According to the tourist authorities on the Balearic Island, there are already 4 lives and 30 accidents occurred on the island this year, and the "balconing' accident is reported every 2 days. It is indisputable that concerns need to be put on this issue. The hoteliers said most of the transgressors are people who were drunk or had taken heavy drugs. To tackle the problem, the hoteliers had participated in a campaign to combat loutishness, and they claimed that 'we will throw them out on the street if they do this kind of thing' as they are on the way to clean up hteir reputation.

My comment:
They must be too hyped up as so they forget about their personal safety. Crossing the leaps to get into the pool is something fun, provided you are just one floor above the pool and the pool is right below your balcony, and it is a safe one!

Yet, she paused and decided to hold herself back. Unfortunately, when she was walking away, she slipped and landed on rock on swallow water, with her ribs,arms, hips broken, and she lost her one kidney and spleen as well. The scene was so bloody that her face was broken into half. Her family transferred her from a hospital in melbourne to another hospital in Milan, as the new hospital has better experience in facial operations.
Tanis is recovering and she shows positive signs that gloat her family members. Some questions from her when she first wakes up are "was she a vegetable?","will she be able to have kids?" and "is her face and teeth fixable".
Glad that she is no longer in coma, and pray hard that she will recover soon, she was a pretty girl though.

Jetplace ordered to own up to adding fake profiles to dating site redhotpie

Jetplace, the owner of dating site has been forced by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) to admit their anti-competition activity that added approximately 1371 fake profiles to its ‘Uncut” section.

Jetplace used the non-bona fide profiles to send flirts or customised messages to the registered users on the websites. Now, Jetplace was ordered to disclose the deception. Many online dating sites have created some fake profiles to keep an eye on their websites, so did Jetplace. Jetplace claimed that those profiles were created for security purpose.

However, this reason failed to convince the ACCC chairman Graeme Samuel. Immediate action will be taken by ACCC to acknowledge the consumers about the deception. Anybody who registered with the dating site between December 2004 and November 2008 will be greeted with Jetplace’s admission to deception upon their log on. Besides, Jetplace is required to :
• send a copy of the notice to the email address of each of those users,
• implement a corporate trade practices law compliance program, and;
• pay ACCC costs.

Refunds will be offered to those users who could prove that they were misled into paying for access to the site.
