Children involved in juvenile court face collateral consequences from their delinquency adjudications which can prevent barriers to their future success and can cause harm to their well-being. Some of these stem from system exposure and others extend beyond the time spent under court supervision but are related to their prior court involvement and adjudication. For example, after successfully completing their dispositions, many youth face significant hardships enrolling back in school, finding employment, or accessing ongoing treatment or health care. This episode of Spotlight on Youth focuses on the intersection of collateral consequences for youth who are court involved. Guests join this episode to discuss what is being done on both policy and practice levels to reduce and eliminate the problem. Guests
Elissa Johnson, Staff Attorney, Southern Poverty Law Center
Dr. Ashley Nellis, Senior Research Analyst, The Sentencing Project

The Chicago Bears released newly signed defensive end Ray McDonald on Monday after the troubled player was arrested again following suspicion of domestic violence and child endangerment.

In the month of May we have concentrated on the theme grieving. We have focused on grieving from a mother’s perspective and family dynamics. This week however, on Talk back Tuesday we will be focusing on grieving from a male and father’s standpoint.
Most male are condition to be the “macho” type. Meaning they are raised and taught not to associate typical grief symptoms such as sadness, crying, depressed mood, and a sense of hopelessness. These characteristic are usually used to define female emotion during the grieving process.
Males tend to bottle up their emotions trying to be strong for their family.
Studies shows that after a loss men experience greater changes in mood than women and experience more consequences on their physical health.
Tune in to Talk Back Tuesday as we continue grieving from a man’s point of view.
ALL choices have consequences. Sometimes they're good, and sometimes they're...not so good. But every choice has a consequence. It seems like, in this day and age, that the more choices we have, the less we expect the consequences. To contrast this...taking responsibility for your choices is a sign of maturity, and it's extremely rare today. So, what does the Bible say about choices and consequences? Quite a bit. The Bible is full of examples of people who made foolish choices and suffered the consequences, and also people who made choices that resulted in very good consequences. Listen this week as Dr Pauline and Catherine talk about how choices and consequences influence a Dunamas life.
As always, we welcome your comments and questions through Facebook (Dunamas Center Ministries), and Twitter (@YourDunamasLife).
Watch for Dr Pauline's new book, "Won't Somebody Please Hear Me? Healing from Birth Traumatomology Syndrome"...Coming soon!

You have probably heard of "haters" or "trolls" or "cyber-bullies." Where did they come from? Why do they attack? Has the digital world of social media and mobile created a new underground culture of bad behaviour? Join Deb and Tom as they converse with Peggy Parks, a leading civility expert form the Parks Image Group, Inc. (www.theparksimagegroup.com) about the lack of civil behaviour online and what we can do to make the Internet a safer place to express ourselves and disagree in a respectful manner with those who we do not share the same perspective. Respecting boundaries, taking responsibility for our own online comments and conduct, and setting a good example for others are some of the topics we will hit on during the interview.
About Peggy: Peggy Parks has the opportunity to see people in business settings as well as social ones. A key element in her observations is noticing how people treat each other.

As the Southeast’s leading Civility Expert, Peggy views good manners, the ability to listen to learn and to appreciate other viewpoints as key elements for civility. And a person who practices civility actually polishes their personal image.

Pills & Potions: Love Overdosing-Tina and Shay try to make the best of decisions, but lies and deceit are difficult to live with. They never knew that being in love could come with such consequences.
How long does Shay have to wait for Ethan to become the man she wants? The wait seems to be coming to an end since she has found interest in another man. Yet, when life seems to take her on a whirlwind of chaos, she is thrust into making a life or death decision. What choices will she make in life and love?
Tina is an unhappily married woman. Aaron is not affectionate and her loneliness is evident. Tension arises as confusion sets in. Is she lonely enough to pursue a deeper relationship with another man?
Will the decisions made be worth it? Or, will the two women lose all sanity in trying to come to terms with the cards that life has dealt them?
In my youth, my father was emotionally, verbally, and financially abusive to me. That abuse left a hole in my soul, one I've been committed to healing for decades.
I know men and women whose mothers died, left, or ignored them in their youth.
Abuse and absence of the parent leaves us feeling ABANDONED.
Then as adults, if we don't heal those wounds, we then abandon ourselves.
Self-Abandonment, that's our topic for this week's show. We will explore how and why we abandon ourselves, and what are the consequences. More importantly, how do we now show up for ourselves.
I'll be drawing from the wisdom of Dr. Margaret Paul, the author of Inner Bonding: Becoming a Loving Adult to Your Inner Child, and what I've learned about re-parenting the self on my journey to healing. I hope you'll join me on She Struts Radio, 6:30pm ET, as we explore ways to show up for self. To join the conversation, call 718.766.4468.

It seems like another skeleton falls out of the United States’ closet every day. Whistleblowers are coming out of the woodwork, and the government is struggling to keep the scandals contained
In 1996, Gary Webb, a writer for the San Jose Mercury News, published a series of articles known as “Dark Alliance.” The articles detailed how the CIA turned a blind eye as Nicaraguan drug traffickers sold and distributed crack cocaine in Los Angeles throughout the 1980s. It also described how the Reagan administration protected drug dealers from prosecution.
US Army Private Bradley Manning is responsible for what some have called the biggest leak of secret military data ever. His actions also helped put WikiLeaks on the map, as he provided the organization with hundreds of thousands of classified documents.
Among the things Manning revealed were:
• A secret video, nicknamed “collateral murder” that showed US air crew laughing after killing dozens of people (including reporters and civilians) in an air strike.
• Detailed records of the civilian death toll in Iraq (even though the military repeatedly said there was no record). Out of 109,000 deaths logged in a six year period, 66,081 were unarmed civilians.
• US Soldiers committed horrific acts of torture on Iraqi prisoners, and despite hundreds of filed complaints, authorities never investigated.
• US defense contractor DynCorp was involved in child trafficking.
Currently Manning is being imprisoned by the military and is facing 21 charges, including “aiding the enemy,” which comes with a life sentence. Yes . . . Manning is in jail for exposing the US government paying a company that sold child slaves.
