I would like to thank the Fianna Fáil membership who have nominated me to contest this convention. I feel honoured that the grassroots membership of the party feel that I have the qualities to be a Dáil candidate and a potential TD,” commented Cllr Collins.“Having consulted with the membership it is my view that the Fianna Fáil party should run two candidates in the four-seat Limerick City constituency.

No-hitter — Baseball Reference reported that through 2008 there was a no-hitter pitched every 1,505.5 Major League Baseball games. There’s probably more of a chance for a golfer to knock in a hole-in-one at Granite Pointe Golf Club than an eight-ender to be counted at the Nelson Curling Club.But seeing how there’s four feet of snow at the Rosemont-based golf course, it was time for the curling club to take over the limelight.Murrey Lewis of Nelson scored the amazing once-in-a-lifetime feat Saturday during the Mixed Valentine’s Bonspiel at the Heritage City club.It’s a feat so rare the odds of scoring one are nearly impossible to know.“No I didn’t realize it was a possibility until I was getting ready to throw my first rock (seventh stone),” Lewis told The Nelson Daily when asked about his accomplishment.“I still thought the opposition would take at least one rock out,” Lewis added. “He (the opposing skip) tried with his last rock, but it over curled and he just nudged it over. His rock rolled out of the house leaving me a draw for our eight.”The Curl BC website said a team from the Peace Arch Club was the 100th team in October 2013 to feature in the 8-ender gallery. But it took years for those 100 8-enders to be counted.The Peace Arch rink scored the 8-ender on October 11, 2013.The high-scoring feat is so rare, Ford of Canada used to run the “Eight-Ender Program” and register each one and then reward Canadian rinks who scored eight points in one end.The Lewis rink, including third Lori Lewis, second Bob Fortin and lead Marianne Lefley, scored the eight points in the fifth end of a 14-3 victory in the B event.The rink didn’t win the bonspiel, finishing fourth in the B event.But that didn’t seem to matter to the rink after realizing the accomplishment.“This was the first time scoring and eight-ender for my teammates and myself,” Lewis said.“Really it was after the game that it all hit home, and, yes, exciting to say the least after 25 years of curling.”An eight-ender ranks with some other improbabilities in sports and life. Hole in one — Golf Digest estimates that an average handicap player has a 12,000-to-1 odds.

It will take about $850,000 to stage the 26.2-mile race if the City Council approves the marathon, he said, adding that most of it would come from sponsorships and registration fees. Estrada said special events expert Kathy Kinane, whose company most recently staged the Pacific Shoreline Marathon, will attend the meeting with city staff. Councilman Sid Tyler said he thinks the council has a generally favorable view of the marathon concept, as long as it has a strong financial footing. “I think the concept is wonderful, particularly if it became a regular annual event,” Tyler said. “It would help put Pasadena even more on the map, and when these things are done right they become kind of weekend events, with ancillary events that would benefit the city and local businesses. … That’s where the major revenue and costs are. But can this operation pull it off?” Tyler said he feels “very strongly” that the city should be reimbursed for public works and police costs and that the marathon would have to generate enough revenue to cover whatever expenses are involved. Eric Duyshart, Pasadena’s economic development manager, said city staff wants to get a “good sense” of the level of potential sponsorships for the marathon and will work with Pasadena Forward on modifying the route originally proposed. “The route they submitted has all sorts of issues,” Duyshart said. “It might be a nice scenic route through Pasadena from the runners’ standpoint, but shutting down all sorts of streets throughout Pasadena is not something we take lightly.” Councilman Chris Holden said closing some city streets for a part of one day was a “modest trade-off for something that could be really positive” for the community. “I think it would be a wonderful thing for Pasadena, it would do a great job in linking communities,” Holden said. “It would be nice to support it – not just voting for it but getting out there and being a part of it.” Holden, however, sees himself more as a bike rider who would “graduate to running and walking in future years.” “I ran in the \ Marathon on a dare back in 1995 and it almost killed me,” Holden joked. “But as long as I have a couple of years to train, maybe.” For more information, go to www.pasadenamarathon.org.

