“What I thought you saw today is the strength of our depth,” Wilson coach Tony Martinho said. “We came out really strong with our first six players. With the second group, we were able to maintain our lead. The strength you saw today was our speed and depth. We played a ball-control style once we got our lead.” Williams scored the Bruins (15-12)first goal as they jumped out to an 8-3 lead before surrendering two consecutive goals by Jackie Dandan and Alex Gurinee to make the score 8-5 at intermission Wilson responded by turning up its defensive pressure on the perimeter, and out-swam the visitors helping the Bruins opened up the third period with three consecutive goals, one by Kelsey Schafer and back-to-back scores by Kendall Wootten. The Griffins had an up hill battle throughout their contest. They rallied to tie El Toro on five separate occasions. But Kristen Henry’s breakaway goal at 4:47 in the fourth and her shot with 18 seconds remaining finalized the upset victory for the Chargers. “The girls did what I asked them to do,” Los Alamitos coach Dave Carlson said. “They worked hard and they played the whole game. El Toro seemed to hit every shot. They put away a lot of high-percentage shots. We had some good open-look shots, but they just didn’t go in.” In the nightcap of a double-header, freshman Jamie Williams scored four goals to lead Wilson’s balanced attack a 14-7 victory against Mater Dei and propelled the Bruins, ranked No. 6, into a second-round showdown with the winner of the Montebello-Edison game, both of whom defeated Wilson earlier in this season. Los Alamitos, No. 7, didn’t fair quite as well. Although Sarah Brady tallied four goals, the Griffins fell behind by two goals in the closing minutes of the fourth period to El Toro and couldn’t make up the difference losing by a score of 9-7. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Three Donegal TDs have made an official request to extend the closing date of Kilcar Post Office to allow locals to appeal the decision.Pat the Cope Gallagher, Thomas Pringle and Pearse Doherty have called on An Post to delay the closing date by six months. The TDs met with Minister of State at the Department of Communications Sean Canney today to ask him to support their request for an extension.More than 300 locals turned out for a public meeting on Monday to discuss the future of the Post Office in Kilcar. The community shared their shock and concern that the post office would be closed at the end of June.As a result of the meeting, the three TDs present were mandated to request An Post to extend the proposed closing date of the post office until December.This would give sufficient time to give the Local Action Committee and others an opportunity to make submissions and afford them the same opportunity as others when other closures were announced last year.It also gives an opportunity to the many businesses in the locality to highlight the importance of the Post Office, in an area which has 320 people employed locally and has a population of 1,740 people.

Add realistic volumetric lighting elements to your footage with this easy-to-use technique.I find that light rays are the one visual element that will enhance any composition. While cinematographers almost always capture the effect in-camera, you can also achieve the look in After Effects. You can use Red Giant’s Trapcode Shine to add realistic volumetric light to most scenes quite easily. The plugin itself is only $99; however, if you’re on a budget and need to trim expenses, you can use this technique in After Effects without a third-party plugin.Before we jump into After Effects, let me stress the importance of a visible light source in the shot. The digital version of this effect doesn’t work well if there’s no obvious light source.Creating a streak of light is easier than you might imagine. It takes only a few simple tweaks with a solid color layer. There are also three initial problems you may encounter when creating digital light rays in After Effects.If the camera is moving, you’ll need to track the scene.If someone moves in front of the beam, you’ll need to rotoscope them.If the light hits a surface, you’ll need to create a light spill.This is my shot; it’s an ungraded R3D file, shot on 50mm at f.2.8.The TechniqueCreate a new composition in After Effects, then create a new light color solid. Base the color of your layer on the color temperature of your shot.Lower the opacity of the solid to 50% so you can see the image underneath. Select the pen tool, and create a mask for where you would like the light to appear. Determine the incoming angle of the light as best you can. Once you have created your mask, increase the feather range from 250 to 350.Since my shot includes an actor, I can see the angle of the incoming light. I also have a shadow from the window frame, which I can use to my advantage later in the tutorial. You now need to change the blend mode to something that works well for your scene. There’s not one correct blend mode to use; it entirely depends on your creative aesthetics. You can use Overlay for a very soft light, or Hard Light for a more defined beam. With the blend mode set, lower the opacity to 25-35 percent.Now, the light is consistently bright across the entire image, when realistically it would dim slightly the