Source: Eoin O’CallaghanAnd that’s the crux of Celtic Soul, an Irish/Canadian documentary that sees Eoin O’Callaghan – and yes, there’s a real possibility you’ll see a piece by Eoin either side of this article as he writes for The42 among his many gigs — and Jay Baruchel examine the actor’s Irish roots and love of Celtic Football Club.Baruchel, of course, has appeared in movies such as Knocked Up and Tropic Thunder among others, but it was stint on the other side of the screen that first set Celtic Soul in motion.“I was in Canada between 2009 and 2012 and I presented this show on TV called Fox Soccer Report,” O’Callaghan told The42 from his Toronto base this week.“We had highlights from all around the world and, at the time, it was unique to North America. If you were a football fan, you had to buy this subscription channel because they had all the rights to everything.“Jay watched the show at the time so he kind of knew who I was. He didn’t know me well, obviously, but he recognised me.“Fast forward a couple of years to around 2013 and I’m back in Dublin looking ahead to 2014 and I was putting together an idea of a documentary that looked at the centenary of the first World War involving footballers who served in the army and went to the front.“One of the clubs I was really immersed in was Celtic because they go back so far and I found a really big link between the club and Canada.“In the middle of all that, Jay followed me on Twitter and at first I thought it was a fake account, not actually him. I followed him back, we exchanged pleasantries and that was it initially.“But then one night, I came back from the pub with a bit of Dutch courage and sent him a DM to tell him I was working on this Celtic thing and asked if he was interested in getting involved.“The following day he got back to me and he was totally on board.” Jay Baruchel (left), Eoin O’Callaghan (right) and two unidentified fans. Source: MarkhamStreetFilms/YouTubeOnce a Hollywood actor was involved, particularly a comedic one, a documentary about WWI didn’t make much sense for O’Callaghan so he and Baruchel began to explore the idea of documenting the latter’s love of Celtic while tracing his Irish roots.“Jay was heavily immersed in his family tree and spoke about his relatives leaving the west in the 1840s.“That was the real light bulb moment for me, that we’re not just tracing his ancestry but we can help him figure out why he’s drawn to a club thousands of miles away and I think what he found was that, coming to Ireland, there’s a big difference between looking at a census or Google maps and actually walking the streets of your ancestral home.” Source: Eoin O’CallaghanThis leads to one of the documentaries most touching moments, when Baruchel is on Peter Street in Westport looking at the exact location of the home of his mother’s ancestors.“I’ve walked this town dozens of times on Google maps. I know every inch of it,” he says before wondering about the conditions faced by his ancestors and how they coped with being treated like second class citizens in their own country.“For me, I was very much the Robin to his Batman,” say O’Callaghan, “but you can see the power and effect of being at home. Watching someone find out about the dramatic journey his ancestors had to take, the fact they had to hop on a ship because they were faced with nothing but darkness and death in that home.“They had a better chance just hopping on a ship, not knowing what was in store was still more appealing than staying in that place. Our time in Westport turned into a sequence that was quite lovely because, when you’re following a road trip with two idiots, there’s a lot of humour in it, but when you get those vulnerable, emotional moments, it hits you that bit harder.“There’s probably about three or four of those throughout the film and I hope they come across to people watching it.” Source: MarkhamStreetFilms/YouTubeWhile it is a road trip movie, the real journey is one of discovery, of taking that first trip to see a beloved team play in a flesh. While most of us experience that as children, what was it like watching an adult run the gamut of emotions?“For the entire journey that we’re on, Jay is this childlike figure.“Even in Montreal where we start, Jay is showing me what the Canadiens mean to him and we’re standing in the centre ice at the Bell Center and he can’t believe he’s getting to stand there in this iconic venue where his favourite team plays.“And every point along the way, he retains this massive child-like enthusiasm and wide-eyed take that we’ve lost.“For me, it was like feeding off a drug, it was reminding me of the love I had when I was a kid and what sport was really about, about losing yourself in the moment and letting sport wash over you.