The National Cathedral did a marvelous job with the webcast.The service was awesome in its music, its prayers, and the knock-yer-socks-off sermon.I know the National Cathedral is a “house of prayer for all people,” but I felt very proud — as an Episcopalian — to be part of the “tribe” that hosted this glorious service.Hats off to all those who had a part in planning this service, its prayers, and its music.

The 106-year-old Episcopal cathedral has long hosted presidential inaugural services, this one following Monday’s 57th Presidential Inauguration. AP Photo/Carolyn KasterEditors note: Story updated with links to on-demand video and photo gallery.[Episcopal News Service] As is traditional for such events, the inauguration of President Barack Obama was surrounded by prayer, and Episcopal churches and Episcopalians played large roles in spiritually supporting the beginning of the president’s second term.The 57th Presidential Inaugural Prayer Service, held Jan. 22 at Washington National Cathedral, was the official finale to the inauguration events.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori offered a prayer for the nation during the service.“Almighty God, you have given us this good land as our heritage. Make us always remember your generosity and constantly do your will,” Jefferts Schori prayed towards the end of the service. “Bless our land with honest industry and an honorable way of life. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Make us who come from many nations with many different languages a united people.“Defend our liberties and give those whom we have entrusted with the authority of government the spirit of wisdom, that there might be justice and peace in our land. When times are prosperous, let our hearts be thankful, and in troubled times, do not let our trust in you fail. In your holy Name we pray.”The Rev. Adam Hamilton, senior pastor at United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas, was the preacher.“We Americans say it seldom – but we should say it far more often: Thank you, for giving yourselves, for sacrificing, for living in glass houses, for accepting the constant barrage of criticism with very little praise, for being willing to risk everything in order to serve this country. Thank you. Thank you,” Hamilton said at the beginning of his nearly 17-minute sermon, addressing Obama and Biden and eliciting applause.Hamilton said that too many Americans feel that United States is “like a house divided that cannot stand,” echoing the words of Abraham Lincoln.He reminded the congregation about the Israelites wandering in the wilderness and complaining about Moses’ leadership. Hamilton also invoked Proverbs’ warning that “without a vision the people perish.”They don’t literally perish, Hamilton acknowledged, they just keep bickering and can’t get anything done.Hamilton’s sermon pled the case for the country’s leaders and all its citizens to turn to God in order to find a way out of partisan bickering. “The people in this city and in this room” are the ones who can lead that journey, he said.“God has given you a unique gift, Mr. President,” he said. “Unlike any other president we’ve ever had, you have the ability to cast a vision and inspire people. You should’ve been a preacher.”“God actually has you exactly where he wants you,” Hamilton added, to applause and laughter.In order for American to have a future, its leaders and its citizens need a deep and abiding faith in God, Hamilton said, adding that faith is what sustains the hard work of unifying a country and serving those who need assistance.“Leads us to be a compassionate people,” Hamilton implored Obama, urging him to cast a strong vision, be persistent in seeing it realized and that when he tires in his work to “wait upon the Lord, he will renew your strength.”The interfaith service was attended by approximately 2,200 invited guests and included 23 representatives of several Christian denominations, as well as of Islam, Judaism and Sikhism.The Very Rev. Gary Hall, dean of the cathedral, joined Diocese of Washington Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde in welcoming the congregation, in English and Spanish, to “your house.”Filled with words and music from traditional Episcopal Church liturgies, the service also included the Sh’ma Yisrael by Cantor Mikhail Manevich of Washington Hebrew Congregation before prayers for those who govern, the Islamic Adhaan by Dr. Abdullah M. Khouj, president and imam of the