first_img Previous articleArmed raid at Raheen foodstoreNext article‘George Kimball touched the hearts of his Southill family’ – Fr Joe Young admin Print THE vacant Limerick County Golf Club at Ballyneety was hit by vandals this Monday night, resulting in extensive flood damage to the premises. Detectives at Roxboro Garda Station have launched an investigation after raiders ripped copper piping from the walls and ceilings of the now liquidated golf club. Shortly after 10.30pm on Monday, security staff disturbed the raiders who had gained entry and were attempting to take the copper piping and other materials.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The unoccupied building is just one of a number of closed premises throughout Limerick that have been targeted as raiders attempt to gather and sell on the materials scavenged from derelict or unoccupied sites.With NAMA having moved into a number of sites around the country, Limerick is no different to this latest upsurge in thefts and burglaries that are evident elsewhere.Limerick District Court has seen a number of such prosecutable cases where raiders have taken scaffolding from unfinished private housing estates, and gates from houses due for demolition under the regeneration scheme, with a view to selling it on.Gardai are advising that all such property should be secured and regularly checked.

Singh helps Guyana take control

first_img(CMC) – Discarded Test left-hander Vishaul Singh was eyeing his ninth first-class hundred as five-time reigning champions Guyana Jaguars took command of their sixth round contest against Jamaica Scorpions.The 31-year-old Vishaul closed yesterday’s day two unbeaten on 93 to steer the visitors to 287 for six in reply to Scorpions’ first innings of 216 at the Trelawny Multi-Purpose Stadium.Opener Chandrapaul Hemraj missed out on three digits when he fell for 83 while captain Leon Johnson got a start with 35 but failed to build.Left-arm spinner Dennis Bulli was the hosts’ best bowler with three for 84, accounting for the two wickets to fall in the final session.Resuming the day without a run on the board from two overs the previous evening, Jaguars lost the obdurate Tagenarine Chanderpaul cheaply for eight, with the score on 21, the left-hander squared up by seamer Alwyn Williams and he was bowled off-stump in the morning’s sixth over.However, Hemraj then anchored two successive half-century stands to pull the innings around and put Jaguars on top.First, he put on 60 for the second wicket with Johnson, who faced 73 balls and counted four fours, as Jaguars reached 75 without further loss at lunch.When Johnson added just one run before going stumped, off Bulli, in the third over after the interval, Hemraj and Vishaul combined to put on a further 98 for the third wicket.Hemraj, also a left-hander, faced 173 balls in 3-¾ hours and struck three fours and sixes while Vishaul, who played three Tests against Pakistan three years ago, punched seven fours off 171 deliveries in a shade over 3-½ hours.Jaguars suffered a double blow with the score on 179, however, when Hemraj and Chris Barnwell (0) perished in the third over before tea.Hemraj edged a booming drive at left-arm spinner Patrick Harty (2-67) and was taken by Jermaine Blackwood above head height at first slip and two balls later, Barnwell scooped an ordinary delivery to captain John Campbell at cover.On 183 for four at tea with Vishaul unbeaten on exactly 50, Jaguars flourished in the final session, as Vishaul posted 34 for the fifth wicket with Raymon Reifer (16), 32 for the sixth with Anthony Bramble (25) before adding 42 in an unbroken seventh-wicket stand with Kevin Sinclair (20 not out).last_img read more