“He reminded me that it’s okay to be really silly and romantic and optimistic when it comes to sport and the teams we grew up loving.”And all those emotions come to life towards the end of the documentary when the pair arrive at Celtic Park and realise there’s a very good reason Bhoys fans call it Paradise.Celtic Soul premieres in Ireland across four different locations this weekend: Dundrum, Swords, Gorey and Dungarvan.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A team from the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund will on Monday start a rigorous check of Greece’s progress with implementing economic reforms.Officials from the three bodies are on a two-week mission to Athens to assess whether the government has met benchmarks required to draw down a second loan tranche in September from a 110 billion euros bail-out package funded by the EU and the IMF.The Greek Finance minister George Papaconstantinou said he was confident the next loan tranche would be disbursed on time as Greece had already outperformed the targets in an interview published over the weekend.He said, “We’ve fulfilled the June 30 targets, and gone a step further by having already passed the pension reform,” – a measure that had been due for completed later in the year, according to the EU-IMF program.Greece signed up in May to a three-year programme of fiscal and structural reforms in order to avert a sovereign default, after spreads on government bonds reached unsustainable levels.The fund said this month the government had made a “strong start” on reforms and was on track to achieve its target of reducing the budget deficit this year from 13.6 per cent to 8.1 per cent of gross domestic product.But it warned of looming budget overruns in public transport, the state healthcare system, social security funds and local government.The government should accelerate “privatising or closing down numerous state enterprises that have proven to cost taxpayers large sums of money,” it said.Greece’s lossmaking state-controlled transport companies – among them the railways and the Athens bus company – face mounting problems as domestic banks are refusing to provide operating loans in spite of state guarantees.The experts are expected to seek the immediate liberalisation of product and service markets, including the opening of so-called “closed” professions, from truck-driving to architects and notaries.“More needs to be done to overcome …. strong resistance” being put up by members of closed professions,” the fund said.The European Commission is pressing for a rapid deregulation of Greek energy markets, which could include a mandatory break-up of Public Power Corporation, the state electricity utility.The fund praised the government’s “determination” in pushing through fiscal reforms and a drastic overhaul of the state-funded pension system in spite of sustained opposition from trade unions.But Mr Papaconstantinou faces mounting opposition from within the governing socialist party to structural reforms that would result in large-scale redundancies at state enterprises.
Les chimpanzés seraient-ils plus intelligents que les humains ? En terme d’intelligence, les chimpanzés pourraient avoir des compétences plus élevées que les humains, au moins en ce qui concerne la mémoire à court terme, selon une nouvelle étude. Le 14 février, à l’occasion de la réunion annuelle de l’Association américaine pour l’avancement de la science, Tetsuro Matsuzawa, chercheur au laboratoire de primatologie à l’Université de Kyoto a présenté en vidéo les capacités étonnantes de son petit prodige, un chimpanzé connu sous le nom d’Ayumu. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Âgé de 12 ans et depuis toujours résident de l’Université, le mâle fait l’objet d’une très grande attention de la part des scientifiques qui le suivent pour ses compétences intellectuelles. Ainsi, Ayumu est régulièrement entrainé et soumis à des tests variés. Il est par exemple capable de mémoriser, en moins d’une demi-seconde, les 9 chiffres d’une série qui apparaît au hasard sur un ordinateur et retrouver la suite exacte parmi toutes les propositions affichées sur un deuxième écran.Un résultat qui démontre une capacité tout à fait exceptionnelle. En effet, en ce qui concerne la mémoire à court terme, Ayumu est dotée d’une aptitude que peu d’êtres humains peuvent prétendre posséder. Au cours de l’histoire, seules quelques personnes atteintes de grands troubles mentaux ont été réputées capable de réaliser avec succès un tel exercice, a affirmé à LiveScience Tetsuro Matsuzawa, chercheur à l’université de Kyoto. Néanmoins, il semblerait que tous les chimpanzés soient capables, avec de l’entrainement d’accomplir l’exploit d’Ayumu. Une faculté liée au mode de vie sauvage Sur six chimpanzés testés, tous ont démontré pouvoir se souvenir rapidement de la nature et l’emplacement des neufs chiffres. Selon les chercheurs, cette incroyable faculté est liée au mode de vie sauvage des grands singes. Ceux-ci sont régulièrement confrontés à des situations complexes qui les obligent à prendre rapidement une décision. Leur mémoire à court terme s’est ainsi développée de manière à pouvoir jongler simultanément entre une multitude de pensées différentes. Le 18 février 2013 à 16:13 • Emmanuel Perrin
