He will say: “I want one of the great legacies of this Government to be the complete modernisation of our public services. These reforms aren’t about theory or ideology – they are about people’s lives.”Health minister Andrew Lansley will also speak about the plans, adding: “If we want better results for patients and a more efficient NHS, then we must devolve power to GPs.“It is clear that GPs and nurses are ready and willing to take on commissioning responsibilities [and these] changes will enable them to make the decisions that better meet the needs of their local communities and improve outcomes for their patients.”The NHS Confederation has warned the plans are “extraordinarily risky,” could be detrimental to healthcare and even result in hospital closures.

Unilever and P&G fined for price fixing

first_imgWednesday 13 April 2011 7:18 am Unilever and P&G fined for price fixing Show Comments ▼ Share Consumer goods giants Unilever and Procter & Gamble were fined 315.2 million euros (£281m) by EU regulators for fixing washing powder prices in eight EU countries.Germany’s Henkel, which alerted the European Commission to the cartel in laundry detergents, was not fined. The penalty for Unilever was 104m euros while P&G was fined 211.2m euros.As part of the Commission’s settlement procedure, the EU watchdog had cut the fines by ten per cent in return for the firms’ admissions that they participated in the cartel, which the Commission had dubbed “purity” in its investigation.“By acknowledging their participation in the cartel, the companies enabled the Commission to swiftly conclude its investigation,” EU Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia said in a statement.The fines had also been reduced under the Commission’s leniency programme related to voluntary disclosure of information.World No.1 household products producer P&G owns the Tide, Gain and Era brands of washing powder while Anglo-Dutch consumer goods group Unilever makes detergent products under the brand names Omo and Surf. Henkel owns the Persil brand in most of Europe, while Unilever owns it in Britain, Ireland and France.The cartel operated in Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain and the Netherlands between 2002 to 2005, the regulator said.Unilever said it had used the investigation findings to tighten up its internal procedures, while adding that the fine was covered by provisions made in its 2010 results.“All key managers in Europe have been retrained on the European competition rules and are well placed to participate fully in industry-wide environmental initiatives,” the company said in a statement.The Commission can fine companies up to 10 percent of annual turnover for breaching EU rules. This is the third EU decision using the settlement procedure after cases in the chipmaking and animal feed sectors last year.The EU watchdog raided the three companies in June 2008 on suspicion of price fixing, and also sought information from US-based household products firm Sara Lee. It has imposed fines close to 12bn euros on cartels in the five years to 2010. center_img whatsapp whatsapp John Dunne Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Internet : a weapon on mass revolution ?

first_img News Download the article in PDF Organisation Almost 500 bloggers were arrested in 2008 because of their online activity. Gamal Eid, Director of the Arabic Network for Human Rights in Cairo said, “It was the worst year since 1952”, the date on which Egypt theoretically became a democracy.

The same day, members of a group on the social networking site Facebook were arrested for having passed on information about the strike. 1,254 strikes are known to be organised in the country between 6 April and 31 December 2008, despite the fact that they are illegal. Agence France-Presse correspondent in Cairo, Mona Salem described the 6 April movement as a “rare” moment in contemporary Egyptian history. Having covered the story for the agency, she believes the interest of the movement “does not lie in its results, because nothing has changed. It simply shows that young people without any particular political affiliation care about what is going on in their society”. This nationalist upsurge has puzzled the government, which has been caught off its guard. Social networking sites can be used as a means of getting out protest messages and the Internet represents an invaluable space for the new Egyptian generation since it is gradually replacing the unions and political campaigning in the universities. “The government is like an octopus reaching out its tentacles to try to find a guilty party every time it is criticised. The Internet helps us to make our protest better known. It doesn’t matter that there wasn’t any demonstration in one city. Thanks to this means of communication, it can take place in another”, one “6 April” blogger told Reporters Without Borders. الإنترنت: سلاح الثورة الشاملة؟ Since 6 April 2008, many Egyptian Internet users have been tirelessly communicating a message that their society must change. Having grown up under the state of emergency law that prevents them from expressing themselves freely, they have also been the first in line for harassment from the authorities. More than 500 of them were arrested in 2008, because of the content of their online posts. The Internet has been a background clamour in Egyptian political life since the 2005 legislative elections. It’s a buzz that is attracting more and more Egyptians. The reputation of the local blogopshere is growing at the same speed as the numbers of its enthusiastic users. Today the country has the highest Internet penetration rate on the African continent (20% of the population regularly goes online).The fact that young Egyptians are turning to the Internet in ever greater numbers has led to the authorities’ stepping up their surveillance of this group. Security agents now throng the stock exchange district of the capital (Borsa Street) listening in to bloggers talking about “revolution”, “change”, “anger”, and the date of 6 April 2009.A call went out in 2009 for 6 April to become a day of “anger”. Every means of communication has since been pressed into service to spread the message far and wide, including slogans scrawled on bank notes and thousands of text messages sent to random phone numbers. The young Facebook users have no political experience and their real numbers are unknown. But that is their strength. Since any type of meeting is banned under the state of emergency law which the country has been under for 28 years, the Internet allows meetings to be held through a computer.If you can’t control the Internet, intimidate its users “We have an independent press but it doesn’t break any rules. We post photos and film on our blogs to break those rules. It is a bit like letting the genie out of the lamp, which can never go back into it”, said Wael Abbas, one of Egypt’s most emblematic bloggers. It was he who exposed one of the biggest scandals of the decade, by posting videos on his blog in January 2007, showing two police officers carrying out acts of torture in a Cairo police station, almost certainly leading to their conviction and being sent to prison, something which has not happened in the country for more than 20 years. Many young people started blogging because they were inspired by his example. Since the development of the Internet trend, the screw has been tightening around telecommunications. Since 2008, Egyptians have been unable to get an unregistered telephone line but the control is not total. New rules are now in force under which users of WiFi now have to pay for a connection, for which they need to provide an email address to have the password and user name sent. Moreover, a draft law is under debate in Parliament about Net regulation, providing for prison sentences for “abusive Internet use” and for “publication of multi-media content without government permission”. But the bloggers have continued their work. Blogger Mohammed Adel, who was held for four months for posting articles online and taking up a political position on the Israel-Palestinian question, has not given up. To date, he still does not know where he was held. It was his fourth arrest in two years, but he continues the fight.

