This video tells the story of three dogs, all of which were pulled from the shelter and saved from euthanization. Female inmates at CDCR's California Institution for Women train and transform the animals into service dogs for autistic children under the guidance of the non-profit Pathways To Hope. The program facilitates redemption for the dogs, the inmates and the children who receive a vital companion.
Farmworkers in the fields of Florida put food on our tables, but get poverty wages and sweatshop conditions. Unite with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers to demand Fair Food and end modern-day slave labor in America.

You don't have to go to Chiapas to find the Zapatistas and the forgotten abused indigenous peoples. They are here in America at Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota or in Immakolee Florida at the tomato farms...Human dignity, human rights, the preservation of natural resources not the destruction and abuse is all people need. NAFTA impoverished Mexico, The American Government screwed the Indian people. It's time to make it right or face the same fate, unless your'e sitting on a couple million clams, then good luck. Peace. Bring our Troops Home, NO NUKES!

Geraint Palmer Queueing systems dominate our day-to-day life: for example supermarkets, airports, traffic systems, and call centres, naming only a few obvious examples. A better understanding of these queues can help businesses and service providers optimise these systems, improving efficiency, profit and satisfaction levels. Sometimes some unintuitive behaviour can arise, and so modelling and investigating queues mathematically has become very popular and important. One prominent method of doing so is by using computer simulation. This talk will present Ciw, a new Python library for simulating open queueing networks. This talk will demonstrate using Ciw's simple interface to model and simulate a queueing system, and an overview of it's many features will also be given. The library is c...

The CIW is launching a national petition drive to demand that Burger King and other food industry leaders work with the CIW to improve the wages and working conditions of the workers who pick their tomatoes, and join with the CIW in an industry-wide effort to eliminate modern-day slavery and human rights abuses from Florida's fields. The petitions will serve as notice that those who sign are "prepared to stop patronizing Burger King now, and other food industry leaders in the future, should they fail to do so." The campaign comes on the 200th anniversary of the US ban against the importation of slaves, and echoes key strategies of the early abolitionist movement that helped hasten the end of slavery in the 19th century.

The Food Chain Workers Alliance and the Georgetown Solidarity Committee organized a protest outside Giant Supermarket in Columbia Heights in Washington, D.C. on Monday Nov. 15. Ahold, Giant's parent company, has so far refused to sign a Fair Food agreement with the CIW and therefore continues to play an active role in farmworker exploitation.

Although the flames they are so dim,
I can see them from over here.
But this is no time to worry now,
No time to shed a tear.
The people are all smiling,
And the letters are all too,
The flowers they are all arranged
And the notes they are all blue.
Where are the words to say to you,
Where do they all begin.
I should not have a lot to lose
And everything to win.
And I want you to be smiling,
I want you not to cry.
And even if I hide away,
Then you'll get the notion why.A symphony I learnt at school,
In pigeonholes so clear,
But it made me for to write no songs,
For nobody to hear.
And I see you are all smiling
Even in the candle light.
Just close your eyes and fall asleep,
And I think you'll be alright.
Close your eyes and fall asleep,
And I think you'll be alright.
