Biblical perspectives for living

The dog that didn’t bark

In the popular Sherlock Holmes story "Silver Blaze" the great detective uncovers the truth about a mysterious death partly from "the curious incident of the dog in the night-time." Holmes explained the significance of the incident to Gregory, the Scotland Yard detective: "I had grasped the significance of the silence of the dog, for one true inference invariably suggests others... obviously the midnight visitor was someone whom the dog knew well."

Like Holmes, I am struck by the fact that in spiritual terms, the alarm bells are not ringing at a deafening pitch. Our nation is in a perilous condition spiritually, arguably in free-fall, but few of those who consider themselves spiritual leaders are sounding any kind of clear alarm. It is as though religious leaders imagine that God is pleased with our land,

Heading in the right direction

The body will always feel what the mind is thinking. If you are negative or unkind in your thoughts to yourself, then the body naturally has got to tell you. If you are a pain to yourself, you may develop a headache. If you are impatient or urgently running through life, then you may get the "runs." If you are stagnant, fearful or lack motivation, then you may develop

Gut Week Survey reveals how Munster folk are ‘Fast Foodies’ by day & 'Couch Potatoes' by night

A survey conducted by Yakult to mark Gut Week (August 19th – 25th), an initiative supported by the ISCC (Irish Society for Colitis & Crohn's Disease), shows how the Irish have evolved from a nation of 'Hunter Gatherers' to one of 'fast foodies' by day, led by a core group dubbed the 'Hunter Grabbers' by GutWeek.ie. The survey reveals details of the trend in Munster, where almost a third (30%) are either too busy to eat or snatch breakfast at speed and on the go, including on the commute to work or 'deskfasting' hunched over computers.

Nearly the same number are multitasking munchers during the day, grabbing a bite of lunch while on calls, emails, during meetings or whilst driving around and running from place

Q. Can you name seven "useless" human body parts?

A. You might start with wisdom teeth, says Judy Dutton in "Mental Floss" magazine. Are you among the 5% of people today with room for them? "Back in pre-toothpaste days when molars fell out, wisdom teeth were handy backup chompers."

2. Tonsils in the back of the throat filter out bacteria and viruses but are prone to infection, and many kids have them removed. Luckily for adults, tonsils shrink with age and usually stop causing trouble.

3. Probably not as useless as once thought, the appendix may store beneficial bacteria for repopulating the gut after an illness.

4. The coccyx at the base of the spine consists of three to five vertebrae fused together, "remnants of our long-lost tails."

5. "Arrectores pilorum" are mini-muscles that long ago made our ancestors' body hairs stand

John Owens graduated from the Veterinary College U.C.D. in 1997. He, along with his wife Susan, recently opened Ani-Pets veterinary clinic in Tramore, which is dedicated to the full time care of all companion animals, including exotic pets. He has a special interest in preventative medicine and nutrition.

A question I am often asked by distressed pet owners is: "When is it time to have my pet put to sleep?" Unfortunately, we all, as pet owners, have been faced with a time when having a beloved pet put to sleep is the most humane course of action due to illness or the terminal effects of the ageing process. Reaching the decision can be upsetting for the owner and other people involved, but the welfare and quality of life of the animal must be
