Noel’s guide to navigating modern Irish life – in style!

first_imgDonegal hotelier and showbiz personality Noel Cunningham is today celebrating the launch of his book – Noel Cunningham’s Guide to Modern Irish Manners.As the General Manager of Harvey’s Point, Noel is a familiar face in the hospitality and entertainment sector. Now, he has turned his hand to writing to share his knowledge of etiquette with the world.Born in Kilcar, Noel was taught from a young age, both at home and at school, that ‘manners will bring you around the world’. He has rubbed shoulders with royalty, film stars, world leaders, and people from all walks of life. And he believes that good manners act as a springboard to success in all areas of life.The O’Brien PressNoel’s practical guide to modern manners mixes his wit with old-fashioned etiquette to give people advice on every situations – from what to wear for occasions, to mobile phone use, to first dates, special ceremonies, common courtesies and even wakes and funerals.Speaking to Donegal Daily, Noel said: “I’m very excited about my book, it’s a guide to modern manners. It’s fun, it’s not stodgy, it’s not preachy. But I believe that manners matter, for interviews, for life in general for those special occasions and every detail from the cradle to the grave is covered in my book.“So, if you were organising your wedding it’s the perfect book. I even talk about funerals and christenings. It’s a magical little book that will live and last for years and years, so go out and buy it.” He adds: “This book aims to be an informative and entertaining guide to modern etiquette and good manners – to help us know what to do in all social situations. After all, manners can bring us around the world – in style.”Noel Cunningham’s Guide to Modern Irish Manners is available in book shops now and also as an eBook online at www.obrien.ieNoel’s guide to navigating modern Irish life – in style! was last modified: October 7th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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) Tags:booketiquetteNoel CunninghamNoel Cunningham’s Guide to Modern Irish Mannerslast_img read more

Human Genome Individuality Adds New Questions

first_imgMission accomplished: “The Human Genome Project” was in the bag by 2003.  Now we understand how humans are genetically wired, right?  Not so fast.  Another human genome was just published, raising a whole new set of questions.  The big issue is that we all have two genomes in one – one from each parent.  Biologists knew this, of course, but for the first time, those two genomes were untangled from one another, and a lot of differences were found: two million, in fact.  How do our two separate genomes behave toward each other?  And if genomes differ this much, what does a concept like “the human genome” really mean? The Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics just published the dual genomes of a 51-year-old German male.  (This contrasts with the mixed genomes from several individuals used in the Human Genome Project.)  A write-up on Science Daily explained, Current sequencing technologies do not deliver both sets of chromosomes separately but instead provide a composite of both versions. Therefore, the scientists had to develop a new method to be able to identify the different sequences of genetic letters for both versions of the chromosomes separately. “In essence, we each have two genomes, inherited from each of our parents, and we need to look at these separately and at their interactions to fully understand the biology of genomes,” says Margret Hoehe, leader of the research group. “We constantly refer to ‘the’ genome. However, it is essential for the development of personalised medicine that an individual’s two sets of chromosomes are considered separately as they can differ regarding their genetic codes and, consequently also, their encoded functions.” The team found many differences between them.  “Importantly,” the article stressed, “90 percent of the genes exist in two different molecular forms.”  They differed at two million positions, and three million base pairs (single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs).  Further, “Between 60 and 70 percent, i.e. the majority of the genes, only arise in their characteristic molecular forms in the individual whose genome has just been analysed.”  Hoehne explained that this means “that the biology of genes and genomes has a strong individual component.”  This has profound consequences for human health.  When mutations are found on one gene, they can be compensated for by the normal gene—if that gene is dominant.  For instance, in this individual, there were two mutations on one chromosome in the infamous BRCA1 gene known to be involved in breast cancer, but since the other was normal, the individual had a healthy copy.  “Overall, the scientists identified 159 mutated genes in their test subject with a disease-predisposing potential, which can impair the function of proteins,” the article said.  “In 86 of these genes, the mutations were found in the same copy of the gene.”  Having two copies of the genes can thus act as a mutational sponge to avoid disease.  “A gene can only make a person sick if one form of it overrides the other or if both copies are affected.” The researchers noted that their findings raise “new and fundamental questions” about genetics, including, “How do the two different molecular forms of a gene behave towards each other? Do they work together or against each other? Which of the two gene forms is dominant and why?”  It’s clear that the mixed genomes sequenced to date, not only in humans but in many other organisms, may be obscuring the answers to these fundamental questions, including the phylogenetic inferences drawn from genomes that may turn out to be non-representative.  These worries, combined with the rising interest in epigenetics (non-coded heritable structures and functions), and the “strong individual component” in our personalized genomes, raise an even more vexing question: how much do we really know what we think we know about molecular biology? Well, one thing we know as FACT is that evolution is a fact fact FACT and anyone who dares question it is an anti-science, bigoted nincompoop.  (This said to pacify our gracious and thoughtful skeptical friends, and to spare them depression caused by the shattering thought of scientism being vulnerable.)(Visited 29 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Holm aiming for upset of Justino, 2nd title belt at UFC 219

