This is somewhat heartening. From The Irish Times late last week comes the news: Dr Henry warned that the vaccine will not have ?any significant impact? on the current surge. He revealed that acceptance of the vaccine is the second highest in the European Union after Malta, with 37 per cent of Irish adults declaring […]

A guest post from Catherine Kelly How can the Irish Government justify ignoring the lived experience of survivors?  The story of mother and baby homes in Ireland is replete with Church and State collusion. The Report of the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes, appears to be carrying forth and sustaining this legacy. Legally, financially, and […]

Unions in one high-profile workplace are a troubled?  In addition, staff in the Oireachtas are concerned at a lack of compliance with mask wearing in the Oireachtas workplace. We would ask that the wearing of masks within the workplace be made mandatory. Peter Finnegan, clerk of the Dáil, wrote back to both unions  On the […]

…as was mentioned yesterday. This, this is… so telling: Donald Trump?s diehard supporters are often accused of living in fantasyland, but one court case recently launched to try to reinstall him as president has surprised even the most hardened observers of Trumpian strangeness by citing as evidence a mythological realm from The Lord of the Rings. […]

In a weirdly soft denialist piece this morning, this particular couple of lines stands out:  For most of this pandemic, the individual risk to any one of us has been low, but the risk to society from uncontrolled transmission is great. Frontline workers who have remained at work throughout the pandemic have long internalised this […]

I was wondering the other day, as one does, about what happened to the Lunar Module after it docked with Apollo 11 for the last time. It’s one of those things where a perfectly obvious question comes to mind years after it should. After all this isn’t a small thing. The Lunar Module brought Armstrong […]

I enjoyed the LOTR films – wasn’t so keen on The Hobbit trilogy which seemed to stretch the very solid original to breaking point, so the news that the new Amazon Lord of the Rings series isn’t a new version of the three LOTR films is welcome. Indeed apparently it will be set in the […]

Interesting, some of the chatter about the priorities of the Biden administration on space exploration. This from MSN late last year suggested that the new administration might be a fair bit more sceptical of a 2024 Moon return than the previous administration. There are some fairly solid technological and process issues… The space agency has […]

Always really liked Lush, particularly their early EPs. And their reunion in the mid 2010s was admirable in its brevity. They did exactly what they said they would – released another excellent EP, toured the US and then… stopped. But I was surprised late last year to learn that a sort of shoegaze/postpunk supergroup had […]
