The smell of cold in the air knowing that Christmas is close, wrapping up warm to go for a walk, strolling around Dublin city with no particular destination just people watching and discovering new places, drinking hot chocolate/mulled wine/hot whiskey on a freezing day while warming your hands on the cup, spending time with friends and family, the smell of stew when you walk into a house, real hearth fires, hugs from people you love, hugs from anyone really…. We may have no money but look at what we do have, that kind of stuff is priceless to meIrish people shop online far less than the average EU internet user, according to a report this week. Ian explained why he bucks the trend: EVERY SATURDAY MORNING we take a look at all the best comments left on the site by our readers over the past seven days.This week there was a lot of talk about Budget 2014, Love/Hate, Madeleine McCann, crime in Dublin, and, as always, the weather.So here, in no particular order, are the standout comments from the week that was.The top 5 articles which received the most comments this week1. Poll: Should dole payments for those under 26 be reduced? (384 comments)2. Social welfare garda checks must not involve racial profiling – ICI (362 comments)3. Budget 2014: the key things to know from today’s announcement (298 comments)4. 22 things Irish people hate (243 comments)5. Madeleine McCann timeline has changed significantly (233 comments)Some of the best comments left on the site this weekFirst up, new dad Patrick McCarry shared the craziness of his first week as a parent, and commenter Tony Skillington shared his own experiences: I wish you and your wife every joy and happiness. The period of your lives that ye are entering is the most fulfilling, enriching and rewarding that ye will ever have experienced. From the first time she grabs your finger to the first hug she meaningly give you, your world has gone from me to us to her.Cherish every moment with her because in a blink of an eye she’ll be a teenager.. You’ll be relegated to chief money supplier, taxi driver, uncoolest yoke on the planet and killer of spiders in her bedroom…but sure do we as dads mind? Not at all..she’s the making of you both. She’ll always be your little girl…the one you’ll kill for to defend. Every step she takes you’ll be there to watch over her…again many congratulations.This is on an article from earlier in the year but a) the comment was only left during the week and b) it’s excellent, so we’ve included it. Asked to share memorable experiences from their J1, Cillian Bracken had this to say: We managed to convince a group of Canadians that we didn’t have Kanye West in Ireland and that although we were aware of his existence, the State had yet to sanction the release of his music.Pun of the week: James Doorley was quick off the mark with this uplifting (sorry) comment after half of the members of the Cabinet got stuck in a lift, minutes before the Budget was announced on Tuesday: Door on lift were stuck, they couldn’t “budge it”Ahead of all the doom and gloom that comes with the Budget, we asked readers one simple question: what makes you happy. You can see a lot of the best responses here, but some of our favourites included these from Alan Grouse, Maggie Cullagh and Roxy Blue.A well ironed shirt. Lightly toasted batch bread with butter and jam. My wife’s touch. A good pint of guinness. The sound of a sports car’s engine. The buzz of being in an airport before a trip. A good film. The combination of popcorn and minstrels. The rush in having a fish bite. The pump and endorphin rush of a good workout. Dealing with polite people. The sound, smell and spectacle of a thunder and lighting storm and candles. Symmetry. A newly stringed guitar. The sound of waves. A glass of midleton whiskey. The spontaneously hearing of a song you love. The minions. Clydesdales galloping. Pretty much every purchase I make is done online. Mobile phone? Samsung Galaxy Mega, bought from Hong Kong (no VAT to pay and sold at wholesale prices). Weekly shop? Tesco or Superquinn online. Magazine subscriptions? Buy them digital or send them to Parcel Motel and it’s still cheaper. Prescription drugs and vitamin supplements? Buy them on Amazon or at Boots online and send them to Parcel Motel (example, Buscopan is prescription-only in Ireland. In Boots it’s £3 a pack or 3 for £5!).It’s too expensive to ‘shop local’ in Ireland. Until it changes and we get a fair deal instead of being ripped, I continue to spend my income elsewhere. The future is digital, not bricks and mortar. booking flights for a trip and countdown to that trip when youve worked hard all year ! .exciting . Silverharp Harp had this popular addition to the thread about things to remind you that people are actually generous: Thanks to the Dublin Taxi driver and nice people in the park who brought my 4 year old son and Mother in Law to St. Vincents hospital (without charge) when she broke her wrist in the park. We were not in Dublin that afternoon and only got a txt message via a family member abroad…restored my faith in the civic attitude of Dubs.The 5 most popular comments this week1. First up this week is Matt, who got 2,076 thumbs up for his comment on the article about a 5-year-old Wexford girl with cerebral palsy whose wheelchair and specially-adapted car seat were taken when the family car was stolen from outside their home. Return the wheelchair to the child.2. Next up with 1,663 green thumbs is Helen Bobey, who was unimpressed with Welsh police who were forced to apologise for naming a dog poo issue “Operation Irish”. I’m Irish and I live in cardiff. I would love to know what exactly they meant by that3. In third place is Michale Coghlan with 1,239 thumbs up on the article about the man in the US who confessed to a rape and murder as he was about to be put to death in Florida, and whose execution did not go smoothly: I’m sure his last 15 minutes were less agonizing than hers…4. In fourth place with 1,227 green thumbs is Nessa Mooney for her comment about the cut in dole money for people aged 24 and under which was announced in Tuesday’s Budget:I am wondering seeing as its ok to pay less social welfare to under 25′s is there a reduced tax rate for that age group also, or should we be expected to pay the same tax rate but if we lose our jobs were not entitled to the same social welfare rate as those over 25.5. Last but not least, in fifth place is Fergal McDonagh with 1,137 thumbs up on the article about how a news website in New Zealand reported on an increase in STIs among Irish people involved in post-earthquake rebuilding: How’s about ‘new Zealand women spreading STDs to Irish men’ being their headline.

