Statement by President Obama on the Canonization of Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II

Today, Michelle and I join Catholics around the world in celebrating the canonization of Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II.

The work and witness of both Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II shaped not only the Catholic Church but the world.  Pope John XXIII articulated powerful roles for the Church in the cause of global peace and justice, and by convening the Second Vatican Council he revolutionized not only aspects of worship but the Catholic Church’s relationship with other faith communities.  Pope John Paul II helped inspire the Solidarity movement in Poland, a movement that spread and eventually helped to end communism in Eastern Europe, and he spoke out forcefully against apartheid in South Africa and genocide in Rwanda.  He had a special rapport with young people, drawing many of them to the Church’s work and teachings.

We celebrate these Saints and the leadership of His Holiness Pope Francis, and we look forward to continuing to work with Pope Francis and Catholics around the world to advance peace and justice for all people.

U.S. Justice Department To Start Collecting Data For Racial Bias Arrest Study.

U.S. Justice Department to collect, study arrest data for racial bias






The Hunted and the Hated: An Inside Look at the NYPD‘s Stop-and-Frisk Policy


Published on Oct 9, 2012

A secret audio recording of a stop-and-frisk in action sheds unprecedented light on a practice that has put the city’s young people of color in the NYPD’s crosshairs. Read the full story at:http://www.thenation.com/article/1704…




Immigration Reform Rally


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Justice Department on Monday said it will begin collecting data on stops, searches and arrests made in five U.S. cities to weed out possible racial biases within the criminal justice system.

Later this year, a $4.75 million federal grant will be awarded to recipients who compete for the funds to work with their local law enforcement to analyze arrest data and find ways to reduce any biases they find, particularly toward young minority men.

Black men were six times more likely, and Latino men were 2.5 times more likely, to be imprisoned than white men in 2012, according to Justice Department data.

Attorney General Eric Holder said the data collection effort is in response to President Barack Obama’s call for better relations between law enforcement and young men of color following the “not guilty” verdict in the shooting death of black Florida teen Trayvon Martin.

“Racial disparities contribute to tension in our nation generally and within communities of color specifically, and tend to breed resentment towards law enforcement that is counterproductive to the goal of reducing crime,” Holder said in a video address released Monday.

The grants for data collection align with the goals of the Obama administration’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative that supports efforts by nonprofits and businesses to address the high murder rate and low educational performance among young minority men.

Negneg Farm with a dish of amazing penne, arugula and sausage

Originally posted on Good Food Everyday:


I have often written here that the island’s pork is one of the most superior in both texture and taste and I am sharing with you today my lunch of a simple but most delicious plate of pasta with arugula and local sausage that is made with coriander seeds, garlic and flat leaf parsley. If you do not live on the island use a continental type sausage or merguez and you will find the recipe at the end of this post.

And one day last week we drove to an isolated farm situated in the remote hills past the Tower of ‘Allis’ beyond the chapel of Santa Maria and up to an area known as that of ‘God and his Mother’ until we finally reached Negeg Farm where I met Leli, now 74, and his two sons George and Marco. I basked in the glow of their Mediterranean welcome. For…
