  • Remembrance this Memorial Day

    20 May 2015 | 5:12 am
    Barbeques, parades, festivities and no work or school. Memorial Day is just around the corner, but let's not forget the reason for the holiday: to remember those who have fallen in war. Memorial Day officially became a federal holiday in 1971. Following the Civil War, Americans began decorating the graves of fallen soldiers and holding springtime tributes. Waterloo, New York became the official birthplace of the holiday in 1966. The town was chosen because it hosted an annual, community-wide event, during which businesses closed and residents decorated with flowers and flags. For many years,…
  • Becoming Resilient: Scanning the Environment

    19 May 2015 | 5:53 pm
    This blog originally posted on the Community & Regional Resilience Institute  One of my favorites among the myriad definitions of resilience is a generalization of ones developed by Brown, and by Adger: Resilience is positive adaptation to perceived change. I like this definition because its few words hint at so much more – just as a shell held to our ear echoes the vast ocean from which it came. This simple definition implies change – or what else is adaptation? While the definition indicates that the adaptation is an improvement, it does not state an endpoint; thus, resilience…
  • Medical Marijuana – and Schools

    18 May 2015 | 8:02 pm
    The Colorado Legislature is set to debate a bill that would authorize the use of medical marijuana in elementary and high schools in the state. While far from certain that the bill will pass or that other states will follow suit, it is vitally important that schools and school districts consider the implications of such a law. The logic behind the Colorado bill is that school children are currently allowed to take medications at school – under a specific set of rules. The medicines must be prescribed and they cannot be self-administered. The student must take the medications under the…

  • Judicial Conference: To Whom it May Concern

    Patricia Barnes
    22 May 2015 | 12:15 pm
    The evidence has been building for years that federal courts are hostile to discrimination plaintiffs, and that corporate plaintiffs fare much better than individual plaintiffs. The U.S. Courts were created under Article III of the Constitution to administer justice fairly and impartially.  So  it doesn’t seem right that federal judges appear to be biased, either consciously or […]

    New evidence shows that a 2009 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court that allows judges to dismiss cases based on their “common sense” has led to a sharp increase in the dismissal lawsuits filed by individuals  but virtually no change in the dismissal rate of lawsuits filed by corporations. The New York Times this week reported the […]
