#She4SG

2017 was lauded by international policy and geopolitical spectators and critics as the first time a woman would take the helm at the UN as secretary general. But as January 2017 quickly approaches that prospect becomes more and more less likely.

In the coming days and weeks ahead, Eastern Europe (specifically Bulgaria) will likely pitch a new female candidate that they think has a better chance of winning the support of the Security Council. The Eastern European coalition will demand that when UN representatives assemble for the General Assembly this month they give the candidates a fair shot and consider the historic opportunity this presents the world in 2016 --- just as the UN tries to make itself more relevant to ordinary people. #She4SG

This is yet another reminder that, by and large, black kids are not allowed to be children. Quoting a piece by Mia McKenzie, "Why don’t our children get to be children? Why don’t they ever get to be innocent?"

What I have grown to find most troubling is calls from politicians for "calm". These so-called public servants demand public calmness weeks and days before these prejudicial decisions are made each time a person of color is murdered and the community comes to the defense of not just the victim and their family - but of the community as a whole. Oh, if only black kids like Tamir Rice and the countless others had the privilege of telling their murderers to "remain calm" before they took their lives.

The Republicans won yet another education budget battle.
Outlook for American education: poor

Finally, a bill with strong bipartisan support has passed the Congress. Unfortunately, the new law is a farce and an embarrassment to American education. #ESSA , a bill drafted heavily by Republicans, does little to empower low income communities or students of color; it's also yet another strike at teachers and unions across the country. Much like "No Child Left Behind" this law will keep the US education system at international lows because politics came before our kids. The worse part is that #ESSA will expire by 2020, so it's now more important than ever for folks to ensure that the next person elected president understands education is a priority.

This controversial character has taken the British public by storm. Over the past two weeks, she's sparked trending hashtags, debates across national television, and anger in hundreds of thousands of British households. Her name? Lady Colin Campbell. Her claim to fame: "I'm A Celebrity: Get Me Out of Here" and multiple books she has authored.

Smart policy. Right?

New York City will now require employers with more than 20 employees to provide said employees with commuter saving benefits.

Hard enough to live in this city to have to worry about ever increasing commuter fare hikes. Kudos to Mayor de Blasio. Programs like pre-tax commuter savings don't save commuters too much money, but it's a step in the direction.

Please read my op-ed, titled Education: The Next Battle - a silent war for fairness in education is brewing across America

"We have failed our kids. We have failed to revolutionize education quickly enough in our public schools to equip kids with the tools they need for post-secondary education and beyond. We have failed to give schools the tools they need to empower students, families, and educators to organize and address the local edu-issues they so desperately need to resolve.

"We have, however, succeeded in politicizing education in our national and local politics. In far too many places across the country we have put a price tag on the minds of our youth. The effects will be felt for generations. ...."

This is what happens when you confront a politician in Britain on #BBCQT

A Conservative voter confronts a Conservative member of parliament on the BBC's long-running programme over the Conservative's controversial tax cuts that will leave hundreds of thousands of low income families devastated. The Conservatives are only now unveiling plans to cut tax credits to working families, after refusing to reveal the plan before they were re-elected in May.

Watch for the MP's response - nothing; the programme moves along. A statement was later issued by the MP's office stating that by 2018, voters, like the woman who confronted her, will be "better off". Heartless.

A Storm Is Brewing In NYC Over Public Education
Charter schools behind political funding war over NYC school buildings.

Carmen Fariña, the chancellor of NYC's public schools, a lifelong educator and beloved member of the community is battling a politician with millions of dollars at her disposal to launch aggressive PR and political campaigns against anyone who disagrees with her education policies.

The rundown:
When conservatives were in control over NYC, they gave charter schools free rent. When Democrats stepped into City Hall, they stopped the free rent and charter schools launched a war - they shut down schools and ordered buses so kids (elementary, middle and high school) could go to rallies and denounce the Mayor and other elected officials for failing to offer charter schools up to $40M and for refusing the support the controversial charter... more »

Public schools are responsible to the taxpaying public. They are transparent, they report to the public and have the public's interests at heart. Charter schools - while labeling themselves "public" - retain exclusive admissions policies, work to veto the power and authority of local government, and have received nonstop criticism of their policies from students, parents, educators, non-profit organizations and lawmakers. Charter schools have been denounced in New York City for their poor disciplinary practices, lack of transparency and allegations over corruption between charter investors and politicians running for office. Strange enough, some of the same people decrying taxes - which, y'know, pay for schools - are the same folks demanding taxpayer funds to pay for charter school rent.

