We have a dog in active training in the society and our on-campus walks with the retired greyhounds are important. It’s great to see that work being highlighted,” he explained.The society receives funding from the Irish Greyhound Board to train their dog, Trap Queen, who has had three wins at the Limerick Greyhound Track.It also organises regular walks with retired greyhounds across the UL campus to highlight the importance of a ‘whole of life’ approach to the racing greyhound.The Irish Retired Greyhound Trust (IRGT) was first established by the Irish Greyhound Board (IGB) in 1997.It is jointly funded together with greyhound owners, through a two per cent deduction from prize money, which is then matched by the IGB.Since 2008, the IRGT has helped to re-home more than 5,300 greyhounds with 850 re-homed since the beginning of the year.A further 58 greyhounds will be re-homed as pets in Ireland, the UK, Sweden, Italy, the Czech Republic and Belgium, by the end of the year.The IRGT now assists up to seven Irish Private Rehoming Agencies, including EMOL Rescue in Limerick, by providing financial assistance towards either their veterinary or transportation costs.The charity also continues to source additional rehoming opportunities in Ireland, Europe and the US to increase the number of retired greyhounds that are re-homed.by Gary [email protected] Gardai make arrests following chaotic student party near University of Limerick TAGSCommunityeducationNewsstudentUniversity of Limerick Linkedin Advertisement WhatsApp University of Limerick ceases funding for off-campus Garda COVID-patrols after sanctioning students following massive street party Email Ann & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 44 | Immersive Software Engineeringcenter_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR University of Limerick research identifies secrets of Fantasy Premier League success Decision on FIBA European Championships in Limerick to be made in May Limerick nurse helping the fight against COVID-19, calls for round the clock garda patrols near University of Limerick following “out of control” student parties Twitter Print NewsCommunityEducationUL students learn to love retired greyhoundsBy Staff Reporter – November 14, 2018 1471 Facebooklast_img read more

Jokowi orders ministries to crunch numbers on plunging oil prices

first_imgPresident Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has ordered his ministers to calculate the impact of plunging global crude oil prices on Indonesia’s economy so as to “make use of this momentum and opportunity’.Jokowi gave the order on Wednesday, March 18, a week after several ministries announced their attitudes toward the low prices. He told Cabinet members to calculate the impact of the plunge on subsidized and unsubsidized fuel prices and how long it might last.“We have to make use of this opportunity,” he said during a live-broadcast Cabinet meeting. Global crude oil prices dropped early last week after Saudi Arabia, the world’s top oil exporter, slashed its selling prices and set plans to increase production in punishing rival oil producer, Russia. The Middle Eastern country effectively triggered a price war between oil exporting countries. Read also: ‘We have many tanks to fill’: Indonesia to make the most out of globally low oil pricesAs a result of the war, international oil price benchmark Brent reached US$26.17 per barrel as of 5:40 p.m. Thursday, the lowest since 2003, and close to a third of its peak price this year at $68 per barrel on Jan. 6.In response to plunging prices, Indonesia’s Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry announced plans to increase oil imports while the country’s Finance Ministry announced it would monitor the potential impact of the plunge on the state budget.Lower crude prices and reduced oil and gas industry activity is a risk to the state budget as the industry is expected to contribute 35.4 percent – equal to Rp 127.3 trillion ($8.85 billion) – to Indonesia’s non-tax state revenue this year.Topics :last_img read more
