Why Police Reform Needs To Be An Inside Job

CHICAGO ― Even staunch advocates of policing admit that major changes are needed to salvage the institution’s reputation and efficacy after two years of harsh scrutiny over racism, secrecy and lack of accountability. They disagree, however, on how to best do that. The discussion around police reform hit a major flashpoint last November with the release of a video showing a Chicago cop shooting 17-year-old Laquan McDonald 16 times as the teen walked away.  “Because it was so stark, there was no denying how horrible it was,” Craig Futterman, a professor at the University of Chicago Law School, told The Huffington Post ahead of last week’s Chicago Ideas Week conference. He and several other policing experts met there to discuss the police force of the future ― with discussions ranging from better officer recruitment to full-scale abolition. “But perhaps more important, what caught even the most causal observer, was what happened afterwards,” Futterman added.  Footage of the fatal shooting was only made public after an anonymous tipster told Futterman it existed, and he stared a yearlong legal battle to have it released. In addition to discrediting the police’s official narrative, the video galvanized already growing scrutiny around problems that reform advocates say are pervasive in police departments across the U.S.  function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); Some law enforcement officials, including FBI Director James Comey, have responded by invoking the “viral video effect” ― a popular but discredited theory that filming police has actually resulted in higher overall crime rates and fewer arrests.  But Futterman says videos only reveal problems that have been there all along. Rationale for police misconduct has changed from “justified shootings” to “acts of self-defense” to “one bad apple,” he said, noting that videos force departments to reckon with patterns that have led to that evolution. “We shouldn’t forget the whole saying: One bad apple spoils the whole bunch,” Futterman said. “We’ve had systemic issues with regard to racism and brutality for years. That goes beyond the bad acts of a single person.”   I think the profession has been irreparably damaged and we have to figure out what’s next. Former NYPD officer Eugene O’Donnell Eugene O’Donnell, a former New York City police officer and prosecutor who now teaches at John Jay College, took issue with the belief that Americans are generally unhappy with the police. He argued instead that “elites” ― like journalists and politicians ― have led much of the anger directed at law enforcement. Still, he acknowledged that departments can’t go on with business as usual.  “I think the profession has been irreparably damaged and we have to figure out what’s next,” O’Donnell said.  Many of his peers support community policing ― a strategy that involves officers fostering trust by patrolling a specific area to build relationships and familiarize themselves with the issues there ― but O’Donnell said that tactic ignores the reality of police work. “Built into the police role is that they make enemies with people,” he said. “That’s the way policing works.”  function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_2'),onPlayerReadyVidible); O’Donnell said he believes the current climate of scrutiny could lead to a longer-term crisis of no one wanting to be a cop. A dearth of recruits has prompted departments to lower their hiring standards related to such issues as exam performance, drug tests and academic qualifications, he said. About 1 percent of police forces nationwide currently require a four-year degree; nearly a decade years ago, 75 percent of forces required one.  “I don’t know what [police] are allowed to do once they get hired,” O’Donnell said, noting that widespread criticisms of law enforcement have resulted in some officers feeling like they can’t use traditional policing methods. President Barack Obama established a task force on 21st-century policing in 2014. The group recommended in a report released the following year that police departments should improve how they collect data, particularly regarding use of force.  Cedric Alexander, a task force member and public safety director in DeKalb County, Georgia, said better data collection could be a step toward building better community-police relations and rooting out excessive force. “I think you’re going to see a much better police department if you can see the data and see what they’re doing the street,” Alexander said during a panel discussion at Chicago Ideas Week.  Marc Lamont Hill, an African-American studies professor at Morehouse College and former HuffPost Live host, was the panelist most wary of the proposed reforms. He comes from a self-described radical background, and said the institution of policing is too broken to mend because it was built on a foundations of racism, brutality and secrecy.  In the immediate term, Hill suggests decreasing the overcriminalization of small infractions, which are overwhelmingly enforced against black and Latino Americans. Something like selling CDs in front of a store should be regulated by a community entity rather than an armed police force, he said.  The cost of perpetuating bad practices, Hill said, is loss of human life. “Take Eric Garner ― that’s ticky-tacky policing,” he said. “That’s ‘I gotta stop a guy selling loose cigarettes because those type of minor offenses lead to major ones.’ Bad policing causes people to die.”  Futterman, the University of Chicago professor, said the tight-knit, fraternal culture of police departments has contributed to the challenge of overhauling the institution. There is a dangerous “us versus them” mentality that has abetted misconduct ― and punished whistleblowers trying to do the right thing. “If you buck the official narrative, you get crushed. Not just by the rank-and-file, but by the entire department,” Futterman said. “That could mean the end of your career, the end of your life, the end of your family.”  The person who alerted him about the McDonald footage, for example, still works in Chicago law enforcement and has chosen to remain anonymous.  Moving forward, Futterman said departments must fire officers who lie on reports and criminally prosecute anyone who retaliates against their peers for blowing the whistle on misconduct.  “If you’re going to lie, if you submit false reports, put people in jail who shouldn’t be in jail, if you’re going to abuse your power to wantonly hurt someone who is weaker than you, you absolutely have no business wearing a badge,” he said.  Reconciling the longstanding practices with the new expectations is part of the issue, Futterman said. And he agreed it would be difficult for the officers.  “If you’ve taught me for all these years that policing means laying hands on more and more people, and you’re telling me not to do that, what do I do now?” Futterman said. “The ground has moved beneath them.”   -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Diplomats: U.S. expected to abstain on UN vote on Cuba embargo

