+RZFDQ,Ă&#x20AC;QGDKHDOWK\ZHLJKWORVVSODQIRUGLDEHWLFV" Shedding those pounds offers great benefits to diabetics If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re overweight and have type 2 diabetes, a healthy weight loss can bring wonderful rewards. It can even get you off insulin and other medications. Even a loss of 10 to 15lbs can give you more energy, lower your blood sugar, improve cholesterol levels and make it easier to move around without getting out of breath. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to work with your doctor or diabetes care team, because as the pounds come off, your blood sugar, insulin and other medications will need special attention.

Here are some top tips to make your healthy weight loss plan a success: Record your eating habits. Keep a notebook with you for a week and jot down everything you eat and drink, how much and at what time. Remember, this is for your eyes only, so be honest with yourself. This will give you valuable information to help you set realistic goals for a healthy weight loss. Achieving small goals will give you the confidence to continue and even set a slightly higher one the next time.

Grace Fields, Motivation Weight Management, 10 Ormonde Street, Kilkenny

Change your food habits Using the information you have gathered about yourself consider small changes you can make to your daily food habits. If you snack on crisps or sweets, for instance, could you swap these for a piece of fresh fruit or a small handful of berries? Make your own popcorn â&#x20AC;&#x201C; donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t add any fat or salt â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and keep a bowl handy for when you get the munchies. What are your portion sizes like? Do you sometimes go for second helpings, just because something tastes good? Your food record will point you in the right direction by helping you to make small but significant changes towards a healthy weight loss. Ready, steady, cook! You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to give up your favourite recipes to achieve a

healthy weight loss â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just adapt them by reducing the amount of fat, sugar and salt and increasing the fibre in them. Replace some of the meat in lasagne, shepherdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pie and casseroles with pulses such as beans or lentils, which are low in fat and high in fibre. Grill, bake, steam or poach food rather than fry in fat. Use low-fat dairy products such as skimmed milk, low fat cheese and yogurt, fromage frais and light crème fraiche. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop me now! From time to time you will face unforeseen challenges, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let these get in the way of achieving your goals. Boredom is a common barrier to healthy weight loss, but instead of turning to food, distract yourself by going ffor a walk or a swim instead. Try to p plan ahead. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have time to p prepare meals in the evenings, batchccook at the weekend and freeze indivvidual portions for during the week. M Motivation has clinics nationwide inccluding a clinic on Ormonde Street, Kilkenny. The Irish company is almost K 20 years at the forefront of weight 2 management.

)LOP %OXH5XLQ Revenge can be a dirty, dark business. No act ever taken in the name of vengeance is without some kind of aftereffect – usually serving as only an escalation of the act that preceded it. Revenge can be an unholy toxin that poisons everything – and director Jeremy Saulnier’s new film Blue Ruin understands that better than most. Based on an original script by Saulnier, Blue Ruin begins following an aimless, disheveled drifter named Dwight (Macon Blair) who has lived on the outskirts of society ever since his parents were murdered years before. His life finds purpose, however, when he learns that the man held responsible for the crime is being released from prison early. Bloodthirsty for redemption, Dwight makes a plan to kill the man who took everything away from him, and must deal with the critical and dangerous consequences that action leads him towards. As evidenced by the tight 90-minute run time, Blue

7KH4XLHW2QHV There’s a battle brewing over the future of horror, and whether you know it or not, you are taking a side with every ticket you buy. For decades, horror has been building a bad reputation thanks to countless sloppy entries in franchises that offered little more than loads of gore. But a few filmmakers are digging in to show audiences that horror can be something more, something both haunting and poignant. With The Quiet Ones, director John Pogue is favoring story and human drama over buckets of blood, and the results are a film that is as creepy as it is compelling. Inspired by real events, The Quiet Ones nests its tale of terror in 1974 England, where a respected professor at Oxford University risks his reputation (and his life) to work out a disturbing experiment. Jared Harris stars as Professor Joseph Coupland, who believes that a long-held belief in possession and poltergeists is a basic misunderstanding of how the human mind operates. Coupland suspects that a mentally ill mind can essentially manifest the paranormal activity associated with hauntings. He

