first_imgDOING THE BUSINESS: Donegal Daily in conjunction with the ETB will be profiling a number of individuals and businesses who have successfully graduated from one of the many training programmes ETB has to offer.As the ETB launch their latest diverse range of courses, Donegal Daily spoke with Paul Carr from Glenties. Paul trained as an IT Technician with the Donegal ETB, which led him to do a third level course at the LYIT and gain employment at Pramerica in Letterkenny.Before taking on the course, Paul had been working on the pier of Killybegs ever since leaving school. He decided to study IT in 2012, and was amazed by the doors it opened up for him. “My prior knowledge in IT before doing the course was fixing computers for friends and family,” he said. “The course started from the very beginning and progressed, and by the end there was a lot of knowledge to be gained from it.”The 47 week level six FETAC course ran on a full-time basis and covered a lot of topics in the IT sector, including A+ and Network+. Paul gained such a depth of knowledge about one particular subject, CompTIA Network+, that he is now teaching classes on it at Pramerica.Paul went on to study Computer Security and Digital Forensics at the LYIT after finishing the course, and as a result of his qualification with the ETB, he was able to bypass the first year of the degree.Pramerica accepted Paul onto a 10-week internship when he was six months into his studies at LYIT. He recalls being in competition with third and fourth year students for the placement, but puts his acceptance down to his extra ETB qualification. “I must have done something right at Pramerica, because they allowed me to progress into my final year part-time and work with them too,” he said. Paul graduated from the LYIT last week.Paul now works as a web application pen tester (ethical hacker) at Pramerica. “I’m very happy in my work and I love my job. Working in security changes everyday. Unlike with programmers, tomorrow when I come into work it could be different than today,” he said.“The course was how I got to where I am today,” Paul said, “it was probably one of the best courses I did in my life, and I would definitely recommend it.”For people considering studying IT with the ETB, Paul recommends that they go down to talk to staff. He remains in contact with his past teachers and visits them to discuss networking while he teaches the subject himself at Pramerica.The approachable staff at the ETB will help prospective students with any questions, he said. “Do what I did. Go down and speak to them if you have a question. The course starts at the start and doesn’t require vast extensive knowledge in IT. You need a small idea of computer parts, but I would highly recommend it to anybody with an interest in IT,” he said.The programme Paul studied in 2012 is equivalent to the former FETAC level 6 course. Participants taking on the course now will not achieve the FETAC (Now QQI) certificate but the range of CompTia (industry standard) qualifications on successful completion.For further information on these programs and others contact Sarah on 074-9120542 Email for course inquiries: coursesdonegaltc@donegaletb.ie Visit www.donegaletb.ieClick here for more details on the course.Doing the Business: How Paul secured his IT ambitions was last modified: November 1st, 2016 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)Tags:Donegal ETBeducationitLYITpramericalast_img read more

first_imgA new children’s residential and respite centre has been officially launched in Letterkenny.Tusla Child and Family Agency unveiled the new centre on Thursday, which will be called ‘Saoire’.Saoire provides a respite and support service for children and young people between the ages of six and 17 who are living at home or in foster care and require additional supports to maintain their placement in a family environment. This typically means spending a few nights at the centre surrounded by friendly staff, enjoyable activities and an opportunity to avail of a range of supports and interventions offered to help equip them better for family life.Donal McCormack (right) National Service Director, Residential Childcare Services Tusla pictured with manager Elaine Rooney (5th from right front row) and staff members at the official opening of Saoire, the new children’s residential and respite centre in LetterkennyCommenting at the opening on Thursday, Donal McCormack, National Service Director, Residential Childcare Services, Tusla said: “I’m delighted to officially open Saoire. The centre was developed as a respite centre after careful consideration of the needs of children and young people in Donegal. It’s fantastic that a centre such as Saoire can help to maintain long-term placements, and can provide valuable supports and interventions.”The centre has the capacity to work with up to for fifteen children and families at any one time.Its objective is to support children and young people who need supplementary assistance to assist in sustaining their continued placement in a family environment. The length of each placement depends upon each young person’s needs as outlined in their respite plan and their progress through the Welltree Wellbeing Outcomes Framework.Guest speaker, Aisling Gillen, Regional Services Director West Tusla and Donal McCormack, National Service Director, Residential Childcare Services Tusla at the official opening of Saoire, the new children’s residential and respite centre in LetterkennyMr McCormack continued: “Saoire has undergone extensive renovation to ensure that it provides a homely, welcoming environment for young people to come to.“Respite centres are important as they provide a respite option for both children and families in need of such an intervention without breaking the essential link between the full time placement and the child.”Some of the services provided by the centre include planned respite breaks, individually tailored placement plans, outreach support for the young people and families/foster carers, 24 hour telephone support.Mr McCormack explained: “Saoire’s respite programme is based on offering the young people as much choice as possible in order to have meaningful participation by the young people in the service from choice of activities, outreach service, and over how they wish to make use of the overall respite plan. It works to build on the strengths of young people and their families to sustain them in family life in the future.” New children’s respite centre opens in Letterkenny was last modified: March 15th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)Tags:letterkennyresidentialrespitesaoireTUSLATusla Child and Family Agencylast_img read more

