(Rev. 09/24/2017 (format/appearnce changes, adding TOC entries since March 2017)

For 2017 Link to this post for this year2017 Table of Contents Continues Themes from 2016. See TOC for: 2017 thru March; 2016; Sept. 2012-2014 and See Also More Info Below. (case-sensitive, WordPress-generated shortlink-ends 5qZ, second half of post title added Sept. 2017).

The (short, so far) Table for 2017 (with the last three of 2016 for continuity of a certain theme) is at the bottom of this page. It will at any point in time be only as updated as I have taken time to make it, which I will be working on now.

Meanwhile, the “8 most recent posts” is helpful for 2017, or if you’re handy with the scroll or page-down functions (not recommended on cell phone) go to the top of the blog, scroll down below the sticky posts (with abbreviated lead-ins) and most other posts also have abbreviated lead-ins (i.e., a “Read More….” link) realizing that the lower down = earlier posts.


(There are other “Read More…” links within the post…)

 

As the title indicates, the Tables of Contents (“TOC”) are in three sections:  <> 2017 through March, <> 2016 (all of it), and <>Sept., 2012 – June, 2014.  Post title also signals that besides the tables of contents, this post has <> more info below.  

The next three links pull up those three TOC for better browsing in a form whereby any post displayed on that table can be reached by clicking on its name after clicking on the link to bring up the pdf associated with it.

Table of Contents Last Three of 2016 – March 21, 2017, Click here to view, click on any post title to go to that post. (pdf format, showing in 8X11 page installments).

Table of Contents, 2016, all (several pages, 52 posts), Click on post title to access post. (pdf format, showing in 8X11 page installments).

Table of Contents, June 29, 2014 reverse chrono to Sept. 24, 2012 (37 pages!), same viewing instructions (pdf format, showing in 8X11 page installments).  This being so much longer, has different sections. . . The table of contents (therein) is on pp. 4-20.

On this post, I also show:

  • The last three posts of 2016 in a short table, and in a continuous table (vs. 8×11″ paginated and with headers and footers) TOC 2017 (which I’ll be working on, to add posts after March 21, 2017.  Current updates to this continuous table are through July 10, 2017 — but this doesn’t include the related pdfs or images already posted, which updates are separate processes to produce.)
  • Preview images of the various TOC’s pages, and
  • Links to the two other posts (for the 2016 all and for the 201-2014 tables) where these were originally (i.e., this would display them also in continuous table format vs. paginated and on a pdf)— which also no doubt have more blogging substance as well.
  • Other narrative/descriptive substance on themes, topics or organizations of ongoing interest to me as a public-interest, investigative blogger.  Currently I have published more than 720 posts since 2009, and periodically add pages (about 40 published so far) related to the over-arching themes. Some pages will show on the sidebar.


Blog followers will by now (later 2017) be used to both image and pdf format in supplying documentations.  The following bullets are simply explaining that images (screenprints of existing documents, i.e., the TOC I made) below reflect pdfs readers may click on, find every post title is an active link which leads directly to that post.  I provided screenprints, images, of the documents with those active links for an easier display or browsing without clicking on anything.  If that format is still uncomfortable, keep scrolling down to where the TOC is shown in table format and (for the other years) click on the posts for those years, which will also (as I recall) have the tables in such a format.  Valuable material in addition to the actual list (table) of posts remains on the 2016 post.

  • I included below on this post some images of the actual TOC 2016 (minus the extra narratives), which copied into a word-processing document, formatted, then “printed to pdf.” Printing to pdf and loading that pdf onto the blog (accessible by a single click on the link I provide) produces a document in which every post in that table can be accessed by clicking on its name.  On every row, the post’s underlined title is an active link to the post, whether viewed here, or viewed on the uploaded pdf (8.5X11) format
    • This sounds more complex than it is.  Anyhow, after those images and the “access” link comes the Table for 2017, towards the end of this (so far, short) post.
  • As before, the right sidebar will display titles and links to only the last few posts.  I have it set to only eight.  The blog as a whole contains about 670 over 720 posts.

(Some of the pdfs here are repetitive because I pulled the links to the top of this post, however I’m leaving them in nearby the images.)


Here’s a link to the one-page pdf of TOC 2017 in 8.5X11 pdf form.  It includes the last three posts from 2016 too, and an two images (one for each page) of what it will look like:

Click for the 2017 TOC + last 3 of 2016 (with active links). It's just 1 page.

