Complaints against Canadian telecom TV providers soar 57 in 201718 report

first_imgThere has been a dramatic increase in the number of complaints raised against Canada’s telecommunications providers, according to an annual tally released Tuesday by the private-sector body assigned to resolve disputes brought by customers who haven’t been able to get satisfaction directly from their provider.The 14,272 complaints raised by Canadian telecom and TV customers over the 2017-18 period was up 57 per cent from the previous year, while the total number of issues they raised rose 67 per cent to 30,734, the Commission for Complaints for Telecom-Television Services says in its report for the 12 months from Aug. 1, 2017 to July 31, 2018.“With the addition of TV complaints to our mandate in September of 2017, we did anticipate an increase — but not the 57 per cent that we received,” CCTS commissioner Howard Maker said in the report.But, Maker added, fewer than five per cent of the complaints related to TV alone.“The increase was in the same types of issues that Canadians have complained about historically: sales transactions that go wrong, service that doesn’t work as expected, and billing problems.”The CCTS is a decade-old independent industry-funded body that works under a mandate from Canada’s federal regulator.The dispute-resolution body was originally responsible for monitoring compliance with Canada’s wireless code, which was updated last year by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, effective Dec. 1, 2017.Wireless services continued to have the biggest number of identified issues by far, with 12,757 in 2017-18, up 49 per cent from last year’s tally.But issues with internet service rose even more quickly to 8,987, up 56 per cent.Billing and contract disputes continued to be the two biggest issues identified in the CCTS report, regardless of type of service. Bell Canada also continued to receive the biggest number of complaints, 4,734 or 33.2 per cent of the total — not counting 847 directed at its Virgin Mobile flanker brand or its Bell Aliant (229) and Bell MTS (135) regional affiliates.Similarly Rogers received the second-largest number of complaints, 1,449 or 10.2 per cent of the total, followed by Telus at No. 3 with 944 or 6.6 per cent of the total, not counting their flanker brands.But relative newcomer Freedom Mobile placed fourth in the tally, after the number of complaints rose 185.3 per cent to 850.Freedom’s corporate parent Shaw also saw complaints against it more than double, as did Videotron — Quebecor’s telecom division — Cogeco Connexion, Eastlink and TekSavvy, but the totals remained far behind the three national wireless carriers.The CCTS says 10,214 or 71.6 per cent of the complaints it received were resolved without having to move to a higher level of intervention that included an investigation. A further 1,935 of the complaints were resolved after an investigation and 1,068 complaints were closed with or without an investigation for a variety of reasonsIn 32.5 per cent of the closed complaints, the CCTS decided that a further investigation wasn’t warranted and 30.1 per cent were closed because the customer didn’t co-operate. A further 18.8 per cent were closed because the CCTS decided the service provider’s offer was reasonable.  Companies in this story: (TSX:BCE, TSX:RCI.B, TSX:T, TSX:SJR.B, TSX:QBR.B, TSX:CCA) David Paddon, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

US Embassy protests blocking of demonstrators

“All Sri Lankans should enjoy the same rights and live in dignity, sharing a democratic, secure, and prosperous future,” the US Embassy statement said.The police blocked a group of people heading to Colombo from the north late last night to take part in a demonstration over the disappeared, Tamil politician Mano Ganeshan said.He told the Colombo Gazette that some 10 bus loads of people mainly from Vavuniya and Mannar, which were preparing to leave Vavuniya today, were blocked by the police. The LLRC recommends thorough investigations into disappearances as well an establishment of a mechanism to address cases of the missing and detained.The US Embassy says since last year’s UNHRC resolution the United States has grown increasingly concerned by the lack of progress on these issues, as well as backsliding on other important areas of fundamental democratic rights. The Embassy also said that the United States is constructively working with international partners to support these basic freedoms through the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) resolution in Geneva. Ganeshan said that the police had warned the people that there was information the buses may come under attack when heading to Colombo. (Colombo Gazette) “We continue to urge the Government of Sri Lanka to follow through on its own commitments to its people by implementing recommendations made in their Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) Report;” the Embassy said. The US Embassy in Colombo, in a strongly worded statement, has hit out at the government for preventing hundreds of people from the north from heading to Colombo today to take part in a demonstration calling for information about their disappeared family members,The Embassy called on the Sri Lankan authorities to allow free movement of these citizens as the right to freely express opinions is universal and protected under Sri Lankan and international law.

