This would be pretty great especially if other states start to follow suit.

This is how easy it is to purchase a gun in the local WalMart in Phoenix, Arizona. All you need for purchase is a proper ID. Guns are out on display right next to the gaming section and there are no restrictions on ammo. Now imagine if I had a really tough circumstance, had some bad thoughts and didn't have the tools to deal with it in the right away. Getting a gun is a more affordable and accesible solution than getting any kind of help. The first thing we need is to not make it this easy to buy a gun and then we can deal with the system that is failing these people.

Finally! Google has made it possible to provide a platform for open licensed courses on open sourced technology. What does that mean? Not only is the course for free but anyone can take, share  and use the content. A true example of democratizing educational information!

California passes the nation's FIRST bill to create an open-source digital library for college textbooks

The 1052 bill passed the California Senate with 32-3, according to the state legislator’s website. The 1053 companion bill passed by the same margin.

They now need Governor Brown to sign the bill.

I had a great experience at Newpark. I am usually scared of anything to do with teeth care and the office made me feel right at home and comfortable. The staff was incredibly friendly and Dr. Nima was really understanding and helpful to ease my nerves while letting me know what my options were. A+ for service and quality of care!

Great home cooked meals. On a cold night it is food that feeds the soul. When it is warm a lot of people don't know they have seating outside in a beautiful garden in the back.
