UNITED FOR GLOBAL CHANGE


 
http://www.15october.net/ 
On October 15th people from all over the world will take to the streets and squares. From America to Asia, from Africa to Europe, people are rising up to claim their rights and demand a true democracy. Now it is time for all of us to join in a global non-violent protest.

The ruling powers work for the benefit of just a few, ignoring the will of the vast majority and the human and environmental price we all have to pay. This intolerable situation must end.

United in one voice, we will let politicians, and the financial elites they serve, know it is up to us the people to decide our future. We are not goods in the hands of politicians and bankers who do not represent us.

On October 15th, we will meet on the streets to initiate the global change we want. We will peacefully demonstrate, talk and organize until we make it happen.
It's time for us to unite. It's time for them to listen.
People of the world, rise up on October 15th!

What To Do if You Spot Animal Abuse



If you think that an animal is being abused or neglected, it is important that you do something about it. Your involvement may be the animal’s only hope. 
Where to StartFirst, find out which agency is responsible for investigating and enforcing the anti-cruelty laws in your state, county, or town. This may be a local humane society or SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) or a taxpayer-funded animal shelter (animal control). In jurisdictions without a humane society or animal-management department, citizens can call upon the police or sheriff’s department to enforce the law.
If the animal victim is not in immediate need of rescue, check state and local animal-protection laws by visiting your local library or city hall or by conducting an online search. Print out a copy of any laws that you believe are being violated, and be ready to cite these laws to authorities. In most states, causing an animal “unnecessary suffering” is illegal. That term can include everything from beating an animal to depriving him or her of clean water, food, or shelter.
If the animal is in a life-threatening situation, call authorities immediately. Follow up with them in a timely manner to determine their findings and course of action. If they do not respond right away, call PETA.
Gathering EvidenceOnce you have determined which law-enforcement agency to contact (and ensured that the animal is not in imminent danger), provide authorities with a short, concise, factual, written statement, detailing the key points of what you have observed and giving dates, locations, and approximate times. Timely fact-gathering is crucial—the more time that passes, the greater the risk that specifics will be forgotten, witnesses will move, evidence will disappear, injuries will heal, etc. If you can, take pictures and date them; photographic or videotaped evidence fortifies your case, and short, factual, written statements from other witnesses will back up your observations.
Always keep a record of everyone you contact (official or otherwise), the dates of the contacts, and the content and outcome of your discussions. Never pass on a letter, photograph, or any documentation without first creating a copy for your file. Make it crystal clear to authorities that you wish to pursue this case and are willing to lend your assistance if necessary, and be sure to follow up! If you stay involved, they’re more likely to do the same.
Law-enforcement officials should inspect the animal visually, and if possible, conduct a hands-on field exam (referred to as “palpating” the animal) in order to find injuries or an otherwise unhealthy physical condition that may be obscured by the victim’s fur. Officials will often be fooled by a dog who “acts happy,” but manic or social behavior does not mean that the animal is safe; he or she may just be anxious to please or desperate for attention. A more thorough examination is necessary, and an injured or clearly endangered animal must not be left behind. The crime scene should also be thoroughly inspected for any indication that abuse has occurred. Suspects and neighbors (potential witnesses) should be interviewed. If the investigator agrees that your complaint has merit, a warning may be issued, charges filed, a warrant served, and/or the animal(s) removed.
Pursuing Your CasePersistence has saved countless animals from abusive people. If you are unable to get satisfaction from law-enforcement officers, go straight to their supervisors. If necessary, appeal to local government officials, such as the mayor, prosecutor, city council members, or county commissioners. A simple call to the media (TV and print) in your area can move mountains. News coverage often forces officials to act and can also scare the abuser into stopping the cruel behavior. News coverage may also inspire viewers who have seen similar acts to step forward and share their own accounts.
If you have personally witnessed an act of cruelty, you can go to your local magistrate or police commissioner and swear out a warrant to summon the abuser to court. Expert witnesses can be very helpful—a veterinarian, for example, can sign a statement that it is his or her “expert opinion” that a dog suffers if swung by a leash, deprived of food, etc. If you know a sympathetic veterinarian, seek his or her assistance, and let officials know that you have expert support.
Call PETA for HelpAdvocating for abused or neglected animals can be difficult and heart-wrenching, but they are depending on you to find the strength to take action. You are in the position to make all the difference in the world for the animals in your community. Please feel free to contact PETA if you need guidance or support, or if officials fail to respond quickly to your complaint.

TEDx COIMBRA 2011

MANIFESTO



...e se os pensamentos voassem?

...se os pensamentos voassem,
as ideias poderiam ser como o vento,
que quando passeia cada um de nós o pode sentir,
ora como uma brisa, quando quer ser discreto,
ora como uma rajada, quando precisa de se impor e a quem ninguém é indiferente!

...imaginemos as ideias no ar,

invisíveis ao nosso olhar,
mas impossíveis de ignorar,
a pular de cérebro em cérebro,
a poisar nas nossas mentes
e a fazer-nos projectar o nosso futuro.

...se os pensamentos voassem seria possível,
mesmo sem falarmos,
cada um de nós oferecer a partilha das suas vivências,
sem receio de revelar a sua coragem de ser diferente.

No TEDxCoimbra é possível respirar o mesmo vento de ideias e encher-nos de coragem para moldar a nossa sociedade.

Vamos deixar os nossos pensamentos voarem no próximo dia 15 de Outubro de 2011!

como pode ajudar a natureza em Portugal


retirado do site http://www.wwf.pt
A consciência ambiental e a conservação da natureza devem ser exercitadas não só pela sociedade, mas também por cada um de nós no nosso dia a dia.
Ao fazermos a nossa parte em casa, no trabalho e mobilizando as pessoas que nos são próximas, estamos a colaborar para um planeta mais saudável.

1. Prefira cortiça: sempre que beber uma garrafa de vinho confirme se esta é engarrafada com rolha de cortiça. Ao escolher cortiça nenhuma árvore irá ser cortada, só a casca da árvore é utilizada para produzir as rolhas e a árvore fica sempre viva. Escolher cortiça ajuda a manter uma economia muito importante para Portugal, cerca de 70.000 pessoas vivem deste negócio e o nosso País é o maior produtor e exportador de cortiça do mundo; é ainda uma escolha amiga do ambiente porque está a ajudar a preservar espécies que só vivem associadas aos sobreiros como são o caso do lince ibérico e águia imperial. E já agora pense nisto quando abrir aquela garrafa de champanhe em ocasiões especiais!

2. Escolha produtos com a marca FSC. Isso significa que as suas escolhas estão a favor do Planeta. A WWF em Portugal tem vindo a promover a marca FSC como aquela que garante a gestão responsável das florestas. Assim, sempre que adquirir produtos de origem florestal (madeira, papel, cortiça, etc), deverá procurar a marca FSC.

3. Opte por produtos amigos do ambiente – em Portugal existem um conjunto de produtos à venda com o logo da WWF. Ao escolhê-los está a contribuir para apoiar a actividade da WWF no nosso País:
  • Experimente o Pão Panda, um pão rico em cereais e excelentes qualidades nutritivas. As sementes e grãos provenientes de diversas partes do mundo conferem ao Pão Panda características especiais e um sabor único e irresistível. Uma percentagem do valor de venda deste pão (0,05€) reverte a favor da WWF e dos projectos que desenvolvemos em Portugal.

5. Jogos WWF - A Merchand Embassador, especialista na produção de brinquedos e jogos para crianças, estabeleceu uma parceria com a WWF para a produção e comercialização de jogos didácticos para crianças; estes jogos são educativos, constituindo uma forma da crianças desenvolver o conhecimento sobre algumas das espécies mais emblemáticas do mundo, algumas delas em perigo de extinção, e seus habitats. O puzzle em 3D do uso polar, o xadrez Bacia do Congo, o jogo do galo Tartaruga ou as damas Elefantes e Tartarugas são alguns exemplos de jogos educativos, divertidos, seguros para as crianças e ambientalmente responsáveis – o produto e os manuais são 100% certificados pelo FSC.
Em Portugal já pode encontrar este jogos nos hipermercados Modelo Continente; ao adquirir um destes produtos, está a contribuir para a actividade da WWF: 10% do valor do jogo reverte a favor da organização global de conservação da natureza.
