first_img Share Monday 15 November 2010 8:21 pm KCS-content whatsapp No cheap fixes for Ireland’s woes whatsapp Show Comments ▼ NO ONE wants to pay for Ireland to be bailed out. But Britain must face, along with its European partners, the danger that an Irish default presents.Britain is liable for 13.6 per cent of the €60bn (£50bn) European Financial Stabilisation Mechanism. An Irish bailout from the fund could therefore cost Britain as much as £7bn, and perhaps another £3bn through its IMF commitments. That may seem arbitrary and unfair, especially for a country sensible or fortunate enough not to have become enmeshed in the euro’s internal tensions.Yet Britain is hardly isolated from the Irish or the wider European economy. Recall how Iceland’s crisis imposed real costs on the UK, where British councils alone had £1bn invested in Icelandic banks. Today, Britain’s banks are heavily exposed to Ireland. At the end of last year, Bank of England figures show that British banks held £107bn of Irish debt. RBS revealed a £4.28bn exposure as recently as July. That is not even to consider the impact on trade with one of our nearest neighbours – Ireland is Britain’s fifth-biggest trading partner, receiving 7 per cent of our exports. Ireland’s problems are ours too.But the real problem here is the lack of a mechanism for failure. Angela Merkel’s comment yesterday that “if the euro fails, then Europe fails,” might not always sound so catastrophic to British ears, but the fallout from a European collapse could scarcely fail to injure us too. Ireland is a reminder that we lack a suitable way to manage sovereign failure. We need to find an alternative to the kind of system we have now, rife with moral hazard, where no one is prepared to accept losses are possible – without risking crippling economic contagion from the debts that moral hazard has already allowed to accumulate. A solution is proving intractable.Euro-area finance ministers are meeting in Brussels today, but yesterday, even as Portugal’s finance minister Teixera dos Santos urged them to “do what is most appropriate together for Ireland and the euro”, the Irish government called rumours of an EU bailout “fiction”.Whatever happens next, it is a tale without a happy ending, and without heroes. Ireland’s political class has landed the country in a calamitous economic situation, to which Europe and the euro also made a substantial contribution. In the short term, Angela Merkel’s comments helped to precipitate the Irish bond anxieties that brought this crisis to a head. And in the long term, it was Ireland’s membership of the euro that forced it to accept the low interest rates that inflated the bubble that has now exploded. We are all left to face the consequences. There are no easy answers here, and no cheap fixes either.

first_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The FTSE 100 is down by more than 3.5%, as I write on Monday morning. Some big fallers in the index are down by more than 10%.Markets are going into reverse again, as fears growth that the coronavirus outbreak may continue to worsen. Unsurprisingly, travel groups easyJet, TUI and British Airways owner IAG are among the worst hit stocks. Big miners are also falling, as they depend on Chinese demand for much of their profits.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…As long-term investors we try to stay focused on what might happen in five years, not five weeks. But it’s always uncomfortable to see the value of your portfolio falling. In this piece, I want to explain what I’m doing in this situation.Understanding the riskThe human impact of the coronavirus is obviously the most serious concern. But for businesses and the global economy, there’s a second risk — loss of access to goods manufactured in China.One example is FTSE 100 firm Bunzl. This little-known but highly successful group supplies a huge range of consumable products, such as cleaning products, food packaging and healthcare safety gear to business customers all over the world. This firm warned today that if coronavius continues to disrupt Chinese manufacturing, “the group may face some shortages of certain products.”Associated British Foods — which also owns Primark — also warned today its food factories in China are currently operating at reduced capacity. The company also said that although Primark has stock “for several months”, if delays to factory production continue there’s a risk of supply shortages later this year.ABF and Bunzl are well-run companies with strong finances. If they do face any disruption from coronavirus, I think it’s likely to be temporary and easily managed. But many companies may be more seriously affected.If you multiply this effect across the global economy, you can see why markets are getting jittery. Coronavirus could be the trigger for a global slowdown.What I’m doingI don’t know what’s going to happen as the year unfolds. But I’m pretty confident that over a multi-year timeframe, things will get back to normal. I suspect some businesses will also start to consider reducing their reliance on Chinese manufacturing, which could help prevent future problems.I’m not planning to sell any of the shares in my portfolio. At the moment, some of my stocks are suffering more than others. But selling them makes no sense to me, because I want to own them for years to come.By selling now, I’d miss out on dividends paid while I was out of the market. I’d also have to try and work out when to buy back into them again. Given the forward-looking nature of the stock market, I suspect I’d end up paying more to buy the shares back then I sold them for.The only thing I’ll be doing is continuing to buy more shares when I have cash available. I’m not going to try and call the bottom — it’s too difficult. Instead, I’ll just keep drip-feeding money in where I see decent value. Over time, I’m confident things will work out okay.

