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

first_imgOne of 2017’s strangest stories–even in a year of strangeness on all fronts–was the epic failure of Fyre Festival, the upper-crust Bahamian destination festival organized by rapper Ja Rule and his 25-year-old entrepreneurial partner Billy McFarland. The now-legendary shit-show of colossal proportions promised an upper-crust private island lap of luxury but promptly imploded and devolved into a virtual refugee situation just hours after the event began. McFarland and his company, Fyre Media, were quickly hit with a barrage of legal action, including a $100M class action suit filed by Fyre Festival attendees and various criminal charges brought on behalf of investors.On Tuesday, McFarland pleaded guilty to misleading investors and wire fraud in a Manhattan federal court. As CNBC reports, McFarland, who owns Fyre Media, the company behind Fyre Festival, said that he accepted full responsibility for various serious missteps and admitted that he engaged in “fraudulent behavior.” In the hearing, he apologized to his company, his family, and his investors, and expressed regret at his actions. He agreed to forfeit more than $26 million.As U.S. attorney Geoffrey Berman said after the hearing, “As he admitted today, William McFarland tendered fake documents to induce investors and a ticket vendor to put more than $26 million into his company and the disastrous Fyre Festival. He now awaits sentencing for his admitted swindle.” Each of McFarland’s two wire fraud charges carries a maximum prison sentence of 20 years, though the judge will make the final decision regarding the sentence administered.As CNBC explains:The first count [of wire fraud] alleged that falsely represented his company’s financial well-being in order to secure investments for Fyre Media. … The Fyre Media CEO provided falsified documents that claimed millions in income earned from talent bookings. But in reality, the company only earned $57,443 for that period. McFarland also presented documents claiming more than 2,500 confirmed talent bookings in one month, when only 60 were confirmed in an entire year. … The U.S. attorney’s office said these misrepresentations created losses for at least 80 investors, totaling more than $24 million.The second count alleged that McFarland provided false income statements to a ticket vendor in order to get $2 million for a block of advance tickets to future festivals. Based off those misstatements, the vendor entered into an agreement with McFarland and Fyre which unconditionally guaranteed $2.4 million from the sales of those pre-purchased tickets.You may be asking yourself, with conditions as they were, how did McFarland and his team allow the event to go on at all? As he admitted in court on Tuesday, he had “grossly underestimated” the resources and infrastructure needed to produce an event of Fyre Festival’s initially alleged scale–and “grossly underestimated” sounds like a gross underestimation of the extent of the event organizers’ cluelessness.According to one person on the organizing team in an early interview with NY Mag, the actual, practical situation seemed utterly lost on those in charge. During a pre-event site visit, Ja Rule reportedly made a toast to the organizing team about the coming celebration: “To living like movie stars, partying like rock stars, and fucking like porn stars.” At a last-minute meeting with staff to discuss potentially canceling the festival before it started, one unnamed exec brushed off the serious concerns of the staff with the same hubris and delusions of grandeur that marred the entire operation: “Let’s just do it and be legends, man.” Yeah. Can’t make this shit up.McFarland’s sentencing is set for June 21st.Watch Fyre Festival’s flashy announcement video below: Fyre Festival Announcement Video[Video: Fyre Festival][H/T CNBC]last_img read more

first_imgKarl Denson’s Tiny Universe has announced a new studio album, Gnomes & Badgers, due out March 8th via Seven Spheres Records, marking the group’s first new recording in five years. In support of the 11-track new album, KDTU has shared the first single, “I’m Your Biggest Fan”, and added a new crop of tour dates.Today’s iteration of Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe features guitarist DJ Williams, lap steel guitarist Seth Freeman, trumpeter Chris Littlefield, organist David Veith, bassist Chris Stillwell, and drummer Zak Najor. On the studio album, the band is joined by The Rolling Stones keyboardist and Allman Brothers Band alum Chuck Leavell, guitar-slinging singer-songwriter Lukas Nelson, New Orleans guitar hero Anders Osborne, Austin producer and multi-instrumentalist Adrian Quesada, and NOLA R&B royal Ivan Neville.Check out the album’s first single, “I’m Your Biggest Fan,”now:<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>As a press release notes about the new album:Throughout ‘Gnomes & Badgers,’ singer and saxophonist Karl Denson fronts the Tiny Universe as if he’s preaching the gospel. Merging funk, soul, rock, jazz, blues and more, his energy and spirit are contagious, while his songwriting speaks to a larger message of fellowship—across generations, genders, religions, and cultures. Not surprisingly then, Denson is none too pleased with the current state of political discourse. The result of this discontent is ‘Gnomes & Badgers’—his hard-grooving answer to these tragically divisive times.“As a writer and a human being, I’m affected by what goes on around me,” Denson says. “I’ve always been interested in politics, and what I’m seeing now just disturbs me. I saw this idea of Gnomes & Badgers—which are the different people in the world, the different parties on the left and the right—as a great way to frame the political debate and the debate about listening to each other.” He continues, “Somebody needs to say something, and hopefully, I can say it in a way that will make people reconsider how they think about things.”Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe will support Gnomes & Badgers with shows through May, including an official set at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on April 26th, as well as a tribute to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, at The Orpheum Theater on May 3rd, and summer festival appearances at High Sierra Music Festival and Floydfest. Denson then picks up his reoccurring role as touring saxophonist with The Rolling Stones on their U.S. summer tour. Additional shows will be announced shortly.‘Gnomes & Badgers’ Track Listing1.