Click for the 2017 TOC + last 3 of 2016 (post titles = active, links). It’s just 1 page and current through Feb. 6 only. UPDATED: TOC through March 21, adds p.2, here. Or see partial table (updated) right on the post, right below here for Posts Feb 9- March 21, 2017)…(After adding new posts to tables on this blog post, I updated, and printed to pdf, added an image for “Page 2” here as you can see, in 8X11.5 format)

  • EXCERPT pp2-8 ONLY (12-10-2016 DRAFT4Feedbk! Dec 6, 2015,VEnglund – Public Still Clueless After All These Years? (BISC-MI+DV Cartel+PRWORA, 1995-2015 | Notice the Narratives but EXAMINE <==pdf from this page.  paragraphs below express my frustration.  This blog also has a section and points to previous posts on the “Family Justice Center” (now “Alliance for Hope International”) situation, in general — or, I should say, specifically (see above link):
  • This “Public Still Clueless After All These Years?”  also illustrates how tax returns often tell a very different story than press releases, or even complaints about any organization in journal form.  The financial information is simply of a different type and nature — but it STILL shows organization ethcis and character.Based on that evidence, I say my up-front summaries are accurate, as is that the public is in 2017 as in 2015, “Still Clueless After All These Years” (at least about this particular public/private partnership’s basic model and based on that model, purposes).You can see why such shady “slosh-money-through” behavior would need a REALLY benevolent purpose, cause and association to distract from the financial realities throughout.  Probably it’s distracted many of the volunteers and some employees too, but at SOME point in time, that “stuff” will become public.  Then what?  Well, “we’ve already invested too much in the program and built up the infrastructure in city after city, what about all our employees and the clients we’re servicing?” |||  My point exactly — part of the business plan is to accelerate expansion BEFORE the public gets a serious clue what’s coming down the road at them, and at their expense, ongoing….Hardly the “democratic” and (much less the republican) form of government…Similar deal with the Bain/Bridgespan model — and Harvard University (or at least Harvard Business School // Review) agrees.  As to Public/Private Partnerships and Accelerating Social Change in the name of public welfare — the Corporation for National Service/Social Innovation Fund (I posted on it recently, and earlier in 2016) agrees too.  I guess there’s just nothing to be said about distributing representative government throughout unaccountable nonprofit networks which hookup with government agencies or entities, and then take it global.

For 2016 ONLY with valuable material before/after:

It (also) is now accessible in two formats — on-line, or a printed pdf (paginated to fit 8.5X11 format), as explained below (pdf completed added post-publication here).

I closed out 2016 with an average of one post a week (52 posts total). 

Link to TOC 2016 & that post’s revised title:  {1}Table of Contents 2016 (52 posts Jan. 23 – Dec. 13, 2016) with {2} Intro on First 5 Years Fund(ing), incl. but not limited to Tobacco Lawsuit Settlement Payouts + Warren Buffett’s “Ounce of Prevention Fund”(IL) and {3} Appendix of Tags from some Critical-to-Understand Posts

Link to that TOC 2016 (only, not preface and appendix material) in 8X11.5 word processing format (as a pdf, with post links active): Click to read full-sized==> familycourtmatters-wordpress-com-toc-2016-52-posts-5pp-1-9-2017 (images from it will be shown below also, with the link again).

  • Introductions come first, so the order of material within the post obviously would be {2} Intro, {1} Table, {3} Appendix.  The most important part of post title is that it contains a Table of Contents.  So there you have it regarding minor conflicts of labeling systems (title vs. post itself).  Nothing new about that, so long as the context where each one applies is understood. But, can you keep straight conflicts between an organization’s self-disclosure on the websites and what the financials, fling history, and close organizational “friends” all reveal about the same entity, or as it often goes, “entities”?
  • I looked at one tax return today, representing several entities at one location, and found that the “disregarded entities” held positives assets controlled by ONE Form 990-filer (i.e., public charity) totaling over $60 million dollars among three LLCs.  Meanwhile they were declaring negative cash flow and on the same return a reference to a NEGATIVE $67M balance in their financial statements — the same return.  This entity had a board of only three officers — a married couple, and one other.  The entity was formed this century.  Collectively, however, the same leadership has many pots on the stove, so to speak.
  • Labeling, presentation, and categorization in accounting is apparently everything. Develop the ability to keep the background “ops” in mind (or at least know where to find them again if exact details not remembered) while reading the Public Relations Promotions (whether found on organization website, on a government website regarding the organization it is (like as not) partnering with, or even on — as I discovered again within the last three days — a well-known research university’s website.

For 6/2014 and earlier, back to 9/2012 ==>: My Posts, Just the List (June 29, 2014..back to Sept. 24, 2012. From Jan. 23, 2016 forward now available @ “Table of Contents 2016 ONLY” Post)

==> ==> My “New, Improved!” (perhaps easier to browse) Table of Posts in paginated, 8.5X11 viewing format, [37pp in all]completed Wed. January 11, 2017 from the above post (only) link.  Click on the pdf, and know that all links on this pdf except a very few which may be an image of someone else’s website, are indeed active.  The main part looks similar to the images below; but this being so much longer, has different sections. Otherwise, I’ll add it to the 2014 post, and may publicize in its own post soon.   . . . The table of contents (therein) is on pp. 4-20.

I didn’t count, but the table has 143 rows.  Give or take the header and a few spares, this represents about 140 posts from 2012-2014.  In mid-2012, my understanding of certain financial concepts (like CAFRs) AND of the history of psychology as related to the development of the family courts, accelerated and deepened, helping connect the financial to the psychological to the business sectors — to taxes.  Browsing the titles might just be a good overview.

Images from this format — you will notice the same (date, filename, blog/username, page #) header on every page, and a footer (yellow-highlit) containing Notice to readers.  It’s self-explanatory.  Here are a few images (no active links in the images, only the pdf above…):

[notes about image position refer to its laptop view; mobile or tablet views may re-arrange them.  They are labeled regardless of position.]


