Deaths in jail may be on the rise, according to a new report released today by the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics.

During 2012, 958 inmates died in jail, according to the report, up 8 percent from the 889 deaths in 2011. The report also examined deaths in state prisons, which remained nearly unchanged between 2011 (3,353 deaths) and 2012 (3,351).

However, the population of inmates at state prisons decreased in 2012, which means the mortality rate actually increased about 2 percent.

Jails are run by local law enforcement, and typically hold inmates who have not yet been sentenced or have received relatively short sentences. Prisons are run by state corrections departments and inmates typically have longer sentences.

The majority of deaths in jail (55 percent) and prison (88 percent) in 2012 were related to illnesses, such as heart…

Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. is selling its flagship hotel, the historic Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan, for $1.95 billion, illustrating the heated competition–particularly among foreigners–for famous luxury properties that only a few years ago struggled to fill their rooms.

The Waldorf sale, to Anbang Insurance Group Co. of China, carries the steepest price tag ever for a U.S. hotel, brokers say, although it isn’t the highest on a per-room basis.

Anbang is paying about $1.4 million per room. Asian buyers in recent years have acquired the Plaza Hotel and the Carlyle Hotel at prices that exceeded $1.4 million-a-room, according to hotel data tracker STR Analytics. Not long ago, $1 million per room was considered the high-water mark.

The Waldorf, which opened in 1931, has 1,413 rooms and covers a full city block on Park Avenue, making the Art Deco landmark one of the largest luxury hotels in the world. Former…

How should newspaper front pages cover Isis propaganda Videos?

Posted a day ago by in News HERE SOME LINES…

From the front page of the Independent on Sunday, 5th Oct 2014

Following the murder of British hostage Alan Henning, there seems to have been a slight change of tack in the way newspapers cover these despicable Isis propaganda videos.

As Joan Smith, executive editor of Hacked Off, explains in today’s Independent on Sunday:

I can’t help thinking, ‘At last.’ Why did it take so long for some sections of the media to recognise the huge ethical problems inherent in showing pictures, taken by perpetrators, of human beings undergoing extreme psychological trauma.

We have a responsibility as journalists to report on these murders, but we don’t have to reproduce slavishly the most horrific Propaganda.
