HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Problem

Global efforts to stop human trafficking continue to gain support. The Department of State’s Office has increased the monitoring and combating of trafficking in persons, which is headed by Acting Director Kari Johnstone. The effort leads the United States' global engagement against human trafficking, an umbrella term used to describe the activities involved when someone obtains or holds a person in compelled service.

Here us what individuals can do:

NEW AND IMPROVED AIRPORT

Announcement
Images: 

Officials who agree this New York City Airport gets no respect, but they're about to change all that.

The Queens airport is so bad, its classified as third world although its one of the busiest in US, but it is extremely cramped and outdated. La Guardia Airport is on the waterfront of Flushing Bay and Bowery Bay, in East Elmhurst and borders the neighborhoods of East Elmhurst, Astoria, and Jackson Heights.

DRINKING WATER DANGERS

News

For the second time in as many years, the good people of Louisiana, New Orleans, are being threatened by a potentially deadly Amoeba, which is known as the “brain-eating” Amoeba. Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH) confirmed the presence of Naegleria fowleri Amoeba in the water supply.

TO BUY OR TO GET BY?

Idea

That is the question ...

Move your bank accounts to take advantage of perks and earn more interest
If you’re paying a monthly fee for your checking or savings account, you would benefit from researching some of newest banking offers out there. Not only do some banks offer sign-up bonuses simply for opening an account and setting up direct deposit, but some offer attractive interest rates to new customers as well.

CUBA NO YANKEE SI

Issue

Defection is what Cuban athletes did to commemorate 7/26 El 26 De Julio, the Castro Brothers first and foremost national holiday. It also happens to be the first nation al celebration day since re-establishing US/Cuba diplomatic relations. What does that say about human rights and individual freedoms inside the communist island?

CAMP PAIN FOLLIES

Attraction
Images: 

With a first debate of the presidential camp pain approaching, candidates may wind up saying just about anything they can to improve their polling position. We have seen this before and believe you me, you will definitely see it again.

This American independent drama will continue to be played out all over this nation, through televised debates and video clips. Be aware that there will surely be of a flurry of lies, much mud slinging and huge amounts of empty promises and blind accusations.

MASSACRE IN AMERICA

Problem

Mass shootings and gun violence have persisted and increased from the shooting of then US Representative Gabby Giffords back in 2011 to the multiple shootings this week.

There have been 204 mass shootings during the past 204 days of 2015 so far. Why has no one done anything to stop the way we are killing one another?

RETIREMENT BENEFITS?

Idea

What does "Home Sweet Home" really mean for older seniors citizens, who are pushing 90? The decision of where to live can mean the difference between assistance, autonomy, convenience, happiness, health, safety and tranquility.

CITY IMAGES went to visit Gloria Seibold, who lived on Fordham Place and now resides at United Hebrew Home. The location is 391 Pelham Rd, New Rochelle, NY 10805 The facilities are clean and the multilingual staff appears to offer skilled nursing, rehabilitation, and assisted living services.
