Protests and prisons

Last month, I attended a protest outside a Nestlé water-bottling facility in South Los Angeles and spoke to a woman in an orangutan mask who objects to the world's largest food and beverage company profiting from the out-of-state sale of drought-stricken California's water. You can read my account here.

Earlier this week, California's state senate approved a bill that would strictly limit the use of solitary confinement at juvenile detention facilities. When I asked the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to comment on the legislation, I was told that there is no such thing as "solitary confinement" in California, the people who say they experienced it apparently mistaken (the state says the presence of a television, or the ability to take correspondence courses, means one is not truly in isolation). Read my report here.

  3. The
    Sobha Dream Acres
    Apartment by Sobha Limited is a seamless fusion of residential blocks with large open spaces and luxurious amenities that have been carefully integrated to allow residents a seamless transition from their apartment into the society that is always around them. The openness of each home is further accentuated by the enormous glass facade to maximize space and sunlight, as well as the use of vertical green elements such as manicured plants and trees.
