Under Obama, rural poverty has slipped off the national agenda as presidential candidates, pundits, and the press focus on the needs of big cities – the very places making the countryside poor.
The fate of upstate New York is a small scene in a larger story enveloping rural areas across the United States. As the balance of population shifts to cities, urban elites are increasingly favoring laws and regulations that benefit urban voters over rural ones. The result is the "Detroit-ification" of sparsely populated areas so that the countryside increasingly resembles the inner city. This trend fuels the intense populism and angry politics that has shattered the post-WWII consensus and divided the nation.

On this week's edition of NORTH FLORIDA WRITER TALKS, host James Dick, a regular contributor to the Conservative Report and blogger through his own web site, North Florida Writer, northfloridawriter.com will lead a discussion of the plight of small rural landowners facing the pressure of development in rural North Florida. The show should be of benefit to all who love the rural lifestyle as the American landscape is under threat of urbanization from sea to shining sea. James will be joined by two landowners in the middle of the struggle for retention of their lifestyle, one a retired NCIS agent and the other a housewife, turned activist, when she realized after she had raised her family that the environment she loved and in which she had lived her entire life was collapsing around her, Topics will include:

ACTION STEPS WHICH CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
THE PROPER BALANCE BETWEEN URBAN AND RURAL
Whether you are Conservative, Liberal or somewhere in between, if you live in, or want to maintain a reasonable rural presence in America, this show has something for you. After all, do we really need another strip mall or postage stamp lot development at every bend on the country road?

Rapid expansion in adoptions and use of mobile devices in schools has the potential to impact almost every aspect of education. A new report, "Mobile Technology for K-12 Education," sponsored by mobile learning company, Amplify, and conducted by education market research experts at IESD, reveals details about the current status of mobile technology in our schools. The question is, what are publishers and developers who serve the school market doing in terms of their product marketing plans and their sales approaches as we move away from the a textbook centric K-12 sales environment to an environment where smartphones, tablets, and other mobile computing devices are the primary delivery envelope? Host Glen McCandless asks K-12 market researcher, Jay Sivin-Kachala, of IESD, to provide his perspective.

Bloods, Crips, Latin Kings and a host of other gangs plague our inner cities but is this the result of a society that has failed the children of this generation? When we look at the failure of the present school system that is validated by the number of failing schools especially in the inner city there is without question a "State of Emergency" in the public school system where ever you reside. Lets explore some answers to the problem and our responsibility to employ them.
This is Part 2 of the discussion started Sunday on NORTH FLORIDA WRITER TALKS concerning the Plight of Small Rural Landowners. Water is becoming an issue in Florida and small rural landowners are certainly holding "the short end of the stick". Karen Chadwick joins host James Dick of northfloridawriter.com and a major contributor to the Conservative Report to discuss this problem that impacts not only Florida but small landowners across the nation.
Karen brings extensive practical knowledge of Florida's water network gained from her experience as a sculptor who has designed models of rivers and other aquifer related water sources that are now displaying stress from lack of sufficient recharge and introduction of pollutants. Preparing for her work assignments has required her to interface with subject matter experts with both government and private experience as well as conduct extensive independent research to master each task undertaken. The show is being broadcast Saturday since Sunday, Easter, will be spent honoring The One who gave us the ultimate gift.
We will discuss the interrelationship of water and development, the state of the water sources today and where they are headed in the future. If you are concerned about the quality and quantity of your water supply, as you should be, the discussion is designed to make you think about what life will be like if we don't pay attention to this life giving resource. If not, the future could be very bleak indeed.
