If there ever needed to be more evidence that the globalist elite cabal and their minions in the Biden-Harris regime were manufacturing shortages, we simply need to look at the various situations forming a perfect storm of crises. There is nothing natural about shortages hitting food, energy, medications, and pretty much everything else at the same time. And no, it's not "Russia Russia Russia" that's causing it all to happen.The only thing we don't have a shortage of is more authoritarian government. Our dystopian future is forming before our eyes as DC plunges us deeper into debt both as a nation as well as for individuals and families. It's all leading us toward "necessary" centralization of monetary control through central bank digital currencies. They don't want to force most Americans to accept the Digital Dollar. They want a majority to be begging for them.The easiest people to control are those who ask to be controlled. Readers of my articles and listeners of my shows are generally adamantly opposed to being controlled, expanding government, or embracing the various public-private partnerships that are popping up in every industry. But we're a dwindling minority. No, that's not to say that a majority of Americans are budding Neo-Marxists. Our problem isn't with ideology. Our problem is with passion. Even many who oppose such things as CBDCs will not fight by our side against them. They'll begrudgingly accept them because everyone else is. The herd mentality, even among most individualists and patriots, is becoming all-too common.It's as if many if not most conservatives have given up. This is by design.On today's episode of The JD Rucker Show, I dove into three articles that highlight various challenges that we're suddenly facing. They're not really "sudden," of course; all of these things are part of long-standing plans that have been trickling out for years, even decades. The problem is we weren't ready to fight them in their infancy and now that they're becoming full-blown realities, most of us are struggling just to feed our families. This, too, is by design.

Pilgrims, Indians, the myth of the grateful colonized person — it's been at the core of a persistent but false Thanksgiving narrative that has distorted the true relationship between Indigenous Peoples and white colonizers dating back to Plymouth Rock. As many of us observe Thanksgiving and Indigenous Peoples' Day, the new federal holiday, Judith LeBlanc, executive director of the Native Organizers Alliance, reminds us that “people are questioning.” In the midst of a national reckoning with white supremacy and colonial history, Indigenous people are demanding a new relationship with DC — honoring the traditional, legal, and moral rights of Native nations. In 2021, a group of Native organizers invited Laura to travel with a 25-foot totem pole from the Lummi Nation in Washington State to Washington D.C. stopping for ceremonies in communities under threat and gathering messages for the Biden-Harris administration. In DC they held a historic meeting with Interior Secretary Deb Haaland. In this episode, we hear what happened in that meeting, how Native movements are changing, among other myths, the Thanksgiving story, and where a Red Road to the future might lead us — if we followed it. November is National American Indian Heritage Month.“. . . When Native peoples are taking a stand, whether it's no DAPL at Standing Rock or the Keystone XL Pipeline . . . it's not just a Native American issue. We're defending the water and the land for tens of millions of Americans.” - Crystal Echo Hawk“Laws and policies were written without considering Indigenous communities' challenges or their strengths . . . Today and every day, we break barriers to those institutions and systems that were designed to keep us out.” - Secretary of the Interior, Deb Haaland“We're hoping this Thanksgiving, people take a look at what has happened in this country when it comes to reckoning with systemic racism . . .  We bring the idea that we're all in relationship.” - Judith LeBlancGuests:Crystal Echo Hawk: IllumiNative, Founder & CEOJudith LeBlanc: Director, Native Organizers AllianceMari Margil: Executive Director, Center for Democratic and Environmental RightsAnahkwet/Guy Reiter: Executive Director, Menīkānaehkem Community RebuildersFaith Spotted Eagle: Ihanktonwon Dakota Elder & Brave Heart Society Kunsi Member The show is made possible by listeners like you.

