They all did the simple things to keep us going. It is very important to have a squad and have lads like that coming in gives us all a major boost.”Donie is very familiar with the Westmeath players but he says the motivation of getting back to Croke Park is driving him and the rest of the players.He said: “I know a lot of them from playing college both with and against some of them. So I know how good they are and fit they are.“In the last couple of years they have been very good. So we are going in as underdogs and we will have to start better than we did the last day.“We haven’t won two games in Leinster in a long time. I don’t think I ever have in the same year – so that is a big incentive for the whole squad.“There are a lot of lads in the same boat as me so if we can’t get up for that.

Fibre Optic Communication Network for Public Safety Agencies

Fibre Optic Communication Network for Public Safety Agencies

first_imgAdvertisements RelatedFibre Optic Communication Network for Public Safety Agencies FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Ministry of Transport and Works is to install a fibre optic communication network for the national public safety agencies.This new network, which is to be part of the proposal to charge utility companies, will be one of the key areas of focus for the Ministry.“One of the key areas of focus as it relates to charges for the use of the public rights-of-way is to help to set up a network to help the communication needs of the national public service agencies,” said Communications Manager at the Ministry of Transport and Works, Reginald Allen.Public safety agencies include the police, ambulance services, the fire brigade and the traffic management authorities.Mr. Allen, who was speaking in an interview with JIS News, explained that this new communication network would not only help improve the response time among the public safety agencies, but would also enhance data sharing while significantly reducing their communication costs.“We’ll use fibre optic cable network to get these agencies connected in a way that calls between them are really like extensions. In other words, as far as telecommunication is concerned, they will be like inter-department [so that] you’ll be able to get these agencies to correspond with each other without undue consideration, in terms of the length of time or the volume of usage, because these will become calls that are not billed,” he pointed out.Recently, the Minister of Transport and Works, Mike Henry informed JIS News that a proposal to charge utility companies for use of the rights-of-way was before Cabinet. Under the new policy, “no private entity is to be allowed to profit from the use of the public rights-of-way without compensating the public for its use.”According to Mr. Allen, rights-of-way are not just the sidewalks, but “covers everything that is in the air, on the ground and below.sidewalks, light posts, billboards and whatever is underneath [such as] water, sewage, telecommunication, among others.” RelatedFibre Optic Communication Network for Public Safety Agenciescenter_img Fibre Optic Communication Network for Public Safety Agencies UncategorizedMarch 28, 2008 RelatedFibre Optic Communication Network for Public Safety Agencieslast_img read more

Lao Economy Set to Recover if Threats Can Be Contained

Lao Economy Set to Recover if Threats Can Be Contained

first_imgLao Economy Set to Recover if Threats Can Be Contained While economic growth in the Lao PDR contracted in 2020 for the first time in over two decades, the economy is set to recover in 2021 and in the medium term, provided the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is contained and business can resume with trading partners, according to a World Bank report released today.The latest Lao PDR Economic Monitor – Supporting Economic Recovery – finds that the COVID-19 pandemic has had significant adverse effects on growth across the country, plunging the economy into its first recession since the Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s. The report estimates that the economy will shrink by 0.6 percent in 2020, with tourism services, wholesale and retail trade, and manufacturing most seriously affected.Declining economic activity has reduced the government’s ability to collect revenues, which in turn has led to a worsening fiscal situation. The kip has lost value against foreign currencies and this depreciation, along with rising food prices, has caused higher headline inflation.“While the Lao PDR has so far done very well to contain the spread of COVID-19, the economic effects of the outbreak have affected the livelihoods of millions of Lao people, and pose a serious risk to sustained poverty reduction”, said Nicola Pontara, World Bank Country Manager. “However, if the pandemic remains under control domestically and business can resume with trading partners, we can expect some recovery in 2021”.According to the report, GDP growth is expected to rebound to 4.9 percent in 2021. Medium-term growth would also gradually recover as a result of infrastructure investment and a further pick up in services, exports, and private consumption. More COVID-19 outbreaks, however, would pose challenges for the recovery, due to the knock-on effects of potential lockdowns or restrictions on trade and tourism.The report also highlights the rising public external debt burden. External debt and low foreign currency reserves limit the government’s capacity to adopt a robust fiscal stimulus. Moving forward, priorities include putting public external debt on a sustainable trajectory, improving the generation of revenue to create fiscal space, and supporting those households and firms most severely affected by the economic downturn.A thematic section, Livelihoods in the Time of COVID-19, identifies the groups most vulnerable to the pandemic, and recommends policy options that could help protect their livelihoods. These include expanding coverage of cash and in-kind food transfers, and promoting skill development for laid-off workers and returned migrants.The Lao Economic Monitor is published twice yearly by the World Bank. /Public Release.

