In 2010 I was working for the Presidential Primary elections and writing my music. The election for our precinct was being held in Dupree Elementary School where this great bunch of kids was collecting money to help Haiti after it’s massive earthquake. I told the music teacher there that I was a song writer and had written a couple of songs on the subject myself and asked if they would like for me to perform them, I had written God Help Haiti for a fundraising song and You Put Down Your Remote for a thank you song. You Put Down Your Remote is actually on my Soundcloud.com account (see also Sending Your Sound to a Cloud, November 2014, Record or http://www.newsrecord.co/sending-sound-cloud).
Legal Issues and the Counseling Profession
Erford (2014) emphasized the importance of counselors keeping abreast of, “laws, ethics, and policies, and procedures,” (p. 66) that apply to the mental health counseling profession. Of particular importance for the counselor would be for counselors to monitor laws/regulations set forth by federal and state governments as these have an impact on counselors and their practices. In particular, “the judicial branch, in which courts hand down decisions that directly affect the counselor’s behaviors.” (p. 67.). This article elaborates on a landmark case pertaining to duty to warn and court ordered evaluations in light of the responsibility of the counselor. The researcher explained with regard to the laws that impact the mental health profession, “most legislation influencing counselors… by legislation and concerns two types of legislation: state legislation to implement federal legislation and new state specific legislation.” (p. 87.). The case Fredericks v. Jonsson, 2010 is interesting as the jurisdiction in which the case was adjudicated appeared in terms of the Tarasoff doctrine, to have “interpreted the holding of the case differently.” (p. 189.). There was also a state statute 13-21-117 concerning mental health professionals being free of liability if they fail to warn or predict dangerousness of a client.
Many parents in Africa were shocked this week when a video of a nanny torturing a 2 year old baby in Uganda went viral. The video is heartbreaking. The nanny is caught on camera force feeding the baby and slaps her when she can’t swallow as quickly as the maid wants. The nanny then eats up the porridge. After a short while, the kid throws up on the couch. The nanny hits the baby hard, forcing poor kid to the floor, face down. The nanny then uses a torch to whip the baby for what seemed to be eternity. The baby helplessly lies on the spot she fell on, crying. And even that does not stop the nanny from continuing to torture the baby; she is then seen stepping on the baby’s back and kicking her. The video ends with the nanny carrying the baby, with one hand, off the floor and disappears to another room.

Tonight’s speech from President Obama was partly to address the unyielding immigration issue, and partly about shaping the Democratic Party for 2016.
President Obama presented his actions in stark contrast with the House of Representatives, making sure to remind tonight’s audience of the government shutdown it had caused and its refusal to put previously adopted immigration legislation by the Senate to a vote. He directly mentioned the GOP and explained his vision of the country on the issue, with the implied understanding that this was not shared by his political adversaries. And anyone from first to third generation immigrant who was watching tonight would be hard pressed to disagree given the President’s heartfelt defense of the issue.
In our cities of today
With a purpose and eager steps
I head back into the woods
For that experience
I seem never to get enough of
How the place goes hush,
with eyes on me, I feel and don’t see,
till I settle down,
for my turn,
and wait for it to come alive,
Birds, red and blue,
now all around me
