Beauty and the media beast

29 July 2012

SOMETIMES, being a woman is hard. There are so many inequalities between men and women in today’s society that if I were to talk about each and every one of them, this article would be so long that I could probably copy and paste it to a word document, print it, send it to a publisher and make a hugely riveting and success novel out of it called ‘Why Bitches Be Crazy . . . At Gender Inequality And The Downfalls Of The Modern Day Gender Binary’. It might not be as successful as ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ but not every book can be about bondage and sexually aggressive men, okay? (You perverts!) Premium service article

Gilmore ar bhóthar na Glasaigh agus na PDs?

29 July 2012

BHÍ SOTAL James Reilly follasach maidir leis an gcaoi ar láimhseáil sé cás eirí as ceannasaí an HSE, Cathal McGee agus an easpa teagmhála le hAiri ón Lucht Oibre agus an Tánaiste faoin scéal. Rinneadh an scéal níos measa nuair a fuair muid amach go raibh fhios ag an Taoiseach faoin freisin agus nár bhfiú dó labhairt le hEamon Gilmore faoi ach an oiread - ná, nior luaigh ceachtar de Theachtaí Fhine Gael é ag an gcruinniú Rialtais, cé go raibh deacrachtai i bhFeidhmeannas na Seirbhísí Sláinte mar phríomhábhar pléite lena linn.

Much ado about very little

29 July 2012

TÁ CARA AGAM a bhí an-tugtha do na gréasáin sóisialta le roinnt blianta anuas, ag scríobh dialann a shaoil gach maidin, tráthnóna agus oíche ionas go mbeadh a fhios ag an domhan go raibh sé ann.