aims to prove it by curing Jane Harper (Olivia Cooke), a young woman who has been plagued by such phenomena for as long as she can remember. Admittedly, The Quiet Ones isn’t as soul-shatteringly terrifying as Jaws or The Exorcist, but Pogue does set up a film that is tense and, at moments, truly terrifying. The film boasts both some chilling visual effects, unnerving build-ups, effective jump

scares, and best of all a disturbing narrative enhanced by its basis in real life. All in all, The Quiet Ones is a satisfyingly spooky horror offering that tenderly unspools its tension while offering a narrative that is truly enthralling. It’s a promising addition to Hammer Films’ continued resurrection, preceded by 2012’s Woman in Black, and to be followed by the upcoming Jack The Ripper tale, Gaslight.

Ruin is lean and tightly-paced, though there are the occasional slow-downs. The film’s atypical approach to the classic revenge plot – focusing more on the consequences of the revenge than the revenge itself – leaves the story wholly unpredictable, as it’s never quite clear what Dwight’s next step is going to be. There is also a great rising action lent to the film not just through the escalation of the drama but also the slow reveal of answers to an important

mystery: whyy Dwight’s parents were killed in the first place. There’s a special challenge in recommending a movie like Blue Ruin, as appreciation for it directly comes from the fact that its darkness is able to creep and lodge itself under your skin. All the same, it’s a movie made with terrific filmmaking and storytelling technique, and solidifies Jeremy Saulnier as a director to keep an eye on.

Business of the week The Ormonde Hotel The Ormonde Hotel is one of our city’s best hotels: it has the perfect location, staff, facilities and more, it is an experience to stay in above all else. There is simply nowhere else that matches the wedding experience of the Ormonde, from the Kings Ballroom to the excellent staff who do more than follow your requests but pre-empt

them; there will always be a great day for you here. The conference facilities in the hotel are unparalleled with a modern and cordial service guaranteed. The facilities are all completely modern: The spa especially stands out as well as the incredible restaurant. I highly recommend The Ormonde Hotel.

DVD of the week Anchorman 2 Anchorman 2 is the sequel to the legendary 2004 comedy Anchorman and is a worthy sequel to the original even if it doesn’t quite manage to top it. The original film is a totally unique product with its humour coming from surreal and zany diatribes about talking dogs and news team street fights as opposed to the usual fare and the sequel continues to explore these aspects. The big joke in

the sequel is that after being fired from his network Ron (Will Ferrell) joins the first twentyfour hour news show and starts to fill his time slots with car chases and patriotic pandering as opposed to actually important reporting, basically Ron Burgundy becomes the creator of Fox News. The jokes all hit home throughout and the film is one of the best comedies of the year.

Festival of the week Kilkenny Roots Festival The Kilkenny Roots Festival is almost upon us, taking place from next Friday to Monday the festival is guaranteed to be one of the best days of the year in Kilkenny. The festival takes place across three days across dozens of different venues across the county; it’s not centralized like most

atypical music festivals but the spread out nature of it gives the festival the feeling that the whole city is in celebration, not just some muddy field in Laois or wherever. I highly recommend people take part in the Kilkenny Roots festival.

App of the week Duolingo

Duolingo is a free educational app that will help you learn languages in a clean and effective manner. Until recently one would have to use the duolingo website to make use of its fantastic services but no more. The app divides languages into small sections that all form together into a tree like structure where you often get to pick what you want to study next.

Book of the week Audrey Magee- The Undertaking The Undertaking is the debut novel by Irish author Audrey Magee that came out in February. It is a love story, set in Germany during World War 2 that commences when two people who haven’t met marry each other. The man is in Russia and is desperate to get away, he marries for the guaranteed ten days of Honeymoon leave, the

woman wants a widow’s pension; it’s a mutually beneficial agreement. Problems arise though, when the two genuinely fall for each other after meeting, now Peter must join the German army to a guaranteed victory in Stalingrad and he can go back to his wife, it doesn’t end well. It’s a good read, I recommend it.

