New guided walks programme aims to rediscover the River Tees

HERITAGE: Walker's approach the famous Tees Newport Bridge.

HERITAGE: Walker’s approach the famous Tees Newport Bridge.

There is a new project to breath new life into the riverside through a series of guided walks along the landscape of the River Tees.

The walks aim to introduce people to the network of paths and tracks that communities have used over the centuries, celebrating the natural and social heritage of the River Tees.

The River Tees Rediscovered Landscape Partnership, which has been supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund, aims to develop the river and its surrounding area through conservation and community activities.

The Heritage Lottery fund uses National Lottery players’ money to help people across the UK explore, enjoy and protect the heritage they care about.

They want to reconnect the people of the Tees with their river – a natural feature that has moulded the physical and cultural development of the landscape and communities through which it runs.

The River Tees stands as both a barrier and a link between communities. Throughout history people have looked for ways to cross it; ways to stop people crossing it; ways to cross it without stopping shipping; and ways to enjoy it. This is a complex story of fords and fixed bridges from the Romans to the Victorians. Roman fortifications, English Civil War defences, 20th century moving bridges, the Tees Barrage and the Teesdale Way.

Commenting on the programme, Chris Corbett, River Tees Rediscovered Community and Access Officer, said: “Walking is a brilliant way of getting close up to the natural beauty of the River Tees and an ideal opportunity to see how people have lived alongside the river for generations. The Tees is a great natural asset and by taking part in our guided walks programme, you will be walking the footsteps of Roman soldiers, Anglo-Saxon holy men, Viking settlers and Victorian entrepreneurs and industrialists.

Topics covered by the walks will include history, wildlife and industrial heritage. Last week, Cleveland Industrial Archaeology Society secretary Alan Betteney joined the River Tees Rediscovered team for a riverside walk from the Tees Barrage to the Transporter Bridge  , throwing light on the engineering challenges and triumphs posed by crossing the Tees.

The project is working towards a vision to build a society of sustainable communities, which are vibrant, healthy and safe, which respect the local and global environment where individuals and enterprise prosper.

Groundwork NE & Cumbria wish to create sustainable communities by developing initiatives that cut across economic, environmental and social issues.

Through the help of passionate individuals, proactive public services and innovative parts of the private sector, they believe their vision can be met.

For more information on the project and events and how to get involved, please visit the website or call the team on 01642 616144.

Boro landmark back up and running

The iconic Transporter Bridge is now back in action following the completion of the latest phase of development in its 103-year history.

The re-opening in March follows the renovation works to the Bridge’s gondola as part of the £2.6m Heritage Lottery Fund-supported Tees Transporter Bridge Visitor Experience Project.

The renovated gondola has been enhanced and now features newly installed glass sidings offering stunning views up and down the River Tees in keeping with the design of the original bridge.

Work will continue on the completion of the Transporter’s new lift, visitor centre improvements and interpretation and heritage trail that will enhance the bridge’s standing as a leading landmark.  It is anticipated that the project will be completed by May, with a showcase weekend to follow in late May.

The regeneration team at Tees Transporter Bridge have been constantly plagued with setbacks, as the completion date kept being put back.

The bridge was only planned to stay closed for 40 days initially, but when contractors started work they encountered more and more problems that prolonged it’s re-development.

The Transporter will operate with new opening hours of 7.15am – noon and 1pm – 6.15pm (Monday to Friday) and 9.30am – noon and 1pm – 3pm (Saturday).

BACK IN ACTION: The bridge is back in working order.

BACK IN ACTION: The bridge is back in working order.

For the first four weeks crossings for drivers and foot passengers was free of charge.

After the free travel period, the cost of crossing the Bridge is now 60p each way for pedestrians and cyclists, with a journey costing £1.30 each way for single-bay motor vehicles.The popular Bridge Saver Card scheme offering discounted travel at £23.40 (motor vehicles) and £10.80 (pedestrians and cyclists) for 20 trips will continue to operate.

