PIC: MAXWELLPHOTOGRAPHY.IEThe impact of aviation, with Shannon Airport’s role pivotal, in the development of Ireland has been recognised in a major award, ahead of projects such as the state motorway programme and even the introduction of the Smoking Ban.The development of Shannon, Dublin and Cork airports has been recognised as the most influential project undertaken in Ireland over the past 50 years by the Irish Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI).Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The ‘Expansion of Ireland’s International Airports’ project was announced as the winner of special PMI anniversary accolade at the Ireland Chapters’ annual National Project Awards on Thursday, November 14, at the Dublin offices of award sponsors PwC in Spencer Dock.The ‘Expansion of Ireland’s International Airports’ was chosen by public vote from a stellar shortlist of eight from nearly 100 initially suggested projects. The shortlist included the Guinness Storehouse; Introduction of the Smoking Ban; Luas Light-rail System; Redevelopment of Croke Park; Regeneration of Dublin Docklands; State Motorway Programme; and The Wild Atlantic Way.Welcoming the award, Shannon Group Chief Executive Mary Considine said: “We are very proud of the influence Shannon Airport has had and continues to have on Ireland’s economic success. Shannon is now and always was an innovator; it’s in our DNA, from the establishment of the world’s first Duty-Free shop in 1947, now grown into a multi-billion dollar global industry, to being the first airport in the world, outside of the Americas, to provide full US Preclearance facilities, making arrival in the US easier and faster. More recently we were also the first airport in Europe to establish an airport sensory room for our customers.“This year we celebrated the 80th anniversary of the landing of the first passenger aircraft, and as a central core of Shannon Group, the airport continues to be a driving force for economic growth in the West of Ireland. It does this through the delivery of global air connectivity to enhance the region attractiveness as a location for FDI and indigenous companies and boosts the tourism industry by providing overseas visitors with gateway access to the Wild Atlantic Way.“Shannon was the birth place of aircraft leasing and today we are continuing to support Shannon’s aviation cluster through our International Aviation Services Centre (IASC). We are very proud and grateful for the honour bestowed on us by Irish public, and of the role that Shannon Airport, through our dedicated employees past and present, has played in growing the Irish economy over the past 50 years.” WhatsApp TAGSairportbusinessClareindustryLimerick City and CountyNewsShannonTransporttravel Facebook Limerick businesses urged to accept Irish Business Design Challenge Exercise With Oxygen Training at Ultimate Health Clinic center_img Previous articlePike Overcome Ballynanty with Controlled DisplayNext articleAlby Mathewson set to leave Munster on Saturday Staff Reporter BusinessNewsShannon Airport’s influence has been central in Irish aviation – Shannon Group CEO Mary ConsidineBy Staff Reporter – November 18, 2019 432 Ann & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 29 | Levelling Up Twitter Linkedin Print Limerick on Covid watch list TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!last_img read more

Next: Higher Education Costs and High Foreclosure Rates The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Federal Housing Finance Agency has released the Foreclosure Prevention Report for May 2018, a monthly update on the foreclosure data resulting from the actions of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The data reported nearly 24,211 foreclosure prevention actions completed for the month, a nearly 13 percent month-over-month increase from April, bringing the total to 4,154,218 since the conservatorships began in September 2008. According to the report, over half of these actions have been permanent loan modifications.Of the total 2,218,961 permanent loan modifications produced by the conservatorships since their inception, 17,557 were produced within this time period. Twenty-six percent of modifications in May were modifications with principal forbearance. Modifications with extend term only accounted for 47 percent of all loan modifications during the month. Eight hundred and eighty-seven short sales and deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure were completed in May, a 4 percent increase from April’s reporting.The enterprises recorded that the serious delinquency rate has made slight progress, dropping from 1.03 percent at the end of April, to .97 percent at the end of the May reporting period, though third-party and foreclosure sales showed an increase to 4,624 in May from 4,410 in April.According to the report, the enterprises’ foreclosure starts decreased from 15,308 in April to 12,834 in May. This comparison reflects recent data released by CoreLogic, which shows the number of foreclosures having decreased back to pre-crisis levels nationally as of April. This report showed more homeowners remaining current on their mortgage payments thanks to factors such as unemployment rates at an 18-year low, home prices above the pre-recession peak, and high-quality underwriting. Reflecting a near 4 percent decline, foreclosures have reached .6 percent in the CoreLogic report.Read the full report here.Want to know more about Fannie and Freddie’s recent movements?

