UK coronavirus hospital deaths rise by 847

first_imgBritain recorded its highest daily death toll on April 9, when the government said 980 people had died. Since then the daily figure has declined slightly and was under 800 for much of this week. The UK’s coronavirus hospital death toll rose by 847 yesterday, meaning 14,576 people have now died in Britain’s hospitals from the virus. (AFP via Getty Images) whatsapp The UK is only the sixth country in the world to report more than 100,000 cases, along with the US, Spain, Italy, France and Germany. Coronavirus emerged in China in December and has now infected more than 2m people around the world, killing more than 140,000. UK coronavirus hospital deaths rise by 847 to 14,576 The number is slightly lower than the daily rise of 861 reported for the day ending Wednesday. The previous daily rise had been 761. “We were too slow with a number of things,” Anthony Costello, professor of international child health and director of the UCL Institute for Global Health, told Parliament’s Health and Social Care Committee today. Announcing the latest figures, the Department of Health said: “As of 5pm on 16 April, of those hospitalised in the UK who tested positive for coronavirus, 14,576 have sadly died.” As the figures only cover hospital deaths however, the real number is likely considerably higher. Europe is at the centre of the virus, although the US has suffered the most deaths, with more than 34,000.center_img It said that “341,551 people have been tested of which 108,692 tested positive.” The department added that there had been 21,328 tests on 16 April. Friday 17 April 2020 3:01 pm whatsapp Costello suggested there were “system errors” early on that “led us to have probably the highest death rates in Europe”. He added: “We could see 40,000 deaths by the time it’s over.” Costello advocated wide-scale testing of the sort the UK government is yet to achieve. The government has not yet found an antibody test that is suitably accurate. The government says it has acted according to the best scientific advice throughout the outbreak. The rise in the UK’s death toll comes as the government faces accusations that it acted too slowly in tackling the virus. Share Harry Robertson Show Comments ▼last_img read more

Dunleavy’s midyear budget bill would cut VPSO funds

first_imgAlaska Native Government & Policy | Interior | Public Safety | State GovernmentDunleavy’s midyear budget bill would cut VPSO fundsFebruary 1, 2019 by Robyne, KUAC-Fairbanks Share:Gov. Mike Dunleavy speaks about his proposals to revise the state’s criminal justice laws, Jan. 23, 2019. (Photo by Andrew Kitchenman/KTOO and Alaska Public Media)Gov. Michael Dunleavy has proposed pulling back $3 million in unspent money for the Village Public Safety Officer program. The cuts would help pay for larger Alaska Permanent Fund dividends, among other items. The proposal is in Senate Bill 39.Dunleavy wants to implement the midyear budget change right away. Some Alaska lawmakers, like Democratic Sen. Scott Kawasaki of Fairbanks, expressed their dismay that the money would be cut.“This governor campaigned on public safety and crime prevention,” Kawasaki said. “Why are they taking money out of rural Alaska? Isn’t the life of a rural Alaskan, and isn’t public safety in rural Alaska, just as important as public safety in downtown Anchorage or downtown Mat-Su?”The VPSO program has had difficulty recruiting in recent years, leaving some smaller towns with a diminished law enforcement presence. There are numerous vacancies for Village Public Safety Officers in Interior Alaska villages.Sen. Scott Kawasaki, D-Fairbanks. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)Funding for the VPSO program is determined by the Legislature and managed by the Alaska State Troopers. The funds are awarded to participating regional Native nonprofit corporations through grant requests. Those Native nonprofits are the employers for the VPSOs in their region.In contrast to the VPSO program cuts, the midyear budget revisions would give Alaska State Troopers about $3.6 million more for salary adjustments intended to help retain and recruit officers.At a presentation of the supplemental budget requests to the Senate Finance Committee on Tuesday, Sen. Lyman Hoffman, D-Bethel, said he was surprised that the VPSO program didn’t get the same recommendation as the Troopers did.“The two items, to me, are directly related,” Hoffman said.Donna Arduin, the governor’s budget director, told the committee that because many VPSO positions have not been filled, there was $2.8 million of unspent money in the VPSO program that could go to other areas.Democratic Sen. Jesse Kiehl of Juneau believes that money should stay with village contractors trying to recruit officers.“If in fact these positions are unfillable, there’s no difference to the treasury in leaving the money in or taking it out. But deleting it (from the budget) says, ‘Stop trying.’ Deleting it says, ‘Don’t work on public safety with VPSOs anymore.’”The governor will submit a formal operating budget proposal for next fiscal year on Feb. 13.Watch the latest legislative coverage from Gavel Alaska: Share this story:last_img read more

