Kate Magdalena's "Streets of Any Town" Highlights Nation's Homeless Crisis

Resurrecting the Protest Song: for Men and Women on the Streets of America

On a corner of the streets of any town, there's a man who life forgot; he's going down.”

— Kate Magdalena

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, UNITED STATES, July 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — San Francisco recording artist and singer-songwriter Kate Magdalena wrote her new song "Streets of Any Town" in response to a conversation with a homeless man on Nashville’s busy honky-tonk music street, Broadway. The song is this man’s story, but it is also the larger story of men and women across America who live on the streets because they have been forced there for economic and social reasons. The song asks the question: is it really okay in the United States of America to allow people to live on the street? The song also packs a religious punch with its refrain “the least of you”, recalling Jesus’ words from Matthew 25:45 —- ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

The song is the fourth track from Kate's upcoming album "A Larger Dance" coming in October, and available for pre-order next month. She has also released "Take Me to Church" by Irish singer Sinead O'Connor, "Be the Lark" a song addressing issues of loss and "Battle Hymn of the Republic" timed for July 4th. These songs have been recorded and produced by GRAMMY-nominated-producer Billy Smiley (Johnny Cash, Whiteheart, Clay Aiken, and the Newsboys) and feature some of Nashville's finest musicians with Fred Eltringham (The Wallflowers and Sheryl Crow), Byron House (Robert Plant and the Band of Joy), Blair Masters (Garth Brooks) and Brennan Smiley (The Technicolors).

"Streets of Any Town" will be playing on local country radio stations across America, promoted by Grassroots Promotion, out of Nashville. Kate hopes that the song, and its accompanying music video may be of use to any individual or agency working with issues of homelessness.

ABOUT KATE MAGDALENA:
For Kate, singing is a way to bring what is inside, outside. It is to make the invisible audible. Kate has an ability to move her listeners with her voice, to bring pleasure and joy. Kate was raised in an era in which people looked to the arts and music to inspire social activism. Like Dylan’s great songs, Kate's music addresses some of the pressing issues of our own day. Kate is pursuing her music career now, after a career as a teacher and chaplain. She hopes that in pursuing her own dream later in life, that she might inspire others to believe in their own cherished dreams.

UN Special Rapporteur Clément Nyaletsossi Voule Urged to Visit Kanniya & Neeraviyadi during his visit to Sri Lanka: TGTE

The landowner of the Kanniya Hindu Temple Ms. Kokilaramani and one leader Mr. Akarthiyar were assaulted by Sinhalese traders who splashed them with hot tea.

By visiting these two places you can get first-hand information on restriction on the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association in Sri Lanka”

— Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE)

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Today the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) urged visiting UN Special Rapporteur, Clément Nyaletsossi Voule, to visit Kanniya in the Trincomale District where peaceful protests against the destruction of an ancient Hindu Temple is being blocked by Sri Lankan Security Forces.

He was also urged to visit Neeraviyadi in the Mullaitivu district, where the peaceful assembly of Hindus in a Temple is being harassed by the Security forces.

“By visiting these two places, you can get first-hand information on the restriction on the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and association in Sri Lanka” said TGTE.

Hundreds of Tamils from across the North-East travelled to Kanniya in the Trincomalee area to protest the destruction of a Hindu temple to make way for a Buddhist Temple. Several protesters were obstructed and blocked en route by the Sri Lankan army and police, while some were assaulted by the Sinhalese as security forces watched on.

The Tamil crowds pleaded with police to allow them to enter the Hindu Temple to worship, however, since they were still being blocked, protesters carried out their prayers on the main road where they were stationed.

Protesters who travelled to the area from Jaffna and Mullaitivu had their vehicles and bodies subjected to intense searches by the army and police. One group accused Sri Lankan army personnel of deliberately puncturing the tire on their bus while they had been stopped for checking.

The landowner of the Kanniya Hindu Temple Ms. Kokilaramani and one leader Mr. Akarthiyar were assaulted by Sinhalese traders who splashed them with hot tea.

