Texas Southern University's Earl Carl Institute Receives HALO Grant from The Texas Bar Foundation

To be effective and to improve long-term outcomes, we have recognized we need to address the whole person. Failure to do so can often result in the same or other legal issues rearising in the future.”

— Sarah Guidry, Ex. Dir., Earl Carl Institute

HOUSTON, TEXAS, USA, May 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Texas Bar Foundation recently announced that The Earl Carl Institute for Legal and Social Policy (ECI) was awarded $45,000 to implement the HALO (Holistic Advocacy in Legal Operations) Initiative. This grant will provide holistic legal representation by assessing and addressing a broad array of biological, psychological, and social issues that impact ECI's clients.

ECI will use the funds to hire a licensed social worker with a law degree to add a social services component to its legal advocacy work of assisting clients in cases involving housing and real property matters and to juveniles involved in multiple systems (juvenile justice, foster care, mental health, and school discipline), individuals who need their records cleared and persons who have been wrongfully convicted. “This grant from the Texas Bar Foundation will allow ECI to continue providing crucial free legal assistance to Houston’s underserved communities,” said Sarah Guidry, Executive Director of The Earl Car Institute. “Many of our clients come to us facing issues that are by-products of the reason they need legal representation, and legal representation alone cannot cure the underlying issue. With a licensed social worker on staff, ECI can improve the welfare of our clientele by assessing and addressing a broad array of biopsychosocial issues that impact the communities that we serve and allow us to provide holistic client-centered representation. To be effective and to improve long-term outcomes, we have recognized that we need to address the whole person. Failure to do so can often result in the same or other legal issues rearising in the future.”

Since its inception in 1965, the Texas Bar Foundation has awarded more than $22 million in grants to law-related programs. Supported by members of the State Bar of Texas, the Texas Bar Foundation is the nation's largest charitably-funded bar foundation.

Founded in 1992, The Earl Carl Institute for Legal and Social Policy, located on the campus of Texas Southern University, has become a top-tier think tank focusing on research, writing, and outreach. The mission of the Institute is to empower underserved and disenfranchised communities by addressing systemic social issues through legal representation, research, education, and advocacy.

— Dr. John Burroughs

KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI, UNITED STATES, May 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — John A. Burroughs, MD, is a new Medical Director at Crossroads Hospice & Palliative Care in Kansas City. Dr. Burroughs partners with other clinicians and Crossroads Medical Directors for the delivery of hospice and palliative care with a clinical team of more than 55 end-of-life care professionals.

A family doctor, Dr. Burroughs chose to transition from a successful practice he built over more than 20 years in Liberty, Missouri for the full-time Medical Director position. But he’s not new to Crossroads.

Dr. Burroughs has been a respected part-time Associate Medical Director with Crossroads since 2009. He was also Medical Director of a long-term care facility where Crossroads has provided end-of-life care to residents for many years.

A graduate of Duke University and Wake Forest School of Medicine, Dr. Burroughs is looking forward to specializing in end-of-life care. “Offering dignity and control to patients and their families is what I get to help with,” Dr. Burroughs said of his new role.

“We are fortunate to have Dr. Burroughs join Crossroads, especially as full-time dedicated Medical Directors are a rarity at most hospices,” said Dr. Timothy Ihrig, Crossroads’ Chief Medical Officer. “His family medicine experience, his compassion and his high level of clinical acumen will benefit our hospice and palliative patients and their families immensely.”

BRASILIA, BRASILE, May 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Reputação Online De Iván Duque Após A Retirada Da Reforma Tributária [CASO DE ESTUDO]

Um estudo de ReputationUP analisou a reputação online de Iván Duque, atual presidente da Colômbia. Através dessa análise, conhecemos o sentimento e a percepção de Iván Duque após a elaboração e posterior retirada da reforma tributária. A análise completa foi publicada no site ReputationUP.

Os parâmetros examinados são os seguintes:

Sentiment:
Tendência de sentimento;
Temas positivos e negativos;
Temas online;
Emoções.

