IMF: UK faces faster growth

first_img BRITAIN’S recovery is on track and it will continue to grow both this year and next, according to influential international body the IMF.In its annual forecast for the UK, it said that GDP would grow 1.7 per cent this year and two per cent next year, accelerating thereafter, with little expectation of recession.The forecasts are in line with the IMF’s previous estimates issued in October.The IMF also sounded a note of caution over the government’s £81bn in spending cuts announced last month. While welcoming the cuts, the IMF said the government had to be prepared if necessary to rethink its strategy which it said was risky and could “strain public service delivery in some areas”.“In the unexpected case of a significant and prolonged new downturn, some directors considered that the pace of structural fiscal consolidation could be adapted,” the report said.Meanwhile, think-tank the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) yesterday reported slowing UK economic growth over the past quarter. Economic growth in Britain is likely to have slowed to 0.5 per cent in the three months to October from 0.8 per cent in the three months to September, it said.

Women in Science inspire #Steminism

first_imgFacebook printTCU’s Women in Science (WISE) club is working to foster a spirit of intrigue in young women interested in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers.Since the club’s launch in 2014, it has been almost exclusively female, but the organization is opening their doors to people of all genders that want to see the best for women in science and STEM fields.The club was established after many female students felt a lack of representation in science and STEM programs on and off campus. Hashtags like #GirlsCanCode, #WomenInSTEM and #Steminist took over online and publicized that many other women felt underrepresented as well.“There is a lack of representation of women in STEM,” said Christine Pho, junior physics and pre-medicine major. “Young girls have to be encouraged to pursue these careers. They have to know they are competent and intelligent.”[<a href=”//storify.com/mm_guter/womeninstem” target=”_blank”>View the story “#WomenInSTEM” on Storify</a>]WISE is encouraging women to join science and STEM fields as soon as possible.WISE’s president, Lindsey Elliot wants people to know on TCU’s campus, there will always be a place on campus for nerdy women.“We are here to unite women from all areas of science and STEM,” said Elliot. “We want a diverse campus. We want to be a diverse community that fosters innovation and creative outlets for women.”Pho said unlike other girls, she was pushed to pursue STEM at a young age.“I had a really fiery seventh-grade math teacher and he immediately noticed my aptitude for math,” said Pho. “He really encouraged me to join the math team and the science club and that’s where I was able to find my passion.”As of 2009, women only accounted for 24 percent of careers in STEM, according to research from the U.S. Department of Commerce. STEM careersVenngage InfographicsThe women of WISE want to change that statistic and to inspire women of all ages to get involved with STEM.“We’re always trying to grow and improve STEM careers for women,” said Pho.InfogramPho said she also believes TCU does a better job of encouraging women in STEM than other universities and is thankful for her experience here.“I think for a small school we have a really rigorous STEM curriculum,” said Pho. “People think that when they go to college their degree is the only thing they can pursue. The teachers at TCU really want you to do more than what you learn in the classroom.” World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution ReddIt Megan Guterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/megan-guter/ Megan Guterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/megan-guter/ Megan Guterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/megan-guter/ Facebook Live Blog: Medical School Receives Preliminary Accreditation + posts Review: Ali and Mortensen bring the ’60s to life in Peter Farrelly’s ‘Green Book’ TCU community honors loved ones during National Suicide Prevention Week TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Megan Guter Review: Christian Bale goes above and beyond in Adam McKay’s ‘Vice’ Twitter Photo credit: Christine Pho Megan Guterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/megan-guter/ Megan Guter is a senior journalism major and FTDM minor from New Orleans, Louisiana.

