We have some of the safest roads in the world but we are always looking at how we can make them safer. Motorcyclists and other vulnerable road users are particularly at risk. The new small mammal warning sign should help to reduce the number of people killed and injured, as well as helping our precious small wild mammal population to flourish. At PTES roadkill has long been a concern, which is why we launched our Mammals on Roads survey. We have also joined forces with the British Hedgehog Preservation Society to deliver the Hedgehog Street campaign, meeting with Mr Grayling to express our concerns for hedgehogs on roads and elsewhere. We welcome this focus on road safety and protection for all small mammals. Switchboard 0300 330 3000 Hundreds of people are injured every year in collisions involving animals in the road, according to the latest Department for Transport figures.In 2017, 629 people were injured in accidents involving an animal in the road (excluding horses) and 4 people were killed.Transport Secretary Chris Grayling has today (17 June 2019) unveiled a new traffic sign, featuring a hedgehog, which warns road users of hazards due to animals in the road ahead and could be placed in areas where accident rates are highest.He is calling on local authorities and animal welfare groups to identify accident and wildlife hotspots where the sign should be located.The road sign is also designed to reverse the decline in wildlife numbers, in particular, hedgehogs whose population in rural areas has halved since 2000.Chris Grayling said: These signs will be used to warn motorists in areas where there are large concentrations of small wild animals, including squirrels, badgers, otters and hedgehogs.The move also comes shortly before a refreshed Road Safety Statement and two-year action plan are published. These will look at further ways to reduce the number of deaths on the roads.This warning sign is available for any local highway authority in England to use on their roads on application to the Department for Transport, please contact [email protected] Media enquiries 020 7944 3021 Powered two-wheelers provide a great solution to road congestion, but like all road users, riders must be aware of those around them. Therefore the MCIA is pleased to welcome these new signs that will help everyone, including those on 2 wheels or 4 legs, complete their journeys more safely. News desk enquiries New road sign launchedThe Transport Secretary is also meeting with road safety experts today, including Brake, the AA and the RAC Foundation, together with animal protection groups including the Wildlife Trust, to discuss the scale of the problem.Between 2005 and 2017, 100 people were killed, with a further 14,173 injured in accidents where an animal was in the road.Tony Campbell, chief executive of the Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA), said: Out of hours media enquiries 020 7944 4292 The small wildlife sign complements other warning signs already used on UK roads, filling a gap between warnings about smaller animals such as migratory toads and wildfowl, and large animals such as deer and livestock.Jill Nelson, CEO at People’s Trust for Endangered Species, said:

Day One: “The Deep Creek Deluge” – September 5th As we chill out after a busy summer at Deep Creek Lake/Wisp Resort and prepare for the epic paddleboard tour, the weather channel is forecasting flash floods for Western Maryland for the evening. The extended forecast for the rest of the week does not look much better: 6”- 10” of rainfall over the next 3 days. What a way to start out on a five-state, 24-lakes river stand up paddleboard adventure. The only positive from the weather report is that Hurricane Katia is most likely going to make a turn to the right and not come ashore in North Carolina later in the week. A friend from my days at Snowshoe Mountain, Jeff Gee, is joining me for the first 4 days of the tour. This tour is all about paddleboarding and relaxing. I am not going to let a little rain (no, a lot of rain) ruin the epic adventure.Our evening paddle launched at Deep Creek Lake State Park. This is one of the nicest parks in the Maryland Park system. We launched at the beach area, which is a great place to learn the sport of paddleboarding. Wisp Resort operates the beach concession at the park and offers paddleboard rentals, tours and instruction. This area of the lake offers a great 1 – 2 hour paddle to the end of Carmel Cove. Carmel Cove is a no wake area (powerboats must make no wakes) and the reward at the end of the cove is a narrow water trail into a marsh and past a couple of beaver dams. The water is clear and you can see some of the tree stumps from when the lake was built back in the 1920s. The air temperature was a cool 58 with heavy rain and the water temperature was 72. The water was calm, a rarity for the last unofficial day of summer; the cool rainy weather has even sent the locals of Deep Creek Lake seeking shelter. As I drove to the state park, even the large end of season party at the Honi Honi was dampened with the rain. Hopefully the weather will improve later in the week; otherwise it is going to be the Soggy Bottom Stand Up Paddleboard Tour.The photos were provided by another friend from the days at Snowshoe and now at Wisp Resort, John McCracken. We tried to convince John to join us for the rest of the tour, but to no avail. 1 2
