Facebook Twitter Pinterest From today, passengers arriving to Ireland from overseas will be required to complete a COVID-19 Passenger Locator Form.Under new regulations, signed by Minister for Health Simon Harris, passengers arriving from overseas must complete the form and failure to do so will be an offence.Passengers will be required to provide an address for where they will be staying in Ireland as well as personal contact details.The forms may be used to conduct follow-up checks to make sure people who travel to Ireland are staying where they said they would.They can also be used by contact tracing teams to contact passengers should there be a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 of a flight or ferry coming to Ireland.The move has been criticized by Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary who has called for the removal of “ineffective quarantine measures” and said that by wearing facemasks Irish people can safely “go back flying” from July.People arriving from Northern Ireland, working in defined essential supply chain roles, foreign diplomats and passengers who are transiting through the State without leaving the port or airport will not be required to complete the form.Passengers who are travelling immediately onwards to Northern Ireland will have to fill out a portion of the form.Government guidelines asking those who arrive in Ireland to self-isolate for a period of 14 days remain in place.Minister for Health, Simon Harris TD said: “The Government is concerned that as we move towards the easing of measures, the risk of importing new cases through non-essential travel increases. The introduction of these rules is aimed to limit this risk.“We continue to advise Irish citizens and residents against all non-essential international travel, and passengers arriving into Ireland from overseas are asked to self-isolate for 14 days.“Like all other measures we’ve introduced during this public health crisis, the purpose of these regulations to stop the spread of COVID-19 and to protect people from this virus.”The Regulations introduce new offences punishable by a fine not exceeding €2,500 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding 6 months, or both, for the following:· failure to complete and give the form to a relevant person· providing information that to the person’s knowledge is false or misleading (whether on the form, when presenting the form, or in subsequent follow-up checks)· failure to provide further information to a relevant person upon request (who suspects that the form has not been completed properly)· failure to update residence or contact details if they change within 14 days of arrival into the State.SEE ALSO – 17 new Coronavirus deaths and 73 new cases as college students are warned about accommodation Regulations to complete Covid-19 Passenger Locator Form come into force today TAGSCoronavirusCovid-19Dublin Airport WhatsApp Bizarre situation as Ben Brennan breaks up Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael arrangement to take Graiguecullen-Portarlington vice-chair role WhatsApp Laois Councillor ‘amazed’ at Electric Picnic decision to apply for later date for 2021 festival Electric Picnic RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more

Farmers in St. Ann Urged to Register With ABIS

first_imgFarmers in St. Ann Urged to Register With ABIS UncategorizedJanuary 11, 2007 Advertisements FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Parish Manager for the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA) in St. Ann, Pedro Worghs, is appealing to farmers in the parish to register with the Agro Business Information System (ABIS) programme and become active participants in the fight against praedial larceny.“To date, we have registered a total of 12,617 farmers for the programme, out of which some 12,372 have been verified,” Mr. Worghs told JIS News, noting that there was still an outstanding number of farmers who were yet to be registered.The ABIS system, he assured, was not a form of taxation but was designed to assist farmers in the marketing of their crops and to eliminate praedial larceny. He emphasized that persons who were not registered with the system would not be able to purchase farm receipt books.“Without your receipt books, you will be having serious difficulties in trading your farm produce. You will encounter problems when moving from one section of the parish or one section of the island to another with farm produce,” he reminded farmers, pointing out that goods would be confiscated if farmers were stopped by the Police and did not have their receipts as proof of purchase.He said that the programme was doing very well in some areas of the parish, such as Alexandria and Cave Valley, “but in an area such as the Claremont extension area where, to date, we have verified 2,484 farmers, we still believe that a far greater number of farmers are still to be registered”.Mr. Worghs is encouraging farmers in the parish to make contact with their respective extension area office – St. Ann’s Bay, Brown’s Town, Claremont, Alexandria and Cave Valley – and become registered with ABIS.

Memorial erected at HMP Whitemoor for second world war plane crash victims

first_imgMemorial erected at HMP Whitemoor for second world war plane crash victims Working in partnership with the establishment at HMP Whitemoor, Gov Facility Services Ltd (GFSL) has completed work on a memorial to the 9 people who lost their lives during an RAF training flight over the prison in 1941.The 6 crew members and 3 extra staff were from the 115 Squadron at RAF Marham flying a Wellington bomber when it crashed into a marshalling yard at the prison on 24 November 1941 – 79 years ago this week.HMP Whitemoor sits in the middle of 72 acres of beautiful Fenland nature reserve and, when developing some information boards for the reserve, the GFSL team found out about the crash. GFSL Site Manager Mark Twiddy explains:During fact finding about the reserve with a local historian, we discovered the crash happened in November 1941. Once we found out more – thanks to Fenland and West Norfolk Aviation Museum – we decided to put up a memorial to the 9 people killed in the crash.We were hoping to do a full dedication of the memorial in September this year but, because of the current Covid-19 restrictions, we weren’t able to. Hopefully, we will be able to do this next summer and invite relatives of those who died in the crash.In the meantime, we held a brief small service attended by prison Governor Ruth Stephens, Chaplin Paul Foster and myself where we laid two wreaths, a poppy wreath from HMP Whitemoor and an RAF roundel from the GFSL team at Whitemoor. The wall was built by GFSL staff with materials left over from the original build of Whitemoor and the plaque was purchased by the prison. It’s important to make sure these kinds of events are remembered.GFSL is a Ministry of Justice owned company. Set up in 2018, we work closely with Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service to deliver a range of facility services to 48 prisons in the south of England. /Public Release.

