The Babylonians

It all started around 3000 BC with the Babylonians. They were one of the world’s first civilisations, and came up with some great ideas like agriculture, irrigation and writing. They plotted the paths of the Sun, the Moon and the planets, and recorded them on clay tablets (which you can still see in the British Museum). To the Babylonians we owe the modern ideas of angle, including the way that the circle is divided up into 360 degrees (owing to a small miscalculation, one per day). We also owe the Babylonians for the rather less pleasant invention of the (dreaded) taxman. And this was one of the reasons that the Babylonians needed to solve quadratic equations.

if $x$ is the length of the side of the field, $m$ is the amount of crop you can grow on a square field of sidelength 1, and $c$ is the amount of crop that you can grow, then

\[ c = m x^2. \]

 Quadratic equations and areas are linked together like brothers and sisters in the same family. However, at the moment we don’t have to solve anything – until the tax man arrives, that is! Cheerily he says to the farmer “I want you to give me $c$ crops to pay for the taxes on your farm.” The farmer now has a dilemma: how big a field does he need to grow that amount of crop? We can answer this question easily, in fact

\[ x = \sqrt { \frac{c}{m} }. \]

The numbers -15, -5, -3, -1, 1, 3, 5, and 15 are all factors of 15 because they divide 15 without a remainder.
Factoring is an important process in algebra which is used to simplify expressions, simplify fractions, and solve equations.

A composite expression is similar in that it can be written as the product of two or more expressions. For example: x2 + 3x + 2 is composite because it can be written as (x + 1)(x + 2). (Recall that the FOIL Method shows that (x + 1)(x + 2) is equivalent to x2 + 3x + 2.) Here, (x + 1) and (x + 2) are factors of x2 + 3x + 2.

In general, a number is a factor of another number if the first number can divide the second without a remainder. Similarly, an expression is a factor of another expression if the first can divide the second without a remainder.

Definition

A prime number is a number greater than 1 which has only two positive factors: 1 and itself. For example, 11 is a prime number because its only positive factors are 1 and 11.

Factoring is a process by which a the factors of a composite number or a composite expression are determined, and the number or expression is written as a product of these factors. For example, the number 15 can be factored into: 1 * 15, 3 * 5, -1 * -15, or -3 * -5. The numbers -15, -5, -3, -1, 1, 3, 5, and 15 are all factors of 15 because they divide 15 without a remainder.

Introduction To Factoring

A composite number is a number that can be written as the product of two positive integers other than 1 and the number itself. For example: 14 is a composite number because it can be written as 7 times 2. In this case, 7 and 2 are called factors of 14.

After Supreme Court Ruling, States Act on Juvenile Sentences

In 1980, Henry Hill was sentenced to life in prison without parole. He was 16 years old and functionally illiterate.

Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Miller v. Alabama that mandatory life sentences for offenders under 18 are cruel and unusual punishment, and therefore unconstitutional. In the wake of that decision, a federal court this month ruled that Hill and more than 300 other Michigan children lifers are entitled to a parole hearing.

A 10-year-old boy, charged with murdering his mother, sits with leg irons in a courtroom in Millersburg, Ohio. The Supreme Court last year struck down mandatory life without parole sentences for juveniles, prompting varying reactions from states. (AP)

So, On Whom Does Responsibility Rest for Crack Cocaine, Drug Markets and Easy Access, To Guns ?

 FROM:  THE LIVES OF JUVENILE LIFERS | FINDINGS FROM A NATIONAL SURVEY  Part of the reason for the rise in sentencing children to life in prison was the upswing in crime in the late 1980s and early 1990s, fueled  by the emerging crack cocaine drug markets and easy access to illegal guns.

3  By 1993, the rate children arrested had tripled from a decade earlier.

4  Policymakers, the media, and the public listened to dire warnings from some that, “…on the horizon…are tens of thousands of severely morally impoverished juvenile superpredators.”

