What is more important? —

1. To return the name of a mountain to its original, legally certified name or

2. To help thousands of men, women and children as their villages wash out to sea nearby?

By the year 2025, when two aerospace projects plan to be running on Mars, the US Army Corps of Engineers says that the native village of Kivalina and a string of other Athabaskan villages along the North Shore of Alaska will have submerged. A few are already gone in 2015.

Many have no running water, no toilets, and no cemeteries (they washed out to sea). The people need help moving.

However, Ohio legislators fight with President Obama for taking away the illegally-bestowed name of “Mount McKinley”, named in tribute to the man when he was the Republican candidate for POTUS, by a gold hunter in 1896.

The ancestors of the people whose villages are washing away in storms and erosion named the mountain thousands of years ago and the State of Alaska agency in charge of these names legally accepted it long ago.

So, what is more important – a Republican name on a mountain, or helping the homeless families, including infants and children?

How will fast food as an industry handle the increase to a $15.00 per hour Federal Minimum Wage?

First off, many will simply close down. Others will limit their menus, offer additional or longer periods of Drive-Thru times and close the dining room early or go to All-Drive-Thru service. and some will raise menu prices too high.

McDonald’s has found that tactics that helped them absorb the 2009 Federal Minimum Wage Increase are not working now. Because of this, the company allegedly plans to eliminate part of its human crew members with robots – but, this is really still a rumor. Those few remaining humans would  be robotics technicians and that is a good thing, since that work requires more skills and a higher salary to go with them.

Will a Phoenix Arizona McDonald’s go all-robot soon? Probably not, but it’s fun to think about. After all, sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke was the first to think up communications satellites (ComSats) and we have them all over the near-Earth cosmos now!

US National Book Festival, Historic Words And Reading Education

From Native American poetry to Classics, songs, and graphic novels, how can we not be proud of America’s literary development? Come celebrate literacy and literature of all sorts in DC this September 5, 2015 from 9am – 10 pm. Free admission!

This year’s festival is a tribute to the 200th Anniversary of Thomas Jefferson’s donation of all of his personal papers and books for the Thomas Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress.  During the War of 1912 – 1814, the British burned 3,000 books belonging to the US Congress and took 10,000 American military and civilians captive, jailing them at Dartmoor prison in England. it was a horrible time.

Thomas Jefferson offered his personal library to replace those burned volumes, but it took us until 1815 – a full year after the war was over – to gain the release of all of our prisoners. Today, the British and filks all over the UK came to our National Book festival to speak, to sign books, and to visit the kiosks.

Times change, but books are always good.

Today, you may need to move to a different state in order to earn a livable wage. Luckily, America has several states that are good for your move.

At least 10 states have low unemployment rates, which usually means that they have not enough workers to fill advertised positions. They need more people to come into their cities to work.

Another several states are low in job competition, meaning that not so many are fighting for the same job there.

If you would like to move to another US State or from Canada to America, you may like the extensive information on how to begin and how to succeed at your quest, all presented at:

A long time women’s health agency may be preventing the creation of new Health and Medical jobs in the Obstetrics and Transplantation fields by handing over aborted fetal tissues and organs to researchers and people in the market for new human parts.

This is still an allegation at this point, but a possibility.

Another possibility is that PP will be defunded and all those jobs will be lost.

How many jobs might be lost to such an alleged undercover system? — Likely thousands of positions that America needs for its job seekers from health aides through nurses, med techs, nurse practitioners and physicians.

During July 2015, international media news and two undercover YouTube videos of a tipsy PP Executive declaring she wants a high-priced sports car alleged that Planned Parenthood sells aborted tissues and organs. People at the agency insist that they charge only transportation costs. Some reporters called for an audit of the standard price schedules of that transportation and a match of them to PP’s accounts receivables numbers.

Will the figures match and what about back door sales, those sales not recorded and “off the books?”

We’re not accusing Planned Parenthood of larceny, but the public is demanding to know. PP should willingly submit to an external audit and an investigation that looks for off the record transactions.

A second part of the allegation is that illegal partial birth abortions are used to obtain whole organs rather than destroyed organs for sale and this is unacceptable.

A thorough investigation is necessary, although undercover videos0 are demoralizing, especially the PP Executive under the influence, even if comments may be out of context or perhaps a bad joke.

Look for more conjecture in the build up to Election 2016.

A lot of news lately speaks to the problem of torture and illegal interrogation techniques and it brings back memories!

It all causes me to recall that several years ago I was a manager for a company that locked each of its managers into a close-like small room alone, and then for an hour, attempted to interrogate each one of us illegally.

What would you do if this happened to you??

Here’s some background on the problem of illegal interrogations (at the link) and a narrative about how we handled being locked into a veritable closet by our boss. Creepy!

Thanks and have a pleasant day!

The world of psychology is in upheaval since in July 2015, it was revealed via international news that the American Psychological Association may have been complicit with torture used in interrogations at places such as Abu Graib. How will this affect the mental health industry in the future? First, APA immediately notified all members what had happened, as revealed in depth in an analysis known at the Hoffman report. Several top office holders in APA retired early or stepped down from their positions and an internal investigation and house straightening began. I commend the APA leadership for tackling the situation immediately. I respect the organization, especially for developing several divisions within its working to advocate and support any and all who have been marginalized, abused, and yes, even tortured in the past. APA seems always to take immediate action to right wrongs. Back in 1947 under the APA Presidency of Carl Rogers, The Ohio State University psychology department temporarily lost accreditation for irregularities in research conduct. The university department readily earned back its accreditation. APA was fast to right the problem. Current problems include a holdover of abuse and marginalization of women and minorities of several types and APA will advocate until these situations end. Psychology is still a magnificent field to enter and I hope current news stories about interrogation terrors will not harm the field. No organization or country can watch all its members all the time, though Heaven knows, some try. When a problem emerges and an organization takes care of it, give them some respect. Thanks, and happy job seeking!
