first_imgThe need for the funding of Buncrana Leisure Centre will be raised once again today at the monthly sitting of Donegal County Council.Cllr Jack Murray has confirmed that he will be raising the need for the development of leisure centre facilities in Donegal. The call for a swimming pool in his constituency of Inishowen is expected to be a top priority.Speaking in advance of the meeting, Cllr Murray said; “For far, far too long, the people of Inishowen have been without a leisure centre in the peninsula. “A generation is growing up without learning to swim. We are deprived of a vital community facility and patience has long worn out.“During my term as Mayor of Inishowen, I organised a meeting of all nine Inishowen county councillors and the leisure centre committee, where it was agreed – on a cross-party basis – that we would support the necessary funding being made up by the council.“Similarly, I proposed in Lifford that this funding be released. This was also unanimously supported.“Despite these positive agreements at a political level though, the wait has continued. “So, I will move a motion at our council meeting, once again seek support from my council colleagues, demand that all obstacles are overcome and a funding package agreed.“The 40,000 people of Inishowen deserve, and are entitled to; a leisure centre facility like those in other parts of Ireland would take for granted.”Funding for Buncrana Leisure to be discussed in council was last modified: March 25th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:buncranaCllr Jack Murraycouncilswimming poollast_img read more

first_img22 September 2003As the Gay Pride Festival gears up for its 14th annual run, the event – or phenomenon, as it has undoubtedly become – has plenty to celebrate. Each year the festival, highlighting the rights of gays and lesbians, gets bigger and better.As the largest event of its kind it the country – and the continent – the Gay Pride Festival, which drew as many as 20 000 participants last year, has become a major tourist attraction, enticing like-minded travellers from around the world to join in the fun.And plenty of fun will be on offer. This year’s theme is “Celebrate our City”, and the event, which spans a whole week, will feature plays, poetry, art, photography, cabaret, comedy, workshops, church services, theatre and music.Many organisations from other African countries, including Mozambique, Nigeria, Zambia, Swaziland, Namibia and Zimbabwe, will be participating.The Pride Festival 2003 takes place from 18 – 26 September 2003 in and around Melville, Johannesburg, includes the Pride 2003 Film Festival, an art exhibition, cabaret evenings and stage productions.Pride 2003 culminates in the Pride Parade through the streets of Rosebank on 27 September, and the Fair Day at Zoo Lake on the same day.The Gay Pride Festival has come a long way since the first event of its kind, the South African Lesbian and Gay Pride March, took place on 10 October 1990, with about 800 marchers. It was billed as a protest march, but even then the relatively small event had the feel of a carnival.Now this atmosphere of celebration is Gay Pride’s trademark, with the colourful parade of spectacularly decorated floats and participants the primary focus of the annual ritual.Despite all the fun and fanfare, protest has always been at the forefront of festival-goers’ minds. Before South Africa’s Constitution was adopted in 1994, gays and lesbians sought freedom from discrimination. Now, with a Constitution in place that protects the rights of all individuals, regardless of sexual orientation, some of the battles have been won.However, there are plenty of other battles still being fought – not least for the rights of gays and lesbians in countries like Zimbabwe and Namibia, where oppression and discrimination are rife.As the Gay Pride Festival becomes an increasingly prominent and inclusive event, it is supported each year by a growing range of cultural, political and recreational organisations.For full information, visit SA Pride 2003, as well as Pride 2003’s online partners, Q-Online and reporterlast_img read more

first_img2 May 2014 The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) opens its central Results Operation Centre at the Tshwane Events Centre in Pretoria on Thursday. More than 25.3-million people have registered to vote in the country’s fifth democratic elections on 7 May – a 9.5% increase in registered voters compared to the 2009 polls – and the centre will serve as both as the organising hub of the election as well as the IEC’s temporary headquarters before, during and immediately after the election. “Since the first elections managed by the Electoral Commission in 1999, the Results and Operations Centre has been set up each election as a vibrant meeting point for political parties, the media, observer missions from other parts of the world and many other stakeholders in the period immediately before and after the election,” IEC chairperson Pansy Tlakula said at Thursday’s opening. “As an operations or nerve centre, the facility enables us not only to monitor and coordinate operations nationally but also to field and process queries as they arise. The technology behind the Centre also allows us to provide designated workstations for political representatives and members of the media so that they can monitor results in real time from their allocated booths.” There are 10 Results Operation Centres across the country where the results will stream in at the conclusion of voting until the official results are declared. These results will come in from the 22 363 voting stations that have been set up by the IEC across the country. “We are ready to capture the results and give South Africans the final result when the poll is done as we have done in the past,” Tlakula said. IEC deputy chairperson Terry Tselane said the results centre was “fundamentally about transparency … This year we have more than 31 media houses represented at the centre including 11 radio stations and international television stations”.

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) reported today the state’s first human West Nile virus case in 2018, a 71-year-old Lake County man who required hospitalization.So far this year, 20 Ohio counties have reported West Nile virus activity in mosquitoes collected and tested as part of statewide surveillance. Last year, ODH reported 34 human West Nile virus cases, including five deaths. In Ohio, diseases transmitted by infected mosquitoes most often occur from May through October.“West Nile virus activity in mosquitoes is the highest Ohio has seen this early in the season since 2012 when we reported 122 human cases for the year,” said Sietske de Fijter, state epidemiologist and chief of the ODH Bureau of Infectious Diseases. “We are encouraging Ohioans to take precautions to avoid mosquito bites, including by eliminating potential breeding sites around their homes, in order to prevent mosquito-borne diseases like West Nile virus.”The primary way people get West Nile virus is through the bite of an infected mosquito. Most people who become infected with West Nile virus do not have any symptoms. About one in five people who become infected develop a fever with other symptoms such as headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea, or rash. Less than 1% of infected people develop a serious neurologic illness, such as encephalitis or meningitis (inflammation of the brain or surrounding tissues). There are no medications to treat or vaccines to prevent West Nile virus infection.Mosquitoes can live indoors and outdoors, and some types bite during the day while others bite at dusk and dawn. Here are some tips to avoid mosquito bites:Use EPA-registered repellents according to label instructions.Wear long sleeves, long pants and long socks when outdoors.Mosquitoes may bite through thin clothing, so spraying clothes with an EPA-registered repellent will give extra protection.Treat clothing and gear such as pants, boots, socks and tents with a product containing permethrin, or buy permethrin-treated clothing or gear. Do not apply permethrin directly to skin.Mosquito-proof your home:Install or repair screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes outside.Help reduce the number of mosquitoes around your home by emptying standing water on a regular basis from flowerpots, gutters, buckets, pool covers, pet water dishes, discarded tires and birdbaths.Learn more about mosquitoes and West Nile virus on the ODH website at read more