About THOSE 50 LARGEST FOUNDATIONS:

As of now, I’d already researched about every other one on the (2009) list, and posted on several. If you read this blog frequently, you’d recognize several names in the context of their operations to change public institutions.  These are privately controlled non-profit foundations controlling assets numbered in the billions of US$.  I had warned people about this in mid-2013 already.

And they are influencing social and justice policies, not to mention education and immigration also.

There are specialized magazines for such foundations, as “the good guys” or as investment platforms — but mainstream media (print, on-line, TV) otherwise just does not report** on the sector as a risk to legal representation of individuals in the United States of America, which it absolutely is.

Not to mention sponsoring organizations who often do not comply with state OR federal registration, filing, and incorporation laws here.

**I did — in part after I discovered some of the largest ones (Ford, Annie E. Casey, at points an Open Society foundation) pushing “responsible fatherhood” programs. And after I found one even partnering with the NYS Unified Court System to push certain types of programming favorable to a certain association I also blog on, consistently.

Many of these relate to diverting process outside the court room and into private (or, public/private) behavioral modification purposes, rather than emphasizing direct criminal prosecution/sentencing, such diversions being based on the need for system-wide change because of its racism.  Annie E. Casey, MacArthur working tag-team on this with particular focus on youth, and particularly youth in foster care or child welfare systems. Entire states are chosen to test solutions for the stated problems (Models for Change, JDAI, etc.)

So, my endnote on May 6, 2013 post “Private Equity Takes a New Tack” (also seen in the starred image, above left, from “List of Selected Posts with Endnotes”) referenced these entities.  That “tack” referred to buying of hard-asset infrastructure in, say, sub-Saharan Africa (a dam in Namibia, I think it was).

Whenever private entities control public resources, it’s going to affect any local population.

Endnote 12, continued from one on my Post “Private Equity Taking a New Tack” with “Largest Foundations” annotated image. Page 32 from my 37-page TOC 2012-2014, reformatted.<=all of it

Similar things are happening here, within America, but we somehow don’t seem to realize it, as having been coached not to think about who owns which real estate and assets, but “we’re all in this together” and in terms of social services.  What about the roads, public buildings, dams, levees, schools, universities (public ones I mean) as to their property (real estate); what about access to “the grid” whether it’s electric, and/or communications?  Who owns, and who charges access fees?

I just learned recently through noticing a certain visitor to the blog, about “CENIC.org” and the Internet2, i.e., that high-speed infrastructure as opposed to the communications network available to most individual taxpayers as individuals (that is, apart from their work or educational lives).  I realize the need for this when it comes to the military and national safety, but still — how many of us understand or even think casually about the entities involved and how this works and is financed? Well, see that website for more information.  It’s one of the best-designed websites I’ve seen in a long time, and deals with the statewide internet access for California.

This pdf=/= the CENIC website image, but an annotated RRF filing of the organization showing sources of gov’t revenue.  Check it out….

For any post dated before Sept. 24, 2012  — use this blog’s Archives function (top right) and pick a month from the drop-down menu, once it’s showing, click on any date that shows a hyperlink (underlined).   Unfortunately that doesn’t provide a preview of post titles.  Or, if you have keywords, or a post title, simply do a basic web search — it may come up still! I still sometimes will be looking for more information on a specific grant, or grantee, or topic, and find my own posts come up in the search results.

Here are images of 2016 posts — to click on an active link, you may use the “pdf” link provided with them (which has all 5 pages) or go to the 2016 link above, which has more information before and after.  The images preview what the pdf will look like; only the pdf has active links.

See header info in images and the related pdf:  Although in this post I am not emphasizing my personal name, this IS my work and the pdf and images in footer declare the copyright and grant permission to quote ONLY if the quote also acknowledges (blog name, username, active link to post being quoted AND (because sometimes I do revise after publishing, or move materials) to the 3 TOC posts above. Where WordPress TOU (Terms of Use) may conflict with my declaration of rights, including © to myself for my writing, the strict interpretation of “All Rights Reserved” (as described) applies.  If there are any questions, it’s my understanding that the company providing WordPress (Automattic, Inc.) is a California company, and I currently also reside in the state, so California laws would apply.  [fn1]

[fn1] I would appreciate in general being referred to as “Let’s Get Honest” rather than my given name, for reasons relating to my personal circumstances locally (i.e., for safety reasons) and to keep the focus on the subject matter of the blog — not anecdotal accounts of divorce and custody proceedings, which to anyone but parties to the case and eyewitnesses, are effectively hearsay to the general reader.  But, I have poured my time and life into this material because there was a major gap in reporting which left a major gap in credibility of the reporting which was taking place on the matter of custody of children post-separation-from abuse and this whole field of the family courts as disrupting family relationships.  And credit should be given where credit is due.  My perspective and voice represents my own and seems to be unique among those reporting on even some of the court-connected corporations.  Do not plaigiarize or quote sections of this without appropriate acknowledgement AND attached links.  (Click full-sized pdf, read NOTICE above).
