Talent market update: legal & compliance

first_img Tags: Online Gambling Email Address Talent market update: legal & compliance The value of igaming experience remains high, especially for those with qualified legal status and familiarity with any of the world’s major gaming territories. Talent supply is predictably extremely short in newly regulating territories or those in growth, including the USA, Sweden, the Netherlands, Portugal and elsewhere. Malta’s employers have a continual requirement for entry- and mid-level fraud, AML and compliance executives. Additional benefits offered to sweeten these job offers include travel allowances, on-site chefs, annual wellness funds and team outings. Fintech employers are increasingly competing with igaming for compliance talent, and often benefit from being able to offer 9-5 hours (versus’ igaming’s requirement for shift work).Kerry Gillitt is managing consultant – legal and compliance, for Pentasia. Catherine Clark is a senior consultant in Malta for the search specialist. Kerry Gillitt and Catherine Clark provide insight on the 3Q19 headline trends in the area of legal & compliance, where competition for talent has driven salaries up around 10% year-on-year 1st October 2019 | By Stephen Carter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Kerry Gillitt (left) and Catherine Clark (below right) provide insight on the 3Q19 headline trends in the area of legal & compliance, where competition for talent has driven salaries up around 10% year-on-yearBy nature, the legal and compliance talent market tends to be slower than most. Legal teams often benefit from low staff turnover and growth tends to be steady.Department sizes vary from 1-4 for a mid-sized operator up to 20-30 for international businesses.There are two key arenas where competition for talent becomes more acute. The first is for mid-level, gaming specialist lawyers – in low supply and rarely on the market. The second is for ‘first-in-the-door’ generalists who can help establish new legal functions within growing start-ups.The most ambitious lawyers work hard to put themselves in a position with broad horizons, workload variety and commercial influence.Start-ups often appeal for this reason, but larger employers have also found success by offering roles that involved increased advisory responsibility, direct access to the CEO and even equity in the business.Salaries are up around 10% year-on-year, rising to rates that many employers – particularly smaller, younger companies – find unpalatable.The value is justified, though, by short market supply and infrequent turnover. Counter offers can be aggressive too; in one recent example, a gaming lawyer received a pay rise from $25,000 to $45,000 to extend their employment.In compliance, the highly changeable European and global regulatory environment is making for challenging conditions.Taking the GB Gambling Commission as an example, compliance professionals feel a disconnect between the great improvements they’ve been delivering and the increasing critical scrutiny the industry is experiencing.Fraud and AML specialists, particularly MLROs, are in growing demand. Requiring specialist knowledge and often involving out-of-hours shift work, these roles can be hard to fill.Employers are working hard to ensure talent pipelines, but increasingly have to compete with employers from outside of industry too.Q3 legal & compliance hiring trends Overall pace of the talent market is relatively slow, adding pressure on employers to move quickly to secure important hires.

Histórica iglesia afroamericana explora la fe y la justicia en…

first_img Rector Albany, NY Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Knoxville, TN El Rdo. Peter Jarrett-Schell, rector, y el Rdo. Gayle Fisher-Stewart, rector asociado, de la iglesia episcopal El Calvario en Washington, D.C. posan para una foto debajo de un cartel de la campaña “La vida de los negros importa”. Foto de Lynette Wilson.[Episcopal News Service – Washington, D.C.] La decisión de desplegar una pancarta de ‘La Vida de los Negros Importa” [Black Lives Matter] en el dintel de la entrada del salón parroquial no resultó fácil para el liderazgo de la iglesia episcopal El Calvario [Calvary Episcopal Church], una iglesia históricamente negra con una reputación de promover la justicia y la acción sociales en el noreste de la capital de EE.UU.