Photo: Cian ReinhardtA LIMERICK politician has said a “cultural change” is needed in Irish politics and society to stamp out “misogyny”.Independent Councillor, Elisa O’Donovan, who was elected to Limerick City and County Council in 2019, said she has experienced misogyny from other politicians as well as members of the public.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Yes, it’s endemic in most political parties, it’s why I left party politics, it’s toxic towards women,” Cllr O’Donovan said.“It’s a culture change we need really,” she added.Cllr O’Donovan was speaking after she she said she “blocked” a man from contacting her on social media and text messages, after she had appeared on a RTE news report, last Sunday.“Yesterday I appeared on the news for less than 15 seconds. This “irritated” a man so much that he contacted me on Facebook, I blocked. Then on WhatsApp, I blocked and then by text message, I blocked.”“When @HalloranCathy (RTE Mid Western Correspondent) contacted me last week I didn’t respond to her. I knew this is the response I would get.”“For the last year I’ve done everything I can to shrink myself as a politician. I am no longer a party leader in Limerick. I don’t put in any press releases to media. I go to Council and do my work for constituents.”Cllr O’Donovan, a former member of the Social Democrats, complained that “the misogyny towards me is so pervasive and consistent”.“This low value speech on me personally is suppressing my political speech. I am calling it out this year and highlighting it. Ignoring it is not working for me anymore.”Speaking after posting her comments online, Cllr O’Donovan said she had previously “reported” to gardai previous incidents of receiving online messages,  “but I won’t this time”.“Honestly I’d be at Henry Street (Garda Station) everyday if I had to report all the harassment I get online,” she added.Cllr O’Donovan has received support from colleagues across political parties, including from former Mayor of Limerick, Fianna Fáil Cllr James Collins, who said, he too had “reduced my social media interaction for the same reasons”.“No wonder it is so difficult to encourage people to enter and remain involved in politics,” Cllr Collins added.Social Democrat TD, Holly Cairns, told Cllr O’Donovan in a tweet: “Your political speech is so important to so many people, Elisa, we’re all behind you.”Sinn Fein TD for Galway West/South Mayor, Mairead Farrell, also offered her support, and tweeted: “Really sorry to hear that, solidarity.”Limerick Labour councillor Elena Secas described it as “totally unacceptable” and told Cllr O’Donovan to “stay strong, you are a great, very hard working councillor”[email protected] tweeted: “Every politician needs to call this out for what it is, only through continually highlighting can we keep this up for discussion and challenge it. Otherwise we can’t hope for higher female representation.”Responding to Cllr Collins, @davydublin47 tweeted: “James, it’s not that difficult at all to get people involved in politics so stop with the pity party, there was always odd balls around long before the internet, Use the block button.”Edward Donovan @CadoudalChouan told Cllr Collins: “Many of the women blame negative comments on misogyny. Yet you too receive negative comments. So it is not only misogyny.”Cllr O’Donovan posted a series of screenshots of a text conversation between her and a male in which she told him “don’t ever contact me again”.Earlier a message sent to Cllr O’Donovan, read: “U couldn’t have come across any more irritating on rte news if u tried. Well done.”, to which Cllr O’Donovan replied, “Thanks. Being irritating to anonymous men on the internet is my favourite hobby.”Another message read: “I’m not the one putting myself in the public eye. Maybe u need to have a good long look at urself.”Cllr O’Donovan replied: “You are incredibly rude and I am blocking you. Take a good long hard look at yourself. I’m a political representative not a celebrity.”last_img read more

Lincoln Tortoise Tactics

first_imgFeeling left out of the Oxford tradition of racing hard-shelled creatures, Lincoln have established an official committee to investigate the acquisition of a tortoise. The pet will be trained as a super-athlete but will still not be able to run away as quickly as the college cat which scampered last term. JCR President, Philip Bownes, said the project would be long-term as it is important to “evaluate the whole thing properly” before taking on a new and reliable pet. It is hoped that the purchase will be ready for action in next year’s races.ARCHIVE: 2nd Week TT 2003last_img read more

