George Portes Helps Disadvantaged Kids as a Longtime CASA Member and Volunteer

George Portes

George Portes

GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND, USA, July 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — George Portes is a highly-experienced Senior Event Manager with numerous awards and credentials for his dedicated work. In his spare time, Mr. Portes is a member and frequent volunteer of the CASA for Children organization, which makes a lasting positive impact on kids who have experienced abuse or neglect.

Beyond receiving awards such as the Best Easter Region Event Management of
the Year, George Portes is admired for his volunteer work with organizations like Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA).

“I am a CASA member, and I’ve worked as a regular volunteer with the organization for the last 8 years,” says George Portes. “I work on special cases to assist disadvantaged kids in my county, helping them grow and receive the support they need.”

Volunteering is a major focus for George Portes as he believes it not only strengthens society and his local community but also humbles and encourages him to be more positive in his day-to-day life. Working with CASA, he can give children who have experienced abuse or neglect a hope for a brighter future.

CASA volunteers like George Portes are appointed by a judge in their county to serve as an advocate for a child’s best interest in court. Through observation, suggestion, and genuine care, they help judges develop a clearer picture of each child’s life. In this way, they help ensure that judges end up making a well-informed decision for every child’s case that is best suited to their individual needs.

“The kids that CASA volunteers are paired up with have undergone significant trauma which is being resolved in court,” says George Portes. “Often, this means their removal from parental custody and placement in alternative care. Volunteers with CASA advocate for the best outcome in court depending on each child’s specific needs.”

After being appointed by a judge to a case, volunteers remain involved until it is resolved and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. Volunteers work with kids of all ages, from toddlers and newborns to teenagers. George Portes and others like him partner with legal and child welfare professionals, service providers, and educators to create a solid understanding of each child’s standpoint. From there, they provide judges with the information required to make well-informed decisions about their future.

Through CASA, volunteers help secure the best interest of each child by sticking to a guiding principle which states that children grow and develop best with their family of origin if it can be safely achieved. Many of the kids they encounter are in foster care, and most who leave foster care do so to return to their original families.

“As volunteers to CASA, we make a tremendous difference in the lives of disadvantaged kids whether they immediately understand it or not,” says George Portes. “Our work ensures that each of these neglected or abused children have just as much a chance of success and happiness as anyone.”

John Hajjar Represents AMCD at First Conference on National Conservatism

John Hajjar at the Conference on National Conservatism

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, July 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — John Hajjar represented the America Mideast Coalition for Democracy at the inaugural conference of ‘National Conservatism' along with other pro-freedom Middle East American activists at the Ritz Carlton in Washington DC on July 15, 2019.

Mr. Hajjar articulated AMCD’s strong support for the Trump Administration’s policy in the Middle East. He voiced unequivocal support the US withdrawal from the flawed Iran deal and support for the administration in siding with moderate Muslim leaders against the radical Ikhwan.

During the conference, Mr. Hajjar also met with the French delegation and spoke at length about the situation in Lebanon.

Mr. Hajjar also expressed support for President Trump’s prioritizing of American citizens over non-citizens as the proper role for American leadership. Most Middle Eastern Americans are legal immigrants or are descended from legal immigrants and they resent illegal immigrants swamping the asylum process. There are numerous persecuted minorities in Middle East who are truly deserving of asylum status, but America’s asylum system is being overwhelmed by hundreds of thousands of economic migrants who are gaming the system by filing false claims at the border.

Mr. Hajjar also encouraged Mideast Americans to support the Trump Administration by running for public office. Moderate voices supportive of sound public policies must be lifted up so they are not drowned out by the one or two radicals who gain notoriety by saying outrageous things.

Said Mr Hajjar: “Most Middle Eastern Americans are solid, sensible people who love our country. As election year 2020 approaches, we need to demonstrate that fact to our fellow Americans and vote the radicals out.” He added that “Americans of Middle Eastern descent are proud and nationalistic Americans who have made solid contributions to their country and fully appreciate the fact that the gains and accomplishments they have made in America could happen nowhere else.”

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), explained by North Carolina attorney Janet P. Reed in a new article

Alternative dispute resolution refers to dispute settlement outside of court. In a new article, Janet Reed, Esq. explains some of the issues in layman’s terms.

