GARDEN GROVE, CA a€“ August 23, 2009 a€“ Veterans-For-Change is proud to hear that President Barack Obama recommends fulfilling the promises made to veterans by building a Twenty-first Century VA system. President Barack Obama addressed the Veterans of Foreign Wars Convention held in Phoenix, Arizona on August 17, 2009. Perhaps you and the lawmakers of the United States of America are not aware of the problems affiliated with the VA and Veterans Benefits. Approved VA Claims Should set Precedent: Repeatedly veterans claims are denied left and right for reasons that appear to be astonishing to the veteran.
No two VAROa€™s (VA Regional Offices) and RO (Ratings Officers) view claims the exact same way, although they should, thus rendering entirely different results ranging from denial, to various percentages in awards.
When one veteran receives his benefit award, then it is time to look at this award making and setting a precedent for all future claims of the exact same nature and benefits awarded. Veterans-For-Change is asking members of Congress to take a long, hard and serious look at the escalating flaws in the system, and draft and submit corrective legislation. Benefit of Doubt on Veterans Claims: Again, more often than not a veterana€™s family members or surviving spousea€™s claims are denied even when there is an equal amount of evidence on both sides, from the claimant and the VA that an illness, injury or death was or was not service connected.
We ask that members of Congress take a hard and serious look at this flaw in practice, draft and submit corrective legislation so as to prevent such flaws and errors in practice in the future. You, as Americans, and politicians of a free society, do have a moral, ethical, and Patriotic obligation to provide benefits and care, regardless of the costs involved and in a reasonable timely manner! Our veterans cannot escape the effects, physical ailments, illnesses, and emotional wounds of war, or the effects of working in an environment on base where chemicals and other a€?confidentiala€™ and dangerous materials reside.
Members of Congress, the President, and the Veterans Affairs should be held accountable for the actions, inactions, and in many cases poor quality of care?
The actions of Congress and the actions and policies of the VA seem to express so loud and clear that it would have been far better had our men and women not served or died at war than to suffer the denials, the schemes, shenanigans, and the maltreatment provided by the government of the United States. We'd like to help you, and your family cope with, understand, and be able to find the assistance you need. DO YOU HAVE THE GUTS TO STEP FORWARD AND SAY YOU WON'T TAKE IT ANY MORE AND HELP IN THE FIGHT?
This is a 3D magical fantasy adventure crammed with visual effect because there will be a lot of CG animals (whales, fish, meercats) plus ocean and atmosphere, plus water-bound location.
Sharma plays a boy stranded in a tiny boat with a number of zoo animals including a Bengal Tiger… which of course will be CG.. Production on LIFE OF PIE will start in January and they’re going to shoot the entire film in 3D, in Taiwan and India areas. But despite the lush and nurturing variety of Pi’s world, there are broad political changes afoot in India, and when Pi is sixteen his parents decide that the family needs to escape to a better life. Thus begins Pi Patel’s epic, 227-day voyage across the Pacific, and the powerful story of faith and survival at the heart of Life of Pi. As the days pass, Pi fights both boredom and terror by throwing himself into the practical details of surviving on the open sea — catching fish, collecting rain water, protecting himself from the sun — all the while ensuring that the tiger is also kept alive, and knows that Pi is the key to his survival. As Yann Martel has said in one interview, “The theme of this novel can be summarized in three lines.

RadioRotary interviews Zamir Hassan, founder of The Hunger Van, a volunteer effort to bring food to the hungry homeless. Millbrook Rotarian Joyce Heaton describes this year’s New Year’s Eve Millbrook a community event that is family friendly and alcohol free. Rotary has had a unique role in the United Nations starting even before the UN was founded. The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a Federal program that operates on a country level, providing vocational training for low-income persons age 55 or older. Pleasant Valley Rotarian, and 2015 winner of the Jeffrey Keahon Foundation Award, David Kruger describes the work of The Rotary Foundation, the part of Rotary that not only does good in the world away from our communities, but also helps fund many local projects. Salvation Army Captains Sam and Jenny Alarcon visit RadioRotary to describe some of the many ways that The Salvation Army works to solve problems in Poughkeepsie and the Hudson Valley.
Cancer survivor Holly VanDerbeck tells about her experiences with Stage 3 melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer.
