Minister Ring denies Cope’s claims of rural underspend

first_imgMichael Ring has hit back at Fianna Fáil for ‘misleading’ the public in relation to Government funding for rural communities.The comments from the Minister for Rural and Community Development come following claims yesterday (Weds) by Fianna Fáil’s Pat the Cope Gallagher over a €270 million underspend.The Fianna Fail TD calculated, from parliamentary question replies, that €270M which was sanctioned for 2017-2019 rural schemes and LEADER funding had not been spent by the end of August. However, according to Minister Ring, the Department of Rural and Community Development has now publicly confirmed that there is no such underspend within the Department.“Fianna Fáil’s spokesperson on Rural, Community, and Gaeltacht Affairs, Dara Calleary, is misleading people in relation to Government investment in rural areas. I ask him to desist from doing so. The truth is this Government is spending more money on rural communities than ever before,” Ring said.“Let me be clear: there is no underspend in relation to my Department’s funding of rural communities. My Department spent all of its capital budget last year, it will spend it in full this year, and will do so again next year.“Last year the Department spent €237.5 million of a total budget of €239.2 million (the savings made mainly related to administration costs savings on staff and admin overheads). For the year to date in 2019, the Department’s spend is very much on target*. “This is a deliberate and reckless attempt by Fianna Fáil to mislead people and undermine the work of the Government.”In relation to this claim, Minister Ring continued: “I can confirm that since the Town and Village Renewal Scheme and Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Schemes commenced in 2016 there have been approvals of €91.5 million with payments of €51 million made for completed works.“There are commitments of €39.9 million remaining on these schemes, not €56 million as Fianna Fáil claim. This money will be paid when the works are completed.“These are capital projects which can have long lead-in times for design, procurement and delivery. Works usually take 18-24 months with main payments made on completion of the projects. Such timelines are necessary to enable local authorities to deliver projects under our capital programmes.“For example, if I approve funding for the building of a community centre, the money doesn’t leave my Department until the centre is built. “This is a fundamental principle in managing public finances. It’s cynical and desperate of Fianna Fáil to try to characterise it as an underspend. Do they think we should hand over the money before the work has even started?“This Government is spending more money on rural communities than ever before and it is spending it on time. When Fianna Fáil were last in Government, we didn’t have any money to spend on rural communities and 1,000 jobs a week were being lost.“It is the job of the opposition to hold the Government to account but in doing so it should stick to the facts and not mislead people. Otherwise, it is doing rural Ireland a disservice.”Minister Ring denies Cope’s claims of rural underspend was last modified: September 19th, 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)last_img read more