1. An encore careerStarting another career near retirement age is not an uncommon thing anymore as people are living longer. You have decades of experience in your field and there are those out there that can benefit greatly from your knowledge, or perhaps you might enjoy something in a new field. If you aren’t too keen on the idea of a nine to five again, consulting and freelance work are both great ways to keep a nice cash flow on your own schedule.2. Monetize a hobbyEveryone has something that they love doing, and now that you are retiring you’ll have even more time to do it. With all that time, suddenly you are making too much food, or growing too many vegetables and flowers, or perhaps you have made too many custom pieces in your workshop. There is no reason you couldn’t sell off the excess for a little extra money. Never let the fact that you enjoy something make you feel like you can’t earn some cash on the side for doing it, and never let the money make you stop loving it.3. Sell off assetsOne of the best things that you can do when you retire is downsize. Whether you plan to travel less or a lot more, chances are that you have a bunch of goods laying around that you aren’t going to need anymore. You may have thousands of dollars in collectibles or a second vehicle that you aren’t going to need. They aren’t serving a purpose in their material state, so why not sell them and turn them into cash?4. Buying and renting propertyThe United States real estate market has been an extremely safe investment given the current overall uncertain climate globally. Real Estate has always been a rather safe investment and if you have the existing capital it can be a great way to supplement retirement income. Buying a rental property for retirement income is not completely without risk, but it can pay off for many.5. Take a hard look at your investmentsThis isn’t very unconventional and shouldn’t just be done by retirees but is worth mention as too many get comfortable with their investments. Take some time to review all of your savings and investments and make adjustments as needed. You spent your whole life making money and saving, now you have to make sure your savings are making you money. Look at your investment portfolio for any poorly performing investments and reinvest them elsewhere. 56SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Tyler Atwell Web: www.cuinsight.com Details

“We see [the circular] as an attempt to silence the students’ movement,” he said.The BEM SI also demanded that the government evaluate the National Police for alleged violence against and repression of protesters, including students and activists.The police have been under fire for allegedly using excessive force against protestors and journalists during mass rallies last week after the House of Representatives passed the omnibus bill on job creation into law on Oct. 8.Read also: More journalists assaulted by police during Job Creation Law protests: AJI Thousands were apprehended in the nationwide rallies, and activists have accused the police of abusing protestors.Bagas added that the demonstrators were seeking a meeting with President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo.“We hope the President will come see us because the public has staged protests a number of times, but the government never listens,” he said.However, Jokowi was not in the Jakarta Presidential Palace during the protest on Friday. He was staying at Bogor Palace.“He is at the palace [in Bogor] to attend an internal agenda, receiving several guests and ministers,” Presidential Secretariat head Heru Budi Hartono told kompas.com on Friday morning.Read also: Muhammadiyah slams police for alleged brutality in handling jobs law protestsHeru maintained that Jokowi’s absence from Jakarta was not to avoid the protest, adding that the president liked to work in Bogor Palace as the weekend approached.“Usually, he is [in Bogor Palace] on Thursday and Friday,” he said.Jokowi sent a member of his special staff, Aminuddin Ma’ruf, to meet the protesters in front of Merdeka Palace at 3 p.m.“I will convey the BEM SI’s statement regarding the jobs law to the president,” he said.At the Kuningan Flyover, students reportedly burned tires in the middle of the road while delivering speeches. Traffic under the flyover was diverted by the police.The protestors dispersed as heavy rain hit the capital city at about 4:15 p.m. South Jakarta Police personnel escorted the students from Kuningan to their starting point in East Jakarta.The protesters at Merdeka Palace, however, withstood the rain for a while before it got heavier and prompted them to leave at 4:30 p.m.Before the students’ departure, a speaker read out their demands in front of Central Jakarta Police chief Sr. Comr. Heru Novianto. The students booed Jokowi for once again failing to meet the protesters and sending a representative instead.Earlier, Jakarta Police spokesperson Sr. Comr. Yusri Yunus said some 18,000 personnel from the police, the Indonesian Military (TNI) and the Jakarta Public Order Agency (Satpol PP) had been deployed in the capital city to beef up security during the student protest.Opposition to the jobs law continued in other regions on Friday as well, such as in Bogor regency and Sukabumi, West Java. In Bogor, members of a local labor group demanded that Bogor Regent Ade Yasin send a letter to Jokowi urging him to issue a regulation in lieu of law (Perppu) to rescind the omnibus law.Meanwhile, about 100 protesters, consisting of students, farmers and workers demonstrated in front of the Sukabumi Legislative Council building. A downpour drenched the protesters, but they continued to deliver speeches until two councilors, Maming Surita of the Democratic Party and Wawan Juanda of the Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) met with them in the rain.Students and workers have said they will continue taking to the streets until the omnibus law is revoked.