first_imgWhatsApp Guest speakers and panelists pictured with organiser Dr Mary Ryan, Consultant Endocrinologist Bon Secours Hospital (4th from left front) at the Midwest Empowerment and Equality Conference 2019 in the University Concert Hall. Picture: Zoe Conway/ilovelimerickThe Midwest Empowerment and Equality Conference took place at University Concert Hall this month to empower, educate and encourage men and women both young and old to take better care of themselves.Key speaker at the event on Wednesday, May 1, Professor Desmond Fitzgerald, President of the University of Limerick spoke about the progress of female empowerment and gender equality in Limerick saying, “In the University here it is a very important part of our strategy to ensure that we achieve gender equality and we‘ve done a lot in those terms, we are third in Europe amongst Universities for gender equality but we have a long way to go.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Mary Harney, Chancellor of UL officially opened the conference giving an inspirational speech about the improvement of equality and empowerment within parliament saying, “Women have come a long way in Ireland, in Leinster House in 1977 when I was nominated for the Senate, virtually all of the women there were there by virtue of their connection to a former male politician, they were either daughters, widows or in one case a granddaughter of male politicians and the wonderful change that has happened in the intermediate years are that the women that are there now are there in their own right, and I think that is fantastic, even if we are only 22 per cent of the parliamentarians in Leinster House today.”The conference was organised and presented by Dr Mary Ryan, Consultant Endocrinologist, Bon Secours at Barrington’s Limerick and Senior Lecturer at Graduate Entry Medical School (GEMS), University of Limerick.Dr Ryan educated the audience on the importance of hormones and how it interacts with lifestyle and why empowerment is so important in both men and women. Mary spoke about many issues regarding empowerment.She gave the audience tips on how to empower themselves, quoting Warren Buffett, “surround yourself with positive people, find mentors you can emulate and reach out to those who know more in order to be successful.”Vice-President of the European Parliament Mairead McGuinness MEP was one of the guest speakers of the day. Mairead spoke about where we are all going astray and losing the narrative regarding empowerment.She said, “Children are more open, more willing to challenge you, to ask you questions and give you advice. I often wonder, why is it we lose that connectivity and sense of the world when we are children as we grow into adulthood.“It is because the sense of empowerment isn’t deep enough in us, I think doctors would be out of business and that we would have healthcare it would be about health and wellbeing, keeping people well not treating people who are sick.”There were two discussion panels on the day featuring guests from the fields of business, sports, entertainment, health, and academia. The first panel included children’s author Fiona Dillon, Professor Linda Coates, Margaret O’Connor, MD Quigleys, actress and founder of BEO Aoibhin Garrihy, style queen Celia Holman Lee, Tony O’Riordan, CEO of Midlands Simon Community, hockey player Sinead Loughran, and nutritionist Olivia Beck.

Victoria Cottrell student from Ursuline Convent Thurles gave an amazing speech, touching on how she was affected by bullying. Victoria said “it was not until I decided that their horrific behaviour was their problem, not mine, that I could be free, I took back the power. Empowerment is feeling good about yourself, empowerment is taking control of your mental health, empowerment is not being afraid to stand out, empowerment is being able to say no in everything we do, empowerment is key!”The second panel included Minister Patrick O’Donovan, fitness expert Leanne Moore, Winifred Ryan, Head of Communications in the HSE, Ann Marie Gill, Chairperson of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre, PhD student Eoin White, and Motivational Speaker Sean Dwan, Sean Hoolan of the HSE Health Business Services, Fiona Brennan, transformation and mindset coach and Maryanne Lowney, a post-primary teacher in Colaiste Geann Lí, Tralee.

The Children’s Grief Centre is a free and voluntary organisation that supports children between the ages of 4 and 18, where parents have separated, divorced or where there has been bereavement.Mary Harney concluded her inspirational speech by thanking Dr Mary Ryan saying, “She is an example of a woman that is certainly empowered that certainly strives for equality, that certainly knows how to deal with crises and adversity and I think she is a very efficient person to be organising this event today.” Twitter Linkedin Email NewsCommunityEducationMEEC Conference 2019 stresses the importance of Gender Equality and Women’s Economic EmpowermentBy Staff Reporter – May 13, 2019 300 center_img Facebook Advertisement Print Previous articleTrina recovering after dog takes chunk out of her on election trailNext articleNiall Horan and Jamie Dornan joining growing list of 2020 JP McManus Pro-Am celebrities Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img read more

Case marks victory for NHS staff

first_imgThe recent case of an NHS trust and the NHS Supplies Authority being listedas co-defendants in a case of latex allergy (OH, January News p4), has raisedquestions regarding the duty of care owed by suppliers of medical devices. As a major supplier of medical gloves to NHS trusts, it is somewhatsurprising that NHS Supplies has continued to offer powdered latex surgical andexamination gloves for purchase. This is especially important given that in June 1998 the Medical Devices Agencystated in its safety notice (SN9825) that NHS managers should ensure a policyis in place to address the purchase and use of medical gloves and provide ajustification for their continued use. It also reminded managers that buyers should take into account the level ofextractable latex protein content. Most powdered latex gloves do have a higherprotein content. Given that the protein-level advice was available from supplies departments– presumably obtained from the NHS Supply Authority – begs us to ask whatjustification the NHS Supplies Authority had for continued sale of theseproducts. There is a wealth of knowledge available regarding the hazards of the use ofpowdered latex gloves, and many trusts have taken action to withdraw their usein the NHS. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that when an NHS Trust isaccused of a breach of statutory duty, it should name the supplier as aco-defendant. We should also question why Trusts are still able to obtain supplies ofpowdered latex gloves given that most manufacturers have ceased production ofsuch products. The NHS Supplies Authority must know that it has a duty, under the Healthand Safety at Work Act, to supply articles and substances that are without riskto health and safety. I am sure the courts will pay particular attention to anyrelevant advice provided by the supplier in deciding whether it has complied toits duty of care. This landmark case will no doubt have wider implications for suppliers ofother healthcare products. This should ensure that in the future healthcareemployees no longer have to make do with cheap, substandard medical devices,and encourage other users to seek redress through the courts.

Sewage effects on food sources and diet of benthic foraminifera living in oxic sediment: a microcosm experiment

first_imgA microcosm experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of sewage-derived particulate organic matter (POM) on the food sources and diets of two species of intertidal benthic foraminifera, Ammonia beccarii and Haynesina germanica, using lipid biomarkers to determine trophic relationships. The lipid content of the sediment and associated micro-organisms was a guide to potential food sources while that of the foraminifera was a guide to what they had actually eaten. Six microcosm tanks were established, with constant salinity, temperature and oxygen content, and each with a thin layer of sediment containing living foraminifera. Three microcosms were used as controls and three were treatments to which the POM from secondary treated sewage was added. Each microcosm was treated as a single replicate (to avoid pseudoreplication). The experiment was run for 38 days. The results showed that the food sources (from the sediment) and the diet of the foraminifera did not significantly differ in the controls or the treatments, but quantities of fatty acids decreased in both the sediment system and the foraminifera over the duration of the experiment. It is concluded that sewage-POM (secondary treatment) does not have a direct effect on the food sources of the foraminifera or their diet. The foraminifera did not feed directly on the sewage-derived POM, nor did the addition of sewage stimulate growth of micro-organisms associated with the sediment system. However, recent field data collected by the authors provides evidence that season plays an important role in foraminiferal response to organic pollution (OP), and microcosm sediment might have been unknowingly collected at a time when foraminifera are now known not to respond to OP, i.e. in summer.last_img read more