Survey finds public divided on key issues

According to the latest ‘Democracy in Post War Sri Lanka’ survey conducted by Social Indicator, the survey research unit of the Centre for Policy Alternatives, divisions between people’s opinions on key issues still persist.On the topic of a credible mechanism look into accountability for what happened during the last stages of the war, 42.6% of Sri Lankans stated that there should be such a mechanism, while 36.3% said no. Among the 32.2% from the Sinhala community who are in favour of such a mechanism, majority (57.8%) said that it should be a mechanism that was exclusively domestic while 34% said that it should be a combination of both domestic and international. Conducted in the 25 districts of the country, the 2015 survey captured the opinion of 1987 Sri Lankans from the four main ethnic groups. The selection of respondents was random across the country except in a few areas in the Northern Province where access was difficult. Fieldwork was conducted in March 2015. (Colombo Gazette) There has been an increase in the trust that Sri Lankans have for the Army, as 44.2% in 2015 stated that they have a great deal of trust in comparison to the 33.7% in 2014. The Tamil community has the least amount trust in the Army with 52% stating that they have no trust, followed by the Up Country Tamil with 47%.There has been a notable change in opinion among Sri Lankans when it comes to the Election Commission. 17.2% said that they have a great deal of trust and 45.1% said some trust in the Election Commission, an increase when compared to 2014, where only 7.6% had a great deal of trust and 31% said some trust.When comes to the media landscape under President Sirisena’s administration, 51.7% of Sri Lankans agree (with 12.7% strongly agreeing) that the media is completely free to criticise the Government as they wish. This is a noteworthy increase when compared to the previous years – 42% in 2011, 42.5% in 2013 and 39.2% in 2014. Sri Lankans are divided on whether the National anthem should be sung in Sinhala and Tamil. 29.3% of Sri Lankans strongly agree that it should be sung in both languages while 32.1% strongly disagree. Majority from the Tamil, Up Country Tamil and Muslim communities say that it should be sung in both languages, while only 13.4% from the Sinhalese community state the same. The Tamil community has the least amount of faith in an exclusively domestic mechanism with only 7% in favour of one. 44.9% said it should be an exclusively international one and 35.5% said a combination of the two. With regard to the 2015 Presidential Election, around 55% of Sri Lankans agree with the submission that President Sirisena owes his victory to the minority vote, whilst 31.8% do not. From an ethnic perspective, 90.6% from the Tamil community, 85.5% from the Up Country Tamil community, 85.2% from the Muslim community and 44.9% from the Sinhalese community are of the opinion that President Sirisena owes his victory to the minority vote.Majority of Sri Lankans (73.8%) believe that their vote has an impact on the outcome of an election, a notable increase from 2014 (59.5%). When asked of how free people feel in expressing their opinion on politics, irrespective of where they are and who they are with, 46.6% believe that they are completely free. This is an increase in comparison to 2013 (35.4%) and 2014 (31.2%). Almost 80% of Sri Lankans believe that they have the freedom to choose who to vote for without feeling pressured, a slight increase from 74.4% in 2013. ‘Democracy in post-war Sri Lanka’ sought to record public perspectives on democracy in Sri Lanka today and the findings are presented under four key sections – The New Government, Security and Freedom, Trust in Institutions and Media in Sri Lanka. The first wave was conducted in 2011 and the second wave in 2013 and the third in 2014. read more

