Ballymount blaze rated a Category 1′ incident by EPA

September 22, 2019

first_imgUpdated at 7.11pmThe scene at Ballymount yesterday [Brian Lawless/PA Wire]THE FIRE AT the Oxigen recycling plant in Ballymount, west Dublin is being rated a ‘Category 1′ incident by the Environmental Protection Agency.Three units of Dublin Fire Brigade are continuing their efforts to contain the fire today, a day after it was first reported. An incident command unit is also at the scene, coordinating the response effort.This evening, a Dublin Fire Brigade spokesperson said they are still fighting the fire defensively and anticipate tackling the blaze into tomorrow.Category 1A spokesperson for the EPA said the ‘category 1′ rating was an internal classification used for incidents where the agency decided there was a need to make the public aware of an incident:“It’s used where there’s a fire, or an explosion, something the public should be made aware of — lower categories are used where the incident doesn’t spread from the immediate area.”Although the smoke is now subsiding, both the EPA and gardaí said the advice to householders in the area remained the same — people in the affected area are being advised to stay indoors and keep windows and doors closed.The EPA spokesperson said that the advice should be heeded in areas where there was a strong smoke smell.An operator at Dublin Fire Brigade HQ on Townsend Street said the control room had been fielding calls from as far away as Dublin 4 from people concerned about possible toxic fumes.[Brian Lawless/PA Wire]The fire was initially reported at 3.12am yesterday. Householders nearby reported hearing “little explosions” in the early hours of yesterday morning as the blaze spread.Around 25 fire personnel were at the scene this morning – the firefighters each staying at the ‘frontline’ for four hour periods, in line with normal procedure for high intensity work, before switching with a colleague and continuing their other shift duties.A Dublin Fire Brigade spokesperson said this morning that they could be at the scene for “several days” although it’s now hoped the all clear can be given at some stage tomorrow.Once the scene is declared safe, gardaí will enter the site to conduct forensic tests — the results of which will determine whether further investigation is warranted.  The cause of the fire is not yet known.There are no reports of any injuries.RTÉ reports that the Oxigen Environmental hopes to relocate as many of its Ballymount staff as possible. Around 60 staff have been affected by the blaze.- Additional reporting Aoife BarryRelated: Ballymount industrial estate fire could burn for rest of weekendRead: Orange alert: Coastal flood warning as 130km winds set to sweep countrylast_img read more

GameStop runs out of unlimited PS4 preorders

September 21, 2019

first_imgWhen the PlayStation 4 became available to pre-order last month, you may have heard that GameStop was able to place an unlimited amount of pre-orders. Well, if you took that to mean that GameStop had an unlimited amount of pre-orders, you’d be sorely mistaken, as the company just announced that it has run out.While it is pretty silly to announce anything as unlimited when there’s a limit to how unlimited it can be, the memo from Sony to GameStop did state that the pre-orders would be unlimited “until further notice,” which certainly means they could stop being unlimited whenever that notice is given. So, this is one of those rare times when you probably shouldn’t blame GameStop for doing GameStop-like things.You also can’t get around the brick-and-mortar pre-orders running out by placing one on the company’s website, as those have also run out. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have missed your chance to nab one of the first PS4s, as there are still other retailers in the world where you might be able to find a console at launch. There is also a chance that Sony will find a way to accomodate the high demand, and allocate GameStop — and other retailers — more units. Until then, though, you’ll have to do your pre-ordering elsewhere.It is a little strange that GameStop has cut off pre-orders, especially considering the chain is notorious for placing more pre-orders than units it’ll receive at launch. Usually, the chain fulfills the orders whenever the units trickle in, whether or not that is right at launch like a pre-order traditionally suggests. Perhaps Sony is somewhat emulating what Nintendo seemed to try with the Wii U, and is generating some kind of artificial scarcity in order to drum up even more excitement for the product.If you’re suddenly freaking out about not necessarily being able to pre-order a PS4 because you are unafraid of launch hardware or really want to own NBA 2K’s first game with LeBron James on the cover, add yourself to GameStop’s pre-order notification list. Or, head on over to Amazon.last_img read more

