New Gardai appointed to patrol Laois roads

first_img Community RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR New Gardai appointed to patrol Laois roads WhatsApp Twitter WhatsApp A further 63 Gardaí have been successful in a recent competition and will be appointed in October 2018, bringing the total number of Gardaí in Roads Policing to over 700.Further appointments will be made in 2019, 2020 and 2021 in order to reach a commitment given by the Garda Commissioner to incrementally increase the numbers in Roads Policing to 1,031 by 2021.Deputy Garda Commissioner John Twomey addressed the newly appointed members on completion of their Roads Policing induction course in Nenagh when he congratulated them on being selected to work full time in Roads Policing.In his address, Commissioner Twomey emphasised the importance of the role these members will play in making our roads and our communities safer and protecting road users from the risk of death and serious injury.Commissioner Twomey also said that this must be done “with the support of the community and encouraged members to be utterly professional in their work, to be balanced in their actions and be both reasonable and proportionate in the execution of their duties.“Last year was the safest year recorded on Irish roads and the challenge is to continue the hard work to ensure that the downward trend in road deaths and serious injuries continues.”He asked that each and every member work to become a champion of road safety in their policing division and to become experts in all areas of road safety and roads policing.A key element of the work of the new Roads Policing Unit will be to deny criminals the use of the roads network.In addition to focusing on the lifesaver offenses of speeding, seatbelts, mobile phones and driving under the influence, there will be a significant focus on crime prevention and crime detection.Roads Policing will now work closely with crime units to target known criminals and to disrupt their activities through strict enforcement of road traffic legislation.The Roads Policing units have recently been prioritised with new vehicles such as 4X4 Jeeps for use on motorways and which were invaluable during the recent severe weather.This deployment of the additional human resources and equipment is testimony of the commitment at the highest levels within An Garda Síochána to Road Safety and Roads Policing.SEE ALSO – Referendum Watch: How Laois voted in 1983 Right to Life Referendum Twitter By Alan Hartnett – 1st May 2018 Previous articleJOB VACANCY: Stradbally Fayre looking to fill a number of rolesNext articlePermission sought for extension at Laois school Alan HartnettStradbally native Alan Hartnett is a graduate of Knockbeg College who has worked in the local and national media since 2008.

Canadian government preparing to protect Canadians from coronavirus

first_imgHospital workers 4X-image/iStockphoto The disease known as COVID-19 has roiled financial markets, spurring the Bank of Canada to take a deeper cut to its trend-setting interest rate this week than it originally envisioned. It has caused sharp declines in trade with China, a drop in oil prices, upended travel plans, and sickened dozens of Canadians and hundreds of thousands more globally.The full effect COVID-19 will have on the national economy will depend on the depth and geographical spread of the coronavirus outbreak in Canada, Morneau said in a breakfast speech to the Canadian Club of Toronto.Speaking afterwards, Morneau said the government has the fiscal wiggle room to help businesses through any challenges, as well as workers who may have to be away from work for any period of time.He said the upcoming budget will have a “greater provision for risk” in the economy, and help with immediate health issues, while trying to decrease the federal debt as a percentage of the national economy, known as the debt-to-GDP ratio.“In crafting a budget, we’re going to need to balance all of those things — as we always do,” Morneau told reporters.“What I can tell you is we will maintain our fiscal firepower to deal with potential challenges down the road while ensuring that we are also dealing with the issues immediately.”In November, the government reduced the cushion for this fiscal year to $1.5 billion because data through two-thirds of the fiscal year suggested risk “as a whole has been reduced.” The fall economic update had a $3 billion cushion in its projections for the new fiscal year that starts April 1.The figure is projected revenues the government sets aside annually as a shock absorber if the money doesn’t materialize due to an economic downturn. If untapped, it can go to pay down the federal debt.The number counts against the deficit, which is projected to be $28.1 billion before accounting for any new spending promises.CIBC chief economist Avery Shenfeld, in a note following Morneau’s speech, suggested the finance minister shouldn’t be tempted to cut spending or raise taxes to hit a deficit target. He added a one-time bump in federal health transfers to provinces may be in order to cover any increased costs from COVID-19, as well as direct fiscal stimulus to prod consumer spending, which the economy relies upon.Morneau said the fiscal response here would account for domestic conditions and may look different than in other countries.The federal NDP’s health critic said Morneau’s comment amounted to “announcing that you will announce something” in the face of immediate needs.“People who can’t afford to take a sick day need help right now,” Don Davies said in a statement.The Opposition Conservatives questioned how much the Liberals could muster in spending. Pat Kelly, the party’s associate finance critic, said the Liberals failed to prepare for a downturn by running deep deficits during better economic times.“Now the cupboard is bare as Canada’s economy faces both a domestic economic crisis of capital flight, project cancellations and supply disruptions due to the illegal blockades, and the prospect of a global downturn triggered by the coronavirus,” he said in a statement.The blockades cancelled train service and prompted temporary layoffs as demonstrators across the country showed support for Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs who oppose construction of the Coastal GasLink pipeline through their territory in British Columbia.Morneau said he sees the issues around the blockades as being “largely resolved,” but added, “will things happen again? I can’t predict.” The federal government will provide financial help for quarantined Canadians over novel coronavirus concerns, and pad its budget contingency should the economic hit be prolonged and deep, Finance Minister Bill Morneau said Friday.Details about those plans will be coming shortly, Morneau said, who also noted federal officials are mulling measures to insulate the economy from the effects of the outbreak that has now spread to more than 75 countries around the world.

