At least one medical practice in West London has reintroduced social distancing to reduce the risk of patients contracting Monkeypox. This, in spite of the fact that there are only nine cases so far in the U.K.

Simon Kuper's book about how a small group of 'Tory Toffs' who were at Oxford in the 1980s masterminded the Brexit project to reclaim their aristocratic birthright is highly entertaining, but not convincing.

You might think that if you debunk patently silly extreme weather claims, the entire fear agenda will go away. Think again. Climate change is now firmly embedded in the culture wars surrounding race, identity and gender.

Why didn't the US back Zelensky? The New York Times wrote earlier this year that his government could be overthrown by far-right groups if he ?agrees to a peace deal that in their minds gives too much to Moscow?.

'Trinity College Centre to Host UNESCO Round Table on Hill of Tara / M3 motorway'

The Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, at Trinity College Dublin, will host a prestigeous UNESCO workshop, concerning the Hill of Tara and the M3 motorway.

The round table type workshop was proposed by Mr Francesco Bandarin, Director of the World Heritage Centre of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), during the recent World Heritage Committee meeting in Quebec.

The proposal was made in response to a request by TaraWatch that UNESCO address the proposal by the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, John Gormley, to make Tara a World Heritage Site.

The workshop format will involve a series of presentations from various local, national and international bodies, over a number of days. Invited bodies include:

- The Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government
- The Department of Transport
- The National Roads Authority
- The National Museum
- The Heritage Council
- The International Council on Monunments and Sites
- World Monuments Fund
- Sacred Sites International
- Archaeological Institute of America
- World Archaeological Congress
- Meath Archaeological and Historical Society

The impact on the integrity of Tara cultural landscape by the proposed M3 motorway will form a part of the workshop. The date and time will be announced shortly.

The Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies was formally founded in the spring of 1999 with two major aims: to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration between scholars working in the early fields both within and outside Trinity; to promote Medieval and Renaissance studies at a national and an international level.

Dr Sarah Alyn Stacey of the TCD Centre said:

"We have campaigned vigorously for the presevation of Tara for the past number of years, and are delighted that UNESCO will finally address this issue.

"This will be the first such worshop to take place in Ireland, and we hope that all of the stakeholders, including the Minister for the Environment, will participate.

Vincent Salafia of TaraWatch said:

"We are putting all of our hopes in the hands of UNESCO now.

"The M3 is still two years away from completion, and we still hope that a compromise can be reached, which will preserve the complex, and deliver the road.
