Carer pleads guilty to stealing €20,000 from elderly woman

first_imgA carer has pleaded guilty to stealing a total of €20,000 from an elderly woman whom she helped look after.Marjorie Gallagher appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court in Co Donegal charged with four thefts of €5,000 from 76-year-old Bridget McLaughlin. All the alleged thefts took place at the home of Ms McLaughlin of Meenmore in Dungloe.The accused woman, a 56-year-old from Maghery in Dungloe, only spoke to plead guilty to the thefts which took place between January 1st, 2016 and September 4th, 2018.No specific details of the thefts were given during the arraignment of the accused woman.Barrister for Gallagher, Mr Shane Costello, told the court that this was not a straight forward theft case.“The facts of this case are very odd and there are issues in the background that are extraordinary,” he said.He explained that Ms Gallagher had been a home-carer for Ms McLaughlin and that the thefts took place in a relatively short space of time.He asked for both a psychiatric and psychological assessment be carried out on his client as well as a probation an community service report.Ms Patricia McLaughlin, prosecution barrister, explained to Judge John Aylmer that the victim in the case was a terminally ill woman and that they were anxious to compile a victim impact statement in the case.Judge Aylmer adjourned the case until the next sitting of Letterkenny Circuit Court in November when Gallagher will be sentenced.Carer pleads guilty to stealing €20,000 from elderly woman was last modified: July 24th, 2019 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:Bridget McLaughlincarercourtdungloeMarjorie Galaghertheftlast_img read more

UN climate talks extend Kyoto Protocol

first_img11 December 2012Countries meeting at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 18) that ended in Doha, Qatar on the weekend agreed on a firm timetable to adopt a universal climate agreement by 2015, and launched a new commitment period under the Kyoto Protocol.They further agreed on a path to raise the necessary ambition to respond to climate change, endorsed the completion of new institutions, and agreed on ways to deliver scaled-up climate finance and technology to developing countries.The Kyoto Protocol, the only existing and binding agreement under which developed countries commit to cutting greenhouse gases, has been amended so that it will continue as of 1 January 2013. The first commitment period ends on 31 December 2012. The length of the second commitment period will be eight years.The agreement came two days after Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa delivered South Africa’s country statement to the conference, urging the delegates to use the Doha talks to find a global solution to the current climate change crisis.“South Africa views the second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol as the cornerstone of the Doha agreement” Molewa said.From the outset, South Africa was clear that a strengthened international climate regime was needed to ensure global reductions in greenhouse gas emissions in order to prevent climate change from undermining development of the African continent.Governments have agreed to speedily work toward a universal climate change agreement covering all countries from 2020, to be adopted by 2015, and to find ways to scale up efforts before 2020 beyond the existing pledges to curb emissions so that the world can stay below the agreed maximum 2 degrees Celsius temperature rise.Governments also agreed at the Doha summit on the completion of new infrastructure to channel technology and finance to developing nations.Korea has been endorsed as the location of the Green Climate Fund and the work plan of the Standing Committee on Finance. The Green Climate Fund is expected to start its work in Sondgo in the second half of 2013, which means it will be able to launch activities in 2014.In terms of long-term finance, developed countries were encouraged to increase their efforts to provide finance between 2013-15 at the average annual level with which they provided funds during the 2010-2012 “fast-start” finance period.Governments will in the meantime continue a work programme on long-term finance during 2013 under two co-chairs to contribute to the ongoing efforts to scale up the mobilisation of climate finance.Germany, the UK, France, Denmark, Sweden and the EU Commission announced concrete finance pledges of an estimated US$6-billion for the period up to 2015.Countries also agreed on support mechanisms for developing countries. Part of the support is a registry that will record developing country mitigation actions that seek recognition or financial support. The registry will be a flexible, dynamic, web-based platform.Parties will meet again at the next UN Climate Change Conference – COP19 – in Warsaw, Poland at the end of 2013.Source: SANews.gov.zalast_img read more

