Prison Program Saves the Lives of Many Cats and Dogs in South Carolina

This is such a wonderful story! Apparently the shelter talked about in this documentary, had a close to 100% kill rate.
This social program is great for the animals and inmates alike - It gives purpose to the lives of inmates inside and something to love and to give love back.
Hopefully other institutions see the benefits of this - It's a win, win in my opinion.

Purism Announces Librem 5 Phones are now Shipping

via:Purism website

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., September 24, 2019 — The first Librem 5 smartphones roll off the assembly line and ship to customers.
Earlier this month, Purism announced an iterative, transparent shipping schedule for the highly anticipated Librem 5, security and privacy focused smartphone. Today’s shipment marks the beginning of that process, with more Librem 5s to ship in the coming shipment batches.
“This is a big moment,” stated Todd Weaver, founder and CEO of Purism. “Not just for us as a company, but for everyone concerned about issues of privacy, security, and user freedom. The Librem 5 represents years of work, building the software and hardware required to make this phone a reality.”
Everyone who pre-ordered the Librem 5 smartphone will be receiving an email letting them know which shipping batch — and what shipping date window — they are scheduled for, before we prepare each batch for shipment.  You can find more details in the batch shipping announcement and the FAQ.
“Seeing the amazing effort of the Purism team, and holding the first fully functioning Librem 5, has been the most inspirational moment of Purism’s five year history,” stated Todd Weaver.  “It has taken nothing short of each and every teammate devoting their expertise in earnest to get to where we are, plus a community of remarkable people who understand that we must succeed in creating a phone that offers society complete control and ownership to fully respect them as humans. This is what the Librem 5 stands for and in my humble view is a phone that represents the largest of visions shouting from the rooftops, ‘I will not give up my freedom!’  This is a personal note of thanks to the Purism team, the backers who have supported us overwhelmingly every step of the way, and the community who has volunteered from spreading the word, shared ideas, bought phones, and developed immense amounts of code.”