Apply for the $75 000 Anzisha PrizeMelissa Jane Cook“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes,” said the late Steve Jobs. “The ones who see things differently – they’re not fond of rules … You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things.”For the first time in South Africa, the entrepreneurial skills of the country’s young people will be celebrated by new awards exclusively for businesspeople under the age of 35. The Maverick Awards, a project of youth development consultancy Under 35 Mavericks in partnership with Brand South Africa, Wits Business School, the Centre for Entrepreneurship and Intel, seek to recognise and reward the hard-nosed genius of established young South African entrepreneurs with prizes of up to R1-million.The Maverick Awards are open to 10 categories of young entrepreneurs aged 18 to 35. They must operate their enterprises within the borders of South Africa, and must have been in business for at least three years, with a minimum annual turnover of R1-million. Nominations are open from Monday 10 March to Friday 28th March. (See more of the entry criteria.) http://www.under35mavericks.com/page/entry-criteria-and-tcs/Driving job creation“The Maverick Awards seek to carve out a space for young entrepreneurs to be the ‘wind’ that drives the sails of our job creation and economic growth endeavours,” said Bokang Seritsane, founder of Under 35 Mavericks. “In a country where a significant proportion of the young population is without employment or sustainable economic opportunity, it is imperative to acknowledge youth success and unleash new role models who can inspire numerous other young South Africans to be the creators of their own destinies.”The awards will be launched in June, South Africa’s annual Youth Month. They aim to boost the development of a new generation of young, innovative South African entrepreneurs. The hope is that these tycoons-in-the-making will go on to contribute significantly to the economy, so helping improve the lives of South Africa’s people.“Innovation has become the blueprint to sustainable entrepreneurial success, handsomely rewarding those that embrace it by affording them creative disruption ability, market access, competitiveness, growth and ultimately grand success,” said Seritsane.Under 35 Mavericks plan to roll out initiatives to help young entrepreneurs in the critical areas of market access, creativity and value innovation for sustainable competitive advantage, business growth strategy, marketing for growth in depressed economies, leadership for entrepreneurs, investor readiness as well as value asset creation.For more information on how to nominate yourself or a young entrepreneur you know, go to www.under35mavericks.com, follow @under35maverick on Twitter or visit Under 35 Mavericks on Facebook.last_img read more

Your Client Can Have Anything They Want

first_imgIf the most high-end product, service, or solution that you sell was available at the lowest price in the market, selling would be easy. So easy, in fact, that it wouldn’t be selling at all; it would be order-taking.The price of an offering is based on the value it creates. Products, services, or solutions that create value require a greater investment to make or deliver, and therefore, they require that your client make a greater investment in obtaining those outcomes.You will have prospects and clients that want a level of value with a required price beyond what they are willing or able to invest. You will have clients who ask you to provide them with the additional value that comes only with the greater investment at a much lower level of investment. Because they know the greater value is available, they want that additional value.Some will demand more than they are willing to pay for, insisting that you should include it, that it should be standard, that it is integral to the outcome they need. These folks will have product offerings with similar pricing levels based on the value they create, and a good many may cave in and provide additional value without capturing the value necessary to deliver that value. Others will happily take a loss, losing money on transactions, and attempting to make it up on volume.A useful operating philosophy is to decide that anyone can have anything they want, provided they are willing to pay for it.This means that you are not only going to have to justify the additional value by describing the greater outcomes, something your client is already well aware of when they ask you to deliver it for free, but also that you justify the investment you need to make in delivering that additional value.

Press bodies say need to reexamine OSA

first_imgNew Delhi: A group of press bodies on Thursday expressed concern over the government threatening The Hindu newspaper with action under the Official Secrets Act (OSA) for publishing articles on the Rafale deal based on documents stolen from the Defence Ministry, and said the legislation needs to “re-examined”.In a joint statement, Press Club of India, Indian Women’s Press Corps and Press Association said, “We feel it is time that the Official Secrets Act as well as law on defamation need to be re-examined given the potential of their misuse against the Fourth Estate.” Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity!The government on Wednesday told the SC documents related to Rafale aircraft deal have been stolen from the Defence Ministry and the petitioners seeking a review of its verdict dismissing all pleas against the purchase of the jets relied upon those documents. The Attorney General also submitted in the apex court that the documents on the deal relied on by the petitioners were marked secret and classified, and therefore, are in violation of the Official Secrets Act. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killedHe had also sought dismissal of the review petitions and perjury application as they relied on stolen documents and said that today’s The Hindu report on Rafale amounts to influencing hearing in apex court and is itself contempt of court. “We, the undersigned journalist organisations express deep concern over the statements made by the Attorney General of India insinuating that reports on the Rafale deal published in The Hindu newspaper were based on documents stolen from the Ministry of Defence,” the joint statement said. The Attorney General’s statements made in open court suggesting that the publication of such reports and the documents “imperiled national security and therefore should be deemed as criminal, has the potential of sending out a chilling effect to one and all in the media,” the statement claimed. The implications and ramifications of the statements made by the top most legal officer of the government are not only for the media but also for the sources of information that journalists rely on, the press bodies said. The Editors Guild of India also unequivocally condemned Attorney General’s remarks before the Supreme Court pertaining to the documents based on which the media had reported on the Rafale deal, saying any attempt to use the Official Secrets Act against the media is as “reprehensible” as asking journalists to disclose their sources. The Guild, in a statement, also urged the government to refrain from initiating any action that might undermine the media’s freedom and independence.last_img read more

