HEALTH: A new study suggests the soundscape could have affected the mental health of 19th-century settlers. by James Gaines July 22, 2022

These details caught the imagination of Alex D. Velez, a paleoanthropologist with State University of New York at Oswego who studies the evolution of human hearing, and made him wonder: is there any truth to this idea? Now, a new paper by Velez published in Historical Archaeology suggests this eerie soundscape—the silence and the howling wind—could indeed have contributed to mental illness in settlers. It’s not much of a leap: research with modern subjects has shown that what we hear can exacerbate not only sleep, stress, and mental health problems, but even cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.

TG4, 24/08 @ 21:30; The untold story of Irish song The Laughing Boy, written by Brendan Behan in memory of Michael Collins. With an extraordinary afterlife as To Yelasto Paidi, it became the powerful left-wing anthem of resistance in Greece in the late Sixties. The film takes poet Theo Dorgan on an odyssey of his own, as he uncovers the truth of the story behind the song. It is a narrative that interweaves the tragic and bloody birth-pangs of both modern Ireland and modern Greece. But these histories are also bound together by something more profound and transcendent - the power of a song.

SATURDAY, MARCH 2,1974

THE IRISH PEOPLE- PAGE 3

The Minister for Justice, Mr. Cooney, last night appealed to the public to be prepared to stand up and be counted in their attitude to the Provisional IRA. And in this connection he urged that IRA collection boxes and newspapers should be ignored by all citizens loyal to the State. Speaking at a Fine Gael function in Listowel, the Minister warned: "There can be no compromise in the question of loyalty to the State on the one hand, and the giving of support to the IRA on its fronts, on the other hand." Mr. Cooney said the most potent weapon in the fight against the IRA was a "cold and antagonistic public opinion", directed against that body in whatever form it manifests itself. He warned that there were many front organisations for the Provisionals with meritorious titles using terms like civil rights, prisoners dependants and others. Those of us who believed in parliamentary democracy and who abhorred violence, must, by our personal attitudes to the IRA in any of its manifestations, make clear our abhorrence of their tactics, he said. "Each of us may be tested from time to time in a small way to show that we are prepared to stand up and be counted in this regard," Mr. Cooney went on.

U.S. Immigrant Visas Show Slight Rise The Visa Office of the U.S. State Department has issued its annual report, a copy of which was recently forwarded to the American Irish Immigration Committee in New York. During fiscal year 1973 (from July 1972 to June 1973) 972 U.S. immigrant visas were issued in Ireland. This figure represents a slight rise over the 1972 figure when 881 visas were issued, but is far below the 1964 figure of 6,328 visas. That was the final year before the 1965 U.S. Immigration Law went into effect. The number of non-immigrant or visitor's visas issued in Ireland in 1973 was 27,363, an increase of 2,000 over the 1972 figure. In 1964 only 8,307 visitor's visas were issued to Irishmen. Allowing for the fact that improved economic conditions in Ireland allow for an increased number of tourists to the U.S., such a figure gives rise to speculation that a fair number of Irishmen are using the visitor visa circuit to attempt to enter the U.S. Recent legislation and administration changes should cut down on this means of entry in the near future. The top ten countries sending immigrants to the U.S. in 1973 were the Philippines (27,229), Korea (22,514), China (21,052), Italy (21,026), India (12,768), Greece (10,824), Portugal (10,790), Great Britain (10,003), Yugoslavia (7,905) and Germany (5,785).

ISOLATED: Why do we get a buzz from being in large groups at festivals, jubilees and other public events? According to the social brain hypothesis, it’s because the human brain specifically evolved to support social interactions. Studies have shown that belonging to a group can lead to improved wellbeing and increased satisfaction with life.

Unfortunately though, many people are lonely or socially isolated. And if the human brain really did evolve for social interaction, we should expect this to affect it significantly. Our recent study, published in Neurology, shows that social isolation is linked to changes in brain structure and cognition – the mental process of acquiring knowledge – it even carries an increased risk of dementia in older adults.

WATER being cut off is a constant problem in the locality. Everyone should know, operating washing machines and electric showers, are a No No, when water is off. We have so many wet days, a barrel under the downpipe, would go a long way in getting you out of an emergency. The older generation, having children going to the well with a bucket and the younger ones with a sweet gallon, was always part of a day’s work. Turning the water back on, with full pressure and air in pipes, is a recipe for another break.

WASP: Female wasps inject their eggs into the caterpillars, number of eggs injected is about 20 but can be as many as 50. These eggs hatch into maggots that eat their host. The entire cycle from the wasp egg to the adult taking flight takes less than one month.

FLIES appear scarce this year, swallows are also down in numbers. In times past every household had breeding ground for maggots and flies. Now with hygiene and various disinfectants, their breeding grounds has been eliminated.

The first Fair will be held over the weekend of 30-31 July, 2022 where Irish traditional trades and craftspeople from all over the country will talk about and demonstrate their work. It'll be a family friendly weekend with old fashioned fairground games for the kids, food and entertainment and lots of traditional crafts for sale.

Ballylongford Mill is a collection of early nineteenth century industrial buildings on two-thirds of an acre in the middle of the village of Ballylongford, which comprises the old working port of the village.

It includes the five storey Mill, originally built as a grain drying store in 1846, the Creamery and Famine Hospital which both appear on the 1851 map of the village, and a large buried eighteenth century boat dock in the centre of the site, which will be excavated and reinstated as a dock for wooden boats. All of the buildings have been disused for a number of years, but work is about to start on the restoration of the buildings and walled yards which make up the old port of Ballylongford.

