#BREAKING TD arrested and brought to Limerick Prison

first_imgShannondoc operating but only by appointment Print Email First Irish death from Coronavirus Facebook Advertisement Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up INDEPENDENT TD Mick Wallace has been arrested in Dublin this Wednesday morning over non payment of a court fine and he is currently being held at Limerick Prison.The Wexford TD was previously convicted and fined for breaching the grounds of Shannon airport during a protest last year.As the €2,000 fine remained outstanding this week, a penal warrant issued for the arrest of the outspoken TD and he was taken into custody at Clontarf garda station this Wednesday morning.Mr Wallace, who was dressed in his usual pink shirt, was arrested last year during a protest over US authorities using Shannon as a stopover for missions to the Middle East.Ennis Court gave Mr Wallace until July to pay the fine.Dublin TD Clare Daly, who was also involved in the protest at Shannon Airport, received a similar fine.At the time of the court appearance, Mr Wallace said that their decision to go over the fence was not to break the law, “but to help keep the peace”.He said that they did not accept the judge’s decision “and under no circumstances will we pay the fines. We realise this may mean serving time in prison. It’s not something we’d look forward to, but if it happens, so be it”.Upon arrival, Mr Wallace will be processed through the prisoner system at the Mulgrave Street jail and his duration there will depend on the nature of the offence and the length of time to be served for defaulting on the payment of the fine, the population figures at the prison and any orders that may be granted giving him temporary release.It is understood that these decisions will be made by the Governor or senior prison officials.The length of time that the Wexford TD will stay in custody is as yet unclear as Limerick Prison is currently running 105 per cent of its bed capacity according to the latest prison population figures.

Gala raises more than $29K By Jaine Treadwell Skip Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Latest Stories Published 8:56 pm Monday, February 23, 2009 By The Penny Hoarder “This year’s support further demonstrates that the community is behind us and is convinced that what we do at the Colley Senior Complex is important,” Motes said.The funds raised by the Mardi Gras Gala and silent auction make up about 70 percent of the Colley Senior Complex’s program budget.“The other 30 percent of what we budget for programs comes from other fundraisers, donations and the funds that we get from the Pike County Commission,” Motes said. “The city of Troy pays our capital costs and we are very appreciative of the support that we get from the city, the community and these agencies.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Motes also expressed appreciation to Troy Health and Rehabilitation Center, Troy University and Pfizer Pharmaceutical for monetary contributions and to Horn Beverage for its continuing support.“And, we have to thank the seven Krewes and the 130 people who made up those Krewes,” Motes said. “They raised a huge portion of the 29,000-plus dollars.

Woman gives fiance suprise wedding on birthday

first_imgKsenia Pro Photography(TYSONS CORNER, Va.) — One soon-to-be bride wanted to give her future husband a birthday gift he would never forget.Rachel O’Neil, a plastic surgery consultant and mother of two, surprised fiancé Dave Kochba with a birthday party that quickly evolved into their wedding.The couple ended their night at the altar, reading their vows in front of a marquee that spelled out the word “Love.”“I knew that the next person I wanted to marry had to be someone I truly loved and was compatible with,” O’Neil told “GMA.”The most shocking part is how this super bride beautifully orchestrated the wedding almost entirely by herself, without Kochba discovering her year-long plan.O’Neil used therapy appointments as a key component in her plan. Therapy not only gave her an excuse to go out and plan the wedding, but it also helped her obtain the marriage license. She was able to convince Kochba to sign it as part of her treatment, claiming that it would help her get over her fear of commitment after having previously been married.The significance did not occur to Kochba at the time.Ditto for all the guests who came for a surprise birthday party — but weren’t sure what to expect with the invitation hinting, “You won’t want to miss the big surprise birthday reveal.”“I had no idea she was planning this, however she has always been a lover of big birthday parties,” Kochba said.O’Neil said that her love for them came from her adoptive mother and the effort she put into their special days.O’Neil decided to plan a surprise wedding to take away some of the overwhelming stress that comes with a traditional ceremony. Kochba had also been previously married, and the pair had agreed to take their time when it came to their engagement and planning their nuptials.“Rachel completely took care of every detail,” Kochba said. “There was no overwhelming feelings or stress, it was just a time where we celebrated us.”After announcing their engagement, O’Neil suffered an accident that resulted in a broken ankle. Although she said it was “one of the toughest experiences” she had ever been through, she also was grateful for the opportunity to see who her soon-to-be husband really was.“If he is going to take on the role of helping me take care of my kids, not complain, and drive me to and from work everyday for a few months, I knew I had to tie this guy down,” she said. “He obviously was staying no matter what.”That’s when O’Neil knew that he was the one for her. She and her daughters, Alexis and Carly, put their heads together to plan the best wedding they could imagine.O’Neil explained that the key was to make sure “David felt that this wedding represented him as well, by intertwining different elements of David throughout the event.”Other than O’Neil’s two daughters, the only person who knew about the plan was David’s sister, Dana Kochba, who helped with guests’ contact info.Even the planners and vendors were surprised by the unexpected turn of events.“We didn’t know until minutes before, when the officiant came,” said Sugar Taylor and Nar Hovnanian of Taylor and Hov, the firm that planned the rest of the party. “We thought she was in the wrong place. Thankfully, she knew where she needed to be. She was the surprise guest.”As family and friends enjoyed the birthday celebration, O’Neil’s plan began to materialize.Kochba, dressed for a Washingtonian event at the Entyse Bistro at the Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner, Virginia, knew that his life was about to change when O’Neil’s daughters gave a moving speech in front of everyone.“I did everything I could to hold it together and try not to cry,” Kochba said. “At the end of Lexie’s speech, she called me dad. It was truly touching and heart-warming to know that she basically feels like I am a father figure in her life.”As everyone was taking in the girls’ beautiful words, O’Neil slipped back in and prepared for her debut.O’Neil and Kochba’s favorite song — “Speechless” by Dan + Shay — started playing, and the wedding ceremony took place.“It was exactly what she wanted it to be,” Taylor and Hov said. “The event went very smoothly. It wasn’t a traditional wedding. It was just their moment where they wanted to be married.”Leading up to the big day, Kochba might not have caught on to the therapy trips, the weird conversations, the signing of the marriage license or even the “would you rather” games that O’Neill played with him to get information for the wedding.But what Kochba did understand was that O’Neil was the one for him.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

