Prior to this, all three finished a FETAC Level 5 course in Design at the Mulgrave Street campus.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up All three agree that their two years in LCFE was a very enjoyable and memorable time. Through their studies at LCFE the women have now acquired professional and practical skills in fashion and craft, business, alterations, tailoring and knitwear, while at the same time building lifelong friendships and memories.Ann Barnes, who is presently researching the feasibility of setting up a mini business in alterations, commented: “I was made redundant and had difficulty finding work. As I always enjoyed sewing, I decided to re-train and learn new skills.”Elizabeth Farrell also told the Limerick Post she found the course “very interesting, challenging and rewarding”. While Karina Graham confessed she was only planning to take part in the morning’s only programme, but instead opted to complete the full time course instead.Head of the Fashion Department in LCFE, Miia Satama, explained that the aim of the two-year full-time programme is to provide learners with a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of the modern fashion trade.“There is a strong focus throughout the programme on applying knowledge and skills practically to produce real results. A fashion portfolio which reflects the learner’s ability to deliver creative and original responses is prepared in first year,” said Ms Satama.“It is exciting to see how learning traditional skills such as tailoring has become popular again, we are happy to share the learning experience with learners from all walks of life,” she concluded.LCFE is currently taking applications for all its courses for the academic year 2014/2015.

by: David KarlA little over a month has passed since we rang in the new year and set personal goals to make 2015 the best year yet. So, how are your resolutions going? Good? Bad? Did you even make any? While it’s true that the new year invites new beginnings (and new resolutions), the reality is, you can make a resolution any time of the year. And, they don’t have to be run-of-the-mill resolutions like getting in shape, saving more money, etc., which—let’s face it—are all-too-easy to not accomplish.Consider making some less typical resolutions for 2015 that affect your professional life. Have you ever thought of how you can apply your resolutions to your financial institution? Probably not. But, just like we set measureable performance-based goals, you could make professional resolutions that—while they may not be completely measureable—will positively impact your financial institution.To get you started, here are three vendor-related resolutions you could fulfill this year to ensure you have brought more value to your institution and your customers.1.

How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies A native of Minnesota, where he also played football and hockey in high school, Busch was primarily a first baseman at North Carolina but he also played left field and second base (in the Cape Cod League). The Dodgers plan to “challenge” him to play second base at the professional level.“He’s basically done it in some practice settings. We’ve seen it in the Cape a little bit,” Gasparino said. “We think the kid has the physical skills and the makeup to try it and we’ll move off if needed. We know he can play first. We know he can play left. But we wanted to think in more of a positive mindset and challenge him.”Busch said it was a dream come true just to get drafted and he’ll take that challenge gladly.“I think offensively is the biggest contribution I’ll make,” he said. “Wherever they put me on the field is where I’m going to work hard.”Related Articles The Dodgers powered up with their first two picks in this year’s draft, taking one of the NCAA’s leading home run hitters with their first-round pick and another power-hitting infielder with their second pick.Between them – Tulane third baseman Kody Hoese and North Carolina infielder Michael Busch – hit 39 home runs this season.“We liked that demographic and it just worked out in our favor in this draft. Extremely happy to get both of those college bats,” director of amateur scouting Billy Gasparino said. “We always like to search for those guys first and were happy to get them to come in those first two picks.”Hoese was the Dodgers’ first choice, 25th overall. After hitting only five home runs in his freshman and sophomore seasons at Tulane (the alma mater of Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman), Hoese hit 23 home runs in 58 games as a junior this year. That led the NCAA in mid-May and was tied for fourth-highest at the end of the regular season 2019. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season “That’s a great question. We asked that question ourselves,” Gasparino said of what powered the big jump. “I think it was really a combination of elements – getting a little stronger, getting a little more experience, improving his swing a little bit and really just understanding how to create leverage. All of those things added up to a monster year – 23 home runs, 20 doubles and just really high-end power output.”Hoese finished the season with a .391 batting average, 61 RBIs and a 1.265 OPS. A native of Griffith, Ind., Hoese was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the 35th round of last year’s draft but did not sign. His defense at third base is “a real strength,” Gasparino said.“His defense is plus,” Gasparino said. “We like two-way type players. I think he can play other positions. He’s a good athlete. He can run. So not only do we get power with Hoese, I think we can get plus-defense as well.”The Dodgers also had the 31st pick overall as compensation for not signing their first-round pick a year ago, right-hander J.T. Ginn who went 8-4 with a 3.36 ERA as a freshman at Mississippi State.They used the pick on more offense in Busch, who hit .290 with 16 home runs and 57 RBIs for the Tar Heels. Busch also hit .322 in the wood-bat Cape Cod League last summer and was named to the All-Cape Cod League. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco With their final pick of the first day, (78th overall, a compensatory pick for Yasmani Grandal signing with the Milwaukee Brewers), the Dodgers selected Jimmy Lewis, a right-handed pitcher from Lake Travis High in Austin, Texas.“He developed into one of our favorite right-handed high school pitchers,” Gasparino said. “He’s 6-6, 200 pounds, lean and lanky. We feel he took a huge jump in his coordination and the ability to repeat his delivery. He has two plus-pitches – 91-95 (mph fastball), locates down in the zone, the curveball is plus. We think he can really spin it, command it and execute it well.”Lewis has committed to LSU but Gasparino said he was optimistic “we can make him a Dodger.”Lewis went 9-0 with a 0.52 ERA while striking out 83 and walking 15 in 53-1/3 innings this season. He pitched a no-hitter against Hays High in late April, striking out nine.

