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.
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 CIW is a farmworker organization in southern florida that advocates for fair working conditions and an end to human rights abuses in the agricultural industry.

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...

They demanded that Chipotle stand true to its ethical image of serving "Food With Integrity" by in addition to supporting small farms and serving humanely-raised meat, they also sign on to the Fair Food Agreement with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and pay a penny-per-pound premium for their tomatoes to go directly to the farmworkers who harvest them. Chipotle can help put an end to farmworker exploitatio...

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.
