AMLO’s Money Guy Sends Message to Anxious Wall Street Crowd - Bloomberg
Lopez Obrador has been mending fences with investors after sending the peso into a tailspin in late October when he said he’d cancel a $13 billion airport already under construction. The peso has now fully recovered from that rout thanks to a 2019 budget widely regarded as prudent, if not somewhat optimistic, and a deal struck with bondholders of the cancelled airport project.

Prison Reform Law Doesn't Go Far Enough - Bloomberg
"The upshot is that many incarcerated people suffer cruel and unusual punishment far beyond any issues they might raise about the unfairness of their sentence. Furthermore, once they are in prison, they often have little recourse to the rule of law if they are beaten, harassed, raped or intimidated — including, of course, by prison guards. In essence, they are being sentenced to live outside the protection of a system of laws, and that is clearly not the intent expressed in the Constitution. It is not unusual for a prison to be found guilty of violating common standards of decency, never mind constitutionality."

Some consumers consider modified products risky and see few reasons to try them. A houseplant that purges carcinogens from the air might change that. Stuart Strand, research professor in civil and environmental engineering at the UW, is quoted.
