Our young actors just need some professional training and industry guidance to help bridge the gap to more opportunities across the pond.”Launch of DMYT’s OLIVER! 2019 production in An Grianan Theatre: Linda O’Donnell (DYMT Administration), with cast members of OLIVER! 2019; Caitlin James Rose, Eoin O’Donnell and Orlaith McGing with London based Director, Séimí Campbell.Campbell, originally from Donegal Town, is working on a number of productions in London’s West End and has recently been nominated for Best Director for his gender-blind production of DYMT’s 2018 Jesus Christ Superstar in the national Irish Musical Theatre Awards.The evening started off with performances from DYMT students including a heart warming duet of Santa Evita by two of OLIVER’s youngest cast members Eimear McTeague and Leah Herron.Artistic Director of DYMT, Séimí Campbell, along with Herta Kelly (Musical Director), Amy Jordan (Associate Choreographer) and Ethan Barron who will star in the title role of Oliver this summer with DYMT.Donegal actor, Pat Ward, then officially launched this year’s production, in a very touching speech.

Opera Enables Unite in Latest Alpha of Opera 10.10 and It’s Actually Pretty Good

first_imgOpera currently only makes a small set of services available (you can find them here), but developers will be able to create their own services as well. In our tests, Unite worked just as advertised. We were able to stream our music, access our photos, and serve up a simple website. We didn’t test all of the available services, but there is also a file uploader that allows you to quickly upload a file to your machine at home, as well as a file-sharing service that allows users to host their own files. Another neat app is the “Fridge,” where you can post sticky notes for other users to see. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Product Reviews#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting You can make your services publicly available for everybody on the Internet, password protect them, or make them available only to you when you are logged in with your Opera credentials. There are obviously some security concerns to be considered when you run a service like this on your Windows, Mac, or Linux machine, though Opera obviously argues that Unite is secure.If you want to give it a try, you can download the latest beta of Opera 10.10. Just remember that this is beta software, and things will inevitably break. Today, just a few days after the release of version 10 of its desktop browser, Opera has already released a new beta alpha version of the next iteration of its flagship product. This version includes a few bug fixes, but most importantly, it also enables Opera Unite, the hyped and then quickly forgotten browser-based web server that Opera announced in June. Given that Unite will soon be part of the default install of Opera, we thought that now would be a good time to have another look at Unite and see if it lives up to its promise to “reinvent the web.” A Web Server on Your DesktopWhen Opera announced Unite, the company’s PR material said that it would “reinvent the web.” This is where Opera’s PR went wrong and may be the main reason why people quickly lost interest in Unite. Here is what Unite really does: it allows you to easily turn your desktop into a web server and run a number of web services like photo-sharing, file-sharing, messaging, forum, web server, and online media player right from your machine and access all of these services from anywhere. If you are currently using Simplify Media or a similar service, you are already familiar with the basic idea of how Unite works. Just like with Simplify Media, you can access these services only when the program is actually running on your computer, so it’s not a replacement for a hardware device like the Pologplug. center_img Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market frederic lardinois Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

Trying to Measure the LeBron Effect on Game Attendance

LeBron James may not show up for the Miami Heat next year, but whichever team he ends up with is likely to see a huge economic bump. James puts people in the seats.After reports leaked Tuesday that James would exercise his early-termination option in his contract with the Heat, some speculated that he’ll actually stay in South Beach next season. But teams are itching to clear cap space in the hopes of signing the NBA forward.We know plenty about James’s value on the court, but to get some sense of his economic value, we looked at how attendance changed before and while he was on the Cavaliers and Heat. As a baseline, the average NBA team’s attendance is about 90 percent capacity over the course of the season, but that varies wildly depending on a team’s winning percentage. (It also presumably fluctuates throughout a season.) I looked at NBA teams’ winning percentage and home-game attendance from the 2001-02 season through the 2013-14 season, and found that a team that wins 80 percent of its games — roughly 66 games in a season, probably the best record in the league — should average 100 percent capacity. Comparatively, a team that wins only 20 percent of its games will, on average, sell 80 percent of its tickets.It’s easy to see why winning fills arenas. Wins excite fans, give them hope for a potential championship, and (hopefully) are a display of entertaining basketball. James helps do that better than nearly anybody. Even controlling for success, a “LeBron Effect” materialized in the data. The teams he’s played for — the 2004 through 2010 Cavs and the 2011 though 2014 Heat — have home-attendance averages of 98.0 percent capacity, well above what their records would predict. Nearly all of James’s teams have sold tickets at higher rates than we’d expect for how well they performed. Note how for every season but one, his teams are above the line in the chart below.(Attendance here is measured by capacity, or the percentage of available seats sold. Sometimes capacity percentages rise above 100 percent because of imperfect stadium data, whether standing-room-only tickets are counted, etc.)Interestingly, James sells out even more so on the road, perhaps because he’s more of a novelty when traveling. Over the past six seasons — his last two with the Cavs and all four with the Heat — James’s teams away capacity has averaged 99.5 percent. (Because of imperfect data on away game attendance capacity, only the past six seasons were analyzed.) It’s no surprise that the relationship between a team’s winning percentage and its draw while traveling is much weaker — that is, the curve is flatter. But adjusting for how good the Cavs or Heat were in a given season, those teams with James on them sold out the house. Look how far above the line James teams are now:This analysis does not account for ticket prices, merchandise sales or any of the other revenue channels for James’s teams, so it’s just the beginning of the conversation about his economic worth. But wherever he ends up, two things are likely to continue: His team will sell out the home stadium, and his opponents’ box offices will be sad to see him go. read more

