WORKERS WORLD NEWSPAPER: Organizing for the struggle

first_imgAndy KatzWorkers World newspaper plays a central role in our political work and organization. For many of us, being handed a copy of WW at a demonstration or community meeting was our first introduction to the party.We have a lot to be proud of in our paper. It’s been in print since 1959, and it’s been a continuous weekly paper since the early seventies. It is one of the last, if not the actual last printed socialist weekly in the U.S.The paper’s archives are being digitized. Flip through the back issues catalog of WW and you will see the whole glorious history of people’s struggles around the world since 1959. I want to give a big, no, a huge round of applause to everyone who contributes to WW.Some of you who are newer to communism might be thinking, what is it with socialists and newspapers? Major corporate papers are collapsing all over the country from lack of circulation and advertising as the physical newspaper is overshadowed by the internet.Yet, you go to an anti-war demonstration and you can pick up seven different leftist periodicals. Part of it is because [Vladimir] Lenin, the leader of the Russian Revolution, raised the necessity of having a centralized, nationwide newspaper to coordinate and centralize the theory and practice of revolutionary socialists in that country. Another part is that for most of the past century, newspapers were the only way to talk to our class, the working class.This is the fundamental purpose for our paper: to reach our class, to offer our socialist politics, to counteract the corporate imperialist media that bombard us from every angle 24/7.We want WW to be a paper that anyone can pick up, see what isn’t seen in the corporate media, see that there is resistance, see that people are in the streets and see that there is another way, another viewpoint.But the paper is not the only way that we accomplish this. The only way you get a URL like is by joining the internet early in the game. We’ve been propagandizing on the internet since 1994.Something that comrades might not know is just how much traffic gets, which is in the thousands.My generation and those younger have grown up in an era of constant revolutionizing of technology, media and communication: the unfolding revolution of social media. We have also made great strides in this area, but we can certainly improve in terms of utilizing social media to its full potential.And yet, while we push to reach as many as we can — which has really got to be taken up in a serious way by the party youth — we can’t risk underestimating the necessity of a physical, printed paper.It’s how we reach the incarcerated members of our class who recently engaged in a historic strike, the migrant workers, the most poor and oppressed who may not have easy access to the internet.It’s an organizing tool, since handing someone a paper can spark a face-to- face conversation that can build relations more deeply than a thousand “likes” [on Facebook]. On an internal level, the constant activity of filling a paper every week makes us disciplined. Our editorial staff has a deeply political call every Saturday morning to discuss the world situation.Lamont Lilly talked about the paper in a way that really stuck with me. He likened the paper to an amazing, talented, intelligent, brilliant, romantic partner whom we have grown used to, with the honeymoon phase long past. But while the paper might not be as shiny, new and exciting to us, for someone who’s never seen it before, it can be quite alluring.So much work, love, time and money go into the paper. If you’re looking for a way to get plugged in to Workers World Party, consider getting involved with the writing, editing and production of the paper. The paper is such a powerful organizing tool, please make the best use of it. Get it out to the community! Get it out to our class!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Home repossessions at 35 year low

first_imgHome repossessions by banks dropped by almost 25% last year the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) has revealed.During 2016 some 7,700 homes home were taken back by banks, down from 10,200 in 2015, the lowest number since 1982.The CML also says that mortgage arrears were down last year by 7% and that it is part of a long-term trend (see graph).Repossessions peaked in early 2009 following the financial crisis at approximately 50,000 a year then began a prolonged year-on-year decline as the economy recovered, with some of the largest reductions over the past two years.“It is encouraging to see another improvement in arrears and possessions during a year in which borrowers were clearly helped by the downward trend in mortgage rates,” says Paul Smee (pictured, left), director general of the CML.“But customers do need to be ready for a time when the outlook may not be so benign, with pressure on real incomes increasing and as interest rates begin to move upwards again.“Lenders remain committed to helping borrowers work through any period of temporary payment difficulty and remain in their home wherever possible.”The number of buy-to-let mortgage arrears during 2016 also fell, by 11% compared to the year before, while the number of buy-to-let properties repossessed by lenders remained the same, at 600.Paul Smee home repossessions Council of Mortgage Lenders February 10, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Experts share ideas on the future university

