Petition to Municipality of Nicosia
Keep Palouriotissa Square Skateboard / BMX Friendly
Ελληνικά παρακάτω κείμενο The Municipality of Nicosia have announced a new project to renovate and improve the Palouriotissa Square. The aim of the project is the creation of a functional square for relaxation and entertainment of residents, improving the green, improving road safety around the square and simultaneously the increase of parking spaces. However these plans will see drastic changes to the squares layout and architecture making a big part of the best spot in Cyprus useless to Skateboarders, Roller Skaters, BMX riders and scooters. The Palouriotissa Square is a big part of the skateboard & BMX culture in Cyprus and is a unique location that offers a safe place for young people to socialise and participate in active sports such as skateboarding, Roller Skating, Cycling and scooter. Palouriotissa Square is not only a heaven for local youths, but also attracts professional athletes from around the world, who have visited the square for skating and BMX activities. Please sign this petition to ensure that Palouriotissa Square remains a unique and safe place for young people to socialise and participate in active sports like skateboarding, Roller Skating, BMX and Scooter. Do not let The Municipality of Nicosia destroy a place that we all love and has become a big part of our culture, lifestyle and history. Ο δήμος Λευκωσίας ανακοίνωσε ένα καινούριο έργο για ανακαίνιση και αναβάθμιση της Πλατείας Παλουριώτισσας. Ο στόχος του είναι η δημιουργία μιας λειτουργικής Πλατείας για την ξεκούραση και ψυχαγωγία των κατοίκων, με την ανάπτυξη πρασίνου, την ανάπτυξη της οδικής ασφάλειας γύρω από την πλατεία και ταυτόχρονα αύξηση των χώρων στάθμευσης. Παρόλ’αυτα τα σχέδια θα αλλάξουν δραστικά τη μορφή του χώρου και την αρχιτεκτονική, μετατρέποντας ένα από τα καλύτερα μέρη για πατίνια στην Κύπρο ως άχρηστο για τους skateboarders, roller skaters, bmx riders and scooters. Η Πλατεία Παλουριώτισσας αποτελεί ένα μεγάλο μέρος της κουλτούρας του skateboard & bmx στην Κύπρο και είναι ένα μοναδικό μέρος που προσφέρει ασφάλεια στους νέους για κοινωνικοποίηση και συμμετοχή σε ενεργά αθλήματα όπως πατίνι, ποδηλασία, σκούτερ. Δεν είναι μόνο παράδεισος για την τοπική νεολαία, αλλά επίσης ελκύει επαγγελματίες αθλητές από όλο τον κόσμο, οι οποίοι επισκέφτηκαν την Πλατεία γι’αυτές τις ασχολίες. Παρακαλώ υπογράψτε την αίτηση για να εξασφαλιστεί ότι ο χώρος της Πλατείας θα παραμείνει μοναδικός και ασφαλές για τους νέους, ώστε να μαζεύονται και να συμμετέχουν σ’αυτά τα ενεργά αθλήματα. Μην αφήσετε το δήμο Λευκωσίας να καταστρέψει ένα μέρος που όλοι αγαπούμε και αποτελεί τεράστιο κομμάτι της κουλτούρας, τρόπου ζωής και ιστορίας μας.

BRING BACK TIX _ ROBLOX
~ROBLOX TIX DEBATE Hello everyone, My name is Andrew and today I'm going to talking about TIX.Now I know it's been almost 2 years since they've been removed, but I feel that if we can stillspeakup about them. Then maybe we can reach out.A lot of people have forgotten about them, but I want to find a way to bring them backinto the community to make new players feel as if they are actually welcome.I posted a forum on ROBLOX, and everyone that seems to have replied are all of which are BC,but nobody takes into consideration the members of ROBLOX who can't afford BC, and are stuck asthe normal looking players. ROBLOX used to be a world where EVERYONE was able to come and join as a community,and hangout as a community. But now some of us feel as if ROBLOX just want's to work on it for the money. PRO's of TIX ~Keep newer people interested so that they will eventually want to buy BC~Gives people who can't afford BC a chance to earn currency and feel welcome into the community.~Give developers/shirt makers a chance to earn from members of the ROBLOX community who cannot afford BC, or R$~Bring back players who've left due to the loss of TIX~Bring back the ROBLOX trade system (Converts TIX to ROBUX and vise versa). Because believe it or not, the ROBLOX trade system was sort ofeducational to some people because it gave people that economic affiliation to the real world. ~DEBATE PART 2 ROBLOX stated that the currency system i.e Robux and Tix were confusing. But ironically a lot of us players who've been playing since 08+learned the difference between the two quite simply (I was 9). I see 6 year olds who know the difference between the 2, and can easily identify them. So there debate henceforth within that topic is illogical and deserves justification. If ROBLOX really wants to make some money, bring back TIX. Make TIX purchasable while rising the price of ROBUX.Make the prices of TIX sort of low (Not too low). Have items on the catalog that can be purchased using TIX so thatthe NON-BC members can feel somewhat equal to BC members. Make the TIX non-tradeable accross accounts so that peoplecan't cheat the system. I think ROBLOX should create a new system for members of the ROBLOX community to actually be able to advertise their gamesDue to the removal of TIX a lot of really great games that deserve recognition are not being pointed out.I think they should create a more efficient system for ROBLOX instead of just the banners on the sides and top.Because to be completely honest... who actually pays attention to those.

