Advertorial

Want To Be Liked or Want To Be Rich? BUSINESS management are usually satisďŹ ed when social media â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;likesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC; followersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;visitor numbersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; through their website have increased indicating that they must be doing something right. However, the real measurement of success is that these ďŹ gures actually transgress into increase sales and ultimately an increase in the bottom line ďŹ gure. Small business owner managers can often get caught up in trying to learn all about â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;digitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; marketing, attending seminars and training courses to learn about the magic buttons they need to press to make their business successful. Often they neglect to actual plan and implement a digital marketing strategy owing to a number of factors such as

time, skillset and ďŹ nancial resources. Niall McKeown, Managing Director of iON Technology has been involved in internet marketing for 16 years. He will be the guest speaker at the next Kilkenny County Enterprise Board owner manager lunchtime network meeting on September 25, in Newpark Hotel, where he will address some of the issues raised in his latest book â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Want to be Liked or Want to be Rich?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

Strategy planning â&#x20AC;&#x153;Digital strategy doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come from creating visual concepts, great websites, interesting tag lines or social engagement. Strategy comes from identifying near term challenges and overcoming them,â&#x20AC;? says Niall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The success or failure of a digital marketing

campaign is won and lost in the strategy planning phase of a project.â&#x20AC;? The Kilkenny County Enterprise Board has assisted in the establishment of an Owner Manager Network which now meets monthly. This lunchtime network enables members to meet other business owners, hear from leading experts such as Niall McKeown and also provides potential business opportunities. The meetings will be held on the last Wednesday of every month in Newpark Hotel, 12.30pm. For further details about this networking event or if you would like to register to attend this meeting log on to www. kceb.ie or contact our office @ 42 Parliament Street, Kilkenny 056-7752662 or enquiries@ kceb.ie

Loving your wonderful country. Janice Linnert, USA.

Celts bow out

Search for Brennans

It’s that time of year again as preparations for Wellie Race 2014 begin. The Wellie Race Committee have started weekly meetings in the Powley HQ, aka Dillon’s. The hunt is on for a race personality. Security was tight around Dillon’s as committee members arrived for the first meeting, chairman John Brennan; secretary Chubby Brennan; treasurer Paul Brophy. They will keep Reporter readers up to date as they make progress.

The lottos

Celtic were knocked out of the Maher shield today after a hard fought game at home to Newpark, a game in which the scoreline didn’t reflect the difference between the teams. The first half was played at a very high tempo and the away team were fortunate to go in at the break a goal up. Newpark were the better team in the second half and made their dominance count with an early second goal from a corner. Celtic did all they could to get on the scoreboard but were unable to break the Newpark defence and were caught on the break twice before the final whistle. Team: Robbie Lynch, Ronan Phelan, Tom Dowling, John Deevy, Alan Phelan, Neil Murtagh, John Dohenyy, Caleb Roche, Robert Brennan, David

It would be nigh impossible not to stumble across a Brennan in Castlecomer, but to find the right one is the trick. Here is a letter from a visitor to our town: It was truly an honour to meet you. I can’t thank you enough for taking time out of your schedule to share information with us about the Brennan family. I forwarded your two emails to my dad as well. I will send you the family trees and try to gather more information when I get home to the United States. Wow! What an amazing photo! You are truly blessed to have so many in your family, You’re right, a true Irish family! Thanks for sharing. We are in Killarney now, heading to Dingle. We are having such a great time here.

The hunt is on

Volunteers Volunteers are needed for a watch and pray ceremony in St Mary’s Cathedral, Kilkenny. People will be asked to spend one hour in adoration between 9am and 1pm. If you can help please contact the Parish Office 77-21253 or stmaryscathedral@ossory.ie.

Drinking in our streets: Your Views Local festival organisers can now apply to City Hall for permission to ease local bye laws which may allow drinking in our streets. A motion to ease the laws was passed by eight votes to three at a meeting of Kilkenny Borough Council. Do our people agree with that decision? Writer Geni Murphy and photographer Noel Hoyne took to the street to ask the pertinent question.

ilkenny needs no introduction as one of Ireland’s most popular counties among visitors, but some aspects of Kilkenny’s life and history may not be so familiar. We have uncovered some Kilkenny facts that we certainly didn’t know. Read on to see how clued in you are about Kilkenny! As befits a county that is unrivalled when it comes to hurling prowess, our first interesting fact about Kilkenny relates to the All-Ireland Hurling Championship. When it comes to hurling, Kilkenny has confronted the

