She hails from Rosenallis and her interests vary from news, sports and politics. By Siun Lennon – 30th May 2018 Denis Lalor (left) in action for The Heath a couple of years ago; and main pic with some of tThe Heath junior players on Tuesday night A good club man will never let you down.No matter how short of players you are or if you’re struggling to get a team, there’s always a few reliables you can call on.Denis Lalor from The Heath certainly falls into that catagory. When it comes to Laois football, there is hardly anything he hasn’t done – for club or county.And with his club’s second team – who play in the Junior ‘A’ championship – playing Ballylinan in Division 3 of the league on Tuesday night, Lalor once again togged out to ensure they had a team.Now in his early 50s, by our reckoning Denis probably first played for The Heath more than 40 years ago. It’s 31 years since he captained Laois to win a Leinster U-21 title, back in 1987.He later played throughout the 1980s and 1990s for the Laois seniors where he was a regular at wing-back. He was on the side beaten in the 1991 Leinster final by Meath and captained Laois for a number of seasons too.Denis also captained the last Heath team to win a senior football championship in 1993. In more recent years, he was part of the championship-winning Junior A side in 2009 and Junior C side in 2010.Aside from playing, Denis has also been involved behind the scenes. He managed The Heath at various levels including minor and senior and has also served as Laois minor and U-21 manager.On Tuesday evening, The Heath made the trip to Ballylinan and despite their lack of numbers, they won 2-14 to 0-17, a result that keeps them in the hunt for a semi-final place.And while Denis was definitely the most experienced player on view, he had a handful of other seasoned players around him – including senior manager Barry McNamee, who kicked an impressive 1-5, long-serving senior player Aidan Bergin, Billy Hennessy and Donal Bigley.Earlier this month we also saw a father of three current players line up alongside his sons for their junior football local derby.These men are certainly frontrunners in our next team of Golden Oldies.SEE ALSO – Here’s your guide to the Laois minor footballers third Leinster championship match against Carlow Rugby Community Ten Laois based players named on Leinster rugby U-18 girls squad Twitter Charlie Flanagan on Electric Picnic: ‘I’d ask organisers to consult with community leaders’last_img read more

A Prisoner Stoned to Death

first_img News A Prisoner Stoned to Death SHARE By Daily NK – 2005.12.27 3:15pm Entire border patrol unit in North Hamgyong Province placed into quarantine following “paratyphoid” outbreak News News Facebook Twittercenter_img [imText1]In 1984, a 27-year-old political prisoner working as a mechanic at the transportation unit, Tongpo Sector, Settlement No.13, stole a guard jeep (plate No. 580131) and succeeded in fleeing to China, leaving the jeep by the riverside. However, he was arrested and repatriated back to North Korea by the Chinese authorities. The settlement supervisor was furious, saying that the incident was a personal insult against Kim Il Sung, the Great Leader.The prisoner had wire pierced through his nose and large nails hammered through his toes and legs. Then, the other prisoners were forced to stone him to death.I did not actually witness the execution myself, but it was common knowledge in the settlement because the commanding officers often reminded the prisoners of this execution as a warning. I watched similar public execution when I was student, twice in Hamhung city and once in Chongjin city.

Contact us at [email protected] News North Korea has sent a positive responseto Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invitation for leader Kim Jong Eun to attend70th anniversary celebrations of the Soviet Union’s victory over Germanyin World War Two, Russia’s Foreign Ministry announced on January 21st. Of Kim’s response, Foreign Minister SergeyLavrov said “the first signal was positive.” This statement echoed similar remarks by Putin’s foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov,  last month thatMoscow had received the “first signals from Pyongyang” of Kim’spotential attendance for the May 9th event.   Lavrov elaborated that including China’sPresident Xi Jinping, approximately 20 world leaders have confirmed theirattendance for the festivities, with more expected in the considerable timeremaining until the events’ commencement in just over four months. Among those on the long list of invitees, Ushakov stated that “all countries thattook part in the anti-Hitler coalition are invited,” adding that invitations were also extended to Russia’s“closest allies,” including its BRICS  partners, for the event, held every ten years since1995 and utilized as an opportunity to bring world leaders together. In 2005, Russia invited the leaders of 53nations to mark the 60th anniversary, including then-President  of South Korea Roh MooHyun, and then-President of the U.S. GeorgeW. Bush, but  former North Korean leader Kim Jong Il did not make thetrip. Kim Jong Il’s first official diplomatictrip was to China, but his son has yet to make his first trip there–or anyother nation–as a leader, sending Choe Ryong Hae, a secretary of the ChosunWorkers’ Party,  to China in his stead in 2013, and again to Russia withthe same purpose in 2014. If this “positive signal” translates into Kim Jong Eun making the trip to Russia in May, predictions are for North Korea’s conventional ties China to sour, a transformation of North Korea’s dynamics with other nations,and/or a reversion to the 1970s landscape of the North taking advantage of disputes between its two powerful neighbors.