UN would support any inquiry into alleged mass graves in Afghanistan spokesman

“By all means, yes, we would be prepared to support [an investigation] and help ourselves and also others who would have the expertise on it,” spokesman Manoel de Almeida e Silva told a press briefing in Kabul.The spokesman reiterated that it would be ideal to protect the gravesite at Dasht-e-Leily, as recommended by the country’s Independent Human Rights Commission. “We also think that the site should be protected,” he said. “The conditions for that have not been possible.” In the meantime, the UN Mission will send people to the area to visit the site periodically.Meanwhile, Mr. de Almeida e Silva said that the disarmament process that was to have begun on Monday in Gosfandi, Sar-i-Pul Province, has been halted, with the factions in that area working to find a mutually acceptable solution.A UNAMA political officer had travelled to Gosfandi following factional fighting last week that left eight people dead, but left the area this morning with the process of disarming combatants unresolved. read more

Jet owned by Elvis auctioned after sitting 35 years

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – A private jet once owned by Elvis Presley has been auctioned after sitting on a runway in New Mexico for 35 years.The plane sold for $430,000 on Saturday at an Agoura Hills, California, event featuring celebrity memorabilia, GWS Auctions Inc. said.The buyer was not disclosed in the sold note posted on the firm’s website, and auctioneer Brigitte Kruse said she could not immediate release information about the buyer or the buyer’s plans for the plane.The auction house says Elvis designed the interior that has gold-tone woodwork, red velvet seats and red shag carpet. But the red 1962 Lockheed Jetstar has no engine and needs a restoration of its cockpit.The 1962 red Lockheed JetStar was owned by Elvis and his father, Vernon Presley, says.It has been privately owned for 35 years and sitting on a tarmac in Roswell, New Mexico.Photos of the plane show the exterior in need of restoration and seats of the cockpit torn.A previous owner of the private jet disputed the auction house’s claim the king of rock ‘n’ roll designed its red velvet interior.Roy McKay told KOB-TV in Albuquerque ( on Tuesday he designed the interior himself. McKay said that when he purchased the red 1962 Lockheed Jetstar, it had a two-toned grey interior and “kind of looked like a casket.”But then-GWS spokesman Carl Carter told The Associated Press the auction house is confident Elvis designed the interior, which photos show has red velvet seats and red shag carpet.Federal Aviation Administration records show no interior changes were ever made to the jet, Carter said.Presley was born in Tupelo on Jan. 8, 1935, and moved to Memphis with his parents at age 13. He became a leading figure in the fledgling rockabilly scene by covering songs originally performed by African-American artists like Big Mama Thornton (“Hound Dog”) and Arthur Crudup (“That’s All Right”).His provocative dancing and hit records turned him into one of the 20th century’s most recognizable icons. Historians say his music also helped usher in the fall of racial segregation.Elvis was 42 when he died on Aug. 16, 1977, in Memphis.