O que é a reforma fiscal?
A proposta de lei prevê a cobrança do IVA, que é de 19%, sobre as taxas de serviços públicos de energia, água e saneamento, gás doméstico e alimentos considerados prioritários. Após quatro dias de fortes manifestações em todo o país, a tensão nas ruas e os abusos das autoridades foram tornados públicos através de vídeos amadores publicados em redes sociais. A notícia deu a volta ao mundo e essa notoriedade forçou Duque a retirar a reforma em 2 de maio.

Por que os protestos continuam após a retirada da reforma?
As manifestações mostram a insatisfação dos cidadãos com o atual governo de Duque. Suas marchas e protestos exigem:
Uma economia mais igualitária, a Colômbia é o país com a maior desigualdade da América Latina: 42,5% da população é pobre, que vive com menos de 331.668 pesos colombianos por mês (cerca de 75 euros). Novas reformas da polícia nacional, devido à violência perpetrada por este órgão nacional, trazidas à luz durante as últimas horas nas redes sociais através da hashtag #SOScolombia. A Saúde, que aparentemente foi incluída na nova reforma e parece proporcionar mais benefícios às empresas do que aos utilizadores. Nas últimas horas, vídeos e imagens fortes de confrontos entre manifestantes e policiais se tornaram virais em todo o mundo. Depois que o governo deu a ordem para militarizar as ruas do país, os confrontos não param. Há pelo menos 26 homicídios por tiroteio policial documentados até agora.

Iván Duque: el análise
O presidente da Colômbia foi prejudicado, não só pela introdução de uma reforma tributária, mas também pela violência causada por entidades governamentais. A ONG Temblores registou até 940 casos de violência policial durante os cinco dias de protesto, 672 detenções arbitrárias, 92 casos de violência física ou tortura pela polícia e 4 vítimas de violência sexual. Além disso, em 3 de maio, Alberto Carrasquilla anunciou sua renúncia como ministro, através de uma declaração do Ministério da Fazenda.

Nas últimas horas foram produzidos quase 26.000 resultados.

Online-Ruf Von Iván Duque Nach Rückzug Der Steuerreform [FALLSTUDIE]

Eine Studie von ReputationUP hat den Online-Ruf von Iván Duque analysiert, dem derzeitigen kolumbianischen Präsidenten.

BERLIN, BERLIN, DEUTSCHLAND, May 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Eine Studie von ReputationUP hat den Online-Ruf von Iván Duque analysiert, dem derzeitigen kolumbianischen Präsidenten. Durch diese Analyse kennen wir die Stimmung und Wahrnehmung gegenüber Iván Duque als Folge der Ausarbeitung und der anschließenden Zurücknahme der Steuerreform. Die vollständige Analyse wurde auf der ReputationUP-Website veröffentlicht.

Die folgenden Parameter wurden untersucht:
Suchergebnisse;
Stimmung;
Stimmungstrend;
Positive und negative Themen;
Online-Themen;
Emotionen.

Was ist die Steuerreform?
Der Gesetzentwurf sieht die Erhebung der Mehrwertsteuer in Höhe von 19% auf die Sätze der öffentlichen Dienstleistungen für Energie, Wasser und Abwasser, Gas und Lebensmittel vor, die als vorrangig angesehen werden. Nach vier Tage langen starker Protesten im ganzen Land wurden die Spannungen auf den Straßen und die Sicherheitskräfte Gewalt durch Amateurvideos in sozialen Netzwerken öffentlich gemacht. Die Nachricht ging um die Welt und folglich wurde Duque gezwungen, die Reform am 2. Mai zurückzuziehen.

