ENVIRONMENT MINISTER PHIL Hogan has outlined what he claims is the most radical reform of local government in over a century.Publishing the Local Government Bill today, the Minister said the system of local authorities is being “changed to one that is relevant for modern Ireland”.“With this bill we intend to build a better, stronger, more efficient, more responsive and more accountable system of local government,” Hogan said today.Under the main measures of the bill, which were previously announced, a total of 80 town councils will be abolished with the overall number of councils operating in Ireland going from 114 to 31.Around 137 municipal districts will be introduced for the same number of local electoral areas with elected councillors “working directly for the interests of their communities” according to Hogan.Four city and county councils in Limerick and Waterford and councils in North and South Tipperary will merge. The number of councillors in the country will drop from 1,627 to 949 but Dublin is one area where the numbers will go up by 53.The changes will allow for savings between €40 and 45 million, Hogan said, in addition to over €500 million which he claimed has been saved through local government efficiencies in recent years.The bill allows for the creation of the post of chief executive to replace a county or city manager. This person, who will have a seven year term with the option of an extra three years, will be accountable to elected councillors and will require the approval of councillors before taking up the post.There will be a devolving powers to local authorities including discretion to vary the local property tax by January 2015 by plus or minus 15 per cent.Over 20 additional reserve functions are being assigned to the new councils including “a role in local economic development” according to Hogan who also said that councillors will for the first time have a clear outline of what powers they have.He said: “This bill spells out for the first time in detail all of the functions that are reserved by law to the elected members.”A National Oversight and Audit Commission will monitor and assess local authority performance.The bill also contains a provision to hold a referendum for an elected mayor which is currently the subject of a consultation process by the four local authorities in Dublin.It is anticipated that the bill will be passed by the Oireachtas before the end of the year with the changes coming into effect after next May’s local elections.Hogan: No point having elected mayor for Dublin unless position is meaningful Read: Dublin’s 53 extra councillors will cost €1.5 million every year
THE MAYOR OF South Dublin County Council has resigned from the Labour party, becoming the 27th councillor to leave the junior coalition partner in three years.Dermot Looney, a 31-year-old teacher who represents the Tallaght Central area of Dublin, had already been selected to run again for the party in May’s local elections.He said the decision to leave the party he had been involved in for more than a decade had been difficult but he believed it was the right thing to do.“My time in the Labour party came to a natural end. I’d no distance left to run,” he told TheJournal.ie this evening.“I made the decision about a month ago but the reason I didn’t go then is that there was a budget [for South Dublin County Council] to get through, where I managed to make some gains for people in the area, and it was the right thing to do to stay until that was done”.Looney was strongly criticial of Labour, saying the party had abandoned its principles while in government with Fine Gael.Looney said there was no one policy on which he was making a stand, but that there had been dozens over the lifetime of the Government with which he fundamentally disagreed. He said Labour had ‘kowtowed’ to Fine Gael’s economic agenda to the detriment of the poorest people in society.“I stand diametrically opposed to government policy – and by extension, that of the Labour Party – in areas as diverse as healthcare, local democracy, housing, state assets and taxation,” he said.He also criticised the running of the party. “The party is run very strongly from the centre, and councillors like me are having less and less of an impact,” he said. He cited the recent party conference as an example, where, he said, around 20 motions from members weren’t allowed to be brought to the conference floor.Looney said the reaction so far to his resignation had been “overwhelmingly positive”. He told the Labour councillors on South Dublin County Council and local party members of his decision before it was made public tonight.Looney will remain on as mayor and councillor ahead of May’s elections.He ruled out running for any other party and said he would be standing as an Independent in the local elections.“I’m definitely not running for another party,” he said. “I’ll see what I can do both nationally and locally as an independent, possibly working with other groups from the left”.Looney had been a member of the party for more than a decade after joining while studying social science in UCD. He was first elected to South Dublin County Council in June 2009 and became the youngest ever mayor of the local authority when he took over the office last year.Looney made the news last year when he donated €7,000 of his €45,000 allowance as mayor to local community groups.Read: ‘A nice bonus at Christmas time’: Dublin mayor’s pay-cut benefits 50 community groups > Read: The 26 councillors who have left the Labour Party over its role in government >
