FUENGIROLA, MáLAGA, ESPAñA, October 17, 2021 / — Morocco’s provocative litany of hostilities towards Algeria has led, on the 24 august of this year, to the breaking off of International relations by Algeria. Is this the prelude to an “Intense violent military campaign, a Blitzkrieg” to steal Algeria’s resources, the world’s 11th oil and gas producing country?
Ever since 1953 when a declining British Empire and the US danced a struggle of sorts for control of the oil-rich Middle East, the USA has always maintained a surreptitious open eye on Western or Spanish Sahara. More recently the “Trump” sponsored recognition of Israel by a hitherto antagonistic Morocco, and subsequent fostering of relations between the two states, has set analysts wondering what surprises the future may have in store for the region.
The book, “Malak desert child.” is a stunning evocation of North Africa and its encounter with Western civilisation seen through the relationship between Pete, fleeing to Morocco to escape his mental demons by seeking solace in a pre-modern world, and a family who in escaping from their violent, drunken father to the Algerian Sahara, experience other problems and persecution. The rich valleys and deserts of Morocco and Algeria, are given depth by insight into the immediate history of the area and two upheavals, a rebellion and a revolution. OGarra brings an unusual sympathy and insight into this largely unknown world, the southern 'Other' of Western civilisation, and through his familiarity and insight probes and brings out our common humanity in this tale of struggle and adventure. Albeit in the company of a courageous girl-child, her family and her newly acquired band of personages who seek only to save her from her own valour which finds her time and again plunging headfirst into the abyss.
Malak desert child is the second book in the continuing story of Masuhun (Moon) and his friends, and deals with how they tried to help Malak, a pupil at the local school, and her family, and finished up being pursued by desert armies in the Sahara desert…………………………. Malak is a beautiful five-year-old girl child. She lives in a cave in dire poverty with her drunkard father and her Saharoui mother and sister. Her enemies are all the towns children who victimize her and her sister because of their race and condition. Her only friend is a single mother named Latifa, and Malak´s grandmother Jeeda Hazzah who dies of cancer. But Malak is the champion of her family against a violent father and the children of the Zoco who she fights singlehandedly. This is a magical and often mystical story of a young girl and the people she stumbles upon, as she is rushed away by her uncertain destiny, to the land in which her mother was born, the Sahara Desert. The unravelling of Malak's story is also the unsnarling of the web of intrigue surrounding the North of Africa, and it´s peoples and history, and the reasons for many current dilemmas in this land of witchcraft and mystery. The tale begins in earnest when a wandering ex-warrior happens on the child and is struck by her magnificent courage and beauty. After a significant episode with her drunken father and his cronies, having interceded on the family´s behalf, he flees with them on a stolen high-speed cruiser heading for Western Sahara and freedom.In the course of their errant journey, they are taken into threatening custody by the Algerian police. The day is saved by the intervention of an old friend of the warrior´s. The friend, a powerful Algerian Warlord, falls under the spell of the feisty child and seems to want to help them although Malak and her mother see in him a very enigmatic and untrustworthy character. Malak´s personality and mystic nature make of her the flux in an adventure which begins as a race to return her to her maternal grandfather´s family. Things start to escalate as her father reports the family as kidnapped and his country uses it as an excuse to intervene militarily.What begins as a flight of mercy will become a race against time as Malak and her friends take on the impossible to try and avoid a military invasion of the whole region by the allied forces of half of the civilised world. In this, they enlist the help of hundreds of thousands of tribespeople. Some tribes known to all and others lost in the wastes of the mysterious desert.

OGarra's first book of short stories, "Mano Po," Is now also available for purchase.

Nobel Prize Nominated COVID-19 Protection Chosen By PVH Corporation To Protect Facilities And Employees

Globally Recognized Nobel Prize Nominee teams up with Fortune 500 Company To Protect Employees and Visitors From COVID-19

The Future of Building Protection

The M3 System Delivery Module

The Future Of Building Protection

PVH Distribution Center Environmental Control Unit

Nobel Prize Nominated Technology Chosen To Protect Occupants Against COVID-19

750,000 Sq. Ft. PVH Corporation Distribution Facility In USA

PVH Corporation, formerly known as Phillips-Van Heusen, has chosen The M3 System developed by Global Infection Control Consultants LLC for Pandemic Protection.