Mr. Voule will be visiting from July 18th to 26th and will be traveling to various parts of the island.
The Special Rapporteur is to hold a press conference on the 26th of July, upon the conclusion of his visit. He will present a comprehensive report on his visit to the 44th session of the Human Rights Council in June 2020.

CCHR Says Minority Mental Health Month May Spell Mental Health Slavery

CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections.

CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections.

Rev. Fred Shaw wants to protect fellow African Americans from Psychotropic Drug Dangers

Being oppressed and subjected to racism is a human rights abuse, not a ‘mental disorder.’”

— Rev. Fred Shaw

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — While July is recognized as Minority Mental Health Month, Rev. Frederick Shaw, spokesperson for the Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (CCHR) warns that it can be used to stigmatize African Americans and put them at risk of harm from psychiatric treatments prescribed them. Rev. Shaw, who is also the Executive Director of the Inglewood-South Bay branch of the NAACP said that Minority Mental Health Month was started with good intentions by author, the late Bebe Moore Campbell, but it’s been used to target African Americans, Hispanics and others, getting them, hooked on damaging psychotropic drugs and even electroshocked. (Click here to sign CCHR’s Petition to Ban ECT.)

Two patient “advocacy” groups are proponents of the month, yet both have come under Congressional investigation for their financial links to pharmaceutical companies that manufacture psychiatric drugs. Between them they have accrued nearly $50 million from companies that manufacture these drugs. [1]

Rev. Shaw said the pharmaceutical interests alone should beg questions about the veracity of a program that claims 20% of African Americans are more likely to experience serious mental health problems than the general population. [2] He stated: “Being oppressed and subjected to racism is a human rights abuse, not a ‘mental disorder.’ Claiming this requires treatment—mind-altering antidepressants, antipsychotics, and brain-damaging electroshock—is mind slavery. These so-called treatments physically and mentally incapacitate people.”

Professor Herb Kutchins co-author Making Us Crazy – DSM: The Psychiatric Bible and the Creation of Mental Disorders said: “Defenders of slavery, proponents of racial segregation…have consistently attempted to justify oppression by inventing new mental illnesses and by reporting higher rates of abnormality among African-Americans or other minorities.” [3]

Dr. Rick Wallace, Ph.D. also says that “mental illness diagnosis is highly subjective” and is “far from an exact science. Modern psychiatry has expanded its reach to the point that even the most normal of emotions and mental states are now labeled as one ‘disorder’ or another.” [4]

African American men have been labeled with schizophrenia at a rate at least five times higher than other groups. [5] African Americans are also targeted for learning disorder labeling. Dr. Wallace called this, “The Black Academic Holocaust,” stating: “Not only is there an issue with young black students being disproportionately diagnosed with learning disorders, but they are also being prescribed psychotropic drugs at an alarming rate — with some being prescribed these medications as early as at the age of 18 months.” [6]

A study also determined that African American children prescribed antipsychotics were nearly four times at greater risk of suffering Tardive Dyskinesia—irreversible damage to the nervous system—than European-American children prescribed them. [7]

Antipsychotics side effects include heart problems, blood disorders, emotional effects (excitable, agitated, aggressive, depressed, out of touch with reality, socially withdrawn), liver disorders, sexual problems, suicidal feelings and behavior, weight gain, and a life-threatening neurological disorder. [8]

Shaw says Mental Health Month should be a warning and highlight the history of betrayal of African Americans when offered “help” in the name of mental health care.