English county of Lancashire more often (twice) than its neighbouring county Carlow. The 1993 Carlow game ended Kilkenny 5-19 : Carlow 0-16 – a 19-point victim for the Cats. Speaking of which, the “Kilkenny Cats” nickname stems from the feral felines that once inhabited the Dunmore caves in the north of the county. Iconic film producer and animation innovator Walt Disney has Kilkenny roots. His

great-grandfather Arundel Elias Disney emigrated from Gowran, County Kilkenny, in the 19th century. Irish legend describes Dunmore Cave, seven miles north of Kilkenny, as one of Ireland’s darkest places and the site where the monster Luchtigen ‘The Lord of the Mice’ was killed. Film star George Cloo-

ney’s great-great-grandfather was baptised Nicholas Clooney in Windgap church, Kilkenny, on July 23, 1829. The gravestone of Daniel O’Connell in Glasnevin Cemetery, Dublin is made from Kilkenny black marble, and the stone was also used in the construction of Cobh Cathedral in Cork. Gulliver’s Travels author, Jonathan Swift, attended Kilkenny College in the late 17th century, and a building at the college was named after him in 2007. Swift’s fellow students included playwright William Congreve and the philosopher George Berkeley – after whom

California’s Berkeley College is named. The Butler family handed Kilkenny Castle over to the people of Kilkenny in 1967 – for £50! The White House in Washington DC was designed by a Kilkenny architect James Hobon who won a competition to design this iconic structure way back in 1792 after he emigrated to America. Historians believe that James Hoban based his plan on Leinster House, the Georgian style home of the Dukes of Leinster in Ireland. Leinster House is now the seat of the Irish Parlia-

ment. In 1324 Kilkenny resident Dame Alice Kyteler came to public attention after 3 of her rich husbands died in quick succession and her 4th husband became ill with a mysterious wasting disease. The Bishop was called in to investigate complaints against her which included brewing evil potions made of worms, corpses’ nails and unbaptised babies in a beheaded thief’s skull and obtaining her wealth from demons. Some of the witnesses who testified against her were many of the nobles who were in debt to her.

18 9 2013 KILKENNY REPORTER

Alice was convicted of sorcery but managed to escape to England and live out the rest of her life there. Her unfortunate servant girl Petronilla was burned alive at the stake on Kilkenny’s High street after confessing under torture to heresy and orgies. Guests of Kilkenny Tourist Hostel love a pint in Kyteler’s Inn the tavern established in the 13th century. In 1888 Asa Griggs Candler, a pharmisist, bought the rights to the formula for Coca Cola from Dr John Permberton, and the ancestoral home of the Candler family was in Callan County Kilkenny. Asa’s ancestor William Candler went to

Ireland from England as a Captain in Cromwell’s Irish campaign and was subsequently granted the Barony of Callan for meritorious service in 1653 and the family lived at Callan Castle in County Kilkenny. Generations later Asa Griggs Candler recognised a good thing when he saw it and by using great business acumen made a fortune selling his fizzy drink and in doing so established one of the most valuable brands in the world. Coming full circle Asa Grigg Candler’s family home built in the Beaux Arts style in 1902 in Inman Park Atlanta Georgia is called Callan Castle. St Nicholas ( the saint who

inspired the legend of Santa Claus) is reputedly buried in Thomastown County Kilkenny in the old church to the west of Jerpoint Abbey.The legend is that the De Freynes, the Norman knights of Jerpoint when forced to evacuate the Holy Land, exhumed the remains of St Nicholas at Myra in Turkey, eventually laying them to rest at Jerpoint Co Kilkenny. Why not go out to Thomastown and have a look for youself.

Xxx XXX newfilms ALL THE BOYS LOVE

MANDY LANE

J

onathan Levine is one of the best young filmmakers working today. His last two features, Warm Bodies and 50/50 demonstrated not just a beautiful visual style, but also an impressive handling of tone and performances, deftly playing with comedic and dramatic elements while also getting the best out of actors like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer. He’s growing and maturing as a director, and that becomes quite clear watching All The Boys Love Mandy Lane, both his newest and his oldest movie. First premiering at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival, the film is actually Levine’s first feature. Based on a script by Jacob Forman, the film tells the story of a virgin/chaste teen and major crush object Mandy Lane (Amber Heard) and her party weekend trip to a remote ranch house with a small group of friends (Whitney Able, Luke Grimes, Aaron Himelstein, Edwin Hodge, Melissa Price). In classic horror style, the guests start getting picked off one by one, but this time that familiar story is as rote as it sounds. If it weren’t for Levine’s sty-

