Marriage Advice From Relationship Expert Dr. Karen : : : Parenting ...

Provided below is practical marriage advice from relationship expert and licensed marriage and family therapist who since 1993 has been and continues to provide counseling for couples, individuals, and families. This nationally known relationship, marriage, and parenting expert; Dr. Karen Ruskin (that?s me) shares concrete insights and techniques to help the couple relationship dynamic be all that it can be. Whether in my office, on national or local television as a Psychotherapist media guest expert, radio, as a source for print media, or on my blog, my goal is to offer real solutions for real life relationship problems. Do note: whether you are married or not married, either way ? if you are in a committed relationship, the following tips apply.

The key to a healthy, happy, loving, connected, bonded, lasting, and successful marital relationship is to water the plant of marriage each day.

  • Make the time and take the time and do not take your marriage for granted.
  • Make the time and take the time and do not take your spouse for granted.
  • Make the time and take the time and spend quality time with your spouse.
  • Make the time and take the time and get to know your spouse throughout your marriage.
  • Make the time and take the time and pay attention to your spouse.
  • Make the time and take the time and be supportive of your spouse.
  • Make the time and take the time and be a dear friend to your spouse.
  • Make the time and take the time to behave in a manner that is trustworthy, reliable, and responsible.

In many marriages over time the relationship becomes a business partnership. Make it a point to pay attention to the friendship, nurturing, and passionate side of the marriage while balancing the business side of marriage.

It is far too common for many marriages over time to gradually lose the loving, nurturing, passionate interaction they had in the beginning years. It is far too common that the interest in one?s spouse and the many ways in which that is displayed in words and actions becomes void. The caring and giving behaviors far too often declines over time. It is quite often that spouses report they do still love each other, the love is not in question. Yet, they do not feel very loving nor feel they are the recipient of attention and affection the way in which they would have expected marriage to be. One of the top reasons is that the business partnership that occurs in many marital relationships takes over. The business partnership includes taking care of all of the many responsibilities that occurs in marriage (e.g., bills, children).

Having a business partnership in and of itself is normal, and quite necessary. The key is not to lose the passionate side of the marriage and have the business partnership take over. If the marital identity has become ?business?, then the marital identity is just that ? business, thus the ?other? side of the marriage experiences duress. Rather, the intent and focus must be to have a healthy balance of business and pleasure.

A helpful technique from me; Dr. Karen, to you that you can start using today is:

  1. Every morning when you wake up ask yourself:
    1. What is one thing I can do today to help enhance my marriage?
    2. What is one thing I can do today to help my spouse feel loved, valued, appreciated, and special?
  2. Make sure to implement your answer to your questions that very day.
  3. Every night before you go to sleep ask yourself:
    1. What is the one thing I did today to help enhance my marriage?
    2. What did I do today that helped my spouse to feel loved, valued, appreciated, and special?

If you did nothing today in your answers to the aforementioned, take action right now! Do not wait for your spouse to be the one to take ownership of enhancing the marriage ? take action.

The communication pattern between couples is exactly that ? a pattern.

It is the unhealthy communication pattern, that very dynamic that overtime chips away at the couple. Take notice of the role you are playing in this negative pattern. Each day chose to make an active effort to interact in a healthier way, a different way. It takes one person to be the difference that makes the difference to break an old pattern and thus emerge a new communication pattern.

It is my opinion that there are 3 legs of marriage that must be paid attention to if you hope to experience a successful, healthy, and bonded marriage throughout time. It is these 3 legs, the 3 keys that are?imperative.

There are 3 key pieces you must spend effort and energy to attend to if you wish to remain feeling truly connected to your spouse and your spouse connected to you. Most relationships start out feeling joyous and building in connection. As time passes it is not uncommon to feel disconnected from your spouse, it is your job to create connection, ongoing connection. It is your responsibility if you wish to have a healthy marriage.

The plan: play an active role in the ongoing development of having a healthy, happy, loving, and bonded relationship.

The 3 legs of marriage/3 key pieces include:

  1. Emotional Intimacy
  2. Physical Intimacy
  3. Sexual Intimacy

Intertwined within the 3 legs of marriage/the 3 key pieces as discussed above, you must have?active healthy communication?with your spouse.

Intertwined within the 3 legs of marriage (emotional, physical, and sexual intimacy) and the overall umbrella that surrounds these 3 key pieces is: healthy communication! Without healthy communication within each of these 3 key pieces the relationship declines over time.

