We Need to Remember and Never Especially Now.

Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach: History

A PLEA TO THE CITY On November 27, 1984, approximately 500 people packed a meeting of the Miami Beach Planning Board. Dozens of Holocaust survivors from across South Florida were bused in for the meeting, many making emotional pleas to the Board and hoping to sway votes. “I lost five sisters and five brothers,” 79-year-old Clara Linder said in Yiddish through a translator, The Miami Herald reported. “They were all killed.” Machela Oksenhenbler, 80, pulled up her sleeve to show a grainy tattoo on her forearm bearing the numbers 54092, put there by the Nazis.

opportunities: "The second purpose is to educate and inform everyone about the history of the Jewish people, especially from the time in which they lived in Eastern Europe, to the years they spent in whatever country they would eventually call their new home. As it has turned out, this website is more about the families of others, which pleases me greatly as the Museum strives to be inclusive and become a lasting tribute to other families as well."

How to Host Files on Dropbox for Your WordPress blog | Tech@CUNYJ

How to Host Files on Dropbox for Your WordPress blog | Tech@CUNYJ: "When you upload media files for your blog via ftp or WordPress, a static copy gets stored on the j-school server. If you change the file, you have to replace the copy to reflect the change. A more flexible alternative is to link to a media file or document stored somewhere online.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to use Dropbox to host audio, photo, and documents on your blog.

Getting Started with Dropbox
Dropbox can be used as a downloadable software application and/or online as a web application. Skip the download if you only want to store files online. Download the app if you’d like your Dropbox folder to be available offline or want to sync across devices."

Critics Consensus: Divergent Disappoints - Rotten Tomatoes

Critics Consensus: Divergent Disappoints - Rotten Tomatoes: "Carlton DeLĂ©on
Divergent's score isn't entirely unexpected. I think critics are getting really tired of futuristic teen movies.

Channing Tatum
Or just teen movies in general. I mean, look at all the failed attempts to start franchises in the last year!"

Critics Consensus: Divergent Disappoints - Rotten Tomatoes

Critics Consensus: Divergent Disappoints - Rotten Tomatoes: " Divergent is a sci-fi allegory about the dangers of conformity. Ironically, critics say the biggest problem with the film is that it borrows too heavily from the likes of The Hunger Games and Harry Potter, leaving its terrific cast stranded in a sea of exposition. In a dystopian future, teenagers are forced to chose one of five factions with which they'll associate for life."

Parks, Playing and Playgrounds : Free Range Kids: "The Evil of Investing in Litigation, by Philip Howard
…A side effect of the 1960s rights revolution was the idea that people had a right to sue for anything. Human suffering became an opportunity to get rich. Entrepreneurial plaintiffs lawyers like Dickie Scruggs, Mel Weiss, and John Edwards congregated at the intersection of human tragedy and human greed, and became tycoons."

Adelina Sotnikova wins women’s figure skating gold - The Washington Post: "Samson and Delilah,” brought out the fighter in Ashley Wagner in the decisive free skate Thursday at the Sochi Olympics. In sixth after Wednesday’s short program, Wagner faced long odds of finishing atop the medal podium. But in a sparkling yellow gown, and competing a reworked program for the first time, Wagner hit all but her initial jump combination—stepping out of the second of her triple flip-triple toe—and poured herself into telling the tale of a temptress."

Definition and Scope of Neglect

Definition and Scope of Neglect: "Difficulty Defining Neglect
Defining neglect historically has been difficult to do, leading to inconsistencies in policies, practice, and research. Without a consistent definition of neglect, it is nearly impossible to compare research results. This inconsistency also leads to variability in the way neglect cases are handled.7"
