She said Heritage has added 65 people in the last five years.Atherton said the former Atlantic facilities will remain open and be used to serve the Burlington Airport-based tenant aircraft community. She said only the transient general aviation aircraft will be directed to the facilities off Williston Road, where the Heritage facilities are accessed.She said terms of the deal will not be released.Meanwhile, Atlantic owner, Macquarie Infrastructure Company (NYSE: MIC), said in a statement that it had divested its BTV and Hayward, California, operations, saying they were “sub-scale.” Atlantic, it said, is negotiating the acquisition of additional US-based FBOs.

Ryota Murata punishes Rob Brant to take WBA ‘regular’ middleweight title back with second-round TKO

first_imgNow that’s how you take your title back.The feeling was that Ryota Murata might have taken Rob Brant lightly when he lost his WBA “regular” middleweight championship by unanimous decision to the American in Las Vegas in October.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearWell, back on his home turf in Japan, Murata made sure to change the narrative — and with blunt force. Murata put Brant on wobbly legs with an overhand and chopping right before proceeding to unleash a ferocious barrage of punches to get a rousing second-round TKO and snatch his title back at the Edion Arena Osaka in Osaka, Japan on Friday.Ryota Murata wins it by TKO to reclaim his World Title! 🏆 #BrantMurata2 | @ESPN+ pic.twitter.com/mMbyPLsjdd— Top Rank Boxing (@trboxing) July 12, 2019Although Brant came out as the aggressor in the opening round, peppering Murata with pinpointed punches, the Japanese boxer put the American on notice that this rematch would be very different, landing 29 power shots, including several to the body.Then came that devastating overhand right from which Brant wouldn’t recover. Brant inexplicably didn’t bother to clinch to slow Murata’s onslaught, and it cost the Saint Paul, Minn. native as Murata continued to rip through his guard before dropping him with a right-left hook combination.The ref could’ve stopped the action as Murata barraged Brant while he leaned against the ropes. But he let the bout continue, keeping a close eye on Brant. Seconds later, Murata connected on two more vicious right hooks, and the ref had seen enough.After a dominant Round 2 from Murata, the ref waves off the fight!! 😱#BrantMurata2 | @ESPN+ pic.twitter.com/Bf9Uj7YukP— Top Rank Boxing (@trboxing) July 12, 2019Brant seemed to dispute the stoppage, but it was more than warranted, as the ref gave him ample time to recover and work his way back into the fight. Instead, Murata closed out the show in emphatic fashion with an overall resounding performance from the 2012 Olympic gold medalist.last_img read more

‘Companies must do more to protect children online’

first_imgTHE ISPCC has welcomed a Joint Oireachtas Committee on Children and Youth Affairs’ Report on Cyber Security for Children and Young Adults and urged the government to implement the recommendations for keeping children and young people safe online.However, the charity says the report does not go far enough. Statutory regulations for providers of online services and enhanced Garda powers to investigate online crimes must also be implemented as a priority, it said.The national child protection charity has been to the fore of championing the need for enhanced measures to increase children’s online safety. ISPCC representatives briefed the Joint Oireachtas Committee in February 2017 on the difficulties experienced by young people online and the need for a National Strategy on Children’s Cyber Safety to be introduced. ISPCC CEO Grainia Long said: “This is an important piece of work by the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Children and Youth Affairs. Children’s online safety is the child protection issue of our time. In the ISPCC, through our Childline service and our one-to-one work with children, we hear first-hand the voices of children. They tell us of the need for increased education and awareness. We know from their experiences that regulation and support is needed — this is a whole of government issue.“The ISPCC is pleased to see cross-party support for a national cyber safety strategy. The report’s 18 recommendations emphasise the importance of law reform, the need for industry to enhance safety for young people using services, the need for the State to play a greater role in regulation, awareness and monitoring of this area through the Office of a Digital Safety Commissioner, education and awareness raising. We agree that cyber safety education needs to be embedded into the curriculum from primary school level, with appropriate supports across the education system.“However, the committee recommends that ‘Social media platforms do more to strengthen their safety policies with a view to protecting their users. This could be done in consultation with the proposed Office of the Digital Safety Commissioner.’ The ISPCC is of the view that this is not sufficiently robust to protect children.“Self-regulation of companies that provide services to children online will not be sufficient. The proposed Office of Digital Safety Commissioner must have the power to implement statutory regulation. We urge Government to adopt the recommendations and to go further, and require industry to adhere to statutory standards. It is imperative now that as recommended this Office be adequately resourced, with appropriate funding and staffing, and further, with statutory powers. “We are pleased to see that the report has acknowledged the programmes and work being carried out by An Garda Síochána on limited resources. In implementing these recommendations, the government should also make provision for including enhanced powers and resources for Gardaí, as recommended by the Special Rapporteur on Child Protection, Dr Geoffrey Shannon.“There is now real momentum for change in this area, to better protect children online. A cyber safety strategy must be developed as a priority, in full consultation with stakeholders and with children at its centre, having regard to EU policy development in this area.“This is part of a suite of inter-dependent measures, including the Data Protection Bill, which must be introduced without delay so that children and young people can continue to enjoy the breadth of opportunities the internet presents in the safest and most supportive environment possible.“The report is a result of much focused work and significant consultation. It sets a clear direction for what needs to happen now, and, as this is a stated priority for Government, the ISPCC looks forward to its swift adoption and to involvement in developing a comprehensive cross-Government strategy on children’s online safety to help ensure children are safer online.” ‘Companies must do more to protect children online’ was last modified: March 30th, 2018 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:childrechildrenISPCConlineprotectionreportlast_img read more