After another dismal season for Arsenal, Gilberto Silva has urged the players to “stand up” and fight for the under-pressure Arsene WengerThe club look set to fail to qualify for the Champions League for a second consecutive season with 13 points separating them in sixth place from Tottenham in fourth.Following a turbulent run at the start of 2018, which saw Arsenal succumb to four consecutive defeats, Wenger came under intense scrutiny with both fans and former players calling for the Frenchman’s resignation.Silva, who was part of the famous “invincibles” squad that Wenger led to an entire season unbeaten in 2003/04, has defended the coach and has questioned the players attitude at the Emirates this season.“I worked with Wenger for such a long time. As I know him, he’s a person who loves the game and wants to win things. He sacrifices himself for the players and for the club.” Silva told Sky Sports.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“At the moment things are hard but he’s trying the best he can to handle the pressure and get the best out of his players. All the time the pressure is on him but there comes a time when you have to question what the players can bring back to him because he trusts them.”Arsenal have recently had an upturn in form with the Gunners having won their previous three games and having progressed to the quarter-finals of the Europa League.But Silva believes that it is the players’ responsibility to ensure the results come Arsenal’s way and has urged them to fight for the Frenchman.“It’s about somebody standing up and holding the pressure for somebody who believes in them. All the questions in the media talk about whether it’s time for Wenger to go or if he lost his appetite.” said the 2002 World Cup winner.“It’s not about this, it’s about the players at the club supporting him as long as he stays in the club.”
After his anticipated arriving from Burnley to Anfield, Danny Ings unfortunately was hampered by two knee ligament injuries that led to his sharp decline in the club.The 26-year-old striker has returned to Southhampton, his hometown, in search of play time but most importantly for the sake of happiness.Joe has reported the striker speaking to Times about his hard time while out of play for Liverpool and why he had to move to Southhampton. He cited the Champions League final as his saddest moment while not being able to play for Liverpool: “That was one of the moments that obviously broke my heart. For any player to play a part in the Champions League, coming on in games, to not then be part of the final was absolutely heartbreaking.“I did get game time towards the end of the season and it was great to have that feeling in the tummy when you stand in the tunnel. It got me wanting to feel that every week, which is what I am getting now at Southampton.“The lads at Liverpool all wanted me to stay, but understood. We used to play cards on the way to away games and it was a different feeling for me because I wouldn’t be starting.Virgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“I would cover that up, and I hid that, because I didn’t want to bring any negativity to the group. But it didn’t stop me going home and just sitting in the house with my dogs and being upset. That happened for a long time.“Although I was happy around the lads and everyone at the club, on a much deeper level I know I wasn’t as happy as I can be. And, when I am happy, I play my best football.”
Gareth Southgate has given an indication that England’s youngsters might get the nod in their upcoming games against Croatia and Spain.Southgate spoke glowingly about the young guns in training. The former Boro boss selected three teenagers, Jadon Sancho, James Maddison, and Mason Mount, for this week’s UEFA Nations League matches.Others gunning for a second appearance include Leicester’s Ben Chilwell and Tottenham’s Harry Winks.The England boss believes the young lads will contribute their quota to help England get positive results in the Nations League despite their inexperience.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“We are here to try and get a result so the team we play will be a team we believe in,” Southgate made this known to Sky Sports in Rijeka ahead of the game against Croatia on Friday evening“There is nobody in the squad that is here that we are not thinking of putting into the team.“It is not experimentation. They are players we believe in. Okay, they are relatively inexperienced at the highest level but players we have enjoyed working with and they have shown in training this week they can handle this level.“We will pick the team that we think is the best one to win the game.”
