    Dr. Nicholas Harlep on the Assault on Communities of Color

    in Books

    Join me for an in depth cultural conversation with Dr. Nicholas Hartlep, author of The Assault on Commuities of Color and Model Minority Stereotype: Demystifying Asian American Success. We will explore the realities of race-based violence in communities of color. What are some of the present day drivers to the violence we are witnessing? What has been the historical past in engagement with communities of color.  The Asian-American student population supposedly scores off-the-charts on high-stakes college admission tests, such as the SAT. Public perception of Asian-American success is evidenced in the phrase “the Asian invasion” — the notion that Asian-Americans are overrepresented on college campuses. Dr. Hartlep sheds light on percieved myths and stereotypes through his groundbreaking research.

    Dr. Hartlep is an assistant professor of educational foundations and is author of the books, The Model Minority Stereotype: Demystifying Success (2013, Information Age Publishing) and The Model Minority Stereotype Reader: Critical and Challenging Readings For the 21st Century (Cognella Publishing, 2013) and an author of The Assault on Communities of Color: Exploring the Realities of Race-Based Violence (Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2015)He can be followed on Twitter @nhartlep

    What is sexual assault?

    in Parents

    Today, our guest will be Ivonne Zucco, Executive Director at The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education in Stamford, CT. We will discuss sexual violence, and what we as a community can do to prevent it, where the victim can turn for help and what kind of help is available at The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education.


    Ivonne Zucco has served in a number of roles at The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education since 2009. In 2011 she became the Executive Director of the agency.

    Ms. Zucco has a particular interest in prevention and believes education is of the utmost importance. The agency spreads awareness through community involvement starting as early as the pre-school years. Ms. Zucco has also played an active role in legislation re: sexual assault.

    The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education provides free, 24-hour confidential help to men, women and children who have experienced sexual assault, serving the eight towns of lower Fairfield County, CT since 1979. They can be there from the time the victim enters the emergency room, throughout their making a police statement, and remain involved in preliminary court proceedings to the date of trial. They can also be with the victims as the healing takes place, delivering goal-oriented counseling. All of their services are available in English and Spanish.

    Surviving the Republican assault on the University of Wisconsin.

    in Education

    What if your mission was to "envision a Wisconsin where postsecondary education moves forward through an open exchange of ideas, the careful consideration of research, and a strong focus on the public good?" 


    However what if you actually tried realizing that mission during the last 4 months of Republican sponsored carpet bombing targeting the concrete ideals on which that mission rests?


    This Thursday in a special episode of BustEd Pencils, Jed and Tim talk to two of the warriors from the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE).



    Noel Tomas Radomski: Director and Assciate Researcher
    Jason Lee: Outreach Programs Manager 


    Among many topics, we will ask Noel and Jason  to provide a sense of the damage that was done and how WISCAPE will continue to fight back the attack on the essential freedom to learn and focus on the public good.

    Women Veterans Speak

    in Military

    Ruth Moore Act HR 671: The bill would allow a statement by a survivor of military sexual trauma to be considered sufficient proof that an assault occurred. The House approved the bill by voice vote Monday night. Cathy Santos contacted the office of Congresswoman Pingree and shared the following comments as being the only victim of sexual assaults to fight the government and win while service with a 15-6 Pentagon Investigation.


    I was concerned about the language here that appears to give sexual assault victims way too much power over their authority. These subordinates while serving, in my interpretation will be able to provide a statement - now, in my experience of 22 years, I know that their are a great deal of women who have been denied the opportunity to tell their stories and to get the remedy they deservied; however, I also believe that the national security is being compromised by the command's ability to lead without these restrictions placed on them by advocates in the civilians world.


    .


    How is it possible to lead a command in combat with thiese type who have no real training for war because of the restricitions placed on their leaders.


    Sexual assault victims and sexual harassment is a complicated matter and victims die, are murdered in combat. There are no protections for these victims when in combat or other remote environments and the power to use "rape" over their superiors is not to be taken lightly.


     


    Civilians can not protect victims of rape on active duty, it will get worst for them, and no civilian can protect those who are given the power to provide a "statement" that becomes the only evidence required when false accusations are made, and reputations and careers are ruined - this is a poorly worded legislation and the military is not moving forward as a result. I will be following up.

    Mama Mia NO Sharia with Vito Esposito and AL

    in Politics

    On July 16, 2015 a muslim male between the ages of 18 and 35 went on a terror spree in Chattanooga, TN killing 1 Navy Sailor and 4 US Marines.  The Islamic Terrorist was armed with a handgun and an assault rifle. 


    Former Congressman and Ret Lt. Col Alan West is reporting the United States Navy is bringing charges against Lt. Cmdr Timothy White for "illegally discharging a firearm on federal property".  Because Lt. Cmdr. White possibly fired his personal weapon at a TERRORIST who killed 5 United States Members of the Military.  The oath newbies take to protect and defend the US Constitution apparently doesn't give them their 2nd Amendment Right to Bear Arms.  The United States Navy could bring charges against the Lt. Cmdr.???  What in the Wide Wide World of Sports is going on in America? It's not enough that an Islamic Terroirst killed 5 of our US Servicemen who simply went to work on July 16th, like Gunnery Sgt Thomas Sullivan a Purple Heart Recipient who served 2 tours in Iraq, or  who served two tours one in Iraq & one in Afghanistan & an Eagle Scout or Sgt. Carson Holmquist who served two tours in Afghanistan or  Lance CPL Squire "Skip" Wells just 21 yrs old serving in Marines as his Mom, Grandmother & Grandfather all served in the armed forces or Petty Officer second class Randall Smith just 24 yrs old, enlisted and Proudly served in the US Navy! What about these fallen soldiers?