Golf beginner Rosemary is just Ace

first_img Golf beginner Rosemary Todhunter has made an ace start to the game – achieving a hole in one just two months after taking up the sport. She achieved the feat on the 126-yard third hole at Stowmarket Golf Centre in Suffolk, where she hit a seven-iron and as, as part of the fun tradition at the centre, will be known as ACE until a hole-in-one happens again! Rosemary took up golf in July as part of an initiative funded by Sport England  to get more adults playing the game.   Stowmarket Golf Centre secured a grant from Sport England that has provided subsidised coaching and access to the golf course for 92 people over a series of six-week beginner courses.  Remarkably, 83 of the beginners completed the course and signed up for the next intermediate level.  Twenty have also become members of the centre, which has grown from zero to over 300 members in five years.   The centre’s keys to success are a warm welcome from head coach Duncan Burl and his willing team of volunteers, an informal and relaxed attitude to playing golf, a variety of events on offer on the short nine-hole golf course and the constant consumption of cake as a key focus for the social side in the club house! 3 Oct 2014 Golf beginner Rosemary is just Ace last_img read more

Ardi Party Is Over

first_imgThe hubbub over Ardipithecus (10/02/2009) may have been premature.  Despite 600 pages of material submitted to Science in October, many doubts and questions remain about the status of this hominin, or hominid, or whatever it was (the nomenclature is confusing and inconsistent even among paleoanthropologists).  In an article by Katherine Harmon in the pro-evolutionary magazine Scientific American, so many doubts are evident that laymen should seriously question whether this fossil suggests anything about human origins.   In brief, here are some key issues:Debate:  Ardi has “sharpened more differences than it has smoothed over.”Manipulation:  William Jungers (Stony Brook U) criticized Tim White’s team for overstating interpretations.  “I think some of the things they said might have been for effect,” he claimed.Negative evidence:  Even White himself does not claim that Ardi demonstrates linkage to humans.  Harmon wrote, “White and his fellow authors do not propose to have a definitive answer, but through painstaking analysis of the fossil data and surroundings, they conclude in the overview paper that, ‘There are no apparent features sufficiently unique to warrant the exclusion of Ar. ramidus as being ancestral to Australopithecus,’ thus proposing she might indeed be an early hominin (the ever-changing nomenclatural group that usually includes living humans and our close extinct relatives, also referred to by White et al. as hominids—although the latter title now often includes the great apes, as well).”Rotation:  Key to the claim that Ardi walked upright is the position of the ilium.  Rotating the ilium can lead to mistaken interpretations.  Jungers said, “It’s very difficult not to make them look like something you have in your mind if there’s any chance of play.” Harmon mentioned that “Despite the numerous images and descriptions put forth by the researchers, others are reluctant to take the reconstructions without a grain of salt.”Faculty:  Humans are obligate bipeds, but facultative tree climbers.  If Ardi was a facultative biped and obligate tree climber, as her divergent big toe indicates, she may have been no different in her transport habits than chimpanzees.  No knee joint was found in the Ardipithecus specimens.  This also confuses the interpretation.Social studies:  White and the supporters of Ardi argue that the teeth show little sexual dimorphism.  What does this mean?  They take it to mean that males were not larger and more aggressive, which means that they might have helped care for the young, which seems kind of human-like.  This reasoning is very subjective.Face book:  So what if Ardi’s face was not as protruding as that of apes?  Harmon explained, “outside researchers focus on the similarity in size to other nonhuman primates, such as extinct Miocene epoch apes.”Combination plate:  Tim White prefers to look at the combination of features that make Ardi unique, instead of focusing on piecemeal analysis of each part.  This raises questions, however, about the value of his own painstaking descriptions of those parts.  David Begun (U of Toronto) also opined that it could mean Ar. ramidus had nothing to do with human evolutionary history.  In Ardi he finds “very little in the anatomy of this specimen that leads directly to Australopithecus, then to Homo sapiens.  This could very easily be a side branch.”About the only thing they agree on is the amount of detail White’s team put into the description of the fossil is commendable.  Jungers considers the work a “new standard” that is “truly extraordinary.”  That aspect, however, affirms nothing about the interpretation of its place in human evolution.  It might only serve to elucidate the sophistication of their subjectivity.*Sigh.*  The Darwin Party song and dance is getting so tiring.  Lots of old apes and monkeys went extinct.  Who cares about another?  Considering the rivalries and ambitions among the paleoanthropologists, and the ever-changing stories, and the leeway for fudging that exists, why do we even pay these guys any attention?  Here at CEH we have to, in order to forestall the misguidance of the public that results from one-party rule in Science.    In support of that criticism, let us remind you of Tim White’s own cautions about how distorted bones can mislead even the experts (see 03/28/2003).  Let us remind you that Nature accused Tim White’s storytelling proclivities as “more philosophy than fossils” (04/27/2006).  Let us remind you that variability within humans can swamp interpretations of putative ancestral traits (07/22/2007).  And to reinforce the subjectivity of their art, let us remind you of Leslie Hlusko’s debunking of three common presumptions anthropologists use when interpreting alleged hominid bones (02/19/2004).  If you follow this stuff, consider it sport or entertainment – not science.(Visited 24 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

