Questions galore greet candidates on doorsteps

first_imgWhatsApp Twitter Advertisement NewsLocal NewsQuestions galore greet candidates on doorstepsBy admin – February 21, 2011 718 “WHEN are you resigning?”, “who and when will the potholes on that back road be fixed?” and “why wont the Gardai move the thugs hanging around at the end of the street and in the park?”. Just some of the burning questions being asked at the doors to the political canvassing armies that wear their shoe leather on the collective march to the Dail. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The man and woman on the street want to know what is going to happen to this country, its financial and economic future. But are they getting answers.James, who describes himself as a father of one in his late 20’s, from one of the “so called regeneration areas”, wants to know what will a new government do to secure his future. “I don’t even feel like voting because they make me so mad with their cars, highly paid jobs and golf dinners. I watch the news and read the papers like everyone else. Do they think they can get away with it all the time. If I carried on and did some of the things they were up to, I’d be in Mulgrave Street behind bars”. Focusing on more personal issues, James says: “Social welfare payments have been cut, the chance of jobs seems unlikely and the hole just looks to be getting bigger”.He seems to be the voice of many that indicate the levels of economic despair are on the increase. It is relevant and pertinent to Joe and Mary Bloggs who are struggling through life. Other questions and topics that remain top of the list include, government ministerial pensions and their worth, and who can fix the HSE, along with policy queries on funding for children with special needs? The IMF hits a chord with a few that are clued into the dynamics of economics and the fiscal reports and policies. The campaigns of the major players are hinging on who can renegotiate a better deal, but many wonder if the EU and the pen pushers behind the IMF funding will even consider sitting at the table to talk after the papers have been signed.Darragh, from the northside of the city, asks: “I want to know will you be travelling abroad on St. Patrick’s Day at my expense and what do you hope to achieve by it,” adding, “Why does the Dail get such long holidays and is it fair on the rest of us?”Quipping as to the chaos caused during the last two major weather freezes that the country has endured, Margaret, from the NCRd, wants to know if we “have enough salt and grit for the next cold snap?”In jest to an online question posted to the Limerick Post Facebook account, Limerick native Dawn Hogan, says she will say to canvassers: “How long will it take you to get away from my door?”And finally, an international flavour to one question fielded by this reporter linking our ex-pats from distant shores to home. Mark, an LIT graduate of the 90s and now based in Missouri in the United States, questions if consideration will ever be given to online voting or something to allow voters based abroad have some say at election time? Others disagree.The results of February 25 next might shed some light on few if not all of those questions.

Dinoflagellate cysts from the Marambio Group (Upper Cretaceous) of Humps Island

first_imgThirty samples from two sections on south-western Humps Island, James Ross Basin, northern Antarctic Peninsula, contain moderately diverse dinoflagellate cyst assemblages deposited in shallow shelf, open marine conditions. Assemblages contain common Isabelidinium spp., including I. cretaceum and I. pellucidum, Cerodinium diebelii, common Odontochitina spp., including O. operculata, O. porifera and O. spinosa, plus Nelsoniella cf. aceras, Octodinium askiniae and rare Chatangiella tripartita, C. victoriensis, Isabelidinium cf. belfastense and I. korojonense. This association includes species with Santonian and Campanian (to Maastrichtian) distribution in Australia and New Zealand. Some of these species may be recycled. A Campanian age is suggested for the Humps Island sections.last_img read more

A linear perturbation analysis of magnetopause motion in the Newton-Busemann limit

first_imgThe response of the magnetopause surface to time-varying solar wind dynamic pressure is examined. We argue that to a first approximation the magnetopause surface may be considered as analogous to an elastic membrane. Upon displacement from equilibrium resulting from a change in applied external pressure, it moves to a new equilibrium under the equation of motion of a forced, damped, simple harmonic oscillator. We derive this equation of motion by linearising for small perturbations the momentum equation for flow past a nonrigid ellipsoidal body in the Newton-Busemann limit. Though our approach is only an approximation to the real dynamics of the magnetopause boundary, it serves to demonstrate the importance of inertia in the system response. It allows us to estimate the natural eigenperiod of magnetopause oscillation as typically around 7 min, the precise value depending on solar wind conditions. However, the magnetopause eigenoscillation is furthermore found to be strongly damped, regardless of solar wind conditions. One consequence of these properties is that short-period fluctuations in the solar wind dynamic pressure elicit a suppressed magnetospheric response. We outline other theoretical expectations by which our model may be tested against observation, and discuss the implications of our findings for current interpretations of spacecraft observations made in the dynamic magnetopause environment.last_img read more

