BlazerCast for March 8, 2010: In the 1930s, photographers and writers, hired by the government, traveled across the United States to document the ways ordinary Americans were affected by the Depression and President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal - the social and economic policies implemented to help restore the economy and create jobs. UAB ethnographic film instructors Michele Forman, MA, and Rosie O'Beirne, MA, asked students to create similar short documentaries that show citizens and nonprofit agencies in the Birmingham area that will benefit from the federal stimulus dollars.

Why did Scott Brown Win? Scott Brown election in Massachusetts - why did Scott Brown win in the race vs. Martha Coakley for the US Senate seat formerly held by Edward "Ted" Kennedy Comments here from Bruce Fenton of the FentonReport Global (www.fentonreport.com) with leading political expert, author and radio show host Ed Dean of Florida This clip discusses the campaigns of Coakley and Brown and the independents and tea party activism groups and thier effect on the election Scott Brown's official bio is as follows: State Senator Scott Brown has led the fight in Massachusetts against wasteful government spending and higher taxes. He is a free-market advocate who believes our strength as a nation flows from its people. He believes in a culture of family, patriotism and freedom. At his September 12 announcement of candidacy for the US Senate, Senator Brown articulated a core set of beliefs that guide his thinking. * Government is too big and that the federal stimulus bill made government bigger instead of creating jobs * Taxes are too high and are going higher if Congress continues with its out-of-control spending * The historic amount of debt we are passing on to our children and grandchildren is immoral * Power concentrated in the hands of one political party, as it is here in Massachusetts, leads to bad government and poor decisions * A strong military and vigorous homeland defense will protect our interests and security around the world and at home * All Americans ...
Dr. Scott Fuller, DC offers an alternative plan for improving the health of the nation by creating clinics across the country which provide information about how to shop and cook healthy, and exercise classes for any ability. These clinics target health care costs by decreasing costly chronic disease rates (heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity) which could save the nation billions of dollars by preventing these diseases from occuring. In addition, these clinics could create thousands of jobs by staffing these clinics with social workers, nutritionists, gardeners, farmers, exercise physiologists, trainers, and janitors and security workers. Initial clinic funding could be with federal stimulus money, and continue to run from the health care cost savings. Look for all three parts of the 30 minute show. Dr. Fuller has a public access cable show in the Woburn, MA area called "Health Source," recorded at the WoburnPublicMediaCenter.org.
Ohio Governor Ted Strickland and US Senator Sherrod Brown visited Project HIRE on January 11th, 2010 to discuss the state and federal government's job retraining efforts in Cleveland. Project HIRE, a state recovery initiative created this past spring through American Recovery and Reinvestment Act's Workforce Investment Act funds, helps provide worker retraining programs and connects Ohio job seekers with potential employers. "Ohioans who work for a living have been knocked down by this global recession. That's exactly why we're investing in job training and education--because we know that to rebuild Ohio's economy from the ground up, we need to provide everyday Ohioans with every opportunity to obtain the knowledge and skills they need to find good jobs and sustainable careers," Gov. Strickland said. "Project HIRE is a federal-state partnership that's working." The Cleveland/Cuyahoga County Department of Workforce Development (Employment Connection) has connected 160 workers with job placement, including 39 at the Cleveland Clinic, by utilizing workforce dollars, including federal stimulus and Project HIRE resources. In addition, a new Cleveland company, SP Data, is using workforce funds and Project HIRE for mass recruitment and hiring assistance for hundreds of new jobs. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act allocates $138 million to Ohio in Workforce Investment Act (WIA) funds. More information can be found HERE. US Sen. Sherrod Brown is an outspoken advocate in ...

Massachusetts Recovery and Reinvestment Office Director Jeffrey Simon visited GLFHC to examine first hand the progress taking place on the North Site (Park Street) Expansion Project. GLFHC has received nearly $1.5 million in stimulus funding which it is using to expand its current clinical site. The center currently has 14 treatment rooms and the project will enable it to expand to 29 treatment rooms. The stimulus funding also led to an expansion of lab services and a newly launched pharmacy service has already opened as part of this overall expansion.

Fiona Ma discusses her visit to the White House where she plans to discuss federal stimulus funding, high speed rail, green energy, and drought-related issues.
Congressman Darrell Issa (R-California), with information supplied by Red Mass Group, recently asked Governor Deval Patrick why Massachusetts is wasting $174M in stimulus money. To recap, due to the difference in Federal Prevailing Wage and Massachusetts Prevailing Wage, 17.7% of every construction dollar in Massachusetts is wasted on inflated wages. We at Red Mass Group originally talked about the waste of stimulus money through our own prevailing wage (www.redmassgroup.com here, and followed up www.redmassgroup.com here. We then followed up by (www.redmassgroup.com interviewing David Tuerck of the Beacon Hill Institute. Dr. Tuerck confirmed that our calculation of $174 Million in wasted money was accurate based on the Beacon Hill Institutes calculations. The House Republican leadership tried to force a vote, to exempt stimulus money from the Massachusetts Prevailing wage law on June 11, 2009 and was unsuccessful. Below you will see the exchange between Congressman Issa and Governor Patrick. After that exchange, Governor Patrick needed to be excused to check the facts. We sent these facts to Congressman Issa the previous evening through the Whistleblower submit form on his committee's minority page. While Governor Patrick was excused, Congressman Issa then asked both Governor Rendell (D-PA) and Governor O'Malley (D-MD) if they use the Federal or their own state's prevailing wage on stimulus projects. Both said they use the Federal prevailing wage.

show. It seems that the administration said that neither Obama or our tax-cheating Treasury Secretary knew about these AIG bonuses until last week.
