  • Sister of Derry girl who died from cervical cancer says any female over 18 who wants a smear test should have one » Inside Ireland
    given the news that she had cervical cancer Orlagh said that over the coming months the lymph nodes continued to swell with cancer pressing on the nerves on her lower back and leaving her immobile and weakening her body Sorcha continued to fight right until the very end but passed away peacefully holding her beloved boyfriend Matt s hand on 24th October 2014 She was so inspirational brave and positive throughout her treatment and illness and continued the whole time to raise awareness of cervical screening in young people and hoped to enable those who request a smear test to be given one without age discrimination and to reduce the age of screening from 25 years old to 18 years old Following her death Derry City Council wrote to the Health Minister calling for the age limit to be lowered Screening In Britain the UK NSC Review undertook a review of the age at which cervical screening starts by the Advisory Committee on Cervical Screening ACCS in May 2009 following the raising of the screening age from 20 to 25 in 2004 This review looked at all the latest available evidence on the risks and benefits of cervical screening in women aged 20 to 24 The Committee was unanimous in deciding there was no reason to lower the age from 25 which is in line with the World Health Organization WHO recommendation One of the reasons for the decision was that the research presented to the review showed that cervical screening in women aged 20 to 24 has little or no impact on rates of invasive cervical cancer up to age 30 In Northern Ireland the HPV vaccination programme is funded by the Department of Health Social Services and Public Safety and implemented by the Public Health Agency and the Health and Social Care Trusts In a statement to the Derry Journal a spokesperson for the Department said the age the screening starts was informed by the best available scientific evidence Any screening programme can do harm as well as good The benefit of screening woman aged 20 24 does not outweigh its harms This is why it is recommended not to screen women under 25 Department of Health Social Services and Public Safety However Orlagh believes the screening should have been offered to her sister and is so would have been able to detect the cancer sooner Now a petition has been set up by Team Sorcha the Facebook page leading the campaign of have the age for screening lowered over 22 000 people have signed already Orlagh said We hope to continue with this legacy Help us by signing and sharing the petition Orlagh said that during the last four weeks since Sorcha s death Team Sorcha have continued Sorcha s legacy and achieved so much This includes over 22 000 signatures on the petition over 16 500 likes on the page some excellent press coverage Cervical Cancer awareness raising and the skydive Lauren completed raising over 3000

  • Features: Interview with a Psychologist » Inside Ireland
    are talking about less than 20 years ago What would be most common problems in Ireland today Anxiety disorder panic attacks Speaking about the rarity in my office the biggest chunk of problems we deal with in a session are love relationships marital mentoring difficult date splitting The second most common problem is the purpose in life It s quite common that people which are getting close to theirs 30 s question themselves as what are their goals and purpose in life By means of therapy we can achieve that through self knowledge What causes Anxiety disorder Anxiety disorder can be caused by many different factors the most common anxiety disorder nowadays is caused by stress in our lives but every single case must be explored to understand the real factors that are causing the crisis It could be caused by lack of one or other chemical in our brain by substance abuse in some cases genetics or even all of these factors combined The crises normally starts when we start to think about something bad this is a long way down and one bad thing pulls another which pulls yet another and when you realize that it is too late to control yourself you are already experiencing the elevation of your heart beat hands sweating and desperation During the crisis physical exercises and talking to someone completely different things can be very helpful Alongside this if you are under therapy your therapist would investigate which kinds of thoughts are triggering such behaviour on you facilitating your power and control over it What causes panic attacks Panic attacks are closely related to Anxiety disorder potentially every single of us have potential to suffer one but if the individual does not have Anxiety disorder it is very unlikely to suffer one attack The panic attack is a normal answer from our body to a dangerous situation which will release adrenaline in our bodies causing our heart to accelerate speeding the blood circulation and letting us in a situation of emergency to escape or fight When we have this chemical reaction in our body but no obvious reason to be afraid the experience can be extremely uncomfortable These attacks normally are not longer than 30 minutes but again it can vary from individual to individual The question that should remain after one attack is WHY The explanation for the why can bring the person to their self control Do you see any correlation to the fact that more people are concentrated on money working in offices and at the same time more people have problems with their nerves I would say the concentration on money is the problem we have plenty of people working hard for long hours in offices because they don t have a choice they must nurture their families or themselves The job related problems are definitely related to the pace of jobs nowadays and all the changes and targets that companies impose to their employees are stressful and

    50 kilometres away That s a lot of riding at high altitude across challenging terrain galloping across plains pockmarked with aardvark holes and rocks and cantering through stone bed rivers with vertigo inducing banks Along the way animal burrows are a constant hazard But if you re lucky enough for the person in front of you to spot one through the dust clouds avoid it and shout HOLE in time you might not fall down it Organisers encourage guests to take out medical insurance prior to arrival but they also have their own public liability insurance and membership to the Flying Doctors organisation in case of serious injury requiring evacuation Nevertheless there s a lot that can go wrong in the middle of nowhere The riding sections will undoubtedly push you to your limits of self preservation whether you opt to take the easy option and stay back or throw caution to the wind and try to keep up with the lead guide Bullwhips protect guests from animal attacks with guides normally carrying little else The Land Rover variant of the trip for non riders encourages guests to get out and walk on the reserve and here they are accompanied by a guard carrying a rifle Armed The one occasion we went out armed was to a mountain we climbed first by car then by foot to reach its spectacular peak Its nooks host several families of cheetah and leopard which we were warned to be on our guard against although we didn t see any as we clambered about on its slopes We did not have to wait much longer before we did though On our first night at the third campsite while drinking beers around the fire on the banks of the Mara River our lead Masai guard Nati came over saying he d spotted a cheetah and asking if we wanted to see it Several seconds later we were careering around the site in the Land Rover shining a spotlight until suddenly we caught a flash of markings bolting into a bush Nati picked out an impala with the light leading the cheetah out into the open to its quarry The kill was artistic and eloquent in its execution and despite the graphic scene we drove over clutching our beers on the roof of the car and sat transfixed to watch it feed Masai warriors love to put on a show for the lady guests Other night time highlights included Masai warriors demonstrating their mating dance around the fire a hit with the ladies driving out to party on the plains after dark with James Brown booming from the stereo and running semi clothed out of my tent at 4am as an elephant pushed down a nearby tree The camp s 15 strong domestic staff of men from various local tribes went above and beyond to give the safari an extravagant feel Returning to my tent after dinner each evening I would without fail find my riding

