Please enter your email address here New partnership will provide donated items for hurricane victimsIn response to Hurricane Irma and the overwhelming generosity of the American people, the American Red Cross and Goodwill in Florida are establishing a partnership that will better serve Floridians affected by the hurricane during the recovery efforts.Throughout Florida, the Red Cross, along with its partners, is managing sheltering and relief efforts. This includes mobilizing thousands of trained Red Cross disaster relief workers and deploying truckloads of relief supplies. The organization relies on the generosity of its corporate partners with strategic in-kind donations of goods and services; however, unsolicited in-kind donations are many times burdensome and costly during a disaster relief operation.Goodwill is better positioned to accept, sort, store and distribute donations of clothing and household goods. People who would like to donate items can visit any Goodwill Industries Donation Center located throughout the State of Florida and designate their donation to Hurricane Irma. Individuals desiring to donate items for victims of Hurricane Irma can check with their local Goodwill to learn how donations will be handled. Goodwills in Florida will provide vouchers to the Red Cross that will be available for distribution to those affected by Hurricane Irma in Florida. Vouchers will be allocated based on need and can be redeemed for selected items in Goodwill locations throughout Florida.Goodwill is grateful for the generosity of our donors and shoppers. With their support, we can provide necessary items to those affected by the hurricane,” said Bill Oakley, Florida Goodwill Association Chairman and Goodwill Industries of Central Florida President and CEO. “This partnership shows the strength and magnitude of what collaboration can do.”“We are always looking for ways to operate more efficiently and ensure our donor dollars are reaching people in need after a disaster,” said Virginia Mewborn, director of disaster relief operations in Florida. “Our new partnership with Goodwill will ensure donated items are processed and distributed quickly to those in need.”Find Goodwill locations: www.goodwill.org/donate-and-shop/donate-stuffDonate to Red Cross Irma relief efforts: www.redcross.orgVideo link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gm1-HXLC74U&feature=youtu.beAbout the American Red Cross:The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission. For more information, please visit redcross.org or cruzrojaamericana.org, or visit us on Twitter at @RedCross.About the Florida Goodwill Association:The Florida Goodwill Association is comprised of nine autonomous Goodwill Organizations, each serving the people of a multi-county region. These organizations share a common mission: To help Floridians overcome barriers to employment and become self-sufficient. Through Goodwill’s services, more than 223,000 people were served in 2016 with a total economic impact of over $1.6 billion across the State. We provide employment, job training, and other community-based programs. At Goodwill, we believe that work creates the economic energy that builds strong families and vibrant communities. Work builds self-confidence, relationships, and independence. Everyone deserves a chance to have those things in life. Goodwill provides that chance.

Jane Holden, from South Leicestershire, was one of the runners who had planned to take part.She was running to raise awareness and funds for the Andrew Grene Foundation (AGF), a charity that aims to transform lives in Haiti. Undeterred by the cancellation, she has organised her own event in its place, naming it the Holden Haiti Half.Holden said: “The run fell on my birthday weekend and I had already planned a few meetings in Haiti on behalf of the AGF, so the timing of the run felt like fate.“I was asking friends and family to donate what they would have spent on birthday cards or chocolate on a small donation instead. I had planned for the fundraising money I raised to go towards the AGF education project, specifically a new sports court, with my target being £1,000.”How to organise a safe run in HaitiHolden says that she was “devastated” to hear that the official run had been cancelled.“Instead of accepting it, I was determined to do it even more. I wasn’t going to give up on Haiti.”She contacted Reconnaissance Group, the security company used by the AGF, and explained that she wanted to run a half marathon on her own in Haiti. Together they negotiated a plan to make her vision of a half marathon in Haiti a reality.She explained: “With the security team’s support, we have organised a safe route, staying out of areas that have been raised with security concerns in the city. There will also be a body guard closely escorting me in a car for added security.”The run will now take place on 25 February in Port au Prince.Holden acknowledged that she could have just run the half marathon in her hotel on a treadmill. “But it wouldn’t have been the right thing to do. “I was set on running a half marathon in Haiti, for Haiti and that’s exactly what I’m going to do.”She added that she hopes the event can continue. “If it’s successful,” she said, “I hope to organise a public event where runners can join me next year.”With corporate support from P3 Group, she is fundraising for the Andrew Grene Foundation via JustGiving.

