Record: August – the hottest month from the last 100 years
August 2014 was the hottest August on record for global average temperatures over land and ocean surfaces, reports the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), quoted by AFP.
Also, August 2014 marked the 38th consecutive August with a temperature above the 20th century average, runs NOAA.

The last below-average global temperature for August occurred in 1976.

The combined average global land and ocean surface temperature for the June–August period was also record high for this period, at 0.71°C above the 20th century average of 16.4°C, beating the previous record set in 1998.  

With records dating back to 1880, the global temperature across the world's land and ocean surfaces for August 2014 was 0.75°C higher than the 20th century average of 15.6°C . This makes August 2014 the warmest August on record for the globe since records began in 1880, beating the previous record set in 1998.  

The combined average global land and ocean surface temperature for January–August was 0.68°C above the 20th century average of 14.0°C the third highest for this eight-month period on record.  

All years from the XXI-st century (2001-2013) are in top 15 of hottest years from the world and the warmest years were 2010, 2005 and 1998, said NOAA.
In average, the temperature on the Globe increased by 0,06  degrees per decade since 1880 until 2013, but the rise was higher after 1960: indeed, the increase was of 0,15 degrees per decade between 1964 and 2013.

Carmelia Albu – Ombudsman of the Public Broadcaster „Teleradio-Moldova”, in the service of community

Ombudsman service is an independent source of information, explanation and analysis of the Public Broadcaster’s programs and adherence to European standards and practices of broadcasting programs’ development.

Ombudsman is a mediator who handles complaints between a televiewer /radio-listener or a group of people and the Broadcaster. Ombudsman replies to the questions of TV viewers and Radio-listeners, receives and reviews complaints from people.

“Ombudsman” was first used in its modern sense in 1809 when the Swedish Parliament established the office of Justitieombudsman, who was to look after citizens’ interests in their dealings with government.

Later, in 1988, a similar service was established in media in France. It was a real "explosion” that caused the appearance of similar services in other world countries.
