Have a doodle for Albania's 100 Year Anniversary of Independence.

Albania is a small country, but with a big history. The country was suppressed by The Ottoman Empire for 500 years! Yes, 5 centuries. Finally, in November 28th, 1912, it gained its independence. It would mean a lot for every single Albanian around the world if one of the world's biggest companies on the Internet recognized our independence, too. Especially because it is a 100 year anniversary. ---------------------------------------------

Google: que la Mezquita-Catedral de Córdoba recupere su nombre

El turista que quiera llegar a la Mezquita-Catedral de Córdoba para visitarla y que utilice Google Maps para ello no la encontrará. Y es que en esta aplicación, el nombre del monumento ha sido sustituido recientemente por el de “Catedral de Córdoba”. Igualmente, la localización de la Catedral de Córdoba en el mapa redirige a la web catedraldecordoba.es, un dominio que es propiedad del Cabildo Catedralicio y que asegura que se trata de la web oficial del monumento. En esta web, nuevamente, la palabra Mezquita brilla por su ausencia. Desde 2006, cuando la Iglesia inmatriculó el monumento, hemos asistido a un intento de apropiación jurídica, económica y simbólica de la Mezquita-Catedral de Córdoba por parte del Obispado de Córdoba. Parte de esta estrategia consiste en retirar el término “Mezquita” para que figure únicamente la palabra “Catedral”, borrando de un plumazo una parte fundamental de su historia. Google no puede ser cómplice de esta estrategia de apropiación por parte de la diócesis de Córdoba. Por eso pedimos que se restituya en Google Maps el nombre de Mezquita-Catedral, aprobado por el pleno del Ayuntamiento de Córdoba en 1994 y que define con exactitud su esencia y realidad arquitectónica. Firma esta petición y ayúdanos a conseguirlo.

Tell YOUTUBE to Leave FUNnel Vision Alone & Restore DOH MUCH FUN

The youtubers on the channel youtube.com/funnelvision are having videos removed from the site due to pressure from advertisers to stop advertising on inappropriate kids videos, however FUNnel Vision and Doh Much Fun especially has No Inappropriate Kids videos.  The content ranges from many things but there is never any cursing, there is no bullying of children and most importantly there is no masquerading of kids content happening which is what Youtube has been targeting.  Youtube has cast too wide of a net saying they will remove videos if they feel inappropriate comments have been left on them by child predators.  Funnel Vision cannot control who leaves comments on their videos but are being the ones persecuted for such action instead of going after the commenters themselves. Youtube is targeting a wide array of videos based on certain keywords like waterpark, mermaid, pool, fashion show because they think kids may be inappropriate clothed or exploited which sounds great, but they aren't reviewing every video, they are just completely taking them down saying they are innocent based on metadata.  Judging a book by its cover! They are also not reviewing our appeals, it's like appeals have been turned off.  There are other terms which may seem like a no brainer to remove from the kids sector like videos containing "poop" or "scary" but again, if we play a major brand nationally released board game like Doggie Doo or Poopy Head or play with Playdoh Poo Dough Prank, that's inappropriate too? What if we make DIY Slime that's brown and joke around, that's also inappropriate? No, they've gone too far.  Also if we use the word scary, it's not Rated R scary, it's just kid age appropriate spooky but because we use the word they aren't allowing us to remove that word, instead whole vid comes down. They have not answered or worked with FUNnel Vision or Doh Much Fun to understand what the problem is with their videos.  They've been creating videos since 2013 with no community guidelines broken and all of a sudden some advertisers come along and say we don't want to be apart of disturbing kids videos which was in reference to the take down of recent Toy Freaks channel and other channels where kids costumed characters were doing adult and inappropriate things, so all Youtube is doing is removing any kids video / channel just to show force.  If you feel FUNnel Vision and Doh Much Fun do not deserve this treatment, please sign the petition.

