Twitter Limerick campaigner seeks referendum on animal rights Limerick man celebrating ban on wild animals in circuses TAGSArdpatrick and Kilfinane Hare Coursing ClubcoursingIrish Council Against Blood Sports (ICABS)Irish Coursing ClubJohn Carmodylimerick Limerick animal rights group cease operations THE Irish Council Against Blood Sports (ICABS) have called for a permanent ban on hare coursing following allegations of animals being “savagely mauled” at a coursing event in County Limerick last weekend.Anti blood sports campaigners captured horrific footage of hares being struck multiple times and mauled into the ground by the muzzled dogs at the Ardpatrick and Kilfinane coursing event.“It exposes the myth of cruelty-free coursing that the government claims has been the result of muzzling greyhounds at Irish hare coursing events,” animal rights activist John Fitzgerald said of the footage.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The cruelty was filmed despite frenzied efforts by the coursing club to prevent filming by positioning vehicles to block the vision and paths of the camera people. The film shows the unfortunate hares being savaged and shows one of them being put down by a dispatcher who is running off the field with the doomed animal,” he explained.ICABS intend to present this latest footage to Arts and Heritage Minister Heather Humphreys as further evidence that “hare coursing is beyond reform and that the so-called regulations introduced to protect hares are worthless”.“Witnessing these appalling scenes at the Ardpatrick and Kilfinane coursing meeting, it was never clearer that the time has come for this shameful bloodsport to be finally banned in Ireland,” an ICABS spokesman told the Limerick Post.“ICABS is again contacting Minister Humphreys, the Taoiseach and the National Parks and Wildlife Service to demand an immediate withdrawal of the 2017-18 coursing licence.”They are also calling on Limerick people to contact their local TDs and urge them to back a ban on hare coursing.Limerick animal rights activist John Carmody described coursing as “a ghastly reminder of how backward and outdated we are as a nation and how indifferent we are to the plight of these gentle creatures”.“How can the Government on one hand ban the use of wild animals in circuses and yet allow this most grotesque activity that has went well beyond its time — from an era when we knew no better?” he asked.There was no response from the Irish Coursing Club at the time of going to print.by Alan [email protected] Previous articleLimerick schools send the Fairtrade messageNext articleFontaine Zing will enhance lovelife in Limerick Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Linkedin NewsLocal NewsFilm footage of County Limerick event sparks call for coursing banBy Alan Jacques – November 23, 2017 3784 Email Advertisement RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Pregnant hares held in Glin coursing compound Print Facebook John marks 21 years at the forefront of animal rights Limerick woman highlights plight of circus elephants

A division bench of Justice B V Nagarathna and Justice J.M.Khazi said “It is necessary for state and its departments to rise to the occasion and ensure that Fundamental Rights guaranteed to children in the age group of 6 to 14 years, under Article 21-A is ensured.” The bench added “It is needless to observe on account of the pandemic and when physical classes are impossible, then whether virtual classes could continue is a significant consideration to be made. If the virtual classes are to be held for students then the need of the students who have no access to technology so as to participate in virtual classes becomes significant.” The bench issued the direction after the government advocate informed the court that owing to steep increase in Covid-19, cases which are affecting even the children, the state government has taken a decision to discontinue schools for children in 6 to 9 standard upto April 20. As far as 10th 11th 12th standards are concerned physical presence in classes is optional and even Vidyagama programme has been discontinued. The students are being provided with dry rations till April 21. Moreover, as an when situation emerges suitable decision will be taken by state to meet the challenges on account of the pandemic. The court also directed the state to consider its earlier directions for making available technology to students who are in need of in the form of tablet and smartphone, and wifi-connections. Senior Advocate Harish B Narasappa appearing for the petitioners by A. A. Sanjeev Narrain, Arvind Narrain and Murali Mohan submitted that despite challenges arising from Covid-19 pandemic, there is need for the department to ensure that students who are already within the system of school education, do not drop out and secondly out of school children must be brought back to the education system. Also, those children who have not yet entered the school education system must be brought in. Narasappa also contended that the department must have a plan ready so that all the three categories children referred to above are ultimately brought within the school education system and are retained within the system, so as to comply with the mandate of Article 21-A of constitution and also provisions of RTE Act, 2005. He pointed to the court that those students who are unable to access the requisite technology for receiving instructions from the teachers through online methods are deprived of their Right To Education, particularly under, Article 21-A of the constitution. Accordingly, he urged the court to direct the state to come out with a concrete plan to lessen the gap between urban and rural students and those students who have access to technology and those who do not have such an access. He added “Access to education through the means of technology is need of the hour. It is required to ensure that students remain within the education system and to reduce drop out of children and their diversion to other activities such as child labour or driven to child marriage or child trafficking.” The court agreed to the submission made and orally said “State has to rise to the occasion. We know the State has several contingencies to take note of because of challenge of the pandemic. But what about the effects of the pandemic on education, economy? All these are there not just health.” The court then directed the state and its department to come out with concrete steps as to how it will ensure access to education through virtual classes until the physical classes are to recommence. It even suggested that one of the ways through which education could be continuously imparted is through having more television channels dedicated to imparting students with instruction with a common time table so that government and aided school children could have access through the medium of television/radio. The case will be next heard on April 22.Next Story
6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Most leaders understand that delegating is a must. But it should be more than just pushing your to-do list onto your employees. Instead, it involves learning their strengths and building up your trust in them.The Huffington Post provides four tips on how leaders can delegate well. They include:1. Knowing your strengths and the strengths of each person on your team. What do you and your team members love to do and do well?2. Once you’re familiar with everyone’s strengths, start assigning complementary tasks from your desk to theirs. Keep in mind, someone might need additional training on a particular task – make sure they get it.3. Continually up your productivity. As you become more efficient with your time, keep assigning tasks to your team.4. As your team members complete assigned tasks better and better, your trust in their abilities will grow.

The NBA has fined Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson $15,000 for an obscene gesture made toward a group of fans after Monday’s game against the Nets, the league announced Thursday.The 27-year-old flipped off fans as he walked off the court after Cleveland narrowly escaped with a 99-97 victory. It’s not clear what sparked Thompson’s gesture or if the fans were heckling him throughout the game. Thompson had a strong night before making the gesture, finishing with 19 points and 14 rebounds in the win against the Nets. Warriors star Stephen Curry says it ‘was a little weird’ playing Cavaliers without LeBron James Thompson’s fine is relatively small in comparison to punishments a few other NBA players have faced in recent weeks. Warriors forward Kevin Durant was hit with a $25,000 fine last month for telling a fan to “watch the f—ing game and shut the f— up.” Clippers guard Patrick Beverley also received a $25,000 punishment for throwing the ball at a Mavericks fan.
