Some colleagues of mine in radio astronomy could use your help. Below is the message they've asked to be sent around to introduce their kickstarter campaign:

Dear Friends and Colleagues

We are seeking your support in a crowd funding campaign to save the Mopra radio telescope from closure.  Mopra is a front line research facility.  It is making new map of our Galaxy.  A map that reveals the clouds of interstellar molecules that lie along southern Milky Way, the sites where new stars are being born.

But Mopra is due to be closed at the end of this year, the result of budget cuts.  Team Mopra are mounting a campaign to save the telescope, to keep alive its research program, to support a community of scientists and to train up the next generation of students.  

We need your help to do so.  We have launched a Kickstarter Crowd Funding program to save the telescope.  If you would like to help us please go to  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/astrocate/teammopra-save-a-telescope-and-map-the-milky-way for more details.

You may also like to follow Team Mopra through our blog at mopra.org, on Facebook at TeamMopra or on Twitter at @TeamMopra.

Thank-you very much.

Team Mopra 
Catherine Braiding is raising funds for #TeamMopra - Save the Mopra Telescope & Map the Milky Way on Kickstarter! Come and join us on a voyage of interstellar exploration as we chart the least known part of the Milky Way – its Delta Quadrant.

Cultural gender segregation drives sexism. Gendering of toys introduces stereotypes that are difficult to undo later. 
Lego boy toys have all the fun, pointed out an exasperated seven-year-old in a letter to the company this week. Isn't it time manufacturers acted on children's growing displeasure at gender-stereotyped toys?
