Coaches setting up training for one of the schoolboy teams at De La Salle F.C. in Williamstown on Tuesday week last made the spirit deflating discovery of their main storage container broken open with all equipment either stolen or damaged beyond use.

Part of this estimated loss is included a recent donation of €400 from a local business which had allowed the club purchase FAI regulation footballs and first aid

Q. If we all spoke the same language one day, it just might be a variety of a similect. Explain, please.

A. First, a few facts: Mandarin Chinese is spoken by the greatest number of people, over a billion; next is Spanish, and together the two languages are spoken in some 30 countries, says Hal Hodson in "New Scientist" magazine. Ranking third is English, found in at least 100 countries; it is the first language for some 335 million people, and the second language for another 555 million. Also, it dominates international relations, business and science.

Languages like German and Estonian will remain the

Waterford Today weekly horoscopes

Wednesday 25th September - Tuesday 31st October

Aries 21st March-21st April

You like to stay busy Aries, but be aware that a shed-load of commitments and massive to-do list can be a great excuse to avoid unprocessed emotions and generally not dealing with ‘our stuff’. But unless we face these uncomfortable facets of life, we carry them around with us, weighing us down and bubbling to the surface when we least expect it. Whatever it is/was - loss, disappointment, betrayal - face your feelings around it.

Taurus 22nd April-21st May

You could be about to break all your own rules Taurus, especially where love and romance are concerned. It could be that after being fiercely independant you decide you want to hitch your wagon to someone else’s after all. Or maybe you break way from your usual dating ‘type’ and take

Which personality are you?

We all have different layers within us that make up our whole being of mind, body and spirit. When I test people in my health clinics, certain homeopathic remedies come up, and invariably as well as relating to any physical ailments, the remedies also correlate with the person’s emotional and mental characteristics. There are eight homeopathic remedies that I most commonly prescribe: Aconite, Arsenicum, Aurum, Lycopodium, Nat Mur, Nux Vomica, Pulsatilla and Sepia. As well as being helpful for certain physical conditions, each of these remedies relates to the

positive and negative emotional make-up and energy of the individual. When prescribing homeopathic remedies, I always take into account the person’s underlying homeopathic personality or personalities.