Bored this summer? Try… Bicester Village

first_imgLike reading Vogue? Shop for clothes at GAP and Next although you’d prefer to wear Karen Millen outfits? Sounds like massive desire suppression to me. Fortunately, Bicester Village might offer you a good outlet. A factory designer outlet in fact. What you find in Bicester Village is a cluster of 80 designer shops including Karen Millen, Max Mara and Bally selling last year’s fashion. And because it’s last year’s, it’s reduced by up to 60 percent. My favourite trophy was a Max Mara needle-striped navy suit for £250. That’s a lot of money, but it’s only about half as much as a comparable suit would have cost me in London. A trip to Bicester Village is easy to fit into a busy student’s schedule. It’s only 30 minutes away from Oxford by coach, with departures roughly every 30 minutes from Gloucester Green. Conveniently enough, it’s open 7 days a week: weekdays and Sundays from 10am to 6pm, Saturdays and Bank Holidays from 10am to 7pm. After all that shopping, you may feel you’ve saved enough money to treat yourself to a good Italian meal at Carluccio’s, or you might prefer a snack at Prêt à Manger. In case it all sounds too good, a word of caution. You cannot find decent GAP jeans anywhere in Bicester, or a couple of Next tops to go with them. If you are looking for clothes that simply keep your body warm, stay in Oxford. Bicester Village is more for those who treat fashion as the art of aesthetic self-expression without expressing the constraints of a student budget.ARCHIVE: 4th week TT 2004last_img read more


first_imgBayonne to re-submit bid as Gov. Christie recommends Newark for Amazon’s second headquartersNewark has been chosen by the governor’s office to be the state’s official recommendation for Amazon’s second headquarters. ROI-NJ reports Gov. Christie joined Senator Corey Booker and Newark Mayor Ras Baraka at the Rutgers Business School in Newark on Monday, October 16, announcing a $7 billion incentive package to lure the online retail giant.Cities such as Bayonne that are also planning proposals to Amazon can still make those proposals, but the bid would not come with the state’s official recommendation. The state will be responsible for designing incentives to lure the major online retailer.Mayor James Davis said that he will submit Bayonne’s proposal directly to the company. “Either way, at the end of the day, Amazon will be choosing.”Environmental remediation of Rutkowski Park underwayAfter Honeywell International was court-ordered to remediate a 34-acre chromium site in Jersey City in 2003, chromium was detected at Rutkowski Park in 2005. Now, Honeywell will perform an environmental remediation of the park, mainly along the Bayonne sewer pipeline between 48th and 52nd Streets. The process began in early October with site surveys, but the company will soon begin excavating some areas of the park. The city will plant some new vegetation and replace the dug-up asphalt along the walkway. Some sections of the park will be closed for a limited period of time. Gateway project breaks ground in KearnyU.S. Senator Robert Menendez was on hand for the cutting of a ribbon that will reconstruct a key bridge as part of a larger Gateway rail tunnel system.A key element of the new Gateway rail tunnel broke ground in Kearny on Oct. 13 when Gov. Christopher Christie joined U.S. Senators Robert Menendez and Cory Booker as well as other officials.The Portal North Bridge is a $20 million portion of the larger Gateway project, and will raise the height of the bridge in order to accommodate trains along the Northeast Corridor. This is the first leg of a larger project that will have new tunnels dug through the Palisades and under the Hudson River to provide more up-to-date tunnels. The current tunnel system, which was damaged in Superstorm Sandy in 2012, will be rebuilt after the new tunnel system is complete.“The replacement of the aging Portal Bridge is the first step toward ensuring a sound and efficient rail transportation system that will serve millions of riders now and well into the future,” Christie said.Of the $20 million needed for this project, $16 million is expected to come from the Transportation Investment Generating Income Recovery grant program. The New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund contributed the remaining $4 million.Phone scammers posing as police officers, targeting seniorsHudson County Sheriff Frank Schillari is issuing a warning to local citizens about a telephone scam that is targeting local residents, particularly senior citizens.The Sheriff’s Office has received complaints from residents who report that someone claiming to be a police deputy has called them and requested money in order to avoid arrest for Jury Duty violations or other outstanding warrants. These calls first started popping up in Essex, Morris, and Bergen counties and have now spread to Jersey City and Hudson County.Other callers have told residents that they owe back taxes and face arrest if the amount isn’t paid. Phone scammers are asking victims to retrieve money on a money card, which is a prepaid credit card. After initially asking to meet them at a certain location, scammers will then ask them to just give the money card information over the phone.Some have even referred to a captain or other officer to make the call appear legitimate.“I want to make it clear to all Hudson County residents that our office does not make such calls,” said Sheriff Schillari. “Our department is working diligently to find these scam artists who victimize working people and seniors and bring them to justice. We ask all residents to be on alert and let us know if they receive a call like this. People should be extremely careful about sharing any personal information on the telephone with someone whom they do not know.”Anyone with further information about these calls or to report receiving one is asked to contact the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office at (201) 369-4330.RWJ Barnabas Health donates $10,000 to Puerto Rican relief fundRWJBarnabas Health has donated $10,000 to the American Red Cross New Jersey Region for the Hurricane Maria Relief Fund for Puerto Rico, sponsored by Sen.