They are underlining an indisputable fact -- that the lives of black citizens in this country historically have not mattered, and have been discounted and devalued."

ICYMI: What Italy Can Teach America About Donald Trump

To dismiss Mr. Trump as a joke, as many Italians did with Mr. Berlusconi early on, and many Americans continue to do with Mr. Trump, would be a mistake. To take him seriously is also wrong. So use your sense of humor. Don’t take umbrage at his every offensive comment; his supporters don’t care, and the added chatter only helps him.

... don’t obsess over him. The American news and social media seem hypnotized by Mr. Trump. That’s not surprising. He is unusual, and heaven knows Western countries need some spice in the democratic process.

But to obsess over him is exactly what the man wants. “You see?” he can say. “They all gang up on me, those establishment types!” Ross Perot took advantage of the media’s love for the odd and novel in 1992; today, thanks to the Internet, it’s easier to spread theword.... more »

Pay Your Interns, +United Nations: Unpaid Internships Have No Place in Today's Society; It's Time for the UN to Remove Them... And, The UN Thinks So, Too

A 22-year-old New Zealander shook up the United Nations this week when it was unearthed that he was living in an outdoor tent because he could not afford to lease an apartment in Geneva.

These internships are prestigious opportunities to serve in international government and break way into international affairs. However, because UN internships are unpaid, the internship program itself promotes social inequity. How many young people do you know who can work for free for up to one year and afford rent, clothing, living costs, transportation, etc? Not many young people -- and those who can are wealthy or drowning themselves in borrowed debt.

How many young people do you know who can work for free for up to one year and afford rent, clothing, living costs, transportation, etc? Not many young people -- and those who can are wealthy or drowning themselves in borrowed debt. 

This is unacceptable and the United Nations thinks so, too. According to a UN spokesperson, the UN General Assembly passed a resolution some time ago that prohibits the pay of interns. This must change.

This isn't only an issue plaguing the UN. The US has a policy of unpaid internships in every level of government - city/town, state, federal, international - in which unpaid internships run rampant. We need to regulate this issue and pay interns, especially in an age in which internships are not only required to earn college credit, but to earn required experience to even sitdown for an interview. 

The US fashion and entertainment industries are now in crisis as interns sue production companies and publishing houses for backpay following as much as one-year without pay for so-called "internships" - which judges have often ruled were assistantships.

FAREWELL, DEGRASSI: The end of an era

This week marks the beginning of the end of Degrassi's 35 year run in broadcast television. After thirty years educating American and Canadian families, Degrassi High School will shut its doors to television broadcast... but, fortunately, +Netflix has picked up the series!

Degrassi respectfully and sensitively approached controversial subjects, including divorce, death, sex, abortion, genuinely inclusive LGBT issues, love, weight, bullying, cyberbullying, politics, and everything else relating to teenage angst. 

Farewell for now, Degrassi! (BTW, we're still grieving over JT Yorke's death!).

In re: Greece

It's no secret that the Greek economy has collapsed and the scene worsens everyday - meanwhile Greeks in recent months have been forced to rely on extremely low incomes, there's been a steady 50% youth unemployment rate, in recent days Greeks been prohibited from withdrawing more than €60 per bank account, per day (if the ATMs have enough cash) and banks remain closed.

Meanwhile, the country's creditors have come knocking at the door for cash and Greece cannot afford to pay. And, surprising to some, Greeks have rejected the conservative proposals from its creditors. There's a lot of finger-pointing in Europe and despite the Greeks' overwhelming "No" vote against further austerity, creditors cannot find a way to get their cash back and have seemingly forced Greece into a wall.

