€66 million spent on home improvements in Limerick

first_imgLIMERICK homeowners have spent more than  €66.4 million through the Home Renovation Incentive (HRI) since its launch in 2013.This incentive has allowed city and county homeowners to carry out 4,749 home improvement projects over the last four years, according to figures from the Construction Industry Federation (CIF).Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up These projects have had an average spend of €13,983, providing a huge boost to the local economy and employment in the construction sector according to the CIF.Introduced in 2013, the Home Renovation Incentive (HRI) provided homeowners with an income tax credit at 13.5 per cent of qualifying expenditure on home improvement works carried out on a main home or rental property by qualifying contractors.“The success of the scheme in Limerick has been evident with the scale of the work undertaken on home improvements and energy upgrades,” a CIF spokesman said.“While the scheme concluded at the end of 2018, it was successful in encouraging significant private sector investment in the upgrading of private and rental property.”The largest amount of work was carried out completing home extensions (34%), followed by general repair and renovations (25%), window replacement (11%) and kitchen replacement (10%).CIF spokesman Shane Dempsey said  that the HRI has been a significant contributor to construction activity with registered contractors in Limerick. A total of 4,749 projects in Limerick was a very significant level of private investment over the five years of the scheme from local homeowners,” he added.

Though his visa had validity till January 26, 2025, he is allowed to stay only up to 180 days in India on a single visit, as per the visa norms.This meant that he has to leave India before August 26.During his stay in Kerala, the lockdown was imposed in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic. In this backdrop, he sent representations to the Commissioner of Immigration and Foreigners Registration Officer, seeking permission to extend his stay. He pointed out that there were more than one lakh deaths in USA due to COVID-19, compared to 20 deaths in Kerala (as on June 24, the date of email representation). Therefore, he said that at his age, he felt safer to be in Kerala than in USA. He added that he saw business opportunities in Kerala, and sought to convert his tourist visa into business visa, without following the process of going to USA and then seeking the conversion of visa.Since he did not get any favourable response, he approached the High Court by way of a writ petition under Article 226 of the Constitution of India, submitting that since his visa is valid till 2025, there should not be any impediment in his stay beyond 180 days in India at a stretch.The single bench of Justice C S Dias, which considered the writ petition, observed on the basis of SC precedents that a foreign national cannot claim the fundamental right to reside and settle in India under Article 19(1)(e) of the Constitution.Referring to SC precedents such as Louis De Raedt v. Union of India and Others [(1991) 3 SCC 554], State of Arunachal Pradesh v. Khudiram Chakma [(1994) Supp. (1) SCC 615] ,Hans Muller of Nurenburg v. Superintendent, Presidency Jail, Calcutta [AIR 1955 SC 367], the bench observed that the power of the Government of India to expel foreigners is absolute and unlimited.”In view of the categoric declaration of law by the Honourable Supreme Court, the plea of the petitioner to permit him to stay back in India cannot be accepted, as it falls within the purview of the guidelines and the discretion of the Government of India. The petitioner cannot be heard that the guidelines/policies/regulations formulated by the Government of India, that an American national though has been granted a visa having validity of five years has to leave India within 180 days, is irrational or unreasonable. The petitioner does not have a case that there is an infraction of Article 21 of the Constitution of India. Therefore, the plea of the petitioner that he may be permitted to stay for a further period of six months and his visa may be converted from tourist visa to a business visa without leaving the Country, cannot be entertained by this Court”, observed Justice Dias in the order.The Court observed that the petitioner was well aware of the visa conditions when he arrived in India, and “it is too late in the day for him to raise a grievance on the visa conditions”.Though the Court observed that the petitioner’s love for India was “heartening”, it said that it cannot grant him permission to stay beyond the visa period.However, having regard to the pandemic situation and the suspension of international flights, the Court directed the FRO to consider the petitioner’s representation within a period of two weeks, strictly in accordance with the applicable guidelines and policies.The Central Government informed the Court that as per the Office Memorandum issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs on May 5, foreigners, whose visa got expired or is expiring during the period from February 1 till the lifting of the ban on international flights, can apply online for visa extension, and that they will be granted an extension for a period up to 30 days from the date of the lifting of the suspension of international flights, and that they will be allowed to exit India without any overstay penalty.Case DetailsTitle : Johnny Paul Pierce vs Union of IndiaCase No : WP(c) No. 13263/2020Coram    : Justice C S DiasAppearances : Advocate S Saju, A V Sajan & Neelanjana Nair for petitioner; ASG P Vijayakumar for the respondents.Click here to download the judgmentRead JudgmentNext Storylast_img read more

