3. Immigration Law Society at Wash U

The purpose of this petition is to gather enough signatures of currently enrolled law students at Washington University in St. Louis to formally create an Immigration Law Society at Wash U.

The Law School has never had an Immigration Law Society, yet St. Louis is the home of a surprisingly large population of new immigrants and refugees. Immigration is a topic commonly intertwined with employment and labor law, criminal law, health care, international law and foreign policy, among many other areas. The Immigration Law Society at Wash U would allow students to explore immigration law through direct community outreach, local and national speakers, fair-minded debates, contacts with employers and professional organizations, and advocacy and awareness events. Furthermore, the community outreach and volunteer aspect of the organization would provide students another avenue to obtain real-world legal experiences while in school, giving Wash U law students a competitive edge in the job market, even in areas other than immigration.

If you support the creation of this new organization, please help us by signing this petition. Under the Bylaws of the Student Bar Association, a new organization needs at least 10 registered members and twenty student signatures supporting the group’s formation, among other things. Please note in the space provided whether you would like to sign as a "Member" or "Supporter."

Thank you!

6. Arirang TV Back In Sky Cable's Silver Plan

For the past nine years since Sky Cable had included Arirang TV in its roster of cable channels in 1999, Philippine viewers have been enjoying and learning about the Korean culture through the variety of shows they offer.

Since 2006, Sky Cable had removed Arirang TV from its channel listing offered in their basic Sky Silver Plan available at PhP 680.00 , and moved it to the premium Platinum Plan offered at PhP 2020.00. Because of this, Philippine Arirang TV viewers are left with no option but to upgrade their plans to a more expensive one should they want to continue watching Arirang TV.

Arirang TV is the only Korean TV station with a multi-lingual format, with Korean shows translated or subtitled in different languages (Russian, Arabic, Chinese, Bahasa, Spanish, Vietnamese and English).

By signing this petition, you are supporting the cause of the Philippine Arirang TV viewers in their endeavor to bring Arirang TV back to the channel listing of Sky Cable's basic Sky Silver Plan so that everyone can enjoy the viewing pleasures - both entertaining and informative- of Arirang TV in a much affordble cost.

8. Opposing Bath Bus Rapid Transit To Run Along The Disused Railway From Brassmill Lane To Win


SAVE BATH’S GREEN CORRIDOR!

The Proposal:

£54 million of government money may be awarded to the City of Bath for a new transport plan. B&N.E.S intend to invest a massive chunk of this public money on a 'Bus Rapid Transit System' (BRT), which will run from an extended Newbridge Park and Ride before adjoining onto a former railway line (a mile long stretch of green land), between Brassmill Lane and Windsor Bridge Rd.

This is part of a wider proposal to join Newbridge Park & Ride in the west of Bath, to a Park and Ride at Bathampton Meadows in the east, via the city centre.

The council estimates that the new route will benefit customers by saving them an average of two minutes on a trip from Newbridge to the City Centre, in a diesel, bendy bus.

The segregated route will bypass the Upper and Lower Bristol Road in the west, both of which are both relatively un-congested. The buses will then travel on existing roads in the city centre and the east, where congestion is a real problem.

Why Oppose The BRT Route?

Unproven benefits and uncertain outcomes:

The claim that the BRT will reduce congestion is very debatable. It is basically a decentralised car park scheme which will encourage people to drive rather than use public transport. Car users will be attracted to the P&R which is in a residential area on the outskirts of Bath. The scheme will displace some city centre traffic, but not enough to make a real long term difference.

The BRT will add to congestion on Park and Ride access routes and at congestion "hotspots", such as Windsor Bridge road and London Road.

Through traffic and “school run” traffic will not be reduced by the BRT


Unrealistic costs and high financial risk:

Costs will definitely rise far above the over optimistic estimates put forward.

Complicated road junctions, bridges, re-engineering of major sewers and contested compulsory purchase orders all add up to serious risk which has not been properly assessed. Major works, new to the plan, have not been accounted for within the budget.

Council tax will be raised and residents of Bath will end up footing the bill when the costs exceed the agreed national funding.


Inadequate consideration of negative impacts:

The scheme will have significant negative impacts which have not been properly considered.

An established green lane, habitat to diverse wildlife and mature trees will be destroyed. Hundreds of households will suffer air, noise and light pollution, vibration and loss of privacy. Businesses will be demolished and forced out and private gardens will be taken by force. Local people will lose a significant green space, currently used by many for recreation. The new road will form a hard physical barrier between communities and will be a magnet for anti social behavior at night. Large, diesel bendy buses will affect the character of narrow city centre streets and harm trade.