Canadian equity funds see positive results in Q2

first_img Facebook LinkedIn Twitter For the second quarter in a row this year, Canadian equity funds saw positive results with natural resources funds leading the way, according to preliminary performance numbers released by Toronto-based Morningstar Canada on Thursday. Eighteen of 21 Morningstar Canada Fund Indices were up during Q2 with 11 of those funds seeing an increase of 3% or more. The best performer of the quarter was the energy equity category of the Morningstar Canada Fund Index with an increase of 13.7%. Another strong performer was the Morningstar Natural Resources Equity Fund Index, which came in third overall. IE Staff “Fund returns in these two categories benefited from oil and gas stocks that rose with escalating oil prices, as the current conflict in Iraq sent oil prices higher in June in light of uncertainty surrounding the country’s oil supply,” said Vishal Mansukhani, Morningstar manager research analyst. “Iraq has become an important oil producer over the past few years, pumping more than 3 million barrels each day.” The second best performing fund category of the quarter was Precious Metals Equity, which saw an increase of 12.1%. Among the top 10 performers for Q2 were the five domestic equity fund indices. The purely domestic Canadian Small/Mid Cap Equity and Canadian Equity categories were up 6.2% and 5.8%, respectively, while the Canadian Focused Small/Mid Cap Equity and Canadian Focused Equity categories, which can allocate up to 49% of their holdings in foreign stocks, increased by 4.7% and 3.8%, respectively. The Morningstar Canadian Dividend & Income Equity Fund Index was up 5% for the quarter. For the most part, foreign equity funds also saw positive results. For example, the Morningstar Emerging Markets Equity Fund Index increased 3.2% for the quarter; Asia Pacific ex-Japan Equity was up 2.3%; and U.S. Equity increased by 1.5%. The weaker returns were mostly due to currency effects as the Canadian dollar appreciated against most major currencies during this time. The only indices to end up in the red for the quarter were Greater China Equity and U.S. Small/Mid Cap Equity, with decreases of 0.3% each, and European Equity, down 1.8%. European Equity was also the worst performer for the month of June with a 1.5% decrease. Share this article and your comments with peers on social medialast_img read more

In either body style, the Cayenne can reach 100 km/h from zero in just 4.5 seconds, pressing onto a top speed of 270 km/h.

Tulips announces acceleration in production of affordable ICMR, NIV approved swabs

first_img Share Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals releases first “Comprehensive Textbook of COVID-19” News COVID-19 testingICMR approved swabsNIV approved swabsTest kit swabsTULIPSVTM kit Read Article Comments (0) Test kit swabs are one of many medical, personal protection equipment in short supply globallyWith COVID-19 cases rising fast, Tulips today, announced that it is accelerating production of special, affordable ICMR and NIV approved swabs to help overcome the world’s shortage of test kits. Test kit swabs are one of many medical and personal protection equipment in short supply globally.The pandemic can’t be fought without widespread testing to find out who has the disease. And, it’s critical for finding those people who may be spreading the virus with or without showing all the symptoms. Millions of testing swabs are needed across world, and so Tulips is focussed on innovation and scaling up the production in record time, to tackle the situation.Revised ICMR guidelines asks all symptomatic and asymptomatic high-risk contacts of confirmed cases to be tested. Even under these guidelines, India may need to step up to five lakhs tests a day, as the country opens up and further spread seems inevitable.While Tulips has already supplied more than 10 million affordable swabs to major VTM kit producers present throughout India within a month, it is now keen to meet the global demand. Most of the states are using low cost Indian special Swabs, as these have helped them to cut their Test Kit costs by almost 40 per cent to 60 per cent.Besides producing sufficient swabs to meet the surging testing needs, the company is keen on partnering with governments to share their processing expertise and donate free swabs to those in need.Accelerating testing is an integral part of the response mechanism to combat COVID-19. For instance, the US has recently accelerated production of tests as labs process as many as 450,000 tests a day. As India reopens the economy, testing will be key to its wider success.The intent of Tulips is to fulfil the critical national demand in nasal and throat swabs, a key component in fighting COVID-19 war and rely less on supplies from other countries, in these testing times. With rising number of COVID-19 cases, the company shifted focus to affordable swabs, as domestically produced swabs would cost one-tenth the imported swabs.“Shortage of key kits hurt COVID-19 diagnosis. And, enhanced testing is the only way out to tackle the novel coronavirus global pandemic till a cure or a vaccine is found. Tulips understands this well and is trying to ensure that it supplies Swabs to other countries in Asia and Africa as well. The situation also demands more innovation for finding faster and cheaper testing methods, to scale up the testing in our country. As swabs are going to be an integral part of any COVID-19 diagnostics test kit, we are willing to collaborate and partner with any Indian company, institute or innovators doing research on making the tests faster, cheaper, and may need to have special swabs developed,” said Rahul Jain, Partner, Tulips.
