first_imgJIM MCGUINNESS ON THE SATURDAY NIGHT SHOW – DONEGALDAILY.COMDONEGAL manager Jim McGuinness has revealed the simple secrets of  the county’s All-Ireland Champions – confidence.The Glenties man outlined his philosophy for life and sport during a revealing interview with Brendan O’Connor on the Saturday Night Show on RTE1 tonight.And he spoke about being delighted at landing a part-time job working with the soccer side he has supported all his life – Celtic. “I was settling in more than anything else. I met a few players and started the ball rolling,” said Jim about his first week in Glasgow.The father of three spoke about how he motivated the Donegal players to All-Ireland glory with four words – commit, focus, believe and achieve.Host O’Connor asked him about how he had been turned down twice for the senior team’s management position before getting it the third time.“I saw a talented bunch and that’s why I went for the job….I was the only person in for the job the last time I went for it,” laughed McGuinness. He also spoke about winning the All-Ireland with the 1992 squad and how later got a job with the ESB but was never happy there, wanting to work in sport.So he went back when he was 23 to repeat his Leaving Cert – to objections from his mum!He later went on to a degree and a masters in sports science and sports psychology.“There are young people all over the country and they can be what ever they want to be…as long as they believe,” said Jim, whose wife was in the audience.On his new job in Glasgow, McGuinness said: “Celtic is very much like Gaelic football clubs because it is community based and family orientated. “Neil Lennon made me feel very welcome and introduced me to all the staff at Lennoxtown….it was great getting a job with a club that I have supported all my life.”Brendan O’Connor joked at the end of the interview that perhaps the national soccer side might want to do with his services….JIM MCGUINNESS ON SATURDAY NIGHT SHOW: ‘THE SECRETS OF DONEGAL’S SUCCESS’ was last modified: December 2nd, 2012 by BrendaShare 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)Tags:JIM MCGUINNESS ON SATURDAY NIGHT SHOW: ‘THE SECRETS OF DONEGAL’S SUCCESS’last_img read more

MercedesAMGs nextgeneration sports cars will be quieter report says

first_img 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro first drive: Extreme yet surprisingly approachable 8:42 Review • 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT53 4-Door review: Defying expectations 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT first drive: A refresh that polishes an already good car Post a comment Mercedes-Benz 2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA45 packs one hell of a four-cylinder engine Now playing: Watch this: More From Roadshow Share your voice Enlarge ImageYour neighbors will probably appreciate the shift to interior sound synthesizers, even if you won’t. Mercedes-Benz Automakers have been on a tear lately with their exhausts. Whether it’s the muted crackles and pops of AMG’s straight-six mild hybrid setup or the all-out insanity of the Jaguar F-Type R, OEMs have upped their noise game in a big way over the last several years. But, apparently, it’s all about to come crashing down.Mercedes-AMG is warning that its upcoming new line of sporty vehicles will be a fair bit quieter than in generations past, reports, citing statements that Mercedes-AMG product planner Bastian Bogenschutz made during a press drive for the A45 S. The timing couldn’t be worse, because these cars pack the M139, otherwise known as the most powerful production four-cylinder engine ever. That deserves some noise.The aforementioned hot hatch and its sedan-ish sibling, the CLA45 S, are AMG’s first cars coming out under new European regulations concerning exhaust loudness. In case you’re wondering why automakers can’t just hide the sound away in a specific mode, it’s because the regulations measure the loudest exhaust system the car has on offer. preview-928x522Enlarge ImagePeople have been cutting out catalytic converters and replacing exhausts for decades. This isn’t a problem the aftermarket can’t solve. Mercedes-AMG Even worse, Europe’s regulations are about the flip the bird (or the V, depending on your country of origin) to the rest of the world. Borgenschutz told Motoring that the company could design different exhausts for markets outside Europe, but cited complexities and cost for reasons why the company won’t do that.I hope you like synthetic sound, because that’s what automakers plan to use in order to provide some sort of aural symphony in lieu of the cannons out back. Heck, a number of ’em already have these systems in place, whether that involves physical tubes channeling intake noise to the cabin or electronic systems that pump sound through the speakers. Major noise fans can always upgrade to an aftermarket exhaust, as there are many companies building exhausts out there, each with their own unique note. Those third-party bits can get mighty expensive, though.While that’s a big old bummer, it’s unclear just how many automakers will follow in Mercedes-AMG’s footsteps and make things quieter across the board. Jalopnik’s David Tracy pointed out that, during a recent drive of the Alpina B7, BMW’s representatives told him the European-spec car had a quieter exhaust than the car destined for the US. Then again, the B7 starts at $142,800, so maybe Alpina can pony up the dough for a second exhaust system. Worse comes to worse, it’s nothing a reciprocating saw can’t solve. 2019 McLaren 600LT: Balanced and bonkers Auto Tech Sports Cars Performance Cars Tags More about 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT53 4-Door 0 31 Photos 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT53 4-door: A fancy-pants muscle car Mercedes-Benzlast_img read more