Red Hook Rotarian Gale Wolfe is interviewed about her participation in a medical mission to Tibet for this “live from the meeting” RadioRotary interview, recorded during a regular meeting of the Red Hook Rotary Club. Rotary District 7210 Past District Governor Bill Bassett (Walkill East Rotary Club) describes the history and current success of the effort, started by Rotary in 1979, to completely eradicate the terrible disease poliomyelitis, commonly called polio. The name “Dutchess Outreach” does not tell much about the organization’s mission, which is to meet the basic needs of low-income people when no other resources are readily available. Christina Novak, Communications and Development Coordinator of the Dutchess Country SPCA, visits the RadioRotary studio to describe the work of her organization, which is much more diverse than most persons realize. Rhinebeck Rotarian David Ives is the Executive Director of the Albert Schweitzer Institute, but that is just the tip of the iceberg for Ives’ many activities promoting worldwide peace and health.
In recent years, the proliferation of prescription opiate painkillers, such as Percocet, Oxycontin, Vicodin, and others, has spurred an increase in opiate addiction. RadioRotary interviews Marisol Rodriguez, Executive Director of Literacy Connections of the Hudson Valley, a nonprofit using local volunteers to help people to read, write, and reach their potential. RadioRotary interviews Rhinebeck Interact’s Grace Steele and Morgan Rakow, two of the 23 participants in the 2015 edition of that Interact Club’s “Nicaragua Project.” Interact is the high-school service organization sponsored by Rotary. Newburgh Rotarian Doug Sturomski is the unofficial Peace Ambassador for Rotary District 7210, which encompasses the eight counties in the Mid-Hudson Region. Highland Rotary Club’s Charter Member Steve Laubach and Don Verity, the Highland Rotarian who manages PAMAL Radio, the network for RadioRotary, describe the 11th annual Hudson Valley Ribfest, one of the major summer events in the Hudson Valley and primary fundraiser for their Rotary Club. It has been seen in the DMV at Rams Head Live, 9:30 Club, Hard Rock Cafe, Rock and Roll Hotel, U Street Music Hall, Jammin' Java and The Fillmore. As a member of Veterans-For-Change, a non-profit vocal group for Veterans rights, benefits, and treatment, my co-members and I would like to bring to your attention the immeasurable serious problems affecting veterans and their families every day. He stated a€?Whether you left the service in 2009 or 1949, we will fulfill our responsibility to deliver the benefits and care that you earned. Shouldna€™t these claims be treated in a manner making all Veterans equal and treated as fair, equal veterans who have done their duty, fulfilled their responsibilities, and thus deserve to benefit after dedicating their time, health and duty to a grateful nation? Also when there is a case of missing paperwork or a mishandled claim due to VA staff negligence again, the benefit of doubt is not siding with the veteran, spouse or family member. Unless the veteran makes it a point to stop by the records department and complete paperwork asking for copies of all medical records the veteran isna€™t permitted to review the C&P and question any findings. You do have a moral, ethical, and Patriotic obligation to care for those who did the job the average American Citizen didna€™t want to do.


Our soldiers stood tall, able, and willing to fight the battles to keep America free and safe.
Using the threads of all of our best stories, Yann Martel has woven a glorious spiritual adventure that makes us question what it means to be alive, and to believe. Bookish by nature, young Pi acquires a broad knowledge of not only the great religious texts but of all literature, and has a great curiosity about how the world works. Choosing to move to Canada, they close the zoo, pack their belongings, and board a Japanese cargo ship called the “Tsimtsum.
Worn and scared, oscillating between hope and despair, Pi is witness to the playing out of the food chain, quite aware of his new position within it. The castaways face gruelling pain in their brushes with starvation, illness, and the storms that lash the small boat, but there is also the solace of beauty: the rainbow hues of a dorado’s death-throes, the peaceful eye of a looming whale, the shimmering blues of the ocean’s swells.
A Join me and fellow Long Island Instructors for an event to raise money for family of Jamie and Paige Malone. Specializing in Latin Rythmns, this class will get you moving and you'll lose weight while having fun at the same time. Bard has an unusual undergraduate degree program in music because each student must also obtain a degree in another subject, such as mathematics or political science.
