One family lost four out of five children to drug addiction

first_img Short URL Tuesday 29 Nov 2016, 8:30 PM 14,757 Views THE MINISTER IN charge of the national drugs strategy has called on communities to take control and report drug dealing at a local level.Speaking to reporters earlier today, Catherine Byrne said her own community in Inchicore had been “ravaged” by drugs.She expressed particular concern about young people who are being “sucked in” and asked to distribute drugs at local level or citywide.“We all have a responsibility to do as much as we can to stop criminal activity, particularly targeting young people, because when you’re at a vulnerable young age – as young as 12 now – you can be targeted.”Byrne also spoke of young people being intimidated by gangs because one of their siblings is an addict or a dealer. 12 Comments Image: Leah Farrell/ Share7 Tweet Email1 center_img ‘One family lost four out of five children to drug addiction’ Members of the public are being urged to report drug dealing in their area. “Young people who have never been involved in any kind of drugs before, any kind of issue around drugs and they may be targeted because they’re in a group of people.”Drugs are killing an awful lot of young people in our communities. I can tell you one family in my own has lost four members of their family, out of five children this person has lost four members. There’s too many parents and grandparents rearing children now because family members have passed away of addiction and I think we need to be conscious all the time.Assistant Commissioner John O’Driscoll, who also spoke today as Crimestoppers highlighted its anonymous ‘Dial to Stop Drug Dealing’ line, said gardaí would not have achieve many of the results they have had without the help of communities.So far in 2016, 104 calls have been made to the confidential phone line. As a result of calls last year, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, cannabis, and firearms were seized and a number of people were charged with possession for sale and supple.Sometimes people give information in relation to something which they think is fairly minor, but it could actually lead to a very significant results. By and large, clearly a lot of the information will relate to those who are dealing on the street. But it could be the missing link for us in getting to someone who is further up the chain.“Remember the people who are involved in drug selling, are the people who are involved in the death, that arises from drug use, all the implications in terms of abandoned needles and social problems within the area,” O’Driscoll said.“All these people who you read about today who are major drug dealers, started off at one time as small dealers and that is how you prevent this problem from continuing at the pace that it has developed over recent years.”Members of the public concerned about dealing in their area, can contact the Dial to Stop Drug Dealing line confidentially on 1800 25 00 25. Read: Two dozen people arrested by gardaí in major drugs sweep>Read: Man arrested after cannabis and cocaine worth €250,000 is seized> Nov 29th 2016, 8:30 PM By Michelle Hennessy Image: Leah Farrell/ Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

In a report on one such visit, seen by, campaigns director for the church’s national affairs office, Jerry Alred said locals have welcomed them, coming out of their homes to watch them plant flowers.“Every week that we come to clean there are some older gentlemen standing in front of the church and they welcome us and smile. There are a lot of nice people in Sheriff Street. Sheriff Street itself looks a mess and needs another clean up.”He said groups from the church have been to the inner city street “at least six or seven days” and have removed “almost two hundred bags of rubbish easily” from the area.Alred told that volunteers had been “clearing up rubbish, picking up needles and planting some flowers”.He said Dublin City Council had provided planters for them to fill. The council said its central area office has liased with any residents or voluntary organisations willing to do cleanups of local areas.“Dublin City Council would provide litter picking tools, refuse sacks and planters/flowers at various locations across the central area if any interest was shown,” it said in a statement.“In April 2017 the City Council provided litter picking tools and planters/flowers to the Sheriff Street area following a request from a voluntary organisation (Foundation for a Drug Free World) in support of a local clean up.”Foundation for a Drug Free World is a division of the Church of Scientology.The church opened its national affairs office in Dublin last year at 4 Merrion Square.  Its website says it is designed as a centre for the church’s outreach across Ireland.It was modelled after the office in Washington which it says was established to “facilitate cooperation between American political and cultural leaders and the church’s social and humanitarian missions”.The church’s registered company here, which has failed to gain religious or charitable status, recorded a profit of €48, 803 in Ireland last year.Its website says it coordinates a number of campaigns here, including efforts to battle drug addiction, improve scholastic performance and educational opportunities for children, and reduce crime and prison recidivism.Read: The Irish Church of Scientology returned to profit last year>Read: Ireland’s blasphemy laws unlikely to prevent Louis Theroux’s Scientology film from being released here> Monday 24 Apr 2017, 12:01 AMlast_img read more

