Slides from Monday 2nd December 2015 Tribe Introduction event at The Escape School in London. Americans may find out in coming years, as the federal government is setting up a 'behavioral insights team' to tinker with the way we accomplish everything from saving money and staying in school to losing weight and becoming more energy-efficient. A document from Maya Shankar, a late-20s Yale graduate and former violin prodigy, sketches out the Obama administration's grand plans for behavioral science.
Shankar joined the Obama administration in April as a senior policy advisor at the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy. CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misrepresented Arnobio Morelix as a researcher for the University of Kansas. It sounds barmy doesn't it, the London Fire Brigade telling people about men putting their genitals where they shouldn't? Granted, they're not all penis-related, but some are very silly: people with loo seats on their heads, a man with his arm trapped in a portable toilet, adults stuck in children's toys, someone with a test tube on his finger. An old Buddhist koan asks, "What is the sound of one hand, clapping?" A related - and more amusing - one asks, "If a man speaks and no woman is around to hear him, is he still wrong?" We laugh at the second one because there's an element of painful truth to it: the battle of the sexes often leaves women feeling frustrated and men feeling unfairly demonized. The same insight applies to conversations; any true exchange of views requires the active participation of at least two people.
By its very nature, conversation - like any real exchange - implies some back and forth; one person offers his viewpoints and the other counters with a different set of ideas, recollections, or thoughts. Pundits love to chide white Americans for their reluctance to speak honestly about race, but that reluctance should not surprise anyone. I think that experience -- and others -- is why he once advised me, "When you go to San Francisco, be careful if a group of black youths approaches you." Note what he did not say to me.
It was after some first-hand episodes with young African-American males that I offered a similar lecture to my own son.
The racial experiences of whites, on the other hand, are deemed not germane to this "honest" and frank racial discussion.
This morning, Patterico highlights a similar attempt to shut down that honest national conversation.
Individual racism is irrelevant, apparently, unless wea€™re talking about a white racist, in which case it is super-meaningful and illustrative of whitesa€™ attitudes in general. Desmond-Harrisa€™s piece noted that Saletan had done his own piece on how to have a conversation on race. That's a good question, actually, and it's one I've been thinking about quite a lot lately. If we are to have that conversation, whites need to be willing to share their experiences and blacks need to be willing to listen.
The fact that my very first experience with bullying involved that lone black girl was, to my way of thinking, just a coincidence. Eventually I managed to make friends with Joy, but while I never got into a fight with Linda, I was never able to connect with her. One day, leaving school, a large and vicious group of black girls began beating up another girl. My name was inside that jacket, so there was no doubt that its new 'owner' knew exactly who it belonged to. She dared to say that she deeply resented having to worry about being groped or bullied or beaten up because of events that occurred over a hundred years before her parents came to this country.
Another old friend came to visit me in Virginia - a young, black man I had dated at my old school.
Does either side of the racial divide honestly want to understand where the other is coming from? It's hard to escape the thought that Holder's remembered conversation with his father is offered to white America as some sort of teaching moment: "See?
How he was dressed wasn't unacceptable, but it was a far cry from the way he dressed at school: no t-shirts, jeans that fit, shirt with a collar, belt, leather shoes. On more than one occasion it has occurred to me that a lone man in an elevator or in the parking garage can probably sense the heightened alertness in my body language - the sense of threat. But at the other side of that honest conversation lies something worth attaining: the understanding that while our experiences do play a role in shaping our perceptions, they don't have to define us.
Amid the Obama administration's crackdown against whistleblowers, Change.gov, the 2008 website of the Obama transition team laying out the candidate's promises, has disappeared from the internet.
The Sunlight Foundation notes that it last could be viewed on June 8, which was two days after the first revelations from Edward Snowden (who had then not yet revealed himself) about the NSA's phone surveillance program. Often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing government employee committed to public integrity and willing to speak out. The White House did not respond to multiple requests for comment on why the page was deleted. IRS employees have a prominent role in Obamacare, but their union wants no part of the law.