Geocachers Help Grant a Make-A-Wish® for a Geocaching Teen

For Make-A-Wish® recipient, Jared, he and his family would often pick up geocache finds between home and the hospital. His early teenage years were often spent in hospitals from Aberdeen, South Dakota to Sioux Falls, South Dakota to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. He logged smileys all around the three medical centers.He says, “When I was in the hospital I would look on the website. I would look for trackables and take them to geocaches back home with me.”  Jared123, as he’s known in the geocaching community, endured three major surgeries for a life-altering digestive issue. Through traveling to treatment, he and his family logged hundreds of miles. They tapped into geocaching to break the tension between medical procedures.Jared discovered he had been chosen for  Make-A-Wish. Make-A-Wish grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories. Jared thought about where he could go and what he could do. Many children decide to take a trip to Disneyland or spend time with their family on a vacation to Hawaii.Jared (center) with his family and Make-A-Wish volunteersJared was born in the Seattle area, and when he learned that Geocaching HQ was located in Seattle, he made his choice.Make-A-Wish organized the visit and contacted local geocachers. An event called Jared From SD Wishes for your Presence was planned to welcome him to the Northwest. And Jared wanted to meet, and geocache with, one of the most creative geocache hiders on the West Coast of the U.S: goblindust.Geocachers from several counties away showed up to greet their fellow geocacher. Jared says, “I couldn’t’ really believe how many people came there. There were 85-90 people who attended. There were a whole bunch of volunteers and businesses who donated for the event.”Jared then took to the geocaching trail, claiming, The SUPER Pages as his favorite geocache of the trip and perhaps of all time. He says, “I found some of the most unique geocaches ever, or even in the world.” To offer you some proof, geocacher goblindust has a creative geocache found in this video (we just won’t tell you which one).Jared then visited Geocaching HQ, meeting with the founders of Geocaching.com and having lunch with the people who power the experience. He also led his dad to log his first geocache—the giant treasure chest in the lobby of Geocaching HQ.Jared and his dad at Geocaching HQYou can watch Jared’s tour of Geocaching HQ in this 6 second Vine video. Jared did what any geocache might do when they leave Geocaching HQ, he went geocaching some more.Geocachers who logged the event say, “Thanks to all who put this together, the vendors who donated, and to Jared for inviting us to help make his wish!!! It was a pleasure meeting you and your parents! Enjoy your visit, and hope you enjoy all the fun caches we have to offer! Goblindust…you’re a rockstar!

The mission was simple: gather intel about the planet OV and transmit it back to Earth. But an unexpected dust storm hastily moved in and separated you from your crew. In order to save the entire crew they were ordered to leave the planet without you. The storm has now passed. Your eyes open, and you dust yourself off. It’s unbearably hot and the heat from this solar system’s sun means almost certain death if you don’t find shelter. Contacting the ship to turn around for you is paramount to your survival, but upon getting to camp you realize that the communications system was damaged in the storm. Newest adaptation of The OroValleyanTo get your SOS out there you’ll need to locate “OVAL,” the Oro Valley Astronautic Laboratory, a probe that lost all communication abilities in 1997. Once you find the probe you must raise its antenna to initiate the audio and visual tests. The success of these tests are vital to any potential communication. Pay close attention to the camera; it will point to a combination of 16 hexadecimal characters around its circumference. Compare the hex characters to an ASCII (“asky”) table provided on the cache page to translate the important message. Completing this martian Multi is a rewarding one.

