As the US stock markets extend an unprecedented rally in dark financial times, the FTSE 100 has been following a similar path. The main UK financial index has seen a 28% rise since the March market crash.While the index has rallied overall, how this will continue to play out is dividing speculators. The economy has taken an unprecedented hammering in recent months. Unemployment is rising and geopolitical tensions are escalating. This increases the likelihood of another stock market crash. However, continued government stimulus and oil prices stabilising boost the prospects of the stock market rally continuing. The European Central Bank pledged an additional €600bn in aid through a bond-buying programme yesterday. Meanwhile, oil prices began picking up as OPEC+ appeared likely to agree to further production cuts.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…During periods of international tension, defence becomes a key sector to watch. Arms and defence technology manufacturer BAE Systems (LSE:BA) is one such stock in this sector. Since the 2020 stock market crash, the BAE Systems share price has risen over 20%.BAE contract winsThe British multinational creates technology solutions for defence, aerospace and security markets. One such example would be its APKWS laser-guided rocket system. This week BAE showed the world how it is adapting and test-firing these rockets from a ground-based weapon system. Traditionally seen in aircraft, this technology will now provide ground forces with the ability to fire laser-guided rockets with precision.In May, BAE won a £350m contract from the UK Ministry of Defence. It also completed the acquisition of its Airborne Tactical Radios business from Raytheon Technologies Corporation. Then this week it won a contract from Lockheed Martin to provide key autonomy and artificial intelligence capabilities for DARPA’s Squad X programme.However, it is not all good news. Although the BAE Systems share price looks appealing, as an investment, it poses an ethical dilemma. Anti-war campaigners are currently trying to persuade the Australian War Memorial not to renew its sponsorship arrangement with BAE Systems this month. This is because it generates billions of pounds annually from the Saudi military, which is heavily involved in the war in Yemen and the huge humanitarian catastrophe it has led to.Financial outlookThe group has a price-to-earnings ratio of 11, earnings per share are 46p and it has a targeted free cash flow generation of £3.5bn-£3.8bn for 2020 to 2022. The board postponed its dividend earlier in the pandemic and will reconsider it once the outlook is clearer.As a diversified company, BAE has room for growth. It is a leader in the international market for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and cybersecurity. It has made strategic acquisitions and has a considerable order backlog. Liquidity does not appear to pose a problem, and it has access to a £2bn revolving credit facility.With the world in chaos, I think government spending on defence is likely to increase. BAE employs 85,800 people in over 40 countries. It is a globally recognised conglomerate with prestigious clients in the Aerospace and Defence sector. While I have my doubts that a stock market rally will continue, I think BAE Systems is a stock worth investing in for the long-term.center_img Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Photo: Neil Vigers/ACNS[Anglican Communion News Service] See below for the official CommuniquéAnglican and Oriental Orthodox Church leaders who met at the historic Hampton Court, London, over the weekend shared not only prayer, worship and fellowship, but also their fears about the future of Christianity in the Middle East.Leading clergy and theologians from both Christian traditions met for the first Anglican-Oriental Orthodox International Commission in 12 years. They were there to engage in theological dialogue about important questions which have kept eastern and western churches separate for centuries, while at the same time to forge deeper bonds of faith and mutual support.The dialogue’s central topic was the Holy Spirit, but Christian persecution in countries across the Middle East was inevitably a key issue.Speaking at Saturday evening’s joint vespers hosted by the Orthodox Church of St. Augustine in Surrey, General Bishop Angaelos of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom said, “We gather to remember our brethren in Egypt, Syria, and throughout the Middle East, where many continue to suffer persecution for their faith. Some suffer even to the extent of losing their lives, yet their faithful witness in the Middle East is a blessing to the whole church, and to the whole world.”Church of England Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe Geoffrey Rowell added, “We have reflected on our common faith in Christ, and how we speak of Him and live in Him by the life-giving work of God’s Holy Spirit. We have done that in the deep awareness of the suffering of fellow Christians in Syria, in Egypt, and in many other places. The God whom we worship and adore is the One who comes down to the lowest part of our need.”Archbishop Aphrem Karim of the Syrian Orthodox Church said, “A Latin American bishop told me, ‘If a church is not a suffering church it is not a real church’ … But Christians are also people of hope, and suffering in this world will not separate us from Christ.“What’s happening in Syria and the Middle East is the cost we have to pay for our faith. But the whole people of the Middle East, Christians and Muslims, are suffering at the hands of groups that believe they act on behalf of God. We pray for these perpetrators that they may be touched by God’s love, that they may change and see God’s face in every human being around them.”He expressed concern at the falling numbers of Christians in the Middle East; “Iraq is another country where Christians are reduced. Out of a million and a half, less than half a million remain. In Egypt, on one day some 80 churches were attacked and people were killed. We know about Turkey where Christians [totaled] 40 to 50 percent of the population less than 100 years ago. There are [now] perhaps half of one percent.”Bishop Angaelos added, “There are many who are suffering for their faith. They suffer persecution. Some suffer even to the extent of losing their lives. Yet their faithful witness in the Middle East is a blessing to the whole church, and to the whole world. The birthplace of Christianity is still a place in which Christians are witnessing every day and sometimes at great cost.”In the midst of such sadness and concern there was also joy and hope that believers from different traditions had so much to share with one another.The Rt. Rev. Christopher Hill, the Church of England bishop of Guildford, said, “When Christians welcome each other it is a mutual welcome because God in Christ welcomes us.“In my chapel, by the door, there is a place of water, to remind that me that I am a baptized Christian. Over that place there is a Coptic Orthodox icon…  In God in Christ we are mutually welcomed by God the lover of humankind.”Bishop Angaelos echoed these ecumenical sentiments, “We are blessed to have brothers and sisters in Christ who are also sharing in our vision. There are differences, but the things we have in common are far greater, and far more important.  …We are faithful to the one flock, one Shepherd.”On Sunday, Oct. 6, the commission members welcomed Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby to the Chapel Royal, Hampton Court, for its Feast of Dedication. Welby said there was “an urgency and an importance” to the commission’s meeting not least because of the need for its members to seek “God’s powerful hand” to deliver their brothers and sisters from persecution.______CommuniquéThe Anglican-Oriental Orthodox International Commission has held its second meeting 3-7 October 2013 at St Columba’s House, Woking, England. Our Churches rejoice at the resumption of this important dialogue after ten years.We greatly appreciate the hospitality offered by the Anglican Communion, the Church of England, and the Diocese of Guildford.During the course of its meeting the Commission shared in daily prayer from the various traditions represented, and considered and discussed the following papers:The Procession of the Holy Spirit (Coptic Orthodox presentation)The Filioque in the Anglican TraditionThe Filioque and Anglican ActionThe Filioque and the Armenian Orthodox TraditionThe Draft Agreed Statement on Christology (2002) and its receptionThe context in which we have met has been one of continuing concern for the countries in the Middle East in particular, as well as Kenya, Pakistan and Nigeria. Participants felt that Rev 1.9 spoke powerfully to us. ‘I, John, your brother, who