Specifically, it explores the characteristics of criminal offenders and victims; the historically unprecedented level of incarceration in the United States; and evidence on both the fiscal and social implications of current policy on taxpayers and those imprisoned. Read the full introduction Crime and high rates of incarceration impose tremendous costs on society, with lasting negative effects on individuals, families, and communities. Rates of crime in the United States have been falling steadily, but still constitute a serious economic and social challenge.
How far does the scale need to tilt before people begin to open their eyes? The vast majority of global populations are still completely oblivious to the gravity and immediacy of what is unfolding around us all.
Epidemic denial is theme of the day on all sides of the climate issue. The reality is this, the "worst case" predictions of the climate science community fall far short of how severe the climate situation actually is.
Some, astoundingly, deny that there is any problem with the climate system at all, even while the planet descends into total meltdown. Others like most of academia acknowledge the damaged climate but refuse to admit to the ongoing global geoengineering programs.
In May ofFrench foreign minister Laurent Fabius stated we had " days to avoid climate chaos ". Was Fabius betting on the delusional hope of geoengineering saving the day and helping us to avoid the "climate chaos" he referred to?
The equation we face is as non-linear as it could be. Unfolding climate cataclysms are already overturning the paradigm we have all formerly known. We all have a responsibility to help in the battle to expose and halt the climate engineering insanity, make your voice heard.
Though the report below does not admit to the climate engineering elephant in the room, the front line data is still completely relevant, and absolutely shocking. One that taps warm tropical air and hurls it all the way to the North Pole and beyond during Winter time.
This burly mb beast roared out of an increasingly unstable Baffin Bay on Christmas. As it rounded Greenland and entered the North Atlantic, it pulled behind it a thousand-mile-wide gale force wind field even as it lashed the tip of Greenland with Hurricane force gusts. To its east, the storm now links with three other lows.
Lows that are, even now, drawing south-to-north winds up from a region just west of Gibraltar, on past the UK, up beyond Iceland, over Svalbard, and into the Arctic Ocean itself. GFS forecasts predict a storm bombing out between and mb over Iceland by Wednesday.
A warm storm for the Arctic Winter time. Over the next few days these three lows are predicted to combine into a storm the likes of which the far North Atlantic rarely ever sees. This storm is expected to center over Iceland.
But it will have far-reaching impacts ranging from the UK and on north to the pole itself. As the lows combine, GFS predicts them to bomb out into an unprecedentedly deep low featuring to mb and possibly lower minimum central pressures by this coming Wednesday.
These pressures are comparable to the very extreme storm systems that raged through the North Atlantic during the Winter of Systems that featured minimum pressures in the range of to mb.
In the far north, a January 11 storm between Iceland and Scotland featured mb pressures. By comparison, Hurricane Sandy bottomed out at around mb as well. Regardless of peak strength, the expected storm is predicted to be both very intense and wide-ranging as both model forecasts feature numerous lows linked in chain with a much deeper storm center near Iceland.
Among these and further north, two more strong lows in the range of to mb will round out this daisy chain of what is now shaping up to be a truly extreme storm system. The Icelandic coast and near off-shore regions are expected to see heavy precipitation hurled over the island by 90 to mile per hour or stronger winds raging out of foot seas.
Meanwhile, the UK will find itself in the grips of an extraordinarily strong southerly gale running over the backs of 30 foot swells.
Such temperatures are in the range of more than 40 degrees Celsius 72 degrees Fahrenheit above average. All along the eastern side of this storm, powerful warm winds are expected to funnel northward.
Originating along the 35 degree North Latitude line west of Spain, these winds will force a train of warm air and moisture pole-ward ahead of our storm.
The winds will rush up over a very riled North Sea, they will howl into a far warmer than normal Barents, and they will roar on past Svalbard — finally turning as they pass beyond the North Pole. These winds will bring with them extraordinarily warm temperatures for the High Arctic region during Winter time.Gismondi.

Income inequality in the United States has increased significantly since the s after several decades of stability, meaning the share of the nation's income received by higher income households has increased.
This trend is evident with income measured both before taxes (market income) as well as after taxes and transfer payments. Income inequality has fluctuated considerably since.
