Staff were to be given the option of moving either to Dublin or to Cork to continue in their jobs.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The government this week announced the establishment of a Commission on the Future of Irish Public Service Broadcasting and asked that no decision be made until it brings forward proposals in September of next year.Limerick Fine Gael TD Tom Nevill said he was very glad that the government supported the call to suspend the closure of the Limerick studio.“It will give time and space this to be looked at and time and space to allow for a forensic examination which I’m sure will prove us all right in relation to keeping the station in Limerick.”The move was also welcomed by Limerick Labour Party TD Jan O’Sullivan who said that the Government had seen sense and intervened with additional funding and asked RTÉ management to defer their short-sighted decision.“However, I cannot stress how important it is for the Government to act on license fee reform and not to use the Commission on the Future of Public Service Broadcasting to kick the can down the road.”City North Councillor Conor Sheehan (Lab) said that having organised an emergency Council meeting against the closure, he was glad that the Minister has listened to local concerns.“A full frank and open dialogue is needed over the next year between RTÉ management and the Department of Communications including divulging the cost of moving Lyric to UL to find a way forward for the station in Limerick.”Fine Gael Senator Maria Byrne said the request by the Government was timely considering the studio was due to close in 2020.“I know this will be welcome news for the 20 full-time staff that are based in the studios and their families in the lead up to Christmas.  I have been lobbying Minister Richard Bruton and RTÉ management to reconsider this decision.” NewsBusinessCommunityTemporary reprieve for Lyric fm Limerick studioBy Bernie English – December 12, 2019 206 Exercise With Oxygen Training at Ultimate Health Clinic center_img Previous articleLimerick Institute of Technology awarded €750,000 capital grant towards works on its five campusesNext article163 children homeless in Limerick and Clare as Christmas approaches Bernie Englishhttp://www.limerickpost.ieBernie English has been working as a journalist in national and local media for more than thirty years.

first_imgST. LOUIS (AP) — Bradley rallied from an 18-point deficit in the second half and earned its first NCAA Tournament berth since 2006, beating Northern Iowa 57-54 in the Missouri Valley Conference championship game. Elijah Childs scored 16 points for fifth-seeded Bradley. The Braves trailed 35-17 with 17 minutes left. They advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the ninth time overall — in their last appearance, as a 13th seed, they beat Kansas and Pittsburgh before losing to Memphis. MASON CITY — The NIACC women are headed back to the national tournament. The second-ranked Lady Trojans outlasted fourth-ranked Kirkwood 77-70 on Sunday to claim the Region XI championship and earn their ninth national tournament appearance, in a game you heard on AM-1300 KGLO. NIACC coach Todd Chichetto says the game lived up to the billing of being a hard-fought challenge for both squads.All-tournament team captain and conference player of the year Mandy Willems scored 16 points, Jada Buford had 15 while Autam Mendez added 14 to lead the Lady Trojans. Those three as well as Kelcie Hale made the Region XI all-tournament team.Chichetto says he’s proud of how his team, which is all freshmen except for one player, grew during the second half of the seasonChichetto was named the conference coach of the year. NIACC will play next week in the Division II national tournament starting on March 19th in Harrison Arkansas.== Listen back to Todd Chichetto’s full post-game interview LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Amir Harris scored the go-ahead layup with 10.8 seconds left and Thorir Thorbjarnarson blocked Jordan Bohanon’s 3-point try at the buzzer as Nebraska came back from a nine-point deficit in the last minute of regulation to beat Iowa 93-91 in overtime. The win might have served as an emotional sendoff for Cornhuskers’ coach Tim Miles, whose future at Nebraska is in serious doubt after his team’s free fall the second half of the season. Iowa lost its fourth straight. OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Alexa Middleton scored 24 points, Bridget Carleton and Ashley Joens had double-doubles and No. 19 Iowa State took control down the stretch to defeat No. 21 Texas 75-69 in the Big 12 Tournament semifinals.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Megan Gustafson scored 45 points Sunday to lead No. 10 Iowa past No. 8 Maryland 90-76 for its first Big Ten Tournament title since 2001. It’s the longest gap between conference crowns since the tourney became an annual event in 1995, and the Hawkeyes claimed the league’s automatic NCAA Tournament bid with a victory over the Big Ten’s regular-season champion. Kaila Charles scored a career-high 36 point for the Terrapins. Mason City native Makenzie Meyer played 37 minutes in Sunday’s game, scoring seven points and handing out five assists.

