We will fill your skip for you! boomerang SKIPS & RECYCLING Jokes A little girl asked her mother, "How did the human race begin?" The mother answered, "God made Adam and Eve and they had children, and so all mankind was made." Two days later the girl asked her fa- ther the same question, "How did the human race begin?" The father an- swered, "Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved.” The confused girl returned to her mother and said, "Mom, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said they developed from monkeys?" The mother answered, "Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about my side of the family and your father told you about his." To succeed in politics, it is often nec- essary to rise above your principles. A woman and a man are involved in a car accident; it's a bad one. Both of their cars are totally demolished but amazingly neither of them are hurt. After they crawl out of their cars, the woman says, "So you're a man, that's interesting. I'm a woman. Wow, just look at our cars! There's nothing left, but fortunately we are unhurt. This must be a sign from God that we should meet and be friends and live together in peace for the rest of our days." Flattered, the man replied, "Oh yes, I agree with you completely!" "This must be a sign from God!" The woman continued, "And look at this, here's another miracle. My car is completely demolished but this bottle of wine didn't break. Surely God wants us to drink this wine and cele- brate our good fortune." Then she hands the bottle to the man, The man nods his head in agreement, opens it and drinks half the bottle and then hands it back to the woman. The woman takes the bottle, immedi- ately puts the cap back on, and hands it back to the man. The man asks, "Aren't you having any?" The woman replies, "No. I think I'll just wait for the police." The first little pig went into a bar. He ordered a hundred drinks, and after he drank every single one, he needed to relieve himself. He asked the bar- tender where the loo was, did his business and left. The second little pig came in, or- dered two hundred drinks, did his business, then left. The third and fourth little pig came in, ordered three and four hundred drinks respectively, did their busi- ness, then left. The fifth little pig came in, ordered five hundred drinks, and was about to leave, when the bartender stopped him and said, "Hey, don't you need to go to the loo?" "No, that's OK. I go wee wee wee all the way home." If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it will always be yours. If it doesn't come back, it was never yours to begin with. But, if it just sits in your living room, messes up your stuff, eats your food, uses your telephone, takes your mon- ey, and doesn't appear to realize that you had set it free... You either mar- ried it or gave birth to it.

We are a product of both our genetic map (which we can do nothing about) and how we have reacted to the various issues and events we encountered on our life’s journey to date. During this journey we have been socialised to be part of the crowd. While growing up, the middle ground was considered to be the safe space. If you stood out from the crowd you were likely to get a clip on the ear or a kick on your backside. The herd instinct was generally a big- ger influence on our lives as we be- come part of the club / gang / peer group. Over time many of the supposed pillars upon which society has been built have been subsequently eroded and are now being accepted as being disposable. These include marriages, honesty, be- liefs, respect for life and many more. This change process has been energised by others influencing our thoughts, feelings and beliefs, resulting eventual- ly in their desired agendas being achieved. Marketing is about triggering emotional desires for the advantage of the market- er. This is achieved by communicating emotionally with the inner brain and manipulating the target to be someone else at that decision moment. Consum- erism is a form of herding. Much of the herd directional influence has been lead by agenda leaders using the range of media channels in very creative ways. One of their most effective tactics is their selective use of role-models. It’s the association of their agenda with someone their target craves. The herd seems to follow the antlers of the celeb- rity and is following on the road fuelled by others. Many of these role models will over time be seen to be built on sand. The new you is supposed to be cool, fit, confident, good-looking and act as a Billboard for the latest designer labels. The trigger for this recycling back to solid basics will come via some unex- pected macro event, which will chal- lenge us to stand back and reassess where we are at, where we want to be and how best we might get there. Nature has a way of re-balancing itself. Evolution happens through a continu- ous process of micro variations, some of which eventually gain legs. Some of the most exotic plants in the world weren’t carefully bred, but evolved via mutation, where the gene pool got mixed up due to some combination of factors. We can't choose the family or circum- stances we were born into, but we can choose our new extended network of contacts. Life is an input / output mod- el. We cannot get out what we don’t put in. The quality of our input is the biggest contributor to our output. We mustn’t allow ourselves to be defined by what we haven't done. We must have more clarity about our desired destination and its various staging posts. We need to build some identity capital. We need to optimise our net- work of genuine supporters to help us start travelling down our planned route. If we know where we are going, we will always suck in the required sup- port. One cannot help those who don’t know where they want to get to. Everything in life has a price and we must consciously or sub-consciously decide if we are prepared to pay this price. Who have you been influenced by on your journey to date? Who in turn are you influencing? How good a role-model are you for your po- tential followers. Where are you leading them? Are you facilitating them to build their latent capacity to travel towards their desired objectives? Blaise Brosnan From disposal to recycle mode? by Blaise Brosnan

