As you all know, Bristol has redistricted our elementary and middle schools. They closed some of the elementary schools to fill the two newly built schools in Forrestville and West Bristol with students and are shuffeling around most students within the district to different schools after the summer.
The number of students will not change within the district, however it has come to my attention that several of our teachers have gotten pink slips.
The board of education is pink slipping by seniority, meaning they will get rid of the newer teachers.
One of them is my son's Kindergarten Teacher at Edgewood Elementary, Miss N. She is a fantastic teacher, with a lot of compassion, enthusiasm and motivation for her job and her students. She is the kind of teachers we need to give our kids a great future. She cares about the school and about our kids. I believe the teachers should be based on ratings versus seniority.
I am calling on all Edgewood parents and residents of Bristol, CT and those that care about it, to please help me save Miss N. from being out of a job at the end of the summer.
Many more teachers have gotten pink slipped I am sure, but the number of students will not change after the summer, this would mean increase in class sizes, which also translates in less one on one time for teacher student interaction, so the ones that are behind already, will fall even further behind. Our kids education and future are on the line here.
Please help save our great teachers!
62. Save Fulford
The former Penistone Grammar School buildings Fulford, Weirfield and the stables and the site they are situated on are been sold for possible residential development, which would lead to the demolition of these buildings.
These buildings are an integral part of Penistone's social history and must be retained for future generations. Other alternatives for use and conversion need to be fully exhausted before this can be allowed to happen.
CBC Radio has recently announced that it will be eliminating Dispatches from its programing line-up in June '12. This is unacceptable. Dispatches is the only CBC Radio program that brings us in-depth coverage of issues and cultures from around the world.
C'est La Vie, on the other hand, is a French-language program which focuses on the music and culture of Quebec. C'est La Vie isn't a bad program but Radio-Canada, the national French-language broadcast arm of the CBC, provides identical content. Its loss would not be so keenly felt as that of Dispatches.
Dispatches brings us the world.
Michigan's Great Lakes have been providing the fresh water to most of the Michigan (and even other state) residents. But every year, more than 24 billion gallons of sewage that is untreated, gets poured into the Great Lakes every year. This forces many of the beaches to close and contaminated, which leads to "dead zones".
Many animals and plants are affected in negative ways and it is hurting our environment, especially our lakes, which will affect our daily life.
Εδώ και μερικά χρόνια (από τα σχέδια ακόμα της υποθαλάσσιας οδού στην παραλία της Θεσσαλονίκης) είναι στα πλάνα της πολιτείας η καταστροφή του πάρκου για skateboard που εντάσσεται στο γενικότερο χώρο του πάρκου του Φωκά. Μετά από πολλές επαφές και ομιλίες τους τελευταίους μήνες με Δημάρχους, Αντιδημάρχους, Αρχιτέκτονες (σχεδιαστή του πάρκου, μελετητή της νέας παραλίας και επιβλέπων των έργων),
και παρότι όπως ανακοινώθηκε ότι το να γίνει αλλαγή σχεδίων και να παραμείνει το πάρκο αντί να γίνει στην θέση του πάρκο σκύλων (όπως είναι προγραμματισμένο) δεν αλλάζει χρηματικά την δαπάνη η το χρονοδιάγραμμα των έργων, δεν δίνει κανένας το πράσινο φως να σταματήσουν οι εργασίες.
HELP TO SAVE OUR SKATEPARK
Το πάρκο του ¨Φωκά¨ είναι το πρώτο πάρκο στην Ελλάδα σχεδιασμένο και κατασκευασμένο αποκλειστικά για πατίνια (skateboard).
Κατασκευάστηκε με πρωτοβουλία του Δήμου Θεσσαλονίκης το 1984-85 και είναι φτιαγμένο από μπετόν.
