This is where I will be organizing and keeping information and resources about organizations, movements, and campaigns that aim to help earth, nature, and peoples. I suppose there cannot be too many worthy causes or ever enough done to help earth, nature, and people. So here I am opening this lens to keep track of and share old favorites or new finds. I will post links, pictures, and articles about a wide, diverse range of creative earth, nature, and people helping campaigns, movements, and organizations. This lens will cut across many category and topic boundaries, from preserving the rain forests, to saving endangered species, ...

One of the greatest indicators of whether or not I end up being a long time user of certain piece of software is PERSISTENCE.  Is this piece of software accessible everywhere I want to be? These are the places I spend my time, and these are the places I need to access my apps Example 1: Evernote They’ve got a web app, an iphone app, a blackberry app, a bookmarklet to clip content from the browser (firefox & safari), and desktop apps for mac and windows.  They are covered from almost every angle, and for those moments in between I can still send in notes via email.

Panera Co. to open more pay-what-you-wish eateries
CLAYTON, Mo. — As the first crowd of customers filed into Panera Co.'s nonprofit restaurant here, only the honor system kept them from taking all the food they wanted for free. Ronald Shaich, Panera's chairman, admitted as he watched them line up that he had no idea if his experiment would work. The idea for Panera's first nonprofit restaurant was to open an eatery where people paid what they could. The richer could pay full price — or extra. The poorer could get a cheap or even free meal. A month later, the verdict is in: It turns out people are basically good. Panera, which operates 1,400 ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
PEOPLE v. JAMES
In these appeals from defendant's entry of a no contest plea and the trial court's subsequent revocation of his probation, defendant claims that the probation conditions previously imposed upon him pursuant to a plea bargain are invalid. [ 1 ] We conclude that as part of his plea defendant knowingly, voluntarily, and expressly waived his right to seek review of the probation conditions, and therefore dismiss the appeals. Defendant was charged in a sequence of separate cases, which were consolidated before he entered his plea. The offenses with which defendant was charged occurred during a series of incidents associated ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

We are an HIV medical research nonprofit that seeks and identifies promising HIV therapies that are not of interest to pharmaceutical comapianies (we can do this because we are driven by mission, not by markets). We currently employee just under 20 people, in a Macintosh technology envrionment. Because we want donor dollars to serve our mission, we have neglected our technology infrastructure, but could update the entire workplace with Emacs and two servers for under $20,000. We have located several foundations and operations that fund technology for operations. Most are for PC environments. Our minimimal needs are for one ...

Contact management and email blasting are done by just about every nonprofit to some extent or another. On the low end, many still just use Excel or Outlook to manage contacts, and something like Constant Contact to send email blasts. Some larger nonprofits I know use Raiser's Edge to manage their contacts and when the time comes to do an email blast, they export an excel list out to Constant Contact (note that Raiser's Edge is the "main" contact management interface; lists in Constant Contact are treated ...
