An offer for apartments with balconies in a compact urban area is strongly contested by neighbors.

Developers want to demolish a house that is in “poor repair” and replace it with a four-story apartment building with balconies in St Peter’s Road, Great Yarmouth.

Residents have objected, saying the cramped urban area is already plagued by noise, anti-social behavior and parking issues – and the addition of apartments will make matters worse.

One resident said the process of building in such a built space where everyone was on top of each other would be “living hell”.

Another, commenting on the borough council planning portal, said the people living around Lancaster Road / St Peter’s Road were “all decent people who just wanted a normal life,” adding: “There is never peace ”.

She went on to say that anti-social behavior was not addressed and that there was “garbage everywhere”.

According to plans, the Burton’s Buildings site, which has alley access, will be demolished and replaced with four one-bedroom apartments, some with balconies.

Giedre Andrus, of Optimum Rent, who submitted the offer, moved to reassure residents that the demolition process would not be noisy and would be carried out with sensitivity.

She also said the balconies would not be large enough for the chairs and tables.

The board’s development control committee meets Wednesday, October 13 at 6 p.m. to discuss the plan.

Officers recommend approval saying the building is similar in size to the old one and residents will not be significantly affected.

Police officer Samiullah (Sami) Halepota awarded in London

Submitted for publication in the Surrey Advertiser

A police officer working in Runnymede, Surrey, won an award for his role in a six-month operation dedicated to protecting young people by tackling anti-social behavior and child exploitation.

Constable Samiullah (Sami) Halepota recently graduated from Police Now’s National Graduate Leadership Program and won the Rising Star Award at this year’s Target Jobs National Graduate Recruitment Awards.

After learning about repeated drug-related anti-social behavior (ASB) in a local area, PC Halepota further investigated and identified two groups of young criminals operating in the area, led by several adults with potential links to trafficking. drugs, guns and violence.

Calls and visits were made to residents of the estate and multi-agency meetings were held between children’s services, police and partner organizations to facilitate intelligence gathering and information sharing. Adult offenders have been targeted using innovative tools such as Child Abduction Warning Notices (CAWNs) and the tailored use of ASB legislation to restrict criminal activity and actively protect young people from harm. risk of exploitation. In addition, support was offered to vulnerable children and their families.

As a result of PC Halepota’s work, there has been an almost 50 percent reduction in overall ASB on the domain and no other significant concerns have been reported to the Children’s Services Police. A number of civil orders have also been put in place for major offenders as well as policies and procedures established with partner agencies.

PC Halepota realized that one of the reasons this much bigger problem had gone unnoticed before was that many incidents were not reported to police by local residents. PC Halepota was motivated not only to tackle the ongoing ASB and CCE, but also to tackle this underlying issue and start building better relationships with residents.

He said: “Thanks to the joint work of everyone involved, relationships have been established between the community and partners and we have open communication channels for continued support.”

PC Sami Halepota was recognized not only for his work at Runnymede, but also for his courage in challenging his own hostile feelings towards the police as a Pakistani Muslim in a post 9/11 political environment, and in leading change within the force as Surrey general secretary. Police Association for Cultural Ethnicity.

He continued, “I never looked at policing as a career until I saw the Police Now program. Joining the police as a Pakistani Muslim was a challenge, a lot of people in my community didn’t understand why I would.

“It’s a challenge, but at the end of the day it’s because of this, and because I want to make a difference, that I gained a lot of opportunities. I was allowed to access places. and to platforms where I can actually make a difference.

“There are always two sides to a story and personally I would rather come in and give a voice inside this institution than to be outside and fear it.”

Police Now also chose the Best Diversity and Inclusion Strategy, for its strategy through its National Graduate Leadership Program and National Detective Program, in partnership with Renegade Communications.

Clare Power, Director of Recruitment and Marketing at Police Now, said: “I am delighted that Police Now has been recognized by students at this year’s National Graduate Recruitment Awards, especially given the prestige of the awards, and we are all particularly proud of PC Halepota who has demonstrated an exceptional level of competence and results for someone who has only recently joined the police family.

“The recognition we have received is a testament to the strength of the Police Now brand and the confidence in the program, which has really shone over the past few years despite the significant challenges the police sector has faced over the last few years. last year.

