In Ontario, it is illegal for drivers to talk, text, type, dial or email using hand-held cell phones and other hand-held communications and entertainment devices. Find out the risks of distracted driving, which devices you can and can’t use and the penalties you could incur.
Risks of distracted driving
Good drivers keep their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road. Research shows that drivers who use cell phones are four times more likely to be in a collision than drivers who focus on the road. And when drivers take their eyes off the road for more than two seconds, their crash risk doubles.
Ontario’s distracted driving law
In Ontario, it’s against the law to:
•operate hand-held communication and electronic entertainment devices while you’re driving
•view display screens unrelated to your driving
Saudi Arabia Elected Chair of UN Human Rights Council Panel
What a joke this is.
When I think “champion of human rights” I always think of Saudi Arabia. What with the public beheadings and women not being allowed to drive cars and all. Oh, and being gay is punishable by death too.
We wonder if Pope Francis will address the issue of the Saudis at the head of Human Rights Council panel when he speaks at the UN later this week? Sadly, he probably won’t.
(From UN Watch)
“We cannot forget that the U.S. and the EU refused to utter a word of protest when we urged them, together with Saudi dissidents, to oppose the monarchy’s election in 2013. It’s a sad comment on our world that oil continues to trump basic human rights principles.”
“It’s bad enough that Saudi Arabia is a member of the council, but for the UN to go and name the regime as chair of a key panel only pours salt in the wounds for dissidents languishing in Saudi prisons, like human rights activist Raif Badawi.”
People should be outraged at this idiotic move. Maybe it is time for the United Nations to be dismantled if this is what it does.
It is nice to see someone who is wealthy and a Muslim actually do something to help the Syrian refugees. This guy puts his money where his mouth is. Now if only more Muslim countries would take the lead in taking in refugees. As we have seen Muslim countries refuses to take in the refugees. The only one has been Turkey I believe. I THINK MOST THEM FEEL THEY DO NEED NEED THE HASSLES. This also sets off people to think this is an Islamic plot to move Islam into more countries of the world. True or not at least this guy is trying to help. Read on for more information.
Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris has offered to buy an island off Greece or Italy and develop it to help hundreds of thousands of people fleeing from Syria and other conflicts.
The telecoms tycoon first announced the initiative on Twitter.
“Greece or Italy sell me an island, I’ll call its independence and host the migrants and provide jobs for them building their new country,” he wrote.
More than 2,300 people have died at sea trying to reach Europe since January, many of them Syrians who fled their country’s four-and-a-half year conflict. Keep reading, there’s more!
The African nation of Angola has become the first country in the world to entirely ban Islam. Angolan Minister of Culture Rosa Cruz e Silva stated that Islam is contradictory to the customs of Angola culture, and so it cannot exist in the Christian nation.
The process of legalization of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human rights, Silva told reporters. Their mosques would be closed until further notice. All of the more than 80 mosques in Angola are set to be destroyed.
Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos called the move the final end of Islamic influence in our country. The Angolan government has fully backed the decision, saying that Islam is not a religion, but a sect. Keep reading, there’s more info!
A few months ago in France this happened.A woman, named, Angelique Sloss, was severely beaten last week by five women between the ages of 16 and 24, while she was sunbathing with two friends on a French beach.
The incident began when one of the Muslim women allegedly shouted at Sloss for acting “immorally” by wearing a swim suit in public, leading to speculation that the attack was religiously motivated. Sloss responded and the women began slapping and punching her. A passerby eventually broke up the attack.
This an example of the rudeness and intolerance that Muslims have when they immigrate to other countries. Too many, not all, try to push their way of life Keep reading, there’s more outrage below!
This happened in August 2015 and it is good to see. Let’s hope it does some good. A conference of Sufi Muslims resolved to promote “tolerance and co-existence between the followers of Islam and Christianity.”
Three-hundred Islamic scholars and imams from Somalia, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia and the Democratic Republic of Congo pledged to “join their respective governments in weeding out extremism.”
The group, part of a two-day International Sufi Conference in Kenya, said extremist Wahabi doctrine – emanating from Saudi Arabia – had hijacked Islam, and they had underestimated its appeal.
Europe’s august nations are about to commit collective suicide and we’re about to witness the willful surrender of an entire civilization, according to a Danish historian.
In Denmark, human migration used to be a thing of the past, but not anymore, says Bent Jensen, Ph.D., a well-known Danish historian.
“Day and night, hordes of people with no fake IDs (or no IDs whatsoever) storm Europe’s undefended borders. Back in the day, they would’ve been stopped and forced to go back by the police, army or border control. Now, however, European warships are used to safely escort the migrants to safe harbors, where they are provided with food, shelter and are allowed to obtain refugee status,” says the professor.
Mr. Jensen points out that while there were many migrations in the past, like the migrations of Europeans to the US, Canada and Australia, as well as migrations within Europe itself, things were quite different as migrants had no welfare system to rely on and had to fend for themselves.
He also point out that the ongoing migration is quite different from those that took place before.
“We’re talking about people from another culture that is radically different from European culture. These people don’t want to assimilate, and demand special treatment Keep reading, more to think about below!
