PRINGLE: HOW STATE PAYS PRIVATE FIRMS €850M TO RUN CENTRES FOR ASYLUM SEEKERS

first_imgDONEGAL TD Thomas Pringle is bidding to end the regime here which forces asylum seekers to spend up to a decade in so-called ‘direct provision centres’ around the countryThe independent deputy says 4,300 plus asylum seekers, more than one third of them children, are living in “inhumane conditions not fit for the 21st century in the 34 direct provision accommodation centres throughout the country. This system must end.”The Donegal TD highlighted the costs of the system, saying it had been extortionate, but was “providing little in terms of a decent standard of living. The State has given more than €850 million to private firms for the provision of accommodation and food since direct provision was established.” He went on: “Many of these companies are large firms involved in the property, hospitality or catering business.“Several have moved to shield their company accounts from public scrutiny and, in some cases, their beneficial owners include companies in offshore jurisdictions such as the Isle of Man or British Virgin Islands.” PRINGLE: HOW STATE PAYS PRIVATE FIRMS €850M TO RUN CENTRES FOR ASYLUM SEEKERS was last modified: October 1st, 2014 by John2Share 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:asylum seekersdirect provision centresThomas Pringle TDlast_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, June 28, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Our weather forecast is a little simpler this morning, as we seem to want to make swings back and forth in the pattern. We are starting off drier in our thoughts, as we are taking out significant moisture from our forecast this morning through the weekend and early next week in most areas. That’s not to say there won’t be any threat of action; with the warm air that is surging in, we won’t rule out some heat based instability at times, which would trigger a shower or two. Also, we see scattered showers holding over the eastern third of Ohio tomorrow, and they will be difficult to get out of here until mid to later afternoon. But, outside of that, we really are not looking for anything well organized through the next 4 days, and outside of NE Ohio, we should see partly to mostly sunny skies with warmer afternoons.  From today through next Monday we should average about 3-6 degrees above normal. The pattern swings back wetter on Tuesday of next week, and we have rain chances in the forecast for the following 5 days from there. We can see up to .4″ Tuesday and up to .25″ Wednesday before we get rains of at least a half an inch or more each day Thursday through Saturday. Initial coverage will be around 60% Tuesday and Wednesday before jumping to 80-90% for Thursday through Saturday statewide. Saturday will be the wettest, and may have the best chance of thunderstorms. That means we can see some significant moisture stack up next week. We do get a mix of clouds and sun in for the afternoon of Sunday the 7th , but only after showers leave early Sunday morning. The map at right shows rain through the 10 day period, most of which comes next Tuesday through Saturday. For the extended period, we continue with a relatively active pattern, as rains are expected at least 3 out of 6 days. A few showers come up across southern and western parts of the state Monday the 8th, perhaps up to .3”. However, the rest of the state stays dry and sunny. Tuesday and the first part of Wednesday also will turn out partly to mostly sunny. Clouds increase next Wednesday afternoon, and then we see showers return overnight Wednesday night in the south and west. From there action expands and thunderstorms develop for Thursday the 11th. We can see a tenth to half an inch with 80% coverage. After about a 12 hour pause in action through the first part of Friday, shower and storms are back overnight Friday night and Saturday the 12th and 13th. Rains there can be from .2”-.8” with coverage at 80%.last_img read more

Wedding bells finally ring in newly-electrified Rajasthan village

first_imgWedding bells rang for 19-year-old Urmila in the nondescript Rajghat village of Rajasthan’s Dholpur district earlier this month, on the day the villagers cast their votes for Lok Sabha election, shortly after electricity reached the village. The small village with a population of 350 had been living in darkness since Independence.The village, which shares its name with Mahatma Gandhi’s memorial Rajghat in Delhi, falls in the Chambal river basin region on the Rajashan-Madhya Pradesh border, which is a forest area. Because of the technical glitch of its location within the Municipal Council’s jurisdiction, the rural settlement was deprived of the benefits of schemes designed for panchayats.Electricity has arrived in Rajghat through a transformer installed by the State government after sustained efforts of a medical student and his friends, who have launched a campaign for improving the living conditions of villagers for the last four years with the help of donors and crowdfunding. The group also undertook a social media drive with hashtag #SaveRajghat.Urmila’s wedding took place after sunset on May 6 and a feast was given to the villagers and the baraat (marriage party), belonging to Agra district, for the first time in the midst of lights all around them. The poor villagers rejoiced at the ceremony, as the power discom officials promised to lay the lines to connect all the 39 households in the village with electricity supply.Crusader’s effortsSituated on the banks of Chambal river, barely five km away from Dholpur town, the small and dusty Rajghat village has no roads, water pipelines or basic medical facilities. The lone government primary school has only a few students. Ashwani Parashar, an MBBS student in Sawai Man Singh Government Medical College in Jaipur and a native of Dholpur, took up the task in 2015 along with his fellow students to provide basic amenities to the villagers.During the last four years, a kuchcha access road and community toilets were constructed, solar lamps supplied and reverse osmosis water filters installed with the help of donors. The power connection is the latest achievement of the group of students, who have also distributed utility items and clothes among the poor in the village.The villagers living in the vicinity of the river still have no access to clean drinking water. Urmila’s father Deendayal Nishad told The Hindu on Monday that the villagers bring polluted water directly from Chambal, where animal carcasses can be seen floating, and clean it with the help of filters. Though girls from Rajghat are married off to other places, the boys face difficulty in getting married, as no parents are willing to marry their daughters in the village because of its pathetic state. In May last year, when Pawan Kumar, 23, got married in Rajghat, the villagers were witnessing such a wedding after a gap of 22 years.last_img read more
