2015: TEAM GMB SOUTH EAST/SOUTH SOUTH CAUCUS DECLARES FOR MUHAMMADU BUHARI BEING THE TEXT OF A PRESS CONFERENCE ADDRESSED BY THE SOUTH EAST/SOUTH SOUTH CAUCUS OF TEAM GENERAL MUHAMMADU BUHARI (TEAM GMB) IN PORTHARCOURT ON SATURDAY 27TH SEPTEMBER, 2014. History cannot be recovered, but history shows us the true path to follow. The departure from military rule on the 29th May 1999 ushered in a new hope for Nigeria, it brought about a ray of light for the common man…Restored the hopes of the forgotten middle class, down trodden and seek to reclaim the future for our children. 15 years after a supposed new beginning was ushered to the Nigerian people, everything we believe in, everything we’ve fought for, is threatened by a treasury witch hunters who does not understand its responsibility to the people. A mean spirited party that trivializes corruption pauperizes the essence of leadership – I know that I am not alone in this concern today. After 15 years; our very confidence has turned its back on us by ...

Social work grew out of humanitarian and democratic ideals, and its values are based on respect for the equality, worth, and dignity of all people. Since its beginnings over a century ago, social work practice has focused on meeting human needs and developing human potential. Human rights and social justice serve as the motivation and justification for social work action. In solidarity with those who are disadvantaged, the profession strives to alleviate poverty and to liberate vulnerable and oppressed people in order to promote social inclusion. Social work profession addresses the barriers, inequities and injustices that exist in society. Its mission is to help people to develop their full potential, enrich their lives, and prevent dysfunction. Professional social work is focused on problem solving and change. As such, social workers are change agents in society and in the lives of the individuals, families and communities they serve. It responds to crises and emergencies as well as to everyday personal ...

HOUSING VIDEO RELEASED TODAY The Salvation Army today releases the first in a series of voter videos entitled “Make Your Vote Count”, aimed at helping people understand more about key social issues before they vote in the General Election. “Dealing with poverty, abuse and unfairness in New Zealand needs to be of central importance to all political parties and all voters,” says Major Campbell Roberts, Director of The Salvation Army’s Social Policy and Parliamentary Unit. The first voter video will be launched at an election debate in Papakura tonight focused on housing policy. Participants include sitting MP Judith Collins and other Papakura electorate candidates. The remaining videos will be launched at similar debates during the week; keeping communities safe from social hazards, in Flaxmere; work and income for all, in Christchurch; caring for all children, in Lower Hutt; and reforming crime and punishment, in Henderson. “The vulnerable and low-income New Zealanders that The Salvation Army w ...

Interesting analysis of UKIP voters by YouGov: Some 87 per cent of Ukip voters feel that "politicians don't listen to the likes of me", compared with 55 per cent of Conservative voters, 77 per cent of Labour voters, 64 per cent of Liberal Democrat voters and 78 per cent of Green party voters. The survey also found that slightly over 80% of UKIP voters believed that life was better 30 years ago than it is now, and as consistent with other polling, YouGov also found UKIP voters to veer to the right on Social Policy but very Left-Wing on economics- Some 85% of UKIPers want the railways to be nationalised, with around 70% saying that they wanted utilities to be taken into public ownership. UKIP voters also tend to be, on average, poorer than any other kind of voter. Definitely the disillusioned white working class.

Well worth a read esp for Social Policy students Inequality hurts everyone apart from the super-rich – and here's why The extraordinary success of Thomas Piketty's best-seller shows that progressive ideas are at last winning • o Chris Huhne o o The Guardian, Monday 28 April 2014 o Jump to comments (515) ‘Even the IMF suggests that rising inequality, far from being a price worth paying, actually slows down growth.' Illustration by Andrzej Krauze Ideas, as well as interests, matter in politics. They shape the debate and determine plausible policy prescriptions. From the 1970s onwards, the intellectual and political current has run strongly against equality. The Reagan-Thatcher consensus on low taxes, and their suspicion of redistribution, has been remarkably powerful. The Blair-Brown government had a lower top rate of income tax for all its 13 years than Thatcher did for nine. Greater inequality has often been seen as a price worth paying for economic gains. The intellectual tide may, however, be turn ...