DAIL REPORT: Dáil Éireann - Volume 11 - 29 April, 1925

Mr. J. CROWLEY: I support Deputy Baxter's motion, and I would press upon the Executive the great necessity for immediate relief to farmers who have lost stock through disease. I am in a position to know as much as, or more than, any person, perhaps, in this Assembly, about mortality amongst cattle in Kerry, West Limerick and parts of Cork, but particularly in North Kerry, because I happen to be a veterinary surgeon and an inspector of dairies and cowsheds. Our firm are probably the largest buyers of hides and skins in County Kerry. I have been twenty years veterinary surgeon and about thirty years at the other business, and I can say confidently that during the time I remember—for the last thirty or thirty-five years—I have not seen as great a mortality amongst cattle as for the last three or four months. Thousands of yearlings have died and hundreds of milch cows are dying now. Many small uneconomic holders who were depending on the little money that a few yearlings—two, three or five—may bring at this time of the year, to pay rates and annuities, now cannot pay. Unless the State aids them, I can foresee an extremely busy time for the sub-sheriffs of County Kerry and other counties. In many cases, I believe, they will return: “Nothing to seize.” I believe that is the return just now in many cases in Kerry, because many of the small farmers have absolutely no stock left.

I can quote from statistics as to the execution of court judgments. During [511] the quarter ended March, 1925, in County Kerry there were, according to the return, 374 judgments executed. That fact speaks for itself. I know, in some cases in North Kerry, where the sub-sheriff seized the last cow belonging to a poor man. I saw him take from a small farmer in Listowel six cows out of ten for rates. I had myself to come to the rescue of some small uneconomic holders down there. I will quote the names and addresses of persons who have sustained losses in my district. These are cases that I can prove:—

Daniel Foran, Coolard, Listowel, lost 11 cows out of 14; lost all calves.

Patrick Kennelly, Dromin, Listowel, lost 8 cows out of 14; lost 8 young cattle out of 8.

John Lyons, Knockburrane, Lixnaw, lost 9 cows out of 24; lost 26 young cattle out of 26.

Michael Purtill, Kilcolgan, Ballylongford, lost 6 cows out of 12; lost 6 heifers out of 6; lost 4 calves out of 4.

Mrs. Bridget Kennelly, Moybella, Liselton, lost 4 cows out of 10; lost 12 young cattle out of 12.

Maurice Carmody, Skehenerin, Listowel, lost 7 cows out of 7.

T. O'Connor, Derry, Listowel, lost 23 cows out of 35.

P. Lynch, Bunagare, Listowel, lost 4 cows out of 4.

T. O'Connor, Kilmorna, lost 22 yearlings, 6 two-year-olds, 2 cows.

P. O'Connor, Kealid, Newtownsandes, lost 11 cows, 10 yearlings and 6 two-year-olds.

These are only a few of the many cases that I can prove.

UFO: First: The Department of Defense, in an unprecedented move, spoke publicly about UFOs. That's nice of them. But UFOs are literally unidentified flying objects, nothing more. "The Pentagon acknowledges the existence of UFOs" does not mean "The Pentagon unveils their secret info on aliens." It means "the Pentagon admits that they have not been able to identify 100% of stuff sighted in the sky. Of course they haven't been able to identify everything. The only weird part was their refusal to admit that for so long.

 

The Pentagon has now switched to a new term instead of UFO: UAP, or unidentified aerial phenomena. This term means exactly the same thing as unidentified flying object, but they had to switch because people wrongly think UFO means "stealthy extraterrestrial." Unfortunately, the switch isn't really working. Instead of a new but accurate term, people think UAP is a euphemism for UFO, think that the new term is still about aliens but seeks to downplay that fact.

CO2; Prof. Allen from the University of Oxford

A herd of 10 cows generates about 1 tonne of methane per year, which, under standard carbon-footprint calculation, suggests that this is equivalent to 28 tonnes of CO2 per year, according to Prof. Allen.

  “Whereas, if (like the Irish average) that herd was built up over the last century, it is only causing an ongoing warming equivalent to about 8 tonnes of CO2 per year, a factor of three to 4 times less than 28  ----------------------------------

History- Five Days in London- By John Lukacs

From a New York Times bestselling author: In May 1940, the British War Cabinet spent five consequential days debating whether to negotiate with Hitler — or continue to fight back. This “gripping” account (The Boston Globe) “can be compared to such classics as… Barbara Tuchman’s The Guns of August” (Harper’s Magazine).

------------------------------

Smith argues that the end to which we are oriented (and we are all oriented toward some vision of “the good life”) is not primarily something we think about, but what we desire — we are motivated by a vision of flourishing that we crave at a visceral level. This is our vision of what will deliver happiness, of what society should look like, and how the world ought to be. So Descartes was wrong in the end: We are not defined simply by what we think — in many ways, we are what we love.

 

There are competing visions of the good life. We may think that we wish to seek God and live as kind, virtuous, loving people, but we may very well be worshiping what many Christians call false idols and others call false paths to happiness. Often we follow these hollow desires unconsciously, but we can see them reflected in our daily habits and in our environment.

Saint Gregory Grassi and Companions' Story

Christian missionaries have often gotten caught in the crossfire of wars against their own countries. When the governments of Britain, Germany, Russia, and France forced substantial territorial concessions from the Chinese in 1898, anti-foreign sentiment grew very strong among many Chinese people.

Gregory Grassi was born in Italy in 1823, ordained in 1856, and sent to China five years later. Gregory was later ordained bishop of North Shanxi. With 14 other European missionaries and 14 Chinese religious, he was martyred during the short but bloody Boxer Uprising of 1900.

A generation that spent all their free time on the street with their Friends.

A generation that played hide and seek when dark.

A generation that made mud cakes.

A generation that collected sports cards.

A generation that found, collected and washed & Returned empty coke bottles to the local grocery store for 5 cents each , then bought a Mountain Dew and candy bar with the money.

A generation that made paper toys with their bare hands.

A generation who bought vinyl albums to play on record players.

