New Irish citizens prepare for election day in Limerick

Despite the size of this population, political parties continue to disregard immigration and migrant related issues in their manifestos.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “There has been a significant increase in awareness of refugee protection concerns and the scandal of Direct Provision among the general public too, and we hope that the next Government will take swift and effective action on these areas as a matter of priority.”Voter participation among new communities and other marginalised groups can often be very low, said Ms Roche. In an attempt to boost participation, Doras Luimní have been implementing a project that aims to increase voter registration and participation through targeted outreach and voting information sessions.“While many new citizens living in Limerick are well aware of the process, there are a growing number of new eligible electors that benefit from tailored information and assistance. Ireland has a complicated and unique election process, not helped by the usage of Irish language terminology in politics. For people with limited social networks and non-native English speakers, the process of registration and the election system itself can be challenging.”Over 300 people have registered to vote with Doras Luimní’s assistance over the past few months and are looking forward to participating in the election this Friday, February 26.

Justice SJ Kathawalla heard the writ petition filed by Samaj Samata Kamgaar Sangh, a union representing the 6277 kamgaars working for NMMC seeking directions to the civic body to ensure basic protective gear like masks etc. for these workers who fight the pandemic of Covid-19 on the frontlines everyday. Petitioners alleged that apart from “providing low quality face masks and hand gloves on one occasion”, the Corporation has not provided any protective gear to the workers. The petitioners also sought directions to NMMC to grant daily allowance of Rs.300 as per its own notification dated April 7, 2020, to the kamgaars. Although, NMMC’s lawyer Sandeep Marne submitted that the Members of the petitioner Union are contract workers, the petitioner’s counsel Bhavesh Parmar refuted the said stand taken by the Corporation and pointed out that there is a dispute pending in this regard before the Industrial Tribunal. According to the Petitioner Sangh / Union, out of 6277 kamgaars, 3261 are involved in Solid Waste Management, including day-to-day road cleaning and transportation of garbage. About 693 Kamgaars are employed in the health department, which includes duties at four Corporation Hospitals and 23 urban health posts across Navi Mumbai. About 65 Kamgaars are employed on cemetery cleaning duty. Commissioner of NMMC issued the circular dated April 7 wherein he observed that despite the workers of the Corporation facing difficulties in reaching their workplace and in procuring food/meal services due to the lockdown, the workers are “fulfilling their responsibilities by risking their lives”. The circular also mandates a daily allowance of Rs.300 to working officers and working staff of NMMC. Court enquired from NMMC’s Counsel as to why the Corporation is not considering extension of the same benefit to Kamgaars who are involved in Covid-19 related duties assigned by the Corporation. In response, Advocate Marne stated that since the members of the petitioner Union i.e. the Kamgaars are employed by the contractors to carry out the work of the Corporation under contracts executed by and between such contractors and the Corporation, the Kamgaars are not entitled to claim parity and receive the said allowance which the Corporation has agreed to pay to its officers and its workers, including the workers who are directly appointed by the Corporation on contract basis. Justice Kathawalla disagreed with NMMC’s stand- “In my view, the above stand of the Corporation is unfair, especially under the present circumstances. Some of the contract workers are admittedly carrying out the Covid-19 related duties, assigned by the Corporation through the contractors. It cannot be disputed that the Kamgaars too, who are involved in Covid-19 related duties assigned by the Corporation through the contractors, are facing the very same difficulties as those faced by the officers and the workers of the Corporation, including the workers who are directly appointed by the Corporation on contract basis, and the Kamgaars are also “fulfilling their responsibilities by risking their lives”. Thus, the Court concluded that the risk taken by Kamgaars in carrying out Covid-19 related duties for the Corporation cannot be differentiated/distinguished on their employment being directly with the Corporation or through the contractors. Court said- “In so distinguishing between its own employees and the Kamgaars, the Corporation is seen to be making a tacit statement, that the Kamgaars though discharging the Covid related duties as the Corporation’s own employees, are either not ‘risking their lives’, or despite doing so, need to be paid differently only due to their employer being the contractor and not the Corporation. To say the least, this would be an extremely unfair and unjust yardstick to use, to value human lives differently.” Thereafter, NMMC informed the Court that all Kamgaars are not involved in Covid-19 related duties, thus if allowance is to be paid to the contract workers, the Corporation may be allowed to certify the exact contract workers who are involved in Covid-19 related duties, and payment of special allowance be restricted only to such certified contract workers, on the basis of their attendance. Court directed the Corporation to certify the names of the Kamgaars involved in Covid-19 related duties and forward a list of the same to the Advocate for the petitioner Union within a period of one week. Also, NMMC was directed to pay an allowance of Rs.300 per day just like other employees of the Corporation under its Circular dated April 7, on the basis of attendance. Finally, the petitioners referred to the Press Conference conducted by the Finance Minister of India, Nirmala Sitaraman on March 26, wherein she had announced a Special Insurance Scheme that would cover the Kamgaar working as Safai Karmacharis, ward boys, nurses, ASHA workers, paramedics etc. The Corporation has not accepted that the said ccheme is also applicable to the workers of the petitioner Union. Additional Solicitor General of India Anil Singh submitted on behalf of the Union of India that once the said Corporation certified the names of the workers in health care facilities and involved in direct contact and care of Covid-19 patients, irrespective of whether they are direct employees of the Corporation or contract workers, shall be covered under the Special Insurance Scheme. NMMC accepted that the insurance claims would be certified by the Corporation in respect of all contractual workers working in direct contact or care of Covid-19 patients. This case will now come up for hearing on June 12.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

