Whereas, citizens of Greensboro want, need, and will support a police department that provides for public safety, crime prevention, and acts within the rule of law
Whereas, citizens of Greensboro want and expect police department employees to be racially and ethnically diverse and to be well trained to ensure equal protection of the law for all people regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, economic status, immigration status, sexual orientation, or religious orientation
Whereas, allegations of Greensboro police unaccountability, unprofessionalism, discrimination, abuse of power, and excessive use of force have been raised for decades and such allegations are currently reflected in the existence of 38 pending lawsuits, 11 Title VI federal discrimination complaints, and the termination of under questionable circumstances of four veteran police officers
Whereas, our State Constitution reads: “All political power is vested in and derived from the people; all governments of right originates from the people, is founded upon their will only, and is instituted solely for the good of the whole;”
Whereas, citizen police oversight bodies exist in approximately 80% of the large cities in the U.S, including Charlotte, Durham, Winston-Salem, NC, and

The National Government of the Republic of West Papua in exile wants to bring those responsible for decades of torture, genocide and human rights violations against the people of West Papua to justice.
The goal with this petition is to collect 100.000 signatures and send a request to the icc
(International Criminal Court, in The Hague),
to start investigating crimes against humanity committed by the TNI(Indonesian army) & Kopassus(Special forces) against the people of West Papua, since 1969). This includes the terrible massacre of Biak, in 1998 in West Papua where three hundred peaceful protesting Papuans were mercilessly tied up and thrown in the ocean, by special TNI and Kopassus units of the Indonesian army.
The Government are proposing that the e-cigarette is to be given out through Medical means. If enough people support and sign this petition the Governments will HAVE to listen to THE PEOPLE for a change.
I personally believe that the Governments only want to have control of the e-cigarette industry for their own greed ie; they will be losing out on the tax revenue that is applied to tobacco cigarettes and that by gaining control they would then tax the e-cigarette (Please Note that that is only MY opinion).
Let us smokers be the ones to decide when and how we achieve to stop smoking the tobacco that is killing so many, not only with the tar and other vile substances the government has approved to put into cigarettes, but by standing up for the civil right to do so.
Yes I believe that there should be an age limit on buyers of the e-cig and also a regulation on the purity of the e-liquid, other than that let the government finally leave us in PEACE.
Did you know -
To become a Plastic surgeon, you need to have, not only completed a medical degree, but an additional 8-10 years in post-graduate surgical training. Two to five of these years are spent in general surgical training and a further four years in specialty plastic and cosmetic surgery training.
This in-depth and lengthy training in Plastic surgery culminates in a qualification called the Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS).
It is important to know that only qualified Plastic Surgeons can then become a member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the Australian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS).
Becoming a cosmetic surgeon -
In order to call yourself a cosmetic surgeon, all you need to do is to have a basic medical degree. There are no legal requirements for doctors to train in surgery and call themselves a’ surgeon’, and there are many untrained doctors performing breast operations, and liposuction.
The general public have the right to be treated by only the most qualified of Plastic Surgeons. Regulation needs to happen NOW!

This petition is in support of sidewalk installation in regards to the ongoing safety issues in Cliffside Village.
Bullying has been a major issue in schools across America. It puts children in dangerous situations and should be stopped.
The Safe Schools Improvement Act states that schools should develop programs and codes of conduct, funded by the federal government, prohibiting bullying and harassment.
This act should be passed in order to create a safer environment for children in schools.
Youth in our nation need times of prayer and Biblical teaching in order to properly make decisions, and need to be encouraged to follow the LORD JESUS CHRIST who alone should be our law giver, judge and King.
Along with requesting times of prayer and Biblical classes in schools, we the undersigned also demand that all evolution classes and classes teaching non-biblical principals be stopped at once since this is teaching a lie to our youth. As the founders of this nation stated, "We are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights .. . .." The founders of this country proclaimed a Creator, as do we. HIS name is JESUS CHRIST.
Ontario works is supposed to help women get back on their feet. It isn't! women are going on this welfare system and never getting off. They see it as free money. They keep having more kids and acting like they don't know who the daddy is. They are taking up spots in the day care system and still not working.
We should have something in the system to stop this. There should be a limited time frame for the people to be on it. Not a forever program. I believe one year is more than enough time. If you have more kids while you are on welfare you get cut off. We can not keep paying for people to sit at home and take advantage of this system. Most have males living with them.
Ontario works doesn't do home visits anymore to insure that the people are not lying. Large groups are using their money for drugs and alcohol not spending it on the children and housing. if a person on the welfare system can afford monthly car payments and insurance something is wrong. As a tax payer I am getting upset that we allow this to continue.
Premier Redford has lost the trust of Albertans and it is time for her to step down.