Islamic Center in Washington, D.C., before prayers for those who serve and  Cathedral Cantor Allison Mondel singing an invitation to prayer by Hildegard of Bingen before the prayers for the people.The readings included Isaiah 55:6–11, II Corinthians 4:6–10 and Matthew 5:13–16, and the congregational hymns included “For the healing of the nation,” “Come, thou fount of every blessing” and “Great is thy faithfulness.”The congregation also sang the national anthem and “America the Beautiful.”The order of service is here. The on-demand video is available here and a photo gallery of the service is here.The prayer service is a tradition dating back to the inauguration of George Washington and is considered the conclusion of the official inaugural events.The first inauguration of George Washington in 1789 in New York City was shaped largely by a Congressional resolution that relied heavily on the English coronation ceremony, according to information on the cathedral’s website. It required that, following the oath of office in front of Federal Hall on Wall Street, the Senate and House walk a short distance to St. Paul’s Chapel on Broadway to hear “divine service” by the chaplain of Congress, Bishop Samuel Provoost. He acted in a role similar to that of the archbishop of Canterbury at English coronation services.The round of public prayer for Obama’s second term began on Jan. 20, the day before the inauguration when the Obama family attended services at Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church, one of the most historic churches in the District. In his sermon, the Rev. Ronald E. Braxton, the church’s senior pastor, used the “forward” theme of Obama’s re-election campaign in telling the story of Moses, according to the White House media report.He urged Obama and others to not allow obstacles to interfere “where forward is the only option.”The congregation was boisterous and the call-and-response grew in intensity during the sermon, according to the media report.On the morning of the inauguration the Obamas, joined by Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill, attended a prayer service at St. John’s Church in Lafayette Square across from the White House. The Episcopal parish has hosted 11 such inauguration morning services, beginning with one for Franklin Roosevelt, the Rev. Luis Leon, the rector, told the congregation, according to the White House media report.The interfaith and ecumenical service, that included a number of clergy, began with the choir singing “The New Colossus.” Followed by Leon’s welcome and the hymn “O God, our help in ages past,” Pastor Joel Hunter of Northland, A Church Distributed in Longwood Florida, prayed in part that God would “use this service to consecrate not only them but those they serve…”Cynthia Hale, senior pastor at Ray of Hope Christian Church in Decatur, Georgia, read the Old Testament lesson (Joshua 1:1-9). followed by the hymn “Praise to the Lord, the almighty” and a reading of Psalm 139:1-13 by Rabbi David Saperstein of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism.After the choir sang “Amazing Grace,” Cardinal Donald Wuerl, archbishop of Washington, read the gospel (Matthew 6:25-34). Then, R&B singer Ledisi sang “I feel like moving on” to very enthusiastic applause, according to the media report.Pastor Andy Stanley from North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Georgia, said in his sermon that Obama ought to be the “pastor in chief” and that he and others in power ought to “leverage that power for the benefit of other people in the room,” noting that the president has “an awfully big room.”The congregation sang “Be thou my vision” and Leon then led the congregation in prayers for the nation. Bishop Vacti Mckenzie, presiding bishop of the 10th Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church blessed Obama, Biden and their families.Later in the day, Leon closed the inauguration ceremony with a benediction in which he prayed in part that God would endow the hearts of Obama and Biden “with wisdom and forbearance, so that peace may prevail with righteousness, justice with order, so that men and women throughout this nation can find with one another the fulfillment of our humanity.”Leon, 63, who was born in Guantanamo, Cuba, came to the United States alone as an 11-year-old in 1961 during what is known as Operation Pedro Pan, according to a report here.A video recording of Leon’s prayer is here and the text of his prayer is here.— The Rev.

