Reporting a power cut

Question: I frequently switch electricity providers to get the best deals. Who should I contact if there is a power cut?

Answer: No matter which electricity provider you use, you should always contact ESB Networks to report a power cut. The emergency number is 1850 372 999. You should only use this emergency number, not the customer service number.

When you ring this number, you will hear an automated message. If the automated message indicates that ESB Networks are aware of the power problem in your area, you do not need to wait for an operator unless you are reporting a fallen power line or another potentially dangerous situation.

When you get through to an operator, you will need your Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN). The MPRN is displayed on your electricity bill, no matter who the provider is. It

Q. A rather unloving group has revealed some "broken hearts" going back thousands of years. What group is that?

A. Randall Thompson and colleagues at the University of Missouri-Kansas City analyzed CAT scans of 137 mummies from ancient Egypt, Peru, Utah and the Aleutian Islands of the north Pacific Ocean, representing "human populations dating from 3000 BC to the 20th century," reports "New Scientist" magazine. Many of the mummies had calcified plaque in artery walls - often in the aorta or the neck's artery - hinting at artherosclerosis, a major cause of heart attacks ("The Lancet"). Among the premoderns were farmers or hunter-gatherers, the team discovered, raising possibilities of early human predisposition to the disease. And, said Eric Brunner at University College London, people who were mummified were likely of high status, "and therefore had

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.

Following on from my article of last week and in the background of May being "Pet Vaccination Awareness Month", a number of readers have asked for more information about canine leptospirosis.

Leptospirosis, often referred to as "Lepto", is a serious and potentially deadly infectious disease which can affect dogs, other animals and even humans. It is caused by infection with tiny microorganisms called leptospires, which are spread in the urine of infected animals, which are most commonly rats and mice, but could be cattle or other

Sit Up Straight!

The reality of everyday lives is that we spend 8, 10, 12 . . . even 16 hours for some people bound to our car seats, office chairs or sofas. These long periods of sitting creates steady compression in our lower spines; and ultimately our backs pay a price.

It is true; when we talk about bad posture, some people can immediately think about back pain; but what are some of the other dangers of poor alignment?

First of all, let me introduce you to YOUR POSTURE. Your posture is like your signature. It follows you as a shadow everywhere you go. It sits with you, plays soccer with you, does the laundry with you and sleeps at night with you. That's a lot of stuff!

Beside serious back pain (that poor posture inevitably leads to) wacky alignment can lead to

Biblical perspectives for living

God Is Incarnate

Many people have their own ideas of what God is like, but the only authoritative revelation we have is found in Holy Scripture. We have previously seen that the Apostle John described God as "light" and "Father", but we also want to consider the wonder of the truth that God became a man. This truth was under attack at the end of the first century and John responds with a robust defense of the humanity of Jesus. He argues that having heard, seen and even handled Jesus (1 John 1:1-2), He knew Him to be genuinely human.

These false teachers were apparently teaching that since our bodies are inherently evil, Jesus could not have been a real human or else He would have been as corrupt as we are. But after spending three years with Jesus,

    Health in WinterWith the amount of coughing and spluttering seen and heard on the streets of Waterford in the last number of weeks you might be forgiven for thinking that there was a severe case of consumption sweeping the city. Thankfully that isn't the case but it does go to show that when it comes to Winter time that your health can become seriously compromised very quickly and with bad results.