Some serious scams are happening in our country including corporate frauds. The latest is the chit fund fraud of the sharda group in the state of west bengal along with the other serious frauds happening across the country where huge public money is being lost. As an institute specialized in accounting, why an action is not being initiated from the institute’s side to safeguard the interest of the “AAM AADMI”.
Even the way the electricity bills and oil prices are increasing, its becoming very difficult for the consumers to take the extra burden now and therefore the cost audit reports which are prepared by the cost accountants should be informed to public so that the public can know the actual cost of the products which the people are consuming.
People who support the view and want this to reach the president of our institute and the other concerned authorities may sign the petition.
I request all the people to sign and circulate this petition.

Previous to CIWAA's inception the WCB and the Government have relied on Injured Workers inability to organize and remain fragmented leaving many voices without a united message.
We must unite all the Injured Workers under one group and one message. That group is CIWAA and that message is We will not allow WCB to deny legitimate claims of Injured Workers in order for corporate Alberta to benefit with the lowest WCB premiums in Canada at Injured Workers expense.
NOTICE: The name and address of every person who signs this petition may be made available to the public if the petition is in proper form to be presented to the Legislative Assembly.

Millions of plastic bottles and cans get wasted every year. What is plastic?
A plastic material is any of a wide range of synthetic or semi-synthetic organic solids that are moldable. Plastics are typically organic polymers of high molecular mass, but they often contain other substances. They are usually synthetic, most commonly derived from petrochemicals, but many are partially natural.
Remember, plastic doesn't fade over the years. It's forever stuck on Earth unless it's recycled.
Australia offers only one 10c deposit location in Australia and that's in South Australia. I am creating this petition to change this, to change the world and most importantly CHANGE AUSTRALIA.
We need to create more deposit centres to save our world.
Future Star Wars video games, Star Wars: First Assault and Star Wars 1313, have already been leaked and administered to the public by LucasArts and a majority of hardcore and casual gamers have been looking forward to these games ever since the trailers had been released.
Now Disney have shut them down it is not fair for them to have a CANCELLED final game(s), and its not fair on the public who have been so patiently waiting for these games to be released. It does not seem morally right for any company (ESPECIALLY Disney) to do something like this. You never leave a job half done! A Lucasarts representative has this to say:
“After evaluating our position in the games market, we’ve decided to shift LucasArts from an internal development to a licensing model, minimizing the company’s risk while achieving a broader portfolio of quality Star Wars games. As a result of this change, we’ve had layoffs across the organization. We are incredibly appreciative and proud of the talented teams who have been developing our new titles.”
On March 27, 2013, there was an incident involving a student who refused to go to the office when asked by the security guard to do so. The security guard grabbed the student and made the student walk to the office.
The security guard was then asked to leave the school and was subsequently relieved of his employment at Medway High school.
Australian Dairy farming is an industry of national significance, embedded as the backbone of many communities in regional areas.
Farming people have provided a rich heritage of hard working Australians, a legacy that remains integral to the tapestry of our modern culture. Dairy farming is an essential component of the Australian economy, generating $4billion through the farm gate in 2011/12, and creating employment for an estimated 50,000 people on farms, in manufacturing and other directly related industries. (Dairy Australia Annual Report 2011/12)

The Wilson Highschool Tennis Courts in Long Beach, CA have been vandalized for people have cut the nets, oiled the courts, and thrown shattered glass. Unfortunately, because of vandalism and without the money to hire a supervisor, the City has closed the Wilson Tennis Courts in Long Beach, CA to the public, taking it away from the community.
My name is Michelle Truong and I'm a sophomore at Wilson Classical Highschool(right next to the tennis courts). With the help of my team and whnever time allows, we are trying to raise $4,500 to reopen the courts. This has upset me and my community for we had no say in the decision of closing the courts. I have petitioned and written a complaint letter to the City. I have even written to Roger Federer for assistance. I need help reopening the tennis courts to the community. I deeply feel that it's wrong for the City to take away the rights of the public and I need help.
Press Telegram has even written a column of my efforts which can be viewed here: http://www.presstelegram.com/columnists/ci_22691362/shore-patrol-wilson-classical-tennis-players-find-access
I have contacted USTA (United States Tennis Association) and I have even written a letter to Roger Federer and several other famous tennis players for help. Press Telegram has even written a column of my efforts. I want to spread the news and get more people involved. Whenever time allows, my team and I will try to fund-raise the $4,500 it takes to hire a supervisor to supervise the courts.
We, the people of Long Beach and supporters for this cause, encourage the Re-Opening of the Wilson Tennis Courts to the public. The City should Reopen the Tennis Courts to the public on the weekends to allow children and the people the time, space, and opportunity to play, and preserve the community’s right to enjoy tennis by using the tennis courts that their property taxes pay for.
Telecommunication providers in Singapore have failed to comply with the telecommunications QoS standards regulated by IDA from time to time.
Telecommunication providers should not only just be responsible for internet communications, but also telecommunications which consumers been paying the monthly bills. However the matter of fact, consumers have not been receiving the expected level of service standards as according.
It is evident that there have been numerous incidents of non-compliance or service disruptions across all the major telecommunication providers which have caused consumers to be greatly affected due to the reliance on these service providers.
As far as telecommunication providers try to mask their shortcomings, through many engagements between representatives and its consumers, there were many lies which were gradually unfolded to the consumers have greatly impacted the company itself to its dishonesty and integrity of business ethnics.
This petition is written in context to Singapore Telecommunications Limited, SingTel. It is evident that SingTel has not been honest to its consumers with its products and services. Individual Customer Service Officer would deliver not only standard FAQ answers to its customers, also at the same time, very deliberately a lack of knowledge on SingTel's products and services; in turn have caused great amount of confusion to its customers at stake.
Not only should Customer Service Officers be aware of customer recovery; the telecommunication provider have failed to provide a satisfactory service to its customers. Services that ranged from mioTV, Internet (ADSL, Fiber Optic), Mobile Network (3G, 4G), as well as other products and services under SingTel.
Firstly, there have been many cases where SingTel mioTV's performance has not been up to standard. Regular pauses of imagery, slight distortions, pixelized imagery, freezes, downtimes, as well as the recent disruptions that caused an uproar, are not part of the deal with what consumers subscribed for.
Secondly, SingTel's Internet Service performances of its unreliability. Internet, one of the most important technology we can't live without, where communication begins with the internet.
However, with SingTel's ADSL or even Fiber Optic subscription plans, it seems otherwise. Internet disruptions and downtimes are very common. Besides that, it is evident that its products supporting the internet communication have failed regularly, hence, the cause of intermittent connections to the internet. It is evident even through a simple streaming of videos online would jam for a while due to buffering. Many technical employees and employees of SingTel would constantly sell customers lies to buy regarding the background of Fiber Optic to cover most of their shortcomings. Is that what really happen to your loading time even with Fiber Optic Subscription?
Furthermore, it is clear that with Fiber Optic, transmission via light, there should be lesser issues compared to ADSL. However, these were nothing but rumours. Even with Fiber Optic subscription, streaming of videos do factor in buffering time, page would stop loading all of a sudden, the unavailability of web pages, yet the same time the ability to troubleshoot a ping to its Residential Gateway. These common issues among its customers are more than evident its poor services.
Lastly, the mobile network performance of its unreliability. Mobile phone is the basic to communication we all are using in this era of technology. Without communication, information would not have been successfully been relayed.
However, SingTel's infrastructure to its mobile network have regularly failed its customers both incoming and outgoing calls. In both scenarios where a customer is making an outgoing call or receiving an incoming call, the probability of a call failure is high with SingTel.
SingTel claims that the causes are due to the mobile phone, its connectivity to its broadcast towers, and other unknown factors which also have been proven otherwise. Furthermore, consumers faced common issues with its 3G network at various locations, and worst, in times of emergency, its users are unable to establish a call out for help with SingTel's poor infrastructure and connectivity islandwide.
The above statements are collectively the feedbacks, comments and voices, of SingTel customers where services are not up to standards the amount billed monthly. If Singapore preaches about being a "World-Class Service" to its customers, then this should be the first to be rectified serving its citizens with "World-Class Service" not just to our tourists.
It is clear that these has caused SingTel to fall into breach of any service industry best practice on communications with customers.
There is a proposal in place to subdivide the Deadman Ranch along Wyoming's Greys River into 30 lots (up to 70 in the future), convenience store, and RV Park. The developers assert that the public will favor this because they will enjoy the convenience of a store in the heart of Greys River.
However, people choose to recreate in Greys River precisely because there’s not a convenience store, subdivision, RV park, etc. in the middle of it.
Let us keep this beautiful area pristine and petition the Lincoln County Planning Commission to reject the Blind Bull Meadows subdivision proposal!
Teletoon used to have tons of great shows that all ages could enjoy such as the Johnny Bravo, Courage The Cowardly Dog, Doodlez, Fly Tales, Ed Edd & Eddy, Angela Anaconda, BraceFace, What About Mimi, Padington Bear, Bugs Bunny & Tweety Show, Scooby Doo Where Are You? What's With Andy Etc Etc Etc....
All Theses Shows Were Amazing and filled our lives with joy But something else that was fantastic was the Promos and There Old Logo. There New Logo is so boring and bland.
They stopped making those shows in favor of shows that are suitable ONLY for younger audiences (age 7 and down). We want to get these shows back on the air as re-runs.
Please Support This Even If You're Not Into these shows and show your support.
This year it was announced that Vans Warped Tour would be returning to Australia and will not be coming to Perth. As we get Soundwave and completely sell out tickets for Perth Soundwave I see no reason for us to miss out on another popular festival with similar music.
"Soundwave boss AJ Maddah will team up with Warped founder Kevin Lyman to bring the festival back to Australia and has confirmed that the tour will travel to Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and a couple of regional centers on the east coast. Perth will not be on the schedule."( - http://www.fasterlouder.com.au ) This is ridiculous. As the manager of Soundwave he should see Perth as a potential market and we need to show him we want the festival as much as the festival wants us.
The festival came to Australia for the first time in 1998 and never came to Perth either. Its time for a change! Grab your keyboards and lets show the Perth music scene isn't as weak as they perceive.
The Ministry of Education have proposed that Central New Brighton School merge with South New Brighton School on their site in Estuary Road. The date of this proposed merger is January 2014. The original date of the merger was 2016.
We believe the shortened time frame will not allow enough time to:
# gather all the relevant information needed on land and building needs at SNB school.
# upgrade SNB school to accommodate 100 new students in suitable 'modern learning' environments.
#follow the merger process so that staff are appointed, a needs analysis is completed and a vision for the new school is created.
# integrate all children so that the merger is seamless and children's learning at both schools is not iinterrupted.
# see what demographic changes may occur in the East in the next three years.
# allow families to keep the current stability they have with schooling while there are still so many other aspects of their lives that are physically and emotionally of concern and unsettling as a result of the 2011 and on-going earthquakes.

