Change the Mascot Applauds Lancaster School Board Vote to Remove R-Word Nickname

Oneida Nation Homelands (NY) (PRWEB) March 16, 2015

The grassroots Change the Mascot Campaign, led by the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) and the Oneida Indian Nation, this evening praised a decision by the Lancaster Central School District Board to remove the R-word as the high school teams mascot.

NCAI Executive Director Jackie Pata and Oneida Nation Representative Ray Halbritter released the following statement:

“We offer our sincere congratulations to the Lancaster Central School District Board for their admirable choice. Tonight the people entrusted to teach our children stood up for what is right. They listened to all sides of the debate and arrived at a fair decision that demonstrates tolerance and respect, and embodies the values that we as Americans hold dear.”

In 2013, students at Cooperstown High School in New York voted to drop the R-word slur as their schools mascot.* Several of the leading student advocates later joined a Change the Mascot educational symposium in Washington, D.C. to talk about their efforts.

In December 2014, the Oklahoma City school board voted 8-0 to end the use of the dictionary-defined R-word slur by Capitol Hill High School after hearing impassioned pleas from students and community members. The Houston Independent School District also announced plans in 2014 to replace all “inflammatory” mascots including R*dskins.”**

Led by the National Congress of American Indians and the Oneida Indian Nation, Change the Mascot is a grassroots campaign that works to educate the public about the damaging effects on Native Americans arising from the continued use of the R-word. This civil and human rights movement has helped reshape the debate surrounding the Washington teams name and brought the issue to the forefront of social consciousness.

Since its launch, Change the Mascot has garnered support from a diverse coalition of prominent advocates including elected officials from both parties, Native American tribes, sports icons, leading journalists and news publications, civil and human rights organizations and religious leaders.

As Testosterone Lawsuits Grow, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Overwhelming Vote Calling for Further Study of Testosterone Heart Risks

New York, New York (PRWEB) September 20, 2014

As testosterone lawsuit (http://www.testosteronelawsuitcenter.com/) filings continue to grow in federal court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that advisors for the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) have voted overwhelmingly to recommend that prescription medications used to treat low testosterone in men be subjected to further study in order to investigate their cardiovascular risks. According to a report published on September 18th by Bloomberg.com, the panel of outside experts voted 20 to-1 to recommend that the manufacturers of testosterone treatments conduct such studies. Among other things, the advisors noted that current research looking at low testosterone therapy and cardiovascular side effects is inconclusive.*

Hundreds of testosterone lawsuits have been filed in U.S. courts on behalf of men who allegedly suffered heart attacks, strokes and other cardiovascular problems due to their use of prescription testosterone products. Additional study of this matter would certainly help clarify these potential risks, says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is offering free and confidential case reviews to individuals who allegedly have suffered heart attacks, strokes, dangerous blood clots and other serious heart events due to their use of testosterone treatment therapies.

Testosterone Litigation

Prescription testosterone treatments currently approved by the FDA include**:

Bio-T Gel

The FDA has been reviewing the potential cardiovascular risks associated with this class of medications since January, after two studies found a high rate of heart attacks, strokes and death in older men and those with preexisting heart problems who received testosterone therapy.***

Court documents indicate that at least 200 testosterone treatment lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturer of AndroGel, Axiron, Testim and similar medications on behalf of men who allegedly experienced serious heart problems due to their use. The majority of these claims are pending in a federal multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Northern of Illinois. (In re: Testosterone Replacement Therapy Product Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2545)

Men who allegedly experienced life-threatening heart events due to low testosterone therapy may be entitled to compensation for their injury-related damages, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Learn more about filing a testosterone treatment lawsuit by calling our Firm today at 800-511-5092.

Lake Michigan Mailers, Inc. Endorses a YES vote on Proposal 1 on the August 5th Michigan Ballot

Kalamazoo, MI (PRWEB) June 30, 2014

Lake Michigan Mailers, Inc. announced today its support for Proposal 1 that will appear on Michigans August 5th ballot.

Headquartered in Kalamazoo, Michigan Lake Michigan Mailers is a leading provider of document management, mail assembly, mail processing, presorting, data management, digital marketing and distribution services to companies, schools, colleges and universities, health care providers, governmental entities and organizations throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, and Australia.

Michigans current Personal Property Tax (PPT) serves a deterrent to growth for Michigans small business community and creates an inconsistent funding source for needed local government services such as police and fire protection, said David C. Rhoa, president of Lake Michigan Mailers, Inc. Unlike most of our neighboring states, Michigans Personal Property Tax creates a life-time tax liability for any small business that buys equipment or even office furniture. Such a liability makes Michigan less competitive with other states in attracting and growing business, said Rhoa. A yes vote on the Proposal 1 will eliminate the double taxation of small businesses, create a stable funding source for essential local government services, and best of all, will not raise taxes on individuals or businesses, Rhoa continued.

Support for a YES vote on Proposal 1 is wide and deep including all major business associations in Michigan, as well as, virtually all associations representing the needs of local governments and service personnel including Michigan Association of Police Chiefs, Michigan Association of Fire Chiefs, Michigan Municipal League, and Michigan Towhships Association.