L/R Ben Buttimer,Robert Kennedy,Conor Meagher,Luke Herke,Dylan Ryan. Templemore Athletic Club is continuing to experience a wonderful year in Track & Field Athletics at County, Munster and National Level. Twenty seven National Medals were won in various All Ireland Competitions during the month of July alone. Eleven of these medals came from the vic- torious girls under 9 team at the National Championships in Ballybofey, Co. Done- gal. These girls were like a breath of fresh air in the Club. Their laughter, friendliness and support of each other was a joy to behold. They won Gold in the 4 x 100 metre relay; Silver in the 2 x 60 me- tres; also Silver in both the 2 x long jump and 2 x 300 metres. Team Members were: Molly Dooley, Molly Nevin, Katie Crous, Geena Quinlan, Tara Hoare Their coach is Sandra Gillick, who de- serves great credit for her efforts through- out the season. These girls have a great geographical spread residing as they do in Clonakenny, Templemore, Errill, Roscrea and Drom. Patrick Purcell (Upperchurch U13) who has been improving in every competition throughout 2013, at his chosen event the Shot Putt. Having secured the Silver Medal in the Munster Championship in Ennis in June he went on to win Gold in the National Championships with a fine throw of 11.96m. A great deal of work was done with Patrick by his coach Michael Hennessy, since the start of the year. Eva Rush (Templemore) collected her first All Ireland Medal when she finished in second place in the girls U14 race walk in a time of 11mins 41.8 sec. Simon Archer scaled new heights when he cleared 1.95 metres in the High Jump and just failed in setting a new Club record of 2.00m. His performance was outstanding, in front of a large crowd of spectators, supporters, family and friends. He was ice cool in the heat of competition and is certainly an excellent prospect for future years. Then to the relays, the boys U17 won Sil- ver in the 4 x 400m in a time of 3 mins 59 seconds. This team can go on to even greater success by training on a regular basis during the coming Autumn and Winter seasons. Team Members were: , David Hanly, Si- mon Archer, Tomas Varadi, Lukcaz Dudek, Paul Hanley, all residents of Tem- plemore. This team commenced the season when winning the senior relay (baton) at the East Munster Schools on May 8th in a time of 46.44 seconds. They then ran 46.38 at the Munster U19 Championship when finishing in second place. Then at the National Junior (Under 20) on 30th June the young men ran 46.34, in very wet conditions, to win All Ireland Bronze Medals. Then in glorious sun-shine on July 20th these lads ran 46.01 (which is a new Club Juvenile record) in the Under 19 Inter Club Relay. They ran on the Tipper- ary Inter County 4 x 100 Relay, with Si- mon, Lukcaz and Tomas collected further National Gold as members of this excel- lent team. Great credit must go to all the Club coach- es, Sandra, Frankie, Bronagh, Sheelagh, Aine, Jerry, Seamus, Michael, Martin, Ea- mon, Trevor and Niamh for the role they played in the success to date. Now for August and the National Devel- opment Games (B Championships) and the National Masters on August 17th in Tullamore. The Templemore Athletic Track is open seven days a week from 9.00am to 9.00pm. Contact 087 2096356 for further details. Wonderful Month for Templemore A.C. History will be made this August Bank Holiday when Catherine Maher of Devilsbit Macra na Feirme will rep- resent North Tipperary Macra at the International Miss Macra Festival. This will be the first time that Dev- ilsbit Macra will have a contestant in the competition in our ten year history. Catherine, a member of Macra for the last four years is currently Club Secre- tary and is considered by members 'the glue that keeps the Club together'. Catherine is also very busy in her role as Regional Competitions Chairperson as its her job to organise all Macra competitions for North Tipperary. She has also recently been elected Captain of the North Tipperary Macra Relay for Life Team which last year raised 3,500 Euros. Aside from her Macra activities Catherine works as a Chef in Bobby Reidy's Bar in Newtown, Nenagh and is receiving great support and best wishes from all the customers and staff. Excitement is growing in the Club and a huge contingent will be heading for Dundrum House Hotel. The Club wishes Catherine the very best of luck and are really looking forward to a brilliant weekend not to be missed. Devilsbit Macra na Feirme Photo shows Club Chairman and Mr Personality 2013 Paudie Meade wishing Catherine Maher best of luck in Miss Macra. As Chairperson of the Nenagh Elec- toral area I called for North Tipper- ary County Council to set up a dedicated phone line for the public to help identifying poor and overgrown signposting and dangerous junctions some of which are overgrown with grass. I am now upping the ante and I am asking for the public to get out their camera phones and take pic- tures of the damaged Signposts and signposts overgrown with grass and weeds and also the overgrown junc- tions and send them to me at or to my facebook page or indeed by phone to 0872859125 identifying the road number. Above, see one of the photographs that I took of signs in my own area (some of them used for target practice!) Morris calls for the public’s help in identifying poor signposts and dangerous junctions

