Community, Memes, and Pressure: justinomora1 A day before Karla Estrada went public, I notified our Board of Directors about Ivan Ceja's transgressions and demanded his resignation. I did my due diligence to listen and talk to all the affected individuals (Karla, Denea, Yadira, etc) and gather as much evidence as possible. It's been a long and challenging process. Since Tuesday, I have been putting enormous internal pressure on Ivan Ceja (@ivncja, Executive Director) and Francisco Barragan (our Board Chairman) to cooperate with me and Rebecca Medina (our other board member) and take this seriously! Due to the complexity of the issue, I have been advised not to post on the UndocuMedia platform as this can be used agaisnt me (I hope y'all understand). Upon learning about Ivan's transgressions against Karla, I confronted Ivan and have exhausted all internal procedures to hold him accountable. I support and stand with Karla, Denea, Yadira, and any other person that might come out. I support their public calls for accountability and change. This is necessary Repost @JustinoMora1, co-founder of UndocuMedia: This is what transparency and accountability look like. This is a difficult and challenging process; however, it is needed in order to bring about justice, allow us to grow as individuals and as a community, hold people accountable, and create a stronger movement. . Please read the testimonies in this order: 👉🏽 Karla (@karla_estrada_222): bit.ly-KarlaStatement . 👉🏽 Denea (@creole_goddess94): bit.ly-DeneaStatement . 👉🏽 Yadira (@ywm_88): bit.ly-YadiraStatement . @UndocuMedia is bigger than me and Ivan Ceja. UndocuMedia is a philosophy and a large community of loving, caring, and passionate individuals. UndocuMedia is about YOU ALL! Thanks to our tens of thousands of dedicated followers, we have stopped people's deportations, assisted in natural disasters, advocated for immigration issues, etc. Rebecca Medina (our other Board Member) and I ask for your patience and support. We won't stay silent and stand with Karla, Denea, Yadira, and others. . Please let others know.

Energy, Memes, and Pressure: U.S. Bank Becomes First Major Bank to Stop Financing Pipeline Construction se EcoWatch.com- USBank has become the first major bank in the U.S. to formally exclude gas and oil pipelines from their project financing. This groundbreaking change to their Environmental Responsibility Policy was publicly announced at the annual shareholders meeting in Nashville in April. In addition to no longer providing "project financing for the construction of oil or natural gas pipelines," the bank has stated that relationships with their clients in the oil & gas industries will be subject to "enhanced due diligence processes." As recently as March 2017, U.S. Bank has renewed commitments with Energy Transfer Partners, the company constructing the DakotaAccessPipeline, & with Enbridge Energy, whose pipelines operate within Minnesota. However, advocates are hopeful that the bank's newly released policy will limit other kinds of financing relationships with these industries. This move comes after ongoing pressure on U.S. Bank locally from MN350 & from the Minnesotans for a Fair Economy coalition, & on banks nationally from indigenous groups including Honor the Earth, the Indigenous Environmental Network & the Dakota Access resistance movement. Beginning in 2015, a regional partnership of climate, labor & indigenousrights advocates has urged that U.S. Bank divest from fossil fuels, in particular from Enbridge Energy, & move its financing into the clean energy economy. Local actions have included letter-writing, account closures & social media campaigns. In response, in May 2016 the bank made changes to their Environmental Policy restricting lending to coal. A national & international campaign pressuring banks to divest has been highly successful, pulling nearly $4.5 billion from financiers, & a newly launched coalition effort called Mazaska Talks has expanded this effort. "Confronting the climate crisis requires boldness, urgency & innovation," said Dr. Emily Swanson, a member of MN350. "While there is more to be done, we are hopeful U.S. Bank can continue to act as an industry leader & as an ally for creating a more sustainable economy." NoDAPL ™@divestla