He said a clerk told him his mother’s statement had been sent to “the wrong area of the building.” At Jim Coyle’s request, his mother’s paperwork was resubmitted and the hefty fine rescinded. “I don’t want to look at it with a jaundiced eye,” said Jim Coyle, who lives in North Hollywood. “It was just a simple mistake.” Traffic Court administrator Greg Blair said the failure-to-appear charge has been deleted from Coyle’s file and that Los Angeles police Officer Kelly, whose first name has not been disclosed, has until June 20 to mail the court his statement on what happened that day in February. In a trial by declaration, a judge decides a case based on written statements by the involved parties. A $114 jaywalking ticket given to an 82-year-old Sunland woman – a citation that sparked the ire of senior citizens citywide – almost cost the recipient $600 because of a clerical error by the court, officials said Friday. Mayvis Coyle was cited Feb. 15 for jaywalking after a police officer said she crossed busy Foothill Boulevard against the light. She then was slapped with a $600 fine for failing to appear in court – although her son, Jim, said she mailed paperwork seeking a noncourt trial well in advance of the filing deadline. What happened then to the documents – sent via certified mail – is unclear, Jim Coyle said. But when Mayvis Coyle’s declaration didn’t get into the right hands, a judge declared that she had failed to appear in court. He fined her $600 and sent her case to a collection agency. On Feb. 15, Kelly wrote Coyle a ticket, saying she entered the crosswalk on a don’t-walk signal. Coyle insists she entered on a walk signal.

Nicholas Pepe struck his best goal this season as Lille beat Nimes 3-2 to join Neymar on eleven goals.The Ivorian sensation once again leads the line together with Jonathan Ikone and Jonathan Bamba in a fabled ‘BIP’ attack as the Champions League chasing Lille welcome Alain Cassanova’s Toulouse to northern France.But the pick of the matches is in Montpellier where the high flying hosts battle stuttering Olympique Lyon. 2011 champs Montpellier feel they can pick point off Bruno Genesio’s side as the visitors had to contend with a grueling cup fixture at Amiens on Wednesday night.Saint Etienne, Bordeaux and Monaco all have winnable home ties against Dijon, Amiens and Guingamp respectively.Cameras are to be especially fully zoomed on Monaco’s clash with Guingamp as it is a winner takes all relegation six pointer.Fixture:Sunday.-Lille Metropole v Toulouse @11:00pm-Paris SG v Nantes @11:00pmMontpellier v Olympique Lyon @11:00pm-Strasbourg v Nice @11:00pm-Angers v Olympique Marseille @11:00pm-Monaco v Guingamp @11:00pm-Saint Etienne v Dijon @11:00pm-Rennes v Nimes @11:00pm-Reims v Caen @11:00pmSunday.-Bordeaux v Amiens @07:00pmComments last_img read more

first_imgBrian Rohrbough, father of one of the students killed in the Columbine school shooting in 1999, spoke on CBS News “free speech” segment October 2 after the recent Amish school shooting.  Tonight (Nov. 22) on Fox News, the Bill O’Reilly show replayed an interview he had with Rohrbough about that CBS speech that led to a firestorm of reaction in the media and on the web (example).  It was taped last month on his Talking Points October 6.  O’Reilly titled it, “CBS News allows conservative point of view and all hell breaks loose.”  He especially had taken issue with a poor choice of words Katie Couric had used on her blog, “We knew when we decided to put on this segment that a lot of people would disagree with it.  We also knew some might even find it repugnant.”  Bill countered that he found nothing at all hateful in the father’s short, impassioned yet sincere statement.    What was so repugnant?  One thing was that Rohrbough had tied the massacre to the teaching of evolution.  In Media Matters Oct. 17, Erik Boehlert called these “fringe comments.”  With little sympathy for the bereaved father or his right of free speech, he said, “Rohrbough proceeded to uncork a radical-right sermon about how godless liberals were running the country by, among other misdeeds, teaching evolution in the classroom.”  O’Reilly asked Rohrbough specifically about that reference to evolution, in which he had stated,This country is in a moral free-fall.  For over two generations, the public school system has taught in a moral vacuum, expelling God from the school and from the government, replacing him with evolution, where the strong kill the weak, without moral consequences and life has no inherent value.The popular TV host appeared doubtful that evolution could have been a motive for the crime.  Rohrbough, however, backed up the claim without a flinch.  He told O’Reilly that evolution is implicated because it “gives the right to exterminate the weak.”  Even more startling, he claimed that tapes made by the boys before they went on the shooting rampage clearly state that they were plotting their act because of evolution.  