Due to Newcastle City Council reducing spending - Newcastle's City Pool is facing closure.
WE ARE PROPOSING THAT THE FORMER BALLROOM KNOWN TO MANY AS 'THE CRYSTAL' OR 'TIFFANY'S' IS RE-OPENED TO PROVIDE TRADITIONAL THEMED EVENTS SUCH AS; LIVE ENTERTAINMENT, MODERN JIVE, BALLROOM DANCING, THEMED 70's & 60's NIGHTS ETC, AIMED PRIMARILY AT THE OVER 30's AGE GROUP.
RECENT PROPOSALS TO DEVELOP THE SITE NOW SEEM UNLIKELY AND AS A RESULT, THE BUILDING COULD CONTINUE TO FALL INTO DISREPAIR. PREVIOUS INTERVIEWS WITH THE SENTINEL AND SIGNAL RADIO HAVE NOW RESULTED IN THE OWNERS CONSIDERING THIS PROPOSAL.
In past years P!NK has come to Newcastle and had sell out shows, but with the 2013 tour upcoming, many people have been shocked to find that there are only Sydney shows for us Nova's.
The Callaghan Campus of the University of Newcastle has 24,652 students (980 of whom live on campus), 2,723 permanent staff and 2,478 part time staff. There are 8 doctors working in the University Health Service.
However, due to a peculiarity in the pharmacy approval rules it does not have a pharmacy on-campus to serve the needs of the students and staff.
In order to get a pharmacy on campus we must convince the Minister for Health that approving a pharmacy is in the public interest and that the university community is being left without reasonable access to Pharmaceutical Benefits and get her to exercise the Discretionary Power of approval.
Please sign the petition to show the minister your support!
Informed consent is standard practice for all medication, and one of the key reasons why most of Western Europe has ruled against fluoridation. With water fluoridation we are allowing governments to do to whole communities (forcing people to take a medicine irrespective of their consent) what individual doctors cannot do to individual patients.
Put another way: Does a voter have the right to require that their neighbor ingest a certain medication (even if it is against that neighbor’s will)?
No disease, not even tooth decay, is caused by a “fluoride deficiency.”(NRC 1993; Institute of Medicine 1997, NRC 2006). Not a single biological process has been shown to require fluoride. On the contrary there is extensive evidence that fluoride can interfere with many important biological processes. Fluoride interferes with numerous enzymes (Waldbott 1978). In combination with aluminum, fluoride interferes with G-proteins (Bigay 1985, 1987).
Such interactions give aluminum-fluoride complexes the potential to interfere with signals from growth factors, hormones and neurotransmitters (Strunecka & Patocka 1999; Li 2003). More and more studies indicate that fluoride can interfere with biochemistry in fundamental ways (Barbier 2010).
Numerous councils have cut weekly refuse collections to cut costs. We are concerned that Labour councillors in Newcastle are developing plans in secret to cut our bin collections to fortnightly and this petition is one part of our campaign to save the weekly bin collection.

Newcastle City Council has proposed that 500 houses are built on agricultural land between Lemington Rise and Blucher.

Never before has Newcastle seen a venue like The Kensington, a high-end establishment where Novocastrians can at last, socialise in style. But never before has there been so much unnecessary controversy surrounding the opening of a venue such as this.
The question that needs to be answered is: WHY? Why is there such negativity surrounding this venue, that sets the highest standard of entertainment venue in Newcastle?
Why has there been fear tactics implemented onto a venue that hasn't even had a chance to prove itself, nor encountered any negative events on its premises?
And most importantly, why are the bureaucrats and politicians dictating to the people of Newcastle that they cannot have what is rightfully theirs? And why are they stopping the opening of a venue that will provide a safe and controlled environment for people to socialise?
The people of Newcastle NEED a new place to meet their friends and socialise, that is clear. Newcastle needs to grow in its culture and needs a venue to create change to the limited offering that is currently available to young people of Newcastle. The support has been overwhelming along the way, and now it is your opportunity to help us harness this in the fight to KEEP THE KENSINGTON.
By signing this petition, your voice will be heard, we need 10,000 legitimate names of supporters to make this count, and we need it now! Once we have reached our goal of 10,000 names we will send our petition straight to Barry O'Farrell and his Government to prove that the people of Newcastle can have a voice, and that it counts.
