PAN-HCBU ORCHESTRA MARKS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

An all-star college student band will help us celebrate Memorial Day Weekend - hopefully we'll do it stylishly, respectfully, and contemplatively. It's the American way, unfortunately, to morph every holiday (holy day) into a buying, selling, and playing opportunity. Christmas is reduced to gift giving, Labor Day becomes a carnival jump-up.  And whose ancestors can be "hallowed" (greatly revered and...

ABORTIONS PREVENTED BY REPUBLICANS

An Abomination!  Alabama Republicans have just recently passed the most restrictive Anti-Abortion laws in the nation, if not the world. Women have been protected country-wide under Roe v. Wade which has been considered “Settled Law”. Since it has been in effect for about fifty years, it should have been left alone. Politicians should find new laws to enact –...

How To Improve Your Employability With Free Training Or Education

It is very interesting to me that there are people running around today saying that a free education is not possible. But maybe it still is. I took a few free courses a long time ago at CCNY = Community College of New York. People are paying now, I think, but there is some talk about making all Universities...

MAY DAY 2019

(Editor's note:District Council 37, New York's largest public sector union will be one of the organizations participating in this evening's May Day celebrations.  They will gather at West 61st Street, and march to Trump Tower) The modern history of May Day is closely tied to the labor union movement and, indirectly, to the creation of the fall "Labor Day" celebration. ...

HEALTH CARE – A PAST & CURRENT OVERVIEW

There is evidence that Chiropractic services were available in Ancient Egypt as were Psychological services as well, so we are not necessarily talking about something new or unknown or un-proven.
