This petition is for all the People who have said Our Politicians should be paid the minimum wage.
We the people of the community request a traffic light be installed at the intersection of Hwy 29 and 9 1/2 mile road located in North Pensacola. A traffic light is desperatley needed at the intersection of Hwy 29 and 9 1/2 mile rd. There have been numerous accidents with three of them causing fatalities in the past 4 months.
Members of Northside Apostolic rd located at the intersection fear for their life or that an accident may occur each night they head to church. Parents fear an accident may occur when arriving at this intersection on the way to taking their children to and from Pine Meadow Elementary School which is located close to the intersection as well.
Please help us as concerned people of the community to get a traffic light at this intersection before another fatality occurs.
We were promised properly resourced quality nursing/midwifery services
- Public Sector nurses and midwives across metropolitan South Australia are taking action because the State Government has failed to deliver on its promise to support positive and resourced quality nursing and midwifery services.
It’s about time that these resources are delivered
- A promise was made, in February 2007, to provide more nursing and midwifery staff for direct clinical care so that other nursing and midwifery staff (including Level 2 and 3) could spend time performing activities that have an important impact on patients.
- Since this time, we have repeatedly requested that the resources be provided.
- To date, we have not been provided with a response or timeframe.
It’s the time we need to provide quality patient careThe failure to resource quality nursing/midwifery services has a negative impact on patient care. Failure to meet the promise means that less time is available for important work including:
- Quality improvement
- Infection control
- Rostering (ensuring adequate and appropriate staff on shift)
- Clinical teaching supervision / support of new staff
- Professional / knowledge development and resources
- Co-ordination management and planning.
We have exhausted all other options to make the State Government deliver
- Because we have not received a response, we are taking action so that the State Government will provide us with the resources we need to provide quality nursing/midwifery services.
- We regret that we have been forced to take action, but we are taking action because of our commitment to the community and your health needs.
- We ask for your patience and support in our campaign – this is a campaign to ensure the community gets quality nursing/midwifery services and that’s why ‘It’s About Time’.
Mr. Kibaki must step down and give way for Mr. Raila A. Odinga - the people's president because Kibaki is in the office illegally and has imposed himself on Kenyans.
Even though Kenya has struggled to gain democratic space, the behavior of Mr. Kibaki takes Kenya years back into colonial era.
The evidence does not need more corroboration since:
The just ended Kenyan election ECK Boss admits, Yes, vote tallying had problems, admits Kivuitu. And when he demanded all constituency tallies, he found some figures were not the ones he had personally seen, he said. As of Tuesday, he added, the commission had not received the official Form 16 from four constituencies. The forms give the actual figures from constituencies signed by the returning officer.
It is those forms that had raised a furor when ODM leaders disputed the results, arguing that 49 constituencies had not submitted them and that the ECK was merely using a computer generated form that could be done anywhere. He said the officer had shown him forms of two constituencies — Juja and Kieni — whose results had been tampered with and the returning officer had not counter-signed, as is the normal practice. A shocked Mr Kivuitu said: “What surprised me was the files I saw yesterday (Tuesday) were very clean and the two files I saw (previously) were very dirty because of the cancellation.” He had informed his commissioners that he was dissatisfied.
Three issues to note:
1. No Going to Kenyan Courts: The matter cannot be resolved in the Kenyan courts because at the hall where the rigging and manipulation was taking place was the Justice Ministers Martha Karua and Internal Security Minister John Michuki. They were privy to what was taking place and maybe part of the rigging. So they cannot be trusted.
2. No Fare Judgment: Chief Justice took part in swearing the rigged in president at night knowingly the vote was rigged. Thus he is also part of the election problem facing Kenyans now and since judiciary is under his docket, there may not be a fair hearing.
3. Need for interim Government: As indicated by the Kenyan Attorney General Amos Wako that an independent investigation into vote results that led to President Mwai Kibaki's disputed re-election. This may not be possible since all the documents to be relied upon during the exercise have been severely tampered with by the government agents, stolen from KICC by the government that’s determined to erase all the evidence to cover her tracks in the melee and or lacks credibility.
This only gives way for an independent arbiter that can be impartial in the fact-finding mission while an interim government is in place while waiting for fresh elections. This must be within a short time say, three months at most.
All Kenyans know is that Kibaki did not win the elections but has robbed Kenyans.
Please sign this petition to bring back Inuyasha. They cut the season short on October 26, 2006, leaving us all in suspense, waiting for another new episode. Although they made movies, many Inuyasha lovers were disappointed by the ending of the series.
There may be hope though, all you have to do is sign this petition and it will be sent to the creators of the series. If you haven't heard of Inuyasha, I suggest going to Google and looking up Inuyasha episodes or pictures.
You may also watch episodes on Myspace.com. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Here is the first movie!!
Trenton Sorell had gotten into some trouble this summer. No one was hurt by his actions. He is a juvenile and he made a stupid mistake. Trenton is paying for his mistake by community service and probation.
The School Board has voted not to let him participate in football this upcoming season. Our problem is that policy has not been followed the past four years when situations like this occur. We feel that Trenton is being made an example of in this matter.
Football is his life and he keeps his grades up to play. By taking away football, they are taking away his education. Should there be a one strike and your out law for this school, or should these juveniles get a second chance and learn from their mistakes?
I have recently found out that by September 2007 that smoking will no longer be allowed on the Palo Alto College Campus in San Antonio, Texas.
I find it to be unfair to those of us who smoke because college is about having freedom and as it is we hardly have freedom in America anymore. There is so many students and professors that smoke on campus after their classes, which because of this new rule, it is going to cause many conflicts.
I've already heard of people leaving the school and quitting there because of this policy. As being adults, we have the right to smoke cigarettes on campus as we do any where else. How is an individual ever suppose to figure themselves out if everything keeps getting taken away from us and we're not able to express who we are? This isn't right and what kind of freedom is this?

Sri Nara Chandrababu Naidu.
Ex Chief Minister of State & Leader of Opposition Party.
Chilkur Balaji Temple situated in Osmansagar (Chilkur village), Hyd is the only Temple in the World that boasts of not having a 'Hundi' and does not discriminate among any devotees based on their social status.
Devotees are NOT EXPECTED to make any MONETARY OFFERINGS neither are they accepted. The temple run by the Head Priest, Sri Soundara Rajan is being maintained well & the Lord is answering devotees prayers in bountiful.
The taking over of the Temple by the Endowments Department WILL introduce the 'Hundi' system and other special darshans for the VIP's. The common man who has been able to have darshan of the Lord JUST LIKE ANY OTHER VIP will be DENIED this privilege. Devotees will have to BUY tickets to have darshan of the Lord and more than anything else, it will lead to the COMMERCIALISATION of the Temple.
As you are aware that there is currently an ongoing agitation regarding the taking over of the temple by the Endowments Department; As the Ex Chief Minister of the State and a strong Leader of the Opposition Party, I expect COMPLETE SUPPORT from YOU towards the Temple Protection Movement.
We HOPE you will HELP US in seeing Chilkur Balaji Temple being taken care of by the same Archaka family, run on the SAME PRINCIPLES.
This is POSSIBLE ONLY WHEN NOT engulfed by the Endowments.
Thanks for your support.

Sign this petition to pressure President Bush and the U.S. Congress to take action and help end the war in northern Uganda that has already led to the abduction of more than 25,000 children.
Tell President Bush, Senators and Congress Members You Want the United States to Take the Lead in Ending the Worst Abuse of Children in the World.
Tell Them to Step Up and Lead Efforts to End the War in Northern Uganda.
For 19 years, a war has flared in northern Uganda between a rebel group called the Lord's Resistance Army, led by Joseph Kony, and President Yoweri Museveni's government. The war's main targets are not the combatants. The targets are children.
Over the course of the fighting, an estimated 25,000 boys and girls have been abducted and forced into being soldiers and sex slaves. Thousands of children and their families have been killed; hundreds of thousands live in squalid, unsafe camps.
President Bush has directed some dollars and programs to assist the people of northern Uganda. But he could be a decisive leader in promoting an end to this conflict in 2005 if he made it an American moral priority.
This could be ended if the United States - one of Uganda's top foreign aid donors - gave sustained political and diplomatic attention to it. The White House and Capitol Hill lawmakers should take these actions:
-- President Bush should allocate finances and appoint a high-profile envoy to support Ugandan attempts to hold peace talks. Bush should invest a small amount of his time by personally talking to Museveni and letting him know the United States has made a moral priority of protecting children in northern Uganda by ending the war there. He also should call Sudanese leaders in the capital of Khartoum and in the south to get a pledge from them to fully end support to Joseph Kony and his LRA.
-- The Senate and the House of Representatives should prepare a plan for tying further U.S. military aid to human rights monitoring and Government of Uganda's commitment to peace talks; the latter demonstrated by the convening of negotiations attended by top officials from both sides of the conflict.
With these actions as a start, President Bush and members of the House and Senate could demonstrate that the United States seeks to help children in need wherever they are. Please sign the attached petition and urge our elected officials to act immediately.
Add my voice to Americans of all political and personal backgrounds who want you to make resolving the war in northern Uganda a priority, and begin by taking the above actions.
I entered the poetry.com contest and i supposedly won. The only thing is they want you to buy stuff. It's wrong because if we porduced it don't you think they should be paying us a little bit of the money that they make every time they sell a book with our poem in it or just our poem period?
this petition is simply to stop big corporations from taking from the poor. They think they can get away with everything just because they're rich.I mean we provide the product and they want us to buy our own product, it's absurd and ridiculouss.
Those people get our hopes up then crush them and they don't care. I think it's about time we opened our eyes and made them pay what they should have a long time ago.
By stopping scams like this you help the poor.
JULY 14, 2005: THIS PETITION IS A DIRECT REQUEST TO GOVERNMENT FOR PROCESS REVIEW CONCERNING NEEDED REFORMS IN THE AREAS OF SOCIAL SECURIETY AND MARITAL DIVISION OF ASSETS.
PRESENT SIGNATURE COUNT AT OLD SITE WAS 219 BUT THAT SITE IS CURRENTLY BEING SOLD. THIS HAS MADE URGENT RELOCATION A MUST.
SAMPLE COMMENTS APPEAR HERE:
219 Curt I get disability and it took over a year to get then medicaid wouldnt cover the hospital bills more than 90 days back leaving me screwed drowning in medical bills.
218 Adrienne Smith It is hard enough to get disability and has taken me two yrs to get before a judge. Now you want to change everything that people on disabiity need. We are still people. Most of us have worked very hard in our lives, and no one asked to get sick or disabled in anyway. Some day I would hope to re-marry, however, it seems that you are forcing people to live together instead of the instiution of marriage which is sacred. We can not lose money because we want to marry and live some kind of life. Please do no go through with any kind of "taking away from the disabled people of the United States". Our goverment seems more concerned with giving money to people in other countries than taking care of the born and raised US citizians.
217 Wendy Gantos I am a disabled attorney and cannot practice due to my disability. I had to wait 2 years for my employer to give me long term disability. During that time, I tried to get food stamps, and the process was so ridiculously long and hard, I never got them! Now if an attorney can't figure out the system, how can the rest of the country figure it out. I live now on disability and my bills are way more than my income every month. I can't even afford to pay my student loans. Great country, huh?
216 Ron Bones My wife is on ssi&ssd,I'm a disabled Vet with only 30% and we barely get through the month. food stamps only go so far when what you get isn't even half of what a single friend gets because she lives in a different part of the State. Tehy need to get the system worked out so that everything is equal. But I doubt we'llsee it soon. You know the old saying: SURE YOU CAN TRUST OUR GOVERMENT...JUST ASK ANY NATIVE AMERICAN!
215 Liz DeWitt Please, do not abolish social security. We need it.
214 Katherine M. Aaron Please support the disabled in this country. They already have to jump through hoops just to be approved and it certainly causes financial hardship on a family that are unecessary.
213 Joyce A Spencer People who marry they have disabilities. They end up losing some money. How in this country can they live could.When they pay more out of there checks every month.People should not have money taken away from them.Just because they marry.
212 rita stafford-bones Execellent point
211 Sophie D.
210 Teddy G. Bryant How far will this govt. go to be out of control and to take away benefits taxpayers have paid the govt., and to which they have the right?
209 Kathy Rogers I'm the mother of a disabled young adult. Our people in the US should taken care of before others. Forcing people to live alone or divorce a spouse to receive benefits is inhumane.
208 John Davis Remember Tim Cratchett? (Dickens-A Christmas Carol) You don't really want to see a nation of them do you? Give us the tools to maintain our dignity and ability to still be productive citizens!
207 Jacqueline McVicar What happened to taking care of our own? Shouldn't citizens of the United States receive aide before any other country?
206 Mike Pearson We can afford WAR , but we can't afford those with diabilities. and we say we are a Christian Nation???
205 Joanne D. Ferguson This is so important!
204 Dixie Boyd I am on disability. I cannot get glasses. I cannot get dental. I don't have transportation. If I marry I will loose my own benefits... WHAT KIND OF COUNTRY IS THIS?
203 Mary Runyon The disabled in this country deserve so much better and humane treatment.
202 Adriana Lortia
201 LINDA THE GOV SUX !!! GOOD LUCK KENDALL
200 Paul Manning
199 Priscilla Peters It seems to me That the Government makes it almost impossible for people to be Married...Please Help Us
198 Debi Koscielski My goverment supports & pushes its religious beliefs on me by promoting marrage & its religious right, yet punishes me by taking my disability when I comply. YOU CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS!
CHANGE THE LAW BEFORE i DIVORCE MY HUSBAND & YOU FORCE ME TO SIN EVEN MORE BY LIVING WITH HIM!
197 Barry Berger
196 Diane Grugan-Duvall I am the mother of a child with a disability.
195 Laurie Furlong I am the parent of a young adult with disabilities and I volunteer working with disabled. I support reform of the marriage penalty to SSI recipients.
WOULD GREATLY APRECIATE FURTHER SUPPORT FOR THIS CAUSE ON BEHALF OF AMERICA'S DISABLED.
The administration of Palmer High School decided to change the current bell schedule at Palmer. The new schedule would include two days of extended periods and a teacher collaboration period once a week.
Question: What is wrong with the present schedule?
Answer: The present schedule doesn't allow time for teachers to collaborate or to work individually with struggling students.
False. The present schedule gives most teachers two free periods plus a lunch period in which they can work with other teachers and struggling students.
Problems with Current Schedule:
No time for teachers to collaborate
No time for teachers to work with struggling students
o False, all teachers have free periods in which they can work with other teachers or with students.
Problems with the Proposed Schedule:
No time allotted for Terror TV or announcements,
On a block day, it is possible for a student to began,
class at 7:40 and not eat for five hours.
Field Trips are discouraged
Students taking classes at other schools or at a local
college will have trouble creating a schedule
Students who are taking 8 classes per day will lose a
class, because only 7 periods are offered.
o Particularly detrimental to IB students who wish to participate in elective or extra classes.
Proposed alternate changes to Schedule:
Retain present schedule.
Create department wide lunches/planning periods, so that all members of any given department share a free period in which they can collaborate.
As a resident in Southern California, sandles have been a part of every day life since I was a young child and now they are trying to take that away. Sandles are a convenient way for comfortablity and style. They allow our feet to "breathe" and in several other ways keep us comfortable. But, now because of our schools new renovations, our administration feels the need to take away that comfortability for safety.
Safety is a big issue in society today and from our prinicipals point of view, she wants to make her students as safe as they can be, this is understandable. However, if she wants us to be safe, cut down the fighting or lock our campus up, but do not take away the students personal expression and comfortability. It is understood that with the construction taking place on our campus, sandles may be a safety hazard. But, we are not walking around over open trenches or boxes of nails, all the dangerous places are blocked off by fences or caution tape. Another problem the principal sees with sandles are the opened toes, causing toes to be stepped on or stubbed. But, people see these problems before they leave the house wearing sandles, they know of the risks they are taking.
Football players are constantly breaking bones, spraining ankles, or physically injuring theirselves in other ways but, do we see the principal taking away their ability to tackle and play the sport they love? No, we do not, so why should the students of Kennedy High school have to stop wearing the shoes they feel comfortable in, due to a few minor injuries? We allow athletes to play the sports they play with the knowledge that they may be hurt, but we do not allow students to wear sandles because of a safety issue, it is very hypocritical.
The fact of the matter is that we as people are going to get hurt no matter what way or where, it is going to happen, its just a factor of life. But, do we see kids walking around with helmets and safety pads everywhere they go? No, because we cannot constantly be afraid of being injured or unsafe, we have to live life and roll with the punches.
A former school friend of mine who was having a very bad time in his life decided to do a very stupid thing: he went into a bank to rob the counter but when things went wrong he took an employee hostage at gunpoint. Nevertheless he was overrun by the police (SWAT) and received 45 years in prison although nobody was physically hurt.
I think that's a very, very, very harsh sentence !!
We the people of zimmerman lane would like the barking and roaming dogs taking care of. This has gone on for 2 years. The neighbors would like this problem resolved.
Domestic Violence is taking the Freedom from Women, Children, Men, and Entire Families, Mother's, Father", Siblings etc.
I propose that we pass a Law instituting a Criminal Backround check on both the Male and the Female to find out if they have ever been convicted of a Domestic Violence or Child Molestation.
If either party has, they must tell the other before they get Married.
It is very costly to Rehabilitate a Family once the Violence is Reported to the Authorites.
The Couple to be Married would pay the cost.
Those Monies should and could help with Education, Job Training, the Deficit, and many other things needless to say it could be Saving Lives.
I am a Survivor, and if you have never ever been a Victim, never become one, and If you have ever had to struggle to be a Survior, help me to win this fight.
May the Angels watch over You.
To: The students of Wilclay P.S. and all the other children in the world.
From: A group of students from Wilclay P.S.
Purpose: We are submitting a petition because we want to raise the awareness of Child Labour. Child Labour is all over the world. The unfortunate children has to work hard day and night for pays under a dollar. They are usually sold by their parents because of debts. They don't even have a chance to see their family.
Request: My request is that all the children in schools to start taking action and do more researchs. We can start fundraisers to raise money to donate to save more children from Child Labour. Spread the news about Child Labour and how you can help. Thank you.
For years, we've had Nickelodeon around for kids to enjoy before, and after school, and all day. Shows like Rugrats, Hey arnold, Invader Zim, and the best of all Spongebob Squarepants. They're talking about cancling those shows, and putting better shows on, and there are no better shows. They've already ruined Nick Jr. and Nickelodeon by taking off some really good shows.
They shouldn't ruin it more, and if they cancel Spongebob, then they will probably stop selling spongebob stuff in stores. So Please Sign, it means the world to me and my friends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This petition is to help cure the mental anguish that has effected the multitude of Half Life: Day of Defeat players. Davy Crocket has ruined the playing experience for hundreds of potentialally great players in the DoD community. Davy Crocket has hacked, and cheated his way to the top without thinking of the torment he would later put the community through. Help stop the madness by taking away Davy Crocket's internet access and computer access until the age of 80.

To get children back in my care and I'm well capable of taking care of my children.
We have been wearing clothes for a long time and ever since the first clothing was made there have been people advertizing on it. Why should we the people advertize for these companies. They should either pay us or go without. It's unfair to think that we should pay for our clothes and then also advertize for them. How many of you right now look down and see Nike, Levi, or some other high power company's logo on your clothing, a lot of you right. Now, how many of you can say your gettting a check in the mail for the advertizing, not that many of you right. So, I say end this unfair, rip off of a deal, and say pay us or we're taking it off!
Instead of taking step to develop our country I want the government to take
the first step of creating corruption free Government Offices. Our Country has all strength to develop on its own, only the government authorities are not allowing development.
I also understand Government is formed by people, but I feel it is easier to take action on government employees who take bribes than taking action on 100 crore population.
Huntingdon Life Sciences is Europe's largest vivisection lab. They have labs Situated in Huntingdon (UK),Occold (UK) and in NJ (USA).70,000 animals including dogs,cats,rabbits,monkeys and guinea pigs are imprisoned in poor conditions. All animals will die after suffering horrifically.Drugs and chemicals are pumped into the animals to see the effects but these effects are not the same as with humans.
These experiments are pointless and cruel. HLS has been exposed 4 times with cruelty to animals including beating and shaking puppies. 500 animals die every day. Help stop this cruel prison.
When the story came on the news, I was appalled: 1 person might keep God out of the pledge of allegiance because he doesn't happen to believe in Him? In fact, Constitutionally, they shouldn't be allowed to abolish it. According to the first Amendment, "Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech..." Of course, that didn't stop them from taking prayer out of schools.
Many people today believe in God and if they can't say that this country is under God when they truly believe it, they have taken away their rightof expressing religion. Our nation was founded by people who wanted to worship freely, without the government hanging over their heads. Let everyone know that there is no such thing as separation of church and state and stop this before we can no longer worship God at all!
There are rumors about AOL's famous Instant messaging being taken away and made a pay for use service. Yes this is true they are taking AIM away unless we can try to change that. They are taking AIM away and charging by the hour. At this time the price is undecided. If we can get 1000 signatures we can save AIM.
Many people I know have had abortions. I am no preacher, but I think abortions are evil. You are taking a life away, no matter what people say... and I think this is worse than murdering a person out of the mother, because you are murdering a child, without even giving it a chance to expierience life. I really do hope you support me when I say abortion is murder.
Space Knight Tekkaman Blade is actually a 90's version of a sci-fi television series called Tekkaman: The Space Knight that was broadcasted in Japan during the early 1970's. An English adaptation of the new series was then brought overseas - making it the first mechanical (or "mecha") related anime to appear on North American television since the run of Robotech.
Entitled Teknoman, the series began it's run on the UPN and FOX networks across North America. Taking place in the year 2087, Teknoman recounts the story of Slade - Earth's only hope of salvation - and his continuous struggle for the existence of mankind... simultaneously fighting an inner struggle to preserve his own humanity without succumbing to the dark side of his power.
Like the majority of anime dubs, Teknoman has undergone several changes from the original series Space Knight Tekkaman Blade (thankfully, nothing which greatly hinders the enjoyment of the show). Scenes had been cut, character names were changed (even genders in some cases), more narration had been added, and new opening and closing themes were composed. Sadly, Teknoman did not last very long as both UPN and FOX cancelled the run of the series -- just as the story was becoming VERY interesting if I may add.
The OVA sequel, Tekkaman Blade II, was released in 1994 (Japan). Taking place 10 years after the invasion, we're introduced to a new Space Knights team, some of whom had been captured by the Radam and converted, into Tekkamen. The series is VERY short - having only 6 parts - and was commercially picked up by Urban Vision.
This petition is designed to resurrect Tekkaman from the ashes that it has dissipated into, by requesting and showing the overwhelming support for the series return throughout the world.
Special thanks to Blue Earth (http://www.geocities.com/bluearths/) for the four paragraphs of information.
Other Tekkaman Petitions;
Recent studies suggest that supplementing melatonin may bolster our immune systems, keep our cells from disintegrating, slow the growth of tumors and cataracts, and ward off heart disease, all the while helping us sleep better. (Newsweek, August 1995)
"Studies suggest that low-dose supplements of melatonin can hasten sleep and ease jet lag, without the hazards or side effects of prescription sleeping pills." Melatonin may have many other uses and has been reported to make people feel better, strengthen the immune system, and reduce free radicals in the body. Current research is underway to determine melatonin's effect as an anti-oxidant, immno-modulator in cancer, delayed sleep-phase disorders, and jet lag. Tests are still under way so there is much to still be learned about melatonin and its effects on the human body." (Newsweek, November 6, 1995, p. 60-63).
Melatonin secretion is involved in physiologic sleep onset, and melatonin may be useful in treating insomnia. (Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics, May 1995, Harvard, Cambridge, & MIT) Low melatonin levels correlate with low sleep quality. Seven days treatment with melatonin at a level of 2 mg. daily can improve sleep patterns in elderly patients with insomnia. (Dr. Haimov, British Medical Journal, 1994) Young adult subjects assess their sleep as "deeper" after melatonin treatment. (Dr. Nave, European Journal of Pharmacology, 1995)
We produce melatonin abundantly until puberty, and then it declines steadily into old age. (Dr. Russell Reiter, University of Texas) Melatonin is produced in the pineal gland, which is a small gland in the center of the brain. As darkness fall, the pineal gland produces a surge of melatonin that goes to all parts of the body. When light hits the retina of the eye, neural impulses signal the pineal gland to slow melatonin production.
Melatonin has been found to inhibit LDL [low density lipids or "bad cholesterol"] and the synthesis of cholesterol. (Dr. Muller, Biochemical and Biophysical Research, 1994)
Melatonin selectively and efficiently detoxifies highly reactive oxidants [free radicals] by donating an electron to electrophilic compounds. (Dr. Poeggeler, Annals of New York Academy of Sciences, 1995) This may explain why breast cancer and prostate cancer patients taking melatonin had greater survival rates. (Dr. Massion, University of Massachusetts, Medical Hypotheses, 1995) Mice treated with melatonin showed a 50 percent reduction in tumor weight when compared to control mice. (Dr. Berkowitz, Journal of Urology, 1988)
Melatonin helps alleviate the symptoms associated with "Winter Depression". (Dr. Tukholmankatu, Medical Hypothesis, 1994)
Blood pressure normalization is enhanced with melatonin, and it also modulates the release of heart killing stress hormones.
According to many, one of the more effective means of taking a supplement such as melatonin is the sublingual (under the tongue) method. A high quality sublingual melatonin supplement will usually contain 2.5 mg. of melatonin (often in a base of sorbitol and a natural flavor such as peppermint). One tablet can be dissolved under the tongue before retiring. Since this tablet can be dissolved under the tongue, it is excellent for children with sleep disorders and hyperactivity.
At this very moment across the globe, people are protesting against corporations prioritizing profits over people's welfare. They argue that corporations should serve people, and not the world economy. They also argue that we are living in a world system which has been re-fashioned by the New Right over the last twenty years. These imbeciles obviously didn't do history in their Uni. studies... the "world system" has always mirrored that of the animal kingdom: SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST.
Even as far back as the Ancient Roman & Greek era, society learnt that the weak get weaker, and the strong get stronger. The stronger the army, the easier the victory. The stronger the leaders, the stronger the empire. It was often the case that the weak needed to work REALLY hard, become strong, and then succeed. Today's society is EXACTLY the same... there is the easy option of "BLAME", or there is the alternative: "EFFORT". The difference is that the "Blamers" are the weak link in today's society, being the burden for those who put in the "Effort". It is not a matter of principle. It is not a matter of money. It is a matter of justifying their weak stance in society.
If [a majority of them] leave their sheltered Uni. lives, they will EXPERIENCE what life is all about. And this is what this is all about. For them to condemn an organization like McDonalds, who recruit young people and teach them VALUES at such an age, is preposterous! It is a simple case of "Tall Poopy Syndrome"... they cut individuals down who have made the effort to become successful, because they CAN'T BE BOTHERED MAKING AN EFFORT THEMSELVES. These morons expect us to listen to them when they have had NO LIFE EXPERIENCES... operating on theories rather than facts. Taking their advice is like taking medical advice from a car salesman. Don't allow the minority to rule our democracy... a true democracy takes EVERYONE'S issues into account.
Sign this petition to protect our future. Skip signing it if you are one of the BLAMERS...
