Yet another ocean carrier has fallen foul to a cyber-attack: this time it is South Korea’s HMM, which today confirmed a virus attack on its email system on 12 June.“An unidentified security breach was detected, which led to limited access to the email Outlook system in certain areas,” said HMM.It said that by yesterday, “most of the confirmed damage” had been restored and that no data leakage had been found.However, it said that as of today, the email servers in all areas except the America and Europe “remain impacted”.The carrier recommended shippers in the regions still affected contact their local HMM agency offices via telephone for bookings and other enquiries.“Except for email, systems and functions are fully operational, attributed to the independent cloud-based system,” confirmed HMM. “The email system is gradually resuming and our IT planning team is continuing the investigation to prevent further security accidents.”The carrier added that it would “conduct enhanced security checks and take protective measures”.A contact at HMM Europe confirmed to The Loadstar this morning that its core systems were “totally unaffected”, and that apart from “some patchy email server issues”, the attack had had “no impact on taking bookings”.“Our emails are essentially all restored and working for our part in Europe. Not nice, but our cyber-resilience seems good so far,” he said. By Mike Wackett 15/06/2021

Killeshin have informed Laois GAA that they have decided to withdraw from the Kelly Cup.The decision means that they have fore-fitted their semi final with Ballylinan and now they will face Graiguecullen in the decider on Saturday.The final will now go ahead on Saturday evening in Crettyard at 7.15pm.Killeshin were due to meet Ballylinan in the semi final last weekend but the club is now in the middle of a 10-day suspension of activities.That comes after Killeshin’s junior team played Old Leighlin from Carlow in a practice game on Monday July 13 with one of the Old Leighlin players subsequently testing positive for Covid-19.The news of the positive test emerged late last week and Killeshin took the decision to pause all activities as a precaution.In a statement last week, Killeshin said: “Killeshin GAA would like to let our members know as a precautionary measure we have decided to press pause on all club activities until Monday July 27th.“This is a precautionary measure, as one of our teams has been in contact with a person who subsequently tested positive for COVID-19 Killeshin withdraw from Kelly Cup following contact with positive Coronavirus case WhatsApp Pinterest Home Sport GAA Killeshin withdraw from Kelly Cup following contact with positive Coronavirus case SportGAAGaelic Football “We in Killeshin GAA feel it sensible and prudent to temporarily close our grounds and suspend both underage and adult group activities.“We understand that anyone identified by Public Health authorities as a close contact will be tested for COVID-19“We will keep you posted on resumption of activities, and we remind you to respect the privacy of all involved. Thank you.”Their return to activity will come just a couple of days before their senior side are due to play Emo in the opening round of the championship while they also have teams in the Junior ‘A’ and Junior ‘C’ championships.Killeshin played in their first ever senior final last year when they only lost to Portlaoise by a point.They will be without Laois captain of the past three years Stephen Attride for this year’s campaign as he is in Australia while Maurice Brown, who is now a selector with Laois, has been replaced as manager by former Kildare player Karl O’Dwyer.SEE ALSO – One confirmed case and one suspected case of Coronavirus in Portlaoise Hospital WhatsApp Previous articleLaois woman handed suspended prison sentence for gas meter tamperingNext articleCoronavirus: One new death and 17 new cases as 1,300 people refuse Covid-19 test Alan HartnettStradbally native Alan Hartnett is a graduate of Knockbeg College who has worked in the local and national media since 2008.

