REVEALED: WIND FARMERS TOLD MASTS NEED PLANNING PERMISSION

first_imgDONEGAL County Council has been told to order wind farm developers to remove two masts which have been erected illegally.An Bord Pleannala says the council has known for over a year that two of three masts erected in the Finn Valley needed planning permission and no application was made.“After numerous attempts to get clarification from the council since January 2015 regarding the legality of the erection of three meteorological masts on site of the proposed Carrickaduff development, this week ABP confirmed what we already knew that two of the masts are not exempt from planning permission and should not have been erected on site.” said Marie Scanlon from the Finn Valley Wind Action group. “We are concerned that the local authorities did not take appropriate action when the masts were first erected and is now calling for Donegal County Council to take immediate action against the developer, ensure the masts are removed and proper planning procedures are adhered to.“The council knows that there is a statutory obligation on the developer regarding this issue and we await for appropriate action to be taken on this matter.” REVEALED: WIND FARMERS TOLD MASTS NEED PLANNING PERMISSION was last modified: February 16th, 2016 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:finn valleywind farmlast_img read more

Letterkenny Hospital spends €1M on private ambulances so far this year

first_imgThe HSE spent nearly €7 million on private ambulances in the first eight months of this year including €1 million at Letterkenny University Hospital.This is a sharp increase on the €4.3m spent in all of 2014.The spend on Letterkenny Hopsital is the biggest across the country. The National Ambulance Service responds to emergency calls 24 hours a day but often struggles to meet the level of demand.The HSE contracts a number of private companies to assist with deal with less urgent cases.New figures show the HSE spent just under €7m on external ambulances in the first eight months of this year.Lifeline Ambulance Service is one of the private providers the HSE employs and David Hall, the owner, said his company got €2.4m from the HSE in first eight months of this year. “Use of private ambulance services nationwide will always be good value for money based on the need,” said Mr Hall.“In the absence of this service, the health service would come to a standstill.”Sinn Féin’s health spokesperson Louise O’Reilly disagrees saying that the money spent would be better used if it was invested into the public sector.“It is the responsibility of management within the HSE to ensure that they are investing sufficient money and indeed it is the responsibility of the Minister to ensure that they are investing sufficient money in directly employed labour and keeping the ambulance fleet upgraded,” said Ms O’Reilly.The HSE’s spend on private ambulance has gradually increased in recent years, from €4.3m in 2014 to €8.1m in 2017.

Asian Games was a trailer, you will watch full film at Tokyo Olympics: Army chief Rawat

first_img(Eds: Minor edit in 10th para) New Delhi, Sep 5 (PTI) They have contributed 11 out of the 69 medals in country’s highly successful Asian Games campaign but chief of Indian Army, General Bipin Rawat, termed it as “only trailer” as the full length movie will be released during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. “I want to congratulate the entire contingent and I am not just talking about the medal winners. Some won medals and some did not perform up to the mark but I am hopeful that they will continue to work hard. Asian Games was just a trailer and you will get to watch the full movie during Olympics. That’s our endeavour for Mission Olympics,” Rawat told media after felicitation of the Army athletes. The Chief of Army Staff said that he expects more medals in future marquee events. “We had 73 representatives of the Indian Army which included 66 athletes and seven coaches, who were a part of the Indian contingent. We won 11 medals including 4 gold and 4 silver and 3 bronze medals. I expected even more but I am not disheartened. I know that they will train harder, be more determined to win many more laurels for the country.” Rawat said that most of the athletes who interacted with him on Wednesday requested the Army to help them get more international exposure. “They spoke to me about need for international exposure. They want to compete with world’s best athletes on a regular basis, have access to state-of-the-art training abroad. This exposure boosts an athlete’s confidence. We have seen our athletes perform well at home but at times fail due to stage fright in overseas conditions.advertisement “That’s why international exposure with good foreign coaches will be of great help with only two years left for the Tokyo Olympics,” the Army chief said. Rawat was all praise for the Indian equestrian team that won two silver medals and promised that Army is on course to buy quality horses of foreign breed. “There are lot of events where we haven’t won medals earlier but during this edition we have won medals. We have never won any medals in Equestrian after 1982 Delhi Asiad. This time we won two silver medals in the Equestrian. “We are in process of buying new horses. The 61st Cavalry of Indian Army has been tasked to buy new horses from foreign land. We will buy good horses so that riders can train here. However we would also see to it that they can train in foreign countries.” There are five specific sports units of Army that are working on Mission Olympics which include Army Sports Institute, Army Rowing Node, Army Yatching Node, Army Equestrian Node and Army Marksman Unit . “All our nodes are working on the Mission Olympic programme. But we are not working in isolation. We are getting a lot of support from the Sports Ministry. We have some fields where we specialise — like boxing, shooting and rowing. These are some of our specialities. We would continue to work with sports ministry,” General Rawat concluded. PTI KHS BSBSKHSlast_img read more

Mike Gundy turns 50 on Saturday, 10 years removed from his epic “I’m a man, I’m 40” rant that made him a YouTube sensation.The OSU head coach has grown leaps and bounds as a coach — far removed from the personality who went viral as a 40-year-old youthful head coach defending his player in an article written by a local media outlet.Nowadays, Gundy hunts snakes and grows mullets in his free time. So it’s easy to reflect back on that rant with a good laugh. In fact, let’s do that, shall we?AdChoices广告It’s still so good!Here’s my five favorite quotes from 3 minutes and 19 seconds of the most viral moment in Gundy’s tenure.5. “This was brought to me by a mother, of children!”4. “Makes me want to puke!”3. “That ain’t true!”2. “The editor that let it come out is garbage!”1. “I’m a man, I’m 40!”last_img read more

Breaking Down Mike Gundy’s 104 Wins

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. One-hundred and four wins. An astonishing number. That’s 42 more than Pat Jones who was the previous record holder in Oklahoma State coaching history. Gundy is more than a full Jimmy Johnson (30-25-2) ahead of Jones, and there is no sign of slowing down any time soon.There have been blowouts (Savannah) and nail-biters (all the Kansas State games). There have been ugly, slogging affairs (Montana State). There have been barn-burning shootouts (every Tech game). There have been unranked road wins and highly-ranked home losses. When you’ve coached 154 games in your career there will be a little bit of everything.So let’s look at them. How good is Gundy on the road against the spread? What about at home when getting 3+ turnovers? What about in bowl games? We did this exercise last year before Gundy topped the century mark, and it was a lot of fun so I thought we should bring it back this season before the games get cranking.

After leaving attacker Carlos Vela on the bench against Germany in last year’s 4-1 Confederations Cup defeat, he’s handing a start to the LAFC forward in Sunday’s World Cup match against the reigning champion.Vela is joined in attack by Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, Mexico’s all-time leading scorer, and Hirving Lozano, who enjoyed a breakout season with PSV this year.Miguel Layun is set to start in the middle. The Veracruz native traditionally lines up as a fullback, but both his club and Osorio have tried him out in midfield in the past few months and enjoyed the results. Sevilla has played Layun in a more attacking role than Osorio did with Layun playing as one of the two ‘interior midfielders’ in the 4-3-3.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Perfection from Pulisic: Chelsea’s Captain America has arrived in the Premier League Why always Raheem? ‘Unplayable’ Sterling setting a standard Man City’s other stars need to match ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar With Layun in the midfield, Jesus Gallardo is set to make his World Cup debut at left back.
