Schoolbag- a potential danger for pupils’ spine
Spinal deformities, impaired posture or disability - these are some of the risks the children experience when they carry heavy and uncomfortable schoolbags. Doctors warn parents to carefully choose this school accessory. That's because in 2014 every fourth child was diagnosed with scoliosis.
Doctor in vertebrology, Nicolae Sauga said that the inappropriate schoolbags can seriously affect the spine. He recommended parents to choose schoolbags that do not endanger the health of children.
Students realize the danger when they carry inappropriate schoolbags. They say that the school bags should be both beautiful and should not affect the spine.
Currently, there are about 10 thousand children suffering from scoliosis in the Republic of Moldova.

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.
