If you could fix the economy ….. what would you do….

 

Retirement

This is from an article in the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper on Sunday.

The Business Section asked readers for ideas on "How Would You Fix theEconomy?"

   I think this guy nailed it!

Dear Mr. President:
Please find below my suggestion for fixing America ‘s economy.
Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander
the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.
You can call  it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:
There are about 40 million people over 50  in the work force.
Pay them $1 million apiece severance for early  retirement with the following stipulations:
1) They MUST retire.
Forty million job openings – Unemployment fixed.
2) They MUST buy a new  American CAR. Forty million cars ordered – Auto Industry fixed.
3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage – Housing Crisis fixed.
  It can’t get any easier than that! If more money is needed, have all  members of Congress and their constituents pay their taxes…
you think  this would work, please forward to everyone you know.

Dear Friends of MV,
 
Moving Forward – With Your Incredible Help!
 
And believe me, We need and deeply appreciate YOUR HELP!
 
Here in the MV office we’ve been going non-stop since our first
fund raising appeal last October, aiming to place MV in a
position of strength.  But (surprise!) the economy tanked…and
we find ourselves, once again, running on empty.
 
Many of you understand what it’s like to be financially stressed.
But MV was built on the belief that hope and struggle inspires
us to be better, work harder, and become more effective as
individuals and as a community.
 
We want all MV readers, regardless of your situation, to share
in our growth and recovery.  If you can help with money, bring
it on!  We need it!   But if you would like to help in a different
way- offering MV and its readers your time, ideas, and talents
– we feel honored that you find MV a suitable outlet for your
abilities.
 
As you’ll see from our list of current actions and future plans,
we put your financial and volunteer assistance to immediate use.
Our overall goal is to pursue growth while keeping the quality
level of the newsletter equal-to or above our past 20 years of
success.  Let us know whether you think we’re doing our job,
and what we can do to improve our service to you!
 
****************************************************
*****************************************************
 
Current Needs:  Most critical –PRINTING costs:
 
We’ve paid for the February print run, thanks to many new
subscriptions and help from Mark & Pegge Singer, Karen Y.,
Taffy G., Eve B., Laura &  Bill, Paula Ulrich, Beverly L,
Valeda M.,  Roberta D., Patrick McAteer SJ,
Kathleen Rapp LCSW, Ruth Blizard PhD, Sheryl T.,
Beverly S., Jeane A., and Sandi Fox. 
 
Freda T., Linda S., Wendy K, and Larry & Crystal M.D.
have assisted MV greatly via regularly scheduled payments.
This "regular income" helps MV and is perhaps easier
on the budget for the contributor that a big lump-sum donation. 
 
So please accept MV’s grateful thanks to ALL of you,
who’ve helped us out of the February Hole.  Now, of course,
we must contend with the APRIL Hole…Once again,
we need nearly $2,000 to cover printing and mailing
costs for April.  Our goal is to get back on track,
pay-as-we-go, as soon as possible.  Personally, I can’t wait!
We will be able to do so much more for our readers when MV’s
internal economy improves!
 
Critical Need #2 – D&O Insurance
 
Recently we received a quote for the Directors & Officers
Liability Insurance that is essential to attract top quality
professionals for our Board.  The quote is reasonable for
this sort of thing- slightly under $1050.  If someone knows
of a family foundation or other source that might donate
to fulfill this specific need, I’d be ecstatic.
 
Once we’ve signed onto this policy, we can recruit a clinician
or two for the Board and dive into grant-writing and other
fundraising solicitations with a credible slate of board members.
 
Pitching in for MV!  Our Fabulous Volunteers! 
So many people help make MV more viable these days. 
Over the coming months, you will notice the improvements
and service expansions they bring.  Among this list (& if I
omit your name, send me a note and I’ll be triple-sure to
include it next time around):  Paul T, Michael F. and
Mike Skinner have offered a number of valuable suggestions
to help grow MV’s services and upgrade content delivery. 
 
Book Reviews on the Site!
 
Paul T’s idea of posting reader-prepared book reviews on the
website is a perfect example.  Initially, these reviews
(you can write one!) will appear under the Other Books link,
though that may change when we finally get to our web redesign.
  In conjunction with this effort, Roberta D.  finished the
important task of researching ISBNs for the existing book
reviews in that location.  I still have work to do on this,
but in the end we hope to connect these reviews with a
bookseller like Amazon, so MV can earn a few pennies
via click-through.  Send your book reviews to me at
LynnW@manyvoicespress.com
 
MORE Web Activity!
 
