MLK’s vision matters today for the 43 million Americans living in…

first_img Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 The Anatomy of Fear By Joshua Inwood and first published on theconversation.comOn April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, while fighting for a 10-cent wage increase for garbage workers. These efforts by King were part of a broader and more sustained initiative known as the Poor People’s Campaign.King was working to broaden the scope of the civil rights movement to include poverty and the end of the war in Vietnam. King and his leadership team planned to bring thousands of poor people to Washington, D.C., where they would camp out on the National Mall until Congress passed legislation to eradicate poverty.King was convinced that for the civil rights movement to achieve its goals, poverty needed to become a central focus of the movement. He believed the poor could lead a movement that would revolutionize society and end poverty. As King noted, “The only real revolutionary, people say, is a man who has nothing to lose. There are millions of poor people in this country who have little, or nothing to lose.”With over 43 million people living in poverty in the United States today, King’s ideas still hold much power.The Poor People’s CampaignIn the last three years of his life and ministry King had grown frustrated with the slow pace of reform and the lack of funding for anti-poverty programs. In 1966, for example, King moved to Chicago and lived in an urban slum to bring attention to the plight of the urban poor in northern cities. His experiences in the South had convinced him that elimination of poverty was important to winning the long-term battle for civil and social rights.It was also at this time that King began to think about leading a march to Washington, D.C., to end poverty. King explained the campaign saying,:“Then we poor people will move on Washington, determined to stay there until the legislative and executive branches of the government take serious and adequate action on jobs and income.”King was assassinated before he could lead the campaign. And while the effort continued, the campaign could not meet King’s goals of poverty elimination, universal access to health care and education, and a guaranteed income that would keep people out of poverty.Why it matters todayA homeless person in New York. Jeffrey Zeldman, CC BY-NC-NDAt a time when millions in the U.S. are poor and disenfranchised, the Poor People’s campaign remains as relevant for the U.S. as it was 50 years ago. Consider the evidence:At least 1.5 million households in the United States with about 3 million children are surviving on cash incomes of no more than $2 per day.A 2017 United Nations report found infant mortality rates in the U.S. to be the highest in the developed world. Children alone comprised 32.6 percent of all people in poverty.The World Income Database found that the U.S. has the highest rate of inequality among all Western countries.Making this situation worse, many of the welfare and poverty elimination programs have been cut back or eliminated. A recent Washington Post investigation found that extreme poverty has nearly doubled since major welfare reform efforts in the 1990s under then-President Bill Clinton.How can King’s ideas help today?At the core of King’s anti-poverty message were two key ideas. The first was a guarantee that the federal government would provide every able-bodied American with a job. The second was for the federal government to provide a national basic income that would ensure a minimum concrete sum of money for every American regardless of their employment status.In his 1967 speech at Stanford University, King argued that the time had come to “guarantee an annual minimum – and livable – income for every American family.” The idea was to ensure every U.S. citizen would be able to live above the poverty line. King was assassinated before he could present a fully developed policy proposal.Currently, several Nordic nations, most notably Finland, are considering such a proposal. Two economists, Debraj Ray and Kelle Moene have argued that a universal income has the potential to boost GDP and productivity. The premise is that if you give people who currently lack means more money to spend, they will contribute to the economy through increased consumption of goods and services.On the anniversary of King’s death, as Americans ponder the unfinished work of the Poor People’s Campaign, I believe a guaranteed national income is one idea that needs to be examined.Joshua Inwood is an associate professor in the Department of Geography and a research associate in the Rock Ethics Institute.

Ryan Kankowski finishes off a great Sharks try against the Lions

first_imgTuesday Aug 18, 2009 Ryan Kankowski finishes off a great Sharks try against the Lions The Natal Sharks held off large amounts of pressure from the Lions at Ellis Park this weekend, but managed to come away with a 30-19 Currie Cup win after scoring three tries away from home.The Lions actually dominated at times, but were 23-0 down with ten minutes left in the match, before they themselves scored three quick tries.The win for the Sharks takes their tally up to five unbeaten consecutively, keeping them in second place behind the Griquas.Their first try was a classic as they moved the ball from deep, beating defenders with great handling from both forwards and backs, then the deft stepping of the superb Ryan Kankowski beat a few big boys before he crossed for the try.The star Sharks number 8 was awarded the Man of the Match, but credited his team mates for the environment in which hes able to shine so brightly.Its very special playing for The Sharks, he said.Theyre a brilliant bunch of guys and its great to win with a team you enjoy playing with. Im very fortunate to be playing with such good players, they make my job so much easier.

