A seafood restaurant in the rapidly gentrifying St. Roch Market. . . . New Orleans a decade after Katrina embodies the advance of civilization—or the end of it—but the direction of the city is clear. In the short term, thems that got will get, and thems that’s not will lose.
People who suffer from neuroticism – a condition characterised by anxiety, fear and negative thoughts – are extremely tuned in to looking for threats. For that reason, you may expect them to perform well in jobs requiring vigilance: stunt pilots, aviators and bomb defusement. Yet, the evidence suggests they are actually more suited to creative jobs.
Dr. Paul Yip Siu-fai notes that each year, about 500 people in Hong Kong kill themselves by jumping off buildings. The prominent display of the sculptures poised at the edges of tall buildings could be misinterpreted, especially by those who are vulnerable or depressed.
University of Cincinnati Reclaim sexual assault peer advocates say they’re being silenced by the administration. “It’s all crumbling,” said Maria Kothman, a former Reclaim advocate and graduate of UC’s social work program.
Do you know any social workers or social work clients that spent $50,000 a week for their vacation house like Hillary Clinton is doing for the above? Is it justifiable for social workers to support a candidate that is so far out of touch? The six-bedroom Amagansett, New York mansion above was actually rented by the Clintons last year around this same time.
Survivors of Hurricane Katrina are stranded on a rooftop in New Orleans, Louisiana, on August 30, 2005. Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast with devastating force at daybreak on August 29, 2005, pummeling a region that included the fabled city of New Orleans and heaping damage on neighboring Mississippi. In all, more than 1,700 people were killed and hundreds of thousands of others displaced.

Tusla is the Irish state agency responsible for improving wellbeing and outcomes for children. Its establishment in 2014 involved a comprehensive reform of child protection, early intervention and family support services. The agency has in excess of 60 policies, which devolve from the over-arching 2011 Children First national guidance for the protection of children policy framework. This guidance places responsibility for keeping children safe with everyone, including professionals such as social workers, GPs and the police, but also schools, community organisations and the general public.

The Jamaica High School building last year and, at right, in 1981. In “The Great School Wars,” a history of public education in the city, Diane Ravitch writes, “In the early twentieth century the public school was transformed into a vast, underfinanced, bureaucratic social-work agency, expected to take on single-handedly the responsibilities which had formerly been discharged by family, community and employer. . . . The idea took hold that the public school was uniquely responsible for the Americanization and assimilation of the largest foreign immigration in the nation’s history.”

Republican presidential candidate and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush speaks during an Americans for Prosperity event in New Hampshire.
Students at the Encore Academy charter school in New Orleans, in May…. A recent report by the Education Research Alliance confirmed that principals engage in widespread “creaming” — selecting, or counseling out, students based on their expected performance on standardized tests…. Adding to the difficulty of assessing the New Orleans experiment is the fact that Louisiana education data has been doled out selectively, mostly to pro-charter researchers, and much of the research has been flawed. Last fall, the Cowen Institute for Public Education Initiatives was forced to retract a study that concluded that most New Orleans schools were posting higher-than-expected graduation rates and test scores.
Lee Bonneau was found with head injuries in a wooded area on the Kahkewistahaw reserve in 2013. Two weeks before his death, Lee told his father in front of a social worker that other boys on the reserve were beating him up and he was scared to go back, says the lawsuit.

When Lee Tae-ho, a social worker at the National Child Protection Agency, last year visited a 7-year-old at his home upon request from his school teacher, nothing seemed too out of place at first. “My mother drinks a lot of water when she’s eating,” the child told him about his single mother. It didn’t take long for Lee to realise that the “water” was in fact the colorless Korean alcoholic beverage soju.
Brian Gomez, right, stands with defense attorney Chelsea Koch in 4th District Court on Tuesday after Judge Roger Griffin declared a mistrial in the child sex abuse case filed against Gomez by prosecutors in Wasatch County.

Corporate funders from Intel to Monsanto to Mars Inc. pooled their deductible foundation dosh to help underwrite this $63 million, Ken Burns-style paean to their own market-conquering genius. Moreover, were these ‘donations’ tax write-offs?
Dr. Lenard Kaye is a professor at the School of Social Work and director of the Center on Aging at the University of Maine.
In 1987 Bernie Sanders as mayor took on a major local institution to press them to pay their fair share of taxes. Conversely, “[i]n six years as a member of the Wal-Mart board of directors, between 1986 and 1992, Hillary Clinton remained silent as the world’s largest retailer waged a major campaign against labor unions seeking to represent store workers” ( http://tinyurl.com/2vtj6k ). The truism “past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior” likely applies again.

Although the industry’s biggest trade group, America’s Health Insurance Plans, said repeatedly that insurers supported Obamacare, the group was secretly financing the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s TV campaign against reform. Among the companies most concerned about the law were those benefiting from overpayments the federal government had been making to their Medicare Advantage plans since George W. Bush was in the White House.

Social workers do their jobs on the front lines and, too often, they find themselves in harm’s way as a result. Those of us in the profession were painfully reminded of this on 7 August, when Child Protection Social Worker Lara Sobel was allegedly shot twice by a client, Jody Herring, who had lost custody of her 9-year-old daughter.
Public education used to be, you know, public — an essential societal investment for the betterment of all, paid for by all through school taxes. In addition to privatization schemes to turn education over to corporate profiteers, public schools themselves have steadily been shifting from free education toward what amounts to fee education. This is a product of the budget slashing frenzy imposed on our schools in the past 15 years or so by the convergence of Koch-headed, anti-public ideologues and unimaginative, acquiescent education officials.
There is ample evidence of same-sex relationships across cultures and eras.

Mr. Bond and the executive director of the Sierra Club, Michael Brune, right, tied themselves to the White House fence to protest the Keystone XL oil pipeline (that Wall St Hillary Clinton will not take a position on). Once again Mr. Bond demonstrates the difference between a leader and a crass opportunist.

What Sanders has done is to establish himself as a force in the Democratic Party’s selection process. He has done so by demonstrating two qualities that have largely disappeared from America’s political life over the past few decades. One is conviction and intellectual honesty. The other is articulate statement of a progressive creed that was the party’s heart and soul when it dominated the country’s electoral life, before lapsing into the “me-too” wing of our current Establishment uniparty. . . . Consider this: Apple and GE, two of America’s most profitable corporations, are paying Zero federal taxes. Their aggregate taxes paid to governments worldwide is 0 percent and 3 percent. Apple — always the most innovative — declares itself headquartered somewhere in cyber space where no tax laws apply. That assertion is uncontested by Washington. President Obama has ignored this scandalous tax evasion, his administration has taken no executive initiatives and proposed no legislation remedy. Democrat leaders in Congress are equally inert. Candidate Clinton ignores it.
For Gov. LePage and his allies, scapegoating the poor has become a successful political tool.