Football 5 plays that mattered in Ohio States 387 win over Army

Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorEach game, the momentum can shift from one team to the other on one play. Every week, we will list five plays, elements of plays or series of plays that made the most significant impact in Ohio State’s games. Here’s the five plays that mattered most in No. 8 Ohio State’s 38-7 win versus Army.Barrett’s 107th career touchdownQuarterback J.T. Barrett etched his name further into history Saturday with his fourth-quarter touchdown pass to sophomore wide receiver Austin Mack.The 9-yard strike with 7:01 remaining in the game was touchdown No. 107 for Barrett, surpassing former Purdue quarterback and eventual NFL Hall of Famer Drew Brees on the Big Ten’s all-time touchdowns responsible for list.Barrett finished the game 25-for-33 for 270 yards and two touchdowns through the air, with 41 yards and a touchdown coming on the ground.Ohio State redshirt senior quarterback J.T.

Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorErick Smith’s touchdown-saving pass breakupAs expected, Army’s triple-option style offense didn’t put the ball in the air much Saturday. However, with 10:24 remaining in the second quarter, Army quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw fooled Ohio State’s defense and went long to running back Kell Walker who had no one in front of him.Senior safety Erick Smith ran from the left side of the field, dove and batted away a would-be touchdown. The play was reminiscent of the athleticism former safety Malik Hooker showed last season.Dobbins, two plays for 74 yardsOhio State freshman running back J.K. Dobbins had just two carries in the second quarter compared to five carries for 50 yards in the first. When his number was called in the third, he put the game out of reach.Ohio State freshman running back J.K. Dobbins (2) runs the ball in for a touchdown in the third quarter of the 2017 OSU- Army game in Ohio Stadium on Sep. 16. OSU won 38-7. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorWith 8:23 remaining in the third quarter on the Buckeyes’ first drive of the second half, Dobbins turned on the jets for a 52-yard touchdown after unleashing a devastating juke move to get into the open field. The score put Ohio State up 24-7 and was set up by a Dobbins 22-yard gain on the play prior.18-play, 99-yard, 9:37 Army touchdown driveOhio State gained 204 yards in the first quarter and led 14-0 after 15 minutes. It was clear that Army would have to limit the Buckeyes’ possessions if it wanted to keep the score close. In the second quarter, Ohio State had just one drive that ended with three points due to Army’s 18-play, 99-yard touchdown drive that spanned nearly 10 minutes.The triple-option offense allows a team to have long drives and wear out opposing defenses. Eighteen consecutive plays will tire any defense, and Army’s long, methodical drive was the reason why the game was only a 10-point difference at halftime.Third-down stop results in Army missed field goalArmy began the second half with the ball and drove all the way to Ohio State’s 23-yard line. A touchdown would have cut the game to just three points, but the Ohio State defense made a stand.On the 10th play of a six-minute drive, safeties Damon Webb and Jordan Fuller played in the box and attacked the backfield, dropping running back Darnell Woolfolk for a 3-yard loss on third-and-3. The next play, Army kicker Blake Wilson missed left on a 43-yard field goal try, which kept the score 17-7.Two plays later, Dobbins found paydirt for the decisive score. read more
