There is a range of educational apps available on the market that might make the first few weeks easier for those beginning or returning to college this year. Sure you could spend all your time Snapchattin' and Netflixin' but these apps might make you feel less guilty about not looking at that reading list. Here are a few that will increase your productivity at college.
2008. The year I started college. I hadn’t a clue what I wanted to do back then, but figured, I’d give the Gaeilge a go and see how I got on. In truth, I was awful, I could talk for Ireland but could I apply it? No. I was one of those students, who was in college, the course didn’t suit, and I was up the creek without a paddle. I thought about quitting, but that seemed pointless because I still didn’t know what to do.
1. Magic! have been in the charts the last few weeks, with their hit “Rude”. While the lead singer may not have been number one on his girlfriends fathers list, I think he deserves the top spot on my list today. It’s a catchy song and, like it or not, you’ll be singing and probably dancing around to it for hours after hearing it.
Social media has gone from strength to strength over the past few years. The power of it, is greater than anything I have ever seen. Never underestimate the power of a good social media campaign, and the power that it has to do great damage or simply do greatness.
The past year has seen a number of social media campaigns and threads. Some have proved truly worthy, while others, dumb, immature and wreckless. Countless amounts of money have been raised for charity, and a few lives lost. This all happened through the power, of social media.
I’ve been working as a tour leader around Central America for nearly 9 months now. Below is the map of the usual 7-week tour I run. It’s about time I chronicle the travel stories I’ve accumulated.
Never again they scream. And I believe it for just a split second. This week they will shout once more; some at the top of their lungs, others quietly as though they can hardly believe they have to say it again.
Pro-choice groups around the country are gearing up for yet another march against the archaic lack of abortion legislation that puts women’s lives in danger over and over.
My Facebook feed is filled with pictures of posters half-made that cry out for change. I scroll through a stream of outrage and disbelief on Twitter.
So, I’ve gotten rather into whole ‘live tweeting business’ lately, which essentially means, I’ll tweet about something that’s on the television as it happens. I’m aware how that sounds; would I not just sit back and enjoy the programme? Thing is, I do, because I also get a kick out of how it can end up trending on Twitter, and the communication and interaction I can have with followers and anyone using the official ‘hashtag’. I do love a good hashtag, much to the annoyance of others at the times.
Gay Byrne’s anniversary plans, a blind man’s trek in the Amazon, a WWII pilot and stalking The Boss. Three months at a national newspaper will confirm everything you hoped and feared journalism-as-a-job will be like.
It’s hard… It’s competitive and it’s scary.
But it’s also the most fun you can have with your clothes on.
“As I bent over with a blonde’s hand slipping around the top of my thigh, I pondered how there are worse ways to burn calories on a sleepy Thursday evening’. Sounds more like the start of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ than a newspaper article. This was the introduction to an article written by Niamh Horan, a journalist for the Sunday Independent, as part of the media build up to the Irish Women’s Rugby World Cup Semi-Final against England that occurred on August 13th.