Poop, Roomba, and Rugs: love it with a caveat November 4, 201 By Previously my wife and l read the post about someone's Roomba trailing through dog poop. We laughed and didn't think another thing about it Let me tell you how yesterday went. While at a training for work l receive a text message from my 10 year daughter Dad, please call me the floors are dead.' I assumed that auto correct had gotten involved and was trying to figure out what it had corrected from. Also in the back of my mind l assumed our 14 year old lab Dalmatian mix had passed away, only to be found by our daughter. attempted to call my daughter with no answer and then called my wife. My wife had received the same text and had talked to our daughter Our lab is fine, our daughter was not. It appears that during our absence our 85 pound Band-dog mastiff had a bit of stomach distress. This in its self isn't a big deal as pet owner we understand that periodically "poop happens." What caused our very articulate 10 year daughter to become stymied was the fact that Rudy (our Roomba's name at 1415 hours started his tour of duty Roomba's name) at 1415 hours started his tour of duty Our daughter entered the house at around 1430. Rudy had been diligently cleaning our house for 15 minutes give or take. It seems that he had made a bee line towards the piles of dog stomach distress and then gleefully in a poop filled rampage "cleaned" the house. don't know if dog excrement somehow is a super boost to Roombas (much like speed boosts on video games or if Rudy somewhere deep in his programing has a code built in that basically states "if dog mess is found, crank all operations up to 11 But it appears that in a very small bit of time he had somehow traversed into the master bedroom, the hall way, kitchen and of course the living room As any Roomba owner knows they travel in spiral patterns, they bump into walls and furniture and they stop and spin looking for dust or hair. This built in patterning is truly effective in the elimination of pet hair, dust and small bits of debris. This patterning also seems to mimic the path a three year old hopped up on red bull and given an open full paint can, would have. If you keep the afore mentioned three year old in mind and substitute poop for paint that is what we are looking at. Roombas also have a small propeller like, brush attachment. This attachment sticks out in front of the Roomba. Its' original purpose appears to be reaching into corners where the round Roomba cannot reach. Unfortunately, this attachment also seems to have the ability to violate the known laws of physics by flinging poop in all directions, angles around corners, inside locked cabinets, and oddly straight up in the air to hit a 12 foot ceiling. So give that three year old a fan and let them swing it around as much as possible So back to our daughter, as she entered the house she was struck by a smell that could only be described as Cerebos's backyard after being fed Taco Bell and shock, she looked down, up and around and observed the poopy Pollock patterning on the walls. She immediately went further into the house, (where she got the strength of will will never know to find her phone to text her parents Before she could reach her phone, a poop flinging Rudy turned the corner and the chase was on. I don't know what happen in the time between our daughter being spotted by the poop flinging Rudy and the text message because she refuses to talk about it. She was able to stop the rampage by disabling Rudy and moving him to the backyard. After which she sent the text. I do have a theory on why she sent the "floors are dead" text. She being a normal 10 year girl has yet to witness anything close to the atrocity she saw. Given that she could only process the thought "the floors are dead" In hopes we would call and she could articulate the carnage Back to my wife, I didn't get all the above information until after the event. I was talking to my wife when she initially entered the house. All heard was the garage door open about 20 seconds of silence, a very soft "oh God" and then her telling me "it's bad, I'll call you back.' In her shock, she forgot to hang up the phone and for the next 5 or so minutes l could hear snippets of "How did it get there? Why, Oh man we might need to buy a rug, we just put in new floors, Oh God arrived home at around 1830 hours. Our house smelt of beach and cleaning fluid. My wife and daughter both freshly showered, both sitting down, both having only what can be described as a 1000 yard stare.

As it stands right now some of his parts are soaking in a solution of bleach and water. I am hoping through the next week l will be able to thoroughly clean his outsides and insides So if I was to rate the Roomba l would highly suggest it others. We love the little guy, he has cleaned our floors without compliant, been a source of entertainment, and reduces our work load with our pets do have to add one caveat. If you own pets only allow the Roomba to work while you are there.

Erin Andrews, Memes, and Nfl: Erin Andrews Reveals She Was Diagnosed with Cancer Caballeralert Erin Andrews Reveals She Was Diagnosed with Cancer – blogged by @LoveRubyWoo ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ErinAndrews, one of the most successful women in sports broadcasting, recently revealed something that only the people closest to her knew about – that she had been battling cancer throughout a good portion of this NFL season. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to SportsIllustrated, the 38-year-old Fox NFL sideline reporter was diagnosed with cervical cancer last September after a routine check-up. Luckily, the cancer was detected early enough, but the doctors told her that she needed to have surgery immediately in order to remove it from her body. Though she had just received terrible news, Andrews went on and worked the Giants-Redskins game the next day as if nothing had happened. The following week, she took a short break from her other job, co-hosting Dancing with the Stars, to go back home to Los Angeles and have the surgery done. She underwent the procedure on a Tuesday and by Sunday of that week, she was already back reporting on the sidelines of the Packers-Cowboys game. Though she eventually told her colleagues about her health issues, she decided against going public with the news. Instead, she kept on working diligently while dealing silently with the cancer, and she did not miss a single NFL game throughout the course of the season. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After removing the cancer, which required two surgeries in total, doctors informed Andrews that she did not need to go through radiation or chemotherapy, and she has remained cancer-free since. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Next Sunday, as Erin Andrews covers SuperBowlLI with the same energy and enthusiasm that she always displays, we will watch her with a newfound respect. After all that she has endured in the past year, not just with cancer but also with the very public and painful trial against her stalker, she is still standing and stronger than ever. As she told her fiancé, former NHL player Jarret Stoll, right before her surgery, “You’d play through any injury, do whatever it takes to get back out there. That’s going to be me.”