A generation that collected photos and albums of clippings.

A generation that played board games and cards on rainy days.

A generation whose TV went off at midnight after playing the National Anthem.

A generation that had parents who were there.

A generation that laughed under the covers in bed so parents didn't know we were still awake.

A generation that is passing and unfortunately it will never return!!..

FEAST of Ss. Peter & Paul the Apostles is celebrated on Wed. 29th June.

 

SAINT Oliver Plunkett – Feast Day: 1st July, Saint Oliver Plunkett is believed to have been born on 1st November 1625 in Lough Crew, Co Meath. His family was from Irish nobility and supported King Charles 1 of England. He went to Rome to study for the priesthood at the Irish College and was ordained a priest there on 1st January 1654. He became a Professor of Theology in Rome from 1654 until 1669. He was appointed Archbishop of Armagh in 1669 and returned to Ireland the following year. He was forced to conduct a covert ministry during the suppression of priests at that time in the seventeenth century. He was arrested and tried at Dundalk in 1679 for conspiring against the state. It was seen that Oliver would never be convicted in Ireland so he was moved to Newgate Prison in London. Saint Oliver Plunkett was found guilty of high treason for “promoting the Catholic faith” and was condemned to a gruesome death. He was martyred on 1st July 1681 at Tyburn by hanging, disembowelling, quartering and beheading. He was the last Catholic to die for his faith at Tyburn and the first of the Irish martyrs to be beatified. His body was initially buried in two tin boxes next to five Jesuits who had died before him; his head is in St. Peter’s Church in Drogheda, Co Louth, most of his body is at Down Abbey, England and some relics are elsewhere in Ireland. His beatification took place on 23rd May 1920 and he was canonised on 12th October 1975.

St. Columba’s 1,500-year-old legacy includes this new Scottish Catholic pilgrimage

 

St. Columba, also known as St. Colmcille, was born in Ireland on Dec. 7, 521. He studied at several monasteries and became a priest. He spent 15 years in Ulster traveling, preaching and founding monasteries. He left Ireland in 563. One account of his life says he left simply in order to preach the Word of God. Another account says he had become complicit in a war between feuding tribes and then repented of his sins, taking on foreign missionary work as a penance.

 

He died June 9, 597, on what is now observed as his feast day.

REFUGEES: About 26.4 million people have fled their countries because of conflict, violence, persecution, or human rights violations.— 82.4 million — have been forcibly displaced from their homes, according to U.N. Refugee Agency (UNHCR). That number has doubled in the last decade. The previous spike in displacement occurred after World War II when 60 million people were left homeless.

 

An estimated 22.8 million Afghan people, more than half the country’s population, are facing potentially life-threatening levels of food insecurity and malnutrition this year.

GREEN; Minister Eamon Ryan says that phase two of the national offshore plan, which includes the coast of Kerry, will happen before 2027., saying it was time to move away from fossil fuels proposal at Tarbert-Ballylongford land bank.

 

The Kerry County Development Plan undermines its ability to contribute to national targets for renewable energy, according to the Office of the Planning Regulator.

 

Comment the local greenway may take another couple of years to fully open, not to mind offshore generation, which will begin with only cosmetic generation.

Hot-water bottles and sleeping bags: can I get away with barely using any energy?

 

Energy prices will more than double this year. Turning off lights not in use, and running the washing machine and dishwasher at lower temperatures and always full can help claw some of that cost back. Also, switching off devices from the plug: up to 16% of energy bills are from appliances left on standby. Whole meals can be concocted in the microwave, and it’s cheaper to cook with than the oven (frugal tip: if you are using the oven, cook as much as you can in it, and then let the heat out to warm your home). Kettles are generally more efficient than boiling by hob, especially if you don’t overfill them. Some extreme frugallers boil the kettle once a day, keeping the water hot with flasks. My goal? Soft boiling an egg in the kettle. The result? Success! Even though the price I pay is getting a mouthful of egg in my tea because an earlier attempt cracked. (It is, apparently, safe to drink your used egg water, but some frugallers suggest the best use is to water your plants instead.)

On June 19, 1865, nearly 20,000 troops led by Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas. Granger read from Order No. 3, which informed the people of Texas that the remaining 250,000 slaves were to be freed and could begin working for wages. These slaves were among the very last in the country to hear the news of their freedom, two years after President Abraham Lincoln read his Emancipation Proclamation. The news was met with celebration across the state.

 

 

 

From that day forth, the day and its yearly celebrations were remembered as Juneteenth, America's other independence day.

Juba, 22 June, 2022 / 8:50 pm (ACI Africa).

 

 

 

On the occasion of World Refugee Day marked Monday, June 20, a former refugee who fled war-torn South Sudan, has highlighted the role of the Catholic Church in general and Catholic missionaries in particular in his life journey.

 

In an interview with ACI Africa, world renowned Pulmonologist and author Dr. Emmanuel Malish Taban said, “God somehow planted all the Catholic missionaries along my way to aid my journey to where I am today.”

 

https://www.aciafrica.org/news/6123/god-planted-catholic-missionaries-to-aid-my-journey-former-south-sudanese-refugee?utm_campaign=ACI%20Africa&utm_medium=email&_hsmi=217414718&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-8FSlljJDNMhy_Y4zxLE6zqREjWMXT7mAprP1tx3Fe7tAEmfGLPGuyP6cOvswykp0NKMv59PbTRu3-LKOkT7VFnRzCmug&utm_content=217414718&utm_source=hs_email

 

 

 

============================

 

The White House announced recently that the United States will recommit to an Obama-era initiative limiting the use of anti-personnel landmines (APL), which it said have a “disproportionate impact on civilians, including children, long after fighting has stopped.” The decision does not apply to the Korean Peninsula due to “unique circumstances,” but Bureau of Political-Military Affairs official Stanley Brown told reporters APLs haven’t been used by American forces in “any significant way” since the Gulf War.

