A special art class for local primary and secondary schools specifies that the exhibits must be pollinator related and a local artist will judge the exhibits.Local honey will be on sale from the teaching apiary in Mungret and funds raised will be used to develop beekeeping the county and city.The Limerick Beekeepers have gone from strength to strength in recent years and the organisation now has more than 100 members.The LBA meets monthly at the Mungret GAA clubhouse, where they get advice from certified lecturers, access to a free library and plenty of chat about all things beekeeping over a cup of tea.Chairman Gus Mc Coy says they are probably the envy of many other beekeeping associations because of the wide range of services and supports they can access.“We are grateful to Limerick City and County Council for leasing lands to us at Mungret for our apiary, which we use for training beginners, and also to Mungret GAA for the use of their hall.”Established in 1956, membership was quite small in the early years and by 2012 the club had just 18 members.According to Gus, it was only when they established a training programme for beginners at the start of the recession that there was a significant increase in membership numbers, as people focused on more homely crafts.“Membership has grown steadily in recent years due to the commitment of our committee to providing the resources and means for people to learn the ancient craft of beekeeping,” he explainedAdmission to the Mungret Show is €2 with under-16s free with proceeds going to Milford Hospice.center_img WhatsApp Email Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live TAGSKeeping Limerick PostedLBAlimerickLimerick Beekeepers associationLimerick Post NewsCommunityLimerickSweet support will bee on hand for MilfordBy Bernie English – November 12, 2019 376 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League openerlast_img read more

Open consultation: Appropriate clinical negligence cover

first_img leave arrangements as they are change legislation to require healthcare professionals who are not covered by any state-backed scheme to hold cover that is regulated Currently, all healthcare professionals who wish to practise in the UK are legally required to hold appropriate clinical negligence cover for the costs of claims and damages awarded to patients arising out of negligence.There are concerns that the current arrangements held by healthcare professionals who are not covered by state-backed schemes could prevent patients getting appropriate compensation and put healthcare professionals at risk of being personally liable for the costs of claims.This is because these arrangements are mostly discretionary, where the providers are not contractually obliged to meet the costs of any claim and are not subject to prudential or financial conduct regulation.The groups that are likely to be most affected by any changes to the current indemnity arrangements are: This consultation is about indemnity cover for healthcare professionals who purchase their own indemnity cover because they are not covered by existing or proposed state-backed schemes.It seeks views on 2 options:center_img regulated professionals in the NHS who hold indemnity cover which is not currently regulated, such as primary care dentistry private practice of medical doctors and other regulated healthcare professionals healthcare professionals in Northern Ireland and Scotland who are not covered by any state-backed indemnity scheme, such as GPslast_img read more

Premier Foods sells 17.27% stake

first_imgNissin, a Japanese instant noodle firm, has committed to buy a 17.27% stake in Premier Foods.The move comes as the two companies finalise a relationship agreement which will give Premier the ability to distribute Nissin products in the UK, while making its own products more widely available in key overseas markets.Premier Foods said there would also be opportunities for the sharing of intellectual property and manufacturing capabilities.David Beever, chairman of Premier Foods, said: “We welcome Nissin as a new long-term shareholder in our business. By gaining a strategic investor who understands and supports our growth ambitions, we have an exceptional opportunity to deliver shareholder value. Based on the conditional cooperation agreement we announced yesterday, we very much look forward to working with Nissin to develop ways our two businesses can co-operate to drive growth.”The move comes in the wake of Premier Foods announcing it had rejected two bids from US spice brand McCormick, the latter offer on the 14 March, valuing the company at 60p a share.hostile takeoverDr Hossam Zeitoun, assistant professor of strategy and international business at Warwick Business School, said the move would help Premier Foods fend off a hostile takeover from McCormick and give the company time to turn around its troubled finances.He said: “Premier Foods’ deal with Nissin will help it pursue its turnaround strategy and avoid a hostile takeover by McCormick. This co-operation will be another obstacle for McCormick and would make it even more difficult for the US company to complete a takeover.“Companies under the threat of a hostile takeover often look for a ‘white knight’, ie. a friendlier acquirer, but in the case of Nissin it doesn’t want to be an acquirer – at least not yet. It is content with a stake in the company. This means Premier Foods can continue its turnaround strategy by decreasing its debt and working to boost its market share.“Japanese companies are renowned for pursuing long-term objectives. In Japan, hostile takeovers are extremely rare, and Premier Foods is calling Nissin a long-term shareholder, which can give it time to follow its strategy through rather than looking for a short-term hike in its stock price. If all goes well, Nissin may want to acquire Premier Foods in the future, but not at the moment – it only wants a non-executive director on the board.”last_img read more

