There is but it's already announced. County wide travel allowed, two households allowed meet up outside (snigger), schools all back and private house construction plus school construction allowed.
probably was a pisstake but heard on the radio that non essential retail and hairdressers would open in may....but only for vaccinated people.....
Can't see how they police that. Shops certainly won't. Hairdressers were asking for that but again, how do you expect them to police it?
I cant see us figuring out how to implement a 2 tier system for vaccinated vs non vaccinated citizens ; it makes perfect sense but given that our IT systems are sh1te I cant see how they'd make it happen.
arent they saying that 2 people can meet indoors if they're vaccinated ? once you get over the fact that its only 2 people and not unlimited (are the government the biggest anti vaxers ?)how are they going to enforce that ?

That's the beauty of it.

You don't police it. Everybody goes back to normal. Zero Covid crew are told it's only for the full vaccinated.

Job done
Hopefully.

Getting any kind of vaccine passport system setup for domestic use in the next 3 months is a pipe dream - don't even think about in the next 3 weeks :lol:

There are broadly two types of restrictions that we have, those on individuals and those on businesses/institutions. Individual ones are already pretty much impossible to enforce in Ireland - I've went from Dublin out west 2-3 times in the past few months to watch various matches with the auld fella and never saw a Gard on the road. Restrictions on businesses are much easier to enforce on a blanket level - no retail, no gyms, no hairdressers etc. But I don't think it will hold for a minute if they introduce exceptions.

Internationally is another game altogether

The current shit storm with MHQ will ensure that vaccine passport system setup for domestic use will not happen, they'll kick that can down the road for a little bit though.

I was listening to it in the car and fell for it. Only when I told my wife about the first thing she pointed out was that it was a pisstake.

They did it well though, I liked Ciara's signoff ".. and I'm out tomorrow for Good Friday and also on Monday .. (blah, blah ).. so if Shane is out there listening I just have one messsage for him - see you next Tuesday"

The MBA programmed in UCD was originally set up to teach management to Engineers in business.
Really? They set up the MIE in UCD Eng (for that stated purpose) only 3 years after they started the MBA in Commerce (1964) - I'd be very surprised if it wasn't more motivated by the ridiculous fees you can get away with charging for an MBA

Tom Widdis, a lecturer in civil engineering was instrumental in setting it up. It was in the Dept of Commerce, but not aimed at BComm graduates, who would have covered a lot of the material in their undergraduate courses.

Mr Martin was asked about the possibility of a cap on the number of people arriving into the country.

“But we’re not at that stage yet.”
Caps on numbers are inevitable. It’s exactly what’s happened anywhere that has done this.
We have 220 people in hospital FFS, it'll be under 200 by the end of the week, and we're talking about shutting down even more ?

It's absolute madness.

The MIE really was an antiquated out of date course when I was considering a masters in the late 90s. They really had the dross of the department lecturing it.

Is that the precursor to the Masters in Business for non-business grads? It's a B.Comm in a year in effect.

Yeah there was some shenanigans with his transfer from Fordham, which he threatened legal action about but his claim to have graduated first in his class is an outright lie.

Trump 'graduated' without honours. Some schools base honours on GPA percentile, but Wharton bases them simply on GPA, which means that in order to graduate without honours, his GPA had to have been less than a 3.40. However, none of his graduating class ever remember him being there : either in class or on campus.

Depends what sort of masters you're doing and which field it's in.
I did a Professional Diploma in 2019/2020 and am currently over halfway through my second one. I get the masters if I complete three.
Much more manageable.
However, if you don't have kids and have the time, maybe best to get it all done as quickly as possible.
MBA is a nightmare to do part time though. Workload is insane
Friend of mine did an MBA in her 30's she said it was a complete waste of time when looking for jobs in Ireland. It is well recognised in the states but made little or no difference here if you were already at a certain level of say middle management already.
Really depends what your professional area is. Banking /finance, MBA is a good thing but it really comes into it's own in the 'land of corporate Head office' where it's a case of what school you got your MBA in !!!!
She had been working over 10 years in banking and had a redundancy from a Swiss bank who were based in the IFSC. She did her MBA in Trinity. She was actually unemployed for a year afterwards, there were lots of lower end jobs but not many even middle management jobs and the MBA didn't make much difference here. She did a good bit of contracting, she is single with no dependents so could be more picky.
Friend of mine did it a bit younger and he now lives in the states where it seems to be alot more recognised.
MBA in the US is generally taken in your late 20s. It's a proper college experience in the likes of HBS, no part-time working and the likes. You live on campus etc.

You're better off in Ireland doing them as part of your work given the cost. The Smurfit Masters would allow you to pivot into a new career if you wanted but you won't be going in as some hotshot.

Back in my day the Wall Street investment houses would recruit directly from Wharton. Guys would have a firm job offer before packing their bags from their rooms. I went back to my job on about 35K less than I could have got had my employer not paid for my course....swings and roundabouts.

Late 20s is the average age. Most will have a few years work experience under their belt. You can spot a HBS type a mile off in Cambridge/Boston.

It used to be a thing to do it straight out of undergrad, changed in the 70s I believe.

I don't believe it has changed back again recently, but could be mistaken. The people I know have all been late 20s.

Lovely!

7 day average is now 2.88%
