tri-mountain polo ‘Shoot me’ if I become a dictator

MANILA, Jan 22 (Reuters) Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday instructed the army and police to shoot him if he became a dictator and stayed on beyond his term, a scenario his foes are warning against, amid moves by his loyalists to change the constitution.

The firebrand leader sought to dispel speculation he had ordered loyalists in Congress to change the constitution to introduce a federal system that would let him stay in power beyond 2022, when his single term ends.

“If I overstay and wanted to become a dictator, shoot me, I am not joking,” Duterte told soldiers during an army base visit, adding that security forces should not allow anybody to mess with the constitution.

“It is your job to protect the constitution and to protect the people. Remember, it is your solemn duty.”

Duterte has advocated federalism to tackle inequality, empower provinces and recognise the country’s diverse makeup.

Last week, his lower house allies voted to convene a constituent assembly to revise the charter by May this year, scrapping mid term elections next year and extending the terms of all elected officials.

Constitutional reform has been a divisive issue, with critics accusing lawmakers of trying to prolong their stay in office, or of seeking a way for the hugely popular Duterte to cling to power beyond the end of his term.

Duterte’s spokesman, Harry Roque, has repeatedly said the president has no desire to stay longer than his term and, if anything, would prefer to retire earlier. (Reporting by Manuel Mogato; Editing by Martin Petty and Clarence Fernandez)

polo shirts on sale for men ‘Reluctant superstar’ Roberto Nelson strikes balance on court

CORVALLIS Roberto Nelson weaved his way through Gill Coliseum Thursday night, across the court and down a stairwell, taking photos with students, accepting congratulations from fans and pressing flesh with referees on their way out of the building.

“Fifteen hundred points,” one of the refs said. “Nice going.”

It had been another good night for Nelson 24 points, eight rebounds and the game winning basket on a corkscrew move to the hoop with 24.9 seconds left in overtime that he was bound and determined to get off through a forest of Southern Cal defenders.

It was enough to propel the Beavers to a 76 75 victory after the Trojans’ Pe’Shon Howard missed the back end of a two shot opportunity at the free throw line with .9 of a second left in the extra session.

Ironic, because it was Howard’s first miss after seven straight makes at the line on a night when USC was 19 for 21, Oregon State 20 for 35 at the stripe.

The Beavers had 16 turnovers eight in the final seven minutes of regulation and the overtime. They made only 4 of 12 3 point attempts and shot a mediocre .419, well below their .473 season average. They led for only four minutes, 25 seconds of regulation play.

Yet they came away with victory over an SC team (10 11 overall, 1 7 in Pac 12 play) that beat California and lost to Stanford in overtime last week.

It wouldn’t have happened without Nelson, the lifeblood of Oregon State’s program who is the runaway scoring leader in the Pac 12 both overall (22.3) and in conference contests (23.6) despite the constant presence of double teams and “stoppers” guarding him for opponents.

As the official duly noted, Nelson is a member of Oregon State’s exclusive 1,500 point club, which now numbers six. Green into fourth.

The 6 4, 200 pound senior is ahead of such names as Dave Gambee, Mark Radford, Scott Haskin, Brent Barry, Ray Blume, Jared Cunningham and Freddie Boyd on the school career scoring list. Only all time greats Gary Payton, Steve Johnson and Mel Counts are unreachable.

“It’s very humbling for me,” Nelson said as he paused outside OSU’s basketball locker room. “As a competitor, you want to put your name up there with the great players.

“But I always give it to my team. If it wasn’t for the unselfish teammates I have, those guys who push me to this, I wouldn’t be on that list. If that list could say ‘Roberto and team,’ I’d like that.”

Sounds corny, but I think the young man coach Craig Robinson refers to as “almost a reluctant superstar” means it.

He seems to have a genuine affinity for his teammates and a love and respect for Robinson, who landed perhaps the best blue chip recruit of his six years at Oregon State in that first 2009 class.

