كان بائعاً للخضار قبل الثورة يعتاش من عمله المتواضع في السوق في بابا عمرو, كان من أوائل الثائرين ضد الظلم والطغيان في سوريا, وأول عمل له في الثورة السورية كان كمتظاهر أمام نيران القناصة ودبابات النظام السوري .
ثم قام الناشط علي عثمان بمشاركة أصدقائه بالعمل في مجال الإعلام وكمصور ميداني لتصوير المظاهرات في حي بابا عمرو والأحداث فيها .
ومن اشهر واقوى ما التقتطه كميرته هو اول فيدو للقصف حيث علق فيه قائلا:

وحياته أثناء الثورة كلها كانت خطراً بخطر ... وأشدها حين تم قصف المكتب الاعلامي في حي بابا عمرو مرتين ..

مقتل الصحفيين بعد قصف المكتب الاعلامي
The journalist Ali Mahmoud Othman was born in 1978. He worked as a vegetable-seller prior to the revolution. Ali joined the revolution from the start, he protested and then joined the media side which included filming protests and the events taking place.
Some of the strongest clips Ali took with his camera, was actually the first video of the shelling - he speaks saying "Baba Amr is being shelled ... Where are you oh Arabs!"
His life was at risk twice as he was present both times the Baba Amr media centre got shelled.
The first time the Baba Amr media office was shelled: Ali Othman is present and speaks clearly saying "turn off the live stream, they have found out where we are"
Ali Othman was involved in helping the injuries and carrying them to safety during the attack on the Baba Amr media office:
The second time the Baba Amr media office was shelled: This was the attack that led to the twi journalists Marie Colvin and Remi Ochlik being killed and others including the British journalist Paul Conroy, Edith Bouvier, William Daniels and Javier Espinosa being saved as well as activists. Ali subjected his life to risk as he went in to film and save the injured. He filmed this clip minutes after the attack:

كما انه معروف لدى الصحافة الذين دخلوا حي باباعمرو بما أنه كان يرافقهم بجولاتهم في الحي.

والنشطاء الذين كان وباقي الصحفيين بداخل المكتب الاعلامي.
A statement from the Baba Amr media centre team:
The media journalist Ali Mahmoud Othman from the media office of Baba Amr has been detained in Aleppo. Ali Othman was forced to flee Baba Amr to Aleppo after the regime stormed the neighborhood. We, the media office, are calling on all human rights organisations across the world, as well as the Federation of Arab Journalists and the United Nations to interfere immediately to save the life of the journalist and activist Ali Othman who is being subjected to the worst forms of torture since his arrest. We place full responsibility on the Syrian Assad regime for any harm caused to the journalist Ali Othman. Ali, the journalist, helped with the procedure of removing injuries from the besieged neighborhood to safety and treatment and played a large role in saving the lives of the following journalists:
Ali was also known to the media who entered the neighborhood of Baba Amr prior to it's storming. Ali was involved in taking them around on tours of the neighborhood and accompanied them to many parts of it.
The journalist Ali Othman also subjected himself to great danger as he conveyed the massacre of the journalists to the Arab and international media after the Baba Amr media office was shelled with missiles in minutes.
Ali also risked his life in helping aid the activists inside the media office and the other journalists who were present during the attack.
On Monday, a picture became circulated of a helpless infant dieing in water in a red bucket in a HOSPITAL in China. After the Chinese Birth Control Office injected poison into the pregnant woman to make her deliver the baby dead, it actually came out alive and started to cry.
The people responsible ripped the baby from its mother and threw it in a bucket, with water in it, to die. This is not going away and harm will come upon our world for this kind of atrocity continuing. Shame on the Chinese government for allowing this, and anyone else who condones this criminal, terrorist activity upon helpless infants.
I ask, and hold and hear by that those involved need to be held responsible, and put in a courtroom where they will be judged for their crimes by the great citizens of the common world. Thank you. Justice and the common man's concern for human life will prevail!
The Dover PA Post Office has been one of the 3700 post office's listed nationally by the USPS on July 26, 2011 as being reviewed for possible closure. The USPS has indicated that in replacement of a closed post office they would like to create what they are calling a "Village Post Office".
These types of VPO's will only have limited services available unlike a real Post Office. The Post Office's listed for possible closure on average turn in $50 in revenue a day, are not on major roads or near major intersections, have limited parking to list a few items of concern, all of which do not apply to the Dover PA Post Office.
Whereas APUS (the Association of Part-time Undergraduate Students), has been told to vacate their NEW office at the Margaret Fletcher building (100 Devonshire Place) by December 1, 2011 for plans to build a “Centre for High Performance Sport,” of which 75% of the operating costs are expected to be paid for by students;
Whereas APUS is lobbying to preserve the Margaret Fletcher building which was built in 1909, by getting the University of Toronto administration to acknowledge it as a heritage site and withdraw its plans to demolish the building and promote conservation;
Whereas we consider the Margaret Fletcher building, attached to Woodsworth College, our permanent home! It is child-friendly, has an open meeting area, a huge front lot, a kitchen and office/programming space;
Whereas the University of Toronto administration has not offered a suitable alternative permanent space and therefore continues to undermine part-time students.

