Sullivan Honored As AIM Legislator Of The Year

first_imgFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare State Rep. Holli Sullivan (R-Evansville) was recently named an Accelerate Indiana Municipalities Legislator of the Year for her work to pass a long-term road funding plan.“We were committed to remaining fiscally responsible while passing the largest road funding plan in the state’s history,” Sullivan said. “Local communities maintain 86 percent of our roads and bridges. I would like to thank AIM for its work to continually improve Indiana’s cities and towns, and for supporting our road funding plan. This push to upgrade our state’s infrastructure will have a positive effect on our community and state for many years.”In addition to Sullivan, House Speaker Brian Bosma (R-Indianapolis), Rep. Tim Brown (R-Crawfordsville) and Rep. Ed Soliday (R-Valparaiso) were honored by AIM for their work to fund a long-term plan to improve Indiana’s roads and bridges. As a result of the legislation, cities and towns across the state are now ramping up for major road maintenance projects that have been long-delayed, according to Matt Greller, AIM CEO.“It’s a true honor to thank House Speaker Bosma and Representatives Brown, Soliday and Sullivan for their unwavering dedication this past legislative session,” Greller said. “They worked tirelessly to ensure that 2017 was the year Indiana began re-investing in our infrastructure in a meaningful, sustainable way. Hoosiers will reap the benefits of this investment for decades to come.”Sullivan serves on the House Committee on Roads and Transportation and the House Committee on Ways and Means, which makes recommendations to the Indiana General Assembly on any legislation dealing with the expenditure of money.last_img read more

Donegal man scoops over €160,000 on Winning Streak

first_imgA B&B owner from Co. Donegal spun the Winning Streak Wheel on last night’s (Sat) show and won €100,000 bringing his total haul from the National Lottery TV game show to €163,000.Hilary Keller from Buncrana, Co. Donegal navigated the game show, on RTÉ One, to perfection, winning an impressive €60,000 in cash from the show as well as a holiday to Venice, Italy worth €3,000.Hilary’s luck did not end there as he ended up being the lucky player that got the chance to spin the iconic Winning Streak Grand Prize Wheel. The latest winner comes as the gameshow producers revealed that people from Donegal were the luckiest lot in the last season.His spin resulted in the ball landing in the €100,000 segment after it took a few bounces either side, as the RTÉ studio audience fell silent in anticipation.Hilary spoke of how last weekend, while watching the show, he was left with his head in his hands as his wife, Margaret danced around the sitting room in excitement last Saturday evening as they watched on as Hilary’s three-star scratch card was pulled from the drum by Marty Whelan and Sinead Kennedy to appear on the show. Hilary and Margaret run the Clock Tower B&B in Buncrana, Co. Donegal.The couple, who are well travelled people, have three children living all over the world and even welcomed their daughter and grandchild home from Abu Dhabi for the Winning Streak occasion.Their daughter Louise, who works in Abu Dhabi, was so excited at her dad’s Winning Streak appearance that she booked a flight to come home to cheer him on from the audience alongside her son, Oliver.Hilary’s two sons Declan and Gerard were watching on the RTÉ player from their respective homes in Cape Town, South Africa and Perth, Australia.Hilary also has five grandchildren: Oliver (who watched on from the audience), Niamh and Eamon (who watched from South Africa) and Lily who watched from Abu Dhabi and Mia who is only a few weeks old in Perth. As well as his own children spread across the globe he also has sisters (Margaret and Genevieve) in London and Florida.Hilary and Margaret have run the Town Clock B&B in Buncrana for the past 27 years which is hugely popular in the peak summer months. The couple met in London, with Hilary moving across when he turned 16 to work in London. The pair returned to Ireland in 1977 to live in lovely Donegal. Hilary spent six years in South Africa as a child where the family moved when his father, a chef, got a job in a town called Hermanus. As fate would have it, his own son Declan now lives just a few miles from that town with his family. Hilary was reared in a town called Downings in Donegal but was born in Belfast.With his winnings from the show, Hilary and Margaret plan to do some more travelling and think Route 66 in the US may be on the cards.The National Lottery game show is co-presented by Marty Whelan and Sinead Kennedy and features some perennial favourite games including Play or Pay, Roll for Riches, WinFall and Electric Dream – where one player will win an electric car worth €25,000.As ever, one of the lucky five players will get the chance to spin the wheel and win up to €500,000. An exciting element of the show is that one €100,000 segment will be added to the Grand Prize Wheel every show if less than that amount was won in the previous show, improving players chances to win a massive prize. A brand new-look Winning Streak scratch card is available in the 5,900 National Lottery retailers all over the country. In addition to the chance to appear on the Winning Streak TV game show if you get three stars, players will also be in with a chance to win some great cash prizes up to €5,000.The odds for those who purchase a Winning Streak to win is 1 in 1.86 to win a cash or three-star prize. All players who purchase a scratch card can send their stubs into the National Lottery using grey envelopes, available in all National Lottery agents, where each week on the show, a player will be drawn as the winner of a Luxury Cruise for two valued at €5,000.Nearly 30 cent in every €1 spent on Winning Streak and all National Lottery games goes back to Good Causes in the areas of sport, youth, health, welfare, education, arts, heritage and the Irish Language.In total, more than €5.5 Billion has been raised for Good Causes since the National Lottery was established 32 years ago.In 2018 alone, more than €228 million was raised; the equivalent of almost €625,000 a day in support for local Good Causes in communities across Ireland.Donegal man scoops over €160,000 on Winning Streak was last modified: October 8th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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

