They also have the option of purchasing an adjacent plot of land down the line.The land in question was originally purchased by Supermacs owner Pat McDonagh with a significant portion of that then sold on to Laois County Council.Cllr Willie Aird, who owns land nearby, led the way in saying what good news it was for the county.“It’s been about 25 years since we have had news like this and I can think of any amount of factories and different places that have closed down in the meantime,” said Cllr Aird at today’s meeting of Laois County Council.“There is confidence growing in our town and we have what others around the country haven’t – location. This project is only the starting point.”Cllr Aird added that the council policy will be to sell other small sites to start up businesses.“They won’t be sold to people who just want to sit on the land for a number of years. The sites will be sold to entrepreneurs when they come forward with ideas. A huge problem for these people is getting somewhere suitable for their business.”Cllr Mary Sweeney said “it’s a whole new era for Portlaoise”. “I sincerely hope people will row in with it,” she added.“It’s very positive, exciting news.”“It’s one of the most exciting stories,” added Cllr Catherine Fitzgerald. “It’s a really good news story and I’m delighted. We have been starved of jobs and critical of Enterprise Ireland.“But 78 full time jobs and 250 during construction is a great boost. I want to congratulate Kieran Kehoe and John Mulholland in Laois County Council for the work they have done. These things don’t just happen – a lot of work goes on behind the scenes.“I hope this is the start of Togher – but the people of Laois won’t let them down.”“Sometimes we have reservations about disposing of land,” said Cllr Brendan Phelan.“But we’re all excited about this. There wasn’t any reservations and it gives hope that some more jobs will be coming to Laois.”Cllr John King added that Glanbia’s decision can “show that Laois is place to do business in” while Cllr Tom Mulhall said that the decision to buy that land was “one of the best investments Laois County Council has made”.Kieran Kehoe, Director of Services, said it’s hoped that work will commence on the site in September and that the councillors have already signed off on the necessary services that need to be put in – including roads, electricity and broadband.”SEE ALSO – Council buy old Portlaoise primary school to use as new home for local music groups WhatsApp Twitter Five Laois monuments to receive almost €200,000 in government funding Twitter Facebook Home News Council Laois councillors rubber-stamp decision to sell land to Glanbia NewsCouncil Laois councillors rubber-stamp decision to sell land to Glanbia By Steven Miller – 30th July 2018 Previous articleCouncil buy old Portlaoise primary school to use as new home for local music groupsNext articleWarm council welcome as Pauline Madigan takes her seat Steven Millerhttp://www.laoistoday.ieSteven Miller is owner and managing editor of LaoisToday.ie.

News News By Kim Tae Hong – 2011.12.01 11:40am News North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China Entire border patrol unit in North Hamgyong Province placed into quarantine following “paratyphoid” outbreak News Oh Christmas Tree! SHARE RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Kim Tae Hong There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest It is likely that a steel Christmas tree erected last year on Aegibong, a hill near Gimpo City just 3km away from North Korea, will be allowed to make a return this year.According to a government source, the Ministry of National Defense has accepted the request from a Christian group because it fits the spirit of the holiday season. The Christmas tree will be lit for one week prior to Christmas and approximately a week following.Last year, it was originally permitted from December 21st to the 26th, but was later extended until January 8th this year.Showing considerable inside knowledge, Rodong Shinmun, the publication of the Chosun Workers’ Party criticized the plan on November 29th, declaring, “The puppet military authorities are clamoring about lighting the Aegibong Christmas tree for a week from December 19th. The puppet’s anti-Republic psychological warfare is now at full tilt.” South Korea stopped allowing the lighting of the tree in 2004 following an agreement between the two Koreas under which both sides would eliminate all types of propaganda from around the DMZ; the North asserts that the lights on Aegibong are provocative.

