GIMP Your Photos

GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program.  Now, I now what you're thinking..."huh?".  I had the same reponse, and I'll admit I had to look up the meaning of GNU (a computer operating system comprised entirely of free software).  Basically, this means that GIMP, despite it's rather unfortunate name, is a super-duper, Photoshop like, photo editing software that is completely free.  That's right, free!

The Census is Coming, The Census is Coming!

Ok, the Census is already here, so remember it's not just a gigantic roll-call to see who's present. It means big bucks! The Census statistics help the government distribute more than $400 billon dollars a year in federal funds to communities to fund hospitals, schools, job training, new roads, and more.  That's more than $4 trillion dollars over a 10-year period.

In the 2000 Census, it's estimated that more than 1 million people of color were not counted. In Harris County (Houston), Tx, an estimated 71,592 people were not counted, which resulted in a loss of $234.4 million dollars in federal funds for our local communities.