share with you in Jesus, persecution and the kingdom and the patient endurance, was on the island called Patmos, because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.’On Saturday 5 October we worshipped in the Coptic Orthodox Church of St Augustine, Gomshall, Surrey. Through this act of worship the members of the Commission, together with local church members, prayed and expressed solidarity with the peoples at the heart of suffering.At the service, Bishop Angaelos said, ‘We gather to remember our brethren in Egypt, Syria, and throughout the Middle East, where many continue to suffer persecution for their Faith. Some suffer even to the extent of losing their lives, yet their faithful witness in the Middle East is a blessing to the whole Church, and to the whole world.’Bishop Geoffrey Rowell added, ‘We have reflected on our common faith in Christ, and how we speak of Him, and live in Him, by the life-giving work of God’s Holy Spirit. We have done that in the deep awareness of the suffering of fellow Christians in Syria, in Egypt, and in many other places. The God whom we worship and adore is the One who comes down to the lowest part of our need.’On Sunday 6 October members of the Commission were welcomed to the Eucharist at The Chapel Royal, Hampton Court, for its Feast of Dedication, and were joined by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Revd Justin Welby. In greeting them Archbishop Justin said, ‘We meet with an urgency and importance to meeting, which is together to seek God’s powerful hand to deliver the people of Christ, who seek only to serve him and serve their people.’ We express our thanks for his presence with us and his encouragement for the work of this dialogue. We are also deeply grateful to his predecessor Dr Rowan Williams for his significant work in reviving this dialogue.The Commission shares the joy of the Coptic Orthodox Church at the enthronement of its new Pope and Patriarch, His Holiness Pope Tawadros II, and of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahido Church at the enthronement of its new Patriarch, His Holiness Abune Matthias I.The third meeting of the Commission is planned to take place in Cairo, Egypt, in October 2014, hosted by the Coptic Orthodox Church, addressing the themes of ecclesiology, primacy and collegiality, and pastoral co-operation.At the conclusion of the dialogue the Commission thanked God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, for the unity that they experienced and shared.Members of the Commission:AnglicanThe Rt Revd Dr Geoffrey Rowell (Co-Chair)The Church of EnglandThe Most Revd Dr Michael JacksonThe Church of IrelandThe Revd Canon Harold NahabedianThe Anglican Church of CanadaThe Rt Revd Duleep de ChickeraThe Church of CeylonThe Revd Canon Dr William TaylorThe Church of EnglandThe Very Revd Dr Samy ShehataThe Episcopal Church of Jerusalem and the Middle EastThe Rt Revd Jonathan GoodallThe Church of EnglandThe Rt Revd Clive HandfordThe Church of England (Unable to attend the meeting)The Revd Canon Alyson Barnett-Cowan (Co-Secretary)Anglican Communion OfficeMr Neil Vigers (Administrator)Anglican Communion OfficeOriental OrthodoxCoptic Orthodox Church of AlexandriaHis Eminence Metropolitan Bishoy (Co-Chair)Egypt (Unable to attend the meeting)His Grace Bishop Angaelos (Acting Co-Secretary)EnglandArmenian Apostolic Orthodox Church – Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, ArmeniaHis Eminence Archbishop Hovnan DerderianUSAThe Very Revd Archimandrite Shahe AnanyanArmeniaArmenian Apostolic Orthodox Church – Holy See of Cilicia, Antelias – LebanonHis Eminence Archbishop Nareg Alemezian (Acting Co-Chair)LebanonHis Grace Bishop Shahe PanossianKuwaitEthiopian Orthodox Tewahido ChurchHis Grace Archbishop Abba GabrielEthiopiaHis Grace Archbishop Abba YacobSouth AfricaMalankara Orthodox Syrian ChurchThe Revd Fr Dr KM GeorgeIndia (Unable to attend the meeting)Syrian Orthodox Church of AntiochHis Eminence Archbishop Mor Cyril Aphrem KarimUSAHis Eminence Archbishop Mor Gregorios JosephIndia (Unable to attend the meeting) This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector Martinsville, VA Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Featured Jobs & Calls Submit a Press Release Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Youth Minister Lorton, VA TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector Belleville, IL Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Tampa, FL Rector Bath, NC Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Anglican, Oriental Orthodox leaders lament Christian persecution Anglican Communion, Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

