second Cloud Computing Workshop in Montreal

Are you interested in exploring how new cloud computing tools might

help you better manage your information and communications?

Are you looking for a framework to help you assess which new tool

might be best for you?

If so, you may be interested in attending an upcoming Introduction

to Innoweave Cloud Computing workshop, hosted in partnership between

Innoweave and the Centre for Community Organizations

on November 10th in Montreal.

The workshop is designed to help leadership teams of 3-4

(including key IT staff and board members) of community organizations to:

. Clarify the goals and requirements of their information technology systems

. Analyze the benefits and risks of moving some or all of their organization's

technology infrastructure to cloud cloud computing;

. Apply a proven methodology for identifying challenge areas, surfacing

ideas on how to address them, and evaluating technology solutions against

the selection criteria that they develop;

. Estimate the total cost of ownership for implementing a cloud-based or

hybrid technology approach and conduct a zero-based budgeting exercise

to distinguish between essential and nonessential activities supported

by the IT budget; and

. Design a technology strategy that aligns with their organization's mission,

culture, and available resources. The Innoweave Cloud Computing workshop

builds on the Innoweave Introduction to Cloud Computing webinar.

You are encouraged to view this webinar online prior to submitting your

application to the workshop. Please note that this workshop will be conducted

in English and French.

Event details: When:

November 10th, 2014, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Where:

Centre St-Pierre, 1212 Rue Panet, Montreal, QC

Deadline: Applications are due by Friday, October 24th, 2014.

Space is limited. Successful applicants will be notified by email.

Only one application form per team is required. Participating organizations

will also be eligible to apply for a small implementation grant in January 2015

to engage a coach to help them with development following the workshop.

Misogynoir, Hypersexualization, and Black Feminism

Organized by Black Students' Network of McGill

Law Building, NCDH 101

The BSN will be hosting a discussion about Black Feminism

and the Black Female Body, open to the whole McGill community!

We will watch some media, before moving to open-floor discussion!

"Misogynoir" is a term coined by queer black feminist scholar

Moya Bailey. Misogynoir refers to anti-black misogyny, where race

and gender together are factors in the oppression of black women.

The concept is grounded in theories of intersectionality.

anishnabe People's Clan Council .

Our Voices Matter

NOV 15 at Ottawa

The Algonquin Territory of the Anishnabe People has been goldmine for

Canada's econonmic development grossing Billions of dollars yearly from

Mining and forestry and plans yet to insert pipelines through the territory.

The People's Clan Council are gathering to meet and discuss what is threathening

the way of life for our people on the lands and the waters of the

Ottawa River Watershed.

The territorial lands of the Anishnabeg holds manys of the richest wildlif

from soils, rare earths minerals, over 15 trees used for different wood products

that is being sold to oversea markets, and the animals that are hunted yearly

for games and trophies such as the wolves, moose and deers.

 

What currently threathens the future of the lands and wild life habitant are the

current Land Claims that will only seal the deals of the destructions of our

ands, waters and wildlife only to bring in more agreements for mining and

forestry. While most of the INAC leaders sign away to have harmonized cuts

and sit in meetings with Natural Resorces to bring in other plans without using

the trust of our People's Clan Council's beliefs. Band elected leaders are making

too much decisions way ahead assuming its for the best interest of the people.

The Anishnabe Clan Council have their views and separate interest for the

land apart from the interests of Band elected leaders and its time our

People's Clan Council are heard because our voices matter..

 

Agenda

9am - 12 pm

Meeting with invited Speakers of our Algonquin Communities.

To review and discuss what are the threathening matters in our territories...

what has been done and what can be done in a unified approched and

supports needed.