“Algunas personas se han sentido ofendidas… y creo que algunas realmente lo aprecian”, dijo el Rdo. Peter Jarrett-Schell, rector de El Calvario, durante una entrevista reciente con Episcopal News Service. La decisión fue “contenciosa” y “no unánime”, expresó él. “También ha sido una oportunidad para el diálogo”.No es raro que El Calvario participe en debates que desafían a la congregación y a la comunidad a pensar y actuar de manera deliberada a favor de la justicia.Calvary ha iniciado conversaciones —contenciosas, difíciles, provocadoras y diferentes— en particular durante los últimos dos años. Los líderes de la iglesia comenzaron a conversar en serio luego de la muerte a tiros de Michael Brown, a manos de un policía, en agosto de 2014 y decidieron convocar un foro para toda la comunidad: “Ferguson: ¿Podía ocurrir aquí?”. El foro reunió a miembros de la iglesia y la comunidad y a oficiales de los cuerpos de orden público.“Fue un apacible intercambio, que Ferguson puede ocurrir aquí si se dieran las debidas circunstancias”, dijo el Rdo. Gayle Fisher-Stewart, rector asociado de El Calvario, y jubilado de 20 años de servicio de la Policía Metropolitana del DC. “Sabemos que el 90 por ciento de todos los disturbios civiles en este país tienen una conexión con la policía; esto no significa que la policía los provoque, sino que la policía está de alguna manera involucrada, y podría ser algo bastante sencillo que hace estallido”.La conversación sobre Ferguson llevó a Fisher-Stewart, recién ordenado sacerdote en noviembre pasado, a crear en El Calvario, con ayuda de una subvención de la Sociedad Episcopal de Evangelización, el Centro para el Estudio de la Fe en la Justicia. La subvención le ha permitido a la iglesia auspiciar foros enfocados en temas relacionados con la participación comunitaria, la raza y la justicia social: la policía en la comunidad, la iglesia negra y espacios blancos vedados para negros, entre otros. Los últimos dos fueron talleres dirigidos por la Rda. Kelly Brown Douglas, autora de Mantente firme: cadáveres negros y la justicia de Dios [Stand Your Ground: Black Bodies and the Justice of God].“Nos damos cuenta aquí en El Calvario de que somos una congregación negra en una denominación predominantemente blanca y hemos actuado de algún modo con una doble personalidad”, dijo Fisher-Stewart, añadiendo que Brown Douglas ayudó a que El Calvario redefiniera su llamado.“La iglesia negra se creó debido a la injusticia. Y es así que volvemos a levantar ese estandarte para hacer justicia, la cual encontramos en la misión de Cristo cuando leyó del rollo de Isaías (Lucas 4:18) en la sinagoga: acerca de hacer justicia, acerca de los pequeñitos”, recalcó ella.Por ejemplo, el foro más reciente se centró en los jóvenes negros (varones), con la siguiente interrogante: ¿Son ellos una especie en peligro de extinción?“Contamos con organizadores comunitarios, activistas y psicólogos, teólogos y educadores para ayudarnos a pensar por qué los jóvenes varones negros están en peligro más allá del problema con la policía, pero también: ¿Qué hemos de hacer para ayudarles a convertirse en el pueblo que Dios les ha llamado a ser?”.Para Brittany Livingston —asistente social de 26 años que asesora fundamentalmente a afroamericanos de escuela intermedia en un colegio parroquial para varones— el “qué” a que Dios ha llamado a ser a los jóvenes negros es el tema a enfocar.“La mayoría de nuestros muchachos son jóvenes afroamericanos y ello puede constituir un reto porque miro sus caritas morenas todos los días y con frecuencia ellos tienen genuinos sentimientos respecto a lo que está pasando”, dijo Livingston, añadiendo que a veces la violencia y la situación general la hace sentir inútil. “Pero ir a trabajar todos los días con esos niñitos me ayuda. Trabajo con ellos día por día y sus vidas me importan día tras día”.Miembros y amigos de la iglesia episcopal El Calvario participaron en “Hagan justicia”, marcha silenciosa y vigilia de oración por la 40ª. Conferencia Anual de la Organización Nacional de Ejecutivos Negros de los Cuerpos Policiales que tuvo lugar en Washington D.C. el 20 de julio. La movilización fue organizada por el Centro para el Estudio de la Fe en Justicia en la iglesia de El Calvario. Foto de Lynette Wilson.2016 deja en muchas personas un sentimiento de desamparo. Julio ha sido un mes fatal, tanto para policías como para afroamericanos en Luisiana, Minnesota y Texas. El domingo 17 de julio, mientras los miembros de El Calvario salían de la iglesia luego de la eucaristía matutina, se difundió la noticia de otro tiroteo mortal, en Baton Rouge, Luisiana; esta vez un ex marine mató a dos policías y a un subalguacil. Fue “la yuxtaposición de estas muertes” lo que “obligó a toda la nación a detenerse y tomar nota”, como escribió  recientemente el Rdo. Charles A. Wynder, diácono y misionero de la Iglesia Episcopal para la justicia social y el compromiso en la defensa (o promoción) social, en un ensayo para The Living Church.Livingston, miembro de toda su vida de El Calvario, dijo que ayuda contar con un lugar para venir a conversar sobre el tema.