Canicule 6 astuces pas chères pour ne pas trop souffrir de la

September 20, 2019

first_imgCanicule : 6 astuces pas chères pour ne pas trop souffrir de la chaleurLe thermomètre s’affole ! Plus les températures augmentent et plus nos nuits sont sans sommeil. Avant même le début des grandes vacances, une vague de chaleur est en train de déferler sur l’Europe, et la France en particulier, et met nos niveaux d’énergie à plat. Parce qu’on n’a pas tous le budget d’investir dans une climatisation personnelle, Maxisciences propose quelques petits trucs pour garder le corps et le moral au frais pendant cet épisode caniculaire sans faire grimper le thermostat de son compte en banque. « Vous êtes au moins la 4e personne à me dire cela, aujourd’hui », répond une caissière d’un magasin de surgelés à une cliente qui vient de dire qu’elle avait sans doute le meilleur métier du monde actuellement.  C’est vrai, avec des températures dépassant allègrement les 30° en journée et une absence de vent, on serait tous tenté d’installer son bureau, son lit et sa tribu dans une boutique climatisée ! A défaut de vous conseiller de dormir dans un congélateur ou d’investir dans un climatiseur, on vous donne quelques indices gratuits (ou presque) dans votre quête de fraîcheur !1- On pimpe son ventilo !Si un ventilateur de base n’a jamais fait baisser les températures, il a au moins le mérite de faire circuler l’air. On n’hésite donc pas à en acheter un. Il est la base de notre équipement anti canicule. On n’oublie pas de le dépoussiérer régulièrement afin de le rendre plus efficace. On placera devant notre nouvel ami plusieurs bols ou des sachets remplis de glaçons ou des grandes bouteilles d’eau congelée. Cette petite astuce permet de rafraichir la pièce. Et si on veut s’offrir une petite pause-lecture dans un cocon bien aéré, on positionne le ventilo face à sa housse de couette (mais sans couette à l’intérieur), on y pénètre. L’air poussé par l’appareil transformera la housse en une tente très aérée. Attention ! On ne fait pas cela la nuit au risque de se réveiller avec un vilain mal de gorge. 2- On interdit de séjour les sources de chaleur On connaissait déjà la dangerosité de garder son portable allumé près de soi ou dans son lit  mais en cette période de grande chaleur, on a une raison supplémentaire de l’éloigner. On débranche ses appareils électroniques et électriques ou on les charge dans une pièce qu’on utilise moins afin de s’épargner leur rayonnement et donc une source de chaleur en plus… en trop ! 3- On investit le réfrigérateur Après avoir mis dans son frigo ses pulls pour éviter qu’ils boulochent, ses vernis pour qu’ils ne se figent pas, on débarrasse une nouvelle étagère pour y glisser son oreiller et ses draps. On les met dans un sac hermétique (pour d’évidentes raisons d’hygiène et qu’ils ne sentent pas le melon !) et on les y laisse toute une journée. Le soir avant de se coucher, on sort son linge de nuit et on refait son lit. Début de nuit fraîche garanti… On peut faire de même avec les vêtements que l’on va porter le lendemain4- On décore ses fenêtres À lire aussiPourquoi l’eau des océans est-elle salée ?On sait déjà qu’en cas de grosse chaleur, il faut fermer ses fenêtres, volets et/ou baisser les stores dans la journée pour éviter qu’elle n’entre dans la maison mais qu’une fois la nuit venue il faut les ouvrir pour aérer et tenter de récupérer un peu de fraîcheur. Par un temps caniculaire, on humidifie ses rideaux, des linges et on les place devant les fenêtres ouvertes ou entrebâillées afin de rafraîchir les pièces. On crée aussi des courants d’air pour profiter d’une légère brise. 5- On se relooke et on s’équipeAux oubliettes les tenues moulantes et/ou en matières synthétiques qui font souvent transpirer. On opte pour des matières naturelles et respirantes et on choisit des vêtements amples afin que l’air, aussi rare soit-il, puisse circuler.  Un chapeau et une crème adéquate pour se protéger du soleil sont évidemment obligatoires. Surtout, on pense à humidifier généreusement un foulard, un bandana qu’on noue autour de sa nuque pour réguler sa température. Une astuce éprouvée lors de méharées dans plusieurs déserts de la planète !   Dans son sac ou sa sacoche, on glisse un brumisateur (qui aura passé la nuit au réfrigérateur) dont on s’aspergera régulièrement au long de la journée. Mais on prendra garde à bien se sécher en tamponnant avec un mouchoir en papier afin que l’eau ne s’évapore pas et ne dessèche pas davantage la peau. Attention ! On n’habille pas son bébé avec des vêtements mouillés. Cela peut être mauvais pour sa santé. 6- On consomme l’eau de manière raisonnable  Inutile de prendre une douche trop froide au risque de faire subir un choc thermique à son corps, habitué à ses 37°. Tiède, elle sera moins traumatisante et plus reposante pour l’organisme. Autre fausse bonne idée, consommer un thé très chaud, comme les Touaregs. La température du corps va s’emballer et transpirer davantage. Même si la sueur est indispensable à l’évacuation des toxines, trop abondante elle peut mener à une déshydratation. On se contente de consommer des boissons (non alcoolisées) à températures modérées. Ni trop chaudes ni trop froides. On ne néglige pas non plus les bains de pieds. Ces derniers, comme d’autres extrémités du corps (mains, tête) agissent comme des thermo-régulateurs. Les plonger dans une bassine d’eau fraîche pendant une vingtaine de minutes permet de rééquilibrer la température.    Le 2 juillet 2018 à 17:24 • Marina Marcoutlast_img read more