2 concrete examples of healthy communication includes:

  • Each person feels they have a voice in the relationship and that voice is heard.
  • Speak with your spouse not at your spouse.

With healthy marital communication you open the door each day to a relationship that has the opportunity to grow in each of the 3 important marital areas of intimacy (emotional, physical, sexual).

Do you want to have a healthy marriage? The answer most likely is yes. Here is how:

Think about what a healthy marriage looks like, feels like, and acts like. Then, each day be mindful of acting like you have a healthy marriage, make choices for interaction verbally, physically, and sexually for what having a healthy marriage looks like and what you envision a healthy marriage to be.

If you think and act like you have a healthy marriage, if your spouse thinks and acts like you have a healthy marriage ? what do you think this relationship dynamic has the potential to become? Answer: a healthy marriage.

(AP) ? A crowd of about 60,000 music fans packed Central Park on Saturday night for the Global Citizen Festival, a free concert aimed at calling attention to worldwide poverty and featuring John Legend, Foo Fighters, Neil Young and other performers.

The concert was scheduled around the meeting of the United Nations General Assembly in New York this week. The festival's organizers used a social media campaign as a means of helping educate concert-goers about global issues including child mortality, polluted drinking water, malaria and other ills that confront the world's poor.

Instant View: Reaction to France's 2013 budget

LONDON (Reuters) - President Francois Hollande's Socialist government unveiled steep tax hikes on business and the rich on Friday in a 2013 budget aimed at showing France has the fiscal credentials to remain at the core of the euro zone.

Following are analysts' reaction to the draft approved by the cabinet.


"What raises a few questions for me is how will the conditions arise to reach the 3 percent (deficit-to-GDP ratio) with an optimistic growth forecast."

"The ambitions that were flagged are very audacious ... I have a hard time seeing the story how we're going to find the necessary growth in 2013 and afterwards... So far we have a lot of numbers and not the story."


"Never have households and companies been subjected to such a fiscal shock. It's a very bad choice. More savings should have been made...

"There are no structural measures. Therefore, it's a short term-focused budget with no vision. There's nothing about the competitiveness of companies whereas that should a major priority."


"The important thing is that the deficit target can be achieved even if there might have to be some adjustments in a mini-budget next year."

"The gross debt supply should be lower than this year's and this should be positive for bond markets."


"The government has understood that the increase in the public debt has got to be halted but the way that they are doing it is not the right way. It amounts to strongly increasing the tax burden on companies, their shareholders and executives, in other words those who create added value."

"It will lead to an even bigger loss of competitiveness and so a reduction in long-term growth. That will in turn keep the deficit and debt from being reduced over the long term."

Gates For Home Security And Improvement -

<p>The first impression of as house can be formed by looking at the Gate of a particular house or property. A Gate is as important to a house or a building as are the rooms, doors, windows and ceilings.? Gates provide security to any space where they are installed. Also, they are useful in completing the structure of a house, providing a proper entrance and an exit to the house. Gates are mostly installed in houses that can be directly accessed, without going through stoppages in the form of stairs or galleries. However, Gates could lead either of these. Gates are installed at the entrance of houses, buildings, driveways, pools and even factories.</p>

<p>Gates are not merely means to enclose a particular space; they also mark the boundary of that place and regulate the entry of unwanted elements. Today, there are several types of Gates that people install in their houses. These Gates differ in size, operational mechanism and the material they are made of. A few variations of Gates usually installed today are:


<li>??? Gates differ in sizes, meant for constructions ranging from one?s mansions, bungalows, apartment buildings to farms and parks.
<li>??? Different Gates have different shapes depending on the style of designers and manufacturers. They could alternately have simplistic, modern or classic designs. These days, designers indulge in incorporating art into the designs of Gates.
<li>??? Gates can be installed singularly or in pairs. There are different sizes of Gates available depending on how they are meant to be installed.
<li>??? The Gates can be made of wood, steel, wrought-iron or aluminium. Gates are usually installed according to the style in which the house is built; keeping in mind the d?cor and ambience of the house or concerned space.
<li>??? Gates differ in mechanism they operate on. In other words, Gates can either be sliding Gates, or Swing Gates. This alteration brings in the need to consider other Gate-related specifications like handles, latches, knobs and locks.
<li>??? Gates can be either manually operated, or with the use of electric current. The latter option is helpful in saving time and effort.</ul></p>

<p>Fenceworks, an established Supplier and Contractor of Gates and fences, offers buyers a huge variety of Gates to choose from. This variety is available with them in the form of Aluminium Gates, Steel Gates, Wrought Iron Gates, Aluminium Slat Gates, Colorbond Gates and Glass Gates.

