In North Carolina, Durham Pride brings revolutionary queerness

first_imgWWP anti-capitalist contingent at Durham, N.C. Pride, Sept. 29.Durham, N.C. — The struggle for LGBTQ liberation in the South has had its roots in strong resistance to the constant onslaught from reactionaries. The queer community in North Carolina has fought to return LGBTQ Pride to its roots by being outspoken and political — which is sorely needed to defend our communities.North Carolina is among 16 states that still have anti-sodomy laws on the books, despite those laws being declared unconstitutional at the national level. In addition, North Carolina joined with several other states in passing anti-trans “bathroom bills” in 2016, a law only half-repealed in 2017, which excludes trans people from legal protection.Any celebration of Pride in North Carolina should be a fight against these reactionary attacks and a fight for LGBTQ liberation, and not based on pinkwashing white supremacy.That is why Workers World Party’s Durham branch organized an anti-capitalist contingent to march in the Sept. 29 Durham Pride parade — and focused its chants and placards on the fight for queer liberation.But for a while this year, it wasn’t clear that Pride would even take place. In June, NC Pride, the organization previously in charge of Pride in Durham, announced that the event — set to happen in 3 months — was cancelled.Quickly, the local queer community, including the LGBTQ Center of Durham, rose to the challenge of reclaiming Pride and hosted the event on Sept. 29. The former leaders in NC Pride had been mostly white cis gay men. The new leadership was centered around queer trans people of color, including the House of Coxx, a prominent Durham drag family. One grand marshall was a founder of North Carolina’s original Pride in 1981, and two were co-founders of Southerners on New Ground (SONG).The shift in leadership at Durham’s Pride opened up opportunities to reclaim the day from corporations and white supremacy. The most notable win was a ban on uniformed police officers marching in the parade.While this was a win, uniformed cops were still present providing “security” for the event, so it is clear that many struggles still need to be opened. Wells Fargo was still a sponsor of the event, and lots of businesses sought to capitalize and co-opt our community. Pride was still held on Duke University’s campus and marched through an area that has contributed to the gentrification of the neighboring Black community, Walltown. According to an event organizer, the event was only held there because the space was already reserved by the previous organizers and may change next year.Durham WWP branch’s anti-capitalist contingent raised the issue of police brutality by wearing shirts saying “Queer as in fuck the police” and also raised the murder of North Carolina Central University student Deandre Ballard by a private security guard days before. NCCU is a historically Black university.The struggle for queer liberation is necessarily a struggle against police brutality, and for the connection between Black and queer liberation, as well as with other liberation movements. Many people watching the parade cheered as WWP Durham marched by, calling for cops to be kicked out of Pride and chanting “Be loud! Don’t be silent! The first Pride was a riot!”In addition to the strong anti-capitalist WWP presence, white liberals were also there, with many groups waving pinkwashed U.S. flags. There is still work that needs to be done to orient the community away from the dangerous rainbow capitalism and white supremacy that has taken over in other major cities across the country.In North Carolina, Charlotte’s Pride for six years has been named the “Bank of America Pride Parade” and has been thoroughly co-opted by the same corporations that threw queer workers out of their foreclosed homes in 2008 and are engaging in the violent gentrification of oppressed communities.The strong and militant WWP presence in the march was a hopeful reinvigoration of Durham Pride with revolutionary queerness. Next year, 2019, the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion, offers the Durham queer community another opportunity to gather together militantly against police brutality and rainbow capitalism.Cops out of Pride! End the murders of Black and Brown trans women! Pride is a riot!Minnie Bruce Pratt and several members of the Workers World Durham branch also contributed to this article.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Four U.S. Cities Where Paychecks are Stretching Furthest

