Forklift driven during trespassing incident in Twin Towns

first_img Pinterest Twitter Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Forklift driven during trespassing incident in Twin Towns Pinterest Gardaí are seeking information in relation to a trespassing incident that occurred at a major building site in Millbrae, Stranorlar.The incident is said to have happened between Monday, March 1st at 5.30pm and Tuesday March 2nd at 7am.A forklift was driven around the building site at some stage between those times but was not damaged.It is unknown as of yet whether entry was gained by a person or a group of people.CCTV will be viewed and investigations will continue.Gardai are eager to establish what occurred as a major construction is underway at the site in question and it could prove very dangerous for people to be present on the site unlawfully.There was no damage caused and nothing was stolen but Gardai are keen to prevent this occurring again as sites such as these are not safe places to be without the proper safety training and knowledge and the last thing we want is a tragedy.If anybody observed anyone in or around the site between those times, please call Gardaí in Letterkenny.

Observed vulnerability of Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf to wind-driven inflow of warm deep water

first_imgThe average rate of melting at the base of the large Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf in the southern Weddell Sea is currently low, but projected to increase dramatically within the next century. In a model study, melt rates increase as changing ice conditions cause a redirection of a coastal current, bringing warm water of open ocean origin through the Filchner Depression and into the Filchner Ice Shelf cavity. Here we present observations from near Filchner Ice Shelf and from the Filchner Depression, which show that pulses of warm water already arrive as far south as the ice front. This southward heat transport follows the eastern flank of the Filchner Depression and is found to be directly linked to the strength of a wind-driven coastal current. Our observations emphasize the potential sensitivity of Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf melt rates to changes in wind forcing.last_img read more

Balliol drops black tie

first_imgThe Balliol Summer Event took place last Saturday, but the traditional Oxford black tie was conspicuously lacking. Balliol’s answer to the college ball attracted 600 people, but no dress code at all. The evening was an opportunity for Balliol to showcase its distinct identity, and its informality has been described as “typically lefty.” The main attraction was the presence of DJ Yoda, who is well known in British hip-hop. DJ Yoda, having attended several Oxford college black tie occasions, described the Balliol Summer Event as a “ghetto ball”.ARCHIVE: 2nd week TT 2004last_img

Ellis Juvenile Contender Ebben Has Owner On Cloud Nine

first_imgFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare You will know by the screaming if the winner of Sunday’s $75,000 Ellis Park Juvenile is Ebben. On the other hand, you might hear that same raucous cheering even if the 2-year-old gelding is second or third. Ebben is one of the first yearlings purchased by Sam Aguiar. The Louisville attorney was part of the Pocket Aces syndicate and decided to start his own stable with Churchill Downs-based trainer Steve Margolis. Ebben was third at 14-1 odds June 28 at Churchill, a race won by a really nice horse in Hollywood Star, second in the recent Saratoga Special. Ebben then won a maiden race at Indiana Grand to earn his shot at the seven-furlong Juvenile.“If we’ve got a horse who can be competitive out there and just not finish in the bottom, then we know we’ve got a 2-year-old that has some potential,” Aguiar said by phone. “If we were to finish fourth or better tomorrow, even if we don’t win, you’ll probably think that we won. The first race when we finished third, I had to eventually tell my buddies that we needed to get away so the people could get in the winner’s circle. Because we’d thought we’d just won the Kentucky Derby, and we finished third in a maiden special weight.”Aguiar, whom you’ll see referred to in his ads by his first name Craig, gave friends in his law office small pieces of the horse.“It’s probably the worst thing that could happen: We’re 1 for 1 right now with a horse,” he said with a laugh. “It would be like if I went in front of a jury after six months of practicing law, didn’t know what I was doing and thought I was better than I was, and got this huge verdict. It’s the same thing here, like a false sense of security the way you think you know what you’re doing, when really it was probably nothing more than a lot of luck.“Who knows how he’ll do tomorrow? But the fact that as a first-time starter he went out and had the lead until the last sixteenth against that $600,000 Dale Romans horse, then came right back and went eight-wide into the stretch (at Indiana), thought he didn’t have a chance and ran right past everybody — it’s pretty cool.”Ebben, who will be ridden by Brian Hernandez Jr., is 10-1 in a field of 12 that includes 8-5 favorite Ten City, the Bashford Manor winner.“I think you’ve got what may be the best 2-year-old in the country in Ten City,” Aguiar said. “Then you’ve got the other Romans horse, Dak Attack, and then it’s wide-open underneath that. I think you’re going to get disgustingly good prices on the rest of the field. This Ten City horse looks like he might be something special. So I like it. I like that we get to run a horse against that caliber and see where our horse stands. The fact is, we bought our horse for $25,000. The fact that he’s even getting to start (Sunday) is freaking awesome. It is so cool. If he would hit the board, we’d be on Cloud Nine.” Ebben got his name because Aguiar’s young son Owen couldn’t correctly pronounce older brother Evan’s name.“Owen would say, ‘I want to see Ebben,’” the lawyer said. “I thought it was the cutest thing. I got to thinking that Owen was going to learn to pronounce his v’s one day and wasn’t going to call his brother Ebben forever. I figured if I had a horse named Ebben, it would be that good, adorable reminder.”Marquee Cal Gal wins turf debut in Saturday allowance featureTrainer Phil Sims and owner-breeder David Jacobs have long wanted to get Marquee Cal Gal in a turf race. That opportunity happened in Saturday’s $43,000 open allowance race, in which the 6-year-old mare took the lead with an eighth-mile to go to beat favored Justa Lady by a length. Marquee Cal Gal covered 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:01.17 under Jack Gilligan, the last sixteenth-mile in an excellent 5.94 seconds. She paid $15.80 as the fourth choice in the field of seven. Finishing another 1 1/4 lengths back in third was the 4-year-old Marquee Miss, the winner’s full sister whom Jacobs sold as a yearling for $19,000.“This is her first time on the turf, and she goes in 1:01,” Sims said. “This was a good field, a good group. We’ve been trying to get on the turf. She worked on the turf back at Keeneland in the spring. Worked really well. I entered her in the Giant’s Causeway, and she got on the also-eligible list and didn’t draw in because she didn’t have any turf earnings. Now she has some turf earnings. This experiment worked.”The victory continued a big meet for the 20-year-old Gilligan, who rides favored Ten City in the $75,000 Ellis Park Juvenile. Gilligan has won 11 races this meet, tying for fifth in the standings.Marquee Cal Gal won for the 11th time in 27 starts, her earnings now $229,350. Her prior 11 races were all over synthetic surfaces at Presque Isle and Turfway Park, including losing the $50,000 Holiday Inaugural by a neck to Marquee Miss. Sixteen races back, Sims ran Marquee Cal Gal in a $15,000 claiming race at Turfway Park. She won by nine lengths, wasn’t claimed and was eligible for starter-allowance races, where she’s feasted on the competition.Both Marquee Cal Gal and Marquee Miss are out of Jacobs’ Marquetry mare Marquee Delivery and were sired by Cowboy Cal.“The older already had training money invested in her and the other one was a yearling,” said Jacobs, who lives in Stamping Grounds, Ky., outside of Georgetown. “I had no idea what she was going to be. I said, ‘I don’t want two with the same bloodlines, so I’ll sell one.’”Yes, he has had reasons to regret that decision. But Marquee Cal Gal has turned out fine as well.“This is the first opportunity that we’ve had to run her on the turf,” Jacobs said. “Looks to me like she’s suited for it.”last_img read more

