Highway improvements needed
As citizens of Squamish BC, a commuter city, we have concerns about the risks citizens face driving along our dangerous highways. Our citizens are put at risk driving to Whistler on a daily basis and something needs to be put into action. On January 2, 2018, a tragic accident occurred leaving two casualties and multiple victims in critical condition. This left seven Squamish families devastated, dealing with the loss of their family members. This tragic event had occurred at 7:30 pm near Cheekye River Bridge north of Squamish. The accident was caused by a head-on vehicle collision with a minivan carrying seven passengers, all citizens of Squamish. This stretch of highway has experienced many tragedies along, much like the accident that occurred on December 17, 2015. Before 9 am near Callaghan forest service road there was another head-on collision. An investigation determined that a vehicle traveling northbound collided head-on with another vehicle traveling southbound. The RCMP said in a statement, “Road conditions were snowy and slippery which caused the vehicle to cross the opposite lane.” The northbound vehicle caught on fire with the driver inside and the driver of this vehicle did not survive although the driver of the other vehicle was transported to the hospital with minor injuries. This collision resulted in the decrease of speeds but no other changes were made to highway itself to ensure safety. Another head-on collision which took place on January 31, 2004. A northbound Volkswagen GTI carrying three passengers and a southbound Pontiac Tempest minivan carrying five passengers sideswiped each other at about 8:30 a.m. The Volkswagen crossed the opposing lane before coming to a halt head-on colliding into the minivan which caused the minivan to crash into a Ford SUV which carried a father with his 16-year-old son. The passengers of the Volkswagen were not injured. The accident took the lives of all five passengers in the minivan along with the father and his 16-year-old son, all were residents of Squamish. As we can see, there have been many head-on collisions on this highway. To improve the highways and decrease the number of head-on accidents, we have come up with the solution of putting concrete barriers between dangerous roads. Concrete barriers would prevent cars that slip and lose control from entering the opposite lane. Safety can be easily increased by reducing the impact of vehicle collisions with these concrete barriers. We need to reduce the crash continuity of the vehicle during its collision which would be possible with barriers separating the two opposing lanes. The barrier will absorb the vehicles force when it crashes and will direct it in another direction to prevent collision with the opposing car. As many Squamish citizens are driving up and down these highways every day we want to ensure that they are safe and also feel safe when they are driving. We have realized that there have been way too many head-on collisions which result in a very bad conclusion and we want to stop this. Many families are shaken by the recent disaster and do not feel safe driving up that highway to Whistler again and we want to fix that by placing concrete barriers between the two opposing lanes. We have started this petition to end these horrific collisions. We would like to get as many signatures as we can to help make highway 99 to Whistler a safer drive. We want people to take a stand for their own safety, so together let's do something about it. Please sign and share this petition! Together, we can ensure the safety of our community!

Completion of A1 Road Improvements
On the 23rd May 2018 Karl Heaney was killed in a RTC along the A1 dual carriageway between Banbridge and Dromore. Karl was a beloved son, brother, boyfriend and uncle. But more than that he was innocent. Actions of certain individuals led to Karl's death that night but upon researching the road we discovered plans to upgrade the A1 have been developed but not implemented. These plans first began to form in 2007. The proposed development was published in 2011 with 8 stages with the 7th stage being the beginning of construction. We are coming to the end of 2018 now and these plans are still only at stage 3. This is not good enough. This road is one of the most dangerous roads in Northern Ireland. It is the main road between Newry and Belfast and is the link road between Belfast and Dublin. Therefore we believe it should be top priority. People like Karl deserve better from their Department of Infrastructure, from their government. If these developments had of been implemented it would have prevented Karl's crash and many like it. We urge you to like and share this page amongst your friends. To share your stories of this road and it's dangers. Let's show the Department of Infrastructure and Stormont that we want answers and results now not in another 10 years time! The time to act is now. How many must die for them to listen to us?!!

Improvements in CNBA’s bathrooms / Mejoras en los baños del CNBA
EN Actually in CNBA (Colegio Nacional De Buenos Aires) bathrooms are in a very bad condition. There isn’t soap, some of the toilettes are broken and most chains work bad. In some cases there is no water in the sinks. Only some of this things are being repaired. The bathroom of the 3rd floor is completely closed since one month ago. In all breaks, men of the 3rd floor classrooms must go to the 2nd floor bathroom. We want the authorities to be aware of this situation and and that they can solve it. ES Actualmente, los baños del CNBA (Colegio Nacional de Buenos Aires) están en muy malas condiciones. No hay jabón, algunos de los inodoros están rotos y la mayoría de las cadenas funcionan mal. En algunos casos, hoy hay agua en los lavatorios. Solo algunas de estas cosas están siendo reparados. El baño del tercer piso está completamente cerrado desde hace un mes. En todos los descansos, los hombres de las aulas del tercer piso deben ir al baño del segundo piso. Queremos que las autoridades estén al tanto de esta situación y que puedan solucionarla.