Three dead after massive, ‘unforgettable’ snowstorm pummels NC: Governor

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Three people have died in North Carolina after a massive, “unforgettable” snowstorm pummeled the state, the governor said Tuesday.A driver was trying to free his stuck car on Monday when he began to have medical problems, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said. The driver died at a hospital, he said.Another driver died in the town of Matthews on Sunday after a tree struck his car. The driver then plowed through the front lawn of a church, hitting the building, local police said.In Haywood County, a woman on hospice care died when her oxygen concentrator stopped working from a power outage, the governor’s office said.Beyond the three confirmed storm-related deaths, one additional death is under investigation, Cooper said Tuesday.The storm — described by the governor as a “nightmare” — dropped staggering amounts of snow, ice and rain across North Carolina, with a year’s worth of snow falling in some places in just one day. The most snowfall was 34 inches in the mountains of North Carolina.While the storm has moved on, fallen trees, downed power lines and slippery roads still remain, Cooper said Tuesday.There were 38,000 households still without power as of Tuesday morning, he said.Cooper also warned that the frigid temperatures overnight are transforming slushy roads into dangerous ice.The state’s highway patrol has responded to 2,300 accidents, he said.“If conditions in your area are still dangerous, don’t take the risk. Sit tight,” Cooper said.Virginia, West Virginia and Tennessee also saw over 1 foot of snow in some areas.The forecastThat storm may have moved eastward, but freezing temperatures remain. Brutal wind chills hit much of the eastern U.S. Tuesday, including the South.The National Weather Service has warned drivers to be mindful of black ice.Meanwhile, in the West, six states are under snow, wind or flood alerts ahead of a new storm system approaching the Pacific Northwest.Heavier rainfall is expected in the Northwest on Tuesday, and may lead to flash flooding as winds exceed 50 mph.On Wednesday morning, the storm that brought rain to the Northwest will likely will move east and drop heavy snow, with 1 to 3 feet expected from the Cascades into the Rockies.