Nelson was a boyhood phenom and a standout, along with ex OSU teammate Joe Burton, on the Team California group that was ranked No. 1 on the national AAU circuit. Nelson was a focal point in the fine book, “Play Their Hearts Out,” written over the course of an eight year study by Sports Illustrated’s George Dohrmann.

“Love that book, man,
polo store locator 'Reluctant superstar' Roberto Nelson strikes balance on court
” Nelson said. “If I flip through the pages, I can go back to those moments. It was extremely fun. I was a kid going from sixth grade on a team that didn’t play in the big time, in front of a thousand fans, in front of college coaches, to the No. 1 team in the country, playing against the best players, playing for a big organization, getting free shoes. Sports Illustrated documented how he received 2,161 pieces of recruiting mail but not so much as a postcard from Oregon State.

After narrowing his choices to UCLA, Ohio State, Florida and Washington, Nelson picked Oregon State because of “this guy right here, Coach Robinson,” he said with a nod.

“He’s a man of high character,” Nelson said. “I met a lot of really good people in the recruiting process. But the character that (former assistant coach David) Grace and Coach Robinson displayed. They were interested in me for not only basketball but who I was as a person and what I liked to do. Those are the things that go far with a kid. For a coach to care more than about what can he give me for my future, that says a lot about who he is.”

Robinson has served as a father figure and mentor for Nelson, especially so in recent years due to the incarceration of his father, Bruce, at the California Institute for Men in Chino, Calif.

“Roberto is a terrific kid,” Robinson said. “We have a great relationship, which is why he has the freedom he has on my team. He has earned that. To be such a good player and such a quality kid has been a real treat for me as a coach.

“We have a team full of guys like that because of guys like Roberto. He’s talking to the (prospects) on recruiting trips. They want to be with a guy like that. He’s a very warm kid to be so good. Sometimes I need him to get on the guys, and that’s not really his thing. He’s more of a nurturer.”

Nelson’s college basketball experience hasn’t been all wine and roses. He sat out a year and seven games before finally gaining his eligibility in December 2010, the result of academic eligibility stemming from on line classes he took in his school that were California accredited only.

Nelson wasn’t even a starter until his junior year in 2012 13, shooting below 39 percent his first two seasons. Last year, he averaged 17.8 points overall and a Pac 12 best 19.1 in conference games, becoming the first Beaver to do so since Payton in 1989 90.

This season, Nelson has burst out with the kind of consistent brilliance that makes him the early leader to be voted the Pac 12 player of the year. He has scored 20 plus points in six straight games and 12 times overall, and has scored at least 16 points in every game except the one from which he was booted in the first half for a flagrant foul.

Nelson has grown in nearly every way since he set foot on the OSU campus in 2009.

“Before I came here, I wasn’t a student,” he said. “I wasn’t somebody who went to class, who cared about getting good grades. Meeting a man like Coach Rob, who took himself from somewhere to being extremely successful through school and with his intelligence it has opened my eyes.

“We talk about stuff all the time. It’s stuff maybe (coaches and players from) other programs don’t talk about. We talk about life. About how much money it’s going to take to raise a family. Stuff you don’t get to talk about with a lot of people. It’s great to have a coach like that, who prepares you for not only basketball but for life.”

Intersession Course Offers Revealing Look Into Ugandan Culture Communities

Beds are numerous but space is scarce in the hospital in Masaka, Uganda. Patients suffering from illnesses ranging from malaria to AIDS lie or sit within an arm length of one another. Bed space is limited and some patients are assigned to small, thin mattresses on the floor. Wards, located in areas about the size of four standard hospital rooms, house up to 50 people. Nurses provide only basic medical care. Family members gather closely around their loved ones, cooking their meals and helping them bathe.