 

 

 

-------------------------------

 

TITANIC: Scholar Jess Bier examines what was done with those bodies and explains how their identification and treatment was wrapped up in their economic valuation. All the recovered dead were numbered for the records, but some counted a lot more than others. As she notes, “Decisions about which bodies to bury at sea were made largely according to the perceived economic class of the recovered victims, and those with third-class tickets were far more likely to be returned to the water.”

 

 

 

The Titanic’s microcosm of class distinctions are now infamous. “From the allegations that some steerage passengers were locked below decks, to the overwhelming better chances of survival for first-class passengers, such distinctions were assumed to be a natural part of society,” writes Bier. Class distinction also, it seems, extended beyond death. Bier contrasts the preservation and return of well-off victims with the rapid decomposition and burial at sea of the less well-off. Approximately one-third of the recovered bodies, some 114 of them, were returned to the very waters from which they’d been pulled.

-------------------------------------------

 

Reflection; You can say so much with your hands,  To the sick it says – “Hold on, I am with you”.  To a close friend your handshake says – “it’s good to see you again” while to the stranger it says “Welcome, I am pleased to meet you..”  A hand can be a greeting or a wave of goodbye.  It can say thank you, good luck and deliver a whole host of other messages.  In truth, you can often say more with your hand than with any words.

 

--------------------

 

I do my thing and you do your thing. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations and you are not in this world to live up to mine.  You are you and I am I. If by chance we find each other it will be beautiful.

 

 

 

REDUCING STRESS – Let other people do their own thing – you are not the General Manager of the Universe.

 

 

 

Patience is counting down without blast off.

 

 

 

Sympathy is never wasted except when you give too much to yourself.

 

-----------------------------------------

 

THAT'S NOT MY JOB!

 

This is a story about four people: Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.

 

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody

 

would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry

 

about that, because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do

 

it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that

 

Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done!

 

NOW IS THE HOUR...

 

Why fear tomorrow, timid heart?

 

Why tread the future's way?

 

We only need do our part,

 

Today, dear heart, today.

 

The past is written. Close the book on pages sad and grey;

 

Within the future do not look, but live today - today.

 

This one hour God has given us; Him we must now obey

 

and it will make our earth His heaven,

 

If we live and love Him today - today.

The warmth of a summer sun, The calm of a quiet sea,

 

The generous soul of nature, The comforting arm of night,

 

The wisdom of the ages, The power of eagle's flight,

 

The joy of a morning in spring, The faith of a mustard seed,

 

The patience of eternity, The depth of a family need,

 

Then God combined these qualities, when there was nothing more to add,

 

He knew His masterpiece was complete, and so, He called it.......Dad.

BALLADS: Rhyming History: The War of Independence & the ballads of atrocity in The Valley of Knockanure

 

122 views  16 May 2021  “If a man were permitted to make all the ballads, he need not care who should make the laws of a nation”: Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun (1653-1716), Scottish patriot.

 

In this lecture poet and author Gabriel Fitzmaurice will draw together the threads of traditional lore and balladry with the steel-wire of factual evidence to explain the origins of the ballad ‘The Valley of Knockanure’ by the internationally acclaimed writer, Bryan MacMahon, who had been commissioned to do so in 1946 by Pádraig Ó Ceallacháin, a noteworthy activist in the cause for Irish Independence.

 

This is the fifth in a series of lectures organised by Kerry Writers' Museum as part of it's North Kerry War of Independence Centenary Commemoration Programme.  The lecture is supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Art, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media under the Decade of Centenaries Programme.

LOSS: Global companies have lost more than $59 billion from their Russian operations since the country invaded Ukraine, the Wall Street Journal reported.

 

USA: There have been 266 mass shootings just this year, according to the gun violence archive.

NIGERIA: “Terrorists are on free loose slaughtering, massacring, injuring, and installing terror in different parts of Nigeria since over eight years not because of any reasonable thing but because they are evil — period,” he commented.

 

The bishop, who has led the Diocese of Ondo since 2010, said that there was “a profound fear in every part of the country” due to widespread kidnappings, as well as attacks on churches, markets, and public transport.

 

 

 

He underlined that his flock understood the importance of protecting the environment, as set out in Pope Francis’ 2015 encyclical Laudato si’.

 

“While we are still mourning our loved ones after the horrible attack, I wish to appeal to those who are trying to take advantage of this horrific event to project any form of ideological agenda, to desist from such opportunism,” he said.

 

“I implore everyone to pray for Nigeria and indeed for peace in the world.”

 

“The victims of terrorism and indeed all the people of Nigeria would be thankful if world leaders propose fruitful ideas to the government of Nigeria on how to protect the citizens and make Nigeria a safe place to live.”

 

“This would be a better way of honoring the victims of hate and putting an end to the incessant killings in Nigeria.”

EXHIBITION “Protest!”, presented at the Gallery of Photography Ireland, looks at the role of photography in documenting the various political and social movements that have taken place in Ireland from the late 1960s to the present day. The exhibition focuses on the many fights the photographers have immortalized, from civil rights to “The Troubles,” economic issues, women’s and LGBTQIA+ or travellers’ rights, international movements for change, including pacifist movements, Black Lives Matter or #MeToo.

Everywhere it's tried, rent control harms the people it's meant to help. Yet foolish politicians continue to implement it.

 

Rent control once destroyed much of my town, New York. Because landlords couldn’t make money, some set fire to their own buildings to collect insurance.

 

The late economist Walter Williams once told me, "Short of aerial bombardment, the best way to destroy a city is through rent controls.”

