Defiant thousands against Trump

first_imgHours before the final vote tally on Nov. 8, tens of thousands began to march here against Trump. They have continued day and night through midtown Manhattan, rejecting the white supremacy, misogyny, Islamophobia and immigrant bashing he represents.Trump’s election has inspired many people to protest for the first time in their lives. Many marchers are looking for political answers beyond the two-party system, and members of the People’s Power Assembly NYC, Workers World Party and allied groups have been in the streets to provide those answers.Members of those organizations have also acted decisively to remove pro-Trump agitators from the crowd and challenge police attempts to control the protests.On Nov. 8, New York responded to the election of Donald Trump with 30,000 to 50,000 people in the streets. The large crowd assembled downtown at Union Square and marched north two miles on Fifth Avenue to Trump Tower, chanting all the way. Participants were mostly people new to the struggle. They were overwhelmingly young, with many of high school age.The mood of the crowd became increasingly militant and chants more angry as the huge throng approached Trump Tower, barricaded with garbage trucks. A line of cops and metal barricades confronted the demonstrators. But police had to construct a second row of barricades as the crowd shoved to get through the first fence. A few dozen demonstrators were arrested over the course of the night.The enormous anti-Trump marches show no signs of slowing, threatening the holiday shopping season along Fifth Avenue, playground of the ultra-rich.People’s Power Assemblies (PPA), NYC members contributed to this article.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Brian ArthurTHE UL Hospitals Group has appointed international rugby referee Joy Neville and Munster Rugby’s Ronan O’Mahony as ambassadors for the Children’s Ark at University Hospital Limerick.For children living with or recovering from illness, a visit from their sporting heroes is always a sure way of taking their minds off hospital and treatment plans.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up And young patients in UHL are delighted they will now be seeing more of Joy and Ronan in their roles as ambassadors.“As rugby players, we know that we have an important role to play in our communities,” said Ronan, who has recently announced that he will be retiring from the game through injury.“The ability to bring a smile to a young person’s face is a powerful thing, especially when they are unwell. I am delighted to be taking on an ambassadorial role with The Children’s Ark, which has been facilitated by Rugby Players Ireland. By strengthening this link, I hope to bring some light into their lives at a time when they need it most.”According to Joy Neville: “I know the hospital well from my own family and friends coming here over the years. One of my good friends, Fiona Steed, works in the hospital and may I suspect have had something to do with putting my name in the mix as an ambassador”.“I am really honoured to have been asked. The Children’s Ark is a wonderful department with great staff who do invaluable and life-changing work for children and families across Limerick and the MidWest. Kids will always have bumps and accidents and, unfortunately, some children will become seriously ill so it is reassuring that we have in the region a department where we can help them to recover. I am delighted to be able to support this great work in my own small way,” she added.The Children’s Ark is the only inpatient facility for sick children in the MidWest. It is a purpose-built paediatric unit for children with 49 beds in the Sunshine and Rainbow wards, a high-dependency unit, a cystic fibrosis unit and the Caterpillar Day Ward.There is a school for children staying in hospital so that those that are well enough can keep up with their school work. And the play room operates Monday to Friday to normalise children’s experience of hospital and proves a fun side to life within a hospital environment.During 2018 there were 3,787 inpatients cared for on the two main wards in addition to 64 children in the paediatric high dependency unit. There were 16,699 paediatric presentations to the Emergency Department in 2018 and 28,645 outpatient attendances.Dr Siobhan Gallagher, Consultant PaediatricianDr Siobhan Gallagher said it was a great privilege to welcome Joy and Ronan as Children’s Ark Ambassadors.“We are very grateful that they are so generous with their time. They will give huge inspiration and encouragement to the children, teenagers and their families who attend the Children’s Ark, as well as to the staff who work here”Assistant Director of Nursing Jeane Moloney said that hospital can be a difficult place for children and their families so they do everything they can to normalise the experience.“Recent visits by members of the Munster and Ireland rugby teams and from the Limerick hurlers and camogie players have made for many precious memories for our patients. We are delighted to now have Ronan and Joy come on board as ambassadors and we look forward to marking many more celebrations and milestones with them,” she said.

