*******SupremeMasterTV**** – Bogotá, Colombia: Good Policies, A Great Place to Live (In Spanish). Episode: 1741, Air Date: 21 June 2011. Today’s Enlightening Entertainment will be presented in Spanish, with subtitles in Arabic, Aulacense (Vietnamese), Chinese, English, French, German, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Mongolian, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Thai. Greetings, kind viewers. Today, we are pleased to present the inspiring transformation that Bogotá, the capital city of Colombia, has had in recent years. Colombia is a country located in South America and internationally known for being one of the top biodiverse countries in the world with abundant plant and wildlife; and for having one of the most extensive freshwater resources on the planet! Colombia’s development has been increasing rapidly through participation of diverse sectors of the community in the creating and implementing of various beneficial social policies. The case of Bogotá is particularly interesting because some of its development strategies have gone beyond borders. They have succeeded in demonstrating that policies aimed at environmental preservation and the improvement of people’s quality of life are urgently needed to ensure a comprehensive and sustainable progress. Bogotá is literally at the core of Colombia. Today the capital has about 11 million people and is a cultural, economic and educational center of the region. But it has not always been so. Just within two decades, the city showed surprising development in its alternative transportation, its educational opportunities and its cultural offering. Bogotá has been recognized for its policies many times. At the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2006, Bogotá was awarded with the Golden Lion prize in the category of Best City for its urban and architectural projects over the past 15 years. The Golden Lion prize is one of a number of awards that Bogotá has received in recent years. Among the main ones are: Recognition in 2002 by the United Nations Development Program as an exemplar in urban management; The Cities for Peace Award by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); and the 2004 City with Heart Award from the United Nations in recognition of the promotion of volunteerism, emphasizing the policies of “Bogotá without Indifference” and “Bogotá without Hunger.” Around the world, pictures have been seen of the 300 km of permanent bikeways and 120 km of weekend bikeways that have been created in Bogotá. This environmentally friendly alternative transport benefits thousands of people daily, along with the mass transit system, TransMilenio, which moves 39,000,000 passengers per month! These have transformed the pace and rhythm of city life. At least 10 years ago, we didn’t have the mobility that Bogotá now has at this moment. Along with citizens of Bogotá, Supreme Master Television spoke with Bogotá City Council Member Ms. Ana Lucia Sandoval to find out more. We have been working on the task of giving Bogotá alternative forms of mobility. I think many have seen the benefits of bike paths in the city. On Sundays, holidays in Bogotá when the streets are closed, so that only the people move who want to walk, jog or bike or skate. It is a unique, exciting space that the city offers that of course all Bogotá citizens thoroughly enjoy. This initiative, which has also been implemented in other cities in Colombia such as Cucuta and Pamplona, helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create a healthy recreational option for everyone. Also, in Bogotá and across the country, a series of programs in education has been started to encourage higher school attendance rates. Bogotá City Council Member Mr. Celio Nieves kindly explained some of the city’s accomplishments that have dramatically raised the quality of education. Our boys and girls in educational institutions have a wellness policy that did not exist before. There, boys and girls receive health care. In terms of support and educational assistance, they are offered a grant to remain ensuring that there are no dropout children due to the economic situation of their families. In the past, many children could not go to school because they did not even have breakfast in the place where they live. So, with a few economic studies, we have been making progress, many new schools with optimal on-site infrastructure, with laboratories, with environmentally protected areas, with libraries, with laboratories, with sports fields, with good teachers who are intensely devoted to the formation of those children who come from almost all, the low-income families. Of 1.02 million children who are enrolled in our official institutions, approximately 700,000 are benefiting from these nutritional supplements. Over 50 new institutions, and more than 200 fully reinforced so that today they have become new institutions, and almost all have been improved so that children are in a much nicer space. In addition to the dedicated government officials, many women and students, etc. are also seeking to protect what is everyone’s shared responsibility. In the south of Bogotá, near a river called Tunjuelito, whose waters were highly contaminated, a strong neighborhood and youth movement has sought to protect the river basin and decontaminate its waters. Their work has inspired young people from other localities to join together to protect the city’s wetlands, native forests and ancestral heritage. Such initiatives of various citizens’ groups have encouraged the country's leaders to include environmental, cultural, and also animal welfare issues in their agendas. The first thing we did was, when I came to the Council, as part of the Mayor’s development plan, to include the issue of animal protection, that is, to be part of the district’s agenda. We have made a bill, which I co-authored with another councilman, for mass adoption days for dogs and cats in the city. Right now we are processing, in the second discussion, the public policy of animal protection in the district, which we consider extremely important. I found a powerful tool, and I discovered that there are thousands of Bogotá citizens who love the animal protection issue. Last year, there was a march throughout all of Bogotá, a massive march. We believe that bullfighting, it would be a great opportunity to eliminate it from the culture of Bogotá. Also, animal circuses. All of these issues are topics that are an opportunity for progress for the citizens. What we are telling people is let’s progress not only on human issues, but in all areas, both in matters of animals as well as of a healthy environment. Another issue to which many Bogotá residents have responded with active interest is “responsible consumption.” Responsible consumption – we are trying to be a city that consumes goods and services responsibly for environmental protection. Responsible consumption emerged as result of another bill that we have, which I authored, where it created a comprehensive strategy for electrical and electronic waste. So people do not know what to do with the TV, with the iron, they throw it in the trash and then it goes to a landfill. So, in Bogotá, there is a bill that makes all such waste to be able to have a strategy to handle them properly. The changes that have happened in Bogotá are recognized by locals and visitors alike. Parks, theaters, museums and a wide network of public libraries visibly reflect the transformation of the city, and most importantly, the lifestyle of those living in it. I have lived here in Bogotá since I was born, so my family is from here, and I want to invite everyone to come to know this great city. It offers a great amount of cultural activities. There is the Museum of Gold, the National Museum. We have our beautiful historic part which is the Candelaria. A very nice trip is to walk over there at night time; have a cup of coffee, ride the TransMilenio (bus). We have Monserrate, the Salt Mines just outside Bogotá, in a town called Zipaquirá. For children, we also have other cultural activities like puppets and a theater in general in Chapinero, a place called the Golden Dragonfly. There are other attractions like the flea market, which is a very nice place to go on Sundays. Well, for the people who are health conscious and take care of the planet and animals, you can also find more than 40 vegetarian restaurants in different parts of the city. We had people from Texas, United States, and Dublin, Ireland, and they say to us that they never expected to take home such a good image from Bogotá, and that they found out it has many parks, big and beautiful parks, and a well-taken-care-of city, people who are very loyal, people who are very kind. They love the places for fiestas (parties) in Bogotá, the Center, the Candelaria… Many of the places most appreciated and recommended by the citizens have been built or remodeled within less than the past decade. The look and the types of services currently offered have become more inclusive and accessible. We have the chance to see the European Film Festival. We also have the French Film Festival. We have the Festival of Ibero-American Theater which features many countries. And well, just now, we are at the International Book Fair. The Colsubsidio Theater is a theater for musical theater especially, very important. The Fine Arts Theater, too, is another very lovely place for listening to music, also for art. The Symphony Orchestra of Bogotá for example in December gives free concerts at different locations. Also, I am the author of a project that promotes artistic works in public spaces, and the Bogotá citizens may perceive it free and direct anywhere in the city. Bogotá is a city of democracy. It is a city of many young people, but also with a lot of experience, with many Christians and people who have sought refuge in God. This concludes our report on just a few of the many policies that have led Bogotá to become a joyful city, an award-winning city, and a leading city in its efforts to constantly raise its own standards. We especially thank Council Members Ms. Ana Lucia Sandoval and Mr. Celio Nieves for their cooperation and inspiring updates about the city’s enlightened policies. Bogotá is my city where I was born, where I grew up, a city of opportunities, of course, with great challenges, but we are confident that we will overcome them to become the city that we all dream of. Through the conscientious, forward-thinking endeavors of both its leaders and citizens, may Bogotá continue to flourish in God’s grace. Thank you, cherished viewers for your company today. Now, please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television for Words of Wisdom, after Noteworthy News. Wishing you and your family peace and love.

