Donegal student and tractor enthusiast Caitlín Mc Gonigle has been chosen for another mighty adventure in her Massey Ferguson.The 18-year-old has signed up to do a London-Mayo tractor run next year for charity.The thought of a six day journey in a 1961 Massey Ferguson 35x (without a cab) doesn’t faze young Caitlín because a passion for tractors is in her blood. Caitlín’s grandfather Paddy Duffy sadly passed away in December 2018. The Greencastle man was a true tractor enthusiast and he left his restored Massey Ferguson to Caitlín.Caitlin with her grandad Paddy Duffy Caitlín completed a Dublin to Mayo Tractor Run in memory of Paddy in April, and the success of that journey has inspired the Carndonagh Community School student to go to even greater lengths.The London to Mayo run, which launched this weekend, will take place in April 2020. Caitlín will be travelling alongside ten men, including Donegal natives Richard Doherty and Ciaran Rodgers, on the charity adventure for the Daisy Lodge centre for children with cancer in Mayo. Caitlín said it was an honour to be invited on the extreme run and she jumped at the opportunity.Again, she will be thinking of her grandad Paddy as she prepares to get on the road.“Grandad had a big impact on my life and it’s so nice to be able to give back in this way,” Caitlín said.The late Paddy DuffyCaitlín raised a fantastic €6,500 ahead of her first tractor run this year, and she has set a goal to go beyond that in 2020.Keep an eye on her fundraising page – Caitlín’s Tractor Run Dublin to Mayo – for fundraisers and updates in the lead up to her next big challenge.Clonmany’s Caitlín chosen for extreme tractor run was last modified: December 1st, 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)
Two videos have got people talking: Americans trying South African foods, and a response from South Africa, with South Africans sampling American treats. The result? Laughter from both sides at the strange menus of other cultures. Americans got a chance to taste uniquely South African foods such as rusks and biltong. (Image: Screengrab via YouTube) • South African chardonnay judged best in world • When on an African safari, lock your doors • Rooibos refreshes the agri-tourism industry • Cape Town street life makes it the ‘Big Seven’ • Gallery: South Africa’s rich and colourful heritage Priya PitamberIn its video series of Americans tasting foods from various countries, news and entertainment website Buzzfeed featured South African items in one of its clips, released in early March.In the clip, a few teams taste typically South African foods such as rusks, biltong, fish paste, and koeksisters, made from sweet dough and fried and dipped in syrup.Of the biltong, one taster said: “It’s like cool bacon.” Another admitted it was difficult to chew. “It’s like you set out to make jerky but after a day, you get impatient and say ‘it’s good enough,’” another mused.Tasting fish paste, one of the participants asked: “When do they eat this? When children have been naughty?”Another, examining a koeksister, brought up the 1989 Disney movie, The Little Mermaid: “Off the bat, these remind me of Flotsam and Jetsam, Ursula’s little eel friends.”Eating rusks, a taster nailed it, saying: “You have to have tea to eat this.” South Africans, of course, love to dunk their rusks in their coffee, softening them.There are many varieties of rusk, with different regions laying claim to their signature recipe. The tasters got to try probably the most well-known brand, Ouma Rusks, which are sold at supermarkets across the country. Speaking about the logo – a picture of an old woman – a taster pointed out that she “was a prettier version of the woman who ate Hansel and Gretel”. Another suggested it would be a good idea to crumble the rusk over ice cream.Watch:Other videos in the Buzzfeed series include Americans trying German food, Israeli food, British chocolates, and Indian snacks.The Citizen Connect, a mobile focused digital news publication, reacted by asking if anyone actually hated biltong. “It’s the food of our people,” the site said, suggesting that something like bunny chow – a hollowed out bread loaf filled with curry hailing from Durban – should have been included in the tasting menu.Buzzfeed users also wondered why other famous South African foods were not included. Philippa Docherty commented: “What, no Peppermint Crisp?” Pete Cronin wondered why malva pudding was absent and Morné le Roux asked why there was no vetkoek. Vetkoek is a type of bread dough that is deep fried and stuffed with anything that takes the eater’s fancy – including mince or cheese, jam or honey.Others commentators were just pleased