Ask any teacher or lecturer what the biggest barrier to education is currently and they’ll probably agree it’s a combination of short attention spans and smartphone usage. Classrooms across North America are filled with students who spend more of their time on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram than they do listening to the content being delivered as part of their education. Schools and colleges were fighting a losing battle in encouraging students to switch off their smartphones and pay attention, well they were until Pocket Points arrived on the scene. Read More
There’s a thought provoking meme doing the rounds online that basically says, “Imagine for a second that trees gave off Wi-Fi signals, we’d be planting trees everywhere and we’d probably go a long way to saving our planet, too. Too bad they only produce the oxygen we breathe and not just sit there looking pretty.” The sad thing about this meme is that it’s true – we place more value on the strength of our Wi-Fi signal than on the health of our ecosystems. But people are starting to wake up to the fact that Mother Nature matters, and a recent initiative by Sacramento’s City Council aims to protect the city’s urban forest.
The goal of the new ordinance is to allow for better management of the Sacramento’s trees, both on public and private property.

Now that the trees have been recognized as an integral part of the city’s infrastructure, and that our urban forest is just as important a feature of the city as anything else, it makes sense to preserve them.
If the smell of freshly cut grass, backyard BBQ and the blazing, fiery ball in the sky overhead hasn’t been enough to convince you that summer is here, well maybe the California State Fair can. Even the world’s greatest curmudgeon can’t resist a State Fair, and the proof of that is the CSF is now celebrating its 163rd year of bringing fun, food and entertainment to residents of Sacramento. The 2016 fair looks set to attract around 600,000 visitors, part of the annual increase in visitors it’s been enjoying now for the last few decades.
Now, when you think about the fair you’re automatically thinking cotton candy, corn dogs, and all sorts of beverages. Sure, there’s lots of amazing stuff to enjoy at the fair, but from July 8th to July 24th we’re pretty sure you’re going to be thinking with your stomach first, and your head second.

Start By Collecting Boxes For The Move:
