Who: MoCo Climate Coalition--”Spring '18 Climate Emergency Mobilization” (listed below) What: Ten climate activists disrupt MOCO Council hearing to protest refusal of climate funding; the first civil disobedience in MOCO history When: Thursday, May 17, 10:45 a.m. Where: County Council Hearing Room, 3rd floor 100 Maryland Ave., Rockville, MD Why: After declaring a climate emergency in Dec., Council refused to fund a Climate Director Contact: Dr. Jim Driscoll, Coordinator, MoCo Chapter of The Climate Mobilization, email@example.com In the wake of locally-severe windstorms and flood warnings driven by climate change, the full Montgomery County Council unanimously in a straw vote approved a budget without including funding for a new "County-wide climate czar." This would have been the first County-wide climate position, so the vote was a significant setback to climate progress in the County. Immediately after the vote, ten climate activists began shouting "This is an emergency!" Police were called to eject the activists so the meeting could continue. Video is below. In an historic decision on Dec. 5, the Council Council had unanimously recognized the growing vulnerability of the County to such climate-driven threats and declared a climate emergency, the first County in the U.S. to do so. Council then set the ambitious, nation-leading goal of eliminating 80% of all greenhouse gas emissions by 2027 and called for a massive mobilization to reach that goal (see Washington Post article below). The Spring '18 Climate Emergency Mobilization, a new and growing coalition of MoCo groups (listed below) working with various Councilmembers had made its top priority getting new funding for the County-wide position to implement this resolution.. Councilmember Elrich had responded to the Coalition's request for funding this position. In addition, Council President Riemer, Vice President Navarro (whose Committee approved the request) and Councilmember Hucker had publicly committed to funding the position. The other Councilmembers, Berliner, Floreen, Katz, Leventahl and Rice had refused to lend their support by making such public commitments. Unbelievably, the process by which Councilmembers "vote" for specific projects is held in secret. To give a sense of the low priority given to climate in the budget straw vote this morning, the Council approved nearly $15 million in additions to the budget, but refused to include $70,000 for the first half year of County-wide leadership on climate--less that one half of one per cent of the additions they made to the budget. “To call attention to the hypocrisy of at least some members of the Council in declaring an emergency and then not including money to deal with that emergency, ten of us, as individuals, not representing our organizations, chose to risk arrest by disrupting the Council meeting," said Dr. Jim Driscoll, a decorated Vietnam veteran and former MIT professor. "We will not save our County or our planet from climate chaos by business as usual. Increasingly, climate activists in the region and elsewhere have turned to nonviolent direct action in the tradition of King, Gandhi and suffragette Alice Paul. Politicians in MOCO like to talk the talk on climate. Increasingly, we will insist that they walk the talk as well., Organizational Members of “Spring '18 Climate Emergency Mobilization” Coalition (in formation) 350 MoCo Capitol View Democracy Crew Glen Echo Heights/Indivisible Montgomery County Green Party Maryland Women's Alliance for Democracy and Justice MoCo Chapter of The Climate Mobilization MOCO Education Exploratory Committee for The Climate Mobilization Montgomery County Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions Progressive for Equality and Compassion for Everyone (PEACE) Takoma Park Mobilization Environmental Committee