Eighteen years after the attacks people are dying from 911 cancers

first_img The Twin Towers Tribute In Light art installation ahead of today’s anniversary. Wed 6:21 AM JACQUELIN FEBRILLET WAS 26 years old on 11 September 2001 when jihadist hijackers flew two passenger jets into the World Trade Center in New York just two blocks from where she worked.Fifteen years after the attacks that day, Febrillet, by then a mother of three, was diagnosed with metastatic cancer. The likely cause: a cloud of toxic ash that engulfed her.“I was there (on) 9/11… For years I have been working down there every day since 9/11. We were never told that something could happen,” she says.Unlike Febrillet, Richard Fahrer, then 19, wasn’t in the area on 9/11, but he regularly worked as a land surveyor between 2001 and 2003 in south Manhattan, where the Twin Towers came crashing down.Eighteen months ago, the young father, now 37, was diagnosed with aggressive colon cancer — a disease that usually affects older men and which there is no history of in his family.Febrillet and Fahrer represent a growing category of patient who were living or working close to the World Trade Center in the wake of the attacks, which killed almost 3,000 people.They were not among the thousands of emergency personnel who rushed to the site or who spent months clearing debris at Ground Zero, but their health is being similarly affected.On the 18th anniversary of the attacks, New York continues to count the number of people who have developed cancer or other serious illnesses related to the toxic cloud that hovered over Manhattan for several weeks.Such is the number of people affected, the 9/11 Memorial has built a section that is dedicated to those who died as a result of conditions in the years after the attacks. ‘People are dying’The 9/11 attacks released unprecedented amounts of chemicals into the air, including dioxins, asbestos and other carcinogenic substances.Firefighters, other first responders and volunteers who helped with the months-long clean-up were the first to be affected. Studies found they faced an increased risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease.Ten thousand of them have been diagnosed with cancer by the World Trade Center Health Program, a federal treatment program helping survivors. Norma Molina leaves flowers next to the name of her boyfriend, firefighter Robert Edward Evans, who died on 9/11. Source: Mark LennihanAt the end of June this year, 21,000 people not considered first responders were also in the program — twice as many as in June 2016. Of these, almost 4,000 have cancer, the most common being prostate, breast and skin.Febrillet, now 44, is one of them. She recalls that the message at the time was to get the city back to normal as quickly as possible.“People were just going about their business a few days later. But look at what happened a few years later, people are dying,” says Febrillet, who also lived close to Ground Zero.Fahrer, too, laments that city officials did not do more to protect residents and office staff in the vicinity.“My wife asks me, ‘Did terrorists cause your cancer?’ I can’t say 100%, but I do know there could have been better efforts to limit the exposure of healthy adults from entering into the disaster area,” he says.Compensation fundHealth experts say it is impossible to pinpoint exactly the cause of cancer in every patient, but note that there is a clear correlation between the rate and exposure to toxic debris.Several studies have shown that the cancer rate “has increased between 10 and 30%” among people who were exposed compared to those who weren’t, according to David Prezant, New York fire department chief medical officer.The rate is expected to increase further, he said, as exposed people get older. The risk of cancer increases with age and some cancers, including lung, can take 20 to 30 years to develop, Prezant added. The granite slabs at the memorial site remember those who have died from illnesses related to the 9/11 attacks. Source: Mary AltafferIt is because of this that President Donald Trump signed a bill in July that extends a deadline for victims to file claims for compensation from December 2020 to 2090.The Victim Compensation Fund will be regularly topped up after exhausting its initial budget of $7.3 billion. The average compensation per patient is $240,000  (€217,000), or $682,000 (€617,000) for a deceased person.Lawyer Matthew Baione, who represents Fahrer and Febrillet in their pursuit of claims, said the extension recognised that it was appropriate to cover someone “who was a baby during the attacks for the rest of their life.”“We have lost so many people, so many friends are sick,” says Febrillet“You get to a point where you are not asking, ‘Have you seen so and so, I wonder how she is doing, is she retired?’“Instead you are asking, ‘So how is the surgery, how is the treatment going?’ We are so young, this shouldn’t be happening.”© – AFP 2019 The Twin Towers Tribute In Light art installation ahead of today’s anniversary. 86 Comments Short URL Share122 Tweet Email4 51,539 Views Wednesday 11 Sep 2019, 6:21 AM Eighteen years after the attacks, people are dying from 9/11 cancers The 9/11 attacks released unprecedented amounts of chemicals into the air.

Inaugural CrossIsland Run for Local Government

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, October 11, 2017 – Kingston – The inaugural Cross-Island Run got under way today (October 10) at Jamaica House to launch Local Government and Community Month, observed annually in November.   The run will last until October 29, with more than 200 runners from several youth groups trekking across the island delivering messages from the Governor-General, the Prime Minister, the Minister of Local Government and Community Development, the Leader of the Opposition and the Association of Local Government Authorities of Jamaica (ALGAJ) to the Mayors in the parish capitals.Morant Bay New Testament Church in St. Thomas will be the end of the journey on October 29, at which time the messages will be read at a National Church Service.   Additionally, the messages will also be read at several parish church services as part of the activities being staged by the local authorities throughout the month of November.Among the activities to be staged during the month are the robing of the 2017/18 Youth Mayors and Councillors representing the various parish council divisions, renovation of the Kingsvale Police Station in Hanover, and disaster preparedness town hall meetings in communities across the country.In his remarks at Jamaica House, Local Government and Community Development Minister, Hon.