But every now and then, and from each of them, a wistful glance is cast in the direction of the empty chair. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Just what it was about Bill Rice Sr. that drew people to him, William Davis said, he’s not sure. But he is sure that it was no one thing.“Bill was a man with many interests,” Davis said. “He was knowledgeable about so many things – Alabama football, politics, Alabama football, history, Alabama football …”It was the common interest in Alabama football that brought the men together in 1981. Over the years, the group has picked up members and lost members. But they meet, year round every Friday, now at Julia’s, for lunch.“Every now and then, Doug Hawkins comes around to harass us, especially not that Auburn is ‘finally’ winning a few games,” Calhoun said, laughing.

On Oct. 12, 2010, the chair no longer had an occupant.“I never thought about it until Bill died, but I had lunch with him every Friday for almost 30 years,” said Dickie Calhoun, a member of the Alabama Friday Lunch Crowd. “That’s a thousand meals we shared. Other than your wife, there’s probably not a single person that you sit down and have a face-to-face talk with over lunch a thousand times.”For Calhoun and all the others who shared Friday lunches with Rice, those days are cherished memories.

He was a starter on Bryant’s first national championship team in 1961.“Bill played end and tackle for Alabama and caught quite a few passes as a tackle-eligible,” said Davis.Prior to Bryant’s arrival at the Capstone, J.B. “Ears” Whitworth had posted dismal records including an 0 and 10 record and a 2-7-1 record the year before the Bear arrived.“Bill helped bring prominence back to Alabama football. That team laid the foundation for what was to come,” Davis said.Faulk said one of his favorite Alabama Rice stores, that he can tell, is about Rice’s inability to get up and get to an 8 a.m. class.“Bill said that Coach Bryant called him into his office and told him that he understood that he was missing his early morning class,” Faulk said. “Coach Bryant told him to meet him the next morning at 4:30 in the office and to be wearing a coat and tie. Bill said Coach Bryant had him study in his office until it was time to go to his 8 o’clock class.“After about a week or more of that, Coach Bryant asked Bill if he thought he could make it to his 8 o’clock class. Bill said, ‘Yes, sir.’”Mack Hixon and Rice were freshmen at Alabama together and pledged the same fraternity.“It was a real honor for me to know Bill because everybody looked up to the football players,” he said.But, Hixon also knew Rice as a fun-loving college boy who joined him on panty raids.Back then, panty raids were nothing like climbing a fire escape and going to get them, Hixon said.“About a hundred of us would stand under the dorm windows on sorority row and, sometimes a girl or two would throw down some ‘lingerie.’” Hixon said laughing. “Those were fun, special times.”For the men who shared lunch, laughter and a few heated discussions with Rice, those were also very special times.“We all respected Bill because he knew a lot about a lot of things,” Calhoun said. “Back during the last governor’s race, Bill said he was going to support Robert Bentley, who by all accounts wasn’t qualified to be governor. I told him that Bentley didn’t know anything about politics. That he couldn’t win. But Bill said, ‘Yes, he could.’ And he did.”Jim Colley said Rice knew more about most everything than most of the Alabama Friday lunch crowd, including movies. Rice thought any movie that John Wayne appeared in was a good movie.“He could be hard-headed and we didn’t always agree with him, but he was right most of the time,” Colley said.Sometimes, Rice would invite his Friday lunch friends up to his house on Lake Martin. He would take them to lunch at Hotel Talisi and then out on the lake on his boat.“Bill liked to have a good time and he liked to have friends around,” said Jimmy Phillips. “And, we liked to be around him. We always had a good time when Bill was around.”Allen Jones said that Rice made good and lasting friendships and especially with those of like minds – Alabama minds.“He became very good friends with Martha Bradshaw Gibbs, who was married to Charlie Bradshaw, who was an assistant at Alabama,” Jones said. “She was close friends with the Bryants. Their friendship was a unique connection with the Bryant family.”Over the years, Bill Rice formed many friendships but none closer that the ones with the Alabama Friday Lunch Crowd.The “crowd” had lunch on the Friday before he died on Saturday.“None of us ever thought …” Calhoun said.Rice had watched Bama win a close one over Arkansas and later suffered a heart attack at his home.Davis and Phillips went immediately to the emergency room at Troy Regional Medical Center to be with him.“Bill asked me what I was doing there and I told him I came to be with a friend,” Phillips said.Davis said, with a smile, that, in true Bill Rice fashion, he kept asking the nurses, “Is Auburn still losing?”Rice died the way that his friends had often thought he might – after the excitement of an Alabama victory.Bill Rice Sr. is gone from the Alabama Friday Lunch Crowd but he is not forgotten.His Alabama friends are still holding his chair for him and his name always comes up at Friday lunches and not just one time but also many.“After Marsha’s illness and her death, Bill said that coming to our Friday lunch was the highlight of his week. He still has the place of honor at our table. He’s still with us,” Phillips said.On Monday night, Alabama will play LSU for the national championship.Some of his friends will be at the game and the others will be watching on television. And, to a one, they will be rooting for their team and hoping and believing that the Tide can win one for the Rice man.

