Terry Prone – Examiner, November 7th

Why Hillary needs to lift the hearts of the audience, music hall-style. The odds are on an unsatisfactory win by Hillary Clinton, which will present her with a task of healing and inspiring a deeply polarised nation. This starts with John Major and the pussies. A first for the Irish Examiner, we modestly point out. Now, the younger, newer readers may not be desperately familiar with John Major, so let us introduce him [...]

THEY died in terror and pain. They died in public shame, their screams drowned out by a mob of neighbours, relatives and those they had, up to the previous week, called friends. They suffered as they died, and they died certain of further suffering in hell. We do not terrify today’s little girls with the truthful “Once upon a time.” As in, “Once upon a time the men of Ireland, Britain [...]

THE landline in the house rang the other day and I nearly had to go to A&E to get over it. The first thing was that I had no idea what it was, it’s so long since that phone said anything to anybody. The second problem was that it was like an assault. I had forgotten how raucously exigent is a telephone with a full frontal old-fashioned ringing noise. I [...]

No medical cure yet for ‘Doctor Google’ and the know-it-all patient. Patients who have self-diagnosed on Google are a major bugbear of GPs and hospital doctors. THE title of the workshop was ‘The Difficult Patient.’ Every doctor, be they a GP or consultant, has examples. But the irritating habits change over time. Link -

How Trump or Clinton can win tonight: Force their rival to make a mistake they can't recover from. IN AUGUST 2011, Texas governor Rick Perry entered the Republican primaries in the race to be the party’s nominee for president. He was riding high, leading the field, polling at 29% – a full 11 points ahead of eventual nominee Mitt Romney. Then came a moment not even the best political commentators [...]

The subtext of Donald Trump’s reckless tweets is that he lacks judgement. I ONCE had a client who did midnight texts. They were urgent, those texts. They were important. They predicted problems. It was oddly flattering to be the recipient of this man’s last, worried thoughts, before he hit the scratcher. At dawn, I would respond to them, and because he never came back to me about them, I figured [...]

Telling it like it is has nothing to do with the truth in Donald Trump’s world. FOR more than a year, Donald Trump has been a “birther”, promulgating the theory that Barack Obama was not born in the United States of America and, accordingly, is not and should never have been president of the US. But, last week, he saw the light and announced that he accepts Barack Obama was [...]

Don’t sully your good name by creating a battle you cannot win... YOU remember the photographs. If you saw them, you could never forget them. Most of them were head-on, cockpit-first shots, showing an enormous plane sitting in the river Hudson, its two great wings covered in passengers... Link -

Futility of celebrities penning letters to their mythical teenage selves. THERE’S a special place in hell reserved for two kinds of people. The first are the inventors of the flat roof, which has caused more grief to humanity than any other aspect of construction. The second is for whoever invented the device of getting famous people to write letters to their younger selves. Like the flat roof, on the face [...]

The consultancy firm that has the ear of Ireland's top politicians and sports stars. As part of our weekly How My Business Works series, we profile the Communications Clinic. By Killian Woods, Reporter - - “GO ENJOY YOURSELF. If you work hard and you’re nice to people, things will work out.” That’s the simple advice Eoghan McDermott gave to his daughter on her first day of school this week. Day [...]

“The Martello towers of Britain and Ireland,” I began, “were arguably the most costly mistake ever made by the British government. Seventy eight of them were built around the south and east coasts of Britain and Ireland, all within a five-year period, to defend against the possibility of maritime invasion by Napoleon. In the event, Napoleon never came, because he was a bit preoccupied in Russia. This particular tower was [...]

The hair-raising truth about those who put fame above achievement. Here’s a quiz question. No prize, but have a go anyway. What do Donald Trump and Ryan Lochte have in common? Odd hair, I hear you say? Accurate, but not the right answer. The right answer is a twofer: 1) They’re both promiscuously addicted to fame, rather than achievement, and 2) Neither knows how to apologise... Link -

  How to pick the right PostGrad course for YOU.   BACK IN MARCH, a 91-year-old French woman became one of the oldest people to obtain a PhD proving that it’s never too late to pursue an additional qualification. I assume the ideal for everyone is that you’re in a job that you enjoy. We all would love to work in something we love. I hope many of us eventually get there. An additional qualification [...]
