Is suicide the irrational act of a capricious and headstrong person? Ill considered? Is it caused by an outside agency - family, an unfaithful boyfriend, a bully boss, loss of a job, bankruptcy, depression, anger, illiberal education, calumny or any other of the ills that flesh is heir to? The psychiatric services seem to find the problem of suicide impregnable and, indeed, neuroleptic medication - anti-depressants in particular - seem to be implicated in a negative way in many a suicide. Alcoholic drink is often involved if not as a cause then at least as a catalyst for suicide. read full story / add a comment

European politics are no doubt scintilating for the average Irish citizen now Lisbon2 is behind us & our continuing place at the heart of Europe is assured. We expect the Dáil expense scandal which hints at as much outragous sociopathic graft & cheek as our rivals in the British parliament will keep us in the top rankings. We can read about Berlusconi unknowingly frolicking with prostitutes and cocaine traffickers and think it slightly pathetic that he imagined his pretty guests were up & gaggin for it. Now new scandal at the heart of Europe which alas, is in the process of being hijacked by the far right! Sarkozy's minister of Culture, Frédéric Mitterrand, who though son of the socialist president chose a rightwing career path, is at the heart of the EU. In the lead-up to a new set of agreements between France and Thailand to stem sex tourism, passages from the minister's 2005 biography describing the thrill of sex with young Thai boys are raising interest of both prurient and legitimate nature. read full story / add a comment

A few of us may be waking up with a headache this morning but nothing like the one
encountered yesterday by Google lawyers who thought that piracy by any other name
would be tolerated Vis the GBS (The Google Book Settlement).

It's a fine idea to digitise every single book ever published if that is what you claim
you were instigated for; but to get up the noses of the writers and libraries whose
commitment to truth, to their art and to their poverties in the process of digitising
7,000,000 books- of which 5,000,000 were in copyright its another tale altogether.

Indeed they have stated that even the appearance of a theoretical conflict of interest must be avoided at all costs, and transparency ensured through thorough external auditing. read full story / add a comment

Last night saw the launch of a new history of the Offical IRA and the Workers Party called ‘The Lost Revolution’ by Brian Hanley and Scott Miller. Over 250 people including many ex and current members of the Workers Party as well as members of just about every other left and republican group crammed into the hall for the launch. This is an audio recording of the introduction to the book given by Diarmaid Ferriter followed by each of the authors speaking about the book. read full story / add a comment
The Sunday Independent reports major (though secret) editorial interference in the Irish Times - 26 Jan 2003 [CLICK TO READ]

The Irish Times reports the death of former owner, Major McDowell, September 10, 2009:

Major Thomas Bleakley McDowell
Former Irish Times chairman dies, aged 86


Widely known as “The Major”, he kept clear of involvement in editorial content, insisting that that was the domain of the editor.
http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/ireland/2009/0910/1....html

The Irish Times changed during the Major era, from a newspaper reflecting the protected but significant interests of a distinct Protestant business class to one that reflected the moderninsing interests of Irish capitalism. It was not as smooth a transition as the Irish Times usually reports.

In 1969 Major McDowell was 'hot under the coller" about the Irish Times. So wrote Andrew Gilchrist, the British Ambassador in Dublin to Whitehall. He went on: read full story / add a comment
