Moscone Center is the largest convention and exhibition complex in San Francisco, California. It comprises three main halls: Two underground halls underneath Yerba Buena Gardens, known as Moscone North and Moscone South, and a three-level Moscone West exhibition hall across 4th Street. It was initially built in 1981 by architects Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum as one single hall, Moscone South, and named after San Francisco former mayor George Moscone, who was assassinated in November 1978.BackgroundThe South of Market Area where Moscone Center was built was claimed by the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, and a protracted battle was fought by the displaced low-income residents during the 1960s and 1970s.Although the Center is named after the murdered mayor, Moscone opposed the development of the area when he served on the SF Board of Supervisors in the 1960s because he felt it would displace elderly and poor residents of the area. As mayor, Moscone convened a special committee of proponents and opponents of a convention center. Hearings were held throughout SF seeking citizen input. A compromise was reached which was supported by Moscone. He put the matter on the ballot and it passed overwhelmingly.Labor organizations supported the construction of the Center, and were granted full labor jurisdiction. All labor in the Convention Center is performed by I.A.T.S.E. Local 16 Stagehands, Sign and Display Workers Local #510, Brotherhood of Teamsters local #65, IBEW Local #6, Security I.A.T.S.E.

Canine Cove, once called Howling Hollows, stemmed from a very simple idea.
Creating a warm place, for good company and a place to relax and find your north.
It sounds like a simple order. Remarkably so, but we are only promised the pursuit of happiness. You see, a common issue with an artist of many kinds is what to do with a blank canvas. Choosing a direction when you start with nothing. You erase, you start again, and you end with a finished product remarkably unlike what you started with.
I, am the owner and this is my creation. More about me can be found at: RiderUnleashed.com. It started as a home for my family and friends. But as life moves on, the idea and the dream evolves and things change and more of what I want and my ideas have materialized in my pursuit for my final product. It started as a wooded forest, and spent time as a warm and sunny beach, even a busy and bustling nightclub and lounge, and has finally found it’s roots as “Furry Reimagined”.
What is “Furry Reimagined”?
Try to find a beautiful, breath taking, quiet place to take yourself and your significant other.
Find a place with warm waves, spots to spend time together, a quiet place to dance together, and a place to relax with those that are like minded.
You’ll find that they don’t exist.
In a virtual world where sex sells, Canine Cove is a place free of strip poles and covered with the most beautiful romantic and relaxing spots SL has to offer.
The furry community has so many things to offer.
Beautiful, creative avatars based on common as well as exotic species.
Beautiful, creative destinations and themes that I likely would never have thought of.
But what I wanted the most… Was a beautiful place that felt like home.
So here we are, with private homes, shops, and a movie theater. A chapel for the special day no matter what species or type of couple. I understand that things aren’t always clear cut and fit easily in a box. But here… You’re welcome.
Welcome to Canine Cove, Furry Reimagined.
ElephantVoices uses knowledge acquired over decades to act as a voice for elephants. In the wild, ivory poaching, destruction of habitat, competition with people for diminishing resources, sport hunting, culling and capture all threaten the freedom and survival of elephants. In captivity, their well-being is affected by abusive practices and exploitation for commercial gain.
Through research, education, conservation and advocacy we promote the protection and kinder treatment of elephants whereever they may be.
As acknowledged experts on the natural behavior of elephants we offer insight to protect them and the authority to speak on their behalf.
A New Type of Rural Development Starts in the Tropics
As world demand for food, fiber, feed and fuel outpaces supply, increases in production are urgently needed. These needs must be achieved while maintaining and rebuilding forests and fisheries, as well as slowing the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Tropical nations hold the greatest potential to produce more food for the planet.
By increasing the productivity of already-cleared land and building on recent successes in slowing deforestation, we can feed more people while ending deforestation and mitigating climate change.
At Earth Innovation Institute, we foster this transition to low-emission rural development – a shift to economic growth that keeps forests and fisheries intact and rewards farmers, ranchers, and fishermen for using sustainable practices.
Habitat never gives homes away. When a family applies for one of our homes they must undergo an extensive application process. Our main requirement is that families earn between 40% and 60% of the median income in that county.
Once approved the family begins to complete their 500 hours of sweat equity, our version of a downpayment. They complete this onsite, swinging hammers right next to the other volunteers. At the same time they enter our Homebuyer Readiness Program, a series of classes that teaches basic fincancial literacy. These classes are free and open to anyone, not just our partner families. After the home is done, the keys are handed over in a dedication ceremony. The family then owns the house with a zero-interest mortgage and a payment plan setup specifically for their needs.
