Limerick Council is bee-ing friendly

first_imgEmail Advertisement Linkedin Twitter NewsEnvironmentLimerick Council is bee-ing friendlyBy Bernie English – March 22, 2019 1583 Print O’Donnell Welcomes Major Enhancement Works for Castletroy Neighbourhood Park Limerick on Covid watch list Mayor of Limerick City and County, James Collins with Michael Sheehan, LCCC Parks Department, Sharon Lynch, LCCC Environmental Technican and Anne Goggin, LCCC Senior Executive Engineer.PIcture: Keith WisemanTHE HUMBLE dandelion is an annoying weed to some gardeners but if you’re a bee it’s spring gold.And Limerick City and County Council is delaying the start of its annual grass-cutting programme in certain areas to let the dandelions and other wild flowers flourish and help give bees and other pollinators an early food source.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The Council signed a framework agreement with the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan to formalise its long term commitment to support pollinators in Limerick.The plan is a cross-sector initiative, led by the National Biodiversity Data Centre, with local authorities, farmers, businesses, schools and local communities to support pollinators such as bees.Ireland depends on pollinating insects to pollinate crops, fruits and vegetables — but many pollinators are now threatened with extinction.Last summer, Limerick City and County Council began implementing the plan by leaving three pilot areas of public land develop into Wild Flower meadows at Corbally Meadows, Childers Road and College Park.The species diversity in these areas was studied by Dr Tom Harrington, botanist and all were found to have a range of plants of value to pollinators, in particular at Corbally Meadows.In addition to the wild flower meadows, grass cutting will be delayed in a number of public areas to allow the dandelions to flower.These include Curraghgower Park, Arthur’s Quay Park and part of Mungret Park.Mayor of Limerick, Cllr James Collins said: “It is very important that we care for our environment.  Scientists have shown that bees are crucial to maintaining crops.  They are the world’s most important pollinator of food crops. It is estimated that one third of the food that we consume each day relies on pollination mainly by bees, but also by other insects, birds and bats.”Limerick City and County Council has become one of the first local authorities in Ireland to officially partner with All-Ireland Pollinator Plan, leading the way in ‘pollinator protection.Michael Sheehan of the Council Parks Supervisor said: “There’s huge interest from the public in pollinators and an awareness that we have to take action now.  The strength of the Pollinator Plan is its evidence-based guidelines which give clear advice on how each sector can improve their land for pollinators.”Have your say by using #BeeFriendlyLimerick on Twitter.

HUD received the award for its Office of Community Planning and Development’s (CPD) modernized Grants Dashboard.Steven W. Rawlinson, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Economic Development for CPD, and Maribel Gatica, Advisor to the Assistant Secretary for CPD, received the award on behalf of HUD at MicroStrategy’s Federal IT Summit in Washington, D.C.“It is a great honor to receive MicroStrategy’s 2019 Federal IT Innovation Award. We have made it a priority to modernize our systems to improve the way HUD does business,” said Secretary Ben Carson. “We still have work to do until all of HUD’s systems are up to date, but this award shows that our efforts are paying dividends and the results have made HUD a stronger, more nimble agency.”CPD’s Dashboard provides funding information for each city and state that receives CPD program funds, in a place-based format. The Dashboard details the size of each grant received over the past several years, as well as the total amount of funds currently available to be spent on affordable housing and community and economic development activities. HUD notes that before modernizing the Grants Dashboard, it relied on manual reports that could not efficiently drive critical decisions or provide oversight into all grant programs.“We are incredibly proud to recognize the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development with the 2019 Federal IT Innovation Award for their exemplary use of analytics to achieve significant ROI and operational efficiencies,” said Michael J. Saylor, CEO,  MicroStrategy Incorporated. “Their CPD Grants Dashboard showcases an innovative enterprise analytics solution while serving as a blueprint for digital transformation initiatives across the federal government.”Secretary Carson discussed technology development in the housing industry at HUD’s “Innovative Housing Showcase,” co-hosted by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). “It’s important we highlight these new building technologies that are answering the call for more affordable, durable housing options for families across America,” said Secretary Carson.

Simeone: Jan Oblak is our Lionel Messi after UCL heroics

first_img “But in Oblak we have the best goalkeeper in the world, that is true.” “He is as important to us, as Messi is to Barcelona.”Advertisement Read Also: Liverpool crash out of Champions League, Atletico advance to quarters The attention was shone on opposite number Adrian in extra time, as his error allowed Llorente to score Atletico Madrid’s first goal. But Oblak has offered a timely reminder of his ranking as one of the world’s finest keepers, to push Atletico into the quarter finals. Simeone will now wait to see who Atletico Madrid are paired with in the last eight, with Atalanta, RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain already through.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has lauded goalkeeper Jan Oblak following his outstanding display in their 3-2 Champions Legaue win at Liverpool. The Slovenian international made save after save to keep the Premier League side at bay at Anfield, and keep the visitors in the game at Anfield. Extra time goals from Marcos Llorente and Alvaro Morata secured Atletico’s dramatic passage into the last eight, but Simeone was clear on who the hero was against Jurgen Klopp’s side. “He (Oblak) is as important as the others, as much as Savic, Lodi, Felipe, Felix,” he told a post match interview with Marca.

