Required fields are marked * When the Supreme Court struck down the true intent of the Voting Rights Act in 2013, the Court’s main argument was that the landmark civil rights law was outdated.“Discrimination against minority voters may have been pervasive in the 1960s when the law was passed, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote, but ‘nearly 50 years later, things have changed dramatically.’”But according to a comprehensive study on the Voting Rights Act by Caltech professor of history and social science, Dr. Morgan Kousser, the Justice’s assertion is to be refuted. Kousser examined more that 4,100 voting-rights cases — the most wide-ranging body of empirical evidence — and this evidence and data show that voting discrimination remains, concentrated in certain states and regions in the country, albeit in varying ‘current’ forms.The evidence, Kousser writes, “shows that the Chief Justice’s factual assertions were incorrect, that the coverage formula was still congruent with proven violations.”The Voting Rights Act has been central to debates in American government for the last two years, and Dr. Kousser has extensively studied the Voting Rights Act for over two decades. Earlier this week, the New York Times wrote an Editorial piece, featuring Dr. Kousser’s findings.[http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/19/opinion/sunday/voting-rights-by-the-numbers.html ]Those wishing to speak with voting rights expert, Dr. Kousser, who is very clear and concise on this compelling issue, as the 2016 elections approach, contact Deborah Williams-Hedges at [email protected] or (626) 395-3227.

How can I gain experience I need?

first_img Comments are closed. How can I gain experience I need?On 3 Jun 2003 in Personnel Today I am working in a small recruitment agency which specialises in accountancy.I am the company administrator/researcher and have been here for more thanthree years. I have done my Certificate in Personnel Practice, and alsograduated with a 2:2 in psychology and health sciences. I have repeatedly applied for jobs in HR, and I am looking for anadministrative post so that I can progress and further my education within thesector. Why is it so tough? How am I supposed to gain HR experience when no-one willgive me the kickstart I need? Professor Towler says: You are clearly very well qualified and obviously keen to continue buildingyour portfolio of qualifications and experience, so I can fully understand yourfrustration at being unable to get the career move you want. I found myself in exactly the same position a number of years ago when Ileft the civil service to start my own consultancy. Like you, I had a basket full of qualifications but was struggling to breakinto the market. Then a former colleague gave me an extremely simple andvaluable piece of advice. It boiled down to ‘what do you specialise in, and howdoes your specialism add value?’ Once I found the answer I never looked back, and in many ways I think thisis the key to your problem, too. HR is made up of a number of sometimes very different areas and levels ofexpertise. These include a wide variety of disciplines, such as training,corporate services, operations, rewards, learning and development, recruitment,employment law, compensation and benefits – just to name a few. In other words,the HR market is comprised of a range of different niches which change anddevelop according to organisational and business needs. I suggest you study the market and identify potential niches you can competein. You have a recruitment background, and your CPP and degree give youadditional areas of expertise, too. You have research skills and you know theaccountancy business. You probably also know quite a lot about financial services more generally –and this is just for starters. So, rather than applying for administrative posts, try looking for morespecialised positions where your background gives you a stronger competitiveadvantage.
