Calls for maternity restrictions to be lifted at LUH Twitter Newsx Adverts It’s emerged that Donegal Senator Brian O’Domhnaill has repaid some travel expenses after it emerged that he lived closer to Leinster House than he initially claimed.Last May, he submitted a claim based on his Falcarragh home being 370 km from Leinster House, placing it in “Band 12”, which entitled him to almost 33,000 euro a year. However, in July, two other forms were submitted, one placing him in Band 11 and the other in Band 9.He subsequently confirmed the Band 9 designation was correct, and his home was 290km from Leinster House, cutting his annual entitlement by over 2,000 euro.It’s understood the reductions are based on the route taken to Dublin after new rules were introduced in Leinster House banning so called “Scenic Route” mileage.

The government has unveiled plans for the quicker resolution of workplace disputes – as new research suggested that UK employers remained “cautious” on recruitment.In his opening speech at the second reading of the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, the Business Secretary Vince Cable set out the government’s plans to introduce a measure to boost business confidence and ease the handling of workplace disputes.Meanwhile, a study by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and KPMG suggested the rate of permanent placements across the UK continued to grow in May, but at the slowest rate for five months. The REC said: “This month’s data shows employers are becoming more cautious about hiring and the figures have been getting weaker over the last two months.”Under the measures outlined yesterday by Cable, employers will be able to offer settlement agreements before a formal dispute arises and will be legally protected from this offer being used as evidence in an unfair dismissal tribunal case.Employees will also continue to enjoy full protection of their employment rights, as they can choose to reject the offer of a settlement agreement and proceed to a tribunal.Cable said: “This Bill is an important part of this government’s plan for long-term growth: fostering enterprise, supporting business and creating jobs.“Settlement agreements are smart, fair and pro-business reforms, which deliver results for employees and employers. It empowers employers by enabling them to keep their workforce flexible and encouraging alternative ways of solving workplace problems, rather than resorting to a tribunal. But crucially, it does so in a way that keeps the necessary protections for employees in place.”>> Government outlines food export plan>>Mandatory display of food hygiene rating planned

He started out in the savings and loan industry, but wisely … Web: www.omnichannelcommunications.com Details This has happened to me a number of times. Maybe it’s happened to you, too.You stumble across a hole-in-the-wall restaurant you never even noticed before. The food is absolutely fantastic. The employees treat you like family. And the prices make it possible to take the whole crew out for dinner without breaking the bank.Then one day you show up hungry as can be, only to find locked doors and a “closed” sign. What went wrong?Most likely, the owners suffered from what I call “Field of Dreams” syndrome. They thought that if they created a great restaurant, people would magically appear at their door. In other words, they thought they didn’t need and/or couldn’t afford marketing. Truth be told – and as time proved – they couldn’t afford to not market.Of course, “Field of Dreams” syndrome isn’t limited to just the food-service industry. In fact, I see quite a bit of it in the financial technology space. Companies large and small view marketing as somewhat of an extravagant expense – a nice-to-have rather than a must-have. The real fallacy here is looking at marketing as an expense at all.If you had purchased 1,000 shares of Apple stock in 2003, it would have cost you about $14,000. That’s not chump change. However, if you had held it until now, it would be worth several million dollars. Please, please tell me if you think there’s a single person on this entire planet who would moan and groan about the expense of having to shell out $14,000 for Apple stock, given this scenario. Clearly any sane person would view this as an investment, not an expense. And they’d be damned happy about it.With that thought in mind, it blows me away that companies grumble at the thought of putting money into marketing – an endeavor that’s proven to help grow companies and contribute to the bottom line. Marketing is an investment and – executed properly – it carries a measurable and favorable ROI. If your marketing isn’t making you money, you’re doing it wrong. There’s no other way to say it.The big question is: How much should you really be spending on marketing? Google around and you’ll find varying opinions, but they all seem to fall within the range of 5-10 percent of total revenue. And in fact, that appears to be what B2B companies are actually spending. A survey conducted by CMOsurvey.org based on 2013 data, but likely in line with what’s happening today, showed that in the B2B sector, both product and service companies spent about eight percent of total revenue on marketing. That’s across all revenue sizes.Interestingly, it was the smallest companies – those with less than $25M in revenue – that spent the most on marketing as a percentage of revenue. These companies spent over 11 percent of revenue on marketing. Incidentally, the lowest spending revenue range was $500M-$1B, at only 3.5 percent.Is your marketing investment at least somewhere in the general ballpark of the numbers I shared above? If not, do you think it’s because you know something everybody else doesn’t, or because everybody else knows something you don’t? I hate to break it to you (okay, honestly I don’t), but if you’re under-investing in marketing, you’re really doing your company a disservice.You know the old saying. You have to spend money to make money. That’s not exactly true. You have to invest money to make money. And when you invest wisely in marketing, you can make more money than you ever thought possible.
Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A black-clad armed robber is believed to be responsible for nine robberies and one fatal shooting at gas stations and convenience stores in Nassau County, sparking a massive manhunt for the suspect and increased patrols in the targeted communities, Nassau police’s top cop said.“This subject has demonstrated that he is very violent, or can be very violent,” acting police commissioner Thomas Krumpter said during a press conference at the police department’s Mineola headquarters Tuesday. The investigation “is one of the highest priorities of this department at this time,” he added.To that point, Krumpter was joined by a slew of high-ranking police officials, including the commanders of the both the homicide and robbery squads, which are conducting a joint investigation into the robberies. The Major Case Bureau and Bureau of Special Operations are also assisting in the investigation.Krumpter said nine robberies and one homicide—beginning in Dec. 20 and continuing through February—are being investigated as pattern crimes, and a single assailant is believed to be involved.The suspect is described as a black man between 5-feet, 11-inches and 6-feet tall, with a thin build, wearing all black Nike clothing, a black mask, black gloves, black Nike sneakers with red laces and armed with either a black or a silver revolver. He has targeted seven gas stations and two 7-Eleven stores in Westbury, Hicksville and Jericho, police said. Cash was taken in all of the incidents.The latest incident occurred on Feb. 8, at a Shell gas station on Jericho Turnpike, police said. A Mobil Gas Station on Old Country Road in Westbury has been robbed twice during the one-man crime spree, police said.Investigators also believe the suspect is the same individual who gunned down a 58-year-old Jericho gas station attendant on Jan. 28. Krumpter declined to go into details about what transpired before the gunman fired into Hany Awad’s abdomen, killing him. Police have not classified the incident a robbery, and have not said if anything was taken.“It is unusual to have this number in this time, but what is more concerning is the fact that the homicide is consistent with the pattern of the robberies—and that raises the stakes and makes it very concerning to this department,” Krumpter said.Speaking to residents, Krumpter urged anyone who notices anything suspicious to call 911 immediately. He also urged gas station and convenience store workers to comply if met by an armed assailant. Police have visited all gas stations and convenience stores in the targeted areas, Krumpter said.“We do have a significant amount of resources that are also involved and a significant increase of patrols,” he added.Investigators have also determined that a Shell gas station robbery in North Woodmere on Monday involving a knife-wielding suspect is not a part of this crime spree, police said.Crime Stoppers is offering an award of up to $10,000 for information leading to the suspect’s arrest. A separate $25,000 reward is being offered as part of the homicide investigation.Below are a list of locations that the suspect is believed to have targeted:1) 12/20/2014 2:20 AM, Citgo Gas Station, 495 Union Ave. Westbury, N.Y.2) 12/31/2014 3:27 AM, Mobil Gas Station, 79 Old Country Rd, Westbury, N.Y.3) 01/08/2015 12:25 AM, 7-11 Store, 384 West John St., Hicksville, N.Y.4) 01/12/2015 11:50 PM, Mobil Gas Station, 79 Old Country Rd., Westbury, N.Y.5) 01/13/2015 12:01 AM, 7-11 Store, 384 West John St. Hicksville, N.Y.6) 01/17/2015 6:05 PM, Citgo Gas Station, 495 Union Ave , Westbury, N.Y.7) 01/19/2015 9:14 PM, Hess Gas Station, 880 Old Country Rd., Westbury, N.Y.8) 01/28/2015 9:10 PM, BP Gas Station, 39 Jericho Tpke, Jericho, NY.9) 02/06/2015 9:35 PM, Hess Gas Station, 800 Jericho Tpke, Westbury, NY.10) 02/08/2015 10:20 AM, Shell Gas Station, 420 Jericho Tpke, Jericho, NY.