A 21st century vision should aim for zero on street emissions and put people first.
The people of Bath are being let down by the council’s lack of vision.

Join us in a peaceful protest, as we deliver our petition to the council at The Guildhall, Bath, 6.30, 20th November.

Please choose to save the green corridor and support local people by signing our petition!

10. Keep Scottsdale Closed Petition

Join us to say “NO” to opening Scottsdale!

On Wednesday, April 25th, the BHC MUD Board voted against opening up Scottsdale Road to Hwy. 183-A by sending a resolution to the City of Cedar Park and Williamson County offices, stating to vacate their right-away to the MUD. Since this time, a small number of Block House Creek residents decided to re-open the issue and ask BHC residents to sign a petition to open Scottsdale.

Our opinion to this is that we to want another alternative road opened within Block House Creek, but not for the safety of our children and the peace of our neighborhood. We believe, in time, Block House Creek Road makes the most sense to open up rather than Scottsdale. There are no houses that face the road, only fences.

We are asking you to join fellow neighbors that will be directly affected by the opening of Scottsdale Rd. to access 183A and say "NO" by signing this online petition.

Harm that will potentially come with opening Scottsdale:

1. Serious injury or a death of a child or pedestrians
walking or riding their bikes along Scottsdale.

2. High speed drivers exiting 183A onto Scottsdale from 60+ MPH onto a 25 MPH zone.

3. Accidents with residents cars when they’re backing out of their driveways onto Scottsdale.

4. Accidents with residents who are trying to get their mail from the mailboxes built on Scottsdale.

5. Accidents involving school children who are getting on/off of school buses at 2 corners on Scottsdale.

6. Two homes on Scottsdale potentially losing their home and/or yard, which will put those families in a financial bind.

7. Increase in traffic from non-residents cutting through Block House Creek to get to Horizon Park, Ridgewood and also to get to their homes that are across 183, by using our main exit.

8. Ruin the quality of life that we have living on and near Scottsdale.

9. The value of our homes (that are specifically on or right off of Scottsdale) will potentially go down because our driveways will be difficult to get in and out of, drive by traffic will be heavy, front yards will no longer be family friendly and our once peaceful area would be filled with traffic and back-ups.

10. Increase in crime rate and access for DWI drivers to drive right past our homes

Please help our families by signing our Petition AGAINST extending Scottsdale Drive onto HWY. 183A! Thank you!

If you would like to help us in the fight to keep our families safe and choose a better solution, please let your voice be heard by:

1. Call or email our County Commissioner Cynthia Long at 260-4280 or clong@wilco.org to let your feelings be known

2. Participate in the online survey on the BHC Owners Association at www.bhcoa.com

We sincerely thank you for your support in helping us maintain our quality of life and the safety of our families!

13. Act Urgently - Do Not Let Opponents Block Civilian Nuclear Cooperation Between the US and India

The time has come for you to act now and make a forceful statement of your support to the historic transformation in U.S. - India relations. We are witnessing a shifting of paradigms, and you can play a critical role at this juncture when the entire world is watching the outcome of the civil nuclear agreement between the U.S. and India.

You can act and make a difference. A difference that will be remembered by generations to come. Or you can choose to do nothing.

President Bush's visit to India has brought the story of India to the fore of global attention like never before, and opponents of enlightened U.S. - Indian interests are out in force and trying to change the opinions of individual Congressmen and Senators. We cannot afford to let them scuttle the visionary path of U.S. - India relations. Those who oppose the civil nuclear deal oppose the rise and development of India.

We urge you to act. We urge you to act by signing the following petition to U.S. Congress.

The Issue

The U.S. and India have resolved to progress on civil nuclear power cooperation between the two countries on March 2, 2006, during President Bush's visit to India. This agreement requires certain laws to be changed and amended in the U.S. Congress, for which the Bush administration will soon approach the Congress. The Congress has to give its approval to the deal. By signing this petition you will convey to the Congress that you strongly support this deal.

USINPAC has been working in support of civil nuclear cooperation since its beginning stages, including meeting with key Members of Congress in both the House and Senate, and also senior officials from India, in support of this cooperation. By signing this petition you will add significantly to U.S. - India relations.

15. Pro Gay Marriage

January 1, 2006

In the United Sates, as well as other countries of the world, gay marriage is illegal.

As many people who are against gay marriage say, heterosexual marriage is for reproduction, and of course there is no reproduction in gay marriage. However, nowadays and for many years now, people have not necessarily gotten married to have children, but because they love each other : so why can`t homosexuals have the same happiness through marriage?