The Arts Council has axed Side Gallery as a revenue client in its ‘National Portfolio’. The reasons for the decision are:
1. The gallery is part of a collective and therefore doesn’t have a board;
2. The gallery needs Arts Council funding and therefore isn’t sustainable;
3. There are too many galleries dedicated to humanist documentary photography in Side’s geographical location.
This flies in the face of the fact that the collective has continued to deliver what is unquestionably the strongest cultural legacy created in the North East over the past 40 years.
Unlike many Arts organisations, its egalitarian collective governance has meant Side Gallery has never approached the Arts Council or Northern Arts for a bail-out. It is the only gallery in the country dedicated to documentary photography.
In May 2008, former chairman of Newcastle United Football Club, Chris Mort announced plans for Leazes Corner, at St James' Park stadium, Newcastle to become a 'singing corner' for fans.
Mort told the Newcastle Chronicle: "Over the course of the year I’ve spoken to lots of fans about how we can improve things at St James’s Park. Two themes have regularly cropped up in those conversations."
"One was somehow creating a section in the ground where like-minded fans – who enjoy singing – can come together to generate a great atmosphere and get behind the team for 90 minutes."
Thus, the singing section at Leazes Corner was endorsed by Newcastle United Football Club and embraced by the fans. Many supporters, particularly those who currently hold season tickets in Leazes Corner feel that the corner is a success and the atmosphere in the stand is one of the best things about the home match experience.
N.B. Please specify if you are currently a season ticket holder at St James' Park within the comments section, including the area/stand in which you sit. This will help us to identify the strength of feeling within existing season ticket holders.
On Wednesday 8th December 2010 The Evening Chronicle suddenly and without warning shut down its entire forum leaving its contributors,many who had been members for years,without a voice.This was due to a tiny minority who for reasons known only to themselves chose to breach T&CS or post abusively.
They did not reflect the greater majority of members who enjoyed and contributed positively to the forums. And these contributors were given no indication that they were about to lose their forum.
It seems grossly unfair that so many are being punished for the actions of so few.People in The North East now have no means to have their say in their own local area.
In November 1981, 29 years ago almost to the day, a seventeen year old kid named Paul “Poncho” Henderson was found dead on the catwalk under the Centennial bridge in Miramichi, New Brunswick. And for 29 years his family have been denied both respect and justice in the loss of their son and brother.
From the time the body was discovered the police appeared determined to shrug this boys death off as some sort of accident or the result of misadventure. The head investigating RCMP officer at the time attributed the cause of death to a “fall” despite the fact that the body was positioned in such a way that no fall could result in and in a spot where there was nowhere to fall from. Add to that the discovery of this kids sneakers neatly placed about 50 meters from the body further along the catwalk. Paul’s family were poor…his mother, a single mom, was struggling to raise her 5 sons on social assistance.
The “lack of justice” system ran right over this woman and her family… they weren’t even given the dignity of being asked to identify the body of their lost son and brother and the funeral home where Paul was prepared for burial took the liberty of sealing the casket before the family even got to see the body. I doubt you or I would accept such disrespectful and hurtful treatment if it were our lost loved one.
Newcastle United FC are an English Football Club with a long and illustrious tradition. They are in the biggest and best football league in the world and have had many managers over the past decades but it is now time to provide stability to the club by providing a long-term contract to their existing, and well respected manager, Chris Hughton.
NSW Health recently decided that 3rd Year Nursing Students cannot apply for post-graduate Midwifery places for the following year.
Many students are just completing their nursing degrees in order to go into Midwifery, and will be forced into New Graduate nursing places instead of fulfilling their dreams. This will be very costly for NSW Health, as it is a significant use of resources to look after newly graduated nurses in their first year. These resources would be better spent on graduates who wish to be nurses, not those who were forced to use it as a stepping stone to midwifery.
With the new National Education standards about to come into effect, it is likely that these students will now have to endure another 3 years of study, in a separate Bachelor's degree, in order to become midwives. This is extremely unfair on them, and is happening only because they graduate in the middle of a messy, ill-thought out change in Nurse and Midwife Registration in Australia.
University of Newcastle Students learned this only weeks after learning that the Graduate Diploma had been cancelled at that uni, without their knowledge, a double whammy for these students - they can't go through their own university, and can't go into the correspondence course either! This also means there will be a 2-3 year gap in midwife graduates in the Hunter region - is this really what we want with the shortage of midwives?
