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 our June 2015 Recording 'Mary Magdalene' (avilable from www.hereonearth.ca) Red and The Council of Elders, channeled through deep trance medium Krow Fischer, talk about the Mystery Schools that Jesus and Mary's families were part of. We wondered about these schools. We want to know what they were teaching, what was the lineage of these schools, Greek or Druid or Egyptian origins? Or were there many of them with all the different teachings, Tibetan, Indian, Chinese as well as the western nations?
We are so curious about the spiritual education systems of times gone by. I bet you all will have tons of questions after listening to the Mary Magdalene recording that you can bring to this discussion.

I WAS AT A CHURCH MEETING MONDAY NIGHT AND WE DISCUSSED A REQUEST FROM AN ORGANIZATION FOR MONEY FOR SCHOOL SUPPLIES IN AREA PUBLIC SCHOOLS. AND I THOUGHT TO MYSELF: WHERE DOES ALL THE TAX MONEY GO TO SUPPORT THEM? I MEAN, REALLY, MY PROPERTY TAXES GO UP FOR SCHOOLS EVERY YEAR AND MORE AND MORE KIDS ARE BEING PULLED OUT OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS EVERY YEAR, SO WHAT IS GOING ON?
NOW LET MY MAKE THIS CLEAR. I AM A PRODUCT OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND I KNOW THAT A FREE SOCIETY NEEDS THEM TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL KIDS GET AN EDUCATION, BUT WHY ARE THEY FAILING YET COSTING MORE AND MORE? AND I KNOW THAT IT'S NOT THE TEACHERS. OH, SURE, THERE ARE A FEW BAD APPLIES IN ANY PROFESSION, BUT BY AND LARGE THEY WORK HARD, SPEND MONEY OUT OF THEIR OWN POCKETS TO HELP NEEDY STUDENTS, AND PICK UP MORE AND MORE EXTRA DUTIES WHILE THE ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF GROWS AND GROWS EACH YEAR.
WE'LL DISCUSS THIS AT 9 TUESDAY NIGHT. I'LL GIVE YOU MY TWO CENTS WORTH AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL GET US ALL THINKING ABOUT WHAT IS SO DREADFULLY WRONG TODAY. THIS WILL PROBABLY BE A GOOD LEAD IN TO THURSDAY NIGHT'S COMMON CORE DISCUSSION. SEE YOU THEN.
Nakonde is one of Zambia's major border post towns in the Northern provvince (second to Chirundu on the Zambia/Zimbabwe border) in terms of being busy) with high traffic of business taking place. It lies on the border with Tanzania. It is about 1000 km north of Lusaka the capital city. At least twenty bus coaches travel from Lusaka and the Copperbelt every day to Nakonde taking traders who go to buy various items from clothes, building materials to ordering cars from Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. Travellers can also travel by rail using the Tazara trains from Kapiri Mposhi in Central Zambia. The trains go right up to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. Nakonde also has tourist attractions with the legendary Ngoni King Zwangedaba buried 35 km away from the town Centre. The major languages spoken in Nakonde are Chinamwanga and Chibemba. Kiswahili is also spoken by the locals due to interaction with neighbouring Tanzania. Nakonde is a growing town with a lot of potential. New infrastructure such as Government offices have been built in recent years as well as new guest houses and lodges and eating places to cater for the many travellers into the town. Wiki

Kids have mental health needs and many get the help they need from mental health professionals in schools. We start a series of conversations with two leading psychologists from the National Association of School Psychologists - Dr. Eric Rossen, Director of Professional Development and Standards, and Dr. Kelly Vaillancourt Strobach, Director of Government Relations on mental health and students. Today we explore how schools got into the business of mental health, and how the provision of services has changed over the years. http://www.nasponline.org/
