World Alpaca Conference held at Keble

first_imgAlpacas and their enthusiasts descended upon Keble College last week for the World Alpaca Conference.Over 180 delegates from 18 different countries attended the conference which celebrates the versatility of the alpaca, an animal closely related to the llama, and the multiple uses of its famously soft fleece. It was the first time the event had ever been held in the UK.Alpaca owners came in their herds to the conference, which included events such as talks on Alpaca health, fleece testing and workshops about breeding alpacas and processing their fleece.The alpacas, meanwhile, grazed on the grass outside, much to the amusement of Keble’s students, who are prevented from walking on the lawns in Michaelmas and Hilary. Domestic Bursar, Janet Betts, conceded that “it would have been difficult to fine the animals anyway”.Later, the delegates moved inside for a fashion show in which alpaca fleece garments, including ponchos, scarves and dresses were modelled. The fleeces of the alpacas brought to the conference were also judged. “Pinkney Angelica” was labelled the winner, having already secured first place for her “Champion Fleece” in last year’s Heart of England Fleece Show.The conference, organised by the British Alpaca Society, aims to promote the use of alpaca fleece in Britain. All profits are set to go to Amanti, a charity for Peruvian children, which thanked the BAS “for their generous support”.One delegate commented that she’d like alpaca “to become part of everyone’s vocabulary”. Another delegate, Chris Goffrey, said that the conference was really “a big deal” as it was bound to put “the UK alpaca community on the map.”Kishan Koran, a first year PPEist, commented that there was “something beautiful and majestic about the idea of alpacas in Oxford”. However another student questioned whether “having an Alpaca conference in 2012 is a smart idea,” as it is a year widely regarded to be “the year of the Mayan Alpaca-lypse.”last_img read more

Doctor: Your heart is actually capable of breaking

first_img Facebook Pinterest (“stethoscope” by PROjasleen_kaur, CC BY-SA 2.0) Valentine’s Day is coming up, so be warned: your heart is actually capable of breaking.Stress-induced cardiomyopathy, or Broken Heart Syndrome, is a “stress hormone response that causes reduced heart function and heart failure”, says IU Health cardiologist Dr. Kyle Frick.According to Dr. Frick, Broken Heart Syndrome is typically brought on by intense emotional or physical stressors.“Any intense emotional or physical stressor, so the loss of a loved one, even something like winning the lottery, those things can produce a surge in adrenaline which can cause Broken Heart Syndrome,” Dr. Frick said. “Also things we see in the hospital, like a big surgery, or being sick.”Typically, about 1 to 2 percent of people who come to the Emergency Room with heart attack symptoms will have Broken Heart Syndrome, says Dr. Frick. However, the stress of the pandemic has brought that number up to 7 to 8 percent.He says the existence of Broken Heart Syndrome truly shows that our mental and emotional health is often connected to our physical health — so we should be taking good care of both.“Just trying to overall manage your emotional and physical well-being,” Dr. Frick said. “That means not only diet, exercise, but taking care of your emotional health as well. Doing things that make you happy and keeping you in the right frame of mind.”Overall, Dr. Frick says Broken Heart Syndrome is rare — but if you have symptoms that are new and worrisome, like chest pain or shortness of breath, you should talk to your doctor.

DIVILMENT AND A CÚPLA FOCAL LE TOMMY TIERNAN IN DONEGAL

first_imgBe prepared for a bit of divilment as stand-up genius Tommy Tiernan sets out on his second World Tour of Donegal this week.Speaking to donegaldaily.com, the award-winning comic legend described it as a “privilege” to travel the county with his new show “Poot”.He said: “It’s a profound county. It has healing in those mountains. I was here on tour two years ago and I thought that people have enough of a break from you so that you can come back and people trust you for a bit of devilment. “They are marvellous people and it is a privilege to make it happen again.”As part of the tour, Tommy makes a return trip to Dunlewey in the heart of the Gaeltacht which holds a special place for him as his daughter has recently started a Gaelscoil .“We’d ask her every day, ‘so what Irish did you learn’ and she was a bit upset because she said she was the only one who wasn’t called ‘anseo’.“And it’s lovely. She’s saying oh tá sé gaofar. And this day she learned how to bless herself and it was ‘in ainm an athair agus an leithris agus an …….” So does he have any plans to learn Irish?“I have Gaeilge briste. I was brought up with Leinster Irish and now I have broken Connemara Irish. But it’s lovely to hear all the little things she says. And we’re here living in Barna and you know that the people and the Irish here it’s the real thing,” he said.His eight date tour around the county includes Ballybofey, Bundoran, Buncrana, Donegal Town, Dunlewey, Glenties and Letterkenny.Born in Carndonagh, his family left when he was three and relocated to Africa before returning to Ireland .He told how he grew up watching sit-coms on BBC and UTV including The Two Ronnies, Mind your Language and Dad’s Army. “But I wasn’t allowed to watch Not The Nine O’Clock News. I suppose the grá for stand-up came after watching Billy Connolly. But stand-up in general,well, there’s an awful lot of dross and it’s painful,” he said.The sometimes controversial comedian admitted that he had spent a while “saying and thinking the unsayable”.“I don’t think I was controversial. I don’t think that’s part of the experience for people. I think controversy is created by what people read about me in the newspapers. What you read in 2008/9, the shows are a bit hard-edged. I’m in softer mood with a bit of divilment and wildness.”His ‘Crooked Man’ DVD was recently awarded the best comedy dvd of the year and is flying off the shelves. Tommy’s eight-day tour of Donegal kicks off  this Wednesday, November 30 at the Balor Theatre in Ballybofey.