at the exposure. “Yay for South African food making an appearance!” said Chloë Rose Laubscher Jäger.Monday morning giggle: watch Americans trying SA food. Comments are priceless. http://t.co/4diYSx5Sj6 via @youtube — Gillian Rightford (@grightford) March 9, 2015The video was so popular, the South African morning news show, Expresso, decided to film a response, with South Africans tasting American foods. On the menu were items like pop-tarts, root beer and string cheese.A little girl said pop-tarts looked like “full-grown Oreos”; another taster said: “I will get double kisses from my babies if I get them this for breakfast.” The consensus for root beer was that it tasted like medication. The same little girl was adamant: “I do not want to taste that again in my life!”Watch:Again, the comments were thought-provoking. “It was an interesting video to watch,” said Covalent Bros. “I watched the Americans eat South African food version and was at times surprised at their reactions… However, you can’t really expect a different country and culture to like your culture’s food.”Another user, SunnySideOfTheStreet, said: “First the Americans try dry rusks, and now the South Africans try dry pop-tarts… They’re supposed to be toasted! And they go well with a cup of tea or coffee.”Remember when Americans tried to eat SA snacks? This is Saffas trying American snacks.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest No change in our forecast this morning, except we are extending our dry pattern another day. We now look dry today through next Monday. A few clouds may work across northwest Ohio later this afternoon and evening, but they likely do very little. Temps will be in the 70s and lower 80s again today, and then will slowly work higher through the rest of the week and weekend. We should be normal to above normal this weekend and nearly next week. As humidity builds late in the week, it will begin to feel more uncomfortable, but nothing like last week and last weekend’s heat. We still have moisture arriving early next week, but now it looks to mostly move through the state Tuesday, and have some additional action Wednesday. Combined rain totals will end up being around a quarter to three quarters of an inch with coverage at around 70%. However, on either day, we likely end up with coverage around 50%. This will be a slow moving, drawn out frontal boundary passage with a couple of pulses of moisture around. Then, we see a significant cluster of thunderstorms moving across southern IL and into southern Indiana overnight Wednesday night into Thursday August 1st. However, right now this looks like it could and should fall apart before getting into Ohio, so we are leaving strong thunderstorms out of our forecast at this time. The map at right shows rain totals through next Thursday. The extended pattern continues to hold some instability. After the stronger thunderstorms come in Wednesday night and Thursday, we have to allow for some pop up scattered showers over the rest of the state on through the following weekend. Right now, the set up holds with only 30% each day, but like we said yesterday, right now we also can’t rule them out anywhere either. This kind of pattern will support higher humidity and above normal temps.
Violence broke out on the Aligarh Muslim University campus on Wednesday as the row over Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s portrait in the students’ union office triggered a right-wing protest and clashes between students and protesters.A function to grant life membership of the students’ union to former vice-president Hamid Ansari, scheduled for Wednesday evening, was called off and he had to return to Delhi.At least six persons were injured when the police lobbed tear-gas shells to disperse AMU students demanding the arrest of the protesters who allegedly barged into the campus and burnt effigies of Jinnah and the AMU students’ union.Eyewitnesses said activists from right-wing groups allegedly thrashed the security guards of AMU when they tried to prevent them from entering the campus. The university students alleged that many of them, including AMUSU president M.A. Usmani, were thrashed by the protesters during the clash. They also claimed that the protesters, after being initially detained, were allowed to leave the police station.Security stepped upAligarh District Magistrate Chandra Bhushan Singh said that though two students were injured in the police action, the area remained clam and peaceful. He said two companies of Rapid Action Force have been deployed at AMU to ensure peace.Earlier in the day, a BJP Rajya Sabha MP, Harnath Singh Yadav, demanded the expulsion of Uttar Pradesh Labour Minister Swami Prasad Maurya from the party for praising Jinnah, which the Minister denied he ever did. Media reports suggested that Mr. Maurya had called Jinnah a ” mahapurush ” from the time of undivided India.He reportedly praised him when asked to comment on the row sparked by another BJP MP, Satish Gautam, who had objected to Jinnah’s portrait being displayed at AMU.(With PTI inputs)

