Don’t like long, convoluted post titles? Don’t shoot the messenger: Did I conceive, gestate, give birth to, nurture and L.A.U.N.C.H. these “Great Ideas” ? (Started mid-Dec., 2018; Publ. “WYSIWYGG” March 15, 2019).

Post Title:Don’t like long, convoluted post titles? Don’t shoot the messenger: Did I conceive, gestate, give birth to, nurture and L.A.U.N.C.H. these “Great Ideas” ? (Started mid-Dec., 2018; Publ. “WYSIWYGG” March 15, 2019). (Short-link ending “-9md.”)

(Started mid-Dec. 2018, worked on periodically in January and February, 2019, and parts split off into another post, “Simply Parent” still also in draft.  Published as-is (WYSIWYGG) March 15, 2019 and just under 12,000 words including the WYSIWYGG intro.  Note:  This post has many images.  If your viewing device doesn’t allow manual expansion by some form of a finger-swipe, a double-click on image may have the same effect.  Not really recommended for viewing on cell-phone or other small screens).

“WYSIWYGG”  — “What You See (so far) Is What You’re Gonna Get.”

Its sections are far from seamless, but each section on its own makes points worth pondering with the usual links to think (read) some more. Within the section, Show-and-Tell alternates with conversational mode, my responses, on each topic. For me, “conversational mode” means longer sentences which is how I think.

The post ends a bit abruptly.  Like I said, WYSIWYGG.

This post most directly connects to this topic’s subject matter through a parent education non-profit business run out of Cuyahoga County, Ohio (with obvious AFCC influence and personnel) which continues to post its “NREPP” credential.

I begin showing how NREPP has been shut down or frozen for replacement by a new acronym, EBPRC, which (to locate) requires showing several more archeological/archival digs, most residing somewhere under the umbrella of the United States Department of Health and Human Services.  The basis of pushing parent education comes, generally, from social science theories related to welfare (administered ℅ HHS/ACF/OFA) and mental health prevention and services (incl. but not limited to under HHS/SAMHSA), so a rapid expansion, that is “LAUNCH,”comes under that very large conceptual tent under SAMHSA — all of which connects to departmental budget requests…. some of which I link to.  I unearthed “LAUNCH” looking up the NREPP credentials of the parent education course.

For an AFCC-conference sponsor, that is, the owner/s of “Center for Divorce Education” to have figured out where to tap into HHS-budgeted funding streams about to go national (or having already done so) should by now be no surprise — but it should also be shown.  Incorporating a reference to “LAUNCH,” once I understood it in the SAMHSA context in what was intended to be more focused on the “Family-Court-Fixers” who ignore another part of HHS administering welfare services (i.e., primarily the OFA) was probably too much payload for one post.

This post achieved my WYSIWYGG status officially March 12, 2019, after I admitted I’ve run out of time to keep my head into this material and wrangle the formatting  into a better place. Having so categorized it, I’m going to also publish it this day.  Well (as you can see), Friday, March 15.

WHY PUBLISHING “As-is”:  As of today, it’s “evident” (speaking of “things “evidence-based”) personally that I am moving into another season of self-defense of housing and privacy in the form of litigation, as occurred June 2014 — Jan. 2016.  I do not know how long it will last, or whether it’ll be the intended “Pyrrhic Victory” (look it up)** if I win, or a rout, if I do not, closure from further dealings of this kind in a way which does not “kick the can down the curb” further.  I have reached out (that’s been part of the delay on this post also) to qualified sources (both legal, and dealing with/aware of elder abuse situations), which requires also ongoing time and focus.


**Phrases.uk.org but “JSTOR Daily” says maybe we’re reading it wrong, and anyhow most of that battle was told from the Roman point of view (to save face).  (How “Pyrrhic Victory became a “Go-To” Metaphor Feb. 7, 2019 by Farah Mohammed, and referring to  how long Brexit is taking, Bloomberg’s use of that metaphor and, at the end of the day, “there’s still a continent of people to govern.”  Apparently Pyhrrus was a despot, and his battles didn’t better the people’s condition.  Certainly could be said of those I’ve been battling (not winning much) over the past decades, that is, if the banners (causes) they were initiated under were ever stated in good faith, i.e., sincere and genuine.))

To comment on this, I’ll bet, common situation: Ever heard of the cycles of domestic violence (escalate, explode, plateau until the next incident) within personal relationships?  They do not go away with separation automatically.  After one leaves abuse, depending on the level of other invested parties wanting to engage, target, continue to control, and/or stalk a separating, domestic-violence-protection-seeking spouse or intimate partner with children in the family courts,  the cycle becomes wider in scope, maybe longer in time, but identifiable “seasons” continue to show up with cumulative impact.

To outsiders and most of the public, the separation is assumed to be complete and violence and coercion with potential to go imminently violent (life- and health-threatening, sudden) at any point to have subsided 100% if it’s less overtly dramatic.** It may not have.  Abusers may obtain sufficient influence to engage in a relay race; they get time-off, or just (as seems to have happened here) drop out of the race, while others carry the “baton” of destruction, but the target does not, turning life into a basic marathon — in order to stay, ALMOST in place. When it doe continue and expand, lawyers and their mental health counterparts taking court referrals want their piece of any visible resource, too, regularly, until that source is dry, or about to run dry, at which point they’ll seek to jump/dump to other associates (good to maintain those business networks, trade favors, etc….).  My case in point THIS time…

**In my experience, not so — the coercion and pressure did not subside and has not subsided; it is just less “in your face“! We’re already multi-generational over just my ONE decision years ago to get legal intervention, and insist on as many proper legal boundaries as I could at any point in time, ever since.  I sent this message clearly, and did not make exceptions for my immediate family members who showed (early on) they were not going to even respect the initial DVRO.  Until just a few months ago, everything I did was within close driving distance of at least a few of those individuals.  Putting some geographic space inbetween, while not the complete solution was a major accomplishment, and I had to do it without advance notice to almost anyone, and like a fugitive.

In reviewing my own post-separation timeline, which is getting longer on the back end, and frighteningly shorter looking forward if the practice continues, the cycle seems to be about every two years; whether in family court or now, as it happens, probate. I’d like to see ANYONE sustain a living with 15-20 years of that (it’s pushing 20 years for me  after about 10 years of the more overt, direct, assault-and-battery, garden-variety serious domestic violence  that was the real substance of my own “marriage,” as I know it is and was for many.

As these things tend to go, now again I’m in dealing with both PTSD and “Pissed-Off” modes, neither of which is conducive to best writing, or help-seeking. No matter how righteous my cause for maintaining distance, separation, and privacy, the timing of (very recent development) pending open litigation back in California to maintain it could not be worse, or should I say, could not have been targeted bettter to prevent that distance, separation, and privacy long enough to generate new lines of work greater than even the recently greatly (by about two-thirds) reduced living expenses.  See my sporadic comments on this blog, or Twitter (@LetUsGetHonest) about a recent interstate re-location into better (and less expensive) living circumstances with real hope for a personally sustainable future, away from the Gold-Digging, excuse me, Golden State. //LGH 3/12/2019.

Published:  March 15, 2019.  Below this line, most content written between Dec. 2018, Jan. and Feb. 2019; some in early March.

Again, the question is: “Don’t like long, convoluted post titles? Don’t shoot the messenger: Did I conceive, gestate, give birth to, nurture and L.A.U.N.C.H. these “Great Ideas” ? (Started mid-Dec., 2018; Publ. “WYSIWYGG” March 15, 2019).

No I did not, but if you want a list of who did, look through this blog’s Table of Contents, follow me on Twitter and watch the hashtags used, or survey the landscape yourself. Meanwhile, for now, it’s long, convoluted post titles to tag several elements of each longstanding convoluted situation I’m taking a core sample of for that post…  (How do you think I keep my own posts straight after nine years and almost 800 of them — by total recall and three-word reminders?)

