Advocate Nikola Published in PRAVDIKO on Ukraine Rebellion

Young Voices Advocate Nikola Petrovski was published by PRAVDIKO writing about about protests in Ukraine.

PRAVDIKO (in Macedonian the word “PRAVDA” means “JUSTICE”) promotes the rights and obligations of the citizens in different areas, as well as presenting the possibilities of action in the Republic of Macedonia. Their motto is: “You have a right to know!” It’s a new website but became so popular for very short time. Their Facebook page has about 20,000 “likes” right now.

Advocate Matthew Published in Communities Digital News on Air Traffic Control

Advocate Matthew LaCorte was published in Communities Digital News about America’s outdated air traffic control system.

How do you lower ticket prices, decrease delays, increased safety, reduce congestion, benefit the environment, and increase exports? Simple: privatize air-traffic control.

The last twenty years have seen tremendous technological advances. Americans’ everyday lives have been drastically altered by the influx of innovation in medicine, transportation, communications, and more. Yet, these great leaps have oddly not penetrated America’s air traffic control towers. Today, planes in U.S. airspace are directed by the same system that was developed in the 1960s. It comes as little surprise that the U.S. has fallen behind other countries in safety, speed, fuel efficiency, and reliability of air travel. The American traveler would greatly benefit from entering the 21st century of aviation technology by depoliticizing the air-traffic control system.

Advocate Yaël Published in Washington Examiner on NSA

Young Voices Advocate Yaël Ossowski was published by the Washington Examiner about how President Ronald Reagan may have paved the way for the National Security Agency’s snooping.

American uproar over revelations of mass government spying has provoked a significant revision of the actions of U.S. spy agencies across the board.

While ire has been focused at the Obama and Bush administrations, such snooping was given the green light by none other than former President Reagan more than 30 years ago.
