As Murder And Mayhem Skyrocket, Chicagoland Police Partner Up With 'Anti-Violence' Group CeaseFire

As #MurderAndMayhem Skyrocket, Chicagoland Police Partner Up With 'Anti-Violence' Group CeaseFire
from suntimes.com: The Interrupters,” the acclaimed documentary about the Chicago-based anti-violence group CeaseFire, caught Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s attention. Worried about the city’s rising tide of bloodshed, Emanuel was impressed with CeaseFire’s strategy of sending ex-felons into the streets to mediate gang conflicts and stop shootings.

The mayor decided to put his police superintendent, Garry McCarthy, and CeaseFire founder Gary Slutkin in the same room a few months ago to discuss a possible partnership, according to City Hall sources. The negotiations were anything but smooth.

Behind the scenes, McCarthy complained about having to deal with an organization full of ex-felons that refuses to share information with the police department about brewing conflicts. And CeaseFire initially balked at demands the police department placed on the group before they could become partners.

But on Tuesday, police officials and CeaseFire announced they had forged a deal. CeaseFire will receive $1 million in city money to put 20 workers each in the Grand-Crossing District on the South Side and the Ogden District on the West Side, both of which have seen recent spikes in gang-related killings. The pilot program will begin July 13.

Ham Radio Operators Nationwide Hold 24-Hour 'Field Day' Drill

Ham Radio Operators Nationwide Hold 24-Hour 'Field Day' Drill
from islandpacket.com: Using slingshots and a crossbow, ham radio operators strung wires through a tree in the parking lot of Beaufort Memorial Hospital on Saturday to fire up a portable radio station and keep it going for 24 hours.

By noon Sunday, members of the Beaufort Radio Amateur Group still were sitting in folding chairs under canopies as the generator hummed and voices from across the world streamed in through the airwaves.

The group, along with 35,000 "hams" across the United States and other countries, was participating in Field Day, an exercise organized by the American Radio Relay League. The idea is to set up temporary stations in unlikely locations and transmit from the field continuously for one entire day and into the next.

Some ham radio operators treat Field Day as a competitive event and try to make as many contacts as possible. But members of the Beaufort radio group see it as a way to keep communication skills sharp if they are needed for an emergency, said vice president David Jennings.

In the immediate aftermath of events such as natural disasters, ham radios often are the only the game in town, Jennings said.

"America's Got Talent" Singer Believed He Was Injured In War

America's Got Talent Singer Believed He Was Injured In Warfrom ap: A soldier-turned-TV contestant whose claims of being injured in battle were dismissed by military officials says he believed he was telling the truth, but he doesn't know what is real. Timothy Michael Poe appeared on Monday's episode of the NBC show "America's Got Talent," claiming he was injured by a grenade in Afghanistan in 2009, though Minnesota National Guard records don't support his claims. Poe, who now lives in Texas, cried in portions of an interview aired Friday on WFAA-TV in Dallas. He told the station he doesn't know why he "believed things that happened to me, and they might not have?" Poe won over the crowd and celebrity judges on the talent show with a moving story about how he blocked a grenade blast to save his buddies. He said the blast broke his back and left him with a brain injury. The National Guard has said military records show Poe wasn't injured in combat in Afghanistan, and he has been criticized — especially by veterans — since he made his injury claims. Poe also provided a photo to the NBC talent show of a soldier he passed off as himself, though the photo actually shows Staff Sgt. Norman Bone in Afghanistan in 2006. Bone said Friday that Poe's alleged lies disrespect all men and women who've served in the military, and he called Poe's actions "completely wrong." Poe's fiance, Carrie Morris, has said Poe accidentally submitted the photo because he was rushed. Poe has declined requests for interviews from the Associated Press.

Lauryn Hill's Taxing Problem: "Manipulated and controlled by a media protected military industrial complex"

from vigilantcitizen.com: Several newspapers have reported that Lauryn Hill was in trouble with the government for not filing taxes from 2005-2007. While I do not know (nor care) about her financial status and her tax paying habits, I found Hill’s response to the charges quite compelling. In a first public statement in years, Hill describes the control, manipulation and exploitation of the music industry and her efforts to get away from it all:
"Addressing critical issues like pop culture cannibalism or its manipulation of the young at the expense of everything, was frowned upon and discouraged by limiting funding, or denying it outright. When one has a prolific creative output like I did/do, and is then forced to stop, the effects can be dangerous both emotionally and psychologically, both for the artist and those in need of that resource. It was critically important that I find a suitable pathway within which to exist, without being distorted or economically strong-armed."
As it is always the case when celebrities reject and pull away from the industry, Hill has been often portrayed as crazy and unstable in the media. However, those who know about the dark side of the industry know that Hill did the only SANE thing one can do in her situation: Get out.
