Estoy tan emocionada de poder escribir. Bien, Mi nombre es Angelina. Soy de Filadelfia se conoce como "La Ciudad de Amor Fraternal." Yo tener dos hermanos y cero hermanas. Mi cumpleaños es 04 de diciembre. Tengo 15 años. lo que me gusta hacer es platicar con amigos y estar de vaga. Salir con mi novio y ir al cine y hablar por teléfono. No me gusta nada leer y ir a la escuela. Tengo un mejor amigo, pero él murió el año pasado, Se fue a la playa y se ahogó en el agua. Así que perdí a mi mejor amigo. ¿Tienes un mejor amigo? si es así ¿cuál es su nombre? ¿Qué te gusta hacer? ¿Le gusta practicar deportes como el fútbol? ¿Estás contento de estar yo escribiendo? así que voy a hacer la tarea para escribir de nuevo tan prontocomo puedas!
The city council of Philadelphia has a department of parks and recreation. In their list of “strategic objectives,” they include their goal to “In an inclusive environment, provide a broad range of “out of school time” offerings, including after school programs...” This is the group of people appointed to fund and create after school programs for students in Philadelphia. In city council, Anne Marie Dunne and Iris Howard are both in charge of the after school programs in Philadelphia. None of these programs, however are given enough public support or publicity; you need to sift through piles of information on the web in order to get to their webpages. In city council, there are many resolutions and communications regarding after school programs in Philadelphia on file. Mayor Nutter is a big supporter of after school programs in Philadelphia, as he refers to the amount of money put forth to Philadelphia afters school programs in several of his budget addresses to city council. The most recent resolution adopted by the city council regarding funding for educational programs like after school programs in Philadelphia was Legislation 100173, sponsored by council members Rizzo, Miller, Greenlee, Green, Jones, and Kenney. The first time it was introduced to council, it was recessed. The second time it was introduced the same, it was adopted.
In order to lobby after school programs, I would first have to speak with my council member representative, which is Frank DiCicco. This will help me get a good grip on the council members and will help me make a stronger claim. On the other hand, I might not have to go that far because there are already resolutions and programs made to back up my lobbying topic. I could just talk to either Anne Marie Dunne or Iris Howard, who are in charge of the after school programs of Philadelphia. This way I can ask them how I can get involved in moving things forward.
There are also a variety of programs that I can coordinate with in order to lend a helping hand to the after school programs that already exist in Philadelphia. For example, there is a chain of “Just children” daycares/after school programs throughout the state of Pennsylvania. They take care children from toddlers to 6th grade students and have activities for kids of all ages to keep them busy and out of trouble during hours where they would normally be alone or unattended. The 21st century community learning centers initiative, “the only federal program dedicated to after school,” also works to fund after school programs throughout the nation, including the state of Pennsylvania. Cap 4 kids is an advocacy program that also works to give kids a place to stay after school. I can simply find the contact information for the person in charge of these programs and try to see if they have an upcoming meetings to activities near my district and help out in this way.
My best bet of getting results is to begin speaking with local after school programs and organizations and to try and see if I can volunteer or visit them. I found that there is an after school program on Montgomery Ave., close to me. I have found the name and contact information of the person in charge of this program, Edward Carpenter. The business hours for this after school program from Monday to Friday are 3:00pm to 6:00 pm. I can call Mr. Carpenter and ask to see how I can volunteer in the program, or set up a date where I can speak with him about what process people have to go through to open or run an after school program. I must call to schedule this appointment or interview during a week day from 3:00 to 6:00pm.
"Bicyclists like bike lanes, and they like buffered bike lanes even better. The Bicycle Coalition’s counts found streets with bike lanes had more cyclists than streets without them, and had more growth in bicyclists than streets without bike lanes.They also have more female bicyclists, less sidewalk riding, less wrong way riding, and more cyclists wearing helmets than streets without bike lanes. The buffered bike lanes had the same result, but even more amplified. These results confirm that better behavior goes hand in hand with better bicycling facilities. Facilities like buffered bike lanes make bicyclists feel safer."

I think I can influence people my age because I know how to relate to them to make them care about issues. There is no specific timeframe for my issue but it would be amazing if this bill could be passed before the next election so that all votes are held and accounted for the way they are cast.
So far no dates have been set to move forward with this bill but there has been some progress and actions made which is progression already.

In Pennsylvania's senate are people who are on my side. A few of these are Daylin Leach, Camille George, and my representatives I mentioned in my 2nd blog post. They and other members of PA's government have created laws such as Resolution 110686 and HB 2754. Fracking has also recieved a lot of media attention. The documentary "Gas Lands" by Josh Foxx (now an important and influential activist against fracking) was one of the original cries for help, but newspapers have covered fracking numerous time. They recently linked the recent earthquake activity with hydraulic fracturing. Marcellus Shale protests are now not uncommon, including an Occupy Pittsburgh in protest of fracking. While this is a good first step for my cause, it is also important to recognize the power my opponents hold in government.
These factors all add to the knowledge a young lobbyist like myself needs. I now know who to coordinate with, who are my opponents. More significantly, I know who I can influence and what that means for my issue.
“I used to walk down the street like I was a f***ing star… I want people to walk around delusional about how great they can be - and then to fight so hard for it every day that the lie becomes the truth.”
“Unique! Special! Unlike No Other! Two words, one phrase. Three things I hear all the time. I know I am capable of being great and I know that I am all three of things, but sometimes I refuse to believe it. Why? I don’t know. I guess its because I’ve had a lot of things happen to me that made me feel like I wasn’t unique or special.
I am a person who dream big! HUGE!
· I want my fantasy to become my reality.
· I will never let someone take away my humanity.
· I know I am capable of being someone great.
· I dream big and I don’t let anyone stop me. That’s what makes me unique, and special, and unlike no other.
· Because of who I am and what I believe I will make all three of these words come alive!
