ghoulnextdoor Duke’s Undergraduate Law Magazine, this exception makes it clear that incarcerated persons don’t have constitutional rights under the 13th Amendment – they can be compelled to work for as little as $1 an hour. HISTORY. “First, the 13th Amendment text allows for involuntary servitude where convicted of a crime.” At the same time, “black codes” in the south created “new types of offenses, especially attitudinal offenses—not showing proper respect, those types of things.” This form of coerced prison labor has its roots in one of the most exploitative labor systems known in American history – the convict lease system.

Parents’ Harsh Warning About Anti-Vaxxer Neighbor Goes Viral

Anti-vaxxers, or “pro-diseasers” as they are affectionately known on the Internet, have caused a lot of unnecessary pain and suffering, for their own children and others around them. With diseases that we’ve been close to eliminating seeing a resurgence, the World Health Organization have gone as far as naming them one of the biggest threats to health in 2019. In Wisconsin, where opting out of vaccines for medical, religious, or personal reasons is legal, there is a particularly high rate of parents choosing not to protect their children from preventable diseases. Across the US, around 2 percent of kindergartners are unvaccinated, whereas in Wisconsin around 5 percent have not received vaccines, according to a CDC report last year. Wanting to protect themselves, a group …

Prime minister deploys relaxed performance at odds with her usual formal style. But did it work? Seated on a grey sofa in her Chequers country home, her left elbow propped up casually, a vase of tulips off to her right, Theresa May wants to have a friendly chat. Over the past few days, people have been asking me what on earth has been happening with Brexit, she says. And I can understand that, because after all its been nearly three years since people voted in the referendum for the UK to leave the European Union, she says with a weary, bemused chuckle.

Poll workers journey to reach India’s most remote voters

In India’s six-week marathon election that began this week, the Election Commission has ruled that no voter should have to travel more than 2 kilometers, or just over a mile, from their home to cast a ballot, whether they live on a Himalayan peak or an island in the Bay of Bengal.

Poll workers must be in superb physical condition to cross mountains, rivers, deserts, forests and national parks. …

The Uncomfortable Reason Behind The Rise Of Millennial Scammers Betches

In 2019, it’s old news that we love a good scamming story. But among the “stars” of this year’s scamming news cycle—Anna Delvey, Billy McFarland, and Elizabeth Holmes, to name a few—there’s one clear similarity. They’re all millennial scammers. Now, our generation has been accused of a lot of things: we’re lazy and entitled, we ruin whole industries, and we simply cannot get enough of avocado toast. But maybe we’ve been dancing around the most damning accusation of all. As stories pile up of outrageous con artists born between 1981 and 1996, I have to ask: are millennials the scammer generation? If we are, I can hardly say it’s surprising. Growing up, I saw a lot of promises about “the …

In Praise of Greys Anatomy Portrayal Of Plus-Sized Women

Elissa Sanci Updated January 26, 2019 By ABC I’ve watched religiously for years and I’ve always loved it. I loved the story lines, the characters, the interactions, the drama — everything about it. I’ve watched the series through twice, but only recently have I realized the hidden gem of this show. Not once throughout nine seasons has it been mentioned that two of the main characters, Callie Torres and Miranda Bailey, are plus-sized women. This, to me, is shockingly refreshing. Big girls are usually side characters on today’s television shows. Their story lines are not followed; at least not seriously. They are usually made out to be the punch lines of jokes, always louder than life, which gives both female …
