    Tom Dowd – Displacement Day

    in Business

    Mike Brenhaug interviews Tom Dowd on eTALKS to discuss Tom's new book Displacement Day. Tom Dowd is a graduate of the University of Delaware with a Communication degree. Tom is a prize-winning speaker, award-winning author,and trainer—all spurred by his need to be more than a painfully shy and introverted individual on a rollercoaster ride of success. 


    Tom received the call nobody wanted:  “We’re downsizing.”  After unexpectedly losing his full-time job, Tom landed in a better place in just 59 days using methods from his coaching and training.  He is now a VP at one of the larger financial institutions in North America.  In 2011, he started his own side business “Thomas Dowd Professional Development & Coaching” where he continues to use the lessons learned on his climb up the corporate ladder to help people creatively find ways to differentiate themselves in the workplace and to find their own individual paths toward success. The mantra is “Transform into who you really want to be.” On what was thought to be a typical work day, author Thomas Dowd received The Call Nobody Wants:  “We’re downsizing.” In the midst of an economic downturn, the author had some choices to make in how to most effectively approach the new journey. Displacement Day is for anyone who has ever had the unfortunate—or fortunate—task of finding a job.

    Living, Caring, Learning and Sharing W/DON DURANT

    in Writing

    Your family is in danger of displacement.  Redeveliopment is designed to move you out and someone else in. Gentrification they call it when your community is changed based on the wealthy taking over and moving you out.  Rockaway Beach, NY is an example of this happening and families were broken and torn apart.  Downtown Brooklyn, is likewise a great example of raising rents beyond the ability of the established communiity to pay. Brownstones buildings moving from $200,000 to buy and increased to one million dollars...

    The Michael Cutler Hour

    in Politics

    Happy Friday!


    Let me begin by saying that in addition to being heard on BlogTalk Radio, my show is now being broadcast at 11:00 PM Eastern Time on Mondays on Red State Radio:  Here is the link to information about my show:


    Red State Talk Radio- "The Michael Cutler Hour"


    This past week President Obama gave his final State of the Union Address.  His speech writers did not provide a fact-based report on the state of our nation but rather a novel.  The facts, such as they are, paint a clear picture of an administration that has weakened our nation, hammered America's middle class and divided our nation profoundly.  Since he could not change history- he apparently decided to change the was that he wants the history books to read.  Incredibly he continues to call for "Change."  On January 6, 2016 FrontPage Magazine published my article, "Obama's Immigration Policies: Instrumentalities of Change- Displacement of American workers, suppression of wages and importation of new voters."


    This past week the Republican candidates for the Presidency participated in yet another debate.


    We will consider what we should tak away from both of these events.


    Please make certain to share the information about my show with as many folks as you can- I am attempting to create a "Bucket Brigade of Truth!"  Also make certain to get involved and hold your elected representatives accountable- Democracy is not a "Spectator Sport!"

    Mahshid Farhoudi - Identity, Displacement, Belonging

    in Art

    Mahshid Farhoudi is a figurative painter who explores issues of identity, displacement and belonging through her work.
    "My art practice draws from Iranian and occidental sources. Both figurative and architectural elements are central to my painting. Although aware of new trends in figuration, I have been appropriating symbols, icons and imagery from my culture and from my Canadian context to affirm my position to issues that I consider important. The relationship between my painted figures and their architectural contexts creates a dialogue within the work. It is this textural element that is of great interest to me. There is a direct relationship between the subject of my paintings and the techniques I employ."

    Social Injustice: Refugees Coming to America

    in News

     Every year, the president and Congress meet to set refugee quotas for specific countries. "By its very nature, it’s not a legal process; it is a political process,” says Bill Frelick, the director of the refugee program at Human Rights Watch. A vulnerable group of refugees who do not have a big profile and do not have a “special” connection to the United States, are left out. Acceptance of refugees is a popularity contest that is politically driven.


    When Saigon fell in 1975, the U.S. had no comprehensive refugee policy. When refugees from the South China Sea started arriving, the government passed the 1980 Refugee Act, giving way to a universal definition for what it meant to be a refugee, and founded the resettlement program that exists to this day. The Vietnamese exodus continued through the '90s until the U.S. formally closed its resettlement program in 1994.


    By 2007, the U.N.’s refugee agency called the Iraq exodus the "largest long-term population movement in the Middle East since the displacement of Palestinians" in 1948. But at that point, the U.S. had admitted fewer than 1,000 Iraqi refugees.


      There are currently 2.6 million Afghan refugees. But in the last 20 years, the U.S. has taken in less than 20,000.By 1994, 2.3 million Rwandan people had fled the country. The U.S. has taken in less than 1,500. The 1999-2001 civil war in Liberia resulted in 640,000 refugees. The U.S., has accepted about 33,000.


    Out of the more than two million Syrian refugees, the United States has  taken in a total of 90 since that country’s civil war began.


    Soviet Jews have been steadily streaming into the U.S. for decades surpassing their relocation to Israel. The Lautenberg Amendment, a special 1989 law, even granted refugee status to Jews from the former Soviet Union without having to prove specific persecution.