Our diverse and abundant forests are being destroyed by land-grabbing and ever increasing demand from the timber trade, profiting a small elite, while forest-dependent communities suffer. I see the suffering of forest communities on a daily basis as I go about my work investigating and campaigning against illegal logging. To save Cambodia's natural heritage we must take urgent action! The Cambodian government recently announced that over 1 million hectares of natural forest will now be protected, including the embattled Prey Lang forest, one of the largest remaining lowland evergreen forests in South East Asia. However, these must not be 'paper parks', like so many of Cambodia's existing protected areas that have been decimated by logging, mining and plantation development. Right now huge swathes of Prey Lang forest are being cut down, especially in the Think Biotech concession – an area of forest is being cleared without consideration of the communities that depend on forest products and lands and who have sacred sites within the forest. CHRTF is calling on the Ministry of Environment and the office of Prime Minister Hun Sen to save Cambodia's forests that so many people depend on. To do so the Cambodian government must close all sawmills in the newly established protected forests, and in Cambodia's existing protected areas. We also call to revoke Economic Land Concession licenses in protected forests, and close sawmills in ELCs and in social land concessions (SLCs). These sawmills are the main driver of forest degradation and are used to launder illegal timber from protected forests. Join us to call on the Cambodian government to shut down the sawmills, and save Cambodia's forests!

Create the 1st Mile of the Merritt Parkway Trail - a 38-Mile Multi-use Trail and Greenway
We support the creation of a 38-mile multi-use public trail and greenway stretching from Greenwich to Stratford, CT. The trail would run through the woods within the 150-foot wide right-of-way owned by the Connecticut Department of Transportation on the south side (northbound) of the beautiful and iconic Merritt Parkway. It would be a safe and wheelchair accessible paved trail for recreation and transportation to be enjoyed by families, runners, walkers, cyclists, cross country skiers, dog walkers, and nature lovers. KEY BENEFITS OF THE TRAIL: creates a safe east-west route for recreation and transportation through congested southwestern CT abates pollution and noise by replacing automobile trips creates a wheelchair accessible trail for exercise for runners, walkers, cyclists, dog walkers, rollerbladers, and cross country skiers enables users to enjoy the beauty of CT and the Merritt Parkway’s historic bridges and landscape creates tourist destinations and sources of economic development closes the gap in an essential piece of the 3,000-mile, Maine to Florida, East Coast Greenway creates a popular recreational amenity and builds community encourages bicycling and walking (alternative modes of transportation) between residential, commercial and recreational areas, employment centers, shopping, a university and schools, all located along the length of the Merritt Parkway ECONOMIC BENEFITS: Studies of other trails (see link below) have shown that the tourist revenue over time exceeds the cost of construction the trail. The studies also show that the property values of homes increase if they are located closer to the trail which is viewed as a special amenity. Furthermore, homes for sale located closer to trails have been shown to sell more rapidly than those further away. Surveyed realtor organizations in many locations around the country profess that they actively use nearby trails to promote property sales. An example in Connecticut is that owners of homes along the Farmington Valley Trail have in fact asked that barriers that were initially installed, be taken down so that they can more easily enjoy the trail. We understand that the payback is long term, but the intangible benefits are substantial and immediate. HEALTH BENEFITS: It is well known that the rates of obesity and diabetes are growing dramatically in this country. Our increasingly sedentary lifestyle contributes to this epidemic. What is most disturbing is that these issues are showing up increasingly in our children. Having a safe off-road place for families to ride so children can learn to enjoy experiences that can keep them active for their whole lives can help reverse this trend. In fact, a 2005 study concludes that every $1 investment in trails for physical activity led to $3 in direct medical benefits. TRANSPORTATION BENEFITS: It is also well documented that one of the significant inhibitors to the future growth of the State of Connecticut is our clogged roadways. There are a significant number of corporate employers along the Merritt Parkway in towns such as Stamford, Norwalk and Fairfield. Over