Tesla police vehicle runs out of power during car chase in California

first_imgFremont Police Department(FREMONT, Calif.) — A California police department is adding fuel to the electric car debate after one of its patrol cars, a Tesla Model S, nearly ran out of juice during a vehicle pursuit last week.It all started on a quiet Friday night in Fremont, when the city’s automated license plate reader system got a hit on a white Toyota Avalon entering the city’s limits and alerted the city’s authorities. The Toyota, wanted in connection with a felony in Santa Clara, was eventually located in an AutoZone parking lot by Fremont Police Officer Jesse Hartman at 11 p.m. on Sept. 20. That night, Hartman was driving his department’s one and only Tesla patrol car, part of a six-month pilot program the Fremont Police Department was studying in an attempt to reduce emissions and improve efficiency. When the Toyota finally pulled out of the AutoZone parking lot, Hartman attempted to stop the vehicle.“I lit him up and he is not yielding. We are in pursuit,” Hartman is heard saying over the radio, according to Broadcastify audio obtained by ABC News.The pursuit then kicked off into a high-speed highway chase toward San Jose. Additional Fremont police officers and California Highway Patrol responded within minutes, as Hartman raced after the suspect at more than 100 miles per hour on Interstate-680 South. Meanwhile, requests for a CHP helicopter were made and San Jose authorities were notified.“120 [miles per hour] … light traffic,” one officer said on the radio, police sirens heard ringing in the background.Then the Tesla alerted Hartman that there was an issue with the vehicle.“I’m down to six miles of battery,” began Hartman. “I may lose it here in a sec. If someone else is able, can they maneuver into the number one spot?” Hartman asked the other officers on the radio.CHP took over the pursuit, as the male suspect started to drive erratically and passed over the center divide between the north and southbound lanes.“At that point, we called it off for safety,” Fremont public affairs manager Geneva Bosques told ABC News. The pursuit lasted eight minutes.“It’s very common to call off pursuits once they become safety issues,” Bosques added, citing the safety of other drivers on the road, despite the light traffic at the time.As Hartman pulled off to recharge his vehicle, California Highway Patrol continued the hunt for the suspect, eventually locating the car a mile or two off the highway, abandoned. No other passengers were in the vehicle.Bosques said the department still doesn’t know why the car wasn’t fully charged, but notes that Hartman’s shift started at 2 p.m. that day — nine hours before the pursuit began.“Officers will usually travel 70-90 miles [in an 11-hour shift] so the car is regularly going two shifts without a charge,” said Bosques, adding that the general range of one battery charge is around 200 miles. The department’s general guideline is to start a shift with 50% of a gas tank or charge.“But when you are driving and accelerating at high speeds, there are certain triggers that make the battery go faster,” she added.Fremont’s population is around 235,000 people and has 199 sworn officers working for the area, according to Bosques.While not the first police department to own a Tesla, it is the first agency in the United States to have a Tesla fully outfitted and working in a patrol capacity, said Bosques. The car was bought used in January 2018 and cost $61,000. It took more than a year for the department to outfit it with modifications like light bars, a push bumper, armored door panels and a prisoner cage.Fremont is also home to a Tesla factory, something the department took advantage of when making its modifications.