World economies show signs of running out of steam, China's increasingly testy about enforcing new territorial claims in the South Chinia Sea, ISIS keeps gobbling up more territory in the Middle East, with Iraq taking the brunt of it recent weeks...
But the Obama administration?
It seems more interested in pursuing what it alleges is corruption in world soccer.
No, there's been nothing to, by itself, give us a huge whack on the head this week, but when you connect the dots, you should see things continue to sprial in an evermore downward direction.

On Monday, June 22nd, the Mobile Technology Association of Michigan will launch the Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council with a mission ‘to support women through access to educational forums, networking, mentoring, technical training, resources, scholarships, and more, with a primary focus on professional women currently working with, or interested in working with, these technologies in any industry.
With a lack of mobile/wireless tech-trained talent available, and universities unable to turn out trained graduates fast enough to meet the demands of Michigan-based firms and branches of national and international firms located here, identifying ways to engage more women in the space as a potential solution to this staffing shortage is an area of focus by a wide variety of regional employer groups, educational institutions, economic development organizations, and non-profits. The Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council will be the resource to pull together the various stakeholders and resources focused on this issue to connect talent, interest and opportunity.
The launch of the Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council will feature an incredible panel of women leaders in the mobile/wireless tech space from a cross-section of industries to address this topic, as well as discuss their own journey's to achieving success in this field. Join host Melissa Birnie and guest, Linda Daichendt, MTAM Exeutive Director, to learn more about the Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council, what you can expect to learn at the launch event, and what this Council expects to do for women in Michigan to enable them to utilize these technologies for career/business growth.

On "It's My House" we shall continue our talks on Gentrification Literacy. We shall take another inside look at Gentricationomics, which are the economic factors that lead to a community becoming gentrified.
Communities and households that are "self governing" do not get gentrified...........however households and communities that rely on the government for "security" usually end up with "government INSECURITY".
Please feel free to call in and offer your questions or comments during our LIVE STREAM podcast.

This Monday is a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio, and we're going to the movies again. Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron has already proven itself to be one of the biggest films of the year. The film has already earned $1.2 billion globally. But popularity doesn't necessarily mean the film has been universally praised. The movie has come under fire for its portrayal of women, the absence of women in tie-in products, and for other issues with the story itself. Joining us for the conversation is Sarah Jaffe.
Sarah Jaffe is a reporting fellow at the Nation Institute and a giant nerd who once upon a time wrote about comics more than she wrote about politics, believe it or not, and she has lots of feelings about superhero movies AND their politics. Follow her on Twitter https://twitter.com/sarahljaffe
So listen in, and join us in the conversation. Call in with your thoughts, or Tweet them to us @graphicpolicy.
Open Conversation, and intense talk let your views be know 347-945-5229
This episode of Pneumatikos will explore some of the powerful spiritual insights of the prophet Amos. Amos was called of Yehweh to speak redemptive havoc in a smooth season. The northern kingdom was at the height of its economic and military prowess. It also played creative mischief with the lives of the helpless poor while engaged in soul- rotting idolatry. Amos was recruited by Yahweh to address without apology or compromise the bewildering lies of the people. Amos was told to leave the northern kingdom or be expelled by force. Amos, however, remained constant in his redemptive focus.
Guest: Barry Jacobsen, military historian and blogger........Leslie Eastman, political activist and contributor to Legal Insurrection.......we will discuss the fall of Ramadi in Iraq.....ISIS and Iran...."no fly zones" in South China Sea......Russia and Ukraine....the drought in California and its political and economic impact.............

Elder financial abuse is being called the fastest growing area of crime in America. And it may be happening in your family, if you aren't paying attention to a caregiver -- or a relative -- who, under the guise of being helpful, is syphoning off an elderly person's life savings.
This issue no doubt affects seniors across all socio-economic groups, cultures and races. It is a major problem that is expected to grow dramatically with the aging of our population. We are delighted and honored to be joined by Carolyn Rosenblatt, an expert on the topic, to help us protect our parents or loved ones as well as equip us with tools to spot the red flags that exploitation is happening.
Stay tuned for fresh and insightful ideas on what it means to age with dignity and live your best life as an elder or caregiver today. Life is a Sacred Journey airs Thursdays at 5pm PDT.
