View comments How to help the Taal evacuees Mos Burger to open in Manila; teases with a pop-up Thomas is out, shipped to Cleveland in a package that brought Kyrie Irving to Boston and completed — for now, at least — a near-total makeover of the team that had the best record in the Eastern Conference last year.But that doesn’t mean Hayward is disappointed that the team he is going to play with looks much different from the one he thought he had joined.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smog“You’re talking about two superstar players, two incredible offensively talented players,” Hayward said Monday at the Celtics media day.“It would have been amazing to have the opportunity to play with I.T. I was looking forward to that; that was something that was enticing and exciting about the Boston Celtics. On the other hand, I get to play with another superstar.” LATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson DAY6 is for everybody The Celtics already had had quite the summer after they signed Hayward to a four-year deal worth about $128 million and traded Avery Bradley to clear cap space for him. When Irving asked for a trade, general manager Danny Ainge pounced, shipping out Thomas — a fan favorite and the team’s biggest star — along with Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a 2018 first-round draft pick.Irving would not say whether he plans to talk to Cavaliers superstar LeBron James about his trade demand, telling reporters: “It’s not anybody else’s business.”“It’s just really between two men,” he said. “If it happens or not, I’m pretty sure you guys won’t know about it.”For now, he is worried about his new team.“There’s just a lot of newness I have to get used to, which I’m excited about,” he said Monday. “It’s going to come in waves, man, these ups and downs we’re about to face as a team. … It will really echo in terms of our identity and how we’re going to respond.”ADVERTISEMENT In ‘Jojo Rabbit,’ Comedy and Drama Collide Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Trump says NFL insults about patriotism, not race Boston Celtics’ Gordon Hayward (20), Al Horford (42), and Kyrie Irving (11) walk together during a photo shoot at NBA basketball media day, Monday, Sept. 25, 2017, in Canton, Mass. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)CANTON, Mass. — Gordon Hayward was looking forward to playing with Isaiah Thomas, one of the Celtics players who recruited him to Boston during his whirlwind free agency.By the time Hayward steps on the parquet floor, though, there will be another All-Star point guard dishing out the ball.ADVERTISEMENT Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours MOST READ In all, just four players return from last year’s conference finalists: Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown, Terry Rozier and Al Horford.They’re all new to Irving, a four-time All-Star who averaged 21.6 points and 5.5 assists in his six-year career, all of it for the Cavaliers.Ainge said it wasn’t his goal to shake up the conference finalists.“Those guys were terrific players for us, and some of my favorite players that I’ve watched and been around during my time here. But we had a chance to get some players, too,” Ainge said. “It wasn’t because we were unhappy with our roster.”Ainge would like to see how it all works out.“We don’t plan on doing the same thing next summer,” he said. “I plan on getting down to about a 1 handicap next summer.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next
The long-awaited Telecommunications Bill will soon be tabled in the National Assembly. This comes after months of consultations with many of the relevant stakeholders.In a recent interview, Public Telecommunications Minister Cathy Hughes related to the Government Information Agency (GINA) that the date was still being finalised and should be completed before May 31.“There were extensive discussions, so what we want to do is to bring the legislation to the Parliament as soon as we can, and we arePublic Telecommunications Minister Cathy Hughesworking on that. I do not have a date yet, but I would envision it would be probably before the end of May,” Hughes pointed out.Once this Bill is passed, it is expected that it will specifically address the expansion of telecommunications services to remote areas. The Minister, however, pointed out that final adjustments were being made to the Bill by way of consultations with telecoms companies GTT and Digicel Guyana.It was noted that passage of the Bill would “allow Guyanese the opportunity to enjoy better telecommunications services, and wider and faster Internet bandwidth”. Hughes also noted that the Public Telecommunications Ministry was working with the telecommunications service providers to deliver enhanced services for visitors for the Jubilee celebrations. The Minister also told GINA that many people have already indicated that they were coming to celebrate Guyana’s 50th independence anniversary, so there is a need to make them comfortable.“We are working with the telecommunications companies to ensure that visitors are able to use their phones and will be able to have the technical support that they require,” she added.It was further posited that the Bill is being crafted to “build a competitive system in the telecommunications sector, and is expected to result in greater choice, better quality of service and lower prices for consumers”. To this end, it will provide for “an open, liberalised sector that will attract new markets and investors”.The Telecommunications Bill was introduced in 2011 and revised in 2013 in the 10th Parliament. In 2015, Government had given approval for two legal consultants to be hired to fine-tune and make adjustments to the Bill.

