DONEGAL GRA REPRESENTATIVE IN DAIL WAGES PROTEST

first_imgMembers of the Central Executive Committee of the Garda Representative Association including a representative from Donegal are holding a protest with placards outside Dáil Eireann today.Gda Marie McLoughlin, who sits on the committee, is taking part in the protest against the unfairness of proposed public sector pay cuts. General Secretary PJ Stone told Donegal Daily: “Our Association has made substantive reforms of roster and made significant savings for the country. We were never offered a seat in the negotiations between government and the trade unions; members of An Garda Síochána were sidelined. “It is a disappointment to the GRA to learn that the Government were now intent on extending the Croke Park deal to facilitate savings to the magnitude of €60 million over three years from the pension and pay of members of An Garda Síochána.“If we are to look at the deal now being voted upon by the trade union movement, we see that it is blatantly unfair. How our Taoiseach can see this as ‘fair’ is simply baffling. Any public servant working nine to five and earning €65,000 per year will not have their pay reduced; while a garda earning €38,000 per year will suffer a pay cut.” DONEGAL GRA REPRESENTATIVE IN DAIL WAGES PROTEST was last modified: March 20th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DONEGAL GRA REPRESENTATIVE IN DAIL WAGES PROTESTlast_img read more

SA swimmers stun the world

first_img16 August 2004Roland Schoeman, Lyndon Ferns, Darian Townsend and Ryk Neethling took the four-by-100 metres freestyle relay by storm on Sunday night, beating some of the biggest names in swimming and shattering the world record to take South Africa’s first Olympic gold medal since the marathon in Atlanta eight years ago.Schoeman, Ferns, Townsend and Neethling smashed the previous world mark by half a second, clocking 3 minutes 13.17 seconds. It was a dominant performance by the South African quartet, and it started with Roland Schoeman, who destroyed the opposition with a devastating first leg that gave the South Africans a lead that was never closely challenged.The further the race progressed, the clearer it became that the four swimmers were about to land South Africa’s first gold medal since Atlanta, where Penny Heyns won double-gold in the pool and Josiah Thugwane captured a shocking win in the marathon.When Neethling touched to complete victory by more than a second over The Netherlands, with the USA in third, there was pandemonium in the South African lane.That the win had come in world record time was simply icing on the cake. The South Africans had crushed the best the rest of the world had to offer. Defending champions and world record holders Australia, with Ian Thorpe and Michael Klim, could only manage sixth place. An unbelievable final leg by Pieter van den Hoogenbrand still left the Netherlands almost a full second behind SA.And the United States, despite drafting Ian Crocker and Michael Phelps for the first two legs and world number one Jason Lezak for the final leg, had to settle for bronze.Hard-fought win in hockeyIn the men’s hockey competition, South Africa opened up with a hard-fought and courageous victory over Argentina, ranked six places above South Africa in the world rankings.Craig Jackson and company fell one behind the South Americans after Mario Almada netted with a great reverse stick shot. However, from that point on, Jackson in central defence, and goalkeeper Davie Staniforth, put up a wall the Argentinians couldn’t break down.Striker Greg Nicol then did what was necessary to secure victory, firstly scoring from a penalty corner, then adding a second goal with a shot from the field. It is his final international tournament before retirement, but Nicol proved that he remains one of the world’s greatest strikers ever.Archery: Lewis advancesArcher Kirsten Lewis overcame strong winds and India’s Dola Banerjee to advance in the round of 32 in the women’s individual 70 metres. Lewis won 141-131 against the thirteenth-ranked India star; no mean achievement considering that she’s ranked fifty-second.In other events South Africans fared less well. The beach volleyball pairing of Leigh-Anne Naidoo and Jula Willand went down to second seeds Adriana Behar and Shelda Bede of Brazil, while Gareth Blanckenberg finished twenty-second and sixteenth in the first two races of sailing’s laser class.Anriette Schoeman struggled with the heat and failed to challenge in the women’s cycling road race, and badminton’s Chris Dednam was thrashed 15-1, 15-0 in the men’s singles.last_img read more

No Cyber Czar for You, America: Obama Fails to Appoint InfoSec Head

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#politics#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img jolie odell In a recent interview, Homeland Security deputy undersecretary Philip Reitinger commented on President Obama’s as-yet unfulfilled promise to appoint a senior White House cybersecurity advisor.Although the nation has an acting cybersecurity coordinator in former FBI cyber staffer Chris Painter, no permanent appointee has been named in the six months since the President announced his commitment to create and fill this position. Can the White House appropriately and competently address our national needs without a permanent cybersecurity head? In light of our assessment of America’s vulnerability to cyber attacks just six months ago, Reitinger’s reaction is surprising.Reitinger, a former Microsoft strategist and current director of the National Cybersecurity Center, believes that White House cybersecurity processes at the White House are running smoothly.“It is absolutely essential that there be strong, White House involvement in cybersecurity, and there is strong, White House involvement in cybersecurity,” he said. He further vouched for the acting coordinator, saying, “The acting cybersecurity coordinator at the White House, Chris Painter, is a bona fide expert in this field, and has a great team of people working for him.”Still, although Reitinger says things are going well now and that short-term issues are being addressed, how much control does the acting coordinator have to over long-term, national IT concerns – especially considering the problematic and essentially political nature of cybersecurity leadership in Washington? Reitinger told Information Week several months ago that he expected the coordinator position to be a fulcrum for cybersecurity at the national level and within the White House. Have his priorities shifted enough that he feels a temporary position in one administration is truly adequate to address the country’s needs?And what of the President’s assurance that national cybersecurity would be prioritized with this new position? We’ve been reporting since April on calls for the President to create a National Office of Cyberspace, and those requests from all corners – including congressional types and think tanks – have not satisfactorily been met.To quoteInformation Security editor Michael Mimoso, “All I want for Christmas is a cybersecurity coordinator.”Is President Obama right to ease up on his commitment to national cybersecurity, and is America sufficiently protected by a temporary cybersecurity coordinator, after all? Or are the cyberwonks justified in their disappointment and frustration? Let us know your opinion in the comments. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

Former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan ideal candidate to head US Federal Reserve: Barrons magazine

first_imgCan former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan head the US Federal Reserve? Yes, he would be an ideal choice to lead the American central bank, says global financial magazine Barrons.US President Donald Trump is expected to soon announce a successor to Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, whose term expires early next year.”If sports teams can recruit the best talent from around the globe, why not central banks?” asked an article in Barrons magazine while pitching for Rajan as the next head of the Federal Reserve.The article regrets that “nowhere on the short list of potential candidates to lead the Federal Reserve is the current star among the worlds central bankers — someone who oversaw a sharp drop in inflation, the stabilisation of a currency, and a 50 per cent jump in stock prices”.”Perhaps more important, his was a lonely but prescient voice warning of a financial crisis resulting from excessive risk-taking in credit derivatives — years before it hit,” it added. There are precedents for central banks to be headed by non-citizens such as Canada-born Mark Carney at the Bank of England, the article said, maintaining that nobody is pitching for Rajan for the Fed post though he has been mentioned as a possible Nobel laureate in economics. Rajan, who at 40 was the first non-western and the youngest to become the chief economist at the International Monetary Fund, shot to big fame three years after he predicted a financial crisis at an annual gathering of economists and bankers in the US in 2005.advertisement He was appointed RBI Governor by the previous UPA government in 2013 and although he wanted a second term, he was not offered an extension — which most of his predecessors got — by the current NDA regime.He is currently the Katherine Dusak Miller Distinguished Service Professor of Finance at the Booth School of Business, University of Chicago.last_img read more