Rooney doesnt want special treatment at DC United

first_imgDC United skipper Wayne Rooney, doesn’t like the idea of being treated differently at the club and he is also loving life in the United States.Life in the United States of America for Wayne Rooney has been a completely different scenario compared to what he lived in England, his move to DC United has been arguably one of the best decisions of his life when thinking about the best retirement possible for one of the best careers of an English player.Other great players from the Three Lions have also decided to go on this MLS path and succeeded, David Beckham is the most famous case as the former Manchester United player went to play for LA Galaxy for a while and had a very rewarding experience that even convinced him to stay and keep working as a businessman in the US.Nobody knew how well Wayne Rooney was going to adapt to the MLS, but the legendary striker responded quickly to those doubts and soon started his very own revolution at DC United.Today, the England all-time top scorer has the club from the capital close to the playoffs and he is delivering incredible performances every week. Just this past Wednesday against Toronto, Wayne produced a brilliant free-kick that made headlines around the world..@MenInBlazers’ #MiBWeekOfWayne continues!

I want to be treated the same as the players here.”“I’m part of this team.

My friends would finish work and we’d play about 9 pm in the evening. But 9 pm in the evening is 4 pm here and right in the middle of the kids finishing school so I need to try and find a slot.”“But just to go out with my children here is a lot different to back home. You can do it back home but it just had to be more planned.”“Here I can pick them up from school and ask what they want to do; cinema, shops, and restaurants.”“Whereas at home you’re looking over your shoulder wondering who’s watching you, who’s filming you whereas here it’s a little bit more chilled out.”“It’s actually strange, it’s normal stuff people do every day which I’ve missed out on which is great to do,” he concluded.Wayne Rooney’s goal in the first half lifted D.C.

Woman caught on camera stealing Christmas gift from Miami home

first_imgMIAMI (WSVN) – A family has been left heartbroken after a woman was caught on surveillance video stealing a child’s Christmas gift from their Miami home.“You really feel violated,” said Leonel Rodriguez. “That gift was intended to be for one of my kids.”The Rodriguez family never would have known if not for a security camera installed outside their home. “For once happy to have a camera that was able to catch it,” said Rodriguez.The family was going to be out of town for a few days, and the person who sent the Christmas presents wanted to make sure they were received.“Well, our sister-in-law notified us like on the 23rd or the 24th that our package had been delivered,” said Rodriguez.But the package was not there, and it looked like the LEGO Ninjago set inside it was gone forever.Fortunately for the family, Amazon saved the day. “We told Amazon what happened.