METALSHARK BRO is Your Number One Comic for Shark Week

first_img Keto Turns Your Smartphone Into Your Car KeysCovert Dock for Nintendo Switch Fits in Your Pocket Stay on target Hello team METALSHARK BRO! Thank you so much for talking to us at Geek! For those who don’t know, can you tell us a little bit about yourself for our readers?BOB: My name is Bob Frantz. I live in Cincinnati, Ohio by way of Virginia Beach, Virginia. I’ve been writing comics and self-publishing comics since 2009. My first published work was a 4 issue, all ages mini-series released by Action Lab Entertainment called “Monty the Dinosaur.” Kevin and I started writing together in 2016. We have one published work together (last year’s IF Anthology from Alterna Comics)and have self-published two other books. Impressive, right. Ha!KEVIN: I’m a single dad with custody, a podcaster, and a writer. I am originally from Queens, NY but I now reside in Williamsburg, VA. I’m never sure how much or how little to write in these blurbs, no one wants to know my favorite color or that I spend late nights pondering washable crayons, the number forty-two and Quantum physics.WALT: I was a latchkey kid when I was growing up.  The only things I had waiting for me when I got home were some pop-tarts and G.I. Joes.  I’d devour those heavenly pastries and get to work on creating an elaborate story for my Joes.  Secret agents, master plans, sneak attacks, and even relationships for them.  I’ve always loved telling stories and I’ve tried multiple mediums.  Music, screenplays, movies, acting, and finally comics. Comics allowed me to explore all the stories I wanted to tell. No limits. I’ve since created 3 of my own personal IPS with Shiver Bureau, Cubicles, and Haxor.via KickstarterNow, for what we’ve all been waiting for, tell us ALL about METALSHARK BRO!BOB: METALSHARK BRO is Off the coast of Bali, a shark swims along and casually looks for his next meal. Beelzbra, the douchey nephew of Satan, interrupts this tranquil life to transform the fish into an anthropomorphic shark with a penchant for brutal murder. You know, the natural origin of most heroes. However, the arrogant little demon promises to return Metalshark Bro to his “normal” shark form upon the collection of nine cursed souls. However, the “return” Beelzbra promised doesn’t happen. Naturally, our hero vows revenge against his treacherous maker. Our anti-hero chases Belzbra through time and reality, battling necromancers, zombie soldier on mastodon skeletons, a corrupt priest, and his army ninja nuns. The craziness just goes on and on.This honestly has to be one of the most insane Kickstarters ever. Sharks and Metal? Wicked. You tell us a little bit on the Kickstarter page how METALSHARK BRO got started when you heard a radio DK talking about scientists playing AC/DC for sharks? Can you tell us a little more about that? Was the rest of the team as deeply devoted to the project the minute you told them about it?BOB: There isn’t much more to tell. I was driving back to Cincinnati after a fun con weekend. It was early. I was punch drunk and half asleep and I heard the story about the sharks, and it was like a bomb went off in my head. Called Kevin (because I knew he would be up for his day job) giggling like a child. I could barely relay the story to Kevin. I was so weak. After about two or three minutes I managed to get it out. Kevin was excited. I think it was contagious or we were both exhausted (Kevin was at the con as well) and feeling extra silly.Anyway, we just started brainstorming. AND METALSHARK BRO WAS BORN!!!!! I mean, if it wasn’t for the DJ in Richmond, Va reading that news story then this unholy terror wouldn’t be. This weekend jock on a classic rock station made the world a better place. We should build him a statue or something.via KickstarterHow long did it take you and Kevin to develop the story from the initial idea? Did you both immediately know you wanted to work with Walter [Ostile] for art, Shawn [Greenleaf] for letters/editor and Chas [Pangburn] for editor when you started to develop?BOB: The drive from Hampton, Virginia to Cincinnati is about 9 hours. I was on the phone with Kevin workshopping and brainstorming this thing for most of it. By the time I got home, We had the first arc mapped out.As for the rest of the team, We had worked with Shawn in the past. He is a good editor/letterer/designer. He’s a jack of all trades and a good dude. Chas was a dude I knew from Twitter. I knew he was a dope editor and we had talked about working together. So this seemed like the perfect time.Now Walt is the man. Kevin and I have been fans of Walt’s work for some time and were looking for a book to do together. The metal gods smiled upon us when Walt’s schedule opened up. We pitched Walt, he liked it, and here we are! HERE WE ARE!!!You guys seem to be having