Atletico suffered a heart-breaking 4-1 loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League final on Saturday For Atletico Madrid, this story line is a little too familiar.Match Photos Forty years on from conceding a last-minute goal in its only previous European Cup final, Atletico endured a similar ending Saturday as a stoppage-time equalizer helped Real Madrid rally for a 4-1 extra-time victory in the Champions League final.Atletico’s nickname the “pupas” – or “jinxed ones” – stems from the 1974 European Cup loss to Bayern Munich, which scored a 120th-minute equalizer to force a replay that it won 4-0.Atletico looked set to follow up its first Spanish league title in 18 years with a maiden European Cup when Diego Godin headed home in the first half at the Stadium of Light.But Sergio Ramos equalized in the injury time before Gareth Bale, Marcelo, and Cristiano Ronaldo completed Real’s win.”This match is not worth a tear,” Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. “The word to describe this feeling isn’t sadness but bitterness as we didn’t achieve the objectives we set for ourselves.”But tomorrow is another day.”Not only was Atletico just over 60 seconds away from erasing the painful memories of that 1974 final, but from completing the greatest season in club history with a historic double.Just one week ago Atletico secured its first Spanish league title in 18 years, an improbable triumph to become the first Spanish winner besides Barcelona or Real since Valencia in 2004.But Simeone’s decision to play injured striker Diego Costa set Atletico back as the Brazilian-born, Spain striker exited after just nine minutes. With midfielder Arda Turan also out to injury, Atletico’s players struggled over the extra 30 minutes with the team out of timeouts and running low on energy.advertisement”We were champions in the 93rd,” said striker Adrian Lopez, who replaced Costa. “We played a great game for 90 minutes and it was a shame we couldn’t avoid (Ramos’) goal.”It took Atletico 40 years for an opportunity to erase the memories of Heysel, the sight of the 1974 final and final replay. Its 10th league trophy seems a little less impressive on Saturday.”To win the league was marvelous and we were so close to such an important trophy,” Simeone said. “This will help us prepare for what is going to come next in the best way.”

Mertens also assisted Lorenzo Insigne in his winner to keep Napoli one point above Liverpool at the top of Group E, a BBC report said.Maradona, regarded as one of the best footballers in the world of all time, famously helped Napoli win their first league title in 1986-87.
Milan Marino: Milan regret buying Bonucci Sacha Pisani Last updated 2 years ago 11:36 1/10/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Images Milan Serie A Milan v Roma The former Napoli director feels AC Milan would have benefited more from investing the Leonardo Bonucci money in attack Former Napoli and Udinese director Pierpaolo Marino believes AC Milan already regret signing Leonardo Bonucci, claiming the big-spending Serie A giants wish they had brought in a “top striker” instead.Milan pulled off a coup in the off-season, prising Italy international defender Bonucci away from champions Juventus in a €42million deal.Milan 10/1 to beat Roma 1-0 Article continues below Editors’ Picks Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. The 30-year-old has not fully settled into his surroundings as Vincenzo Montella’s new-look Milan struggle for consistency, having already lost two of their opening six Serie A games this season.And Marino feels Milan – who signed forwards Andre Silva and Nikola Kalinic for 2017-18 – would have benefited more from investing the Bonucci money in attack.”I think Milan already regret buying Bonucci,” Marino told Rai Sport.”Montella didn’t want to switch to a three-man defence, but he found himself forced to change his plans by the arrival of Bonucci, but even that is not enough.”I think that if Massimiliano Mirabelli and Marco Fassone could go back in time, they’d spend that money to buy Bonucci on a top striker instead.”Milan face a big test Sunday, welcoming high-flying Roma to San Siro as pressure mounts on Montella following their loss to Sampdoria last time out.
