Hi guys I’m in my second year of a HND and have been asked to carry out a research project. For this I have devised a question which I must look into. I wish to make it easier for people who have limited mobility to be able to control lighting, heating and appliances. The easiest method for me to reach a wide range of people with this disability is through social media and would be very grateful if you guys could spare 5 minutes of your time and fill out this questionnaire. The questionnaire can be filled out at https://apps.facebook.com/my-surveys/bqbkdo Thank you in advance for your time and commitment.

"When government entities discuss their plans for responding to natural disasters, people with disabilities have a history of being off the radar. Hurricanes Katrina, Irene and Sandy have shown that the disabled still remain at considerable risk during catastrophic events. While change may not be on the near horizon, it is coming, thanks to efforts by the disability community and a recent decision by the federal judiciary. But until this happens, people with disabilities must continue to watch out for themselves and urge the appropriate agencies to take measureable action."

We are a family trying to share our positive stories about travelling with our son who has Cerebral Palsy through our website www.havewheelchairwilltravel.net and through our facebook page. We want to give people positive messages to encourage people to give things a go despite having a disability. We tell stories about the places we go, things we try and equipment we find that is helpful. Sometimes we will tell a story about when our son was younger and how we managed a particular stage. It is all about fun and motivation. We are hoping to build awareness and make changes to the tourism industry in particular, if we can grow our following. Thanks and kind regards Julie Jones (Have Wheelchair Will Travel)

I'm not gonna ask for friend requests or even mention what the product is, here, so that I don't get any grief over speculation, being accused of fraudulent posting, etc. I am taking it, selling it and fibro is 90% gone. Just FOLLOW me and read what I post about. I offer my links to my website, attaching them to recipes, jokes, quotes... and I post tons of testimonies from real people having wonderful results. If there's any doubt in the testimonies, I can put anyone in touch with these individuals! Just please, try my product for 1 month. You'll see. Have a wonderful night, everyone!