time, as our car dependent culture changes, more people will find it advantageous to travel via bicycle to work. This will be further enhanced by connections to MetroNorth train stations at Talmadge Hill in New Canaan and Merritt/7 in Norwalk and connects to bike lanes such as the Norwalk River Valley Trail, the Pequonnock River Trail in Bridgeport and proposed bike lanes on High Ridge Road in Stamford. Existing commuter parking lots also provide parking spaces for those driving to the trail. Total usage should be substantial in this dense area of the state as evidenced by the fact that the Farmington Valley Trail in northern Connecticut has more than 300 thousand users per year. QUALITY OF LIFE: In 1987, President Reagan’s Commission on American Outdoors recommended the establishment of a national "network of greenways to provide people with access to open spaces close to where they live, and to link together the rural and urban open space in the American landscape." The Merritt Parkway Trail, which is part of the more extensive East Coast Greenway, will bring this vision alive for us all to enjoy. The establishment of the trail calls for bringing back plants and trees native to Connecticut replacing the invasive species in the right of way. It will be built in a way that compliments the historic nature of the Merritt Parkway. When Trail systems have been formally studied using user surveys, crime data, and reports from nearby property owners, trails have been universally shown to add to the quality of life for local citizens. We see this trail as the spine which will connect a network of trails throughout the towns of Fairfield County for the benefit of all who want to live, work and play here. Link to Referenced Studies: http://bit.ly/TrailStudies We ask that you support the construction of the Merritt Parkway Trail with Stamford as the 1st mile. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Petition to Michael Lewis, Lena Gonzalez, Robert Garcia
PETITION TO PATROL , SIGN FOR SAFETY
Bomb threats, Gang tagging, Vandalism, Car theft, Drug deals, Drug use, Homeless All in less than a 5 block radius. All 7 of these items have occurred in this neighborhood in the last 30 days. A neighborhood next to the police headquarters. And sadly, and outrageously, this has become the norm. We have thousands of residents living in this area, and we, 535 Magnolia, are of part of them. We cannot become complacent and just be glad it wasn't us this time when someone's car gets stolen (even LBPD is not immune at their headquarters), a bomb is left in our car, or our property is tagged--repeatedly. If we do not Sign or petition to let authorities know more has to be done, we cannot be mad when these things happen again. We cannot be mad when our property value diminishes because people sell as quickly as they buy after being a victim and perhaps constant victim of crimes. We cannot be mad when people stop investing in the upkeep of the properties out of hopelessness. We cannot be mad when guests share they don't feel comfortable coming to our neighborhood. We cannot be mad, when WE don't feel comfortable coming to our neighborhood. We CAN only be mad, when we have asked for help and nothing is done. PETITION TO PATROL more, SIGN FOR SAFETY now. Put your signature on here to show the below a united force that wants change. We, the Association at 535 Magnolia, would like Mayor Garcia, the City of Long Beach, Lena Gonzalez, and the Long Beach Police Department South Patrol to increase the amount of police presence in our neighborhood increase the frequency of police patrol These 2 things are known statistically to deter crime. LBPD can't be everywhere all the time, but if we are rebuilding LB, and trying to draw people to live here and generate revenue, and downtown is being transformed and touted as the place to be, then we need to make it a safe place people would like to move to, and more importantly, a place they'd like to stay. People are more likely to stay if it's safe; and certainly more likely to leave if it's not. PETITION TO PATROL more, SIGN FOR SAFETY now. We hope you decide to sign and be like us, the squeaky wheel that hopefully will get the oil, Mr. Garcia!
Petition to the residents of wallkill, wallkill school board, wallkill town board
Change the name of wallkill high school to honor Dennis O'Mara
Early this year, we were saddened to learn that life long resident, and supporter of the school Dennis O'Mara has passed away in a horrible accident. Mr. O'Mara has been a mainstay at every school function for my entire life, as well as many of us in the community. While he had to struggle with a physical handicap, he never let it break his spirit, and his kindness was appreciated by all. This is why I am starting this petition to officially change the name of the Wallkill High School, to the Dennis O'Mara High School in Wallkill.

