first_imgAt least six prisoners are now on hunger strike in Wisconsin at Columbia, Green Bay and Waupun maximum security prisons. Some began their strike on June 5, others on June 10. They are protesting the extreme torture of solitary confinement to which they have been subjected. Some have been held for years in isolation, a practice condemned by the United Nations and international human rights organizations.LaRon McKinley BeyPrison authorities are now force feeding three of them: Norman Green, LaRon McKinley Bey and Cesar DeLeon. DeLeon, incarcerated at Waupun, said in a June 22 letter: “We are still on food refusal strike. Because I refused to drink the water until they give me clean water while on strike, the prison doctor exaggerated his medical assessment of me and got Judge Steven G. Bauer from Dodge County to sign a temporary court order to force tube-feed me. They started on Friday. It’s three times a day. Both of my nostrils are injured from the tube. I been spitting blood. My nostrils are so swelled from tube-feeding that I can’t even breath through them.”The striking prisoners are asking supporters to call Brian Foster, Waupun Prison warden, at 920-324-5571. Also, call Jon Litscher, secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Corrections at 608-240-5000 or email him at [email protected] Tell them to agree to the prisoners’ demands to end this torture.Prisoners’ supporters are organizing a statewide protest rally and vigil on July 2 at the DOC in Madison at 2 p.m. Among other organizations, the WISDOM Network, Ex-Prisoners Organizing, Wisconsin Bail Out the People Movement, Workers World Party and Milwaukee Industrial Workers of the World are backing the strikers.

first_imgÁngeles Maestro, spokesperson for the organization Red Roja (Red Network) in Spain, sent the following message to the Russian organization Red Spring. It salutes May 9, the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Berlin from the Nazis by the Soviet Red Army and the end of World War II in Europe. Translation by John Catalinotto.Soldiers hoist the Red Flag over the Reichstag, the German parliament building, as the USSR’s Red Army takes Berlin in May 1945 as the final step in total victory over Nazi Germany. Credit: Yevgeny KhaldeiThe entry of the Red Army into Berlin, fixed in memory by the dramatic image of the soldier hanging the Red Flag from the Reichstag, marked not only the end of World War II, but provided a powerful portrait of just what made up the decisive forces capable of defeating the Nazi monster that capitalism in crisis had engendered.The devastating experience of the German invasion, together with the vivid memory of the October Revolution and the subsequent victory over all international reaction, allowed the Soviet people to understand exactly what the dilemma formulated by Rosa Luxemburg, “Socialism or Barbarism,” entails and to what extent the defense of life and the struggle for socialism are one and the same thing. This is how the most heroic feat of all time was born.Another image intimately linked with the Reichstag seizure, one less known and even obscured, has the same roots. It occurred in the Mauthausen extermination camp [Linz, Austria], in June 1941, that is, a few days after the Nazi attack on the USSR. There seemed to be no room for any future. Despite the obstacles, Spanish communists imprisoned in that camp set up a clandestine organization. At night, stripped naked, taking advantage of the fact that they were gathered in the patio for a disinfection, in the place programmed to annihilate all hope, they took the first decisions to create the structure that four years later would allow the prisoners themselves to liberate the camp.  ( is this unwavering will to fight and hope, together with the assumption of responsibility by each individual in the collective task of preparing for the birth of a new society, a task that places the development of all the capacities of all human beings as a central objective, that made the victory of the USSR possible, as well as so many hidden feats like that of liberating Mauthausen.Today, in the impoverished hospitals, the sick are crowded together because they lack the resources that have been gobbled up by private capital. Today, millions of people have lost their jobs. Today, the vitality, intelligence and creativity of those who do not have the resources to develop them are being squandered. Today, in these difficult times, the Red Flag on the Reichstag is the most conspicuous affirmation of hope for the future.The infection is caused by the coronavirus, but the epidemic is capitalism.Some revolutionary processes have strayed from their initial objectives for different reasons, but they did not die. They remain in the memory and in the heart of their people and of all the oppressed of the world. And most important of all, these are not permanent defeats, but temporary failed attempts on the inevitable road of defeating capitalist barbarism and lighting the path to the true history of humanity.