A well-known Donegal pub has been fined €250 and ordered not to sell cigarettes for a period of time because its smoking area was not up-to-standard.Patsy Dan’s Bar in Dunfanaghy.The HSE took a case against Patsy Dan’s Bar in Dunfanaghy which was heard at yesterday’s sitting of Falcarragh District Court. The authority claimed that the smoking area was not compliant with regulations set down.The court was told that there have been discussions about the smoking area between the owners and the HSE since August 2013.Environmental Health Officer Maeve Costello said she called out to do an initial inspection of the premises on January 9th, 2014.She said the smoking area, which is located between the bar and the adjoining Rooney’s Nightclub, was not compliant in her view.She made a number of recommendations to the owners and said it appeared they were taking those recommendations on board.The court was shown various diagrams in which Ms Costelloe claimed the smoking area was not compliant.Ms Costelloe said she returned to the premises in September, 2014 and while some changes had been made, other aspects had not been complied with.There was various legal argument between Ms Costelloe and Mr Patsy Gallagher, solicitor for the owners Brendan and Ciara Devine.Mr Gallagher argued that there was more than 50% ventilation in the area and that this was more than enough for patrons.However, Ms Costelloe argued that more than two thirds of the yard, which measures a total of 6.4 metres by 2.6 metres, was covered by a roof.Solicitor for the HSE, Ms Lisa Finnegan said the reality was that plans were produced and that if they were changed, the case would not be before the court.Judge Paul Kelly put this to Mr Gallagher saying that if his client did what he said he was going to do then “we would not be here.”However, Mr Gallagher added “We’re saying the ventilation is there are that we are compliant. There is a substantial yard and ample ventilation which exceeds 50%.”Judge Kelly said he had found that the bar was not compliant.He said proprietors were trying to make smoking outdoors as comfortable as possible for their patrons but that they were running into problems with the legislation as a result.He fined the operating company of the bar, Cape Verde Sol, a total of €250 and awarded costs of €1,250 against them.He also said there was a mandatory disqualification from selling cigarettes and ordered this to last two days.He applied the probation act to Mr and Mrs Devine.WELL-KNOWN BAR FOUND GUILTY OF NOT COMPLYING WITH SMOKING LAWS was last modified: January 22nd, 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) Tags:donegalDunfanaghyMaeve CostelloPatsy Dans Barsmoking laws
Rhebokskloof’s cellar has produced a number of award-winning wines. (Image: Rhebokskloof) The Treefree mark guarantees that no trees were felled during the paper-making process.. (Image: Paarl Media) MEDIA CONTACTS • Nicola BesterRhebokskloof marketing and PR+27 21 869 8386• Paarl Media GroupMedia liaison+27 21 870 3800 RELATED ARTICLES • SA wines lead ‘green’ label drive • SA wine on world top 100 list • Backsberg’s ‘green’ wine • SA wine bottles to lighten upJanine ErasmusThe South African wine industry is again showing its commitment to caring for the environment with the introduction of the first wine label that contains no wood fibre.Rhebokskloof Wine estate in Paarl, Western Cape, is the first winemaker in South Africa to use wood fibre-free labels on its bottles. The winery, which has operated since 1797, produces not only a range of award-winning wines, but also olives and table grapes.The local wine industry has already introduced green innovations such as lightweight glass bottles, carbon-neutral production processes, and the sustainability seal which assures consumers that their purchase was produced responsibly every step of the way.Now Rhebokskloof’s Estate Shiraz 2009 will sport a label completely free of wood fibre, which means that no trees were cut down to make the paper. Instead, the label is made from sugarcane fibre.Fast-growing sugarcane is widely cultivated in South Africa and is 100% renewable. The fibre or bagasse is a by-product of sugar refining and is all that is left after the juice has been squeezed from the sugarcane stalks, hence it doesn’t add any extra burden to the environment unlike chopping down trees for conventional labels.