National Treasury Employees Union officials are urging members to write their congressional representatives in opposition to receiving coverage through President Obamaa€™s health care law. The NTEU represents 150,000 federal employees overall, including most of the nearly 100,000 IRS workers. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp offered the bill in response to reports of congressional negotiations that would exempt lawmakers and their staff from Obamacare. In order to ensure Americans understand how to access the benefits available to them when many provisions of the Affordable Care Act go online October 1, the Obama administration announced last month that it is setting up a call center that will be accessible to Americans 24 hours a day.
One branch of that call center will be located in Californiaa€™s Contra Costa County, where, reportedly, 7,000 people applied for the 204 jobs. The Times indicates that a job posting advertised all of the jobs as full-time, and one call center employee, who said no reason for the apparent change was provided, told the paper, a€?It reminded me of that George Clooney movie where he goes around the country firing people (a€?Up in the Aira€™). Pacific East is not the only overseas telemarketing firm raking in cash from the presidenta€™s reelection campaign. Due to our longstanding aversion to judging contests, the Editorial Staff enlisted the help of a Super Secret Contest Judge to pick the winners of the Worst Fake Disaster Movie Contest.
Two interesting photo essays explore how little of our lives is reflected in the faces we present to the world. And I so wanted them to see my father: a handsome, 6'4" Navy destroyer man, a man who still avidly follows the news and politics, someone who passionately loves his family and his country. The experience made me wonder how often I'm guilty of seeing only what's on the surface and assuming that's all there is? The Editorial Staff will be busy today, so we're posting a list of interesting reads in lieu of our usual inane commentary. A young college student's thoughts on the inherent conflict between manhood and modern morality.
Two excellent pieces by Walter Olsen: the first points out the contradiction in the idea that weakening legal protections for accused criminals somehow helps minorities. The second details the idiocy of abolishing the reasonable person standard when dealing with "unwanted sexual advances".
Possibly related story: in what must surely be one of the most mind-numbingly stupid lawsuits ever, a female dental hygienist fired and replaced by another female alleges sexual discrimination. Someone needs to explain the meaning of "at will employment" and "sexual discrimination" to these folks.
In October 2011, after a video surveillance camera caught Martin writing graffiti on a door, MDSPD Office Darryl Dunn searched Martina€™s backpack, looking for the marker he had used. Either of those incidents could have put Trayvon Martin into the custody of the juvenile justice system. Question for the ages: does anyone really believe the President of the United States didn't know this before his speech the other day? President Obama celebrated the Supreme Courta€™s decisions Wednesday on gay marriage, but overall it has been a rocky term before the court for his administration, winning just more than a third of the cases in which it was involved. Lawyers said the government traditionally averages about a 70 percent winning percentage before the high court. Ilya Somin, a constitutional law professor at George Mason University, said it is striking to take into account the number of times the Obama administration has been on the losing end of unanimous decisions. Interestingly, Somin's op-ed today seems to feature a decidedly lopsided unanimous judicial smackdown count. A detailed analysis of what George Zimmerman's calls to police imply about his view of blacks.
This past week President Obama publicly urged the reexamination of state self-defense laws (see remarks below).
The Obama-sponsored bill (SB 2386) enlarged the state's 1961 law by shielding the person who was attacked from being sued in civil court by perpetrators or their estates when a "stand your ground" defense is used in protecting his or her person, dwelling or other property. The bill unanimously passed the Democrat-controlled Illinois Senate on March 25, 2004 with only one comment, and passed the Democrat-controlled Illinois House in May 2004 with only two votes in opposition. When asked about his legislative record, Obama rattles off several bills he sponsored as an Illinois lawmaker. Republicans controlled the Illinois General Assembly for six years of Obama's seven-year tenure. Then, in 2002, dissatisfaction with President Bush and Republicans on the national and local levels led to a Democratic sweep of nearly every lever of Illinois state government. The white, race-baiting, hard-right Republican Illinois Senate Majority Leader James "Pate" Philip was replaced by Emil Jones Jr., a gravel-voiced, dark-skinned African-American known for chain-smoking cigarettes on the Senate floor. Jones appointed Obama sponsor of virtually every high-profile piece of legislation, angering many rank-and-file state legislators who had more seniority than Obama and had spent years championing the bills.
It was a stunning achievement that started him on the path of national politics a€” and he couldn't have done it without Jones.
The Editorial Staff have noticed a definite air of unreality to many of the things she has been reading of late.
