Homeless outreach worker makes positive change

    Sporting a scruffy white beard and salt-and-pepper wavy hair, Chris Dunn blends in well with those around a breakfast table at Timothy’s House of Hope, a meal site in Davenport for the hungry. I’ll keep you in my prayers, Dunn told a man, who asked not to be identified as he fought back tears over a plate of biscuits and gravy. He’s struggling through a divorce and living out of the back of his truck, which needs a new timing chain. I love you like a brother, Dunn added as he patted the man on the back. It’s obvious the 56-year-old Dunn, who’s rocking close-fitting jeans, a wool sweater and Under Armour shoes, isn’t there for the free spread; he’s there to listen. As a homeless outreach worker for the Center, he spends part of most days checking in on his “friends” at vari...

Europe’s leaders to force Britain into hard Brexit

    European leaders have come to a 27-nation consensus that a hard Brexit is likely to be the only way to see off future populist insurgencies, which could lead to the break-up of the European Union. The hardening line in EU capitals comes as Nigel Farage warns European leaders that Marine Le Pen, leader of the Front National, could deliver a political sensation bigger than Brexit and win France’s presidential election next spring – a result that would mean it was “game over” for 60 years of EU integration. National Front leader Marine Le Pen has made it clear she would like to take France out of the euro and the EU. According to senior officials at the highest levels of European governments, allowing Britain favourable terms of exit could represent an existential danger to t...

Get familiar with the term privatization

    Come Jan. 3, Congressional Republicans will be pushing two plans: House Speaker Paul Ryan will move to end Medicare as we know it and to privatize it by giving vouchers, forcing seniors on a fixed income to go shopping for affordable medical insurance. Speaking of privatization, Donald Trump's economic advisers have floated a plan to pay for his promised massive infrastructure bill. Their plan: Allow private investment firms to invest 20 percent of the cost and recoup their money through tolls on highways and bridges. Notice the pattern — privatize and turn over the profit to wealthy investors? Be very familiar with the term “privatization” because that is the plan. These two will be fast-tracked by Republicans and we need to be ready with a response. Do we want to have In...

Booze capital of England and Wales revealed with an off-licence for every 500 people

    The borough of Waltham Forest, which covers Walthamstow and surround areas, has an astonishing 543 off-licences covering a population of 271,170. That works our as one ‘offie’ for every 499 people - more than twice the national average of one per 1,044 people. The figures, from the Office for National Statistics, include those places which can only sell alcohol for consumption off-site. That means pubs and clubs are not counted. The second booziest place might come as something as a surprise - it is Fenland in Cambridgeshire. The leafy district - to the east of Peterborough - may not be a renowned party hot-spot but has a total of 169 off-licences, or one for every 587 people who live there. Third is Hackney, with one off-licence for every 650 people, while fourth is Wolve...
