San Dimas 35, Northview 34

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SAN DIMAS — The San Dimas High School defense sacked Northview High quarterback Damian James on the final play of the game to preserve the win in the Valle Vista League opener for both schools. Following a voluntary safety by Saints punter Eric Samples, the Vikings got the ball back in San Dimas territory with just over a minute to play and a chance to win. James scrambled 23 yards down to the Saints 21-yard line, well within kicker Jeremy Hernandez’ range, but two false start penalties and the final sack gave the Saints the win. The Saints had only one pass completion in the game but it was a 15-yard touchdown pass from Samples to tight end Deryck Marquez midway through the fourth quarter. That gave San Dimas the lead, 35-32. center_img Ryan Richard carried 24 times for 148 yards and two touchdowns for the Saints. Richard was complemented by fellow running back Roy Curry, who added 75 yards on 12 carries. That included a second-quarter, 89-yard kickoff return that gave the Saints a 14-13 lead. James had 123 yards and three touchdowns on the ground for the Vikings. Will Davis carried 25 times for 175 yards and a 5-yard touchdown that gave the Vikings a 32-28 lead ending the third quarter. — Nate Hawkins last_img read more

DONEGAL COUNTY COUNCILLORS APPROVE BUDGET

first_imgDONEGAL County Council has approved its 2015 budget after a marathon day of talks in Lifford.Only Cllr Desmond Shiels opposed the proposal on how to spend €131 Million next year.The agreement meant there was no repeat of the scenes earlier this year when a last ditch attempt to block the budget by Fianna Fail and Sinn Fein – in protest at water charges – was stopped by independent councillor John Campbell switching to the Fine Gael/Labour camp. The council will have €17 million less to spend next year than it had in 2014.Fianna Fail councillor and party leader in the county Ciaran Brogan welcomed the 31 votes to one in favour of the budget spend.“There is unity among the parties and the parties are working now together for the good of Donegal and this what people want,” he said.“We are however short of funding and I hope we can put together a cross-party group to raise it with minister Alan Kelly.” Fine Gael’s Cllr John Ryan said he agreed with that idea and welcomed the cross-party agreement.Among the proposals are some incentives and schemes to encourage existing and new businesses.“We are in a position where the business community could benefit in the next year,” he said.Sinn Fein’s whip Cllr Mick Quinn said he hoped the council would benefit from capital funds and an overdraft facility.He said parties working together had committed to do their best for Donegal.

Reflections of 9/11

first_imgOur work in the Military Families Learning Network is to link extension and research to the work of military families services professionals–the ones in the military and in government and non-government agencies who are called upon to help military families.Brent Elrod, of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture and United States Department of Agriculture, sent us, in the Extension-Military Partnership, the following email to reflect on 9/11 and remind us of why there is an Extension-Military partnership and why we are developing a Military Families Learning Network.He challenges us to continue our personal, professional, and collective commitments to help strengthen and support individuals, families, and communities, particularly those in the military.Reflections of 9/11 (email sent September 9, 2011)With the tenth anniversary of 9/11 upon us, our thoughts return to the events of the day: where we were, who we were with, and the range of emotions we felt.The magnitude of the loss, the vulnerability, and the search for meaning were immediate, collective – and continue to reverberate to this day.Glued to our tvs, tears running down our faces, we sought comfort in the knowledge our loved ones were safe. We exchanged greetings with strangers, and noticed the absence of planes in the sky.I recall renewing my vow to return to Washington, D.C. that day. A personal pledge to do what I could – on a grander scale – to demonstrate that  good ultimately trumps evil.I know that others – I expect many of you – made personal promises of your own.We pause to honor those who lost their lives (or had lives altered) in the terror attacks, at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, as well as those who have sacrificed to protect the homeland since.We recommit to strengthen and support individuals, families, and communities through our research, extension and academic programs. Our efforts help ensure that 9/11’s lasting legacy includes the very clear message that hope will not – cannot – be denied.V/r,Brent ElrodActing Division Director – Family and Consumer SciencesNational Program Leader – Military and Veteran’s ProgramsDivision of Family and Consumer SciencesStrengthening Families, Farms, Communities and the EconomyNational Institute of Food and AgricultureUnited States Department of Agriculturewww.nifa.usda.gov/militarylast_img read more