A Globally established Fortune 500 Company has chosen Nobel Prize Nominated technology developed by a long time consultant as primary COVID-19 protection for its distribution and retail centers.”

— Arthur V. Martin Ph.D. President

NORTH MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, October 17, 2021 / — PVH Corporation, formerly known as Phillips-Van Heusen has worked with its long-term consultant, Global Infection Control Consultants LLC, to deploy GICC LLC’s Nobel Prize Nominated technology to protect employees in the distribution facilities as well as 500+ retail outlets in the USA and overseas.
GICC LLC developed an organic based, chemical, drug and alcohol-free solution that was successfully tested against COVID-19 as well as numerous other pathogens and tested for efficacy in a USA CDC Approved laboratory. The product has been manually applied in applications around the world for over 15 years. Several years ago, Dr. Arthur V. Martin and Kevin M. Martin began conceptualizing, engineering and producing what is known as The M3 System® for automatic, calculated product infusion in buildings to provide 24/7/365 protection.
The system works on what is known as The Brownian Theory of Motion. The Brownian Theory describes how particles such as pathogenic fungi, bacteria, yeasts and viruses move randomly about in the air we breathe. By developing a methodology to infuse billions of individual pathogen-killing molecules into the air which also move randomly they come in contact with pathogens and kill them.
The efficacy of the ground breaking technology far exceeds results produced by current technologies such as HEPA filters, UV (Ultraviolet Light) and Bipolar Ionization. PVH has been using our technology in more than 500 retail outlets in the USA and overseas to protect employees and visitors since 2012.
“Having designed and built Clean Rooms, Hospital Operating Suites and Bio-Safety Laboratories around the world for nearly 40 years my approach was to be able to control and or eliminate pathogens but do it more efficiently and more effectively than any current technology utilizing organic materials and methods” said Dr. Martin. “Lou Schwartz who has been the PVH Quality Control Specialist and I have worked together since 2012 when we traveled together to Hong Kong, Mainland China and Bangladesh solving critical pathogen contamination problems affecting productivity, contract worker health and profits. This cooperative effort by both our companies is intended to protect PVH employees and facilities and show the world that innovative, successfully employed technology is now available for everyone. PVH has been using our product technology in more than 500 retail outlets in the USA and overseas to protect employees and visitors.”
The technology is applicable to many venues. Schools can reduce absenteeism and kids can learn and thrive in a safe environment. Office buildings can reduce absenteeism related to respiratory issues which will increase productivity and reduce insurance costs by reducing medical visits. Religious facilities can welcome worshipers back and provide a safe indoor environment for them. Restaurants and retail facilities can provide healthy indoor conditions for patrons. Fear of litigation is reduced.
One of the most highly critical locations for this ground breaking technology is the medical environment. Secondary, nosocomial infections, in hospitals has been a serious problem from years. In May of 2021 the CDC finally recognized that the main problem with the spread of COVID-19 was not doorknobs and elevator buttons. It was, is and will continue to be the air we breathe. The average adult breathes as much as 25,000 liters of air/day and everything in it.
The M3 System® technology takes direct aim at this problem and the results are proven.
Total identified pathogen count as a variety of ten, reduced to 5 in just 30 hours with the remaining five at 12% quantification of the original count.
Total pathogen air content in 650,000 Sq. Ft. facility reduced by 90% before all units became operational.
Total number of commercial building occupants in a Florida installation testing positive after extended contact with outside infected people……..Zero.
PVH Corporation with $7.1 billion in global revenue, more than 33,000 employees and a global presence in 40+ countries continues to embrace innovative, ground braking technologies for their own staff and employees but with an eye on sustainability and environmental awareness.

Changing current failed wild horse advocacy policy and resulting management to enable a genuinely sustainable solution requires courage and intellectual honesty

PZP Is 'Genetic Poison', and shooting PZP projectiles into free-roaming American wild horses is 'harassment' and a violation of the federal Act that protects wild horses.”

— William E. Simpson II – Naturalist

YREKA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 17, 2021 / — The first and arguably most important step in solving any problem, even one as complex as the issues around the sustainable conservation of free-roaming American wild horses, is to:

1. Recognize there is a problem; and,
2. Identify and define the problem… at its root.

This is much harder to accomplish than it sounds. That’s because of the extensive white-noise that is primarily made-up from misinformation that largely fills the bandwidth of most interested wild horse stakeholders and informs the opinions of many others, including people who have ‘good intentions’.