The Sweetwater County Commissioners have cut their portion of the funding to the University of Wyoming Cooperative Extension Office and will be closing all of the programs it offers to the county, including the local 4-H program.
The 4-H program has for generations, provided programs to the children of Sweetwater County, as well as contributing most of the exhibits and livestock at the Sweetwater County Fair. Children can participate in projects ranging from raising livestock such as beef, pigs, goats, sheep, poultry and rabbits to leadership, robotics, shooting sports, gardening, and many more.
Please help us keep this funding for the youth of Sweetwater County.
My partner has been in prison for almost 6 months. We were hoping that his sentence will be reduced and finished on or before13th August. He appealed against his sentence and his appeal went through and he is hoping to attend the court on Friday.
I contacted our mp concerning his immigration papers the home office wrote to him that they are processing his case. He left me with a 51/2 weeks baby when they took him on 9th February, not fully recovered from operation and with no help at all as the social service said i was not entitled to any benefit for a baby as an international student and him being a failed asylum seeker.
I manage to survive mainly for the help of the church.
I was expecting that after his sentence my partner should be able to come out and support our baby so that i can go on with my studies but last week the immigration prisoner officer told him that no matter what happened to his sentence he is going to be detained and deported back to DRC congo.
I am so confused and i don't understand why are they doing this to my family, i am sure if he go back to his country he is going to be killed and i cant go with him, if i send my baby to masai land he will not be accepted (a baby from non maasai dad). I am struggling to stay in UK for the time being using some serving i had and help from the church worrying not to know what else i can do. I feel there is no justice at all.
On August 10, 2008, a propane explosion occurred at Sunrise Propane, 54 Murray Rd, North York, Ontario, forcing 12,000 residents from their homes.
Due to extensive damage caused by the explosion, not all residents have returned home as they have to rebuild.
Residents who have elected to tear down more than 50% of their existing walls, have learned that their house rebuilding is being treated as "new construction".
This Bylaw is according to Municipal Code, Chapter 851, Water Supply and Chapter 681, Sewer Service. Residents will have to pay the City of Toronto approx $11,000 for upgrades on city property, which does not include the additional expense required to upgrade the pipes on their own property.
Glenn De Baeremaeker, Chair of Public Works & Infrastructure, denied all requests for the issue to be added as an agenda item. He stated in a letter, “I fully understand and sympathize with the situation your constituent is faced with as he rebuilds his home following last summer’s Sunrise Propane blast, there does not appear to be sufficient merit to warrant a request of City Council to exempt this property from the relevant provisions of the Municipal Code”
Several written requests have been submitted to the Mayor's office for assistance. Karen Duffy responsed from the Office of the Mayor, stating that "The Mayor's Office is satisfied that the city is responding to your request. The decision rests with the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee. There will be no meeting scheduled."
A final attempt was made to add the issue to the agenda on the day of the meeting, June 3rd, and Glenn De Baremeaker made a ruling that the request would not be put to a vote and would not be heard by the committee.
Karen Duffy stated the Mayor was powerless to help, and once again said no meeting would be scheduled.
We are appealing to the Medical Training Office that instead of imposing the APMC regulation of having 16hrs duty for every 3 days, we prefer to go on 24hrs duty for every 4 days rotation.
The Far West Village is one of New York's most historic neighborhoods, which community groups and preservationists have fought for years to preserve and protect from over development.
However, there is a six block section of the Far West Village which still contains an anomalous and outdated zoning designation that encourages out-of-scale development, and strongly encourages hotel, dormitory, or office development in a predominantly residential but mixed-use neighborhood.
While this area is now part of the Greenwich Village Historic District, only a change to the zoning can ensure that any new development here truly respects the scale and character of the neighborhood.
I am writing as a concerned parent of a student who is to be attending kindergarten in the year 09/10. I currently live in Clintondale which is Porter township. I was supposed to register my daughter for kindergarten this year and I am struggling with the fact that the KCSD is purely being run by power and money. Here is my story: My daughters designated school is Robb elementary. Now I am sure all of you who don't know about the "policies" are wondering why Robb when this family lives in Clintondale. Yes, I thought the same thing. So I called to get answers. And like we all know nobody ever has any. I do not want my daughter to go to Robb for the fact that it is so big. It has three kindergarten classes and Lamar Township only has 12 students in their kindergarten. This is pure ludicrous. Not only that but the fact I am going to pass three yes that's right three other elementary schools before I get to Robb. So many students are falling between the cracks of the education system and the district is allowing this to happen. I want my daughter to go to a school where to is going to get the attention that every student deserves. Next year so far there is only 25 students going to Mill Hall elementary in the kindergarten class.
