He is also alleging that conversations at various prisons were also recorded.The gangland figure was sentenced to life in prison after he was found guilty of the murder of the 28-year-old Garryowen rugby player on November 9, 2008.John Dundon, 30, from Hyde Road in Limerick, was convicted last year and given the mandatory sentence to life in prison, but now his legal team instructed by Mr Devane will set about having the case reviewed and the circumstances surrounding the taping allegations.“While I sympathise with the Geogheghan family obviously. I certainly believe that John Dundon’s telephone calls and consultations were listened to both inside in the garda station and I would go so far as saying also his telephone calls in the prison and to his previous solicitors and also to me,” said Mr Devane.“I am looking at a number of high profile murder cases and I am also looking at some other matters including a couple of rape maters and matters where people have been convicted – I have always believed in the wrong – of IRA membership,” he added.In the wake of the surprise retirement of Martin Callinan from the position of Garda Commissioner amid the prolonged garda sagas, Mr Devane said that the recording of telephone conversation in garda stations was “disgraceful” and said John Dundon’s case would be high on his list of priorities.“I know that prison calls are always recorded and evidence has been gleamed and used in the past even in objections to bail for certain other people because of telephone calls made from the prison to other family members.“It’s an absolute disgrace and to say that the Commissioner didn’t know about that I believe is like the organ grinder not knowing the music that he is playing ….I believe that the current Minister for Justice should do as Commissioner Callinan did and fall on his sword,” he added.The high profile legal aid solicitor has said that he is reviewing a number of cases with counsel that he says were “interfered with” and added that senior garda warned him before that his own phone was being “monitored”.“This is an absolute disgrace. Whatever about my telephone being monitored, I’m not silly enough or stupid enough to advise a client of issues that might be of a sensitive nature over my telephone. But to think that the guards can monitor a conversation that might take place over a telephone or in a garda station is an absolute disgrace,” he said.Mr Devane concluded that he has “suspected for a long, long time and when advising people I have often had to write down my instructions to people so that they would follow rather than saying them out and letting the guards hear the advice I was giving or the answers that I was getting to the questions I was putting to the client.“I have had to write my instructions to the client. That is dreadful in this country where there are laws to protect the citizens against this type of eaves dropping. Watergate eat your heart out!” he added.

JSA rolls out outreach programme

first_img Major objective KINGSTON: Seeking to expand the reach of the game, the Jamaica Squash Association (JSA) has rolled out an outreach training programme with Penwood High School. Under the programme, eight female students from Penwood will participate in squash training sessions each Saturday at the Liguanea Club in New Kingston. The inaugural workshop was conducted last week by seven-time All Jamaica squash champion Chris Binnie. Fresh from the successful defence of his national title at the All Jamaica Championships last month, Binnie gave the girls an introductory squash lesson before taking them through a series of on-court drills and some match simulation. Subsequent sessions will be conducted by certified coach and 13-time All Jamaica ladies champion Karen Anderson and JSA junior programme manager Gill Binnie. The major objective of the initiative is to expose youngsters to the sport with a view to recruiting new competitive and recreational players. “In order to keep local squash growing we have to ensure that a wider cross section of people get to experience the fun and excitement of the sport,” Gill Binnie said. “The JSA is developing a programme to work with both primary and high schools, and although we are starting it on a small scale we hope to attract financial support so we can broaden the scope in the future,” she added. The Penwood students will participate in training sessions until the end of the school year in late June. After the initial training programme, players will have the option to become part of the JSA’s junior squash programme.last_img read more

Altech UEC opens high-tech STB factory

first_img3 August 2011Technology company Altech UEC has opened a high-tech facility outside Durban with an annual manufacturing capacity of three-million digital set-top boxes (STBs), which are needed as South Africa and sub-Saharan African countries convert their television signals from analogue to digital transmission.With demand for STBs in South Africa expected to reach more than nine-million, and a further 30-million required for the rest of sub-Saharan Africa, the company has consolidated six buildings on two sites into a single, state-of-the-art, 13 500 square metre factory at Mount Edgecombe.“Our investment in this facility is in direct support of government policy,” Altech CEO Craig Venter said at the launch on Wednesday. “Not only are we employing people in the factory, but services such as packaging, delivery and installation will create tens of thousands of small business opportunities in the years to come.“In the process, people will acquire new skills, equipping them for the next wave of ICT innovation and development.”Economic spin-offs destined to be hugeVenter said the economic spin-offs are destined to be huge – from technical support to retailing – while the increased demand for broadcast content, especially regional-based programming, will create more jobs for local content producers and their supply chains.“New jobs will be created all down the delivery chain, while millions will be able to benefit from better education and communication through new electronic means,” said Venter. “Digital migration creates an opportunity to build a globally competitive export sector that is an objective of the [government’s] Industrial Policy Action Plan.”Venter said the new generation STBs would enable millions of people in South Africa and the wider region to access digital television.Resuscitating local research and developmentVenter said ICT innovation, driven by intellectual property, was a “cornerstone of global competitiveness”. There was therefore a need to resuscitate local research and development and, while a South African Silicon Valley might be far-fetched, poverty could only be eradicated by economic growth, which depended on competitiveness.“In a world where everybody has access to the same technological tools, competitiveness depends on how the technology is applied to harness information and create new knowledge,” he said. “People and countries who can meet these demands are the ones who succeed.”SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Three and Four Point Editing in Adobe Premiere Pro

