Because Fifty Shades was inspired by Edward and Bella, it's only fair they get the chance to be the main characters of this story
The 2011 City budget proposes to add adult user fees at Jimmie Simpson. This means that unless you qualify for the city’s “Welcome Policy” that Adult Programs at Jimmie Simpson will cost between $48 and $75 for a 9 week session.
If we don't do anything about it now, the City can continue doing this for all the other free community centers that some of us need.
Following the recent UK Government Spending Review, the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham Council is considering, amongst other things, making cuts to the local library service. Central to this strategy is the proposed closure of the Robert Jeyes Library, Chadwell Heath.
This popular library provides a vital local service for a large section of the community. Services include; book, cd and dvd lending, reference books, sheet music, Internet access, craft activities, book clubs, local history collections.
Robert Jeyes Library is at the heart of the community in Chadwell Heath and it is vital that it stays open as a resource for all.
In 1981, Robert Graham was convicted of a murder crime in his hometown of Lake Providence, La. He was given a life sentence and is still serving time in the Angola State Prison System in the state of Louisiana. The evidence was shabby, but Robert was arrested and convicted, because he and the victim were in a previous altercation the night of the victim's death, at a local night club.
In addition, Robert pleaded guilty, because he believed that he might have stabbed the victim during the public altercation in the night club. He presented the weapon to the police.
Law enforcement accepted his word and therefore no investigation was done. Robert Graham's mother is requesting his release for time served or a transfer to a minimum security facility, closer to home. His mother is a senior citizen and no longer able to travel to visit him in his present location.
The Psychology Department at UCSD has come to the decision of declining Dr. Robert Epstein his position teaching infamously beloved classes, not for any budget reasons, but because the Department has expressed a manner of discomfort at the amount of press coverage and popularity of his courses.
The UCSD Psychology Homepage boasts, "The Department of Psychology at UCSD consistently ranks among the top experimental psychology programs in the country. From its founding in 1965 by George Mandler, the department now names among its faculty many of the world's leading experts in cognition, learning, memory, perception, attention, language, autism, emotion, and social relationships." To anyone that knows even the slightest bit about Dr. Epstein, whether they've noted how he effortlessly pulls off wearing a Beatles Abbey Road shirt underneath a casual suit or they've known about his 14 books or numerous television appearances, it's evident that they're talking about him when they post such a statement. Losing such a valuable asset would be devastating for not only the school, but it's students as well.
Just a few of the accomplishments of Dr. Epstein include; editor-in-chief of Psychology Today, contributing editor for Scientific American Mind, columnist ("The Skeptical Psychologist") for Skeptical Inquirer magazine, founder and Director Emeritus of the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies in Massachusetts, host of a number of psychology-related radio programs(particularly Psyched!®), author, father of four, and longtime psychology researcher and professor.
Dr. Robert Epstein has brought life to learning and creativity into classrooms. His impressive accomplishments and flawless feedback from students only solidifies the reasons why UCSD needs Dr. Epstein. The University would gain no benefit from denying him his position here at UCSD.
"During my tenure as Department Chair,
our staff in charge of undergraduate
affairs were virtually inundated with
students coming to them raving about
Epstein's class, and asking that he be
hired to teach future classes."
Ben A. Williams, Professor of Psychology,
University of California San Diego
A Scottish Clan without a chief is like a fish without water. For 200 years Clan Cunningham has been without a chief to lead us since the death of the last chief in 1796.
Fortunately the last four chiefs were unified in their designation of a female line as heirs should their male-heir line fail, and we have found the eldest descendant of that line.
Therefore it it time to have him recognized by the Crown through Lord Lyon and take the leadership in Clan Cunningham.
