Rep Lucido announces summer reading contest

first_img Tags: Rep for a Day, Summer Reading Contest 29Jun Rep. Lucido announces summer reading contest Categories: Lucido News,Lucido Photoscenter_img State Rep. Peter Lucido will host a summer reading contest for local elementary school students in the 36th House District. The winner will have the unique opportunity to join Rep. Lucido at the Capitol in Lansing and serve as State Representative for a day.Rep. Lucido hopes that the contest will encourage students to keep their minds active and their reading skills sharp over the summer and beyond.“Reading is vitally important for the future success of our children,” said Rep. Lucido, R-Shelby Township. “Getting our kids excited about reading is more than just preparing them for the school year ahead, but encouraging the practice of this skill at an early age instills a habit which can benefit their future beyond academia.”Lily Urban of Shelby Township joins Rep. Lucido on the House floor earlier this year as the 2015 summer reading contest winner.All students in the 36th House District who are enrolled in the first through fifth grades are eligible to participate and must track their reading on special bookmarks that have been distributed to schools and local libraries. Readers who have finished 10 books can drop off the completed bookmarks to their local library by Sept. 1. There is no limit to the number of bookmarks that can be submitted, so long as each bookmark lists 10 completed books.Rep. Lucido will draw names to determine the winners of the contest, who will then be invited with their families to the Capitol this fall to act as state representatives for a day.“I am so excited to be hosting this contest again this year,” Rep. Lucido said. “It was a great turnout and I had a blast with the contest winner, Lily Urban of Shelby Township, who joined me on the House floor, participated in mock committee meetings and toured the Capitol with her family.”Contest bookmarks are available to download and print on www.RepPeterLucido.com and are available throughout the summer at the following participating libraries:Shelby Township Library51680 Van DykeShelby Twp, MI 48316Graubner Library65821 Van DykeWashington, MI 48095Kezar Branch Library107 Church St.Romeo, MI 48065For questions regarding the contest, please do not hesitate to contact Rep.

