Now new clinics are popping up all across the country, offering everything from lip fillers to anti-wrinkle injections. It is little wonder that some big-name investors are injecting big money into the industry. As reported in the Sunday Independent last week, serial entrepreneur Pat Phelan is in talks to raise over €50m to fund a growth plan for his Sisu cosmetic treatment business. Phelan is expanding rapidly in Ireland and wants to open at least 20 outlets in London, as well as other cities where he has identified a growing demand for treatments such as teeth whitening, dermal fillers, Botox, lip fillers and laser skin treatment. Meanwhile, Therapie, one of the most-recognisable brands in the cosmetic industry in Ireland, is planning a massive buildout across the UK's struggling main streets. The Irish-run business, which is headed up by siblings Philip and Katie McGlade, claims to have around 250,000 clients. The company is looking to invest £50m in the UK over the … [Read more...] about Booming cosmetic industry needs a bit of work

How did you end up in the Netherlands?My wife and I were living in Brooklyn, New York about three years ago now and we had found that we were travelling to Europe more and more often and that the cost of getting here and the time it took was just kind of killing us. We figured that we would find a way to get closer to our end goal, which was to live here for a few years and see if we liked it. I was freelancing for a company in New York City that had strongholds all over the world and I put in for a European destination and they told me they had an Amsterdam office and had a position available. We came out here for a week to see if we liked the city and taste the food and feel the culture. We decided that we wanted to make the move for sure. They offered me the job, and my wife was able to get a job through her network also, and seven months later we moved over. It felt like home when we came here. When we went back to New York [to visit], we saw it with new eyes. Park Slope and those … [Read more...] about ‘I have a new appreciation for the ‘rules’ of society’
It was the night before his second tour of Afghanistan when Callum Darbyshire got involved in a fight that would see his life take a catastrophic turn. Recruited by 2nd Battalion The Rifles in Northern Ireland when he was just a teenager, life as a soldier was all Callum had known. His first tour of Helmand province had left him a 'completely changed man', suffering with an adjustment disorder, presenting similar symptoms to PTSD. But things got yet harder in 2013, as he was gearing up for his second tour. The night before the battalion's departure was fuelled by alcohol, excitement and anticipation of what was to come - a recipe which ultimately ended in disaster. He ended up in a drunken brawl, which meant by the age of 23 his army career was over for good and he was beginning a two-year stretch behind bars for causing grievous bodily harm. It was the first time he had been in trouble with the police, or anyone at all. "We had all been preparing to go out on our second tour at the … [Read more...] about “I came out of the army a criminal, but I got a second chance”
opinion Bonnie Venable Florida Today Opinion Published 6:00 AM EDT Apr 9, 2019 I have never really been afraid for my personal safety. However, in these changing times, I firmly believe in the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms. I grew up in Brevard County, Florida, having moved to Merritt Island in 1959. In today's world, we are surrounded by violence everywhere, both explicit and implicit. We are bombarded with movies and TV shows that seem to glorify mayhem and violence. Our young people are enthralled with war games and other violent ways to deal with the "bad guys" on their Xboxes, PlayStations and smartphones. We see spectators and athletes getting into verbal and sometimes physical conflicts. We see horrific acts against people, children and animals every day in the news and on social media. Our society seems to be lost in the mire of noncivility toward each other. We see looting and riots in cities in the aftermath of … [Read more...] about I carry a concealed weapon: I will not go quietly into the night.
