Best-selling author John Bradshaw remembered for changing the conversation about addiction - CultureMap Houston

Monday, March 27, 2017

The Houston-born counselor and Emmy-nominated television personality developed a national following for his frank discussion about substance abuse and his difficult childhood in which he was abandoned by an alcoholic father. His powerful motivational skills were first noticed while he was speaking at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. He rose to prominence in the 1970s and '80s as the host of the PBS series, Bradshaw On: The Family. He was later nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Host for his series Bradshaw On: Homecoming.  He authored seven books, including three New York Times best sellers, including Homecoming: Reclaiming and Championing Your Inner Child, Healing the Shame That Binds You and Creating Love. His books have sold over 12.5 million copies and are published in 42 different languages.  Bradshaw, who is widely credited with popularizing the terms "inner child" and "dysfunctional family," often said “recovery begins with embracing our pain and taking the risk to share it with others.”  Bradshaw studied for the Roman Catholic priesthood, earning a B.A. degree in Sacred Theology and an M.A. degree in philosophy from the University of Toronto in 1963. Six years later he returned to Houston, doing graduate work in psychology and religion at Rice University, which led to his career as a counselor and ...

Dear AIA: Please Acknowledge Us When We're Alive - CityLab

Monday, March 06, 2017

But that happiness lasted only for a moment. Why couldn’t he be recognized when he was alive and practicing?A lot of black architects felt angry. Being publicly abandoned by our professional organization was too much to bear, especially given that, at the firm level, we are nearly always alone. Scroll down through any architectural firms’ website, go under the “Leadership” tab, and count the number of minorities you see. Most of the “diversity” you’ll see is in the administration and/or information technology departments.At networking events in New York, I’ll usually spot two or three black people. Being the friendly sort, I’ll approach them and spark a conversation. When I ask what they do, I usually hear the same things. Contractor. Consultant. Freelancer. All these career paths are respectable, but where are the licensed black architects? Remember when Flipper Purify was refused a promotion in Jungle Fever, and was put in an awkward position to resign? I can’t help but think about that scene when I hear other people of color’s stories about why the field really wasn’t for them.Maybe you think I’m being dramatic. But every year, the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) issues a report called “NCARB By The Numbers.” Here, it breaks down all of the “important” statistics of the licensure process.(NCARB)See that yellow sliver of a bar that denotes “Black or African-American”? It hasn’t changed in the last eight years. That’s not drama; that’s hard numbers.The AIA has a section on “Equity, Diversity, Inclusion” on its website, full of safe phrases about fair treatment and celebrating differences. That’s not enough. Just as conservatism in our art protects the interests of those who are already established in the field and does not push us forward, such milquetoast words don’t change anything.Similar criticisms about diversity have been leveled against the technology industry, but it now has great programs, such as Black Girls Code and Code 2040, that promote engineering and tech career pathways in school-age kids. Most adults, let alone children, don’t know what we architects do as a profession. I urge the AIA to use its platform to be more involved with the education, employment, mentorship, licensure, and advancement of underrepresented people—in particular, black people. I would like to not be the token designer at every firm I work for.The future isn’t totally bleak. In October 2016, I attended the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) conference. Throughout that weekend, tears kept streaming down my face. Tears of joy. Tears of relief. Tears of hope. I was an emotional wreck when I saw a row of dignified black men decorated with medals of excellence. Most of them have been practicing for over thirty years. Seeing them collectively discuss their ideas and visions to improve the built environment was nothing short of inspiring.I intend to have a long relationship with architecture and will happily pay my dues...

Fayetteville officials eye lower Bragg Boulevard for redevelopment - Fayetteville Observer

Monday, February 20, 2017

The property in the city's cross hairs includes the former V-Point Super Market and Paye Funeral Home - buildings that flooded during Hurricane Matthew and have been abandoned. The city has made offers for those properties, City Manager Doug Hewett said, but they have not been accepted.The property also incudes two strip clubs - Sparky's and Bottoms Up - as well as the Flores' Unique Image Auto Body at 720 Bragg Blvd., which is behind the boarded-up V-Point store.Iliana Flores said city officials a few years ago had considered buying the shop, but they changed their minds."We were thinking we were OK," she said. "They are not going to push us out."The city also is evaluating whether to make offers to property owners at the corner of Bragg Boulevard and West Rowan Street - across from the Value Place hotel - as well as a few tracts near Hillsboro Street behind the former Vick's Drive-In that was demolished for the new bridge.All told, the area includes more than 75 parcels and 25 acres.Murchison Road and Bragg Boulevard are some of the city's oldest corridors, where many of the buildings closer to downtown are aging and could use a fresh look - and a new, higher-taxpaying use, officials say.At a work session earlier this month, Hewett told the council members if the city bought the land where the two strip clubs are, "you would essentially have a clean corridor under your control from the MLK all the way past the multimodal center."Hewett was referring to the city's $12.6 million bus transit center that is scheduled to open on Robeson Street in May.The council has not made any decisions yet, and a plan on how to acquire the land and determine how to redevelop it could come in April.But the city has budgeted nearly $700,000, Hewett said, to acquire more land near the new bridge.Hewett's concept is not without precedent: After the city bought and razed a shuttered Days Inn on a hill overlooking the Airborne & Special Operations Museum, the city in 2012 sold the land to developer Ralph Huff to build the Parkview condominiums and town homes. The construction has put the land back on the tax books and brought more residents downtown.Some possibilities have been discussed, including putting a senior citizens center on the newly acquired land, more green space and commercial and residential development.The lower end of Murchison Road was the city's origin...
