    The Writers Guild of America has voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike against film and television studios and streamers, which gives WGA negotiators licence to launch a work stoppage in the coming weeks. More than 9,000 screenwriters - nearly 98% of those casting ballots - voted to authorize a strike if the WGA cannot reach a new agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and TV producers by May 1. The guild said the balloting set a WGA record for both turnout (nearly 80% of those eligible voted) and support for a possible strike. **SNIP** The AMPTP further said, "Our...

    Does the AMA limit the number of doctors to increase current doctors' salaries? Asked 10 years, 1 month ago Active 11 months ago Viewed 21k times 45 7 A suggested reason why doctors get paid so much more in the US as opposed to other developed countries is that the American Medical Association (AMA) artificially limits the physician supply in order to drive up salaries. I found this article which blames the AMA, but gives as its only source Milton Friedman's book from 1962. A more recent article dates from 1986. Lew Rockwell also blames the AMA, but he also...

    An Oklahoma congressional candidate has apologized after he was caught taking his opponent’s campaign signs from a street corner -- just before the state’s primary election. Tom Guild, who bills himself as a progressive Democrat vying for Oklahoma’s 5th congressional district seat, was accused in a Facebook post of taking the signs of Kendra Horn, also a Democratic candidate. The Facebook post, which has been shared more than 100 times, included photos of Guild allegedly caught in the act. “Sometimes in the heat and rush of the campaign, mistakes are made,” Guild said in a statement to The Oklahoman. “On reflection, removing some...

    Hollywood is dealing with strike fever again, 10 years after the Writers Guild of America staged an acrimonious 100-day work stoppage. The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations and the NFL Players Assn. both issued strong statements of support Thursday. AFl-CIO President Richard Trumka cited WGA estimates that the major entertainment conglomerates made $51 billion in profits last year.“The members of the Writers Guilds deserve a fair return on their work at an incredibly profitable time for their industry,” he said.
  • National Constitution Center to Host Communist Front Group & Convicted Cop Killer Jamal

    National Constitution Center ^ | 6 Dec 2011 | Kevin Kelly OUR National Constitution Center has rented a room this Friday in Philadelphia, to a group that advocates for the VIOLENT overthrow of the U.S. Constitution for the purposes of giving a convicted cop killer, Mumia Abu Jamal a forum to call in from his prison cell. Not only is this yet another insult to widow Maureen Faulkner, but the fact that the staff at the NCC doesn't realize that it is not obligated to rent space to an organization that actively advocates for the overthrow of our society, shows you just how far we have fallen.

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – The US news agency the Associated Press (AP) laid off dozens of employees on Tuesday as part of a plan to reduce its global payroll by 10 percent this year, a union statement said. The News Media Guild, which covers some 1,300 AP editorial and technology unit staffers in the United States, said it did not have an exact number of layoffs because management had not yet formally notified it of the move. The Guild said it had been informed by members of more than 38 layoffs affecting Guild-covered managers, reporters, editors, photographers, and editorial assistants. It...

    It’s down to the wire. The U.S. House of Representatives will vote on the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA)—the Dominican Republic-Central American Free Trade Agreement—by July 28. CAFTA is a regional agreement between the U.S. and six Central American countries: Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and the Dominican Republic. CAFTA is another flawed trade deal that will sell out America's jobs and do nothing to pull people out of poverty in Central America and the Dominican Republic. Like its predecessor, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), CAFTA promises to “help” the United States economy and reduce...

That said, let me address the rest of this column to the people who really matter: the members of The Newspaper Guild. In case you missed it, for about a month I have been subjected to what I would characterize as a right-wing screed over some comments I made at the National Media Reform Conference in St. Louis on May 13. The comments (which I won’t repeat here) were...

    DENVER, December 21, 2004 ( - This November, the controversy over pro-abortion Catholic politicians has ended the association of the Catholic Lawyer's Guild with the Denver Archdiocese. Every year, various branches of a Catholic lawyer's association around the world gather to celebrate their profession with the Red Mass, a tradition that goes back to the Middle Ages. In most dioceses, the bishop or his delegate celebrates the Red Mass and the Guild gives an award to a Catholic politician. This year, the Denver group has invited pro-abortion Colorado Attorney General Ken Salazar, who won a Senate seat in the in...

And the risk increases by 16 percent with every kilogram of excess weight.Obesity could even trigger dimentia in older women, researchers discovered in a 24 year old study of Sweden.Team leader Dr. Deborah Gustafson said: 'Fat is a risk for women. Other studies have reported similar things.'More than a third of people are overweight. Researchers say obesity creates an...

    The Village Voice The Watchers by Janelle Nanos August 11 - 17, 2004 There are a few things to know when planning a protest in New York City. An archaic state law forbids multiple protesters from wearing identical masks at an event. Signs carried on sticks or poles are considered potential weapons and will be confiscated. And if you didn't know these facts already, you should at least get acquainted with the volunteer corps of legal observers. They do know the rules, and they're an essential element in preserving your right to free speech and assembly. Armed with neon-green...
