On Wednesday October 22nd 2008, Aimee and 50 of her friends, including Jodie Marsh, went to a starbucks in London with their own mugs. Aimee is running a campaign to make people realise how easy it is to bring your own mug with you when you get a coffee.
"Few people are aware of the 25p incentive Starbucks offer for those who bring their own mugs with them. It is the only incentive offered by any coffee chain, and needs to be more widely advertised as very few people are aware of such a scheme."

Did you know that 1000 people die every year because of the shortage of organ donors in the UK?
My campaign will raise awareness of organ donation and encourage more people to think, talk and do something about it. As a result, this campaign will save and transform lives.

From 1970's Castro culture to today's Bears and gym rats, this fascinating investigation of gay men and sexuality blows the lid off old stereotypes and showcases a battalion of interviewees including muscle men, rodeo riders, rugby players and cops.
DESPICABLE! Instead of denouncing racial & homophobic slurs directed at Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) and Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) lashes out at Democrats instead thinkprogress
A very funny and well-Made video.
This video uses excerpts from music videos to make a satire or parody of a well-Known public figure. This constitutes "fair use" of this material.
If you think homosexuality is a choice, Theo Taylor disagrees with you. In a major way.

It seemed like a happy ending to a long and painful journey. A patient in dire need of a kidney transplant finally reaches the top of the list and has the procedure. But then, after surgery, he tests positive for HIV. Where’d it come from? The donor.
ABC says a man tested negative for HIV 10 weeks before he donated his kidney – but – sometime between the negative test and surgery he contracted the virus. (Video: ABC News)
The hospital conducted no further testing before transplanting the kidney. After an investigation New York City’s Department of Health says the hospital followed all the necessary protocols. Now health officials want organ donors screened for HIV just before transplant surgeries.
New York Daily News reports officials saying although the donor didn’t test positive for HIV 79 days prior to the surgery...
“...he had a history of syphilis and sex with men...”
The article goes on to report Centers for Disease Control and Prevention saying the chances of this happening remain very low. Some news outlets were even reporting it to be the first time something like this happened in more than 30 years.
“Federal Health Officials have documented the first known case of HIV spread by a living organ donor.”
“It’s the only known case of its type.”
“For the first time since HIV screening began back in the 1980s an organ transplant recipient has been infected by the kidney of a living donor.”
But Salon says it isn’t the first time.
“At least one similar U.S. case has been reported in the media. An Orlando woman last year filed a lawsuit, saying she was infected with HIV through a 2007 kidney transplant in Florida.”
And The Huffington Post says it’s happened with a deceased donor.
“Since the 1980s, there has been a confirmed report of a deceased donor's organs spreading the AIDS virus. That happened in Illinois in 2007, when organs from a 38-year-old gay man went to four recipients.”
According to the Daily Mail - New York State’s Department of Health is proposing new measures to prevent a case like this from happening again. Those measures include encouraging doctors to ask about donors’ sexual history.