FOOD loss and waste is estimated to be roughly one third of the food intended for human consumption in the United States. When food is discarded, all inputs used in producing, processing, transporting, preparing, and storing discarded food are also wasted. Food loss and waste also exacerbates the climate change crisis with its significant greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint. Production, transportation, and handling of food generate significant Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions and when food ends up in landfills, it generates methane, an even more potent greenhouse gas.

Jackie Lambert suspects that her habit of showering only every three days is unusual. “But I’m unapologetic for it because I think it’s fine,” she laughs. After all, a daily shower is more about cultural expectations than hygiene.

 

 

 

To be fair, Lambert’s whole lifestyle is on the unusual side. After she and her husband were made redundant in their early 50s, they decided to rent out their house in the coastal town of Bournemouth, UK, and move into a caravan with their four dogs for much of the year. At the moment, they’re in a village in the Italian Alps.

Excessive Usage of Water

 

 

 

     The fashion industry consumes one tenth of all of the water used industrially to run factories and clean products. To put this into perspective, it takes 10,000 liters of water  to produce one kilogram of cotton or approximately 3,000 liters of water for one cotton shirt. Furthermore, textile dyeing requires toxic chemicals that subsequently end up in our oceans. Approximately 20% of the wastewater worldwide is attributed to this process, which accumulates over time. As many  factories moved overseas as stated previously, they may be in countries without strict environmental regulations, resulting in untreated water to enter the oceans. Regrettably, the wastewater created is extremely toxic and in many cases, cannot be treated to become safe again.

POETRY:  Delmore Schwartz- 1913 (New York) – 1966

 

Delmore Schwartz was born in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Jewish Romanian immigrants. Schwartz offered a number of explanations for what John Ashbery once characterized as his “artificially English-sounding name Delmore.” According to Schwartz’s biographer, James Atlas, “sometimes he would insist he had been named after a delicatessen across the street from the house where he was born, sometimes that his mother had been fond of an actor who was named Frank Delmore. In still other versions, the name was taken from a Tammany Hall club, a Pullman railroad car, or a Riverside Drive apartment house.

NOVENA TO THE SACRED HEART – 16TH – 24TH JUNE.  

 

O divine Jesus who said “Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened to you.  I kneel at your feet.  From whom shall I ask if not from you, whose heart is the source of all blessings. O Divine Jesus your Heart was moved by compassion for the men and women who came to you in need.  You healed the sick, you forgave sinners.  You are the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  O Divine Jesus your heart is still full of compassion for us today in our many needs.  Assured of your love we turn to you and ask …(mention your requests).  I admit I am most unworthy of your favour, Jesus, but this is not a reason for me to be discouraged.   You are the God of mercies, and you will not refuse a contrite heart.  Look with pity on me, I beg you so that your compassionate heart will find in my weakness a motive for granting my request.   May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be everywhere loved.  Our Lady of the Sacred Heart pray for us.   Amen.

Trees like poplars can be used in what Kirkwood and Kennen call a “groundwater migration tree stand,” where the trees “modify the groundwater hydrology and keep contaminants from migrating.” These stands are commonly used for contaminants like trichloroethylene (TCE) and polychloroethlyene (PCE) that accompany military and industrial sites and are common dry-cleaning contaminants; petroleum at gas stations and refineries; and an overabundance of nutrients like nitrogen. They report poplar species including eastern cottonwood (P. deltoides) and trembling aspen (P. tremuloides) as notable remediative plants for their high biomass, fast growth, and—most importantly for capturing contaminants—deep tap roots and high evapotranspiration rates. With their groundwater-seeking roots, the trees can intercept contaminated water or be planted to draw groundwater away from a contaminant plume. High rates of evapotranspiration—the process by which water departs from the plant via the foliage—means the plant will move the water quickly, and hybrid poplars (along with fellow Salicaceae family member willows) are particularly adept at this.

Mayo's D-Day heroine receives special US honour

 

(Maureen Flavin Sweeney was born at Knockanure and is now 99 years.)

 

Updated / Sunday, 20 Jun 2021

 

By Teresa Mannion- Regional Reporter

 

 

 

A 98-year-old woman living in Co Mayo, has been given a special US House of Representatives honour in Belmullet this evening, for the role she played in changing the course of world history with her weather reports.

 

 

 

Maureen Sweeney, who is originally from Co Kerry, forecast an impending storm from Blacksod station in 1944 which changed the timing of the D-Day landings and ultimately secured victory for the Allies.

 

 

 

The remote Blacksod lighthouse and coastguard station played a key role during World War II supplying Britain with weather reports.

 

 

 

Ted and Maureen Sweeney were amongst those taking readings on an hourly basis, which were being secretly phoned into London.

 

 

 

At 1pm on 3 June 1944, 21-year-old Maureen was first to forecast a severe Atlantic storm, which led to a change of plan in one of the world's biggest military operations.

 

 

 

D-Day was postponed to 6 June and the rest is history.

 

 

 

Maureen's readings unwittingly gave the Allies two day advance warning of stormy conditions in western Europe, forcing General Dwight D Eisenhower to delay his meticulously planned invasion of Normandy.

 

 

 

Maureen's son, Vincent, is the lighthouse keeper at Blacksod Point and he recalled how she used rudimentary instruments and equipment to record weather data.

 

 

 

This was one of her duties in the little post office in Blacksod, which he described as "being a world away from the bloodshed and tragedy of the war".

 

 

 

Vincent said people in the area had no idea of the significance of the weather report and rather the part it was to play in the war.

 

 

 

Maureen Sweeney was honoured at Tí Aire nursing home in Belmullet.

 

 

 

A letter was read out from the World War II museum in New Orleans, Louisiana, as well as a personal note from US Congressman and retired 3-Star Admiral Jack Bergman (Michigan First District), who is the highest ranking veteran to ever serve in Congress.

 

 

 

The special recognition, which has been awarded since 1789, entitles Maureen to receive a proclamation noting her accomplishments, and will be placed in the US Library of Congress for perpetuity.

