Mickey Z. “Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.”– This year, as we mark the 83rd birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I have two revolutionary suggestions:Dr. King understood what it meant to commit to a movement. He comprehended and accepted the risks involved. He was fully aware of the urgency.

Inadequate Coverage is Costly: Deafening Silence on Puerto Rican Crisis - Validated Independent News

Inadequate Coverage is Costly: Deafening Silence on Puerto Rican Crisis - Validated Independent News

How the US responds to natural disasters is increasingly dependent on what we see in the news. In times of disaster, fair and thorough coverage is necessary to support recovery. According to Gabriela Thorne of the Nation, “lack of media coverage makes it hard to get as many donations,” leaving those with less air-time to face a slower, more difficult recovery. This is especially true in territories like Puerto Rico. Months after Hurricane Maria, Puerto Ricans still struggle to re-establish normal daily living. Donations are still necessary for their recovery effort, yet establishment news...

Because most international efforts to address climate change do not include women, the resulting policies do not take into account the particular challenges that climate change poses for women and girls. This is ironic because, according to a , women are more likely than men to be concerned...

Obama May Pull the Plug on Most U.S. Nukes - Validated Independent News

If everything goes according to the White Houses’ demands, America could soon see reduction in the nuclear stockpile dramatically, so much so that we would potentially have as few bombs as the earliest days of the Cold War. Obama and his administration are considering a number of proposals by the pentagon to cut the number of deployed nukes, which would decrease the U.S. arsenal to about 300-400 warheads.The recent START treaty with Russia requires both countries to cut their deployed warheads to 1,550, showing that these reduction plans are indeed significant.