Lawyers welcome stripping of charitable status and public naming and shaming of institutions that fail to sign up

first_imgLawyers welcome stripping of charitable status and public naming and shaming of institutions that fail to sign up Maurice Blackburn LawyersLawyers for abuse survivors have welcomed legislation that will see the naming and shaming of institutions and the striping of charitable status for institutions that have still not signed up to the National Redress Scheme that will be tabled in Federal Parliament next week.Maurice Blackburn Abuse Law Principal Michelle James said it is vitally important that institutions sign up to the National Redress Scheme as until they do so survivors cannot have their applications processed.“Unfortunately are still seeing many institutions, including those identified in the Royal Commission, failing to sign up to the scheme with some survivors dying before they receive compensation.“It’s now clear that only thing any of these institutions understand is the imposition of tough financial penalties and public shaming,” Ms James saidMs James said that despite the 30 June deadline or institutions to sign up around 80 have still failed to do so despite having the financial capacity to join the scheme.“Clearly the carrot approach has not worked in these cases, it’s high time for state and federal governments to bring out their big stick”, Ms James said.“There are no excuses for institutions that have known for many months that they have been named in a redress application but have refused to join,” she said.Ms James said one such institution is the Jehovah’s Witnesses, which has been singled out as one of the most prominent holdouts“In our experience the Jehovah’s Witnesses are one of the worst offenders when it comes to delaying claims and withholding relevant documents.“Their failure to sign up to redress is just another example of the hard tactics that they employ when defending claims by survivors, which is contrary to the recommendations of the Royal Commission.Ms James said that survivors deserve a scheme that stands true to the recommendations of the Royal Commission“State, territory and federal governments also need to agree to lift the maximum redress payment to $200,000 and adult survivors of abuse should be provided with professional counselling, in line with the Royal Commission recommendations.“We also continue to urge the Federal Government to step up as the funder of last resort for national institutions to ensure the scheme can operate efficiently,” Ms James said.“Finally, it is important remember that common law claims for compensation are available as an alternative to seeking limited compensation through the National Redress Scheme, and these claims are often more reflective of the severity of the abuse that survivors of institutional sexual abuse have suffered,” she said. /Public Release.