Details emerge about show trial detainees being denied their rights

first_imgNews March 18, 2021 Find out more IranMiddle East – North Africa News Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 Reporters Without Borders reiterates its condemnation of the Stalin-style prosecutions and trials of critics of President Mahmoud Ahmadinedjad’s reelection that are taking place in Tehran.“The defendants are being denied their most basic rights,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Not only are they not being allowed lawyer visits but the courts are rejecting the defence lawyers they choose. Only lawyers appointed by Tehran state prosecutor Said Mortazavi are being allowed access to the courtrooms.”Online journalist Kaveh Mozafari wrote to the head of the judicial system, Ayatollah Hashemi Shahroudi, on 10 August criticising the many violations of his rights that have taken place since his arrest on 9 July.“After a month in detention and an arrest warrant issued by the first chamber of the prosecutor’s office for security, I still do not know what I am officially charged with,” the journalists wrote in his letter. “I do not know on what basis I am being accused of activities against national security, disturbing public order and destroying public property. Like others, all I have been given is a copy of the arrest warrant.”Mozafari’s letter continues: “After a month in detention and the end of the interrogations and investigation, I am still waiting, despite the prosecutor general’s promise to finish the investigation of all the cases by 7 August. I was blindfolded during interrogation. I was not questioned about the charges but about my private life and my beliefs. The authorities deny using physical torture at Evin prison but the psychological pressure and violence is real. The basic rights of citizens in detention are being violated.”Four lawyers – Nassrin Soutodeh, Mohammad Mostafai, Abdolssamad Khoramshahi and Mina Jafari – wrote to Ayatollah Shahroudi on 11 August protesting against the fact that officials denied them access to the courtrooms on 8 August and told them the defendants already had a lawyer, one who had been assigned to them. Soutodeh said he was threatened with arrest.On 12 August, United Nations secretary-general Ban Ki-moon received a letter signed by Iranian journalist Akbar Ganji and more than 260 intellectuals and human rights activists from all over the world – including Jürgen Habermas, Noam Chomsky and Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard – condemning the rigging of Ahmadinedjad’s reelection and urging the UN not to recognise it.The letter asked the UN secretary-general to propose the creation of an international commission of enquiry into the allegations of electoral fraud and to press the Iranian authorities to annul the results and organise new, free and fair, elections. It also asked him to demand the release of all those arrested during the recent demonstrations and to press the authorities to recognise the principle of free expression.Reporters Without Borders has meanwhile learned of the release of two of the detained journalists. Farhikhtegan reporter Esmail Hagh Parast, who was arrested on 22 June, was freed on 6 August. Photographer Majid Saidi, who was arrested on 11 July, was freed on 10 August.

Local business running on .ie domain

first_imgLinkedin Background photo created by mindandi – www.freepik.comTHE .IE domain is still the most favoured by local businesses and individuals with 713 new domains registered in Limerick during the first half of the year.There are now  46,449 .ie domains registered in Munster, up 9.2 per cent year-on-year, according to the latest edition of the .ie Domain Profile Report.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up  Nationally, the total .ie domain database grew by 8.3 per cent year-on-year, and by nearly 40 per cent compared to the same period five years ago. At the end of June, there were 273,156 .ie domains.80.2 per cent of the total .ie database is comprised of companies and self-employed entrepreneurs, up 4 per cent year-on-year.New .ie registrations by individuals grew by 26.4 per cent year-on-year, which speaks to the growing trend of using websites to build a permanent, personal space on the internet.And 240 domains were offered for private sale in the first half of the year, up 75 per cent  from 137 in the same period last year.IE Domain Registry, the company that manages and maintains .ie, Ireland’s country domain name, says that much of the recent growth has been powered by a change to registration requirements in March 2018.While .ie registrants must still prove their connection to Ireland, they no longer need to prove their ‘claim’ to a particular .ie name, which makes the registration process easier and faster, particularly for early-stage start-up businesses.David Curtin, Chief Executive of IE Domain Registry, said that .ie remains the digital gold standard for businesses, entrepreneurs, communities, and individuals that want to build or enhance their online presence.“For businesses selling online, .ie represents authenticity and trustworthiness, factors that are hugely important for e-commerce. For individuals, an .ie domain has benefits over a social media presence, particularly in terms of control over content and reach.” TAGSbusinessLimerick City and CountyNews Previous articleTwo rescued from the water overnightNext articleOola stun Newcastle West to earn SFC semi final spot Bernie Englishhttp://www.limerickpost.ieBernie English has been working as a journalist in national and local media for more than thirty years.

