Further cuts to garda resources expected

first_imgNewsLocal NewsFurther cuts to garda resources expectedBy admin – May 2, 2012 589 GARDA resources are set to be further cut in Limerick in the next 12 months, with preparations already underway to cope with additional pressure on the force. Chief Superintendent, Dave Sheehan said that the division had no choice but to meet the extra demand on resources following cuts. “We know where numbers are set to fall in the next 12 months and have made plans to cope with them,” he told the meeting, attended by cllrs, TDs and senior garda members. “It’s difficult but there’s nothing we can do”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Gardaí in Limerick have already had to face the closure of two rural stations, a reduction in patrol cars and an embargo on recruitment.And Chief Supt. Sheehan said the closure of further garda stations could not be ruled out.He also praised the work of the garda reserve unit.“Even now preparing rosters is difficult; We are acutely aware of government policy and have to use the resources we have in the division to provide the service.“The garda reserve takes off a bit of the pressure.“In the course of the college rag weeks and Thomond Park events, we couldn’t cope without them”.Cllr James Collins highlighted the vacant position of superintendent in Askeaton and queried the policy in the case of a serious crime in the vicinity.“We have a fallout situation in the case of an emergency that is not dependent on having a superintendent in Askeaton,” the head of the Limerick garda division replied.“Inspector Eamon O’Neill is currently acting supt. and in the case of a crime scene, whoever’s on call will attend as all superintendents cannot be away at the same time”.Cllr Kevin Sheahan called for less Joint Policing Committee meetings for the individual authority and for more at a district level.“Once a year for these meetings is enough; I hate to see individuals and resources overstretched”.Chief Supt. Sheehan agreed, saying that the meetings should be more strategic in content and that issues “such as wandering horses” should be dealt with at local level.

Alleged Charlottesville car attacker may claim self-defense, lawyer suggests

first_imgAlbemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail(CHARLOTESVILLE, Va.) — The man who faces charges for ramming his car into a crowd during the infamous white nationalist rally that rocked Charlottesville in 2017 may claim that he did so in self-defense.Attorney John Hill told the jury pool that evidence will show James Alex Fields “thought he was acting in self-defense.”The revelation came as lawyers in Virginia are working to pick the jury that will hear the case against Fields, who faces a first-degree murder charge for killing counter-protester Heather Heyer in the incident. He also faces eight other charges relating to injuries and one relating to fleeing the scene of an accident.The 10 charges he is facing in this upcoming trial in the Charlottesville City Circuit Court are separate from the 30 federal charges he faces that relate to hate crimes. One of those federal charges is eligible for the death penalty.Fields, 21, entered a not guilty plea to the federal charges in August. Attempts by ABC News to reach Fields’ attorney were not immediately successful.The Charlottesville City Circuit Court has blocked off until Wednesday to complete jury selection and the trial can begin as soon as the jury is picked, according to Brian Wheeler, a spokesperson for the City of Charlottesville.Local newspaper The Daily Progress reports that there are 360 people in the pool of potential jurors — which it describes as the largest in recent memory.When the charges were announced, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that the federal indictments “should send a clear message to every would-be criminal in America that we aggressively prosecute violent crimes of hate that threaten the core principles of our nation.”In the case description by the U.S. Attorney’s office of the Western District of Virginia, Fields is described as having social media accounts in which he “expressed and promoted his belief that white people are superior to other races and peoples; expressed support of the social and racial policies of Adolf Hitler and Nazi-era Germany, including the Holocaust, and espoused violence against African Americans, Jewish people and members of other racial, ethnic and Religious groups he perceived to be non-white.”According to the federal indictment unsealed in late June, Fields drove from his home in Ohio to attend the “Unite the Right” rally at Emancipation Park in Charlottesville, which featured white supremacist leaders, and that he joined in “chants promoting or expressing white supremacist and other anti-Semitic and racist views.”After local authorities declared the rally an “unlawful assembly” and dispersed participants, Fields, according to the indictment, returned to his car and drove to where the counter-demonstration was occurring on Fourth Street in downtown Charlottesville. Protesters were chanting and carrying signs promoting equality and denouncing racial and other forms of discrimination. With no vehicle behind him, Fields slowly reversed his vehicle to the top of a hill, according to the indictment.“Fields then rapidly accelerated, ran through a stop sign and across a raised pedestrian mall, and drove directly into the crowd, striking numerous individuals, killing Heather Heyer, and injuring many others,” the indictment alleges. “Field’s vehicle stopped only when it struck another vehicle … He then rapidly reversed his vehicle and fled the scene.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