GIFT Box, which looks like a gift on the outside, but tells the stories of human trafficking victims on the inside, is on display at 17th Street and Broadway across from Union Square in New York City until Feb. 2; it is sponsored by the United Nations NGO Committee to Stop Trafficking in Persons. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENS[Episcopal News Service] In the months leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII, Episcopalians in New Jersey and surrounding states have been gearing up, not for the big game, but for an influx of women and children who officials say will be trafficked into the region for sexual exploitation.The dioceses of New Jersey and Newark have been hosting educational workshops and seminars at churches across the state, led by Episcopalians like Louis Cavaliere, a retired U.S. Navy captain who became interested in trafficking when he witnessed the “demand side” during active duty.“I was sending people overseas, and they were engaging in this,” said Cavaliere, a member of Grace Church, Merchantville, New Jersey, in a telephone interview.In 2000, the United States enacted the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, which defines sex trafficking as a “severe form of trafficking” in which “a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud or coercion.”In the Diocese of New Jersey, Cavaliere gave talks at churches that focused on the problem of human trafficking occurring alongside huge sporting events such as the Super Bowl.“One Super Bowl after another after another has shown itself to be one of the largest events in the world where the cruelty of human trafficking goes on for several weeks,” New Jersey Rep. Christopher H. Smith said in an Associated Press article on the state’s efforts to curb sex trafficking before the Super Bowl.The Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos will play Feb. 2 in the Meadowlands, a stadium in northern New Jersey, in the Diocese of Newark.“The Super Bowl will bring more glitz and glamour than perhaps any other event New Jersey has ever hosted. And, as Super Bowl history has demonstrated, it will bring more suffering and darkness — in the form of human slavery — than we can possibly measure,” said Newark Bishop Mark Beckwith in a Jan. 24 op-ed that ran in the Star-Ledger. “Most of us won’t see this evil. Most of us won’t know if it is happening in Newark or Nutley, Ho-Ho-Kus or Hackensack, or places in between. Any witness we can make, any awareness we can gather and any light we can shine has the potential to shut down some traffickers — and may provide an opportunity for some in slavery to escape to freedom.”Human trafficking takes many forms: international adoptees, refugees and asylum seekers getting caught in traps, teenage runaways and kidnapping victims. An estimated 27 million people worldwide are victims of trafficking, with most being trafficked for labor and sex, according to the U.S. Department of State’s 2013 Trafficking in Persons Report . In 2012 alone, an additional 46,000 victims were identified, the most recent report says.During the Diocese of Newark’s annual convention, Laura Russell, a lawyer and member of the diocese, gave a Jan. 25 presentation and workshop focused on human trafficking.“It was a very good workshop yesterday, a lot of information and learning,” Martha Gardner, who serves on the diocese’s Justice Board, told ENS in an interview the next day.After the workshop, clergy and laity wanted to know what further training might be available and what congregations could do locally to identify and assist victims, said Gardner, who also chairs the diocese’s Women’s Commission.The Diocese of Newark offers liturgical resources here.In other efforts, Episcopalians from the state’s two dioceses have partnered with the New Jersey Coalition Against Human Trafficking to create awareness in communities across northern New Jersey and as far south as Atlantic City, training hotel managers, who later would train employees, to identify signs of sex trafficking and training truck drivers on how to look for signs that someone is being held against his or her will.“Sex traffickers frequently target vulnerable people with histories of abuse and then use violence, threats, lies, false promises, debt bondage or other forms of control and manipulation to keep victims involved in the sex industry,” according to the Polaris Project, a nongovernment organization  that works against human trafficking and that runs a national hotline to report a tip, access resources, request training or receive referrals.The New Jersey coalition also partnered with SOAP, or Save our Adolescents from Prostitution, to place bars of soap, wrapped with a red band that gives the National Human Trafficking Hotline number, in hotel rooms.