Umpiring howlers dominate Day 1 of Ashes Test

first_img… 7 wrong decisions, 5 overturned by DRS in first inningsEVER since the World Cup, the debate regarding the umpiring decisions has been raging on. The standard of umpiring in the international cricket has become a hot topic among the fans and the World Cup final continued to add to that debate.One of the most experienced umpires in the world, Kumar Dharmasena recently admitted that his decision to award England six runs in the World Cup final against New Zealand was an error. It was a crucial decision, as England went on to win the tournament on the basis of more boundaries when the match ended in a tie.The umpiring howlers haven’t stopped over there as it has continued in the longest format of the game. The first Test in the Ashes series between England and Australia is currently going on at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham.However, the first innings itself was full of wrong umpiring decisions as England and Australia relied heavily on the Decision Review System (DRS).There were a total of 7 wrong umpiring decisions with 5 being overturned by DRS. However, there were some unlucky ones as David Warner and James Pattinson were given out and they opted not to take the DRS despite being not out.Warner could have been dismissed in the second over itself when the umpire failed to spot a bottom edge on the bowling of Stuart Broad.But Australia were lucky as England opted not to take the DRS. Warner departed soon as this time Australia failed to take advantage of the DRS. The ball was missing the stumps but the umpire deemed it to be a clear dismissal.Then likes of Usman Khwaja, Steve Smith, Matthew Wade, Pattinson and Peter Siddle were affected as the umpiring decisions continued to be wrong. Khawaja was given not out by the umpires but England took the review and it showed that the batsman had edged the delivery.Matthew Wade, making his comeback into the side, was on the wrong end of the DRS. Despite being struck plumb in front of the stumps, the umpire did not deem it to be out. But England took the review and Wade was soon walking back to the pavilion.It was Smith’s turn to be affected by the poor umpiring decisions. Umpire signalled out on Broad’s delivery but Smith was quick to take the review and HawkEye showed that it was missing the stumps.The umpiring howlers continued as Peter Siddle was also given out but he quickly took the review and it showed that there was a big inside edge onto the pads.The on-field umpires for the first Ashes Test are Joel Wilson and Aleem Dar. Australia legend Shane Warne and former England skipper Nasser Hussain were also critical of the on-field umpires as they tweeted their frustrations. (hindustantimes)last_img read more

Rural areas being ‘left behind’ as government fails to bridge gap, councillor warns

first_imgA Glenties councillor has expressed concern over the disrepair and lack of funding being provided to rural areas in west Donegal. Cllr Micheal Cholm MacGiolla Easbuig raised concern over the summer after an elderly wheelchair user and his extended family had been left trapped in their homes after heavy rain washed away a bridge leading to their property. Meanwhile, a resident in the area also told Donegal Daily how ‘something drastic’ was going to happen on the Glen Road in Angaire if it wasn’t repaired by Donegal County Council. The concern comes as Fianna Fail and Fine Gael have become embroiled in an argument in recent days in relation to government funding for rural communities.Now further concern has been expressed, with Cllr Cholm MacGiolla Easbuig highlighting a deteriorated footpath in Anagaire, suggesting to Donegal Daily that it was a testament to how the people in rural west Donegal had been ‘forgotten’.He said: “If you look at the footpath, it is completely crumbling away. How is that acceptable?“And for me as a councillor, one of the major frustrations is that stuff like this is cropping up every day and it shouldn’t be. “This should be fixed by the council and a big issue shouldn’t be made about it, but it isn’t being done and that is a problem.“I shouldn’t have to fight for these issues or highlight them one after the other.“The government are failing to adequately fund the council and that means we are scraping the bottom of the barrel.“And when small projects, like the footpath in Anagaire, occur it means you have to go in search of money.“We have a situation now were our footpaths are overgrowing with weeds and they are not being maintained,” he added. “We need to have the council-funded adequately because rural parts of this county are being left behind and forgotten about.”Rural areas being ‘left behind’ as government fails to bridge gap, councillor warns was last modified: September 19th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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)last_img read more

