A cop in the White House

first_imgDonald Trump gave a bone-chilling speech at Suffolk County Community College on Long Island, N.Y., on July 28, exposing the fact that he is nothing more than a cop occupying the White House. In front of an audience of police officers, Trump spoke on why his administration is pushing for more repression against migrants, especially along the U.S.-Mexico border. He is scheduled to give similar talks elsewhere around the country.He referred to MS-13, a group of Honduran and Salvadoran youth based in Los Angeles also known as La Mara Salvatrucha, as a “gang” of “animals” and “thugs.” In doing so, Trump continues to push the racist, xenophobic narrative of “protecting American lives” as he moves to add 10,000 more armed border patrol agents and 5,000 more Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to arrest and deport migrants.Trump ran a racist presidential campaign of labeling migrants as “murderers,” “drug dealers” and “rapists.” Then, during his first 100 days in office, ICE arrested 41,318 immigrants, up 37.6 percent over the same period in 2016. (Washington Post, July 28)Back in the late 1980s, Trump referred to the Central Park Five, Black and Brown youth falsely accused of raping a white woman, as “animals.” They were finally exonerated, but he refused to apologize.Trump made other remarks in the same speech so brutal that some police publicly tried to distance themselves from them. Talking about the way they make arrests, Trump said, “Please don’t be too nice. When you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over? … Like, don’t hit their head, and they just killed somebody. I said, you can take the hand away, okay?” As he was speaking, Trump mimed the physical motion of an officer preventing a suspect’s head from bumping against the squad car.Some individual cops may have been upset with Trump’s words. But he was only acknowledging in his own crass way what happens every minute of every day inside the U.S.: The police can and do get away with all forms of racial profiling, including stop-and-frisk, beatings, Tasering and outright murder, with impunity, because the rules that repress the poor, the workers and the oppressed do not apply to the police.Trump’s words should bring to mind for revolutionaries what Karl Marx wrote during the 19th century about the state — the armed bodies of men and women, including the police, prisons, courts, army and so on. It is “an organ of class rule, an organ for the oppression of one class by another … and this power, arisen out of society but placing itself above it, and alienating itself more and more from it, is the state.”Trump also reinforces the inevitable truth that the workers and oppressed, as a class, are the ones who will be the gravediggers of the capitalist system — which elevates the police as armed occupiers of oppressed communities, especially those full of Black and Brown people, whether U.S. or foreign born.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The power of introverts

first_imgNot everyone craves the professional spotlight. Some of us would rather stay in the background, doing good work and making strong contributions. Thankfully for introverts, there are many different ways to be heard and recognized to enrich your career—but it’s still on you to find the right way to get noticed.Defining an IntrovertPeter Vogt, publisher of Introvert Insights, and author of The Introvert Manifesto, Moorhead, Minnesota, says it can be challenging to find a widely accepted definition of “introvert.” “It’s better, and more accurate, to refer to yourself (or whomever) as someone ‘with a tendency toward introversion’ much of the time. The term ‘introvert’ is shorthand for something that’s a mouthful to say in everyday life.”It’s too easy to think of all introverts are the same, he notes, when they’re not. Rather, people who see themselves as introverts may share certain tendencies most of the time, defined in two ways: continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Our Poisonous Moon: Better from a Distance

first_imgThe moon stabilizes Earth’s axis and regulates the tides, but enjoy it from a distance.  Now there are more reasons you wouldn’t want to live there.“Long-term human exposure to the lunar environment has never been studied in depth, and it’s quite possible that — in addition to the many inherent dangers of living and working in space – the Moon itself may be toxic to humans,”  wrote Jason Major wrote at Universe Today (emphasis in original).    He was reporting on  a paper produced by an international team of physiologists, pharmacologists, radiologists and toxicologists from 5 countries, who sought to quantify the dangers to humans of extended lunar exposure.In the ArXiv paper by Linnarson et al., “Toxicity of Lunar Dust,” (open access), the researchers attempted to fill the “knowledge gaps” about health hazards in lunar dust while recognizing that “ground truth” on actual effects will require in situ measurements.  According to Major’s summary, the risks include inhalation of fine dust, skin damage and eye damage.Lunar dust is not subject to the erosional processes on Earth, so the particles tend to have sharp edges.  These can be compared to “pollutants encountered on Earth, such as asbestos and volcanic ash,” Major said; “lunar dust particles are small enough to penetrate deep within lung tissues, and may be made even more dangerous by their long-term exposure to proton and UV radiation.”  In addition, the microgravity environment of the moon may loft these particles around the airways.The dust is dangerous on the outside, too.  Apollo astronauts noticed that the dust clings to everything.  Long-term exposure to the sharp-edged particles, even in the safety of a lunar base, could cause skin abrasions, particularly on the fingers, knuckles, elbows and knees.  And if the dust were to irritate or scratch the cornea of the eye, would there be an opththalmologist in the base to prevent blindness?These were just a few of the risks of extended lunar habitation.  Some of the fine particles might enter tissue cells, or activate the immune system.  They might release free radicals into tissues and organs.  Even if the dust problems could be overcome, the moon remains unprotected from solar UV radiation, the solar wind, solar flares, micrometeorites and high-energy cosmic rays.The authors listed 34 remaining “knowledge gaps” about lunar toxicity.  If any of these (many suspected to be high to very high risk) were to prove serious, it might cause a reconsideration of the wisdom of sending humans to the moon for extended stays.  Since some of the risks apply to Mars as well (and since the moon would probably be a training base), these findings could put a damper on hopes for manned missions to Mars.God’s green Earth is starting to look quite nice, isn’t it?  Maybe you’re fretting the heat, the rain, the wind, or the cold.  After a week on the moon, you would count the days to get back home.  There are hazards on Earth, too, but at least you can breathe the air, get dirty in the garden and shower it off, and usually live out a lifetime without the constant protection of an artificial bubble.Consider that the moon is almost exactly at the same distance from the sun as Earth.  That’s why all the astrobiological optimism about extrasolar planets within habitable zones is mostly hype.  The moon is in the perfect habitable zone, too!  Many other factors are required to make a body habitable.  Time to watch The Privileged Planet again and count your lucky star.**The word lucky used here loosely to include Providence.(Visited 19 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Absa academy builds financial skills

