I AM SURPRISED to receive a nomination in the podcasting category of the Edublog Awards for 2012 (#eddies12) because I was trying to keep this blog and its podcast off the radar. I have not succeeded.
The Educasting channel will become part of iTunes U in 2013 if creative multimedia students in the Limerick School of Art and Design complete a series of taskings in several academic modules. At the moment, Educasting from Ireland remains a work in progress. But friends in the Audioboo listening community are telling friends about it and those friends are visiting the site and that's causing me to accelerate the work needed to make the site actually worth a visit (or a vote).
The sweet spot for Educasting from Ireland is powered by an Audioboo channel called Educasting. It's where I hope visitors will go, subscribe and contribute. The Audioboo community is the most refreshing example of real social media and they have proven to me that authentic online social networking happens through social audio.

The Mahon report was set up to examine allegations of payments to politicians and corruption within the irish government. The Word Cloud above shows this very clearly.
The Mahon Report's main focus was on former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern. This is documented in the Mahon Report. Politicians received money from property developers then often made decisions favourable to those developers. Although new housing estates were built, surrounding infrastructure often never received planning consideration.
Today in Ireland, there are hundrends of houses and bulidings around the country that are left uncompleted. In the local area, it's easy to see vacant houses on the Dublin Road overlooking the Rock of Cashel and the same kind of ghost estate near Glenconner in Clonmel, County Tipperary.
For me, a third level student and an observer of the Mahon Report, I feel it was wrong for the government to spend so much money on wages, expenses and pensions. It was wrong to accept money for access to politicians. And it is wrong to be cleaning up the banking mess that evolved on the back of an overheated economy falsely powered by construction.

The Mahon Tribunal was set up to help prevent or investigate corruption within the Irish government. Among those that are being investigated are former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern. It is alledged that he took approximately €250,000.
Former European Minister Padraig Flynn is also being investigated for corruption in the planning process (e.g. agreeing to the construction of proprerties that should have not been built). Now in almost every town across the country there are ghost estates that remain half finished or an eyesore to the surrounding communities.
It is the belief of many that their pensions of €152,000 a year should be taken off them and any money that was taken should be paid back and used for vital resources such as schools and hospitals and roads.
In my opinoin I think its unfair for the general public to pay for the damages caused by the politicians in our government. Our country is in a mess and we owe a lot of money to other countries and the general public are suffering through various cuts and there is a lack of trust between the public and their government.

measuring is the process or the result of determining the ratio of hysical quantity, such as a length,time and temperature. while counting is trying to figure out the number of things, or how much things cost.
Measuring is more important than counting becasue it gives you an accurate measure or balance of things. e.g it is important to measure how many tiles you would need for your kichen floor, than to try and count how many tiles are needed.
for deeper discussions go to Katie Paine's Measure What Matters Book.
