AJLPP- New York | In nationally-coordinated events in California and New York last April 28, 29 and May 4, over 350 Filipino youth gathered to show unwavering support for KABATAAN Partylist, the leading and only partylist representing the youth sector in the upcoming elections in the Philippines. Using rock and acoustic music, hip hop, poetry, and shadow theater, Filipino youth used their creativity to show how their local issues are connected with the issues of youth in the Philippines addressed by the KABATAAN Partylist.

The Musikabataan Festival, held over two nights in Queens, New York, and the Power and Potential of the Youth Block Party, held in Los Angeles, California, were culminating cultural events of the US-based campaign to support KABATAAN Partylist, initiated last March by KABATAAN-Ugnayan ng mga Anak ng Bayan (Linking the Children of the Motherland) and KABATAAN-Kabataang maka-Bayan (KmB, Pro-People Youth). Using all available means from street outreach to the use of blogs and websites, Filipino youth in the US have taken part in various organizing and outreach efforts to amplify the issues of the youth in the Philippines, such as education, employment and forced migration, and to educate the community about the need for clean and fair elections.

Drawing wide support, the campaign was recently joined by the 250-member strong Philippine Workers' Center's Youth, UNITE based in Los Angeles .

Senior Gambling Addiction

Suzanne B. Pekow | For a growing number of senior citizens, gambling addiction is a problem that is often financially and emotionally crippling, yet it is one that few health care providers are trained to screen and diagnose.

I recently visited an Atlantic City casino to talk with some older New Jersey residents about the role gambling plays in their lives. I also spoke with Keith Whyte, executive director of the National Council on Problem Gambling, and Dr. Christine Fernandez, PhD., Project Manager of the Gambling Disorders Clinic at Columbia University Medical Center.

Dancing With Myself

J. Alexander Nixon, The New York Megaphone | While he was mayor, Rudy Giuliani implemented his “quality of life campaign” which presumably was meant to make NYC a prettier, happier place to live. He tried to cut down on things like graffiti and jumping the subway turnstile. Because the cabaret laws were already on the books (but hadn’t been enforced in years), Giuliani simply beefed up enforcement. As a result, “Guiliani Time” caused a lot of bars and clubs to be fined or closed down. By 2002, of the 4,811 city venues with liquor licenses, only 276 were licensed cabarets where people were allowed to dance. more...  0 Comments
