Private prisons, explained

Brett C. Burkhardt, Assistant Professor of Sociology, Oregon State University at Politics + Society – The Conversation - 26 minutes ago
A glimpse behind bars Cropped from krystiano/flickr, CC BY The year 2016 was a wild one for the private prison industry. During the presidential election campaign, the Democratic challengers both called for an end to private prisons. The leader in the industry announced it would lay off 12 percent of headquarters staff. Then, in August, Obama’s Department of Justice announced that the Bureau of Prisons would phase out its use of privately run prisons. As a result of this announcement, stock prices for the biggest private prison companies dropped precipitously. All of this was in th... more »

How companies can stay ahead of the cybersecurity curve

Scott Shackelford, Associate Professor of Business Law and Ethics, Indiana University at Science + Technology – The Conversation - 28 minutes ago
Companies must work hard to keep their data safe. Graphic via shutterstock.com If you’re like me, on a given day you interact with a whole range of connected technologies for work and play. Just today, I used Box to share and download files for work, called up Tile to find my keys, relied on Google Maps to run an errand while streaming a podcast to my AirPods, and connected via Skype with a colleague overseas. And that was all before lunch. As we interact with technology of all sorts, what security safeguards should we expect from the companies building the Internet of Everything? ... more »

What dung beetles are teaching us about the genetics of sex differences

Cris Ledón-Rettig, Postdoctoral Fellow of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington at Science + Technology – The Conversation - 28 minutes ago
Picture a lion: The male has a luxuriant mane, the female doesn’t. This is a classic example of what biologists call sexual dimorphism – the two sexes of the same species exhibit differences in form or behavior. Male and female lions pretty much share the same genetic information, but look quite different. We’re used to thinking of genes as responsible for the traits an organism develops. But different forms of a trait – mane or no mane – can arise from practically identical genetic information. Further, traits are not all equally sexually dimorphic. While the tails of peacocks an... more »

Trump Is Having An Impact-- Even In California

CA-48 is changing... slowly.

What’s more important than political change?

[image: Art1] In the long run, what’s far more important than any amount of tedious political yammering? What trumps political change?

Yet Russia and the United States are not allies in the Middle East. At least not yet. U.S. President Donald Trump may get in bed with the Russians and the Shiites eventually, but he doesn’t seem to have given the matter much thought yet.

Trump Budget Cuts Bankroll New Waste

James Bovard at 9 hours ago
[image: undefined] President Trump’s proposed budget takes a big step towards draining the swamp in Washington. This is the first time since the Reagan era that a president has sought a wholesale demolition of boondoggles. On the other hand, Trump’s defense and homeland security spending increases will squander bounties that should be reserved for taxpayers, not bureaucrats and bombs. Regardless of whether Trump can cajole Congress into imposing the cuts, Americans should welcome candor on an array of federal programs that should have been decimated or abolished long ago: The Hou... more »

The first family of neoconservatism, the Kagans, have recently regrouped after the election and have taken to the media to demand more war footing against Russia and a return to the policy of "regime change" in Syria.

*WNU Editor*: Trump is a "bullshitter". "Pathological liar". Should not criticise the courts and media who criticise him. etc. etc. etc... This is what now passes for commentary and analysis on CNN today.

Ever wonder why Trump won? Well, it wasn’t due to Russia. Why not? Because even if Russians could have traveled half way around the world to enter thousands of US polling places, how could they have changed the votes in all of them without a single Russian being apprehended? Answer: It was impossible. So why have the “mainstream media” been claiming that Russia did it? Well, it appears that the lying media are owned by the neocons, who seem to want a war with Russia. So, why on earth would anyone want that?! Wouldn’t that kill us all? Well, my only answer is that they must be insane. So, what is really going on now? Find out by playing the discussion below. It’s the best summation you will find anywhere!

*"The Deep State's Doomsday Bug"* by Bill Bonner "My contact- a former CIA Director- died mysteriously, just after revealing a powerful network of insiders who pull America’s strings. This is my attempt to expose what they’ve done… and why It cannot be stopped. On May 6, 1996, a body was found floating face down in the shallow water of the Chesapeake Bay. It was the body of a former CIA director, a man who used to consult for me. The Charles County, Maryland police department logged it as an accidental drowning. But many of us suspect otherwise. The surprising truth behind this mys... more »

"I Would Rather Be..."

"I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time." - Jack London

Following on from Terry Cardwell's post *THE COMING POWER CRISIS* (link) Snowy Hydro Electric SchemeImage: modernmarvels *Terry Cardwell* The Snowy Hydro Electric Scheme is the greatest power scheme in Australia but it is limited by the availability of water. For that reason, we must use it at the most necessary times such as peak loads or emergencies. Without the Snowy Hydro ‘topup’ they would have to build more thermal or gas turbine generators to cover the peaks and more important the spinning reserve. The Snowy power allows more flexibility and the generators can be run up, ... more »

Lauren Ferreira Cardoso, Ph.D. Candidate in Social Welfare, University of Pennsylvania at Politics + Society – The Conversation - 1 day ago
“I actually don’t remember when I was first harassed on the street, but I do remember when I first experienced it as an abusive act: I was an adolescent traveling with my mom in a crowded underground wagon, where men could easily touch women without anyone noticing and with little possibility to prevent it.” This was the experience of Lucía Vázquez, a researcher in Mexico City, Mexico. Unfortunately, her story is not unique.
