Getting started w/ Eclipse/Android dated 12/07, NSG
Tip: An easy way to add import packages to your project is to press Ctrl-Shift-O (Cmd-Shift-O, on Mac). This is an Eclipse shortcut that identifies missing packages based on your code and adds them for you.
A first hand look at building an Android application Did not work for me, skips steps, careful frame-by-frame examination might make this work for you, try target device 1.5

Global warming: Who are the leaders?

My question that I posted to site for them to pass onto Gordon Brown.

"Curbing global warming requires change of life style for western nations. My fellow citizens and I are ready. But where is the political leadership with the voice and the will to present this future. This future is a bright future with bicycles and public transportation and spending more time strolling with family and friends. Children will be taught to weed and cultivate victory gardens. Who are the leaders that will set an example and steer the new course?"

Avaaz reply: Thanks for RSVPing to today's phone conference with UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. This meeting with him is a great opportunity for us to engage with power as citizens around the world. And we'll keep him on his toes!
