Demand justice for Zeus the cat brutally killed by a hammer and then hung in a tree

A beautiful cat was found dead hanging in a tree with its eye missing after days of sadistic taunting by the feline’s killer after it went missing.


The horrific ordeal began for Zeus the cat days before he disappeared when he returned home partially shaved. Two other cats on the street in Morayfield, Queensland have also been found partially shaved.


Zeus then disappeared from the family house and in a sick and twisted game, a tuft of fur from Zeus was placed into the owner’s house every day after the disappearance.


Zeus’ owners put up posters of Zeus, desperate to bring their ‘friendly, playful’ cat back home.


Then the dreaded phone call came – he was found dead hanging in a tree with an eye missing.


The RSPCA conducted an autopsy on the cat and found that he had been killed by a blow to the head with a hammer before his body had been hung in the tree.


The sick and twisted killer of Zeus must be found and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Other cats in the street and surrounding area may be awaiting the same horrific fate.


Please sign and share the petition to demand justice for Zeus the cat.

Encourage thorough Investigation into Stoning Death of Mountain Lion

Please sign and share this petition worldwide in an effort to encourage a thorough investigation into the stoning death of a mountain lion in the canyon area. By spreading the word everywhere possible, someone who knows any information can lead to a possible and arrest for the untimely demise of this poor free animal.


Just recently in the Payson canyon area in Utah, while on a hike, a man and his daughter came across a small dead mountain lion along the hiking path. These hikers also noted a group of youngsters near the dead animal; the man yelled and the kids fled. The animal appeared to have been stoned to death, with large rocks tossed about near its’ body. This witness contacted authorities to report the incident.


This was a young mountain lion that was targeted by these youngsters; an unacceptable act and these young people need to be held responsible for their abusive, inappropriate behavior. State wildlife officials say people can provide information about the crime anonymously to the agency's tip line at 1-800-662-3337. The untimely death of this young cat needs to be dealt with and the culprits brought to justice.


The Wildlife officials state that it is always wise to keep your distance from a wild animal while hiking, giving them the respect and space they need and deserve. In most cases, they do not want to be around you as much as you don’t want to be around them. In this case, it appears the animal was particularly targeted which is a crime.


Please sign and share this petition worldwide in an effort to encourage a thorough investigation into the stoning death of a mountain lion in the Payson canyon area. By spreading the word everywhere possible, someone who knows any information can lead to a possible arrest and punishment for the untimely demise of this poor free animal.

Revise the STAAR Test and new math TEKS to make them age appropriate for 3-8!

 We are petitioning for our Texas Legislatures to address these 3 issues in the upcoming session.


1) Revise the STAAR Assessment to make it an appropriate length for our 3-8 students. 


2) Reduce the number of math concepts taught in each grade to allow for teaching more depth.


 3) Refocus the Math TEKS on standard math principles and models. 


The STAAR test length must be revised to a more appropriate length for our students. Research shows that students can pay attention an average of 3 to 5 minutes for every year of their age. An average 3rd grader without any attention issues would be able to focus an average of 24 to 45 minutes. However, the STAAR test is designed as a 4 hour test. It has 54 math questions, the same number of math questions as the SAT. The following day, students will be again testing, this time with a 5 story reading test , each story having 8-10 critical thinking questions. It is in no way appropriate for our young students to be taking a test as long as high school graduate would take on an SAT. Something must change!

In addition to the test itself, the state has approved new math standards that are not good for our students. Many skills have moved down several grade levels, and skills that students struggled with in previous grades are now being introduced even younger. There are exceptionally more skills to cover, and all before the STAAR test. This makes depth impossible, as teaching skills requires introducing and mastering the basic skill before higher level problem solving can be introduced. With the number and pacing of these new skills, our children are being left in the dust.
There is also a new "Common Core" direction the new skills are trying to take students and teachers, that seems to be only confusing and harmful to our students. Rather than focusing on finding the correct answer, these new skills now focus on the many different processes our children could use to find the answer. Many questions are asking how students would find an answer using different methods, rather than what the answer is. This means that rather than focusing on teaching the standard method for our basic math, teachers are required to teach our students at least 5 different ways to subtract. Many of the skills in our new math TEKS were literally cut and pasted verbatim from Common Core curriculum, which has been outlawed in our state under House Bill 462. This method is not good for our kids and leaves parents in the dark trying to help their children. This is actually causing confusing and hindering students from developing good math skills.

Daily Voice : Tell Facebook: Let Tibetans Be Heard
« Reply #548 on: January 13, 2015, 12:00:16 AM »
Tell Facebook: Let Tibetans Be Heard

On December 26, Tibetan writer and activist Tsering Woeser used her Facebook page to post a report and video of a Buddhist monk's self-immolation in Tibet. Within hours, Facebook deleted the post because it allegedly violated the social media giant's "community standards."



Frankly, what's actually being violated is Woeser's freedom of expression and millions of Tibetans' basic human right to have their suffering known by the world. Censoring the truth about China's oppression of Tibetans — so severe and pervasive that some see setting themselves on fire as their only way to be heard — is wrong and shameful.



Some, including the New York Times, have implied that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is trying to win favor with Chinese government officials in hopes of expanding his business to China. If that is the case, he needs to know that moral values such as free speech and respect for Tibetans' lives are more important than profits. If he thinks people of conscience like you won't protest censorship, he needs to think again!



Sign the International Campaign for Tibet's petition telling Facebook to let Tibetans be heard.

Daily Voice : Protect Monarch Butterflies from Monsanto

Protect Monarch Butterflies from Monsanto

A new study from researchers from the University of Minnesota and Iowa State University suggests that the increased use of genetically modified crops may be causing monarch butterfly population declines


The number of monarch eggs in the Midwestern United States declined by 81 percent during a period that GM crops became more common on U.S. farms, 1999- 2010.


The widespead use of the Monsanto's herbicide, Roundup, sprayed on fields on genetically modified corn and soybean crops, is killing milkweed; the plant on which monarchs lay their eggs.


We ask the EPA to restict the use of the herbicide, Roundup, and consider current reseach to protect the monarch butterfly.

NO ALLA CHIUSURA DEL CANILE DI CODRONGIANOS (SS) I CANI NON SONO "RIFIUTI.." !!!!!...

(English title: "Don't close the Kennel of Codrongianos (SS, North Sardinia, Italy) - Dogs are not Waste!" Please find English translation of this petition below its Italian text.  Facebook link is : https://www.facebook.com/events/327806007429727/?source=1)


In barba alla normativa nazionale sul benessere animale, in Sardegna sempre piu’ si viene a conoscenza di cani trasferiti da una struttura a un’altra, spesso piu’ lontana dei 50 km previsti per legge. Queste vere e proprie “deportazioni” di cani sono dovute spesso esclusivamente, a motivi economici. Cio' sta accadendo nel comune sardo di Codrongianos (SS) ove, per provvedimento della Giunta Comunale, l’attività del relativamente piccolo, ma funzionale, canile comunale è stata immaginate –sospesa- a decorrere dal 1 gennaio 2015. Dunque, a breve, una scandalosa deportazione di cani sigillera’ LA CHIUSURA del CANILE COMUNALE: un canile che una volta svuotato, come accaduto in altri casi dopo la chiusura, quasi sicuramente verra' vandalizzato dai ladri...e dei soldi pubblici spesi per costruirlo, fondi europei e regionali che sono i NOSTRI soldi a chi importa??.. ma soprattutto “chissenefrega” se i cani che li' vivono da anni ora verranno deportati.  Ricordiamo che il benessere dei cittadini come quello degli animali per l'organo monocratico a capo del governo di un Comune, dovrebbe essere la norma di tutti i provvedimenti!!!! ..Illustri Signori Sindaci, i cani non sono rifiuti da conferire in megadiscariche a un tanto al chilo, ma cittadini del proprio territorio e come tali soggetti di diritto!!.. PERCIO’ NOI DICIAMO NO ALLA CHIUSURA DEL CANILE DI CODRONGIANOS (SS) SINO A CHE AVREMO FIATO IN GOLA!!!!! In caso di “trasferimento” il Sindaco rimane il responsabile dei cani prelevati sul proprio territorio e dovrebbe evitare che i propri cani finiscano in megastrutture sovraffollate (la normativa prevede max 250 cani), i.e. detenzione di animali in condizioni incompatibili con la loro natura (tenere custoditi gli animali in condizioni di eccessivo sovraffollamento integra il reato di cui all’art. 727, comma 2, cod. pen., atteso che la presenza di animali in sovrannumero costituisce una scelta imprenditoriale diretta a sacrificare il benessere degli animali alle logiche del profitto). A livello etologico e comportamentale, dopo tanti anni di buona permanenza dei cani nel proprio canile (tra l'altro un canile funzionale e ad altissimo numero di adozioni n.d.r) ritieniamo pura follia che i cani debbano essere sottoposti ad uno stress psicofisico incalcolabile, con conseguenze irreversibili sulla loro salute e benessere. Ecco una storia che è sotto gli occhi di tutti ma che in pochi vedono e che pure dovrebbe riguardare ciascun cittadino, se non altro per lo sperpero di denaro pubblico che vi sta dietro. Una storia dove gli attori sono tanti ma anche una storia di cui si vuole parlare poco perché, alla fine, il silenzio conviene a tutti. A chi non deve impegnarsi a risolvere il problema o a chi purtroppo, su questo problema, continua a lucrare.


