Love of Memory

Very Short List points to a new study done in Switzerland based on the effects of Oxytocin on memory.

According to the researchers, their results demonstrate that the “love hormone” plugs directly into the brain’s memory system (and might even lead to new treatments for memory loss). So don’t bother trying to forget about those exes of yours: Thanks to oxytocin, their faces are permanently seared into your consciousness.

Ouch!

Free Wedding in London?

The BBC reports that a Ukrainian bride is looking for guests for her side of the wedding.

The woman says in the advertisement: “I’m having a large mixed wedding of about 150 people.

“My partner has loads of family around to invite to the wedding. Unfortunately for me, my family are all in Ukraine so they all can’t make it. Only my mum and dad will be there.”

Volunteers have to send a photograph and write about themselves, but in return they get invited to the reception.

Perfect opportuntity for any “Wedding Crashers”!

Irish Examiner needs a geography lesson

Related to an article about Conor Cruise O’Brien’s red bias in RTE. Perhaps the letter was a deliberate fake if they are quoting from the address on the letter. Some of the passages are hilarious in which case, if it was taken seriously, geography lessons should have been required much further up the line.

Writing on March 20, 1978, Joseph O’Reilly of Achill Island, Co Galway, wrote that he wished “to draw [the taoiseach’s] attention to the news coverage by RTÉ particularly on television, of the French elections”.

JP Grealis – Missing Irish Person in the Netherlands

I just got an email forwarded on about an Irish person from Achill who has been missing since November 2008.

Dear All,
Happy New Year to all and apologies for not sending any Christmas cards this year, my family and I are going through a tough time as my brother, JP, is missing in the Netherlands.

I have a favour to ask, could you please pass on this mail with the information below – I know it’s a long shot but it may reach someone that has seen him in the past few weeks, we will try anything at this stage. We have been doing everything we can to find JP with the Police and the Embassy and also my sisters, Mani, my brother-in laws and JP’s friends have searched various places in the Netherlands but there appears to be no trace of him since he was seen in Eindhoven during the 1st week of November. It seems unlikely but he may have travelled outside of the Netherlands so we are also searching in
Belgium/Spain/Germany etc.

Thank you,
Clare