WASHINGTON — The United States on Wednesday will abstain for the first time from a U.N. resolution criticizing America's economic embargo against Cuba, according to diplomats familiar with the matter. Such a step would effectively pit the Obama administration and Cuba with the world body against the Republican-led Congress, which supports the 55-year-old embargo despite the U.S. resumption of full diplomatic relations with Cuba.The diplomats said the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, will explain the decision shortly before the U.N. General Assembly vote. The diplomats spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the vote publicly.A U.S. official said Power would point to elements of this year's resolution that the U.S. does not back, despite its overall support for lifting the embargo, as the reason why the U.S. was abstaining instead of voting for the resolution outright.The U.S. has always opposed the annual resolution condemning the embargo. But an abstention would be in keeping with the administration's belief that the embargo should be lifted as part of normalizing diplomatic relations with Cuba.General Assembly resolutions are nonbinding and unenforceable. But the 24-year-old exercise in which the U.N. overwhelmingly votes to condemn the embargo has given Cuba a global stage to demonstrate America's isolation on its Cuba policy.The administration had considered abstaining from the vote last year, but concluded it could not do so because the resolution did not reflect what it considered to be the spirit of engagement between Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro.The 2015 vote ended up 191-2 to condemn the commercial, economic and financial embargo against Cuba; it was the highest number of votes ever for the measure. Only Israel joined the United States in opposing the resolution.Obama and Castro announced on Dec. 17, 2014, that they were restoring diplomatic ties, which were broken in 1961 after Fidel Castro took power and installed a communist government.On July 20 last year, diplomatic relations were restored and embassies of the two countries were reopened, but serious issues remain, especially the U.S. call for human rights on the Caribbean island and claims for expropriated property.

Make America un-Hate Again

Well here we are finally-weeks away from election 2016. (Thank God) The two candidates are limping in to the final stretch. One candidate is a career capitalistic business man who has gamed the system to work his way to the top of corporate America leveraging tax code loopholes and the illegal immigrants he wants to kick out of this country to build his empire. He's a loose cannon, foul-mouthed and misogynistic-and that's being nice about it. The other candidate is a career politician who has lied and tried to cover up her mistakes for years. She's used the DNC to help eradicate her competition within her party successfully and failed to apologize and own up to her failures as Secretary of State. The bottom line is that regardless of what candidate you support, both of them are far from perfect. Anyone who is watching this campaign is hard-pressed to think of anything that either candidate has proactively accomplished to further our country and to help its citizens. Neither candidate seems to have anything good to say about the other or the citizens of this country. Maligning each other and the supporters of their opposition is the only thing they seem to do well. How did we arrive at this current situation? How did we as a country narrow our selection to these two characters who have so many flaws? Both candidates have called each other's supporters names and slandered them in front of millions around the world on television and other social media outlets. Seriously? Our leaders act like they're two immature high school students cat-fighting over a love interest. Where is our example? Where is our leadership? Hey grrrrl, are you Election 2016?...because I'm tired of hearing about you, you look like a train wreck & whatever you decide is terrible.— The Refined Ruffian (@CulturedRuffian) August 28, 2016 The world is on fire. It is the scariest it seems it's ever been. Racism, hatred of other cultures, minorities & law officers show itself on television, social media and in the streets of the United States of America. For the last year and a half this country has gone from a respected world leader to become the laughing stock of the world. How did we let this happen? Better yet how can we fix it? Why can't we all love babies, balloons, spray tans, pant suits, toupees and all just get along for once? pic.twitter.com/GwepvdLbgP— The Refined Ruffian (@CulturedRuffian) August 5, 2016 It seems that political campaigns last way too long. The longer they go, the more irrational it seems the candidates become. The longer the campaign, the less they focus on the issues and the more they focus on attacking each other and other people. The system is flawed. No longer can anyone run for president. You must be rich, famous, wealthy or highly connected by the people who are. It seems that all politicians-Republican or Democrat-make a career out of it and very rarely do they give back anything except false promises and only when they need the People's vote again. For all of these reasons and many more specifically, I believe that Congress, Supreme Court Justices and all branches of elected officials in the government should have term limits. Whatever happened to the civil servant? A career should not be made out of running for office when people's public trust is placed in that position. We need campaign reform. If you want to run for office, there should be a clear, concise structure within which the average person could do so. This should involve no campaign contributions from from foreign countries or entities, and would also limit the amount of money that could be used by candidate during their election process. The length of the election process itself also should be limited. This country does not need a year and a half long presidential poo-flinging show to interrupt the sitting president's decisions and allow people to grandstand against him, malign him and call him names by attacking him on the campaign trail. This country has enough problems without our future leaders slandering each other, calling each other names and insulting the citizens of the United States because they support another candidate. The candidates should receive a certain amount of money equally and a certain amount of time to spend it (ie. 6 months) then the people will decide by a vote