Danielle IvoryThe two staff members in the unit where Jeffrey Epstein was held falsely recorded that they had checked in on him every half-hour, as required, two government officials told the @nytimes. One official said the guards were sleeping.
Revenues were down about 4 percent compared with 2017. Business was up slightly at his hotel in Washington and down nearly 10 percent at Mar-a-Lago.

T.M. Landry, a school in small-town Louisiana, has garnered national attention for vaulting its underprivileged black students to elite colleges. But the school cut corners and doctored college applications.
Danielle IvoryStudents were forced to kneel on rice, rocks and hot pavement, and were choked, yelled at and berated. Incredible story by @EricaLG @ktbenner
Danielle Ivory“The school falsified transcripts, made up student accomplishments and mined the worst stereotypes of black America to manufacture up-from-hardship tales that it sold to Ivy League schools hungry for diversity.” By @EricaLG @ktbenner
Danielle IvoryThis story about a Louisiana school is so so so good from start to finish, but make sure you stay until the end when things get totally crazypants. @EricaLG @ktbenner
Inmates expose themselves and threaten rape. Male guards let them do it. Women who complain are ‘pretty much blackballed.’

Everyone knew Whitey Bulger had enemies. Some question how they got to him so quickly, right after he was transferred to a West Virginia prison.

The U.S. maternal death rate is among the highest in the developed world. Eighteen states haven't studied these deaths and others tend to blame moms.
Danielle IvoryOh, I see that this article is going to make me angry.
Today, the US is the most dangerous place in the developed world to deliver a baby. And instead of scrutinizing medical care of mother who died, states scrutinized their lifestyle choices.
The number of migrant children being housed by the Health and Human Services Department, which oversees the shelter system, has increased more than fivefold since last summer.
Danielle IvoryPopulation levels at federally contracted shelters for migrant children have shot up more than fivefold since last summer, according to data obtained by the @nytimes, reaching a total of 12,800 this month. @itscaitlinhd
The bill includes a proposal to reformulate income and expense criteria for the recipients of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

A draft report by the Department of Health and Human Services contradicts a central argument made by advocates of deep cuts in refugees.
Danielle IvoryThe Trump administration, under pressure to rationalize why fewer refugees should be let into the US, has suppressed a government study that found refugees brought in $63 billion more in government revenues over the past decade than they cost.
