Max takes a stand

first_imgThey agreed. “I want people not to have breast cancer,” said the reserved young man with the shocking blond hair. “I don’t want other people to lose their aunties and loved ones.” From that inauspicious beginning, the event has grown from a stand run by a little boy and his family to a nonprofit organization with its own Web site. Max has raised more than $20,000 of his $1 million goal. “I’m going to keep doing it until I reach my goal,” he said. Nickie Igoe said the decision to become a nonprofit organization is to raise more money and be able to allocate funds to other areas beyond research. Up until now, all the money has gone to City of Hope in Duarte and its research programs. “Max wanted to help as many people, it’s in his nature,” his mom said, “so we decided to earmark money to pay for wigs for those who can’t afford them and to set up scholarships for those who have lost their moms to breast cancer.” The family will host “Max’s Night to Remember” from 6 to 11p.m. on Oct. 13 at Ritz Gardens, 11201 First Ave., Whittier. Festivities will include dinner in a casino-like atmosphere and activities such as raffles and live and silent auctions. Tickets are $60 with reservations available at (714) 815-2104 or Max, because of his age, will only be able to attend the dinner portion and make some remarks before the other activities begin. “It’s going to be fun,” he said. “All I want is cancer to be gone.” (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He is planning to set up the lemonade stand today and Sunday at the parking lot of Green Hills Baptist Church, 2200 W. Imperial Highway, La Habra. Max, his parents and other supporters will be out there from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. not only selling lemonade but also raffle tickets for items donated by local businesses. It began innocently enough when then-6-year-old Max asked his parents if he could sell lemonade in the driveway of their home. When they said “no,” the ever-resilient young man asked if he gave all the money to breast cancer research, could he do it? LA HABRA – With innocence and earnest determination, 9-year-old Max Igoe is putting the adage “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” to the test. During October – which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – for four years, Max, with the aid of his parents Mike and Nickie, has opened a lemonade stand with the proceeds going to breast cancer research. He is honoring close family friend Elizabeth Rorman, or “Auntie Beth,” as Max called her. She died from the disease in July 2003 at age 37 after a seven-year battle. last_img read more

first_imgMinister of State Fergus O’Dowd has approved a suite of regulations and bye-laws that will govern the wild salmon fishery in 2014. These will come into effect from Tuesday 1 January 2014 on all Donegal rivers.One river which was open in 2013 – the Owenwee (Ballyshannon) – will be catch and release next year.Minister O’Dowd said: “I am pleased to note that 87 rivers will open for angling activity in 2014. Fifty seven rivers will be fully open while a further 30 will be open for angling on a “catch & release” basis. This will provide opportunities for commercial fishermen and anglers to share this important resource on a sustainable basis. “In 2012 I lowered the cost of fishing licences and I have decided to maintain that price cut for 2014. I am anxious that lower costs will encourage sales of annual licences and incentivise angling tourists to avail of the Ireland’s first-class angling product”, he added.Minister O Dowd received management and scientific advice on the current status of Irish salmon stocks from Inland Fisheries Ireland and considered submissions received through the public consultation exercise. Based on this he has introduced conservation measures for the management of the wild salmon and sea trout fishery in 2014.In all, the Independent Standing Scientific Committee for Salmon (SSCE) assessed 143 rivers and have advised that:-· 57 rivers are open as a surplus of fish has been identified in these rivers; · 30 rivers have been classified as open for angling on a “catch and release” basis only; and· 56 rivers are closed as they have no surplus of fish available for harvest in them.The Wild Salmon and Sea Trout Tagging Scheme Regulations for 2014 are in essence unchanged from the Regulations which were introduced for 2013. A number of minor amendments to the Regulations, recommended by Inland Fisheries Ireland, will provide for more effective administration of the tagging scheme regulations in 2014.Summary of main changes to the management of the wild salmon fishery in 20143 Rivers which were closed in 2013 will open for “catch & release” in 2014 Clonee (Kerry Fishery District), Owenagarney (Limerick Fishery District), Skivaleen (Limericky Fishery District),4 Rivers which were open in 2013 will be “catch & release” in 2014Suir (Waterford Fishery District), Owenmore (Kerry Fishery District), Owenwee (Ballyshannon Fishery District), Owenmore (Bangor Fishery District)6 Rivers which were open for “catch & release” in 2013 will open for harvest in 2014 Screebe (Connemara Fishery District), Bunowen (Ballinakill Fishery District), Owenwee Belclare (Ballinakill Fishery District), Glyde (Dundalk Fishery District), Argideen ( Cork Fishery District), Sheen (Kerry Fishery District)1 River which was open for catch and release in 2013 will close in 2014Owenavorragh (Wexford Fishery District)Wild Salmon and Sea Trout Tagging Scheme Regulations, 2013 for the 2014 seasonprovide for, among other things, the total allowable catch of fish that can be harvestedby commercial fishing engines and rod and line from identified rivers.Conservation of Salmon and Sea trout (bag limits) Bye-law No. 915, 2013 provides for anannual bag limit of 10 fish being either salmon or sea trout (over 40 cm) per angler and provides for a season bag limit of 3 fish in the period1 January to 11 May, a daily bag limit of 3 fish from 12 May to 31 August and a daily bag limit of 1 fish from1 September to the end of the season.

