The Decision to Handle Rejection

Rev. Manson B. Johnson

The Big Idea: Endurance is the key to achieving challenging goals in life.“Man’s rejection can be God’s direction.  God sometimes uses the rejection of hateful people to move us to a new place or assignment–where we wouldn’t have thought of going on our own.

The Case for Local Precincts: Democracy’s Most Valuable Possession

Written by D. J. Sinclair on Monday, 17 November 2014 13:17.

Recently, a rising sentiment among some political critics calls for the minimization, if not the dissolution, of the local American voting precinct. At times described prophetic, this group perceives the recent election’s results as a lack of positive effect generated by our smallest democratic unit. But instead of asking for the means to strengthen precincts, as we might imagine, their projected model is something akin to a passkey by which--through their proposed reduction--only the correct few will have access to higher up political arenas.

Where’s My Patronage? Black Voters Search for Benefits

Written by Peter Grear on Thursday, 13 November 2014 17:37.

Educate, organize and mobilize -- Since the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s many Blacks have been loyal and consistent voters, albeit at levels that need to increase.  During our most recent elections and other elections going back to the sixties, many Black voters have questioned whether their votes would make a difference, and if so, what they would get as a result of electing people to office.  In other words, are rewards of voting equal to the value of voting?

Written by Mary L. Datcher, Special to the NNPA from the Windy City Word on Tuesday, 11 November 2014 13:58.

CHICAGO – It was a day that no mother or father ever wants to experience – a call informing them that their child has been murdered. The moment a child enters the world; most parents take on the responsibility of protector, nurturer, provider and gatekeeper. Often, parents prepare themselves for the tables to reverse when one day they will be the ones cared for by their adult children, looked after and worldly provisions passed on to their heirs along with their final wishes.

School Environment Affects Teacher Expectations

Written by Featured Organization on Tuesday, 11 November 2014 14:06.

The school environment in which teachers work is related to their expectations of students, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Montreal. "It is known that low teacher expectations are negatively associated with student achievement and school effectiveness. While we know that expectations are primarily determined by the specific characteristics of teachers, we have shown that the school environment also plays a determining role," says lead author of the study, Marie-Christine Brault, a post-doctoral researcher at the university’s Institut de recherche en santé publique de l'Université de Montréal (IRSPUM).

Startups Should Seek Quality Not Quantity for Partnerships

Written by Featured Organization on Tuesday, 11 November 2014 13:39.

However, as a startup adds more outside partners, eventually the firm’s internal capability will weaken and the cost of maintaining its alliances will exceed any remaining benefits.