first_imgThey came from the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan and from New York University’s campus in Abu Dhabi, from the University of California, Davis, the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, the Virginia Commonwealth University, and from the University of Utah. At Harvard they came from the Graduate School of Design, the Law School, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the Kennedy School, and the T.H. Chan School of Public Health.University presidents, college deans, architects, academic administrators, and students came at the invitation of Harvard President Drew Faust to learn, to consider, and to share ideas about “Building the Research University of the 21st Century.”The conference grew out of a conversation at the first meeting of the Harvard Allston Steering Committee nearly two years ago. Faust noted in her remarks that the group had been discussing how to think about the campus of the future when Harvard Law School Dean Martha Minow said, “Let’s have a conference about that.”The focus of the two-day meeting (Oct. 22-23) was not on the research conducted in academic settings, though the breadth of that research had an impact on the discussion. Rather, the sessions of the conference that drew more than 220 participants to what is now the Knafel Center at the Radcliffe Institute, and what was the Radcliffe Gymnasium at what was Radcliffe College, were focused on the physical shape campuses may take in an age of long-distance learning in a digital world.Speaking to those attending the opening session and dinner, Faust highlighted the transformation of the Radcliffe Gym, noting that the building was designed by the architectural firm of McKim, Mead, and White at the turn of the last century, and that it once included ropes on which the young women of Radcliffe practiced evacuating their dorms in case of fire. Today, it “serves a far different use in response to Harvard’s changing needs,” Faust said.University leaders and those advising them, she said, now need to focus on “how fast things are changing and how that is going to affect our future” since universities are challenged these days to be both affordable and accessible. How, she asked, does that change “the way we shape our campuses?”Speakers at the various sessions, from Richard C. Levin, former Yale University president, to Hilary Ballon, vice chancellor of NYU’s Abu Dhabi offshoot, addressed everything from the history of campus design to the nitty-gritty of dealing with community representatives during the building process. But Harvard’s development of its 358 acres in Allston was never far from the minds of the School’s participants.“We’re all keenly aware that whatever we do in Allston has everything to do with what Harvard will look like in 50, 100, 150 years,” said Harvard Provost Alan Garber of the planning of the Allston campus, which may someday be larger than the Cambridge campus.“We’re all keenly aware that whatever we do in Allston has everything to do with what Harvard will look like in 50, 100, 150 years,” said Harvard Provost Alan M. Garber of the planning of the Allston campus, which may someday be larger than the Cambridge campus. Jon Chase/Harvard Staff PhotographerDavid J. Skorton, secretary of the Smithsonian Institution and previously president of Cornell University, said there are “three things that will dictate the shape of the campuses of the future”: the current emphasis on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education, the future of online education, and competency-based education.On the first point, Skorton said the question “is whether people will listen to Drew Faust: Our country every day is becoming more oriented toward the STEM disciplines, and yet those of us who spent a lifetime in higher education and spent time in the STEM disciplines know that our problems are not going to be solved by STEM disciplines alone.”There is still an important place, Skorton said, for the liberal arts, taught in residential college settings, with direct faculty-student and student-student interactions, echoing a point Faust has repeatedly made.Many speakers stressed that whatever the future of the university campus will be, getting to it and ensuring its educational, financial, and administrative success will depend on institutions having a vision and “a decision-maker,” someone who, after listening to input from myriad constituencies, will make the hard choices necessary to move massive, complicated projects forward.Those two points were the particular focus of Levin, who noted that he had “had the opportunity to build three campuses, one local, one global, and one virtual.” The local campus, in West Haven, Conn., was made up of 1.6 million square feet of laboratories, administrative offices, factories, and warehouses sold to Yale by Bayer Pharmaceuticals. The global campus was a college created in Singapore by Yale and the government of Singapore. The virtual campus was the online education venture Coursera, of which Levin is CEO.Levin said that the principal lessons he has taken from those experiences are that “you have to have a vision, it doesn’t matter how you collect it, but somebody has to enunciate [and say] here’s a vision …You shouldn’t hire an architect until you know what you want,” and, finally, “there has to be a single decision-maker … we delegate too much to committees.”In summing up the conference, Garber spoke of the changes over time in the vision of Harvard in Allston. “When we think about space, we have to think very hard about who is the community” will be using it and about “what is our relationship to the surrounding community,” he said.“The most important question is how we think about the community and [our] place in it.”last_img read more

School of Architecture moves into Walsh Family Hall

first_imgThis semester, the School of Architecture officially left Bond Hall — its home for more than 50 years — and relocated to the newly-constructed Walsh Family Hall.Michael Lykoudis, dean of the school of architecture, said while he enjoyed his time in Bond, its location felt estranged from other areas of campus.“I’d say, ‘We’re a little bit like Hawaii. We’re the smallest state in the Union, the furthest West and a little exotic,’” he said.Lykoudis said Walsh Family Hall’s position on the edge of campus makes the school easier to find and it offers better parking access.“The location of the building is a great advertisement, if you will, for the school,” he said.The new building’s floor plan also affords architecture students more opportunity to collaborate and mix, he added.“Studios were all broken up on different floors and in some cases, smaller rooms. So, it was hard to have communication of ideas between the studios,” he said. “Here we have big floor plates on two floors … so there’s going to be a greater sense of community, greater sense of what studio culture is about.”Professor of architecture Philip Bess said he will always have a nostalgic appreciation for Bond.“Bond is in a great section of campus, you know?” he said. “From my office I could see the Dome and the lakes.”While the new location offers access to many different parts of campus, Bess said he will miss the historic quarter of Notre Dame.“We’re further away from the heart of campus,” he said.Senior architecture student Patrick Keough said he looks forward to using the new spaces in Walsh Family Hall.“The new studios will be a new dynamic for our studio culture,” he said.Though the new building offers certain advantages, the move to Walsh Family Hall was bittersweet, Keough said.“I know many of my classmates will dearly miss Bond because of the great memories we had inside of it,” he said.While the future of Bond Hall is uncertain, it will likely house offices for other academic departments, vice president for facilities design and operations and University architect Doug Marsh said in an email.“[Bond] is being considered for a variety of academic space that will be centered on undergraduate teaching and learning,” he said in the email. “More information on the backfill planning for Bond Hall will be forthcoming in the early part of the Spring Semester.”Lykoudis said the building’s location and design works well as a representation of the Notre Dame academic mission.“Architecture really embodies the unity of knowledge, which is what we at Notre Dame talk about an awful lot,” he said. “I think the building symbolizes that.”Tags: Architecture Library, Bond Hall, Michael Lykoudis, School of Architecture, Walsh Family Hall of Architecturelast_img read more
