To many fans and the general public, Onduparaka FC is God sent.Yusuf Andabati, one of the managers of Haraka FC in Yumbe district from where Onduparaka FC has picked 10 first squad players since its inception says that Onduparaka’s unique playing-style which made it defeat most of the local clubs in the region has not only inspired many youths, but also given back in kind to various categories of needy communities in Yumbe.He says that the teams rise to prominence rides more on players from Yumbe district, a development that will forever make them proud.In Koboko district and the Municipality the fan base of Onduparaka and its impact on the Kakwa people cannot be underestimated according to one of the first fans in the area. According to him, the Club has made a tremendous achievement of keeping many youths out of idle life as they are engaged in sporting activities with Onduparaka FC.Koboko district has so far sent two players to Onduparaka FC, Ezra Bida and Geriga Atendele.Omar Risasi, commonly known in West Nile as Muzee Onduparaka from Maracha district, has been part of each and every match the team played, over the last 10 years. The 70-year old says he has devoted his life to support the team as an inspiration to generations to come.In greater Nebbi district and among the Alur people, Onduparaka has continued to inspire and enjoy unlimited support from the fans and sports lovers and more importantly contributing to the rise of Paidha Black Angels, which has lately suffered relegation from the Premier League. Onduparaka’s home ground Greenlight Stadium was home to Paidha Black Angels for two seasons prior to Paidha’s elevation to the league.Innocent Opargiue, the chairperson of Onduparaka Fans in greater Nebbi says the love for Onduparaka has been deep-rooted in the Alur people basing on the club’s triumphant record over the years. He says apart from inspiring many youth and football lovers in Alur land, many businessmen and women have become agents and dealers in Onduparaka Jersey’s which has enjoyed record sales in the greater Nebbi.As the club prepares to celebrate its ten years in the UPL, it has been challenged by the departure of its key players. It, however, hopes that some of its problems will be resolved when they eventually establish a football academy for the U17 team and find a sponsor.According to Benjamin Nyakuni the CEO Onduparaka FC, there is need for all the people of West Nile to forget their differences and unite to make the club achieve more in the years ahead and promote football talent in West Nile.******URNShare on: WhatsApp

Taxpayers will get a three-month reprieve to pay the income taxes they owe for 2019, but you still have to file by April 15th, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Tuesday at a news conference.As part of its coronavirus response, the federal government will give filers 90 days to pay income taxes due on up to $1 million in tax owed, Mnuchin said in Washington. The reprieve on that amount would cover many pass-through entities and small businesses, he said.Corporate filers would get the same length of time to pay amounts due on up to $10 million in taxes owed, Mnuchin said.During that three-month deferral period, taxpayers won’t be subject to interest and penalties, he said.You should still get your 2019 income tax return in to the federal government as soon as possible, especially if you’re due a refund and need cash.While the federal government is granting taxpayers a little more time, you should still check in on your state’s position.Some states have rolled out delays due to coronavirus.For more on the IRS guidelines and the coronavirus listen to 850 WFTL’s interview with tax expert Lawrence Levy from Levy and Associates.https://www.850wftl.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Lawrence-Levy.mp3
England had to settle for fourth place in both the men’s and women’s European team championships after their double bid for bronze medals ended in disappointment. The men lost 4-3 to Sweden with team manager Terry Casey commenting: “We were again left to reflect on getting nothing out of the day when we had played our hearts out.” Meanwhile, the women were beaten 5-2 by Spain and team captain Elaine Ratcliffe said: “The girls played good golf this week and rallied hard but in the end came across two teams who played fantastic golf against us at the right times.” Overall, the men’s championship was won by Scotland, while France took the ladies’ title. In the men’s bronze medal match all England’s points were provided by Jimmy Mullen and Ashley Chesters (Image © Leaderboard Photography). They won their foursomes by one hole and Mullen went on to win his singles 4/2, while Chesters took his point by the margin of 2/1. But the other England players were fighting hard. Team captain Terry Casey paid tribute to his battling side, remarking: “We put up a great performance and I’m very proud of the lads. “After halving the foursomes the Swedes came on strongly in the singles, but we once again played excellent golf and gave ourselves a great chance. “Ben Taylor played very well against (world number three) Marcus Kinhult and was in a strong position and still ahead with two holes to go. However, despite solid play from Ben and twice being agonisingly close to birdies himself on both these holes, he had to watch as Kinhult converted both times, from off the green on the last.” He added: “We leave in fourth place with our heads held high and England Golf winning many friends from an outstanding effort. The guys were just outstanding in every respect.” In the women’s bronze medal match, England’s points were provided by Hayley Davis and Charlotte Thomas, who had a comfortable 5/4 foursomes win; and by Bronte Law who was on similar form, winning her singles 5/3. Elaine Ratcliffe said: “The standard of play in the foursomes was stunning with both pairings being under par. Hayley and Charlotte won convincingly, not giving their opponents any opportunity to be in the game. The other foursome played amazing golf but were defeated by a birdie on the 19th hole. We were delighted with the standard of golf. “In the afternoon the Spanish girls played some amazing golf and quickly took good leads in four of the five matches. But the performance of the afternoon was from Bronte who birdied five out of the last seven holes to win 5/3, with some of the best golf of the week played.” She also had praise for 17-year-old Alice Hewson who was playing her first women’s European championship and who was second, individually, in qualifying. Elsewhere, England boys beat Scotland 3-2 to finish fifth in the top flight of their championship. This was the highest position they could achieve after losing their first round match. Their points were accumulated in the singles with Bradley Moore winning 4/3 and Matty Lamb and Harry Hall both winning 1 up. England’s girls lost 4½-½ to Sweden, finishing second in Flight B and 10th overall in their championship. The teams: Men, playing at Halmstad Golf Club, Sweden: Ashley Chesters (Hawkstone Park), Nick Marsh (Huddersfield), Jimmy Mullen (Royal North Devon), Ben Taylor (Walton Heath), Ashton Turner (Kenwick Park) and Sean Towndrow (Southport & Ainsdale). Women, playing at Helsingor Golf Club, Denmark: Gemma Clews (Delamere Forest), Hayley Davis (Ferndown), Alice Hewson (Berkhamsted), Bronte Law (Bramhall), Meghan MacLaren (Wellingborough) and Charlotte Thomas of Singapore.

The filmmakers behind La Barracuda share their secrets to filming and recording live music in their OCFF-winning narrative feature.All images via La Barracuda.There’s an undeniable power to films that find creative ways to feature music as an integral part of a film’s narrative. One recent example is La Barracuda, a “slow-burn Texas thriller brimming with tension and a lot of music,” which screened at the Oak Cliff Film Festival, fresh off of its lauded premiere at SXSW a few months earlier.Filmmakers Jason Cortlund and Julia Halperin (who are pictured below receiving the narrative feature award and prize package at the OCFF) had to find creative ways to make a musical world come to life within a film that is deeply rooted in the rich country and folk music scene in Austin, Texas.It was important to us that the performances and music culture be woven into the story in natural and subtle ways because we trust our audience to know better — and music’s really the key to understanding the story.’ Within a limited indie budget, we were tasked with finding a way to record ‘live’ music to create scenes and atmosphere that looked, felt, and most importantly, sounded true to form.If you’re looking to tug your audience’s heart strings by using “live” music on a project of your own, you may want to check out these filmmakers’ tips before recording.You Don’t Have to Fake It to Make ItWhen we started casting, we were committed to finding someone who could act, sing, and play guitar for the lead role of Sinaloa. But there were lots of people along the way pushing us to consider casting a bigger name actress and just faking the guitar playing scenes with inserts of a hand double. While that would have potentially made the film much easier to finance, it would strip out the heart of what we were going after.One of the most endearing aspects of a film like La Barracuda is the authenticity of its characters and their relationships with the music in the film. Lead actress Sophie Reed‘s character (Sinaloa) actually performed her songs herself — which can both be helpful and problematic.Know Your RightsWe knew that negotiating song licenses can be tricky and expensive, so we brought in a music supervisor during development. History is littered with films that can’t