Whereas the illegal transfer of Music has taken over Liberia;
Whereas the Copy Right Law of Liberia has become toothless;
Whereas Musicians have been denied their rights to use their talents to survive;
Whereas Liberia is losing too much money from the music and entertainment industry;
Whereas even the law enforcers have become a part of the copyright violation in Liberia; and in as much as the musicians in Bong County have tried to appeal to those transferring their music to desist but failed;
We have therefore decided to ask the government of Liberia to:
Note the first amendment in the Bill of Rights. Everyone has a road to happiness. Many people who can't marry aren't happy.
Greggory Savelio, a senior at Westwood College, was on his way to work on August 22nd 2009 at approximately 5:30 pm when he stopped to pump gas in Dekalb County at the Chevron gas station located at 2450 Candler Road, Decatur, Georgia. A man approached Gregg in a robbery attempt and he was shot and killed. The gas station did not have any outside surveillance cameras so the perpetrator was able to flee the scene. The killer later committed the same act with another innocent victim at a different gas station, but was eventually caught because this location did have outside surveillance cameras on property.
The Chevron did not have outside video surveillance at the pumps where Gregg was robbed and shot, and we believe if there had been a camera in place this would have helped find Gregg’s killers immediately, and possibly even deterred Gregg’s killers from targeting him. One of Gregg’s killers was apprehended but unfortunately, due to the fact that he was not apprehended immediately he was able to flee and commit another robbery and murder another man less than a month later in Richmond County Georgia.
Gregg’s murder was committed in broad daylight and had there been outside surveillance (of quality nature) Gregg’s killers would have likely been identified and arrested immediately.
Noticeable outside video surveillance at gas pumps would deter criminals from targeting patrons, and in the event a crime is committed, the surveillance would help the investigation in apprehending the criminal(s).
