  1. Where attention goes, energy flows. Imo the answer to many issues is supplying better alternatives. But how do you bring about a sea change in gutter press addicts? How do we raise vibes rather than spend time condemning and pouring attention on undesirable facets of everyday life? But let’s look at the media as a whole. Fact is that negative, scary, scandalous stories are news. However mild the reporting. We need a daily source of positive stories etc.
  2. Thankfully not taking part in any of this circus now anyway. However, as stated the generic version I referred to above was quite obviously not what was stated on the package. As mentioned, other generics appeared to be ok. But this definitely wasn’t. The issues of doctors’ preferences opens up an entirely new can of worms. Thank goodness I’m not participating in any of this nowadays.
  3. They can be. And that comment comes from doctors. Although I was taking generics for some issues, one particular medication was quite obviously not what was stated on the pack. (I experienced a particular and severe side effect from the standard version). A family member was also advised to insist on original. Thankfully, this is history for me. I found other ways of dealing with things.
  4. But since the vast majority of island docs were against it, that seems an unlikely defence.
  5. How many remember these old cottages? I do. My great aunt lived in one. Not quite as old as the one in the Folk Museum, but quaint and cosy.. Could it be that we are to be robbed of anything that pertains to life here before the financial sector arrival and all that came with it? The Manx language was practically eradicated. How is Manx culture to survive if MNH gives it the boot?

The World Health Organization is looking for further research as EHS is recognized as an issue for some. https://www.who.int/peh-emf/publications/facts/fs296/en/
  8. Apologies. Will look it up. .... Not easily located, it seems.
  9. Have noted that those who mention this topic are usually jeered at on social media. But can anyone supply reliable results from tests that have unequivocally demonstrated that this technology is safe? Tests carried out by independent organizations, which are not based on tissue heating, but the effects of radiation? The World Health Organisation aims to further better understanding of EMS, as little research has been carried out. https://www.who.int/peh-emf/publications/facts/fs296/en/. Not sure if it is acceptable to share this, but it is of local interest: https://secure.avaaz.org/en/community_petitions/House_of_Keys_We_call_for_a_MORATORIUM_on_the_implementation_of_5G_technology_on_the_Isle_of_Man/?fxnFImb&fbogname=Jeff+C.&utm_source=sharetools&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=petition-727683-We_call_for_a_MORATORIUM_on_the_implementation_of_5G_technology_on_the_Isle_of_Man&utm_term=xnFImb%2Ben
  10. It refers to three different incidents. And a group mentioned again. Where does the info come from? Assume it is the police and that it is valid information. After all, they appeal for witnesses.
  11. Thank you for that reassurance, Derek. Could you also state whether the use of weapons has not increased?
  12. Has violence increased? I don’t know but the lack of transparency on this topic only leads some to question things. The ‘Move along there now. Nothing to see here ‘ responses really serve only to result in questioning further. http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=48400&headline=A weekend of violence in town centre&sectionIs=news&searchyear=2019
  13. Thanks for that Paul. Am not so informed about most of these topics so follow passively. But just despair at the amount of hijacking that seems to take place. Unfortunately many appear to rise to the bait.
  14. I assumed that was the routine tactic for certain topics.
