2009 Sewage Issues

During Dubai's economic boom in 2009 the city's rapid growth meant that it was stretching its existing sewage treatment infrastructure to its limits. Sewage from areas of Dubai not connected to the municipal piped network at the time was collected daily from thousands of septic tanks across the city and driven by tankers to the city's only sewage treatment plant at Al-Awir. Because of the long queues and delays, some tanker drivers resorted to illegally dumping the effluent into storm drains or behind dunes in the desert resulting in much controversy. The result of sewage dumped into storm drains was that it flowed directly into the Persian Gulf, near to the city's prime swimming beaches. Doctors warned that tourists using the beaches ran the risk of contracting serious illnesses like typhoid and hepatitis.

Dubai's municipality says that it is committed to trying to catch the culprits and has imposed fines of up to $25,000 as well as threatening to confiscate tankers if dumping persists. The municipality maintains that test results show samples of the water are "within the standard".

As of September 2009, these queues and illegal dumping are no longer reported to be a problem.

Travel's the best kind of education. It confirms or "un-confirms" our perceptions, it shows how the other half lives. It shows there are other places to contemplate beside our navel. It can also make us learn how to do things AND how not to do things as shown in other countries. We pretty much all know how it's going in North Korea. Not exactly heaven on earth. But, I'd still love to see for myself and if possible, though it may not be allowed, speak to the people like I did before the communist wall went down or in today's Cuba. Very interesting.
I'm sure Justice ha ha Dale is not what we'd call a big traveller.
I've been to Nuevo Laredo before. I do not need to go any further south into Mexico to see if it gets any better. Every place I have been in Canada has been great except for the people in Quebec who seem insulted if you don't know enough French to converse with them. Unless you can speak English with a German accent!

Nothing that Justice Roberts said implies that taxpayers, in general, are lawbreakers.

Then tell us mobarf, exactly what is it that we're being taxed on? If you truly believe that is a "tax" then you're ignorant! LMAO! But we already know that! LMAO!

You are assessed a tax penalty for being a free-rider. The IRS also assesses a tax penalty if you are late in filing. Both are tax penalties under the tax code.

A tax penalty for free-riders is a tax penalty for free riders, even if you call the requirement to have insurance a "mandate."

It's not rocket science.

What bullroar. So you had a bad experience. Everyone has one now and then. Americans are the 2nd most numerous tourists in Québec. Why do they keep coming back? In agglomerations, almost everyone speaks English, albeit with an accent. And most are not insulted if you only speak English. That German accent thing you made up.

Been. I liked it. I wouldn't want to be a foreign worker, mind you. Treated like dirt. Shameful. Women are treated like ours were 70 years or so ago. That's still 1300 years ahead of Saudi Arabia. No, they're not full of it. How can this "guy" brand a whole country just like that? Every man, woman and child is full of it?

Oh, Rogue, did you want me to tell the gov't to change its (for LRS : don't go looking if "its" is correct, because it's "it". Flummoxed? It's its own rule. It's okay.)) bad habits or else?

Er, I'm sure Wichita and its suburbs is a nice place for nice people like you, but you should try to get out more.
I do, I spend about three or four months camping out in Kentucky, no TV, no phone, no running water, no electricity, just me the woods and the wildlife! Hell, you should see some of the wildlife!!
Now I do have some pleasures that a city doesn't have, my own swimming hole and a cold spring for my beer and drinking/cooking water, don't like my beer too cold it spoils the taste.
Yep, if I didn't have obligations here I would disappear completely.

On sin-taxes, what if you don't smoke or drink, are you still fined for not buying them, so if you do not buy insurance you are fined even though you are never sick and as it stands now there are no preexisting condition clauses, so what is the use of buying insurance until you get sick.
$1,200 a year is much cheaper than $8,000-$10,000 and that will be going-up.

No, more like what Boston was doing until a few years ago when they put a large sewer pipe way out into the ocean. Sewage will be dispersed into the water and food chain but garbage that contains plastic, etc. will float around on the surface and can not, we hope, be eaten by sea animals.
Ah Jacques, Do you ever remember taking a test where the give you a round peg and you have to put it in one of three hole. One square, another triangular and then one round. Which hole did you try first?

I don't think we in America ever treated our women the way Muslims treat their women.
If someone in America 200 years ago took his 18 y/o daughter to the village square and slit her throat because she dishonored her family, would the people applaud or hang the father?
