Petition Tag - expansion
Ghost Stories is one of the most popular co-operative board games in existence. Among hundreds of co-operative games listed on the Board Game Geek website, it is the 6th most highly rated, with more than five thousand votes. It was designed by Antoine Bauza, with art by Pierô, and it was published by Repos Production in 2008.
In 2009, the first expansion for the game was published. It is called White Moon and it is highly praised by critics and gamers alike. Tom Vasel has said that it is possibly his "favorite expansion ever for a co-operative game" and that it is "a must buy" for anyone who likes the base game. Click here to watch his video review of White Moon.
Unfortunately, this expansion went out of print and new copies are now very hard to find. This petition was created in order to demonstrate to Repos Production that there is still demand for White Moon and that it should be reprinted.
THE AUTHOR IS NOT AFFILIATED TO THE PUBLISHERS OF THE GAME.
Islamia Primary School is hoping to build a new two-storey school on part of its existing site, to provide 21st century education and learning opportunities for its pupils. The current school was built over one hundred years ago and the buildings no longer meet pupil or teacher needs. Islamia Primary is also an extremely popular and over-subscribed school, on average receiving ten applications for every place available, and it urgently needs to expand to cater for the current pupils on roll and to meet the growing demand for places across the borough.
Islamia Primary School’s site has always been used for educational purposes. The school itself was founded in 1983 by Dr Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens). In 1989, it moved to its present site at 129 Salusbury Road. Nine years later, it became the first Muslim school in England to be awarded grant maintained status, which meant that the vast majority of the school's funding came from central government. The following year it opted to become a voluntary aided school, in 2007 the school took on an additional 138 pupils, following the closure of The Avenue School in Brondesbury Park. The main site at Salusbury Road is also shared with an independent Muslim girl's secondary school, which occupies the entire first and second floor of the buildings, and parts of the ground floor. This school is not part of the re-development proposal. The rebuild is needed as the existing buildings are leaky, not energy efficient, not compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) and are spread out on many different levels, with stepped access and no lift. The proposed new building will provide easy access for all pupils and adults, including those with visual and hearing impairments and those with special educational needs (SEN), including speech, language and communication difficulties, and severe learning disabilities. The proposed new school will provide these pupils with a dedicated room and space for educational psychologists, speech and language therapists and school nurses to come in and offer support. In general all the facilities at the site are inadequate for a modern school.
The new school plan is to build a new, modern and inspirational school, which will meet the needs of current and future generations of pupils. The building will reflect the school's faith and its ethos and will allow improved links with the local community, by opening its facilities at set times out of school hours. For example, by providing space for adult education, health and fitness and a canteen, which can be used by parents.
There will also be:
Fourteen new classrooms, a dedicated children's library, a specialist teaching room for SEN, an enlarged roof-top play area, a dedicated prayer area, landscaped areas and additional outdoor learning spaces for all children , a children's gym.
From September 2011 new pupils attending Islamia Primary School will have to live within the catchment area of the school, which will mean significantly less pupils travelling in from outside the borough. Currently 40 per cent of pupils come in from neighbouring boroughs.
The school is urgently fundraising for this development.

The City od Norfolk is trying to rezone property located at 115 E. Liberty Street. The property is currently zoned as Commercial and they are trying to rezone it to Residential for the purpose of building eight (8) single family homes.
The rezoning of this property will prevent the future expansion of New Hope United Church of Christ.
East Hill Expansion means:
With the NRL Executive Committee looking to make an official decision on expansion plans as early as next year (2010), there needs to be a strong and significant campaign continuing to promote Western Australia as a viable and necessary option.
The NRL claims to be a national competition, yet has a high saturation of its teams residing in New South Wales and Queensland (... and one team in isolation within Victoria, ACT, and NZ). This competition, at present, is not a national competition, but rather an Eastern States corporation.
For a long time, Western Australia has been a strong support for many sporting competitions. The Western Force have the largest membership base within the Super 14 (rugby union) competition. The Fremantle Dockers and West Coast Eagles have two of the largest membership bases in the AFL. All three clubs are amongst the richest (financially) in their respective competitions. This is a significant point the NRL needs to recognise.
Additionally, Western Australia has the support base for rugby league, it has the infrastructure (grounds), it has a solid community development focus (amongst its local competition), and has historically held a franchise in the past; and is more than capable of operating one again.
Presently, the National Rugby League has suggested an expansion into the "central coast" region. Another eastern states franchise, in an already saturated market. This will only further cannibalise fans and supporters from existing clubs over in the Eastern States, and is a nonsensical approach to solving the competitions market coverage and financial short-falls.