Women Earn The Glory While Men Earn The Money In US Soccer

NWSL salary54.0 Sponsor appearance15.0 Ticket revenue22.9 World Cup roster bonus15.0 Subtotal without salaries240.0 Friendly wins$18.9K Olympic qualifying bonus15.0 USSF World Cup victory75.0 The men earned bonus money for every point earned in the World Cup group stage, as well as $5,500 for each group-stage match for which they were rostered. The women earned no such bonuses.The caveat here, of course, is that the women draw a salary for playing on the national team, while the men are only paid by U.S. Soccer for participation in camps, friendlies and tournaments. If the women’s salaries were replaced with the men’s bonus figures for friendlies, players would have earned $109,600 in 2015, nearly $40,000 more than their $72,000 national team salary — and that’s before we include any other bonuses or fees they’d receive for being named to tournament rosters and other non-game events.3The men’s national team did earn a salary from U.S. Soccer for a period of time, because of the lack of a professional domestic league in the United States from 1984 to 1996.While U.S. Soccer is not responsible for FIFA prize money, it’s worth noting that the men’s prize money for losing in the round of 16 amounted to $9 million. The women’s prize money for winning the whole tournament was $2 million. If we distribute these totals evenly across the 23-player rosters, Lloyd’s and Solo’s earnings increase to $326,976 each. Dempsey’s and Howard’s, meanwhile, increase to $819,326 and $789,799, respectively. The 2014 men’s World Cup generated approximately $4.8 billion in revenue for FIFA. Revenue for the 2015 Women’s World Cup have yet to be reported but will certainly be much lower.On top of the specific financial disparities laid out above, the women’s inability to specify what kind of field surface they play on, when such consideration is offered to the men, is surely a sore spot, one that blew up in December when the USWNT boycotted a friendly over concerns about the quality of the artificial turf at Honolulu’s Aloha Stadium.Another footnote in the memo of understanding concerns travel arrangements. The women’s national team is booked to fly economy for the majority of its travel, while the men exclusively fly business class.Granted, the women’s and men’s national teams both collectively agreed to these respective compensation structures — and since the men are neither salaried by the federation nor play in a league owned and operated by the federation, it could be argued that their compensation should be distributed differently than the women. But it is interesting to observe the discrepancies in areas where one would assume they would be equitably compensated. Also, the USWNT players’ complaint to the EEOC could expose the lack of transparency by U.S. Soccer relative to the revenues the women’s national team generates, which may have artificially depressed the players’ market value.The court will decide whether U.S. Soccer’s memo of understanding with the players union is a valid labor agreement at the end of May; dates for potential action on the EEOC complaint have yet to be determined. Regardless of either outcome, it appears that the U.S. women’s national team has a real case regarding the gender pay gap. Negotiations for their next collective bargaining agreement will continue all year, and the likes of Lloyd and Solo intend to leverage their recent success for better treatment by their employers. The U.S. women’s national soccer team won the World Cup title in 2015 — an achievement never equaled by a U.S. men’s team — but the glory doesn’t come with full benefits. On Wednesday, five women’s team players filed a complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission claiming that the U.S. Soccer federation engaged in wage discrimination by paying the women far less than the men.The complaint, filed by Hope Solo, Carli Lloyd, Megan Rapinoe, Becky Sauerbrunn and Alex Morgan, says the men’s team takes home far more than the women’s team for no discernible reason other than being male. After the filing, the soccer federation issued a statement wherein it highlighted its support for women’s soccer in the United States and across the globe. It did not address the specific allegations of pay discrepancy. The complaint also contains the minutes from a federation meeting in which the budget shows the federation expects the women’s team to produce more revenue than the men’s team in fiscal years 2016 and 2017.Based on our findings — using financial statements released by the soccer federation for fiscal year 2015, along with the USWNT’s collective bargaining agreement and memo of understanding released in court after the federation sued the players union over an earlier negotiating dispute — top men’s players earned almost twice as much as top women’s players from the federation during their respective