The Secretary of the Humboldt Park Advisory Council, Tracy Bartels, was asked to step down from the council after the community discovered her repeated racist commentary about Puerto Ricans in Humboldt Park on Everyblock.com, under the user name "wild one". In a conversation about a dog park being added to the Park "Wild One" says "We should talk about this, I am the secretary of the Humboldt Park Advisory Council." She also has recently admitted to being the administrator of the FB page "Humboldt Park Community Watch" after anonymously defending her OWN behavior at the meeting in this video. She also was quoted in an article by GOZMOS last year, making racist comments about Puerto Ricans after a group of residents successfully boycotted "Riot Fest" and forced it to move to Douglas Park. She called for a Boycott of Puerto Rican owned business and of anyone that supported Alderman Maldonado of the 26th ward. The HPAC has yet to issue a statement to address why she was appointed without appropriate vetting and what they intend on doing about the community's concern of Ms. Bartels in the position of secretary. They have been invited to join a body of leaders in the community at the Puerto Rican agenda meeting and have yet to accept the invitation or address the matter at all. Ms. Bartels is a PLAGUE on Humboldt Park and has no business being in a position of leadership or authority of any capacity in Humboldt Park. She is NOT QUALIFIED and also NOT WANTED because she is a proven bigot. She never once said she didnt say anything racist, but instead shouted repeatedly, "PROVE IT!" Well... I'm taking her up on that challenge and will be proving it. This is the FIRST phase of making sure the community has a clear explanation of what is going on so that they decide for themselves if she should represent us on the HPAC. I for one say she must either step down or be removed and an election or new RESPECTABLE, QUALIFIED, ETHICAL resident should be take her position. I will gladly throw my hat into the ring. Notable Moments: :20 - The community asking her to let Charlie Billups finish his statement while she loudly interrupts the HPAC meeting. :36 - "I Don't care!" Tracy B. :55 - Tracy B. Unplugs the Sound System so that Community Residents cannot use the microphone. 1:04 - "Come on up here!" She challenges people to step up and fill her seat. Multiple people said they would volunteer. 1:15 I address the crowd o calm down and wait for her to leave so that we can discuss what happens next with the rest of the council. Tracy B. continues yelling "You can do it" at me re: her position on the council. 1:50 "You guys have never shown up in the community before!" Tracy B. to a room full of community leaders, activists, organizers and scholars... 2:00 - The community Boos loudly because Tracy refuses to leave. 2:05 - Man asks Tracy to leave the messing and she says, "No problem!" but continues to throw a tantrum. The man gets so frustrated he leaves. 2:40 Tracy refuses to let community residents speak and continues disrupting the meeting. 2:50 The community is fed up and peacefully chant "Let him speak!" The president of the Humboldt Park Council hands charlie Billups the microphone and Tracy B. laughs loudly and pulls her phone out to record residents.

There was bedlam at the New York City Council on Thursday. Demonstrators disrupted a deeply moving and symbolic vote, but protest organizers say it wasn’t supposed to happen that way. As CBS2’s Matt Kozar reported, pro-Palestinian protesters stormed the balcony inside City Council chambers. For five minutes they disrupted a vote on a resolution commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz. “The council members were shocked,” said Jacob Kornbluh, a political correspondent with the website JPupdates.com. Kornbluh recorded the protest on his phone. “I think they stepped over the line,” he said. Councilman David Greenfield (D-44th), whose relatives died in the Holocaust, feels the same way. “Somebody would engage in an anti-Semitic protest while we are having a conversation about 1.1 million people who were slaughtered during the Holocaust? That’s when you decide to protest?” he said. Protest organizer Rosalind Petchesky, who is Jewish, called what happened a terrible coincidence. She said the timing was “absolutely not planned one single bit.” Petchesky, an author, MacArthur Fellow, and Professor Emeritus at CUNY said the protest was aimed at the Council Speaker and 14 members who are planning a trip next month to Israel. The trip has been paid for by Jewish groups who Petchesky called anti-Palestinian. “We oppose Israeli policies of violence; of repression of Palestinians; the entire occupation,” she said. Petchesky and others vowed to keep protesting the trip.

Mayor Emanuel's 2012 Chicago City Budget proposes to close half of Chicago's mental health clinics and privatize all 7 of its neighborhood health centers, cutting off access to care to some of Chicago's most vulnerable residents and under-served communities. The Mental Health Movement, launched by Southside Together Organizing for Power (STOP)'s in partnership with the Community Mental Health Board of Chicago and AFSCME Council 31, has been trying to meet with Mayor Emanuel since he was just a candidate. We delivered 4,000 letters explaining that closing clinics is dangerous for communities and will carry unanticipated costs in extra hospitalizations and police response to preventable crises. He ignored our letters and announced his plan to close and privatize our clinics. After asking for over a year to face the people his decision could kill, we sat-in for 10 hours at his office the day before the budget vote. Nonetheless, due to political arm-twisting, his budget passed 50-0. The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) has NOT consulted with the people this decision will affect. The Commissioner refused to appear at a town hall, meeting only with small groups who consistently told him that this decision will cost lives because many people cannot survive a transition to other clinics far away or cannot afford the co-pays charged in the private sector. But we continue the struggle. This video is from 12/20/2011 when Rahm's Health Commissioner Bechara Choucair came to the Martin Luther King Jr. Center at 43rd and Cottage Grove to meet with some of the employees from clinics he is closing. The Mental Health Movement is one of the only groups in Chicago history that won a head-to-head confrontation with then-Mayor Daley, when he tried to close four of these same clinics in 2009. That struggle launched a human rights movement lead by mental health consumers/survivors that continues growing to this day. We will not back down.