Public Designation of Five Bulgarian Public Officials Due to Involvement in Significant Corruption

first_imgPublic Designation of Five Bulgarian Public Officials Due to Involvement in Significant Corruption Today, we are announcing the public designation of former Bulgarian public officials Alexander Manolev, Petar Haralampiev, Krasimir Tomov, and Delyan Slavchev Peevski, as well as current Bulgarian public official Ilko Dimitrov Zhelyazkov, due to their involvement in significant corruption. In their official capacities as Deputy Minister of the Economy, Director of the State Agency for Bulgarians Abroad, and Chief Secretary of the State Agency for Bulgarians Abroad, respectively, Manolev, Haralampiev, and Tomov were involved in corrupt acts that undermined the rule of law and the Bulgarian public’s faith in their government’s democratic institutions and public processes, including by using their political influence and official power for personal benefit. In his capacity as a member of parliament, Peevski used Zhelyazkov, an official in the National Bureau for Control on Special Intelligence-Gathering Devices, as an intermediary and accomplice to peddle influence and pay bribes to protect himself from public scrutiny and to exert influence over key institutions and sectors in Bulgarian society.The Department of the Treasury also has designated Peevski, Zhelyazkov and Bulgarian oligarch Vassil Bojkov, along with 64 entities owned and controlled by Bojkov and Peevski, for their roles in public corruption, pursuant to Executive Order 13818, which builds upon and implements the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act.These designations are made under Section 7031(c) of the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2021. In addition to Manolev, Haralampiev, Tomov, Zhelyazkov, and Peevski, we are publicly designating Manolev’s wife, Nadya Manoleva, and his children, Alexa, Joanna, and Dimitar; Haralampiev’s wife and son, Veselka Haralampieva and Pavel Haralampiev; Peevski’s minor son and daughter; and Zhelyazkov’s daughters Vania Ilkova Zhelyazkova and Roza Ilkova Zhelyazkova. This action renders Manolev, Haralampiev, Tomov, Zhelyazkov, and Peevski, and each of their immediate families, ineligible for entry into the United States.Today’s actions reaffirm our commitment to supporting rule of law and strengthening democratic institutions in Bulgaria. The United States stands with all Bulgarians whose work drives reforms forward, and the Department will continue to use its authorities to promote accountability for corrupt actors in the region and globally. /Public Release.

Chilean Earthquake Triggers Smaller Than Expected Tsunami

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: Feb. 28, 2010 While a huge earthquake off the coast of Chile triggered a tsunami that moved at the speed of a jet aircraft across the Pacific Ocean Feb. 27, the tsunami was smaller than scientists expected, said a University of Colorado at Boulder earthquake expert.CU-Boulder geological sciences Professor Anne Sheehan said the magnitude 8.8 earthquake offshore of central Chile released more than 400 times the energy of the recent Haiti earthquake. “It was truly an enormous earthquake in terms of energy release, the largest in the world since the 2004 Sumatra earthquake and the fifth largest since 1900,” said Sheehan.Some experts forecasted the Chilean earthquake would produce 9-foot tall tsunami waves slamming places like Hawaii, Guam and American Samoa, eventually reaching as far as Australia, New Zealand and Japan, said Sheehan, also a fellow at the CU-Boulder’s Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences. Fortunately, the event produced smaller than expected waves as it rolled across the Pacific, she said.Chile is along the “Ring of Fire” that stretches north from South America to the Aleutian Islands, then south through Japan, Indonesia and to New Zealand, said Sheehan. The fault zone of the Chilean earthquake was extremely long — several hundred miles — signaling the potential for further large earthquakes in the region.”These large earthquakes in the Southern Hemisphere have the potential to cause tsunamis all over the Pacific Rim,” she said. “Fortunately, people have a much greater understanding of the phenomenon today. Before 2004, a lot of people didn’t even know what a tsunami was,” she said.Sheehan said she believes that lessons learned by Chilean experts following a world-recording setting magnitude 9.5 quake there in 1960, and subsequent quakes in the next several decades, resulted in stricter building codes, saving many lives. “The death toll is expected to be far smaller than in Haiti, an example showing that mitigation efforts really can be effective.”Lessons learned from the 2004 Indian Ocean event also allowed officials to send out effective early warnings and initiate the evacuation of tens of thousands of people living on Pacific islands, she said.For more information contact Sheehan at [email protected] or Jim Scott in the CU-Boulder Office of News Services at 720-381-9479 or [email protected] For more information on CIRES visit cires.colorado.edu/.-CU-last_img read more

