Celebrating Women’s Equality Day, 2014

Etched into the history of our Nation are the stories of women who fought for the America they knew was possible — a country where all are truly treated equally and have access to the ballot box, regardless of gender. It took generations of fearless women who organized and advocated to secure women’s right to vote, and on Women’s Equality Day, we honor these courageous heroes, celebrate how far we have come in the decades since, and acknowledge the work still left to be done.

 

In the 94 years since the 19th Amendment was certified, women have made strides in every facet of American life, and we have learned that our country succeeds when women succeed. More and more the world is looking to our daughters to lead us, to heal us, to employ us, to thrill us on fields of play, and to protect us on fields of battle. Even still, inequality and discrimination persist. Women, on average, continue to earn less than their male counterparts, and for women of color, the disparity is even wider. Outdated workplace policies force too many working parents to choose between fulfilling their family responsibilities, and the careers of their dreams. And far too many women know what it is to suffer from abuse or sexual assault.

Happy 98th Birthday to the National Park Service

 

 

From our spacious skies and fruited plains to our purple mountain majesties, the United States boasts some of the world’s most breathtaking natural lands. On August 25, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson created the National Park Service to formally protect and preserve these lands so people all over the world could experience America’s historic beauty and heritage for years to come.

 

Today, the National Park Service manages 401 national parks and memorials, which supported 238,000 jobs and pumped more than $26 billion into local economies last year. In fact, for every $1 we invest in our national parks, our economy sees $10 in return.

 

Take a glimpse at what the National Park Service has been working to preserve for 98 years, and follow the National Park Service and the U.S. Department of Interior on Twitter to see more of what makes America so beautiful.

Four Cases Of Police Brutality And Racism You Need To Know

 

Published on Aug 25, 2014

It’s been more than 20 years since the police beating of Rodney King led to the L.A. riots. More recently, protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, and all around the United States are furious over the police shooting of yet another unarmed black man — Michael Brown. AJ+ takes a look back at some of the most infamous police brutality cases that inform us now.

 

 

 

Audio of Mike Brown shooting contradicts the officers statement.

 

Published on Aug 26, 2014

This new audi clip contradicts the family friends statement about the shooting, told to her by the family of Officer Wilson. More than 11 shots were taken at Brown.

 

 

 

Darren Wilson Supporter Gets Scolded : Stupid jack*** after telling man “Lean to Speak English”

Officer Wilson supporters: Government and media choosing sides in Ferguson
(CNN) – The funeral for 18-year-old Michael Brown Monday drew thousands, including celebrities, civil rights leaders, and a White House delegation.
But for those seeking justice for the officer who killed Brown, the service was seen as another example of how the government and media are unfairly choosing sides in that deadly confrontation.
This weekend, supporters of Officer Darren Wilson gathered outside a south city St. Louis bar, popular with local law enforcement.
“My name is Darren Wilson. We are Darren Wilson,” a woman said to a cheering crowd.

 

 

 

“There Will Be Justice”: Mourners Speak Outside Michael Brown’s Funeral in St. Louis

 

Published on Aug 26, 2014

http://www.democracynow.org – Thousands of people lined up to pay their respects at Michael Brown’s funeral on Monday in St. Louis, Missouri. The killing of the 18-year-old African American by a white police officer in Ferguson has sparked weeks of protest and conversations about race, both around the country and in the local community. Democracy Now!’s Aaron Maté was in St. Louis and spoke with mourners as they filed into the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church. “I know about Martin Luther King, I know about Emmett Till, but I am actually living something that should have stopped years and years ago,” says local resident Anne Hamilton. “We just want, as African Americans, to be treated fairly and to be given the same advantages.” St. Louis resident Elwood Harris responds to the protests, which have at times involved looting. “What else can we do? We took the Martin Luther King approach, protesting and peace, but there is no peace, and there is no justice,” Harris says. “But there will be justice in this case, I really do believe.”

Statement from National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice on the Release of Peter Theo Curtis

 

For two years, we have kept Peter Theo Curtis, a U.S. citizen held hostage in Syria, in our thoughts and prayers. Today, we join his family and loved ones in welcoming his freedom. Theo is now safe outside of Syria, and we expect he will be reunited with his family shortly.