an absolute blast with METALSHARK BRO. It looks SO gnarly and brutal. It also shows what the medium of comics can do. Was that what you were going for in making this comic? Pushing the boundaries a little, while just having fun with your friends and making comics?KEVIN: We were just going for different. We were going for so silly it’s dumb, but we will take gnarly, brutal and other much cooler adjectives over my less exciting ones.Bob and I always have fun working together, whether it’s on Word Bros. Or making comics our work style is similar, so it’s all fun until it comes time to pitch.When you add Walter to that mix, it’s just three guys sitting in different areas of the country having a blast throwing ideas back and forth until we can cultivate the best ones.WALT: With a title like Metalshark Bro, the art really has to deliver on the promised ridiculousness. There’s a freedom though, knowing that you can really push it as far as you want. Not just towards the brutal metal aspect, but the silly side of things. Bob and Kevin are open to suggestions and giving my room to explore my stupid fun side. I mean I gave a flying eyeball a bowler hat and put beard stubble on a sharkman. They didn’t even blink.via KickstarterWalter, what was the process like for you to take Kevin and Bob’s script and turn into something so hardcore?WALT: It’s been great. They want to make this comic as metal as possible, and I’ve been able to add all kinds of craziness on top of what was already insane. It’s, dare I say, ludicrous. We know there isn’t any restrictions. We get to push it as far as we can image and that freedom makes my inner child shred the most killer 10-minute solo ever shredded.There are some killer rewards for your Kickstarter, including pins and copies of the physical and digital. What are some other stellar goodies that backers will be able to get? (That you’re ready to disclose!)KEVIN: I’m both saddened and excited to see the two pieces of original art go. Both Adam Ferris and Christian DiBari crushed those pin-up pieces and as much as we’d like to keep them— the backers come first. I think being able to be killed by MSB is a reward backers are sleeping on. You can get killed in a comic by a fictional Sharkman anti-hero, why wait for death when you can design your own? The additional content stories are what I’m really stoked for and hope we can get to in stretch goals. They are pure lunacy, and I think the readers will love them.WALT: I know I am looking forward to those pins, I want one for every single piece of clothing I own. I think the coolest perk is being drawn into the book. You could flip open the book and see yourself staring back out at you. How trippy is that? If you want to throw in a little more green, you can also see Metalshark Bro laying down bloody murder on your little, illustrated alter-ego. When someone asks you what you did today, you can say “I was killed by a demon cursed shark. Top that.”via KickstarterSuper important question. What bands or songs are exclusively on METALSHARK BRO’s playlist?KEVIN: Metalshark Bro! By Don CardenasAnthRAX –Now it’s Dark.Iron Maiden- Two Minutes to MidnightMetallica- Master of PuppetsMegadeth- Killing is My Business… or Hook in Mouth ( had to get a fish related one in there)Slayer- South of HeavenSlipknot- SurfacingSoulfly- Eye for an EyeSepultura- Refuse/ResistBob will say Motörhead – Killed by Death.BOB: Killed by Death by Motorhead has been my Metalshark Bro anthem. The song perfectly sums up the book.WALT: Obviously, MSB’s gonna be shredding those metal bands. Slipknot, Motörhead, Anthrax, GWAR, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Slayer, Maiden, Tool, and basically anything that melts off your face. That’s obvious, but MSB also has a soft side. When he’s relaxing after a long day of slaying monsters, you can find him crushing the chorus to Alanis Morissette’s Ironic.Thank you guys so much for talking with us! Do you have any other projects in the future our readers should be looking out for? Also, where can they find you (via social media) and this dope Kickstarter?KEVIN: Bob and I are currently working on something called “Chase the moon” with our good friend, Drew Moss. And after that, we will be trying to pitch a project we started working on with Tony Gregori who is a wonderful human being as well.You can find me on Twitter or Instagram. will get readers to the Kickstarter as well. Thank for talking to us, we appreciate it!BOB: THERE ARE NO OTHER PROJECTS!!!! IT’S ALL METALSHARK BRO ALL THE TIME!!!! THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. IT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.You can and definitely should back the dope METALSHARK BRO right now on Kickstarter.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Photographer digs out memories of April 5 tornado