While it hasn’t quite grown to antennagate proportions, there has been plenty of talk about battery issues on the iPhone 4S and/or iOS 5. It appears that Apple has made some progress on that front, as they have today issued a statement acknowledging the battery bug, and are promising an update within the next few weeks.In the statement, Apple stated that “a small number of customers have reported lower than expected battery life on iOS 5 devices.” They noted that a software would would be landing some time in the next “few weeks.”The company didn’t comment beyond that, but it may be worth noting that they attributed the issue to “iOS 5 devices,” and not the iPhone 4S specifically. This is consistent with testing that PC Mag did, as well as our hands-on time with Apple’s latest.One of the most discussed potential fixes for the issue relates to an out-of-control time zone setting in the firmware. The theory is that a bug with the phone’s time settings is causing it to constantly search for its location, which leads to a hit on uptime. Some users with battery problems have found that their battery life improved after turning off the automatic time zone setting (see here for details).An early version of the iOS update has already been released to developers, in the form of iOS 5.0.1 beta. In addition to handling the battery life bugs, the beta also promises fixes for Documents in the Cloud bugs, adds multitasking gestures to the iPad 1, and improves Siri’s speech recognition for those with Australian accents.Will this be the fix that those struggling with poor battery life have been waiting for? That remains to be seen, but you can bet that Apple doesn’t want this story to blow up any more than it already has. An Apple support forum devoted to the issue has over 186 pages of complaints, and the issue has been discussed at length on blogs and social networks during the last week.Even if it is only affecting “a small number of customers,” as Apple says, this certainly isn’t the kind of press that a company that prides themselves on their user-friendliness wants.via AllThingsD
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos is not coming to Australia this year. This was confirmed by the Greek Embassy in Canberra, which stated that President Pavlopoulos’ heavy schedule would not allow for a visit to occur in September.The President of the Hellenic Republic informed the Australian Embassy in Athens that Mr Pavlopoulos would wish to make a trip to the Antipodes, sometime within 2019, although it is unclear how this would be possible, given that 2019 is an election year for both Australia and Greece (which is facing a double election process, along with the one for the European Parliament).News for an impending visit by the Greek President had caused an uproar within the Greek Australian community, with the Pan Macedonian Association of Melbourne and Victoria (PMAMV) drafting a letter of complaint, stating that Mr Pavlopoulos is ‘persona non gratta’: “Mr Pavlopoulos you are unwanted; if you visit Melbourne, we the Greek diaspora officials will not welcome you,” was the message sent by the PMAMV, after the Greece-FYROM agreement on the latter’s constitutional name.
Hyundai Launches First Car With a Solar RoofFor $170,000 You Can Buy Your Very Own Solar Car Stay on target Environmentally friendly Germans can now determine the solar potential of their rooftops.Nearly two years after launching Project Sunroof in the US, Google is expanding its program to Europe—starting in the Land der Dichter und Denker.Using high-resolution aerial mapping, Google can help consumers “make accurate decisions about solar power for their homes,” Project Sunroof product manager Joel Conkling wrote in a blog announcement.Some 7 million buildings are covered, including those in urban areas like Munich, Berlin, Rhine-Main, and Ruhr, where homeowners can calculate their estimated rooftop solar potential by simply entering their address online.The smart technology—an amalgamation of Google Earth, Google Maps, 3D models, and machine learning—factors in roof orientation, nearby tree and building shade, and local weather patterns. It also considers typical electric bill rates for customized results.My parents’ house in Mount Pleasant, S.C., for example, collects 1,615 hours of usable sunlight per year (based on daily weather patterns). Combined with the 1,251 square feet available for solar panels (based on 3D modeling and nearby tree coverage), they could save $15,000 over 20 years.To refine the results, tap “fine-tune estimate.” If you’re already convinced, click through to see solar providers in your area. German users can purchase a suitable system of photovoltaic modules, energy storage, and system management software directly from Project Sunroof partner E.ON.“With Sunroof, we are able to digitize sales of solar systems more intensively and thereby increase the appeal of photovoltaics,” E.ON COO Karsten Wildberger said in a statement. “It clearly demonstrates the potential benefits of digitalization for the ongoing shift in energy production.”Initially tested in the San Francisco Bay Area, Fresno, and Boston, the program, which utilizes the same technology in use by Google Earth, has expanded nationwide, and currently covers about 40 percent of German homes.There is no word on a timeline for future growth within the the country or the rest of the globe.“Google has been using renewable energy sources within our own infrastructure and beyond for many years,” Conkling wrote, highlighting the company’s commitment for 100 percent renewable energy across worldwide operations in 2017.“With Project Sunroof, we want to help people become even more aware of the solar potential that’s just above the rafters,” he continued. “The future is bright.”

Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals 6 min read Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Register Now » Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Entrepreneur:This technology is also being tested at the enterprise level, for sales and customer service call centers. How does that work?Mings: In contact centers everyone is recording everything but they can only listen to about 1%, and the way they target that 1% is very arbitrary. What we do is record everything, transcribe everything in real time, score it and help people determine what they should listen to. Executives can build a word bank and choose from words or phrases to alert them based upon what metric they’re trying to solve for, whether compliance or top-line growth.If I’m a chief executive or marketing officer, for example, I now have insights into what is the actual voice of my customer. Looking at that data with other data, like sales data. Now for the first time executives can say now I know why this campaign was effective versus others or why this customer service agent was more effective.Entrepreneur: We’re used to recording and sharing words and pictures, but cataloguing conversations takes things to another level. Why is this important?Mings: I see a world without communications boundaries, giving the hearing impaired new tools to collaborate, bridging the communication gaps between cultures and languages, and providing business leaders a means to truly respond to customers. To do this, we want to enhance behaviors that already exist. People are used to typing. They’re used to multi-tasking. They’re used to sharing. We’re all about connecting people, data, systems and the tools people already love and bringing them all together. You can take what’s said and turn it into powerful insights – and share it. Mike Mings, chief executive officer and co-founder of Tethr’s parent company, CollabIP, has sat in on more than his share of conference calls. He started his career as an entrepreneur – focusing on hosted services and digital games – and, after a couple acquisitions, ended up as director at Best Buy overseeing digital distribution for entertainment and productivity software.Along the way, Mings saw how technology was improving communication and collaboration. Yet, there was still no good solution for capturing the spoken word in a way that it could be easily searched, shared and revisited. More often than not, important messages would be lost forever to bad note taking or worse listening skills, leading to confusion and misunderstandings.In 2012, Mings and some of his former colleagues at Best Buy started their own company, CollabIP. Last spring they launched their first product, Tethr, at SXSW in Austin, where the company is now headquartered.Entrepreneur chatted with Mings, 37, using Tethr’s platform. (Editor’s note: The transcription wasn’t always perfect, but it made it easy to go back and pinpoint important parts of the conversation.)Entrepreneur: What’s wrong with the conference call as most people know it?Mings: First of all, it’s just a hassle to set up. To get into a conference call you have to enter all these codes. It stinks if you’re driving. Do you have to hit the pound sign? I don’t know.The second thing is you can’t really recall everything because you’re frantically writing notes. ‘He said something about a something, and I have to remember to do something.’ When the call is over, there’s no easy way to recall or share what happened with your team.Entrepreneur: Most conference calls have the record option, but it requires listing to the entire call or paying a human to transcribe it. What’s different about Tethr?Mings: Because we’re transcribing conference calls in real time you can drop bookmarks any point in time and share the bookmark, or the entire meeting, with other people. You can send your bookmarks or export parts of your meeting to, say, Salesforce.com. When you do that, you’re allowing the individual to search and play back the important parts of a call.Entrepreneur: In other words, the transcription is linked directly to the audio. It resembles a chat history, but with playback of the conversation.Mings: Exactly. You can speak into the platform through the phone or through a browser, and that goes into the cloud. The machine listens and transcribes. It learns who the individual speakers are, their individual dialect and how they speak.The transcription is a valuable tool to search and playback all parts of the meeting. I can search for a point in the conversation or by speaker, key word or phrase. Prior to our technology you had to write notes furiously, maybe time stamp them using your watch and then go back and find it.Related: The Apps That Help