It is pushing at the limits of dissidence. “In Egypt, dissidence is being homosexual or undermining established moral order”, says Iman Farag. “It has nothing to do with young people being concerned about the future of their country, who learn about politics from books. Perhaps that is their “revolution”. Compared to countries seen as repressive like China, Vietnam or, closer, Tunisia, Libya and Saudi Arabia, the Egyptian regime does not see these young people as dissidents. Activists who use this network do not hide themselves and their means of communication rely on completely open viral techniques.

Strong criticism of flood risk group

first_imgNewsLocal NewsStrong criticism of flood risk groupBy Alan Jacques – April 15, 2016 692 Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Advertisement Print Maurice Quinlivan TDSINN Féin TD for Limerick, Maurice Quinlivan, has strongly criticised the interdepartmental group set up to work with the OPW for the management of flood risk after it emerged that it didn’t meet for four years and the main group for almost six years.Deputy Quinlivan said that this was wholly irresponsible and unacceptable when so many families were driven from their homes by the floodwaters.“To the people of Corbally, King’s Island, Castleconnell, other flooded parts of Limerick, this is not good enough. Families were driven from their homes by rising flood waters, others only remained through the sterling work of the emergency services and the decency of neighbours”, he said. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “I had dealings with the head of the interdepartmental group, Brian Hayes MEP, when he came to Limerick in 2014. He guaranteed me that we would have all the funding we needed to make sure that the flooding like we saw in King’s Island wouldn’t happen again.“Limerick never saw Brian Hayes or any funding after that”, Deputy Quinlivan declared.“There has to be a serious look at how we approach flooding and flood prevention in this country. Sinn Féin has already put forward the idea of a Shannon River Management body. Firstly though, the flood management group need to offer an explanation to the Irish people for the dereliction of their duty.”by Alan [email protected] WhatsApp WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Twitter TAGSfloodinglimerickMaurice Quinlivan TDOffice of Public Works (OPW)Sinn Fein center_img Previous article#nowbooking The Buzzcocks 40 years going steadyNext articleBallyneety man helps rebuild lives in the Philippines Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Linkedin Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Facebook Email Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clashlast_img read more

The most worrisome issue being that a number of them were asked to vacate their rooms and consequently have nowhere to go.Taking note of the submissions made in the plea, Justice Bhushan highlighted the grievance and stated that “the petition says North-Eastern people are facing difficulties as others mistook them to be Chinese.”Appearing for the Government, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta informed the Bench that there were Helplines in place specifically to redress such grievances. “All those Helplines are dead”, Gonsalves responded promptly.”There should be awareness. When people are locked in, there are difficulties that arise. However, something needs to be done”, remarked Justice Kaul, suggesting that the lockdown is necessary, but it comes with certain difficulties. However, it is important to spread more awareness amongst people so they do not mistreat anyone, the Bench seemed to suggest.The Solicitor went on to assure the Bench that the Government would look into the issue and take care. With this assurance, the Bench deemed it appropriate to not interfere and disposed of the matter.”The SG assures us to take care of all points mentioned in the petition. We dispose of the petition”, concluded Justice Bhushan.Supreme Court is hearing a plea highlighting adversities faced by North Eastern Indian, who are being mistaken for Chinese People and being discriminated against in light of the #COVID19 pandemic.— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) May 8, 2020Next Storylast_img read more