first_imgThe Columbian reported on the 40th anniversary of the tornado in 2012.Forty-two years ago, a deadly tornado struck Vancouver. Larry Crispien took photographs of twisted metal, crumpled brick walls and a collapsed school roof on April 5, 1972.And then?“I forgot about them,” Crispien said. “I had them in a suitcase in storage, which is where all our pictures have ended up.”His collection of disaster photographs became the sort of archival stash you’d find only if you went looking for something else.And he did.“My son is getting married in June,” Crispien said, and he went looking for collections of family snapshots to show at the wedding reception.That’s when the Camp Bonneville-area resident found a packet labeled “1972 tornado.”Six people died when two buildings — a supermarket and a bowling center — collapsed.The tornado also destroyed Peter S. Ogden Elementary School, which was rebuilt a mile to the east.Crispien was 19 back then, and a graduate of Washougal High School working in food service at St. Joseph Community Hospital (now PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center).Crispien said he probably wasn’t working that day, or he would have remembered being in the hospital when injured people started arriving.But Crispien’s long career as a C-Tran bus driver did keep him close to one aspect of that disaster. The original “Ogden Elementary was right across from where C-Tran is now,” he said.last_img read more

Why Vances Portfolio Merger Makes Sense

first_img“They were never separate communities as we’ve always brought them together through our events and website. The only area that was separate was in the circulation databases,” says Laurel Didier, publisher of the magazine.They’ve merged those lists now, leaving them with just under 63,000 subscribers—the largest database in the industry, the company also draws about 80,000 unique visitors per month, while the group’s largest event, the biennial Woodworking Machinery & Supply Expo, drew more than 5,200 attendees to its last show, up 5 percent over 2011 and 15 percent over 2009. Didier says it’s smaller show, Cabinets & Closets, is on track to top last year by 25 percent.Reducing production output by two-thirds has obvious benefits from a cost perspective as well, but Vance is putting a lot of that money back into the product. Folios that could be as small as 52 pages are doubling now in an aggressive image-heavy redesign, while a new responsive site is coming in January. And no staff cuts were associated with the consolidation, Didier says.While killing the existing brands is admittedly a risk—Wood Products alone is over a century old, starting in 1896—creating a single resource has its benefits.”The marketplace often got confused with all the wood book names. It made sense to stick with one trusted brand,” Didier says. “Woodworking Network resonates with our audience. They like and expect to see the daily newsletter every morning at 6 am. has enjoyed consistent growth in terms of advertising support, unique visitors and overall page views. Having one brand makes our name and message stronger.” Vance Publishing is consolidating its woodworking portfolio into a single title, Woodworking Network, in a move it hopes will save money and strengthen its growing core.Formerly three separate magazines—Custom Woodworking Business, Closets and Wood Products—the new entity officially merges those audiences. They’d already begun to get closer over the last several years through joint community channels however.Woodworking Network has actually existed as a website for almost two decades, though in 2010, Vance shifted its focus. The brand got its current moniker and went community-first with an emphasis on, as the name suggests, networking. Events and social media were inclusive of Vance’s entire woodworking portfolio, serving as the vehicles for those peer-to-peer relationships.last_img read more