Anthony Davis’ representatives have informed the Pelicans that he would sign long-term with the Lakers, Knicks, Bucks and Clippers if he is traded, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) February 4, 2019TRADE RUMORS: Lakers, Pelicans moving closer to Davis dealIt’s worth noting the absence of the Celtics from that list. The “Rose Rule” prevents Boston from making a trade for Davis with Kyrie Irving on the roster until July 1 when Irving can become a free agent. (More details on why Boston is limited before the trade deadline can be found here.)Charania and Wojnarowski claimed the list came from Davis’ agent, Rich Paul, who initially leaked the information that Davis requested a trade. According to Wojnarowski, this list “appears to be an effort [by Paul] to facilitate a deal prior to Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET deadline, and spare a prolonged stay into the offseason for Davis with the franchise.”But are any of those teams a legit contender to land Davis by the trade deadline? Let’s examine each team’s chances at facilitating a trade.4. Milwaukee BucksPairing AD with Giannis Antetokounmpo would be incredible to see, but it seems highly unlikely Milwaukee can pull this off. Thon Maker, Khris Middleton, Tony Snell and some draft picks would be about the best Milwaukee can do, and that doesn’t seem like enough for New Orleans.And before Bucks fans start photoshopping Davis in a team jersey, it appears the team isn’t even really interested in making a deal for the star forward.The Milwaukee Bucks are one of the teams on Davis’ new extended list, league sources tell ESPN. Milwaukee hasn’t inquired about a Davis trade, sources say, and its roster composition does make the pathway to a trade extremely difficult.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) February 4, 2019While it doesn’t seem like a trade would work, it is interesting that Milwaukee made the final cut. Davis’ list involves two big-market teams (Los Angeles, New York) and then Milwaukee. Management should be proud of the fact that Davis wants to play there, but it just can’t offer enough to make a deal work.3. New York KnicksNew Orleans rejected the Knicks on a Porzingis offer recently, and likely don’t have the assets to gain the Pelicans’ interest unless they defy the odds on a 12 percent chance in the draft lottery to get the No. 1 overall pick in the June draft.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) February 4, 2019As Woj points out, the Knicks are basically in the same boat as the Bucks — they just don’t have enough to make a worthy deal happen with Kristaps Porzingis gone. New York has to wait until the draft lottery before it has something worth consideration.But if Woj’s reporting is right and Paul wants a trade completed before the deadline, then waiting until the draft lottery is just entirely too late.2. Los Angeles ClippersThe Clippers do have some intriguing assets, but the question then becomes: is it worth it? You’d be giving up a lot of depth in order to gain one star, with the hope of potentially bringing in Kawhi Leonard this summer.According to Wojnarowski, the Clippers “are another team holding onto cap space and assets for summer free agency,” and added, “so far, Clippers haven’t made an offer on Davis.” But now that the Clippers know Davis is interested, they might be ready to engage. Yahoo reporter Chris Haynes recently said the Clippers were “monitoring the Anthony Davis situation.”1. Los Angeles LakersDavis’ list may as well have been “The Lakers and three other teams that can’t make a deal.” The Lakers are really the only team that makes sense. They have the most assets, and they are one of the few franchises that can pull this off. And Paul’s plan just might have worked, as Woj says talks between the Pelicans and Lakers have increased.Lakers president Magic Johnson and Pelicans GM Dell Demps have had multiple conversations today, league sources tell ESPN. There’s no sense how much progress sides have made progress toward a possible trade, but the Lakers have absolutely gotten more serious in the discussions. https://t.co/R84Aetv9n3— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) February 4, 2019It probably doesn’t hurt that the Lakers are willing to give up anything to acquire Davis. And we mean anything.Landed in Indy; update on Lakers-Pelicans talks. Magic Johnson, Dell Demps talked twice today, per source. Lakers willing to give Pelicans cap relief for Anthony Davis by taking Solomon Hill for Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Ingram, Rondo, Lance Stephenson, Beasley, 2 1st round picks.— Brad Turner (@BA_Turner) February 4, 2019While Bucks, Knicks and Clippers fans might be excitied by the idea of a trade list, the Lakers are really the winner here. No deal is complete yet, obviously, but it would be a surprise to see something happen by Thursday’s deadline. The NBA trade deadline is on Thursday, Feb. 7, which means everyone is on Anthony Davis watch over the next few days.We were hit with a number of reports from The Athletic’s Shams Charania and ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Monday discussing Davis, but this is the key takeaway:
