The ebook will be available in iBooks, ePub, and PDF versions and offers an in-depth causative analysis of foreclosures among homeowners in Chicago inner-city communities and the subsequent national and global financial impact. The book focuses on helping communities build and sustain multi-channel development strategies at individual and collective levels.

TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) is a family program by the US Department of Health & Human Services. The program is designed to provide needy families with financial assistance based on grants from the Federal government to State governments. One of the key focus areas of the program is to reduce individual and family dependence on government welfare.

The book presents a case for the effective deployment of the TANF program to empower individuals, especially those from minorities to become productive contributors to their local communities. Author Eddie L Franklin takes readers through a broad spectrum of social and anthropological viewpoints to assert the need to enable people being released from prison to gain employable skills, obtain training, and migrate out of the welfare system.

The book seeks to address the social struggle of individuals feigning mental and physical illness in order to obtain welfare. Franklin discusses subsidized labor, the rehabilitation of housing, and finding socially and economically sustainable solutions for former prison inmates. The book’s strategies also focus on helping communities invest in future-ready IT skills for their children.

According to a spokesperson for Co Op Community Development, “There is hardly a family in inner-city communities that don’t have someone of welfare and many of these people can be healthy if they stop programming their minds to be ill. We look to an alternative by using the Social Responsibility and Economic Recovery Act of 1996 which requires that any person on welfare must work a set number of hours to get benefits.”

China telecom giant Huawei hints US pressure hurting sales

Jul 18, 2019

SHANGHAI — Huawei's chief strategist said Tuesday the company would have become the world's number one smartphone maker by the year's end if not for "unexpected" circumstances — a hint that pressure from the U.S. may be hurting its sales. The comment by Shao Yang at the Consumer Electronics Show in Shanghai comes as Washington intensifies pressure on other countries to exclude Huawei Technologies from next-generation, or 5G, telecom networks where it actually is considered an industry leader. "If we had not encountered anything unexpected, we would have become number one in the world by the fourth quarter," Huawei's chief...

Jul 18, 2019

BEIJING — China's Commerce Ministry will release a list of "unreliable" foreign companies in the near future, a spokesman said Thursday, without giving a specific date. The decision to create the list, announced last week, is widely seen as a response to a U.S. decision to put Huawei Technologies on a blacklist for alleged theft of intellectual property and evasion of Iran sanctions. Chinese Commerce Ministry spokesman Gao Feng told reporters at a weekly briefing that the process of drawing up the list was underway. He said no particular company or industry is being targeted. "Companies that abide by Chinese...
