first_imgA Donegal TD is encouraging the county’s marine stakeholders to submit suggestions for the Government’s upcoming Integrated Marine Plan.The plan, which will be published in the summer, “will be a national agenda for developing our country’s marine potential, across tourism, shipping, leisure, fisheries and other sectors,” said Joe McHugh.The Dáil deputy noted “it is significant” that Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Minister for the Marine Simon Coveney are “dealing with this personally” as “previous Governments did not give this type of prioritisation to the industry”. He added: “I encourage Donegal marine stakeholders who see potential for national development in the fisheries, sea tourism, marine leisure, oil production and energy industries and in various other areas to make submissions to the Integrated Marine Plan.”More information on the Integrated Marine Plan can be found atwww.oceanwealth.ie. McHUGH URGES DONEGAL INPUT INTO MARINE PLAN was last modified: March 30th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:McHUGH URGES DONEGAL INPUT INTO MARINE PLANlast_img read more

Over 100 at Killea meeting as border villages ‘being held to ransom by a few thugs’

first_imgOver 100 people attended a public meeting in Killea last night amid frustration and anger at a recent rise in crime in the border area.The meeting, held in the community hall in Killea, saw a cross section of the community come together to raise awareness following a a week that saw two fresh burglaries in neighbouring villages. Local County Councillor Paul Canning, who attended the meeting, which was chaired by Killea resident Kieran Feeney, said people in the area were concerned. “The towns on the border of Derry and Strabane are basically being held to ransom by a few thugs,” Councillor Canning blasted.“There is frustration and anger in our community. “There were over 100 people at the meeting and we didn’t expect that turnout. The turnout itself shows the level of the feeling. People are just fed up. The turnout was 25 to 30 per cent of the register of Killea; pretty much one from every household.“We had the complete mix: Young and old; male and female; business people and members of the public.” His comments come after businesses in Newtowncunningham and St Johnston woke to criminal damage and thefts during the week.On Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, thieves broke into a pharmacy in Newtowncunningham. The culprits caused significant damage to the shutter, window and door frame before making off with two tills from the premises.At around 1.45am on Thursday morning, thieves gained access to a car breaker’s yard in St Johnston after breaking a lock on the gates.A silver Volvo, which has been the subject of several community alerts around the St Johnston, Carrigans, Killea and Newtowncunningham areas, was spotted on CCTV footage at the St Johnston breaker’s yard.“We decided to set up a closed group that will be connected on WhatsApp to raise awareness and share information,” Councillor Canning said. “Since the meeting, I have had about 40 requests from people wanting their number added and a lot of these people would be on the periphery of the Killea area. The link between these villages of Killea, Newtown, St Johnston and Carrigans is very important and we have to get that nucleus of people on board.“We’re asking people to share information and to keep an eye on neighbours. It’s important to note that a lot of people are in a social media bubble and know everything that’s happening, but we have to remember a lot of people aren’t on social media and, therefore, aren’t as aware.“That’s particularly true with older people, but we would ask that neighbours and family check in and keep an eye.”A group of six individuals has been appointed who will speak to both the local Garda Superintendent, the PSNI and also the Donegal County Council and Derry-Strabane Councils. “It has become very simple for these criminals and gangs to just skip across the border again and I know the Gardaí are also frustrated,” Councillor Canning said.“There is a definite issue regarding the lack of Garda resources along this border area and it is making things easy for these scumbags to come across and wreck havoc in our areas.”  Over 100 at Killea meeting as border villages ‘being held to ransom by a few thugs’ was last modified: July 30th, 2018 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CarrigansCouncillor Paul CanningGardaiKieran FeeneyKilleaNewtowncunninghamPSNISt Johnstonlast_img read more

AWARE: A Sustainable Housing Initiative in Ohio

first_imgBy Kim StandsIn 2009, the City of Columbus and Franklin County created and adopted the AWARE Manual (Accessibility, Water Conservation, Air Quality, Resource Conscious, Energy-Efficient) to be the performance standard for federally funded residential projects in both jurisdictions.The AWARE Manual is modeled after the Enterprise Green Communities criteria to create housing that is healthy, accessible, and environmentally friendly. Homes that meet the AWARE standards, matched with resource-conscious behaviors in the home, can lead to more efficient energy use and lower utility bills.One key to AWARE: 3 site inspectionsOur approach for NSP is to create good products, to support nonprofit and for-profit developers, and to foster home sales and rentals.Our homegrown Green 101 training is required of all of our developers, spec writers, and contractors before working on NSP-funded projects. For all projects, developers must submit their plans and specifications to be reviewed for compliance with the AWARE Manual. When the units hit the construction phase, everybody involved must attend pre-construction meetings to go over all of the requirements and the inspection procedures.The City’s housing staff visits the sites regularly and requires 3 different formal inspections:• The first inspection is for the air infiltration package. This inspection is to make sure that all cracks, crevices, voids, etc. have been sealed properly, as well as the sealing of the ductwork, prior to installing insulation.• The second is the insulation inspection to verify that all insulation has been installed properly prior to installing drywall.• The third inspection is a final AWARE inspection. As with a final building inspection, we are making sure that what was specified early on has been installed. This includes Energy Star appliances and light fixtures, low-water-consumption fixtures, and high-efficiency HVAC equipment.Since the AWARE Manual is an “above the minimum building code” tool, these inspections are a vital part of how we monitor the construction phase of the program.AWARE worksSuccesses are being seen on the construction end as well as with home sales. To date, we have finished 43 units with an average HERS score of just over 65, well below the 85 score required to meet Energy Star requirements. Our current low score is a 52! With close to a 50/50 balance of new build houses and gut rehabs, we making great strides in building healthy, accessible, and environmentally friendly homes for people to buy and rent.You can find the AWARE Manual at the Come Home Central Ohio Affordable Housing Network.You can find more information on the City of Columbus and Franklin County’s creation and implementation of their green strategy on the Enterprise Green Communities website.last_img read more