“We will keep fighting back. The wave of demonstrations will continue,” Federation of Cigarette, Tobacco, Food and Beverage Workers Unions (FSP RTMM) deputy head Tugino said in a virtual discussion on Friday.Topics : Thousands of students from the National Association of University Student Executive Bodies (BEM SI) staged another round of protests on Friday to demand that President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo rescind the controversial Job Creation Law, as well as to convey their opposition to protest restrictions and alleged police brutality.The students, who were from 26 universities under the BEM SI, gathered at the Arjuna Wiwaha monument, better known as the Horse Statue, near the Presidential Palace in Central Jakarta at 1 p.m. Other groups of students gathered at the Kuningan Flyover in South Jakarta. Some students carried signs rejecting the law, such as “Vote of No Confidence”.Bagas Maroupindra, BEM SI coordinator for Greater Jakarta and Banten, said Friday’s protests continued the students’ fight against the contentious jobs law and expressed their objection to an Oct. 9 Education and Culture Ministry circular that called on university students not to take part in jobs law protests.

The Newcastle fans voiced their displeasure at both Pardew and owner Mike Ashley – who was present at the Liberty Stadium – regularly during an entertaining contest, with the visitors desperately short of confidence and still seeking their first win of the league campaign. Swansea had made their best start to a Premier League campaign but they had gone three games without a win and it showed as both sides took time to settle. An early spell of shadow boxing ended when Gabriel Obertan fired just wide and the chance seemed to spur Swansea into action at the other end. Bony played Ki Sung-yueng’s pass to Gylfi Sigurdsson and a simple one-two saw the Ivorian bear down on goal and slot home pass Tim Krul for his first goal since scoring for the Ivory Coast at the World Cup in Brazil. It was also Sigurdsson’s fifth assist of a productive Premier League season but from a Newcastle perspective their defence had been breached far too easily. Shelvey’s delicate chip cleared Krul’s crossbar following some slick Swans approach play and the hosts almost doubled their advantage after 38 minutes. Another free-flowing move had threatened to break down but Sigurdsson helped it onto Nathan Dyer and he beat his marker Paul Dummett with ease. Dyer’s cross found Bony but Krul produced an excellent save to divert his volley wide at the expense of a corner. Cisse was starting for the first time on Saturday since fracturing a patella in April and he repeated his two-goal show against Hull last month when he came on as a substitute to stun Garry Monk’s side. Swansea twice took the lead through Wilfried Bony and Wayne Routledge, but the Senegal striker took advantage of some slack home marking to score Newcastle’s first away goals in the top flight since March 1. Newcastle had barely functioned as an attacking force but two minutes before half-time Obertan got the better of Neil Taylor and Cisse stole across Ashley Williams at the near post to beat Lukasz Fabianski in the Swansea goal. Swansea responded immediately with Bony seeing a shot blocked by his skipper Williams before driving a fierce effort over, but Newcastle’s luck held only until five minutes into the second half. Sigurdsson held off Moussa Sissoko, perhaps too forcefully for Pardew’s liking, to slip a pass into Routledge’s path with Dummett playing him onside in the left-back position. Krul came rushing off his line but Routledge nonchalantly beat him with a delightful chip to restore Swansea’s lead. Newcastle were making little attacking headway and came close to conceding a third when Sigurdsson’s back heel found Bony and the Ivorian just failed to keep his chip under Krul’s bar. Bony was almost on the scoresheet again when he met Dyer’s centre sweetly and Krul pulled a save from right out of the top drawer. And that stop proved more important moments later when substitute Sammy Ameobi evaded the challenge of Federico Fernandez and crossed for Cisse to volley home from close range. Cisse almost completed his hat-trick with 10 minutes remaining when Emmanuel Riviere’s blocked shot fell to him inside the six-yard area but he couldn’t maintain his balance and the chance was lost. Papiss Cisse eased some of the pressure on under-fire Newcastle manager Alan Pardew as his second brace of the season secured a precious Barclays Premier League point as the Magpies drew 2-2 at Swansea.
