Students: Remove white supremacist's name from high school
2/19/2020 4:01:08 PM

ATLANTA (AP)—Students at an Atlanta high school want to rename their school because its namesake was a 19th century newspaper editor who endorsed white supremacy. About 180 Henry W. Grady High School students submitted a petition to the school board on Feb. 3 requesting a name change for the school, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Grady was an editor and part-owner of The Atlanta Constitution. He advocated for a “New South” after the Civil War, but he also campaigned against equality for freed slaves, saying “the supremacy of the white race of the...

Questions complicate efforts to contain new virus from China
2/19/2020 3:57:22 PM

By Lauran Neergaard   WASHINGTON (AP)—Reports one day suggest the respiratory outbreak in China might be slowing, the next brings word of thousands more cases. Even the experts have whiplash in trying to determine if the epidemic is getting worse, or if a backlog of the sick is finally getting counted. Continuing questions about the new virus are complicating health authorities' efforts to curtail its spread around the world. And the United States is taking the first steps to check that cases masquerading as the flu won't be missed, another safeguard on top of...

WASHINGTON (AP)—The Trump administration's effort to remake Medicaid by requiring low-income people to work for health care suffered a serious setback Friday when a federal appeals court ruled it goes beyond what's allowed by law. The unanimous decision by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit means President Donald Trump will have little to show for one of his major health care initiatives ahead of the November elections. The case involves Arkansas, but the ruling is expected to affect other states pursuing work...

They became deeply involved in their community and dedicated much of their free time to teaching English as a second language, creating tutoring programs and mentoring students in poor...

Courtesy of California Health Advocates   SACRAMENTO—If you are eligible for Medicare, regardless of whether you signed up for it, COBRA can bite you! COBRA—the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act—gives you the legal right to continue group health benefits when they might otherwise end due to job loss, divorce or death.

WRITING OUR OWN HISTORY
2/13/2020 4:33:30 PM

By Oscar Blayton   Noted Nigerian author Chinua Achebe once said, “Until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter.” History, like law and race, is a human construct. It has no physical existence, yet it is still a very real phenomenon. When we study history, we study the recordings and explanations of past events in narrative form as they have been told. But it is not enough to study the narratives of past events. If we are not to be victimized by history, we must know who created these narratives and why. We must...
