Festive season

Pom residents warned to behave: Police

Police have passed on a very important message for residents to welcome the New Year responsibly.

In a briefing this morning with the NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Perou N’dranou and his senior officers, Port Moresby residents have been warned to refrain from intolerable behaviors that will put them in trouble with the law.

NCD Police boss said for the residents to continue to behave and celebrate the same way they did during the Christmas period.

No tolerance for drunk driving: NCD Police

This was reiterated by NCD Superintendent for Operations, Michael Tilae.

“This is a straight warning to those people who like drinking on moving vehicles around the city.”

Police will be targeting this area very carefully during random road blocks and vehicles checks.

Tactical road blocks will be set up in critical areas considering that no liquor ban has been imposed in the nation’s capital.

“Police will make sure that road blocks are set purposely to make the roads safer for the drivers, pedestrians and commuters to move around in the city.”

Facebook lurking makes you miserable, says study

A University of Copenhagen study suggests excessive use of social media can create feelings of envy.

It particularly warns about the negative impact of "lurking" on social media without connecting with anyone.

The study suggests taking a break from using social media.

The study of more than 1,000 participants, mostly women, says that "regular use of social networking such as Facebook can negatively affect your emotional well-being and satisfaction with life".
