Stop the annual dolphin slaughter in Taiji

Every year between September and March, hundreds of dolphins are captured and killed in the most horrible way in Taiji, Japan. Twelve boats sail to the open sea almost every day to search for wild dolphins. A few kilometers from the coast, the dolphin hunters spread out to continue their search. This search sometimes take a few hours before dolphins are found. When a dolphin family is found, dolphin hunters take their position. The hunters start striking with a hammer on a metal pole that is at

We want a new pharmacy for South Queensferry

My wife and I applied for an NHS contract to dispense prescriptions in the new pharmacy we are planning to open in South Queensferry to serve the town’s rapidly growing population.

But, incredibly, the application was rejected,  leaving the local monopoly intact; safe from competition no matter how badly they perform or how many comp

Bring Dr DeAnn Bell back to Bangor!

Students of creative writing at  Bangor university are devastated to hear the news that Dr DeAnn Bell has been (in our opinion) unfairly laid off. DeAnn is in many ways a vital organ to the school of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics- especially for literature and creative writing aspect. She has gone far beyond the call of duty for each and every student that has needed her help and assistance. She is the prime example of what a good teacher should be. Not only inspiring us to believe in o

It is our opinion that Gamagara’s longstanding, blatant disregard of the law

The eThekwini Declaration 2019: A Radical Call to Action - Reinvigorating and Revolutionizing the HIV Response

The second Durban Declaration of 2016 affirmed the remarkable progress in response to the HIV and AIDS epidemic. Noting that South Africa remains the epicentre of the epidemic, that the drivers fueling the epidemic still persist, and that not everyone who needs care and treatment is receiving it, there is again a need to revive the sense of urgency, political will, compassion, transparency and accountability towards reinvigoration of the HIV response embedded in human rights principles and ethi
