1. Brancaster Staithe & Burnham Deepdale to become a 'Walkers Are Welcome' Village

We'd very much like to see Brancaster Staithe and Burnham Deepdale become a Walkers Are Welcome community -

This is something being actively encouraged by Norfolk Trails and Norfolk County Council -

I brought this up at one of our Village marketing meetings, but was hugely surprised about the rather hostile reception to the idea.  Just to clarify, this isn’t about encouraging dog walkers, which I believe the National Trust felt was a problem, it’s about showing that the Village welcomes walkers.

Personally I can’t see any negatives, as the we do welcome walkers, we just aren’t officially welcoming walkers.

We meet most of the requirements of the Walkers Are Welcome scheme already, and we are quite happy to submit the annual report required.

As we already promote the Village with the Brancaster Staithe & Burnham Deepdale Leaflet – - It would be nice to promote Walkers Are Welcome on that leaflet and the village website. All the businesses in the Village could also use the logo on their website and other marketing material.

As the Brancaster Staithe & Burnham Deepdale Leaflet now includes Brancaster businesses too, then this could be a Parish application rather than just Brancaster Staithe & Burnham Deepdale. It really depends on who signs the petition, so we can show support either in just Brancaster Staithe & Burnham Deepdale or in the whole Parish.

Thanks to those who have signed the paper petition at the marketing meeting. It
seems easier to use an online petition and ask you all to sign that instead.
It’s based on the Walkers Are Welcome Local Support Form.

We need about 50 signatures from the community (living and/or working) and any other signatures from visitors would be most welcome.

Derby County F.C. paid to have a DCFC Banner placed in the Immigration Lounge. This was erected by Airport Staff and later taken down by Airport Staff. The official reason given was that the banner was put up in error and had to be taken down as correct procedures had not been followed and that they support all cities equally.

The actual reason was that Nottingham Forest supporters complained. We feel unfairly discriminated against as Derby County supporters on the grounds that (1) it appears ok for the Airport to erect a 'Bow & Arrow' logo which alludes to Nottingham but not ok to have a paid for advertisement for Derby County. (2) the Airport which is situated in Leicestershire with a Derbyshire postcode was going to have a permanent name change to 'Nottingham East Midlands Airport' until objections forced a u-turn.

Here is the link:

This behaviour has illustrated a clear bias in favour of Nottingham such that the supporters of Derby County are adamant that unless the advertising banner is re-erected we will have no alternative but to boycott East Midlands Airport in favour of using Birmingham, or Leeds Bradford Airport wherever and whenever possible.

4. Objection to Randfontein municipality pipeline in Vleikop, Rikasrus, Dennydale, Blaauwbank

The Agricultural Holdings, Vleikop, Rikasrus, Dennydale and Blaauwbank are located on a underground aquifer. (An aquifer is an underground layer of water-bearing permeable rock, rock fractures or unconsolidated materials (gravel, sand, or silt) from which groundwater can be extracted using a water well).

The mentioned aquifer, known as the Oberholzer aquifer, provide abundant fresh water for the area for household as well as agricultural usage.

Therefore it is with concern that the residents noticed that a water pipeline is being installed in the mentioned area by Rand Water (contractor) on the instruction of Randfontein Municipality.

It is a waste to install many kilometers of water pipelines at high costs to the taxpayers and to supply expensive municipal water, which is partially imported from Lesotho, when abundant fresh groundwater is available from +- 15 meter below the surface of the mentioned properties.

The residents of the mentioned agricultural holdings can not afford to pay for unwanted, expensive municipal provided water for home usage. Neither can the high costs (and unreliability of supply) of municipal water enable residents to produce affordable food and other agricultural products. That will render the agricultural holdings' intended usage, obsolete.

The residents have not yet been consulted or informed about the pipeline.

No environmental impact assessment has been done that the residents are aware of.

The taxpayers money can be better utilized by subsidizing individual holding owners to drill boreholes into the aquifer and extract the water with solar driven water pumps.

6. Knight Andrew Jennings for exposing FIFA

The case for Andrew Jennings to receive a knighthood was clear for all to see on the PANORAMA show presented on BBC1 7th December 2015.

This is an elderly reporter in his 70's who has relentlessly endeavoured to expose football's world governing body FIFA as being run systematically as a corrupt organisation.

He has dedicated his life to exposing the criminal underbelly of FIFA in the face of personal danger to himself on numerous occasions and persevered regardless of being lambasted by the national press and other media and public figures for the past 15 years.

