Vote and encourage everyone you know to vote for Open International by Friday – this is a challenge we need to win for Adja Penda Ba.
WTOP is running a contest and our organization along with other organizations are in the contest. We need your help to win the $10,000 top prize by having the most likes. Please go to the link below to vote for Open International and send this to your friends and people you know.

We need your help to win – Though, Open International is a small, unknown organization, it is making a huge difference in the lives of so many in rural Senegal; we can even go further with your help in this contest that is until Friday, April 25th .

K-Fai Steele started to get concerned about riding her bike without a helmet as she heard more stories about head injuries. However, the thought of having the typical helmet just seemed like a downer. Luckily she stumbled across our LED Helmet tutorial that fit her fashion needs.
I feel like when you put a helmet on, you lose the cool factor, but with this helmet, I get a lot of shouts from people when I’m riding.
K-Fai is no stranger to technology, as she heads up a program with the Philadelphia Library called Maker Jawn — an initiative which is turning teens into makers at local library branches. So, needless to say, she is comfortable with a soldering iron and programming. In fact, the helmet is another example project she can show off and everyone loves LEDs. She feels the helmet, which uses a FLORA microcontroller and a NeoPixel strip, is still a work in progress.
I didn’t use the GPS module like in the tutorial, but I did add an accelerometer. I’m interested in finding out whether I can affect the lights with how fast I’m going.
She hasn’t done the coding yet for the accelerometer, but it is in the works. In the meantime, she is famous for being the rainbow bright rider on the streets of Philly. Our thoughts — why leave the LED fun just for the helmet? Why not get to work on bike bling with our LED Handlebar tutorial. Biking never looked so good, and it is preventative medicine for crashes. So, light up the night.

When you do this the first time, it looks like a simple oversight - left-overs from some debugging perhaps. But when you "fix" it by hiding it, it's very clearly deliberate.
Netgear, Cisco, quick question please? What exactly does it take to actually care about your customers instead of actively trying to screw them?