Importantly, ‘good intentions’ can kill when they are combined with flawed applications of science. One example of this would be the improper application of cardio pulmonary resuscitation (‘CPR’) on a patient. Even with the ‘best intentions’ by a good Samaritan, the improper application of CPR will reduce the odds of survival of the patient.

The Problem:

Wild horses in America are not being managed in harmony with natural evolutionary processes. All wildlife management must be conducted in concert with natural processes.

Wild horses are desperate for a genuine solution from the pressures placed on public land grazing uses by consumerism, which land-use pressures are only going to grow.

The current ignorant yet trendy paradigm of trying to replace natural evolutionary processes that maintain wild horse (wildlife) populations in equilibrium with artificial man-made processes, as so-called ‘population management’, does not yield a sustainable natural population of genetically vibrant wild horses over the long-haul.


PZP Is 'Genetic Poison' when used on free-roaming wild horses (wildlife).

Today, there are too many non-profit activist organizations whose ignorance of natural evolutionary sciences is harming the long-term odds for a sustainable natural population of wild horses in America. These non-profits are harming the long-term genetic vigor of wild horses via their support, promotion and or uses of porcine zona pellucida (‘PZP’) and GonaCon on wild horses.


The ‘Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act’ (Public Law 92-195; the ‘Act’), was enacted by Congress in 1971 and signed by then President Richard Nixon to provide for the necessary management, protection and control of wild horses and burros on public lands by the Bureau of Land Management (‘BLM’) and the U.S. Forest Service (‘USFS’).

Currently, the BLM and USFS are ‘managing’ wild horses and burros in areas defined under the Act as Herd Management Areas (‘HMAs’), which today, 50-years after the Act was passed, are grazing areas where wild horses are now commingled with livestock.

Most HMAs (not all) have been made largely devoid of apex predators over the past 300-years of livestock management on these public lands. The practice of eliminating apex predators is deemed necessary by the livestock industry in order to meet the market demands (price and quantity) of consumers for livestock-based products.

Consumerism (people) drives the markets for livestock products, not the other way around.

The BLM and the USFS are caught in the politics related to the lobbying crossfire of both wild horse advocates, who want less cattle on public lands, and livestock grazers, who based-on meeting cost-effective market demands, argue they need more public lands grazing.

Currently, the makeshift solution to this difficult market-driven dilemma is being addressed with aggressive round-ups of wild horses to create more livestock grazing, combined with the uses of the chemicals PZP and GonaCon as supposed ‘contraception’ to stop wild horse population growth, which in light of the best science is a highly flawed management tactic and contrary to maintaining vibrantly sustainable wild horse genetics and populations.

The BLM and wild horse non-profit organizations and activists who are engaged in the selective breeding of native species American wild horses using PZP are meddling with natural processes that are critical for the long-term survival of American wild horses.

When a human decides which animals get to breed and/or which do not, that is by definition ‘selective breeding’. And that is contrary to the intent of the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act (WFRHBA).

Pursuing wild horses with high-powered firearms and shooting them with projectiles filled with PZP is ‘harassment’ of wild horses and is arguably a violation of the intent and codification of the Act established by Congress to protect wild horses and burros.

Selective breeding of native wild horses by humans disintermediates the evolutionary process of ‘Natural Selection’ by the co-evolved predators of wild horses, which is critical to the continued survival and genetic vigor of wild horses.


‘Natural Selection’ is an essential evolutionary process in any co-evolved predator-prey relationship. This is why it is flawed management to maintain wild horse populations that are commingled with livestock populations in Herd Areas that have been made devoid of apex predators. This is great for livestock production, but terrible for wild horses, which require and depend upon their co-evolved predators for their genetic vigor and population equilibrium within any ecosystem.

Regardless of ‘good intentions’ by some wild horse non-profit organizations and activists, doing the wrong things for wild horses is harmful and inexcusable.

Excuses that posit the use of chemical contraception (PZP and GonaCon) on native species American wild horses as the best solution for overpopulation are examples of a poor understanding of evolutionary science. And this ignorance is driving the irreversible damage that is being done to the remaining populations of American wild horses.