“De de cada foro o evento comunitario que hacemos, siempre sale algo”, dijo ella. “Ya sea que alguien se te presente después y te diga ‘eh, sé parte de este programa de mentoría’ o veas al Rdo. Gayle y a mi mamá y la iglesia que van a protestar a alguna parte, y luego los domingos oramos por eso, y el Rdo. Schell o el Rdo. Gayle se presentan allí y dicen algo al respecto y así se despeja un poco ese sentimiento de inutilidad”, dijo ella.La madre de Livingston, Ellen Livingston, también asistente social y líder de El Calvario, ha sido testigo de cómo evoluciona también la retórica en torno a Black Lives Matter en las vidas de los jóvenes con los que ella trabaja. Desde la adolescente blanca proveniente de un barrio mixto a la cual sus compañeros le dicen que ella no pertenece: “esta damita está intentando lidiar con algo que es mucho más grande de lo que ella puede imaginar”, dijo Livingston. Hasta el niño negro que asiste a un campamento de verano en una prestigiosa escuela privada donde lo hostigan los estudiantes blancos: “‘Conque la vida de los negros importa’, y lo acosaban [diciéndole] ‘tu vida no importa más que la mía’”.El movimiento Black Lives Matter, al igual que el Centro para el Estudio de la Fe en la Justicia en [la iglesia de] El Calvario, nació en 2013 de la tragedia, esta vez de la absolución de George Zimmerman, coordinador de vigilancia de un barrio, que mató al joven de 17 años Trayvon Martin en una comunidad privada al norte de Orlando, Florida. El movimiento creció a partir de la etiqueta [hashtag] de Twitter #BlackLivesMatter, que llamaba la atención sobre la violencia policial y el vigilantismo contra los negros estadounidenses.El tomar la decisión de colgar la pancarta de Black Lives Matter le correspondió a la responsabilidad de la iglesia como congregación cristiana, dijo Jarrett-Schell.“El Evangelio afirma que todas las vidas importan, pero en este preciso momento vemos de cara al mundo y de nuestra sociedad, que no todas las vidas importan lo mismo y que las vidas de los negros están subvaloradas y eso es poniéndolo delicadamente”, afirmó Jarrett-Schell. “Nosotros como cristianos, si creemos verdaderamente que el Evangelio es portador de buenas nuevas para todas las personas, miramos y vemos que hay un grupo de personas en nuestra inmediata vecindad y en nuestra sociedad, particularmente personas negras, a las que no tratan como hijos de Dios, del modo en que debería ser; luego, tenemos que dar testimonio de eso específicamente”.La matriarca de El Calvario, una mujer de quien dicen que le da cabida a todo el mundo, se opuso al principio a la pancarta de Black Lives Matter, preocupada por lo que pensaría la gente que viniera a la iglesia. Pero luego de pasar por debajo de ella unas cuantas veces, dijo Jarrett-Schell, se dio cuenta de que la pancarta dice que su vida importa y que si alguien discrepa no necesita venir a la iglesia.El movimiento Black Lives Matter sigue al de los ocupas, un movimiento que surgió en Nueva York en 2011 en procura de igualdad económica y social. Así como el movimiento de los ocupas puso al descubierto el problema mundial de la desigualdad económica y social, el de las Vidas Negras ha introducido el racismo en la conversación cotidiana.“Cuando miramos al problema (del racismo) desde el punto de vista nacional e internacional, parece demasiado grande para que podamos hacer algo”, dijo Jarrett-Schell, al preguntarle si algunos de los cambios más significativos tienen lugar en el ámbito de la comunidad. “Y cuando miramos a la historia, lo hacemos hacia estos grandes puntos de inflexión, estos momentos en que el arco de la historia se ha inclinado realmente hacia la justicia, el momento culminante, pero ignoramos el hecho de que siempre ha habido años y años de trabajo comunitario en la base que, en verdad, hicieron posible el momento nacional”.Una ya tensa elección presidencial se ha hecho más tensa según las relaciones raciales rondan en la mente de los estadounidenses; el apoyo a Black Lives Matter, un movimiento con frecuencia malentendido, recorre [todo] el espectro. Sin embargo, la violencia contra los estadounidenses negros no es nada nuevo. Los estadounidenses no negros la vieron por primera en sus salas con la paliza mortal de Rodney King a manos de agentes de la policía de Los Ángeles en 1991 y dominó el comentario social en las letras de la primera composiciones musicales hip hop. Los teléfonos inteligentes equipados con videocámaras han incrementado la frecuencia en que la violencia policial se ha documentado y se ha divulgado.El jefe de la policía de Los Ángeles calificó la muerte de King de aberración, pero la comunidad negra y los oficiales de la policía estaban mejor enterados.