So there seems to be a plethora of opinions on when you do and do not have to wear a face covering. These “opinions”, which tend to be based on hear’say and in most cases, are wrong. So we are going to try and clarify this issue to stop any hostility that may be caused by this lack of knowledge.
Satutatory Instruments 296 of 2020 clearly states the following:-
5. Without prejudice to the generality of what constitutes reasonable excuse for the purposes of Regulation 4(1), a person has reasonable excuse if
-(a)the person cannot put on, wear or remove a face covering
-(i)because of any physical or mental illness, impairmentor disability, or
-(ii)without severe distress
This basically means that if wearing a face covering causes stress or will cause stress due to a medical condition, panic attacks, hyperventilation etc, then you are exempt from wearing a face covering. It doesn't matter if a shop owner, member of staff or Gardai do not agree with this law. This is the law, period! And not following the law means that you are breaking the law.
We have just been notified by AES (Waste Recovery Company) that they will not be issuing brown food waste bins to residents in Crossakiel due to the small amount of customers that they have at present.
We know that the billing has changed and now everything will be based on the weight of your black bin. Everyone is allocated 500kg and if you go over this amount, you will be charged 12c for every Kilo you go over your limit.
We contacted AES and informed them that charging customers on a per weight basis when we cannot avail of the brown food waste bin was not fair, so they have agreed to increase the weight limit from 500kg to 1000kg for each customer, but this is not automatic. You will need to contact them on 045 580060 and speak to customer services.
When AES have enough customers in the area or when it is possible to issue the brown bins, they will do so.
As wireless companies prepare to launch the next generation of service, there are new questions about the possible health risks from radiation emitted by mobile phones and the transmitters that carry the signals.
Concerns about the potential harmful effects of radiofrequency radiation have dogged mobile technology since the first brick-sized mobile phones hit the market in the 1980s.
Obviously, the residents of Crossakiel should also be concerned due to the fact that we have a Vodafone mast located just outside the village. At present, it is offering a GSM and a UMTS Service (Universal Mobile Telecommunications Service), but we do not know how much power this mast is pushing out into the Crossakiel village at present.
Researchers are very concerned about the dangers of 5G but Industry and Government officials have largely dismissed those fears, saying the radiation exposure is minimal and that the devices are safe. Incidences of and deaths from brain cancer have shown little change in recent years despite the explosion in mobile phone usage, they note (selective research by the Government! Ed).
Unfortunately if you ask any school or Government department about the dangers of mobile phone and Wi Fi technology, they will provide you with a 14 page, 2007 report produced by the World Health Organisation (WHO) stating that the technology was researched and it was deemed safe. This is the general programmed dogma that all the officials will give you.
This is what they will not tell you - When the World Health Organisation put together a group to decide if this technology was safe, they asked a man called Dr. Michael Repacholi to chair the group. To no surprise, the group found the technology to be safe and they proceeded to inform the WHO of their findings. The WHO then informed the rest of the Governments in Europe and provided them with the 14 page report.
After this was completed, the WHO found out that Dr Michael Repacholi was actually “Double Jobbing” and was also a consultant for the communications industry, “conflict of interest” you may say? You would be right. The WHO proceeded to sack Dr Repacholi and since the horse had already bolted, meaning the report had already been sent out, the WHO choose deniability from then on in as they would have a lot of egg on their face.