It’s important to note and understand that the demands for more intensive uses of public lands is certain due to growing consumerism in America and beyond. And with these increasing demands, wild horses will come under even greater management pressures, unless a better solution becomes the main event in all discussions.

The Root of the Problem

Keeping American wild horses commingled with livestock in herd areas where apex predators have been depleted is perpetrating an ecologic injustice upon native species American wild horses, and perpetuates an illogical range-war.

In the light of natural evolutionary processes that provide equilibrium among animal populations, current management tactics are obtuse as are the many very costly workarounds, such as the failed attempts to address the fallout (overpopulation) from a lack of natural wild horse predators, using expensive roundups and contraception.

A Modern Science-Based Final Solution:

In a nutshell: relocating wild horses from areas of contention as intact family bands, as well as re-wilding wild horses from expensive off-range holding areas and into the remote wilderness, beyond conflict with livestock enterprises is the essence of the Plan.

America has more than 110-million acres of remote wilderness areas in the western states. Much of this wilderness is manifestly unfit for any livestock production due to difficult mountainous terrain, which adversely affects livestock management logistical costs, combined with the presence of robust populations of apex predators.

These economic challenges significantly increase costs of livestock production, thereby increasing the cost of goods sold (COGS) to a point where the end products are not competitively priced. Therefore, along with other laws, economics rules-out any potential livestock grazing in such wilderness areas.

These same remote wilderness areas are nevertheless blessed with abundant water and forage, yet are suffering from almost annual catastrophic wildfire due to the depleted populations of large-bodied native herbivores (deer and elk) that had previously inhabited those landscapes. In the not-too-distant past, these same wilderness areas had proper population densities of deer, elk and wild horses, which through their grazing, maintained ground fuels (grass and brush) to nominal levels year-round, keeping wildfires in the realm of normal wildfire (less fuel means less heat).

There have been serious declines in deer and elk populations in some western states (like, California, Oregon, Washington, etc.). And over the past decades, that has resulted in millions of tons of prodigious annually occurring ground fuels (grass and brush), which is now left un-grazed in these very remote wilderness areas. These ground fuels are then subjected to a warming climate, rendering these fuels viable for wildfire sooner in the season, and remaining as dry tinder longer.

Wildfire Fuels Reduction Using Wild Horses (‘Wild Horse Fire Brigade’)

Cattle and sheep have complex stomachs which digest virtually all the plant and grass seeds they consume, making them unable to germinate.
Wild horses, on the other hand, pass virtually all the seeds they consume intact out onto the ground in their droppings and able to germinate, providing a critically important reseeding function for native plants.

This evolved symbiosis between wild horses and the flora of the North American continent required millions of years of co-evolution, and is especially beneficial for wilderness lands that have been devastated by catastrophically hot wildfire.

The droppings of wild horses contain microorganisms (aka: microbiome) that help fire-damaged landscapes with pasteurized soils to recover via reestablishing the microbiome along with humus and the seeds of native flora .

Each wild horse deployed into these selected wilderness areas will symbiotically consume about 5.5 tons of grass and brush annually as the concurrently reseed the landscape, keeping a delicate ecological balance in place. The resulting wildfire fuels reduction via wild horses is virtually cost-free for taxpayers, and simultaneously solves the livestock-wild horse conflict on lands (HMAs) where livestock production is virtually a permanent enterprise.

An added benefit is taxpayers no longer have to foot the bill for the $100-million+ in annual costs that the BLM spends on rounding-up and warehousing wild horses off-range, nor the expensive taxpayer costs related to flawed contraception concepts that some people are motivated to support.

Two Potential Options Available To Allow Rewilding as well as Relocating Wild Horses:

1. Amending Section 1339 of the ‘Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act’ (Public Law 92-195) to allow the BLM and USFS to relocate and rewild wild horses into wilderness areas that are economically and ecologically appropriate.

Here is the current language that must be addressed: § 1339. Limitation of Authority:

“Nothing in this Act shall be construed to authorize the Secretary to relocate wild free-roaming horses or burros to areas of the public lands where they do not presently exist.”

