Open Letter to President-elect Trump about Post-Election Violence

Conflict resolution experts ask President-elect Trump and other government officials at all levels to take a stand to reduce post-election violence

This election has presented us with a crisis containing danger and opportunity: we can go further down the dangerous path of division, or seek the radical path of treating our neighbors as ourselves.

— The Rev. Ken Howard – Executive Director, The FaithX Project

In an open letter to Trump, members of Congress,State Governors and other officials sent today, dozens of conflict resolution academics and practitioners from across the US, Canada and other countries are asking Trump and other officials to "to use their leadership positions to ensure public understanding that no elected or appointed leaders will condone violence or discriminatory acts or speech."

Dr. Michael Loadenthal, Executive Director, Peace and Justice Studies Association, stated: "As academics, activists, and educators committed to advancing peace and justice in our world, we are concerned that without an explicit, loud and recurring condemnation of recent hate crimes by the incoming administration, their silence will only encourage more acts of violent hatred."

Dr. Julie Macfarlane, Distinguished University Professor and professor of law at the University of Windsor in Canada, and author of The New Lawyer: How Settlement is Transforming the Practice of Law commented: "It is not the unique insight of the conflict resolution community that there are profound fault lines of difference and privilege in American, and Canadian, society – differences of race, gender, ethnicity and even opinion. The election rhetoric and result, rightly or wrongly, has empowered those who exploit these differences in a hateful and aggressive way. These acts must be called out, and we expect the state – in both Canada and the US – to act to protect us all from harassment, threats and abuse."

Professor Kevin Clements, Foundation Director of the National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Otago, New Zealand "urges the incoming administration to do all in its power to put an end to the divisive environment in which we are seeing racism, intolerance and challenges to taken-for-granted constitutional rights. The consequences are global. Here in New Zealand, which prides itself on harmonious race relations, new groups have emerged since the election that are stirring up hatred against indigenous peoples and Asian migrants to New Zealand. For the sake of American and global harmony, all leaders in the US must now work to put a stop to rhetoric that fuels prejudice and discrimination."

Anderson School/Center for Autism has History of Abuse of Children with Autism



Jonathan Carey “Champion for the Disabled” Born September 12,1993 Killed by caregivers on February 15,2007

The truth must be made known about this residential facility for children with autism which Neil Pollack and Patrick Paul have been in leadership.

Jonathan suffered greatly at Anderson and Jonathan later was diagnosed with PTSD as a direct result from the child abuse, ultimately resulting in a legal settlement from Anderson.

— Michael Carey- Advocate for 1,000,000 New Yorkers with disabilities

DELMAR, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 2, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — In January of 2001 Neil Pollack became the CEO & Executive Director of the Anderson School which is now called the Anderson Center for Autism which is located in Staatsburg, New York. According to New York State record, as documented, the next two years were rampant with abuse http://autismschoolabuse.com/Abuse_at_Anderson_School.html . The question is why were the individuals in charge and those directly involved removed and criminally charged, the abuse was rampant? According to New York State penal laws these are crimes against our most vulnerable. Why are those involved in harming our most vulnerable protected and shielded instead of the disabled?