Humboldt State University instructor killed in hit and run; HSU President's statement

Dear Friends,

Yesterday was a sad and tragic day for the Humboldt State University community.

Suzanne Seemann, an instructor in our Department of Geography, was killed by an automobile while she was out on a morning run. Two others who were running with her were critically injured and hospitalized, and one jogger's dog was struck and killed.

This is a terrible loss for our University. On behalf of our entire community, I would like to express our deepest condolences to Suzanne's family, her friends and her students. Our thoughts are with them at this most difficult time, and we are here to support them in any way possible.

Suzanne joined our faculty in 2011, after previously teaching at College of the Redwoods. She held degrees from Princeton, University of Wisconsin and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and was a specialist in oceanic and atmospheric sciences.

Suzanne's colleagues in the Department of Geography have shared with me their keen sorrow at her loss. They describe her as an extraordinarily talented and popular instructor, one who will be sorely missed.

Family members, colleagues and students were being notified throughout the day yesterday. Counseling and other services have been offered, and anyone seeking support may contact the Counseling Center on campus at 826-3236.

Poll Shows Growing Support for Gay Marriage, Civil Unions | WUIS ...

Three out of four Illinois voters now support legal recognition for gay and lesbian couples. That?s according to a new poll (PDF) from the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. Brian Mackey has more:

Charles Leonard, a professor at the institute, says support is edging up. He says he suspects people who might once have opposed civil unions have moved to supporting it, while people who only favored civil unions are now OK with gay marriage.

LEONARD: ?I suspect the civil union bill having passed in Illinois and the sky having not fallen may account for some greater acceptance.?

43.6 percent of voters surveyed ? the biggest group ? say gay or lesbian couples should be allowed to get married. An additional 32 percent favor civil unions. Together that?s 75 percent of the electorate.

Just 20 percent of respondents say there should be no legal recognition of gay and lesbian relationships.

Civil unions have only been legal in Illinois since last summer. Advocates are already pushing for gay marriage. But there are others who want to amend the state constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman.

BlueStacks teams with AMD to optimize Android App Player for Fusion, Radeon chips (video)

BlueStacks teams with AMD to optimize its Android App Player for AMD chips video

AMD has a disproportionately large $6.4 million investment in BlueStacks, and now we're seeing one clear reason why. The two companies have teamed up to create a special version of the BlueStacks App Player that's tuned for AMD's Fusion-based processors and Radeon graphics cards, running Android apps with the full help of the chip desgner's hardware in Windows 7 and 8 PCs. Accordingly, over 500,000 Android apps are invading AMD's new AppZone portal without any needed tweaks of their own, giving the service a much larger catalog than if it had gone with Windows alone. Both companies have a clear incentive to this melding of desktop and mobile: BlueStacks suddenly gets exposure to as many as 100 million AMD-running users, while AMD can tout a giant app catalog that may be preloaded on future PCs using its components. We don't know if the world needs yet another avenue for playing Angry Birds, especially when many AMD-based PCs won't have touchscreens, but the BlueStacks partnership could be a strong lure for new PC buyers who'd like an instant software library.

Obama ahead of Romney in Iowa polls as vote starts

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) ? Republican Mitt Romney is struggling in swing-state Iowa at a perilous point: just as voters here start casting early ballots in the presidential race.

President Barack Obama has a clear lead in Iowa opinion polls, helped by the fact that the state's economy is far more robust than other battleground states. The president's polling edge is so wide it has prompted grumbling among Iowa Republicans who fault Romney for failing to take advantage of Obama's standing, which had been weakened in the four years since Iowa launched his bid for the White House in 2008.

"There still is time to win, but we are in the fourth quarter," said Nick Ryan, a veteran Iowa Republican strategist who was a top adviser to Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum's caucus campaign.

Iowa is hardly the largest prize in the race for 270 Electoral College votes. But the six it offers could be pivotal if the race is close.

Iowans on Thursday can begin voting in person at early voting sites and returning absentee ballots they've requested by mail or in person. Iowa Republicans are mindful that the perception of Romney in deep trouble could sway voters already casting ballots ? or dissuade volunteers from encouraging backers to turn out at the polls.

