We ought to think that we are one of the leaves of a tree, and the tree is all humanity. We cannot live without the others, without the tree.” – Pablo Casals

me2013 Racism” is about a lack of knowledge and understanding, about a particular culture, or a group of people, and the person/s are happy with their lack of knowledge and understanding. It mainly has to do about power over a particular group of people. This, of course leads to “ignorance”. “Racism” is about “ignorance“. That stated it is not that they do not know the rules.  These arrogant  people think it does not apply to them and play the tune that they are: confused, mistaken or unclear when helping each other cover-up their mistakes. What should be happening is that the confused, mistaken or unclear public official should retire and not before their bad practices are brought to light within the public domainContinue reading

Foster Care

Foster Care

Foster care is the term used for a system in which a minor who has been made a ward is placed in the private home of a state certified caregiver referred to as a “foster parent”.  The state via the family court and child protection agency stand in loco parentis to the minor, making all legal decisions while the foster parent is responsible for the day to day care of said minor. The foster parent is remunerated by the state for their services.  Foster care is intended to be a short term situation until a permanent placement can be made:

  • Reunification with the biological parent(s)
  • When it is deemed in the child’s best interest. This is generally the first choice.
  • Preferably by a biological family member such as an aunt or grandparent.
  • If no biological family member is willing or able to adopt, the next preference is for the child to be adopted by the foster parents or by someone else involved in the child’s life (such as a teacher orcoach). This is to maintain continuity in the child’s life ~ Wikipedia

Judge tells ex-wife of millionaire horse surgeon: ‘go out to work’

 Judge tells ex-wife of millionaire horse surgeon: ‘go out to work’

Via Resolution calls for sweeping changes to laws on divorce and separation.

An appeal court judge has told the ex-wife of a millionaire horse surgeon to seek employment, warning that she has no right to expect “an income for life” at her former husband’s expense.

In a decision that may have wider ramifications for the ex-partners of wealthy spouses, Lord Justice Pitchford said divorcees with children aged over seven should work for a living.

The comments were made as he rejected a challenge by mother-of-two Tracey Wright to a decision by a family court judge to slash her future maintenance.

Wright, a 51-year-old former legal secretary and riding instructor, had opted not to be a working mother when she split up with her husband Ian in 2008 after 11 years of marriage. Continue reading

Ex-New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver Indicted On 3 Charges

Ex-New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver Indicted On 3 Charges

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As in most countries with a British heritage, the speaker presides over the lower house of the legislature. The position exists in every U.S. state and in the United States House of Representatives, the lower house of the Congress. New York’s Assembly Speaker is very powerful.


NEW YORK (AP) — Former New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver was indicted Thursday on three charges after his arrest in a federal bribery case.

The indictment was returned in Manhattan federal court, where he appeared briefly last month when he was freed on bail just a day after sharing the stage with Gov. Andrew Cuomo during his State of the State address.

The indictment doesn’t add to the charges against Silver when he was arrested, but it’s a critical step that provides a legal roadmap for prosecutors’ presentation of evidence at trial. Two conspiracy charges contained in a criminal complaint were not included in the indictment, though no explanation was offered.

Silver will now have to enter a plea at an arraignment scheduled for Tuesday to charges that include two forms of honest services fraud, plus extortion under the color of official dutiesContinue reading

Forty-five ‘saved from traffickers’

Forty-five potential victims of human trafficking were rescued in Northern Ireland last year, according to the National Crime Agency.


They said they were subjected to domestic servitude, labour or sexual exploitation, the NCA said.


One girl and three women said they had been sexually exploited.

Twenty-two of those rescued were Romanian, 10 were from China and others were from Albania, Vietnam and Lithuania.


In all, 30 adults said they had been exploited for cheap or free labour – 23 of them were men and seven were women.


The figures, published in the National Referral Mechanism Statistics End of Year Summary 2014, are 10% higher than in 2013.


Staff at Belfast International Airport have been trained by human rights organisation, the International Justice Mission (IJM), to spot trafficking victims.


Its UK chief executive, Terry Tennens, said: "The vast majority of trafficking victims come from backgrounds of poverty, which makes women and girls especially susceptible to traffickers’ schemes of deception.
