Mary Street Station in Limerick City was also closed as part of the cost saving restructuring process.Minister Fitzgerald said that Government is rebuilding the force and providing the Commissioner with the resources she needs to allow her to deploy increasing numbers of Community Gardaí across every Garda Division, including Limerick, in the coming years.She added that the force would continue to receive substantial investment in resources across the board under the Government’s Capital Plan 2016 – 2021.€205 million in additional funding for communications technology and €46 million for new Garda vehicles has been allocated over the lifetime of the plan.

6 ways to protect your institution from coronavirus-related cybersecurity threats

first_img continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr During events such as the COVID-19, or Coronavirus, pandemic, there is often an increase of criminal activity online. Preying on fear and panic, cyber criminals are now sending various scams related to COVID-19 and taking advantage of increasing vulnerabilities resulting from unusual working situations. It is critical that you and your institution’s employees exercise caution during this time.Coronavirus Cybersecurity ThreatsFraudsters are using a variety of tactics in efforts to scam businesses and individuals, and your institution must maintain a heightened sense of awareness. Malicious websites are being registered by fraudsters at breakneck speed, many including the word “corona,” and these are used to distribute malware to the devices of unsuspecting visitors. Scammers are using spam emails containing conspiracy language or offering the opportunity to purchase high-demand goods, including masks, cleaning supplies, etc.Additionally, cyber criminals are sending phishing emails that appear to come from familiar organizations but contain malicious phishing links or dangerous attachments. Be especially wary of emails claiming to have “new” or “updated” lists of COVID-19 cases in your area, as these emails can contain dangerous links. The attachments to these emails often include malware that, when installed, allow the attacker to install additional malware on the compromised machine, including ransomware, keyloggers and credential stealing malware.last_img read more

Shinkansen decisions postponed

first_imgBattle has raged since Japan’s general election last October over funding the next round of shinkansen construction, now that the mini-shinkansen from Morioka to Akita is about to open (p72), and work on the Hokuriku line as far as Nagano enters the final year of fitting out and commissioning. Members of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party were lavish with promises during the election campaign, and have been pushing the finance and transport ministries hard to deliver high speed travel to their constituencies.The LDP’s Big Idea was that the three profitable companies on Honshu (JR East, JR Central and JR West) would be relieved of an obligation to pay 100% property taxes to local government from April 1, having enjoyed since they were created in April 1987 a transitional concession requiring only 50% to be paid. The saving, some ´60bn a year, would be paid instead towards shinkansen construction, and provided national and local government together contributed the same amount, this would allow the whole programme to be finished in 20 years.Astute readers will note that it is local government which loses out, but the three JR companies strongly opposed the idea as interference by government in their affairs and a potential threat to shareholders’ profits. At a press conference on December 17, the normally diplomatic JR presidents condemned it as ’a stupid demand totally against JR’s sound management and the principles of company accounting.’When the draft budget for the year commencing April 1 1997 appeared on December 25, shinkansen construction was projected at ´173bn of which only ´10bn is for new projects. Token work continues on the Tohoku line towards Aomori, the Kyushu line to Kagoshima, and the Hokuriku line beyond Nagano (RG 4.92 p254). The government has set up a committee charged with reporting in August on which sections should be pushed ahead, and to what technical standards – by which time it hopes pre-election promises will have been forgotten. olast_img read more

Craig Ervine and Sikandar Raza help Zimbabwe to ODI victory over Ireland

first_imgCraig Ervine and Sikandar Raza each notched half-centuries as Zimbabwe emerged from a tight first one-day international against Ireland in Harare with victory by two wickets with only six balls remaining. Ireland’s innings started in unconvincing fashion as they slipped to 54 for three, but a fourth-wicket partnership of 83 between Wilson and Joyce saw them gain some momentum. Things fizzled out somewhat thereafter, though, with John Nyumbu (two for 35) and Masakadza (two for 45) impressing to leave Zimbabwe with a thoroughly achievable-looking target. The hosts subsequently made tough work of getting there as George Dockrell (two for 29) and Andy McBrine (two for 53) restricted their progress. But they made it in the end, thanks chiefly to the efforts of Ervine and Raza as Ireland were left to reflect on three dropped catches. Previous meetings between the two sides have tended to be closely-fought affairs and Ireland will be hoping to draw this three-match series level when they play each other again on Sunday. After the tourists were put in to bat on Friday, debutant left-arm spinner Wellington Masakadza helped restrict them to a tally of 219 for eight – to which Gary Wilson contributed 70 not out and Ed Joyce 53 – by taking the last couple of wickets. Zimbabwe then just squeezed home, Tinashe Panyangara (eight not out) striking a four in the 49th over to take them past their victory target. Raza also ended unbeaten at the crease on 60, the score Ervine had earlier posted before being ousted. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