Recently, Mayor Davis and Assemblymen Nicholas Chiaravalloti (D-31) and John Wisniewski (D-19) met with representatives from the Staten Island Economic Development Corporation (SIEDC) to discuss the project and how to advance it to the next phase –an engineering and feasibility study for the system.“The City of Bayonne is always looking for innovative ways to improve our mass transit and when the SIEDC presented this idea to me I was intrigued. Thanks to their flexibility and adaptability, aerial gondolas really do present the next frontier of regional transit for the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area and are ideal for an urban environment such as Bayonne” said Mayor Davis.SIEDC initiated the gondola effort over two years ago with the idea of connecting Staten Island to the rest of the region via an aerial cableway. During that time, SIEDC has conducted significant research and developed a network of supporters that believe the project is not only feasible – but essential. The addition of Mayor Davis to the list of supporters is a significant step forward for the project.According to Cesar Claro, President and CEO of the SIEDC “SIEDC is thrilled that Mayor Davis has signed on to support this effort. Staten Island and Bayonne share a number of economic and transportation similarities and we look forward to a prosperous partnership focused on how our communities can work in tandem to create a long-term and mutually beneficial relationship.”SIEDC recently conducted a global design competition to determine the best system type, ideal route and proposed cost for the aerial gondola. Leitner-Poma of America and their Staten Island to Bayonne route was selected as the winner which would connect Elm Park on Staten Island to Bayonne. The estimated cost for the project would be $62 million and estimated ridership is as high as 4,000 people per hour during peak periods.Assemblyman Nicholas Chiaravalloti noted that “Hudson County has been the economic engine of New Jersey. Part of our strength is our commitment to mass transit such as buses, ferries and light rail. As we look to the future, the potential development of an aerial gondola is a natural fit.”Mayor Davis’ support is critical in advancing the engineering study which will include information related to vehicular traffic changes, connectivity opportunities to mass transit, enhancements of services for commuters, residents and tourists. There are also opportunities for catalytic development in the neighborhoods surrounding the stations.Assemblyman John Wisniewski, Chairman of the NJ Assembly Transportation Committee, who helped organize the meeting added “By virtue of our geography, New Jersey has always served as a vital link in the movement of people and goods along the East Coast. The proposed Bayonne – Staten Island Aerial Gondola is an innovative and low cost way to link communities and people. I believe we should embrace the future of transportation and economic development than by linking Staten Island and Bayonne with this reliable, cost-effective and modern means of transport”Hudson County CASA is seeking volunteersLearn how to become a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer and help foster children find safe and permanent homes.

