Jobs – Helping men & women of all ages to Achieve Their Full Potential!
We here at Project PHD believe that advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time & more about changing systems (as we know them) to help all of us. We are all connected & interdependent. We all win when a person has the dignity of receiving a paycheck. When a person has his/her dignity (a job) research shows that the children of parents earning a paycheck succeeds far better in school than those with parents who do not receive a paycheck from working. When families are financially stable; our churches, communities, states & country as a whole is a lot healthier & more secure.
The Mission of Project PHD is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of the unemployment & underemployed problems. We will build the strongest representation for employment this country has ever seen allowing us a bargaining seat at the Federal, State, & local levels with the kind of leverage that makes an impact. By you working with us with one voice means you are actively being a part of this much needed change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. “Join Us To Speak With One Voice!”
Take A Stand: Change an unemployed or under-employed person’s life. Restore their human dignity with a job by becoming a PHD partner.
Queen Vashti possessed dignity. She knew what was at stake when she refused to obey the order of her King, her Husband. Are you courageous, comfortable enough to do the unspeakable to maintain your self worth? Do you care more about your emotional, spiritual, economic and/or mental wellness or do you compromise your dignity for the selfish desires of others? Listen in today as dignity is spotlighted for the disciple.
Shackles an affront to 'dignity and decorum' of court, appeals panel rules
By MAURA DOLANcontact the reporter
An appeals court Tuesday struck down a policy of routinely handcuffing and shackling pretrial detainees appearing before judges in the San Diego-based federal court district.
A three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said the Southern California district has not adequately justified its policy, adopted by the district judges in 2013 on the recommendation of the U.S. Marshals Service. The restraints include leg shackles and handcuffs linked to a belly band by a 15-inch chain.
"Demanding Justice and Dignity for OUR Children"

Dignity in Schools Campaign
Racial Justice NOW !
A South Carolina Black female student was brutally attacked, thrown from her seat and tossed across the room by a school police officer even though she had obeyed orders to put her cellphone away. Police intervention was employed when her teacher did not think that she put it away fast enough, Horrified students watched and video taped the incident. Where are Black children safe? How can this girl's humanity be so blantantly challenged?
Roxane Gay (NYT) writes: "Far too little attention is being given to who the young girl is...When that officer saw her, sitting quietly, defiantly, she was not allowed to be human. She was not allowed to have a complex story. She was held to a standard of absolute obedience. She was not given the opportunity to explain the why of her defiance because she was a black body that needed to be disciplined by any means necessary."

Today's show is a tough one, as I have a very special guest on the show to discuss her feelings about the controversial Death with Dignity program offered by Oregon as an option to terminal patients with 6months to live or less. It is a lethal dose of barbituates self administered by the patient who is looking die when THEY say, around the people THEY choose and without the pain they most certainly would face, otherwise. My guest, a close personal friend, is the widow of a man who had the same disease Brittany Maynard had, only unlike Brittany Maynard, her husband did not have that option. We will take a very emotional and painful look at the weeks leading up to and the day of her husband's death.
I will take calls, even if you oppose Death with Dignity. HOWEVER, you better be respectful or your off air, no warning given.
Thank you for listening.

The closest the Supreme Court has come to embracing the anti-humiliation principle is through its use of the term “dignity.” This link should be intuitive—what, after all, is the opposite of “humiliation” but “dignity”? Ackerman recognizes this nexus, but his discussion of it is tantalizingly brief.26 He acknowledges that the link between human dignity and the anti-humiliation principle may be unfamiliar to American constitutional lawyers, given that, in contrast to other jurisdictions, our constitutional traditions are built around the concepts of equality and liberty.
Warren was simply calling upon judges, and the rest of us, to make common-sense judgments about the prevailing meaning of social practices. One of the greatest legal thinkers of the era, Karl Llewellyn, persuasively argued that judges couldn’t decide the most humdrum case without relying on this capacity, which he famously called “situation-sense.”It was Louis Brandeis, not Thurgood Marshall, who first used social science to convince courts to consider the real-world impact of their doctrines. As early as 1908, the Supreme Court relied heavily on his famous “Brandeis Brief” in upholding maximum-hours laws for women. During the following decades, the law schools became centers of sociological and economic critique of the regnant legal formalism The Anti-Humiliation Principle and Same-Sex Marriage Kenji Yoshino
True death with dignity is trusting in our Lord God that He is seeing to the perfect timing of our personal death. We find dignity in God’s will. Nowhere else!
I’m afraid the so-called “death with dignity” movement has the potential to become a rapidly growing problem. We Christians and all those who wish to follow the truth of Jesus and His Church or even just the truth of natural law have a duty to do all we can to bring the light of truth to the culture on this vital life issue.
Jesus literally put the death we fear so much to death so we can be happy with Him forever. Nothing good comes from trying to take shortcuts form the cross.
Our heavenly Father is bringing a great good out of our pain and suffering when we unite it to Jesus on the cross.
As very horrible as it was I thank God for my cancer. It was a gift like no other gift that had the efficacy of bringing me closer to God than I ever would have any other way. It also brought my family closer to God. And there is no price too high to grow in union with God. I can frankly say that I would not trade my cancer journey for anything.
Just because you’re a person in pain or disabled does not mean that you are less of a person. While the public "TV" view of those with pain, disabilities or special needs is championed there is a different application given to us every day. Where it is fun to do a social event for us and get all kinds of credit from other "normal" people, when it comes to the everyday care for a majority of those with pain we are not considered worth the extra effort needed to take care of us in a busy world.
In a busy world you must take responsibility for your own care.
You need to know what can help you, whiners are not listened to because they are more fixed on their troubles rather than the solution to their problems. With so many individuals in need and a major portion of those individuals positioning themselves for a pity party that is difficult to sort out what is being said to healthcare providers.
Healthcare providers need proactive patients that know who they are, that understand their own situation before they get to the office to be one of many individual patients.
That said; we do have a set of basic rights that provide healthcare professionals tools to provide better service, better care to us.
We will talk about the three kinds of how to act assertive at the same time we talk about our basic rights..
Assertiveness acts in a non-hostle way, is not aggressive.....Assertiveness does not hold back- never acts in a non-assertive way, is not aggressive
Good Assertiveness --- states positively, affirming, declares with assurance
