Today’s Passage
:
The term
New
Deal
derives from Franklin Roosevelt’s 1932
speech accepting the Democratic Party’s nomination for president. At
the convention Roosevelt declared, “I pledge you, I pledge myself, to a
new deal for the American people.” Though Roosevelt did not have
concrete po
licy proposals in mind at the time, the phrase "New Deal"
came to encompass his many programs designed to lift the United
States out of the Great Depression.

Using colons and semicolons
Today’s Passage
:
A world
-
wide epidemic caused by influenza viruses led to
between 50 and 100 million deaths in 1918 and 1919 (as much as 1 of every 18 people).
Because neutral Spain was not censoring news it became associated with Spain but its
origins are more likely to b
e the USA or
France. It came in three waves:
Spring 191
8,
Autumn 1918, and Winter 1919;
the second wave was unusually deadly. And unlike
typical flu pandemics it disproportionately killed young healthy adults. Many
researchers have suggested that the condi
tions of the war significantly aided the spread
of the disease.

Grammar
:
Using colons and semicolons
Rules
:
use semicolons to punctuate a complex list, which is when list items
contain commas
, or to separate independent clauses;
Use colons to link items in a sentence that are st
rongly connected
For
example
:
My favorite place to be is on a boat; I can just forget about all my
other problems.
We are going skiing in
Park City, Utah
;
Jackson Hole, Wyoming
;
and Big Sky, Montana this winter.
I spent my Saturday the be
st way I know how: running around in
the park with my dogs.
My new shoes are my three favorite colors: green, red, and blue
.

Mathematics Topic:
Circles and Pie
(actually: Pi)
Every circle has a
center
, which is a point
wher
e the distance
to the edge of the
circle is always the same:
T
he distance from the center of a circle to any point on the circle is exactly the
same.

Grammar
:
comma and conjunction connect independent clauses
Rules
:
1.
The
comma
is always correct when used to
separate
two
independent
clauses connected
by a coordinating
conjunction
.
(
http:/
/grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/conjunctions.htm
)
2.
Use coordinating conjunctions to indicate that the elements
they join are equal in importance and in structure.
Definition of Coordinating Conjunctions
Coordinating conjunctions
join grammatically similar elements (two nouns, two verbs, two modifiers,
two independent clauses):
and
or
nor
so
but
for
yet
How to punctuate coordinating conjunctions
When a coordinating conjunction joins two
independent clauses
, a comma is used before the
coordinating conjunction (unless the two independent clauses are very short).
Perhaps no budget is without some fat, but university officials argue that their unique function requires special standards o
f
evaluation.

please support educational non-profit Khan Academy, to help my students…

I use the free non-profit web portal Khan Academy for my Adult High School night classes. It helps those students who need more refresher classes, and also those students who are ready to skip ahead of where I am in the lectures, so that I can focus on creating one lesson plan and then work individually with other students who need in-person attention. I also use KA activities as on-line worksheets, and for students who cannot make it to class due to work, surgery, car-accidents, family emergencies, etc.
Because my students can use the app with or without registering, it makes their lives easier, and facilitates my sending them assignments for things like Learn Storm, which helps them above and beyond their content and test-taking studies.

I am still in a precarious situation myself, and so am currently unable to donate, but I will dare to ask you, my dear readers, if you are able, to please give just a bit of your abundance, to help me and my students build a better society, a kinder society, and a better, kinder, safer world for all of us.
Please.

Ir en Metro, o en Deuda? Take the Metro, or Take the Debt?

Click here for English…

 

“ -Fuera lo espera un chófer con un coche oficial.

-Gracias.
Prefiero ir en metro. ”

Como el subsecretario Salvador Martí del Ministerio del Tiempo, ojala que habîan màs funcionarios que nos darîan el buen ejemplo de usar los transportes publicos. A menudo, la falta de transporte publico llega hasta faltar las citas medicas y legales, con consequencia de perder los procesos judiciales que no han de perder, si la persona endeudada hubiera podido llegar a la corte para defender sus derechos.

A corto plazo, otros estados de los EEUU podrîan seguir el ejemplo del estado de Maryland, que ha prohibido las acciónes civiles por parte de colectores de deudas ya pasado la fecha limite segûn el tipo de deuda. Mientras tanto, a largo plazo, reconstruimos nuestra estructura economica para crear la igualdad en vez de crear la pobreza. Los dos puntos de vista, corto y largo plazo, nos urge.