The app is designed so you can use it for five minutes or five hours and obtain results every time, it’s the sort of app you’re supposed to use every day in order to learn. The course is easy, fun and completely free with no ads. Languages now available include: Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian and English. It’s an app that I have used personally for months and found it extremely helpful.

Lifestyle & Living FTL: Faster than Light

FTL is a new Roguelike game (literally meaning like the game ‘Rogue’ from 1980) that has recently received a huge, free update; giving the game dozens of hours more content. The game tasks you with choosing a spaceship and travelling from one side of this galaxy to another to deliver an urgent message to the Federation (the story isn’t important to be honest). You are given an isometric view of your ship and multiple sections to monitor (engines, guns, shields etc) that can be upgraded, you can build your ship to be however you want by the end. You fight other ships using guns, mind control, hacking and even boarding where you send your crew members in to eliminate theirs. The game is highly randomized, every time you play (and you will probably play it at least 50-200 times) you can get extremely lucky and receive incredibly powerful weapons and tech in Sector 1 or be unlucky and get blown up just as fast. It’s a highly fun and addictive game and one I recommend.

Song of the week John Murry- The Ballad of the Pajama Kid The newest single by John Murry is an interesting one, the Mississippi musician is clearly inspired by Ireland as his music video was shot primarily in Kilkenny and Dublin but the song puts askew the roots sound with the implementation of an electric guitar, distorting what we expect tremendously. The closest comparison I can think of for the song is Knocking on Heaven’s

Door, which I’d say was a huge influence but the song does so much more different that any people calling it a copy would be wasting their time. The best part of the song for me is definitely the aforementioned electric guitar, it’s not one of the main instruments but its use for texture emphasises the morose atmosphere of the song. I recommend Ballad of the Pajama Kid.

Gig of the week Barrence Whitfield & the Savages

Barrence Whitfield and the Savages are an R&B and Soul band, most famous for their energetic

and explosive leader, Barry White (renamed Barrence Whitfield as to not be confused with the other Barry White). They have been together since the 1980s and have released eleven records together, the latest

of which came out last year. They are a great live band, famous for their gigs and are definitely worth seeing; they will be playing at The Set Theatre on the 3rd and 4th May, starting at 10pm. Tickets are €15.

TV of the week Mad Men Season 7A Well that was depressing. After just finishing this season’s second episode I can confirm that this is going to be a depressing journey, not unlike the final season of the previous show Weiner worked on, The Sopranos. Also worth noting: Both shows started their final seasons with

Album of the Week DJ Rashad- Double Cup Last weekend saw the tragic news that Chicago electronic musician DJ Rashad had died, he was 34. He had become famous in the last few years for his work in Footwork, a genre of high BPM dance music that uses distorted vocal samples and hypnotic repetition, it had gained mass traction in the UK over the last few years. This can partly explain why Rashad was signed to the

London Hyperdub label and also why his sound is influenced by genres like Jungle and UK Garage. DJ Rashad had been working in the genre for years and was able to twist and turn what we expected from it constantly. It’s a tragedy that Rashad is dead but people can rest assured that he left something behind that perfectly encapsulates his work up to that point.

references to California as purgatory. Thankfully I can now confirm: The seventh season of Mad Men is really great, definitely better than Season 6 and matching the greatness of 4 and 5 (though some people swear by seasons 1-3). I highly recommend the first half of Season 7, the second half will come out this time next year.

Charming, elegant, stylish, romantic and merger-making Libra Your ruling planet is Venus, your best day of the week is Friday and your colours are gentle hues of blues, pinks and violets. Plutoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passage through Capricorn until 2024 is shaking your very foundations. Mesmerising, insightful, determined, resourceful and focused Scorpio Your ruling planets are Mars and Pluto, your best day of the week is Tuesday and your colours deep, deep red and black. Saturn is moving through your sign until late 2014. View this as a long period of self-investment. True, you may need to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;throw a wobblyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, you might also have reason to doubt the integrity of someone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s professing passion for a job but whom you feel is not up to the task in hand. A major problem here is that you may need to take on more responsibility if a calamity is to be averted. A roughly decade-long cycle begins again this week. Thirst for learning and for adventure will surely increase. This could be driven by financial need: awareness that if you improve your knowledge base you could command greater earnings. Quirky, determined, logical, eccentric and freedom-loving Aquarius. Your ruling planets are Saturn and Uranus. Your best day of the week is Saturday and your best colours are electric or deep, rich blue and anything metallic. Saturn is passing through another of the Fixed signs, Scorpio until late 2014. Intuitive, sensitive, big-picture thinking, kind and thoughtful Pisces. Your ruling planets are Jupiter and Neptune. Your best day of the week is Thursday and your best colours are those of the sea: blue, green, lavender and silver. Slow moving Neptune is in your sign through to 2024.

