Look at the things our trusted British organisations do…….UK ‘will take back toxic waste found in Brazil’

From the Independent on Sunday today. This is truly shameful behavior. And some people boast about what a civilised country we are!


By Rosa Silverman, Press Association

The UK is set to take back more than 1,400 tonnes of toxic waste that was found in Brazil, the Environment Agency said today. 

The Agency said it was aware that over 80 containers of waste had allegedly been illegally exported from the UK to Brazil.

Plans are now being made to bring the rubbish back, although the process could take a number of weeks, it said.

Those responsible could face prosecution, the Agency warned.

 Head of waste Liz Parks said the waste was currently being held by Brazilian authorities.

 She told the BBC: “They haven’t yet released it, as far as I’m aware. But arrangements are being made for that to happen. And it will take a number of weeks for the waste to be returned.”

 The Environment Agency has launched an investigation into the case and to determine if an offence has been committed.

 A spokesman said: “The UK is completely against illegal trade of any kind and has taken a strong global lead to stamp out the illegal trade in waste in order to protect the environment and human health.

 “Where the Environment Agency detects or is made aware of the illegal export of waste, it works with all relevant partner authorities to ensure the environmentally sound management of any illegal shipments – including the possible return of wastes to UK.

 “If any company is found to have contravened the strict controls on the export of waste as set out by the Basel Convention, the Environment Agency will not hesitate to take enforcement action.”

Thought of the Day……….

Fill every thought with determination, every step with courage and every word with love.

In Pursuit of Your Passion……….

This is yet another great piece by Mike George.

Is there anything in your life you are passionate about? What is your passion? Are you sure it’s real passion? Passion is another of those concepts whose meaning has become grey at best, totally blurred at worst.

Most of us will learn to think passion is good. Some of us will come to believe that if you have no passion you have no life, and you might as well be dead. Others exhort us to find our passion in life and then to pursue that passion with a …passion! And there are an increasing number who advise us to fill absolutely everything we do with ‘a passion’ if we want to be successful. Few go on to say exactly what they mean by passion, and so the word passion tends to be loosely and vaguely mixed with a variety of concepts including love, anger, suffering, attachment and enthusiasm.

One Flaw In Women………..

My Aunt sent me this –

Women have strengths that amaze men.

They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy.

They smile when they want to scream.

They sing when they want to cry.

They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in.

They stand up to injustice.

They don’t take “no” for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.

They go without so their family can have.

They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

They love unconditionally.

They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards.

They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding.

Their hearts break when a friend dies.

They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.

They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colours.

They’ll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you.

The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.

They bring joy, hope and love. They have compassion and ideas.

They give moral support to their family and friends.

Women have vital things to say and everything to give.


Coping With Bereavement……….

My Cousins lost their Father recently as my Aunt lost her wonderful Husband. Yesterday, one of my closest friends in this world lost his Mum.

So having lost my own Father and knowing how it feels, I wanted to just add a post on bereavement and what help is out there.

My experience was one of the worst things I went through. For the first 3 months, I waited for his key to go through the door and for him to say hello to me. I longed for that until I realised it wasn’t going to happen ever again. I cried none stop for 2 years – on the train, walking in the street, I’d be buying something in a shop and I’d start crying. I just couldn’t stop. I’d wake up, be ok and then realise my Dad’s not here and then a sick feeling in my stomach would come in and that was it – I felt shit for the rest of that day. I couldn’t understand why everyone was saying sorry – what were they sorry for? I’d get angry and frustrated. I also lost a close friend, beautiful Tanzil, a month after my Father so I started having dreams that everyone was suddenly dying – friends, family, anyone. This freaked me out. I was numb for a very long time. It was a very strange 2 years but slowly and surely, I got over it.

We are lucky – in the days of the internet, there is an abundance of data available that can really console you. It’s a great start to read up on the bits below but I would also recommend talking to 1)someone who has been through a similar situation and know how it feels and what you go through – no offence but until you have lost someone close, you have no idea how it feels. 2) See some kind of a professional like a Counsellor or Healer who can just listen to your thoughts and feelings. Get it out into the open. I promise you they would have heard it all before. 3) spend sometime amongst nature – like in a park or by the sea either alone or with company and think of the good times you shared with that person.

Here are just a few good sources of info but there is so much more. I guarantee whatever you are feeling, someone somewhere has felt that too. We just don’t talk about it as much.

We all die one day. No one is here to stay. But as I full well know, this is a really hard thing to deal with.