Proposed amended language (by William E. Simpson II), for § 1339. Limitation of Authority:

“Nothing in this Act shall be construed to authorize the Secretary to relocate wild free-roaming horses or burros to areas of the public lands where they do not presently exist, with the exception that; in Wilderness Areas managed by the United States Forest Service (USFS) and/or the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) containing forests and/or other natural resources at risk of catastrophic wildfire; the BLM and the USFS shall under this Act have authority to re-wild American wild horses and burros from off-range holding facilities and/or relocate wild horses and burros from existing Herd Management Areas into such Wilderness Areas where it is ecologically and economically appropriate.”

2. Using existing law: Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (HUMANE TRANSFER OF EXCESS ANIMALS SEC. 116) to transfer excess wild horses and burros currently in holding to other federal, state, and local government agencies for use as work animals.

H. R. 133—Page 358-359

SEC. 419.

(a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Secretary of the Interior, with respect to land administered by the Bureau of Land Management, or the Secretary of Agriculture, with respect to land administered by the Forest Service (referred to in this section as the ‘‘Secretary concerned’’), may transfer excess wild horses and burros that have been removed from land administered by the Secretary concerned to other Federal, State, and local government agencies for use as work animals. (b) The Secretary concerned may make a transfer under sub-section (a) immediately on the request of a Federal, State, or local government agency. (c) An excess wild horse or burro transferred under subsection (a) shall lose status as a wild free-roaming horse or burro (as defined in section 2 of Public Law 92–195 (commonly known as the ‘‘Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act’’) (16 U.S.C. 1332)). (d) A Federal, State, or local government agency receiving an excess wild horse or burro pursuant to subsection (a) shall not— (1) destroy the horse or burro in a manner that results in the destruction of the horse or burro into a commercial product; (2) sell or otherwise transfer the horse or burro in a manner that results in the destruction of the horse or burro for processing into a commercial product; or (3) euthanize the horse or burro, except on the recommendation of a licensed veterinarian in a case of severe injury, illness, or advanced age. (e) Amounts appropriated by this Act shall not be available for— (1) the destruction of any healthy, unadopted, and wild horse or burro under the jurisdiction of the Secretary concerned (including a contractor); or (2) the sale of a wild horse or burro that results in the destruction of the wild horse or burro for processing into a commercial product.

Summit School at Nyack Welcomes Dr. Veronica Fellman, Child, Adolescent & Adult Psychiatrist

Dr. Veronica Fellman, Child, Adolescent & Adult Psychiatrist

Dr. Fellman discusses what led her to Summit School, working with children in their natural habitat, where she can really observe and assess their functioning.

It is humbling and inspiring to stand with children as they learn how to navigate the challenges of life.”

— Dr. Veronica Fellman

NYACK, NY, US, October 16, 2021 / — The Summit community is delighted to welcome Dr. Veronica Fellman, Child, Adolescent & Adult Psychiatrist. Dr. Fellman joins our team of dedicated professionals in service of the children in our care. “This work is truly my calling,” says Dr. Fellman. “It is humbling and inspiring to stand with children as they learn how to navigate the challenges of life,” she explains during her September interview at Summit School at Nyack. See Dr. Fellman’s full interview here.

Q: Can you share a little bit of your background and what led you to become a Child, Adolescent & Adult Psychiatrist?
A: I applied to medical school specifically to become a psychiatrist, but always assumed I would work with adults. During my general psychiatry residency at NYU Langone, I completed a rotation on a child psychiatry inpatient unit at Bellevue and fell in love with the field. My husband saw me come home everyday excited and happy, and wisely told me to continue “doing whatever I was doing“ because I so clearly loved it. I stayed at NYU to complete my child and adolescent fellowship. After graduation, I worked in the Bellevue CCPEP (the only dedicated child psychiatric emergency room) for eight years and taught medical students and residents. I have also provided consultations for the ACS Children’s Center (where children are brought immediately after removal from home). Most recently I worked at The League School, a day treatment program in Brooklyn for children’s ages 5-21.

Q: What would make your work at Summit School at Nyack successful?
A: I hope to earn the trust and respect of my patients and their families. My goal is always to relieve suffering and make children’s lives happier, healthier and more aligned with their goals.

Q: What are some of the challenges you expect to overcome at Summit?
A: I am excited for the challenge of integrating into a team in a new community. I expect the typical learning curve, as I navigate Summit protocols and traditions. But I enjoy meeting people and challenging myself to adapt and learn.

