prioritise balanced development throughout the southern region. To this end The Southern Regional Assembly established 18 key recommendations for the region, which will feed into the NPF. Cllr. Jason Murphy and

Jury service


I have been called for jury service but I’m not sure if I can take the time off work. What are my employment rights if I attend for jury service?


If you are in employment, there is a duty on your employer to allow you to attend for jury service. Time spent on jury service must be treated as if you were actually employed. In other words, you are entitled to be paid while you are away from work. Anyone with a contract of employment (including temporary or contract workers) is entitled to be paid by the employer while on jury service.

There should be no loss of any other employment rights while you serve on a jury. The Jury Office of the court will provide a certificate of attendance on request.

If you are self-employed and work alone and your attendance

Q. It’s not very often that molasses is a villain in a major story, but it certainly can happen - and did. Explain, please.

A. “On January 15, 1919, a storage tank in Boston’s North End

ruptured and a wave of molasses more than 7 meters high (23 feet) swept through the streets, flattening buildings and killing 21 people,” reports “New Scientist” magazine. The question puzzling historians nearly a century later is why a slow-moving fluid caused such


Using data from historical records and from experiments with molasses flow, aerospace engineer Nicole Sharp and Harvard

University’s Jordan Kennedy concluded that unusual currents and cold temperatures were likely both villains in the tragedy. Gravity currents came into play when molasses, a dense fluid, spread

horizontally into the less dense fluid of air, accounting for the speed of the initial spread.

A good crowd attended the First multi-cultural coffee morning which was held in The Edmund Rice centre on Wednesday last, 8th March. Laughter and chatter filled the room as the smell of tempting treats filled the air. “Isolation can be very difficult – particularly in a foreign country” organiser Elisabeth Ruytenburg told me. “We just thought it would be nice for people to get together and get to know each other, food is something we can all relate to and we all enjoy so it’s important to have a safe environment where we can all meet and have a cup of tea and something to eat.” Elisabeth and her friends, who are Muslim, set up a mother and toddlers group last year which meets every other Tuesday at no1 Viewmount. “We have a cuppa and a chat and discuss what

Waterford Today weekly horoscopes

Wednesday 15th March Tuesday 21st March

Aries 21st March-21st April

You may be shining a light on your routines Aries, as industrious Virgo pays a visit to your house of efficiency. You’ll be looking for quicker and easier ways to operate leaving you more time to concentrate on yourself and your needs. Know your worth in a relationship and be clear about what you need from your partner (especially if you want/need something in particular as a birthday gift!).

Taurus 22nd April-21st May

Slow everything down Taurus. You may have been channelling that bullish energy to accomplish tasks for yourself and everyone around you. But you may have been ignoring feelings bubbling up inside. If you can recognise where these are coming from, let them out in the confidence of someone close. If you’re confused by them, maybe write them down

International aid agency Concern Worldwide has today launched an East Africa Crisis Appeal for €25 million to help support 1.8 million people urgently in need of food assistance due to drought and conflict across the fragile region.

The Irish organisation has deployed Emergency Response Teams to cope with the worsening humanitarian situation in South Sudan, Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia, where more than 20 million people are in critical need of food, water and shelter.

Famine has already been declared in parts of South Sudan, where 4.9 million people - 40 per cent of the population - urgently need food and nutrition assistance while 100,000 people face starvation.

Conflict and ethnic tensions along with drought have exacerbated the problem with Concern staff on the ground hearing ‘harrowing’ accounts from vulnerable families escaping violence.

Similarly, conflict and drought have caused famine-like conditions in Somalia with 6.2