first_imgJust over two years after Holm (11-3) won the UFC bantamweight title with a jaw-dropping stoppage of Ronda Rousey, Holm is a big underdog when she steps into the T-Mobile Arena cage in Las Vegas to take her shot at Justino (18-1) for the featherweight belt.Justino seems unbeatable. The Brazilian hasn’t lost since her MMA debut in 2005, and she has honed a physical, pounding style that no fighters have solved — or even survived to the bell in any fight since 2008.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderBut Rousey seemed equally unbeatable when she entered the cage with Holm in Australia — and the whole world saw what happened when Holm kicked Rousey in the head.“I think there are similarities with the feeling of it,” said Holm, who also had her share of impressive wins as a professional boxer before entering MMA. “I think that because I’ve done it more than once now, in boxing and (more prominently) with Ronda, to be the underdog and come in, I think that people think, ‘Oh, OK, well, Holly is capable of doing some things.’ But I feel like there’s more of a curiosity behind it. Not necessarily just thinking I can’t do it, but kind of, ‘Hmm, I wonder if she’s going to do it this time.’” Read Next Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH The UFC is hoping that plenty of people are wondering what will happen when the promotion wraps up an eventful 2017 with its traditional end-of-the-year show in its hometown.The UFC 219 card also includes the long-awaited return of lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov (24-0), who hasn’t fought all year and has been in the cage only three times since April 2014. The Dagestan-born Russian, who missed weight for a much-anticipated bout with new lightweight champion Tony Ferguson in March, will take on Brazil’s Edson Barboza.The pay-per-view portion of the card begins with the return of popular welterweight Carlos Condit, who will take on durable veteran Neil Magny.Justino has won eight straight fights by stoppage, most in brutal fashion. Only her use of performance-enhancing drugs has slowed Justino’s dominance of her division and the women’s sport in general, particularly since she finally joined the UFC last year.“I think Holly is a great fighter for me, because she’s a big name, too,” Justino said. “She has a lot of fights, a lot of experience. I think it would be a great fight.”ADVERTISEMENT While Justino would be the favorite in any bout, Holm is intriguing because of her highs and her lows.She stopped Rousey with that vicious head kick and earned instant fame beyond her sport, but then she followed up with three consecutive defeats, including a lackluster decision loss to Germaine de Randamie in February for the inaugural women’s UFC featherweight title.When de Randamie gave up the belt rather than fight Justino in her first defense, Justino claimed the strap with a win over Tonya Evinger in July. Holm ended her skid with a stoppage of Bethe Correia in June and then booked her second shot at the featherweight title.While Holm could make MMA history with a win over Justino to claim a belt in her second weight class, this fight also presents a chance for Justino to beat the most famous female fighter aside from Rousey, whose career appears to be over one year after her comeback loss to Amanda Nunes.Holm and Justino are both accomplished strikers with polished punching skills, so it won’t be a surprise if this bout is contested on the feet. Holm’s style appears to give her a chance against Justino, who hasn’t faced many strikers with Holm’s ability.And while Holm is the underdog, she is determined to enjoy her chance to become a two-belt champion.“It’s not just any fight card in Vegas,” Holm said. “It’s the last fight card of the year, and it’s a busy time in Vegas. I feel like there’s going to be a lot of energy, and my whole thought is just to take all that energy in and just live in it and be in the moment.” /cbb Holly Holm of the United States reacts after knocking out Bethe Correia of Brazil during their UFC women’s bantamweight event at the UFC Fight Night in Singapore on June 17, 2017. AFPHolly Holm has already shocked the sports world with one upset victory over a seemingly unbeatable mixed martial arts champion.She sees no reason she couldn’t do it again when she faces Cris “Cyborg” Justino in the main event of UFC 219 on Saturday night.ADVERTISEMENT Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:42Stars face off at ONE: Dawn of Heroes01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City LATEST STORIES 8th Top Leaders Forum assessed the progress of public-private efforts in building climate and disaster resilient communities Belo to the rescue Do not bring these items in SEA Games venues MOST READ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