“The Super Bowl was an opportunity to highlight the issue,” said Gardner. For at least six months, she said, the diocese has been discussing human trafficking and putting together resources. “On Monday, Feb. 3, it will still be happening here.”Other organizations also hope the Super Bowl will help them raise awareness.A United Nation’s working group, the NGO Committee to Stop Trafficking in Persons, includes some 50 nonprofit organizations and a large interfaith presence, including Cavaliere; Lynnaia Main, the Episcopal Church’s officer for global relations and partnerships; and other Episcopalians. It has sponsored a U.N. GIFT Box in New York.Beginning on Jan. 23, visitors to Union Square passing along 17th Street and Broadway could see a big blue gift box with a red ribbon. The GIFT stood for “Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking.”On the inside, the box told the stories of trafficking victims like 35-year-old Holly Smith, an American who, when she was 14 and already had been the victim of sexual exploitation, fell into the hands of a trafficker. And there’s the story of Sofia, a 20-year-old Mexican who was kidnapped in her country, brought to New York and forced into prostitution by an international trafficking ring.Rita Fishman, who represents the International Council of Jewish Women on the NGO Committee to Stop Trafficking in Persons, explains the origin and purpose of the U.N. GIFT Box. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSThe gift box concept first was deployed in London before the 2012 Olympic Games by the founder of Stop the Traffik, said Rita Fishman, who represents the International Council of Jewish Women on the NGO committee.“You’re so intrigued by the paper and the ribbon, the whole feel of it,” she said during an interview with ENS on Jan. 24. “But, sadly, in the hands of someone who wants to deceive you …”“The problem is, it’s a hidden population, and we don’t know who they are,” said Fishman. Box visitors’ reactions, she said, range from “I’ve learned a lot” to “I didn’t know this was going on here.”“And when you tell them it’s happening in New York, California, Connecticut, they are incredulous … it’s amazing to learn it’s in your own backyard.”Nationally, the U.S. Department of Justice reports that 100,000 to 300,000 children, average ages 12 to 14, are at risk for commercial sexual exploitation, a form of human trafficking, each year in the United States.Since 2000, General Convention has passed resolutions condemning human trafficking, supporting trafficking victims and calling for churchwide public-education campaigns. In 2012, the convention passed a resolution calling for dialogue across provinces. (Episcopalians Against Human Trafficking have started a Facebook page.)In March 2013, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori hosted a churchwide conversation focused on defining human trafficking and showing how it links with violence against women and girls. The event was held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.“I have seen an evolution since the churchwide conversation in March,” said Main, staff liaison to the subcommittee of the Executive Council Committee on the Status of Women. “One of the things we discovered is that there are lots of Episcopalians doing local work, [operating] shelters, educational awareness, going to hubs and administering Communion, social services and all the rest.”On Jan. 17, Main helped facilitate a 90-minute call including some 35 people from the East Coast to Hawaii. Participants shared information, programs and resources on trafficking, victim rescue and awareness materials for schools, churches and communities, as well as discussed the upcoming Super Bowl.Executive Council member Lelanda Lee, who chairs the Joint Standing Committee on Advocacy and Networking for Mission, coordinates the work of the Executive Council Committee on the Status of Women.“Human trafficking is a topic that is a concern to many parts of the church,” said Lee after the Jan. 17 call. Based on what participants shared, it’s obvious a lot of work is happening on the ground, she said. “For my committee, I want to be aware of that activity, to better know and network that work across the church.“And we also want to support the work of OGR [the Episcopal Church’s Washington-D.C.-based Office of Government Relations] that interacts with policymakers in regard to legislation that impacts people who are trafficked, both citizens and internationals.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.  Rector Albany, NY Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS January 29, 2014 at 1:11 pm It happens in many places , like article states it is hidden. there have been many instances in areas where where the is a transient population even here in SW Florida.

Glioblastoma Brain Tumors: What is John McCain going up against?

