These billionaire philanthropists funded Baltimore’s spy plan surveillance program

According to emails obtained by the Baltimore Sun, a controversial police program that used spy planes to surveil Baltimore was only possible because of funding from billionaire philanthropists Laura and John Arnold. Wait, it gets weirder. They were inspired to contribute after listening to a popular NPR show.

I personally loved cosplaying Rey because it was such a delight for the kids! They didn’t care that I didn’t look exactly like the character (for obvious *skin color* reasons) They just instantly recognized a character that they loved and wanted to take a picture with me. That’s the way it should be ☺️💋

A water wheel in Baltimore has removed over 313 tons of trash from the Inner Harbor. In just 18 months,‘Mr Trash Wheel’ successfully cleaned more than 6 million cigarette butts, 200,000 plastic bottles, 255,000 Styrofoam containers, 173,000 chip bags, and 4,000 glass bottles out of the city’s notoriously polluted river.

Mr. Trash Wheel has a lot of work to do.


Mr. Trash Wheel also has a Twitter account.

And a sense of humor.

And a pretty nice view…

… thanks to himself.

So apparently, no one killed Freddie Gray. Baltimore state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby expressed her anger and frustration at a press conference this afternoon, saying that her office still believes that Gray did not kill himself. 

But as the nation continues to grapple with seemingly frequent deaths and abuse of African-Americans at the hands of the police, Mosby reiterated a reality that black communities know all too well. Even when the facts are on the victim’s side, justice seems elusive.

Instead of getting detention at Baltimore’s Robert Coleman Elementary, you get meditation. Rather than making a trip to the principal’s office, students practice meditation and breathing in the Mindful Moment Room, a brightly colored ‘oasis of calm’, and it’s working. Since starting the program in 2014, the school hasn’t issued a single suspension. Source Source 2
