He praised the quality of its service and said that by being located in the heart of the city centre, it “challenges the stigma around mental health”.“The conversation about mental health is growing. We are getting better at talking about it. We have accumulated the language and we now need to accumulate the understanding to start bridging that gap,” Cllr Butler commented.For more details on MyMind log onto NewsLocal NewsMore than 800 appointments at Limerick mental heatlhcare centreBy Alan Jacques – April 30, 2015 699 Facebook Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories Email RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Advertisementlast_img read more

The Bench of Acting Chief Justice Sanjay Yadav and Vijay Kumar Shukla was hearing the plea filed by Social organisation Bandhua Mukti Morcha concerning the difficulties faced by the labourers, who migrated from other states to MP during pandemic. The organisation sought a direction to the MP Government to grant relief to these labourers, who returned to MP after being rendered jobless during pandemic COVID-19 outbreak. In the reply filed by the State, it was submitted that about 740440 migrant labourers got registered during the pandemic and the Government has given employment to 44634 labourers. However, the Court was not satisfied by the chart produced by the State and its functionaries. Instead, the Court said that they are required to draw out a definite plan to rehabilitate these migrated labours so that they can earn their livelihood in their parent State. The Court directed the State to draw out a definite plan by next date along with status report qua other facilities which are being extended to the migrated labourers who have been identified for extending the benefit under respective schemes. The matter has been listed for further hearing in the week commencing 18.01.2021. Earlier in a momentous step, the Supreme Court (a Bench comprising of Justice Ashok Bhushan, S K Kaul and M R Shah) on 26th May took Suo Motu cognisance of the problems and miseries of migrant labourers who have been stranded in different parts of the country amid the Coronavirus-induced lockdown. Further, on 9th June the Supreme Court had passed a slew of directions and had asked all the States and UTs to identify stranded migrants and transport them back to native places On 12th May, the Gujarat High Court (a division bench comprising Justices J. B. Pardiwala and Ilesh J. Vora) had taken suo moto notice of the various news reports about the sufferings of migrant workers, daily wage earners and the poor people during the lockdown. It may be noted that considering the plight of migrant labourers who are without food, the Madras High Court in July 2020 had directed the State Government to provide ration supplies to migrant labourers, after satisfying that they are really migrant labourers, irrespective of whether they have ration cards or not. Significantly, the Central Government in September 2020 said in the Lok Sabha that it does not have any data on the number of migrants who died amid the Covid induced Lockdown. Three MPs— K. Navaskani, Suresh Narayan Dhanorkar and Adoor Prakash had asked whether the Government is aware that a number of migrant workers lost lives during their return to the hometown and if so, the details of the same, State-wise.

Firms ignoring corporate code on governance

Previous Article Next Article Almost a third of the UK’s top companies are not conforming to the newcombined code on corporate governance, according to a new report. The survey by Deloitte shows that 31 per cent of FTSE 350 companies arefailing to comply with a best practice proposal that requires at least halftheir board members to be independent non-executive directors (NEDs). Under the new code, which comes into force on 1 November and incorporatesthe recommendations on better corporate governance from Derek Higgs, companiesmust either comply with its requirements, or explain why they won’t. According to Deloitte, non-compliant businesses would have to appoint 126more NEDs to comply with the proposals, while a further 240 NEDs do not passthe independence criteria as they were appointed more than 10 years ago. Patricia Peter, corporate governance executive at the Institute ofDirectors, said the balance was moving in favour of independent NEDs, but thatthe process would take time. “The combined code never expected companies to make an immediate andwholesale change,” she said. “However, investors will not spend money with companies that choose toshow a blatant disregard for the code.” The report also shows that 30 per cent of FTSE 350 chairmen would fail theindependence tests, as they also act as executive directors. read more

Improvements to the accuracy of measurements of NO2 by zenith-sky visible spectrometers

first_imgVisible spectra of the zenith-sky were recorded at Faraday in Antartica during 1990. Line-of-sight NO2 amounts were deduced by fitting laboratory cross-sections to the spectra. A new procedure was used to determine the offset to the zero of the measurement from the measurement series itself. This offset includes the effect of the reference spectrum—a single reference was used for the whole data set—plus any instrumental or analytic artefacts. It is important to determine this offset to the zero because it affects the absolute calibration of the zero of the vertical amount of NO2. In the new procedure, offsets were determined from fits to plots of the measured line-of-sight NO2 vs calculated air-mass factors, whose curvature had been precomputed from model predictions rather than the straight-line fits of Langley plots. The resulting vertical NO2 amounts were significantly lower than those deduced using a more subjective determination of offset, particularly in the early spring when denitrification might be expected.last_img read more

Gold Coast developer offers Tesla battery-powered homes

first_imgBill Harrison and Joy Tragardh celebrate their move to Halcyon Greens with Halcyon project director Scott Ng.Sick of paying soaring power prices, semi-retired couple Bill Harrison and Joy Tragardh have “gone off-grid”.The couple are among the first residents to move in to Australia’s first-ever over-50s golf and residential community, Halcyon Greens, part of a $250 million masterplanned development at Pimpama.As a house-warning gesture, the couple were driven to their new Tesla battery-powered home in the northern Gold Coast suburb in a Tesla Model S.“Buying a Tesla-operated home makes a lot of sense,” Mr Harrison said.“As we looked further into the cost and environmental benefits of a Tesla-powered home, it reinforced that we made the right decision and we’re very happy and excited about moving in.”Ms Tragardh said the fact they were also able to purchase a home in a community with no exit fees was a major drawcard.Their neighbour, Barry Dempsey, also did his research before buying his environmentally-friendly home with the aim of achieving a more cost-effective lifestyle.“It’s great to move into a new house with space,” he said, after living in a caravan on a mate’s property.“I knew I wanted to live in an eco-friendly home and was looking at solar and wind-powered technology before I discovered the Tesla-powered homes on offer at Halcyon, and I was sold.“Halcyon offered exactly what I was looking for all in one package, plus I’ll be living on a golf course.
