Denver’s City Council, Led by Democratic Socialist, Stuns For-Profit Prison Operators by Nuking Contracts

quote [ It wasn’t about pulling money from the halfway houses but from “organizations that put kids in cages, run concentration camps,” said one council member. ]

Fuck those fucking fuckers. For-profit prisons are an affront to civilization.

US police shoot almost 1,000 people dead per year, figures show

quote [ Fatal shootings by police are the rare outcomes of the millions of encounters between police officers and the public. Despite the unpredictable events that lead to the shootings, in each of the past four years police nationwide have shot and killed almost the same number of people - nearly 1,000. ]

When you start digging in to the statistics inside this number, it's painful how obvious the race issue is in the USA.

'It would destroy it': new international airport for Machu Picchu sparks outrage

quote [ Among the Inca archeological sites that abound in Peru, none draw nearly as many tourists as the famed citadel of Machu Picchu. There were more than 1.5 million visitors in 2017, almost double the limit recommended by Unesco, putting a huge strain on the fragile ruins and local ecology.

Now, in a move that has drawn a mixture of horror and outrage from archaeologists, historians and locals, work has begun on clearing ground for a multibillion-dollar international airport, intended to jet tourists much closer to Machu Picchu . ]

While I understand that tourism helps preserve some historic sites, there needs to be hard limits on the number of people who can trample around...

Butter-Scented Chemical Linked to "Popcorn Lung" Discovered in Vape Juices

quote [ In 2007, health officials in California revealed that numerous workers in local flavoring factories suffered from a rare, life-threatening lung condition called bronchiolitis obliterans, later nicknamed “popcorn lung.” The illness, which scars the air sacs of the lungs and makes breathing difficult, stemmed from exposure to diacetyl, a yellow chemical used to give microwave popcorn its buttery flavor. Now, that chemical is at the center of a new study revealing that it’s harmful in vape liquids as well. ]

Out of the frying pan, into the fire.