I remember that, when I was a kid, my family, friends, teachers, and other role models told me countless times that money wasna€™t the most important thing. If proverbial Martians descended on Earth and toured America's crowded shopping malls, traveled its congested highways and sampled its technological marvels - from the many cable channels to ubiquitous smartphones - these visitors would be hard-pressed to describe the United States as poor or its economy as failing.
For those of you who have older children, have you encouraged them to "follow their dreams"? When our sons neared the age of majority, we recall advising them to think hard about what kind of life they wanted for their families. We don't understand the idea that anyone can (or ought to be able to) decide on a career without giving serious thought as to whether it pays enough to support basic goals like marrying, raising a family, living in the country, or living in the city? All the assets stored up for emergencies or old age - savings accounts, money market funds, 401Ks, IRAs - become worthless in an instant. Intra-racial crime is not unique to blacks - far more whites are killed by other whites than by people of other races. Thank God there are still courageous and honest men and women capable of facing the truth about the darkness that lies within people of all races. In the UK, a BBC radio host is fired for violating the British media's self imposed blackout on acknowledging - or even mentioning - a wave of rapes committed by Muslim taxi drivers. But a survey of stories buried deep inside local newspapers shows that taxi rapes are occurring in all parts of England, Wales and Scotland on an almost daily basis. A women-only taxi service has yet to arrive in Bristol, where BBC Radio host Sam Mason was fired after she called a taxi company and requested a "non-Asian" driver to take her 14-year-old daughter to her grandparents' home.
The BBC was alerted to the conversation after it was recorded and sent to The Sun newspaper.
Sadly, Mason's employers are likely completely within their legal rights to fire her, but it's hard to think of a more damning indictment of a news organization than firing an employee for the crime of inadvertently drawing attention to a major news story they are determined to sweep under the rug. Wolf continued: "It is worth nothing that the Marine Corps Times yesterday reported that the Marine colonel whose task force was responsible for special operations in northern and western Africa at the time of the attack is still on active duty despite claims that he retired. Our idea about an official "tip hotline" email address for Obama administration scandals is looking better every day. Attorney General Eric Holder reaffirmed yesterday that federal prosecutors were investigating whether George Zimmerman acted out of racial hostility when he killed Trayvon Martin in February 2012.
Morgan asked his guest to a€?calm down,a€? but Elder just kept on tearing away at Morgana€™s argument. One wonders if Holder is aware that black defendants in Florida have used the SYG defense more successfully than whites? The best known African American associated with Floridaa€™s a€?Stand Your Grounda€? law is Marissa Alexander, who was prevented from invoking the law after firing a warning shot to protect herself from her abusive ex-husband. Shortly after Dershowitza€™s criticisms, Harvard Law Schoola€™s deana€™s office received a phone call. Holder and Corey should ask the public to help them correct the problems in their own offices.
In the past, the government had argued that through his extensive training, Private Manning should have known that the information could end up with groups that wanted to harm American military personnel. Is it the work that you dislike, or is it your working environment?Whatever the answer is, then gauge the measure of your dissatisfaction.


You may know the answer already, but when planning career change at middle age, an excellent tool is a blank school workbook that you can buy at the supermarket. As you explore midlife career changes, youa€™ll find that many jobs require a formal qualification, and by reading the recruitment advertisements in the field you want to enter youa€™ll soon learn what they are.If you need a new academic qualification, enquire if you can get credits for a€?prior life experiencea€?. While maintaining your current job, keep moving towards your goal.One excellent method to set yourself up for success is to tell your family and friends what you intend, because then you are committing yourself quite openly, and ita€™s human nature not wanting to be seen as a failure. Personal income normally suffers from midlife career changes, so you need to be realistic about you cash flow, not only during the transition but also for some years after. You could spend some time profitably creating a permanent of additional income by creating an on-line business.My favorite is writing about something you are passionate about, using the technology available from Sitesell. Based on 30 years of working with private clients as they plan for 20-25 years of a comfortable retirement, and full of personal anecdotes, this book is a unique and highly personal approach to successfully planning for those years beyond age 65. One last tip we have seen success with in my office should you get turned down on one of the above scripts is ask them if they have thought of buying an investment property.