Warum dauern die Proteste auch nach dem Rückzug der Reform an?
Die Demonstrationen spiegeln die Unzufriedenheit der Bürger mit der derzeitigen Regierung Duque wider. Krawalle und Proteste fordern:Ein gerechtes Wirtschaftssystem, Kolumbien ist das Land mit der größten Ungleichheit in Lateinamerika: 42,5% der Bevölkerung sind arm, was bedeutet, dass sie von weniger als 331.668 kolumbianischen Pesos pro Monat (ca. 75 Euro) leben. Neue Reformen der nationalen Polizei, aufgrund der Gewalt, die von dieser nationalen Einrichtung ausgeübt wird und die jeder in den letzten Stunden in sozialen Netzwerken unter dem Hashtag #SOSColombia sehen kann. Gesundheitsreform, das offenbar in die neue Reform einbezogen wurde, aber den Unternehmen offenbar mehr Vorteile bietet als den Bürgern. In den letzten Stunden, starke Videos und Bilder von Auseinandersetzungen zwischen Demonstranten und der Polizei gingen viral um die ganze Welt. Nachdem die Regierung den Befehl gegeben hat, zur Militarisierung der Straßen des Landes, hören die Zusammenstöße nicht auf. Bisher wurden mindestens 26 Polizeischüsse dokumentiert.

Iván Duque: Die Stimmungsanalyse
Der kolumbianische Präsident wurde nicht nur durch die Einführung einer Steuerreform, sondern auch durch die Gewalt von Regierungsbehörden geschädigt. In den fünf Protest Tagen verzeichnete die NRO Temblores bis zu 940 Fälle von Polizeigewalt, 672 willkürliche Verhaftungen, 92 Fälle von körperlicher Gewalt oder Folter durch die Polizisten und 4 Opfer sexueller Missbrauch. Am 3. Mai gab Alberto Carrasquilla durch eine Pressemitteilung des Wirtschaftsministeriums den Rücktritt von seinem Amt bekannt. Es scheint, dass sein Rücktritt auf die Tatsache zurückzuführen ist, dass er einer der Hauptbefurworter der umstrittenen Steuerreform war.

Stimmung
Es geht um den Prozentsatz der positiven oder negativen Stimmung, der von Benutzern in sozialen Netzwerken erzeugt wird. Das ReputationUP Study Center berechnete auch die im Internet erzeugte Nettostimmung auf Iván Duque. Dies ist der Netto-Prozentsatz, der auf einer Skala zwischen -100 und 100 gemessen wird. Er wird in den folgenden Diagrammen angezeigt.

Der negative Sentiment-Score beträgt 68%. Während die positive Stimmung ist nur 1,4%. Dies erzeugt eine Nettostimmung von -96%. Aufgrund der Protesten ist die Nettostimmung an einem Tag um 100,2% gesunken. Der Leistungstrend bezieht sich auf Interaktionen über einen bestimmten Zeitraum. Während der letzten Stunden wurden fast 26.000 Ergebnisse gefunden.

Emotionen
Hier sind die Ergebnisse der Emotionsanalyse zum untersuchten Profil:
78,5%, Wut.
10,1%, Traurigkeit.
0,0%, Freude.
9,5%, Angst.

Schlussfolgerungen
Das Study Center von ReputationUP, führend im Online-Reputationsmanagement, hat den Online-Ruf vom kolumbianischen Präsidenten Iván Duque analysiert. Aus dieser Analyse können die folgenden Schlussfolgerungen gezogen werden: Der negative Stimmungswert (68%) gegenüber Iván Duque ist höher als der positive Stimmungswert (1,4%). Dies hat eine Nettostimmung von -96% erzeugt. Duques Stimmung ist immer noch negativ und der negative Prozentsatz könnte sogar steigen. Was Emotionen betrifft, ist Wut das vorherrschende Gefühl.

Embracing Impact Sourcing in the Global Business Services Sector

Clinton Cohen, CEO of iContact BPO

Gareth Levinsohn, Commercial Director of SSDA

Gareth Levinsohn, Commercial Director of SSDA

By applying impact sourcing, the GBS sector can make a fundamental difference in the lives of disadvantaged and disabled youth who would otherwise not have access to the formal economy.”

— Clinton Cohen

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA, May 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — With South Africa nominated best offshore CX delivery location in 2021 in the Ryan Strategic Advisory BPO Omnibus Survey, its Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry has been given a significant boost in terms of investment and employment potential. It also means that adopting impact sourcing and socially responsible supply chains will be given impetus as job creation surges on the back of global demand for the sector’s services. According to Business Process Enabling South Africa (BPESA), the sector is primed to create around 500 000 new jobs over the next 10 years.

iContact BPO, a customer service call centre serving international markets notably in North America, and Shapiro Shaik Defries and Associates (SSDA), a first party collections business, are two BPO providers within the Alefbet Holdings group that have a focused impact sourcing strategy of employing disadvantaged and disabled youth.