12pm - lunch

1pm - 3 pm

Panel to address to the public what our positions are and what the Peoples

Clan Councils are willing to share, teach, do for our lands, for the future well

beings of our children and all wild life on the Anishnabe Unceded

Territory

4 pm

Supper & Debrief~Set up date to meet and ensure our People work

as a Unified Nation with the Land as its first priorty Potlot event...

please support our Nation's effort to voice for heartland of Mother Earth...

bring your wonderful dishes.. come share a day with us in thoughts,

tories, prayers and support..

 

Migwetch!

protest against fossil fuel projects and the Plan Nord

Saturday, November 15th - 1pm

Corner Guy and Maisonneuve West

(Guy Concordia Metro).

 

These pipelines will not pass

For decades a scientific consensus, shared by over 97% of climate scientists,

has existed around climate change. It is real, it is man-made and it will extinguish

life on earth as we know it if we continue to spew carbon into the atmosphere.

 

The implications are clear: we must transform our society, and shift away from

fossil fuels, in order to avert catastrophic climate change.

 

To do otherwise would be nothing short of suicidal.

Unfortunately our politicians, from Couillard in Quebec to Harper in Ottawa and

most if not all of our opposition leaders, appear to have a societal death wish.

How else to explain why they consistently place the interests of big oil

companies ahead of the interests of the people who elected them?

 

By backing pipeline expansion projects and other modes of fossil fuel transport

that will allow for rapid expansion of the tar sands, and other destructive

resource extraction projects like Plan Nord, our so-called leaders are selling

out our future.

 

It's all part of the austerity agenda, which our politicians are executing to

perfection. Social inequality is skyrocketing, and our ability to resist climate

change is being gutted. The established political parties are sacrificing our health,

our planet and the future of humanity for the short-sighted benefit of industries,

such as the fossil fuel industry, whose business is killing us.

 

The science is simple: we must leave 80% of the oil in the soil if we are to have

any chance of holding global warming below two degrees, the threshold beyond

which scientists predict catastrophe. That cannot happen if the Alberta tar

sands continue to expand, and that's why Canada is ground zero in the fight

for the future of our planet.

 

Fierce resistance to Northern Gateway in B.C., and to Keystone XL in the U.S.,

has been part of an activist strategy of containment: if the tar sands cannot ge

its oil to market, it cannot expand. Now, that strategy of containment comes

down to the battle of Quebec.

 

The slogan of the U.S. movement, one which put over 400,000 in the streets

of New York earlier this fall, is "to change everything, we need everyone."

That's why we need you. Activists can lead this fight, but they can't win it

alone.

To do that, we need you to join us in building a movement more powerful than

any pipeline. One which will lead us away from fossil fuels and towards an

economy which respects the ecological limits of this planet.

 

The whole world is watching, and it is no exaggeration to say the fate

of the planet rests in our hands.

 

Join us. November 15, 1pm.

The Lubberland National Dance Company presents:

Bombing Instead of Negotiating.

A Bread and Puppet production

Saturday, NOV 15 at 8 pm

Venue :

Café l'Artère 7000 avenue du Parc,

Montréal H3N 1X1

 

The Lubberland National Dance Co. presents:

Bombing Instead of Negotiating.

A Bread and Puppet production.

 

The LNDC was formed 10 years ago with the help of local volunteers as an

urgent dance revolt against unbearable news of circumstance and is the

revival of the "Gruppe Fuer Neuen Tanz" which Peter Schumann founded

60 years ago in Munich, Germany.

The dances are created from simple instruction, either as a result of a short

workshop or directly as public participation dances. They range from traditional

truth-relationship to public opinion making dances, and from collateral

damage to warmonger defiance dancing.

The current unbearable news: Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper

has announced a major escalation of Canada’s role in the new US-led

war in the Middle East.

 

We call to arms! And legs! We call all citizenry to utilize

your finger pointing dance skills;

we need wobbly knees to move the hunched-over populace;

We want big voices and little voices to accompany defiant shoulders;

We need bartenders and bakers and brick-layers to shake toes

against the war-for-oil-market-stability at hand.

Suggested Donation $10

no one turned away!
