Denver Cut Ties With For-Profit Prison Companies
The Denver City Council cut ties with the country’s two biggest private prison companies on Tuesday. Eight of the 12 council members voted against two resolutions that would have renewed contracts with CoreCivic and GEO Group, which together run six halfway houses in the area. CoreCivic acquired the facilities in 2017, and GEO Group in 2018. The contracts were worth $10 million. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/denver-for-profit-prisons_n_5d4c5224e4b0066eb70e7549?utm_campaign=hp_fb_pages&utm_source=main_fb&utm_medium=facebook&ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000063&section=politics&fbclid=IwAR0y_ghSzMaVVCeU4KGNfiaA0DEQNp60WGUp9J-ggpQN_0AxfN2CfFPvuMI

Craving Freedom,Japanese Women Opt Out of Marriage
Today, such outright insults have faded as a growing number of Japanese women are postponing or forgoing marriage, rejecting the traditional path that leads to what many now regard as a life of domestic drudgery. The percentage of women who work in Japan is higher than ever, yet cultural norms have not caught up: Japanese wives and mothers are still typically expected to bear the brunt of the housework, child care and help for their aging relatives, a factor that stymies many of their careers.https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/03/world/asia/japan-single-women-marriage.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=aut&bicmet=1419773522000&bicmlukp=WT.mc_id&bicmp=AD&bicmst=1409232722000&fbclid=IwAR0szexQW_yvjhHBUJRDb7ZWJ9PSg1H04UUJjw93lIsSKcDTPlHw1M0J0ks

Should I lend money to my financially frivolous bf
My boyfriend and I are in our mid-20s. We’re in full-time employment and live separately. We each earn a modest amount, with him about a grade higher than me. We have very different views on money. I’m frugal, he’s somewhat frivolous. He often borrows money from me at the end of the month. I have obliged in the past and he returned it as soon as payday came around. I have recently moved out from my parents’ house and so my outgoings have increased a lot. I have savings, but these are strictly for a house deposit. I told him that moving out would mean that I wouldn’t be able to lend him money any more, but he asked again. I refused, and this escalated into an argument, with him accusing me of not helping when I can, and that doing this out of principle has hurt him. We can’t agree, and I’m not sure how to move forward.https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2019/aug/02/should-i-lend-money-to-my-financially-frivolous-boyfriend?CMP=fb_gu&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR3Jk9UDJH3nivKUIw8WT8TGh0nTryDLy6iOOgzhDk3ETRdBw_T8wJROCJ8#Echobox=1564744695

DOJ Looking at Options to Add Citizenship Question
Lawyers for the Department of Justice told a federal judge in Maryland Friday afternoon that the Trump administration will continue to explore options of adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census, but made no mention of a potential executive order being considered by the White House. Judge George Hazel nevertheless ordered the government to begin producing details about how the citizenship issue was handled in a lawsuit brought by immigrant rights groups who argue it is discriminatory. An administration official stressed that as of now the census will be printed without the citizenship question, though discussions are continuing about how to challenge last week's Supreme Court ruling blocking the Census Bureau from adding it to the questionnaire.https://edition.cnn.com/2019/07/05/politics/census-citizenship-question-deadline-donald-trump/index.html?utm_content=2019-07-05T17%3A00%3A05&utm_term=link&utm_medium=social&utm_source=fbCNNi&fbclid=IwAR1cG9JVTQw3GkaZXP502SpORuFcPr8JopJhinvQIkiWqhGrPDJm-1MX4OU

Ancient City of Babylon:Unesco World Heritage Site
The ancient Mesopotamian city of Babylon has been declared a Unesco World Heritage Site. Iraq had been lobbying since 1983 for the 4,000-year-old site to be added to the United Nations' prestigious list. The city was famous for its Hanging Gardens, which were among the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The site has suffered in recent years - first from the construction of a palace for Saddam Hussein, and later from being used as a base for US troops.https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-48888893?ocid=socialflow_facebook&ns_campaign=bbcnews&ns_mchannel=social&ns_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR1l3uc0GvIionfOi4D7yP83g_S4_dJXtrEd5jT1ZwvtUwsBvtnr6MZ72TQ

US Immigrant Detention Centers' "Horrifying" State
Conditions at the US government's immigrant detention facilities have come under fire in recent days after new reports of overcrowding and insufficient supplies. The Department of Homeland Security's inspector general reviewed a set of five facilities in June and released harrowing pictures suggesting severe overcrowding. Court documents from migrants seeking asylum filed in California paint a picture of inadequate food and water, freezing temperatures, and a lack of proper bedding.https://www.businessinsider.com/ice-immigrant-families-dhs-detention-centers-2018-6?utm_content=buffere44ad&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer-ti&fbclid=IwAR1VKbVfwm888MVEVH5u0_x2ar46zuMV3L05NYnZ3ER7A9jnkg9pcrPmp7M

Honeymoon Hashtag Hell
If you ask JP Smith what he remembers most about his 2014 honeymoon in Aruba, he’ll say the sunsets, but not because of their beauty. “It was like a photo shoot for some magazine that would never exist,” said Mr. Smith, 38, a real estate agent in New York, and he didn’t mean that in a good way. He described the weeklong vacation with his new wife, Natasha Huang Smith, as a “sunset nightmare,” “stressful,” “cumbersome” and “torturous.” Ms. Huang Smith, 34, who works in digital marketing, was attempting to showcase their honeymoon on Instagram. “I had to prove to the world that I was having a great time,” she said. And so half of her day was spent shooting, editing, or planning Instagram posts. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/19/fashion/weddings/honeymoon-hashtag-hell.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur&fbclid=IwAR0WYWHN1P5wHHUiHaFxNjb0R_hsJ-tQ_Ie6iieTAU3C0_JDZkpgYyZZG0A

Can You Fix a Toxic Culture Without Firing People?
The flight attendant had to ask her twice, “Anything to drink, ma’am?” “Oh, sorry. Water, no ice, please,” said Noelle Freeman, the CFO of Franklin Climate Systems. Watching the clouds out her window at 30,000 feet, she’d been deep in thought. She was on her way home from two days in Arkansas visiting her company’s largest facility. Franklin was in the business of designing, engineering, and manufacturing climate control systems for cars and SUVs. It was a division of FB Holdings, a manufacturing company based in Aurora, Illinois, and it had the unfortunate distinction of being the group’s poorest performing unit for nearly a decade.https://hbr.org/2018/08/case-study-can-you-fix-a-toxic-culture-without-firing-people?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=hbr&fbclid=IwAR2GNEeUNwbnWgPunbGK2Thp1C470g0n47uia_IV6FTBJct0r2iMlEyOzMM
