GAWDA SMC cancelled

first_imgGAWDA logoGAWDA logoThe SMC was due to be held at the JW Marriott in Austin, Texas, and featured a contact booth programme as well as guest speakers, including Jens Luehring, President & CEO, Messer America.The event is one of the biggest on the calendar for the North American industrial gases industry, and last year’s SMC attracted over 500 attendees.”GAWDA has been monitoring the CDC, World Health Organization and John Hopkins websites for the past few weeks,” GAWDA said in a statement.”During this time, we have been in communication with the facilities in Austin to assess what options we were available. Large conferences like the SMC are planned years in advance, with the facilities, as well as careful coordination with the city, after multiple inquires, we learned that rescheduling was not an option. This health crisis has evolved, to where mass gatherings are being cancelled to mitigate the spread of the virus.”GAWDA advises members to cancel hotel reservations with the JW Marriott Austin and W Hotel, and will issue refunds to all attendees.last_img read more

How Lotto rapist publicity has helped claimants seeking compensation

first_imgThe publicity generated by the Lotto rapist case, a newspaper favourite for many years, seems to be helping those who suffered serious crimes against their person. This week, national firm Thompsons said that this publicity, as well as the precedent it set, has helped a group of men win compensation from a diocese that was once home to a paedophile priest. Thompsons said that it recently won an undisclosed ‘substantial’ sum for three brothers who were abused by Bernard Traynor, a trainee priest working in the Hexham and Newcastle Diocese. Traynor, now 56, abused the boys over a number of years in the late 70s while they were in the care of St Vincents children’s home in Newcastle. He pleaded guilty to the abuse in Newcastle Crown Court in 1995, receiving a two-year probation order. According to Thompsons, the men, who did not want to be identified, were advised at the time by a solicitor that they couldn’t claim compensation for limitation reasons. Then they heard about the case of Iorworth Hoare, the convicted rapist who later won £7m on the lottery. Hoare, a serial rapist, spent 16 years in prison for the attempted rape of a retired schoolteacher. He bought his winning lottery ticket while on day release. His victim, after hearing of his lottery win, launched an action to sue Hoare for compensation for psychological injuries sustained by Hoare’s attack. The case went all the way to the House of Lords, as it was then, which ruled in early 2008 that courts have the discretion to extend the limitation period within which compensation claims can be made, if the case involves serious assault. The case was referred back to the High Court, where Mr Justice Coulson denied that the ruling would open the floodgates of litigation, and allowed her claim to proceed. It was the media frenzy, often criticised by judges, that alerted Bernard Traynor’s victims to a potential claim for compensation against the Hexham and Newcastle Diocese. Thompsons settled the case for all three men, while of course noting that compensation cannot cure all.last_img read more

Family’s battle to get home repaired

first_img Dawood Hendricks in the upstairs bedroom that was destroyed by a fire. 1 of 3 Dawood Hendricks in the upstairs bedroom that was destroyed by a fire. The City of Cape Town has yet to repair a Bonteheuwel family’s home, seven months after an electrical fault caused a fire that destroyed parts of it, including the roof.As winter tightens its grip on the city, the Hendricks family of seven are forced to sleep in the small lounge of the ruined Dissel Road maisonette they rent from the City. When it rains, water runs down from the fire-gutted upstairs bedroom, and the family have had no electricity since the fire in December.Shihaam and Dawood Hendricks have four children aged 5 to 14. They live with Mr Hendricks’ sister, Shirley Hendricks, who is the City’s tenant. “I have been everywhere,” Ms Hendricks said. “Nobody can give us answers. I have become a familiar face at the local housing office. We live in unsafe conditions, and it is winter now.” Mr Hendricks said he had been unable to sleep properly since the storm on Thursday July 9, and during the nights when it rained he had to use buckets to scoop up water.The family also throw whatever fabric they can get, including their clothes, on the stairs to soak up the water. And the cold, winter wind howls throughout the house. City spokesman Luthando Tyhalibongo said they would investigate, but he couldn’t say when the repairs would begin and blamed the Covid-19 lockdown regulations for the delay.However, Ms Hendricks said the City had had three months before lockdown started to repair their home.Mr Tyhalibongo said the City would attend to the case as “a matter of urgency”, but when Athlone News asked for a more specific time frame, he said the City would do the repairs “as soon as it is able to”.Ward councillor Angus McKenzie said he had been in communication both with the family and the City’s human settlements department about the case. The City would wait first for the insurance payout before appointing a contractor to do the repairs, he said.“The department informed me that at the beginning of the year, they were busy with a process to request quotes for repairs to more than 40 fire-damaged units. During lockdown, the challenge was to get material from stores. Then the supply chain management could also at one stage not access the sixth floor at the Civic Centre, because of a Covid-19 positive case, and hence could not access the documents. The situation is not (ideal), but unfortunately there are processes that need to be followed,” Mr McKenzie said. The damage caused by the fire.