A nearby post (mid-December, I did not know whether I would publish first this one or that one.  On Dec. 25, I published “that one”):

Checking out just one foot-noted claim on the home page of just one of the (entities/web pages) led me down another rabbit hole (with new ones being dug) at SAMHSA and involving Mental Health – State Prevention Grants (“MH-SPG” in budget justifications shorthand), with the point of reference cited as proof of being an “Evidence-Based Practice” having just been moved in 2018, by SAMHSA from “NREPP” to simply EBPR (or similar name) …

on which website I got to hunt and dig for ANY reference to the program being pushed (and having been developed) by the private owner/s of “Family Works, Inc.” at 92 Van Ness Avenue, Ashland, Oregon — with no corresponding “Inc.” showing as currently registered in Oregon to do business under that name at the state department’s database recording such things…. “Go figure…”  {{My post-publication follow-up back in Ohio showed there was one in Ohio** — but the entity’s address is still shown as Oregon. So are we to presume that there is no revenue exchange (commerce) taking place IN Oregon still? And if I, with NO comparable source of ongoing revenue from any public source for my private enjoyment, take time to follow-up with a BLOG post stating this, why hasn’t the other entity’s owner (it turns out to be one person on the record as I recall) taken a few minutes to update company web pages referencing a government entity which no longer exists, the NREPP, and re-directing readers to the updated evidence?}}   (**I’ve now added links and images to the OHIO corporate filings for Family Works, Inc., to my “Assembling the Pieces” post (intro), as I was the one saying I couldn’t find its incorporation…]  

But it was “illuminating” to find out under what rationale such programs are encouraged —  Mental/Behavioral Health — and how rarely they are independently evaluated.  An ever-expanding, increasingly centralized Mental Health Archipelago as a Public Service, i.e., as U.S. Federal Government (Executive Branch-administered) policy has become a Personal Private Bonanza for those who got in on it early.

WHY I MENTIONED “L.A.U.N.C.H.” IN THIS CONTEXT:

(This extended section is in a different background color to distinguish from the rest of the post.  Its complexity comes from tangling with the US Government’s HHS “OpDiv” called “SAMHSA” (which came into being 1992) and its budget justifications, funding streams, and “data repositories” as in “NREPP” (National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices), essentially a website/electronic library, which only came into being 1997).

I used the word “L.A.U.N.C.H.” because it’s an acronym, however you’ll find “Project LAUNCH” (without the extra periods) in SAMHSA’s FY2012 Budget Appropriations Committees Justifications as planned to be continued ($25M) this year, then submerged under MH-SPGs and “launched” this construct nationwide, total grants $90M.  (Click on that link and use the search function for 10 occurrences:  Here’s an image from the page dedicated to it (not including the chart at top with the $$ amounts):

  • | * | * |  [IMAGE TO BE INSERTED HERE.  Maybe (but links already provided)]

Got your Acronyms straight yet? The above link’s main domain name on its url is simply “SAMHSA.gov.”

The url to an article about the suspension of the NREPP domain name alone has four acronyms ( in reverse order, NIH, NLM, NCBI | https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6013894/), + the final portion of the url, “PMC,” each of which part of (HHS) has a history, as does the article itself, which holds an opinion on the suspension of NREPP (in 2018) and replacement of it by, it seems, an EBPRC…

Good Grief. Talk about a major, over-arching infrastructure in HHS!!

In the next home-made, that is blogger’s table, not one quoted from another website,** the first five rows (LAUNCH, NREPP, EBRC, PMC®) are not parts of HHS by division, but (as best I can understand it as a layperson), its PROJECTS.  Below these first five rows,  I’ve listed rows for NCBI, NLM, NIH and SAMHSA) To better distinguish a project which may have a web page also named (in part) after it from an official subdivision of HHS, see its webpages!   (This page, “Appendix B” is dated 2015.  (i.e., pre-Trump but still up!) Websites change, so I recommend just searching for HHS Organizational Chart, Operational Divisions (OpDivs) or similar term.  Program Offices are underneath “OpDivs” in the nomenclature, last I looked.  SAMHSA is at the same heirarchical level as ACF and NIH; there are eleven (11) OpDivs listed currently.  {{**If such a table were made prominently available throughout HHS pages, or its OpDiv pages, I wouldn’t need to construct one just to keep it straight, and to be able to talk about the programs versus the parts of HHS!}}

LAUNCH, as in SAMHSA’s
“Project LAUNCH”
Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children’s Health” (2008ff)
NREPP National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (suspended in 2018, has a certain history since 1997)
EBPRC Evidence-Based Practices Resources Center (replaces NREPP?)
PMC® PubMedCentral® = a digital archive launched in 2000(see nearby images “PMC Overview” & “Disclaimer”; managed by NLM’s NCBI.  (There is also a PMC International)
NCBI National Center on Biotechnology Information
NLM National Libraries of Medicine (under NIH)
NIH National Institutes of Health
SAMHSA Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (under HHS) started in 1992?

(Click image to enlarge) ##1 of 3: HHS 11 Operating Divisions (“OpDivs”) shown on the right column. These OpDivs are listed (as are Program Offices) as optional filters (select) or fields to display (column heads for search results to check that category off or on)  at “TAGGS.HHS.Gov” (Advanced search). ACF (top), NIH and SAMHSA (near the bottom) are all at the same organizational level.

##2 of 3: HHS Agencies & Offices, showing the first OpDiv (they’re listed alphabetically) “ACF” with its logo. ACF administers Social Security Act (“Welfare”) funds, as I understand it; it has smaller “Program Offices” underneath).

##3 of 3: HHS OpDivs NIH and SAMHSA described briefly from HHS website.

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, ….

This “PMC” article  (same url here as shown immediately above the table of acronyms), Suspension of the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices: the importance of adhering to the evidence” also talks about 1997, 2007 and 2015 standards, and expresses disagreement with the suspension  (4-image gallery below contains the citation reference and Abstract).

The author Sharon G. Hennessy (“SGH”) discloses that she is the former collaborator and widow of the person who developed the NREPP:  “SGH is the former collaborator and widow of the late Dr. Kevin Hennessy, the developer of the 2007 version of NREPP.”  Footnotes to this article may be helpful; I noticed one of them refers to “ActiveParenting.com”.  Also, looking for “Dr. Kevin Hennessy, NREPP, 2007” I found him quoted in a full page of a Sept/Oct. 2008 SAMHSA Newsletter (found on a wordpress website).  Just a reminder:  “evidence” means different things to different people” and “

NREPP is a voluntary, self- nominating system, and developers choose to present their programs for review

Therefore I have to assume that the developer/s of “ParentingWisely®” also submitted their program for review, rather than had grassroots (or other NIH employees) knocking on their doors to submit their program.  If unaware of this, the implication otherwise is that SAMHSA sought them out as obviously appropriate for the listing.  Apparently, SAMSHA did not; it’s SELF-NOMINATING process.

This (published online 2011) Brief Review by both Hennessy Ph.D.s reiterates that the proprietary (i.e., trademarked) programs show as lower quality in research, but more prepared for dissemination, and more aimed at younger people (especially) youth.  “A Review of Mental Health Interventions in SAMHSA’s [NREPP]” (published on Psychiatry Online.  I think it’s well-written and informative).

Welcome to my blog.

You are on the second from the top** post of the page which displays all posts. 

**Seven posts are permanently (until I change my mind…) like this one, categorized “Sticky” = “Stuck to the Top.”

You probably got here indirectly from the Main Page “FamilyCourtMatters.org” Sidebar “Current Posts”

or having been given the case-sensitive short-link “https://wp.me/psBXH8Ly” from social media (or me).

Let’s talk.


FamilyCourt Matters.org, this WordPress blog, has been available on-line now over nine years and as of today (Dec. 8, 2018) has 785 published posts and 45 pages. By posts, you’ll see quickly, I do not mean a few thousand words and quoting an expert, referencing a problem, and maybe including a link or two.  These posts have (I feel confident to say) as much detail and background links as the average mainstream media journalism reporting on even one aspect of similar issues. The overall purpose of the blog differs from the purpose of mainstream media or even many blogs focused on similar topics.  

I am calling out to concerned people to educate themselves— as I had to — on the structure and operations of the family courts which ties directly into other major topics — the structure and and operation of governments (plural) + the structure and operation of private corporations, especially in the nonprofit (tax-exempt) charitable, advocacy or “philanthropic” sector which has become the extra arm of government, not the altruistic, neutral mediator between government and citizens as it is commonly being characterized.

I keep blogging to name names and report developments (in this field) from an “outsider/consumer” point of view, while continuing to assert there are other places to look for more productive grounds from which to argue for or against specific agenda within and around the family courts


From June 2015 to Jan 2016, I took about one and a half years off from publishing posts, not off researching or writing, to handle urgent personal situations relating to the aftermath of years in the family courts.  I had to focus on other types of writing and explored other ways of presenting this information off-blog, such as into pdf formats and page-length (8X11″) content. 