E187: FDAs role in the national strategy to end hunger

The Leading Voices in Food

In September of 2022, the White House held the first conference focused on hunger, nutrition, and health, in 50 years. The convening served as the Biden-Harris administration's call-to-action to end hunger, and increase healthy eating, and the physical activity among Americans, by the year 2030. But how successful was this event in actually catalyzing a national strategy? We'll hear perspectives on this from Dr. Susan Mayne, Director of the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition at the Food and Drug Administration. Interview Summary   Susan, I've respected your work for so many years. First, as a scientist - we were together on the faculty at Yale for a number of years. And now you work in government too. So it's really nice to hear the word "perspectives." So let me ask this as the first question. What do you think was the best thing that came out of the White House Conference?   From my perspective, it really drew a huge focus on the problem that we have been facing for a long time. The epidemic of diet-related chronic diseases, and how having good nutrition really can help reduce those diseases. As you know very well, this is something I've been working on for my entire career. What the White House Conference did is it really put a focus on that, provided inspiration and commitment to action, associated with this White House Conference. There were two very important deliverables that came along with that. The first one is a roadmap of actions that the federal government can take. In the “all of government” approach to end hunger and reduce diet-related diseases, while reducing disparities. The second deliverable is really a number of other commitments that others have made to really tackle this problem. I think we see this as a really great opportunity to accelerate the efforts that we have been trying to do, to get to a healthier food supply, and turn the tide on the epidemic of diet-related chronic disease that we have in this country.   Let's talk about what the FDA can do in particular. There aren't many people out there who probably know the full portfolio of FDA activities around food, because there are a number of them. So how do you think FDA can make a difference with this goal to end hunger, and to prevent diet-related diseases?   Yes, there are many ways the FDA can make a very big difference, and we have several deliverables in the White House strategy that really take advantage of two things that we do. One is through our labeling authorities, and we can discuss some of the labeling authorities and how those can really help turn the tide on diet-related chronic diseases. But we're also working to have a healthier food supply for all, using tools outside of our labeling authorities. It's really that combination of things that we can do, and how that can be leveraged by other federal agencies, so that we can be part of the solution. Obviously, FDA can't solve this problem alone, this is a multifaceted problem. The problem of diet-related chronic disease, it requires multifaceted solutions. But FDA is proud to be part of the federal workforce that's really trying to impact this problem of diet-related chronic disease.   When you mention "a healthy food supply," in the context of FDA, some people would automatically think "That's all about food safety, let's make sure we don't have foodborne illnesses." That's, of course, important, but you're talking about a different thing: the long-term health consequences of food. FDA has a role there too, I'm suspecting?   Yes, we do. And our title, the name of the center that I lead, is the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition. So nutrition has always been a foundation of what FDA does, and much of our work actually intersects the two together. And I'll just give you one example is the work we are doing on food safety, for example, to get to better produce safety, so we have fewer outbreaks related to produce. That's also critically important for our work on nutrition, because we want consumers to have confidence in fresh produce, consume more of it, to be more consistent with what the dietary guidelines recommends, and that instead will improve nutrition. So food safety and nutrition are both interrelated in the work that we do at FDA.   If the goal is for people to be able to eat healthier foods, part of that is people knowing how healthy foods are. So how do you work on that issue?   Well, a couple things to emphasize, one is that education is critically important. And, when it comes to education around health and nutrition, we partner with the US Department of Agriculture, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in a lot of these educational efforts to educate consumers, to make sure that they know what healthy eating should look like. But interestingly, another piece of this is that if you ask consumers where they go to, and who they trust for nutrition information, they will frequently tell you that their most trusted source is their doctors. It's also important, not just that the federal agencies are working on this, but medical professionals also really need to be educated about nutrition, so that they can help their patients. We have produced some continuing education models for physicians on food labeling, and how they can use that to counsel their patients. I would like to see more nutrition incorporated into the medical exams and board certifications. So we incentivize more nutrition training for physicians, and some of these concepts are built into the national strategy on nutrition, released around the White House Conference.   You've mentioned food labeling several times, and when people think about food labels, they naturally think of the ingredient label, and they think of the nutrition facts panel that's on the side, or the back of packages. But there's been talk over the years about the possibility of some sort of a labeling system on the front of the package, which would be a quick guide for consumers to understand how healthy a food might be overall. I'm just not aware of where discussions stand in FDA about that now, and I'm hoping you might bring us up to date.   Happy to. You know, we look at food labeling holistically. There are different claims that we regulate on food labels, things like a healthy claim that currently exists that we've been working to update. Those are claims that we regulate. You asked specifically about front-of-pack labeling. As part of the national strategy on nutrition, we did make a commitment to work on developing a front-of-pack labeling scheme that could help consumers make those types of decisions quickly, through front-of-pack labeling. So there are many labeling tools that we have, whether it be claims around healthy, dietary guidance statements, front-of-pack labeling. In addition to the nutrition facts labels and ingredient statements. Those are all pieces that can really help inform consumers about the foods that they are purchasing.   You have to look around the world at these front-of-pack package labeling systems, there are lots of different types. I mean, some are like a stoplight program, with red, yellow, and green symbols to indicate how much overall nutrition, or unhealthy things that food might have. Others talk about specific ingredients. Is there a consensus around the field now about which of those systems might be most effective and helpful to consumers?   So, one of the things we've been doing is really looking at that international landscape. We have learned a lot about what different countries are doing, and what those countries have learned about the various systems. As part of our commitment to develop a front-of-pack label system in the United States, we are learning from the vast international experience that is out there. We are in early phases of this, but I can assure you that FDA's work will be informed by what's happening in the international landscape. At the same time, we are interested in how our own consumers respond to different front-of-pack labeling systems. We have begun, and completed, a first-round of consumer studies. We have a consumer studies branch in my center where we test how consumers interact with various labeling systems. So we've completed some qualitative research, some focus groups, and we're looking forward to additional consumer research that would help guide us being informed by our own work, as well as what's happened in other countries, in terms of a potential path forward for the US.   