“The Sunday Political Brunch”—June 26, 2016

Sunday, June 26, 2016

Last week we spoke of third-party candidates, and I don’t think we can stop at one. There are more potential spoilers this week. I also mentioned a couple of weeks ago that unforeseen issues could be spoilers in Campaign 2016, and we’ve had some of them, too, this week! Let’s “brunch” on all of this:

Cicilline Helped Lead House Sit-In; Family Owns Building Tied to Repeated Violence

Cicilline, pictured center back, owns a building that has had repeated ties to violence -- including a shooting this week.

Sunday, June 26, 2016

David Cicilline, who helped lead the Democratic sit-in calling for stronger gun control legislation, up until recently was the co-owner of property on Providence’s Federal Hill occupied by a night club that has been the site of shootings and knife violence. Now, it is just owned by his brother John Cicilline, a convicted felon. David Cicilline transfered his share of the building to his brother in March of 2015 after he came underfire for a double stabbing at the same club.

Leonard Moorehead, the Urban Gardener: Midsummer’s Eve, Festivus

Sunday, June 26, 2016

No one is immune. Full Moon, planets and Sun align the Northern Hemisphere towards true North. Our cities ignore many natural phenomena and yet verbena and coneflowers claim cracked sidewalks and all of us feel special during Midsummer’s Eve. Various calculations reflect fluid cultural history, no gardener can deny the allure of Oberon’s Bower, or the impulse to burn an outdoor fire and pile sage branches onto red hot coals, a magic cloud flavors grilled food. Worries flee cleansed guests. Our gardens are eloquent celebrants, the wheel is our symbol, spring falls behind and summer is upon us.

America’s Most Followed Members of Congress

Sunday, June 26, 2016

Politics is a lot about popularity, whether it’s among constituents or with deep-pocketed donors. While regular elections remain one good measurement of popularity, it isn’t a good gauge for how well-liked someone is outside of her home district or state.

Fit for Life: Habits - Out With the Old, in With the New

Sunday, June 26, 2016

Success is reaching the pinnacle of whatever goals you set out to accomplish. But before you achieve success, a chain of events must happen. You need to be consistently improving. The only way to improve is to always be striving for a better solution. You need to follow a blue print with a specific task in mind. Every step must be planned and achieved with consistency. This will only happen when you create habits that are positive. These tasks need to be fulfilled daily in order to be considered a habit. Similar to training a muscle, the more consistently you train it, the stronger it gets. Once you replace bad habits with good ones you will create a path to success.

Top-Ranked Colleges That Pay Off the Least

Sunday, June 26, 2016

The past decade has seen college tuition prices soar at public colleges, with an even steeper increase in student fees. Those fees include the use of campus facilities and operation costs, according to the Washington Post. A similar trend has gone on in private colleges as well: The average cost of tuition and fees at a private, not-for-profit, four-year university in 2015 was $31,231, representing a stark increase, according to CNBC. The college experience has many invaluable benefits, but the return on such a substantial investment remains among the biggest concerns for students and their families to avoid falling into student loan debt.
