Dublin City University earlier this week sealed a deal with Bank of Ireland for “heavily discounted” student loans for attendees of the college. The loans, aimed for covering the registration fees charged for the college year – currently €2,250 (€9,000 over a 4 year course), will be offered to incoming students and their parents for the next four years of their course. They will be offered at a variable rate of 5.1% – however this will raise to a higher variable rate upon graduation, currently 9.7%. The current rate for [...]
With the rise of the internet age, a lot of people are getting all technological. The way forward is in computing, gadgetry and technology – pixels are in. As a computing student, of course I love computers. I love getting my hands on new laptops, phones, trying out the newest things, learning new languages for web development and scripting. But, nearly contrasting this, is a love for books. I think I have around 200 books of my own at this point, excluding the books I have grown out of. As [...]
One of the new shock books on the market, “Six Weeks to OMG” has captured the imaginations of women across the UK, and is spreading across the world. “Get skinnier than all your friends,” the front cover declares.

Here’s some tips to help you make the right choices.
Recently, a video has leapt to fame by appearing on Reddit’s video section, attracting viewers from around the world. Uploaded last week, it has over 2,000 views, and shows a cow in an Ennis hardware shop. Not that this is the first – or will it be the last – time that farm animals come onto commercial properties. A video from 2009 has gained 55,000+ views, showing RTÉ news coverage of a bull in SuperValu in Ballinrobe. This is by no means only an Irish trend. Another clip from YouTube [...]
Think about it. That top shelf is easy to reach, right? You can do that without the aid of stools and chairs and all that. But how tall are you? Probably taller than I am. Standing at a measly five foot four, I’ve come to accept that my genes have commanded that I am staying there. Most of my family are around the same stature, and some of my friends are too.