Since then, the two have brought the PSA into world-class venues (including the acoustically superior Ambassador Auditorium, the Los Angeles County Arboretum and the beautiful All Saints Church) and hired music luminaries such as Michael Feinstein, Marvin Hamlisch, Music Director David Lockington and Principal Guest Conductor Nicholas McGegan, and audiences have responded with historic increases in ticket sales.“Given the enormous contributions to our success that Lora has made for us, we’re delighted to elevate her to the position of CEO, following thoughtful deliberation by the Board,” said Kay Kochenderfer, President of the PSA Board of Directors. “Over the past five years, we’ve seen a 20% increase in Classics Series ticket sales, an astonishing 200% increase in POPS sales, and an 85% subscription retention rate. Everybody else wants to know how we’ve done it.”Unger’s focus now is on even greater growth.“We’re now poised to move to the next phase of this great orchestra’s future,” Unger said, “which is fully realizing our potential in this community, both as an important arts pillar and a force in the community. I cannot imagine a more ideal time to assume this new role with the Pasadena Symphony and POPS. I’m grateful to the PSA Board of Directors for their trust and encouragement, and am ready to even more fully engage with the culturally vibrant community of Pasadena.”PSA’s GRAMMY-nominated Music Director David Lockington said he is “thrilled for Paul and absolutely delighted that Lora will be assuming the role of CEO of the Pasadena Symphony Association.” Lockington pointed out that he has “worked with Lora for over four years. She is visionary, smart and an astute strategist. Her style is a stimulating blend of seriousness and humor which makes for a creative working environment.”Unger, who is also a trained violist, holds a BA in Music with a Minor in Business Administration from the University of Louisville, and received her MA in Arts Administration from the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and Cincinnati College of Business Administration. Previously she has worked with the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, as well as the Cincinnati, Modesto, and Jacksonville Symphony Orchestras in public relations, marketing and artistic operations. She was a League of American Orchestras’ Orchestra Management Fellow with residencies at the Aspen Music Festival, New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and San Francisco Symphony. She is a member of the Association of California Symphony Orchestras and a presenter at their conferences.The Board of Directors of the Symphony expresses their great pleasure at Unger’s acceptance of the CEO position and their faith in her ability to lead the Association with vision, imagination and discipline.The Board wishes to acknowledge the remarkable accomplishments of Zdunek in leading the Symphony onto the path of success and hopes for his continued success in his new opportunity.About the Pasadena Symphony AssociationRecent Acclaim for the Pasadena Symphony and POPS“The Pasadena Symphony signals a new direction…teeming with vitality…dripping with opulent, sexy emotion.” Los Angeles Times.“…full of pulsating energy from first note to last… the strings were lushly resonant, the wind principals were at the top of their games, and the brass rang out with gleaming vigor.” –Pasadena Star News.Formed in 1928, the Pasadena Symphony and POPS is an ensemble of Hollywood’s most talented, sought after musicians. With extensive credits in the film, television, recording and orchestral industry, the artists of Pasadena Symphony and POPS are the most heard in the world.The Pasadena Symphony and POPS performs in two of the most extraordinary venues in the United States: Ambassador Auditorium, known as the Carnegie Hall of the West, and the luxuriant Los Angeles Arboretum & Botanic Garden. Internationally recognized, Grammy-nominated conductor, David Lockington, serves as the Pasadena Symphony Association’s Music Director, with performance-practice specialist Nicholas McGegan serving as Principal Guest Conductor. The multi-platinum-selling, two-time Emmy and five-time Grammy Award-nominated entertainer dubbed “The Ambassador of the Great American Songbook,” Michael Feinstein, is the Principal Pops Conductor, who succeeded Marvin Hamlisch in the newly created Marvin Hamlisch Chair.A hallmark of its robust education programs, the Pasadena Symphony Association has served the youth of the region for over five decades through the Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestras (PYSO) comprised of five performing ensembles, with over 250 gifted 4th-12th grade students from more than 50 schools all over the Southern California region.

