We have a pristine country, a pristine city that we all dub the nature isle and nature does not deal with carbon monoxide because it is a dangerous gas”. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless toxic gas which can threatened the health of individuals when exposed to it.The symptoms of this exposure include headaches, dizziness, disorientation, nausea and fatigue which are often mistaken for the flu. “We have seen an increase number of people complain about migraine headaches, an increased number of people suffering from cancers. If we really take some time off and make research, we can maybe come to a conclusion that it might be because of an increase number of vehicles that we have in Dominica that would give us quite a bit more carbon monoxide”.According to him, many of these reconditioned vehicles were not made for our shores and it might be more a better decision health wise to purchase a new vehicle. He believes that if his suggestion for the increase is implemented, it may lead to a reduction in several illnesses currently affecting the country’s population.“What it would do is make people evaluate between purchasing a new vehicle and a reconditioned vehicle. A reconditioned vehicle has less of life span than that of a new vehicle and I believe that if you’re increasing the cost of the environmental levy, I am almost sure it will bring it close as possible to the cost of a new vehicle”. The government implemented an environmental levy nearly eight years ago on vehicles which were manufactured after 2005. Vehicles less than five years pay a rate of 1% while those older than 5 years pay $3000.00.Dominica Vibes News
Controversial British boxer Tyson Fury has tipped Joseph Parker to end Anthony Joshua’s unbeaten streak if the duo meet in a heavyweight showdown next year.The representatives of both boxers are in talks over a potential fight and fellow heavyweight Fury has already revealed where he will pitch his tent.Speaking on the highly anticipated bout with iFL TV, Fury said: “Can Parker beat him? Yes, he can. Parker is as tough as a brick and as game as a pebble and is young and ambitious with no expectations on him.“Nobody expects Parker to beat Joshua – it’s all about the weightlifter, let’s go in there and blast a few out – bash, bash, bash.“There are no expectations on young Joseph, he’s a young man coming for a pay cheque isn’t he, so he can’t lose. It’s a no-lose situation. If he loses to Joshua, “oh, he was supposed to lose”. But if he wins he becomes legendary and then I’ll have to come back and give him a boxing lesson, which I don’t want to because he’s my mate.“Parker can beat Joshua, he can knock him out. Joshua’s chin is dodgy. We know this for a fact.“We’ve seen Klitschko drag him off the canvas, wobble him, shake him, rock him, the young Daniel (Dubois) 20-year-old is supposed to have knocked him out in sparring.“I’ve heard plenty of knockout videos and plenty of knockout rumours, and dropped and all that, So we know he can be hurt and hit because we’ve seen it on TV. Klitschko’s done him, a man 40 odd year-old.“This isn’t Muhammad Ali, this is a man built-up believing in his own hype and a man who is going to come crashing down to earth very, very soon.” he concluded.Joshua has won all of his 20 professional fights while Fury, also undefeated in his 25 bouts, will know his boxing fate when he attends a National Anti-Doping Panel hearing in December in a bid to overturn the ban imposed on him.[tps_title][/tps_title]Related