Get the Most out of Your Online Advertising Budget

first_imgOnline ads and reels are essential in the indie production world. Make sure you’re spending your ad budgets wisely.Cover image via Shutterstock. In 2017, promoting your video content is dramatically different than it was only two years ago. Vimeo and YouTube are still the undisputed best platforms for showcasing your work. Vimeo Pro allows you to feature a 4k embedded video clip on your website without any kind of tag or watermark. YouTube has the greatest reach, integrated social features, and a very large community — and you can monetize original content.Both websites embed seamlessly with social media giant Facebook, which has become a revolutionary advertising tool. If you run a wedding videography business, for example, I would go as far as to say that a well-implemented sponsored Facebook post and an ad in the local newspaper is sufficient coverage for your immediate business area.However, when it comes to promoting your wedding videography showreel, or any video content on Facebook, you want to consider uploading your videos directly to Facebook instead of sharing them from YouTube. Why? Your audience will likely miss the post if you don’t.Image via Shutterstock.The Rise of Facebook In 2016, Facebook became a worthy adversary to YouTube. Facebook generates up to 8 billion video views a day, a figure that has grown by 75% since 2015. Facebook counts a view after three seconds, in comparison with YouTube, which counts a view after 30 seconds of playtime. On desktop browsers, videos play automatically by default.Facebook, naturally, will do everything they can to compete with YouTube, which, in turn, may cost you money if you’re spending a portion of your ad budget on sponsoring your YouTube video on Facebook.In late 2014, reports started to surface about a change in Facebook’s algorithm regarding how posts appear. If a user has hundreds of friends and follows many celebrities and multimedia pages, there’s only so much their feed is going to show. As a result, Facebook uses several algorithms to determine what information to show you. For example, posts from a page that you visit often will appear more frequently on your feed than a page you don’t interact with often. The same goes for your friends.Image via Shutterstock.So, what does this have to do with running a Facebook page for your production company? Well, Facebook also wants to keep people on the site as a long as possible because that translates into more ad impressions, which generates revenue. As such, Facebook will favor page posts that keep your audience on the site. A post with a status update or picture will appear more frequently than a post with an external link that will take your audience away from Facebook.More recently, this has translated into video posts. While Facebook isn’t going to kill YouTube videos, they will make sure a video uploaded directly to Facebook appears more prominently than a linked YouTube video. This is how you can begin putting your ad money to better use.Keeping Up AppearancesBack in 2011, YouTube videos would appear in a feed like this.Come 2017, YouTube videos now look like this.The dimension of the video preview became a lot smaller; it’s also square rather than 16:9, which doesn’t necessarily indicate that it’s a video. Further, the YouTube icon is long gone. In fact, text sourced from the YouTube description fills most of the space. Whether your audience is browsing on their phone, a tablet, or a desktop, the YouTube link appears smaller than any other shared content, and if you’ve just dedicated $300 to promote your latest reel, well, it might be wasted money.To expand your reach, and put your budget to better use, you should begin uploading your videos to Facebook directly. This is what a Facebook video looks like.As you can see, it appears more prominently across the display for all devices. As a result, you’re going to see a lot more plays. The preview of a Facebook video is relatively the same size as the preview of a picture, if not larger. Since videos have a 135% greater reach than photographs, you’re going to get a lot more coverage by uploading a video instead of sharing a YouTube link, even if you don’t boost the post.However, what if your company relies on YouTube, and Facebook is just your secondary platform? Well, many creators have worked Facebook’s video algorithm to their favor. Take Philip DeFranco, for example.DeFranco is an incredibly successful YouTuber who has built several companies off the success of his news channel — Discovery has acquired most of them. DeFranco uploads small segments of his daily news broadcast to his Facebook page, and if people want to watch the rest, they go over to YouTube.Many creators will also include the link in the comments or the description. It’s interesting to note that Facebook has recently removed the ability for pages and users to include a “watch more” button, which would direct viewers to an external site. Many who make a living using YouTube used this feature widely.Going ForwardThis isn’t to say you should only upload your content to Facebook and forego YouTube. However, if you are sharing video content on Facebook specifically to increase your consumer base or to promote yourself as a freelance filmmaker, you really want to upload that material directly to Facebook to maximize your reach. Of course, make sure you upload your reel to all of the other video sharing platforms, too. You never know who will stumble upon it.Which platforms do you use to showcase your reel? Let us know in the comments.last_img read more