World Cup years, despite the women’s victory in 2015 and the men’s early knockout elimination in 2014.We compared the differences in how male and female players are compensated by the federation under similar working conditions — namely, preparations for and participation in the 2014 FIFA men’s World Cup in Brazil and the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada. Because not every member of a national team is paid the same, and to properly compare apples to apples, we focused on two similar sets of players from the women’s and men’s national teams — Lloyd and Solo for the women, and Clint Dempsey and Tim Howard for the men. Here, we have two major goalscoring threats and two veteran goalkeepers who played every minute (or, in Dempsey’s case, all but three minutes) of their respective World Cups.The first thing we need to do is set aside the salaries that Lloyd and Solo earn, because USWNT compensation works a little differently than setups across the world. Typically, a club pays a player a salary, and a national federation compensates the player for caps and other appearances. For the USWNT, however, it’s the federation that pays the club salary; the women then draw a second salary for their national play — a departure from the U.S. men. (If you think this arrangement is odd, you’re not wrong. The National Women’s Soccer League is owned and operated by the federation, which pays the club salaries for national team players to offset costs for club owners.)In the case of Lloyd and Solo, this salary totaled $126,000 in 2015 — $72,000 for falling into the “Tier I” salary bracket (reserved for veterans who also were named to the 23-player World Cup roster) and an additional $54,000 for playing in the NWSL.1Should a player wish to play for a club outside the U.S., she forfeits that portion of the salary. In 2015, however, all national team players did play in the NWSL.Now that we have salaries separated out, we can see from the collective bargaining agreement and memo of understanding that the women’s national team is paid in a similar fashion as the men: appearance fees for U.S. Soccer sponsors; bonuses for qualifying for major tournaments (along with bonuses based on tournament finishes); a share of ticket revenues in friendlies played on U.S. soil; and bonuses for winning those friendlies. The USWNT also earned a $1.8 million bonus for the Victory Tour, 10 friendly matches played in the U.S. from August through December of last year. INCOME SOURCELLOYD/SOLO 2015 EARNINGS For each friendly, including the send-off series, the men earned between $7,500 and $14,100 per win, based on the FIFA ranking of the opponent. They earned between $5,000 and $6,500 for draws and $4,000 for a loss. The women earned $1,350 for wins, receiving no bonus for draws or losses. Total366.0 The men’s bonus for being named to the final 23-player World Cup roster was $55,000 each; the women earned $15,000 each. This is an itemized breakdown of the projected non-salary earnings for Lloyd and Solo in 2015, based on all the data contained in the memo of understanding. When it comes to shared bonus pools, we assume the money is being divided evenly among all players on the roster. However, that may not be true, as there is no language in either the collective bargaining agreement or the memo of understanding that would stipulate even distribution. In fact, based on comments Solo made in her 2013 memoir, veteran players may get a larger share of the bonus pools.Below we compare Lloyd’s and Solo’s estimated 2015 earnings with Dempsey’s and Howard’s earnings for 2014, when the U.S. men’s team lost in the World Cup’s round of 16. The men’s earnings are based on U.S. Soccer’s financial statements for fiscal year 2015 (which ran from April 1, 2014, to March 31, 2015).2Women’s earnings are projected estimates for fiscal year 2016, which ran from April 1, 2015, to March 31, 2016. Lloyd and Solo: $240,019 eachDempsey: $428,022Howard: $398,495Dempsey is pocketing almost $200,000 more than Lloyd; Howard gets almost $160,000 more than Solo. How can that be? (U.S. Soccer declined to comment for this story.)While the men’s team’s bargaining agreement with U.S. Soccer is confidential, Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl discovered some figures before the 2014 World Cup that would account for at least some of the disparity:The men’s shared bonus for qualifying for Brazil totaled $2 million. The women’s total qualifying bonus for Canada was $300,000. The men played 16 qualifying games, whereas the women played only five, but that is still a difference of $125,000 per game vs. $60,000 per game. In addition to the share of ticket revenues for home friendlies, the men earned $1,500 per game in the three-match send-off series leading up to the World Cup. The women earned $1,350 per game, and only if they won them. Victory tour bonus78.0 NT salary72.0 read more