ENGLISH TRANSLATION


WE SAY NO TO THE END OF CODRONGIANOS' KENNEL!!.. The atrocious deportation of all its dogs will complete the end of CODRONGIANOS MUNICIPAL KENNEL (Codrongianos is a very small town of North Sardinia, Italy) : a kennel that once emptied, as often happens, almost certainly will be vandalized by thieves ... what about the public money spent to build it, European and regional funds which are our money who cares ?? .. and above all "who cares" are the dogs which lived there for years and now will be deported ..! Recall that the welfare of the citizens as that of animals should be the norm for all measures !!!!  Dear Mayors, dogs are not rubbish at so much per pound, but citizens of your territory and, as such, are subject to the law !! .. THUS WE SAY NO TO THE END OF CODRONGIANOS KENNEL !!!!!  At an ethological and behavioral level, after many years of good permanence of the dogs in their kennels (among other things a kennel functional and with very high numbers of adoptions) we believe crazy that dogs will be subjected to a physical and psychological stress with invaluable consequences and irreversible impact on their health and wellness. Here is a story that is before the eyes of all and that which should concern every citizen, if only for the squandering of public money behind it. A story where the actors are so many but also a story people don't want to talk much because, in the end, the silence is convenient for everyone.. whom does not have to commit to solve the problem or whom unfortunately, on this issue, continues to gain.

Daily Voice : Merck - Stop Sale of Drug Used In Growth of Cows, Harming Them!!
« Reply #551 on: February 19, 2015, 07:02:16 AM »
Merck - Stop Sale of Drug Used In Growth of Cows, Harming Them!!

Please sign and share this petition in an effort to encourage the company Merck to discontinue the drug Zilmax. Zilmax is part of a class of drugs called beta agonists, which are chemically similar to the human hormone adrenaline. It is a drug that was used to make the beef build muscle but caused many other ill effects. Several meat producers will not accept Zilmax-fed cattle meat. It serves no good purpose and we are working to stop its production and sales.

The Food and Drug Administration has concerns about the use of the drug Zilmax in the cattle industry. It was given to cattle as a way to get them to gain weight quicker. Meat packing industry is appalled at the effects of the drug and many refuse to buy cattle that have been treated with Zilmax.

Researchers report that the cows suffer with the drug with what they call "cattle fatigue syndrome." They show typical signs of pain, suffering, becoming immobile and walk or move properly. Many exporters and importers will not accept Zilmax fed cows. Merck is doing further studies on the drug, hoping to bring it back but we need to get this drug pulled off the market. It serves no beneficial purpose.

Merck is the producer of Zilmax and we are working to encourage discontinuation of Zilmax and save cows and the cattle industry from its ill effects. Please support this issue by signing and sharing this petition worldwide and stop the production of this drug.
