Facts that sound like lies Oxford University is older than the Aztec Empire. Not once in the Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme does it mention that he’s an egg. France was still executing people with a guillotine when the first Star Wars film came out. The unicorn is the national animal of Scotland. A strawberry isn’t a berry but a banana is. So are avocados and watermelon. New York City is further south than Rome, Italy. North Korea and Finland are separated by one country, Russia The pyramids were as old to the Romans as the Romans are to us. If you dug a hole to the center of the Earth and dropped a book down, it would take 42 minutes to reach the bottom. There is 10 times more bacteria in your body than actual body cells. And 90% of the cells that make us up of aren’t human but mostly fungi and bacteria. Every two minutes, we take more pictures than all of humanity in the 19th century. The difference in time between when Tyrannosaurus Rex and Stegosaurus lived is greater than the difference in time between Tyrannosaurus Rex and now. There are more atoms in a glass of water than glasses of water in all the oceans on Earth. The probability of you drinking a glass of water that contains a molecule of water that also passed through a dinosaur is almost 100%. At the time the current oldest person on Earth was born, there was a completely different set of human beings on the planet. And at the time you were born, you were briefly the youngest person in the entire world. Cleopatra lived closer to the invention of the iPhone than she did to the building of the Great Pyramid. Russia has a larger surface area than Pluto. Saudi Arabia imports camels from Australia. Vending machines are twice as likely to kill you than a shark is. Home Alone was released closer to the moon landing than it was to today. There are more fake flamingos in the world than real flamingos. A thousand seconds is about 16 minutes. A million seconds is about 11 days. A billion seconds is about 32 years. And one trillion seconds is about 32,000 years. A trillion is a lot. But the good news is: Honey never spoils. You can eat 32,000-year-old honey. PAGE 2

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Your News & Views

Cash for Gold Dear Editor, I totally agree with the suggestion from an Independent Dublin City councilor that outlets offering to pay cash for gold should instead pay by cheque. The cash for gold facility is far too tempting for burglars who want to dispose quickly of their ill-gotten gains. The incidence of house-break-ins in Ireland has reached epidemic levels in recent times. Apart from the loss of sentimental items and valuable property, the very thought of one's home being violated by thieves is nauseating and the long-term psychological effects of a burglary can be devastating for victims. All outlets involving in the purchase of unwanted gold should be required BY LAW to pay by cheque and to retain details of each transaction. People who have nothing to hide, buyers and sellers alike will have nothing to fear from such a change. The outlets will be able to rest easy knowing that they won't be buying stolen property in error. A bona fide seller, who simply wishes to dispose of unwanted

gold jewelry, can cash or lodge the cheque. No problem. The ONLY people who could have a problem with being paid by cheque are thieves who obviously wouldn't wish to attract attention and won't be too anxious to be identified by that clearly printed name on the cheque. While the requirement to pay customers by cheque for gold won't end burglary, it could make this cowardly and despicable crime less lucrative. We'll never completely eliminate crime from society. Human nature unfortunately encompasses this aberration. But we sure as hell don't have to make it easy for the criminals! Thanking you, John Fitzgerald.

Wellness - You can’t out-train a bad diet! With Douglas Wellness Centre So What's More Important Diet or Exercise? Much is written about diet & exercise and which is more important. The answer is both are important if you want to be the correct weight and look & feel healthy. The question is which is more important? The simple answer is that 80% of any result you are looking for in a weight management programme is going to come from getting your diet right and 20% is down to the exercise you do. You can rapidly undo all the good work done exercising by making poor dietary choices. Exercise Burns Far Less Calories Than You Think Take a look at a couple of simple examples. A steady walk for 1 hour will typically burn 230 calories if you weigh 11 stone (70kgs). Step that up to a one hour power walk and that's around 350 calories. And, if you can run at 10 minute mile pace, then you step that up to around 700 calories/hr. Your average ‘meal deal lunch’ will, however, set you back in the region of 450-600 calories! And that’s before any little “well done for exercising treats” like a scone with butter & jam (500 calories) or a simple 100g bar of milk chocolate (535 calories). How Do You Get the Balance Right? In simple terms a number of studies have shown that people get on average 300% better results when they

get help to do the right things i.e. coaching! “Coaching?” you may say, “isn't that going to cost a lot?!”. The answer is it needn't do so. Introducing the 'Healthy Body Club' Healthy Body Club (HBC) is a community of people with an interest in creating a healthier body. It is not limited to people wishing to lose weight - rather it is for anyone who would like to achieve any kind of healthier body result - lower body fat, higher muscle mass, better hydration, better digestive health, more energy etc.