I'm really happy to hear that, because that kind of work in the United States needed to be done in the kind of big way, you're probably able to do it. So I'm really happy to hear that news. So if you come upon a system that you feel might work best in our own country, what's the process for actually having something like that on packages? I mean, does Congress need to approve? Is that something the FDA can do on its own? What sort of route might it take?   I can't foreshadow specifically which route we would take, but FDA will issue guidance, or regulations, in terms of where we would be going. Under any scenario, it's important to us that we get public comment on anything that we would be doing. So for example, we could issue a proposed rule on a particular labeling pathway, that would then go through a public comment process before we would make anything final. A key part of all of this work is extensive stakeholder engagement, and that means hearing from a number of different stakeholders; our consumer groups, the academic sector, the industry, to provide information into our process. There would be multiple places where we get input for any system that we would be moving forward. It obviously would involve extensive public comment before we would finalize the next steps.   It'll be really interesting to see what happens with that. And ultimately, what we might find on the front of packages in the United States. Let's return to the national strategy. The national strategy discusses all of the government response. You mentioned before connecting, with CDC, USDA, other parts of government. Are there some examples you could give us about how different government agencies can work together to make progress? How that might work, and what kind of issues might be involved?   Sure, with regard to some of our own work, for example, we're not only using our labeling authorities, but we've also taken other steps to have a healthier food supply. I'll give you one example, and that's our work to reduce sodium in packaged foods. We have issued targets for industry to level the playing field, and gradually reduce the amount of sodium in the food supply. Our sodium targets hit not only packaged foods, but also restaurant and retail as well. What we've done in the national strategy is we've talked about how other government partners can leverage FDA's sodium work. For example, the VA, the Veteran's Administration, they are planning to increase procurement of lower sodium foods consistent with FDA's targets. We're also partnering with HHS administration for community livings administration on aging, to help older adult nutrition programs. That they would provide lower sodium options consistent with FDA's targets. USDA has been using FDA's targets as they're working to reduce sodium in school meals. This is an example where FDA can take an action, and it can be leveraged and amplified, including through the power of procurement through the federal government, to get to a healthier food supply for all.   I'm really happy you mentioned "procurement," because you're right, that can be very powerful, and the government has so much sway in that respect. This is the final question, let me just follow up on this sodium issue, because I think it's really an interesting one. Consumers might hear the term "lower sodium," and think that means lower taste. I think the strategy that some people have discussed is that the diet became high in sodium without people really knowing so much that it was happening. People just got accustomed to a very high level of sodium in their day-to-day foods. But that if it gradually got reduced, it would happen in a way that consumers wouldn't even notice each little decline, because it would be gradual. But they'd become re-calibrated to a new standard that they would find just as pleasant, it would just be lower in sodium. Is that kind of the way the thinking goes?   That is a key part of our sodium strategy. What we heard from the food industry is that if they tried to reduce sodium in foods to promote better nutrition that consumers might recognize that those products tasted different from other foods that had not been reduced in sodium. That in order for us to make progress, we needed to level the playing field, so all of the industry was reducing sodium incrementally at the same time. The reason this can work is because sodium is an adaptive taste, and so we can all adapt to these lower sodium foods. Consumers wouldn't even notice these minor adjustments as you begin to ratchet down the amount of sodium in the food supply. These changes can help, gradually, across a population, have really important health benefits.   Bio   Susan Mayne is the Director of the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In this position, Dr. Mayne leads the Center's development and implementation of programs and policies related to the safety and labeling of foods, food and color additives, and cosmetics.

Today's sponsor is Genesis Gold: https://jdrucker.com/metalsThe precious metals market has always been considered ideal for older Americans with their investments and retirement. The returns are steady and the risks are generally considered to be lower than having money tied up in the markets. It behooves those who want to protect what they've accumulated to move some or all of their investments into gold and silver, but over the past few months we've seen the ranks of younger Americans joining their older fellow citizens in jumping to precious metals.Jonathan Rose from Genesis Gold, a Christian precious metals company, joined me again today to discuss this phenomenon. Is it just that the Biden-Harris economy is so bad, fewer people are wanting to stay in riskier markets? There's actually more to it than that. I'll be asking Mr. Rose about inflation, how interest rates are affecting Americans' wealth and retirement, and what we can expect in the months and years to come.The red wave that should be coming on Election Day will almost certainly have limited effect on the economy itself. Republican majorities will be able to slow the bleeding, but unless they can miraculously win super-majorities in both chambers that would allow them to overturn presidential vetoes, they will not be able to pass significant economic bills that become low. This is just another reason precious metals are becoming more popular to those who want to ride out the storm.Contact Jonathan at https://jdrucker.com/metals

At the age of 22, Ted received a political appointment to serve in the White House of President Ronald Reagan, which ignited his passion for traditional conservatism. After returning home, Ted quickly became involved in Colorado politics, working as a staffer in the Colorado State House and then as the Program Director of the Independence Institute, a Denver-based think tank. Ted also served as the District Office Manager for Representative Joel Hefley (R-CO). In December 2001, through a vacancy election, Ted was elected to the Colorado House of Representatives and became a conservative champion inside the State House. He was re-elected in both 2002 and 2004, and then elected to the Colorado State Senate in 2006 and 2010. Ted's patriotic work continues today. He was a founding member and Chairman of the Stop Hillary PAC, re-named the Committee to Defend the President following the election of President Trump in 2016. It was one of the largest pro-Trump super PACs in the country: Under Ted's leadership, the Committee spent more than $20 million in Independent Expenditures to support Republican causes, while contributing over $509,000 directly to Republican candidates and incumbents. Ted has been elected as a Colorado delegate to four of the last five Republican National Conventions including 2016 and 2020.