This is the state of health care in Uganda and it unlike anything Katherine Juliano had ever experienced before. Juliano is a nursing student at The University of Scranton and one of a small group of students who spent 13 days in Uganda during intersession as part of the University in Africa course.

were warned it was going to be a difficult experience, Juliano says. don think I ever forget it. The interaction was heart wrenching. At first, students witnessed people listless with fever or weary from the strain of chronic illness. Seeing patients in this state was difficult, especially for the six nursing students on the trip for they could offer little assistance. The most the students could do was be present.

Juliano remembers one particularly fragile woman. She tried to catch the woman attention by waving, but she didn respond. Eventually the woman slowly pulled her hand out from under her bed sheet and motioned slightly to say hello. was so weak laying on that bed, Juliano recalls. couldn even smile. My heart just broke. Students were overwhelmed by the response. Patients were extremely appreciative and praised their visitors, smiling and clapping. Many students left wishing they could do more. Students witnessed the grim reality of poverty and suffering and were forced to reconcile it with the life they otherwise know.

was such an in your face reality check, explains Liz Piliero a philosophy major. think, I have a duty to stay there for them, smile for them, and give them whatever I could give instead of this hopelessness. Each year he refines the trip and course work. He adds new readings to offer perspective about the people of Uganda, and he develops new ways to foster better dialogue in the nightly discussion groups. the most transformative teaching I do and the teaching comes not from me talking, but rather simply showing, Pinches says. can picture it until they there. Instead it the joy of the Ugandan people even in the midst of much sadness that leaves the most enduring impression.

Beyond the disease and poverty in Uganda is the innate and unshakable spirit of its people. Ugandans face uncertainty in their lives each day, but rather than wilt under the bleak outlook, they find happiness. Rather than focusing on possessions, Ugandans value relationships. They depend on each other. They find joy in what they do have and in the community surrounding them. This was evident to the members of the Christianity course.

The idea of catering to guests is important in Ugandan culture and the Scranton students saw it firsthand. In one stop, students were welcomed to a jubilee celebration for a Catholic sister who had given her life to teaching. They were seated close to the honored nun and embraced by a group of more than 300 partygoers who an hour before were complete strangers.

were so unconditionally loving, so happy, so hospitable, so welcoming, Juliano explains. was totally life changing. Pinches says. if you stay a while you recognize how different their culture is and also how beautiful it is.

they do their dressing changes, they use honey to draw the fluid out of their wound, Lovecchio notes. this country we never use a high sugar content based product because here we feel that draws bacteria. But over there, it works. Lovecchio points this out not to cast judgment quite the opposite in fact. Working without the benefits of modern technology and medicine, Ugandan nurses do more with less, she says. They compensate for a lack of supplies with a strong connection with patients.

In the past, the Christianity course was offered mainly to students in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Special Jesuit Liberal Arts (SJLA) Honors Program. However when Dr. Lovecchio was asked to chaperone the trip, she immediately inquired about including her nursing students. She felt her students could gain invaluable experience. thought it would provide a way to help these students develop their compassion, Lovecchio explains.

The mix of students allowed each group to learn from one another. Nursing students offered medical knowledge, putting what the group saw in context. was really grateful we were able to have that variety of opinion, Juliano says. Nursing students hosted an HIV prevention exercise in one of the towns they visited, while non nursing students helped build a house overlooking the rainforest for a family of Batwa Pygmy people. stood with them and worked, and at the end of the day the family had a new house to live in. All the old shirts, pants, shoes anything she doesn use anymore if it still had monetary value, it had to go.

Piliero has been determined to not let her experience in Uganda go to waste. It not enough to go on a trip and return to the status quo, she feels. There has to be a next step. For her, it selling clothes to raise money for Uganda. money can go such a long way there, Piliero explains. think I have enough clothes to pay for like 10 people education.

She isn the only student affected by the Christianity in Africa course. One student on the trip decided she was going to dedicate her life to service. Another said the experience inspired her to become a better Christian.

