    The Agenda: Turbulence returns for Abbott Government and data retention

    in Politics Progressive

    Australia's federal government after hitting the reset button (again) are finding themselves once again facing turbulent times. Not long after the fever-pitch of a leadership spill the leaks started again. It seems that this government with the current leadership cannot or will not accept that they need to change the style. 


    And on top of the turbulence in the Abbott Government, it turns out the so-called progressive Labor Party will acquiesce to the ruling government on data retention and further destroy Australians civil liberties.


    Join the team as they vent their spleen. It's always more fun with you!

    What to Expect in Employment Agency Hearings

    in Legal

    Hearings with agencies are usually performed with the parties, their attorneys, and the administrative law judge over the phone. Administrative law judges handle issues strictly pertaining to employment and are well versed in rules and cases relating to their particular area of law. Sometimes attorneys are involved and other times clients represent themselves pro se. Generally speaking, an employment hearing is like a mini trial where you will present your witnesses and cross examine the other side’s witnesses. You are able to submit documents which you may wish to enter as evidence in advance to both the judge and opposing party. It helps to have these clearly identified and readily accessible during the hearing, especially considering its telephonic nature. You are usually able to have both a closing and opening statement as well. Do not expect a decision at the conclusion of the telephone conversation. The decision will come in writing and it could take several months before any such decision is rendered.


    Tune in to this podcast with Heidi Kuffel to learn more about what to expect during an employment agency hearing.

    EGUA - Marketplace: Nokwarefo ne Amammere: Self-Employment & Ancestral Culture

    in Education

    In this episode of EGUA - Marketplace we examine the intersection of self-employment and Ancestral Culture. We are mandated by Nyamewaa-Nyame (Supreme Being) to fully utilize the capacities we have been given to execute our Divine function in Creation. This includes our interactions with one another as Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) inclusive of trade, commerce and entrepreneurship. This is addressed in the context of our OKOM - Economic Development Model.


    We examine our NOKWAREFO program wherein we provide the opportunity for Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans) to become self-employed as distributors of our books on various aspects of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion, Culture, Trustory and Nationbuilding/Restoration.