“[Dijimos] que ‘la aberración’ era que fuera captado en una película, porque eso ocurre todos los días en Estados Unidos”, dijo Fisher-Stewart, sucede que ahora todo el mundo tiene teléfonos celulares. “Ahora cualquiera puede sacar su teléfono y grabar lo que ha estado pasando siempre respecto a la actuación policial en Estados Unidos.“La crisis siempre ha estado ahí; es omnipresente ahora con la tecnología”. Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Featured Jobs & Calls Racial Justice & Reconciliation TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab La iglesia episcopal El Calvario montó una exposición de 200 camisetas que llevaban el nombre y la fecha de nacimiento y muerte de víctimas de delitos violentos en el área metropolitana del D.C. Foto de Gayle Fisher-StewartMucho antes de que la iglesia decidiera desplegar la pancarta de Black Lives Matter, montaron una exposición de más de 200 camisetas con el nombre y fecha de nacimiento y muerte de víctimas de delitos violentos en el área metropolitana del D.C. La exposición, organizada por Atendiendo el Llamado de Dios [Heeding God’s Call] le pedía a los visitantes que oraran por cada uno de los individuos que habían muerto. La iglesia prepara ahora una nueva serie de conversaciones, que van desde los jóvenes y las relaciones con la fuerza pública hasta la educación posterior a la escuela secundaria, así como emprendimiento y relaciones entre hombres y mujeres.Es imposible sostener una conversación acerca de la violencia policial y los varones negros sin que la conversación no derive hacia el racismo, tanto cultural como institucional, la marginación y la desigualdad económica. Además, los foros y las conversaciones en El Calvario están teniendo lugar sobre el trasfondo del aburguesamiento [o encarecimiento] de la comunidad.“Somos una iglesia que se desplaza [para venir al culto], nuestra comunidad está comenzando a no parecerse en nada a la que conocimos de niños”, dijo Ellen Livingston, que creció a unos 10 o 15 minutos a pie de la iglesia y que luego se mudó a los suburbios. “Esta [iglesia] fue un centro de la comunidad en un tiempo, y nuestra comunidad está cambiando, y [entre tanto, se acentúa] el aburguesamiento y el aislamiento y la marginación de los negros que se han quedado en la ciudad, de manera que queremos ofrecerles apoyo a ellos también”.La iglesia episcopal El Calvario, una iglesia tradicionalmente afroamericana de Washington D.C., está localizada en la zona nordeste de la ciudad que se ha aburguesado. Apenas a una cuadra, en la esquina de las calles H y Sexta NE, están construyendo los apartamentos Apollo,  donde se abrirá un mercado Whole Foods, en el antiguo sitio que ocupara el histórico Teatro Apollo. Foto de Lynette Wilson.A una cuadra de la calle H, que una vez fuera el corazón comercial de la zona negra de Washington D.C. —una calle que se quemó durante las violentas protestas que siguieron al asesinato de Martin Luther King Jr., en 1968— la iglesia, que se estableció como misión en un establecimiento comercial a nivel de la calle en 1901, se aferra ahora a su identidad en un barrio aburguesado y rápidamente cambiante. La capital de la nación, a la que una vez apodaron “Ciudad Chocolate”, ha pasado de tener una mayoría afroamericana de un 70 por ciento hace una generación a menos del 50 por ciento en la actualidad.“La calle H era predominantemente negra, era como el centro urbano de los negros, y la quemaron cuando los disturbios, así como se quemaron porciones de la calle Séptima y de la calle U, las zonas negras de la ciudad fueron las que se quemaron, y ha tomado tiempo para que se restauraran del todo  y han resucitado, han resucitado aburguesadas”, dijo Fisher-Stewart.“Nosotros somos como muchas de las congregaciones tradicionalmente negras en el D.C., que estamos rodeados de personas que no se parecen a nosotros, pero aun así debemos salir y propagarles el Evangelio”.El aburguesamiento de la comunidad está comenzando a cambiar la misión de la iglesia. Cada tercer jueves del mes, El Calvario celebra una reunión para conversar acerca de los cambios en la comunidad, tal como una enorme unidad de condominios que están levantando sobre lo que va a ser un mercado de [la cadena] Whole Foods  en la esquina nororiental de las calles 6 y H, en lo que solía ser un desierto alimentario. Otros cambios son menos obvios para los visitantes y recién llegados.