Councillor Charlie Rooney, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, said: “With a smart new coat of paint and  the new gondola in place, we were keen to allow Bridge users to start using it again as soon as possible. These enhancements will further cement the Transporter’s place as a leading heritage, education and tourism destination of regional and national importance.”

 

 

FAMOUS FACTS ABOUT THE TRANSPORTER BRIDGE

  • The Transporter Bridge is a marvel of Edwardian engineering.
  • The bridge clears the river by 160 feet.
  • It featured in a scene of the hit British Movie Billy Elliot.
  • There’s only one other bridge of this type in the country.

Miliband visits Teesside to help reclaim Stockton South

20150427_135325

Ed Miliband

 

LABOUR leader Ed Miliband visited the Conservative held Stockton South, and promised to deliver affordable housing and caps on private rent.

Taking to the stage at Stockton’s ARC theatre, Mr Miliband talked of  a “housing crisis” faced by the country as he went on to promise that Labour would remove stamp duty for first time buyers, to help potential home-owners onto the property ladder.

Cutting the stamp duty would benefit nine out of 10 people, according to the Labour manifesto, but the Tories have claimed that this plan is “unfunded”. Mr Miliband hit back at this claiming it would cost £225m a year, which would be paid for through higher earners having an increase in tax.

20150427_135328

Greeted by the press.

When the constituency was lost to the Conservatives five years ago, it was the first time since 1997 that Labour hadn’t held the seat. With this in mind, Miliband was quick to show his support for Stockton South’s Labour candidate, Louise Baldock.

Miliband said: “Louise, we all are working with you, because we know what a fantastic job you will do for the people of Stockton South.”

The Stockton South seat was won by only 332 votes in 2010 and clearly Labour are pushing to gain the constituency back. With such a narrow margin, the Labour leader must have placed the area as a high priority.

20150427_175925 EDIT

With the General Election just around the corner on May 7th, Miliband will be hoping that Baldock can help win this seat back and pin down both Stockton South and North as Labour constituencies again, helping Miliband to get one step closer to 10 Downing Street.

Boro’s final promotion push!

IT’S getting to that time of year in the footballing calendar where things start to get a little tense!

The championship table is too close to call. With only three points separating 1st and 4th place it may go to the last weekend to decide who gets the automatic promotion spots.

Boro fans can already be happy with a top six place guaranteed, but they will not wish for the roller-coaster of emotions that comes with the play-offs.

A top two place should have been already cemented, but after a few disappointing results away from home their dreams of an automatic spot started to fade away.

Their hopes of automatic promotion are still not out of sight though, as their last two fixtures are very winnable games against Ex Premier League Fulham and Brighton.

KEY MAN: Striker Paddy Bamford has been star player all season.

KEY MAN: Striker Paddy Bamford has been star player all season.

But do they have what it takes to gain promotion back to the big time after six miserable years away?

They have one of the brightest young managers in Aitor Karanka, they have the goal machine that is Patrick Bamford leading the line and they also have some of the best support in the league!

Aitor Karanka said: “We have to manage the pressure – the promotion race will go to the last game of the season.”

Tside reporter, Mark Riding, spoke to Boro fans to get their opinion’s on the team’s final push.

So let’s get behind the lads and support them in their final couple of games!

YouTube Takeover

A few years ago YouTube was just a growing community of people passionate about making videos.

The site is improving more and more with a huge amount of users creating channels and watching different content.

The people behind the biggest channels are now viewed as celebrities and attend YouTube gatherings like Vid Con, Summer in the City and Playlist Live, which allows millions of fans to meet their idols.

Screen Shot 2015-03-26 at 22.03.27

Being a successful YouTuber is helping people like Grace Helbig, Tyler Oakley, Dan & Phil, KSIolajidebt and many more become successful, and enabling them to branch out beyond YouTube videos by publishing books, presenting, and releasing music

The people listed above and many more, have succeeded in dominating the web and are now attempting to take over mainstream music and television.