In This Issue ECB keeps rates unchanged Euro

first_imgIn This Issue.*ECB keeps rates unchanged. *Euro and Gold rally! *FOMC has “other policy moves”? *India joins other Asian currency moves higher.And, Now, Today’s Pfennig For Your Thoughts!A Jobs Jamboree Friday!Good day.  And a Happy Friday to one and all! How about that win for our Rams on national television last night? WOW!  This is the first time in over 8 years, that we have a winning record (3-2) at any point of the season! So, you can understand my excitement a little, hopefully. Otherwise, you’re stamping your foot and saying, Come on Chuck, get on with this letter!Well. today’s the day the markets have been waiting for. the U.S. non-farm employment data, or, as I’ve always called it. The Jobs Jamboree!  I saw earlier in the week that the “experts” were forecasting an increase of jobs created in September of 115,000.  And then after the ADP report printed their version and showed that the believed that 162,000 jobs were created, the “experts, changed their call to 125,000. When will they ever learn? The ADP hasn’t given us a good indication of the non-farm number since its introduction.  So, given this information, I’ll have to change my earlier thought that 125,000 jobs were created and say, that only 105,000 were created.No matter the number, 115,000, 125,000 or whatever, it’s not enough! Yes, it’s better than job losses, but, we can’t grow our economy with less than about 250,000 per month. One of the key things to look for each month has become the data that reports the number of people that have stopped looking for work, thus in the Gov’t’s infinite wisdom (NOT!) they say they no longer count as unemployed.  So, the unemployment rate drops, and the Gov’t throws a party to celebrate, when in reality, it’s all smoke and mirrors.Long time readers know that I prefer to look at the Avg Hourly Earnings and Avg Weekly Hours Worked components of the Jobs Jamboree.  And here’s where we can really learn stuff, for what good does 115,000 new jobs do if they are min. wage jobs with little benefits?  I know, it’s better than standing in the unemployment line, but maybe it isn’t.  Think about that. a person’s pride has to come in there somewhere, right?   OK. so, this wage stuff is where I see a real problem for the U.S. workers. Wages have been pretty stagnant for a number of years now.  for instance year-on-year we’ll see an increase in wages of 1.8%…  That’s not going to keep up with inflation, folks.OK. So, I spent quite a bit of time on the Jobs Jamboree this morning. Let’s take a look at the currencies.  Yesterday, I told you about the mini-rally that the euro was trading in. Well, that mini-rally lasted throughout the day, and by the time I left for home, which is much earlier in the day than I used to leave, the euro had rallied back to 1.30.  And Gold had added to its $10 gain in the morning to reach its highest level of 2012 at $1,792.This morning, the euro is still trading a bit above 1.30, but Gold has backed off $1,792, but just by a couple of dollars.  Speaking of that high for the year in Gold, last year I did some research and presented it to you all, that showed how Gold’s low level for each year had been its price in January.  Well, that pattern is holding true again this year. yes, there are 3 months left, but once Gold hits the psychological level of $1,800, all heck could break loose. I read some research yesterday on this, and the charts show that a break above $1,800 could establish a new trading range, forming a base for Gold to test the previous highs.  WOW! That’s pretty bullish. and actually has something behind it rather than the reports from the Big Banks that say they see Gold at “X”.The European Central Bank (ECB) and the Bank of England (BOE) both kept their rates unchanged and didn’t announce any new plans yesterday.  Recall I said that the ECB had the scope to cut rates, but I think ECB President, Mario Draghi, is waiting for Spain to request Eurozone assistance before he uses one of the last arrows in his quiver.  And I find that to be a good strategy.So, the markets rewarded the euro for the non-rate cut move. That’s different than I thought they would go with the news, so once again the markets have changed horses in the middle of the stream.  This morning, German Factory Orders were weaker than expected, and that caused a little slippage in the euro, but not much, as everyone is focused on the Jobs Jamboree in the U.S. this morning.Did you see the color of the U.S. Factory Orders for August?  Well, in case your local or national cable news outlet didn’t bring this to your attention, U.S. Factory Orders in August fell -5.9% !  That’s awful folks. no wonder jobs in August were only up 96,000 (with 87,000 added by the BLS from the Birth / Death model)  It’s too bad this data isn’t more up to date, so we could see if this data rebounded or not in September. I have the feeling it didn’t, but. you never know who’s cooking the books!The Fed’s meeting minutes from their meeting in September printed yesterday.  All but one member voted for the new round of Quantitative Easing (QE).  The actions taken by the FOMC in September were fairly aggressive and the Fed noted that if the outlook for the labor market “does not improve substantially”, they stand ready to undertake further QE or “employ its other policy tools” until such an improvement is achieved.  Hmmm. wonder what those “other policy tools are”?  I’m of the opinion that QE is the last chance saloon for central bank policy tools. So, now I’m intrigued as to what those “other policy tools” could be.  Well, not to be gloom and doom, but it’s my opinion that we’re going to get to see the Fed Heads implement those “other policy tools” whatever they might be!The Commodity Currencies rebounded with the euro yesterday. These currencies that include: The Aussie dollar (A$), Canadian dollar / loonie, and New Zealand dollar / kiwi, had been pushed back earlier this week when the weaker than expected Chinese Manufacturing data printed. But they are rallying this morning, and that always does my heart some good to see these currencies rally, for when they do, the risk taking is back, and the optimism for global growth has returned.So. which way does the dollar move today, after the Jobs data prints? Well, since the markets changed horses in the middle of the stream on us in the Eurozone, they will probably do so here to. So, I think we’ll get back to conventional thinking here, and if the data is better than expected (125,000) the dollar will be rewarded, and sold if the data is weaker than expected. Since I think the data will be weaker than expected, I’m looking for the currencies to rally further today.  Of course that will all be thrown out the window, should the data come in stronger than expected, which you can’t rule out, given the BLS’s propensity to make adjustments to the numbers.Don’t know if you’ve been charting the currencies in the currency round-up each day, or weekly, etc. but, if you have, you’ve probably noticed the gains in the Indian rupee this past week. Yes, we’ve seen these strong moves in the rupee before only to see them wiped out.  This move doesn’t really have legs to run on  yet, as it is moving higher on the flow of funds into India. Apparently, foreign flows into the Indian stock market have been very large, as investors around the world look for bargains and yield. We all know these flows can be reversed in a heartbeat, so be careful here.The Asian currencies as a whole though are looking pretty good these days, and with things in the Eurozone calming down a bit for now, these currencies are recovering nicely.Then There Was This. All this week I’ve harped on and on about price manipulation in Gold & Silver. a reader sent me this story that had some great data and facts that back up what I’ve been saying. from wealthcycles.com.  “Many know that as part of the Dodd-Frank Act, Congress directed the CFTC (Commodity Futures Trading Commission) to impose limits on speculative positions in physical commodity futures and related contracts. This means silver and gold shorting may become more difficult.One reason this rule change is important is that institutional traders that hold large positions in commodities futures in some cases have the ability to skew the markets. For example, in a relatively small market such as silver futures, large short positions can have the effect of artificially suppressing prices. Currently JPMorgan Chase, which inherited a large short position in silver futures when it bought Bear Stearns in 2008, is believed to control about 35% of silver futures contracts–a large enough position to hold considerable sway over market prices. The Dodd-Frank rule change was intended to limit gold and silver futures positions held by a single investor to no more than 10% of the market.”Chuck again. Too bad a U.S. district judge in Washington sided with the big banks to prevent the position limits from coming into effect.  The CFTC had received 15,000 letters that “generally were supportive of the proposal”  So once again, the will of We The People has been pushed aside. shame, shame, shame.To recap. It’s a Jobs Jamboree Friday, and the day the markets have waited all week for. The experts have upped their forecast based on the ADP number from Wednesday, to +125,000. Chuck thinks it will be 105,000. The mini-rally in the euro yesterday, carried the single unit to just above 1.30, where it has stayed overnight and through the morning. The ECB left rates unchanged, thus giving the euro some help in the rally yesterday.  The Commodity Currencies have rebounded a bit, and the Asian Currencies are stronger.  Gold reached its high level for 2012 yesterday at $1,792.Currencies today 10/5/12.

