Join us in standing up for reproductive health and education. Planned Parenthood, the organization that delivers reproductive health care, sex education and information to millions of people worldwide, has come under fire in the U.S. lately, with many politicians on both state and federal level seeking to end funding (and in a few cases succeeding).

During the month of May, you can send a specially designed Planned Parenthood vgift to your friends to help support this cause. (And if you need someone to send it to, frank is always happy to receive gifts!) There are three variations ($1, $5 and $10) for you to choose from, but they'd all look good on your profile when your friends know that you stand by something so important.

                    

Thank you all for your help in our support for Planned Parenthood. This promotion ends June 1, 2012; LiveJournal is not affiliated with Parent Parenthood. For more information about Planned Parenthood, please visit: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

All U.S. Internet Providers will be policing downloads by July 12, 2012 [Mar. 20th, 2012|03:08 pm]

Please repost this? I have never begged for one of my posts to be boosted. I am just so worried for my friends and want you to know.

According to this article, dated March 15, 2012:
http://www.digitaltrends.com/webnews/major-isps-turn-into-copyright-police-by-july-says-riaa/

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

Fox news confirms this:

Edit: I'm also going to add that PeerBlock might be another program to look into. You can download it here.

And...

Petition: RIAA and the Obama Administration: Stop ISPs from launching a massive copyright spying scheme this July 12th

Internet blackout day: See you all on Thursday [Jan. 18th, 2012|07:51 pm]

Google: End Piracy, Not Liberty

Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S.

Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs already oppose SOPA and PIPA.

The Senate will begin voting on January 24th. Please let them know how you feel. Sign this petition urging Congress to vote NO on PIPA and SOPA before it is too late.



Tell Congress: Don't censor the Web

Fighting online piracy is important. The most effective way to shut down pirate websites is through targeted legislation that cuts off their funding. There's no need to make American social networks, blogs and search engines censor the Internet or undermine the existing laws that have enabled the Web to thrive, creating millions of U.S. jobs.

Too much is at stake — please vote NO on PIPA and SOPA.

Nice of LJ to completely change the comment layouts just when I get a paid account [Dec. 22nd, 2011|09:57 pm]

This new system sucks. If it doesn't get any less shitty, I don't think I'll be getting more paid time after my two month trial period is over. I don't mind the subject lines so much but everything else sucks balls. It all looks like Facebook's ugly cousin. I hate Facebook. Maybe I'll write a rant about it someday.

Classes: my last final is tomorrow morning at eight in the morning. Rutgers is practically fucking deserted. It's awful. I feel like the little kid who got left behind when all the other kids left for a better town or something. At least my biochem is done.

Work: I have an interview for a possible promotion tomorrow. If I get this, I might not have to deal with annoying as fuck teens anymore.  I should be preparing for the interview, but I'm afraid I might psych myself out. I just hope I'll be comfortable with whoever they choose to evaluate my teaching style. I'm pretty sure it'll be more than one person.


Cut for ASOIF babbleCollapse )

I should probably go look over my notes for my last exam

Since I got a paid account, I might as well put some content on this thing [Dec. 19th, 2011|06:39 pm]

There was a Barnes and Noble closing nearby my house so I bit the bullet and got the whole Song of Ice and Fire series on paperback. Except for the last book, that one I could only get on hardback. I read through the first book this weekend and I enjoyed it, for the most part. I read through 809 pages, which is an accomplishment for any writer that keeps my interest for that long. My secret is that I start reading hundreds of books a year. I rarely finish them because I just put them away the moment I'm bored for more than ten pages.  

Things I liked: 

The pacing: A Game of Thrones was mostly set up for a huge epic plot, I get that. Most of the time, I get bored by hugely long set ups, but Martin constantly switching POV actually made the story feel like it was moving much faster than it was.

The plot: it was complicated, but not so much that I felt like a moron because I didn't understand what was going on.

The characters: there were a lot of them and not all of them worked for me, but the ones who did really feel like real people. I'm not good with people's names, especially when they're faux-medieval and fantasy names, but I remember most of the names in this book. Also, I can name more than two women who were meaningful to the plot and not just because they were the heroes/villains's mother/sister/girlfriend. In popular fantasy written by dudes, that's almost unheard of. 

Anyway, I'm going to write about the ones I remember just so I can come back after I'm done with the series and see how many of my theories were bullshit.

Cut for lengthCollapse ) 

Shit, there are more but I have to study.

. . . In the off chance someone reads this and decides to comment, please don't tell me what happens in the other books. I realize that this series has been out forever, but I just started reading it. 

Back from studyingCollapse )
I'll probably think of more stuff later

I can't believe this is happening [Aug. 24th, 2010|10:58 pm]
Right now, as I type this, my parents are discussing in the next room the possibility of me marrying the son of one of their old friends so he can get papers to stay in the US.

A guy I don't remember meeting whose name I don't know. 

They're offering me 10k. The guy and his family.

I don't know how I'm going to say no to this.