-Moratorium against the use of tasers by the police and the transit security;
-the use of tasers by transit police is far outside guidelines that say they should be used only if someone is suicidal, violent or about to injure himself or someone else;
-Translink police are Canada's only armed transit police force;
-60 more people have died since Robert Dziekanski after being Tasered by police, including five Canadians;
-At least 286 people in North America have died since 2001 after being stunned by the TASER's 50,000 volt discharge
-There is no way of knowing whether individual Taser weapons meet the manufacturer's specifications;
-There are no Canadian safety testing standards of any kind for the devices;
-It is entirely possible that some weapons discharge much more electrical energy than they are supposed to, and that police officers are unwittingly killing people as a result;
-TASER and the law enforcement community often point to other factors that they say actually cause death;
-such as drug or alcohol use or a phenomenon they have coined "excited delirium", which is not a recognized medical condition;
-TASER International says so-called "excited delirium" is a potentially fatal condition.
-Here are some questions: How many people have died of "excited delirium" in the last five years in situations that did not involve law enforcement? Do people only reach potentially lethal levels of excitement or delirium when they are accosted by peace officers?
-Tasers are arguably being overused by police;
-They have reportedly been used to shock children as young as six (in Florida) and an 82 year old woman was recently shocked in Chicago;
-Amnesty International studied 271 fatalities and found that the victim was unarmed in all but 22 of the cases. Most of these victims were no risk to anyone.
In March 2008 Cartoon Network announced Robert Swartz as its new VP of original programming. Along with leading development and current teams, Swartz oversees development of all animated, live-action and alternative series for the network.
Being a longtime viewer of Cartoon Network for the past 15 years of my life, it disappoints me to say that this business endeavor has become a harsh and unnecessary decision with little success and has left fans of Cartoon Network with false hopes.
Since Mr. Swartz has been VP, Cartoon Network has lost several blocks (Toonami, Tickle U, Funny For Your Face, New Thursday Nights, Cartoon Cartoons), invested in poor-quality flash shorts (Nacho Bear, Mr. Bixby, Big Baby, Roller Squirrels, Calling Cat 22), and during a possibly profitable summer season in 2008 Swartz spent time plugging reruns of shows with less than 30 episodes each (George of the Jungle, Chowder, Flapjack, Total Drama Island, Johnny Test) in random order, lacking stability in channel’s structure.
This has sadly lead Cartoon Network to an unusual third place ranking in cable programming at the hands of Nickelodeon, Disney and their sister networks.
Since Swartz’s position, he has developed a passion for taking good ideas and turning them into desperately cheesy attempts to attract viewers. For example, at the beginning of August 2007, Fried Dynamite was developed to replace the long-running Fridays series. This was a big adjustment to many fans, but the block appeared to hold its own until it was donned the hot spot for recycled TV movies (Ace Ventura, The Mask, Operation Dumbo Drop, etc.). With all due respect to Mr. Swartz’s attempts, this has NOT been a good idea. Even if the spin-off Dynamite Action Squad has profited, lack of attention to Fried Dynamite (Including bad program choices) has led publicity to blocks created solely to provide cheap filler (Such as “Flicks” as they’ve been known by lately).
It would be insulting to say that Swartz hasn’t brought anything good to the network, because he has successfully picked up shows that were let go by Kid’s WB (Skunk Fu, Johnny Test), and has brought in some unique Cartoon Network originals such as Flapjack and Ben 10: Alien Force. But Mr. Swartz’s problem is he lacks credit to the cartoon genre. His previous credit before becoming VP for Cartoon Network was VP of original programming for the Sci-Fi network, for shows like Mythbusters and Destination: Truth.
Since taking place in Cartoon Network his ideas have fallen on deaf ears, now clawing to spin offs to popular movies (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and yet another action-based program (Secret Saturdays) created by Porch Light Entertainment.
Serj Sarkisian and Robert Kocharyan are doing their best to ruin a county that is our Home land Armenia.
The have faked the Presidential Elections in favor of Serj so he can be the next president following Robert.
But that is no way to run a country. The people have their rightd too and we need our freedom.
In 1993, Robert Latimer killed his 12 year old daughter, Tracy. She had cerebral palsy and had many, many surgeries to correct this, and she was about to go for another one before she passed.
