Sgt. Welton Simpson Jr. drives his police SUV through the Boyd-Booth neighborhood in Southwest Baltimore. The area has long been one of the most impoverished and segregated parts of town. For years, officials all but gave up on it.But today, the streets look a little cleaner. Fewer weeds are threatening to take over. More lights are fixed.Simpson passes a corner that was once a hub for drug dealing. It’s all clear.“Our increased patrols seem to have reduced the trafficking that was going on,” he says.“For the most part, it’s working.”In Baltimore’s most crime-ridden zones, city officials are conducting an experiment in government. They started last year by targeting four small, deeply troubled areas to be flooded with more police patrols and city services. They called them “Transformation Zones,” at first, then rebranded them as “Violence Reduction Zones.” They’ve since added three more zones, bringing the total to … [Read more...] about In Baltimore’s high-crime zones, an experiment in government starts to yield results
The following is the script from the January 13, 2008 story "The Face Behind Facebook." Lesley Stahl was the correspondent. Shachar Bar-On, producer. Are you on Facebook yet? The site is up to 60 million users so far, with a projection of 200 million by the end of the year. If you're not on Facebook, here's how it works: you set up a profile page with details about yourself and then decide who gets to see it. Friends use their pages to share personal news, exchange photos, team up on political causes, or just play long-distance Scrabble. It can be a useful tool or an addictive waste of time. Either way, Facebook is having a dramatic impact on the World Wide Web and it's estimated to be worth $15 billion. Sitting atop this growing company, directing an Internet revolution is a young, geeky computer programmer who created the site only four years ago. This is the face of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, the mogul who's guiding its extraordinary growth. What everyone wants to know is, is he … [Read more...] about A young Mark Zuckerberg’s early mistake
By Rick Hurd | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: April 6, 2018 at 6:08 am | UPDATED: April 6, 2018 at 6:16 am An “atmospheric river” of precipitation continued to bear down on the Bay Area early Friday, even as brief periods of rain overnight provided a preview for what may be ahead. “The heaviest of it is going to come this afternoon,” National Weather Service meteorologist Brian Garcia said Friday morning. “That ‘atmospheric river’ we’ve been speaking still hasn’t hit the coastline yet.” The precipitation, part of a “Pineapple Express” system so dubbed because it gathers its steam from warmer waters near Southern California, dumped less than a half-inch in area of the East Bay overnight, Garcia said, while the South Bay remained relatively dry. By storm’s end, as many as 2-4 inches are expected in the Santa Clara Valley, Santa Cruz Mountains and East Bay Hills, while areas … [Read more...] about ‘Pineapple Express’ bears down on Bay Area as rain starts to fall
PERIODS are painful and irritating to endure, but it's really important to keep an eye on them – because prolonged irregularity could be a major warning sign of a bigger health issue. So how do you know when something's amiss with your monthly cycle? We asked Anna Druet, chief science researcher at ovulation tracking app Clue, to advise. She says: "Firstly, it's important to define what exactly is 'normal' and what is 'irregular' when it comes to periods. "A 'normal' period usually refers to a period that typically happens every 24 to 38 days for adults, and lasts between four to eight days. In that time, you can shed anything between 5-80ml of blood (that's up to six tablespoons). An average period sheds two to three tablespoons (35-40ml) of blood and tissue. People who are in the upper five to six tablespoons are considered to have heavy menstrual bleeding. "The typical 5-80ml amount would use between three to 16 regular absorbency tampons or pads per cycle, but you can also … [Read more...] about Ask the Expert: Should I be worried about my irregular periods?
