A new survey from Oxfam Ireland shows that almost six in 10 (56%) people from Munster received an unwanted Christmas gift.

8 out of 10 (80%) Munster-based people feel good knowing that a charity can put their unwanted Christmas gifts to use by raising vital funds to help people in need.

As Oxfam launches an appeal for unwanted Christmas gifts, the survey shows that 80% of people from Munster would consider donating these presents to a charity shop.

Nationally, the research showed that people in Ireland aged under 34 are significantly more likely to feel guilty about returning or giving away unwanted gifts, with this guilt reducing as age increases – only 22% of people over 65 feel guilty about returning or giving away undesirable gifts compared to over half (54%) of 18-24year olds.

Oxfam shops across Munster are in critical need of donations

Minister of State for Health Promotion,

Marcella Corcoran Kennedy TD, recently launched “Healthy Food for Life", the new Healthy Eating Guidelines and Food Pyramid under the aegis of Healthy Ireland.

Healthy Food for Life provides a suite of national healthy eating guidelines for the general population. Their aim is to provide a balanced diet which is crucial in maintaining a healthy weight as well as encouraging positive lifestyles generally.

Buying goods online

Question

I ordered a few presents from a Belgian website. Can I return them if I’m not happy with them?

Answer

Online purchases within the EU are covered by the EU Directive on Consumer Rights. Under this Directive you are entitled to a cooling-off period of 14 days. During the cooling-off period, you can cancel distance contracts such as online purchases without giving a reason and without incurring charges or penalties, other than possible charges incurred in returning the goods. The 14-day cooling-off period begins on the day that you receive the goods.

Upon cancellation, the distance seller is obliged to repay you within 14 days, including delivery costs. If you chose a more expensive type of delivery than the seller’s cheapest standard delivery, you are only entitled to be refunded the cost of the cheaper delivery type.

The seller can withhold the

The Waterford Council of Trade Unions is supporting the Demonstration and Protest on the 14th of January calling for 24/7 Cardiac Care service for the people of the S/East at UHW.

The most recent report into coronary services at UHW has concluded there is no case for 24/7 coronary service. This analysis was based on limited and restricted terms of reference. This has been rejected by medical personnel working at the coalface, who are calling for a second Catheter Laboratory to be opened.

Ms Una Dunphy President of the WCTU said, "we can no longer stand by and watch the vital but limited cardiac service that we have be degraded and reduced further.

The proposed relocation of PCI procedures (the implantation of stents into arteries) to Cork and Dublin is a hugely retrograde step. Patients from the S/East will have to travel to

Q. Can you uncover the truth about these three neuromyths? Myth #1: Men’s and women’s brains function differently. #2: You use only about 10% of your brain. #3: The right and left hemispheres of the brain operate independently and determine the “type” of thinker you are.

A. “Neuromyths,” or false notions about the brain, flourish “because they seem to explain, albeit with dubious logic, otherwise bewildering phenomena,” says Sarah Klein in “Prevention” magazine. Here are some talking-points about these common “myth-conceptions.”

- 1: Some people continue to believe that “men are from Mars and women are from Venus,” but “gender bias is getting the better of anyone who buys this one.” When researchers looked at some Asian and European countries where stereotypical attitudes aren’t prevalent, they found that “women’s math skills are easily on a par

    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 …