GRC holds annual body image week

first_imgFor the seventh consecutive year, the Gender Relations Center (GRC), in alliance with several other on-campus groups and offices, will be celebrating a week to increase awareness about body image and eating disorders. From today through Sunday, Body Image and Eating Disorders Awareness Week will host events throughout campus on a variety of topics within the larger discussion. “We want people and students talking to each other about body image,” Heather Racokzy Russell, program director for the GRC, said. “We don’t want them to be silent about these things. At the very least people will realize they don’t have to be alone in these things.” Finding Balance in College: How to do it with your Healthy Voice is the first women-only event in the history of the week is tonight at Legends from 8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. The event will feature Meredith Terpeluk, a Notre Dame graduate and president of a wellness and life coaching company. Russell said she will bring a unique viewpoint to the lecture because she knows what the environment is like on campus. Tuesday night will feature the Mass of Healing at 10 p.m. in the Dillon Hall Chapel. “The Mass of Healing puts a special Notre Dame spin on this kind of thing,” Russell said. The panel, Perfectly Disordered: Eating Disorders, Body Image and College Life, is Wednesday night in the Eck Center Auditorium. The panel will feature talks from students as well as Valerie Staples, a staff psychologist from the University Counseling Center. “This will offer a much broader perspective,” Russell said. Russell said attitudes at Notre Dame can serve a breeding ground for body image problems and eating disorders. “Notre Dame is an environment where competition and perfection run rampant,” she said. “We need to work together to overcome obstacles and head in the direction of recovery.” Public service announcement put together by the Week’s organizers will run in Saturday’s football program. “Eating disorders are serious, life threatening illness — not choices,” the announcement states. “It is important to recognize the pressures, attitudes and behaviors that contribute to the development of eating disorders and body image concerns.” Russell said this is the first time the week has run anything in the football program, but she is hoping it will help with the cause. “The point is for outreach to the larger community,” she said. “This is an issue Notre Dame students are concerned about.” More than 10 million females and 1 million males battles with an eating disorder, the announcement states. “Some people perceive that Notre Dame students have it all together and that Notre Dame students wouldn’t battles these issues,” Russell said. “It’s actually much more likely with high-achieving students to experience these issues.” Other events this week include a poster campaign and an event with AcoustiCafe. The poster campaign, called “This Is My Student Body,” is continued from something student government started last year, senior Mariah McGrogan said. McGrogan is co-chair of the Gender Issues Committee for Student Senate and works as a student assistant with the GRC. “It’s an idea that takes inspiration from the Dove ‘Real Beauty’ campaign,” McGrogan said. “The ‘Real Beauty’ campaign is about not feeling anxiety about your natural beauty.” The posters have images of students, along with quotes and Notre Dame images to make the campaign speak to the campus about awareness. “The Week is a good healing experience for those who’ve dealt with eating disorders or body images issues,” she said. “But it’s also important to raise awareness …We need to check ourselves with our language and dieting habits.” The AcoustiCafe event will feature the regular musicians of AcoustiCafe with songs, spoken word pieces and information about body image and eating disorders. “The nice part about the AcoustiCafe event is we’re taking a signature staple event at Notre Dame and asking them to feature this issue,” she said. “We hope the regulars are exposed to something they wouldn’t have typically attended.” Russell said students should talk to someone if they are experiencing problems with these issues. “It’s so important for them to talk to one person they can trust,” she said. “Not someone who will support putting them down when they say things like, ‘I feel fat.’ They need someone who they can reach out to for help.” The Week is sponsored through the GRC, in collaboration with the University Counseling Center, Student-Athlete Welfare and Development, Feminist Voice and student government.

Cross-college collaboration helps local cancer patients

first_imgThe Harper Cancer Research Institute, a Notre Dame and Indiana School of Medicine collaboration, recently initiated a partnership with local healthcare organizations including the Beacon Health System (BHSMH), The Medical Foundation (TMF) and Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center (SJRMC) in order to provide mutational profiling to local cancer patients through the acquisition of a Sequenom MassARRAY instrument.Associate director of the Harper Institute Andy Bullock said grant funding for the project began July 1, and the community partnership organizations have since purchased and validated the analyzer, which is now located in the South Bend Medical Foundation.“We just got a note from the South Bend Medical Foundation that in the patients they’ve [screened] so far, they’ve found 22 percent more mutations in these samples that they never would have found previously,” Bullock said. “It’s already having an impact and it’s only been going on for a few months now.”According to the Notre Dame press release, the project received a total of $851,910 including a substantial grant from the Walther Cancer Foundation. Bullock said the Foundation was a driving force in making the project a reality.“This is not a community where everybody can just fly to Boston or MD Anderson [Cancer Center for treatment] and we wanted to do something,” he said. “We had partners in the community that were willing to [help since] it was not something we could do on our own.”Bullock said the partnerships with other organizations in the community were key in pursuing and funding the research because Harper is a basic cancer research institute.“The Medical Foundation is doing this test at [their own] cost since just to buy the kits to do the tests costs a few hundred dollars,” he said. “Now, all the other costs associated with the tests, the staff time, overhead … they’re not charging any of that so the price is only a couple hundred dollars a test as opposed to almost a thousand for what this test might be somewhere else.”Bullock said the collaboration has made the test available to qualifying patients at no cost for the next two years.He said the analyzer tests about 200 mutations simultaneously in approximately five hours to identify certain mutations in tumors and determine how drug therapies may effect treatment.“You want that information so you don’t spend six months on chemotherapy that’s going to do nothing for you and to deal with all the side-effects,” Bullock said.Bullock said the screening is already guiding treatment. In two years, Bullock said he hopes other hospitals in the area join the effort and screening expands to cover more tumor types.“In two years, hopefully it will be a bigger project, and we’ll be going to Walther to show them all the people that have benefitted in the last two years and why we should keep doing it.”Tags: Beacon Health System, Harper Cancer Research Institute, Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center, South Bend Medical Foundationlast_img read more
