The wonderful thing about small charities is that they have a real sense of belonging to a small community with common aims. This sense of “ownership” is the key to unlocking a fortune in gifts in Wills.”Other speakers include Chis Dormer, Head of Business Development at Localgiving, Sharon Orr from Provident Financial Group, Linda Pawlowski from the FSI, representatives from the Lloyds Bank Foundation, The Jane Tomlinson Appeal and Leeds Community Foundation for a Trust and Foundations panel and Susan Morgan from the Tony Elischer Foundation.Conference places are open to charities with an annual turnover under £1.5 million.

Farmers and Motorists Must Share the Road and Be Safe

first_imgHome News Feed Farmers and Motorists Must Share the Road and Be Safe Farmers and Motorists Must Share the Road and Be Safe SHARE Farmers and Motorists Must Share the Road and Be Safe SHARE A scene described in Craig Morgan’s song “International Harvester” is being played out across the Midwest on rural roads:3 miles of cars layin on their horns Fallin on deaf ears of cornLined up behind me like a big parade Off late to work, road raged jerksShoutin obscene words, flippin me the birdWith planting season getting started, farm equipment can be found on local, county, and state highways almost any time of the day and night.Sixty percent of traffic fatalities occur on rural roads, so it is time for farmers and drivers to be careful.  Mark Seib, a soybean farmer from Poseyville, IN, asks drivers to be patient when they come upon farm equipment on the road, “We don’t want to be on the road any longer than we need to be, to move from field to field. If we pay attention to drivers and they pay attention to us, we should be able to make this a much less hazardous season.”With 5.1 million acres of soybeans to plant in Indiana, farmers face a daunting task to get the crop in with Mother Nature being less than  cooperative.  Seib warns drivers to slow down when approaching farm equipment on the road, “Top speed on some of this equipment is 30 mph, and drivers are traveling in cars at 50 to 60 mph. That is a big speed adjustment that has to be made.”  Seib warns that farm equipment may be on the road at any time of day as farmers are working long hours to get the crop planted, “Our window of opportunity is very narrow during planting season because of changing weather patterns, so that’s why you see farmers out working late at night.” He warns motorists, “Be especially careful when approaching a tractor at night because we’re slower moving than highway traffic.” In addition, he warns that farm equipment may be wider than anticipated or may be towing other pieces of equipment behind it, “Stay as far away from the equipment as you can; this might mean you have to pull off the road to let the equipment pass.”Seib, who is also a director on the United Soybean Board, urges farmers to also be aware of what is going on around them and be courteous to other drivers, “As farmers, we need to respect drivers; and, if we see we have a long line of cars behind us, we need to find a place to pull over and let traffic get around us.” He said both parties have a responsibility to be safe and courteous —  a sentiment also conveyed in Morgan’s song, “So just smile and wave and tip your hat to the man up on the tractor.”center_img Previous articleMeat Myths, Fact or FictionNext articleFarmer Testifies About Proposed EPA Water Rule Gary Truitt By Gary Truitt – Apr 27, 2014 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Students and faculty at the TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine have come together to find a solution to this evolving pandemic.Dr. Mohanakrishnan Sathyamoorthy, the department chair of internal medicine at the medical school, said the research group was “inspired by the effect COVID-19 had on the city of Fort Worth.”Beginning in early March, Sathyamoorthy created a hypothesis focusing on a different approach to treating cytokine storms that lead to the deadly inflammation in many COVID-19 patients.“We feel that we have an opportunity to impact the future of clinical discoveries that occur in the city of Fort Worth,” said Sathyamoorthy.Sathyamoorthy had conversations with Dr. Stuart D. Flynn, the founding dean of the medical school, about faculty members and other physicians who might be interested in the research group.By August, Flynn said the group had “developed three new proposals around COVID-19 that they planned to study targeting how COVID-19 invades the human body and how the body normally responds.”Flynn added that the group now has “several partnerships within the city of Fort Worth and a partnership with India.”The group also expanded its possible treatment targets beyond COVID-19 and is looking at how what they develop could help patients with inflammatory diseases. “We are really hopeful with the hypotheses we have come up with that we are able to look at response patterns with patients that have a history of autoimmune diseases,” said Sathyamoorthy.The group has also moved forward with its research and applied its first proposal of findings to the Food and Drug Administration to be able to repurpose currently available drugs to fight COVID-19. To learn more about the Fort Worth Clinical Sciences Working Group, watch Flynn and Sathyamoorthy’s FWMD Live discussion on what areas of COVID-19 their research will focus on, clinical trials and more.

Condell Road development not the answer to housing crisis

first_imgLimerick on Covid watch list Advertisement TAGSLimerick City and CountyNewspolitics Facebook Linkedin Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow WhatsAppcenter_img TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type! Print Condell Road housing development, Pat O’Neill pictured at the proposed site by Limerick City and County Council for 43 Housing Units. Picture: Keith WisemanA standalone housing scheme on the outskirts of Limerick city with “no proper infrastructure and no facilities” will not work.That’s according to community activist Pat O’Neill who says there has been a huge outcry over the proposed housing scheme development on the Condell Road with 50 objections lodged, including one from Clonmacken Residents Association.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Pat, who represents the residents’ group, has coordinated meetings between residents and councillors following local concern over the proposed development.One of the main objections from the people of the Northside to this 43-unit social housing scheme, he explained, is the location of the development.He claims there are no facilities convenient to the proposed site and that it is “isolated and situated on a flood plain with no metropolitan bus stop nearby and no provision for one either as part of the proposal”.“We rallied together to challenge this knee-jerk idea of the council officials. If history tells us anything is that a sole housing scheme with no proper infrastructure and no facilities will not work.“Everything is wrong with this proposed development. We want to learn from the mistakes of the past. We welcome a new housing scheme for the area but not as a knee-jerk reaction to the current housing crisis. Let’s do it right and proper so that everyone stands to benefit,” he declared.A spokesman for Limerick City and County Council said it was incorrect to say that the houses would be built in a flood zone as the planned location was not subject to flooding.The site of the proposed development is located approximately 800 metres, around a ten-minute walk to the Jetland retail hub area, which is serviced by public transport.“The Council believes it is important to ensure that the future residents of this development have adequate social and community infrastructure within a reasonable walking distance of their homes.“The general area is a location of planned future development with an existing permission on adjoining lands for around 400 new housing units to be developed by commercial entities. New bus routes tend to follow demand, and as the population in this area increases, public transport links to the city may be developed by Bus Eireann,” the spokesman added.
