What do military families say they need for family education and support?

first_imgAccording to a recent needs assessment conducted by Dr. Angela Huebner and her colleagues at Virginia Tech when it comes to accessing formal support systems such as MilitaryOneSource or support centers, military service members and their families:Prefer getting support information from a “known” person such as a family readiness officer, ombudsmen or key spouse.Are more likely to access a program or service on the recommendation of a trusted friend or family member.Prefer information specific to their installation and/or community as well as information directly affiliated with the military such as the Chain of Command and Squadron Leaders.Use family members, usually the active duty spouse, as a primary source of information about programs and services.Face barriers to using formal support systems such as the perception that most programs are targeted at younger service members and those with families, information overload, fear that accessing support would reflect poorly on service member and inefficient timing of information.How can Military Families Learning Network and the Cooperative Extension System help meet these needs?Cooperative Extension is in a unique position to help military families no matter where they live.

4 days ago​Arsenal boss Emery: We needs youngsters for success

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say ​Arsenal boss Emery: We needs youngsters for successby Freddie Taylor4 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal manager Unai Emery believes the club’s youngsters have a vital role to play as they strive for success this season.The Gunners are competing on several fronts, including the Premier League and Europa League.Squad rotation is essential if they are to maintain form and fitness over a lengthy and gruelling season.It is why Emery believes the younger players emerging in the squad have vital roles to play.”We can play better each match. It’s one process. Little by little we’re using the young players to achieve the performance, giving them confidence and experience in the matches,” Emery told reporters.”For example, Bukayo Saka is improving, helping us and taking a good performance. I know he needs to break more steps ahead in his improvement. Other players are the same.”This is the way he can give us the best performance and best way to do our way, playing maybe better sometimes. I think this is one process.”For us it’s very important to be competitive each match. We are being competitive at the moment. Being competitive we can then achieve a better way for how we can play.”If we are competitive we can use different players in different moments, some with more skill, some with more capacity to do pressing and transition. We can use them if we, like a team, can feel strong in our mentality and being competitive and consistent each match.” last_img read more

Twitter says it doesnt shadow ban after Trump tweet

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – Twitter shares fell Thursday after President Donald Trump said in a tweet the company was limiting visibility of prominent Republicans and said he was going to look into the matter.The tweet came after a story in Vice magazine said prominent Republicans such as Republican Party chair Ronna McDaniel were not showing up in one aspect of Twitter’s search function.While the accounts did show up during a general search, they didn’t automatically populate in a drop-down bar when typing in the name.In his tweet Trump accused Twitter of “shadow banning,” or limiting visibility, of some Republicans and said it was “discriminatory and illegal.”Twitter said it does not “shadow ban.” The company said it was aware that some accounts were not automatically populating but that was due to a bug they are working to fix. The social media site said in a statement it does not make judgments based on political views or substance of tweets.Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter have been accused of having a bias against conservatives before. Diamond and Silk, the Trump-supporting video personalities, had their page removed by Facebook earlier this year, leading to outcries of censorship, including from several congressmen. During his Congressional hearing in April, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said this was an “enforcement error” and the page would be reinstated.Twitter shares fell 4 per cent in afternoon trading.last_img read more

The document cache shows Facebook considered charging developers for data access and restricting others it considered a threat. The committee seized the documents from an app developer that sued Facebook over its policies.___Trump’s push for tariffs squeezes a weakening global economyNEW YORK (AP) — The global economy was already girding for a slowdown when a flurry of tweets by President Donald Trump about his love of tariffs sent a chill through financial markets.

China has yet to confirm Trump’s claim that Beijing committed to cut auto tariffs and buy more American farm exports.___White House intensifies confusion and fear on US-China dealWASHINGTON (AP) — The disarray surrounding the China deal coincides with a global economy that faces other challenges: Britain is struggling to negotiate its exit from the European Union.