Facebook introduces matched giving to its fundraising platform

first_imgIt also clearly explains how it works. “If you pledge to match $50 and raise $25, you’ll only pay $25. If you raise $100, you’ll pay $50.” Crisis ResponseFacebook has also announced more social good developments at its recent F8 developments conference.It has expanded its Crisis Response service, which it launched last year as a place where people can get information about recent crises and access Safety Check, Community Help and Fundraisers.Soon, people affected by a crisis are able to share firsthand accounts of timely information, like road closures and damage photos and videos, making it easier to get real-time updates. The feature will be “rolling out later this year”. Facebook Crisis Centre – sharing firsthand information Facebook removed charges for nonprofit fundraising in November 2017, so charities receive 100% of donations and matched pledges.In announcing the matched giving functionality, Facebook shared an example of a campaign.“David Smith lost his sister in a car accident in 2013, and this year for his birthday, he started a fundraiser for Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). He told family and friends that if he could raise $100, he would match their contribution. People rallied around the cause and raised $2,360 — more than 10x his original goal.”Although launched initially in the US, fundraisers in the UK and Europe have reported seeing the option available to them as individuals, but the roll-out is clearly not yet complete.To be clear, the matching option is only for individuals. Facebook pages (or organisations) can not offer a matched giving function. So this is not (yet) a tool for corporate fundraisers to exploit. Also, its roll-out has come too late for this year’s London Marathon event, so charities will have to wait until 2019 to see how well it can be used in that context. Facebook has started to allow charity supporters in the US to add a matched giving offer on the fundraising page they set up. They can pledge to match total donations from between $5 and $2,500.The option is now presented to individuals when they create a fundraising page for their selected charity.The pledge is made at the beginning of the campaign in the set-up options. Facebook makes it clear that the individual pays the pledged amount at the end of the fundraising campaign.

Students will be encouraged to set goals, complete tasks, grow their social-emotional intelligence, and create habits of self-reflection to help them reach success inside and outside the classroom.“Academic-based skills such as reading, writing, and math are very important, but so are social-emotional skills,” said HEC Director Ryan Eisenberg. “It is our job as educators to create students who are generous, respectful, optimistic, willing to try, tenacious, and honest with themselves and others.”During the first month of school, students will receive an orientation to become familiar with the GROWTH concepts. They will then be given individual plans based on their skill area needs. Their goals will be posted and integrated into the school day. As students make progress on their goals, they will be rewarded with privileges, such as an overnight trip or a celebratory dinner with staff.But the pay-off is even greater, said Eisenberg. “While we link privileges to GROWTH, the focus is more on students internalizing the importance of personal development.HEC believes in creating lasting change, and we think the GROWTH system will have a lifelong benefit to our students.”Also new at HEC this school year is a graphic design class. Students will be instructed on media design, T-shirt design, and animation projects. The school’s reading intervention program, Reading Rocks, is also being updated for the academic year with a software component that will more directly link the program with classroom lessons. Now in its second year, the reading program has been very successful. Out of 19 students participating in the program last year, four improved their reading by one grade level and five students by two grade levels. This year, HEC expects some 30 students will take advantage of the program.HEC is a K-12 therapeutic residential and day school that offers individualized education for students with social-emotional, learning, and/or behavioral challenges. HEC is one of four core programs of Hillsides. Hillsides, headquartered in Pasadena, is a premier provider dedicated to improving the well-being and functioning of children, youth, and families in need throughout Los Angeles County.