5 Retail Graphics Must-Dos to Spark an Offline-Retail Resurrection

first_imgAditya KathotiaFounder & CEO of Digital Polo “Need to shop? Let’s Amazon it.” This statement appears to be the modern day consensus among shoppers across different age categories, and rightly so. There is no denying the marvel that online shopping is today. It’s time-effective, cost-effective, and above all convenient.One must admit that off late, Brick-and-Mortar has lost its’ mojo. However, it would be improper to call them dead.Now the question is, “can brick-and-mortar retailers compete with e-commerce stores?” Ask me, and I will tell you that they have the potential of a mighty resurrection.Shopping is an experience — “Don’t confuse it to be something else.”Out of everything that online shopping brings to the table, there is one aspect that it lags on – customer experience. You have to understand that shopping and buying are two different things. Buying sounds transactional. Shopping sounds experiential. It won’t exactly be a crime to say that online shopping is predominantly transactional in nature.Fact File: Recent findings by the Temkin Group found out that companies that earn $1 billion annually can expect to earn an additional $700 million within three years of investing in customer experience.Now imagine this. You go out on a Friday evening to one of this fancy store at the mall that boasts of incredible graffiti on the walls, and centrally powered with Artificial intelligence and other new world technologies. Whether you end up buying something or not, you will come back home and say that you went shopping. This is the customer experience. What’s shopping without customer experience? This is the one aspect which I believe can lead the offline resurrection.Retail Graphics – ‘The Potential Game changer’My primary aim is not to ask you to choose between the mediums, nor is this a retail-technology blog bragging about the modern-day retail breakthroughs. I am here to talk about retail graphics.What I mainly mean to say, is that retail graphics can play an immense role in enhancing the in-store experience of visitors. Every brand wants to ensure that its messaging and persona is perceived correctly by both existing and potential customers. Moreover, they would want people to get the right vibes and feel once they are in-store, and also before and after. How and what the person sees and senses can be the difference between him walking out of the store, as opposed to signing up as a customer for life.It’s all about wowing customers when they walk inside the store. Retail Graphics & design certainly can make a world of difference. Adopt great retail graphics solutions and see a surge in your bottom line. Let me elaborate on how.Retail Barricade Graphics — Turning Unsightly Walls into blissful display areasI am sure that we are all acquainted with large areas of walls and partitions in malls, constructed for safety and security during constructions and renovations. These are called barricades, and to brands, it’s worth more than just blank, empty spaces. Barricade graphics can turn this space into an area of absolute visual delight. Brands can ensure accurate customer-perception by making the most out of their retail barricade graphics.(Image Courtesy: solidretailservices.com)It’s important to get the graphics right as these spaces are easily visible inside malls, and in more ways than one, the customer buying-decision journey begins from this point. Yes, you might say that this avenue has been looked at by brands for quite some time now. But, the fact remains that customers still feel weak in the knees at the sight of an exceptional barricade graphic. Besides, when it comes to branding & advertising, you wouldn’t want to believe that you are doing excellently, especially when it comes to retail barricade graphics. Time for deliberations is over. Go ahead and get the perfect retail barricade display and watch your in-store fortune change.Traditional print Material – Don’t make the mistake of underestimating its’ power. Yes, even today.          The advent of digital media and its’ role in marketing has been tremendous. As a result, advertisers and marketers have shifted focus on the medium to quadruple their returns. The Print and Digital debate has been reverberating for quite some time now. Digital media have come out on top on most occasions. Count my vote in for digital too. However, I am not one to believe that print is completely baseless. If anything, I believe a resurgence of sorts is on its’ way up.Fact File: As per findings not too long ago, print marketing return-rate in 2017 jumped by 190% with around 43% of more customers responding to direct mail, in comparison to 2016.              Come to think of it; it doesn’t really surprise me. I mean, Yes digital does give you the reach and convenience. But, think about the kind of cut-throat competition these days. Almost everybody has gone digital, and as a result, the floodgates have opened. Customers online today get more than they want, almost to the point that they are starting to feel invaded.Personalization and customization are the buzzwords in town, and to be frank; people are flooded with information digitally. I know I am. Now think from a marketer’s shoes. What are the chances of your digital messaging negating all the noise and clutter and making it to the person’s eyes consistently?Hold on. Eyes are not enough. One needs to read and derive insight out of it. Add lips and brain in there. What I am trying to say is that you are just a drop in the ocean and you are just one click away from being ignored. The word ‘overdose’ comes to mind here.Now it’s a little different for print friends. Traditional print materials (brochures, catalogs, flyers, newsletters) apart from having a physical and tangible side to it guarantee the readers’ particular attention. It’s a permanent thing on the table that can be viewed at the readers’ leisure.You can choose to ignore it at the outset, but what are the chances that you might pick it up again? It would be a folly to underestimate the power of traditional materials. It is okay to concentrate on your digital marketing endeavors, but don’t just rule out print yet. It’s been there for ages and come what may it’s not going anywhere.Way-finding Retail graphics – ‘Getting them awe-struck is not enough, Get them in the store.’You might have scored huge brownie points in luring your customer to gaze at your barricade graphic, or won them over with attractive banners. But all of that is of no avail if they don’t land up in your store. There are other brands and brand-categories with their own barricades and banners. It’s only a matter of time before your prospective business gets distracted. So the trick is to remain within the vicinity of the customers’ eyes at all times possible.This is where internal way-finding signage and decorations can captivate customers for long. It shouldn’t be a task for people to find your store. Proper signage distributed evenly from the mall entrance to your storefront will make things easier for customers. Along with the signage, powerful brand messaging through well-crafted banners and POS displays also help in re-instating brand value.If you want to go into overdrive, then printed floors story-boarding the customers’ journey from mall-entrance to store-front can be the icing on the lovely baked cake thus far. The idea is not just to generate desire, but to create multiple impulses till the time the customer comes knocking on your store-door. Let me repeat it, folks, ‘Get your Retail Graphics right and watch the magic unfold.’Large Format graphics – Buildings & Buses alike, ‘Leave no stone unturned.’   Do you still feel you aren’t doing enough for your retail store visibility? Well, go big. Large format graphics are definitely the most vibrant to look at and also the easiest to catch the collective eye. If backed by expert collation and proper messaging, it can indeed work wonders. If you agree with what I am saying, you must be thinking of building wraps.Well, nothing beats building wraps. In my view, it will forever continue to be the big daddy of all outdoor advertising activities. Pick your spots wisely and curate your messaging with utmost relevance. Unless you have done terribly, it’s hard not to get noticed. Whether it’s buildings, construction sites, stadium backdrops, or whatever, don’t miss a chance if you think you have one.Now then, how can you miss out on vehicles? Remember? Leave no stones unturned. As a vehicle, graphics have a tremendous opportunity for brick-and-mortar retailers to reinforce brand values and increase exposure. You can target trucks, buses, vans, trailers, cars, metro-rail, etc. Go for alien-spaceships even if you ever find one.Truth be told, if you have all bases covered, you will not miss out on the opportunity to reach your prospective customers. We all appreciate large format graphics if they are good, don’t we? People have not stopped looking. Maybe you have stopped trying.Store Lighting matters – ‘Make no two ways about it.’Lighting directly impacts the way we think, act, and see things. Well, it is no different in the stores really. From setting customer mood to stimulation of demand, and then to the eventual purchase decision, lighting has a critical role to play. Imagine walking into a store with dull, and boring white lights spread out across the entirety of the length. While there won’t be any lack of brightness, I am not sure if it would qualify as the perfect ambiance.  Several studies over the years have found lighting to impact ones’ mood and cognitive purchase behavior directly.Proper lighting can illuminate a brand’s strategy and messaging. There is a reason why premium products are placed on well-illuminated shelves. Not only does it amplify the overall product display, but it also sends across a message of luxury and domination. Similarly, accent lighting can be used to highlight architectural elements. Dramatic lighting, on the other hand, can almost make a product look superficial.Has it ever occurred to any of you that a product appeared to be all glitz at the store but appeared a little diminished when unwrapped at home? This is the role lighting plays. It can almost draw a consumer to the shelf and score a purchase. There is a reason why retailers across the globe are investing in lighting. They understand that it could be the biggest game-changer ever.Fact File: Findings reckon that a German-based fashion retailer (Gerry Weber) saw a hike of 10% in sales after investing in strategic store lighting.Note to Offline Retailers – “Don’t Resign to Fate, Try reviving it.”I believe everything I have mentioned in this post here is something all you offline retailers and brands already know. My objective was not to educate but remind. Somewhere you will agree that amidst the whole digital revolution, many of you have run out of steam and almost surrendered in so many ways. I agree it’s difficult times to feel rejuvenated. But there is no denying the fact that the definition of shopping has changed with e-commerce.However, I firmly believe that despite all the perks and convenience that online shopping has to offer, there is still a lot of places for offline retail to bring about an experiential resurrection. For starters, “Get your Retail Graphics Right”.