listic contribution it would be hard to see why anyone would push so hard for its release seven years after its original debut. As much as I will rag on the screenplay, All The Boys Love Mandy Lane is a beautifully directed movie. Filming mostly on a Texas ranch, the director takes advantage of the many stunning vistas and wide open fieldss. Mixing in a high contrast to the cinematography heightens the darkness of the story and gives every scene the pinch more of atmosphere that it needs. What’s more, the film proves that picking proper songs for the soundtrack has long been one of the filmmaker’s greatest strengths, mixing in classic tracks with more poppy numbers. Levine’s skills, however, can’t completely transform what is a severely underwhelming script. Seeming to almost purposefully be as by-the-book as possible, the plot plays out exactly as you expect it to – twists and all – and doesn’t make any real big effort to generate a spark of creativity (though some of the death scenes are interesting just for their contrapasso qualities). Forman also really fails to develop any kind

of individual personalities for the characters. The entire cast is painted with a broad brush, the young boys portrayed as horny dickheads and the girls as catty bitches. The only ones who exist apart from those two extremes are Mandy, Garth (Anson Mount), the adult ranch hand, and Emmet (Michael Welch), Mandy’s former best friend, who are instead all just quiet and stoic. Watching the film I struggled just to try and learn all of the characters’ names just to be sure that I could tell them apart, and when they were cut down by the mysterious killer it was great news because it meant that there were fewer characters to remember. In this day and age it’s actually rare that we wouldn’t be able to see a director’s first work before their fourth, but at the very least All The Boys Love Mandy Lane gives us a valuable perspective on Levine as a filmmaker and how he has grown to make movies like The Wackness, 50/50 and Warm Bodies. It would still be interesting to see the director take on some more straight horror fare, but hopefully next time he would be working from a much stronger script.

Xxx XXX newďŹ lms THE FAMILY

If you feel like being nitpicky, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a whole lot wrong with director Luc Bessonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest The Family. An angry, motivated person could write multiple reviews ranting about its bizarre usage of voiceovers and less than expert structure without ever repeating himself. But whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the point of doing that when the film is actually kind of enjoyable? In spite of all its overt mistakes, The Family has more than its share of laughs and a clear likability. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to win any awards, but most people will leave the theater smiling. And that has to be considered a success. It all starts with acting. By now, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all well aware Robert De Niro is damn good at playing mobsters. Here, he plays a Mafia snitch and not surprisingly, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very believable in the part. Even beyond that obvious and perfect casting, the supporting parts work just as well. Michelle Pfeiffer is the best sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been in years as De Niroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supportive and vindictive wife, and Tommy Lee Jones is underused but as good as ever as the FBI handler overwhelmed by the incompetence around him. The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basic premise follows the titular family, The Blakes, as they move into a new house with new identities in Normandy, France. The father Fred (De Niro) testified against many of his former bosses and partners in a New York City Mafia family. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a $20 million bounty on his head, so, to keep him safe, the government shipped him and his family off to Europe. Unfortunately, all involved continue to act like homicidal maniacs, which requires assuming new identities every ninety days or so. In its better moments, The Family is able to tread the line between exaggeration and absurdity to produce maximum laughs without losing its tether to reality. In its worst moments, The Familyis a bit of a hot mess. In addition to spending time on the wrong side of that aforementioned absurdity line, it also doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to have the slightest idea how to tell its own backstory. It uses irregular De Niro voiceovers on occasion. It reads segments of a book on occasion. It even uses bad dreams and flashbacks, all of which, when used together, make the film seem disorganized and poorly put together. All of that, coupled with more than a few jokes that fall flat and a plot thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s windy and strangely paced keep The Family from being anything more than a likeable enough way to spend an hour and forty-five minutes. I recommend The Family in the same way I might mint-flavored gum. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what you would hope for, but when choosing at random, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d do worse a little more often than not.

Ten useful tips

to keep your pets happy 1. Using metal water dishes outside in winter may be a risk, because your petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tongue could stick to the frozen metal. In the summer, metal bowls can get very hot and burn your dog. 2. If you have a puppy that pees on your carpet: After soaking up most of the mess with a paper towel, sprinkle a generous amount of bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) over the area and leave it to absorb both the traces of urine and the odor. 3. If your dog runs away from you and you finally catch up to it, no matter how angry you are at the dog, do not yell or smack it or your dog will never come to you when called for fear of being punished. 4. Do not leave your dog unattended on a choke chain. The chain could get caught and strangle the dog. 5. Do not leave your dog in the car unattended on hot days. Even with the windows open, temperatures in cars WILL reach deadly levels. It only takes five minutes! If you see a dog locked in a very hot car do something to try and help it before itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too late. 6. Do not make your dog walk on extremely hot or cold asphalt, cement, etc. The pads of their paws are not made out of steel. If it is too hot for you to walk barefoot, then chances are that it is too hot for your dog also.