With the release of the 2016 Budget Consultation Paper, British Columbians are again being invited to share their priorities for the next provincial budget, set to be released next February 16th.The all party committee of the legislative assembly will be in Dawson Creek on September 30th and in Fort St. John and Fort Nelson on October 7th.The Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services began a series of seventeen public hearings this week in Victoria, and three of them will be in the Peace-Liard Region.- Advertisement -The Fort St. John hearing is scheduled to be held in video-conference room 183 at the Northern Lights College from 9 AM to 12 PM.The consultation paper provides information about taxes, employment and investments in priority programs like health care, education and job training.Those wishing to participate can do so at a community public hearing, by making a written, audio or video submission, or by completing an online survey.Advertisement The consultations offer BC residents the chance to share their priorities for next year’s budget with the government and you can learn more online.The deadline for submissions is midnight October 15th, and the committee will release a report on its consultation process in November.The hearings will conclude in Surrey on October 13th and this year’s consultations have been adapted to accommodate the fall sitting of the Legislature which is set to begin September 28th.Finance Minister Mike de Jong says the government remains on target to post a surplus this year, despite being hit with 380-million dollars in forest firefighting costs, more than six times higher than forecast.Advertisement He claims they’ve been offset by stronger income and property tax revenues, which are up by $374 million, and first-quarter estimates released this week project a surplus of $277 million this fiscal year – down, but only slightly, from the $284 million forecast in February.
At this afternoon’s City Committee of the Whole meeting council was presented with an outline illustrating the process that will take place in determining the future of the current RCMP building. Under review is whether the current building will be renovated, or if a new one should be constructed.Once the cost of each scenario is known it will then be presented to Council. Council will then determine what to take forward for an alternative approval process or referendum if required.Back in June of 2014, council approved the City’s Facility Master plan study. In the report one of the immediate recommendations was to begin planning on whether or not to renovate the current building, or build a new structure.- Advertisement -In August of last year City staff were given authorization acquire parcels of land next to the current RCMP building. That land has since been purchased.

Here at donegaldaily.com we know what a fantastic job this voluntary organisation does but we wanted to know a little more about the people behind the scenes at ‘Donegal Pet Rescue’. Our reporter Kate Haley gets the chance to have a chat with DPR’s Fundraising Director, Bronwyn Walsh.Kate: How did you first get involved with this organisation? Bronwyn: Looking to purchase charity Christmas Cards when first moved to Ireland (from Australia) in 2008, I eventually found Donegal Pet Rescue (DPR). I offered to help DPR out if they ever needed it – I started doing charity bucket collections (my husband Terence & I often dressed up in dog & cat outfits!) in shopping centres to help raise funds.Kate: What is your job?Bronwyn: As Fundraising Director, I am responsible for organising, co-ordinating (& doing) fundraising events, as well as school/community group visits, promotion of our work & generally spreading awareness & trying to get people involved. I also set up website & Facebook page & keep it updated with events & general goings-on (other volunteers look after the re-homing/fostering side of things).Kate: What made you want to volunteer? Bronwyn: Being new to the area in 2008 I wanted to become a part of the community & love being able to help animals. Even though DPR was established in 2000, I don’t think many people were aware it, so I wanted to help raise the profile of DPR & Animal Welfare in general. I also suffer from Depression & volunteering gives me a really positive mental boost. Dogs have always been a very important part of my life.Kate: What can people do to help ‘Donegal Pet Rescue’?Bronwyn: So many things! Help with fundraising, donate, attend events (or organise their own!), fostering, transport, volunteer in our Charity Shop (recently opened in Letterkenny). Most importantly, they can be responsible pet owners – look after their own pets by spaying/neutering to avoid unwanted pups & kittens, keep control of them so they don’t get lost, stolen; give them proper medical care. And if someone is thinking of getting a dog or cat, remember what a huge responsibility it is financially & time-wise – we have so many cases where people have taken in a new pet, only to find 6 months later they don’t have time for them. Always look at adopting a rescue pet – they not only save the life of that one dog/cat, but it means we can take on another, so 2 lives have been saved! One day we’d love to have a central shelter as well (at the moment we use foster homes all around the county) – so if anyone out there has land to give us…?Kate: What are the upsides to it all?Bronwyn: Knowing that I’ve helped make a difference, even if only a small one. Being part of a like-minded community (i.e. people that don’t mind