In this episode, guest Kheira Bekkadja, a Muslim Algerian American college student making an impact in mental health, inspires listeners with her insights on grounding in self-care and positive affirmations. As an example, she shares the Muslim practice of praying five times, at set times during the day, as challenging as it can be to stay persistent.  There are movements that go with the prayer, including putting the forehead on the floor, which helps release negative energy and connect with God. “My faith is what rejuvenates me,” Kheira says. Surrounding oneself with good people is another way she recommends staying grounded.    Topics covered in this interview: Kheira juggles being a college student, majoring in civil engineering, and doing mental health advocacy work. The importance of finding ways to “fill your cup” as it's very easy to get burned out and saturated working in mental health.  The ways she builds bridges structurally (through civil engineering) and by de-stigmatizing mental health. Kheira's selection for, and later participation in, the MTV Youth Action Forum sponsored by the Biden-Harris administration. The goal of the Forum is to “share and tell everyone healing is within you.” She continues working on creating culturally relevant campaigns for MTV. She and Dr. Alfiee both share poignant moments of what it was like to be at the White House that day, when the Forum came together, and meeting the president and his wife, and being in the nation's capital. Kheira's desire to be a role model, especially after not seeing herself fully reflected back with other Muslim Algerian Americans in the audience- as beautifully diverse and culturally rich as it was. She shares many inspiring quotes of self-talk and how she empowers herself, and listens to others with empathy versus judgment.   About Kheira Bekkadja: Kheira Bekkadja is a second-year student at George Mason University, working to build bridges [literally] by studying civil & infrastructure engineering and [figuratively] de-stigmatizing mental health and youth empowerment.  Through her experiences as being a Muslim Algerian American Woman, Kheira worked alongside Our Minds Matter (OMM) which has enabled her with the courage to openly speak up about her challenges in hopes of inspiring others to be the healthiest versions of themselves.

In this episode, guest Kheira Bekkadja, a Muslim Algerian American college student making an impact in mental health, inspires listeners with her insights on grounding in self-care and positive affirmations. As an example, she shares the Muslim practice of praying five times, at set times during the day, as challenging as it can be to stay persistent.  There are movements that go with the prayer, including putting the forehead on the floor, which helps release negative energy and connect with God. “My faith is what rejuvenates me,” Kheira says. Surrounding oneself with good people is another way she recommends staying grounded.    Topics covered in this interview: Kheira juggles being a college student, majoring in civil engineering, and doing mental health advocacy work. The importance of finding ways to “fill your cup” as it's very easy to get burned out and saturated working in mental health.  The ways she builds bridges structurally (through civil engineering) and by de-stigmatizing mental health. Kheira's selection for, and later participation in, the MTV Youth Action Forum sponsored by the Biden-Harris administration. The goal of the Forum is to “share and tell everyone healing is within you.” She continues working on creating culturally relevant campaigns for MTV. She and Dr. Alfiee both share poignant moments of what it was like to be at the White House that day, when the Forum came together, and meeting the president and his wife, and being in the nation's capital. Kheira's desire to be a role model, especially after not seeing herself fully reflected back with other Muslim Algerian Americans in the audience- as beautifully diverse and culturally rich as it was. She shares many inspiring quotes of self-talk and how she empowers herself, and listens to others with empathy versus judgment.   About Kheira Bekkadja: Kheira Bekkadja is a second-year student at George Mason University, working to build bridges [literally] by studying civil & infrastructure engineering and [figuratively] de-stigmatizing mental health and youth empowerment.  Through her experiences as being a Muslim Algerian American Woman, Kheira worked alongside Our Minds Matter (OMM) which has enabled her with the courage to openly speak up about her challenges in hopes of inspiring others to be the healthiest versions of themselves. She has also had the chance to share her story at Harvard University's National Muslim Women's Summit 2020, The Global Health Leaders Conference at Johns Hopkins University, and advocate with VOICE-IAF, This is My Brave, and Promote Care Prevent Harm. This past May, Kheira had the incredible and life-changing opportunity to be selected as one of the mental health youth action forum participants where she and the #HiddenHealers team are working to cultivate creative mental health campaigns to help inspire culturally-relevant healing and action.