7. To keep your dog busy, buy toys with little holes in them (such as a Kong), put both big and small pieces of kibble in the toy and give it to your dog. This will keep him busy for quite a while, presuming he has a few small ones that he gets out quickly. You can also wedge dog biscuits in the holes with a smear of peanut butter. 8. When your dog is teething, instead of have him chewing on couches, walls, etc., buy a few (cheap) washcloths. Soak the washcloth with water and put it in the freezer. When fully frozen, give it to the dog to chew. It will thaw out so have another one ready in the freezer. (Be careful when doing this with very small dogs, as they may get a chill. I have heard of small dogs getting too cold too quickly when chewing on ice.) 9. For teething puppies, mix chicken or beef broth (look for low fat, low sodium brands) with 1 ½ cups of water. Pour the mixture into ice cube trays to made broth ice cubes. They are tasty treats on hot days. (Be careful when doing this with very small dogs, as they may get a chill. I have heard of small dogs getting too cold too quickly when chewing on ice.) 10. Do not leave your pet in an area with dangling phone cords, drape cords or other items that it may strangle itself on. Be aware of electric cords that may be chewed by the pet.

 The Big Lebowski (1998) The Big Lebowski is a 1998 comedy ďŹ lm directed by brothers Joel and Ethan Coen. The duo are a proliďŹ c and extremely talented group that have been making ďŹ lms since the early 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and still manage to put out great work to this day. Their movies almost always have a sense of surrealism even at their most grounded and The Big Lebowski is no exception. The ďŹ lm follows the character of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Dudeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lebowski(Jeff Bridges), an old apathetic stoner who is mistaken for a millionaire and has his carpet pissed on.

The Dude then tries to ďŹ nd down the real Lebowski and replace his rug. This is the basic story but the ďŹ lm twists and turns so many times that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to get a better description. The ďŹ lm has many, many layers of comedy that can only be discovered with repeated viewings, a lot of repeated viewings. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the fantastic and endlessly quotable dialogue, or the nature of The Dude or just the general absurdity of the entire piece, there is always more in this ďŹ lm. Though, the most famous element of the ďŹ lm though is how people who watch it for the ďŹ rst time almost unanimously despise it. For reasons that seem to change from person to person; the ďŹ rst viewing of The

Big Lebowski will almost certainly disappoint and possibly depress many viewers. But it is certainly worth this struggle, because every time you watch the ďŹ lm after that experience it becomes better. I will admit that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve only watched the ďŹ lm three times (twice this year) but I know people who have watched it twice a week for months and it is still getting better. The Big Lebowski is one of those properties like The Wire or The Grateful Dead that people hate, not because of their quality but because of their terrible fanbase. While this is certainly true for the ďŹ lm, you should not let that ruin the experience for you. It is a fantastic movie and should certainly not be missed.



 Hunter S Thompson â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, released in 1971 in two parts The novel follows the characters of Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo and their trip to Las Vegas to report on the Mint 400 Motorcycle Race. Through the course of the novel the two main characters take an incredible amount of drugs and spend the majority of the book frightened and exhausted. As Duke says in the ďŹ rst chapter, they had: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The novel is an example of what Thompson called, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Gonzo Journalismâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Inspired by the Faulkner quote: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The best ďŹ ction is far more true than any kind of journalismâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The style involves a much more personal and exaggerated

approach to writing journalism that will often be told from the ďŹ rst person. It is opposed to the classical style that strives for a much more detached view on events, backed up by sources. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas has gone on to be considered one of the seminal works in the genre, though Thompson himself considered it a failed experiment due to its inaccuracies with the events described. The book also contains a sub heading: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dreamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. So yes, along with being a book about excessive drug use it is also about the American dream. Usually this comes as Thompson reminiscing on the failures of the 1960â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s counterculture movement to bring any actual change. People of that era had thought that proliďŹ c drug use could be an answer to societies problems and Thompson gives his character so many drugs

The Rolling Stones â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sticky Fingers (1971)

in order to prove that this sentiment is false. Some have made similarities between Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drug use in this book and the excess witnessed in The Great Gatsby half a century before; a book that also discusses the American Dream. It is certainly a fantastic book that will appeal to any interested in the era or the American Dream.

