A psychology professor has had a bright idea: take the key words that appear in your university's 'vision' statement, ask chatGPT to write a sentence with them in and see if it can do better. Not surprisingly, it can.

Fundraising gig for Campaign to Save Tara

category cork | arts and media | press release author Sunday April 01, 2007 00:47author by Muireann Ni Bhrolchain - Campaign to Save Tara Report this post to the editors

April 11th 2007 (Wednesday)

Fundraising gig in the Crane Lane Theatre, Cork
Where's me heritage?
Fundraising gig for the Campaign to Save Tara from the M3 motorway.
No M3 in Gabhra Valley
No M3 in Gabhra Valley

Here's the first in a series of fundraising events for the Campaign to Save Tara, others coming shortly.
Starring: Sinead Gowen, Johnny Lee Band, Aine Whelan and Sara Corkery, Snatch Comedy, The Herby Roll Band
Tickets €10/€8 conc. available from Plug'd Records, Crystal Connections or at the door.

Message from the organisers:
In March a series of ancient underground buildings from the early Christian era were dismantled to make way for the controversial M3 motorway. This is what American Reporter correspondent T.S. Kerrigan had to say. “What’s next, a shopping centre connecting the Lakes of Killarney? A strip mall in Dingle? Unprincipled people seem to be in charge of Ireland’s cultural future”.
Will romantic Ireland be “dead and gone,” as poet W.B. Yeats contended, when that location is straddled with a four-lane tolled road and a 50 acre interchange? Will this obvious playing to the shims of the Irish motorist result in yet another desecration of the values of the past?
Work has, unfortunately, already begun despite an outcry which has spread beyond the borders of the country. William Harding, Professor of Archaeology at Edinburgh University, has claimed that “it is an act of cultural vandalism as flagrant as ripping a knife through a Rembrandt painting” Government owned forests in Rath Lugh are being systematically decimated as part of the project.
I hope that you can make it to the gig, which promises to be a great night in a great venue. If you can, please forward it to your friends and colleagues, and/or print it out and put it in your staff room / kitchen/ local newsboard.
Just think: our inaction could lead to huge developments less than a mere kilometre from the sacred hill (the proposed floodlit interchange is being build around land that has an alcohol licence)
Thank you for reading this, hope to see you all there, le meas,