By under-declaring the true level of tax owed, this resulted in a loss of revenue to the Exchequer of at least £531,869 and Songnan Sun also secured somewhere between £50,000 and £60,000 for himself.On 4 December 2018 the Secretary of State accepted a disqualification undertaking from Songnan Sun, after he admitted preparing false annual accounts over a three year period and false tax returns over a four year period which allowed him to knowingly under-declare the true level of tax owed resulting in a loss of revenue of, at least, £531,869 from which Songnan Sun achieved personal gain.Effective from 25 December 2018, Songnan Sun is now banned for 10 years from directly or indirectly becoming involved, without the permission of the court, in the promotion, formation or management of a company.Robert Clarke, Chief Investigator of Company Investigation North at the Insolvency Service said: Office currently closed during the coronavirus pandemic.

Matt Rossetti – The Inverted Bowl – Where the upper deck is the new…

first_imgMatt Rossetti, President of ROSSETTI, an entertainment and stadium architecture firm, is the brain behind The Inverted Bowl, which is a rethink of the traditional entertainment venue. Coupling its slogan ‘The Upper Deck is the new Front Row,’ with a eye catching introductory video, it got our attention.We spoke to Matt about how The Inverted Bowl differs from traditional venues, and its possibilities when it comes to esports. Matt Rossetti, ROSSETTIEsports Insider: What is the Inverted Bowl and how did you come up with the idea?Matt Rossetti: The Inverted Bowl is something entirely new: a ground-up reimagining of arena design fundamentals that fuses arena excitement with the immersive qualities of an intimate setting. The upper tier of seating has been entirely reconfigured. As a result, instead of sloping away, The Inverted Bowl leans in, with balcony-style seating that catapults viewers closer to the action. The worst seats in the house become the best viewing areas, with broadcast quality views that are as much as 50 percent closer. This revolutionary design change opens up formerly single-use concourses and creates a range of new social spaces where fans can come together to experience the game or the show in new ways. The Inverted Bowl costs less to build and to operate, generates 20-30 percent more revenue, and—unlike traditional arena concepts—is specifically designed to integrate into urban environments. The result is a truly unique experience that immerses fans in the action in a way that has never been done before.ESI: Have you spoken to many from the world of esports who have embraced the idea?Matt: Those that I’ve spoken to have been extremely supportive and enthusiastic. I recently spoke at the 2017 Global Esports Executive Summit hosted by The International Esports Federation (IeSF), and I talked about the esports venue of the future. I spoke with esports athletes, promoters and IeSF representatives from a number of different countries, and scholars and experts from both inside and outside the industry.All of them were very receptive and enthusiastic about The Inverted Bowl and its potential for esports applications. “The worst seats in the house become the best viewing areas, with broadcast quality views that are as much as 50 percent closer”I think it’s clear that esports is a natural partner for The Inverted Bowl—and for other innovative concepts that prioritise an intimate, energised atmosphere and a high level of fan engagement. The Inverted Bowl was created with uses like esports in mind. The unique proximity to the stage not only allows spectators to be closer to the action, but allows the energy of the competition to really resonate. The viewing experience is just so different, providing optimal viewing proximity to the large event screens from balcony seating in the upper bowl and at the same time bringing more focus back onto the athletes themselves. And that heightened experience goes both ways: esports athletes are excited about competing in those venues, and with this kind of revolutionary design, a sports endeavor that can be somewhat insulated and isolating has the potential to become more communal, kinetic and atmospheric. That’s exciting!ESI: We’ve seen esports events hosted in the likes of the Bird’s Nest in Beijing to Wembley Arena in London, and the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Which venues have worked the best and provided the best experience that you know of? And moreover what are the drawbacks of some of these? Matt: Those are all iconic venues, but as spectacular as places like Beijing’s Bird’s Nest are, esports events really shine in spaces that allow the audience to be closer to the action. There is a certain degree of prestige and publicity that comes with hosting esports events in those grand facilities, but smaller multipurpose arenas like KeyArena in Seattle have been more popular and practical for regular competition.