Now also attending Lamar Township is a little girl who her designated school was Robb but she is being allowed to go to Lamar for the simple fact that her mother went to a board meeting and said I live in Porter Township and if my daughter goes to Robb then she will make friends in Lock Haven and I will have to drive her to Lock Haven to play with her friends. So they passed it and allowed her to go to Lamar Township.... and you call this justification. Absolutely not....I want to send my daughter to a school where I know she is going to get the education she deserves and we are going to put social power over that. Where does it end??
That's my question to you? When are we as citizens going to stand up and say ya know this mother has a point. There was a study done by a group of people who were concerned about the education system over the entire country. Whether your going to the suburbs of San Fransisco or a small town like Mill Hall/ Lock Haven results all came out pretty much the same and the results will blow you socks right off.
It was a study on students who have dropped out of school and we currently have about 30% of students dropping out and 45% of those students said that they dropped out in high school because during their elementary education years they were simply not prepared to handle the knowledge at the high school level. WHAT?!?!? That is what is going on here folks. That is what is going on. When I called the attendance office, transportation office, and the superintendents office and said all I am asking is for justification for my child going to a school that is in Lock Haven when I have an elementary school 2 miles from my house they all said the same thing....that is what the board passed. Blows me away. So in closing here is what my conclusion is.
My daughters education will be determined my a handful of people who all have political power and a better social status than John Doe down the street. Is that really justification? And at the end of the day who are we??? It is a question that we as citizens need to really think about. This is a serious situation and I am sure I am not the only mother or parent for that matter who has the same concerns. Let's come together as a community and make our education system what it needs to be. Or we will just be another statistic?
We, the Filipinos residing in the Philippines and overseas, strongly condemn the brutal killing of Mrs. Lilia de Villa's husband and 7-year old daughter by policemen pursuing a robbery gang on Dec. 5, 2008 in Paranaque City. This wanton act of savagery and blatant disregard for "Rules of Engagement" by the very same policemen who are supposed to be the guardians of public safety show the ineptitude of our law enforcers and their utter disregard for human life.
According to the account of Mrs. de Vera "my husband's face was unrecognizable because he was shot in the head at close range while he was kneeling with his head bowed down. My daughter's young body was riddled with bullets, one hit her head, blowing her brains out, all from powerful guns and ammunition fired by the men in uniform on two innocent and defenseless persons." What was the only crime of the victims? They were mistaken for robbers while driving their SUV Crosswind in the vicinity of the shoot-out. Based on some eyewitness accounts, the police sprayed bullets on the van, despite the absence of any provocation from the van and in an effort to save their lives, Mr. De Vera grabbed his already bloodied daughter and run away from the van to seek cover from a parked jeepney. Nonetheless, he was shot at close range. How can one mistake a man clutching a bloodied girl for a robbery suspect? Or was this a case of eliminating the only witness who could pinpoint the killers of the girl?
As usual, after a few days in the news and as the victims are not well-known or influential persons in Philippine society, media stopped news coverage and the public is not aware whether the perpetrators of the crime have been brought to the bar of justice.
It has just been announced that Deepcar Post Office has been listed as one of the South Yorkshire branches down for closure. This proposed closure forms part of a Labour programme of some 2,500 new closures across the country.
Labour holds the record for closing Post Offices faster than any other government, almost 10 a week since 1997.
Spencer Pitfield, Conservative Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Penistone & Stocksbridge says:
"By the time of the next election Gordon Brown will have closed down a third of the entire Post Office network. Countless communities will lose their only shop and millions of vulnerable people will lose a service they depend upon. Ministers have taken no account of the needs of the elderly, of disabled people, or of the most disadvantaged - the very ones who will miss out most."
Spencer added: "Local Conservatives will fight to save Deepcar Post Office. Please sign our petition."
SAFER STREETS FOR HILL HEALTH CENTER – COLUMBUS AVE. OFFICE
As a supporter of this petition, I am hereby requesting that the City of New Haven get involved in assisting to resolve the continual problem of speeding traffic that we are experiencing, hoping to gain the respect for the crosswalk that is in front of the Hill Health Center on Columbus Ave and Surrounding territories.
Our Center serves over 150,000 patients a year and it is vitally important to us to follow up with the safety of the patients and together as a community begin to make the necessary changes in this crosswalk zone. It would be devastating to have someone get hurt or killed before something positive happens and in order to avoid this, I sincerely urge the City of New Haven to enforce a method of safety (perhaps a stop light) for our patients who remain at risk.