Facebook Twitter Group of women face public trial for stealing massive amounts of manure and selling to markets News Namhung Youth Chemical Complex. Image: DPRK TodayAmidst reports that North Korean workers in financial jeopardy are stealing from factories and selling their loot to local markets, a group of women were recently hauled to a public trial for stealing and selling manure.“Three women were caught selling manure they had stolen from the Namhung Youth Chemical Co-operative Factory,” a source in South Pyongan Province told Daily NK. “They faced a public trial in the Namhung Workers District in Anju, South Pyongan Province.”While selling goods stolen from factories is common in North Korea, the three women faced punishment due to extent of their crimes. It’s not clear, however, what kind of punishment they received after the public trial.“The women provided places to stay and food to manure procurement officers who spend just a couple months in various parts of the country. They were able to receive some of the manure the procurement officers were handling as payment for their services, which they then sold at the local market,” said the source.“The women found out when the manure the procurement officers were handling was going to be shipped, and made a lot of money by taking payments in manure equivalent to ten times the amount they would have been paid. They received around 30 to 40 tons of manure per year in this way.”One kilogram of manure goes for around 3,000 won in North Korea’s markets so the women earned around 95 million to 120 million North Korean won. This would equal around 11,875 to 15,000 USD – a fantastic sum considering North Korean workers only earn around one dollar per month.A source in North Pyongan Province added that the women lived near manure factories and “had a large network of factory officials they could tap into.”“Their network was so large – stretching across local police stations, prosecutors’ offices and Party committees – that manure procurement officers in South Hamgyong Province, North Pyongan Province and the two Hwanghae provinces couldn’t touch them,” she said.Satellite imagery of Namhung Youth Chemical Complex. Image: Google EarthThey likely earned substantial profits during the farming season due to the high price of manure.“Farms purchase manure at high prices in cash because they can’t rely on government supplies of manure,” said the South Pyongan Province-based source, adding that “this has caused endless cases of corruption.”North Korea has massive manure production factories, but they are old, lack raw materials, and don’t sufficient electricity to operate properly. Most of the manure they do produce goes to the military.Farms that need manure to conduct agricultural activities to meet their production quotas are faced with having to pay a premium for manure.

Finance Minister Defends Discussions in Sale of JPSCo UncategorizedMay 4, 2007 RelatedFinance Minister Defends Discussions in Sale of JPSCo RelatedFinance Minister Defends Discussions in Sale of JPSCo Advertisements RelatedFinance Minister Defends Discussions in Sale of JPSCo FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Minister of Finance and Planning, Dr. Omar Davies has defended the manner in which discussions were conducted by Mirant Corporation to sell its 80 per cent shareholding in the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPSCo), to the Japanese firm, Marubeni.Responding to the Opposition’s call for public scrutiny of the negotiations leading to the sale of the JPSCo, the Finance Minister pointed out that, until an agreement in principle has been reached between seller and potential buyer, any public utterance on such a negotiation could lead to criminal charges, as millions of dollars could be made through access to such confidential information, whether the prospects are positive or negative. The Finance Minister was making his closing presentation in the 2007/08 Budget Debate in the House of Representatives on May 2.To allay fears of the Opposition Spokesman on Finance, Mr. Audley Shaw, who in his budget presentation said that the JPSCo was being sold to “some other company in some far away place,” Dr. Davies noted that, “Marubeni Corporation is one of the big corporations in Japan and indeed the world, with a revenue base of US$26.8 billion with gross profit being US$4.4 billion and has operations in 72 countries worldwide.”Additionally, Dr. Davies said the country should ensure that the rules governing the operations of the entities not only protect the rights of consumers, but also provide an attractive environment within which investors, domestic and external, wish to do business. Continuing, the Finance Minister informed that the principals of Marubeni have expressed concern at comments expressed locally about the proposed sale. Dr. Davies maintained that, “we need to reassure not just Marubeni, but all potential investors that when we say Jamaica is open for business, we mean it.”In closing, the Minister appealed for the issues to be viewed dispassionately and as objectively as possible.
Office of Children’s Advocate wants more Assistance for NGOs that Serve Disabled Kids UncategorizedJune 15, 2007 Advertisements RelatedOffice of Children’s Advocate wants more Assistance for NGOs that Serve Disabled Kids RelatedOffice of Children’s Advocate wants more Assistance for NGOs that Serve Disabled Kids FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Office of the Children’s Advocate is calling for increased government assistance to non-government organizations (NGOs) that are involved in activities that impact the lives of vulnerable groups, such as children with disabilities.As stated in the office’s annual report for the period February 2006 to March 2007, which was tabled in the House of Representatives on June 12, many such NGOs are experiencing substantial reduction of aid from overseas agencies.The report also pointed to the need to expedite legislation to protect the rights of persons, especially children, who are living with disabilities.According to the report, “many children with disabilities are being denied their right to develop to their full potential [and] the need is particularly glaring in the case of children with mild to moderate disabilities, whose needs are largely being met by the under-funded non-governmental groups.”The report also called for the discriminatory practices against children living with HIV/AIDS to be addressed, adding that “children who are affected and infected by HIV/AIDS are experiencing some level of discrimination within their schools as well as their communities.”The document noted that as a result of insufficient psychosocial support for children and families impacted by HIV/AIDS, institutionalization is becoming an option for families.While there is no specific mention of children infected by HIV/AIDS or living with disabilities in the Child Care and Protection Act 2004, the Act applies to every child living in Jamaica. The Act is also supported by several policies and systems, such as the Ministry of Education and Youth’s National Policy for HIV/AIDS Management in Schools, which are aimed at maximizing the care and protection of children in Jamaica.

