Enrolment is open now at www.irishschoolofreflexology.comIrish School of Reflexology“The demand for Reflexology is growing,” says Tatiana Grosso Lawless, Principal of the Irish School of Reflexology.“More people are getting into Complementary and Holistic Therapies, because they start to understand that health is the results of a balanced life – mentally, physically, spiritual; and diet is important too.“They start to understand that we cannot be healthy if one of these factors is missing. We cannot be physically healthy if our mental health is not there. Our patients find also they get more long-lasting results with the help of Reflexology and they came back because of that.“At the Irish School of Reflexology, we provide professional training in traditional Reflexology that enables students to build their own successful practice or add to their existing healthcare practice. “The sequence we teach is the Eunice Ingham’s sequence, which I learned from my teacher Sr. Brega Whelan, a real pioneer of Reflexology in Ireland. She has been practicing Reflexology since 1982 and I was lucky enough to be in her last class, before her retirement and it has proven to be very effective as we use it all the time in our practices. “In our classes, we don’t teach a foot massage, but Traditional Reflexology! And it is our treatment what makes us stand out from other schools. Sometimes what is taught is more like a foot massage, but at the Irish School of Reflexology, we are very proud of our sequence.”Irish School of ReflexologyTatiana added: “Helping others to heal is our mission and the priority in everything that we teach. We aim to offer our students a fulfilling learning experience and build confidence in their ability to help others.“Our overall mission is to promote healing through the benefits of Reflexology.” Irish School of ReflexologyThe school is affiliated with the NRRI (National Register of Reflexologists Ireland) and fully accredited.At the end of the year, students will take exams to earn their Diploma in Traditional Foot Reflexology. Students are supported with regular assessments, practice and homework to provide them with the knowledge to succeed.The course is a great opportunity to learn about Reflexology, meet like-minded people and make new friends. The standard of the training we provide is very high and the aim is to train professional therapists to start their own Reflexology business upon certification, to go to work in hospital, hospice and more.Irish School of ReflexologyA past student of the Irish School of Reflexology, who also works as a counsellor, said that studying reflexology has given her another way to support her clients.“In my practice I would meet a lot of clients who find themselves experiencing anxiety on a daily basis. For these clients, they have found that talking therapy was a very scary place to be at first, and tried other options. The main trend I’ve noticed with them is that they all had tried reflexology, and found themselves enjoying the treatment, teaching them to relax and remove signs of sore heads, eye pressure, sore shoulders, back and leg tension etc.“ISR has given me more tools to support clients but it has also taught me that it is really important to look after your own mental health and now I’m bringing it into the home where my husband and children are looking forward to me trying what I’ve learned on them, opening up communication.”She added: “I’m really enjoying the course and having it in Co Donegal is great for the county. It is lovely meeting new people and seeing everyone so excited in completing the course. Everyone is so helpful and I’m finding the notes a great help in studying. Thank you, Tatiana and Denise, for a wonderful course!”For more information, visit the website www.irishschoolofreflexology.comOr call Tatiana on 0862071065.Looking for a new career?

Work is set to begin on a bridge in Inishowen with the construction of the project set to be concluded by the end of the year. In March, Donegal County Council confirmed that the project had passed planning stage and it was due to go out to tender.It is understood that funding for the bridge will come from the emergency flood grant sanctioned from the government. The Meenamulligan Bridge collapsed during heavy flash floods in August 2017 leaving families isolated and a temporary bridge had to be assembled.Donegal County Council confirmed that a compulsory purchase order (CPO) of some of the surrounding land was necessary to go ahead with the construction and that work would begin once the statutory processes had been completed.Local Inishowen Councillor, Jack Murray, told Donegal Daily: “There is going to a new bridge now by the end of the year for the residents, funding has been secured, and construction should begin soon.“I raised the issue with John McLaughlin, the Council’s Director of Service, and I spoke with him personally and expressed the importance of this bridge. “He fully took that on board and he told me that it would be done as quickly as possible.”In the aftermath of the flash flooding on August 22, 2017, the Donegal County Council replaced the Meenamulligan Bridge with a temporary structure which also flooded on a number of occasions.“There was a temporary bridge put in place after the flooding and the residents welcomed that at the time but it was never meant for the long-term.“It flooded a couple of times and it was designed in a way in which to flood,” Murray added. “It was a temporary bridge and it was built to be able to take the water without collapsing.“But a couple of times a year residents have been unable to go to and from their homes. “So, this new bridge now will stop their frustration because it was frustrating for the residents living there.“They are taxpayers like everybody else and they deserve roads to be able to access their homes and they will be delighted now once this bridge has been put in place.”Delight for families in Inishowen as bridge destroyed by flood set to be replaced was last modified: July 3rd, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