A look at the process Canada follows in response to an extradition

first_imgOTTAWA — Canada’s Department of Justice, through its International Assistance Group, helps Canadian and foreign police and prosecutors by extraditing people to face prosecution or sentencing in the country in which they are charged or convicted.The Extradition Act provides Ottawa with the legal basis to extradite people located in Canada who are sought by an extradition partner. Those partners include:— Countries, such as the United States, with which Canada has an extradition agreement (a bilateral treaty or a multilateral convention);— Countries with which Canada has entered into a case-specific agreement; or— Countries or international courts whose names appear in the schedule to the Extradition Act.In all cases, the conduct for which extradition is sought must be considered criminal in both the requesting country and in Canada.There are three key stages to the Canadian extradition process:— The justice minister must first determine whether to authorize the start of extradition proceedings in the Canadian courts by issuing what’s known as an “Authority to Proceed.”— Once an Authority to Proceed has been issued, the Canadian courts must determine whether there is sufficient evidence to justify the person’s committal for extradition. When someone is committed for extradition, the justice minister must personally decide whether to order the person’s surrender to the foreign state.— Someone sought for extradition may appeal their committal and seek judicial review of the minister’s surrender order — a process that can play out for months or even years in the courts.(Source: Canadian Department of Justice)The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Aimia shareholders opt to sell Aeroplan to Air Canada consortium in vote

