    Teleios Research analyzed the financial and work efficiency of secular versus Christian private related relief organizations operating in the United States. The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability's online database was used for the Christian-based organizations and Charity Navigator for the secular-based organizations. The Christian list was analyzed first and matched to similar organizations on the secular list that were active in at least three states. Types of organizations included in this evaluation were family and child, medical, education, urban development, poverty alleviation, and legal services. Types of organizations from the secular-based list unable to be matched to a Christian agency...

    Seattle Times ^ | 3/18/2018 | Lt. Col. Brian Fleming
    Do our youth really understand their country’s military? By Lt. Col. Brian Fleming When in uniform and far away from a military post, I am often greeted by strangers and thanked for my service. They have paid for my meals and treated me to coffee. I truly appreciate the recognition of service to our country and the value placed on being a veteran. However, I believe most do not fully understand what that service really means. The “volunteer” in our all-volunteer force is what makes the military successful. As an officer in the U.S. Army, I meet young people in...

    Houston Texans players are planning to protest as a unit before Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks in the wake of team owner Bob McNair's controversial "inmates running the prison" comment, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Texans held a players meeting Saturday in Seattle to decide how to handle Sunday after McNair's comments surfaced, the source said. Texans left tackle Duane Brown told ESPN's Josina Anderson on Sunday morning that he anticipates that "up to 65 to 70 percent" of the team's players could kneel. He said the players would not remove the team's decals from their...

    NEW THINKING NEW THINKING   Want to help Puerto Rico recover? Amateur analysts of satellite imagery around the world are pointing relief workers to where they are needed most. Anyone can do it! PARIS—As President Trump paid his visit to hurricane-wracked Puerto Rico on Tuesday a small army of individuals, sitting at their desks far from the spotlight and scattered around the globe, were doing their anonymous bit to put the ravaged island back together again. They are a new breed of “digital humanitarians.” Crowdsourcing the raw data of hurricane Maria’s trail of destruction, they are helping artificial intelligence experts...

    WORKING TOGETHER   On Tuesday, the capital held drills for the anniversary of its 1985 earthquake. Hours later, alarms went off again – but not for a drill. 'We've learned to jump in and help instead of waiting,' says a volunteer, one of many who rushed to help. MEXICO CITY—Baruch García stood at an intersection Tuesday afternoon after a deadly earthquake, trying to direct traffic away from a road cutting through La Condesa’s lush Parque México. On the other side of the park, hundreds of volunteers – from a young boy in a yellow soccer uniform, to a woman in...

    Working Together - Single-purpose, assistive devices have given way to more accessible – and affordable – apps. Perhaps just as valuable is the glimpse into the capable lives of people with limited vision that apps like BlindWays offer. SEPTEMBER 11, 2017 —When asked how technology might improve the lives of people with vision impairments, Joann Becker presented a deceptively simple challenge. “Well,” the tech specialist recalls saying, “I’d like to be able to find my bus stop.” Navigating Boston’s transit system can be challenging for any commuter. But for blind riders, like Ms. Becker, each bus stop and train...

    Team Trump | 8/27/16 | georgiegirl
    Dear Freepers, are any of you volunteering for Team Trump in your state? I did that here in California for the primaries, now I have been invited by Team Trump to volunteer for the general. I am just a bit confused as to the script or template the Team is using. If any of you are also volunteers, is it clear to you how to make the calls and what to ask the caller? It would be great to chat with another volunteer.

    When Lisa Barry went knocking on doors in support of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz's presidential campaign in Iowa, she felt two shocks to her system. The first was the two-degree temperature outside. The second was the woman behind the first door Barry knocked on.When the woman answered the door, she could see liquid in Barry's eyes had already frozen, so she invited the Southeast Texan into her home.That was the experience Barry and others like her came away with, noting that while some Iowans have grown weary of presidential caucus time, many of them showed compassion for the foot soldiers.Barry,...

    Boston Globe ^ | 7 Dec 14 | Stephen Kinzer
    Who is a hero? In today’s America, it is someone who chooses a military career, puts on a uniform, and prepares for war. Placing soldiers and veterans on this kind of pedestal is a relatively new phenomenon. Past generations of Americans saw soldiers as ordinary human beings. They were like the rest of us: big and small, smart and dumb, capable of good and bad choices. Now we pretend they are demi-gods. One reason Americans have come to view soldiers as our only protectors is that we have accepted the idea that our country is under permanent threat from fanatics...

    The first volunteer in a fast-tracked British safety trial of an experimental Ebola vaccine made by GlaxoSmithKline received the injection on Wednesday, trial organisers said. The candidate Ebola vaccine, which GSK co-developed with the U.S. National Institutes of Health, has also been given to 10 volunteers taking part in a similar separate trial in the United States, and so far there were no signs of any serious adverse reactions, doctors said. The vaccine being tested in the UK is designed to specifically target the Zaire strain of Ebola, the one circulating in the West Africa epidemic, the worst Ebola outbreak...

    The State of California continues its war on productive activity, fining a small family-owned winery that earns $11,000 a year a whopping $115,000 for the crime of inviting volunteers to learn about wine while helping out with the harvest and the crush. That is enough to drive it out of business, and the winery is starting to lauch a going out of business sale in response.Rebecca Parr reports in the San Jose Mercury-News: A small-time vintner's use of volunteer workers has put him out of business after the state squeezed him like a late-summer grape for $115,000 in fines --...

    Ladies and gentlemen, be careful who you volunteer for — you could be doing them a lot more harm than good. The federal government sometimes takes dim view of such generosity. Just ask Rhea Lana Riner. She owns a small Arkansas-based business that organizes consignment sales. Since August, the Labor Department has been threatening her with stiff financial penalties, saying her business practices are illegal. It has even been contacting donors to her events and encouraging them to instigate legal action against her. Why? Well, the department says Riner cannot legally allow the people who provide items for sale to...
