We provide the essential connectivity service within our wider region enabling the continued development and growth of commerce and tourism.  Shannon Group strongly supports the National Planning Framework. It is critical to delivering the environment to achieve effective regional development.  The Framework will create an environment that promotes effective economic development across the regions and relieves the pressure on Dublin.”Shannon Group confirmed that its passenger numbers  increased for the fourth consecutive year since independence in 2013, with over 1.748 million passengers flying through the airport, a 2% increase on 2015 and a 24% increase since separation in 2013.  Shannon Airport currently operates services to 35 destinations in 11 countries and last year gained new routes including to Edinburgh, winter services to Fuerteventura and Malaga, additional flights to Lanzarote and additional capacity on a range of existing routes.2016 was a positive year in terms of new business development for the airport, with four airlines – Scandinavian Airlines, Lufthansa, Norwegian Air International and Kuwait Airways – all announcing operations at Shannon. This is the first time in 10 years that four carriers, new to the Shannon schedule, announced services in one year.Shannon Heritage experienced significant growth in 2016, with visitor numbers at its day-time attractions and evening entertainment venues in Clare, Limerick, Galway and Dublin growing by 30% overall. In all, over 904,000 people visited the popular visitor attractions, which include Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, King John’s Castle and Malahide Castle and Gardens. Also included in these figures, for the first time, is the Shannon Heritage managed GPO Witness History visitor centre, which opened in Dublin at the end of March 2016 and attracted over 160,000 visitors in its first nine months.

Group discusses diversity, inclusion

first_imgIn Wednesday night’s Student Senate meeting, senior Luis Llanos, chair of the diversity council, and junior Carolina Ramirez, student government liaison to the diversity council, presented the council’s resolution in support of recent changes to community life and its recommendations to the University for moving forward. Ramirez said the resolution praises the University’s many useful resources for combating discrimination and harassment on campus, including speakup.nd.edu. “We’ve also received a lot of great feedback for the new training that rectors and hall staff went through,” she said. “Our goal is to make sure everyone feels welcome in the dorms regardless of their backgrounds.” However, Llanos said the resolution proposes suggestions for improvement in these areas. “We’re requesting that a visible statement of inclusion be placed in each classroom,” Llanos said. “This is about making sure everyone – students, faculty and staff – feels ‘at home under the dome.’” The resolution also recommends Halal and Kosher foods be made accessible to students with dietary restrictions, that it be made mandatory for faculty and staff to attend diversity in-services, that the University add a “cultural enrichment” course requirement, and that Notre Dame increase efforts to recruit and retain ethnically and culturally diverse faculty members. Senior Daniel Colston, director of internal affairs, said the crucifix that already hangs in each room on campus is already an effective symbol of inclusion.  “If I were to say a racially insensitive slur, seeing a piece of paper up on the wall wouldn’t prevent me from doing that more than Jesus would,” he said. The resolution also suggested rectors be “required to collaborate in the process of choosing a Freshman Orientation staff.”  “We want to get the word out to students – especially students from diverse backgrounds – that it’s important to be a part of their dorms. … What we hope to do is to push them to be a part of the Frosh-O staff so that the freshmen have a better time,” Llanos said. “… Frosh-O can really play a huge role in how your freshman year goes, and we really want everyone to have someone not only they can trust, but who can empathize with them.” Alumni Hall senator Juan Jose Daboub said the suggested changes to Frosh-O are too extreme. “I feel like we’re trying to put people in a bubble and protect them from all of this. And it’s great that we’re trying to help them, but what if in the end we’re actually hindering them?” Daboub said. “What if they get into the real world and they realize they’re not going to be babied?” Llanos said he does not think these measures “baby” students.  “The only thing we’re looking for is for people to feel at home. It’s not babying, it’s just saying, ‘Hey, don’t transfer. Why are you miserable?’ I think that’s the Catholic thing to do,” Llanos said. Contact Margaret Hynds at [email protected]last_img read more

