陽光透過清澈的天空灑落大地

又是一個週末午後,依然睡眼朦朧的我母乳 研究,走過屋外的一片蔥蘢,拾階來到江邊。想著深深吸一口溫潤而新鮮的空氣,讓自己從睡意中蘇醒。當我不經意間的抬頭,一幀美輪美奐的景色映入眼簾,我還以為是夢中的海市蜃樓。蔚藍的天空清澈明亮,白雲朵朵隨風飄蕩,鳥兒 在明媚的陽光裏自由飛翔;豔陽高照下一洗的大地依然生機勃勃;盈滿的河水蕩漾著片片鱗光,不時有漁夫開著小舟從我眼前掠過,看船體的水線便知道是滿載而 歸,難怪嘟嘟的馬達聲是如此鏗鏘有力,而漁夫笑靨上的皺褶傳播到了河面,蕩漾起了層層漣漪;水湄間的蒹葭和著波濤輕輕搖曳,仿佛在召喚著我去沐浴這難得的 冬之秋爽。我被這美麗所震住,杵在畫卷中如癡如醉地端詳,此時的我,再慵懶也禁不住這幅掩映生姿的美景感召。提起照相機,順著汕頭新拓圍的海岸線,在天地 勾勒的畫卷裏暢遊。
濕暖借著海風輕拂著我的臉龐,陽光透過清澈的天空灑落大地,我擁抱著上天的饋贈,咀嚼著這難得的一抹爽朗,細心記錄著消縱即逝的燦爛,因為,我怕追 不上時光的腳步,失去午後的一簾溫婉。興許,老天爺在暗示些什麼,一解冬之秋爽的緣由。踏著和煦的陽光,追逐著流淌的河水,我首先來到周魯之濱,新津河的 尾閭母乳 原生營養。舉目望去,滔滔河水川流不息,隔岸間沙丘聳立,正為建設做著鋪墊,而我的身後也聳立了不少高樓。河岸邊,佈滿歲月斫雕為樸的大石塊,這些石頭像是等待被發現的璞玉;像光滑圓潤的鵝蛋;像堅定不移的衛士。仿佛那散落在銀河的繁星;猶若那定居在河流的精靈;又似那若有若無的回憶, 沉澱著歲月滄桑遺留的印跡。我小心翼翼地踩過高低錯落的石頭,去親近岸沿的沙灘。當我坐在沙石上,凝視著這一泓清澈的河水,疑惑於它之蔚藍。忽然我明白 了,因為河流與大海在此交匯,轉瞬間河水將融入大海的懷抱母乳 原生營養。這一半沙一半石的岸邊,浸泡著一半鹹一半淡的河水,不正映襯著潮汕人一半農耕一半海洋的文化蘊含。

Athletic retirement


FORMER WORLD CHAMPION and three-time Olympian Derval O’Rourke has announced her retirement from athletics.

“It’s been a tough decision but it feels like the right time,” O’Rourke, 33, said in a statement released this morning.

The Leevale AC athlete had hoped to return to action at the European Championships in August, but hung up her spikes after accepting that she would not be in a position to contend for a medal in Zurich.

“Going to a Championships just to be there, isn’t me,” she said reenex
.

O’Rourke’s final competitive race came at the European Indoors in March 2013 where she was upgraded to bronze after winner Nevin Yanit of Turkey tested positive for banned substances.

It was her fifth championship medal along with European silver medals in the 100m hurdles in 2006 and 2010, and a 60m hurdles bronze from the 2009 European Indoors reenex.

The highlight of her 12-year senior career came in 2006 when she was crowned the world indoor champion in Moscow, blitzing the field to take 60m hurdles gold in 7.84 seconds.

O’Rourke retires with three Irish senior records still intact (50m indoor hurdles, 60m indoor hurdles and 100m hurdles) and as a three-time Olympian having represented her country at Athens 2004, Beijing 2008 and London 2012.

“I’ve had an absolutely amazing career in athletics and for that I am so grateful to all the support I have received along the way.”

She added: “I’ve been extremely lucky with the team I’ve had around me. Sean and Terrie Cahill are the rock that my success has been built on. Together we forged a way to be successful on a world stage and I’m incredibly grateful for their focus, passion and dedication.

“I’ve loved every minute of my athletics career but now I’m going to take some time to reflect on what has been a very privileged job for me for the past 12 years and make some decisions for the future.”reenex

CHANGES TO THE Invalidity Pension scheme have been announced by the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform today, Limited company Hong Kong with the higher rate previously offered to some recipients being gradually faded out.

The Invalidity Pension is a weekly payment afforded to people covered by social insurance who cannot work due to long-term illness or disability. Until now, the payment has totalled €193.50 a week for under-65s, with that payment being raised to €230.50 a week for those aged 65-66.

The higher rate will now be abolished for all but those currently availing of it Accounting in HK, Minister Brendan Howlin today announced.

A spokesman for Age Action Ireland said it was unclear how many people this change would affect, due to those aged over 66 being eligible to move on to a state pension – but, by the same measure, queried how much the change could be saving the State.

“I’m not sure how much money they expect to save with this Hong Kong Company Secretary,” he said. “It’s another case of hitting older people and the most vulnerable.”
