Twitter Linkedin Fianna Fáil TD Niall Collins appointed as Minister of State €1.5 million boost for five County Limerick towns from Rural Regeneration and Development Fund NewsLocal NewsCouncil told to park plans to remove Abbeyfeale car spacesBy Alan Jacques – January 8, 2015 832 TAGSAbbeyfealeCllr Francis FoleyCllr John SheahanCllr Liam GalvinFianna FáilFine GaellimerickLimerick City and County CouncilMunicipal District of Newcastle West Decision to enter Phase 4 of reopening Ireland deferred to August 10 by Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up PROPOSED plans by the Council to remove 70 metres of on street car parking in Abbeyfeale have been described as “excessive” and “crazy” by councillors in the municipal district of Newcastle West.The proposal would involve the removal of the car parking spaces on the southern side of Main Street, opposite the junction with Colbert Terrace.Speaking at this Wednesday’s district meeting, Fine Gael councillor Liam Galvin said that it was imperative that the planning application went through at the site of the former hardware store, which has been derelict for ten years.Cllr Galvin called for an urgent meeting to be arranged on site for councillors and members of the local community with senior executive engineer Robert Gallagher.“I couldn’t support plans to remove 70 metres of parking space. This is the busiest section of the town and small businesses would suffer,” the Abbeyfeale councillor warned.“I don’t see why this planning application couldn’t go ahead without all these spaces being removed,” he said.Fianna Fail councillor Francis Foley fully agreed with Cllr Galvin and said the Council needed to use common sense.“This is a crazy situation. You will end up taking 70 metres now and another 70 metres later on as part of the overall traffic management plan for Abbeyfeale. There are other small businesses adjacent to this site and they need parking for their survival,” said Cllr Foley.Fine Gael councillor John Sheahan suggested that the proposal posed bigger questions about the overall management of Abbeyfeale. Cllr Sheahan also said that some of the money from the €32 million loan to the local authority, which was approved by councillors last October to kickstart the 2030 development, should be used for the betterment of county towns.Sinn Fein councillor Seamus Browne also described the plans to remove 70 metres of car parking space from Abbeyfeale’s main street as “excessive”.“It is important for the town that this application goes forward, but 70 metres is a bit much when there is already an entrance into site with its own parking spaces. We need to look into the future and look at how this will effect other businesses in the area,” said Cllr Browne.

Previous Article Next Article The search is on to find the UK’s top training team. Have you got what it takes to measure up?For the last year, Training magazine and The Industrial Society, partners in the TD2000 campaign, have been working to create an understanding of how the status of training and development can be raised in they eyes of organisations and the wider business world.Now the time has come to find the T&D team which has achieved most success in this area, as Will Hutton, chief executive of The Industrial Society, explains.“Some organisations have clearly achieved a tremendous amount – they have influence and respect at the most senior levels, they know exactly what the real organisational issues are and they can demonstrate the value they add to their organisation. We think it’s time to recognise these high-flying teams and acknowledge their successes.”The TD2000 Award will do just that. The award will be open to any training and development team in the UK – from the corporate or not-for profit sector, internal or outsourced.The task of identifying the top team will fall to two judges – Nigel Crouch of the DTI’s Innovation Unit and well-known evaluation expert Paul Kearns.Kearns says he is excited about the prospect. “Awards such as those run by IiP and the National Training Awards have made their own contributions to good practice but this award is about raising the bar. It represents a genuine challenge for the best training functions in the UK. It is a unique opportunity to recognise those proactive, business-focused professionals who have consciously shifted their role from training provider to business partner.”He adds, “As a judge I see my role as ensuring this award really means something; not only to the winner but as a benchmark for the rest of the profession.”The judges will be looking for teams that can demonstrate excellence in at least two out of three key areas:• Integration with the organisation: areas such as partnership with line managers, performance consultancy, helping people apply their learning back in the workplace• Top table influence: relationships with the senior management, boards and directors, involvement in decision-making and the overall business planning process.