on the Reading Achievement and Attitudes of First Graders" was a doctoral dissertation completed at Clemson University. https://tigerprints.clemson.edu/all_dissertations/280/
The author of this article Matthew Glavach, Ph.D. describes how using songs for teaching phonics benefits reading programs and describes how his program helps children with reading, especially children with reading difficulty, and the power that music and songs can have for learning.
The author’s program PHONICS SONGS plus grades one and two are based on original instructional song lyrics written by the author with the music and songs by Donny and Marie Osmond. PHONICS SONGS plus has important phonics skills embedded in each song and hundreds of high-frequency reading words (sight words) appropriate for grades one and two. Songs have advantages over traditional

A reason why reading scores are so low is that we are missing a
fundamental step in the teaching of reading, and it is not phonics. The
science of reading is pointing in the direction of phonics, and it works well for
many, but not all.
Traditional phonics relies mainly on one learning style, one that many
children may not be ready for or respond to. Children, especially children from challenged or disadvantaged environments, have been found to have underdeveloped or delayed language development and poor auditory discrimination for sounds. Distinguishing sounds is fundamental to learning to read.
Music with lyrics helps develop reading skills. The rhythm in songs is slower than speech and there is more separation of sounds This helps children develop the sounds for letters and improves auditory discrimination for sounds. The melody of songs can help with developing fluent reading skills. And the words in songs help in the development of language.
Listening to, playing, reading, and creating music, involves almost every part of the brain. If one pathway is weak, music can help open others. With practice, songs build stronger connections between the right and left sides of the brain and can bring many to read.
Learning to read requires attention, engagement, and repetition, all a part of singing.
PHONICS SONGS plus is for all students, including students with reading difficulty and English as a Second Language. The program is easy to use by parents and teachers and brings fun and joy to reading. For those of us who go back a few years, Donny and Marie bring fond memories. The thirty-three songs include major phonics skills for grades one and two and hundreds of sight words. The program is available on the author’s website for only 14.95 for the songbook and finger-point reading activities, and 14.95 for the CD with the songs for each grade at StrugglingReaders.com. and Amazon.

We are calling on business matter experts, celebrities, and community champions to get involvedWe have never tried anything like this before, but that wasn't going to stop us doing whatever it takes to help the communities from Atlantic Canada.

International Coercive Control Conference Seeks to Address Root Causes of Violence Against Women Across the Globe
Experts gather to share knowledge, resources, and strategies to make Coercive Control visible and understoodNEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, September 27, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- For the second year, experts, advocates and activists will gather to address the global crisis facing women in its most invisible and unrecognizable form– coercive control. This year’s theme, Coercive Control: Oppression in Our Public and Private Spheres, seeks to connect the dots between the root cause of coercive control male entitlement to have power over in a gender unequal world, and the countless ways in which this entitlement shows up in our most intimate and personal relationships and spaces, and when it manifests in our public spaces.
The landmark Supreme Court decision that came out earlier this summer, Dobbs v. Jackson, held that women don’t have a constitutional right to an abortion. Right now in Iran, women are tearing off their hijabs and cutting their hair, protesting the murder of Mahsa Amini for wearing her headscarf too loosely, by so-called “morality police”. Security forces are currently killing an unknown number of protestors in the streets across Iran. In China, “Rice bunny” is the homophonic translation of the words “me” and “too” in Mandarin, a euphemism that feminists fighting sexual harrassment in China adopted in order to avoid government detection and censorship.
These examples, while varying in scale, severity, and impact, are manifestations of coercive control and the myriad ways in which it is exercised, whether privately, publicly , overtly or covertly, or through government or religious sanction. In short, these are ways in which male entitlement to have power over, is rooted in, reinforced by and maintained - by gender inequality. ICCC sessions on “Reproductive Rights: Coercive Control of Her Body,” “Violence Against Women As a Hate Crime,” and “Coercive Control in a #metoo Context” are just a few of the conversations at this year’s ICCC about how we might better identify coercive control, confront it, and end it.