His work has caught the attention of not just Britain but the world so much so that the FBI are currently presiding over arrests of many of the figures who run the FIFA organisation. He does so voluntarily with a passion that is to be admired.

7. Revert CFL logo

On the new logo they have nearly eliminated the maple leaf and has a quote below stating "What we're made of". Well obviously a lot less Canadian then before not to mention the fact that the new one is trying to get a new generation of fans.

Well I have been a CFL fan for my whole life and kinda think that the NFL rules are a bit different but now I'm thinking to change loyalties because one league, at least keeps their tradition

9. McDonald's Nutrition Education Curriculum Endorsed by Maryland PTA? No Thanks!

A Washington Post article on October 29, 2015 ( revealed that the Maryland PTA web site included a letter from a registered dietitian working for McDonald’s suggesting that teachers show a 20 minute documentary about how a teacher lost weight eating exclusively at McDonald’s for six months.

This documentary is misleading for many reasons, including the fact that anyone who significantly decreases their calorie intake and starts exercising will likely lose weight, no matter where they eat.

We believe that schools are a place for unbiased education on nutrition, not propaganda from a fast food chain. In the midst of efforts to bring healthier food and fundraisers to schools nationally, which are supported by the National PTA, the inclusion of these materials on the Maryland PTA web site are a step in the wrong direction. Rather, the Maryland PTA should be supportive of efforts to remove marketing of unhealthy foods in schools as well as fundraisers that promote unhealthy foods.

14. Discontinue Random Drug Testing of Students Involved In Extracurricular Activities of Guthrie Public Schools

Guthrie Public Schools beginning in the Fall of 2015 will begin Drug Testing Student's that are involved in Extracurricular Activities. (Sports, Student Council, JROTC, and Etc.) Many believe this is a violation of our Student's rights.

Many believe that to start this testing is a Reactive, and not a Proactive approach to assisting our students cope with problems in a world that is constantly changing for better or worse.

Many Experts and Officials believe that Mandatory Drug Testing of Student's is not the correct way to solve youth drug use, as shown in these articles.

Time (A World Leader in news) -
A direct quote from the article - "According to the AAP policy statement, there’s limited evidence to suggest that drug testing programs in schools prevent kids from trying drugs. “We reviewed the studies done to take a look at this question, and while there’s evidence, there are a lot of caveats around that,” says Levy, who adds that many studies rely on self-reports and show inconsistent data."

CBS News -

A direct quote from the arcticle - "Random drug testing in schools may sound like a good way to keep kids off drugs, but there is little evidence it works, the American Academy of Pediatrics says."

The research does not lie, these test will just hurt the already fragile relationship student's may have with teachers and Guthrie Public Schools.

We ask that Guthrie Public Schools cancel the Drug Test and instead take a positive initiative to better the relationship towards it's students and better use this funding towards to D.A.R.E Program, which is shown to be successful in deterring youth drug use.

17. Familiar of Zero Seasons 2,3, & 4 Dubbed In English

I know I'm not the only person who prefers English Dubbing to the regular Japanese Versions with English Subs.

So in any case I really enjoyed The series "The Familiar of Zero" but what sucks is that only the first season was dubbed in english.

I didn't know the rest where sub only and was instantly hooked when I watched it.

So in any case i'm creating this petition to have Funimation dub the rest of the 3 seasons in English as well.

Thanks for your support.

19. NO Reckless Driving Civil Penalty unless emergency vehicles involved - Co. Code Sec 13-71‏

We are trying to petition Chesterfield's Board of Supervisors to revise the law that allows a CIVIL CHARGE of between $350 and $1,000 (IN ADDITION TO THE TRAFFIC TICKET CHARGES) for anyone who gets a Reckless Driving Ticket. The law 'as written' says these charges are allowed ONLY to cover expenses if emergency vehicles are required, BUT Chesterfield has been enforcing this civil charge for anyone who gets a reckless driving ticket, even if emergency vehicles are NOT required.

**If you read/watch the Mark Holmberg link below, he may explain it better than I do ;-) This is a state law, but Chesterfield is the only county using this law to make extra money.
Below links are Mark Holmberg's article on Chesterfield's abuse of this law AND the law as written.

§ 13-71. Reimbursement of expenses incurred in responding to DUI and other traffic accidents or incidents

Latest version.

