We need a plan to ensure that post offices play a central role in the delivery of welfare payments and other Government services and we need that plan now.“The post office network will be decimated if the income from the welfare payments contract is lost,” he said.The Irish Postmaster’s Union (IPU), which represents 1,100 postmasters throughout the country, has launched a major campaign demanding that the Government produce an action plan to ensure the sustainability of the post office network.Another major threat to the viability of the post office network is the state savings business accounts which accounts for a third of the income of postmasters. The contract for this is up for renewal later this year.Postmasters will gather outside Leinster House on Wednesday, February 26 when a Dail motion proposed by the 16 members of the Technical Group of TDs will be voted on. The motion calls on the Government to deliver on their commitment to sustain the network as contained in the Programme for Government.via Post office network under threat | Limerick Post Newswrite.last_img read more

Category: ghlngzybbdxaatzd Naomi Osaka makes history of her own in US Open win over Serena Williams

first_img Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailChris Trotman/Getty Images/USTA(NEW YORK) — Naomi Osaka, winner of the U.S. Open Women’s Final, said that when Serena Williams hugged her at the end of the controversial match, it “really brought out the emotions” because “when I was little and I was watching her play, I always wanted the opportunity to play her.”The 20-year-old told ABC News Saturday evening that her historic win had not yet sunken in. Osaka’s straight-set victory, 6-2, 6-4, on Saturday made her the first Japanese player to win a grand slam singles title ever. In doing so, she at least delayed Williams from tying Margaret Court for the most grand slam titles in women’s tennis history.Speaking right off of Arthur Ashe Stadium court, Osaka reflected on the moment after the match when she returned to her seat and put a towel over her head as the ceremonial stage was being assembled.She said she did so because the momentous win was finally starting to dawn on her: “I felt like I needed a break from everything.”Saturday’s match was marred in controversy after coaching violations were called against Williams’ coach Patrick Mouratoglou. But Osaka had dominated in the first set, breaking Williams’ serve twice and cruising to a 6-2 win in barely over a half-hour.As the trophy presentation started, Osaka began to cry.Responding to a question from ABC News, Williams said at that moment her motherly instincts kicked in.“I felt like, ‘Wow, this isn’t how I felt when I won my first grand slam,’ so I was like, ‘I definitely don’t want her to feel like that,’” Williams said. “We’ve got to pull ourselves together here.”When they approached the net, following the match, Williams hugged Osaka and said she was proud of her, the champion said.The Women’s Tennis Association said in a statement following the match, “There are matters that need to be looked into that took place during the match. For tonight, it is time to celebrate these two amazing players, both of whom have great integrity.”Walking into Saturday, Osaka said she didn’t know how the match would end, but that “always in my dreams, I end up winning.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Category: ghlngzybbdxaatzd Bodleian gets a new chair

first_imgFor the third time in its history, the Bodleian library has commissioned a new chair design, after the winner of a prestigious competition was announced.After an initial 60 designers had been whittled down to just three, the award went to Edward Barber OBE & Jay Osgerby OBE with manufacturer Isokon Plus.  The chair will be developed over the next year to meet industry standards and will be launched in October 2014 alongside the newly refurbished Weston Library.The chosen design is a three-legged oak chair which the Bodleian described as “a contemporary response to the brief which combines a strong sense of craft heritage, sculptural form and complex reader requirements”. Although made from wood, the chair has been cleverly designed so as to allow tilting backwards and forwards, for those readers who are so inclined.According to the Bodleian, “The duo [Barber and Osgerby] identified the rear view of the chair as critical to the concept of the design – this is the aspect that will be most visible when the chair is in situ. Thus a strong vertical timber, echoing the spines of books on shelves, forms one of the three legs that attaches to the sled base. The generous circular form of the seat frame is echoed in the armrest and sled base – producing a strong but remarkably light oak chair.”The first chair designed for the Bodleian was a wooden Windsor chair in 1756, and cost 8s 6d per chair. 180 years later, Giles Gilbert Scott won the competition for a new chair and designed a leather-clad bucket one.At the moment, the Bodleian uses a mishmash of chairs, from a range of eras and in a variety of styles. This new chair looks to bring unity to a wildly disparate seating system.The news has had a positive response among students who agree that the current stock of chairs is too uncertain. Alice Rickett, a second year Classics and English student, commented, “Chairs are more important than we think. For too long, the Bodleian seems to have been following a less than vigorous chair selection policy, but hopefully this is now at an end. Now, chairs are the least of our worries, which is how it should be.”last_img read more

Category: ghlngzybbdxaatzd Analyst urges Premier to stabilise its trading

first_imgA leading City analyst has warned Premier Foods that it needs to stabilise its trading fast in order to survive the next 12 months. According to Martin Deboo, analyst at Investec Securities, the manufacturer, which owns the Mr Kipling and Hovis brands, needs to secure healthy profits during 2012, after the company announced in an unscheduled trading statement last Tuesday (17 January) that it was looking to double its cost reduction target to more than £40m by 2013.Deboo said that the 20%-plus share price bounce, on what amounted to a further profit warning, supported its thesis that “it is the growing prospect of a successful refinancing not current trading that is fuelling the share price”.”But we now have H2 trading profits down by nearly 40%, relative to 30% in H1, which at the time was characterised as a (semi) annus horribilis,” he added.Premier Foods said it was looking to save costs throughout the company, partly by cutting 5% of its 12,000 strong workforce around 600 employees. It also announced it would double the marketing spend behind its eight Power Brands, including dedicated TV advertising for its Mr Kipling and Hovis brands in the first quarter of 2012.Deboo said: “The news on increased marketing investment is good, but we doubt this will pay back too quickly. The prospect of a refinancing and further disposals keeps us on board the rollercoaster.”last_img read more

Category: ghlngzybbdxaatzd News story: Scottish Secretary discusses economic development in Argyll and Bute

first_img Traveling to Inveraray for a roundtable with a number of Argyll and Bute businesses. They discussed the challenges and opportunities of EU Exit, and the Government’s recently-published EU Exit White Paper. Mr Mundell also visited Loch Fyne Oysters and Fyne Ales to discuss the implications of Brexit for their businesses. On his two-day visit [Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29 August 2018], Mr Mundell’s programme included: Meeting the leader of Argyll and Bute Council, Aileen Morton, to discuss local economic issues and their proposals for a rural growth deal. I was pleased to have the opportunity to meet Argyll and Bute Council, HMNB Clyde and a number of local businesses to discuss the issues and opportunities for the local economy, and to hear more about the Council’s proposals for a rural growth fund. We also discussed the priorities of businesses as we prepare to leave the EU. The UK Government is determined to get a deal with the EU which works for Scotland and the rest of the UK – one which allows us to continue trading with the EU while also striking ambitious new trade deals around the world. Mr Mundell said:center_img HMNB Clyde is set to become the home of the UK’s entire submarine service from 2020, and the MOD is investing hundreds of millions of pounds in developing the base. In February 2017 the base, the UK government and the local authority Argyll and Bute signed a partnership agreement to ensure that the investment in the military site will benefit the growth and regeneration of the wider community.Mr Mundell added: Meeting personnel at HMNB Clyde in Helensburgh, to discuss the economic partnership between the local community and the base, and see newly-refurbished service personnel accommodation in the town. The work of the team at HMNB Clyde demonstrates clearly how Scotland benefits from the UK’s armed forces, and how our military contributes to the safety and prosperity of Scotland. The Faslane base makes a huge contribution to the local area, providing skilled jobs, supporting the local economy and contributing to regeneration. This project, which will improve service families’ accommodation, is a great example of that strong partnership with the local community in action.last_img read more
