This video shows a veterinarian who wanted to personally experience the effects of (like a dog often is, perhaps) being in a parked car, with windows cracked, alone for half an hour. I was stunned. Please check it out. Haven't done it since hot weather and not for long but, boy, never again. Never again, Ming Toi!!!Frown

This young student tried a science experiment that, a shock to all including Kiera, "blew up". This took place recently in Polk County, Florida at Bartow High School. Noone harmed, ingredients: aluminum foil and toilet cleaner in a plastic bottle. It didn't take place in a science classroom. Kiera's a good student and Bartow is a good high school. Their zero tolerance policy, however, is beyond impressive. Their reaction was to immediately suspend Kiera from school and intended to press charges! Thanks to many petitions, the State's Attorney's office said that they saw no intentional ill will and they would not press charges. (Go, Jeff Ashton!) Polk County Board of Education, though, is not allowing her to return to Bartow High School; she had indeed been "expelled"! and is at an "alternative high school". I think this is ludicrous. Especially when I glanced at the Board's website and the pride they take in their school and those awarded for various honours. Below is a petition to support Keira's return to HER school. Thanks, Jude

Below is a link to a cartoon that I think is pretty amusing in its truth. Jude

Interesting list of Senators who've received campaign ('donations'?) from gun lobbiests. Compare the names with those who turned down the recent gun control ammendment. This is the main page; go down the page about half way and look for the May 1 article which has the list. The rest is gravy and gives info on the group, who makes it up, etc. Here's the link:

23 of America's leading cartoonists of all tastes have joined Mayors Against Illegal Guns to put together this 2+ minute video. Following it, there's a slide show option to get info on who the artists are. Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Julianne Moore narrate. 


The cartoonists came together following the shootings in Newtown, CT. (Where I attended junior and senior high school).

Take a look at this link to see what "Orangutans: Men of the Forest" is about. The group involves a lot more than Orangutans! It has a lot of news, petitions, photos, videos on a large variety of endangered species. Your concerns about Climate Change and a variety of environmental issues are discussed and worked with. Products that are passed off as essential in a lot of American products that are stripping the rainforest of its tree and inhabitants. Issues with Indigenous Peoples being displaced from their land. So much more. In just months, I've learned more than I thought I didn't know, for lack of a better explanation. Leader Michela is in Rome Italy and has a variety of interests and a lot of knowledge about her subjects as do the more than 3,000 members. Group members from around the world contribute to the vast array of topics.

Thanks for giving it a look and your consideration!  Jude

Focus: Government
Action Request: Petition
Location: United States

This petition is spearheaded with a photo of Phil Donahue. It states the case plainly and clearly. Please sign! I'm distressed that our President has even considered this having promised not to. Apparently, more Democrats than Republicans are considering this. Go figure!

Send an unambiguous message to your representative and senators: If you vote to cut Social Security or Medicare benefits, I will oppose your re-election.

Many thanks,
