off in the county?On a beach on horseback, although I haven’t been able to do that for a while. I’ll be back at that this summer hopefully.I’m quite content jumping in the car & letting the roads take me where they will. There’s always a gorgeous view or a great place for a bite to eat just around the corner.

He was kind, generous, doted on Mammy & his children & grandchildren and was absolutely always, always full of mischief.(4) What do you think is Donegal’s best tourist attraction?Grianan of Aileach without a doubt. There’s something very grounding in standing in a place built thousands of years ago.It’s still very under-rated, given that it’s so historic, and is aligned to the solstice, apart from by those of us fortunate enough to be from there of course. I’m glad to see there’s a bit more care being taken of it now, I’d like to see a tour guide there during the summer going forward.(5) Do you prefer Donegal summers or Donegal winters?Summers!

A Caribbean Island Transitions to PV

This article is only available to GBA Prime Memberscenter_img Most of the electricity generated in the U.S. comes from power plants that burn coal or natural gas. Although an increasing percentage of our electricity comes from photovoltaic (PV) arrays and wind turbines, there are two problems with these renewable energy sources. First, electricity generated by PV arrays or wind turbines is still somewhat more expensive than electricity generated by fossil fuel plants (although the cost of solar and wind continue to drop). And second, solar power and wind power are intermittent, so some type of energy storage system is necessary if these sources of power are ever to replace fossil fuel plants.These days, electric utilities are operating in a rapidly changing regulatory and economic environment. As the price of solar power and wind power continue to fall, investments in solar and wind facilities are looking better all the time, while past investments in coal plants and nuclear plants are beginning to look, in retrospect, like big mistakes. Moreover, an increasing number of countries are establishing goals to reduce the use of fossil fuels, and some are even establishing carbon taxes that effectively increase the cost of coal and natural gas — tipping the scales in favor of solar and wind.As fossil fuels become more heavily taxed, and renewable energy sources get cheaper, eventually the cost lines on the graph are going to cross. At some point, solar and wind power will become the preferred sources for electricity.In fact, on small islands, the lines have already crossed.My wife Karyn and I recently spent a weekend on the island of St. Eustatius in the Caribbean, enjoying two of our favorite pastimes: snorkeling and hiking. St. Eustatius is part of the Netherlands.On our second day on St. Eustatius — or Statia, as most locals call their island… last_img read more

Google Glass Shows Off Upcoming Apps: Path, NY Times, Evernote & Skitch

first_imgThe Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … taylor hatmaker Tags:#Google#Google Glass#Project Glass#SXSW 2013 Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Photos by Taylor Hatmaker. Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Beyond what we’ve seen so far in the official videos and demos using Google’s own suite of products, Google Glass will also be getting some big-name third-party apps. At a somewhat last-minute event announced for SXSW 2013, Developer Advocate Timothy Jordan spoke to a room hungry for more intel about Google’s buzzy wearable tech, Project Glass. While he didn’t reveal a launch date, Jordan did say Google Glass has been working on an app with the The New York Times. The re-thought news reader app lets Google Glass wearers visually scan headlines and have stories read aloud with the device’s built-in speaker, which only Glass wearer can hear.Path will be another early entrant to the Glass app marketplace. Path is a social feed designed around tracking your life and sharing what you’re up to with your inner social circles. While a great many people don’t seem to know what to do with Path, its “in the background” ethos seems to make it a natural fit for Google Glass.There’s more than just news reading and social apps, too. Google said that productivity darling Evernote (and its image-snapping partner, Skitch) will also tie into Glass, letting wearers share and annotate images all while syncing them seamlessly with their accounts. Take a sneak peek of the first wave of Google Glass apps in the photos below: last_img read more
