Dear Readers,

for the last couple of months I have been struggling with my stories. However, sadly my external drive has broken with the two stories in my drive. I am heartbroken by the loss of my drive but not just my stories but also family pictures.

I am in the process of trying to see if my data can be recovered from removable external. If not It will take a lot longer than expected.

I hope everyone understands.

Sincerely,

Saffron

In the U.S., we pride ourselves on having choices and making informed decisions. Under current FDA policy, we don't have that choice when it comes to genetically engineered (GE) ingredients in the foods we purchase and feed our families. But thanks to your tireless support, Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Congressman Peter DeFazio (D-OR) will introduce new Federal legislation next week that would require the labeling of all GE foods; the first labeling bill to be introduced in the Senate in over a decade!

Without mandatory labeling of GE foods, consumers are being left in the dark about the foods we are purchasing and feeding our families. Sixty-four countries have mandatory labeling policies for GE foods including South Korea, Japan, the United Kingdom, Brazil, China, South Africa, Australia, the European Union, and many others. The U.S. is one of the only developed countries in the world that doesn’t require labeling. Yet there is overwhelming public demand—consistently near 95%—for the labeling of GE foods.

Tell your Senators and Representative to Co-Sponsor the GE food labeling bill!

Friends --

I just got this email from Demand Progress, and I thought you should know about it: It highlights an upcoming Supreme Court case that will affect all of us, especially people who sell things online.

We've told you about the crazy Supreme Court case that could make it illegal for you to sell the things that you own.

Well, the court hearing is set for this Monday, October 29th -- and we need you to join us in a day of online activism.

If we lose this fight, practically anybody who wants to resell products they bought -- from Macbooks and iPhones to our clothing and textbooks -- will have to ask copyright holders for permission first. And they'll have the right to deny it!

The forces that lined up in support of SOPA -- Hollywood, the recording industry, and other huge corporations -- are urging the Court to rule against consumers.

sound the alarm. Please
So we're going to fight back -- just like during the SOPA fight -- by using our websites to click here to sign up to take part!


Remarkably few people have even heard about this case, and it's time for us to change that.

Win or lose at the Supreme Court, we expect to have a legislative fight about this issue on our hands by January, and we need to push people to contact their members of Congress before Big Business gets them to side against us.

So we've built a variety of ribbons and ball-and-chain icons that you can put on your site on Monday to help make sure the whole world knows about this horrendous case.

You can view them all here, and sign up to use your site for activism on Monday -- we really need your help.

Participation from a few hundred sites -- or even a few dozen -- is almost certain to get the media's attention as they cover the Supreme Court hearing.

Everybody is welcome to join in the day of action, but your friends who sell things online will probably be especially interested.

Whether they use Craigslist, Ebay, Etsy, or just a personal site or a blog, they'll want to know that their right to keep selling could be in grave jeopardy.

Will you forward them this email and/or use these links to make sure they know about this lawsuit?

More than 2,500 sites have already signed up to take part in our day of action as the Supreme Court hears that case that will decide if you have the right to resell the things you own.
Ebay, Craiglist, and even the old-fashioned garage sale are under threat.

Thanks for your continuing help!

-Demand Progress

Youvebeenowned.com:

On Monday October 29th, the U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether you have the right to sell your stuff on eBay. Do you really own the smartphone or computer you’re using to read this? If you sold your books, would you be breaking the law? A federal court in New York says you would be, even if you legally paid for and bought them.

It's unbelievable, but trademark and copyright holders are trying to use a legal loophole to take away your right to sell things that you own. The mainstream media is starting to catch on, with the Wall Street Journal just running an article headlined, "YOUR RIGHT TO RESELL YOUR OWN STUFF IS IN PERIL". Please add your name at right to fight back.

Public interest advocates are taking the case all the way to the Supreme Court, and Demand Progress is joining up with a coalition of groups -- including many of those that came together to kill SOPA -- to support the rights of ordinary Internet users and everyday consumers.