5  These so-called “superpredators” never arrived; moreover, the arrest rate for children was already declining when this statement was made, and homicide rates among juveniles have dropped steadily since 1993.

The arrest rate

for 10 – 17- year-olds in

2008 of 4 per 100,000 represents a 74% decline

from the peak arrest rate for children

1993, 15 per 100,000

Nonetheless, driven by media reports of celebrated cases and public fear catch phrases such as “adult crime, adult time” were popularized. #Alec  responded with a frenzy of unconstitutional laws ts, catch phrases such as “adult crime, adult time” were popularized. Policymakers responded with a frenzy of tough laws tt disregarded developmental differences between youth and adults, and instead focused exclusively on the crime.

State legislatures #ALEC chipped away at the founding principles of the juvenile justice system by passing laws that opened the trap  for young people to be transferred to and tried in adult courts, thus circumventing the very courts that the U.S. had created to prevent child abuse. By the mid-1990s, every state had passed laws that either allowed or mandated that children be tried as adults. As a result, there was a steep rise in the number of  children sentenced to life without the possibility of parole

Nationwide, there are roughly 2,500 inmates  are serving life in prison without parole, including 309 California inmates serving such sentences, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

“Because their brain is still developing, they have the ability to rehabilitate,” said Michael Harris, a senior attorney at the National Center for Youth Law. “They are more likely to rehabilitate than an adult.”

California Assembly’s passage of a bill introduced by state Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco. The bill allows lifers to seek a sentence of 25-years-to-life with a chance for parole after serving 15 years.

in Pennsylvania, which has largest number of inmates whose sentences are covered by the Supreme Court ruling, the state Supreme Court has been considering the retroactivity question for over a year. The court’s decision could lead to the resentencing and eventual release of over 400 sentences.

In Michigan, Iowa, Illinois, Louisiana and Mississippi, judges have ruled that the Supreme Court decision applies retroactively to all prisoners serving such sentences. But in Minnesota and Florida, judges have ruled that the Supreme Court decision only applies to future cases.

State Supreme Courts in Illinois, Florida, Massachusetts and Colorado will likely consider the retroactivity question this fall, said Marsha Levick, chief counsel at the Juvenile Law Center, a legal advocacy group for youth.

Lawsuit: Hearings For Illinois Youth Are ‘Kangaroo Courts’

XX Sunday Morning-p10 dkCHICAGO (AP) Hearings used in Illinois to revoke a juvenile’s parole amount to “kangaroo courts” that deny fundamental due-process rights and lead to the illegal detention of hundreds of children each year, a lawsuit filed Wednesday alleges.

The 15-page class-action suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago, argues that putting so many young people behind bars not only costs taxpayers millions but also suggests it may lock some kids into lives of crime once they become adults.  The lawsuit, filed by Northwestern University Law School’s Roderick MacArthur Justice Center, names Illinois Prisoner Review Board Chairman Adam Monreal and Gov. Pat Quinn, and asks a judge to order the board to reform its procedures to comply with state and federal law.

exposed America’s cash for kids

scandal Pennsylvania – PA

in Pennsylvania, which has largest number of inmates whose sentences are covered by the Supreme Court ruling, the state Supreme Court has been considering the retroactivity question for over a year. The court’s decision could lead to the resentencing and eventual release of over 400 sentences.  Less than a minute into the hearing the gavel came down. “Adjudicated delinquent!” the judge proclaimed, and sentenced her to three months in a juvenile detention centre. Hillary, who hadn’t even presented her side of the story, was handcuffed and led away. But her mother, Laurene, protested to the local law centre, setting in train a process that would uncover one of the most egregious violations of children’s rights in US legal history.

Last month the judge involved, Mark Ciavarella, and the presiding judge of the juvenile court, Michael Conahan, pleaded guilty to having accepted $2.6m (£1.8m) from the co-owner and builder of a private detention centre where children aged from 10 to 17 were locked up.

