The Minister of State for the Gaeltacht is being called upon to visit flood-hit families in Gaoth Dobhair who lost a bridge to their homes.The extended O Duibhir families from Bunbeg have been relying on a temporary footbridge to access their houses after their original bridge was swept away by the River Clady in August.But the replacement bridge is so unsuitable that an ambulance was unable to access the home of one ill family member, who is 79 years old, and paramedics were forced to wheel him to the road. Mr O Duibhir at the ambulance.Local councillor Michael Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig is now calling on the Gaeltacht Minister of State, Sean Kyne TD, to visit the O Duibir homes when he visits the area next week.“It is very difficult for the families to get on with their lives when they cannot get their bridge rebuilt. The council’s response is that this is a private bridge, but if you look at LIS roads, they are all private roads funded through the State. So why wouldn’t this bridge be funded?,” Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig said.“Myself and Pat the Cope Gallagher TD have been fighting for these families. As a councillor I appreciate that this is a private bridge, but at the same time the State should look after the wellbeing of all its citizens.”The homes of three families in Gweedore including a wheelchair bound resident who are trapped after flooding demolished the bridge into their homes. (North West Newspix)Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig said he hopes that Mr Kyne TD could find a way of identifying funding sources if he saw the reality of the family’s circumstances. He said: “The Minister will be in Gaoth Dobhair on the 26th, a half a mile from where the families live, and I have invited him to meet the family and see how the situation affects them.“The family has been left in limbo. One man had to get the ambulance called twice since the bridge collapsed and every time he has to be carted from his house. This is not acceptable. It’s very difficult for families to get on with their lives, the oil lorry can’t even reach them.“Next week is a great opportunity for the Minister to meet the family and to help them.” Gaeltacht Minister urged to visit stranded Gaoth Dobhair family was last modified: November 19th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)

A spokeswoman for Netflix says employees will be on site to guide users through the steps.Streaming companies have been expanding their downloadable content as more subscribers watch entertainment while in transit.

June 28, 2019 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Posted: June 28, 2019 BOSTON (AP) — A man who authorities say paid $250,000 to get his son into the University of Southern California as a fake volleyball recruit became the 51st person Friday charged in the sweeping college admissions bribery scheme.Jeffrey Bizzack, 59, has agreed to plead guilty to a fraud conspiracy charge, federal prosecutors said. He’s the first person to be charged since March, when authorities announced the arrests of dozens of prominent parents and athletic coaches at elite universities across the country.Bizzack’s lawyer said his client “voluntarily came forward to be accountable for his actions and accept responsibility.”“He deeply regrets what he did, and especially the effect it will have on his son. His son knew nothing of Mr. Bizzack’s actions. Mr. Bizzack will do his best to make up for this mistake and apologizes to USC and its hardworking students,” Attorney Seth Berman said in an email.Federal prosecutors say they will recommend nine months in prison.Bizzack, of Solana Beach, California, gave a total of $200,000 to the sham charity run by the admissions consultant at the center of the scheme and sent a $50,000 check to the USC “Galen Center” to have his son designated as a recruit for the volleyball team, authorities said. His son was formally accepted in March 2018.The consultant, Rick Singer, then made monthly payments of $20,000 to USC’s then-senior associate athletic director, Donna Heinel, for her help getting Bizzack’s son and other children of prominent parents into the school.Heinel has pleaded not guilty in the case.Singer began cooperating with investigators last year in the hopes of getting a lighter sentence and helped build the case against the parents. He pleaded guilty in March.Fourteen parents have pleaded guilty to taking part in the scam, which authorities say involved bribing coaches and rigging standardized test scores.They include “Desperate Housewives” actress Felicity Huffman, who admitted to paying $15,000 to have someone correct the answers on her daughter’s SAT.Parents fighting the charges include “Full House” star Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, who are accused of paying $500,000 to get their daughters into USC as fake crew recruits. They haven’t publicly commented on the allegations.The first person to be sentenced in the case — former Stanford sailing coach John Vandemoer — avoided prison time . He’s serving two years of supervised release, including six months of home confinement with electronic monitoring and was ordered to pay a $10,000 fine.____Follow Alanna Durkin Richer at http://www.twitter.com/aedurkinricher AP, AP Solana Beach parent charged in college admission bribery scam
Dan Cohen AUTHOR Defense spending on contracts and payroll accounted for 8.5 percent of Virginia’s gross domestic product, making it the top ranked state by that metric in fiscal 2016. Virginia was followed by Hawaii (7.6 percent), Alaska (5.5 percent), Maryland (5.2 percent) and Alabama (5.2 percent) in the ranking of states by defense spending as a portion of their economies. On average, defense spending accounted for 2.2 percent of all states’ GDP in FY 2016. Virginia also ranked highly in absolute terms for attracting defense dollars, coming in second, with $42.7 billion, behind California, at $48.8 billion; Texas came in third for total defense spending with $33.3 billion.Almost 60 percent of total defense spending, $378.5 billion, went to 10 states.Those rankings are included in the latest analysis of defense spending by state prepared by the Office of Economic Adjustment. By highlighting states’ reliance on military installations and contractors, the report can be used “to assess potential exposure to fluctuations in defense spending and to target assistance to create more resilient communities and companies,” according to its executive summary. The listing for each state shows the top defense contractors and ranks the top 10 counties by contract spending, personnel spending, and number of active-duty and civilian personnel.Two states, California and Connecticut, account for half of the top 10 counties for attracting defense contract spending:Fairfax County, Va. — $9.9 billionSan Diego County, Calif. — $8.4 billionLos Angeles County, Calif. — $6.2 billionMadison County, Ala. — $5.4 billionSanta Clara County, Calif. — $5.3 billionLouis County, Mo. — $5.2 billionKing County, Wash. — $5.1 billionNew London County, Conn. — $4.8 billionFairfield County, Conn. — $4.4 billionOrange County, Fla. — $4.0 billion Photo by Steve Earley

