Making the ISI helmet compulsory is a great initiative by the bangalore traffic police. But this is meant to crack down on substandard helmets. Helmets with DOT and ECE certifications are far more superior in safety, and should be allowed. The problem is simple and clear, and we find that banning these helmets are not for the betterment of the riding community in general.Read more

A pesticide believed to kill bees has been authorised for use in England despite an EU-wide ban two years ago and an explicit government pledge to keep the restrictions.
Following lobbying from the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) and British Sugar, a product containing the neonicotinoid thiamethoxam was sanctioned for emergency use on sugar beet seeds this year because of the threat posed by a virus.
Conservationists have described the decision as regressive and called for safeguards to prevent the pollution of rivers with rainwater containing the chemical at a time when British insects are in serious decline.
The decision by 11 countries to allow emergency use of the product comes amid a growing awareness of the harmful role played by refined sugar in the development of long-term health problems.
Matt Shardlow, the chief executive of the invertebrate conservation group Buglife, said it was an “environmentally regressive” decision that would destroy wildflowers and add to an “onslaught” on insects.
“In addition, no action is proposed to prevent the pollution of rivers with insecticides applied to sugar beet,” he said. “Nothing has changed scientifically since the decision to ban neonics from use on sugar beet in 2018. They are still going to harm the environment.”
The EU agreed to a ban on all outdoor uses of thiamethoxam in 2018 to protect bees. When the UK pledged to back the ban, Michael Gove, then the environment secretary, said: “The weight of evidence now shows the risks neonicotinoids pose to our environment, particularly to the bees and other pollinators which play such a key part in our £100bn food industry, is greater than previously understood … We cannot afford to put our pollinator populations at risk.”
He also wrote in the Guardian: “Unless the evidence base changes again, the government will keep these restrictions in place after we have left the EU.”
The UK, however, has now joined EU countries including Belgium, Denmark and Spain in signing emergency authorisations for its use, according to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).
A similar emergency application for England in 2018 was refused after government pesticide advisers said it would “cause unacceptable effects to bees in flowering crops and flowering plants in field margins”.
It added that it would harm “birds and mammals eating seedlings from treated seed and birds consuming pelleted seed” and risked “adversely impacting populations of aquatic insects”.
Scientists have observed significant declines in some British bee species since 2007, coinciding with the introduction of thiamethoxam, which was previously widely used. Studies suggest that it weakens bees’ immune systems, harms the development of baby bees’ brains and can leave them unable to fly. Another study has found honey samples being contaminated by neonicotinoids..”Read more

Petition to PBAC (Pharmaceutical Benefit Advisory Committee), Health Minister of Australia
It's watching my beautiful 2 year old play that shatters me most now. I was diagnosed with an aggressive melanoma cancer fourteen years ago. It devastated us.
What's been keeping me alive – and giving us hope that I'll beat this awful disease is new wonder drug MK-3475, but because the government is still yet to put it on the PBS we're going broke and could have my cancer treatment cut short.
Doctors around the world say MK-3475 could save my life and many others. Just trialling the drug has reduced my tumour size by 70%. It's costing us $10,500 every 3 weeks and we can't afford to self-fund the hugely expensive treatment much longer.
I can't believe that the cancer drug that could save my life is slipping out of reach because of these mindless government delays.
They need to put it on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme immediately. It's what doctors, cancer sufferers and experts are all saying. And we've got a chance to convince the government to act in the next few weeks before they meet in March.
This decision could mean life or death for me. It could mean seeing my little boy grow up or not. But this is about more than just my family. 1,400 people are dying from melanoma every year in Australia – it's one of the biggest, silent killers. Yet we're dragging behind the US and Japan in approving this new treatment.
Please, Mr Abbott – don't let cancer sufferers like me die waiting for this drug, add MK-3475 to the PBS immediately. Step in and do something to help us. We're begging you.
Thank you for reading, and please sign my petition to add your support.