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgHome Market Corn Production Down, Prices Raised in USDA Report By Gary Truitt – Jul 10, 2015 Corn Production Down, Prices Raised in USDA Report SHARE Facebook Twitter Projected 2015/16 U.S. feed grain supplies are lowered this month with reductions in corn beginning stocks and production.  Corn beginning stocks for 2015/16 are down 97 million bushels as increases in 2014/15 feed and residual use, use in ethanol production, and exports more than offset a small increase in imports.  Corn production for 2015/16 is projected down 100 million bushels reflecting the lower planted and harvested areas from the June 30 Acreage.  Sorghum, barley, and oats production are forecast higher based on the higher areas reported for all threeProjected 2015/16 U.S. corn use is lowered with reductions for feed and residual use and exports more than offsetting higher expected corn use in ethanol production.  Projected feed and residual use is reduced 25 million bushels with lower production, higher expected supplies of distillers’ grains, and the higher price outlook.  Exports are lowered 25 million bushels with increased competition expected from larger supplies in Brazil.  Use for ethanol is raised 25 million bushels with higher forecasts for 2015 and 2016 gasoline consumption in the latest outlook from the Energy Information Administration.  The higher gasoline consumption outlook also boosts expected 2014/15 corn use for ethanol by 25 million bushels.  This month’s higher projections for 2014/15 corn feed and residual use and exports reflect the latest indications of disappearance from the June 1 stocks estimate and reported export shipments and sales to date. Other important 2015/16 feed grain changes include higher projected sorghum use, particularly for exports, and higher projected feed and residual use for sorghum and barley.  Ending stocks for sorghum, barley, and oats are all projected higher reflecting larger crops and supplies this month.Corn ending stocks for 2015/16 are projected 172 million bushels lower.  Projected season-average prices received by producers for 2015/16 are higher for all the feed grains with corn up 25 cents to $3.45 to $4.05 per bushel.  This is up 5 cents per bushel, at the midpoint, from this month’s higher forecast for 2014/15.  At $3.60 to $3.80 per bushel, the 2014/15 corn price range is raised 5 cents on both ends.Global coarse grain supplies for 2015/16 are projected down 4.3 million tons with much of the reduction from lower corn beginning stocks in the United States.  Foreign coarse grain beginning stocks are also lower with Brazil corn stocks down 1.5 million tons.  Brazil corn exports for 2014/15 are increased, outpacing this month’s increase in 2014/15 production.  Globally, corn production for 2015/16 is lowered 2.2 million tons with reductions in the United States and EU only partly offset by increases for Brazil and China.  EU corn production is lowered 2.4 million tons as recent excessive heat and developing dryness across major growing areas reduces yield prospects.  Corn production is lowered 0.3 million tons for neighboring Serbia where heat and dryness are also concerns.  Brazil corn production is raised 2.0 million tons for 2015/16 with higher expected area for the crop that will be planted in the coming months.  China corn production is raised 1.0 million tons also on higher area.  Global barley and oats production for 2015/16 are lowered with reductions for EU and Canada.Global 2015/16 coarse grain consumption is raised 0.9 million tons, partly reflecting higher expected sorghum feeding and imports for China with the larger U.S. crop.  Corn feeding is raised for EU supported by larger imports as domestic grain supplies decline.  World barley consumption is lowered with reductions for EU, Australia, and Canada on tighter global supplies.  Brazil corn exports are raised for 2014/15 and 2015/16, up 2.5 million tons and 1.0 million tons, respectively.  EU corn imports are raised in both years.  Global 2015/16 corn ending stocks are projected 5.2 million tons lower mostly on the reduction expected for the United States.  Corn ending stocks are also expected lower for EU and Brazil.

