Last week – November 15th to be precise – author and contributor to War Is A Crime.org, David Swanson wrote a piece that knocked me sideways. Not so much for the story but for the implications. If Germany can say ‘No’ to the ultimate drug, then surely , other nations will follow. This a triangle situation: Israel and America are the world’s top peddlers of Death from Above and Germany is a super power in that its economic might is bolstered by it global credibility.

Frann Michel reports on Portland Public School and Portland Association of Teachers contract talks. Teachers are not fighting for wages, so much as work and ultimately learning conditions -- including class size, standardized testing, and prep-time during the day. She shares stories from teachers, students, and parents, exposing the District's false narrative of greedy teachers and austerity. She points out that the K-12 public school system, while not perfect, is not fundamentally broken as such and its problems cannot be traced to organized/unionized teachers, or else wealthier school districts and places like Finland would have comparably bad rates of success. 8:23 minutes (7.68 MB)
