1. SkyB or Virgin should support Caribbean culture in their programming

SkyB is a UK digital TV service provider. They provide channels for most cultures but Jamaica is not listed. Look how many Caribbean people live in the UK.

I am a sky user myself. Sometimes I wonder if Sky would show one channel from the Caribbean so people would support them more.

2. Get us back to Tassie

Many Tasmanians have been forced to look for and be employed interstate, especially in mining and civil construction.

In order for these men and women to return home on the same day as they leave designated work sites there must be flights available from Melbourne after 7:30 pm daily, to make connections. This has been available until recently and we are asking for these flights to be reinstated.

Whilst the people leave the state to find employment and/or better paid employment they are bringing this money back into Tasmania to be spent locally. Should they no longer be able to return to Tasmania on the same day, it will force more people into relocating interstate as it will simply no longer be viable to be "Fly in Fly out" please sign the petition to keep flights coming in to Tasmania at reasonable times and prices so that not only can these people enjoy a reasonable amount of time with their families, but so we don't push them into moving interstate.

Tasmania is not a second class state and should not be forced into becoming one. Please sign the petition.

3. Airlines should stop discriminating against the tall

Airlines are in the main reducing the pitch between seats and then asking us to pay for more legroom.

Why should the vertically challenged be able to purchase a seat with more legroom whilst those who have longer legs and need the space have to squeeze into a smaller leg space.

Not everyone can afford the luxury of travelling premium economy, business or first and as a result have to suffer sore knees as the result.

4. Stop Virgin Media's Price Increase

Virgin Media have advertised "FREE" double speeds for their broadband customers which will roll out over the next 18 months across the country.

Coincidentally their customers are receiving emails/letters with proposed price increases to be introduced in April 2012 averaging more than £25 a year.

5. Virgin Steam P2P

Virgin Media National are "Shaping" the transmissions of downloads from Steam as if it was Peer 2 Peer and therefore users are getting ridiculously slow download rates and pings. This is and unfair and unjust clarification. Steam is a legitimate program which downloads from direct connections to a server, not Peer2Peer. Typical speeds give you 1GB per hour when most users on other similar platforms like Origin get up to 5GB per hour.

Virgin have also tried to make us believe it is Steam but they have only started saying this after we found out it was them "Traffic Shaping" connections to Steam.

They have on numerous occasions on the phone and their own forums stated that it is classed as P2P. Now a team leader on the phone described how it is wrongly classified but there is nothing he can do. This is not the level of service we pay for.

6. Plus de titres de Jonas sur nos radios françaises et chaines musicales!

Parce que les fans français sont convaincus de son potentiel musical et de sa réussite en tant qu'artiste solo! Son nouvel album FastLife mérite d'être écouté par tous!

French fans are convinced of his musical potential and his success as a solo artist! Fastlife, his new album worth to be listening by all!...

7. Bring GOLD to Freeview

I am starting this petition to try and get the TV channel GOLD (formerly UK Gold, UKTV Gold and G.O.L.D.) to join Freeview and be available to Freeview viewers.

The channel predominantly shows classic British comedies like Only Fools and Horses, Blackadder, One Foot in the Grave and Fawlty Towers for the vast majority of the day.

The channel is currently available only on Sky, Virgin Media and TalkTalk TV.

I feel it would be a great advantage to people who have Freeview, and who do not want to spend a lot of money on buying Sky/Virgin etc. Many people are fond of these old sitcoms.

Thank you and please sign.

8. Stop Cell Towers in Residential Areas

An application to the city of Windham, NH has been submitted to construct a 150 foot Cell Tower in a residential neighborhood.

The perceived reduction in property values, as well as health concerns to just children living and playing near the tower need to be reviewed.

Please join us in our fight against Verizon Wireless and the Land Owner constructing intrusive towers that will forever change the landscape of Windham, NH.

9. Please Never Play Heidi Montag Again

At Virgin Radio we are proudly Canadian.

We believe everyone deserves a chance, innocent til proven guilty and all that!

So we're gonna play Heidi Montag's song Body Language until we get 500 names on our "Please Never Play Heidi Montag Again" online petition. Until then...enjoy!

11. Declaration Condemning Child Rape

The country of South Africa has gained the dubious distinction of becoming "the rape capital of the world". The savage rape and victimization of children is an everyday occurence.

Children as young as just a few months have been gang-raped by groups of men that very often include a relative; one child was raped by a group of men that included her own grandfather.

The pandemic spread of HIV and AIDS in these countries coupled with the Virgin Sex Myth that many believe has led many AIDS infected men to seek to have sex with a virgin, the younger the better, in order to be "healed" of their disease. Other men, while not believing this myth, seek to have sex with virgins in order to avoid contracting AIDS from older, infected women.

As global citizens we must put an end to the barbaric and senseless crimes against women and children.

12. Stop Britney Spears from Covering Justify my Love and Like a Virgin in her New Tour

This petition will hopefully ensure that Britney Spears will not go anywhere near any Madonna classics on her new tour.

13. Petition Virgin America for not selling/touring OOMPH! in the USA

This is a petition against Virgin (the record label) America for refusing to sell OOMPH! cds here or even let them tour here. They have shown us no feedback as to WHY they won't give them a chance in USA and OOMPH! fans, unite and take over, we need to be heard by Virgin America!!

14. Lead The Way

By now you should have listened to the available audio clips of Mariah's two new, amazing ballads - Lead The Way and Never Too Far - which will feature on her upcoming album/soundtrack, Glitter.

As you might know, Mariah is having a hard time deciding which of these two great songs should be her second single.

This petition is to give the vote to Lead The Way. Not that Never Too Far isn't astounding in it's own right, but if you also feel that Lead The Way would be more successful on radio and commercially all around the world, then we need your signature on this petition.

Once enough signatures have been collected, they will be passed on to Mariah Carey and Virgin Records.

Mariah Buzz.
