I’m ashamed to say how long they’ve been left without being turned on,” said cllr McEvoy.Cllr Brennan countered; “The lights at Newtown haven’t been turned on either.”The discussion then arose as to whose responsibility it is to power these pedestrian crossing lights. It was answered that the Electricity Supply Board (ESB) power the lights at the crossings.Answering the case at Bracklone street, senior executive engineer for Laois County Council Philip McVeigh said that, ‘the ESB still haven’t given the final requirements’.“The ESB seem to be dragging their heels. There doesn’t seem to be a way to get them moving. The ESB have already been paid for the works in Port,” argued cllr Mullins.“The ESB blames the council and the council blames the ESB,” stated cllr Brennan.Cllr Aisling Moran, who attended her first Municipal District meeting as a sitting councillor yesterday, asked whether there could be one designated person within the ESB that Laois County Council could contact in regards to this.Mr Philip McVeigh stated that the council has been in contact with members of the ESB regarding the lights at pedestrian crossings.SEE ALSO – Laois social housing adaption works 2019 funding slashed to two-thirds of last year’s amount No functioning lights at pedestrian crossings a source of danger say local councillors GAA Twittercenter_img WhatsApp Facebook TAGSCllr Aidan MullinsGraiguecullen Portarlington Municipal DistrictPedestrian crossingPortarlington Pinterest Home News Council No functioning lights at pedestrian crossings a source of danger say local… NewsCouncil Previous articleJoe Mallon Motors Car of the Week: 191 Renault Scenic from €86 per weekNext articleWell-known Laois woman speaks about overcoming stammer on national television Siun Lennonhttp://heresosiun.blogspot.ie/2016/09/the-lekkie-piccie-experience.htmlSiún Lennon joined LaoisToday in a full-time capacity after studying Journalism and New Media in the University of Limerick.

CLHIA calls for greater access to annuities within registered plans

first_img Related news The ongoing shift to defined-contribution (DC) pension plans, RRSPs, RRIFs, PRPPs and TFSAs from defined-benefit (DB) pension plans places “undue onus on individuals to make sure they have sustainable retirement income. … New measures are needed to help Canadians attain guaranteed retirement income security,” the CLHIA’s submission states.In particular, the CLHIA is calling for several changes in its submission designed to make it easier for investors to utilize annuities: “These options would allow individuals within tax-advantaged savings and retirement plans to ‘lock in’ guaranteed income streams at opportune times while adding no cost to the tax system, as those savings are already exempt from tax reporting until actually paid out of such plans. Tax costs associated with deferring payout are a reasonable trade-off for enhanced income security.”In addition, the CLHIA argues in the submission that it’s time for the federal government to eliminate, or reduce, the capital tax on Canadian financial institutions. “Such clear government action would send an unequivocal message that capital accumulation by financial institutions to protect consumers is encouraged and supported,” the submission states.Finally, the CLHIA’s submission notes that the investment industry supports government action to combat climate change, including measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, and to protect land and water. Keywords AnnuitiesCompanies Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association Annuities lead year-over-year premium growth in 2019 James Langton Share this article and your comments with peers on social media The federal government should ease access to annuities for investors who have RRSPs and TSFAs, cut taxes on financial services institutions and step up efforts to combat climate change, says the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association Inc. (CLHIA) in its submission to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance on the next federal budget.Specifically, CLHIA recommends that the government enable more flexible annuity options within registered pensions, RRSPs, RRIFs and TFSAs. The association also calls on the government to reduce or eliminate the capital tax on financial services institutions; and to make investments designed to mitigate the effects of climate change along with the insurance industry.

NWC to Ease Water Woes of Residents in Eastern St. Thomas

first_imgAdvertisements NWC to Ease Water Woes of Residents in Eastern St. Thomas UncategorizedApril 6, 2007 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Residents served by the Springfield pumping station in Eastern St. Thomas, who are facing disruption in their regular water supplies, should get some relief in another month, as the National Water Commission (NWC) is taking steps to address the situation.Minister of State for Housing, Transport, Water and Works, Dr. Fenton Ferguson, while addressing a recent public forum in Morant Bay, said that the NWC would be “taking water from one of the wells by the old Goodyear plant and connecting it to the Springfield system.”He said that the decision to tap into the Goodyear source was reached some two weeks ago, when he toured several NWC facilities in the area. He noted that recent drought conditions had reduced supply to the Springfield system.The Springfield facility has two deep well pumps and has a capacity to supply 1.95 million gallons per day. It also has four re-lift pumps, which serve the districts of Seaforth, Morant Bay, York, Mount Lyssons, Prospect, Roselle, Duhaney Pen, Alexander Park, Acacia Lane, Retreat and Highbury.Dr. Ferguson, in the meantime, informed that the NWC had secured the services of a hydrogeologist and the company was now in the process of making preparations to do a study of the Springfield deep wells, using a special camera “to see what is happening down there with a view of doing some corrective work.” RelatedNWC to Ease Water Woes of Residents in Eastern St. Thomascenter_img RelatedNWC to Ease Water Woes of Residents in Eastern St. Thomas RelatedNWC to Ease Water Woes of Residents in Eastern St. Thomaslast_img read more


