FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY a non-fiction film commemorating Martin Luther King, Jr.‘s famous “Letter from Birmingham Jail.” No longer will the Letter from Birmingham Jail be in the SHADOW of the “I Have a Dream” speech.
The film stars community leaders of Columbus, Ohio and educators and leaders of The Ohio State University. The Letter from Birmingham Jail is an open letter written on April 16, 1963, by Martin Luther King, Jr. The letter defends the strategy of nonviolent resistance to racial discrimination, arguing that people have a moral responsibility to break unjust laws. After an early setback, it enjoyed widespread publication and became a key text for the American civil rights movement of the early 1960s.

The Battle of the Coral Sea, fought from 4–8 May 1942, was a major naval battle in the Pacific Theater of World War II between the Imperial Japanese Navy and Allied naval and air forces from the United States and Australia. The battle was the first action in which aircraft carriers engaged each other, as well as the first in which neither side’s ships sighted or fired directly upon the other.
In an attempt to strengthen their defensive positioning for their empire in the South Pacific, Imperial Japanese forces decided to invade and occupy Port Moresby in New Guinea and Tulagi in the southeastern Solomon Islands. The plan to accomplish this, called Operation MO, involved several major units of Japan’s Combined Fleet, including two fleet carriers and a light carrier to provide air cover for the invasion fleets, under the overall command of Shigeyoshi Inoue. The U.S. learned of the Japanese plan through signals intelligence and sent two United States Navy carrier task forces and a joint Australian-American cruiser force, under the overall command of American Admiral Frank J. Fletcher, to oppose the Japanese offensive.
On 3–4 May, Japanese forces successfully invaded and occupied Tulagi, although several of their supporting warships were surprised and sunk or damaged by aircraft from the U.S. fleet carrier Yorktown. Now aware of the presence of U.S. carriers in the area, the Japanese fleet carriers entered the Coral Sea with the intention of finding and destroying the Allied naval forces.
Beginning on 7 May, the carrier forces from the two sides exchanged airstrikes over two consecutive days. The first day, the U.S. sank the Japanese light carrier Shōhō, while the Japanese sank a U.S. destroyer and heavily damaged a fleet oiler (which was later scuttled). The next day, the Japanese fleet carrier Shōkaku was heavily damaged, the U.S. fleet carrier Lexington was critically damaged (and was scuttled as a result), and the Yorktown was damaged. With both sides having suffered heavy losses in aircraft and carriers damaged or sunk, the two fleets disengaged and retired from the battle area. Because of the loss of carrier air cover, Inoue recalled the Port Moresby invasion fleet, intending to try again later.
Although a tactical victory for the Japanese in terms of ships sunk, the battle would prove to be a strategic victory for the Allies for several reasons. Japanese expansion, seemingly unstoppable until then, was turned back for the first time. More importantly, the Japanese fleet carriers Shōkaku and Zuikaku — one damaged and the other with a depleted aircraft complement — were unable to participate in the Battle of Midway, which took place the following month, ensuring a rough parity in aircraft between the two adversaries and contributing significantly to the U.S. victory in that battle. The severe losses in carriers at Midway prevented the Japanese from reattempting to invade Port Moresby from the ocean. Two months later, the Allies took advantage of Japan’s resulting strategic vulnerability in the South Pacific and launched the Guadalcanal Campaign that, along with the New Guinea Campaign, eventually broke Japanese defenses in the South Pacific and was a significant contributing factor to Japan’s ultimate defeat in World War II.

A federal court has ordered a settlement in two cases that challenged the United States navy’s training and testing activities off the coasts of Hawaii and Southern California.
Environmental legal aid organization Earthjustice tells the Guardian that the settlement will secure “long-sought protections for whales, dolphins, and other marine mammals by limiting navy activities in vital habitats”.
The settlement announced on Monday establishes new regulations to begin 2018 that the navy must abide by when conducting activities in the water.
This is staff at Goodwill of Southern Nevada receiving the news from Nevada Women’s Philanthropy that Goodwill has been awarded 0,000 to launch a Veteran Integration Program that will help veterans and their spouses find jobs in Southern Nevada!
Las Vegas (Oct. 12, 2012) – Nevada Women’s Philanthropy (NWP) elected to award its 0,000 2012 grant to Goodwill of Southern Nevada, Inc. to launch a Veteran Integration Program that will help veterans and their spouses find jobs in Southern Nevada. A ,000 NWP Founders Grant will be awarded to this year’s runner-up, Helping Hands of Vegas Valley and James Seastrand Helping Hands of North Las Vegas.
“Each and every year presents a challenging decision for our members to select which agency is the recipient of our grant,” NWP president Carrie Henderson said. “This year was no different. Goodwill will spend this gift wisely and we are sure it will have a lasting impact for Goodwill and the people it serves.”
Goodwill estimates that the Veterans Integration Program (VIP) will be up and running within the next 30 days. The grant will pay for the program’s start-up costs which will include hiring three full time career specialists who have military backgrounds and understand the unique challenges veterans and their spouses often face when entering or re-entering the workforce. Roughly 400 veterans will be served through this program’s initial two-year launch.
“We can’t think of a better way to honor those who served our country than to help them find work, especially in this challenging economy. Right now, roughly one out of every seven veterans in Nevada is unemployed,” said Steve Chartrand, president & CEO of Goodwill of Southern Nevada. “Helping someone find a job is truly life changing, and we are grateful to Nevada Women’s Philanthropy for providing seed funding to develop this much-needed program in our community.”
In 2011, Salvation Army of Southern Nevada received a grant for 5,000 which it used to rehabilitate its emergency homeless shelter and medical clinic. Community Counseling Center of Southern Nevada was last year’s ,000 NWP Founder’s Grant recipient. Past grant recipients include the Rape Crisis Center, NWP Signs of Hope Counseling Center (0,000); 2009 Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, NWP Children’s Attorneys Project (5,000); 2008 Public Education Foundation, Empowerment Schools Program (0,000); 2007 Greater Las Vegas After-School All-Stars, Roundy Elementary School (0,000); Foundation for an Independent Tomorrow, NWP Employment Project (0,000). NWP has gifted .3 million since it was created in 2006.