The state knows Romney and Obama well; both competed here in 2008. And Romney came close to winning its caucuses in January.

"A lot of people I know are excited about Romney," said Susan Geddes, a Republican from Indianola, just south of Des Moines. "And a lot of people I talk to are like me, and just want it over with."

Since locking up the GOP nomination in the spring, Romney has visited the state six times and has poured $8 million into television advertising here. GOP-leaning groups have tried to help, spending $20 million in TV ads criticizing Obama. But Romney hasn't been to the state since Sept. 7, when he made a trip to the Republican-heavy northwest. And he has paid scant attention to the blue-collar voters along Iowa's eastern edge, where unemployment is running higher than in the state overall and where he needs a big turnout to overtake Obama.

The Republican's team insists that he hasn't given up on the state and that he and his running mate, Paul Ryan, plan to spend more time in Iowa in the final weeks of the campaign.

"You're going to see the governor and Paul Ryan talking a lot directly to voters, having more opportunities to do that," campaign spokeswoman Sarah Pompei said.

Aides argue that Romney has built a more sophisticated voter-contact system than Republican John McCain did in 2008, when Obama carried Iowa by 9 percentage points. And although Romney has only 14 staffed state campaign offices, compared with Obama's 67, Republicans say they have made more than 1 million contacts with voters by telephone and in person.

If the polls are right, the GOP ticket has a lot of ground to make up.

A Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist Poll taken last week found Romney trailing Obama by 8 percentage points, a finding that mirrored recent internal polls from Democrats and Republicans alike. The poll also found that only 40 percent had positive feelings about Romney, down from 43 percent in May. Conversely, Obama saw his favorability rating improve to 53 percent from 48 percent over that same period.

Those figures illustrate why Obama's campaign is increasingly confident about its Iowa prospects even as aides say they expect the race to tighten somewhat as undecided voters focus on the election.

Democrats say Obama has benefited from his Iowa strategy of blanketing the state with eight presidential visits ahead of early voting. Obama hoped that his frequent visits, as well as constant appearances by Vice President Joe Biden and first lady Michelle Obama, would help him build a lead over Romney ahead of Election Day, when Republicans traditionally have had an edge.

Obama focused his attention on more populous and politically diverse eastern Iowa. The small and medium-sized cities, many with struggling manufacturing sectors, were friendly territory for Romney in the Iowa caucuses but now show him trailing Obama in internal polling. Obama's three-day, statewide trip in August touched down in less-traveled cities in north- and south-central Iowa. He also made a well-publicized visit to the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines.

The president also has run more than $20 million in ads, including many that characterize Romney and his positions as those of a wealthy, detached former business executive. Obama allies also have spent roughly $3 million in advertising.

Obama aides say Romney's criticism of Obama's handling of the economy has been less effective here than it has been in states such as harder-hit Florida and Nevada. In August, Iowa unemployment was 5.5 percent, up from July but far below the national average of 8.1 percent.

But Obama aides also say Romney hasn't made as much of an effort to build a personal connection with voters in a state where face-to-face campaigning is key, and they say his comment about 47 percent of Americans who don't pay federal income tax has been problematic.

"He doesn't think poor people are his problem," Oskaloosa Democrat Pam Douglas said. "They are his problem if he wants to be president."

Florida Voter Purge Draws New Legal Challenge After State Officials ...