Αν και το άθλημα του skateboard δεν ήταν ακόμα ευρέος γνωστό στην Ελλάδα εκείνη την εποχή παρόλα αυτά ο Δήμος Θεσσαλονίκης μπόρεσε να οραματιστή την εξελικτική πορεία του αθλήματος και με την κίνηση του αυτή κατάφερε να μεταδώσει το όραμα του στους νέους ξεκινώντας έτσι μια καινούργια εποχή για την πορεία του skateboard στην χώρα μας.
Παρόλο που το πάρκο ονομαζόταν εξαρχής πάρκο Φαλήρου, λόγο της περιοχής στην οποία άνηκε, στην πορεία των χρόνων υιοθέτησε το όνομα ¨Φωκά¨ μιας και τo κομμάτι του πάρκου που ήταν για πατίνια αποτελούσε προέκταση του παιδότοπου ¨Φωκά¨ που ήταν δωρεά του Οδυσσέα Φωκά και από τον οποίο είχε πάρει και το όνομά του.
Μπορεί το πάρκο μην έχει κάτι το ιδιαίτερο κατασκευαστικά και οι αρχικές του κλήσης να έχουν χαλάσει μετά την ανάπλαση του, αλλά όπως και να έχει είναι ένα μοναδικό πάρκο το οποίο εξυπηρετεί όλα τα επίπεδα αθλητών, έχει κυκλικό σχήμα με αποτέλεσμα να μπορούν να αθλούνται πολλά παιδιά ταυτόχρονα, είναι αρκετά μεγάλο ώστε να χωράνε επιπρόσθετες κατασκευές/ράμπες για να καλύψουν τις ανάγκες της εκάστοτε εκδήλωσης/διαγωνισμού, είναι το κεντρικότερο πάρκο της παραλίας με ασφαλή διέλευση από τις περισσότερες περιοχές της πόλης και τέλος είναι το πιο πολυσύχναστο πάρκο της παραλίας από την πρώτη μέρα κιόλας της δημιουργίας του.
Το πάρκο του ¨Φωκά¨ ως τώρα έχει ¨μεγαλώσει¨ πάνω από έξη γενιές skateboarders και έχει ¨βγάλει¨ σπουδαίους αθλητές, αλλά αυτή την στιγμή κινδυνεύει μιας και στα σχέδια της πολιτείας είναι να το γκρεμίσει στα πλαίσια της ανάπλαση της παραλίας την Θεσσαλονίκης.
Ο μοναδικός και υγιής τρόπος διεκδίκησης του πάρκου είναι να είμαστε όλοι καθημερινά εκεί παρόν δείχνοντας έτσι ότι το πάρκο έχει ακόμα ζωή και έχει σκοπό να φιλοξενήσει πολλές γενιές ακόμα.
WE ARE HERE TO STAY
MP Kate Hoey and a small group of residents are vigorously lobbying TfL bosses for a LIVE bus station in the square in the heart of Clapham Old Town. This scheme will involve up to six live bus stands with platforms, shelters, signage and commercial lighting, taking up the majority of the square and leaving the Old Town Square open to development as a transport hub.
The Clapham Regeneration Project (formerly Clapham Gateway Project) began with Venn St and was due to stretch down to the Old Town to include a landscaped public square and 4 ‘waiting only’ bus stands (parked up). It works logistically, aesthetically and is in tune with the community’s need for a smooth bus service. It’s TfL approved, funded and all ready to go.
The local community is unaware that this project is under threat.
We URGENTLY need you, the local community, our neighbours and local businesses to show support for the Clapham Regeneration Project. The plans implemented now will be in place for decades to come.
WE DISAGREE WITH THE PLANS FOR LIVE BUS STANDS AT CLAPHAM OLD TOWN AND WANT A SQUARE WHICH CREATES A COMMUNITY FOCAL POINT IN THE FORM OF A TOWN SQUARE, YET RETAINS THE SMOOTH RUNNING BUS SERVICE THAT IS VALUABLE TO OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY.
It was announced on March 2nd,2012 that Emily Fisher Charter School in Trenton, New Jersey will be closed June 29th. The reason is because the test scores put the school in the bottom three percent statewide.
