CORK Chamber saw its pre-tax profits fall 33% to €65,329 last year but it said Ireland’s second city is showing strong resilience economically.

Turnover at the Chamber rose from €1.3 million to €1.4m, according to its latest annual report.

Bord Gáis chief executive John Mullins is expected to be elected president of the chamber at its AGM next month and once in office he will appoint a vice president.

In the annual report, Cork Chamber president Ger O’Mahoney said 2010 was not an easy year but he said the chamber has emerged at the end of it still standing and that is testament to the quality and innovation that is present in the business community in Cork.

“It is this quality and innovation that will ensure the Cork region goes from strength to strength as a business hub,” he said.

Alden Richards is Definitely Not Thor in His Next TV Series
By Esquire Philippines | 5 days ago

Alden, my man, you almosthad uswith that last project of yours, Alaala: A Martial Law Special . We thought, hey, here's a guy who has a huge platform—he is, after all, the "pambansang bae," as it were—and he's actually using it to tellan important story. Wethink it's awesome that youstuck your neck out andriskedyour glistening celebrity status in the name of making a stand for truth, which is a very, very cool thing to do.

But just as we've commendedyou for that, man, we've got to to keep it real: So far, this new thing you're working on isn't looking so fresh.

See, a movie came out earlier this year—it's a little on the indie side, so we wouldn't blame you if you didn't get to catch it. It's called Avengers: Infinity War . We won'tspoil the plot for you, since you still might want tosee it in a microcinema or something. But one of the characters in that movie is named Thor, and he looks just like your new character, Victor Magtanggol. Check it:


Thor wields a similar weapon, wears similar armor, andhas even lived ina similar palace. Before Infinity War ,Thorwas in at least five other movies since 2011; and before that, he was a comic book character, who first appeared in 1962's Journey into Mystery #83 . So yeah, he's been around for a while now, certainlypredating Victor Magtanggol . But don't take our word for it:

People of the Philippines, Let us welcome our new superhero: Victor Magtanggol, “inspired” by the Norse Mythology (aka Thor ripoff)


jusko po gma, obvious na eh dapat thor na lang ginawa nyong pangalan ng teleserye hindi na victor magtanggol

Also—and we hate to break it to you; we're sure you had no hand in this—the showrunners' creative decisions regarding your theme song have been, as the kidssay, "Lame AF." In case you missed it, Ex Battalion isn't just a band of sweaty pretenders. Angara ClawSet Natural Tanzanite and Diamond Halo Stud Earrings in Platinum YNP5gonYM
, who have contributed, albeit very indirectly, to a system that favors thevery same powersthat your other character, Bonifacio Ilagan, Angara Natural Sapphire Diamond Pendant in Yellow Gold VR4750UCf2
in real life. Okay, fine, that's a bit of a reach, but our point is that you can lend your voice to much better than Ex Battalion.

Here are two examples of people who took everyday problems and turned them around through laughter and play:

Roy , a semi-retired businessman, was excited to finally have time to devote to golf, his favorite sport. But the more he played, the less he enjoyed himself. Although his game had improved dramatically, he got angry with himself over every mistake. Roy wisely realized that his golfing buddies affected his attitude, so he stopped playing with people who took the game too seriously. When he played with friends who focused more on having fun than on their scores, he was less critical of himself. Now golfing was as enjoyable as Roy hoped it would be. He scored better without working harder. And the brighter outlook he was getting from his companions and the game spread to other parts of his life.

Jane worked at home designing greeting cards, a job she used to love but now felt had become routine. Two little girls who loved to draw and paint lived next door. Eventually, Jane invited the girls in to play with all the art supplies she had. At first, she just watched, but in time she joined in. Laughing, coloring, and playing pretend with the little girls transformed Jane’s life. Not only did playing with them end her loneliness and boredom, it sparked her imagination and helped her artwork flourish. Best of all, it rekindled the playfulness and spark in Jane’s relationship with her husband.

As laughter, humor, and play become an integrated part of your life, your creativity will flourish and new opportunities for laughing with friends, coworkers, acquaintances, and loved ones will occur to you daily. Laughter takes you to a higher place where you can view the world from a more relaxed, positive, and joyful perspective.
