MGH Institute of Health Professions is the only school in Boston to be recognized as a "Great College to Work For."

We are very proud the MGH Institute is considered a great place to work, and are committed to assuring it remains so.”

— President Paula Milone-Nuzzo

BOSTON, MA, USA, July 16, 2018 / — MGH Institute of Health Professions was named for the ninth consecutive year as a “Great College to Work For” by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

The MGH Institute is the only school in the city of Boston to achieve the ranking in the prestigious education magazine’s 2018 survey, which was released July 16.

“Receiving this recognition for nine years in a row is an affirmation by our faculty and staff that the Institute is a place where talented people have opportunities to thrive as they dedicate themselves to our mission of educating tomorrow’s health care leaders,” said President Paula Milone-Nuzzo. “We are very proud the MGH Institute is considered a great place to work, and are committed to assuring it remains so.”

A total of 84 of 253 institutions that participated in the survey earned “Great College to Work For” status for specific best practices and policies. The MGH Institute, which has approximately 1,600 students, was included in the Small Colleges category for schools with fewer than 3,000 students.

The MGH Institute was recognized in four categories:
• Collaborative Governance, where faculty members are appropriately involved in decisions related to academic programs;
• Compensation & Benefits, where pay is fair and benefits meet the needs of employees;
• Confidence in Senior Leadership, where leaders have the necessary knowledge, skills, and experience for institutional success; and
• Respect and Appreciation, where employees are regularly recognized for their contributions.

“MGH Institute of Health Professions is a leader among Massachusetts colleges in a number of growth and success indicators, and that is the result of a workplace culture which fosters collaboration and mutual respect,” said Richard Doherty, president of the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities in Massachusetts. “It is no surprise to me that the Institute is once again recognized as a great place to work.”

Dr. Lynn Foord, chair of the Faculty Senate and director of the Prerequisites for Health Professions program, said the school’s leadership encourages collaboration with the faculty and supports the work of the Senate maintaining open lines of communication across the Institute. “Senior leadership regularly seeks discussion with faculty leaders to identify issues and frame collaborative strategies and action for success,” said Foord.

Jorge Sanchez de Lozada, the Staff Council chair and director of Technology and Web Services, said he and other staff members were part of the recent school-wide initiative to create a new strategic map. “The staff really has a seat at the table when it comes to charting the Institute’s future,” said Sanchez de Lozada. “We have a direct voice to senior leadership and the president, and it allows staff members to truly be a part of the planning process.”

“The Great Colleges to Work For distinction is well-known by academic jobseekers as a sign that an institution’s employees are valued and given opportunities for growth even when they face financial constraints,” said Liz McMillen, editor of The Chronicle. “Any college or university that’s on the list is showing that they emphasize one of their most valuable assets: their faculty and staff.”

Survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies from each institution, and a survey administered to faculty, professional support staff, and administrators. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was employee feedback.

Krystal Marshayla Duckett Explains the Importance of Art in Today’s World

Krystal Marshayla Duckett is an advocate of keeping that expression alive by sharing the importance of art in today’s culture.

SARASOTA, FL, UNITED STATES, July 16, 2018 / — Art is all around us. When most think of art, they imagine the Louvre or some other museum. Yet, art is not confined to the walls of a man-made building. Art is woven into the fabric of human expression and existence. Its majesty is a constant power. Art is inherent in humanity, as much as our blood. Art is inherent in our minds. It's a desire that humanity has always felt a need to feed.

Krystal Marshayla Duckett wholeheartedly believes in the power of art. Thus, Duckett advocates keeping the importance of art alive. Appreciation of art holds a meaning that surpasses the simple surmising of the artist’s intent. Art is a snapshot of history and should be protected and revered as such.

Art Transcends Language Barriers

Language is often misinterpreted and misunderstood. However, with art, instead of depicting meaning, it evokes feelings. So, in whatever language and background two people have, the art will convey a similar experience. Art can help people understand one another on a fundamental level.

Krystal Marshayla Duckett says that art incites communication that is otherwise impossible. The connection through art made between admirers is strong. Yet, there’s also an intimate understanding of the artist portrayed through art. Language doesn't limit art.

Art Reveals Historical Importance

The expression of art gives humanity a snapshot of the past. It gives a visual to what people wore and enlightens people with a perspective straight from the past. Without art, modern people wouldn’t understand the depth of humanity’s progression.

Historians garner a lot of other information from art. Studying techniques and supplies art history is illustrated. The artist creates a profile of themselves through their art. The substance the art is created on, the colors used, and the specific dyes all play a role. A painting will tell historians where the artist lived, their social stature, and the time they lived in.

Therefore, it isn’t simply the art that’s important, it’s the history and implications of that art. Art has a place in this world, because of the historical significance it holds.

Art is Primal Behavior

In addition to looking nice and holding significance, art is also a primal human behavior. Cavemen created art and every human society since has felt the need to create art. Since art isn’t significant to physical survival, the drive to create must be inherent in the human soul.

Therefore, the validity of it is essential to our preservation. To dismiss the power of art in our modern world, according to Duckett, is a folly of the highest degree. Humanity needs art because the ambition to create is a vivacious part of a human being.

To close, Krystal Marshayla Duckett is a proud art enthusiast. In this fast-paced world, people often fail to appreciate the beauty of life. Art is a large factor in that beauty. Duckett is steadfast in keeping that fact in the forefront of humanity’s considerations.

