TOO MANY VIOLATORS: Traffic fines projected at over half a million pesos

first_imgThe most common traffic violationswere illegal parking, road obstruction, disregarding traffic signs, jaywalking,and counter-flowing, he revealed. The objective is not to rake in hugefines but to curb traffic violations by instilling road discipline, stressedPSTMO head Jeck Conlu. ILOILO City – Fines from apprehendedtraffic violators at the Sen. Benigno Aquino Jr. Avenue in Mandurriao districtare projected to exceed half a million pesos. The Public Safety andTransportation Management Office (PSTMO) of the city government, however, isnot happy. As of Feb. 16, 2,438 apprehensionswere made for various traffic violations along the 14-kilometer avenue, a pilottraffic discipline zone (TDZ) in the city where all traffic regulations areenforced strictly. Having a traffic discipline zone isone of the moves of the city government to ease traffic congestion and          curb road accidents. But itslong-term plan is to have an intelligent traffic system (ITS) that former mayorJed Patrick Mabilog proposed in 2017. The Philippine National Police,Highway Patrol Group and Land Transportation Office are helping the PSTMO. These include the speed limitordinance, the ordinance against modified mufflers, points where to load andunload passengers, the law on the use of helmets and other body protectivegears by motorcycle riders and the maximum number of back riders allowed, thelaw on the use of seatbelts, the law on the non-use of cellphones while drivingand clearing of windshields from gadgets that directly distract the driver’sline of sight, among others. Conlu, however, clarified that thegoal of the TDZ is the promotion of road discipline among drivers andpedestrians and not raising money. The avenue, also known as theDiversion Road, as TDZ started on Jan. 16 “Given ‘ni iya that on the first one month of TDZ implementation mataas ang apprehension kay gina enforce ta pa lang strictly ang mga trafficrules and regulations,” he explained. After the Sen. Benigno Aquino Jr.Avenue, next to be made a traffic discipline zone is McArthur Drive fromBarangay Tabuc Suba, Jaro district to Barangay Balantang. “The projected total amount ofpenalties, although some have been collected already, is P683,900,” said Conlu.center_img Like the Sen. Benigno Aquino Jr.Avenue, McArthur Drive is also “problemadopirmi sa traffic because of lack of discipline,” he explained. SPEED CHECK. A traffic enforcer checks the speed of these vehicles on Sen. Benigno Aquino Jr. Avenue, a traffic discipline zone in Mandurriao, Iloilo City. Drivers’ lack of discipline contributes to traffic congestion and causes vehicular accidents. PN PHOTO “TDZ will be successful kon mapanubo naton ang dakpanay,” hesaid. As proposed by Mabilog, the firstphase of the ITS would be on the Sen. Benigno Aquino Jr. Avenue because thishighway is prone to vehicular accidents due to overspeeding drivers. Phase II would be on the coastal road,Phase III on the McArthur Highway Drive going to the municipality of Leganes,Iloilo and Phase IV on the Circumferential Road going to Oton, Iloilo./PN “I want this scheme initially tried onthe Diversion Road para mapakita ngapwede maobra ini,” said Mayor Jerry Treñas. An ITS involves the use ofclosed-circuit television cameras capable of determining the speed of vehicles(if they are overspeeding) and of recording them. It would also entail theestablishment of a command/monitoring center. An ITS is projected to discouragedrivers from disregarding traffic rules and regulations. It would also help lawenforcers to easily identify and catch violators. What are the traffic rules andregulations being enforced? Traffic enforcers are armed with, amongothers, breath analyzers to catch those driving while under the influence ofalcohol and speed guns to catch drivers who are exceeding the speed limit. last_img read more

Medical Matters: How to treat Acne?

