Pregnant hares held in Glin coursing compound

first_imgTwitter Linkedin Email New category in this year’s Limerick Going for Gold Limerick remains on storm alert Concerns raised in Limerick over coursing club planning application WhatsApp PREGNANT hares and their leverets were held captive for coursing in Glin, it has emerged.According to a National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) document obtained by the Irish Council Against Blood Sport (ICABS), five leverets were born in the County Limerick coursing compound last month. The baby hares were spotted by a wildlife ranger among the hares captured for a coursing meeting.The NPWS report, released under the Freedom of Information Act, says that the rangers were unable to identify the mothers of the leverets and so they “organised care for and release of the five leverets”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up ICABS say that pregnant hares giving birth at a coursing venue adds to concerns about the plight of hares used in this “shameful activity”.“There are not only fears for the welfare of leverets born in captivity but also those left orphaned in the wild when their mothers are cruelly netted for use in coursing. These vulnerable, dependent creatures are almost certainly doomed to die without their mothers,” an ICABS spokesperson claimed.“The idea of a pregnant hare or indeed any hare in a coursing compound is truly appalling. These animals should all be in the wild where they belong, not in a bloodsport venue to be used as live bait for dogs in a grotesque and anachronistic activity.”John Fitzgerald of the Campaign for the Abolition Of Cruel Sports believes the leverets may have been born in captivity among hares waiting to be coursed, or netted along with adult hares in August or September.“Either way, it is scandalous that these defenceless creatures should be in the possession of any coursing club,” Mr Fitzgerald declared.“Last year, our national parliament had an opportunity to consign hare coursing to the history books. Instead, Dail Eireann gave it a resounding thumbs-up. The TDs who voted against abolition should reflect on the implications of that heartless decision.”In response, DJ Histon of the Irish Coursing Club commented, “All five hares were released in a healthy condition and will continue to thrive and survive in the countryside with the assistance of the Glin Club, as they police the habitat of the Irish hare in their locality on a 12 month basis against all potential threats.“It is not a common phenomenon for hares to be born in hare parks but when it arises, the club take great care to ensure their welfare and ultimate release back to the countryside in a fit and healthy state. The illegal hunting/killing of the Irish hare by gangs with lurcher type dogs, the mink and the buzzard are the real threats, but critics of coursing fail to highlight this on any level.”by Alan [email protected] Let the majesty and drama of the River Shannon and Estuary inspire you!

first_img Previous Article Next Article This week’s letterCulture shift is the key to being more effectiveI read with interest ‘Age-old attitudes may be difficult to change’ (Legal,4 February). Surely, as employers, we should be looking for individuals – regardless ofage, gender or race – who are best suited to fill the vacant role we have onoffer. Is it really the employer that is asking for irrelevant data on age, raceand gender to be given on all CV’s submitted, or is it the agencies we engageto fill these vacancies? I understand and fully support the need-to-know qualifications andexperience. However, I do not need nor want to know the age, race or gender ofa candidate. Agencies and candidates should be questioning the need forproviding this information to employers. The UK is in need of a culture shift where we concentrate on ensuring wehave the most effective and productive workforce to meet the global competitivechallenges, and ultimately this comes down to education, training, developmentand experience. This means that, as HR professionals, we need to gainboard-level backing for putting in place policies, practices and trainingprogrammes that support the changes the company needs to undertake. Raising awareness of the change in demographics has delivered considerablechanges to the opportunities now available to women. Employers are beginning toaddress issues around race as well. But how long will it take for us to wake upand realise that age too should have nothing to do with employment? If UK plc expects to be at the top of the business world in the globalarena, then we have to make the best use of all the human capital available tous and not allow stereotyping and prejudice to limit access to the bestcandidates for the job. Linda Klassen-Brown Group HR manager, Nisaba Group Leaders make the most of employees I agree with Stephen Overell’s suggestion that financial incentives are notthe most effective way of motivating employees and gaining their commitment(Off Message, 18 February). Our own research on motivation clearly shows that the strongest effect onboth engagement and performance derives from the quality of leadership and thevalues that prevail in the organisation. It’s about finding out what willencourage employees to go that ‘extra mile’ and likewise what switches themoff. Well-led organisations that consult and listen to their people and thenact and communicate against properly understood priorities have a much greaterchance of success. Raising pay or improving benefits will very rarely increase engagement ontheir own. Improving leadership, offering increased development opportunities,being creative about work-life balance and looking hard at improving thequality of work are proven to matter far more. Helen Murlis Director, Hay Group Action stations for tailored training I applaud the recognition of the need for in-house training in the article‘Employers must rethink managers’ development’ (News, 4 February). But I strongly believe there are great benefits to be attained from usingexternal suppliers. Increasingly, modern courses are based on action learningprinciples – enabling candidates to tailor their assignments directly to liveissues and priorities within their own business. It is not just the candidates that reap the rewards of action learning –this highly practical approach adds to an employer’s competitive advantage, byproviding instant in-house ‘management consultancy’. External suppliers of training also offer the added advantage of being ableto draw on the experiences of employees from a variety of organisations. We’ve seen it practised successfully in the US for a number of years, sowhen are we going to see its acceptance in the UK?

