Bord Gáis Energy Ladies National Football League Division 1…….Donegal v Kildare, O’Donnell Park, 2.00, (J Niland)This is a crucial game for both sides but for vastly different reasons.Donegal remain just three points behind top of the table Monaghan and will be looking to push for a home semi-final with two wins in their final two games, while Kildare can ease the pressure of relegation with a much needed win. Kildare will be encouraged by the number of points conceded by Donegal’s defence this year but will need to be wary of the Donegal attack with the likes of young Geraldine McLaughlin in superb scoring form, scoring 10-09 in Donegal’s five League games to date.LADIES GAA: DONEGAL V KILDARE PREVIEW was last modified: March 25th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click 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 share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegal ladies gaakildaremclaughlin
COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Hurricane damage to Gulf of Mexico shipyards battered Northrop Grumman’s third-quarter earnings, the company reported Tuesday, while fellow defense contractor Lockheed Martin said it had higher quarterly profits across its space, information technology and aircraft divisions. Despite the mixed sector results, the companies said their earnings were helped by business segments outside of big military hardware – such as fighter jets and aircraft carriers – for which they are perhaps best known. Government IT and electronics sales, for example, rose for both. “We are not heavily dependent on one contract to achieve and deliver strong results,” said Christopher Kubasik, chief financial officer of Bethesda-based Lockheed Corp., the nation’s largest defense contractor. Despite the broad results, both companies are warily watching the Pentagon for indications on how big spending programs will fare in future defense budgets.

Kubasik said the company expects modest growth in defense spending and doesn’t foresee major cuts, but Lockheed forecasts flat revenue for several airplane programs next year, including the F-35. Ronald Sugar, chief executive officer of Los Angeles-based Northrop Grumman Corp. said the military’s new focus on areas such as intelligence and surveillance can help the company, which makes equipment that includes unmanned spy planes. But programs like the DD(X) destroyer face reductions, and he said it is difficult to read the messages sent by the Pentagon. “There will be a lot of twists and turns,” Sugar said in an investor conference call about Pentagon discussions of budget cuts. Northrop reported net income of $293 million, or 81 cents per share, up from $278 million, or 76 cents per share, in 2004. Revenue was flat in the latest quarter at $7.4 billion. The company also said Tuesday that it plans to buy back $1.5 billion worth of its stock. Earnings were hammered by hurricanes Katrina and Rita, which damaged Northrop’s shipyards in New Orleans, Pascagoula, Miss., and Gulfport, Miss. The company, the world’s largest ship builder, said it could take up to a year to fully recover. In the meantime, it plans to house as many as 1,000 workers in temporary homes as it rebuilds. The storms reduced the operating margin of its shipbuilding unit by $165 million, or the equivalent of 30 cents per share. Northrop’s sale of 2.1 million shares of Endwave Corp. helped to offset the impact by adding $81 million, it said. Despite the ship building losses, the company showed growth across all its other business units, including its missile sales, information technology, electronic warfare and space program. It’s the third-largest defense contractor in the U.S. after Boeing. “They are doing well in everything else,” said Paul Nisbet, an analyst for JSA Research. Lockheed reported earnings of $427 million, or 96 cents per share, up from $307 million, or 69 cents per share, in the 2004 third quarter. The company had $9.2 billion in sales compared to $8.4 billion a year earlier. The company raised its guidance for 2005, predicting that it would earn between $3.85 and $3.95 per share, up from previous estimates of $3.60 to $3.75 per share made in July. For 2006, it expects earnings between $4 and $4.25 per share on between $38 billion and $39.5 billion in sales. While defense contracts still account for the majority of Lockheed’s business, the company has beefed up its other business units, such as information technology. About 40 percent of the company’s sales now come from outside the Pentagon, Kubasik said. Lockheed shares fell $1.12, or 1.8 percent, to close at $61.23 on the New York Stock Exchange. Northrop’s stock fell 98 cents to close at $52.92. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

The United States braced Sunday for a second day of furious protests against Donald Trump’s ban on travellers from seven Muslim countries as the White House doubled down despite a partial stay from a federal judge.Protests were scheduled outside the White House and in New York’s Battery Park, which looks across to the Statue of Liberty-America’s famed beacon of freedom and immigration-and expected at airports nationwide.Trump signed the temporary ban as an executive order on Friday afternoon, suspending the arrival of all refugees for at least 120 days and barring visa holders from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.Also affected were foreign dual nationals, who may not have needed a visa to enter the United States, for example British citizens, and at least initially green card holders already on the path to US citizenship.The inclusion of green card holders sparked particular outrage, leading White House chief of staff Reince Priebus to backpedal Sunday, telling CBS television that the ban “didn’t affect them.”Nevertheless they are still liable to face “extreme vetting” at US borders upon arrival.The travel ban triggered shock and confusion, as well as a wave of anger at home and abroad, sparking demonstrations Saturday at airports in Washington, Chicago, Minneapolis, Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Dallas.Travelers were detained at US borders, splitting families-such as a father unable to reach his son’s wedding, and a grandmother unable to meet her grandchildren-and officials warned it was a “gift to extremists.”On Saturday night, a federal judge in New York partially blocked the order, saying that US authorities could not to deport refugees or other people detained on arrival.But Trump-the New York real estate billionaire turned Republican commander-in-chief-was unrepentant Sunday, defending his policy in the face of growing outrage across the globe and from Americans at home.