House Panel to Mark up Milcon Spending Bill Next Week

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR House Appropriations subcommittees are expected to mark up two fiscal 2016 spending bills next week including military construction-veterans affairs, reported CQ.With the FY 2016 budget resolutions passed last month by the House and Senate sticking to the Budget Control Act caps for defense and non-defense spending, a combined $1.017 trillion, the allocation for the milcon spending measure shouldn’t vary much from the current year’s level. Both chambers’ resolutions stuffed $38 billion in extra funds into DOD’s war funding account as a way to sidestep the statutory spending caps, though, so appropriators could opt to allocate some of the additional funds to military construction needs.By moving the milcon spending measure early, House Republicans could be confronting President Obama to veto a popular bill. The White House has indicated the president would not sign any appropriations bills that don’t exceed the mandated budget caps, putting the president on a collision course with the GOP.  In the absence of a spending deal between congressional Republicans and the White House, the FY 2016 appropriations process could be easily derailed, according to the story.The other spending measure expected to be taken up next week is energy-water. Both spending bills could reach the House floor before the end of the month.last_img read more

Plus, he’s worked on behalf of both broadcasters and rights holders.”Hutton joined Eurosport in 2015 after Discovery bought a majority-stake ownership in the pan-regional sports programmer.

Tab Notes lets you write and save notes in Firefox and Chrome

first_imgTab Notes lets you write and save notes in Firefox and Chrome by Ashwin on August 13, 2019 in Software – 20 commentsWe have seen and reviewed plenty of note taking applications in the past including tomboy-ng, Boostnote and Joplin which we reviewed recently here on Ghacks. But here’s one which works right in your web browser.Tab Notes lets you write and save notes in Firefox and Chrome. It is from the same developer who is behind the excellent Textarea Cache add-on.How does it work?Once you install the browser extension in chrome or Firefox, it works out of the box. To begin using it, just open a new tab to get to the note interface.The extension takes over the New Tab Page of the web browser.Type something in the page, it doesn’t get simpler than this. You can use it to create as many notes as you want. To add a new note, click on the hamburger menu icon on the left to bring up the side bar, and then select the “Plus” button. And since it works in the browser, it uses the default spell-check tool of the browser.The add-on displays the first few words of a note in the side-panel which you can use for identification and quickly navigating between notes.You can have multiple instances of Tab Notes open at the same time by opening multiple new tab pages in the web browser; this allows you to work on multiple notes at the same time or display multiple notes in different tabs.Tab Notes can be a priceless tool if you want to quickly jot down something like ideas or a to-do list. You could even use it to save links, though they appear as text, so you’ll need to copy and paste them. The extension is available for Firefox and Chrome (I tested it in Edge Chromium).How do you save the notes? You don’t have to because your notes are saved automatically as you type. The notes are persistent, i.e., they remain after you close the browser and restart it. I’d advise you to backup the notes manually using a text editor so you don’t lose any important information though; running a cleaning tool on the system could very well delete the data.Closing WordsThe main issue with Tab Notes is that it takes over the New Tab Page. This can be a problem if you were using a different add-on for the new tab functionality (like Group Speed Dial) or use the New Tab Page actively. There is no workaround for this which means that you are left with one or the other but not both. Many add-ons open a new tab with their own options, perhaps the dev could do the same.The other major con, and this is very subjective, is the complete lack of customization in Tab Notes. I mean there is literally nothing that you can change, not even a bold/italics toggle, or font type or size selector. I was really hoping to try the dark theme, but it appears that the add-on uses the browser’s theme settings.Support for links or images could be a very useful addition as well, but it could remove a bit if the lightness of the note taking experience.Tab Notes is not meant to be a text editor. It is a simple note taking add-on so some people may find the bare bones approach to be better. The developer has mentioned he is working on Markdown support; you can follow the development on GitHub if you are interested.Tab Notes is an open source project, and does not require any permissions at all.Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 1 votes Software Name Tab NotesOperating System WindowsSoftware Category ProductivityPrice FreeLanding Page Advertisementlast_img read more

