In reply to Emma on the phone benefits of the NBN. It’s all well and good until you lose power, then you have no phone or internet, which is not very good in an emergency where lives could be on the line.
In the past few months I have read articles in various papers that said that because of our increasing rates of obesity and related conditions, future generations may not reach the age expectancies that we have today.
With reference to the article on the Easter police blitz (Mercury, April 14), this temporary increase in demerit points and penalties won’t work. We have already seen 11 deaths on NSW roads so far this month.