The attached link goes to the New York State document, which was obtained through the Freedom of Information Law. This memorandum from Mark Keegan, the Director of Quality Assurance and Investigations of the CQC (Commission on Quality of Care) to Jan Abelseth of OMRDD (Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities) which is now called OPWDD reveals the “STAGGERING” number of INDICATIONS (Substantiated or Proven) cases of child abuse at the Anderson School, again now called the Anderson Center for Autism. As you can clearly see the rampant abuse was occurring during the tenure of the Director, Neil Pollack, who began his tenure at Anderson in January of 2001. Why was he and others protected and shielded and allowed to remain in charge to date?
The State written document clearly says, “Our indication rate of 23% of all Anderson School cases is nearly four times the overall indication rate for both OMH and OMRDD facilities and Anderson accounts for a staggering 73% of all indications for OMRDD certified facilities.” It is really important to note that during this time period, there were approximately 6,000 OMRDD certified facilities. It is because there is hardly any State oversight and because the State of New York is allowing the Anderson School/Center for Autism in most cases to investigate themselves. Only God and the perpetrators of abuse really know the full scope of what is really going on behind their closed doors.
How does so much abuse and dangers to extremely vulnerable children with autism remain hidden from families of the disabled? It is important to explain some of the extremely disturbing answers. First children with autism and children with disabilities are without question discriminated against and treated as a far lower class of person than anyone without a disability. In the general population the police would be immediately involved, not so for the disabled living in residential care facilities and group homes like Anderson and thousands of others throughout New York State. Since when is it alright for facilities providing services for our disabled children to investigate reported and witnessed crimes against a disabled child? The purposeful bypassing of 911 and local emergency medical and police first responders is all about covering up crimes, injuries and even deaths internally. Bypassing the emergency 911 call systems for the disabled is discrimination, it is extremely dangerous and it is deadly in many cases throughout New York State. In this case regarding the rampant abuse at Anderson, two State agencies protected and shielded this facility from closure and all the individuals involved in either the abuse or the cover-ups from criminal prosecution and the child abuse register. So many people working in this field should never have been allowed to work in this field to begin with because many are in it for the wrong reasons.

Anderson’s Board was asked to remove Mr. Pollack and they would not. Why? Local papers in the area knew full well what was going on at Anderson, they were provided substantial documentation, but they would not write about Anderson and expose the dangers or this facility. Why? Could it be that Anderson was one of the largest providers of jobs in the area? Could it be that Anderson advertised regularly in their papers? Could it be newspapers Executives have relationships with Anderson Board members and influential figures in the community? Or could it be like on college campuses where rapes occur nobody wants these horrors out in the open because it is so ugly and it can taint any facility or areas reputation? Why would the Dutchess County District Attorney look the other way when they became aware? This is how these horrors continue and our society cannot continue to protect and shield child abusers of any child including those that physically or sexually harm children with disabilities and special needs.

It is because of the overwhelming silence and complicity by so many people that I just explained my precious son Jonathan became one of the next victims of child abuse at Anderson. Unbeknownst to us and many other families of the fact that this facility that claims to specialize in autism was extremely dangerous and had a history of abuse that far surpassed all other facilities in New York State. Jonathan was withheld meals/food for behavior modification. What type of people would do such things, such crimes? Jonathan had dozens of bruises on his body. Jonathan’s skin across the top of his toes on both feet was ripped off. Jonathan was secluded in his bedroom against his will for extended periods of time. Jonathan’s caregiver’s and one to one aides blocked Jonathan in his room instead of assisting him and keeping him safe. Jonathan’s window was covered so he could not see outside or anyone could see inside to see what was going on. Jonathan’s family pictures and toys were taken out of his room and removed from Jonathan. Other horrible things happened as well, but you get a general picture of what happened to my 11 years old non-verbal developmentally disabled son with autism. Jonathan suffered greatly at Anderson and Jonathan later was diagnosed with PTSD as a direct result from the child abuse, ultimately resulting in a legal settlement from Anderson.

The good news surrounding the horrors is that there is a New York State law now named in Jonathan’s honor and memory called “Jonathan’s Law” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan's_Law . As a direct result of the horrific abuse and neglect that Jonathan suffered at Anderson and the fact that Anderson and the State attempted to hide and conceal documents and evidence we fought and successfully got this vital new law in place to open access to abuse records and reports after Jonathan was tragically killed by his caregivers in a different New York State run facility called OD Heck located in Schenectady, New York http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/06/nyregion/boys-death-highlights-crisis-in-homes-for-disabled.html . Jonathan is in heaven now, and no sick and twisted person is ever going to abuse or neglect him again, but what about the 1,000,000 other disabled residents throughout New York State? http://www.nytimes.com/video/nyregion/100000000849083/a-failure-to-protect.html I challenge everyone that can to do everything within their power to stand up and speak out against such atrocities, crimes and discriminatory practices. Much can and must be done to end the civil rights violations, finally ensure safe care and services for our disabled, to stop the financial exploitation and profiting off the disabled and to finally treat the disabled equally.