‘Social profit’ projects draw R2.4m

first_img14 March 2007The South African Social Investment Exchange has raised some R2.4-million for selected projects since its launch in June 2006.An initiative of the Greater Good South Africa Trust, the SA Social Investment Exchange (Sasix) says it has since expanded its investment offering with new projects and an additional investment sectors.“Of our 31 listed social investment projects, 20 are already fully funded, which has facilitated the inclusion of additional investment offerings,” Greater Good SA chief executive Tamzin Ractliffe told Business Day last month.Sasix was launched with an initial offering of 16 social projects over four targeted sectors: enterprise development, early childhood development, food security, and orphans and vulnerable children.Ten new projects in the fields of basic healthcare, environment and conservation and animal protection were later introduced.At the time of its launch, Sasix was only the second “stock exchange” of its kind in the world – the first being the Social Stock Exchange launched by Brazil’s Bovespa stock exchange in 2003.Sasix is unique in that all its investors are able to choose discrete, time-bound and performance-based investments in projects that are meaningful and tangible to them.According to Ractliffe, the Sasix portfolio represents an excellent opportunity for companies or individuals to take advantage of their tax-deductible donations, especially with the financial year-end coming up.Individuals or companies can buy shares in social investment projects of their choice, as a cost of R50 per share, from the Sasix website.At the end of the “social investment cycle”, GreaterGood provides a project performance report that includes an analysis of the achieved outcomes versus the forecast, as well as an assessment of the lessons learned.“I believe the excellent response is indicative of the need for social investment brokering support services and a greater focus on performance-based social investment opportunities,” Ractliffe said.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

South African study ‘opens new possibilities for curing HIV’

