As the clocks go back one hour this weekend and as we prepare for the onset of winter with evenings getting darker earlier, the Donegal Road Safety Working Group is urging all road users to take extra care on the roads.Brian O’Donnell Road Safety Officer is advising road users to be more cautious and to look out for other road users.“I would encourage all cyclists to check the lights on their bicycle, get the high-vis out and make sure you have got all the gear that you need. “For motorists, you always need to be cautious but certainly from next week on you will be sharing the roads in darkness with very vulnerable road users including school children, so everyone has to be more careful. All road users and pedestrians should stay safe and be seen.”“We all need to play our part in road safety, especially as it gets darker earlier. Road users must accept their responsibility, think about their actions on the roads and modify their driving to cope with winter conditions. Similarly, pedestrians and cyclists need to stay safe and be seen,”The “Be Safe Be Seen” message urges pedestrians and cyclists to wear bright, reflective clothing and to use lights where appropriate. Drivers are also being asked to make sure their cars are fit for winter and their tyres are in good condition.Lights should be clean, working and correctly adjusted while windscreen wipers also need to be in good condition. With foggy conditions very common at this time of year motorists are also encouraged to check weather and travel advice before making long journeys. From 1 November 2018 to date, 146 people have lost their lives in road traffic collisions on Ireland’s roads, 57 of those fatalities were in the months of November, December, January and February.Each one of us has the power to make a difference, so please let us all make safer choices when using the road.

Why Paratweet?Paratweet isn’t the first application to deliver Twitter moderation functionality – Twubs, for example, also offers a live events app with this capability. However, Paratweet offers a couple of extra features which gives it an edge.For one, it includes a profanity filter which you can turn on or off as desired – an item that was definitely on the wish list of pastors who wanted to use Twitter during their sermons or other church events, like youth group meetings. It also links the moderation app and display app via a secret code for extra security in order to make sure no one but those approved to do so can moderate the tweets. The code is unique to each event.Unlike using search.twitter.com, Paratweet lets you track multiple search terms or hashtags at once. As the tweets come in, you can optionally play or pause the stream – helpful if the speaker wants to respond to something on the screen without the distraction of more tweets streaming by.Unfortunately, all this Twitter goodness doesn’t come cheap. Paratweet offers two pricing plans: $299 for 6 months and one event (which you can use over and over) or $599 for 6 months and 3 separate events. The $599 plan also includes the onscreen question feature, something unfortunately not found in the less expensive plan. Alternately, you can save by purchasing a yearly license for $999. To try Paratweet for yourself, you can sign up here. This “Live Display Application” is an Adobe AIR app designed just for Paratweet and it’s meant to be run on the computer connected to the projector, LCD, or CCTV. Also, because you log in to the AIR app with your Paratweet account to pull the relevant tweets, you don’t have to perform the moderation on the same PC as the one being used for display, although you certainly could. sarah perez Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Related Posts If you’ve ever been to a conference or some sort of large event, you’ve probably seen a live Twitter stream in action. Up on a big screen in a prominent place, often the stage itself, the live stream tracks the relevant hashtags or keywords about the event, be it a conference, a panel, a meetup, or some other sort of heavily-tweeted gathering.But sometimes there’s an issue with displaying the raw, unfiltered tweets in this way: they can be disruptive. All it takes is one Twitter user trying to be funny – or, worse, a troll saying something rude – to take the discussion off course. Now there’s a new solution to deal with this problem: Paratweet.Paratweet is a new application that lets organizers moderate tweets about their event before they hit the big screen. With this, the potential disruptions are nipped in the bud, so they don’t become the focus instead of whatever’s happening on stage. Using ParatweetAfter signing up for a Paratweet account, you create a new event, set up some keywords or hashtags to monitor, and you can even enter an onscreen question for the audience to respond to, if desired. As the tweets begin to stream in, you simply approve or reject them by clicking the green plus sign or red X as necessary. If you don’t want to manually moderate tweets, you can choose to auto approve them instead. After you have a few tweets approved, you hit the button marked “Live Display Control” to start streaming the approved tweets to the “Live Display Application.” Tags:#Product Reviews#twitter#web The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit

Belgian cable operator Telenet is rolling out Latens’ software-based security solution, Titanium, across its customer base.To-date, the operator has deployed over 400,000 set-top boxes featuring Titanium. Telenet is adopting the software-based CAS alongside the other CAS deployed on its network. According to Latens, the software enables one system to run across multiple networks, which means Telenet’s CAS platform can grow and adapt in line with its services.Protecting our assets is extremely important to us,” said Noam Raffaelli, vice-president network and systems engineering of Telenet. “Given the size and diversity of our subscriber base, we needed a content security solution that we could install quickly and cost-effectively, but that would grow and adapt with our requirements. Latens understands our security goals and has also demonstrated that its software-based approach is inherently suited to a business like ours that must move swiftly to bring new services to market and stay one step ahead.”
