JPMC focused on the lack of clarity around Nokia’s deal with Microsoft, announced last week, which would see Nokia using the software giant’s operating system on its smartphones.The deal announcement failed to reassure investors and followed the leak of an email from Nokia’s chief executive Stephen Elop that likened the company’s predicament to standing on “a burning platform”.

Suarez’s goal meant he became Barcelona’s outright third-highest scorer as he took his tally for the club to 195 goals.

MLK’s vision matters today for the 43 million Americans living in…

You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your name here By Joshua Inwood and first published on theconversation.comOn April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, while fighting for a 10-cent wage increase for garbage workers. These efforts by King were part of a broader and more sustained initiative known as the Poor People’s Campaign.King was working to broaden the scope of the civil rights movement to include poverty and the end of the war in Vietnam. King and his leadership team planned to bring thousands of poor people to Washington, D.C., where they would camp out on the National Mall until Congress passed legislation to eradicate poverty.King was convinced that for the civil rights movement to achieve its goals, poverty needed to become a central focus of the movement. He believed the poor could lead a movement that would revolutionize society and end poverty. As King noted, “The only real revolutionary, people say, is a man who has nothing to lose. There are millions of poor people in this country who have little, or nothing to lose.”With over 43 million people living in poverty in the United States today, King’s ideas still hold much power.The Poor People’s CampaignIn the last three years of his life and ministry King had grown frustrated with the slow pace of reform and the lack of funding for anti-poverty programs. In 1966, for example, King moved to Chicago and lived in an urban slum to bring attention to the plight of the urban poor in northern cities. His experiences in the South had convinced him that elimination of poverty was important to winning the long-term battle for civil and social rights.It was also at this time that King began to think about leading a march to Washington, D.C., to end poverty. King explained the campaign saying,:“Then we poor people will move on Washington, determined to stay there until the legislative and executive branches of the government take serious and adequate action on jobs and income.”King was assassinated before he could lead the campaign. And while the effort continued, the campaign could not meet King’s goals of poverty elimination, universal access to health care and education, and a guaranteed income that would keep people out of poverty.Why it matters todayA homeless person in New York. Jeffrey Zeldman, CC BY-NC-NDAt a time when millions in the U.S. are poor and disenfranchised, the Poor People’s campaign remains as relevant for the U.S. as it was 50 years ago. Consider the evidence:At least 1.5 million households in the United States with about 3 million children are surviving on cash incomes of no more than $2 per day.A 2017 United Nations report found infant mortality rates in the U.S. to be the highest in the developed world. Children alone comprised 32.6 percent of all people in poverty.The World Income Database found that the U.S. has the highest rate of inequality among all Western countries.Making this situation worse, many of the welfare and poverty elimination programs have been cut back or eliminated. A recent Washington Post investigation found that extreme poverty has nearly doubled since major welfare reform efforts in the 1990s under then-President Bill Clinton.How can King’s ideas help today?At the core of King’s anti-poverty message were two key ideas. The first was a guarantee that the federal government would provide every able-bodied American with a job. The second was for the federal government to provide a national basic income that would ensure a minimum concrete sum of money for every American regardless of their employment status.In his 1967 speech at Stanford University, King argued that the time had come to “guarantee an annual minimum – and livable – income for every American family.” The idea was to ensure every U.S. citizen would be able to live above the poverty line. King was assassinated before he could present a fully developed policy proposal.Currently, several Nordic nations, most notably Finland, are considering such a proposal. Two economists, Debraj Ray and Kelle Moene have argued that a universal income has the potential to boost GDP and productivity. The premise is that if you give people who currently lack means more money to spend, they will contribute to the economy through increased consumption of goods and services.On the anniversary of King’s death, as Americans ponder the unfinished work of the Poor People’s Campaign, I believe a guaranteed national income is one idea that needs to be examined.Joshua Inwood is an associate professor in the Department of Geography and a research associate in the Rock Ethics Institute.

The Cedar Island Residence is designed for connection—the house to its unique site on the banks of the Willamette River, and the members of the small family to one another. The home sits close to the river, so close that in order to prepare for potential floods the living spaces are lifted off the ground, stacking above concrete garages.Save this picture!© Peter EckertSave this picture!Plan – First floorSave this picture!© Peter EckertThese concrete plinths are marked with the high-water line of a historic 1996 flood, a subtle reminder of the power of nature and another connection point to the site and its history. Above, the home is divided into three volumes: a large family room and gathering space, a private bedroom wing, and a guest house—tethered to the rest by a suspended steel bridge. For the close-knit family togetherness was a critical design driver, so in lieu of smaller activity spaces throughout the house, the home’s only indoor gathering place is the great room.Save this picture!© Peter EckertLarge sliding doors and glass walls open the house out to the river and the clerestory windows around the great room enhance the sense of connection to the nature that surrounds the home.

