The 2010 Census forms are being delivered throughout the country this month. The U.S. Census counts every resident in the United States, and is required by the Constitution to take place every 10 years.
The Census will help communities receive more than $400 billion in federal funds each year, that's why is so important you answer the simple 10 short questions and then mail the form back.
This Sunday, Cynthia will interview different people in the community that will tell us how the results of the Census will influence us all. Don't miss this informative show!
Census literally means an official count of the population, which the U.S. Constitution mandates being conducted every ten years. Since 1790, 22 censuses have been taken, and in March 2010, a simple questionnaire will be sent to every household in the United States. The questions ask you to provide information that is accurate for your household, which is completely confidential. The census counts all people living in the United States, regardless of citizenship, race, ethnicity or age. The U.S. Census Bureau cannot share an individual’s answers with anyone, including welfare and immigration.
Solving the Problem with the 2010 Census
The 2010 Census will help determine the distribution of roughly $400 billion a year in federal funds to state and local governments, and for every person not counted, Illinois will lose $12,000 over the next 10 years.
Low-income, immigrant, minority and rural communities have historically been undercounted in
the once-a-decade survey, which is mandated by the U.S. Constitution. With the sagging
economy and billions of federal dollars at stake, not only are these underserved populations
disproportionately affected, but residents throughout the state will be harmed if the count is not accurate."

Live and Learn in Kenya in Second Life
Since January 2010 Live and Learn in Kenya NGO is also online in the Second Life virtual charity community – Nonprofit Commons. The managers of the Nonprofit Commons go through every detail of an organization’s registration form to assure itself that it really is a charitable non-profit organization and not a computer scam. LLK operates from a virtual office where people can come in and inform themselves about our work in Kenya, look at photos and, if an LLK member is present, hold a conversation. There are real people behind all of the so-called avatars, so real conversations are held – as well as meetings – either by typing your message or by speaking over a microphone. A child in Kenya – the orphan, Veronica has already been sponsored through a Second Life contact, which makes it all worthwhile.

Why is American Health Care so expernsive? Why does the US claim they have the best health care system? Has the health care become a big money making scam? Here is some food for thought: "What is the appropriate word to use when you find out that the top executive at the third largest health insurance company in America raked in 68.7 million dollars in 2010? How is one supposed to respond when one learns that more than two dozen pharmaceutical companies make over a billion dollars in profits each year? " Tune in to find out.

Who are the Dallas 6?
At SCI Dallas (PA), after a series of abuses at the hands of corrections officials, some prisoners housed in the solitary confinement unit decided they had enough and decided to stage a protest in response to the inhumane conditions and mistreatment of prisoners. They decided it was time to do something about the inhumane conditions, immediately, before another prisoner dies or is brutally harmed. Each prisoner involved in the protest is now collectively referred to as the Dallas 6. They are Andre Jacobs, Anthony Locke, Anthony Kelly, Carrington Keys, Duane Peters and Derrick Stanley.
On April 28th 2010, prisoner Isaac Sanchez was subjected to a planned attack by the Restrictive Housing Unit (RHU) staff, forcibly removed from his cell and brutally beaten by officers in riot gear. Sanchez was subject to this attack as a result of speaking out against the abuse at Dallas prison on behalf of his fellow comrades. After being told they were next, Dallas 6 barricaded themselves in for protection and covered their cell windows. They asked for outside intervention but instead were beaten, electroshocked and peppersprayed. They filed complaints against the DOC and 3 months later, in retaliation, they were charged with riot.
As revealed in the Human Rights report, there has long been a policy within the prison walls of Dallas and the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections (DOC) to operate a corrupt administration under an iron wall of silence. The DOC, State Police, DA's office work in conjunction to railroad these men. On January 21, 2014 these men are facing trial for these bogus charges. There is a campaign underway to dismiss the charges and I am reaching out for awareness and support.
