Resolution For President Trump & Protesting NFL Players Kneeling During Anthem

Ludo Aequitas, a not for profit organization has the cognitive and behavioural components to resolve the war of words between President Trump and professional players and sports people protesting during national anthem. More information about the controversial topic can be found here: www.ludoaequitas.org.

Colonel Light Gardens, Australia - October 13, 2017 /PressCable/ —

Ludo Aequitas, a not for profit organization – with its key platform the promotion of mental health and equality through sport was created to resolve the exact type of conflict which has now erupted between President Trump and the athletes of its national sports.

The anthem, flag, standing with hand over heart are symbols, gestures, that the United States uses, more than most, as symbols of respect, honour and a commitment to its values as a country and a society. There is also the matter of its constitution and the rights to free speech. The problem arises when different individuals attach different meanings to such symbols, depending on their life experiences and politics.

In recent times, sport has been asked and involved itself with a number of bio-psycho-socio-cultural issues. These include motor neurone disease, breast cancer, concussion encephalopathy, mental health, domestic violence and poverty with the aim of promoting awareness, education and change in attitudes and behaviour.

Now it is race relations and law enforcement.

Whether to kneel or to stand? Link arms or not? What are the values being debated?

Ludo Aequitas has a compromise: through the adoption of its “Ludo Creed” – a set of sporting and human values; and “Do The Ludo” – a sporting behaviour that offers an alternative to either standing or kneeling. A neutral venue for all.

Ludo Creed – is the central cognitive component to the Ludo Aequitas initiative. “We, the players representing our chosen sport, do solemnly swear to uphold the Ludo values of equality, respect, honour and fair play at all times, and denounce vilification based on Race, Colour, Sex, Age, Gender, Religion, Disability or Social Status.”

Do The Ludo – is the central behavioural component of the Ludo Aequitas initiative. It is designed to symbolise strength and defiance, pride and compassion. It can be done individually, with the right arm in the air with a clenched fist, and the left arm folded across the heart (or vice versa). Others can join in by placing their left or right arm around the shoulder of the person next to them, and their other arm again folded across the heart. In this way a “LudoLink” chain can be established either realistically or virtually.

President Trump, sports people and athletes, the fans, the owners, are all invited to “Do The Ludo” as a show of unity and mutual respect for their position.

SAN FRANCISCO — Government workers, local celebrities and residents who didn't know him personally streamed past the body of the late Mayor Ed Lee to say goodbye to San Francisco's leader of seven years. His body lay in repose in a closed casket draped with the American flag, behind velvet ropes. People stopped briefly to bow or pray, and then moved into a side hall to write their condolences.

Trump touts loyalty to police but delivers attack on FBI

Dec 15, 2017

QUANTICO, Va. — Taking aim at the credibility of the FBI, President Donald Trump unleashed a blistering attack on the bureau's leadership even as he praised state and local police officers as a bulwark against rising violence and crime. Trump denounced the bureau for its handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, calling it "really disgraceful" and continuing his practice of questioning his country's intelligence and law enforcement institutions like no president before. "It's a shame what's happened with the FBI," the president said. "We're going to rebuild the FBI, it'll be bigger and better than ever, but it is...

Unique premise helps 'Search Party' find its following

Dec 15, 2017

NEW YORK — Even the star and executive producers of TBS' "Search Party" agree it's not an easy premise to describe. "It's like 'Scooby Doo,'" joked executive producer Charles Rogers. "But it's good," quipped actress Alia Shawkat (who is also an executive producer on the show). What "Search Party" is about is a group of 20-something friends in Brooklyn searching for a missing friend from college. Shawkat's character, Dory, becomes particularly fixated on the mystery and in the end (spoiler alert) we find out the friend wasn't really missing at all. And just when you think the point of the...
