The "Mother's Day Proclamation" which was one of the early calls to celebrate Mother's Day, was was written by Julia Ward Howe in 1870, and in it she stated:
"Let women now leave all that may be left of home for a great and earnest day of counsel. Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead"
As another author wrote, "I'll celebrate with you as long as you will FIRST mourn with me". It is the combination of the two that lends itself to the true meaning of "Mothers Day".
There was this song and video for $0.25 fountain drinks for Mobile on the Run when the Cardinals scored six or more runs. The tune was great and catchy. A new year came for the St. Louis Cardinals, and of course, they changed. Simply put, this petition is to bring the old version back (the "Six- It's the fingers on your hand plus your thumba" version).
It was much better. And by changing back to the better version, one can say that it would be more effective.
Last season a new initative was started by the SFA in relation to introducing video evidence. If Gordon Smith and the SFA are serious in wanting to clean up the game in relation to simulation or career threatening challenges, as they have indeed indicated. Then they need to be consistent in their actions.
The Celtic supporters who have signed this petition are behind the SFA's initiative and call for Scottish Football’s governing body to act with clarity and consistently in order to keep the integrity of our game intact.
The law should simply state you can not pay cash, receive gift cards, or gift certificates, it should not say what points a person can take out and what or how much they can redeem with their point cards. It's not gambling it is for Amusement.
Yu-Gi-Oh cards are same as gambling. The prices are unaffordable, and Yu-Gi-Oh is making a huge profit, which is from allowances from children and countless dollars from teenagers and even adults.
The story is not over yet. The cards come in an enclosed pack where the chances to get "good cards" are completely random.
As a result, people invest thousands of dollars on stupid pieces of paper junk.
1/3 of the way through the 2007 season, new Louisville coach Steve Kragthorpe isn't getting the job done. Louisville is 2-2 with wins against only Murray State and Middle Tennessee State.
Louisville has thus far lost to bitter rival University of Kentucky, and suffered through an embarrassing loss to perennial Big East bottom dweller Syracuse.
It's not only the fans that have noticed a difference in the Card's performance this season. After the Syracuse loss, both quarterback Brian Brohm and center Eric Wood gave criticism of Kragthorpe and his coaching methods.
Brian Brohm: "We’ve got to have more of a sense of urgency out there. Maybe we’ve got to have that in practice."
Eric Wood: "I don’t think we prepared well enough for this game."
Athletic Director Tom Jurich continues to stand behind his long time friend, Kragthorpe.
"There will be no spin from this program. No excuses," Jurich said. "We will rebuild this."
The key word in that quote is rebuild. Louisville is a team coming off a one loss season, conference championship and BCS bowl win. 2007 should be a continuation of last year's success, not a rebuilding year.
As the Stanford University article states "American corporation IBM was the largest computer supplier in South Africa throughout the years of apartheid. In 1978 alone, IBM's South African sales jumped 250%; total annual sales amounted to approximately three hundred million dollars in 1982. Not only did IBM contribute tremendous computing power to the South African apartheid system, but of the fifteen hundred South African workers employed by IBM in 1982..."
It is clearly deeply disturbing that a company that has directly or indirectly supported the apartheid system through technology be allowed to function let alone administer this project.
Please show your support for our friend, Rabia Benhmida, and sign this online petition demanding that the motion for her deportation be rescinded and that she be allowed to be in the U.S., be given permanent resident status, green cards and the right to apply for US citizenship.
Then we ask you to pass this petition on to your family and friends.
As of February 1, 2004, Wal-Mart has become the first US retailer to separate credit card transactions from "check" card transactions. Wal-Mart will no longer accept Mastercard debit cards when used with a signature (like a credit card). The reason: Wal-Mart claims the costs are too high.
Although Wal-Mart says that only 1% of transactions involve these cards, that's still a ton of customers and revenue, especially when you're the world's largest retailer. By using a PIN number, debit Mastercard customers forego "zero-liability" protection for fradulent use (yes, it is possible to skim debit cards and record PIN numbers), lose any cash rewards offered for "credit" transactions, and may be charged a fee by their bank for a PIN transaction. If they don't want to use the card at the register, cardholders must use the store ATM and pay the fees imposed by the ATM owner and the customer's bank. In other words, Wal-Mart has indirectly passed the cost of the transaction on to the consumer (though they claim their prices will be lower thanks to their decision) and is pocketing the profit.
In fact, accepting not accepting debit Mastercard doesn't make business sense. Besides angering customers and losing sales, they are still accepting Visa's check card, which carries about the same processing fees as a Mastercard (it makes some wonder if Visa and Wal-Mart aren't collaborating to increase Visa's customer share--it is possible that Wal-Mart was paid to make this decision). Why accept one debit card and not another at the same rate, as is the case with most merchants (Mastercard and Visa are offered as a package deal)? Also, if customers use checks instead of a debit Mastercard, then Wal-Mart runs the risk of receiving a bad check, which costs money to collect.
Obviously, this policy hurts consumers and it also hurts the company, which the cost-cutting executives fail to see. Wal-Mart will learn that being first isn't necessary the best. Many online complaint letters are already circulating, showing that customers are reacting. Wal-Mart needs to drop this policy as soon as possible by trying harder to negotiate with Mastercard and by not playing favorites with Visa.
Wizards of the Coast has a very successfull Online version of thier popular game Magic the Gathering. Decipher has an Online version of thier Lord of the Rings CCG in Beta Testing.
The way these work is, instead of buying physical cards you buy and trade virtual cards and can play people all over the world.
Magic the Gathering is doing extremly well, and I am in currently in the Lord of the Rings Beta and believe it will do just as well with fans of that game.
We the fans of the Yu-Gu-Oh card game feel Konami/Upper Deck should develop a similar Online game for Yu-Gu-Oh using the cards and rules from the physical card game. None of the crap of the single player Playstation games.
If you would like to see a Yu-Gu-Oh CCG Online please sign this petition.
In 1999, Inkworks purchased the legal rights to produce trading cards for the television series "Charmed." Shortly thereafter, promotional cards announcing the release of season one in early 2000 were printed. However, the release date was set back and fans were forced to wait until December 2000 to purchase the eagerly anticipated card series. In every box appeared a "case loader" card which announced the arrival of the second set, season two Charmed cards "coming soon."
Currently on Inkworks' website [http://www.inkworkscards.com/products/coming.html], production for many other series are planned under their one-release-per-month policy, but Charmed is nowhere to be seen on their schedule. Other TV series have card sets released only a few months after the season has aired in completion, but Charmed fans who avidly awaited the first set to be released despite the year long delay are now facing the fact that they may never be produced because Inkworks claims the first set was a hassle to make. As it is, the set was trimmed down from the intended 90-card set to a 72-card set because of production difficulties. As long as Inkworks holds contractual rights to the series, no other manufacturer can produce the Charmed trading cards that Inkworks originally promised.

Each holiday season Sophia my wife and I wanted to do many things to try and share the spirit of the season with needy families, children and abandoned elderly people we know of in our neighbourhood and at many other places. Sometimes we managed doing small things like organizing some old clothes, greeting cards, toys etc to be distributed.
