This UK share had fallen around nine-tenths in value from the levels I bought in at a couple of years ago. I hung on in the hope that it could recover some of this ground. However, some chilling new over the weekend fanned my fears that the Cineworld share price could eventually be reduced to zero.

The tough global economy means that many tech specialists might suffer in the short to medium term. However, the rocketing growth of home-working means that UK shares like Iomart could prove highly lucrative. One survey from the Institute of Directors this week suggested that three-quarters of employers will maintain increased levels of home-working even after Covid-19 peters out.I’d also buy shares in Keywords Studios for the post-coronavirus landscape. Video games usage has boomed in 2020 as citizens have either chosen or been forced to stay indoors. The boffins at Statista reckon the number of gamers will continue to climb, too (by 14% between now and 2023). I’d buy Keywords, a provider of a wide range of services to games developers, to get rich off the back of this trend.Helping you to get rich!These UK shares are just a couple of the top stocks I’m thinking of buying after selling out of Cineworld. There’s a world of opportunity for eagle-eyed investors to grab a bargain or two after the stock market crash. And The Motley Fool’s vast library of special reports can help you to find even more.

Jerusalem diocese provides health, education services to Palestinians

We are inspired through the ENS article by the excellent work that is being done in its hospitals, clinics and educational institutions. What better way to turn inspiration into a tangible gift than by making a donation through the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem http://www.afedj.org . As we read, the needs are great whether they be at the Princess Basma Center in East Jerusalem or St. Luke’s Hospital in Nablus; but with our help each challenge can be met.

The question is, what do we, as a caring Christian community, do about this? With all the need around the world, where does the Holy Land fit into our outreach? The Christian population in the region is shrinking, some say withering. The Episcopal Church offers not only services, but the principles of tolerance and respect for differences to all who enter. We cannot abandon the work of Christ in the place where he walked. Support for the Holy Land should be at the core of each parish’s and individual’s commitment. Pray for peace in the Holy Land and please support the work of the Diocese. The American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem is ready and eager to provide more information on the institutions, pilgrimages and needs. http://www.afedj.org Israel-Palestine, Rector Collierville, TN Rector Albany, NY January 17, 2013 at 7:31 pm Jesus met peoples needs no matter their religion.