as it was intended. These things seem like very difficult things to get done and laws would need to be passed to get these things accomplished. If we as a people are angered enough, we will organize and vote for elected officials who reflect our beliefs instead of sitting at home railing our opinions to the masses on social media. If this doesn't accurately sum up the United States during the 2016 Election process, I don't know what does. pic.twitter.com/wo7O7IET1Y— The Refined Ruffian (@CulturedRuffian) October 15, 2016 IDEA: Love & support others as much as we love & support a political candidate who doesn't know or care about any of us. ❤️— The Refined Ruffian (@CulturedRuffian) September 28, 2016 Let's talk about what is really important-We The People. Sadly, as I've seen our two candidates slander each other and United States citizens on national television, I've seen so many of us turn to do the same to each other. Friends, family and others have severed relationships over differences in political opinions. Sadly, we can no longer follow the example of our political leaders who constantly attack each other and the people of this country. We all need to realize that despite what others are doing around us, we are all responsible for our own character in the end. Sitting behind a computer screen anonymously attacking strangers on the internet for their political or religious beliefs by bullying them, calling them names and inciting others to do so is despicable to do to another human being-let alone a fellow citizen of these Not-So-United States. Spouting hatred and contempt toward someone voting for a candidate other than our choice is simply un-American. As a strong proponent of free speech, I believe people have the right to criticize each other's ideas, however to personally attack an entire group of people supporting a candidate for president is less than respectable to ourselves and the country. The level of internet trolling and bullying due to someone's political & religious beliefs has skyrocketed over the past few elections in this country. I'm all for a good, healthy political debate of ideas, but when we personally attack a fellow citizen and human being, we have turned to a darkness that is very difficult to escape. Who are we? What are we teaching our children-let alone the rest of the world? Are we an example of light, love and freedom shining as a beacon in the darkness of this world, or are we adding to the very evil we claim to fight against? Regardless of who you'll vote for, you should vote-it's our civic duty. It's also our duty as United States citizens to treat fellow Americans and all people with love and kindness as human beings no matter their color, culture, religion or other differences. Let's debate the issues instead of attacking the person. Let's agree to disagree and treat each other with love and respect as we do it. Let's come together again at the UNITED States and be the example our forefathers envisioned for our children and the rest of the world. I believe in us. No matter who gets elected this November, let's live our lives the best we can helping and loving each other and those in our communities. Having a bad day? Truth is, most people reading this don't know what a bad day is.

FACT SHEET: The Obama Administration Announces New Steps to Spur Competition in the Labor Market and Accelerate Wage Growth

Today’s actions to address wage collusion, unnecessary non-compete agreements, and other anticompetitive practices respond to the President’s Executive Order issued on April 15, directing agencies to increase competition for consumers and workers. Today, we’re in the midst of the longest streak of job growth in U.S. history. The U.S. Census Bureau recently reported that in 2015, the typical household saw its income grow by 5.2 percent (about $2,800), the largest one-year increase on record. At the same time, the President has made clear that there is still more work to do to reverse longer-run patterns of stagnant wage growth and rising income inequality. Over the past several decades, only the highest earners have seen steady wage gains; for most workers, wage growth has been sluggish and has failed to keep pace with gains in productivity. Over the same period, the share of national income going to labor has also fallen, and labor income itself has become divided increasingly unevenly. To ensure that workers share more fully in the gains they help create, the White House is announcing today new steps in response to the President’s April 2016 Executive Order calling for actions that enhance competition to benefit consumers, workers, and entrepreneurs. Issue Brief on How Monopsony Power Impacts Wages and Employment. The Council of Economic Advisers is releasing a new issue brief that reviews evidence that firms may have wage-setting power in a broad range of areas, explains how anticompetitive forces can lead to a redistribution of revenues from workers to companies, and reviews the policy implications of this analysis. Non-Compete Agreements: Call-to-Action to States, Largest-Ever Data Collection, and State-by-State Policy Report. Non-compete agreements narrow the employment options for an estimated one in five workers in the United States. As the White House and Treasury reported earlier this year, there is substantial evidence of overuse and misuse of these clauses. Today, the Administration put out a call to action and set of best practices for state policymakers to enact reforms to reduce the prevalence of non-compete agreements that are hurting workers and regional economies. To contextualize these best practices, the White House is releasing a state-by-state report on key dimensions of current state non-compete policy. Finally, we are announcing commitments to undertake the largest data collection of its kind to better measure non-compete usage by firms and individuals, alike. Antitrust Guidance and Reporting Hotline for Human Resource Professionals. On Thursday, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) released guidance for HR professionals for how to spot and report collusion among competing employers that may violate the antitrust laws.  