Family Justice Center of Washington County Selects Comcast Business to Support Bandwidth and Reliable Connectivity

Comcast Pacific Northwest

Comcast Business is providing Family Justice Center of Washington County (FJCWC) – an organization dedicated to ending the cycle of domestic and family violence by providing safety, healing and hope to residents in Washington County, Oregon – with Comcast Business Ethernet Dedicated Internet (EDI) and Comcast Business Voice Mobility Solutions. The services help ensure reliability and speed for FJCWC’s network, creating a technological foundation that supports the organization’s growing connectivity needs today and in the future. Often, survivors of violence and abuse have to travel to multiple disparate locations to access the valuable resources they need – but because many don’t know how to go about finding these resources, they give up. Since 2018, this hasn’t been the case in Washington County, OR, as FJCWC offers a variety of services to survivors in one convenient place, including access to advocacy, counseling, restraining orders, safety planning, legal aid, food assistance and much more. FJCWC is built on a foundation of trust, mutual collaboration and connection. Survivors of violence trust the organization to provide top-notch services that help put their minds at ease – and technology is crucial to doing so effectively and efficiently. “Comcast understands what it is that we're trying to do and the importance of what we’re trying to do, and has really stepped in and stepped up to support our organization,” said Rachel Schutz, Executive Director of FJCWC. “They've stepped in to provide support in multiple different ways so that our service is reliable, and so that we can partner in the longer term.” Comcast Business Voice Mobility Solutions streamline how FJCWC communicates with survivors, staff and partners. An important feature of this solution is the ability to route calls when someone is unable to pick up, as the organization’s phone system includes 24/7 crisis lines and acts as a call tree for partner organizations. Meanwhile, Comcast Business EDI provides the speed to tackle high bandwidth needs, a key component to supporting FJCWC’s virtual court system and virtual legal and benefits assistance. While these systems use significant bandwidth, it’s critical they are always able to function, emphasizing the importance for FJCWC to work with a reliable connectivity provider. The virtual court, which FJCWC offered prior to the pandemic that popularized virtual meetings, allows survivors to avoid being in the same room with somebody who has harmed them. Comcast Business’ connectivity is key to provide reliable connectivity for virtual court sessions and meetings, especially if a survivor has applied for a restraining order. “Technology is essential to the day-to-day operations of organizations, like FJCWC, that support victims of abuse, as it can help these organizations provide their clients with a sense of comfort and security that they may have never felt in the past,” said Rob Brenner, Vice President of Comcast Business for Comcast’s Pacific Northwest Region. “Comcast Business has established itself as a company that deeply cares about both the quality of solutions it provides as well as how those solutions can best help the often-critical missions of its customers. We’re proud to be supporting the FJCWC with technology solutions that enable their team to help and heal survivors within our community.” About Comcast BusinessComcast Business offers a broad suite of technology solutions to keep businesses of all sizes ready for what’s next. With a range of offerings including connectivity, secure networking, advanced cybersecurity, and unified communications solutions, Comcast Business is partnering with business and technology leaders across industries and integrating Masergy, a leader in software defined networking, to help drive businesses forward. Backed by a next-generation network, Comcast Business has been recognized for its growth, innovation, and leadership in global secure networking. For more information, call 800-501-6000. Follow on Twitter @ComcastBusiness and on other social media networks at http://business.comcast.com/social. About Family Justice Center of Washington County In 2014 our community convened a group of over 60 stakeholders including elected officials, service providers, law enforcement, community members, and most importantly, survivors, to design something new. After four years of planning, the Family Justice Center of Washington County opened its doors. Now, in one place, survivors have access to advocacy, counseling, restraining orders, safety planning, legal aid, food assistance and much more provided by a committed group of agencies, and coordinated for seamless access. Since opening in 2018 we have served over 21,700 survivors, and we envision a future in which that number is zero. Contact Details Jack Follman jack_follman@comcast.com

