Powered by Firework The spirit of Halloween is over now. Although, sportsmen aren’t devoid from it, especially footballers. A certain Juventus star was seen dressing up in all spookiness and going around to haunt his teammates. Can you guess? Its Cristiano Ronaldo himself!Advertisement Image Courtesy: Twitter(@Cristiano)The Old Lady talisman posted a clip on his official Twitter on the Halloween night, which showed him dressing up as a clown and roaming around the club’s training grounds, in search of teammates. Enjoy the clip below-Advertisement In the video captioned with the greeting “Happy Halloween everyone”, the 34 year old was seen in a joker face paint, and a costume of a dwarf clown with another one on its shoulder. The iconic Halloween song ‘Thriller’ by the legendary Michael jackson was added as a background music, as the Portuguese striker went on to look for people to spook. Must have been very scary for his unsuspecting teammates.However, Miralem Pjanić and Wojciech Szczęsny, the two teammates who appear in the video, weren’t seen spooked by Ronaldo at all, and instead, shook hands with the thespian.The Bianconeri forward scored a late penalty in their 2-1 win over Genoa in their Halloween night Serie A match. Sarri’s boys have also secured another win today against Torino as de Ligt netted in the winner in the 70th minute. Advertisementlast_img read more

Canucks Defeat Coyotes 2-1 by Shootout in Dull, Boring Affair

first_img Luongo played solid all the way through until the last goal. The Canucks continued their physical play, outhitting Phoenix 28-20. It became a game of “chip the puck off the boards and out”, only to have it hammered back in deep.  Eventually, the Coyotes’ “strategy” (if you use the term loosely) worked out, with a couple bad plays in the Canucks end led to the tying goal.There were large stretches where the Canucks struggled to mount any offense, especially in the third period.  The Coyotes outshot the Canucks 7-2 in the final period.  It’s very common for the losing team to outshoot and outchance the frontrunner in the third period in the NHL, and tonight’s game was an example of this. That said, the lack of quality scoring chances by the Coyotes was astounding – for a team that was “pressing” to tie the game, their offense was almost nonexistent.Hockey is a tremendous sport and when played at its highest level, it can be a treat to watch.  Teams like the Coyotes are the antithesis to this, dumbing the game down to its basest levels.  They had reportedly been scoring more goals of late, especially during their recent five-game winning streak.  There was no evidence of this tonight. CANUCKS STRUGGLE TO CREATE OFFENSE – IS THIS MEANINGFUL?Vancouver struggled to mount much offense for large stretches of the game, and my immediate concern was “what would happen if we had to play them in the playoffs”?  It seemed like a potential recipe for disaster.However, there are reasons why a team like this would post a minimal threat to any of the top teams in the playoffs. While Phoenix excels at stifling the opposition, eventually the talent disparity would prove too much to overcome, especially over a seven game series.  All the top teams in the league can shut down and play stifling defense as well, when required – tonight’s game was evidence of that.Phoenix saw success on the penalty kill tonight by employing an extremely aggressive approach, not giving the Canucks any time to make plays.  Clearly this worked in a one-game situation, but I am comforted knowing that as soon as the twins figured this out, it would be very easy for them to find the weak spots and pick them apart.  I’m pretty sure that over a longer series, that style of PK would not be successful against the Canucks.The Canucks were only able to score once tonight, but I have a hard time believing they would be kept down for an entire series against a team like this.  For that reason – I just don’t see how a team like this would pose much of a threat. PARTING SHOTSQuick comments:  The most entertaining moment of the game occurred when late in the third period, after an icing call, Bieksa attempted to shoot the puck off the boards and catch it behind his back to give to the linesman.  I’m not kidding, that was the most entertaining play of the game. Hodgson nearly brought the crowd to its feet when he split the D in the first period before being stoned by LaBarbera.  Hodgson is showing improvement almost every time out. Virtually no Canucks stood out today.  Booth was the most noticeable and was named the game’s first star.center_img Leigh Ramsden lives in Vancouver and is an avid Canucks fan, having been a partial season ticket holder for over 10 years. He’s old enough to have witnessed all three Stanley Cup losses, as such, his prime goal is to remove those scars by seeing a Cup brought to Vancouver. Leigh is Fighting For Stanley’s (www.fightingforstanley.ca/vancouver) west coast correspondent, and will also blog after all Canuck games for The Nelson Daily.The Phoenix Coyotes came to Vancouver on Monday night hoping to increase their slim lead in the race for the final Western Conference playoff spot.  They were able to do so after earning a single point in a listless, dull affair eventually won by the Canucks in a shootout by the score of 2-1.The game tonight was one of the worst examples of NHL hockey I have ever had to lay eyes on.  Dull, boring, and tight-checking, the two teams almost choked the life out of each other before the Canucks finally won in the sixth round of the shootout. The Canucks had goals from Cody Hodgson, Alex Edler, David Booth, and Ryan Kesler in the skills competition, while Phoenix saw success from Ray Whitney, Gilbert Brule, and Mikkel Boedker.  Canuck netminder Roberto Luongo stoned Coyote shooter Boyd Gordon to seal the win.The Canucks only goal in regulation came off a nice play by David Booth, who took the puck around Keith Yandle after a deflected dump-in and was able to deke Phoenix goalie Jason LaBarbera and slide the puck home midway through the second period. Phoenix pressed a bit in the third period, and after a series of gaffes in the Canucks’ end, Yandle atoned for his mistake by surprising Luongo with a weak wrist shot that should never have found its way into the net.  The overtime was as uneventful as the rest of the game.It’s easy to blame Luongo for this one – he let in a horrible goal with only a couple of minutes left.  But even with this fact, he’s relatively blameless tonight.  It was like the entire team was put to sleep, and certainly you’d expect your offense to provide more than one goal.Perhaps the most telling statistic was the Canucks’ shot count:  four in the first period, a reasonable 13 in the second, and a farcical two in the third.  Neither team was able to generate much in the way of offense, as they continually broke up each other’s passes and plugged up the neutral zone.  While the ice generally isn’t too bad in Vancouver, the puck was continually bouncing around and being swatted at by both teams, it reminded me of my high-school intramural lunchtime floor hockey (i.e. no talent).  It was downright ugly hockey to watch.  If you missed this game, do not feel bad about it. IT’S NO WONDER NOBODY SUPPORTS HOCKEY IN PHOENIXThe most overriding thought I kept having was that it was no mystery why hockey isn’t surviving in the desert if this is the product that gets trotted out on the ice in a night to night basis.  Phoenix coach Dave Tippett is the new-age Jacques Lemaire, his defensive teachings imperative if his talent-challenged lineup is to have a chance to win games.The Canucks had decent stretches in the game and were able to sustain pressure on the Coyotes at various times – early in the first period, and throughout a good portion of the second.  However, in the third, they completely got lulled to sleep by their opponents.  The power play again looked better, but finished 0 for 3, including an almost four minute man-advantage in the first period.  The Canucks weren’t credited with many shots in that stretch, but did create a few chances. Coach Vigneault had Cinderella story Byron Bitz on the ice in the final couple minutes (good), but his was the final error that led to the Phoenix goal (bad) – tough luck for the big guy.Broadcast Observation of the Day:  One of John Shorthouse’s most annoying traits is his misuse of the phrase “throwing it up the middle”.  Every time someone makes a play in their own zone to the middle of the ice, he refers to it as “throwing it up the middle”. Risky passes from deep in your own zone, up the middle, should be referred to as that.  However, making a good play from the side boards to a forward with speed in the middle of the ice is a staple of a great breakout, which the Canucks have. They are very different things, and referring to each of them as the same thing (and insinuating that a good play is one fraught with unnecessary risk) is misleading to the viewer, and I wish he’d cut it out.Looking ahead: Vancouver hosts the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday night in the Canucks’ third consecutive game against a team vying for the eighth and final playoff spot.last_img read more

Mavericks Barbers: The one thing you HAVE to do for your beard!

