There are probably more riders in your constituency than the winning margin by which your next TD gets elected. Remind candidates of this and use our questionnare. http://www.magireland.org/tag/riders-are-voters/

Hopefully we get the unicorn and rainbows ending.
What will really happen if artificial intelligence takes the jobs we have today? How would society change if we got a basic income?

Will Our Descendants Survive the Destruction of the Universe?

http://flip.it/3GZQx
Billions of years from now, the universe as we know it will cease to exist. The good news is, that gives us a lot of time to prepare, and maybe even figure out a way to cheat cosmic death. Here are some possible ways our descendants might survive a cosmological apocalypse.

Introduction
Hi there,

At various times I have been a tinker, sailor, soldier, biker. Just moved industries from academia into the motorcycle industry. The Triumph & Ducati person for the Republic of Ireland. Call into me Dublin Triumph or Rosso Ducati Ireland. 

Motorcycles have been the love of my life, and have ridden since the age of 17 (still yet to get a cage licence). Previously loved bikes have included Suzuki's, Kawasaki's and Buell's, though I am currently riding my first Honda. I also follow BSB, WSBK and MotoGP, and watch the odd AMA round whenever I catch it on TV. I am also a member of MAG Ireland, helping to protect motorcyclists rights.

PhD candidate in Dublin City University's School of Law and Government. My primary focus is on political violence, then broadening out to international relations, security and conflict. On the politics side I try to keep tabs of U.S. politics as much as time allows, though with the demise of NPRs "Its All Politics" thats gotten much harder.

I have been a Linux user since 2007, since then I try to take as active role that I can within the Ubuntu community and help in development and testing each release cycle. In December 2010 I was also lucky enough to be provided a Cr-48 as part of the Google test pilot programme for their Chrome OS. Recently transitioned to Fedora (August 2013) to see how the other side lives!

Needless to say I am a fan of technology in general, and an android smartphone, Nexus 7 and/or Kindle are always close to hand. Have been a Sci-Fi fan all of my life too, but that should come of no surprise.

I enjoy travelling, especially by motorcycle and try to share as much of my journeys that I can. You can find various albums in my Flickr account. Some of my photos have been included in tour guides (Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island Immigration Museum and Capitol Hill). Some more photos are due to be published in a book about Scottish lighthouses (link when published) and other photos have been included at the 9/11 Preview Site for the 9/11 Memorial Museum.
