    FATE, Foundation Aiding The Elderly with Carole Herman

    in Family

    Guest: Carole Herman


    After a three-year uphill battle with apathetic officials, files that mysteriously disappeared, several closures of her Aunt’s case with no action, and a pattern of stonewalling by state agencies created to protect patients from abuse and poor care, two things happened: The district administrator of the agency that licensed and monitored nursing homes was fired and Carole Herman, who fought the system for three years, founded FATE, Foundation Aiding The Elderly.


    Carole protects the weak, fights the powerful, demands government do its job and doctor's to fulfill the Hippocratic Oath.


    In October 2001 Carole was a Volunteer Spirit Award winner receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award for her work with FATE on behalf of the elderly and in February 2002 Carole was presented with a Resolution from the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors for "her dedication and care for the elderly of our community."


    Today, FATE has affiliated organizations and colleagues fighting elderly patient's rights in Texas, Kansas, Ohio, Tennessee, Illinois, Nebraska, Oklahoma and South Carolina. FATE has helped families all over the country. Civil actions have been filed on behalf of patients and their families. And the movement to illuminate and reverse the all-too-common incidents of abuse such as neglect, psychiatric drugging and criminal assaults of the elderly is growing.


    FATE fulfills a vital and increasing need of providing direct action advocacy and education that will ensure that care is received with the dignity that everyone deserves.

    NAN Convention 2015

    in Politics

    Saturday, April 11, Governor of Maryland Martin O’Malley (D) will address the National Action Network’s Annual Convention (NAN) in New York City. O’Malley, who is also a possible 2016 presidential candidate, will deliver remarks at 10:00 a.m. on the final day of the 17th annual NAN convention led by civil rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton in New York at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers.


    This year’s annual convention arrives on the heels of a series of events that shined a bright light on the racial and civil rights challenges still plaguing America. It will be largest gathering of civil rights leaders since the tragedies in Ferguson, Staten Island and most recently, the tragic shooting of an unarmed man in South Carolina. Thousands of people are coming together – from faith leaders to business leaders to Obama Administration officials – to discuss ways to combat 21st century assaults on justice and equality.

    A Theory of Parenting - Sexual Assualt - Code Word "Transfers"

    in Parents

    Hello,


    Welcome to A Theory of Parenting on Blogtalkradio.com


    My name is Tammi Joyner


    I am your Host for the Show


    Today we have topic that we rate a PG.


    We would like to discuss with our audience and teens and parents


    the topic of STD.


    We looked up the topic at http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/sexually-transmitted-diseases-stds/basics/definition/con-20034128 and www.forensic-access.co.uk/body-fluids-forensic-science-sexual-assaults-rapes.asp


    Yes, Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), or sexually transmitted infections (STIs), are generally acquired by sexual contact.


    The organisms that cause sexually transmitted diseases may pass from person to person in blood, semen, or vaginal and other bodily fluids.


    Some such infections can also be transmitted nonsexually, such as from mother to infant during pregnancy or childbirth, or through blood transfusions or shared needles.


    It's possible to contract sexually transmitted diseases from people who seem perfectly healthy — people who, in fact, aren't even aware of being infected. Many STDs cause no symptoms in some people, which is one of the reasons experts prefer the term "sexually transmitted infections" to "sexually transmitted diseases."

    Behind the Headlines: Historical Revisionism in the 20th and 21st centuries

    in News

    Everyone has heard the term "those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." If that maxim is true, and if it is to be useful to everyone, then it is essential that we have access to an accurate account of history and the reasons why historical events occurred. 


    Most people would agree that war should be avoided if possible, yet in the 239 years since the American declaration of independence, the USA has been at war for 229 of those years. Were all of those wars necessary? If that isn't a repeating historical pattern, we don't know what is.


    The First World War was called "the war to end all wars" and yet, just 20 years later, an even worse conflagration consumed the Eurasian continent, killing 65 million people.


    The phrase "never again" is most often heard in reference to the genocidal policies of the Nazis towards the Jews of Germany and Poland, yet today a record number of Jews are fleeing Europe for Israel in the face of mounting anti-semitism.


    Apart from 4 military assaults on sovereign nations, the deaths of at least 2 million people and the creation of an extremely instable security situation in many parts of the globe, the almost 15-year-long US-led war on terror has created a distinct anti-Muslim climate in many Western nations that bears many of the hallmarks of the first waves of anti-Jewish sentiment in Nazi Germany. 


    So if we have an accurate understanding of history, why does it appear to continue to repeat? Is there something wrong with our official historical narrative?


    Behind the Headlines airs live this Sunday, 08 March 2015, from 3-5pm EST / 12pm-2pm PST / 7-9pm UTC / 8-10pm CET.

    Microaggression Same as Prejudice Behavior

    in Relationships

    Microaggressions are more than just insults and insensitive comments that show people's biases against marginalized groups leaving their victims feeling uncomfortable or insulted Remarks, questions, and actions  are painful because they have to do with a person's membership in a group that's discriminated against; they happen casually and often without any harm intended.  These racial assaults to black dignity  are incessant and cumulative.The major vehicle for racism in this country is offenses done to blacks by whites in this sort of gratuitous never ending way. These offenses are microaggressions. Almost all black: white racial interactions are characterized by white put-downs, done in automatic,  fashion. These mini disasters accumulate. Statements appear to be a compliment or a joke, but contain a hidden insult about a group of people.


    Since our thoughts often determine our actions, implicit bias can lead to discriminatory behaviors; it's no surprise race is a prime area for implicit bias, and if you live in America,There's a widespread preference for light skinned over dark skinned and white over black. The implicit associations we hold often don't align with our declared beliefs. Racial minorities can hold implicit biases against themselves, too. These results are rarely reflective of conscious attitudes. The most popular of these tests is the Implicit Association Test, or IAT. Anthony Greenwald and his colleagues invented it in the mid-1990s. mplicit racial bias can shape our beliefs and assumptions, color the way we treat other people, and even help decide what "feels true" for us when it comes to larger social and political issues.The sum total of multiple microaggressions by whites to blacks that has pervasive effect to the stability and peace of this world.

    Crisis Intervention - Strategies for Sexual Assaults

    in Training

    The National Violence Against Women Survey conducted in 1997 found that 1 in 6 women and 1 in 33 men in the United States had experienced an attempted or complete rape as a child and/or as
    an adult. These fisgures were arrived at with a definition of rape that includes forced vaginal, oral, and anal sex. Other studies range from 10 to 15 percent of men and 15 to 33 percent of women in this country. In 2002, 3 out of 5 sexual assault victims stated the offender was an intimate partner, a relative,  a friend, or an acquaintance.


    This broadcast deals mainly with adult males as perps and women or children as their victims. Adult males get raped too women are capable of some of the worst sexual and physical abuse imaginable on their own children. The majority of assaults are perpetrated on children and females under 25 years of age and from every segment of society. About 103,000 children are reported as having been sexually abused in our country out of 903,000 child maltreatment cases. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services estimates the true figure to be closer to between 250,000 and 350,000. Roughly 1 in 12 children surveyed indicated they had been sexually victimized in
    one study year alone! Statistics in nations of Asia, Africa, and Latin America are equally grim or worse with children being sold as child prostitutes or indentured servants.