• In 1792, the “father of American psychiatry,” psychiatrist Benjamin Rush, declared that Blacks suffered from a disease called Negritude. The “cure” was when their skin turned “white.” Like lepers, Rush said, they needed to be segregated for their own good and to prevent their “infecting” others. [9]

• African Americans were diagnosed with Drapetomania (drapetes, runaway slave, and mania, meaning crazy) and Dyasethesia Aethiopis (laziness and impaired sensation). Drapetomania gave Blacks the “uncontrollable urge” to run away from their “masters.” The “treatment” was “whipping the devil out of them.” [10]

• 1960s: Psychiatrists claimed civil rights protests caused violent “schizophrenic” symptoms in “Negro populations,” calling this “protest psychosis.” Black men were accused of “hostile and aggressive feelings” and “delusional anti-whiteness after listening to civil rights leaders.” [11] Ads for antipsychotics used African symbols to reflect so-called “violent traits” in Blacks. [12]

• 1970s: Psychiatrist Louis West, a Central Intelligence Agency-funded psychiatrist, made plans for a program to conduct genetic and biochemical studies to "predict the probability of occurrences" of violent behavior in young, black urban males. [13]

• 1990s: NIMH director, psychiatrist Frederic Goodwin, compared inner city youth (mostly black or Hispanic) with "hyperaggressive" and "hypersexual" monkeys in a jungle. [14] Goodwin approved funding for a “Violence Initiative” aimed at identifying violent inner-city children, some as young as five, that would need “psychiatric intervention,” which included Prozac or other antidepressants. [15] Yet, “The link between antidepressants and violence, including suicide and homicide, is well established,” stated Patrick D. Hahn, affiliate professor of Biology at Loyola University, Maryland [16]

Rev. Shaw says that “after hundreds of years of oppression, psychiatrists have re-defined this abuse as African Americans being prone to violence and then prescribing them drugs to ‘help,’ yet they create the violence and psychosis we are accused of.” He recommends anyone who has been abused in the mental health system to contact CCHR.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org

Gift of Sight to Low-Income Families and Individuals Graciously Provided by Amy Bishop, Optometrist

CHILDRESS, TEXAS, USA, July 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Amy Bishop, Optometrist, created the nonprofit organization Free 2 See to offer free eye exams and glasses to those in need. Amy Bishop, Optometrist in Childress, Texas, said this cause is important to her after 25 years in private practice.

“In my decades as an optometrist, I have seen many people who do not have insurance and find it difficult or impossible to afford regular eye exams and the glasses they need,” said Amy Bishop, Optometrist. Even those with diabetes, glaucoma or who are taking high-risk medications can qualify for free services with the Free 2 See program, she said. Reports are provided to your physician if you fall under one of those categories.

The comprehensive exams provided by Amy Bishop, Optometrist utilize the latest technology, such as panoramic retinal imaging and prescription eyewear.

Amy Bishop, Optometrist also works closely with area schools to provide for children there who do not have funds available to them to have proper eye care. It is not only children who are able to benefit from Free 2 See, however. Senior citizens are often in need of these services since they are unable to purchase new eyeglasses to accommodate their changes in vision, said Amy Bishop, Optometrist.

Amy Bishop, Optometrist said creating Free 2 See has been enormously fulfilling. “It is heartwarming to give back to the community in this way,” she said. “Having proper eye care and a correct prescription is vital, whether or not someone has insurance or available funds.” She feels grateful to be able to provide them with free care in this way.

Currently, Amy Bishop’s Optometrist office Family Eye Care in Childress, Texas, donates 10 to 15 pairs of glasses a month to those in need. However, this number may increase as the need arises.

Amy Bishop, Optometrist practices at Family Eye Care in Childress. She provides exams, diagnoses and treats all disorders that affect the eyes or vision. She also works to keep up on the latest advances in eye health and vision care. She attends regular continuing education seminars and advanced training courses, dedicating herself to ensuring her patients receive the most modern, progressive vision care possible.

To learn more about Free 2 See, visit free2see.com or call 940-937-2015 for an appointment and to find out if you qualify for free eye care.

A Q&A Interview with Famed Criminal Attorney Vince Imhoff

Vince Imhoff, Famed Criminal Attorney

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, July 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Q: Vince, it’s great talking to you. How long have you been an attorney?

A: It’s a pleasure speaking with you as well. Currently 30 years.

