A Cleveland bus driver has been suspended after being caught on video hitting a passenger in the face after the passenger abused him and shoved him while he was driving.
About paulodonoghueHey I'm a first year journalism student in DCU. Sadly, my picture really is me, I was born with no face. To compensate, I have nurtured my powerful intellect, to the point where I can now count into double figures and spell most of my name. With a bit of luck, one day I hope to fulfill my dream of dividing 0 by 0 and exploding the universe. Give me a look on twitter, @paulodonoghue93, where I'll be discussing everything from aardvarks to zyzzogetons (a quick Google search will confirm that zyzzogeton is actually a real word.)
The Dark Knight Rises took in a record-breaking $160.8 million in the United States and Canada, the highest amount ever achieved by a 2D film, breaking the record previously set by its predecessor, The Dark Knight ($158 million).
As Alessandro Diamanti stepped up to the penalty spot, you just had a feeling that it wasn’t to be England’s night. Having failed to convert their last two penalties, England needed Diamanti to miss to keep any hopes alive. However, it wasn’t to be as the Italian coolly stroked the ball past Joe Hart to book Italy a semi-final place in Warsaw. Although Italy dominated the match for over 90 minutes, including the stretches of extra time, Roy Hodgson’s battling English side managed to hang in just long enough to [...]
People have been going on about how bad new music is for years. “X-Factor has topped the Christmas charts for half a decade.” They wail, beating their heads against the nearest old fashioned record player they can find. “Pitbull rhymed Kodak with Kodak. Crazy Frog exists. I don’t want to live on this planet anymore!” Looking at mainstream music today, upon first glance it seems hard to disagree, with plenty of manufactured X-Factor style acts such as One Direction and Cheryl Cole dominating the charts. Also, if you look at [...]
Irish fans were still singing loud and proud last night as Ireland crashed out of Euro 2012 following a master class performance by Spain, putting Ireland to the sword to win 4-0. The usually organised Irish defence, which had been instrumental in the team qualifying for the Euros in the first place, was simply swept aside by a Spanish team at the top of its game. Before the match, an RTÉ poll revealed that over 75% of Irish fans believed that the team could get a result from the game. [...]
Multi-million selling author Christopher Paolini charmed an audience of fans at Liberty Hall yesterday in a talk on his latest book as part of the Dublin Writers festival. The book, Inheritance, is part of the Inheritance cycle, which has now spawned four books selling over 25 million copies worldwide, and a Hollywood blockbuster film. Speaking to an audience of about 100 enthusiastic fans, Paolini described the writing for his last book, Inheritance, as the hardest of his career. “Definitely the hardest writing I did was in the last book. It [...]
Think back to one of the more awkward experiences of your life. It may have been that time you were jocked in front of your crush, and rather than laugh, she just shook her head in pity. It may have been that time you were caught by your mam during your special alone time with one arm, quite literally, longer than the other. Or it may have been the time you walked in on your dad wearing high heels and full makeup while singing ‘Bad Romance’ into a hairbrush. Whatever [...]
At a recent Comic-Con convention, an official approached me with an original Star Wars episode one double lightsaber. “Courtesy of that Trekkie over there,” he said, pointing behind me. Whirling around, I saw a middle-aged woman dressed in a Starship Enterprise uniform with Spock ears giving me the Vulcan salute. You may well be thinking that I would be both flattered and surprised, however I was neither. I wasn’t flattered as the packaging for the lightsaber had moderate scuff marks and water damage, rendering it virtually worthless. And I wasn’t surprised. [...]
“GODDAM YOU FACEBOOK!” It’s 5 o’ clock in the morning. I’ve just stumbled into my house, staggered upstairs, cold, half-empty curry chips in hand, only to log onto Facebook and discover that I’ve been tagged in yet another photo where my eyes are closed and I look like I’m about to knock one out. “That’s it Facebook, I’ve had enough of your crap, I’m leaving!” I roar, my booming voice echoing across the night sky, sending a shiver down the spine of all who hear it. “Paul, wait,” Facebook pleads. [...]
After a long Paddy’s weekend, we both know you’re putting off that small mountain of work that has built up just so you can polish off those left over naggins. I know what you really want. It is an article telling you how to stop procrastinating. However, I’m not going to write about that because there’s a very simple solution to stopping procrastination. DO YOUR DAMN WORK! Having said that, sometimes you don’t even realise you’re doing it. This list is to help you identify when you are and will, hopefully, stop [...]