Letters

first_imgTransatlantic tram terminologySir – The article ’Trolley launch’ (RG 1.01 p10) regarding the extension of San Diego’s light rail system may cause people to wonder why Americans call trams ’trolleys’.The word originated in New Jersey when the early Asbury Park system was electrified. The Daft system of overhead was chosen, consisting of parallel wires held in gauge by an open bottom ’C’ clip. A small four-wheeled cart with double flanged wheels rode on the wires and collected the current, attached to the vehicle by a wire. Since Asbury Park was a seaside and fishing town the residents decided the car was trolling for power, and in time the cart became known as the troller and the entire vehicle became a ’trolley’. The Daft system was soon discarded as it made no practical provision for points or crossovers, and the familiar pole replaced it.But the word stuck, and all America called streetcars trolleys. While ’streetcar’ or ’car’ is also used, the world trolley is widely accepted. Our Canadian cousins use streetcar but if in Toronto you ask where the trolley stop is you get a blank stare. ’Tram’ is a foreign word almost meaningless here.William R WrightCranford, New Jersey, USAlast_img read more

Rail in the November 2017 UK budget

first_imgUK: A new railcard, replacement of the Tyne & Wear Metro fleet, signalling and communications upgrades and the East West Rail corridor were among the rail projects highlighted in the budget presented to parliament by Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond on November 22.A £1·7bn Transforming Cities Fund will support intra-city transport, targeting projects which drive productivity by improving connectivity, reducing congestion and using new technology. Half of this will be allocated competitively and half per capita to the six combined authorities with elected metro mayors.The Chancellor announced that £84m would be provided for digital cab signalling, and £5m would be allocated for developing digital railway upgrades in southeast England, east London, and to facilitate more frequent and reliable services on the branch to Moorgate in London.From spring 2018 there will be a new railcard offering a one-third off-peak discount to passengers aged 26 to 30; the government anticipates this will increase the number of journeys made. The government is to consult on commercial options to improve mobile communications for passengers, and will provide up to £35m to upgrade Network Rail’s test track at Melton Mowbray, install trackside infrastructure on the Trans-Pennine route between Manchester, Leeds and York and support the roll-out of full-fibre and 5G networks.In October the government announced £300m towards ensuring High Speed 2 infrastructure can accommodate future Northern Powerhouse and Midlands rail services between Liverpool and Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds and York, as well as to Leicester and other destinations in the East Midlands and London. This will also enable future services between Liverpool and Leeds to operate via Manchester Piccadilly station.Hammond said the government would provide £337m to replace the Tyne & Wear Metro fleet with ‘modern energy-efficient trains’.The western section of East West Rail is scheduled to be complete by 2024, allowing passenger services to operate between Oxford and Bedford, and from Aylesbury to Milton Keynes. An East West Rail Co is being established to accelerate delivery of the central section between Bedford and Cambridge, leveraging private-sector investment and aiming for completion by the mid-2020s.The government has committed £5m to develop proposals for Cambridge South station, and is starting a study on the enhancements needed to accommodate future rail growth across Cambridgeshire. The government will also provide £300 000 to co-fund a study of opportunities for new stations, services and routes in Oxfordshire, as a first step towards opening a station at Cowley.The government will provide £2m to develop options to address constraints on the Coventry – Leamington route.Hammond said the government recognised the need for investment in London’s infrastructure to support its growth, and would continue to work with Transport for London on developing ‘fair and affordable’ plans for Crossrail 2, including an independent review of financing. In Wales, the government will invest in infrastructure upgrades that will provide direct services from Pembroke Dock to London via Carmarthen on Intercity Express trains. Additionally, the Department for Transport continues to develop proposals for a number of potential schemes including station improvements at Cardiff Central and Swansea, upgrading the slow lines between Cardiff and Severn Tunnel Junction, and improving journey times between Swansea and Cardiff, from South Wales to Bristol and London and on the North Wales Main Line. The government will also consider proposals to improve journey times on the Wrexham – Bidston route and provide necessary funding to develop the business case.The National Infrastructure Commission is to undertake a study into the future of freight infrastructure for publication in spring 2019. Industry responsesCommenting on the budget, Paul Plummer, Chief Executive of the Rail Delivery Group, said it was ‘good news that there is support for local decision-making, and investment in skills and infrastructure, particularly in the north of England’. He also welcomes the announcement that the government had ‘chosen to build on the forthcoming trial of the 26-30 Railcard by Greater Anglia on behalf of the wider industry.’ Darren Caplan, Chief Executive of the Railway Industry Association, said ‘we can applaud the Treasury’s decision to allow Network Rail to allocate an additional £200m to spend on renewals in Control Period 5. This would not have happened if the rail sector had not made the case for funding the CP5 shortfall up to March 2019, and it will certainly go some way to helping deliver a better railway’. However, RIA was ‘disappointed not to get the full £500m brought forward from CP6 and we continue to urge the Treasury to fully fund the remaining CP5 shortfall; but it is good that significant funds have been unlocked in the meantime. ‘Longer-term, we look forward to working with government, Network Rail and others to improve the funding mechanism for the rail system to avoid “boom and bust” at the beginning and end of control periods, which makes renewing the railways up to 30% more expensive, and ultimately threatens jobs and investment and the ability of SMEs in the rail supply sector to survive.’Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said he cautiously welcomed the ‘warm words’ of support for Crossrail 2, but urged the government to progress delivery of the scheme which he said was ‘essential for the future prosperity of London and the southeast.’Ed Thomas, UK Head of Transport at KPMG, said ‘a clear connection was made between the proposed additional 1 million homes in the Oxford – Milton Keynes –Cambridge corridor and investment in new rail and road links along it. Whilst no new money was announced today, the scale of this housing ambition is likely to mean that government will ultimately support the East West Rail and roads schemes that are under development with public funding. Previously, it had been looking to purely privately-funded solutions’, he noted.last_img read more
