News Notes

Between 2010 and 2014, Chicago saw 70 fatal police shootings, more than any other police department in the U.S. during that time.

Zero transgender people have been arrested for engaging in sexual acts in public bathrooms. That’s just what we know. On the other hand, 3 (or at least what we know) ever-so-Christian Republicans (aka. self-loathing homosexuals) have been arrested for having sex in public bathrooms. Dan Avery, a writer with NewNowNext, pointed out this fact last month. Obviously we need laws against senators using bathrooms, not trans people.

There are more than 550 million blue crabs in the Chesapeake Bay, an increase of more than a third over this time last year and one of the highest counts of the past two decades, according to state officials. They credit favorable weather and past harvest restrictions for a second straight year of strong crab population growth.

While the acreage of genetically modified crops declined in 2015, the NY Times reports that "Three countries — the United States, Brazil and Argentina — account for more than three-quarters of the total global acreage. And only four crops — corn, soybeans, cotton and canola — account for the majority of biotechnology use in agriculture. In many cases, more than 90 percent of those four crops grown in those three countries, and in other large growers like Canada, India and China, is already genetically modified, leaving little room for expansion."
