UCC is going plastic freeucc

University College Cork (UCC) announced it is going plastic free in the new year. UCC will eliminate all single-use plastic in its operations throughout on campus dining, shops and vending machines from 2 January 2023.

‘Plastic Free UCC’ is the latest initiative by the University which is focused on continuous improvement for sustainability across its activities.

Professor John O’Halloran, UCC President, said: “Reducing our use of disposable plastic is significant step forward in our sustainability efforts at UCC. We cannot continue to overconsume plastic in the name of convenience.  In the areas of research and action towards the transition to more sustainable society, UCC will continue to lead and hopefully inspire action.”

Plastic

Asha Woodhouse, UCC Students’ Union President said: “Single-Use Plastics are a significant source of environmental pollution. This has been recognised by UCC Students' Union for a number of years, and in 2018 we launched a petition to make UCC a single-use plastic free campus by 2023 which reached over 8,000 signatures. I am delighted to see the University Leadership Team, SUP Action Group and UCC Green Campus implement a policy that will deliver this ambition and once again position UCC as a leader nationally and internationally in sustainability."

Manage Your Study Time EfficientlyELearning Infographics

Some students know how to manage time and balance everything very well. Others, not so much. Manage your time efficiently with a timer. Use a timer! There’s no need to sit in your room all day or all night studying. Just because you’re poring over your textbook for hours doesn’t mean it’s real study. Instead, use a timer to maximize each study session. This allows your brain to focus in a more targeted and effective way.

10 startling images of nature in crisis — and the struggle to save it

A visual tour of unfolding threats and desperate attempts to reverse species' declines.

 

Global statistics on declining biodiversity can give the impression that every population of every species is in a downward spiral. In fact, many populations are stable or growing, while a small number of species faces truly existential challenges. These photos capture some specific crises. They are images of threats unfolding, of desperate attempts at species defence and of the beautiful living world that is at stake.

ATU 2022 Science graduate wins prestigious national awardATU

 

ATU 2022 Science graduate Colette Collins has won a prestigious national award, the “2022 SURE Network Award for Best Oral Presentation”, at this year’s Science Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) Network Conference for her research presentation entitled, “Exploring the relationship between the menstrual cycle and markers of physical performance in intercounty Ladies Gaelic Football player”.

 

The event was jointly hosted by Technological University Dublin (TUD) and South-East Technological University (SETU), Carlow, in October (2022).

 

For the study, 20 inter-county players were recruited during the pre-season training phase.
All players completed a detailed online survey. Two distinct phases of the menstrual cycle were subsequently identified, the early follicular phase (day 1-5) and the mid-luteal phase (20-25). Over the next month, the participants were tested during these two phases, via a 20m sprint test and a maximal jump height test.  Overall, the participants had a significantly slower sprint time in the early follicular phase in comparison to the mid-luteal phase with no difference in jump height observed. 

“Qualitatively, all players reported experiencing menstrual cycle symptoms and 50% believed that these symptoms affected their playing performance,” says Colette. “In addition, the qualitative survey analysis highlighted the lack of player awareness or understanding of the potential impact of the menstrual cycle on sport. Furthermore, despite the prevalence of symptoms, only 15% of players had previously discussed this issue with their coach. Players also declined to highlight recurrent concerns regarding sufficient changing and sanitary facilities at matches.” says Colette. “The findings of this study indicated that women’s health should be considered during formal reviews of athlete performance and strategies should be implemented to encourage more open communication between coaches and their athletes. Lastly, it is clear that both coaches and players would benefit from educational training on the potential physiological impact of the menstrual cycle phases on athlete performance.”

 

Colette Collins, a 2022 graduate of the ATU B.Sc. (Hons) in Sport and Exercise Science was awarded the ‘2022 SURE Network Award for Best Oral Presentation’ at the annual SURE Network conference in TU Dublin on 14 October. Colette’s award was presented by Dr Ciarán O’Leary, Head of Learning Development, Faculty of Computing, Digital and Data, TU Dublin.