In January 2018 I restructured the blog to have two static home pages (one introduction which typing in “FamilyCourtMatters.org” accesses, and which, along with the top right sidebar “Current Posts” widget, links to this one, where all posts — sticky ones first —  display), like most blogs, the most recent on top.  

In early 2018 I also worked to update and extend the table of contents pages.  The blog doesn’t generate them automatically, and I feel the Table of Contents with my typically long post titles is good for an overview and browsing material for the field.  

Even if the posts aren’t even read, the titles show I’m talking from a different perspective and about certain dynamically censored topics.  Because such key topics have been censored, for some years, now, I documented and continue to publicize (post, Tweet, talk about and name) organizations, professionals, and blogs who have historical refused to report on, a.k.a., basically attempted to censor public discussion of THE basic infrastructures of either the courts, or the business involving the courts as referral mechanisms to private interests (i.e., in conflict-of-interest style) while simultaneously claiming a basis for nationwide reform.

Refusing to discuss the key elements of the basic infrastructures of the family courts also unnaturally deprives the public (at least the public relying on such sources and not their own investigations or analysis outside the usual population divides: religion, gender, race (of course!), and politics). At least for private organizations and individuals running or associated with them to engage in such coverups is legal, but immoral; individuals, including myself and others like me, who get fed up with coverups must go dig out the information them/ourselves.

Summer/Fall 2018, I relocated out of state but continued posting periodically and re-engaging in social media more and within a few months signed a lease.  I am back here again, working to make the blog more approachable and navigating (finding) its various Tables of Contents easier both from the home page and from Twitter.  Meanwhile, I continue to research – follow leads, investigate, put information together from various sources — and write as much as possible and engage more on social media — while working with new (cellphone) technology, an aging laptop and how to match capacity to handle software updates with device life expectancies, etc. including getting one to share data with the other without either one shutting down.  

EXPANDING SPHERES OF ATTENTION: This past season I have begun looking more at parallels between US and other countries’ historic reforms of the family law system in the late 1900s and early 2000s.  How these laws were passed, reigning paradigms (which differs by country) and how professionals organized (usually) at academic or private society (association) levels cross-collaborate, and in which journals.

{{INTRODUCTORY MATERIAL, about 1,000 words, MOVED Jan. 6, 2019: PLEASE READ IT then return to this post.  Link to return to this post is provided at the bottom of that page.. }}

Welcome to My Blog (Extended Intro moved Jan. 6, 2019 from May 2, 2018, Top Sticky Post on the Blog to this Page).
(That page is under 2,500 words {original 1K + transition text} and has a generated, case-sensitive short-link ending “-9qr”)

Let’s talk, but…

(Connect through Comments, or on Twitter, where I am @LetUsGetHonest)

.. If we are going to converse, let’s start with some solid, identifiable ground, identifiable facts in a common context.  The largest one I find applies to so many is accounting by governments of their own expenditures (not just budgets, but also income-producing assets controlled), and the same goes for the private sector working in partnership with it to constantly correct course, solve problems, consult, and (etc.).

As harsh as it may sound, the common ground for conversation on-line about systems of this scope should not be experiences.  For moral, social support, empathy, or friendships, yes, probably.  But for solutions?  Not in the public sphere.  SOMEONE besides those running “the show” must talk about how that show is being run in terms with some “Lowest Common Denominators” that do not trigger constant debates to the point no conclusions are reached.  WHY:  WHILE the public is battling verbally on-line based on (personal experiences and social bonding) in this manner, the systems complained about continue operating, and generally, expanding.

There HAS to be a different type of language and focus of attention.  I believe there is…I’ve been looking at it for years now…

I PAY ATTENTION TO GOVERNMENTAL  (AND PRIVATE) FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND I LOOK FOR TAX RETURNS OF NONPROFITS AND READ THOSE TOO.  PATTERNS ALWAYS SURFACE, AND THESE PATTERNS OF ACCOUNTABILITY OR (MORE OFTEN, LACK OF IT) SHOW CHARACTER — ORGANIZATIONAL, AND OF THE PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THE ORGANIZATIONS.  IT HELPS CUT THROUGH THE [word deleted].