The HBC meets twice weekly. On Saturdays from 9:30/11:30am and Tuesdays from 7:30/9:30pm at Douglas Wellness Centre (beside Tesco). Participants will benefit from: FUN exercise activities for all abilities, individual wellness/dietary evaluation, 1:1 dietary coaching, energy tea & recovery nutritional smoothie. All this for just €5! FIRST VISIT is FREE. Call or text us on the numbers below for more details and/or to book your place.

170 Estates Taken in Charge by Cork County Council

Shane Prepared to Set Marquee Alight

The Council meeting on Monday, 24th March represented a signiďŹ cant day for residents in 170 residential estates across the County when the Council members formally approved the ' taking in charge ' of the estates. In general, when the Council takes an estate in charge, it becomes responsible for the maintenance of roads, footpaths, public lighting and public services within the estate ( except in some cases where management companies operate). I have been a long time critic of the Council's inaction regarding the taking in charge of residential estates and I have raised this issue on numerous occasions at Council meetings. I am pleased that the Council has now taken a major step in the right direction towards addressing this huge issue. In the past, tens of thousands of residents were effectively left abandoned when essential repairs were necessary in their estates. The Council would simply state that the estate had not been taken in charge and in many cases the developers were not responsive. 16 of the 170 estates are in the Douglas and Rochestown area and include the following estates: Abbotswood, Alderbrook, Forthill, Amberley, Oakview / Oakview Drive, Berkeley, Curragh Woods, Green Valley, The Maples, Jamesmont, Westgrove, Springbrook, Landsborough, Maryborough Woods, Silverbirch and The Fairways. Unfortunately, there are a number of estates which the OfďŹ cials did not include on the list approved at last Monday's meeting and this is disappointing for the residents involved. However, the Council has signalled its intention to take in charge a wider list of estates and have stated that this will be an ongoing process. If you have a query about an individual estate, please let me know.

Ronnie McGinn’s Poetry Corner It was with great shock and a tremendous feeling of loss that I learned of the death of Katherine O'Riordan. Katherine a prominent member of The Bishopstown Writers Group, was primarily an artist, well known for her many exhibitions, she was also a fine musician much admired for her excellent craft in piano playing, but to many she was a writer. A native of Macroom, she spent most of her married life in Bishopstown, then following the death of her beloved husband Eugene, she moved to Ballincollig where she lived with her daughter Marguerite. Katherine leaves behind two sons, Ted and Niall, three daughters, Elaine, Zena and Marguerite and fourteen grandchildren. Her book “A Certain Time A Certain Place” contains many of her short stories about growing up in Macroom, it also contains some of her poetry and some images of her paintings. We miss you Katherine, our deepest sympathy to all your family and friends, may you Rest in Peace. Happiness

Local Representation for Our Local Area is Vital: I am delighted to be your new local candidate in the forthcoming local election. In these elections you will be voting in the new larger Ballincollig-Carrigaline local electoral area. The addition of Ballincollig now makes this one of the largest local electoral areas in the country. Ensuring maximum representation for our area will be vital. At present I believe that the Rochestown, Douglas, Donnybrook, Grange and FrankďŹ eld areas are totally underrepresented. The daughter of Carmel and the late Cyril Desmond, I have lived all my life in Douglas. I have a strong passion for politics and community involvement. I am a former scout leader in Douglas and I have been a member of Cork Lions Club for over 20 years. I have lived all my life in Douglas and I believe that we need to ensure that we have more local representation on the new County Council after the elections on the 23rd May next. I have been meeting you on the doors over the last number of weeks and I know you have the same concerns.

l a e p p A g g E r e t s a E FULL TIME STREET CLEANER REINSTATED IN DOUGLAS Cork County Council have reinstated a full time street cleaner in Douglas village. Over the last number of years, due to monetary constraints, Cork County Council have been unable to provide a full time cleaning service in the Douglas area. Douglas village has been serviced only 2-3 days a week. This has lead to increased litter problems in the village, with particular problems over the weekend. Douglas Tidy Towns have risen to the challenge with their regular Saturday morning clean up, but problems with litter still continue. Independent councillor, Cllr David Boyle welcomes the reintroduction. Cllr Boyle says," this is a very welcome development. Douglas has not been getting the service that it deserves over the last number of years. Litter has been a major problem in the village over the weekend. Monday mornings have been particularly bad with litter build up. The reinstatement of a full time service will go a long way to help solve this problem". Cork County Council also plan to place a litter bin in the village. A new bin is to be reintroduced in the east side of the village. Cllr Boyle continues," I have had many complaints from people in the area were annoyed about the lack of bins in the village. This has not helped the litter problem. Again this will go some way to alleviate the litter problem in the village".