That was evidenced further by the fact that Klebold wore a T-shirt on the fateful day proclaiming “Natural Selection.”    Rohrbough was frustrated that this evidence has not been released.  “Evolution was the basis for the attack on Columbine,” he told O’Reilly; “They said it themselves.  Unfortunately, the sheriff’s department won’t release the tape.”Why won’t they release the tape?  Possibly because it is vulgar and filled with foul language; maybe because they fear emotional trauma to the families.  Or, perhaps it is considered too “politically incorrect” to link such an evil deed to evolution, lest the image of Saint Darwin be dishonored.  Here’s a cause for concerned citizens to get involved and demand that the truth come out.  Darwinists may claim till the mutant cows come home that evolution is merely a scientific theory with no moral strings attached, but students know how to connect the dots to nihilism.  Need proof?  Revisit our 08/31/2006 entry.(Visited 23 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Many people, though, may be oblivious to the fact that the South African singing icon is an honorary colonel in the South African Air Force (SAAF), and works closely with the young people of the Air Force Gymnasium, guiding them to make the right career and life decisions.“I was approached by the air force,” says Chaka Chaka of her recruitment in 2005, “and since then I’ve learned so much, it’s been so good. I really love it.”Her appointment falls under the SAAF’s outreach initiative Siyandiza (we’re flying), which encourages high school children, especially those from disadvantaged communities, to sign up for a career in the air force.Siyandiza holds annual camps for schoolchildren where, for a week, they’re not only exposed to the workings of the SAAF, but are also educated about life skills, self-discipline and etiquette, HIV/Aids awareness and substance abuse, as well as military matters.The initiative gives young people a taste of what lies in store for them, should they decide to pursue an air force career.Even that brief period is enough to change lives – during the two most recent camps held in July in the Eastern Cape and North West provinces, a pupil at one of the passing-out parades stated that the week had helped him to believe in himself and understand the folly of making wrong choices as a result of peer pressure.“We regularly take kids to play on the flying simulators at Montecasino [a casino complex in Johannesburg’s northern suburbs],” says Chaka Chaka, “and although they think it’s a game, they’re getting an idea of what it would be like to fly a real plane.”She’s assigned to the Air Force Gymnasium, based since 2009 at the Hoedspruit base near the Kruger National Park in Mpumalanga. This is the first stop for all new recruits. Here they’re assessed and shunted into the fields for which they show the greatest aptitude, and they all receive their basic training.“It’s not just about flying,” Chaka Chaka says, “but there is a place for engineers, navigators, air traffic controllers, medics, even musicians. Actually, it’s really about empowering yourself by making the most of the education that you get.”She regularly gets the call-up to interact with the recruits and do inspections at the base, and says she’s always impressed by the neatness and cleanliness she sees.“Being in the defence force teaches discipline and tolerance for others,” she says, adding that she personally believes that a stint of compulsory service would go a long way towards instilling those values in South Africa’s young people.“We need our kids to go to the air force. For those who want to serve their country but don’t know how, this is a good place to start.”Instilling good valuesBut it’s working with the Gymnasium’s young women that brings her the most gratification.“They’re far away from their home, you know,” she says, “so I talk with them about the challenges that they’ll be facing. I tell them that education comes before anything else, and that you should get to where you want to be on your own merit, and not through any other means.”This philosophy is very close to her heart – that women should use their innate talents to progress, and stand up to issues such as victimisation and harassment – and it’s one that she’s lived by.“I have no cause to regret anything I’ve done in my life,” she says. “I’ve always walked tall and I’ve done what I’ve done in my own way. I’ve never wanted to be at anyone’s mercy.”Chaka Chaka’s involvement doesn’t stop with the recruits – she challenges the brass too, advising them to freely impart their knowledge and skills and always have the best interests of their young charges at heart.She shares this advice wherever she goes – Chaka Chaka has adopted the school where she did her matric, and whenever she visits she reiterates the message, telling the children to believe in themselves and their abilities, and the teachers to treat their pupils like their own children.