Before the trip Juliano raised money through her church to pay for expenses. She donated her leftover money to the people of Uganda, but she too feels the need to give back. always have this drive to do something about it, even if it not at that hospital, Juliano explains.

The Detroit Pistons have reportedly made Avery Bradley available in trade discussions as the trade deadline approaches, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Bradley, who played for the Boston Celtics for seven years before being dealt to Detroit this offseason in exchange for Marcus Morris, will be a free agent after this season. Per Wojnarowski’s report, the Pistons are concerned they might lose Bradley for nothing after a lackluster season. Detroit started the year well but has fallen off a cliff recently, dropping their last eight games,
polo boxer 'made available'
and they are now several games out of the playoff race.

Bradley will likely have many interested suitors in on the trade market. A lock down on ball defender, he is also making 38.1 percent of his 3 pointers this season. That type of two way ability could make him attractive to contenders looking for postseason help around the deadline. Wojnarowski noted Bradley could command a big salary next year, but he might run into a dry free agent market there won’t be many buyers with money to throw around next season, especially for a slightly undersized shooting guard whose on/off defensive numbers have been disappointing given his reputation for a few years now.

Ex Celtics have had a tough 2017 18 season. Bradley hasn’t been a great fit in Detroit, while Jae Crowder and Isaiah Thomas have both struggled significantly with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Even the draft assets Boston flipped haven’t worked out particularly well for their new teams the Brooklyn Nets pick the Cavaliers acquired for Kyrie Irving is currently eighth in the league, and Markelle Fultz’s shot continues to look broken in Philadelphia.

blank polos ‘Mad Men’ fuels style choices for male millennials

From Elvis Presley sequined jumpsuits to Michael Jackson high water pants, from polyester disco shirts open to the navel to Members Only jackets, men fashions have hit some all time lows in the last 50 years.

In the last decade, casual has trumped professional in men fashion trends. Think shorts with a sports jacket (or maybe you shouldn think about that) or skinny jeans or T shirts with edgy sayings or bling on everything.

Over the last two years, men retail clothing sales jumped 4.1 percent to $101.8 billion annually, eclipsing a 2.8 percent rise to $150.1 billion on the female side, according to research firm Euromonitor. By 2017, men fashion sales are predicted to hit about $110 billion annually while women will rise to $156 billion, the Los Angeles Times reports.

And it guys in their 20s and 30s who are transforming men fashions. They like looking good, from clothes to socks and shoes to hair, and are willing to fork over the time and the dollars to make it happen. Names dropped on these testosterone fueled fashionistas include the Henry (high earner, not rich yet) and the Yummy (young, urban male).

Among the styles favored by Henrys and Yummies are:

The modern gentleman who mixes suits with patterns and textures;

The upscale casual guy who goes for high quality, high cost basics;

The lumbersexual yes, a joke on “metrosexual” guys in plaid shirts with well groomed beards.

Avery Acton, a 20 year old student at Chattanooga State Community College, credits Hollywood for the growing interest.

“I think it the glitz and glamour not only in TV shows like Men, but also in movies like Great Gatsby that was remade a couple years ago,” he says. “It helped motivate my generation to take an interest in the way we look.”

But you don have to fork over big bucks to look nice, Acton says. He shops at big department stores, online and at thrift stores. “Second hand stores are like hidden mines full of unique items,” he says.

Still, in Chattanooga, Acton is an anomaly. Most men here, both young and old, are sticking with the tried and true, says Dillard suit specialist Melvin James.

“We just so conservative in Chattanooga that we not willing to step out of the box,” he says. “We carry suits in just four colors gray, black, blue, and an occasional tan. We only carry two button suits. Most guys here don even think three button or double breasted suits are in. They are.

“I just not seeing the trend here. In fact, when I see a well dressed young man walking through the store, I probably ask him where he is from because my first instinct is that he not from here. In fact, I do a double take.”

A double take is exactly what Ethan Love gets from folks when he visits Chattanooga.

Love, 32, a Signal Mountain native who now lives and works in San Francisco, says his taste in fashion has taken on a new look since moving to California in 2007. A medical device sales representative, Love says that, though his job dictates a professional look, it not the reason he takes an interest in the way he dresses inside and outside the office.

“I don think my profession has too much of a correlation with how I dress,” he says. “My clothes for work are much more business related. I am not afraid to get dressed up for going out, but I am typically very casual outside of work.”

A casual look for Love, though, may differ from the typical casual look of local millennials. Slim fitted designer jeans paired with a fitted T shirt and/or a stylish sport shirt, worn with leather gym shoes is his typical casual look. And, by nature of where he lives, he up on trends, he says.

“Living in San Francisco, you see a lot of different styles. I see things that I like and make it my own,” he says. “It easy when you have so many different places to buy clothes.

People my age seem to dress very differently in big cities like San Francisco. I come home (to Chattanooga) and get labeled jokingly as a by my friends.

“I feel that each person has their own style and their own way they want to look. It does, though, seem to be shaped a lot around where you live and what is labeled as appropriate.”

Dillard James says he like to see local men jump on the well dressed trend.

“I would love to see guys put on three piece suits. not just millennials, but middle age guys and grandpas,” he says. “I want everybody in a suit.”

But James, who 54, blames his generation for today casual look.

“My generation set the standard for the ways kids are dressing today. It my generation that quit wearing suits to church,” he says. “We no longer dress up, and if you not going to dress up on Sunday, Monday and the rest of the week doesn have a chance.”

James says he optimistic, though, that local men will up their game when it comes to dressing professional. “We just so relaxed here, but I got hope,” he says.

mens polo hats ‘I am not stepping into Mohnish Behl’s shoes’

Mohnish Behl has been replaced by Sharad Kelkar in Sony Entertainment Television’s romantic soap Kuch Toh Log Kahenge, starting from tonight. We investigate the reasons.

Actor Sharad Kelkar, who has acted in Saat Phere and Bairi Piya, has stepped into the role of Dr Ashutosh after Mohnish Behl quit the daily soap Kuch Toh Log Kahenge on Sony Entertainment Television.

Mohnish Behl quit the show citing health reasons. The actor’s sudden exit from the serial is centred on an accident scene. Sources say there will be no change in the original story to suit Mohnish’s exit and Sharad’s entry.

Sharad Kelkar says he took some time to accept the offer as he had prior commitments. “It seemed like a challenge to me, so then I thought one should go ahead, and I said yes.”

He continues, “I did a two day workshop with other actors in the show. I am stepping into the character’s shoes; I am not stepping into Mohnishji’s shoes. So I am not going to copy him. He was brilliant in the show and has set a high benchmark but I am set for it.”

Mohnish was the face of the show, so won’t it be quite a challenge taking it on?

Sharad has no illusions. “Yes, it’s going to be tough. I have my own style and attitude when it comes to acting. I hope viewers like me in my own new avatar. I will try to fulfil all the requirements and expectations of people.”

About playing an older character, he says, “I am an actor so I have to do any kind of role. I have always played contrasting characters because it’s interesting to play challenging roles. I am excited to be part of this show.”

Did he speak to Mohnish before agreeing to replace him?

“No. They contacted me only after he decided to quit the show. They approached many actors besides me.”

Sharad had seen a few episodes of the show before he signed up,
white polos 'I am not stepping into Mohnish Behl's shoes'
and also the Pakistani episodes. “It’s one of the more uncommon shows on TV, a simple story told in a simple way. I heard this show is better than the Pakistani one.”

There were rumours that Mohnish was not too comfortable doing romantic scenes, but Sharad says Mohnish is such a seasoned actor that he doesn’t think he would have a problem with romantic scenes.

“As for me, I have a romantic image on screen and off. I hope that continues in the show too,” he smiles.

Meanwhile, speculation is rife about what prompted Mohnish Behl to leave the serial. He wasn’t comfortable shooting romantic scenes with his co star when his wife was present on the set, goes one version, while another says he wanted a pay hike.

Mohnish dismisses all the speculation. “People enjoy rumours! I left on account of health reasons (severe lower back spasms and pain). The 20 days a month, 12 hours every day and extensions etc and travelling four hours to and from the location. I just wasn’t getting enough rest. That’s all.

“Sony channel and I have given the same statement, so I wonder who is spreading such stories and who gains from this. Why would my wife have any objection to romantic scenes? I have done them in films. She married an actor and she herself has acted and still acts sometimes, so we both know what acting is. And how can I ask for a pay hike mid contact?” he asks.

polo shirt for women ‘Guys Are Never Considered Sluts’

This spring, belly shirts and slip dresses have become the apparel of choice among stylish teens. We have our heads shaved, noses, eyebrows and other body parts pierced, wear stars on faces, platform shoes and dye our hair bright colors. We also dress in a lot of old clothes from the 1970s. I used to be preppy, wearing jeans, tennis shoes and little tops.

I think it turns off guys the way I look. But I’m not out to impress guys. Maybe I’ll calm down when I want a boyfriend. Some guys think I’m daring.

My friends and I try to be different in a good way though, not a raunchy way. Most girls who dress like sluts want to show off their bodies. But how they dress does not necessarily represent who they are.

My mom tries to pick out clothes for me, but she’s OK with anything. She thinks I should dye my hair two colors. She likes that I’m different. We share clothes too. My dad does not approve of most of my look, like the little shorts and tight clothes. When I go to parties in Pasadena, I buy the clothes I see on people over there and bring the styles over here.

My parents pay for my clothes. They might give me $100. They don’t want me to dress like a gangster, just get some party clothes. My brother is always telling me to dress right, tuck in my shirt, because he knows I’ve had guns pointed at me for the way I look and the people I hang around with.

I don’t think there is anything that would be trampy on guys. But on girls, platform shoes, short shorts,
polo denim jacket 'Guys Are Never Considered Sluts'
mini shirts look trampy. I like girls with tight Levis and a tight shirt. At parties, they look pretty when they wear their little outfits.

17, Sherman Oaks

I prefer a girl who dresses with more class. If I see a girl in a mini outfit, I look twice. But I’m thinking, “She’s probably not that smart.” If I had a girl who showed up for a date like that, I’d tell her she looks great, but I would think she looks ugly.

I asked one girl to change. We were going to my parents house and she was wearing a body suit that was mesh and see though in parts with just a jacket over it. It was something that would have been OK for her to wear out, but it was too revealing for my parents.

When guys wear T shirts that are a little bit too small or really tight tank tops, it’s not slutty. They are just trying to get attention. Unfortunately, there is a double standard: Guys are not considered sluts.

Personally, a guy’s wardrobe is much more complicated because guys have much more peer pressure.

16, Santa Monica

I am influenced by what I see in magazines and on other people and that are comfortable when I wear them, like jeans and tops. I feel I look sexy in jeans and a really cute tight top.

My parents won’t let me wear my bra showing through a tank top or exposed at all. But I’ve worn it that way.

If I’m going to a party and I want to meet a guy, I’m not going to purposely wear revealing clothing. But I won’t go in a turtleneck.

Guys have like three options: shorts, pants and different kinds of shirts. Women’s fashion is way more diverse. A guy in jeans and a tight tank top at the Santa Monica Promenade on Saturday night is just trying to say, “Hey, baby I’m a stud.”RANDI GRAVES

“You’re wearing the wrong shoes” a member of the Dragon Unit production team politely informed me as I squelched through some Northern Irish puddles. Straight ahead in a puddle of his own stood Frank Doelger, the Hollywood super producer dressed in fisherman style rain gear equipped with John Lennon sunglasses and Crocodile Dundee head gear.

This wasn’t a remake of a muddy battle scene for ‘Braveheart’, but instead the set of one of the decade’s most hotly anticipated recurring series, ‘Game of Thrones’. Located way up the north of Co Antrim, season three of the HBO fantasy adventure is currently filming scenes at Shane’s Castle, the historical landmark which now lies in ruins, surrounded by 2,600 acres of greenland. Despite the torrential rain, ankle length mud and the odd location change, Dragon Unit had been tented up and ready to shout “Action!” from 6am.

On set in full costume, provided by Michele Clapton (Sense Sensibility), were stars of season two Gwendoline Christie and Nikolaj Coster Waldau, who play skilled warriors Brienne of Tarth and Jaime Lannister. Both characters’ season three plot lines continue on from season two, with the pair filming intense scenes for episode two at Shane’s Castle bridge yesterday. Executive producer Doelger said filming is usually 10 12 hours per day, with just one scene being filmed between five and 10 takes each time. Episodes one and two are being directed by Daniel Minahan.

Both Christie and Coster Waldau ploughed on through their four takes, with grass mounds, scattered leaves and ropes among their props. With a hair dryer on standby for Coster Waldau, not even an ever so slight wardrobe malfunction with his tarnished robe could dampen their spirits.

The location, Shane’s Castle, formerly Eden duff carrick, is a ruined castle from the 14th century. Its former proprietor was Baron William O’Neill, and a descendant of his, Shane MacBrien O’Neill, renamed it Shane’s Castle in the 18th century. Shane’s Castle was previously used for ‘Game of Thrones’ seasons one and two.

Doelger, the Emmy Award winning man behind the scenes, has worked as an executive producer on a variety of productions in Hollywood, from HBO TV series ‘Rome’, to Thaddeus O’Sullivan’s ‘Into the Storm’, starring Brendan Gleeson and Iain Glen. Commenting on filming at Shane’s Castle, Doelger said he prefers the combination of filming both on location and in the studio: “If you’re in the studio everyday it gets very claustrophobic and it’s not as much as a challenge. At the same time, if you’ve been in the rain and the wind and dealing with all those problems then going to the studios is great. The two new stages they’ve built for the Titanic Quarter are absolutely fantastic, they’ve really been a great, great benefit to us”.

The studio Doelger refers to is Belfast’s Paint Hall Studio, which has been the centre of action for the two previous ‘Game of Thrones’ seasons. It offers state of the art green screen facilities which were used extensively for water scenes for season two, and continues to be used for the more technical scenes of season three. The Titanic Quarter is the most recently built site at Paint Hall, which is set on an eight acre site, equipped with five workshops, a green room, and an electric al substation.

Doelger refers to the Irish crew as “terrific” to work with, and says “70 per cent of the people on the crew are local this season. I think Belfast really wanted us here, they did everything they could to make us feel welcome. In a lot of places where you film people are a little bit jaded, they’re not particularly welcoming, and you get a sense that they’re in it just for the money. I think here you really did get a sense that people wanted to build an industry and really wanted to make it work”.

A large part of enticing HBO to Northern Irish shores was down to Northern Ireland Screen and Head of Marketing Moyra Lock, who travelled to the US to meet with HBO chiefs in a bid to market the Northern Irish locations. Speaking earlier this year, Lock said Northern Ireland Screen “mounted extensive marketing campaigns to position Northern Ireland as a worldwide location for production.” The organisation then got Antrim born producer Mark Huffam on board, who invited Doelger himself over to Northern Ireland.

Doelger recalls: “I came here for the first time when I was invited by Mark Huffam, who was trying very hard, and was instrumental in getting the production here. He invited me early on in the conversations when HBO was deciding where to do the show. I think there were various cities being considered and he asked me to come take a look around and I was very impressed in what he did and what he had to show us. I think he found us a perfect match between material and city”.

