Pic of the Day – Don’t they look apey!

Pictured in today’s Irish Daily Mail is two little monkeys that everyone’s going ape about! They may look like any other baby monkeys but these two are scientific breakthroughs.    Roku and Hex are the world’s first chimperic monkeys- created with genetic material from six ‘parents’.  Twins Roku and Hex, whose names come from the Japenese and Greek fro ‘six’, have been created with genetic material from six monkeys.  These pair appear to be taking everything in their stride and I have to say sure are a cute pair!

Tee Jee Four!

It never surprises me when people get their goat up about the Irish language. Let’s remember that most people of an older generation resent it for the hours of Peig torture, while getting caned across the hand for not getting their séimhiú and their gutaí right. For a younger generation it is all about the points and the CAO and the college and what relevance does a mandatory subject have when they will get no benefit whatsoever from it in the long run. Why they say? Why the hours? Why the effort? Why the gaeilge? And why the TG4? This

From the Land Down Under? Blog post 1

As my Pembroke friends are out celebrating year two of the P’OSCARS aka Pembroke Oscars, I’ve decided to venture back into one of my favourite places- Irish Media Watch. I received a frantic text from Ciara last night to tell me the blog had gone “down under” (lol sorry I couldn’t resist that one) or at least she couldn’t figure out what was wrong. “It seems to be reverting back to the old blog for some reason” and so I thought the only way to find out what’s wrong is to test it out – hence my first blog post

A New Low in the Leveson Inquiry

Alastair Campbell gave evidence in the Leveson Inquiry yesterday; just one of many public figures and celebrities to have been involved in the proceedings since it began.   Having had an interest in the scandal and inquiry from the beginning, I have been feeling like somewhat of a hypocrite. Why? Because, while I do think the tabloid culture in the UK is seedy, offensive, reckless, unethical… I am probably more drawn to the inquiry because of the fact that celebrities have been involved throughout – which in itself explains the tabloids’ desperate need to generate gossip about these people to

Video of the week – Supermarket frustration

This week’s video of the week is what I would call a short and sweet one!  You all know the experience of doing the dreaded weekly shop or with me I bulk buy at every opportunity in a large supermarket. Don’t judge me – I have a problem with the ‘Buy One Get One Free’ offer and then realise that I have enough toilet roll and general cosmetics to do me for the next year and I too could sell the products in question.  Veering off the point slightly there – anyway you all know the experience of walking around

Video of the week – Nostalgic backward trip for McDonalds

Our Video of the week is dedicated to good old McDonalds and their backwards video to celebrate their birthday. To celebrate 30 years of serving customers in Spain, McDonald’s have placed up a special promotional video on their Youtube page. The hook is that the video plays backwards so starting at 2011, it goes back through the years, and looks at the trends and events that occurred each year until it reaches 1981. As it cycles back through the years, the page begins to devolve to more basic technology, the Youtube video reverts to its old format while the video

Tabloid Tales

Last Sunday marked the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 atrocity and as a result there was widespread coverage in all the tabloids depicting the emotional scenes from a grieving New York City. Tens years on and the pain and loss suffered is still as strong as ever as this picture of a mother grieving at Ground Zero memorial from Monday’s ‘Irish Sun’ depicts. ‘The Star’ on Thursday explains how the recession is making Irish people world record crazy with the latest release of the Guinness World Records including 135 new records set by Irish record breakers. Other weird and wacky

Socially Acceptable

Social media has been around for a number of years now and is not going anywhere any time soon.  For most people it has transformed from the scary unknown entity into an everyday outlet.  People are becoming more and more comfortable with tweeting and blogging and it is forming part of their daily routine; wake up, brush teeth, check Facebook, have breakfast, tweet about what I had for breakfast etc., etc., etc.  As a result, the availability and variety of information is endless. While easy access to information is a welcome development, it presents us with a whole other set

Tabloid Tales

This week’s ‘Tabloid Tales’ features three stories from around the globe that hit the red tops headlines over the past few days, including the heroics of a gardai and local neighbours in Mullingar, the balancing act of a daredevil, and David Beckham’s brush with the law. The story of a heroic rescue was detailed in Tuesday’s Daily Mirror. A two year old girl and her mother were left fighting for their lives after a fire swept through their home in Mullingar. However, thanks to the heroic efforts of brave gardai and local neighbours who risked their own lives, the girl
