GTD isn't new, but it's still a great way to get organized. Let's go back to the basics:
Getting Things Done, or GTD, is a system for getting organized and staying productive. It may seem complicated on the outside, but the end goal is to spend less time doing the things you have to do so you have more time for the things you want to do. Let's break it down and see how you can apply a simplified version to your life.

AISD to Host Free City-wide Electronics Recycling Event April 26

The Austin Independent School District will host a free, city wide
electronics recycling event on Saturday, April 26 from 7 a.m. to 6
p.m. in the parking lot at Austin High School at 1715 W Cesar Chavez
Street.

Consumers are encouraged to bring their used electronics to the event
for recycling; accepted items are listed below. The event is being
coordinated by ARC, a technology partner of Austin ISD, and
Fone4Schools, an organization that helps local schools raise money by
converting donated electronics into funds for student programs.

Senior Procurement Specialist Anita Anderson is enthusiastic about the program.

"This is a really great opportunity to accomplish two things: you can
get rid of the electronics that you don't want any more in a
responsible way, and you can help the kids in our schools get the
tools they need to succeed," Anderson said.

The Fone4Schools program will donate a portion of the proceeds from
recycling the donated electronics to the Austin ISD to support
technology initiatives benefiting the schools in its service area.

Fone4Schools is run by Strategic Mobile Group, LLC of Austin Texas and
is a small, minority-owned business that provides logistics and asset
recovery services to hundreds of schools, federal, state and local
government agencies as well as corporate organizations nationwide.

The company was founded in 2011 to provide schools with advanced
fundraising capabilities that help the environment and students.
Fone4Schools follows the strictest environmental and security
standards for donated electronics, as well as a "no-landfill" policy.
ARC partners with Fone4Schools and Strategic Mobile Group to provide
new technology solutions and services, including mobile devices and
computers, for Austin ISD teachers and students.

For more information about Austin ISD or the Community Recycling Event
please contact Anita Anderson at 512-414-9800, or visit the website at
www.austinisd.org .

Items Accepted, working or not, at Community Recycling Day on April 26, 2014:
- Cell Phones or Smartphones (i.e. Android, Blackberry or Apple)
- Tablets (i.e. iPads, Kindles or Android Tablets)
- Home Electronics, Stereo Equipment and Cable Boxes

"In Texas and around the nation, the worst abuses that we see are in the context of private prisons. And the big reason is that they don't have the same level of transparency that state-run organizations have -- until this ruling anyway." -- Brian McGiverin is an attorney with the Texas Civil Rights Project.
Texas Matters: A court has ruled that privately-run jails are, in effect, governmental bodies when it comes to Texas open records law, so what will be

Story
Introduction
to be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best day and night to make you like everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight and never stop fighting. -e.e. cummings

It must be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new ones. - Niccolò Machiavelli

Native Austinite. Well educated.. Always learning more in my own way. Strong-willed and opinionated. Avid reader. Love to laugh..

I believe in making a difference. I believe in making myself a better person.. in my own eyes, not the eyes of society.

Mainstream society, and the social mores that it professes to hold as "normal," "average," etc. is all hogwash as far as I'm concerned.

I am very much a "trail blazer" and I live my life that way.

If you want to know more.. ask me :)

***************************************************
I want my life to have more highs than lows, cherishing fond memories with warmth, learning from less pleasant memories, and making a positive difference in the world.. preferably on and with the next generation. So long as I know I made a difference, my name doesn't have to be "attached" to whatever it is I do.

Whether I believe in the Afterlife is irrelevant, what matters is what I do now.

After all, I have but one life to give this world. (Okay, so I took Nathan Hale's quote out of context)

Although it's been a few years since I've been there, I was never disappointed. Liked their specials and their pepperoni pizza always a favorite! Pepperoni seems to have kick to taste that no other pizza biz has.

I love the culture-inspired paintings! Takes me back to my vacations in the Yucatan Peninsula & Mexico City DF!! Oaxacan cafe is aromatic, bold yet strangely relaxing too. Great food and reasonable prices.

I often wondered if it's part of (belongs with) other Austin Pizza locations .. is soo much better, infinite possibilities, not your "pizza joint" atmosphere either .. I even <3 the building! Need to make time to go there again, if only wasn't so far away.

Tacos definitely a thumbs down.. names more exciting than flavor. Far as I'm concerned, their fare went up in flames.
