Happy Valentine’s Day: Top Dating Apps For iPhone, iPad And Android

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… In the war among Web-based dating sites, OKCupid has long been the nerdy, slightly neurotic destination compared with the stuffier Match.com and eHarmony. The younger crowd in particualr, swears by it. From an app design perspective, it is really nothing special – using the classic mobile layout of top and sidebar menus, messaging and photos, and the ability to find people near you. The kicker? Unlike basically every other app or service listed above OKCupid is totally free.Something For Everybody?The mobile dating apps listed above are only the beginning. There are plenty of alternatives, including Dating DNA: One of the first dating apps on iOS or Android – but few have heard of it.Skout: Similar to Tinder or even Banjo or Highlight. iLove: Dating app from Germany that recently went global.Lovoo: A “flirt radar” location-based meeting app. Singles Around Me: Another in the location-based  “social discovery” genre. For iPhone, Android and even BlackBerry 10. Finally, if you have a very specific dating interest (looking for love with a sea captain or a farmer, for instance), check out this roundup of interest-specific dating sites from BuzzFeed. Be warned, however, some of these preferences are extremely specific.Are you looking for love through your mobile device? What apps are you using? Have any good, bad … weird experiences? Let us know in the comments. Top image courtesy of Shutterstock. Mobile-only dating apps are a little bit like the Wild West. You are not quite sure what you are going to get for your time and money. Services like Match.com are a little more trustworthy, a little more reliable. You are still going to pay, but there are more predictable expectation of what you are going to get and who you might meet. Tied closely to the Web version of the service,  Match.com app is easy to use and understand. It does not connect to your Facebook profile.eHarmony: iOS/Android This “flirting” app connects to your Facebook profile and theoretically uses your astrological sign to help you make connections. In reality, it is just a way to connect your Facebook profile to a “dating” app and gives you a bunch of random, sortable lists of pictures and profiles. You can chat and share pictures, and get “stickers” for random “achievements.” Moonit is free but has an extensive in-app purchase system based on its Star Membership feature. To connect or flirt with a potential match, you have to use the Stars, a virtual currency. You can purchase more stars or become a Star Member for $9.99 a month with discounts for signing up for longer periods of time.Blendr: iPhone/Android Let’s face it: Dating is hard.Where do you meet people? How do you get them to know you might be interested? Which dating site works best? Single people know there are thousands of ways to meet a potential significant other. Whether that means trolling the bars and coffee shops of your city or reluctantly agreeing to let your friends hook you up on a blind date with their friend, dating has become a complicated mess of connections, potential and frustration. How to make sense of it all?Fortunately, there’s an app for that. Actually, there are thousands of apps for that.2012 saw an explosion of dating apps, helping the social apps category to pass gaming as the apps that people spend the most time with, according to a Flurry report.It makes sense. Dating apps are designed to get you to spend a lot of time with them, trolling through photos and profiles either out of genuine interest or morbid curiosity. Either way, from the serious platform to the creepy and stalker-ish, here are some of the most popular dating apps on iOS and Android to help smartphone users find love (or maybe just somebody to cuddle). The BuzzworthyThese are the mobile dating apps that everybody’s talking about.Tinder: iPhone This new iPhone app that is all the rage among the college crowd. Tinder is an anonymous, location-based app that allows you to look for singles in your vicinity. The app will look for people near you it thinks you may like. If you do, you can “Like” them. If they Like you back, you can chat right within the app. It is kind of like Highlight or Banjo for singles. Some people find it kind of creepy, but thousands of satisfied (no pun intended) college students may be on to something. Let’s Date: iPhone The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Yet another location-based flirting/dating app that uses location and your Facebook profile to help you connect. Blendr’s mix of location and profiles is more granular and specific than Moonit’s and does not tack on the silly astrology quotient. It has an “Encounters” setting that lets you cycle through nearby people but allows you to do so only with “Super Powers” – yet another expensive in-app purchase currency/subscription model. MeetMoi: iPhone/Android Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verificationcenter_img dan rowinski Tags:#Android#App Economy#iOS#online dating#smartphones Calling itself, “the Instagram of dating,” Let’s Date tries to eliminate the creepy and awkward portions of the online dating world. Whether that is even possible, given the genre, is hard to tell. Let’s Date lets you to create a “dater card” through your Facebook profile and browse other people’s dating cards. When you see when you like, you hit “Let’s Date.” If the other person likes you too, you can chat through the app to set up the encounter. When the date is over you can leave feedback and earn badges. Yes, badges. Because we always wanted an app that gamifies dating. The Ones With PotentialThese apps have some buzz, but can’t the hype of Let’s Date or Tinder.Moonit: iPhone/iPad Related Posts Still another location-based dating app that connects to your Facebook profile. MeetMoi gives users more specific profiles than some of its competitors, but really isn’t all that different from Blendr or Moonit, except for a slightly slicker user interface. For TraditionalistsThese traditional Web-based dating sites have mobile apps associated with them. Match.com: iOS/Android From a pure platform perspective, there is really not that much difference between Match.com and eHarmony go about finding you a mate. But the eHarmony apps are much slicker and more enjoyable than Match.com’s. This is app design with thought and insight as opposed to just trying to copy the style and feel of a website onto a mobile device. Say what you want about the inherent charms of eHarmony vis-a-vis the competition, the app is certainly slick.OKCupid: iPhone/Android A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditlast_img read more

