International Men’s Day (http://www.international-mens-day.com), founded in 1999 by Jerome Teelucksingh, Ph.D. and observed worldwide on November 19th has grown into a pivotal global grassroots movement that was celebrated in over 40 nations in 2010. During the weeks leading up to the worldwide observance of 2010 International Men’s Day, an International Men’s Day Study Module (http://www.international-mens-day.com/Module_intro.php) was created by Jason Thompson, the Historian and Global Promotions Coordinator for International Men’s Day and a member of the International Men’s Day Coordination Committee. Mr. Thompson is also a single Father and published author who works with individuals who have disabilities that include autism spectrum disorders and resides in Australia, In June 2009, Soul Books published Thompson’s groundbreaking book on Men’s issues, Emotionally Dumb: An Overview Of Alexithymia (www.amazon.com), while another book, Poetry Blindness: Alexithymia And Metaphor was published in June 2008 (www.mythopoetry.com). The Psychotherapy Australia Journal (Volume 14, No. 4) published Mr. Thompson’s article, Alexithymia: An Imaginative Approach, in August 2008. And an article co-authored by Thompson and Harriet F. Simons, Ph.D., entitled Affective Deprivation Disorder: Does It Constitute A Relational Disorder? was published in May 2009

“The International Men’s Day Study Module has been created for use in institutions of higher learning – particularly, institutions of higher learning that offer Men’s Studies curricula,” remarked Mr. Thompson.

DRAWING A STRAIGHT LINE TO RECIDIVISM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND RENEWED PROSPERITY IN PHILADELPHIA

Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move.  Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

SEEING INVISIBLE MEN AND BOYS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students.