Rental Crime Victim Respectfully Asks Judge Archie B Hayward Jr for Jury Trial

Court Minutes with Jury Demand

Court Minutes with Jury Demand

Enterprise National felony fraud victim pleads in open court to present crime scene evidence and felonious cover-up to peers in local Lee County court

This case has significant national implications for not only the citizens of the United States, but also for our global neighbors”

— David Howe, National Car Rental 'ding and dent' scam victim

FORT MYERS, FL, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 15, 2018 / — SubscriberWise, the nation's largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today the jury trial demand from plaintiff and crime victim David Howe. The request was made in open court on Wednesday, July 11, 2018, following a pre-trial mediation conference.

In late 2016, Howe was the victim of a sophisticated and highly predatory 'ding and dent' scam resulting from a one-way rental originating at the Miami International Airport with a return the next day at SW Florida Fort Myers International Airport. Because of victim Howe's extensive work uncovering criminal behavior perpetrated against babies and children and other complex financial crimes, the suspicion of a predatory encounter resulted in a critical photo that was snapped at the crime scene and immediately sent to the manager on duty through the Verizon VTEXT server. That single photo was the basis of media coverage and a police investigation that abruptly halted the felony extortion demands while also exposing a cover-up fraught with negligence and lies.

“Last week I restated in open court and in the presence of tortfeastor’s counsel my desire to present the shocking crime scene evidence and unlawful corporate cover-up to a jury of my peers,” acknowledged David Howe, National Car Rental ‘ding and dent’ felony grand theft crime victim and survivor. “However, I remain practical about my chances and understand that this may be an extraordinary request for the court’s consideration.

“From my perspective, perhaps biased as a direct victim of an incredibly predatory ‘ding and dent’ scam, this case has significant national implications for not only the citizens of the United States, but also for our global neighbors who travel here and who are also exploited by a sophisticated system of what is effectively legal civil theft perpetrated with impunity and through a deliberate absence of uniform and predictable standards.

“And from my perspective, I sincerely believe that community-minded citizens – many of whom have undoubtedly been victimized by similar ‘ding and dent’ scams – should be the final arbitrators associated with this complex and highly-refined criminal predatory scheme. After all, it is they who must relentlessly lobby Congress to enact common-sense and reasonable regulations to put an end to an extortion scheme that has reportedly plagued Canada and is now impacting far too many here in the United States of America.

“Regardless, should Judge Hayward deny the motion for jury trial for any reason, then I will, of course, honor and respect the court’s decision. And I will nevertheless be equally prepared to present the remarkable crime evidence, including under-oath direct lies contained on a Lee Port Authority police report, photographic evidence of subsequent criminal property damage, and illegal destruction of video surveillance among others.

“Evidence that I’m certain will leave the Lee County Justice System in a daze and wondering how many other victims are forever harmed from a devastating and financially exploitive criminal encounter,” victim Howe concluded.

Attorney Reveals Dangers of Baker Act to Florida Residents

Who speaks for the child?

The headquarters for CCHR Florida are located in downtown Clearwater

The headquarters for CCHR Florida are located in downtown Clearwater

CCHR Florida

There have been cases where young children have been handcuffed, taken to a psychiatric facility and administered psychiatric drugs without parental consent.

To help prevent such abuse it is important that families understand their rights regarding the Baker Act. Freedom and rights must be fought for and knowledge is what gives a person the power to fight.”

— Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 15, 2018 / — Attorney Carmen Miller will be educating concerned citizens on the Baker Act, a Florida law that can result in an individual being forcibly taken to a psychiatric facility. The law even applies to children who can be taken into custody without parental consent. This important talk will be held at the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) center, 109 N Fort Harrison Ave, Clearwater, FL on August 8th from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.

Many parents are unaware that specific criteria must be followed for the Baker Act to be legally implemented. When these criteria are ignored, children and their parents suffer needlessly. There have even been cases where young children were transported to a psychiatric facility in a police car, their hands cuffed as if they were adult criminals. Even more disturbing is that in some instances, children have been forcibly given dangerous psychotropic drugs without their parents' knowledge or consent while incarcerated at these psychiatric facilities.

“To help prevent such abuse it is important that families understand their rights regarding the Baker Act,” stated Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida. “Freedom and rights must be fought for and knowledge is what gives a person the power to fight.”

According to the Florida chapter of CCHR, a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of children, the Baker Acting of children in Florida is a well known problem, one for which a Task Force was formed in 2017 to get to the root cause of why almost 33,000 Baker Acts were initiated on children in 2015/2016. However this notoriety has not resulted in changes to the law that would protect the rights of children and parents. For this reason, CCHR Florida holds regular events to educate families on their rights and has been working with law enforcement and school districts across the state to create uniformity in the initiation and execution of a Baker Act on a child.

There is something you can do to prevent the Baker Act from infringing on your rights or the rights of your children, other family members, your friends and your neighbors. All citizens should be armed with the basic information that will be presented on August 8th. To find out the truth about the Baker Act, and how you can protect yourself and your loved ones from its abuse or to reserve a seat at the next seminar by Carmen Miller please call 727-442-8820 or visit

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. It was L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, who brought the terror of psychiatric imprisonment to the notice of the world. In March 1969, he said, “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health.’”
