Wishing all our friends, families, and colleagues the best in 2016-2017!  

During the holiday season and always wishing for peace on earth, inclusion and acceptance of our differences, and futures that are even more than we can envision or hope for in 2016 and beyond. In the US, the federal leadership administration will be transitioning from President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama to an expected substantial change to Republican Donald Trump, Eastern European Melania Trump, his "Apprentice" family Ivanka and Eric, and likely a billionaire class of wealth at the White House. Energy reform in the form of wind and solar may be increased despite opposition to the climate change regulatory agenda with the Environmental Protection Agency also prior designated as a lead in chemical, biological and radiological terrorism. May there be peace on earth and good will toward all!  Julie Ann Racino, American Society for Public Administration, 2016-2017

An Update in 2018 on the Eve of Nuclear Disarmament, "Bilateral Meeting" by USA-North Korea

     In the US, we have witnessed a failure to keep to US Presidential commitments signed by President Barack Obama which is critical for US integrity in the global world. Though, the new Obamacare of the Affordable Care Act of 2010 resisted a Republican attempt to repeal and replace; with the US Centers for Medicaid and Medicare remaining significant.  

     We wish our new US President (4 year terms, 2017-2021) the best in his efforts, and expressed dismay on his positions on the environment ("a hoax") and his early departure this weekend from the G-7 Summit (e.g., Ministers from the UK, Germany, Japan, Italy) in Quebec, Canada.

     We thank the new Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, son of Pierre Trudeau, for his support of gender equality and women's empowerment, and appreciate support of Nations to work with our state governments to assure a healthy environment for our children, families and communities.

      We were pleased that Ivanka Trump, the daughter of the US President, shared the Olympic stand with the Korean hosts (and the South Korean-North Korean handshake which followed at the DMZ), and mark that day as one of international import. Best wishes to Inclusion Network in 2018 and to the "US Direct Support Workforces" who "federally" are with the new Trump Administration.