• Evaluation: the ability to demonstrate improved performance resulting from training and development; success in measuring the value and effectiveness of the training and development activitiesEntrants only need to write up to 300 words on each of the areas in order to enter. Those wishing to do so can also supply further evidence to support their entry.The deadline for entries is 3 April 2000. After examining the entries, judges Nigel Crouch and Paul Kearns will draw up a shortlist of the three most promising ones. They will visit each of the short-listed teams during May. The award will be presented on 4 July at a special TD2000 event to be held at the NEC in Birmingham.Andrew Rogers, editor of Training, says the award is likely to generate a lot of publicity for the successful team. “The award is also likely to unleash a wealth of successful practices which aren’t widely known of,” he adds.The award is sponsored by Raytheon Training which specialises in the development, implementation and management of training systems and programmes designed to help organisations achieve their business goals.Says Michael Nehrmann, director of marketing and sales, Europe, “We fully endorse the aims and objectives of this key initiative in recognising the importance of training and development to global business success. We believe that an organisation’s training must be inseparably linked to its business goals and fully integrated within the overall business strategy. Only in this way can the value of training and development be fully realised. As industry professionals we must also be able to clearly demonstrate the return on any particular training investment made.”Nehrmann believes that in the information age, the ability to learn fast provides an organisation’s decisive competitive advantage. “However, learning must also be targeted and this can only occur through an integrated systems approach to training and development.”Andrew Rogers says the TD2000 Award has already attracted interest from training and development professionals who have heard about it through the grapvine.“The fact that this award is so focussed on the way training is integrated into the fabric of the organisation really seems to appeal to people,” he says.• For more information, see page 20.About TD2000• The aim of the TD2000 campaign is to raise the status of training and development in the eyes of organisational leaders. Run jointly be The Industrial Society and Training magazine, TD2000 aims to explore the issues which underlie the widespread feelings that T&D lies outside the heart of many organisations. Its aim is to create an agenda for the industry to work towards in the 21st century.Now Start planning your entry3 April 2000 Closing date for entriesMay 2000 Judges visit short-listed teams4 July 2000 Winner announcedFor more information about the TD2000 Award and how to enter, see page 20 or visit www.indsoc.co.uk/td2000 Related posts:No related photos.

Jun 13, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) promised today to give 50 million doses of its H5N1 “prepandemic” influenza vaccine to the World Health Organization (WHO) for distribution to poor countries.The vaccine will be delivered over 3 years and be enough to vaccinate 25 million people at two doses each, the United Kingdom–based drug company said in a news release.The announcement marks the first tangible step toward the creation of a world stockpile of H5N1 vaccines, a goal endorsed by WHO member countries at the World Health Assembly in May.Following GSK’s announcement today, US-based Baxter International and the French vaccine maker Sanofi Pasteur both announced their intention to donate H5N1 vaccines to the WHO stockpile, but neither company specified how many doses it would contribute.The idea of a global stockpile emerged after complaints by Indonesia and other developing countries about lack of access to commercial H5N1 vaccines. Indonesia, the country hit hardest by H5N1, withheld samples of the virus from the WHO from last December until May on grounds that drug companies use the samples to make vaccines priced out of Indonesia’s reach.The WHO welcomed GSK’s announcement today. “This is another significant step towards creating a global resource to help the world and especially to help develping countries in case of a major outbreak of H5N1 avian influenza,” WHO Director-General Margaret Chan said in a news release.The WHO said it needs to do “detailed operational planning for the stockpile, including how and under which conditions it will be deployed, as well as regulatory aspects of the vaccine.”After an international meeting of vaccine producers and government officials in late April, the WHO said it appeared that a global H5N1 vaccine stockpile might be feasible. Later, at the WHO’s annual meeting in May, members passed a resolution calling for the creation of a stockpile of vaccines for H5N1 and other viruses of pandemic potential. The resolution also called on the agency to set up mechanisms for the “fair and equitable distribution” of pandemic flu vaccines at “affordable prices.”Dr. John Oxford, a virologist at London’s Queen Mary School of Medicine, called GSK’s announcement “excellent news,” according to the Associated Press. “It’s just what we need to reassure countries like Indonesia that they will get something in return from the viruses they provide, which will form the basis of these vaccines,” he said.GSK’s vaccine includes a proprietary adjuvant (immune-stimulating chemical) and in clinical trials has induced a strong immune response at low doses, according to previous company announcements. Last July the company said 80% of volunteers showed a good immune response after receiving two 3.8-microgram doses. A typical dose of seasonal flu vaccine contains 15 micrograms of antigen for each of three flu strains.In March GSK said its vaccine might protect people against more than one strain of H5N1. The vaccine is based on a 2004 strain from Vietnam, but in a clinical trial it elicited an immune response (neutralizing antibodies) to an H5N1 strain from Indonesia. However, the company has not yet published a detailed report of its clinical trial results.The WHO noted that three other vaccine producers—Baxter, Sanofi Pasteur, and Omnivest of Hungary—also have expressed a willingness to provide some doses of H5N1 vaccine to the global stockpile.Baxter’s announcement today said the company intends to provide a “multiyear donation” of its candidate pandemic flu vaccine to the WHO. Sanofi Pasteur, meanwhile, said it was ready to give a “significant number of doses” of H5N1 vaccine, some of which could be supplied immediately in bulk form.GSK promised that, in addition to its donation, it would provide some of its H5N1 vaccine to the WHO at “preferential” prices for use by countries eligible for assistance from GAVI (the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization), a public-private program that provides vaccines for children in poor countries.The company noted that a precisely matched vaccine won’t become available until 4 to 6 months after a pandemic strain emerges. Experts hope that if the next pandemic strain is an H5N1 variant, existing H5N1 vaccines will provide some protection, though supplies are likely to be very short.See also:Jun 13 WHO statementMay 23 CIDRAP News story “WHO adopts resolution on flu virus sharing”Apr 26 CIDRAP News story “WHO: Global H5N1 vaccine stockpile may be feasible”Mar 6 CIDRAP News story “Glaxo H5N1 vaccine may work against multiple strains”

Despite a recently issued regulation banning single-use plastic bags, vendors in several markets in Jakarta are still left with lingering questions about their business and services to customers as they claim alternatives have yet to be provided by the city administration.Predi, 40, a plastic vendor at Cipete Market in South Jakarta, tends a kiosk selling various plastic products such as plastic cups, kresek (single-use plastic bags) and containers. He said that he was aware of the regulation and was worried about how it would impact his small business.“I know about the rule since the head of the market has informed all vendors here. But what should I do with all of the plastics in my kiosk?,” Predi said on a recent Tuesday.He said he was quite wary the new regulation might cause his small business to shut down.

Wood hasn’t made a relief appearance since June 2014, though he began his major-league career as a reliever with the Braves in 2013.Kershaw has made only two starts in his career on short rest: Game 4 of last year’s Division Series in St. Louis and Game 4 of the 2013 Division Series at home against the Atlanta Braves. He threw six innings each time, affirming his durability, and allowed a total of three earned runs.All three runs scored on Kershaw’s final pitch in St. Louis last year on a Matt Adams home run. The Dodgers lost the game, 3-2, and the series.Apparently that will not deter the Dodgers from using Kershaw on short rest again this year. Wood’s attitude toward the matter was not unique.“This is a time of no egos and try to win a game,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “This is not ‘I want to be a third starter or second starter.’ Maybe that’s spring training, parts of the year. … This is a time of no egos, all about one thing, that’s walking out of there with a ‘W’ on Friday night. Then you go to the next game. It can’t be about ‘Who’s the guy?’ ‘Who’s the star?’ Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “I haven’t had any conversation with a guy that’s been any kind of trouble about what their role is.”Roster decisionsMattingly and his staff revealed the Dodgers’ 25-man roster to the players but not reporters. Still, it wasn’t too hard to piece it all together at Wednesday’s practice.Scott Van Slyke, who missed the final five games of the regular season because of a hand injury that never fully healed, will be out. He wasn’t among the 17 position players who hit on the field or took part in defensive drills Wednesday. All indications are that Yasiel Puig, Joc Pederson, Andre Ethier, Kiké Hernandez and Carl Crawford will be the Dodgers’ outfielders.One of the few lingering decisions would appear to involve Justin Ruggiano, who practiced with the first group of outfielders and hit in the penultimate batting practice group with Puig, Pederson and catcher Yasmani Grandal — all of whom are expected to make the roster.Ruggiano, however, would not say Wednesday whether he’s in or out.If Ruggiano is on the roster, the Dodgers figure to bring 11 pitchers. If he is not, the Dodgers will bring 12 pitchers. Asked how many pitchers would be on the roster, Mattingly said “it’s normal,” though that’s