After he was convicted of second degree murder in 1994, a new trial was declared for Latimer, because it was brought to light that some jury members were asked what they thought of euthanasia and mercy killings. In 1997, the second trial jury reached the conclusion of second degree murder, but be allowed to apply for parole in one year. Three weeks later, Justice Judge Ted Noble gives Latimer "constitutional exemption" and gives him two years, one which would be served in the community.
The Saskatchewan Court of Appeals scratched that, and gave him life with parole in 10 years. No appeals worked after that, so now he sits in a minimum security prison in B.C. Today (Dec. 5), his bid for day parole was denied, because he still maintains that he felt it was the right decision.
This petition is started to give Mr. Robert Dziekanski justice, and also justice to his mother and family. It is started as well to protect all of us that live in Canada. If this incident is allowed to "disappear" and be quietly "resolved", then it WILL happen again.
It is high time that the R.C.M.P. be held truly accountable for their actions this time. The R.C.M.P. have demonstrated that they have no respect for either the weapon (Taser Gun) or the people of whom they inflict it upon.
This gentleman had died at the R.C.M.P.'s hands in less time than it takes to make a cup of coffee and they made ABSOLUTELY NO ATTEMPT to help him. Please see the video link below for the tragedy that unfolded.
Please see video here.

This man was dead in minutes.
If they (R.C.M.P.) are allowed to continue onwards WITHOUT any reprimand whatsoever, what does that say for our quality of life in Canada, and how we as Canadians regard it? More importantly, what does that say about how we that live in Canada will be treated by the R.C.M.P. in the future?
If it happened to him, it can happen to anyone. That has been shown now, as the latest incident at the Vancouver International Airport clearly demonstrates.
**RCMP arrived shortly after 1:30 a.m. and Dziekanski was dead within minutes.**

**The incident is being investigated by the RCMP's civilian oversight body.**

How can any justice be served when the R.C.M.P are being investigated by their "civilian Body"???
The answer is simple. It can't. Period.
Before someone else's father, son, brother, or even sister, daughter, mother dies this way again, we MUST ban Taser guns. 17 people to this date have died in Canada since 2003.

**2006 Taser-related death toll: 65
January 3, 2007
Sixty-five more people died in North America after being Tasered by police in 2006, bringing the total number of such fatalities to 232. The Taser is a controversial "less than lethal" weapon that is designed to inflict excruciating pain and incapacitate subjects with 50,000 volts of electricity. Despite the number of Taser-related deaths, and the deaths of a number of animals as well, the manufacturer and law enforcement officials maintain the weapon is safe.**
This is also courtesy with thanks from A. Cameron Ward & Company, BARRISTERS & SOLICITORS, Vancouver, BC.
**An unidentified man died after he was Tasered by RCMP at the Vancouver International Airport early this morning. He is at least the 283rd person to die in North America after being shocked with the Taser's 50,000 volt electrical output. Sixteen of those deaths have occurred in Canada since 2003, and the latest is the sixth BC fatality. The RCMP has been involved in eight of the Canadian deaths.
The police will investigate this incident themselves and clear the Taser of any responsibility, perhaps blaming the unfortunate man's death on "excited delerium", which is not a recognised medical condition.
The Taser was quietly introduced into Canada in 2000, without any public debate or prior independent safety testing. Although electric fences and cattle prods must undergo rigorous tests before being sold, the Taser is subject to no such control.**

**In a recently released report, Amnesty International outlines how the use of tasers by law enforcement officers in Canada raises a number of concerns. The first is the more serious, but less widespread incidence of death following taser use, while the second is the pervasive inappropriate use of the weapon.**
Need I say more?
We must serve the proper justice to his Mother and to Robert Dziekanski himself. Most importantly, we must use the freedom of speech that we value and cherish to ensure that this never happens again, and speak up NOW!
After all, if we don't, then who will?
UPDATE 11/3/08: Russell Carroll's parole hearing has been scheduled for December 2008.
UPDATE, 2/16/2007: Russell Carroll has been denied parole for this year. Thank you all for your continued support and kind words. I am keeping this petition up and active, as his next parole hearing is scheduled for February 2009.
