    National Crime Victim's Rights Week & Sexual Assault Awareness

    in Radio

    This week U.S. observes National Crime Victims’ Rights week—promoting victims’ rights and honoring crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf. Millions of Americans each year are victimized by crime—acts of terrorism, violent crime, human trafficking, hate crimes, financial fraud, child abuse, cyber crime, kidnapping, bank robbery...the list goes on. And the FBI’s Office for Victim Assistance (OVA) is responsible for ensuring that victims of crimes investigated by the Bureau are afforded the opportunity to receive the services and notifications they are entitled to and the assistance they need to cope. http://www.fbi.gov/news/news_blog/2015-national-crime-victims-rights-week


    Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign


    The OVA manages the day-to-day operational aspects of our victim assistance program in each of our 56 field offices, where our victim specialists work with those who have suffered physical, emotional, and/or financial harm as a result of a federal crime. In addition, OVA is also responsible for providing training and information that equips FBI agents and other Bureau personnel to work effectively with victims


    Sexual violence including child sexual abuse crosses all ages, genders, races, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds. According to the Child Maltreatment 2013 report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Children's Bureau,  60,956 cases of child sexual abuse were reported in the US 2013—9.0 percent of the total number of reported maltreatment cases that year.

    Boston City Council, Same But Different

    in Politics Progressive

    The high drama and low comedy of Boston politics surely plays out most publicly with its mayors. Yet since 1909, much of the real action and strongest personalities have been in the City Council. That's when Boston revised from a board of aldermen and common council. They are the legislative body, who go far beyond their main duty of voting up or down the annual city budget.


    With no staggered terms, the 9 district councilors and 4 at-large ones run every two years. In theory, citizens could throw the bums out two years. 


    In my decades here,  I have seen, heard and dealt with various iterations of the Council. I have met and even confronted some real lulus and loons. Those alter kakers are gone and in recent years egos have been in check and responsibility much higher.


    We've recently lost some of the most active, smartest and overall best councilors. Some stepped down to run for mayor. Some burned out. At least one left for more money.


    In this election year, I'll set up future shows with incumbents and the few challengers. I'll talk about the shifts and possibilities.
