With the recent news of a vacancy on the Supreme Court of the United States, we wanted to remind folks that Chief Justice John Roberts has epilepsy. He suffered two seizures; one in 1993 and another in 2008. Roberts' seizures have been called benign idiopathic (unknown cause). The Chief Justice is a perfect example in proving that people with epilepsy truly can be and do anything when they put their mind to it. #epilepsy #supremecourt #seizures

Everyone loves this newest feature in our studio. It shows how our glazes look on our various clay bodies. It took months of planning and testing and making of glaze tiles to finally pull it together. Special thanks to David @davidknight9639, Sharlene @ylanapottery, Andrew @af_pottery, Sarah @sarahtoday and others who made it happen. The top row shows glazes on porcelain tiles, second on Laguna dark brown stoneware, third on Highwater Phoenix, and the bottom on Highwater Orangestone. More glazes plus labels are in the works and will be added soon. . . #sowhichglazeshouldichoose

"The challenge was to spread the word: Open Science can’t happen without open source hardware. The unconference sessions were the natural habitat for the open hardware discussion, in which, together with Thomas Mboa, we shared the experience of the GOSH movement, the collaborative building of the roadmap and invited everyone to join into the forum." - Great blog post from Julieta Arancio reflecting on her experience at OpenCon 2017! http://openhardware.science/2017/12/11/opencon-2017-reflections-from-a-gosher/

"About two years ago I was the keynote speaker at a World AIDS Day observance at Duke, and this fellow came up to me and said, “I want to thank you.” He was an African-American man who had been in the closet until his church had put on a World AIDS Day. Once people were responding to the religious requisite of caring for people who are sick and dying, he felt like his congregation had come far enough that he came out to this pastor."

@DigitalDaya 2017-11-11

A successful social media campaign uses one or more social media channels to: - Promote a product/service - Build brand awareness - Create a sense of community It unites people around a common interest or experience, and ideally, creates a trend.

The Young Disaster Resilience Leadership (YDRL Uganda) project in Uganda began as a 3-month (23 March–30 July 2017) pilot funded by UNICEF and implemented by The Elliott School of International Affairs Institute for Disaster and Fragility Resilience field team in Uganda. The team worked with local partners in three districts that host refugees—Hoima, Isingiro and Yumbe to design an evidence-based strategic approach to adolescent- and youth-led adaptive solutions to build community resilience. The target group was adolescents 10–19 years old in six select primary and lower secondary schools, two in each district. The main goal was to systematically strengthen the capacity of young people in refugee-hosting districts in Uganda to formulate practical adaptive solutions to reduce disaster risk in their school communities and to build a network of young disaster resilience leaders. To achieve this goal, the primary objectives were to 1) equip adolescents/youth with skills to develop scalable adaptive solutions and commit to tangible actions that can improve community resilience and 2) develop mechanisms that promote sustainable learning and resource sharing among adolescents/youth and open dialogue between residents and community leaders on environmental hazards that threaten their communities. Deborah Bryant Elzie is a member of The George Washington University’s Institute for Disaster and Fragility Resilience program team within the Elliot School of International Affairs. She serves as Program Director for the Disaster Resilience Leadership global program as well as the Young Disaster Resilience Leadership program. Find out more about the yDRL from their blog: http://ydrl.org/blog/

YPFP AND VETERANS IN GLOBAL LEADERSHIP TO ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP AT 10TH ANNUAL AFFAIRS OF STATE GALA

More than a third of American homes, some 44 million residences, are located in the “wildland-urban interface,” where they risk burning in wildfires. Many of those homes are inhabited by people who have no idea they face a wildfire threat. The fuel surrounding their homes is largely the vegetation they planted there. Yet when a wind-driven fire pushes “ember attacks” into neighborhoods deep inside a community, the fires they ignite don’t discriminate between woodlands and landscaping. And the thousands of new homes that are being built each year deeper into flammable forests and brushlands are at even greater risk. Learn more in this The New York Times article by Michael Kodas.

What is a Temporary Protected Status (TPS)?: Although over 300,000 persons from 10 countries benefit from this humanitarian relief established in the 1990s, the program is now facing TERMINATION, stripping our communities of legal status and tearing livelihoods. DC is home to many TPS holders, and while DC City Council introduced a Resolution this week in support of the program, there remains MUCH MORE real action to be done. Check out this video by UndocuBlack Network, TPS Alliance / Alianza TPS National Day Laborer Organizing Network & Central American Resource Center (CARECEN-LA) where they break it all down. We have to urge our local legislators to pressure DHS for: 1. Extension of country protections and 2. A permanent solution. Will you help?
