DONEGAL FARMERS CHARGED €500K IN SINGLE FARM PAYMENT PENALTIES

first_imgFianna Fáil’s Seanad Spokesperson on Agriculture, Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill, has revealed that farmers in Co Donegal were forced to pay out nearly €500,000 in penalties under the Single Farm Payment scheme in 2013.Senator O’DomhnaillIn reply to questions from Fianna Fáil, the Department of Agriculture has said admitted that more than €5m was taken in penalties from farm payments last year.Farmers in Co Donegal were hit with among the highest level of penalties in the country, totalling an extortionate €499,118. Senator Ó Domhnaill said the hefty fines are causing real hardship to farmers across Co Donegal.“These fines are extremely harsh and totally unnecessary in most cases. Many of the penalties imposed are for innocent errors made because the process is overly complicated and bureaucratic,” said Senator Ó Domhnaill.“I know many smaller farmers across Donegal who are already struggling with cuts to supports and increased operating costs. On top of all of this, they are being hit with hefty fines for errors mainly caused by the unreasonable level of red tape they must go through to receive their Single Farm Payment.“It’s disgraceful that in Minister Coveney continues to allow Donegal farmers to pay the highest price when it comes to cuts and penalties. It’s further evidence of the Minister’s failure to stand up for the smaller farmers across the North West who are crippled by cuts to supports and unnecessary bills.” The Donegal Senator said many local farmers are becoming increasingly distressed about the high level of bureaucracy, penalties and inspections for extremely trivial issues.He added that many are choosing not to apply for supports because of the enormous amount of paperwork and procedures involved. Others are fearful of being hit with a penalty because of a minor mistake.“This penalty system is a blunt instrument that makes no consideration of innocent errors and why they occurred. I am appealing to Minister Coveney to immediately review the scale of these penalties with a view to cancelling them or reducing them dramatically.“I am also calling on the Minister to ensure that where innocent errors were made that were not the fault of the farmers themselves, the money taken from them be repaid in full,” said Senator Ó Domhnaill. DONEGAL FARMERS CHARGED €500K IN SINGLE FARM PAYMENT PENALTIES was last modified: June 6th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:donegalSENATOR BRIAN O DOMHNAILLsingle farm paymentslast_img read more

Senate approves altered Patriot Act

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Critics held their ground. A December filibuster led by Sen. Russell Feingold, D-Wis., and joined by several libertarian-leaning Republicans, forced the Bush administration to agree to modest new curbs on the government’s power to probe library, bank and other records. Feingold insisted those new protections are cosmetic. “Americans want to defeat terrorism and they want the basic character of this country to survive and prosper,” he said. “They want both security and liberty, and unless we give them both – and we can if we try – we have failed.” Some lawmakers who voted for the package acknowledged deep reservations about the power it would grant to any president. “Our support for the Patriot Act does not mean a blank check for the president,” said Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada, who voted to pass the bill package. “What we tried to do on a bipartisan basis is have a better bill. It has been improved.” Not enough even for the bill’s chief sponsor in the Senate, Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter, R-Pa. After prolonged negotiations produced a House-Senate compromise, Specter urged his colleagues to pass it even as he promised to introduce a new measure and hold hearings on how to fix it. For now, Bush and his Republican allies savored a significant victory. For months, their tough-on-terror image has been tarnished by the revelation that the president authorized a secret domestic wiretapping program. The report in December gave Democrats ammunition for their charge that the Bush administration had run amok in its zeal to root out terrorists. With the help of some Republicans, they blocked a vote on whether to renew the law before 16 provisions expired on Dec. 31. GOP leaders were unable to break the gridlock, so Congress opted instead to extend the deadline twice while negotiations continued. In the end, the White House and the Republicans broke the stalemate by crafting a second measure that would curb some powers of law enforcement officials seeking information. Both will be sent as a package to Bush. This second bill – in effect, an amendment to the measure renewing the 16 provisions – would add new protections to the 2001 antiterror law in three areas. It would: Give recipients of court-approved subpoenas for information in terrorist investigations the right to challenge a requirement that they refrain from telling anyone. Eliminate a requirement that an individual provide the FBI with the name of a lawyer consulted about a National Security Letter, which is a demand for records issued by investigators. Clarify that most libraries are not subject to demands in those letters for information about suspected terrorists. Passed in the weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the original Patriot Act expanded the government’s surveillance and prosecutorial powers against suspected terrorists, their associates and financiers. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – The Senate on Thursday gave its blessing to the renewal of the USA Patriot Act after adding new privacy protections designed to strike a better balance between civil liberties and the government’s power to root out terrorists. The 89-10 vote marked a bright spot in President George W. Bush’s troubled second term as his approval ratings dipped over the war in Iraq and his administration’s response to Hurricane Katrina. Renewing the act, Bush and congressional Republicans said, was key to preventing more terror attacks in the United States. Bush applauded the Senate for overcoming “partisan attempts to block its passage.” The House is expected to approve the two-bill package next week and send it to the president, who will sign it before 16 provisions expire Friday. “This bill will allow our law enforcement officials to continue to use the same tools against terrorists that are already used against drug dealers and other criminals, while safeguarding the civil liberties of the American people,” Bush said in a statement from India. last_img read more

