Facebook CHILDREN at a special care unit in Limerick City went missing 35 times in the last 16 months, a report from the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) has revealed.The Tusla facility at Coovagh House, which caters for up to four children between 11 to 17 years of age, was found to be majorly non-compliant to acceptable standards in 21 out of 30 areas.The issues raised by the unannounced HIQA inspection over two days last July included excessive lock-ups and watching children on CCTV instead of interacting with them. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Inspectors found that not all children were safe while living in the Coovagh House. Some had absconded from the unit and placed themselves at significant risk. While meetings were held to address these risks, decisions taken at these meetings were not always effective at reducing risk for some children who continued to abscond,” the report stated.Inspectors found that some of the contract staff at the centre had no Garda clearance.“Care practices in the unit did not promote a positive approach to behaviour that challenges nor were they safe. These included needlessly locking doors throughout the unit and observing children via CCTV in lieu of directly engaging with them”.“The living environment was not fit for the purpose of providing safe and effective care. A door on a child’s room had not been replaced in over six months and, consequently, their privacy and dignity could not be fully maintained. While staff were dedicated, skilled, experienced and had the competencies to provide care, they were not sufficiently supported, supervised and provided with necessary training,” the report added. There were also problems with fire safety precautions, follow-on placements and other areas.Some staff were seriously assaulted during some incidents “yet despite this, they returned to work with the children indicating their dedication to providing consistent care”.Children told inspectors that while they understood the reason for being in special care, they were not happy to be there.“The living environment was not fit for the purpose of providing safe and effective care. This was found to be of significant risk on the last HIQA inspection in 2016 and little progress had been made since that time,” according to the report.Donal McCormack, Acting National Service Director for Tusla’s Residential Childcare Services, said the report highlights areas for improvement.“Tusla remains committed to improving our compliance with the national standards within special care. In conjunction with HIQA, we have created and begun to implement action plans in response to the report.”“We are putting measures in place to improve the services and standards in a timely and measurable way,” including the appointment of a permanent manager to Coovagh House and the recruitment of other key staff by the end of the year.

Facebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Saint Martin’s UniversityStudents and staff members at Saint Martin’s University will join forces with scores of other volunteer teams on Friday, September 27 for United Way’s 21st Annual Community to Community – Day of Caring service projects that will be occurring throughout Washington.This year, 48 representatives of the University will donate their time harvesting, weeding and expanding the community vegetable garden at Komachin Middle School in Lacey. The gardens are among a network of community gardens where fresh produce is grown and donated to the Thurston County Food Bank. The Food Bank considers the provision of more fresh vegetables to its clients a major part of its mission to eliminate hunger in the county. The food bank received approximately 295,000 pounds of fresh local produce from donors in 2010.The Saint Martin’s community will be working during the Day of Caring event in partnership with students and staff at Evergreen State College as part of Evergreen’s efforts to promote “Food Justice.” Food Justice includes the goals of healthy, affordable food for all, grown sustainably, and providing fair wages for food and farm workers.“This is a great way to help our community and to be part of the efforts of United Way and the Thurston County Food Bank. We will be working rain or shine,” says Susan Leyster, director of Service Immersion Programs at Saint Martin’s. “Day of Caring is a great way to connect our students, especially, with opportunities to expand their world. Events like this help to put a face on poverty, something that many of our students only read about.”Saint Martin’s staff and students will be tending the 18 raised garden beds that make up the Komachin community garden in two shifts, which will take place at 9 a.m. – noon and noon – 3 p.m.The largest, single day of volunteerism in Washington, Day of Caring in Thurston County this year is expecting 765 individuals from workplaces, church groups, neighborhood associations, and service clubs to volunteer in 40 projects within the county borders. Each project will benefit non-profit organizations and government agencies seeking additional help.

