Why this inspirational adventurer is roughing it in Donegal

first_imgA Dublin man who turned his life around through hiking is currently touring some of the most beautiful locations of Donegal.Derek Cullen is 1,800km into his walk around Ireland and a million miles from a life that was once dominated by loss, alcohol and depression.Derek has walked almost the entire coast of Ireland on his soul-searching mission. He cooks on a small stove and often relies on the kindness of farmers for a place to pitch his tent.  His north-west adventures have taken him to Bundoran, Rossnowlagh, Glenties, the Bluestack Mountains and Glenveagh before visiting family in Creeslough/Ards. Derek has close ties to Donegal as his grandmother Sarah Gallagher is from Creeslough and she was the sister of the famous singer, Bridie Gallagher.The reason for the trip is not for charity, protest or cause, but because he simply loves walking outdoors.In 2014 the Dubliner was tired of his self-destructive life and struggling after the death of his parents. But at his lowest moment of physical and mental exhaustion, he realized that something had to give. He said: “It was my own fault and this was hard to admit. But I had no success with being self destructive, my drinking habit was literally exhausting and I knew it was time to try something different. Looking back, that was the moment I decided to live for my parents instead of trying to live without them, and to chase down the life I wanted rather than eking my way through a life that was falling apart.”Derek cycled thousands of miles across Africa, hiked the East Coast Trail in Newfoundland, and hiked another 4,500km from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail.In July 2019 he decided to walk around Ireland, all the while editing daily videos of the trip and sharing his discoveries and life lessons with followers on Facebook. Three Irish companies (BDifferent Marketing, Elk Recruitment and the Hiiker App) have jumped on board to help cover some of the day-to-day expenses.But Derek no longer takes these adventures with any grand achievement or purpose in mind. He believes that spending so much time outdoors has enabled him to manage his problems and anxieties so effectively. He also gave up alcohol three years ago and attributes his newfound “success” as an adventurer to a conscious effort to embrace his life with positivity and perseverance. “I’m not out here trying to fix my problems anymore. I just like to explore on foot, to watch the land and seasons change, while enjoying the health benefits that come with getting outdoors. Spending so much time outdoors seems to have re-wired my brain and taken me down a much more exciting road in the process.”You can follow the walk around Ireland Facebook (Derek Cullen Outdoors) or any other social media platform. Why this inspirational adventurer is roughing it in Donegal was last modified: September 26th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)last_img read more

Green Builder Coalition Honors Innovators in Four Categories

first_imgWe’ve mentioned in previous posts the Canada-based Now House Project, which specializes in retrofitting older homes into net-zero energy dwellings and recently was among 12 winning entries in the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s EQuilibrium Sustainable Housing Demonstration Initiative, which is designed to generate interest in eco-friendly design among builders, developers, and the public.Now House is back in the news for winning another award, this one from the Net-Zero Energy Home Coalition, a group of homebuilders and developers in Canada that was founded in 2004 to promote energy-efficient construction and retrofits.At a ceremony held June 8 in Montreal, the NZEH Coalition presented its inaugural Net-Zero Energy Home Awards in four categories, including the “closest to net-zero energy” custom retrofitter of the year award, which went to Now House.In the second category, honoring the “custom homebuilder of the year,” the award went to Edmonton-based Habitat Studio and Workshop, which says it avoids stock blueprints in favor of unique designs and markets its construction standards as being well into green, particularly for wall, basement, and attic insulation.EcoCité Developments took the coalition’s “production homebuilder of the year award” for an in-fill project called Abondance le Soleil, a triplex in downtown Montreal that also won praise from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation for its “wide range of energy-efficient techniques and technologies,” including an 84-panel PV system.The award in the fourth category, the NZEH “champion of the year,” went to Derek Satnick, co-founder of Mindscape Innovations Group, a green-building consultancy and home-technology specialist based in Kitchener, Ontario.last_img read more