Huffam went on to produce 10 episodes of season one, and obviously left a lasting effect on HBO and Doelger who returned to Northern Ireland two years in a row. Naomi Liston, key assistant locations manager to HOD Robert Boake, was in charge of sourcing Northern Irish locations once the production had gotten the green light to film there. Liston told IFTN sourcing the right locations can take hours of driving around the countryside until you find the exact spot. Reading the scripts is a big part of her job, and matching Northern Irish countryside to Riverlands, North of the Wall and South of the Wall can sometimes result in getting “lost down a lane”, or she may find “there’s a tumble down of what looks like medieval building or barn and you’ve got your location there”.

Liston continues: “It’s about knowing what’s out there. The estates, and all the estate owners are great, they’re so helpful, they love us, they keep asking us back and they get phone calls from friends from other estates and they phone us up and say ‘we’ve got this estate come and take photos’ so we come and take photos of them which is great”.

Doelger echoes this statement: “Because Belfast is not a place a lot of tourists came to, a lot of people in our crew either from the UK or United States, even if they’ve travelled, have not been here, so I think the fact that everybody came here and were very very impressed with the crew, how welcome they were made to feel. It’s changed their attitude towards the city. It’s been very good for us and I’m hoping it’s been very good for Belfast as well”.

Back on set, the Dragon Unit was carefully filming scenes for episode two of season three, by mounting a camera on a crane at the side of Shane Castle’s bridge to get a shot which went from the water of Lough Neagh right up to over the bridge where Brienne of Tarth and Jaime Lannister continued their scene. Production assistants were on hand to carefully place mounds of grass along the characters’ walk way, checking that each mound of grass was the same colour as the last to ensure continuity. Brown leaves were scattered along the path and walked on by production crew to give an autumn feel.

These scenes are due to be aired at the end of March/early April in 2013. Post production will be carried out by Yellow Moon in Co Down and a US based post production house in spring of 2013.

IFTN can exclusively confirm HBO does have plans to ask Armagh native Brian Kirk to return to the director’s seat for future seasons. Kirk directed three episodes of season one and his latest TV project, ‘Gilded Lilys’, is currently in post production. Doelger said: “Brian is not coming back on season three, he’s been busy on other projects, but actually all of our directors are always invited back depending on their schedule and our schedule. We hope to see him, he’s been very busy since he left us, I think the episodes he did got a lot of attention and were very helpful to him, so we hope he comes back.”

IFTN can also exclusively reveal season three will move production to Redhall Estate next week, a privately owned country house located in Carrickfergus in Antrim. Production will then move to the Quoile Pondage Nature Reserve in Downpatrick which is situated on either side of the River Quoile. The set designers are currently building a jetty for these scenes, which has been described as “quite tricky and hard going”, as a boat of light will be used for the scenes.

Previous Northern Ireland locations used include Audleys Tower in Castleward in Co Down, Tollymore Forest near Newcastle, and the Mourne Mountains. When production is complete on season three this November, all six counties of Northern Ireland will have featured in ‘Game of Thrones’ from seasons one to three. Production will move to Iceland after it wraps in Northern Ireland to take advantage of the authentic snowfall.

Doelger said production will begin on season four in April 2013, and he is hopeful HBO will return to Northern Irish shores again, despite the media giants requesting a financially friendlier location.

“Every year HBO ask us to examine all the various options out there because there are places with more generous tax credits [than Northern Ireland] and I think that as the show gets more expensive that pressure will mount. But if in fact the [UK] tax credit does pass, I think our future here will be assured,” said Doelger. Although he admitted to not knowing the official budget himself, he did say the show’s budget was “significant”. ‘Game of Thrones’ received funding from the Northern Ireland Screen Fund supported by Invest NI and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Other regional links include newly announced cast member from Armagh, who joins returning cast members Aidan Gillen, Michelle Fairley and Jack Gleeson.
