A Donegal deputy has warned that Donegal Town will see more flooding chaos if pressure is not applied on the government to approve funding.Pat the Cope Gallagher TD, who was in Donegal in the wake of Storm Lorenzo on Friday, said that action must be taken urgently to complete flood prevention works in key areas.The alarm was raised after 5am on Friday morning when heavy downpours hit Donegal Town during Storm Lorenzo. Fourteen homes and four businesses were damaged by floodwater, with a number of roads blocked during the morning. “Overall the picture in Donegal Town was critical, with serious flooding in Clarendon Drive, New Row, Drumlonagher and serious potential threat of flooding in Castle Street, in the area around the John Bosco Centre and Magee’s factory area, the latter areas only saved by the hide tide not fully coinciding with the heavy rainfall which had occurred earlier,” Pat the Cope said.Sean Bonner clearing out the water from the Alzhemiers Society charity shop in Donegal Town on Friday (North West Newspix)Deputy Gallagher said he has been in contact with the OPW and Minister of State Kevin Boxer Moran on the urgent need for Flood Relief in south Donegal.“The OPW have confirmed that in relation to Brookfield, that the bridge which is causing the flooding has already had a Part 8 approved for works to be carried out, and all that is required is sanction of a grant of €70,000,” Deputy Gallagher said. “Today’s flooding at Brookfield where at least 7 houses have been seriously flooded in this area alone, along with other flooding of lands, yards and the nearby Gaelscoil.” He added: “What is immediately required for the Donegal Town is for the Government to sanction a full technical assessment of the town and environs, in order that a comprehensive strategy can be put in place. “Presently the initial flooding survey compiled for Donegal Town, is part of a list of over 300 similar projects nationwide, and unless serious pressure applied, Donegal Town will languish without any progress being made.“The Government, local authority and Department of Social Protection need to provide immediate assistance to all those seriously affected by today’s flooding. “This is the third flooding of Donegal Town in the past three years alone, this cannot be allowed to continue, action must be taken and in order to get the necessary measures in place, the OPW and Government need to sanction for funding for Donegal Town flooding prevention,” concluded Pat the Cope.

3D printing is capturing the attention of a lot of people these days, with promises to disrupt the manufacturing process. Devices that can produce finished objects from malleable substrates conjure up utopian visions of Star Trek-like replicators. The promise: We will eventually build anything we want at the touch of a button.But like many promises of technology that will usher in a golden age, the reality is far less shiny. 3D printing will change the way goods are manufactured, but the old ways will still essentially remain in play, albeit with some changes.In other words, don’t count out the Rust Belt quite yet.Inside 3D PrintingWhether you call it 3D printing or additive manufacturing, the process of creating objects by layering material in precise ways to build goods is nothing new. The core technologies behind it have been around for a couple of decades.What’s changed is the availability of sturdier materials used to create printed objects, better software to design the objects, and the general decrease in costs of hardware. These factors have combined to make 3D printing much more affordable.And analysts are noticing: Last week, Gartner released its first forecast on 3D printing, which predicted that global shipments of 3D printers in the sub-$100,000 range will grow by 49% to 56,500 units by the end of 2013, and then jump up another 75% to just over 98,000 units in 2014. Here’s how Gartner research director Pete Basiliere put it:The 3D printer market has reached its inflection point. While still a nascent market, with hype outpacing the technical realities, the speed of development and rise in buyer interest are pressing hardware, software and service providers to offer easier-to-use tools and materials that produce consistently high-quality results.With so much growth potential, it is easy to see a world where additive-manufacturing machines start replacing factories that use assembly lines and injection-molding to create products. But there are some good reasons why this won’t happen on a large scale.What 3D Printing Can’t DoRight now, the biggest limitation for 3D-printed goods is their lack of complexity. While 3D-printed objects can be very intricate in their designs, they are still essentially built in one piece. If you want moving parts, you can create them, but you will nearly always have to remove any rafts or supports that will turn the single-piece printed object into something with movable components.That’s a big deal, because it places limitations on what can be made. Yes, there are a lot of single-piece items to be manufactured, but in order to create items with more than one part, a manufacturer will have to introduce some sort of assembly system, either human-driven or automated. This assembly process will either involve printing separate parts and snapping them together, or removing the supports from a single printed device to create something that moves.