“Estaba conduciendo esta mañana, venia por la avenida West Virginia junto a la Universidad Gallaudet y advertí, en el lado occidental de la calle, donde estaba habituado a que no hubiera acera, apenas un sendero, [y] había ahora una acera… era donde yo solía vivir, solía vivir sobre la avenida West Virginia y nunca hubo acera en ese lado de la calle, uno no podía caminar por esa lado de la calle a menos que anduviera por la calle, pero ahora hay una acera y eso [ha tomado] 50 años”, dijo Kevin Douglas, un miembro antiguo [de la congregación] que creció a corta distancia de la iglesia.No hay escasez de iglesias en la inmediata vecindad, cerca, en la calle H hay una diminuta iglesia cristiana en un inmueble comercial que se identifica sólo con una cruz y que está rodeada de restaurantes, barras de zumos de frutas, estudios de yoga y una boutique que vende artículos para mascotas. El Calvario se ha convertido en una congregación de personas mayores y de mujeres; el dinámico grupo de jóvenes, uno de los más grandes grupos de jóvenes de una iglesia afroamericana de la ciudad en la época de la niñez de Brittany Livingston, hace mucho que desapareció.“Si bien muchos de nuestros miembros se han mudado, todos tienen un gran afecto por este bario, aunque esté cambiando rápidamente”, dijo Jarrett-Schell, que en 2012 se convirtió en el primer rector blanco de la iglesia. “Buscamos ser una congregación que comparta las Buenas Nuevas de Cristo en este lugar específico y en esta específica barriada.“Hay montones de nuevas familias que se han mudado [para el barrio] y esto es realmente complicado para El Calvario… existe una oportunidad ahí, pero hay también muchísima pérdida, los desplazamientos continúan. De modo que cuando decimos que compartimos la Buena Nueva, obviamente estamos hablando en términos espirituales y temporales, hay un mensaje de esperanza que el Evangelio ofrece y queremos que la gente de este barrio lo oiga. Hay expectativas y responsabilidades sociales que esperanzan; queremos que las personas de este barrio oigan acerca de eso también, y queremos que El Calvario sea un lugar que comparta eso”.­– Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

According to the Seoul Institute’s 2015 census data, the average floor area of a newlywed’s home is 72.7m2, and 44.6% of newlyweds live in an apartment building and/or multipurpose commercial/residential building typology. Two thirds of newly-wed couples lease on deposit basis, and 49.3% of those couples pay 100,000,000 to 200,000,000 KRW. The standardized typology and over-inflated housing price limit the parameter of choice in choosing a house for a young couple.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe clients were soon to be married. They asked us to build a house based upon their fundamental questions about how to start a life together, satisfying the basic essentials. They wanted a modest but plentiful life in it. The project emerged from finding a realistic solution for the newlyweds to move into an alternative abode, other than an apartment building or a multi-unit housing.Save this picture!Second Floor PlanThe site is sitting in an entrance location of the Gaemimaeul, one of the few remaining colonies of rag pickers in Seoul, Seodaemoon-ku, Hongjaedong. The walls of this old shanty town are decorated with paintings in attempt to embellish the area, and this exudes a mysterious atmosphere. Two adjacent roads–8m wide on the north-east side and 3 m wide on the north-west–meet in an angle, and the site’s south-west and south-east sides are narrow alleyways only for the pedestrians. The site is steeply sloped, whose level difference is 4m.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinWe concentrated on three main concerns. One was to find ways to read and approach the poor condition of the client’s purchasable land within the limited budget. The other was to integrate the house into the landscape of colorful wall paintings that are contrasted with the existing monotonous shanty town. Lastly, the issue was to conjure up a small but plentiful spatiality within the modest amount of construction budget.