About The International Coercive Control Conference
The conference is a first step towards bringing together those working on the front lines advocating for change, modernizing legislation, conducting cutting-edge research, and changing the narrative to make visible the patriarchal nature of abuse and coercive control.
About the Engendered Collective
The Engendered Collective is a community of survivors, advocates, and feminists that engage in knowledge-building, collective care, healing, and advocacy to increase accountability for sex-based abuse, exploitation, and violence.

L'Imam Hassen Chalghoumi a présenté à Bruxelles son dernier livre qui vise à libérer l'islam des islamistes
Andy Vermaut:"Très fort intérêt pour le livre de l'Imam de Drancy dans la capitale européenne Bruxelles. Il a pour rêve de débarrasser l'islam de l'islamisme."L'imam de Drancy est un fervent partisan de l'harmonie et de la collaboration interconfessionnelles, et ses paroles et ses actions en sont le reflet.”— Manel Msalmi, Association européenne pour la défense des minorités
BRUXELLES, BELGIQUE, September 26, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Une présentation de grande importance a eu lieu jeudi 22 septembre 2022, au Club européen de la presse dans la capitale européenne de Bruxelles. La Conférence des imams de France et l'Association européenne pour la défense des minorités ont collaboré à l'organisation de cet événement, qui a attiré un grand nombre de participants. Là, ils ont eu l'incroyable opportunité de s'asseoir ensemble et de discuter avec l'Imam Hassen Chalghoumi de son dernier livre, intitulé "Libérons l'islam de l'islamisme". La conversation a été absolument fascinante. Le livre a été le sujet de discussion de cette réunion. La réunion a été levée après la remise du "Prix pour le dialogue et la paix" par Andy Vermaut, président du Conseil mondial pour la diplomatie publique et le dialogue communautaire. Cette présentation a été très habilement animée par Manel Msalmi, président de l'Association européenne pour la défense des minorités. L'Association européenne pour la défense des minorités est désormais dirigée par Manel Msalmi, qui en assure la présidence.
Laïcité et liberté
Le rôle de la France comme l'un des points de convergence de l'Islam est très important. C'est pourquoi il est un fervent défenseur de la laïcité et de la liberté de religion, et il replace les faits et le contexte dans une juste perspective, tant pour la minorité que pour la majorité. Hassen Chalghoumi : "Les preuves à la fois contre les très rares islamistes qui sont hostiles à la République française et contre les extrémistes qui sont parfois aussi aux commandes des décisions en France. Ces extrémistes sont toujours à la recherche de boucs émissaires en France également, les Juifs étant en tête de leur liste de cibles, mais aussi les Arabes qui ne partagent pas leurs valeurs venant juste après. Les Juifs sont actuellement en tête de cette compétition pour la haine des islamistes. C'est pourquoi je suis convaincu que la religion de l'Islam devrait accorder un rôle plus important aux femmes. Non seulement elles sont les communicatrices les plus efficaces de l'information et de la tolérance au sein de l'Islam, mais elles sont aussi le remède le plus efficace aux pratiques excessivement violentes de l'Islamisme. Je ne prends pas cela à la légère puisque je fais appel à l'histoire, à la culture et aux connaissances que mes parents m'ont transmises. Cependant, je souhaite également promouvoir la récupération de la langue arabe et des réseaux sociaux, qui ne doivent pas continuer à être le domaine exclusif des personnes radicalisées. Vous pouvez lire plus en détail dans mon livre les raisons pour lesquelles je maintiens ce point de vue. Je veux donc contribuer à diffuser la récupération de la langue arabe et des réseaux sociaux, je ne vais pas prendre cette action à la légère."
Opposition à l'antisémitisme
