Hi! I am a random guy from Sweden that might to move to isle of man with some friends in the future😀 I was just wondering as the title says, What Towns / areas in isle of man are not recommended to live in / go to & what areas are considered more Rich / Safe? 🤔
As an ex IOM resident now living on the Wirral; when I was sailing back into the IOM ferry berth at Liverpool yesterday (following a pleasant trip on the Balmoral around Anglsea) we passed the Manannan leaving for Douglas & I noticed the stern cargo loading door was open, I went & spoke to a steam packet employee in he arrivals lounge to be told that "yes they do it like that since the the catches broke, the procedures have changed". This morning I had a look through the photo's I took when we were leaving Liverpool as I recalled taking a couple of the incoming Mannan and you can see what the situation is in the picture below... As I recall, when the ship is about to leave port the Captain announces to those on board that "all external doors are closed and the ship is ready for sea" - also, I undersatnd that the Captain has to verify to the Coastguard before setting sail that "there are no defects" - or list them; is this being done ?. Manannan entering the Mersey on 22/07/2017 at 09.43 showing the cargo loading ramp/door clearly not locked & indeed, wideopen. Ironically, this position is roughly where the original Ellen Vannin sank in 1909 - swamped by a large wave to her stern... NB: Excerpt from the International Maritime Organisation rules on RORO ferries safety - "Following the Herald of free Enterprise and the Estonia disasters, the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) adopted the first package of amendments to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) in April 1988, including a new regulation requiring indicators on the navigating bridge for all doors which, if left open, could lead to major flooding of a special category space or a ro-ro cargo space; another amendment added a new regulation requiring cargo loading doors to be locked before the ship proceeds on any voyage and to remain closed until the ship is at its next berth. These amendments entered into force on 22 October 1989, 18 months after adoption, the minimum time period allowed under SOLAS". NB: I can find nothing to say these rules no longer apply or have been amended for short trips in good weather etc. Concerned - Alex on the Wirral.
The Manx Government has decided to use a new, improperly tested HPV vaccine to inject into all girls over the age of 12 starting this September!! Gardasil has been responsible for many deaths of young girls, with more and more reports of extremely serious side effects. "In September 2008, in the FDA’s (The Food and Drugs Administration) closing statement on Gardasil they stated that 73.3% of girls in the clinical trials developed “new medical conditions” post vaccination. 17 girls died during the clinical trials.1 The list of serious adverse reactions reported after HPV vaccinations worldwide includes deaths, convulsions, paraesthesia, paralysis, Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS), transverse myelitis, facial palsy, chronic fatigue syndrome, anaphylaxis, autoimmune disorders, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolisms and cervical cancers”2 There have been many more reported reactions to both Gardasil and Cervarix including flu like symptoms, Lymphatic system disorders, Gastrointestinal disorders and pain, birth defects, miscarriages, mouth ulcerations and the list goes on.3" http://sanevax.org "Two British doctors recently wrote a piece in the BBC urging the U.K. National Health Service (NHS) to switch from Merck’s Cervarix human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine to GlaxoSmithKline’s (GSK) Gardasil HPV vaccine, in its mass vaccination program for young girls. And the two “experts” admit that they only say publicly what helps the vaccine to be well received by the public. “We, as consultants in sexual health, have been told to say nothing publicly that would damage the current (HPV) vaccine campaign,” they state in their piece. Drs. Colm O’Mahony and Steve Taylor insist that because Gardasil allegedly protects against genital warts as well as HPV, it is superior to Cervarix, which NHS currently administers to young girls. As long as Gardasil is the same price or cheaper than Cervarix, then NHS should use it, wrote the doctors. And if it is more expensive, then Cervarix is the next best option, they say. But what is missing from their recommendations is the fact that Dr. O’Mahony has been on the advisory boards of both GSK and Merck, and has received “lecture fees” for his services. This clear conflict of interest may be the precise reason why no mention is made in the BBC piece about the countless thousands of young girls that have become debilitated or died from both Cervarix and Gardasil." http://www.infowars....mit-death-toll/ "New Delhi: The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has told Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat to immediately suspend the cervical cancer control vaccination programme for girls. The programme is part of a two-year study to look into the utility of a vaccine in public health programmes and acceptability of Gardasil, the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine made by Merck. Gardasil, available in medical stores across the country, is marketed in India by MSD Pharmaceuticals Pvt Ltd. The programme was marred by controversy after four deaths and complications among 120 girls were reported after vaccination. The girls complained of stomach disorders, epilepsy, headaches and early menarche. Women activists fear the vaccine may impact the mental health of girls who have shown