Q: How would you describe your approach to working with children vs. adults?
A: Being genuine and transparent is paramount to working with children, who seem to quickly identify any false fronts and disdain them! It is a pleasure to follow a child’s lead and try to meet them where they are: whether by being playful or using a more gentle approach. Regardless, my general rule is to respect the experience of the child; whether I agree or disagree with a particular behavior or interpretation, I try to understand the child’s perspective.

Q: If you were speaking to a student about what they can expect from the work you will do with them, what would you tell them?
A: I want my students to know that I will work hard to help them achieve their goals and to be happy and healthy. I don’t ever expect their trust, I expect to earn it.

Q: What might you tell a parent about what to expect?
A: As a parent, there is nothing more important to me than the health and happiness of my family. And I always keep this in mind as I treat my patients and their families.

Q: Can you speak to how your work with the students is integrated in a different way than someone meeting with a private doctor. Because you have access to the staff that work with these students in all of the different aspects of the program (school, residence, clinical, recreation & family), I’d like to better understand how that helps create a more complete picture than most doctors.
A: I’ve said to many colleagues – there are so many advantages to seeing children in their school. I think of it as children's “natural habitat,” where I can really observe and assess their functioning. In a private office I get to see a small slice of a child’s world- how they act in a doctor’s office for 45 minutes. Here I can see them socializing with friends, interacting with teachers in class, even relaxing while taking the dogs for a walk. There is no question that seeing this larger, more holistic picture of a child is a huge advantage in formulating a comprehensive approach to treatment. It is also a true pleasure. The other advantage of being at school is that I can see kids as often and for as long as it is helpful.

Q: Was there anything in particular that stood out to you when deciding on moving forward in your career at Summit School?
A: I was offered positions at other schools and treatment programs but after meeting with Barbara Baker and Brant Goldsmith, my decision was made. Their approach to guiding treatment is very much aligned with my own belief that treatment must be child-centered. Any institution can only be as strong as its personnel, starting with leadership, and already I have felt the enormous strength that drives this team, from nursing and therapists to teachers and support staff. My decision was all about the people here.

Peralta Community College Board takes action to continue positive momentum and direction created by Chancellor Jannett Jackson's leadership

Chancellor Jackson has demonstrated a fervent commitment to students, staff, and faculty. The Board values how critical leadership stability is in remaining steadfast on our course of action”

— Dr. Cynthia Napoli-Abella Reiss, Board President

OAKLAND, CA, UNITED STATES, October 15, 2021 / — The Board of Trustees of the Peralta Community College District (PCCD) today voted unanimously in special session to extend the contract of Dr. Jannett Jackson as Interim Chancellor of the District for two years.

“The Board took this action to continue the positive momentum and direction enabled by Chancellor Jackson's leadership,” said Dr. Cynthia Napoli-Abella Reiss, President of the Board of Trustees of Peralta Community College District. “Chancellor Jackson has demonstrated a fervent commitment to students, staff, and faculty; and the Board understands and values how critical leadership stability is in remaining steadfast on our course of action.”

The Board renewed Interim Chancellor Dr. Jannett Jackson’s contract until December 2023.

“Chancellor Jackson is the right person at the right time for this job. She brings decades of administrative experience to Peralta and has demonstrated a lifelong commitment to the well-being of students, staff, and faculty- and really our entire community,” added Dr. Nicky Gonzalez Yuen, Vice President of the Board. “She has worked to build a culture of inclusion, respect and accountability across the District.”

“I’m excited about the opportunity to continue to lead this district,” said Chancellor Dr. Jannett Jackson. “I am humbled that the Board of Trustees has demonstrated their trust and support of my actions as the senior leader, and I look forward to continuing to work with some amazing colleagues. Peralta and its colleges have great promise and potential to make an even greater positive impact on the lives of our students and our community.”

Chancellor Jackson is an experienced CEO having served as the esteemed Chancellor of the Chabot-Los Positas Community College District from 2013 to 2018 when she retired, and previously served as Interim President of Skyline Community College in San Bruno in 2019-2020 prior to her appointment as PCCD Interim Chancellor in April of 2021.

