Clean Coasts Week urges Donegal locals to clean up their coastline

first_imgRegistrations for the Coca-Cola Clean Coasts week are now open, and groups are encouraged to register now to receive their free beach clean-up. Taking place from June 1st- 9th, the week aims to encourage the nation to protect and enjoy our coastline while celebrating the thousands of volunteers across the island of Ireland who continuously work to keep the beaches clean all year around. Clean Coasts engages communities in the protection of Ireland’s beaches, seas and marine life. Clean Coasts has grown over the years and now includes two main nation clean-up drives- Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week and the Big Beach Clean. There are currently over 700 registered Clean Coasts groups. Last year, 19 groups of volunteers between Donegal and Leitrim registered, with beach clean-ups happening in different locations across this region. These included free yoga sessions on Rossnowlagh Beach and a public discussion on how the local community can take better care of the Fanad coastline. Research confirmed that ‘doing good’ can help us reduce stress and improve health, which are the same effects that sport has on us. As such, this year’s Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week is back with the aim of getting people from the local sports communities involved. To register, visit www.cleancoasts.org. Registered groups will receive a free clean-up kit and other resources to organise clean-up events in your local areas.

Augmented Reality App Shows Recovery.gov Funding Near You

first_img5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Tags:#Augmented Reality#news#NYT#web 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… marshall kirkpatrick 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…center_img 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App Related Posts Want to see who got part of the hundreds of billions of dollars in Recovery.gov funds near you? Now you can point your iPhone 3Gs or Android phone in any direction and see the closest recipients, thanks to the publication of the official data set onto the Layar Augmented Reality platform. Sunlight Labs published the marked-up information and the results are fascinating.This may be the most accessible way to view this information yet. I must confess, I am surprised to see that an auto shop and a Bible college in my neighborhood received a lot more money than the technical college, eco-car company and Native American youth program down the road. Fire up Layar on your phone, search for “Sunlight” and you can see the effects of the funding program on your own neighborhood. This is the kind of thing that standardized data makes possible.As Sunlight explains: “Layar is an application that overlays your view of the real world with waypoints representing your favorite coffee place, the movie theatre you’re trying to find, or in this case, where some of that $787 billion from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is going.”Fortunately, the Recovery funding information was published by the Federal government in KML format – making it easy for 3rd parties like Sunlight to mash it up with services like Layar. I wish there was an option in the interface to Google the name of the recipient, not just look up its location. Right now there’s no information made immediately available beyond name, sum and address. Sunlight was deeply critical of the initial release of data by the federal government this Summer. This is a great example of what kinds of things they and other groups can do when they get their hands on data.So how does funding in your neighborhood look?last_img read more

Markets shut, public transport off roads for 58th consecutive day in Kashmir

first_imgNormal life remained affected in Kashmir for the 58th consecutive day on Tuesday as the stalemate following the abrogation of Article 370 provisions continued with markets shut and public transport off the roads, officials said.Mobile services remained suspended in Kashmir except in Handwara and Kupwara areas in the north, while Internet services – across all platforms – continued to be snapped in the valley since the night of August 4, they said.The officials said the decision on restoring the services would be taken at an appropriate time after assessing the situation.They said main markets and other business establishments across the valley remained shut and public transport was off the roads for the 58th consecutive day on Tuesday.However, private cars were plying in many areas and few inter-district cabs and autorickshaws were seen plying in some areas of the city here, they added.There were no restrictions anywhere in the valley, the officials said, adding that security forces were deployed in strength in vulnerable areas to maintain law and order.The functioning of schools in Kashmir has remained affected since August 5 when the Centre announced its decision to abrogate provisions of Article 370 and to bifurcate the state into Union territories.The officials said the state government was trying its best to have normal functioning in the schools, but its efforts have not borne any fruit as most parents continued to keep the kids at home due to apprehensions about their safety.Most of the top level and second rung separatist politicians have been taken into preventive custody while mainstream leaders, including two former chief ministers Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti, have been either detained or placed under house arrest.Another former chief minister and sitting Lok Sabha MP from Srinagar Farooq Abdullah has been arrested under the controversial Public Safety Act, a law enacted by his father and National Conference founder Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah in 1978 when he was the chief minister.last_img read more
