The announcement that sixty new jobs are to be created in Waterford by mobile softwear company Red Hat based on the Cork Road brought a much needed morale boost to the area.

The €12.7m. project announcement was made jointly by Minister of State John Halligan and Minister for Jobs, Mary Mitchell O’Connor at the official opening of the company’s new offices located at Communication House. The jobs will be rolled out over a four year period and was described as a “great news story” and an excellent endorsement of the region as a prime location for other technology companies to invest in.

Constitutional & Genetic Weakness

Constitutional & Genetic Weakness is the twelfth and final article in a series about more unusual causes of imbalance in the body. I hope you’ve enjoyed them all.

Have you ever wondered why some people can smoke for years and never get lung cancer, whilst other people can get it from secondary smoking? Or why is it that certain conditions like asthma or eczema seem to run in families? Or that some work colleagues seem to pick up every flu bug going, whereas other lucky ones never seem to get the sniffles! And why, on our honeymoon in India, did I suffer from several tummy bugs, whilst my husband sailed through without a problem?!

The answer to

Systematic Kinesiology is a fully integrated natural health care system which combines the knowledge of chinese acupuncture theory of chi (energy that unites body and mind), modern chiropractic, nutrition and psychology.

Kinesiology is the study of how muscles act and coordinate in the body. It's based on the science of energy balancing and combines a range of gentle but powerful techniques. Systematic Kinesiology looks at the health of the body as a whole, addressing not only what's going on with the physical body, but also the environment and the psychological state of each individual. Each muscle group is related to other body, parts essentially connected on the circuits of certain organs. The technique of muscle monitoring/testing, or biofeedback is used to investigate what may be causing imbalances in the body.

The technique is used to treat a variety of disorders from pain

By Bill Sones and Rich Sones, PhD

Q. What makes some of us all but powerless in the presence of a cruller?

A. “Food cues. These make you eat more,” answers Yale University neuroscientist Hedy Kober in “Discover” magazine. “The sight of food, the smell of it, even just a picture of it - they all make us want it. Just like the classic example of dogs drooling at the ring of a dinnertime bell, it’s out-and-out Pavlovian - a conditioned response to a stimulus.” And just like dogs, we need food but also like it.

The explanation has neurobiological origins: One system regulates our need for food and is controlled mainly in the lower region of the brain, regulating hormones that make us feel hungry or full and responding to energy balance signals. The second, our hedonic reward system, is complex and

Guilt & Shame

Guilt & Shame is the eleventh in a series of articles about more unusual causes of imbalance in the body:

Guilt can take away all the joy from your life. You may find yourself saying “I should be doing this, I should be doing that” instead of “I am doing this, I am doing that.”

No matter what you do or however much you succeed, if you live in the world of “I should”, you will never feel you have accomplished anything, and will continue always to want to achieve more. This sense of non-achievement may concern your relationships with yourself or others, your job, your housework, your education and so on.

You may have internalised the moral

Letters to the Editor

  • OUR VIEW

    The Long Goodbye!Political obituaries are usually written after the body has taken it's last breath. However, with Taoiseach Enda Kenny it seems that his political career was just about breathing long before his colleagues had him dead and buried. Although no one, least of all the Taoiseach himself, has come and said it yet, Enda Kenny's premiership ended last week with a truly awful performance in the Dáil where some members of the Opposition were calling for his head while his own party seemed to be won …