Pewdiepie is a gamer and has one of the most popular channels on YouTube with 36,267,311 subscribers. 

He stated: “When I started my YouTube channel in 2010, I never imagined that one day it would be the most subscribed channel in the world and that I would be a part of such a great community,”

Because of the large amount of subscribers, top YouTubers now have the power to target a huge audience and are able to reach millions of people with just a short video. This could affect mainstream media a lot due to the fact that they are receiving more views than certain types of television programmes.

Six or seven years ago if you had told someone that being a YouTuber would be a valid career choice and that being vloggers and ‘online personalities’ could make you famous, many people would have been uncertain about it.

Teesside University now include a media landscape lesson which teaches you how to successfully create a YouTube channel.

Many people who were asked about choosing to be a YouTuber as a career agreed, saying that the money is good and you get the chance to travel and meet new people.

Nowadays more YouTubers are making television appearances and are receiving movie premier invitations.

Each YouTuber has their own genre and they know what their audience wants. Whether they are beauty vloggers, gamers or travel vloggers.

Dan Howell, 23, aims his videos at the younger generation and is the first to create his own channel trailer:

KSIolajidebt plays Fifa for a living and also collaborates with his own YouTube gaming group the Sidemen. The 21 year old has now released a new rap single featuring famous rapper P Money.

Screen Shot 2015-03-26 at 21.46.52

YouTubers can earn up to £4000 per mention of a product in a video.

The song is about the YouTubers lamborghini, which proves that many content creators are earning a lot of money off their videos from sponsorship and product placement.

Aswell as boasting about his car, the gamer takes pride in smashing laptops, game consoles and chairs in his videos, which leaves a list of comments by people wondering how he affords to do this.

Vloggers get a cut of the revenue from advertising displayed on their content. This type of earning capacity has gone up 60% in the last year, mainly thanks to mobile phones, according to Sara Mormino, a director at YouTube.

“If you have a very strong passion for a particular area, be it beauty, fashion, tech or gaming, I’d give it a shot,” she says.

Sara believes the UK is one of the global leaders in vlogging and many rank among the top earners globally.

With the all the money earned from videos and appearances in traditional entertainment its no surprise that more and more YouTubers will be taking over non-traditional media in the future.

At the beginning of YouTube, most videos produced for the site didn’t have great cameras or equipment, the editing was not always the best and making videos from your webcam was acceptable.

If you look at content today you can see the difference with special lighting and HD cameras.

Due to the fact that many people on the site are becoming well-known YouTube have decided to dedicate a rewind special every year to all viral videos, including the biggest YouTube stars and base the short video off an entire years worth of news, music and movies.

The most recent YouTube Rewind received 89,117,523 views so far:

This video shows just how big the YouTube community is and how the trend to document your life has spread worldwide, showing YouTubers from all different cultures and backgrounds.

It also proves that the top YouTubers can impact an audience with a single video, which could be useful for larger media organisations when it comes to sharing their content.

YouTube also celebrated its 10th birthday this year which gave users a chance to share their favourite viral videos throughout the years, which obviously included the first YouTube video to be published.

The first video showed a 25 year-old at the zoo. He posted the 19-second clip titled “Me at the Zoo” on 23 April 2005, which was filmed at San Diego Zoo’s elephant enclosure.

YouTube has now become a global phenomenon with over one billion users and 300 hours of video uploaded onto the site every minute.

Dying Light: Game Review

Game Title: Dying Light
Publisher: Techland
Release Date: 27/01/15
Tside Rating: Tside Rating: 4 out of 5Tside Rating: 4 out of 5Tside Rating: 4 out of 5Tside Rating: 4 out of 5Tside Rating: 4 out of 5

Since Dying Light was released by it’s developers, Techland, on January 27 2015 it has received critical acclaim from industry experts, receiving a 8.5/10 from IGN and a 9/10 from Steam.

