SBC Communications Inc. has donated a $500,000 SBC Foundation grant to help launch a national campaign that will raise money for the Dallas-based Women’s Museum, which chronicles the lives of American women through interactive exhibitions. The Women’s Museum, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, will use the grant to bring the Smithsonian’s most-visited permanent exhibition, “First Ladies: Political Role and Public Image” to Dallas from Nov. 20 through Feb. 13, 2005.
Help for the Undecided Voter
If your college-age kid still has not decided who gets his or her vote next month, you may want to point out Rock the Vote’s Mobile Find Your Candidate application. It’s a wireless questionnaire presented by Motorola Inc. and Rock the Vote. Download the application free from www.rtvmo.com to a Javaenabled mobile handset or answer the questionnaire via a WAP interface. The questionnaire measures user opinions on social and political issues including war, taxes and the environment. When the questionnaire is completed, the name of the major party candidate who most closely fits a user’s views appears.
“If you become satisfied, you become complacent, and you lose the initiative and the drive that made you a success in the first place.”