Volleyball falls to UCSB, remains winless

first_imgIn their 2016 home opener, the No. 15 Trojans played a close match against the No. 9 UCSB Gauchos. but lost in four sets, 22-25, 25-23, 22-25 and 23-25.“I thought we finally put together some good stretches of volleyball, but we still have to be able to perform at every point from beginning to end,” said head coach Jeff Nygard.In the first set, the Trojans fell behind 15-12 before working it back to 17-17 after a Tommy Leonard kill. Although he and outside hitter Lucas Yoder would both finish with four kills in the set, the momentum swung back to the Gauchos who would close out 25-22.In the second set, despite dismal Gaucho hitting at .094, USC got off to an equally slow start and took a timeout to regroup after falling behind 9-6. Upon returning to the court, the Trojans fought for a 20-19 lead before a Gauchos’ timeout. Subsequently, four critical Gaucho errors down the stretch cost them the set which went to the Trojans, 25-23.In the middle of the third set, Lucas Yoder caught fire, recording seven kills in the next sixteen match points. His effort did not keep the Trojans ahead as UCSB hit .500 in the set with 20 kills, including eight from junior opposite Matt Marsh whose impressive individual effort sparked a 10-7 Gaucho run to win the set 25-22.Captain and senior outside hitter Alex Slaught liked the way his team played.“If anything, we just need to close games,” he said.Slaught pointed out that the Trojans “started playing a little hesitant in the long rallies” that gave the Gauchos unstoppable momentum in the fourth.Though the Men of Troy opened the fourth fearlessly with an early 9-6 run, the Gauchos responded with a 5-1 run and never looked back, committing zero attack errors the rest of the way to close out the fourth and final set 25-23.The Trojans fell behind at one point in all four sets and blew a five-point lead in the fourth, but Nygaard remains “encouraged by the fact that our guys are putting it together.”One sign of this improvement was Josh Kirchner’s breakout performance highlighted by eight kills and a .571 hitting percentage. His game is a sign that the team is maturing incredibly quickly in the early season, and as Nygaard said, “raising the expectations has been part of what we’ve been doing.”Saturday night the Trojans will need to defy expectations as they face crosstown rival UCLA for the first time since clinching an MPSF Tourney berth against them with a five-set victory at the Galen Center late last season. At that time, the Trojans were ranked No. 9 nationally and the Bruins were at No. 12, and while USC would finish the year at 19-9, UCLA would slide below .500 at 13-14.This year, however, the table has turned. USC is off to a poor start while UCLA has ascended to No. 1 in the nation with a perfect 6-0 record including quality wins versus both Ohio St. and Penn St., top ten programs that conquered the Trojans early in January.Indeed, the Trojans’ tumultuous start has left many questions unanswered. Understandably, they have struggled to fill the void left by graduating senior setter Micah Christenson, a two-time First-Team All-American, three-year team captain, and 4-year starter.For sophomore setter Jack Yoder, the team is generating energy as a unit.“We’re all super excited to get into Westwood and play [the Bruins],” Yoder said. “We have a lot to prove and this is a great opportunity for us.”And for junior libero Vinnie Rios the team carries over enough experience from previous years to feel “comfortable” at Pauley.“We’ve been playing against these guys for years now, so there’s nothing from this team we haven’t seen,” Rios said. “Rankings aside, we know what we have to do to win, so it’s just [a matter of] going and getting the job done.”Nygaard, who was a star player for the Bruins, had one thing to say about returning to Pauley Pavilion.“When I was there, my team learned how to win, and we intend to do the same,” Nygaard said.last_img read more