In addition to Paul, others involved in revamping our online
presence include Lady Jz (Jacki S.), Kelly E., Sonya M, and
MV’s top-notch IT specialist-volunteer, Steve Lyle.  Ray M
is using the web to research clinic and mental health o
rganization addresses.  We want every clinic in the country
to know that MV exist and is ready to help trauma survivors
find peace of mind.  That’s a big reason we want to start a
suitable e-newsletter…another task that we’re working on.
Debbie E., BD and Michael F. have helped us keep MV’s
website "fresh" by checking the entries under our Sharing link,
and adding their own replies.  This is a very important task
that almost anyone with a computer can help with!
 
Just click the Sharing Link at www.manyvoicespress.org 
Reply to any question where you have an opinion. 
Even the oldest questions are updated, so there is plenty to r
ead through.
We want to keep adding opinions, because new visitors
who encounter MV for the first time are very interested
in the questions.  The more answers, the better!  Send yours soon!
 
MV is TWITTERING, too!
 
Follow us on Twitter at manvoicesnews. 
I like the idea of Twitter: it seems like a simple way to keep
people aware of what’s happening at MV.  I’m trying to place
the code for a Twitter box on the index page, so everyone who
visits can see what’s happening.  I tried to do it myself,
but I’m not that skilled with Dreamweaver, and my efforts
made the index page look clunky.  I want the index page
to look GOOD.  Any Volunteers?
 
Help Spread the Word about MV
 
MV wants to educate the public about the after math of trauma.
  We are looking for outgoing and healthy volunteers to perform
this important function in their city or region.  Volunteers Jenn J.
  and Mike Skinner have led the way.  Both have passed out MV
literature to their constituents, made contacts, and helped MV
considerably by their efforts.  Jenn has contacted numerous
therapists and groups in her area.  She is a fountain of creativity,
constantly coming up with valuable ideas for future revenue streams.
  MV would love to have more helpers like this.
If you would like to speak about trauma recovery and MV,
or need literature to pass along to others, let me know. 
We’ll find a way to make it happen. 
 
ART EVENT
Our wonderful Board Members- Glenda, Barbara, Bill, and Priscilla-
Just finished taking time out of their own busy schedules to
complete another board meeting.  Among other topics, we discussed
staging an art gallery showing and fundraising auction here in Cincinnati.
  If you are an artist who would like to contribute a piece of your
work toward an MV fundraiser, let me know.  We will need photos first
(email is ok) and dimensions of the work, to make preliminary selections.
  Since many of you are in as much financial stress as MV is, we are open
to splitting the revenues with the artist, up to and including 50% of the
auction sales price (less shipping).  The artist may wish to give us a
minimum price.  If bidding doesn’t surpass the artists’ minimum,
the artwork will be returned to the artist at MV’s expense. 
MV will pay shipping charges for all individually-solicited artworks.
 
Thanks to Cincinnati-area Volunteers
 
In addition to the hours and IT expertise contributions made
by our computer wonder-man Steve Lyle, MV appreciates the
dozens of hours donated to office work, by Adrienne Jackson,
Kwaeli Robinson, Corey Corsen and Jonada Jacobsen in recent weeks.
  I am a bit (more than a bit) disorganized, but these wonderful
women are helping me to shape up and put things back where they belong!
Thanks so much to all of you!  I’m hoping to see more local
volunteers after the tax season ends (Heather? are you listening?)
 
********************************************************
*********************************************************
 
Well, once again I’ve run out of room.  But I hope you’ll
read through this carefully, and consider one or more
ways to help MV.  WE NEED YOU…we want to serve
you and all the others who have struggle so long. 
There is a better life for us…
but we have to work to bring it into reality. 
Than you for sharing your journey and progress with us a MV
 
Sincerely, 
 
 
 
Lynn W.,  Executive Director
 
 
from Lady Jz Talk Zone to any one out there who has struggled
in their lives and would love to be able to share their journey with
others and help.  Stop by and talk with me.  LadyJ

Here’s a great surprise and start for my new chapter.  Since I’ve gotten here, just a few weeks now, the family has seen the tornadoes which luckily went around where we are just west of Houston and east of the big ones.  Plenty of rain just far out of the way of flood areas.  And now cases of this coming up in the Houston area and deaths reported because people just thought it was a freak cold.  Go figure!  So I’ll just stay away from the stores for a week or so.  That’s about the only place I’d come in contact with anyone who would be working in the Houston area.  Jacki

Mexico Swine Flu Epidemic Worries World

Swine Flu Deaths in Healthy Young People Raise Fears of Pandemic

By Daniel J. DeNoon
WebMD Health News

Reviewed by Louise Chang, MD

April 24, 2009 — Mexico’s deadly swine flu outbreak is caused by the same virus identified in the U.S., says CDC Acting Director Richard Besser, MD.