if you’ve dog/cat hair on your clothes sometimes!) The sense of self-worth that comes from doing something I feel is worthwhile & as corny as it sounds, helping those that can’t help themselves. Anyone who does any sort of voluntary/charity work will know what I mean!Kate: What are the downsides? Bronwyn: Only being able to make a small difference. Never having enough time to achieve what I want to achieve. Finding the balance between work, DPR volunteering & personal life (what spare time??). People not understanding/appreciating that this is voluntary, and that we do what we can, when we can and that unfortunately are not always able to help/answer calls/ respond straight away as we 1) have limited resources 2) have “real” jobs/lives/study as well. Getting angry phone calls or personal confrontations from people telling us that we’re not doing enough/not helping them right now.Kate: Is it hard to find volunteers?Bronwyn: Yes. People have the best of intentions, but often don’t follow through or commit as much as we need them to. Volunteers sometimes have the expectation that you can’t expect the same standard/commitment (of work/time/attitude) as if they were being paid, but it is a really frustrating side of organising things. (I once had a bag-pack organised at a supermarket – 15 people had said they were coming – 3 turned up).We’re desperately short of fosterers & people to help out in the Charity Shop on Saturdays especially.Kate: How many other people are involved and what roles do they play? Bronwyn: We have 8 Dog Foster Carers, 3 Cat Foster Carers (across the whole of Donegal).We also have a few dedicated people that are constantly organising fundraising on our behalf. One of our long-term supporters (Marian McLaughlin) recently set up & runs the DPR Charity Shop which has been a huge boost for us, both financially & because it gives us a much-needed physical presence. Our Committee is made up of 7 people who cover roles such as Fundraising, Fostering, Helpline, Treasurer, Secretary, Chairman, Public Relations. Everyone in DPR is voluntary & though we each have ‘specific’ roles, when it comes to fundraising everyone gets on board as the majority of our funds come from voluntary donations (It costs us about €70 000 per year to do our work). We do have a core of dedicated supporters that come along to all of our events which is really important to us & very much appreciated.Kate: What is your goal?Bronwyn: To make Animal Welfare as high a priority in people’s minds as other worthy causes such as Cancer, Child Welfare, Homelessness, Domestic Violence, Mental Health & Depression. To make people understand & appreciate how rewarding having a pet can be, not just emotionally, but in terms of health, & also in various roles in some of the above Charities.Kate: What’s the most valuable piece of advice you’ve ever been given?Bronwyn: “You can only do what you can do.”Kate: What’s your favourite animal?Bronwyn: I’d have to say dogs. But I am very fond of cats, and horses, and donkeys. And wombats (growing up in country Australia I had all sorts of beasties as pets– I had a pet goat & a pet possum as well as always having pet dogs). Not so fond of mice due to experiencing first-hand a full-blown mouse plague in the late 1980’s! Kate: Is it hard letting an animal you’ve brought back to health go?Bronwyn: I don’t foster for exactly that reason! I’d end up with a zoo! But the animal’s happiness is the Number 1 priority so it’s always great to see them go to new homes (especially when we get updates from their new owners of their progress). It’s really lovely seeing our former animals with their new families at our events like Dog Shows & Dog Walks etc. I really respect the work of our Foster Carers because they do get attached, but know that they have to let them go.Kate: Do you have any pets of your own?Bronwyn: 2 dogs – both Rescues of course. ‘Scrap’ came with me from Australia (he was found wandering the streets in Sydney. He’s now 12 years old –we’ve had him for 10 years – I couldn’t leave him behind!); ‘Rosie’ was found in Inch Wildfowl Reserve in Burt – someone had hit her over the head & left her to die in the swamp. We’ve had her for about 3 years now.Kate: If you won the lotto, what would you do with the money?Bronwyn: Pay off the mortgage; Buy a big block of land & build an animal shelter; Go back to Australia for a visit (not been back since moving here); Get a housecleaner (!). Not necessarily in that order!Kate: What else do you do aside from this?Bronwyn: I work full-time at Glenveagh National Park in Visitor Services (as a Castle Guide & in the Visitor Centre). I also work the occasional shift at Kelly’s Restaurant Mountain Top.Kate: If you could have one wish what would it be?Bronwyn: That people would treat animals with the respect, care & admiration they deserve. That people wouldn’t have the attitude “…it’s only a dog/cat/horse/donkey…” (I know that’s 2 wishes…)Kate: Where do you see ‘Donegal Pet Rescue’ in 20 years time?Bronwyn: It’s been established for 12 years now, but I think we’re only just recently starting to build a real awareness of DPR & animal awareness in general here. I’d hope that in 20 years time we would be in a position to have a fully-functioning re-homing centre, and the same sort of public profile/awareness as places such as The Dogs Trust for example. (Though wouldn’t it be nice if there wasn’t a need for these places at all?)FEATURE: HELPING ANIMALS AT DONEGAL PET RESCUE was last modified: May 24th, 2012 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)
