A ‘Donegal Signature Dish’ event has been planned for next week to highlight the most delicious food the county has to offer.All that is good about Donegal food will be showcased at the special event in Harvey’s Point when some of Donegal most talented chefs, food suppliers and trade representatives will be joined by guest food writers and bloggers at the inaugural event.The event which is being hosted by Donegal County Council in association with Donegal Tourism is about celebrating Donegal food and fresh local produce and is a great opportunity to promote Donegal food and people who champion it – chefs, restaurants, suppliers and artisan producers. Restaurants across the county were invited earlier this year and encouraged to submit their signature dishes, which would then undergo a selection to form a menu for the event. The dishes had to consist of Donegal sourced ingredients and feature on the current or seasonal menu.The final tasting menu is a balanced selection of ten dishes from around the county; those dishes will be served on the night and each chef will also have an opportunity to share the story behind the dish with the audience.

8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Product Reviews#web OpenOffice, which, according to our latest poll, is one of the most popular word processors among our readers, just announced the first release candidate for OpenOffice 3. This is the first major release of OpenOffice since 2005. Most of the updates are a lot more subtle than Microsoft’s switch to the Ribbon interface in Office 2007, but the team has added a lot of new functionality and user interface enhancements to the OpenOffice suite that make this a worthwhile release for those who already use OpenOffice.In its early days, OpenOffice (and Sun’s StarOffice before it) was basically a clone of Microsoft Office, but now that Office 2007 has introduced the Ribbon bar, the look and feel of OpenOffice has remained true to the original. In this new version, OpenOffice has modernized the user interface a bit, but overall, there are no major changes to the interface and users of version 2 should feel right at home in this new release. frederic lardinois Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts New FeaturesAmong the new features is a re-designed commenting function, which now displays comments from different editors with colored backgrounds. Also new in this version is the ability to view two pages of a document side-by-side, which, given the size of a lot of modern screens, is a welcome addition.Other new features include a zoom function in the status bar for both the spreadsheet and word processing applications, the ability to create larger spreadsheets, and a presenter mode in Impress.OpenOffice can open and write documents in the OpenDocument format. It can also read Microsoft Office 2007 files, but it does not have the ability to write them.More Love for Mac UsersFor Mac users, the new version also brings some welcome updates. Most importantly, the new version does not rely on X11 anymore, but finally uses the native graphics libraries of OSX and adheres to Apple’s HCI guidelines.It’s Not Office 2007We have been long-time users of Microsoft’s Office 2007 on the PC now, and as much as we love open-source software and open standards, going back to OpenOffice feels a bit like a trip back in time. If you are still using a older version of Office, you will probably feel right back at home in OpenOffice 3, but we do not see a lot of Office 2007 users go back to OpenOffice. The Ribbon bar in Office 2007 represents a major productivity enhancement and having to search your way through long drop-down menus again just feels slow and old-fashioned at this point.

James Turner, The Canadian Press WINNIPEG — Manitoba’s children’s advocate is urging the province to stop lengthy solitary confinement of youth in custody after a review that found one boy was isolated for 400 straight days in a cell no bigger than a parking stall.Daphne Penrose and provincial ombudsman Marc Cormier jointly investigated the use of solitary confinement, segregation and pepper spray in Manitoba’s youth jails.Penrose said in a 100-page report released Thursday that the province should immediately end solitary confinement longer than 24 hours for kids in custody.She also recommended that Manitoba Justice restrict the use of punitive segregation overall and called on the province to build a facility to address trauma, mental illness and other mental impairments youth who are locked up in jail frequently live with.“Some youth in Manitoba have been confined in solitary, denied their basic needs and refused meaningful human contact for days and weeks on end,” Penrose said of the youth, called Colton in the report, who spent more than a year in isolation.Colton was diagnosed with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, attention deficit disorder and other cognitive issues, she said, and spent a total of more than 650 days in solitary.Penrose called Colton’s case “a clear violation of human rights, of international standards.” “What we discovered … was extremely concerning, unacceptable and must immediately change,” Penrose said at a news conference.The investigation began in 2015 after the advocate’s office fielded several complaints about segregation and pepper spray in Manitoba’s two youth jails: Agassiz Youth Centre and Manitoba Youth Centre.The review found that between September 2015 and August 2016, youth corrections staff placed 167 males in solitary confinement 498 times. About 20 per cent of cases lasted for more than 15 days.The advocate defines solitary confinement as being placed alone in a cell for more than 24 hours without meaningful human contact or mental stimulation.Statistics Canada data shows Manitoba has the highest rate of youth incarceration in Canada with more than 80 per cent being Indigenous.The advocate suggested use of solitary confinement and segregation is harmful to youth and hurts their chances at successful reintegration into society.“Ultimately, (it) may increase recidivism and compromise public safety.”Penrose did find that the use of pepper spray on jailed youth declined dramatically to two instances last year from 2010’s high of 46.Staff told investigators that may be due to “alternative de-escalation methods” such as talking to youths and having patience to wait out a situation.In a separate report, Cormier made 32 recommendations on segregation, largely focused on reviewing compliance with correctional services laws and regulations.Gathering data was difficult as records weren’t systematic or complete, he said. Corrections employees had a “systemic misunderstanding” about what documentation was required and that led to “miscollection” of information.“Without that data collection you are making poor decisions.”Cormier suggested that jails be made to have policies that make clear that segregation can’t be used as discipline. He also called for changes to require youth be informed of their rights and access to services.Manitoba Justice has accepted his recommendations and will put them into place by March 1, Cormier’s report said. Penrose said she has not yet heard from the ministry.Last week, the province announced a review into the connection between youth justice and child welfare. One of the goals is to try to keep “crossover kids” out of jail. A study of admissions at the Manitoba Youth Centre in October showed about 60 per cent of youth facing charges were also involved with child-welfare services.