The amount of dogs especially stafforshire bull terriers in rescue centres within wolverhampton and surrounding areas is disgusting. Most people find neutering costly.
Help for people on low incomes would help this situation.
I will not settle down until animal slaughter is banned forever.
Join this petition to help me end slaughter and give them better homes.
On Jan. 1 2012, the federal government of Nigeria hiked the pump price of fuel from 65naira to 141naira and later to 97naira. We the citizens of Nigeria say NO!!! There is too much waste pipes in government finances that we know that what ever sacrifice we will be making will only be in vain. We say to the government.
REMOVE CORRUPTION AND, REDUCE GOVERNMENT RUNNUNG COST. THEN AND THEN ALONE CAN YOU TAKE AWAY THE FUEL SUBSIDY.
One third of the NT population are indigenous and hold the linguistic future of Australia’s Indigenous Languages in their hearts and minds. But cannot alone control of the policies of assimilation to English only imposed on them promoting the death of our 50,000 year old Indigenous language heritage.
Linguistic diversity is part of the diversity of life and the loss of these languages threatens the cultural traditions and the fabric of local knowledge linguistic and biological diversity, making the world more fragile, more vulnerable, with less to hope for in the future.
Article 14.1 of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People, to which Australia is a signatory, says:
“Indigenous peoples have the right to establish and control their educational systems and institutions providing education in their own languages, in a manner appropriate to their cultural methods of teaching and learning.”

The University of Canberra has proposed to cancel the Japanese Language Program. As a current student of the program I urge everybody to help convince the preservation of such a great university course.
With many students in the middle of their degrees this cancellation would cause so much stress and many problems. Especially for the ones who decided to go to university to specifically learn the Japanese Language.
The Japanese Program has allowed many students to learn the language and culture, which is important in the current globalizing world and especially in our very multicultural Australia. It has helped create great friendships with many Japanese students on exchange at the university and also while benefiting local students, it is a very attractive course for international students.
The university has agreements with several universities in Japan and while we have students anticipating going on exchange in Japan, we also receive many Japanese students to learn English. This is a great way to represent our university and our country.
Please help us maintain this excellent, well developed language course with the best, most encouraging teachers by signing this petition.
The past students, current students and future students appreciate your help.
Worst Christmas story: Wisconsin vs. deer, article by John Kass @Chicago Tribune. The State of Wisconsin wants to kill Charlotte a deer, who thinks she is a horse.
Charlotte was rescued by Marvin Graaf and is being threatened with up to eight months in jail and a fine of up to $2,000.00. Some 15 months ago a mother deer and her fawn were hit by a car. The mother died and the fawn had been dragged by the car. Only her ear was torn. Charlotte stayed in the same spot where her mother died and wouldn't leave. A neighbor knew a man that had rescued other animals. For four days Charlotte, the fawn, just stood there where her mother died. She wouldn't eat. She was dying. Marvin was able to nurse her back to good health.
In August, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources sent officers to Graaf's home to kill Charlotte. Graaf refused to release Charlotte to them. She threatens no one by staying on Graaf's farm running with her horse friends.
100-150 million sharks are killed every year. In the past 20 years, shark population has decreased by 90%. Scientists predict that within the next 15-20 years, sharks will be completely wiped out.
The are the most important species on Earth, simply because they control levels further down on the food pyramid, as tertiary consumers, and therefore the oxygen levels in the ocean, which controls everything on earth, as it covers 2/3 of the Earth's surface.
Please protect this beautiful creature, and ban the act of shark finning. It starts out locally, but when brought to a global perspective can change the situation dramatically. The slaughter of sharks will soon affect you, so please, take action and sign the petition.
Reggae Music is dying it's being replaced on our airwaves by Hip Hop sounding beats.
Help us get the message to the media house to preserve out heritage our culture our gem.
Lego universe has provided entertainment to many children (and adults) across the globe since October 2010 and is currently in a state of turmoil.
It is a diverse game with many quests and imaginative features to implement throughout, including combat, and in-depth story and property building. many fans are in distress over this so called closing but i will not stand for it.
