Despite calls for conservation during one of California’s worst droughts, more than 255,000 homes and businesses in the state haven’t installed water meters, the most basic tool of water management.
A mistake at the worst possible time.
Shameless self promotion!
If you like the things I write about find me on Twitter and say so! Or if you don’t then you can tell me to sod off!
I have to get better at Twitter for class so I’m doing a cross promotion thing.
If you don’t want to ever seen non-journalist stuff then block Nonthematic post on Savior and you won’t see any more.
Newsweek’s print mag is back! Our 1st issue hits news stands on 3/7. So excited!
Turkey ‘ranks first in journalist arrests’
While attention is generally focused on journalists arrested in Egypt, Al Jazeera reports that it’s Turkey which leads the way.
The report states that 63 journalists remain behind bars in Turkey according to the Committee to Protect Journalists.
For context in 2013 Turkey had 26 journalists imprisoned, though now I question the accuracy of that number.
These new numbers are startling when compared to other countries infamous for jailing journalists such as China (30), Eritrea (26), Iran (20), and Syria (19). (All numbers from 2013).
This is my favorite thing ever.