Onsite: PSCU’s Music City 2016 Member Forum in Nashville

first_img 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Randall Smith Randall Smith is the co-founder of CUInsight.com, the host of The CUInsight Experience podcast, and a bit of a wanderlust.As one of the co-founders of CUInsight.com he … Web: www.CUInsight.com Details The 2016 PSCU Member Forum is being held this week in Nashville, TN at the Country Music Hall of Fame Theater. Chuck Fagan, PSCU Pres/CEO, welcomed the crowd of more than 750 credit union executives to the event. Chuck spoke about blending the best of PSCU’s past to create the PSCU of the future. The focus of the event was people, purpose and passion and the blending of community and technology to partner with member credit unions moving forward.The day started out with three general sessions that were all keynotes in their own right.Marcus Buckingham, founder of The Marcus Buckingham Company, was first up with Find Your Edge: Win At Work. Marcus focused on how tricky it can be to harness excellence in organizations. Stating that as leaders we spend more time focusing on employee’s shortcomings then building on their strengths. We need to flip the script on this and spend more time building on people’s strengths and looking for marginal improvements in their weaknesses. Marcus gave tips and techniques to become better coaches and get the most out of an employee’s strength. He showed how to move past a one-size-fits-all approach to management.Next up was the co-founder of Square, Jim McKelvey. He is a man of diverse interests. An inventor, entrepreneur, glass blower, author and licensed pilot. Jim spoke of noticing a need in the market that led to founding Square and the future of payments. Profound change is coming to the payments industry. Jim predicts this change will happen in 2017 with the introduction of indoor location technologies to the market. Jim feels purchase data is the largest treasure trove of information being unused. Everyone wants a piece of this data but no one owns it. A land grab is going on from an avalanche of super valuable data that is on it’s way.Jenn Lim is the CEO and Chief Happiness Officer of Delivering Happiness, a company she founded with Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos. Jenn is also a consultant at Zappos where she works on their culture and co-created the Zappos book, Delivering Happiness. The focus of her presentation was that happier employees create happier members which make our credit unions sustainable businesses. Jenn asked the questions “What are you goals in life? Why?” Usually all answers come back to being happy.Thursday’s line up includes NAFCU’s Dan Berger, speaker Jay Baer, and NFL Super Bowl winning coach and ESPN commentator Jon Gruden.You can follow along with live updates on Twitter at the hashtage #mforum16.last_img read more

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC) – Barbadian umpire Gregory Brathwaite has been named among the match officials for today’s final of the Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia. The 50-year-old will act as television umpire for the match between defending champions Australia and unbeaten India, which will be played at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground tonight (03:00hrs Sunday Eastern Caribbean time).One of the most experienced match officials in the West Indies, Brathwaite is officiating in his sixth global event, after having been involved at the regional level for over a decade.“On behalf of Cricket West Indies (CWI) we want to congratulate Gregory on his appointment as television umpire for the final of ICC Women’s T20 World Cup,” said Roland Holder, CWI senior operations manager.“He is a dedicated and committed umpire who has made progress on the international stage. We are confident that he will equip himself very well.“This tournament is a major event on the global cricket stage. To have one of our umpires participate in the final along with the fact that we just had Jacqueline Williams as the first female umpire in a men’s T20I are signs of the improving standards.”Brathwaite made his international breakthrough in 2011 in an One-Day International between Canada and Afghanistan and has so far stood in 44 ODI and 28 T20 Internationals.In today’s final, Hasan Raza of Pakistan and Kim Cotton of New Zealand will serve as the standing umpires while the fourth official will be Langton Rusere of Zimbabwe.last_img read more

One-legged wrestler wins NCAA championship

first_img“This year I think that was the biggest difference in my wrestling, was my mental game. Going into every match I was real relaxed, real calm. But before that, before this match, it was nothing but butterflies. I felt like I was going throw up, I was so scared I almost started crying.“But it’s just the atmosphere. It’s the true athletes that are able to just overcome that.”In the team competition, Penn State, led by 184-pound champion Quentin Wright, won its first NCAA wrestling title in 58 years by outpointing Cornell. The Nittany Lions finished with 107½ points to Cornell’s 93½.“In my mind, I’ve wanted to be a part of a national championship program since I started at Iowa State as a freshman in 1998,” Penn State coach Cael Sanderson said. “Having not been able to do that for so many years until here we are no and it’s finally happened.”Wright began the tournament as the ninth seed and won his first national title with a 5-2 decision over Lehigh’s Rob Hamlin.“It’s a great feeling,” Wright said. “It ­hasn’t hit me yet. I just got out of the match. But it’s going to get better for a long time.”The three-day event drew a record attendance of 104,260.

(AP Photo/Matt Slocum) PHILADELPHIA (AP)—Anthony Robles finished his NCAA wrestling career in history-making fashion. Robles, who was born without a right leg, took a 7-1 decision from Iowa sophomore Matt McDonough to win the 125-pound title at the NCAA wrestling championships March 19. The Arizona State senior got the only takedown in the first period of the match and worked a pair of tilts to secure five back points.“I had a lot of butterflies going out there,” said Robles, who admitted he’s most likely done as a competitive wrestler but wants to remain involved in one facet or another.last_img read more

Ian Kruljac, trainer of Finest City, has engaged Tyler Baze for the Santa Margarita, while Baffert, trainer of the Argentine-bred mare Vale Dori, has called on Rafael Bejarano.Santa Anita oddsmaker Jon White may have to beckon all his skills deciding on which mare to make favorite, but for sure, either Finest City or Vale Dori will be the betting choice.With 16 wins from just 47 mounts, the selective Smith is winning at a remarkable 34 percent at the Winter Meet, but those mounts have earned $1,438,547. That’s why Smith has the deserving reputation as a “money rider.”Also probable for the Santa Margarita are Autumn Flower, no rider; Lady Tapit, Mario Gutierrez; Wild At Heart, Flavien Prat, and possibly Show Stealer, Stewart Elliott.