Earlier in June, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki apologized for hurting the LGBTQ community with the decision not to take down the channel of a prominent user who had made homophobic remarks about a gay journalist. “If we took down that content, there would be so [much] other content we’d need to take down,” Wojcicki said. “We don’t want to be knee-jerk.”   In a statement, SF Pride said it wouldn’t remove Google from the parade.  “Google and YouTube can and must do more to elevate and protect the voices of LGBTQ+ creators on their platforms, and we’ve found that Google has been willing to listen to this criticism and is working to develop appropriate policies,” the statement said. The group also said Google has given benefits to same-sex partners and transgender employees, as well as participated in public advocacy for the LGBTQ community.  In response, the employees took to Twitter (via @NoPrideForGoog) to say although SF Pride rejected the request, they will keep fighting. They also said they’d racked up 129 signatures within 48 hours.  Comments Google employees have signed a petition about the company’s sponsorship of San Francisco Pride festivities.  Future Publishing/Getty Google employees don’t want Google sponsoring San Fransisco Pride festivities. In a letter and petition to the board of directors of San Fransisco Pride, posted to Medium on Wednesday, a group of Google employees said the company hasn’t improved its policies when it comes to the treatment of “LGBTQ+ persons, the depiction of LGBTQ+ persons, and harassment and hate speech directed at LGBTQ+ persons, on YouTube and other Google products.” As such, letting Google sponsor Pride would be painting the company in “a rainbow veneer of support,” the employees said in the letter. They asked the Pride board to revoke Google’s sponsorship of Pride 2019 and exclude it from the San Francisco Pride Parade on June 30. “Google has marched in the San Francisco Pride Parade for more than a decade and we are excited to continue the tradition this weekend. We are grateful for SF Pride’s partnership and leadership,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement.

Waiting periods reduce deaths from guns study suggests

first_img Citation: Waiting periods reduce deaths from guns, study suggests (2017, October 17) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Explore further (—A trio of researchers with Harvard Business School has found evidence that they claim shows gun deaths decline when states enact waiting period laws. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Michael Luca, Deepak Malhotra and Christopher Poliquin describe their study and discuss their results. More information: Michael Luca et al. Handgun waiting periods reduce gun deaths, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2017). DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1619896114AbstractHandgun waiting periods are laws that impose a delay between the initiation of a purchase and final acquisition of a firearm. We show that waiting periods, which create a “cooling off” period among buyers, significantly reduce the incidence of gun violence. We estimate the impact of waiting periods on gun deaths, exploiting all changes to state-level policies in the Unites States since 1970. We find that waiting periods reduce gun homicides by roughly 17%. We provide further support for the causal impact of waiting periods on homicides by exploiting a natural experiment resulting from a federal law in 1994 that imposed a temporary waiting period on a subset of states. Gun laws requiring domestic abusers to surrender firearms could save lives There is no debate regarding the numbers of people that are killed each year in the United States from bullet wounds—good records exist. The average is now up to 33,000 each year. What remains up for debate is what to do about it. Some individuals and groups have proposed enacting laws restricting gun sales, while others vehemently object to any such restrictions, citing their right to bear arms as spelled out in the Constitution. Somewhere in the middle, there are possible ways to reduce gun violence by enacting less restrictive laws. One such approach is to mandate that anyone buying a gun must wait a specified number of days after the purchase before taking possession of it. The idea is that a waiting period reduces murders and suicides because it gives those gun buyers time to cool off and think a little bit more about their plans before obtaining a gun. Unfortunately, evidence of whether this actually happens has been scant because the U.S. government has enacted laws disallowing the government from funding studies seeking answers to such questions. In this new effort, the researchers circumvented that problem by asking for and receiving funding directly through their own institution.The study consisted of two parts: The first looked at differences in gun death rates between states that had waiting periods and those that did not over the period between 1970 and 2014. The second part consisted of looking at changes in gun death rates in states that enacted waiting periods after passage of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act in 1994, which essentially forced all states to enact waiting periods.Results from the first part of the study showed on average 17 percent fewer gun-related deaths for states with a waiting period (and approximately 10 percent fewer gun-related suicides). Results from the second part of the study nearly mirrored the first—the trio found that gun-related homicide deaths following passage of the Brady Bill dropped on average 17 percent while gun-related suicides dropped approximately 6 percent.The researchers suggest their findings indicate that if the U.S. were to implement a nationwide waiting period for gun purchases, the country as a whole could reduce annual gun deaths by approximately 1,700 a year.center_img Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences © 2017 Credit: CC0 Public Domain This document is subject to copyright.