Kamal Begi, a Brampton Manor student, and his uncle have lost all their appeals and are under a threat of deportation despite having lived in the UK for over 6 years. They were initially granted a leave to remain for one year and then refused indefinite leave to remain.
We were shocked that a boy who has suffered so much trauma in Afghanistan, where his father was murdered and members of his family tortured, where he himself was held at a gun point as a child, a boy whose life would be in danger if he returned, is not being allowed to set up a new home here and is left worried for his well-being and future, pending the decision of the Home Office.
Kamal Begi and his uncle arrived in the UK and claimed asylum in January 2002. He joined Brampton Manor School in East Ham, London in September 2003 and has quickly become a valuable member of our school community. He is now leaving Year 11 having taken his GCSEs and is expected to achieve on or often above target in all his subjects. He is very ambitious and clear on what he wants to achieve in life. He has now been accepted to New Vic College where he plans to take his ‘A’ levels before going to University to study Business. Kamal has become a strong member of our school community and has settled in very well.
We have so far collected over a thousand signatures on paper in school that were handed over to Lyn Brown MP on 24th June 2008 in the House of Commons. We need more people to show their support for Kamal.
America- Put down your guns and listen to us for a while.
America - I think your wrong.
America- I will turn off my T.V. i don't need your insane messages anymore.
America - I have my own thoughts i would like to explore now.
America - Why do you want me dead.
America - I don't think we should block our borders. I don't want to live like this
America - I think you are the breed of terrorist in the world.
America - Why do you want me to hate man.
America- I know what your up to and i don't want to be know as you
America - If i was god i would look at you as the devil.
America - You have gone to far I can't listen to you anymore.
America - Why do you look at the word love as a four letter word
America - I think it's time we all leave you. We are having a bad relationship it's not good for the children.
America - I hope after we are gone one day you will find all of us and maybe then you will be one of us.
I think it's time we all should start being proactive and assertive in taking our civil liberties back. We can start with that, then we can work on getting other things back from the government. Peace

