Avril Lavigne has launched the Avril Lavigne Foundation which will partner with The Make A Wish Foundation, Easter Seals, and the Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis. The pop star said these organizations were chosen because they specifically assist children and youth, the age of most of her fans. As part of setting up her foundation, Lavigne attended conference sessions at the Clinton Global Initiative on empowering women, sustainable farming, and the use of social media to employ people with disabilities.

Teradata is a winner in the California 2010 CalRecycle Waste Reduction Award Program—WRAP—for incorporating waste reduction, reuse, recycling, and buying recycled materials into its daily business activities. The recycling program at Teradata’s San Diego facility has reduced the amount of material entering the landfill by more than 2,729 tons since its inception in 1994. The WRAP awards, sponsored by the California Integrated Waste Management Board, recognize state organizations making outstanding efforts to reduce non-hazardous waste. Teradata Corporation focuses on achieving enterprise agility in sustainability through its database software, enterprise data warehousing, and enterprise analytics.