first_img3 March 2014A group of South African scientists, working with scientists from the US, has discovered how a KwaZulu-Natal woman’s body responded to her HIV infection by making potent antibodies – called broadly neutralising antibodies – that could open up new ways of treating and preventing HIV.Details of the discovery of the antibodies – called broadly neutralising antibodies because they are able to kill multiple strains of HIV from across the world – was published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature on Sunday.The study describes how the research team found and identified these antibodies in a KwaZulu-Natal woman’s blood and then duplicated them by cloning the antibodies in the laboratory. The cloned antibodies were then used in a series of experiments to elucidate the pathway followed by the woman’s immune system to make these potent antibodies.The study was conducted by South African researchers in the Caprisa (Centre for the Aids Programme of Research in South Africa) consortium, working jointly with US partners based at the Vaccine Research Center of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health, and Columbia University in New York.Caprisa includes scientists from the National Institute for Communicable Diseases in Johannesburg, the University of KwaZulu-Natal and the University of Cape Town.‘Hope for future prevention, treatment strategies’Professor Salim Abdool Karim, leader of the Caprisa consortium, said in a statement on Sunday that the new insights gained from the study into immune responses against HIV “bring hope for future HIV prevention and treatment strategies”, adding that the woman whose antibodies were studied “is doing well on antiretroviral therapy and continues to attend the Caprisa clinic regularly”.Just over a year ago, the same team of South African researchers reported in Nature Medicine (also part of the Nature group of journals) on their discovery relating to two other KwaZulu-Natal women, that a shift in the position of one sugar molecule on the surface of the HIV virus led to the development of broadly neutralising antibodies against HIV.Professor Lynn Morris, who leads the research team at South Africa’s National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD), commented: “In this new publication we have been able to isolate a broadly neutralising antibody from this Caprisa volunteer and trace its origins to understand exactly how it arose.“This could lead to new HIV vaccine strategies that are able to stimulate the rare precursors of these protective antibodies,” Morris said.Antibodies ‘with long arms’According to Caprisa, all HIV-infected people respond to HIV by making antibodies. While most people’s antibodies are not able to kill (neutralise) a wide range of HIV, a few infected people naturally make antibodies that kill many different kinds of HIV, in other words, broadly neutralising antibodies.“Broadly neutralising antibodies have some unusual features,” said Dr Penny Moore, one of the lead South African scientists on the study based at the NICD. “The outer covering (envelope) of HIV has a coating of sugars that prevents antibodies from reaching the surface to neutralise the virus. In this patient, we found that her antibodies had ‘long arms’, which enabled them to reach through the sugar coat that protects HIV.”In their study, the researchers found that these antibodies had “long arms” right at the outset. “We discovered that some HIV antibodies are born with ‘long arms’, requiring less time and fewer changes to become effective in killing HIV,” Moore said.The identification and successful cloning of these special antibodies has enabled the researchers to make sufficiently large quantities for further testing, similar to the way a medicine used to prevent or treat HIV would be tested.“Our goal is to test these antibodies, preferably in combination with other broadly neutralising antibodies, directly in patients with HIV infection or in patients at risk of getting infected,” said Karim. “But this will take some time, as the team is currently planning animal studies as a first step. Broadly neutralising antibodies have previously been shown to be effective in preventing and treating HIV infection in animals, but this has never before been shown in humans.”The future studies on animals and humans are being supported by the Strategic Health Innovation Partnerships, a unit of the South African Medical Research Council, with funding from the Department of Science and Technology.‘Importance of international scientific partnerships’Science and Technology Minister Derek Hanekom said in the Caprisa statement that the study “highlights the importance of international scientific partnerships and the contributions of South African researchers to world-class medical science. We are proud of the South African research team who conducted this ground-breaking study, and thank the US partners for their collaboration and support.”Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi, announcing the new findings at a press conference in Johannesburg on Monday, said: “We are a step closer to the day where we eventually have a viable vaccine because of what has been announced today.“This announcement tells us a little more about the HI virus,” Motsoaledi said, adding: “These studies illustrate the importance of research and the need for patience and dedication.“In 2009, when we unveiled our 10-point programme, number 10 was research and development, and we were worried that research and development in South Africa was taking long in the past decades. But we are very proud that almost every year something is being announced by our scientists in that direction.”Motsoaledi said his department had more interest in this development than anyone else in the world, as South Africa has the largest burden of HIV infections globally.He thanked those people living with HIV who had willingly participated in the study. “Your selflessness has been helping the world to better understand the HIV virus so that we can prevent transmission and find the cure.”The research was primarily funded by the US National Institutes of Health’s Vaccine Research Center and the South African Department of Science and Technology. The South African researchers also have fellowships from the Wellcome Trust, the Fogarty International Center, the National Research Foundation and the Poliomyelitis Research Foundation.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Bringing African children’s stories to a new generation

Sadly, this is often the case in Africa, a continent that is home to more than 2 000 languages.On a continent with over 2000 languages, finding mother tongue children’s books is a challenge. (Image: African Storybook)Brand South Africa reporterHolidays are a great occasion for reading, whether children are reading quietly to themselves or are sitting with their families with a book. But what do you do if the bookstore doesn’t have books in your language, or they’re just too expensive?

They are all free for download or printing, with some highlighted stories available in video format on the project’s YouTube channel. All the tales offer fascinating insights into how people on the continent tell stories that explore sometimes tough themes and ideas.Read more on “Adun, the beautiful” https://t.co/EXhqTopVL6 Story also available in #Yoruba https://t.co/Im8Was823R pic.twitter.com/g5kFjOGivk— AfricanStorybook.org (@africastorybook) November 2, 2015“Children’s books can tackle big themes in the simplest ways,” says African Storybook artist Catherine Groenewald. The stories deal with real issues faced by children in Africa today in a compassionate, realistic yet humorous manner. Death, urbanisation, respect for elders, and many more moral lessons are taught using the story format, accompanied by vibrant art.Here are some stories from the project’s website that children of all ages can enjoy during the long school holiday and once they’re back in class:Tselane and the giantAfter Tselane’s father dies her mother wants them to move to another village to start a new life. But Tselane does not want to go; her mother agrees to let her stay on her own. They make a pact that Tselane must only open the door when she hears her mother sing. But a giant is listening to their conversation and plans to catch Tselane.Nozibele, Meriri and MeraroThree young girls go to the forest to gather some wood on a hot day. There is enough, they think, and they can swim until it gets cooler. But by the time they finish swimming, it is already late and they have to rush back home.KhayangaKhayanga, a 10-year-old-girl, is taken in by a distant, poor and frail relative after the death of her parents. Her loss and pain lead her to seek guidance and comfort from her parents’ graves.Other stories include Leaving One Home for Another, about spending the holidays with grandmother in the countryside. Exploring the effects of a rapidly urbanised Africa, this is a familiar theme for many. And the story’s moral of strong family ties and teaching respect for elders is a universal one, ringing true in any culture and language.The African Storybook series also features more traditional African stories that often convey a moral lesson or caution against greed and other vices, such as the Ghanaian story Anansi and Turtle. In this story, Anansi the spider greedily eats all the food before his dinner guest Turtle gets a chance. But what can Anansi do when Turtle invites him over to her place for dinner – under water?Other stories are far more serious, such as Tingi and the Cows. Based on real events, the story is about soldiers entering a village as seen from the perspective of a young herd boy. It is an excellent starting point for a conversation about fear and brutality that has affected people across the continent, including many children. It’s a reminder that not all children are lucky enough to fully enjoy the holidays.This week’s #StorybookFriday is of Lekishon and his cows, an #earlyreading story about a Maasai boy. #Literature pic.twitter.com/5WDoJygAxH— AfricanStorybook.org (@africastorybook) August 14, 2015While teaching important life lessons, children also get a chance to develop their love of reading and language.

But Mr Bighead’s head is so big that he sinks. Mr Fly, on the other hand, “laughed so much that his mouth tore in two from one side to the other”.Naughty Hare is up to his tricks again.

But sharing traditional and contemporary African stories is also important, not least for children from elsewhere to partake in the rich oral tradition and experience a positive picture of the continent.The creation of the Global African Storybook Project has made this possible. Stories have been translated into Cantonese, German, Hindi, Jamaican Creole, Norwegian and many more – 16 languages in total, and growing.This gives children from all over the world the chance to read stories from and about Africa.Telling your own storiesThe best stories are the ones you make up yourself. This is not only possible with the African Storybook, it is encouraged. Many of the stories on the website are adaptations of stories that others have written. The picture database has thousands of pictures that can be used to make a new story, or added to an existing story.Stories can serve many purposes, and with the African Storybook and Global African Storybook Project, African children’s stories are more accessible than ever before, in African and non-African languages alike.There are over 100 stories to read from on the #AfricanStorybook website. http://t.co/5x57CXN02y pic.twitter.com/waQPpfta8b— AfricanStorybook.org (@africastorybook) April 16, 2015Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