Nirav Modi scam PNB staff bought assets overseas stashed funds

September 5, 2019

first_img(L-R) Naomi Watts, Nirav Modi and Deborra-Lee Furness attend the Nirav Modi U.S. Boutique grand opening at Nirav Modi Boutique on September 8, 2015 in New York City.Jamie McCarthy/Getty ImagesPunjab National Bank (PNB) employees linked to the Rs 13,800 crore loan fraud have bought assets abroad and maintained overseas bank accounts, investigators have said. Details unearthed by investigating agencies CBI and the Enforcement Directorate reveal that the employees may have used funds from the Nirav Modi scam to create overseas assets, the Economic Times reported on Wednesday.The unnamed sources told the business daily that the bank has started proceedings to recoup the funds from the rogue employees. The bank has sought legal opinion in the matter, the report said.”While only a few employees have been named till now, more employees could be involved in the fraud. The bank has been intimated about the development,” the report quoted an undisclosed source as saying. “Investigating agencies like CBI and ED do not have jurisdiction outside India and may not be able to recover the money. A legal strategy is being put in place as to how to deal with the employee situation,” one of the sources added.In a revelation that rattled Indian banking sector and plunged the markets into chaos, PNB revealed in February that diamond merchant Nirav Modi had defrauded the bank of Rs 13,800 crore by manipulating the Letter of Undertaking (LoU) in connivance with bank staff.Dozens of LoUs issued by the senior staff at one of the Mumbai branches of the bank enabled Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi avail millions of dollars from overseas branches of other Indian banks.LoUs are used to provide credit guarantee of up to $20 million for exporters at a time. Public sector Category-I banks had the permission to offer these guarantees. In the PNB scam, multiple fraudulent letters were issued by the bank staff, allowing jewelers Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi defraud banks. Overseas branches of many leading banks advanced funds to Modi on the PNB guarantees, resulting in massive loses to India’s No. 2 lender.Investigators have found that the jewelers, instead of using funds for the stated purpose round-tripped the cash through the hawala route. In most cases, Modi and associates brought the money raised overseas through LoUs back to India the same day through fake transactions to Indian shell companies they owned.Not an easy process”In Nirav Modi’s companies, money was diverted after a few days through bogus transactions, but in Choksi’s companies, including Gitanjali Gems, there were many instances when the money returned to India within 24 hours,” an officer involved in the probe said.Investigators believe that more PNB staff may have been part of the Nirav Modi scam and stashed funds away overseas. CBI has booked seven PNB employees in connection with the massive fraud. While the bank has started processes to recover the money, legal experts have said it may not be an easy process. “It would be tough to recover these assets as in most instances people don’t create assets in their own name outside India. PNB will have to eventually prove in the court of law that a conspiracy was hatched by their employees against the bank and that the bank is a victim,” Zulfiquar Memon, Managing Partner of law firm MZM Legal, told ET.last_img read more

Reinterpretation of Tulán52 excavation suggests social complexity among late huntergatherers

Both were built by Neolithic people thousands of years ago. One site, called Tulán-54 is believed to be older than the second—perhaps as old as 5000 years. The second site, named Tulán-52 is believed to have been used from approximately 1110-900 BC until 550-360 BC. Excavation for the first was completed in 1985—the second was finished in 2015. After much study, researchers working on the excavations concluded that the complexes were semi-sedentary settlements—people both lived in them and used them for ceremonies. In this new effort, the researchers suggest that neither site was ever used as a place to live. They note that both complexes show many signs of being used for rituals but lack signs of settlement. Gold-plated vulture heads have been found, for example, along with mortars and grinding slabs that were used to prepare pigments, and plants that contain hallucinogens. Also, the remains of more than two dozen infants were found.In studying the complexes and the artifacts, the researchers found more similarities between the two than found in prior studies—similarities that suggested more complexity than had been realized before. They suggest that the layout of Tulán-54 and its artifacts indicate that the site was like a fully developed ceremonial center. The way the stones were used to build the complex is one example suggesting a massive concerted effort.The researchers also suggest that innovations that occurred in the second site, such as using camelids to carry material to the site, the use of farming to feed the people, and plant processing to produce hallucinogen effects and metallurgy, all point to a ceremonial purpose—though they suggest it is still not clear what the ceremonies were for. A pair of researchers has found evidence at the Tulán-52 excavation in Chile that suggests the need for a reinterpretation of how the stone complex was used. In their paper published in the journal Antiquity, Lautaro Núñez with Universidad Católica del Norte and Catherine Perlès with Allée de l’Université, suggest the new evidence shows more social complexity among the later hunter-gatherers who built and used the complex than previously thought.last_img read more

