FRAMINGHAM, MA — Nearly 200 criminal justice practitioners and academics gathered at Framingham State University on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 for the 2nd Annual People of Color in Criminal Justice (POCCJ) Conference.The daylong conference focused on issues of importance to individuals of color working in the criminal justice field was co-hosted by the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office and Framingham State University. This year’s conference included morning remarks by NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Equity & Inclusion Dr. Tracie L. Keesee and a keynote address by Asha Rangappa, a senior lecturer at Yale University’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs and CNN contributor.“I want to thank Framingham State, all our partners and especially Dr. Keesee and Ms. Rangappa for lending their expertise today,” said Middlesex Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian. “Each and every day, the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office and our law enforcement partners work to ensure we are meeting the needs of those we serve, while also providing effective support for those tasked with carrying out our important public safety missions. This second annual conference is part of our continuing effort to ensure we are providing those critical supports to our employees.”“It’s an honor to partner with Sheriff Koutoujian and his office on this important event,” said Framingham State University President F. Javier Cevallos. “It’s important to address the issues that people of color who work in and around the criminal justice system face, and I believe this conference can serve as model for other agencies throughout the country.”This year’s conference featured a half-dozen workshops, including a town hall style conversation led by Deputy Commissioner Keesee on resiliency-based support for career services; a presentation led by Boston Police Officer Nicole Grant regarding strategies for youth engagement in communities of color; and a discussion led by Massachusetts Department of Correction Officer Allyson Hale on issues of gender identity, inclusion and creating healthy and welcoming professional environments. Additional workshops focused on justice reinvestment led by Suffolk University Professor Carlos Monteiro, while Juror Project founder, and Orleans (Louisiana) public defender, William Snowden spoke about reforming the criminal justice system through the jury box.In addition to members of the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office and Framingham State University, the conference’s steering committee included representatives of the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, Hampden County Sheriff’s Department, Harvard University Police Department, Cambridge Police Department, Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department, Lowell Police Department and the Boston Police Department.Middlesex Sheriff Peter J.

But it did offer a tantalizing tidbit as part of its latest earnings.The consumer electronics giant has an active install base of more than 900 million iPhones, Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestra said on a conference call with analysts on Tuesday. The number is up year over year, with 75 million units added to the total over the last 12 months, he said.The number offers a little clarity on the health of Apple’s iPhone business, which suffered a 15 percent decline in revenue in the fiscal first quarter. But be wary of these types of numbers: companies tend to cherrypick the statistics they share to put their business in the most favorable light. Maestra said Apple would share the active installed base figure “periodically.” See It Comments Formerly known as the Google Home Hub, Google’s Nest Hub packs a wealth of Google Assistant goodness into a 7-inch screen. At $59, this is within a buck of the best price we’ve seen.

Turo: Save $30 on any car rental Earnings Apple,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. See at Turo Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30.

Senator Mark Begich last week visited the three lower Yukon River villages of Marshall, Alakanak, and Emmonak. He heard from dozens of people about infrastructure needs, and issues such as the importance of subsistence and the need for local law enforcement.Download Audio:Democrats have the majority in the U.S. Senate by just six seats. So the race for Senator Mark Begich’s spot is being closely watched across the country. And many rural Alaskans know he’s counting on their votes to win reelection. Here are two employees of the Yukon Fisheries Development Association chatting as they left a public meeting with Begich held in Alakanak, a village of about 700 people. Offshore Fisheries Director Eric Olson comments on the significance of the election to General Counsel Gerry Davis:“It’s pretty interesting to think that the votes that could control, that could decide, control the U.S. Senate could have been in that room”… “I know.”… “It’s just amazing.”At a community meeting in Emmonak, city administrator Martin Moore praised Begich for coming to hear about local concerns, while reminding him of the importance of addressing Emmonak voters’ concerns:“There are over a thousand people here in Emmonak. Of those thousand people, we have four hundred people that will vote. That’s important for you and for me to know and to understand that. So your trip here is very important both for you and important for the people who believe in your work,” Moore says.But even though Begich, and Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, both serve on the Senate Appropriations Committee, Begich says because Congress no longer allows earmarks, it’s hard for the Alaska delegation to get funds inserted in the budget for specific projects. Plus, he says, Congress has tightened its purse strings:The national deficit’s been so bad but in the past six years, we’ve gone down from 1.4 trillion dollar deficit per year down to about half a trillion, moving in the right direction. And the economy is much stronger now in the lower 48. So everybody is feeling better about budgets this year. We bumped them up a little bit, budgets overall. So now we’re having some window where we can probably look at these programs again and see what we can do.As residents talked about the need for erosion control, ports, housing, and water and sewer projects, Begich said the Alaska delegation has been able to get some laws changed to set aside money for places like Alaska, and is working to do more:You know when you go to a city like Seattle and there’s housing needs for thousands of people, and here we’re looking for 10-15-20 units, we get kind of lost in the mix. So what we want is to try and separate us out a little bit.Begich outlined work he’s already done to reduce energy costs, increase job training, and help with projects such as roads, runways, and a rock quarry project in Marshall. He described his support for subsistence, and the Senators and Cabinet officials who are learning about Alaska’s special needs by visiting, at his invitation.Still, the rural vote for Begich isn’t assured, as Robert Andrews, the head of a boat-building shop in Emmonak made clear. He told Begich he could do more to help fishermen, saying “If I vote for you, you better think about us back here.”Sen. Mark Begich and Robert Andrews, head of a boat-building shop in Emmonak. Andrews told Begich, “You’re helping a little bit now and then. Sometimes you deny the CDQs, but sometimes you agree with them … If I vote for you, man, you better think of back here.” Photo by Joaqlin Estus, KNBA.
