New Shopping Center Coming to Newman Springs Road

first_imgBy John BurtonSHREWSBURY – Development of a new shopping center on the former site of Memory Lanes by the firm behind The Grove promises to please Two River shoppers within a month.“That’s what I always try to do,” with these projects, said Metrovation/Terranomics Chris Cole. “Create an interesting mix of tenants for the customer.”Speaking of the 89 Newman Springs Road location, Metrovation’s retail and commercial site is in the final stages of construction and Cole said his firm is looking to fill the relatively small site with the type of businesses that would appeal to the Two-River-area shopper. The site is expected to have three to four businesses, with one tenant already signed, and construction estimated to be finished within the month, according to Cole.Metrovation/Terranomics is a Seattle, Washington-based firm behind The Grove and Grove West shopping centers on Broad Street/Highway 35, in Shrewsbury, and the Brook 35 and West shopping centers, Sea Girt, and is a partner in the large-scale residential and commercial project West Side Lofts, completing construction on the west side of Red Bank.The approximately 48,825 square-foot lot, on the southern side of Newman Springs Road/County Road 520, a short distance from the Grove and Grove West and about a mile from downtown Red Bank, had been the home to Memory Lane Bowling until it was destroyed by fire in June 2009 with Metrovation purchasing the site in 2013.Cole regularly drives along Newman Springs Road and when the property became available he “thought it was a good location for another retail spot.”Platypus, a home furnishings store, has closed its Grove shop and will relocate to 89 Newman Springs Road. “They wanted to stay in this market,” Cole said, believing the move is “a logical place for them.”The development has been approved and can accommodate up to a 1,500 square-foot restaurant, and Metrovation is continuing to secure an appropriate eatery for the site. In addition, the firm is in negotiations with a mix of national, regional and independent retailers about taking the additional available spaces.“We’re trying to figure what the right mix of it is,” for the shopping center, he said.And that’s the strategy for Metrovation, he explained: “A certain synergy between the tenants,” and businesses that would appeal to area shoppers. “I think the Grove has a little bit for everyone,” Cole said, “and I think this one will as well.”He expected the shopping center will be fully leased by the end of spring.last_img read more

They will then be checked and delivered to Dublin for distribution by volunteers with the Homeless Mobile Run. “We had an amazing response, and so many offers to help and so many businesses going to do the collections,” Linda told DW.“I’m also in contact with the North West Simon Community. There are thirty people who are homeless in Donegal so we are going to get bags sent to them too.”The bags should be suited to adults, Linda said, as she is in contact with some local schools to prepare separate gifts for children.If you would like to donate a bag to the charity project, here are some suggestions for what to pack:Please ensure bags are in good condition, no holes, straps in good condition and zips working.Toiletries – toothbrush and paste, hand sanitizer, hand creams, roll-on deodorant, large bandaids, harsh weather creams, lip balm, mini sudocrem ..

Ace the Art of Muzzle Flashes in Final Cut Pro X

first_imgMake your action scenes more epic with explosive muzzle flashes in Final Cut Pro X. Learn the technique with FREE stock footage and music from Shutterstock and PremiumBeat.When it comes to indie VFX work, there are few things as fun as creating realistic muzzle flashes in Final Cut Pro. While there are certainly many different ways to create the effect, the following video tutorial demonstrates one of the easiest ways to create Hollywood-quality muzzle flashes using only a few simple video elements.But don’t just watch the clip… fire up Final Cut Pro X and create some muzzle-flash mayhem! We’ve teamed up with Shutterstock to give you FREE assets so you can follow along.You can download the free footage, music, and assets from the Final Cut Pro X page here on PremiumBeat.Download Free Muzzle Flash Assets Creating a Muzzle Flash in Final Cut ProCreating muzzle flashes in Final Cut Pro couldn’t be easier. Just follow the steps below.Step 1: Place Your Fire Element Into Your VideoThe first thing to do is place your fire elements into your timeline. You can do this by dragging and dropping the clips from the media browser into your timeline (or hitting the ‘Q’ key with the files selected).Step 2: Reduce to One FrameBy default, the fire element will be longer than a single frame — but if you’re wanting to create a realistic muzzle flash, that doesn’t really make a lot of sense. To cut your footage, select the blade tool by hitting the B key on your keyboard and cutting up your clips into a single “flash” frame.Step 3: Set the Blending ModeYour muzzle flash element will have a black background. For obvious reasons, this won’t work for your video project. With your muzzle flash selected, navigate to the Inspector in the top right part of your Final Cut Pro window. Click the Video button, and select Linear Dodge from the Blending Mode menu located under the Compositing section.Step 4: Scale the ElementYour muzzle flash will likely be too big for your frame. To alter the element, use the Transform tool to scale and position the muzzle flash as needed.Step 5: Add Ambient FlashesAt this point, your video may look cool — but you need to add some ambient light elements into your scene to really push it over the top. While you could use a simple solid shape layer, the best thing to do is use an organic video element. For our example, we’ll use a clip of a lightning storm.Drop your lightning footage into the scene and scale it up using the Scaling and Position features in the Inspector. Set your blending mode to Linear Dodge. Now delete the clip so it only pops up over each flash frame. Next, it’s time to color the element orange.In FCPX, there’s a simple color correction effect called Sepia. This effect quickly applies an orange stylization to your clip.Step 6: Duplicate Your VideoNow we want to colorize our video at the exact frame where the muzzle flash happens. To do this, you need to duplicate the bottom footage layer. This is accomplished by dragging the bottom video layer while pressing and holding the option key.Step 7: Colorize the VideoTo colorize the video, use the Color Correction effect and apply some slight orange color grading. After you do this, cut the video down to the frames in which the muzzle flashes are flashing.See below for the epic results.What is your favorite method for creating muzzle flashes in FCPX? Share in the comments below.last_img read more

The achievement may have persuaded Ferrari bosses to stick with the Brazilian for next season.Also in the championship hunt along with Alonso and Vettel are Raikkonen (157 points), who finished sixth to stay within 33 points of the leader, and Lewis Hamilton (152), whose fifth place kept him in contention a further five points back.The F1 trail hits South Korea next week, before arriving in India, Abu Dhabi, the United States and finishing in Brazil November 25.Results:1.

10 months agoUEFA chief warns Man City risk ‘heaviest punishment’ and Champions League ban

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say UEFA chief warns Man City risk ‘heaviest punishment’ and Champions League banby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester City have been warned they risk a Champions League ban by a UEFA official.UEFA’S chief financial investigator has confirmed that City could indeed be banned from the Champions League if they are found guilty of a further breach of Financial Fair Play regulations.Yves Leterme, the head of Uefa’s independent Club Financial Control Body (CFCB), has told a Belgian publication that City may now face “the heaviest punishment”.The Daily Mail says it is claimed the Abu Dhabi United Group, the holding company which owns City, directly paid £59.5m of Etihad’s annual sponsorship, with only £8m coming from the airline.UEFA and the Premier League are investigating the claims and in an interview with Sport and Strategy Leterme has said: “If it is true what has been written, there might be a serious problem. This can lead to the heaviest punishment: exclusion from the Uefa competitions.”If the information is correct, this possibly goes against truthful reporting. The financial fair play rules are based on a system of declaration, three months after the clubs have closed their accounts, they have to deposit their figures. Then we do random checks on the truthfulness of those figures. The accounts are examined and approved internally and externally.” last_img read more
