Indians queue for liquor as capital eases some coronavirus curbs

first_imgHundreds of people queued outside liquor stores in New Delhi on Monday as the Indian capital began easing some curbs after a 40-day lockdown against the coronavirus, while some offices resumed work with fewer staff and traffic trickled into the streets.The nationwide lockdown, among the world’s strictest, is being relaxed in some areas with fewer infections, although it will stay until May 17, the government said last week. The measure was adopted on March 25 and extended twice.Many government cars were among the traffic on Delhi’s boulevards on Monday, while police at checkpoints peered into cars to ensure there were no more than two occupants. Everyone wore masks. Topics : By about 9:30 a.m., a line of more than 500 people had formed outside a liquor store in the capital’s eastern area of Kalyan Puri, before the shop was closed and police baton-charged the crowd to disperse it, a Reuters witness said.Police were asking some outlets to close in line with an order from excise authorities, said Ajay Kumar, a Delhi government official in charge of liquor stores.”We want to keep the shops open,” Kumar told Reuters, without elaborating.The easing could drive further infections in India, which has tallied more than 42,500 cases and 1,300 deaths in a steady rise, but some state governments want economic activity to resume as revenue dwindles and millions struggle without income.”We have to get prepared to live alongside corona, we have to get used to it,” Delhi’s chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal, told a Sunday briefing, outlining steps to seal off 97 infection hotspots while opening up the rest of the city of 20 million.In neighboring Pakistan, the number of confirmed cases neared 20,000, with 462 deaths. Authorities in Sri Lanka and Nepal reported 718 and 75 cases respectively.last_img read more

Gov. Wolf, Lt. Gov. Fetterman Hit PA Ice Cream Trail

first_imgGov. Wolf, Lt. Gov. Fetterman Hit PA Ice Cream Trail SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf and Lt. Gov. John Fetterman dropped in at Urban Churn, Harrisburg, to celebrate Pennsylvania dairy and have their 2019 Pennsylvania “Pursue Your Scoops” Ice Cream Trail passports stamped.“The Pennsylvania Pursue Your Scoops Ice Cream Trail provides an opportunity for families to connect with the incredibly important family-owned farms and small creameries that make up Pennsylvania’s dairy industry,” said Gov. Wolf. “This trail is just one way I’m supporting Pennsylvania farmers. I’m committed to continuing to invest in our agriculture industry, especially as farmers explore new ways to add value to products, including processing milk into ice cream.”Gov. Wolf recently signed the PA Farm Bill, which, among other investments, allocates $5 million in the 2019-20 budget to Pennsylvania’s Dairy Investment Program to allow farmers to pursue new value-added processing projects.“The ‘Scoops’ trail is a delicious way to celebrate our dairy farmers and creameries,” said Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman. “I hope all Pennsylvanians will join us this summer in picking up a passport and enjoying a treat.”The Pennsylvania “Pursue Your Scoops” Ice Cream Trail was developed last year as a joint effort between the Pennsylvania Tourism Office and the Department of Agriculture to boost Pennsylvania’s dairy industry by capitalizing on agritourism. Visitors to the trail can download a passport or pick one up at any stop and have it stamped at a mix of participating on-farm creameries and ice cream shops that support Pennsylvania milk processors and local dairy farmers. The trail is divided into three regional segments per passport. Visitors with at least five stamps on one passport by Sept. 2, 2019, receive a “Pursue Your Scoops” t-shirt, while a fully stamped passport earns a “Pursue Your Scoops” ice cream bowl.Urban Churn is one of 32 creameries participating in this year’s trail, which has tripled in size since its creation. The business, which opened its storefront on Third Street in Harrisburg earlier this year, make small batches of ice cream with unique and classic flavors.“The ice cream trail has been a huge success for us. The program has introduced our new store to many folks from near and far,” said Adam Brackbill, Urban Churn owner. “It has helped us start off strong and develop new regulars. We’re very thankful to be a part of the trail, allowing us to serve homemade and unique ice cream made from local dairy.”center_img July 18, 2019last_img read more

PROTEST TO BE HELD AS COUNCILLORS MEET IRISH WATER

first_imgCan’t Pay Won’t Pay will place a protest picket outside Donegal County Council’s office in Lifford on Monday when councillors will meet with representatives of Irish Water.Cllr Mac Giolla EasbuigSpokesperson Micheál Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig wants other councillors to join the protest instead of meeting with irish Water.He said, “As a councillor I see no value in meeting with Irish Water. I have been calling on people not to engage with Irish Water which includes not registering for their charges and not paying. Consistent with this, I will not be meeting with Irish Water in Lifford. This is a body which has wasted enormous resources in a chaotic, unnecessary and unwanted water meter installation programme instead of getting to grips with the real problems and waste in our public water supply. It should be disbanded and the council should resume responsibility in this area.” “I was heavily criticised by some councillors for not attending a previous meeting with Irish Water in Carrick-on-Shannon back in October. I said then it would be a complete waste of time. After the meeting those councillors who had been critical of me publicly admitted the meeting had been pointless. I would ask those councillors to now join with us on the protest rather than sitting down with Irish Water.”The public are invited to join the protest picket outside the Council offices at 10am on Monday.“Come along and let Irish Water know that we will not be registering with them, that we do not want their water meters and most importantly of all, we will not pay their charges,” said Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig.PROTEST TO BE HELD AS COUNCILLORS MEET IRISH WATER was last modified: January 23rd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal County CouncilIrish WaterprotestPubliclast_img read more