first_img The Four U.S. Cities Where Paychecks are Stretching Furthest Sign up for DS News Daily Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Journal, Market Studies, News Those looking to get the biggest bang for their bucks would be most likely to find it west of the Mississippi, according to a new joint report by Trulia and Indeed. The firms looked at which American cities stretch paychecks the furthest. The report found four cities topping the list, in the South, Southwest, and West. Three are mid-sized cities and one is larger.Birmingham, Alabama, tops the list of cities where paychecks meet opportunity. The iron-and-steel town dubbed the “Pittsburgh of the South” has an average salary of about $77,000 that, adjusted for cost of living, spends like $86,000. According to Zillow data, the median home value in Birmingham is $64,600 and home values in the city have increased 6.6 percent over the past year“Birmingham’s growth doesn’t match the pace of Southern economic powerhouses like Atlanta, Raleigh, and Nashville,” the report stated, “but it is Alabama’s largest city and a bright spot in the state’s economy, accounting for about 30 percent of its domestic product.”The Irondale neighborhood is a major affordability boon to the region, Trulia reported. Median home prices in the 35210 zip code are, on average, $147,000. That’s about $50,000 below more metro-centered homes. Trulia found almost identical dollar-stretching numbers in St. Louis, Missouri, and El Paso, Texas. Both cities report a median income around $76,000 that stretches to about $84,000 when adjusted for cost of living. Dollars in St. Louis, according to Trulia, stretch further than those in Chicago and Detroit, the latter of which is considered a highly affordable metro. The city has an economy running on manufacturing, construction, leisure, and hospitality.Still, dollars stretch further in the St. Louis suburb of Bethalto, which is actually in Illinois. Bethalto is less than 35 miles from downtown St. Louis, and homes there sell for a median price of $114,000. Zillow shows a current median home value in Saint Louis proper at $128,600, up 9.1 percent year-over-year.Over in far-west Texas, El Paso might be the forgotten metro of the Lone Star State, but it’s the most affordable city in Texas, according to the report. The same salary spends about $9,000 better in El Paso than in Dallas, even though home values in the city’s most desired suburb, Upper Valley, are significant. Median homes in Upper Valley sell for about $460,000. Per Zillow, the median El Paso home value is $115,700, up 1.7 percent over the past year.The West Coast’s lone entry to value-friendly cities is Fresno, California, where an $82,000 average salary stretches to about $84,000. Fresno is part of California’s software hub, but the region is still big in farming and leisure, given its proximity to three national parks.According to Trulia, most Fresno workers prefer to live in Woodward Park, 11 miles outside of town. The median home price in Woodward Park is about $342,000, roughly $100,000 more than living in the city itself. Within the city, the gulf between average salary and median home price, though, is among the most favorable in California’s urban areas. Zillow reports the median home value in Fresno is at $228,700, with a year-over-year increase of 10.5 percent.

Long” Thursday night at the Claudia Crosby Theater. Long is director of bands emeritus at Troy University and namesake of the University’s John M. Long School of Music.Long conducted the Pearl City High School Symphonic Winds multiple times in Honolulu and was honored to have the band play on his home turf.The Pearl City High School Symphonic Winds, conducted by Chadwick Kamei, is one of the premier concert band programs in the nation. The band recently returned from a successful performance at the Hamamatsu International Band Festival in Hamamatsu, Japan.

The guest conductors, Mike Nakasone and Paula Crider, were outstanding. And, Dr. Mark Walker, the director of Troy University bands, continues to build our program at Troy. It gets better and better. I am humbled to be a small part of it.”Long spoke of the recognitions he has received and the kindnesses that have been shown to him.“I don’t deserve this,” he said. “But, it makes me appreciate and love this city and the people here and everywhere even more.”Crider, who is a longtime friend of Long, characterized him as an “encourager.” Email the author Published 11:00 pm Friday, March 22, 2013 By The Penny Hoardercenter_img The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson “The first time that I met Dr. Long, he talked to me a little while and, then, as I was about to walk away, he told me that he thought I was going to make a fine band director. That was unsolicited confidence for a young, skinny trumpet player. I’ll never forget those words of encouragement. I’m sure Dr. Long had said those same words many times but it was the first time that he had said them to me.”Just how many times Long, age 87, has spoken words of encouragement to young musicians, no one will ever know, perhaps as many as crossties on a railroad because he got off to a young start.A native of Guntersville, Long began his musical career sitting on the piano stool next to his mother when he was six years old.As a high school band student, the trumpet was his instrument of choice. He also played with a dance band, the Howard Clowns. When the high school found itself without a band director, Long, who was a senior, was asked to fill the post. Long took the baton and has never let it go.After Long completed a tour with Uncle Sam, he enter the University of Alabama in pursuit of a law degree. However, when he had the opportunity to be the student band director at Jacksonville State College, he followed his heart. While there, he also directed a high school band and initiated the band flag line, which quickly caught on with other bands.At Jax State, Long met and fell head over heals in love with Mary Lynn Adams. The couple recently celebrated 62 years of happy marriage.After graduation, Long moved to Fort Payne and introduced a new marching style and unique halftime shows that brought great recognition to his bands.Robert E. Lee High School in Montgomery lured Long away. His bands there received national recognition. Long became known for his marching music. A title to which he quipped, “If you don’t play marches, if you don’t love marches, you don’t love your mother!”In 1965, Long left the high school ranks and founded the South of the South Marching Band at Troy University and led it to national prominence.Under his director, the Sound of the South represented the state in four presidential inaugural parades and served as the official band for two presidential visits to Alabama.During his 31-year career at Troy University, Long also served the University in various capacities, including chair of the music department, dean of the School of Arts and Sciences and dean of the School of Fine Arts. He is a past president of the AmericanBandmasters Association and is a member of the National Band Association’s Hall of Fame of Distinguished Band Conductors and the Alabama Bandmasters Hall of Fame.Two buildings on the Troy campus bear his name – John Maloy Long Hall and the Hawkins-Adams-Long Hall of Honor, which houses the NBA’s Hall of Fame.