There are few people in the world of cinema with worse luck than Fargo’s Jerry Lundegaard; once he begins his plan he lunges from one disaster to another endlessly until everything completely falls apart. Of course he is at fault to a certain extent; his plan is idiotic on its face and how he deals with each problem as they come never solves anything just delays them, but the people he finds are even worse at their jobs than him and in the end bring about his ruin. Fargo is a Coen Brothers film, released in 1996 and is considered one of their best. The film is set in the US states of Minnesota and North Dakota, Scandinavian influenced states near the Canadian border that are always cold and always dark. Snow is omnipresent in this film, the first shot of the film shows the car of our main character slowly come into visibility behind a wall of snow and wind and it makes the world the film is set in extremely claustrophobic and entrapping. The film’s plot is about a man called Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy) who conscripts two guys played by Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare to kidnap his wife so he can collect the ransom from her rich father, a man who seems to despise Jerry. Naturally everything that could have gone wrong went wrong and by the

:LOOLDP%XWOHU<HDWV$PRQJ6FKRRO&KLOGUHQ  3W,, What must be emphasised about this poem is unquestionably the language; there really is nothing like Yeats and Among School Children is one of his best written poems by far. Every line just flows perfectly into the next, even with words passing ten letters long he implements them seamlessly into these short lines of poetry that is clearly the work of a genius. Yeats was always one of the best poets for describing the morose contortions of old age and Among School Children is bursting with extremely vivid wordplay on the matter. A favourite of mine would be a particular description of Maud Gonne who: ‘took a mess of shadows for its meat’ and who was ‘Hollow of cheek as though it drank the wind’ it’s so vivid and unique yet the language is of the simplest kind. Yeats was never one to use complicated language but he was a fan of complicated references. Ancient Greece culture is referenced profusely: Ledaean bodies, Quattrocento and the golden thighs of Pythagros all appear in Among School Children though for the most part one can understand the reference through context. Even given this I would recommend procuring some sort of help for understanding this poem; maybe you can guess that Yeats’ Ledaean body is Maud Gonne or exactly Yeats was saying with: ‘Honey of generation had betrayed’ but otherwise try a guide or something to that liking; after all this poem was written for upper class Irish and English in the 1920s who would be knowledgeable of both Greek history and philosophy as well as the highly publicized

end of the film seven people are dead. From there it is up to police officer Marge Gunderson to piece this absurd scenario together. Life is cheap in this world; many films portray the fallibility of life in different ways but very few do it like this film; Fargo isn’t mourning the fact or being angered by it, Fargo is simply amused. The film is deeply comedic, as black as you can get, you can’t help but laugh at the antics of the two idiot criminals as they spill blood more often than they stop for petrol, and one especially dark scene has their kidnaped woman running into the forest blindfolded and falling over to the laughing of Buscemi, it is one of the darkest films the duo have ever made. The film seems to take what looks like the most boring part of the entire world and throws these fantastical characters and circumstances upon it, creating this surreallity by way of contrast; The poster of Fargo advertised it as: ‘A homespun murder story’ and it is an apt description. Fargo is a film that takes these extremely convulsive elements: an idiotic kidnapping plot, a bunch of psychopaths with guns, snowy claustrophobia, a lot of money, and throws them together; inviting us to watch them all explode. It is one of the best films ever made and I highly recommend it.