Citys illequipped to deal with roadworks

first_imgGet the biggest Daily stories by emailSubscribeSee our privacy noticeThank you for subscribingSee our privacy noticeCould not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailThere are roadworks in North Staffordshire that have been there so long the only surprise is they’ve not built a visitor centre and made them a tourist attraction. My own particular bête noire are those on Leek Road by the train station. I travel this way often to visit my old mother up in Penkhull. The lads up at the allotment like to borrow her old Crystal Gayle LPs for use as a bird-scarer. Coming from Cheddleton, there’s a consideration to be made early in this journey – is it worth risking the aforementioned junction or would it be better going a different way? Most times, I’ll take the chance, only to be left sat motionless in a queue of traffic. Such is the wait at this junction that it can be worth taking a shaving kit if you’re en route to a smart engagement or business meeting. Men may wish to do the same. There’s a temporary traffic light at these repairs which sits in a square box. It used to be by the Sixth Form College, now it’s been shifted across under the railway bridge. I dislike this traffic light immensely. It feels as if it has a malevolent power. I’m fairly sure it’s related to a Dalek. Read MorePolice warn cyclists not to ride on motorways in West Midlands I’m not a man for violence. I’ve never had a night out in Skelmersdale nor have I been to a dominatrix dungeon run by a member of Loose Women. But I could be prepared to visit serious harm on this traffic light. If you pass it one morning and see it mangled in the gutter, wires spewing from its broken form, don’t call the police, they’ll already be with me. The scene near the train station is, of course, repeated across the region. The thoroughfares of North Staffordshire are peppered with roadworks, surprisingly few of which are to repair potholes, some of which have grown so deep that applications have been made for open-cast mining. Those poor lads who got stuck in a cave in Thailand have been advised not to travel to Stoke-on-Trent in case they have flashbacks. I know roadworks are a countrywide phenomenon, but Stoke-on-Trent in particular seems wholly ill-equipped to deal with them. The problem is the city was never designed with the motorist in mind. People worked on their doorsteps, predominantly down the pit or at the potbank. Read MoreWatch out for these roadworks affecting your journeys this week Fifty years ago, a commute was a 200-yard walk. My mum recalls how there was barely a car to be seen on High Lane near where she grew up. Although this was the late 1800s. Down the decades, however, work, retail, and leisure patterns have changed. Nowadays we expect to be able to travel citywide quickly and efficiently. At the very least we would like to pass through Lime Kiln lights within the hour. No-one is espousing that we should have 16-lane superhighways such as in Los Angeles. That would be unnecessary to serve the clientele of the London Road Lidl. But we do need to think of solutions that go beyond the occasional junction change. I genuinely could drive to Derby quicker than Newcastle-under-Lyme from my house, and that can’t be right. The way things are we risk being featured on a low-end ITV documentary titled The World’s Worst Commutes, vying for the number one spot with the drive to work for the Ice Road Truckers. I know change can happen. The A50 eased a lot of congestion when it opened 20-odd years ago. The A500, which ranks alongside the Monaco coast road for breathtaking views, did the same. But it feels like we need something new. Can I suggest whatever that is ploughs straight through that traffic light in a box in Stoke?

