Urgent funding required for ‘politically irrelevant’ Donegal Islands – Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig

first_imgIndependent councillor Mícheál Choilm Mac Giolla Easbuig has urged the government and Donegal County Council to review the level of funding for the Donegal Islands. Last August, €359,000 had been allocated to all the Donegal Islands, a reduction of 25% in funding levels to the year prior.Speaking to Donegal Daily after visiting residents on Gola Island, Mícheál Cholm said serious investment and support was needed for the islands before it was too late. “The islands are very important to the county and I have spent a lot of time and focus over the last five years on them,” he said“For me, they are very important and I hold them close to my heart and they have been neglected by successive governments and councils in Donegal, which isn’t right or fair to the people who spend their lives there.“And the vast majority of our councillors don’t bother with the islands because they see it as politically irrelevant, that’s the truth of the matter.”Cllr Mícheál Choilm on Gola Island on Sunday“It is about treating people equally right across Donegal and those islands have a massive influence on our culture and history. “Walking through Gola (Island) on Sunday you could see clearly the lack of investment and not just on the infrastructure but into the people themselves who have been neglected for generations.“But what excites me now is the new group of young people that are starting a return to the island and see themselves, just like their ancestors before them, as islanders.“So, the powers at be, need to be supporting these young people at every opportunity and, we as a council and as a state, need to be doing far more than is being done at present.”Urgent funding required for ‘politically irrelevant’ Donegal Islands – Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig was last modified: March 25th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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:gola islandlast_img read more

78 fewer mental health professionals in Northwest than 10 years ago

first_imgThere are 78 fewer professionals working in mental health services across the HSE region CHO1 than ten years ago new figures show.The local HSE Area, which covers counties Donegal, Cavan, Leitrim, Monaghan and Sligo, has seen the number of full-time posts within mental health services being reduced from 1,032 in 2009 down to just 954 as of July this year.Deputy Pearse Doherty said the figures illustrate the complete disregard the government has for people with mental health problems. He added the shocking figures come amidst an ongoing recruitment and retention crisis with some 700 vacancies in mental health services alone across the state.Deputy Doherty said “These figures which reveal that there are today 78 fewer full-time staff employed within local Community based mental health services here in the northwest region compared to the same period ten years ago is beyond comprehension.“As a local elected representative, I am constantly being contacted by families who share stories of loved ones who are being let down by gaps in the service, often citing a lack of community and after hours care and support.“And despite the best efforts of our hard working frontline staff, these latest figures clearly show that local mental health services here in Donegal and neighbouring counties are chronically understaffed and under resourced. “The data illustrates that while for the majority of HSE regions there have been an increase, albeit a modest one, in the number of staff working within mental health services, CHO1 – which includes Donegal – is one of the areas where staffing levels are lower than they were back in 2009.“It’s no surprise that a recent Mental Health Commission report was damning in its criticism of how problems such as poor hygiene within mental health units, as well as inadequate staffing were undermining patients’ rights and called on the government to make significant steps to address these issues.“This is why, prior to the summer recess, Sinn Féin tabled and won support for amendments to a Dáil motion which called on both the government and the HSE to produce a real plan aimed at improving patient care and at providing support to staff and all those working within mental health services.“Our amendments included demands that the post of National Director for Mental Health be reinstated, that an information system for mental health services be developed, and for the government to commit to not implementing a freeze on recruitment or overtime for essential staff.“However, the government continues to drag its heels on taking steps towards improving services for those living with mental health difficulties and – as we’ve seen all too many times before – patients here in Donegal continue to suffer disproportionately due to Fine Gael’s health policies.” 78 fewer mental health professionals in Northwest than 10 years ago was last modified: September 6th, 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)last_img read more

Steal This Enterprise Startup Idea: One-Click Conference Calls

first_imgIT + Project Management: A Love Affair klint finley Related Posts Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Nowcenter_img You dial the conference call number. Or you can copy and paste it into Skype, or just click the link in your phone’s e-mail app. Then you have to enter your 12 digit conference ID number, or whatever this particular system calls it. If you’re on your phone and away from your computer, maybe you jotted it down on a piece of scrap paper. If not, you need to switch back and forth between your dialer and the app that the ID number.You punch in the number. You wait. Nothing happens. You realize you forgot to hit pound at the end. OK, pound. The robotic voice on the other end slowly, carefully reads the whole number back to you. Are you sure this is the number you meant to dial? Yes of course it is, stupid robot! You hit “one” to confirm. You wait. Sorry, this access code is incorrect. Please enter your 12 digit conference participant ID access code number followed by pound now. Arh, that wasn’t the right number after all. You try again, this time remembering to hit pound. The robot repeats it back to you again and you confirm. Finally, you enter the conference call, a bit late.Pleasantries are exchanged, the conference gets rolling and then…someone’s call gets dropped. Everyone waits for them to dial back in and run the access code gauntlet.Why do we still have to put up with this process in a time in which most of us are dialing in with sophisticated smartphones or from VOIP applications on powerful desktops? Sure, there are a couple alternatives. Many Web-based conference calls have VOIP option. But in my experience, the audio quality is usually unusably bad. I’m better off calling in with Skype than using the conference software’s native voice support.The conference organizer may also be able to dial-out to the participants. If everyone’s on Skype, someone can just call all the other participants to initiate a conference. WebEx has that call me back feature, if you’re willing and able to launch the application and login that way.But shouldn’t it be possible, since nearly everyone will be calling from some sort of technologically advanced device, to embed the access code into a link that could be clicked just once to dial into the conference? It might require partnering with carriers and handset manufacturers, but wouldn’t it be much nicer to click once to call a conference?There are a few third-party apps that try to mitigate the experience by letting you paste your conference ID into a specially designed conference call dialer, but I’d like a more seamless experience provided by conference call vendors directly, and without needing to download dedicated apps.I suppose this is the sort of problem unified communications is supposed to solve eventually. Why not solve it now, instead of in some magic time in the future when we’re all running interoperable UC platforms?Feel free to steal this idea, or to tell me about those that are already implementing it.Photo by Samantha Celera Tags:#Communications#enterprise Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…last_img read more

first_imgManchester United have not committed to signing reinforcements in January as it is difficult to recruit the right players during the mid-season transfer window, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Wednesday.Solskjaer, who sanctioned the departures of forwards Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez in the close season without acquiring replacements, conceded last month that his squad was light, especially after injuries to several key players. “On transfers, we always look at the long term. It might be one, two or none in January,” Solskjaer told reporters ahead of Thursday’s Europa League match against Partizan Belgrade at Old Trafford.”The summer window is the one we always look to. You cannot really do too many good deals in January.”United are top of Group L in the Europa League and the Norwegian manager said he trusted his young core to step up in the absence of injured seniors.”We’ve seen some young players getting a chance and doing well,” he added. “Mason (Greenwood) has given us a winner, Brandon (Williams) was fantastic in Belgrade.”We’ve given other players a chance to play which has been fantastic because you cannot play with the same 12-13 players all the time.”However, United sit 10th in the Premier League with three wins in 11 games and Solskjaer said the return of midfielder Paul Pogba and defenders Luke Shaw and Eric Bailly from injury would add the required experience to move up the standings.”I think this team is improving and the longer time we get together, the more we will improve. I can see the improvement in these kids more and more,” Solskjaer said.”We need the experienced lads. Paul, we’ve got Anthony (Martial) back and hopefully we’ll have Luke back soon. Eric will be back soon.”(Pogba) won’t be too long before he he’s out of his cast, he’ll work through the international break and hopefully we’ll have him back in early December.” Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak.