Session 26 is where I talk about everything you need to be doing when starting out in your Real Estate Career. It is important when starting a team to consider the following items, both as a team leader and as a team member. In Episode 24, I go over the power of the client party for real estate agents.  I tell you about some ideas for throwing a party from large to small, as well as how to do the marketing and invitations.  I then cover some Business to Business ideas you can use to help get you even more business coming in! One of the best ways to grow your business and deepen relationships is by acknowledging your best clients.  A great idea is to invite them to a client event!  In this episode I go over some great events you can try, from something small for just a few clients, to large events with hundreds of people. I also talk about how to throw a real estate House Warming Party for your clients.  You can also read about that HERE. B2B  I also cover businesses that you should be connecting with, so you can be sending and receiving referrals to help you reach your sales goals.  Here is just a short list of Business to Business connections you can make. THANKS very much for listening and if you found value in this episode, please share it with others below. Having these systems really frees up your time so you are focused on lead generation and working with clients. I also mention a great scheduling tool called Calendly   You can give a link to your clients and let them choose a time that suits them.
In Session 23, I talk about the much needed systems an Agent puts in place to make sure leads and potential business don’t slip through the cracks.  Having systems on autopilot is a must to ensure a successful business for now, and far into the future. I mention how to reach out to your sphere of influence when you start your real estate career. I also talk about open houses.  Open houses are a great inexpensive way to get yourself in front of customers FAST!  Many people will start their search by  visiting open houses.  If you can get them early on in their search, they may become a client! These people may just be starting to look for there next home and you will be able to help them! In Episode 21, I went over the 5 stages of Real Estate that I see most Real Estate Agents fall into.  In today’s session (Episode 22) I dive deep in to stage 1, where it’s all about Lead Generation! Early on in an agents career, the most important activity is lead generation.  From that point on, lead generation will still be the most important task, however how that happens may differ.
In this podcast I go over the activities I see my and many other agents doing and how these activities affect their production level.
I also mentioned doing open houses and working with Buyers, here are the links to those episodes. If you’ve said yes to the following 2 questions, then it may be time for you to consider getting yourself an assistant. Here is a list of tasks an assistant can do for you according to the National Association of Realtors. As busy real estate agents, we often get burdened with mundane  daily tasks that take us away from the really important things we should be doing.  Things like meeting new clients, negotiating offers, showing properties and taking calls. I share a story how this App not only showed where the iPhone was but how our staff member got it back!
Dealing with offers can be tricky and daunting at the same time.  Knowing how to maintain control can be the difference in getting a deal done or having it go sideways!  In episode 18 I go over how to handle offers, including dealing with multiple offers. A great App for consuming Podcast episodes on your phone, without having to tether your phone to iTunes.  You can search for Podcasts and download episodes to your phone to play later.
I share stories how my agents uses different techniques to move their referral business along. How to get started in your new real estate career can be tough.  How do you generate quality leads?  Where do good leads come from?  What are the best ways for a new agent to generate leads? Here is a list of great ways for a new agent to generate leads.  All of these techniques can be started immediately with little or no money needed.
While I have you on the phone, do you know anyone that is thinking of making a move?  Just remember if you think of anyone I would really appreciate if you could get their name and number so I can follow up with them. You can also reach out and connect with people over Facebook, just make contact, it may be your next lead! Another great lead generation technique is engaging in a farm area.  By starting small and marketing to an area of homes, you can quickly establish yourself as the area expert.  By using some of these marketing ideas, you can quickly grow your farm area from 500 to 1000 homes and even more!
I share a little story where an agent has put together a marketing plan for herself and sets out to complete the tasks necessary to fulfill her goal of completing the plan.  She has a limited amount of time to get tasks done and resorts to some useful techniques to complete the jobs. Create a MASTERMIND GROUP.  A group of 10 or so Like Minded people who want to grow their business. There you have it, 8 simple things to help you get your time management under control and get things done. I also give some tips on choosing a domain name to help setup your niche market.  I share ideas on what type of specialization you can do for your business and your niche. In Session 14, I go over the 8 things your website should be doing for you and your Real Estate business.  I cover some lead generation items that your website could do for you and I also explain how Google search works.
Here is a list of the 8 things I mention on this podcast that your website should be doing for you and your business.
