The cells are to remain at the existing station.There are around 350 garda personnel in the district, which includes Henry Street, Mayorstone and Mary Street stations.Plans are also in place to relocate Limerick District Court to a more secure location in the city, and while a Henry Street site had been widely mooted, the likelihood now is that it will be built on a vacant space in Mulgrave Street, and close to the prison.

NPR Winner Naia Izumi Performs Tiny Desk Concert Ahead Of National Tour [Watch]

first_imgNPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series is, without a doubt, one of the most entertaining series on the Internet. With big-name acts like Tedeschi Trucks Band, Trey Anastasio, Thundercat, and Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals being some of our favorites that have taken over the mini space, we trust and believe in whatever talent the NPR folks put before our eyes. The annual Tiny Desk Contest brought us Tank and The Bangas in 2017, and this year, chose Naia Izumi as the winner out of 5,000 applicants. The team of judges included past Tiny Desk contest winner Tarriona “Tank” Ball, Tiny Desk alum Sylvan Esso and Gaby Moreno, along with a team of NPR staff. Since winning NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series, Naia traveled to Washington, D.C. to play his own Tiny Desk concert, as you can see in the video below.As NPR’s Bob Boilen wrote about Naia Izumi:Naia was chosen after we reviewed nearly 5,000 video entries. And the talent that came to us through all those submissions was astonishing. Naia Izumi won us over with his mind-boggling and unique style of guitar playing — a combination of tapping on the fingerboards and soul-filled whammy bar-note bending. And his multi-octave singing range blended so eloquently with his guitar stylings.For his NPR Tiny Desk debut, Naia Izumi performed a trio of originals: “Soft Spoken”, “As It Comes”, and “Soul Gaze”. About the first song of Naia’s performance, NPR noted: “Its title was originally ‘Soft Spoken Woman’ and, as we later learned, Naia had identified as a woman for nearly seven years. More recently, as he said in an interview with Washingtonian Magazine, ‘I’m not into that anymore because I just want to relax with biology and be comfortable with what I have’.”Typically a one-man show, Naia brought along bassist Adam Matijasevic and drummer Kynwyn Sterling to assist him on the NPR Tiny Desk concert performance. From here, Naia will head out on the road with Lagunitas Brewing Company for a 10-city national tour with some of NPR’s favorite local contest entrants. Tour details are forthcoming.Watch Naia Izumi’s official Tiny Desk concert below:[Video: NPR]Check out Naia Izumi’s entry video:[Video: NPR]last_img read more

Guaidó Leads on Venezuela’s COVID-19 Response

first_imgBy Noelani Kirschner/ShareAmerica May 14, 2020 While the Nicolás Maduro regime lies to the public about Venezuela’s confirmed coronavirus cases and its hospitals’ preparedness, Interim President Juan Guaidó and the National Assembly are taking a transparent and truthful leadership role in the COVID-19 response.“Information is a key element to face the pandemic,” Guaidó said on Twitter. “Venezuela is in our hands.”Guaidó and the National Assembly released on April 9 a free and accessible online platform to help Venezuelans diagnose their symptoms and connect them with medical health professionals.Anyone experiencing virus-like symptoms can send a message through WhatsApp, receive a link to a survey about their symptoms and be put in touch with a medical professional who will provide medical advice and suggest next steps.On April 12, the National Assembly issued a new WhatsApp number, denouncing the Maduro regime’s attempts to hack the first one. But the National Assembly noted that, before closing, the first line had received more than 20,000 visits in just three days.“The attack on this tool represents an attack on the Venezuelan people, who are entitled to know the truth,” the National Assembly said in a statement.Guaidó and the National Assembly will continue to work with international aid organizations to help Venezuelans receive supplies during the COVID-19 crisis. They are also releasing, in conjunction with a team of doctors, scientifically researched information about COVID-19 to keep the public updated.“Venezuela is one of the most vulnerable countries to an outbreak of coronavirus because of the complex humanitarian emergency that we have denounced for years,” Guaidó said in a video on the National Assembly’s website. “That exposes us much more, and for that reason, we are going to take measures.”last_img read more

