  • 5. Teaching, Ireland Historical Did you know that in Ireland, a long time ago, it was against the law under English rule for an Irish man or woman to be a teacher? But, the Irish have always had a love of learning, so they did whatever they could to educate their children. They created secret places where teachers could teach their students in safety. These became known as "Hedge Schools" because they were often tucked away under hedges in the countryside. Other secret places were under ruined walls, in dry ditches by the roadside, or in old barns. Most of these schools didn't have books, paper or pencils, so the children learned their lessons by listening to the teacher and then repeating the words of Click

Broken Heart Universal Present/Past How long will it be before you can get through your daily routine without feeling the wave of pain sweep over you, without sensing that knot in the pit of your stomach, without dwelling on what went wrong? If these are some of the questions you are asking yourself, you are not alone. A broken heart can cause such an intense reaction that many of us feel our lives have been completely stripped of meaning. Jobs, hobbies, and friends no longer hold any joy for us.

  • 7. Prostitution Washington, USA 19th Century Mary Ann Hall catered to the nation’s elite in Washington as the proprietor of the capital’s best brothel during the Civil War. Capitol on Maryland Avenue on what now is part of the Mall, her house, a three-story structure nearly the size of a city block, included parlors, an elegant dining room and, almost assuredly, the most attractive of the city’s estimated 5,000 “soiled doves.” Prostitution was not a crime in the 19th century, and any concentration of troops during the Civil War attracted flocks of “camp followers” who were Click

 available for a price. Women often would show up after battles and offer their services to the generals as nurses. The “nursing,” however, frequently became an open door to those less honest and caring, and when armies experienced theft, prostitution and other less traditional forms of nursing, generals sometimes rejected offers of female help. The slang word for prostitute, hooker, is generally thought to have originated during the Civil War. For generations, rumors claimed that Union Gen. “Fighting Joe” Hooker had inspired the nickname by his amorous relationships. 07/10/10

  • 9. Flintstones Hollywood, USA 1960-1966 The Flintstones is an animated American television sitcom that ran from September 30, 1960 to April 1, 1966 on ABC. Produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions, The Flintstones is about a working class Stone Age man's life with his family and his next door neighbor and best friend. Critics and fans alike agree that the show was an animated imitation of The Honeymooners with rock puns thrown in. William Hanna admitted that "At that time "The Honeymooners" was the most popular show on the air, and for my bill, it was the funniest show on the air. The characters, I thought, were terrific. Now, that Click

 influenced greatly what we did with "The Flintstones"...."The Honeymooners" was there, and we used that as a kind of basis for the concept." However Joseph Barbera disavowed these claims in a separate interview, stating that "I don't remember mentioning "The Honeymooners" when I sold the show, but if people want to compare "The Flintstones" to "The Honeymooners," then great. It's a total compliment. "The Honeymooners" was one of the greatest shows ever written."[1] Its popularity rested heavily on its juxtaposition of modern-day concerns in the Stone Age setting.[2][3] . 07/10/10

  • 11. Storytelling Ireland Present Ireland is famed throughout the world for the art of storytelling. The seancaithe and scéalaí, the Tradition Bearers and Storytellers, passed the old stories down through the generations. Today, in the 21st Century, there has been a revival of the ancient art. Founded in 2003, Storytellers of Ireland / Aos Scéal Éireann is an All-Ireland voluntary organisation with Charitable Status. Our aim is to promote the practice, study and knowledge of oral storytelling in Ireland through the preservation and perpetuation of traditional storytelling and the development of storytelling as a contemporary art. We aim to foster storytelling skills among all age groups, from all cultural backgrounds. We also aim to Click

Master
sub1tle

 explore new contexts for storytelling in public places – in schools, community centres and libraries, in care centres and prisons, in theatres, arts centres and at festivals throughout the entire island of Ireland. Storytelling is an intimate and interactive art. A storyteller tells from memory rather than reading from a book. A tale is not just the spoken equivalent of a literary short story. It has no set text, but is endlessly re- create in the telling. The listener is an essential part of the storytelling process. For stories to live, they need the hearts, minds and ears of listeners. Without the listener there is no story. 07/10/10

The unfolding controversy has been reported by our Western Correspondent, Lorna Siggins, ever since. In an extract from her new book she recalls how, in late 2006, heightened security and escalating protests caused the situation to boil over. SUPT JOE GANNON was assigned to Belmullet, in Co Mayo, in July 2006. Later that autumn he described a scene that resembled a conflict zone at Ballinaboy, where Shell was trying to build a terminal to bring gas ashore from its Corrib field, 80km offshore. The Click

 entrance to the site had been “blocked for a year and a half”, and “local people had a veto on who went in and out”. The Garda’s remit was to ensure there were no arrests and no “martyrs”. At Shell’s compound at Rossport anyone arriving in a jeep, whether or not they were from the oil company, would be “surrounded by these locals and their cars, and questioned for anything up to three- quarters of an hour”, he told Garda Review magazine. “I felt that it was time to take the ground back, as is my responsibility as the district officer . . . People have constitutional rights to go about their lawful business unhindered.” 07/10/10