“Every bit helps to preserve the environment and that is why we decided to use a new wood-free label paper called Treefree,” said Rhebokskloof MD Anton du Toit, confirming that not one tree was harmed in the manufacturing process.Exciting developmentThe Treefree paper, which is available from mid-November, was developed by Paarl Labels together with UPM Raflatac, the label materials supply division of Finnish forest product company UPM.The material is hailed as an exciting development in the local label industry, which derives a large proportion of its income from wine and beverages. The new labels are indistinguishable from any other quality label, yet they are completely harmless in ecological terms.Paarl Labels claims that the Treefree label will not suffer the fate of many other labels after sitting for hours in an ice bucket, and will still look fresh and undamaged despite its soggy surroundings.The paper weighs 110 grams per square metre and has an uncoated surface, which gives it a natural feel and a neutral, earthy colour. The colour can be subtly altered according to the client’s preference.Treefree is suitable for additional processes such as screen printing and hot-stamp foiling, and is coated with a permanent acrylic adhesive which holds well to a glass surface even when wet. Paarl Labels is confident that, should there be sufficient demand for Treefree on plastic bottles, they will be able to rise to the challenge.It is a relatively heavy paper and, said Paarl Labels MD Callie de Wet, may not be suitable for small, thin bottles such as those used for miniatures.“We recommend a proper test process before Treefree gets selected for any of these sharp curved applications,” said De Wet.He said that the launch of the Treefree label is another step forward for Paarl Labels’ commitment to responsible printing, and will give their clients the peace of mind of knowing that they are contributing towards care of the environment.
23 August 2012 In a vote of confidence in South Africa’s automotive industry, Nissan is to invest R1-billion in the expansion of its plant at Rosslyn outside Pretoria in order to double its capacity and to prepare for production of a new one-ton pick-up range aimed at both the local and export markets. The company made the announcement on Wednesday to coincide with the visit to South Africa of Toshiyuki Shiga, chief operating officer of Nissan Motor Company of Japan. Shiga told journalists at the Rosslyn plant that he was “here today to say we are now more interested in committing ourselves to business in Africa”. South Africa, he said, would “serve as our door to more of the continent”. The move is also in response to the state’s Automotive Production and Development Plan (APDP), which will come into effect in 2013, aiming to pick up where the current industry plan leaves off by stimulating the expansion of local production to 1.2-million vehicles per annum by 2020, with an associated deepening of the local auto components industry. According to Business Day, Nissan’s investment is aimed at doubling producation at the plant to about 100 000 units a year, starting from the 2014 financial year. Nissan South Africa MD Mike Whitfield told Engineering News that the expansion of the plant would create about 800 new direct jobs and about 4 000 jobs in its supply chain. Nissan SA would also be partnering with the Gauteng provincial government in investing an additional R200-million in setting up a training centre to ensure that the skills needed for the plant’s expansion were available. Whitlfield told Engineering News that the local content of the new pick-up, excluding the power train, would be increased from the 50% of the current Hardbody pick-up to 70% of its replacement. National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of SA director Nico Vermeulen told Business Day that Nissan’s investment showed confidence in South Africa’s industry. “BMW launched its new 3-series, Ford its new Ranger, VW its Polo Vivo and so on, all recently,” Vermeulen said. “Toyota made a big investment in 2006. “We can see that major automotive manufacturers are on course to work with the APDP, which shows the industry is on a good track.” SAinfo reporter

The freedom that we celebrate today is a precious gift bequeathed to us by leaders such as Ahmed Kathrada, says Brand South Africa’s CEO Kingsley Makhubela.Ahmed Kathrada’s quest for a great South Africa did not end after the advent of democracy. He continued serving the country as a political adviser to President Nelson Mandela after 1994. (Image: Shamin Chibba)Johannesburg, Wednesday 29 March 2017 – “The nation will always remember struggle stalwart Ahmed Kathrada as a hero and freedom fighter, but mostly for his magnanimous and selfless sacrifices for a free, just and democratic South Africa,” said Brand South Africa CEO, Dr Kingsley Makhubela.Fondly known as ‘uncle Kathy’ to South Africans, the former political prisoner and anti-apartheid activist Ahmed Kathrada who is being laid to rest today – passed away at age 87 in the early hours of Tuesday morning at the Donald Gordon Hospital in Johannesburg.Kathrada spent 26 years in jail,18 of which on Robben Island – after being convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment, with hard labour, alongside Mandela, Denis Goldberg, Andrew Mlangeni, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Raymond Mhlaba and Elias Motsoaledi during the Rivonia Treason trial.He was released from prison on 15 October 1989, at the age of 60. In 1994, Kathrada was elected as a member of parliament for the ANC, and served as Parliamentary Counsellor to President Nelson Mandela until 1999.