In the guidance, DOJ announced that going forward it will criminally investigate allegations that employers have agreed amongst themselves on employee compensation or not to solicit or hire one another’s employees. These new actions complement the many other steps the Administration has advanced and supported to level the playing field for workers in the job market, including raising the minimum wage, advancing paid leave, supporting collective bargaining, and pushing to reform occupational licensing and land use restrictions. THE CASE FOR ACTION Increasingly, researchers are reporting signs of declining U.S. labor market competition. Economists have begun exploring how these trends connect to rising income inequality. While recent discussions on television set-top boxes and airline tickets have focused on the ability of a small number of firms to set high prices, reduced competition in the labor market results in lower wages and greater earnings inequality, and can also result in lower employment. There are many forces that can limit competition between firms and give employers some power to set wages below the market rate. In some cases, wage-setting power can result from employer actions—like collusion or the use of non-compete agreements—that artificially restrict competition. More generally, any factor that limits workers’ choices, restricts their mobility, or creates barriers to changing jobs can weaken workers’ bargaining position—which may force them to accept lower compensation or inferior working conditions. The data show that workers today are in many ways less mobile and less likely to switch jobs than they were 20 or 30 years ago. One factor that contributes to trends in labor mobility is the amount of market power that employers can exercise in the labor market. When a small number of employers—or even one employer—wields a large share of market power, they can exercise so-called “monopsony power.” Monoposonies are the other side of the coin to monopolies. Both reflect a company’s ability to affect markets in ways that would be impossible in competitive markets. Monopolies occur when companies have outsized market power, so they can set the price of a good or service at a level higher than if there was fair competition. Monopsonies occur when companies with power in labor markets can set the wages they pay at lower levels and hire fewer workers than if there was strong competition. These lower wages have real consequences for families and the economy more broadly. Greater labor market competition can help promote efficiency and employment and ensure that the benefits of economic growth are shared by all. In particular, increased labor market competition means: Higher wages and more hiring. When businesses must compete for workers, they recruit workers and offer higher wages as long as the value of output they produce can support the going wage. Competition thus encourages employers to seek out all productive and efficient hiring opportunities and establishes a close link between wages and productivity. When there is strong competition, firms have no incentive to set wages below the market rate, because if they do, they will lose their workers to competing firms. Greater economic opportunity and fairness for workers.  In a competitive labor market, wages are determined by the market, and are not subject to companies’ abuse of outsized bargaining power. But when firms have wage-setting power, they have an incentive to pay the lowest wage that workers are willing to accept. As a result, market power not only shifts revenues away from labor, toward managers and inflated profits; it also means that individuals who start out facing greater obstacles and fewer opportunities often end up being paid the least. Competition can help equalize wages across workers with similar skills and ensure a level playing field for all workers. ADDITIONAL DETAIL ON NEW STEPS BEING ANNOUNCED TODAY Addressing Gross Overuse of Non-Compete Agreements Earlier this year, the White House and Department of Treasury’s Office of Economic Policy released reports highlighting the negative impacts of unnecessary non-compete agreements and the actions states are taking to address them. According to survey data, one in five U.S. workers is bound by a non-compete agreement, including 14 percent of workers making less than $40,000 per year. A considerable proportion of non-compete agreements signed by both low- and high-wage workers come at the expense of wage growth, entrepreneurship, and broader economic growth. Researchers have found that states that strictly enforce non-compete agreements have 10 percent lower average wages for middle-aged workers than states that do not. Today, the White House is announcing several new steps to reduce the misuse of non-compete agreements. In addition to encouraging states to take action, the Administration also calls on Congress to pass federal legislation to eliminate non-competes for workers under a certain salary threshold, as in the Mobility and Opportunity for Vulnerable Employees Act (MOVE Act), originally sponsored by Senators Al Franken and Chris Murphy, and in the Limiting the Ability to Demand Detrimental Employment Restrictions Act (LADDER Act). We call on Congress to consider this critical issue and the potential economic consequences of inaction. Best Practices and Call to Action for States on Non-Compete Agreements. Today, elected officials in Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, New York, and Utah have signed on to support a call-to-action for state non-compete reform, below: White House Best Practices for State Non-Compete Reform                   In order to reduce the misuse of non-compete agreements in states that choose to enforce them, the White House is calling on state policymakers to join in pursuing best-practice policy objectives, including one or more of the following: Ban non-compete clauses for categories of workers, such as workers under a certain wage threshold; workers in certain occupations that promote public health and safety; workers who are unlikely to possess trade secrets; or those who may suffer undue adverse impacts from non-competes, such as workers laid-off or terminated without cause. Improve transparency and fairness of non-compete agreements by, for example, disallowing non-competes unless they are proposed before a job offer or significant promotion has been accepted (because an applicant who has accepted an offer and declined other positions may have less bargaining power); providing consideration over and above continued employment for workers who sign non-compete agreements; or encouraging employers to better inform workers about the law in their state and the existence of non-competes in contracts and how they work. Incentivize employers to write enforceable contracts, and encourage the elimination of unenforceable provisions by, for example, promoting the use of the “red pencil doctrine,” which renders contracts with unenforceable provisions void in their entirety. State-by-State Explainer of Non-Compete Laws. To educate workers, employers, policymakers and advocates, the White House is issuing a report about existing state laws and some of the key issues related to non-compete agreement reform. Employer Support to Eliminate Non-Competes for Most or All Employees. Across the country, businesses are eliminating non-compete agreements in favor of more targeted options. They are supporting a shift in non-compete policy because they recognize that