New Scholarship Examines How Changing Generations Affects U.S. Politics

University of Michigan Press

As we approach another presidential election, attention will return to polls and how we can expect voting to vary by generation. Already New York Times articles in 2024 have featured the headlines “Young Voters Have an Entirely Different Concept of Politics” and “Prospect of a Rematch of Biden-Trump Causes Young Voters to Retreat.” Our pop culture often assumes that different generations have different political leanings and beliefs—that the Silent Generation is all Republican, white, and conservative, or that Millennials are liberal and diverse—but are these assumptions true? The University of Michigan Press is publishing a book that explores this very question: Generational Politics in the United States: From the Silents to Gen Z and Beyond edited by Sally Friedman & David Schultz. Generational Politics in the United States From the Silents to Gen Z and Beyond Edited by Sally Friedman & David Schultz Publication Date: June 18, 2024 Cloth ISBN 978-0-472-07676-5 | $90.00 Paper ISBN 978-0-472-05676-7 | $44.95 Open Access ISBN 978-0-472-90444-0 454 pages, 62 figures, 38 tables, 6x9” Distributor: Chicago Distribution Center press.umich.edu/Books/G/Generational-Politics-in-the-United-States2 "What's in a generation? How do we know when a new one begins, while an old one ends? Going beyond public opinion to also explore how generations manifest themselves within elite behavior, this book is bound to be a cornerstone in the study of generational politics and political socialization, shaping the discourse for years to come." — Elias Dinas, European University Institute This is the first comprehensive book that examines the concept of generations from a political science perspective. It brings together chapters from an array of political science scholars that will give readers insight into the role of generations in American politics, how generations relate to other variables such as age, race, gender, and socioeconomic status, how politics in the United States are impacted by changes in generations, and how the passing of the Baby Boom generation and rise of the Millennials and Gen Z will change American politics. This book is part of the University of Michigan Press's "Dialogues in Democracy" collection, which invites all readers to find books that contextualize their experiences of voting in America. To make sure all interested readers have an opportunity to engage with this scholarship, the book will be published open access and will be immediately available free-to-read online. The University of Michigan Press is a vital component of UM Library's Publishing division, which is the primary academic publishing division of the University. In partnership with authors and series editors, they publish in a wide range of humanities and social science disciplines. They champion the library's dedication to helping all learners, researchers, and creators to succeed through global digital and print publishing and distribution programs. The Press, with a rich history of publishing expertise, continues to lead in the development of digital scholarship and to support the dissemination of quality knowledge as widely and freely as possible.

Cardano, Raboo and Ordi are Trending This Week, Find Out Why

Total Media

The crypto market is buzzing this week. Cardano's got everyone talking, Raboo's making headlines, and Ordi's emerging as a dark horse. But what's the deal with all this excitement? Buckle up, crypto enthusiasts, because we're about to dive into the factors propelling these projects to the top. Cardano and Ordi have got their loyal fans, but Raboo's the one stealing the show with a mind-blowing 60% surge since launch and whispers of a 100x explosion from analysts. Read on to discover why these three currencies are trending and what makes Raboo the hottest name in crypto right now. Cardano's trend this week and its causes Cardano (ADA) has always been present in the crypto news arena, and recently, it has been back in the news again. As of June 17, 2024, it is being traded around $0.402. But it's not just about the price; the attention that is paid to Cardano is mostly focused on the next steps in its evolution. On June 9, Charles Hoskinson, creator of Cardano, announced on X that Cardano’s upcoming Chang fork is approaching quickly and that Cardano Node will likely reach version 9.0 this month. This update will improve the network for executing smart contracts. This is a significant development in Cardano and can place it at the same level as some of the leading Smart Contracts platforms, such as Ethereum. Cardano has many enthusiasts waiting for the actualisation of the proposed technology, and with this update, Cardano may pave itself as one of the great blockchains. While some analysts remain bullish about Cardano, we have seen that the future of this coin is still undecided, and only time will tell whether it will bring hope to its army of investors. The recent trend of Ordi Ordi (ORDI) is the dark horse newcomer shaking things up in the crypto world. While it may not be a household name yet, ORDI has recently seen a surge in interest. As of June 17, 2024, ORDI is trading around $41.80. But what's behind this uptick in attention? One factor could be Ordi’s new partnership with BidoFinance, a Bitcoin staking protocol, which has garnered significant community interest and contributed to the token's breakout. Ordi's unique value proposition as an "Inscriptions" cryptocurrency is also generating interest. This is where inscriptions are helpful; users can write informative text on the Bitcoin blockchain, and the information can never be erased, which paves the way for owning digital art or having a decentralised way of storing particular data. Altogether, Ordi is quite a young project, but its potential and new essential features alongside new partnerships attracted attention. On one hand, market gurus have undertaken forecasts that Ordi is a coin with the potential to grow in the future, while on the other hand, there are sceptics who are of the contrary opinion. Only time will tell if Ordi can live up to the hype, but one thing's for sure: it is a coin we should watch. Raboo: The memecoin with a mastermind Cardano and Ordi might be grabbing headlines, but the real party is happening in the meme coin realm, and Raboo is the guest of honour. This isn't your average doge-faced token chasing fleeting trends. Raboo's more like a meme maestro conducting an orchestra. Raboo's presale has been a smash hit, bringing in over a cool $1.7 million and rocketing a mind-blowing 60% since the presale started. But Raboo's not just about the hype. They've got the tech chops to back it up. Raboo's AI-powered meme generator lets you easily unleash your inner creator and craft viral content. Also, Raboo's "Post-to-Earn" platform rewards you for your humour. Experts are predicting a meteoric rise for Raboo, with some whispers of a 100x surge. With its innovative features and gamified social experience (coined SocialFi), Raboo is poised to become a memecoin leader. This is your chance to join the Raboo revolution. While Cardano and Ordi ponder their next moves, Raboo's already started the party. Get in early and make massive profits. Conclusion Hold onto your hats, crypto enthusiasts; this week's market is a rollercoaster of trending tokens. Cardano's loyal community is buzzing about upcoming smart contract features, while Ordi's partnership with a Bitcoin staking protocol has investors talking. But if you're looking for the most exciting project with a sprinkle of meme magic, Raboo is the name on everyone's lips. With experts predicting a 100x surge and the potential to become a top-tier meme coin, Raboo is an opportunity you don't want to miss. Don't wait on the sidelines; dive into the Raboo revolution and see where it takes you! This meme coin with a brain might be the smartest investment you make all year. You can participate in the Raboo presale here Telegram: https://t.me/RabootokenPortal Twitter: https://twitter.com/Raboo_Official Contact Details Total Media Solutions media@Totalsolutionspr.io