 

Just as we celebrate Theo’s freedom, we hold in our thoughts and prayers the Americans who remain in captivity in Syria. Notwithstanding today’s welcome news, the events of the past week shocked the conscience of the world. As President Obama said, we have and will continue to use all of the tools at our disposal to see that the remaining American hostages are freed.

 

Today, the American people share in the joy and relief that Theo’s family feels, and we look forward to his safe return home. We will continue to work tirelessly on behalf of all Americans who are held overseas so that they can be reunited with their families as well.

 

 

From The Desk Of Ms Lynn Sweet:

 

Biden hits Chicago for fundraisers for Quinn, House Dems

 

SWEET (12)

 

WASHINGTON — Vice President Joe Biden hits Chicago on Monday as 2016 presidential politics are percolating. If former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton does not run for president, Biden is the strongest alternative.

 

Biden’s day trip to the city is to headline fundraisers for Gov. Pat Quinn and the House Democratic political operation and to pitch a minimum wage increase with Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

 

With her book tour wrapped up, Clinton sparks the next round of frenzy over her 2016 White House ambitions when she returns to Iowa on Sept. 14 for Sen. Tom Harkin’s annual steak fry. It’s her first trip back to the state with the leadoff vote for the presidential nomination since she lost the Iowa Caucus in 2008 to Barack Obama and John Edward.

 

Clinton picks her spots, so she knows that her Iowa trip will be seen as a sign that she is getting more serious about jumping in the presidential contest. No one sees Biden running against Clinton.

 

But if she doesn’t run?

 

I’ll get to that.

 

First, a rundown on what will be an active political day Monday in Chicago.

 

While Biden is helping Democrats, the Republican Governors Association chairman, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, is in the city to boost GOP nominee Bruce Rauner and keynote two funders: one for the RGA, the other to benefit Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill. Christie will visit Rauner’s Loop campaign headquarters though Rauner won’t be there — he’s taking one of his kids to college. Christie is often mentioned as a possible 2016 White House contender, even with the New Jersey bridge controversy hanging over him.

 

Biden flies to Chicago in the morning and his first event is a fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee at the John Hancock Center home of Scott Kluth, the founder of CouponCabin.com. The price points: $5,000 per person; $32,400 for couples.

 

Later, Biden and Emanuel head to the South Side for a roundtable with small-business owners to tout raising the minimum wage, a major agenda item for President Barack Obama that’s going nowhere in the GOP-controlled House. Emanuel is Obama’s former chief of staff.

 

The White House and Democrats continue to press, because this issue can help turn out Democrats in November. Emanuel, highlighting progressive causes as he faces a possible 2015 mayoral challenge from Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis, wants a city minimum wage increase.

 

Finally, Biden is the draw at a Quinn campaign $15,000 per person fundraising dinner for about 30 at the Lincoln Park residence of attorney John Cooney.

 

Now, back to 2016.

 

Clinton supporters have created several organizations to build a political infrastructure for her as she mulls her future. But since a Clinton run is not inevitable, some Democrats are visiting Iowa, just in case.

 

Former Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., spent some of last week in Iowa, making the rounds. Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley has been to the Hawkeye state, as has former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer. They are anonymous and dull political figures.

 

Democratic Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York are among those also mentioned as potential 2016 candidates if Clinton declines to run. Their political stock is up, but they just are not that well-known.

 

Democrats will be in a panic if Clinton walks away.

 

Biden can appeal to the progressive wing of the party at a time progressive populism is growing in influence among Democratic activists. Biden is union. Biden is empathetic. Biden is foreign policy.

 

Biden’s giant challenge would be to separate himself from the Obama administration because he is part of it. Clinton has already been in some of those dust-ups. Biden is keeping the 2016 door open. As well he should.

 

 

Dr. Jill Biden in Chicago to talk about military families

 

090921-A-8880P-0011

 

WASHINGTON–Dr. Jill Biden flies to Chicago on Monday morning with Vice President Joe Biden. While he is off at political stops, Dr. Biden will deliver remarks at a lunch with spouses of past and present Adjutants General of the Army and Air National Guard.

 

The lunch is a related event of the National Guard Association of the United States’ 136th General Conference and Exhibition taking place in McCormick Place. Dr. Biden’s remarks will reflect on the work she and first lady Michelle Obama are doing on their signature “Joining Forces” project, launched to assist military families.

