    Gene Scharer for Congress 2020

    Hi, my name is Gene Scharer and I am a pro-union progressive Democrat running for Congress in Arizona’s District 6. I was born and raised in Michigan, but I made Arizona my home 33 years ago. I’m running for Congress because the Republican incumbent continually puts the interests of corporations ahead of those of veterans, working people, and retirees. After graduating from the University of Michigan in 1969, I began an honorable 22-year career as a teacher, but that was interrupted when I was drafted in 1971. My brother and I both served as artillerymen in the Army and this resulted in a minor disability for me, but my brother…

    The Medical Internship

    Hi. Let’s go over the quick facts about the medical doctor internship in Australia. Starting right now, what is the purpose of the medical internship Well, the purpose of the medical internship is generally seen to be an opportunity to consolidate after medical school and be assessed as a safe practitioner prior to general registration. Putting it simply the medical internship forms are provisional or preregistration year between medical school and working as a clinical doctor. It can be considered as a bit of a final test or observation of a training doctor’s capabilities prior to being able to work independently. Historically the internship form the funnel barrier to general…

    Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: Global beacon for unalienable rights

    Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the best-known advocates for unalienable rights. His life and work symbolize the quest for equality for all people. Unalienable rights are natural rights with which all people are born. They include the right to life and liberty and the freedom to pursue one’s own destiny. And yet today, and throughout history, governments around the world have denied people their rights. King’s example has inspired others to change their societies through nonviolent protest. From the Solidarity movement’s cracking of Soviet occupation in Poland to Nelson Mandela’s struggle to end apartheid in South Africa, King’s legacy continues to be a message of hope for…

    Mo Lahna honours paratriathlons advocate Alan Shanken | Gold Medal Entourage

    Without Alan Shanken, things would be more complicated because he does his best to keep me away from all the problems that could prevent me from achieving my athletic dream. He was always there to make my career go as smoothly as possible. Mohamed would have been at the Paralympics with or without me. But I always thought my goal was to make his life a little bit easier as he got there. I met Mohamed Lahna five years ago. We were on a relay team at the Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon. He was a swimmer and I was the cyclist. When I first came to the United States, I…

    Why I Became an Advocate for Mental Health Awareness

    – It is evident that our students and youth are struggling. We continually hear the statistics of depression, anxiety, and suicide being on the rise. I have felt this firsthand when I received the news that my friend’s son had died from suicide at the age of 14. This news rocked my world and forever changed my viewpoint. For years, I thought we can prevent this. It can end. Through taking the time to gain new understanding and educate myself, I know now that mental health concerns and suicide will happen. But that we need to talk about it. Standing aside and not helping others who are hurting will not…