Chhokar, former Dean, IIM-Ahmedabad have prayed for permission to assist the Court in the matter.Vide their intervention application, it is urged that “the applicants would like to assist the court by placing on record” the PILs previously filed by them “with regard to the plight of migrant workers in the aftermath of the country wide lockdown for which no prior intimation was given and which created panic across the country and led to an instantaneous loss of jobs and wages of millions for migrant workers”. The first petition, on behalf of Bharadwaj and Mander, had sought directions to the Central and the State governments to jointly and severally ensure payments of wages/ minimum wages to all the migrant workers whether employed by other establishments, contractors or self-employed, as they are unable to work and earn wages, during the period of the lockdown. The second, by Chhokar, sought directions for the safe return of all migrant workers to their home towns without any payment for transport and with adequate food for the duration of their journey.It is sought to be pointed out that “Both the above mention petitions were disposed off after brief hearings”. “Since this Hon’ble Court has now taken suo motu cognisance of the misery of the migrant workers, the applicants humbly seek to intervene to assist the court with regard to the various issues that the migrant labour have been facing since the lockdown. The applicants being responsible and prominent social workers and academics of this country and since the lockdown have been working for the welfare of migrant workers”, it is pleaded.Observing that that the country has found itself in an unusual state of affairs and that the stakeholders involved were trying to do their best, a three-judge bench of the apex court had on April 21 disposed off the PIL seeking payment of wages to Migrant Workers who are in dire straits in light of the lockdown imposed due to the COVID19 pandemic.”The learned Solicitor General, Mr. Tushar Mehta, has filed a status report and submitted that various measures are in place to address the issues concerning the migrant workers. He further argued that helpline number has been provided to report issues concerning the implementation at the ground level,and that whenever any complaint is received, the authorities are attempting to address the same immediately. Taking into consideration the material placed before us, we call upon the respondent-Union of India to look into such material and take such steps as it finds fit to resolve the issues raised in the petition”, the Court had summarily stated, in disposing of the writ petition.As regards the second PIL, the court had attached much weight to the SG’s submissions that “the reliefs which have been claimed in the writ petition, have been substantially granted since theGovernment has issued order on 29.04.2020 accepting for movement of workers, who were migrant workers, pilgrims, tourists and students who had stranded at different places and could not move from one place to another”. “It is further submitted by Mr. Tushar Mehta that the above was already under contemplation even before filing of the writ petition and the Government was considering the same. He further submits that subsequently further orders have been passed on 01.05.2020 (where the Railways has decided to run “Shramik Special” trains to move migrant workers) and thereafter for facilitating the movement of the aforesaid category of stranded persons, Government is taking all steps with regard to mitigating the hardship of migrant workers who had stranded”, the top court had noted. “Necessary modalities for such transportation has to be implemented by the concerned States/Union Territories in collaboration with the Railways. Insofar as charging of 15% of Railway tickets’ amount from workers, it is not for this Court to issue any order under Article 32 regarding the same, it is the concerned State/Railways to take necessary steps under the relevant guidelines. The substantial relief in the writ petition having been fulfilled we cannot expand the scope of the writ petition to consider other issues sought to be raised by the learned counsel for the petitioners during course of argument. In view of the aforesaid, no purpose will be served in keeping the writ petition pending”, the Court had said in closing the petition on May 5.Then, on May 26, observing that “the newspaper reports and the media reports have been continuously showing the unfortunate and miserable conditions of the migrant labourers walking on-foot and cycles from long distances” and that “the crises of migrant labourers is even continuing today with large sections still stranded on roads, highways, railway stations and State borders. The adequate transport arrangement, food