 

Vice President Biden,  is traveling to the city for two political events, fundraisers, to benefit Gov. Pat Quinn and House Democrats and a stop billed as governmental, a joint appearence with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to tout raising the minimum wage.press. My column with more detail on what Biden will be doing in Chicago–and some mulling on his 2016 prospects if Hillary Clinton does not run is HERE.

 

Thank you Ms. Lynn Sweet, welcome back from vacation.

Chart of the Week: Number of Americans Applying for Unemployment Benefits Lowest Since 2006

 

The economy is getting stronger thanks to the grit and resilience of American workers. Last month, total job growth exceeded 200,000 for the sixth straight month, the first time that’s happened since 1997. In fact, our private sector has added 9.9 million jobs for the last 53 straight months, the longest streak on record.

 

As the economy moves forward, the number of people who are applying for unemployment insurance is dropping. Just this week, the four-week moving average of initial claims for unemployment benefits hit their lowest level since 2006. And while this series can be volatile from week to week, a look at the longer-term picture shows the progress we have made. Take a look at where that number was during the Great Recession — and where we are now:

 

unemployment_insurance_chart

 

This chart shows that the four-week moving average of initial claims — a more accurate measure of unemployment claims than week-to-week data — has fallen to 293,500, the lowest level since February of 2006.

 

While we are making progress, there is still more work to do. President Obama’s priority continues to be restoring economic security for the middle class — and those working their way up to the middle class — to ensure that every hardworking American has the opportunity to get ahead. The President is committed to working with Congress to continue this momentum, but he won’t wait on Congress to do his job and invest in America’s economic growth.

 

Check out how the President is using his pen and his phone to create new manufacturing jobs, expand job training, make college more affordable, support equal pay and work flexibility, and strengthen security for America’s middle class.

U.S. launches first airstrikes in Iraq

US Airstrike Begins: 2 F/A-18 drops 500lb Laser-guided Bombs on ISIS near Erbil, Iraq

 

Published on Aug 8, 2014

URGENT – Iraq US Airstrike ISIS Details
BREAKING NEWS (CNN) — Two American F/A-18 aircraft dropped 500-pound laser-guided bombs on a “mobile artillery piece” used by ISIS at about 6:45 a.m. ET, Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said. ISIS was using the artillery to shell Kurdish forces defending Irbil, Iraq, where U.S. personnel are located, he said. The commander of U.S. Central Command made the decision to strike under authorization granted him by President Barack Obama, Kirby said.

 

US Carries Out Airstrike Against ISIS in Iraq
The United States carried out an airstrike against ISIS militants in Iraq today, targeting artillery, the Pentagon’s press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby said.

 

Kirby said two F/A 18 fighter jets dropped 500 pound laser guided bombs on a mobile artillery piece near Erbil, the capital of the Kurdish province. He said the artillery was being “used against Kurdish forces defending Erbil, near US personnel.”

 

The strike comes one day after President Obama authorized airstrikes in Iraq if necessary.

 

“We intend to stay vigilant, and take action if these terrorist forces threaten our personnel or facilities anywhere in Iraq,” Obama said.
Obama said there will be no U.S. troops on the ground.

 

“I will not allow the United States to be dragged into fighting another war in Iraq. And so even as we support Iraqis, as they take the flight to these terrorists, American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq,” Obama said.

 
It has been nearly three years since U.S. forces left Iraq, three years since Obama announced the war there was over. The last convoy of U.S. soldiers left Iraq in December 2011.

 

Administration officials believe the Iraqis are best-suited to deal with the threat of ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, over the long term.

 

“We’re laying down a marker here that even though [ISIS] is not penetrating Erbil, just their presence on the periphery, and the potential threat they pose, could lead us to take action if the targets present themselves,” an official told ABC News.

 

U.S. forces are conducting a difficult and dangerous humanitarian mission, with three U.S. Air Force cargo jets escorted by two F-18 fighter jets dropping critical supplies. In a race to stop a catastrophe, thousands of families who fled to the top of a mountain in Sinjar now face a worrisome predicament, battling blistering heat, pleading that there is no water or bread. Nearly 20 children have already died.

The U.S. aircraft dropped 5,300 gallons of water and 8,000 ready-to-eat meals.

 

Senior administration officials said air drops and humanitarian aid will continue “as we see need,” and the administration expects that need to continue.