Petition to Department of Education, Leo Varadkar, Irish Government
5th Years Have Been Forgotten
Dear Leo Varadkar , Department of education and to Whom else it may concern Now is a time of great stress for all, we have many selfless members of our communities and states who are all contributing to make sure that we as one persevere through this time. Recently the the department of education has called for the cancellation of leaving cert examinations for the current year in order to ease the stress on students who are in their final year of the senior cycle, I agree with this action, apart from the overlooking of the senior cycle as a whole, although 6th year students are the priority at the current time, I feel that the fact that the entire senior cycle (6th&5th) has been overlooked. The current situation has a knock on effect that transcends the current year, at present students are attempting to teach themselves their leaving cert course at home. The home is most definitely not an ideal place for learning and it’s not a steady learning environment for the majority of people.For many , myself included, the current online learning poses a problem for many sections of the leaving cert course. I like many others find it difficult to revise and prepare these sections of the course alone and even with help from the online classes there is a barrier between teacher and pupil and is unfair to those who do not have undivided access to these facilities Not only this but on return to the normal school environment teaching will be ramped up to a faster pace in other to cover these sections, thus causing the quality of both written and oral components of exams to drop, and for those students who have a lesser ability in these subjects but truly work hard to keep higher level up will have no choice but only to opt out of the higher course which is grossly unfair to there ethic and determination to keep up the higher course. Points for college courses will rise significantly next year due to the number of people planning on repeating their 6th year or resitting the exams in 2021. This adds extra competition for current 5th years and limits the places in college courses even more. 5th years are also likely to lose out on more vital classroom time in their 6th year. If you cannot sit 61000 students in 723 large sports halls (average 84 students) in August with social distancing, then you cannot put 30 students in classroom in September October November. We 5th years understand these are exceptional circumstances. We understand there are bigger problems. We just want to be kept in the loop about our future and our education. Thus we are calling for some action to be taken on the leaving cert 2021, for the betterment of well being and mental health of all in senior cycle not just 6th year. We’re not looking for immediate action, just some clarity about our future.

Highway 637 improvements
KILLARNEY NEEDS YOUR HELP PLEASE SIGN Hwy 637 is in a desperate need of repair, potholes are a foot deep, pylons are all over the highway, bump signs and asphalt fill are non existant. We are a tourist town, June-Sept are the busy season, the highway has caused front end damage and tire blowouts for many residents and visitors. One young resident had his small hatchback written off lastweek, he had to hit the pothole because of an oncoming RV. People are outraged, we deserve better than this, as a fire department member I am extremely concerned and worried about this. KILLARNEY NEEDS YOUR HELP

Transgender Healthcare Services In The UK Are Broken - URGENT Improvements Are Needed
Gender diverse patients, waiting up to four years for a first appointment, are suffering unnecessarily. Clarity is urgently needed on interim healthcare options. The Women and Equalities Committee inquiry into the provision of LGBT healthcare has now closed (05.10.18) and our thoughts have never been more focused on the future provision of healthcare to gender diverse patients in the UK. Now is the time for transgender voices to be heard and for their health to be given the same level of importance as every other person in Britain. The 2016 Women and Equalities Report found that ‘the NHS is letting down trans people, with too much evidence of an approach that can be said to be discriminatory and in breach of the Equality Act.’ Yet, since then, little appears to have changed. Gender dysphoria, if dismissed and ignored, is life-threatening across all age groups, and yet patients can wait up to four years for a first appointment. By comparison, patients with diabetes wait 18 weeks to see a specialist. To that end, the signatories of this letter are today calling for better transition healthcare for this marginalised group of people. Despite the World Health Organisation thankfully declassifying their diagnostic category of Gender Incongruence as a mental illness in 2018, there is something about gender diversity which makes some people very afraid. Mention children and the levels of hysteria rise further, as borne out by regular tabloid headlines denying and ridiculing those who are simply not comfortable with the gender they were assigned at birth. Yet, research recently published in the the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry reveals that when children are allowed to transition, including the use of puberty blockers, it improves their mental health. Furthermore the American Academy of Pediatrics, which with 64,000 professional members is the most respected paediatric organisation in the world, recommends taking a “gender affirming” non judgemental approach so that: “children feel safe in a society that too often marginalizes and stigmatizes those seen as different.” As you well know, our response to gender variant patients here in the UK is to put them on a waiting list for highly specialised NHS service provision. These specialised service clinics are massively overwhelmed. As a result, young people wait 18 months just for an initial appointment, and adults wait up to four years. It is only then, that the path to treatment begins and it is a path that can take anything up to 24 months. Many trans patients are told that their care will be withdrawn if they seek interim private options while they wait for NHS services. No other branch of medicine would operate in this way. Furthermore, while they wait, there is often little support, as many GPs and local hospitals hide behind a shocking lack of knowledge and skills. Instead huge numbers of patients are left to flounder. For some, this proves too much and they resort to accessing medication on the black market without a prescription, to bridge the gap while they wait for safe care. For others, it is worse and common outcomes are self harm and suicide. The recently published NHS England Service Specifications supports an approach emulating best practice in parts of Canada and the US. Here, a primary care based model operating according to the informed consent principle, is closer to the ‘norm’. However, while the developments are certainly heading in the right direction, patients are unlikely to see the benefits until 2021/22. Furthermore, the service specifications do not give any recommendations on bridging services for patients while they wait for treatment, nor do they advise GPs on how they might support their patients, while they wait to be seen. The guidance does refer to the fact that patients might be self-medicating, but offers no advice for the safe transfer to prescribed medication. What these patients need is access to the right interim support and medication via a channel where they can be monitored and cared for. Healthcare professionals of all grades also need emergency education to enable them to offer help at all levels. Patients are suffering and a workable solution must be found. We are calling for:- NHS waiting times for gender diverse patients of all ages to be urgently reviewed.- Clear options on interim solutions to be made available to people while waiting for their NHS appointment.- Assessment and treatment pathways to be modernised.- Alternate healthcare solutions to be recognised.- Clear information on how best to support gender-diverse patients in a primary care setting to be cascaded to those working in primary and secondary care.- Clear guidelines so that GPs feel empowered to offer support, including bridging prescriptions and shared care agreements, where requested.- Private care to be made available without retribution or consequences to the patient (as laid out in the NHS constitution). On behalf of the many transgender people currently being let down by NHS healthcare services, we request a response to the above issues outlining how they will be tackled, and by when. We welcome the opportunity to discuss our ideas for education and service delivery in person, and to facilitate the opportunity for trans voices to be heard.
