We have a correction to make from our previous News from the Network. Due to our unfamiliarity with a lot of computer and internet terminology (and just plain ignorance about what was going on), we referred to the broadcasts by Dr. Norman G. Kurland, president of CESJ, as "podcasts." No, they are broadcasts, not podcasts. This has caused some confusion, as podcasts are posted on the internet and can be listened to at any time, while a broadcast just goes out, and must be re-broadcast if it is to be heard again. Still, the audience being reached via these broadcasts is rather phenomenal, as you will agree:
It can be listened via iTunes (on Mac computers and devices) - bottom link, or via Windows MediaPlayer - the upper link. This broadcast is intended for listeners mainly in Northern America. (It will not be available for Europe, Africa, Asia). The broadcast can be listened by up to 1000 listeners at this time. [Please don't ask us what all that means.}
the Global Justice Movement as well as running his full time web design business, OZ Media. A member of the Whitecourt Chamber of Commerce, Dan has over 20 years experience working in the creative arts, including 8 years as a graphic designer, photographer and videographer in Toronto. He founded, designed and publishes the Community Advisor, a monthly magazine mailed out to every household and business in Whitecourt and the surrounding area. Dan currently specializes in web design and writing about issues that the mainstream media misses or misrepresents. Although he has studied the "social credit" proposals of Major Douglas in depth, Dan has stated, "I've looked at many change models and always come back to the fact that CESJ has designed one that is second to none." He is looking forward to reviving the CESJ newsletter, and making it available both as a print and e-publication.
• Rev. Dr. Robert Brantley has accepted a position on the CESJ Board of Counselors. Bob, a founding member of CESJ, put in many years as a member of the Board of Directors, and has been a regular participant at the rallies at the Federal Reserve, where he served as Master of Ceremonies.

• The corrected manuscript of Ten Battles That Every Catholic Should Know has been submitted. A new introduction is being drafted. Even though CESJ is an interfaith group, many members and supporters might find the book interesting.
• Here’s the usual announcement
about the Amazon Smile program,
albeit moved to the bottom of the page so you don’t get tired of seeing
it. To participate in the Amazon Smile
program for CESJ, go to https://smile.amazon.com/. Next, sign in to your account. (If you don’t have an account with Amazon,
you can create one by clicking on the tiny little link below the “Sign in using
our secure server” button.) Once you
have signed into your account, you need to select CESJ as your charity — and
you have to be careful to do it exactly this way: in the
space provided for “Or select your own charitable organization” type “Center for Economic and Social Justice
Arlington.” If you type anything
else, you will either get no results or more than you want to sift
through. Once you’ve typed (or copied
and pasted) “Center for Economic and
Social Justice Arlington” into the space provided, hit “Select” — and you
will be taken to the Amazon shopping site, all ready to go.
