Food Riot: Dear Craft Beer: Please Stop Treating Me Like I'm Incompetent
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
You know, there are only so many PR events in strip clubs that a girl can take. For this girl, that number tops off at about one. One craft beer preview event in a strip club was, trust me, more than enough. You could definitely say I knew what I was getting into-the invitation listed the venue, after all. So why did I go? Because I love craft beer. Because a great date for me is one where I get to try beers I've never even heard of. Because I check Untapp'd more than my Gmail. Because I'm lucky enough to be able to write about beer, so, despite my romantic overtures, this was really about work. But here's the thing-I don't get the feeling that craft beer takes me seriously, or values what I have to say. Mostly because I'm a chick. How else am I supposed to feel when I'm at an event and most everyone there of my gender is seen as the equivalent of, at best, decoration, and, at worst, porn? I get it-craft beer is an old boys club, and maybe I should count myself luc ...

Anne Johnson: Millennials Are Key to Making America Stronger
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Coauthored by Neera Tanden, President of the Center for American Progress Looking at the broad range of challenges facing the country today -- a broken immigration system, harmful budget cuts that continue to slow economic recovery, intrusive attacks on women's health in state after state, and dangerous restrictions on voting rights -- it's clear that progressives have many fights ahead if we are going to keep our country on the right track. Millennials have already established themselves as a powerful force on these issues. And the growing gap between conservatives' outdated approach and the values embraced by Millennials will only further energize these young people to push back on the policies holding them and the country back. Indeed, our country's future demands that we embrace our next generation of leaders -- the often-underestimated Millennials -- who are the largest, most diverse, and most progressive generation the country has ever seen. And it's an electoral i ...

White House, Senators Reach Student Loan Deal Decried By Elizabeth Warren
Huffington Post - over 3 years
WASHINGTON -- A bipartisan Senate accord supported by the White House to overhaul the federal student loan program is forecast to boost government profit and increase borrowing costs in the coming years, leading student groups and some Democrats to denounce the deal. The compromise, reached by eight senators and blessed by the White House on Thursday, would result in an immediate reduction in borrowing costs under the federal student loan program -- temporary savings that would be paid by graduate students and parents beginning in 2015, according to estimates derived from the White House’s most recent budget update. Some undergraduate students will immediately pay more relative to borrowing costs that prevailed during the most recent school year, while the vast majority are forecast to pay more in the next five years, perhaps as early as 2016. Reluctant Senate Democrats, who had previously spurned bipartisan deals that would achieve the same effect as the agreement, w ...

Sen. Gillibrand, Policy Experts Call For Refinancing Of Student Debt
Campus Progressive - over 3 years
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand knows millions of Americans have been saddled with student debt, and she's pushing for legislation that would bring them relief. At an event hosted by Campus Progress Action with Gillibrand, the Democratic senator from New York touted her bill that would allow students to refinance their federal student loans, which is crucial at a time when American students owe more on their student loans than on their credit cards. “The typical student in my home state of New York owes nearly $27,000 in student loan debt, and 11 percent of students defaulted on their payments from 2009-2012,” Gillibrand said. Her plan, the Federal Loan Student Refinance Act, would allow students to refinance their student loans at a fixed rate of 4 percent, which would reduce interest payments for nine out of ten borrowers. She also called for a long-term and more comprehensive solution to the looming interest rate hike, as rates on subsidized Stafford loans will increase ...

Student Advocates Frown On Obama's Student Loan Plan
Huffington Post - over 3 years
After the Senate voted down two proposals Thursday to keep interest rates on new, subsidized Stafford loans from doubling from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent on July 1, student advocates are expected to continue drumming up support for the #DontDoubleMyRate campaign currently being championed for the second summer in a row by President Barack Obama. These groups are supporting the effort to keep rates low just two months after they blasted the proposal to tie federal student loan interest rates to the yield on 10-year Treasury bonds included in Obama's FY 2014 budget. An April 10 joint statement from several student advocacy groups -- OurTime.org, Rock the Vote, Roosevelt Institute Campus Network, National Campus Leadership Council, U.S. Public Interest Research Group and Young Invincibles -- voiced united opposition to the plan. "While the President’s budget keeps rates low in the near term, we’re disappointed that it risks sky-high interest rates in the long term," the ...

How Do Undocumented Youth Pay for College?
Campus Progressive - over 3 years
Despite the 1.7 million youth allowed to temporarily stay in the country because of the federal policy directive implemented last August by President Obama called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), the vast majority of undocumented students still face significant barriers to attending college. The American Immigration Council estimates that about 65,000 undocumented students graduate from high school every year, but only 5 to 10 percent attend Anna college, due to the costs of higher education. And for those undocumented enrolling despite the steep tuition and fewer financing option, student debt takes on a different meaning. When she was just 18-months-old, Paula Zamudio was relocated by her family from Colombia to Miami to get away from political instability and civil unrest. "My parents wanted their daughter to grow up in a safe environment," Zamudio, a student at Florida International University (FIU) in Miami and the President of FIU's Dream ...

Young Voters Matter: Analysis of Millennial Turnout, Support [LIVE UPDATES]
Campus Progressive - over 4 years
Wednesday, 5:18 P.M. Forbes: GOP Needs To Rethink Engaging Young Voters Forbes' Stephen Richer, who writes frequently about youth activism and civic participation, dissected the youth vote data today, giving some thought to how the GOP can better engage with young people.  He writes: The average armchair politician will tell you, “Oh gosh, the young always vote liberal.  It’s nothing to think/worry about.” Wrong.  Republicans won the youth vote in 1984 and 1988.  And they were competitive throughout the 90s. Something has changed.  And if Republicans (we) are to fix the problem, we have to know how the problem came to be. Three thoughts: Obama is just the man.  This is the easiest one.  If this is the case — if young voters are infatuated with Obama not because of his ideas or party label but because of his personality, dulcet voice, jump shot, cool vibe, etc. — then the problem solves itself for Republicans in four years.  If it ...