Dating back to 1987 and the Goldwater-Nichols Act, the National Security Strategy (NSS) has become perhaps the most powerful single document to communicate the Executive branch's vision to Congress, the American people, the many departments of the U.S federal government, as well as foreign friends and foes. When President Biden took office in January 2021, his administration produced an interim NSS that many nicknamed the "skinny NSS" and released it March of that year. On 12 October 2022, the Biden-Harris administration released an updated NSS. We've got Carrie A. Lee and J.P. Clark in the studio to examine the contents of the new document and talk about what has changed, what is emphasized and what the new NSS communicates to the world. They join podcast editor Ron Granieri to highlight the themes and messages in the new product that is now twice as large as the original interim NSS.

El Departamento de Educación de EE. UU. (ED, por sus siglas en inglés) está proporcionando este alivio único de la deuda como parte del plan de alivio de la deuda estudiantil de la Administración Biden-Harris. Presente su solicitud ahora Solicite el alivio de la deuda de préstamos para estudiantes > Solicite hoy mismo (a más tardar el 31 de diciembre de 2023). Llenar la solicitud es fácil y toma unos 5 minutos. No necesita iniciar sesión ni proporcionar ningún documento. Pronto pondremos a disposición una versión impresa del formulario para aquellos que no puedan enviar su solicitud en línea. Tendrá hasta finales de 2023 para enviar su solicitud. Cuánto puede obtener en alivio de la deuda Hasta $20,000 en alivio de la deuda si recibió una Beca Federal Pell en la universidad y cumple con los requisitos de ingresos Hasta $10,000 en alivio de la deuda si no recibió una Beca Federal Pell en la universidad y cumple con los requisitos de ingresos El alivio de la deuda se aplica solo al saldo de préstamos que tenía antes del 30 de junio de 2022. Cualquier préstamo nuevo desembolsado a partir del 1 de julio de 2022 no puede recibir el alivio de la deuda. Se aplican otras reglas a los préstamos de consolidación. ¿Mi alivio de la deuda estará sujeto a impuestos? ¿Qué sucede si no quiero recibir el alivio de la deuda? Ver si cumple con los requisitos Puede recibir alivio de la deuda si tiene préstamos federales que reúnen los requisitos y cumple con los siguientes requisitos de ingresos: Estado civil a efectos de la declaración de impuestos Ingresos de 2020 o 2021 (basado en el AGI*) No presentó una declaración de impuestos Ganó menos de los ingresos requeridos para presentar una declaración de impuestos federales Soltero(a) Menores a $125,000 Casado(a), presentó sus impuestos por separado Menores a $125,000 Casado(a), presentó sus impuestos conjuntamente Menores a $250,000 Cabeza de familia Menores a $250,000 Viudo(a) que reúne los requisitos Menores a $250,000 *Si presentó una declaración de impuestos federales, sus requisitos de ingresos se basan en su ingreso bruto ajustado (AGI, por sus siglas en inglés), que tiende a ser más bajo que su ingreso total. Su AGI se encuentra en la línea 11 del formulario 1040 del IRS. Debe cumplir con los criterios de ingresos para 2020 o 2021, pero no es necesario que los cumpla para ambos años. Si tiene préstamos federales para estudiantes autorizados y cumple con los requisitos de ingresos, no importa si ha estado pagando activamente sus préstamos o si está estudiando, se encuentra en período de gracia o está en condición de incumplimiento de pago. Estudiantes de pregrado matriculados recientemente Estas son algunas de las razones por las que es probable que se le clasifique como alumno dependiente a efectos de la ayuda federal para estudiantes: Estaba matriculado como estudiante de pregrado entre el 1 de julio de 2021 y el 30 de junio de 2022. Nació después del 1 de enero de 1998. No está casado(a). Conozca otras razones por las que podría ser clasificado como alumno dependiente. Como alumno dependiente, usted tiene derecho a recibir la misma cantidad de alivio de la deuda que los demás, pero su derecho a participar se basa en los ingresos de uno o ambos padres, no en sus propios ingresos. Debe solicitar el alivio de la deuda utilizando su propia información de ingresos. Si lo clasificamos como alumno dependiente, le enviaremos un correo electrónico con instrucciones para usted y sus padres. Hasta entonces, no necesita hacer nada excepto enviar su solicitud. Padres con préstamos para estudiantes autorizados Si usted es un padre con préstamos propios autorizados, incluidos los préstamos PLUS para padres, puede enviar su propia Solicitud de alivio de la deuda de préstamos para estudiantes. Su solicitud se tramitará por separado de la que envíe su hijo(a). Preguntas frecuentes sobre las Becas Pell Si recibí una Beca Pell, ¿debo hacer algo para obtener los $20,000 totales en alivio de la deuda? ¿Cómo sé si recibí una Beca Pell? Las Becas Federales Pell generalmente se otorgan a estudiantes de pregrado con ingresos bajos o moderados. No necesitará proporcionar