Q. Technically speaking, what are a few rather novel ways of dying these days - some more literal than others?

A. If you suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out), you just might be a candidate for death-by-smartphone, as you hear that ding or chirp (“attention magnets”) and just have to know what’s going on, even as you cross a busy intersection, says Paul McFedries in “IEEE Spectrum” magazine. Or consider death-by-GPS, so coined by Death Valley National Park rangers, who attested to people following their GPS into the hostile environment of the park and perishing when they ran out of gas and couldn’t get help. And, adds McFedries, “by now the stories of clueless tourists who drive straight into the ocean or go 900 miles in the wrong direction because they mindlessly followed the

Employers across Waterford are being urged to sign up for Ireland’s third National Workplace Wellbeing Day on Friday, 31st March 2017. Last year over 300 companies of all sizes from across the public and private sectors participated in the annual event which aims to improve employee wellbeing through promoting better exercise and nutrition in the workplace. New research shows that only a quarter of workers in Ireland (26%) take the recommended level of exercise for a healthy lifestyle each week.

Marcella Corcoran Kennedy T.D., Minister for State for Health Promotion launched this year’s campaign, which is an initiative of Food and Drink Industry Ireland (FDII), and is supported by Ibec. Speaking at the launch, Danny McCoy, CEO, Ibec said: "As a nation, we

Aries 21st March-21st April

Old habits, old beliefs and out-dated patterns of behaviour could very well begin to come to the forefront now. This is the perfect time to work on things you want to get rid of from your life. So whether it’s self doubt or self limiting beliefs, a tendency to fly off the handle too easily or to wallow in self pity sometimes, or an addiction to salt and vinegar crisps and cheese sandwiches, you can really make progress now.

Taurus 22nd April-21st May

You’re a no-nonsense, straight-talking, sharp-shooting straight from the hip kind of player as the month begins thanks to the position of Mercury in your chart now Taurus. You’re clear headed and find it easy to get your point of view across to others. If you have to

David Cullinane, Sinn Féin TD for Waterford, has criticised the HSE for the cuts in home care hours for Waterford, saying that these are completely unacceptable and need to be addressed.

Deputy Cullinane said: "I asked Minister Harris for the number of home help hours provided both nationally and across all nine community healthcare organisations. The figures show that while the hours provided are down by 5 percent nationally since 2011, for Waterford that figure is 12.5 percent. In other words, home care hours for Waterford have been cut by two and a half times the national average over the past five years.

"It is becoming increasingly clear to me that there is a concerted effort on the part of the HSE to pretend that somehow the needs of the people of Waterford can be served through services in Cork, Limerick or

The UPMC Whitfield Cancer Centre, based in Waterford, is an advanced radiation therapy centre serving patients in the Southeast, is leveraging its successful track record of delivering the highest quality standards of cancer care to assist partner clinicians in Rome.

Having successfully completed three of its own Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation surveys, the gold standard in terms of global health care, the Cancer Centre welcomed colleagues from UPMC San Pietro FBF this past week to share knowledge and information related to quality and safety standards.

“While we are incredibly proud that we have been JCI-accredited since 2008, we are even more proud of how that translates into exceptional patient care and are very excited to be able to share this experience with our colleagues from Rome,” said Catriona McDonald, director of operations at UPMC Whitfield Cancer Centre.

Every day we are all aware of the increase in numbers of children being reported as having ‘special needs’, whether they be physical, intellectual or emotional impairments, and this trend evidentially is on the increase. Experts around the globe are busy trying to come to acceptable scientific explanations, albeit to perhaps say that it’s dietary, environmental, societal or other!

In the meantime, we parents’ who have children with these challenges try to do the very best we can, often with limited financial means, contending with overburdened, ill-informed and at times, unsympathetic services, where they will attribute or categorize our children as being A, B or C and often dismissing parent’s wisdom!

What has this to do with marching for our children and why you may wonder?

Well, can you imagine that if by the time your child is 13 years of age, they

Healing the hurt

As the truth emerges about the Mother & Baby Homes in Ireland, a great deal of pain and hurt has come to the surface. Who can fail to be moved by stories of mothers being separated from their newborn babies, of young children and mothers thoughtlessly buried in a septic tank, and of adult sons and daughters unable to find out information about their birth parents and siblings? These hurts and pains are felt not just by those who were personally affected by what went on, but also by the many others who acutely empathise with the victims.

Two women in my local town of Thomastown came up with the inspired idea to hold a remembrance ceremony