Dalit Professor issued notice for comment on Hindu deity

first_imgA Dalit Assistant Professor in Allahabad University on Saturday said he feared he could be lynched by a mob after an old video showing him making controversial remarks about a Hindu deity was widely circulated on campus.The central university’s administration has served Vikram Harijan, an Assistant Professor in the Medieval and Ancient History department, a show-cause notice for his remarks following a complaint by a delegation of students who claimed they had been offended by Mr. Harijan’s remarks. Mr. Harijan found himself in trouble after a research scholar, Ranjeet Saroj, on August 20 uploaded on YouTube a video showing the faculty member making controversial comments on a Hindu deity. Following the circulation of the video, a delegation of students led by Ashwani Kumar Maurya, joint secretary of the ABVP (Kashi Pranth) wrote to the university’s vice-chancellor on August 27 demanding action against Mr. Harijan. They contended that Mr. Harijan’s “anti-dharma” utterances had “hurt religious sentiments” of the public. Mr. Maurya also lodged a police complaint against the faculty member at the Colonelganj police station.Asserting that he had expressed regret for his comments, if they had hurt anyone’s sentiments, Mr. Harijan told The Hindu, that the video being circulated was, however, at least two years old. The video, which shows the faculty member narrating how as a sixth-standard student he had insulted a Hindu deity but faced no backlash from the deity to push his argument against religion and fears related to it, had been shot at a private event at a hostel in Prayagraj on April 14, 2017, on the birth anniversary of Bhimrao Ambedkar. “My purpose was to say that our children should move forward on the basis of education, hard work and rationality, not to rely on destiny or fear of god,” he explained. “Faith is the path to superstition,” he added. Mr. Harijan said he had received several threats and casteist slurs over the phone, after the video surfaced last week, and expressed his apprehension of becoming a victim of “mob lynching”. He said he had informed the administration about his fears and had sought protection. “I messaged the Proctor saying that I could be mob lynched, by Hindu fanatics,” he said. Proctor R.S. Dubey said Mr. Harijan had been issued a show-cause notice and further action would be taken after his reply. On the security threat perceived by the Assistant Professor, Mr. Dubey said: “If anyone has a security problem, they should approach the police. I am a teacher, what point is it telling me.”Mr. Harijan contended that the video had been uploaded by Mr. Saroj due to personal animosity against him and caste prejudice. “He did this to show me my aukaat (position in society),” asserted Mr. Harijan, referring to his Jatav caste.Mr. Saroj is also a Dalit but belongs to the Pasi sub-caste, and Mr. Harijan alleged Mr. Saroj considers his caste superior to Jatavs. Mr. Saroj refuted Mr. Harijan’s allegation and said he had uploaded the video as he could no longer tolerate the “repeated” insults to Hinduism by Mr. Harijan. “Does the constitution give you the right for such things? We should respect all religions,” said Mr. Saroj, who is also an activist of the Akhil Bharatiya Ambedkar Mahasabha.last_img read more

Reed scored one touch down in each half to lead her team to a 6-2 win at BCU International Stadium.QSST and NSWCHS were worthy of their places in the final, being seeded 1 and 2 respectively in the tournament. Leading into the game, both teams had set the benchmark in attack and defence, with QSST only letting through 8 touchdowns in the carnival and NSWCHS only letting through 10.NSWCHS started the game off strong, with Melissa Peters scoring in her first set of six.QSST retaliated and were on the scorecard within the next set of six, scoring through Reed.The opening exchanges were intense, with plenty of ground being made by both teams. However, there was a lot of dropped ball early and QSST gave away several penalties, giving NSWCHS a great opportunity.Despite having several sets of six close to their line in the early stages of the game, NSWCHS were unable to capitalise and QSST pounced.QSST’s Alika Bedford put her team in front for the first time in the 13th minute, scoring in the corner to give the Queensland girls a 2-1 lead.Kirsty Quince scored for QSST 3 minutes later, on the back of a penalty from the NSW team.

Betty Mareko scored 3 minutes later, blowing the score out to 5-2.After a Latisha Gary intercept in the 5th minute of the second half, NSWCHS’ Eliza Naseby was sin binned after an attempt to chase her down.Although NSWCHS had many opportunities in the second half, they were unable to convert these opportunities into points, despite back to back sets of six and ample time close to their line.QSST’s Latisha Gary intercepted the ball in the closing minutes of the game, to put the game beyond doubt for the Queensland girls, with QSST winning by 4 touchdowns.  Kirsty Quince was named player of the match, and Alicia Quirk was named 18’s Girls player of the championships.last_img read more