The center operates a through the Women’s Empowerment Program to teach women how to care for their disabled children. ENS Photo/Lynette Wilson[Episcopal News Service] For every one physically or developmentally disabled child treated at the Princess Basma Center for Disabled Children in East Jerusalem, another 20 are treated at intermediate or local centers throughout the West Bank.“We are the only center of excellence that provides comprehensive rehab in Palestine; we compete with others in the Arab World and no one is getting our results,” said Maha Yasmineh, Princess Basma’s acting chief executive officer. “We’ve reached a level we have to keep up, no one else can do it.”In 2005, the Princess Basma Center was recognized for its high-quality, innovative service to disabled children and their families. The center was opened in 1965 and in 1987 it was the first school to integrate disabled children into mainstream classrooms.“It’s been such a success we’re becoming mentors to other schools,” said Yasmineh, adding that many of the school’s disabled graduates have gone on to university.[ooyala code=”loaWRnODp6w15sus9TugrvJU7_owiRjD”]School was not in session and the hallways quiet except for a few mothers and their children when Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori visited Princess Basma in late December during a 12-day trip to Israel and the Palestinian Territories over Christmas and New Year.The presiding bishop visited the diocese at the invitation of Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem Suheil Dawani.“The Diocese of Jerusalem has a long and important relationship with the American Episcopal Church, your support to this diocese has been steadfast and generous,” said Dawani, to Jefferts Schori, during the visit.During her visit to Princess Basma, which was named for the princess of Jordan who inaugurated the center in the ‘60s, the presiding bishop learned about the Mother’s Empowerment Program and some of the challenges the center is facing.Each year some 250 to 300 mothers and their children spend between two and four weeks living at the center. The children receive comprehensive rehabilitation and the mothers learn to care for their children, many of whom suffer congenital anomalies.“A lot of the mothers don’t know anything about the disability,” said Dr. Waddah Malhees, the medical director of the rehabilitation program. “We teach them how to care for their children, and follow up with rehab.”(In 2012, Malhees added, Princess Basma became the first center to treat autistic Palestinian children, and is the only center providing care for autistic children and training for their families.)More recently, however, because of a budget shortfall the mothers and children must leave the center on Thursday evenings to return on Saturdays, meaning they must pay for transportation costs and navigate check points between Jerusalem and their homes in the West Bank, the staff said.Eighty-seven percent of the center’s budget is generated by service fees and school fees. The 13 percent budget deficit forecast for 2013, represents about $268,000, Yasmineh said.“Thirteen percent is a lot of money,” she said. “We’re seeing children in need in the Palestinian Territories, and if we don’t do it, no one will do it.”The Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem operates 35 health and education institutions across five countries and the Palestinian Authority-controlled West Bank and also in Gaza, where its Ahli Arab Hospital is one of just three Christian-run institutions.A woman and her baby, who suffers from a congenital anomaly, seek care at the Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza. ENS Photo/Lynette WilsonClick here for a separate story on the Gaza hospital.“These institutions carry a wonderful and an awesome ministry in a place of multi-faith and multi-ethnic backgrounds and it is so vital for the church to continue offering these services because these institutions as well as the churches, they provide a moderate and very important role in society,” said the Very Rev. Hosam Naoum, dean of St. George’s Cathedral in Jerusalem, in a Jan. 1 interview in the courtyard of St. George’s guesthouse.“We exist to build up a community of tolerance, reconciliation and a community that has mutual understanding of each other’s faith and culture and tradition,” Naoum added. “These institutions, as well as the parish ministry, provide healthy, fertile ground for future and potential leaders of the community. And people who are well-educated, people who are healthy in their relationships. And this is what we dream of really, of establishing a community that enables both Jews and Palestinians to live side by side and to create a society where everyone matters.”Schools are the majority of the diocesan institutions, and St. John’s School in Haifa has educated generations of Muslim, Jewish and Christian children. Each morning the 575 students, 50 percent of them Muslim, gather in morning assembly and school is recognized not only for its high-quality education (scientific research is introduced in kindergarten) but for its “peace” education.