Chancellor Jackson first joined the PCCD District via College of Alameda in 2004 serving as Vice President of Instruction. In 2010 she was promoted to President of the College and she served as President with distinction through 2013, when she left to become Chancellor at the neighboring Chabot-Los Positas Community College District.

Chancellor Jackson was hired by PCCD in April because she knows the community so well and has proven experience as both an educator and chief executive officer, Dr. Napoli-Abella Reiss said at the time of her hiring, adding that Dr. Jackson’s would “help Peralta continue the good progress we’ve made over the past year, on both our finances and our accreditation.”

About Dr. Edith Eva Eger

Born September 29, 1927, in Kosice, Slovakia, where she lived with her parents and two older sisters, Magda and Clara, Edith lived a typical Jewish life. The family eventually moved to Budapest, Hungary, where in 1944, Nazis put them on a cattle car to Auschwitz as part of the Final Solution. Clara, a violin prodigy who “didn't look Jewish,” was hidden by her music professor and continued to perform during the war.

Upon arrival at Auschwitz, Edith's parents were immediately murdered. She spent her entire incarceration with her older sister, Magda. Most chillingly, Edith had at least two interactions with “the Angel of Death,” Dr. Josef Mengele. The first was when he tore her away from her mother with the promise that “your mother is going to take a shower and you’ll see her soon.” The second was when he discovered she was a ballerina and gymnast and demanded she dance for him. Edith shared the bread she received for dancing with fellow prisoners who remembered this act of kindness, and it ultimately saved her life.

Edith was placed in full prisoner garb on top of a munitions train as a human shield to keep the British from bombing, and after a brief stint at Mauthausen, was sent on a forced death march to Gunskirchen Lager. Overall, there were 44,000 incarceration sites and ghettos, including 23 concentration camps; this film includes a living liberator who remembers every moment of his experience in that self-described "hell hole." The full breadth of this horror is described in vivid detail through the eyes of Alan Moskin, a 94-year-old Patton¹s Army soldier who liberated Gunskirchen Lager. Edith was pulled from a pile of corpses when she was liberated in1945.

After the war, Edith's nightmare did not yet end. From the Communist overthrow of Hungary to her husband's imprisonment and her smuggling him out, to their arrival penniless in the United States, Edith’s remarkable determination held fast. She refused to be a victim and never gave up. Today, at the age of 93, Edith is a published best-selling author and internationally acclaimed psychologist.

Cambridge College Hosts Cyber Diversity & Inclusion Summit

Celebrating 50 Years as a Pioneer in Adult Learning

2021 Summit Addresses the Historical Gap in Diversity and Inclusion in the Cybersecurity Workforce

To change the landscape for women and people of color in the tech industry requires a multi-dimensional partnership approach.”

Cambridge College Hosts Cyber Diversity & Inclusion Summit
The Power of Diversity: Solving CyberSecurity’s Global Challenges

2021 Summit Addresses the Historical Gap in Diversity and Inclusion
in the Cybersecurity Workforce

BOSTON, MA, October 2021: Cambridge College will host their annual Cyber Diversity and Inclusion Summit, The Power of Diversity: Solving Cybersecurity’s Global Challenges in conjunction with Governor Baker’s Annual Cybersecurity Awareness Month in October. In collaboration with the National Security Institute (NSI) and their distinguished leadership, the Summit will focus on addressing the challenge of recruiting and preparing women and people of color for the cybersecurity field, as well as creating opportunities for them to enter the tech industry. The Summit will launch on October 19th and will be delivered as a series of convening events over the next four months.

The opening event will highlight the challenge of enhancing diversity in the tech talent pipeline. The fireside chat will feature Corey Thomas, Chairman and CEO of Rapid7, a leading cybersecurity firm, and Stephanie Browne, VP of Talent Acquisition, Diversity & Inclusion for Blue Cross Blue Shield MA both of whom will share their unique perspectives on strategies to address this challenge in the workforce

“Our goal in presenting this summit is to support Governor Baker’s efforts to address the talent shortfalls and challenges of the cybersecurity industry. Three years ago the College made a strategic commitment to focus on providing access for women and people-of-color to opportunities in the field of emerging technologies. Increasing diversity in this sector is critical to address equity of opportunity and access to talent, both of which limit the innovation potential of an ever-expanding technology industry,” notes Deborah C. Jackson, President of Cambridge College.

