Student/Farmworker Alliance

Student/Farmworker Alliance is a national network of students and youth formally organized in 2000. SFA campaigns for the improvement of working conditions in the agricultural fields of the United States; the organization cooperates with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, a membership-led organization of Mexican and Mayan Indian immigrants working in agricultural and other low-wage jobs throughout the state of Florida. In March 2005, after four years of campaigning, farmworkers from the CIW and their allies scored a decisive victory in their national Taco Bell boycott. Yielding to growing pressure from the CIW, other allies, Taco Bell and its parent company Yum! Brands conceded to all of the boycott's demands, agreeing to work with the CIW to improve the sub-poverty wages and working conditions of farmworkers in its tomato supply chain. Students and youth were a crucial part of this grassroots coalition; as Taco Bell's target market, they instead put a target on Taco Bell, making the boycott one of the fastest-growing campaigns for economic justice on campuses and communities throughout the country.

Between 2002 and 2005, twenty-two high schools and universities removed or prevented Taco Bell restaurants and sponsorships as part of SFA's “Boot the Bell” campaign. By the boycott's end, dozens of additional campaigns were underway, Taco Bell was unable to secure new campus contracts without fear of vocal student opposition. In the wake of the Taco Bell Boycott victory, the CIW focused in 2006 on the McDonald's Corporation, demanding better wages for the farmworkers providing tomatoes in their supply chain. On April 9, 2007, after two years of intense campaigning, McDonald's agreed to meet all of the CIW's demands; as in the Taco Bell Boycott victory and student organizing played a crucial role in the swift success of the McDonald's campaign.

Gravisauria

Gravisauria is a clade of sauropod dinosaurs consisting of some genera and Eusauropoda. The clade Gravisauria was appointed by the French paleontologist Ronan Allain and Moroccan paleontologist Najat Aquesbi in 2008 when a cladistic analysis of the dinosaur found by Allain, Tazoudasaurus, as the outcome was that the family Vulcanodontidae; the group includes Tazoudasaurus and Vulcanodon, the sister taxon Eusauropoda, but certain species such as Antetonitrus and Isanosaurus that do not belong in Vulcanodontidae but to an more basic position occupied in Sauropoda. It made sense to have Sauropoda compared to this, more derived group that included Vulcanodontidae and Eusauropoda in a definition: Gravisauria, defined as the group formed by the last common ancestor of Tazoudasaurus and Saltasaurus and all its descendants. Below is a cladogram found by Nair and Salisbury in 2012 showing the relationships of Gravisauria: Aquesbi mentioned two synapomorphies, shared derived characteristics of Gravisauria: the vertebrae are wider side to side than front to rear and possession of asymmetrical condyles femoris at the bottom of the femur.

Those were not thought to be Eusauropoda synapomorphies but Allian found these properties on Tazoudasaurus. Gravisauria split off in the Early Jurassic, around the Pliensbachian and Toarcian, 183 million years ago, Aquesbi thought that this was part of a much larger revolution in the fauna, which includes the disappearance of Prosauropoda and basal Thyreophora, which they attributed to a worldwide mass extinction.

Toe Jam Hill

Toe Jam Hill, 425 feet tall, is the high point on Bainbridge Island and one of the highest points in Kitsap County, Washington. Its name has several explanations, including that it was named for a local settler with the name Torjam, that it was named for stumbling drunkards, or that existing explanations are "all conjecture"; the hill was once a "villainous" milestone for bicycle riders on the Chilly Hilly season opener sponsored by Seattle's Cascade Bicycle Club, on the Bainbridge Island Half Marathon called Toe Jam Hill Half Marathon. The Bainbridge Island high point's location is reported variously at highpointing websites. Lists of John gives Gazzam Lake Hill based on USGS topographic maps, which used photographic aerial surveys and stereoplotters. Peakbagger.com gives Toe Jam Hill at 15 feet higher or more, based on newer high-resolution LIDAR maps. LIDAR surveys in the 1990s identified a geologic fault, now named the Toe Jam Hill Fault, north of the hill, it may be secondary to the Seattle Fault.

It was the first fault discovered by laser imagery. A city park, Nutes Pond Park, was created on Toe Jam Hill in 2011