CORAL SPRINGS, FLA. (WSVN) – Fire crews battled a Coral Springs apartment building fire that left dozens displaced, Monday afternoon.Twenty-four units were damaged by the fire at the Ramblewood East Condominium at 4180 NW 88th Ave., just before 1 p.m.Coral Springs Police and Fire Rescue remained on the scene throughout the day.Fire Rescue managed to extinguish the heavy flames.“When our units arrived, there was heavy fire coming from the back patio from a second floor unit,” said Coral Springs Fire Chief Mike Moser. “That fire had already progressed out to the patio and was already in at least one or two rooms inside of the unit.”It went up into the attic and spread to the adjacent units. — Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department (@CoralSpringsFD) February 12, 2018Flames could be seen shooting through the patio of one of the apartments in the complex.“When I stepped out, I saw the whole patio engulfed in flames,” said resident Maria Smith. “It was quickly running from one section of the building to the other. It was very frightening.”According to officials, the fire began in a corner unit. The fire then moved into the apartment and engulfed two bedrooms, they said. That’s when the fire rose to the common attic area before spreading to other units.“Our firefighters made an attack from the inside of the unit to attempt to push the fire out,” Moser said.Resident Sheila Mardy said she was sleeping inside at the time of the fire and only woke up when a friend called her.“I run outside, and the whole hallway is covered in smoke, so I run back inside, throw on some pants, grab my wallet, grab my keys and I left,” she said. “What was I supposed to do? As soon as I walked outside, I saw the whole next door apartment covered in red, like straight fire.” The Red Cross is assisting those displaced. They have set up a temporary shelter in the community’s clubhouse.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Mardy called her mother to tell her the bad news. “She said, ‘Mommy, the house is on fire.’ I’m like, ‘What do you mean the house is on fire?’” said Margaret Moisette. “She said, ‘Yeah, Mommy. The house is gone, everything gone.’”The terrifying part of it for Mardy is knowing that she could have slept though the fire. “I’ve never been in a fire before,” Mardy said. “It was scary.”Hours after the fire, some residents were escorted back inside to retrieve a few essentials like medicine.“Only water there, water everywhere, the bed, everywhere,” said Terlien Florvilus, who retrieved his medication. “Everything’s gone in the house now.”No injuries have been reported. However, two cats that were inside did not make it out.“Thank God my daughter is OK, but everything inside the apartment is gone,” Moisette said.As officials remained at the scene Monday evening, those who lived in the apartment complex made arrangements to stay with family or friends.

At an Apple conference held in San Francisco on June 6, Apple introduced iOS 5, the latest version of its mobile operating system, which now includes the Newsstand, a virtual set of shelves that display users’ subscriptions with the latest issues of magazine titles.Also new to the App Store is an app that features only magazine and newspapers titles that offer a subscription model to customers.In the Newsstand feature, each of the user’s chosen titles are updated automatically, “so you always have the latest issue and the most recent cover art,” according to a news statement from Apple.The Newsstand is part of the Apple’s new iCloud technology, which enables Apple users to move all data to the cloud. After entering an Apple ID and password, “iCloud will seamlessly integrate with your apps to automatically and wirelessly keep all of your mail, contacts, calendars, photos, apps, books, music and more, up-to-date across all your devices without ever having to connect to a computer.” Apple announced its subscription model in March that allowed publishers to sell subscriptions through the App Store (for a 30 percent cut of each sub purchased and Apple keeps user data automatically, unless users choose to share data with publishers). Bonnier, Conde Nast and Hearst are among the publishers that have since signed on to sell subscriptions through the App Store.Gregg Hano, vice president/group publisher with Bonnier, says, “We feel the launch of the Apple Newsstand is another great move in the right direction…this move will help make Popular Science content more easily discoverable for consumers interested in our subject matter.”