Not only has he been a Shelter-Box Ambassador, encouraging the funding of the program throughout the district, but be also serves on the board of ShelterBox USA. Lyme Disease is one of several tick-borne illnesses that are widespread in the Hudson Valley. Working in the city of Poughkeepsie, Bacchiochi and volunteer helpers distribute water and such personal care items as baby wipes to homeless women on a weekly basis. Its hundred-acre walkable campus on the Hudson, where autistic students learn in classes with 6 or fewer other students, is just the most obvious part of the organization. In 2000, Hassan chaperoned a school trip to a local food pantry and was astonished by how many were going hungry in his prosperous New Jersey community. Twelve years earlier, the Rotary Club of Millbrook was seeking a way to help bring the village and environs together as a community. Each year the United Nations invites more than a thousand Rotarians, members of associated groups such as Rotaract and Interact, and students participating in Rotary international Youth Exchange to come to UN headquarters in New York for panel discussions with Rotary leadership, UN ambassadors, and heads of international nongovernmental organizations.
While its most notable success has been the worldwide reduction of polio to a handful of cases in two countries—with complete elimination on the horizon—The Rotary Foundation may have saved even more lives with its projects for clean water, maternal and child health, and peace. The Salvation Army, founded in London by William Booth in 1865, is a worldwide Christian church that is organized along military lines.
Originally detected as a change in a mole, her cancer showed up later in lymph nodes, but was arrested by a combination of surgery and interferon, a drug that stimulates the immune system to attack cancer. Polio has a long history as a human disease that often causes lifetime paralysis or even death. EPIC (Engaging People in Change) gathers high-school students from around NE Dutchess and holds weekly meetings that focus on social justice and leadership skills. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society funds research that has greatly reduced the death rate from these cancers, and the Society also provides education and support for patients as well as advocacy for better treatments and services. Elsewhere in Vietnam, they have built two more schools, and they have embarked on programs in Jamaica, Honduras, and Ghana as well.
While the letters SPCA stand for Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to animals, most people think of the Dutchess County SPCA largely in terms of pet adoptions (and they do handle this for all kinds of pets, including birds, rabbits, rats, and Guinea pigs, as well as dogs and cats), but there are many other services. When he was 16, Ives took a trip to Latin America, where he was devastated by the poverty he encountered, and Ives determined to devote his life to helping others.
When addicts can no longer obtain their pills, they often turn to heroin, a cheaper street opiate—in fact, it is so cheap that many who could still purchase prescription pills also switch to heroin.
One in five Americans are functionally illiterate, which means that their reading and writing skills are at a sixth-grade level or lower.
Each year members of the Rhinebeck Interact Club, some adults (mostly Rhinebeck Rotarians), and some college students travel to the Leon department of Nicaragua where they work for a week on building and improving schools in impoverished rural villages.
One of his several projects related to peace is building and placing Peace Poles in parks, high schools, colleges, and various public places around the region.
They use their part of the income from the Ribfest to support The Rotary Foundation, ShelterBox, and several local charitable causes, including defibrillators for various locations around Highland (one of which saved a customer having a heart attack at the diner where the Rotary meets). This is in direct violation of the VAa€™s own policies, procedures and regulations and seems to go continually un-checked, and uncorrected.
Isna€™t it time America and our legislators performed the same task, to keep our freedom and our pride. His family runs the local zoo, and he spends many of his days among goats, hippos, swans, and bears, developing his own theories about the nature of animals and how human nature conforms to it. When only the tiger is left of the seafaring menagerie, Pi realizes that his survival depends on his ability to assert his own will, and sets upon a grand and ordered scheme to keep from being Richard Parker’s next meal. Hope is fleeting, however, and despite adapting his religious practices to his daily routine, Pi feels the constant, pressing weight of despair.
Jamie and Paige Malone lost their lives in a tragic car accidentA in July 2010 on their way to work as counselors at Camp Anchor, a camp for disabled young adults and children. The Graduate Vocal Arts Program owes its existence to the renowned soprano Dawn Upshaw, who developed and directs it.
On another front, through his involvement with the Albert Schweitzer Institute at Quinnipiac University, he has participated in several of the Nobel Peace Summits, an annual gathering of winners of the Nobel Peace Prize.
Trapani describes the education program at the Center, which includes a touring company that performs The Wizard of Oz, Rip Van Winkle, and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow at local schools. Many believe that when it fails to be cured either by no treatment or inadequate treatment, it becomes chronic Lyme Disease.
