Let's Support a Great (And Fuzzy) Cause!

The marathon bombings on April 15th, 2013 changed the face of running forever. In light of this incredible tragedy, everyone in the city and runners across the country united to show the world that we are #BostonStrong. This incredible community was the main inspiration for me to qualify and train for the historic 2014 Boston marathon.

After the attacks, a major comfort was my fur baby, Lady BunBun. Throughout a range of emotions from sadness to anger, my mini-lop showed unconditional love and was a incredible companion in a dark time. On a broader reaching scale, Comfort Animal teams from the MSPCA were deployed in Boston following the Marathon bombings to visit hospitalized victims, college students, running clubs, and many other affected members of the community.

Now is my turn to repay the favor. We can be #BostonStrong for the animals! Not all animals are as fortunate as Lady BunBun. The statistics on animal cruelty and abuse are staggering. Over 30 million animals in the U.S. die each year from cruelty, neglect, and exploitation. The mission of the MSPCA-Angell is to protect animals, relieve their suffering, advance their health and welfare, prevent cruelty, and work for a just and compassionate society.

Let's make my running the 2014 Marathon mean something more than 26.2 miles. Please support this awesome cause and a proud city!

ABOUT THE MSPCA:

The MSPCA-Angell is a national and international leader in animal protection and veterinary medicine and provides direct hands-on care for thousands of animals each year. Founded in 1868, they are the second-oldest humane society in the United States. Services include animal protection and adoption, advocacy, humane education, law enforcement, and world-class veterinary care.

The MSPCA-Angell is a private, nonprofit organization. They do NOT receive any government funding nor are funded or operated by any national humane organization. The MSPCA-Angell relies solely on the support and contributions of individuals who care about animals.

Who is MELISSA?

I have been a runner since I was 12 and an animal lover since birth. This will be my fifth marathon and second time at Boston. I also enjoy half marathons (10 under my belt) and any costume run (Batman is a favorite!). When I'm not running as Batman, I am a graduate student at Harvard completing my PhD in Biology. Running has always been a joy in my life, and I cannot wait for the opportunity to join so many fellow runners at the 2014 Marathon!

Who is LADY BUNBUN?

As soon as I saw this mini-lop in 2010, I knew we were destined to be best buds. Due to her spunky personality and panda-like features, I rushed to the MSPCA right after she was available for adoption. Every since, it has been a match made in heaven. Despite her charismatic and lively personality, Lady BunBun did not always have an easy life. She had a major dental disease for the past few years that resulted in difficulty eating and much pain for our furry friend. Due to the perseverance and incredible care of the Angell hospital staff, Lady BunBun has recovered to full health after multiple surgeries and is back to her happy, binky rabbit self (though let's admit it, she can totally be a diva).

The MSPCA has been a family to me. Running in support of this amazing cause is the least that I can do!

If you are a road warrior away from your home town you may not have an easily accessible place to find an Internet connection for your laptop enabling access to the Internet world to get your email, read reports, work on Excel spreadsheets and send off a Power Point presentation. Thats where WiFi hotspots come into our picture, something we touched on before. These are wireless networks that can be very convenient.
Many cities have jumped on the bandwagon of providing WiFi throughout the downtown core. Enabling business people to use this facility provides a boost to the local economy.
There is a cost to the municipality of doing this, of course. They need a provider to set up and maintain the network. The physical structure of the network has to take the size and layout of the city, tree cover, landscape and other factors into consideration. I read a recent article which addressed the problems some major cities are having with WiFi zones. Chicago and L.A. have given up because it is too costly resulting from advertising revenue projections being too high.
Of course you can always go to the over-priced coffee shop where asking for a regular coffee brings a blank stare.
Before you ride merrily off to the next burg you need to know if your hardware will support WiFi. A wireless network uses radio waves just like cell phones, televisions and radios do. In fact, communication across a wireless network is a lot like two-way radio communication. Here's what happens:
1. A computer's wireless adapter translates data into a radio signal and transmits it using an antenna.
2. A wireless router receives the signal and decodes it. It sends the information to the Internet using a physical, wired Ethernet connection.
The process also works in reverse, with the router receiving information from the Internet, translating it into a radio signal and sending it to the computer's wireless adapter.
As long as they all have wireless adapters, several devices can use one router to connect to the Internet. This connection is convenient and virtually invisible, and it's fairly reliable. If the router fails or if too many people try to use high-bandwidth applications at the same time, however, users can experience interference or lose their connections.
If you want to take advantage of public WiFi hotspots, the first thing you'll need to do is make sure your computer has the right wireless gear. Most new laptops and many new desktop computers come with built-in wireless transmitters. If your laptop doesn't, you can buy a wireless adapter that plugs into the PC card slot or USB port. Desktop computers can use USB adapters, or you can buy an adapter that plugs into the PCI slot inside the computer's case. Many of these adapters can use more than one 802.11 standard.
Once you've installed your wireless adapter and the drivers that allow it to operate, your computer should be able to automatically discover existing networks. This means that when you turn your computer on in a WiFi hotspot, the computer will inform you that the network exists and ask whether you want to connect to it. If you have an older computer, you may need to use a software program to detect and connect to a wireless network.
The question might be asked as to why not use a web-enabled PDA device. They are wonderful for most emailing but they are problematic when it comes to opening attachments or working with lengthy reports. The screen is so small you can get a headache just from squinting at them too long. And your typing skills can drop dramatically so that your messages can be almost unintelligible. So for the heavy-duty stuff a laptop that can access WiFi becomes not just convenient but a necessity.

Toy-grade models are not made with any parts that are repairable, replaceable, or interchangeable. The new technology takes the control of high beam out of the hand of the driver. Looking for something to do with your old cars that seem useless for you.

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Thanks
