While most of us settle in for the night to watch the late evening news, she is cooking up a storm for her friendly neighbourhood fox.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The animal she fondly knows as ‘Foxy’ has been visiting her home every night for the past 12 months.And why wouldn’t he? He is greeted to a delicious slap-up meal every time.“He comes at the same time every night. I go out to the door and whistle and 10 minutes later he is here. He comes in the front door into the hallway and I give him a little feed of chicken or ham. If I don’t have that, I’ll cook four sausages for him,” Jean explains.Jean adores animals and also shares her home with her pet dog, cat, budgie and hedgehog.“The hedgehog has just gone into hibernation so I won’t see him now until next Spring. The funny thing is the fox is more nervous of my cat than she is of him. She is the more dominant one. They get on fine and often eat their meal together when he calls,” she tells me.“The kids on the street love him too. He is a lovely thing. The men in the pub down the street get a great kick out of it as well. They think it’s great gas. They’d be outside the pub smoking and see Foxy passing every night. They get a great laugh from it because they know where he is off to. Then 10 minutes later he passes back up past the pub again with two chicken legs in his mouth.”After a first course of little pieces of chicken or ham, Jean sends Foxy on his way each night with two chicken legs for its main course.“He is well looked after and well liked. I know another man over in Kileely who feeds him too. If I were ever late home Foxy would be curled up outside the front gate waiting for me. He is here every night without fail. He comes in off the riverbank somewhere, walks down through Thomondgate and crosses over to my front door.I don’t think of him as a pet. He is a lovely thing, but a wild thing. I never touch him. He must be about two years old now so one of these days he’ll take off. I will miss him when he’s gone but he is a wild animal and he will go and start his own family soon. He is a lovely sly fox,” says Jean.by Alan [email protected] Advertisementlast_img read more

Discrimination awards in 2003 reached £4.2m

first_img Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Employerspaid out almost £4.2m in compensation for unlawful discrimination at work in2003, according to research published this week.Employmenttribunals awarded payments in 376 cases of disability, race and sexdiscrimination in the 12 months to December 2003 – 37 less than the previousyear.  Ofthe 376 cases, 58 per cent involve sex discrimination, 16 per cent racediscrimination, and 24 per cent disability discrimination. Combinedjurisdictions accounted for 2 per cent of all awards.Theanalysis, by Personnel Today’s sisterpublication EOR (Equal OpportunitiesReview), shows that the total compensation bill is less than the total for 2002(which saw exceptional payouts in race and sex discrimination cases), but showsan 11 per cent increase on the 2001 figure.EOReditor, Sue Johnstone, saidit has monitored workplace discrimination awards since 1989. Generally, thetotal awards paid out show an upward trend, although there have been peaks andtroughs for race and disability cases.Since1999, the median award in all three jurisdictions (sex, race and disability)has remained above £5,000.Otherkey findings:–More than half of the sex discrimination awards (51 per cent) were linked topregnancy and childcare issues–Applicants who have suffered discrimination can expect a payout of around£5,000-£6,000 for the total award and between£2.500-£4,000 for an injury to feelings award. (Injury to feelingsawards recompense individuals for the personal distress caused by unlawfuldiscrimination)–Five awards were for more than £100,000 Discrimination awards in 2003 reached £4.2mOn 7 Sep 2004 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. last_img read more

Particle size measurement of diatoms with inference of their properties: comparison of three techniques

first_imgDiatom-rich sediments are common in several oceanic regions, especially the Southern Ocean. Some of these are strongly affected by bottom currents and are expected to be sorted by the flow. Examination of data on diatoms’ response by instruments commonly used for size measurement is presented here. Diatoms are silt- to fine sand-size, filigree silica structures of many shapes with high porosity, thus both the bulk density and shape strongly influence the “size” that is calculated from measurements. We document the particle size of diatoms measured by instruments based on settling velocity (Sedigraph), electrical resistance pulse counting (Coulter counter), and laser diffraction (Malvern laser sizer). The Malvern laser consistently measures the largest diameters, followed by the Coulter counter and then settling-based techniques. Relationships between these inferred sizes (all expressed as quartz-equivalent spherical diameters) have implications for the physical properties of diatom tests. Earlier work has demonstrated that laser diffraction responds to the particles’ external projected area. The effects of both low effective density and irregular shape of diatoms (compared with terrigenous grains) on their settling velocity causes the Sedigraph to indicate relatively small diameters. Shape effects are less pronounced for quasi-spherical diatom species. The Coulter counter records the diatoms’ solid volume and is relatively unaffected by their density or shape. The measurement of different physical parameters by these instruments offers a basis for estimation of diatom porosity (fluid-occupied volume within the test). Measurements of the external diameter and solid volume allow estimates of porosity Phi. For (laser) sizes > 20 mu m this Phi = 75-95%, which can be quite well modeled as a perforated spherical shell of wall thickness similar to 1-1.5 mu m. For paleocurrent interpretations, a settling-based technique makes Sedigraph measurements of particle size the most useful, but the visual size is best given by laser.last_img read more

