Ireland performs well in many measures of well-being relative to most other countries in the Better Life Index. Ireland ranks above the average in housing, personal security, health status, education and skills, social connections, subjective well-being, work-life balance, and environmental quality, but below average in income and wealth, and civic engagement. Money, while it cannot buy happiness, is an important means to achieving higher living standards. In Ireland, the average household net-adjusted disposable income per capita is USD 22 969 a year, less than the OECD average of USD 29 016 a year. But there is a considerable gap between the richest and poorest – the top 20% of the population earn almost five times as much as the bottom 20%. In terms of employment, some 61% of people aged 15 to 64 in Ireland have a paid job, below the OECD employment average of 66%.

About 40m bottles were sold over the past 12 months, enough to make 1.12bn gin and tonics, or roughly 28 for every person of legal drinking age in the UK, according to the Wine and Spirit Trade Association.

Boozy brunches: Are unlimited alcohol deals fuelling dangerous drinking in Britain? An alcohol addiction specialist has criticised deals for brunches which offer unlimited alcohol, saying the popular new trend risks fuelling dangerous levels of drinking among working professionals.
Dr Omair Ahmed, consultant psychiatrist at Priory's Wellbeing Centre in Birmingham, said the introduction of the "bottomless brunch" - where Prosecco, Cava or other sparkling wines are often offered at cut price - could encourage binge drinking and drink-driving. "In our cities, we are being bombarded with messages about wine or are being invited to take part in events like a 'bottomless brunch', but there is no mention of the other, very real side of alcohol consumption for drinkers, especially younger ones," Ahmed said.

INTERNATIONAL RETAILING. Bees Abroad, Supporting Beekeeping Projects in Developing Countries. Bees Abroad have no particular stance on the countries that they work in, their concern is in working where extreme poverty can be alleviated.
Because their resources are very limited they try to focus their efforts where they will have most impact. Their speciality is working with new grass roots beekeeping organisations that need very hands on input into their projects. They work with the various groups in order to help them work out how to solve their own problems, how to put in place honey marketing schemes and help to develop local training.
