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
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
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
Elon Musk's Management Advice
Musk seems to approach running a business much as he'd approach a complex engineering project: Figure out what works and do that, even if it doesn't make sense to anyone else.
