America -- What Do We After Do Charleston? 3.7.2015 Politics on
"For in a warm climate, no man will labour for himself who can make another labour for him. This is so true, that of the proprietors of slaves a very small proportion indeed are ever seen to labor. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever . . ." – Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XVIII “The Negro race in America, stolen, ravished and degraded, struggling up through difficulties and oppression, needs sympathy and receives criticism, needs help and is given hindrance, needs protection and is given mob-violence, needs justice and is given charity, needs leadership and is given cowardice and apology, needs bread and is given a stone. This nation will never stand justified before God until these ...

Mormon Church makes first donation to Utah gay youth program 3.7.2015 Yahoo: US National
The Mormon Church has made its first-ever donation to the Utah Pride Center, a Salt Lake City organization that works with poor and homeless gay young people, in what center officials said on Thursday was a significant moment in the Church's relationship with the gay community. Relations between the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the gay community were strained by Mormon support for California's Proposition 8, a 2008 ballot initiative that stripped same-sex couples there of the right to marry until it was ruled unconstitutional in ...

Why We Must Raise Children Who Care About the Welfare of Animals 2.7.2015 Green on
RUSSIA. Kaliningrad. A bear sits alone in a pit in Kaliningrad zoo. 2001. © Peter Marlow/Magnum Photos This image has haunted me for over a week now, since I first saw it in my Facebook newsfeed. I simply cannot get it out of my mind, and that's arguably a good thing. Normally I scroll quickly past such disturbing photos. There seem to be more than enough of them on social media, documenting animal abuse in every imaginable form in every country on Earth. You could place them side-by-side along a 24,000-mile invisible thread that encircles the globe at the equator. The same could be said of the abuse of human beings, and it's surely true, and is no less abhorrent. And yet, the animals. I think that what destroys me when I look at this image is the depth of despair of the bear who cannot understand his circumstances and will never escape them, and remembering that I saw bears just like this one during my childhood. Memories too painful to become entirely sharp all these years later are a buried ache ...

'America Needs Germany's Help': Video Makes Serious Point About Struggling Families In U.S. 2.7.2015 Politics on
Whenever a PSA cuts to dreary music and a morose-looking child, viewers can be sure they’ll be directed to helping underserved kids in a country that they may or may not be able to identify on a map. Not so fast. In an effort to underscore how severe the issue of hunger is right here in America, nonprofit Great Nations Eat partnered with agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty to release a couple of ads that follow standard PSA protocol, but depict kids in the U.S. The 30-second “Germany for America” spot, for example, features a stoic child clutching her stuffed bear while sitting on a stoop. As she stares dead on, the translated captions relay that this girl survives on little nutritious food and is at risk for developing diabetes and heart disease. The PSA then goes on to explain that 49 million Americans are struggling with food insecurity, and that Germany, which only has a 6 percent hunger rate, needs to step in and help. The unexpected turn aims to demonstrate how in the most powerful country in the world, ...

The Insecure American Male, and College Rape 29.6.2015 Politics on
There is a strain of American male whose life is shaped by chronic insecurity. This strain's considerable numbers and pronounced behavior patterns make the phenomenon obvious -- yet largely invisible. This male's symptomatic behavior is now so common, giving the impression of being the norm, that he is largely invisible, but with a little perspective his oddness becomes apparent. The macho culture of adolescent posturing and compulsive self-affirmation is everywhere: in ads; in the adulation of celebrities; in the stern cross-armed stance of TV anchors; in the alcohol fetish; in the unquenchable thirst for voyeuristic violence; and, of course, in the theatrical cocksure approach to women. This last is rooted in nature and evident in all cultures -- in various modes, to varying degrees. It stems in part from the rivalry for mates; it also expresses the sublimated truth that many men often are intimidated and overwhelmed by the female persona when it is not reduced to basic eroticism. Maturity involves ...