first_imgPro-evolution scientists argue against bills designed to protect the academic freedom of teachers.by Dr. Jerry BergmanAn article was printed in a May 12, 2017 issue of Scientific American, titled “Revamped ‘Anti-Science’ Education Bills in U.S. Find Success: Legislation urges educators to ‘teach the controversy’ and allows citizens to challenge curricula.”  The article attempted to argue against bills designed to protect the academic freedom of teachers. [1]The article reviewed the various State and local legislatures attempts to deal with censorship problems in public schools. So far two states have approved legislation this year allowing “teachers to embrace ‘academic freedom’ and present the full spectrum of views on evolution and climate change.” Called academic freedom bills, so far three have become law in the past: in Mississippi in 2006, Louisiana in 2008 and Tennessee in 2012. At least eleven similar bills have been proposed this year in the United States.One, the Florida legislation, is much broader. It enables residents to file complaints about the curriculum against the schools in their district. The complaint could lead to a public hearing to determine if the material at issue is “accurate, balanced, non-inflammatory, current … and suited to students’ needs.” Obviously, these categories are all somewhat vague, but at least will trigger some discussion and needed parental involvement in the government schools.“we didn’t target any one subject matter” —a Florida state representativeNot surprising, the anti-creation Scientific American article was very critical of all such bills. The writer relied on Glenn Branch of the National Center for Science Education (NCSE) whose main goal is to insure only the Darwinian side is presented in government schools and information against this worldview is censored.State Representative Byron Donalds, a Republican from Florida District 80, who sponsored the bill, said it was developed to support parents who are concerned about what their children are learning in public schools. He believes one reason why it passed “is that we didn’t target any one subject matter.” Mr. Branch opposed the bill because, he claims “The people pushing the bill have been complaining about evolution and climate change,” thus he thinks the bill could end up allowing critical evaluation of Darwinism in the schools, something he is dead set against.The NCSE, Florida teachers’ organizations and some local school boards have requested that Governor Rick Scott veto the bill.  The bill’s opponents admit that a veto doesn’t seem likely, given Scott’s beliefs. Branch calls this bill, which is designed to stop censorship of evidence against Darwinism, the “back-door approach to altering science education by means of broader academic censorship.” How it will cause censorship, he does not say. Branch opines that these bills now seem more likely to pass this year “due to renewed anti-evolution and anti-climate change sentiment; confidence that a country led by U.S. President Donald Trump …. is more hospitable to such views.”Branch concluded their side has not lost because the bills cut both ways. “The opponents of science education may feel newly invigorated — but so do its defenders.”Note that Branch calls academic-freedom bills designed to protect the freedom of teachers who have to deal with navigating the evolution controversy “opponents of science” when it is teachers who endeavor to cover these controversial topics objectively who are often suppressed, censored or fired.

first_imgImpressive footage from both the Blackmagic 4K Production Camera and Panasonic Lumix GH4 are exciting for cinematographers and indie filmmakers.The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K and the Panasonic Lumix GH4 (yet to be released) are creating quite a buzz in the indie-filmmaking community. But how do they compare to each other? In the following article we take a look at test footage and differences between these two cameras.The Blackmagic Production Camera 4KThe highly anticipated Blackmagic 4K Production Camera offers the sleek design of the original BMCC with 4K resolution. Early test footage shows that the quality is every bit as beautiful as it’s predecessor.The camera, which just started shipping, has been plagued with release delays over the past year. Blackmagic CEO Grant Petty says that the delay is caused because the company needed to “replace a bunch of the software in the camera that handles the sensor calibration and image processing“. Blackmagic has recently dropped the price of the cam $1,000 (now only $3,000), making it the cheapest 4K production camera. That is until the GH4 is released…The Panasonic Lumix GH4Unlike the BMCC, the mirrorless GH4 doubles as a still photography camera when it’s not taking 4K footage. With an updated sensor and 4K compatibility, the GH4 offers DSLR lovers a camera for the modern age. Preliminary footage of the GH4 shows it’s capability and we are impressed.The GH4 is not quite as cinematic as the BMCC, partly due to it’s MOV compression, as opposed to BMCC’s RAW recording. That being said it is still producing high quality footage that rivals even the most state-of-the-art DSLRs (we’re looking at you Canon Mark III). Early speculation has the GH4 priced at $1,500 but Panasonic has not released any details regarding the release.What do you think of the test footage? Do you think that the GH4 is a real contender or is the Blackmagic far superior?last_img read more
