Daily Voice : UK: Increase Funding for Domestic Violence Shelters!

UK: Increase Funding for Domestic Violence Shelters!

Battered women in the UK are in danger due to a lack of funding and ill-conceived regulations for safe houses. Specialized domestic violence shelters born out of the women's movement in the 1970s are being defunded in favour of facilities that serve males and independent accommodations provided by housing authorities.
Women are 89% more likely than males to be repeat victims of domestic violence. They need a safe space where they can share their feelings with other women who have gone through similar experiences. This place must be free of males whose presence is threatening to vulnerable women and interferes with their healing process. And yet the UK is setting time limits on how long women can stay in safe homes, and cutting funding for homes that don't also serve males.
The UK is sending women's rights back 40 years and forcing women to live on the streets or move back in with their abusers. Please sign the petition to urge the UK government to increase funding for domestic violence shelters!

Protect Caregivers from Losing Their Own Retirement!

Caring for a loved one with a long-term illness can be difficult and expensive, but it is something millions of Americans do every day.All too often caregivers are hit with devastating financial losses. Not only do caregivers face big expenses and lost wages, but they will also receive lower Social Security benefits when they retire.  Women, who provide the majority of caregiving, bear the brunt of this.A new bill, H.R. 5024, would provide a Social Security earnings credit to long-term caregivers. It would help ensure caregivers are not hurt in their own retirement because of the work they do for family members and loved ones.Caregiving is hard but incredibly valuable work.  We must support — not penalize — these selfless women and men.Take action today to protect the caregivers who are doing hard work across America. Tell your Representatives to support H.R. 5024

Daily Voice : Russia, Stop Wild Orca Captures!

Russia, Stop Wild Orca Captures!

Since the release of the film, “Blackfish,” there has been an increased worldwide outcry over the capture of Orcas. But that hasn’t stopped Russia from taking two from the wild in the last two weeks.According to some sources, these captures, which are shrouded in secrecy, are also taking place illegally because the Russian Federal Fisheries has not yet adopted a quota for wild capture. Since permits cannot be issued without a quota, any captures in the meantime would be unlawful says Erich Hoyt, with the Far East Russia Orca Project.These whales are now reportedly headed toward Komsomolsk on the Amur River in Russia'a Far East. However, hopefully, with current bans between Russia and the West on imports and exports, they won‘t be allowed out of Russia and will soon be back where they belong - their home in the Okhotsk Sea. We know captivity creates a miserable and unhealthy existence for Orcas, and they all belong in the wild.Tell Russia to stop these wild Orca captures and return all those it has taken back to their natural homes!

Daily Voice : Protect Children From Mining Pollution
« Reply #435 on: September 17, 2014, 01:00:31 PM »
Protect Children From Mining Pollution

A massive acid spill from the Buenavista copper mine in northern Mexico is wrecking havoc in the area. 10 million gallons of mining acid were released into a river, turning it orange and poisoning the water of 20,000 people. 88 local school are to be closed for weeks until the rivers are completely cleaned. The Buenavista mine is one of the largest copper mines in the world and is operated by the Mexican giant, Grupo Mexico. The company is being fined more than $3 million, but spokespeople for the company have been downplaying the accident. Worse, there's been no apology from the company's owner, German Larrea Mota Velasco. Mexico's environmental prosecutor has filed a criminal complaint against the company, yet production has continued unaltered. The company even expects to more than double production in an upcoming expansion!We can't let Grupo Mexico continue to place Mexican children at risk. Mining pollution is a problem not to be downplayed and ignored. Sign the petition to call on Grupo Mexico to halt production and expansion until they can take their responsibilities seriously.

Daily Voice : Ohio; Amend Vicious Dog Laws to Make Their Owners Held Responsible!
« Reply #436 on: September 18, 2014, 01:08:00 PM »
Ohio; Amend Vicious Dog Laws to Make Their Owners Held Responsible!

Please sign and share this petition everywhere possible in an effort to make our voices heard in changing some of the laws in Ohio regarding vicious dogs and their attacks on humans and other pets. The county prosecutor and commissioner is proposing such changes regarding the laws and penalties of vicious attacks that would make their owners held accountable. No one wants to consider harming an animal but dogs of any breed should not be free to harm others in the neighborhood, often but not always due to owner neglect or inappropriate care. Implementing changes to the vicious dog laws and penalties could help to put an end to the numerous attacks by some aggressive dogs in the area.
Dogs should be loving pets that are loyal and protective of their home and families but certainly not a threat of deadly attacks. Just recently, a woman by the name of Klonda Richey was mauled to death by two of the neighbor's dogs. Prior to the incident, she reported how dangerous she felt the dogs to be but nothing was done against the animals or their owners; there was no documented proof of past bites or attacks on humans but Ms. Richey somehow felt threatened and in danger of these two animals.
Because there was no history, there was no felony or homicide indictments placed against the dogs and their owners, even though they viciously mauled this young woman to her last breath. According to news release, the grand jury heard from 18 people, including the victim's friends, contract workers, neighbors, police officers, the coroner, a veterinarian and other experts. After this trial and incident, Officials are hopeful of making changes under the city's ordinances.
Some of their efforts includes offering a training seminar next month for local law enforcement, animal shelter workers and local prosecutors to improve the response and investigation of animal complaints. Other amendments to the laws and penalties regarding vicious dog attacks includes specific language that refers to a nuisance, dangerous or vicious dog be changed to remove the "without provocation" language from the statutes. The language would also include dogs that cause injury or death to any companion animal, not just another dog.
Officials are also asking that a registry of nuisance, dangerous or vicious dogs be compiled along with any complaints made by the public and others so it can be accessible to local law enforcement, dog wardens, humane societies and other officials. Other possible provisions include:

Provide new fines and other criminal penalties for those dog owners who willfully evade service of complaints made against their dogs.              
Add new criminal penalties for anyone who owns or keeps a dog that kills or causes serious physical harm to another person.

Changes need to be made so that there will be no further tragic accidents involving dog attacks. Most people would like to think they are safe in their own neighborhood that has dogs for pets. With the enhancement of current laws and further training, the community could be a safer place to live without further incidents of dog bites and vicious attacks.
Please sign and share this petition everywhere possible in an effort to make our voices heard in changing some of the laws in Ohio regarding vicious dogs and their attacks on humans and other pets. The county prosecutor and commissioner is proposing such changes regarding the laws and penalties of vicious attacks that would make the owners held accountable.

Daily Voice : Ensure Patient Access to Life-Saving Marrow Transplants
« Reply #437 on: September 19, 2014, 01:00:23 PM »
Ensure Patient Access to Life-Saving Marrow Transplants

Are you the difference between life and death?

Every four minutes, someone in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer like leukemia or lymphoma.

For many of these patients, an actual cure exists — a bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant could save their life.

But recent across-the-board federal funding cuts are putting lives in jeopardy: $3 million has been diverted away from the life-saving programs run by Be The Match®, the national nonprofit that connects patients with their donor match for a life-saving transplant.

That means 20,000 potential bone marrow donors and 1,000 cord blood units may not be added to the national registry this year — additions that could be a patientâ??s only match, and only cure.  

When you or a loved one are diagnosed with cancer, you should be able to receive the care needed to beat your disease. You know this, we know this, but sometimes Congress needs a reminder.

You can do something about this.

On behalf of cancer patients everywhere, add your name to the petition urging Congress to restore and expand federal funding to programs supporting vital bone marrow transplant services.

Daily Voice : Take a Stand Against Nuclear Weapons
« Reply #438 on: September 20, 2014, 01:21:08 PM »
Take a Stand Against Nuclear Weapons

On April 24th, the Marshall Islands filed landmark cases in the International Court of Justice and U.S. Federal District Court. Their claim is that the nine nuclear-armed nations have failed to comply with their obligations, under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty and customary international law, to pursue negotiations for the worldwide elimination of nuclear weapons.

They act for the seven billion of us who live on this planet to end the nuclear weapons threat hanging over all humanity.

Nuclear weapons threaten everything we love and treasure in this world. To protect humanityâ??s future, we need to support the Marshall Islands in their effort to ensure the Nuclear Zero promise is enforced.

We call upon the nuclear weapon nations to urgently fulfill their moral duty and legal obligation to begin negotiations for complete nuclear disarmament. Zero is the only safe number of nuclear weapons on the planet.

World leaders need to know it's the will of the people to reach Nuclear Zero.  Be a hero for Nuclear Zero and add your voice today.

Starbucks, NY - Please Train Your Staff on Serving Patrons With Service Dogs

Please sign and share this petition in an attempt to ask Starbucks in Rochester, New York and all of its stores nationwide; please train all of your staff on how to care for and handle patrons who enter the premises with a service dog. Although the store has apologized to a woman refused service because of her dog, it is imperative that staff is efficiently informed on how to provide the best service such an individual.
Ms. Amy Kaplan, 24 went into a Starbucks in Brighton, NY earlier this month and was refused service because of her service dog. Although the employee who waited on Ms. Kaplan says he did not deny her service, he would not allow her to come into the store with her service dog, Zero, a Malamute. It is understandable that a service dog must clearly be identified when going out into public with its human, Ms. Kaplan was clearly refused service; she can't just leave her dog outside and the dog is necessary in helping her in normal activities.
Amy was in a severe vehicle crash two years earlier that left her with a traumatic brain injury and she also suffers with a severe form of bipolar disorder. A bus crashed into the ambulance that she worked in as an emergency responder. Zero is trained to assist her in everything from coping with memory issues that stem from her brain injury, such as difficulty remembering where her car is parked or locating her apartment, to managing anxiety.
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, businesses that serve the public are required to allow people with disabilities to bring their service animals inside. The federal government advises businesses to ask only if an animal is a service animal required because of a disability and what tasks it has been trained to perform. People should be able to show that the dog is indeed a service animal but under law does not have to have it exposed.
Ms. Kaplan states that "This is a part of daily life when you're a service dog handler. Everywhere you go, nobody wants to let me in." Spokesperson Harper for Starbucks made an effort to contact the young lady with an apology. She further stated that "It's unfortunate that this happened. Ms. Kaplan did have an experience that's absolutely inconsistent with our values and our service animal policy."
The company has offered a sincere apology but Ms. Kaplan wants them to ensure all staff are fully trained on caring for patrons with service dogs so that no one else is humiliated and refused service. Please sign and share this petition in an attempt to ask Starbucks in Rochester, New York and all of its stores nationwide; please train all of your staff on how to care for and handle patrons who enter the premises with a service dog. Although the store has apologized to a woman refused service because of her dog, it is imperative that staff is efficiently informed on how to provide the best service such an individual.