Sticky Fingers is the ninth album by British blues-rock band The Rolling Stones, released in 1971. The album was their ďŹ rst released in the 70â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and was a signiďŹ cant release because of it. With the break up of The Beatles, the death of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, and the decline of Bob Dylan; it seemed none of the best 60â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bands were going to survive the new decade. The Stones unfortunately didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end up staying consistently great past 1972, but this album was so good in its day, it made most people believe that they would. The album is an extremely high quality and consistent work that has since gone on to be considered one of their best records. The ďŹ rst half is full of famous Stones songs like Brown Sugar, Wild Horses and Can You Hear Me Knocking?. Brown Sugar is one of the Stones most famous song at this point and deservingly so, the riff is nothing less than classic and the Saxophone Solo adds to the song so much more than a guitar solo would have. Another

truly fantastic work on this side is Sway, a song that feels like it has no structure but manages to bring so much punch. The second half is slower, more blues songs; still fantastic though, maybe even better than the ďŹ rst half. The album was in many ways a departure from the Stonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; previous works; the songs are tidier and less rocky, the Rolling Stones at their heights were able to replicate the feelings of the time and Sticky Fingers is no exception to this. The early 70â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s saw a move away from the hard, explosive blues of the sixties and instead, the most popular work was country rock and singer songwriter work (except for prog and metal, though it was an eclectic time) and the Stones successfully harnessed these movements into a fantastic album.

Walking down a countr y lane the other day, I saw my farming friend, John Young, leaning on a gate and looking at some of his prize cattle. “A fine herd you have there, John,” I remarked. “Aye,” he said, “I’m proud of ‘em. Mind you I’m proud of my goats and sheep as well. They’re a fine lot!” “You have a large farm already,” said I. “Are you thinking of increasing your stock in the future?” “Maybe,” said John, “but I would increase some more than others. Now if I added as many sheep as half the number of cattle I have, and I added as many cattle as half the number of goats I have, and I added as many goats as half the number of sheep I have, I reckon I would be right. ‘Course, that would mean I had got twice as many cattle as I have now and it would mean I had got the same number of sheep as goats.” “And how many animals would you have then?” I asked. “I would have three hundred and ninety-six all told,” said John. Question: How many of each animal has he got now?

The more you tr y to conceal your emotions the more obvious they will be – and the more likely that rivals and opponents will play on your fears. Better to let others know how you feel than give them an unnecessar y advantage. You will be easily provoked, especially if you think that someone is taking liberties at your expense. The only danger is that you will get the wrong end of the stick and make an enemy of one it would have been better to have as a friend.

The more you worry about your ability to complete a project or live up to a promise, the more likely you will be to make a mistake or misjudgment. Now is the time to keep a cool head – you have the knowledge and the know-how.

HOROSCOPES

TAURUS April 21 - May 20

Signs indicate that now is the time when you should tread carefully, and don’t make claims you cannot back up with facts, or someone who is secretly opposed to you may tr y to make you look foolish in front of those you respect. GEMINI May 21 - June 20

With so much planetar y activity, you are no doubt dreading upheavals on the work front. However, what happens next should bring a smile to your face, because in the long term it is almost certain to work in your favour. CANCER June 21 - July 22

You can’t do ever ything – well, being a Leo you probably can – but would be ill-advised to tr y to do so just now while your emotions are being tugged this way and that. Simply tackle each task or problem one at a time. LEO July 23 - August 23

Associates will not be prepared to let you make your own decisions. The main reason is that they fear any changes you make will mean more work for them. Even if that is the case, it will pay you to stick with the status quo – for now. VIRGO August 24 - September 22

There are times when even Virgoans lose their cool. Therefore, if your emotions do get the better of you, causing you to act without thinking, make amends the moment you regain your senses – and protect a relationship. LIBRA September 23 - October 22

You may start yo have second thoughts about some of your aims and ambitions. Don’t change a thing because you will only have to change back again later when you realise that your doubts were misplaced. You’re a Libra – have faith. SCORPIO October 23 - November 22

For the next few days stay away from controversy, keep bad news to a minimum and try not to get caught up in other people’s problems. Yours may be one of the most robust signs, but even Scorpios need recover y time. SAGITTARIUS November 23 - December 21

There are likely to be times this week when you believe that someone has got it in for you, that you are being picked on for no other reason than your face doesn’t fit – later to prove how wide of the mark you can sometimes be. CAPRICORN December 22 - January 19

Play close attention to what – and who – is going on around you this week, especially when it come to money matters and business affairs. Focus on your finances, some kind of venture or investment could bring rewards later.