Knock on at least 25 doors at a time.  Typically you can knock on about 20-30 doors per hour so this should be a minimum you set for yourself. Typical results are 1 appointment for every 50 doors knocked.  If you can commit to knocking on 100 doors per week you should be generating at least 2 appointments per week.  With those kind of results you will have many listings to sell in no time!
Senior Airman Tyron Lewis, 436th OSS aircrew flight equipment technician, inspects a chemical defense mask for leaks, holes or other damage. Senior Airman Mark Kennedy, 436th Operation Support Squadron aircrew flight equipment technician, stencils a€?training use onlya€™ on AN inflated 25-person life raft. Most functions from both shops and traditional aircrew life support functions will stay the same, according to Captain Anderson.
But the fact of the matter is people put body parts in strange places all the time, get stuck, and then call us out to release them. The answer to the first question is that, unlike our lonesome man (who is wrong simply by virtue of being male regardless of whether he has an audience), the sound of one hand clapping is actual silence. Moreover, two people with exactly the same memories and opinions can't really be said to be exchanging views, can they?
Attorney General Eric Holder, who commenced his last plea for honest racial dialog by calling the invitees "a nation of cowards", recently renewed the call for yet another national conversation about race; this time, one that is more open and presumably courageous.
He did not employ language like "typical black person." He did not advise extra caution about black women, the elderly, or the very young -- or about young Asian Punjabi, or Native American males. Black people shouldna€™t have to fit your definition of whata€™s respectable to deserve equality or justice. I looked at that piece and noted that, with a couple of perfunctory nods to even-handedness, it too was basically a compendium of rules for white people on how to talk to blacks about race (e.g. If this conversation is worth having then shouldn't it permit a real exchange of views and not just one side lecturing the other (or setting forth ground rules that essentially prevent exactly the kind of honest dialog we're told we're cowards for avoiding)? Yes, Linda relentlessly bullied the other girls on the playground, cutting in line, pushing people out of her way and grabbing the jump rope whenever she decided it was "her turn".
My new junior high had recently started bussing blacks from the city and rural whites from the surrounding farms into our middle class school district. If it is acceptable for the President of the United States or the Attorney General to regale us with a remembered litany of racial slights, why is it racist and wrong for Victor Davis Hanson to share memories that left an imprint upon him?
She resented being targeted because her skin was lighter than the skin of certain other students. But I was still wrong, and what's worse, I was deeply unfair to a friend who had done no wrong except to speak honestly about race during a private moment when there was no possibility of hurting anyone. I've told that story before, here - how his mother stood up for what was right and held her son to the standard we all should aspire to: seeing the person beyond the culture, the clothes, the accent, the skin color. It's not exactly unknown for groups of teenaged boys to get into trouble, son", I remember responding. He was wearing baggy jeans, a t-shirt with a flannel shirt over it, Sketchers-type sneakers, and a beanie. Is it profiling when I - a grown woman - instinctively throw my shoulders back and walk more briskly when I find myself alone in the parking garage of my office late at night? It's not something I'm comfortable with, and it has nothing to do with race and everything to do with the fact that women don't often rape or attack other women. Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled. If only there were a profession whose mission it was to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted. We can't afford to have a bunch of greedy elitists doing what's expedient for them while American workers take it in the shorts!
Obama paid a call center in Manila, Philippines $78,314.10 for telemarketing services between the start of the campaign and March. And if it's not a bad thing, why is the President trying to mislead voters and gin up outrage against American businesses? Typing in our Facebook pseudonym (we don't trust Facebook enough to use our real name) yielded "Benito Evil". I think what most frightened me about the whole experience was watching how hospital and the rehab center staff interacted with him. As we've said before, we don't necessarily have a problem with using a preponderance of the evidence to decide non-criminal disputes, but surely it should be left to schools to decide on their own standards, rules, and enforcement mechanisms? Does anyone seriously believe this woman would have been fired if she had chosen to limit her relationship with her boss to a purely professional one limited to normal office hours? Officer Dunn found 12 pieces of womena€™s jewelry and a mana€™s watch, along with a flathead screwdriver the officer described as a a€?burglary tool.a€? The jewelry and watch, which Martin claimed he had gotten from a friend he refused to name, matched a description of items stolen during the October 2011 burglary of a house on 204th Terrace, about a half-mile from the school. However, because of Chief Hurleya€™s attempt to reduce the school crime statistics a€” according to sworn testimony, officers were a€?basically told to lie and falsifya€? reports a€” Martin was never arrested.