Once again, big entertainment company lobbyists are fighting us in the courts to ensure their profits are given higher priority than consumer rights. But this time the MPAA and RIAA have the Obama administration on their side -- they've all filed legal briefs asking the Supreme Court to restrict our right to resell the things we own..

We only have a few weeks to make our voices heard before the Supreme Court makes a lasting ruling. We are working to defend a long-standing principle known as the "First-Sale Doctrine." This common-sense rule gives us the right to sell most property we own, but big businesses have been trying to chip away at out our rights in the courts. If the Supreme Court supports the lower court’s decision, we won't really “own” anything if any part of it was made in a different country. And practically anything you own -- from your iPod to your house -- could have been made abroad, in whole or in part.

If we lose this fight, practically anybody who wants to resell products they bought -- from Macbooks and iPhones to our clothing and textbooks -- will have to ask copyright holders for permission first. And they'll have the right to deny it!

It's bad for so many reasons: It'll undermine Craigslist and Ebay, hurt the environment, increase incentives for manufacturers to move jobs off-shore, and effectively ban the traditional American yard sale. For more info please check out Marvin Ammori's article about the lawsuit.

It's us versus THEM again!

Hollywood attorneys are trying to use the courts to circumvent Congress and implement a backdoor SOPA/PIPA scheme.

Fight Back: YOUR FILES ON Google, Dropbox, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, YouTube, Flickr, etc. and even your emails are in jeopardy.


We need to make sure the judge understands that his decision will affect millions of people.

Demand Progress is fighting back in the courts and standing up for Internet users. We are taking on the United States and the MPAA. Please click here to support our legal brief -- the court will be hearing the case THIS WEEK

BACKGROUND: One day after the Internet staged a massive blackout to protest Congress's Internet censorship legislation (SOPA/PIPA), the United States responded by seizing millions of ordinary user files hosted on the popular website Megaupload.com.

With an aim of shutting down Megaupload and other Cloud-based hosting services (like Dropbox, YouTube or even your email provider), the government is trying to claim website operators should face decades in prison for the misdeeds of some of their users.

But while they pursue trumped up criminal charges against the companies' founders, they are shutting down dozens of websites, and leaving ordinary Internet users without any way of retrieving their files.

Please click here to sign on as a supporter of our legal brief: The judge will be hearing the case THIS WEEK, and we need to make sure he understands that his ruling affects millions of us.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak called the case against Megaupload a "threat to innovation". Wozniak likened the Megaupload site to a highway and those who shared pirated movies and songs to speeding motorists.

"You don't just shut down the whole street because somebody is speeding," he said.

Numerous laws on the books already give copyright holders plenty of avenues to stop actual infringement, but that's not enough to satisfy Hollywood's lawyers and lobbyists.

And get this: The prosecutor in the case, Neil MacBride, previously served as the Anti-Piracy Vice President of the Business Software Alliance, where he represented the intellectual property interests of countless multinational corporations.

Now Hollywood's lobbyists, represented by the Motion Picture Association of America, want him to make it nearly impossible for ordinary Internet users to get their property back.

Please click here to sign on to our legal brief, and make sure the courts understand that millions of Internet users will be impacted by the judge's decision.

And please use these links or e-mail, tweet, facebook, tumblr this to urge your friends to get involved right away -- we need as many people as possible to sign on to the brief so that the judge understands the broad impacts of his decision.

For the last month I have been in London visiting my cousins for personal reasons. I have been writing whenever I can. I am sorry the delay has been so long. I am close to finishing my new chapter and I am hoping I will send it to my beta soon.

P.S. Shi mypetconcubine thanks for the vegan cupcake in a jar and the other treats from Hawaii. It was an wonderful surprise when I got it in the mail. I have been a bit homesick so this perked me back up. I will see you in two days when I get back to Honolulu.

Thanks a bunch for the AO3 invite. I was thinking I'd have to wait until Feb. 2013. Thanks again!

If you are a U.S. Citizen, have not registered to vote hurry and register, you can register on-line. It is fast and easy. Just fill out, print, sign and mail it.

