The unemployment rate continues to improve, but there are still millions out of work, and there are over 3 million open jobs where employers are searching for workers with the right skills to fill them. Bridging this gap will require better attention to the “skills match”, increasing credentialing and certifications for adult learners, and giving K-12 students the tools needed to develop life-long learning habits and career knowledge. Lee Ramsayer is an Executive Vice President with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and a champion of work readiness and skills development. Join Ron Painter and Mr. Ramsayer on Wednesday, May 14 at 1:00 PM EDT for a lively conversation on new technologies, where Workforce Investment Boards (WIBs) should focus their credentialing efforts, and how to take work readiness to the next level.

Finding out who you are by knowing your strengths and weaknesses

The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.
2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

Deploying communicates to your loved ones the importance of your work. How do you communicate how important they are in the midst of that separation?
How do we tell the kids?

On Wednesday, the Grand Jury in Staten Island, NY, ruled not to indict the NYC policeman, involved in the death of Eric Garner, presumably by a chokehold.
Right after the grand jury decision for Ferguson Officer Wilson, the decision came as a shock, as this scenario wa captured live on film.
As expected, the reaction was swift and scathing, many seeing this as another indication on how black males aer targeted and harassed by law enforcement and legal system.
Comments came from the president of the U.S. and the Mayor of New York, raising concerns of breaches and distrust between the black community and law enforcement.
The comments of Charles Barkley, regarding the riots in Ferguson, should be considered in overviewing black community issues.
Of course, there are those who argue that the results would be different, had Michael Brown or Eric Garner been white.
But the question that we need to tackle, especially black men, what posthumous lessons have Michael Brown and Eric Garner taught us?
Are black men too sensitive or confrontative with police, especially if they’re white?
Can the same be said about white police officers when dealing with black men?
What do we teach or men-children and men, about personal security in general?
Have we become too lax and complacent?
Some say that this is a verification of the War on Black Men – Maybe yes, maybe no, but either way, it’s high time that we NOT CONTINUE TO ASSIST IN WAGING IT