Trustees approve policies for District of Innovation

first_img After nearly a year of legal wrangling, a grievance filed by the local affiliate of the Texas State Teachers Association related to Ector County Independent School District’s designation as a District of Innovation was settled with school board approval of a set of policies.The grievance was filed in May 2017. The concept of a District of Innovation was passed by the 84th Texas Legislature in 2015 (HB 1842). The law allows traditional independent school districts to access most of the flexibilities available to Texas’ open enrollment charter schools. To be eligible, a school district must have an accountability rating of “met standard,” which ECISD has.Mike Atkins, the attorney for ECISD, said the policy codifies what was in the District of Innovation plan. He said he worked with TSTA’s attorney on the wording of the policies and agreed to give the organization input.Once the policies were approved, it served as an automatic dismissal of the grievance, Atkins said at Tuesday’s board work study session. He said TSTA seemed most concerned about the certification requirements for career and technology education teachers.Contracts for the AVID program were discussed during the Ector County Independent School District Board of Trustees work study session.In use districtwide, AVID is a college preparation program that teaches note taking, time management and organization. AVID stands for Advancement via Individual Determination.AVID District Director Dianne Mata said the 2018-19 contract will cost $106,000.A new contract discussed by board members is for AVID Excel at Bonham Middle School. Part of the campus turnaround plan, Bonham Excel targets English language learners in seventh and eighth grade.Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Carolyn Gonzalez said Bonham’s turnaround plan will cost $109,000 per year for two years. Of that, AVID Excel will cost $9,100 and include training, curriculum for a teacher, a classroom library, virtual professional development and a summer bridge program that students would have to attend before next fall.Officials noted that several teachers will be trained in AVID Excel and Mata could do a lot of it because she is qualified to do so.Mata said about 40 students at Bonham would qualify for AVID Excel and all of them can be accommodated. She said there will be a parent information meeting about it and PowerPoint presentations are already available in English and Spanish.In other discussion, language in the proposed charter for the Bond Planning Committee was edited so members wouldn’t have to attend every meeting. Atkins proposed saying that people should use their best efforts to attend.The committee began meeting April 9. The next meeting is scheduled for May 10 and will include a facilities tour.Superintendent Tom Crowe said anyone has the opportunity to join the committee and meetings are posted in case board members want to attend.On purchases of more than $50,000, Gonzalez said request for proposals are out for a consultant for six elementary campuses that are on improvement required status under state accountability standards.The consultant would work with Blackshear, Goliad, West, Burleson, Ireland and Downing elementary schools, Gonzalez said.On a separate item, trustees approved changing the next board meeting date from April 17.Trustees plan to meet twice — April 24 and April 26.The April 24 meeting would be to consider a proposal from Texas Tech University to create an in-district charter at Ector Middle School.A parent meeting on the plan is set for Thursday at the school, 809 W. Clements St.Dinner and student performances begin at 5 p.m. and the Texas Tech presentation will begin shortly after 6 p.m.The plan is one of the options available to school board members as a remedy to Ector being in its fifth year of IR. Noel and Pease elementary schools are also in their fifth year of IR. If the campuses don’t come off the list, they will face closure or the Texas Education Commissioner will appoint a board of managers over the whole district.The April 26 meeting will include action items on Tuesday’s agenda, plus a discussion on boundary changes due to school overcrowding.The date change for the regular meeting will give district officials time to hold parent meetings regarding proposed boundary changes.The board also about 25 minutes in closed session reviewing contracts for administrators, teachers, and other professional support employees. No action was taken.PREVIOUS VERSION: Policies related to Ector County Independent School District’s designation as a District of Innovation were approved, which settled a dispute with the local affiliate of the Texas State Teachers Association.The grievance was filed in May 2017. The concept of a District of Innovation was passed by the 84th Texas Legislature in 2015 (HB 1842). The law allows traditional independent school districts to access most of the flexibilities available to Texas’ open enrollment charter schools. To be eligible, a school district must have an accountability rating of “met standard,” which ECISD has.Exemptions the board approved April 11, 2017, included:Changing the school start date. Under state law, districts must start no earlier than the fourth Monday in August. Officials have said this will not affect teacher contracts. Teachers will still have 187 days.Certification requirements for career and technology education teachers so the district can hire experienced welding, automotive technology, auto collision and construction technology teachers who have experience, but may not have a college degree. These positions are historically difficult to fill, officials have said.And not using student performance as a factor in teacher and administrator appraisals for this year.Mike Atkins, the attorney for ECISD, said the policy codifies what was in the District of Innovation plan. He said he worked with TSTA’s attorney on the wording of the policies and agreed to give the organization input.Once the policies were approved, it served as an automatic dismissal of the grievance, Atkins said. He said TSTA seemed most concerned about the certification requirements for career and technology education teachers.The board also discussed approving the 2018-19 contract for AVID, a college preparation program in use districtwide. AVID stands for Advancement via Individual Determination.AVID District Director Dianne Mata said the contract will cost $106,000.Mata said she believes AVID is a way to bring success to students. It’s a question of teacher training. A one-day training is offered and while she doesn’t think it’s enough, there is only her and a coordinator currently so they do the best they can.Board member Delma Abalos said it’s not fair to expect teachers to use AVID well if they aren’t trained adequately.A new contract discussed by board members is for AVID Excel at Bonham Middle School. Part of the campus turnaround plan, Bonham Excel targets English language learners in seventh and eighth grade.Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Carolyn Gonzalez said Bonham’s turnaround plan will cost $109,000 per year for two years.