of little help. The Dodgers had 12 pitchers on their roster for last year’s NLDS, and 11 throughout the 2013 postseason.A right-handed hitter, Ruggiano batted .291 in 21 games after the Dodgers acquired him from the Seattle Mariners in August. He did the entirety of his damage against left-handed pitchers, against whom he hit .301 compared to .143 against right-handers. The Mets have an entirely right-handed rotation, so Ruggiano would be relegated to the bench if he is on the roster.Taxi squadThird baseman Alex Guerrero, outfielder Chris Heisey and catcher Austin Barnes are still with the team but aren’t expected to make the NLDS roster. So too are a handful of relief pitchers. Nine — Kenley Jansen, J.P. Howell, Chris Hatcher, Luis Avilan, Pedro Baez, Yimi Garcia, Joel Peralta, Juan Nicasio and Carlos Frias — threw simulated innings against live hitters the last two days. Only seven or eight will be on the roster.One reliever who will not pitch for the Dodgers in the playoffs: Jim Johnson, who was acquired from Atlanta along with Avilan and Wood in July. He was sent home rather than to the Dodgers’ instructional league facility in Glendale, Arizona.“We didn’t feel like Camelback Ranch was the place for him,” Mattingly said. “As a veteran, he just had a baby, we didn’t see him as the next guy up if somebody would get hurt. We didn’t feel it was fair to ask him to go to Camelback.”AlsoGates will open three hours before the first pitch of Games 1 and 2, at 3:45 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. Saturday. Fans are encouraged to arrive as soon as possible to beat traffic. Game 2 begins at the same time as the USA-Mexico soccer match at the Rose Bowl. … Third baseman Justin Turner also took ground balls at first base, while second baseman Chase Utley also took grounders at third base during drills. … The Mets aren’t likely to announce their 25-man roster until they can determine the health of pitcher Steven Matz, who is a candidate to start Game 4. Matz, who’s recovering from tightness in his left (throwing) shoulder, told reporters in New York that he felt better after throwing a bullpen session at Citi Field. The Dodgers will have four starting pitchers on their roster in the National League Division Series, but in all likelihood only three of them will start.Alex Wood said Wednesday that he’s been told to prepare for a bullpen role in Games 1, 2 and 3 against the Mets, which points to Clayton Kershaw starting an if-necessary Game 4 in New York on three days’ rest Tuesday.That’s fine with Wood, who started 32 games this season — 12 after arriving in a deadline deal with the Atlanta Braves.“I’ll have my role and hopefully I’ll get a chance to make as big of an impact as I can,” he said.
7 May 2015 Close call for the defending champion Julie Brown, the defending English senior women’s champion, held on to her hopes of a title double by the skin of her teeth today.The number one seed eased through her first round match at Woodhall Spa, but she faced a battle royal in the quarter-finals before finally winning through on the 19th.Her opponent, Jackie Foster of Hertfordshire, was five up after 12 and Brown had to stage a remarkable fightback to secure her place in the semi-finals.“I just called on all my knowledge and just stuck in there,” said Brown, who was a winner on the Ladies European Tour before reverting to amateur status (Image © Leaderboard Photography).“I just kept plodding along and thought that if I kept hitting fairways and greens I might put some pressure on.”She won the 13th and 14th, halved the 15th, and then won the next three holes to get the match back to all square on the last. A textbook par on the 19th brought her back from the brink and into the semi-final, where she will meet Jo Galway of Sussex.Brown, from Staffordshire, is the only senior international left in the field after a day of surprises which saw top players take a tumble.Galway played her part. She beat former champion Janet Melville this morning and in the afternoon defeated Joan Pullen, a fellow Sussex player. Pullen was the giant-killer of the first round, beating British senior champion Cath Rawthore 3/2.Galway, a former Sussex champion who is playing this event for only the second time, said: “Tomorrow I shall go out and play my golf, just get on with it – and hope I can do the same as today!”Leicestershire’s Helen Lowe notched up two impressive wins today. She beat former champion Caroline Berry of Cheshire in the first round and then went past Lulu Housman, a senior international from Middlesex.Derbyshire’s Lindsey Shaw, the number two seed, edged through her morning match against Karen Jobling of Yorkshire, winning with a birdie on the 18th. But she got the measure of the greens in the afternoon and defeated yet another international, Chris Quinn of Hampshire.Shaw remarked: “Chris is a very good player, but I was just playing well today. I was three up at the turn and I kept my nose ahead. I’m absolutely delighted and tomorrow I’m just going to keep on trucking!”The semi-finals are: Julie Brown (Trentham) v Jo Galway (Pycombe); Lindsey Shaw (Chevin) v Helen Lowe (Scraptoft)Please click here for full scores from the championship match play and the second flight