prueba de su Beca Pell cuando presente la solicitud, pero si quiere saber si recibió una, inicie sesión en StudentAid.gov y vaya a “Mi ayuda económica”. Nota: Si recibió una Beca Pell antes de 1994, esa información no se mostrará en StudentAid.gov, pero tenga la seguridad de que la tenemos en su registro y recibirá hasta $20,000 en alivio de la deuda si cumple con los requisitos de ingresos. Si tengo préstamos PLUS para padres y mi hijo(a) recibió una Beca Pell, ¿se pueden adjudicar los $20,000 totales en alivio de la deuda a mis préstamos PLUS para padres? No. Si un estudiante recibió una Beca Pell, se adjudicarán hasta $20,000 en alivio de la deuda a los préstamos del estudiante—no a los préstamos que sus padres hayan obtenido. Un padre que haya obtenido préstamos —incluidos préstamos para sus propios estudios o préstamos PLUS para padres para su hijo— puede tener derecho al alivio de la deuda si cumple con los criterios de participación en base a sus ingresos. Si un padre también recibió una Beca Pell para sus propios estudios, el padre prestatario puede tener derecho a recibir hasta $20,000 de alivio en sus préstamos federales. De lo contrario, el padre prestatario puede tener derecho a recibir un alivio de la deuda de hasta $10,000. Cuáles préstamos federales reúnen los requisitos El alivio de la deuda se aplica a los siguientes tipos de préstamos estudiantiles federales desembolsados (cuando recibió los fondos del préstamo) en o antes del 30 de junio de 2022: Préstamos del Programa federal de préstamos educativos William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program Préstamos del programa Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFEL) que son propiedad del ED o se encuentran en situación de incumplimiento de pago en una agencia garante de préstamos Préstamos del Programa Federal de Préstamos Perkins que son propiedad del ED Préstamos en incumplimiento de pago (incluidos los Préstamos Stafford con y sin subsidio del interés, los préstamos PLUS para padres, los préstamos PLUS para estudiantes de posgrado que son propiedad del ED o administrados comercialmente; y los préstamos Perkins que son propiedad del ED) Esto significa que los préstamos con y sin subsidio del interés, los préstamos PLUS para padres y los préstamos PLUS para estudiantes de posgrado que son propiedad del ED reúnen los requisitos de participación. Los préstamos de consolidación también reúnen los requisitos para el alivio, siempre y cuando todos los préstamos subyacentes que se consolidaron sean préstamos propiedad del ED y se hayan desembolsado en o antes del 30 de junio de 2022. Además, los préstamos de consolidación compuestos por cualquier préstamo FFEL o Perkins que no son propiedad del ED también son reúnen los requisitos, siempre y cuando el prestatario haya solicitado la consolidación antes del 29 de septiembre de 2022. Los préstamos privados (es decir, préstamos no federales) no pueden recibir el alivio de la deuda. Cómo encontrar sus préstamos y las entidades administradoras de préstamos Inicie sesión en StudentAid.gov y seleccione “Mi ayuda económica” en el menú desplegable debajo de su nombre en la parte superior derecha de su pantalla. La sección “Mi ayuda económica” le mostrará las entidades administradoras de sus préstamos. El “Desglose de préstamos” le mostrará una lista de los préstamos que recibió. También verá los préstamos que pagó o consolidó en un nuevo préstamo. Si expande “Ver préstamos” y selecciona la flecha “Ver detalles del préstamo” debajo de un préstamo, verá el nombre más detallado de ese préstamo (junto con otra información al respecto). Los Préstamos del Direct Loan Program comienzan con la palabra “Direct”. Los Préstamos Educativos del Federal Family Education Loan Program comienzan con la palabra “FFEL”. Los Préstamos Perkins incluyen la palabra “Perkins” en su nombre. Si el nombre de la entidad administradora comienza con “Dept. of Ed” o “Default Management Collection System”, su préstamo del Programa FFEL o Préstamo Perkins está administrado por el gobierno federal (es decir, es propiedad del ED). Solo los préstamos federales reúnen los requisitos de participación para el alivio de la deuda. Los préstamos privados no reúnen los requisitos de participación y no se mostrarán en su panel. Preguntas frecuentes sobre préstamos calificados ¿Los préstamos en incumplimiento de pago tienen derecho a recibir el alivio de la deuda? ¿Los préstamos privados (es decir, préstamos no federales) pueden recibir el alivio de la deuda? ¿Los préstamos PLUS para padres y los préstamos PLUS para estudiantes de posgrado reúnen los requisitos de participación para el alivio de la deuda? ¿Los préstamos del Programa federal de préstamos educativos Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFEL) o los Préstamos Perkins reúnen los requisitos de participación para el alivio de la deuda? Reembolsos por pagos anteriores Si realizó pagos voluntarios durante la pausa en los pagos (desde el 13 de marzo de 2020 hasta el 31 de diciembre de 2022), y el