In re: Greece

It's no secret that the Greek economy has collapsed and the scene worsens everyday - meanwhile Greeks in recent months have been forced to rely on extremely low incomes, there's been a steady 50% youth unemployment rate, in recent days Greeks been prohibited from withdrawing more than €60 per bank account, per day (if the ATMs have enough cash) and banks remain closed.

Meanwhile, the country's creditors have come knocking at the door for cash and Greece cannot afford to pay. And, surprising to some, Greeks have rejected the conservative proposals from its creditors. There's a lot of finger-pointing in Europe and despite the Greeks' overwhelming "No" vote against further austerity, creditors cannot find a way to get their cash back and have seemingly forced Greece into a wall.

Greece's options are minimal and opportunities for negotiation become increasingly more difficult each day. Here are some of the big ideas floating around, ICYMI:
- Greece drop-out/kicked-out of the Eurozone. If Greece doesn't bow out of the Euro, its creditors may try to force it out in a rather unprecedented deal. This would enable Greece to return to its own currency, the drachma. Economists suggest that this will have severe dramatic implications, but may result in a stronger Greek economy in the long-run. However, one big concern here is whether Greece can remain in the European Union if it breaks from the eurozone and returns to the drachma. 
- Greek returns to the drachma. If Greeks can somehow negotiate a return to the native drachma currency as opposed to the euro, it seems that they'd be able to do boost their economy over an extended period of at least a decade or so, supported by some austerity programs. 
- Greece finds new partners. European leaders are building a coalition against the current Greek government. The leaders want their money back and they want Greece to follow their austerity program proposals. Greek hasn't enough cash to make its monthly installment this month of €1.6 billion, so it seems unlikely that any Eurozone country will offer any financial assistance. Therefore, Greeks may seek out the support of non-Eurozone countries for financial support.
- Greeks can start selling their inventory. Greece can begin selling off some of its high-grade military weaponry (much of it German) and find other items for an "international yard sale".
- Negotiate a better deal. A majority of Greeks, including over 80% youth, have rejected creditors' austerity proposals. The Greek government, however, may ramp up its own PR campaign and negotiate a better deal. It may even try to negotiate a deal that puts the Greek exit from the Eurozone on the table as part of the deal, too. 

Regardless, what Greece needs now is the support of the international community. There are 11 million people whose government is under increased global scrutiny and everyone has an opinion. Many reports from on-the-ground in Greece suggest that the situation doesn't look nearly as severe as it is - and that's a good thing. Greece needs options, debate, and constructive criticism that respects its right to self-determination, not finger-pointing and name-calling.

Kids React to Gay Marriage Ruling

Two years ago, the then-5-year-old boy said that he opposed marriage equality. Today, he has proudly evolved. Here's what he said about why he initially opposed: Last time I was concerned. I am in a higher grade. I read more books, get more information about stuff. I feel different now. My dad and my mom told me about it, 'there's a new law that boy and boy, and girl and girl can get gay and get married. And I just want you to know that it's okay to do that.

This is why the SCOTUS ruling matters. Follow his example and "read more books and get more information about stuff", people! #LoveWins   #LGBT   #marriage

Are you listening, BBC? America Needs You -- 
Why America Needs Question Time:

There's no shortage of Americans available to remind you that elected politicians often forget who put them in office. Once elected, priorities change, constituencies often differ (neighbors and constituents vs. lobbyists, etc.), and relationships change. Elected politicians have an obligation to the government in which they represent, and sometimes -- as unfortunate as it may be -- change is made best from the outside.

That being said, politicians far too often are not held accountable by the people who elected them, and faith and distrust of government will continue to grow as long as politicians remove themselves from the most integral part of the political process: debate.

Are you listening, BBC? America Needs You -- 
Why America Needs Question Time:

There's no shortage of Americans available to remind you that elected politicians often forget who put them in office. Once elected, priorities change, constituencies often differ (neighbors and constituents vs. lobbyists, etc.), and relationships change. Elected politicians have an obligation to the government in which they represent, and sometimes -- as unfortunate as it may be -- change is made best from the outside.

That being said, politicians far too often are not held accountable by the people who elected them, and faith and distrust of government will continue to grow as long as politicians remove themselves from the most integral part of the political process: debate.