“I’m a mother myself, so I shoot from the hip when it comes to these issues – I tackle them head on.”In Women’s Month 2012, her message to all South African women is to encourage each other and to do away with self-doubt.“Women are the strength of the world,” says Chaka Chaka. “I gather my strength from the women who came before me.”A born leaderBorn in Dobsonville, Yvonne Chaka Chaka has enjoyed a 27-year-long career in entertainment and is one of the African continent’s most enduring and popular stars, loved as much for her humanity as for her talent.Besides her music, she heads her own charitable organisation, the Princess of Africa Foundation, which supplements her malaria awareness work for Unicef and the Roll Back Malaria Partnership.An experienced businesswoman, Chaka Chaka also runs her own promotions company and record label. She is the CEO of Gestetner Tshwane and has been a brand ambassador for First National Bank and DStv.She holds qualifications from the University of South Africa – an advanced diploma in adult education and a certificate in local government, management and administration.In January 2012 Chaka Chaka was named the first African woman to receive the World Economic Forum’s Crystal Award, given to artists who use their talent and time to improve the world around them. She joined the likes of renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma and Senegalese superstar Youssou N’Dour, both previous Crystal recipients.In April 2012 she received an honorary doctorate in music at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, at its humanities graduation ceremony.“The choice as women is ours, to rid ourselves of self-limiting beliefs and choose positive beliefs that enable us to move forward and take our rightful place in society to realise our dreams,” she said in her acceptance address.last_img read more

first_imgCALGARY – It’s more vital than ever that three other pipelines to oil export markets proceed as planned in the wake of TransCanada Corp. (TSX:TRP) shelving its Energy East pipeline on Thursday, says AltaCorp Capital analyst Dirk Lever.Lever says Canadian producers will have to transport any incremental new oil production over the next year or so using railcars, and the pipeline transportation system out of Western Canada will remain tight for years.“We already know the next incremental barrel of production has got to go by rail because the pipelines are effectively full,” he said Friday.In a report in July, RBC Capital Markets predicted oilsands production would grow by 900,000 barrels per day in the next five years thanks to startup of Suncor Energy Inc.’s (TSX:SU) 194,000-bpd Fort Hills mine and several smaller projects, including an 80,000-bpd expansion at Canadian Natural Resources Ltd.’s (TSX:CNQ) Horizon mine and upgrader.It pointed out that about three-quarters of the new bitumen production is not going to be upgraded, which means it will have to be diluted to create a product composed of 30 to 40 per cent lighter petroleum in order to flow in a pipeline. That will increase the demand for pipeline volumes beyond what is required for the heavy oil alone, it said.Opponents of pipeline projects who look at the oil forecasts and conclude they aren’t needed sometimes overlook the diluent component of shipping bitumen, said Tim McMillan, CEO of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.“We will exceed our current and projected pipeline capacity by 2030 with (Energy East) gone … not just on a strategic level but by volume,” he said.Lever said Energy East could come off the shelf and be proposed again for regulatory approval if any of the other pipelines don’t go ahead or if market conditions change to encourage higher production growth.“Energy East was more than what was needed,” he said of the proposal to ship 1.1 million bpd from Alberta to New Brunswick.“Producers weren’t going to pay for that much excess capacity so I’m not surprised it fell to the wayside. If one of those (other pipelines) falls away, then Energy East would be needed.”He said the next capacity increase is expected to come with Enbridge Inc.’s (TSX:ENB) Line 3 pipeline replacement project, which is under construction in Canada and awaiting its last U.S. regulatory approvals in Minnesota. It is expected to add 370,000 bpd of capacity by early 2019.But that additional room will only just accommodate new output from oilsands expansions and the situation will remain tight until the Trans Mountain expansion pipeline to the West Coast proposed by Kinder Morgan is in service, expected to add 590,000 bpd by late 2019, Lever said. That project is being actively opposed in court by the B.C. government and other intervenors.TransCanada hasn’t yet approved its Keystone XL pipeline into the U.S. but Lever said its 830,000-bpd capacity would likely provide enough room for Canadian oil production growth until about 2030, when the industry expects Canadian production to reach five million barrels per day.Lever pointed out that having excess pipeline capacity is important because it gives producers options to supply different markets and offers the pipeline operators flexibility to schedule maintenance downtime.Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter.last_img read more

