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.

GitHub Initiative Spurs Innovation

first_imgAlbert Einstein is noted as saying, “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”It’s the same way that we think about developers: they have the imagination to always look for ways to help turn groundbreaking ideas into operational realities. And as innovators ourselves, we’re right there with them.That’s why today, EMC’s Enterprise Content Division (ECD) is proud to announce enhancements to its developer program by making open source code accessible to users on GitHub. The initiative provides free sample code across a variety of ECD products to help our partners and customers develop new and exciting solutions based on industry-leading content management technology. ECD is building on a growing EMC presence on GitHub, which includes numerous open source contributions such as CoprHD, REX-Ray and RackHD being driven through EMC {code}.”The feedback from our partners has already been positive. Jeroen Jansen, CEO from Informed Consulting shared this comment with me, The GitHub initiative opens up new possibilities for us. Not only does this program supply valuable code to kick start our projects, but it also provides a collaborative environment for innovation from where we can share and grow our expertise and a direct technical channel of communication with the product experts at ECD.”GitHub.com provides a home where developers can store software projects and network with likeminded people, fostering growth and collaboration. As the largest online storage space of collaborative works in the world, GitHub.com allows its community of more than 12 million developers to discover, use, and contribute to over 31 million projects using a powerful collaborative development workflow. With its intuitive user interface, GitHub gives ECD the opportunity to co-promote partner software and share useful code.Sample code for the EMC Documentum platform is currently available on the GitHub site, with additional ECD code samples coming in the future. Access to the GitHub.com site is open to the public. Users can simply identify projects that are relevant to their business and contribute. Developers can also collaborate with an established EMC community of highly technical contributors across engineering and product teams.The availability of ECD sample code, EMC’s investment in co-innovation programs, and our Developer Track at Momentum at EMC World, are just a few examples of how we support the developer community. We expect that this initiative will increase interactions and provide additional tools to our users to optimize visibility and inspire new forms of innovation.We’re excited to see how partners, customers, and startups will leverage the power of GitHub to reimagine the future as organizations undergo digital transformation.last_img read more

Jerry Jones: Cowboys actively discussing Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper extensions

first_img“Certainly if there are opportunities there that make sense, then we’ll progress,” Jones said when asked about his plans for the team. “I think pretty much everybody’s on it pretty good that there’s some pretty active discussions now with Dak and Amari. but it doesn’t mean that some can’t pick up in short order with other players that we have on our roster that we certainly want to keep here in Dallas and have them remain Cowboys in the future.”Both could prove to be vital pieces for the Cowboys’ offensive and team success in 2019. Related News Dallas drafted Prescott in the fourth round in 2016. He was third on the quarterback depth chart at the start of training camp, but was promoted to become the Cowboys’ Week 1 starter after a slew of injuries. He went on to throw for 3,667 yards and a career-high 23 touchdowns while winning the offensive Rookie of the Year award.The 25-year-old is still on his rookie contract. His four-year deal is set to expire after the 2019-20 season. He is set to receive a little more than $2 million this year.Cooper, a 2015 first-round pick, recorded 22 receptions for 280 yards in six games for Oakland before he was traded to Dallas in the middle of the season, where he racked up 53 receptions for 725 yards and six touchdowns. He was a driving force behind the Cowboys’ midseason turnaround and provided the dynamic deep threat they needed.He is set to make $13 million in 2019 and will be a free agent after the season, if he does not sign an extension.Dallas has already signed top pass rusher DeMarcus Lawrence to a five-year, $105 million this offseason. It has also yet to extend Ezekiel Elliott, who led the NFL in rushing yards in 2018.The Cowboys managed to bounce back from a slow start to finish 10-6 and win the NFC East last season, but the foundation of the team could fall apart if it doesn’t find a way to maintain its key playmakers.
