HARPS LOSE FURTHER GROUND WITH DEFEAT TO WATERFORD

first_imgAfter such a solid early season start, Finn Harps’ grip on the First Division appears to be slipping rapidly.Ollie Horgan’s side make the long trip home from Waterford after another missed opportunity to restart their season after a number of slip-ups in recent games.Two first half goals by the home side effectively left Harps facing a mountainous task in the second half. But despite a spirited comeback with at least three chances falling to Sean McCarron, Harps couldn’t get on the scoreboard.With the influence of the suspended Keith Cowan in the heart of their defence, Harps went behind in the 17th minute through Paddy Barrett.When Jack Doherty made it 2-0 just before the break in the 44th minute, Harps were already ruing the long journey home the length of the country.There’s no question Harps were missing the steadying feet and power of Cowan in defence and the skill and pace of Ruairi Keating up front. But Ollie Horgan knows he will have to get back to winning ways if the season is not to slip beyond the Ballybofey club’s reach in the coming games. HARPS LOSE FURTHER GROUND WITH DEFEAT TO WATERFORD was last modified: April 25th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:finn harpsWaterford Utdlast_img read more

Google Apps Gives Schools a Better “Walled Garden” for Student Email

One of the concerns that I heard most often expressed centered around students’ access to and usage of email – concerns about safety, privacy, and acceptable use. Will students mis-use email? Do parents approve of giving students accounts? At what age should a child get an email account?After all, while most of the tools provided via Apps for Edu can be locked down so that usage is restricted to a school or even a class, email gives you unfettered access to the world (or, at least those parts with email addresses).Locking Down GmailAs Gmail is arguably the cornerstone of Google Apps, some of the fears about students and email have likely hampered some schools’ adoption of Apps for Education. And for its part, Google says that having a better control over email is one of the most requested features from its K-12 users. So Google has made a change to Google Apps (not just for Education but for Business and Government customers too) that will let administrators establish policies specifying who their users can communicate with via email. These new controls can be be adjusted based on different user groups so, for example, school faculty and staff can have unrestricted email access while students can only email those within the school community.“Using these new controls finally gives us the ability to provide email to our 40,000 high school students. We are confident that this will help protect our children from inappropriate communications and excited about new class activities and collaboration that email will bring. Not all kids are comfortable speaking up in class and this gives many of them another avenue to approach their teachers,” said Laurie Tranmer, Email Services Manager at Prince George’s County Public Schools.The new feature is expected to roll out to Apps for Business, Government, and Education users within the next few days. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