•(a) A person convicted of violating any of the following provisions shall at the time of sentencing or in a separate civil action be liable for restitution of reasonable expenses incurred by the county or by any volunteer fire or rescue squad, or any combination thereof, when providing an appropriate emergency response to any accident or incident related to such violation or when issuing any related arrest warrant or summons. Personal liability under this section for reasonable expenses of an appropriate emergency response shall not exceed $1,000.00 in the aggregate for a particular accident, arrest or incident occurring in the county:

(1) The provisions of Code of Virginia, § 18.2-51.4, 18.2-266 or 29.1-738, as amended, or a similar county ordinance, when such operation of a motor vehicle, engine, train or watercraft while so impaired is the proximate cause of the accident or incident;

(2) The provisions of Code of Virginia, tit. 46.2, ch. 8, art. 7 (§ 46.2-852 et seq.), as amended, relating to reckless driving, when such reckless driving is the proximate cause of the accident or incident; and

(3) The provisions of Code of Virginia, § 46.2-894, as amended, relating to improperly leaving the scene of an accident.

(b) In determining "reasonable expenses", the county may bill a flat fee of $350.00 or a minute-by-minute accounting of the actual costs incurred. As used in this section "appropriate emergency response" includes all costs of providing law-enforcement, firefighting, rescue, and emergency medical services. The court may order as restitution the reasonable expenses incurred by the county for firefighting, rescue and emergency medical services.

(c) The police department shall compile a report of the reasonable expenses of the appropriate emergency response for each accident, arrest warrant, summons or incident and forward that information to the county attorney's office or the accounting department for appropriate proceedings. The fire department shall have the same reporting requirements except for accidents, arrest warrants, summonses or incidents for which restitution is sought in the underlying criminal case.

(Ord. of 12-19-01, § 1; Ord. of 8-27-03, § 1; Ord. of 7-28-04(2), § 1; Ord. of 4-27-05, § 1; Ord. of 8-26-09(1), § 1; Ord. of 7-28-10(1), § 1)

Harmination is one of six head shops based in Aberdeen - being solely targeted for closure.

We feel it is unjust to make an example of one store by expressing concerns for public safety and requesting closure- when for example you have Aberdeen Market open to all ages and home to two Head Shops.

Harmination operate a 'strictly over 18s policy and also have the right to refuse customers if they feel they have no product knowledge.

To date there has been no known incidents or complaints regarding the New premises.

25. Save our NHS before it's too late!


I wrote an article 20yrs ago ..which was printed in the Evening Times -Glasgow..
with regards to the state of the NHS. Nothing seems to have changed! If anything it's worse than ever!! Basically, I was saying that nurses were over-worked, underpaid, under-staffed while the so called 'Fat Cats' balanced the books ie tried to run the NHS as a business , forgetting about the needs of the patients & all staff concerned with their welfare.

I organised a written petition & circulated it all over Glasgow with the intent to send it to Mr Major at 10 Downing Street. Sadly, it never came to fruition as it was all leg work back then. Now we have instantaneous links with social media etc therefore we can make things happen & get results immediately.

Please sign the petition to save our NHS before it's too late! After all,
it's for the benefit of us, our children & our children's children!

The article I wrote was published in the Evening Times (Glasgow) in the column -First Person (for use by the general public to express their views on any topic)
The date of publication was Thursday, August 31st.1995 by Jean Leitch, Medical supplies Manager -Titled- Stand up and be counted over NHS.
20yrs later nothing's changed!As I said..f anything things are worse!

I qualified as a nurse in 1974 (nursed for 13yrs) & continued to be connected for over 20 yrs with the NHS.

I wrote the above mentioned article because I saw the unrest between doctors & nurses. They were in a ridiculous situation so I felt the need to put my thought in writing. AGAIN PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION....TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Thank you for your time in this matter.

28. "EXPLIQUEZ NOUS"- Petition-Centre Médico-Social (CMS) de Bamako (Mali)

Centre Médico-Social (CMS) de Bamako (Mali)

Pétition « Expliquez-nous»

Les membres adhérents de l’Association Internationale de Santé du Mali (AISM) - organe de gestion du CMS de Bamako - les ayants droit ainsi que les bénéficiaires sociaux du dit-CMS sont inquiets, s’interrogent et souhaitent avoir des explications de la part de la Tutelle du Conseil d’administration du CMS.