ARCADIA, Calif. (Dec. 30, 2016)–In his first try on turf, Vending Machine, who was a close third with a quarter mile to run, rallied to take Friday’s $75,000 Eddie Logan Stakes at Santa Anita by three quarters of a length, providing Norberto Arroyo, Jr. and Peter Miller with a stakes double. A Kentucky-bred colt by Hard Spun, Vending Machine got one mile on a turf course listed as good in 1:35.87.“I was grateful, thankful to have the horses I did going into both stakes today,” said Arroyo, who took the Kalookan Queen Stakes earlier in the day with Miller’s Bad Ju Ju and who also notched his third overall win on the afternoon. “I have been working both of Pete’s horses down at San Luis Rey (Downs, Training Center). They’re both doing very well and thank God they both showed up today.”Most recently second in the Grade III Cecil B. DeMille Stakes at Del Mar Nov. 27, Vending Machine was claimed by Miller five starts back for $50,000 on Sept. 2. Off at 12-1 in a field of nine 2-year-olds, he paid $26.20, $12.20 and $6.00.When asked about running Vending Machine on turf for the first time, Miller responded, “I trained his half-brother, Comma to the Top, and he won the Generous Stakes (Grade III, one mile) on the turf and being a Hard Spun, his progeny have done well on turf so I thought he’d like it.”Owned by the Sinnott Family Trust, Vending Machine registered his third win from seven starts and with the winner’s share of $47,520, he increased his earnings to $104,325.Favored at 2-1 with Drayden Van Dyke up, Soglio flew late to nab pacesetter Cistron for the place by a head. Soglio paid $4.20 and $3.00.Cistron, who assumed command right out of the gate, had a one length advantage on the winner turning for home but had to settle for third, 1 ¾ lengths in front of Curly’s Waterfront. Off at 3-1 with Luis Contreras, Cistron paid $3.20 to show.Fractions on the race were 23.86, 48.19, 1:12.52 and 1:24.29.Note: The Eddie Logan Stakes, run for the 11th time, is named in honor of Santa Anita’s iconic shoeshine attendant, who manned his concession from Santa Anita’s opening on Dec. 25, 1934, through New Year’s Day, 2009. Born on May 2, 1910, Logan, who was known to thousands as “The Footman,” died at 98 at his home in nearby Monrovia on Jan. 31, 2009. REFORMED CLAIMER BY HARD SPUN GETS MILE ON TURF IN 1:35.87
Donegal Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher has challenged the Government’s current state of readiness within the Marine sector for Brexit.He said the sector is the ‘poor relation’ when it comes to preparations for a post-Brexit context, as opposed to other sectors.“Yet, it is without doubt that the Irish Marine sector potentially has the most to lose if Brexit comes unstuck through present negotiations,” Deputy Gallagher said. “The Irish fish fleet depends greatly on access to UK and Scottish waters in catching their respective stocks.” The Fianna Fáil TD is calling on the Minister for the Marine and the Government to immediately summon a meeting of the entire Marine sector to deal specifically with Brexit consequences for the entire industry. “I request that the meeting focus on the potential chaos for the sector, the mayhem which will result in terms of access to UK and Scottish waters, potential for conflict at sea over fishing rights, even the threatened blockages of ports notwithstanding the massive destruction that will befall the Irish Fisheries Sector in a crash-out Brexit scenario. “Presently, with the continued uncertainty, the routine fishing patterns have already been disrupted due to fear of not knowing what is to happen in the near future,” added Pat the Cope. He said that the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine must act immediately and bring all seafood and Marine stakeholders together to set in place a forum specifically focused on Brexit.“The months ahead will be without doubt the greatest challenges to face the Irish Marine sector in our lifetimes,” concluded Pat the Cope.Brexit poses challenge of a lifetime to Marine sector – Pat the Cope was last modified: September 10th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:BrexitMarine
Meet Bonnie, the whistling orangutan. According to National Geographic News, she is giving evolutionary anthropologists something to talk about: the evolution of human language. NG reported on a new theory: Lead author Serge Wich of the Great Ape Trust of Iowa, said orangutans in Indonesia have been seen pretending to wash clothes. “We know they are capable of imitating these motor skills, but we never had any good indication of sounds for vocalization,” said Wich, who presented his research on December 18 during a symposium at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. The next step is to study how flexible sound-learning is in apes and whether they can adjust their sounds—pitch and intonation, for instance—depending on the context, Wich said. “Those things are very important because they give us clues to understanding the evolution of human speech,” he said.Charles Snowden of the University of Wisconsin, however, noted that Bonnie’s whistles are not as complex as those of some birds and dolphins. “Until now there has been little evidence of direct imitation of vocalizations by a primate,” Snowden said. “The really interesting question is why it is so difficult to find [more] good evidence of vocal imitation.”Everybody knows that birds evolved language from humans. That’s why they parrot us. Orangutans evolved whistling and clothes-washing from humans, too. That’s why they ape us. You’ll notice that the honorable, reliable, rational, scientific, enlightened National Geographic Society had no qualms about printing the latest Darwinian silliness. Maybe they should stick to taking photos; that’s about all they brag about these days.(Visited 17 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
Lewis Hamilton lapped faster than ever at Monaco as the Mercedes driver and Ferrari’s championship leader Sebastian Vettel set the pace in first practice for Formula One’s showcase race on Thursday.The triple world champion, who can equal the 65 career pole positions of boyhood idol Ayrton Senna in Saturday’s qualifying, topped the timesheets with a best lap of one minute 13.425 seconds on ultrasoft tyres.Vettel, a four times world champion with Red Bull who leads Hamilton by six points after five races, was second and a mere 0.196 slower than the Briton with a time of 1:13.621.Both men were inside Australian Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo’s 2016 pole position time of 1:13.622 with Hamilton’s the fastest yet around the metal-fenced harbourside street circuit.Hamilton did 40 laps, Vettel 34.The Ferrari driver is hoping to end his team’s long drought in the most glamorous — and slowest – race on the calendar with a first Ferrari win in the Mediterranean principality since Michael Schumacher in 2001.Under cloudy skies, after Wednesday’s bright sunshine, Britain’s Jenson Button returned to the cockpit as a McLaren stand-in for Fernando Alonso, who is competing at the Indianapolis 500.The 2009 champion was 14th fastest, 1.529 off the pace, and completed 35 trouble-free laps in a solid performance for a driver who has not been in a Formula One car since last November.Red Bull’s Max Verstappen was third quickest, a positive development for the former champions, ahead of Hamilton’s Finnish team mate Valtteri Bottas and Ricciardo in fifth.Renault’s Nico Hulkenberg and Sauber’s Marcus Ericsson both failed to set a time, with the latter suffering a gearbox problem.advertisementPractice in Monaco is always on a Thursday due to Friday, the usual day for first running on track at other races, being a rest day.