Gardening Things to do this week

Cllr Kieran McCarthy will give two local history talks in the next fortnight. The first is being organised by the South Parish Historical Society and takes place on Wednesday 2 April, 7.30pm at St John's College. Kieran will speak on his writing and fieldwork along the River Lee. The origin of the name Lee is sketchy and legend reputedly attributes the name to an ethnic group known as the Milesians from Spain who reputedly arrived in Ireland several thousand years before the time of St. FinBarre. Legend has it that the Milesians acquired land in Southern Munster, which they named 'Corca Luighe' or 'Cork of the Lee' from Luighe, the son of Ith who attained the land after the Milesian advent to Ireland. The geography of the visible River valley is fractured and diverse. It is a beautiful landscape, a landscape transformed through the centuries by people. The diverse archaeological monuments from Stone Age tombs to the solitary Norman or Irish castle to the nineteenth century churches reflect the use of the River Lee Valley and its scenery and resources by its residents for the nourishment of the soul, living and surviving. The townland names of the ordnance survey reflect a human story especially the impact of human history on the natural landscape. It is an impact, which spans thousands of years. Kieran's second talk takes place on Wednesday, 9 April, 10.30am, Meeting room, Church of the Real Presence, Curaheen. It is been organised by the Curaheen Family Centre in association with the Lifelong Learning Festival and the talk is on Cork's Great Exhibitions. Cork has had three exhibitions (1852, 1883 & 1902/3) and one fair (1932). All put the city in a highly visible place in Irish public life and in the popular imagination. All developed social tools to push forward an ideology, representation and symbolism that marked Cork's and Ireland's place in the British empire under British rule and in the context of the Irish Free State 1932 fair in the early twentieth century. The exhibitions were the brain child of Cork's social elite. The exhibitions became a marketing strategy where spectacle and culture merged. Aesthetics of architecture, colour, decoration and lighting were all added to the sense of spectacle and in a tone of moral and educational improvement. The events also aimed to consolidate ideologically and extend the authority of the city's corporate, political and scientific leadership. Each stand in its own way promoted ideas about the relations of the Cork city and other nations, the spread of education, the advancement of science, the nature of domestic life and the place of art in society.

PUBLIC MEETING What about the 'Election' Posters? by Diarmaid Ó Cadhla Mobile 086-380 50 05 This week various Political Party sympathisers have gone public to criticise the People's Candidates who have put what they call 'election posters'. The posters in question are advertising public meetings, inviting voters to join a discussion with the candidates, in public forum, before voting. Is it right to invite the public to discussion? Why is it not standard practice to have candidates meet the people in open forum, before, during and after election? People should know that when the Political Parties print glossy leaflets and erect colourful printed posters we, the public, are paying for them! In the words of Minister Pat Rabbitte, we are paying to be lied to: "isn't that what you do in the course of an election". Our money is used to finance the Political Party system; through the Oireachtas alone they get over €12 million every year. The EU and Local Government also gives our money to the Parties, through direct subvention and by providing a host of ways for the Parties to milk the system for their own enrichment. Of course the powerful vested interests in the financial, property and corporate worlds also 'donate' significant resources to promote the Political Parties. Since the foundation of our state the Political Parties have enacted Electoral Laws that favour themselves, Standing Orders in the Oireachtas and at Local Government give them preference. Even the 'Standards in Public Office Commission' places more stringent demands on non-Party candidates, it's regulations are no more than a smoke screen covering up the widespread corruption that continues. When we get our ballot papers we will see the ultimate insult to our democracy; private member clubs, the Political Parties, are allowed to have heavily marketed logos printed beside their names. Considering that there is no mention of the words "Political Party" in our Constitution this amounts to an abuse of our democratic process. The manner in which the Party system operates, and how they have manipulated the electoral system is a denial of the most fundamental democratic principle - the equal right of citizens to elect and be elected. Readers are invited to come to the meeting and join the discussion, that is how we will find solutions to the many problems faced by our communities. PAGE 26