I'm struggling to find any point in Mike Elrick's article* other than a feebly contrived and decidedly tacky attempt to drape the anti-independence campaign in some of the respect that John Smith still commands. Stealing the clothes off the corpse of a well-loved man is certainly not beneath the people who brought you Project Fear and what is fast developing into one of the nastiest propaganda campaigns since Dr Goebbels set the standard to which the dark arts operatives of the British state now aspire.   I'm uncomfortable even mentioning such things in the same breath as someone like John Smith. But Mike Elrick started it, so I feel obliged to point out that, if Smith was as aware of the democratic deficit as is claimed - which I have absolutely no reason to doubt - then, being an astute political observer and an honest man, he would surely acknowledge that devolution has signally failed to address the problem in the way that he hoped it might.   As an honourable man, John Smith would not have been bou ...

       When it comes to the world's maternity leaves report card, not all countries are passing with flying colours. In a report by the International Labour Organization (ILO), the majority of the United States (excluding two states) received a failing grade in providing women and new mothers support entering motherhood.        In at least 178 countries around the world, paid leave is guaranteed for working moms, while more than 50 countries provide wage benefits for fathers, according to the ILO. The United States, along with Papua New Guinea, Swaziland, Liberia and Lesotho are some of the only countries in the world that provide no type of financial support for mothers, according to a study done by McGill University’s Institute for Health and Social Policy.      Maternity leaves aren't simply a matter of time off for childcare -- they can also strongly impact the rest of a child's life. According to a report by non-governmental organization Save The Children, in countries with longer per ...
Asenati Lole-Taylor MP Spokesperson for Social Policy 18 December 2013 CHILD SUPPORT SCHEME DELAYS PENALISE FAMILIES New Zealand First has questioned the Government’s lack of preparation in implementing reforms to the Child Support Scheme Amendment Act. Inland Revenue informed the Government that more time is needed to implement the new scheme, which will not come into place until 1 April 2015 with remaining changes rolling out a year later. Social policy spokesperson Asenati Lole-Taylor says the Government needs to immediately address the on-going delays in the child support scheme as it would see many parents in shared care agreements penalised for a further 12 months. “This is the second time it has been delayed to enable the IRD enough time to implement the changes. “During the first stages of the select committee process the IRD was questioned if their technology and systems were competent enough to handle the reforms, so why has it taken the Government until now to realise they are not? “Wit ...
ERNESTO TALVI ;Nonresident Senior Fellow and Director, Brookings Global-CERES Economic and Social Policy in Latin America Initiative. Latin America, particularly countries such as Brazil and Argentina that are commodity-exporting and less dependent on the U.S. economic cycle, have had close to a decade of exceptional growth, doubling the region's long-run average. This period of exuberance was underpinned by sound macroeconomic policies, but largely propelled by cheap and abundant inflows of foreign capital and high commodity prices. High growth and active redistribution policies made possible by plentiful fiscal resources led to a 13 percentage point decline in poverty rates in Latin America, a 5 percentage point decline in extreme poverty rates, and the emergence of an incipient middle class. Since mid- to late 2011, however, Latin America's growth rates have cooled substantially as growth in important emerging economies lost steam (in particular, China's growth rate declined from previous skyrocketing ...
LIVING WAGE WEEK – A FLAWED IDEA This week has been the annual “Living Wage” week, when campaigners attempt to draw focus to the fact that millions of people are paid below what focus groups determine should be an acceptable wage to account for the basic cost of living in the UK, given the current tax and benefit structures. The Centre for Research in Social Policy (CRSP) at Loughborough University (for the UK, excluding London) and the Greater London Authority (for London) calculate family size-adjusted hourly wage rates that are necessary to cover “minimum living costs”, rent, council tax and childcare provision, such that someone working a 37.5 hour working week would be able to live comfortably. This year, given that the cost of living is currently rising faster than average earnings, the CRSP decided to limit the increase to reflect the ability of employers to pay the increased rate. The hourly wage rates suggested by the Living Wage Foundation to constitute the Living Wage for 2013 are the ...