The game centres around the fictional city of Harran, a city set to hold an international sports festival before an infectious disease breaks out, turning innocent civilians into blood-lusting corpses.

The main protagonist of the story is Kyle Crane, a mercenary hired by the Global Relief Effort to recover confidential documents. The holder of the documents is a politician-turned-warlord named Rais, who’s gang of thugs are constantly causing trouble for the survivors in Harran.

Dying Light is an open world RPG, meaning you are free to explore the city as much as you wish. This means you can search for hidden Easter Eggs, such as the XPCaliber, or complete the vast array of side missions.

Terrifying-Yet-Gorgeous-Dying-Light-Screenshots-10-1024x576

Exploring the city is much more fun than you may think; vehicles are not used in the game at all because everyone who had a car has either abandoned it, crashed it or is now a brain eating zombie…

However, one of the main selling points of the game is that it combines traditional zombie slaying techniques with Parkour. From climbing up buildings to slide tackling the undead, this element of the game makes running around much more fun.

The game rewards persistent players, meaning the more running around and zombie bashing you do, the better you get at it.

The free-running controls within the game are simple and intuitive but will at times leave you very frustrated. Occasionally they’re unresponsive just when you need them; meaning you will plummet to your death on more than one occassion.

Aside from that, the Parkour is clunky to begin with but improves vastly as the character gains more experience.

The same could be said for the combat controls. Dying Light moves away from the hap-hazard slashing that’s present in other zombie games, such as Dead Rising. In Dead Rising the character can mow down crowds of zombies in a car or a “Rollerhawg” (Dead Rising 3) which is very satisfying, but not what Dying Light is trying to encompass.

Dying Light focuses more on evading zombies rather than fighting them, and when you do it’s not easy. To begin with it will take several swings with a gas pipe just to get a zombie on the ground. However, towards the end of the game you’ll be removing the heads of three zombies all at once.

Combat, on the whole, is very good and the AI is intelligent enough to stop you mowing down row after row of undead flesh.

The game also features a dynamic timescale meaning as you play, time slowly passes and eventually it becomes night time. Players are warned to stay inside during the night and the option to sleep through the night is one that is definitely worth using towards the start of the game.

Zombies become much more violent and different, more powerful mutations emerge during the night making survival very difficult for the novice player. Thankfully, those who do decide to stay outside during the night will be rewarded with double XP, meaning upgrading your character is much easier.

2015-01-31_00002-100566341-orig

As previously mentioned, the gameplay itself is very good. The game is easy to get to grips with and is fun to play. There’s a wide range of missions, the majority of which are optional but the player is rewarded for undertaking the optional ones. As well as this, there’s the option for co-op online play, where up to four people can team up to take on the undead. This is good if you want to try and get some more XP, or if you want a change of pace. You can work with random players, or with friends, meaning the online option is there if you and your friends just want to tear apart some zombies.

Looking at the game, Techland have made it very pretty. The clipping is fantastic throughout and the attention to detail is second to none. They’ve also incorporated a massive draw distance, meaning you can stand on top of one of Harran’s tallest towers and still see across the majority of the map.

Overall, I would rate Dying Light 4/5 because it’s a spectacular looking game, it flows very well and has a very interesting and dynamic storyline. The only ways it could be improved are more responsive controls and more side missions as once I’d completed the game I was still left wanting more.

PRIZED POSSESSION: My signed Future Hearts album sleeve!

Pop-punk poster boys All Time Low have just released their much hyped new album ‘Future Hearts’.

The boys from Baltimore have been going since 2003 and singer Alex Gaskarth, lead guitarist Jack Barakat, bassist Zack Merrick, and drummer Rian Dawson have already enjoyed a string of hits.

