Centrica chairman Carr mulls role advising on defence cuts

first_img Centrica chairman Carr mulls role advising on defence cuts Sunday 3 October 2010 11:02 pm whatsapp whatsapp CENTRICA chairman Roger Carr has been approached by the government about taking a role on the board of the Ministry of Defence (MoD), as part of its plan to appoint business leaders to oversee efficiency drives across all Whitehall departments.A number of business grandees have already been sounded out about the roles by Lord Browne, the former BP boss appointed earlier this year to spearhead the initiative, though talks are still at a preliminary stage.Carr, who as the former chairman of Cadbury led the chocolatier’s defence against hostile bidder Kraft earlier this year, is understood to be receptive in principle to the idea of taking up the senior independent director post at the MoD, believing the role to be a highly important one as ever-controversial cuts to the defence budget start to bite.However, he and Browne have yet to meet formally to discuss what such a position would entail, a process which will take place in the coming months.Other business leaders approached about similar board director roles include GlaxoSmithKline chairman Sir Chris Gent, though concerns over potential conflicts of interest are said to have derailed his appointment.

The banks affected were Banco Santander Totta, Caixa Geral de Depositos, Banco Espirito Santo, Banco BPI and Banco Comercial Portugal.The ratings blow to Lisbon’s biggest lenders came as yields on its three-year sovereign bonds reached record highs of 8.3 per cent. Irish banks, on the other hand, seemed to be edging closer to another rescue after reports that the ECB could agree a €35bn funding lifeline.The results of stress tests on Ireland’s financial system are expected to reveal an imminent need for a €25bn capital injection on Thursday, but new Prime Minister Enda Kenny has been negotiating behind the scenes to secure international funding.Irish bond yields shot up yesterday after cabinet minister Simon Coveney told the country’s national radio broadcaster that the government would push for “an element of burden sharing as well as a funding package for Irish banks” in negotiations.Dublin’s three-year debt costs jumped to over 10.7 per cent versus under 10 per cent a week ago.Even Germany was pulled into the storm, with its borrowing costs rising after chancellor Angela Merkel’s drubbing in regional elections, which she blamed on her stance on nuclear energy after the Japanese tsunami.Newedge’s Bill Blain said: “She looks weak and we have to wonder who ultimately replaces her. The critical question is what any potential successor’s outlook on Germany’s role at the centre of the European bailout will be.”Despite the political chaos, however, the euro rose due to hawkish remarks by ECB president Jean-Claude Trichet.

On the night in question, the accused man was asked to leave Crokers Bar when he headbutted the barman working on the premises.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Suffering mild headaches and some nausea, the court heard that the injured man did not suffer any lasting injuries – some minor bruising being the only injury.Wade, with five previous convictions, none of which are of a similar nature, was represented by Chris Lynch, solicitor who told the court that the incident was completely out of character for his client who only reacted as he had a lot of drink taken.The court heard that the accused man, who pleaded guilty, had since made contact with the injured party and that there was no ill feeling between the two men.Mr Lynch added that no suggestion was made for compensation but Judge O’Brien adjourned the matter for “some form of compensation” to be made.The case was marked for September 19 to come back before the courts and for “progress to be made”.