Constatant que :

 Une structure du CMS (le laboratoire) est fermée aux patients depuis le 7 mai 2015,
 Les prestations paramédicales du CMS sont ainsi réduites, au détriment des adhérents et autres bénéficiaires,
 Aucune information explicative préalable n’a été donnée à ce sujet à quiconque, ni aux adhérents ni à la préposée en charge de cette structure.
Considérant que :
 Le CMS et son fonctionnement constitue un acquis majeur pour la communauté,
 Aucune mesure ne justifie ni la forme ni les conditions dans lesquelles a eu lieu cette fermeture,
 Depuis qu’existe le CMS, tous les médecins expatriés français qui se sont succédé au CMS ainsi que les médecins - conseils qui se sont succédé à l’Ambassade de France, n’ont jamais, à notre connaissance, exprimé la moindre crainte, le moindre doute quant à la qualité des services rendus par cette structure médicale,
 Il est impossible qu’en plus de 20 ans, Ambassadeurs et Médecins successifs aient pu fermer les yeux sur des risques éventuels mettant en danger la vie de nos compatriotes.

S’inquiétant de ce que :

 Cette fermeture précipitée - et jusqu’à présent injustifiée à nos yeux - n’entraîne une perte de revenus pour le CMS et une baisse notoire de sa patientèle,
 La pérennité du CMS puisse être mise en danger,
 L’emploi du personnel local puisse être menacé,
 Les élus des Français du Mali (Conseillers consulaires et Conseiller élu à l’AFE) et les Présidents des Associations représentatives des Français de l’étranger (FDM-ADFE et UFE) n’aient pas été associés dès le début, à la réflexion sur le CMS.

Dénoncent :

1. Le caractère brutal de cet acte imposé par la Tutelle,
2. L’ignorance dans laquelle est tenue la communauté française des conclusions de la mission d’évaluation venue de Paris à la demande de la Tutelle,
3. Le manque de considération et de respect dus à des personnes qui ont contribué à la survie du CMS, quels que soient les événements (à titre d’exemples : départ du médecin-chef en 2007, licenciement économique de plusieurs employés de l’Ambassade affectés au CMS, coup d’état de 2012 et ses conséquences, etc.),
4. Une volonté de démanteler le CMS,
5. Le non-respect des organes de gestion du CMS.

Demandent à la Tutelle et à l’AISM

La tenue d’une Assemblée générale extraordinaire au cours de laquelle seront données des informations précises sur le présent et l’avenir du CMS.

En réfèrent aux Elus, représentants des Français à l’étranger

 Les Conseillers consulaires élus de la circonscription de Bamako
 Les Conseillers à l’Assemblée des Français de l’Etranger (AFE), élus de la circonscription d’Afrique Occidentale

29. Canadians Should Have a Canadian Birth Certificate

In many countries birth certificates are issued by the federal government of the country someone was born in. In Canada birth certificates are issued by the provincial/territorial government where someone is born.

There is no border separating Canadian provinces/territories from each other. Someone with a birth certificate from one province/territory can move to another province/territory whenever they want because they are still in the country, while someone with a birth certificate from one country can't just move to another country without applying and being accepted in.

Canada is one country, not 13 separate countries. Why should each province/territory have separate birth certificates if the people with those birth certificates are all from the same country and can move around freely in that country? There are 13 provincial/territorial governments separately doing the same thing.

Birth certificates are proof of what country a person was born in, so they should be issued by the federal government of that country.

30. The Fair Play Cricket Lovers' Right to Watch Pietersen Play for England

As a collective, we Cricket Lovers put a lot back in to our game. Whether we are watching, playing, coaching, talking about it, buying equipment and so on, we put a lot of ourselves in to the pursuit. Cricket teaches you a lot about yourself, other people and about fair play.

Kevin Pietersen is massively reported on in either glowing or derogatory terms. This petition has got nothing to do with that. It is about allowing people to flourish and about setting the right example. I don’t believe that the ECB are setting a good example, by preventing him from playing. Nor do I think that we supporters of the game of cricket deserve to be denied the chance to watch one of the best cricketing entertainers in the world play at the highest level this summer. As the cricketing public they serve, I think that the ECB owe it to us to get over themselves and select Kevin for cricketing reasons.

If you agree with this, then please sign our online petition. We can have our voices united and make ECB listen.

Please share this and help it gain momentum.

Thank you in advance.

Another Cricket Lover.
