Green Party leader Eamon Ryan said on Sunday he would bring a package of measures to Government next week to help with the cost of living.

Sources indicated this would include a public awareness campaign advising steps such as cutting out one car journey a week in favour of walking or taking public transport, taking shorter showers, not filling a kettle to the top if not needed and turning down the thermostat by a degree.

The package will also include more targeted measures, which sources described as “regulator-led”, designed to help those with energy debts obtain manageable repayment schedules and to ensure vulnerable people were on the cheapest tariff possible.

Irish Times’ depiction of how ‘one shop worker’ in the Midlands managed to  ‘infect’ a further 54 people

This morning.

It’s a web.


Via The Irish Times:

The web of contagion from the initial “index case” in the shop, recorded in April and May, spread to 12 families, 15 households, a food takeaway, a secondary school and a creche. Nine people were directly infected by a shop worker attending the extended family gathering.

One person who attended the party infected five co-workers in a food takeaway from where the virus spread to four other households and the creche, where four people were infected.

Three infected people in the creche spread the virus to six other people in their families.

…The transmission across the 55 cases involved the virus spreading through “seven generations” as it passed from person to person.

Mmm. Sciencey.

Seems legit.