Now, while the UK has got its own problems to sort -- and believe me, that list is long, just like any other industrialized nation -- a popular UK television program(me) called Question Time finds a brilliant way of holding politicians and political individuals accountable to the public; at the very least, via a public debate.

In case you've not seen an episode of Question Time, here's a roundup: the program is produced by public broadcaster, BBC, which invites five individuals to participate in a panel debate in front of a live studio audience, who ask questions and deliver comments to the panel. While members of the panel represent different aspects of UK politics: government representatives, authors, pundits, candidates, scholars -- they are each treated fairly and in the same regard. There's a degree of respect amongst the panel without any ridiculous hierarchy and ego-inflating rubbish commonly found in American television. Members of the panel realize that their titles are not as important as the content coming from their mouths.

In American politics, as opposed to productive debate, Americans, unfortunately, witness only the public arguments and nicety that hasn't gotten us anywhere. The real debate happens behind-the-scenes in the so-called "backroom" (see: Albany, NY). Americans are disinterested in public policy, ill-informed in the affairs of government, and have been too excluded from the democratic process to care very much about the issues we face -- a dilemma that will only worsen. When as few as 1 in 10 Americans support the Congress and when as many as 60-70% disagree with the work of the government, there is much to be done. After all, governments only work when they have the consent of the governed, right?

One is not advocating a series of "President's Questions", in which the President would sit on Capitol Hill and answer compromising questions from the opposition. 

But, America, you need Question Time. You deserve it. Americans deserve an opportunity to see our political leaders defend their beliefs. Americans deserve an opportunity to see political leaders challenged in an open and respectful environment. If trust is ever to be resotred between the public and the government, political leaders will need to be held accountable for their beliefs, their political actions, and the affairs of their government. In an era in which petty politics dominates the news coverage, it's time for national media to make a (literally) smart investment and give it a fair shot. 

A daily program on a major broadcast network (like CBS, Fox, NBC, ABC) or perhaps a digital revolutionary like YouTube (are you listening, Google? ;)) would go a long way. Cable networks featuring programs with political pundits are entertaining, but do not challenge the decision makers. Current programs do not create a fair, legitimate platform for putting decisionmakers and pundits on the spotlight. The right kind of spotlight - where stories are generated with substance. 

Programs today have not thus far met this need. Are you listening, networks and platforms? It's time to empower Americans and light the fire anew. America needs a program that empowers viewers, not the political mouthpieces.

Any of you G+ers watch #BBCQT  too? What're your thoughts?___

Forward: US Supreme Court Rules (again) Obamacare is CONSTITUTIONAL
Despite Republicans' attempts to strip 6.3 million Americans of healthcare, the High Court saves it.

Congratulations, America! In a surprise majority opinion -- which was written by the Republican Chief Justice appointed by George W. Bush -- the Court writes that "Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them."

That's right -- Republicans would have destroyed the healthcare market just to strip 6.3 million Americans of healthcare. According to recent figures, if Republicans removed "Obamacare" the US deficit would be higher than we'd initially thought. The ACA is working. It could use some work, but it's working!

Movie Recommendation: GETT: THE TRIAL OF VIVIANNE AMSALEM

Last weekend I watched 2014 release Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem, a film about a middle-aged Israeli woman's five-year journey to receive a divorce from her husband.

The film is enlightening, provocative, comical at times, and overall heartbreaking. I had no idea that it was so difficult for a woman in Israel to divorce her husband -- and she could only divorce him with his full consent. So, she took him to court for more than two years in an attempt to have a panel of rabbinical "judges" force her husband to consent to the divorce - only it did not work. It is almost painful to watch Viviane Amsalem sit in court over two years and address the sexism, emotional abuse, and judgment passed onto her by everyone in her community.

D'aww Raising Baby Squirrels!

This couple in the Midwest adopted brother and sister baby squirrels after their nest was destroyed where the husband was working. They hand fed, raised, and bathed the two squirrels for nearly 3 months; feeding the babies every 2.5 hours until they were ready to be reintroduced to the outdoors. They documented their adventure with the squirrels in daily vlogs and it's almost too cute to watch sometimes.