As officials of the three parties in the coalition government continue their efforts to sign off on an 11.5-billion-euro package of austerity measures, Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras is on Tuesday due to present the blueprint, and Greece’s plans for reforms and privatization, to his German counterpart Wolfgang Schaeuble in Berlin.The visit comes ahead of the scheduled arrival in Athens on Friday of representatives of Greece’s foreign creditors, the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund (known as the troika), whose subsequent review will determine whether or not Greece receives a vital 31.5-billion-euro tranche of rescue funding. A day before the crucial meeting, German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed support for Greece and other debt-ridden EU states while insisting that agreed-to reforms must be implemented. “In such a difficult phase, these countries have earned our solidarity,” Merkel said. But the German public appears unmoved, with only a quarter believing the country should remain in the eurozone, according to a poll published by the Financial Times.In his talks with Schaeuble, Stournaras is expected to repeat Greece’s argument — that a deep recession has hampered reforms — and to sound him out on a possible two-year extension to Greece’s fiscal adjustment period.Back in Athens, government officials are continuing talks on austerity. Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and his coalition partners — PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos and Democratic Left chief Fotis Kouvelis — are to meet on Wednesday or Thursday to rubber-stamp the blueprint before the arrival of troika chiefs on Friday, when European Council President Herman Van Rompuy is also due here.According to sources, troika officials are expected to reject planned cuts to defense and public administration, possibly calling for further pension cuts. Government officials are said to have expressed concern about the social impact of too much austerity. But an e-mail sent by the troika to Athens last week reportedly proposes further reductions to the minimum wage and to compensation given by employers in the private sector.As for proposed cuts to the so-called special salaries of certain categories of civil servants, these are to range from 6 percent to 35 percent, Kathimerini understands, with police getting the smallest cuts and judges the largest.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram
The proposal of a rubbish tip in Melbourne’s outer suburbs has received strong protest by members of the community. Andrew Antipas, Stop the Tip committee member, claims that this proposal made by Boral to the Melton City Council for the expansion of the Western Landfill at Deer Park, may be a cover for a bigger plan by the company. “We believe it’s part of a bigger plan for Melbourne’s waste management system,” Mr Antipas tells Neos Kosmos.If the proposal goes ahead, Boral plans to extend its existing tip by 179 million cubic metres of tipping space – equivalent to 105 MCGs of garbage, asbestos and contaminated soil piled 15 storeys above ground level.The Stop the Tip campaign – launched two months ago to protect the community from this expansion – says the tip would raise a number of detrimental issues for the people who live in the area, and would burden any plans to develop the area further. The campaign rallied on Tuesday to Stop the Tip. Mr Antipas says that if this application is approved, it would be a disaster for the community and would impact heavily on homes, jobs and economic opportunities in the area. “We’ve called the council on a couple of occasions and we aren’t getting any responses – they’ve basically gone into hiding,” he says.For more information, visit www.stopthetip.com.au or https://www.facebook.com/stopthetip Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram
Stay on target Police Arrest Dutch YouTubers for Trespassing Area 51 Site’Storm Area 51′ Creator Parts Ways With Alien-Themed Festival in Nevada It’s a strange time for American politics: There is an orange man in the White House who thinks climate change is a hoax and negative news is fake news.And there is a woman in Florida running for public office who believes she was abducted by aliens at age seven.Republican House candidate Bettina Rodriguez-Aguilera—most famous, perhaps, for last year’s revelation that she communicates telepathically with extraterrestrials—just won an endorsement from the Miami Herald to represent the 27th District of Florida in Congress.“We realize that Rodriguez-Aguilera is an unusual candidate,” the newspaper’s editorial board wrote on Sunday. “Last year, she told the Miami Herald—and several Spanish-language media outlets—that she believes in extraterrestrials.”In October, the Herald published a story recounting Rodriguez-Aguilera’s experience more than 50 years ago, when three “blond, big-bodied beings”—two females, one male—visited her from outer space.She described “going up” inside a spaceship, controlled with quartz rocks. (I imagine the scene began a little something like Pixar’s Gary Rydstrom projected.)“For years people, including presidents like Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter and astronauts have publicly claimed to have seen unidentified flying objects and scientists like Stephen Hawking and institutions like the Vatican have stated that there are billions of galaxies in the universe and we are probably not alone,” Rodriguez-Aguilera told the paper last year.