ADR processes are a compelling alternative to court trials. They not only allow for quick settlement of disputes and are less costly, but also increase the chances of finding a solution…”

— Janet Pittman Reed, lawyer in North Carolina

JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, July 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Are you stuck in a dispute, but do not want to get into the hassle of a court case? You should go for an alternative dispute resolution! Alternative dispute resolution, or ADR, is an umbrella term used for methods of dispute settlement outside of the courtroom, with the help of a neutral third party.

Since ADR programs are more expeditious and less costly than court cases, they present viable alternative solutions for dispute settlement. Attorney Janet Reed, based in North Carolina, has published a comment that reviews related issues. The complete article will be published on her Blog at https://janetreedesq.blogspot.com/

In view of the increasing costs of lawsuits and the time it takes to settle a dispute through litigation, ADR programs present viable alternative solutions. They are not only more expeditious and less costly, but also allow for more creative solutions that may be outside the court’s jurisdiction.

Unlike court cases, which are generally adversarial, ADR programs allow the disputing parties to better understand each other’s position. As a result, they are more likely to collaborate and reach a mutually acceptable solution.

Alternative Dispute Resolution Methods

While there are many ways to settle disputes outside of the court, mediation and arbitration are the most commonly used methods.

What is Mediation?

Performed by a neutral third-party – a trained individual – mediation is an informal process to facilitate negotiations between the disputing parties and help them reach a consensus. The role of the mediator is to help both the parties break the deadlock, explore their options and find a mutually agreeable solution. For this, the mediator may talk to the involved parties together or separately.

While mediators can facilitate the process by providing options for possible solutions or by guiding the disputants, they cannot enforce anything. Also, they have to stay impartial throughout the process. Although the ADR method can be used for all non-criminal cases, it is generally preferred when the disputing parties have some kind of a relationship between them and they do not want to ruin it. Since a mediator can help the parties communicate without getting emotions involved, they are highly likely to reach consensus in nondestructive manners.

Mediation can be a better choice than litigation in case of a dispute between business partners, family members, neighbors, landlords and tenants, and labor issues with the management. It has also been increasingly used for divorce cases and to settle issues related to child custody.

Since mediation is generally voluntary (it is mandatory in some jurisdictions) and non-binding, both the disputing parties should be willing to negotiate, cooperate, and/or compromise. Mediation will not be effective otherwise.

What is Arbitration?

Arbitration is a simplified version of a court trial. Headed by a neutral individual or a panel, the process of arbitration involves hearing the claims of both sides, reviewing evidence, and then issuing a decision. Unlike mediation, the verdict issued by the arbitrator, called arbitral award, can be binding or non-binding.

In case of binding arbitration, the disputants lose their right to a court trial and have to accept the decision of the arbitrator. In non-binding arbitration, the disputing parties can go for court trial if the arbitrator’s decision is unacceptable for them.

While the process sounds like similar to court proceedings, arbitration gives more power to the disputants. In arbitration, the disputing parties mutually decide the guidelines of the process as well as choose the arbitrator. In cases where both the sides do not agree on one arbitrator, each party selects one person. The two arbitrators will then elect another individual. This is done to ensure neutrality of the decision maker. The disputants also have the choice to either hire lawyers to speak for them or they can choose to present their cases themselves. Arbitration hearings generally last for a few days to maximum a week.

Final Word

ADR processes are a compelling alternative to court trials. They not only allow for quick settlement of disputes and are less costly, but also increase the chances of finding a solution that is acceptable to both the disputing parties. While there are many different methods of alternative dispute resolution, such as case conferencing, neutral evaluation, parenting coordination, and conciliation, mediation and arbitration are most commonly used.

Oasis Focus Inc. a Nonprofit Organization Releases an Empowerment Tool for U.S. Public School Teachers.

The Educator’s Compass

KELLER, TEXAS, U.S.A, July 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Oasis Focus Inc. Releases an Empowerment Tool for U.S. Public School Teachers.
KELLER, TX, USA, July 16, 2019

Oasis Focus Inc. is a non-profit organization that provides an oasis of hope in the marketplace, to families and public schools. Founded in 2009 by Drs. Johnson & Feyi Obamehinti, the organization is supported by a dedicated board and advisory members who contribute their expertise to the mission of the organization.

On Friday, July 2019, Oasis Focus Inc. released its first publication in the form of a weekly Bible Study just for educators. Written by seven authors, mostly educators themselves, the Educator’s Compass is designed for lunch time when teachers can use their time any way they so choose. As educators, the authors were able to write from their own experiences and how their faith has been the driving force of their sustenance in public school.

