RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Deputy Kieran O’Donnell said, “The Government’s initiative – Resilience & Recovery 2020-2021: Plan for Living with Covid-19 – will guide Ireland’s response to saving lives and managing the pandemic over the next seven months.“We can overcome this. We can beat Covid-19 but it will take hard work and a commitment from all. We have already shown this year how we can work together,“Deputy O’Donnell said.The Government’s plan sets how all in Limerick can manage the disease in their communities over the coming months.The plan sets out five levels of response, each with a number of measures designed to help lower Covid-19 transmission, and also sets out what is permitted at that moment in time. At the moment, Limerick is on level two.“The plan, if followed by all, aims to allow society and businesses to be able to operate as normally as possible, while continuing to suppress the virus. In particular, keeping schools, early learning and childcare services open are a top priority. We want to keep people in work and businesses operating, as we need a functioning economy to maintain our public services.“Each level outlines what is permitted for social or family gatherings, work and public transport, bars, hotels and restaurants, exercise activities and religious services.“Our country is soon entering the Winter months and we need to make every possible effort to make life easier for all.“Please obey the advice of the public health professionals. We are all working for the same goal here – to defeat this pandemic and get our lives back to normal. It will take time but, working together, we can achieve this,” Deputy Kieran O’Donnell concluded.Cabinet also agreed this week to allocate a record €600 million for the 2020 Winter Initiative, to ensure that our health service has the capacity and resources needed to deal with what is forecast to be a particularly challenging few months.Fine Gael leader and Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said, “From the beginning, we knew we were in this together, now we need to know how we can get through this together aswell.“Unfortunately, nothing is certain about Covid-19, it cares little for our plans, however we have reasons to be hopeful as a country. We’re guided by all we’ve learned about the virus in the past few months and we have confidence that we can do this because of what we have learned about each other.“We’ve changed the way we live, the way we work, and today’s plan sets out the steps to keep the virus under control, how we can anticipate and understand how to live our lives for the next six to nine months, and where setbacks occur, the steps that will be taken to reduce the risk of Covid-19 spreading out of control.

Krill fishing in the Southern Ocean has raised in acute form the question of wildlife conservation in Antarctica: what will be the effect on the ecosystem? how much krill can be taken? who can take part? what regulations are needed? The author, a scientist of the British Antarctic Survey, considers the answers in the light of the Antarctic Treaty of 1959 and the Canberra Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources of 1980, and looks at some criticisms of the latter put forward in a recently published book. He suggests that the Convention, while not ideal, is to be welcomed because it provides a framework for conservation and rational exploitation that can be made to work – if the nations that signed it are determined to make it do so.
The former Manchester United defender has clashed with Kick It Out over John Terry’s trial for alleged racist abuse against Anton Ferdinand. Chelsea captain Terry was cleared in court in July 2012, but issues around the case resurfaced with Ferdinand’s new book. Redknapp defended his centre-back, claiming the 35-year-old’s off-field interests do not hurt his top-flight prowess, ahead of his 500th Premier League appearance this weekend. “You’ll always pick on the big players,” said Redknapp. “I didn’t see him make too many mistakes last week. He clipped a ball that got turned over and they ended up scoring a world class goal. “It’s probably because he’s high-profile. That’s the biggest problem. “Joey’s on Twitter and Rio wrote a book. It happens all of the time. Lots of footballers do it, like Wayne Rooney. What can you do? They are high profile now. It’s part of the game. “I don’t think it’s fair. We’ve been a bit open and we need to tighten up. I’ve got no problems with Rio.” Rangers boss Redknapp believes summer recruit Ferdinand has been singled out for undeserved criticism as the Loftus Road club fight for a Premier League foothold. Ferdinand became embroiled in a war of words with the chairman of anti-racism group Kick It Out Herman Ouseley this week after the publication of his latest autobiography, ‘#2sides’. Redknapp will lead a clutch of ex-Hammers returning to Upton Park for QPR’s Premier League clash with West Ham on Sunday. The former West Ham manager said he expects Ferdinand, Bobby Zamora, and Rob Green to relish their East London return. “Hopefully we can go back there and pick up a good result,” he said. “I’m sure there’s an added motivation. They go back there and want to play well. “All my memories were from going there as a kid. It’s a special football club for me.” Redknapp first managed Ferdinand at West Ham and said the ex-England defender was always destined for the top. “He was only 15 and I saw the potential in him then,” said Redknapp. “I said he would be the best defender in Europe because he was on another level. I knew he was going to be a big player.” Press Association Rio Ferdinand has suffered unfair abuse over his QPR performances due to his celebrity status, according to Harry Redknapp.
By John BurtonMIDDLETOWN – “We’re home again,” Jennifer Macchia, director of the Spice Tree School, said with a broad smile as the children and staff entered their restored facility five months after Sandy knocked the nursery and day care facility back on its heels.Spice Tree, 180 Church St., in the township’s Belford section, on Monday greeted its approximately 40 students, ages 6 months to 5 years old, once again at what has been the school’s location, leased from the neighboring Belford United Methodist Church, for the school’s 30-year history.Executive Director Jennifer Macchia (left) and teacher Pat Perry join some of their young students at Spice Tree School, in Middletown’s Belford section, as it reopened this week after experiencing damage from Super Storm Sandy.As a result of the late October storm that battered much of the area, more than three feet of water flooded the privately owned child care facility. According to Macchia and owner Lance Jordan, the tidal surges and flooding from Raritan Bay caused a neighboring creek to rise and wash through the building, wrecking the school and destroying much of the site’s equipment.As the water receded, it left about six inches of sludge in the school’s first floor, Macchia said, and the flood caused the kitchen’s large refrigerator to float over to the other side of the room. Jordan said about 80 percent of the facility and its contents was damaged and had to be discarded or replaced.When he saw it, Jordan said, “I wanted to cry.”“The cribs were floating upside down,” Macchia remembered.Jordan and the church shared the renovation and repair expenses; the church paid for 70 percent of the work to the facility. The building needed walls, flooring and carpeting, cabinets, kitchen sink and refrigerator replaced, as well as electrical work completed before students and staff could return, he said. Jordan’s share of the work came to roughly $80,000. He also had to replace the two small buses and two vans that were parked in the lot when the storm hit, he said.With the location clearly incapable of being used for the immediate future, Macchia said the church’s board of trustees stepped up and were “instantaneously supportive,” agreeing to allow the school to use the church’s large community hall, adjacent to the main church.“It was the Christian thing to do,” said Arliene Zaborney, president of the church’s board.Once the electricity was restored to the location, nearly two weeks after the storm, Macchia, Jordan and his wife Joann, and the staff, set up the interim operation, with assistance from students’ families, who also provided much needed items, like high chairs and disposable diapers.Along with that help, Macchia noted Spice Tree received generous assistance from the Middletown Veterans of Foreign Wars and other organizations, which donated toys and other items. Save The Children charitable organization donated $5,000, and Giving Nest, a North Plainfield preschool, gave equipment for Spice Tree’s small gym area, Macchia said.On the school’s official first day this week, Macchia and the Jordans joined Middletown Deputy Mayor Stephanie Murray for the ribbon cutting and celebrated the school’s return. “It’s very moving when you see this,” Murray said, as children scampered about and operations were back. “It just makes you feel good.”All of the school’s children have returned and for them, the returning is significant, Macchia observed, “because it brings them back to their comfort zone” and a return to normalcy. About five of the families remain displaced due to the damage to their homes, she said.“And it is all about the children,” stressed Jordan, who has owned the school for eight years.