GirouxS. CouturierJ. Voracek231069.7 For the first couple months of the season, the Boston Bruins had more problems than they could handle. They had lost more games than they had won. They were firmly out of the playoff picture. Top-line center Patrice Bergeron and his linemate Brad Marchand had both missed time with injuries. So had second-line center David Krejci. Goalie Tuukka Rask was a husk of his former self, and looked for a moment as though he might lose his starting job. Matt Beleskey, who the Bruins decided to pay $19 million because he had a handful of good weeks during the spring of 2015, had been placed on waivers.1He cleared them and now plays for Boston’s AHL affiliate in Providence.This was a team that had won the Presidents’ Trophy as recently as 2013-14, and that had a core made up of several skaters who’d played in two of the past seven Stanley Cup Finals. This was also a team that had failed to qualify for two of the past three postseasons, and that hadn’t won a playoff series since they beat the Detroit Red Wings in the spring of 2014.But since a loss to the Washington Capitals in mid-December, the Bruins have been damn near untouchable: They are 14-0-4 in their last 18 games. The Bruins looked like basement dwellers a few months ago, and now pundits are wondering whether they’re legitimate Stanley Cup contenders. But are they for real, or is this streak just a tantalizing aberration?The Bruins are a balanced hockey team — seven skaters have at least 25 points — but much of their recent form can be attributed to the extraordinary play of a rejuvenated Rask and the top line of Bergeron, Marchand, and David Pastrnak, which has established itself as one of the best in the NHL.In his last 18 starts, Rask has lost exactly zero games in regulation; in his prior 13 starts, he had won just three. During his recent dominant stretch, Rask has stopped 94 percent of the shots he’s faced; during his disastrous stretch, he stopped just under 90 percent of the shots he faced.2Not what you’d expect from the NHL’s all-time leader in save percentage.Goaltender play is notoriously unstable, so these gulfs in Rask’s performance aren’t actually as shocking as they seem on the surface. Even if Rask’s save percentage regresses and he stops roughly 92 percent of the shots he faces for the rest of the season, the Bruins will be in good shape.To explain the dominance of Marchand, Bergeron, and Pastrnak, the best place to start is their possession numbers. Bergeron is yet again among the league’s elite faceoff takers, winning more than 57 percent of his draws.3That number drops a bit to roughly 53 percent on power play draws, but Bergeron can be forgiven — unless he’s the man in the penalty box, teams often task their best faceoff man with taking draws on the penalty kill. Among qualifying skaters, all three on Boston’s top line rank in the top 50 in Corsi percentage,4Adjusted for score, zone and venue. which estimates a player’s possession rate by measuring the percentage of shot attempts directed at his opponent’s net versus his own net while he’s on the ice. And because the Bruins’ top troika are sending so many shots toward their opponents’ nets, all three also rank in the top 15 for goals per 60 minutes.Among lines that qualify, only 11 others in the NHL have a higher combined shooting percentage than the combination of Marchand, Bergeron, and Pastrnak. And their goals for percentage — which takes the total number of goals scored while a line is on the ice together and calculates the percentage of those goals that were goals scored by the line — is by far the best in the league.

Marchessault321666.7 None of this is to say the Bruins are a one-line team — they’re far from it. Rookie forwards Danton Heinen and Jake DeBrusk have already chipped in with 11 goals each, and rookie defenseman Charlie McAvoy5McAvoy recently underwent minor surgery to correct an abnormal heart rhythm, but is expected to return in two weeks. is building a solid case for the Calder Memorial Trophy. And David Krejci is a pretty decent second line center, too: He’s scored 24 points in 29 games, and he’s winning 56.3 percent of his faceoffs, by far the best mark of his career.Boston will lose in regulation again — Marchand, who is serving a five-game suspension, and McAvoy’s temporary absences should ensure this happens sooner than later. But there’s nothing in recent memory suggesting Boston’s top line will cease to be a possession beast any time soon.6All three forwards finished in the top ten in Corsi percentage in 2016-17. If they keep getting (and burying) their chances — and if Rask’s ascendancy holds up, which his dazzling career implies it might — the Bruins might find themselves playing hockey in June again. read more
