Jon Bon Jovi and Spark Action want to get youth involved in their community

APR 20, 2012 – Jon Bon Jovi who is part of President Obama's White House Council for Community Solutions has teamed up with Spark Action, a website that will be a digital platform for young people to come and "submit their ideas and spark measurable action in their community".  Jon Bon Jovi tells us in a PSA (watch below) that as a result of the tough economic times, there are over 6 million young people not in school or unemployed, and tells of how he met with smart, young people bristling with ideas; and they said they needed a place to go to help change things. So, the Spark Action web platform was created. Bon Jovi urges young people to come to the website and submit their ideas for solutions to these tough economic times, and they can be discussed and voted on by all who take part.

Sites “Go Dark” to Protest SOPA

JAN 18, 2012 – MichaelMoore.com, and many other sites, have "gone dark" today to protest the proposed "anti-piracy" bill currently being considered in congress. On Michael Moore's website, your mouse cursor becomes a spotlight, and Moore's site says "We need to kill these bills to protect our rights to free speech, privacy and prosperity."

Opponents are worried about free speech rights, and the ramifications if this bill is passed. Activist musician Peter Gabriel will be taking his site down in protest against SOPA and said in a statement“This year is going to be a very crucial year for the fate of digital rights and freedoms on the internet. We strongly support the campaign against both the Protect IP Act and the Stop Online Piracy Act. For that reason our websites will be down from 05.00 GMT for 24 hours in support of the campaign. ”  Also, Jasiri X has come out against SOPA, and many other musicians. If you go to a website today and it won't come up or you get a black screen, this may be the reason.