U.S.C. TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 47 § 1001.
(a) Except as otherwise provided in this section, WHOEVER, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and willfully—
(1) falsifies, conceals, or covers up by ANY trick, scheme, or device a material fact;
(2) makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation; or
(3) makes or USES any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry; shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.
(b) Subsection (a) does not apply to a party to a judicial proceeding, or that party's counsel, for statements, representations, writings or documents submitted by such party or counsel to a judge or magistrate in that proceeding.
(c) With respect to any matter within the jurisdiction of the legislative branch, subsection (a) shall apply only to—
(1) administrative matters, including a claim for payment, a matter related to the procurement of property or services, personnel or employment practices, or support services, or a document required by law, rule, or regulation to be submitted to the Congress or any office or officer within the legislative branch; or
(2) any investigation or review, conducted pursuant to the authority of any committee, subcommittee, commission or office of the Congress, consistent with applicable rules of the House or Senate.
SO HERE IS WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO
The Bush administration and their friends in the media want this story to go away. More than want it to go away, they are in a panic, and will do everything they can to stop it. They will use every dirty trick, every paid shill, every presstitute that they can. Already there is a report that the Michael Jackson jury is "expected" to reach a verdict just before the Conyers hearings.
So, I want YOU to copy this article off, post it everywhere. This article is placed in the public domain. Mail it to your friends. Then send it to your local media and your Congresscritters and have everyone you know do the same. Get on the phones. Flood their offices.
The term is "Viral Marketing" where you get the people who need a product to market it for you. Well, this nation NEEDS this "product". It needs to know that this war was started with lies. INTENTIONAL lies. And they need to know there is something they can do about it, and that is to start pounding on the doors of power.
Because when a flood of such messages reaches the Congress and the media, what they will hear is that there is no more time. Either they will deal with these lies and the liars, in full, or they will lose all credibility as a government and as media.
A government that lies to the people cannot be the legal government of this land. Make sure that they understand that YOU understand that the Constitution does not allow the government to lie to the people. Calling themselves the government does not make it so if they act unconstitutionally and illegally. The Constitution is the original "Contract with America" and a government that lies stands in clear breach of that contract.
THE TRUTH ABOUT HALLIBURTON
HALLIBURTON MIDDLE EAST CONTRACTS: CHENEY CONNECTION
“… the Pentagon findings on Halliburton overcharges are likely to fuel the allegations of favoritism, especially since it was revealed that the firm had been granted the contract to manage Iraq's oilfields, valued at up to $7 billion, without competition and without any bidding. Cheney's name inevitably surfaces
“Cheney(‘s)… links to Halliburton… have drawn intense scrutiny because he ran the company for five years and was given a $33 million payoff when he left to run for office. Before joining Halliburton he was secretary of defense, and in a position to know about and grant Pentagon contracts. Halliburton's military work has expanded over the past decade...
“During the decade of Halliburton's extraordinary growth, Cheney was the defense secretary for four years, from 1989-93, and then the chief executive of the company for five years, from 1995-2000.
“As vice president, Cheney has maintained his contacts with energy-industry executives and solicited their views in developing US energy policy. The secrecy of those contacts - which the White House refuses to divulge - is the subject of a US Supreme Court lawsuit.” - Halliburton Unscathed by Overcharge Flap
HALLIBURTON MIDDLE EAST CONTRACTS: WHISTLEBLOWER
In October of 2004, Bunnatine Greenhouse called the Halliburton Middle East contracts into question…
“… Greenhouse said that when the Pentagon awarded Halliburton a five-year $7 billion contract, it pressured her to withdraw her objections, actions which she claimed were unprecedented in her experience.
“… the Army gave the no-bid contracts to Halliburton's subsidiary KBR for political reasons. Greenhouse charged that contracts were approved over her reservations, some of which were handwritten on the original contracts, and extensions of contracts were awarded because underlings signed them in collusion with senior officials without her knowledge.
“Greenhouse claimed the Army… violated ‘the integrity of the federal contracting program as it relates to a major defense contractor’. ‘Employees of the U.S. government have taken improper action that favored KBR's interests,’ Greenhouse wrote. ‘This conduct has violated specific regulations and calls into question the independence’ of the contracting process.” - Halliburton Contracts Illegal - But Bush Busts The Whistleblower
For years A.L. Bozzelli's immaculate sculpture of this continent's discover Christopher Columbus has graced the entrance to the Administrative office of Bangor Area Highschool, but only weeks ago it had its home moved to DeFranco Elementary School.
Many students loved and cherished the statue and are distraught over their loss.
Not only did it perfectly accompany the corner of the room it was placed in, many students saw it as being the essence of life as a Bangor Area High School student.
At its new home it will no longer be able to fulfill this duty, nor will many students even be able to see it, every student past 6th grade for instance.

How many lives are blighted by house and/or car alarms that go off and keep going off for what seems like hours.
The alarm should be hooked up to a central office which should be picked up immediately and switched off and the police informed.
Instead the alarm continues to scream annoying everyone in the vicinity who never see a burglar in sight.
Other countries have a No Confidence provision in their laws in order to remove elected officials from office. I believe that this would be a benefit to the United States as well.
Currently, we have an Impeachment process that can be cumbersome, expensive and drawn-out.
A No Confidence Vote is a simple matter and can be written in such a manner as to provide for an orderly transition of power and in a way that the priviledge would not be able to be abused.

The head office at St.John's College has decided that we have gone to the public too often and has decided to limit fundraising to coupons at the beginning of each year. Thus they have decided to cancel any other fundraisers. This has deprived many children that ability to participate in educational trips.
Many children can not afford the price of the trips on their own, but with the help of the people in the community they are able to participate. In return for the support of the community, they receive a present of appreciation in return.
Since 1997 Labour have overseen the closure of 4,723 post offices. North West Leicestershire has lost many village Post Offices in places such as Blackfordby, Albert Village and Coleorton. Post Office branches are vital if we are to combat both social and financial exclusion, and this Government wants to continue destroy this vital network by closing a further 3000 Post Offices.
Conservative Parliamentary Spokesman for North West Leicestershire Andrew Bridgen advocates the freeing up of subpostmasters and postmistresses, to provide a greater range of products and services, as well as a scheme whereby people with concerns about a range of Government services can use their local Post Office as a kind of 'Government GP'. This can advise on issues such as tax returns, pension entitlements and the opening hours of local pharmacies.
During her 18+ years in office, the welfare of the citizens of Hollywood has not been served by Mara Giulianti.
She has repeatedly handed out tax incentives to wealthy builders, promoted rampant construction that has diminished the quality of life in Hollywood, and has shown little or no concern with the lives of middle and lower income residents.
Her removal from office would help Hollywood return to its roots as the "Diamond of the Gold Coast."

Dear Chief Louis Cavallo,
As a concerned resident of North Lauderdale, I am writing about the problem of racial profiling. Some officers stop motorists based solely on their race or ethnicity, thus violating their civil rights. I urge you to take action now to address this problem in our community by deciding to have your force voluntarily collect racial data at all stops of citizens.
Recently, I have been stopped by one of your officers, in fact on numerous occasions for no apparent reason. Maybe because I am an African American college student that drives a 2004 black Honda or maybe I look and fit the description of a young African American female that sells drugs in the community. Whatever the reason may be I do not appreciate being interrogated by your officers at not probable cause.
The most recent experienced happened on October 25, 2006. I was parked at my friends house, ready to exit my car, while office Perez blocked my car and began to ask me questions that were so inappropriate and uncalled for. He told me he could take me to jail for not wearing my glasses, mind you I was parked and getting ready to exit my car, when I saw him approach my window. He later asked me if the vehicle I was driving belonged to me and made smart remarks to my friend as she was getting in my car.
I find all this to be out of line. This is not the first time I had to go through this with one of your undercover officers. Their conduct is not appropriate and definitely it is not professional. I am asking that you take this matter seriously and speak to the officers in your department because the next step in this matter will be a civil law suit. I will also be forwarding this letter to the NAACP, Internal Affairs, The Police Complaint Center and the local news department. I also have a petition in progress.

The US Postal Service believes it will save money and make America's mail service more efficient if they implement a plan they devised to close and consolidate some of their facilities.
This includes their mail processing centers and also small branches and stations. The result will be reduced customer service and delays in your mail. This is being done nationwide and the effects could be devastating.
Recently, a rumor circulated that the Gilcrease Post Office was slated for possible closing. If so, it will be combined with the Downtown Tulsa Post Office and all the customers who use the Gilcrease office now would have to go all the way downtown to pick up parcels, certified letters and registered mail. Many of the residents of this community are senior citizens, black, hispanic, homeless and poor. They don't have the means to go anywhere else to get mail service, and the Postal Service is not even going to give the community any opportunity for input while they make the decision.
Their plan for this community is to leave the PO Box section at the current location and move everything else downtown. Eventually, they also plan to remove all stamp machines and as stated above, if any customer has mail to pick up, they will have to go downtown to do so.
The Postal Service was never intended to be a profitable business. It's mission is to bind the nation together through written correspondence....and provide "universal" mail service for everybody.
Closing and consolidating completely contradicts this mission and should be stopped.
According to the Briar Oaks Property Management Company, upon installation of the security gates located at the entrance to the community, these gates will only be secured from 7pm until 7am daily, and left open the remainder of each day.

To save ourselves, we need to Save The FDA!
The FDA is beholden to Big Pharma rather than the other way around. This is evident since the FDA:
1) lets Big Pharma get away with keeping its defective products on the market - even though they may cause you to die!
2) prevents you from buying Canadian and other low cost medicines -
thereby trying to help eliminate Big Pharma's competition... at great cost to you!
3) lets Big Pharma get away with rewarding your doctor for prescribing you less safe and more expensive medications... that you may not even need.
4) is trying to ban and discredit natural herbs and supplements -
to help Big Pharma eliminate its competition... at great cost to you!
5) continues to permit manufacturers of sunscreen and sunblock lotions to sell their fraudulently labeled and misrepresented as effective, products.
We, the undersigned, petition the Department of Health and Human Services to promptly create an office that oversees the FDA ensuring that the FDA promptly:
1) becomes the people's fiduciary and puts the interests of the American people before the interests of industry and profits, ensuring truth and ***proactively*** prevents collusion and fraud by weeding out those individuals on payroll or otherwise, who put their personal agenda before the agenda of the FDA.
2) creates an independent office that reviews the safety of drugs already on the market, separate from the office that puts drugs on the market in the first place.
3) seeks to help lower the cost of medicines and health care for the American people and helps encourage innovation by helping promote competition for the pharmaceutical and health care industries through the importation of safe medicines and other health care products and services from other countries.
4) mandates that doctors be required to disclose to their patients the costs and risks of all medicine choices - including generic alternatives.
5) mandates that Big Pharma does not use doctors (and others who prescribe medicine) as salesmen; That if Big Pharma provides trips, freebies and other perks to those who practice medicine, it must do so without preference to those who bring in the most business.
6) helps to ensure the safety of natural herbs, remedies and products that compete with Big Pharma's products - not to ban them or discredit
their value without actual independent proof - studies not sponsored by Big Pharma.
7) quits its vendetta against the herb, ephedra and doesn't attack other herbs without merit. Unless a natural substance is more dangerous than its synthetic form, it's disingenuous to prohibit the sale of the natural substance if the synthetic form can be sold without a prescription.
8) promptly addresses the legitimacy of sunscreen and sunblock products and prohibits fraudulent labeling and misrepresentation of efficacy in blocking harmful ultraviolet radiation.

Innocent Nkung, a teacher and human rights campaigner, arrived in the UK in May 2005 after fleeing for his life from the "Democratic" Republic of Congo where he had been demonstrating for free elections and for an end to the large-scale attrocities and human rights abuses that the Congolese people are currently facing.
He is being supported by local people who have helped him in his campaign to stay in the UK. We have been raising awareness of the issues in Congo by arranging Congolese social evenings for the community with traditional food and music.
Here we have discussed such topics as the reasons for the poverty in Africa and the refugee crisis and why globally we are all responsible. Innocent has given so much to our community in terms of devoting the majority of his time to volunteering for good causes and in providing unpaid french tuition to school children and we continue to support him in his aim to present 5,000 signatures to the UK Home Office to support his application for asylum.
He has also gained the support of our local media, our MP and the UK Respect Party. At present we have 3,000 signatures and we hope to reach our target by the end of July when we shall present them to the Government.
If we fail and the Government decide to ignore all the current evidence of what awaits those deported back to Congo, this warm and amiable man will certainly be murdered upon his return.
