NewsLocal NewsPromissory note repayment will cost jobsBy admin – April 17, 2012 566 LIMERICK-born economist, Tom McDonnell, believes that recent moves to negotiate a deal on the Anglo Irish and Irish Nationwide promissory notes, is a positive move.Mr McDonnell was speaking at Mary Immaculate College. He did, however, warn that the structure of the deal and in particular the interest rate, would be crucial to Ireland’s debt sustainability“As it stands, the promissory notes will cost €47 billion over the next 20 years. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “It is welcome that the Government is now prioritising this issue and realises that the current structure of Ireland’s debt burden and the promissory note payments has to be renegotiated with a view to easing the burden on the Irish state and ensuring Ireland’s debt sustainability into the medium term. “However, the structure of any deal is crucial. We don’t yet know exactly what will come about and in particular there is no information regarding what the interest rate on payments might be.”Mr McDonnell was speaking before addressing a public meeting on promissory note that was hosted by the Limerick One World Society.“The promissory notes constitute our remaining €30.6 billion bill for the private debts of Anglo and the INBS – a bill due to be paid by the Irish people through higher taxes and lower public spending: he pointed out. “While most of the Anglo/INBS bondholders have now been repaid, we will be footing the bill for that repayment for years in terms of lower public spending and higher taxes – taxes which will be used to pay for bank debt rather than for improved public services or infrastructure. He said that over 2% of GDP will be sucked out of the economy each year up to 2023 to meet the promissory note repayments, which will mean more job losses and more pressure on a battered economy and society.“TASC (an independent, progressive think-tank dedicated to promoting equality, democracy and sustainability in Ireland through evidence-based policy recommendations), has suggested that the Government seek to convert the promissory notes into a low-interest long-term government bond – sometimes called a ‘bullet bond,” which is repayable over a longer period, such as 50 or even 100 years and has long argued that at least some of the former Anglo’s private banking debt that was socialised should be written-down.”He concluded that the outcome of the negotiations being conducted by the Department of Finance and the ECB will have a long-term impact on Ireland’s debt sustainability and economic recovery.

Public gatherings were restricted to 10 people and authorities subsequently ordered hotels across Greece to close until April 30, stepping up measures to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 respiratory disease.Greeks have for the most part heeded the government’s call to stay home and practice social distancing. But some opted to flee to the islands or head to their countryside homes, defying official warnings of contagion risks.This prompted the government to ban such trips on ferries and allow them only for island residents.Restrict the ‘frivolous few’Mitsotakis said he would not allow a frivolous few to undermine the safety of most.”Staying at home is essentially the most profound demonstration of our collective duty,” he said.Effective from Monday, people venturing out of their homes to head to or return form work will have to carry a completed form detailing their residence, work address and working hours or otherwise face a 150 euro fine if stopped by the police.All other allowed reasons to be on the streets – to visit a pharmacy, doctor, bank, food store or supermarket as well as to walk a pet and for physical exercise – will require a completed form or notifying the civil protection ministry via text messaging and mentioning the reason one has to be outside.”We do not circulate outside for no reason. We stay at home,” crisis management minister Nikos Hardalias told reporters. Topics : Greece announced a lockdown on Sunday, restricting movement from Monday morning with only a few exceptions, to combat the spread of coronavirus.”It is maybe the last step, one that must be taken promptly and not in vain,” Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in a televised address. “We have to protect the common good, our health.”Greece confirmed 94 new cases on Sunday, its largest single-day jump, taking its total to 624, with 15 deaths, up two. Citing Italy, which reported almost 800 new deaths on Saturday, Mitsotakis said it was his duty to prevent such a tragedy hitting Greece.”We must not get to the point where we will have to choose who lives and who dies,” he said.Only those going to or returning from work, shopping for food or medicines or visiting a doctor will be allowed onto the streets from Monday.Starting on March 10, Greece acted fast to gradually close schools, gyms, cinemas, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, retail shops, shopping malls, museums and archaeological sites including the Acropolis, ahead of other governments in Europe.

APS Instructional Coach, Natalie Gentry, says this kind of specialized attention will help students develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for reading.“Alpena Public School students benefit from daily targeted instruction. They work one on one with the interventionist and, again, it’s targeted skills. We’ve seen great improvement in their reading skills, also in their reading comprehension and just confidence and building a passion for reading.”Community members from a variety of backgrounds are eligible to apply. The first prerequisite is patience and the desire to educate young children. Other requirements call for candidates to have a high school diploma or equivalent, be 18 years or older by the start date, and submit to a background check.If selected, AmeriCorps members will receive a living allowance in exchange for their work. That’s in addition to the reward of helping a child build a solid foundation for his or her future.“It approximately $670 bi-weekly after they complete their 1,200 hours of service they receive an education award of up to $4,300 and that education award can be used to pay back federal loans or pay for tuition for other educational expenses,” says Gentry.To apply, visit https://fs16.formsite.com/servetogrow/tq9g7urfqp/index.html AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alpena Public Schools, AmeriCorps, APS, SchoolContinue ReadingPrevious Alpena Public Schools finalizes graduation plansNext Local college honors graduates with virtual ceremony
