Fitz powered up for Cork comeback

first_img “He’s in good order and we’re looking forward to running him,” said the County Cork handler. “I would think, if all goes well, we will be looking at Fairyhouse and the Powers Gold Cup back over fences for him – then we’ll see where we are with him. “He didn’t jump that bravely at Cheltenham and this looks to be a good chance to boost his confidence a bit. We gave him some time after Cheltenham and I had a bit of a quiet time with the horses around Christmas. “He’s in good form, though, and he has won on heavy before.” Rebel Fitz, the 2012 Galway Hurdle winner, will shoulder top weight in the two-and-a-half-mile heat which also features the Willie Mullins-trained pair of Tarla and Upsie. Won In The Dark was a dual Grade One winner back in the 2007-8 season and he represents Denis Cullen, with Jennies Jewel and Joxer completing the line-up. Rebel Fitz could book his ticket for the Powers Gold Cup at Fairyhouse with a good run at Cork on Thursday. The nine-year-old won five novice chases on the bounce over the summer and autumn, culminating in a Grade Three success at Tipperary in October. He took his chance in a two-runner event at Cheltenham later that month but despite being sent off the hot favourite, he had to settle for second behind subsequent Festival fifth Third Intention, and trainer Michael Winters then gave Rebel Fitz, who has shown his best on good ground, a lengthy break over the winter and he reverts to smaller obstacles for his return in the www.racinghomeforeaster.com Hurdle. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

3 Tips for Picking Your Documentary Subject

first_img3. What Is the Most Visually Interesting?The final question you should ask yourself deals with the superficial. What will the documentary look like, and why will people be interested to see it? It’s not always the case that what you’re interested in and have available to you, will be visually interesting to audiences. This is where you must look outside yourself, to friends, family or mentors to decide what makes your documentary interesting.When going through lists of the most financially successful (Really IMDb? Jackass 3D?) and critically praised documentaries, the subjects tend to be all over the map — but all seem to be attuned to interests and issues of their time.Perhaps one of the most definitive guides for the current climate of documentary filmmaking might be Michael Moore’s 13-point manifesto from his 2014 keynote speech at the Toronto International Film Festival.While you are filming a scene for your documentary, are you getting mad at what you are seeing? Are you crying? Are you cracking up so much that you are afraid that the microphone is going to pick it up? If that is happening while you are filming it, then there is a very good chance that’s how the audience is going to respond too. Trust that. You are the audience, too.Trust that. And get to shooting.How do you pick your documentary subjects? Have any other advice on how to choose? Let us know in the comments below! 2. What Is Available to You?If your first step involves looking existentially, the second step would be to look practically at what is available to you to shoot. Take a hard look at your resources and your flexibility to decide what subjects are available to you. If you live in Alaska and have a limited budget, it might be hard to follow an indigenous tribe in Papua New Guinea.That being said, as long as you keep a creative mindset, practicality is subjective to your ability to solve problems and adapt.  For inspiration, here’s a terrific mini-doc shot on a Canon T3i 600D. Here’s everything you need to consider when deciding the subject of your next documentary.Top image via ShutterstockSo you’ve decided you’re a documentary filmmaker. You’ve gone to film school (or just as good, you dropped out). You’ve studied the classics, from Flaherty to Pennebaker to Moore. You’ve watched every Vice Guide, Independent Lens and 30 for 30 feature ever shot. You’ve gone out in the field and you’ve honed your chops.Now, you’re ready to make your own path and shoot your documentary film.Question is: who or what is your film going to be about? And better yet — why?1. What Are Your Interests?The best place to start is by looking at yourself. Making a documentary is a very long process that sometimes takes years to complete. From research, to filming out in the field, to editing through hard drives of footage, you’ll need to pick a subject that won’t wear thin on your interest and focus.Here’s documentary filmmaker Kevin Lindenmuth talking more in-depth on the importance of your interests.last_img read more