“We are doing a wonderful job, but [we] don’t evangelize,” said Wajeeh Awad, who has served the school for 52 years, during a luncheon in Haifa in late December. Awad is the former principal and now serves on the school’s board of directors.A 40-bed elder care and community center is under construction on the site of St. Peter’s Church in Birzeit, a suburb of Ramallah. The church’s plan is to lease  space on the ground level to a commmercial tenant. ENS Photo/Lynette WilsonIn addition to Princess Basma, the hospital in Gaza and the school in Haifa, the presiding bishop also visited St. Luke’s Hospital in Nablus; a new diabetes clinic set to open soon on the site of St. Andrew’s Church in Ramallah; and the construction site of a new 40-bed elder care and community center on the site of St. Peter’s Church in Birzeit, a suburb of Ramallah.Reflecting on the visits, the presiding bishop said, “It’s apparent that the Christians are the primary bridge builders, and see their ministry as serving all of God’s people, all of Abraham’s children.“The work that the Diocese of Jerusalem is doing is profoundly important.”In the Palestinian Territories, 10 to 15 percent of the population suffers from diabetes, with high levels of stress thought to be a factor, in contrast to three percent worldwide, said Dr. Hisham Nassar, who serves as a health care consultant to the diocese. Nassar was speaking during a luncheon at St. Andrew’s Church in Ramallah in late December.The diabetes clinic located at the church will be open six days a week and expects to serve between 300 and 400 people a month. The clinic also will host monthly information sessions, said Dawani, during a late December tour of the state-of-the-art clinic.A nurse at St. Luke’s Hospital in Nablus gives a tour of the hospital’s neonatal unit. An average of 180 babies are born each month at the in the hospital in the West Bank. ENS Photo/Lynette WilsonAt St. Luke’s Hospital in Nablus, nine midwives deliver an average of 180 babies a month. If a mother has a normal delivery, her hospital stay is six hours. The hospital also has a neonatal intensive care unit for complicated cases.With 150 employees, the 60-bed medical and surgical hospital serves annually in Nablus and its surrounding villages more than 70,000 patients “regardless of race or social status.”However, a CT scan, broken since 2010, sits idle on the hospital’s lower level, which poses a problem for the hospital that operates the only trauma center in the northern West Bank, an area with a population of 500,000 for which it also serves as a referral center for all neurosurgery cases.Dr. Walid Kerry, the general manager of St. Luke’s Hospital in Nablus, Bishop James Magness and Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori during a recent visit to the hospital. ENS Photo/Lynette Wilson“Here we’ve got people providing medical care at a low cost, serving everyone who walks through the door. How are they doing neurology and cardiology [without a functioning CT scan]? Seeing that this machine doesn’t work really inspired me [to help],” said Bishop James Magness, the Episcopal Church’s bishop suffragan for federal ministries, following a visit to the hospital.“Their level of commitment is inspiring and really makes me want to help. Seeing the schools and hospitals and how they work and bring people together.”Betty Dagher Majaj, the longtime director of the Princess Basma Center for Disabled Children in East Jerusalem, explains to Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and her staff that the center’s hydrotherapy pool remains empty because the center cannot afford to keep it chlorinated and heated. From left, Alex Baumgarten, director of the Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations, the presiding bishop, Dr. Waddah Malhees, the center’s rehabilitation medical director, Majaj, and the Rev. Canon Bob Edmunds, the Episcopal Church’s Middle East global partnerships officer. ENS Photo/Lynette WilsonThe various diocesan ministries face many challenges, some a result of the world-wide economic crisis, some the consequence of politics in Israel and Palestine. But the budget shortfall at Princess Basma, which has also led to 12 staff members losing their jobs, and which may force the closure of the center’s orthopedics workshop; the broken CT scan at St. Luke’s; and the Gaza hospital’s transition after losing financial support from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency haven’t affected the institution’s ability to provide quality care for patients.“The place where you see hope is in the medical field,” said the Rev. Canon Robert Edmunds, the Episcopal Church’s Middle East global partnerships officer, in an interview with ENS in Jerusalem. “To treat whomever comes through the door. And the level of care offered is the level of care that they can provide. They all do the best with what they’ve got.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service.  Director of Music Morristown, NJ AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Comments are closed.