“None of this would be possible without the hard work of our colleagues at Police Now and the Renegade team, as well as the tremendous support of our partner forces the Home Office. “

The ceremony took place on Friday October 1 and nearly 100,000 individual votes from undergraduates, apprentices and school leavers were counted before the awards show. Police Now and Sami Halepota were selected as winners by a jury made up exclusively of students.

Mr. Editor,

The current pandemic is causing a dramatic change in our lives, far beyond what we even thought was acceptable until 2020. Such a great sacrifice is said to be necessary to protect our loved ones, the healthcare system and the economy. However, this is not without legitimate concerns and fears.

As public opinion continues to await more data on the real implications of COVID-19 vaccines, the scientific debate has ignited over extremely contradictory conclusions. And the only measures capable of containing the viral spread always seem to be social distancing and personal precautions (wearing appropriate masks, washing hands, monitoring for possible suspicious symptoms, etc.): in other words, adherence. maximum of all to the rules of behavioral prophylaxis. [1].

No wonder, then, that many are beginning to perceive this situation as an endless and frightening tunnel. For this reason, now like never before, we are in desperate need of trust. Trust in institutions, communication, research. And above all, to have confidence in ourselves as citizens.

I would like to say a few words on the last aspect of the question. For the past year and a half, we have been asked to control our decisions in the most responsible and prudent manner. Which essentially means having the best control over our behavior. While this is something we take for granted every day, it can be different today despite our best efforts. Why?

My answer may sound a little odd, or at least unusual when it comes to viruses. But for every deception, there is an unconscious victim of the trick: the more control she thinks she has, the less she actually has. We represent SARS-CoV-2 primarily acting as a passive actor in the so-called “host adaptation process” [2].

This is proven, for example, by the current discussion about how quickly it is evolving into more transmissible and stimulating strains. Nonetheless, what I would like to point out is that we still lack the flip side of the coin: whether this virus might be able to actively adapt the host for its own purposes.

After all, from an evolutionary perspective, this is a much less rare trait than you might think at first glance. Dr Bouayed and Dr Bohn suggested this theoretical approach for SARS-CoV-2 in their work [3]. Several parasites show the ability to manipulate host behavior in order to improve transmission and spread.

Among them, some worth mentioning are Nematomorphs (toward), Ophiocordyceps (mushroom), Plasmodium Malariae and Toxoplasma gondii (protozoa), Wolbachia(bacteria), Rage (virus). The mechanisms behind their strategy are not always known, and most of the time they remain a complete secret to us and their hosts. Fortunately this is no longer the case with rabies, thanks to the invaluable work of Dr Hueffer and his team.

In 2017, they discovered something amazing: a short sequence of amino acids inserted into the viral glycoprotein is able to alter behavior, turning the infected animal into a frenzied and aggressive mood. [4, 5, 6].

This is due to the neurotoxic properties of the twine, which is almost identical to the venom of some snakes. The results of the experiment showed a key role played by this “snake-like toxin” sequence in the disruption of normal nicotinic receptor activity in the central nervous system, highlighting how the rabies-derived peptide (RV- 183A or RV-183P) induces subtle effects but decisive oscillations in cerebral communication [7]. The consequences are better verifiable by looking at the following link: https://youtu.be/cFMPHhszez8.

Regarding our current situation, an important question must be raised. Indeed, the presence of a “snake like toxin” sequence does not seem to be specific to the rabies virus. In May 2020, Dr Changeaux, professor emeritus of neuroscience at the Institut Pasteur, proposed a “nicotine hypothesis” _for COVID-19 [8]. On this occasion, he highlighted how the SARS-CoV-2 spike glycoprotein contains a motif homologous to that of snake neurotoxins and the RABV neurotoxin-like region.

Further away in silico the findings, made by Dr Farsalinos and his team, recognized a superposition between the peptide fragment aa375-390 and a sequence of the homolog of the neurotoxin NL1 [9]. Their work strongly supported the idea that this amino acid sequence interacts with nicotinic acetylcholine receptors and that SARS-CoV-2 itself could be considered a blocker of their function. Something was confirmed later, in early 2021, thanks to molecular modeling and docking experiments conducted by Dr Alexandris and Dr Lagoumintzis [10, 11].