London Olympics 2012: Action slows down in stadiums, but the buzz is still there on the streets

first_imgAs the 30th Olympic Games inch towards a grand finale, as the final weekend approaches, withdrawal is setting in.We have been so used to the hectic schedule of covering a multi-discipline event, which requires 16 to 18 hours of non-stop work, not to mention the travelling between venues, that now it’s almost like working in slow motion. For Indian journalists, all the action is now at the Excel Arena, with only the wrestlers vying for medals.It’s such a contrast from the first week of the Games, when we had one eye on the sport we were watching, the other following live updates on the cell phone or iPad, while the ears were busy listening to results from a third venue.A similar slowdown has also been witnessed in the transit system. The LOCOG buses are not crammed with tired, sweaty (yes even in the cool climate of London) journalists, while the volunteers look relaxed and less hurried. It’s almost like a cool down after a long, hard day in the field, with a bit of stretching before the players head off into the dressing room.However, the buzz at Leicester Square or Covent Garden in Central London is still the same. The bright lights are still shimmering as patrons from all over the world continue to throng the various eateries and designer boutiques.As soon as you step out of Leicester Square underground station, you’re welcomed by street performers and neon lights. Locals mingle freely with athletes and officials from various contingents. It’s almost as if the focus has now shifted from the on field competition to the sights and sounds of Central London.advertisementThis revelry is likely to continue late into Sunday night and Monday morning as London bids goodbye to the Olympic Games.last_img read more

YES but How…

first_img ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read: Posted on January 1, 2011June 20, 2017By: Zubaida Bai, Young Champion of Maternal HealthClick 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 email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)This blog post was contributed by Zubaida Bai, one of the fifteen Young Champions of Maternal Health chosen by Ashoka and the Maternal Health Task Force at EngenderHealth. She will be blogging about her experience every month, and you can learn more about her, the other Young Champions, and the program here.The day I returned from India, I was greeted by emails from a few of my contacts requesting JANMA – Birth Kit samples for Haiti, Tanzania and Ghana. Since I was too tired, I decided I would pack and send them the next evening. In the morning, in one of the meetings at Health Leads (the new name for Project HEALTH), we were talking about how many patients with critical needs were not being identified either by the provider or by Health Leads, resulting in them reaching a crisis situation. The question arose: how can patients and needs be identified in the first few visits so an expecting mother and family can have an easier time, and the silent, manageable issues don’t affect her health during pregnancy?It was decided that a volunteer and I will study all of the cases for the last three years and identify where the gap was and what Health Leads can do to with its partners to decrease this incidence. On my way back home, as I was going through the events of the day, I felt overwhelmed as I thought of the impact of the work being done by the Health Leads regional and national offices. It made me realize how crucial my work was going to be as it would help them measure and see the outcome of their impact. Later that evening at home as I unpacked feeling overjoyed that the AYZH birth kits were going to so many countries as samples, it suddenly struck me how was AYZH going to measure impact of its own offerings.In the bed at night, I thought of the impact I was going to make in the field of maternal health, what impact the other 15 Ashoka Young Champions were going to make, and what the impact of Ashoka as an organization was making by supporting us and our passions. Is there a way we could measure this impact? Wouldn’t it be SUPERCOOL to be able to put some numbers around this?As we approach the end of fourth month of the fellowship, I thought I should write a blog for the Young Champions to start thinking of the IMPACT: what, when and how should we as YCs be measuring to help Ashoka feel proud for having given us this opportunity? It is my firm belief that if you cannot measure your work, you cannot add value to what you do.Given the fact that the maternal health is a subject very difficult to measure, I started looking for the simplest definition in the field around what I found was a definition of maternal mortality by WHO in 1992 where it says “maternal mortality has typically been defined as including direct obstetric and indirect obstetric causes but not incidental deaths.” This definition by default negates all the silent factors around maternal mortality and health. As rightly pointed about Hellen Kotolo in her blog this month, it is difficult to see that HIV is not even considered an important issue in maternal health in developing countries. Given the fact that in this modern world where women’s rights are given high importance it’s a sad fact that safe motherhood remains the least prioritized topic in many developing countries.From my field work of over 5 years in the social sector, I have time and again observed that many silent issues go unaccounted for due to the lack of the ability to express them or, in terms of the topic of this blog, to measure them. Even though good intentions can go a long way, it is very important for professionals in the field of social good to make themselves, heard, seen and believed.So let’s do it… Measure our impact and bring to life the silent issues of maternal health.Share this:last_img read more