 

“ -An official car and choffeur are waiting for you outside
-Thank you.
I prefer to take the Metro.”

Would that more of our public officials, like subsecretary Salvador Marti of The Ministry of Time, set the example of using public transportation. Lack of transportation often leads to default judgement on an expired debt which could have been avoided, had the debtor been able to defend in court.

Over the short-term, states could follow the example of Maryland, and prohibit lawsuits on all expired debts, while also rebuilding our economic structures to create equity rather than poverty, over the long-term. Both short-term and long-term approaches are needed, urgently.

Let’s start to #EndPoverty by improving these four parts of our Public Domain Social Infrastructure, the #PublicDomainInfrastructure 4: (1. #libraries, 2. #ProBono legal aid and Education, 3. #UniversalHealthCare , and 4. good #publictransport )

Paran yok mu? Tutsağı olabilir… No money for Medical Bills? You could be jailed…

Click here for English…

 

“ -Ne olacak şimdi peki? ”

Nazlı, Yunanistan’a uygun visa’le olmadan için tutsağı oldu, ama aynı şey bir ABD vatandaşı başına gelebilir…

 

“ -Well, now what’s going to happen? ”

Nazlı is behind bars for arriving in Greece without the proper paperwork, but the same thing can happen to a US citizen in many states for also not having the proper paperwork: debt caused by lack of healthcare, for instance. In both cases, putting a person who has not been convicted of a crime behind bars can result from simply not having enough money to pay medical bills, leading to a worsening spiral of debt which affects us all. The simplest solutions would be to halt the practice of Body Attachment, in the short-term, and enact a Single Payer System of Universal Healthcare in the longer term. The first requires action on a state-by-state basis, at least at the moment. Both short-term and long-term approaches are needed, immediately.

Connâitre ses Droits et éviter les Proces… Free Legal Education and Pre-Trial Diversion…

Click here for English…

 

“ -C’est quoi ça?
-Votre côte sur le marché de l’art: 11.000 euros”

Mais si Driss n’avait-t-il pas d’argent ? Et s’ils lui avaient arrêtaient dans la misère ? Aux États-Unis il y à une moyen d’éviter les procès mais qui coute cher, selon l’état dans on aura le procès. C’est mon espoir qu’on peut avoir des changements de cette politique, avec l’aide des citoyens Américains, et aussi ce de nos amis.

 

“ -What’s this?
-That’s what you’re worth on the art market: 11,000 Euros.”

But what about before Driss had that money? What if he’d been arrested utterly poor?

In many states, programs exist to help first time offenders avoid trial and charges. But, Pre-trial Diversion or Intervention programs, as they are known, are often unfair to the poor, as in MD and many other states: perpetrating the cruelty of charging money that some people simply do not have in order to avoid jail. My emphatic immediate-term policy recommendation is that all States emulate “Cook County … in Chicago, where defendants are not charged a fee ” for Pre-Trial service programs. And my long-term policy recommendation is that we strengthen our freely available legal services and Pro-Bono Legal Aide availability drastically, perhaps requiring ALL lawyers and law firms to offer 20% of their time or services free to lower income people, and that states and counties offer free continuing education in financial and consumer education, including the all too rarely taught rights in each state regarding debt, housing, health care and also criminal law. Both short-term and long-term approaches are needed, immediately.

Toward “…justice for all.”

Bibliotecas y la vida tras la Deuda… Libraries and Life after Debt…

Click here for English…

 

“ -¿Adónde vas?
-A la biblioteca.
-Hija, la vida es más que leer libros.
-Ya lo sé, madre.
-Lo aprendí leyendo”

¿Cuantos hemos sufrido la pena de ser facturado injustamente por una deuda?
Muchos.
¿Cuantos tenemos la suerte de conocer nuestros derechos y que hay que defenderlos?
No tantos.
¿Cuantos sabemos donde encontrar los detalles de estos derechos y como defenderlos?
No suficientamente.
¿Y cuantos tenemos acceso a un abogado, o biblioteca de derecho, y transporte, sin decir la buena salud para irse?
No la mayoria de nosotros.
Por eso nos urge las buenas bibliotecas publicas y transporte publico, para ayudar a todos en defender sus derechos. En un epoca de escasos recursos para las escuelas y bibliotecas publicas, los que necesitan màs tienen menos.
Hay soluciones para ello: Primero, dar màs dinero a los transportes y bibliotecas publicos, y a las escuelas. Segundo, quitar de encima de la gente las deudas a cada rato. Así podemos cambiar la desigalidad que nos limita a todos.