Testing at Former Transport Depot confirms lead dust is present following renovations

first_imgTesting at Former Transport Depot confirms lead dust is present following renovations Testing carried out at the Former Transport Depot in Kingston has found lead particulates in surface dust.The Former Transport Depot, home of the Old Bus Depot Markets, has been closed since early 2020. During this time $6.5 million of renovations have been underway to improve the safety, accessibility and sustainability of the facility. Renovations were due to be completed in March 2021.In the course of undertaking the renovations, dust samples collected from the Former Transport Depot were analysed and showed the presence of lead particles.Following this, a licensed assessor tested surfaces in and around the facility in February. Some of the test results returned a lead reading above the adopted threshold limit on surfaces. The contractor also set up air monitoring test points in late January. All results returned during that testing period show that the concentration of atmosphere lead was below the detectable limits.It is likely that the lead dust has been present with minimal disturbance at the Former Transport Depot for many years but may have been unsettled during recent construction activities.As a result, the facility will undergo cleaning and remediation prior to reopening to the public.Old Bus Depot Market stallholders were informed of the situation today.Access to the site will continue to be restricted until cleaning and remediation can occur. The Old Bus Depot Markets will not open until after cleaning and remediation is complete. Work is still being undertaken to determine the cost and extent of the cleaning and remediation, but it is expected to take at least three months.The ACT Government will work with contractors, stakeholders and employees who were in the building during construction and may need to undergo testing. /Public Release.

Sir Patrick Allen by the Chinese Ambassador to Jamaica, His Excellency Zheng Qingdian, during a ceremony at King’s House on August 2.The brand new Acer computers are expected to benefit the approximately 160 young people who frequently use the IBI villages in the communities of Petersfield, Westemoreland; Spring Village, St. Catherine; and Albert Town, Trelawny.Under the programme, five computers will be distributed to the Spring Village Development Foundation, three to the Association of Clubs in Petersfield and two to the Albert Town community centre.Speaking at the handing over ceremony, the Governor-General expressed gratitude to the Chinese Government for the donation, noting that it will go a far way in assisting the youth to increase their access to knowledge and to build their skills.Meanwhile, Executive Director, Spring Village Development Foundation, Randy Finnikin, who spoke on behalf of the recipients, said he was grateful to the Chinese Government for the well-needed contribution. “This (donation) goes to the core of positioning our people for the emerging (ICT) opportunities existing in Jamaica and across the world,” he added.“We are also grateful for the IBI standing with us on the ground, as we build stronger and more resilient communities. We are encouraged by your continued support and we want to say thank you to the Governor-General for standing with us throughout the process of transformation, as we build together,” he said.Special Advisor to the Governor-General, Ambassador Evadne Coye, told JIS News that the IBI/WIFI centres were developed in partnership with LIME Jamaica to help young people discover new opportunities for building themselves through the use of technology.“We see information and communications technology (ICT) as being a very important aspect of how we can achieve good for the young people. So, not only will they earn more income, but they can make a positive impact on their families, communities and the nation,” she said.The I Believe Initiative (IBI) is a values-based initiative developed on the concept that “there is nothing wrong with Jamaica that cannot be fixed with what is right with Jamaica.”The initiative was born out of the inaugural speech given by the Governor-General at the swearing-in ceremony on February 26, 2009.Following two years of broad-based consultations, the IBI was developed and was officially launched in May 2011 at King’s House.

Bill standardizes veterans treatment courts

first_img The measure requires veterans facing misdemeanor or felony charges to apply to the state attorney for admission Cord ByrdA measure that seeks to standardize veterans treatment court programs has cleared the Legislature.The Senate voted 40-0 on April 26 to approve HB 7023 by the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee. The bill was managed by Rep. Cord Byrd, R-Jacksonville Beach and an attorney.Sen. Danny Burgess, R-Zephyrhills, sponsored the companion, SB 764. Just before the final vote, Burgess added a conforming amendment that would expand the programs to include victims of “military sexual trauma.”“That issue is very important,” Burgess said.The Legislature created veterans treatment courts in 2012. The proposed bill would create a statewide standard for operating them, but not affect current program participants.The measure would, among other things, require veterans facing misdemeanor or felony charges to apply to the state attorney for admission into the program. The chief judge would be authorized to determine, on a case-by-case basis, whether to admit dishonorably discharged veterans.That concerned Sen. Jason Pizzo, D-Miami and a former prosecutor.“Now we’re allowing the state attorney’s office, and not just the judges, to determine who is eligible,” he said. “Therefore, there’s wild inconsistencies on who is being admitted into veterans treatment court.”Burgess defended the legislation, saying it is the result of a compromise.“Certainly, the intent was to standardize,” he said.The specialty courts follow a non-adversarial model that stresses treatment for mental-health and substance use disorders, as well as restitution.Veterans treatment courts are open to servicemembers, current or former U.S. Department of Defense contractors, and individuals who are current or former military members of a foreign allied country who are charged or convicted of a criminal offense. Participants must be suffering from a military-related mental illness, traumatic brain injury, substance use disorder, or a psychological problem.

