Today we speak instead of Safeguarding because Safeguarding is a concept that reaches beyond protection, responding not only to problems which have occurred but incorporates the prevention of harm and the promotion of welfare.  Safeguarding also extends beyond children to include people of all ages and abilities who may have vulnerabilities which exposes them to a risk of abuse.”“We are, in Limerick Diocese, in a stronger place than we were. We have a range of services in place and very active training programmes. The greatest danger for us is that we might relax and believe that the worst is in some way behind us.  To take this view would be a profound error which would compound the historical failures.“Sometimes however, it seems as if all of us, all of society, can want to simplify this issue and move on.  To stay with an awareness of the pervasiveness of abuse and those dark parts of our human nature and the tendency to exploit weakness and vulnerability, may be almost too much.”Bishop Leahy said that from his own meetings with victims, he was critically aware of the impact of abuse on them and their families.“This can impact on all dimensions of their lives and there are no quick or simple solutions to what are sometimes their lifelong struggles.  I am also very conscious of the strain on people working in voluntary organisations as they struggle with what at times seem to be enormous limitations on resources.“I am aware of the professionalism and commitment of people in the statutory sector who are the first to acknowledge the difficulties which they struggle with every day.  I believe the presentations from each of the key Statutory Agencies which form the core of this conference will serve to illustrate their commitment to developing new and innovative practices and will provide all of us in the other sectors an opportunity to reflect on our collective challenges as a community.Addressed by senior representatives of organisations with an involvement in safeguarding in the Limerick area, including Chief Superintendent David Sheahan, who spoke about the level of interagency collaboration that is taking place, quoting extracts from the NBSCCCI audit of Limerick Diocese that acknowledged the unique engagement between Limerick Diocese, an Garda Siochana and HSE/ TUSLA.More news on social issues here Previous articleWalking/running guide highlights sights and sounds of LimerickNext articleWork on Killaloe by-pass to star next year Editor WhatsApp Email Funeral tribute for the Limerick Garda known as ‘Robocop’ center_img New Garda operation to ensure public compliance with COVID-19 travel restrictions RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter COVID-19 volunteerism is a glimpse of what the future can be for church and community Man arrested after buildings in Limerick city centre allegedly damaged by gunfire NewsSocietyBishop of Limerick wants no let up in safeguarding vulnerable peopleBy Editor – January 12, 2018 2047 TAGSAn Garda SíochánaBishop Brendan LeahyChief Superintendent David SheahacollaborationConferenceDiocese of Limerickeducational sectorsHSElimerickMary Immaculate CollegeNBSCCCIpredatorssafeguardingstatutoryTuslavoluntary Printlast_img read more

U.S. Air Products & Chemicals announces 4GW green hydrogen project with Saudi Arabia’s ACWA Power

first_imgU.S. Air Products & Chemicals announces 4GW green hydrogen project with Saudi Arabia’s ACWA Power FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Greentech Media:Air Products & Chemicals, the U.S. industrial gas giant, announced plans on Tuesday to build a green hydrogen plant in Saudi Arabia powered by 4 gigawatts of wind and solar power, the world’s largest such project announced so far.The $5 billion plant will be jointly owned by Air Products, Saudi Arabia’s ACWA Power and Neom, a new mega-city planned near Saudi Arabia’s borders with Egypt and Jordan.The completed facility will produce 650 tons of green hydrogen daily, enough to run around 20,000 hydrogen-fueled buses, Air Products said. The fuel will be shipped as ammonia to end markets globally then converted back to hydrogen. Ammonia production is expected to start in 2025.Pennsylvania-based Air Products claims to be the world’s largest producer of hydrogen and a leader in the liquefied natural gas field technology. The company trades on the New York Stock Exchange with a market value of nearly $60 billion.The project would be a big step forward for Saudi Arabia’s ambition for Neom to become an important global center for renewable energy and green hydrogen. The country is establishing Neom as a special economic zone, with an ambition to host 1 million people from around the world. “This is a pivotal moment for the development of Neom and a key element in Saudi Vision 2030 contributing to the Kingdom’s clean energy and circular carbon economy strategy,” Neom CEO Nadhmi Al Nasr said in a statement.Speaking to analysts on a conference call on Tuesday, Air Products CEO Seifi Ghasemi said the company is confident the project will be viable without subsidies given the accelerating global race for low-carbon transport fuels. Any government support would be “icing on the cake.”[John Parnell]More: World’s largest green hydrogen project unveiled in Saudi Arabialast_img read more

Serena dumped out of US Open

first_imgRelatedPosts Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Thiem claims his first Grand Slam title after thrilling fightback in US Open Serena pulls out of Italian Open Victoria Azarenka got the better of old foe Serena Williams to reach her first grand slam final for seven years.Williams looked supreme in the first set as a US Open final rematch against Naomi Osaka beckoned but Azarenka fought back superbly to win 1-6 6-3 6-3.Williams was not helped by a jarred ankle early in the deciding set that required heavy strapping and her quest to equal Margaret Court’s record of 24 grand slam singles titles goes on.Instead it is two-time Australian Open champion Azarenka who will face Osaka in a quite remarkable story of resurgence.The 31-year-old had been a shadow of her former self since her stop-start return from maternity leave in 2017 and had almost been written off as a major contender prior to her victory on the same courts in the Western & Southern Open last month.A lengthy custody battle with her former partner over their three-year-old son, Leo, kept her away for several spells and took its toll on and off court, while her confidence ebbed away.This was the former world number one’s first slam semi-final since her second consecutive final against Williams in New York in 2013, both of which were high-quality, close affairs but both were won by the American.But this was every bit as good, with Azarenka continuing the form that saw her lose just one game against Elise Mertens in the quarter-finals.Williams, by contrast, had survived three-set battles against Sloane Stephens, Maria Sakkari and Tsvetana Pironkova but crushed any suggestion of vulnerability in a pulsating start.Azarenka helped her with a nervy first service game and Williams needed no second invitation to crush her opponent’s weaker second serve.In no time she was 4-0 up, and in just 34 minutes she wrapped up the opening set.It seemed a minor setback when Williams missed the chance to break for 2-0 in the second set, but that gave Azarenka a foothold and she grabbed it, playing a superb return game to move 3-2 in front.Azarenka’s backhand in particular was really firing now and she began to dictate from the middle of the court, marching to her chair after breaking for a second time to win the set.Suddenly it was Williams needing to change the momentum, and what she certainly did not need was an injury to her troublesome ankles.The 38-year-old clutched her left ankle as Azarenka made it deuce in the second game of the deciding set, and the Belarusian broke after a lengthy medical timeout.Williams threw everything she had at Azarenka as she tried to claw her way back into the match, her screams reverberating around the empty Arthur Ashe Stadium.But Azarenka held her nerve superbly and got the sweetest of rewards, sealing victory with an ace for her first win over Williams at a slam in 11 tries.Tags: Serena WilliamsUS OpenVictoria Azarenkalast_img read more