fewer, more targeted non-compete agreements will likely increase their pool of available talent and improve innovation. New Surveys to Examine Prevalence and Impact of Non-Competes, including: Largest data collection effort ever undertaken on non-compete agreements. PayScale, a company that provides compensation data and software to employers and employees, has committed to collect new data to support the effort to better measure and understand the use of non-compete agreements. This commitment will include anonymously surveying thousands of firms on non-compete practices and asking millions of employees about their non-compete status. In-depth survey on non-compete use. This upcoming year, researchers Evan Starr, Natarajan Balasubramanian, and Martin Ganco, with the support of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, plan to field an in-depth survey about non-compete usage and its impact on firm growth, employee mobility, and entrepreneurship. Curbing Collusion among Firms to Suppress Wages and Limit Worker Mobility Increased market concentration of firms can also facilitate collusive agreements that allow a small number of employers, who compete over the same workforce, to artificially suppress wages below market rates or agree not to hire one another’s employees. Like price fixing in product markets, collusion among employers to reduce wages is illegal in the U.S. and subject to anti-trust laws. These types of agreements eliminate competition in the same irredeemable way as agreements to fix the prices of goods or allocate customers, which have traditionally been criminally investigated and prosecuted as cartel conduct. As FTC Chairwoman, Edith Ramirez puts it, “Competition is essential to well-functioning markets, and job markets are no exception.” In 2014, eight Silicon Valley employers settled a civil class action suit for $415 million for allegedly colluding to suppress the wages of programmers and engineers.  Specifically, the suit pointed to evidence of "no-poaching" arrangements in which the firms agreed not to engage in competitive recruiting of each other's workforces.  Other suits, filed in five metropolitan areas across the country, have alleged collusive behavior among hospitals to suppress the wages of nurses. For example, in Detroit, eight hospitals reached settlements that amounted to roughly $90 million in total for alleged collusion to lower wages below market rates. This past week, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced new guidance aimed at combatting collusive behavior in the employment arena. Additionally, in a recent speech, Acting Assistant Attorney General Renata Hesse highlighted existing DOJ policy that “a merger that gives a company the power to depress wages or salaries to reduce the prices it pays for inputs is illegal whether or not it also gives that company the power to increase prices downstream.” Antitrust Guidance and Hotline for Human Resources Professionals to Identify and Report Wage Collusion. Human Resources (HR) professionals are often in the best position to ensure that their companies’ hiring practices comply with the law. Last week, the DOJ and the FTC released guidance for HR professionals for how to spot and report collusion among competing employers that may violate the antitrust laws. In the guidance, DOJ announced that going forward it will criminally investigate allegations that employers have agreed among themselves on employee compensation or not to solicit or hire one another’s employees. In the press release announcing the guidance, Acting Assistant Attorney General Renata Hesse stated: “HR professionals need to understand that these violations can lead to severe consequences, including criminal prosecution. The newly released joint guidance provides HR professionals with information to prevent violations and report potentially unlawful activity, furthering the Justice Department’s commitment to protect workers from harmful conduct that stifles competition.” Building on Progress Today’s actions build on a series of steps the Administration has taken to reduce barriers to fair wages and labor practices, including: Raising the minimum wage. It has been nearly a decade since Congress last took action to raise the minimum wage, which remains at $7.25 per hour. Since the President started calling for a higher minimum wage in 2013, 18 states and DC have taken action to raise wages, which CEA estimates will benefit over 7 million people by 2017. Over 60 cities and counties have also taken action on their own. These increases help push back against downward pressure on wages. Expanding paid sick leave. Policies that support minimum benefits are an important complement to minimum wage laws, especially when employers have enhanced power in the labor market. That is why President Obama expanded paid sick leave to federal employees with new children and to federal contract workers to care for themselves, a family member, or another loved one. He continues to call on Congress to pass legislation that guarantees most Americans the chance to earn up to seven days of paid sick leave each year—and urges states, cities and businesses to act where Congress has not. Supporting worker voice. When workers have a say in their wages and working conditions, they can help ensure that they see a fair share of the economic returns to their labor. In October 2015, the Administration underscored the importance of worker voice by bringing together workers, employers, unions, worker advocates, and others to the White House Summit on Worker Voice. Reforming occupational licensing requirements and improve portability across states. In 2015, the White House, Treasury Office of Economic Policy, and Department of Labor issued a report on evidence that occupational licensing requirements raise the price of goods and services, restrict employment opportunities, and make it more difficult for workers to take their skills across state lines.  Following this report, the Administration has worked with Congress, state legislators, and experts to draft and present a series of best practices to help state and local governments better tailor their occupational licensing laws. To date, legislators in at least 11 states have proposed no fewer than 15 reforms in line with these recommendations, and four state bills have passed so far. Reforming land use regulations. Over-burdensome land use regulations have made it hard for housing markets to respond to growing demand, jeopardizing housing affordability for working families and limiting GDP growth by stifling labor mobility to the most productive regions. Earlier this year, the White House released a Housing Development Toolkit that highlights the steps communities have taken to modernize their housing strategies and expand options and opportunities for hardworking families.