Tags:#3d printing#additive manufacturing#manufacturing Why You Love Online Quizzes 7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… brian proffitt Related Posts At this point, more limitations come into play. Once assembly processes are introduced, labor has to be managed, as will supply chain—components have to be ready for each stage of assembly. You can have 3D-printed components at the ready, but right now 3D printing is slower than molding methods. The biggest advantage to 3D-printed objects—customizability—is minimized when it comes to assembly. After all, customize a part too much, and it won’t fit with other parts.In the case of converting a single printed object to something that is movable, supply chain isn’t as much of a problem, but labor time and expertise will still have to be taken into account.This is mostly a question of economics. Unless some truly artisan products are being created, any sort of assembly process will need to rely on a supply chain. And 3D printing, by its nature, will have trouble keeping up with demand.Mass production of products still favors the assembly line and molding processes, because the economics will support the upfront expense of creating molds and other fabrication techniques. This is why, unless 3D printing radically improves, it will not be involved in mass-produced goods.What 3D Printing Can DoThough factories won’t be closing due to 3D printing, there will still be some interesting additions to the world of manufacturing now and in the near future.Smaller-batch production is what 3D printing will excel in, with products that will better serve the needs to the customer. Like micropublishing, which prints and binds books on demand for self-published authors, small-batch products can serve niche customers with much greater efficiency.Developing markets will also gain some benefit from 3D printing. In areas of the world where infrastructure is poor and hence labor, materials or distribution channels are difficult to obtain, 3D printing could help get products to market far less expensively than traditional manufacturing processes. One key area where 3D printing could help: printing agricultural tools to make them more readily available for small-farm workers.3D printing will also be indispensable in prototyping and design testing, enabling designers to get their finished products to market a lot faster and with presumably better quality.Perhaps, one day, you will be able to print your new tablet computing device, or that ham and Swiss on rye. But for now, 3D printing will thrive in the niches of manufacturing that large-scale production has trouble filling.Image courtesy of Shutterstock. Growing Phone Scams: 5 Tips To Avoid
The National Conference on Saturday asked the Centre to not make it a point of prestige to summon moderate Hurriyat Conference chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to New Delhi.Party general secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar said that the separatist leader should be questioned in the Valley. “The government should not make it a point of prestige to summon him (Mirwaiz) to New Delhi. He has already affirmed in his response that he is willing to cooperate,” Mr. Sagar said while addressing a gathering in Srinagar. “Keeping in view the socio-religious disposition, he should be questioned here in Srinagar only,” he added. The National Investigation Agency had on Thursday issued fresh summons to Mirwaiz to appear for questioning at the agency’s headquarters in New Delhi on March 18 in connection with a terror financing case.Mr. Sagar said the position of Mirwaiz is of immense socio-religious importance and the “injudicious approach of humiliation and intimidation will hurt the sentiments of his followers”. “The post of Mirwaiz is highly venerated by the people of Kashmir. Notwithstanding his politics, his family has played a pivotal role in the socio-political emancipation of the people of Kashmir,” Mr. Sagar said. “He is a scholarly person, holding a Ph D degree and is well respected in the socio-religious circles of the State,” he added.
NEW YORK — Nelson Cruz has been hitting homers all season. J.J. Hardy finally got in on the fun Saturday, against a likely opponent.Cruz hit his 23rd home run, Hardy connected for his first of the year and the Baltimore Orioles beat the New York Yankees 6-1 after starter Bud Norris left with tightness in his right groin.Adam Jones and Steve Pearce also went deep off struggling soft-tosser Vidal Nuno, helping the Orioles rebound after blowing a two-run lead in the ninth inning of a 5-3 loss Friday night.“Big win for us,” Hardy said. Cruz and Pearce each had a two-run shot. Hardy ended a drought of 339 at-bats that dated to last September. “It definitely felt nice,” he said. “I felt like I forgot how to do it.”“I think it probably is a little bit of a relief. I started to question myself if I ever was going to hit one again,” Hardy added.Mark Teixeira hit his 12th home run for the Yankees, who had won four straight and eight of 10, but that was all they managed against Norris and three relievers.During a pregame ceremony on the field, former New York first baseman Tino Martinez was honored with a plaque to be placed in Monument Park.Making his first start against the Yankees, Norris (7-5) allowed three hits in five innings and matched a career high by winning his fourth straight start. He warmed up on the mound for the sixth but was pulled for Ryan Webb, who pitched two scoreless innings.Tommy Hunter got the final five outs. Norris said he felt something “kind of funny” while throwing a fastball in the fifth.