High tech/low income; Amazon to start accepting food stamps online

Amazon is among seven grocers selected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to test online grocery ordering and payment using the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as food stamps. Amazon will accept online food stamp orders in Maryland, New York and New Jersey as part of the program. The two-year trial begins this summer and covers seven states, mostly on the East Coast. Safeway is the only grocer in the trial that will accept online food stamp orders and purchases on the West Coast, with Washington and Oregon as part of its program. Amazon responded to the news with the following statement: “Amazon is excited to participate in the USDA SNAP Online Purchasing Pilot. We are committed to making food accessible through online grocery shopping, offering all customers the lowest prices possible. Amazon’s selection and competitive pricing can improve the grocery shopping experience for SNAP participants while helping them extend their benefits further.” Amazon’s grocery delivery service AmazonFresh requires shoppers to be Prime members, a program that costs $99 per year or $10.99 per month. Tack on an additional $14.99 per month for AmazonFresh — a recent change from a $299 annual fee — and a $9.99 fee for deliveries under $40, and Amazon could become a pricey proposition for food stamp recipients, who are not allowed to use their benefits on delivery and service charges. Amazon has not said whether shoppers at its future drive-up grocery stores will need to be Prime members or how the pricing structure will work. Amazon is under construction and getting close to opening its first drive-up grocery stores in Seattle, with one in the Ballard neighborhood and... read more

Negro Mentality; How other people define who we are to ourselves and the world

Note from UIN:  As President Trump visits Poland this week. This article published in 2014 references a comment by a Polish official speaking of Poland’s relationship with the US. In this fascinating article, the author attempts to explain what the official meant when he said Poland has a “Negro Mentality”.Please note that the word mentioned Moor (Black African who conquered Spain and brought education to White people in Europe)which is the word that was  once used to describe all Africans. Today it is spelled More, Moore, Muir Morris, Morman, Moreno, Morales, Bomorito; you get the picture.Also, the word Slave did not originally apply to Black people. The word slave comes from the word slav which is a white eastern European.  The “e” was added when they made Africans slavs. As Black media is closing shop or being bought by Hispanics, why are our leaders and politicians  not speaking out. Do they  have the Negro Mentality? This is what happens when you don’t control your media.  “Blowjobs,” “F***-Ups” and the “Negro Mentality”: Polish Politics Behind the Curtain   Polish Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski. [Source: Agencja Gazeta] By Stanley BillA series of explosive tape recordings involving senior members of the government has recently rocked Poland, lifting the lid on unseemly backroom negotiations and potentially damaging relations with key allies. In one of the recorded conversations, Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski characterizes Poland as the imprudent giver of unreciprocated blowjobs to the United States and derides Poles for their “negro mentality.” What has happened to the “new Poland”? Who released the tapes and why? The reputation of Poland’s political class has never been high among its citizens, but the last few... read more

New curriculum requirements proposed for Mich. high schools

by David Eggert, Associated Press LANSING – Michigan’s high school graduation requirements would become more flexible and include a mandatory career readiness course under a series of recommendations and moves announced Monday by Gov. Rick Snyder, who said more must be done to help students fill in-demand jobs in the trades. Snyder called on lawmakers to change the requirements, known as the Michigan Merit Curriculum, to mandate that a career exploration-job skills class be completed in seventh or eighth grade. He said computer science should count to meet a foreign language requirement and that students should be able to fulfill health and physical education requirements by completing career health programs. The curriculum changes were included in a broader list of career pathway proposals developed after top state officials gathered input from employers, educators and union leaders. Recommendations include using certain career planning programs statewide, enhancing career counseling, letting career and technical education students earn an industry-recognized credential and increasing the number of trade instructors. To graduate from high school in Michigan, students must earn at least 18 credits in seven subject areas and complete an online course or learning component. Those who graduate in 2021 or earlier already can fulfill up to half of the two-credit foreign language requirement by completing a career and technical education program or earning another credit in visual, performing or applied arts. The Republican-governor’s announcement came about three months after the GOP-led House voted 69-39 to replace the foreign language and art requirements with a three-credit 21st-Century skills requirement. It could be met by any combination of a foreign language, art, computer science or... read more
