I’ll have 1,500 calories with that burger, please.

One burger meal can contain up to a day’s worth of calories, writes AINE McMAHON 

A NEW REPORT reveals that the average burger meal contains almost the recommended daily amount of calories, salt and fat for adults.  Safefood yesterday published research that found a burger with toppings, a large portion of fries and a large soft drink in a typical burger meal contained almost all of the recommended daily allowance of calories for adults.

The study, What’s in That Bun?, examined 240 burgers in three categories (kids, regular and quarter pounder) from 47 takeaways in Ireland…

The figures released today by Social Justice Ireland are calculated from the latest CSO data and relate to 2010.

There was a drop of more than 18% in the disposable income bracket (after taxes are paid and social welfare received) for the poorest households during the year. ..

Outrage over TV footage of sexual assault on woman.

 INDIANS HAVE reacted with anger and disgust over video footage of a young woman being sexually assaulted by a laughing mob of more than a dozen men in a busy street outside a bar in northeast India.

Not only did no one intervene for up to 45 minutes during the attack, but an off-duty TV journalist filmed the incident on his phone and called a cameraman to join him. The footage was then broadcast on news channels, prompting a debate on women’s safety in India and whether journalists have a duty to help in such situations…

Charity’s board ‘did not vote to oust O’Shea in bully row’ via @independent_ie.

CHARITY boss John O’Shea may have misunderstood the purpose of a GOAL board meeting which led him to take legal action against the directors, it emerged yesterday.

On Tuesday Mr O’Shea secured an injunction temporarily stopping the board from taking any action regarding his employment with the charity he established 35 years ago.

The High Court was told that the 68-year-old CEO believed there was a “concerted effort” to remove him from his position.

But it is understood that, rather than trying to oust Mr O’Shea, the plan was for him to take a paid break to allow allegations of bullying against him to be investigated…