first_imgMONTREAL — Shareholders of Aimia Inc. have voted to sell its Aeroplan loyalty program to an Air Canada-led consortium.The $450-million deal will see Air Canada buy Aeroplan for cash and assume $1.9 billion in liabilities to points holders, partially backed by two banks that offer Aeroplan credit cards.Toronto-Dominion Bank and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce will pay Air Canada about $1.2 billion in total, on top of an undisclosed payment from Visa Canada Corp. The banks and Visa have agreed to stay with the loyalty program until at least 2030.Air Canada has said Aeroplan members will see their points transferred to a new loyalty program with the airline when its partnership with Aimia expires in 2020.Analysts say the deal will give Air Canada better access to customer data and likely boost margins in the near term. Aimia, a loyalty analytics company, will come away with more than $1 billion in cash, according to Mittleman Brothers, the company’s largest stakeholder at 17.6 per cent.Aimia shareholders formalized their approval in a vote in Montreal on Tuesday morning, following regulatory clearances from Ottawa in November. The deal — reached in principle last August — is expected to close this month. Companies in this story: (TSX:AC, TSX:AIM, TSX:TD, TSX:CM)The Canadian Presslast_img read more

BC Elementary Schools can improve their grades regardless of location or challenges

first_imgVANCOUVER, B.C. – The Annual Ranking of B.C. Elementary Schools was released by the Fraser Institute.This tool is an easy way for parents to compare the academic performance of the province’s schools. The report card ranks 955 public and independent elementary schools based on 10 academic indicators derived from the provincewide Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) results.“The report card offers parents information they can’t easily get anywhere else, about how their child’s school performs over time and compares to other schools in B.C.,” said Angela MacLeod, a senior policy analyst at the Fraser Institute. These are the rankings for schools in the North and South Peace Region;  43/955 – JS Clark, Fort. Nelson  43/955 – Hudson’s Hope, Hudson’s Hope  95/955 – C.M. Finch, FSJ  95/955 – Clearview.

Tensions escalating between Morocco and Algeria over the Sahara

first_imgBordeaux- Morocco replied to Algeria’s latest verbal attack stating President Bouteflika is trying to hide his country’s domestic trouble.Moroccan officials didn’t appreciate Algeria’s tone when addressing the issue of Western Sahara. MAP, the Kingdom’s official press agency, released a wire today stating the Algerian declarations are “yet another diversion to hide a precarious internal situation.”In a speech read on his behalf by the justice minister, Algeria’s ailing President Abdelaziz Bouteflika had said an international mechanism to monitor human rights in the disputed territory was needed “more than ever.” Bouteflika referred to what he called “the massive and systematic human rights violations that take place inside the occupied territories to suppress the peaceful struggle” of the Sahrawis for freedom of expression and association.“The affirmations of the Algerian President show (…) the great weakness of a regime that is conscious of the unsustainability of its anachronistic position on the Sahara issue,” said MAP on Tuesday.On Saturday, the Istiqlal Party had provoked Algeria, which backs the  pro-independence Polisario Front, by asking the government to officially retrieve Eastern Saharan territories, including Tindouf and Colomb Bechare, which before the French colonization belonged to Morocco. It also asked for the issue to be on the agenda of the UN’s Fourth Committee in charge of decolonization.On Tuesday, Algerian Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra called on Morocco to show  restraint, saying “this incident, as well as the outrageously expansionist  statement by the leader of a Moroccan political party, are totally unacceptable and irresponsible.”On his part, Algerian Ministry Foreign Affairs Spokesman Amar Belani referred to this altercation by saying: “Algeria will not react to the frivolous and irresponsible provocations. We keep all the serenity that comes with defending just causes and international law, far from this medieval Moroccan party’s schizophrenic and unacceptable belching, and whose platform is inspired by a totally obsolete expansionism.” He reaffirmed his country’s will to lobby for a UN mechanism to monitor human rights in the region.The harsh words exchanged by the North African arch-rivals indicate that the neighbors’ relationship is far from being that of brotherly countries that share not only borders, but a common history, culture, religion and language.In his first address before the parliament since he was appointed Morocco’s Foreign Minister, Salah Eddine Mezaouar said on Tuesday that “Algeria tries its best to stall the negotiation process advocated by the United Nations and focuses on marginal elements by means of using human rights in international fora.”© Morocco World News.
