He was rested by coach Thomas Tuchel after taking a minor knock to his knee against Guingamp.“There was a clash of knees and he felt some pain in the knee. He wasn’t free in his movements,” Tuchel said after the Amiens game. “It was too risky (to play him).

Govt mulls toll for drivers using Amaila Fall access road

first_imgWhile a road user’s agreement was in place that allowed Government to recoup money from operators, who damaged hinterland roads, more direct charges are being contemplated, targeted at sustaining a steady flow of cash for road maintenance.This is the case at least with the Amaila Falls road, which is located in Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni). At a recent post-Cabinet press conference, Infrastructure Minister David Patterson zoomed in on Australian mining company Troy Resources.“The primary user of the road, obviously, would be Troy Resources. There are some other miners that would use the road. We’ll be looking to have a road-users agreement to charge users to ensure that we can get the funds to maintain it.”“It is in a reasonably passable condition at the moment. No one is maintaining or regulating it at the moment,” Patterson added. “But we’re looking to put in the road users agreement shortly.”A section of the Amaila Falls access roadIt was only a few days ago that plans were announced to fix the already deplorable Linden-Lethem trail, one of those roads rendered almost impassable partly by heavy-duty transit. In fact, it was pointed out that, almost daily, vehicles are overturning along the trail, with the most recent incident being last week.Commuters had complained bitterly about the condition of the roads, and had called on Government to intervene and repair the sections that are almost impassable. More recently, small operators have called on authorities to suspend heavy-duty vehicles from traversing the trail, since those vehicles are further damaging the roads.The Public Infrastructure Ministry has in the past complained about the “significant” sums of monies that have been expended in the hinterland regions for the rehabilitation of roadways. It had previously cited the $54.5 million was spent in 2016 to repair the Puruni-Itaballi corridor. Furthermore, in 2017, $100 million was allocated to improve the Puruni-Pappishou corridor.The Ministry had said that its efforts are being counteracted by operators of private mining or mining-related businesses, who choose to use overladen trucks on the roads and engage in other forms of misuse.They had also pointed out that the misuse of these roads is in contravention of the Road Users’ Agreement with the Guyana Gold and Diamond Miners Association (GGDMA), the Public Infrastructure Ministry, and the Natural Resources Ministry.“While the agreement notes that the Government of Guyana will use its best efforts to keep the road maintained in good condition at all times, road users must play their part by adhering to stipulations such as the prohibition of vehicles weighing more than 60 tons crossing Itaballi-Puruni bridges. Additionally, the agreement notes that users shall be liable to Government for any damage to Government’s property caused by the negligent use of the roadways by their employees and/or their agents.”last_img read more

MCHUGH WELCOMES BREAKTHROUGH IN NEGOTIATIONS FOR SMALL FISHERMEN

first_imgDonegal TD Joe McHugh has welcomed agreement between the European Council and the European Parliament, which is expected to allow for the establishment from Jan 1st 2013 of a new gillnet lesser spotted dogfish fishery for inshore fishermen in Area VIa of Irish waters.Speaking to www.DonegalDaily.com on Friday, Deputy McHugh said “This week there has been agreement between the European Council and the European Parliament on transitional technical measures, to allow for the establishment in Area VIa (northwest) of Irish waters, of a new gillnet fishery for lesser spotted dogfish, and for a new jigging fishery for saithe. “On foot of the the agreement that has been reached, these new fisheries are expected to be formally approved shortly by the European Council and the European Parliament, and both fisheries should commence from the beginning of next year,” he said.He added that this breakthrough in negotiations between European governments means that there is agreement for small inshore fishermen in Area VIa to catch lesser spotted dogfish using gillnets of mesh size greater than 90mm (3.5 inches), provided that the gillnets are deployed within 3 nautical miles of the coastline and for a maximum of 10 days per calendar month.Other conditions will include maximum gillnet length of gillnet of 1,000m; maximum soak time of 24 hours; and that at least 70% of the catch be made up of lesser spotted dogfish. This new fishery will be exclusive to Area VIa.“I have been campaigning for the opening of this fishery for small inshore fishermen in Area VIa since 2009, when I first proposed the creation of a lesser spotted dogfish fishery for Area VIa. I commend Minister Coveney and his Department officials along with BIM and the Marine Institute who have been working hard on this issue at both EU, national and local levels, and for the great progress that has been made to-date. “Lesser spotted dogfish is not edible for humans, but is usable as bait for crab fishing and lobster fishing. Some fishermen are importing lesser spotted dogfish at for bait at a cost of upwards on €200 a day, which is an enormous expense.“Subject to the approval of the EU Council of Ministers and of the European Parliament, this new fishery will potentially create a new mini bait industry for hard-pressed inshore fishermen, enabling Irish crab and lobster fishermen to source bait locally.”MCHUGH WELCOMES BREAKTHROUGH IN NEGOTIATIONS FOR SMALL FISHERMEN was last modified: November 9th, 2012 by StephenShare 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:fishermenJoe McHughlast_img read more