Donald Trump's Get-Out-The-Vote Problem Could Cost Republicans Bigly

WASHINGTON ― Barring a massive shift in a number of states over the next two weeks, Donald Trump will lose the presidential election and it won’t even be close. The suspense now is how bad will Nov. 8 be for Republicans down-ballot, and the early indication is that ― thanks to Trump ― it could be really bad. In the final stretch, Trump’s closing argument is that the election is rigged, the media is corrupt, and other Republicans have sold him out. It’s a perfect concoction for negative GOP turnout, particularly if you add a shoddy get-out-the-vote operation.  “Donald Trump’s plan to turn out Republicans is going about as well as his debate prep and early morning tweetstorms,” Meredith Kelly, the national spokeswoman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told The Huffington Post on Monday. “Trump repels traditional Republicans who cannot bring themselves to vote for this unfit and unhinged man, and despite having developed a group of dedicated supporters in the Republican base, he has managed to convince them that the election is rigged and their vote won’t make a bit of difference.” “In all scenarios,” Kelly added, “Donald Trump and House Republicans lose.” Yes, Trump is headed for a loss. He even seems to know it. But a combination of factors ― generously carved out districts, for one, some Democratic recruitment failures, for another ― might stem the tide of GOP losses in the House and limit losses in the (for now) Republican-controlled Senate. Most analysts not named House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) expect Democrats to pick up somewhere between 12 and 20 seats in the House and take control of the Senate, either because they actually win a majority in that chamber or because a Vice President Tim Kaine would get to break ties. But the prospect of a wave election flipping the House still seems like a bit of a long shot. As The Washington Post’s Stuart Rothenberg put it, the generic ballot between Democrats and Republicans suggests healthy ― but not crazy ― gains for Democrats. Recent national polls show Democrats with an advantage on the generic ballot ranging from 3 to 6 points. That is larger than the Democrats’ 2-point advantage in the October 2012 NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll (when Democrats gained eight seats) or the Democrats’ 4-point advantage in the October 2014 poll (when the GOP gained 13 seats). However, large Democratic waves in 2006 and 2008 followed October NBC News-Wall Street Journal polls that showed Democrats with a generic advantage of 15 points and 13 points respectively — advantages not close to the current numbers. The only way for Democrats to get close to those numbers is if the electorate that shows up on Nov. 8 is not representative of the polling. Luckily for Democrats, that remains a possibility.  “We don’t know how bad the Trump effect is going to be on turnout,” one Democratic operative told HuffPost on Monday, “which makes it difficult to get an accurate representation of what the electorate is going to look like on Election Day.” The operative and other sources spoke on condition of anonymity to more openly discuss the races.   You can measure voter enthusiasm, but even that doesn’t provide a great sense of who shows up to vote. (”It all comes down to turnout” and “the only poll that matters is on Election Day,” as everyone who’s ever been on cable news says.) By the voter enthusiasm measure, though, Trump is plummeting. His 12-point advantage in voter enthusiasm in early September has fallen to a 3-point deficit to Hillary Clinton, whose voters are increasingly fired up. In head-to-head polls, Clinton is pulling so far ahead of Trump that voters may wonder what’s the point of voting, and donors might stop donating. “We are up against a perfect storm of spending from Democratic groups and donors who believe the presidential race is done,” Steven Law, the leader of the Republican PAC Senate Leadership Fund, told the LA Times. On top of Trump’s overall problems, his get-out-the-vote operation is severely lagging behind Clinton’s. An analysis by The Hill over the weekend showed a roughly 4-1 advantage for Democrats on paid staff in states, with Democrats employing 5,138 staffers and Republicans having 1,409. While House and Senate Republicans have their own GOTV operations, both parties rely on the top of the ticket to help get their supporters to the polls. If anything, sources told HuffPost, Republicans rely more on the national operation than Democrats. “They’re not making the same types of investments they would be if they had a robust field operation,” a Democratic aide told HuffPost. Additionally, as Trump falls, his problems ― and thus the problems of Republicans in general ― compound. If you were on the fence about Trump, why give up your ideological purity by going to support a guy who’s going to lose big anyway? If you were already uncomfortable with Trump’s ethics, how are you feeling as more women come forward to accuse Trump of sexual assault? What semblance of a message the GOP nominee does have in the closing days is basically one that won’t appeal to those iffy voters. He’s continued his old, extreme rhetoric, doubled down on his misogyny by arguing that the women accusing him of misconduct aren’t attractive enough, and added new attacks against Republicans like Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).  The message that the Republican establishment is out to get him particularly does harm to both sides of the GOP; Trump supporters might skip over supporting Republicans elsewhere on the ballot, and traditional Republicans, already depressed, might just decide not to vote. In a poll released Tuesday, only 4 percent of voters said the Republican Party is united. While more than 80 percent of Republicans are supporting Trump, according to the HuffPost Pollster average, that support might be soft among a number of GOP voters, and it may lead them to stay home.  And if you were supporting Trump, what’s really the point of voting? “It’s rigged,” isn’t it?  Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Transhumanism And A Presidential Campaign Update