For much of the uprising, Aleppo largely remained on the regime’s side, with little rebel activity. The city’s businessmen could use their influence, threats and payoffs to make sure of that _ with tens of thousands on their payrolls and the countryside dependent on them.What few anti-Assad demonstrations that did take place early on came from the dormitories of the University of Aleppo, home to students from rural parts of the province.Then the rebels from the countryside launched their surprise attack on the city in July. They moved into its impoverished, mainly Sunni districts, where residents are mostly of rural origin. They have since used those areas as their base from which to wage their bid to take over the city. To this day, all of Aleppo’s rebel-held areas are poor, while the city’s affluent parts remain under government control, with life there reportedly continuing much as it had before.Once inside the city, the ranks of the rebels swelled with Aleppo volunteers bitter over their poverty.Mohammed Al-Ali, 25, is one of them.Just back from a two-day stint on the front lines in Aleppo _ “the enemy was no more than 15 meters away from our position,” he said _ Al-Ali is fighting as much for social justice as for freedom. In a blue tracksuit and tennis shoes, he spoke of a father with a meager pension of $200 and a family so poor he had to drop out of school and take various jobs in shops to make ends meet as prices skyrocketed across Syria in the past decade.“We sold everything in the house that we did not absolutely need,” Al-Ali said.Besides being a fighter, he earns a monthly wage of $80 as a helper in a field hospital.“I am hoping that when this is over, I will go to university and study Arabic literature. This is my dream,” he said.The rural fighters also bring with them their more fundamentalist religious outlook, which the trauma of war has only deepened. Most rebels in Aleppo wear beards, a hallmark of piety, and their conversation is filled with verses from the Quran or sayings attributed to the Prophet Muhammad. They frame the fight in a religious context and speak of martyrdom as something they wish for.They often trade stories of miracles showing God’s support for them.Waiting at a field hospital as one of his fighters was treated for shrapnel wounds, a rebel commander who goes by the nickname of Abu Ekrimah recounted one such tale to a comrade.The burly, bearded commander with piercing hazel eyes _ his vest full of ammunition magazines and an automatic rifle slung over his shoulder _ told how a long-bearded man with a reputation for piety once gave his brigade’s fighters some homemade grenades. He instructed them to ritually wash themselves as if for prayers and then throw them while shouting, “God is great!” Comments Share Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project “We followed his instructions, and we could see that when we tossed them, they changed course in midair to score direct hits against the enemy,” Abu Ekrimah said.“God is great!” his comrade exclaimed at hearing the story.For some of the Aleppo rebels, the war against the regime has inspired a turning point in their personal journey of faith.The rebel Abu Ahmed has images stored on his mobile phone of party dresses he once designed as a tailor working in Egypt, Lebanon and Aleppo: low-cut, strapless, see-through in parts. He says designing such revealing dresses was part of a past he has now put behind him.He also has a picture of himself with a bruised forehead and a deep cut under his left eye _ what he said was the result of a beating from regime loyalists while taking part in a street protest in May 2011. He now is an ambulance driver for the rebels, who revere him for his seeming fearlessness in battle zones.“Initially, I wanted it to be a peaceful revolution against the regime, but now it is a war fought in defense of our faith,” according to the bearded Abu Ahmed.It is impossible to gauge the degree of support enjoyed by the rebels in the parts of Aleppo they control. The rebels acknowledge that many residents are fed up with the hardships they endure. Four benefits of having a wireless security system “The city of Aleppo has not really joined the revolution,” acknowledged one 32-year-old fighter who goes by the name of Abu Ahmed and is from the nearby town of al-Bab. “All of us are from rural Aleppo.”Like some other rebels, he spoke on condition he be identified only with that nickname _ by which he is widely known among his comrades _ fearing that use of his real name could bring retaliation on his family.The battle for Aleppo is a stark illustration of how Syria’s conflict, now in its 19th month, is as much a revolt of the underclass as a rebellion against the regime’s authoritarian grip.The countryside surrounding Aleppo is dotted with small farming towns where the population is overwhelmingly Sunni Muslim, with a social fabric built around strong family and clan ties, primarily guided by local customs and a conservative brand of