Mark Zuckerman – CEO
Re-emphacizing its roots.

In light of Russian interference with American politics and the spreading of “fake news” to its 2 billion readers world-wide, Facebook has decided to limit news outlets’ easy access to the global communications’ super information freeway.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg says people go to Facebook to connect with other people – they don’t necessarily want to be bombarded by hyper-partisan statements and charges that contaminate their social experience on Facebook.

Here’s more on the issue from The Oregonian.

In a round of town hall meetings over the last four days, Senator Jeff Merkley is telling Oregonians that even GOP lawmakers have sobered up to the realities of the need to take care of children just born, and those born elsewhere but who have been raised in this country – the only country they’ve ever known.

Fighting Fair – Fight Smart by Counselor Peggy Defazio

A Modern Perspective on Mental Health

Fighting Fair – Part 1

It seems as though none of our important relationships are free from conflict. Even when we are full of love and respect for the other person, we will clash at times. Conflicts are a normal part of intimate relationships and should not be alarming.

Conflicts usually arise when we disagree. We can disagree about our perceptions, ideas, expectations, or desires. A perfect, and well-known, example of this type of disagreement is when one person expects to have a tidy house where each person picks up after themselves and his partner has consistent “challenges” in putting things away.

We also get into conflict when we have a strong desire to control our world. In addition, we fight when we have deep fears that are triggered by our partner’s behaviors. For example, if we fear being rejected and we feel our partner is not paying enough attention to us, we may blame our partner for our feeling scared and lash out at them.

Please understand that not every disagreement is important enough to fight about – as my grandma used to say “pick your battles.” Not all of our disagreements need to develop into a full-fledged fight. So, if the topic is important enough to fight about, we have to learn how to fight in a manner that works towards resolving the issue without damaging the relationship.

In my opinion, the most important thing you can do to encourage fighting fairly is to stay on topic. Let’s say, you and your partner are fighting about money, you cannot start going on about dirty socks all over the house – you have to stay focused. If you don’t stay on topic, the chances that you’ll reach a resolution are slim to none. Remember, if we don’t resolve a conflict, we will continue fighting about it until we do find a resolution – even if it takes years to find that resolution.

More tips on fair fighting next time.

Women’s March Returns to Newport On January 20

Demonstration at Newport City Hall

Women’s March Returns to Newport On January 20

Last year’s triumphant Lincoln County Stronger Together March, done in conjunction with women’s marches throughout the country, drew more than 1600 protestors and their imaginative signs and pink hats to Newport. And now a repeat is planned for this Saturday, January 20. This year’s march, titled “Resist & Persist Women’s March Lincoln County” will again begin at Newport City Hall, 169 SW Coast Highway, Newport. People will congregate in front of City Hall at 11:30 am, with the march commencing at Noon. The march will take place “rain or shine.”

The march route is different from last year’s route. This year demonstrators will walk from city hall north to Highway 20 (Olive Street), east on Hwy 20 to Eads Street, then cross Highway 20 and go north on Eads Street past Newport High School to the Grandstand Stadium in front of the high school track and field.

The goals of the march are to “Resist patriarchy, corruption and oppression” and to “Persist for democracy, equality and truth.” Men, women and children who want to stand in support of these goals are urged to join in. Asked why they are marching, responses have been diverse: “for my granddaughter’s dreams,” “to help all of us to feel empowered,” “in support of Dreamers, immigrants, people of color, and all minority groups,” “in support of LGBTQ community members,” “to fight for the soul of our democracy.” Amy Greer of South Beach said “We can vote with our ballots, vote with our money and we can vote with our actions. Americans have the right to do that, but not for much longer, if we don’t protect those rights. Whatever you do, do something.”

Last year’s Stronger Together March was held in tandem with similar marches all over the country to protest the inauguration of President Donald Trump, with the massive Women’s March on Washington in D.C., which many Lincoln County women flew across country to participate in, serving as the catalyst. It was estimated that around 4 million people participated in the marches nationwide, making it potentially the largest single-day demonstration in United States history. People in many other countries also participated in marches.

This year there are again many marches taking place throughout the U.S. on January 20 or 21. Organizers of the Resist & Persist Women’s March Lincoln County urge those who will not be in Lincoln County this weekend to find a march near them and participate.

“Over the past year we’ve heard many calls for another demonstration,” says Sheila Swinford, President of the Central Oregon Coast Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW). “With the ongoing degradation of even basic human rights, the #MeToo movement, threats of nuclear war, assaults on our environment, and the list goes on… the support for taking social activism to the streets has grown exponentially. This is a vital opportunity for our community to march together and share our commitment to our common values.”

Shirts displaying the march “Resist & Persist” logo will be available for purchase starting hopefully on January 17 at Canyon Way, 1216 SW Canyon Way, Newport and at The Red Roof, 7040 Gleneden Beach Loop, Gleneden Beach. Black long-sleeved t-shirts will sell for $10, and sweatshirts for $20.

This year’s Resist & Persist Women’s March Lincoln County is being organized and supported by the Central Oregon Coast Chapter of NOW, Oregon Central Coast PFLAG, and the Diversity Coalition of Lincoln County. Facebook page:
