Pay 2 Play Pasadena Screening @Pay2PlayTV

Thursday, November 13, 2014 at 07:00 PM

Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, CA
Armory Center Pasadena

PAY 2 PLAY follows filmmaker John Ennis’ quest to find a way out from under the Pay 2 Play System, where Politicians reward their donors with even larger sums from the public treasury — through contracts, tax cuts, and deregulation. Along the way, he journeys through high drama on the Ohio campaign trail, uncovers the secret history of the game Monopoly, and explores the underworld of L.A. street art on a humorous odyssey that reveals how much of a difference one person can make. PAY 2 PLAY: Democracy’s High Stakes is the layman’s guidebook to taking back our democracy.

Pay 2 Play will be screened by the Conscientious Projector monthly film series, in association with the Armory Center and sponsored by Sustainable World, a Peace and Justice Ministry of All Saints Church.

Google Inbox – Invite New Email Platform #googleinbox Invites in eBay

Google is introducing something new. It’s called Inbox. Years in the making, Inbox is by the same people who brought you Gmail, but it’s not Gmail: it’s a completely different type of inbox, built to fit your life.

If you have a Gmail account, send an email to to be put on a list.

Inbox by Gmail is a whole new experience designed by the Gmail team to help you stay organized and get back to what matters. Learn more on the Official Gmail Blog.

If you’re a new user of Inbox by Gmail, welcome! If you haven’t already, take a look at some of the key features:

Bundles: Do you spend a lot of time organizing your emails? Inbox automatically bundles related emails (like Promotions) together so you can review and deal with them all at once. You can bundle your own labels too.

Highlights: Inbox highlights what you need to know without even opening the message. This includes photos, events, flights, purchases, and more.

Reminders: Have you ever sent an email to yourself to remember something? Now you can add your own Reminders to the top of your inbox to help you get things done.

Snooze: Inbox lets you Snooze emails or Reminders until you want to deal with them: next week, when you get home, or whenever you choose.

Inbox works with Gmail, so your messages, labels and filters (to name a few) will all be there. Inbox is not a replacement of Gmail, it’s a completely different experience to help you tackle the problem of how to manage your inbox.

Also, you can search on ebay as there are invites being sold ranging from $15 to $200.

Here’s the official video from Google on inbox.