Jamie Carragher slams Unai Emery and claims Arsenal were better under Arsene Wenger

first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement Wenger left Arsenal 18 months ago (Picture: Getty)‘I don’t see anything different from when Arsene Wenger was there at the end. I don’t see it,’ said Carrahger.‘In fact, at times it actually looks worse. I think Sheffield United played better football in the first half than Arsenal and I don’t think you would have seen that under Wenger.‘It’s still early in his second season, but I think we’re getting to that stage near Christmas where you think ‘is Unai Emery the right man to take Arsenal into his third season?’ I think that’s how it is with Arsenal supporters and within the club.‘I just expected something different,” he added. “It’s just like seeing the same stuff. A lot of the time a manager is brought in because the manager before is not getting X, Y or Z right. But they are still getting rolled over every time they play a big game.‘Their away record is two clean sheets in 24 games, eight wins in 24. What’s changed? Nothing has changed.’ Carragher tore into Emery (Picture: Getty)But the Spaniard has alienated supporters with a negative brand of football and their defeat against Sheffield United displayed the same frailties that persisted under Arsene Wenger.AdvertisementAdvertisementAnd Carragher believes that the Gunners would be in the same position had they kept Wenger in charge.

Qld trio began planning deaths months ago

first_imgPrime 7 28 June 2017Family First Comment: So much for ‘safeguards’. Euthanasia just makes vulnerable people more vulnerable, unfortunately.“They were not terminally ill people but on the other hand, they were not in the best of health either.”#rejectassistedsuicideEuthanasia activist Philip Nitschke says a Gold Coast mother and her two daughters had been members of his euthanasia group and started planning their deaths more than six months ago.Margaret, Heather and Wynette Cummins’ bodies were found in one of their homes following an apparent triple suicide pact on Tuesday.Dr Nitschke told AAP on Wednesday he did not personally know the women but confirmed they had joined his Exit International group.“It was a bit over six months ago,” he said from Amsterdam.“They were not terminally ill people but on the other hand, they were not in the best of health either.“They were obviously working out what they wanted to do.”Dr Nitschke said three members had never ended their lives at the same time before, and it was also unusual all of them chose to use the same method.But the man known as Dr Death said it appeared to be a “rational and informed choice” and their decision to end their lives because of their health problems was a matter only for them.“It needs to be respected, it doesn’t mean you need to be enthusiastic about it,” he said.The euthanasia advocate said Australia’s laws were stuck in the dark ages.READ MORE: up with family issues in NZ.