A recap of all the features that are new to the Apple ecosystem

first_imgApple has changed its plans through the years, from the first iPhone to the 5S. On Tuesday, surprisingly, the smartphone market got two separate sizes on the same morning, and they’re accompanying a lot of different changes. Outwardly, the iPhone 6 is still extremely conspicuous as an Apple product. Now, the glass front melts into the bended all-metal sides on both models, and they’re more slender than past models, with a huge size knock-up for even the little model. The camera distends marginally from the back. Battery life on the littler iPhone 6 is seeing a moderate improvement, with 10 hours more talk time and an hour more Wi-Fi skimming time, and the 6 Plus will sport a bigger battery, getting twice the time as the iPhone 5S’ 40 hours and a few hours more of perusing the web. In any case, it’s still the distinctive dark rectangle with bended edges, a revert to Apple’s unique configuration – somewhat toned down at the edges.The iPhone 6 PlusApple entered the phablet market with the iPhone 6 Plus, its biggest ‘phone’ ever. The Plus has a 5.5-inch screen and a Retina HD screen showing visuals at 1920 by 1080 pixels, or 185 percent the pixels of the iPhone 5S, while being thinner than iPhone 5S, at 7.1 millimeters. The home screen can now be landscape-oriented; additionally, a few applications (as of now) utilize the larger screen to display extra info. The input keyboard now has devoted buttons for cut-copy-paste, marking another tick for Apple’s flair for customer centricity..The Plus has another accessibility feature for small-handed people (or those who just don’t want to stretch their hands: reachability, which is a two-tap on the home TouchID that brings down the top half of the current screen to reach the highest point of the screen without changing or losing your grip. It’s all fueled by a 64-bit A8 chip, which is 13 percent more diminutive than its antecedent, yet offers fundamentally enhanced processing, especially for gaming apps. The iPhone 6advertisementContrasted with the 4-inch iPhone 5S, the iPhone 6 is still a comparatively huge iPhone with its 4.7-inch Retina HD screen. Be that as it may, the screen size only places it in the middle range of most other Android phones available. The resolution is 1334 x 750 pixels, up from the 5S’ 1136 x 640 pixel density and an additional hard “ion strengthened” screen. The new body is 6.9mm rather than 7.6mm, with a slight projection for the camera. Battery life has been improved alongside speedier execution from the new A8 processor and new functionalities from iOS 8.The A8 chip meets expectations with an indicator for a wellness center as well as a barometer for measuring atmospheric pressure, allowing the iPhone 6 and 6+ to know the relative altitude of the user.The new iPhones brag enhanced cameras, however they begin with the same 8-megapixel back camera with a f/2.2 gap as the last model. Anyway the sensor has been redesigned, and the iSight sensor has “focus pixels.” Those pixels offer DSLR-like facial identification, self-adjust, and make taking photos twice as quick as the 5S. Both new iPhones can bring HDR shots with a solitary click of the screen. Apple has additionally brought back “True Tone Flash,” which, in the same way as the last model, utilizes two separate LEDs. Videos can be shot at 1080p at 30 or 60 fps, and slo-mo mode captures 240 fps. Panoramas can have upto 43 megapixels, and the iPhone 6 Plus has optical image stabilization. Apple’s new platform, iOS 8, will be accessible on September 17. Price The costs begin at $199, and the devices are accessible in grey, white, and gold. The iPhone 6 begins at $199 for 16GB and goes to $399 for 128GB. The 6 Plus begins at $299 for 16GB and goes up to $499 for 128GB. Apple PayTill now, Apple has stayed far from the most broadly acknowledged strategy, NFC installments. That has now changed with Apple Pay. The TouchID unique finger impression scanner in the home button gives an additional layer of security, especially in light of recent celeb nude photos hack and leak. You can either take a picture of a credit or debit card to utilize it or utilize a card that is documented with your iTunes account. Apple has built a strong ecosystem with collaborations with American Express, Visa, MasterCard, six major banks including Chase and Bank of America, and 22,000 retailers, including McDonald’s, Disney, Bloomingdale’s, Walgreens, Whole Foods, Staples, and Macy’s.Apple WatchIt’s not called the iWatch, but simply Watch. Apple is situating its first new significant item since 2010 as a device oozing style quotient, specialized sensors, a wellness tracker, and NFC, in addition to everything else. There are two 38mm and 42 mm sizes, and six separate straps made by Apple itself. There’s an active wear fluoroelastomer band, a cowhide circlet that uses magnets for securing, and a metal bracelet with removable links for fitting small wrists, among others.advertisementIt’s an exact, adjustable timepiece faultless to inside 50 milliseconds. It gives you a chance to keep accurate track of your wellbeing and fitness level, including steps taken and heart rate, and is intended to work flawlessly with the iPhone. It has a touchscreen that can differentiate between a tap and a long press, which get to relevant menus. What’s more, it charges inductively. Apple CEO Tim Cook says it has heaps of functions that weren’t covered in the launch event due to paucity of time; such functions include controlling your Apple TV, serving as a viewfinder for your iPhone camera, and going about as a walkie-talkie.last_img read more