Reflection of Zoltan Istvan, interviewing on the Anonymous podcast via Skype. It's been another busy two weeks in my presidential campaign since my last dispatch. My transhumanist run for the presidency continues to grow. It's unlikely to make a technical difference for the elections of 2016, but maybe in 2020 or 2024, a science and technology-based political platform and candidate could end up a top-three finisher. This week, I made an important announcement in my social media: That I will be voting for myself on November 8th. I may end up advocating for certain candidates near the very end if I think it will help the country forward, but I will vote for myself. And I'll be proud to accept anyone else voting for me too. My last Huff Post dispatch ended by mentioning Jacque Fresco, a Resource Based Economy, and The Venus Project. This week my main article on Fresco and his longtime partner Roxanne Meadows appeared on the front page of Vice (via Motherboard). So far, it's also been translated in a few languages. Here's a few paragraphs from the story: How I met Fresco at The Venus Project this month starts with income taxes--something I hate and aim to one day eliminate altogether for humanity. Fresco doesn't like taxes either. While searching online about taxes, I stumbled upon Fresco's voluminous work: over 80 years of essays, filmed lectures, books, documentaries, models, and architectural drawings. Much of Fresco's work is anchored by his main philosophical idea: a resource-based economy, where there's not only zero taxes, but no ownership or money either. It sounds fanciful, but the more I read about Fresco's work and ideas, the more intrigued I became. Here was a man with a vision, one not dissimilar from my own. The timing of my meeting with Fresco and Meadows was serendipitous. As I neared the end of my US presidential campaign, I was looking to build out the Transhumanist Party's 20-point platform with a more aggressive futurist platform--one that looked not only 10-20 years into the future, as I generally focus on, but one that also examines what could and should happen in 50 years or even the next century. A home at The Venus Project in Florida -- Photo by Zoltan Istvan My coverage of The Venus Project led to one of the largest interviews of my campaign--with group Anonymous. In fact, I believe I'm the only presidential candidate to interview with them this cycle. I had a really interesting time doing it. The Anoncast host and I went entirely through my 20-point political platform. I was excited to the do the interview, and I support groups like Anonymous that are striving to make the world better via unconventional means. Also, via friend Jorge Henrique at ETER9, Portugal's public radio and television channel, RTP, did a story that partially featured my campaign. Special thanks to TV presenters Alvaro Costa and Sergio Sousa at Online 3 for including my campaign in the show. Part of the reason my campaign has been getting bigger has to do with my recent interview on The Rubin Report. My interview came out in three segments, and one segments delved into stem cells. Rubin's toughest question was asking me to explain what happened when George W. Bush basically stopped stem cell funding in America for seven years. I'm highly critical of that decision, since Mr. Bush did that for religious reasons. However, Rubin was right to point out that Mr. Bush did not do that to harm people's health. Unfortunately, for the hundreds of thousands who could've used stem cell technology earlier (but the science wasn't there because we were essentially now seven years behind), the reality was that people suffered from that singular decision. All this brings up a good point that even when Presidents try to follow their conscience, it may turn out that these decisions harm people. It makes me reiterate one of my main campaign points that a first premise of any government and public official must be to always serve the people's health--and not their personal or cultural interest, or their religious background. Also, my interview with Circa News via Ariel Min came out. Circa has an amazing distribution network, since people all across the country saw Circa videos of my campaign on their local news channels. It aired on various local ABC's, CBS, NBC, and some Fox stations. One more large TV segment on my campaign came out via CBC's comedy show The Hour has 22 Minutes--a sort of Canadian version of American The Daily Show. The 22 Minutes team flew out to Florida to film me lecturing to University of Central Florida students. The show sometimes gets nearly a million views, so I was excited to be on it. Comedian Shaun Majumder interviewed me for it. In closing, I should mention two things. 1) The Courier, College of DuPage's student newspaper, endorsed me as the best third party candidate. 2) Transhumanist Party supporter Gerald Shields was publicly appointed council member in Berwyn Heights, Maryland. Shields would be the first Transhumanist Party member in public office. Immediately after the election, I anticipate some major changes in the US Transhumanist Party as leadership at the top changes and new paths for the party begin. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Mental Health in the Workplace - More than Just a Moral Objective, It's Dollars and Sense

In early 2016, Jessica Leber of Fast Company made an impressively strong case for increased corporate investment--time, energy, and money--in mental health workplace initiatives. Leber's piece, entitled "Fixing Mental Health In The Workplace Requires A Lot More Than A Yoga Room" cited an alarming 2015 study from Harvard and Stanford University business schools which found that health problems stemming directly from job-related stress--ranging from long hours to the burdens of having no insurance and doing shift work--likely contribute to about 120,000 deaths a year and $190 billion a year in health care costs. Leber's piece also noted that depression alone is estimated to cost the U.S. $210 billion a year, half of which are workplace costs including missed days and reduced productivity and by 2020, the World Health Organization estimates that depression will be the second leading cause of disability worldwide. Given what we know now as both employers and employees, why are we not working together collectively to change how we view mental health in the workplace? Michael Becker recently sat on an expert panel and spoke about the subject on behalf of the Stephanie Becker Fund, a non-profit organization that promotes mental health and physical health parity in the workplace. He said, "Emotional wellness in the workplace is a growing yet underserved need that is addressable. Improving emotional health in the workplace not only makes for good public policy, but genuinely benefits both employees and employers. While investing in emotional health represents an upfront cost for companies, doing so pays meaningful and long-term dividends, in terms of well-being, productivity, and ultimately profits. In other words, focusing on workplace mental health is no longer simply a moral objective, but in a capitalist society (for better or for worse), it should be a fiscal priority, as well. Another 2016 article, this one by US News, cited a published study stating that every $1 spent by governments on mental health treatment generates an