 

The White House believes any action would be consistent with international law, because U.S. input was requested by the Iraqi government. Additionally, the administration believes that the president has the legal authority under the Constitution to act to protect U.S. citizens.

 

At this point, the United States is not evacuating Americans from Erbil, confident that the consulate is safe, administration officials said.

 

 

The Pentagon says two U.S. fighter jets dropped bombs on Islamic militants in Iraq towing artillery outside Irbil near U.S. personnel.

 

Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby says two F/A-18 jets dropped 500-pound bombs on a piece of artillery and the truck towing it.

 

President Barack Obama authorized such airstrikes Thursday when the Islamic state militant group advanced on Irbil, in northeaster Iraq, where U.S. military trainers are stationed.

 

Earlier Thursday, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the U.S. military has enough intelligence to clearly single out Islamic militants.

 

Hagel also said that more than 60 of 72 bundles of food and water airdropped onto the mountain reached the Iraqi religious minorities stranded there.

Police officer recorded criticizing Obama resigns

 

A central New Jersey police officer who was videotaped making disparaging comments about President Barack Obama and the Constitution has resigned.

 

Part-time Officer Richard Recine was called to the Helmetta town hall Monday because resident Steve Wronko was seen videotaping inside. Wronko insisted he had a constitutional right to make the recording.

 

On the tape, the officer says Obama has “decimated” the Constitution and “if he doesn’t follow the Constitution, we don’t have to.”

 

Recine told Bridgewater’s Courier News on Thursday it was a “stupid statement” and he was being sarcastic.

 

The 59-year-old Recine is a Democrat. He earned an hourly wage while collecting a $79,000 pension after retiring from the Franklin Police Department in 2006.

Martha’s Vineyard prepares for Obamas’ summer vacation

 

President Barack Obama and his family are heading to the wealthy island resort of Martha’s Vineyard for a three-week vacation starting Saturday, a near-annual ritual that islanders say is a boon to local businesses even if it comes with added hassles for vacationers during what’s typically the busiest tourist month of the year.

At Big Al’s, a sports memorabilia store in Oak Bluffs, owner Alex McClusky prominently displays “I vacationed with Obama” T-shirts he’s sold since the family’s first visit in 2008.

 

“The visits have been great for business,” he said. “He’s brought more people down because people want to see him.”

 

Island businesses capitalize on that.

 

Mad Martha’s ice cream shop will roll out an Obama-themed flavor in its three locations, as it has in previous years, said owner Patti Roberts. “Barack My World” features coffee ice cream with caramel swirl and macadamia nuts.

 

At Nancy’s, a popular Oak Bluffs restaurant serving fried clams, lobster rolls and other New England summer staples, owner Joseph Moujabber said he hopes the Obamas’ visit boosts a season that’s been slower than he would have liked.

 

“It’s nice to have him. Every time he comes to the island, he comes here,” Moujabber said during a lull in an otherwise busy lunchtime this week.

 

Regular summer residents, many of whom acknowledged they were Obama supporters, said they’ve come to accept the hassles.

 

“I don’t begrudge them the 10 minutes that I have to wait if they are coming through an intersection or if I can’t get a reservation at a restaurant,” said Lawrence Aber, a New York University professor who has vacationed on the island nearly every year since he and his wife honeymooned here nearly 40 years ago.

 

Residents and businesses on the island in the heavily Democratic state brush aside criticism Obama has faced for taking a prolonged vacation while the nation faces a number of intractable challenges.

 

“There’s always going to be a crisis,” Roberts said this week as she opened up the Mad Martha’s on Vineyard Haven’s main street. “It’s not like he’s turning off everything. We’re not a political forum here. We’re here to sell ice cream and make people smile. That’s what vacation should be.”

 

Some short-term vacationers, though, were less than enthused about the prospect of spending their limited time on the island navigating detours or sitting in traffic.

 

On Oak Bluffs’ rolling town green overlooking Nantucket Sound, Cara Pearson said she planned her visit in hopes of missing the president altogether. She leaves the day after the Obamas arrive.

 

“I imagine it would be a little chaotic here,” said Pearson, who works in Washington and said she’s well-acquainted with the presidential motorcade. “It’s just an island. Everything would be gridlocked.”

 

In Chilmark, on the western part of the island where the Obamas have stayed in and around nearly every summer, residents are breathing a sigh of relief that the president picked a less conspicuous vacation spot than before.

