Border Patrol union deletes 2012 anti-border wall web page that argued walls waste taxpayer money

A union that represents agents for the U.S. Border Patrol deleted a 2012 page from their website that said building walls or fences along the U.S./Mexico border to stop desperate migrants would be “wasting taxpayer money.” VICE's Motherboard reports that the deleted web page was originally posted in 2012. It carried an argument against walls like the one Trump's pushing today, and said border barriers don’t tackle migration's root causes, and may encourage more migrants to enter the U.S. thro...

Art in Public Spaces: A Chronicle of Art Installations in Berlin

Berlin has an international reputation for being a paradise for artists of any kind. During the last 30 years, our beloved city has seen an incredible big amount of large scale art installations, constructed not only in exhibition spaces, but also in public spaces, like squares or streets. We are crazy about artworks, especially if they are emotionally touching, impressive, contemplative, and why not, also appealing to our eyes. We prepared a list of the most remarkable and unforgettable art ins...

Trump, the Democrats, the Shutdown and the Wall

There are issues that divide Republicans and Democrats that sometimes benefit the GOP and at another time the Democrats.  Universal healthcare and abortion are issues like this. And so might be the issue of the border wall.  If so, the Democrats should be very careful. What follows is a comment on politics, not policy. Here’s how salience works.  In 1992, the Democrats won elections on a promise of national health insurance. In 1994, the Republicans won partly by running against the actual De...

Trump: I’m Not Flip-Flopping!!! 100 Percent Concrete Wall! Mostly.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Despite public equivocations by three confidants, President Donald Trump is insisting he wants to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. “An all concrete Wall was NEVER ABANDONED,” tweeted Trump, whose demand for congressional funding to construct one has caused a budgetary standoff. “Some areas will be all concrete but the experts at Border Patrol prefer a Wall that is see through (thereby making it possible to see what is happening on both sides).” Trump’s comments on M...

Is it news that Trump's wall is not a wall made out of concrete?

I'm trying to read "Kelly, on His Way Out, Says Administration Long Ago Abandoned Idea of Concrete Wall" by Maggie Haberman in the NYT. The concrete border wall that President Trump has repeatedly called for as a signature campaign promise...What? Trump has been repeatedly calling for a "concrete" wall? I thought he'd been saying all along that it needs to be see-through and couldn't be a solidly opaque wall. The word "concrete" is ambiguous. Is the NYT using it to mean the opposite of "abstract...

Here's what you missed this weekend: Trump tries to respond to dead children at the border, Kelly says the 'wall' won't be a real wall at all, and truculent truck drivers block Tesla Superchargers

President Donald Trump, Republicans, and administration officials have responded to a second December death of a migrant child in US custody. In an interview, outgoing White House chief of staff John Kelly said Trump's "Wall" won't actually be a wall. Business Insider spoke to truck drivers pointedly blocking Tesla Superchargers as multiple reports of the trend have surfaced online. It was the weekend before New Year's Day 2019, but 2018's news didn't stop. Following the death of a second mig...

Trump: Gov’t Won’t Reopen Until Dems Agree To Wall Or ‘Whatever They Call It’

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump said Tuesday that parts of the federal government will stay closed until Democrats agree to put up more walls along the U.S.-Mexico border to deter criminal elements.

In a Christmas Day appearance in the Oval Office, Trump issued a lengthy defense of his desire for a wall, saying it’s the only way to stop drugs and human traffickers from entering the country....

John Wall was frustrated. His Wizards had just been crushed by the 76ers 123-98 in a game where Washington trailed by 12 after one quarter, 22 at the half, and was never in doubt after that point. Wall himself had 11 points on 4-of-15 shooting on the

New Book: "Streamliner - Raymond Loewy and Image-making in the Age of American Industrial Design"

Raymond Loewy, the father of the profession of industrial design, is renowned for (among other things) designing trains in the streamlined style. But here's a fun fact: Before he was designing trains, he got his foot in the door at the Pennsylvania Railroad by designing…a trash can for Penn Station in New York City.That was in 1932, and Loewy of course went on to design trains, planes, automobiles, appliances, logos and more. If you're interested in both Loewy's life story and his many design ac...

Supreme Court looks ready to let customers sue Apple for abusing its App Store monopoly

The Supreme Court hearing on Pepper v Apple has not gone well for Apple; the Supremes are considering whether App Store customers are entitled to sue Apple over its monopoly control over the Ios App Store. The plaintiffs say that Apple's 30% commission and control over pricing (exerted through search ranking and other mechanisms) raise prices on apps, and that they should be entitled to sue Apple for the additional expense its customers bear due to this monopolistic control. The framing is ...

Argument analysis: “Contempt of cop” — Justices search for compromise standard for First Amendment retaliatory arrests

In Monday’s argument in Nieves v. Bartlett, the justices pushed all sides for a compromise approach to handle the broad range of cases that might qualify as First Amendment retaliatory arrests, an approach that would neither allow all claims nor defeat all claims. The case arises from the arrest of respondent Russell Bartlett at Alaska’s Arctic Man Festival, which Chief Justice John Roberts described as “10,000 mostly drunk people in the middle of nowhere” patrolled by eight police officers. In ...

John Wall, Bradley Beal and the crumbling Wizards finally reach their crossroads

Washington Wizards teammates John Wall and Bradley Beal are looking in different directions. Wall was a 26-year-old All-Star then, Beal a 23-year-old on his way to being one, and they should have had the East by the you-know-whats once LeBron left for the Los Angeles Lakers.

‘Suspiria’ Spoiler Review: Exploring the Dark Nooks and Crannies of the Best Horror Remake Ever Made

The halls of the Markos Dance Academy are barren; blanched of color and body, wide deco door frames and high ceilings gape like hungry mouths. The sizes seems preposterous for how few people dwell there: a handful of young women in the company and their teachers. But though the women are small in number, there exists in their building an unflinching, insurmountable terror. A thicket of wicked in its bowels. Numbers don’t matter when evil is thirsting in the shadows. Luca Guadagnino’s palati...

Argument analysis: Justices grapple with nondelegation challenge

At Tuesday’s oral argument in Gundy v. United States, the justices took up an important case involving the nondelegation doctrine — the rule that Congress cannot transfer its power to legislate to another branch of government without specifying an “intelligible principle” to guide its delegate. The question before the Supreme Court was whether the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act violates the nondelegation doctrine by conferring on the U.S. attorney general the authority to “specif...