Posted on

first_img TAGSFlorida Hospital – ApopkaJohn McCain Previous articleIn case you missed it: The Apopka news week in reviewNext article30+ Creative and Doable Alternative Housing Ideas Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR 4 COMMENTS UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 5 Things to Know about Glioblastoma Brain Tumors Mama Mia July 25, 2017 at 8:02 pm Senator McCain, of all people, should realize how important good healthcare insurance is to the American people since his own life is in jeopardy now due to his cancer diagnosis. I don’t get mad for the Republican’s votes to open debate about the healthcare, but to not come up with something for 2 years, or to vote in something that is junk healthcare that doesn’t cover everyone, equally in all states, with good coverage, that is reasonable in cost like Trump promised, and just a lie, is irresponsible and they should be ashamed of themselves in Washington, and need to be VOTED OUT OF OFFICE ! They get their great healthcare, at VERY LITTLE COST! I blame Trump the most! A very despicable human! Before Trump said McCain was no war hero and he preferred those who didn’t get caught by our enemies, talking about his getting captured and put in POW camp….. now he brags about McCain, because of his making the trip for the vote. Trump is a user, an abuser, and a big LOSER, a LIAR, and LOW-LIFE! Start impeachment now! Trump knew how badly Spicer wanted to meet the Pope, as Spicer is a Catholic, but Trump denied him something that would have been a chance of a lifetime for him, to meet the Pope, something Spicer wanted badly, when Trump visited the Pope on his trip abroad, along with the others he did invite …… AG Jeff Sessions, an Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts himself formally, wanted to be present among the 40,000 present at the Boy Scouts Jamboree, but Trump didn’t invite Sessions, instead humiliated Sessions publicly in a big way……vengeful pettiness never makes a leader look great, or America great either. Correction: In my above post about AG Jeff Sessions, himself formally being an Eagle Scout, I meant formerly, not formally. I just happened to catch my posting mistake, sorry……… Reply From Florida Hospital ApopkaSen. John McCain, 80, has been diagnosed with a primary glioblastoma, a type of brain tumor, according to Mayo Clinic doctors directly involved in the senator’s care.The senator underwent surgery to remove a blood clot on Friday at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix. Lab results from that surgery confirmed the presence of brain cancer associated with the blood clot.You might be wondering about this aggressive type of brain cancer.As a neuro-oncologist and neurologist at Florida Hospital with 30 years of experience in treating brain and spinal cord tumors, Dr. Herbert Newton explains five things to know about glioblastoma.1. Glioblastoma is a highly malignant form of brain cancer that spreads quickly within the brain.Glial cells form the brain’s glue-like supportive tissue, and the most abundant glial cells in the brain are called astrocytes, named for their star-like shape. Astrocytes tile the central nervous system to help regulate the brain’s transmission of electrical impulses. They are closely connected to the brain’s dense network of blood vessels, which contributes to the aggressiveness of cancers that affect them.“Tumors arising from astrocytes are called astrocytomas, and glioblastomas are the most aggressive type (grade 4),” explains Dr. Newton.“Glioblastomas are the most common malignant brain tumors found in adults over age 25, making up about two-thirds of astrocytomas,” he adds.And while glioblastomas are not common compared to other types of cancer, Dr. Newton states that as specialists in treating cancers that affect the brain, it is a common cancer that he and his team treats at the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute.“Patients are beginning to travel to us for their glioblastoma treatment; we have seen up to three new cases a week,” Dr. Newton notes. “While we offer some of the latest treatments for glioblastoma, this cancer is very aggressive and no treatment is curative at this point in time.”2. Glioblastomas are often diagnosed after a quick onset of symptoms.“Glioblastoma is typically a very fast growing tumor, so symptoms tend to come on quickly and intensely and correlate to the part of the brain that the glioblastoma is affecting,” advises Dr. Newton.That said, he explains that a very common initial symptom is a fast onset of headaches that differ from your typical tension or migraine headache. Other symptoms can occur alone or in combination, and include:Balance issuesWeakness on one side of the bodyChanges in memory or cognitive abilitiesDifficulties with speech or vocationBlurred visionSeizuresAccording to Dr. Newton, patients can experience atypical symptoms, such as blood clot that hemorrhages.