The Review of our Diocese was undertaken in August 2010. It was carried out by the independent National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church.The purpose of the Review was to examine all case files from 1975 to 2010, determine how allegations and concerns were dealt with, interview key persons involved in child safeguarding, judge how cases are currently assessed, how the statutory authorities are notified and thus determine if there are any current risks to children. I fully accept the recommendations contained in the Review and I am committed to implementing them. Indeed many have already been acted upon.During the past decades there have been very poor judgments and mistakes made. There were horrific acts of abuse of children by individual priests, that should never have happened, and if suspected should have been dealt with immediately in the appropriate manner.Insufficient emphasis was placed on the needs of victims, often in the misguided attempt to protect the reputation of the Church. There were frequent cases of delays or non-reporting of allegations and complaints about child sexual abuse. We are truly sorry for the terrible deeds that have been inflicted on so many by a small minority of priests. We offer our humble apologies once more and seek their forgiveness for the dreadful harm that has been done to them, their families and friends.Hopefully those grave errors will never be repeated.  I am glad to say that this Review has concluded that the Diocese now has a robust safeguarding policy and procedure in place for safeguarding children, that files are kept in a satisfactory and orderly fashion, that there is a prompt referral system to the state authorities and good co-operation with the Garda Síochána and the Health Service Executive (HSE).The sexual abuse of a young person by a member of the clergy in whom that child placed unhesitating trust inflicts a terrible wound in the lives of victims, families, communities and in the Church. It is repugnant and constitutes a stumbling-block to a life of faith in those who suffer. It gives scandal to the whole of society and is rightly regarded as repulsive. I have spent endless hours and given much time and energy to eradicating this evil, repairing what was damaged as best I could, restoring justice and putting structures in place to prevent, as far as possible, this criminal sin from happening again.The people of the Diocese of Raphoe have suffered much over the last twenty years with a proportionately high number of priests with complaints of child sexual abuse made against them. The number of allegations was also high. It is to our shame that we admit this. But this fact makes us all the more determined to create a safe environment for children in our parishes; to assist survivors in their pain and loss, and to have an up-to-date policy and procedures with best practice in place.The Diocese intends to make renewed contact with survivors of child sexual abuse by members of the clergy through its support persons and through notices in local newspapers so as to make sure that their needs for appropriate counselling, spiritual support or words of apology are adequately met. In doing so, it is not our intention to intrude in any way in the life of these people who have suffered abuse, and we fully respect their individual desires and preferences.Our Child Safeguarding Committee has recently published another Policy Document: Safeguarding Children. Policy and Procedures. 2011. It is the fruit of much expert advice and hard work. It is also the outcome of much training in parishes over the last number of years, and the establishment of best practice in the Diocese.“Towards Healing”, is a new, independent and confidential Counselling and Support Service for Survivors of Clerical, Religious & Institutional abuse.The service today announced the provision of extended opening hours following the publication of reports on the Diocese of Raphoe, Derry, Kilmore, Dromore, Ardagh and Clonmacnoise and Tuam.From today the “Towards Healing” service will open on an extended hours  basis, as follows:-  From 11am-11pm today, tomorrow and Friday and from 11am-8pm on  Saturday and Sunday. 3rdth & 4th December.The helpline can be contacted by calling:-      Freephone 1800-303416 from anywhere in IrelandAnd on 0800-0963315 from Northern Ireland and the UK.or by email at [email protected] affected by these terrible crimes can also make contact with the Counselling Services of the HSE who have a helpdesk in Letterkenny which is serviced from 8am to 12 midnight on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Thereafter as needs be. Their free phone is 1800 303529.While it was painful to be in the glare of public opinion, we must also be grateful to the media who were instrumental in bringing to light a lot of child sexual abuse and raising awareness of the awful crime it is. It all spurns us to do our utmost to protect children, to provide them with a safe and happy environment in their young days and to give their welfare paramount importance.Finally I would like to take this opportunity to say that the task of ensuring the safeguarding of young people in the Diocese of Raphoe is an ongoing one. We are determined to ensure that the structures we have put in place are effective and people will have access to the appropriate courses of action should they have any concerns or suspicions of child sexual abuse. We can assure you that our efforts in this regard will be unrelenting,ENDS By News Highland – November 30, 2011 Further drop in people receiving PUP in Donegal 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North Gardai continue to investigate Kilmacrennan firelast_img read more

California governor declares state of emergency as fires threaten thousands of homes