Renewing progress towards peace in South Sudan UK notes progress towards peace in South Sudan is “too slow and too limited” and calls on government to act in interests of its peopleUK expresses concern at levels of humanitarian crises and severe malnutrition and calls for Government to partner with donor communities and the UN to solve the crisisRemarks by Ambassador Jonathan Allen at the Security Council, 3 March 2021Thank you very much, Madam President. Let me begin by thanking Jackline Nasiwa for her briefing. And let me also take this opportunity to commend the outgoing SRSG, David Shearer. David, I and many others have seen over the years your genuine, personal and tireless commitment towards peace and stability in South Sudan. You have always put the people of South Sudan first. Members of this Council saw that first hand during our visit in 2019. This has been a distinguished tour of duty, and my country thanks you for your service.Madam President, twelve months on from the formation of the Revitalised Transitional Government of National Unity, I want to welcome the appointment of a unified Cabinet, Governors and Deputy Governors in all states. We hope that those appointed can deliver tangible improvements to people’s lives.South Sudan’s endorsement with a roadmap for implementing transitional justice mechanisms, including the Hybrid Court, is also welcome. And I urge the Government of South Sudan to expedite the memorandum of understanding with the African Union on the Hybrid Court.Madam President, whilst these steps are welcome, overall progress has been too slow and too limited. Time after time, this Council expresses its concerns and calls for action. Yet what we and the people of South Sudan continue to see is inaction on a number of issues. Power vacuums at local level have directly led to further suffering and civilian casualties. The Government needs to show the world that it’s serious about peace. As the next step, we call for South Sudan to complete the reconstitution of the Transitional National Legislative Assembly. We also call on the Government to ensure adequate training and resourcing of the Necessary Unified Forces. Such action does not require any easing of the arms embargo, but should the Government wish to submit exemption requests, they are free to do so for the consideration of the Sanctions Committee.Madam President, we must acknowledge that more people are in need of assistance than at any time since South Sudan’s independence nearly a decade ago. 8.3 million people are dependent on humanitarian assistance to survive. 60 percent of the population is facing crisis levels of food insecurity. 1.4 million children under the age of five face severe malnutrition in 2021 – that’s 10 percent of the entire population. We must do all we can to scale up the humanitarian response.The UK is giving over $175 million this year in response to needs in South Sudan, in addition to our large scale funding of COVAX, providing vaccines around the world. I want to remind Council members of the importance of our passing of UN Security Council Resolution 2565 and provisions within it calling for access to vaccines in conflict zones, which I hope will apply fully in South Sudan next year.Reporting from the UN Commission on Human Rights provides further devastating insight into the impact of conflict on civilians. Violence against civilians continues. Rape and starvation are used as weapons of war. Now is clearly not the time to downgrade the Human Rights Council’s oversight of the situation.The South Sudanese government needs to show it understands the severity of the plight of its people, to take responsibility and act in partnership with donor communities and the UN to solve the crisis. It should include full respect for the Status of Forces Agreement. And I want to state our unequivocal support for UNMISS and recognise the crucial protection role played by UNMISS.Madam President, one year on from the formation of a transitional government and almost 10 years from the creation of South Sudan, we have sadly little to applaud. We can say that it could be worse, but only because so often it has been worse. There are multiple systemic failings and sadly, the elite do not choose to put the interests of the people first. We need an approach which incentivises those elites to cooperate in the interests of all.I note that the representative of South Sudan has again today chosen not to participate in our meeting. Indeed, we have not seen him here for a year. I understand he has said he does not want to join us because he feels that his country is criticized in our meetings. It seems to me that if more time was spent by the leadership of South Sudan in listening to others rather than ignoring inconvenient voices, then things might improve.Madam President, we cannot let the systemic drift continue. With renewed effort from us all, including from the government and the politicians in South Sudan, substantial progress can be achieved. We should seize this opportunity so that when we meet again ahead of the 10 year anniversary of South Sudan’s independence, we – and more importantly, the people of South Sudan – can have something to celebrate.Thank you, Madam President. /Public Release.

