"You Got Into My Heart Violently, but You're There" 28.10.2014
The following is excerpted from the new paperback edition of Studs Terkel’s oral history of death, Will The Circle Be Unbroken?: Reflections on Death, Rebirth, and Hunger for a Faith , with special thanks to his publisher, the New Press. "The Other Son" Maurine Young In contrast to her husband’s introspective nature, she is outgoing, a large-boned woman, overflowing with gusto and ebullience. She frequently laughs out loud. I’m a forty-six-year-old woman of Jewish-Gentile descent -- my father’s a Jew, my mother’s a Gentile. My parents divorced when I was young, and I was raised by my stepfather -- raised Catholic. He was a truck driver. My younger brother, Mark, became a truck driver. I went to public school. But I went to the Catholic catechism every Wednesday. I did the confirmation and all that kind of stuff. I got close to age twelve, thirteen, and I began to see what I was saved from. I was saved from Hell. But what Catholicism wasn’t teaching me was what I was saved to. They didn’t tell me how to ...

U.S. Child Poverty Rate Hit A 20-Year High 4 Years Ago And It's Not Budging: Report 28.10.2014 Politics on
The U.S. childhood poverty rate hit its highest level in 20 years back in 2010 and it’s showing no signs of letting up, a recent report concluded. More than 16 million American children live in poverty -- a staggering reality that leads to devastating health risks, in addition to overwhelming economic disadvantages, according to a new study published by JAMA Pediatrics. The figures have remained unchanged since they peaked in 2010 and federal spending on children dropped by more than $20 billion since that year. The good news though, is that the majority of American voters -- regardless of party lines -- are fed up. They’re tired of seeing vulnerable children suffer and want the government to step it up when it comes to investing in their future. These are the impossible struggles impoverished children in America face and some of the measures that could help put an end to them. 1.3 Million Public School Students Are Homeless The number of homeless public school students enrolled in grades K-12 hit a ...

How Subway Dancing Became A New York City Art Form -- And A Crime
28.10.2014 Politics on
Randy Vargas is a 19-year-old high school senior who dances for money after school on the trains beneath Manhattan. Among fellow dancers, he is admired and envied for his mastery of the “hat trick,” which he performs by juggling a baseball cap off his knees, feet and shoulders. Slim and elegant, he has long eyelashes and a smile so wide you can see his bottom teeth. He locks eyes with individual spectators as he dances, projecting his smile directly at them. “He naturally has a light on him,” one friend said recently, a view shared by talent scouts, video producers and other influential people who’ve noticed Vargas on the subway and have hired him to perform in music videos and commercials. Two summers ago, at 17, he beat hundreds of thousands of rivals for a spot in the quarterfinals of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” Although an inopportune slip-up cost him a chance to advance, Vargas, who performs under the name Kid the Wiz, won glowing praise from three of the four judges, including Heidi Klum, who ...

Ex-Governor, Ex-Con Edwin Edwards Trying To Make A Political Comeback 28.10.2014 Politics on
HAHNVILLE, La. (AP) — Off a narrow gravel road running between a handful of mostly abandoned lots near a Mississippi River levee, down past sprawling oak trees and thick weeds, a lectern framed by banana trees has been set up in front of three short rows of folding chairs. This is about as far from Washington, D.C., as a politician can get, but Edwin Edwards is happy to speak here, standing patiently in the damp, sub-tropical heat in the town of Hahnville for even a few potential voters to show up. "I've had rallies where over 45,000 people attended. And I've had them where 10 people attended. You've got to make them all," says Edwards, whose four terms as Louisiana's governor were marked by boom times and budget woes, scandals and indictments, one improbable comeback and finally eight years behind bars. With enthusiasm and vigor that belie his 87 years, Edwards is running for Congress in south Louisiana in what would be his second political resurrection. Some say it's a fool's errand. "The only chance ...

At least 2.6 million children have fallen below the poverty line in the world's richest nations since the economic crisis struck in 2008, UNICEF said in a hard-hitting report Tuesday. "Many affluent countries have suffered a 'great leap backwards' in terms of household income, and the impact on children will have long-lasting repercussions for them and their communities," said Jeffrey O'Malley, UNICEF's head of global policy and strategy. The study by the United Nations' children's aid agency assessed members of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development grouping of industrialised nations, as well as European Union ...
