NO MORE AVOIDABLE HOLIDAY DEATHS! Safety Helmet & Quad/Bike Regulation Laws For All.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my petition. My 21 year old daughter Amarna Carthy was killed tragically on a quad bike in Turkey on the 24th of May 2016. She was travelling on the back of a quad driven by my sister Jakadi (left) who was also injured. Both Amarna and Jakadi had helmets on, as you can see in the picture taken of them on the day our beautiful Amarna died. Here you can also see that the legally acceptable helmets issued, are totally inadequate. Amarna died from catastrophic head injuries and her helmet was collected from the scene, in pieces. We would like to change this, so another family doesn't have to suffer this awful loss and fly their loved one home the way we did. Compulsory crash helmet laws with possible journey distance limitations when renting quads, need to be in place so no more lives are wasted like our beautiful girl. We would also like to push for a full drivers licence requirement when renting a quad, rather than the provisional that is now in place, reflecting the seriousness and power of these vehicles. Currently it is only a legal requirement that a person "carries" a helmet on a quad or bike in Turkey, but not actually wear one. There are also no legal requirements for companies to carry out regular safety checks to ensure these vehicles are road worthy. There are no specific requirements regarding the quality of the helmets issued along with a rented bike, or quad and issuing a helmet is not compulsory. As you are probably aware. This happens in many other countries too. THIS ALL NEEDS TO CHANGE. People driving with no/poor quality helmets should no longer be something we expect to see when travelling to some countries. Together we can make this a priority around the world and by doing this.. Save lives. The law needs to be a protection to holiday makers and locals, in countries where riding without a helmet is considered normal. Please help us change this situation for the better, by signing and sharing our story with others and hopefully forcing better helmet safety laws around the globe! #missingmarna Please share to help raise awareness with our young ones.

Petition to Devendra Fadnavis, Sushma Swaraj

Save Indian farmers by creating a portable online trading platform

                                            VOTE FOR THIS PROJECT Imagine working hard for 4-5 months, battling against forces like nature, pests and wild animals to generate a precious produce that brings with it hopes of wealth, expectations and dreams...only to see that produce being sold for extremely low prices and being not wanted by any buyer and then realize that the crop they had planted 5 months ago was a wrong choice. Agriculture sector in India remains largely disorganized and inefficient due to lack of modern technologies and old-fashioned method of auction trading. Farmers are unaware about the market dynamics and make uninformed decisions when itcomes to sowing crops. This leads to imbalance in supply-demand of agriculture commodities. The proposed system uses data mining techniques to provide farmers with daily market rate predictions and right crop sowing suggestions at the right time. The system suggests crops which shall be in demand at their maturity and also provides a smart trading platform for selling the commodities to institutional buyers. The method involves farmers and constitutional buyers to make profiles on this platform through their cell phones and uploading their real time crop data and nature of trade respectively. The system then compares this data with the national consumption values obtained from interpolated historical data, to provide accurate crop suggestions with respect to future demand. This method further involves day wise market rate prediction of agriculture commodities, using K-NN algorithm. The predictions are based on the amounts of commodities bought into the market each day. These are tracked from the trades taking place through the system’s time advanced online trading platform. Thus this system aims to decrease the gap between supply and demand and stabilize market rates. Designed for India's culture The system uses smartphones and 2G internet as the only infrastructure Easily deploy-able and easy to maintain Executable in a low budget High scope of scaling Huge Impact by decreasing wastage & stabilizing market rates
