AAA Limerick candidates take the plunge to fight water charges


first_imgTwitter Watch the streamed gig for Fergal Nash album launch NewsLocal NewsAAA Limerick candidates take the plunge to fight water chargesBy Alan Jacques – March 21, 2014 937 Facebook Emma Langford shortlisted for RTE Folk Award and playing a LIVE SHOW!!! this Saturday #HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boy #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement Cian Prendiville of the Anti Austerity Alliance addresses a public meeting on water charges in Corbally.LIMERICK’s Anti Austerity Alliance local election candidates have launched a campaign against the imposition of water charges.The party, which recently opened new offices at Lock Quay, recently held a series of public meetings in locations across the city, in a first step towards organising a community-based campaign against what they deem as the “water charges rip-off”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up According to AAA candidate for Limerick East, Paul Keller, hundreds of people in the city signed a pledge to only vote for candidates who will fight water charges.Speaking at a public meeting in Castletroy, local AAA candidate Madelyn Portley commented, “We have beaten water charges before and we can beat them again.”“In the late 1980’s people such as AAA member Joe Harrington led a mass campaign of non payment which beat the water rates then. These meetings are the first step towards organising a community-based campaign along the same lines to beat them again,” she said.Meanwhile, AAA candidate for Limerick North, Cian Prendiville, told those who attended a meeting in Corbally, that water charges expose all the Government’s “propaganda” about recovery.“They say there’s recovery, yet they are planning more austerity taxes? They say we need ‘discipline in public finances’ but then throw millions in bonuses to Irish Water bosses and consultants. They claim to want to conserve water, but the state is the biggest waster of water, with 41 per cent of water leaking from the network. They should spend the money fixing the leaks, not imposing another bill which people simply do not have the money to pay,” Mr Prendiville concluded.center_img Previous articleYouth justice worker Frankie goes to the pollsNext articleNoel pledges council salary to local groups Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie New Music: 40Hurtz Celebrating a ground breaking year in music from Limerick WhatsApp Linkedin TAGSAnti Austerity AllianceCian PrendivilleMusic LimerickWater Charges Print Emaillast_img read more

The petition is filed by Late G B Kulkarni Memorial Legal Trust, through its President Dr Vinod G Kulkarni. The plea states during the lock down certain class of people are deprived of consuming alcohol in any form or quantity. Social drinking has been in existence in India from time immemorial and Hindu scriptures mention that people during that period did consume Soma Rasa, regularly, the plea states. Dr Kulkarni , a psychatrist  says that alcohol if consumed in limited quantities is a relaxant of the body and mind. Many people do social drinking of alcohol and they are not branded as ‘Alcohol Addicts’. Due to the lockdown the public is deprived of procuring liquor which is resulting in mental depression, anxiety, hysteria outburst and abnormal behaviour. Alcohol withdrawal can result in a dangerous condition called ‘Delirium’, which is a medical emergency with significant morbidity and mortality. Further, depriving social drinkers from alcohol amounts to violation of Article 21 of the Constitution of India. The plea also mentions that there have instances in Karnataka, where people have committed suicide due to non-availability of alcohol. On April 2, the High Court of Kerala, stayed the order issued by the Kerala Government on March 30 as per which Excise Department can permit supply of alcohol to a person on production of a medical certificate to the effect that he is suffering from alcohol withdrawal syndrome. Justices A K Jayasankaran Nambiar had said “We are concerned that the State Government has taken a unilateral decision to administer more alcohol to persons suffering from alcohol withdrawal syndrome. This is disturbing. This is a recipe for disaster.” As per Kerala Government Order, a person should get a certificate from the doctor regarding alcohol dependency. The guidelines explained those having ‘alcohol withdrawal symptoms’ can approach the outpatient department of any government run hospital,including medical colleges. The consulting doctor can issue a prescription or ‘opinion’ in writing certifying that the patient is having withdrawal symptoms. Once the prescription is submitted to the excise department range or circle office, along with an application in prescribed format and government provided identity proofs, the ‘pass’ can be issued by the concerned authority. It is the duty of the excise office to inform the Managing Director of the Kerala State Beverages Corporation on the permit given to each and every patient. They also have to provide permissible levels of IMFL as per the ‘Abkari Act’ of Kerala. Next Storylast_img read more

He said these would all be wrapped up within a new charter of private tenants’ rights.“We will tackle soaring rents in the private rented sector through regulation,” Jeremy Corbyn also announced on his campaign website.Labour also plans to build a million new homes including half a million new council properties during its first five years in office.“We will rebuild and transform Britain by building council homes and homes that first-time buyers can afford,” he says.Priorities“There are obviously many priorities but the crisis of housing and setting in train a housing programme that would build more council housing at socially affordable rents and ensuring there is proper regulation of the private rental sector is a very high priority for me,” Jeremy Corbyn told The Guardian.Labour strategists believe housing is one of the key concerns of ‘generation rent’ while official figures show there are over a million people on local authority housing lists.And Research by Which? released over the weekend reveal that getting on – and staying on – the property ladder are one of the three most important concerns for half of all 18 to 34 year-olds and 28% of all ages.lettings Jeremy Corbyn Labour Party General Election 2017 PRS rental sector May 9, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Italian Navy retires two more Minerva-class corvettes


first_img The Italian Navy retired two Minerva-class corvettes, ITS Fenice and ITS Sfinge, during a May 29 ceremony at the Augusta Naval Base.The formal flag-lowering ceremony, attended by Italian Navy Chief of Staff Admiral Valter Girardelli and the Commander in Chief Admiral Donato Marzano, marked the end of almost 30 years of service for the corvettes.With the decommissioning of Fenice and Sfinge, the Italian Navy’s Minerva-class of eight boats is now left with only two active vessels, ITS Driade and ITS Chimera.ITS Fenice and ITS Sfinge will be recycled unlike their four predecessors which were sold to Bangladesh and now serve as Leader-class offshore patrol vessels with the Bangladesh Coast Guard.In July 2015, Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri and Bangladesh Coast Guard signed the contract to upgrade and convert the corvettes into Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs), and to provide the related logistics support services.By decommissioning the ships, the Italian Navy is continuing its process of downsizing its ageing fleet. The navy also estimates the vessel count will decline by 65% within the next decade.

Listen To ‘Who Knows?’ From Jimi Hendrix’s Last Show With The Band of Gypsys


first_imgWith the legendary status of Jimi Hendrix and The Band of Gypsys, it is hard to believe that the actual band only played together three times before the guitarist’s unfortunate passing. Hendrix secured bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles for the live recording of the Band of Gypsys album at The Fillmore East on January 1st, 1970. There, the band went into some deep-exploration mode, laying down eight tracks for what would ultimately be Hendrix’s last recording.After two more performances, including the final show at the Winter Festival For Peace in January 28th, 1970, The Band of Gypsys would never perform again. A few months later, Hendrix unfortunately passed away, and the rest is history.Listen to audio of the track “Who Knows?” from that performance, courtesy of Zulu Crunchbunch & the Unstables:RIP Jimi Hendrix.[via Society of Rock]last_img read more