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinIt was important to preserve and utilize the site condition as much as we could, in order for the most effective construction process. The house is two-story building that contains minimum programs requested from the client. The floor area is less than 50m2, the maximum area that doesn’t legally require a parking lot.Save this picture!Section 2As the site is surrounded by the roads sloping up towards north, we designed the entrance of the building in between the first and second floors. For the efficient movement and program arrangement of the house, we placed the living room and the kitchen on the second floor, in order for a sufficient natural light and a great view, as the couple spends most of their time in these spaces. Some private rooms and bathroom are on the ground floor.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe house is small but every nook and corner of the space is efficiently used. At the attic of the house is a study or a movie screening room, and the stairs that lead to the attic functions as bookshelves. There is a level difference between the living room and the kitchen so that the cooking table is extended to a seated dining table in the living room.Save this picture!Section 1Our dwelling culture has been occupied by the large scale development along the capitalist logic, which resulted in erasing many of the city’s own characteristics. If we look for solutions to the remaining poor-conditioned small lands in the city, one could anticipate that our dwelling typology be abound again, while reserving the traces of the local qualities. Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinProject gallerySee allShow lessFestival: One Architecture WeekEventGuanghualu SOHO 2 / gmp ArchitektenSelected Projects Share “COPY” CopyHouses•Seoul, South Korea South Korea ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/773879/50m2-house-obba Clipboard 50m2 House / OBBAcenter_img ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeOBBAOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeoulSouth KoreaPublished on September 23, 2015Cite: “50m2 House / OBBA” 22 Sep 2015.

As long as police war exists, Black Lives Matter struggle will not go away

first_imgThe ongoing racist war against Black and Brown people, especially youth, continues to take center stage across the U.S. Even the upcoming presidential campaign cannot escape the justified widespread anger of young people who are the main targets of police terror.  Hillary Rodham Clinton, Democratic presidential candidate, was prevented from speaking for at least 10 minutes during a campaign rally on Oct. 30 in Atlanta, when several demonstrators disrupted her speech with chants of “Black Lives Matter! Black Lives Matter!” Clinton was forced to interject, “Yes, Black Lives do matter” during her talk. Bernie Sanders, another Democratic candidate, has also been confronted by BLM protesters on his campaign trail.  James Earl Rivera, another young victim of police, holding baby.The disruption in Atlanta came four days after a horrific development that made national and international news. That is the violent attack on an African-American teenage woman by a white male deputy in a Spring Valley High School classroom in Columbia, S.C.  Video footage of this attack, captured by students with camera cell phones, went viral on Twitter and other forms of social media. Ben Fields, the police officer, is shown grabbing the young woman around her neck, flipping her backwards out of her seat, throwing her on the floor and then tossing her across the room. She had to be hospitalized. The “excuse” for attacking this teenager was that she was being “defiant” in not putting away her cell phone when the teacher asked her to.The footage also shows some of her predominantly Black classmates covering their eyes, indicating that they did not escape the trauma of seeing their classmate being physically assaulted. Rockland Sheriff Leon Lott fired Fields on Oct. 28 for “violating department policy.” The firing of the deputy, while substantiating the criminality of this act, is not enough. Fields should have been immediately arrested, charged and indicted for this heinous act. However, this particular assault cannot be viewed within a vacuum.  These kinds of assaults on young people — including those as young as 4 years old — by armed police are occurring on a daily basis, as is mass incarceration. The militarization of the schools, especially in oppressed and working-class areas, is an extension of the police occupation of whole communities.  There is a growing chorus in the Black Lives Matter movement and among their supporters to demand that police get out of the schools and that they be disarmed. The police are the criminals, not youth of color.    