House supply shortage lifts prices in June

first_img whatsapp Wednesday 8 July 2015 11:17 pm House supply shortage lifts prices in June HOUSE prices climbed faster than incomes last month as demand outstripped supply.The average stock of houses per housing surveyor has fallen to its lowest since 1978, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ (RICS) said today. The decline in homes per survey reflects a lack of supply coming to the market. Surveyors’ price growth expectations over the next three months is now the highest since April 2014.House prices were 9.6 per cent higher in June than in the same month last year, Halifax said yesterday. The brunt of continuous house price rises has been felt in London. Between 2010 and 2015, Greater London has experienced substantially faster growth in house price per square metre than elsewhere in Britain, with an average increase of 45 per cent. Other house price indices, such as a recent one from Nationwide and another published today by LSL property services, show price growth running at 3.3 per cent and 4.1 per cent respectively. While lower, these levels of price growth still exceed pay.“Supply remains very tight with the stock of homes available for sale currently at record low levels. This shortage has been a key factor maintaining house price growth at a robust pace so far in 2015,” said Martin Ellis, an economist from Halifax.“Economic growth, higher employment, increasing real earnings growth and very low mortgage rates are all supporting housing demand with signs of a recent modest pick-up in demand.” Express KCS Sharecenter_img Read This Next’The View’: Meghan McCain Calls VP Kamala Harris a ‘Moron’ for BorderThe WrapRick Leventhal to Exit Fox News Just as His Wife Kelly Leaves ‘RealThe WrapTop 10 Fried Chicken Spots in the U.S.GayotRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapNewsmax Rejected Matt Gaetz When Congressman ‘Reached Out’ for a JobThe WrapAdrian Grenier Agrees That Nate Is the ‘Real Villain’ in ‘The Devil WearsThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

PortDara girls fall to strong Wicklow side in League Final

first_img Kelly and Farrell lead the way as St Joseph’s claim 2020 U-15 glory Facebook By Dáire McDonald – 20th December 2019 Facebook GAA Here are all of Wednesday’s Laois GAA results Pinterest The PortDara Falcon U-18 Women’s Rugby team took on Wicklow in the league final recently.All the great work in the early part of the season lead to a league final against Wicklow in Energia Park, Donnybrook – the scene was set for a cracker of the game in cold but near perfect conditions.Right from the kick off the PortDara girls were under pressure with Wicklow mixing up their game between the backs and forwards but our girls put in a defensive display which any team would be proud of.They were awesome in their one on one tackling to prevent Wicklow from building momentum and the close in group tackling held the ball up and turned over possession time and time again.Eventually the pressure told as Wicklow put together a period of possession of close in handling to cross for the first score of the game but this went unconverted for a 5-0 lead after 25 minutes.This score spurred the PortDara team into action and from the kick off they gained their own territory and it now was time for Wicklow to defend … and defend they did, there was a period where there was a carbon copy of the early part of the game.Attacking the Bective end last desperate tackles prevented a score until a clever pick from the back of the ruck saw PortDara cross for the equalising score and a conversion to take the lead 7-5 as the clocked ticked towards half time.The scoring wasn’t finished as Wicklow came back up the pitch and following a penalty kicked to the corner with a driving maul from a lineout, which was again well defended, the ball was spread wide left and repelled and then back to the right and with the defence stretched Wicklow crossed for a try, the extra points were added and Wicklow led 12-7 at the break.The second half was more of the same with defence on top from both sides as attack after attack were repelled at both ends of the pitch.The bench from both sides were needed as the effort started to show but the intensity didn’t drop – it was a compelling match to watch and was a brilliant advert for girls rugby in the province.It was 25 minutes into the half until the next score was tagged on when Wicklow opted to kick for the posts after failing to break through the black wall of the PortDara defence .. two scores were now needed as Wicklow went into the final 10 minutes leading 15-7.PortDara built again and from the kick off worked their way deep into the Wicklow half only to turn the ball over as the line was getting closer following each phase.The dangerous Wicklow backs then started to make some inroads as the PortDara girls started to tire and, with the number of available players down through injury, the reserves on the bench had been used.Two late converted tries by Wicklow put up a gloss on the final score of 29-7 which in no way reflective of the effort that was put in.The parents, coaches and officials could not be prouder of the girls and despite the tears there were smiles and the realisation that they were in the final where they deserved to be and they will be back to challenge for honours very very soon.As a foot note, credit to Wicklow who won all three final yesterday at u-14, u-16 and U-18.The PortDara Falcons u18 Girls teamSEE ALSO – Christmas Spirit leads the way as local community raise funds for the ‘Help Jamie Walk’ campaign Pinterest WhatsApp Twitter GAA GAA PortDara girls fall to strong Wicklow side in League Final Home Sport Rugby PortDara girls fall to strong Wicklow side in League Final SportRugby WhatsApp RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Previous articleNew legislation on gift vouchers ‘good news’ for consumers ahead of ChristmasNext articleSheep kills ‘no laughing matter’ dog owners warned Dáire McDonald TAGSPortarlington RFCPortdara falcons Twitter 2020 U-15 ‘B’ glory for Ballyroan-Abbey following six point win over Killeshinlast_img read more