first_imgThis week, the team at Mavericks in Letterkenny are sharing secrets from the barbershop floor in their guide in how to properly look after your beard. Beard oil is one of the most essential products that any beardsman can own. Using beard oil can take you from looking like the cat dragged you in the door backwards to the ultimate Maverick.From beardruff to beard itch, and the general texture of how your beard feels, the benefits are far and wide. A bit about how it is made upAny high-quality beard oil is typically made up of two distinct ingredients, a carrier oil and an essential oil.Carrier oils themselves will typically deliver many of the core benefits of any given beard oil as they make up about 90% of the actual oil. Typically used are jojoba, argan, sweet almond, grapeseed, and several others.The reason why these oils are so vastly used in beauty products is due to them being completely all natural and having terrific hydrating/moisturizing abilities for your skin and hair follicles. Many of the more expensive beard oils will typically include several essential oils in addition to a carrier oil, such as sandalwood or tea tree are which are natural antiseptics.Therefore, when applied to your skin, these essential oils will do a good job in clearing out your pores to reduce the occurrence of acne.Getting Rid Of That Dreaded Beard ItchJust about every man that grows a beard will start to notice that it gets a bit itchy.  While some Mavericks like to just “push through” this phase, this discomfort is completely unnecessary with the added use of beard oil.At the root of every one of your beard follicles, you have a pair of glands called sebaceous glands. The sebaceous glands create this oil called sebum oil. As your beard follicle gets longer, it simply requires more and more sebum oil to coat the follicle while also keep your skin well-nourished and moisturized. However, no matter the length of your beard, your sebaceous glands stay the same size.  Given that they are finite in size, their sebum oil production can’t effectively keep up with the demand of your beard follicle.As you can see, no matter the length of your beard, sebum oil remains constant.  Therefore, when your beard gets to a certain length (every man is different but typically after a few weeks of growth), their sebum oil just simply isn’t enough. This is when your beard and more importantly, your skin becomes dried out and itchy.So, the introduction of beard oil will act as a supplement to your sebum oil making the dreaded beard itch go away while also giving it the proper nourishment that it is seeking.But Beard Itch is Only Half the Story…. Beardruff? When you don’t use any sort of beard oil on your skin for an extended period of time and are constantly itching it due to irritation, beardruff will be born. Beardruff is essentially dandruff for your beard.  Your skin is so dry that when you start to itch it, the skin begins to flake causing white specs of beardruff to show up on your shirt. This is where the oil intervenes, keeping it conditioned, moisturized and the itch away.How It Looks While we have been concentrating a lot about your skin care with beard oil, it does help make your beard feel a lot softer, but also look great as well. Therefore, if your beard is feeling a bit scraggly or straw-like, regular application of beard oil will help in making it feel much better.This regular use of beard oil will also help with the reduction of split ends occurring.  If you are taking your beard growing seriously, the reduction of split ends will be good news as you won’t have to trim your beard nearly as often.In addition to the feel of your beard, the general appearance of your beard will also improve with the introduction of beard oil.The follicles of your beard will look a little bit shinier and healthier.When a man walks into Mavericks, we can tell whether he has been using beard oil or not regularly. It is simple, even untrimmed, his beard will still look in good shape!TipWhen applying, ensure you comb or brush through thoroughly to ensure oil reaches the root of the hair!!Call into Mavericks on lower Main Street Letterkenny to see our range of beard oils and we have a whole lot more… beard balms, beard shampoos, beard brushes moustache waxes and more, not to mention bespoke beard trimming!!!Also, you can catch up with us on Facebook  (www.facebook.com/Maverickstraditionalbarbershop) and follow us on Instagram (maverickstraditionalbarbershop) Snapchat @MAVERICKSTBS or Twitter www.twitter.com/mavericksbaber…or better still call in and treat yourself.Mavericks Barbers: The one thing you HAVE to do for your beard! was last modified: March 27th, 2019 by Mavericks BarbersShare 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)last_img read more

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

Competitive UP good for UAAP

first_imgFire hits houses in Mandaluyong City But there seems to be a change in the way things are being done for the Fighting Maroons basketball team and there’s a renewed interest in its hoop campaign.The buzz isn’t just about that big win against De La Salle University, the defending champion, although the triumph created ripples of conversation in basketball circles and on social media. It’s more about having a chance in every game to score a win against both the frontrunners and the struggling teams.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutA competitive UP team will spread interest not only for its community but also for basketball followers in general. College ball is interesting beyond school alliances. The game is played by young players whose skills are still being formed and that’s why flashes of brilliance are just as fascinating as fumbles and turnovers.It’s also about getting the community together to come to the games and cheer together and UP does have a sizeable number of students and alumni that can converge. But to keep them coming, the team has to remain competitive as it’s hard to root for a squad that can’t stay in the game till the very end. All the UAAP schools have undergone difficult seasons, where wins have been hard to achieve. You see that in the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers who still have to win in the current tournament. Very often teams struggle for wins because it also matters who you are pitted against in a given season and what kind of players you have.It cannot be a case of a lack of trying by teams that haven’t won that much. It’s just that the other teams are so well stacked up and have been playing together for some time. La Salle and Ateneo do not simply have adequate support but also have teams that have been together through at least two years and that is vital for forging team chemistry.So we find the Fighting Maroons in the conversation in the current UAAP season. Many alumni are hopeful for a Final Four finish, something that hasn’t happened in almost two decades. It will be good to see a large sea of maroon in the stands on a regular basis shouting unique cheers that can rev up the game.ADVERTISEMENT Read Next BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:00Chief Justice Peralta on upcoming UAAP game: UP has no match against UST01:37Protesters burn down Iran consulate in Najaf01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games View comments Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients center_img Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