£500 OVERALL BENEFIT CAP – IMPACT IN TOTTENHAM A TEST-BED FOR WELFARE REFORM A single mother living in Tottenham , who wants to be anonymous, with all the hard work of rearing seven children but not in paid work, has had her housing benefit reduced to 50 pence a week by the Government’s £500 overall benefit cap. Tottenham is in the Borough of Haringey, which is a test-bed for that cap. The 50 pence housing benefit will be swallowed by 20% of the council tax, or £5.10 a week on band C, imposed by the Haringey council. Her benefit income net of rent and council tax was £537.78 a week plus £245 housing benefit. The £500 cap with the council tax wipes out the housing benefit and leaves her with £277.68 to pay for food, fuel, clothing, transport and other necessities. Her income net of council tax and rent both before and after the £500 cap are far below the level needed for a minimum acceptable standard of living. Donald Hirsch, Director of the Centre for Research in Social Policy at Loughborough ...
There are 250,000 Muslims living in the San Francisco Bay Area, they are well-educated (with 75 percent having attended college), their median household income is $70,686 (slightly less than the average for the region), and more than 3 out of 5 Muslims volunteer their time, which is more than twice the rate of volunteering by all Bay Area residents. Those are some of the highlights of a groundbreaking study of Bay Area Muslims done by Zaytuna co-founder Dr. Hatem Bazian and Dr. Farid Senzai of the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU). “Over the past 30 years, the Bay Area in general, and the Muslim population in particular, has experienced significant growth brought on by the region’s economic transformation and the emergence of the information technology industry,” the authors state in the study. Credible information about American Muslims is sorely lacking and hampers a true understanding of the community and its increasing numbers in the country. Now, this benchmark study provides ...
Last October, at George Washington University, there was a meeting between DOJ officials, including Perez, and Islamist advocates against free speech. Representatives from the Islamist side included Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). The ISNA was an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding trial in 2008, as well as functioning as a Muslim Brotherhood Front. The leader of the Islamist attack was Sahar Aziz, an Egyptian-born American lawyer and Fellow at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, a Muslim advocacy group based in Michigan. At the meeting, the Islamists lobbied for: Cutbacks in U.S. anti-terror training Limits on the power of terrorism investigators Changes in agent training manuals A legal declaration that criticism of Islam in the United States should be considered racial discrimination Aziz said that the word “Muslim” has become “racialized” and, once American criticism of Islam was silenced, the effect would be to "take [fed ...

Providing Modi with a platform to speak a political act: Ania Loomba, dissenting professor POLITICS, Updated Mar 07, 2013 at 11:11am IST Narendra Modi's keynote address at the India Economic Forum organised by The Wharton School of University of Pennsylvania, scheduled for March 23, was cancelled after a protest petition by three University of Pennsylvania academics - Ania Loomba, Catherine Bryson Professor of English; Suvir Kaul, A M Rosenthal Professor of English and Toorjo Ghose, Assistant Professor at the School of Social Policy and Practice - which received support from various quarters of the American academic and non-academic society. Modi has always been a polarising figure and the Wharton saga has been no different. Many have supported him and some have not.

Swimming in Debt: Wealth Gap Between Blacks and Whites Has Tripled February 27, 2013 | Filed under: BizTechNews | Posted by: bowatkin by Dr. Boyce Watkins The wealth gap in America has been a persistent problem in this country since its founding. Over 400 years of slavery and a series of Jim Crow laws designed to restrict the accumulation of wealth and power has left the black community seeking to rebuild financially from it’s challenged past. To date, African American families have far more debt and far fewer assets than the typical white family in America. During the recent recession, the wealth gap between blacks and whites nearly doubled, with whites having nearly 22 times as much wealth as African Americans. A new study from Brandeis University’s Institute on Assets and Social Policy says that the growing gap is part of a long-term trend in differences between wealth, debt and income levels between whites and blacks. According to the center, the wealth of whites has grown a great deal over t ...