President-Elect Trump Urged: Act on Campaign Pledge to allow personal importation of safe, affordable medicines

Advocates say personal importation of prescription medicines is the only viable option to lower prescription drug price abuses by Pharma

Virtually all medicines the FDA would deny access to are identical to those manufactured in FDA-approved facilities outside the U.S.

— Lee Graczyk

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, USA, December 2, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — Minneapolis, MN, (December 2, 2016)—President-elect Donald Trump is being urged to act immediately upon assuming office to explicitly legalize the personal importation of medicine from licensed registered pharmacies in (Tier One) countries whose standards of safety and efficacy meet or exceed those of the U.S.
In an open letter to the President-elect from Lee Graczyk, lead organizer of RxRights, and Daniel Hines, publisher of TodaysSeniorsNetwork, RxforAmericanHealth and the American Rx Bill of Rights blogs, cite his campaign pledge to support the importation of safe prescription medicines from other countries, and that the U.S. pharmaceutical industry has been instrumental in blocking legal importation even though untold numbers of Americans already safely rely upon personal importation which is subject to seizure and possible destruction, even of authentic medicines.
The letter is based upon a long-standing mantra of supporters that a medicine that is unaffordable is, in and of itself, unavailable, thereby leading to harm to the health and well-being the medicines are developed to prevent.
The letter notes that “ Virtually all medicines the FDA would deny access to are identical to those manufactured in FDA-approved facilities outside the U.S.—the only difference being the label, which reflects requirements of the medicine’s country of origin.”
The letter points out that hours of Congressional hearings about the pricing abuses of Pharma have had no impact on the costs of prescription medicines, all the while that an October Kaiser Health Tracking Poll found 74 percent of the American public believes high prescription drug prices are a priority issue.
“Personal importation is an immediate strategy to allow competition and access to safe affordable medications,” the letter says.

A copy of the letter follows:

An Open Letter to President-Elect Donald Trump:

December 2, 2016

Dear Mr. President-Elect:
The nation anxiously looks to you for leadership on the many challenges our country faces in the months and years ahead. One major challenge is access to affordable medicine.
Before the 2016 election, you made a number of statements regarding Americans' need for affordable prescription drugs. In particular:
• You noted the U.S. pharmaceutical industry has been instrumental in blocking importation legislation (even though untold numbers of Americans already rely on importation).
• You said you would support the importation of safe prescription drugs from other countries.
An October Kaiser Health Tracking Poll found 74 percent of the American public believes high prescription drug prices are a priority issue. Prescription drug prices in the U.S. are the highest in the world. Americans often pay twice as much or more than other countries.
Hours of Congressional hearings on outrageous prescription medicine prices have not yielded a speedy solution for citizens struggling to afford medicine. Personal importation is an immediate strategy to allow competition and access to safe affordable medications.
Consider these points:
• The Food and Drug Administration currently allows personal importation of prescription medicines if they are unavailable in this country or if they’re carried across the border in person by the patient.
• Virtually all medicines the FDA would deny access to are identical to those manufactured in FDA-approved facilities outside the U.S.—the only difference being the label, which reflects requirements of the medicine’s country of origin.
• PhRMA has a proven record of undue and troubling influence in healthcare policy.
o The lobbying group met with the President of the United States in closed-door meetings to influence prescription policy related to the Affordable Care Act.
o PhRMA and its front groups influence the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate through millions of dollars of campaign contributions.
Your administration has the authority to address the public health crisis created by out of control drug prices. We urge you to act to explicitly legalize the personal importation of medicine from licensed registered pharmacies in (Tier One) countries whose standards of safety and efficacy meet or exceed those of the U.S.
Sincerely,
Lee J. Graczyk

Crescent Real Estate Celebrates Pelli Clarke Pelli-Designed McKinney & Olive Office Development Opening in Uptown Dallas

Opening of McKinney & Olive, designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli and almost fully occupied,
expands Crescent’s footprint to approximately 20 acres in Uptown Dallas

We took the best site within the best submarket within a wonderful city, added world-class architecture and development expertise. Our customers are confirming McKinney & Olive is a ‘sexy’ address.