Govt sets up checkpoints to monitor people’s mobility between cities, provinces amid ‘mudik’ ban

first_imgRegions across Java have set up checkpoints to monitor the flow of vehicles between cities and provinces, following the government’s ban on Idul Fitri mudik (exodus), which started on Friday.The Transportation Ministry has prepared a number of checkpoints in areas surrounding Jakarta, including Tangerang in Banten, as well as Bekasi, Bogor, Sukabumi and Cikampek in West Java, to prevent people from leaving or entering the capital for the annual tradition.“We are gradually preparing [the checkpoints] on toll roads, national roads, provincial roads, even down to the so-called jalan tikus [alleyways] in districts,” the ministry’s land transportation director general, Budi Setiyadi, said in a press conference on Thursday. Read also: Indonesia suspends all passenger travel across cities to prevent Ramadan exodusThe checkpoints for land routes will be activated from Friday to May 31, in accordance with Transportation Ministerial Regulation No. 25/2020 regarding transportation use control during this year’s mudik period to prevent wider contagion of COVID-19 in the country.Under the regulation, the ministry has set restrictions on all passenger vehicles entering and leaving regions that have imposed large-scale social restrictions (PSBB), including Greater Jakarta and Greater Bandung in West Java.The roads, however, remain open, to accommodate vehicles carrying logistics and essential needs.Millions of Indonesians return to their hometowns every year – often traveling from urban centers to the countryside – to celebrate Idul Fitri, including those from capital Jakarta, a city where many people have migrated to from around the country in search of work.With Jakarta being the country’s epicenter of the outbreak, public health experts have warned that mudik could cause the contagious respiratory illness to spread rapidly across Java.President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo subsequently announced a ban on the Idul Fitri mudik on Tuesday after reviewing a Transportation Ministry survey that said 24 percent of the country’s 270 million people still planned to travel to their hometowns and that 7 percent had already left.The ministry held a meeting on Thursday with regional heads from Java, Bali and Lampung in Semarang, Central Java, to discuss preparations for monitoring the potential mudik flow.Read also: Recovered COVID-19 patient in Central Java urges people not to ‘mudik’Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo said the province had prepared 83 inter-regency monitoring checkpoints and inter-provincial monitoring checkpoints spread across the region.“For inter-provincial supervision, there are seven checkpoints, namely at Tegal terminal, Pejagan toll gate, Losari Brebes goods terminal, Wanareja terminal, Pungkruk toll gate, Klonengan Slawi Tegal rest stop and Dukuh Salam terminal,” Ganjar said after the meeting.The provincial administration will also add three checkpoints in its easternmost regencies as Surabaya and its neighboring regencies, Sidoarjo and Gresik, in East Java would start imposing partial lockdowns on Tuesday.Ganjar said he was reviewing plans to ensure the social security of people from the region who lived outside the province, especially those in Greater Jakarta, as they could not return to their hometowns due to the mudik ban.“If [the government] cannot guarantee [their social security], please let us know. We will set up public kitchens in Jakarta to help them,” he said.Read also: ‘I need to protect my family’: Jakartans nix homecoming trips following COVID-19 ‘mudik’ banGanjar said he had asked the Transportation Ministry to be flexible with the monitoring at checkpoints. “If there is a violation, just tell them to go back and if they disobey, they are to be quarantined,” he said.Acting transportation minister Luhut Pandjaitan, who is also the coordinating maritime affairs and investment minister, said regional governments were allowed to improvise and determine how strict they wanted to implement the monitoring, as long as the policy did not contradict the prevailing regulation.“The [transportation] ministerial regulation was formulated to accommodate but regional leaders are allowed to make adjustments. I have asked the land transportation director general to communicate with Central Java. We want to save lives,” Luhut said. (syk) In Tangerang, the ministry has readied a checkpoint at the Bitung toll gate to monitor vehicles heading from Jakarta to Merak, Banten, and vice versa. In Bekasi, a checkpoint has been established in areas bordering Karawang.The ministry has also prepared a checkpoint at Puncak Pass, a tourist destination bordering Bogor regency and Cianjur in West Java. In Sukabumi, meanwhile, a checkpoint has been set up in Cigombong, the border of Bogor regency and Sukabumi.A checkpoint has been set up at the 31-kilometer point on the Jakarta-Cikampek toll road on the border of Bekasi and Karawang, where authorities stood by to conduct inspections on vehicles passing the area.Private vehicles leaving Jakarta for West Java will be asked to make U-turn and return to the capital from West Cikarang.center_img Topics :last_img read more

At the same time, they don’t feel big pressure from United, Chelsea, from the team that could stay ahead of them so they have the fourth position more or less under control.‘One point here, one point there was enough for them to keep control. Probably the Champions League becomes step after step the dream for them. Maybe it took away the focus for them. I think this is quite a linear way to look at it.‘But, I am afraid that I’m wrong but also, I’m afraid that I’m right.