first_imgBE particularly careful when withdrawing cash from ATMs.That’s the message from Henry Street Garda Station, after a female had her money grabbed from her at the ATM machine outside the Bank of Ireland, Upper William Street, last Friday.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The lady had just withdrawn a sum of money from the machine when a hand came in around her and snatched it as it was being dispensed from the ATM.The hand was from another female, who is described as in her early 20s, with black curly shoulder length hair, about 5’6” in height and wearing a hoodie and tracksuit bottoms.Gardai warn those making withdrawals to be aware of what is going on around them.“Have a look over your shoulder before the money comes out, and even before the transaction takes place. Be sure nobody is hanging around watching your movements. If someone is up to no good, then go to another machine to get your cash. If you notice anything suspicious, contact the gardai”.

Email EMPOWER, funded by the Higher Education Authority (HEA), is designed to support young innovators and entrepreneurs.While this year’s programme took place online, it didn’t lessen its impact with one of the facilitators, Allen Wixted, founder and CEO of NoPlaceLike, and winner of the Limerick Best Young Entrepreneur in 2019, commenting, “Even in this virtual environment we managed to capture this high level of energy where everyone was inspired to work on something that could have a real impact.”Now in its fourth year, almost forty students from Limerick, Clare, Cork, Tipperary, Laois and Offaly participated in this year’s event.Over four days entrepreneurs and innovators including Allen Wixted of NoPlaceLike, Kelly O’Brien of CDK, Emily Duffy inventor of the Duffily Bag, Barry Fitzgerald of BWScience, Stephen McGarvey from FoodConnect and Mark Culleton of iDyslexic, shared their entrepreneurial journeys with the students, as well as supporting them throughout the week as they worked on some of the most pressing challenges society is facing today, such as those climate change, mental health and the impact that isolation and COVID has had on society.According to Patricia O’Sullivan, Enterprise and Community Engagement Manager at MIC, “We need our future population to be able to apply skills within and across disciplines and in real life situations.“Therefore, it is of critical importance that both formal and informal educational experience at all levels are innovative, relevant and prepare students with real world skills that are transferrable to the workplace. Empower was a fantastic experience for all involved.”One of the students who participated in the programme said, “Empower has helped me so much in terms of improving my teamwork, creativity and presentation skills, which will be really beneficial for my project in the BT Young Scientist competition this year.”During the four-day programme, students formed teams of six to compete for the titles of ‘Overall Winner’, ‘Best Innovation’ and ‘Most Creative Pitch’.Lucy Flaherty from Desmond College in Co. Limerick; Ali Ryan from John the Baptist Community School, Co. Limerick; Ava Carroll from Laurel Hill Coláiste FCJ, Limerick city; Claire Hendy from Sacred Heart School in Tullamore, Co Offaly; and Muireann Duffy from Loreto Clonmel in Co. Tipperary scooped the title of ‘Overall Winner’.Blending technology, science and an understanding of eating disorders, they created a device called ‘Bounce Back’, an AI driven wearable device designed to help tackle the challenges vulnerable people face during times of stress when the risk of relapse can occur.The title of ‘Best Innovation’ was awarded to Aisling Cahill and Claudia Lynch from Laurel Hill Coláiste FCJ, Limerick city; Alexandr Arbuzov from Coláiste Mhichíl (CBS), Limerick city; Ayushi Mahajan from Christ King Girls’ Secondary School in Cork city; and Julia Wiechcinska and Rebecca Inayat from Coláiste Muire in Ennis, Co. Clare.Their innovation was based around taking UV and UV-C sterilization, a technology currently only accessible in industry and scaling it down so that we can all use it to sterilize our environments each day.The team designed a key ring version of the tool which would beam sterilising ultraviolet light (specifically the UV-C wavelengths) on a surface destroying all viruses and