first_imgA festival and events organiser punched a taxi-driver in the face and then wrestled a female Garda who tried to arrest him in a row over the fare.Adam Laverty, aged, 27, appeared before Letterkenny District Court following the incident on December 20th, 2018. Laverty and a friend had hailed the taxi in Letterkenny and asked to go to Ballybofey and was told by the taxi-driver that the fare would be €30 which they paid.However, half-way to Balybofey the pair decided they wanted to go to Clady in Co Tyrone but the driver refused and said he was letting the men out.The men claimed they were being left in the middle of nowhere, hadn’t got value for their €30 and a row started.Solicitor for Laverty, of Drumboe Avenue, Stranorlar, Mr Frank Dorrian, said the men felt aggrieved and had been drinking.He also revealed how one of the men said “We could kill you here right now.”The taxi-driver then called Gardai to the scene and the matter became more enflamed.Laverty became aggressive and wrestled a female Garda against the patrol car before he had to be pepper-sprayed to be brought under control.Mr Dorrian said his client had no previous convictions and said he was a successful events organiser.Judge Paul Kelly said he took a very poor view of somebody who attacked somebody else while they were going about their duty.He ordered Laverty to pay €200 compensation to the taxi-driver and also make a further donation of €200 to the Garda Benevolent Fund.Festival organiser to pay compo after punching taxi-driver in face was last modified: July 23rd, 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:Adam Laffertyfestival organiserGardaipunchStranorlartaxi-driverlast_img read more

first_imgA well-placed government source leaked ReadWrite this draft memorandum from the White House.*Announcing Citizenship 2.0—The Same Civil Rights You Love, But Better!We’re super excited to announce Citizenship 2.0—now enhanced with extra monitoring for your safety and security!We know that many people have enjoyed the old version of American citizenship. But as with any product, times change and require adaptation and upgrades to stay current.Your old freedoms were delivered in conventional ways. Now you can get just the freedom you need, when you need it. It’s freedom as a service. It’s Citizenship 2.0. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Civil Liberties#Government#nsa#Prism#satire#spying A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting New And Improved!In recent years, this administration has learned a lot from Silicon Valley—and we’re not just talking about the communications we’ve been intercepting for years from some of the biggest Internet companies. We’ve been very interested in how innovative business models can be applied to government.In particular, the freemium style of product has proven very compelling, where most users get a basic service for free and others pay to get an enhanced version.Of course, as taxpayers, you’re already paying the government to provide services. But our expert governance innovators—”governovators,” we call them—have figured out a way to apply this model to the rights you enjoy as a citizen.Get excited, people—freedom is no longer free. It’s freemium!Big Government, Big Data, Big Changes!You may ask, what’s enabling this move? You may have read something about PRISM.PRISM doesn’t exist, of course. But let’s say we had a secret program to monitor all Internet communications with the tacit cooperation or nonresistance of major tech companies. For argument’s sake. If something like that existed, that would merely be a back-end foundation for the front-end interface improvements to your government that really matter. That’s Citizenship 2.0.Here’s what you’re going to get:Unlimited storage for all your communications. You won’t have access to them—but we will. And that’s what matters. If you or your parents come from a foreign country, or you just have a funny-sounding name, or you ever Googled the name of a political organization, you also get extra backups—for free!In-app purchases. Benjamin Franklin once said, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” First of all, that was, like, soooo three centuries ago. Second, what’s with the crazy capitalization? Anyway, we have all this new technology that’s a complete game-changer. With Citizenship 2.0, you don’t have to surrender your essential liberty up front. You can trade little bits of it as you go, for all the temporary safety you want!Access to your leaders. We’re all about transparency—at least when it comes to what you’re doing online. Thanks to Citizenship 2.0, what you do online might end up in a report that the president himself reads! Isn’t that cool? Note: If you prefer the old version of citizenship, you can opt out of these changes and stick to the original version guaranteed by the Bill of Rights by marching, protesting, or writing your Congressman. But let’s get real—no one’s going to bother to do that.*We’re kidding. We hope. owen thomas Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

first_img The Caribbean Maritime University (CMU) is reporting positive results from the trials of the prototype of its ocean-cleaning device dubbed ‘Jambin’. “It is a reinforced household bin; a floating device, which is attached to a dock or jetty in the sea around the CMU,” explained Vice President of Global Affairs and Executive Director of the Blue Economy centre, Ambassador Joachim Schmillen. An innovation out of the CMU’s recently established Centre for Blue Economy and Innovation, the device is designed to collect debris from the sea. The Caribbean Maritime University (CMU) is reporting positive results from the trials of the prototype of its ocean-cleaning device dubbed ‘Jambin’.An innovation out of the CMU’s recently established Centre for Blue Economy and Innovation, the device is designed to collect debris from the sea.“It is a reinforced household bin; a floating device, which is attached to a dock or jetty in the sea around the CMU,” explained Vice President of Global Affairs and Executive Director of the Blue Economy centre, Ambassador Joachim Schmillen.“In our case, we are using an air pump and PVC pipes to produce a suction effect, so that every piece of floating debris… around the waste bin will be sucked in,” he said.The bin is partially submerged and contains a mesh to catch debris, which can then be emptied once full.On February 22, in a test of the efficacy of the air pump to produce sufficient eddy to pull water into the bin, the Jambin prototype caught its first piece of debris.Ambassador Schmillen told JIS News that “on that day, we had very harsh wind conditions and high waves around the CMU and in the marina (Royal Jamaica Yacht Club) but the prototype sucked in the debris against the conditions”.“The challenge of wind and waves is not so difficult. It is not a technical problem in itself; it is because of the resistance level of the material. The biggest challenge we have at the moment is finding the material that can, for a long time, withstand the harsh conditions of the sea. We would like to use material like fibreglass to construct a more resistant waste bin,” he said.The Jambin technology was adapted from the ‘Seabin’ invented in New Zealand to remove debris, particularly plastic bottles, from the sea.Mr. Ambassador Schmillen noted, however, that the local innovation goes further.“The original ‘Seabin’ uses a water pump, but we are using an air pump because we would also like to use Jambin in our oyster project later. The air pump is producing something called nanobubbles, which are enriching the water around it with oxygen, and this stimulates sea life,” he explained.More than 30,000 oysters will be used to clean and improve the water quality of the Kingston Harbour under a pilot project being undertaken by the CMU Centre for Blue Economy and Innovation.Oysters are natural purifiers and a single adult oyster can cleanse about 50 gallons of water per day.Since 2014, oysters have been employed to rebuild oyster reefs in the waters surrounding New York City.