Anne Johnson: Student Debt on Millennial Voters' Minds This Election
Huffington Post - over 4 years
With less than two weeks to Election Day, plenty of pundits and journalists are wondering aloud if Millennials will come out in the same numbers they did in four years ago. In the four years since Obama was elected, roughly 15 million Millennials have turned 18 and become eligible to vote. Today there are 46 million young people (18-29) who are eligible to vote and our generation now makes up one-fifth of the entire voting-eligible population. There's no doubting that Millennials matter, and any candidate who fails to engage them will have a very hard time getting elected. This year, both candidates have focused heavily on the economy -- and with good reason, as it is on the mind of nearly every voter. But what gets far too little attention is the fact that the future of the American economy is tied directly to the success of young people. The ability of this generation to innovate, explore, and succeed and, in turn, the health of our economy, is at risk as we face an ...

Anne-Marie Johnson: When A Right Becomes Threatened
Huffington Post - over 4 years
As a woman of color, of a certain age, the threat of losing one's right to cast a vote is not some far off, distant memory in some far off foreign land. My life began at the time of the Civil Rights Voting Act. I grew up listening to the heart wrenching stories of death threats and actual violence from my relatives who lived in the South. Some of my female relatives who were raised in the northeast, were old enough to remember a time when a woman's right to vote was but a dream. What I read in the history books as a child about the American struggle for the right to vote were not experiences happening to "those" people. They happened to my people. My family. Americans. And here we are once again. America, 2012. I'm certainly not comparing the violent crimes and severe governmental obstruction of the past centuries to what's going on. But it's vital for Americans to take a moment and truly realize what is being threatened and what is at stake. In several states across the ...

UPDATED: Senate Announces Deal to Keep Student Interest Rates Low
Campus Progressive - over 4 years
UPDATE: Congress passed a deal on Friday, reached earlier this week, to keep interest rates on subsidized Stafford loans at 3.4 percent. The bill was approved today by the House with a vote 373 to 52 and the Senate with a vote of 74 to 19.  With just a few days before student loan interest rates are set to double, party leaders in the Senate have reached a deal to keep the rate steady for 7.4 million students. “We basically have the student loan issue worked out,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) told reporters on Tuesday. The $6 billion agreement would be paid for primarily through savings from a change in how employer pension payments are calculated. Some savings will also come from tying the amount of time students can borrow at the low rate to the length of their degree program. Congress must pass this legislation by July 1 to prevent the interest rates from doubling from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent on federally subsidized Stafford loans. This woul ...

Where Will You Be On #StudentDebtDay?
Campus Progressive - over 4 years
Campus Progress Action, along with a coalition of national partners, are gearing up for Student Debt Day tomorrow—where hundreds of college students and young people will meet on Capitol Hill to ask their Senators to prevent the Stafford interest rate from doubling to 6.8 percent before the fast-approaching July 1 deadline. Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), and Senator Jack Reed (D-RI)—who both co-sponsored legislation to prevent the rate hike—will be speaking with students and youth activists at a rally, along with the director of Campus Progress Anne Johnson. College students will also share their debt at the rally, which will be held at the Senate Swamp on the Northeast side of the U.S. Capitol building Although there is bipartisan support for keeping the cap on the Stafford interest rate frozen at the current 3.4 percent, there hasn’t been agreement on how to pay for the $6 billion cost of the extension. Democrats have proposed creating revenue to cover the cost by clos ...

White House Secretary Blasts Boehner for Calling Stafford Fight a “Phony Debate”
Campus Progressive - over 4 years
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney blasted House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) in a press conference Thursday for reportedly telling House Republicans in a closed meeting that the recent focus on student debt—specifically the fight on keeping the Stafford interest rate from doubling to 6.8 percent before the July 1 deadline—was a  “phony debate” and that the measure to stop the impending hike wouldn’t pass. “You know our position on this,” said Carney to the White House press corps, “It is unconscionable to allow these rates to double for 7 million students around the country who depend on low interest rates to allow them to attend college,” he continued. “Support for taking action to prevent that from happening has generally been bipartisan, and we hope that this report – again, based on reporting out of closed conference meeting – turns out not to be true.”  In a news conference in late April, Boehner suggested that the economy—not higher education woe—should b ...

*Updated with fresh quotes from Laguna Beach Planning Commission members Anne Johnson and Norm Grossman* Laguna Beach Planning Commission members Norm Grossman and Anne Johnson, both of whom are cited below by Royal Hawaiian owner Doug Cole as being partially responsible for his decision to close his restaurant/nightspot, have each just spoken seperately to Laguna Beach Patch. "It's too bad, because we always hate to lose a business," Johnson tells Laguna Beach Patch. "I did not know they were closing. I had heard they having financial problems. I'm sorry to hear they couldn't make it." Regarding the noise complaints, Johnson says "we always have problems when residential and commercial areas are contiguous to each other. We had them with the Pottery Place, Mozambique, and Mosun when they first opened, so I was reluctant to let (Royal Hawaiian) have amplified music. They claimed it was just one neighbor who complained, but we had several complaints from the property manager an ...
