McCONALOGUE SLAMS DELAY IN DONEGAL eFIBRE ROLL-OUT

first_imgCharlie McConalogue TD has accused the Minister for Communications of neglecting homes and businesses in Donegal as many towns across the country are still unable to connect to an eFibre service. Protracted negotiations between the telecom providers and COMREG (the Communications Regulator) have stalled the roll out of the service, leading to much frustration and anger from customers.Deputy McConalogue explained, “The introduction of eFibre in Donegal has been completely mismanaged and we are now left with a situation whereby some suburbs have a full connection while many town centres are relying on traditional broadband connections. It makes no sense. “According to COMREG, the problem is related to the type of connection in the building. The majority of businesses in the town centres are directly connected to local exchanges, which are currently unable to connect to the eFibre network. This has left hundreds of shops, offices, restaurants and pubs with a second rate system and is understandably a source of frustration among these business communities.”He added that companies in Donegal have a right to expect a fully functioning high speed eFibre service, but once again find that they have been left behind.“It is essential that the telecom providers come together and resolve their ongoing issues and secure agreement on the roll-out of this essential service.“I have written to COMREG in relation to these negotiations and they have indicated that they hope to have agreement on this issue in the coming weeks. Access to this service is vital for the expansion of our local businesses and I will be continuing to push for urgent progress on this issue”.  McCONALOGUE SLAMS DELAY IN DONEGAL eFIBRE ROLL-OUT was last modified: May 5th, 2015 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:broadbandCharlie McConaloguedonegaleFibrelast_img read more

FIVE QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK YOURSELF WHEN CHOOSING AN ACTIVITY FOR YOUR CHILD

first_imgFEATURES: We are only FOUR weeks away from the beginning of the school year and you might be wondering what you and your family are going to get up to this year – or maybe you are just wondering where you might go? Sarah-Marie McDevitt, manager and director of the fabled Pinehill Dance Studios has suggested FIVE questions a parent should ask themselves when choosing a fitness activity for their child.Here are the list of FIVE questions Sarah-Marie has suggested to ask when choosing an activity for your child and maybe even for yourself. N0.1: What are your goals with having your child go to an activity???What you want for your child will depend on his/her age and previous training, if any.This is a good time to ask your child what they’d like to get out of this.Try to take into account everyone’s dreams – dreams make everything happen! Is your child serious about being a great ballet dancer?Would they love to be a popstar?Do they love to compete?Or do they just like to play, sing, dance or be with their friends?And what about your goals for your child? Grace, fitness, involvement in a challenging activity, or just their special time? No.2: Aren’t all after school activity pretty much the same? What does it matter where I send my child?Physical activities deal with your child’s body during critical years of growth and development, artistic activities deal with their emotional development as well as social development.Poor training of physical activities can cause lasting physical damage, while with age appropriate training, your child can grow to be strong and graceful. A facilities emotional atmosphere can also affect your child’s self-esteem and happiness.We want to emphasize the importance on the right educational facility and make sure the parents receive above and beyond the value for their money. No.3: What services are available?What various kinds of lessons are available – is there a variety of activities, private classes, group classes, practice sessions, 6 week specialized courses, coaching lessons.Other services are provided — information on floors for physical activities, competitive activities, are there dressing rooms, specialized equipment, waiting area for parents.See how the answer to this question matches up with your reasons for going to the activity and the social aspects you are looking to fulfil in your life.No.4: What level of training/accomplishment have the owners and teachers attained?This is a critical question whether or not you would like to sing, act, play, move or dance. Ensure that the individuals who are teaching you or your child have qualifications.Ask for a history on the training of the instructors, ask about their own personal accomplishments. A key here is that the ability to TEACH another individual.Ask for some information on the method of teaching that is used in the studio.Ask for the child protection policy’s and make sure there is one in place, are the instructors all vetted, are they insured, do they hold a membership with a qualifying body.Do they have to participate in Continued Professional Development (CPD) in their relevant field?N0.5: What is the atmosphere/environment of the facility?Is the physical setting of the studio pleasing to you? Does it relax you, calm you and yet entice your feet to move?Sit back and enjoy the setting of the studio, look around at the surroundings and observe the “atmosphere” of the studio.Ensure you feel good when you’re there.Do the owners/teachers make you feel comfortable and welcome on a consistent basis? Are students treated equally — fairly?Is everyone, no matter what size, or shape, or age, or colour treated equally by all the management?Check it out — it matters in the long run.Another issue, do the owners encourage a good attitude towards all other studios? Do they support the community as a whole?The choice of any individual to attend other classes or participate in other functions should be met with a positive attitude and encouraged.The good news is that you will find the correct answers at Pinehill Studios.The studio is located at the Mountain Top area of Letterkenny and has great facilities, friendly instructors and professional management.It was nominated recently for Letterkenny Friendliest Business Award, and always has a friendly face waiting to great you.The instructors are all experts and fully qualified as well as being professionals in their relevant fields.There is a HUGE variety of activities to choose from; including artistic activities such as musical theatre, many styles of dance – including ballet, contemporary, disco freestyle, hiphop & irish dancing; drama and Dramafit.There are energetic children & teen activities such as Total Teen Fitness and Jymka, there are quiet mindful activities such as Mini-me yoga.And if you can find any time left, you could even hold your child’s next birthday party at Pinehill Studios with a full size bouncy castle and catering options.Now that you know the children are going to be having a fabulous time… what about some time for the adults?With as much variety for the adults you can choose from high energy fitness classes, such as Piloxing, Piloxing barre, Piloxing Knockout or come to an adult ballet class or Pilates to tone up your core.

I want to finish my career here.“We’ve had a few days of speaking to the club. I want to stay. The club knows that, the fans know that.”Terry suggested in January he would be leaving in the summer, but Chelsea insisted an offer may be forthcoming and it arrived this week.The centre back said it was for a ‘different role’, hinting at reduced terms – likely without the guarantee of a first-team place.last_img read more

During its more than 15 years in space, the Hubble has taken more than 700,000 snapshots of celestial objects such as galaxies, dying stars and giant gas clouds, the birthplace of stars. The telescope also shot images of chunks of a comet slamming into Jupiter and galaxies that existed billions of years ago.
