Roy Keane is asking the people of Waterford to join his favourite team during May: not Sunderland or Manchester United but the team who will make this the 11th Annual Shades fundraiser for Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind a big success.

Duration of Jobseeker's Benefit

Question: I have recently lost my job and I am applying for Jobseeker's Benefit. How long can I get the benefit for?

Answer: Jobseeker's Benefit is a weekly payment from the Department of Social Protection (DSP). It is paid to people who are out of work and are covered by social insurance (PRSI). If you qualify for Jobseeker's Benefit, how long you will get it for depends on how many paid PRSI contributions you have.

Q. What was so special about Albert Einstein's brain that enabled him to become a towering scientific genius?

A. Perhaps just such a curiosity drove examining pathologist Thomas Harvey to photograph Einstein's brain after his death in 1955 and then cut it into 240 blocks, reports "Science" magazine. Only recently did these newly discovered photos prompt a re-examination of the original brain, as researchers led by Florida State Universit anthropologist Dean Falk analyzed 14 photos never previously made public (the journal "Brain").

When compared with records of 85 other brains in the scientific literature, the team found that Einstein's brain was indeed special: Though its size was just average, several regions displayed "unusual twists and folds," especially on the left side connected to the face and tongue. These folds were "much larger than normal," as was

Can I stop my dog's unwanted behaviour?

Dear 'Your Pet's Health',

I have a seven month old Yorkshire Terrier called "Teddy". Since we got him, he has been generally well behaved and shown normal dog behaviour, and he has become a big part of our family. Recently, he has shown some "unusual attraction" to his cushioned dog bed and for want of a better word, he is regularly humping it and this is getting more frequent. It is very embarrassing as he does it even more

Life, and situations that have been concerning you, could be about to become more favourable. It is essential though, that you concentrate on the small, as well as the big things. I am always suggesting that people check everything before signing contracts and so forth – it is amazing how many of us don't - and there is a feeling that, in your case, all the small print will need to be looked at very carefully - and don't allow yourself to be rushed.

Taurus: April 21 – May 21

Trying to second guess the motives of other people can be futile and it is suggested that, in most cases, what you

Clear your clutter!

We all need a certain amount of order in our lives, otherwise there would be chaos. When we work on being organised, we often find that our energy flows better. I have a kitchen cupboard into which I put a lot of my clutter, with the intention of sorting it out later. Whenever I do get round to clearing it out, even though I can't see inside the cupboard, I feel as if the kitchen has more space and light. A clean and tidy room feels a whole lot different to a messy and dirty one!

Now that spring seems to have finally arrived, it's a good time to declutter all the unwanted books, clothes, furniture and