“The freedom that we celebrate today is a precious gift bestowed to us by leaders like ‘uncle Kathy’. South Africa has lost one of its greatest leaders – an honourable man who represented peace and justice for all. In honour of his memory and to celebrate his legacy, all South Africans should strive to make our country better by protecting the freedom that so many who came before us fought for and died for.“We wish to express our most sincere condolences to the family and loved ones of struggle hero. We share in your mourning, and hope you find comfort in the tributes pouring in from the nation and the world,” concluded Dr Makhubela.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

This is a guest blog post written David Kirkpatrick, B2B and consumer marketing beat reporter for MarketingSherpa. He is covering HubSpot’s participation at Dreamforce ’11, offering insights on the various speakers and events.Wednesday afternoon at Dreamforce ’11, I had the chance to chat with Dan Zarrella before his presentation on engineering contagious social media ideas. I congratulated him on his recent Guinness World Record setting webinar on the same topic. Dan’s “Science of … ” webinar series has been drawing impressive numbers, and the record-setting online event topped nearly 31,000 registrants and an astounding 11,000+ attendees.Dan said he was very happy with the numbers, but added his competitive nature wishes there is someone else out there gunning for his “largest webinar” title. In fact he even called out two potential adversaries. He said that, because of the sheer size of its user base, Facebook is an obvious potential challenger.And since Salesforce was able to get more than 45,000 people to register for, and actually physically attend, a weeklong live event in Dreamforce, he thinks they would easily be able to present a credible threat to his title.With the gauntlet thrown down for both Facebook and Salesforce, it was time for the session.The premise of the presentation, and Dan’s new book Zarrella’s Hierarchy of Contagiousness, is the three-step hierarchy:ExposureAttentionMotivationDuring his talk, Dan presented a series of social media myths along with takeaways that covered all three steps. He also addressed the idea that there are too many “unicorns and rainbows” in social media marketing advice. This advice, he said, consist of myths that aren’t based on anything more substantial than “what feels right.”Here are some myths and takeaways about the 3-step hierarchy that Dan covered during his Dreamforce session.1. ExposureMyth: “Engaging in the conversation” is the most important thing in social media.Takeaway: “Engaging in the Conversation” doesn’t work. Publishing interesting content does.Myth: Don’t call yourself a guru.Takeaway: Identify yourself authoritatively. Bio words that lead to more Twitter followers include “official,” “founder,” “speaker,” “expert,” “guru,” and “author.”2. AttentionMyth: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are bad days to publish.Takeaway: Use contra-competitive timing. In reality, retweets on Twitter spike on Friday, and Facebook shares spike on Saturday.Takeaway: Don’t crowd your own content. Spread out the sharing of your own material.3. MotivationTakeaway: Novel ideas are contagious.Takeaway: Write simply and plainly. Content heavy with nouns and verbs lead to more Facebook shares than adjective and adverb laden text. Sharing goes down as the reading level of content goes up, and people don’t want to read overly flowery writing.Takeaway: Utilize combined relevance. Two seemingly unrelated items or topics can join to uncover a unique market. In Dan’s case he likes both marketing and zombies. When a blog post was written combining the two, Dan’s inbox was flooded with links and messages telling him, “You have to check this out. It was written just for you.”Myth: “Please ReTweet” doesn’t work.Takeaway: Don’t forget social calls-to-action. In fact, adding “please retweet” to a Twitter message generates four times the retweets than posts without those two words.In what ways to you make your content contagious in social media?
