Hi guys. Long time no update.

As many of you may know, I'm in the middle of completing my Masters in Global Affairs at NYU. Since March, I've been interning with International Peace Park Expeditions (IPPE)as their Communication Fellow.

IPPE a non-profit organization that promotes environmental peacebuilding through experiential learning. They create accredited academic expeditions with partner Universities, in close collaboration with their local partner organizations.

This semester, I will be to travel to the South Korean DMZ and Hiroshima, Japan to work on IPPE's newest expedition: The Ethnology of Environmental Peacebuilding in South Korea and Japan. Since this is an unpaid internship, I need to raise funds to cover my field work expenses.

I ask you to consider donating to my project. So far, I have raised 6%  toward my goal.

For my peacebuilding project, I will travel to the DMZ and Hiroshima Peace Park to create a communication strategy for marketing the expedition, and located the resources necessary for IPPE to successfully promote their new academic expedition.

My goal this summer is to create a promotional package directed at university students so that they may take part in this expedition, and learn what actions they can take toward improving the environment.

Once IPPE has marketed the DMZ and Hiroshima Peace Park Expedition to their partner universities, and the students have completed the trip, the students can become involved in environmental peacebuilding.

Through the experiential learning experience, the students’ and all the stakeholders’ perspectives change as they gain a new awareness towards environmentally sustainable, conflict sensitive, and culturally aware peacebuilding on all levels, starting at the local level.

In turn, through their peacebuilding actions to have environmentally sustainable and conflict sensitive programming protect the environment, they will become closer to meeting the be supporting the United Nations Sustainable Developmental Goals and the Paris Accord starting on a micro-level in their communities, with room to develop programs on the regional, national, and international levels.

If you have any questions about my project or feel that you can contribute in alternative ways, please contact me.

Much thanks.

-Sep

Seriously. WHAT THE FLYING FUCK WORLD.

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

Note: All the information presented in this post is from the Education Under Fire (EUF) website (link below).

Education Under Fire: EUF is a campaign developed to address the Iranian government’s denial of the right to education for ideological and religious reasons. In order to raise awareness and shine a light on the importance of defending Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (a guarantee of education as an inalienable right of every human being), a documentary by the same title has been created.

Drive to 25: You can make a difference in less than three minutes by taking the initial action called for in the open letter. Become one of 25,000 activists and urge Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and other Iranian officials to end their policies of discrimination.

EUF main page || Drive to 25: take action (sign a letter). It takes less than 1 minuts || Go to an event (it's free, and open to all) 



Education Under Fire Trailer (3 min) from Education Under Fire on Vimeo.

Education Under Fire is produced by Single Arrow Productions and co-sponsored by Amnesty International. The 30-minute documentary profiles the growth, struggle, and inspiring spirit of the Baha´i Institute for Higher Education. Baha´is in Iran have been subjected to systematic persecution, including arrests, torture, and execution simply for refusing to recant their beliefs. They are also prohibited from going to college (and blocked from many professions).

I was gonna update this with much happier stuff, but for the past week I've just been so enraged with LJ's asshattery that I've had it to here.

In case you didn't know, on 12/12 they first announced sneakily on the Russian journal of LJ's design guy that with new changes being implemented tomorrow, there will be no more subject lines in comments and that this change was "non-negotiable" (good round-up and translation here). I'm sure you all realize that this will basically make fandom and RP communities unusable. LJ's staff, however, doesn't give a shit. At least 18 pages of 100% negative feedback didn't sway them.

They've backpedaled some and will make keeping comment subject lines optional in some S2 styles, but the default (that 99% of communities are running right now) will decidedly be subject-less! Not to mention that their new and frankly, fucking ugly design will take forever to load and make the site a pain to use on mobile browsers.

And oh, it looks like they might be taking away the drop-down menu to select icons as well, so you'll have to load all your icons as pictures to select them. Lovely. (I will beta-test tonight to see if this is actually true.)

Really, I don't know why I'm surprised. LJ is always fucking with the parts of the site that actually work and breaking them, so this is just another instance of that. Because seriously, who are subject lines hurting by just being there? (And no, it can't be a matter of server strain, considering the new "graphic" interface will definitely be using up more resources - so much fun when there's DDoS attacks!)
As far as I know, they've never once listened to their customers, so those thousands of comments already posted probably won't do shit. I've left a message expressing my concerns about the new comment pages here anyway; so if you want to do that too, go for it! If anything, it helps with the rage. ;)

FYI: Dreamwidth is feeling Christmasy has reacted to LJ's bullshit and has open account creation (no invite codes needed) for the rest of the week. Might be a good idea to get your back-up or new home, whatever the case may be, up and running now.
