Donegal Senior Hurling ChampionshipSetanta 0-7St. Eunan’s 1-10 St. Eunan’s scored a significant win in the Donegal SHC over last year’s finalists Setanta at the Crossroads. Given the very wet conditions from the outset, scores were always going to be at a premium. The first half was a low scoring affair. An early Colm Breathnach free for the away team was cancelled out by two strikes from Kevin Campbell and Bernard O’Brien. A free on 17 minutes and a fine point from play from Seán McVeigh edged St. Eunan’s in front, but a late 65 by Campbell left the teams level at half-time, 0-3 each. On the restart McVeigh and Campbell exchanged points before a long range free by Campbell on 39 minutes gave Setanta the lead. Playing with the wind advantage, however, St. Eunan’s gradually took control. With Conor O’Donnell, Adie Gaffey, Colm Flood and Seán McVeigh dominating affairs around the middle of the field there was constant pressure on the home defence, where Shane Gallen and Mark Callaghan were outstanding. Points from Conor McVeigh, Sean McVeigh and a Eugene Organ free put the visitors two points in front with ten minutes left. A Campbell free on 52 minutes was cancelled out by the game’s standout performer Conor O’Donnell, who won a puck out on his own half back line and finished off the move after an exchange of passes. The home team kept coming back and another Campbell free set up a tense finish. In the last three minutes, two further McVeigh frees opened up a three point gap. The Letterkenny team finally sealed victory with a goal in the final moments, when a Conor Parke shot found the roof of the net.Both teams go forward to the next match in the SHC round robin, with Setanta away to Burt and St. Eunan’s facing Mac Cumhaills.

A man in a coma 19 years has regained some brain function, surprising scientists. Terry Wallis is relearning how to count and speak, and thinks Ronald Reagan is still president. The story of his remarkable recovery has been reported widely in the news (see Fox News) and was featured on both News@Nature and Science Now. What was surprising was that “his brain slowly regrew the nerve connections that were devastated as a result of his accident,” said Michael Hopkin for News@Nature, forcing neurologists to reconsider the dogma that hopes for recovery decrease over time. Although scientists caution against raising hopes for other patients, the case of Terry Wallis shows that the idea that there are hopeless cases may need to be reconsidered. Most of the reports claimed that patients in a persistent vegetative state (PVS), such as that alleged in the highly-publicized case of Terry Schiavo, are in a different category than that of Wallis. News@Nature ended, however, with a surprise finding even for PVS patients:Neurologists are reluctant to declare that PVS, the condition at the centre of the controversial debate over US sufferer Terri Schiavo, can ever be truly permanent. Earlier this year, researchers made the bizarre discovery that some PVS patients could be roused with a simple sleeping pill (see ‘Sleeping pills offer wake-up call to vegetative patients’).A report on World Net Daily says that Terry Wallis is able to tell jokes and, according to his father, “seems almost exactly like his old self.”The brain’s capacity to repair itself may be more remarkable than realized. The ScienceNow article stated, “the brain regions that survived Wallis’s accident forged new connections, perhaps in an attempt to re-establish contact with regions that were damaged.” It’s remarkable how much of his memory remained intact during nearly two decades out of touch with reality. This should give medical care professionals and family members pause when tempted to think a comatose patient is beyond hope. It also raises questions why a brain would try to repair itself, if reproductive success is the be-all and end-all of natural selection.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

Things that are perceived as difficult make outcome attainment easier and more certain. Things that seem easy make outcomes less likely.The idea of inbound lead generation is attractive in large part because it is perceived as being easier than more traditional prospecting methodologies. What could be easier than waiting for someone else to generate opportunities for you? But the traditional methods of prospecting, while more difficult, makes opportunity creation faster and more certain.Telling your people what to do, how to do it, and when to do it is easier than investing the time and emotional energy to help them grow. It’s faster for you, giving you back time to look at the dashboard and your CRM. If you want your people to be accountable and take initiative, then the more difficult work of investing time with your team is the easiest way to accomplish these higher value outcomes.It’s easy for leaders to see these mistakes, pointing out the areas where their team is looking for an easier way to generate an outcome instead of doing what is necessary. But leaders are not immune from this mistake. In fact, the very nature of leadership makes it easy to trade lower value task for more meaningful work. When you have to determine how to deal with systemic threats and opportunities that require significant change, easier decisions, the kind that do not require the same cognitive load and internal conflicts, are a safe place to hide. The hard decisions are the real work of leaders.Any attempt to avoid the difficult work makes the outcomes more difficult to obtain, and attempts at making outcomes easier only pushes those outcomes further away from you—and further out of your reach.

They have very good players and a team that is very strong every year.”I suppose I expected them to not be in that position in the table.”Because we won that game last season, it is in that moment we played in the way we wanted to.

Last season we beat them there when we were in a position that they are now.”Games are always different though, I am sure we will find an Everton with high pace and looking to get better results than their last games.”