Clinton Cohen, CEO of iContact BPO, which was recently featured in the Impact Sourcing Champions Index in Fortune Magazine, explains that by applying impact sourcing, the GBS industry is well positioned to make a fundamental difference in the lives of disadvantaged and disabled youth who would otherwise not have access to the formal economy. About 90% of iContact BPO employees are recruited through impact sourcing, the average age is 23, 65% are women and 10% are disabled.

“Financial constraints and limited job market access mean that earning a stable living is a daily struggle for more than half of our youth, which in turn has significant negative socio-economic repercussions. By implementing impact sourcing as a strategic focus in our business, we’re able to create opportunities for vulnerable youth who would otherwise face bleak career prospects. The GBS sector is in fact one of few industries that grew and created thousands of new jobs during the pandemic when most other businesses were downscaling,” explains Cohen.

Gareth Levinsohn, Commercial Director of collections BPO business, SSDA adds that the hybrid work models that evolved from the pandemic have opened more avenues for impact sourcing. For a disadvantaged and disabled employee, the costs and practical challenges of transport to office environments are eliminated by providing a work-from-home model, supported by the necessary IT security, tech support and connectivity they need to work productively.

“We’re seeing higher levels of productivity with employees who are now able to work and earn during the time they would ordinarily have spent commuting to the call centre, which for many can take as much of four hours of their workday using public transport. The transport cost savings are also significant, not to mention eliminating the obstacles and discomfort that our disabled colleagues experience in accessing public transport that caters for their mobility needs,” adds Levinsohn.

While the initial work-from-home model was a necessity in dealing with COVID-19, hybrid working models are an opportunity to be flexible and responsive to the needs of our customers and our workforce. Currently, 60% of SSDA’s workforce has continued to work remotely, while others who prefer to work in the call centre for logistical and practical reasons can do so in a safe, socially distanced and formalised work environment that meets their needs.

By having impact sourcing as a strategic imperative across the Alefbet group, strong synergies are created between the various businesses which providers employees with a diverse range of job roles and opportunities to pursue in their career advancement.

“Our impact sourcing strategy ensures that recruits gain professional skills and transferable credentials that are applicable in diverse areas such as business development, administration, management, human resources, operations, IT support, training and so on. Today’s customer service agent could be tomorrow’s team leader, HR professional, trainer or payroll manager. Most disadvantaged and disabled recruits have not had the benefit of career guidance or the privilege of tertiary education paths in pursuit of a specific career due to severe financial constraints. An environment like ours opens their eyes to the many diverse roles and opportunities within GBS, with an employer willing to invest in their potential. Focused learnerships and training interventions mean that they attain recognised qualifications and are well on their way to building fulfilling careers with ample growth potential,” concludes Cohen.

For the Alefbet group, its impact sourcing models exceed the matrix of what customers want and what business needs. Most of all, there is the real satisfaction that impact sourcing provides in being able to do well as a business, by doing good in the community, for the people who need the door opened the most.

Jukka Davidsson: Freedom of Speech is Essential Cornerstone for Democratic Society

Swedish Filmmaker Exposes Biden Corruption In Eastern Europe And Ukraine (Glitch Free)

The Common Sense Conservative, a YouTube channel of Robert Zerfing has released a short film about Joe Biden’s controversial activities in Europe.