Crucial Summit of the Americas Starts Friday

The last Summit was held in Argentina in 2005.The Summit will be a monumental occasion, as it is being hosted in the Caribbean for the first time. It was initiated by former United States President, Bill Clinton, in 1994, in Miami, Florida. Subsequent summits were held in Chile in 1998; Canada in 2001; and Argentina in 2005.It will also be the first time that current US President, Barack Obama, will be meeting western hemispheric Heads of Government in a forum of this magnitude since taking office in January.Expectations of the Summit are high, against the background of the prevailing global economic downturn, and the recent US$1.1 trillion commitment from members of the G20 Group of Countries, to resuscitate the global economy. The commitment was made during the G20 Summit in London, England on April 2.On Saturday (April 18), regional heads will engage in bilateral plenary sessions and discussions on matters pertaining to Human Prosperity, Environmental Sustainability, and Energy Security, agenda items on which decisions were taken during the 2005 Mar-del-Plata Summit in Argentina.Prior to this, Canadian and CARICOM Heads will meet to discuss matters of mutual interest. On Sunday, the Heads of State/Government will be in retreat, after which it is expected that the Declaration of Commitment for Port of Spain will be signed.The Summit will end on Sunday afternoon with a press conference at the Diplomatic Centre in Port-of-Spain.The spouses of the Heads of Government will also be involved in a number of planned activities. These include dialogue on the topic: ‘Promoting Environmental Sustainability as a Catalyst for Poverty Reduction’; touring the Wild Fowl Trust; and participating in an entrepreneurship symposium on the topic: ‘Transforming Local Talent into Sustainable Industries as a Catalyst to Poverty Reduction.’Several fora have also been scheduled for delegates from countries attending. These include: a Private Sector Forum; Civil Society Forum; Youth Forum of the Americas; and dialogue between Ministers of Foreign Affairs and social actors.Other activities include: a cocktail reception and cultural show, and an official dinner to be hosted by Trinidad’s Prime Minister Patrick Manning, and Mrs. Manning.Prime Minister Golding is slated to return to the island on Sunday (April 19). Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who is also attending the Summit, is expected to arrive in Jamaica, from Trinidad and Tobago, for a two-day visit on the same date.

University Of Colorado Seeks To Answer: What Should Every Westerner Know?

first_img Published: July 12, 1999 Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Attention Westerners: the Center of the American West at the University of Colorado at Boulder has a question for you.What, as a recent transplant or a longtime resident, is the information that every Westerner needs to know?In preparation for a new publication, history Professor Patricia Nelson Limerick and geography Professor William Riebsame are investigating what Westerners think about their region, using an interactive survey on the Internet and a series of community meetings.The “Handbook for the New West” is an attempt to acquaint Americans — both residents of the West and residents of other regions — with the workings of Western regional identity. The handbook is aimed at both newcomers and old-timers and will focus on such timely issues as cultural diversity, environmental protection and regional growth and development.”Many issues which divide Westerners today have roots in the region’s history,” said Limerick. “An earnest effort to think regionally will help citizens of the region live with a greater sense of common cause with each other and with the West’s spectacular landscapes and wildlife.”In order to find out what Westerners have to say, the Center of the American West has developed an interactive site at http://centerwest.org/westerner. The site features a general survey, “What Should Every Westerner Know?” as well as places for site visitors to log their thoughts about specific issues like environmental protection, community, changing economies and public lands.Those without Internet access who would like to participate in the project can contact the center directly to receive the survey. Requests may be mailed to the Center of the American West, Attn: Handbook Project, Campus Box 234, Boulder, CO 80309-0234, or by calling (303) 492-4067.With support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Riebsame and Limerick also will travel throughout the West to conduct round-table community discussions. The authors plan to hold 15 to 20 such meetings by November, some with specific interest groups such as ranchers, federal employees and business people, and some at certain locations such as small towns on the Great Plains and Indian reservations.Limerick and Riebsame also worked together to produce the “Atlas of the New West,” published in 1997. The atlas used maps, photographs and essays to paint a portrait of a changing region.During the upcoming academic year, the authors will synthesize responses to the various inquiries into essays for the handbook. The handbook also will include texts by other prominent Western commentators.The Center of the American West expects the book, which will include maps, cartoons, illustrations and photographs, to be at the publishers, W.W. Norton of New York, by July 2000.last_img read more
