A tiny subset of terrible things that have happened at #Rikers Island #Jail in #NewYorkCity: a primer for upper middle class white people. If you don't know these stories, you are not doing your job as a human.
I'm tweeting about #jails and #bail because (real, substantive) #bailreform is good for society and we need more of it. And I'm tweeting for upper middle class white people because we have a lot of power/positionality, and yet tend to be least knowledgeable about the issues.
Upper middle class white people: I beg you, I plead with you, to educate yourself on these critical criminal justice topics which affect minoritized people most directly, and yet which also affect ALL of society.

US intelligence making a case to renew sweeping communication surveillance powers granted under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act - set to expire this year

"FISA Section 702 is irreplaceable" @CYBERCOM_DIRNSA Gen Paul Nakasone told @PCLOB_GOV Thursday
#FISA establishes rules US intelligence agencies when surveilling foreign powers and agents

Section 702-added in 2008-allows for targeted surveillance of electronic communications of foreign persons outside of the US

BUT critics argue it subjects Americans to unlawful searches
US intel officials, like @CYBERCOM_DIRNSA, call #FISA Section 702 a critical tool

Sec. 702 "plays an outsized role in protecting the nation, providing some of the US gvt's most valuable intelligence on our most challenging targets...It provides unique information w/minimal risk"

FLASHBACK: Barbara Walters, who died today at 93, filed this woman-on-the-street report in the hours following the #JFKAssassination. 📺

Barbara documented the eerie quiet in bustling #NewYorkCity on the night of Nov. 22, 1963.

And yes, that IS Barbara’s longtime ABC News 20/20 co-host Hugh Downs with her in this vintage 1963 clip.

Downs hosted the Today Show for NBC at the time. Barbara got her start as a writer at @TODAYshow before graduating to on-camera assignments like this one…
Barbara Walters visited the Russian Embassy in Manhattan on the evening of Nov. 22, 1963 and reported the Embassy was flying the flag at half staff in President Kennedy’s honor. An attendant at the door was clearly stunned with grief.

I arrived in the Big Apple, New York City from the hills of Natal, South Africa to glamour-shock. The big city lights intimidated me in so many ways. It’s safe to say I was not prepared for the life that awaited me in the Big Apple
In the absence of my mother, community, and the priest I had no one to guide me. As such, I had to rely solely on what they taught me.
It remained to be seen if that would keep me on the straight and narrow.
Truth is one is never prepared for the charms of the big Apple.
Natal didn’t present a lot of challenges to my character and tests to my spirituality.
The immediate struggle I faced in the concrete jungle of #NewYorkCity was to fit in. I had to fit in if I were to properly integrate and function in that environment.

We @JBREC just surveyed 400+ flippers about #fixandflip conditions in partnership with Flatiron Realty Capital and @SundaeHQ.
Key takeaway: There is a TON of competition for deals right now.
#LasVegas flipper: “Market is oversaturated with inexperienced investors due to an increase of “gurus.” Supply is low, demand is high, and prices are inflated 20%+ over ARV. Not sustainable.”
#Phoenix flipper: “Phoenix is a very active market with home prices on the rise. The competition is aggressive.”

“‘What, you still have a car in the city?’ The well-meaning friend who had driven in from the suburbs for dinner with us let her fork slip into the fondue. ‘When are you going to get rid of it?’”
Keeping a car in New York City comes with all sorts of its own hassles, @nytimes reported in 1970: the nightly pre-martini search for a parking spot for the next day (post-martini is too late — by then the spots are all gone). And of course: the costs.
Today, many of those hassles and costs still exist. For many taxi-taking, Citi Biking New Yorkers who swore off private transport long ago, owning a car seemed at best unnecessary; at worst, a cumbersome time suck, @weareyourfek wrote in August 2020.

In what is being seen as the first such case in India, eight Asiatic lions have tested positive for the novel coronavirus at a zoo in Hyderabad. Nehru Zoological Park (NZP) got to know about this on April 29. #NehruZoologicalPark #Asiaticlions #COVID19India
However, Dr. Siddhanand Kukrety, the Curator and Director of the zoo, said, "It's true that the lions showed COVID symptoms but I am yet to receive the RT-PCR reports from the CCMB and hence it will not be proper to comment. The lions are doing well." #NehruZoologicalPark
Zoo officials had decided to test the lions after wildlife veterinarians at the facility noticed coronavirus-like symptoms such as coughing, nasal discharge, and a loss of appetite among some of the lions. #COVIDEmergency2021 #Wildlife #NehruZoologicalPark
