Voice of Ireland judge and former ‘Blizzards’ frontman Niall Breslin has been slammed for his recent comments calling for the legalisation of cannabis.
Mid-way through March and it’s the countdown to summer (even though it may not feel like it) and time to get fit! Only a few more weeks and it will be time to get out the tanning mitts and throw on the denim shorts. It also happens to be time to try out every diet fad known to man in order to get the perfect bikini body, from Special K to Atkins to diets that consist of very little more than a vomit-inducing milk shake.
Arranging my Cheerios in the style of the Olympic logo, I pored over the free Olympic pull-out that the Star had bestowed upon me. THIS WAS IT. This was the year. I could feel it in my fingers and toes. This was finally the year where I would become obsessed with the Olympics. I would watch at least five sports a day. I would deck the halls with Ireland flags purchased on a purposed trip to Pound City. I would engage in conversations about the Olympics without wanting the other [...]
In times of great worry or despair, many turn to food and alcohol for comfort. Others, mainly female, but a good few males too, turn to their credit cards to cheer them up. Cosmetics, clothes, gadgets; the list of items purchased on shopping sprees is endless. If a person really wanted to go crazy, they could spend well up to and above €200 in just one shop. Good for the economy. Bad for your finances.
By Emma Kelly When I first read about bubble tea- an insanely popular drink that originated in Taiwan in the 80s- I was very sceptical. Fruity tea with tapioca pearls floating around in it? Hardly sounded appetising to me. But, readers and refreshment lovers, I’m glad to say my scepticism was completely unfounded after visiting Bubblicity in George’s Street Arcade. Ireland’s first shop dedicated to bubble tea opened in the arcade two months ago, and is already a big hit. Ronan Murphy, one of Bubblicity’s owners, said, “We get a lot [...]
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. After hearing my sister squeaking indignantly at the computer screen, and my mother ranting about how such a book got published, I had a look online myself. Many sites have picked it up, inviting nutritionists in to look at what the book says you should do in order to lose weight. Lose [...]
While Health Minister James Reilly may have other things on his plate this week, his announcement of the introduction of compulsory calorie counts on restaurant menus within six months has restauranteurs in a lather. The ultimatum gives restaurant owners six months to get onboard voluntarily, but if not, the government will legislate and enforce compliance.
Dustin Hoffman, star of Rain Man, The Runaway Jury and The Graduate, played the part of a real life hero it emerges today, after he saved the life of a London jogger.
New findings from Trinity College Dublin (TCD) researchers studying the neuropsychiatric syndrome of delirium have been published in the Journal of Neuroscience this week, uncovering important interactions between inflammation and brain chemistry that may contribute to its onset. The research relates to the two competing theories of delirium, and may reconcile the two approaches. Delirium is a common psychiatric disorder that manifests as sudden and profound disturbance of attention, memory, and behaviour. Delirium can be caused by many different events, such as an infection, surgery or a change in medication. [...]
Obesity Overload. Operation Transformation; I used to be Fat; The Biggest Loser. These are just a few of many weight loss programmes currently bombarding Irish TV screens. We are now considered just as fat as our trans-Atlantic cousins. Yes, it seems that these days, the majority of Irish people are trying hard to fight the bulge. Recent figures released show that one in four Irish adults are now obese i.e. at least 30 lbs over weight (that’s 2 ½ – 3 stone). This recent figures are shocking when compared to [...]