“We were able to work with a couple of Tesla engineers to disable some of the equipment” like alert sensors that kept going off when we installed the pushbar to the front of the car, said Bosques.The six-month pilot program, which officially ended Wednesday, will be used to track data and statistics in hopes the department can reduce its carbon footprint but also save the city money in the long term. The team will be looking at actual mileage-per-charge, vehicle downtime and maintenance costs, among other items.According to the department, despite the Tesla costing $20,000 more than a Ford patrol car to purchase, the Tesla’s five-year maintenance and repair costs are expected to be $3,900, compared with a Ford vehicle’s costs of nearly $16,000.ABC News reached out to the Santa Clara Police Department for an update on the apprehension of the Toyota Avalon’s driver but has not heard back yet as of Thursday.This is the second pursuit the department’s Tesla has been involved in. In the first instance, the Tesla was chasing a vehicle involved in auto burglarly and that suspect was caught, according to Bosques.“It’s meeting the expectations that we’ve had for it. It’s handling well,” said Bosques, adding that this could have happened with any car, gas or electric.“We do run out of gas [on pursuits]. It happens. We’ve also had regular cars get flat tires on a pursuit, or cars that just die on a pursuit,” she continued.“It’s definitely good to know [this can happen but] it did not jeopardize this pursuit,” she added.

Fake Zoopla invoice payment phishing email circulating, agents are warned

first_imgEstate agents who list their properties with Zoopla are being warned to stay vigilant after a phishing email began circulating yesterday sent by criminals hoping to dupe companies into parting with their cash.The email, which is similar to those some agents have received in the past, look credible at first glance and are branded twice with the Zoopla logo. They also feature the portal’s real customer support number and email address.But the text urges agents to pay three outstanding invoices for services supplied by Zoopla and click links to documents hosted on a dubious-looking website for Antarctic exploration enthusiasts, www.waponline.it.Agents are asked to pay their outstanding invoices to ‘ZPG Ltd’ via a European HSBC bank account, funds which they are clearly unlikely to ever see again.But although the links within the email go to what appears to be the Zoopla Pro login page, in reality it’s a cloned version designed to trick agents into revealing their login details.The scammers will then login into an agency’s Pro account and harvest sensitive data.Agents should watch out for emails with the subject line ‘Zoopla Invoices from Zoopla Property Group’ flagged up as urgent within their inboxes.The agents who sent us the email, who doesn’t wish to identified, says they believe the scammers are targeting agents via their social media profiles.“We’re aware that online fraudsters are targeting portal users with phishing emails in an effort to get them to share login details. The security of our agent partners is a key priority for us and regularly share with them advice on how to keep their businesses secure. If any agent does have concerns they can contact their Account Manager who will be happy to help them,” says a Zoopla spokesperson.The fake emailphishing email Zoopla June 11, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