He discusses how using a mix of cover crops is beneficial to his soil. McLain says that it’s a common misnomer that using a mix of cover crops is always more expensive.They also discuss how earthworms, or “soil workers” as Werling calls them, make it to where he’s not farming with just his topsoil, but he’s farming with about 4 feet of soil.

‘Dynamic’ Thomas does it all

first_imgFacebook Facebook Matt Jenningshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/matt-jennings/ Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Matt Jenningshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/matt-jennings/ printWhen the Paschal Panthers played Weatherford in a barnburner football game in October, Dylan Thomas was everywhere.Playing quarterback and receiver, Thomas accounted for 370 yards of offense and six touchdowns to lead the Panthers to a 52-45 overtime win, including the game-winning 30-yard touchdown reception. However, his best play of the game, at least in Paschal head coach Matt Cook’s eyes, came on defense.“We stuck him on the defensive end for that game as a corner to guard their best player,” Cook says.That player was wide receiver Chase Warren, who led Weatherford in receiving yards (611) and touchdown catches (seven) in 2014. With the Roos threatening in the red zone, quarterback Bryce Burks tossed a quick screen to Warren, who turned upfield and looked like he was heading for a touchdown.Thomas shed a block and wrapped Warren up at the 5-yard line. He didn’t bring him down though. Instead, Thomas stripped the ball from Warren’s hands, recovered the fumble and started running the other way, ending the Weatherford scoring threat in an instant.Those plays are what Cook relies on his best athlete to do. He simply lets Thomas go out and be the best player on the field, putting him at a slew of different positions to try and utilize his talents as much as possible. During his time on the varsity squad at Paschal, Thomas has played quarterback, running back, wide receiver, safety, cornerback and returner.“It’s really easy to coach him just because he’s so dynamic athletically,” Cook says.Thomas played every snap of that game, offense and defense, though he had only taken reps at quarterback in practice that week.“When we needed it most,” the coach says, “even without all the technique, without the everyday practice on the defensive end, he was able to grit out every single snap. Not complaining.”Beyond his physical abilities, that determination, fighting through the game without a complaint, is what stands out to Cook. The coach says Thomas’ demeanor and personality are what make him a special player.“Sometimes when you get a real athletic kid like him, you struggle with the character issues. And he’s not one that we struggle with at all,” Cook says. “Since day one, since we met him, he’s been a ‘yes sir,’ ‘no sir’ guy. A team player. He’ll do whatever he has to do to help the team win.”That attitude is something that comes from Dylan’s father, Tory Thomas.“He wants to win. So it means that if he has to go do (something), he’s going to do it to the best of his ability,” Dylan’s father says. “That’s one of the things I’ve always instilled in him.”Dylan, one of nine siblings, has had a football in his hands since he was a toddler. His father views sports not just as a way for his kids to have fun, but also as a way to stay out of trouble. He says his motto is, “Sports, not courts.”The junior certainly doesn’t seem to have time to get into trouble. In addition to football, Dylan starts at point guard for the Paschal boys basketball team and runs track for the Panthers as well.“It keeps me busy, keeps me grinding and getting better,” Dylan says.The junior committed to play wide receiver at TCU in December to the delight of his father, who says he had been praying for that since Dylan was a freshman. Being close enough to go see his son’s games is a dream come true for the elder Thomas.His son is excited about it too, saying that getting to be close to his family was a big part of the decision.“I’m right down the street, literally 13 minutes away from my house,” he says of TCU. “So it’s really easy to get back and forth, and I’ll get to see my family all the time. It’s just home.”Coach Cook played for the Horned Frogs under Pat Sullivan in the mid-’90s. So it means a lot to him that his star player will be playing college football on the same field where he played.The 6-foot-2, 190-pound athlete has speed and acceleration that help him hit gaps in the defense and explode for huge gains. Even when the pocket collapses, he’s often able to elude the pressure and get to the second level of the defense. Cook says Thomas has “huge upside” as a receiver in the Frogs’ new spread attack because of that athleticism.“I think the offense TCU runs now is going to lend itself to him extremely well. He’d be great on the short stuff because he has the breakaway speed, and he’s also got the ability to post up, because of his basketball (experience),” Cook says. “He’ll be able to post up and have a big body and be a possession receiver.”The decision wasn’t easy for Dylan to make though. He’s played quarterback since he was 4 years old. It’s been hard to give up the dream of playing that position at the next level.“I’ve always liked TCU,” he says. “And really (the) one thing that didn’t make me commit right away to TCU when I first got the offer my sophomore year was the fact that they wanted me to play receiver. And I don’t know, I was doing a lot of thinking about it. I was kind of just waiting for someone to offer me as a quarterback.”It was a frustrating experience for Dylan, his father says. He had grown up idolizing John Elway, Randall Cunningham and Steve Young. He asked for miniature versions of their helmets every year for Christmas. He dreamed of playing quarterback.Even for the guy who only cares about winning and will do whatever is best for the team, giving that up was hard. His father had to tell him that colleges were going to view him differently, that this move might be what was best for his playing career.Dylan eventually accepted that, and he acknowledges that he has a more instinctive feel for the receiver position.“It seems like I know things that I really wasn’t taught as a receiver,” he says. “It seems a little more natural to me, a little easier. It just kind of comes to me.”But his father also told him to keep believing he could play quarterback.“That’s one thing I’ve always told him. Don’t ever give up on your dream,” he says.The dreams Tory Thomas has for his son started a long time ago. That forced fumble against Weatherford was nice, but to this day, his favorite play of his son’s athletic career is still one that came before his fifth birthday.Thomas was just 4 years old playing in a youth league flag football game. The coach wouldn’t let him carry the ball because he was too young. Dylan’s father couldn’t accept that decision.“I begged and pleaded with the guy,” he says. “And he said, ‘I’m going to give him a chance. And if he fumbles my ball, he won’t run my ball again.’”Dylan’s father agreed. So, backed up against his own goal line, the coach called for a handoff to Dylan.And Dylan took it to the house. Juking out defenders and showing off his speed, Dylan took the ball almost the entire 80-yard length of the peewee field for a touchdown on his first carry.“He went from one end zone to the other,” the proud father recalls with a laugh. “And dude, I ran all the way with him.” Matt Jennings Matt Jenningshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/matt-jennings/ IMAGE: Head to head Linkedin Twitter Martin takes advantage of Paschal’s mistakes Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday ReddIt Previous articleRedshirting ChildhoodNext articleMayor Betsy Price to run for 3rd term Matt Jennings RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Twitter Linkedin ReddIt Paschal controls own fate heading into Friday finale + posts Matt Jenningshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/matt-jennings/ ‘Dynamic’ Thomas does it alllast_img read more

