As if coconut wireless wasn’t enough, we now have total wireless connection, and boy it is the wildest, weirdest, open, wireless platform we can ever get. It’s a crazy world out there!

Fiji 7s magic

Norman Yee, Nadi

Words fail me as we toppled team after team to win not only the series, but to win back to back in Paris! And the accolades bestowed upon several individuals show our skills as the best of the best.

Also we have been able to win some kick-offs, found a couple who could kick between the posts and one player did kick cross field to score.

As for Japan next year there is no need to change a winning combination. No need for overseas players either, unless we lose these champions to other countries.

FRU please do your best to retain our heroes.

Our grateful thanks also to the coach and managerial team. Kudos to all.

To show our appreciation we would not hesitate to contribute to a treasure chest set up for them as suggested by another reader.

 

Social media

Simon Hazelman, Savusavu

As if coconut wireless wasn’t enough, we now have total wireless connection, and boy it is the wildest, weirdest, open, wireless platform we can ever get. It’s a crazy world out there!

It sure seems like privacy is no longer a personal choice!

We are now getting to see very personal discussions, pictures, and movies making its rounds on the net. People’s lives have become more public because of social networking.

While there is a positive aspect to social networking, we continue to see more private information being posted about one another, the kind of information that no one would want getting out.

We need to learn where to draw the line and we need to be much more careful with what we say and post.

Such negative effects can hurt both physically and mentally. Some things are better left off the grid!

The coconut wireless days are over and have been taken over by cyber space!

Be aware, be selective and be very careful!

 

Renewable Projects and Tariffs

Sukha Singh, Labasa

I just like to ask Mr Hasmukh Patel and all the other electrical engineers why can’t they use Fiji Sugar Co-operation steam generating plants with a little bit of upgrading and installing a few bagasse dryers similar to wood veneer driers and produce cheaper electricity all year round.

 

Rental freeze on residential rent

Dorsami Naidu, Nadi

I understand that this has been in force for some considerable period of time and landlords in breach have been vigorously identified and dealt with under the relevant regulations.

I would just like to know if this freeze also covers residential properties administered by the Director of Lands and the iTaukei Land Trust Board.

At the moment both these bodies are and have continued to impose rental increases on their residential properties and held back giving consent for various purposes unless the Lessee agreed to the increase.

I have tried getting a response from Lands Department, but to no avail.

A letter in your column may help to elicit a response.