Rocking Wildfire Relief

Rocking Wildfire Relief

first_imgIn a state with more than 94 million acres spread far and wide among its borders, 1 million acres might not seem like much in the grand scheme of things.But when those million acres are turned to smoke and ash, scorched black and gray by the summer’s wildfires, the entire state feels it. It was an historic season, and the fires only stopped once the temperatures cooled and the snow began flying.Once they recovered from the shock of the disaster, Montanans from all corners of the state began to ask how they could help, how they could give back to the state they call home.On Nov. 17 and 18, the Crown of the Continent Guitar Foundation, in coordination with Disaster Relief for Montana, will host two fundraising concerts, Crown Stars 4 Montana Relief, featuring guitar sensation “King” Solomon Hicks from New York City and Seattle alt-rock band Gypsy Temple.The concerts will also include local favorites, such as Andre Floyd, Mike Murray, Luke Dowler, and many more.“We want to see if there’s something we can do to help in the state of Montana,” said Diane Kautzman of the COCGF. “We thought it was a great opportunity for us to bring some music in and benefit a lot of people.”While he’s here, Solomon Hicks will also make a round of presentations at local high schools, where he’s already “a big hit — the schools love him.” The 35- to 55-minute presentations, Kautzman said, will touch on how music changed his life, and how education was an important part of him becoming a success.Ongoing music education with the younger generations is a big part of the COCGF’s mission to mentor and teach, Kautzman said. Though it is known for its weeklong workshops and concert series at the end of the summer, Kautzman said COCGF is a year-round organization, with programming and partnerships to reach as many people as possible.Hicks will give presentations at Glacier, Columbia Falls and Bigfork high schools, and Whitefish Middle School.Kautzman also said she hoped to get Gypsy Temple into the schools, and there was interest from the band, but their flight schedule didn’t allow for it.The Nov. 17 and 18 concerts will benefit wildfire disaster relief along with the foundation’s music education. Hicks will perform on Friday, Nov. 17 only, at the Bigfork Center for Performing Arts from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. There will be appetizers and drinks available. Tickets are $50.The Saturday, Nov. 18 show will be at the Craggy Range Bar and Grill in Whitefish, with two sets, one from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and another from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Food will be available for the first set. Tickets to the first show are $50, and $20 for the second set.Hicks is known throughout the world as King to his fans, having been in the music industry playing guitar since he was 13. For nine years, he’s been the lead guitarist and performer for the Cotton Club, a 13-piece band.Gypsy Temple is an explosion of alt-rock out of Seattle, featuring Cameron Miles Lavi-Jones as lead singer and guitarist, Hamoon Milaninia on the bass, Cory Cavazos on the cello, and Kai Evan Hill on percussion.Kautzman said the concerts will support music education, but they’re especially geared to bring attention to the efforts of fire crews around the state who risked life and limb to keep more land from burning.“It’s a way for our ongoing programs to benefit, but also to not forget that DNRC and our volunteer fire departments went up and helped,” Kautzman said. “It’s to show we all actually care, and to remind people in November that we can have fires next year.”Tickets to the concerts are available online at www.crownguitarfest.tix.com, by calling (406) 270-1559, or for purchase at the Jug Tree in Bigfork, Montana Marie in Kalispell, and Craggy Range and Frame of Reference in Whitefish.