As with other parts of the United States, Poughkeepsie is undergoing a wave of addiction spurred by the introduction of powerful opiate pain relievers and the availability of cheap heroin. It also encompasses 21 group homes,  three life-learning centers, a clinic, and consulting arrangements with local schools. He says that in his tradition, you are not supposed to go to sleep if your neighbor is hungry, so he began to work on ways to alleviate the problem. In October of that year, Joyce—who was aware of First Night Celebrations in Boston and elsewhere—proposed that the club sponsor a New Year’s Eve celebration of music and events directed at children. Also each year since 2009 the RadioRotary team has been there to interview some of the participants.
SCSEP counselors Cheryl George, Patsy Kimbrew, Sheila Rock, and Marlene Fredericks describe the program, which provides training in such skills as handling interviews and writing resumes.
It is also the most effective charity because nearly all of every dollar given to The Rotary Foundation is used for its work instead of spent on administration or fundraising. A basic step to avoid skin cancers is to protect your skin from the ultraviolet components of sunlight and from artificial tanning—hats and other clothing on sunny days and application of sunscreen before exposure are the first lines of defense.

In the early 1980s a thousand persons per day contracted it and it was endemic in 125 nations.
Carleton Harris started with the summer camp run by the Rural and Migrant Ministry, leading him to become involved with the Youth Arts Group, which has much the same mission as the newly formed EPIC.
One way that you can help fund the Society and also increase awareness is to participate in one of the several Light the Light Walks in the Hudson Valley or Connecticut. RadioRotary gets the details from Joe Conti, President of the Board of Directors, and Brian Riddell, Executive Director of Dutchess Outreach.
Today the schools they built in Vietnam have more than 500 students in grades K-6 and, with the help of Rotary District 7210, they are working toward expanding the original school to take in another 500. A low-cost clinic, open to the public, provides routine veterinarian care for all sorts of pets.

Literacy Connections trained volunteers work one-on-one with the functionally illiterate to teach them the specific skills they need for a given goal, such as passing a driver’s test.
Under the supervision of a local foreman, the students bend rebar, mix cement, lay bricks, paint, and perform other basic construction tasks. Each year the Ribfest brings the best in barbecue to the Ulster County Fairground in New Paltz, along with children’s activities and specialty booths of all kinds.
And I picked a lifelong soldier and a wounded warrior from Vietnam to lead this fighta€”General Ric Shinsekia€¦ We're dramatically increasing funding for veterans health care.
Only a war veteran can comprehend how that price was paid for in full by our military and war veterans, along with their spouses and children! Isna€™t it time that Congress, the President, and the Veterans Affairs granted what our Veterans need to live a quality of life with their dignity and honor intact? Pi’s family life is quite happy, even though his brother picks on him and his parents aren’t quite sure how to accept his decision to simultaneously embrace and practise three religions — Christianity, Hinduism, and Islam. However, they have only just begun their journey when the ship sinks, taking the dreams of the Patel family down with it. It is during the most hopeless and gruelling days of his voyage that Pi whittles to the core of his beliefs, casts off his own assumptions, and faces his underlying terrors head-on. And a story with an imaginative overlay is thebetter story.” And for Martel, the greatest imaginative overlay is religion. Performances by students, faculty, and guest artists occur throughout the year at Bard, some of them free and many at the famed Fisher Center designed by Frank Gehry. At the most recent summit in Barcelona, Spain, Turpin combined these two aspects of his work by speaking to the meeting about how ShelterBox has been working to aid the refugees from the Syrian Civil War.
These fit will with the Center’s theme for 2016, which is “All-Americana,” featuring plays by American authors such as Kaufman and Hart, Tony Kushner, and Arthur Laurents. Chronic Lyme Disease, which is not recognized by the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC),  may affect those afflicted years after the initial infection.
In the late 1980s, Bacchiochi was herself an addict, but in 1990 she entered recovery programs. This compelling RadioRotary interview tells the listener much about autism and the important place of the Anderson Center in its management.
