Woman stole €760K and blew it on high-end fashion

first_imgA 47-year-old woman who stole €760,000 from her employer has pleaded guilty to 20 sample counts of theft at Donegal Circuit Court.Tara Sweeney, with an address at the Glebe in Donegal Town, spent most of the money on high-end fashion goods purchased online. The thefts occurred at the County Donegal Education Centre over a six year period.Sentencing in the case was today has been put back until next March.The court was told that Tara Sweeney was an accounts administrator at the Donegal Education Centre from 2009 until 2015.RTE reports that she had no formal qualifications but was solely responsible for payroll and had full access to seven bank accounts.It was only in June 2015 when a new director was apppointed to the company that suspicions were raised about large amounts of money missing.Tara Sweeney resigned from her job and Gardaí carried out a search of her home. They discovered ten black refuse bags filled with documentation from her workplace.An expenditure analysis by a specialist accounting firm showed electronic credit transfers totalling over €760,000 going into accounts in her name.The court heard the balances in those accounts were moderate given the level of substantial withdrawals.Detective Garda Ciaran O’Brien told the court that the bulk of money was spent on high end fashion goods including designer handbags by Gucci and Prada, cosmetics, sunglasses, clothes, shoes, perfume and jewellery.The court heard that thousands of items were left in bags and boxes unused once they had been purchased.When interviewed by Gardaí, she admitted that she had made all of these purchases but couldn’t remember individual transactions.The court heard she was shocked at the figure of €760,000 thinking it was more in the region of €250,000. This amount she accepted, was also bad.Giving evidence in court, she said she found it difficult to explain her online shopping addiction other than to say she did it to make herself feel better.She had been under a lot stress in the workplace, had lost her mother and was bringing up her son alone.Tara Sweeney apologised to her family and former co-workers for the pain and distress she had caused.A psychiatric report described her as a loner who had suffered depression in the past but she showed no signs of mental illness and had accepted full responsibility for her actions.Peter Nolan, barrister for Tara Sweeney, said she had indulged in behaviour that was the ruination of her life.He said she had been chasing an illusion whereby purchasing thousands of luxury goods would sort out her life.He said Ms Sweeney was now unemployed and facing repossession of her house.He asked Judge John Aylmer not to send her to prison saying she had engaged in criminal activity but was not a “typical criminal”. Tara Sweeney had no previous convictions.The Judge deferred sentencing until next March.The County Donegal Education Centre have issued proceedings in an effort to recover some of the monies lost.Woman stole €760K and blew it on high-end fashion was last modified: December 19th, 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) Tags:courtdonegalFashionTara Sweeneytheftlast_img read more

Calculating Cooling Loads

first_imgA few decades ago, residential air conditioning was very rare in colder areas of the U.S., and cooling load calculations were usually unnecessary. These days, however, new U.S. homes routinely include air conditioning equipment, even in Minnesota, so most U.S. builders are faced with the need to calculate cooling loads.In my last two blogs (“How to Perform a Heat-Loss Calculation,” Part 1 and Part 2), I discussed the principles behind heat-loss calculations used to size heating equipment. In this blog, I’ll discuss the principles behind cooling-load calculations used to size air-conditioning equipment.Although most building codes require load calculations for heating and cooling equipment installed in new homes, the requirement is widely ignored and rarely enforced. Most HVAC contractors never perform cooling load calculations; instead, they size air conditioners by rules of thumb.The age-old rule of thumb used by most contractors was one ton of cooling equipment for every 400 square feet of conditioned space. In a concession to recent improvements in insulation levels and window specifications, some HVAC contractors have adjusted their rule of thumb, and now size air conditions at one ton per 600 square feet.Because these rules of thumb almost always result in gross oversizing of cooling equipment, most energy experts have been battling rule-of-thumb sizing for years. However, rules of thumb have their place. Using a rule of thumb is not really the problem; the problem is that HVAC contractors are using a bad rule of thumb.At least two well-known energy consultants, Michael Blasnik and Allison Bailes, have proposed a new rule of thumb for sizing air conditioners in homes with insulation that meets minimum code requirements: namely, one ton of cooling per 1,000 square feet. According to Blasnik, “Sizing an air conditioner using tons per square foot actually works pretty well,… Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.

