Ok im looking at three news stories on the net.......regarding Ireland i missing something here ?????????

1 New five-year aid programme for Uganda launched

Foreign Affairs Minister Micheál Martin was today launching Ireland’s new country strategy programme for Uganda, one of the world's poorest countries.

The programme, which runs from 2010-2015, will see Ireland focussing its support on some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in the African nation.

The main areas of support include targeted programmes in education, tackling HIV and AIDS and providing assistance for peace and reconciliation in the north of the country.

Speaking in Uganda where he was on a three-day visit, Minister Martin said:“Uganda has made huge progress in the last 16 years that Ireland has worked with in partnership with its Government and people.

"We are seeing real and measurable results on the ground. Poverty levels have reduced, HIV and AIDS rates have declined and the numbers of children in school have increased dramatically.

"However the country still faces real challenges and that is why Ireland is determined to continue to support Uganda’s efforts to reduce poverty and promote economic development."

2 Dole numbers rise to record 450,000

More than 450,000 people are now signing on the dole – the highest number in the history of the State, figures revealed today.

Taoiseach Brian Cowen admitted he was disappointed by the latest live register statistics but insisted the Government was doing everything it could to turn the economy around.

But Labour Party leader Eamon Gilmore claimed the coalition was not taking joblessness seriously.

“That’s 300,000 more than were on the live register when the general election took place in May 2007,” he told the Taoiseach in the Dáil.

“That’s 100,000 jobs lost each year that your Government in its present form has been in office – 2,000 a week.”

The total number signing on for benefits in June was 452,882, but once seasonal factors are taken into consideration the figure is adjusted to 444,900.

The seasonally adjusted figure rose by 5,800 between May and June while overall unemployment is now at 13.4% of the workforce – up from 12.9% in the first three months of the year, according to the Central Statistics Office.

3 Delay in promised cystic fibrosis unit 'unacceptable', says Minister

Minister for Communications Eamon Ryan has said its 'unacceptable' that a promised cystic fibrosis unit at St Vincent's Hospital in Dublin has yet to be delivered.

His cabinet colleague, Minister for Health Mary Harney, announced two years ago that a special 120-bed facility would be built.

Ireland has the highest incidence of cystic fibrosis in the world with life expectancy of sufferers 10 years lower than in Britain or the US.