Geistlinger & Hayes: Everything you need to know about Saturday’s CFB lineup

first_imgThe Badger Herald Sports section’s weekly double feature is highlighting all of the weekend’s biggest games outside of Madison each Saturday.For any fellow college football junkies out there, feel free to chime in via Twitter with any questions, comments or requests to @BHeraldSports for the column going forward.Football: No. 8 Wisconsin isn’t through the gauntlet quite yetThe University of Wisconsin football team heads to Evanston, Illinois, to take on Northwestern University this Saturday in search of Read…No. 11 Wisconsin (6-2) at Northwestern (4-4)Where: Ryan Field, Evanston, IllinoisWhen: 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 5TV: ABC (Channel 607 on Residence Hall Cable) / WatchESPNLine: Wisconsin (-7.0)Already having defeated the University of Wisconsin football team in back-to-back seasons, Northwestern University has been turning it on lately after a horrendous start. The Wildcats keep things close, and they are 5-1 against the spread in their last 6 games. Despite being 6.5 and 10.5-point underdogs to the University of Iowa and Michigan State University respectively, NU still managed to defeated both opponents by at least one touchdown. Though the Badgers are the better team, their struggles against Northwestern and lack of offensive explosion leaves the Wildcats with a good chance to at least cover the seven-point spread.Geistlinger: Wisconsin 24, Northwestern 19Hayes: Wisconsin 30, Northwestern 24Football: Wisconsin receives No. 8 in first College Football Playoff rankingsThe College Football Playoff selection committee named the University of Wisconsin football team No. 8 in the nation Tuesday night. Read…No. 1 Alabama (8-0) at No. 13 LSU (6-2)Where: Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge, LouisianaWhen: 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5TV: CBS (Channel 603 on Residence Hall Cable)Line: Alabama (-7.5)Boasting a five-game win streak over Louisiana State University, the University of Alabama has successfully spoiled most of the glory behind what used to be a unpredictable heavy-weight showdown between SEC West giants. But with LSU star running back Leonard Fournette posting Heisman-type numbers in the past few games, the vaunted Alabama defense may face their toughest test of the season. It’s hard to beat LSU at home, and with a freshman quarterback in Bama’s Jalen Hurts, look for the Tigers to capitalize on potential mistakes by the Crimson Tide office. Alabama is the best team in the country, but come Saturday night in Baton Rouge, that won’t mean anything to the more 100,000 fans packed into “Death Valley.” But after they covered a 19-point spread in their last game against then-No. 6 Texas A&M University, it’s tough to bet against the Tide.Geistlinger: Alabama 34, LSU 21Hayes: Alabama 27, LSU 21No. 10 Nebraska (7-1) at No. 6 Ohio State (7-1)Where: Ohio Stadium, Columbus, OhioWhen: 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5TV: ABC (Channel 607 on Residence Hall Cable) / WatchESPNLine: Ohio State (-17.0)Despite suffering their first loss of the season to then-No. 11 Wisconsin in Madison last week in a 23-17 overtime thriller, the University of Nebraska performed well against a team that many expected would expose them. Unfortunately for the Cornhuskers, this weekend isn’t getting any easier. For No. 6 Ohio State University, a statement win over a top 10 team like Nebraska is the perfect remedy for consecutive, less-than-stellar performances. The Buckeyes are for real, but their loss to then-unranked Penn State University on Oct. 22 along with four-point finish over Northwestern last week haven’t given the CFP selection committee anything to dwell on lately. Expect OSU quarterback J.T. Barrett and the Buckeyes to run away with this one if they get the chance.Geistlinger: Ohio State 31, Nebraska 17Hayes: Ohio State 42, Nebraska 20Football: Nebraska game ranks 7th on most watched game on ESPN this yearThe No. 8 University of Wisconsin men’s football team’s game with No. 9 University of Nebraska attracted an audience of Read…No. 5 Washington (8-0) at California (4-4)Where: Memorial Stadium, Berkeley, CaliforniaWhen: 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5TV: ESPN (Channel 660 on Residence Hall Cable)Line: Washington (-17.0)Last week in this column, I admitted that I had never watched University of Washington, yet I picked them to cover. In another game I did not watch, Washington vs. University of Utah, they failed to do so. So, this week I have little choice but to pick against them. This Saturday, Washington takes on the Golden Bears of University of California in a game with a staggering 78-point Over-Under. Cal’s coaching staff seems to have made the bold decision not to teach their players how to play defense this season, allowing 41.8 points per game. They also score 41.3 points per game, however, on the offensive side of the ball. At the very least, Cal should keep this one respectable playing under the national spotlight on ESPN Saturday night.Geistlinger: Washington 53, California 38Hayes: Washington 45, California 21Hayes & Geistlinger’s Upset Alert: Iowa at No. 12 Penn StateWhere: Beaver Stadium, University Park, PennsylvaniaWhen: 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5TV: BTN (Channel 664 on Residence Hall Cable)Line: Penn State (-7.0)Penn State received quite the favorable ranking in Tuesday night’s first College Football Playoff poll, jumping from AP No. 20 to CFP No. 12. The Nittany Lions have been on a tear lately, winning four in a row outright and three in a row against the spread, including their win over previously undefeated and then No. 5 Ohio State. Meanwhile, the University of Iowa is struggling 3-2 in the Big Ten despite their preseason title expectations. This game, however, seems ripe for an upset. Iowa’s three loses have been by a combined 17 points, and they are desperate for a win to stay in the hunt for the West division. Look for them to stay alive and pull it off in a close one on the road in Happy Vally Saturday night.Geistlinger: Iowa 17, Penn State 16Hayes: Penn State 34, Iowa 24last_img read more