This issue has hit a core nerve of the citizens of the Piedmont Triad area and our identity. I still plan to attend the January 23, 2018 PTI Board Authority and will express my views and the thousands that have spoken. It is not my interest to be a part of the final name that others will recommend, but if asked I will clearly give my opinion as a native of the Piedmont Triad. https://flyfrompti.com/statement-from-piedmont-triad-airport-authority-regarding-airport-name/ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Important: At the end of signing this petition please add a comment, news or personal story to others to why you signed this petition and why STOPPING this name change is important to our community! Send your non-FaceBook friends to StandByPTI.com Piedmont Triad Airport Authority Board of Directors has voted unanimously on December 19th to change the name of the "Piedmont Triad International Airport" (PTI) to "Central North Carolina International Airport". There has been a major outpouring on social media that there is nothing wrong with the current name and that the new name was made with haste and not considering the thoughts of the community. Airport authority members, appointed by area governments, say they’ve been discussing this change for months. But quietly, without public input. So public reaction, not surprisingly, is ... unenthusiastic. Piedmont Triad International Airport is a public facility governed by a regional authority. Its members are appointed by Guilford and Forsyth county commissioners and Greensboro, High Point and Winston-Salem city councils. Putting just one city, Greensboro, in the name of the airport would leave out the other entities. Including them all would create a name that’s too long. This dilemma led to the Piedmont Triad International Airport compromise 30 years ago. The Piedmont Triad is made of up three cities, Winston-Salem, Greensboro and High Point, North Carolina. Piedmont Triad International Airport had its start in 1927 when the Tri-City Airport Commission selected 112 acres near the community of Friendship for an airport, and petitioned to become a stop along the congressionally authorized airmail route from New York to New Orleans. Learn more at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piedmont_Triad_International_Airport There are more reasons not to change this name that I can not list all of them but will list a few: Central North Carolina International Airport does not represent the airport or it's geographic location Some have suggested using "Greensboro International Airport" as many cities have done The name is not broken, why change it? It was stated that Chris Chung head of EDPNC (Economic Development Partnership of NC) to the Airport Authority Board said "While all of us in NC are used to the term Piedmont Triad, I’ll admit I’d never heard the name before moving here.". A respected local Greensboro native said this to what Chris Chung said "Chris knows as much about Marketing as you do Brain Surgery. All I have heard is laughter and unbelief on the name change. It could well cost us ridership. Makes as much sense as what comes out of Congress!" Hundred of thousands of dollars to change names because some group wanted to change something for the sake of change. It won't bring another carrier in to serve newer markets or reduce the cost of using this airport. From H Scott Hoffmann, writer News & Record: "Sitting in Greensboro, we’d like to see our city’s name associated with our city’s airport. People know cities, some better than others. Greensboro is the third-largest city in the country’s ninth-largest state. Its airport also ranks third in size, behind two that carry the names of specific cities: Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham. RDU is located between Raleigh and Durham, so sharing those names makes sense." "Our airport, by whatever name, is poised for growth. Passenger traffic was up this year, with fares on many flights lower than what are available in Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham. Also, travel hassles are fewer than at larger airports. Honda Aircraft and Haeco Americas are just two companies that have successful operations here, and an aviation-related industrial site is ready for development — in Greensboro." "There probably wasn’t a pressing need to rename the airport, and there’s unlikely to be public consensus that the best new name was selected." It is the goal of this petition is to have the Piedmont Triad Airport Authority Board of Directors STOP this name change immediately by seeing the outpouring on names on this petition that this was not a well thought idea.
Petition to The Los Alamos Public Schools Board
Save the Writing on the Walls.
The interior walls of Los Alamos High School's Duane Smith Auditorium are covered with the signatures of past students and those who have performed on stage. These walls are unable to be seen from the audience and do not effect performances held in the establishment. There are plans to cover these walls this summer. We want to show our school board that people want to preserve these walls that hold so much history, that we cherish this tradition. Every year seniors gather to make their mark, and this last year was more emotional than most. This is because we face the prospect of our names being lost for the sake of aesthetic appearance. Tears were shed for the years that will be wiped away. Do not let our tradition end and forsake the past, allowing it to be forgotten.