“I personally am a Christian and have a strong belief in God,” she continued. “I join the majority of Americans who believe that there must be intelligent life in the billions of planets and galaxies in the universe.”Sure. But most people don’t believe ETs beamed into their home to make off with impressionable young children.“This is a non-issue,” Rodriguez-Aguilera told the Miami Herald board, which agrees.“Her bona fides as a former elected official, and now a businesswoman who spends time in other countries training women to run for office, are solid,” the paper said. “[She] is a strong candidate in the race with plausible conservative ideas.”Just not cosmic ones.Unsurprisingly, the contender’s official website makes no mention of her alien encounter.Are you one of the “majority of Americans” who believe in extraterrestrials? Former NASA astronaut Leland Melvin recently admitted he once saw “something organic/alien-like” floating outside the ISS.

A review of the Alaska Department of Corrections ordered by Gov. Bill Walker found outdated policies, cases of lax or informal consequences for apparent employee misconduct and mistrust between corrections staff and management.A report on the review’s findings also raised issues with the use of solitary confinement, a state law that allows for intoxicated individuals to be held in prison for protective custody and training for corrections employees.The review was prompted by several inmate deaths and conducted over 11 weeks by a special assistant to Walker, Dean Williams, and Joe Hanlon, a former FBI agent.The report states the review tries to acknowledge what’s going right but is focused on what’s wrong within the department to identify areas for improvement.
In this file photo taken on 16 October 2018, cows graze above Perrefitte, northern Switzerland, on 16 October 2018, days ahead of a nationwide vote on an initiative on cow horns. Photo: AFPSwiss voters on Sunday appeared set to reject a proposed constitutional amendment to preserve cow horns while approving a law that gives insurance companies broad leeway to spy on suspected welfare cheats.The third measure on the ballot, a rightwing proposal that would have given Swiss judges supremacy over world courts, was also headed for defeat, according to provisional results released by the GFS Bern polling and research firm.The poll is part of Switzerland’s famous direct democracy system, in which voters cast ballots on national issues four times a year.The cow horn initiative was launched by livestock farmer Armin Capaul, who captured widespread media attention after he secured the more than 100,000 signatures needed to force a vote in an upstart campaign that began with few resources and no political support.The proposal did not call for a ban on dehorning but sought a constitutional amendment that would have created incentives for farmers to let horns grow.Capaul said his campaign was inspired by conversations with his herd in him home of Perrefitte, a municipality in the heart of the Jura mountain range.Environmental and animal rights groups ultimately joined Capaul’s effort but it was opposed by the government, which argued farmers had to remain free to manage their livestock as they saw fit.Provisional results from GFS Bern said the proposal was likely to be rejected, with 54 per cent voting against.INSURANCE COMPANY SPIESVoters were, however, poised to approve a measure in which the government sought consent for legal revisions passed in March that outline the type surveillance insurance companies can use to expose potential fraudsters.Insurers in the wealthy Alpine nation had long spied on customers they suspected of making false claims, but that came to a stop following a 2016 ruling by the European Court of Human Rights, which said unregulated spying amounted to a violation of privacy.The government insists that surveillance is necessary to curb insurance fraud and in turn keep costs low for all.Sixty-seven percent of voters supported the revised law, according to GFS Bern’s provisional results.”What the Swiss wanted to show was that the social safety net is important, but that (for it to work) we all have to be absolutely responsible,” Benjamin Roduit of the centre-right Christian Democratic Party told public broadcaster RTS.Critics argued that the measures were hastily written under pressure from the insurance company lobby and do not explicitly prohibit serious, unjustified invasions of privacy.Legal analysts have noted that the law does not prohibit insurers, or the detectives they hire, from recording or filming someone who is on their private balcony or in their garden, provided those areas are visible from a public space.SUPREME LAWVoters also looked set to overwhelmingly reject the initiative dubbed “Swiss Law First,” which called for domestic law to be placed above international law.The rightwing, anti-migrant Swiss People’s Party (SVP) sought to portray the measure as essential for safeguarding national sovereignty.But the government and business groups were staunchly opposed, warning that hundreds of trade deals vital to the Swiss economy as well as the country’s reputation would have been threatened by a formal repudiation of international courts.”It is a huge defeat,” SVP vice president Celine Amaudruz told RTS after just 33 per cent of voters supported the proposal, according to provisional results.