first_imgBy Dialogo April 16, 2013 The bill was initiated after an incident in May 2012, in which Brazilian actress Carolina Dieckmann was blackmailed once her computer was hacked and 36 of her personal photos were taken from her computer and exposed to several websites. Prior to this law, the cybercrimes committed in Brazil were not defined as criminal offences, but treated as if they were a violation of communication, resulting in dubious interpretations and less severe penalties. *André Luís Woloszyn, Strategy Intelligence Analystcenter_img Beginning on April 2, laws against cybercrime in Brazil became effective after having been signed by President Dilma Rousseff in December 2012. The unprecedented legislation categorizes several crimes involving personal information stored on computers as illicit, with penalties of between six-months to two years of imprisonment for those who violate emails that may contain confidential information and data, either private or commercial in nature. Among other legal instruments, the law established further penalties ranging between three months to one year of imprisonment, plus a fine for those who “invade a third party electronic system with the intent of obtaining, modifying or destroying data or information without expressed authorization.” The same penalty will be applied to those who produce, offer, or sell programs that enable the invasion of third party systems and computers. For cases of services interruption, such as a 2011 incident in Brazil that represented the largest attack ever suffered by a government department, including sites from the presidential office and the Army, the penalty varies from one to three years in prison. last_img read more

first_imgComing off back-to-back road losses against Indiana and Penn State, the University of Wisconsin women’s basketball team (16-8, 5-6 Big Ten) is happy to be back at home. Inside the Kohl Center, the Badgers are an impressive 11-2 this season.”Home court has boded well for us in the past, and we hope that it holds true this week,” UW head coach Lisa Stone said at a press conference Monday.First, Wisconsin has a chance to avenge its disappointing performance in Bloomington, Ind., when it hosts the Indiana Hoosiers Thursday. Then, it faces Iowa in a primetime showdown Sunday.Playing Indiana twice in eight days is not surprising, considering the wackiness of the Big Ten schedule this season.”I think the schedule — it’s interesting for a lot of people,” Stone said. “We played three or four teams coming off a bye. We’ve played other teams a week apart, and some other teams in the league have done it like three or four times. … So it has been odd scheduling.”Even after the double-digit loss at Assembly Hall last Thursday, Stone doesn’t plan to change much entering this week’s rematch.”Our preparation in terms of the scouting report won’t be lengthy,” Stone said. “It’s fresh in [our] mind. We know what we need to do.”After the upsetting, winless week, Stone said the sub-par performances were byproducts of a lack of execution — not a lack of preparation.”It starts with our offense,” Stone said. “[Indiana’s] defense caused us to turn the ball over and led into transition baskets — so it starts with us. Finding better shots, being more patient, using the inside, using our post players more, having more inside post touches, ball reversals and more patience. That’s what we didn’t have last Thursday.”Stone is convinced the team’s execution won’t be a problem this Thursday.”We will be more prepared in terms of making sure that we get touches in different areas and get a higher-percentage shot,” Stone said. “That led to a transition game, but then once you get in a transition, it’s a number of things. It’s … tracking the ball, containing the ball handler, and then running the floor with the post players.” Triple threatJunior guards Jolene Anderson and Janese Banks continue to play well and score in bunches in the Badger backcourt. Still, Stone’s squad has yet to find a consistent third or fourth scorer.”It needs to be someone, and where it comes from has differed,” Stone said. According to Stone, freshman guard Rae Lin D’Alie has stepped up at times, and is good when she can get to the rim. Forward Brittany Heins was inserted into the starting lineup last week for her recent strong play, but her lack of scoring punch remains evident by her nine points in her last three games. Mariah Dunham and Caitlin Gibson have also shown signs of life. But outside of Banks and Anderson, no Badger has displayed the type of consistency to fill the role of third option for Stone’s offense.While No. 1 scoring-option Anderson has been putting up big second-half numbers of late, she doesn’t seem to get enough touches down the stretch, especially in last week’s defeats. But Stone assured the media her standout guard remains the go-to player during crunch time.”I think near the end of the game you think about who needs the basketball,” Stone said. “And when you try to find 41 (Anderson) and you can get the ball in her hands, good things usually come.”A lack of consistency on the road and in finding a third-scoring option has hurt the Badgers all season, but Stone remained positive and confident about the upcoming week.”I’m excited about the fact that we’ve showed tremendous progress from game to game,” Stone said. “It’s going to be nice to be back home and hopefully [we’ll have] a much different outcome.”last_img read more