Q: I wanted to start by asking what personality traits you think make a great attorney? What separates the great ones from the rest?

A: I believe it is a caring for your client’s case. How much it impacts you emotionally, and how that impact causes you to solve those issues. That’s what really matters. Even more so than the economic impact.

Q: So, great attorneys seem to have the ability to adopt the client as some of themselves?

A: Yes. There’s an empathy that happens that’s much different than the empathy you have when meeting people on the street. It makes all the difference.

Q: Is that something that can be taught? Or is it already embedded in a human?

A: I think that yes, empathy can be taught. However, it also has to be there in the first place, and you have to have a natural feel for it. After that, the more you do it the more impactful you realize it is, and how successful you can become with it. It’s basically like practicing any other skill.

Q: Vince, you have had a 30-year career as a prominent attorney. In what ways has the legal world changed today as opposed to 30 years ago?

A: I think it reflects society in that it is a little “meaner.” Now, everything is more about “Me,” and people seem to be more in their own bubble. It creates a real “Us vs Them” philosophy.

Q: So, technology has been an enemy of civility?

A: You could say that, yes. I think so.

Q: You run a law firm. What is it you do that has helped you prosper in that aspect?

A: We talk to everyone on our team about empathy. What it means to them and how they can use it while working. We make sure that everyone is on the same page.

Q: You have an economic practice that might be considered unusual. Most law firms are compensated by the hour, correct?

A: Yes.

Q: And you don’t. You charge the fee for the entire case, no matter where it takes you. Is that true? Were you a pioneer in coming up with that method?

A: Yes, it’s true, but the process has been around a while in criminal sentence work. It happens because clients don’t have the resources to go back over and over to solve their issues. So, making them an hourly client would disadvantage them. Our method caps their expenses so they know exactly how much it will cost. It reduces much of their anxiety as well as our own.

Q: How important is that flat-fee logic to the success of your firm?

A: I think it’s very important in that it allows us to focus on our client without having to focus both on the clock and the pay, while other attorneys might.

Q: If somebody has been charged with a crime, regardless of what it is, what is your single piece of advice for someone in that situation?

A: My most important advice is to say “shush.” The more silence the better. You don’t want to give away your whole case before it even starts.

Q: Thank you so much for that. It was great talking to you today, Vince.

A: No problem at all. Cheers.

இலங்கைத்தீவில் சிறிலங்கா ஆட்சியாளர்களினால், சிங்கள அரசினால் தமிழர்கள் மீது நடத்தப்பட்ட கறுப்பு யூலை – 1983 தமிழினப்படுகொலை நடைபெற்று 36 ஆண்டுகள் தொட்டு விட்டன.

காலம் பல கடந்து சென்றாலும் ஈழத் தமிழர் தேசத்தின் அரசியல் ஆன்மாவில் ஓர் பெரும் துயர வடுவாக நிலைத்திருப்பதோடு, என்ன விலை கொடுத்தேனும் அரசியல் சுதந்திரத்தை அடைந்தே தீர வேண்டும் என்ற பற்றுறுதியை தமிழர் தேசத்திடம் கறுப்பு யூலை நினைவுகள் விதைத்திருக்கின்றன.

கறுப்பு யூலை என்பது இரு இனங்களுக்கிடையே நடந்த ஒரு கலவரம் அல்ல. அது ஒரு இனத்தின் மீது இன்னொரு இனத்தின் அரசினால் திட்டமிட்டு நடத்தப்பட்ட இனப்படுகொலையாகும்.

1983 கறுப்பு யூலை இனப்படுகொலை ஈழத்தமிழர்களுக்கு ஒரு செய்தியைத் தெளிவாகச் சொல்லியிருக்கிறது. இரத்தம் தோய்ந்த சிங்கள பௌத்த இன மேலாதிக்க அரசிடமிருந்து பிரிந்து சென்று சுதந்திர அரசை அமையுங்கள் என்பதுதான் அந்தச் செய்தி நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம் அழைப்பு விடுத்துள்ளது.