— John Goff, chairman and CEO of Crescent Real Estate Equities, LLC

DALLAS, TEXAS, USA, December 2, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — Barely two years after breaking ground in the heart of Uptown Dallas, Crescent Real Estate leaders celebrated the grand opening of McKinney & Olive, the first commercial building in Dallas to be designed by an internationally acclaimed architect since the 1980s. McKinney & Olive is a one-of-a-kind, 20-story structure offering world-class architecture, premier office and retail space, and unrivaled visibility in the vibrant pedestrian-oriented Uptown Dallas neighborhood. Internationally renowned architectural firm Pelli Clarke Pelli designed the 536,000-square-foot structure, which founder Cesar Pelli dubbed “a sexy building,” with its bold and stunning curves, contemporary features, space for captivating retail spots and an inviting piazza for neighborhood gatherings.

"We took the best site within the best submarket within a wonderful city, added world-class architecture and a little development expertise, and the result speaks for itself. Most importantly, our customers are confirming that McKinney & Olive is very much a ‘sexy’ address and terrific home for their business," said John Goff, chairman and CEO of Crescent Real Estate Equities, LLC. “Crescent has heavily invested in the Uptown area with a vison to pay tribute to Dallas and make it a better place to live, work and play. I’m very proud of our team’s effort and believe we accomplished that goal.”

The opening of McKinney & Olive deepens Crescent’s investment and visibility in Uptown. The company recently completed a $33 million renovation of The Crescent, a mixed-use complex built in 1986 that serves as an iconic anchor and continues its reign as the financial center of the Southwest. In 2007, they opened The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas and The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton; and, in July 2016, Crescent and its affiliates purchased Hotel Crescent Court. The opening of McKinney & Olive brings their ownership in Uptown to four major properties spanning approximately 20 contiguous acres.

Located on a 3.1-acre site across from The Ritz-Carlton, McKinney & Olive is a Class AAA mixed-use complex with approximately 486,000 rentable square feet of office space and two levels (50,000 square feet) of retail space. Building highlights include the two-and-one-half-story grand lobby filled with crystal-clear glass and dramatic Carrara marble extracted from legendary Italian quarries that Michelangelo once surveyed and prospected. Office floors feature 10-foot ceilings and highly efficient and flexible floor plates. The corners of the building have been specially designed without supporting columns so that floor-to-ceiling glass walls offer stunning unobstructed city views up and down McKinney Ave., throughout Uptown, over to downtown Dallas’ Arts District and Klyde Warren Park, and as far as Victory Park.

The customer-only Concierge Floor features a sunlit conference center and fitness studio designed and equipped by Canyon Ranch®, which overlooks the lushly landscaped rooftop terrace. The exterior of the building is framed by a graceful canopy with eye-catching oculi that is both aesthetically beautiful and structural. The 1-acre piazza, created by landscape architect, The Office of James Burnett (who also designed Klyde Warren Park), includes beautiful green spaces, water features, a fire pit, a wide variety of seating, and two valet parking options for office and retail visitors. The retail component includes flagship restaurant Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, Starbucks opening in 2017 with “a concept unlike any seen in Texas,” and 2017 debut of Doc B’s Fresh Kitchen, a Chicago-based fast-casual concept that focuses on house-made and mindfully sourced dishes and craft beer, wine and spirits selection. Confirmed just days ago is Roti Modern Mediterranean, a popular, fast-casual concept found in New York City and along the East Coast, that showcases the “Mediterranean's delicious flavors, wholesome ingredients and bright spices.” The eatery – which features wraps, rice plates and salads – is expected to open Spring 2017.

