I know from speaking to local clubs and organisations these measures really helped with their applications,” she explained.“The Sports Capital Programme was re-instated by the last Fine Gael government in 2012, after it had been cut by Fianna Fáil in the wake of the economic crash. It represents an excellent value for money investment. It is crucial we invest in sport and the health of our population, particularly with obesity is on the rise. Investing in sport is good for the health of the nation, both literally and economically.“Fine Gael is using our economic progress to invest in communities around the country and ensure that everyone can benefit. Sport is just one important element of this. In 2016, more than €22.8 million was paid out to 680 organisations to support the development of sports facilities and the purchase of sports equipment through the excellent Sports Capital Programme,” Senator Byrne concluded.More news herelast_img read more

We had grown up understanding the meaning of respect, honor and integrity. Our parents wore those badges. We knew what we should do and what we shouldn’t. If we didn’t do what we should do, we got a pop on the behind end.”Their moral upbringing and relationships with the Lord were evident in the music Shenandoah played and in the lives the band member led. Songs like “Sundays in the South” and “Church on Cumberland Road” resonated with country music fans and propelled the band’s songs to the top of the charts.Raybon will share the stories behind the songs at the songwriter’s showcase on Friday night in what he said will be a high-energy show. “We’ll be high energy with heart,” Raybon said. “We’ll tell the stories of our music and sing our music and we’ll do it all with Southern-flavored humor.”“The Heart Behind the Music” Songwriter’s Showcase is sponsored by the Troy Arts Council. Showtime is 7 p.m. Friday, January 13 at the Claudia Crosby Theater on the campus of Troy University. General admission tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for students with an ID. Tickets are available online through the TAC facebook page and at the door. Sponsored Content Most of the songs that Raybon will share at the Crosby Friday night will be songs that are familiar to Shenandoah fans.Raybon was in Nashville in 1984 hoping, to make it big in country music when he got a call from Mike McGuire, drummer for a not-so-well-known band, MGM, in Muscle Shoals asking him to consider joining the band.“About 15,000 people a week go to Nashville after the same thing you’re doing so that doesn’t leave you a lot of chances,” Raybon said. “When the call came, I was living on my last can on corn. The band didn’t pay much but the pay was steady and, too, I was only an hour and half from Nashville. I took the job out of the need for survival.”Raybon said when he left Nashville he never thought that would be the move that would establish his career. Next UpRaybon will be one of three singer-songwriters that will be featured in “The Heart Behind the Music” Songwriter’s Showcase at 7 p.m. Friday, January 13 at the Claudia Crosby Theater on the campus of Troy University.The singer-songwriters, Raybon, John Ford Coley and Lenny LeBlanc, will share the stories and music behind their hit songs in an informal performance that will give the audience an up close and personal look at three of the most outstanding singer-songwriters of the day.“Good songs are a part of you,” Raybon said. “They are the extension of a thought or maybe a story that you want to elaborate on or maybe give a different ending to. At the songwriter’s show case, we’ll share those stories and we’ll sing those songs.” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By The Penny Hoarder Latest Storieslast_img read more

Courts empower employees

first_img–Every New Zealand employee is afforded protection from unfair dismissal. –Australia has introduced laws to protect employees from arbitrary dismissal.–Loophole closed over employing contractors and temps. In New Zealand, courtscan extend legal rights to them.–Protracted dismissal process includes a series of oral and written warnings andreasonable time to improve performance.–Hiring staff on a trial or probationary basis is no longer a defence if thatemployee is dismissed. Courts empower employeesOn 1 Jun 2001 in Personnel Today Employersin Australia and New Zealand are facing an uphill struggle to recruit andretain good staff against a background of mounting employment legislation.Richard Rudman reportsTheseare good times for recruitment consultants in Australia and New Zealand. Demandfor skilled and experienced staff remains high in relatively buoyant andconfident economies. And perhaps most significant for consultants, employersare making much greater use of external providers for the recruit and selectionprocesses. Atthe same time globalisation has arrived with a bang. Mergers, takeovers andalliances are no longer hot news, and most of the world’s big players are nowparticipating or represented in the Australasian market place.Internationallink-ups can bring new services, better technologies and access to worldwidenetworks. Yet, according to a New Zealand consultant who is resisting offshoresuitors, many agencies are still “body shops” staffed byinexperienced recruiters driven by commission-based earnings. By keeping intouch with the individuals they place in jobs, recruiters can add to theemployer’s problem of employee “churn” in a tight labour market. Theseare also good times for Internet recruitment sites. Australians and NewZealanders have always taken enthusiastically to new technologies – and thepopularity of e-recruitment is clear from the ANZ Bank’s job advertisementssurveys. Internet advertising in Australia has grown from a monthly average of20,000 adverts two years ago to 90,000 today, while newspaper advert numbershave fallen from 26,000 to 22,000. In New Zealand, Internet job advert numbershave risen by one-third in the past year to a monthly average of 14,000, whilenewspaper advert numbers have remained steady at around 29,000.Theseare good times too for job applicants. Demand for skilled labour remains high.Which means employers have to bid up salaries and benefits for those whoseskills and experience are in demand. Plus the law offers ever-increasingprotection for employees.Sothese may not be such good times for employers. Fuelled by a job boom in IT ande-commerce, and international shortages in other occupations, the”churn-and-burn” rate for many staff is rising. Some employers areresponding by shifting their focus from recruitment to retention, reckoningthat it will cost less – and prove easier – to keep hold of their current goodperformers than to find, hire and train replacements.However,these efforts by employers can be thwarted. Earlier this year, for example, theNew Zealand government became concerned that the non-taxable status (as capitalsums) of so-called restrictive covenant and inducement payments was threateningthe tax base. These payments are now taxable as income, and are thus lesseffective as incentives for staff.Employeesin both countries seem to be enjoying greater legal protection of theircontracted rights and privileges. New Zealand, for example, has had a statutoryremedy for unfair dismissal for 30 years. Originally, it applied only to staffcovered by collective instruments or to union members. Now, it applies to everyemployee – regardless of level or position in the organisation. Laws to protectemployees from arbitrary dismissal were introduced in Australia during the1990s.  Inboth countries these laws may have gone further than intended, often givingmore weight to procedure than substance, and thus giving inefficient andunder-performing workers a means to contest their dismissal. Employers oftenfound it easier to pay up than to fight these cases through the employmenttribunals.Facingthis risk, many companies adopted defensive strategies which still influencetheir recruitment and employment practices. Letters of appointment, forexample, which set out employment terms and job requirements in minute andlegalistic detail are common. Someprefer not to employ any permanent staff, relying instead on contractors andstaff from temp agencies. Research reported in Australia’s Business ReviewWeekly indicates that 11% of Australian companies now hire more temporary andcontract staff, and 5% have cancelled or suspended plans to recruit morepermanent staff – all because of the unfair dismissal rules.Onething is clear in both countries – bad recruitment decisions can be verycostly. This is especially true if an employer attempts dismissal withoutgiving the staff member a series of oral and written warnings and a reasonableopportunity to improve performance. Oneway around this problem is to hire a temporary employee or contractor from arecruitment company and later offer that person full-time employment if thereis a good match. But care is needed. In New Zealand, new employment relationslegislation empowers the courts to determine whether a so-called contractor is,in reality, an employee and thus entitled to the benefits of being an employeeregardless of the label the parties might give their relationship. Moreover,hiring people on a trial or probationary basis is no longer a defence if theemployer tries to dismiss a short-term employee who proves unsuitable. Inaddition, all prospective employees must be given written details of a proposedemployment agreement – and time to take advice on it. As a result, bothcountries have seen an upsurge in detailed employment contracts and, at seniorexecutive levels, so-called “pre-nuptial” agreements providing heftypayouts for individual employees who don’t make it.Theseare good times indeed for employment lawyers and consultants.Changingthe face of employment legislation–New Zealand government taxes inducement payments to retain staff.