If you are a first time applicant, photocopy your state photo ID [any government document that shows your name and address] and mail it with your application to your local Office of Elections and that's it. You will be a registered voter.

Please I beg you to inform yourself about the candidates you are voting for, learn everything you can about them. Find and compare the 2012 candidates by key issues such as healthcare, taxes, jobs, gay marriage, immigration, energy, foreign policy, censorship, internet censorship, internet freedom and other important issues.

Do not be suckered in by negative ads and useless mailers that just end up in a landfill.

I know allot of people who say I am voting for someone because of their religion or believes in this. That is not the point.

The point is to find the right person you believe is right to fill the position of office as a whole. Not just for one issue but --- for everything, which person you think is best to fill the position for President, your state’s Governor, Mayor, House Representative, Senator and so forth. Learn about what they stand for.

This is a big deal because you will be stuck with this person until the next election.

If you do not know their policies and their key issues --- look it up! Research your Governor, State Representative, Senator and Mayor Etc. If you do not agree with their policies and what they stand for than find out who may be running against them and go with the person you think should fill the office.

Start your research with the candidates’ official sites; do not just go by friends, family and opponent’s views of the candidate find out for yourself.

Twitter and facebook does not count!

A great start to find information about the candidates are at unbiased, non-partisan, independent sites such as FindTheData.org, ProCon.org, OnTheIssues.org, TechPresident.com, Politics1.com, PoliticalInformation.com, VoteSmart.org and RockTheVote.com

Also, watch debates, speeches and so on. This is sometimes where they can sway your vote. Just spend time researching on the internet. I know some people may say it is a waste of time --- but it is not.

A prime example is 2004’s race I was for Democrat John Kerry all the way. I researched and thought he was the person I was voting for until he made the ill-fated speech where he said he favored for the draft to be reinstated and drastic cutbacks to Social Security and Medicare. Those things made me not vote at all that election. In my opinion, both candidates were not right to fill the office.

Why should you care to vote? Because you should always care about elections, especially on a local level, yes, the presidential race is very important but so is your local election as well. For the love of that is holy, voting on your local measures and races that is important. This is where your voice truly matters.

In my opinion it does not matter what political party you are apart of --- just get out there and vote. Here's a kick in the ass for those who don't vote, if you do not vote you cannot complain. You did nothing to help. So stop whining, bitching and let your vote count.

REGISTER & VOTE!

This week Friday & Saturday --- on June 8-10, we ask for show solidarity among all fandoms in a boycott of fanfiction.net by banning the use of the site for 48hrs to express our outrage. We are asking that you sign out of the site and not log back in until Sunday. Let's see what happens if they lose the avid readers and writers.

I am in complete support of the boycott.

And what will the boycott do? It will decrease user traffic which is how FFnet makes their money. It will also upset their advertisers.

Below are a few ways to participate and everyone should really consider it. After all, it is the writers and readers who make up the site.

Facebook Shout Out -

This is a shout out to all fandom readers and authors of Fanfiction.net. In lieu of the massive pulling of fics by the site, a call for solidarity among all fandoms in a boycott banning the use of the site for 48hrs to express our outrage and the seeking of change in the ToS has begun.
We ask you to join in our efforts & perhaps we may gain some momentum.

Facebook event -

http://forkspixie.tumblr.com/post/24341586580/calling-all-fandoms

Twitter Shout Out -

FFnet pulled about 2000 fics in a few days. Let's give em a taste... Stop using FFN for 48 hrs, starting Friday June 8, 2012 at 00:00:00 PDT (Pacific US Time) to Sunday June 10, 2012 at 00:00:00 PDT.

We're already hundreds doing it, gathering in FB groups and different forums. Let's make it thousands, shall we? Just 48 hrs... even the most serious case of fic addict can do this, right?

http://twitter.com/#!/search/%23TeamNoFFN48hrs

Use this converter to know your times -

If you are still unsure just remember Friday and Saturday is the boycott! You can use the site again Sunday evening.

Readers, you can download anything before that time, read completed FF, or even go and check for updates at other sites.

Authors can post any updates after this time and are free to update their stories in any other site.