 

This year, the Obamas are renting a seven-bedroom, 8,100-square-foot house along the island’s Vineyard Sound side, far off the main roads.

 

Said Chilmark Town Selectman Warren Doty, “They’ll just be another quiet summer visitor.”

It’s usually someone jumping over the White House fence that causes Secret Service agents patrolling the grounds to scramble.

 

But on Thursday night, a toddler passing through slats in the gate caught the eyes of the gun-toting officers who are charged with protecting the president.

 

Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan says the child was returned to his parents. Neither the boy nor his parents were identified.

 

Donovan joked that agents were going to wait until the toddler learned to talk to question him about the incident, but says he instead was given a “timeout” and was returned to his parents.

Reuters: New Medicaid enrollments top 7 million under Obamacare

 

More than seven million Americans have gained health coverage through government programs including Medicaid since enrollment in Obamacare health insurance was launched October 1, the U.S. administration said on Friday.

 

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said 7.2 million new participants in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program by June brought overall Medicaid enrollment to 66 million people.

 

The enrollees include uninsured Americans who gained coverage through traditional Medicaid, as well as a special Medicaid expansion in 26 of the 50 U.S. states under President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

 

…. A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine estimated that 10.3 million uninsured Americans have gained coverage through the marketplaces and Medicaid, resulting in a 5.2 percentage point drop in the U.S. uninsured rate since last September.

President Obama and African leaders took part in three action-oriented sessions today as part of the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in Washington, D.C. The summit is the largest event any U.S. president has held with African heads of state and government, and builds on President Obama’s trip to Africa last summer.

 

In remarks at this morning’s opening session, the President explained the purpose of the event and noted the progress across the African continent — and what that means for America:

 

We come together this week because, even as the continent faces significant challenges, as I said last night, I believe a new Africa is emerging.  With some of the world’s fastest-growing economies, a growing middle class, and the youngest and fastest-growing population on Earth, Africa will help shape the world as never before.

Moreover, Africa’s progress is being led by Africans, including leaders represented here today.  More governments are embracing economic reforms, attracting record levels of investment.  Gains in development, increasing agricultural production, declining rates in infectious diseases are being driven by African plans.  African security forces and African peacekeepers are risking their lives to meet regional threats.  A new generation of young Africans is making its voice heard.

Africa’s rise means opportunity for all of us — including the opportunity to transform the relationship between the United States and Africa.  As I said in Cape Town last year, it’s time for a new model of partnership between America and Africa — a partnership of equals that focuses on African capacity to solve problems, and on Africa’s capacity to grow.  And that’s why we’re here.

Over the past couple of weeks, there’s been a lot of activity in Washington focused around strengthening our economic and diplomatic ties with Africa. Last week, President Obama took part in a town hall for the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, which is part of the President’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI). And this week, the President hosted the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, which brought 50 African leaders to Washington, making it the largest event any U.S. President has held with African heads of state and government.

 

During the summit, the President highlighted Africa’s impressive economic growth, and made clear that America will be a partner in its success — “a good partner, an equal partner, and a partner for the long term.” He also announced a series of steps that the United States is taking to boost trade and investments with Africa — commitments from the private and public sectors which total some $33 billion.

 

This is an important step for both the United States and Africa — and we want to spend a little more time talking about it with you this week. So Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes is taking to Twitter to answer your questions. Tomorrow, August 7 at 2 p.m. ET, join Ben Rhodes and the ONE Campaign for a Twitter Q&A on YALI and this week’s U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit.

5 reasons why Congress should fund educational children’s television

 

By Amy Jordan, contributor, The Hill.

 

The recent success of LeVar Burton’s Kickstarter campaign, which raised more than $5 million to bring back the classic PBS show “Reading Rainbow,” illustrates just how hungry Americans are for high-quality educational programming. I am wowed by the impact of crowdsourcing, but I am also worried that Congress will take this as a sign that it no longer needs to invest federal dollars into educational children’s television.

 

Federal funding has set up the infrastructure for a truly impressive Public Broadcasting Service and programming that would never otherwise have gained a foothold if left to the vagaries of the marketplace economy. Without the support of the American people, long-running series like “Sesame Street” might not have reached generation upon generation of children. Programs that teach literature (“Wishbone”) or science (“Bill Nye the Science Guy”) or computer literacy (“Cyberchase”) might never have found their audience. The evolution of government-supported educational media for children reflects not only imagination (Peg+Cat), but also serious research on what works and what doesn’t for kids’ TV created with learning — not selling — as the primary outcome.