“It kind of grabbed on me,” he said. “I’ve had groin stuff before, especially my left one but not necessarily my right one. You’ve got to be real careful with those.”“I could see it getting a little worse and I wanted to be smart, but really, hats off to the offense for scoring and to the bullpen for picking me up,” Norris added. “Pretty sore right now.”Orioles Manager Buck Showalter said Norris probably will pitch the night game of a split doubleheader June 20 against Tampa Bay, but the right-hander said it was too soon to tell. “We’ve got other options, but I’m hoping we caught it in time,” Showalter said.Pressed into the rotation because of injuries to CC Sabathia, Ivan Nova and Michael Pineda, Nuno (1-4) is having a hard time with the homer-friendly dimensions atYankee Stadium. He was rocked in his previous outing in Oakland and is 0-4 since beating the Los Angeles Angels on May 7.“This is what we have. And as I said, it’s not like there’s just starting pitchers lying around out there,” New York Manager Joe Girardi said, explaining that Nuno will stay in the rotation. “Right now, this is what it is.”The left-hander yielded five runs — four earned — and six hits in 6 1-3 innings. He allowed three home runs and has served up 13 in 39 1-3 innings this season at home, where he is 0-3 with a 7.09 ERA.“My fastball today, I just left it up too much,” Nuno said. “I trusted all my stuff today. No regrets and everything, but they just got to my fastball.”Jones hit a solo shot with two outs in the first and drew a leadoff walk in the fourth before Cruz connected. Cruz began the day one home run behind Toronto slugger Edwin Encarnacion for the major league lead.“He’s carried us along a lot of the season,” Hardy said.Pearce’s drive made it 5-1 in the fifth, and Hardy went deep off Jose Ramirez in the eighth for his 159th career homer and first since Sept. 5, 2013, against Jose Quintana of the Chicago White Sox. “We like hitting home runs,” Jones said.Back in the dugout, Hardy got the silent treatment. He threw sunflower seeds on himself and was doused with water by Cruz.The two-time All-Star shortstop has hit at least 22 home runs five times, including a career-high 30 with Baltimore in 2011.“Normally I just put my head down and run. This time I kind of watched a little bit to make sure that it got up,” Hardy said. “As I was rounding third, I looked into the dugout and no one had moved. So I kind of knew that they were going to sit there.”(MIKE FITZPATRICK, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shares
The traffic division of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) has received a boost with the addition of four motorcycles to its fleet.Valued at some US$30,000, the 650cc Yamaha motorcycles, donated by the Jamaica National General Insurance Company (JNGI), were handed over on Thursday, May 9, at the Commissioner’s Office on Old Hope Road in Kingston.Minister of National Security, Hon. Peter Bunting, said the bikes will assist the Traffic Division in executing its traffic management strategy.In a message read by Head of Corporate Services in the Ministry, Angela Buchanan, Mr. Bunting said any assistance which can be given to the team at the Police Traffic Division, will no doubt improve the ability of members to maintain order on the nation’s roads.“In all instances where I can heap commendation on the work of the police, I will do so and the reduction in road fatalities to 258 in 2012 (from 308 in 2011) is remarkable, in that it is the lowest number recorded since the Road Safety Council has been tracking the statistics,” he said.The Minister expressed gratitude to JNGI and the private sector in general, for the overall show of support that they have been giving in relation to helping the JCF to build its capacity in different ways.“In recent months several of our private sector partners have made considerable donations to the JCF in terms of equipment, vehicles, training opportunities and more. The Ministry of National Security and the Government of Jamaica are very appreciative of this continued show of support to the work of the JCF,” he said.Meanwhile, Head of the Police Traffic Division, Senior Superintendent Radcliffe Lewis, expressed gratitude for the bikes, and informed that two of the motorcycles will be placed in Kingston, while the others will be sent to Falmouth and Highway 2000 patrol.“These bikes come at a very good time when we are on a drive to control fatalities and to assist us in our traffic management,” he said.For his part, General Manager of JNGI, Chris Hind, said the donation is a continuation of the Jamaica National Building Society Group of Companies contribution in the area of safer roads.“At JNGI, we are committed to support the thrust to cut Jamaica’s road fatalities in half by 2020. And, we have sought to forge partnerships with the government and other stakeholders to build institutional capacity and generate individual support for the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety,” he noted.Mr. Hind informed that one year ago, the JNGI signed an agreement with the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing to erect crash ‘hot-spot’ signs at strategic locations across the island.“The JNGI has erected signs at the worst of these crash hot spots and through a series of advertorials, news stories and social media posts, we have increased awareness among drivers where accidents are most likely to occur, so that they can negotiate those areas with greater caution,” he said, adding that the donation is another step in the programme.Mr. Hind commended the police for the role they have been playing in reducing the number of crashes on the roads.Contact: Chris Patterson
