A SEVEN-YEAR-OLD Scots schoolgirl will be forced to move 7500 miles to the other side of the world because her mum is being deported.
Millie Canales, who was born in the UK and has lived in Scotland since she was a baby, is being sent to South America.
The P3 pupil, who speaks with a broad Scots accent, now faces a life of poverty in an earthquake zone in Chile with her pregnant mum Francisca.
Millie has only made two short trips to Chile and speaks no Spanish, so will be unable to communicate with anyone there.
She has known no other life apart from her semi-detached home in Stirling and her circle of friends at the city’s Braehead Primary School.
Millie said yesterday: “If I lose all my friends, I’ll be very sad. That is what the baddies want to do.”
Francisca, 27, who first came to the UK as a student when she was 16, said of her daughter, whose full name is Millaray: “She would be lost if we had to go to Chile now.
“She is like any other wee Scots girl, with a Scots accent and Scots friends.
“She has only been to Chile twice on holiday to see her gran and cannot read or write Spanish.”
Francisca added: “Scotland is my home, and my daughter has known no other home, but I feel everything I’m trying to do for my family is being sabotaged at every turn.
“I’ve never tried to hide from the UK Border Agency. I’ve always had the right visas and always kept them informed.
“I’ve always worked, paid my taxes and I’ve always tried to do the right thing for my family.
“The Human Rights Act states that all children are a priority and should always be protected.”
The UK Border Agency’s bombshell means Millie will be forced to live with her mum and grandmum in a cramped flat in the Chilean city of Talca, which was virtually destroyed by a massive earthquake in 2010.
The family’s plight is made even worse by the fact that Francisca is five months pregnant.
Francisca was first told to leave the UK when she applied to extend her visa in June last year.
The Home Office based their decision on the fact that she was no longer living with Millie’s father, a Spanish national she met in the UK and who now plays no role in her daughter’s life.
Francisca claims she was given only days to quit the country but she then applied for permanent residence based on human rights laws.
This application was rejected in February and Millie now knows her fate and is terrified of losing her pals.
She said: “I don’t want to live in Chile because it is so far away.
“This is like goodies and baddies. We are the goodies but the baddies won’t put a stamp on my passport or my mum’s passport.”
Like most girls her age, Millie’s loves princesses. She’s got posters of princesses plastered over her bedroom walls and loves the book Princess Smartypants.
She also enjoys school, where her favourite subject is history and her favourite teacher is Mrs Muir.
Heartbroken Francisca said: “We didn’t plan this situation, it just happened.
“Millie was born in the UK, for goodness sake. We’ve not tried to bend the rules or cheat. We’ve always been honest and open.”
The UK Border Agency’s ruling that Francisca is in Scotland without permission has led to her being fired from her £17,500-a-year job in the insurance industry.
It means her family also face a financial struggle in the run-up to her baby’s birth.
Their last hope is an appeal tribunal hearing, due to be held on June 3.
Francisca said: “If I lose, I’ll need to return to live with my mum in Chile.
“I’ll have no choice but to take Millaray with me. That will be devastating.
“Chile is a foreign country to her, and I’ve not lived there since I was 16.”
It's time for Scott Prince to go, find us a new half back!
The game Final Fantasy 7 was one of the top selling games of its time. Since the creation, the game has been played and replayed. It was even considered to be in the top 10 games of its time.
Even today, people still play this game, in the desperate hope that a newer and better version be made.
In many pqs in the game (especially GSPQ and bosses), i have disconnected many times and my computer says "there was an error with hackshield." I cant remember exactly at this very moment, but it was along the lines of that.
This DC issue is getting very problematic for higher levels with Windows 7 and Vista. I claim no expert knowledge in programming or patching but ever since HackShield was implemented, users with Win7/Vista have been having more and more issues with DCing at party boss runs. People have hence found methods to not DC - ie alt-tabbing, changing resolution before and after different phases of the particular boss, restarting the computer before the run - all very tedious things to do just to fight a single boss.
Then came the Evan patch which made things worse, and then with this last Dual Blade patch it is nearly impossible not to DC even while using the aforementioned methods. There are hundreds, if not thousands of maplers who are getting fed up with these issues. When people write tickets or try to raise this issue, your representatives say it is our computers and that nothing can be done on your end to fix these issues.