But Beall was facing a difficult challenge. She had to stay strong enough to undergo a transplant if an organ match could be found for her liver.As she waited, her chance of survival lessened.“I wanted to live but, I knew for me to live, someone had to die,” she said. “I was scared but I never felt alone.”Lying there surrounded by hospital sounds and knowing that her life was slowly slipping away, Beall said, if it came to that, she didn’t know how to say good-bye.”Beall remembers knowing that she dying. She remembers her mom being there with her. And, she remembers the doctor telling her mom that she was going to die.“The doctor told Mom that my children should be allowed to come so I could say ‘goodbye’ to them,” Beall said. “Mom was sitting at the end of the bed with her feet up and eating a bowl of ice cream. She looked out the window and said calmly, ‘No.’”The doctor thought she didn’t understand or could not comprehend.“No,” she said. “We’re not going to do that and kept eating ice cream.”Again, Troy’s First Lady was told she was going to lose her daughter. Again, she said, “no.”“Mom said, I was going to live,” Beall said. “She said, we were going to pray for a miracle and we were going to believe it. We were going to stand on it.”Somewhere on a city street, a man stuck a needle in his arm.Because someone, unknown then and now, made a decision for a man’s organs to be donated, Katie Hawkins Beall was given life.The saddest day of that man’s life was the greatest day for Katie Hawkins Beall and her family. She prayed for his family; she prayed for them to have the comfort of God’s love.On November 14, 2017, Beall woke up from organ transplant surgery feeling like she had been sliced in half.“But I woke up,” she said with a smile.Six days later, Katie Hawkins Beall went home for Thanksgiving. 12PrevNextStartStop Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day “One donor can save up to eight lives,” Beall said. “Eighteen people die each day awaiting an organ and 120,000 people are now awaiting life-saving organ transplants.”Beall knows what it’s like to be one who is awaiting a life-saving transplant. She knows what it’s like to be dying and to know that, to live, someone else has to die.For Beall it all happened so quickly.She had not been feeling well and was actually on a field trip with her daughter when she became violently ill. In a short time, the virus had invaded her entire body and she was given a narrow chance of survival. That narrow chance became almost no chance as her heart, kidneys and liver began to fail. “I don’t know who the young man was,” Beall said. “I do know that he put a needle in his arm and never knew anything else. I choose to believe he was a good man who happened to make bad decisions.”Beall has not heard from the family of the man who, in death, saved her life. “I would like to be a part of his family because he is now a part of me,” she said.Beall is the daughter of Troy University Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins and First Lady Janice Hawkins. She came home to Troy to talk with students at her alma maters, Troy University and Charles Henderson High School, and community members about the importance of being an organ donor, about the lives that are saved by organ donors and about those who die waiting because no matches could be found.

first_img Comments are closed. Seniormanagers can benefit from both internal and external advice, by Julian AvissSenior managers and high-fliers often want specific help on certain issues.Rather than opening themselves up in front of a group of peers, many find itsafer to talk these issues through with a coach whom they respect and trust.Often the coach is either an internal HR practitioner or an externalspecialist. But there is no reason why senior managers cannot have both. The escalating interest in executive coaching provides a real opportunityfor HR practitioners to extend their sphere of influence. Those in HR arealready well placed to provide an internal coaching role, offering seniormanagers a different perspective, challenging them and encouraging them toconfront the performance issues they need to address. Such a relationship can be informal. It does not necessarily need a specific”contract” covering issues such as where to meet, how often, for howlong or prior agreement on the specific focus and goals of each session. Senior managers generally want more than an internal sounding board who is a”good egg” and can empathise. They want someone credible, withexperience and an understanding of the business who can give praise andpositive feedback and also add value. If you are a trusted, respected individual who can listen and steer people’sthoughts about their own performance, you can enhance your internal profile byfostering these ad hoc relationships. However, if the person being coached isto benefit, you must realise your own limitations. Roffey Park is publishing a management discussion paper this week whichidentifies the key aspects of corporate coaching and describes the process as acontroversial meld of consultancy and psychotherapy. Certainly, coaching crosses the boundaries between counselling andmentoring. It is important to know which role an HR professional is providing.For example, if personal issues are being introduced, there is a real dangerthat you may – if you are not a trained counsellor – enter territories beyondyour expertise. It takes a high level of self-awareness to recognise that your manager maybenefit from an external perspective. It takes an even greater amount ofself-confidence to advise the person being coached that someone else may bebetter suited to helping them with these issues. Such honesty may come as a relief. If it involves a senior person who needsto come to terms with issues relating to their own behaviour, self-confidenceor self-esteem – or improve their management of personal relation- ships atwork – they may prefer to talk to someone who is perceived as more impartial. By recommending that the high-flier also gains an external perspective, youare not severing your relationship. It is possible to create a coachingtriumvirate, working in partnership with an external coach to provide acost-effective and timely solution to the coachee’s needs. HR practitioners must overcome any insecurities when working in conjunctionwith an external specialist. The internal and external coaches must trust eachother and ensure they are working to the same agenda. The external coach needs to be clear about what development interventionsare available internally. He or she may also need a knowledge of the internalrelationships to know which issues would be better addressed by the internalcoach. As with any coaching relationship, the coaches must aim for the employee tobecome independent, so the issues of dependency and closure must be clarifiedat the outset. With the right blend of individuals and firmly established boundaries, atriumvirate app-roach to executive coaching can be a most effective way to helpsenior managers further improve their performance at work. Julian Aviss is director of in-company development and consultancyservices at Roffey Park.
