Digital Media Curating as a Big Blue Bird

Posted on April 30, 2014 at 6:00pm 1 Comment

Some rules are meant to be broken to protect your personal space.  In this regard I have learned from teachers who assume Avatar identities to communicate with friend in social media.  

I have done the opposite.  At this time tweets from @FreemanWPAATV are mine and I do 99% of the Outreach communication from the organization I manage under this pseudonym. I also wear the costume at community events to increase our awareness with the next generation.…

Work Life Balance and Productivity

Posted on April 24, 2014 at 10:57am 0 Comments

Work Life balance is even more challenging if you work in a non-profit that you are passionate about: And work-life balance is a personal responsibility --- right?  In my paying day job I was totally out of balance and the old habits are not easy to shed in my encore choices. 

So I will travel to #NHV from #w06492 to stretch my mind today at The Writer's Circle. 

Before doing so let me share a good read on What is Productivity:  …

In Search of the Tie That Binds

What is the tie that binds people on a block? How did most North Americans in a very short period of time become isolated in space? For people interested in collective/communal decision making, several communities in the U.S. and Canada are experimenting with ways to create ties among their citizens.

Research Validates Collaborative Crime Strategies

In some communities, there is a sense that crime is insurmountable. As part of our occasional series on community development research, LISC's research chief, Chris Walker, says that the data tells another story. “The sense of futility that pervades some conversations about safety is wildly misplaced,” he writes in his latest blog. He points to outcomes research that details the success of place-based strategies. The challenge, he says, lies in cutting them to fit local circumstances.

ESPN and LISC Reopen Gym in Harlem

Will the next great NYC ball player start here? Who knows but for this summer, middle and high school kids in Harlem and across the city will have a new gym for a 12-week hoops clinic and basketball tournament. The basketball court, inside Democracy Prep Harlem Charter School in New York City, was renovated with a new floor as part of ESPN and LISC’s Home Court program, which aims to improve the quality and accessibility of neighborhoods gyms. The NBA and NBA Cares joined in to provide equipment and uniforms for the grand re-opening.

Bridging the Opportunity Gap

The unemployment rate is at a record low, but millions of Americans still have difficulty finding a living wage job. The challenge is especially acute for people returning to their communities after incarceration. A new $4.5 million grant to LISC from the U.S. Department of Labor will expand services at LISC's Financial Opportunity Centers to address the particular challenges they face and, in the process, reduce recidivism, make communities safer, and boost local economic activity.
