Input sought on proposed Woodfibre LNG Project

first_imgThe liquefied natural gas plant would be built near Squamish, B.C. at the waterfront industrial site of Western Forest Products’ former pulp mill, along with a transfer facility. It would then ship between 1.5 and 2.1 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas a year from the area of Kitimat or Prince Rupert.The CEAA is looking for public input on the project and its potential effects on the environment.  The provincial government has also requested that if an environmental assessment is required, the B.C. process be substituted for the federal one. Comments on the substitution are also being accepted.Written comments on the need for a federal environmental assessment and on the substitution request must be submitted by January 6, 2014 to:- Advertisement -Woodfibre LNG Project Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency 410-701 West Georgia Street Vancouver, BC V7Y 1C6 Telephone: 604-666-2431 Fax: 604-666-6990 Woodfibre@ceaa-acee.gc.caMore information on the project can be found here.Advertisementlast_img read more

FIVE DONEGAL GARDA STATIONS CLOSED WEEKS AGO

first_imgFIVE Co Donegal Garda stations officially closed today – but in reality they have been closed for weeks.Churchill closed two weeks ago, as did Annagry.Brockagh shut up shop last week, while Glencolmcille and Malin were also shut last week and all Gardai transferred or retired. The ‘official’ closures came on a day when a Donegal Deputy called for the cuts to be reversed.Charlie McConalogue also paid tribute to murdered Garda Adrian Donhoe.“I join everyone in the House in sympathising with the family of the late Garda Adrian Donohoe, particularly his wife Caroline and her young son and daughter, and his colleagues in the Garda force.  I sympathise also with their friends and comrades and the wider community.  Adrian’s loss has been deeply felt across the country in recent days.  It will be deeply felt within the Garda force and Adrian’s community for a very long time,” said Deputy McConalogue.“Coming from the part of the country I come from, I know only too well the danger that gardaí must endure, very often on a daily basis.  In Donegal in the past three years, two gardaí, Garda Robbie McCallion and Garda Gary McLoughlin, were lost.  Only the weekend before last, there was an incident in the county in which a Garda car was rammed while in the process of making an arrest, once again highlighting the dangers that many gardaí must encounter daily.  We owe them a great debt of gratitude for that. “As has been rightly pointed out, this motion pre-dated the death of Garda Donohoe.  It is based on the fact that crime has been escalating recently. I refer in particular to burglaries, no more so than in my county.  From November to January, there were several cases.  In November, Phyllis McGee, a 78-year-old lady from Pettigo, was burgled.  On 5 January, a 96-year-old from Buncrana, Margaret “Greta” Lilly, was burgled.  On 7 and 8 January, a number of homes were ransacked in the Raphoe-Convoy area.  On 12 January, Phyllis McGee was again targeted.  On 14 January, Eric and Jim Steele of Manorcunningham were targeted, and they, too, were targeted for a second time.  On 16 January, John Gallagher, from outside Buncrana, and Bernie Doherty, an elderly lady from Ture, were targeted.  The Minister’s response has been grossly inadequate.“His response since taking on the role of Minister for Justice and Equality bears no resemblance to his performance here on the Opposition benches when he was the Opposition spokesperson.  Back then the Minister could not tell the people loudly enough that if they just let him at it the country would be a safer place and how we would do the devil and all.  Unfortunately, his performance since then bears no resemblance to the politician he was in opposition, and the same can be said for many of his Cabinet colleagues.  If a modern day novelist was to do a retake on the George Orwell classic he or she would not have to create too many fictional characters to put a book together such has been the change in nature of many of the people in the Cabinet from what they were previously.“I ask that the Minister stop draining the resources from the Garda and that he gives its members the equipment and the finances they need to do their job on a daily basis.  I ask that instead of describing Border areas in Donegal as not being a special case and burglaries as unfortunate, which is the word he used recently to describe them, he would deploy the resources required to ensure our communities are kept safe.” FIVE DONEGAL GARDA STATIONS CLOSED WEEKS AGO was last modified: January 31st, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:deputy charlie mcconalogueFIVE DONEGAL GARDA STATIONS CLOSED WEEKS AGOlast_img read more

Basic Camera Filtration to Elevate your Cinematography

first_imgPolarizersPolarizers are one of the best kept secrets in the film world. They’re great tools that can drastically enhance the quality of your footage, providing you with far more cinematic and vibrant images. I have to admit that I didn’t start using polarizers until very recently. Once I began to use them, I finally realized how powerful they can be. Polarizers have many usages. They can create bluer skies, minimize reflections on car windshields, or see more clearly into water.Much like NDs, polarizers also come in circular models that you can thread to the front of your lens or in 4×5.65 rotating applications. For more on camera filtration, check out these articles:The Five Lens Filters Every Video Shooter Should OwnManipulating the Invisible Spectrum With ND FiltersThe World of Diffusion Filters Filtration for your camera can be a essential to creating the most cinematic images. Here’s what you need to know.Cover image via Shutterstock.With a wide variety of available filtration options, choosing the right tool to enhance your story can be challenging. I’m going to walk you through the three most common types of filtration that you may come across. Each type of filtration is an essential filmmaking tool, with a unique purpose, to help you tell your story effectively.Neutral DensityNeutral Density filters, or ND filters, are a key component of crafting cinematic images. One of the most common uses of ND filtration is to darken your image in exterior daylight, allowing you to open up your lens aperture to create a more shallow and cinematic depth of field.ND filters come in all different strengths. The “lightest” ND is a .3, which reduces the exposure of your image by 1 full stop. The next step up is .6 which is two stops. Incrementally each additional stop of light is measured as .3 more than the previous. So for example, a 3 stop light reduction would be ND .9, and 4 stops would be an ND 1.2.ND filtration is available in all sort of sizes from a 52mm thread that attaches to the front of your lens to a 4×5.65 sheet that drops into the matte box of your camera.center_img Diffusion FiltersWith today’s modern digital cameras and lenses, sharpness is king. However, with so much sharpness in images now, cinematographers are looking for ways to soften their images to make them appear smoother and more fluid. This is where diffusion filters step in. Diffusion filtration does three jobs: it softens the image, blooms the highlights, and lifts the shadows and contrast. These three elements help to take the edge off today’s sharp digital images. However, what makes diffusion filtration great is that even though it reduces some of the digital sharpness, it still produces a cinematic image that doesn’t look soft-focused.Below is a nearly comprehensive test of all of Lee’s various diffusion filters. This test should help you see how powerful diffusion filters can be and what type of look each variety offers.last_img read more
