A cross-sectional forum, involving Social Protection Minister Joan Burton as well as employers, unions and health professionals, heard how "a healthy workforce is vital to building a healthy economy" as a series of recommendations were published aimed at 'Keeping Ireland Fit for Work'.

Fit for Work Ireland, a coalition made up of senior stakeholders from employers to unions to health professionals, launched its position paper designed to reduce the burden of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Up to 80% of the Irish adult population will be affected by a MSD at some time in their life. They are also the leading cause of ill health in the workforce which currently costs the State €750 million and seven million absentee days each year. This includes €275 million, 30% of the total Illness Benefit paid in 2009, that is directly attributable to MSDs.

As part of European Month of the Brain a number of local neurological patient support groups have come together to organise an event on the 8th May at the Lyrath Hotel in Kilkenny.

'Over 700,000 people in Ireland live with a neurological condition and 66,000 care for someone with a condition so this is an important opportunity for people to develop their awareness of the importance of self-management in improving their lives' said Patrick Little CEO of the Migraine Association and Board member of The Neurological Alliance of Ireland under whose auspices the event is being organised.

Biblical perspectives for living

God Is Father

The apostle John describes God as light (1 John 1:5), but also as Father: "How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!" (1 John 3:1). The God of the Bible is not some distant deity, unconcerned about things that happen in our world. He is not the impersonal "Force" of Star Wars infamy, but one who loves and communicates.

This is not some "universal

fatherhood of God" but is a

relationship that is possible through faith in Christ: "To all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God" (John 1:12). This is not based on natural descent or human accomplishments, but rather is a spiritual birth accomplished by God (v. 13).

While those who believe in the