It is widely accepted that educating a child in the public system to third-level costs about €60,000. With university fees reintroduced, par- ents may need to have substantially high- er savings for those expensive years. HOW MUCH WILL IT COST? A recent Independent commissioned sur- vey estimated that the annual cost of at- tending a public primary school was about €1,200 a year, taking into account such costs as transport, uniform, books and food. For secondary school, the an- nual costs rose to more than €2,000. So, to educate a child all the way up to the Leaving Certificate will cost you about €22,000. If fees are introduced across the board for Irish students and you don’t qualify for a grant, the cost of attending university for a child living away from home will jump to €60,000 over the course of four years. HOW MUCH DO I NEED TO SAVE? When it comes to putting money aside for your children’s education, two things are key – starting early and saving con- sistently. The best place to start is with child bene- fit, although this has become less attrac- tive of late. The current rate for child benefit is €130 per month for the first Second & Third child, €140 per month for the 4th and subsequent children (an- nounced in Budget 2012). Nevertheless, for a family with one child, saving this amount each month from the time the child is born and getting a return on your money of 4 per cent, you will have a nest egg of some €50,000 by the time the child is 18 – almost enough to pay for college, even if further fees have been reintroduced. WHAT SHOULD I INVEST IN? Several financial institutions offer a vari- ety of savings products dedicated to help- ing pay for education. Deposit accounts are often the most popular, but beware of the fine print. While deposit accounts may be best suit- ed to parents with older children, if your children are very young you might do better by investing in the stock market. Like savings accounts, there are some stock market-based products dedicated to saving for an education but again, this doesn’t mean that they are the best choice. How do I choose an investment that is right for me? As an investor, you want to achieve the highest possible return at a level of risk that suits you. The key is finding a bal- ance between the amount of risk you are willing to take and the potential returns you want to achieve. There are four main asset classes you can invest in, these include Cash (ie.deposit accounts mentioned above) Equities (stocks and shares), Property and Bonds ( office bonds etc). So by dealing with your local broker who has access to all the different investment options above, and after completing a “Risk Profile Questionnaire” you can be assured you are getting the most inde- pendent and best advice available for your childrens education.

Our Irish National Tandem-Para Time Tri- al Champions (2013) Peter Ryan and Damien Shaw will be present at this cycle. Peter Ryan of Drombane, and a member of UDCC, suffers from Leber’s Hereditary Optic Neu- ropathy which leads to the loss of central vision. Peter first experi- enced the effects of LHON at the age of 20 with his condition worsening by the time he turned 21, when he effectively lost sight in both eyes, Peter is now 23. Prior to Peter experiencing the effects of LHON, he was a keen GAA player for the Upperchurch Drombane Minor and Under 21 Hurling teams. He also played football and soccer for Upper- church Drombane. Peter was employed locally by OMC engi- neering; and has been unable to work since his condition deterio- rated. Following his sight loss, Peter has been focusing on building a life and finding a passion to take on. Following the success of the Irish Olympic and Paralympic teams in London 2012, the Cy- cling Ireland call for Para-cyclists in October 2012 was the catalyst that brought Peter and cycling together. Peter had his first race (a time trial) in March 2013 and while the team finished 3rd, it was a very respectable result for a new comer to cycling. Since then, Peter has focused on his training and was fortunate enough to get a pilot for the National Tandem- Para Time Trial Championships in June 2013, and along with his pilot Damien Shaw, put in a bril- liant effort to post the fastest time on the day. In the past UDCC has raised money for local charities (Suir Haven Hospice and Nenagh Re- hab), this year we have chosen to support Peter as he attempts to get on the Irish Cycling team for the World Tandem-Para cycling championships in Canada in Sep- tember. There will be 100km, 50km and 25km routes available on the day. Refreshments will be provided on the longer route and following all of the cycles in the Upperchurch Hall. Upperchurch is located in North Tipperary, we are sure you will enjoy the challenge and scenery of cycling in the Slieve Felim mountains.

