Kenosha business Following the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and the subsequent protests, Trump visited the city to tour businesses that were damaged. The president’s team had wanted him to meet with Tom Gram, the owner of a camera shop that had been destroyed, but he refused to be a part of it. So Trump posed for cameras with the former owner instead. Gram told TMJ4 Milwaukee that the photo op was deceptive. Trump did not meet with Blake’s family during the trip. … [Read more...] about Trump’s 60 Minutes stunt is just his latest ridiculous photo op. These photos prove it

In response, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson just announced a directive that affirmatively forbids individuals from carrying guns into polling places on Election Day. But other competitive swing states, which remain the focus of voter drives by both parties, are still without such official pronouncements. As threats of armed voter intimidation loom, with the intent to lower turnout among certain communities on November 3, gun reform groups are hoping those states’ attorneys general will pass similar laws. In either case, poll workers will likely be the first line of defense. … [Read more...] about It’s legal to bring guns to the polls in many swing states. What could go wrong?
The company will also need enough people to register in different corners of the world to make it environmentally feasible to deliver shoes to those zones. (In both directions, sneakers will be shipped in sustainable packaging.) It’s currently targeting a minimum of 5,000 subscribers per customs union, and it won’t deliver to an area unless it reaches that critical mass. It wouldn’t make sense to increase the carbon footprint to deliver one box to a “far-flung corner of Fiji,” Coppetti says. “Everything we gain through the back loop would be lost just on the logistics side.” … [Read more...] about You can only get Swiss running brand On’s new recyclable shoes via subscription
GiveDirectly would then target those communities with direct cash relief. The charity only sends money transfers, typically on prepaid debit cards, because that allows people to decide for themselves how to spend the money on recovery. Sending clothing, for instance, can clog up supply lines; food donations can go bad; and it’s hard to donate vital items such as building materials. It’s also simply less patronizing. “Traditional aid has some paternalistic bent to it,” says Alex Diaz, head of crisis and humanitarian response at Google.org, “but the notion of direct cash transfer, at its core, acknowledges the dignity and agency within recipients.” … [Read more...] about This new tool pinpoints the communities most in need of disaster relief
As we face a climate turning point for which our post-COVID-19 behaviors are especially crucial, it’s important that higher-income individuals who move outward live in an eco-friendly way, especially when many essential and lower-wage workers must stay in cities and, often, climate hotspots. “COVID-19 has illustrated a sad truism: We may all be in the same boat, but we all do not have the same paddles,” Daniel Kammen, the other Berkeley study author, wrote in an email to Fast Company. Affluent individuals in New York and San Francisco have the financial means to insulate themselves from climate risks, such as wildfires and unsafe air, by working from home and relocating, he explained. “Multiple properties, often larger suburban and rural homes, and longer delivery chains all mean that individual emissions of the affluent rise when they take the extra precautions they can afford.” … [Read more...] about If COVID-19 pushes people to the suburbs, how can we make them more environmentally friendly?