This Yoga Instructor Run Her Business from Half a World AwayEntrepreneur: How does this change the dynamics of the call itself? Many of the features make it easy to multi-task during the call – and maybe not pay attention. Is that a bad thing or just the nature of conference calls?Mings: Not everybody who is on a call needs to be on the call for the whole thing. A lot of people are driving during a conference call, on another call or with their kids at a soccer game. With Tethr, you can be alerted to the important parts of the call or go back and listen to it at specific bookmarksEntrepreneur: People can also participate in the call by text. What inspired that?Mings: There are ways to get in directly without calling in, like through a text message. We found that customers are often in back-to-back meetings. They can text message their conference bridge and send comments directly into a meeting. If I’m in the meeting but not joined by audio, you can direct something to me and send it in a text, and I can reply back.Entrepreneur: So, you can be on two conference calls at the same time?Mings: Yes, you can, though I wouldn’t recommend it. One of our customers says he listens in on one meeting and gets alerted to what’s happening in another meeting. You can also follow along with the transcription, which happens very quickly, with just a one- or two-second delay.Related: Keeping Staffers Without Email (Half the Workforce) In the Loop.

Several weaknesses including a lack of a national strategy in the management system of marine protected areas were identified in a report published by the audit office on Monday.According to the report, the European Commission estimates that 65 per cent of marine species and habitats in Cyprus should be designated EU Natura 2000 sites and more research is required for a further 13 per cent in order to identify if and how they should be included.“There is not a single national strategy for the management of marine protected areas and the preparation of individual documents may lead to fragmentation of the efforts to protect species and areas. Moreover, there are no quantified targets and timetables in the individual strategic documents which are prepared,” the report said.According to the research, manmade activities on land and in coastal regions are a significant threat to marine protected areas in Cyprus, vulnerabilities have not been adequately evaluated and risk assessments have not been carried out by the competent bodies.Regarding the marine protected areas of ‘Nisia’in the Famagusta district and ‘Moulia’ in Paphos, the report mentions that management plans have not been finalised, while for the marine regions of Cavo Greco and Akamas a nature conservation and management order has not been issued. This means there is no legal basis for implementing measures to protect the areas.Special emphasis was placed on the protection of the Akamas peninsula area, with the report saying that the involvement of four different agents and the preparation of five different land and sea management plans, based on different legislations, undermine the coordination and implementation of projects.It said the objectives of the Akamas management plan are not measurable, making it difficult to evaluate any results.The findings show the measures included in the Cavo Greco management plan are not specific enough, their competence to implement them is not sufficiently defined and they are not evaluated economically. The five-year timetable given to the evaluation has now elapsed without the planned assessment being carried out.The report recommends promoting the identification of the areas of Cape Greco and Akamas as special areas of conservation and issuing nature management and nature conservation regulations for all marine protected areas, the improvement of the management plans prepared for the Akamas and Cape Greco areas, setting targets, defining responsibilities and timetables and assessing the financial costs of implementing the proposed measures.The audit was conducted as part of a coordinated study with the higher auditing institutions of six other European countries, including five Mediterranean ones. Their aim was to record and evaluate the actions of the governmental bodies for the protection of marine biodiversity through the definition and proper management of marine protected areas.You May LikeCar InsuranceAuto Insurance QuotesCar InsuranceUndoWoJournals17 hairstyles which make you look much youngerWoJournalsUndoFood Prevent3 Best Ingredients to Clear Clogged ArteriesFood PreventUndo Greece to overturn law that made universities no-go zone for policeUndoMorphou bishop now claims gay men have a ‘nasty smell’UndoLED-lighting the way by 2020Undoby Taboolaby Taboola