“Patients generally present to the ER or their primary care physician with these symptoms, depending on how severe, and after diagnostic testing that includes an MRI, will get the formal diagnosis,” advises Dr. Newton.If glioblastoma is suspected, patients will then be referred to a neuro-oncologist such as Dr. Newton for further evaluation and treatment recommendations.3. Although this form of cancer cannot be cured, treatments may improve the prognosis.“The worldwide standard of care for glioblastoma treatment includes a three-phased protocol,” explains Dr. Newton.1. Maximal surgical resection (removal of the tumor)2. 6-week course of chemotherapy with temozolomide3. Radiation therapyDr. Newton describes another FDA-approved glioblastoma treatment option offered to qualifying patients at the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute, called Optune. This cap-like device creates low-intensity electric fields that could help slow or stop glioblastoma cancer cells from dividing, and may also cause some of them to die.Dr. Newton explains that every patient’s course of treatment is always customized considering a host of factors, including age, medical history, current health status and how well each patient tolerates treatments, which often becomes harder with advanced age.And even for patients that do tolerate the treatments well, Glioblastoma is often challenging to treat because of the tumor’s:Heterogeneity (tumor cells that express and metastasize differently)Possible location in a region of the brain that’s difficult to access, or too close to major blood vessels or speech or motor strip of the brainTendency to reoccur rapidly and aggressivelyMany of these are challenges are being studied through clinical trials. Gaining a better understanding why and how glioblastoma forms and progresses in the brain could lead to a cure.“There are clinical trials examining specific molecular therapies for glioblastomas that could bring more targeted treatments in the future, but this is still under study as a first line of treatment,” says Dr. Newton.4. The exact cause of glioblastomas is unknown.“Most glioblastomas are not inherited — they usually occur sporadically in people with no family history of tumors,” advises Dr. Newton.He continues, “They can rarely occur in people with certain genetic syndromes, but it’s more likely to see some families having a strong predilection to cancer in general.”5. While there is no cure, there is still hope.Doctors like Dr. Newton at the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute are always pushing the boundaries of medicine, learning of and implementing some of the latest treatment options and surgical techniques to improve the care of patients with glioblastoma and other types of brain tumors.Dr. Newton is one of the Institute’s very experienced neurological cancer specialists, who has turned his fascination for the brain to helping patients find hope, even in the most serious circumstances.Dr. Newton concludes:“I was always interested in the brain and how cancer affects the nervous system, which is what drove me put these interests together with my career in neuro-oncology. In our field, it is our hope to make an impact. And while we sometimes must provide sad or disappointing news, we always strive to extend and improve quality of life while providing comfort to patients and their families.” Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Gov.

The importance of theory guiding practice

Posted on

first_imgFred GoldsteinWW photo: Fred GoldsteinExcerpts taken from the Nov. 17 talk by Fred Goldstein, WWP secretariat member and author of “Low-Wage Capitalism” and “Capitalism at a Dead End,” given at the Workers World Party Nov. 17-18 conference in New York. I want to talk about an event in the history of science that’s somewhat remote, but I think demonstrates the crucial relationship between theory and correct practice.On Sept. 23, 1846, an astronomer in Paris, who was studying reports and calculations of an unexpected deviation in the orbit of an outer planet, sent a message to an astronomer in Berlin, who had been observing the solar system through his telescope, and told him that if he pointed his telescope at a certain time, in a certain precise direction, he would see a new planet that had never been seen before.The German astronomer followed the instructions, pointed his telescope and for the first time saw the eighth planet ultimately named Neptune. Up until then, only seven planets were known.What is important for us is that this observation was done on the basis of the theory of planetary motion worked out painstakingly two hundred years before by a scientist named Johann Kepler.Fast forward to August 1917 in Russia. The tsar had been overthrown in February, the workers had won many freedoms, the war was going on, and Lenin was busy studying everything Marx and Engels wrote on the theory of the state, on the Paris Commune and on force in history. Based on this he wrote “State and Revolution.” By focusing on the theory of the state, Lenin kept his own party and the workers on track to