It's time the rest of the country becomes involved in the game. It's time other states and territories are considered. It's time for the NRL to become a truly national competition as it's namesake suggests. It's time for the NRL to compete with it's main competition (the AFL) on the national stage.
The government has approved plans to expand Heathrow airport despite genuinely widespread opposition.
An indicative vote on the issue will be held in the House of Commons this Wednesday 28th. Nigel Griffiths, MP for Edinburgh South, has been inconsistent in his position on this issue.
On April 2nd 2008, he voted in favour of the pro-expansion government motion in a debate on Heathrow in the House of Commons.
On Sept 29th, he told an audience of University of Edinburgh academics and students that he was 'inclined to be opposed' to a third runway.
Nigel Griffiths was elected on a majority of just 400 votes. The Lib Dems, Greens and Conservatives oppose Heathrow expansion.
Nigel Griffiths must take part in this vote and make clear to voters what his position is. He must join other Labour MPs (including in Edinburgh) and vote against this incredibly foolish decision.
We, the undersigned law students, respectfully express our shared aspiration that human rights law and policy--domestic and international--be accorded a greater presence in the Duke Law curriculum. These topics, we believe, are critically important to the lives of all people around the globe in the twenty-first century.
Our law school is recognized for its strengths in several legal disciplines. Human rights is, however, not yet among them, as compared with many of our peer institutions.
Only a small number of courses address human rights and civil rights law. Such courses are mostly offered only on an occasional basis. Moreover, there are no, or almost no, faculty members at Duke Law who specialize in human rights full-time.
On February 19th 2008, the Marion County Board of County Commissioners postponed voting on the 65 acre Baseline Landfill expansion until July 15th 2008. We are asking for your continued support in signing this very important petition opposing this expansion. This expansion raises immediate health concerns for the neighboring family communities, Forest High School, and the Rotary Sports Complex.
Health, Environment and Quality of Life:
As residents of Marion County we need to be concerned about our environment, health and quality of life. Landfill expansion into a karst-sensitive (sinkhole-prone) area poses a threat to both the aquifer and the quality of life we are leaving behind for future generations. Eliminating this threat and protecting our environment takes careful analysis, planning, and long term vision. The proposed expansion is short sighted, puts the environment at risk and places a higher value on cost savings over life.
Mismanaged Tax Dollars:
The Marion County Board of County Commissioners has mismanaged the taxpayer dollars and ran the current landfill into a deficit of $1.8 million and wasted $6 Million on a failed transfer station project that lasted a little over three years. The transfer station was voted to be shut down on February 5th, 2008.
In 2001 an ordinance in Marion County was passed prohibiting any more class I, II, or III landfills being built or expanded after January 1, 2002. Our current elected Commissioners have taken the liberty to revoke this ordinance, therefore breaking the promise to the citizens of Marion County.
The City of Surrey took up the GO FOR 20 CHALLENGE in August 2005 to encourage residents to increase their physical activity.
Fraser Heights Community Center was built without a much needed fitness centre that should have included a variety of cardio equipment- treadmills, elliptical trainers, bikes, stairclimbers, rowing machines as well as a free weight area.
We are asking people around the world to sign an online petition asking the World Bank to immediately halt plans for the expansion of industrial logging in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Read on to find out more, and don't forget to forward this to friends and colleagues, as we need as many signatures as possible.
Logging the Congo rainforests will cut down more than just trees!
The rainforests of the Congo - which are the second largest on Earth after those of the Amazon - are imminently threatened. New laws being introduced under the guidance of the World Bank, as well as a 'zoning' of the country's forests, will potentially see an area the size of France handed out to logging companies.
35 million people (75% of Congo's national population) live in and around the forests, and depend on it for food, shelter, and natural medicines. The forests are also home to thousands of plant and animal species, including the lowland Gorilla, chimpanzees, forest elephants, and the rare okapi. So far, the rainforests have largely been spared widespread destruction.
However, the new laws, which are due to come into effect this year, will encourage a massive expansion of the timber industry, including a 60-fold increase in industrial logging.
This could be the start of the first major environmental and humanitarian catastrophe of the 21st century.
The Rainforest Foundation, along with dozens of environmental and human rights groups from the Democratic Republic of Congo is calling on the World Bank to immediately halt plans for the expansion of industrial logging of the Democratic Republic of Congo, and to ensure that the rights of people living in the forest are respected.
Please spare two minutes to sign the online World Bank petition and forward this email on to your friends and colleagues?