"Hassen Chalghoumi revendique le patriotisme de ses camarades soldats et leur amour pour leur patrie", a déclaré Manel Msalmi. Il est du devoir des musulmans, selon lui, de libérer l'islam des chaînes de l'islamisme, qui a la mainmise sur la religion. Personne d'autre ne peut exercer cette activité à leur place. Parce qu'il est un fervent opposant à l'antisémitisme, son livre irritera également les individus qui ont menacé sa vie et celle de sa famille et l'ont forcé à vivre sous la protection de la police. Après cela, Andy Vermaut a poursuivi en ajoutant : "Hassen Chalghoumi est le président de la Conférence des Imams de France en plus d'être l'imam de la mosquée de Drancy, et je le trouve être une personne très sympathique et charmante. Sa réputation de critique de l'antisémitisme et de l'islamisme est assez importante et il a été la cible de plusieurs fatwas, dont une émise par l'État islamique (Daesh). Parce que l'Imam accorde une grande importance à la fois à la paix et au dialogue ouvert avec ses disciples, nous avons choisi d'offrir la récompense d'aujourd'hui en reconnaissance de ces deux valeurs fondamentales. "
Discussion très importante
Andy Vermaut explique : "Hassen Chalghoumi élève l'islam au-dessus de l'islamisme et au-dessus de tout extrémisme et parce qu'il est un véritable partisan de ce que la religion représente vraiment. Mais qui sommes-nous pour porter un jugement sur les croyances religieuses des autres ? Je pense qu'il est du devoir des musulmans du monde entier de rejeter les individus qui, au sein de leur religion, prônent la violence et le sectarisme et d'émettre une fatwa dénonçant ces comportements afin d'y mettre un terme une fois pour toutes. En ce sens, l'imam a déclenché un problème social important qui alimentera de nombreux débats internes ; la ligne de conduite idéale dans toute religion est de se tenir à l'écart de la violence perpétrée au nom d'une foi. Parce que ce serait un manque de respect envers toutes les religions, quelle que soit la foi utilisée comme explication, personne ne peut jamais utiliser une religion comme justification pour commettre des actes de violence, quelles que soient les circonstances. Cet homme ait un cœur aussi bon et le courage d'avoir une discussion aussi approfondie en France, en Europe et maintenant dans le monde entier. Vous devriez lire son livre. La conclusion selon laquelle nous devons nous débarrasser de l'extrémisme islamique, qui est irrespectueux de l'Islam, afin de préserver une version authentique de l'Islam, est très puissante. Cet homme ait la compassion et le courage de s'engager dans cette discussion très importante. Dans ce contexte, c'est toujours un plaisir supplémentaire de collaborer avec Manel Msalmi, la présidente de l'Association européenne pour les minorités, car elle aussi travaille chaque jour sans relâche pour défendre les idéaux qui sont défendus dans ce livre. Il n'est donc pas surprenant qu'on lui ait demandé de présenter le livre à l'occasion de cet événement aujourd'hui. Je soutiens de tout cœur les efforts et le message de Hassen Chalghoumi en faveur de l'éducation de tous les habitants du monde (islamique)".
Andy Vermaut : "Hassen Chalghoumi, pour autant qu'il présente vraiment une bonne histoire, car le titre "Libérons l'islam de l'islamisme" est quelque chose qu'il veut vraiment voir se réaliser. Cet imam n'a pas froid aux yeux. C'est un débat que tout le monde n'ose pas aborder. Hassen Chalghoumi est un homme de paix qui dit s'inspirer de l'esprit de Gandhi ainsi que des grandes sommités de l'Islam antique comme Averroès. Libérons l'Islam de l'Islamisme s'efforce de rectifier le tir et lutte contre la minorité d'islamistes qui se comportent en ennemis de la République française, ainsi que contre les radicaux qui cherchent depuis longtemps des boucs émissaires en France, Juifs et Arabes confondus. Libérons l'Islam de l'Islamisme s'efforce de rétablir le bilan et combat la minorité d'islamistes qui se comportent comme des ennemis de la République française." Manel Msalmi affirme que l'imam Hassen Chalghoumi croit sans aucun doute que la laïcité protège les religions contre l'extrémisme. Manel Msalmi : "Entre-temps, Hassen Chalghoumi a acquis un profond respect pour les croyances et les pratiques religieuses des autres. L'imam de Drancy est un fervent partisan de l'harmonie et de la collaboration interconfessionnelles, ce que reflètent ses paroles et ses actes. Tout au long de son ouvrage, Hassen Chalghouni propose ses réflexions et ses idées sur un large éventail de sujets."