“Our country needs strong borders and extreme vetting, NOW. Look what is happening all over Europe and, indeed, the world – a horrible mess!” he tweeted to his nearly 23 million followers.Bannon promoted -The Department of Homeland Security said it would comply with court orders not to deport those already detained, but said it would otherwise continue to enforce the order.“Prohibited travel will remain prohibited, and the US government retains its right to revoke visas at any time if required for national security or public safety,” it said in a statement.Trump fanned further disquiet by giving controversial adviser Steve Bannon, a founding member of far-right website Breitbart News, a permanent seat on the National Security Council at the expense of other security chiefs.While Bannon was promoted, the Director of National Intelligence and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff will now be present only when “their responsibilities and expertise” are required, said an executive memorandum.The exact number of those affected by the travel ban is unclear, but Judge Ann Donnelly ordered the government to provide lists of all those detained at US airports since the measure went into effect.She issued the emergency stay late Saturday night but did not broach the constitutionality of Trump’s order to the anger of protestors at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, where thousands had gathered.“People are prepared to stand against this” said David Gaddis, 43. “Every day he’s in office, it’s a national emergency.”Deporting those travelers following Trump’s order exposes them to “substantial and irreparable injury,” Donnelly wrote in her decision.The American Civil Liberties Union went to court after two Iraqi men, one of whom had worked as an interpreter for the US military after the 2003 US-led invasion, were detained on arrival at JFK.Overseas outrage -A second federal judge in Virginia issued a temporary order restricting authorities for seven days from deporting legal permanent residents detained at Dulles Airport just outside Washington.The order follows through on one of his most controversial campaign promises, to subject travelers from Muslim-majority countries to “extreme vetting”-which he declared would make America safe from “radical Islamic terrorists.”The State Department has said that only people holding a dual citizenship with the US will be allowed to enter.The plan triggered a fierce political backlash, but was endorsed by Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.Democratic lawmakers have also been up in arms, seeing the ban as an opportunity to galvanize outrage to the new president.“This is not who we are,” wrote former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Twitter.German Chancellor Angela Merkel slammed the restrictions, saying it was “not justified” to target people based on their background or religion and a spokesman said Berlin will examine the consequences for German citizens.British Prime Minister Theresa May, who met Trump in Washington on a charm offensive last week, said she did “not agree” with the restrictions.British athletics legend Mo Farah, who was born in Somalia, called it a policy of “ignorance and prejudice” that could keep him apart from his family, based in Oregon, while he is currently training in Ethiopia.And in Iraq, a key partner in the war against jihadists for more than two years, there were calls for a reciprocal ban on US citizens.
On January 29, Microsoft Cloud services including Microsoft Azure, Office 365, and Dynamics 365 suffered a major outage. This resulted in customers experiencing intermittent access to Office 365 and also deleting several database records. This comes just after a major outage that prevented Microsoft 365 users from accessing their emails for an entire day in Europe. Users who were already logged into Microsoft services weren’t affected; however, those that were trying to log into new sessions were not able to do so. How did this Microsoft Azure outage happen? According to Microsoft, the preliminary reason behind this outage was a DNS issue with CenturyLink, an external DNS provider. Microsoft Azure’s status page read, “Engineers identified a DNS issue with an external DNS provider”. CenturyLink, in a statement, mentioned that their DNS services experienced disruption due to a software defect, which affected connectivity to a customer’s cloud resources. Along with authentication issues, this outage also caused the deletion of users’ live data stored in Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) databases in Microsoft Azure. TDE databases encrypt information dynamically and decrypt them when customers access it. As the data is stored in encrypted form, it prevents intruders from accessing the database. For encryption, many Azure users store their own encryption keys in Microsoft’s Key Vault encryption key management system. The deletion was triggered by a script that automatically drops TDE database tables when corresponding keys can no longer be accessed in the Key Vault. Microsoft was able to restore the tables from a five-minute snapshot backup. But, those transactions that customers had processed within five minutes of the table drop were expected to raise a support ticket asking for the database copy.