How to Get Rich Surely The strategy I recommend

first_img How to Get Rich Surely The strategy I recommend is faster and more fun than scrimping and saving and much, much more likely to work than any sort of get-rich-quick scheme. I’d like to illustrate my strategy by telling you how I did once make more than a million dollars in the lottery—without buying a single ticket. In the 1980s, my business partner had an idea. We would publish a magazine featuring stories of lottery winners and essays by crazy professors with theories about how to beat the odds. At one time, we had 100,000 subscribers paying us $39 per year. You can do the math. It didn’t happen overnight. It took years and thousands of man-hours to make it work. It was the result of a good idea, lots of experience, and lots of hard work. And perhaps a touch of luck. This is how you get rich surely. You don’t sit around dreaming or throwing what little money you have at ideas. You work hard and smart to earn good money, and you put a large percentage of that money aside to build a business, acquire property, and invest in smart and safe opportunities when they arrive. This is the way the great industrialists made their fortunes 100-plus years ago in America. And it is the way many entrepreneurs and professionals make their money today. When I wrote Seven Years to Seven Figures, I interviewed eight people who had developed multimillion-dollar wealth in under seven years. I asked them exactly what they did. Ultimately, I was searching for a common denominator. As it turned out, I came up with three things that they had in common. They had all: 1. Learned a financially valuable skill 2. Started a business in an up-trending market niche 3. Spent considerably less than they made and saved the difference This validates what experience tells me: if you are willing to put in the time and follow proven principles of wealth-building, you can become wealthy in a relatively short amount of time—even if you are broke or in debt right now. Fortune magazine predicts that 1,700 people will become millionaires each day into the 2020s. If you get rich surely, the way I suggest, I think you could be one of them. Regards, Mark Ford P.S. Over the last five years, I’ve worked with a team of bright people to develop essays, reports, and how-to manuals on building wealth surely. They’re based on my own personal experience doing these things myself or coaching others through them. I can promise you this: It doesn’t matter whether you’re 60 years old or a youngster, rich or poor, Harvard educated or a high school dropout, handicapped or able-bodied—this program is the best in the world if you want to build a seven-figure net worth in the next seven years.

Editor’s note: Today, we’re featuring a powerful essay from our good friend Mark Ford. Mark has built dozens of businesses from scratch…creating millions of dollars of wealth in the process. He knows more about building wealth than just about anyone. In this classic piece, he describes the three ways to get rich… Is it possible to begin with nothing and acquire wealth in America? Is it still possible today? I’ve been studying that question for almost 20 years. And the answer is unequivocal: It is. It is still possible for ordinary, wage-earning Americans to become wealthy. From my research, I have seen that there are basically three ways to get rich: 1. Slowly (in 30 to 40 years) 2. Quickly (overnight) 3. Surely (in seven years or less) How to Get Rich Slowly The Millionaire Next Door, a best-selling book from 1996, revealed that the typical American millionaire acquires their fortunes by scrimping and saving. Just about anyone can get rich this way. You simply put a reasonable percentage of your income into an ordinary investment program for 30 or 40 years, and voila! You are rich! The median income in America was $56,516 in 2015. If you invest 10% of that income ($5,652) at a compounded return of 10.2% (the S&P 500’s track record from 1915–2015) over 30 years, you’ll end up with over $1,000,000. This is due to the “miracle” of compound interest, but it is in no way miraculous. It is a certainty based on historical averages and simple math. But there is a hitch. You have to start relatively young. If you start, for example, when you are 50, you will have only $206,712 accumulated by the time you are 65. If you start when you are 60, well… You get the picture. Getting rich this way doesn’t require guts or brains. All you need is a commitment to work hard to make enough money to save every month… and the discipline to keep socking it away. How to Get Rich Quickly Acquiring wealth by scrimping and saving is a sure thing, but it does take a long, long time. Even if we have the time, most of us don’t have the patience for it. But getting rich quickly—the ultimate financial aphrodisiac. Is it possible? The answer: yes, but only if you are very, very lucky. We read and hear about it all the time. A chicken farmer in Idaho discovers a Rembrandt in his barn. A barber in New Jersey hits the state lotto. And the one I like best—some guy made a million bucks by investing $5,000 in a penny stock! Those are the stories. But the odds of any of these things happening to you are incredibly slim. I don’t gamble because I know there are many other ways of entertaining myself that are less addictive and less costly.last_img read more

