Naturalist?

Naturalist

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Google Announced 150m Extension to Data Centre

Expansion to create 40 permanent roles and 400 temporary construction jobs.

Google has announced a €150m extension to its second data centre in Grange Castle in West Dublin. The building of this new facility will create 400 temporary construction jobs and around 40 permanent roles will be created by Google in the data centre.

This latest move will bring to €1bn the amount of money invested by Google in Ireland since 2003.

Ireland has benefitted greatly from Google’s decision to locate here:

  • Between 2011 and 2017 Google's data centres have added €350m to the economy through construction and operations and €400m to GDP
  • 4,900 jobs are also directly and indirectly supported by the centres.
  • Google employs over 7,000 people in Ireland.

 

Google says its Irish data centres are designed to be highly energy-efficient, with the data centre here in Dublin using advanced air-cooling technologies, taking advantage of the country's temperate climate to regulate the temperature of the servers.  

Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys commented on Google’s announcement "This €150m data centre expansion brings the company's total investment in its Irish data centres alone to €500m, and its capital expenditure to almost €1bn. . . There is no denying that this is a considerable vote of confidence in Ireland as a place to do business."
