* Certificate of incorporation

* Government memos

* Original share certificate

* Original government receipt

Originally posted on CBS Sacramento:

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – At just 4-years-old, Zoey Vasquez has a form of kidney cancer and just started chemotherapy at the UC Davis Medical Center.

At her side is Angus, a special dog who is part of a study on the benefits of pet therapy.

“The kids who get the dogs, they love them, they’re happy … And Angus is such a happy dog,” said Melinda Beckham, a charge nurse for UC Davis Pediatrics.

Nurses get to see how the dogs affect their young patients while at the hospital – but Zoey’s mom sees Angus’ positive effects way before the treatment is underway.

“She didn’t want to come in because she thought he wasn’t here.  She said, ‘I don’t want to go in if angus isn’t here,’” said Corina Vasquez, Zoey’s mother.

Peaceful protesters in Taipei, April 28

As the Sunflower Movement stated upon leaving Taiwan‘s legislative chamber, they would return. The movement never had “tunnel vision”, but was focused on a long list of grievances. The secret “black box” trade negotiation between China and US Military ally Taiwan was only the one straw on the camel’s back.

In this recent round of government v peaceful assembly, the topic is the island’s controversial fourth nuclear power plant. Especially after Fukushima in 2011, the earthquake-plagued people of Taiwan want nothing to do with nuclear energy. So it seems, the government doesn’t care.