Cont’d from my Aug. 5 post…An Alternate Viewpt. on the Anti-Smoking Campaign and its Syndicated Backers …1998 Tobacco Litigation MSA followed by the 2007 (Opinion) USDOJ RICO [started 8/7, published 8/19/17 + updated since]

with 2 comments

Title, presently: Cont’d from my Aug. 5 post…An Alternate Viewpt. on the Anti-Smoking Campaign and its Syndicated Backers …1998 Tobacco Litigation MSA followed by the 2007 (Opinion) USDOJ RICO [started 8/7/2017] with case-sensitive short-link ending “-7pV”

At first the material was so vast, consequential, and filled with so many branches of related information, I simply called this one “Continued from the last post.” “Last” meaning “most recent,” of course.

Last post, title abbreviated: An Alternate Viewpoint on the Anti-Smoking / Smoking Causes Cancer! Campaign and its Syndicated Backers ….** and 1998 MSA Tobacco litigation. (shortlink ends “-7na”)


Mary Lasker with Albert D. Lasker. His third wife (her second husband; first had owned an art gallery, marriage didn’t last long). There appears to be something of an age difference… They married 1940; he retired (selling? Lord & Thomas) in 1942, which sale funded their foundation ($45M). L&T became Foote, Cone & Belding. By 1952 he was dead from cancer, which diagnosis (this article says) Mary kept from him…. (image of the Laskers from CBCRadio.com article, below).

After a week researching, compiling and writing the previous post, I gained a better understanding at least of the role of Mary Lasker (1900-1994), again, who, being Wife #3, outlived her wealthy husband Albert D. Lasker (1880-1952), owner of the dominating-the-field Lord & Thomas advertising agency in the early 1900s,** by some 42 years and who, with her powerful connections and relatives, made her will and influence known to a series of Presidents, Congresses, and NIH directors, as well as with some of them and/or other associates (people of influence in her social circle as a wealthy heiress of Mr. Lasker) running or re-directing a series of influential organizations central to public policy today, including at least a few associations mentioned as “Intervenors” in the USDOJ lawsuit against “big tobacco,” as shown here: [I re-post the same image and additional from the USDOJ Civil Actions lawsuit (Amended Opinion 2007)  listing the intervenor associations images much further below, with quote from its Introduction.  This gives an idea of the vast size of the proceedings. (My 12/16/2016 page has link to the entire opinion, and more)]

This image comes up again, further down in today’s (8/15/2017) post…USA Plaintiff, Tobacco-Free Kids, American~ Cancer,Heart,Lung, NonSmokersRights+NAATPN, *INTERVENORS* v. PhillipMorrisUSA et al CivilActn 99-2496(GK) [RICO] (Opin2007) (¼ images; cover page

Notice “BHthechange” =/= “BtheChange.  The BH stands for “Behavioral Health.”

“BtheChange.org.UK” focuses on behavioral modification, peer mentoring for offenders.  The phrase seems over-used, but here’s the log.  This seems unrelated, I’m just referencing it because of the similar sound-bite:

(Logo from SaferStronger.com apparently uploaded July 2017? it seems to be an EU charity, (guess the UK hasn’t finished its BREXIT yet, the location seems to be in the UK). Also found at BtheChange.org.uk.


POST OVERVIEW: — I NOW HAVE A SEQUEL TO THIS POST READY TO GO; SOME OF ITS MATERIAL OCCURS NEXT, BUT MAY BE RE-ARRANGED.  THIS RECURRING SITUATION COMES UP FREQUENTLY BECAUSE I AM INVESTIGATING (WRITING ALMOST AS QUICKLY AS I DISCOVER THE MATERIAL) NETWORKED ORGANIZATIONS AND THEIR WEBSITE CLAIMS AND CONSIDERING WHERE THESE FIT INTO, FOR EXAMPLE, THE HISTORY OF THE RAPID PROLIFERATION OF NIH INSTITUTES AND CENTERS, AND FUNDING FOR THE SAME.

So, after several days’ work on this one, I’m going to publish it at 11,100 words, but expect to move some sections around, including to or from the next post in the sequence.  Currently the content here may be more or less directly tied into post title.  Taken as a whole, however, I am continuing to bring the topics into a “systems view.”