Pilot for eCollege replacement starts soon

first_imgFacebook Twitter From Muscat to Fort Worth Kaylee Bowershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kaylee-bowers/ ReddIt Texas Frog Camps are now free for incoming students Choosing TCU as a religious minority student + posts printeCollege is heading out, and the test for the new program is coming soon.The pilot program for D2L’s Brightspace, which will replace eCollege and be called TCU Online, begins next fall, said Romana Hughes, the assistant provost of educational technology and faculty development, who is overseeing the transition.A maximum of about 35 faculty members and 4,000 students will be in the pilot, Hughes said.The overarching goal is to go live with TCU Online in spring 2017, incorporating classes from the spring, then the summer and finally the fall, she said.Transition project members are working to make the switch easy for both faculty and students so they can log on and find their course, Hughes said.So far, it seems to be working, she said, but training for students and faculty will be needed because the platform has so many tools.All students will be enrolled in an online orientation for TCU Online, said Kerrie Meister, the project lead of switching out of eCollege. She said she hopes to target incoming students to get them working with the program early on.“The idea is to try and provide different types of learning opportunities for faculty, and students as well, for how they want to learn,” said Joanna Schmidt, who is developing the training.Online training plans are not complete, but the team plans to finish them in time for the pilot.Lunch meetings are being held for faculty members selected to participate in the pilot March 4 and March 14, Hughes said.There, faculty members will see a demo of the program and will start committing to the pilot.“It’s going to be a stretch to learn it a little bit, but any new software kind of goes that way,” said Billy Farmer, a faculty member who was part of the group that evaluated available systems during the eCollege replacement process.Sophomore interior design major Callie Welsh, junior criminal justice major Aaron Curry, sophomore economics major Brandon Clark and junior speech pathology major Alyssia Escamilla share thoughts on eCollege.

Radio Paiman back on the air thanks to support from Reporters Without Borders

first_img May 3, 2021 Find out more July 15, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Radio Paiman back on the air thanks to support from Reporters Without Borders News Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” RSF_en Organisation June 2, 2021 Find out more March 11, 2021 Find out more RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan Follow the news on Afghanistan AfghanistanAsia – Pacific News Related documents the_first_news_of_radio_paiman_.mp3MPEG – 902.43 KB News AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts Riven by conflicts between influential groups, Afghanistan is one of the world’s most dangerous countries for journalists. The Taliban, politicians and religious leaders are all guilty of press freedom violations and attacks on journalists. The violations take many forms including threats, physical attacks, arbitrary detentions, abusive trials and convictions, and kidnapping. The violence against Radio Paiman, an independent radio station in the northern province of Baghlan which has received financial support from Reporters Without Borders, is typical of this problem.Eight gunmen wrecked all of the station’s equipment in an attack on 31 January 2011. “After overpowering our night watchman, they systematically destroyed all of our equipment,” said station director Shir Mohammad Jahesh, who was one of the first to arrive the next morning. “Nothing was spared. Our computers were smashed to pieces. Our recording studio was ransacked. Our radio console and microphones did not work. They even broke the tables and chairs.”Mr Jahesh added: “The authorities still say they cannot identify those who did it. But, given the nature of the threats we received shortly after the attacks, there is little doubt that it was the Taliban.”Believing the media can play an educational and democratic role, the station broadcast programmes with a significant social dimension. One of them was a phone-in programme that allowed Baghlan province residents to talk about their daily life and problems. Another programme specialized in civic education for young people on such subjects as the right to vote and democratic representation and participation.The editorial freedom shown by Radio Paiman gave rise to threats and reprisals. The violence and destructiveness of last January’s attack was nonetheless unprecedented. “In just a few minutes, they wiped out what it had taken us five years to build.”In view of the scale of the damage, Reporters Without Borders provided the station with grant of $8,000 to enable it to buy the FM transmitter and antenna system it needed in order to be able to resume broadcasting.Radio Païman went back on the air on 15 May, broadcasting from a new, safer location but with its desire for independence and its mission to inform unchanged.Listen to the message that the station transmitted when it resumed broadcasting: This action was made possible by the EU’s European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR), of which Reporters Without Borders is a beneficiary.

