$2billion

It Could, But it Probably Won't

I love how every news story I read about the JPMorgan $2 Billion dollar loss notes that it could lead to renewed momentum for stricter federal oversight of financial firms, or it could diminish Jamie Dimon’s anti-regulation influence, or it could raise difficult questions about Wall Street risk-management practices.

It could, sure, but it probably won’t.

Shadow Treasurer Curtis Pitt says the LNP now wants to use $3.4 billion in proceeds from asset sales to divert attention from its 2012 broken promise to cut power bills.

“At the same time as it exhausts the reported $3.4 billion subsidy fund, the LNP will wave goodbye forever to annual income of $2 billion from the assets it has earmarked for sale,” Mr Pitt said.

psy is at 2billion but other artists are reaching 1billions, do you think someone will beat out psy??(this ywaer) do you want that

I think they will. But I think psy also has a thing about him that just makes his music and videos so catchy and interesting to SOOOO many people. Like people couldn’t help but watch gangnam style to see what the hype was about, and then they went back because it was catchy. So idk if other artists have that same quality<3

Mapping Police Violence in Los Angeles
For this collaborative research project we worked with the Youth Justice Coalition (YJC), a South Los Angeles community organization. During the spring of 2011, we came together to understand how gang injunctions work as a tool of racist spatial regulation and management. YJC runs a youth community center and an alternative high school for system-involved […]

Also: Inglewood, a small city within Los Angeles County, has become the first entirely gang injuncted city in the nation. It happened a couple of years back around the time Walmart purchased all the space where the Hollywood Park Casino stands and years of rumors of a football team coming to Los Angeles became a foreseeable definite. I wonder what a map tracking gang injunction related citations and police violence would look like then (when Inglewood was first injuncted), now (that is has been cited as a gang injuncted area), and by the end of the Rams first season playing at the new 2billion dollar stadium being built in Inglewood. 

If you think the police violence taking place in Inglewood right now isn’t directly linked to gentrification and development efforts ask the Youth Justice Coalition. They’ll tell you.

UK Doubles Its Investment In Syria And The Region To £2.4Bn Ahead Of International Summit

The UK will invest at least an extra £1.2billion to fund education, jobs and humanitarian protection in Syria and the region, David Cameron has announced.

The cash will invested over the next four years, and will be directed at projects in Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey
The government made the pledge ahead of a meeting involving delegates from 70 countries and international organisations in London to debate support for the world’s biggest humanitarian crisis.

The UK has already promised to spend £1.12billion in the region, making it the second biggest bi-lateral donor in the world and today’s announcement will see an extra £1.2billion-plus being spent between 2016 and 2020, taking the UK’s total investment to more than £2.3billion.

Mr Cameron said: “With hundreds of thousands of people risking their lives crossing the Aegean or the Balkans, now is the time to take a new approach to the humanitarian disaster in Syria.

“Today’s pledge of more than £2.3billion in UK aid sets the standard for the international community – more money is needed to tackle this crisis and it is needed now.

“But the conference I am hosting today is about more than just money. Our new approach of using fundraising to build stability, create jobs and provide education can have a transformational effect in the region – and create a future model for humanitarian relief.

“And we can provide the sense of hope needed to stop people thinking they have no option but to risk their lives on a dangerous journey to Europe.”

The Supporting Syria and the Region Conference will be co-hosted by the UK, alongside Germany, Norway, Kuwait and the United Nations.

It will aim to raise billions of dollars in international aid, with the current UN appeal standing at more than $7billion.

It will also aim to build economic opportunities, creating job opportunities for refugees and host country citizens as well as seeking to put all refugee children in education by 2017 – along with vulnerable children in the three host countries.

In addition, the conference will aim to make lives better for those still remaining in Syria, by funding food, shelter and healthcare, and rebuilding health facilities.

The conference is expected to send out a strong joint message reinforcing the importance of humanitarian rights in Syria.

It is expected to stress that siege is not an acceptable tactic of war; that all people must have access to humanitarian support; and that all sides must respect humanitarian law.