 

 

 

A special medal in recognition of Maureen's 'Laudable Actions' was placed on her lapel and there was music and poetry performed for Mayo's D-Day heroine.

 

 

 

Speaking in a recorded interview with her grandson Fergus Sweeney in 2014, Maureen said: "Eisenhower was making up his mind about whether to enter France or not. He was very divided but when he saw the report from Blacksod Point it confirmed he made the right decision.

 

Fergus Sweeney

 

 

 

"That report was sent from here on the 3rd June and the following morning there was a query at around 11 o'clock. And then was a second query. A lady with a distinct English accent requested me to 'Please Check. Please Repeat!' We began to look at the figures again. We checked and rechecked and the figures were the same both times so we were happy enough then".

 

 

 

Maureen added with pride, "they relied on our weather forecast. It’s something you’ll remember for a lifetime."

HARVESTING is taking place at a very rapid pace at present, all want job finished while weather is suitable. Land that received reduced fertiliser, is noticeable, in crop reduction.  The government is dragging their heels and shortly half the year is gone and little meaningful actions to encourage maximum home forage production. Conference on global warming will encourage reduced crop production and leave the vulnerable to die of malnourishment or reduce population by other means.

Isolation and abandonment, is the general feeling of people who use traditional means of contact, when things are delayed or left without reply, they can always blame foreign recruits.

The Vatican announced on Monday that Catholics can obtain a plenary indulgence by visiting an elderly person on the second World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly.

 

A decree issued by the Apostolic Penitentiary on May 30 said that the indulgence is available “to the faithful who devote adequate time to visit, in presence or virtually, through the media, their elderly brothers and sisters in need or in difficulty” on July 24.

 

The indulgence can also be gained by Catholics present at a solemn commemoration of the annual event by Pope Francis that day or at celebrations around the world.

Two Day EEC Meeting End

 

PARIS-The meeting of the heads of the EEC governments ended here with the announcement of a number of major decisions, among them the fixing of a Regional Fund of £542 million, the abolition of the right of veto on the Council of Ministers and its replacement by what is called a "qualified majority," direct elections to the European Parliament by 1978—and a plan to hold another "summit" meeting before the end of March next, this time in Dublin. Although some reservations were expressed on these decisions, and although agreement on the Fund came as something of an anti-climax after all the months of discussion, the talks ended amid cautious optimism on future economic co-operation among the Nine. The summit ended shortly before 11:00 o'clock Wed. and the French President, M. Giscard D'Estaing, who presided, read out the statement from the heads of government. He said that the talks have provided for other such meetings to be held three times a year and, if necessary, more often. Foreign Ministers will also meet along with heads of State. The aim of the meetings is eventual political co-ordination. The right of veto on the Council of Ministers is to be replaced by a "qualified majority"-in other words, it is hoped gradually to move away from the need for total unanimity at Council meetings. This means, of course, that the right of veto could no longer be used as a threat by any member country which feels it has a grievance. When plans were being made for the summit that has just ended, Ireland and Italy, worried over the delay in setting up the Regional Fund, threatened to veto the talks unless a decision was reached on regional aid. Another proposal arising from the two-day meeting was to have a plan for direct elections to the European Parliament ready by 1976, and to apply the direct voting system in 1978. The British and the Danes expressed reservations about this proposal. A working group was set up to establish possible union between the Nine on passports and to have a uniform passport for EEC countries with the general intention of establishing a "European Union." The summit statement also reaffirmed the aim of economic and monetary union. It was agreed that economic policies of the Nine should converge with the aim of preventing economic recession and restoring stability. Particular emphasis was placed on the German intention to adopt in a short time the re-launching of private and public investment. CONSULTATION On employment, there is to be consultation between the member countries and the social partners such as the trade unions in the various countries. The Ministers of Labour will be meeting in the near future. In regard to energy, the statement expressed the need for greater co-operation between importing and exporting countries. The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Dr. FitzGerald, said afterwards that the' summit had been significant on four particular counts; the adoption of a regional policy; the decision of the Germans to reflate their economy; the overcoming of the first obstacle in the efforts to ensure that British re-negotiation of terms will keep her in the community, and, finally, the improvement indicated by the French Government in  American-French relations, which should provide for greater solidarity and a better chance of dealing with the Arabs on oil resources. SIGNIFICANCE The Taoiseach, Mr. Cosgrave, said that the significance of the German decision to reflate the economy could only be realised if we appreciated the fact that the German surplus of balance of payment was equivalent to the deficit of all the member countries.

By the time RTS,S was approved, vaccines for another global killer, Covid-19, had already been developed and authorized around the world—less than two years after the virus emerged.

 

 

 

The apparent disparities have frustrated some researchers in sub-Saharan Africa. “If the same energy and resources were directed towards malaria vaccine development as has been the case for Covid-19, then malaria could be eradicated,” wrote Damaris Matoke-Muhia, a scientist at the Kenya Medical Research Institute, in an essay for the global development site SciDev.Net last August. (At the time, she noted, malaria was killing more people on the continent than Covid-19.)

T S Eliot; By Angelica Frey

 

When the inaugural issue of the prestigious literary magazine Criterion hit shelves in October 1922, it included a 434-line-long poem by a little-known American author who spent his days as a banker at Lloyd's. T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land, with its cacophony and bleakness, encapsulated in verse the spirit of modernism, much like Stravinsky had in music with Rite of Spring in 1913.

COVID-19 and Physical Activity; While the pandemic created universal, widespread lockdowns, research “conducted all over the world on cohorts of patients with COVID-19 have shown that the risk of being severely affected by this potentially deadly virus varies considerably. For instance, frail elderly people initially represented a large segment of patients with COVID-19 who died. However, further analyses revealed that people with obesity and other chronic conditions, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease, were at greater risk of severe COVID-19 and death than individuals of a normal weight without comorbidities.”