Old fallout shelters signs of bygone Cold War era

first_imgGLENDALE – The fallout shelter sign is still up in a hallway at the Glendale courthouse, but call it a sign of the times that the basement shelter now stores files instead of food rations and emergency supplies. A reminder of a period in the Cold War when air raid sirens could any minute announce an incoming nuclear attack, the sign is a historical relic – since the shelter itself has been all but forgotten. “Knowing today what I know about atom bombs and all that, no one would have survived down there,” said Administrative Assistant Mary Rhoads, an overseer of the Glendale courthouse. Dating from when the building at 600 E. Broadway was built in 1958, the shelter has been used for storage since well before Rhoads got to the courthouse seven years ago. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 The former shelter looks much like any basement would, with exposed pipes, boxes stacked on top of each other and shelves lining the walls. A court employee one day stuck a paper sign on the door to a maintenance crawl space, mistakenly identifying that as the nuclear shelter, not knowing that the basement itself was the shelter. “I was raised in the 1950s here in Los Angeles, so I was definitely very aware of the Cold War and I remember going to grammar school with someone who had one of those fallout shelters in their backyard,” Rhoads said. Fallout shelters became especially popular after the 1962 Cuban missile crisis, when President John F. Kennedy ordered the Soviet Union to remove nuclear missiles it had secretly installed in Cuba, said Arlene Vidor, president of the Glendale Historical Society. Vidor remembers air raid sirens that were regularly tested when she was growing up in Chicago, and the fear such exercises caused. “Scared to death, looking up at the sky all the time, waiting for the big one,” she said. Another former nuclear shelter was just blocks away at the Carlos J. Moorhead Post Office, at 313 E. Broadway. “Since I live up in Foothill, I said, boy, that’s a long way to run in a nuclear war,” said handyman Paul Wilson, 49, who toured the post office shelter in the 1970s with schoolmates. The post office dates from 1934, but the basement shelter was built in the late 1940s, said postmaster Lisa Ball. Food and items such as toilet paper were stored in the shelter, but the last time it was stocked appears to have been 1963 because that was the date on supply boxes found there. The post office was renovated after the 1994 Northridge Earthquake, and in 1998 some boxed crackers were found. A supervisor who has since retired gave the crackers a taste. “Pretty stale, but they weren’t that bad,” Ball said. Some parts of the post office basement have windows open to the outside, while other parts have thick walls and no windows. Equipment is stored in the basement and part of it is used for a training room. “I don’t know if something happened today if we would be able to use it,” Ball said. Officials said the shelter at the Glendale courthouse is definitely out of service. But the fallout shelter sign in the hallway will stay. “That sign’s been there and I’m not going to take it down, because I think it’s a little bit of history,” Rhoads said.

Grokster faces the music, shuts down

first_img Glickman said Grokster will send anti-piracy messages to existing users, and the company is forbidden from maintaining its software or network. “Without those services, the system will degrade over time,” Glickman said. Grokster lost an important Supreme Court ruling in June. Justices ruled that the entertainment industry can file piracy lawsuits against technology companies caught encouraging customers to steal music and movies over the Internet. The decision, which gave a green light for the federal case to advance in Los Angeles, significantly weakened lawsuit protections for companies that had blamed illegal behavior on their own customers rather than the technology that made such behavior possible. The court said Grokster and another firm, Streamcast Networks Inc., can be sued because they deliberately encouraged customers to download copyrighted files illegally so they could build a larger audience and sell more advertising. Writing for the court, Justice David H. Souter said the companies’ “unlawful objective is unmistakable.” “They’re out of business,” said Charles Baker, a lawyer for Streamcast. “It’s over for them. There was a lack of desire to continue to fight this thing going forward.” Baker said the settlement does not affect Streamcast, the co-defendant in the entertainment industry’s lawsuit. The Supreme Court noted as evidence of bad conduct that Grokster and Streamcast made no effort to block illegal downloads, which the companies maintained wasn’t possible. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Grokster’s Web site was changed Monday to say its existing file-sharing service was illegal and no longer available. “There are legal services for downloading music and movies,” the message said. “This service is not one of them.” The head of the Recording Industry Association of America, Mitch Bainwol, described the settlement as “a chapter that ends on a high note for the recording industry, the tech community and music fans and consumers everywhere.” It was unclear whether Grokster can afford to pay the $50 million in damages required under the agreement. The head of the Motion Picture Association of America, Dan Glickman, said the entertainment industry would demand full payment unless Grokster satisfies all its obligations under the settlement. Grokster’s brand will survive. The new fee-based version of its software will be available within 60 days, according to one executive involved in the deal. This executive spoke only on condition of anonymity because the sale of Grokster’s assets is pending. Grokster’s decision was not expected to affect Internet users who already run the company’s file-sharing software to download music and movies online, nor was it expected to affect users of rival downloading services, such as eDonkey, Kazaa, BitTorrent and others. WASHINGTON – Grokster Ltd., which lost a Supreme Court fight over file-sharing software used for stealing songs and movies online, agreed Monday to shut down and pay $50 million to settle piracy complaints by Hollywood and the music industry. The surprise settlement permanently bans Grokster from participating, directly or indirectly, in the theft of copyrighted files and requires the company to stop giving away its software, according to court papers. Executives indicated plans to launch a legal, fee-based “Grokster 3G” service before year’s end under a new parent company, believed to be Mashboxx of Virginia Beach, Va. Mashboxx, headed in part by former Grokster president Wayne Rosso, already has signed a licensing agreement with Sony BMG Music Entertainment. “It is time for a new beginning,” Grokster said in a statement issued from its corporate headquarters in the West Indies. last_img read more