By Michael Peltier
TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Sept 27 (Reuters) - Voter protection groups said on Thursday Florida election officials had reneged on an agreement to ease up on efforts to purge non-U.S. citizens from voter rolls and accused the Republican-led administration of trying to intimidate voters.
Earlier this month, voting groups had dropped a legal challenge to a state purge of voter lists after Florida election officials said they had greatly reduced the number of potentially ineligible voters due to errors on an original list.
But on Wednesday, Department of State officials sent a new list of 198 names to county election supervisors culled from a Department of Homeland Security's database that tracks residency status.
The new purge effort was "not within the spirit of our agreement," said Katherine Culliton-Gonzalez, director of voter protection for Advancement Project, a Washington D.C.-based racial justice advocacy group. "It creates intimidation and confusion and the state knows very well this is going to get some eligible voters."
The move was the latest in a series of complex developments on voter registration in the key battleground state of Florida, the state which famously decided the 2000 election in which George W. Bush beat Democrat Al Gore after a legal battle over Florida's results that went to the Supreme Court.
Advocacy groups say the push to purge the voter rolls of non-citizens is a thinly veiled attempt to disqualify and intimidate Hispanic and African-American voters, as well as other recent immigrants, who tend to vote for Democratic candidates.
Florida is among a handful of Republican-led states that have passed laws in recent years to tighten voter requirements.
"We have a responsibility to ensure Florida's voter rolls are current and accurate," said Chris Cate, a spokesman for the department. "The process to identify potential non-citizens has been a careful, thorough and legally-sound process to uphold the integrity of Florida elections by making sure ineligible voters can't cast a ballot."
Florida Governor Rick Scott has maintained that his only motive is ensuring that the ballots of eligible voters are "not diluted" by ballots cast by non-citizens, convicted felons and others who have not properly registered to vote.
Five voter protection groups and two individual plaintiffs are suing Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner and seeking an injunction against the purge, claiming it violates the National Voter Registration Act, which the groups say bars such purges 90 days before an election.
"To have these efforts come so close to the election is shocking," Culliton-Gonzalez of the Advancement Project said.
"The numbers they are talking about are infinitesimally small. Florida has nearly 11.5 million registered voters, yet they are subjecting legitimate voters to this type of scrutiny."
A Florida federal judge has scheduled a hearing next Monday in the lawsuit to block removal of possibly ineligible voters from registration rolls before the November elections. (Additional reporting by David Adams; Editing by Kevin Gray and Claudia Parsons)

(AP) ? U.S. stock futures slid Wednesday as the European economic crisis devolved into social unrest in the most vulnerable countries, such as Greece and Spain.

Signaling a broader instability in the region, Germany failed to raise sufficient bids for the country's benchmark 10-year bonds Wednesday as a rush for safe havens in a "very volatile market environment" drove average yields down to 1.52 percent.

Dow Jones industrial futures fell 19 points to 13,386. The broader S&P futures gave up 2.7 points to 1,434.50. Nasdaq futures slid 7.5 points to 2,795.75.

Developments in Europe overshadowed what is expected to be more evidence Wednesday of a U.S. housing market on the rebound.

The Commerce Department releases its new home sales report at 10 a.m. Eastern, and economists believe that sales likely rose again in August.

Sales of previously occupied homes jumped in August to the highest level since May 2010. Builder confidence is at a six-year high and construction of single-family homes rose last month to the fastest annual rate in more than two years. However, even with the gains, home sales and construction remain well below what could be considered healthy levels.

And the fear is that a broader recession in Europe could lead to a stall in whatever economic recovery is occurring in the U.S., where the housing market has been a major drag for five years.

Tens of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets in Athens and Madrid, where they clashed with riot police ahead of a new round of spending cuts and tax hikes.

Police in Athens used tear gas and pepper spray during violent protests that broke out near the country's parliament. Protesters also set fire to trees in the National Gardens. About 50,000 people marched in central Athens on Wednesday, kicking off a general strike against new austerity measures.

The Bank of Spain warned Wednesday that the country is in a deep recession, one day after protests in Madrid led to at dozens of arrests. At least 64 people were injured.

In the aftermath of the chaos that erupted Tuesday, the central bank of Spain said country's economy continues to shrink "significantly." The main IBEX index in Madrid tumbled 2.6 percent.

Poland said Wednesday that its jobless rate had risen to 12.4 percent by the end of August, compared with 12.3 percent in July, further signs that the economic distress is spreading.

Germany's DAX fell 1.4 percent lower to 7,322 while the CAC-40 in France dipped 1.9 percent to 3,447. The FTSE 100 index of leading British shares fell 1 percent to 5,803.

Baby boomer nutrition: Health power to the (plant) people | Mind ...

Mind Your Body TV Episode 42 with Sharon Palmer, R. D.

If registered dietician and food and nutrition journalist Sharon Palmer could be granted a couple of wishes, one would be that we all ?eat more whole plants.? The other would be that we read her terrific new book, ?The Plant-Powered Diet, The Lifelong Eating Plan for Achieving Optimal Health, Beginning Today.?

At 412 super-informative pages, Palmer?s book reminds us in accurate detail of the dangers of eating too much meat. Meat consumption has doubled between 1909 and 2007. Red meat represents 58 percent of the meat we consume, she says.

To begin to cut your appetite for it, consider the environmental issues that include ?antibiotic resistance, caused by overuse of antibiotics in farm animals, to toxic manure lagoons that pollute local waters and spread foodborne pathogens.?

Then consider these.

Top 11 reasons to cut back on (or cut out) meat

It?s ok to ?veg out? on these healthy food choices.