On the picket line

first_imgWorkers protest to save Kroger jobsA fight to stop possible job loss led hundreds of members of Food and Commercial Workers Local 400 to rally outside Kroger’s Mid-Atlantic Division headquarters in Roanoke, Va., on June 12. When the grocery chain announced it had bought eight Farm Fresh stores and would reopen them as Kroger, the company claimed they would extend jobs to all Kroger workers. But a Farm Fresh sits across the street from a Kroger in Norfolk, Va., and it was rumored that the Kroger would close, leaving the workers transferred or fired.Flanking more than 300 UFCW members were five shopping carts stuffed with “Save our jobs” petitions requesting management keep their promise of jobs. To dramatize that, two clotheslines were strung up with 74 bright yellow union T-shirts — one for each job that would be lost — with a sign reading, “Don’t hang us out to dry.” (Roanoke Times, June 12) Though Kroger hasn’t yet responded, dramatic protest and rousing solidarity often win!Faculty unionize at two Oregon universitiesOregon Institute of Technology and Oregon State University faculty delivered union authorization cards to the Oregon Employment Relations Board on June 5. They were the last of Oregon public universities to unionize. Under state law, public employees are automatically unionized once a majority of the bargaining unit sign cards.The 172 full-time faculty, instructors and librarians at OIT became members of the American Association of University Professors. At OSU, the faculty of 2,400 joined the United Academics of Oregon State University, a joint project of AAUP and the American Federation of Teachers. AFT already represents graduate students, and support staff are members of Service Employees Local 503.Organizing committee member Darrell Ross says OSU faculty want a greater say in university governance and better working conditions, which have steadily deteriorated. “There’s increasing reliance on contingent faculty, [who] have little job security, they’re not paid well, and they often don’t know until the last minute if they’ll have their contracts renewed.” The union drive accelerated when academics from the University of Oregon and Rutgers University described how their unions improved working conditions and job security. (nwlaborpress.org, June 12)Unions unite with migrant workers to fight wage theftImagine spending 10 days roofing luxury condos in 100-degree heat in Pittsburgh and the boss doesn’t pay you! That was the outrage driving a rousing rally there on June 9, when members of building trades and painters unions united to fight together with five Guatemalan roofers who hadn’t been paid $5,000 for their work last summer. They demand that Stapleton Homes, the project’s developer, pay up.The rally marked the beginning of efforts by area construction unions to fight the growing trend of wage theft. Rather than pushing im/migrant workers away, buildings trades unions have begun to embrace im/migrant labor. “If we don’t step up and keep the pressure on [these contractors], they are just going to keep doing it,” said a Painters District Council 57 union representative.One of the Guatemalan workers told Payday Report that the injustice doubly affected the immigrant workers: “It’s just wrong. We have kids, [and] I have more family in Guatemala. … It’s not fair that we didn’t get paid.” (June 11)Workers are unstoppable once we uproot the myth that other workers are stealing “our” jobs — and we unite against the real enemy.Building trades’ apprenticeships help African-American, women workersWhen a building boom began in Pittsburgh several years ago, exposing a shortage of skilled building trades workers — carpenters, plumbers, electricians, steelworkers, etc. — the mayor issued two executive orders, with the cooperation of the historically white- and male-dominated building trade unions, to recruit African Americans and women to become union apprentices. A once-closed trade school in a Black neighborhood was reopened for pre-union apprenticeship classes.“This program changes people’s lives,” said Ron Sapp, a Black labor leader in Operating Engineers Local 66, who came out of retirement to become an instructor. He told Payday Report: “One of the good things about these [unions] is that you can have a record. … It’s no big deal.” Richard Broadus, a 46-year-old father of three who served five years for selling drugs, praised the program: “It’s given me a new outlook on life. Now I don’t have to do the same thing that I had to do before to provide for my family. I appreciate the opportunity to do better.”Over the past four years, more than 300 students graduated from the program, with 90 percent able to test into union apprenticeship programs. As Payday Report observes: “The stability of a union card equates to lifetime job security for many young people.” (June 6)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The said submissions were made in the series of petitions filed before the Delhi High Court seeking compensation for students who were allegedly attacked by the police, and registration of FIRs against police officers who allegedly indulged in brutality inside the University campus and library. Appearing for the Delhi Police, Additional Solicitor General Aman Lekhi argued that the protest march started by the students immediately became violent by destroying public and private property, blocking the roads, burning tyres and school buses, and destroying police barricades. ‘The intention of the mob was not to stage a peaceful protest but to indulge in crime and violence’, ASG argued. ASG further argued that multiple warnings were issued to the mob by the police through the loudspeaker; the students were informed that their gathering has been declared as unlawful. Despite this, the mob continued to indulge in arson and violence. ’20 policemen were injured due to the mob violence… the mob was completely out of control and did not pay any heed to the warnings’, ASG submitted. While calling the said protest a result of a deep rooted conspiracy, ASG contended that the ‘unruly mob’ created a situation of law and order with an intention to overawe the law. As pet the police report, the said mob was verging with an intention to commit culpable homicide amounting to murder. ‘Imagine what would’ve happened if the mob was allowed to succeed with its intentions…Their intention was that we’ll take the law in our hands and dare you stop us’, ASG argued. ASG also submitted that the observations made by the National Human Rights Commission in its fact-finding report also vindicates the stand of the police. Therefore, ASG argued, the gravity of the threat posed by the ‘unruly mob’ entitled the police to take the action which was taken. ‘University is a place of learning, not of violence and arson,’ ASG contended. Delhi Police will continue their arguments on September 18.Read the reports about petitioners’ submissions :Jamia Violence: ‘Purpose Of Police Attack Was To Threaten Students To Never Participate In Anti-CAA Protests’, Submits Sr Adv Gonslaves In Delhi HCJamia Violence: ‘Police Cannot Become A Judge In Its Own Cause’, Sr Adv Khurhsid Urges Delhi HC To Order Independent ProbeJamia Violence: Police Acted With Sheer Vindictiveness Against Students, Submits Sr Adv Jaising In Delhi HCJamia Violence: Blinded & Injured Students Urge Delhi HC To Direct Payment Of Compensation Next Storylast_img read more