 

 

 

Research has shown that not only does obesity put someone at much greater risk of severe COVID-19 outcomes, but so does a lack of physical activity. Among those who became infected, the sedentary were more than twice as likely to be hospitalized, 73% more likely to be placed in intensive care, and 2.5 times more likely to die from the disease as compared to those who got at least 150 minutes of exercise a week.

FARMER: Wendell Berry is a farmer who doesn’t own a TV or computer, and he farms with horses rather than heavy machinery. He’s also a writer who is inspiring a revolution against an economic system that is built on waste and exploitation. Here’s why one writer sees him as a model for a new way to live in harmony with the land and each other.

 

Years ago when I was deciding what to study in college, one of the dominant thoughts was this: I want to make enough money that I never have to do my own yard work. I settled on mechanical engineering. And soon, instead of making money mowing lawns and pulling weeds as I had for most of high school, I was spending my summers sitting at a computer designing things. If that younger me could see my life now — instead of life as an engineer, I’m spending my time teaching science, keeping chickens, and looking forward to getting my hands dirty in the garden — he would be horrified.

Pope Francis said on Wednesday that Catholics today are living in an “age of fake news, collective superstitions, and pseudo-scientific truths.”

 

 

 

Reflecting on the Book of Ecclesiastes at his general audience on May 25, the pope suggested that the 21st century was marked not only by scientific knowledge but also what he called a “cultured witchcraft.”

NEW HORIZONS for the Parish. In light of a need for more accountable structures indicated by the diocese, the Parish Societies need to be reviewed.  Because of this and various happenings in the Parish (Covid/change of Parish administration etc.), I invited feedback in February.

 

It does not serve much purpose to go through the different perspectives in detail but what in general emerged was a desire for a return to “normality”, concern to re-engage those who have moved away, a need to better include youth of different stands (altar servers, choirs etc.)  Other items included some need for more extended newsletters, better Mass times, Church maintenance (current and future), adult education (retreats/lectures/seminars), a retirement village.

 

Parish representation mainly through the Pastoral Council and Finance Committee is appreciated but included a strong call for renewal.  This pivoted on the need for regular replacement of members in the interest of vitality and better inclusion.  For this, various people were proposed.

 

As a follow up and initial step, the pastoral council and finance committee will soon be reframed as the Parish looks ahead.

 

CORPUS CHRISTI PROCESSION 2022: Following cancelation of our Corpus Christi Procession during the Covid period we hope to have hold our Annual Corpus Christi Procession on Saturday, 18th June immediately after the Vigil Mass of the Feast of Corpus Christi at 7.00 p.m.. (More details later).

LABOUR and Farmers 100 years ago. In  County  Kerry,  labour  organisations  turned  to  co-operative principles to secure the economic interests of their members. In November 1918, The Irish  Homestead reported  the  establishment  of  a  workers’  co-operative  store  in Tralee.  The  following  January,  the  ITGWU  established another  co-operative  store in the market town of Listowel ‘for the benefit of the workers’. Located in Kerry’s most urbanised areas, these stores reflected the ITGWU’s desire to use co-operative methods to benefit the local consumers, the same group from which the trade union’s members were drawn.  The  IAOS  exhibited  an  uneasy  relationship  with  organised  labour.  By  May 1919,  antagonisms  between  co-operators  and  the  trade  union  movement  emerged. AE  hoped  that  workers  continued  to  establish  co-operative  societies,  but  grew anxious  about  their  autonomy  from  the  IAOS’s  authority.  AE  suggested  that  trade unions might be better served through incorporation into the IAOS. He wondered if:  trade union leaders would communicate with the Irish Agricultural Organisation Society,  so  that  investigation  may  be  made,  and  it may  be  seen  whether  labour would be better advantaged by coming in with farmers in starting a single strong society catering for both.68Such collaboration never occurred, which confirmed a distance between co-operating farmers and organised labour. Rural labourers looked to the ITGWU for leadership, whilst the  IAOS  represented  landowning  farmers.  This reflected the inability of  the IAOS to make significant progress into towns. The IAOS ceded influence over urban interests to a mixture of private industry, commercial interests and trade unions. This situation confirmed the IAOS’s  reputation  as  a  rural  producers’  organisation.  The

ITALY is one of the most beautiful countries in the world and we started in the mountains of the north, traveled through the heartland, along the Adriatic Coast, and all the way to Rome. We visited Milan, Pavia, Florence, Siena, Assisi, Loreto, Manoppello, Lanciano, Padre Pio’s San Giovanni Rotondo, and ended in Rome, with wine tasting, cooking classes, special guides like art historian, Liz Lev, and visits to amazing churches and shrines along the way

May 16 to 20th marks Dementia Awareness Week; a campaign of huge importance as not enough is understood about vascular dementia, Alzheimer’s or other similar diseases of the brain.

 

 

 

Last year, the Baring Foundation commissioned a consultation with care homes entitled ‘Arts and Culture in Every Care Home?’ . This was a national call to arms, promoting the importance of a daily cultural or arts offer for elders in care homes, including people living with dementia.

================================

 

KILMORNA Forest Many bird species occur in the Kilmorna Forest but most of these are shy and secretive, and occur at low densities. Fruit and insect-eating birds often move around in mixed-species groups, particularly in the dry winter months when they are not breeding. This explains why it is possible to walk for long periods and see no birds, then suddenly be confronted with a whole mob. Birdwatching in any forest is always a challenge, however, as birds will hear you coming long before you see them, and they hide among shadows on the forest floor or move directly overhead in the leafy canopy. The garden around the manor provides the best birdwatching opportunities as forest-dwelling species come to the fringes. Ten of the ‘specials’ including Narina Trogon and Olive Woodpecker – are featured in our Star Birds chart and a full bird checklist is available. African Crowned Eagle may sometimes be seen soaring above the forest, while Knysna and Purple-crested Turacos (louries) feed on the Wild-plum and other fruits.

