Google Is Tackling The High-End Market With Android P

Google wants to make Android P feel more high-end...more like an iPhone. I'm not sure if that's a good idea or not, because current users obviously like the design. It's clearly going to be a trade-off of what user crowd they want to appeal to. Google definitely needs to improve their customer service though, I've read too many 1 star reviews on their Google Store -- and experienced a less than substantial experience with them myself.

#Aberdeen Enterprizes II
A newly expanded federal lawsuit seeks class-action status for thousands of Oklahoma residents it says are being extorted by a collections company working for most of the state's sheriffs and courts.

If successful, the suit could impose sweeping changes on how the state -- which ranks No. 1 in locking up women and No. 2 in locking up men -- operates and pays for its justice system.

An investigation in September by Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting and The Frontier, an Oklahoma-based news site, examined the state's high female incarceration rate.

The federal lawsuit over court debt-collection practices, originally filed late last year in the Northern District of Oklahoma, took on new importance last week when attorneys filed a motion for class-action status and two prominent legal groups joined the case.

The suit names sheriffs in 54 counties, judges and court officials along with Oklahoma-based Aberdeen Enterprizes II. The private, for-profit company contracts with the sheriffs to collect unpaid court fines and fees owed by people charged with traffic offenses, misdemeanors and felonies.

The suit claims that the company orders the arrest and jailing of people too poor to pay their court debts, without legally required court hearings into their ability to pay.

"If an individual explains that she is too poor to pay the lump sum and offers to make periodic payments instead, Aberdeen, Inc. refuses, as a matter of policy, to accept a lesser amount. Aberdeen, Inc. does so because the threat of living under the shadow of an arrest warrant coerces individuals owing debt to sacrifice basic necessities, to beg others for money, and to divert money from means-tested disability payments," the suit claims.

The lawsuit alleges its seven plaintiffs have been harassed by the company over unpaid court costs and face arrest and jail because they failed to pay what the company requested. The suit claims civil rights violations as well as extortion under the RICO Act.

Tens of thousands of people in the state could be eligible for damages and could have their warrants recalled if the judge grants class-action status. About 80 percent of the state's criminal defendants are eligible for public defenders and, in one county alone, 22,000 people are wanted for failure-to-pay court costs.

Most of the state's court system is funded by criminal defendants themselves through fines and a long list of fees tacked on to even traffic offenses.

The Oklahoma Sheriffs' Association receives a cut of Aberdeen's collections and earned more than $825,000 from the arrangement in 2016, the suit claims. An investigation by The Oklahoman found the association reaped millions from its Aberdeen deal, spending funds on travel, a new building, advertising and paid lobbyists. The association hosted Attorney General Jeff Sessions at its meeting in October.

The executive director of the Sheriffs' Association called 2018 "probably one of the biggest defensive years that this association has ever had. We are going to have to stop a lot of legislation. There will be attempts on cutting fines, fees and costs."

Like rude relatives who jump in front of your vacation snapshots of landscapes, some of our solar system’s asteroids have photobombed deep images of the universe taken by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope.

These asteroids reside, on average, only about 160 million miles from Earth — right around the corner in astronomical terms.

"Because astronomers previously thought that Andromeda was up to three times as massive as the Milky Way, they expected that our galaxy would be easily overpowered and absorbed into our larger neighbor. But now, new research suggests we’ve overestimated our opponent."

"In a study published today in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, a team of Australian astronomers announced that Andromeda is not actually the heavyweight we once thought it was. Instead, they found that our nearest galactic neighbor is more or less the same size as the Milky Way — some 800 billion times the mass of the Sun."

Saturday, February 17th marks the 5,000th local day (sol) of operations for NASA’s Mars Opportunity rover, which was originally designed to last for just 90 sols after its January 2004 landing date, but has instead continued to set milestones like completing a marathon-length tour of its surroundings and taking huge composite photos of its new world’s surface.