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — California Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday night declared a state of emergency for two counties near Los Angeles as a nearby fire spread to cover more than 10,000 acres. The Holy Fire, which began burning on Monday, is encroaching on Orange and Riverside Counties and was last reported to be only 5 percent contained.More than 1,000 firefighters, using 10 helicopters and seven additional aircraft, remain on the front lines battling the blaze, ABC Los Angeles station KABC-TV reported.No major injuries linked to the Holy Fire have been reported, but the Carr Fire in Northern California has claimed at least eight lives, according to officials. As of 7 p.m. Thursday, the Carr Fire had burned almost 180,000 acres and was nearly 50 percent contained, fire officials said. The official cause of the Holy Fire remains unknown, but police on Wednesday arrested 51-year-old Gordon Clark in connection to the blaze. Clark has been accused of setting a fire in Trabuco Canyon, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office said after he was formally charged on Thursday.Clark refused to go to court on Thursday, so his arraignment was rescheduled for today, according to the Associated Press. He’s charged with three counts of arson, resisting arrest, deterring an executive officer and is being held on $1 million bail. If he’s convicted, he could face life in prison. It’s unclear if Clark has hired legal counsel.Police on July 25 arrested Brandon McGlover on suspicion of setting the Cranston Fire, a blaze that destroyed fire homes, east of Los Angeles. He also could face life in prison if he’s convicted, the AP reported.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Swimmer, 67, apparently drowns in Hudson River during competition in New York City

first_imgWABC(NEW YORK) — A 67-year-old apparently drowned in the Hudson River during a distance-swimming competition on Friday afternoon, according to authorities.The man, whose name has not been released, was competing in the 8 Bridges Hudson River Swim when he disappeared during the second-to-last stage of the event. The entire competition covers 120 miles over seven days from the Rip Van Winkle Bridge, in upstate New York, to the Verrazzano Narrows Bridge, between Staten Island and Brooklyn.The stage Friday was to take swimmers from the Tappan Zee Bridge, renamed the Gov. Mario Cuomo Bridge, in Tarrytown, New York, to the George Washington Bridge in the Bronx, according to New York Open Water, which organized the competition. The stage was 15.7 miles long.The swimmer disappeared in the vicinity of the George Washington Bridge, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.After spending several hours searching for the lost competitor, the Coast Guard said it was transitioning to a “recovery” effort.“On behalf of New York Open Water, it is with great sadness that we report the loss of a swimmer today on Stage 6 of the 8 Bridges Open Water Swim,” the organizers said in a statement. “Our thoughts are first and foremost with the swimmer’s family and in respect for their privacy, we are declining to name the swimmer at this time.”The seventh and final day of the event, to be held Saturday, was canceled.A safety supervisor was monitoring the swimmers at the time of his disappearance, organizers said.“We can confirm that all swimmer safety protocols were in place and that the NYPD was escorting the field,” organizers said. “We will continue to work closely with the authorities and will provide updates as they become available.”The man’s body had not been recovered as of early Saturday.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

BYU Men’s Volleyball Faces UCLA Thursday

first_imgMay 2, 2018 /Sports News – Local BYU Men’s Volleyball Faces UCLA Thursday Written by Tags: Brenden Sander/BYU Men’s Volleyball/Gabi Garcia Fernandez/Leo Durkin/Price Jarman/UCLA FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailLOS ANGELES-Thursday, BYU men’s volleyball, the #2 seed in the NCAA Tournament nationally, finds itself in the odd position of being the higher seed in a matchup in enemy territory.By virtue of UCLA’s 3-1 win over Harvard in the first round Tuesday at their home arena, Pauley Pavilion, the Bruins remain there as the “road team” against the Cougars.Nevertheless, the Cougars still have many things going for them.These include four All-Americans on the roster as determined by the American Volleyball Coaches Association, Gabi Garcia Fernandez, Brenden Sander, Price Jarman and Leo Durkin.Fernandez was named as a second-team All-American, leading the Cougars in kills per set (3.44), aces per set (0.48) and digs per set (1.32). Additionally, the native of San Juan, Puerto Rico, adds 0.83 blocks per set for good measure.Sander, a native of Huntington Beach, Calif., made the first-team and amasses 3.43 kills per set, 0.96 digs per set and 0.39 aces per set.Jarman, a Las Vegas product, also made the second-team and contributes 1.15 blocks per set and 1.45 kills per set, hitting at a clip of .421.Durkin, also a native of Las Vegas, received honorable mention for the third consecutive season and boasts a .312 hitting percentage. He also contributes 10.11 assists per set, 1.30 digs per set and 0.70 blocks per set.Should the Cougars vanquish the Bruins Thursday, they would play the winner of the matchup between top-seeded Long Beach State and Ohio State May 5 at 7:00 pm MDT.