HTC U11 with Snapdragon 835, 6GB RAM, Android 7.1.1 Nougat spotted

first_imgAfter announcing the HTC U Ultra and U Play earlier this year, the Chinese smartphone maker is all set to launch the upcoming HTC U11 on May 16. The company itself confirmed the launch date on its official Twitter handle a few days ago. Ahead of the launch, HTC has been revealing specs details and releasing video teaser of the smartphone, giving little glimpses of the “squeezable” HTC U11. The smartphone has been spotted on a benchmarking site – GeekBench.The GeekBench listing reveals a few specifications that the smartphone is expected to come packed with. According to the listing, HTC U11 will be powered by the latest octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC clocked at 1.9Ghz. Further, the smartphone is expected to run on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat. GeekBench listing also shows that the upcoming HTC smartphone will pack 4GB of RAM with 64GB internal storage.Update: HTC U11 is expected to be launched in two variants, one with the above mentioned 4GB RAM, 64GB storage and the premium version of the smartphone will come with 6GB RAM with 128GB internal storage.Apart from the specs details, GeekBench also reveals the single-core and multi-core test of the upcoming HTC U11. It reveals that the smartphone managed to score around 1912 during the single-core test. While on the other hand during the multi-core test the upcoming HTC U11 scores 6137. The scores seem to be pretty much similar to that of the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+.Also Read: HTC U11 official video teaser shows Edge Sense feature, launch set for May 16advertisementGalaxy S8 in single-core scored 1916 while during multi-core test scored 6011. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ during single-core and multi-core test scored 1929 and 6084 respectively. So, this proves that the upcoming HTC U11’s performance is going to be at par with the Samsung flagships. The HTC U11, if the benchmarking result is accurate, scores more than the Samsung devices. That being the case, the upcoming HTC phone is going to be a tough competition to the recently launched S8 and S8+.The previously released video teaser of the smartphone shows Edge sense feature on board. The teaser shows people squeezing several objects, which reminds us of the Twitter post by HTC which reads: “Squeeze for the Brilliant U”. This basically indicates to the unique gesture system that the device is tipped to come with. The video further shows the upcoming HTC U11 in shiny blue colour. However, the company may also add several other colour variants with time.The key highlight of the phone will be its touch sensitive outer frame. This allows users to open an app, launch the camera app, or even perform any other functions just by hand movements. Basically, the upcoming HTC U series phone will come with the ability to interpret gestures into actions.In terms specifications, the HTC U11 will reportedly come with a 5.5-inch Quad-HD display and will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. Further, the HTC U11 is expected to come packed with 4GB of RAM coupled with 64GB of internal storage and will be backed by a 3,000mAh battery. On the camera front, the HTC flagship smartphone is said to hone a 12-megapixel camera.The smartphone is expected to support Bluetooth 5.0, again, like the Galaxy S8 and S8+. If the previously leaked rumours are to be believed, the U11 will also allegedly come with a 3.5mm audio jack and water-resistance features onboard. Furthermore, speculations are also such that the HTC U11 might also sport the company’s very own virtual assistant, or better known as Sense Companion. The feature was previously seen on HTC U Ultra, launched back in January.last_img read more