Theres more bad news about the nations devastati

first_imgThere’s more bad news about the nation’s devastating opioid epidemic.In just one year, overdoses from opioids jumped by about 30 percent, according to a report released Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.The overall increase in opioid overdoses seen in hospital emergency rooms between the third quarter of 2016 and the third quarter of 2017 occurred across the nation. Some parts of the country experienced far greater increases, while a few have reported declines, the analysis shows.”We have an emergency on our hands,” says acting CDC Director Anne Schuchat. “The fast-moving opioid overdose epidemic continues and is accelerating.”The largest regional increase occurred in the Midwest, which saw a 69.7 percent jump in opioid overdoses, according to the report. The jump was driven in part by a 109 percent increase in Wisconsin. Overdoses increased 40.3 percent in the West, 21.3 percent in the Northeast, 20.2 percent in the Southwest and 14 percent in the Southeast.”We saw, sadly, that in every region, in every age group of adults, in both men and women, overdoses from opioids are increasing,” Schuchat says.The latest data could underestimate the overdoses, because many people who overdose never end up in the emergency room. “It might be even worse,” Schuchat says.The report didn’t specify why overdoses vary across the country. But one factor is probably the differences in availability of newer, highly potent illegal opioids, such as fentanyl, which have been flooding the country in recent years, Schuchat says.”We think that the number of people addicted to opioids is relatively stable. But the substances are more dangerous than five years ago,” Schuchat says. “The margin of error for taking one of these substances is small now and people may not know what they have.”The supply of those more dangerous drugs is increasing faster in some parts of the country than in others, which may help explain the geographic variations, Schuchat says.”Overall as a nation, we are still failing to adequately respond to the opioid addiction epidemic,” says Dr. Andrew Kolodny, co-director of opioid policy research at Brandeis University. “It is concerning that 20 years into this epidemic, it is still getting worse. The number of Americans experiencing opioid overdoses is still increasing.”Although the Trump administration recently declared the epidemic to be an emergency, a significant increase in funding is urgently needed to treat Americans addicted to opioids. Kolodny says.”It’s kind of like pointing to a burning building and saying, ‘Oh, there’s a fire there. There’s an emergency.’ And then not calling the fire department and watching it burn down,” Kolodny says. “There’s been a lot of talk from Congress and from the administration and a recognition that we need to do something about this problem. But nothing yet has happened.”Others say the key is integrating addiction treatment better into the health care system. For example, emergency room staff need better training to make sure people with substance-use disorder get follow-up addiction treatment, says Jessica Hulsey Nickel, president and chief executive officer of the Addiction Policy Forum. Too often, addicts are simply revived and sent home without follow-up care, only to overdose again, she says.”We can use this near-death experience — use it as moment to change that person’s life,” Nickel says.The latest analysis is an attempt by the CDC to track the opioid epidemic more closely, Schuchat says. Previously, the agency looked at death from opioids, which lag behind reports from emergency rooms.”We wanted more timely information,” Schuchat says.The analysis was based on about 91 million emergency room visits that occurred between July 2016 and September 2017, including 142,557 visits that were suspected opioid overdoses.That survey showed an increase of 29.7 percent in 52 jurisdictions in 45 states between July through September 2016 and the same period in 2017, according to the report.The researchers also analyzed 45 million emergency department visits that occurred in 16 states during the same period, which included 119,198 suspected opioid overdoses.That analysis showed a 34.5 percent increase between the same periods in 2016 and 2017. But those increases varied dramatically from state to state, even within a region.For example, overdoses increased 105 percent in Delaware, compared with 80.6 percent in Pennsylvania and 34 percent in Maine. Overdoses may have actually slightly decreased in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. In Kentucky, the CDC’s analysis showed a 15 percent drop in overdoses. Copyright 2018 NPR.