Google should add Urdu language to their text-to-speach engine on android

the world biggest and most popular technology giant "google INC" should add Urdu language to their text to speach engine on their own "android" operating system. Urdu is one of the biggest language of the world. it consists of phrases of multiple languages. it is native from Pakistan and India. 65 million (80% in India (2007), and 94 million in Pakistan (1999) Urdu speakers exists. but unfortunately, there is not any high quality text-to-speach on any platform to read Urdu text. a large number of people are visually impaired, and depends on their mobiles and computers to fullfill their job and studies related activity. but absence of Urdu TTS, it make them unable to interact and perform well where Urdu came. in one line, a very big population is not able to read their national, or native language due to inavailability of supportive text-to-speach engine. there fore, google is currently extending their android TTS by adding world  languages, even they have added hindi recently. so we are requesting them to please pay some atention towards another biggest language of the world, "Urdu" also. it will be very very much helpful for visually impaired community to read prepare their needs in case of their native language easily.

Google Fiber, 1 Gbps di banda, in Italia!

Condividete questa petizione, Grazie! Cos'è Google Fiber? E' un servizio di banda larga offerto da Google, che offre un collegamento in fibra ottica a 1Gbps bidirezionali. Un sogno per noi Italiani, no? Con Google Fiber, per esempio, un file da 1 GB si scariberebbe/caricherebbe in soli 10 secondi! Il prezzo? In America, l'abbonamento per la connessione super veloce di casa Google parte da 70 dollari mensili, il più caro è di 120 dollari che comprende, 1TB su Google Drive, un Nexus 7, un TV Box per i canali televisivi, abbinato a un dispositivo per registrare e un router firmato Google. Vi chiedo, dunque, di firmare questa petizione se siete interessati ad avere una connessione veloce come questa, visto che qui, in Italia, internet non è neanche lontanamente paragonabile a connessioni del genere! Non è sicuro che firmando, Fiber arrivi in Italia, ma, magari potrebbe suscitare l'interesse del colosso di Google Italia o di altre aziende specializzate nel settore. Per contattarmi scrivetemi a questo indirizzo: fiberpetitionit@gmail.com (Ho bisogno di qualcuno che mi aiuti a pubblicizzare questa petizione, in cambio potrei mettere un link a vostra scelta qui, nella descrizione, grazie del supporto) Ho aperto questa pagina facebook per supportare ulteriormente la petizione!

Bring Back the old Google Finance!

We were warned that the "Portfolio" feature of Google Finance was going away. However, Google never said that they were literally gutting the entire site.  "As part of this revamped experience, we’re retiring a few features of the original Google Finance, including the portfolio, the ability to download your portfolio, and historical tables." The new Google Finance doesn't compare to the old at all! User Junjie Liang put it best when said on the Product Forums https://productforums.google.com/forum/?hl=en#!category-topic/websearch/uf8q-AaPiyQ : "I found I was updated to the new product this morning and it was enormously disappointing. All the ratios, scan function, trends function, sector summary etc. were gone!!! They were core functions!!!!!" The charts were also a key feature and now barely manipulable. There is now no dividend display. No Pre-Market or after market historical quotes. No adjustments to the line style. (such as candlestick or OHLC) Alot of people also loved the "Recent Quotes" feature. Historical news based on the chosen time period on the chart. Other useful charting tools such as moving averages, Bollinger Bands.... Gone. All gone. This is not just the "Portfolio" feature. This is literally a deprecation of the whole site.   Please don't eliminate this great product, Google!

Tech Companies: Don’t Help the Kremlin Block Telegram in Russia!

On 16 April 2018 the Russian Internet censorship agency RosKomNadzor moved to block Telegram—to punish the messenger app for its refusal to hand over to the FSB (the KGB’s successor agency) master Telegram decryption keys. Telegram uses various resiliency features to maintain accessibility, but Russian users are increasingly reporting problems with Telegram functionality. According to media reports, RosKomNadzor has now requested that the Telegram app be removed from the Google and Apple smartphone app stores for Russian users. This would prevent new users from installing Telegram and existing ones from keeping it updated (which in itself raises security concerns). Effectively, RosKomNadzor is trying to use international tech companies’ infrastructure to facilitate domestic censorship and to force other internet companies to surrender their users’ private information to law enforcement agencies which face no public oversight. Users may end up facing prosecution by the Russian government for any of many “thought crimes” ranging from criticizing the authorities to “LGBT propaganda.” Not only is it dangerous for freedom of speech and privacy, but compliance with such requests will encourage censors in Russia to ever more aggressively use this method to constrain citizens’ freedom of communication and access to information. Inevitably, inter alia Google’s own Hangouts/Allo and Apple’s FaceTime/iMessage will experience similar pressures in the near future. We call upon… core app store hosts (Google for Android, Apple for iOS) to take a principled stance and reject RosKomNadzor’s request to take down Telegram or otherwise facilitate its blocking, and major CDNs and cloud providers (Cloudflare, Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Aliyun) to resist RosKomNadzor requests to constrain access to Telegram (and other) back ends which provide essential functionality supporting freedom of access to information and communication. We must hold firm against government attempts to censor Internet access and encourage other companies to hold firm too. It is imperative that IT companies demonstratively adhere to “doing the right thing,” for which they will deservedly win praise from netizens worldwide for supporting freedom of communications and privacy.

