Scottish LEZs coming by May 2022, leadership group says

first_imgLow Emission Zones (LEZs) will be introduced in the four Scottish cities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow between February 2022 and May 2022, the country’s LEZ Leadership Group has decided.That represents “an indicative timeframe” and not a finalised schedule, the Group says. The legislative and regulatory steps that need to be taken by the Scottish Government and relevant local authorities (LAs) will be considered before the Zones are introduced.Plans to implement the LEZs were temporarily paused in May because of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. The LEZ Leadership Group says that while no specific introduction dates have yet been set, it will “work as quickly as [it] can to introduce LEZs at the earliest juncture.”The LEZs were originally due for introduction this year. In November 2019, Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity Michael Matheson – who sits on the LEZ Leadership group – described achieving that as “critical.”On the announcement that the LEZs will debut in 2022, Mr Matheson says: “With the indicative timeline now established, planning continues at an LA level. The Scottish Government will continue to develop the required regulations, as well as providing funding to help people and businesses prepare.”LAs will “explore grace periods following introduction and will balance the needs of businesses and residents with the urgent requirement to tackle pockets of poor air quality,” the LEZ Leadership Group adds. Those grace periods may be between one year and four years in duration.Scottish LEZs will require Euro VI compliance of coaches and buses if penalty charges are to be avoided. Money has already been awarded to operators to upgrade vehicles to meet Euro VI standards, including £9.8m through a third phase of the Bus Emission Abatement Retrofit scheme in September.Glasgow has already begun a phased introduction of its LEZ. Thus far it applies only to buses.last_img read more

Germany seeks support for dioxin action plan

first_imgOne idea that Aigner is floating is to put requirements on companies that produce oils and fatty acids to obtain authorisation before they can do business, so that they have to prove their technical competence. Another idea is to introduce an EU-wide list of substances that can be used in making animal feed. Germany and Austria already have such lists in place, and Aigner would like this approach extended across Europe. Safety breach The dioxin crisis is far from over. On Saturday (15 January), German authorities ordered the closure of several hundred farms that had been re-opened, after a feed manufacturer confessed that it had not provided a full list of farms that might have received contaminated feed – a lapse described by John Dalli, the European commissioner for health and consumer policy, as “a very serious infringement of EU food-safety provisions”. Around 900 farms remain closed, compared to 4,700 in the early days of the crisis. Some of Aigner’s ideas already have the support of the Commission. Dalli told MEPs on Monday (17 January) that he was looking at the possibility of new rules to ensure that fats and oils used for food and feed were produced in separate facilities from those used for industry. The contamination began when dioxin-laden fats intended for the paper industry were added to animal feed. Ilse Aigner, Germany’s agriculture minister, will call on her EU counterparts to back tougher controls on the animal-feed industry, in the wake of the dioxins scare that saw contaminated eggs and meat from Germany going to six neighbouring countries. At an emergency meeting on Tuesday (18 January), Aigner and Germany’s 16 regional agriculture ministers agreed a 14-point plan aimed at preventing a repeat of the food scare, including tougher penalties for putting contaminated food on the market, more inspections and a Germany-wide system of early warning about possible dioxin contamination. Aigner, who has faced calls from her domestic opposition to resign, also signalled that she wanted changes in European Union rules, which she will outline on Monday (24 January) at an EU meeting of agriculture ministers in Brussels. The Commission has also announced that it is sending a team of veterinary specialists from the EU’s Food and Veterinary Office to Germany next week to investigate the situation. MEPs are keeping up the pressure on the Commission and Germany to tighten food-safety rules. George Lyon, a British Liberal MEP, called on EU and German authorities to conduct a full investigation “to establish what went wrong and why tough European rules, introduced in the wake of BSE [mad cow disease], did not prevent another food scare”. Contaminated meat and eggs from Germany have been picked up in the Czech Republic, France, the Netherlands, Poland and the UK. Breeding hens were exported to Denmark. Ministers are not expected to agree conclusions on Monday, but an official from one of the countries that had received contaminated German products said “we will support anything that will enhance and enlarge food safety”. ? The dioxins topic was a late addition to the agenda of the council of agriculture ministers. At the one-day meeting, ministers will have a further debate about reforming the Common Agricultural Policy, this time focused on aligning the farm support policy with environmental goals, such as soil and water protection.last_img read more

Identify client groups to get your message across to the right people

first_imgThere are many useful online discussions on marketing and management issues that I feel sure are helping to develop legal services marketing. In these discussions, descriptions of clients, customer groups and market segments appear to be variable and used interchangeably without much thought to what they mean. These compact descriptions hide many of the details that slow or stop actual promotions happening. This is because once you ask who your potential future clients that should know about your services are, it all gets rather complicated. How do we usefully identify client groups in meaningful ways that help get your firm’s promotional messages across without costing too much? ‘Conveyancing clients’ is a group that covers a wide range of customer needs. Are they first-time buyers, families trading up/down or seniors cashing out of the property market? What about probate, matrimonial and commercial client types? Each legal service has a distinct group of potential clients who may need a particular set of benefits to suit their situation. The other side of this issue is how to avoid paying to send the wrong message to potential clients. The answer is a similar response to the question: ‘How long is a piece of string?’ Measure it or define it yourself by looking at what your firm does well. Think about the services you offer in your firm’s geographic area. Look at your past clients and what best describes them, things like postcode, income levels, family or business circumstances. Enquiry sources, referrers and professional contacts may also help you identify discernable groups with similar legal services requirements. Since the aim is to retain or gain clients in an increasing competitive market (particularly people interested in conveyancing around Bristol) talking about client groups’ needs for legal services and not the services you offer will help you deliver the right benefits messages to the right people. Defined future client groups should always be viewed with two other factors: the relevant future competitive services and the benefits the client will receive. If the client group changes, the benefits and competitors will also change. Spending the time to do this analysis will save promotional budget, make marketing choices easier and provide better-informed website debates.last_img read more

