Calls for emergency water works in Ballindrait after sixth burst pipe in two weeks

first_imgFurther calls have been made for urgent works be carried out by Irish Water in east Donegal as the water shortage problem worsens around the county. The calls come after a water main burst for the sixth time in two weeks in an area around Ballindrait.The news comes after a score of issues in the last number of weeks, with businesses and residents in Falcarragh and surrounding areas also been consistently affected by water outages over the last 12 months.  Cllr Gary Doherty has made the demand after the east Donegal area was left without running water.He said: “I have been in contact with Irish Water this morning to demand that they immediately carry out emergency works to install new mains coming up the hill from Ballindrait towards Tober and Ballinabreen.“It is absolutely scandalous that the people living in this area are without water now for the sixth time inside two weeks.“Residents in this area have been blighted by repeated bursts over the last number of years, however, the problem has ridiculous levels following the installation of the new mains at the bottom of the hill. “The new mains has meant increased pressure in the old pipe going up the hill and is causing it to burst repeatedly.“The time for excuses on Irish Water’s lack of action is long gone,” Doherty added.“They have a duty of responsibility for the delivery of water service in this country and the people of this area deserve better than what they are getting at the moment.“In that regard, I am appealing for residents who are affected to call Irish Water on 1890 278 278 to register their anger today and join with me in demanding that emergency works are carried out as soon as possible.“Enough is enough.” Calls for emergency water works in Ballindrait after sixth burst pipe in two weeks was last modified: May 1st, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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)last_img read more

Dimitar Berbatov hits back at Old Trafford doubters

first_imgDimitar Berbatov has insisted he was unfairly labelled as a lazy player by pundits during his time with Manchester United.The Bulgarian striker, who left Old Trafford to join Fulham earlier this year, told The Sun he did all he could for Sir Alex Ferguson’s side.“I left Manchester United with my head held very high,” he said.“I gave 100 per cent and no one could doubt my performances, especially when you compare how many minutes I actually played.“I was the Premier League’s top goalscorer in 2010-11 and never wanted to be on the bench.“Perhaps I needed to play more but I always accepted the manager’s orders. I never considered myself to be a star — only a forward working for the team.” 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Half-time: Everton 1 Chelsea 2

first_imgDiego Costa grabbed his third goal in as many games as Chelsea scored twice in the opening three minutes to take a first-half lead.Costa showed no signs of the hamstring strain that had threatened to rule him out as he ran on to a Cesc Fabregas pass and hit the ball through the legs of Everton keeper Tim Howard after 35 seconds.The goal came at the end of a wonderful team move and that quality surfaced again just over two minutes later to make it 2-0.Some slick build-up play ended with Costa finding Ramires, and the Brazilian’s pass was fired low into the net by Branislav Ivanovic.The Serbian looked fractionally offside and the hosts complained, but they were lucky to avoid going down to 10 men when Howard handled the ball outside his area soon after.Everton then settled and began to dominate possession and create chances.Former Blues striker Romelu Lukaku hit the bar with a towering header and Sylvain Distin’s follow-up effort was correctly ruled out for offside.And the strong home pressure was rewarded when Kevin Mirallas headed home a fine Seamus Coleman cross to make it 2-1 just before the interval.Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Fabregas, Matic; Ramires, Willian, Hazard; Costa.Subs: Cech, Luis, Zouma, Mikel, Schurrle, Salah, Drogba.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

