 You can sign up for a weekly “act of resistance,” and pledge to follow through, at wall-of-us, another new effort to capitalize on the energy of the Women’s March.

Organizers are planning a Scientists’ March on Washington, DC, on April 22. More info can be found here.

The ACLU reportedly raised $24 million during the weekend following the announcement of Trump’s “Muslim Ban,” but there are dozens of local legal aid groups that will also need support as the resistance spreads. Rewire compiled a list of 24 of these smaller legal-aid organizations, with brief descriptions of each. Check it out here.

Concerned about the spread of fake news? It’s a difficult problem to tackle, but Eli Pariser, co-founder of Upworthy and author of The Filter Bubble, launched a humble spreadsheet to crowdsource ideas, and it has since “become a hive of collaborative activity, with hundreds of journalists and other contributors brainstorming strategies for pushing back against publishers that peddle falsehoods,” according to Fortune. The spreadsheet, titled “Design Solutions for Fake News,” is here.

You can also hit Breitbart News and other sites that peddle in bigotry and white nationalism in their pocketbooks by getting involved with a Twitter group called Sleeping Giants. Their strategy is simple: Make sure that corporations are aware of the kind of content that appears alongside their ads. This New York Times story offers more detail about the campaign.

Feeling overwhelmed by the rush of real news about the Trump regime? Matt Kiser, a tech writer by day, launched a side project chronicling “the daily shock and awe in Trump’s America.” The goal of whatthefuckjusthappenedtoday.com, according to the site’s “about” page, “is to capture the most important news in a digestible form.”

It may be a Hail Mary pass, but the organizers behind ImpeachTrumpNow, John Bonifaz, and Norman Solomon, are veteran progressive activists who lay out a compelling case at the link above.

Buycott Trump is trying to get people to vote with their dollars. Organizers have launched a new campaign on top of an existing app that allows you to scan barcodes and QVCs, and offers you information about the politics of the companies who make the products you see on store shelves. You can find links to download the app at the link above.

You can also enter your phone number at White House, Inc. or DialItUpNow.com, and be randomly connected to a Trump property somewhere in the world, where you can politely discuss the issues that matter to you—and in the process keep their lines tied up.

With Trump in the White House, and Republicans controlling all three branches of government, popular resistance has never been more important. It’s too soon to tell which of these groups will take off and succeed, but it’s not too early to throw yourself into one of these worthy efforts. And if we’ve overlooked a new effort that you think is important, let other readers know about it in the comments.

Why #centurylinkStinks and they don't care. I won't bore you with all the details, as they're nothing new. Same ole' problems which include 30-40% of the time the internet doesn't work, countless chat sessions, telephone calls and emails to tech support and customer service all adding up to no solutions provided. But here's the kicker, when I was on the horn today with their Loyalty Department (now that's a laugh in itself) I was relaying to the representative that last week I was told that I was to receive a $40 credit to my bill plus an adjustment of 30% for the past three months and that a technician would be scheduled to come to the house. (Neither happened.) After having to explain this three times (listening skills are not CL's strong points but why would one think that a communications company should know how to effectively communicate?) she tells me that she needs to check with tech support in order to validate my claim of loss of service. After much time on hold, said representative tells me that the tech dept sees no history of outage and no record of me reporting outages or asking for help. Well, ain't that cute? I saved every Chat session and email communication but the rep said that I was getting the amount of internet speed that I've been paying for to which I responded, "Yes, when it's working." Much silence on the rep's end while I probed why I should pay for a service that only works 70% of the time at best and here it is folks, ready? During one of the rep's silent periods I hear in the background someone, presumably a supervisor holler, "Come on! If it ain't a sale get them off the phone!" And that's Century Links' business model. 'If they ain't buyin' get them the fuck off the phone' or, as happened to me countless times, they just hang up. Well, as a friend of mine said many years ago when referring to another customer-less service company, "Just bend over, grab your ankles and take it."

Global Warming? What's that? No planet, no life. No discussion in tonight's and the first Presidential Debate about the most import issue facing humanity. It is affecting food crops and prices, world hunger, the refugee crisis, the rise in fear, hatred and ultimately war. Now that's deplorable.