Google do not change the names of Azerbaijani historical lands

To: The management of “Google” company  Dear company management!  As is known, it has been more than 20 years since the historical lands of Azerbaijan were occupied by Armenian armed forces. As a result of the military aggression of the armed forces of Armenia against our country,  20 percent of Azerbaijan - Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as the adjacent 7 regions (Agdam, Fizuli, Lachin, Gubadli, Jabrail, Zangilan and Kalbajar) was occupied, about one million our compatriots became refugees and internally displaced persons. One of the most tragic events of the twentieth century, committed during this period. Nagorno-Karabakh and 7 surrounding regions occupied by Armenia are an integral part of Azerbaijan's territory.  The UN Security Council had adopted resolutions Nos 822, 853, 874 and 884 in 1993 on soonest settlement of the conflict by peaceful means, the liberation of the occupied territories, on the return of refugees and internally displaced persons to their homes. However, Armenia does not comply with any of these resolutions.  There is information about approximately one million Azerbaijani refugees and internally displaced persons formed as a result of military aggression and occupation of  20 percent of the lands of Azerbaijan in 1988-1992 by the Armenian armed forces, measures to improve their social conditions and living conditions, current needs, etc.  Mr. Ilham Aliyev, the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan has repeatedly stated that we will restore our territorial integrity. The two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the US, are currently holding the peace negotiations.  During this time, the Geographical names of Azerbaijani territories occupied by Armenia were changed to Armenian place names by the invader Armenia and the so-called "Nagorno Karabakh Republic".  According to the investigations, it was determined that, overall 277 geographic place names of Azerbaijani (Turkish) origin were changed stage by stage and have been subjected to aggression. The Armenians carried out fraudulently the change of place names of Azerbaijani (Turkish) origin and they did it in different ways.  So that, the place names of Azerbaijani (Turkish) origin have been totally replaced with the armenian names by the invader country (- Aghdam city - Akna; Akn; Hakaku; Khojaly city– İvanyan, Aigestan; Gubadli city - Sanasar; Lachin city - Berdzor; Jabrail city – Jrakan etc.), they have kept Armenian spelling variant of some place names changed during the former Soviet Union (Jojavand city -Martuni; -Khankendi city. - Stepanakert.- Yukhari Yemishjan - Verin Sznek; Almali – Khindiristan; Daghyurd v.- Sarushen v., (Khojaly dis.). Aghbulag v., – Mismina v., (Jojavand dist.,) as a result of literal translation were changed (Aghbulag vil., – Aknakhbyur vil., (Jojavand dist.,); Nakhchivanli v.- Navsepavan v. (Khojaly d.,); Boyuk Taghlar v. – Mets Taghlar v. (Jojavand dist.,); Chaykend v. – Getashen v. (Dashkesen dist) and sometimes they have distorted the historical place names by adding or reducing only a letter (- Gurzallar v. – Gurzalar v; - Buzlug v.- Buzug v. (Goranboy dist); Vangli v.- Vank v. (Kalbajar dist) etc.”.) Unfortunately, during the investigations we came across some mistakes in Google maps prepared by your company. So that, the names of a number of historical Azerbaijani lands have been changed and distorted. At the same time, during the investigations, it was determined that some Azerbaijani territories that were not occupied, but their names were changed by Armenians insidiously, and their names are shown with those names during searching on your map (Barda-Partav, Zod ashirimi – Sotskiy Pereval, Qaradaghli - Varanda). It is contrary to all international conventions, decisions, and laws.  Dear company management!  Since Google is a worldwide known search engine, we consider it important to inform you about mistakes noticed on Google Maps. In particular, the mistakes are gross, and harm the interests of Azerbaijan.  We ask you to remove the distortion of the historical Azerbaijani territory names occupied by Armenia.