Levski broke a new sad anti-record

first_imgAfter another failure in the championship, Levski broke a new sad anti-record in its history, Meridian Match writes.Weak Levski continues to break anti-records, lost to Tsarsko Selo and is dangerously close to the last place in the elite!The Blues with a new embarrassing match of GerenaFor the first time, the Blues failed to win 6 consecutive championship matches at their stadium. They have no victory for Gerena in 2020. From its beginning Levski failed to win at home against Slavia (twice 1: 2), Ludogorets – 0: 1, Loko (Pd) 1: 2, Beroe 0: 2 and Tsarsko Selo – 0: 1. As you can see, all six games are losses.So far, the hosts had reached 5 consecutive unbeaten matches of “Gerena” only in 2013.Then, however, the series was better for the “blues” because there were draws -1: 1 with Slavia, 1: 2 with Loko (Pd), 0: 0 with Beroe, 1: 1 with Cherno More and 0: 2 with Ludogorets.Sirakov, Papazov and Kolev stand before the media at 11:00The event will take place in the VIP hall in Sector “A” of the stadium “Vivacom Arena – Georgi Asparuhov”last_img read more

Anderson takes it by six

Spieth piling up wins at rate not seen since Tiger Woods

first_imgHe got some perspective from a victory Sunday at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am that was dull as it was dominant.Few walks up the 18th hole are more enjoyable than Pebble Beach, especially with the sun gleaming off the Pacific and the sound of waves on the shore. It’s even better with a four-shot lead, with nothing left to do but hoist the trophy.Spieth’s four-shot victory after closing with a 2-under 70 was the ninth of his PGA Tour career in 100 tournaments, making him the youngest player since Tiger Woods to claim that many titles.“I remember walking up 18 today thinking to myself, ‘I don’t think that I’ve enjoyed the wins as much as I’ve talked to myself about the losses,’” Spieth said. “I don’t think I’ve really enjoyed on the inside how much it takes to win out here and the hard work that goes into winning.”He sure made it look easy.Spieth effectively won this tournament late Saturday afternoon, when he took only 10 putts on the back nine and closed with three birdies over his final four holes to build a six-shot lead.He thought about Woods when he set out to play the final round.Spieth was only 6 when Woods won the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach with a record 15-shot victory. Woods set a private goal of not making a bogey in the final round, and he wound up playing the final 26 holes without dropping a shot.“I don’t remember watching it, but I remember watching highlights of Tiger trying to hold his bogey-free round when he had such a big lead,” Spieth said. “That was kind of his goal. That was mine today. Hey, let’s try and keep a clean card. … Played a lot of boring golf today, which is exactly what was needed.”Spieth played his final 28 holes without a bogey, not as remarkable as what Woods did in U.S. Open conditions, but it did the trick.No one had much of a chance.Spieth putted for birdie on all but one hole. The one time he was in trouble, with a shot that went long of the 13th green, he hit a flop shot up to 5 feet and saved par. The other 17 holes, his longest two par putts were from 3 feet.“He did exactly what he was supposed to do and played a great round of golf,” said Brandt Snedeker, a two-time Pebble winner who played in the final group with Spieth and shot 70 to finish fourth. “Sometimes those are the hardest rounds of golf, when you have the lead that he had. It was fun to watch him do his thing out there.”Kelly Kraft, a former U.S. Amateur champion, was in the best position to apply a little pressure. He ran off four straight birdies on the front nine to get within four, made another birdie on No. 11 to get within three and didn’t make anything else the rest of the way.This was Spieth’s day in the sun, and it felt sweet for a number of reasons.He had not won on the PGA Tour since Colonial last May, and part of him wanted to get going before he arrived at Augusta National the first week in April. This was the first time Spieth had a 54-hole lead since the Masters last year, when he stretched a one-shot lead to five shots at the turn only to collapse around Amen Corner.This was a clinic.“I didn’t rely on the putter at all today,” Spieth said. “And to win that way is new for me, and it certainly kept some more hair on my head.”Spieth didn’t move anywhere in the world ranking. He was at No. 6, but because he had fallen so far behind the top five, he stayed at No. 6. That figures to change over the next month during the latest battle for supremacy.But his name, and the way he won with a combination of a reliable swing and his putting stroke, is sure to get attention.Spieth was the seventh straight PGA Tour winner in his 20s. Justin Thomas (23) won back-to-back weeks in Hawaii. Hudson Swafford (29) won in the California desert. Jon Rahm (22) won at Torrey Pines and Hideki Matsuyama (24) won in Phoenix. Late last year, Mackenzie Hughes (25) won at Sea Island.The difference is that Spieth now has as one fewer PGA Tour victory as the other six combined.All but Rahm will be at Riviera next week for the Genesis Open, the strongest field of the year. It’s harder than ever to win on the PGA Tour.