It would be interesting to see the actual count of unanimous defeats for each administration.
As if the news weren't depressing enough already, IMF analysis says the United States has a worse long-term financial position than Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, or France. People focus on different things and that focus is affected by how relevant we think various things are to our own lives. But what's interesting, and almost never discussed, is that he built his entire legislative record in Illinois in a single year. Each session, Obama backed legislation that went nowhere; bill after bill died in committee. For the first time in 26 years, Illinois Democrats controlled the governor's office as well as both legislative chambers. Senate bid, Jones called his old friend Cliff Kelley, a former Chicago alderman who now hosts the city's most popular black call-in radio A­program. He sponsored a whopping 26 bills passed into law a€” including many he now cites in his presidential campaign when attacked as inexperienced.
As I find it harder and harder to make ends meet, even with my supposedly white-collar job as a tenure-track professor, Ia€™m going to encourage my children to do what they love, but only to a point. The truth is that, even in its current unsatisfactory condition, America is an immensely wealthy society. But it's important to keep perspective: For most Americans, the economy is performing adequately, though obviously not spectacularly. Once that decision was made, they needed to find a job that paid an appropriate salary and work hard.
During the child rearing years, we decided that raising a family in accordance with our values required a full time parent in the home. But children - especially babies and toddlers - really aren't all that expensive unless one buys into the notion that they must be given everything they want. What really matters is the ability to produce something someone else needs to survive and trade it for what you need to survive. Apart from a few high-profile cases, taxi rapes are rarely reported by national newspapers in Britain, apparently because the politically incorrect crimes are not deemed to be newsworthy. Mason, a single mother, told the operator that "a guy with a turban on would freak her daughter out," and insisted they send an English driver -- preferably a female English driver -- instead. It also raises serious concerns about the priority of the administration's efforts to silence those with knowledge of the Benghazi attack in response.


Can't wait to whip this out the next time we have a marital "discussion" over pre-prandial drinks this evening. It seems worth a try, although the Justice Department will get attacked for even looking into it.
There's really no serious dispute about this: whites are more likely to be preyed upon by other whites and blacks are more likely to be preyed upon by their fellow blacks. Elder also said there have been 480 blacks killed in Chicago alone and 75 percent of the cases have gone unsolved.
Alexander, who had no prior criminal record, was sentenced to 20 years in prison, and her case has become an important cause for supporters of the law.
When the dean refused to pick up, Angela Corey spent a half hour demanding of an office-of-communications employee that Dershowitz be fired. It's telling when senior public officials choose to waste public resources on self serving crusades against people who pose zero danger to the public rather than investigating very real problems occurring right under their own noses. Bradley Manning decided on Thursday not to drop a charge accusing Private Manning of a€?aiding the enemy.a€? If he is found guilty of the charge, he faces a possible life sentence in military custody with no chance of parole.
Denise Lind, centered on the prosecutiona€™s evidence that some of the classified documents Private Manning admitted giving to WikiLeaks were posted on the Internet and later reached Osama bin Laden. It wona€™t be a painless decision financially, you may have to downsize your house, but it is glaringly obvious what you need to do. It is as common for periodontists and lawyers to become bored and burnt out as it is for everyone else, and occasionally everyone needs to go looking to renew their Zest for Living.Paradoxically it can be easier in midlife to start your career again because now youa€™ve got skills, maturity and the right reasoning.
And remember to include in your application the informal learning that you have found in your specialty on YouTube. Ita€™s a form of internal positive reinforcement.My own personal career-change experience may be helpful for you to read.
This is something that the profession of career change counseling largely ignores, probably because they always want you to be upbeat.
Seller] My name is Marty Green from Remax and we have noticed quite an increase in home prices in this are over the last 2 years and I was wondering if you’ve given any thought to making a move? Seller] I’m Marty from Remax and we just listed a home on your street at [Address]  and I was curious if you have ever given a thought to selling your home? Gather together everyone you know (your sphere of influence) by getting them into some sort of database.