Album of the week MGMT- MGMT Last Tuesday saw the release of MGMT, the self-titled third album from the American psychedelic rock band. MGMT are most famous for their song ‘Kids’ released in 2008, the song has, since its release, become one of the most recognizable tunes of the last few years. With this LP, the

band are aiming for a more complex sound, the band said in January that they: ‘are not trying to make music that everyone understands the first time they hear it’. The first single from the album Alien Days showed definite promise, the album is definitely worth a try.

Business of the week EW Technologies EW Technologies is a water treatment company with an office in Kilkenny. The company will soften your water, provide filters for drinking water, and install water coolers in offices. The company offers good quality services with a great staff and at great prices. Hard water is a serious problem in Ireland

and most people are not aware just how easily the problem can be fixed. As Yvonne Carroll from Tipperary wrote: ‘I am so impressed with EWT follow-ups and the results I have seen in my house… Since having the softener installed I no longer have any limescale build up.’

Book of the week Lee Child- Never Go Back Another year another bloody Jack Reacher book. It seems there still getting more popular even when we’re at book 18. As the Daily Express wrote: ‘It is said that a Jack Reacher novel is bought every four seconds somewhere in the world’. At this point the series has

become as guilty pleasure as they get, though they are always guaranteed to bring some enjoyment. They’re like meeting an old friend, sometimes everything works out and you have a great time and sometimes it doesn’t. This year we all get a relative

success; at the start of the novel Reacher has just arrived in Virginia to meet Susan Turner, the same thing he’s been trying to do since book 14. He finds her gone and so must track her down for yet another book, at least it’s still entertaining.

DVD release of the week Iron Man 3 Iron Man 3 was the first Avengers Film following last year’s The Avengers and it manages to both be a fantastic new addition to the series while also being a

great stand alone action film. The film follows Robert Downey Junior who is now suffering from PTSD due to his near death experience at the end of The Aveng-

ers. Along with other insecurity and mistrust issues, he now has to face the characters most famous classic nemesis, The Mandarin. Though we’ve seen

many of these plot threads before, Iron Man 3’s execution of them is stellar and really elevates this film. It’s a great action movie that should definitely be seen.

College of the week Ormonde College Ormonde College Ormonde College of Further Education, located just off the Parade in Kilkenny is one of the best university experiences one can have in our fabulous City. With courses ranging from Fine Art to Beauty Studies to Nursing; and degrees that are internationally recognized, there is no reason not to

attend Ormond College. The college has a highly skilled and caring staff that will attend to all of your educational needs and a friendly student base. Ormonde College is simply a wonderful university experience that should definitely be considered, whether you are just out of school or a mature student.

KILKENNY REPORTER 18 9 2013

Splinter Cell: Blacklist Splinter Cell: Blacklist is the newest game in the Splinter Cell series, released last month to critical acclaim. It is a sequel to 2010’s mediocre Splinter Cell: Conviction and follows protagonist Sam Fisher as he hunts down terrorists and attempts to stop the Blacklist Count-

down before it reaches zero. The game takes a departure from the pure action of Conviction and instead decides to go back to the classic Splinter Cell formula from the original games. The result is a much more engaging experience that is better than its predecessor in almost every way. One looking for a stealth experience today should give this one a try. and is certainly worth a look.

App of the week Street Fighter II Collection Street Fighter II, originally released in 1991, was extremely influential in the rise of fighting games in the early 90’s and is one of the genre’s seminal titles. Very few games can rival Street Fighter II within its specific genre and as such, the game has aged very well. The conversion to the ipod works

surprisingly well in replicating the original experience while minimizing the loss of depth inherent with the platform. The game is a 2D fighting game built for two players; each player can control a plethora of different characters and each characters has a load of different moves and abilities. It is one of the best examples of easy to learn, hard to master and is overall a fantastic game.

Film of the week Rush Rush is a new biographical film directed by Ron Howard and starring Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Daniel Bruhl (Inglorious Basterds) and Olivia Wilde (Tron Legacy). The film tells the story of the rivalry between

1970’s formula 1 stars James Hunt and Nikki Lauda, primarily in the 1976 world championship. The film manages to be both a fantastic character piece and an accurate, exciting portrayal of Formula 1 driving. As Nikki says

at the start, there are twenty-five formula 1 drivers in the world and two die every year so the movie can become gruesome in parts but it is certainly worth a look even if you don’t like racing (I don’t).