The cases of up to 2,000 children put into custody by Ciavarella over the past seven years – including that of Transue – are now being reviewed in a billowing scandal dubbed “kids for cash”. The alleged racket has raised questions about the cosy ties between the courts and private contractors, and about the harsh treatment meted out to adolescents.

American Legislative Exchange Council

During the late 1980s and early 1990s, state and local governments passed tough crime legislation. For example,  California passed the “three strikes and you’re out” law which called for mandatory sentencing of repeat offenders, and New York adopted the “Broken Windows” strategy that called for the arrest and prosecution of all crimes large and small.  #GovJerryBrown

The precedent was set in August of 2009 when California was federally-mandated to release over 40,000 prisoners in two years. The next step is for @ALEC  to DEFY federal mandate by implementing #prisonIndustry in Canada and the US.

CHILDREN WITH PARENTS IN PRISON

  • In 2007, 1.7 million children had a parent in prison on any given day.
  • The number of children with parents in prison increased 80% between 1991 and 2007.
  • 1 in 15 black children, 1 in 42 Latino children, and 1 in 111 white children had a parent in prison in 2007.

Black children are 7.5 times more likely and Hispanic children are 2.6 times more likely than are white children to have a parent in prison.

Children in Prison Industry

 In the beginning stages of Vernon’s incarceration it was hard especially being only sixteen amongst grown men, murderers, gang bangers and robbers.  It wasn’t no Disneyland, but he made it and as they say “Only the Strong Survive” and he’s done just that…..Survive!

From Jr. High School to #PrisonIndustryFaking for stripes

Born in Los Angeles, California Vernon Steward was a young active go hard in the paint type of juvenile.  He started writing as a hobby, really just the lyrics of his own raps.  He always was inspired by 2Pac and his wisdom and his big cousin taught him a few things too.  After getting in some trouble and going to prison so young Vernon realized it was a major blow to himself and his family.  However while being incarcerated He grew up to be a man, a great man, an intelligent young black man at that!
Vernon’s writings didn’t begin until he started his struggle day in and day out using it as a form of positive release.  It wasn’t until later that he realized he could really do something with it, and being incarcerated did not always have to be the end.  Incarceration at an early age for most may have been the end of the road.  However Vernon used life’s lessons as inspiration and motivation to put a pen to a piece of paper and allow his own thoughts and experiences to flow making for incredible pieces of literary greatness.

Closing the PipeLine

The United States #PrisonIndustry stands alone worldwide in imposing sentences of life without parole on juveniles. The U.S. achieved this unique position by slowly and steadily dismantling founding principles of the juvenile justice system. Today a record number of people are serving juvenile life without parole (JLWOP) sentences in the U.S. for crimes committed before their 18th birthday. Sentences of life without parole are often erroneously believed to translate to a handful of years in prison followed by inevitable release. The reality is that a life sentence for a child without parole means that the Baby will die in prison. Copyright @ 2012 by The Sentencing Project.

Mississippi is a state long recognized for it’s systemic and systematic racism and bigotry, particularly towards Black Americans.

The findings by theMississippi Department of Justice expose this latest case of Jim and Jane Crow-ism to the world with its findings that Black students were being disproportionately targeted for a ‘School to Prison’ pipeline.

The Equal Justice Initiative reports:

Meridian police automatically arrest public school students when called by school officials, often without determining if there is probable cause. Students are then put on probation, sometimes without proper legal representation, and are required to serve any subsequent suspensions from school in the juvenile detention center.

The system has led to students being incarcerated in the detention center for dress code violations, flatulence, profanity, and disrespect.

“The students most severely affected by these practices are black children and children with disabilities in Meridian,” the Justice Department said in a letter to Mississippi’s governor, attorney general and various officials in Meridian and Lauderdale County.

“These entities, working in conjunction, help to operate a school-to-prison pipeline that routinely and repeatedly incarcerates children for school disciplinary infractions,” the letter alleged.

