DoJ Deals Massive Blow to Debtors' Prisons, Poor People Can’t be Held When They Can't Afford Bail

Department of Justice (DoJ) made the shocking statement that it will no longer use private prisons to incarcerate federal prisoners, saying they are less safe and less effective than government-run facilities. This was welcome news for those who realize that for-profit prisons contribute to the problem of mass incarceration, but the feds still need to address the glaring issue of jailing people for victimless crimes such as drug use.

The effects on the prison-industrial complex were immediate, as stock values crashed for the Corrections Corporation of America and the GEO Group. Now, another DoJ ruling has the for-profit prison system reeling. For the first time, the DoJ said in a federal appeals court that defendants cannot be held in jail solely because they can’t afford to pay bail. Municipal courts establish contracts with private probation companies that harass indigent defendants for fines and fees. MAYI - Malaysian Association of Yoga Instructors.

Studies show that hot weather brings out the worst in us

Taking refuge from the heat may help. Multiple studies over the past few decades have indicated that heat exposure can negatively affect people’s moods. Hot weather has been linked to increased aggression, violence and higher rates of suicide – and, some caution, global warming may make matters worse. A new U.S. -led study lends support to this research, showing that high temperatures reduce people’s emotional well-being. “We see the strongest effects of heat exposure on respondents saying that they lacked energy or felt tired during the day, as well that they reported increased stress and anger,” says lead author Clemens Noelke, research scientist at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University in Massachusetts.

The study, published in the journal Environmental Research, relied on survey results from nearly 1.9 million Americans, from 2008 to 2013. Noelke offers a few possible reasons why heat makes people feel awful.

Common Stone Types and Northeastern Lithic Technology

Different materials and tools manufactured, used and left behind at a location can tell us a great deal peoples’ activities there. Looking at the distribution of lithic materials and tool types through time, you can start to get a picture of people’s changing settlement patterns, how they used the natural resources across the landscape and glimpse into distant trade routes. A wide range of approaches can be used to study lithic technology. The approaches study the various stages of how stone is acquired, used and disposed of and also how stone is distributed and exchanged. Stone is composed of minerals and can be classified into material types according to how they formed: Mineral growth, Sedimentary, Metamorphic and Volcanic. Some stones split into even planes when fractured.

It's No Myth: Robots and Artificial Intelligence Will Erase Jobs in Nearly Every Industry - Singularity HUB

Indeed, with the technology boom in progress, there is a lot to be optimistic about. Manufacturing will be returning to U.S. shores with robots doing the job of Chinese workers; American carmakers will be mass-producing self-driving electric vehicles; technology companies will develop medical devices that greatly improve health and longevity; we will have unlimited clean energy and 3D print our daily needs. The cost of all of these things will plummet and make it possible to provide for the basic needs of every human being.

I am talking about technology advances that are happening now, which will bear fruit in the 2020s.
