ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Nearly two tons of trinkets, statues and jewelry crafted from the tusks of at least 100 slaughtered elephants are heading for a rock crusher in New York City's Central Park to demonstrate the state's commitment to smashing the illegal ivory trade.[...] state environmental officials, who are partnering with the Wildlife Conservation Society and Tiffany & Co. for Thursday's "Ivory Crush," say no price justifies slaughtering elephants for their tusks.Last year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service instituted a near-total ban on the domestic commercial ivory trade and barred sales across state lines.Since August 2014, New York law has prohibited the sale, purchase, trade or distribution of anything made from elephant or mammoth ivory or rhinoceros horn, except in limited situations with state approval.The World Wildlife Fund says the illegal wildlife trade not only threatens animal populations, but also endangers national security by funding terrorist cells.

Aligning an organization’s website with its vision for the future
Friday Sep 30, 2016
The Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) is the premier institution for advanced Jewish learning in North America. We have been helping JTS bring aspects of their vision for the future to life during an exciting period of change and growth. We recently created a new website for JTS, launched this past April at www.jtsa.edu. The new site tells their story in simpler, more compelling terms, features responsive design, and uses marketing automation tools and a content strategy to help them connect with students, staff, donors, alumni, and others.
