The program would see the city paying a number of Chicago families hundreds of dollars every month, with no strings attached. What could go wrong, in a city already so plagued by debt that they can’t even afford to make pension payments? The pilot program, pushed by Chicago’s North Side Alderman Ameya Pawar, would give 1,000 families a $500 monthly stipend. Emmanuel’s task force will feature a panel that will ultimately decide if universal basic income (UBI) can work in the city. Pawar will be a part of the panel and states that UBI will help Chicago tackle poverty. The city of Chicago has $28 billion in … [Read more...] about If Chicago can’t even fund its pensions, how is it going to fund “universal basic incomes” for the masses?

By Washington Post PUBLISHED: September 7, 2018 at 8:36 am | UPDATED: September 7, 2018 at 8:43 am By Peter Holley | The Washington Post They have been pouring into emergency rooms around the nation all summer, their bodies bearing a blend of injuries that doctors normally associate with victims of car wrecks – broken noses, wrists and shoulders, facial lacerations and fractures, as well as the kind of blunt head trauma that can leave brains permanently damaged. When doctors began asking patients to explain their injuries, many were surprised to learn that the surge of broken body parts stemmed from the latest urban transportation trend: shared electric scooters. In Santa Monica, California – where one of the biggest electric-scooter companies is based – the city’s fire department has responded to 34 serious accidents involving the devices this summer. The director of an emergency department there said his team treated 18 patients who were seriously injured … [Read more...] about Scooter use is rising in major cities.

Bill McGraw Special to the Detroit Free Press Published 7:30 AM EDT Sep 7, 2018 Editor's note: This story is running in advance of this weekend, when the Detroit Tigers will honor their 1968 World Series team against the St. Louis Cardinals at Comerica Park: When a large crowd senses its team is seconds away from a major championship, the noise can become almost scary, a deep, sustained roar that pulses through your body. That’s the way it was in Tiger Stadium’s left-field stands on a warm September night in 1968, when the Tigers clinched the American League pennant by rallying in the ninth and beating the Yankees, 2-1. The stands were jammed — attendance was 46,512 on a Tuesday school night — and by the ninth, the mostly young fans in the lower left-field grandstand, primed to storm the field, had pushed so hard against the fence that it listed at a 45-degree angle. I sat out there with friends. We were seniors in high school. Then Don Wert … [Read more...] about How 1968 Detroit Tigers soothed city’s racial tension
The ban, a campaign pledge of President Emmanuel Macron's, was brought in under a law passed in July which also banishes tablets and smart watches from French primary and junior high schools. High schools, taking students aged 15 to 18, will also be allowed to initiate partial or total bans as they reopen after the summer break, though they will not be obligatory. Proponents say the law, which has prompted vigorous debate, will reduce distraction in the classroom, combat bullying and encourage children to be more active during recess. Nearly 90 percent of French adolescents aged between 12 and 17 have a mobile phone, and supporters hope the ban will help limit the spread of violent and pornographic content among children.