I did my left cruciate in 2016 and then I did my right one in 2018.“So I was only back playing about 10 or 11 months when the right one gave in. O’Moore’s won the county finals in 2016 and 2018 so I missed both of them. So personally for me, I was just delighted to eventually get there after missing out on the two wins.“I was delighted and it was great to be on the field with the girls as part of the winning team, it’s not the same when you are on the sideline watching on. So it was just great.”When Maher did her cruciate for the second time, she had just been named captain of the Laois Ladies footballers.That was 2018 and Laois would go on to win the Leinster intermediate championship – another title Maher missed out on.Looking back now, Maher says coming back from the second knee injury was tougher because she knew what was ahead of her.She said: “The first time was a case of ignorance in bliss, I didn’t know what I was facing into and everything was new and was a novelty and the rehab was straight forward – like it went to plan.“The second time round was a real sucker punch. I knew exactly what I was facing into and that time around I did more damage with the injury and the rehab took longer and was more complicated – you start to wonder would you get back playing.The second time around there were definitely four months I was just in pain the whole time and made no progress in the gym or anything.“Whatever could go wrong, went wrong, so you were questioning it then. But I was blessed with a stubborn streak so I stuck it out.”The Laois Ladies are due to resume their campaign next month but Laura Marie is not looking that far ahead – she is firmly focused on the challenge on trying to win eight titles in a row with Sarsfields against Portlaoise on Saturday.She said: “I’ve no status at the moment (as regards inter county).“This year pre-Covid, my aim was to play club camogie and club football without getting injured. So far so good so we will see what happens.“When we played Portlaoise in the group stages they were very organised, the were deserved winners on the day.“(So this) will be an interesting game. They have won under 16 and minors so they have lots coming through which is great to see.”Sarsfields face Portlaoise in the final on Saturday in MW Hire O’Moore Park at 12.30pm.You can listen to that Talking Sport episode on on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or Podbean or below on Soundcloud.The LaoisToday Podcast · Talking Sport: Camogie joy for O’Moore’s and cup success for Towerhill RoversSEE ALSO – From devastation to elation – how repeating the Leaving Cert changed a Laois teenager’s life By Jamie Dowling – 23rd September 2020 Electric Picnic organisers release statement following confirmation of new festival date News Bizarre situation as Ben Brennan breaks up Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael arrangement to take Graiguecullen-Portarlington vice-chair role TAGSLaois Ladies SFCLaura-Marie MaherSarsfields WhatsApp Electric Picnic Laois Councillor ‘amazed’ at Electric Picnic decision to apply for later date for 2021 festival

Contributions reform could unlock billions Sweeping changes to the infrastructure contributions system could unlock up to $12 billion of productivity benefits over the next 20 years, according to a new report from the NSW Productivity Commission to be considered by the NSW Government.Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Rob Stokes and Treasurer Dominic Perrottet welcomed the report, which lays out a roadmap for the biggest shake-up to the contributions regime in three decades.Mr Stokes commissioned the review into the system to fix uncertainty of developer contributions, unlock new housing supply, deliver infrastructure and drive investment.“The development industry has been telling us for years that uncertainty surrounding infrastructure contributions was driving up house prices and slowing down progress,” Mr Stokes said.“Those who complain about growth in Sydney often have the same gripe – too much housing, not enough infrastructure. This report recommends a complete shift in thinking, where land rezoning, infrastructure planning and funding is considered together at the start of the process.“If the changes in this new report are implemented, these barriers will be removed and development will be coordinated with the right infrastructure.”Productivity Commissioner Peter Achterstraat’s comprehensive review of the system makes 29 recommendations, including:Changing the funding mix for more efficient infrastructure delivery;Linking council rates more closely with population growth;Developing a digital tool for calculating infrastructure contributions;Ensuring infrastructure contributions plans are in place upfront during the rezoning process;Supporting better open space provision through a system for the direct land dedication following re-zoning;Reforming state contributions so funding goes where infrastructure is required. Mr Perrottet said the long-term benefits of boosting productivity was vital for NSW and the state’s recovery from the economic impacts of COVID-19.“We need to strike the right balance between investing and growing the economy and ensuring we build the infrastructure our communities need,” Mr Perrottet said.“This review outlines why we need a contributions system where it is clear about who pays for what and what the economic costs and benefits are.“This is ultimately about providing greater certainty for all parties, ensuring better infrastructure for the community and unlocking more than $12 billion for our economy.”The Treasurer said $14.8 million was allocated in the recent 2020-21 NSW Budget for the development of a contributions calculator, which would make it easier to determine project development costs at the start of the process.The Government will now review the report’s recommendations and consult with industry to develop a formal Government response and roadmap for implementation by early 2021. /Public Release.

