Ahmaud Arbery death: Three white men go on trial in high-profile shooting death of Black jogger
Over a year after he was shot dead while out jogging, trial in the Ahmaud Arbery case is set to begin on Monday with jury selection.
As many as 600 people have been asked to report to a court in Georgia for jury selection, as three white men, Greg McMichael, his son Travis and their neighbour William Bryan, are tried for murder and other crimes in relation to the shooting that resulted in the death of the 25-year-old Black male. According to AP, the jury selection process is expected to last at least two weeks with the case facing local and national scrutiny. At least 1,000 court notices were sent to potential jurors by Glynn County court officials. From the pool of 600 that is expected on Monday, potential jurors in groups of 20 will be summoned to the courthouse, Glynn County Superior Court Clerk Ronald Adams told AP. Earlier, along with jury summons, prospective jurors had also been sent questionnaires asking them what they know about the case, their source of information and if they had commented on any social media posts related to Arbery’s killing or if they had visited the site of the killing."

>What is it like to go without a partner when you long for one - and when even a fleeting sexual connection feels impossible?
>When a woman named Alana coined the term "incel" in the late 90s, she couldn't have predicted the outcome. What started as a harmless website to connect lonely, "involuntary celibate" men and women has morphed into an underground online movement associated with male violence and extreme misogyny.
>In 2014, Elliot Rodger stabbed and shot dead six people in California, blaming the "girls" who had spurned him and condemned him to "an existence of loneliness, rejection and unfulfilled desires". There have since been numerous attacks by people who identify with incel culture, including Jack Davison, who killed five people in Plymouth this summer, before turning the gun on himself. In the darkest corners of the internet, incel groups have become a breeding ground for toxic male entitlement, putting them on hate crime watchlists across the UK.
>But it is not just incel men who struggle to find sexual connections in the modern world. Some young women are turning to online "femcel" spaces to discuss the challenges they face as involuntary celibates.
>Theirs is a non-violent resistance. Rather than blaming the opposite sex for their unhappiness, as some of their male counterparts do, femcels tend to believe their own "ugliness" is the root cause of their loneliness. Posting anonymously on platforms they have designed for themselves, they argue that they are invisible due to their abnormal appearance, and that our beauty-centric, misogynistic culture prevents them from being accepted. There is anger and open grappling with self-esteem, but no extreme hatred and no sense of entitlement within the community.

4.3 million people quit their jobs in August, nearly 3 percent of the workforce
The number of people quitting their jobs has surged to record highs, pushed by a combination of factors that include Americans sensing ample opportunity and better pay elsewhere.
Some 4.3 million people quit jobs in August — about 2.9 percent of the workforce, according to new data released Tuesday from the Labor Department. Those numbers are up from the previous record set in April, of about 4 million people quitting, reflecting how the pandemic has continued to jolt workers’ mind-set about their jobs and their lives.
The phenomenon is being driven in part by workers who are less willing to endure inconvenient hours and poor compensation, who are quitting instead to find better opportunities. According to the report, there were 10.4 million job openings in the country at the end of August — down slightly from July’s record high, which was adjusted up to 11.1 million, but still a tremendously high number. This gives workers enormous leverage as they look for a better fit."

FRESNO, Calif. — Luis Madrigal-Reyes, 37, a native and citizen of Mexico, was sentenced today to two years and five months in prison for conspiring to manufacture, distribute, and possess with intent to distribute marijuana, Acting U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced.
Madrigal was also ordered to pay $48,000 in restitution to the U.S. Forest Service for the extreme damage that the cultivation operation had on public land.
According to court documents, the cultivation operation consisted of 2,307 marijuana plants in the Sierra National Forest in Madera County. U.S. Forest Service agents saw Madrigal carrying fertilizers into the grow site and later apprehended him after they chased him down the side of a mountain. The cultivation operation caused significant damage to the area, which serves as habitat for the Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frog, an endangered species and the California spotted owl, which is currently being considered for listing under the Endangered Species Act. Agents found deadly banned pesticides sprayed directly on the plants."

President Biden made a little bit of news when he visited Connecticut on Friday. "No," he said when reporters asked if he supported term limits for Supreme Court justices — one reform being considered by a commission Biden appointed. But the visit did underscore how children are being dragged into the culture wars being fought between adults.
Biden's first stop in Connecticut was the Capitol Child Development Center in Hartford, where he promoted the child care provisions of his Build Back Better proposal. He also visited the playground outside.
While Biden was mingling with the preschoolers, about 50 "Trump supporters" nearby "chanted 'F--- Joe Biden. He's not our president,'" Noah Robertson of The Christian Science Monitor wrote in a White House pool report. Pool reporters on the playground "could still hear protesters chanting from the curb outside. More expletives. More yelling," he added in a follow-up report, noting there were also "Ban Title 42" chants, "perhaps suggesting it wasn't a solely Trump-supporting crowd."
Audio pool reporter Scott Detrow of NPR News also remarked on the audible "F--- Joe Biden" chants, Fox News reports, as did The New York Times' Zolan Kanno-Youngs.
Children have also been dragged into adult fights on school diversity programs and mask requirements. CNN highlighted one ugly incident in Beverley Hills earlier this month, where anti-mask protesters accused parents of "rape" and "child abuse" as they walked their children to elementary school
"More and more, politics is defined by comparatively small groups of comparatively loud individuals dominating the discourse, when it is unclear whether they speak for anyone but themselves," Christopher Hooks writes at Texas Monthly, reporting on the ugly confrontations at school board meetings this summer and fall, often involving "at most, a few dozen angry protesters. Some are not even parents of children in public schools.""

String comment = ">Americans Remain Distrustful of Mass Media
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- At a time when Americans are relying heavily on the media for information about the coronavirus pandemic, the presidential election and other momentous events, the public remains largely distrustful of the mass media. Four in 10 U.S. adults say they have "a great deal" (9%) or "a fair amount" (31%) of trust and confidence in the media to report the news "fully, accurately, and fairly," while six in 10 have "not very much" trust (27%) or "none at all" (33%).
Gallup first asked this question in 1972 and has continued to do so nearly every year since 1997. Trust ranged between 68% and 72% in the 1970s, and though it had declined by the late 1990s, it remained at the majority level until 2004, when it dipped to 44%. After hitting 50% in 2005, it has not risen above 47%.
The latest findings, from Gallup's annual Governance poll conducted Aug. 31-Sept. 13, are consistent with all but one recent trust rating -- in 2016, a steep decline in Republicans' trust in the media led to the lowest reading on record (32%).
While majorities of Democrats have consistently expressed confidence in the media since 1997, this has not been true of independents since 2004. Republicans' last majority-level reading for trust in the media was in 1998."