This characteristic should be considered of the utmost importance now, in light of two facts. First: many studies show a surprising ability of SARS-CoV-2 to invade central nervous system tissues, suggesting that the virus can gain access to the brain by first infecting the olfactory bulb and then spreading to the brain [12]. Such remarkable neurotropism raises many concerns, and research around the world is making an extraordinary effort to study its consequences. Second: the cholinergic pathway plays an essential role in the modulation of dopaminergic reward responses as well as locomotor behavior, emotional state, attention, learning and memory. [13, 14].

And the rabies lesson clearly teaches that anything capable of altering its activity could potentially have a chance to control the host’s behavior. What if the virus is currently hijacking the minds of infected people, in order to make them inappropriately hyperactive, anxious, impulsive, sociable? So, in the end, much more transmissive? My reasoning is highly speculative, and the only intention is to show things that I consider of great importance and

deserving of urgency in vivo investigation. If those who should be protecting others (i.e. the paucisymptomatic infected person) are led by the virus not to do so, the only barrier we currently have could inevitably collapse. Conversely, if we change the rules about what controls us, we will change the rules about what we can control. So, a crucial question to ask now is: can we trust ourselves, if we are infected?

The epidemic of anti-social behavior plaguing the city of Dublin was highlighted by two Dublin TDs last night after hearing chants of sexual violence against women and youth gangs bombarding people with eggs.

Fine Gael TD Alan Farrell warned last night that Ireland has “a very long way to go to ensure that toxic masculinity is eradicated from our society” after seeing a female train passenger threatened with chants. “.

Dublin deputy Fingal called the incident “depressing” and said he was so stunned by the event that he asked other passengers if what he heard was correct.

Elsewhere on the city’s main thoroughfare, Social Democratic TD Gary Gannon said he saw a gang of about a dozen young people pulling eggs as people lined up for a bus on O’Connell Street.

Discussing the disturbing event he encountered on his train trip yesterday, Deputy Farrell said: go to ensure that toxic masculinity is eradicated from our society.

“‘Fiddle it’ chants were heard among the guys, after some lonely women

“I even checked with other passengers if I had misheard. “

Fine Gael TD added: “Such a depressing event, men so young. Supposedly in touch with what it means to be a man of the 21st century.

“They were locals, there is no doubt. Some recognized this when I confronted them in Malahide, and I thank them for at least acknowledging the problem, others have come at me for my Politics. Above all, they have a long way to go.

“Toxic masculinity is where bravado takes over and decency makes no sense.”

Dublin Central TD Gary Gannon said anti-social events are becoming a “growing problem” and must “be tackled at all levels”.

Detailing the events he saw, Deputy Gannon posted: “I just witnessed a dozen young men cycling down O’Connell Street with their faces covered, throwing eggs over them. people queuing for a bus.

“There is not only a police solution to this growing problem, but an empty Garda van parked next to the GPO is not a great deterrent either.

“I love walking around the city at night, but I understand how much of a luxury it is for me, as so many others who are unlike me are the targets of verbal abuse and worse. It has to be tackled at all levels because our city center cannot be left like this. “

It was announced yesterday that An Garda Siochana is planning to introduce a number of new initiatives to tackle anti-social behavior in the city center.

Justice Minister Heather Humphreys said a high-visibility initiative should be launched to tackle public unrest and anti-social behavior in Dublin city center in collaboration with local communities.

She said: “We want people to feel safe in Dublin, whether they live in Dublin, own a business in Dublin or want to visit and enjoy our capital.

A SPIKE of anti-social behavior after the lockdown prompted police to demand that a Windsor nightclub reduce its opening hours.

The owners of Labyrinth in Unit 15a, Windsor Royal Station want to open the nightclub Monday through Sunday from 11 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. the next morning, as well as serve alcohol, play music and movies in room from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m.

They also want to extend their opening hours by one hour on New Year’s Day and New Year’s Day at the venue that once hosted the Vanilla nightclub but has come into operation.

However, Thames Valley Police (TVP) have asked to reduce opening hours to 2 a.m. and have requested ID scanners for clubbers accessing the site. These two conditions were rejected by the applicant, Epic Bars and Clubs Berkshire Ltd.