As he traveled from place to place around the United States, helping to set up food pantries, he realized that many of the hungry homeless lack transportation to get to the food pantries, so he created a volunteer program that would bring healthy food to where the homeless lived, beneath bridges or in doorways. Retired seniors are placed in jobs that reflect their previous work life or that are based on training received in the program. From its first days it has focused on helping the homeless, addicts and alcoholics, and the hungry. Changes in moles, persistent bleeding, and “floaters” in vision are among the signs that need medical attention.
Their whole family took part, as the 14-year-old brought eyeglasses, the 17-year old organized the Tibetan patients, and the 19-year-old and Gale both helped out in the dental clinic, where hundreds of teeth were pulled. As a result of a partnership led by Rotary, but including the World Health Organization, the U.S. Grace Latino Outreach (GLO) has for the past decade offered programs in English as Second Language as well as aid of all kinds for the immigrant population.
Amanda Harley, a campaign assistant for the Society, visits RadioRotary to describe the walks and provide information about cancers of the blood.

Susan Salomone’s son Justin, who struggled with opiate addiction for ten years, was among those who died from an overdose, leading Mrs. Sturomski builds are 8-feet high, resembling the Washington Monument, and have the message “May Peace prevail upon the Earth” in 80 languages.
This includes hundreds of millions of dollars to serve veterans in rural areas as well as the unique needs of our growing number of women veterans. The price they paid for their devotion to their freedom does not have a monetary amount and it could be considered priceless since the effects of war leave so many emotional and physical scars that cannot be repaired. Only Pi survives, cast adrift in a lifeboat with the unlikeliest of travelling companions: a zebra, an orang-utan, a hyena, and a 450-pound Royal Bengal tiger named Richard Parker.
Every two years, the Vocal Arts Program mounts an opera for the public, complete with a full orchestra accompaniment. Among the unusual attractions will be a new opera (Godfather Death) and pairing the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival’s Romeo and Juliet with West Side Story.
Symptoms can include arthritis, fatigue, mental fogginess, and impaired vision.  The black-legged ticks that carry the disease from other mammals, such as deer and white-footed mice, often attach themselves to human hosts in the nymph stage, when they are about the size of a sesame seed.
With the help of her church, she hope someday to open a storefront that would make it easier to carry out her mission. Some of the music acts from that first occasion—jazz pianist Larry Ham and the Handman Family strings—have been featured every year since, while other popular favorites such as the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, Metropolitan Klezmer, and ragtime-and-blues piano scholar Peter Muir, have been present many times.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and UNICEF, the number of cases has been reduced to about 150 per year and it is endemic only in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Salomone to start “Drug Crisis in Our Backyard,” a community action organization that provides resources for dealing with addiction. Before a learner enters the program—which is free—they are evaluated by certified testers to determine the specific source of their difficulties. Another project is the Peace Bell, related to the Peace Bell permanently placed in Hiroshima, Japan. We're restoring access to VA health care for a half-million veterans who lost their eligibility in recent yearsa€”our Priority 8 veteransa€¦a€? In another section of his speech he stated, a€?To all those who have served Americaa€”our forces, your families, our veteransa€”you have done your duty.
Bard actually hosts three orchestras, including the American Symphony Orchestra conducted by Leon Botstein. In about a quarter of the infections, a characteristic “bulls-eye” rash forms at the site of the infection. In the meantime, Hope on a Mission HOAM could use help in the form of donations and volunteers. A popular feature of New Year’s Eve Millbrook are the lighted buttons designed by local students.
The Alarcons describe various Salvation Army projects from after school for children to centers for seniors. This effort has been aided by hundreds of millions of dollars from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation put forth as matching challenges for The Rotary Foundation, currently a two-for-one match to every Rotary dollar up to $35 million per year.
Learn about this and more, as well as how to become one of the more than 200 volunteers that make the Dutchess SPCA work. From his Nicaragua connection, he helped start the major commitment that Rhinebeck’s Interact Club has made to schools, pure water, and other improvements in rural Leon Province. Listen to these two enthusiastic girls tell about their work and their other Nicaraguan adventures. Rotary, which has Peace as one of its six areas of service, has over 500 different ways to symbolize Peace, and among the examples are over 200,000 Peace Poles worldwide.
The annual event is free, since it is supported completely by contributions from local foundations, businesses, and individuals. It is not a fundraiser for the Rotary club; every dollar raised is spent on making the event joyful for all participants.
