houstonchronicle.com / Tue, 23 Jan 2018 03:00:00 UT
WASHINGTON - The federal government is back in business and hurricane relief for Texas and other disaster-stricken states is back on the table. The agreement that ended a three-day government shutdown Monday breathed new life into a crowded backlog of issues, including a long-delayed disaster relief package that got caught up in a broader funding dispute. The Senate approved the deal 81-18, with all but a handful of holdouts in both parties. The House followed suit shortly thereafter by a mostly party-line vote of 266-150. Only two Texans crossed party lines in the House: Democrats Henry Cuellar of Laredo and Vicente Gonzalez of McAllen, who voted to end the shutdown. President Donald Trump signed the bill late Monday.

mysanantonio.com / Mon, 1 Dec 2014 13:34:26 UT
For the first time in nearly 100 years, Girl Scouts of the USA will allow its young go-getters to push their wares using a mobile app or personalized websites. There are important e-lessons here, scout officials said, such as better articulating and tracking goals, learning to handle customers and money in a new way, and more efficiently processing credit card information. "A lot of people have asked, 'What took you so long to get online?' We spend a lot of time thinking how do we make this safe, scalable and smart," Kelly M. Parisi, chief communications executive for Girl Scouts of the USA, said at a recent demonstration for select media. For web-based sales, scouts customize their pages, using their first names only, and email prospective customers with links to click on for orders. The mobile platform offers tabs for tracking sales and allows for the sale of bundles of different kinds of cookies. Girl Scouts use their cookie money to pay for community service work or troop activities such as camping and other trips. [...] personal information is as protected as any digits out there, for both the scouts and customers, using encryption in some cases.