We maplers love and enjoy most of the new content you bring us with each patch but I strongly believe that I speak for the majority when I say that there comes a time when fixing the in-game glitches should be prioritised over new content and events. There have been false-autobans (especially around the Haunted House in Crimsonwood), DC hackings (spouse chat DC seems to be the new and most prevalent method at this time), lag issues, the recent meso dupling exploit in which innocent maplers were falsely put on "hell ban" and lost their hard earned mesos, and countless many more bugs and glitches.
Please let our words not fall on deaf ears. We simply want to enjoy this game without so many problems in the way of our daily mapling. There ARE serious issues with Win7/Vista users disconnecting at high level boss runs. These are not random cases of 1 or 2 maplers with low-grade computers. Most of us have specs that far exceed what is necessary to play a simple 2D game. Fix these issues please, Nexon.
I ask all of those who are experiencing these same difficulties to join me and let our voices be heard by the people at Nexon. These glitches are becoming intolerable and down-right annoying. Please fix them Nexon, and thank you beforehand.
In addition to my Zakum run efforts, I have also attended a Horntail run recently, with the original poster. The first preliminary head went smoothly; I changed quality twice, it died, and I progressed to the second preliminary head. Then, about fifteen seconds in, I was booted off the exact same way that I was disconnected off zak. Gone. Poof. Nada.
(Add no, I did not press alt + f4. Alt is my torpedo button which I rarely ever use, if at all, at bosses. Much less f4, although maybe it would be suitable after I disconnected.)
In addition to these disconnecting issues, I have been lagging every fifteen seconds as soon as I attack, as many forum users have also mentioned. For most, this is hardly an issue- a one second lag out of 15 when training giving less-than-optimal exp, or entering the PIC code incorrectly. However, the aforementioned issues the least of my problems. Ever since the Dual Blade patch (although people have experienced it as early as the release of the Evan patch), I have been unable to even use my Rapid Fire skill. I know I am not alone - I know several bowmasters who not only have stopped training due to this, but gave up bossing altogether. Normally, this is not too bad for a corsair, but this fifteen second lag does not only apply when I use rapid fire, but battleship cannon as well.
So, what am I getting at? I have already mentioned two rather insignificant problems that this lag created, but there is more.
Enter the Parlor, where happy gangsters and of course, Anego reside. And now, introducing your anego fanatic, me.
Normally at anego, I would pin her to the wall on the left easily by means of rapid firing; a quick and simple process. As of the late, the moment I use rapid fire, I'm unable to move. So I attempt at the obvious solution:pinning with battleship cannon. This is where the problem begins. Yes, I can pin her. However, every 15 seconds, I lag, causing anego to suddenly rush up to me. For night lords, due to the faster casting time of triple throw compared to battleship cannon, this is bearable. Even for me, most of the time, say a good 60%, I can hit her again before the lag ends, thus avoiding getting hit with her magic attacks. The other 40% of the time, I will get hit with a nasty 5.3k magic attack. I consider myself lucky that I can tank a 5k hit now (excellently timed ap reset giveaway, Nexon), but forget not that anego also hosts her (in)famous nasty 18k slap. Guess who's been on the receiving line of that slap six times now? Me. At 162, 10% is an excruciatingly large amount of exp about 25m. I don't even want to think about how slow it will be later, but at the moment, each death is 10%. If these deaths weren't bad enough, each anego consumes a large amount of pots; much, much more than before, to the point that I'm spending about six times as many pots per anego (I use ginger ales, which heal hp and mp simultaneously). I have leveled from 125 - 162 completely off from this boss (aside from 2 levels), and it is a shame that I can barely even /train/ anymore because of this glitch.
To the unfortunate bowmasters who can't even use hurricane... I can only say that I sympathize completely for you.
Nexon, please fix these issues. Although it is generally the higher leveled community that suffers from these two issues (which means much less people), these issues are unavoidable. Someday, that level 32 fighter might become a 135 hero, only to find out he can't survive zakum, just because he disconnects. Or the 118 ranger who's motivation to level is hurricane, only to realize he can barely use it.

In 1996, one of the best family shows yet entered the wotld of telivision. This was 7th Heaven. 7th Heaven has been on the air for a decade now, and it is still one of the highest rating shows on the WB.
Viewers are devistated to hear that the 10th season will be the show's last season. 7th Heaven has taught so many kids so many lessons and the consequences that come with their actions.
So, this is why the "Keep 7th Heaven on the Air" petition has started. So please take the time to sign!