Seven works of art unveiled on streets in downtown BayonneOn Thursday, October 12, local artists and City officials unveiled a series of seven works of art that are located on utility boxes and former fire alarm boxes between 5th Street and 9th Street. The art program is administered by Bayonne’s Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ).Speaking at a gathering at the Bridge Art Gallery, Mayor Davis thanked all of the artists for their work. He also pointed to the growing popularity of the arts in the community. He cited the large crowds at Bayonne’s Summer Sounds concert series as proof of the increasing support for the arts in Bayonne. Mayor Davis said that “talented and theatrical people are here. All they needed was for someone to say, ‘Express yourself.’” Mayor Davis described Bayonne as “a special place, and that it’s going to become even more special.” He said, “We are Bayonne. We can say it with pride again.” He concluded his remarks by saying, “We have a lot more work to do.”UEZ Coordinator Terrence Malloy thanked the Hudson County Division of Cultural and Heritage Affairs for funding the art program. Koren Frankfort, the Acting Director of that division, credited Bayonne resident Bill LaRosa, the former Director of Cultural and Heritage Affairs, for his enthusiastic support for the utility box art. She congratulated gallery owner Cheryl Mack and the participating artists for the work they have done in Bayonne.Malloy credited Jersey City’s Central Avenue Improvement District for developing the idea for utility box art in a commercial area. He thanked the UEZ staff and BCB Community Bank for helping to make the program possible. Malloy expressed gratitude to Verizon for allowing art to be painted on some of its utility boxes, and to Conrail for allowing a mural to be painted on its railroad overpass property.Citing the role of Mayor Jimmy Davis, Malloy said that it took “a person of vision to turn Bayonne around.” Malloy described art and music as being part of that vision. In the near future, Malloy said, the art portion of Mayor Davis’s vision will be expanded to include more utility box art and statues in commercial areas.A crowd of about 100 went with City officials and artists for the unveilings of each new work of street art. There were seven works of art on utility boxes and decommissioned fire alarm boxes.1) A painting by Tiffany Dancy called Dance of a Beautiful Friendship graces a utility box at 5th Street and Broadway.2) A painting by Jeff Ware (also known as Klone Killa) called Day Glow Djinn’s covers an old fire alarm box at 7th Street and Broadway.3) A painting by Maria Lupianez depicts a little girl holding a popsicle. That painting is featured on a utility box at Broadway and Cottage Street.4) A second painting, Serenity Now, by Jeff Ware (also known as Klone Killa) brightens an old fire alarm box at Broadway and Cottage Street.5) Aquarium, a painting by Gary Wynans, depicts fish on a utility box on Cottage Street.6) A photographic painting by Stephanie Petersendepicts a locomotive in front of the old 8th Street Station. That painting is located on a utility box at 8th Street and Broadway.7) The Archway, a painting by Samantha Llanes, depicts local buildings. It is painted on a utility box at 9th Street and Broadway.The art project also includes a new mural by Billy Zyblut on a railroad overpass. The Zyblut work serves as a welcoming gateway to the Bergen Point neighborhood. His new mural replaced an advertisement for the Burger King restaurant that used to be located in the 8th Street neighborhood.NJ loses federal funding to expand healthcare enrollmentA new report released Wednesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that New Jersey will lose more than 60 percent of the federal funding it expected to receive this year to help enroll vulnerable people in health insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act. The cuts are part of $26 million in reductions at the national level that are scheduled to go into effect in September, 2018.Novelist offers one-shot writing class to get your story onto paperDo you have a piece of writing, or an idea for a piece of writing (memoir, novel, script), and you need feedback on it or ideas on how to get it published?
