Hero/Villain of the Day-18.01.05

Heroes: European Commission:The European Commission has today announced that a sci-fi radar which can detect imminent car crashes-and apply your brakes-should be available within six months.
Experts say the system has the potential to halve the numbers of road accident casualties in Europe by 2010.

I am very impressed by these plans as road accidents are a constant menace.See,I'm not completely against the EU!

Villain: Rusch:The medical equipment firm,which is based in Lurgan,Co Armagh announced today it was to close with the loss of 270 jobs-and the workers from the factory have been told to train the people taking their jobs.
The jobs are being transferred to factories in Mexico and Malaysia in a bid to cut costs.

"The company wants employees facing redundancy to train people who are taking their jobs off them," said Michael Mulholland,regional organiser of the GMB union.

"As you can expect,they are taking this very badly.They feel they have been let down.A lot of people have been working here for the past 20 years,"he added.

I'm sure they are taking it very badly.How disgraceful.
