The housing waiting list is getting longer. And less social houses are being built, it has been claimed.A meeting will take place in Pery’s Hotel this Thursday, October 29, at 8pm to address the housing crisis and these specific issues.A teenage boy whose family was recently homeless while he was doing his Leaving Cert will speak openly about his own experiences. Jackie Bonfield of Mid West Simon Community and the Anti Austerity Alliance’s general election candidate for Limerick City, Cllr Cian Prendiville, will also speak at this free event.Cllr Prendiville feels those suffering the most from the housing crisis are being ignored. However, he believes, the water charges movement is proof that by standing together, the Government can be forced to take notice.“Rents in Limerick are going through the roof, as the housing waiting list gets longer and longer. Despite a lot of hot air, the Government still refuses to take real action on housing. They have built less social houses than any government for 45 years,” said Cllr Prendiville.“The Government has allowed the market to hold back the supply of homes and push up the prices. While over 5,000 families are on the housing list in Limerick, so far this year only 10 social houses have been built,” he added.This, the City North representative maintains, has given landlords a golden opportunity to drive up rents, while the Government refuse to implement rent controls.“With one quarter of the TDs in the Dail landlords themselves, is it any wonder?” he asked.According to Cllr Prendiville, Thursday night’s meeting is hoped to be the launch of a campaign to demand immediate action on the housing and rent crisis.“The AAA have helped coordinate protests and occupations of vacant and NAMA properties, to demand real action. We want to build a similar campaign here in Limerick to demand rent controls, and the right to a home for all,” he concluded.

Charter school to make cutbacks

first_imgRick de la Torre, a spokesman for the L.A. county education office, said officials there are still evaluating Gorman’s response to the audit. Jesse Barajas, a commission member and principal of a charter school in San Jose, said he voted for the reduced funding level to ensure Gorman administrators take seriously allegations of misconduct. “It really sends the message to them that they really need to have their finances in order,” Barajas said.

A Redlands-based charter school accused of fiscal mismanagement will implement layoffs and consider campus closures after a state commission decided to award the school 60 percent of the public funding it could have received this year. The Gorman Learning Center will slash staff this month, said Cynthia Markham, the school’s recently hired interim executive director. She added that shuttering one or more of Gorman’s six learning centers – located in Whittier, Pasadena, Redlands, Rancho Cucamonga, Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita – could be a possibility next year. “We need to sit down and go through the entire budget, position by position, and any position that is not absolutely essential to the educational program for children is going to be eliminated immediately,” Markham said Monday. Reductions at Gorman come in response to a decision Friday by the Advisory Commission on Charter Schools, which advises California’s State Board of Education on issues including funding for charters specializing in independent – and home-study. Charters operate using state money, but because they’re meant to foster creativity in education, they’re not subject to many laws governing traditional public schools. An audit requested by the Los Angeles County Office of Education alleged that Gorman claimed $7.7 million in undeserved state funding over three years, and that the school’s former executive director, Waldo Burford, spent public money on items such as alcohol, a $20,000 aquarium and trips to cities where his daughters live. Gorman has contested some of the findings, saying auditors miscalculated the school’s student-teacher ratios and the amount the charter spent on instruction – data that factors into how much state money a school should get. Noting that Burford has resigned, Markham said Gorman will appeal the commission’s decision. last_img read more

Samsung Galaxy A (2019) Series to come with three rear cameras, in-display fingerprint sensor

first_imgThe Samsung Galaxy A series of the next year is going to be a special series of phones. The ongoing reports and rumours suggest that Samsung could loosen its purse strings for the hardware of its Galaxy A (2019) series of phones.There are reports that Samsung Galaxy S10 could be the first phone from Samsung to come with triple rear cameras but the latest report hints that Galaxy A 2019 series phone could be the first phone from Samsung to sport three cameras on back.We have seen reports that say that Galaxy S10 could be the first Samsung device to sport in-display fingerprint sensor. But this may also change if the in-display fingerprint technology debuts on some of Samsung Galaxy A (2019) series phones. While the Galaxy S10 is expected to feature an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor, Samsung may introduce a cheaper optical scanner for its Galaxy A phones. The quality of the two sensors will be different. The premium Galaxy S10 will have a better quality of sensor than the Galaxy A series phone.According to a report from The Investors, Samsung plans to add high-end features like in-display fingerprint sensor and triple camera lens to its Galaxy A series of phones this year. Apparently, this is to boost the sales of budget phones as the sales figure of Samsung flagship phones have not been very good this year. Reportedly, the sale of Galaxy S9 sale is the slowest of any Samsung flagship phone since the Galaxy S3. The company managed to sell just 9 million units of Galaxy S9 in the second quarter.advertisementSamsung Display, the display manufacturing unit of Samsung, is also working on unbreakable OLED panels. These panels have received certification from Underwriters Laboratories (UL), the official testing company for OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the US Department of Labor. The UL certification means that the panel is ready to use in the consumer products. Until mow there were rumours that Samsung could use this display in its Galaxy X phone but now when the company is planning to bring in high-end features to its Galaxy A series phones, it wouldn’t be wrong to expect the unbreakable OLED panels in Galaxy A series phones too.last_img read more
