Call for Minister to visit Gaoth Dobhair’s flooded areas

first_imgDeputy Pat the Cope Gallagher has called upon the Minister of State for the Gaeltacht Sean Kyne to visit the flood-affected areas of Gweedore in the coming week. Substantial damage was caused by floods early on Saturday morning to roads, bridge and drainage throughout Gweedore.Pat the Cope added that a temporary footbridge is now in place to facilitate the Diver family in the short term, after the bridge serving their family home was washed away. More permanent repairs or replacement of the bridge is urgently required to facilitate vehicular traffic to the home of the Diver family.In 2009 when flash flooding caused major damage throughout Gweedore, the then Minister for the Gaeltacht Eamon O Cuiv TD visited the area immediately and provided the necessary funding for improvement works and repairs to the roads and infrastructure added Pat the Cope.“I am now calling on the current Gaeltacht Minister of State Sean Kyne TD to visit Gweedore next week with a view to sanctioning the necessary funding and to co-ordinate a comprehensive repair strategy with Donegal County Council”The Regional road which was closed earlier in the day at Meenalaugh has reopened but further more permanent repairs may need to be carried out in order to prevent future flooding. Cllr Noreen Mc Garvey said she has already been in contact with Donegal County Council and will be raising this matter at the next council meeting.She will also be requesting a full report to be carried out of all the damage caused by the flooding in Gweedore and right throughout west Donegal and a priority list of what repairs that will be required to be carried out. This report needs to be concluded before Minister Kyne visits the area added Cllr Mc Garvey.Pat the Cope paid special tribute to the Council Road Staff who responded to the calls early this morning and immediately set about carrying out the emergency repairs.“The entire response from the council must be commended as it comprehensively dealt with the matter and carried out trojan work throughout the day,” he said.Call for Minister to visit Gaoth Dobhair’s flooded areas was last modified: September 2nd, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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

Actor who damaged Garda cell cannot pay fine until new acting role

first_imgA court was told that well-known actor Gerard McSorley will not be able to pay a €150 court fine until he gets a new acting contract in January.The 69-year-old Fr Ted star, who has also appeared in a number of top movies, appeared at Letterkenny District Court today. An arrest warrant had been issued for McSorley after he failed to appear in court earlier this week.Garda Inspector Sean Grant told the court that McSorley had originally ben arrested at Letterkenny Bus Station on November 27th last after he was drunk and disorderly.He was taken to Letterkenny Garda station but continued to be abusive to Gardai and members of the public.While in the cell he continually spat at the cell door which needed to be cleaned by a cleaning company at a cost of €50.After he was released from custody, McSorley continued to be abusive and spat at a member of the public in the public area of the Garda station and was rearrested.McSorley, wearing a scarf and hat and using a walking stick, did not address the court.Instead, his solicitor, Mr Patsy Gallagher, explained how his client was a very well-known actor with a “distinguished career.”However, he said that he had a number of issues including alcohol, mental health as well as medical issues.He said he had spoken to his client of Trinity Court, Newtowncunningham, and that he estimated he had spent €80,000 on prescription tablets over the years to cope with his health issues.He added that on the evening in question he had been drinking and had been reminiscing about a number of lost colleagues.“My client is not working at present but is getting a contract in the New Year. He is technically unemployed at present.“He has made contact with his family and is hoping to spend Christmas with them,” said Mr Gallagher.He added that his client was a separated man with three grown-up children.Actor Gerard McSorley in court today. Pic by Northwest Newspix.The court heard that McSorley, of Trinity Court, Newtowncunningham, Co Donegal has a number of previous convictions for public order offences.Judge Paul Kelly fined McSorley €100 for breach of the peace and a further €50 for criminal damage to the Garda station cell.Judge Kelly asked if he had the money but Mr Gallagher said he did not but would have it when he got his next working contract.The Judge gave the accused 6 months to pay the fine and legal aid was granted in the case.Actor who damaged Garda cell cannot pay fine until new acting role was last modified: December 6th, 2019 by StephenShare 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:celldonegaldrunkFr TedGardaGerard McSorleyspatlast_img read more

Nebraska wind farms sue to enforce contract and keep utility from flying off into the sunset

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Evin Bachelor, Law Fellow, Ohio State University Extension Agricultural & Resource Law ProgramThree Nebraska windfarms in a power supply contract with the Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) have filed suit to prevent the utility from backing out of the contract.  The wind farms filed a complaint in federal court in Nebraska on Jan. 30, alleging that NPPD expressed its intention to terminate a power purchase agreement, and that doing so would be wrongful.The complaint explains NPPD’s position that the wind farms materially violated the contract by investing in other businesses and operations.  The plaintiffs disagree that there was a breach, but say that even if there was, NPPD cannot terminate the contract because it knew of the transactions.  The plaintiffs also note that NPPD has eminent domain power.They argue that by terminating the contract, NPPD knows that the wind farms will likely enter default with creditors.  This could allow NPPD to acquire the rights of the wind farms through a foreclosure sale or eminent domain.  To prevent NPPD from terminating the contract, the parties requested, and were granted, a temporary restraining order until March 1st that requires NPPD to honor the contract.  The case is cited as Laredo Ridge Wind, LLC v. Nebraska Pub. Power Dist., No. 8:19-cv-45 (D. Neb.).last_img read more

New interferometer could simplify materials research

first_img Explore further “We can get an interferometer that is more in line with classical visual optics,” Snigirev says. An interferometer works when beams of light are sent through slits or lenses, and patterns are detected against a background on the other side. The patterns reveal information about the object of study. “Our technique is sensitive enough for diagnostics and accurate measurements, and is more stable and easier to set up than using crystals.” Information on the work done by Snigirev and his colleagues is found in Physical Review Letters: “X-Ray Nanointerferometer Based on Si Refractive Bilenses.”Using electron beam lithography, the lenses used by Snigirev and his peers were created by a process of deep reactive-ion etching into silicon. “We prepared concave lenses, and put them in a row. This inline approach increases the refraction power,” Snigirev explains. “Varying the number of individual lenses it is possible to focus x-rays at different distances from meter to milimeter focus distance and use this technique for nano-focusing.”Rather than relying on double slit-type interferomter, which is difficult to accomplish and because of low resolution and loss of intensity, this team relied more on an interferometer related to the Billet split lens. In this classical optics technique, a lens is cut along the optic axis. This still allows for interference to be measured, but the intensity remains high, and the resolution is better.Snigirev points out that one of the advantages of this system is that it is tunable. . “You can tune this ‘nanoruler’ system easily by changing x-ray energy or by moving objects along the optical axis.” Another advantage of the system is in the silicon construction of the lenses. “Silicon is very stable,” Snigirev explains. “It can also take a high heat load, as from a beam. In this case we are using x-rays, but it could be used for future X-ray Free-Electron laser projects.”Indeed, the possible future applications of this interferometer set up have promise. “This could be very attractive for materials research,” Snigirev insists. “It would allow us a better look at photonic and colloidal crystals, multilayer structures, as well as other natural and synthetic mesoscopic materials”.“Interferometry is used a great deal right now, and it could be improved for research into materials and also for other purposes. It is a very important technique,” Snigirev continues. “However, as it is done now it can be difficult to implement. Our approach is simpler, and it could really help in the development of future applications and materials development.”More Information: A.

What we have done is develop a different set up that is simpler.” Snigirev is a scientist at ESRF in Grenoble France. Along with scientists at the Russian Kurchatov Research Center in Moscow, and at IMT RAS in Chernogolovka, Russia, Snigirev proposes that refractive bilenses made from silicon can be used in place of crystals.last_img read more
