Limerick artists angered over makeup of new cultural committee

PLAN Chairman Keith Bogue.JUST weeks after Limerick City and County councillors voted to establish the country’s first council committee entirely dedicated to culture, local artists are claiming that the local authority has failed to ensure that people working in the cultural community are represented on the new group.The Professional Limerick Artists Network (PLAN) and Limerick Arts and Cultural Exchange (LACE) are angered by what they see as a row-back on plans to give them a voice on the new culture Strategic Policy Committee (SPC).Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The groups claim they were given to believe there would be two seats each on the committee for PLAN and LACE, as the organised representatives of people involved in arts and culture in the city and county.But the local authority denies ever promising the four seats and says that the two organisations will have to go through the Public Private Network system to gain representation.“Two representatives each was the deal and now they have gone back on that. There seems to be a strong reluctance on the council executive to have anything directly to do with the arts committees,” said Keith Bogue, chairperson of PLAN.Mr Bogue fears that the representation for arts and culture groups, which they believe was agreed, is now far from secure.“Anyone from haberdashers to dentists can apply through the PPN system. We were the people doing the work all along. We were the people giving our time and expertise for free to try to advise the council when they were paying enormous amounts of money to outside consultant for advice.Now they’re changing the goalposts and we’re being pushed aside. A deal is a deal and they’ve gone back on it,” he declared.Sectoral interests on the council’s existing SPCs are chosen from membership of the PPN and the council says this is the appropriate way for PLAN and LACE to get a voice on the new committee.A statement on behalf of the council said: “It is incorrect and misleading to say that the two groups are being sidelined.  “The SPC system is intended to give councillors and relevant sectoral interests an opportunity for full involvement in the policy making process from the early stages.“The setting up of a Culture SPC is being done in accordance with the regulations and guidelines set down by the government. One of the guidelines indicates that sectoral interests are nominated through the Public Participation Network (PPN).“This process was indicated to the PLAN and LACE groups via email in which they were encouraged to register with the PPN. At a previous working group meeting, the issue of membership of the SPC was raised.  Both PLAN and LACE were told that the issue would be looked in to”.However, Solidarity Party councillor Cian Prendiville believes there is another way.“I understand that the argument is being made that the SPC guidelines do not allow this, however no section of the guidelines was quoted to back up this assertion. Having read through the guidelines, I believe that it is possible,” he said. Visit the Limerick Post Arts section to read more stories involving Limerick artists.center_img Calling Limerick’s Creative Kids!

The Single Bench of Justice Prathiba M Singh has issued notice to the Delhi University to submit a counter affidavit by July 30. The order has come in ongoing matter on Anupam & Ors v. Union of India wherein the Petitioners have asked for the cancellation of the online OBE. In place of the OBE, the Petitioners have suggested evaluations based on internal assessment, take-home assignments, presentations and projects, and performance in past semesters. In today’s proceedings, the Delhi University informed the court that the question papers for the online OBE will be sent to the email ID of the candidate. In addition to this, a consolidated list of participating colleges have been published along with the contact details and email IDs of concerned persons in each of these colleges who will address the grievances faced by the students while taking the exams, if any. ‘If a student is unable to upload the answer sheet on the centralised portal, the same can be mailed to the concerned College also’, Professor Vinay Gupta, Dean of Examinations, submitted. The Information Technology department of the University informed the court that services of a cloud empanelled with the Ministry of the Electronics and Information Technology has been engaged to store the data the will be generated through the online exams. The court was also informed that a committee of 4 members will also be constituted post the examinations to look into the glitches faced by students while taking the online exams. This committee, which will have 4 academicians as its members, will look into the grievances of the students and would respond to the same within 5 days. In addition to this, the court was informed by the Secretary of Common Service Centres Academy (CSC) that the Delhi University has not provided it with the list of students who will be appearing for the online exams.DU: Since our own server was not enough to hold the traffic, we decided to use a cloud server empanelled by the Ministry of [email protected] #UGC #Covid_19— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) July 27, 2020Senior Advocate Saurav Datta, who appeared for the Delhi University informed the court that the services of the CSCs have only been engaged for conducting the final exams and not the mock tests. Showing concerns regarding this fact, the court said: ‘How do you expect the students who are completely dependent on the services of CSCs to familiarise themselves with the format of the exams when the CSCs are not engaged for conducting mock tests?’ The Delhi University, however, informed the court that at this stage the list of students who are willing to engage the services of the CSCs cannot be provided. ‘You should’ve done this exercise at the time of filling up of examination forms itself’, the court remarked. During the course of the proceedings, the concerns were also raised regarding the functioning of the CSCs across the country. One of the Petitioners informed the court that a total of 12,000 CSCs are not even operational. On this query, CSC Academy informed the court that the guidelines of the Ministry of Home Affairs had exempted the CSCs from the lockdown subject to the decisions of the local administration. ‘However, in most of the States, the local administration has not allowed the CSCs to operate’, CSC Academy submitted. At this stage, the court asked the CSC Academy to submit a detailed report on the functioning of the CSC centres across the country.

