Retro-”Plantations” and Chain-gangs… A Disturbing Trend in Agriculture: Prisoner-Picked Vegetables | TakePart

Lodge’s bill is one of many similar measures introduced across the country in the last 10 years. From Vidalia onions in Georgia to watermelons in Arizona to apples in Washington to the potatoes of southern Idaho, prisoners are increasingly called on to harvest the food Americans eat.

Israeli forces clash with worshipers in Aqsa compound, dozens hurt | Maan News Agency

Dozens of worshipers were hurt Wednesday morning in fierce clashes with Israeli forces who stormed the al-Aqsa Mosque compound via the Moroccan and Chain gates.

Witnesses told Ma’an that Israeli soldiers and police officers broke into the compound and deployed in the southern quarter firing stun grenades and rubber-coated bullets at worshipers.

South Korea ferry disaster

Nearly 300 people were still missing Wednesday several hours after a ferry carrying 459, most of them high school students, sank in cold waters off South Korea’s southern coast, killing at least two and injuring seven, officials said.

There were fears, however, of a big jump in the death toll, as dozens of boats, helicopters and divers scrambled to rescue passengers who had been on the ferry traveling to the southern tourist island of Jeju. One passenger said he believed that many people were trapped inside the ferry when it sank. (AP)

Who knew the sight of women eating could cause so much controversy? This week the London-based media has been debating a Facebook group showing just that. With over 21,000 members, the Women Who Eat on Tubes group features candid shots of women using a trip on London’s subway system to catch up with a meal. As the group grew, comments on its pages became more overt in their latent misogyny, as if there was something inherently grotesque in a woman having an appetite and being in need of some food. To make the intrusions greater, the photos’ captions also identified when and on which tube line they were taken, and what the woman was eating, as this journalist who featured on the site learned.
Of course, the group is just one of various candid photo sites currently doing the rounds. It’s not entirely dissimilar to the romanticized images of young women of Buenos Aires Chicas Bondi or its male London equivalent, the tumblr and Twitter account Tubecrush. It also has some kinship with public behavior shaming sites like Singapore’s STOMP – though that wouldn’t exonerate it from charges of creepy intrusion – even though eating on London’s Tube is neither uncommon nor against any particular rule. 

-These Women Wish You’d Stop Taking Pictures of Them Eating on the Tube

Yeah, the site’s owner claims to be celebrating women, but captions a photo of three women eating as “Three Little Pigs”.
Here’s my suggestion for acting like a decent human being when it comes to taking photos of a stranger: Are you comfortable asking them permission to post the photo online? No? THEN DON’T TAKE THE GODDAMN PICTURE AND POST IT, YOU DOUCHECANOE.

This is terrifying. This isn’t just about taking photos of ‘a’ stranger. This is a group culture which aims to punish women for eating.

Truth.

Being rude to women makes too many guys feel good - has to do with guys being dorks?

A ship sunk in the southwestern coast of South Korea this morning. It was carrying 450 people and 325 of them being students who were on their way to a field trip to a nearby island. Fortunately, no one has been reported missing or hurt or dead. They’re all just waiting to be rescued. Please, let’s keep them in our prayers. These kids must be scared out of their minds. 

Rescue in progress.

A woman was killed and two men were injured in a shooting outside a busy market in the Liberty City area of Miami, Fla., Monday night. Witnesses said a man with a handgun in each hand opened fire on a crowd of people. “It seemed like a war zone,” a witness said. Police are searching for the gunman, who fled on foot.

Juliet Lynch, 7, was shot in the chest and killed when a 5-year-old boy fired a gun he mistook for a toy at a birthday party in Gaston, S.C., Saturday night. The boy was trying to get a toy gun out of a trunk when he picked up a real gun, which was also in the trunk. The gun reportedly belonged to the boyfriend of the boy’s mother. The sheriff said charges could be filed.