On April 10, 1980, NYPD Officer Robert Sorrentino of the 101st Pct. was shot three times while chasing several robbery suspects in Far Rockaway, Queens.
He and his partner had split up to chase the suspects who had also split up. After his partner captured one of the suspects, he heard shots fired and ran to the scene where he found Officer Sorrentino suffering gunshot wounds.
He was transported to a local hospital and, after undergoing more than fifteen hours of surgery, the removal of one of his kidneys, and extensive repairs to his pancreas, the married father of three later died from his wounds on April 24, 1980. The five men were sentenced on 106 counts of felony murder, robbery, and weapons charges. They were all given the maximum sentence, 25 years to life. All but one have since died in prison.
Russell Carroll, who was on parole at the time he committed this crime, is up for parole for the second time in February 2007, and will be eligible for parole every two years after that. My family, still grieving, do not want to see this man go free.

While out on sick leave Robert Burkett was replaced as meat manager and forced to take a job at half the pay and less than half the hours.
Robert Burkett has three sick parents and a disabled wife at home to provide for.
Robert Jovicic is a man without state.
Born of Serbian parents, he arrived in Australia from France when he was two years old. He has lived 36 of his 38 years in Australia.
In 2004,Immigration Minister Philip Ruddock deported him on character grounds after he was jailed for several burglaries to support a heroin addiction.
Desperate to return to his home country, he camps outside the Australian embassy every night.His health is not good, and his family believe he will die if not returned home before the onset of European winter.
He speaks no Serbian & only speaks English,with,as you'd expect,an Australian accent.He wants to come home to his family in Melbourne.
The Serbian gov't do not recognise him as a citizen,& as a result he cannot work, receive welfare or medical services & is virtually destitute
Effectively,he has been dumped there,in a country that is an absolute stranger to him.
If he lacks Australian citizenship,he is an Australian in all the ways that matter-his family is there & he knows no other home.
While in many cases it is reasonable for a nation to exclude criminals from residency in order to uphold the rule of law & national security,I believe this is a case that warrants mercy. Addiction is a terrible illness This man is too unwell to be a threat. Without access to housing or medical care his situation is dire.No man should be left to die without a state.
Australians have long prided themselves on being a land that gives people "a fair go". I urge the Prime Minister to show that justice can be tempered with mercy,and give this ill man a 'fair go'at staying alive,by simply being allowed to COME HOME.

ROBERT WAYNE JOHNS STABBED MULTIPLE TIMES AND SHOT TO DEATH DONALD H. PRICE IN KUNA, IDAHO IN MARCH 1985.
AFTER MURDERING MR. PRICE, ROBERT W. JOHNS TRIED TO HIDE THE BODY AND ROBBED DON PRICE OF HIS IDENTIFICATION SO HE WOULD BE FOUND AS A JOHN DOE. THE ADA COUNTY SHERIFF REPORT NOTES THAT MR JOHNS WAS SEEN LAUGHING ABOUT THE MURDER AND GIVING THE THUMBS UP AFTER FLEEING THE SCENE OF THE CRIME. DONALD H. PRICE WAS 37, HE WAS A FATHER, A SON, A BROTHER, AN UNCLE AND A FRIEND. HE WOULD HAVE BEEN A GRANDFATHER FOR THE FIRST TIME IN JUNE OF 2005. THOSE OF US WHO LOVED HIM ARE LEFT WITH A VOID IN OUR LIVES THAT NOTHING CAN EVER FILL. PROTECT YOURSELVES AND YOUR LOVED ONES FROM THIS HAPPENING TO YOU.
WE THE UNDERSIGNED BELIEVE THAT ROBERT W. JOHNS SHOULD REMAIN IN PRISON AS IT WOULD BE AN INJUSTICE TO THE FAMILY AS WELL ENDANGER OUR SOCIETY IF HE WERE GIVEN PAROLE.
My child was given 3 day suspention and then we went to a hearing and he was given 20 days DAEC for hitting another student, who for the entire school year, has been inciting and engaging in bullying, intimidation by name calling, using derogatory statements that finally disrupted the school program to incite violence as the only means to defend himself (the school has done nothing to the other boys, other than telling one boy to go tell the other two to knock it off).
This is not acceptable and needs to be handled in an appropriate fair manner for all concerned. We consider this discrimination and would like a fair hearing with School board, Principal, councelors and students teachers, to come to a fair ruling to all the students involved and put an end to this type of behavior, which these 3 boys have been getting away with for years,.
Advisor slams bike skills
'Improving motorcyclists skills merely means they kill themselves in a more skilled way,' according to one of the Government's top advisors on
transport. And when MCN contacted Robert Gifford to challenge him he called motorcycles: "Hopelessly
dangerous." Gifford, director of the Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety said he could prove
that improving skills makes people more
dangerous. His example? "Cars with ABS are involved in as many accidents as cars that aren't." When MCN suggested ABS isn't so much a skill as a mechanical operation he put the phone
down on us.
In the very early morning hours of March 11, 1989 Balcones Heights (Texas) Police Officer Richard Scott Rogiers was shot twice in the head after making a "routine" traffic stop and died nearly 24 hours later on March 12. The man Officer Rogiers pulled over for speeding that fateful morning was Robert Sanchez. Sanchez was convicted of capital murder and is currently serving life in prison (TDCJ #00531913, SID #02701316).
During the trial, Bexar County Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Vincent DiMaio pointed out that the first shot was a stunning, but non-fatal blow to the side of the head, which would have caused Officer Rogiers to fall to his knees. At that point, Sanchez could have chosen to flee, leaving Officer Rogiers injured but alive. Instead, while Officer Rogiers was on his hands and knees, Sanchez chose to deliberately fire the second, fatal shot at point-blank range, execution style, to the back of the head.
Officer Rogiers, better known at "Scottie", was 2 weeks shy of his 30th birthday when he was murdered. He left behind a wife of nearly 6 years and a 2 ½ year old son, along with numerous relatives and friends. He had served on the Balcones Heights Police Department for 6 years. Scottie was a loving and caring man who was very dedicated to his family and profession. He was passionately committed to the service of protecting and defending the citizens of Balcones Heights in San Antonio, Texas. He was not a man who deserved to have his life cut short, especially in such a brutal manner.
Robert Sanchez has currently served only 14 1/2 years of his life sentence for the brutal, cold-blooded murder of Officer Rogiers. Sanchez is eligible for parole on March 9, 2004 and was placed into the parole review process on September 9, 2003.
Robert Sanchez is a man capable of cold bloodedly murdering a police officer. He is a man who completely lacks regard for humanity and a man not worthy of rejoining society. He is NOT a man who should serve the minimum sentence for his horrible crime, but rather a man who should die in prison.
As of Fall 2003 semester, Professor Binta Colley, a fine and outstanding professor of philosophy, education and other related courses faces the possibility of losing her job.
In our education system today, we cannot afford to lose professors with exceptional teaching skills because they are devoted to helping their students gain great knowledge and love for the subject they are embarking.
Professor Binta Colley is one of the most outstanding student-oriented teacher York College or America has today and unfortunately, she was informed that she could be out of a job base on how she teaches and grades the students.
I had the opportunity of taking one of her philosophy classes, and it is unlike any other class that I have taken before. Not only does she use the Socratic method of teaching, but she promotes critical thinking in all areas and also provokes exceptional learning and application out of all her students. No student is left behind. If for any reason a student is experiencing difficulties in any area, Professor Colley is available by phone, office hours, virtual classroom, and email to assist each student in all areas. If by chance she is unable to help you, then professor Colley directs you to the appropriate place.
Great teachers in all areas and levels of teaching should be cherished, appreciated and awarded. If any thing should be done to her, an award should be handed to her. LET US PROTECT OUR HARD WORKING PROFESSORS. KEEP PROFESSOR BINTA COLLEY ON BOARD ACTIVELY!!!
This petition is to help prevent the parole of a convicted killer in Maryland.