HF-radar observations of the dayside magnetic merging rate: A Geospace Environment Modeling boundary layer campaign study

first_imgGoose Bay HF-radar data have been used to determine the dayside reconnection electric field which transports energy from the solar wind into the Earth’s magnetosphere and ionosphere. The speed of the ionospheric plasma flow perpendicular to the open/closed boundary is determined in the rest frame of the boundary along each of the 16 beam directions of the HF radar. The observations were made during one of the Geospace Environment Modeling program’s boundary layer campaigns. The period from 1200 to 1600 UT on March 29, 1992, was one of generally southward interplanetary magnetic field (IMF). The y component of the IMF was negative for most of the time. Despite the generally steady IMF conditions, the merging rate observed by the radar shows a great deal of temporal structure. The radar observations have been compared with the results from the assimilative mapping of ionospheric electrodynamics (AMIE) procedure. Initially, the merging inferred from the radar observations accounts for a significant portion of the total polar cap potential drop, suggesting that a majority of the potential drop was generated within the radar field of view and must therefore be due to magnetic merging at the magnetopause. At the end of the period, however, the potential drop derived from the radar measurements is distinctly less than that derived from the AMIE procedure. At that time, however, satellite and ground magnetometer data show that a substorm was in progress, and there is substantial evidence for a strong nightside contribution to the polar cap potential drop. An additional feature that appears in this data set is that the orientation of the open/closed magnetic field separatrix with respect to magnetic latitude is well correlated to the y component of the IMF.last_img read more

Hunters beats ‘difficult’ market by attracting more successful independents to its network

CEO Glynis Frew earned £112,000 last year and received a bonus of £49,000 while Harry Hill and Kevin Hollinrake, who is also an MP, earned £54,000 and £59,000 respectively.“We are delighted to report a robust set of figures, despite subdued the market conditions,” says Chairman Kevin Hollinrake (left).“This performance highlights the robustness of our model and the quality and commitment of our franchisees and their teams across the network.“We would expect this current market and recently announced additional regulatory requirements to provide us with even more opportunities to expand our branch network and strengthen our market position still further.”Glybnis Frew Kevin Hollinrake Hunters valuation tool April 12, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Could a new German fees law finally give Purplebricks a break?

first_imgPurplebricks may be struggling to get over 5% market share in the UK and have failed to break into the US and Australia, but its German venture could prove the final vindication of its hybrid agency model.This week the German parliament passed legislation requiring both buyers and sellers to split selling agents’ fees between them.This is designed to encourage greater competition among agents on fees, dropping a major bombshell on the country’s property industry.Until now German estate agents have charged up to 7.4%, helping make moving home in Germany very expensive for vendors.A €300,000 home usually attracts fees of between €18,000 and €21,420 depending on the agent.Hybrid expansionThe new law has been prompted, in part, by the rise in cut-price online-only and hybrid agencies and in particular, Homeday.Its majority shareholders are Purplebricks and German media giant Axel Springer, which between them have invested some €40 million in its operation.Using a model almost identical to Purplebricks’, Homeday entered the market in 2014 with a flat 3.9% sales fee, significantly undercutting traditional agents.Homeday’s co-founder and CEO Steffen Wicker (pictured above, middle) told German trade website Refire: “We’re expecting that in the medium term there’ll be more competition in the market, which will benefit both buyers and sellers.“That’s long overdue, given the high additional purchase costs associated with property buying in Germany. We’re expecting commissions over the coming two years to fall by up to 30%.”Homeday could do with the boost; it lists approximately 600 properties for sale in Germany, compared to the 4,000 or so being sold by the country’s biggest agent, Engel and & Volkers, and has 200 brokers and 200 employees.steffen Wicker engel & volkers Homeday Purplebricks January 19, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Cornish bakery Prima opens D2C Homebake Hub

first_imgCornwall-based wholesale business Prima Bakeries has opened a new shop selling its frozen products direct to consumers.The Homebake Hub offers frozen goods to bake at home, including the bakery’s Cornish pasties, croissants and sausage rolls.Open now, the retail space is located at Prima’s base near Redruth in Cornwall, where it also has a shop selling baked pastries, groceries and sandwiches.Driven by consumer behaviour during the coronavirus pandemic and the home baking boom, the hub will operate alongside the bakery shop and existing wholesale operations.The business produced more than 25 pallets-worth of frozen unbaked pasty stock in March, ready for summer, the company said.“When lockdown started, all our foodservice clients had to close and we weren’t sure we’d get a summer season, so we decided to do a special offer in our existing shop on our frozen ‘home-bake’ pasty. We’ve sold nearly 70,000 of them since,” said Mark Norton, managing director of Prima Bakeries.Due to the success of the special offer, Prima Bakeries has recruited five new pasty production staff in the last six weeks.“I believe this home-bake frozen pasty market is here to stay and this is why we’re investing in a second shop on our site at Scorrier that will focus on selling our frozen products. Those customers who are less keen to go out or eat out will still be able to enjoy our delicious freshly baked pasties at home.”Businesses have been pivoting operations to reach consumers in lockdown, including Utter Waffle and Bakerdays.last_img read more
