Rachel Dean: 'Dad died hours before my A-Levels and I feared I'd never get into Queen's... he'd be so proud I'm graduating next week' BelfastTelegraph.co.uk Three years ago, I would never have believed I would be accepted by any university, never mind graduating with a 2:1 from Queen's University Belfast. Instead, I was engulfed by grief and turmoil, reeling from the sudden death of the dad I adored and confronted with the very real possibility that although I had been on course to get the grades for the university course I wanted, I might not now get accepted for my course because I'd missed two exams that fell hours after dad had died. https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/northern-ireland/rachel-dean-dad-died-hours-before-my-alevels-and-i-feared-id-never-get-into-queens-hed-be-so-proud-im-graduating-next-week-37053023.html https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/life/features/article37053018.ece/79836/AUTOCROP/h342/2018-06-27_lif_42054877_I2.JPG Email Three years ago, I would … [Read more...] about Rachel Dean: ‘Dad died hours before my A-Levels and I feared I’d never get into Queen’s… he’d be so proud I’m graduating next week’

If this sounds odd, then allow me to explain.May is the official Stroke awareness month, and then on May 17 we have one day officially nominated as Hypertension Day, with free blood pressure testing in pharmacies.It's a good time to reflect on whether we should be thinking of insuring our health, and the financial wellbeing of our family, against the arrival of some unexpected and severe medical setback.In other words, insurance in case we are struck by some severe ailment, but don't die. The answer, of course, is Critical Illness Insurance, or ‘CI'.CI covers you against the most common forms of severe health problems: heart attack, stroke, cancer, MS, or major surgery. There are many policies available, most cover much more than these core conditions.I like to think of CI as covering, not your health, but your income and wellbeing when your health fails.Figures from the National Statistics Office tell us that more than half of us … [Read more...] about Insurance in case you don’t die
POLITICS 04/10/2018 03:54 pm ET Bob Murray, who has heavily influenced the Trump administration's energy stances, said climate change is only an issue of "political correctness." By Alexander C. Kaufman Bob Murray, the chief executive of coal giant Murray Energy Corporation, issued a grave warning to the nation’s leading renewable energy conference on Tuesday.

In an impassioned 15-minute speech at the annual Bloomberg New Energy Finance summit, Murray repeatedly dismissed the threat of climate change and instead cautioned that the electrical grid risked collapse without reliable energy from coal-fired plants.
