Dear Dan Norris, Metro Mayor, I am writing to you on behalf of the residents of Withywood and Hartcliffe regarding the lack of bus services in our area. As you may be aware, there are currently no buses taking passengers from our community to Knowle or Brislington. This has caused a lot of inconvenience for the residents, especially when it comes to important daily activities such as going to work, visiting family and friends, and even doing our weekly shopping. For instance, to get to Jubilee Pool in Knowle, we have to take a bus to central Bristol and then another one to Knowle. This is not only time-consuming but also costly, especially for those who rely on public transport. The same goes for those who work or want to shop at the Brislington retail park. We have to take a bus...

Greetings fellow-Americans. I am posting this urgent notice as a military veteran and former Air Traffic Controller with a security clearance to inform you of an unpleasant event that will disrupt your life and mine later this year. I have lived abroad for many years and acquired this information from friendships I made overseas. Next year I will fully identify myself but for now my message to you is far more important... Someone I know in a foreign government position and known to be very reliable and serious, has asked me to warn the American public that the Deep State is planning to indefinitely delay the 2024 Presidential elections with a "false flag" cyber attack that will put all or most of America into a "prolonged blackout lasting months". Without electricity, there will be...

I was a Staff Nurse at MBHT until May 2020 when Long Covid caused me to become unable to work. I was hospitalised in November 2020 in the South West and diagnosed with severe ME/CFS. I was diagnosed with Long Covid and significant Dysautonomia by Dr Arnold Deering (Consultant Physician) in January 2021. I learnt of Millie's situation from a petition created to help her situation. https://www.change.org/p/save-millie-s-life-royal-lancaster-infirmary-must-stop-causing-millie-harm?source_location=psf_petitions Millie's diagnoses of ME/CFS and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTs) are more than just fatigue and difficulty tolerating upright positioning: These illnesses are linked with a dysfunctional autonomic nervous system. In her case, it is likely that she has an...

Simply, the world is what we make it. If we don't like the way it's going, then we should probably do some self examination. If we can't deal with the world, it's because we can't deal with ourselves as we are. I offer to you that the problem with humanity is not knowing what's right or wrong and not having the POWER, the will, to do right, even if we know it. And I'm going to give you the solution, so bear with me. (Not my solution, I'm just passing it on.) Lack of power? Yes. Because we rejected God and his standard, and as a result we disconnected ourselves from God, our only source of true power. And as long as we remain disconnected, we will continue to fail; limited/no power to live a "good" life and do what's right for ourselves and society. It's not rocket science...

I am so sickened by the hypocrisy of Joe Biden spewing his toxic rhetoric about "Our democracy is being threatened" yet he himself refuses to allow anyone to debate him in public, or allow Dean Phillips, Cornell West, nor Robert Kennedy Jr. to run against him in the primaries. WTF!?! If indeed he really believes he deserves another term, then WE THE PEOPLE deserve to know why in a live debate where others can challenge him and ask him unscripted spontaneous questions. Reading campaign speeches from scripts that someone else wrote for him is a farce and an insult to our intelligence. He clearly thinks he is a king entitled to retain his throne. How dare he say our democracy is threatened! If he was on a live stage his opponents could confront him about the invasion at our Southern...

The Hon Mike Johnson Speaker of the House U.S. House of Representatives Washington, DC 20515. 12th December 2023 Mr. Speaker, I write to you today after learning with some dismay that despite external and internal pressure, you remain unwilling to allow a vote on aid for Ukraine. The United States is currently the most powerful nation in the world, and the lynchpin of much of the rules based international order that trade and prosperity so depends on. This power has three main sources, your impressive military and economic might and your soft power, your reputation. Your reliability. A reputation for reliability can take a lifetime to build but be destroyed in moments. We all know that Russia is unreliable, in fact one of the first casualties in the current conflict was...

The Hon Anthony Albanese MP Prime Minister Parliament House CANBERRA ACT 2600 24th November 2023 Dear Prime Minister I am writing to you as a gravely concerned citizen of Australia, in relation to the Australian government’s stance on the conflict in Palestine/Israel. As I write this it is estimated that there have been over 12,000 innocent Palestinians killed with over 5,000 of those being beautiful innocent children with their whole lives ahead of them now taken. Prime Minister I have been heartbroken and appalled at the horrifying images coming out of Palestine. I do not know how anyone can view this disproportionate response by Israel and not feel compelled to do something, anything. With each day that passes more lives are lost and the humanitarian catastrophe in...

To Senator Tommy Tuberville I am writing you this letter to advocate the rights of college athletes. Since you have recently introduced bills with Senator Machin regarding NIL rules and regulations, I thought you would be the best person to contact about this issue. Currently student athletes are not considered employees (Henson, 2023). I think that all college athletes should be considered employees of the university they attend. College sports have become more about money, yet athletes are still not compensated as much as they should be. Without student athletes, many people would lose a ton of money including university, advertisers, and TV channels. Student athletes should be able to negotiate their own deals with the people who make money from using their name, image, and...

Dear editor We, academics at Johannesburg’s universities, express heartfelt condolences to the families of 77 fellow residents of our city who died in the fire at the Usindiso Building in the city centre. We sympathise with those who were injured and those whose possessions were destroyed in this tragic event. We hold the City of Johannesburg, which is the owner of the building, responsible for allowing it to fall into the state of dilapidation that made a disaster more likely. We condemn all those, but especially our politicians whose mandate tasks them with upholding the Constitution, who have blamed immigrants and NGOs (specifically the Socio-Economic Rights Institute) for what occurred. Civil society organisations and all our country’s residents – no matter their national origin...

Esta carta é redigida pelas mãos de um jovem limeirense, mas que contém o sentimento de indignação, asco e revolta de pessoas de todo o país que puderam assistir e acompanhar a repercussão de um acontecimento recente que ocorreu na câmara municipal da cidade, engajando políticos e intelectuais. Este escrito é dirigido à todes os vereadores do município, embora sabemos que nem todes são da mesma forma e corroboram com tal posicionamento. Sendo assim, a crítica é diretamente orientada para os vereadores que se recusam a reconhecer o seu papel enquanto tais, que se acostumaram ao poder, como bem exposto pelo cidadão Hamilton Fernando de Mello — que logo após foi ameaçado e silenciado. Assim, gostaria de excluir algumas pessoas da candidatura atual de minha crítica, como a vereadora Isabelly...