“As spectacular as places like Beijing’s Bird’s Nest are, esports events really shine in spaces that allow the audience to be closer to the action”You can do a lot with video screens and VR and AR integration in larger arenas, but the viewing experience is never great: you are essentially just watching a large screen from a distance. Nothing can replace the intimacy of true proximity. The ideal venue provides both the majesty and sense of theater of a traditional arena, along with the energy and engagement of a smaller space.ESI: In the next few years, and further down the line, how do you think VR will impact esports viewership and audience engagement at events?Matt: VR is already such an important part of playing esports, it’s only natural that it has—and will continue to—become an important part of viewing esports. That said, the idea that both the digital and the live experience can (and, to some extent, must) be immersive is a relatively new development. Outside of the arena environment, VR offers such a compelling and cost-effective alternative that live venues have to up their game: the live event has to keep pace with an improving virtual experience. The bottom line is that the next generation of event and live entertainment spaces need to be able to do two things simultaneously: provide a compelling alternative to the VR experience while also accommodating those VR and AR elements that can make an event like esports come to life.ESI: When do you anticipate a number of the top esports teams having their own purpose built venues?Matt: In a sense this is already happening in a couple of different ways. Some organisations and IP holders are building their own dedicated esports arenas, but these are typically scaled down facilities of just a few thousand seats at most. The Chinese Theatre in Hollywood has recently been retrofitted with some exciting new technology, including seating that moves and reacts to what is happening on screen—and that’s really interesting and encouraging, as well.“What seems more likely to us than a spike in purpose-built venues designed specifically for esports is that we will see a new generation of true multipurpose arenas“ As for larger, purpose-built arenas, I really think it’s just a matter of time. This year could potentially be a big year for esports, as it continues to emerge as a global force. The announcement this fall that the IOC is considering esports for inclusion in future Olympic games was enormously important, and I expect to see esports facilities continue to emerge and evolve. There’s no doubt that The Inverted Bowl is ideally suited for the intimacy, VR and AR integration, and tech-heavy presentation of esports. It’s a match made in heaven. But what seems more likely to us than a spike in purpose-built venues designed specifically for esports is that we will see a new generation of true multipurpose arenas. As esports continues to grow and become more popular, it will create one more compelling reason for developers, urban planners and civic officials to consider a new approach to arena design.ESI: What is currently holding back The Inverted Bowl and what challenges are you expecting?Matt: Honestly, the only missing ingredient at this point is a developer partner with the vision and foresight to embrace this game-changing concept and bring it to life. The key thing to remember with The Inverted Bowl is that it’s not a pie-in-the-sky theory: every element of this design has been thoroughly vetted and refined over the course of more than seven years of conceptualisation, feasibility studies and physical prototypes. Once an innovative, forward-thinking partner willing to embrace something different commits, we’re confident that the result will redefine arena design for decades—and perhaps even generations—to come.last_img read more

