Nina has worked with many cultures in her decades of mediation work. She will share concepts such as the different ways of looking at fairness, how cultures respond to conflict and why they have dissimilar desires as to their goals and outcomes, how people express the same emotion in a variety of ways, and why it is a common mistake to "pretend to be in someone else's shoes". This very practical 30 minutes will help you understand some of the diversity across cultures that can create problems and explore positive steps in working through the conflict.

Though America cannot claim credit for the invention of cartoons and other storytelling graphics, there can be little question that the art form today has its home solidly within the borders and culture of the United States. The editorial cartoons of English newspapers and magazines were quickly adopted by the American colonies, and thanks to Benjamin Franklin and other publishers, took on a distinctly Continental flavor. And throughout the many wars fought during the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries, cartoons grew in both sophistication and quality. But it was the development of comic books in the decade before World War II, that created a new medium of illustrated storytelling which became a distinctly American art form. Superheroes like Superman and Captain Marvel came into being, and the idea of visual storytelling became a mainstay in American media for young people. And when America went to war in 1941, comic books and their characters went to war too. In fact, comic books, their characters, and subsidiary media products (movies, etc.) provided an excellent medium to reach out to the very demographic that had to be recruited to fight World War II
To learn more about the role of comic books, cartoons, and other visual storytelling media in wartime, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on @Writestream) at 1 p.m. Eastern.'s guest this week is U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) the author Cord Scott, who has written COMICS AND CONFLICT, a history of comics and their use as wartime propaganda tools. And together they will explain the role of illustrated storytelling in politics and propaganda through the ages. Prepare for a entertaining and informative hour, talking about the nature of media messaging and power of visual storytelling.
After a week off, Fuz will be fired up. The fellas will start off talking about the Minnesota Vikings and the Adrian Peterson situation. Fuz will have a lot to say considering that the Minnesota ownership had opinions on the "Redskin" name that did go over well with Fuz. Speaking of the "Redskin" controversy, Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA) plans to introduce a bill that would end the NFL's tax-exempt status because arguing that the Washington Redskins' name promotes an ethnic slur. This will likely light a fire under Ed's butt as he has wanted that tax-exemption gone from the law books. The guys will also discuss the NFLPA filing an appeal on behalf of Ray Rice. While controversial, Ed will defend the unions decision. Given time, Fuz will go at Richard Sherman's sudden silence after the Week 2 game against the San Diego Chargers. Fuz will also not-so-humbly brag about the Washington Nationals clinching the NL East. Time permitting, the guys will discuss the FIBA World Cup which Fuz didn't care about and Ed didn't watch.

Despite the reporting over the years that spanking is for naught, many parents still seem to do it. More than half of the mothers questioned in the Pediatrics study reported spanking their kids at age 3 and at age 5. Spanking teaches hitting, it's that simple So that if you don't get your way and you're bigger than me, you can hit me to get your way. That's the lesson of spanking.
A national survey showed more than half of women and three-quarters of men in the United States believe a child sometimes needs a "good hard spanking.
The majority of parents say they spank their kids. Various factors increase the likelihood, including geographic location (children in the South are spanked the most), family income (less money means more spanking), race (African-American mothers spank their children more than other ethnic groups), and religion (parents more fundamentalist in their religious beliefs spank more than those who are less so). But all in all, it's a pretty clear picture
94% of 3- and 4-year-olds have been spanked at least once during the past year, according to one study
74% of mothers believe spanking is acceptable for kids ages 1 to 3, says another study
61% of parents condone spanking as a "regular form of punishment" for young children, according to a different study
So if hard numbers can't prove that spanking is good or bad or safe or dangerous, perhaps it's not a data issue to begin with. The question of whether spanking works, or is safe, is beside the point. Maybe the question should be "Is it really, absolutely necessary?"
JUSTICE is the constant and perpetual disposition to render every man his due. It is the proper administration of the law; the fair and equitable treatment of all individuals under the law. Justice is also a title given to certain judges, such as federal and state supreme court judges. Justice is 1) fairness, 2) moral rightness, 3) a scheme or system of law in which every person receives his/her/its due from the system, including all rights, both natural and legal. One problem is that attorneys, judges, and legislatures often get caught up more in procedure than in achieving justice for all.

At "Human Rights Demand," we believe that justice is unlikely to happen where lawmakers and justice officials have a conflict of interest. Demand the resignations of lawmakers, judges, public defenders, prosecutors, Justice Department personnel and everyone else on the public's payroll if they are also PRISON INVESTORS. That is the only way to decriminalize mental illness, eliminate mass incarceration, and restore justice to our courtrooms. Tell public employees to DIVEST OR RESIGN. We must rid our government of everyone whose stock portfolios perform best with mass incarceration, wars, and when environmental concerns are ignored. Ask your congressional representative to introduce a bill that prohibits all lawmakers and other public officials and their spouses from earning prison profits. Pass such a bill, and we will see positive Change in the justice system. Only when prison investors can no longer write laws, represent and prosecute defendants, or preside over criminal cases will any semblance of justice arrive in U.S. courts.

Gazans refuse to lease apartment buildings to Hamas. Gazans tried to get Hamas out of their residential areas out of fear of Israeli bombing [if big bad Israel kills Arabs in Gaza indicriminately, as what Pallywood propagandists say, then why is the fear of an Israeli bombing getting them to get rid of Hamas? Answer is because Israel doesn't target civilians]. Musa Abu Marzook, political leader of Hamas, says that it's worrying that Gazans won't allow themselves to be used as human shields anymore and blames it on the fictious "occupation" [never mind that Israel left Gaza in 2005]. He had the gall to say that "Palestinians" should be indebted to the "resistance fighters" i.e. the terrorists. For what? For using them as human shields and for firing rockets from their residential neighborhoods? For lynching any Arab who doesn't support their terrorist agenda by just saying that they're "colalborators" of Israel? In this episode, I will analyze the situation of Gazans demanding that Hamas leave their residential area and Mazook's full of crap responses that only far leftist morons and other Pallywood dummies could believe.