Thabo Mbeki and Frederik van Zyl Slabbert at the Dakar Conference in 1987. (Source image: Netwerk24.com)Johannesburg, Monday 10 July 2017 – As part of the Commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the Dakar 1987 Talks and Celebration activities around the Twinning of Robben and Goree Islands, Brand South Africa, in partnership with the Department of Arts and Culture, the National Arts Council, SA Embassy in Senegal, DIRCO and Senegalese Ministry of Arts and Culture, will host a series of activities in the week of 10-14 July 2017.In the context of South Africa’s liberation – political dialogue played a significant role in the nation’s transition to democracy. In this regard, the 1987 meeting in Dakar between the ANC and an IDASA delegation, stands out as a significant moment in the history of South Africa’s journey towards democracy.Brand South Africa’s CEO, Dr Kingsley Makhubela said: “The Dakar Conference would not have been possible were it not for the assistance of countries like Senegal and then President Abdou Diouf, who paved the way for delegates to meet during a period when liberation movements were still banned internally, and the Apartheid regime still presided over a pariah state sanctioned and internationally isolated.”“Likewise, the assistance that came from governments and individuals who contributed material resources to make the conference possible further attests to the fact that the liberation movement was not alone in its struggle against apartheid South Africa.”Contemporary developments in South Africa and elsewhere on the continent indicate that political dialogue is not a once-off. It remains a crucial feature of societies transitioning towards democracy and transforming an unequal socio-economic environment.In global terms, and particularly on the African continent, the success of conflict management and mediation, conflict prevention, and resolution as well as intervention, are all linked to the ability and capability of political rivals to engage in constructive political dialogue.As part of the week-long activities, Brand South Africa in partnership with the Dakar-based CODESRIA host a Colloquium on Thursday 13 July 2017, under the theme, the Power of Dialogue – Past, Present and Future. During the week, the two countries will also sign a Twinning Agreement between Robben- and Goree Islands. This is a significant moment not only to reflect on the past, but to celebrate what Senegal and South Africa have in common.Dr Makhubela added: “The Colloquium will bring together experts on conflict mediation and resolution from government, civil society and academia, to discuss the role of political dialogue in conflict prevention, mediation, and resolution on the African continent and beyond. The session will also focus on drawing the youth into the dialogue – the goal being not only to impart knowledge but also to provide a platform for them to share their views on the power of dialogue.”The Colloquium will cover three sessions, where delegates from South African and Senegalese government and other role players will share their experiences and insights with attendees. This will provide the background for further reflections in the second panel discussion between Dakarites from Senegal and South Africa, with the final session focussing on political dialogue in Africa today.For more information or to set up interviews, please contact:Tsabeng NthiteTel: +27 11 712 5061Mobile: +27 (0) 76 371 6810Email:[email protected] www.brandsouthafrica.com
Mponegele Le Iterele Orphan Centre in Limpopo has not only fed and educated the children of GaMagoa Village, but also helped many of them become professionals in various fields therefore lifting them out of poverty. (Image: Shamin Chibba)Throughout rural South Africa, orphaned and vulnerable children face the same sorts of challenges: they are not fed well enough, many live with their grandparents, and they live in communities where crime, alcoholism and drug abuse is rife.Yet there are people like Matjididi Mokono, who have devoted their lives to helping these children rise above their dire circumstances and leap above their expectations for themselves. Mokono, a former school principal, started Mponogele Le Iterele Orphan Centre in the village of GaMagoa, Limpopo, to feed and educate the local children.Brand South Africa and Eskom were at Mponegele for Mandela Month to refurbish the centre. New troughs were built, the walls were repainted and new plumbing was installed.Rodney Moloko, Brand South Africa’s stakeholder relations manager, said one did not need to have money or distribute it to make a difference. “It is the little that you do for others that can make this country a better place.”Rhulani Matshidze, the general manager of Eskom Limpopo, said that selflessness was the key to building a stronger South Africa. “We are not born to think of ourselves only. We have to be selfless.”Mponegele Le Iterele Orphan Centre before it was renovated for Mandela Day this year. Matjididi Mokono obtained the premises in 2005, and could start serving the children food within these walls instead of under a tree as she had been doing. (Image: Mponegele Le Iterele Orphan Centre)IT STARTED UNDER A TREEMokono was motivated to help the children in her village after hearing about two brothers and a sister who were separated after their parents and grandparents died. “When I asked the sister, ‘My girl, where are your brothers?’ she said ‘Some people took them. I don’t even know.’ They were taken by relatives that the girl didn’t even know. It means they will grow up scattered.”She started Mponegele to “help the children and support their family members who feel overloaded too”. The first thing she did was gather the children under a tree, and give bread to them.Not long thereafter, she opened six orphanages, each of which was run by retired teachers. But since they did not put their hearts into it, Mokono did most of the work. In the end, she gave each retiree a centre. Three of the six centres are still running today.The orphans stayed with close relatives, said Mokono. They go to the centre after school where they are fed and taught how to read, write, garden and sew. More importantly, the centre has a computer room where children are taught to use computers. The computers were donated by various companies in the past, including Eskom. “I told them computer [literacy] is compulsory so we hone their computer skills.”An artist plays his part for Mandela Day as he paints a mural on Mponegele’s wall. (Image: Shamin Chibba)FUNDS ARE TIGHTThere is just one benefactor in Polokwane who donates bread, chicken and maize meal once a month. “There is food to feed but there should be people to prepare. People who prepare must get a stipend. But there is no money,” said Mokono.Though she said finding funds to keep the centre running was her biggest challenge, she did receive aid from Friends of Mponegele, a charity in the UK. Set up by Sylvia Weir, the organisation not only helps the orphan centre with financial donations, but it also provides funds for the children’s tertiary education.Some of the young men and women who went to Mponegele for support have gone on to become professionals in various industries. Thabiso Mashatola has a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Wits University and is currently completing his Masters. “Myself and others from Mponegele have proven that this facility has and continues to play a huge role in assisting and changing the lives of many deserving children in our communities,” he said.Madjadji Mailula took a course in hospitality at Capricorn FET College and with the help of Mponegele, has completed her level four certificate. “Mponegele was like a biological parent to me. It ensured that I didn’t go to bed and to school with an empty stomach and it gave me a better education.”

A dispute over abortion and family-planning services has stalled a Nebraska state budget bill for the second time, prompting a rebuke from the Speaker of the Legislature.Lawmakers voted 31-7 on Friday to force an end to debate on the measure, two short of what was required.The vote leaves the budget in limbo with time running out in this year’s session.At issue is a provision that would prevent health clinics from getting federal family-planning money if they perform abortions or provide referrals to groups that do.Speaker of the Legislature Jim Scheer says he was disappointed with the vote because a few senators broke their promises to vote in favor of ending the debate.Scheer says senators need to “grow up” and find a compromise.AP
COLLEGE PARK, MD – OCTOBER 03: Head coach Jim Harbaugh of the Michigan Wolverines (L) jogs off the fiedl with his brother Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh (R) following halftime of the Michigan and Maryland Terrapins game at Byrd Stadium on October 3, 2015 in College Park, Maryland. (Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images)It’s a safe bet that Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, who also played for the Wolverines, isn’t a fan of Michigan State. But for at least one day in 1999, he intentionally wore Spartan green. This week, WXTZ-TV in Detroit unearthed footage of Harbaugh celebrating with the 1999 Michigan State basketball team during their national title run.Why does this exist? Harbaugh’s sister, Joani, is married to Tom Crean, who was then MSU’s assistant coach. Crean is now the head coach at Indiana.Harbaugh probably isn’t thrilled that this footage exists. But if his team beats MSU tomorrow, he probably won’t care.
New Delhi: With the Indian ODI team struggling to find a solid hand in the middle-order, former skipper Sourav Ganguly has once again made it clear that the five wise men of Indian cricket need to give Test deputy Ajinkya Rahane a go. Taking to Twitter, Ganguly wrote that it was important for the selectors — led by MSK Prasad — to pick same players across format and give them a long run just as has been the case with great teams over the years. He also went on to add that the selectors shouldn’t try to please everyone. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh”Time has come for Indian selectors to pick same players in all formats of the game for rhythm and confidence… too few are playing in all formats… great teams had consistent players… it’s not about making all happy but picking the best for the country and be [email protected] There are many in the squad who can play all formats ..surprised not to see shubman gill ..Rahane in the one day squad..” This is not the first time that Ganguly has backed Rahane to be a part of the ODI team. Last year he had said the same during India’s tour of England. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced later”I have no doubt that India needs Rahane in the middle-order in both Tests and ODIs. Being dropped after doing well in the shorter-format could have hurt his confidence. Rahane seems like someone who is a big confidence player and this is where Kohli’s role becomes important. “He needs to put his arms around Rahane’s shoulder and give him that boost. “In the past generation, most of the top players played both formats for India — Tests and ODIs. If after so many years, the team management still hasn’t been able to show him that confidence and faith, then that needs to be worked on immediately,” he had said.
