Taking Children To An Aquarium Is A Lesson In Cruelty 23.6.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Originally published on Aeon . Edited by Nigel Warburton . What could possibly be wrong with taking your child to an aquarium? It seems like an innocent enough pleasure. Most children love watching exotic fish swimming behind glass, seahorses, sharks, rays, jellyfish and turtles. A visit to the aquarium is a mixture of entertainment and education, and seems much less morally dubious than going to a zoo to see gorillas, and probably much better than playing point-and-shoot video games. True, recent publicity about the US theme park chain SeaWorld and the treatment of orcas makes it clear that some aquariums step over the line when it comes to the humane treatment of aquatic animals. While the argument has been won for orcas, the moral situation for other marine animals remains murky. New dolphinariums are opening around the world -- dozens in China, but also in the United States, Thailand and Kazakhstan, with plans for more in Poland, Cyprus and Turkey -- though not all dolphinariums put their animals to ...

Midvale family shelter a world away from chaotic downtown homeless scene 22.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Midvale • Tranquility. That’s the feeling on a weekday afternoon at The Road Home’s Midvale family shelter. Kids are playing. Some parents lounge in the shade outside. There are no drug dealers. No crazed-looking people. No cars cruising by. The 2,300-square-foot family shelter, 529 W. Ninth Ave., has a maximum occupancy of 300, about a third the average nightly population of The Road Home shelter on Rio Grande Street in downtown Salt Lake City. Virgina Blankenship likes it. “We don’t have all t... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Preschool Teachers Aren't Getting The Training They Need 22.6.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Preschool teachers in many parts of the U.S. aren't adequately trained, according to a new study, released a week after a government report  deplored low wages paid to preschool teachers . The National Council on Teacher Quality study of 100 teacher-preparation programs in 29 states, released Wednesday, found that most provide inconsistent and incomplete training for early childhood educators. Most of the studied programs are bachelor's or graduate degree programs -- considered the "gold standard" for preschool teachers -- but nonetheless fail to adequately prepare educators for preschool classrooms.   The finding of poor training may help explain why preschool programs yield inconsistent long-term results. Some studies have found that children who attend preschool  attain  higher test scores and are less likely to require special education services. Other studies, however, have noted that the gains of these programs can fade quickly over time , and that costs may exceed benefits.  Most of the programs ...

Our Pluralistic Democracy Must Protect The Rainbow Children Of God 22.6.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Awash With Guns Heavily-armed freelance terrorist killers -- inspired by foreign extremists groups but not orchestrated by them -- like the one who struck Orlando last week and my community six months ago, represent a critical ongoing terror threat to America, but not the only one. As I testified before Congress in October 2015: "The United States faces multiple severe risk factors and a diverse set of emerging contemporary actors" with the most prominent being violent salafist jihadists, followed by domestic far right anti-government or bigoted extremists, with many of the worst now being active shooters. Despite this, and a ruling yesterday by the Supreme Court not to overturn a Connecticut law restricting assault weapons, the Senate failed to move forward on four limited proposals involving access to firearms for those on terror watch lists. This availability of weaponry has not been lost on extremists. Adam Gadahn, the deceased spokesman for Al Qaeda, another group the killer supported, exclaimed in ...

The Case for a Child-Centered Energy and Climate Policy 21.6.2016 Commondreams.org Views
Dr. Frederica Perera

Children suffer the most from fossil fuel burning.

Fossil fuel combustion and associated air pollution and carbon dioxide (CO2) is the root cause of much of children’s ill health children today as well as their uncertain future. There are strong scientific arguments, as well persuasive economic ones, for reducing the world’s dependence on energy generated by the burning of fossil fuels such as coal, oil, diesel and gasoline.
