NewsLocal NewsBanking on river hubBy admin – June 4, 2009 706 Print Twitter WhatsApp Advertisement Facebook Limerick to ‘cash’ in on leisure potentialSWEEPING new plans for a major development of Limerick’s riverside will maximise the city’s recreational, tourism and ecological potential, Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Central to this strategy is the development of a series of “looped walks”, linked to the city centre and to the expanding suburbs of Coonagh and Caherdavin.Shannon Development and Limerick City Council are examining an extension of the riverside landscape and its opportunity for walking and hiking routes.The Limerick Post has secured a final report which states: “Current research indicates that demand in Ireland is growing steadily for shorter walking routes of a varied nature, ranging from 30 minutes to a day and visitors are also looking for good quality, well marked walks that are relatively easily accessible and themed routes with an historical or environmental focus are particularly effective. Shorter, circular walks with start/finish point in the same location are popular with day visitors”.A kickstart to an expanded development is a looped walk commencing from the Shannon Bridge and the Cleeves Bank complex, which “with its prominent position on the Shannon skyline, is at present under-exploited in terms of its strategic location on the banks of the river and proximity to Shannon Bridge.” The priority walkway from Shannon Bridge will run to Barrington’s Pier and extend on to the tunnel crossing at Coonagh. The continuous looped walkway will proceed under Meelick Bridge and along the creek, around the southern boundary of the industrial estate to Coonagh Road and on to Coonagh Roundabout. Said Cllr Kathleen Leddin.“To someone who is on record for looking for this type of development of our riverside potential for many years, it is great news that we are much closer to seeing this project realised – it will be an invaluable amenity for the people of Limerick and for visitors to the city. “I also welcome the extension of the plan to include the Crumpaun river, which is the traditional boundary between Limerick and County Clare and back towards the Old Cratloe Road, the location of platforms for anglers and for enjoying the scenic views, as well as the walkway from St Michael’s Rowing Club on O’Callaghan Strand out as far as the tunnel entrance at Coonagh – approximately five kilometres of leisure walkway and cyclelane in what is an idyllic part of the city”. The report says that in order to ensure that any activities would not have an impact on water quality and natural habitats, this could be achieved by creating a buffer zone along the embankment side, which would also be necessary to ensure access for maintenance and monitoring by the Office of Public Works.This zoning would promote the use of the Shannon riverside between Shannon Bridge and Meelick Creek as a leisure and natural amenity area and would protect and enhance the natural landscape qualities of the riverside area..

Local looters sell the artifacts to local or regional buyers, who in turn sell to international traffickers. They smuggle the artifacts across borders by bribing authorities and using falsified documents declaring the goods modern Indian-style crafts for legal export, The Associated Press reported. Artisanal workshops in Peru and Bolivia draw upon cultural knowledge to manufacture reproductions of artifacts using original molds, clay and minerals to make the paint for the items. Archeology.org reported that pieces are then marketed and sold as genuinely pre-Columbian. Internet auction sites have provided a hard-to-regulate forum for the illicit trade. Once sold on the Western market, objects continue to circulate for years, perhaps centuries, generating multiple transactions. Global-Regional Concern: Archaeological artifacts are in high demand by private dealers, collectors and auction houses around the world. Antiquities smuggling is estimated to generate as much as $4 billion a year in the global black market, according to Interpol. Grave robbers in poor areas of Latin America loot ancient graves for cash, serving as the first link in the multimillion-dollar black market antiquities trade, The Associated Press reported. Such looting robs countries of their treasures and heritage, and destroys valuable research possibilities. By Dialogo January 01, 2010 For decades, looting has devastated pre- Columbian sites in Guatemala, Brazil, Costa Rica, Mexico, Ecuador and Bolivia. The looting of Peru’s pre-Columbian artifacts began during the Spanish conquest in the 1500s. For centuries, locals have exploited tombs dating back as far as 3,000 B.C., plundering artifacts of gold, silver, precious stones, copper and even mummies. Four tons of fossils were stolen in 2008 from Argentina and later seized in the United States, including 200-million-year-old dinosaur eggs and fossilized prehistoric crabs. Looting of archaeological sites is also widespread throughout Africa and the Middle East. Criminal Method: To counter Peru’s illicit trafficking of antiquities, the International Council of Museums produces the annual Red List of Peruvian Antiquities at Risk. The list is an appeal to museums, auction houses, art dealers and collectors to provide all the necessary guarantees of origin for every purchase of a cultural antiquity coming from Peru. It also helps police and customs officers identify art market objects whose origin is questionable. U.S. museums and galleries are trying to slow the tide of cultural artifacts entering the country, and have agreed in recent years to repatriate artifacts to their countries of origin.

JEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoBo Ryan still may have lost to UW-Eau Claire more times thanhe’s won, but Tuesday night the UW-Madison head coach had no difficulty guidingthe Badgers to a 74-35 victory against the Blugolds to close out the exhibitionseason.While previously coaching at UW-Platteville, Ryan hadtrouble with WIAC conference rival UW-Eau Claire, finishing his career with amark of 14-19 against the Blugolds. As the head coach for the Badgers, though,Ryan now stands at 1-0 against the opponent he used to face, and the last tobeat him while coaching in Division III.”I didn’t even know that,” Ryan said upon hearing Eau-Clairewas the last school to beat him in Division III play, before Ryan’s Plattevilleteam won the national championship in 1999. “I wasn’t going to show [Eau Clairecoach Terry Gibbons] the net that we cut down.”Old rivalries aside, it was Joe Krabbenhoft and TrevonHughes leading the way for UW Tuesday, each scoring 13 points in a game thatsaw the Badgers trail only once briefly in the first half at 3-2.”Overall, I thought everybody did a great job of playingWisconsin basketball tonight,” Krabbenhoft said.Playing in their second and final exhibition game,Wisconsin’s defense was too tough for the visitors to overcome. The Badgersallowed only one Blugold to score in double figures while holding theiropponents to 26 percent shooting for the game and just 12 second half points.After leading 38-23 at the half, Wisconsin took over thegame in the second half, at one point going more than nine minutes withoutallowing an Eau Claire basket and extending its lead to 33 points by the end ofthe stretch.”Sometimes the other team will press a little bit if theyaren’t scoring,” Ryan said of what keyed the defensive effort. “It isn’tanything we did differently defensively. We just used all our roles.”Size also may have been a factor as Eau Claire’s roster wassignificantly smaller than Wisconsin’s. UW was able to out rebound UW-EauClaire 47-21 for the game and brought down eight offensive rebounds, whichhelped the Badgers dominate the paint on both ends of the floor for the secondconsecutive game.”You could definitely tell that they were a bigger team,more physical,” Eau Claire forward Dan Beyer said. “They were more used to thatstyle of Big Ten basketball.”UW-Eau Claire’s tallest player stands 6-foot-9, a heightshared or eclipsed by five UW players. Bluegold coach Terry Gibbons also citedsize as a deciding factor for the contest. “A rebound is a rebound,” Gibbons said. “But when you are6-11 or 7-foot, that ball comes to you a little faster.”Playing a smaller and weaker opponent didn’t stop theBadgers from giving the majority of playing time to those expected to see moreaction over the course of the regular season, though. After distributingplaying time fairly evenly across the board against Edgewood, Wisconsin wentwith a more traditional rotation in their final tune-up before the seasonopener, waiting until the second half before emptying the bench and limitingthe minutes of players deeper on the depth chart.”I feel confident in all these guys,” Ryan said of hisroster. “It’s just that some are further ahead than others right now.”Freshmen Jon Leuer, Keaton Nankivil and Tim Jarmusz all had playingtime against the Blugolds and showed potential. Leuer, however, was unable toreproduce his performance on Sunday when the forward scored 15 points in hisKohl Center debut.”Some nights one might look better than the other,” Ryansaid of the freshmen. “The three have done a great job.”Some things were taken away from [Leuer], that doesn’t meanJon isn’t going to come out the next time and do some good things.”Leuer and the rest of the Badgers should feel confidentabout that next time, the regular season opener, after winning with 29 and 39point margins in their two exhibition wins.”At the end of the game as the clock was winding, weall looked at each other and said, ‘Now we’re ready to go,'” Krabbenhoft said.”We’re ready to go out there.”