bacteria on it.Their device was designed to make sure this is safe also for the user. This could be used in school or any environment to sterilize door handles, tables and staircase banisters for example helping to reduce the spread of COVID19.Aisling Clohessy from Coláiste Muire in Ennis, Co. Clare; Anna Graham, Emma Dineen and Eva Mullen from Laurel Hill Coláiste FCJ, Limerick city; and Tommy Rice from Villers School in Limerick city took the title for ‘Most Creative Pitch’.They developed the concept for an app titled ‘Well Nest’, which aims to address the issues of anxiety and isolation amongst young people. Through embracing nature, users of the app can grow their own personal wellness tree, as well as access support tools and a like-minded community of other young people.Gillian Barry, Head of Innovation and Enterprise at LIT, said, “Most startups fail because they do not meet a market need. We believe that quality of the solution you generate is in direct proportion to your ability to identify the problem you hope to solve. This is key to impactful innovation and was a core focus during the week.”Adding “It was fantastic to see teams, who for the most part did not know each other beforehand, forming and bonding throughout the week with many of them planning to continue to develop their ideas together.“Their enquiring minds and ability to question the norm was inspiring and we were delighted to see so many strong ideas forming during the week.” Roisin Upton excited by “hockey talent coming through” in Limericklast_img read more

Odessa Day Nursery is one of the agencies helped by the United Way. Home Local News United Way raising funds for local agencies Facebook WhatsApp Less money being raised by United Way means funding cuts for their partner agencies. Herrick said during the 2015-2016 fundraising they had to cut the amount of money they could provide to their agencies by 30 percent, which he said reduces the amount of aid they can give to the community.A variety of agencies receive funding from United Way of Odessa, including the Permian Basin Mission Center, the Salvation Army, Meals on Wheels, and Odessa Day Nursery which helps low-income families by providing them with scholarships for their children. But without the funding from United Way, Odessa Day Nursery Director Dian Gouard said they wouldn’t be able to provide those scholarships.“We try to keep our fees at a low cost for them, and that way, the money United Way gives us covers their tuition,” Gouard said.The money from United Way also helps Odessa Day Nursery to buy things like art supplies and puzzles for the children they take care of.Herrick added that that United Way not only raises the money for these agencies, they also vet the agencies. Every year, panelists made up of community volunteers and members of United Way’s board of directors visit the agencies to look at their budgets, their overhead, and determine if they are meeting their goals of how many people they are helping in the community.Every year, any agency can apply, and partner agencies have to reapply, for United Way funding. Herrick said there are three qualifications to be able to apply: The agency has to be a 501(c) nonprofit, they need to have an annual audit, and they need to have a localized board for governance and oversight.Despite lower amounts of funds raised in previous years, Herrick said they expect to have a better fundraising campaign at least by next year.“In nonprofit business, you always kind of lag a year behind,” he said. “Next year, chances are we’ll have a great campaign, because people will have a year-and-a-half, two years of a good economy.”Herrick also acknowledged that as the economy recovers, there will still be population segments that need help, and will continue to need help.Anyone who wishes to donate to United Way of Odessa can do so by visiting unitedwayofodessa.org, or they can donate over the phone by calling their office at 432-332-0941. United Way will be accepting donations until Feb. 15.“We just want to thank the community of Odessa for the generosity,” Herrick said. “And if they could look within their hearts to help us get from $1.8 million to $2 million, we would certainly appreciate it.” Twitter Facebook 1 of 5 ECISD undergoing ‘equity audit’ 2-year-old Arianna Renteria paints red hearts on her box.

