GOP Sen. Kevin Cramer is leading a drive to reward 300,000 Indian visa workers for taking college graduate jobs from at least 200,000 young middle aged or older American graduates. Via Twitter, the North Dakota Senator is pushing the “Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act,” which was also championed by former GOP Rep. Kevin Yoder until he lost his 2018 election.The legislation “is about exactly that: fairness,” Cramer tweeted. “The long wait for these green cards is a disservice to legal immigrants and to the potential of the American economy. Let’s get this passed.” But Cramer’s bill does not offer fairness or safeguards to the many Americans who are losing careers or starter jobs to the imported army of roughly 500,000 Indian workers and recruiters, said Dawn Collins, a former vice-president at J.P. Morgan Chase bank.

Michael H. Hodges Detroit News Fine Arts Writer Published 10:19 PM EST Jan 16, 2019 Rick Sperling, the artist and educator who created Detroit's Mosaic Youth Theatre, may be retiring in August, but he's already put in place the new brain trust to carry his creation well into the future — Stefanie Worth and DeLashea Strawder. Which is a good thing, as Mosaic — created to fill the gaps as arts were cut from public schools — has built up an enviable reputation over 29 years for top-notch performances and working wonders with kids, often from highly distressed neighborhoods. Indeed, that's why "Hamilton" producer Jeffrey Seller dropped $1 million on the nonprofit a couple of weeks ago. The Detroit News recently sat down with Worth, the new executive director, and Strawder, recently named artistic director, to talk about the theater's past and future. "I'm an alum," said Strawder, a young woman … [Read more...] about New era at Detroit’s Mosaic Youth Theatre

By Michael H. Hodges Detroit News Fine Arts Writer Published 7:14 PM EST Dec 17, 2018 When the automobile was young, the well-heeled sometimes bought a chassis and engine, and then went looking for a body-maker to wrap the whole thing up in a zippy package. In Hollywood in the 1920s, that body-maker was Harley Earl, the subject of William Knoedelseder’s absorbing new biography, “Fins: Harley Earl, the Rise of General Motors, and the Glory Days of Detroit” (Harper Business). Earl was the “first car customizer,” as Knoedelseder put it, who created sleek, handsome bodies for Hollywood royalty like Douglas FairbanksCQ, Mary Pickford and “Fatty” Arbuckle. “Designing the fantasies of these young people,” Knoedelseder said, reached at his Los Angeles home, “Earl learned what they wanted and what could be done,” Word got around. “General Motors heard of him when they were trying to compete … [Read more...] about New book ‘Fins’ celebrates designer Harley Earl and GM glory days

But now, Democratic lawmakers in New Jersey are carrying out a power grab in an unusually public fashion: They are seeking to make Republicans a permanent minority by essentially writing gerrymandering into the State Constitution. The plan comes amid a national reckoning over the consequences of gerrymandering and has been met by fierce opposition from across the political landscape — from Republicans, nonpartisan watchdog groups, the … [Read more...] about Democrats in New Jersey Have a Firm Grip on Power.
