Abortion Legisltation: Minister warns Creighton faces long hard road

first_imgNews The Transport Minister says it will be a long road back to the Fine Gael Parliamentary Party for Junior Minister Lucinda Creighton if she votes against the abortion legislation.The new Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill will complete all stages in the Dáil later.Some of the 165 amendments tabled will be debated before the key vote at around 10pm, when all eyes will be on Minister Creighton.Michelle Mulherin, John O’Mahony or John Paul Phelan may also join her in voting against the Bill.Transport Minister Leo Varadkar says Minister Creighton will face an uphill battle to get back into the parliamentary party if she loses the whip tonight.”There’s a possibility that they could come back to the party but that’s not easy – you’d have to get a vote in the Parliamentary Party to re-admit you” he said.”You’d have to get your own party members to select you and I think that may be a significant issue for Lucinda in the future, given that she represents a very liberal constituency actually – both in terms of voters and the party membership are very liberal in that constituency” he added.

Calls for urgent action over flood defence measures in Inishowen

first_imgThere have been calls for urgent action after residents in Burnfoot and Buncrana feared they could lose their homes again following near-miss flooding in the region on Wednesday morning. A councillor for the area has said that rising waters and spot flooding on Wednesday morning should serve as a stark reminder of the need to urgently build flood protection measures in Burnfoot and Buncrana.More than 100 people had to be rescued in the northwest after heavy rain flooded homes and left Derry City virtually inaccessible by road in August 2017. Councillor Jack Murray said: “On Wednesday morning, I was inundated with calls from local residents in Burnfoot and Buncrana who were extremely fearful that they could lose their homes once again.“Thankfully they were spared the devastation we experienced in August 2017 – but only just.“It is unacceptable that people in our community continue to live in constant fear of their homes being washed away.“While those in Burnfoot successfully secured funding to construct flood defences, they still await those works. “Those who were forced to leave their homes in the village still have no indication of when they’ll be able to return home.“Worse still, the people who live along the Crana River have no plans for works at all.“That is completely unacceptable, particularly given that they have commissioned professional research which shows the real danger of another flood in that area.“We cannot wait for more homes to be destroyed. We need action immediately.”An urgent meeting has now been sought with the Minister for the Office of Public Works and Flood Relief in order to secure the protection desired.

Ferrostaal to invest R1.8bn in SA

first_img17 October 2005German industrial group MAN Ferrostaal is to make two major investments in South Africa, together worth about R1.8-billion, Business Day reports.According to Business Day, Ferrostaal will invest in a stainless steel precision strip mill at Coega in the Eastern Cape and an oil rig manufacturing plant at Saldanha Bay in the Western Cape.The investments will be made in fulfilment of the company’s “offset” obligations under the SA government’s industrial participation programme, which requires any multinational company that wins a government tender worth more than US$10-million to spend roughly 30% of the value of the contract on local investment.In terms of the offset programme, major arms contractors, including Ferrostaal, are committed to investing US$4-billion in South Africa in return for arms deal contracts.According to Business Day, $1.5-billion of this has been committed and invested so far.The newspaper reports that Ferrostaal has approved a €80-million (R640-million) investment for the first phase of a stainless steel precision strip mill at Coega’s industrial development zone, with €120-million (R960-million) envisioned in a second phase.And last week, Business Day reports, the company presented the SA government with details of a R200-million oil rig manufacturing plant at Saldanha Bay and a repair facility in Cape Town harbour.Both projects are expected to get under way in March 2006.SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