Murder accused was supplying drugs from her prison cell

first_imgFacebook Twitter Linkedin TAGSdrugsLimerick Prison Councillor warns of crack cocaine in West Limerick by Andrew CareySign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up [email protected] LITHUANIAN nurse was supplying drugs from her Limerick prison cell where she was being held on a charge alleging that she murdered her mother on Christmas Eve.Greta Dudko (36) of Carpenterstown, Dublin 15 was in Limerick prison on October 9, 2012 when officers searched her cell and found heroin, cannabis herb and resin along with a quantity of prescription tablets and a mobile phone disguised as a BMW car key.Limerick District Court was told that Ms Dudko was arrested and while she admitted possession of the phone and the drugs, she did not admit to supplying them to others .Inspector Dermot O’Connor told Judge Eugene O’Kelly that Ms Dudko said she concealed the items and brought them into the prison because she was “in fear of threats and being bullied”.Pleading guilty to the offences, defence counsel Mark Stacke said his client was on remand on a charge alleging that she murdered her mother on December 24, 2010.He said the matters before the court were completely out of character for Ms Dudko who had no previous convictions and was a smart lady who has been utilising her time well.“She had been on remand for 33 months now and in that time she has studied and attained many diplomas and qualifications. She even translates for the Prison Governor and is happy to do so. She also has a history of work and is a qualified nurse”, he said.He added that Ms Dudko was “under immense pressure to bring the phone in for others but remained silent through fear”.Judge O’Kelly said that it was a very “sophisticated device” and one that would be difficult to detect unless fully examined.While Ms Dudko claimed her family were threatened while she was in prison, Inspector O’Connor said there was no evidence to support this as she “failed to elaborate on this in interview”.She had been in the Dochas Centre for women in Dublin but was taken to Limerick Prison after she had returned from a weekly visit with her seven-year-old son.Remarking that the ability of people in prison to get access to drugs was widespread, Judge O’Kelly said that “those who smuggle items were complicit and the court took a very serious view of it.“She was caught with a wide variety of drugs in Limerick Prison after being given access to her son. It compromises the integrity of the prison security system to smuggle phones in – and this one in particular when disguised in the form of a car key. It must have come as some surprise to the officers.Imposing a five month prison term for the possession of heroin for sale or supply, Judge O’Kelly said he “had doubts as to the reality she was being threatened as she remained silent”.A four month jail term was also imposed for the possession of a mobile phone while in custody.“Ms Dudko failed to elaborate and never made a complaint about claims she was being bullied and threatened. The integrity of the prison security is dependant on people not smuggling things in”, he said, before backdating the prison sentences to October 22, 2013.

Examining community health workers’ role in fighting HIV in Africa

first_img Read Full Story Community health worker (CHW) programs can play a key role in providing HIV services in Africa. But such programs are often fragmented, poorly integrated into national health systems, and lack support, according to a new study from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.The study was published Aug. 8, 2017 in PLOS Medicine.Researchers interviewed government officials, expert observers, and donors in four African countries — Lesotho, Mozambique, South Africa, and Swaziland — between August 2015 and May 2016, and looked at published studies, country reports, national health plans, and policies. After analyzing all the data, they offered five policy recommendations to strengthen and sustain the role of CHWs in providing HIV services.They recommended that decision-makers in countries where HIV is commonly found further develop government CHW programs; officially recognize nongovernmental CHW programs; standardize CHW training, incentives, and services; provide an organizational structure dedicated to community health initiatives; involve the community in decision-making; and provide adequate and long-term resources for CHW programs for HIV.Lead author of the study was Harvard Chan School researcher Jan-Walter De Neve. Other Harvard Chan authors included Kathryn Andrews, Chantelle Boudreaux, Pascal Geldsetzer, Maria Vaikath, Till Bärnighausen, and Thomas Bossert.last_img read more

Georgia Chickens Gaining

first_img“Truly, there’s 2.5 billion pounds of litter produced every year that must be dealtwith,” he said. In 1995, Georgia became the first state in history to produce more than 5 billionpounds of chicken in one year. Georgia poultry firms now process 21 million chickens every week. Savage said severalplants are expanding either processing facilities or their production on the farm. “If the processor plans to cut up the chicken, it has to be larger,” Savage said.”Processors are running a lot of five- and six-pound birds through the line.” Overall poultry income made up nearly one-third of Georgia’s total agriculturalincome. Savage figures that by the year 2000, Georgia farmers will easily produce 6 billionpounds of chicken meat annually. He attributes part of that growth to chicken’s value. “That’s a lot of meat,” said Stan Savage, a poultry scientist with the University ofGeorgia Extension Service. “Georgia farmers are not only producing more birds everyyear, but they’re producing larger birds for a growing market.” With more and more chickens comes a natural by-product: litter. But row-crop and livestock farmers call it black gold. It makes excellent fertilizer forcotton, corn, grasses and small grains. “It’s great on any crop that requires a lot ofnitrogen,” Savage said. center_img “Georgia’s real advantage over other chicken-producing states like Arkansas andAlabama is that we’ve just got more room to expand,” Savage said. Consumer demand for processed parts is on the rise, too. Boneless, skinless chickenpieces make meal preparation quicker and easier. That’s what shoppers want more of –meats that make their lives easier. For every pound of meat Georgia farmers grow, Savage said, they have to contendwith a half-pound of litter. Demand for chicken meat has grown 3 percent to 5 percent every year for the past 15to 20 years. Broiler houses are popping up all over south Georgia to supply chickens to processingplants. “We’re expanding away from the traditional poultry-producing areas in northGeorgia, particularly around Gainesville,” he said. “Chicken is the most economical meat per pound,” he said. “Consumers can get eitherwhole birds or parts at various levels of processing.” Georgia farmers raise chickens in 95 counties. In broiler income alone, Georgiafarmers topped $1.7 billion in 1995, the latest year for which figures are available.last_img read more
