They’re getting hands on media and message training and the 100 member group is also meeting with national legislators. Purdue agriculture economics senior Jackson Troxel from LaPorte County has a special opportunity Wednesday morning.“I actually have the opportunity to introduce Tom Vilsack, the Secretary of Agriculture at a breakfast tomorrow, so that is a very awesome opportunity that I have and just the opportunity to meet with him. Yesterday we sat down with media people for media training on how to interact with legislators, these policy makers that have a huge influence on our industry.”Troxel told HAT in the media session the young agriculturalists learned that preparedness will be the key to their success.“We do need to be prepared to tell our story no matter when we’re called on. We need to know about our specific sectors of the industry and we need to know when to talk and when not to talk, and if we don’t know enough about an issue we need to be honest about it and maybe send whoever is asking about the issue to someone who can provide the knowledge.”Another member of the Indiana group, which numbers a hand full, is the reigning Miss Indiana State Fair, Mariah Huff from Jackson County. She agreed with Troxel that there is a great deal of enthusiasm about telling agriculture’s story.“I think it’s just a part of knowing that you’re something so much bigger than yourself and so much bigger than your local community,” she explained. “Agriculture affects everyone and everyone’s daily life whether they realize it or not. And that’s our hope as young individuals and young agriculturalists. We hope to promote the industry that is so impactful on our daily lives.”She said they are indeed enthusiastic about meeting with legislators “because we are young individuals and we do have a say because we are going to be the future of agriculture and the future of our nation.”Huff is a junior majoring in agriculture education and she is glad to be learning more about ag education funding problems in other states and the need to better communicate that funding is available here in Indiana.Both students are part of Agriculture Future of America and you can hear more in the HAT interviews:Jackson Troxel and Mariah Huff from DC SHARE National Ag Day a Capital Event for College Ag Students

The Family In America April 2016Family First Comment: Interesting. “…in recent decades, some progressives have asserted that children suffer relatively little when they lose a parent (usually their father) through divorce. Since they were the ones who pushed permissive divorce laws through the state legislatures, progressives are clearly defending themselves with this de minimis view of the effects of parental divorce on children. The progressive line, however, is fast losing credibility as evidence accumulates indicating that parental divorce actually hurts children more severely than does parental death.” And “Divorce-court judges may think they are protecting children if they award custody to the more nurturing parent (typically the mother); however, the authors of this study conclude that “maternal and paternal separation were almost equally associated with psychopathology.”Everyone recognizes that children suffer when they lose a parent through death. But in recent decades, some progressives have asserted that children suffer relatively little when they lose a parent (usually their father) through divorce. Since they were the ones who pushed permissive divorce laws through the state legislatures, progressives are clearly defending themselves with this de minimis view of the effects of parental divorce on children. The progressive line, however, is fast losing credibility as evidence accumulates indicating that parental divorce actually hurts children more severely than does parental death. The latest piece of evidence comes in the findings of a study recently completed by researchers from Virginia Commonwealth University and from the University of Tokyo, a study concluding that parental separation is a decidedly stronger predictor of various forms of mental illness than is parental death.To compare the psychological effects of parental death with those of parental separation, the researchers parse data collected between 1993 and 1998 from 2,605 male twins from the Virginia population-based twin registry, looking for statistical linkages between parental loss (any loss, death, and separation) during childhood and subsequent lifetime risk for seven common psychiatric and substance-use disorders. The seven disorders of interest to the researchers are Major Depression, General Anxiety Disorder, Phobia, Panic Disorder, Alcohol Dependence, Drug Abuse, and Drug Dependence. Painstakingly assessing their data, the authors of the new study see an unmistakable pattern emerging: “Parental separation has stronger and wider effects on mental illness than death.” Specifically, the researchers conclude that parental separation “significantly predicted risk for all disorders except phobia (O[dds]R[atio]s ranged between 1.45 and 2.03).” Looking closer at their data, the researchers conclude that “parental separation had the strongest impacts on risk for depression and drug abuse/dependence.” “By contrast [with the effects of parental separation],” the researchers remark, “parental death was marginally significantly associated with only risk for phobia and alcohol dependence (both of p < 0.05).”Having shown that “parental separation was significantly associated with almost all disorders,” the researchers move on to a secondary analysis in which “the impacts of separation from mother and father were compared.” Divorce-court judges may think they are protecting children if they award custody to the more nurturing parent (typically the mother); however, the authors of this study conclude that “maternal and paternal separation were almost equally associated with psychopathology.”The researchers explain that “the impact of separation from mother and father on risk for offspring psychopathology was almost equal except [for] phobia and alcohol dependence. For these two [problems], maternal separation was a stronger predictor than [was] paternal separation.” Surveying the data for other disorders, the researchers conclude that “paternal separation was significantly associated with M[ajor]D[epression] and drug abuse/dependence while maternal separation was associated with drug dependence.”READ MORE: http://familyinamerica.org/journals/winter-2016/parental-divorceworse-parental-death/#.VwwoJv5f2Ul read more