Bearing in mind that anxiety has at least some biolog- ical basis, it makes sense that what we eat or imbibe affects our mood. There are substanc- es that aggravate anxiety such as stimulants, as already mentioned – caffeine, nicotine, and certain medications. We all know that caffeine keeps us alert, and prevents a good night’s sleep. In the context of anxiety, caf- feine causes the same arousal response as we experience when we suffer stress – a rush of adrenaline and increased nervous system ac- tivity. If we drink too much coffee, for exam- ple, some of us are risking putting ourselves in a constant state of tension and arousal that contributes to anxiety and panic. It also decreases our level of vitamin B1, which is an anti-stress vitamin. We should also be aware that caffeine is not only found in coffee, but also in tea, cola, chocolate and so on. We do not have to live a life of austerity, however, and deprive ourselves totally of coffee or other beverages. Bourne recommends that we reduce out intake to one cup per day. Yet, for some anxiety sufferers one cup may be sufficient to increase their anxiety. If you are a heavy consumer of coffee, you may suffer withdrawal symptoms if you abruptly change from 4 or 5 cups a day to one, so it is best to cut down gradually. Withdrawal symptoms often resemble being insane, and we must avoid this feeling. Some prescribed or over the counter drugs contain caffeine and have equally damaging effects in the context of anxiety and panic attacks. From what I understand, for exam- ple, Nurofen Plus and Solpadeine are two drugs that contain caffeine. If this is true taking too many of these increases the risk of anxiety. Several illicit drugs contain caffeine and other substances that increase the risk of anxiety, paranoia, hallucinations and panic attacks. Nicotine, chemicals and additives that make anxiety worse. Nicotine has as strong an effect as caffeine. I think that most of us are under the impression that smoking ‘calms the nerves’. Cigarette smokers claim that when they have their morning ‘fag’, they feel calmer. Yet why is it that smokers are more anxious than non- smokers? They do not sleep as well, and when they give up smoking, they tend to have less anxiety and panic. Medically it has been shown that nicotine increases physical arousal, constricts our veins and puts pres- sure on our heart. Smoking is, as you know, an addiction, and those who suffer from se- vere anxiety also tend to cut off their feel- ings. Addiction is one way to dull the feelings. Therefore, very anxious people are in danger of becoming addicts. Calming the nerves is a constant concern to them. Re- search shows that a significant percentage of smokers who have tried and failed to give up smoking have anxiety disorders, and even the prospect of giving up smoking fills them with anxiety. There are also substances, preservatives and hormones in meat that seriously affect our health and consequently our level of anxiety. We have seen the link between heart prob- lems and anxiety, and we now know that excessive salt raises our blood pressure and affects our heart. Excessive sugar can be equally damaging. Our bodies need a certain amount of sugar, as well as a certain amount of salt. Too much, however, damages our health and increases our anxiety, because poor health is a prime cause of anxiety. Glu- cose is the fuel that comes from sugar, and is necessary for energy. Generally, we get our sugar from our food, especially from carbo- hydrates. This process is slow and our bodies can handle it efficiently, but if we take pure sugar, it breaks down quickly and our sys- tems are overloaded too quickly with too much sugar. This results in difficulties with regulating the chemical reactions of the sugar (metabolism). Some people get excessively high levels of blood sugar while others suffer a decrease in levels causing anxiety, trem- bling, irritability, and dizziness and so on. As you can see these are also the symptoms of a panic attack. Therefore, if you wish to reduce the level of anxiety in your life from one particular source, have a look at your diet. Get rid of, or greatly reduce, as much simple sugar as you can, including sweets, ice cream, and des- serts. The important thing is to get a stable blood sugar level. I feel very concerned at the presence of so many chemicals to preserve food and en- hance its taste. There are over 5,000 chemi- cals in existence today and some of them are lethal to our health. Consider, for example, the amount of cancer around right now. Look at the statistics for breast cancer. I remember women dying from breast cancer in the 1960s, but it was nothing like as prevalent as it is today. I am convinced that it is connected to the amount of chemicals in our food. Con- sider the impact of cancer on the person who gets it and on their families. There is nothing as shocking as being told you have cancer. The anxiety that this produces is long term, and the thought always lurks that it may return even after being given the all clear. Bourne offers a 12 point summary of low stress/anxiety guidelines about reducing stimulants, caffeine, nicotine, consumption of refined sugar, foods that give you aller- gies, red meat, increasing dietary fibre (whole grains, brans and raw vegetables), increasing the amount of water you drink every day, and so on. He also looks at supple- ments for anxiety such a B Vitamins and Vitamin C. He advocates an adequate amount of calcium, which has a calming effect, the lack of which can contribute to anxiety. Bourne also lists various relaxing herbs, bearing in mind that he is writing for Ameri- cans. He mentions Ginkgo Biloba and Saint- John’s-Wort, which, as far as I know, are not available in Ireland.