There are two major dimensions to the relationship local government and Māori – the issue of Māori representation within local bodies, and the issue of the relationship between local bodies and Māori communities. On the issue of representation, there are claims of racism from those both for and against the institution of Māori wards on local bodies. Further, the Auckland Independent Māori Statutory Board offers an alternative model for Māori inclusion in local body structures. What are the pros and cons of these different models? And why is Māori representation in local government a crucial issue we need to grapple with? On the issue of the relationship between local government and Māori communities, we are now well into the era in which many iwi and hapū around the motu have finalised historical settlements with the Crown. These Māori communities have new resources and mechanisms (such as co-governance arrangements) to facilitate them to pursue their aspirations. But what is the role of local government entities in supporting them? And how are local bodies working on their own structures and processes to make the most of the new possibilities in their regions and to do their best to support iwi and hapū development? While we tend to talk about ‘Māori and the Crown’, Māori communities are regionally based and local government has an important role to play in supporting or hindering Māori development in the post Treaty settlement era. This panel discussion will provide insights into some of the difficulties and possibilities in, and the national importance of, Māori-local government relationships. Panellists: Dr Maria Bargh (Te Arawa, Ngāti Awa) is Head of School and Senior Lecturer in Te Kawa a Māui, School of Māori Studies, Victoria University of Wellington. She researches and teaches in the areas of Māori politics, including Iwi, local and general elections, and Māori resource management. Brandi Hudson (Ngāti Maniapoto, Rarua, Pikiao) is the CEO of the Independent Māori Statutory Board. Brandi leads the Board’s secretariat to provide policy, planning, strategy and legal advice to the Board who have full voting rights on the Auckland Council. The role of the Board is to ensure that the council meets its statutory and Treaty obligations and to promote the aspirations and issues of significance to Māori in Tāmaki Makaurau. Lena Henry (Ngāti Hine, Ngāpuhi, Te Rarawa) is a Lecturer in Planning at the University of Auckland. She teaches and researches on Māori and resource management, iwi planning and development, community planning, local government and policy and planning.

Following the Village-School Board Memorandum of Understanding, Lee School Board Member Chris Patricca and Councilman Nick Batos are continuing to work together to meet with Estero school principals to address and accommodate the needs of Estero’s schools. The Village Comprehensive Plan has been completed and the Village Council is now moving forward with development of its first Land Development Code. Community members are encouraged to attend the Planning & Zoning Board meetings to voice their input. The State has given preliminary approval for both Lee Health and HCA to build hospitals in Estero. All parties now have until June 25 to file a petition challenging the decision. A hearing would then be scheduled and a judge will decide whether to approve both applications, neither application, or either Lee Health or HCA’s application. The annual planning season has begun for the Village’s Capital Improvement Projects (CIPs) and budgets. Community members can participate in the Public Hearings for the CIP on June 11 & July 25. County Manager Doug Meurer has identified a two-pronged approach of interim upgrades and long-term improvements to address the traffic deficiencies on Corkscrew Road. At the Village Council Meeting on May 30, Councilors voted 6-to-1 to retain the four lanes and add 7ft buffered bike lanes and sidewalks on both sides of Estero Parkway. Significant changes have been made to the Conservation 20/20 program for funding, site criteria, site nomination, and CLASAC involvement. The Troyer Brothers Mine Rezoning Hearing will be held June 26. People must speak at this hearing in order to speak later before BOCC. The Economic Outreach Council (EOC) still needs volunteers for the Junior Achievement Program. Please speak with your neighbors and consider volunteering yourself. The Health Committee met with Lee Health to discuss staffing at Lee Health Coconut Point and are satisfied that the facility will have a skilled staff when they open on December 4. The next ECCL meeting will be Friday, July 13, 2018 at 10:00 am at Estero Community Park. For more information on the ECCL, go to http://esterotoday.com.