saldo actual de su préstamo está por debajo del monto del alivio de la deuda que recibirá, después de que solicite y reciba con éxito el alivio de la deuda bajo el plan de alivio de la deuda de la Administración, le reembolsaremos automáticamente el monto que pagó durante la pausa en los pagos (solo hasta el monto restante del alivio autorizado de su deuda). Ejemplo Por ejemplo, supongamos que usted tiene derecho a recibir $10,000 en alivio de la deuda. Si actualmente debe $9,500, esa cantidad de alivio se adjudicará a sus préstamos. Si pagó $1,000 durante la pausa en los pagos, se le reembolsarán automáticamente $500—el monto restante de sus $10,000 de alivio de la deuda. No se necesita ninguna acción adicional. Simplemente envíe su Solicitud de alivio de la deuda de préstamos para estudiantes. Si realizó pagos durante la pausa en los pagos y su saldo actual es mayor que el monto del alivio de la deuda que recibe, no obtendrá un reembolso automático después de que solicite el alivio de la deuda. Esto se debe a que el monto total del alivio de la deuda se aplicará al saldo de su préstamo. Si aún desea recibir un reembolso por los pagos voluntarios que realizó durante la pausa en los pagos, comuníquese con la entidad administradora de sus préstamos. Es importante tener en cuenta que estos pagos reembolsados aumentarán el saldo de su préstamo y sus pagos mensuales. Si consolidó su préstamo después del 13 de marzo de 2020, los reembolsos no están disponibles para ningún pago realizado antes de la consolidación. Además, el pago final realizado al volver a financiar un préstamo privado estudiantil no es apto para un reembolso. Las solicitudes de reembolso solo pueden ser realizadas por usted y reembolsadas a usted, incluso si otra persona realizó el pago de su préstamo. Si un tercero, como por ejemplo un empleador, realizó los pagos en su nombre, usted es responsable de coordinar cualquier parte de la devolución que le corresponda al tercero. Después de solicitar Nota: Si ya le notificamos que su alivio de la deuda se tramitará sin presentar una solicitud, puede pasar al punto 5 a continuación. 1. Recibirá una confirmación por correo electrónico. Después de enviar su solicitud de alivio de la deuda de préstamos estudiantiles, recibirá una confirmación por correo electrónico. El estado de su solicitud no se mostrará en su cuenta de StudentAid.gov. 2. Revisaremos su solicitud. Una vez que envíe su solicitud, la revisaremos para confirmar que tiene derecho a recibir el alivio de la deuda. 3. Nos comunicaremos con usted si necesitamos más información. Si no tenemos suficiente información registrada para confirmar su derecho a participar, le enviaremos un correo electrónico con instrucciones. Estas son algunas razones por las que podemos hacer un seguimiento con usted: Necesitamos documentación para verificar sus ingresos. Si usted se inscribió como alumno dependiente en cualquier momento entre el 1 de julio de 2021 y el 30 de junio de 2022, y necesitamos información sobre los ingresos de sus padres. Su información no coincide con nuestros registros de préstamos basándonos en la información proporcionada en su solicitud. Determinamos que no tiene ningún préstamo federal que reúne los requisitos. Si no nos comunicamos con usted, ninguna otra acción es necesaria. 4. Le notificaremos una vez que se apruebe su solicitud. Una vez que confirmemos su derecho a participar, se lo notificaremos. Determinaremos cómo se aplica el alivio de la deuda a sus préstamos y le proporcionaremos esta información a las entidades administradoras de sus préstamos. 5. Las entidades administradoras de sus préstamos adjudicarán su alivio de deuda y le notificarán. Las entidades administradoras de sus préstamos adjudicarán el alivio directamente a su cuenta. Es posible que su cuenta tarde un tiempo en reflejar este cambio. Cada entidad administradora de préstamos que usted tenga le notificará por separado. Le informarán si sus préstamos están pagados en su totalidad o si tienen un saldo pendiente. Si tiene un saldo de préstamo pendiente, también le notificarán cuál será su nuevo pago mensual una vez que se reanuden los pagos después del 31 de diciembre de 2022. Si realizó pagos durante la pausa en los pagos (desde el 13 de marzo de 2020 hasta el 31 de diciembre de 2022) que redujeron su saldo por debajo del monto necesario para tener derecho a participar ($10,000 o $20,000) pero no pagó su préstamo en su totalidad, le reembolsaremos esos pagos automáticamente. Consulte Reembolsos por pagos anteriores. Inicie sesión en la cuenta de la entidad administradora de préstamos para asegurarse de que su administrador tenga su información de contacto más actualizada para que puedan comunicarse con usted. Preguntas frecuentes sobre los próximos pasos Si tengo varios préstamos, ¿cómo se adjudicará el alivio de la deuda a mis préstamos? ¿Qué sucede si también solicité la Condonación de Préstamos por Servicio Público (PSLF)? ¿Qué sucede si el saldo de mi préstamo es menor que el monto máximo de alivio de la