“The McKinney & Olive project has been an extraordinary opportunity to contribute not only an exciting and new pedestrian destination within an already rich and flourishing Uptown street environment and, at the same time, add a fresh dynamic form and a distinctive crystalline jewel to the Dallas skyline,” said Gregg Jones, principal at Pelli Clarke Pelli.

Local businesses have fully embraced the vision for McKinney & Olive, which is nearly 93 percent leased —
and there is a great deal of interest in remaining space. Customers who have signed leases to date include major law firms Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP and Sidley Austin LLP along with real estate giants Cushman & Wakefield and Prologis Industrial REIT. Saatchi & Saatchi and Team One, the ad agencies for Toyota Motor Company and Lexus, chose McKinney & Olive as their new Dallas office, citing a “habitat designed to stimulate creativity, ensure intimate client service and strive to prove nothing is impossible.”

Gardere was the first major firm to sign a lease at McKinney & Olive and is the anchor tenant.

“McKinney & Olive is everything we thought it would be and more,” says Holland N. O’Neil, chair of Gardere’s board of directors. “We could not be prouder of our new home!”

Goff credits the building’s extraordinary success to creativity and expertise of Pelli Clarke Pelli, a firm that has produced some of the world’s most recognizable structures, including World Financial Center in New York, Petronas Towers in Malaysia, and International Finance Centre in Hong Kong. Pelli Clarke Pelli has received critical acclaim and hundreds of design awards, including American Institute of Architects’ Firm Award, the highest honor for an architectural practice. In 1995, American Institute of Architects awarded Cesar Pelli the Gold Medal, its highest honor for an individual.
The general contractor for the project was The Beck Group. The development is expected to attain LEED Gold certification.

“When we started the design process in 2012, we were confident Cesar Pelli and his team had created a blockbuster design that truly embraced Uptown’s vitality,” said Joseph Pitchford, managing director of Crescent Real Estate Equities, LLC. “Thanks to the quality construction led by The Beck Group and the rave reviews we’ve received from customers and the neighboring community, we know we made the right decision in every regard.”

IT Governance encourages information security professionals to analyse daily incidents to avoid data breaches

ELY, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, November 30, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — International information security experts IT Governance, are encouraging information security professionals to help organisations avoid data breaches by analysing the breaches disclosed in the news every day. IT Governance advises that this analysis can help information security professionals develop strategies and tactics to prevent cyber threats.

Alan Calder, the founder and chief executive officer of IT Governance, said: “Data breaches, such as those suffered by Tesco Bank, Morrisons and TalkTalk, make headline news every day. Information security professionals can learn from them and develop tactics to avoid breaches and respond to information security incidents.

“A data breach compromises the confidentiality, availability and/or integrity of an organisation’s information. Organisations should focus on the three core areas that will help avoid a data breach: people, processes and technology. There’s much to learn about how those three facets contribute to cyber security from studying news reports when security fails.”

It is critical to understand the everyday trends and traits of data breaches: why and how they take place, the types of breaches that can occur, what makes attacks successful, and what measures an organisation should take to avoid or recover from a data breach. Information security professionals hoping to gain a better appreciation of these traits are encouraged to take a look at IT Governance’s book of the month: Managing Information Security Breaches – Studies from real life by Michael Krausz.

The book is a thought-provoking guide to preparing for a data breach, and gives real-life examples of breaches to help organisations prepare for incidents they may face in the future. It explains how data breaches and incidents can be dealt with, and the role ISO 27001:2013 has to play in keeping organisations secure.

The ISO 27001:2013 standard advocates the three pillars of cyber security: people, processes and technology. By implementing an ISO 27001-compliant information security management system (ISMS), organisations address the key risk areas and take a systematic approach to monitoring, maintaining and improving their information security.

IT Governance supports ISO 27001 compliance projects with a range of ISO 27001 packaged solutions. Each solution provides a carefully selected mix of training, tools and consultancy services designed to help organisations with different internal competences, skills and resources to implement and achieve compliance with the Standard.
