BAN homework in secondary school around England and the rest of the United Kingdom

They should ban homework in England in secondary schools because it is the most important years to be studying at school to get GCSE but if you have homework all the time you are missing out on learning. Plus you can spend hours doing the pieces of homeworks and the teachers might not mark them in which you don't know whether you are improving. Plus by doing no homework it would give the students more time to learn and have more time to be able to do stuff they enjoy like hobbies. And it should be up to kids how they revise. And the teachers to prepare the lessons instead of handing homework out in which it could improve learning because it wouldn't take up the time. And if you do your homework you never have time to go out with friends or family because they set to much homework and students go to school about 30 hours a week and spend more hours doing homework they should be able to relax there brains and having a break not doing work all the time.what happens if you win? Well it would stop homework which would give more time to students to do what they want like sports or there hobbies and socialising with other people like friends.and cause teachers can use the time to prepare the lessons instead of handing out homework in which student might not know what to do. and also they don’t give the help student need because they are interested in homework not the pupils progress and whether they are understanding the knowledge!  You spend hours doing it and the teachers don’t mark it which means that time you can be spending with your friends and family also they don’t realise that you only stay a kid for not long so you want to enjoy it. and homework does not help you get a GCSE so the teachers can help you more and stop giving detentions and help people to achieve and learn what they need  they never consult the parents or students and can set how much homework they want which it isn’t fair and this causes health problems because you are not doing fun things like hobbies  a number of health problems are: .heart problems  .anxiety  And another thing is schools set all this homework but then they don’t think socialising or spending time with your family is important like going to beaches so you have memories as you are only young for not long and school do not look at this and they set loads of homework way to much over the weekends but they don’t realise that you too want a break and spend time with family and friends and homework does not help you and it causes health problems  And even teachers get breaks over the weekends and go places so they need to take in consideration of students and they should just ban it so teachers can teach better and homework don’t help cause teachers harlf the time don’t even mark it!

Water is the most crucial element for life next to air and therefore cannot be owned by private entities for profit, questioned as an issue of cost or used by politicians as a topic for politicking. We, the people of Malaysia call on all related government & corporate authorities/bodies to immediately: 1. stop politicizing water and cease all blame shifting/finger-pointing; and 2. resolve the water management crisis for the Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, State of Selangor and all other States through any means necessary such as: a. repealing the National Water Services Industry Act (WSIA) 655 (2006); b. reversing privatization by decentralizing and returning all treatment, delivery and management assets to the control of the people/States;  c. absorbing and or writing-off/nullification of (where required) all debt related to the supply, treatment, delivery and management of water; and or  d. cost exempt/shared funding (where required) by the Federal and State governments for the restructuring and pipe replacement exercise.

Release the seven innocents of Kandhamal

Seven innocent Christians from remote Kandhamal district in Odisha state of India are languishing in jail following the mysterious murder of Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati on August 23, 2008. These innocent Christians - six of them illiterates including a mentally challenged - were convicted in 2013 for the murder touted as a Christian conspiracy. Following the Hindu leader's murder, nearly 100 Christians had been killed and 300 churches and 6,000 Christian houses plundered and torched in unabated violence that continued for weeks. Hindu masses - most of them illiterate - had been incited to take revenge on the Christians after the slain Swami's body was paraded across Kandhamal for two days along zigzag routes. A third judge of the trial court - after two judges were transferred - convicted the accused Christians and sentenced them to life imprisonment on the basis of a fabricated Christian conspiracy theory despite hardly any credible evidence brought before the court. In mid 2015, two top police officials - who had relied upon the same conspiracy theory to ensure the conviction of the accused - have testified before the Kandhamal judicial Inquiry commission that the allegations were false. Yet, the hearing on the appeal of the innocent convicts has been pending in the Odisha High Court. Hence, I urge the Chief Justice of India, Odisha High Court and other constitutional authorities to end the travesty of justice and release the seven innocents...