Salud Para Todos! #PublicDomainInfrastructure

“ -Where are you going?
-To the Library.
-Daughter, there is more to life than reading books.
-I know, mother. I learned it by reading.”

How many of us have experienced the pain of being wrongly billed by a debt collector?
Many.
How many of us are lucky enough to know that we have rights that we must defend, which cannot be transgressed by those debt collectors?
Not as many.
How many of us know where to find the details of those rights and how to go about defending ourselves legally?
Not nearly enough of us.
And how many of us have access to good legal counsel, or a law library, and the transportation, not to mention the good health, to get there, and then to court if necessary?
Not most of us.
This is where public libraries, and public transportation, become crucial as places to help all citizens research and learn about their rights and how to defend them. In an era of shrinking library and school budgets for the 99%, separate is still not equal: fewer libraries and fewer legal and research librarians are available to guide residents searching for current Statute of Limitations, debt collection laws, etc. The result is that those who need the most help get the least, and inequality continues to grow, harming all of us.

One short term solution to these problems is clearly to fully fund Public Libraries, Pro-Bono legal and consumer Education, Public Transportation, and Universal Health Care (4 major components of our Public Domain Social Infrastructure #PublicDomainInfrastructure ).
One possible long term solution could be an old solution, advocated by several major religions over the millennia: the forgiveness of debt after a certain period of time. Modern student loans, for example, in the UK are rumored to be forgiven after 15 years, while Ancient Near Eastern societies mandated forgiving all sorts of debts periodically. These policies, modern and ancient, were meant to prevent what we are seeing today, particularly in the USA: an entrenched cycle of inequality that prevents the vast majority of people from achieving liberty, let alone pursuing happiness.

Whose Justice? Kimin Adalet?

Click here for English…

 

“-Sultan Süleyman’ın Adalet ”

Kanûnî Sultan Süleyman’ın Adaleti budır…

Adaleti fikirlerimizi 500 yıl Sultan Süleyman’dan sonra değiştirdiler. Çok sevdiği şov Muhteşem Yüzyıl 600 Mısır’daki aileleri Mısır’ya dömeyi izin verdiğini ve kötü Pashahının başı kestirdi gösterdi. Bizim göremizi böyle bir adalet çok sert ama şu Sultan kütüphaneleri hamamlar ve çok altyapı halklar için yaptıldı. Dr. Maulana Karenga, şimdiki düşüncüler gibi adalet insanlık gibi derler yani hem aynı saygı her kez için hem aynı şeref için. Diğerleri, John Rawls gibi, adaleti kontrolu için derler, her kez herhangi yerleri koyarlar. Tüm üçüncü bir şey derler ki her kes ileri geçmesi lazım. O yüzdan adalet için tüm insanları hem kütüphane hem Temel Gelir şart.

(Türkcemi düzetleri için çok teşekkür edericektim… Corrections to my Turkish gratefully accepted…)

 

“-Sultan Suleiman’s Justice…”

This was Suleiman the Magnificent’s Justice…

Our notions of what justice is have changed over the five hundred years since Sultan Suleiman dispensed judgments and consequences. The popular series Magnificent Century depicts him freeing 600 Egyptian families to return to Egypt and executing the cruel official who had enslaved them. His justice may have seemed harsh to modern eyes, yet this Sultan also built schools with libraries, public baths, hostels and hospitals, providing a high level of public infrastructure to his subjects. Modern thinkers, such as Dr. Maulana Karenga, have defined justice in part as being fundamentally defined by treatment of each human being with equal respect and dignity. Others, like John Rawls, have proposed tests of justice in which societal roles could be interchangeable. All three agree in the essential: that each human being must be given the opportunity to grow. Each agrees that justice requires certain access and resources for all people, including: Free access to learning, and the time to use it. #PublicDomainInfrastructure (1.Free and full access Public Libraries
2.Pro-Bono Legal and Free Consumer Education
3.Universal Health Care on a Single Payer System
and
4. Good Public Transportation) can help accomplish that.

Quand t’es amené au cour pour rien avoir fait… When you are brought to court for no crime…

Click here for English…

 

“-Architecte Numérobis !

-Oh !
C’est pas la peine de me pousser !”

