"plastic soup"

Ape-X just sent me this report in the Independant on our plastic rubbish. What we throw in the bin every day has to end up somewhere and this article just shows us where! And its totally unreal, sickening and unfortunatly true..

A "plastic soup" of waste floating in the Pacific Ocean is growing at an alarming rate and now covers an area twice the size of the continental United States, scientists have said.

This is worth reading - very good advice re police. Please pass on!!!

My dear friend Susan sent me this and it's solid information for any women driving alone in their car in the UK...

Dear Friends,

It don't normally like to circulate things that create fear. I found this information helpful and hope it provides advice and does not promote anxiety.

Much love Susan

This story takes place over the Christmas/New Year's holiday break. It was the Saturday before New Year and it was about 1.00pm in the afternoon, and Lauren was driving to visit a friend, when an UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put its lights on.

Lauren's parents have 4 children (of various ages) and have always told them never to pull over for an unmarked car on the side of the road, but rather wait until they get to a service station, etc So Lauren remembered her parents' advice, and telephoned 112 from her mobile phone. This connected her to the police dispatcher she told the dispatcher that there was an unmarked police car with a flashing red light on his rooftop behind her and that she would not pull over right away but wait until she was in a service station or busy area. The dispatcher checked to see if there was a police car where she was and there wasn't and he told her to keep driving, remain calm and that he had back-up already on the way.

Ten minutes later 4 police cars surrounded her and the unmarked car behind her.One policeman went to her side and the others surrounded the car behind. They pulled the guy from the car and tackled him to the ground........ the man was a convicted rapist and wanted for other crimes.

I never knew that bit of advice, but especially for a woman alone in a car, you do not have to pull over for an UNMARKED car. Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going to a "safe" place. You obviously need to make some signals that you acknowledge them (i.e.put on your hazard lights) or call 112 like Lauren did.

Too bad the mobile phone companies don't give you this little bit of wonderful information. So now it's your turn to let your friends know about 112 (112 is an emergency number on your mobile that takes you straight to the police because 999 does not work if you have no signal).

interviews with nifty lighter shifters!

Add to Technorati Favorites

Are you a nifty lighter shifter or a ninja pen pincher?

At uni we were asked to create an interactive flash animation and I came up with a character called Sparky and delved into the whole phenomena of the unconscious act of picking up/ acquiring/stealing lighters and pens. The link is to animation. Any feedback welcome :-)


Welcome into the undiscovered world of ‘Nifty Lighter Shifters’ and ‘Ninja Pen Pinchers’.

Nifty Lighter Shifters and Ninja Pen Pinchers are all around us and could even be you!

Have you ever reached into a pocket or bag for a lighter pulled out 3 and wondered where they came from? Or wandered off with someone’s pen in the office or lighter down the pub?

If your answer is YES then you ARE A NIFTY LIGHTER SHIFTER!!! And YOU are part of an underground phenomena…
Join us on Facebook or My Space n start tracking your lighter by requesting a label... If your lighter is nicked (and labeled) File a missing lighter report n see if the person with your lighter fronts up... Hold it to ransom… Negotiate to get it back or just sit back and watch where your lighter adventures too… Who knows your lighter might end up in maybe Egypt, Sydney, Paris, Los Angels or Tokyo and who you’ll meet on the way..

If your answer was ‘No! I always get my lighters and pen’s stolen’. If you are saying to yourself I’m always buying new lighters and my pen jar is always empty then you are the victim of Nifty Lighter Shifters!! Do you ever wonder what happened to your lighter? Find out by downloading label’s put them on your lighters. Then when you give someone a light tell them about the label and that if they end up with the lighter by mistake (of course lol) ask them to go on facebook and log the lighter.. It might make life a bit easier knowing the next few pounds you spend on lighters will create few little seeds of lighter adventures hahaha - you can track your lighter’s and watch thier journey unfold.. Find out why you and the reasons why people do it!

Joining Nifty Lighter Shifters on Facebook/Myspace is the bridge to a website due to go online later this year. On the site there will be a place to track, upload pic’s n clips of a lighters journey… hold lighters to ransom, put up rewards for missing lighters, and find out who your lighter woke up with the next day! Confess in the confessional booth, check out why you might be a victim or an unaware Nifty Lighter Shifter and worse still a person who goes out with the intention to nick lighters!!! Join in group sessions and have one on one counseling or just plain go on voyeuristic journeys whilst tracking your lighter.