Google Nest Hub: $59 (save $70) Tags Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. Read DJI Osmo Action preview Amazon Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand.

Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free.

It normally runs $350, but this deal drops it to $261 when you apply promo code 19LABOR10 at checkout. Rylo Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners.

Using the app, Cricket Wireless customers across the US can choose to view ads on their phone and, in return, earn points that can be redeemed for bill credits. The Ad It Up app will come “preloaded on millions of select Cricket Android phones,” the companies said, but customers can choose to opt in or out from their devices. When customers register for the program, they’ll be asked to choose their interests so the program can show them targeted ads. “This deployment represents a sizable opportunity for both advertisers reaching Cricket customers as well as telecom companies looking to build and generate revenue in revolutionary ways,” Adfone CEO Brian Boroff said in a release.

JBL Soundgear wearable speaker: $90 (save $160) $999 Apple iPhone XS Post a comment Sarah Tew/CNET $59 at eBay Mentioned Above Apple iPhone XS (64GB, space gray) Cricket,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. $999 Use promo code 19LABOR10 to get an unusually good deal on JBL’s interesting hybrid product — not quite headphones, and not quite a traditional speaker, but something you wear like neckphones to listen to music on the go. See It I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Kapil Sharma, Krushna AbhishekSony TVThe Kapil Sharma Show never fails to entertain its viewers and the upcoming episode will be filled with comedy.It will be graced by popular playback singers – Alka Yagnik, Himesh Reshammiya and Javed Ali – the judges of the reality show Super Singer as well as contestants of the show such as, Thanu Khan, Mohammed Fazil, Nistha Sharma, Urgen Tsomuand Guntas along with the captains of the show Salman Ali, Nitin Kumar, Sachin Valmiki and Jyotica Tangri.According to a report in Times Now, a six-year-old, Thanu Khan will be seen scolding Kapil on The Kapil Sharma Show because of a very cute reason that will leave viewers in splits.The report said that the young contestant before walking towards the stage for his performance left a fruit (litchi) with Kapil. However, right before his performance, the kid asked the comedian about his fruit’s whereabouts and Kapil answered that he ate it. Realising the same, young kid scolded the comedian in the most adorable way.”I gave Kapil ji my fruit to hold till the time I perform, but he took the chance and ate it while I was performing. I expressed my disappointment when he ate my litchi but as nice he is with his comedy, he offered me all the fruits on the table,” Thanu Khan said, as reported by the web portal.In his personal life, Kapil is on his way to becoming a father. Although the ace comedian hasn’t made any official announcement about the same, reports are doing the rounds that his pregnant wife Ginni Chatrath is in her first trimester.Apparently, ever since Kapil learnt about Ginni’s pregnancy, he has reportedly made a lot of changes in his busy shoot schedule to be with his wife. Initially, Kapil used to quickly wind up for the day from shoot and rush home to take care of Ginni. But now, Ginni has shifted to Amritsar, Punjab, and with her family. Kapil, who is in Mumbai busy shooting for The Kapil Sharma Show, is flying to and fro whenever he gets time from his busy schedule.