The Pediatrics professor was subsequently slapped with charge under stringent National Security Act, 1980 for “disturbing public order in the city and creating an atmosphere of fear and insecurity within the citizens of Aligarh”. A habeas corpus petition moved by Khan’s mother, Nuzhat Perween, was first listed before the Allahabad High Court on June 1, 2020 after the Supreme Court refused to intervene in the matter, stating that High Court is a more “appropriate forum”. On September 1, 2020, the High Court allowed the habeas petition with directions to effect immediate release of Dr Khan.On a perusal of the record maintained under NSA, the Allahabad High Court concluded that there were no grounds to either detain Khan, let alone to extend such detention twice, as a complete reading of his speech indicated that he ‘deprecated any kind of violence’.The Court noted that the speech actually gave a “call for national integrity and unity”. The judgment completely reproduced the speech given by Khan, which was termed “provocative” by the District Magistrate.”The speaker was certainly opposing the policies of the government and while doing so certain illustration are given by him, but that no where reflects the eventualities demanding detention. A complete reading of the speech primafacie does not disclose any effort to promote hatred or violence. It also no where threatens peace and tranquility of the city of Aligarh. The address gives a call for national integrity and unity among the citizens. The speech also deprecates any kind of violence. It appears that the District Magistrate had selective reading and selective mention for few phrases from the speech ignoring its true intent,” the Bench said in its strongly worded Judgment.The judgment delivered by a bench of Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Saumitra Dayal Singh held that the speech is not such that a reasonable man could have arrive at a conclusion as the inference drawn by the District Magistrate, Aligarh, who passed the detention order against Dr. Khan in February this year.Accordingly, it has revoked the NSA charges against Dr. Khan; the order of detention dated 13th February, 2020 passed by District Magistrate, Aligarh under the NSA Act and confirmed by the State of Uttar Pradesh has been set aside. The extension of the period of detention of detenue Dr. Kafeel Khan is also declared illegal.The HC observed that State failed to discharge its burden to establish that KafeelKhan’s December speech had “such a deleterious effect on the public order in district-Aligarh as had continued to exist up to 13.02.2020 necessitating preventive detention of the detenue”.Following the High Court order, Dr. Khan was released from Mathura jail on September 2, amid much fanfare.Pictures of Dr. Kafeel Khan after his release from Mathura jail following the Allahabad HC order quashing his detention under National Security Act. @Saurabhsherry#drkafeelkhan #kafeel_khan https://t.co/AFtJxhHeHd pic.twitter.com/IzJ71ZEmiz— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) September 1, 2020 Khan came in news first in August 2017, during the tragedy in Baba Raghav Das(BRD) Medical College Hospital, Gorakhpur, regarding the death of nearly 60 infants due to lack of oxygen supply. He was initially reported to have acted as a saviour by promptly acting to arrange emergency oxygen supply by paying out of his pocket. Despite being hailed as a hero for arranging cylinders as children gasped for breath, he was named in an FIR registered under Sections 409 (criminal breach of trust by public servant, or by banker, merchant or agent), 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide) and 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code. It was alleged that he was negligent in his duties, which resulted in a shortage of medical oxygen. He was arrested in September 2017, and was released only in April 2018 when the High Court allowed his bail application after observing that there existed no material on record to establish charges of medical negligence against Dr. Khan individually. He was also suspended from service alleging dereliction of duty. A report of the departmental enquiry absolved him of charges in September 2019.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