Britain’s Gulf Minehunting Force Form Up to Greet Their New Commander

More than 150 sailors – from HM Ships Atherstone, Quorn, Shoreham and Ramsey – plus specialist engineers and the Mine Warfare Battle Staff formed up for a ‘clear lower deck’ to greet Cdr Jim Buck.Meet the men and women making sure there’s a permanent Royal Navy minehunter presence in the Gulf, 24/7/365.This is (almost) the full complement of the UK Mine Counter-Measures Force, mustered on the jetty in Bahrain for a ‘clear lower deck’ to mark the arrival of their new commander, Cdr Jim Buck (front right).So formed up are (back row, left to right): 31 sailors from Sandown-class warship HMS Ramsey, 38 and 37 souls from Hunt-class ships HMS Atherstone and Quorn respectively, and 31 men and women who form the ship’s company of Ramsey’s sister HMS Shoreham.We say almost the full complement because duty watches were, of course, still aboard their ships while the rest of their shipmates lined up on the concrete.In front of them, the 25 engineers of Fleet Support Unit 2.And then there’s the mine warfare battle staff (16 souls) drawn from Mine Counter-measures Squadron 2 (MCM2) in Portsmouth.At the front, alongside his CO, is the Chief of Staff, Lt Cdr Ben Stait.In all, 155 Naval personnel – although that’s not quite all it takes to sustain the four-strong force, for there’s the ship’s company of RFA Cardigan Bay (60 plus), whose vessel is the ‘mother ship’ for the force (and home to the battle staff), and the staff of the UK Maritime Component Commander, the RN’s senior command in the region, in Bahrain itself.Cdr Buck has just taken over from his predecessor at MCM2, Cdr Martin Mackey, while his Portsmouth-based staff take it in turns with their comrades from north of the border, MCM1 in Faslane, to direct the minehunters’ mission in the Gulf – a mission which has now been going for more than six years.The task of the force is to hone the RN’s ability to find mines in warm, sandy waters, strengthen the Navy’s bonds with regional navies and Coalition warships patrolling the Gulf, and generally contribute to the wider international effort to ensure these waters are safe and secure for all mariners.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, February 7, 2013; Image: Royal Navy View post tag: form View post tag: Defence View post tag: Naval View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Commander View post tag: Navy View post tag: Gulf Share this articlelast_img read more

Flyboys

first_imgIf you were to walk into Flyboys halfway through, you wouldn’t have missed much. The movie creaks slowly into motion as it explores characters’ backstories and sets up the scenario. Based on a true story, Flyboys follows a group of young Americans in 1916 who engage with the French airforce in the Lafayette Escadrille before the States had officially joined the effort.At first the characterization seems shallow; on the one hand we are presented with the French commanders, mockingly portrayed as bumbling and fatherly—a very poor match for the Americans’ well-drilled servicemen. On the other, we have the collection of new recruits, each arriving in France with his own trite history. They begin training, learn to fly, and accordingly start making tasteless jokes about combat. The dynamic of the group is immature—more American Pie than Apocalypse Now. A film’s score is usually unintrusive, but here it is ever-present, a constant reminder of the emotions the film-makers want us to feel about characters who have, as yet, done nothing to justify our sympathy.That all changes, however, as soon as they enter air combat. Suddenly we—and they—come to realize how vulnerable these men are in their fragile aeroplanes, flying very low and very slow by modern standards. They fly over No Man’s Land and shells explode in mid-air around them; this is scary stuff. Unfortunately, the dialogue remains stilted-as a result, there’s still some time to go before we can be fully sympathetic with these characters.In the midst of the shootouts, a love story develops between our hero (played by a very heroic-looking James Franco) and a French woman (Jennifer Decker). The linguistic difficulties begin to grate fairly quickly, but she is looking after her late brother’s children who, like all the finest French movie-children, are good for chorusing ‘Bonjour’, and ‘Au revoir!’ The romance, however, does succeed in offering a respite from the gruesomeness of the aerial dogfights and beginning the process of emotionally involving the audience.This process continues as the story develops and members of the squadron are gradually killed off. Each of the deaths is handled gracefully as appropriate to the character concerned and resists cheap sentimentality. Finally, the score fades appropriately into the background, and we’re left with a believable and sympathetic set of characters. The film is visually stunning, with many extensive aerial shots over ‘France’ and ‘Germany’ – all, in fact, filmed over south-east England. The effects required to realize the squadron’s flights and aerial combat are entirely believable and there is a degree of real humour (not just the tasteless stuff) provided by the expressions of the squadron’s captain (Jean Reno).The ending feels slightly abrupt, but not because the film is short; it is a sign of how good the film does eventually become that you don’t realize two-plus hours have passed when the credits roll. There is a realistic lack of resolution to the separate story-lines as the film effectively ends in the air. However, that is surely a realistic reflection of these men’s experience of the end of the war: one minute they’re fighting; the next they’re not.The film suffers intially from an overbearing score and poor early characterization, but once we’re able to engage with the characters, it becomes and remains an exciting and moving piece.