Colette, from Carrowmore Lacken, Co Mayo, completed her final year B.Sc. (Hons) in Sport and Exercise Science in June 2022 and graduated last month (November 2022). She was one of 61 students from six different Higher Education institutes around Ireland to present their research projects to a national audience of over 400 final year undergraduate students. 


“Completing this research was an eye opener from start to finish”, she says. “The taboo surrounding the menstrual cycle is still evidently present in today’s society at all levels in sport. It has spiked a major passion within me for menstrual cycle specific research in sport and I hope to continue to progress the literature in this area going forward. A huge thank you to my supervisor Dr Siobhan Leahy for her help and guidance throughout this process”.

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dr Siobhan Leahy, ATU Galway-Mayo Department of Sport, Exercise & Nutrition, who supervised Colette’s research said: “Colette’s achievement in winning this award is just reward for a huge amount of work that went into the planning and conduct of her project. This is a hugely important area of the research with the potential to inform planning of training programs and phases for female athletes competing at all levels”.

 

Dr Therese Montgomery, ATU Galway-Mayo lecturer and chair of the National SURE Network says: “I wish to congratulate Collette and her supervisor Dr Leahy on their excellent and timely research. I wish Collette well as she prepares to present this research at the World Conference of Undergraduate Research (WorldCUR) taking place in the UK, April 2022, as kindly sponsored by the Department of Sport, Exercise and Nutrition in ATU Galway-Mayo in further recognition of Collette’s significant achievement at the SURE Conference.

 

“It was wonderful to see the high level of student engagement from ATU Galway students at the conference this year. In fact, eight of the 61 national research presentations were by ATU Galway students, thus highlighting the breadth and diversity of research excellence supported by our academic staff taking place at undergraduate level here on our Galway campus. The annual research conference is only one of the great research initiatives taking place within the SURE Network and further information on each of our different projects may be found on the SURE Network website here

Dr Lisa Ryan, Head of the Department of Sport, Exercise & Nutrition at ATU Galway-Mayo recently organised a “Women in Sport’ event as part of Galway Science and Technology Festival and said that ‘we are proud of Colette’s achievement not only in winning this prestigious award but also for shining a light on some of the unique needs of females in sport.”

10 Things to Know About … Circular EconomyTEAGASC

Ireland exports over a third of its municipal waste for recycling. However, once it leaves our shores, we do not know where it ends up and have no control over whether it is even recycled. The current system is not sustainable; but what if, what we are throwing away as “waste”, is not just salvageable, but rich in resources?

(L-R) Maurice Deasy, Teagasc; presenter Jonathan McCrea; and Fiona Thorne, Teagasc

In this episode of the 10 Things to Know About … TV show on RTE One, we meet the scientists developing technologies to recycle nutrients in wastewater from dairy farms to produce protein-rich biomass, enabling a closed-loop rural feed industry that could also help produce more environmentally friendly bioplastics. We will also see how slurry and food waste can be transformed into green, renewable energy and speak to the farmers at the heart of this initiative.

 

 

In last July’s announcement of the sectoral emissions ceilings, which forms part of the carbon budgets outlined in the Climate Action Plan, the country’s target for biomethane production have increased substantially. Research economist, Dr Fiona Thorne, from Teagasc’s Rural Economy and Development programme explains: “To underpin the transformational change which will be required to facilitate large scale roll out of Anaerobic Digestion (AD) technology across Ireland, substantial research questions remain. Researchers here in Teagasc are carrying out research relating to AD, from the perspective of the farm level, relating to economic and environmental sustainability of the innovation’. 

Dr Maurice Deasy, a post-doctoral researcher with Teagasc, working on an SEAI-GNI (Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland/Gas Networks Ireland)-funded project, is currently examining costs for farmers associated with supplying alternative feedstocks suitable for AD plants in Ireland. Dr Deasy says: “Using Teagasc National Farm Survey data, we are examining economic, environmental, and transport models of alternative scenarios for farm scale feedstock solutions for supply to regional AD facilities”.