Icechrono1: a probabilistic model to compute a common and optimized chronology for several ice cores

first_imgPolar ice cores provide exceptional archives of past environmental conditions. The dating of ice cores and the estimation of the age-scale uncertainty are essential to interpret the climate and environmental records that they contain. It is, however, a complex problem which involves different methods. Here, we present IceChrono1, a new probabilistic model integrating various sources of chronological information to produce a common and optimized chronology for several ice cores, as well as its uncertainty. IceChrono1 is based on the inference of three quantities: the surface accumulation rate, the lock-in depth (LID) of air bubbles and the thinning function. The chronological information integrated into IceChrono1 are modeling scenarios of the sedimentation process (accumulation of snow, densification of snow into ice and air trapping, ice flow), ice- and air-dated horizons, ice and air depth intervals with known durations, delta depth observations (depth shift between synchronous events recorded in the ice and in the air) and finally ice, air or mix stratigraphic links in between ice cores. the inference problem is formulated as a least squares optimisation, implying that all densities of probabilities are assumed to be Gaussian. It is numerically solved using the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm (thus assuming that the model is almost linear in the vicinity of the solution) and a numerical evaluation of the model’s Jacobian. IceChrono1 is freely available under the General Public License v3 open source license.last_img read more

Petrobras completes test at Jupiter pre-salt area offshore Brazil

first_img Petrobras completes test at Jupiter pre-salt exploration area off Brazil. (Credit: Keri Jackson from Pixabay.) Brazilian state-controlled oil company Petroleo Brasileiro (Petrobras) has completed a drill stem test (DST) at the Jupiter pre-salt area in Block BM-S-24 concession in the Santos basin.The well is located about 295km from the city of Rio de Janeiro, in a water depth of 2,183m.Acquired in 2001, the Block BM-S-24 concession is operated by Petrobras with ownership of 80% stake and the remaining 20% is held by Petrogal Brazil.The test assessed the pre-salt carbonate reservoirs in the well, which is internally called Apollonia (3-BRSA-1246- RJS).Test results confirm the potentiality of the Jupiter areaPetrobras said that the test confirmed “excellent productivity” of the well, containing value added condensed oil.It also said that the condensed oil has a high gas-oil ratio as well as high carbon dioxide content that need application of innovative technologies for its commercial production.The company will use the fluid samples which were collected in the test to validate the HISEP High Pressure Separation technology, developed and patented by Petrobras.The technology separates and re-injects the reservoir rocks using the equipment which is installed at the bottom of the sea, of the CO2 existing in the oil produced.In a qualification stage and a pilot in another area operated by Petrobras, HISEP is expected to be installed in 2024 to perform longer term tests to enable a new concept of production development.Petrobras said: “This technological innovation has the potential to enable the Jupiter production development pilot project, as well as other projects with high gas-oil and CO2 ratio fluids, opening a new exploration and production development frontier for opportunities in Petrobras’ deep and ultra-deep water portfolio.”Recently, Petrobras has agreed to sell its stake in 27 onshore exploration and production concessions, located in Espírito Santo, Brazil. The test assessed the pre-salt carbonate reservoirs in the well, located in a water depth of 2,183mlast_img read more