the first socialist revolution in history.In the same way Mao studied Marxist theory to enable him to get the confidence and ability to lead a small detachment of communist workers and millions of peasants to sweep away all reactionary classes and imperialism and establish the Chinese revolution.Now fast forward again to the year 2008 and the unfolding economic crisis then engulfing capitalism. In the fall of that year, the party used Marxist theory of capitalism written 150 earlier to point its theoretical telescope, so to speak, on the jobless recoveries of the past two downturns. We studied the development of technology and how it created permanent, growing mass unemployment, speed-up, low wages, the destruction of the upper layers of the working class, mostly the white, male, privileged layers.Capitalism at a tipping pointOn that basis we postulated that the capitalist system would not be able to recover from this crisis as it had recovered from so many crises in the past.On this basis we determined that the capitalist system had reached a tipping point: that workers were being thrust into global wage competition in a race to the bottom of the income scale; that technology was growing as a factor in the development of capitalism at an enormous pace, invading virtually every form of employment — from construction to serving in a restaurant, to steel and auto production, to computer programming and even medicine.We said at the time that underneath the crisis was a new stage of capitalist overproduction — a stage in which capitalists have forced so much productivity upon the workers through technology and lowering wages so much that as soon as the capitalist system begins to start up again, such a great quantity of goods is produced so quickly that they cannot be sold at a profit. The markets would not be able to absorb the goods and services, and the system would either stagnate or go down again. Layoffs would continue and the working class and the oppressed would be pushed further and further up against the wall.Now, just shy of five years since this crisis began in December 2007, Europe is in an agonizing debt crisis and going back into a recession, including Germany and England. Mass unemployment and cutbacks are plaguing the working class, especially in Greece, Portugal, Spain, Ireland and Italy. Japanese capitalism has shrunk in the last quarter, and unemployment is on the rise. Capitalism is slowing down worldwide, in India, Russia, Brazil, and growth in the Chinese economy has begun to sharply decline.In the U.S. two and a half years into the capitalist recovery, there has not been a dent in mass unemployment. At the present rate of job growth, the unemployed will never be rehired. Long-term unemployment, six months or more, is at a record high. The rate of job creation does not even keep up with population growth. Millions have given up and dropped out of the work force.This is the longest, most severe jobless recovery since World War II. Whatever recovery there has been was for the bosses and the stock market, while the workers sink deeper into hardship and crisis.A generation of youth is hitting a brick wall. If they have the resources to go to college, they end up as indentured servants, owing a lifetime of student debt — over $1 trillion now. They cannot use their skills to get jobs because the jobs they prepared for don’t exist in millions of cases.If they don’t have the resources to go to college, they face low-wage, dead-end jobs or worse — prison through the school-to-prison pipeline.The situation of youth in the U.S., Europe, the Middle East and all around the capitalist world is truly a mark of capitalism at a dead end. If there is no future for the youth, there is not going to be any future for capitalism.Now that the elections are over in the U.S., the ruling class and their politicians are in a big dispute over how much more suffering to inflict upon the masses and how much money should be diverted from services to free it up to pay the bankers.This is the dispute over what they call the “fiscal cliff.” But for the masses it is not a fiscal cliff. It is a “cutback cliff” that the bankers and their politicians are trying to drag us over.We are supposed to be relieved if they strike a “grand bargain” and try to put some small tax on the rich, while they rob us of Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security, among other things.Building the partyTo get back to revolutionary theory, our science tells us to build a revolutionary workers’ party and prepare to help the workers make a revolution when capitalism creates the right conditions — the way Lenin, Mao, Ho Chi Minh, Kim Il Sung, Fidel, Che and Amilcar Cabral all did.Our science tells us that rebellion of the workers and oppressed is inevitable. But it also tells us that rebellion alone will not overthrow capitalism.It tells us that it takes supreme organization, a great store of experience in the class struggle, a profound understanding of the capitalist class enemy, an