This year we’re hopeful the complete story of Showcase will be inspirational,” she said.PSHA President, Vikki Sung, says the organization had to make the difficult decision and apologized for any inconvenience the delay may cause. “As a non-profit we still want to be able to fulfill our mission to raise money for music and the arts this year and in the future. We thank everyone for the loyalty and on-going support we have received and are looking forward to bringing our supporters a taste of Showcase as we develop a new plan.”PSHA’s main concern is the continued health and well-being of the extended Showcase family which includes guests, designers, trades, volunteers, vendors, members and the communities that host the beautiful design homes. PSHA will continue to diligently monitor the situation and will have new dates and event information by July 31, 2020, under the guidance of city, state and county health and safety mandates.Ticket holders won’t have to wait long to get a sneak peek of the house. Although PSHA assures that all tickets will be honored at the rescheduled home tour, those that have already purchased tickets will also be treated to a special bonus, a Virtual Gala planned for this summer.The special, live event will be a behind-the scenes look at the Showcase house and will offer a tour of the home in progress, interviews with designers, never-before-seen product demonstrations, musical performances and the kick off of an exciting online auction with unique items. Current ticket holders will be extended an invitation to join the event for free and others can purchase tickets at www.pasadenashowcase.org for $25.00 plus a small transaction fee.PSHA worked aggressively to ensure that construction safely continued in the design areas. Over the past two months, PSHA collaborated with the designers and their trades to follow all health and safety mandates, including requiring facial coverings, repeated hand sanitizing, severely reducing the number of and location of workers, and continued site inspection for compliance. “We were a construction site when we were hit by COVID-19, and as the Site Superintendent, I took my responsibility for the health and safety of our workers and volunteers seriously, says Jill Fosselman. “I am so grateful for everyone who chose to work at the site within the health and safety mandates, and so incredibly proud that we all pulled together safely to finish the construction. It’s an amazing family home that’s undergone significant upgrades and modernizations,” she says. “What I love most is that the improvements honor and respect the historic integrity of the home and original architectural vision.”The 2020 Showcase House of Design promises to be a special home tour worth waiting for. The Federal-country style home, designed by “Hollywood Society’s Architect” Gerard R. Colcord, is situated on park-like grounds in leafy north Arcadia. New for this year’s event is a schedule of onsite musical performances and PSHA remains hopeful the Saturday night concerts will continue as planned.To date, PSHA has raised more than $23 million from the Pasadena Showcase House of Design, PSHA’s only fundraiser. Money has gone to support music and art programs throughout Southern California as well as three of the organization’s own music programs, Music MobileTM, Youth Concert and an Instrumental Competition. Each year PSHA awards gifts and grants to a diverse list of local and regional non-profit organizations in support of their efforts in the community. PSHA also underwrites concerts to ensure that the joy of live music is available to a broad range of audiences. Its support of non-profit organizations enriches the community and provides opportunities for a variety of groups, from students to seniors, to learn, enjoy and grow from their experiences in these programs. In addition, PSHA has a longstanding history of supporting the Los Angeles Philharmonic and its community outreach programs.For more information on tickets and updates, please visit the website at www.pasadenashowcase.org.

Limerick key for Irish water chemical trial

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Irish Water to replace old water mains on St Nessan’s Road Limerick customers to benefit from extension of Irish Water’s First Fix free scheme to tackle leaks Advertisement Update: Works underway to resolve discolouration of water in Raheen area Email WhatsApp Walk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April TAGSfeaturedIrish Waterleadorthophosphatepilot schemepipes center_img by Bernie [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up LIMERICK has been chosen as the trial site for Irish Water to use a chemical to reduce the amount of lead leaking into the city’s supply of drinking water.Many homes, particularly those built up until the 1970’s, are getting their water supply through lead pipes which can lead to health concerns if it gets into drinking water.Irish Water now plans to treat the Limerick water supply with orthophosphate, a chemical used in the UK and Northern Ireland to dramatically reduce the levels of lead in water.However it is classified as a phosphate and can cause problems in fresh water and lakes but because Limerick is on an estuary, Irish Water say it is safe to add it to the city water supply.A spokeswoman for the company told the Limerick Post that the city had been chosen for the pilot project because of “environmental concerns.Phosphates can cause algal bloom which in turn can be very detrimental to a natural water environment. But the Shannon Estuary, being tidal, is much less likely to be affected, the spokeswoman explained.Orthophosphate works by coating the insides of the pipes and sealing off the lead but the spokeswoman said that, in the long run, the ideal option is replacement of the pipes.“When we install meters and find a lead pipe, we can advise the householder that they may also have lead pipes carrying water into their home. Irish Water will replace the pipes where they are on public property but it will be up to the householder to replace those on their private property,” she explained.The company has estimated 200,000 homes across the country may have lead plumbing and contaminated water carries serious health risks.She added that “the chemical, which is widely used elsewhere, is perfectly safe in the water supply for people”.It’s understood that the pilot scheme in Limerick could start in a matter of weeks but it will be a year or more before a decision is made on a national scheme.The proposal has just come through the public consultation process and will have to be approved by the energy regulator. The Limerick scheme will then be subject to an environmental study.