first_img3 and 4 point edits are a way to get a higher degree of control and precision in your Premiere Pro video editing.  Here’s how!Premiere Pro has many great tools to help editors get the right clip in the right place at the right length – three point editing is one of them.  That said, I don’t tend to use three point edits a great deal but when I do I find them to be very helpful especially when using the OUT point in the timeline.What is a 3 point edit?A three point edit requires you to specify 3 points in your project to make an edit. These points may well include the IN point and the OUT point of a clip in your project or source panel as 2 of the 3 points.IN and OUT Points of a Clip in the Project PanelBut that still leaves 1 more point to be specified, and this is done in the TIMELINE.The Timeline with an IN Point SpecifiedYou can either create an IN point in your timeline by simply selecting your timeline and going to the place where you want the edit to start and hitting the ‘I’ key to get the results shown above. Or use the OUT point method…The Timeline with and OUT Point SpecifiedYou can park your playhead in the Premiere Pro timeline at the point you want the clip to END and hit the ‘o’ key again as shown above.If you get the IN point or the OUT point in the wrong place, don’t worry, just right-click where you see the blue area indicating an IN or OUT point has been created and you will get an option to clear IN, OUT or both.So, you’ve set 3 points. The first 2 happen to be on the actual clip you want to insert and the third is on the Premiere Pro timeline. At this point you’re ready to insert your clip by selecting it and hitting the ‘point’ or ‘full-stop’ (.) key. This will create an overwrite or overlay edit with the the clip behaving as follows:If you have selected an IN point in your timeline then the IN point of the clip will match the IN point you have specified in the timeline.  The clip will overwrite into the timeline and its length will be the same length as you specified for the clip, potentially overwriting clips AFTER the place of insertion.If you have selected an OUT point in your timeline then the OUT point of the clip will match the OUT point you have specified in the timeline and the clip will over-write into the timeline from its OUT point FORWARDS – potentially overwriting the clips BEFORE the place of insertion.Inserted Clip Overwriting the Following Clip Because an IN Point Was SpecifiedFor me, I tend to use this more for inserting clips which have to end at a specific point (in other words by specifying an OUT point in the timeline) than for clips that need to start at a specific point.NOTE: You can also do three point editing in reverse of the above explanation.  Set an IN point and an OUT point in the TIMELINE and just an IN point OR an OUT point on the clip. The clip would start at the IN point of the clip and end at the OUT point set in the Premiere Pro timeline.4 Point Editing in Premiere ProWell, a four point edit will have IN and OUT points on both the clip AND the timeline. However, as you can image it is highly improbable that the length of the clip from IN to OUT and the length of the space in the timeline from IN to OUT will be the same.Timeline AND Clip with IN and OUT Points SpecifiedThus, because of this mismatch, when you hit the point or full-stop key (.) to overwrite the clip into the timeline you get the following ‘Fit Clip’ options box.Fit Clip Option BoxThis box is basically telling you, ‘OK, the clip IN and OUT points won’t match the IN and OUT you’ve specified in your timeline so what do you want me to do about it? The default setting is simply to ignore the sequence (timeline) OUT point and let the clip flow along down the timeline, but what do you want?’As you can see the options include ignoring both clip and sequence (timeline) IN or OUT points or – at the very top – ‘Change Clip Speed (Fit to Fill)’. This option will either speed the clip up to fit into a space smaller than the length of the clip OR slow the clip down if the clip is shorter than the space you want it to fit into – which can be a really useful option.  One note though, this option will affect the audio of the clip. So, if you end up speeding up the clip the audio will get higher pitched and, if you slow it down, the audio will get lower pitched which may not be what you want to do (however, you can always strip out the audio after the fact).Use 3 and 4 point editing in your Premiere Pro timeline to get precise control over your edits!last_img read more