The CDC is analyzing 14 virus samples sent from Mexico. Seven of them, the CDC learned today, are very similar to the unusual swine flu strain isolated from U.S. patients.

Swine Flu Outbreak:
Get the Facts

Get the latest swine flu information from the WebMD and the CDC, plus other facts you need to know.

"People are concerned about this situation," Besser said at a news conference. "We are worried as well. Our concern has grown since yesterday."

Sixty people in Mexico have died of the flu — and so far, 16 of the deaths are confirmed cases of swine flu, news sources quote Mexican officials as saying.

World Health Organization spokesman Gregory Hartl told the Canadian news agency CBC that there have been some 800 cases in Mexico City, where schools are closed due to the outbreak.

Alarmingly, the flu outbreak in Mexico is striking healthy young people — a pattern that would be expected if a flu virus new to humans emerged.

"Because these cases are not happening in the very old or the very young, which happens with seasonal influenza, this is an unusual event and a cause for heightened concern," Hartl said in a CBC interview.

That’s not the only eyebrow-raising feature of the swine flu outbreaks. Infections have occurred in Mexico, California, and Texas — where warm weather should mean the end of the normal flu season, says William Schaffner, MD, president-elect of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases and chair of preventive medicine and infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University.

"Will we see this flu virus transmitted in the warm months? That would give us heartburn," Schaffner tells WebMD. "And is this a harbinger of things to come during our next flu season?"

Another disconcerting feature of the outbreak is that it’s probably too late to contain it to limited geographical areas.

"We are seeing cases in Texas and California with no connection between them. This makes us think there has been transmission from person to person through many cycles," Besser said. "For containment we need limitation to a confined geographical area, and we have not seen that here."

The World Health Organization is convening an expert panel to determine whether to raise its pandemic flu alert level. Because of bird flu, we’re at level 3. If the panel finds evidence of "increased human-to-human transmission" it goes to level 4. If there’s evidence of "significant human-to-human transmission," it goes to level 5.

A pandemic will be declared only if there is "efficient and sustained human-to-human transmission" of a new flu virus. That clearly has not happened yet.

"Whether or not this [swine flu] strain causes a widespread pandemic will depend on its transmissibility among humans. That has not yet been fully elucidated, but should be shortly," Pascal James Imperato, MD, MPH, professor and dean of public health at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn, N.Y., tells WebMD.

Should there be a pandemic — something that is far from certain — the CDC has already begun work on a vaccine. Would it be ready by next flu season?

"It would be an Olympic sprint — a mammoth feat — to produce a flu vaccine by October," Schaffner says.

Swine Flu Deaths in Healthy Young People Raise Fears of Pandemic

(continued)

What You Should Do Now

Infectious disease experts agree with the CDC that now is a good time to think about what you’d do if there were a widespread flu outbreak.

Here’s what you can do right now: Wash your hands often and well.

The CDC has not yet warned travelers to avoid the San Diego or San Antonio areas, and it is not restricting travel to or from Mexico. However, travelers to or from those areas should be sure to use all normal precautions to avoid catching or spreading a cold or flu.

People who live in or visit those areas and who get flu-like symptoms should see a doctor to get tested for the swine flu virus.

Just about the time you think it might be safe and the internet is slowly getting calm…I read something like this.  Did anyone read about Oracle acquiring the “SUN”….READ ON,  Lady J talks

Whitmore writes:

Both Cisco and Oracle have recently entered the server market. As a result, we expect competition to intensify significantly over the next few quarters. This is most negative for HP, Dell and to a lesser extent, IBM. While the market is not terribly attractive from a growth and margin perspective, it is still strategic to Cisco’s and Oracle’s broader datacenter opportunities.

In other words, servers will just be tacked on to other stuff. Whitmore also adds that Sun’s server business may require “incremental investment, or face more share loss.” Look for Oracle to do a little pruning before it blows any dough on Sun’s hardware business.

Other threads: Perhaps Oracle’s purchase of Sun is just a step on the way to offering services like IBM.

New Article on False Reporting Released

The National Center for the
Prosecution of Violence
Against Women has recently published an article addressing false reporting.

Currently law enforcement and criminal prosecution in the U.S. is very low on sexual violence due to the strong belief that victims are falsley reporting. Up-to-date research indicates that the

rate of false reporting for sexual assault is in the range of 2-8%. Using these facts this article goes on to suggest improvements to prosecution and how to handle the few incidents of false reports.