Mundo Obrero editor disrupts Puerto Rico fiscal board meeting
The Fiscal Control Board of Puerto Rico learned a valuable lesson in Philadelphia at a forum organized by the University of Pennsylvania School of Law on Feb. 16.The lesson is that the saying, “There is no place in the world where there is not a Boricua,” is absolutely true.Most importantly the fiscal oversight board, which is imposing onerous austerity measures on Puerto Rico, learned there is no place where there is not a Boricua fighting for the islands’ self-determination and independence.Berta Joubert-Ceci, managing editor of Mundo Obrero/Workers World, learned of the forum with two-hours’ notice. Nonetheless, she became the sole but bold voice at the forum against the vicious austerity measures that are destroying Puerto Rico.Joubert-Ceci tried to organize others to go with her, but due to the short notice, she went by herself, with placards in hand.At the forum she let the conservative, reactionary forces know what is really going on in Puerto Rico. She took the floor armed with the placards that stated the board’s role was solely to benefit rich bondholders and bring more misery to the Puerto Rican people.She told the board, the students and others in attendance, “What this board has said are half-truths that hide what is really going on in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is a colony, and we do not have any sovereignty. The U.S. does what it wants with us, and this fiscal board is the tool to bring misery to the people.”She spoke truth to power for seven minutes and stayed for another hour, commenting loudly about some of the board members’ statements. As she exited the meeting, standing behind them, she shouted to the board, “Why don’t you go and tell these lies in the PR community? You are cowards, that’s why!”A picture taken by an anonymous person who posted it on Facebook — which has gone viral on Boricuas’ social media — shows Joubert-Ceci exiting the meeting with board members obviously upset about her truth telling. It has sent a clear, bold message to Washington: Puerto Ricans will fight back at every level until their island nation is free.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

That trend continued this week with the issuance of a new memo written by Mulvaney and distributed to CFPB staff. The memo, as reported by the Wall Street Journal, highlights an increased focus on considering the cost-benefit analysis of both regulations and regulatory enforcement imposed by the CFPB.According to the WSJ, the memo outlines Mulvaney’s plan to create an “office of cost benefit analysis” that will be tasked with evaluating the Bureau’s oversight and enforcement from a financial standpoint. That move will likely find support among critics of the Bureau who believe its regulatory actions can be overly burdensome on the industries the Bureau oversees. It is also consistent with the arc of Mulvaney’s tenure at the CFPB—a long-time critic of the Bureau before his appointment as Acting Director, Mulvaney in February issued a memo vowing to hew to the Bureau’s statutory responsibilities but go “no further.” In that memo, Mulvaney explained that “pushing the envelope in pursuit of other objectives ignores the will of the American people” and “also risks trampling upon the liberties of our citizens.”The CFPB strategic plan for 2018 – 2022 laid, issued in February, laid out three goals:Ensure that all consumers have access to markets for consumer financial products and services.Implement and enforce the law consistently to ensure that markets for consumer financial products and services are fair, transparent, and competitive.Foster operational excellence through efficient and effective processes, governance, and security of resources and information.You can read the full CFPB strategic play for 2018-2022 by clicking here.The WSJ also reports that the new memo formally installs Brian Johnson and Kirsten Sutton as aides who will serve as Mulvaney’s “representatives in each division.” The WSJ reports that, per Mulvaney’s memo, Johnson will serve as the “final stop on all things policy related” for Mulvaney and Sutton will serve as Mulvaney’s “lead on management issues.”Leadership of the CFPB was thrown into question last fall, following the surprise resignation of Director Richard Cordray. On his way out, Cordray named his Chief of Staff, Leandra English, as Deputy Director of the CFPB. However, President Trump then appointed White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney to head the CFPB. This kicked off a series of legal challenges between the two over who was the rightful leader of the organization, with Mulvaney eventually prevailing.On Tuesday night, ex-CFPB Director Richard Cordray officially clinched the Democratic nomination for the governorship of Ohio. Campaigning on both his history at the CFPB and a promise to focus on economic matters affecting Ohioans, Cordray defeated five other contenders during the Ohio Democratic primary, including former Congressman and Cleveland Mayor Dennis Kucinich.

Columbia University professor’s office vandalized with swastikas, anti-Semitic words
WABC-TV(NEW YORK) — A Columbia University professor’s office was painted with swastikas and anti-Semitic words, according to school officials.The professor, Elizabeth Midlarsky, told the Columbia Spectator that she was “in shock” when she walked into her office on Wednesday.“I stopped for a moment, because I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” she said.Midlarsky immediately notified school security.The NYPD said the “incident is under investigation by the Hate Crime Task Force. There are no suspects at this time.”Thomas Bailey, the president of Columbia Teachers College, where Midlarsky is a professor, condemned the act in a statement.“We unequivocally condemn any expression of hatred, which has no place in our society,” Bailey said. “We are outraged and horrified by this act of aggression and use of this vile anti-Semitic symbol against a valued member of our community.”Columbia University issued its own statement on the incident.“In light of last month’s horrific shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, and this hateful act closer to home, Jewish students and others in our community may be feeling especially vulnerable right now,” the school said.Midlarsky’s office was also vandalized in 2007. A swastika was spray-painted on her door and anti-Semitic flyers were left in her mailbox, the Columbia Spectator reported.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
