ASTHMA SOCIETY DEMANDS SMOKY COAL BAN EXTENDED TO ALL OF DONEGAL

December 24, 2019 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: oysnvzlet.

first_imgWith a smoky coal ban in place in Letterkenny since 2013, the Asthma Society is calling for support of an all-island ban that would see it extended to all of Donegal.Asthma Society wants smoky coal ban extended to all of Donegal.In anticipation of an all-island ban, the Asthma Society has also launched its campaign for Clean Air calling on householders across Donegal to ‘be a lifesaver’ and burn smokeless coal or an alternative clean fuel to reduce asthma symptoms and save lives.Niamh Kelly, Asthma Society of Ireland said, “With 470,000 people affected, Ireland has the fourth highest prevalence of asthma worldwide. The dangers of smoky coal on public health are well documented and it is also a commonly known asthma trigger. “In advance of an all-island ban, we are calling on fuel consumers across Donegal to burn smokeless coal or an alternative fuel, to reduce asthma symptoms and save lives.”While many lives have been saved with the provincial bans, Dr. Dermot Nolan of the Asthma Society of Ireland’s Medical Advisory Group, estimates that almost 2,000 lives could be saved annually with the implementation of an all-island ban on the sale and distribution of smoky coal.Dr. Nolan said, “While we have made significant strides in recent years with many urban areas now covered by a smoky coal ban, until an all-island ban is implemented, policing these regional bans is difficult and hundreds of thousands of people still breathe pollutants from smoky coal every day.“I see the effects of smoky coal on the most vulnerable in society on a daily basis- in particular patients of chronic lung diseases such as asthma. With the implementation of an all-island ban, we estimate that 2,000 lives would be saved each year.” A representative member survey conducted by the Asthma Society also revealed that poor air quality affects asthma in 78% of members and smoke from coal fire affects asthma in 55% of members.Furthermore, 1 in 5 Asthma Society members surveyed reported to have had an asthma attack as a result of breathing smoke from coal fire.Join the Clean Air Campaign by visiting www.asthma.ie. ASTHMA SOCIETY DEMANDS SMOKY COAL BAN EXTENDED TO ALL OF DONEGAL was last modified: April 3rd, 2014 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:asthma societydonegalletterkennysmoky coal banlast_img read more

first_imgLong story short, here are my NFL picks for Week 11, with a guarantee the 49ers will not to lose (on their bye):Raiders 20, Cardinals 17: Maybe Cards coach Steve Wilks gave the Raiders “impressive” pass rush the vote of confidence it needed. Line: Oakland +5 1/2Packers 27, Seahawks 24: What’s more likely, Aaron Rodgers falls to 0-5 on the road or the Seahawks lose their third straight home game? Stick with the Seahawks’ skid at CenturyLink, where their Dec. 2 prime-time kickoff against the …last_img

OK franchises for black SMMEs

December 19, 2019 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: zuwmcftfp.

first_img30 April 2004Shoprite Holdings and the Department of Trade and Industry’s Khula Enterprise Finance have signed a groundbreaking agreement to grant a limited number of retail franchise concessions, back by outfitting, training and mentoring support, to black entrepreneurs.The agreement, signed in Cape Town on Wednesday by Shoprite chief executive Whitey Basson and Khula managing director Xola Sithole, will grant successful small business (SMME) applicants a number of OK Franchise concessions on negotiable terms.OK Franchise and Khula will provide dual guidance in terms of outfitting, training and mentoring the SMMEs in a deal that promises to deliver maximum viability for the new businesses.Shoprite and Khula will also share the capital investment and risks associated with promoting the black economic empowerment (BEE) initiative, with Khula providing loans to concession holders to acquire equipment and furnish their stores.Shoprite, for its part, will supply stock without soliciting securities from concession holders, especially on the first stock consignment.“The issuing of a limited number of franchises by Shoprite will serve as the initial pilot project on whose successes and lessons the future expansion of this project will rest”, Basson said.“The strategic importance for SMMEs lies in their access to retail space in Shoprite’s multi-national retail chain.”Sithole said partnership with Shoprite would be a model for future partnerships between government agencies like Khula and the private sector for addressing the economic challenges facing the country.Khula, he added, would be launching similar joint venture initiatives across different industries such as mining and petroleum.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more