further it travels. To fix this, we’re going to add a gradient ramp and place the start of the ramp at the window, and the end of the ramp just past the character. The start color will be the same color as our solid, and the end color will be the same hue but desaturated. Now we have a nice light falloff.At this point, it may look usable, however, if this were a video clip you’d quickly notice something is missing from the light stream: dust.Adding DustThere are two ways we can add dust into the light stream. We can either create the dust particles ourselves using CC Particle World, or we can use a video clip of a dust loop.There are pros and cons to each option. If we create the dust, we have complete control over the size and the direction of its movement, and we can even animate the dust to move when the actor disturbs the air. If we use the stock clip, we can add dust to our shot in under a minute.If you want to create the dust particles, here’s a great video tutorial.We’re going to continue here with the video clip method. Import your dust stock footage into After Effects (there are many, many free downloads on the internet), and place the dust particles above the solid color and scale the video down until it’s a reasonable size. Change the blend mode to screen, and you should now have realistic-looking dust particles.We now need to adjust the particles to conform to the path of the light. With the pen tool, create a mask, and draw around the light beam area, then give the mask a large feather. We don’t want the particles to disappear as soon as they leave the path of the light.Earlier, I mentioned that I have a shadow on the actor’s forehead, which I can use to my advantage. If your composition includes breaks in the light, you can further enhance the light beam by duplicating the solid layer and creating another beam above the break. It will help make the effect look truly organic.There we have it. This is the final result.I initially thought that the light beam passing in front of the actor would present a problem. However, after looking at examples such as this still from Skyfall, I noticed that you can see that the rays still pass in front of the characters because they are entering the frame at an angle to the camera. If the actor were standing in front of the beam with the camera in front of the actor, you would have to get out your rotoscope tools.Image via Eon Productions.Adding Volumetric Light and Dust ElementsAnother option is to add video overlays of light and dust elements to your footage or motion graphics.

India India 13-0 Macau: Looking back at India U-16 team’s biggest ever victory Atanu Mitra Last updated 2 years ago 23:13 9/3/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) AIFF Media India Macao v India India U17 Macao Asian Cup Qualification As the senior side get ready to face the East Asian country, they can take heart from a thrashing 33 years ago. When Sunil Chhetri and co. take the field against Macau on Tuesday to play an AFC Asian Cup qualifier, it will be the first time the senior teams of the two countries will lock horns in a competitive fixture.Macau, an East Asian country, which is famous for its mega casinos, however, hold a special place in the history of Indian football, as the India U-16 team’s biggest ever victory had come against them way back in 1984.It was the first edition of Asian U16 football tournament, which also acted as the qualifier for U16 World Cup 1985 – a competition that was made U17 from 1991- with Saudi Arabia and Qatar qualifying from Asia. India, coached by Syed Nayeemuddin were grouped in Group 2A along with China, Kuwait, North Yemen and Macau. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina The Blue Colts lost the first two matches and drew the third against North Yemen to bow out of the competition but salvaged some pride by thumping in 13 goals against a hapless Macau, who had conceded 48 goals in their first three matches (16 against North Yemen, 11 against China, 21 against Kuwait).However, not many of members of that team could make it to the mainstream of Indian football.Abhijit Roychowdhury, the prolific center-forward of the team, who had scored a hat-trick that day, played for a number of small clubs in Kolkata before getting arrested in 2002 for a murder case, where his alleged association with the city’s shady underworld came under the police scanner.Central midfielder Shanta Kumar, though, is a known face having coached Gangtok Himalayan SC and Sudeva Moonlight FC in the second division I-League in the last couple of seasons while Assamese Francis Barua went on to play for the likes of Salgaocar, Mahindra United and Mohammedan Sporting.PP Thobias, who was the captain of the side, was a pivotal part of the Santos club in Kerala which was very popular before the emergence of FC Kochin.The U17 national team has played a number of top-notch sides over the last couple of years and there is not much doubt about this being one of the best youth sides ever produced by India, but for the moment, their predecessor’s record stands tall.Scoreline:Bangkok, Aug 28, 1984:India 13-0 Macau : Avijit Roy Chowdhury (3′, 61′, 70′), Das Shyama Kumar (6′, 58′, 75′), Ahmed Khan (36′, 37′), Harry Devassagayam (14′), Prabir Barua (32′), Khadem Ningthemoth (33′), Shanta Kumar (66′) and P.