The high latitude convection response to an interval of substorm activity

first_imgOn 17 March 1991, five clear substorm onsets/intensifications took place within a three hour interval. During this interval ground-based data from the EISCAT incoherent scatter radar, a digital CCD all sky camera, and an extensive array of magnetometers were available, in addition to data from the CRRES and DMSP spacecraft, whose footprints passed over Scandinavia very close to most of the ground-based instrumentation. This interval of substorm activity has been interpreted as being in support of a near-Earth current disruption model of substorm onset. In the present study the ionospheric convection response, observed some four hours to the west in MLT by the Halley HF radar in Antarctica, is related to the growth, expansion and recovery phases of two of the substorm onsets/expansions observed in the Northern Hemisphere. Bursts of ionospheric flow and motion of the convection reversal boundary (CRB) are observed at Halley in response to the substorm activity and changes in the IMF. The delay between the substorm expansion phase onset and the response in the CRB location is dependent on the local time separation from, and latitude of, the initial substorm onset region. These results are interpreted in terms of a synthesis of the very near-Earth current disruption model and the near-Earth neutral line model of substorm onset.last_img read more

Tories appeal for Cabinet inquiry into Oxford don

first_imgA Conservative MP has called for an Oxford don to be investigated by the Cabinet Office after he was accused in a leaked letter of providing direct political support to Gordon Brown.Professor Iain McLean, a Professor of Politics at Nuffield College, is alleged to have provided political support to the Chancellor’s team after benefiting from Treasury and government contracts.In a letter sent to Cabinet Secretary Sir Gus O’Donnell last Thursday and obtained by Cherwell, Shadow Transport Secretary Chris Grayling raises concerns about McLean’s actions prior to Brown’s campaign for the leadership of the Labour Party.”My most serious area of concern is that some individuals and organisations who have provided the Chancellor and other Treasury Ministers with pro-bono or discounted support for their political activities have also been beneficiaries of contracts from the Treasury under the Chancellor’s leadership and also from other Government Departments,” he wrote.The call for an inquiry comes after the Electoral Commission revealed that Gordon Brown received over £110,000 in donations for his leadership campaign, many from donors who had been appointed to key government posts.McLean states in his CV that he was a Specialist Adviser to the House of Commons Treasury Committee from 2002 to 2005. His research into public expenditure allocation was “highly commended by HM Treasury” in Brown’s 2004 Budget report.In October 2004 McLean attended a meeting of Wakefield City Council where he voiced objections to the Boundary Commission’s proposed changes to constituency sizes. The proposals would have abolished the constituency of Normanton, current seat for Economic Secretary to the Treasury Ed Balls MP. Before becoming an MP, Balls served as chief economic adviser to the Treasury from 1999 to 2004, a role in which he was once described as the most powerful unelected person in Britain. In Grayling’s letter to the Cabinet Secretary he questioned McLean’s objections to the proposed boundary changes. “I would like you to investigate whether this also classifies as providing political support to the Chancellor’s team, and investigate whether the correct competitive tendering processes were followed for his government work,” he wrote.”Given the obvious public interest in this issue and the importance of upholding the highest standards of transparency in this leadership campaign, [I am] placing this letter in the public domain and would request that you give this matter your urgent attention.”Grayling attacked what he described as “cronyism” between Brown and his political allies. “Gordon Brown says he wants to put the trust back into British politics. Yet it appears that people close to him politically have been doing paid work for the Treasury and for other Government Departments while he has been Chancellor. If it’s true, this is a completely unacceptable situation, and there needs to be a proper investigation into what has happened,” he said.”Government Ministers have a duty to be entirely impartial when it comes to spending taxpayers’ money, and it is completely unacceptable to put your political friends onto the payroll. It’s obvious that the culture of cronyism that existed under Tony Blair is going to carry on under Gordon Brown. But the Chancellor seems to be taking things to new depths.”Professor McLean denied all of Grayling’s accusations and said they did not constitute political support as he was acting in a professional capacity. “I didn’t provide direct political support to Ed Balls. I was a consultant to Wakefield City Council, as Mr Grayling would have found out if he had consulted them, or me. My financial terms for acting as an expert witness were my standard terms, as agreed with other local authorities in the Fourth and Fifth General Reviews of the Parliamentary Boundary Commission for England.”All my work for HM Treasury has been unpaid. The only paid contract involving the Treasury was for a report on which I was principal instigator on ‘Investigating the flow of domestic and European public expenditure into the English regions’, which reported in 2003. It was not commissioned by the Treasury but by John Prescott’s department, then called the ODPM. I tendered successfully for it in an open competition,” he added.Andrew Smith, MP for Oxford East, attacked the Conservative Party for encouraging an investigation into Professor McLean without proper consideration. “This is the politics of smear and innuendo,” he said. “It shows how desperate the Tories are to try and undermine Gordon Brown. Their attempt to drag Professor McLean’s name through the mud is utterly contemptible and they should apologise to him. This will do the Tories nothing but harm among fair-minded students and academics in Oxford.”A spokesperson for the Cabinet Office said they were unable to confirm whether an investigation would be officially launched.last_img read more

