1. Mark Zuckerberg, Please support Water Science

We are global scientific community of physicists, chemists, biologists, doctors and researchers representing the non-profit* Conference on the Physics, Chemistry and Biology of Water.

We would very much appreciate your support in broadening the coverage of our unique multinational event: Conference on The Physics, Chemistry and Biology of Water, a platform for scientists to report their recent research on the physical and biological properties of water. Water is the source of all life and is often called the most mysterious substance on Earth.

The eleventh annual conference will be held this year in Sofia, Bulgaria, on October 6th-9th 2016. Our annual international conference is expected to gather more than one hundred scientists and doctors from around the world, including Nobel prize winner Luc Montagnier, Professor of Life Sciences and Biotechnology at Shanghai Jiai Tong University. Professor Montagnier's discovery of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) revolutionized the treatment of AIDS.

The conference is chaired by Gerald H. Pollack, professor of bioengineering at the University of Washington, who discovered the fourth phase of water, known as "EZ water" and hailed by Dr. Mae-Wan Ho as “the most significant scientific discovery of this century.” Professor Pollack's discovery has profound implications for biology and sheds new light on the inner workings of cells, which are composed mainly of EZ water. This and other scientific breakthroughs in water research continue to contribute to the advancement of science, thus enhancing all of our lives.

3. Toastmasters International: allow each Region the right to decide if they wish to host a Regional Conference in one of their Districts

Recently, Toastmasters International Board of Directors cancelled the right for District Regions to host Regional Conferences.

The Regional Conferences, just like District Conferences provides Toastmaster members the opportunity to learn, network and broaden the Toastmasters horizons at a very reasonable cost. The Regional Conference Team made up of the host District, provides all the support and efforts at no cost to the Toastmasters International Board of Directors. The Regional Conference, to the best of my knowledge, has not lost any money and therefore usually either breaks even, or makes money for the host District. The only cost that may be associated is the cost for an International Director to be present at the Conference, but this can be decided by the Regional Conference Team.

This decision should not be up to the ID Board, but should be a decision that is made at the Regional and District levels.

4. Raven’s Ait Petition For Community Use

Due to the need for urgent environmental action. We have occupied an island in The Thames.

In these times of rising tides and melting ice shelves, we thought we should get a bit closer to studying the watery world and its rise.

Ravens Ait Island is a unique wedding and conference centre with halls, many rooms, workshop spaces, kitchens and gardens. On an enchanting island in The Thames near Kingston, (opposite Hampton Court). Which we are transforming into an Eco Conference Centre.

Come visit, help, book in to run a skill sharing workshop and put it on the timetable. Network it. There will be an ongoing discussion here “how do we find SOLUTIONS to the environmentally critical situation we face?”

5. Reduce the Cost for State Conference

The Florida State University chapter of the Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law International Fraternity will be holding a state conference for the Florida chapters from March 28th, 2008 - March 30th, 2008. The chapter will be charging its members $40 to attend the conference.

During the conference, those participating in mock trial will not be able to attend the dinner on Friday night, nor will they be able to attend the various activities and speakers on Saturday aside from the banquet and social, however they are still being asked to pay for all of the events. The members of mock trial are asking to pay only for the amount of the banquet.

Many members of the Leadership Board have also contributed a great amount to the conference and as a result are asking for a reduced rate of $20. The Executive Board may determine whom the "contributing members" of the Leadership Board are.

However, if a question results about whom is considered a "contributing member" of the Leadership Board, the Leadership Board reserves the right to call for a vote to decide.

6. Resolve New Houseman Uniform Conflict

The new mandatory uniform for the Housekeeping- Houseman, has been a "thorn in the side" of each of the following mentioned houseman from the day it was implemented.

We have recieved random insults from fellow employees and some laughs from department managers, and feel completely uncomfortable wearing this uniform.

The insults, snickering, and the feeling of inequality to other employees (due to the new uniform), has risen to the point where many houseman are becoming stressed and embarrassed while working on the job.

In addition, the design of the t-shirt resembles that of the female housekeepers and doesn't represent the Housekeeping department in a flattering or respectiful mannar. We were not given a fair choice for this new uniform and feel it would be unjust to leave this issue unresolved.

7. Protest Mayor Livingstone's Racist Statement

March 22, 2006

Ken Livingstone, Mayor of London, at his weekly press conference 21 March 2006 made a classic racist jibe - telling two Londoners (the Reuben brothers), who have lived in London since the 1950s when they immigrated as teenagers, "if they're not happy, perhaps they could always go back to Iran and see if they do better under the Ayatollahs."

Incidentally, they are Jewish but not of Iranian origin. The context was a disagreement over a property development in the east of London.

Ken Livingstone's defence, in assembly questions 22/3/6 was that he was not aware the Reubens are Jewish - he thought they were Shias from Iran; in which case - even if we believe this to be true - his comments are still racist. So please sign!

NCAA division 1-a football is the only sport in the country without an established playoff system. For years, crowning a National Champion came after all the bowls were played and the final AP rankings came out. A few years ago, the Bowl Championship Series was implemented so that the top two teams in the country would play each other in a true championship game. And as novel of an idea as this once sounded, it hasn't quite lived up to its purpose.
