New Magic Trackpad: not so new :)

simonos:

Apple introduced a new “Magic Trackpad” today, a very nice trackpad to be used instead of a mouse. But I remember using it back in 1997 with my 20th Anniversary Macintosh. See this picture?

Clean drinking water is a basic human right. The bills I have signed today will help ensure that every Californian has access to clean and safe sources of water.
California Gov. Jerry Brown in a statement. Brown signed seven bills into law Friday seeking to improve access to clean drinking water in California, particularly for residents in rural and disadvantaged communities. (via californiawatch)

I grew up solidly middle class, with parents who were not wealthy, but could certainly afford the American Dream of a nice little house, an annual vacation (we drove), and the occasional extra like ballet lessons for their kids.  My husband grew up on welfare, and didn’t even know what the SATs were until his guidance counselor told him that he was smart and he should take them.  We have worked very hard in our lives, and had a great deal of luck, and we now live a very comfortable life.
This dress cost more than you could earn working 40 hours at minimum wage.  I bought it for my 2 year old, although she never got around to wearing it.
She’s 5 now, and I explained that for every hundred cookies, 1 person has 40 of them, and 99 people have to share all of the others.  She goes to a private Montessori school, so she understood (they do lots of abacus play).  Even she knows how unfair that is.
We are the 1% and we have more than we know what to do with.  I support higher taxes for social services and safety nets, and for the infrastructure that makes a society strong and vibrant.  I do not support higher taxes for endless wars and corporate welfare.
We stand with the 99%.

Some of the world’s biggest, most socially responsible stars came together last night to celebrate Bill Clinton’s 65th birthday and ten years since the former president completed his second term at the White House and embarked on a path of philanthropy.

The star-studded concert, called “A Decade of Difference: Celebrating Ten Years of the William J. Clinton Foundation,” was held Saturday night at the iconic Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Broadcast live on Yahoo!, it sought to raise funds and awareness about the foundation’s global initiatives in health, underdeveloped economies, the environment, and children. All in all, Clinton’s work has reached some 300 million people in more than 180 countries, according to the foundation (nearly 4,000 people benefitting from HIV/AIDS treatments, more than 26,000 micro-entrepreneurs, farmers, and small business owners improving their livelihoods and communities, and over 2.2 million tons of greenhouse gases getting cut or abated in major cities around the world).