In an April 2019 article published by the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank created in 1986, the current crisis within the teaching profession was profiled in a report. The report was titled: ‘U.S. schools struggle to hire and retain teachers.’ It was a second in a series report examining the magnitude of teacher shortage and the working conditions and other factors that contribute to the shortage. The report described the challenges schools face in staffing themselves, both as a consequence of the teacher shortage and further contributing to it. Furthermore, the report indicated that a high share of public school teachers are leaving their posts: 13.8 percent are either leaving their school or leaving teaching altogether. EPI report also states that schools are having a harder time filling the vacancies. A shortage of teachers is detrimental to students, teachers’ and the public education system.

Oasis Focus Inc. recognizes how vital these challenges are to the overall purpose of a quality education that every student needs to fulfill their purposes as contributing members of our society. Many of its current board and advisory members are educators who know firsthand the challenges teachers face in the professions. Since Oasis Focus Inc. believes that teachers are our public schools’ greatest assets, the board designed the Educator’s Compass to build community during lunch time. The Educator’s Compass is a weekly Bible Study curriculum intended to provide weekly spiritual navigation and orientation for public school educators; in other for them to receive encouragement and community with each other through the Bible. The goal of the Educator’s Compass is to equip and empower educators. Oasis Focus Inc. wants to help maintain our greatest assets: teachers for the long haul. Through the weekly lunch time Bible Study, teachers will be able to nurture their spirits and souls. Invariably, students will be the
beneficiaries of well nurtured educators.

The Educator’s Compass is authored by Dr. Johnson Obamehinti, Dr. Feyi Obamehinti, Linda Reese, M.Ed., Joyce Spears, M.Ed., Tammy Wright, M.S., Vicki Vaughn, M.Ed. and Camille Cueto, B.S. There is a section in the back of the book, titled: ‘Meet Our Authors’ where you can learn more about each contributing author.

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, July 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS

Opening Night film, "Ali’s Comeback: The Untold Story" by Art Jones, is a fascinating documentary that recounts the unsung saga that broke the boxing’s blacklist status of Muhammad Ali, the champion who said “no” to war and racism. The year is 1970. It has been three and a half years since Muhammad Ali was stripped of his title. Convicted of draft evasion. Threatened with imprisonment. Banned in all 50 states, he is unable to work in the field for which he had no equal. The wide door on his illustrious career seems to be closing. But in Atlanta, Georgia, an astute white businessman, a visionary black senator, and a progressive Jewish mayor came together to make it possible for Ali to resume his amazing boxing career.

In Closing Night film, "The Robeson Effect" by Juney Smith, actors Danny Glover and Ben Guillory share with the audience the extraordinary story of their 50-year friendship, some of their life’s journey, their artistic journey and their shared admiration of Paul Robeson, which led them to the creation of the Robey Theatre Company in Los Angeles, California.

HISTORICAL DOCUMENTARIES

ADIFF DC 2019 presents a rich selection of historical documentaries that highlight the contribution of international leaders who have affected significant societal change in their country and beyond.

Who was Frantz Fanon and what is his legacy today? "Fanon yesterday and today" by Hassane Mezine traces the life of this incredible leader and gives voice to men and women inspired by Frantz Fanon to fight for social justice today. "Oliver Tambo: Have You Heard From Johannesburg" by Connie Field tells the untold story of Oliver Tambo—who lived a life on the principles of ethics, compassion, inclusion, social justice and equality – the man behind the release of Nelson Mandela and the end of Apartheid in South Africa. Mika Kaurismaki’s documentary "Mama Africa: Miriam Makeba" traces fifty years of her music and Miriam Makeba's performing life. "The Black Mozart in Cuba" by Steve and Stephanie James is the latest act in the rehabilitation of the memory of musician extraordinaire Joseph Boulogne, Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges (1745-1799).

REVIVALS

Two films will have revival screenings in ADIFF DC 2019: Classic Brazilian epic drama "Quilombo" (1984) by Carlos Diegues is about Quilombo dos Palmares, one of the most important communities of free African people in the New World. Directed by remarkable Egyptian filmmaker Osama Fawzi – who passed away on January 8, 2019 – "Fallen Angels’ Paradise" (1999) is one of the most original and audacious Egyptian productions of the 1990s. “Intriguingly modern in look and idiom, "Fallen Angels' Paradise" convincingly depicts Cairo's upper and lower depths in the surrealistic story of a man who refuses to die.” ~ LA Times