personal life of Yeats. The final stanza of this poem is one of Yeats’ best with his final line being one of the most famous in the history of poetry. Yeats imagines a world of pure art where ‘The body is not bruised to pleasure soul’ where the likes of Aristotle can work without the knowledge that all his accomplishments won’t all be born of despair. It’s a fantasy, it’s the world that all this great art can create, and whether you believe it to be optimistic or pessimistic is up to you. The final two lines: ‘O body swayed to music, O brightening glance,/ How can we know the dancer from the dance?’ is completely out there in Western poetry and can be interpreted differently, some would say when the dancer dances then this ideal is present, they are art, but the dance ends and they then revert to simply being human, it’s for you to decide. The poem is ambiguous, and how you decide to interpret it can change the overall meaning entirely. Among School Children perfectly weaves tragedy and idealism, it encapsulates both the inherent struggle of life and the reasons we continue on with it, it’s one of Yeats’ best works.

The duo that was Suicide were both a great deal older than the vast majority of the New York Punk scene, Martin Rev having just turned 30 and Alan Vega was 39 when the album came out, this is important because it means they both had the chance to experience the Rockabilly music of the 50s that many consider to be the foundation of Punk in the US. Whether Suicide fits into the genre of punk at all is debatable, they were one of the first bands to advertise themselves as punk all the way back in 1970 but the actual sound of the album is more reminiscent of rockabilly with synthesizers than anything other bands were doing at the time. There really is nothing like this album, to the extent that it overshadows the entire rest of their discography that is almost as good but nowhere near as unique. The sound is completely minimalist, synth lines are simple and repetitive, often it’s just a two second loop with a little drum machine that Alan Vega sings over for two, four or on one song, ten minutes at a time. Vega’s lyrics are something else and perfectly set us up for this grimy, miserable world that the music takes place in. They tell of the depressed and filthy New York City of the 1970s and are bursting with nihilism. The most famous song Frankie Teardrop, famous partly for influencing Bruce Springsteen, tells of a man who mercy kills his family because his job can’t pay for food and they’re getting evicted. The song makes use of these rancid, piercing screams from Alan Vega that follow plot points in Frankie’s story, most artists would follow this kind of burst

of emotion with a change of sound, even just to make the rhythm louder and more intense but the synths of Frankie Teardrop beat on irrelevant of what has happened or will happen, in many ways being used as a symbol of society itself. The repetitive nature of the rhythms make them incredibly hypnotic, it immerses you in this dark, guttery and industrial world, you are perfectly captivated for the albums 32 minutes. Despite not charting anywhere, the album has gone on to be extremely influential on the synthpop and industrial music scenes that both became extremely popular in the 80s and 90s, they were one of the first bands to use synthesizers as the sole instrument and how they used it to make something so simple was also unprecedented. Suicide’s first album is the perfect encapsulation of New York in the late 70s; dirty, cynical and constantly moving: I highly recommend it.

ublin, April 18, 2014 –The Audi A3*, the premium compact bestseller from the brand with the four rings, is the 2014 World Car of the Year. This is the second overall title for Audi in the ten year history of the World Car of the Year Awards as the Audi A6 won the inaugural overall title in 2005. The third generation of the Audi A3 is now officially confirmed as a world beater. It overcame the challenge from 23 other cars to win the prestigious World Car of the Year title in 2014. The A3 was voted as the winner by an international jury panel comprising 69 toplevel automotive journalists from 22 countries around the world. Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG, said: “The Audi A6* was the first ever winner of this award and we are delighted that the Audi A3 has repeated that achievement by being voted 2014 World Car of the Year. The Audi A3 showcases Audi’s technical competence in all aspects of car making, not least in the areas of lightweight technology, drivetrain, mobile infotainment and driver assistance systems. This major

award win is an achievement that the whole company can celebrate”. The new Audi A3 is available as a 3 door*, Sportback*, Cabriolet* and Sedan*. It is powered by a range of TFSI gasoline and TDI diesel engines. The A3 Sportback can also be ordered as a g-tron*, which can be operated using e-gas generated by Audi, natural gas, or gasoline – when powered by e-gas, the A3 Sportback g-tron travels CO2-neutral. Later this year, the A3 Sportback will also be available as an e-tron*, whose plug-in hybrid drive enables journeys of up to 50 kilometres in all-electric mode. Audi is offering customers in Germany green electricity – Audi energy. The cooperating partner is the Hamburg energy provider LichtBlick E. The power all comes from renewable energy sources and is generated exclusively at hydro-electric power stations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. With Audi energy, the A3 e-tron is totally emission-free when operated electrically. Audi can look back on a 16-year success story with the A3. In 1996, the first generation of