Islam.In contrast, Aleppo’s estimated 3 million residents are a mix of Syria’s main ethnic and religious groups _ Sunni and Shiite Muslims, Alawites, Christians, Kurds, Turkomen and Armenians _ with a relatively liberal lifestyle.The northern city is home to a powerful community of factory owners, manufacturers and merchants, mainly from prominent Sunni families, who were largely allowed to operate without government interference while the Assad family’s Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shiite Islam, kept its grip on political power. Regime forces punish the city daily with artillery and airstrikes. Civilians are killed and wounded while standing on bread lines, walking the streets or watching TV at home. Snipers target civilians in areas where rebels have positions. The staff at the rebels’ field hospital said 80 percent of the 100-120 cases they treat daily are civilians.Even in rural Aleppo, there is a degree of disgruntlement over the impact of the fighting on the local economy. State-supported farmers’ associations that once sold fuel, seeds and fertilizers no longer do so. Black market prices for the items are so high it’s not worth planting some crops when the season starts in December.The fighting also almost completely shut down markets that traditionally bought their produce of wheat, barley, chickpeas and olives.“Supplies were available for the last farming season, but this season will be a very difficult one,” said Mazen Aleto, a local council member in Tel Rifaat, a village north of Aleppo. “There may not be a harvest this time.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) The blend of poverty, religious piety and anger could define the future of Aleppo, and perhaps the rest of Syria, if the rebels take over the country’s largest city, which is also its economic engine. They may be tempted to push their own version of Islam, which is more fundamentalist than what is found in the city. Their bitterness at the business class may prompt them to seek ways of redistributing the wealth.“Those who have money in Aleppo only worry about their wealth and interests when we have long lived in poverty,” said Osama Abu Mohammed, a rebel commander who was a car mechanic in the nearby town of Beyanon before he joined the fight.“They have been breast-fed cowardice and their hearts are filled with fear. With their money, we could buy weapons that enable us to liberate the entire city in a week,” he said.With neither side able to decide the battle after three months of fighting and with winter fast approaching, however, the rebels from the countryside in Aleppo province risk losing the popular good will they have enjoyed from their fellow impoverished Sunnis in the city.On Saturday, civilians pelted a group of rebels with broken glass as they headed to the front line because they feel the fighters’ presence brings the regime’s destruction down on them, according to an Associated Press photographer and cameraman who witnessed the incident. 5 treatments for adult scoliosis Associated PressALEPPO, Syria (AP) – Most of the rebels fighting government forces in the city of Aleppo fit a specific mold: They’re poor, religiously conservative and usually come from the underdeveloped countryside nearby.They bring to the battle their fury over years of economic marginalization, fired by a pious fervor, and they say their fight in the civil war is not only against President Bashar Assad but also the elite merchants and industrialists who dominate the city and have stuck by the regime. The rebels regard this support for the government to be an act of betrayal. Top Stories Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Sponsored Stories Arizona families, Arizona farms: working to produce high-quality milk The flashpoints of the uprising have been the poorest parts of the country.It began in March 2011 in the impoverished southern province of Daraa. A drought hitting parts of the country displaced tens of thousands of people from farming areas, putting more pressure on the economy. The city of Homs, which has been a main center of the rebellion, is known as “the mother of the poor” because the cost of living is lower and its population generally less well off. When Damascus saw its worst fighting yet in July, it was largely in the capital’s poorer districts that the rebels operated.The gap between rich and poor across Syria grew in the more than a decade of free market economic policies initiated by the late Hafez Assad and accelerated by his son, Bashar, when he took power in 2000.Focused on the service sector, the new policy benefited a tiny segment of the country’s 22 million people, particularly a clique of regime-linked businessmen and the mostly Sunni merchant class in Aleppo and Damascus, who have largely stuck by Assad. But the policies also triggered steep price increases that reduced many Syrians to poverty, particularly among the country’s broader Sunni majority. Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix
