I realize this is Sunday and a slow day for LJ, but I really think if we all pitch in and repost this, we can raise the $3,000-ish they need to fund this in the next 14 hours.


Drug Rape Prevention: DrinkSavvy Color Changing Drinkware

The problem is tha date rape drugs are odorless, colorless, and tasteless nce they’re in your drink.  We all know not to leave our drinks unattended, but the reality is it’s impossible to keep an eye on your drink all night
So what’s the solution?  With the help of Dr. John MacDonald, a
professor of chemistry at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and with the
help of Contract Researching Organizations, DrinkSavvy is developin
material that will immediately change color to warn you if a drug is slipped into your drink.

Great!  But it doesn’t stop there.  Together, DrinkSavvy will have the funding necessary to full develop the materia anddrinkware directly from this material, such as Plastic Straws and Stirrers, Plastic Party Cups an Glassware.        

That mean discrete, 100% effortless, and continuous drink monitoring throughout the night, because the same drinkware that you are drinking with…is also the color changing material that makes invisible drugs visible.

While DrinkSavvy’s initial goal is to perfect our design to make our
products available online and free to select rape crisis centers,
DrinkSavvy’s ultimate goal is to use the success of this campaign to
convince bars, clubs, and colleges to make DrinkSavvy th new safety standard nd eventuall make drug-facilitated sexual assault a crime of the past

So please, back DrinkSavvy to be a part of something that will change
the world for the better.  Back DrinkSavvy to be a part of something
that has never been done before, and back DrinkSavvy to prevent someone
you care about from possibly being the victim of drug-facilitated sexual
assault. Thank you all so much in advance, and remember, when you’re
out drinking, drink smart, drink safe DrinkSavvy.

CONTRIBUTE NOW!

I know there has been a lot of conflicting news about whether Lennox, the dog in Belfast who was forcibly taken from his family due to his assumed breed, is still alive or whether he has been euthanized. For a time many thought that the battle had been lost and he had been killed, but he is still alive and his family is trying to push through one final appeal to have him sent to the United States where he has a new, safe home waiting for him. They are asking anyone who is willing to send an email (the text is provided- they want all emails to say the same thing) to the addresses provided at the last link below. The emails need to be sent TODAY- July 9, 2012. Please, let's all give Lennox one last shot at life.

Here's their next move: The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, would obliterate any semblance of online privacy in the United States.

And CISPA would provide a victory for content owners who were shell-shocked by the unprecedented outpouring of activism in opposition to SOPA and Internet censorship.

The House of Representatives is planning to take up CISPA later this month. Click here to ask your lawmakers to oppose it.

SOPA was pushed as a remedy to the supposed economic threat of online piracy -- but economic fear-mongering didn't quite do the trick.

So those concerned about copyright are engaging in sleight of hand, appending their legislation to a bill that most Americans will assume is about keeping them safe from bad guys.

This so-called cyber security bill aims to prevent theft of "government information" and "intellectual property" and could let ISPs block your access to websites -- or the whole Internet.

Don't let them push this back-door SOPA. Click here to demand that your lawmakers oppose CISPA.

CISPA also encourages companies to share information about you with the government and other corporations.

That data could then be used for just about anything -- from prosecuting crimes to ad placements.

And perhaps worst of all, CISPA supercedes all other online privacy protections.

Please click here to urge your lawmakers to oppose CISPA when it comes up for a vote this month.

Thanks for fighting for the Internet.

-Demand Progress
I don't know why this is the first time mention of CISPA has made it to my f-list, but I trust you all know what to do!

Help.

This is a total long shot, but... A long time ago one of the featured LJ communities was a comm whose main purpose was to post what topic you were interested in and people would comment with suggestions of (usually active) communities.

I've been through the featured communities as far back as I can get and I haven't been able to find it again. Do any of you happen to have any idea what I'm talking about??
