Waterford Fianna Fáil TD, Mary Butler has said that mixed messages on the potential implementation of the Herity Report are a cause for concern, and that Government supporting members of the Oireachtas need to step up and deliver for Waterford.

Speaking following a meeting between a number of Waterford TDs and the Chief Operations Officer (COO) of the South/South West Hospital Group, Deputy Butler said: “There is clearly a lack of clarity about how the misguided Herrity Report would be implemented

“The COO gave us conflicting accounts. On the one hand, he said that the Herrity Report is government policy so it will be implemented, yet on the other hand said that the recommendation to cease all PCI interventions would not be implemented this year, or even next year.

“While I welcome any delay in reducing these services, Minister Halligan, Deputy Deasy, and

Q. Picture the scene, as described by “Discover” magazine: 18-time world champion Go player Lee Sedol was locked into fierce competition when his opponent made a move “so unorthodox, Sedol left the room to regain his composure.” Can you identify this formidable opponent?

A. Go, an ancient Chinese board game, is “elegantly simple yet wickedly difficult to master because of the near-infinite number of legal moves on the board’s 19-by-19 grid,” explains the magazine’s Carl Engelking. It was 2016, and Sedol’s opponent was AlphaGo, a program from Google’s AI research company that paired a traditional Monte Carlo tree search with two kinds of neural networks. Using these, AlphaGo analyzed “30 million moves made by human experts and then discovered new strategies by playing itself thousands of times.”

The result? AlphaGo executed Move 37, “a move a

Brought to book!

Twelve years ago this month, I submitted my very first column to the Waterford Today. I’m delighted to say that both myself and the paper are still going strong! Sometimes it can be difficult to decide on what to write about, but most of the time I have been lucky and have been inspired by the clients, friends and family around me (please do contact me if you have any questions or topics you would like to see covered).

One of the best aspects about writing the columns is the lovely feedback I receive. Many people have written to me saying that an article has struck a chord or resonated strongly with them or inspired them. It’s
