Gardaí criticised over investigation of teenager’s death

first_imgNo vaccines in Limerick yet by Andrew CareySign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up [email protected] family of a 16-year-old girl who was found submerged at the canal entrance to the Abbey river have accused Gardaí of not fully investigating the circumstances leading up to her deathCity coroner John McNamara had to call order to proceedings on a number of occasions when family members disrupted the inquest with questions and comments directed at gardai.The 16 year old girl, who was described as “level headed” and in good form, was last seen by her sister shortly after 11pm on the night before her body was discovered in the water by a passerby.Garda John O’Connell told the inquest there was no evidence that a minor assault on the girl earlier that night was linked to her death.At this point, the girl’s sister and brother asked why no other depositions were given as they were key to the circumstances on the night and could answer questions the family had about the girl’s death.The teenager was seen running from the High Street area of the city towards Denmark Street after her sister attempted to get her into a car to take her home.The family claimed that she was in the company of others when she ran from her sister.There were heated exchanges as family members told gardaí to tell the truth, claiming that they should have “further investigated” the circumstances and that there was a more sinister background to the girl’s death.Medical evidence indicated toxic levels of alcohol along therapeutic levels of diazepam and alprazolam. According to the pathology report, death was due to drowning.The coroner said that while he accepted that the girl did not have suicidal thoughts and there was no evidence of foul play, an open verdict would be the most appropriate one.One of the girl’s sisters responded: “Ye just want to open and shut this case so that it goes away – the questions will never go away for us”.Her mother said that “kids go to the canal for a drink, we all know that – they don’t go there to jump in the river. She was a happy girl and had the world in front of her. She didn’t know what she was doing but my daughter didn’t jump, I believe she was pushed.”Asked by Mr McNamara if there were any other lines of inquiry both Inspector Seamus Ruane and Garda John O’Connell said that the investigation had concluded and there was no other evidence.“Nobody saw her fall in. Nobody saw her jump in or nobody saw her being pushed so this inquest must return an open verdict”, the coroner said.

BNEF: Corporate Renewable Investments Are Soaring

first_imgBNEF: Corporate Renewable Investments Are Soaring FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg:AT&T Inc. and Walmart Inc. are among 36 businesses, government agencies and universities that have agreed to buy 3.3 gigawatts of wind and solar power so far this year. That’s on track to shatter the previous high of 4.8 gigawatts of disclosed deals last year, according to a report Monday by Bloomberg New Energy Finance.One of the key reasons is that smaller companies are more comfortable doing these deals now. “There’s a blueprint now,” said Kyle Harrison, a New York-based analyst at Bloomberg New Energy Finance. “So it’s a lot easier for other companies to do it.” In addition to the 4.8 gigawatts in announced deals last year, BNEF also estimates 600 megawatts of undisclosed contracts were signed in Asia.The gains are also due to local renewables program and growing demand in international markets like Mexico and Australia.Google and other big technology companies have driven the trend, but the pool of clean-power buyers is deepening. Smaller companies have benefited from growing standardization in the ways companies agree to buy clean energy. Sometimes these companies are recruited to buy wind and solar power from the same power plant as larger buyers that function “like anchor tenants,” Harrison said.More: Businesses Are Buying More Renewable Power Than Ever Beforelast_img read more

Jeremy Grantham reiterates bubble call, calls Covid rally truly crazy

first_img“You want to see lots of crazy behavior, which we really have seen a lot of” since June 17, Grantham added, which was when he first told CNBC that he was witnessing the fourth major bubble of his career. “And you want to see not just the market rise, but if anything, an acceleration. And the rate of market rise, since the turn in March/April, has been nothing sort of sensational.” – Advertisement – Jeremy Grantham, co-founder and chief investment strategist of Grantham Mayo van Otterloo, speaks at the ReSource 2012 conference in Oxford, England.Getty Images – Advertisement – (This story is for CNBC Pro subscribers only.)Investor Jeremy Grantham doubled down on his belief that the U.S. stock market is in a bubble, telling CNBC that many aspects of its recovery from pandemic lows have been “truly crazy.”“The more spectacular the rise and the longer it goes, the more certainty one can have that you’re in the ‘Real McCoy’ bubble,” Grantham said in an interview that aired Thursday on “Closing Bell.”- Advertisement –last_img read more

Football: Here’s Wisconsin’s only highlight from the Big Ten Championship game

first_imgIt’s a day that will go down in infamy for the Wisconsin football team, but thanks to a caring Ohio State fan, Badgers supporters now can reflect on that fateful December Saturday in a slightly positive light.It must have taken a lot of digging to find Wisconsin’s best moments from the 2014 Big Ten Championship, but someone who loves rubbing it in had enough time on his or her hands to put together this short reel of Wisconsin’s finest minute from Ohio State’s 59-0 thumping of the Badgers.The term highlights is a bit of a misnomer because there was really only one highlight.Here it is:In case that brought back bad memories, here is the missed field goal that helped Wisconsin defeat Auburn in the Outback Bowl and salvage some dignity.Almost makes you want to dance now.last_img