This first step is so important to a quick launch.  We need to let everyone know we are in the business so we can be open to immediate referrals. Did you miss getting important “business building” tasks done because of lack of time? Were you scrambling trying to fit things in your schedule this week or did you miss important appointments because you were too busy?

The former survival equipment technician takes pride in his work and knows that a membera€™s mask may save a life someday. The former life support technician said the raft will be used by Survival Evasion Resistance Escape teams to train aircrew on survival scenarios. Some of the servicemembers and property from the 436th MXS will be moving to the 436th OSS. Tom Maguire reads the report so The HuffPo and ThinkProgress you don't have to, and finds a rather sizeable math error.
We're not just talking one or two; our crews have been called out to over 1,300 "unusual" incidents since 2010 a€“ that's more than one a day. His purpose, like that of Richard Cohen (who was quickly branded a racist), was to explain that the experiences cited by the President and Attorney General are all too often grounded in the actual (and painful) racial experiences of American whites. He had helped to establish a local junior college aimed at providing vocational education for at-risk minorities, and as a hands-on administrator he found himself on some occasions in a physical altercation with a disaffected student.
In other words, the advice was not about race per se, but instead about the tendency of males of one particular age and race to commit an inordinate amount of violent crime.
When I was a graduate student living in East Palo Alto, two adult black males once tried to break through the door of my apartment -- while I was in it. The racial experiences of blacks are poignant and touching: the young man who feels alienated by the suspicious glances of complete strangers, the father who finds it exquisitely painful to explain to his teenaged son that he mustn't give the police cause to arrest him, are meant to elicit sympathy. Actual experiences like being robbed or threatened illustrate no larger theme about race relations in America.
It is a a€?nonexhaustive list of ground rules and remindersa€? for conducting our a€?national conversation on race.a€? Given the site where it appeared, you will probably not be surprised to learn that Ms. Ita€™s silly and unfounded to blame inequality caused by institutionalized racism on, say, sagging pants or rap music. We should care about all the structures that maintain racial inequality, not just individual actors. If we're ever to have a real conversation, then both sides need to be more respectful of each other's experiences, more aware of each other's sensitivities, and more forgiving of unintentional slights.
For the first time, as I walked down the hallways between classes I was groped by black boys and often witnessed black-on-white fistfights.
I had several black friends - students I shared classes with - so it was clear that not every black student in our school had a problem with whites.
My father, a Navy Captain, had transferred again and I now attended a private school in Tidewater, Virginia. That's a reaction many whites are familiar with - when they attempt to honestly share their feelings on this topic, they are insulted, vilified, dismissed. How can any of us know why another human being is uneasy around us unless we know their history? There is always so much more to learn about other people and other lives if only we are willing to risk a little pain, a little anger, a little discomfort. We need to empower federal employees as watchdogs of wrongdoing and partners in performance. However, because of Chief Hurleya€™s policy a€?to lower the arrest rates,a€? as one MDSPD sergeant said in an internal investigation, the stolen jewerly was instead listed as a€?found propertya€? and was never reported to Miami-Dade Police who were investigating the burglary.
And if he had been arrested, he might never have been in Sanford the night of his fatal encounter with Zimmerman. Barack Obama actually co-sponsored a bill that strengthened Illinois' 1961 "stand your ground" law.
During those six years, Obama, too, would have had difficulty naming any legislative A­achievements. Evidence of that is all over popular media, with movies about underdogs who a€?make ita€? and songs about more of the same. Ia€™m going to tell them the thing that I wish someone had told me: They have to make money. It produces $16a€‰ trillion in annual goods and services, provides 136 million jobs and supports a median household income of $50,000.
They needed to have long range plans that didn't include assuming the status quo was a given and would always continue. Consequently we quite literally never went out to dinner, and economized in ways that allowed us to live comfortably on one salary and maintain a healthy savings account. The problem this gentleman is facing isn't that money is too important - it's that his desires are out of line with his willingness to work and his choice of career. Because nearly every mechanical device these days has some sort of semiconductor or computer chip in it, it also wipes out basic utilities like power and running water.
Perhaps more importantly, what does it say about our values that someone with a college education can talk about "money" being "too important" without any understanding of what money really stands for: the exchange of value?