understanding of the state and the study of previous revolutionary successes as well as failures. We must create an organization that will be a combat organization steeled in the struggle of the workers against exploitation and every form of oppression — racism, sexism, the oppression of lesbian-gay-transgender- bisexual-queer people, of the disabled, of immigrants.Above all the leadership and the rank and file as well must strive to master the fundamentals of Marxism and working-class history as an indispensable weapon in the day-to-day struggle — whether it is for a street light or conducting a general strike. It is our compass that keeps us on course at all times.It is on the basis of Marxist theory that we foresee a future of social upheaval and revolutionary opportunity as clearly as the French scientist saw that Neptune would appear. This lies ahead — despite the lack of widespread mass struggle we are all living through right now.In that spirit we want to build the People’s Power Assemblies. We want build our party. And right now we want to tell the bankers, the bosses, the Obama administration and the Republicans: we will not be dragged over your cutback cliff.Fight the bosses! Build the party! Study revolution! Down with capitalism!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

However, two units were redeployed to the scene to provide further assistance at the scene and remained there for some time on Tuesday.Newly elected to the merged single authority, Cllr Shane Clifford who lives in the village of Castleconnell said that it was very sad to see the historic building destroyed.“It was a key focus of mine to seek a new tenant for this premises and I had been doing a lot of work with regards to that recently.Mr Clifford said that the building, which was unoccupied for some time, “is steeped in history and could have brought huge employment and life to the village”.However he thanked the community and the fire services for their quick reaction to contain the fire and the damage caused.A garda technical and forensic examination is underway to determine the cause of the blaze.center_img Email Watch the streamed gig for Fergal Nash album launch New Music: 40Hurtz TAGSfireMusic Limerickworrall’s inn Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Printlast_img read more

Slow broadband impacting on County Limerick businesses

first_img TAGSAdareAskeatonCllr Emmett O’BrienEircomKildimolimerickNewcastle WestSafe Aid Training Ltd by Alan Jacquesalan@limerickpost.ieSign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Marion Morrissey of Safe Aid Training waiting for an internet connection with Cllr Emmett O’BrienTHE roll-out of broadband to rural Limerick is as slow as the internet service itself.That’s the opinion of independent councillor Emmett O’Brien, who is concerned that six months after Eircom promised super-fast e-fibre broadband for Adare and Askeaton, people are still relying on the third slowest broadband service in the country.“The deadline for this super-fast broadband was pushed back from July, to August, to September, to October, and then to early 2015. Eircom’s website suggests that the broadband would be up and running in January 2015, but the service is still not available to businesses and private citizens in Adare and along the Shannon Estuary,” he said.And he believes that the lack of a proper broadband service is inhibiting investment and job creation in the area.“The lack of proper broadband in rural Limerick points to the Government’s lack of commitment to the people of rural Ireland. Over recent weeks, we learnt that at least 65 permanent jobs are to be lost at Pallas Foods in Newcastle West, following on from the 200 plus jobs already lost there in the last 15 months,” he commented.Cllr O’Brien is calling for special attention to be given to areas such as Askeaton, Adare, Newcastle West and Kilmallock that continue to be “bottom of the list when it comes to essential infrastructure”.“If any company is to invest in rural Limerick, or any indigenous business is to succeed in the global market, adequate broadband is a minimum requirement. And while 16 areas in Limerick are on a two year waiting list for speedier broadband, many more haven’t even made the waiting list.“A guarantee was given that this multi million euro programme would ensure high speed connection for people living and working in this area. Let us hope this project isn’t also delayed, as the roll out of proper broadband in Limerick continues to echo its current connection speed.”Marion Morrissey who runs a training business called Safe Aid Training Ltd in Ballinacarriga Kildimo agreed with Cllr O’Brien’s sentiments.“Not having access to broadband as a basic amenity, makes running your own business very frustrating and makes it extremely difficult to expand within the marketplace. It is also very time consuming and inhibits us from running an efficient service through no fault of our own,” she explained.There was no comment from Eircom at the time of going to press.
