Mar 17 – Rally to Defend Climate

Donald Trump just announced his latest assault on climate: his plan to rollback the federal rules that limit auto emissions.

The Trump administration is on a path to drive up pollution, asthma, and temperatures so that fossil fuel and automobile executives can get rich at our expense.

Through it all, our Governor remains silent.

On Friday, we’ll come together to call on Governor Charlie Baker to denounce Trump’s destructive energy policies and put Massachusetts back on track to meet our own legal requirements to cut carbon pollution.

Speakers will be announced shortly. AND–our very own giant Governor Baker puppet will answer questions about Trump’s latest moves on climate!

Co-sponsored by 350 Massachusetts, Mass Power Forward, Green Justice Coalition, Neighbor to Neighbor, West Roxbury Saves Energy, Massachusetts Chapter of the Sierra Club, Mothers Out Front, Climate Action Network, & more!

Sat vigil against war on Syria and Yemen

Next Saturday, March 11, the Park Street vigil on the Boston Common, from 1 to 2pm, will be a speak-out to stop the wars on Syria & Yemen. This is in response to International Hands Off Syria Coalition’s call for international days of action against war and Islamophobia during the week of March 11-19.

The Pentagon is considering sending more U.S. ground forces to Syria. To justify this military escalation, the demonization of the Syrian Government has been intensified though a new wave of misleading propaganda. The most recent salvo is a sensational yet unfounded report from Amnesty International, which has been broadcast by media outlets around the world.

In Yemen, the US has long been supporting the Saudi war, which is not only a war against the Houthi movement, but an atrocious war of hunger and mayhem against the population and economy of Yemen

All of this aggression must end. Join the Committee for Peace and Human Rights and the Hands off Syria Coalition to raise our voices against this violence.

The most effective method to pick the correct Amazon Fire tablet for you

At the point when a great many people hear the word tablet, they very quickly think about the iPad. Mac has commanded the tablet space, however Amazon’s line of Fire tablets give the iPad a keep running for its cash.

There are a couple of various models of Fire tablet, every one with some particular advantages and disadvantages.

Regardless of whether you’re searching for a greater or littler screen, or esteem pixel thickness over stereo speakers, this guide separates it.

Fire tablets are the best values in the business, and for the vast majority they’re an incredible tablet alternative.

7″ Fire Tablet:

The 7-inch amazon fire tablet is Amazon’s base model, and keeping in mind that it’s less capable than its more seasoned kin, it shares some regular elements with them.

It runs the same working framework (Fire OS 5 “Bellini”), has front-and back confronting cameras, and access to Amazon’s huge library of substance, be it Kindle books or Prime Video spilling. The Amazon application store was additionally quite hearty when I utilized it a month ago, with numerous well known applications like Netflix and Angry Birds accessible.

It just has one speaker, however, so don’t hope to kick out the jams without associating it to a Bluetooth speaker. In that same vein, this current tablet’s not as much as HD screen implies it won’t be the best to watch TV or motion pictures, yet at 7 inches, it’s greater than your telephone.

When we checked on this tablet a year ago, we said it was the new standard for a $50 tablet, that is still the case. In the event that you need to calmly peruse the web, stream Netflix, or play recreations on a flight, the standard Fire tablet is the ideal arrangement.

Fire HD 6:

In case despite everything you’re searching for a decent arrangement on a tablet, yet need one that is somewhat more skilled, the Fire HD 6 is a decent trade off.

For an extra $20, you’re getting a higher-determination screen and the most pixel-thick tablet in Amazon’s whole line. That implies content will be more fresh, and the UI by and large will look cleaner on the HD 6 than any of Amazon’s different tablets. It’s one inch shorter than the base Kindle Fire, which means in case you’re shaking a substantial telephone like the Galaxy S7 Edge or iPhone 6S Plus, having a gadget with a screen this size may be repetitive.

The Fire HD 6 has a similar camera framework with the standard Fire tablet, yet has Dolby sound implicit. It still just has one speaker, yet the sound quality ought to be better. It likewise gets an additional hour of battery life, taking it up to a respectable 8 hours. As a result of its pixel-thick screen and little size, the Fire HD 6 is perfect for individuals who wouldn’t fret perusing on a littler tablet screen. It’s additionally a decent decision for the individuals who need a little tablet that is under $100 with a HD screen.

Fire HD 8:

The Fire HD 8 may have a similar screen determination as the Fire HD 6, yet its bigger screen size and better internals make it a more competent tablet.

With a higher-determination front-and back-confronting camera, the Fire HD 8 is a superior decision on the off chance that you was a tablet-using picture taker. That additionally implies your discussions over Skype, or some other video-informing administration, will likewise be more clean. The Fire HD 8 additionally underpins the remote AC standard, as of now the speediest type of WiFi out there. At last, alongside the greater screen measure comes duel stereo speakers, making this tablet substantially more mixed media well disposed.

This is the tablet to purchase in case you’re searching for a major however not-immense travel tablet. It’s the iPad Mini’s size, however at not as much as a large portion of the cost; and far and away superior, you can extend its inner stockpiling with a MicroSD card.

Fire HD 10:

The highest point of Amazon’s tablet line, the Fire HD10, is about the bigger screen. I tried this tablet out a couple of months back and, even as a staunch iPad beau, I left away inspired. It’s quick, light, has truly great battery life, and the brushed metal alternative feels similarly as premium as an iPad.

I dinged this tablet a bit for its screen determination, which I wish was higher, however close to that, there’s not a ton I could discover amiss with it. It has a similar camera framework, WiFi hindrance, and stereo speakers as the HD 8. Truly, the main contrast is the screen estimate.

The Fire 10 HD is a superb tablet decision in the event that you need a “full estimated” tablet that can do an entire hell of a great deal, with a spending cost. It’s the tablet I prescribe to everybody who doesn’t care for iOS, since this is an extraordinary bit of equipment.