first_imgContinuing his popular Medical Matters column, this week Dr Ciaran Roarty of Scally McDaid Roarty Medical Practice talks about acne. Acne is a common problem mainly associated with the teenage years though it can affect young babies and older adults. It causes black, red or white spots on the face, neck, back and chest. It more commonly affects boys and most teenagers develop it to some degree. Blocked skin pores (which usually have hair growing out of them and release oil)  become infected with bacteria and this is usually the underlying problem with acne. Sometimes other conditions e.g. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome can also cause acne.Can anything make it worse?Covering acne with a lot of creams and makeup can exacerbate things as well as constantly touching your face with your hands (which can spread germs). Tight clothing, excessive sweating and certain medicines can also make things worse as well as picking or squeezing the spots. Poor hygiene does not cause acne and stress while not helping acne, is not a cause for it. Advice to people with acneWash twice a day with lukewarm water and an antiseptic wash. Do not use strong soaps and avoid abrasive cleansers with granules. Air dry your face. Your doctor can advise on various treatments which work really well for acne. Each individual is different however and your treatment may have to be tailored for you. They do take time to take effect. Your doctor may advise a topical gel or cream containing, for example, benzoyl peroxide. Other topical treatments that are prescribed are known as retinoids and your doctor will likely explain to you about any possible side effects and using sunblock. Topical antibiotics may be prescribed in combination with other treatments also. Antibiotic tablets work by killing germs that contribute to causing acne and are often prescribed along with a topical treatment. It takes time to work and it is important to tell your doctor if you intend becoming pregnant before commencing as some of the above treatments will not be advised. Certain contraceptive pills may help acne, while others can exacerbate it. Other more powerful tablets are also sometimes prescribed for more severe acne and they work by reducing the amount of oil made by your skin.  Any treatment takes up to 6 weeks for there to be any effect and may take up to 4 months to be most effective so you need to give it a chance to work. Ongoing topical treatments may be needed to keep spots at bay once the initial treatment has finished. Scars from acne can be treated by laser treatment, peeling treatments and collagen injections though these can be quite expensive. The above information is intended as advice only and should you have any concerns please contact your own Doctor. Dr Ciarán Roarty MB, BCh BAO MICGP DRCOG Grad. Cert. Obst.

Solar Installer Will Train Its Own Electricians

first_imgA New England solar installer with operations in three states faced a challenging shortage of licensed electricians in the region’s labor pool. So the solar contractor is opening its own training centers for electricians. ReVision Energy, with 225 employees and more than 7,000 solar installations to its credit, is now training 34 students in Maine and another 20 in Massachusetts, Mainebiz reported. The company has opened the Revision Energy Technical Center in Brentwood, New Hampshire, and will operate similar centers at its other New England locations. ReVision, a certified B Corporation, became employee-owned last year. It currently has offices in Portland and Liberty, Maine; Concord and Brentwood, New Hampshire; and North Andover, Massachusetts.RELATED ARTICLESTackling the Skilled Labor ShortageFine Homebuilding Will Award ScholarshipsConstruction Training Gets a Boost from Home DepotYoung Adults and the Construction Trades “What we’re trying to do is take control over the fact that licensed electricians are one of the biggest challenges in the renewable energy sector today,” ReVision co-founder Phil Coupe told Mainebiz. Nathan Poland, the company’s electrical coordinator (and the person who developed the training program), said the shortage of licensed electricians has become “critical.” No amount of advertising could attract the number of electricians the company needs, because they simply aren’t there. In the past, Poland said, helpers could become licensed through more traditional avenues, such as course work at a community college. But that might have required going to school at night, or taking time off from work to attend classes, and schools weren’t necessarily within easy commuting distance. Students enrolled in the ReVision Energy program are taught by licensed electricians who already work for the company. They get a mix of classroom and practical training on the way toward certification and are paid as apprentices while they are being trained. During times of the year when work slows, ReVision goes to a four-day work week, freeing Friday for hands-on instruction. Students can fulfill other course requirements on weekends or online. Ultimately, Revision plans to hire as many as 15 licensed electricians to beef up its staff, between two and five for each of its locations. A shortage of skilled workers is a national problem A lack of skilled labor is a problem affecting the construction industry in general, not just solar installers. A survey by the National Association of Home Builders earlier this year found that many specialties are in short supply. Shortages were listed for virtually every type of sub who works on a house — finish carpenters, concrete workers, painters, roofers, HVAC installers, and plumbers. A total of 83% of builders responding to the survey, for example, said there is “some shortage” or a “serious shortage” of rough carpenters. Electricians ranked near the middle of the pack — not in as critically short supply as, say, framing crews, but scarcer than flooring installers, HVAC workers, or excavators. Seventeen percent of the builders said there is a serious shortage of electricians; another 43% said there was some shortage. The consequence of a lack of skilled workers, NAHB said, are higher bids from subcontractors and higher wages paid to employees, higher home prices, and trouble completing projects on time. The shortfall is typically attributed to a mass exodus from the trades following the recession that began in 2008 and a lack of interest among many high school graduates to pursue that kind of career. Vocational training has been eliminated at some high schools. But, as The Washington Post points out, skilled tradesmen often earn above average wages. The median wage for electricians is $52,720, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics; the highest paid 10% of workers in that field earn more than $90,420. Skilled labor shortages were the impetus for the launch of Fine Homebuilding‘s #KeepCraftAlive program.last_img read more
