first_imgAn Inishowen councillor has slammed current live enforcement notices in the peninsula, insisting “common sense” should be applied. Cllr Paul Canning said out of the 228 live enforcement notices in Inishowen 50 of those were related to lorry drivers that had parked their vehicle outside their homes.It is understood the notices were issued because the vehicles were not registered commercial premises. Speaking at the Municipal District meeting yesterday (Thurs), Cllr Canning said: “We have a serious situation and I don’t know if there is a change in policy that is needed.“But I can assure you out of the 228 of them enforcements, there is about 50 of those that will be parking lorries that working and are coming back at night and they are parking their lorries within their own site and the person might not be that happy with them starting early in the morning has phone Donegal County Council and from their an enforcement letter has been sent to these people.“The complications that it creates just for the sake of a lorry being parked in a street is the sort of bureaucracy, red tape that we are dealing with in our enforcement section.“I think it is ridiculous some of the things we are asking people to do and I don’t know if it something that needs to be done under are RBC’s, but we seriously need to look at our policy. “The fact that the number is up at 228 and there is a lot of cases going in front of judges and they are looking at the council in nearly a bit of embarrassment when the client stands up and says this is my story, you tell me where I can park?“We seriously need to use common sense and look at ourselves as a planning enforcement section.”Roisin Kelly, Executive Planner from Donegal County Council, along with members of the chamber said a special workshop would be held on the issue planning enforcement in due course.Councillor slams ‘ridiculous’ planning enforcement laws in Donegal was last modified: October 25th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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)last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Dairy Farmers of America’s Dairy Marketing Service sent a letter to dairies in the Mideast this week announcing they will put a halt to marketing milk from independent producers. Their focus will instead turn solely to cooperative members.The move comes as a result of a saturated milk market and burdensome costs assessed only to co-op members, resulting in the cut of independent farms, according to DFA. Organic producers are exempt from the action.“The letters were sent to all DMS Mideast Dairy independent producers who serve the conventional market. Organic producers were not included in this action. This letter advised them of our intent to terminate the milk marketing arrangement with DMS Mideast producers effective at the end of November,” said Heather McCann, communications manager for Dairy Farmers of America. “They will have until Nov. 30 to procure another market or if they choose not to or are unable to, DFA will offer membership to those DMS producers.”Tensions are high within the dairy industry due to pressure on farms from multiple levels. The core challenge is that there is simply too much milk and not enough demand.“There is a lot of milk in the market, particularly in this part of the country. We have too much milk out there,” McCann said. “We are not seeing a commensurate increase in demand to take up that milk so all of that excess milk results in increased balancing costs, increased transportation costs and the premiums available to help pay producers are also reduced.”Here’s the letter DFA sent to independent producers:“As you are undoubtedly aware, our region has experienced unprecedented growth in our milk supply over the past several years. Currently, supply continues to grow at an overall rate of 2 percent per year, ahead of the national average, with increases of over 4 percent in some states. This has resulted in a supply-demand imbalance that has placed the entire milk marketing system in the eastern United States under severe stress. The costs incurred in balancing surplus milk have skyrocketed while premiums received from customers have fallen and consumer demand, particularly for fluid milk products, has softened appreciably. We expect these trends to continue through 2017 and well into 2018.“As an independent producer marketing your milk through Dairy Marketing Services (DMS), there is no practical method available under Federal Order regulations for the sharing of marketing costs and revenue fairly and equitably among all producers in the marketplace, independents and cooperative members alike. As a result, we are unable to continue marketing your milk under the current DMS arrangement.“Within the next few days, we will be sending you a six-month notice of termination. During this period, we encourage you to find another milk market in the Mideast Area. If you do not wish to or cannot find another market, Dairy Farmers of America, Inc. (DFA) will offer you membership and continue to market your milk. As a one-time accommodation and benefit to you, DFA will offer two special terms for the first year of membership. First, for the first year of membership, you will have the option to not pay a capital retain (equity). Second, for the first year, DFA will allow you to terminate your membership at any time, with 30 days’ prior written notice.“Furthermore, as part of DFA, you will be entitled to access all member programs and services including insurance, buying/farm inputs, risk management and lending programs. These programs are designed to bring value to you by helping you operate your dairy more economically and efficiently.“We have sincerely appreciated our relationship with you, and will continue to work hard every day to help support Mideast Area dairy producers and our industry.”last_img read more

Now it seems Tumblr is also attracting the employees of these media outlets. Mark Coatney, editor at Newsweek and the man behind the magazine’s Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook accounts, has announced he is leaving the publication to join the Tumblr team. Coatney says the decision was obviously a difficult one for him to make, but that Tumblr, to him, represents the future of publishing. “One of the reasons I’ve long been interested in online journalism is in the ways it can be, in a way no other medium can, a two-way communication between writer and reader; Tumblr is one of the best ways I’ve seen to accomplish that,” he wrote on his Tumblelog today.Coatney’s new position will be to be a liaison for other media publications that want to extend their reach on Tumblr the way companies like Newsweek, The New Yorker and The New York Times have. His philosophy is that editors should not simply be shameless self-promoters, but should instead leverage these various platforms to engage with their communities at the personal level.The move to Tumblr is a clear sign that the micro-blogging service is very interested in helping traditional media find a new voice online. For Coatney, this isn’t the first time he’s shifted gears in his media career. Before joining Newsweek, he worked as a writer and editor for Time Magazine, where he also helped to create the first iteration of Time.com.last_img read more

first_img This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Exterior wall insulation? That usually means rigid foam and furring strips — although occasionally, it means mineral wool insulation and furring strips.But there are other options. Two new products offer builders new ways to keep their wall sheathing warm.InSoFast panels — rectangles of expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam with embedded plastic “studs” that hold drywall screws — have been around for years. The product was developed as a quick and convenient way for homeowners to insulate the interior of basement walls. The company’s original product (the InSoFast UX 2.0 panel) is 2 inches thick and rated at R-8.5.InSoFast is now promoting a thicker panel, the InSoFast EX 2.5 panel, for use on the exterior of wall sheathing. (In many ways, the InSoFast EX 2.5 panels resemble the Quad-Lock R-etro system. For more on Quad-Lock R-etro, see my review in the fourth issue of GBA’s Insider magazine. GBA also lists the Quad-Lock R-etro system in our Green Products Guide.)Each InSoFast EX 2.5 panel measures 24 inches by 48 inches by 2 1/2 inches thick. The EPS has a density of 1.25 pounds per cubic foot. The panels have tongue-and-groove joints around the perimeter that are described as “self-flashing.” While these joints are designed to shed water, the foam panels have not been approved for use as a water-resistive barrier (WRB), so builders will still need to install a layer of housewrap or asphalt felt to protect the wall sheathing.The new 2 1/2-inch-thick panels have several features that differ from the original 2-inch panels designed for interior use:While the interior panels only have to support gypsum drywall, the new exterior panels have to be strong enough to support siding. According to InSoFast president Ed Scherrer, the plastic “studs” are strong enough for this purpose, and are capable of supporting fiber-cement siding or even stone veneer.Anyone who intends to… 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.center_img Start Free Trial Already a member?