Motorola sends staff out to sea for team skills

first_imgCommunications company Motorola has found that team-building is mosteffective when its brightest workers are all at sea. Under the Leadership Learning Partnership programme, up to 50 Motorola staffwill take to the waves each year with skipper Conrad Humphreys, winner of the2000-2001 BT Global Challenge round-the-world yacht race, to learn skills thatthey can bring to the meeting table back on dry land. A dozen members of staff, identified as having leadership potential, butwithout any previous yachting experience, recently joined Humphreys for theRound the Island [of Wight] race to enhance their communication and teamskills. Following a day learning how to sail, the team spent the evening talkingtactics before spending the night on board, and joined one thousand yachts thenext day for the race. Humphreys said the pressures and challenges faced aboard a yacht could bedirectly translated into a business environment. “In a race you have sub-groups who all have to back each otherup,” he said. “It’s all about speed and communication. If one personisn’t performing, then you are out of the race.” Vanessa Loughlin, head of the office of leadership at Motorola, said theevent had been such a success that the company plans to extend the scheme withan inter-sector Motorola regatta in the future.

The role of membrane-like stresses in determining the stability and sensitivity of the Antarctic ice sheets: back pressure and grounding line motion

first_imgMembrane stresses act along thin bodies which are relatively well lubricated on both surfaces. They operate in ice sheets because the bottom is either sliding, or is much less viscous than the top owing to stress and heat softening of the basal ice. Ice streams flow over very well lubricated beds, and are restrained at their sides. The ideal of the perfectly slippery bed is considered in this paper, and the propagation of mechanical effects along an ice stream considered by applying spatially varying horizontal body forces. Propagation distances depend sensitively on the rheological index, and can be very large for ice-type rheologies. A new analytical solution for ice-shelf profiles and grounded tractionless stream profiles is presented, which show blow up of the profile in a finite distance upstream at locations where the flux is non-zero. This is a feature of an earlier analytical solution for a floating shelf. The length scale of decay of membrane stresses from the grounding line is investigated through scale analysis. In ice sheets, such effects decay over distances of several tens of kilometres, creating a vertical boundary layer between sheet flow and shelf flow, where membrane stresses adjust. Bounded, physically reasonable steady surface profiles only exist conditionally in this boundary layer. Where bounded steady profiles exist, adjacent profile equilibria for the whole ice sheet corresponding to different grounded areas occur (neutral equilibrium). If no solution in the boundary layer can exist, the ice-sheet profile must change. The conditions for existence can be written in terms of whether the basal rate factor (sliding or internal deformation) is too large to permit a steady solution. The critical value depends extremely sensitively on ice velocity and the back stress applied at the grounding line. High ice velocity and high stress both favour the existence of solutions and stability. Changes in these parameters can cause the steady solution existence criterion to be traversed, and the ice-sheet dynamics to change. A finite difference model which represents both neutral equilibrium and the dynamical transition is presented, and preliminary investigations into its numerical sensitivity are carried out. Evidence for the existence of a long wavelength instability is presented through the solution of a numerical eigenproblem, which will hamper predictability.last_img read more

Jobs under threat at Addo Food Group’s Riverside Bakery

first_imgAddo Food Group-owned Riverside Bakery may cut as many as 44 jobs following a review of its business.The move comes less than two months after the announcement that another Addo business, Lincolnshire-based Spalding Bakery, could see 46 jobs cut following a shake up its shift system. Consultation at Spalding Bakery is ongoing.Riverside, based in Nottingham, said it needed to make changes to its structure to maintain the success and health of the business.“As a result, we are reluctantly proposing to reduce the number of roles within our teams, with 44 roles under review as part of a detailed consultation process,” added a spokesman.  “We are also proposing to adjust the terms and conditions of the current pay structure, resulting in a new, simpler system for all employees.”Riverside currently employs around 340 people at Nottingham, and makes pastry products for retailers including Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s and Asda. The business also produces gluten-free pastry brand No G.The spokesman added:  “We fully recognise how hard this proposal is on affected employees and, should our proposals be accepted, we will work closely with employees and their representatives to look for every opportunity to minimise potential job losses.”Riverside Bakery has enjoyed significant investment in the past few years, according to Addo, enabling the business to develop “state-of-the-art” manufacturing assets.last_img read more