Tuckahoe Board of Education Re-Organization Meeting July 5, 2017

Chaos as Zapu supporters disrupt Zanu PF meeting. Zanu PF and Zapu supporters here clashed last weekend over registration slips, with the latter disrupting the ruling party’s meeting at Zhokwe village. The Zapu supporters accused Zanu PF officials in the district of allegedly forcing villagers to bring their voter registration slips for them to be eligible to receive food aid. This comes amid outcry from opposition parties over continued intimidation of voters by Zanu PF officials, who of late have been accused of demanding registration slips’ serial numbers from would-be voters. Southern News understands that the meeting had been called by village head Roger Ndlovu with the agenda to inform his subjects about the need to register for them to get food aid. However, that was before Zanu PF officials, led by area commissar Pharaoh Nyaliwa Ndlovu, highjacked the meeting and started giving instructions that only those who brought voter registration slips would be eligible. This, however, did not go down well with some Zapu officials that were part of the meeting, who — led by one John Dube — immediately forced the meeting to adjourn arguing the ruling party had no right to demand the registration slips. Zanu PF’s Nyaliwa Ndlovu shifted the blame to the party’s local secretary in the area identified as Grace Vumani. “I was only called to the meeting where I was told by Vumani to bring my BVR (biometric voter registration) slip for it was a requirement to register for food aid. I did and gave it to her at the meeting. “Chaos started when John Dube challenged the slips issue and his Zapu colleagues joined in. They disrupted the meeting and it was closed,” Ndlovu told Southern News. Village headman Ndlovu confirmed the development, saying he had to adjourn the meeting following the skirmishes. ”Yes, we had a meeting that was disrupted by members of Zapu and other people who were disrespectful. They refused to surrender their BVR registration slips and there was chaos. The registration slips were a requirement for residents to register for food aid. I failed to hold the meeting and had to close the meeting,” said Ndlovu. Zapu deputy national organising secretary Ndodana Moyo confirmed the stand-off between the two parties saying the party had to intervene to protect its members. “It is true we have such a problem in Gwanda Central. What surprises us as Zapu that President Mnangagwa pronounced to the nation and international community that his government will ensure free and fair election yet his party is antagonising our people especially in rural areas where intimidation by Zanu PF is rampant,” Moyo said. “It is against the spirit of free and fair elections as provided for by the Constitution. However, this time around Zanu PF will not have it easy as they are used to run over the MDCs. Zapu matches them man-to-man and we will never have their nonsense. Our Zipra veterans are already on the ground to protect all citizens.” ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ► Hot news: https://goo.gl/J7mUhU ► ANC: https://goo.gl/x9xRAu ► Scandal: https://goo.gl/YGe8cw ► Zimbawe updates: https://goo.gl/2MJUjp ..........................................................................................

Speaker: Dr Judith Rodin Chair: Professor Craig Calhoun Recorded on 19 January 2015 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building. Through dramatic stories, penetrating insights, and research from around the world, Judith Rodin, the President of the Rockefeller Foundation, discusses how people, organisations, businesses, communities, and cities have developed resilience in the face of otherwise catastrophic challenges. Judith Rodin has been President of The Rockefeller Foundation (@RockefellerFdn) since 2005. During her tenure she has recalibrated its focus to meet the challenges and disruptions of the twenty-first century, to support and shape innovations that strengthen resilience and build more inclusive economies. She was previously president of the University of Pennsylvania, and provost of Yale University. A widely recognised international leader in academia, science and development issues, Dr Rodin has actively participated in influential global forums, including the World Economic Forum, the Council on Foreign Relations, Clinton Global Initiative and the United Nations General Assembly. Dr Rodin is also a member of the African Development Bank’s High Level Panel, a Board member of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (co-created by The Rockefeller Foundation). In November 2012 New York Governor Andrew Cuomo named Dr Rodin to co-chair the NYS 2100 Commission on long-term resilience following Superstorm Sandy. A pioneer and innovator throughout her career, Dr Rodin was the first woman named to lead an Ivy League Institution and is the first woman to serve as The Rockefeller Foundation's president. A research psychologist by training, she was one of the pioneers of the behavioural medicine and health psychology movements. Dr Rodin is the author of more than 200 academic articles and has written or co-written 13 books. She has received 19 honorary doctorate degrees and has been named one of Crain's 50 Most Powerful Women in New York. She has also been recognised as one of Forbes Magazine's World's 100 Most Powerful Women three years in a row. Dr Rodin serves as a member of the board for several leading corporations and non-profits including Citigroup, Laureate Education, Inc., Comcast, and the White House Council for Community Solutions. Dr Rodin is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and earned her Ph.D. in Psychology from Columbia University.

