Another Town Is Possible: Community Wealth Building in the Basque Country

‘Nature Has Warned Us’

The biggest employer in the town is Ulma and Fagor, two parts of the Mondragon Corporation Group, the world’s largest and most renowned co-operative which – as the name suggests – is based in nearby Mondragon, one town over from Oñati. Mondragon too has adapted rapidly to the crisis, becoming a major mask supplier to the Spanish Government almost overnight, with a contract for 340 million masks per year. They have also started manufacturing automatic respirators for ICU units, protective visors for health service staff and solutions for pathogen-free sanitation of spaces and surfaces.

“We need to generate a national industry of sanitary protection equipment,” Iker Alberdi, general manager of Onnera, a Mondragon co-operative based in Corboba in the south of Spain which is leading its mask production, said in El Pais. Manufacturing for the health service within Spain would ensure that PPE was “adjusted to the conditions and regulation of the national market”.

At the same time, Mondragon Corporation is itself reliant on the international market. The production lines used for mask production at Onnera were built at its Chinese subsidiary in record-quick time, arriving in Spain in late April. Mondragon workers outside of Spain are not co-operative members. This is a pragmatic co-operativism.

How Your Heart Influences What You Perceive and Fear

We consider the brain the very center of who we are and what we do: ruler of our senses, master of our movements; generator of thought, keeper of memory. But the brain is also rooted in a body, and the connection between the two goes both ways. If certain internal receptors indicate hunger, for instance, we’re driven to eat; if they indicate cold, we dress more warmly.

However, decades of research have also shown that those sensations do much more than alert the brain to the body’s immediate concerns and needs. As the heart, lungs, gut and other organs transmit information to the brain, they affect how we perceive and interact with our environment in surprisingly profound ways. Recent studies of the heart in particular have given scientists new insights into the role that the body’s most basic processes play in defining our experience of the world.

In the late 19th century, the psychologist William James and the physician Carl Lange proposed that emotional states are the brain’s perception of certain bodily changes in response to a stimulus — that a pounding heart or shallow breathing gives rise to emotions like fear or anger rather than vice versa. Researchers have since found many examples of physiological arousal leading to emotional arousal, but they wanted to delve deeper into that link.

The heartbeat provided the perfect means to do so.

Springfield is by far the largest city in the district (150,000) with more than 20% of the total population. Morse is the mayor of the neighboring city of Holyoke, which has about 40,000 people

I’m endorsing Mayor Morse because I need a congressman who I can connect with; one who is willing to build a relationship with legislators at the local level to help inform decision making at the Federal level,” Hurst said in a prepared statement released by the Morse campaign. “For the last seven years that I have served on the City Council and even in my current role as president, I have yet to have a dialogue with Congressman Neal about the issues impacting the constituents that we both serve. The residents that I speak to regularly are frustrated with perennial politicians who run on maintaining the status quo that continues to marginalize and exclude impoverished communities of color from receiving their fair share of resources.”

“The days of rubber- stamping endorsements at the behest of gatekeepers from a previous generation are over,” Hurst said. “Regardless of how long you have served or what title in government you hold, you must be accountable to the people you represent.”

Neal and Hurst are both scheduled to participate Tuesday in a Black Lives Matter event in Neal’s Atwater Park neighborhood.

Morse also announced that he has raised $322,000 in campaign contributions in the second quarter, the best fundraising quarter of his campaign, and a total of $841,000 this cycle.