He said: a€?There has always been a legal defense for using deadly force if a€” and the a€?ifa€™ is important a€” if no safe retreat is available,a€? in confrontations outside a persona€™s home. Given this reality, ginning up unfounded fears of something that almost never happens (hordes of "White" vigilantes profiling young Black men) seems willfully perverse. Alexander was prosecuted by Angela Corey, the same state attorney who lost the Zimmerman case.
According to Dershowitz, Corey threatened to sue Harvard, to try to get him disbarred, and also to sue him for slander and libel. While we're at it, let's ask the public to help the White House figure out what happened at Benghazi! Coombs, the lead defense lawyer, argued that Private Manning did not have a€?actual knowledgea€? that by leaking the documents to WikiLeaks he was aiding the enemy. And you could end up happier if you develop a well paid encore career in the community sector. All you need is the inner confidence to realize that a€“ if so many others are doing it a€“ so too can you. However there are some weekend jobs out there that might suit a€“ such as selling display homes in new housing developments. I don't know whether it's the Fifty Shades effect or not, but I can tell you this, most are Fifty Shades of Red by the time we turn up in a big, red fire engine with our equipment to cut them out. In middle age, he and my mother once were parking their car on a visit to San Francisco when they were suddenly surrounded by several African-American teens.
Desmond-Harrisa€™s piece reads like a list of things white people had better not say to black people. Vilifying people who discuss race and point out racism a€” making them the bad guys a€” is one of the ways racism is maintained. If you want to celebrate black people who are educated and high-achieving and defy persistent stereotypes, great, but that cana€™t be a requirement for fair treatment.
I got the message and suddenly, the jacket didn't seem worth having to fight off her numerous friends. And she really didn't see why she should have to tread carefully around people to whom neither she nor her ancestors had offered any offense?
Ours occurred after my well groomed, red haired, and very white-skinned son came home from an evening out, complaining that the police had "hassled" him and his friends for "no good reason".
This is the implied refrain running through our too often one-sided conversations about race: "You have to be extra careful of what you say because you can't possibly understand how I might interpret your words".
Barack Obama will strengthen whistleblower laws to protect federal workers who expose waste, fraud, and abuse of authority in government. Similarly, in February 2012 when an MDSPD officer caught Martin with a small plastic bag containing marijuana residue, as well as a marijuana pipe, this was not treated as a crime, and instead Martin was suspended from school.
In college, some professors, advisers, and others may try to ground students in reality, but by then ita€™s too late; most students already have unachievable aspirations.
Oddly, we don't remember anything about following dreams (unless one considers finding someone worth loving and making an effort to perpetuate the species to be "following a dream"). Without computers, banks can't operate and people are quickly reduced to trading tangible goods. Corey also told the communications employee that she had assigned a state investigator a€” an employee of the State of Florida, that is a€” to investigate Dershowitz.
And of course a career change after 50 might even be that you become self-employed.And if you need inspiration, here are some books that I personally recommend. Youa€™ll find most people are happy to share some information with you.Just go to Google and start your search with the word a€?bloga€? before your keyword. You will probably need to adjust from your previous lifestyle, however youa€™ll soon adapt a€“ particularly as youa€™ll be enjoying life so much better.
The mind boggles but the message is serious: use some common sense and remember we're an emergency service and should be treated as such.
When confronted with their demands, he offered to give the thieves all his cash if they would leave him and my mother alone.
I could cite three more examples that more or less conform to the same apprehensions once expressed by a younger Jesse Jackson. So is acting as if a€?blacks suffer from racisma€? and a€?whites suffer from reverse racisma€? are equally valid points of view.
We got into trouble with this type of thinking when evidence that Trayvon Martin was a normal teenager messed up so many peoplea€™s impression of him as a sympathetic victim.
Obama will ensure that federal agencies expedite the process for reviewing whistleblower claims and whistleblowers have full access to courts and due process. This is the universal message from anyone who has undertaken midlife career changes.Of course, if you can't afford to leave your job, at least you can strike out in a new direction. Hanson's recollections was aptly summed up in the title of Ta-Nehisi Coates' response: "It's the Racism, Stupid". Regrettably, I expect that my son already has his own warnings prepared to pass on to his own future children.