no signs of distress so far. Health ministry sources said the vaccination programme is being conducted by Gardasil, jointly with PATH, a Seattle-based NGO, ICMR and the two state governments. About 32,000 girls, aged 10-14, were to be tested in the study. ICMR chief Dr VM Katoch clarified ICMR was only a technical partner, with an advisory role, in the project. But Katoch said they were checking out who was at fault. Questioning the study, CPM leader Brinda Karat said: “How has the government embarked on the study of giving three injections to the girls when it is also planning a massive multi-centric dose determination study to see if two doses will suffice?” For a drug to be administered to children, Karat said, it has to go through stages of clinical trial, including phase 3 adult clinical trials. With Gardasil, only one trial has been carried out with a small sample of 110 girls, which has followed up with them for a month after completion of vaccination and that too only to look at the immune response post-vaccination, Karat said. The vaccine has also been approved for adult women aged 27, Karat said, without any trials on them. Karat also alleged scientific logic and ethical guidelines have been violated at each step during drug and vaccine trials." http://truthaboutgar...er-4-girls-die/ http://www.examiner....-mortem-samples http://www.marketwat...ssue-2012-08-08 http://www.cbsnews.c...62-4781658.html (please read all of the comments at the bottom of the CBS News article): "he Guardasil Vaccination has been linked to Guillain-Barre Syndrome. It affects the nervous system and is extremely devistating and long term. My 26 year old daughter suffer this after her third shot. She began to experience "pins and needles" in her hands and feet. She was admitted to the hospital and within 3 hours she was in ICU for 30 days. Ended up on a respirator and was paralyzed from the neck down. She was in the hospital for 3 months. She has recoved and is walking again after eight months. This was from Sept. 30, 2009. She began walking with a walker in March, 2010. I would recommend consulting a Neurologist. Since December, 2010, the side affects of the Guardasil and H1N1 vaccinations are listed. Guillain-Barre Syndrome is one of those side affects. Please research this syndrome." http://www.infowars....ew-school-term/ The reason the Manx Government have decided to use this unsafe vaccine is that it COSTS LESS than the current vaccine! That is their justification: "Dr Parameswaran Kishore Director of Public Health Isle of Man), said: “Our initial focus was to introduce a vaccine which will offer protection against cervical cancer and Cervarix was the most cost effective option. However the manufacturers of the other brand of vaccine, Gardasil, have recently been able to offer their vaccine at a competitive price which meant that this vaccine can be used for vaccination of girls aged 12 – 13 from September 2012. Gardasil will offer equal protection against cervical cancer but will also protect against two of the common strains of virus causing genital warts”. Jacqui Dunn, Health Protection Nurse and Manager of the IOM Vaccination Programme, said: “We have had a great success with the HPV vaccination programme with uptake receiving 90% and we would like to continue to achieve such high rates of uptake. Gardasil will be administered exactly as the previous vaccine, Cervarix”. " http://www.gov.im/li...randofhpvva.xml The Gardasil Story: http://sanevax.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/Creating-an-HPV-Industry.pdf Should the Manx Government be looking for the cheapest option? Or the safest ? PLEASE DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH BEFORE YOU ALLOW YOUR CHILDREN TO BE INJECTED WITH THIS POTENTIALLY FATAL VACCINE!!! THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING, THE MANX GOVERNMENT HAVE BOUGHT SOME CHEAP VACCINE THEY ARE GOING TO INJECT YOUR CHILDREN WITH IT !! PLEASE LET YOUR FRIENDS KNOW ABOUT THE DANGERS, ANYONE ON FACEBOOK OR TWITTER PLEASE ADVISE YOUR FRIENDS TO DO THEIR OWN RESEARCH BEFORE ALLOWING THEIR CHILDREN TO BE INJECTED DO NOT BELIEVE THE OFFICIAL HYPE, DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH. Since 1990, the U.S. Government has collected adverse event reports following the administration of vaccinations. This data is stored in the VAERS database and is available for anyone to search or download. Anyone can file a VAERS report, including health care providers, manufacturers, and vaccine recipients. The majority of VAERS reports are sent in by vaccine manufacturers (37%) and health care providers (36%). The remaining reports are obtained from state immunization programs (10%), vaccine recipients (or their parent/guardians, 7%) and other sources (10%). Vaccine recipients or their parents or guardians are encouraged to seek the help of their health care professional in filling out the VAERS form. Each report provides valuable information that is added to the VAERS database. Accurate and complete reporting of post-vaccination events supplies the information needed for evaluation of vaccine safety. The CDC and FDA use VAERS information to ensure the safest strategies of vaccine use and to further reduce the rare risks associated with vaccines. Here is a link to the VAERS database: http://www.medalerts...ersdb/index.php Select HPV4(gardasil) in the "vaccine products table then click "find". Read through the reports, make up your own mind! It is not compulsory to have vaccinations, some vaccinations are beneficial and safe. Gardasil is a relatively new vaccine, concerns have only recently begun to intensify. It is up to parents to satisfy themselves about the safety of any vaccine before allowing their children to be injected with it.