Its a question that charities often debate How s

first_imgIt’s a question that charities often debate: How should their fund-raising ads portray the people they’re trying to help?If the ads display graphic human suffering to elicit donations, they run the risk of exploiting the subjects or making them look helpless.If the ads are more upbeat — showing aid recipients who are smiling, for example — they may ignore the subject’s strife and put the power to transform the subject’s life in the hands of rich, Western donors.While this dilemma is often discussed among charity professionals, the debate hasn’t always included the people in the images — the aid recipients themselves.So a group of researchers wanted to turn the tables. What do those who are supported by aid think? That’s the topic of a new survey, “Which Image Do You Prefer? A Study Of Visual Communications In Six African Countries.”The findings show a mixed bag of reactions from the survey respondents to 10 ads — but the most common emotion was sadness.”Right now, I feel like we are inferiors as a continent. It’s as if we are always begging,” said one 22-year-old Ethiopian man. “I understand that there are some of our people who are in need, who cannot even have a meal a day. But are we the only ones to whom that happens? The Western countries have problems, too.”Researchers from the University of East Anglia and Radi-Aid, a charity watchdog project of the Norwegian Students’ and Academics’ International Assistance Fund (SAIH), surveyed 74 people who live in communities supported by aid in Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, South Africa, Uganda and Zambia.The participants were asked to share their perceptions of ads from international aid groups like Oxfam, Save the Children and CARE. Three ads featured a positive subject — a smiling child, for example — three negative, three neutral and one without a person in it.A selection of responses were published anonymously in the report, as is standard practice with surveys, says David Girling, coauthor of the study and a lecturer at the School of International Development at the University of East Anglia.One of the favorites was from a global education charity called Dubai Cares. A little boy with a big smile holds a handmade yellow truck. The text on the ad says “I can teach you how to make a car from a plastic jug. Can you teach me to read?””I love this [Dubai Cares ad], it shows that Africa has something to give as much as most of the adverts that show Africa to be in a place where they always have to ask and always look up to other countries to help. We also have something we can give out, that is why I like this one.” – Female, 22, ZambiaAnother favorite came from Save the Children. A child refugee fleeing conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is shown in a glass box, as if she were a museum artifact. The text reads, “We must make this a thing of the past.””I like the Save the Children advert. Because it depicts that these people have no home. They have no shelter and no refuge. They have no place where they can go or nobody they can look up to.” – Female, 52, MalawiOne of the lowest-ranked ads came from CARE International U.K. It depicts a child in a ragged T-shirt with a sad expression, carrying a small jug of water. One woman said she wanted to know the story behind the picture.”If you look at the child in the CARE advert, she is carrying a container of water, but we don’t know why … It has been [portrayed] as if the girl is suffering, but we don’t know because this is just a picture … I understand that maybe … if you bring such a picture, someone will feel sorry and give money.” – Female, 54, MalawiIn an email statement to NPR, Shabnam Amini from CARE International U.K. responded: “The CARE advert reviewed in Radi-Aid’s report is from 2013 … [and] is no longer used by CARE. While there is limited space in a print advert to tell somebody’s story, CARE ensured that additional information about the context and detail of Elsa’s story was held online at the time.”Other criticisms of the ads overall included a lack of diversity in age groups, ethnicity and occupation.”Out of 10 pictures, eight of them have used children. So why are they using children? And most of the children they are using are black. There are also white kids who are suffering. Why focus on kids as though it is the kids who are doing poverty? Why not cover their parents, or what they eat and where they live?” – Female, 48, South AfricaOne of the most heart-wrenching aspects of the survey was how sad the advertisements made the participants feel, says Girling. He traveled to a focus group taking place in Johannesburg and observed everyone as they looked over the ads for the first time.”People sat there shaking their heads in silence,” he says. “They felt sad that people in their own countries were suffering, and they didn’t have the ability to help them.””I went back to my hotel after that feeling quite choked myself,” he adds.Even though the images elicited feelings of sorrow, 71 percent of the respondents found that the ads were an accurate representation of Africa’s state of affairs.”If I look at all of these pictures that are in front of me, they are the things that are really going on in Africa. It’s really, really going on. You can see some countries fighting against each other, you can see some sickness too, you can see some people will be happy, so many different things.” – Male, 32, GhanaAnd the respondents generally agreed that using “negative imagery” — what the report defines as images of a person visibly suffering from war, famine or other crises — is an effective way “to pull on heartstrings to elicit a donation,” says Girling.”They said they need all the help they can get,” says Girling, who attended a few focus groups in person. “As long as the images were an accurate representation [of the issue] and didn’t exploit people, and the images didn’t involve nudity or bloodshed, then they were OK for [sad] pictures to be used.”That surprised Beathe Øgård, president of SAIH and the report’s co-author. These are precisely the types of images that her project Radi-Aid have been trying to eliminate from the aid sector.”Stereotypes and over-simplification [of development problems] create a skewed view of how Westerners look at Africa,” she says.But perhaps, she adds, it’s time “to start a new debate and reflect upon the findings we’ve seen. It should be possible to show both negative and positive imagery.” Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit https://www.npr.org.last_img read more

