I don't bear in mind learning to read, but I know that I could read -- a bit -- before I entered school. Reading became respected to me because I could do it alone. My parents were readers, and after we moved to Fairbanks, they filled our houses with books. Woody Guthrie's autobiography "Certain For Glory" is one -- smoke-damaged in 1952 by the fire that made our first Fairbanks house uninhabitable. I wasn't reading Woody in 1952. More like children's books. The My Book Firm series, containing stories, myths and poems, I returned to again and again. The series was boldly illustrated. You not only read about Regent Midas. You saw him in bright colors. Old King Cole, too. My Book House was written for the urban middle class, not a kid on the banks of the Chena River. I also understand comics, including the Classics versions of "A Tale of Two Cities," "Oliver Twist" and "The Prisoner of Zenda. The company fire of '52 had a serious impact not only on my family life but my reading habits. Housing was tight during the Korean War, and my parents split up. My dad took a construction job out of community. The money he made he saved to buy a new house. My mother, my sister and I would live with her brothers in New York City, the Bronx. The split lasted 16 months. New York was a reader's Elysian Fields. There were so many libraries, and my mother brought home bags of children's books from rummage sales. By 1953, I had developed the guide I followed through high school. Serious reading took place at home, not school, because at home I picked the books and interpret as I pleased. More influential than the books were the newspapers adults brought through the door of 2815 Sedgwick Avenue. I could scarcely read The New York Times or the Herald Tribune, but the tabloids, The Daily News and The Daily Mirror, were stimulating. The tabs must have. Source: www.adn.com
One Personally, One Vote, One Court. We don't see too many unanimous rulings from the U. S. Supreme Court , but all eight justices rejected a constitutional assertion that only eligible voters, rather than all people, be counted when drawing election districts. The lawsuit brought by a rightist activist would have overturned the "one person, one vote" principle, in effect shifting power away from cities with lots of immigrants, like L. A. Deliver assign to on to see why the ruling won't be the last we hear of this issue. Go Ahead, Take a Load Off. Tired of standing all day at your job. The California Chief Court made its own unanimous ruling Monday that workers don't have to do so, as long as "the totality of the circumstances" allows them to get the drudgery done while seated. Here's what it could mean for cashiers, bank tellers and others who aren't clamoring to trade in their chairs for a prominence desk. Source: www.latimes.com
LONDON, April 5 (Thomson Reuters Basement) - Hibo Wardere's childhood ended abruptly at six years old when she was led to a hut outside her Mogadishu home, pinned to the baffle and subjected to the most brutal form of female genital mutilation (FGM). As a wizened old woman hacked between her legs with a rusty knife, the little girl screamed out repeatedly for her "mummy" - the person she loved and trusted most in the age. But her mother turned away. From that day on she never called her "mummy" again. Like all girls in Somalia who undergo FGM, Wardere was told not in a million years to speak about what had happened. But 40 years on, she is determined to break the secrecy that she said perpetuates this "barbaric and medieval misuse". This week sees the publication of her memoir "Cut", the first book about FGM in Britain where Wardere has lived since fleeing civil war in Somalia as a kid. "I felt as if someone had dropped me into bright orange molten lava," she wrote, recalling the day she was cut. "From head to toe the trial burned. every nerve ending screaming in agony. But worse was the complete sense of betrayal by her origin. "My life changed forever," Wardere told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. "It severed the closeness, the bond, the corporation - everything was gone. Wardere, a mother of seven from northeast London, is part of a growing anti-FGM contest in Britain, where an estimated 137,000 women and girls are believed to have been cut and 60,000 girls are thought to be at risk. She works for a new government-led FGM avoiding programme, talking to teachers, school children, medical staff and the police. Her message is simple: FGM is girl abuse and everyone has a duty to end it. PURITY. Source: www.dailymail.co.uk