P-House is located in Girona (Spain) and consists of a single building with four winds; its location in the upper part of the plot allows its inhabitants to enjoy privileged views. The building combines contemporary design with the criteria of a very low-energy consumption building (NZEB), and its high-energy efficiency has been certified by the German Passivhaus standard.Save this picture!© Pol ViladomsSave this picture!© Pol ViladomsThe building is organized on three floors. The basement and ground floor are made of a concrete structure and are the base on which the top floor of the building is built, all of which is made of wood. This same materialization is externalized and gives body to the façades, in a play that seeks to invert the colours of both materials. On the one hand, through the use of brown pigments in the concrete and, on the other, through a treatment of the wood that tries to simulate the ageing of the material. This also makes it possible to reduce maintenance costs. Save this picture!© Pol ViladomsSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Pol ViladomsLayout. The ground floor houses the communal areas –an open space without divisions whose intention is to capture as much natural light as possible– while promoting visual dialogue between all the spaces that make up this floor. The two levels of this floor, besides differentiating the different spaces of this environment, allow the heights to be worked in a dynamic, giving each space its singularity. This play of heights, which is also present in the cascading staircase that links the two floors of the building, extends outwards to the porch, where its double height accentuates the verticality of this space, creating a transition between inside and outside. Save this picture!© Pol ViladomsThe interior-exterior relationship was an essential theme and which it was sought to enhance through the creation of exterior spaces attached to each interior space, such as the porch, the balconies or the various terraces that circumscribe the entire building. The bedrooms are organized on the upper floor of the building; their interiors are mostly clad in wood with a white glaze, the same tone as the other materials, in an attempt to generate a lightness that suits the soothing character of these spaces. Here too, all the rooms have their own corresponding outdoor space. Save this picture!© Pol ViladomsPassive strategies. From the very first sketches, elementary concerns in passive house construction, such as solar orientation or the high compactness of the building, have been considered. The main openings face south and the north façade contains hardly any windows. In this way, maximum solar radiation can be captured in winter to passively heat the interior. Save this picture!© Pol ViladomsSave this picture!© Pol ViladomsThe building does not have a traditional climate system and is air-conditioned solely through Zehnder ComfoAir 550 ERV Luxe enthalpy cross-counterflow heat exchanger, which, in addition to air-conditioning the house, provides clean and healthy air inside the building. According to the latest calculations, the building has an annual heating demand of 9 kWh/m2 and a cooling demand of 1 kWh/m2. The construction of the P-House aims to be an alternative to traditional construction methods, which are much more harmful to the environment and much more costly for its users. Save this picture!© Pol ViladomsProject gallerySee allShow lessEngineered Timber Helps Indigenous Architecture in North America to Emphasize Resili…ArticlesThe Straw Pavilion / MIA Design StudioSelected Projects Share Daniel Tigges (Tigges Architekt) y Micheel Wassouf (Energiehaus) Save this picture!© Pol Viladoms+ 22Curated by Paula Pintos Share ArchDaily Area:  472 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project P-House / Tigges Architekt + Energiehaus “COPY” CopyHouses, Decoration & Ornament•Girona, Spain CopyAbout this officeTigges ArchitektOfficeFollowEnergiehausOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDecoration & OrnamentGironaOn FacebookSpainPublished on April 26, 2021Cite: “P-House / Tigges Architekt + Energiehaus” 26 Apr 2021.