Event of the week Event- Halves at the Set Theatre Halves is an Irish band that perform alternative electro-rock and have recently received their second album, Boa Howl, last July. The band have a tendency to wear their influences on their sleeves (opening track Drumhunter just sounds so much like Bloom by

Takeaway of the Week Stoney Kebabish Stoney Kebabish is a take away restaurant located in Stoneyford. The place holds an eclectic menu with Indian, kebabs, and Pizza to name just a few things. The portions are massive, the prices reasonable, and the sauces rich and creamy. The location is humble but the people inside go above

and beyond what one would normally expect from a take away. Take Away food obviously isn’t going to be healthy no matter where you get it so on a night that you get it you might as well treat yourself to the fullest extent and I can think of no where better than the Stoney Kebabish.

Radiohead that it’s impossible for me to enjoy) but at the end of the day they’re basically alright. The gig will also see local band, The Cold Draw perform, who seem to be opening for lots of people these days. The gig is next Friday for free at the Set Theatre.

SEVEN WAYS TO STAY FIT

THROUGH AUTUMN

In summer, finding an excuse to exercise outdoors is easy – but not so much when the days get colder. So here are seven ways to keep your workout mojo firing high when the mercury drops Set your goals You need two different sets of goals to stick to autumnwinter training. Firstly, micro-goals, which are the superachievable kind, such as ‘This week I’ll run 500m longer than usual on Thursday, or will complete two 25-minute home workouts before the weekend’. Secondly, mid-term goals that are also aspirational, like entering a mid-winter fun run or adventure race that you’ll have to commit to a training program for. Try Australia’s Greatest Athlete

(July), or City2Surf (August). Top tip: rope in a friend (or team) to enter alongside you and watch those motivation levels soar. Get your mind in the mood As long as you think, “Brain then brawn”, you’ll always make it out the door. Getting yourself psyched up for a great session not only guarantees you’ll actually feel motivated

enough to arrive at your session, you’ll get more out of it. Morning exerciser? Use music to hype yourself up. Pop your iPod on as you drag on your joggers, or change your alarm to your favourite pump-up tune (Eye Of The Tiger, anyone?). If you’re an evening workout warrior, watch some cool workout clips on YouTube to get some new ideas and build a little pre-session excitement! Love your lounge room On days when bad weather (or bad motivation) strikes, be prepared with a go-to lounge room workout you can do in the great indoors. Even something as simple as 50 repetitions of all the basics – squats, lunges, pushups,

dips, hip raises, jumps and crunches – will get your heart pumping, boost conditioning and get the happy hormones flowing. Layer up We’re talking training gear here. Dress yourself in a number of thin workout layers in good quality fabrics (merino wool is excellent) and heading out into the cold becomes a much more pleasant (and motivating) experience. To start, I recommend a few under shirts, an outer layer, gloves and a headband that covers your ears. Treat with heat For super chilly days, or when you’re experiencing muscle cramping from training from

earlier training, treat yourself to a workout that will have you dreaming of warm, sunny days such as Power or Bikram Yoga. This form of exercise will have you sweating the calories in heated room full of fellow yogis, helping to lengthen, stretch and tone your muscles ahead of summer. It’s a mid-winter holiday without the travel time and something you’ll look forward to, rather than dread, all day long. Train with a group If you’re really struggling to rise for an early- morning run, book yourself into a session at one of the new-wave group training studios popping up around the country. It’s not all about Cross Fit or

Les Mills anymore – functional small group training gyms are the new black when it comes to scoring a personal training experience at a fraction of the price. Check out AGOGA, Damien Kelly Studios, Rollex Health, or Flow Athletic in Sydney, or search for similar groups in your home town. Lunch break blast Lunch time training is one of winter’s greatest pleasures. Seeing the daylight not only makes you feel better about the shorter, darker days, you’ll improve your concentration for the afternoon, get your daily dose of bone-strengthening vitamin D and make your workmates jealous. What more could you ask?

OUR TOP TIPS TO BEAT THE

AUTUMN BLUES 1) Be a morning person Lack of sunlight as the days become shorter and darker can trigger seasonal affective disorder (SAD), leaving you feeling depressed and tired. According to neuroscientist Professor Russell Foster, a key way to ward off this condition is to get outside for 30 minutes between 6am and 10am when daylight is strongest. “Even on an overcast day, light is 500 to 1000 times brighter outside than in your office or home,” he explains. “Research shows exposure to early morning light helps reset our internal body clock and fight SAD.” 2) Sort out your sleep pattern Waking up exhausted and craving more sleep is common in autumn. Longer hours of darkness cause increased levels of melatonin – the sleep hormone – making you feel sleepy in the day, but restless at night. We often make the problem worse by overriding our natural sleep/wake systems by

drinking coffee to stay alert, and using alcohol to sedate us at night. Instead, stick to a routine of going to bed and getting up at the same time. And try a natural sleep remedy that won’t leave you drowsy in the morning, such as Potter’s Herbals Nodoff Mixture (£6.79, Boots).