Opponent preview: What to know about North Carolina State

first_img Published on February 11, 2020 at 12:25 am Contact Michael: [email protected] | @MikeJMcCleary Syracuse (14-9, 7-5 Atlantic Coast) looks to create another win-streak in a home matchup with North Carolina State (15-8, 6-6) Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Carrier Dome. The Orange bounced back after two-straight losses with a win over Wake Forest last Saturday that came courtesy of a game-winning Brycen Goodine layup.Here’s what to know about NC State ahead of its game against Syracuse.All-time series: Syracuse leads 7-5Last time they played: North Carolina State dominated the Orange 73-58 on Feb. 13, 2019. Braxton Beverly led NC State in scoring with 21 points, and Frank Howard matched that point total for Syracuse. But the Orange couldn’t overcome an off-night from Tyus Battle, who shot 33% and scored just seven points.The NC State report: The Wolfpack, who started the season strong and firmly placed themselves around the top of the ACC, fell off a little bit recently and now sit behind SU in the conference standings. Though the Wolfpack suffered three-straight losses recently, a balanced scoring approach keeps them a threat in any game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textC.J. Bryce and Markell Johnson have nearly identical scoring averages to lead NC State, and Johnson is its top distributor as well. This allows NC State to be one of the most efficient offenses in the nation with a 110.2 adjusted efficiency per KenPom. It’ll play clean basketball and score efficiently.How Syracuse beats the Wolfpack: Syracuse needs its offense to reemerge. Though Syracuse has not played poorly lately, it could use a big performance to stave off a North Carolina State team that during its best stretches of the season steadily scored between 65 and 77 points. Syracuse has much more firepower and if its shooters get hot, that could be too much for the Wolfpack to handle.Stat to know: 7.5 — NC State’s non-steal turnover percentage, one of the 15 lowest rates in the country. The Wolfpack are crisp with their passing and communication.KenPom odds: The Orange have a 65% chance of winning the game with a final score of 77-72, per KenPom.Player to watch: Markell Johnson, No. 11, guardJohnson has the ability to score at a high level — evident by a 27-point performance earlier in the year — and also has 11 seven-plus assist performances to his credit this year. He’s a rare player that can damage SU from anywhere, and will have to put on a solid performance for NC State to win. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Cavani, Neymar on same wavelength as PSG target streak

first_img0Shares0000Edinson Cavani and Neymar talk tactics during PSG’s win at Rennes last weekend © AFP/File / JEAN-FRANCOIS MONIERPARIS, France, Sep 28 – Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel says he has done nothing special to improve the relationship between star forwards Neymar and Edinson Cavani, despite the pair playing a key role in helping the French champions enjoy their best ever start to a season.Cavani scored twice and won a penalty that was converted by Neymar as PSG came from behind to beat Reims 4-1 on Wednesday, making it seven wins from seven games this season. Neymar’s first season in Paris following his world record transfer from Barcelona was brought to a premature end by a foot injury. But before that there were concerns the Brazilian had a frosty relationship with Cavani, with the duo notably bickering over penalty-taking duties.There were no such problems on Wednesday, as the pair led PSG to another victory in the absence of the suspended Kylian Mbappe.“I haven’t done anything special. It is important that they exchange with one another,” said Tuchel, whose team are already eight points clear at the top of Ligue 1.“They play in the same team don’t they? I haven’t done anything. They are grown ups and, above all, they are pros.“I also get the feeling that along with Kylian Mbappe and Angel (Di Maria) they are a quartet who want to win trophies and improve together.”PSG go to Nice on Saturday looking for an eighth win out of eight in the league — if they do that they will match the best ever start to a season by any French club, set by Olympique Lillois in 1936.– Mbappe back –The good news for Tuchel is that Mbappe can return having completed his three-match ban, and the France star will surely feature ahead of next Wednesday’s Champions League meeting with Red Star Belgrade.PSG need a positive result in Europe after losing away to Liverpool in their opening group outing, but first they face Patrick Vieira’s Nice, who have won three of their last four matches, and can welcome back Mario Balotelli after he missed the midweek victory at Nantes.“I know what I can get out of Mario at the moment and I am going to use him. He can maybe last an hour, or 80 minutes. The important thing is that he is ready to help the team,” said Vieira.Lyon, Marseille and Lille are all eight points off top spot, and Lyon entertain a Nantes side whose Portuguese coach Miguel Cardoso is reported to be on the verge of the sack after a poor start to the season.Nicolas Pepe could not prevent Lille from losing at Bordeaux in midweek © AFP/File / NICOLAS TUCATMeanwhile, Marseille go to Lille after beating Strasbourg 3-2 in midweek thanks to Valere Germain’s stoppage-time goal.Monaco visit Saint-Etienne on Friday looking for a first win since the opening weekend of the season.Player to watch: Nicolas PepeLille must be delighted that the 23-year-old Ivory Coast international forward turned down the chance to move away from the club in the summer transfer window. The financially troubled northern side may have needed the money, but keeping Pepe gives them a much better chance of remaining up towards the top of the table.He was unable to prevent Christophe Galtier’s side from losing at Bordeaux in midweek, but he has four goals this season and will be hoping to fire Lille to a fourth win from four home games when they host Marseille.FixturesFridaySaint-Etienne v Monaco (9:45pm)SaturdayNice v Paris Saint-Germain (6:15pm), Angers v Guingamp, Caen v Amiens, Lyon v Nantes, Reims v Bordeaux, Strasbourg v Dijon (all 9pm)SundayRennes v Toulouse (4pm), Montpellier v Nimes (6pm), Lille v Marseille (10pm)0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