5 International Travel Tips for Filmmakers and Videographers

first_imgHere are five pieces of advice for managing gear — and yourself — when traveling internationally for a shoot.Traveling internationally is stressful enough. Passports, visas, even the proper toiletries in the proper toiletry-sized bag can all be causes of stress when you’re in that mile-long security checkpoint line. Foreign languages, jet lag, customs, getting directions in a new city with a different culture — it can make your head spin.Add prepping for your international production to that, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. After my year on the road, I’ve picked up a few tips and tricks for any international shoot. Hopefully, these make the trip a little smoother — turbulence aside.1.Travel LightImage via Shutterstock.This seems obvious, but it’s easy to overpack. With skyrocketing baggage fees, most of us cannot afford to not travel light. This means you must only bring your absolute essentials. And if you can afford it or plan to travel a lot, invest in lightweight or easily compacted gear.To see my recommendations, check out “The Lightweight International Packing List,” also featured at PremiumBeat.2. Carry OnImage via Lowepro.Never, ever “check” your essentials. Yes, I realize I just told you we are only packing the “essentials,” but strip that down even further to the bare minimum of what you absolutely cannot live without if something were to go awry with your checked baggage. And yes, that will eventually happen if you travel a lot — especially when flying on smaller foreign airlines or with multiple layovers.This means utilizing that carry-on bag to the max. Carry on your camera, batteries, media, hard drives, audio, lenses, and (ideally) a small handheld rig broken down to fit. That might seem like a lot to cram into an overhead-friendly roller bag, but trust me — with enough time and practice, it is possible.That way, if worst comes to worst, you know you can get scrappy and make your shoot work until the remainder of your gear arrives. If you’re flying halfway across the world for only a short amount of time, you absolutely cannot afford to lose even a day of shooting because a bag did not arrive.3. The Buddy System
Image via Shutterstock.Another way to conquer the “no-check” rule is to use every member of your crew. On the three-to-five-person documentary teams I frequently travel with, we usually break up the “one carry-on per person” count into a couple of Lowepros and a tripod bag. Since we travel together often, it’s easy for us to utilize space in the roller bags by separating and mixing gear packages to maximize space.As for the tripod bag, you can fit a small video tripod, backpack slider, two monopods, and your boom pole into this one bag (trust me — I’ve done it!). It’s a bit of a Tetris game, but the trick is to remove the head on the tripod and slider and check them in your larger bag. If for some reason your checked bag doesn’t arrive with the tripod head, you still have two monopods to cover your first few days of shooting.4. SpreadsheetsTo keep track of which gear is in which bag, I recommend creating a spreadsheet. After twenty+ hours in the air, your jetlagged brain will thank you for any preproduction that spares you extra stress while building out a camera on zero hours of sleep in a completely different timezone.My packing routine is to start with a complete inventory of all my usual gear. I make a copy of this base list, then make any changes specific to this current trip’s needs. I then organize the list by bag so I can reference that quickly when looking for something in country.Build out your package completely before you pack it to make sure you’re not forgetting anything. Then, of course, double check that all the gear is in fact packed and ready to go. It seems tedious, but it is crucial to make sure you are not forgetting any little piece. Trying to track down a 1/4-20 screw in rural Angola is, quite frankly, completely impossible.The same goes for repacking when you’re returning home. You’ll be tired, so relying on a system to repack reduces the likelihood of forgetting something. 5. Keep It Casual and Incognito
This is not always necessary, depending on where you are headed, but sometimes shooting remote can also mean shooting in places where media teams are less welcome. If that is the case for you, I have a few recommendations.Pack your gear in bags that don’t look like camera bags. I recommend something like the Lowepro as your roller board in disguise, and we use a large, black Temba case for our checked luggage. It is just as protective as a pelican case, but it doesn’t draw the same amount of attention.I also recommend this approach while on the ground shooting. Do your best to look like a local. Obviously, if you’re a skinny white girl traveling through Africa, this will be more difficult. But dress both practically and respectably. Don’t assume just because you are in remote or developing countries that you won’t want to seem presentable. If you’re dressed like Indiana Jones in your safari hat and pants, you’ll definitely stand out even more than you already do. And shooting documentaries demands we disappear behind our subjects as much as possible. You’re also less likely to get targeted for theft or unwanted attention if you follow these rules.Often, you can fly under the radar if you claim to just be a tourist with a super-expensive filmmaking hobby. But if you aren’t comfortable doing so, double check that you have all the appropriate visas for working in country, even if just for a temporary shoot.Do you have advice for shooting internationally?

His shooting. Unbelievable.””I told him when I leave, or the club sack me, I don’t care of course who’ll be my successor, but I’d love that he’d be it,” he saidGerrard, who joined the club in February in a roving coaching role, will take over the U18s for Neil Critchley.The 49-year-old insisted that he would do everything he could to make sure Gerrard gets all the information.”I’ll do everything I can to make sure he gets all the information he needs.