… ça s’appelle (aux états unis) un “Body Attachment” -ce qui permet de t’envoyer au tribunal sans avoir commis un délit. Et le problème avec ça c’est que il y à plein des procès contre le démunies mais pas contre les riches. Souvent, les jugements par défaut sont obtenus sur les dettes qui sont bien au-delà de leurs statuts de limitations, mais les accusés ne pouvaient pas se défendre par un manque de savoir ou un manque de capacité à se défendre, et donc perdu soit par défaut, malgré la poursuite étant techniquement illégal. En suite ça mène à encore plus des soucies d’argent et même en prison, sûr tout quand on à des diversions pour ce qui peuvent payer, mais des procès et aux prison pour ce qui n’ont pas les moyens de payer pour éviter les procès. Après ça, le système de justice criminel a son propre montage des dettes, encore pire.

Des solutions possibles: Qu’on fait pas amené au tribunal pour des dettes, qu’après un temps limite, il n’y aura pas des procès pour des dettes, et sûr tout pas de paiements pour éviter les procès légaux. Et comment se fait-t-on pour éviter tous ces maux ? On incite les gouvernements de donner un Revenu de Base a tout le monde, augmenté par des Monnaies Locales. Et ça, c’est fait par la coopération humain. Même la Reine ne le peut pas nier.


“-Architecte Numérobis !

-Hey!
You don’t need to push me!”

… that is called (in the United States) a “Body Attachment” -which lets you be taken into custody without having committed a crime. The problem with that is that there is a greatly disproportionate rate of civil justice system debt collection litigation against the poor, rather than against wealthier debtors. Often default judgments are obtained on debts which are well past their Statutes of Limitations, but defendants were unable, due to lack of knowledge or lack of ability (illness, fear, no time off from work, lack of transportation, etc…) to defend, and thus lost by default, despite the lawsuit being technically illegal to begin with. This can lead to further financial problems, and even to jail time for those who end up in the Criminal Justice system. Particularly unjust is Pre-Trial Diversion, also known as Pre-Trial Intervention. Those who can afford to pay for Pre-Trial Diversions get all charges dropped, while those who cannot afford to pay go to trial and even to prison. To make matters worse, the criminal justice system has its own structure of debts on top of civil debts.

Some possible solutions to this arbitrary abuse of our justice system are: abolishing “Body Attachment” in the case of civil debt judgments, prohibiting lawsuit filings on time-barred debts, and above all, eliminating payment for Pre-Trial Diversion/Intervention. But how can we potentially prevent all of these problems at their source? We could encourage governments to provide a universal Basic Income, even if only in a Local Currency, potentially backed by partial acceptance for payment of local taxes, as many municipalities have done. This provides a floor on poverty, a floor on desperation, and a chance at avoiding the civil debts that often presage criminal justice system involvement, in our uneven set of systems. Even the Queen could not deny that.

Las Monedas Sociales y las Cooperativas; Community Currencies and Cooperatives

Click here for English…

“¿Ahora somos soberanos o rendimos pleitesía?

Sí, al Banco Central Europeo.”

Este es un comienzo para mi nueva forma de escribir, lo que voy a seguir mostrando como la Politiqua Publica y los Artes van juntos para el bien de todos, sobre todo cuando apoyado por las Monedas Sociales para empezar cooperativas de trabajadores (como han hecho en Ithaca, en el estado de Nueva York).  Pero estoy pensando en la razones de mi apoyo por las monedas sociales, despues de diez años trabajando en el tema.

En lo que toca a la transparencia, la responsibilidad y la participaciôn en la toma de decisiones sobre la emisiôn del dinero, las monedas sociales ganan el concurso.  Pero, también se puede emitir el dinero de manera mas democratica, y eso pondra fin a esos problemas.  Sobre todo si emitîamos màs dinero en lugares donde se hace falta, las ciudades, por ejemplo.  Una politica de dar el dinero sin costo alguno a las pequeñas emprezas darà recursos para las communidades locales sin necesidad de emitir una moneda local.  Pero, acaso una moneda local la hace mas facil tener una Renta Basica Universal?  Por que me parece, dado lo que ya hemos dicho en respeto a las cooperativas, que el dinero nacional es igual o mejor que la moneda social. Sin embargo, viendo de nuevo mis ensayos de los discursos que he dado, me acuerdo del bien que hace Las Monedas Sociales para la gente en agregando al dinero national, asi que por favor, siguen emitiendo las Monedas Sociales!!

“Are we rulers or do we pay tribute now?

Yes, to the European Central Bank”

This is a template for my new format of posting, which will continue to show how Public Policy and the Arts work together for our common good, particularly when encouraged via complimentary local currencies used to incubate local workers cooperatives (as in Ithaca, NY).  But I am considering my reasons for having supported Local Currencies for the past ten years.