Pricing policies prove tough

first_imgA recent survey of company directors in the food supply chain conducted by Grant Thornton, leading business and financial adviser to the food industry sought to probe the relationship between supermarkets and their suppliers and the extent of supermarket power.It found that eight out of 10 (83%) UK food suppliers expect to see more firms within their sector become insolvent during 2007, with more than 50% laying the blame squarely on supermarkets and pointing to price pressure, excessive power, de-listing and the refusal to renegotiate prices in the light of higher costs as the main examples of unreasonable behaviour. Other potential triggers for insolvencies include: rising costs, competition and poor management.Duncan Swift, head of food and agribusiness at Grant Thornton, has specific experience of problems within the bakery sector. He says: “Bakery is a large market within the food supply chain. It has been acutely affected in the past six years by supermarket pressure.”It is probably the category which has managed to re-buff the advance of supermarket own-label more than any other, thanks to NPD, resisting the strategy of the main players on occasion by standing very firm on discounts.”This normally involves the words: ’We can’t do that but we can do this, this and this’, referring to price or other financial arrangements for particular products.”Swift says there are two key reasons why there have been failures in the bakery sector. “There have been a number of new entrants who think they can reap the fertile ground of own-label supply, but the perceived vacuum is not there.”Secondly, certain businesses to fail to have a complete overview of all the financial commitments and their consequences. They don’t understand all the parts of their business that interface with the supermarkets. For example it is essential for bakeries to have an accurate Customer Contribution Analysis, also showing cash flow.”Swift says this is what tells you if you are making a profit and the level of profitability (or loss) incurred for each customer. “You would be surprised at the number of bakery businesses that have key accounts representing 30% of turnover that is not actually benefiting their bottom line.”Recently I have seen a bakery business where a member of the finance team made a financial commitment and did not share it with the rest of the accounts team – it was a cash flow issue – which shook the confidence of that business’s financial stakeholders and funders.”But it is not all bad news, Swift stresses: “The strength of the bakery sector has been the quality of its products and to say ’no’ on occasions “It must stand by that decision and offer alternatives. And, having identified areas that are not making money, you must address these as a priority.” n—-=== The results revealed: ===? Almost two-thirds (64%) of sup- pliers operate without formal contract terms with supermarkets. Just 22% enjoy written terms? Largely because of no written terms, almost a quarter of suppliers complained of having an order cancelled or significantly reduced within 72 hours of delivery (9% often, 9% a few times, 6% once) without obtaining any form of compensation.? 22% of respondents stated the period of time between the delivery of goods/issue of invoice to receiptof payment had been extended by the supermarket(s) they supply.? Almost 60% of suppliers have no notice period in respect of their supply agreements, so that supermarkets have few, if any, obligation if they were to de-list them. Forty-one per cent of respondents claim to have a notice period, but for half of these, it’s purely on a verbal basis.? Over the past three years, almost 80% of suppliers have been sub- jected to supermarket pressure to drop their prices. Suppliers stated that their products are now sold between 0% to 30% more cheaply than three years ago – the average being 8%.? Between 0% and 25% (average of 4%) is the proportion of suppliers gross sales value that is contributed back to supermarkets in the form of volume over-riders, discounts, promotional and marketing contributions and any other payments.last_img read more