Voting, self-determination and social change

first_imgBelow is a slightly edited talk by Monica Moorehead at the Workers World Party webinar on Sept. 3 on “Save the people’s post office.”Voter suppression is an issue I have both personal and political knowledge of. I was born and raised under segregation in Alabama. Black and white activists were beaten, jailed, water-hosed and lynched to insure this basic democratic right, which was both won during and lost after Reconstruction post-Civil War. It is a right that most whites have had since 1920, when mainly white women won the right to vote.Monica MooreheadWhen the Voting Rights Act was passed in 1965, I saw firsthand as an adolescent this right guaranteed to my mom at age 39, her mother at age 65 and her grandmother at age 85. This was won through blood, sweat and tears and is still dearly cherished today by the most oppressed.Despite the fact there is no fundamental class difference between candidates from either big business, pro-war capitalist party, Republican or Democrat, this doesn’t diminish the duty of revolutionary socialists to defend any bourgeois democratic right that whites have been privileged to have — like the right to vote — if we hope to build class unity for a socialist future.Voting is tied to the right to self-determination. The right to vote is more than pulling a lever every four years. During Reconstruction, newly freed Black people could, for the first time, have political representation in state legislatures in the Deep South, establishing basic services like education. The counterrevolutionary defeat of this radical period ushered in a period of white supremacy in the forms of semi-slavery, repressive penal codes, the KKK, Jim Crow and — yes — voter suppression.Voter suppression affects millionsThe social impact of voter suppression is still felt today, in so many ways, and not just for Black people. For instance, in 2013 WW printed an article by Ben Carroll on restrictions on voting rights in North Carolina, known for its notorious “right to work” — meaning the right to nonunion labor laws for workers. Here is a brief summary from this article:“North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory signed into law on Aug. 12 a sweeping anti-voting rights bill that attacks the basic democratic rights of people of color, youth and other members of the working class.“As voter ID bills sponsored by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) make their way through many state legislatures, the recently signed bill in N.C. has earned the distinction as the most severe voter suppression law yet passed in the U.S.“In a blow to young voters, it does away with preregistration of 16- and 17-year-olds and invalidates school IDs as a valid form of identification. Additionally, it empowers vigilante poll observers to challenge other voters’ eligibility.“Many of the provisions of the bill attack measures, such as Sunday voting, same-day registration and the early voting period, which have been utilized overwhelmingly by Black, low-income and elderly voters.”Members of the Disability Rights Caucus of Workers World Party wrote of an attempted attack on the Voter Accessibility for the Elderly and Handicapped Act of 1984, when a Georgia County Board of Elections proposed to close seven out of nine accessible polling places. While this proposal was defeated, it is important to note that rural Randolph County in 2018 was 61% African American with one of the seven precincts being 95% Black, with no public transportation.Millions of disenfranchised people in the U.S. have been denied the right to vote: Black people, undocumented migrants also denied the right to health care and drivers’ licenses for work, prisoners and former prisoners — many of whom have lost this right forever due to incarceration, young people and others. These are millions of people who need class solidarity, not to be lectured on the limitations of voting, especially with white-supremacist Trump trying to close down post offices in primary communities of color, to squash voting rights.‘Barometer of progressive mass sentiment’Our 2016 election campaign statement emphasized — when so many young people gravitated to the Bernie Sanders campaign — and much remains true four years later: “A capitalist election can be a barometer of progressive mass sentiment, whether voters reject a war-making president or vote in a person of color.”However, a barometer is not an instrument by which to effect change; it only measures change. To really make change happen, you need more than a barometer. You need an instrument of struggle.After the massive Civil Rights and Black Liberation movements defeated segregation, Black people began entering the electoral arena. Many times a majority of voters, including some whites as well as people of color, have chosen African Americans to represent them in various public offices, finally reaching as high as the president of the United States. This is certainly a step forward from the days of open segregation in the South and the refusal of the Northern establishment to allow more than a token few Black people into political office.Beyond bourgeois electionsYet even in cities that have had Black elected officials — like Detroit, Baltimore, Cleveland, Flint and Newark — racism continues and even deepens in housing, jobs, wages, education, rates of police murders and incarceration, etc. These cities struggle just to provide the most basic services, while the banks and real estate interests profit off the people’s misery.Even as political concessions have been made to mass struggles for democratic reform, the obscene gap between rich and poor has widened. That gap also intensifies national oppression, as the poorest are disproportionately people of color.New movements are gaining strength outside the electoral arena — especially the militant movement against police murders. Workers World Party sees the pressing need for a working-class, revolutionary socialist program that will endure after the elections are over, regardless of who wins office. We need a movement to not only reform or soften capitalism, but get rid of it.Socialism is not just capitalism with government controls; it is an entirely opposite social system. It is based on the working class taking power and liberating the means of production from the stranglehold of capitalist ownership, so economic life can be planned to meet human needs, not to profit a few.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Those detained included all of the FNJ leadership – president Bishnu Nisthuri (photo), vice-president Shiva Gaule, general secretary Mahendra Bista and secretary Balaram Baniya – and many other leading FNJ members such as Surya Thapa, Narayan Amrit, Purnat Basnet and Ramji Dahal.