  • Don’t be afraid to embrace subtitled films- they’ve given me some wonderful moments » Inside Ireland
    entertain going to a movie that was largely silent The Artist was one of the most talked about films early in the year and is certainly an exciting and innovative venture I remember when I was at college many of my friends would not go to see Schindler s List one of the great films of our time because it was in black and white Many so called film fans have never seen a non English language movie because of subtitles We seem to put up barriers to restrict our wider enjoyment of films because they are either not in colour they don t have sound or they are not in English In that mind that are a lot of terrific films that we are not going to see If I had those restrictions I would never have seen Chaplin s The Kid or Laurel and Hardy s Big Business nor classics such as La Grande Illusion or Les Enfants du Paradis both French and black and white quelle horreur How robbed I would be of fun and adventure My own personal journey into world cinema World Cinema has provoked all sorts of emotions in me over the years I remember laughing heartily when Dany Boon and Kad Merad as postmen Antoine and Philippe cycle through the streets of Lille exploding in drunken mirth as boss Philippe realises it was impossible to refuse the customers offer of drink after previously admonishing Antoine in Bienvenue chez les Ch tis I recall the despair I felt watching La Rafle as Jews were being rounded up in Paris on July 16 and 17th 1942 and held in the now infamous Vel d hiv the Winter Velodrome I remember the tears streaming down my face in Cinema Paradiso as Salvatore returns and reminisces how big a part Alfredo played in his life and how development has actually bulldozed away a lot of where those moments took place yet time has not erased his memories both good and bad I cannot imagine restricting myself to just English language only films and preventing me from experiencing those emotions If we were to continue restricting ourselves think of the great directors and their works we would never get to see films by among others De Sica Rossellini and Fellini for Italy Carne Pagnol Godard Truffaut Malle Tavernier for France Herzog Fassbinder Wenders Bergman Kurosawa Ray Tarkovsky and Eisenstein for Germany Sweden Japan India and Russia respectively For film fans these directors will bring techniques that we may not have seen in mainstream Hollywood flicks such as fragmented narratives jump cuts hand held cameras the use of shadows camera positions and tracking In terms of acting for these fans we have some of the great character actors in cinema to discover If we just take France alone consider watching the gritty Jean Gabin in Le Jour Se Leve the excellent Michel Simon in Drole de Drame the irascible performance of Raimu in Marius and in one his final

    become clear later on If you haven t seen it I seriously suggest you watch it A link can be found here It began being introduced with the classic BBC Globe Ident Already we re off to a winner I love it when the BBC does retro idents around themed events Like when BBC 2 did 1970s Idents when introducing a season of programmes dedicated to the 1970s fronted by Dominic Sandbrook From there a comic turn as continuity duties were handed to Julian Simmons struggling to grasp that he was on the BBC He has previously been on the BBC playing himself in Give My Head Peace and not being able to say Simulcast a brilliant tribute to gag at the expense of Ivan Phenomenon Little On a night dedicated to celebrating TV in Northern Ireland it would have been criminal not to have Julian Simmons involved although it was a man who has overtaken him as Northern Ireland s most famous Continuity Announcer Peter Dickson who introduced Eamonn Holmes in the studio Holmes was one of many stars we got to see in a younger day as we were treated to a wide range of clips in terms of subject matter era and tone Having looked back and laughed at some of life s more light hearted moments as well as looking back at news reports from the troubles as well as Chris Moore talking about his exposé of child abuse in the Catholic church If you wish to see a young Eamonn Holmes as a sports reporter for UTV He looks like Dimitar Berbatov check out this excellent clip of ITV s 1982 World Cup coverage where he interviews Sammy Mackie Another well known face who began his career as a sports reporter for the BBC was also in the audience The five minute time difference in the schedule was explained as BBC went off air just after 23 30 and that UTV would go off air just before 23 35 The BBC ending was fantastic Superbly scripted and filmed Once the end credits finished a quick announcement explaining the situation was read out before cutting to the 70s Ident before fading out to reveal a series of TVs showing past BBC Idents and even the Ceefax home page Credit to Continuity Announcer Mark Simpson for an excellent read out That was it Analogue BBC and Ceefax was no more UTV s ending was rather disappointing in comparision to BBC very matter of fact moving on to the next programme It would have been brilliant if they could have used an ident or idents incorporating this logo in their final analogue moments So to end here s five well six really classic Northern Ireland Youtube Clips that probably should have been mentioned on The Magic Box HONOURABLE MENTION JIM CRAZY PRICES MEGAW 5 JULIAN SIMMONS Not an exact moment but a Julian Simmons Best Of would have been brilliant 4 NORTHERN IRELAND DISCO DANCING CHAMPIONSHIP 1981 3
