However, since I am a fan of 28 Days Later and Sunshine, which were both directed by Danny Boyle (Oscar winner for Slumdog Millionaire) and written by Alex Garland I was intrigued when I ...

UPDATE: <i>The Expanse</i> In Premiering On SyFy In December 2015!
I found other rabid fans of James S.A. Corey 's books at Reddit and from there discovered that there's a second version of the trailer for the upcoming SyFy television adaptation and someone has grabbed   a bunch of screen captures from it . Check it out! T...

In the school board election, the low turnout gave special interests more influence in the results than had voters turned out in decent numbers. California Charter Schools Association Advocates' PACs spent over $2.2 million, primarily to support charter school administrator Ref Rodriguez.

Story
Introduction
Ron Buckmire is most well-known for creating the Queer Resources Directory, the first comprehensive directory of LGBT and HIV/AIDS information on the Internet, in 1991, before the World Wide Web was invented. The QRD was one of several named plaintiffs in a successful Supreme Court challenge to the 1996 Communications Decency Act that was unanimously ruled unconstitutional in ACLU et al. v. Reno (521 U.S. 844, 1997). In 2006, he co-founded the Barbara Jordan/Bayard Rustin Coalition, the premiere Black LGBT political organization in Los Angeles. He currently serves as Board President for the Jordan/Rustin Coalition and Board Vice-President of the Center for Health Justice. He is also member of the national board of directors of Immigration Equality. He has previously served on the Board of Directors of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission, Equality California and the PlanetOut Corporation. During the 2008 campaign to defeat Proposition 8, the ballot measure to prevent same-sex couples access to civil marriage in California, he was co-chair of the Los Angeles County No On 8 Committee. In his day job, Ron has been on the faculty of Occidental College, Barack Obama’s first alma mater, since 1994 and is currently an Associate Professor and Chair of the Mathematics Department. He lives in North East Los Angeles with his husband Dean Elzinga and their two dogs Leenah and Dezmond. He blogs daily at MadProfessah.com
