first_imgThe magical corncrake has been given a chance at survival in Donegal and other counties after Ireland received €4.3 million from the EU to fund a four-year conservation project for the bird.Minister for Culture Josepha Madigan welcomed the announcement of €4.3 million in EU Life funding, awarded to her Department’s National Parks and Wildlife Service, for a project focused on improving the conservation status of the corncrake in Ireland.Once synonymous with the Irish countryside, the population of the corncrake has declined by 85% since the 1970s, with a 92% decrease in range. This means that the species is now effectively confined to Donegal and parts of Connacht, including offshore islands; supporting the corncrake in these remaining areas is critical to its survival.Announcing the award of funding today Madigan said: “The decline in corncrake numbers is of significant conservation concern in Ireland. Conserving species in their natural habitats requires a strategic approach to succeed.”Madigan said that the funding “will allow my Department, working in concert with stakeholders across government and the communities in question, to put concrete and sustainable measures in place to help secure the future of this species, which has a special place in Irish culture”.The €5.9m budget ‘LIFE Atlantic Crex’ project is due to commence in January 2020 and will run for five years. The project will see conservation work funded in project sites in Counties Donegal, Mayo and Galway. Working in partnership with landowners, the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Údarás na Gaeltachta, Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology and Fota Wildlife Park, the project aims to deliver a 20% increase on the 2018 population of the corncrake recorded in Ireland by 2024.“During 2019 we have introduced a number of significant measures to protect and promote Ireland’s biodiversity,” Madigan added.”The corncrake is a species listed for special protection under Annex 1 of the EU Birds Directive.Grant of €4.3M aims to save corncrake and increase numbers was last modified: December 19th, 2019 by StephenShare 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:Corncrakedonegalgrantlast_img read more

first_imgPosterous, the increasingly popular minimalist blogging service, just launched its first iPhone application this morning. The app, called PicPosterous, allows users to upload pictures and videos to their blogs. Until now, the only way to upload this content was to email it to Posterous. The developers of the iPhone app still have to work out some kinks, but once the company fixes these issues, PicPosterous could quickly take over email as the most convenient way to upload media files to Posterous.Minimalist Blogging Done RightWhen Posterous launched, the only way to upload content to the site was to email it to post@posterous.com. If you hadn’t already registered an account, Posterous would automatically set up a blog for you and email you back with all the details. The iPhone application follows a similar philosophy, though with a strong focus on pictures and videos. You don’t have to register for the service to upload pictures – your new Posterous domain name will appear at the bottom of the screen. Another nice feature of the app is that you can easily add new pictures and videos to an album without starting a new blog post.

While the app does a nice job with media content, you can’t actually use it to forward links or just straightforward text to your site. Once you are registered with Posterous, you can also choose to forward your images to a number of services like Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, or your own blog. From within the app, however, you can’t control where your images go, though you can turn Posterous’ auto-post function on or off from within the app when you start a new album. Some earlier reviews of the app noted that any image that wasn’t taking in landscape mode would appear on its side once uploaded to the service. In reality, however, it just takes a few minutes for the site to detect the orientation of the image and the problem will correct itself automatically.Overall, this app is a good start. If you are at an event, for example, you could easily snap pictures and videos from within the app and upload them to your Posterous blog within seconds. Thanks to Posterous’ ability to auto-post your files to other services, your friends don’t even have to come to your site – the images will just go to whatever service they are already on.The app brings Posterous’ philosophy of keeping things very simple to the iPhone, though sometimes to the detriment of the user experience. Until the Posterous team fixes some of these issues with the app, we are more likely to just continue to email our media files and texts to Posterous than to fire up PicPosterous.

first_imgA medical superintendent was suspended, while departmental action was initiated against another doctor for ‘negligence’ after a critically ill infant died in a hospital in Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh after allegedly being shunted around from one department to another without treatment for more than three hours.Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Adityanath ordered the suspension of the Chief Medical Superintendent (CMS) of the men’s wing of the Maharana Pratap District Hospital, Bareilly, K.S. Gupta on charges of “negligence of duty.”Departmental proceeding would also be initiated against CMS of the women’s wing Alka Sharma.The girl child, believed to be a few days old, was brought to the men’s wing on Wednesday, where sufficient paediatricians were available, but instead of providing necessary treatment to the child, his family was sent to the women’s wing.However, the CMS of the women’s wing referred the child back to the men’s wing.Sushma Devi, the grandmother of the infant, said they were made to run around for more than three hours when they tried to get the child admitted. Born in a private hospital, the child was brought to the district hospital after it developed breathing complications, reports said.“When we went to the doctor (at the men’s wing) he asked us to take the child to the women’s ward. And when we did, they told us that those who filled the form will do the admission. The second time we went there (men’s ward), they said no bed is vacant,” said Ms. Devi.When the family again took the child to the women’s wing, the infant died, she said.The doctors allegedly engaged in a blame game after the incident.Acting against the doctors, Mr. Adityanath tweeted, “any insensitivity by Govt. officials will not be tolerated.”last_img read more