Thabo Sefolosha sues NYPDThabo Sefolosha, the 31-year-old professional basketball forward with the Atlanta Hawks, announced on Oct. 26 his plans to file a $50 million lawsuit against the New York Police Department. Sefolosha was recently acquitted of all charges by the NYPD following a vicious attack on him and former Hawks player, Pero Antic, outside of a Manhattan night club last April.  Sefolosha, a Black man of South African descent, was charged with disorderly conduct for trying to defend himself against several white police officers, who broke his leg. He missed participating in the playoffs due to the injury. The attack on Sefolosha was caught on video camera.   New York City prosecutors attempted to convince Sefolosha to take a plea bargain in order to settle out of court, as they tried to play down the NYPD’s sordid role and force Sefolosha to admit some semblance of guilt.  Sefolosha, to his credit, decided to have a jury trial. The jurors quickly acquitted him of all phony charges, totally clearing his name. The charges against Antic, who is white, were also dropped.Sefolosha has made clear that the motivation for his lawsuit is to make a strong statement that no one should have to go through what he experienced — which millions of people of color do — when he was subjected to police misconduct and brutality.

They will first redeploy to nearby Kenya, also in East Africa. The U.S. troops have been carrying out extensive drone warfare against the Somali-based organization, al-Shabab. Besides withdrawing troops from Somalia, Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller announced administration plans in November to reduce U.S. troops from 3,000 to 2,500 in Iraq and from 4,500 to 2,500 in Afghanistan by mid-January. Both big capitalist parties have started wars. Don’t expect this to change.Republican as well as Democratic administrations have ordered, since 1990, major aggressive wars against Iraq, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq again, and with smaller forces against Syria, Libya and Ukraine. They have carried out strikes across Africa and engaged in subversion aimed at overthrowing progressive governments in Latin America.The Republican and Democratic Party establishments share a common foreign policy goal: to maintain and if possible increase U.S. economic and strategic U.S. domination of the world. The Pentagon, the State Department, the CIA and various other sectors of the state apparatus enforce this strategy, regardless of which party is running the government. Every invasion, bombing or other intervention by the U.S. has led to enormous suffering in the countries targeted, often with millions of victims. The interventions shower U.S. military industries with profits.While the pretext for these interventions can be human rights, women’s rights or stopping terrorism — most often the real reason is to grab resources, usually oil, or to eliminate a strategic problem.As U.S. imperialism’s economic and moral authority declines compared to  imperialist rivals — Europe, Japan — and especially to socialist China, Washington turns to weapons — where it is still Number One. Thus the drive to maintain hegemony pushes the world toward war no matter which party holds office.Washington sometimes turns to other tools, from hired mercenaries to economic sanctions, to achieve the same goal of domination, with or without subversion or bombing. The sanctions sometimes kill as many people as war does. In 2016, as an election ploy, Trump criticized “Washington’s endless wars,” although he supported them all when they began. After his four years in office, the longest ones — Iraq and Afghanistan — continue. His latest “withdrawals” might look like he’s trying to keep a 2016 election promise — but skepticism is justified.Meanwhile he pumped up the Pentagon budget to record levels, exacerbated a confrontation with China, pulled out of the Intermediate Range Missile treaty with Russia, carried out many more drone strikes in Africa, dumped an historic agreement with Cuba, wrecked the nuclear treaty with Iran and assassinated an important Iranian political leader — or two.Trump’s erratic aggression, however, is no reason to give the Democrats a free ride. Rep. Jim Langevin, a leading House Democrat and chair of the House subcommittee on intelligence and emerging threats, exposed Democratic Party warmongering. He called Trump’s Somalia withdrawal “a surrender to al-Qaida and a gift to China.” (theguardian.com, Dec. 4)For the antiwar and anti-imperialist forces inside the U.S., any debate about Somalia should be seized as an opening to press demands to get U.S. troops out of all its 800-plus worldwide military bases, stop all U.S.-imposed sanctions and end U.S. world domination.
