That Burrito Place will celebrate their second location in Ithaca with a special ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, February 20th at 12:00 noon. As part of the festivities, all food at That Burrito Place will be half-price from noon to 2:00 PM. The celebration will continue throughout the “Downtown Chili cook-off” with That Burrito Place offering fresh cups of hot chocolate for just 50 cents all weekend long.
Located in the former Juna's Cafe space at 146 E. State Street, "TBP," as regulars call it, is a welcome addition to the bustling Commons area. Entrepreneur and Cornell Hotel School graduate Jeff Mayer opened the first TBP in January 2007, offering fresh, Cali-Mexican food on-the-go. The new location provides plenty of seating for customers to enjoy their food in a fun, upbeat atmosphere.
At TBP, customers can build their own huge burrito to their liking and watch it assembled right in front of them. The options are endless - choose from fresh ingredients like salsas made from scratch or the legendary guacamole. In addition to custom burritos, customers can also build their own bowl (a "tortilla-less burrito"), salad or nachos. The numerous combinations, as well as several options for vegetarians (including a daily vegetarian special), and a kid's menu, has made TBP a popular destination for a quick, healthy lunch, dinner or snack. In addition to in-store dining, TBP also provides easy take-out, delivery and catering options. The "lunch box combo" includes a custom burrito, chips and salsa, a drink and dessert.
That Burrito Place is open from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM Monday through Saturday. Their full menu can be viewed at www.thatburritoplace.com

What's New in ReUse?A sampling of items currently at the ReUse Center includes dining sets, chairs, bookshelves, French doors, cast iron brackets, ornate radiators, lighting, dimensional lumber, and more. The ReUse Center not only offers a convenient retail outlet, but also will serve as a community-gathering place and education center where people can exchange ideas and learn skills in transforming materials for new uses.Our MissionTo enhance community, economy, and environment through reuse.VisionToday, many tons of construction and building materials, computers, electronics, household goods, textiles, furniture, and other materials unnecessarily enter landfills. Imagine instead a place where consumers find salvaged goods ready for use, where artists infuse used objects with creative new life, where youth learn to refurbish computers, where a builder finds the perfect door, where low-income residents develop workforce skills, and where all members of the community benefit from the low-cost availability of quality goods. Used materials - too often wasted - are assets with overlooked value. Finger Lakes ReUse will tap this value to benefit the community and environment by re-directing materials from the waste stream into productive new uses.
Finger Lakes ReUse will partner with existing local reuse programs to expand their capacity by providing a centrally located retail outlet with extended hours, warehouse space, and streamlined administrative support. Finger Lakes ReUse will collaborate with existing reuse programs, human service providers, trade organizations, and others to provide complementary, expanded services and consciously avoid programmatic duplication in support of our mission.
We will operate a community-oriented warehouse, shopping, and educational experience where maximum reuse of materials is a priority; where safety, cleanliness, customer service, good business, education and creativity are stressed; where living wage jobs are created and supported; where mentoring opportunities are available; and where education in the skills of reuse is offered. Everyone in the community will be able to enjoy and partake in the services offered by Finger Lakes ReUse.

Schools 2000 Proboards Forum
At several College and University campuses, several International Students / Scholars have banded themselves into recognized student groups. First this was a means to keep in touch with ones home, as the human connection between fellow citizens help'ed in the sociocultural transition. None the less, and more importantly, these groups started to initiate their own social and cultural programs. The ripple affect within the sociocultural academic ethos was awesome as it created a high character representation of their homeland and peoples and resulted in long term relationships after graduation with Americans. Americans who got an up-front cultural education as a direct emotional consequence of freindships they and the International Students / Scholars formed together. In several instances, both in the private, as well as in the political sector these freindships had even a more profound impact on the American national consciousness in its foreign relations

Welcome to Du Avant Garde 2000.
Please advise what you know about the movements which existed before in areas like Paris, France, Madrid, Spain, New York City, or Boston. Also indicate what you may know about those who are members in this generation of youth who are sixteen years old and younger ( for a bench mark age ) who are exhibiting traits of being the " Heroic Generation."
Always keep everhting thing ' Family Friendly ', and realize though we challenge standards we do so with a clean consciousness, and there by, just as much as Andy Warhol, also detests dirt. Keep it clean always...
None - the - less, the Heroic Generation has one thing. To have reached a point in their own consciousness as being significant enough as to be interested in other cultures and peoples-with the attitude of appreciation of the values systems which support diffrences between cultures. What this may also indicate, in the real realm of idealism, that once their own lives becomes to any certain degree significant. their willingness to invest their own lives in others will be something to behold.

Science, Technologies, Public Policy and Ethics:
Ithaca, New York: After several seminars at the University of Buffalo a critical central issue public access to public policy considerations caused by advance sceince and their advancing technologies surfaced in which several similar issues gave clear indication for immediate communication, education, and ethical review. As a result of these discussions the following... Most important, from Night Life ( NightLife ), RMC Internet Network Editor, Mr. Roger M. Christian strictly reports both each central issue and its various segments which all have been cleaned of political rethoric and spin. There are several state and national legislative bills which are being considered in various committees nation wide, and thus the imperative and important emphasis on just providing the facts assume their priorities in the publication of this site.
Nuclear proliferation, the problematic security twists involved from the emering nanotechnologies, why we are getting warmer, stem cell research, and the expansion of the internet posses several new challenges to both stable and emerging democracies. Thus in Scince, Technologies, Public Policy and Ethics [ http://salsadanza.tripod.com/science ]an attempt is being made to show how each of these components interrelate; and where from new ethical consciuousnes is likewise needed-the new emrging avant garde of science.
What is also clear, is that in the development of advance science, and the necessity to develop internal education systems of academia's newer challenges and academic programs to its pedagogy. Thus in this one example: The know how of how to develop a nuclear weapon is only a mild stepping stone to fully reviewing, knowing, and teaching quantum physics, as well as developing national clean nuclear energy systems. Thus in the example of Iran, there is great anxieties, as they know result of developing nuclear weapons will bring them a step closer to being technologically self-dependent, as this know how is a crucial steps in developing realiable nuclear energy systems, and at low costs too! There are similar twist and technolgocial turns with repects to nanotechnologies, as well as advancing industrial development while not disturbing environmental balance world wide.
These bring to fore the responses various leagislator within the US, both state and national, about control, the threat of terrorist exploitation of new technological advances, and the often confusing political power posturing state / national sociocultural ethos-which at times avoids the necessary science and comprehension of the technologies involve by the legislator themselves.
Thus the facts involve must be made clear, and this likewise means the removal of any political lense which may defuse the importance of essentail details in each technology under public policy review; this the cornerstone of responsiable editorial'ship.