first_img4 October 2011Banking group Absa has successfully trained the first group of financial advisers through the Absa Insurance and Financial Advisor Academy, as part of its efforts to develop skills and create jobs in South Africa’s financial services sector.The academy recruits trainee financial advisers in line with business requirements. Since its establishment, there have been three intakes, namely, in October 2010, February 2011 and October 2011.The first group of the trained financial advisers will now be integrated into Absa, where they will provide much-needed financial advice to clients.“This will complement the number of advisers who will be able to provide informed financial services advice to existing and potential customers and, thereby, boost the culture of savings and investments in our country,” said Izak Smit, managing executive for Absa Distribution, the business unit that houses the academy, in a statement this week.“Established in 2010, the academy presents us with an opportunity to grow our own talent from grassroots level in order to meet the scarce and critical skills in the financial services sector.”Coaching and mentoringDevelopment managers with extensive financial planning skills, knowledge and extensive industry experience, coach and mentor the trainee financial advisers in all key aspects of financial advice.The trainees undergo a rigorous and intense programme to allow them to develop the skills needed to assume the responsibilities expected of a competent financial adviser, while ensuring that they comply with the requirements of the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act.“This marks a very significant milestone in the relatively short existence of the academy as it will continue to develop high-calibre, professional advisers with the necessary skills and competencies who will be able to meet the evolving needs of our clients,” said academy head Rabbia Sarang.“In providing industry-recognised training to our financial advisory staff, Absa is ensuring that our academy will ultimately benefit the investment choices and portfolios of our customers.”SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, August 29, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Rain arrives later this afternoon and we will see some significant changes to our short term weather pattern, at least for a couple of days to finish the work week. A strong cold front is working across the corn belt from northwest to southeast and has some cooler air with it. We are going to leave rain totals alone this morning for the coming 18 hours or so. We see rains of .25”-1” with coverage at 80%. We are not quite as concerned about thunderstorms but will grant you that we can’t rule them out. The action starts in west central and NW Ohio later this afternoon and then continues to trek across the state through the overnight and may not completely exit eastern and southeastern Ohio until closer to late morning tomorrow. The map above shows rain totals through midday tomorrow.We are going drier tomorrow afternoon and Friday, as the air mass change coming behind this front looks to be more substantial. WE think we see mixed clouds and sun for both days and no significant precipitation threat. Temps will actually be below normal for these days, quite the contract from earlier in the week. This cold front just has not seen its edge erode away, and the air mass has not modified as it has trekked across the corn belt so far…so we are making this tweak.Warm and humid weather returns over the weekend as south flow works back into the area. We also see scattered showers and thunderstorms moving through, favoring the northern half of the state. Precipitation potential has a wide range at this point, anywhere from a tenth to 1 inch combined for the 2 day period. However, coverage is only 60%, and that again is skewed more to areas from I-70 northward. We wont rule out action in southern Ohio completely. Temperatures will return to above normal levels this weekend.Monday should be dry. However, we see that general unsettled weather pattern we have mentioned before (pretty much every day this week) back over the area for the rest of the week. This yields scattered showers for Tuesday and Wednesday at least, producing .25”-.5” rain totals each day, and nearly 70% coverage each day too. This set up does not bring rain all day, but chances are there through each day, Tuesday and Wednesday. We should be mostly dry Thursday, but then a minor front is back, threatening for Friday. The moisture with the Friday front is not impressive yet, but we think it may be able to build as we get closer to the end of next week. We have no reason to deviate from our thoughts on an active extended period too, keeping scattered showers as at least a possibility at least 4 days of that 11-16 day period.Temps will mostly be above normal for the next 10 days to 2 weeks. WE are cooler today than previous days and will be below normal tomorrow and Friday, but then we spend the rest of the forecast period anywhere from 2-8 degrees above normal.last_img read more