Allie…Allie…Allie…The Greatest of All Time

first_imgNo, not that Ali, but the achievements and accomplishments are no less amazing. This is Charles “Buddy” Allie of whom I speak. Allie is quite possibly one of the most dominant USA Masters Track and Field Champions in Pittsburgh, nationally, and for that matter, the world. Having just turned the young age of “65,” Allie rejoiced at a grand celebration at the Radisson hotel atop a brand new “Harley,” which he sprung for himself, that brought the house down for his three hundred plus family and friends in attendance. Prior to the event “Buddy” was ranked number one (1) in the world in the 60 — 64 age group in all of his running events, the 60, 100, 200, and 400 meters. (Karl Lewis who?) And he has competed in International World Championship Meets in Spain, Italy, England, France, Puerto Rico and Australia, just to name a few. He currently holds three World Records and one American Record. If that’s not enough (and trust me you can never get enough for track stars, they can go all day) in 2005 he was elected to the USA Masters Track and Field Hall of Fame and was selected USA Masters Track Athlete of the Year for his age group in 2008, 2009, and 2010.By now I know most of you are reasonably impressed. Not that Buddy expects that of you. He is one of the most quiet, unassuming superstars of his trade. As a matter of fact you could be in a room with him for “65” hours and you would never know he was a track phenom. That said, allow me to put this in some perspective for you. After turning “65” at a Potomac Valley Track Club Meet earlier this year, Allie shattered world records in the 200 and 400 meters with unbelievable times of 24.85 and 56.28; besting listed world records of 25.20 by American great Steve Robbins in 2008 and 56.37 by German legend Guido Mueller in 2004. (For all you now old and almost dead ex-city league track stars that means “Mr. Allie” is still kickin’ some world class butt while you’re catching a jitney from point “A” to point “B”.)Now you might think the story ends here but it doesn’t, for two reasons; #1. because the story ends when I say it does … and, #2 and way more importantly because with all those stats that’s not really what makes “Buddy” great. But here’s what does. He’s been a devoted husband to his beautiful and wonderful wife Jackie for “40 years” (now that’s a record for ya) a great father to Angie and B.J. A lifelong resident of Pittsburgh’s Northside, a retired middle school teacher at McNaugher, Columbus, Allegheny & Frick and girls basketball, soccer and softball coach; an Oliver High School and Hampton University Track Scholarship graduate; and not to be overlooked a well loved member of the Pittsburgh “Satin & Soul” Ballroom Dancers and the Pittsburgh “United Rays” Corvette Club. (And yep he’s the fastest there too… (oh shut-up Milton and Greg just enjoy the story).All that said he still finds time to provide leadership, support and inspiration to other senior athletes on staying fit and living a healthy life style as well as mentoring and training young athletes and special elite athletes such as world and Olympic Champion Kevin “Freight Train” Parker.Needless to say, I could continue to write about this local legend until I turn 65, which won’t be long from now, but as sure as I’m closing this chapter, “Buddy” is somewhere in the world about to break another world record … (Mama, there goes that man again!) Allie … Allie … Allie!!! MASTERS CHAMPION—Charles “Buddy” Allie, right, wins the World Masters Championship in Sacremento, Calif. in July 2011. He finished first in the 100 meters in the 60-64 age group. (Courtesy Photo) last_img read more

Top Gear Durban to celebrate Le Mans

first_img21 May 2013The Top Gear Festival takes place in Durban on 15 and 16 June, and among the attractions for motorsport lovers will be cars covering nine decades of racing, courtesy of the Franschhoek Motor Museum, which is marking the 90th anniversary of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.The museum’s collection exceeds 220 vehicles, ranging from an 1898 Beeston motor tricycle to a 2003 Ferrari Enzo supercar, with more than 80 exhibits on view at any one time.Its website – www.fmm.co.za – is a must-visit for petrolheads and includes an extensive gallery of the cars, including photos from the Top Gear Festivals of 2011 and 2012, interesting information on those cars, a regularly updated blog, and the opportunity to sign up for the museum’s monthly newsletter.13 iconic racing carsOn display at the Top Gear Festival will be 13 iconic racing cars, spanning the 1920s to the present day, starting with the Bugatti Type 35B, which is a fine example of the car that won the 1929 French Grand Prix. Incredibly, given the times, it was capable of a top speed of 211 km/h.The procession continues with the 1939 Lagonda LM and 1954 Morreti 750S Bialbero Spider Grand Sport. The Morreti qualified for the 1955 Le Mans, but due to an accident the day before the final event it arrived too late to take up its place on the grid – even so, today this car is still eligible for Classic Le Mans.The impressive Le Mans tribute continues with the 1957 Lotus Eleven 750. It had several class victories at Le Mans, resulting in the Eleven becoming Lotus’ most successful race car design.The 1953 Austin Healey 100 will also be making its way to Top Gear Festival. The “100” name comes from Donald Healey, who selected the name from the car’s ability to reach 100 mph (160 km/h), as opposed to the Austin-Healey 3000, which is named for its 3 000cc engine.Aston MartinTwo Aston Martins will be on show: the 1954 DB3S and the 1964 DB4GT.The DB3S was built as a replacement for the heavy and uncompetitive DB3 and is one of only 31 examples ever built. The DB4GT is the same car that won its debut race at Silverstone and raced alongside the Le Mans-winning DBR1 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.Another car that embodies the spirit of Le Mans is the 1955 Jaguar D-Type. The D-Type’s structural design was revolutionary at the time and it won the Le Mans 24- hour race in 1955, 1956 and 1957.The tribute continues with the 1971 McLaren M6. The McLaren M6A was developed by the Bruce McLaren Motor Racing team for their entry in the 1967 Can- Am season.