People before strategy is key to greatness

first_img Comments are closed. The HR director is second only to the chief executive in terms of importancewithin the business, according to Jim Collins, keynote speaker at the CharteredInstitute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) conference. Collins, co-author of the renowned book Built to Last, believes HR has amajor responsibility to create pockets of greatness and, in a flawless present-ation, he explained how. For 75 minutes, delegates were treated to Collins’ passion for detailedresearch into what makes organisations grow and attain superior performance.His focus is all about moving from just being good to becoming great, bygetting and retaining enough of the right people. “Good-to-great leaders begin by getting the right people on the bus,the wrong people off the bus and the right people in the right seats – and thenwork out where to drive it,” he said. “Who is in the business comesfirst, and then the strategy, not the other way around.” Collins claimed that while high-profile leaders with big personalities makeheadlines, great leaders are very different. They are self-effacing, reserved,and have a blend of personal humility and professional will. These leaders havetremendous ambition for the cause, the company and the work – not forthemselves. By Jane KingTips for creating great companies:– Greatness is a cumulative process – not a single event.– Transformation happens with disciplined people, disciplinedthought and disciplined actions– Those who build greatness put people before strategy– Look for leaders who leave an impressive legacy when theymove on – is the company still doing well after they have departed?– Charismatic leaders can be a liability– Be radical about changes in practices, structures, goals andstrategies– Preserve core values and purpose – Give people freedom and responsibilities within a sharedframework     Related posts:No related photos.

Jay Group plans huge Hamilton Heights resi building

first_imgShare via Shortlink Views of 619 152nd Street (Google Maps)Joel Kohn’s Jay Group is planning to build one of the tallest residential buildings in Hamilton Heights on land owned by the Chetrit family.The 28-story, 238-unit building at 619 152nd Street will stand 285 feet tall, according to plans filed Tuesday with the Department of Buildings. In total, it will span about 250,000 square feet, including 12,000 square feet of community space. The development will have parking spots for 121 bicycles and 95 cars. J Frankl is listed as the architect of record.A representative for Jay Group declined to comment.The site has changed hands several times in the past few years: Brothers Eli and Isaac Chetrit closed on the site in May for about $29 million, and filed plans to demolish adjacent parking structures that same month. The brothers bought the site from Anbau, who purchased it from Verizon in 2018 for $22.5 million; its plans to build a condo never came to fruition.Originally, the Chetrits planned to build a luxury residential project spanning 135,000 square feet. But in November, plans for a condominium building at the site were canceled by architectural firm Peter F. Farinella, according to DOB records.This year, the Chetrits purchased a land parcel in Sheepshead Bay for $15.5 million, or $119 per square foot, with plans for a 200,000-square-foot project. But in a market frozen at times by the coronavirus, some of the family’s deals have fallen through, including buying the former New York Daily News Building and selling in the Diamond District.Contact Orion Jones Email Address* Message* Full Name* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink TagsCommercial Real EstateDevelopmentManhattanlast_img read more