Mens Basketball No 17 Ohio State bounces back with 7156 win against

“I thought defensively, they were very very tough. I know around the basket especially around the paint things were hard. That made it for a difficult night for us.”Redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop, who entered the game leading Ohio State with 19.9 points per game, struggled in the first half, shooting only 3-for-7 from the field and missing both 3-point attempts. But a layup by Bates-Diop ended a 2:36 scoring drought for the Buckeyes with just over two minutes remaining in the first half. He finished the game with his ninth double-double of the season, scoring 13 points and led all players with 13 rebounds. Bates-Diop also led the game with a career-high five assists.Though he got off to a slow start, Bates-Diop was able to impact in other ways, demonstrating effective passes while also adding four blocks to his line score.“People continue to be really physical with him and he struggled with that at times. I think people are being extremely physical with him and he’s just got to handle it better,” head coach Chris Holtmann said. “But he still had a major impact on the game with his ability to as you mentioned, five assists, four blocks, 13 rebounds. That’s what good players do is they find other ways to impact the game and he did that.”The Buckeyes started the game hot, making 17-of-27 shots from the field in the first half.Ohio State was hitting shots from all over the court. The Buckeyes went on another 10-0 run over 3:17 with 8:35 remaining in the first half, starting with a 3-pointer from sophomore forward Andre Wesson and capped off by a shot-clock-beating jumper by senior forward Jae’Sean Tate. Tate finished the game with a team-leading 16 points and six rebounds. The Buckeyes held a commanding 38-23 lead heading into halftime. At the half, the Buckeyes totaled 16 defensive rebounds and three offensive rebounds. Ohio State finished the game with a 39-26 rebound advantage. With a made layup 47 seconds into the second half that put the Buckeyes up 42-25, Tate reached 1,400 points in his collegiate career. Tate tipped in a miss from junior guard C.J. Jackson that gave the Buckeyes a 56-37 lead and Tate his 700th career rebound. Freshman center Kaleb Wesson led the Scarlet and Gray with 10 points at halftime. He finished the game 7-for-7 from the floor and totaled 14 points and five rebounds. “It’s all great, but I just want to win. None of those really mean anything if you’re not winning games,” Tate said. “I think that’s just been my mindset all along. I’m a winner. Milestones are cool but I really want to get a ring this year.”Indiana sophomore guard Devonte Green finished the game pacing all players with 20 points off 6-for-10 shooting, including 4-of-5 from 3-point range. Ohio State freshman forward Kaleb Wesson (34) looks to make a move into the lane in the first half against Indiana on Jan. 30 in the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOhio State (19-5, 10-1) got back on track with a 71-56 win against Indiana (12-11, 5-6) to improve to 10-1 in conference play Tuesday night.The Buckeyes shot 56 percent from the field, compared to 36 percent from the Hoosiers. Though both teams struggled from beyond the arc with neither shooting above 33 percent from 3-point range, Ohio State dominated inside, outscoring the Hoosiers 40-26 in points in the paint.The Buckeyes went on a 10-0 run with 14:39 remaining in the first half, taking a 14-5 lead and never looking back. During that run, Indiana missed all of their five field goal tries and were scoreless for 3:22 until junior forward Juwan Morgan’s shot rolled around the rim and into the basket.For Indiana head coach Archie Miller, the physicality of the Buckeyes made it difficult for the Hoosiers to stay competitive in the game. read more