Commissioner Rosenworcel focuses on the spectrum challenge

first_img Tags Related LIVE FROM GSMA MOBILITY LIVE, ATLANTA: Having singled out spectrum as one of the FCC’s biggest challenges at this event two years ago, FCC commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel continues to believe the issue is critical and hinted at plans to launch a high-band spectrum incentive auction.She hailed the organisation’s incentive auction in the 600MHz band, which involves asking broadcasters to return spectrum they may not be using so the FCC can sell it to operators for use in mobile broadband.“We sweeten the pot by offering existing broadcasters a cut from the proceeds of the sale,” she said, describing the process as a “really elegant, academic concept” that the FCC is proud of.The process is ongoing and is expected to finish by early 2017.If the FCC succeeds in this auction structure in the low band spectrum, they will export it to higher band airwaves. Rosenworcel also sees it as a model international markets could adopt.As for 5G, she said millimetre wave spectrum is “the stuff that takes you to infinity and beyond,” and the US has set aside 11GHz of high band spectrum for mobile broadband, which operators are testing.Rosenworcel believes any good spectrum policy must include unlicensed spectrum, adding that with half of operator traffic offloaded onto unlicensed spectrum, it is already a big part of the US wireless ecosystem.And apart from spectrum, she said the FCC also needs to do more work on what is on the ground, with the deployment of towers and small cells a “big task as we head into 5G”.She also argued old laws and policies are an impediment to progress that need to be fixed, and that the FCC would like to run a contest to encourage towns to become the first to become 5G capable.IoTThe FCC wants to speed up work on experimental licencing policies to create sandboxes for cities to improve traffic lights, reduce parking tickets and make people healthier, said Rosenworcel.She also said one of her “irritations” is that when it comes to IoT people talk about being able to see what is inside a consumer’s fridge, but that is really not one of the best use cases. Making streets safer, cutting commuter times and making health care personal is where the focus should be.On the topic of the role the FCC could play on AT&T’s potential $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner, she said she wasn’t able to comment but that it is “clearly a transaction of enormous size and scope and it will get the highest level of scrutiny”. 5GFCCGSMA Mobility Livespectrum Mobile to power $1 trillion of N America GDP by 2020 GSMA Mobility Live – Articles Previous ArticleConnected cars on slow road to perfect business modelNext ArticleAtlanta Hawks NBA venue sees perfect connectivity as key to fan experience Author Saleha joined Mobile World Live in October 2014 as a reporter and works across all e-newsletters – creating content, writing blogs and reports as well as conducting feature interviews…More Read more AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 02 NOV 2016 Saleha Riaz HomeGSMA Mobility Live – Articles Commissioner Rosenworcel focuses on the spectrum challenge Connected cars on slow road to perfect business modellast_img read more

EC approves Tele2, Com Hem deal

first_img The European Commission (EC) approved a proposed acquisition of Com Hem by Tele2, a deal struck in January as part of the operator’s strategy to increase the services it supplies in its home market.In a statement the commission said “the transaction would raise no competition concerns as the companies’ activities and assets are largely complementary.” It added the merged entity “would continue to face significant competition from other players such as Telia and Telenor, both active on all retail telecommunications markets in Sweden, as well as Tre, active on the retail mobile telecommunications market in Sweden.”The EC added the merged entity would not have the market power to shut out or marginalise its fixed or mobile competitors by bundling fixed and mobile products.When the deal was first announced it was reported integration of the fixed, broadband and cable company would cost Tele2 around SEK600 million ($65.7 million), with most fees incurred in the first three years after completion.Following the tie-up, the combined company is estimated to achieve annual savings of SEK900 million.