A series of offensive remarks made by a disabled M

first_imgA series of offensive remarks made by a disabled MP about other minority groups and women should end his political career, according to members of a disabled women’s collective.Sisters of Frida was among disabled groups and activists who spoke to Disability News Service (DNS) this week following revelations that Labour’s Jared O’Mara, now aged 35, had posted a string of homophobic, misogynist and racist comments on websites when he was in his 20s.The disabled MP was forced to resign from the Commons women and equalities committee after he apologised and admitted posting the comments, which had emerged through the political blog Guido Fawkes.But new concerns then emerged about further offensive comments O’Mara (pictured) was alleged to have made to a woman in a nightclub just seven months ago, comments he is reported to have denied making.Labour subsequently suspended him from the party and launched an inquiry into that incident, which is also likely to investigate the historic online comments.There has been little sympathy for O’Mara from prominent disabled campaigners this week.Eleanor Lisney, one of the founders of the disabled women’s collective Sisters of Frida, said they believed that O’Mara’s political career should now be over, although it was “up to his constituents” to decide on his future.But she added: “We don’t think he should be an MP if he has those kind of views.“He should know from lived experience how it feels like to have those kind of remarks said about you.”She said Sisters of Frida had ruled out any engagement with O’Mara, and added: “We don’t want to have anything to do with him.”She said members of Sisters of Frida were “disappointed” and “really surprised” that O’Mara managed to become an MP after previously making such misogynist, racist and homophobic comments.She said: “We can’t accept that kind of attitude. It’s not whether he said it 15 years ago or whether he said it now. It’s just not acceptable.”Lisney said Sisters of Frida believed the claims made by the woman who said O’Mara had directed offensive remarks at her in a nightclub earlier this year.And she said O’Mara had compounded the seriousness of those remarks by then calling the woman a liar.Stephen Brookes, a coordinator of the Disability Hate Crime Network, supported Labour’s decision to suspend O’Mara.He said that, as a disabled person, O’Mara should have been more aware of other equality issues.He said: “We must all remember that it wasn’t just a single throwaway remark or misguided joke.“If negative comments had been made about him or disability by one of the groups he has demeaned there would have been an outcry from all of us.“Seems we have someone who is only really sorry because they have been caught out. His suspension is absolutely justified.”Deborah King, co-founder of Disability Politics UK, said: “Jared O’Mara is entitled to due process and a fair hearing.“We will know after that whether he can be an important voice for disabled people in parliament.”She added: “Diversity and inclusion should be part of all politicians’ core values. Politicians need to be sensitive to all groups in society. The key words are dignity and respect.“All MPs need to get some good quality training which involves role play and self-assessment, not just a lecture.”Rebecca Boot, a disabled Labour party member, told DNS: “Jared O’Mara said some inexcusable things, which no one should be defending.“He says he no longer holds those views, but he needs to follow that up with substantive action.“All minority communities have experienced people just paying lip service to ‘change’ and are rightly sceptical of that.“O’Mara has been a good advocate for disabled people in parliament, highlighting the barriers in getting to elected office, issues with the practices of the House of Commons and the damage that austerity policies are inflicting on disabled people.“If he can prove that he has changed, that he no longer holds the homophobic and misogynist views that he did as a 21-year-old, and if the latest allegations are false, then I would welcome his continued involvement in disability politics.“However, we cannot throw women and LGBT+ people under the bus by allowing him to speak for disabled people if the pattern of his behaviour does not hold with his words.”Debbie Abrahams, Labour’s shadow work and pensions secretary, told DNS on Tuesday: “Anybody that makes any derogatory and discriminatory remarks must be held to account.”She said Labour was launching an investigation into the comments, but she added: “We must allow due process.”The following day, a Labour party spokeswoman confirmed that the investigation had been prompted by the allegations concerning the remarks made seven months ago.But she said it was likely that the investigation would also examine the historic comments he made on social media.She confirmed that O’Mara had been suspended from the party but would still be expected to vote on party lines.Earlier in the week, women and equalities minister Justine Greening said, in a letter to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn: “Violent, sexist and homophobic language must have no place in our society, and parliamentarians of all parties have a duty to stamp out this sort of behaviour wherever we encounter it, and condemn it in the strongest possible terms.”She said the comments showed “the deep and persistent stain on Labour’s ability to represent women, the LGBT community and wider society”.Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable had called on Labour to withdraw the whip from O’Mara for his “completely unacceptable behaviour”.He said: “People must have confidence that MPs will stand up against prejudice. As MPs we cannot let ourselves fall short of those standards, particularly in our dealings with the public.”After the first – misogynistic – comments emerged, and he was forced to resign from the committee, O’Mara had released a statement saying that he was “deeply ashamed of the comments I made online” and that he understood “why they are offensive and sincerely apologise for my use of such unacceptable language”.He said: “I made the comments as a young man, at a particularly difficult time in my life, but that is no excuse.”He added: “Misogyny is a deep problem in our society. Since making those comments 15 years ago, I have learned about inequalities of power and how violent language perpetuates them.”The allegations have emerged only months after O’Mara won a shock election victory over former Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg in the Sheffield Hallam seat.There were hopes after his election that he would provide a strong new voice in parliament for disabled people.He said he wanted to highlight the impact of austerity on disabled people, and said Tory ministers had “completely torn up the welfare system” which had supported disabled people.He also accused the government of introducing policies inspired by “eugenics” in the hope that disabled people would “suffer and die”.O’Mara later told DNS that he wanted to see the House of Commons draw up a policy on bullying and harassment by MPs to prevent the kind of behaviour he had witnessed since joining parliament.And he said he wanted to “get some decorum and professionalism in the chamber and get it into the 21st century” and try to “make it a comfortable environment and make it an inclusive environment”.*The idea that different forms of oppression can combine and overlap, for example with the discrimination experienced by black women, or by gay disabled menlast_img read more