TO GET THE MESSAGE ACROSS TO THE PEOPLE OF THE NORTH EAST ABOUT THE ENGLISH DEFENCE LEAGUE AND WHAT WE STAND FOR, PEACEFULLY PROTESTING ABOUT SHARIA LAW AND MUSLIM EXTREMISTS WHO OPENLY PREACH HATE AGAINST US.
ALTHOUGH NEWCASTLE HASN'T A PROBLEM WITH MUSLIM EXTREMISM AS SUCH THE MESSAGE HAS TO GET ACROSS THAT IT'S MORE THAN LIKELY ON ITS WAY... HELP US HELP YOU AND KEEP OUR CITYS, TOWNS AND STREETS SAFE FOR OUR CHILDREN AND YOUR CHILDREN'S CHILDREN. NO SURRENDER TO AL QEADA.
According to the Evening Chronicle on 25 March 2010 (http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/north-east-news/todays-evening-chronicle/2010/03/25/staff-hopping-mad-at-council-plot-to-kill-rabbits-72703-26108140/), Newcastle City Council intend on killing the rabbits that currently populate the land around the Civic Centre, as they are "causing damage to the soil and plants on the grassy area next to St Thomas’ Church".
Joe McElderry's success on the X Factor has highlighted one important thing - the X Factor auditions don't come to Newcastle!
Tony Horne In The Morning on Metro Radio spoke to Joe about this - and Joe is fully with us - he's joining the fight to bring the X Factor 2010 auditions to Newcastle - but we need your help too.
Quoting Joe: "There's lots of talented people in the North East. A lot of my friends are singers and are amazing so I think they should do auditions in Newcastle." Hear Joe talking to us here: http://filesocial.com/o1r59m
TV companies work well in advance, so we need to get this campaign up and running now so that we can lobby the producers in time!
You can listen to Tony Horne In The Morning, weekdays from 6am and Sundays from 10, on Metro Radio.
Newcastle United is for sale at a maximum of £100m - or at least that's how much it takes to "look at the books".
If we are to get what we all really want and turn it into a Barca model of elections and fan ownership, now is the best time to see if we can raise the money.
The Council is proposing to change the use of the second pool located in the centre of Newcastle. Its new use will be a youth facility for disadvantaged children. It involves the renovation of the old disused school building behind the city pool and a change of use of the second pool.
We are not opposed to the provision of new facilities for the people of Newcastle but we are against the removal of them. The loss of this city centre pool would have massive implications on Newcastle public and competitive swimming. There are no plans to replace this facility. The pool is regularly used by swimmers, sports groups, schools and churches. Its loss would be detrimental to people of Newcastle.
A youth development project would be a welcome addition to Newcastle but in the correct location and not to the detriment of the minimal sports facilities currently available to Geordie's at present.

Every day is a Habib Beye day! He's the saviour of the Mags back four, the most committed member of the squad (and he didn't even want to come), the new Rob Lee, and the only member of the current squad I'd consider putting on the back of my shirt.
In homage to our fantastic right back, we think we should rename our coastal town in his honour - Whitley Beye!!
*P/S don't forget to leave your e-mail adress to be kept informed on the movement's progress!!

On the 1st May 2004 Easyjet started to fly from Newcastle to Berlin Schonefeld.
From my own experience the planes where nearly full everytime and from what I could see from forums this route was quite popular. In October 2006 Easyjet suspended the route.
I tried to contact their customer service but I didn't receive a reply. Sadly they suspended other routes (to Budapest, Copenhagen and Nice) too and later introduced the route to Nice again.
The majority of destinations from Newcastle are in Spain and it is time to get back some culture.
A child day saver ticket on the metro is £1 but when people get to 17 years they have to pay adult fares, which for a day saver is £4.30 and £1.90 to travel one stop compared to 30p for under 16's.
Freddy Shepherd, Newcastle United chairman, is dragging the club under!
The club needs a new chairman to take it further, and to get out of the current rut that Shepherd has put us in.
For a long time here in Newcastle NSW Australia we have put up with 56k Internet, at an increased price i might add. We recently got what Telstra would call "affordable" ADSL, but this comes with a very high price, and a very small download limit.
What I propose is that Newcastle get access to Cable Internet, with unlimited downloads, as Sydney gets at a low price.