If the matter isn’t corrected soon, the Department has said it will sue the Lauderdale County Youth Court, the Meridian Police Department and the Mississippi Division of Youth Services, a division of the state Department of Human Services.

This article was written by JG Vibes and originally published at The Intel Hub

On Wednesday civil rights lawyers filed a lawsuit against the local government of Meridian, Mississippi, and other defendants for operating what has been called a school-to-prison pipeline in which students are denied basic constitutional rights, sent to court and incarcerated for minor school infractions.

The lawsuit says children who talk back to teachers, violate dress codes, and commit other minor infractions are handcuffed and sent to a youth court where they are denied their rights.

According to CNN:

“Also among the defendants were Lauderdale County, judges of the county’s Youth Court and the State of Mississippi Division of Youth Services.

About 6,000 mostly African-American students attend grades kindergarten through 12 in a dozen schools in the Lauderdale County School District.

Deputy Assistant Attorney General Roy Austin said Wednesday that Mississippi officials had failed to cooperate with the eight-month investigation.

“We had no choice but to file suit,” Austin said, giving examples of what he alleged are unconstitutional actions taken by the school district and court which include:

• Children are handcuffed and arrested in school and incarcerated for days at a time without a probable cause hearing.

• Children detained wait more than 48 hours for a hearing, in violation of constitution requirements.

• Children make admissions to formal charges without being advised of their Miranda rights.

• Children are not routinely granted legal representation during the juvenile justice process.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1.         Summary of the Recommendation 

This recommendation encourages the federal government, states, and school districts to pass laws and implement policies that will secure the right of every child to a high-quality education.   It also encourages attorneys and bar associations to help secure that right through improvements in state and federal law, representation of students, parents, and organizations, and community legal education.

2.         Summary of the Issue that the Resolution Addresses

Despite widely shared belief that every child deserves a high-quality education and ever growing recognition that a good education is essential both for individual opportunity and for societal well-being, fulfillment of that right remains out of reach for many, and disproportionately so for children of low-income families, children of color, children with disabilities, and other distinct groups.   And while some existing laws require that certain elements of a high-quality education be provided to at least some students, those provisions of law are often not well understood, implemented, or enforced.  The setting of standards for what students should achieve and for measuring whether students achieve it must be accompanied by actions to identify, and ensure that students get, the quality education that will enable them to achieve.  Without that, the goals remain unreached and the right unfulfilled.

3.         Please Explain How the Proposed Policy Position will Address the Issue

The recommendation seeks to address the barriers to making the right to a high-quality educational program a reality by calling upon state and federal legislative bodies and state, federal, and local education agencies to adopt and implement laws and policies that: (a) define the contours of that right, i.e., the core elements of a high-quality educational program to which every child is entitled; (b) ensure that schools provide those elements and have the resources to do so effectively; (c)  focus the functions of the agencies which oversee schools — federal Department of Education, state education departments, and school districts — on fostering schools’ provision of those elements of quality; (d) improve implementation and enforcement of existing provisions of law related to the provision of high-quality education; (e) enable students and their families to  and strengthen their voices in decisions that affect the quality of education they receive.   The recommendation calls upon attorneys and bar associations to help facilitate these efforts in seeking improved laws and policies, in representing children and their families to remedy denial of rights to high-quality education, and in community legal education and other assistance to help parents, students, schools, school systems and others understand and obtain improved implementation of laws advancing the right to high-quality education. Those very basic actions – defining the right and then aligning the programs of schools, the functioning of overseeing education agencies, implementation and enforcement of relevant existing laws, the voice of beneficiaries, and the active engagement and support of the bar – are necessary to attain that right.

False flag (or black flag) describes covert military or paramilitary operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them. Operations carried out during peace-time by civilian organizations, as well as covert government agencies, may by extension be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organization behind an operation. Geraint Hughes uses the term to refer to those acts carried out by “military or security force personnel, which are then blamed on terrorists.”