Google Fit to retire web support and focus on Wear OS

first_img Now playing: Watch this: Google Fit adds ‘Move Minutes’ and ‘Heart Points’ Android Wear watches, taking a break from exercise. Josh Miller/CNET If you log on to Google Fit’s website today, you’ll be greeted by a yellow banner saying web support for the health tracker is coming to an end. The Google Fit site will shut down on March 19, Google said in its announcement. If you want to keep track of your activities and continue your health goals, Google suggests you install the Fit app on your Android device or Wear OS smartwatch. The app got a makeover last year that added gamification features like Heart Points and Move Minutes to encourage more daily exercise. For example, Move Minutes suggests users take the stairs instead of the elevator. Heart Points let users earn — you guessed it — points for elevating their heart rate. Higher activity intensity earned double points. Google launched its health platform for smartwatches and added web support in 2014. The program was designed to help people set fitness goals, track activity and add exercise into their daily lives.  Mobile Comments 2center_img Tags 2:14 Share your voice Googlelast_img read more

2020 VW Golf debut delayed because of software setbacks report says

Now, it appears that won’t be the case, as delays have beset VW’s compact car.Software issues have pushed back the unveiling of the eighth-generation VW Golf, Automotive News Europe reports, citing an interview with board member Jürgen Stackmann at the Shanghai Motor Show. “We’ve never hid the fact that software, an area of extreme importance for products in the future, is a serious challenge for us,” Stackmann told ANE. “We have our homework ahead of us, and the teams are under heavy pressure.”Specifically, ANE’s report highlights one area where it’s taking some time to get the software right — over-the-air (OTA) updates. This new kind of vehicle update allows an automaker to beam patches and possibly even new features directly to a vehicle, instead of requiring it to return to the dealer for a physical update. Stackmann specifically pointed to OTA security and homologation requirements in various markets when ANE asked about specific instances causing the delay.Enlarge ImageIt’s not the newest compact on the block, but the seventh-generation Golf is still a compelling buy in the US, offering solid build quality on a platform that’s rewarding to drive. Volkswagen “You’re adding content to a vehicle afterwards, and this is an area where we are working together with the type approval agencies to define these processes. It is new for them as well,” Stackmann told ANE.The issues will allegedly affect the beginning of the eighth-gen Golf’s production, too. Germany’s Der Spiegel reported earlier this month that, instead of building 80,000 Golfs this year as planned, VW will build about 10,000. VW confirmed this move to Der Spiegel, but nevertheless, the automaker remains on target to have the cars on sale in Germany on or around Feb. 24 of next year, with the rest of Europe to follow. The US generally receives a new Golf about a year after the Europeans do, so hopefully VW hammers out all those bumps well ahead of its stateside debut.In lieu of a new Golf to display in Frankfurt, Volkswagen will instead reveal the production version of the ID electric hatchback, which ANE first reported this March. The ID hatch, which might be called the ID Neo, will be Europe’s first foray into Volkswagen’s new all-electric lineup. In the US, that honor will go to the ID Crozz crossover.

Becton Named to the Outland Trophy Watch List

first_imgBecton earned second-team preseason  All-American honors by Sporting News and a fourth-team selection by Phil Steele is the second UofL player to be honored on a watch list this summer.A 6-foot-7, 368-pounder, Becton started all 12 games for the Cardinals last season at left tackle, while starting 22 in his first two seasons. The native of Highland Springs,Va.,scored his first career touchdown when he plowed in from one yard in a win over Indiana State.The 2019 Outland Trophy presented by the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases will be presented during ESPN’s The Home Depot College Football Awards on December 12 from the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta. The official presentation to the winner will be made at the NFID Outland Trophy Awards Dinner sponsored by Werner Enterprises in Omaha, Neb., on January 15, 2020. LOUISVILLE, Ky. – University of Louisville junior offensive lineman Mekhi Becton was of the 83 players named to the 2019 Outland Trophy Preseason Watch List on Tuesday. Story Links The Outland Trophy presented by the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) is given annually to the nation’s top interior lineman. The Outland Trophy, now in its 74th year, is the third-oldest major college football award. Created in 1946 when Dr. John Outland presented the FWAA with a financial contribution to initiate the award, the Outland Trophy has been given to the best interior lineman in college football ever since. Dr. Outland, an All-American at the University of Pennsylvania in the late 1890s, eventually took up practice in Kansas City, MO. An avid outdoorsman, Dr. Outland believed linemen did not get the credit they deserved and wanted an award to recognize them. Louisville hosts Notre Dame for the first time in school history on Sept. 2 at 8 p.m. The game will be shown live on ESPN.  Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
