Strange but - True!

By Bill Sones and Rich Sones, PhD

Q. A "hot zone" in the dreaming brain shines a cool light on its hidden meaning. Explain, please.

A. Neuroscientist Benjamin Baird and consciousness expert Giulio Tononi and their team used scalp electrodes to record sleepers' brain waves via high-density electroencephalography, says Tanya Lewis in "Scientific American" magazine. They woke people at frequent intervals to ask if they’d been dreaming and what about, garnering about 1000 waking accounts. "The team identified a ‘hot zone’… near the back of the head, where low-frequency brain waves (linked to unconsciousness) decreased and high-frequency activity rose when people said they had been dreaming" ("Nature Neuroscience"). In another experiment, "the scientists predicted with 87% accuracy whether the participants were dreaming, and brain-wave activity in certain brain regions was linked to specific dream content, including locations, faces and

Don’t be fooled!

Last week I wrote about a series of talks I gave to local politicians from across Ireland. The subject matter of both my talks and that article covered the importance of looking after your mental health and staying positive in the face of almost constant criticism. With no intended irony, I wrote "The general public in Ireland are quick to give out about politicians, and in many cases, that reaction is completely justified. Though it may be hard to believe, however, most politicians actually do have a heart (!), and many of them do a good job in the circumstances, particularly at local level."

This week, it was my intention to share a few more general insights

Small Claims Procedure


I am not happy with work that a builder did on my house and will have to pay for someone else to finish the job properly. What can I do to recoup the additional expense?

Sinn Féin spokesperson Brexit and Workers’ Rights David Cullinane TD said that the issue of low-hour contracts, not zero-hour contracts, is the one facing workers today and that the government’s proposals are weak and ineffective.

The Waterford TD said:

"The government’s proposal to tackle zero-hour working practices is a white elephant.

"Zero-hours working practices have been severely restricted in the south since 1997. The issue is low-hour and if-and-when contracts.

"They have led to serious issues in terms of employment security and stability for ordinary workers and they should be curtailed through legislation

"This was the main finding of the University of Limerick report into the issue of work contracts in 2015.

"The government's proposals will not do that as they are designed to ‘outlaw’ a practice that is at the margins of contract arrangements, while ignoring the key issue which is precarious work.

"I have produced

    A class taoiseachEven though an approval rating of 49% by the public doesn't sound like an extraordinarily high figure for politicians today it really is and it is a really good figure for any sitting Taoiseach to have. Leo Varadkar is popular for many reasons but perhaps one of the main ones is that he really hasn't been tested in any significant way since being elected to the top position in the country. He was elected just as the house was wrapping up for their elongated summer holidays and it is only …