be distributed because of music rights issues. We had to be careful and not get our hearts set on any song in particular until we knew we could afford the license. We also learned that the public domain can be tricky — while traditional lyrics might be free to use, a specific musical arrangement may require its own license.Using music in films, even original compositions, can get tricky very quickly in terms of licensing. It’s important, as in the case of La Barracuda, to do your research and work with a music supervisor from the very beginning — lest you film scenes with live music that you can’t actually use in your final cut.Camera and Sound Departments Need to Work TogetherThe camera can be a bully. Because the frame gets so much attention in terms of lighting and mise en scene, the sound department can become a whipping boy — forced to always make compromises that must then be reconciled in post. Not only does this just forestall dealing with a problem, it also makes for a bummer crew dynamic. As directors, we consciously try to treat sound and camera (and all departments) with equal respect.As any sound mixer will tell you, this certainly rings true on all sets. Cinematography seems to always be the head honcho; however, for a film whose soul is the music, it takes a special relationship between sound and camera departments — expertly demonstrated by La Barracuda‘s director of photography (Jonathan Nastasi) and sound mixer (Paul Toohey). Their collaboration found a way to balance the two elements masterfully.Use the Board In addition to multi-track field recordings of live music performances (often with lavs inside every instrument, and on every singer, and a double boom), when we were in venues like The Saxon Pub or The Old Coupland Dancehall, we made use of their in-house mixing boards as well. We had brought in live-event sound mixers to capture secondary recordings from the board feed via the house mics — which gave us many more options in post (as well as clean recordings for a potential soundtrack release).This is actually a pretty clever workaround as a way to record “live” music authentically while making opportunistic use of the environment. While not every scene will be in a bar or concert venue, that doesn’t mean board mixing is out of the question. Having a board on set can often be a great tool for balancing everything from music to recording dialogue.Have Faith — Music Will Add LayersWhile the musical elements definitely added layers of cost and complexity to the production, they’re also the soul of the film. We shot our first live song on day three, and we could see the lights go on with all our crew — someone literally said “Oh! THIS is the film we’re making.” It instantly made everyone so happy, and it drew us together for the rest of the show. Overhearing our key grip (a burly, tattooed dude who goes by “Animal”) humming a sweet Mastersons tune as he loaded the truck that night gave us all the reassurance we needed — the effort would pay dividends in screen pleasure.At the end of the day, the choice to use music in the film depends on how much it can add to the story and overall production. Not every project needs “live” music scenes (as they can be quite tricky). However, in the case of La Barracuda, it proves that going the extra mile to record authentic music performances can create something unique that audiences (and the crew) can feel.Samuel Goldwyn Films picked up La Barracuda, it will see a theatrical release in the U.S. this fall. Check out the Facebook and Twitter pages for updates on upcoming screening dates and locations.

Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores: We’re looking for some kind of styleby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveWatford boss Quique Sanchez Flores admits their performance was not good enough in their 2-0 defeat at Wolves.Matt Doherty’s opener was added to by Daryl Janmaat’s own goal after the break, which saw Wolves pick up three points and rise up the table. The Hornets head coach said: “We knew today would be a different match [to the defeat at Manchester City] and it would be tough. It’s not enough, it’s clear the performance should be better.“Now we are looking for some kind of style, some way we’re going to play, but at the moment we’re not playing in that way. We concede very easy goals and these destroy all the plans. We are playing [catch-up] behind the score so it’s difficult for the players right now.”Asked what it would take to turn the corner, Sanchez Flores responded: “Winning. We need to win. We need to train hard, we need to improve, we’re stronger on the training ground every single day but in the matches we still have problems, we have insecurities, we have situations we can’t solve, easy mistakes giving opportunities to the opponent.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