The works on display talk about going down memory lane, the artists have chosen to represent a phase and moment from their lives.As Priyanka speaks about her art, ‘Every painting of mine is a moment which I’ve lived at some point in my life. A series of some significant moments together made this show happen. I’m playing them as a reel of my real life. These all together has created the person who I am today.’The works on display speak of a collective consciousness rather than individual approach to life. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’They are colourful threads that have been picked on the way of life, making a multi coloured ball of episodic memories. It’s about being- a child; a woman; an Indian; an artist; a philosopher and multiple roles. It talks about connection, continuity and growth. Similarly Gayatri speaks about her art works as, ‘visual shorthand for painting everyday-life’s mundane schedule. What makes them special is their directness and child-like simplicity, the works are narrative and allegorical; they tell the story not one that I wishes to narrate rather the one which the viewer or subject creates.’When: On till January18Where: India Habitat Center
A record-breaking heat wave in the U.K. has led to an unexpected bonanza in the field of archaeology. Experts are experiencing what was described in last week’s The Independent as “Gold-rush style excitement” over the development, in which the longest period of scorching weather since 1976 has exposed evidence of historic structures. Wales, in particular, is feeling the burn. The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW) has fired up its drones and planes in order to study the phenomenon, known simply as ‘crop marks.’ These are only visible from the air and discoveries so far relate to the Roman era, as well as periods that stretch for centuries in either direction.How are crop marks formed? It’s all to do with the eye-catching boost given to grass and greenery by long-buried architecture. Smithsonian magazine reports that “settlements were usually surrounded by fortifications or drainage ditches. Though the ditches were filled in during subsequent centuries, deep trenches remain beneath the surface of the ground. These trenches hold on to nutrients and moisture—and when the weather gets scorching, plants draw on the deeper topsoil for sustenance.”Photograph of Monks Ditch showing cropmarks of strip field systems. Photo by Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW)The highly noticeable result is that while surrounding grass withers under the relentless heat, things that grow over the remains of old forts and villas are suspiciously green and healthy-looking by comparison. This process has exposed new (but still very old) elements, in addition to reacquainting researchers with established landmarks.Archaeologists are used to painstaking work with slow progress and little chance of a reward, so to suddenly be deluged with a raft of resurrections is a surprise they’re relishing. A senior archaeological investigator for the RCAHMW, Louise Barker, explained to The Independent about her increased yet very welcome workload.Domgay Lane linear cropmarks. Photo by Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW)“We have found a Roman fortlet which will allow us to learn more about where the garrisons were and how the Roman conquest progressed. We have found an early medieval cemetery from maybe the eighth or ninth century, with the potential to tell us more about the period that used to be called the Dark Ages.”Cropmarks east of Butterhill Farm. Photo by Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW)But the goods aren’t only being delivered by airborne experts. One of the most remarkable things about the crop marks is the way they’ve inspired members of the public to get involved in the search.Drone footage of Badbury Rings, UK in 4KFinds are being announced on social media, as smartphones put power in the hands of amateur history hunters. A Bronze Age barrow was photographed in a local park, and a primary school brought history lessons to life by spotting the outlines of former air raid shelters on their playing field.Aerial photograph of Llwydfaen Medieval Township, site of buried medieval church, view of parched foundations and wider township. Photo by Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW)An article for Wired mentions the scorched earth as being “Like nature’s own Etch A Sketch.” In an interview for the site, Louise Barker chimes in on the artistic interpretation:“It’s like a painting that comes out into the fieldscapes. We’re seeing new things with all of these cropmarks – we probably haven’t seen anything like this since the 1970s, the last time there was a really, really dry summer like this.”Photograph of the south-western area of the Bryn-Crug Cropmark Complex. Photo by Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW)It’s hoped this rush of new information will tell us more about our ancient past. While organizations like the RCAHMW are enjoying the bonus the heavens have provided, they’re also aware the clock is ticking. Time waits for no man, something an archaeologist appreciates more than most.Read another story from us: There’s gold in them thar jeans: The truth behind the tale of a Chinese laundryman who got rich during the Gold Rush washing miners’ clothesA hurricane across the Atlantic threatens a downpour on British shores. Whether it happens or not, rain is inevitable. It takes a lot of heat to beat down grass, so the first chance it gets it will be quenching its thirst and sprouting back up. When that happens it’ll be curtains for crop marks until the next dry spell.Steve Palace is a writer, journalist and comedian from the UK.

