Misfeasance

NOUN: Improper, negligent, or unlawful execution of an essentially lawful act, or a transgression or trespass such as misuse of authority.

The Real Story Behind Facebook Moderation and Your Petty Reports

Maximum respect. Next time you go to report something think to yourself - is it really that bad? To the point that I would want it getting in the way of preventing the rape of a minor.

“Time passed.
Susan waited.
The more Susan waited, the more the doorbell didn’t ring. Or the phone. She looked at her watch. She felt that now was about the time that she could legitimately begin to feel cross. She was cross already, of course, but that had been in her own time, so to speak. They were well and truly into his time now, and even allowing for traffic, mishaps, and general vagueness and dilatoriness, it was now well over half an hour past the time that he had insisted was the latest time they could possibly afford to leave, so she’d better be ready.
She tried to worry that something terrible had happened to him, but didn’t believe it for a minute. Nothing terrible ever happened to him, though she was beginning to think that it was time it damn well did. If nothing terrible happened to him soon maybe she’d do it herself. Now there was an idea.
She threw herself crossly into the armchair and watched the news on television. The news made her cross. She flipped the remote control and watched something on another channel for a bit. She didn’t know what it was, but it also made her cross.
Perhaps she should phone. She was damned if she was going to phone. Perhaps if she phoned he would phone her at the same moment and not be able to get through.
She refused to admit that she had even thought that.
Damn him, where was he? Who cared where he was anyway? She didn’t, that was for sure.”

St Michael’s Centre for Art & Wellbeing Market Research

St Michael’s Centre for Art & Wellbeing hopes to open in the new year to provide important community services in the Norwich area, both in-house and outreach. To do this we must bridge the gap between the private and public sectors. By using commercial business to create revenue to invest back in to the community we can identify, engage and support the most vulnerable and create greater cohesion between all members of that community. We are unique in that we do not have a criteria that must be met in order to access our services, our doors are open to all. Many services geared up towards a specific client group, such as homeless people, are lacking in provision to deal with the wider issues that are feeding in to, creating or exacerbating that situation such as substance misuse, mental health, poverty, or all/any of the aforementioned.

To do this successfully it is essential that we create profitable services that will fund our aims and objectives. This means we must conduct polls such as this to strive for better profitability, and therefore a better community.

If you could take a few seconds to complete this poll, and if possible forward it on to others that might do the same, we would be very grateful.

Thank you. And I hope to see you all soon.

The Tea-Snatchers From Outer Space (Teaser) (by KCJacksonProductions)

The most important I’ve ever produced. May 31st 2010. Pertinent once more. My heart goes out to the Palestinian people.

We all have something we love above everything else!

A taste of things to come!

Quite possibly the sexiest thing since sliced clitoris!

Learn to love thyself!!

“…wasn’t it stupid to argue whether it was the right thing or not if a talented and useful man - a musician or artist, for example - tore walls down and fooled his jailers to escape from prison? For any man in that situation, everything was honourable.”