Depleted India hope for substantial medals at Asian Athletics Championships 2019

first_img Next Depleted India hope for substantial medals at Asian Athletics Championships 2019India had finished on top of the table with a record-breaking haul of 29 medals (12 gold, 5 silver, 12 bronze) in the 2017 Championships held in Bhubaneswar. The Asian Athletics Championships offers automatic qualification berths for the World Championships.advertisement Press Trust of India DohaApril 20, 2019UPDATED: April 20, 2019 18:42 IST Hima Das will be in action on Day 1 of Asian Athletics Championships 2019 in Doha (AFI Photo)HIGHLIGHTSIndia will be missing some of their key stars, including javelin thrower Neeraj ChopraNational record holders Dharun Ayyasamy (men’s 400m Hurdles), M Sreeshankar are not named in the India teamHima Das will be in action in the 400m event as early as the first day — SundayA severely depleted Indian contingent is unlikely to repeat its unprecedented top-of-the-table finish in the last edition but is still expected to win a substantial number of medals when the Asian Athletics Championships begins here on Sunday.India had finished on top of the table with a record-breaking haul of 29 medals (12 gold, 5 silver, 12 bronze) in the 2017 Championships held in Bhubaneswar. China had finished second with 20 medals.But this time, the 42-member Indian team is not expected to achieve that kind of success with several athletes, including star javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra, missing out of the continental flagship event due to various reasons, including injuries.The biggest name in Indian athletics, Neeraj has suffered an elbow sprain during practice in Patiala and he is not defending the title he had won in 2017. National record holders Dharun Ayyasamy (men’s 400m Hurdles), M Sreeshankar (men’s long jump) and Asian Games 800m gold medallist Manjit Singh were also not named in the team due to injuries.Triple jumper Arpinder Singh, training in the USA, did just 16.34m in the Federation Cup (against qualification standard of 16.50m) and later said he’s focusing on the World Championships to be held at the same venue in September-October.Veteran Sudha Singh, who won a gold in the women’s 3000m steeplechase in 2017, was named in the team despite missing the Federation Cup — which served as the qualifying event — as well as the confirmatory trials, but the Sports Ministry has refused to clear her name.Her tickets to Doha were booked and the Athletics Federation of India made a request to clear her name but the Sports Ministry did not budge.advertisement”The Sports Ministry has refused to clear her name despite the AFI making another request,” a well-placed source told PTI on condition of anonymity.G Lakshmanan fails to make the cutAnother athlete who won two gold in 2017, Govindan Lakshman (men’s 5000m and 1000m) was not picked as he could not finish on the podium in the Federation Cup.The number of medals, as well as gold count, is certain to come down from the last edition. This will also be a climb down from the high at the Jakarta Asian Games last year, when the country won 19 medals including seven gold.Hima Das in action in 400m race on SundayThe first day on Sunday will decide eight gold medals and from the Indian perspective, the women’s 400m final will be the most anticipated one. Sprint sensation Hima Das will be running in the preliminary round in the morning while the final will be held in the evening.Bahrain’s Salwa Naser will start as the overwhelming favourite to take the gold in the women’s quarter-mile event. She had beaten Hima comfortably in the Asian Games 400m final. She was second in world lists last year (49.08s).This Asian Championships is crucial as the gold medallist gets the automatic qualification for the World Championships. This competition is also an ideal platform to accumulate ranking points if an athlete fails to achieve the stiff entry standards prescribed by the international federation.Jinson Johnson (1500m), Tejinder Pal Singh Toor (men’s shot put) and women’s 4x400m relay team could be considered as gold medal contenders. National record holder quartermiler Muhammed Anas and his women’s counterpart Hima Das are not expected to win gold but can bag a medal.Anas was not at his best during the Federation Cup last month as he was running a few months after suffering a leg injury in an accident. Hima has not been at her best after she took a break to prepare for her exams before coming back to win the Federation Cup with a 52.88 seconds.No one has crossed 20.0m in the shot put in Asia this season except Tejinder. That makes the Asian Games champion the favourite to take the gold.Dutee, a double silver winner at the Jakarta Asian Games, is also a medal contender in women’s 100m. She will be up against the likes of Wei Yongli of China and Kazakhstan’s Olga Saffronikova, who had won a silver in 2017. Dutee had won a bronze in 2017.Also See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Eight Communities in Kings and Hants Counties Receive Infrastructure Funding

