24124141A/userimages/connectingcommunity/icons/2017-%20spring/zoom-logo.pngNEW Remote Classroom & Meeting App

Phillips is moving away from AdobeConnect as our remote classroom application to a new product called Zoom.  Among the new features available, Zoom allows students to have accounts to facilitate group collaboration on projects or one on one communication with the professors from any location with internet access. 

 

If you are in one of our distance learning classes, it is not necessary to have an account to participate in the class.  Your professor will email you a meeting invitation that will include the link to the class. All you need to do is click on the link to launch the class. 

 

If you are interested in a free account, you can go to our Zoom website ptstulsa.zoom.us. Click on the Signup Free link and use your @student.ptstulsa.edu email account. You will get a free basic account that provides the ability to collaborate with fellow students and faculty.

 

Contact Garry Cook with Zoom related questions.

Strangers No More: Immigration and the Challenges of Integration in North America and Western Europe

By Richard Alba and Nancy Foner

“Strangers No More is the first book to compare immigrant integration across key Western countries. Focusing on low-status newcomers and their children, it examines how they are making their way in four critical European countries—France, Germany, Great Britain, and the Netherlands—and, across the Atlantic, in the United States and Canada. This systematic, data-rich comparison reveals their progress and the barriers they face in an array of institutions—from labor markets and neighborhoods to educational and political systems—and considers the controversial questions of religion, race, identity, and intermarriage.

 

Richard Alba and Nancy Foner shed new light on questions at the heart of concerns about immigration. They analyze why immigrant religion is a more significant divide in Western Europe than in the United States, where race is a more severe obstacle. They look at why, despite fears in Europe about the rise of immigrant ghettoes, residential segregation is much less of a problem for immigrant minorities there than in the United States. They explore why everywhere, growing economic inequality and the proliferation of precarious, low-wage jobs pose dilemmas for the second generation. They also evaluate perspectives often proposed to explain the success of immigrant integration in certain countries, including nationally specific models, the political economy, and the histories of Canada and the United States as settler societies.

 

Strangers No More delves into issues of pivotal importance for the present and future of Western societies, where immigrants and their children form ever-larger shares of the population.”

241242110SS/userimages/connectingcommunity/icons/2017-%20spring/jake%20simmons.jpgBlack History Month: Joseph Jacob Simmons Jr

Joseph Jacob Simmons, Jr. (1901-1981) was  also known as “Jake” by his Muskogee, Oklahoma friends. His father, a Creek Light horseman used the allotment system to build a large ranch in a town now called Haskell, Oklahoma. Jake grew up learning the value of hard work by herding cattle and working to maintain the ranch. When he was 10 years old he told his father, “I want to be an oil man.” Fortunately, in 1920 oil was discovered on his allotment of land. Simmons entered the oil business and became arguably one of the most successful African Americans in the history of the oil industry. Jake became an oil tycoon who was once listed in Forbes Fortune 400.

 

Simmons was the first African American to be appointed to the National Petroleum Council in 1969. He brokered oil leases in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, Kansas, and African continent. He branched out into real estate, insurance, and the cattle business.

 

He was a member and loyal supporter of the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME). He was also active in the civil rights movement and served as president of the Oklahoma National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. He fought for the rights of blacks in the courts. Jake was an integral proponent in the building of Black Wall Street, Tulsa Ok and its re-building from the 1921 bombing after mass.

More information may be found in Greenberg, J. (1991) Staking a Claim: Jake Simmons, Jr. and the Making of an African-American Oil Dynasty.