Outrage at appeal court’s decision to uphold newspaper editor’s prison sentence

The appeal court also maintained a ban on his two satirical weeklies and a fine of 20,000 dirhams (about 2,000 euros). Lmrabet started a hunger strike since 6 May.”We are appalled and deeply outraged by this verdict,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said, accusing the Moroccan authorities of displaying ” a degree of stubbornness that could prove to be criminal.” He pointed out that Lmrabet was extremely weak as a result of his hunger strike and he warned that if anything happens to the journalist, ” the Moroccan authorities will bear the full responsibility.” Ménard described today’s court decision as “a step backwards from democracy and freedom” and contrasted it with the attempts of King Mohammed’s public relations advisers to play up the regime’s modernity. “This regime is clearly incapable of tolerating the least criticism,” he said.Ménard urged the countries of Europe to remind Morocco of the human rights undertakings it made when it signed association agreements with Europe. He also called for a more determined effort by the French authorities to make their voice heard.Lmrabet is Reporters Without Borders’ correspondent in Morocco as well as being the owner and editor of the French-language Demain Magazine and its Arabic-language version Douman. He has been in prison since 21 May when a court in Rabat convicted him of “insulting the person of the king”, “offence against territorial integrity” and “offence against the monarchy,” and sentenced him to four years in prison. He was taken from the courtroom to a prison cell. The appeal court ordered that he remain in custody on 5 June, when the first hearing in his appeal was held.When he began his hunger strike on 6 May, Lmrabet said he was acting to defend his rights, to put an end to repeated acts of intimidation against his printer and other printers who would otherwise be ready to print his weeklies, and in order to be able to enjoy the right to freedom of movement. On 26 May, at the end of his third week on hunger strike, he was rushed from prison to Avicenne hospital in Rabat.

Limerick children waiting two years for autism assessments

first_imgNewsHealthLimerick children waiting two years for autism assessmentsBy Editor – November 11, 2017 2911 Email WhatsApp Twitter Previous articleLimerick family resource centre marks 30 yearsNext articleAstronaut Chris ends Limerick conference on a high Editor Boy taking ASD testCHILDREN in Limerick City are waiting up to two years for an assessment to determine whether they are on the autism spectrum or have other difficulties.Parents enquiring recently about an estimated length of wait for an assessment at the Blackberry Park Centre in Ballykeefe received a letter stating that as one of the psychologists is on maternity leave and no funding has been provided for cover, no projected date for assessment is possible.The letter advises that a list of psychologists accepted by the HSE is available for parents who wish to have assessments done privately.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Limerick Metropolitan District councillor, John Costelloe said that he has had numerous requests for help from parents “who are waiting between 18 months and two years for an assessment.“This is not good enough and far too long in terms of the life of a young child and a worried family,” he told the Limerick Post.The Sinn Fein City North councillor tabled a motion at last week’s City Council meeting calling on the local authority to write to Health Minister Simon Harris and call on him to address the inadequate staffing issue.“It costs upwards of €800 to get a private assessment done and people can’t afford that. Without that paperwork, families can’t begin to apply for supports for their children who need them. It even goes as far as affecting people’s housing applications. An assessment that a child has particular needs can help fast-track a housing application but without it, there’s nothing applicants can do,” he explained.Limerick City North Sinn Féin councillor John CostelloeA HSE spokesperson said: “There are a number of teams like Blackberry Park in Limerick and a number of other services apart from disability which have HSE psychologists.“Blackberry Park is a School Age Disability Team and is part of the wider Mid West School Age Disability Services. The Team provides a service to children with special needs in 25 mainstream schools and one special school in Limerick city.“The Team currently has 372 children on its caseload and has an allocated resource of 1.5 psychologists. Both these posts are currently filled.  There is a waiting list in this team, as well as nationally, for ASD assessments.“Currently, there are 46 children awaiting ASD assessments. The HSE Mid West continues to make every effort to address these waiting lists and reduce the waiting times for families.