Freedom of speech and the opportunity to express alternative points of view and “harsh truths” remains an essential cornerstone of any democratic society”

— Jukka Davidsson

MIKKELI, FINLAND, May 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Common Sense Conservative, a YouTube channel of Robert Zerfing has released a short film about Joe Biden’s controversial activities in Europe. The channel is aimed at providing a public platform for voicing alternative opinions and analysis. “I hope to do this by filming events that the mainstream media purposefully ignores, and providing my thoughts and perspective on current events. I do this so that people may just take a moment and reflect on what’s really going on in this country, and at the very least, walk away being a little better informed” – says Robert Zerfing.
The new film talks about alleged corruption cases and the scandalous payment of $1 bln of taxpayers money needed to ensure control over Ukrainian politics. The issue was widely dissed by Trump’s team during the electoral campaign and seems to have been forgotten after Joe Biden was elected.

101 Year Old Female Spy Who Worked Behind Nazi Lines – Signs WWII Fighter Pilot’s Log Book

101 Year Old Spy Marthe Cohn Signing The Log Book

WWII Veteran Major Cohn Signing the Fighter Pilot’s Log Book

Worldwide Remembrance & Reconciliation Initiative – The Log Book Project (TLBP)

RANCHO PALOS VEERDES, CALIFORNIA, USA, May 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Highly decorated 101 year old former spy, Marthe Cohn who worked behind Nazi lines and helped speed up the end of WWII, and her husband Dr. Major Cohn, both WWII veterans signed, The Log Book Project (TLBP) contributing to this dynamic history project.

Nick Devaux from St Lucia turned his father Cyril Devaux’s fighter pilot log-book into a truly unique token of remembrance. By inviting WWII veterans and witnesses around the world to sign and share their first hand accounts, the book has become a living memorial. The log book has become a worldwide remembrance and reconciliation initiative.

The Log Book Project (TLBP)

Over 4 years, 100 signatures, and thousands of miles later, TLBP continues to capture these signatures and testimonies. The effort is aimed at raising awareness of the unspeakable horrific suffering and deprivation experienced by millions – on all sides – during World War II and the need to strive continuously for peace and reconciliation. A secondary but equally important endeavor involves documenting the book’s remarkable journey through the hundreds of hands that have carefully facilitated this unique poignant token, its mission, and all it signifies.

Marthe Cohn lived through WWII joined the French Army during WWII after Hitler’s rise to power. After keeping silent for nearly 60 years, Mrs. Cohn now shares the extraordinary story of how she managed to beat the odds and fight the Nazis as a spy after her family fled to the south of France and a sister was sent to Auschwitz. She used her German accent and blonde hair to pose as a German nurse and slipped behind enemy lines to gather essential information about Nazi movements for Allied commanders. At the age of 101 she still tours the world, lecturing and promoting her message to people of all generations – to stand up for humanity and what you believe in. Her harrowing journey is told in the recent award winning documentary film, “Chichinette: The Accidental Spy”. Marthe’s palpable reverence and joie de vivre shine through, filling the film with hope for the future. Her spy memoir entitled “Behind Enemy Lines” chronicles her courageous work and her remarkable life. She has been awarded countless medals and honors including the Croix de Guerre, 1945 Médaille militaire, 1999 Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur, 2002 Woman of Valor from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, 2002 Medal of the Nation's Gratitude, 2006 The Cross of the Order of Merit, Germany's Highest Honor. There currently is no serving French general who has obtained the gold medal from the National Society of Mutual Aid for the Military Medal which was awarded to Mrs. Cohn in 2019.

Medical Organizations in the UK & U.S. Join the Government of India to Recommend Ivermectin to end the COVID-19 Crisis

The Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance Logo

The Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance

The British Ivermectin Recommendation Development Panel, the Evidence-Based Medical Consultancy & the FLCCC Encourage More Treatment Protocols for Severe COVID

WASHINGTON, DC, US, May 5, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The British Ivermectin Recommendation Development Panel (BIRD), the Evidence-Based Medical Consultancy (E-BMC) in Bath, United Kingdom, and the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) of the United States, today praised the recent updated guidance from the Government of India Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) to include ivermectin in their guidelines for the treatment of COVID-19.

In a joint statement issued by the two organizations, they call on hospitals and doctors in India to immediately adopt the updated guidance by using ivermectin in the treatment of all phases of COVID-19. The statement goes on to describe how a higher dose of ivermectin can be effective for more severe cases of COVID-19. Also recommended by the two organizations is the use of ivermectin in addition to vitamin-D in both the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.

