Allow for a 10% flexibility open road speed in New Zealand

Allow for cars that use public open roads a 10 % flexibility in open road speed limits of 100 kmh. the main reason for this is that car speedometers are not as accurate as the law allows for. A near minimal tread tyre versus a new tyre can be as much as 2% out so what are they calibrated to. A different brand or fitment of tyre can be up to 5% out in speed reading. Due to circumference variations. The speedo can be 1% out from factory on all new cars. Together with the fact that it often is no

Keep 19 Kids and Counting on TLC!

Let's petition TLC to keep the show 19 Kids and Counting on! There's a petition going around trying to get this amazing show cancelled. This family has brought inspiration to so many people including myself. With all of the disfunctional shows on TV and yes I am guilty of watching them, this show is about an amazing family that inspires me to be the best mother and wife that I can be. I am not the same religion, I don't have 19 kids, and I don't dress like them, but their message is something th

Stop Testing on Monkeys

I ask that the Regents immediately take action to stop the unethical and scientifically unnecessary use of nonhuman primates in experiments at University of California campuses and laboratories. Animal experimentation fails to hold the promise of new technologies, including nanotechnology, microfluidic methods, stem cell research and personalized medicine; or to yield the comprehensive results of well-established research protocols such as clinical and epidemiological studies.  Ethically, animal

Campaign to force the CPS to review decision RE Summer Mai

Over two years ago today Summer died through no fault of her own. She dies after suffering "blunt force trauma" injuries to her skull. Other than falling from her cot and jumping back in again several times these injuries are as yet unexplained! It's reasonable to say these were more than likely inflicted on Summer by a third party at or around the 12 hours before her death. With Summer at this time were her Mother, and her mothers boyfriend. Up to present no one has ever been charged with Summe