The Brain Chip Cometh, & It Cometh from Intel

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#web jolie odell Our own Marshall Kirkpatrick’s dreaded brain chip for controlling computers and mobile devices may be closer than even he suspected.Intel researchers in Pittsburgh told journalists today that brain implants are harnessing human brain waves to surf the Internet, manipulate documents, and much more. And just as we told you two years ago, the lucky recipients of these implants will be willing volunteers, not government-controlled guinea pigs. Some of us are now researching cheap flights to Pittsburgh.Just think of how far we’ve come since the early days of portable tech. “If you told people 20 years ago that they would be carrying computers all the time,” said Intel research VP Andrew Chien, “they would have said, ‘I don’t want that. I don’t need that.’ Now you can’t get them to stop.”Indeed, mobility, transparency, and accessibility are all the terms of the hour; and their advocates are popular laureates. The forefront of the user interface has revolved around concepts such as intuition, organics, and biology.Gesture technology is removing one barrier that lies between human-to-machine communication; think about that the next time you twirl your iPhone around like an Etch-A-Sketch. Isn’t removing the need for physical contact the next rational step? Chien tells us that, although there are many challenges yet to solve, the day of brain-controlled computing isn’t so far off.Dean Pomerleau works for Intel on matters of cognitive neuroscience, machine learning, computer vision, robotics, man-machine interfaces, brain processing of semantic information, and various brain-scanning technologies, such as fMRI, MEG, EEG and ECoG. He and his cohorts are solving the mechanisms of brain waves.While there’s no doubt the use cases are fascinating, Pomerleau also brushes off user concerns about implants, saying, “Eventually people may be willing to be more committed… to brain implants. Imagine being able to surf the Web with the power of your thoughts.”This is the precise line of thinking that Kirkpatrick debates so heatedly – perhaps as much now as he did in his editorial almost two years ago.Have concerns around user privacy abated since then? Hardly, with Facebook and location-based-tech developers struggling to maintain balance for their users and constant struggles and inquisitions over corporate storage of user data. Has the issue of information overload lessened? If it had, would so many startups be staking their claim on the issue of firehose filtration? And is mobile tech obsolete enough to require even more portable access to the apps we love and – dare I say it? – need?Are end users ready for brain implants? You tell us.

Gov’t Training Personnel for BPO Sector

first_img Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, Hon. Daryl Vaz, says greater focus is being placed on the training of persons for the business process outsourcing (BPO) sector, particularly for higher-end activities and high-value positions.He informed that the Port Authority of Jamaica (PAJ), through its free zones, will be working closely with the HEART Trust/NTA and the Business Process Industry Association of Jamaica (BPIAJ) to develop an incubator geared towards knowledge services and technology-type work.Additionally, he said, programmes have been developed by the HEART Trust with the aid of operators within the sector, for BPO-related courses, on-the-job management training, international accreditation of courses and apprenticeship programmes.He noted that the Port Authority has also supported and participated in activities to create a skills development programme to support global services in Jamaica.This will be funded by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and will see the implementation of a finishing school, among other things, to improve employability gaps.“We have begun to diversify the type of work performed in Jamaica to create more opportunities for tertiary graduates,” Minister Vaz said.He was speaking at the opening of the ibex headquarters for the Caribbean and Central America located in the Digicel Building, 14 Ocean Boulevard in downtown Kingston on January 17.In the meantime, Minister Vaz said the next steps for the BPO sector include areas such as shared services, legal process outsourcing (LPO), and medical process outsourcing (MPO).“We have actively engaged several international shared-services operators and LPO operators in an effort to get them to expand to Jamaica,” he said.He informed that JAMPRO has engaged local universities and key stakeholders in a bid to provide details on higher-level jobs available to graduates in the new areas.“The sky is the limit for the BPO sector, and we intend to capitalise on every aspect of this lucrative industry for the benefit of Jamaica and Jamaicans,” Minister Vaz declared.Ibex, headquartered in Washington DC, USA, delivers onshore, nearshore and offshore BPO solutions in seven countries across 26 sites, maintaining a network of more than 17,000 employees.In 2016, ibex opened its Portmore location, which has since been expanded by an additional 23,000 square feet. The company continues to work towards achieving its goal of employing 5,000 persons in Jamaica in the long-term.The Jamaica BPO industry currently stands at approximately 25,000 full-time employees. Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, Hon. Daryl Vaz, says greater focus is being placed on the training of persons for the business process outsourcing (BPO) sector, particularly for higher-end activities and high-value positions.

City of Calgary begins reviewing cannabis store applications

first_imgOfficials are weeding out the winners and the losers.Starting Monday, the City of Calgary will start looking at approving or rejecting cannabis store applications.The city began accepting applications in April, and 260 of those requests are now being reviewed.Prospective pot shop owners had to get a business licence, development and building permits, a police check, and apply to the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission.There is some competition: by-laws say pot stores must be 300 metres from each other, 150 metres from schools and shelters, and 30 metres way from places of worship, pawn shops and payday loan stores. An interactive map shows clusters of requests in Kensington, the Beltline and on 17 Avenue.The City’s Senior Project Lead Brand MacInnis will be answering questions Monday morning at City Hall about how the decisions will be made, and the appeal process.There will also be an update on other steps the city will take to meet the October 17 federal deadline to legalize marijuana.last_img read more