News | October 20, 2010 FDA Approves Safeguard for Prostate Cancer Radiotherapy October 20, 2010 – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted 510(k) clearance for a system designed to automate the response to organ motion during prostate cancer radiotherapy. The Calypso System, by Calypso Medical Technologies, could help decrease the side effects associated with prostate radiotherapy, such as bowel and bladder incontinence and sexual dysfunction.The system, and its GPS for the Body technology, utilizes miniature implanted Beacon transponders to provide precise, continuous information on the location of the tumor during external beam radiation therapy. The real-time position information provided by the Calypso System allows physicians to deliver maximum radiation directly to the tumor while sparing the surrounding healthy tissues and organs from exposure. The new gating technology allows therapists to set motion thresholds which automatically signal radiation delivery to be stopped each time the targeted tissue moves outside the preset threshold. Previously, the therapist had to manually intervene and halt radiation delivery when healthy tissue was in danger of receiving unintended radiation. Dynamic Edge Gating Technology automates this function with an immediate signal to the linear accelerator so the radiation beam can be disabled or re-enabled in response to organ motion. Side effects occur when the tumor moves outside of the radiation field in response to normal physiologic processes such as digestion, coughing and breathing, as well as small movements by the patient. As a result, healthy tissue receives the intended radiation, and at the same time, the tumor fails to receive the fully prescribed radiation dose. “Calypso’s Dynamic Edge Gating Technology is the next step in addressing organ motion for our patients,” said Parag Parikh, M.D., assistant professor of radiation oncology at Washington University in St. Louis. “By automatically turning off the radiation beam if the target moves out of the planned location, this allows new ways to minimize the irradiation of healthy tissue, leading to better outcomes and quality of life for our patients.”In May 2010, Urology published a study that demonstrated that patients whose radiation therapy delivery was guided by the Calypso System experienced a significant decrease in the side effects associated with prostate radiation treatment.

unknown to take up arguably the toughest assignment in world cricket Upton was in a role that was new to cricket while childhood buddy Gary Kirsten was coaching a teamat any levelfor the first time Little did the two know that three-and-a-half years later they would return home to familiar climes having wooed about a billion hearts only to face up to another tough challenge They ended up guiding South Africa to the pinnacle in all three formats of the game In the process the duo earned a reputation of being the Midas menwho could magically transform teams Rewind to early 2008 Awaiting Upton and Kirsten on the other side of their flight was a dressing-room housing highly-decorated motley crew of egos And an Indian team smarting in the aftermath of a controversy-ridden tour to Australia that had almost brought diplomatic relations between the two countries to a standoff The previous foreign coach had been much disliked and malignedaccused of having created divisions in the team The

denial of their choking troubles It was an assignment that must have felt closer to heart for Kirsten and Upton But they returned home still strangers in a setup where previous coaches much similar to the Indian conundrum had never gotten a free reign at the top The similarities involved with their tasks at hand at the time of taking over were uncanny Two multicultural outfits Two countries where cricket is influenced as much by external factors as performances on the field Two teams seeking a mantra to overcome the final hurdle from the zenith a sense of ruthlessness Of talent there was no dearth whatsoever Just like IndiaSouth Africa were blessed with some of the world’s most established and experienced batsmen in their line-up A bunch of seniors at the peak of their powers but lacking a sense of motivation and purpose resulting in the incoming young talent feeling a tad bereaved Under Kirsten and UptonIndia found a leader of unparalleled sagacity and aplomb in Mahendra Singh Dhoni And he blossomed under them Just like an under-pressure yet self-confident Smith rediscovered himself under their auspices Both skippers eventually lifting the mace signifying their ascent to the top of the world The relationship between the two friends of course goes back to the days Upton was South Africa’s first-ever fitness trainer back in the 1990s and Kirsten a dogged left-handed opener The two then also were business partners at their cricket academy in Cape Town before joining forces to tackle more monumental challenges Kirsten’s first appointment after being named as India’s coach in
