Middlesex County Prosecutor Yolanda Ciccone served as the panel ''s mediator, posing questions and moderating discussion. In her words, the aim of the listening session was to ”strengthen relationships between the prosecutor ''s office, law enforcement, and the communities that they serve ” by giving citizens a say in local policing. Over the hour and a half that the meeting was streamed for, Ciccone and a panel of six discussed the current state of policing policy and how they would like to see it changed in the future, along with answering questions that were submitted by citizens in advance over email.The end goal is to update New Jersey ''s use of force policy by the end of 2020, or instate a new one altogether. The current policy that the state follows is over twenty years old. With these changing times and the increased focus on the use of force by police, the policy must be revised to better prevent the incidence of the abuse of power.

For centuries, people have described unusual animal behaviour just ahead of seismic events: dogs barking incessantly, cows halting their milk, toads leaping from ponds. A few researchers have tried to substantiate a link. In a 2013 study, Germany scientists videotaped red wood ants that nested along a fault line and found they changed their usual routine before a quake, becoming more active at night and less active during the day. But most such attempts have relied largely on anecdotal evidence and single observations, according to a 2018 Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America review that examined 180 previous studies.Now researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior and the University of Konstanz, both in Germany, along with a multinational team of colleagues, say they have managed to precisely measure increased activity in a group of farm animals prior to seismic activity. Though a definitive link has still not been proved, the scientists say their findings are a significant step forward in the search for one. There are the old tales from Aristotle and Alexander von Humboldt, who saw this behavior, says study co author Martin Wikelski, managing director of the Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior. But only now can we do continuous biologging of the activities and the nervousness of animals. The technical possibilities are finally there.

The Seattle Children s Museum has laid off nine of its remaining full time staff members this week following a controversial move to delete anti racist messaging from its social media posts. In an open letter published Tuesday on Medium, anonymous workers detailed how executive director Christi Keith purposefully removed captions on Instagram and Facebook that centered the Black Lives Matter movement in order to avoid discouraging contributions from donors. The staff claims this issue is symbolic of regular indignities, microaggressions, and institutional inequities from director level staff. On May 30, an employee added posts addressing racial justice in early childhood education on the museum s social media accounts, stating that children should learn anti racism to foster loving and inclusive communities. In the hours after posting, Keith allegedly took over the social media accounts, first deleting the phrase Black Lives Matter from each caption and then deleting the captions altogether (original text can be viewed on Facebook s public edit history of the posts). In the process, she also changed the Instagram account password and revoked the staff member s access to their work email.
WASHINGTON: Facebook Inc on Tuesday placed a "voting info" label on a post by US President Donald Trump that said mail in voting would lead to a "CORRUPT ELECTION." The label is the most recent of several placed on posts by Republican Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden since the company launched a policy to add information to posts by federal candidates and elected officials."Mail In Voting, unless changed by the courts, will lead to the most CORRUPT ELECTION in our Nation s History #RIGGEDELECTION," Trump wrote. Voting by mail is not new in the United States nearly 1 in 4 voters cast 2016 presidential ballots that way. Routine methods and the decentralized nature of U.S. elections make it very hard to interfere with mailed ballots, experts say. The Facebook label, which does not dispute Trump s claim, redirects users to details from a U.S. government website on how to vote in the 2020 elections.

At the time, the premiere of Mad Men, a cultural touchstone that spurred a fervent obsession with anything and everything associated with midcentury modern design, was still a couple years away. Serious interest in petite sized homes was still incubating. Both were trends within the architecture and design and preservation communities back in 2004 but they have become mass market phenomena in the 16 years since, explained Randl to AN of what has changed in the years since A frame was first published. The other important difference is the rise of social media that allows people to share ideas and favored designs in ways that spread rapidly, efficiently, and without the mediation of experts or authorities.