Market Forecasts Hint At A Lithium Revival: Could This Be A Golden Opportunity For Argentina Lithium (OTCQX: LILIF) And Other Miners?

Benzinga

By James Blacker, Benzinga The global lithium market has seen a precipitous price fall over the last year and a half, from a peak of over $80,000 per ton in November 2022 to around $15,000 currently. Recent forecasts, however, suggest that the market is poised for a turnaround as supply/demand dynamics become more favorable, presenting a unique opportunity for investors to gain exposure to the market through miners such as Argentina Lithium (OTCQX: LILIF), Albemarle (NYSE: ALB) and Arcadium Lithium (NYSE: ALTM). Has Lithium Finally Bottomed Out? One of the main reasons for this price crash was that mining companies ramped up production in anticipation of booming demand for electric vehicles (EVs) that never materialized as economic uncertainty made consumers more cautious. This left a surplus of lithium on the market, which placed downward pressure on prices. However, S&P Global anticipates that there will be a global lithium deficit of some 4,000 tons by 2027, with global demand set to hit 1.87 million tons, up from 884,000 tons in 2023. In the U.S., demand for lithium is predicted to grow 487% by 2030 to nearly 412,000 tons by 2030. Furthermore, the next few years could see substantial growth in the battery EV market. Grand View Research forecasts the market will grow at a CAGR of 33.6% from 2024 to 2030 to reach nearly $9 trillion. All this points to a potential correction in the price of lithium as demand looks set to outpace supply with increasing lithium consumption, particularly in the EV sector. Argentina Lithium: A Promising Contender Against this backdrop, one company to keep an eye on is Argentina Lithium, a miner focused on acquiring lithium projects in Argentina and advancing them toward production. The company has projects covering over 67,000 hectares (166,000 acres) in the Lithium Triangle in South America, which produces about half of the world's lithium and contains around 60% of known global lithium reserves. Argentina Lithium’s growth trajectory has been significantly bolstered by a $90 million investment in Argentina peso equivalent by Stellantis N.V., one of the Big Three American automakers looking to make its mark in the electric vehicle arena. Argentina Lithium recently announced promising exploration results from its Rincon West Project, where brine samples collected from the 12 th exploration hole were found to contain from 322 to 371 mg/l of lithium. The company said it is now beginning its 13 th exploration hole and a second rig is beginning drilling of the first deep pumping well. The Rincon West project covers over 5,000 hectares (12,999 acres) at the Rincon Salar in Argentina’s Salta Province. It is notable for its significant lithium concentrations and proximity to other major development projects. “Our twelfth hole demonstrates a long interval of impressive lithium values in porous host lithologies. Thus far, our drilling at Rincon West demonstrates a continuous aquifer of concentrated lithium brines over an extensive basin,” stated Miles Rideout, V.P. of Exploration. With the anticipated rebound in lithium prices driven by rising demand for EVs, Argentina Lithium is poised to benefit from this possible market correction. The company, with its strategic projects in the lithium triangle and promising exploration results, seems well-positioned to become a key player in the market and, certainly, one to watch.