This and the objections raised by residents triggered a licensing subcommittee on Wednesday, October 6, prompting applicants to present their cases to councilors.

Speaking at the meeting, Inspector Mike Dower, Neighborhood Inspector for Windsor and Maidenhead, explained that demand for the Night Economy has “increased dramatically” after the lockdown and TVP is busy “every Friday and Saturday nights “with crime and anti-social behavior. increasing behavior.

He said: “The hours they advance are too late. We are already seeing a massive increase in crime and unrest in this region.

“We are already seeing anti-social behavior drifting around Bridgewater Terrace. ”

The meeting took place at York House

Inspector Dower added that the hours of operation are “inconsistent” with the region and “does not understand” why identity scanners are a problem for applicants, citing that the technology is helping with law enforcement and prevention of crime and unrest.

But Andrew Woods, lawyer for the plaintiff, argued that their request was in line with that of other bars and nightclubs in downtown Windsor, citing that their plans were almost identical to those of the nearby Atik nightclub which had been licensed. approved a few months ago.

He also removed off-sale alcohol sales and added a condition for staff to clean up trash on the street after the club closes.

The advisers will make their decision within five working days whether or not to approve the request.

Patrol robots that issue warnings to people with “unwanted social behavior” are being tested in Singapore, raising concerns that they could lead to a state of “surveillance.”

The move added to an arsenal of surveillance technology in the tightly controlled city-state, fueling privacy concerns.

From a slew of CCTV cameras to testing streetlights equipped with facial recognition technology, Singapore’s “safest country” is experiencing an explosion of tools to track its people.

In September, two robots were initially tested to prevent people from flouting COVID-19 rules.

Officials have long championed the vision of an ultra-efficient, tech-driven ‘smart nation’, but activists say privacy is sacrificed and people have little control over what happens to their data .



“Xavier” patrolled shopping and residential areas during the September trial

Singapore has been criticized for restricting civil liberties and people are used to tight controls, but there is still growing unease over intrusive technology.

The government’s latest surveillance devices are robots on wheels, with seven cameras.

They warn people against anti-social behavior. This includes smoking in no-go areas and improper parking of bicycles.

During a recent patrol, one of the “Xavier” robots made its way through a housing estate and stopped in front of a group of elderly residents watching a chess match. “Please keep a distance of one meter, please stick to five people per group,” yelled a robotic voice, as a camera above the machine stared at them, reports The Guardian.

“It reminds me of Robocop,” said Frannie Teo, a 34-year-old research assistant, who was walking through the mall. “It makes me think of a dystopian world of robots … I’m a little hesitant about this kind of concept,” she added.

Digital rights activist Lee Yi Ting said the devices were the latest way Singaporeans were monitored. “All of this contributes to the feeling that people (…) need to watch what they say and do in Singapore much more than they would in other countries,” she said. at Agence France-Presse (AFP).

The government defended its use of robots, saying they were not used to identify or take action against violators during the technology trial, and that they were needed to deal with a labor shortage. work as the population ages.

The workforce is actually shrinking, ”said Ong Ka Hing, from the government agency that developed the Xavier robots, adding that they could help reduce the number of officers needed for foot patrols.

The island of about 5.5 million people has 90,000 police cameras, a number expected to double by 2030, and facial recognition technology – which helps authorities spot faces in a crowd – can be installed on streetlights across the city.

There was a rare public backlash this year when authorities admitted that coronavirus contract tracing data collected by an official system had been viewed by police. The government then passed a law to limit its use.

“There is no privacy constraint on what the government can or cannot do,” said Indulekshmi Rajeswari, a Singapore privacy attorney who is now based. in Germany.

The 64-year-old also cannot sit on the floor or stay outside a store in Swale, except for a medical reason.

He is also ordered to ensure that he leaves all premises when directed by police, OPS or anyone acting legally and cannot go anywhere where he has been prohibited or excluded.

Officers from the district’s Community Safety Unit worked alongside Swale’s council to tackle his behavior and in September last year he received a written warning.

However, police said he ignored this and continued to behave in an antisocial manner and “negatively affected” the quality of life of residents in the neighboring area.

In April, he received a Community Protection Notice (CPN) and was again given the opportunity to correct his behavior, but he did not.

“We have taken this measure as a last resort to protect those who use the area …”

After ignoring the advice, he was then arrested. Grist did not appear in court in September and an arrest warrant was authorized for him.

Officers tracked him down and took him to Medway Magistrates’ Court where he was found guilty of violating the CPN, fined £ 80 and ordered criminal conduct.

PC Jamie Spencer of the Swale Community Safety Unit said: “Kent Police understand the impact that anti-social behavior like this can have on residents, businesses and visitors. A person can be responsible for a lot of anxiety and stress in these people. in the community and we are committed to tackling the problem.

“We have taken this step as a last resort to protect those who use the area and hope the court order will lead Mr. Grist to improve his behavior.

“Anyone who sees Mr. Grist violating the order must report it to us so we can take action.”

A CALL was launched to introduce traffic measures to tackle “reckless drivers and young runners” by using a stretch of road as a “race track” during the day.

Residents of King Edward Quay in Colchester have banded together to start a petition calling for a lower speed limit and traffic calming measures along their busy road.

The group says the road, accessible via Distillery Lane to the west and Haven Road to the east, is frequently abused by speeding.

He said: “This reckless and illegal behavior appears to be appealing due to the long stretch of straight road with no visible speed limit or standard street lights to define it as a public road.

“During the day, many motorists detour to Haven Road if it is very busy or flooded, then accelerate dangerously along the narrow platform in an attempt to get around the traffic.

“Later that night, often after midnight, young racers use King Edward Quay as a meeting point and then as part of a racetrack loop with adjacent Haven Road.”

The group said drivers often perform reckless maneuvers, including “wheel spins and donuts.”

He added: “Not only does speed pose a serious risk of physical damage, it also creates significant noise distress affecting everyone.”

The group is calling on the Highways Department of Essex County Council to introduce one of many measures, including the implementation of a ‘no motor vehicles except for access’ zone.

Other suggested measures include the implementation of a maximum speed limit of 20 mph, or even road bumps.

An Essex Highways spokesperson said: “The best way to get things done is to speak to your local Essex County Councilor who can raise the issue at the next Local Highways panel.

“Any traffic management problem raised within the local roads committee can then be investigated.

“We also advise you to report any antisocial or unsafe behavior on the road to Essex Police.”

Anyone who sees antisocial behavior can report it to the police by calling 101 or 999 in an emergency.

POLICE stopped 60 vehicles during a car rally in an industrial area last night.

This is the latest action after months of reporting on anti-social behavior around major events at Calmore Industrial Estate.

And it comes less than 24 hours after police carried out active patrols in the area to “try to combat” some of the problems.

On Saturday evening, agents from Totton and the New Forest team, as well as traffic police officers, stopped each of the vehicles that came to the estate.

Tickets were issued and drivers were questioned accordingly, officers said.

And they said they would be present at all future events, in an effort to deter any further anti-social behavior.

A Totton Police spokesperson said: ‘We have been proactively patrolling the Calmore industrial area following reports of a nearby car encounter.

“Over 60 cars pulled up and we spoke to drivers, explaining the impact of noise levels caused by events like these on the local community.

“Further updates will be available in the following posts, but rest assured, we intend to be present at any future events, deterring any anti-social behavior.”

The problems have been going on for months.

In August, calls were made for more to be done to prevent dozens of people from gathering for car meetings in Calmore.

This came after officers found more than 100 people gathered with their vehicles, including one driving dangerously, making donuts near and near people standing, officers reported.

At the time, Totton North Conservative adviser Arthur Davis said, “I’m not happy with [these car meets] at all.

“We have to solve it.

“The police did some work getting up there, but the problem seems to continue. I do not know the answer.

“I hope the police find something.

“It’s not good for the industrial area, it’s not good for Calmore and it’s not good for the people who live there.

“The noise must be horrible. It cannot be tolerated. ”

And in July, police issued a warning after a similar incident.

It was reported that “60 to 70” vehicles were seen rounded up and driving dangerously through the Calmore industrial estate after weeks of reports of misconduct in the area.

A resident responded at the time, saying “It’s been months now – sort out the little runners please.”
