Kim Dao Takes Us Sightseeing in Osaka

On May 5,2017, Kim Dao started by showing us some Neko note that means cat’s paw. It resembles two cat’s paws put together like a wafer. The part of the paw near where the claws would be or the knuckle part of the human hand was lined with drops of pink icing. Neko no te looked more like a double cookie with crème in between than a bread. Kim Dao also showed us Sakura au pan bread that looked like a sugar cookie with a cherry on top.Learn more :

After visiting the park area where the castle was, Kim Dao decided to visit the Osaka Aquarium( She told us she would film outside the aquarium but not go inside because Kim Dao already had filmed footage of the aquarium previously. On the way to the aquarium, Kim Dao passed by some shops and a Ferris wheel. Outside the aquarium, they had fish flags hanging in the air by wires to simulate flying fish. The two wide windows of the aquarium looked like fish tanks with fish swimming. After filming the exterior of the aquarium. Kim went home.Learn more :


How did Avaaz become the world’s largest online activist network?

If you have been involved in any kind of online activism, you will probably have heard of Avaaz. Currently the world’s largest and some say most powerful activist network, Avaaz has almost 45 million members and adds hundreds of thousands more every month.

How did Avaaz become this big and this powerful? By using tactics its founder, Ricken Patel, learned while working for the International Crisis Group in Africa and Afghanistan and by volunteering for

Setting up teams on six continentsAvaaz set up small core teams of employees on each continent. These teams overseas local, national and international campaigns, organize demonstrations and media campaigns, and get local people involved.
Rather than stay in the U.S. where it is based, Avaaz went out to the world and asked the world to help.

Campaigns in 17 languagesAvaaz runs its campaigns in 17 languages, including English. That means there is almost always a language someone who wants to get involved will understand.

They work on any issue — Where many activist networks are single-issue oriented, Avaaz works on any issue whether it is human rights, animal rights, climate change, poverty, the environment or conflict.

This means there is always something a prospective member would be interested in getting involved in.

Avaaz involves its members — Rather than just deciding which issues will be targeted, Avaaz asks its members which issues it thinks are important.

When a new issue is being considered, the organization polls 10,000 randomly chosen members and asks them if they think it should be looked at or ignored. What those 10,000 members say goes.

The issue is then kicked off to the rest of Avaaz’s 44 million members, who already know a large group of their own voted on this, so they know it must be important.