Jamaica Records Increases in 2013 CSEC Examinations

first_imgJamaica Records Increases in 2013 CSEC Examinations EducationAugust 13, 2013Written by: Latonya Linton The Ministry of Education is reporting an increase in the percentage of passes recorded in 25 of 35 subjects sat by Jamaican candidates in this year’s Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examinations.Some of the subjects include: Caribbean History which recorded a 75.1 pass rate compared to 73.9 percent in 2012; English B – 80 per cent compared to 74.2 in 2012; Building Technology (construction) – 84.5 per cent as against 73.2 in 2012; and Food and Nutrition – 91.7 per cent pass rate compared to 89.4 per cent last year.Portfolio Minister, Hon. Rev. Ronald Thwaites, who outlined the details during a media briefing at the Ministry’s National Heroes Circle offices on Monday, August 12, said, of note, is the nearly 12 per cent increase in passes recorded for English Language.This, he pointed out indicates nearly 63.6 per cent or two-thirds of the students who sat the exam, passed. The Minister further noted that although 1,100 fewer students took the exam, 2,500 more students passed compared to 2012.Rev. Thwaites advised that this year’s Mathematics results were nearly five per cent higher than the passes for 2012. This, he noted, indicates a 42.2 per cent increase in the number of candidates who successfully sat the subject in this year’s examinations.Despite this, he said the Ministry was not satisfied with this year’s results of these “core subject areas” deemed imperative for economic growth and development.Research, he informed, “has shown that mathematics attainment is the single most reliable education factor which is directly linked to economic growth and development.”Rev. Thwaites also voiced concern that many teachers in the primary and secondary institutions are not deemed fully equipped and qualified to effectively support the teaching and learning of mathematics.A 2011 Ministry census showed that only nine per cent of mathematics teachers in secondary institutions are fully qualified to teach the subject to Grade 11. The census also showed that 40 per cent of mathematics teachers at the secondary level were trained in other specialist areas, while 39 per cent of teachers at the primary level lacked mathematics certification.Rev. Thwaites said this year’s CSEC Mathematics results did not catch the Ministry flatfooted.“We were not pleased by the results last year, and since then we have been working assiduously to complete the review of the….2003 National Numeracy Policy,” Rev. Thwaites said.He stressed that the policy’s guidelines, scheduled to be implemented in September, are pivotal to the Ministry’s efforts in addressing the state of mathematics education in Jamaica.Key standards that the policy seeks to establish include: contact hours for teaching mathematics at all levels of the education system; qualifications required to function as a mathematics teacher; and requirements for the continuous professional development of mathematics teachers.The results of the CSEC examinations will be posted on the Caribbean Examination Council’s website www.cxc.org as at 10:00 pm tonight (August 12).

The Return of the Greek

first_imgHomeFeaturedThe Return of the Greek Aug. 16, 2019 at 5:10 amFeaturedFoodNewsThe Return of the GreekMadeleine Pauker2 years agoChef Carolos Tamazosdowntown santa monicaELA Greek EatsGreek restaurantLincolnd Blvd. The chef behind Inotheke, a modern Greek restaurant that shut its doors in downtown Santa Monica earlier this year, is back with a new concept.ELA Greek Eats opened this week at 307 Lincoln Blvd. in Venice, a few blocks from the Santa Monica border. The takeout-oriented restaurant serves similar fare to Inotheke, including Greek classics like spanakopita, mousaka and souvlaki. Chef Carolos Tomazos, an alumnus of three-star restaurant Per Se in New York, said ELA marks his transition from upscale to casual dining.“For three and a half years, I had a full restaurant in Santa Monica,” said Tomazos, who originally hails from Cyprus. “I wanted to downsize, but I still wanted to work with Greek cuisine, and the market for casual Greek cuisine in Los Angeles hasn’t really taken off yet.”Tomazos said he adapted the light and citrusy dishes he was serving at Inotheke to work in the context of a 15-seat restaurant that plans to do much of its business through food delivery apps like Postmates. He said the menu ranges from simple gyros with tzatziki or tahini, tomatoes shallots and fresh herbs to fully composed dishes like lamb soutzoukakia. There are also vegetable sides roasted with olive oil, lemon, oregano and garlic, dips and spreads with pita, assorted salads and four traditional Greek desserts. Much of the menu is vegan, he said.The dishes cost substantially less than Inotheke, which served sophisticated share plates and was known for its wine selection. At ELA, gyros and salads cost $10, mousaka and meat dishes are priced around $14 and dips and spreads will run you $5.“It’s very much the same food as Inotheke, just in different containers and better value, because with a smaller space and fewer employees I can afford to charge less,” Tomazos said.He added he wanted to start out with Greek foods that customers would be familiar with and might add regional or more esoteric dishes later on.“You come in, look at the board and see some strange words, but it doesn’t matter — we’ll explain what it is right away,” Tomazos said. “It’s all fresh, light and very approachable. Don’t let some fancy Greek words discourage you.”[email protected] :Chef Carolos Tamazosdowntown santa monicaELA Greek EatsGreek restaurantLincolnd Blvd.share on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentMan wounded in police shooting in VeniceStill Stylish at  90You Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall7 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press18 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson18 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter18 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor18 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press18 hours agolast_img read more