A Practical Guide to Dutch Angles and Tilted Framing

first_imgDebubbleThe most common way is to debubble the camera. This involves unscrewing the ball head and tipping it over to the side. This allows you to continue to operate panning and tilting, as you normally would. The downside is that most ball heads only tilt a couple of degrees, usually not far enough to get extreme angles, or to accurately increase the amount of dutch in your shots.Another way (though many would advise against this) is to shorten one leg of the tripod so that it tips over to the side. This not only emits a sense of danger, it’s actually dangerous, especially for heavier cinema cameras. You need to keep a hand on the camera the whole time to keep it from crashing to the ground. On the positive side, you can slowly shorten the leg so the angle gets increasingly more extreme.Weigh It DownA wooden wedge is a good way to get a steady Dutch angle. Just be sure to secure the camera.A simple and cheap way to get a great Dutch angle is to place the camera on a flat service and put a wedge-like block, or sand bag, under one side of the camera plate. The camera is already on the ground or hard surface, so if it tips over, it doesn’t have far to fall. This is a quick, easy method; however, it doesn’t let you operate the camera while the shot is in motion because you need to remove it from the tripod head.If you’re working handheld, or from a shoulder mount, you can easily achieve a dutch angle by holding the camera more on the side. In fact, the challenge when working like this is to maintain a level horizon, and not to dutch the camera.The Dutch HeadThe Cam Tank is safe and professional way to pull off a Dutch angle.The last, most professional way to get a consistent, controllable Dutch angle is to use a specialized piece of camera equipment called a Dutch head — such as the Cam Tank from Matthews. You can use them right on the ground or install them between the tripod head and the camera. It has specific marks that let you dutch the head precisely, in case you want to slowly increase the amount of tilt from shot to shot, or to match the amount you previously used. You can even dutch in the middle of a pan — though more is often less.For instance, if you shoot wide or medium first, you could add four degrees of tilt. Then, when you push into the close-up, you can push that up to six for the over-the-shoulders, and eight or ten for singles. Using the Cam Tank, when you turn around to shoot the other side of the conversation, you can match this tilt exactly. But, Dutch heads aren’t cheap. The Cam Tank is $1,700, but you can rent one for much less.Regardless of which technique you use, remember to keep a light touch and know that Dutch angles have more of a psychological impact when they’re felt, rather than seen.Want more on filmmaking techniques?

When pressed further whether he would stay with the club next season, he added, “Hopefully yes.””There are no concerns. The club is a professional club. We do things correctly. I work for a very good owner (Parth Jindal) and a very good management. The only concern to be honest is that I am an ambitious coach. Like any player, if Manchester United come in for (FPAI Indian Player of the Year) Jeje (Lalpekhlua), he is not going to stay at Mohun Bagan and thats football,” he said candidly. Asked about the Indian national teams poor ranking on the FIFA chart (162 as of now), Westwood was diplomatic and said it was “disrespectful” for him to comment on national coach Stephen Constantine.”Its not my job. I dont want to insult the coach. He (Stephen Constantine) doesnt comment on Bengaluru FC and I dont comment on India. It is disrespectful. Its his and Mr. Patels business, not mine. Ill do my job and let them do theirs. Its not under my umbrella, its under Mr. Constantines. Hes working hard and doing a good job. Thats fine with me,” said the 39-year-old.Asked for a response whether he would take up the national team coachs job if it were offered to him, Westwood said, “Again, I wouldnt disrespect my club. Ive got a contract to coach Bengaluru FC. To comment on jobs with managers in jobs is really distasteful. I wouldnt like it if someone said that I could do a good job at Bengaluru FC because that is my job.”advertisementHe also brushed aside questions whether he saw the practical side of a possible merger between I-League and the Indian Super League which has been bandied about by the All India Football Federation.”Honestly, I dont make rules here. Im just a coach. I coach football games, and business details and mergers ? Im not really interested in them, to be honest. Im just doing my job.”He, however, batted for a longer duration national league.”I would like to coach as many matches as possible, so longer the league and more teams, better it is for me as it will be more competitive. I would like to play different teams, week in week out. Thats just what we do. “Players like to play as many games as possible and we like to coach as many games as possible. Again, you wont catch me commenting anything scandalous,” he declared. PTI SSR DK PDS PDS SDMlast_img read more
