Funny…Nevada’s legal prostitution brothels could come to an end, because of the rise of the #me too movement, and because of anti-sex trafficking and religious groups. A referendum is underway to ban brothels in two of Nevada’s seven counties where prostitution is legal. his, while state’s most famous pimp, Dennis Hof, is running for a seat in the State Legislature. His opponent, Jason Guinasso, is a Reno based attorney involved with the effort to get the anti-brothel measures on the November ballot, says a shift is occurring in mores and morals. Do you think it’s possible (with the climate of #MeToo), to see Nevada actually getting rid of legal prostitution? Prostitution is the oldest profession in the world, so what are the odds that it would go away in Nevada?
No Evil for You! Google has a code of Conduct that if you see something—evil—say something about it. It’s an extension of “If you see something, say something.” In Google’s case, if you perceive something as evil you must report it. This of course is subject and arbitrary, but here’s one recent example: working a government contract on artificial intelligence with regard to military warfare. Google’s contract with the Pentagon will no longer be renewed, because it upset employees. Good policy, or evil policy?
Interview: Richard Sanders, Fair Housing Expert, UCLA Law Professor and Scholar, Author “Moving Toward Integration.” (Harvard press). Topic: Reducing residential segregation is the best way to reduce racial inequality in the United States. Black employment rates, earnings, test scores, and even longevity all improve sharply when residential integration increases. But many policy makes still believe that the battle to integrate America’s cities can’t be won. Sanders will discuss why racial segregation has been resilient even in an increasingly diverse and tolerant society.
Why don’t we have a day of global celebration for Capitalism? We have world population day, women’s day, social justice day, world health day, autism day and world’s ocean day to name a few. Awhile back there was Earth Day first commemorated in 1970. Since then there’s been a lot of advancements–improved water sources worldwide from 50% to 90%, oil spills have declined, and more trees have
been planted in US and Europe. But, Edward Hudgens, columnist for Town Hall says that the real “drivers of progress were not Earth Day awareness or Hippie platitudes, but rather freedom and capitalism—and their benefits. For example, there’s strong correlation between declining child mortality and per capita income. Wealthier countries have more resources to allocate for cleaner air and water, better
education, improved housing and more”. Is it time for a global day of celebration for Capitalism?