I (and i'm sure many fans across the world too) are upset about this. If we want to keep this game, we as fans must unite, to save the universe!
Today palm oil is used in lots of shopping products, some of which includes pears soap, pringles, most peanut butters, clover, ginsters, haribo, Good fellas pizza, warburtons and much more. Unfortunately I wouldn't be mentioning this if it didn't have such an affect on the environment.
The palm oil industry is responsible for destroying thousands of acres of deforestation in other countries. Currently 300 football fields are destroyed in south east Asia every hour for palm oil. And it's not just the vegetation that is being affected! The animals that rely on the forest (such as orangutans) are affected, many orangutans have no place to go when the forest is destroyed. 20 years ago their were more than 300,000 Bornean orangutans in the wild, now their are less than 45,000 in the wild. Orangutans only give birth once in 6 - 10 years therefore it is hard for them to breed as much as they are dying out due to deforestation.
Please go to http://www.wspa.org.uk/wspaswork/orangutans/ for more information on orangutans.
But worst of all the industry does not even label palm oil! Most palm oil is labeled as vegetable oil, therefore many people are unaware that it is in their food. This is taking away our freedom to know what exactly goes into our food, it takes away are choice of whether or not to eat palm oil! This is wrong, they should label palm oil and deliberately point out if it is palm oil free!
The Bayside City Council has announced it will close its only community-based childcare centres in Hampton and Sandringham.
This decision was made by the Council without consulting with staff, families or the Bayside community.
These not for profit centres have provided an essential service to Bayside families for over 30 years, and their closure will force 160 families to find alternative care. Private centres have already indicated they will not be able to respond to the overwhelming demand for places.
Disabled and at risk children have not been considered. The centres currently provide priority access for these children and a high standard of care not available elsewhere.
35 employees will lose their jobs – many have worked in the centres for 10 years or more.
The Council has not offered any alternative options for families requiring childcare.
Please sign this petition to show your support in our attempts to prevent the closure of these two much loved and needed facilities.

We have recently started a campaign to stop the closure of the Philosophy department. So far we have started Facebook, Twitter and a society.
This is still a fairly new campaign but we have shown already to have massive support.
The first two days of a written petition saw well over 1000 signatures, I am hoping to have this much success with the online petition.
The Palestinian people need our unconditional support. If you visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestinian_State, you can find many countries and people are ready to declare their support for a Palestinian State.
ERS Racing has been working hard to provide the Ducatista of Scotland with an alternative to Main dealer Servicing.
Surely the Ducati Fans in Scotland have the right to more than one option of where we can take our beloved Ducatis for a little TLC.
The Government is making it easier for local Councils to use green belt land to build large scale housing estates on and in some cases even new towns, while we do need extra housing, all brown sites should be used before green belt land is even considered and in all cases full and truthful information should be given to concerned parties.
We must safeguard our Green Spaces as once they are gone they cannot be recovered. In Eastleigh the Local Council wants to build on several green Belt sites they say for local people, but only a small amount of these new build sites would end up being for Social Housing the rest would be for the private market, which would put more pressure on a town that is slowly sinking under the weight of traffic, lack of school places and health services. The housing situation could be eased by using the unoccupied houses that are in the borough, of which there are around about 1200 in the Eastleigh and Winchester area.
The only winners in this scenario will be the Developers and The Local Council. The losers will be residents of The Eastleigh Borough.
On September 27 2011, The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) brought out a stringent code so as to stop the menace of tele-marketeers.
While it dealt with that issue effectively, with the strengthening of the Do Not Disturb (DND) registry, lurking in it was a troublesome clause, limiting the number of SMSs per day per subscriber to 100. In today's age, SMS has evolved to become an easy, short and quick way for communication, and passing on information at a stretch.
A limit of 100 messages per day to *individual* customers only blocks the flow of vital information, and interpersonal exchange.
Daventry Phoenix Youth Centre is at danger of losing the vast majority of its youth services and it’s only Youth and Development Worker due to funding cuts.

