{ object.primary_image.title }}

8 Can’t Wait, from Deray Mckesson’s Campaign Zero, offers a quick blueprint for simple use-of-force policies that have been associated with fewer deaths. In many cities in the U.S., police departments don’t have a ban on chokeholds and strangleholds—despite the fact that the practice can seriously injure or kill civilians. In cities that do have these bans, police officers have killed 22% fewer people. Similarly, many cities don’t have a policy that requires officers to make a report every time they use or threaten to use force against civilians.

A new study looks at how quickly the largest ecosystems in the world could be lost after they reach critical tipping points. The larger the ecosystem, they found, the faster it can change. And the Amazon could reach that tipping point and disappear within 50 years. Read Full Story

The pandemic forced this founder to slow down so he could accelerate long-term growth

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The CEO of Farmer’s Fridge shares tips for recalibrating as quarantine enters its sixth month. I was staring out at a sea—or should I say a grid—of blank faces. It was the town hall portion of our weekly all-company meeting, and an employee asked me directly how long I thought this work-from-home arrangement would last. I gave my unfiltered opinion: I did not see a return to life as we knew it for a couple of years (if ever).