Avaya and University of Colorado Announce Joint Research for Natural Language Speech Recognition Technology Avayas Grant will Drive New Communication Innovations within Enterprises and Educational Institutions Boulder, Colo. — Avaya Inc. (NYSE: AV), a global leader in corporate networking solutions and services, and the University of Colorado at Boulder today announced a joint research initiative to speed development of natural language speech recognition technology for self-paced training programs and other business applications. To fund this research, Avaya has donated $250,000 to the Universitys Center for Spoken Language Research (CSLR) and Alliance for Technology, Learning, and Society (ATLAS) initiative. The two university entities will work with local Avaya research and development experts in developing and testing new speech recognition technologies. The joint project will create a new generation of voice recognition tools that intelligently engage users with greater levels of verbal and visual perception. Avaya will work with CSLR to integrate the newly developed technology into its Customer Relationship Management solutions, creating a highly personalized and responsive customer experience. CU-Boulder students enrolled in the ATLAS Technology, Arts and Media program will assist in developing test strategies for the interactive training tools. In addition, CSLR will use a portion of the donation to create a toolkit that simplifies speech recognition application development and integration, making it easier to deploy and maintain speech-enabled CRM solutions within an enterprise environment. CSLR researchers, who include faculty from the fields of computer science, psychology and cognitive science, already have developed virtual tutors that incorporate facial animation, speech recognition and speech synthesis systems into a single software package. Under the leadership of Director Ron Cole, the center has received more than $5 million in grants from the National Science Foundation over the last three years for projects helping children with hearing impairments and reading disabilities. The Avaya grant will support research and development of future communication systems that allow the caller to take control of the conversation rather than simply responding to prompts produced by the computer. “The result is a much more natural and graceful interaction,” said Cole. “By developing more natural and graceful conversational interfaces through basic research, and testing these systems with Avaya’s help, we should be able to develop systems in the next few years that provide a more satisfying experience to Avaya’s customers.” “Avayas support increases CSLRs momentum to create natural language speech recognition technology that is useful for the enterprises most critical communicationcommunication with the customer,” said Ravi Sethi, president of Avaya Labs. “Avayas direction will help the speech technology bring value, efficiency and a greater overall experience to our customer interaction solutions.” Avayas CRM solutions utilize interactive voice response systems to help businesses automate many common enterprise interactions including fulfillment and e-commerce. Intelligent agents facilitate these interactions by mimicking the actions of a real person and behaving according to specific responses. The research project will expand the intelligent agents ability to interact with customers by developing natural language speech recognition that accurately detects auditory expressions and visual gestures in conversational interactions. The goal of CSLRs application toolkit development is to create new ways to make natural language speech recognition applications easier to write and easier to install, cutting development and integration costs for enterprises. Research and development experts from Avayas Westminster, Colorado-based facility will assist in the projects completion by working with the ATLAS program to test and evaluate tools that are developed. Researchers from the Department of Communication, the Department of Theatre and Dance, and the ATLAS evaluation research group also will investigate the social implications of interactive training tools. “This grant gives us a unique opportunity to collaborate with high-tech industry,” said Robert Schnabel of ATLAS. “Our students and faculty will have the opportunity to work on speech recognition innovations that create more advanced interaction abilities and help companies better connect with their customers.” About Avaya Avaya, headquartered in Basking Ridge, N.J., is a leading global provider of communications solutions and services that help businesses, government agencies and other institutions including more than 75 percent of the Fortune 500 excel in the customer economy.

Life News A Compendium of National & International PublicationsDr KM Cherian By EH News Bureau on March 16, 2020 Add Comment The book is a compilation of 191 international and national clinical articles and 103 national and international research articlesDr KM Cherian, Founder, Frontier Lifeline Hospital, Dr KM Cherian Heart Foundation recently released his book ‘A Compendium of National & International Publications.’ It reflects his surgical and scientific work published in various National and International journals which spans around his cardiac surgical career of close to 45 years in India. The book is a compilation of 191 international and national clinical articles and 103 national and international research articles. The book release also sought the presence of 40+ doctors, former colleagues and peers from the medical fraternity, as well.With the aim of science being to generate new and reliable knowledge, it is therefore important to be clear and precise while writing articles. Moreover, there should be no ambiguity and vagueness because the material published will be reviewed and read by other members of the scientific community.Commenting on the same, Dr Cherian said, “Publishing one’s work is the only way knowledge is disseminated in society. It is our duty to share our knowledge and experiences. This body of knowledge will be the foundation for further work on the same subject and therefore it has to be honest and accurate. Not all results will be positive but it’s important to document the facts faithfully because negative outcomes are results too and we can learn from them. In fact I wish to reproduce a brief extract from one of my surgical notes written in 1975 “the OT Notes of the RVOT resection” This should become a habit and like all habits it comes with regular practice.”Further adding to this, Dr Cherian said, “Writing cements all our thoughts, experiences and findings of a particular procedure and is our legacy for posterity. It will serve to stimulate, guide and possibly motivate the subsequent generations to search for answers that we have not yet found. As noted by all, I had surrendered my permanent residency in the US and Australia to come back and work for my country. For me, motivation comes from passion, which in turn resulted in the inception of Frontier Mediville. My work has encouraged me in instituting a Basic Research Park, otherwise I would have used my time, money, and effort in building another hospital or another medical college.”Dr Cherian has been the Honorary Surgeon to the President of India from 1990 to 1993 and has reportedly performed 48,000+ surgeries. He is the first Indian member of the American Association for Thoracic Surgery.