first_img Chinese cherry grower kicks off domestic season … Thanks to CRISPR-Cas technology, it is now possible to make precise improvements to crops, say Wageningen University scientists.According to the university, this technology is much more exact than the typical selective breeding method. What’s more, the adjustments the system makes are similar to spontaneous natural changes.“The CRISPR system holds great promise for helping to feed the world. Specifically, we can use it to improve plants. And that can be done much more precisely than with typical selective breeding so that only minimal changes are necessary,” comments John van der Oost, Wageningen Professor of Microbiology.He points to tomatoes as an example of a crop that the CRISPR-Cas system could widely benefit.Originally, tomatoes were small fruit from the South American jungle. But people have been cross-breeding different variants for hundreds of years. Over the past 60 years, they have even exposed tomato seeds to chemicals and radiation, called “classical mutagenesis”.The aim of these strategies was to produce large, fast-growing tomatoes. Therefore, the tomatoes that you currently find at the supermarket are very different from the natural variety, says Wageningen.“In tomatoes, a lot has been changed at the DNA level, to the extent that even positive traits have been lost,” adds Van der Oost.

Many people may still remember the tasteless, watery tomatoes from 20 years ago in the Netherlands, notes the university.“The old forms of selective breeding were like taking shots in the dark: you accidentally activated and deactivated genes. In addition to suffering from a loss of flavor, tomatoes have also lost nutritional value and resistance to bacteria and fungi.”Yet CRISPR-Cas provides a modern solution, claims Van der Oost.“Using CRISPR-Cas, scientists recently deactivated six genes in the wild tomato with great precision in order to ensure that it grew larger and faster, but also retained its flavors, nutritional value, and resistance.”What’s more, he points out that they only needed to make limited changes to get these promising results. In total, the team only altered 30 base pairs.Regarding the significance that the system could have for the future, Van der Oost concluded: “Using this technology, we can substantially improve the production of food crops. The exceptional precision of the CRISPR-Cas method means that the flavor, nutritional value, and resistance to disease will not be affected.”Read the full article herecenter_img June 04 , 2019 French court finds Bayer’s Monsanto liable for far … Hortifrut CCO Felipe Juillerat leaves company … last_img read more

first_imgRolls-Royce Motor Cars is planning to increase its manufacturing workforce by 50 per cent.  More than 150 new jobs have been created to support the production of the company’s new model, the Rolls-Royce Ghost. By the end of 2009 Rolls‑Royce will have created almost 400 new jobs in under two years, bringing the total number of employees based at Goodwood, West Sussex to 900.The majority of the new positions have been created in the wood, leather and paint shops as well as the assembly areas. In addition there will be a number of new positions in the headquarter offices, also based at Goodwood. Rolls-Royce is keen to fill all positions within the next few months and anticipates drawing on the considerable pool of highly skilled automotive industry personnel available in the UK.Speaking from Goodwood, Rolls-Royce CEO Tom Purves said, “This is good news for the British car industry at a time when it is struggling. Britain has an exceptional talent for automotive production and we are keen to maximise this at Rolls-Royce. Our new model, the Ghost, has enjoyed an extremely positive international response and we now need to put people in place to bring the car to market.”The Rolls-Royce Ghost will be built on its own dedicated assembly line but will share paint, wood and leather workshops with the Phantom series of cars. Rolls-Royce has expanded all areas of its manufacturing facility over the last two years to prepare for the introduction of the Ghost model. Production will begin in the autumn with customer deliveries from early 2010.www.rolls-roycemotorcars.comlast_img read more