Shannon was with the band for eighteen months, and contributed both accordion and fiddle to their Room to Roam album. Her first world tour was with The Waterboys. Like Wickham, she left the group when Scott and group member Anthony Thistlethwaite wanted to move the band back to a more rock and roll sound. 07/10/10

  • 17. Conversation Ireland Ongoing Irish generally prefer direct eye contact. People who avoid eye contact may not be perceived as trustworthy. The Irish are enthusiastic conversationalists and debaters. A wide range of topics may be open to discussion, including religion and politics. The best policy, however, is to wait for your Irish companions to bring up these two subjects; be prepared to hear very strong and often confrontational opinions and be aware that both subjects are highly contentious in Ireland due to the country's history of invasion [see Introduction to Ireland]. The Irish find arguments and opinionated conversation entertaining, so don't hesitate to express your views if Click
to

Master

 they are sincere and informed. If they're not, you could be seen to be arrogant. The Irish are extremely proud of their history and expect visitors--particularly the English--to appreciate their years of suffering, conflict and victory as a Republic. If you are English, be prepared sometimes for a frosty welcome, though this can usually be overcome with sincerity and good conversation. The Irish do not stand for arrogance of any kind! 07/10/10

  • 18. Story through pictures Ireland Past and present Ireland has been inhabited since 8000 BC when the climate had become more hospitable following the retreat of the polar icecaps of the latest ice age. Celtics started coming to the island in the 6th century BC, where language and cultural exchanges were made in Ireland. In the year 432 AD, St. Patrick arrived and transformed Irish society by introducing the Roman alphabet, and by converting the Irish to Christianity. Ireland was invaded by the Vikings in the 8th century AD who remained for two hundred years. It was the Vikings who founded Dublin in the year 988. England began seizing land in the 12th century, but Click

 many areas remained in Irish hands until the 16th century. A great famine occurred in Ireland between the years 1845 and 1847. During that time 1.5 million Irish died, and about one million emigrated to the United States, France, Switzerland and Canada. In 1922, 26 Catholic counties of Ireland gained independence from the United Kingdom. The remaining six counties remained in the UK and became Northern Ireland, which was mostly Protestant. 07/10/10

  • 19. Storytelling Worldwide Ongoing Since people began to communicate with each other, "Tell me a story" has been a request of both children and adults. Storytelling is one person telling others of something. The story can be of a real event or it can be made up. Storytelling is often a part of our everyday conversations. It is one of the earliest forms of folkart, it probably first consisted of simple chants that praised the dawn, expressed the joy of being alive, and were used to ease the drudgery and boredom of laborious tasks. Later the storyteller became the community entertainer by combining their stories with poetry, music, and dance. The storyteller also evolved into the group historian. Click

 This was the beginning of professional storytelling Storytelling during the Middle Ages was expanded into the art of the traveling troubadour, who journeyed across the land. They were welcomed in castle, court, and market place. They gathered the news, conveyed the best tales, and were expected to know the favorites in each region. The invention of moveable type and the development of the print publishing business led to reading replacing listening, and the decline of storytelling.. 07/10/10

There are at least a dozen active goat packers in Utah, from Logan to St. George. "Goats are about the friendliest animal you can get," Zimmerman said. "Some goats will even rest their head Click

  • 74. Conversation Cafe Conversation Week Spring 2011 Originally the Conversation Café was designed to be in the “public square”—in a café, restaurant or community room—to reverse the taboo against “talking to strangers.” The method was designed so that friends, neighbors and strangers could meet in a café and have a stimulating conversation among people with diverse views but a shared desire for good exchanges with others. Now, the Conversation Cafe method is used in many places—cafes, classrooms, churches, conferences, community rooms and more. It’s yours to use where and when you want. Cafés, restaurants and pubs are perfect sites. They are public. They serve food and drink, so there is nothing to Click

They are free to you as a host, though please encourage all participants to “pay the rent” by buying something to eat or drink. Check the noise level—try for something fairly quiet. Anyone in the establishment can join in, making good conversation available to anyone—not just an invited and select few. 07/10/10

Sport for sports sake is worthwhile endeavour and one that we are happy to promote and develop. Sport has been an integral and important part of my life since I was a child. I was fortunate to have a family, teachers and coaches who encouraged me to make the best of my talent. It is more than physical activity, Click