Limiting liability on the farm: An overview of Ohio’s LLC laws

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a relatively new type of business entity. The first LLC statute passed in Wyoming in 1977. Since then, all 50 states passed legislation permitting LLCs as an operating entity. Many Ohio farmers use the LLC as their preferred operating entity.In Ohio, an LLC is a legal entity created by Ohio statute. An LLC is considered to be separate and distinct from its owners. An LLC may have a single owner in Ohio, or it may have numerous owners. LLCs combine the best attributes of a corporation and a partnership. Individuals, corporations, other LLCs, trusts, and estates may be members in a single LLC. There is no limit on maximum members. The importance of an operating agreementWhen an agricultural operation chooses to operate as an LLC, that operation must consider drafting an operating agreement. An operating agreement specifies the financial responsibilities of the parties, how profits and losses are shared among members within the LLC, limitations on transfers of membership, and other basic principles of operation.If an LLC does not choose to draft an operating agreement, Ohio’s default rules apply. Ohio law prescribes default rules of operation for LLCs in R.C. Chapter 1705. However, LLC members often wish to modify state rules to tailor an LLC to their business. Ideally, agricultural operators should draft an operating agreement with the assistance of an attorney. Single member LLCsEvery state in the Midwest permits single-member Limited Liability Companies (SMLLCs). A single member LLC is an LLC which has one member or manager; that means that there are no other owners or managers of that LLC. In 2016, Ohio enacted R.C. 1705.031 which states that Ohio LLC laws apply to all LLCs, including those with only one member. Therefore, small agribusinesses that have only one member are not prevented from forming an LLC. Will a personal guaranty on a loan affect limited liability protection?Ohio farmers operating as an LLC enjoy the benefits of limited liability protection. Usually, that means that the debts and obligations of a farm LLC operation are solely those of the LLC. That means that a farmer is not personally liable for any debts or obligations incurred by the LLC.However, lenders, implement dealers, financial institutions, and others are finding ways around an LLC’s personal liability protection. Those parties are increasingly requiring that the members and managers of LLCs provide personal guarantees. That is, a member or manager of an LLC agrees to be personally liable for a debt or obligation, if an LLC is not able to pay. LLCs are not invincibleLimited Liability Companies are extremely popular among farmers in Ohio. However, LLCs merely limit liability. LLCs don’t create a perfect liability shield, they are subject to a concept known as “veil piercing” where the owners of a company are held personally liable for the actions of the company.Generally, a person cannot use a corporation to commit fraud on others or to use a corporation as an alter ego for a member’s own personal gain. Plainly speaking, Ohio courts may hold an owner of an LLC liable in certain cases of fraud committed by the LLC or where an LLC is undercapitalized and is not treated as a separate entity from a member (i.e. the LLC is used as an “alter ego”). While this is not a common scenario among farm business LLCs, LLC members should be aware that a business’s status as an LLC will not shield it from liability in all instances. Carrying liability insuranceMany LLC owners consider the protections under Ohio’s LLC laws to be sufficient. Some LLC members are satisfied that their personal assets are sufficiently protected and separated from LLC assets and LLC liabilities. However, every business should have liability insurance. Liability insurance is a relatively inexpensive means of managing liability exposure for injuries and physical damage to a third party. While insurance doesn’t lower liability, it gives the business a way to pay for damages in the event of an incident.The question of “how much liability insurance should a farm operation have?” is a difficult one. The amount of insurance that a farm should have must be determined on a case-by-case basis. Factors such as farm size, type of operation, location, and other factors impact the insurance needs of a farm operation.last_img read more

RCMP Inuvik call in outside police force to investigate after woman dies

first_imgIman Kassam APTN National NewsINUVIK — RCMP in Inuvik have called in an Alberta police force to investigate after a woman died while being released from custody Sunday.The woman, whose name has not yet been released, was arrested the night before for public intoxication.According to a release issued Wednesday by the RCMP,  police received a complaint January 9 about a woman believed to be intoxicated walking along Bonnetplume Road in Inuvik.Police said she was “arrested without incident.”According to police, she was brought to the hospital for a medical assessment where “she was considered fit for incarceration by the medical staff.”The woman was then locked in a cell until she was considered sober enough to be released.The following morning, “the female prisoner was in the process of being released from custody when she unexpectedly went into medical distress,” said the release.“RCMP administered first aid on scene and subsequently the female was escorted to the Inuvik Hospital where she was treated by medical staff. She unfortunately passed away.”According to the release, the woman “was co-operative with police throughout her arrest and time in custody.”What is not clear is what happened during her incarceration or how she died.The case has now been turned over to the Medicine Hat Police Services who are conducting an external review of the circumstances related to her death.Staff Sgt. Trevor Humphries told APTN National News that two investigators were dispatched to Inuvik Monday.“The members that were sent were our active members of major crimes,” said Humphries. “So we’re talking about members that are very senior, they’ve very experienced, skilled members that are sent to assist the RCMP and conduct this external review.”Sgt. Ernie Fischhofer and Cst. Jason Ross from Medicine Hat Police Services will be in Inuvik investigating the woman’s death until Thursday, at which point they will return home to start working on a report.Police said it will take several months for the report to be completed.Humphries said a key component of the review will come from the medical examiner’s report.“Autopsies are done quickly, but the final report often times takes several months because toxicology has to be done, and that does not get done overnight, it takes time,” he [email protected]last_img read more
