Peaches! Peaches! My car smells like peaches! 😍 🍑🍑🍑

There’s a time and space for acceptance. It’s okay to step back and take care of my heart and take care of my spirit. I give so much of my self that I lose myself in others and it takes me a while to recollect the pieces I didn’t know was given away. It feels to good feel my own heart and be there while giving back to myself. It feels powerful and reminds me of how strong I really am.

On February 25, 2014, Orange is the New Black author Piper Kerman testified at the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee hearings on solitary confinement in Washington, DC. Unlike her fictional character, Kerman was never placed in solitary confinement. But she testified about the many women incarcerated alongside her who had:

While I was in prison, I saw many women sent to the SHU for minor infractions such as moving around a housing unit during a count, refusing an order from a correctional officer, and possession of low-level contraband like small amounts of cash (which is largely useless in prison) or having women’s underwear from the outside rather than prison-issued underwear. All of these infractions drew at least 30 days in solitary. Sometimes women are sent to the SHU immediately upon their arrival in prison because there aren’t any open beds.

Most politicians would rather ignore the reality of the problems with the prison system than address them head-on and risk being seen as “soft on crime.”Orange is the New Black—and Kerman’s determined attempt to link the peoples’ interest in the fictional story to real women’s suffering—has helped get Americans talking about prison in a way few pieces of pop culture have. It’s also a way to get people talking about women in the prison system rather than focusing the conversations around men. It’s also a sad truth that politicians and Americans in general are more likely to listen to a celebrity telling them about prison conditions than someone who didn’t become famous after being incarcerated. To her credit, Kerman (unlike some other celebrities who have experienced short stints behind bars) has been using her platform to advocate for change.

Read the article: Can “Orange is the New Black” Change the Way Congress Thinks About Prisons? 

It sucks that it takes an upper-middle class white lady experiencing something for people to believe it’s a real thing, but I’m glad OITNB has sparked discussion about the inhumane way we treat prisoners in the U.S.

HOLY SHIT.

Things I love: laying around in green grass and shade from the trees, playing around with color, listening to L and his dad working together, and the time off to enjoy this without nonsense distractions.#nevertakethingsforgranted #ilovenature #pnw #mladventures

The FCC is moving ahead with their plan to replace its discarded open Internet rules with new ones that will allow Internet companies to pay for fast lanes, voting 3-2 in favor of the ISP-favored plan.

Here’s how it works. Under the FCC’s new rules, companies that deliver content over the Internet like Netflix, Amazon Instant, YouTube, and even PolicyMic could now pay ISPs for direct access to their customers. Those who don’t pay will be treated like all other data, even if they need to relay high-capacity things like streaming video or cloud storage. That means paying companies’ content will arrive much faster than content from other Internet companies, who will be stuck in a de facto slow lane. The end result is that companies that can’t afford to pay for special treatment will reach fewer people and be at a competitive disadvantage in the marketplace.
