Shannon Dev best for cost of new jobs

first_imgAdvertisement NewsLocal NewsShannon Dev best for cost of new jobsBy admin – September 22, 2011 515 THE cost to the taxpayer of each job created by Shannon Development is almost half that of each job created by the IDA or Enterprise Ireland.New figures show that for every job which Shannon Development creates, the exchequer hands over €7,552. That’s in comparison with a cost of €14,287 for each job created by IDA Ireland and €12,254 for any job created by Enterprise Ireland.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The official figures were supplied to the Dáil Committee on Jobs, Social Protection and Education on foot of a request by Deputy Willie O’Dea, who is a member of the committee.Concerned that a section in the current Programme for Government states its intention to examine whether there is a role for the development body in the future, Mr O’Dea said:“This just goes to prove that Shannon Development is a very efficient body.“It would be foolish in the extreme to consider abolishing a job creation agency which is getting people into employment at such a low cost – the figures speak for themselves.“You can’t argue with the facts. It’s creating jobs at half the cost to the taxpayer when compared with the bigger agencies. It would be ludicrous to abolish this small agency which does a fantastic job.”The cost per job is a figure calculated by Forfás and is arrived at after taking into account the job-creating agency’s spend. The figure is calculated over a seven year period.Responding to the deputy’s comments, Enterprise Ireland said that while that figure is correct for the period 2004 – 20010, their cost per job for the seven years to 2008 was “€7,794, which is comparable to other agencies during that period.” Factors affecting the rise in cost were the extra supports provided by Enterprise Ireland to help companies withstand the worst recession in decades and the fact that Enterprise Ireland administers schemes such as dairy beef and sheep funds for third parties.The lower number of jobs sustained in that period by the agency was also due to the recession and particularly affected by the fact that Enterprise Ireland works with one of the worst hit industries, construction.There was no comment available from IDA Ireland at time of going to press.

Volleyball to open Pac-12 play against rival Bruins

first_imgTo prepare for UCLA’s attack, the Trojans are practicing defending against a mix of roll-shots and hard swings. USC struggled to defend this mix of shots against Yale, and UCLA excels at mixing up its hits.  Crouch hopes to have a more consistent rotation once everyone is healthy. Just two players for the Trojans have played in all 39 sets this year: last year’s Pac-12 Freshman of the Year setter Raquel Lázaro and senior middle blocker Jasmine Gross. This past weekend, Crouch began that process by subbing just four times all match.  Though as the team is fighting through injuries, it is coming closer to full health. Senior opposite hitter Emily Baptista is expected to make her full return this week. Baptista, still recovering from a knee injury, has only played in 10 sets so far this season — all in the Trojan Invitational two weekends ago. The tilt between USC and UCLA will begin conference play for both teams. UCLA enters the match with a record of 5-4 but is coming off two straight 3-0 defeats.  The Trojans can now count on consistent contributions from All-American senior outside hitter Khalia Lanier, who recovered from a concussion suffered earlier in the season. Despite missing two weeks of play, Lanier is third on the team in kills with 92 and has posted a .316 kill rate this season. The Trojans’ current starting rotation still lacks experience and faces various injuries — but head coach Brent Crouch sees a silver lining. “So while we haven’t started clicking yet with the starting group, overall I think because people are getting out there and playing a lot … the team-building part is way more advanced than it was last year,” Crouch said.  The team’s leader in kills, freshman outside hitter Kalen Owes, sat out in the matchup with Long Beach State.   “We were really clicking against Long Beach [State], and I didn’t want to disrupt that flow,” Crouch said.  Though the Bruins run a tricky offense, they have only two hitters with over 50 kills this season compared to five for USC. The Bruins’ leading hitter is junior outside hitter Mac May, an All-American honorable mention last year. center_img The return of injured senior opposite Emily Baptista (left) will give an inconsistent USC squad a much-needed boost as it begins conference play. (Tal Volk | Daily Trojan) The Trojans have seen their ranking steadily drop from No. 14 all the way to No. 25 after a shaky 6-4 start. Battered with injuries, the talented roster has yet to reach its full potential.   Facing UCLA on the road is always a difficult matchup for any USC team, but the atmosphere at UCLA’s home opener will prove even tougher than usual.  “There’s the challenge of the venue, of the energy that will be for UCLA in that match,” Crouch said. “The emotions that are connected with playing your rival and learning how to play our game despite those distractions will be important, and I think we are getting good at that.”  “They are going to be fired up to play us,” Crouch said. “We won the last few, but they are always going to be motivated to give us their best.” UCLA mostly runs an offense that includes two setters, meaning there are always three hitters available — making the offense difficult to defend. The Trojans enter the matchup after an up-and-down weekend in San Diego. USC lost in a hard-fought five-set match to USD then bounced back with a dominant sweep of Long Beach State.  USC went 2-0 against the Bruins in 2018, sweeping them in the first matchup and winning a five-set battle in the second.  USC and UCLA’s storied crosstown rivalry will be renewed Wednesday when the No. 25 Trojans women’s volleyball team travels to Pauley Pavilion. last_img read more