Animal House movie clips: http://j.mp/1ux3yfL BUY THE MOVIE: http://amzn.to/rK8A7T Don't miss the HOTTEST NEW TRAILERS: http://bit.ly/1u2y6pr CLIP DESCRIPTION: Otter (Tim Matheson) makes a stirring defense of the Deltas' drunken shenanigans. FILM DESCRIPTION: Director John Landis put himself on the map with this low-budget, fabulously successful comedy, which made a then-astounding 62 million dollars and started a slew of careers for its cast in the process. National Lampoon's Animal House is set in 1962 on the campus of Faber College in Faber, PA. The first glimpse we get of the campus is the statue of its founder Emil Faber, on the base of which is inscribed the motto, "Knowledge Is Good." Incoming freshmen Larry "Pinto" Kroger (Tom Hulce) and Kent "Flounder" Dorfman (Stephen Furst) find themselves rejected by the pretentious Omega fraternity, and instead pledge to Delta House. The Deltas are a motley fraternity of rejects and maladjusted undergraduates (some approaching their late twenties) whose main goal -- seemingly accomplished in part by their mere presence on campus -- is disrupting the staid, peaceful, rigidly orthodox, and totally hypocritical social order of the school, as represented by the Omegas and the college's dean, Vernon Wormer (John Vernon). Dean Wormer decides that this is the year he's going to get the Deltas expelled and their chapter decertified; he places the fraternity on "double secret probation" and, with help from Omega president Greg Marmalard (James Daughton) and hard-nosed member Doug Neidermeyer (Mark Metcalf), starts looking for any pretext on which to bring the members of the Delta fraternity up on charges. The Deltas, oblivious to the danger they're in, are having a great time, steeped in irreverence, mild debauchery, and occasional drunkenness, led by seniors Otter (Tim Matheson), Hoover (James Widdoes), D-Day (Bruce McGill), Boon (Peter Riegert), and pledge master John "Bluto" Blutarsky (John Belushi). They're given enough rope to hang themselves, but even then manage to get into comical misadventures on a road trip (where they arrange an assignation with a group of young ladies from Emily Dickinson University). Finally, they are thrown out of school, and, as a result, stripped of their student deferments (and, thus, eligible for the draft). They decide to commit one last, utterly senseless (and screamingly funny) slapstick act of rebellion, making a shambles of the university's annual homecoming parade, and, in the process, getting revenge on the dean, the Omegas, and everyone else who has ever gone against them. CREDITS: TM & © Universal (1978) Cast: James Daughton, Stephen Furst, Tom Hulce, Mark Metcalf, Martha Smith, Mary Louise Weller, James Widdoes, Karen Allen, Tim Matheson, Bruce McGill, Peter Riegert, John Vernon, John Belushi Director: John Landis Producers: Ivan Reitman, Matty Simmons Screenwriters: Harold Ramis, Douglas Kenney, Chris Miller WHO ARE WE?

Watch the next episode about Kelly Acevedo here: http://bit.ly/1OYcGE7 Subscribe! https://www.youtube.com/c/seekerstories?sub_confirmation=1 Dr. Tiffany Anderson commutes four hours every day to work, each way. When she arrives, she takes over for crossing guard duty and welcomes each student on their way to school for the day. It’s just one of the ways she has taken a hands-on approach to turning around a flailing school district in a low-income neighborhood near Ferguson, Missouri. Dr. Anderson firmly believes in nurturing “the whole child” when they walk through the doors of her schools. This means needs like food, clothing, and healthcare must be addressed for disadvantaged students in order for them to have a level playing field and an ability to succeed. So, after balancing the budget and taking the school to an accredited level, Dr. Anderson installed a food pantry, laundry facilities, and a full clinic at the school. “When kids knew that we cared,” said Dr. Anderson, “There was almost like this light bulb went off, this willingness to try.” Join the Seeker community!

(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) 0:30 - Introduction 3:29 - Start of Presentation - Eugenie C. Scott, PhD 1:02:34 - Q & A Myths symbolize ideas, values, history and other issues that are important to a people. They may be true or false, mundane or fantastic; their significance is their meaning, not their narrative content. Science is a way of knowing about the natural world. Its conclusions tentatively may be true or false, but its significance is its explanatory power: one has confidence in the process of science, even though some explanations change over time. Myth and science thus seem very different, but each has been utilized by proponents of both sides of the Christian creationism and evolution controversy. Eugenie Scott, Founding Executive Director, National Center for Science Education Understanding, explores how this role is essential in comprehending (much less mediating) this persistent conflict.
