The 2007 Boston Mooninite panic occurred on Wednesday, January 31, 2007, after the Boston Police Department and the Boston Fire Department mistakenly identified battery-powered LED placards depicting the Mooninites, characters from the Adult Swim animated television series Aqua Teen Hunger Force, as improvised explosive devices.
"VICE News identified seven cross-border shootings since the agency was founded in 2003 — cases in which Mexican citizens who were in Mexico were killed by CBP officers who were in the U.S. Three of the victims were teenagers. (We identified at least two other cross-border shooting victims who survived. We found no similar incidents along the border with Canada.)"
'Finally, in a footnote, he left open the possibility that law-enforcement officials might not need a warrant to obtain cell-site location records for a shorter period of time than the seven days at issue in Carpenter’s case. But what law-enforcement officials do not have, he stressed, is “unrestricted access to a wireless carrier’s database of” cell-site location information.'
Greg Kroleski's marathon training plan, loosely based on Jack Daniels' formula, which got him to a 2:42 finish. Interesting to me because he only ran 5 days a week and averaged less than 42 miles per week, less than what I plan, but is much master than me. (He also has a plan where he runs only 3 days a week.)
Even though it conflicts a bit with the Jack Daniels plan I'm trying to follow (which has me running 7 days a week, about the same mileage every day during the first phase of training), I found this video by Jason Fitzgerald on planning weekly mileage to be useful as I try to put together a marathon training plan.
I like this guy's writing. I'm currently planning my summer marathon training and came across this article. The entries after this one mention him getting sick and DNFing his race -- but I'm still probably going to switch to 7 days a week of running as I increase my mileage.
Churches, as already-existing social centers, represent one of the better chances of actually providing an alternative source of crisis counseling, protection, and aid which could displace the police in many of the roles they are the worst at.
"The press, both local and national, humanizes some victims of state or corporate violence, while demonizing others. Despite good intentions and seemingly without noticing, the media all too often create tiered systems of moral worth by trying to find 'the perfect victim.'"
"Mutualism is an economic theory and anarchist school of thought that advocates a society with free markets and occupation and use property norms. One implementation of this scheme involves the establishment of a mutual-credit bank that would lend to producers at a minimal interest rate, just high enough to cover administration. Mutualism is based on a version of the labor theory of value holding that when labor or its product is sold, in exchange it ought to receive goods or services embodying "the amount of labor necessary to produce an article of exactly similar and equal utility". Mutualism originated from the writings of philosopher Pierre-Joseph Proudhon."
