More People Moved in the Foreclosure Crisis Than During the Great Migration | Colorlines
"...while racial segregation has been on the decline in the last 50 years, the foreclosure crisis slowed down the nation's long-term declines in black-white segregation by 19 percent in the last decade. And it did so in two major ways: by forcing families who'd been foreclosed on--a disproportionate number of whom were black and Latino--to move, and by spooking whites into moving out of distressed neighborhoods."

UTF-8 Character Debug Tool
The following chart shows the characters in Windows-1252 from 128 to 255 (hex 80 to FF). The Unicode code point for each character is listed and the hex values for each of the bytes in the UTF-8 encoding for the same characters. These UTF-8 bytes are also displayed as if they were Windows-1252 characters. You can use this chart to debug problems where these sequences of Latin characters occur, where only one character was expected. If you match the sequence that occurs to the sequence in the chart, and the expected value in the chart matches the value that you expected to see, then the problem is being caused by UTF-8 bytes being interpreted as Windows-1252 (or ISO 8859-1) bytes.

How European Jews are building a future and standing up to anti-Semitism, not running away - Jewish World Features - Israel News | Haaretz
Is it time for the Jews to leave Europe? Since the Paris and Copenhagen terror attacks, many have asked that question. Haaretz's Anshel Pfeffer traveled the continent to ask European Jews themselves. He found vibrant and engaged communities largely unafraid to be openly Jewish, and who aren't going anywhere.

New Orleans and Baltimore after Katrina and Freddie Gray: Jarvis DeBerry | NOLA.com
"How much expectation do we have of the people following the law when the police themselves seem utterly lawless? "As we follow the stories out of Baltimore, I think it's important that we remember how the people of New Orleans looked and how the people of New Orleans were made to look, after Hurricane Katrina, how sympathy for our neighbors' desperate situation quickly evaporated and was replaced with unyielding outrage and judgment. "I don't think we've seen the young folks caught on TV cameras in Baltimore do anything like what the police there have done: busted up people's bodies and killed them."

"The American Psychological Association secretly collaborated with the administration of President George W. Bush to bolster a legal and ethical justification for the torture of prisoners swept up in the post-Sept. 11 war on terror, according to a new report by a group of dissident health professionals and human rights activists. "The report is the first to examine the association’s role in the interrogation program. It contends, using newly disclosed emails, that the group’s actions to keep psychologists involved in the interrogation program coincided closely with efforts by senior Bush administration officials to salvage the program after the public disclosure in 2004 of graphic photos of prisoner abuse by American military personnel at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. “'The A.P.A. secretly coordinated with officials from the C.I.A., White House and the Department of Defense to create an A.P.A. ethics policy on national security interrogations which comported with then-classified legal guidance authorizing the C.I.A. torture program,' the report’s authors conclude."