Swansea Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre is responsible for coordinating search and rescue at sea and on the cliffs and coastline. The area covered by Swansea includes the whole of the Bristol Channel, Welsh and English coastlines.
Within the area of responsibility activity is high with numerous marinas, commercial ports, busy beaches, a large resident population and a large amount of visitors. The UK Government has announced that Swansea MRCC is now earmarked for closure.
Little or no regard has been given to public safety and this decision is based on the number of civil servants already employed in Swansea. Not a sound basis to close one of the busiest rescue centres in the UK, it must not happen.
The Richmond Football Club, the Mighty Tigers are reportedly considering a change the club's current logo. This logo represented the club since the early 1990's which makes it one of the longest standing logos in the AFL. It is logo that is loved by all Richmond Supporters and admired by those from other clubs!
We feel any new design would lack the strength, tradition and honor that the current logo entails. A Tiger is meant to be ferocious and feared. Feelings our current logo most definitely invoke!
The Richmond Football club has THE best Theme Song and THE best logo. To take this away from us at a time when we face a new dawn promising the success we so dearly crave, would be appalling.
Like the Tiger of old - We're strong and we're bold.
Property owners in Potts Point have applied for permits from NSW National Parks and Wildlife to kill (cull) sulphur crested cockatoos in order to prevent damage to their buildings. Culling wild birds in urban areas is unnecessary, unethical, unsafe and inevitably fails to protect property.
It has been documented that previous culls of sulphur crested cockatoos in Potts Point and other parts of Sydney have not worked. There are many humane and much more effective alternatives to culling as a form of property protection.
These beautiful, intelligent, wild birds are beloved by many residents in our wonderful community. They add fun and an innocent wildness to our highly urbanised environment. Cockatoos are part of Sydney, and they have a right to co-exist peacefully with humans. It is our responsibility to adapt our built environments to the needs and habits of native wildlife.
Stop the destruction of agricultural land on the Waterloo moraine.
Taking a look at a zoning map of Waterloo from 2001, I noticed that a lot of the outlying land was zoned for agriculture. Right behind the Columbia Forest Court was a beautiful field that glowed a brilliant gold during the fall season. When I glanced at a more recent map from 2009, this same field was rezoned as land for development. For a decade this field had been owned by IBI, a development company that leased the property to farmers.
Up until the end of 2009, these farmers were growing their crops on their field, but last spring a sign in front of the forest that leads to the field announced City of Waterloo's plans to commence the construction of a trail, lighting and waterworks through the middle of the forest to provide a safe passage from the Columbia Forest Estates to the new “Vista Hills” development to be built on the field.
The field remained dormant until this spring, when bulldozers moved in and started to level it. In addition to IBI destroying the land, they are devastating an entire ecosystem, teeming with flora and fauna. Small animals such as groundhogs are being endangered or extirpated and moved to the nearby forest. This construction has damaged the existing ecosystem of the moraine, and there will be an imbalance of species in the forest, which can cause a lot of damage to the existing plants and animals.
A gaping hole in the forest has been cleared to make way for the new path and waterworks that is going to be constructed. The deforestation of ESPA 19 happened this month, in June, prior to a land bird monitoring report that was to be completed, and it occurred during the migratory bird breeding season.
My family and I would like you to help save the Waterloo Moraine that is being destroyed by developers such as IBI. The reason we are trying to protect this land is because it has a rich natural history: it was formed by glaciers thousands of years ago, and today is a rich supply of water for the residents of Waterloo. If you were dwelling near the construction site, would you want to watch the destruction of a valuable natural resource?
Please assist me in stopping this development by signing my petition, and you will be making a difference in our community for generations to come.
The state government are trying to close down the heart of this wonderful country town. The school has an excellent record in nation wide testing and offers lots of extra curricular activities.
The school is apart of a fantastic community which has a varied background. Everyone knows everyone by name and the kids thrive in this friendly learning environment.
The school has worked long and hard to find just the right formula for happy fun loving kids who are happy in there learning environment.