first_imgResidents of eight communities in Kings County and Shubenacadie in Hants County will soon have improved water and wastewater systems thanks to investments from the Canada-Nova Scotia Municipal Rural Infrastructure Fund. Federal and provincial funding of almost $4 million was announced today, June 28, by the governments of Canada and Nova Scotia. The municipalities will fund an additional $2 million towards the balance of the project costs. As a result of these projects, almost 2,700 households will have improved drinking water. Many residents will also have improved fire protection and water-treatment quality. The projects in Shubenacadie, New Minas, Canning and Port Williams will help those communities meet the new provincial drinking water standards. Most of the work centres on improving the quality of drinking water, and specific projects include a new reservoir, watermains and water-quality monitoring equipment. Wolfville, Kentville and Hantsport are also focused on improving the quality of drinking water. The projects include replacing watermains and sanitary sewers, as well as installing or replacing storm sewers. The Kingsport project will connect 100 households to the municipal water system, and includes a new well and the installation of watermains. “Community infrastructure, such as improving our drinking water and wastewater systems, is a priority for government,” said Jamie Muir, Minister of Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations. “These projects will help communities meet new water regulations and contribute to their quality of life, as well as protecting the environment.” “The federal government is getting things done for the residents of Kings and Hants counties by investing almost $2 million in important infrastructure projects,” said Senator Donald Oliver, on behalf of Peter MacKay, Minister of the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency. “We know that by joining forces with provincial and municipal governments, we can find creative solutions to help communities build the infrastructure they need to support a high quality of life.” The Municipal Rural Infrastructure Fund supports community infrastructure improvements, such as water, wastewater and solid-waste management. “Nova Scotia municipalities have substantial infrastructure needs, and we’re pleased the federal and provincial governments are contributing,” said Russell Walker, president of the Union of Nova Scotia Municipalities. “These projects help protect our citizens and the environment, and they’re important to the future of our communities.” Today’s investment is part of the $133-million, six-year Canada-Nova Scotia Municipal Rural Infrastructure Fund, which is administered by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations. Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation and the Union of Nova Scotia Municipalities are members of the program management committee.last_img read more

New exhibit in Manitoba commemorates tragic Metis history that needs to be

first_imgBrittany HobsonAPTN NewsA new exhibit chronicling a tragic and historic time in Metis history has opened at the Manitoba Museum in Winnipeg. Ni Kishkishin, meaning I Remember, retells the story of Ste. Madeleine, a former Metis settlement located along the Manitoba, Saskatchewan border.In 1939, nearly 300 people living in the community were displaced when provincial and municipal governments designated the land for community pastures as part of what was called the Prairie farm rehabilitation administration.During the unveiling of the exhibit Metis Elder George Fleury shared stories of his childhood.He recalled the tragic moment his family returned home from working various jobs.“Our house had been burned down while we were gone,” said Fleury. “I was only four-years-old but I remember seeing my mother crying and my father’s shoulders heaving up and down.“He was crying too.”Government came into Ste. Madeleine and burned down the homes as well as their dogs were shot dead.Fleury says he was too young to understand the full impact of what this meant for his parents.“I didn’t sense what the loss was but in their hearts they knew what had been lost,” he said.“They lost their homes, their livelihood, their dignity.”The exhibit is displayed in Michif, French and English. It includes artifacts and stories from Elders, including Fleury.All that’s left of the settlement today is a cemetery.“Ste. Madeleine is a piece of history that needs to be corrected,” said John Fleury, son of George and a minister with the Manitoba Metis Federation.The organization continues to fight with governments to have the land returned.“When you talk about reconciliation, well come on Manitoba step up to the plate and let’s do some reconciling,” said the younger Fleury.bhobson@aptn.ca@bhobs22last_img read more

10 tips to best help someone diagnosed with cancer

first_imgTHE PSYCHOLOGICAL SOCIETY of Ireland (PSI) have these 10 tips on how to best help someone diagnosed with cancer.There are over 200 different types of cancer and one in three of us will be affected during our lifetime.“Perhaps the two most important things to remember are that emotions will not follow in neat stages and that over emphasising being positive can actually be an additional burden to the person diagnosed with cancer,” advises PSI Registered Member, Dr Paul D’Alton, Head and Clinical Lead of the Department of Psycho-oncology at St. Vincent’s University Hospital.Here are the 10 tips to help cope with and respond to the diagnosis:Being ‘positive’ doesn’t always help. Trying too hard to be positive can end up making people miserable! Facing up to uncertainty and insecurity takes courage and may be painful, however can be a much more helpful way to manage the ups and down of a cancer diagnosis.Don’t be afraid to say ‘I don’t know what to say’. Learn to tolerate your own emotional discomfort. Learn to just listen. Everyone’s response to a cancer diagnosis is unique. Try to understand what it might be like to be in their shoes by simply listening and allowing them to express what they’re feeling, even if it doesn’t always make sense or seem logical.Don’t expect emotions to progress along in neat stages. This experience will unfold as a process and there will be many ups and downs where their needs change on a day-to-day (or sometimes hour-to-hour) basis.Avoid advice giving. This can be unhelpful and make people feel they should be ‘doing a better job’ at coping than they are. Advising people to keep positive and battle on is not helpful for everyone.Try not to personalise. If you’re experiencing conflict, try and remember that your partner or friend or family member may be angry at the situation and not at you personally. We tend to take our frustration out on our nearest and dearest.6. Eat well, exercise and get enough sleep. Take care of yourself. You might not have cancer, but this is difficult for you. Stress can disrupt our usual routines at a time when it is more important than ever to maintain the basics of eating well, exercising and sleep. By taking care of yourself you are in a much better position to care for others.Don’t be afraid to ask for help, and say ‘no’ when you need to. If you are supporting a loved one with cancer it’s important to know your own limits. Now is a good time to call in your favours so letting others help you and acknowledging what you can’t do will take the pressure off. Remember that resources like the Irish Cancer Society (ICS) and local support groups are there to help not only the patient but those who support him or her.Be practical. Avoid vague offers like ‘let me know if I can do anything’, and instead be specific and practical about how you might be able to help. ‘I can collect the kids on Tuesdays and Thursdays’ or ‘I can bring you to the hospital on Fridays’ are clear, solid offers that you’re more likely to be taken up on.One of the surprising ways to manage stress is by trying to stop wanting things to be different from how they are right now. We tend to cause ourselves additional suffering simply by wanting things to be different. Allowing yourself permission to be who you are in this moment is likely to be more helpful in the long term.Try to focus on today, this moment not yesterday or the future. A diagnosis like cancer propels our minds into the future or back to the past. Simply bringing attention to your breath can help. Just take one mindful breath.The tips coincide with the Irish Cancer Society’s Daffodil Day, which takes place on Friday, 22 March.For more information on these services, or for advice on any other aspect of cancer, call the National Cancer Helpline on Freefone 1800 200 700 or go to the Society’s website, www.cancer.ie.Read: New research shows brain tumours can be killed with anti-nausea drug > More: Terminal cancer patient runs marathon and wins… while pushing his daughter in a buggy >last_img read more
