DONEGAL HILL FARMERS UNDER THREAT FROM INFLEXIBLE DEPARTMENT, SAYS MEP HARKIN

first_imgMarian Harkin, MEPThe Department of Agriculture is unnecessarily imposing conditions on the participation of Donegal hill and commonage farmers in the new EU supported GLAS Scheme, MEP Marian Harkin has warned.She spoke out following a meeting she organised with senior European Commission officials and which was attended by farmers from Galway, Mayo, Sligo and Donegal.“What emerged clearly from this meeting was that Ireland’s Department of Agriculture is attempting to impose regulations in an inflexible way which is not required by the European Commission”, she said. The result of this was that commonage farmers were the only producers in Ireland being denied the right to apply as individuals to participate in the new agricultural environment GLAS Scheme, Marian Harkin said.“These farmers are perfectly willing to ensure that the commonages are maintained in line with the required Good Agricultural and Environmental Condition (GAEC) required by the EU”, she said.“However unnecessary inflexibility by the Department of Agriculture would defeat the objectives of EU policy and in the process undermine the prospects that hill farming could sustain into the future, she maintained.“It is time for the Minister for Agriculture to intervene on this issue and permit the farmers who know the hills, and how they need to be farmed, to engage in the GLAS Scheme and in the process deliver economically to their local areas and the EU’s environmental objectives”, Independent MEP Marian Harkin concluded. Donegal hill farmers have had several meetings about the issue – and claim the Department reneged on a deal. DONEGAL HILL FARMERS UNDER THREAT FROM INFLEXIBLE DEPARTMENT, SAYS MEP HARKIN was last modified: November 14th, 2014 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:Department of AgricultureGLAShill farmersmarian harkin meplast_img read more

Gardai warn public over burglar gangs as clocks prepare to go back this week

first_imgGardaí in Donegal have warned the public to be extra vigilant as the clocks prepare to go back on Sunday – a period they say is the most lucrative time of the year for burglar gangs. They said gangs like to take advantage of the extra hour of darkness in which to operate.A spokesperson for Gardaí in the county said: “The clocks go back next weekend and the evenings will be long and dark. There are simple steps we can take to ensure that our homes are not easy prey for a burglar. “Lock all doors and ensure that windows are shut when your home is empty. Consider locking doors when you are at home also as a habit.“Get good lighting for outside your home (The dusk to dawn light is a great security feature as it automatically illuminates as soon as darkness falls and turns off again when it is bright).“Consider getting a monitored alarm for your home. Ensure that you supply your eircode when having it installed as in the event of emergency services having to attend at your home, this will ensure a swift arrival.“Don’t keep large amounts of cash at home. If you have valuable jewellery then please invest in a safe and have it screwed to the floor or wall in a hidden location. Keep all valuables in it especially when leaving your home.“Check in on elderly neighbours over the coming months and advise them in relation to home security.

Spider Silk Admired, Not Duplicated

first_imgSpiders still maintain the edge in a technology humans want: a material that absorbs huge amounts of energy without breaking.  The dragline silk spun by spiders is extremely robust – ounce for ounce stronger than steel, yet more flexible than Kevlar.  If a web the size of a football field could be erected in the air with strands one centimeter thick arranged in concentric circles 4 cm apart, it could stop a jumbo jet in flight.  (We won’t try to envision a passenger’s view of the spider sneaking up on the captured plane.  Whoops, too late.)    Fascinating facts about spider silk made the cover story of Science News (171:15, p. 231, 04/14/2007).  Aimee Cunningham told about teams like that of Nikola Kojic (MIT) that are trying to replicate this ideal material but have not yet succeeded in matching its strength.  Human versions require high temperatures, high pressures and toxic substances to make.  Your humble garden spider has no such limitations:In contrast, natural spider silk is produced at room temperature with water as a solvent, says Chris Holland, a zoologist at the University of Oxford in England.  “It’s made in the spider, and with the spider eating flies.  That produces a fiber that we can’t even come close to.”The formula for synthetic dragline silk is a prize humans eagerly seek.  Such a tough and flexible material would find many applications, from bulletproof vests to suspension cables for bridges.  Maybe even Spiderman toys will come from it.  “The spider hasn’t given us all the secrets,” said one researcher.    Somehow, the spider extrudes a silk dope through ducts in its abdomen, and this goop solidifies into a strand that is stretchy and very tough.  “A silk thread contains hundreds of thousands of protein chains, each of which folds on its own and also arranges itself among other chains in the fiber.”  One researcher found that repeating units are able to snap together like Lego blocks.    Even more amazing, spiders spin seven kinds of silk from the same machinery.  Dragline silk, forming the spokes of the web, absorbs the brunt of the energy.  Capture-spiral silk is stretchy and sticky.  Other forms are used to wrap the prey, coat the egg sacs and perform other functions.  One team found that the prey-wrapping silk is up to three times tougher than dragline silk.  This adds drama to that scene of Shelob’s lair in The Return of the King.    At this point, the R&D of spider technology is still in the R stage.  Spiderman wannabees will probably not find webshooters under the tree this year.  But even though the researchers interviewed for the article stand in awe of spider silk, they did not shy away from speculating about how evolution gave the spider a technology our brightest minds cannot emulate.  “Spiders and silkworms evolved the capacity to spin silk independently of each other,” said one:The dopes contain different proteins, and the resulting fibers have distinct properties.  Yet “what we see is that the flow properties are very similar,” [Chris] Holland [Oxford] says.  Despite their differences, the spider and silkworm “use similar tricks,” he continues.  “This gives fantastic insight into how silk production has evolved and how the production of an energy-efficient, high-performance fiber is made by nature.”Not only that, it happened a long, long, time ago: “Spiders have been spinning these silks for almost 400 million years.”  No questions asked.The evolution-talk ruined an otherwise great article.  Notice that the Darwin storytelling was absolutely useless.  Evolution was assumed without evidence and contributed nothing to helping the scientists on their quest to reverse-engineer the technology.    Most people detest spiders and find them creepy or scary.  Let’s teach our kids to admire them and respect them, along with ants, honeybees and the many other critters around us.  Some of our fellow denizens we need to admire at a distance, and yes, it’s OK to keep them out of the house.  Spiders don’t mean to invade your space; they just wander and get disoriented sometimes and need a little help.  Maybe instead of stepping on every spider you see, you should teach kids to scoop them up and let them play in their own space outside.  Your reporter once watched a four-inch-wide hairy mygalomorph come strutting into the bedroom just before lights out.  Mutually startled, the human jumped up and the spider ran under the bed.  The spider needed a little help for about half an hour getting rediscovered and assisted into a more suitable habitat.  All lived happily ever after.    Help children observe the wonderful ways spiders weave their webs.  Have you ever witnessed the whole web construction process?  The material is amazing enough, but watching how the spider creates the pattern is a lot of fun.  When they wrap their prey, it shouldn’t seem that different from what we do with our food.  Think how repulsed a hen in a Far Side Horror Movie would be watching humans cut up a rotisserie chicken, shrink-wrap the pieces and put them in the refrigerator.  It’s all in the point of view.  What do you want, a yard full of flies?  Spiders do us a service.  By capturing, stunning and wrapping their food, spiders keep their meat fresh and help maintain the balance in nature.  Their ability to turn fly guts into techno-silk should not be minimized.  Don’t feel slighted.  You can take barbecue chicken and transform it into cerebral cortex. (Visited 32 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