BY ERIK SHUTE ANCHOR CHRISTY LEWIS You're watching multisource U.S. video news analysis from Newsy. The fight over union bargaining rights moves to the front-lines of Ohio. State-wide, labor unions are fighting to repeal Senate Bill 5, also known as Issue 2. Here’s WeAreOhio’s latest ad campaign supporting the 350,000 workers in the line of fire. “I don't want the politicians in Columbus making decisions for the firefighters, the police, teachers, nurses or any organization that's helping people...Fewer firefighters can mean the difference between life or death. And that's why I'm voting no on Issue 2." MSNBC’s Ed Schultz noticed that ad looks strangely familiar. On his show, Schultz says the same interview footage was used in by a pro-Issue 2 campaign, “Vote Yes on Issue 2.” Here’s the clip. ED: “Now, here's the commercial from a group calling itself “Building a Better Ohio.” WOMAN: “Without issue 2, communities will need to lay off hard working firefighters to pay for the excessive benefits.” QUINN: “Fewer firefighters can mean the difference between life and death.” WOMAN: “Vote ‘Yes’ on Issue 2.” ED: “Righties will do anything to win, won't they? The New York Times reports the state Senate’s Issue 2 has upped to ante compared to battles waged in Wisconsin months before. “Senate Bill 5 goes further than the anti-bargaining law that Wisconsin’s Republican-led Legislature enacted in March over the protests of tens of thousands of union supporters... The Ohio law bans binding arbitration and bargaining on health coverage, pensions or staffing levels.” Still, supporters of the law say Issue 2 could be the ‘fresh start’ Ohio needs in its public sector. A writer for “The Plain Dealer” on Cleveland**** says... “Imperfect though it may be, Issue 2 will give local governments and school districts more tools to control labor costs and protect taxpayers. It ends state-mandated wage step-ups, requires performance-based pay [and] … would revamp the current system of binding arbitration.” And in an echo from Wisconsin’s debate, The Times Journal reports the controversy could not come at a worse time for the Republican majority -- who’s jobs are also up for ‘re-negotiation’ in the 2012 elections. A Wellston City Councilman warned... “We need to send a big message to Columbus telling them that they are out of touch with the people of this state and they are going to be on the line in 2012 and a lot of them need to go back home and learn what the people want.”

What began as a dream in business communication is today a political and social challenge for Juan Vides, a resident of Oceanside who seeks to represent District 20 in the Assembly of New York. "Let's connect people," says Vides, "that's my slogan. That's what I want to achieve ", and that is that communication is his passion. As CEO of TechACS Corp, a marketing agency specializing in website design, Vides began working with the Hispanic community of Long Island since he was 26, when he was part of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Long Island (Long Island Hispanic Chamber of Commerce) and helped them with the creation of their website. There, he says, his commitment was born. Vides, 40, came to live in the United States as a Salvadoran refugee at the age of four, and when he was 16 he became a US citizen after former President Ronald Reagan granted amnesty to his family. "I became an American citizen two years before turning 18 to be able to vote in the elections," said Vides, who says that "it was time for a Latino from Nassau County to occupy a seat in the Assembly", and that is Vides explained that his impulse was born the day he had to investigate who was his representative. Vides refers to Melissa 'Missy' Miller, who in 2016, decided to make her first foray into a public office, running for the New York State Assembly and replacing Todd Kaminsky, after he won the elections for the Senate of NY. Unopposed to the Republican nomination, Miller defeated Democrat Anthony Eramo, Long Beach City Councilman, with 52% of the vote and swore his first term on January 1, 2017. Although there are several months to go before the big election on November 7, Vides follows the community closely, sharing with residents and listening to their concerns. "We share the same problems. We are Hispanic, we are Anglo-Saxons, we are Jews. We are all residents of District 20 and that is what should unite us to improve our lives, "said Vides, emphasizing the importance of unity.

Don't let Jarett Waite destroy the pristine beauty of Santa Clara Utah. In September of 2018, Councilman Waite voted in favor of the controversial 250 unit project in the Tuacahn Wash near Rachel Drive and Red Mountain Road. Not only would this project decrease our property values, but it aids to destroy what we have all come to love about Santa Clara... The open spaces and views! Let Jarett know he needs to make good on the commitment to the general plan and protect the beauty and desirability of our community.
