Well this is useful, although it does seem to state the obvious: Although it may still be below the average for 10 western European countries, job stress in Ireland more than doubled from 8 per cent in 2010 to 17 per cent in 2015, the ESRI said this week. The think tank also found that […]A

Discrimination is alive and kicking in Ireland. Two weeks ago, the Central Statistics Office published the results of a survey it conducted between January and March this year (web version here, 22-page PDF here). People were asked if they had experienced discrimination in the previous two years. Nearly a fifth of those surveyed said they […]A

This from the Atlantic on Twitter is interesting. For all its much vaunted influence the piece notes that despite the froth of excitement on the platform over the released of the Mueller Report, supposedly the defining moment of the Trump presidency, there was no impact at all on his poll ratings – negative or positive. […]A

Away and taking a break, but this caught my eye earlier in the week. Someone well known to this particular column (are there column’s on blogs?) actually makes some solid points in this piece on Brexit in the IT. For example, he points to the counter-productive manner in which various parties functioned in the positioning […]A

Another epochal revolution – perhaps, do I tentatively suggest, arguably the most epochal? Here’s a serious question, where do people suggest is good in Paris on Bastille Day? All recommendations gratefully accepted.A

Anyone from here get to Stereolab this last month? Met a lot of people there but only saw one CLR-linked person in the distance. I?ve always liked Stereolab, but much more their early recordings as noted here. But, got to say, I was surprised how much I enjoyed the gig overall. There?s something both compelling […]A

I like this piece here in the Guardian written by Australian writer Malla Nunn whose heritage is mixed-race South African. She pushes back against the idea that only those who are of a culture can write (or indeed, and this is more pernicious, should write) about that culture or race. It seems to me that […]A

A really interesting band that moved to Dublin in 1999 from Mexico. Having been previously been part of a Heavy Metal band they kind of mix metal rifs and Mexican style guitar. Have seen them a number of times live and they are excellent.A

John Bolton has been worrying me this last while. Worrying me? Well, perhaps I mean I?ve been worried on his behalf. Worried on his behalf? Well, okay, that?s a stretch, his politics and mine are near antithetical. Still it has struck me in recent weeks his tenure at the White House as national security advisor […]A