the model series established an entirely new market segment – the premium compact class. With the second generation, which followed in 2003, the brand extended its lead with the addition of a Cabriolet to the familiar 3 door and Sportback body styles. The third A3 generation is available in four body styles following the further addition of the Sedan.

won seven titles at the World Car of the Year Awards:

With this win for the Audi A3, Audi has maintained its position as the manufacturer with the most World Car of the Year titles. The brand with the four rings has previously won three World Performance Car titles, two World Car Design of the Year titles and the inaugural World Car of the Year title. In total Audi has

*ROI1RWHV Callan Cullen holds his nerve Callans Provincial Towns team entered the fray last Saturday and were involved in a thrilling match with Gowran. Led by John Doheny and Mick Murphy Callan secured an early advantage at home and when Larry Malone and JJ Murphy won in style in Gowran Callan were on the brink of qualification. Paddy Grace, Nigel Dagg,Pat O Keeffe and Denis Carey were narrowly beaten leaving the match tied at 4-4 until Brian Cullen secured the win with a great display closing out his match on the sixteenth green. The teams manager, Paul Norris, was delighted with the display and is already looking forward to the next round where an away tie with Waterford awaits. Thanks to all panelists for their dedication and preparation for this win, all the caddies and supporters who turned up and well done to all the players for putting in a big effort to get through. The Duggan Cup side had shown the Provincial Towns team the way forward with a fantastic win over Kilkenny with the tightest of margins between the sides completing a brilliant week for the Callan teams. The Barton Cup team are preparing for their clash with Rosslare next weekend while the Pierce Purcell team ahve been practicing hard also in preparation for their qualifier which is being held in Calln on the weekend of the 17th and 18th of May. There are many oppurtunities to play a part in Callan s inter club teams in 2014 and if you wish to be considered please contact the relevant managers through the office as soon as you can.

Junior Classic A wonderful Easter weekend of golf in Callan Golf Club culminated with a wonderful scoring burst to take first prize. Liz Cashin, Ollie O Connor, Niall Brett and Pat O Keeffe were playing very well and sure to be in the prizes until Pat finished eagle,eagle for a dream end to the round and catapulted his team into first place winning on a countback. It was a brilliant effort as over 70 teams competed for the beautiful prizes on offer. Every cent raised will be ploughed back into the future of the club and the development of golf among our junior members. There is a vibrant junior section in our club and headed by Joe Cuddihy (Junior Officer) and Liz Cashin and a very active junior committee the club is in safe hands. Mick Fitzpatrick, Brian Cullen, Sean Bolger and Terry Campion were second with Christy Vaughan, Benny Butler, Ollie Fennelly and Johnnie Glendon in third. The top junior team involved were the ultra promising group of Therese Donnelly, Sean Donnelly, Blade O Gorman and Liam Hennessy proving that coaching, practicing and playing pays off. Sean Brett from Mullinahone won the raffle prize which was a fourball in Fota island. A full report along with pictures are available on Facebook and well worth a look. The juniors were in action in the Curragh when they competed in the Fred Daly Qualifier and while they did nt qualify Charlie Round, Dylan Dunphy, Robert Kerwick, Dylan Lanigan, Owen Scriven, Rory Lodge and Robert O Dwyer all did themselves proud. There will be coaching for junior members on Tuesday nights starting on the 6th of May at 7pm for one hour. All juniors over 5 and in primary school welcome to come along. It is a wonderful oppurtunity to learn the basics for budding golfers so please come along. Junior membership is open and a brilliant oppurtunity for children to learn a game for life in a club that supports its junior members. Thanks to all members for their wonderful support of this fundraising classic.

Keith and his staff provide wonderful per or post round meals and beverages upstairs so come along and enjoy the facilities that the club offers.
