Normally I'm not one for propaganda but this is for a good cause, a great cause even that has stolen the lives and innocence of far too many. Watch this. Have a box of tissues ready. Prepare to be shocked and horrified and heartbroken. It's worth it. It really is.

KONY 2012 from INVISIBLE CHILDREN on Vimeo.



I've never heard of Joseph Kony, and I bet most of you haven't either. He's a truly evil man who has turned children into soldiers and sex slaves for over twenty years. He's the founder of the the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), operating in Africa, and he has no purpose except to gain power. For the majority of that time, he did so with very little international attention. No one cared. Until now.

People are standing up, speaking up to the injustices, wanting something to be done. The campaign is seeking donations, but more than that it's after attention. I say give it to them. The more people that know the better.

Even if you can't donation, at least spread the word. It doesn't matter who you are or where you live. Every voice counts in this.

Google Privacy Issues: Web History

If you are going to do this, you need to do it before March 1st. It has been said that users will not be able to do anything about this after that date.

With reference to Google's policy changes and how everything you do with your Google account will be tied together into their super-cauldron of information, you will probably want to clear your Google Web History out - if you turned that feature on - before month's end. After that, you won't be able to clear it, and everything you search for will be connected with your account.

To check settings and/or clear out your Web History:

1. Go to Google. If you aren't signed in already, do so.
2. In the top right-hand corner you'll find your email address or name, perhaps an icon if you have a Plus account, and a little downward facing arrow. Click on the arrow and a menu will pop up.
3. Click to 'Account Settings'. This will take you to a page called 'Accounts'. (If you have a Plus account, you might go via a Plus sign-in page.)
4. Scroll down to a section called 'Services'. Here you'll find an option called 'View, enable, or disable web history', which has a link next to it. Click on the link.
5. If you never turned web history on, you'll get a page asking if you want to turn this service on. Just click 'No Thanks' and all is good. If you did turn it on, you should have a list of your searches. At the top there is a button that says 'Remove All History'. Click this and follow the instructions which will remove all items from your Web History and pause the feature so nothing else will be added in future.


Also, you can completely remove Web History as a service from your account by clicking THIS LINK, checking the tick-box and confirming you want to remove Web History. To be safe, it is probably best to do the steps above first to remove any history that might have already been collected.


Favor

Hey Everyone. I tried to post this last week, but frankly, I kept fucking up the link.

My husband just started posting original fiction is wondering if someone (other than me) could give it a look.  His LJ is here. The link is to his first story. It's about 3, 500 words.

I would greatly appreciate it if any of you would be willing to give him feedback.

Thanks.

Mississippi Personhood Amendment

Originally posted by gabrielleabelle at Mississippi Personhood Amendment
Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.


Originally posted by heeroluva at Another LJ Fail Post - LJ is now showing user locations when IP are logged (hello stalker support)
So LJ's done it again. Some of you might have noticed that when you post comments in communities or people post comments to your own journal that the location is showing.

According to this lj_releases post "Users who have enabled Comment IP logging will now also see the Country and City information of the commenter. This information is only visible to the journal owner, community owner/maintainers, or author of the entry if it is posted to a community with this feature enabled (only those who can currently see IP information). This feature is providing the publicly available geo-location associated with the IP address in the same way the "location" feature on our Update page currently functions."

I don't know about most people, but I find this more than a little creepy. I personally don't want to see where other people are, or have other people see where I am. It makes me hesitant to makes comments now because I don't know who has this turned on or not.

This is not the same thing as the "location" feature when a person makes a post. That is 100% voluntary. This is not. This is not cool. There is no way to opt out or protect yourself from it. You can turn it off in your journal, but that doesn't do anything for other journals/comms that have it turned on.

There is a difference between taking an IP address and manually entering it into a site that will spit out a location for you, and having it automatically done without asking.

The way it was before wasn't broken, and I can't imagine that people actually asked for it, so why mess with it? How about you change it back LJ?

So spread the word, create support tickets, and tell LiveJournal just how much you don't like this change.


Why did no one ever tell me about Stargate Atlantis?! Seriously?  I cannot imagine loving a show more than this. The eye candy and slash potential alone....jeez. Wow. I'm in love.
