Since 2009, the President has provided proven tools to combat poverty, investing more than $350 million in 100 of the nation's persistent pockets of poverty. 
Building on those efforts, in his State of the Union Address earlier this year, the President laid out an initiative to designate a number of high-poverty communities as Promise Zones, where the federal government will partner with and invest in communities to create jobs, leverage private investment, increase economic activity, expand educational opportunities, and improve public safety.

Great question: what are the conditions that result in non-adoption by youth? #DML2014
imagine that the conditions.. are that we are expecting an adoption of something.. rather than simply listening.. so the conditions of non-adoption....anything compulsory.. anything with an agenda (other than the person's).. anything with a raised eyebrow..
we need to focus less on adoption of things.. and more on adapting.. to the flow of whimsy.. the chaordic ness of curiosity.. no?