On March 23, 1978, Karen Fried and another boy drove a 13-year-old to a parking lot, where the boy stabbed her 22 times, and slit her throat so violently she was almost dismembered. Karen lured the young teen to this park with the killer in the trunk of her car, stood by while he killed her, then drove back home, then lied to the police about what happened. Maryland Gov. Robert Erlich has decided to commute Karen's life sentence which makes her eligible for parole. We do not want her on the streets! Life means life! We, the undersigned STRONGLY OPPOSE the parole of Karen Fried.
This petition urges President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe to resign with immediate effect.
The completed T-Rex and Light-rail project including a new light rail hub on Louisiana and south Washington street will have immediate impact on auto and pedestrian traffic directly impacting the saftey and quality of life of the residents of the 1300 blk od south Washing street. A perposial has beeb put forth by Robert Dorroh from CDOT to construct a traffic diversion island in the South intersection of S. Washington Street and Louisian to discourage neighboorhood access via South Washington Street. If this diversion were constructed, the only way to access the 1300 blk of S. Washington immediatly South of Louisiana would be from Arkansan on the South or a right turn from eastbound Louisiana. Traffic exiting Washington onto Louisiana would only be able to turn right and proceed eastbound.
We would like to bring to your attention the case of : ROBERT O. COULSON. WE BELIEVE ROBERT IS INNOCENT!!! The case against Robert is of 100% circumstantial, the WEAKEST kind of case there is. There is NO direvt evidence linking Robert to the murders. There is :
- NO DNA or forensic evidence linking Robert to the murders;
- NO fingerprints or eyewitness placing Robert at the scene of the crime;
- NO written or tape recorded confessions from Robert;
- NO cuts, scratches or marks of any kind on Robert the day after the murders.
We are profoundly troubled by the floolowing facts in this case:
- the courts have NOT granted Robert a new trial even though prosectors have ADMITTED presenting false evideence in his trial;
- new evidence which strongly attacks and discredits a large part of the case against Robert was NOT admissable in his appeal;
- additional new evidence was NOT admissable in his appeal;
- additional new evidence was NOT found in time to be used in Robert's appeal;
- the star witness against Robert :
* had the mental age of 13 (at age 23) when he lied and pointed the finger atRobert:
* gave four different stories after police accused him of committing the murders;
* failed a lie detector test on the story that sent Robert to Death Row
*is a habitual liar and has NO credibility in this case against Robert;
-Robert has NEVER been charged with a crime prior to his WRONGFUL arrest in this case.
Along with our genuine sympathy for the family and friend of the victims, we, the undersigned, are also extremely concerned that as Robert grieves the horrible loss of his family a terrible injustice has been done to him. We believe Robert is an innocent man who has been wrongly convicted. In the interest of truth and jsutice we urge the State of Texas to:
GRANT ROBERT O. COULSON A FULL AND UNCONDITONAL PARDON
On June 12, 2001, Marcella Gawron, the owner of the property located as C&S Body Shop at 842 Adams Ct., Throop, PA 18512 was notified by the Borough of Throop that a complaint had been registered concerning the condition of the above listed property. An inspection at that location revealed a substantial number of junk (*Section 2C of Ordinance #9 of 1992 defines junk as any discarded material or article including scrap metal, scrapped, abandoned or junked motor vehicles, etc.), abandoned (*Section 2D of Ordinance #9 of 1992 defines abandoned as any item resting for 96 hours or more and which is inoperable, without current registration plates, certificate or inspection or in such a condition as to be unusable)and discarded (*Section 2E of Ordinance #9 of 1992 defines discarded as any item resting for 96 hours or more with no known or apparent owner) vehicles were found on the property.
The property owner was also found in violation of Section 3 of Ordinance #9 of 1992 for accumulating or storing junked, abandoned or discarded vehicles, debris, etc. At the present, the property has remained unchanged. Currently, there are junked cars sinking into the ground that are being used to store more junked parts. In addition, the roof of the garages dislodges during wind, used tires are accumulating and scrap metal is abundant. We are demanding that the Borough of Throop take action to improve our neighborhood. This is a residential area - not commercial nor the place for a junk yard.
This eyesore and hazard to the community needs to be cleaned up!!
