first_imgTwitter Print Advertisement Linkedin WhatsApp THE NUMBER of fake 50 euro notes circulating in Limerick was up this week, with seven incidents reported to Gardai.The duds were given in exchange for goods in various outlets across Limerick, mainly grocery stores, petrol stations, a pharmacy and a juice bar. In some of the instances the fraudsters managed to con staff, but in other cases, the forgeries were spotted and the notes were not accepted. On a couple of occasions staff held on to the fakes until gardai arrived.One of the culprits involved in trying to use these dud notes is described as a young red haired male of approximately 19 years and reported to have been wearing a navy tracksuit and runners at the time at the time of the attempted fraud.Gardai remind people to make sure and carry out essential security checks on euro notes. Obvious security features should be identified before accepting notes, these include; checking for the watermark, security thread, hologram patch and raised print. The value numeral on the 50 euro note will also change colour from purple to olive green or brown when tilted if the note is a genuine.By taking a few seconds to feel, examine and tilt euro notes, fraudsters can be prevented from passing off their fakes as the real thing.center_img Previous articleCollins family to march in honour of Roy’s deathNext articleLease Market’s Field for soccer, cllr pleads admin Email Facebook NewsLocal NewsFake 50 euro notes in circulationBy admin – May 7, 2009 2497 last_img read more

Managers avoid union recognition

first_imgManagers avoid union recognitionOn 1 Jul 2002 in Personnel Today Senior executives and HR are at odds over how to handle union recognitionbids under the Employment Relations Act 1999, according to research. More than half of all companies try to resist recognition through a varietyof tactics, despite the statutory framework, according to the study byCambridge University’s MIT Institute. But the opposition is coming from senior management, not HR. “Three-quarters of firms resisting unions do so because seniorexecutives oppose recognition. Only a fraction of HR professionals agree,”said Sarah Oxenbridge, at a London conference last month. Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. last_img

Government to complete hospital holding company establishment by December

first_imgUpon the completion, Erick said the ministry would be open to taking Pertamedika public so that the company could find strategic partners to help expand the holding company’s business.“The partnership must also create an added value for state-owned companies,” he said, expressing hope that the holding company could provide adequate health security for all Indonesians in the future.“Right now, about 58 percent of our population is at their productive age but 20 to 30 years from now they will grow old, so we need to prepare to provide appropriate health security from now,” he said. “After the establishment, total revenue could increase to Rp 8 trillion,” Erick told the press in Jakarta, adding that the holding company would control 25 percent of the hospital market share in the country.Other than creating growth in the hospital business, the hospital holding company will allow state-owned firms to focus on their core business, he said.Currently, several state-run firms such as energy holding firm Pertamina, ship operator PT Pelayaran Nasional Indonesia (Pelni) and steelmaker PT Krakatau Steel have their own hospital subsidiaries.The first phase of the holding company’s establishment, which will merge Pertamedika with Pelni’s hospital subsidiaries, is expected to be completed in June. The action will continue with other state-owned firms’ hospitals afterward.

Barcelona midfielder sentenced to 32 months in prison

first_imgRelatedPosts Suarez agrees Atletico terms Messi becomes football’s second billionaire + Top 10 Messi staying back at Barca is ‘fantastic’ — Koeman Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan has been handed a suspended two-years and eight months prison sentence for firing a gun to incite fear and panic, illegal possession of weapons and causing intentional injury. The Turkish ace, currently on loan at Istanbul Basaksehir, was involved in a brawl with a Turkish singer called Berkay Sahin on October 10, 2018. Sahin was left with a broken nose after the altercation and Arda arrived in hospital later that night with a gun, which he fired at the ground to cause a panic. Arda was charged with sexual harassment against Berkay Sahin’s wife, carrying unlicensed weapons, intentional wounding, and shooting with a gun. Basaksehir have since confirmed that they have fined the 32-year-old 2.5 million Turkish lira (£350,648) for the incident, with the final hearing of the case heard in court today. Arda was acquitted of sexual harassment but received a suspended two years, eight months and 15 days prison sentence for shooting with guns in a manner that would create fear, anxiety or panic and possession of unlicensed weapons. He is not due to spend any time in jail, though, with the sentence suspended as long as he avoids any further legal issues for a period of five years. After appearing in court on Wednesday, Arda released a statement via his official Instagram account, which reads: “I did not commit this ‘verbal harassment’ crime which even bothers me to speak of it. “Nor it is possible. The headline of this event is that I’m acquitted of the charges of harassment; not the penalties I received for errors I made due to these slanders thrown at me.” Turan joined Barcelona from Atletico Madrid for €34 million (£30m/$37m) in 2015 and has since appeared in 55 matches across all competitions for the club. The skillful attacker has picked up four major honours during his time at Camp Nou, including the La Liga title in 2015-16, but was sent to Basaksehir on a two-year loan deal midway through the 2018-19 campaign. Turan has played three games in the Super Lig so far this season and he also has 100 caps under his belt for Turkey, scoring 17 goals in total.Tags: arda turanBarcelonaIstanbul Basaksehirlast_img read more