“Living Outside the Box”

first_img“LIVING OUTSIDE THE BOX”by JOE WALLACEExcerpt from Chapter 5: Recognizing and Connecting the DotsJoe Wallace is the author of the forthcoming book called Living Outside the Box that took its inspiration from a series of situations where thinking outside the box never lead to action.Finally, in a moment of frustration, Joe uttered the words “what good does it do to think outside the box if you don’t have the courage to live outside the box?”   The title and the idea of this book were born with that statement.Perhaps one of the most referred-to clichés among the gathering class is the one about how important it is to be able to connect the dots. While connections are a very important activity when it comes to team- building and awareness, without the knowledge of what you need to connect, these gatherings are of little consequence when it comes to innovation or problem solving. The inconvenient reality about people who only talk about connecting the dots is that many of them wouldn’t be able to recognize a “dot” if it was served to them alongside their dinner.In this context, dots refer to things of potential significance. Going back to the earlier example of the invention of the chariot, the things of potential significance (the dots) were the wheel and the box.  It took 300 years of making pottery on wheels, and storing pottery along with other items of value in boxes, for someone to connect the two as a potential facilitator of transportation. Attaching the wheels to the box in a way that did not restrict rotation was the breakthrough. Whomever did that became the inventor of the axle before intellectual property was protected or even considered valuable. Voila! At that moment some ancient form of a little red wagon was invented.The original handle was in all likelihood the human arm but after a decade of splinters and callouses the handle was added to the miracle of the wheel-and-box combination.  The iterations continued, and eventually the wheels and box were strong enough to hold a human, and a horse was added. Since that day some 3,200 years ago we have had rolling boxes that transport us from one place to another. Without that early exercise of recognizing the dots and connecting them, we may still be walking from one place to another.Author Bio:Joe Wallace is CEO and Chief Innovation Officer of the Coachella Valley Economic Partnership that operates the Palm Springs Innovation Hub where he also serves as the founding Managing Director. Wallace entered the world of mentoring entrepreneurs and businesses serving as the founding President and CEO of the Growth Alliance for Greater Evansville and Innovation Pointe where entrepreneurship was the prime focus.Joe’s work has been honored with the CSU San Bernardino’s Spirit of the Entrepreneur Award, the R & D Top 100 Award, the Clean Air Award, and the Indiana University Growth 100 Award along with many others.  Over his career, Joe has been recognized as a creative leader who is not afraid to live his life outside the box.Wallace was graduated from Stanford University with an MS in Mechanical Engineering and has earned technical certifications from both Harvard and MIT. With over 10 start-up businesses and experience mentoring over 100 others, Joe enjoys a reputation of a person with a depth of technical knowledge who applies common sense solutions that work to business and life.EDITORS NOTE:   We highly recommend if your a CEO of a developing corporation this book is a must read for you middle and upper echelon management team!Joe’s book is extremely insightful and intellectually based.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