Sexist Job Ads Discriminate Against Women in China Even Specifying Applicants Required

first_img Free Webinar | July 31: Secrets to Running a Successful Family Business Add to Queue Job ads in China openly discriminate against women, regularly stating employers’ preference for male applicants.Some ads list a preference for men, others try to lure male applicants by describing the attractiveness of future female co-workers, while many more place unfair and unequal demands on women applicants.Analyzing more than 36,000 job ads from the last five years, Human Rights Watch released a new report on Monday detailing the extent of discriminatory job ads in China.”Nearly one in five job ads for China’s 2018 national civil service called for ‘men only’ or ‘men preferred,’ while major companies like Alibaba have published recruitment ads promising applicants ‘beautiful girls’ as co-workers,” Sophie Richardson, China director at Human Rights Watch, said.In the past, Alibaba has repeatedly advertised “beautiful girls” or “goddesses” that work for the company in its job ads, and described them as “late night benefits.”But even in January this year, Alibaba advertised three roles primarily for men. An ad for a government affairs senior specialist stated “men preferred,” as did an ad for restaurant operations support, while the ad for a crowd-sourcing delivery manager said “men only.”Last year, advertisements for feed reviewers at Baidu, who were likely being hired for censorship-related work, listed “men” alongside other job requirements such as an associate’s degree. In 2016, a job ad for the company’s filming program manager job ad stated the role required “strong logical reasoning ability, effective execution skills … men and manly women [need apply].”In response to the new report, Baidu told AFP its the job ads have been removed while Alibaba said it would conduct “stricter reviews” of its ads going forwards but the ads referred to in the report were outdated.”Sexist job ads pander to the antiquated stereotypes that persist within Chinese companies,” Richardson said. “These companies pride themselves on being forces of modernity and progress, yet they fall back on such recruitment strategies, which shows how deeply entrenched discrimination against women remains in China.”Performance by government departments were no better.Out of all national civil service jobs that were reviewed so far this year, 19 percent included the terms “men only,” “men preferred” or “suitable for men.” There was just one instance of a job ad that required the applicant to be a woman.Last year, 55 percent of jobs advertised by the Ministry of Public Security specified “men only.”These ads typically state working conditions such as “frequent overtime,” “heavy workload” and “frequent travel” that appear to be the reason for excluding women. One ad in the ministry’s news department listed “need to work overtime frequently, high intensity work, only men need apply.”One job ad site has attempted to stop the sexist ads by banning gender discrimination phrases, but there are easy workarounds. Human Rights Watch found numerous uses of Chinese characters that sound like “man,” use a Romanized version or swap “man” out for other colloquial terms.Sexist job ads in China are not a recent problem.Research from 2013 found gender-targeted ads are common in China, and that an employer’s preference for a women workers is often related to their age, height and beauty rather than skill.There are often gender-specific criteria for women hires.If organizations do try to hire women, Human Rights Watch found employers often add in strict, gender-specific criteria regarding appearance, marital status, motherhood or even alter educational requirements.In Shaanxi province, researchers found the actual job title for female train conductors was “fashionable and beautiful high-speed train conductors.”Another ad for train conductors in Hebei required women to weigh “below 65 kilograms,” be between “162 centimeters to 173 centimeters” tall and have “normal facial features, no tattoos, no obvious scars on face, neck or arms, good skin tone, no incurable skin conditions.”At Alibaba, the sole job available in January that included the Chinese character for “woman” required the applicant to “possess fine personal image.”Other ads appear to indicate employers would prefer to avoid the hassle of maternity leave, particularly under China’s new two-child policy.One job ad listed “[Applicants must be] women married with children or men.” Another, for a senior manager position at an internet company, required a “female, married with children, excellent image and temperament.”Even Beijing court assistants, who were required to be female, needed to have “proper looks.”In a number of instances women were able to apply for jobs only if they had higher qualifications than their male counterparts. In one city looking to hire management assistants, 47 positions were open to men who had high school diplomas. Two of the three same positions open to women required an associate’s degree.China is still battling gender inequality.When China ended its one-child policy, state media declared women could now return to the home in order to “better raise children.”This belief closely aligns with what appears to be the state’s desire for women to marry and remain in the home. In 2015, Beijing’s office of marriage registration caused an uproar when one of its posters saying: “Being a good wife and good mother is the biggest achievement of a woman,” began circulating online.The pressure for women to marry is so great that those who are unmarried after 27 are considered “leftover women” and “spoiled goods.”When measured for gender equality, China ranks 100 out of 144 countries.

