“I believe that deep within our being as a nation there is a longing for a moral movement that plows deep into our souls,” he writes. “We are flowing together because we recognize that the intersectionality of all of these movements is our opportunity to fundamentally redirect America.”

Meanwhile, the credibility of those who argue that employers “can’t afford” to raise pay — McDonald’s paid its C.E.O. $9.5 million last year — is nil.

The city's vision was all based on detailed feedback from current residents. "In a couple of months we were able to gather over 30,000 markings made by thousands of people," says Manninen. "The answers have been published as open data for anyone to use. This is one aspect in which we have been showing the way for many other cities that are dealing with questions concerning public participation."
Helsinki's draft plan for 2050 will likely be approved next year, after more citizen feedback.

5 min on the finger for 50000  yen "Decarbonizing, Democratic Smart Communities."http://t.co/sAxY09HHK7
#smartcity http://t.co/5LPCvcELlf

Original Tweet: https://twitter.com/bratton/status/546190459949694977
What has hitherto been absent from Japan’s – not to mention the global – debate on smart communities is an explicit statement that their core is energy. What has also been missing is a powerful engine for their diffusion and democratization. We are now getting both from the Japanese, and at a time when these are undeniably urgent matters for all countries.
Consider the confused international debate over smart cities. LSE Senior Urban Fellow Adam Greenfield, in his “Against the Smart City,” lambasted such corporate-led, resource-intensive smart cities as Songdo (South Korea) and Masdar (Abu Dhabi).37 Greenfield’s work lacks, however, engagement with the imperative of building resilient decarbonizing smart communities in the face of extreme weather, unsustainable energy, and the numbing prospect of large infusions of greenhouse gases associated with India’s and China’s mega-urbanization. 
popular movements have not been very successful in leading an energy shift or articulating a vision of resilient, decarbonizing and democratic smart communities. Yet as the stadtwerk-centred smart communities unfold, civil society may be empowered to act more decisively. That is, popular movements, local business, and other elements of civil society will create roles for themselves in the emerging institutional context and economic opportunity.

Cities stand to be empowered to ensure that the community's interests are served by the interests running their core lifeline infrastructures.

The anti-ethnic studies law passed by the state prohibits teachings that "promote the overthrow of the United States government," "promote resentment toward a race or class of people," "are designed primarily for pupils of a particular ethnic group," and/or "advocate ethnic solidarity instead of the treatment of pupils as individuals."


In 2010 the sixth circuit upheld the firing of high school teacher Shelley Evans-Marshall when parents complained about an assignment in which she had asked her students in an upper-level language arts class to look at the American Library Association's list of "100 most frequently challenged Books" and write an essay about censorship. 
fatally, the court concluded that "government employees… are not speaking as citizens for First Amendment purposes." While the sixth circuit allowed that Evans-Marshall may have been treated "shabbily", it still maintained (quoting from another opinion) that "when a teacher teaches, 'the school system does not "regulate" [that] speech as much as it hires that speech. Expression is a teacher's stock in trade, the commodity she sells to her employer in exchange for a salary.'" Thus, the court concluded, it is the "educational institution that has a right to academic freedom, not the individual teacher."

"Among Inuit and Sami people, there is an explicit need for children to learn self-regulation. Adults keep a reticent and tactful distance. A child "is learning on his own" is a common Sami expression. Sami children are trained to control anger, sensitivity, aggression and shame. Inuit people stress that children must learn self-control – with careful emphasis. The child should not be controlled by another, with their will overruled, but needs to learn to steer herself or himself."

“They [terrorists] entered our classroom as we were sitting with our teacher,” said Irfanullah, who was shot in the chest and is currently recovering in hospital. “She seemed to understand what was going on before we did because she immediately stood up and prevented the terrorists from targeting us,” he added.
According to a tearful Irfanullah, Ahmed told the terrorists that she would not allow them to shoot her students. “She was so brave,” he said. “Her last words to the terrorists were: ‘You must kill me first because I will not see my students’ bodies lying in front of me,’” he added.
Irfanullah says the Taliban didn’t seem to care about anything she said and immediately threw something on her body. “The next thing we knew, she was on fire,” he said. “Even while burning, she shouted at us to run away and find refuge.”

  1. Heard is a social news network that vets sources while preserving anonymity. The platform allows for dynamic, free-flowing social conversations similar to those seen at a party where crowds gather around storytellers, and form and disperse naturally as conversations change. The app uses matching and reputation engines to help content find the right audiences, without users needing to search, follow, or friend others.
  1. Meetey is a location-based app that lets you share and enjoy moments happening around you. The network creates a quick and easy way of connecting and engaging with people in the area. Users are also able to share and consume local content in the anonymous mode. Meetey is launching at Web Summit and aims to be the “go-to” app when you want to see what’s happening in your area.