PRAYER TO ST. ROCH: O Blessed St. Roch, Patron of the sick, have pity on those who lie upon a bed of suffering.  Your power was so great when you were in this world, that by the sign of the Cross many were healed of their diseases.  Now you are in Heaven your power is no less.  Offer to God our sighs and tears and obtain for us the physical, mental. and spiritual health we seek.  This we ask though Christ our Lord.  Amen.    St. Roch pray for us, that we may be preserved

 

from all diseases of body and Soul.

 

 

 

WORD: Life is made up of getting and giving – forgetting and forgiving.

 

------------------------------------

 

Take Time

 

Take time to think, it is the source of all power. Take time to play, it is the

 

secret of perpetual youth. Take time to read, it is the foundation of wisdom.

 

Take time to pray, it is the greatest power on earth. Take time to love and

 

be loved, it is a God given privilege. Take time to be friendly, it is the road to

 

happiness. Take time to laugh, it is the music of the soul. Take time to give,

 

it is too short a day to be selfish. Take time to work, it is the price of success.

 

Take time to do charity, it is the key to Heaven.

POPE FRANCIS ON SUNDAY’S GOSPEL: “The Gospel reading for this Sixth Sunday of Easter presents a passage of the discourse that Jesus addressed to the Apostles at the Last Supper. Today the Lord invites us to open our heart to the gift of the Holy Spirit, so that he may guide us on the paths of history. Day by day, he teaches us the logic of the Gospel, the logic of welcoming love, by ‘teaching us all things’ and reminding us ‘of all the Lord has said to us’. May Mary, whom in this month of May we venerate as our heavenly mother, always protect us all. May she who, with humble and courageous faith, fully cooperated with the Holy Spirit, help us too to allow ourselves to be taught and guided by the Paraclete, so that we may welcome the Word of God and witness to it with our lives.

 

------------------------------------

 

Prayer

 

I put before Him the crowded day,

 

I try to hear what his voice will say.

 

If others are right and I am wrong,

 

am I the weak or are they the strong ?

 

I place my thoughts and feelings o’re,

 

as I gaze upon the little Golden Door.

 

 

 

Today dear Lord I may forget you.

 

Please do not forget me.

 

Jesus and Mary I always pray,

 

ever be with me on my way.

 

 

 

Lord, help me to remember that nothing

 

is going to happen in my life today,

 

that you and I won’t handle together.

Fr Ned McElligott- 1914–1982- Ned was born in Moyvane, Co. Kerry on the 28th of May 1914. He received his primary education at the local National School, after which he proceeded to secondary level, first at St. Michael’s, Listowel from 1927 to 1930 and then at St. Brendan’s Seminary, Killarney from 1930 to 1932. In that year, he entered St. Patrick’s College, Carlow, where he studied philosophy from 1932 to 1934. In the latter year, he entered Kiltegan and was ordained in June 1939.

 

From 1939 to early 1945, he worked in the then Prefecture of Calabar. He taught in Holy Family College, Abak, and later ministered in the missions of Anua, Ifuho and Edem Ekpat.

 

After the usual home leave, he returned to Calabar in 1946. However, an operation for an ulcer cut short his tour, and returning to Kiltegan he was Mission Representative during the years 1949 and 1950. This was followed by a stint on the college staff during the academic year of 1950-1951. In 1951 he went on parish work to the Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin, where he ministered in the parish of Ballon.

 

In October, 1954 Ned began a new phase in his life, this time in Kenya, in the Diocese of Eldoret. Here, he worked in Eldoret town, the seminary in Moi’s Bridge and finally in St. Joseph’s Teacher’s Training College, Kitale. He left Kenya in October, 1963. After his return to Ireland, he spent some time in the parish of Ballon, and was Chaplain to the Patrician Brothers.

FERTILIZER: The biggest buyer of Russian fertilizer is Brazil, which imports about a quarter of all its fertilizer from Russia. Earlier this year, with Russian troops gathering at the Ukrainian border, President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil posed for photos with Mr. Putin in the Kremlin. At the meeting, a week before the invasion, Mr. Bolsonaro said Brazil stood “in solidarity with Russia.” On the same trip, he said Brazil would double its purchases of Russian fertilizers.

 

After the invasion began, Mr. Bolsonaro said Brazil would remain neutral, and made clear why. “What happens 10,000 kilometers away in Ukraine has reverberations in Brazil,” he said. “We have special business with Russia.”

 

 

 

“For us,” he added, “the question of fertilizers is sacred.”

AMAZING Life of Pauline Jaricot

 

Pauline Jaricot, who was declared venerable in 1963, was born in Lyon a decade after the French Revolution, on July 22, 1799. She was the youngest of seven children of Antoine and Jeanne Jaricot.

 

Antoine was the owner of a silk factory, so Pauline was expected to live her life in the bourgeoisie. So at 15 she was made her debut in Lyon’s social life of the city. A sermon on vanity made her question that scene.

HIDDEN long-term risks of surgery: ‘It gives people’s brains a hard time’------------------

 

Cibelli listened as the woman described how her father, a former physics professor, had shown signs of significant cognitive decline after the initial operation. Once a keen chess player, he was now unable to play the game and struggled to even do basic crosswords.

 

For Cibelli, it was the first time he had encountered what is now termed postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) – cognitive problems associated with surgery that persist well after the effects of anaesthetics have worn off. “I published some articles on the subject,” he says. “And people began finding my email address, saying their father or mother had changed a lot after a surgery in the past. So I began to realise that this wasn’t such an isolated case.”