Researchers Find Uber Use Leads to a Decrease in DUI Deaths

first_img Add to Queue –shares 4 min read Next Article Image credit: Uber | Facebook Researchers Find Uber Use Leads to a Decrease in DUI Deaths Guest Writer Ray Hennessey Editor-at-Largecenter_img August 25, 2015 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Free Webinar | July 31: Secrets to Running a Successful Family Business Uber Uber may be saving your life.Researchers at Temple University ran an analysis and found that use of car-sharing services, and Uber in particular, led to a decrease in the number of homicides from drunken driving.Looking at data from 2009 through 2014 in California, Brad Greenwood and Sunil Wattal of the Fox School of Business said they found that Uber’s entry into a market reduced DUI deaths, depending on the service.Use of Uber X led to between a 3.6 percent and a 5.6 percent reduction in alcohol-related driving homicides. By noting that there are 13,000 DUI-related deaths a year, the researchers figure complete implementation of Uber X nationwide would save 500 lives annually and the economy $1.3 billion in losses. However, as the cost and complexity of service rose, Greenwood and Wattal found no drop.Uber itself has touted its own service as a way to ensure you have a car after an evening of being overserved by your bartender. In fact, earlier this year it set up a kiosk with a breathalyzer in bar-heavy Toronto as a marketing gimmick.The car-sharing industry has produced a number of studies, too, saying these services reduce DUIs, but Greenwood and Wattal seem to be the first to run independent data to confirm it.The taxi industry does not fare well in the Temple research, with moves by some cities to limit Uber’s entry by the more heavily regulated cab industry facing particular criticism. Those limits, the researchers note, are designed to “manufacture excess demand” and “the absence of a sufficient number of taxis may result in citizens operating motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol.” In other words, protecting the taxi industry by limiting competition means more drunk drivers are on the road.Related: Court Rules FTC Can Come After Your Company After a Cyber AttackWhat’s more, the researchers found that there was no evidence that non-alcohol-related auto accidents rose in areas where Uber operated. That seems to support those who fought New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s plan to limit the number of Uber drivers on the city, citing safety. De Blasio backed off on that proposal last month.Instead, the research suggests cities, rather than tightening regulations for new car services, might want to think about loosening more onerous regulations to help taxi companies compete.“Although the results of this investigation cannot speak to public welfare losses which may result from improper vehicle handling or safety on the part of consumers (although our results do not indicate an effect on sober deaths),” the authors wrote, “they provide important insights into the potential benefits of the sharing economy and inform licensed livery services of the necessary steps which need to be taken to compete with firms like Uber.”Finally, the researchers propose a little business proposition: Restaurants and bars should start signing up with Uber and other ride-sharing companies.“To the extent that vendors can be held culpable for overserving patrons, and to the degree that return business is vital for these firms, integration of Uber during the dining or event experience offers significant benefit for all parties,” Greenwood and Wattal wrote. “In particular, the vendor is able to eschew a significant liability risk, while still ensuring that her patrons do not endanger themselves. Moreover, as chauffeured service is often seen as a sign of prestige, there may be additional social externalities which accrue to both patron and vendor.”Related: Apple’s Tim Cook Made a Rookie Mistake and Might Face SEC Sanctions Learn how to successfully navigate family business dynamics and build businesses that excel.

New mail and messaging tools expected for iPhones WWDC

first_img (c)2019 U.S. TodayDistributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC. New iPhones won’t be out until the fall. But Monday, we’ll get a sneak peek at what new features Apple has planned for us, not just for the next models but recent iPhones and iPads as well. Explore further Imagine Apple’s App Store with no walled garden At its Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple invites app makers to hear a road plan for what the company has in store, hoping that in return, the developers get excited and use the tools in their apps.As always, leaks of new features for what’s expected to be called iOS13 have made their way to Apple enthusiast sites. More on them shortly.Apple welcomes developers to San Jose, California, against a backdrop of storm clouds brewing over its practices with them. The Supreme Court said an antitrust case can go forward from iPhone users who allege that Apple engages in monopolistic practices in the App Store. Music streaming giant Spotify pushed the European Union to investigate its antitrust complaint against the App Store, and the hugely popular app Netflix recently stopped making itself available in the App Store, saying Apple’s commissions were too high.On Wednesday, Apple defended its business practices in a newly built app developer webpage, noting that it has paid out $120 billion to developers over the years for their share in fees from the site and arguing that it allows competitive apps to be side by side with Apple apps in categories like music, calendar, mail, messaging and cloud storage.”We believe competition makes everything better and results in the best apps for our customers,” Apple said.Tim Bajarin, a longtime industry analyst and the president of Creative Strategies, said Apple is smart to get its defenses out of the way before WWDC starts. “It takes it away from a lot of discussion at WWDC. They don’t need disruption there since their main purpose is to give developers more opportunities to make more money from Apple.” This document is subject to copyright.

Tirupur exporters body appeals for early settlement of lorry strike

first_imgCOMMENTS strike RELATED COMMENT Tirupur Exporters’ Association has appealed for immediate intervention to settle the lorry strike as it has started to impact the movement of goods adversely, the association president, Raja M Shanmugham, has said.“Exporting units in Tirupur are unable to transport the finished garments for shipment either through the sea ports of Tuticorin, Chennai or Kochi or airports such as Chennai, Bengaluru and Kochi.””Buyers do not tolerate supply delay and this is a very season-conscious, design-driven business. And we are competing with countries like Bangladesh, Cambodia, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Vietnam, who are in an advantageous position, while we are struggling to sustain in business here.” “Stoppage of vehicle movement from the garment unit to outside job working units like knitting, dyeing, compacting,printing, embroidery, checking, ironing and packing would affect production and these job working units will not be in a position to provide work to the employees,” Shanmugham said and appealed to the Lorry Owners’ Association to exempt the transport of export goods as also movement of goods.