New construction milestone for Snowy 2.0 The landmark Snowy 2.0 project has passed a key construction milestone with commissioning underway for the first giant tunnel boring machine (TBM).The milestone was celebrated with the official naming by Snowy Hydro Ltd: The ‘Lady Eileen Hudson’ TBM.Named after an important Snowy Scheme ambassador and the wife of inaugural Scheme Commissioner Sir William Hudson, the Lady Eileen Hudson TBM will excavate the 2.6km main access tunnel for the Snowy 2.0 project and provide access to the site of the underground power station cavern.The TBM is the first of three that will eventually be working on the project, which will significantly expand pumped-hydro electricity generation from the iconic Snowy Mountains Scheme.The Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction Angus Taylor attended the commissioning at Lobs Hole in the Snowy Mountains.“The commissioning of the first TBM marks a major achievement for Snowy 2.0. This machine will dig out about 16 metres of rock each day, and will eventually provide critical access to the site of the power station, 800 metres underground,” Minister Taylor said.“The project has seen significant ramping up of activity over the last year, and it’s already creating a jobs boom, with a current workforce of 1,000 people and an expected 4,000 direct jobs over the life of the project.“This is also creating an economic ripple effect in the region, with more than 150 Snowy Mountains businesses to date delivering local content for this historic project, with flow-on indirect jobs and benefits across the region.“Snowy 2.0 is a key part of the Government’s agenda to deliver affordable, reliable power and ensure Australians get a fair deal on energy.“Snowy 2.0 will store the excess energy from Australia’s world-leading levels of household solar and use that energy when the sun goes down, to keep the lights on and prices low.”When completed, Snowy 2.0 will increase the Snowy Hydro Scheme’s capacity by 2,000 megawatts and provide 350,000 megawatt hours of large-scale storage, enough to power the equivalent of 500,000 homes for over a week during peak demand.It will reduce volatility in the market, support reliability and bring down power prices for Australian families and businesses.The Australian Government has committed up to $1.38 billion in equity for Snowy 2.0, with Snowy Hydro funding the remainder of the project.Snowy 2.0 is expected to be progressively commissioned from 2025. /Public Release.

The students most likely to benefit from a switch to the new A&S gen ed requirements are students who are freshmen this year and have not yet completed much of the core.Students can review how classes they have taken or those that are in-progress will count toward the new gen ed requirements by choosing the “select a different program” option in the degree audit in mycuinfo.colorado.edu (click on “Track Academic Progress”)Switch LabsStudents who want help determining whether the core or gen ed curriculum will be best for them can drop by a general education Switch Lab. Students who choose to switch will be able to make the request before they leave the lab.

FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Minister of Health, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, has said the Government will be pushing for free health care for children at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI). “I think a no user fee policy for children and adolescents at the University Hospital of the West Indies was analysed by leading scholars in this area to be a necessary and affordable policy. Even more so, is the fact that it affects the most vulnerable and dependent age cohort in our population,” he stated. He was addressing Friday’s opening of the 10th Annual Caribbean Neurosciences Symposium and Workshop at the Montego Bay Conference Centre in St. James. Dr. Ferguson informed that Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson-Miller, has consistently expressed the need for the no user fee policy to be fully implemented at the UHWI. He said he will be urging the new Board of Management of the hospital, to be put in place shortly, to consider offering free health services for children and adolescents. Meanwhile, he informed that work is to get underway soon, on the construction of a cardiac unit at the Bustamante Hospital for Children in Kingston. He said there is need for a similar hospital in western Jamaica that will meet the specific needs of the youngest members of the population.
