Divided Democratic Party Debates Its Future as 2020 Looms
Like virtually all Democrats, Tim Ryan is no fan of Donald Trump. But as he speeds through his northeastern Ohio district in a silver Chevy Suburban, the eight-term Congressman sounds almost as frustrated with his own party. Popping fistfuls of almonds in the backseat, Ryan gripes about its fixation on divisive issues and its “demonization” of business owners. Ryan, 44, was briefly considered for the role of Hillary Clinton’s running mate last year. Now he sounds ready to brawl with his political kin. “We’re going to have a fight,” Ryan says. “There’s no question about it.&rd...

UNISON disappointed by pay offer for colleges in England
UNISON has today (Wednesday) expressed disappointment at the pay offer put forward by the Association of Colleges. The union believes the offer of a one per cent increase or £250, whichever is greater, will plunge college staff further into poverty. UNISON head of education Jon Richards said: “This offer is hugely disappointing. It will do little to lift workers out of debt and poverty, particularly as colleges are under no obligation to implement it. “Many college employees have had to take on second jobs or borrow money from family or friends as they struggle to pay their bills. “Colleges know goo...

Athlete Convicted of Rape Can Play in Football Game Despite University ’s Objection
(YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio) — A federal appeals court on Friday declined a university’s request to stop one of its football players convicted of rape as a teenager from playing on the team. The ruling means Ma’lik Richmond, 21, will be allowed to play for Youngstown State University in a game against Central Connecticut State University on Saturday. Youngstown State had asked the appeals court to throw out a Thursday night decision by U.S. District Judge Benita Pearson to temporarily allow Richmond to play football for Youngstown State for at least the next 14 days, including in the 2 p.m. game Saturday.

Schools Seek to Help Immigrants Amid Mixed Signals on DACA
(BERKELEY, Calif.) — Mixed signals from Washington over a possible agreement to preserve protections for young immigrants are increasing anxiety and confusion on college campuses, where the stakes are high. Amid the uncertainty, colleges and universities are stepping up efforts to protect students enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, telling them to be hopeful but plan for the worst. Harvard University has opened a round-the-clock emergency hotline for immigrants in the program. The University of Illinois at Chicago has posted advice on what to do if federal agents show up on campus. UC Ber...

Harvard Says Chelsea Manning Can Still Visit, But Not as a Fellow
The Harvard Kennedy School rescinded its designation of Chelsea Manning as a visiting fellow late Thursday, calling the initial decision “a mistake.” “We invited Chelsea Manning to spend a day at the Kennedy School,” said dean Douglas Elmendorf in a statement, explaining that Manning was invited to talk to interested students, and then give remarks at a forum where attendees could “ask hard questions and challenge what she has said and done.” “We did not intend to honor her in any way or to endorse any of her words or deeds,” Elmendorf continued. Manning served more than six ...

FE pay claim: union writes to college heads asking for a decent pay rise
The letter comes ahead of a National Joint Forum (NJF) meeting on Tuesday 19 September between FE employers and the union. Even if colleges have implemented all of the recommended pay rises, pay for FE workers has fallen in real-terms by 21.5% since 2009. Many colleges have not implemented pay rises for a number of years meaning that pay has fallen even more sharply and members are finding it hard to make ends meet. As UNISON continues its Pay Up Now! campaign and the pressure grows on the government to announce an end to the public sector pay cap, the union believes FE colleges must look to ensure that their staff have a ...

How to Be a Rebel
Every single day, all day long, each of us faces outer expectations and inner expectations — and we must decide, “Should I meet this expectation or resist it?” In a nutshell, my Four Tendencies framework distinguishes how people tend to respond to these expectations: outer expectations (a deadline, a “request” from a sweetheart) and inner expectations (write a novel in your free time, keep a New Year’s resolution). Your response to expectations may sound slightly obscure, but it turns out to be very, very important. Upholders respond readily to outer and inner expectations Questioners ...

The Flawed Mental Healthcare Industry
I’ve spent the bulk of my life living with depression and anxiety. This means that I’ve spent most of my life in and out of doctor’s offices, with different counselor’s, telling my history to different professionals, and seeking out different treatment methods for myself. Sometimes, and unfortunately quite often, things can go awry when you are trying to get quality treatment for yourself. I started my journey with depression and anxiety treatment when I was just 14 years old. My first experience with medication was when a primary care physician prescribed an antidepressant to me.

Are we heading for a nurse and midwife crisis?
The media is full of reports that we are in, or heading towards, a nursing crisis. That is to say, a huge shortage of them. But are we really? We dive into the data to find out. First of all, we need to consider the shortage of nurses that already exists. There isn’t one definitive number for how many nurses we’re currently lacking. One figure frequently cited is 20,000, and analysis by the Health Service Journal said that last October 96% per cent of acute hospitals failed to provide the planned number of registered nurses to cover day shifts. So, what we can say is that we don’t currently have enough. T...