Music has the power to change the lives of students.CLOVERDALE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- According to reading researcher Matthew Glavach Ph.D., author of Phonics Songs plus with songs by Donny and Marie Osmond, one reason reading scores are so low is that we are missing a fundamental step in the teaching of reading, and it is not phonics.

D/S escapades continue in Lorelei Tiffin’s “Passion Transcended”UNITED STATES, September 23, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- In the second installment of The Southern Dom series by Lorelei Tiffin, readers will follow the continuing relationship of Tommy and Clare Rollins. “Passion Transcende” showcases their marriage and the increasing role Dominance and submission play in their intimate relationship, as well as unexpected events that threaten to ruin everything they’ve built.
In “Passion Transcended”, Tommy craves a more formal BDSM lifestyle, and guides Clare through the changes he wants to make while attempting to maintain the intimacy of their marriage. Just as his plans start to fall into place, an accident occurs that turns everything upside down, fundamentally altering their relationship dynamic, ensuring that their marriage will never be quite the same again. Readers will see what role the BDSM lifestyle plays in their love for one another, as exciting and spicy circumstances arise. Can Tommy’s BDSM dream still become reality? Only time will tell.
While this tale is a sequel to “Passion Ignited”, it also works well as a stand-alone erotic romance story.
“As Baby Boomers continue to retire at record rates, they are finding themselves free to read more than when they were working. Older readers love romance, just like everyone else does, and they want to see themselves in primary roles occasionally, too.” Tiffin says. “My ‘mature character erotic romance’ niche provides these voracious readers with the opportunity to see themselves in successful hero and heroine roles now and then.”
In her words: “I want my readers to know that you don’t have to be 18 or 21 or 25 to find that love of a lifetime. You can find your ‘love for the ages’ at any age and in any place. All you have to do is keep your eyes and heart open, and take the chance when the possibility of love presents itself.”
About the Author
Lorelei Tiffin enjoys writing about deep and abiding love between adults who enjoy life’s physical pleasures in Dominant/submissive relationships. She believes in happy endings even when life’s hardships seem difficult to overcome. Tiffin lives in the American Midwest and has written a number of books including further installments of The Southern Dom series. She has been interviewed on Kate Delaney’s America Tonight radio program and hosted a book signing in her local community shortly after the publication of her second book, “Passion Ignited”.
Poor Information Governance is Cause of Federal Document Leaks and Missing Secret Service Texts, Expert Claims
The leaks of classified documents from the White House, and 'missing' Secret Service text messages, are due to poor Information Governance practices.Misplacing, losing, or stealing classified documents would not be possible with proper Information Governance practices in place.”— Robert Smallwood, Managing Director, Institute for IG
SAN DIEGO, CA, USA, September 22, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The leaks and alleged misappropriation of classified documents from the U.S. federal government, as well as the claim that Secret service text messages surrounding the January 6 uprising in Washington D.C. went missing, are the result of poor information Governance (IG) practices, claims Robert Smallwood, Managing Director of the Institute for Information Governance. Smallwood, a leading expert on IG, is the author of, "Information Governance: Concept, Strategies and Best Practices, 2nd Edition" (Wiley, 2020) and seven more books on IG topics. He stated, "With good Information Governance, all documents and records are tracked and controlled, and there is a 100% audit trail of who accessed which documents, and when. And that includes printing out hard copies. Misplacing, losing, or stealing classified documents would not be possible with proper Information Governance practices in place."
Information Governance, or IG, is an emerging discipline that takes a holistic approach to governing information. IG includes aspects of records management, cybersecurity, privacy, data governance, eDiscovery and FOIA, and more. The goal of IG programs is to minimize information risks and costs, while maximizing information value. "In short, IG is security, control, and optimization of information," Smallwood stated.
IG first entered the mainstream in the 2000-2001 time frame, when the UK National Health Service (NHS) started requiring IG training for all staff who handled patient clinical information. It has now matured and become a more formal discipline, with the advent of ISO 24143: 2022, the new standard for IG, established in May, 2022. That new standard emphasizes information risk mitigation.
"Also, the idea that those Secret Service texts just were 'wiped away' when cell phones were changed or a new system was put in place, is a complete falsehood. Those messages are still around - on a server, on backup tapes - or, heck, doesn't the NSA keep all those messages?" Smallwood asked.
Information Governance may be one of the most crucial issues of our time. Poor IG processes and practices are what led to the ability to misplace or even steal highly classified documents. It is also the cause of the Supreme Court brief leak.
