Print WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Facebook TAGSAdapt HouseDomestic abusefeaturedlimerick Twitter by Bernie [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “When I left him, I had to apologise to my kids for bringing them up in a place where their mother lived in terror. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life”.Those are the words of Limerick City woman, Deirdre, who left and abusive marriage after 25 years of being at the mercy of her husband’s absolute control and violent mood swings.“I never thought I was in an abusive relationship because he never laid a finger on me, Yet now I know that’s exactly what it was.I lived in fear of how he would be when he came through the door for all those years”.Deirdre was sharing her experience of escaping abuse during the international 16 days of opposition to violence against women.When Deirdre married, she had no idea what was ahead.“The first time I saw him carry on the way he did for most of our marriage was after our second child was born. He was hammering at something on the landing. It was late at night and a neighbour came in and asked me to ask him to stop the noise.“When I did, he threw the hammer at me from the top of the stairs”.“He was depressed and he would stay in bed for most of the day. But I had to listen for his every move and have a cup of tea ready, at drinkable temperature, when he finally came down the stairs. If it wasn’t how he liked it, he would throw it at me”.Deirdre says she lost her friends as she could never predict whether her husband would be gracious or insulting to them if they called. “I had no social life. He wanted to know where I was every minute of every day. If I went anywhere, he would call my mobile constantly and it had better be switched on”.A combination of depression and drink added fuel to her husband’s fire and the final straw came when their teenage son walked out of the house in the middle of the night after being roused by “roaring and shouting. He demanded we go after him and when we found my son, he hit him. That was the end for me. I realised that this wasn’t normal.”.Deirdre planned to use money she had stashed to accommodate her husband’s drinking to get away. She initially went to another part of the country and then was put in touch with Adapt services in Limerick.“I stayed with them for a few months and I can’t say enough about the support they gave me. When I wanted to talk, they were there. When I couldn’t talk about it, they were there too”.Deirdre has since moved back into the marital home that her husband left and has found a job.“I want women to know that just because they don’t have physical bruises doesn’t mean that they are not suffering abuse. But there is support and there is escape”, she said.

IAM Sold has relocated to larger office premises in Gosforth, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, as part of its growth plans and the expansion of the Intelligent Services Group (ISG) of businesses. The Group, which includes IAM Sold, The Conveyancing Partnership (TCP) and Medway Law, employs 130 people, and is planning to increase to 200 employees by the end of 2018.The 10,000 square foot office, in the Regent Centre business park, is a modern and flexible office space with an open plan layout, meeting rooms, breakout areas and a canteen. A key part of the design was to include a “green screen studio” which can be used for virtual auctions, a flourishing part of the IAM Sold business.Jamie Cooke, Managing Director of IAM Sold, said, “We’re delighted to be in the new space and grateful to all staff for helping us ensure the move was seamless.“It very much reflects where we are as a business, and allows us to build upon additional services, such as virtual auctions which will form a huge part of our business as we continue to increase our network of partners.”IAM Sold Newcastle IAM Sold Gosforth iam-sold October 4, 2017The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Of that 78 percent, 23 percent call converting their point of sale (POS) terminals “unnecessary.” This is perhaps explained by low average transaction values.Besides the high number saying EMV is unnecessary — 34 percent said they don’t have time to research and implement EMV. Thirty-three percent said it’s too expensive to adopt, and 10 percent were unaware of EMV despite substantial levels of EMV publicity.POS systems review site Software Advice surveyed SMBs to evaluate EMV readiness. Among the report’s findings, 64 percent of single-store retailers do not have a POS system in place, and just 22 percent of SMB retailers were prepared to meet October’s EMV deadline. Lack of education also plays a role here, as 25 percent of retailers were unaware of the changes to the standards. continue reading »
