And a similar thing happened before when Pam [Lastimosa] got injured in my first year.

GRANTS OF €374,693 AWARDED TO DONEGAL BUSINESSES BY LOCAL ENETRPRISE OFFICE

first_imgGrants of €374,693 paid from the Local Enterprise Office (LEO) in 2014 are providing great support to local businesses in Donegal, according to Junior Minister Joe McHugh.Michael Tunney of the Local Enterprise Board in Donegal.The Local Enterprise Offices are supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation.The new Local Enterprise Offices (LEOs) were launched last year to deliver an improved system of local enterprise supports to start-ups and small businesses across the country.The LEOs provide a ‘first-stop-shop’ for all Government supports for small business in easily accessible locations across the country.Deputy McHugh said “The LEOs form part of the Government’s strategy to spread the recovery to all regions of the country. This comes alongside the Regional Action Plan for Jobs being launched by the Minister for Jobs, Richard Bruton.“Previously some businesses were considered too large to access supports from City and County Enterprise Boards or as they were not exporting, they did not qualify for Enterprise Ireland supports and so fell between two stools. All categories of business are now benefitting from services provided by the LEOs.“Fine Gael is committed to supporting small and medium businesses that are at the heart of rural communities. Fine Gael’s Standing Up for Small Business campaign engaged closely with small, local businesses while the Standing Up for Rural Ireland campaign which has just been launched, calls for continued investment in rural services, particularly broadband.“The LEOs are a great resource for sole traders, micro businesses and small and medium sized companies seeking information and support on starting or growing a business.”GRANTS OF €374,693 AWARDED TO DONEGAL BUSINESSES BY LOCAL ENETRPRISE OFFICE was last modified: July 17th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The skinny: Most of us will get fat

first_imgBALTIMORE – Just when we thought we couldn’t get any fatter, a new study that followed Americans for three decades suggests that over the long haul, nine out of 10 men and seven out of 10 women will become overweight. Even if you are one of the lucky few who made it to middle age without getting fat, don’t congratulate yourself – keep watching that waistline. Half of the men and women in the study who had made it well into adulthood without a weight problem ultimately became overweight. One-third of those women and one-quarter of the men became obese. “You cannot become complacent, because you are at risk of becoming overweight,” said Ramachandran Vasan, an associate professor of medicine at Boston University and the study’s lead author. Susan Bartlett, an assistant professor of medicine and an obesity researcher at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, said the study was one of the first to look at the risk of becoming overweight. “The results are pretty sobering, really,” said Bartlett, who was not involved in the research. While the health risks of being obese are much more severe than being overweight, those who are overweight are much more likely to go on to become obese, Bartlett said. The study shows Americans live in an “environment in which it’s hard not to become overweight or obese. Unless people actively work against that, that’s what’s most likely to happen to them.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Participants were between the ages of 30 and 59 at the start, and were examined every four years. By the end of the study, more than one in three had become obese. The findings, published today in the Annals of Internal Medicine, show obesity might be a greater problem than indicated by studies that look at a cross section of the population at one point in time. Those so-called “snapshots” of obesity have found about six in 10 are overweight and about one in three is obese, Vasan said. The findings also re-emphasize that people must continually watch their weight, Vasan said. The research subjects were the children of participants in the long-running and often-cited Framingham Heart Study, which has been following the health of generations of Massachusetts residents. Dr. Elizabeth G. Nabel, director of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, which supported the study, said the findings show “we could have an even more serious degree of overweight and obesity over the next few decades.” last_img read more
