Why poverty is rising faster in suburbs than in cities

first_img Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 By Scott W. Allard, Professor of Social Policy, University of Washington and first published on theconversation.comIn the U.S., the geography of poverty is shifting.According to a May report from the Pew Research Center, since 2000, suburban counties have experienced sharper increases in poverty than urban or rural counties.This is consistent with research across the U.S. over the past decade – as well as my own book, “Places in Need.”The suburbanization of poverty is one of the most important demographic trends of the last 50 years. Poverty rates across the suburban landscape have increased by 50 percent since 1990. The number of suburban residents living in high poverty areas has almost tripled in that time.These new trends are not just occurring in the wake of the Great Recession. In 1990, there were nearly as many poor people in the suburbs of the largest 100 U.S. metropolitan areas as within the cities of those metros, even though poverty rates historically have been much higher in cities.Why is poverty rising faster in suburbs than in cities? There are many reasons. Population growth in suburbs plays a part – the U.S. has become a suburban nation. However, that’s not the most important factor. My research finds that suburban poverty is growing three times faster than population size in suburban communities across the country.As in cities and rural communities, poverty is rising in suburbs because of the changing nature of the labor market. For those in low-skill jobs, earnings have stayed flat for the last 40 years. In most suburbs, unemployment rates were twice as high in 2014 as in 1990. Good-paying jobs that don’t require advanced training have started to disappear in suburbs, just as they did in central cities more than a quarter-century ago.These national employment trends have contributed to rising poverty everywhere, but the impact has been particularly acute in suburbs, where there are a large percentage of workers without advanced education or vocational training.Rising suburban poverty has surprising implications for the safety net. Many suburbs lack the resources needed to respond to growing poverty. For example, I’ve found the typical urban county spends nearly 10 times as much on human service programs per low-income person as the typical suburban county.What can be done? I have a few suggestions.First, the U.S. must maintain federal funding of safety net programs like food stamps, which are effective at reducing poverty. Increasing public funding of human service programs also will help to support those weathering a spell of unemployment or seeking to advance in the labor market. Communities must find ways to cultivate a new generation of local leaders and nonprofit organizations capable of tackling suburban poverty challenges.Finally, poverty problems continue to rise, albeit at slower rates, in cities and rural communities. Across geographic boundaries, the nation has a shared interest in the fight against poverty. If we cannot come together on this issue, we will not be successful in that fight in any one place – urban, rural or suburban. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Gov.

Edinburgh’s Nick De Luca flips Tom Grabham in dangerous tackle

first_imgWednesday Feb 27, 2013 Edinburgh’s Nick De Luca flips Tom Grabham in dangerous tackle Edinburgh centre Nick De Luca has been banned for 13 weeks following the red card he received for a dangerous tackle late in the game against the Ospreys at the weekend. He attended a disciplinary hearing in Dublin earlier today. De Luca lifted and flipped Ospreys replacement back Tom Grabham, who we last saw on RD for his incredible ball control at the Glasgow Sevens in June last year. After a quick chat, the touch judge and referee opted to send De Luca for an early shower just four minutes from time in Edinburgh’s 24-7 defeat to the Ospreys, their tenth loss in a row. The tackle contravened Law 10.4(j), which states: “Lifting a player from the ground and dropping or driving that player into the ground whilst that player’s feet are still off the ground such that the player’s head and/or upper body come into contact with the ground is dangerous play.”De Luca returned to action recently following a fractured eye socket that occurred while training in January. He is now back on the sidelines again though, this time with a ban for what was a nasty, albeit clumsy, looking tackle that could have caused a bad injury. The PRO12 disciplinary committee took into account all the evidence presented, including videos of the incident, and concluded that the tackle was at the top level for this type of offence. The top level ranges from 12 to 52 weeks.Having taken into account aggravating and mitigating factors, they concluded that 13 weeks was an appropriate suspension for the Scotland international.The suspension runs until midnight on Sunday 26 May 2013. De Luca has the right to appeal.NOTE: The video has now been removed by the BBC unfortunately.

Greg Abbott lifts mandate, opens businessesTexas Governor Greg Abbott announced he is issuing an executive order lifting the mask mandate in Texas at an event in Lubbock yesterday, according to CNN.Abbott also announced that starting March 10, all businesses are allowed to open at 100% capacity.While health experts worry the new executive order will cause another rise in cases, Abbott said Texans have “mastered the daily habits to avoid getting COVID.”Many disagree with Abbott’s decision. In an official statement, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo said, “Every time public health measures have been pulled back, we’ve seen a spike in hospitalizations.”Abbott’s executive order also addresses how county judges should handle the situation if COVID-19 worsens in their communities, but there will be no penalties for people who do not wear masks and a judge cannot put anyone in jail if they refuse to follow COVID-19 orders. Biden announces there should be enough vaccines for all adults by MayPresident Joe Biden speaks about efforts to combat COVID-19, in the State Dining Room of the White House, Tuesday, March 2, 2021, in Washington. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)President Joe Biden announced there will be enough COVID-19 vaccines for all adults in the U.S. by the end of May, according to the Associated Press.Officials have said although more vaccines are being produced and delivered, it may take until the summer for all Americans to be vaccinated based on the pace of delivery rollouts and the willingness of citizens to get vaccinated.Pharmacies will receive more than 800,000 Johnson & Johnson vaccines this week in addition to the 2.4 million Pfizer and Moderna vaccines they will already be receiving.Biden has also begun pushing states to get teachers vaccinated by the end of March to hasten school openings.“Let’s treat in-person learning as the essential service that it is,” Biden said.Neera Tanden withdraws nomination to be director of budget officeThe White House pulled its nomination to make Neera Tanden director of President Biden’s budget office due to not being able to defeat bipartisan congressional opposition, according to the New York Times.Biden released a statement saying Tanden requested to be withdrawn from nomination. “I have the utmost respect for her record of accomplishment, her experience and her counsel,” Biden said. Biden also committed to finding another role in his administration for her.FILE – In this Feb. 10, 2021, file photo Neera Tanden, President Joe Biden’s nominee for Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), appears before a Senate Committee on the Budget hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington. (Anna Moneymaker/The New York Times via AP, Pool, File)Biden’s pick surprised many in both parties due to Tanden’s previous work with Hillary Clinton during her 2016 presidential campaign and her bipartisan criticism of certain legislators. Tanden’s chances at gaining support from most of the senators lessened after hearings held to speak about some of Tanden’s social media posts.“I believe her overtly partisan statements will have a toxic and detrimental impact on the important working relationship between members of Congress and the next director of the Office of Management and Budget,” West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin said prior to the withdrawal.Following Tanden’s withdrawal from the nomination, officials are now expecting Biden to nominate Shalanda Young, who previously served as the staff director of the House Appropriations Committee.No evidence of ANTIFA at Capitol assaultFBI Director Christopher Wray testified in front of Congress, expressing distress over the events of Jan. 6.“That attack, that siege was criminal behavior, plain and simple and his behavior that we, the FBI, view as domestic terrorism,” Wray said according to ABC News.Wray said the bureau has arrested more than 270 suspects that were involved in the insurrection and the majority could be labeled as “militia violent extremists.” Currently, there is currently no proof that any of them were ANTIFA members.When Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar asked Wray if he believed the FBI could have done more prior to the attack, Wray answered, “I do not consider what happened on Jan. 6 to be an acceptable result, and that’s why we’re looking so hard at figuring out how the process can be improved.” ReddIt Iris Lopezhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/iris-lopez/ Iris Lopez Facebookcenter_img What we’re reading: Former Vice President dies at 93, Chad President killed on frontlines What we’re reading: Chauvin found guilty in Floyd case, Xi to attend Biden’s climate change summit Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Linkedin Twitter Twitter + posts ReddItlast_img read more

A second online journalist assaulted

The second online journalist to be assaulted in less than a month, Malinivsky was waylaid by thugs as he left a café in the eastern town of Donetsk at about 11 pm. He received several heavy blows to the head but his injuries were not life-threatening.”We are worried by the steady increase in violence against journalists and we ask you to take effective measures to ensure that a feeling of impunity does not take hold,” Reporters Without Borders said in a letter to interior minister Yuri Smirnov. The organisation also said that investigators should not rule out the possibility that the attack was connected with Malinivsky’s work.Ostriv has carried articles that are very critical of “oligarchs” in the town of Donetsk. But the Institute of Mass Information (IMI) reported that the police were working on the assumption that it was just an altercation between drunken individuals and had detained a suspected participant.Oleg Eltsov, the editor of the online newspaper Ukraina Kryminalna, was assaulted by two thugs as he left his home in Kiev on 24 July. He attributed the attack to his coverage of the murder of journalist Georgiy Gongadze, above all his reporting of information supplied by Igor Gontcharov, a former member of the criminal investigative police who was arrested in May 2002 for his suspected role in several murders.A key witness, Gontcharov accused police and senior interior ministry officials of being responsible for the death of Gongadze, a political reporter and editor of the online newspaper Ukraina Pravda who went missing in 2000. Gontcharov died on 1 August 2003 in prison in unclear circumstances.

Jailed #Limerick driver suing over fatal accident he denies causing

Both men were banned from driving for ten years.This Wednesday before Mr Justice Brian Cregan at the High Court in Limerick, Mr Cleary opened civil proceedings against the MIBI for what his counsel, Gerry Tynan SC, said were significant damages the Limerick man was entitled to.Mr Cleary is claiming that he was not the cause of the accident and should be compensated for the back injuries he suffered in the accident and for the ongoing “depression, shock and upset he has suffered to this day because of the loss of the life he has been blamed for”.Michael Gleeson SC, counsel for the MIBI, said the defence will argue that “racing” was a factor in the fatal collision but essentially the MIBI, has been left to “pick up the pieces” as Roman Andrew absconded.The case is expected to last three days and will hear evidence from expert witnesses including Garda PSV forensic collision investigator, Mike Reddy, who attended the scene in 2006.