Legal action will be taken against owners of institutional buildings if proper

first_imgKolkata: The state Fire and Emergency Services department will issue notices to the owners of institutional buildings, if it is found that the firefighting systems in their establishments are not working properly.Subsequently, legal action will be taken against them, said Sujit Basu, minister of state for Fire and Emergency Services department on Monday. Basu, along with senior officials of the department, visited several shopping malls in the city. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedThe decision has been taken following a major fire that had broken out in a shopping complex in South Kolkata recently. Basu said fire audit in 100 institutional buildings will be held every month. Basu, along with senior officials of the department, visited a shopping complex at Kankurgachi and examined the firefighting system. He was annoyed when he saw that smoke alarms installed at the shopping complex did not work. He said the Fire department officials will make surprises checks and examine the condition of the fire extinguishers, sprinklers and anti-smoke devices. They will examine whether the fire exits are maintained properly or not. “Fire safety drills should be conducted regularly in institutional buildings periodically,” he said.

Incidents of fire in shopping malls and markets have become quite common in Kolkata. In 2018, fire broke out at Bagri Market, in which medicines and garments worth several crores of rupees were destroyed. In March 2010, a devastating fire broke out at Stephen Court, killing more than 40 people. Senior officials of the department said surprise checks will be carried out in KMC-run markets as well. In most of these markets, the condition of electrical wiring is in bad shape. It may be recalled that in the early 1980s, a devastating fire had broken out at Hogg Market. The New Market of today has come up on the burnt portion of the old Hogg Market.

first_imgBy Angelos AnastasiouMISLEADING and populist arguments by the Electricity Authority’s (EAC) employee unions, aiming at creating false impressions, were reported yesterday by the Association of Businesses for a Freely Competitive Energy Market in Cyprus (SEEAAEK).The association criticised unwarranted attacks by the unions aimed at discrediting it, including the circulation of a leaflet seeking to absolve the EAC of any responsibility for the extremely high cost of electricity.SEEAAEK said that the high cost of electricity was owed to the EAC’s fuel mix, which is completely based on liquid fuel instead of including solar energy – Cyprus’s strategic advantage – a decision made solely by the EAC.The association also claimed that the reason the state’s natural gas company (DEFA) has been unable to import natural gas to date, which would result in lower costs of electricity production, is that the EAC rejects any ‘intermediate solutions’ (i.e. importing natural gas pending the extraction of Cyprus-owned reserves) by citing some obscure “secret formulas” that suggest that imported natural gas will prove costlier than oil.Countering the argument that many private companies have been licensed but failed to invest thus far, the association argued that the private sector was ready to invest in the field of power production immediately, and listed the reasons why this has not yet been done.According to the SEEAAEK, the EAC’s ‘secret formulas’ do not allow for natural gas to be imported to Cyprus.Also, the market rules have been under review for years, so investors do not know the environment they would be investing in.Applications for large renewable energy source (RES) facilities that could compete with the EAC are not examined by the state’s energy regulatory authority (RAEK), the association said.In addition, applications for new power-generation facilities have not been accepted by RAEK for the last two years.While three construction permits for conventional fuel power plants have been granted, not only have they not been licensed to provide electricity but even their applications are not accepted, meaning they are allowed to build the plants but do not even accept their application to sell to consumers.Lastly, the pro-competition lobby group argued that the EAC does not provide clear information and policies as to the cost of using the distribution network, which it is allowed to monopolise in contravention of every rule of competition.SEEAAEK also noted that the EAC, under pressure from its employees’ unions, has purposefully pushed implementation of its restructuring plan back, close to the Troika-set date of sale, and argued that this would lead to a lower selling price. The unions, it said, must push for the restructuring to be implemented within 2014, so that the organisation can have four years of smooth operation under its belt and avoid valuation losses.Rebuffing another point in the employee unions’ brochure, the association said that the price of electricity in Cyprus is the highest in Europe before VAT. The unions had claimed that one of the reasons for the high price of electricity was that a 19 per cent mark-up is levied on the price as VAT, whereas most European countries allow a reduced 5.0 per cent mark-up.Lastly, the association argues that while the EAC’s distribution network must remain under government control for a few years following privatisation, and regardless of whether it ends up privatised or state-owned, it must be detached from the rest of the EAC so that the public interest is best served.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