3) Know your stuff and get seasonal food savvy Shorter days and lack of sunshine reduces our body’s production of serotonin, the ‘happy hormone’. This makes us crave serotonin-boosting carbs such as pasta, potatoes and rice, which can quickly pile on the pounds. Resist the urge and tuck into these low-fat seasonal treats, which are rich in diseasefighting antioxidants: Swede, sweet potato and pumpkins – these bright orange veg are all great sources of vitamin C, fibre and the antioxidant, betacarotene. Apples and pears – apples contain heart-healthy

by local villagers. It’s now available in the UK in powder form. Sprinkle Minvita Baobab Superfruit Powder (£14.69, Holland & Barrett) on to yoghurts and cereals to kick-start your day.

flavonoids – some of the most potent antioxidants around – while pears are rich in soluble fibre, which helps boost digestion and lowers cholesterol. Figs – a high-fibre treat, figs are also a good source of calcium.

4) Have a girly get-together Countless studies show that having a good network of friends can ward off depression, but at this time of year it’s easy to curl up in front of the TV rather than see mates. Make it your mission to go out at least once a week. An evening watching a feel-good film or just having a good gossip over homecooked food is a guaranteed way to make you feel better about life. 5) Set up a goal With summer over and Christmas still so far away, it can be hard to feel motivated during autumn. To combat this, psychologist Avy Joseph recommends starting by achieving some-

thing small such as finally reading that book you’ve fancied for ages (even if it’s Fifty Shades of Grey!). After that it’s time to set a bigger goal, such as getting into yoga or learning a new language. 6) Fake daylight with a clever clock Wake up with a dawn simulator that floods your bedroom with ‘daylight’. Studies show these sunlight simulators can boost your internal body clock, helping you wake up ready to face the

day. (from £49.95 at lumie. com). 7) Scoff one of the latest superfoods With an impressive cocktail of vitamins and minerals that offer six times more vitamin C than oranges, six time more antioxidants than blueberries, twice as much calcium as milk and more iron than red meat – no wonder Baobab is being hailed as the latest healthboosting superfood! Traditionally grown in East Africa, the fruit has been valued for thousands of years

8) Rev up your sex life Studies suggest we feel sexier in summer. Sunlight raises levels of feel-good hormones serotonin and dopamine, and of sex-boosting testosterone, putting you in the mood for love. Avoid an autumn libido crash by mixing up your routine. Don’t wait until 11pm when you can barely keep your eyes open – schedule it for 8pm after the kids go to bed, or at lunchtime on the weekend. “And if you always wait for your partner to instigate sex, you’re missing out,” adds sex expert Tracey Cox. “Initiating for a change can kick-start the most sluggish libido, as you get a buzz from being in the power position.” boosters).

Golf Notes – Callan

Captains Prize MARTIN Pendergast produced some superb scoring to capture his first Captains prize after two rounds of brilliant consistency. Paul Cashin, this years Captain, used this opportunity to change the format to two full 18 hole rounds and the consequence was that Martin was the most worthy of victors. In difficult conditions on

Sunday Martin produced a round of 72 which was good in the wind and rain which battered the course. His combined total of 136 following his opening 64 was 4 shots better than Michael Kealys second placed finish. Michael also played superbly and but for Martins brilliance would have been victorious but it was not to be. In third place came Jim Kirby who some years ago had the honour of presenting the

award now was the recipient of third prize following a combined total of 141. Jim had the best round of the day on Sunday last with a 69 which demonstrates the difficulty of the conditions and also how well Jim battled to improve his finishing position. Jeff Lynch was a worthy recipient of the gross prize with some excellent shot making on both days. Michael Murphy from Kilkenny played solidly over

the 36 holes and claimed fourth place with Brian Cullen in fifth. It was a wonderful celebration of golf in Callan over the two weeks and when all the play finished Martin was the one left standing with a brilliant display and a fantastic honour of taking home the blue riband of awards in the club. It was a day remember for Paul and his family who enjoyed the afternoon and

evenings fare and two rounds of golf which Martin will never forget. Well done to Paul on hosting the event and thanks to all for making it such a memorable one.