“My colleagues and I are seeing first-hand how effective ivermectin has been in treating covid-19 patients and I am pleased that the Indian government has included it in this new guidance,” said Dr. Shashikanth Manikappa, a cardiac anesthetist and member of the BIRD panel. “I encourage every doctor and medical professional in India to follow these guidelines along with the protocols in our joint statement to end the suffering of Indian people.”

Based on data from medical trials that include a total of more than 2,900 patients the panel convened by E-BMC concluded that ivermectin is 68% effective in preventing death from COVID-19 and over 90% effective in preventing the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.

“We are pleased to see the Indian government recognize how effective ivermectin can be in preventing and treating COVID-19,” said Dr. Tess Lawrie, director of the Evidence-Based Medicine Consultancy. “It is troubling to think that there are still other medical authorities that are unable to look at the totality of the evidence and not see how ivermectin can end the human suffering all over the world now.”

Recently published peer-reviewed research that includes meta-analyses based on 18 randomized controlled trials, which is the preferred trial of the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. National Institutes of Health and the European Medicines Agency (EMA), found a large, statistically significant reduction in mortality, time to recovery and viral clearance in COVID-19 patients treated with ivermectin.

“We can no longer wait for the large, bureaucratic heath organizations like the WHO and EMA to get around to properly review the data on ivermectin, said Pierre Kory, M.P.A., MD, president and chief medical officer of the FLCCC. “I am glad the government of India has decided to act boldly and correctly in a time of crisis for the benefit of their people. I strongly encourage all governments and health authorities to follow their accurate interpretation of the science rather than the flawed opinion of those who only look at a limited amount of evidence with what appears to be a predetermined outcome.”

Now, the FLCCC’s new I-Mask+ Prophylaxis and Early At-Home Outpatient Treatment Protocol with Ivermectin has been released – and is a potential solution to the global pandemic.

MIAMI EDTECH HOSTS FIRST EVER VIRTUAL SUMMIT: LEVELING THE PLAYING FIELD IN EDUCATION

Join on May 15th, 2021 to Explore the Current and Future States of Equality in Education

The idea behind this gathering is to explore ways to collectively impact our biggest challenges in education by hearing from folks on the front lines and learning from each other.”

— Carlos Vasquez, Founder, President and CEO of Miami EdTech

MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, May 5, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Saturday, May 15th from Noon to 3:00 PM EDT, Miami EdTech will host a series of fireside chats and workshops to explore opportunities for students, teachers, and ALL stakeholders in education to learn about current initiatives and future opportunities to ensure a Level Playing Field in Education. Keynote Speaker Ricky Williams spent 11 seasons in the NFL after winning the Heisman Trophy as a student at the University of Texas. As CEO of a tech company, Ricky will share his entrepreneurial journey and experience transitioning from the football field into the world of computing and entrepreneurship.

2021 marks the 67th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education ruling which promised integrated and equitable schools. The decision on May 17th, 1954 fueled a wave of efforts and actions leading to civil rights legislation in the late 1950s and 1960s. But many argue that the ruling was unsuccessful in its purported mission—to undo the school segregation that persists as a central feature of American public education today. Without a strategic plan to execute on, the initial school integration gains following the ruling stalled, and we continue to see a racially and socioeconomically isolated society than at any time since.

Today, the debate continues over how to combat racial inequalities in the nation’s school system, largely based on residential patterns and differences in resources between schools in wealthier and economically disadvantaged districts across the country. Racial achievement gaps remain huge. Expensive but necessary resources include high-quality early childhood programs, from birth to school entry; high-quality after-school and summer programs; full-service school health clinics; more skilled teachers; and smaller classes.

Speakers include: Carlos Vazquez, Justin Pinn, David Frederick, Dr. Kilan Bishop, Erika Burt, Emmanuel Miot, Steven Rodriguez, Evan Leaphart, Nitiya Walker, Chloe Medina, Gabriela Martinez, Dabensky Larose, Jorge Valenzuela, Evelina Galang, Ricky Williams.