deuda? Recibirá la cantidad de alivio equivalente al saldo total de su préstamo. Por ejemplo, si el saldo de su préstamo es de $7,000 y reúne los requisitos para un alivio de la deuda de $10,000, recibirá un alivio de $7,000. Sin embargo, si realizó pagos en los préstamos durante la pausa en los pagos (desde el 13 de marzo de 2020 hasta el 31 de diciembre de 2022) en estos mismos préstamos, recibirá automáticamente un reembolso por algunos de los pagos que realizó. Consulte Reembolsos de pagos anteriores. ¿Qué sucede si todavía tengo un saldo en el préstamo después de que se adjudique el alivio de la deuda? Obtener apoyo Tenga cuidado con las estafas Es posible que una empresa se ponga en contacto con usted diciéndole que le ayudará a conseguir la cancelación del préstamo, la condonación, la anulación o el alivio de la deuda a cambio de una cuota. Nunca es necesario que pague para recibir asesoramiento sobre su ayuda federal para estudiantes. Asegúrese de comunicarse solo con el ED y con nuestras entidades administradoras de préstamos, y nunca divulgue su información personal o la contraseña de su cuenta a nadie. Nuestros correos electrónicos a los prestatarios provienen de noreply@debtrelief.studentaid.gov, noreply@debtrelief.studentaid.gov o ed.gov@public.govdelivery.com. Puede denunciar intentos de estafa a la Comisión Federal de Comercio llamando al 1-877-382-4357 o visitando reportfraud.ftc.gov. Conozca cómo evitar estafas y qué puede hacer si un estafador se comunica con usted. Recibir ayuda StudentAid.gov tiene la información más reciente sobre el proceso de solicitud.

Of particular diplomatic interest in Wellington is sure to be the Biden-Harris plan's historic announcement that the United States intends to recognise the New Zealand dependencies of the Cook Islands and Niue as "sovereign" states. Massey University Centre for Defence and Security Studies senior lecturer Anna Powles spoke to Susie Ferguson.

Our final Best of Trending in Ed for the summer showcases a conversation with Dr. Leo Casey about his book, The Teacher Insurgency. Mike welcomes Dr. Leo Casey, the Executive Director of the Albert Shanker Institute who has written a book called The Teacher Insurgency: A Strategic and Organizing Perspective. They begin with Leo's upbringing by two New York City teachers, how he abandoned his dissertation to teach in Crown Heights, and how he began working with the union when his school shut down. Leo then began to head the Albert Shanker Institute, a strategic think tank within the American Federation of Teachers which examines labor history, especially for teachers. Leo explains the origins of the 2018 and 2019 teacher strikes: the Janus case, post-2008 austerity, deprofessionalization, and movements like the Women's March on Washington. Teacher's saw both their compensation as well as their position in the classroom undergoing rapid decline. The first teacher's strikes were held in West Virginia, which had a history labor movement--both within education and beyond. From here the strikes spread, and ultimately the movement was successful in protecting teachers during COVID-19 times (in this context, MIke briefly mentions Leo's article on Black Lives Matter and the NBA.)   Leo notes his concern about both the early retirement of teachers and the paucity in the pipeline for new teachers. Leo also expresses optimism for the Biden-Harris administration, notably President Biden's support of unions. Leo finishes up discussing the discourses around how teachers see themselves, and the need for true civics teaching.

Welcome to #Millennial, the home of pretend adulting and CORN talk! Corn kid is precious and must be protected at all costs. We're pleasantly surprised by how much the Biden-Harris student debt relief plan includes, and how many people are seeing significant or complete loan cancellation. Also, we have GREAT news about interest! Listeners sound off about what they'll be able to do when their student debt is canceled, and we celebrate the newly unveiled IDR plan effectively canceling interest. PSA: You'll still need to apply for the debt relief by 12/31. Don't worry, we'll issue lots of reminders! The White House Twitter account sees a sudden tone shift, endearing the account to tens of thousands of users. As midterms loom, so too does "Dark Brandon." What is Quiet Quitting? How do we establish a balance between work life and LIFE?

In the past, David was a male model/promoter for Urban Offering clothing and Pink Avenue Models. He also starred as an extra in the music video, “Desert Spring Rose: Film Noir Vignette”, directed by Scott Feigen. Besides his “day job” as a medical logistics specialist, David has volunteered in disaster relief efforts with Convoy of Hope, assisted in crisis intervention initiatives with National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the Pro-Privacy activist organization known as Restore the Fourth, an animals rights activist with Chicago Alliance for Animals to ban horse carriages and replace them with pedicabs.