Everybody is different and unique but they must be respescted and have the same rights as everyone else. As for religious issues on gay marriage, not everybody in the world is Christian (or any other religion that bans gay marriage), there are about 4,200 religions in this world.

By signing this petition, you are helping the world be a fairer, better place for everybody, regardless of sexual preferences or religion.

16. Shiima Xion Newcomer of the Year 2005

In the year 2004 AD, a trashy Filipino male supermodel named Shiima Xion debuted in the International Wrestling Cartel. Shiima put on stellar performance after stellar performance in IWC throughout the remainder of 2004 and even more so in 2005. IWC rightfully nominated Shiima as a contender for the "2004 Newcomer of the Year" award.

Shiima won the award in a landslide victory, but somehow ended up sharing that victory with his then arch-rival, Jason Gory (aka angry mime). Rumor has it that Jason Gory simply voted for himself on every computer in his school computer lab...twice! (he erased cookies on every freakin PC) which led to the tie occuring. Shiima, irate and confused, chose to disregard Gory's attempts at stealing his spotlight, and proceeded to declare himself the official Newcomer of the Year.

For whatever reason, IWC promoter Norm Connors booked a match on July 29th, 2005 between Gory and Shiima to determine the undisputed 2004 Newcomer of the Year. Shiima lost to Gory on that night, and unwillingly passed his 2004 Newcomer of the Year torch to the little fairy boy. Since that loss, Shiima Xion has received an IWC World Title shot, IWC Tag Title shots, IWC International Title shots, and wrestled in notable promotions such as Chikara and Pro Wrestling Unplugged. What has the "undisputed" Newcomer of the Year done since winning the award? Well..he won the Tex-Arkana Title for a couple seconds. Enough Said.

Shiima Xion proved in 2005 that he is once again deserving of a nomination for the Newcomer of the Year. Some may say, "Shiima isn't a newcomer anymore, though." Understandable, but one must remember that Shiima Xion is a supermodel. How is that relevent? Simple. A supermodel never gets old, never gets routine, never gets stale...and is ALWAYS in season. Shiima Xion is not last season, nor is he "last year." Shiima Xion is the future, and by signing this online petition, you the fans (aka Shiimarks) are recognizing that you want the future to look bright in IWC. Let's make it happen.

Let's get Shiima Xion a nomination on the 2005 Newcomer of the Year award, and allow our beloved Virgin Slayer to be the only TWO TIME Newcomer of the Year in the history of professional wrestling.

18. Abolish the X Mark

This is Loreena Minaudo, and thanks to Rep Leon Drolet and Rep Fred Miller who made it possible for Bill 4258 to pass through the House. This was our second try, and my DNOM's friends, along with my brother Joe supported me in everyway. It happened on September 7th 2005.

Please digest these following questions. Did you ever consider how demoralizing it is to sign your own name with an X when you're disabled? And what if someone would come up to you and remark, "Anyone can write an X!" What would you say? Well, Ladies and Gentlemen, I can't speak for the others, but in my own life, these questions are asked.

My name is Loreena Minaudo, and I have cerebral palsy - a birth defect. Through no fault of my own, my arms and hands don't have the motor control to write my name. It isn't because I'm not educated. In fact, in 1991 I did not only receive an Associate of Arts degree from Macomb Community College, but President Al Lorenzo published my first book called A Cry for Education. So, for someone to say," Anyone can sign an x," I feel like saying - Does the word STUPID appear on my forehead?

I am often ignored, talked down to, or smirked at by able-bodied men and women out in society. Unfortunately, due to my affliction, I find that the disabled and the elderly communities are the most targeted by not so honest people. Then, I have heard too many horror stories about Personal Aides, Con Artists, and family members who forge the X signature to get our money.

This is why I, as well as the rest of the physically challenged people who have arm and hands limitations, need something more than an (X) when signing our names. We would like to use a thumbprint or fingerprint for signing our names.

According to the Academic American Encyclopedia it says that fingerprinting is one of the earliest forms of scientific evidence to be recognized in the courts of law. An individual's ten fingerprints form an indelible, unchangeable signature, and fingerprint records can be used for identification, despite changes in an individual's appearance or age.

The Bill had voted unanimously. But in later months, HB 4258 was attached to the Garbage Bill, and they were both trashed down. But despite this, Colleen Manning pushed Rep Leon Drolet to reinstate the Bill again, which he did.

Sircerely,

Loreena Minaudo