I feel like I should preface this review with the fact that I am a huge All Time Low fan boy. I love all their previous albums and queued for an hour for a 20 second signing session at HMV Middlesbrough!

Following a massive UK tour, where new songs like ‘Something’s Gotta Give’ were played, and a campaign trail including visits to Radio 1’s Live Lounge, the album was well hyped before its release.

Three singles featured on the album have also already been released onto YouTube by the band; Something’s Gotta Give, Kids In The Dark and Tidal Waves.

Despite Mark Hoppus’ guest appearance on Tidal Waves, it is probably my least favourite track on the album. It’s quite a slow one, but has a chorus that will likely be belted out at future concerts.

At first, Kids In The Dark didn’t hit the right note, but after a few listens, I definitely found it stuck in my head. It’s also highly resonant of their past teenage rebellion anthems, such as The Reckless & The Brave from 2012’s ‘Don’t Panic’. It’s definitively modern All Time Low; what’s not to love?

Something’s Gotta Give was the first song released from Future Hearts, and it’s still stuck in my head after a month. It’s insanely catchy, with a stomping chorus and rousing verses, and a pretty awesome video to boot.

On first listen, Future Hearts was actually a bit disappointing. A lot of the songs seemed to just blend together, bar a couple of stand out tracks and while a lot of All Time Low’s songs sound slightly similar, it’s not to this degree.

But after a couple of listens, more variance appeared between the songs, and the different tones and rhythms really started jumping out.

There are still some songs that I’m personally not wild about, like Tidal Waves, Cinderblock Garden and Bail Me Out (which features Joel Madden from Good Charlotte), but maybe it will just take a few more listens!

However, there are some real stand out tracks, including Something’s Gotta Give, Kids In The Dark, Missing You and Satellite.

Overall, it’s a very well-rounded album, ticking all the boxes for an All Time Low album. Upbeat, rebellious anthems, check. Slow, melodic songs, check. Catchy as hell, check.

Future Hearts is available to download from iTunes, Google Play store and Amazon.

Krakow, through my eyes

20150107_142632

 

Imagine an old fashioned Christmas card, featuring a fairy tale-style dimly lit town, covered in fresh white snow.

Imagine the quiet hum of a busy tram, and the near silence of a handful of locals, crunching their way home through the crisp snow.

With a minus six degree chill desperately hugging me through my thick layers, numerous pairs of socks, big boots and scarf, this fairy tale Christmas card scene is exactly what blew me away upon arrival to Krakow.

20150109_133517

REBECCA, ROB AND HANNAH: Between the Jewish Quarters and Old Town

After an early 2am coach pickup from Teesside University, by 12 noon we finally made it to Poland.

The final descent into Krakow airport gave our eyes the pleasure of an endless view of snow covered hills, roads and houses. This could have easily been mistaken for somewhere like Alaska, Canada, Finland or Iceland.

But Poland? Oh yes; Poland at its absolute finest.

On the first afternoon, we got the chance to explore Krakow at our own leisure and to absorb the different culture from what we are used to back in Middlesbrough.

The sun was already setting by 3.30pm.

After walking just a few minutes from our hotel, we reached the Main Square of Old Town Krakow.

Stood, at an enormous towering height, decorated from top to bottom with lights and baubles, was the single most stunning Christmas tree I have ever set my eyes on.

Look left, and there were scattered sheds covered with lights and wreathes and the smell of authentic meats and cheeses filled the square.

It was soon clear to me that Poland was still celebrating Christmas, as Epiphany was the previous day (on January 6th), and is another huge celebration in their culture and heritage.

POLISH CUISINE: Christmas food shacks in the Town Square

 

The following day (day two), was an extremely difficult and mentally challenging day, at Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Personally, I find it very hard to write down or type out my thoughts and feelings, because what I experienced can’t be put into words.

The horror, death, exhaustion and eerie peace that fell over Auschwitz-Birkenau is something that will stay with me forever and constantly tap at my mind.