1) It can hurt your heart: People who eat red meat are more likely to have high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels.

2) It ups your risk of Type 2 diabetes: Enough said.

3) It may pump up inflammation: That can promote a strong of chronic diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer?s disease, Palmer writes.

4) It raises your risk of metabolic syndrome: The term refers to a collection of unhealthy factors that include a large waist circumference, high triglyceride levels, lowHDLor ?good cholesterol,? high blood sugar and high blood pressure.

5) It may boost your toxin load: Cooking and processing some meats produces dangerous, carcinogenic compounds. Many toxins are also stored in the fat of animals.

6) It can promote antibiotic resistance: This is thanks to overuse of antibiotics in farm animals, as above.

7) It may escalate your risk of cancer (especially colorectal).

8) It can add pounds: Meats are higher in calories and fat than most whole plant foods.

9) It may cut your lifespan.

10) It magnifies your carbon foot print.

Eat more of these

These are your friends: vegetables, cooked beans and peas, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds. You can add them into your diet slowly, and soon, you won?t miss that meat. Bon appetit!

    Poor customer service is exactly what Brits deserve? | Business ...

    So says leading customer feedback experts, Rapide, speaking out after receiving the shocking results of its latest research. Rapide has revealed that a staggering 91 per cent of people in the UK don?t always complain about bad service and yet 51 per cent don?t expect the service to improve if we don?t speak up.

    The worst offenders in this nation of ?can?t be bothereds? are men. The boys win hands-down with a quarter of those who don?t always speak up saying it?s because they can?t be bothered to complain. And nearly half of us in the UK as a whole say we don?t try and pull businesses up by their boot strings as we feel there is no point ? businesses simply don?t care.

    Rest assured we do still have a few grumpy Brits who are prepared to speak-up. You?ll find plenty of moaning coming from the South-East with results revealing 28 per cent of people here always or often complain. This compares to just 15 per cent ? less than one in six ? saying they often or always feedback after a poor service in both the East Midlands and Northern Ireland.

    There is certainly a great British culture of non-complaining ? and more than half of those questioned agree that if we won?t speak up we?re getting the service we deserve. So what will persuade us to stop mumbling into our cuppas and start telling businesses what we think? An instant response, according to these recent revelations.

    Nigel Shanahan, Managing Director at Rapide, says: ?The results are quite startling ? businesses are giving the impression they don?t care and consumers aren?t speaking up when there?s a problem ? resulting in a nation of people who think they receive poor customer service but won?t do a thing about it.

    ?Consumers want to know they have been heard and they want a response. We can all understand the frustration of sending a long winded email complaining to be completely ignored ? feeling like you?ve been listened to makes all the difference!?

    The Honorable Ron Kirk to Join OFA-Florida for Roundtable Discussion on Education at Broward College

    FORT LAUDERDALE ? Monday, Sept. 24, The Honorable Ron Kirk will join OFA-Florida at Broward College in downtown Fort Lauderdale for a roundtable discussion on education. (Broward College Board Room, #1208, at 111 East Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale)

    Kirk will be joined by local educators and students who will talk about the importance of a skilled workforce to keep America?s students competitive and President Obama?s efforts to make college more affordable.

    President Obama has a vision to create an economy built to last, where those who are responsible, work hard, and play by the rules can be given a fair shot at success, and this starts with education. Since coming to office, President Obama has been a staunch advocate for making education an economic necessity for our nation?s young leaders.

    For Florida students, President Obama?s policies mean broader opportunities: new college tax credits for 717,000 Florida students, larger Pell Grant scholarships for 608,000 students, and more affordable loans for 453,000 hardworking students taking responsibility for their education.

    From granting waivers on No Child Left Behind to creating the Race to the Top initiative, which Florida was crowned a winner for improving student outcomes by closing the achievement gap, President Obama knows providing a quality education will help this country achieve a full recovery from the middle-out and the bottom-up.

    The President?s vision is far different from Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan?s plan for education. Under the Romney-Ryan plan, Floridians would see Pell Grant scholarships cut and funding for K-12 and special education eliminated, leading to increased class sizes and fewer teachers.

    The Romney-Ryan solution for students who are worried about college costs are to ?shop around? and ?borrow money from your parents.? Their policies would mean fewer Pell Grants, higher student loan interest rates, and the elimination of critical investments needed to ensure America?s students can compete with the rest of the world and secure jobs of the future.