In March of 2020, Cambridge College formalized a partnership with NSI at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School to address the pervasive lack of under-represented groups in the technology industry, specifically within cybersecurity roles. With more open positions each year than there are skilled applicants, cybersecurity professionals are in high demand and this partnership aims to expand the inclusion of women and people of color in the cybersecurity workforce. In addition to linking students to noteworthy cybersecurity leaders and professionals, the partnership will collaborate on providing hands-on experience to a diverse group of students in the technology, cyber, and national security space through NSI’s Nat Sec + Tech Diversity internship program launching in 2022.

The talent pipeline shortage in the tech industry has led to an estimated one million unfulfilled jobs in the US in 2020, with many companies at a loss regarding how to address these gaps. The significant underrepresentation of women and people of color is reflected by current data that shows Blacks represent 7.9%, Hispanics 6.8% and women only 25% of the cybersecurity workforce.

“It is imperative that we diversify and build a stronger cyber and tech pipeline to address the significant talent shortfall in the workforce. This effort, and the comprehensive approach of Cambridge College to raise awareness on the topic, will help to lift communities and individuals that have for too long been unable to access of this emerging field,” added Gary Evee, CEO of Evee Consulting and NSI Fellow.

To be successful in creating a more diverse workforce for this industry, an introduction to the career at an early age is very important. To do this, Cambridge College launched the CyberSummer Academy to build awareness and to ensure pathways to the field of cybersecurity for k-12 youth from across the Commonwealth. The program was created in collaboration with industry and school partners in order to ensure relevant and focused experience for students and to encourage them to consider future careers in the tech industry.

“To change the landscape for women and people of color in the tech industry requires a multi-dimensional partnership approach, states President Jackson. “We are doing this by creating a CyberSummer Academy to introduce youth to the tech talent pipeline earlier; developing a range of cybersecurity programs to meet the specific needs of industry for talent; and establishing partnerships like the one with NSI, to ensure students are meaningfully engaged with industry even before they graduate.”

Life Accurately Paints Living in the Modern Age for African Americans

Life: Four Quarters Plus Overtime

Life: Four Quarters Plus Overtime

Author Floyd L. Griffin

Floyd L. Griffin brilliant study of the lives of African Americans in a country marred with racism

COOKSTOWN, NEW JERSEY, USA, October 15, 2021 / — The African American presence in the United States has had quite an impact in that nation’s culture. Floyd L. Griffin’s “Life: Four Quarters Plus Overtime” is an analysis of all the four quarters of the life of an African American in the U.S. The book uses the unique perspective of sports terms as a vehicle for the prose.

Griffin’s book cuts up the life cycle of a human being into four stages, or quarters. The first quarter covers the early development of the individual, from birth to the teenage years, and discusses the child’s growth into an early adult in today’s society. The second quarter follows immediately where the first ends, continuing well into the quarter-life, and talks about the responsibilities and challenges that young and established adults confront such as finding jobs and forming lasting relationships.

The third and fourth quarters, on the other hand, cover everything from midlife to late adulthood. These chapters deal about heavier long-term topics like leaving a legacy, aging gracefully, finding and maintaining a purpose, and finding contentment. It also goes into overtime, which is all about old age and the last stages of life.

There are two things that make Griffin’s book unique: it is one of the few books of its kind that uses the life and experiences of African Americans as basis for each stage in life. It also simplifies the language into everyday terms used in sports, specifically basketball and football, which makes it simpler for everyday people to understand.

“Life: Four Quarters Plus Overtime” gives readers an unfettered look into the African American’s experience in America today. It is a book about the idealism of growth and the realities of aging in a world where racism is far from an afterthought.

With commentary from people from all sectors of society, African American knowledge, and wisdom, and quotes from scripture here and there, Floyd L. Griffin’s book promises to be an important text in the field of social studies in the future.

Griffin was elected State Senator from the 25th Senatorial District of Georgia and Mayor of Milledgeville, Georgia. Griffin also served as a helicopter pilot in Vietnam and served as a colonel in the US Army. He is now running as a Democrat for Secretary of State in Georgia to continue the fight against oppression and racism. You can also visit the author’s campaign website at

Interested parties may purchase the book from bookstores everywhere.
