Center for Deliberative Democracy Policy 2010 - Jobs and a living wage Right now unemployment is skyrocketing and the government is doing little about it. Our policy is to fight for a fair, stable and sustainable economy. Top bankers continue to pocket your money in the form of unearned bonuses, while factories, firms and farms are forced to lay off more and more workers by the day, week and month. This must end. Our major and immediate priority is the creation of an extra million jobs and training places. These jobs will provide our country with the vital 21st century infrastructure it needs, including an efficient public transport system, homes that are warm and cheaper to run and much lower energy costs for businesses. The gap between rich and poor in the UK has never been wider and it continues to get worse. We are demanding the introduction of a 'Living Wage'. We will also fight for a fair financial deal with community banks, credit unions and mutuals to provide realistic loans to families and small businesses.

Equality by lot | The blog of the Kleroterians Body Detox: The Whole30 My ears perk up whenever I hear about natural ways to mend health issues ever since I started having stomach problems a couple years ago. Recently I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about the Whole30, so I thought I’d do a little research on it, as well as share some insight from some girls I know who’ve tried the program. The Whole30 is a program that is meant to change your life through the foods you eat – in 30 days. A “nutritional reset,” if you will. The program was created by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig of Whole9, and according to their site, is “designed to help you restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, calm systemic inflammation and put an end to unhealthy cravings, habits, and relationships with food.” What to Eat The Whole30 focuses on a paleo-based diet. What Not to Eat While the Whole30 focuses more on what to eat, here are some things to avoid: added sugar of any kind, alcohol/tobacco of any kind, grains, legumes, dairy, and white potatoes. It Starts With Food

¡Democracia real YA! | No somos mercancías en manos de políticos y banqueros MFT Licensing Boards Licensure or certification laws for marriage and family therapists (MFTs) provide a mechanism for the public and third-party payors to identify qualified practitioners of marriage and family therapy. Marriage and Family Therapists who obtain the MFT license or certificate have met high educational and clinical experience criteria. All states require a Master's or Doctoral degree and supervised clinical experience. The most common titles used for this license are "Marriage and Family Therapist" or "Marital and Family Therapist." There are an estimated 48,000 marriage and family therapists in the United States and Canada. In the United States, the number of states regulating marriage and family therapy has grown rapidly--from 11 in 1986 to 50 in 2009 (plus the District of Columbia). In Canada, currently two provinces have passed legislation to regulate the practice of marriage and family therapy.

What price the new democracy? Goldman Sachs conquers Europe - Business Analysis & Features - Business This is the most remarkable thing of all: a giant leap forward for, or perhaps even the successful culmination of, the Goldman Sachs Project. It is not just Mr Monti. The European Central Bank, another crucial player in the sovereign debt drama, is under ex-Goldman management, and the investment bank's alumni hold sway in the corridors of power in almost every European nation, as they have done in the US throughout the financial crisis. Even before the upheaval in Italy, there was no sign of Goldman Sachs living down its nickname as "the Vampire Squid", and now that its tentacles reach to the top of the eurozone, sceptical voices are raising questions over its influence. Simon Johnson, the former International Monetary Fund economist, in his book 13 Bankers, argued that Goldman Sachs and the other large banks had become so close to government in the run-up to the financial crisis that the US was effectively an oligarchy. This is The Goldman Sachs Project. Shared illusions, perhaps?