 

1. Public television is free, and cable television is expensive.

A reasonable question might be: Why do we need federal funding to support educational content on broadcast TV when there are whole cable channels specifically devoted to children? Well, 10 percent of U.S. homes have only broadcast TV. And these broadcast-only homes, according to Nielsen research, are significantly poorer than the rest: The median household income for families with cable or satellite is almost twice that of families with only broadcast TV. While there are examples of high-quality programs on children’s channels like Nickelodeon (“Dora the Explorer”) and the Disney Channel (“Doc McStuffins”), they are the exception rather than the rule. The goal of their companies is to make money, not educate children (and I don’t have a problem with that). But neither of these channels does the kind of research that is essential to understanding how their lessons are being received, whether they are making a difference in children’s cognitive growth and, most importantly, whether they are reaching those children who can benefit most because they have the fewest resources.

 

2. The formula that works for the “marketplace” economy does not work for children’s educational television.

PBS shows aren’t designed to capture a huge audience. To be educationally successful, curriculum-based shows must be targeted to a narrow developmental age or stage. That’s why we see so many shows on commercial stations like Nickelodeon or the Disney Channel taking a different approach and teaching “prosocial” lessons — for example, the importance of being a good friend or the value of honesty. These shows need to appeal to a huge swath of the child audience (and therefore advertisers), but let’s be real: Kids have already learned these so-called lessons. Educationally driven shows aren’t designed with obvious licensing and merchandizing opportunities. Funding the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, PBS and the local public stations that make excellent children’s shows (such as WGBH in Boston) gives them greater freedom to create formats that are pedagogically sound, rather than commercially oriented.

 

3. The quality of educational television on stations that are mandated by law to provide educational content for children is dismal.

Although Congress passed the Children’s Television Act in 1990 and the Federal Communications Commission established clear guidelines spelling out exactly what kind of programming would count as “core” educational content (with a minimum of three hours per week), our studies at the Annenberg Public Policy Center reveal that many of the so-called E/I shows on broadcast TV are of dubious educational value. The network that stands above the rest in quality and educational value? PBS, according to a study conducted by researchers at the University of Arizona.

 

4. The research is clear: television shows that are designed to be beneficial really are beneficial, particularly for children with fewer educational opportunities in the home and community.

A landmark 2001 study conducted by Daniel Anderson and colleagues tracked children’s television viewing and academic success over 10 years. They found that children who watched educational programming like that found on PBS (at that time, “Barney & Friends,” “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” and “Sesame Street”) arrived at school more ready to learn. The advantage they received from exposure to educational fare during preschool years was still evident when the researchers re-contacted these children as high-schoolers. Controlling for the variables we know would affect adolescent academic success (including parent education, home environment and family income), child viewing of educational TV still predicted higher grades, reading more books and greater creativity.

 

5. What’s good for children who watch PBS can be good even for those who don’t.

Public broadcasting has served as a kind of Petri dish of ideas that commercial broadcasters and channels have appropriated — once they see that it works. Angela Santomero, creator of the Nickelodeon series “Blue’s Clues,” has said that “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” inspired her to create a host who would talk directly to children and invite them to respond because she saw that it worked for Fred Rogers. Other groundbreaking shows like “Bill Nye” and “The Magic School Bus” showed that TV can teach complex concepts (in fact, both of these shows found homes in syndication on commercial channels). PBS raises the bar, and families across the nation expect more and better for their children.

DOVER, Del. (AP) — The body of a two-star general killed in an Afghan “insider attack” has arrived at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.

 

A C-17 cargo plane carrying the body of 55-year-old Maj. Gen. Harold Greene landed Thursday morning at Dover, home to the nation’s largest military mortuary.

 

White-gloved soldiers solemnly carried a flag-draped metal case with Greene’s remains to a waiting mortuary vehicle as Army officials and other dignitaries saluted.

 

Greene is the highest-ranked U.S. officer to be killed in combat since 1970 during the Vietnam War. Greene, a 34-year U.S. Army veteran, also is the highest-ranked American officer killed in combat in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

 

Thank you Associated Press.