and shelters are immediately to be provided by the Centre and State Governments free of costs”, the Court had suo motu issued notices to the Centre as well as all State Governments and Union Territories.Subsequently, the Supreme Court on Thursday posed several questions to the Central Government on the issues concerning migrant workers. “The person should have money in their pocket in the first place. No migrant should be charged any fare. There has to be some arrangements between states about who bears the cost”, the bench remarked.”Are these people who are going to be transported, are being asked to shell out any money at any stage? With food surplus available with the FCI, is food being supplied to them while they wait for being transported back?”, the bench asked.”How much time do you need to shift the migrants to where they want to go? What will be monitoring mechanism to ensure that food and basic necessities are taken care of?, the bench continued.Click here to download the Intervention Application Next Storylast_img read more

first_imgIt was a place junior Declan Sullivan crossed dozens of times performing his duties as a student videographer for the football team. It was a place the Sullivan family chose as a meeting point after Notre Dame football games. It was a place within sight of Sullivan’s fatal accident almost one year ago. Now, it is a place of memorial. About 75 people gathered Saturday afternoon before the football game against USC to dedicate a memorial to Sullivan, who died last October after a scissor lift from which he was filming football practice fell. A plaque, two benches and some trees now sit between the Guglielmino Athletics Complex and the LaBar Practice Field. Sullivan’s mother Alison addressed the group gathered to honor her son’s life. “We didn’t envision anything that could be more perfect,” Alison said. “I think if [Declan] could see this, he would be in awe. He would say, ‘Gee, this is amazing. I love this. It’s epic.’” The group chuckled at the use of the word “epic,” a word that Declan strived to embody in his life. “He always wanted to be epic, and I think he would look at this and say, ‘Indeed, it is epic,’” Alison said. University President Fr. John Jenkins led the ceremony and asked God to bless the memorial. “Lord God, we ask your blessing,” Jenkins said. “May it be a place of memory, a place of prayer, a place of consolation and a place of hope, so that all who spend time here remember Declan and be inspired by his life.” Jenkins then joined members of the Sullivan family and Vice President for Student Affairs Fr. Tom Doyle in sprinkling holy water on the memorial. Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick also presented the Sullivan family with the flag they helped raise at the opening football game of the year, and representatives from video services gave the family a framed photomontage in the shape of the Notre Dame monogram. Inscribed on the plaque is a poem written in honor of Declan and a shamrock logo with Declan’s initials inside. Alison said both components are particularly meaningful. The poem was written by a family friend and refers to Declan’s life as “never ordinary.” Alison said Declan often quoted a line from the movie “American Beauty” when a minor character said, “There is nothing worse than being ordinary.” “That was kind of his mantra,” Alison said. “The reference in here to ordinary is something I think Dec would really get a kick out of.” Alison said Declan would also appreciate the shamrock logo. “From the time Declan was a little boy, he was enamored with shamrocks,” she said. “It’s very significant because it’s a symbol that he really liked.” Jenkins told The Observer the memorial was an opportunity to honor Declan’s memory. “The loss of Declan was a tragedy to all of us in the Notre Dame family,” he said. “This [dedication] was a chance for all of us to come together in a place dedicated to his memory, to memorialize it and to give thanks for his life.” Jenkins also expressed gratitude to the Sullivan family. “The Sullivan family, from the day Declan died to today, have been such an inspiration to all of us, and it is particularly meaningful for me to bless this place with them,” he said. “We are grateful to them for helping us work through the tragedy of Declan’s death.” Alison also thanked Jenkins and Doyle for their help with the memorial and throughout the year since her son’s accident. “I wanted to thank [Jenkins] for giving us a lot of leeway with this and really letting us do what we thought would best memorialize our son and brother,” Alison said. “And [Doyle] for really helping us every inch of the way with everything from the moment of the accident through the past year.” Megan Doyle contributed to this report.last_img read more
