The FCC is now moving to end net neutrality.

Send your outrage to FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler by clicking here now!

Three months ago, Demand Progress and RootsAction joined with allied groups to deliver a petition with a million signatures to the FCC in support of net neutrality — to keep the whole Internet available to everyone. Last night, the news broke that the FCC intends to blow us off and betray the principle of equal access to the Internet.

Tell Chairman Wheeler and the rest of the FCC that we will not stand for this.

When he received those 1 million signatures in January, the FCC chairman said: “One of the great things about what the Internet does and why it needs to stay open, it enables people to organize and express themselves. A million people? That’s boffo.”

Chairman Wheeler apparently thought a pat on the head would satisfy us. It certainly will not. We don’t want empty rhetoric — we want a commitment to the democratic principle of net neutrality.

Yesterday, Wheeler, a former cable TV and cell phone industry lobbyist, revealed proposed new rules — drafted by himself — that would end net neutrality. Big corporations would pay for faster delivery of their content, making it difficult for smaller operations to compete.

Tell Chairman Wheeler and the rest of the Federal Communications Commission: we want action for democratic media, not platitudes as smokescreens for corporate domination of the Internet.

Ironically, last night’s news of the FCC’s impending action emerged on the same day that Brazil created the world’s first Internet bill of rights — protecting exactly the democratic principles that Chairman Wheeler and his FCC cohorts are on the verge of assaulting.

Click here to quickly communicate with the FCC — then forward, post and share this urgent message far and wide.

The future of an open Internet depends on us.

Thank you!

I sincerely thought it could be a moss ball at first. But it was actually Ohagi, a kind of popular wagashi, sort of mochi.

In fact, I had never seen this type of ohagi before, and I learned later that weed-covered ohagi is typical Kansai(west part of Japan) edition, while in Tokyo and many other parts of Japan, powdered black sesame is more common.

The taste was okay, but the combination of sweet bean paste and the smell of sea is unfamiliar to me and thus I felt it a little bit strange. o_O

You know, this type of green nori is generally sprinkled over okonomiyaki and takoyaki.

I love how Kiva’s OP has an almost American-Rock feel to it music wise. I can’t really explain it, but that makes it memorable among the rest of Kamen Riders’ OPs.

So you know how bronies started patting themselves on the back recently for changing how McDonald’s refers to its childrens’ toys?

Um.

Antonia Ayres-Brown was actually fighting this fight for the last six years, thank you.

She was all of eleven years old when she started jabbing McDonald’s over this; what an awesome kid with an amazingly supportive dad. She kept at it, and eventually made a real and important difference. Go Antonia!

  1. Get some cheap dishes and break them when you get upset.
  2. Learn how to say “NO” and don’t feel guilty about it
  3. Buy something frivolous for yourself once in awhile, like a new hat. 
  4. Never again do anything you don’t want to do. 

that’s damn good advice

nowadays they just prescribe you some medications and if that doesn’t work, they add more.

Around that time my grandmother was a nervous wreck from dealing with her six kids, and the family doctor recommended she take up smoking to calm her nerves. She mostly ignored the advice because she couldn’t afford that many cigarettes.