New Police Station at Falmouth Set For Completion in January 2007

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Construction of the new Falmouth Police Station in Trelawny is far advanced and should be completed by January 2007.Project Manager in the Ministry of National Security, with responsibility for the maintenance and upgrading of police stations, Willie Taylor, told JIS News that, “construction is proceeding at a pace where the main building is roughly 30 to 40 per cent complete and the barracks area is about 85 per cent complete”.“The designs for services such as electricity, telephone, water and sewage have been done and approved,” he added.Citing Cricket World Cup 2007 to be held at the new Stadium in Trelawny, he said it was necessary to have the Falmouth Police Station ready at that time, as the event was expected to create a demand on the resources of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).“The residents in and around Falmouth will have for themselves, a new station and a more comfortable environment for the police, notwithstanding that Cricket World Cup is taking place. The need for a new station has long been around, and the Government has seen it fit to put this into effect and to satisfy both the needs of the community as well as those for Cricket World Cup,” he said.Mr. Taylor said that a Task Force has been working assiduously to meet the project deadline, noting that materials were brought in to facilitate the work from Sundays to Mondays in some cases, and that all the agencies involved with the project were making every effort to ensure a successful completion.“We see January 2007 as a necessary deadline and all the agencies have bought into it, and it is expected that this will be to the satisfaction of the country in general, the Police Force in particular, and all of us who are interested in progress for the welfare of the country,” he said.

Thirteen Lives, based on Thai caves rescue, to film in Australia

first_imgThirteen Lives, based on Thai caves rescue, to film in Australia The Morrison Government will provide $13 million to Imagine Entertainment and MGM to shoot the live-action feature film Thirteen Lives, about the incredible Thai caves rescue, in Queensland.The production, to be directed by legendary film-maker Ron Howard, will commence filming in March. The Gold Coast hinterland will double for Thailand.Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts, the Hon Paul Fletcher MP, said the production is expected to inject more than $96 million into the economy, directly creating around 435 jobs for cast and crew, as well as an equivalent 3400 background extra days.“Thirteen Lives will tell the remarkable story of the effort by many volunteers, including Australians, to undertake an incredibly complex rescue. And I am proud to say that this story will be told here in Australia,” Minister Fletcher said.“In addition to recording this remarkable story for posterity, the production itself will create vital job opportunities and will engage the services of an estimated 300 Australian businesses.“I understand this project will also undertake a significant amount of cutting-edge visual effects work here, a great opportunity for our local post, digital and visual effects companies.”Directed by Academy Award-winner Ron Howard, and produced by Academy Award-winner Brian Grazer, P.J. van Sandwijk, Gabrielle Tana and Karen Lunder, Thirteen Lives follows the true story of the 2018 Tham Laung cave rescue of a boys’ soccer team, trapped in a cave by heavy rain and flooding. After the team was stuck for days with no supplies and falling oxygen levels, a group from all over the world came together to work with the people of Thailand to save the boys. Among those experts were a group of divers from the United Kingdom and Australia.Ron Howard has thanked the Government for the support of the Location Incentive program and notes he is thrilled to be working in Australia.Mr Howard said, “Over the years, I’ve both enjoyed and creatively benefitted from collaborations with Australian artists and technicians in front of and behind the camera, from Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe and Chris Hemsworth to John Seale, Donald McAlpine and Andrew Rowlands and many others.”“From Thirteen Lives to the animated projected I am directing with Animal Logic in Australia, I am excited about the opportunity to film and work in Australia and dramatically expand on that list of collaborators whose sensibilities and work ethic I have long admired and respected.”MGM’s President of Physical Production, Michele Imperato said, “We thank the Federal Government and Minster Fletcher for their great support and for welcoming the Thirteen Lives production to Australia.”Thirteen Lives is supported under the Morrison Government’s $400 million boost to the Location Incentive to create a pipeline of international projects, which will generate tens of thousands of Australian jobs in the screen industry over the next seven years.You can view Ron Howard’s video welcoming the support of the Australian Government here. /Public Release.