If the chance to go to this Concentration Camp to learn and see the horrors that happened there arises, I believe everyone should take it and embrace it, and use the opportunity as a personal experience and learning curve.

Day three was spent at the Schindler museum and factory, which takes us finally to the penultimate day (day four) when we visited the Galicya Museum and met a survivor of the Holocaust, Monika Goldwasser.

“KINDNESS”: Myself and Monika Goldwasser, such a brave inspiration

 

What an honour.

I have never met anyone with such a sad look in their eyes.

She was beautiful. Her hair was pinned up into a neat bun, and she had an immaculate dose of bright lipstick.

But her eyes, although beaming bright, were so sad.

Learning of the heart-breaking events almost brought me to tears – sometimes tears of sorrow and sometimes tears of happiness and hope.

Monika was born into a Jewish family, so was already vulnerable to the monstrosity of the World War 2 events, and a victim of the Holocaust.

Her parents, knowing they had no chance of survival themselves, saved the life of their only child, Monika, by taking her to a nunnery and leaving her there with the hope of her never being traced and found.

Monika was left at the nunnery wrapped in a bundle of clothes, with a single piece of paper attached to her.

This single piece of paper, with her birth name, date of birth and names of her parents, was what gave her hope, and gave her a chance of finding her identity later on in life.

The story she told, whilst sipping her tea from a white cup and saucer, could be compared to Homer’s epic The Odyssey or The Iliad.

The unimaginable events, from the murder of her parents, to the killing of both her good friend and nun from the nunnery, to the more optimistic occasions of her finding out who she was, and meeting long lost family members…

This story, her story, is one of pure inspiration, sorrow, bravery, and hope.

The one thing that has stuck in my head, which I will carry with me forever, is when she ended with: “If there is one thing you should carry out in life, it should be kindness.”

Tside goes behind the scenes of a film set

Ocean Heaven is a short movie produced by Susie Wang. The film’s design and production lasted about three months and used locations in Whitby and Saltburn.

The movie tells a beautiful and unfortunate story of a little girl missing her deceased father.

Tside Reporter He  Niu went behind the scenes of  Ocean Heaven  to meet the team behind the film.

Director Susie Wang  and actress in a leading role

Director Susie Wang and actress Robin in a leading role

Susie Wang, a TV and Film Production student studying in Teesside University, is the director of Ocean Heaven.

She wears many hats, not only is she  Director, but she is alos Screenwriter, Director of Photography and the Editor.

Susie does everything from  writing  the screenplay, choosing locations and cast, shooting to editing.

But how did she come up with the idea for the film?.

Susie said:”One day I saw a little girl holding a plastic bag with three little goldfish.”

“She pointed at the fish and said the biggest is dad, that is mom and this is me.”

Susie took this idea as the basis for her  movie.

Susie developed  a story and wrote a script.

“I wrote out a first draft  but the final screenplay took a long time to complete after four major modifications with my tutor and friends,” Susie said.

Jack Bennett, who plays the little girl’s father, is a TV and Film Production student.

He said:” I have a double identity as photographer and actor in Susie’s crew.”

“This is a very special experience for me. I did not do it for reward; I did it for love of it.”

The students working on  Ocean Heaven were attracted by the story and learned from each other.

Susie said:” This micro film is my final project and having a low budget is a very big problem.”

“It is very hard to look for low rentable  houses.

“But I was lucky and after about three weeks I found a very nice landlord.”

The man actress is a 5 year-old girl called Robin.

And working with a child actor proved a big challenge for Susie.

“Sometimes she did not understand the moods I wanted her to express or my ideas,” Susie said.

“I would act things out front of her then she imitated me.

“Robin’s mother also helped me to teach Robin how to do things.”

” When we did our seaside scene, it was very windy and cold.

“We filmed nearly seven hours and everyone shivered in the wind.

“It is hard for a child, but Robin did it.