For transparency, accountability and participation in the decisions around issuing money, local currencies win, hands-down.  But, money can be issued more democratically, and that would end those particular problems.  Especially if we issued more money into areas where it was most needed, like inner cities.  A policy of grants for small businesses would provide resources for local communities without needing to issue a local currency.  But would a local currency make it easier to have a Universal Basic Income?  Apparently, with respect to cooperatives, national currencies are as good as or better than Local Currencies, given the above criteria are met. But, looking back at both of my talk hand-outs below, I remember the good for local people that local currencies can do as a complement to national money, and so please, continue issuing those Local Complementary Currencies!!

Grammar

Colons
Rules:
(note that colons can be used instead of semicolons to separate
independent clauses, but that is very rare)
Use a colon to introduce an
item or a series of items. Do
not capitalize the first item
after the colon (unless it's a
proper noun).
Examples:
You
know what to do: practice.
You may be required to bring many
things: sleeping bags, pans, utensils,
and warm clothing.
I want the following items: butter,
sugar, and flour.
I need an assistant who can do the
following: input data, write reports,

(Btw, here is why cross

multiplying works:
With algebra, it's almost obvious,
and certainly not something
special. I'll try to express t
his in a way that students
who
don't know algebra (or don't realize how much of it they have
already seen) can follow.
Remember that if you have two equal quan
tities and multiply them
by the same amount, the products will again be equal. So if we
multiply the fractions a/b and c/d by b, the results are equal:
a c
---
* b =
---
* b
b d
which can be written as
bc
a =
----
d
Now we can multiply both fractions by d:
bc
ad =
----
* d
d
which, of course, means
ad = bc
I personally prefer not to cross multiply, but just to multiply
by whichever denominator helps. In your example, 3/15 = n/30, I
would just multiply both sides by 30 and get
n = 30*3/15
= 30/15*3
= 2*3
= 6.

Why did I start with a ratio? Because
similar triangles are propor
tional
,
or in a
ratio
relationship, with one another
.
Congruent
triangles are also in a ratio: one to one.
So
still, all
the
side
length
s
of one triangle
are proportional to
the corresponding side lengths of the
other triangle.
T

ratio in a similar triangle is 1::x, and in a corresponding triangle, 1::1.

Reading Comp.
:
theme
The theme is unspoken, but is there, in symbols and in ideas, throughout
the entire passage or book. It is a
big idea
that the author wants you to think about.
Today’s Passage:
colonists
, who later rebelled,
had
established the Contin
ental Congress in 1774 tounite the colonies.
I
n
1775m the Second continental Congress appointed
George
Washington
as commander of the continental army, which re;ained
the government of the united states until the u
.
s
.
Constitution was
ratif
ied in 1789
.
(Today
’s reading comes from
P. 253
in Peterson’s Master the HiSET, 2nd
Edition
...)
W
here
might there be a compound sentence?
Where are the Grammatical errors?
7:07
Grammar
:
Clauses and commas
A clause is any noun phrase plus a ver
b
; and a comma goes around
it.
F
or
example:
My cat, which is purring, sheds
a lot
of fur
.
Where is the clause
in our reading above
?
Let
s do the first question on our commas and clauses activity:
https://www.khanacademy.org/humanities/grammar/punctuation
-
the
-
comma
-
and
-

-
apostrophe/commas
-

and
-

and
-

Mathematics Topic:
Area of rectangles, squares, and triangles
Why would we want to
convert between forms of expression
?
Sometimes a problem
is ea
sier to solve in an equivalent form...
Relationship between
rect

s
,
square
s
, &
tri

Today’s Passage:
Learning from his mistake
Herman talked to his friend, Mia, and she told him that he shouldn’t get upset
about his bad grade since mistakes are learning opportunities and just a part
of the learning process! She suggested that instead of getting discouraged or
giving up, he should
reflect on his mistakes, see why he made those mistakes,
and then think of ways that he could avoid making the same mistakes again.
It’s a feedback opportunity!
Mia encouraged h
erman to go to tutoring and ask for help figuring out a
different learning stra
tegy.
When Herman showed up to tutoring, his teacher gave him a few pointers on
different learning strategies that might improve his understanding of concepts
he was learning in history. Instead of memorizing facts and events, the
teacher suggested
he
spen
d a little bit more time thinking about a
nd
answering the question why. h
is teacher encouraged Herman to retake the test
and try again after giving this new learning strategy a try.