PASADENA – Plans to stage a Pasadena Marathon and Bike Tour next year are inching along, with organizers confident they have the community support and potential financial backing to pull it off. “We’ve been overwhelmed that so many organizations and individuals have come to the forefront,” said Israel Estrada of Pasadena Forward, the volunteer group working on the event. “We’re putting the final finishing touches to the written proposal” to go before the City Council, Estrada said. “We’re meeting with city staff on Tuesday, planning the route. … There could be a whole lot of adjustment, but so long as \ happens, we’re happy to make any adjustment they want.” So far the group has raised nearly $21,000 through “founding members” and other donations, and Estrada estimates upward of $30,000 is needed to pay for the initial planning costs.

Even more noticeably, API requests more than quadrupled over the last four months, with 4 billion requests in October turning into 20 billion requests in January. What do these numbers reflect? According to the blog, part of the growth seen in API requests comes from at least one terribly inefficient device. “One of our device implementations accounts for about 50% of the total API calls,” writes Jacobson. “That same device, however, is responsible for significantly less streaming traffic.”Is that what happened in October? Or is Netflix’s increasing emphasis on streaming showing up in the API numbers as well? We do know that Netflix started its streaming program in Canada around this time, as well as its program in the U.S. – is that enough to cause API requests to quadruple in such a short period?The company did say that it added 3.1 million subscribers in Q4 of 2010 alone. If the switchover to streaming-only subscribers is showing up in the API request numbers, then an API redesign is certainly the next step before making the plunge overseas.

According to its recent earnings report, the company added 7.7 million subscribers in 2010, more than doubling the 2.9 million it added in 2009. Today, the company announced on its technical blog that it would begin redesigning its API – the software interface that allows your XBox, Google TV or Roku to stream content and apps like Instant Watcher to pull content from Netflix’s catalog – and shared some interesting stats regarding its use over the past year.According to Netflix director of engineering Daniel Jacobson, “the transformational moment for the API was when we started to use it to deliver the streaming functionality to Netflix ready devices.” mike melanson

AP FILE PHOTOBOSTON — Gordon Hayward of the Boston Celtics says he knows he will not play again this season, after needing surgery to repair a grotesque leg injury on opening night last month.The announcement, on Hayward’s Facebook page, came as little surprise given the severity of the injury. Hayward wrote about several previously unrevealed aspects of the injury and the aftermath, including how four people — including Celtics coach Brad Stevens — were needed to carry him onto the plane that night in Cleveland, and how even former President Barack Obama has been among those sending well-wishes for his recovery.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Read Next MOST READ Senators rally support for Robredo; laud her for accepting anti-drug post PLAY LIST 02:46Senators rally support for Robredo; laud her for accepting anti-drug post00:50Trending Articles02:29Giannis Antetokounmpo powers Bucks in bounce back win over Celtics01:37Protesters burn down Iran consulate in Najaf01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.

Hayward was one of the marquee prizes of free agency this past summer, leaving Utah and signing with Boston to chase an NBA title and reunite with Stevens, his college coach at Butler.“I keep imagining what it’s going to be like to step onto the floor at the Garden, and make my regular season debut as a Celtic,” Hayward wrote. “It’s going to be a little delayed. But with each day of my rehab, I’ll be that much closer to making it happen. I’m already dreaming about sharing that moment with everyone here in Boston.” Hayward said when he saw his foot pointing the wrong way after his awkward landing, the pain was not initially very intense. It was, however, when doctors tending to him on the floor tried to re-set his ankle.“The moment they did it, there was just a massive shot of pain, probably the most pain I’ve ever felt in my life,” Hayward wrote.The Celtics lost in Cleveland that night, and Hayward was with the team for the flight home. The Celtics played their home opener the next night, while Hayward was in surgery.“On the flight back, my teammates all came by to encourage me,” Hayward wrote. “It was very emotional for me to see how all of these new teammates of mine, guys who I had only spent a few weeks with at that point, were so sincere about their concern for me. Their support has at times overwhelmed me and it will not be forgotten.”Hayward said he’s heard from plenty of stars from the NBA and other sports, like NFL stars Odell Beckham Jr. and J.J.

But he’s started watching, and hopes to have some sort of role the rest of the season.“I know I can’t help them physically on the court, but I am going to do everything in my power to support my teammates and coaches in every way imaginable,” Hayward wrote. “Whether it’s breaking down film or just providing leadership and guidance, I can’t wait to give back.