average net benefit of $4, representing an impressive return on investment. Two companies that stand out as outlets to change the conversation and education around workplace mental health are: Docz and The Carson J. Spencer Foundation's Working Minds program. Docz, who recently co-hosted a workplace mental health symposium with the Stephanie Becker Fund at the Microsoft Store in New York City, is a newly-launched digital health startup that revolutionizes the mental health landscape by making finding support easy and fast for those affected by mental health issues. Docz is a free and anonymous mobile community where one can ask questions or give advice to others. All advice is expert-verified and Docz is already being adapted to fit the needs of small, medium, and large scale businesses. The Carson J. Spencer Foundation's Working Minds program provides businesses with the tools and resources to identify and respond to friends, family members, and co-workers who may be experiencing suicidal thoughts or feelings. These two early adopters are doing great work but we need more companies and non-profits to fill the void in making mental health a priority in a place where adults spend a great deal of their waking life. Will making workplace mental health education commonplace be difficult? Probably. But it's almost always difficult to get anything of importance off the ground--charitable causes, social justice movements, your old 1979 Chevy Nova (okay, scratch that last one). As a serial entrepreneur, I've had to invest in my own mental wellness, in addition to the mental wellness of employees and even partners. This investment in my mental health has been a big reason why my company has been able to grow over 25% each year for the past five years. I've learned when to pull back with work, how to set boundaries and manage my self-care (both leading to greater productivity), and when and how to check in on employees to make sure they are physically and mentally well. Yes, in the short term, focusing on mental health takes time away from "selling," "growing the business," and "strategic planning." But this single step back ensures that we can take two steps forward in a thoughtful, timely, and healthful manner. Employers and managers in the workplace: your motto is perhaps, "always be selling"--and, as a business owner, I know this pressure all too well. But we need to amend that motto to include "always be helping" with respect to our employees. Physical help and healthcare have long been the focus because of a physical wound's visible nature. However, psychological wounds and manageable stressors should also be included when we're working to help our employees be their best selves inside and outside of the workplace. If you don't have your (mental) health--you don't have anything. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Gunmen Launch Attack On Police Academy In Quetta, Pakistan

QUETTA, Pakistan (Reuters) - Gunmen stormed a Pakistani police training academy in the southwestern city of Quetta late on Monday night, wounding up to a dozen recruits, officials said. Reports from police sources of hostages could not be immediately confirmed. Some 200 trainees are stationed at the facility, officials said. “Around five terrorists entered police training center and they have taken police recruits (at) gunpoint,” a senior security official in Quetta said, on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press. No militant group immediately claimed responsibility for the assault. Mir Sarfaraz Bugti, home minister of Baluchistan province, of which Quetta is the capital, confirmed early on Tuesday that at least five or six gunmen had attacked a hostel where police recruits were staying. The attack appeared well coordinated, with senior law enforcement agencies saying that assailants had fired at the police training center from five different points. Later, the attackers entered the center’s hostel where around 200 to 250 police recruits were resting and sleeping, the security officials said. By about 1 a.m. Pakistan time, at least three explosions had been reported at the scene by local media, but there was no immediate word of any additional casualties. Gunfire could still be heard, media said. The Police Training Centre covers about an acre of land located about 13 kilometers outside the main city of Quetta. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Украинские хакеры выложили в сеть переписку представителей партий "Удар" и "Батькивщина"

БРЮССЕЛЬ, 16 марта. /Корр. ИТАР-ТАСС Денис Дубровин/. Украинская ячейка международной сети Anonymous и группа хакеров, назвавшаяся "КиберБеркут", выложили в интернет электронную переписку представителей руководства украинских партий "Удар" и "Батькивщина". Архивы с перепиской содержат сообщения, которыми обменивались региональные лидеры партий в Киеве, Львове, Донецке, Харькове и Луганске. В сообщениях, в частности, обсуждается организация силовых провокаций на Восточной Украине с участием активистов "Правого сектора". Никаких независимых подтверждений этой информации, добытой незаконным путем, не существует. Группа украинских хакеров, назвавшаяся "КиберБеркут", в ночь с субботы на воскресенье обрушила основные информационные ресурсы НАТО, которые более 12 часов работали с серьезными перебоями. Их функционирование восстановилось в полной мере только после того, как хакеры распространили заявление "о прекращении DDoS-атаки на ресурсы НАТО". Пока неизвестно, смогли ли эксперты по киберобороне НАТО установить источник атаки и будет ли альянс выдвигать судебные претензии хакерам. Распределенный отказ в обслуживании, известный под английской аббревиатурой DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service), - это один из наиболее распространенных методов хакерского нападения, цель которого - перегрузить системы огромным количеством запросов, автоматически направляемых одновременно с большого числа компьютеров.

Хакеры Anonymous напали на Израиль

Сайты правительственных организаций Израиля подвергаются кибератакам хакеров, передает Associated Press со ссылкой на израильские СМИ.Представители организации Anonymous сообщили в социальной сети Twitter о начале "операции Израиль". Как стало известно, атакам подверглись сайты министерства обороны и министерства образования Израиля, а также целый ряд сайтов израильских банков.Утверждается, что ни один сайт не прекратил своей работы, и все атаки были до сих пор успешно отражены.По словам представителей Anonymous, атаки на сайты правительства Израиля являются ответом на авиаудар, нанесенный израильскими военно-воздушными силами по сектору Газа 3 апреля 2013г.Напомним, в ноябре 2012г. Израиль провел в секторе Газа, находящемся под контролем палестинского движения "Хамас", восьмидневную военную операцию "Облачный столп".