Lake Erie angling outlook is rosy

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Great walleye hatches from 2014 and 2015 are expected to contribute to exceptional fishing opportunities in Lake Erie this year, according to the ODOW, while anglers pursuing yellow perch in the Western Basin will likely find excellent numbers of fish. Lake Erie walleye and yellow perch fisheries are managed through an interagency quota system that involves Ontario, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio, and each jurisdiction regulates its catches to comply with quotas and minimize the risk of over-fishing these species. Quotas for the upcoming fishing season are determined through consensus agreement by these jurisdictions through the Lake Erie Committee of the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, which were just recently announced for 2017.As a result of the 2017 quota allocation, the daily bag limit will be six walleye from May 1 through Feb. 28, 2018. From March 1, 2018, through April 30, 2018, the daily walleye bag limit will be four. A 15-inch minimum size limit is in effect during the entire season for walleye. The yellow perch daily bag limit will be 30 from May 1 through April 30, 2018, with no minimum size limit. Lake Erie anglers can find walleye and yellow perch bag limit information at ODNR offices, in special publications at bait and tackle shops and at wildohio.gov. WalleyeOhio walleye anglers will catch fish mostly from the 2015, 2014 and 2013 hatches, with some fish from the 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009 year classes. Additional fish from 2007 and 2003 will also be harvested by anglers. Walleye from the 2014 hatch will range from 16-19 inches, while walleye from the 2013 hatch will be between 17-22 inches. Fish from the 2003 and 2007 hatches are likely to carry most of the Central Basin fisheries, and a good number of these walleye will be over the 26-inch range. Large walleye from strong hatch in 2003 will continue to provide “Fish Ohio” opportunities (greater than 28 inches), with this year class nearing the size that may give Ohio a new state record walleye. Additionally, in 2017, anglers should see a number of smaller (less than 15 inches) fish from the excellent 2015 hatch. Anglers are reminded of the 15-inch minimum size limit and encouraged to release these fish with as little handling as possible so they can contribute to the fisheries in future years. As the 2017 season progresses, more of the 2-year-old fish will surpass the 15-inch minimum size limit. Yellow perchExpect excellent perch fishing in 2017, with improving numbers of fish in the Western Basin. Perch anglers in the west will primarily catch perch from 2013, 2014 and 2015, providing a good range of sizes. The largest perch in the Western Basin will come from 2012 and older year classes. Central Basin anglers should expect to find average numbers of yellow perch, with most fish coming from the 2012 year class and to a lesser extent, the 2014 year class. Older fish from years prior to 2012 will provide the potential for trophy yellow perch. Black bassSmallmouth bass fishing in 2017 is expected to be consistent with recent years. In 2016, smallmouth bass catch rates were well above average for the fifth consecutive year, and in 2017, anglers should expect more of the same, including an excellent size range (14 to 22 inches and weighing up to 6 pounds). The best fishing for smallmouth bass will continue to be in areas with good bottom structure, which is the available habitat across much of the entire Ohio nearshore and islands. Continuing the trend from previous years, largemouth bass fishing should be excellent in 2017. This fishery continues to produce exceptional catch rates and some large fish in nearshore areas and harbors across Ohio’s Lake Erie. All black bass (smallmouth and largemouth) must be immediately released from May 1 through June 23. Beginning June 24, the daily bag limit for bass will be five, with a 14-inch minimum length limit. SteelheadSteelhead anglers should enjoy another year of great fishing in 2017 in Ohio’s Lake Erie open waters and in tributaries. Peak summer steelhead action on Lake Erie can be found offshore from June through August between Vermilion and Conneaut, with catches measuring 17 to 29 inches. Most Lake Erie anglers troll for steelhead in deep waters using spoons with divers or downriggers until fish move close to shore in the fall. The daily bag limit remains at five fish per angler from May 16 through Aug. 31, and two fish per angler between Sept. 1 and May 15, 2018. A 12-inch minimum size limit is in effect throughout the year. White bassWhite bass continue to provide excellent seasonal fishing opportunities in the Maumee and Sandusky rivers and in the open lake. The 2017 catch will continue to be dominated by fish from the 2012 and 2010 year classes. Fish from older year classes could be as large as 16 inches. Anglers should focus on major Western Basin tributaries during May and June and nearshore areas of the open lake during the summer. There is no white bass daily bag limit or size limit. Other speciesBays, harbors and main lake shorelines offer excellent fishing for panfish, as well as occasional northern pike and muskellunge in vegetated areas.Updated Lake Erie fishing reports are available at wildohio.gov or by calling 888-HOOKFISH (888-466-5347). Information is available from ODNR Division of Wildlife staff from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at the Fairport Harbor station (440-352-4199) for the Central Basin and at Sandusky station (419-625-8062) for the Western Basin. Information on the ODOW’s Lake Erie research and management programs, fisheries resources, fishing reports, maps and links to other Lake Erie web resources are available at wildohio.gov.last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, April 16, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Warmer air surges into the region today thanks to strong south flow coming up the backside of high pressure. This south flow will also bring moist air north ahead of our next weather system that impacts the rest of the week. Temps today should be 10-15 degrees warmer than yesterday in many parts of Ohio. Sunshine dominates, although we may see some offshoot clouds from Michigan and southern Ontario in far northern parts of the state from time to time. It should not be a big deal. Tomorrow we will see clouds move back into the region, and those clouds can trigger some scattered showers or thunderstorms. The action tomorrow is somewhat hit and miss and may end up being more of a factor in far NW Ohio, Indiana, influenced by a disturbance that meanders through the Great Lakes today. Still, though, we don’t want to get too cute with the forecast tomorrow. At this time, we think moisture tomorrow will be limited to 40% coverage. However, it is just the beginning of a much wetter period. On Thursday we have rain and thunderstorms spreading across the state with the potential for some strong to severe weather Thursday night and Friday morning. The heaviest rains come in that Thursday night into early Friday morning period, particularly from near midnight through sunrise, and we may see a couple of waves of heavy rain and thunderstorm action in central and southern Ohio.  Showers linger through the balance of Friday and Saturday, but with much lighter intensity and lower coverage. On Friday, lingering showers can bring a few hundredths to .5” to 70% of the state, while Saturdays action triggers a few hundredths to .25” over 60% of the state. Overall, rain totals from tomorrow through Saturday early afternoon will be from half to 1.5 inches, and we have concern about rains over 2” in a few parts of the state, especially west central and NW Ohio. The map at right shows storm total precipitation potential through Saturday. We turn out partly sunny on Sunday and see a mix of clouds and sun on Monday, with temps near normal. The rest of our forecast for the 10 day window is unchanged, with rains returning next Tuesday, spreading across the state from NW to SE. We end up with 75% coverage over the state for Tuesday with rains of .25”-1”; thunderstorms are likely. Then Wednesday we see rains concentrate more on the southern half of the state, with a few hundredths to .4”, mostly from I-70 south. Again, no significant drying there. We have a couple of tweaks to the extended period. Dry weather still is in to start for next Thursday and Friday, but rains are looking to redevelop sooner, for the following weekend, and then on and off rains are likely through the turn of the month. Daily or event totals are not large, a quarter to half an inch, but with the new look at frequency in these rains, we still look to see limited drying into early May. The one thing that may be helpful in the extended period is that coverage of the rains may be closer to 60%…allowing for parts of the state to miss out. Those will be the areas to watch as we move forward, because we anticipate the need to adjust and change out look at the turn of the month in coming forecasts.last_img read more

Kayak Launches Direct Hotel Booking Feature as It Preps for an IPO

first_imgRelated Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Travel search company Kayak has just announced that it will begin handling hotel reservations itself, rather than just referring customers to its partner sites when they are ready to book a room. This marks Kayak’s expansion beyond just aggregating travel information, so users can research and reserve their travel needs.Kayak is introducing the “Book Now” feature in limited beta, but the simple booking process will be available on its website and mobile apps in the coming weeks. Customers will still have the option to book their hotel rooms elsewhere. But the move will help keep users on the Kayak site, rather than driving them elsewhere to complete their purchases.The addition of direct hotel reservations will bring Kayak into competition with the likes of Orbitz and Expedia, but it comes as Kayak prepares for an initial public offering.When the company filed for its IPO last year, it reported that it had generated revenues of $128 million for the year-to-date, a 48% increase from the previous year. The site also said that it had seen an almost 40% increase in traffic.But as Kayak prepares for its IPO it needs to continue to grow that revenue and traffic and to fend off competitors in travel search. The most obvious of these is Google, which is in the process of buying the travel information provider ITA Software. In order to defend itself against this, Kayak announced last week that it had partnered with Bing in order to feature Kayak data in Bing search results.
