Share books them with your child for at least 10 minutes each day. Ask for books as presents for your child’s birthday or Christmas. Join the local library and you’ll never be short of books,” Michelle explained.She also pointed out that what works to get children’s interest also varies according to their age.“Children in Junior Infants like books about everyday things, story books about adventures, alphabet books, counting books, non-fiction books about insects or dinosaurs or imaginative books – about fairies. While children at crèche stage like small books that fit into their hands, books with simple rhymes, flap books and books about everyday things, clothes, animals and toys.“Preschool children often like books that tell stories about children and also nursery rhyme books. When reading talk about the book. With smaller children this may be pointing out pictures while it would be pointing out words with older children,” she said.CDI are also encouraging parents and children to use, a fun website for 5-6 years olds with interactive language and number games.World Book Day resource packs are available at Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” TAGSChildhood Development Initiative (CDI)limerickWorld Book Day NewsLocal NewsLimerick children urged to read for World Book DayBy Alan Jacques – March 3, 2016 1059 Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Twitter Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live WhatsAppcenter_img Previous articleLimerick plays host to film industry eventNext articleIrish Cancer Society appeal to Limerick businesses to support Daffodil Day Alan Jacques Linkedin Advertisement Print RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Email Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live last_img read more

Police warn Austin residents of suspicious boxes after 3 package explosions

first_imgABC News(AUSTIN, Texas) —  Residents of Austin, Texas, are being asked to report any suspicious packages as police investigate three explosions that took place after people handled boxes that had been delivered to their homes.Two people have died and two others have been hospitalized with injuries from the three blasts, the first of which happened on March 2. The two other incidents were reported today.All three blasts involved “box-type deliveries,” Austin police chief Brian Manley said at a news conference today.“We don’t want to have people be overly alarmed. But it is important that people be vigilant and be aware of things that look suspicious. If you had a package at your home and you were not expecting a delivery. If the package delivered to your doorstep looks suspicious in any way. Call 911 and report it. We will respond,” Manley said.Manley would not go into the specific details about the boxes because of the ongoing investigation but said that “they’re an average-size delivery box. They’re not exceptionally large.”Police do not believe that the packages are being delivered by “any of the official mail services” including the U.S. Postal Service, FedEx, UPS or DHL, Manley said.The suspect (or suspects) is not ringing the doorbell with the delivery, Manley said, so it is unclear how long the packages were on the victims’ porches before they saw and moved them.“What we know is when the victims have seen these packages on the front porch, they have gone out and handled them in some way or another and have had the explosions occur,” Manley said.There was “significant damage” to the porch involved in the March 2 blast as well as at least one of the blasts this morning, Manley said.“These devices can explode in many ways, either by being moved or being opened so that’s why I want to reiterate the importance that if you see something that’s out of place, do not handle it, do not move it, do not touch it. Call us,” Manley said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Home Office immigration crackdown on Alternative Tuck Shop

first_imgHome Office Immigration Enforcement officers raided the Alternative Tuck Shop on Holywell St on Wednesday afternoon and arrested two staff members for illegally entering the UK.A spokesperson for the Home Office told Cherwell, “Acting on intelligence, Home Office Immigration Enforcement officers visited [the] Alternative Tuck Shop on Holywell Street in Oxford at around 1pm on Wednesday 29 May, where they carried out immigration checks on members of staff.“Two people were arrested for entering the UK illegally, a 26-year-old man from Bangladesh and a 27-year-old man from Algeria. “The Bangladeshi man was detained pending his removal from the UK, while the Algerian was granted immigration bail while the Home Office deals with his case.”He also explained the potential consequence the ATS may face because of these arrests: “The business will now have to provide proof to the Home Office that the correct right-to-work checks were carried out on the men or they will be fined up to £10,000 per worker for employing them.”UK employers are required by law to run checks on potential employees to make sure that they have the right to work in the UK. The checks consist of taking copies of original documents that prove that the person concerned is allowed to work. Employers must also ensure that work they give does not infringe on any restrictions on the type of work that their potential employees can do.If a person’s right to work is affected by time limits, employers have to renew their checks on documents every year. It is also illegal knowingly to employ an illegal worker even if the relevant checks have been carried out. After the arrests the ATS temporarily closed.Stuart O’Reilly, a student at Pembroke, who stood as the UKIP candidate for St Clement’s and Cowley Marsh in the recent county council elections, offered his more general thoughts on illegal immigration, commenting, “If [the ATS staff arrested] were working illegally then it means that they probably aren’t paying tax, they aren’t fully protected by the law and they don’t necessarily get the minimum wage.He continued, “The reason we have these laws on employment in place is for the protection of workers’ rights and to ensure that vacancies are fairly advertised. This is why there is such thing as legal and illegal immigration and eligibility to work, and I hope these laws are being enforced.”Nico Hobhouse, Co-Chair of Oxford University Liberal Democrats, commented, “Illegal immigration is, by definition, illegal. Migrants and their employers should abide by UK laws that regulate immigration.“However, we should not confuse the problem of illegal immigration with immigration in general. Most immigration benefits the economy and enriches our society and we should be careful not to react too strongly to instances such as those at the Alternative Tuck Shop.”One Lincoln second year commented, “Having travelled the long and dusty pilgramage from the Turl to Holywell St for my daily Chicken Satay Baguette (no salad), I reached the hallowed entrance to the most established Tuck Shop in Oxford, but was apologetically turned away by a member of staff who ushered a man in a security guard-style uniform inside.She added, “They said they would re-open in an hour, but unable to wait so long for my warm sandwich I instead turned to Taylor’s for a Cajun Chicken and Brie Flatbread, and so I can’t confirm how long the shop was closed for.”last_img read more

KPU officially bans crowd puller events for December regional polls

first_img“Article 88C of the [revised] KPU Regulation No. 13/2020 stipulates that political parties, party coalitions, candidate pairs, campaign teams and/or other parties are banned from holding activities stipulated in Article 57,” Ilham said Thursday.Read also: Political parties to run online campaigns for regional electionsThe revised regulation, he explained, also stipulated that regional offices of the Elections Supervision Agency (Bawaslu) would issue a written notice for parties holding the said crowd-pulling activities for campaigns. If the campaign organizers for the candidates fail to follow the warning within one hour of issuance, Bawaslu will disband the campaign activities.Previously, the KPU urged the government to ban activities involving large crowds and impose stricter health protocols for the simultaneous polls, set to take place on Dec. 9, through a regulation in-lieu of law (Perppu).After several meetings with the KPU and Bawaslu to discuss the Perppu, however, the Home Ministry said the government was dropping the plan, opting to revise the KPU regulation instead.As many as 270 regions across the archipelago will participate in this year’s elections to select their new leaders. There have been mounting calls from observers and prominent organizations for the government to postpone the poll for safety reasons amid a recent spike in coronavirus cases.Topics : The General Elections Commission (KPU) has banned crowd-pulling activities during the campaign trails in the upcoming simultaneous regional polls following concerns of heightened COVID-19 transmission in the country.The prohibition was arranged in the newly revised KPU Regulation No. 13/2020 on holding the regional elections during the COVID-19 pandemic, signed by the commission on Thursday, commissioner Ilham Saputra said.Observers and government officials had raised concerns prior to the revision that Article 57 of the regulation might bring further transmission risk as it allowed candidates and supporters to hold music concerts, art performances, harvest festivals, walk and bike events, competitions, bazaars and other crowd-pulling activities during campaigns despite the ongoing outbreak.last_img read more