first_imgRelated posts:Water bandits are the latest concern in worsening drought Costa Rica passes 2nd ‘popular initiative’ bill, which declares water access a fundamental right City officials finally promise relief to Cartago residents facing ongoing water shortages 145,000 to go without water in Escazú, Santa Ana and western San José on Saturday Water shortages currently affecting 77 communities throughout Costa Rica likely will continue until the end of April, the Water and Sewer Institute (AyA) said this week.Some 117,000 residents in the Greater Metropolitan Area (GAM) are the most affected by the ongoing lack of water, and AyA has been applying daily rationing for up to 10 hours during most of this year.The shortage is due to a severe decrease by some 50 percent in water reserves that affects mostly residents east of the capital, according to the AyA.The agency said water levels at sources supplying eastern San José decreased by 20 percent earlier this year, due to a lack of rainfall during the past rainy season.“The decrease in water reserves in this area was an unexpected situation caused by harsh weather conditions that hit the country in recent years and dried many water sources, mostly those closer to ground level, which usually are smaller and therefore more easily affected,” AyA’s GAM Manager Sergio Núñez said at a press conference.He also blamed consumers for “misusing” the resource.Customer complaints with AyA increase every day, yet the agency does not have an immediate solution.“Right now we are evaluating areas to drill wells that will allow us to increase water availability in our distribution systems, but these solutions likely will help us reduce shortages for dry seasons from 2015 onwards,” Núñez said.Currently the most affected areas east of the capital are Zapote, San Francisco, San Diego, Desamparados and the canton of La Unión, west of Cartago. Residents in these communities have been forced to ration water for up to 12 hours every day since January.AyA customers in these areas have complained to The Tico Times that their monthly bills arrive with the same charges, even though they have no water most of the day. They also say that AyA has not sent tanker trucks to the area to supply water as the agency does in other communities.The National Meteorological Institute recently reported that Costa Rica’s transition to the rainy season would occur as scheduled between late April and early May, but less precipitation in most of the country is expected, mostly due to the effects of the El Niño weather phenomenon.

Maria Nursery and Primary School Egbeani-Ezeawulu Nibo Anambra State with live goats Rev Father Nwafor said one of the reasons he gave them goats was that the poor among them can sell the goat for school fees and purchase books Last week the management of Santa Maria Nursery and Primary School splashed gifts of goats on outstanding students of the school who distinguished themselves academically in their various classes Nwafor told reporters “Actually it is an initiative of an Austria-based NGO called ORA The programme is ongoing in some Africa countries such as Ghana “An office of the NGO happened to be in the community where I worked for some time Through a friend it was extended to Nigeria” Asked about the choice of goats he said “It makes the children to be down to earth “In Awgbu where the programme has been going on for three years now some children are learning for the first time the various kinds of goat’s food “Second is for economic value The children learn to take care of animal till it gives birth The child sells it and uses the money to pay school fees if in private school or buy novels among other things “So they learn to care for animals In that way

least not less than 30 lives were lost during the 2011 general election “But during the 2015 elections there was great improvement which needed to be commended” he said He said the coalition noted that Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was able to do a lot of sensitisation which led to the success of the election He said observers noted that INEC materials were distributed a night before the Election Day while in some places they arrived on the election date Lema said card readers failed in some pooling units but the presiding officers adopted manual accreditation “Generally the card readers functioned effectively and security was perfect people were well guided except the unfortunate incidents that happened in Nafada and Dukku local government areas where 17 persons lost their lives in attack by insurgents” he said According to him women came out en mass to vote in some areas where they overshadowed the men He said people living with disability were also given a special consideration at pooling units and the electorate conducted themselves peacefully The coalition suggested that INEC should improve on voter sensitisation consider adequate training on the new material to be used by ad hoc staff especially the issue of card readers “We observed that some of the ad-hoc staff do not know how to use it they had to be put through” he said He said special arrangement for logistics should be made for staff and ad hoc personnel for the movement of material to the polling centres The coalition also recommended that accreditation and voting should be conducted simultaneously in future election “This is because some accredited voters who left to return at 1 pm to vote never returned and it gave room for political manoeuvering “Security should