Good Leads and Bad Leads

first_imgSome leads are good even though some salespeople and their sales organization perceive them to be bad. Other leads are bad, even when some salespeople believe they are good and their sales organization paid money to acquire the lead.The worst lead: The worst lead is one who does not buy what you sell and could never benefit from doing so. This is true even if the buyer title matches your ideal customer profile, and even if you paid to acquire the lead.Compelled and engaged but should be disqualified: These leads feel like good leads. They are compelled to do something different, and they are engaged in the process. All of which points towards their being a good lead. However, if this leads should be disqualified, it is not a good lead. If you are a differentiated, value creating sales organization and happened upon a transactional, lowest-priced buyer, the lead is wrong for you.The following is a list of good leads that are often mistaken for bad ones.Not ready to buy: Just because a lead is not compelled to change and does not show up to your first meeting prepared to sign a contract, is not an indication that the lead is no good. If the lead buys what you sell or would benefit from doing so, the fact that you are required to initiate the process of change doesn’t mean the lead is not good.Stalled at discovery: The fact that a lead stalls after a discovery meeting is not evidence that the lead was no good. It is greater evidence that you did not create enough value to command another meeting or lost control of the process.Leads that don’t buy: A lead that doesn’t buy from you or doesn’t buy in the time you expected them to is not a bad lead. There is a greater possibility you mismanaged it. Even if the engagement ended in a “no decision,” the fact that they engaged in the process just that the lead was good.It is easy to spend time with bad leads believing they are right when the better choice is to abandon them. The opposite is also true, meaning you can spend too little time with good leads because you perceive them to be bad. In these cases, you are better off asking yourself if another salesperson from another sales organization is going to sell that lead what you intended to sell them.The fact that a lead is difficult to sell is no indication of the quality of that lead.last_img read more

J&K suspends 22 social media sites

first_imgWith students’ protests and unrest showing no signs of letting up for second consecutive week in the Valley, the Jammu and Kashmir government on Wednesday decided to suspend 22 social networking websites and applications, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and WhatsAap, in Kashmir.Invoking the Indian Telegraph Act 1885, the government said the ban will remain in force for at least one month.According to State Home department, headed by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, the internet service providers in Kashmir Valley have been directed “to stop transmitting any content on 22 social networking sites.”“Over a period of time, an increasing trend was witnessed regarding the misuse of social media by the elements inimical to public order and tranquillity, thereby impinging on public safety, particularly in the Kashmir Valley,” reads the order issued by the home department.‘Disturbed peace’Such elements, according to the Home department, were “transmitting objectionable contents to spread disaffection amongst the public against the State administration and security forces with a view to incite them to commit various offences at a large scale, causing damage to life and property and disturb peace and tranquility.”It claimed these elements “extensively misused social media sites and instant messaging services for vitiating peace and instigating violence” during the 2016 unrest.The ban comes at a time when several videos of rights abuse and of local militants were doing the rounds on the social media. Several students protests were also streamed live on the social media. Ban opposed The move, however, has come under severe criticism from several political parties and stakeholdersin the tourism sector.“The ban denies people necessary access to prospective tourists. How will customers contact hotels and tour operators? It will ruin our business,” said Mushtaq Pahalgami, a hotel owner at Pahalgam.National Conference (NC) president and recently-elected Member of Parliament from Srinagar Dr. Farooq Abdullah said the communication blockade “would play havoc with the state’s economy and in turn, render thousands of youth unemployed.”“The PDP-BJP Government is not only suppressing the people of the State through brute force but also persecuting them economically. The continued blockade of internet will seriously affect businesses and especially youth-oriented start-ups in the e-commerce sector,” said Dr. Abdullah.Fresh clashes Students on Wednesday again clashed with security forces in parts of Kashmir Valley. Around 13 students were injured.Protesting against alleged “high-handedness of security forces against the student community”, fresh clashes led to closure of schools and colleges in Pulwama, Bandipora, Chadoora, Ganderbal and Shopian.The students were protesting against an alleged police raid on Government Degree College Pulwama on April 15, which left over 50 students injured.Last week, the authorities suspended the class work for a week after violent protests left over 50 students injured. There were fresh protests on Monday.last_img read more