YouTube Releases Its 90-Minute, User-Generated Documentary Film For Free

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… john paul titlow Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Last summer, YouTube embarked an ambitious film project of the sort that is only possible in the 21st century. They asked thousands of people all over the world to document their experiences on a single day and upload the footage. The result, titled “Life in a Day,” is a 90-minute film directed by Kevin Macdonald and produced by Ridley Scott. It documents human life on Earth for one day, insofar as such a thing is possible within a span of 90 minutes. The movie, which has already premiered at a few festivals, is now available in its entirety on YouTube.When the project was first underway, ReadWriteWeb’s own Curt Hopkins questioned whether it was truly possible to effectively document life in a single day with constraints such as the inherent length of a feature film and YouTube’s own terms of service restrictions. Such a task would seem to be impossible, but a project of this nature can at least provide a snapshot of life for a small sample of human beings across the planet. We’ll leave a more in-depth critique of the film up to the movie critics, but if nothing else, it’s a very interesting concept, made possibly only by digital technology and the Web. Macdonald and Scott pieced together their creation from 4,500 hours of footage uploaded to YouTube, all of it purportedly recorded on July 24, 2010. Even six years prior, gathering that much footage from so many geographically dispersed locations would have required a huge budget, large film crew and extensive air travel. In this case, the project was backed by a giant tech company who can afford to bring on award-winning talent to help piece the whole thing together. That ability sure made the finished product looked nice, but we can imagine a similar approach being used by amateur filmmakers, as well as budding professionals, who now have history’s largest, most distributed film crew at their disposal. center_img Related Posts Tags:#news#web#YouTube Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

Scientists Reconnect With Cluster Mission

first_imgEurope’s Cluster mission is back in the fold after controllers fixed a glitch that would have seriously curtailed its ability to do science. Cluster is comprised of four identical satellites that have been studying Earth’s space environment and its interaction with the solar wind since 2000. They pirouette around each other as they orbit Earth, and data from all four are key to mapping out the space environment in 3D. Each craft carries 11 sensors, of which five make up the Wave Experiment Consortium. It was these five on satellite 3 (dubbed Samba) that failed to respond in March to ground commands. Several weeks of intense work involving scientists, controllers, and the spacecraft manufacturers traced the problem to the simultaneous locking of all five power switches on the instruments—an eventuality that designers had thought too unlikely to consider.

Keaton Jennings misses Accounting exam to play Test cricket for England

first_imgKeaton Jennings was supposed to be writing an Accounting exam on May 30. Instead, the 25 year-old was training with England’s Test team which was gearing up for the second match against Pakistan at Headingley.Jennings will walk out to open the innings with Alastair Cook on June 1 as England attempt to bounce back after losing the Lord’s Test last week.Jennings had already booked a train to London for his test but he was told he would play a Test instead, in the 11th hour. But there are of course no regrets.”I’d booked my train down to London to write a three-hour accounting paper. That’s a couple of quid down the drain! But that’s life. I wouldn’t change it for the world,” he said.”I want to play with a happy heart and a big smile on my face,” he said on the eve of the Test.”I want to enjoy this week. It might be the last Test I play – so I really want to enjoy the feeling.”Jennings’ recall is the only change in the 12-man squad for the second Test at Headingley, that starts on Friday, which the hosts must win to level the two-match series. Stoneman was clean bowled in both innings at Lord’s, scoring four and nine.The 25-year-old Jennings has played six tests for England, the last of them in August 2017 against South Africa.”Keaton Jennings showed a strong temperament in scoring a hundred on his Test match debut against India in December 2016,” national selector Ed Smith said in a statement on Monday.advertisement”Keaton has found good form in county cricket this season, including three centuries in his last seven innings (two in the First Division of the County Championship, one in the Royal London One-Day Cup).”Mark Stoneman misses out at Headingley. Mark has experienced a disappointing start to the 2018 season and had a difficult Test match at Lord’s.”Fast-bowling all-rounder Chris Woakes was part of the 12-man squad at Lord’s but missed out on selection for the starting XI.(With Reuters inputs)last_img read more
