MAN ACCUSED OF THREATENING TO KILL 96-YEAR-OLD GRETA LILLY LOSES BID TO HAVE CASE MOVED FROM DONEGAL

first_imgA MAN accused of the burglary of 96-year-old Buncrana pensioner Greta Lilly has failed in a legal bid to have the case against him heard in Dublin.Thomas Alcock, a 48-year-old of no fixed abode, appeared before Letterkenny Circuit Court today.A barrister had argued before Judge John O’Hagan that his client could not get an impartial jury in Donegal because of the ‘widespread local and national coverage of this case’. Michael Morrisey told the judge that the case had attracted huge media attention and in light of a spate of other burglaries across Donegal since the incident involving Ms Lilly in January, he felt justice would be best served ‘by moving the case to another jurisdiction’.Patricia McLaughlin, the DPP’s counsel, opposed the application.She pointed out that the case had indeed been covered nationally and locally.She also said no formal notice of the application had been received by the DPP.Ms McLaughlin said the DPP was ready to proceed with the case.Judge John O’Hagan rose for a few minutes to consider the application. On his return he ruled that the defence had not given the DPP seven days notice of the application as required by law.But he also ruled that the case should be heard before a jury in Donegal.Alcock, who faces charges of burglary and threats to kill, was remanded in custody to appear for trial on July 16.At hearing.* For legal reasons, we cannot publish comments in ongoing court cases.MAN ACCUSED OF THREATENING TO KILL 96-YEAR-OLD GRETA LILLY LOSES BID TO HAVE CASE MOVED FROM DONEGAL was last modified: April 24th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:MAN ACCUSED OF THREATENING TO KILL 96-YEAR-OLD GRETA LILLY LOSES BID TO HAVE CASE MOVED FROM DONEGALlast_img read more

Are Distributed Teams Less Effective?

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Analysis#biz Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… john paul titlow Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img Are colleagues who collaborate remotely via the Internet at a disadvantage compared to their bricks-and-mortar office-bound counterparts? One recent study from Harvard University suggests so, according to a blog post by Wired columnist Clive Thompson. The study, titled “Does Collocation Inform the Impact of Collaboration?” examined this very question using a sample 35,000 biomedical research papers. The team of three scientists calculated the physical distance between the authors of each paper and looked at how many citations the papers received, as a way of measuring how influential they were. The study found that researchers who lived closer together produced more impactful research. In fact, the closer the authors were, the better. “Teams located in the same building did better than teams that were merely in the same city, and teams that were in the same city did better than those that were inter-city,” writes Thompson. This is a potentially important question for businesses of all sizes, as the workforce becomes increasingly mobile, thanks to smart phones and cloud-based Web apps. Of course, it’s hard to know if these results apply to other forms of work, beyond biomedical research. The advantages and disadvantages of working on a distributed team may well depend on the type of work being performed, with some tasks and projects being more ideal for being worked on remotely than others.What do you think think? Is it better to work remotely or in the same physical space?

Energy Efficiency Evolution in Western Missouri

first_imgThough Missouri is among the dozen or so states that have yet to adopt a statewide energy efficiency code for residential and private commercial construction, it is not without green building proponents and strategies.About a year ago, GBA noted that the Building Codes Assistance Project, a Washington, DC, advocacy group that offers code-development assistance to state and local officials, has been closely tracking state and local code initiatives, including those in Missouri, where homebuilding associations have argued against regulations they say will raise prices. But green builders in the state have nonetheless proposed programs designed to encourage high-performance construction, including one that would offer financial incentives, in the form of reduced permit fees, for building to the National Association of Home Builders’ National Green Building Standard, also known as the ICC-700.And now the ICC-700 – serving as the residential construction component of the International Code Council’s International Green Construction Code – is being considered for adoption as a voluntary guideline for homebuilding in Clay County, part of the Kansas City metropolitan area. (Clay County and Jefferson County, near St. Louis, are the only two counties in Missouri authorized to adopt, without voter approval, regulations for residential and private commercial construction, according to the BCAP.)Soliciting feedback from the communityA recent story in the Liberty Tribune, which serves Clay County, describes the drive to implement ICC-700 on a voluntary basis as largely collaborative, with the county’s Building Codes Commission set to hold public meetings on the subject on July 14 and 28, and August 11.The man behind the proposal, Matt Tapp, the county’s director of planning and zoning, included a provision to grade participating projects based on their compliance with the National Green Building Standard, and then post each home’s grade on a special sign in front of the house when it’s listed for sale.“It’s been kind of in the back of my mind ever since I got here in 2008 that we needed to move toward a green building standard,” Tapp told the paper. “We want to make the houses that are being built in Clay County more sustainable. It’s just a good idea.”last_img read more

China is Alleged Source of Illegal Blowing Agent

first_img RELATED ARTICLES A Banned Threat to the Ozone ReappearsAvoiding the Global Warming Impact of InsulationSlow Progress on New Blowing Agents for PolyisoNext Generation Spray Foams Trickle into the Market CFC-11 is cheaper and more effectiveBlowing agents produce the gas bubbles in foam insulation that make polyurethane such an effective thermal insulator. But scientists linked a decline in the ozone layer to the production of CFC-11 (trichlorofluoromethane), and an international pact called the Montreal Protocol called for phasing it and certain other chemicals out of production.Scientists began detecting elevated levels of CFC-11 after 2012, and now the EIA says it knows why Chinese manufacturers like it so much: It works better and costs less than the blowing agents that were supposed to replace it.Acting on the report in Nature, EIA investigators found several possible sellers of CFC-11, some of which were advertising online. EIA sources later contacted a number of concerns in China’s growing polyurethane market. Of 21 companies that responded to their inquiry, 18 confirmed their use of the chemical to make polyurethane (PU) foam.“Producers and traders of PU foam blowing agent told EIA sources that the majority of China’s foam industry continues to use CFC-11 due to its better quality and lower price,” the report said.One seller of CFC-11 told the EIA that while alternatives have been developed, their manufacturers force buyers to use other ingredients as well. He called it a “price fixing system, very different from what you can get from us pricewise.” Some companies apparently keep drums of a more environmentally friendly alternative, HCFC-141b, on hand “just for show” when inspectors show up.Enforcement efforts to shut down companies making the chemical illegally “seem to have had limited impact.” One company said that as much as 90% of its foam production used CFC-11.The EIA’s Avipsa Mahapatra told The Guardian that investigators were “dumbfounded” when the companies admitting using CFC-11, adding, “These companies, again and again, told us everybody else does this.”center_img Researchers earlier this year said were surprised to find atmospheric levels of a banned blowing agent used in the production of spray polyurethane foam were much higher than expected. All they could deduce was the source was somewhere in East Asia.Now, a Washington-based organization called the Environmental Investigative Agency says in a new report that the CFC-11 blowing agent is coming from Chinese factories making rigid polyurethane foam insulation. Use of the banned chemical, which damages the atmosphere’s ozone layer as well as contributes to global warming, was said to be “widespread and pervasive.”“EIA has evidence from eighteen companies in ten provinces that they use CFC-11,” the report’s introduction reads. “Detailed discussions with company executives make clear that these are not isolated incidents but instead represent common practice across the industry.”The rise in emissions that began in 2012 was detailed in a study published in the journal Nature in May.Investigators also said there is “significant potential” for illegal trade in the chemical, raising the possibility that foam could be made with the chemical in other countries. The EIA called on both China and parties that signed the Montreal Protocol banning the chemical to take immediate action to investigate and halt the practice.last_img read more

Committee headed by UP Chief Secretary to probe BHU incident, says Governor
