In 2008, 5,870 people in the U.S. were killed because of a person using a cell phone while they were driving. Over a million were injured because of the same reason.
People that talk on a cell phone causes nearly 25% of car accidents and people who text while driving are 23% more likely to be in a car accident.
Australia has the LARGEST killing of any land animal. The kangaroo is a NATIVE species, which is a symbol on our national coat of arms.
In 2009 the quota of kangaroos to be shot was just under 4 million. This does NOT include at-foot or in-pouch joeys that are killed by blows to the head by shooters.
Dangerous bend in New Road/Kiln Barn Road, Ditton. This is a narrow bend with HGVs crossing onto the other side of the road to use this bend. This bend is not wide enough to cater for the size of the HGVs using this bend. It is in close proximity of Ditton Junior School where parents and guardians walk their children to school on the pavement around this bend.
These vehicles use 24 hours - 7 days a week. We suffer noise from these HGVs night and day. The summer is worse as certain residents have to leave their garden and go inside.
Performance-enhancing drugs are substances used by athletes to improve their performances in the sports in which they engage.
As they have become more widely used and sophisticated, various organizations have banned their use for doping in sport, developed testing and enforcement procedures to prevent athletes from using these drugs, and penalized athletes caught using these drugs.
Burberry may be best known for its distinctive plaid, but its use of real fur is making the design house synonymous with cruelty to animals.
Burberry continues to use fur in its designs despite the fact that leading clothing retailers like Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Ann Taylor, Polo Ralph Lauren, and others have pulled fur from their stores forever.
Burberry knows about the suffering that goes into every fur-trimmed coat, hat, and bag, yet the company continues to use fur in its designs. With so many fashionable, comfortable alternatives available, there is no excuse for Burberry to continue using dead, tortured animals in its designs.
People are using Puppys As seal Bait.
They hook a Huge 3-pronged fish hook in the dog's snout.
Then they put them in the water! Alive!!!!!! Help Stop It!
War propaganda threatens to corrupt U.S. media. Why waste time, money and our men?
Those men can be anything they want to be and they are using their time to defend our country.
Billions of American dollars have been used to fight this war. The money can be used here in the U.S. for greater things.
So, I fell that if you want to invest money into something effective, make music, not WAR!
The traditional chinese writing has a tracked history of over 3000 years. The simplified chinese writing does not have any logic in its formation, whereas each word of traditional chinese comes under 4 classification. The changeover of chinese character will by all means sentence the death of history.
Animals exploited for human entertainment face appalling treatment, pose threats to public health and safety, are currently not adequately regulated by state and federal laws, and do not conserve endangered species as is so often claimed.
I strongly believe that the standard industry tools and methods used to initially "break" and train animals throughout their lives, including the bullhook, chaining, food and water deprivation, use of whips, clubs and blunt objects, and electric prods, are incredibly inhumane. In addition, subjecting circus animals to travel for up to 11 months of the year for thousands of hours, over long distances, is unspeakably cruel. As you know, these animals may be chained while not performing, transported in vehicles that lack climate control, and forced to stand or lie in their own waste.
Wild animals used in public displays are dangerous — and even deadly. Recent incidents nationwide highlight the need for tighter restrictions on the exhibition of these animals. In addition to the many documented escapes and attacks by captive animals used for exhibition, elephants may carry tuberculosis (TB), and can infect humans with the bacterial disease.
Circuses are entertainment, not education. Watching wild animals perform unnatural tricks only teaches our children that it is acceptable to exploit animals; it does not teach respect for animals, nor does it help animals in the wild. Animal-free circuses and entertainment, such as Cole Brothers Circus and Cirque du Soleil, are growing as the use of wild animals becomes recognized as archaic, unsafe and inhumane.
For the sake of human safety and animal welfare, please stop using animals in Carson &Barnes,Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey.
People who support the circus should be ashamed of themselves. To sit there and watch these animals suffer a lot of them die and kill people. Do you blame them? I am so angry about this and how can you buy a show and sit there and watch them suffer?
Stillness Juniors was once a sought after school where parents would move into the catchment area so that their children could attend.
This school used to have a waiting list as classes were too full. So why in the last 4 years have parents been removing their children and placing them into other local schools or more drastically, moving out of the area all together?
Almost all the classes are now not fully subscribed. The amount of Teachers that have come and subsequently left the Juniors in the last 4 years is unprecedented. This in turn is affecting the superbly run infants & nursery school. If like me and many others you are unhappy with the way the Juniors is being run and feel that Stillness Junior School is desperately in need of a change of management then please sign this petition.
Let's again make Stillness Juniors a school we want to send our kids to. When we have enough signatures a copy will be sent to Ofsted, Lewisham Education Authority, the Mayor, our Local MPs, and the board of Governors. This petition in no way reflects against the hard working teachers in the juniors.

Im working on a project in my Launguage Arts class and i need to write a letter to a company to inform them that there sales will increase if they stop using animals as testing tools. I need all the info i can get. Please.
Did you know that most common household cleaners are polluting your indoor air and are bad for your health? Many all-purpose cleaners, oven cleaners, window cleaners, polishes, etc. are created from petroleum distillants, which are hazardous to your health.
Cleaners also contain dyes, perfumes, phosphates and formaldyde agents, which are dangerous to your health and which linger in the air that you are breathing in your homes. Many of these toxins are suspected carcinogens, and many are harmful to aquatic life when poured down the drain.
Companies do exist that create all of their cleaning products from safe and natural materials. Why are we supporting the companies that do not?
A few states still euthanize animals routinely using the gas chamber.
Using the gas chamber is not humane, it is merely a method of mass destruction and torture as seen in Hitler's Germany.
We see it as barbaric, as well as deem it cruel and unusual punishment when executing prisoners. Why then is it humane to execute innocent animals?
Please think about you being in their position and stop this barbaric means of euthanasia in North Carolina.

The Big Free is a concert held every year, put on by DSA, using student fees to bring a headlining band to Columbia.
This year, DSA has contracted using student fees to bring Three Six Mafia to campus. This group is notoriously oppressive to women, with songs titled "Slob on My Nob", and "Shake Dat Jelly".
It is the goal of this petition to stop DSA from bringing Three Six Mafia to Columbia, using student fees.

Startling revelations are surfacing in the "breaks in" news of the TBC radio.
We, a group of failed asylum seekers are living in the UK with fear of arrest and deportation to Sri Lanka at any time.
Mr.Ramraj assured us to obtain visas illegally using his association with the MP for Harrow west, Mr.Garath Thomas and the Councillor, Harrow Mr.Thaya Idaikadar.
In fear of returning to Sri Lanka, three of us barrowed from friends and paid him £5000 each in order to get the visa. However he could not help us in regularising our status as mentioned.
Therefore we asked him to refund the money. He started to threaten us to inform the Enforcement officials of the UK Immigration Service about our status in this country. He further said that we were from the LTTE and will inform to the UK Police that we were threatening him.
Despite this threat, we continued to pressurise him to get the money back. Then recently he asked us to wait in the midnight of 22nd of May 2005 in front of Domino Pizza, in Rayners Lane area. When we went there, he asked us to follow him. We went near a parked car (Metallic Green, R4 JRT) in the Warden Avenue. Then he gave us electronic equipments of possibly radio station and said that get your money from selling those equipments.
The Other day we heard the news that the TBC Radio Station was broken in. Later we got to know that he made a complaint at the Harrow Police Station that the LTTE suspects broke in his radio station.
In another interesting thing that the same Mr.Ramraj, one day had given money to one of another friends of us to buy a pay as you go sim card. Then Mr.Ramraj asked him to call to his Radio Station as well as to his mobile number using a phone with the same sim card frequently. Our friend was not aware as to why Mr.Ramraj asked him to do so.
Now we understand that the purpose of this is to manipulate and complain to the Police about the LTTE threat and to claim insurance falsely. In the recent news in his www.nitharsanam.net, www.vizhippu.net , the same phone number has been mentioned in relation to the "LTTE threat story".
We also learnt that he had a history of cheating the Insurance companies in the year of 2001 and 2003 respectively.
If the UK Immigration Service and the Police can give us guarantee not to remove us from the UK, we are happy to assist the Police or the relevant officials in this regard.
Horseland shouldn't ban players unless they have proof that they are indeed scamming, harrassing other players, or using foul language. Horseland shouldn't ban players unless they have evidence.
I know that it is very much need that we start taking more action to help save our ozone layer if we dont do something about this we will have global warming on our hands and everyone will be dead. I propose that we start using more ozone friendly resourses as power instead of fossil fuel. These resourses could include wind power, water power, clean electric power but it sould not be limited to these three. I really think we NEED to do this because if we dont then global warming will kill us all.
I want to live to see many more days without having to worry about this and i think that we sould really start thinking about the big picture: Can we go on doing what we are doing and not have this happen in the possible near future. I hope you take this as seriously as I do because I want are children to have a future.
Petition against Peru Community Schools for Bathroom Use Punishment.
There has been a situation during this 2004-2005 school year that was brought to my attention by my children. They were being punished with standing on the wall at recess for needing to use the restroom. I, Walter Campbell Jr., approached Thomas McKaig in a private meeting about the situation. I was told it is the teachers' discretion on how to handle bathroom privileges and that he had asked a Dr. and was told children could go 4 hours without needing to use the restroom. As you will find in my research, it is healthy for a child to use the restroom at least every 2 hours if not more. I brought up that children will have accidents from holding it and not wanting to get in trouble and his response was "Well more children haven't had accidents than have had accidents". I don't think these children should even have the opportunity to have an accident. Every child is different and they drink different amounts of liquid, body retains liquid differently, bladder sizes differ, along with many other differences in children. As I see it using the restroom is not a privilege, it is a necessity for health and psychological reasons. Nothing further was done to investigate the situation.
I did some research on the harms of children not being able to use the restroom and sent these items to school with my children and they were returned to me. The documentation can be viewed at http://www.childadvocate.org/1b.htm or http://www.nospank.net/frbw.htm .
My children are now allowed to go to the restroom when they need to without punishment, but ONLY my children. They are also being treated differently as they do not get in trouble when clearly they should or being let to do things any other child would not ordinarily be allowed to do. This is being done to keep me from filing a lawsuit about the bathroom policy. I do not feel this is fair to the rest of the children in the Peru Community School Corporation, as now this is discrimination to the other children, and ask that something be done. We as adults have OSHA to protect us and it is law that we are able to use the restroom at any time needed, why not our children.
I do know that at Blair Pointe that there are some classes where children are not allowed to use the restroom at all when asked. Then we have Jr. High and High School, where they are given 5 minutes between classes to get books, go to restroom, and make it across the school to get to class. This is not enough time for a normal human to complete such tasks.
I think that the school system has to understand that they need to conform to the needs of the students, not to the needs of the facility. We pay the taxes to keep our schools running and to teach our children. Teaching them that using the restroom is a punishable act is not what we as Miami County residents pay for.
I feel it is our responsibility as parents to know what our schools bathroom use policy is and remedy the situation so that our children know that using the restroom is a normal bodily function and not a punishable act. We as parents have an obligation to be sure our children are safe from physical and mental harm, but letting our schools punish children for a natural body function is considered abuse both physically and mentally. Continued denial of bathroom use will eventually harm our children physically and if they wet themselves they will be harmed mentally.

Acworth, Georgia - Cobb County.
This petition is being initiated on Tuesday, October 12, 2004 to urge our County Commissioner to close down the Yesteryear flea market. If you are from Cobb County, Paulding County, or Bartow County, I invite you to sign this petition to help keep our local traffic down and protect our neighborhoods.
This petition is initiated to close the Yesteryear flea Market on the corner of Highway 41 and Dallas Acworth Highway in Cobb County Georgia. This flea market has been generating an extreme amount of traffic and backups since the larger Highway 41 flea market closed and the vendors moved to the Yesteryear flea market that the local area cannot support.
The flea market does not have adequete parking for all its visitors. Visitors to the flea market are using residential neighborhoods and U-turn areas with no regard to families and children in those neighborhoods.
Visitors to the flea market are using personal driveways to turn around in and driving above the neighborhood speed limit of 25MPH. Due to this influx of traffic from the flea market, we as residents of the surrounding neighborhoods have had to restrict our children from playing outside and riding bikes in the neighborhood. In addition, it is extremely difficult to get in and out of our neighborhoods due to the increased traffic.
Finally, this property has become a major eye sore and makes the area look bad and decreasing the value of surrounding properties.
21. Torre Use Karsay
Joe Torre WILL YOU PLEASE START USING STEVE KARSAY?
Construction traffic is using 133rd as an access point into a new development known as Bexley Park. This is causing residents who's home abut 133rd to be subjected to extreme amounts of noise and polution which is thereby causing property damage and stress to these residents.
THE FDA HAS NO RIGHT TO TELL US WHAT WE CAN AND CANNOT USE TO KEEP OURSELVES HEALTHY. THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO REGULATE DRUGS, AND SINCE WHEN ARE MOST PLANTS DRUGS? PEOPLE HAVE BEEN USING PLANTS FOR CENTURIES, AND THE ONES STILL USING THE NATURAL APPROACH ARE THE ONES THAT ARE LIVING THE LONGEST AND HEALTHIEST.
ARTIFICIAL DRUGS HAVE A HIGHER DANGER THREAT THAN 99.9% OF MOST PLANTS. SINCE WHEN HAS A GOVERNMENT AGENCY BECOME MY KEEPER?
This petition has been created by a fan for fans in order to help fellow fans produce and show-off a safe, trouble free and/or individual display(s) at Ibrox using non-offensive flags and banners.
Many fans at Ibrox feel frustrated at not being allowed to string up flags and banners at Ibrox. As far as im aware there isnt a reason for the continual action of stewards and police telling supporters to remove their items.
One could understand the problem if these banners/flags were deemed to have offensive messages on them and/or compromising the safety of other fans - but this just simply is not the case.
There is nothing better than being able to get flags and banners on display as it makes the place a lot more colourful and I genuinely feel that the players and fans both respond to it in a positive way.
The much respected supporters group 'The Blue Order' have a small section at Ibrox in which they can hang thier banners and flags up. They arent doing anyone any harm & thier displays are always impressive.
I believe other supporters at every other part of the ground should have the chance to do the same thing.
Please take a minute to sign my petition and make the relevant people at Ibrox draw thier attention to this.
Thanks for reading and (hopefully) signing.
Using animals for unnessary experimention is not right. For example the University of Oregon has experiments in which they would sew kittens' eyes shut and were forced to then jump from a HEIGHT onto a platform surrounded by water so they could study the effects of sight deprivation on the brain.
These experiments are not only dense and stupor but they are also not needed. As we now have computers programs capable of being run to answer most of there questions. Using animals for medical experiments should only be used for a last resort.
How would you feel if I told you that Kraft Foods is capitalizing on making us sick and poisoning our environment? Kraft saves money by using genetically engineered ingredients and don't even warn us about them on the packaging! These genetically engineered ingredients result in side effects such as: allergies, antibiotic resistance, harm to beneficial insects like lady bugs, the creation of "super weeds" and the use of more pesticides.
All of this is true and we have to make our voices heard before this type of behavior among food companies spreads. Kraft's products such as Boca Burgers, Snackwell's crackers, Lunchables, Tombstone Pizza, Post Cereal and Stovetop Stuffing have all tested positive for genetically engineered ingredients and they are using us as and our environment to experiment with.
Hundreds of North Americans reported suffering from allergic reactions after eating Kraft and other products containing GE corn. However, Kraft continues to use genetically engineered ingredients in many of its products in North America.
Did you know that Kraft has pulled it's genetically engineered ingredients from products in Europe? Why you ask? Because of consumer pressure not to use GE ingredients! By removing these ingredients from Europe, Kraft proved that it can be done anywhere else in the world.
Let's send a message to Jim Pattison to not stock Kraft because we will not buy products containing GE ingredients. By doing so, we can ensure the protection of our health and conservation of Mother Nature.
It is very painful to see kids in LTTE. Sri.Velupillai Prabhakaran and Thiru.Anton Balasingam should stop using KIDS to fight.
No one has the right to take away the fun filled playful kids period. This voice is for the srilankan tamil kids.
Josh L. has continually been using other people's Magic The Gather decks! He should get himself one. Also a pokemon deck wouldn't hurt...
We the residents of C.R. 203/Old Nacogdoches Trl., Forney, TX, Kaufman County have concerns about our neighborhood. Tractor trailers are using C.R. 203 for access to Interstate 20. C.R. 203 is not designed for heavy equipment. C.R. 203 becomes unsafe for residents vehicles because of the wash-board affect that happens from the tractor trailers on a dirt road. The part of C.R. 203 that is paved has become as bad as the part that is not.
Concerns have been expressed to the owner of Sutton Fruit and Vegitable on the South side of Interstate 20 about the trucks going above the posted speed limit, but it has done no good.
We the residents of C.R. 203 would like to request that signs be constructed at both ends of C.R. 203 "No Trucks" and Speed Limit signs that are posted clearly for drivers.
Sources say the Navy decided to acknowledge the experiment, at least in part, because the sea lions were making so much noise in their pens at Bahrain harbor, home of the Navy's largest facility in the Persian Gulf.
Sea lions are not native to those waters and typically bark loudly when excited. There was no way their presence, officials decided, could be kept secret. No final decision has been made on whether the sea lions will stay.
The animals — along with dolphins and a beluga whale or two — are trained as part of the Navy's Marine Mammal Program in San Diego. They are trained to hunt for mines, to locate objects lost in deep water and to provide harbor security.
Intelligence officials have warned repeatedly about the threat of terrorists using divers to blow up ships. That's what both the sea lions and the dolphins are trained to deal with, among other things.
Working with human handlers, the sea lions are trained to locate unexpected swimming intruders, to snap a locking clamp on an arm or leg, then leave.
The clamp is connected to a rope and signal buoy that humans with guns would then reel up, presumably pulling up a human on the other end. In theory, the animals would not be hurt. Their contact with a potential terrorist — who would presumably be surprised — would last only an instant as they briefly made contact.
Eric Jensen, a veterinarian with the Navy program said: "When you study the animals and you come to realize what they can do in their own environment, the aquatic environment, it's no surprise that we have not been able to build a machine that can do what they do."
Sea Lions, Unlike Dolphins, Can Battle the Elements
Why sea lions?
During the Persian Gulf War and several times after, the Navy used specially trained dolphins to pull harbor guard duty. But their handlers discovered as the weather heated up and the water got warmer in the Gulf, the dolphins became sluggish and far less effective.
Officials say sea lions do not appear to be bothered as much by rising water temperature and they have one other advantage. Unlike a dolphin, a sea lion could continue chasing an enemy — if it came to that — onto dry land.
